Author: Douglas Rushkoff

Author: George Monbiot

Lo buscaba de verdad, seriamente, y creía que, si me esforzaba, podría conseguirlo algún día. Pero, al final, eso no me conducía a ninguna parte. por más lejos que fuera, seguía siendo yo. Por más que me alejara, mis carencias seguían siendo las mismas. Por más que el decorado cambiase, por más que el eco de la voz de la gente fuese distinto, yo seguía siendo el mismo ser incompleto. Dentro de mí se encontraban las mismas carencias fatales, y esas carencias me producía un hambre y una sed violentas. Esa hambre y esa sed me han torturado siempre, tal vez sigan torturándome a partir de ahora."
Author: Haruki Murakami

That was as scary as life got back then.Five minutes later, life got a lot scarier."

27. "Another mistaken notion connected with the law of large numbers is the idea that an event is more or less likely to occur because it has or has not happened recently. The idea that the odds of an event with a fixed probability increase or decrease depending on recent occurrences of the event is called the gambler's fallacy. For example, if Kerrich landed, say, 44 heads in the first 100 tosses, the coin would not develop a bias towards the tails in order to catch up! That's what is at the root of such ideas as "her luck has run out" and "He is due." That does not happen. For what it's worth, a good streak doesn't jinx you, and a bad one, unfortunately , does not mean better luck is in store."
Author: Leonard Mlodinow
28. "People have a basic desire to feel good about themselves, and we therefore have a tendency to be unconsciously biased in favor of traits similiar to our won, even such seemingly meaningless traits as our names.

Author: Leonard Mlodinow

Author: Lisa Kleypas
31. "Our human race is affected by a chronic underestimation of the possibility of the future straying from the course initially envisioned (in addition to other biases that sometimes exert a compounding effect). To take an obvious example, think about how many people divorce. Almost all of them are acquainted with the statistic that between one-third and one-half of all marriages fail, something the parties involved did not forecast while tying the knot. Of course, "not us," because "we get along so well" (as if others tying the knot got along poorly)."
Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
32. "If students get a sound education in the history, social effects and psychological biases of technology, they may grow to be adults who use technology rather than be used by it."

