“The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into our mind, but how to get the old ones out. Every mind is a room packed with archaic furniture.
You must get the old furniture of what you know, think and believe out before anything new can get in”
Dee Hock – Founder of Visa
I don’t normally watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition but I happened to catch it tonight. Patrick Henry is a very inspirational person. During the show he had a great quote: “I see blindness not as a disability but more an ability and sight actually more as disability because some people with sight tend to judge others by what they see on the outside whereas I don’t see that, I just see that which is within a person. You hear all of the different color adjectives: black, white, red, yellow. Those have no meaning to me whatsoever, I just see that which is in a person.”
I am reading 1,000 Places to See Before You Die: A Traveler’s Life List (Paperback) and in one of the first chapters I found a great quote. “The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only one page.” -St. Augustine of Hippo
