"We can only live these changes: We cannot think our way to humanity. Everyone of us, and every group with which we live and work, must become the model of the era, which we desire to create. The many models which will develop should give each one of us an environment in which we can celebrate our potential---and discover the way into a more humane world."
- Ivan Iilich
