Denise Morrison, CEO of Campbell Soup...On Diversity

"Diversity in a company doesn't happen by chance.  It absolutely takes a leadership imperative.  And you need to declare that you are going to become a more diverse organization because it's good for business.  The consumer is diverse for any business...and therefore it just makes good business sense."  --Denise Morrison, Chief Executive Officer, Campbell's Soup

We Are Still Called To Love...Sidney Williams

"Praying for members of our community who would rather die than conform to the standards of this world. We cannot tolerate bullying and prejudice against people because of our personal discomfort. There will always be differences in human choice, but we are still called to love another - even those who we define as enemies. The truth is, the greatest enemy is the enemy within that makes us feel that we have the right to bully or rob others of their dignity."  

--Rev. Sidney Williams, Pastor, Bethel A.M.E., Morristown, New Jersey.

Are You A World-Changer?...Steve Jobs

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.  
--Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011), Co-Founder, Chairman, & former Chief Executive Officer of Apple Computer

Have The Courage To Follow Your Heart...Steve Jobs

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."  
--Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011), Co-Founder, Chairman, & former Chief Executive Officer of Apple Computer (Stanford University Commencement, 2005)
