"This lack of neutrality about the world points to how we are actively engaged within it. We do not operate from a wholly separate place, we are embedded in the world, its objects providing structure for our actions and as focuses for the creation of meaning and purpose. This is accomplished by the selectivity with which we conduct our lives and out of which we form our beliefs.”

When principal Jim Sporleder tried his New Approach to Student Discipline at Lincoln Alternative High for "problem kids" in Walla Walla, WA, he was blown away.  Because it worked. In fact, it worked so well that he never went back to the Old Approach to Student Discipline.  http://acestoohigh.com/2012/04/23/lincoln-high-school-in-walla-walla-wa-tries-new-approach-to-school-discipline-expulsions-drop-85/

"Persecution on one hand can be a debilitating experience when felt in conjunction with not having any support. However, persecution, or at least the feeling of it, can be rather beneficial when one feels supported by a community. This is exacerbated more so by the human tendency to hold even more tightly to one’s beliefs when feeling attacked.”

"Remember, the human tendency concerning beliefs is to continue supporting what already exists. Developmentally, we accept beliefs first and only later learn to analyze them. This framework continues throughout our lives.”
