“We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.”
Anais Nin

Everyone’s just about out of gumption


“My personal feeling is that this is how any further improvement of the world will be done: by individuals making Quality decisions and that’s all. God I don’t want to have any more enthusiasm for big programs full of social planning for big masses of people that leave individual Quality out. These can be left alone for a while. There’s place for them but they’ve got to be built on a foundation of Quality withn the individual involved. We’ve had that individual Quality in the past, exploited it as a natural resource without knowing it, and now it’s just about depleted. Everyone’s just about out of gumption. And I think it’s about time to return to the rebuilding pof this … resource … individual worth.”
