Regeneration is not only about bringing the world back to life; it is about bringing each of us back to life. It has meaning and scope; it expresses faith and kindness; it involves imagination and creativity. It is inclusive, engaging and generous. Everyone can do it.
The bottom line is that to change the world, you have to throw a better party than those destroying it.
There’s no ideal world but you have to move towards it.
At the end of the day, people are vital in a business’s long-term success. If people don’t feel looked after, heard or included, what’s their incentive to strive for a company’s mission?
If we as humans can respect that we are part of a mysterious world order—one which we do not completely understand—we can stay humble and grounded and recognize that our time on earth is meant to experience its wonders, not to accumulate its wealth.

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
Progress is impossible without change.
And those who cannot change their minds
cannot change anything.
Never doubt that a small group
of thoughtful, committed citizens
can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
