• Organizational Values

    Presence

    "The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present."

     

    ― Eckhart Tolle

    Imagination

    "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."

     

    ― Albert Einstein

    Stewardship

    “Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

     

    ― Martin Luther King Jr.

    Craftsmanship

    "Art is all about craftsmanship. It's what unites memory or recollection, ideology, sentiment, nostalgia, presentiment, to the way we express all that. It's not what we say but how we say it that matters."

     

    ― Federico Fellini

    Fun

    "People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing."

     

    ― Dale Carnegie

    Co-creativity

    “An individual can’t create anything itself. All of our dreams come true with the cooperation and co-creation of other souls.”


    ― Hina Hashmi

    Humility

    "Greatness is not found in possessions, power, position, or prestige. It is discovered in goodness, humility, service and character."

     

    ― William Arthur Ward

    Gratitude

    "Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

     

    ― Melody Beattie

    Evolution

    "Control is for Beginners. Iteration is truly the mother of invention."

     

    ― Deborah Mills-Scofield
