  • The music of difference, all alive. / The founders and this people, who set in diversity / The base of our living.

  • It is through the acceptance of a variety of aesthetic and intellectual points of view that a culture is given breadth and density.

  • The facts are in: diverse companies and teams consistently outperform all others. It's not only the smart thing and the right thing, it makes getting the job done much more interesting.

  • There is nowhere you can go and only be with people who are like you. It's over. Give it up.

  • Good schools, like good societies and good families, celebrate and cherish diversity.
