Harper, J. (2011).  A Reason (and Season) to Stop Shunning.
"To survive as humans, we must rely on social support, and when we withdraw that support on the basis of unpopularity we might advance our own social survival, but we erode our own capacity for compassion and our own potential to be fully human and humane."
Norton, Q. (2014).  Against Productivity. Medium. Abstract
Productivity is a quality of perfect robots. Stories, adventures and all new things still have to come from messy humans.
Hallowell, E. M. (2006).  CrazyBusy : overstretched, overbooked, and about to snap : strategies for coping in a world gone ADD.
"Our task now is to learn how to use the technology we've invented, rather than allow it to use us, so that it improves our human connections, and does not replace them."
Pfeffer, J., & Sutton R. I. (2013).  Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths, and Total Nonsense: Profiting from Evidence-based Management. 274. Abstract
"As Dennis Bakke reminds us in his book Joy at Work, life is not just about performance, effectiveness, and efficiency.1 The very essence of being a sentient human being is the ability to make choices and take actions—to be responsible, in control of at least some aspects of our own life, and engaged in actively creating the world in which we live. To cede those tasks to others, even others who are benign and possibly wiser than us, is to deny the full experience of being fully human and alive." (p. 199)
Dent, H. S. (1995).  Job Shock: Four New Principles Transforming Our Work and Business.
"Charge a healthy fee for the right brain, more complex and human services where you don't compete with computers." (p. 236)
Hennig, M., & Jardim A. (1977).  The managerial woman.
It is healthy, creative and productive for men and women to express feelings as well as ideas and to use instinct as well as logic. When we consider the desirability of acknowledging the feelings of bitterness, anger, and hostility in a generation of men that has been asked to absorb hundreds of years of social injustice we must be encouraged to believe that if the feelings of these men could begin to be acknowledged perhaps then it will not take so much convincing and challenging to convince them of the need to work as hard as they can to ensure the inclusion of people who will insist that the world of work be more humane." (p. 200)
Pattakos, A. (2004).  Prisoners of Our Thoughts: Viktor Frankl's Principles at Work. 224. Abstract
"In some ways, our technological advances have redesigned work to better accommodate human factors. What we need now is a way to elevate the human spirit at work." (p. 6)
