Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.

    That’s why the school yard is such a place of sociological and technical advancement? I suppose I can agree with his thought to a certain degree. Most real advancement is probably accidental/

    Here’s my favorite Robbins quote, good advice for all of us!

    “When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on–series polygamy–until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.”

    He sounds a little bitter, doesn’t he!! ;-)
