Commitment to life

People do not respond for long to small and self-centered purposes or to self-aggrandizing work. Too many organizations ask us to engage in hollow work, to be enthusiastic about small-minded visions, to commit ourselves to selfish purposes, to engage our energy in competitive drives. Those who offer us this petty work hope we won’t notice how lifeless it is . . . when we respond with disgust, when we withdraw our energy from such endeavors, it is a sign of our commitment to life and to each other.
– Abraham Maslow
