Wisdoms and Thoughts


A person's ''GOOD CHARACTER'' denotes a combination of acquired knowledge, wisdom and resultant behavior; a grasp of rational reality; humility, fortitude and courage...wrapped within an inquisitive and distinctive personality.

By contrast ''a character''is merely a person with an instinct for eccentric self-drama that can be amusing, disturbing or disrupting... depending on the circumstances. --wj

GMT is a Humanist Organization. GMT values good character. GMT believes in integrity, honesty, respect for oneself, respect for others, decency, dignity, responsibility, fairness, caring and service to others. GMT believes in providing an "Education for Life" to the whole person and for all people. Education erases ignorance and, therefore, diminishes myth, mistreatment and a myopic life...and eventually will diminish injustice, poverty and poor health. We will be both giving and receiving education on GMT trips in pursuing our quest for better health.--wj

"Never underestimate the ability of a small group of committed individuals to change the world. Indeed, they are the only ones who ever have." – Margaret Mead...

The people who make the most cumulative differences in one's life are not the
ones with the most credentials, the most money, the most prestige or the most awards. They are the ones that care. At least, that is how it has been for me.--wj

"You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want." - Zig Ziglar

..."A brand is a person's gut feeling about a product, service, or company. It's not what you (the company) say it is, it's what THEY say it is."—sj
GMT is what YOU say it is.

My favorite patient memory was a home visit we took in Granada. The woman was very old, almost blind, and lived on her own. She welcomed us into her home and was very giving about information regarding her personal and family life. This opportunity allowed me to see first hand the kind of health care that is available to these people and made me fully appreciate everything GMT does and stands for. Here the doctor taught us about not only the health of the patient, but also about the way of life of many Nicaraguan individuals. It was truly incredible.- Heather Berman, Junior, University of Florida
