"Transformationally motivated people are the growing edge of a great continuity of souls reaching back to the very earliest of times. We must never think of ourselves as alternative, far out, or disconnected. We are in fact the growing tip of the greatest tradition of both nature and history. Remember, the nature of nature is to transform. Those who tend toward transformation are nature personified. And in human history there has been a continuous and growing impulse toward the regeneration and transformation of humanity."
-- Barbara Marx Hubbard in her book Conscious Evolution (1998), p. 175
