We all learn in school that the judicial, legislative and executive branches of government must check and balance each other. But other non state institutions must participate in this important system of checks and balances as well. These checking institutions include the academy, the media, religious institutions and NGOs.
“Great things are brought about and burdens are lightened through the efforts of many hands anxiously engaged in a good cause.”
“Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don’t strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt.”
“I believe we have a responsibility, even if our job is to lead a nonprofit organization, as private citizens to be good citizens and to make our voices heard.”
“People are yearning to be asked to use the full measure of their potential for something they care about.”
“Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people.”
“If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.”
