Loving quotations…redux

September 17, 2018

Hey thanks you all who read my blog. You sent such cool quotations to add to my quotations!!!

From Vicki James: “Fundraising allows ordinary people to change the world.” [YES! Ordinary people. Because philanthropy should be a democratizing activity…not just a major donor/major gift / wealthy thing!!!

Alex Cooper says: “My favourite, concise quote/directive is ‘every interaction is an ask’ – ingraining this in the organizational culture can sometimes be difficult but it is definitely a game-changer in terms of amplifying the narrative at every touchpoint once it’s in place.”

Bonnie Katusich gave me the total quote from Marianne Williamson, which I shared in my original blog:  “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, talented, gorgeous, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people per mission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

And there are more quotes to come!!!
