“Generation Z is desperate to change the world we’ve inherited,” an undergraduate said. “When will older leaders get out of the way?”
Do the elders have to step aside for the young to step up, or can we find a way to work together?– from CoGeneration
I’m reminded of this wonderful quote from George Bernard Shaw, that I first heard in a Pachamama Alliance workshop.
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.George Bernard Shaw
