TOTD 27 Dec 2001

Motivation and inspiration energize people, not by pushing them in the right direction as a control mechanism but by satisfying basic human needs for achievement, a sense of belonging, a feeling of control over one's life, and the ability to live up to one's ideals. Such feelings touch us deeply and elicit a powerful response.

-John Kotter

Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.

-Storm Jameson

you bring fire?

*Very* stimulating quotes about what it means to be human! I even forwarded them to a non-lj-reading friend.

I'm curious about the accompanying image. You as a collector of inspiration? Blended there with the nature shot on an implied continuum of human needs?

Image de-construction
That's not what I had in mind when I created the image, but it sounds great to me.
