"...society honors its living conformists and its dead troublemakers."  (Mignon McLaughlin)

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."  (Albert Einstein)

"Afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted."  (Anonymous)

"Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature."  (The Prophet Mohammad)

"Coarse talk does not come into anything without disgracing it, and modesty does not come into anything without adorning it."  (The Prophet Mohammad)

"Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart."  (Anne Frank)

"Human nature will only find itself when it finally realizes that to be human it has to cease to be beastly or brutal."  (Mohandas Gandhi, In Search of the Supreme)
