Rachel Carson & Leadership

31 Oct

This week is the 50th anniversary of the publication of Silent Spring, a book that changed how government and business viewed and used chemical pesticides, particularly DDT.

The New York Times Business section occasionally does bios of leaders who had significant impact on our society.  An article by Nancy F Cohn entitled From Calm Leadership, Lasting Change is such a bio and a fine read.

I was particularly interested in her citation of Susan Cain’s book, Quiet, The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking.  Here is my favorite quote from her book about Isaac Newton:

Isaac Newton:  “A mind for ever/ Voyaging through strange seas of Thought, alone.”

–  William Wordsworth
