Mission Statements

Ich will unter keinen Umständen ein Allerweltsmensch sein.
Ich habe ein Recht darauf, aus dem Rahmen zu fallen, wenn ich es kann.
Ich wünsche mir Chancen, nicht Sicherheiten.
Ich will kein ausgehaltener Bürger sein, gedemütigt und abgestumpft, weil der Staat für mich sorgt.
Ich will dem Risiko begegnen, mich nach etwas zu sehnen und es zu verwirklichen, Schiffbruch au erleiden und Erfolg zu haben.
Ich lehne es ab, mir den eigenen Antrieb mit einem Trinkgeld abkaufen zu lassen.
Lieber will ich den Schwierigkeiten des Lebens entgegentreten als ein gesichertes Dasein führen, lieber die gespannte Erregung des eigenen Erfolgs als die dumpfe Ruhe Utopiens.
Ich will weder meine Freiheit gegen Wohltaten hergeben noch meine Menschenwürde gegen milde Gaben.
Ich habe gelernt, selbst für mich zu denken und zu handeln, der Welt gerade ins Gesicht zu sehen und zu bekennen, dies ist mein Werk.

Albert Schweitzer

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves. Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us: It is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson


This is the true joy in life
the being used for a purpose you recognised by yourself as a mighty one;
the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap;
the being a force of nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

George Bernard Shaw

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of small children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to leave the world a better place, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know that one life has breathed easier because you existed.
This is to have succeeded

Ralph Waldo Emerson

To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich;
to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;
to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart;
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.
In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.

William Henry Channing
