Looking for quotes or bon mots to inspire, to make one think, or to make sense of crazy times, whatever one’s motivation, we can find fresh ones to reconsider. What makes a quote or mentor catch our attention? Is it because it supports something we already believe? Is it because it answers something for us we hadn’t known we were struggling to understand? Does it open up something inside of us once we realize it was said or done decades or centuries earlier and can still seem relevant? Or do we wonder if a quote has been attributed to someone and may or may not be accurate? Can it still have value regardless as a message in some form?

Seven blunders of the world that lead to violence: Wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice, politics without principle.

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
