“In today’s world, hoarding knowledge ultimately erodes your power. If you know something very important, the way to get power is by actually sharing it.” (Joseph Badaracco)

“Often, we are too slow to recognize how much and in what ways we can assist each other through sharing such expertise and knowledge.” (Owen Arthur)

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” (Steve Jobs)
