"... we're going to have to make things again, and raise things out of the earth, locally, and trade these things for money of some kind that we earn through our own productive activities."

Some quotes:
 “When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies?
 Perhaps to be too practical is madness.
 To surrender dreams, this may be madness.
 To seek treasure where there is only trash...
 Too much sanity may be madness!
 And maddest of all...
 to see life as it is and not as it could be!
 I am I, Don Quixote
 The Lord of La Mancha
 Destroyer of evil am I
 I will march to the sound
 Of the trumpets of glory
 Forever to conquer or die.”
    Don Quixote in “The Man of La Mancha” by Miguel de Cervantes
                   (my emphasis - Nick Santon)

“There is a river flowing very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore, they will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. 
Know that this river has its destination. 
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. And I say, see who is there with you and celebrate! 
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual journey and growth come to a halt. 
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. 
 We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

“We have a calling.  We are the people who know what we need.  What we need surrounds us.  What we need is each other.  And when we act together, we will find Our Way.  The citizen's way. The community way.  The democratic way.
 
“We are called to nothing less. And it is not so wild a dream.”

A note from Webmaster, Nick Stanton: When I started looking for quotes to represent what TTgb stands for I found I was drawn to quotes that focus on community and co-operation. 

I realized that community building is really what this is all about!                               

“Because there is a fear of sentimentality, love is not very often addressed – and it is really the one motivation in all of our lives.”
