Mediators of Southern California

Everyday I am inspired by music and quotes.


In dedication to this week being March Mediation week here are some of my favorite quotes and if anyone has some that they would like to share then just post it in the comment box below. I welcome all!


“The courts of this country should not be the places where resolution of disputes begins. They should be the places where the disputes end after alternative methods of resolving disputes have been considered and tried.”-Justice Sandra Day O’Connor


“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.” Gandhi


“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser—in fees, expenses, and waste of time.”
Abraham Lincoln

“Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict --alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence.”

Dorothy Thompson


“You can’t always get what you want;
You can’t always get what you want;
But, if you try sometimes,
You just might find,
You get what you need.”
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

“Conflict can be seen as a gift of energy, in which neither side loses and a new dance is created.”
Thomas Crum


"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."  Mother Teresa


"The conclusion is always the same: love is the most powerful and still the most unknown energy in the world."  Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


"It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."  Confucius
