    Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it.
             Henry David Thoreau
    Everyone has failings, all humans have needs and temptations and stresses.  
    If at the end one can say, this person used to the limit the powers their creator
    granted: and was worthy of respect, then that
    life has been lived will.
    Eleanor Roosevelt
    Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel

    struggle to think well of themselves.
    T.S. Eliot
    Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll
    be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
    Eleanor Roosevelt
    In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity,

    Principles of Quality Improvement

  • You don't have to be sick to get better. Every system or process, every person,
    can be improved.

  • Good enough, isn't. The "if it's not broke, don't fix it mentality" promotes
    mediocrity that evolves to inferiority.

  • If you're not getting better, you're probably getting worse. Systems that do not
    adapt to changing circumstances not only become obsolete, often they become

  • There can be no improvement without change and change is scary.

  • All change involves risk, but failure to change involves greater risk.

  • No system is more powerful than the people who create or manage it. Systems,
    like belief patterns,  are created by the human mind and they can always be
    modified or abandoned by choice.

  • The quality of service cannot exceed the quality of the systems through which it
    is delivered. Bad processes, confusing, irrational or out-of-date policies will yield
    bad products and services; bad values yield bad choices.

  • Changing systems even slightly can be costly; not every improvement is worth
    the cost.
