Nasa earthrise apollo 8 1968

Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon, entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 1968.

Said Lovell, “The vast loneliness is awe-inspiring and it makes you realize just what you have back there on Earth.”

8/31 – Anderson and Adams on Mastering Leadership and the Integral Self

August-November 2016 / Leadership Quote

“The Integral Self is both fierce and compassionate. Fierce compassion heals. David Whyte says: ‘The blade is so sharp it cuts things together, not apart’ (Whyte, 1997).

3/7 – Leadership Quotes from Alexander Chizhevsky and Alexander Malakhov

January-February 2016 / Leadership Quote

January-February 2016 / Leadership Quote

Lev Gordon

“Giving words to one’s own stance, explicitly outlining and defining one’s position always, by default principles of our human universe, brings forth antagonistic counterreaction. Hidden, implicitly performed action, even if it is large-scale, attracts less attention: It softly enters the world and perpetuates itself as water soaking into fields, while ice stays on the surface.
