Benton MacKaye Quotes

My own doctrine of organization is that any body of people coming together for a purpose (whatever it may be) should consist of persons wholly wedded to said purpose and should consist of nobody else.

There should be plenty of discussion and disagreement as to how and the means but none whatever as to ends.
