The following quotations contain the core values and philosophy of TheFerrantiFoundation:

"The longest journey is the journey inwards. Of him who has chosen his destiny, who has started upon his quest for the source of his being. The more faithfully you listen to the voice within you, the better you will hear what is sounding outside. And only he who listens can speak. Is this the starting point of the road towards the union of your two dreams - to be allowed in clarity of mind to mirror life and in purity of heart to mold it?"

“What you have to attempt – to be yourself. What you have to pray for – to become a mirror in which, according to the degree of purity of heart you have attained, the greatness of life will be reflected.”

-Dag Hammarskjold, Markings

“Anything that creates emotional ties between human beings...Everything that leads to important shared action creating such common feeling...On them the structure of human society in good measure rests.”

Sigmund Freud to Albert Einstein

“The Thou meets me through grace – it is not found by seeking. The relation to the Thou is direct. No system of ideas, no foreknowledge, and no fancy intervene between I and Thou...as it plunges out of its isolation into the unity of the whole...No aim, no anticipation intervene...every means is an obstacle. Only when every means has collapsed does the meeting come about. All real living...is meeting.”

Martin Buber, I and Thou
