Managing Monday with Jimmy Carter – take 3

Posted by on Dec 11, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Jimmy Carter (1924- ) served as the 39th President of the USA from 1977-1981. He is unusual in that most commentators consider him to have been more influential and effective in his post presidency years than he was while president, a view reinforced by his being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, more than 20 years after he was ousted from office. Known for his strong Christian commitment, this is our third and final look at some of this insights…

  • God gives us the capacity for choice. We can choose to alleviate suffering. We can choose to work together for peace. We can make these changes – and we must. Jimmy Carter
  • The truth is that male religious leaders have had – and still have – an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or to subjugate women. They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter. Their continuing choice provides the foundation or justification for much of the pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world. Jimmy Carter
  • We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles. Jimmy Carter
  • What are the things that you can’t see that are important? I would say justice, truth, humility, service, compassion, love. You can’t see any of those, but they are the guiding lights of a life. Jimmy Carter

As always, nice chatting…
