#Quote
1[on one his writing procedures] Hanging upside down can really make you think in different ways.
2I'm now aware that when I write something, a lot of people talk about it. On some level I feel that if you've been given a podium of any sort, you should say something meaningful and powerful.
3There is a statistic I heard a number of years ago: if you know somebody who is 85 years old, that person was born into a world that had a third as many people as the world has today. The population has tripled in the past 85 years. Futurists don't consider overpopulation one of the issues of the future. They consider it 'the' issue of the future.
4I consider myself a student of many religions. The more I learn, the more questions I have. For me, the spiritual quest will be a life-long work.
5Two thousand years ago, we lived in a world of Gods & Goddesses. Today, we live in a world solely of gods. Women in most cultures have been stripped of their spiritual power.
6That is the definition of faith - acceptance of that which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove.
7If I'm not at my desk by 4:00 a.m., I feel like I'm missing my most productive hours. In addition to starting early, I keep an antique hourglass on my desk and every hour break briefly to do push-ups, sit-ups, and some quick stretches. I find this helps keep the blood and ideas flowing.
