When two upon a journey go, one sees before the other.

Many hands make light work.

Such hath it been – shall be – beneath the sun, The many still must labour for the one.

[Lord Byron – The Corsair 1814]

I don’t want any yes-men around me. I want everybody to tell me the truth even if it costs them their jobs. [Samuel Goldwyn]

Families and communities are the ground-level generators and preservers of values and ethical systems. No society can remain vital or even survive without a reasonable base of shared values … They are generated chiefly in the family, schools, church, and other intimate settings in which people deal with one another face to face. [in Etzioni (1993) p31]

… the twenty-first-century-minded leaders … will be community grassroots leaders who specialize in and articulate a local and regional vision and will work in national assembly-type organisations where all corners of the … community are able to come to the table to discuss their needs economically, socially and politically. [Hesselbein et al (1988) p209]
