"What I always found with meeting people - and I still do - is that that they're really inspirational. Makers are inspirational people."

"We're in this together, and I think we all need to work together to make a change."
"We have strengths and weaknesses, and we have to work together to play to those strengths - and not feel threatened by it. I think that's really the only way we're going to achieve equality."
We really relish the idea that creativity can come from all sorts. We have designers. We have architects. But we also have scientists, and we have activists.
We want to inspire by example. By that we mean, we always make sure to have a really good gender balance on stage, as well as people of different ethnicities. So, we mean real people, with real jobs, with real stories - so that people who come along and see someone that looks like them, and they can stat to be inspired.
The aim of the John Byrne award is to really get people talking about values, so that they can come to a greater understanding of what meaningful means for them; what a meaningful life means to them and, therefore, hopefully lead a meaningful life.
We live in a society today where we're bombarded by lots of messages, from all over the place. If their engaging us in thinking about things that maybe we don't value, then that's going to create tension. And maybe it's not healthy tension, but there's going to be a torque there pulling us - and, that could be one way that anxiety comes into our lives.
Mary values equality. She values her own ability to construct her own image, her public image, and to have control over that. And she values her independence, in being who she wants to be. You could say that society is infringing on her ability to express her values.
CreativeMornings Edinburgh The John Byrne Award: “Values and anxiety”
Values represent our guiding principles: our broadest motivations, influencing the attitudes we hold and how we act.
Finding internal peace is very strong, in that it keeps you focused on your goal, and it does not deviate you from your own goal, even in the middle of chaos.
For us to find global peace, we need to find internal peace before we strive toward it.
Finding that purpose, usually, after becoming lost, is the reason that gives you motive to wake up the next morning and become who you are.
When you hold a grudge against someone , it's like setting a fire inside of you. It's gonna burn you, while he's not even aware of what you have against him.
We are in a very difficult time globally, where there is a lot of tension happening, and we do need more magnanimous people.
Even chaos, it sounds very chaotic, it gives you ideas of being random and things going in different ways... however, there is order in the back of everything that happens.
There is something very meaningful and very deep about living in chaos.
