An enterprise is a community of human beings, not a collection of "human resources".


David Gurteen's comments: I hate the term "human resources" almost as much as I do "human capital". We are people, not resources or capital.

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.
