The future is not the result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created – created first in the mind and will and created next in activity.

The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating.

The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.” –John Scharr
