Edelman, R. C., Hiltabiddle T. R., Manz C. G., & Manz C. C. (2008).  Nice guys can get the corner office: eight strategies for winning in business without being a jerk.
"If there is an implicit agreement from the top down that excellence always comes first, then the primary criteria for judging ideas will always be excellence—not who talks the loudest or blows the most smoke." (p. 244)
Eliot, R. S., Breo D. L., & Debakey M. E. (1989).  Is It Worth Dying For?.
"In America, people are identified by what they do, to the point that it often seems they are their work—in the eyes of others and even in their own eyes. It's no accident that we introduce ourselves by telling what we do for a living. That's why losing a job, being out of the job market for a long time, having serious conflict at work, or feeling torn between work and home can threaten much more than a source of income. These job stresses can undermine one's sense of personal worth and identity." (p. 209)
Eliot, G. (1908).  The complete works of George Eliot....
"Perhaps here lay the secret of the hardness he had accused himself of; he had too little fellow-feeling with the weakness that errs in spite of foreseen consequences. Without this fellow-feeling, how are we to get enough patience and charity towards our stumbling, falling companions in the long and changeful journey? And there is but one way in which a strong, determined soul can learn it—by getting his heart-strings bound round the weak and erring, so that he must share not only the outward consequence of their error, but their inward suffering." (p. 309)
Ellis, A., & Lange A. (1994).  How to Keep People From Pushing Your Buttons.
"Sometimes we get terribly bent out of shape when someone treats us insensitively, manipulates us, takes advantage, or is downright unfair. Therefore, we are not suggesting that if you are treated unfairly, you roll over and say 'Hit me again, baby. Beat me to a pulp' or 'Well—ha, ha—nobody's perfect. Maybe they didn't mean it.' You can still decide to do everything possible to redress injustices and unfairness, whether they be personal or social, without overrreacting and becoming part of the problem." (p. 72)
Epstein, M., & Lama D. (2003).  Thoughts without a Thinker : Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective.
"The purpose of life is to be happy....
On its own no amount of technological development can lead to lasting happiness. What is almost always missing is a corresponding inner development." (p. ix, forward by the Dalai Lama)
Esty, K. C., Griffin R., & Hirsch M. S. (1995).  Workplace diversity.
"We think minimizing distinctions makes sense. Research informs us that employees who feel 'out' or 'down' rather than 'in or 'up' also have less job satisfaction, less commitment, and less loyalty to their organization. As an individual manager or supervisor, you can minimize the scrambling after titles and perks by the way you behave. You might consider, for example, moving to a less desirable office space or eliminating some perks based solely on status. Managers who have tried this are often amazed at the positive results." (p. 110)
Etzioni, A. (1994).  Spirit Of Community.
"If businesses would cooperate with parents to make it easier for them to earn a living and attend to their children, the corporate payoffs would be much more than social approbation: they would gain a labor force that is much better able to perform." (p. 67)
Evans, P. (2003).  Controlling People: How to Recognize, Understand, and Deal with People Who Try to Control You.
"Other people's definitions of us are not just absurd—if unchallenged, they erect prison walls around us. As they rise higher, the light of awareness fades. The world darkens. We lose freedom, safety, confidence, conviction, and sometimes ourselves." (p. 77)