Author: Peter Blair Henry
34. "Biasa: harta dengan kejamnya telah memisahkan ibu dari anak."
Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
35. "A boy is in the parlour what the pit is in the playhouse; independent, irresponsible, looking out from his corner on such people and facts as pass by, he tries and sentences them on their merits, in the swift, summary way of boys, as good, bad, interesting, silly, eloquent, troublesome. He cumbers himself never about consequences, about interests: he gives an independent, genuine verdict. You must court him: he does not court you. But the man is, as it were, clapped into jail by his consciousness. As soon as he has once acted or spoken with eclat, he is a committed person, watched by the sympathy or the hatred of hundreds, whose affections must now enter into his account. There is no Lethe for this. Ah, that he could pass again into his neutrality! Who can thus avoid all pledges, and having observed, observe again from the same unaffected, unbiased, unbribable, unaffrighted innocence, must always be formidable."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
36. "I may be biased, but I think jackals are cute and cuddly, even if they were known for digging up graves in Ancient Egypt."
Author: Rick Riordan
37. "I'm also old... and my own gift for writing fantasy grows out of very literal-minded, pragmatic soil: the things I do when I'm not telling stories have always been pretty three-dimensional. I used to say that the only strong attraction reality ever had for me was horses and horseback riding, but I've also been cooking and going for long walks since I was a kid (yes, the two are related), and I'm getting even more three dimensionally biased as I get older — gardening, bell ringing... piano playing... And the stories I seem to need to write seem to need that kind of nourishment from me — how you feed your story telling varies from writer to writer. My story-telling faculty needs real-world fresh air and experiences that create calluses (and sometimes bruises)."
Author: Robin McKinley
38. "Half of the time, the Holy Ghost tries to warn us about certain people that come into our life. The other half of the time he tries to tell us that the sick feeling we get in a situation is not the other person's fault, rather it is our own hang-ups. A life filled with bias, hatred, judgment, insecurity, fear, delusion and self-righteousness can cloud the soul of anyone you meet. Our job is never to assume---instead to listen, communicate, ask questions then ask more, until we know the true depth of someone's spirit."
Author: Shannon L. Alder
39. "Aku pun menyadari ada hidupku yang bias.... Namun, hujan dan kamu adalah cinta!"
Author: Sintia Astarina
40. "Like all religious people, Christians repress, remember, and retell their core stories selectively. They emphasize this episode at the expense of that episode, in keeping with their own biases and the preoccupations of their times."
Author: Stephen R. Prothero
41. "Ciri-ciri kesan Islam pada sejarah sesuatu bangsa harus dicari bukan pada perkara-perkara atau sesuatu yang zahir mudah ternampak oleh mata kepala, akan tetapi lebih pada perkara-perkara yang terselip tersembunyi dari pandangan biasa, seperti pemikiran sesuatu bangsa yang biasa terkandung dalam bahasa."
Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib Al Attas
42. "Bahwa kebiasaan menghafal itu tidak menambah kecerdasan, malah menjadikan saya bodoh, mekanis, seperti mesin.(Pendahuluan - Perpustakaan page 24)"
Author: Tan Malaka
43. "Cinta hanyalah segumpal perasaan dalam hati. Sama halnya dengan gumpal perasaan senang, gembira, sedih, sama dengan kau suka makan gilau kepala ikan, suka mesin. Bedanya, kita selama ini terbiasa mengistimewakan gumpal perasaan yang disebut cinta. Kita beri dia porsi lebih penting, kita bersarkan, terus menggumpal membesar. Coba saja kau cuekin, kau lupakan, maka gumpal cinta itu juga dengan cepat layu seperti kau bosan makan gulai kepala ikan."
Author: Tere Liye
44. "Wahai saudara yang budiman, raja (pemimpin) dalam alam ada tiga perkara, pangkat raja ada tiga macam. Yang memegang lahir dalam negeri lahir saja, yang perintah atas rakyat hukum adat kebiasaan dunia, itulah raja dalam alam yang memegang lahir saja. Wajib kita ikut seperti yang diperintahkannya, jika bersatu dengan agama. Perihal tidak bersatu dengan syara' (agama), janganlah kita turut seperti apa yang dikatakannya. Kedua, bagi raja yang memerintah hukum batin, yang memerintah jalan agama, itulah ahlus syari'ah, tempat yang memegang jalan agama. Wajib kita ikuti apa yang disuruhnya, siapa yang tidak patuh akan mendapat bala."(dikutip dari tulisan Teuku Ibrahim Alfian, dalam "Mengenal Masyarakat Aceh yang Sedang Membangun")"
Author: Teuku Kutakarang Syaikh

Author: Tony Benn
46. "Got that gun?'' Says Peter.''No,'' says Tobias '' I figured I would shoot the bullets out of my nostrils, so I left it upstairs."
Author: Veronica Roth
47. "So how can I hold Tobias's desperation against him, like I'm better than him, like I've never let my own brokenness blind me?"
Author: Veronica Roth
48. "Bagi yang sayang dan menyokong, sumbangan biasa dan sederhana tokoh tersebut akan ditiup ke langit; kelemahan sebesar gunung akan cuba ditutup walau dengan sehelai benang. Bagi yang benci dan menentang tokoh berkenaan pula, sumbangan sebesar gunung akan cuba ditutup, dan kekurangannya - sebagai manusia biasa - akan diperbesarkan; kedua-dua kejahatan ini biasanya dilaksanakan dengan meniup kepolan asap-asap fitnah tentang diri dan keluarga tokoh berkenaan, dan dengan memberikan tempat kepada suara-suara yang berlawanan dengan suara tokoh tersebut."
Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
49. "She began to take exercise far too late, embarking on tiny cycling tours to music festivals, or flower shows, or doing the rounds of churches – there were so many spires in her uninspiring adopted home. Three kids, one episiotomy, two continents, many phobias, lots of depressions. Old fat lady's underwear. It was all a curse upon cycling, which she'd taken up for what reason? Believe it or not, not even the bulbous seventies there were still bulbous, middle-aged women such as she, who thought that the principle of cycling meant something. They cycled and they ate in health-food restaurants like Cranks or Ceres, their cussedness aimed at appeasing the Earth Goddess herself. They almost fucking overdosed on grated carrot; while sipping fucking prune juice. They invented being environmentally-conscious, with their vegetable-buying co-operatives which gave them an excuse to put gumboots on in town."
Author: Will Self
50. "Their attitude toward another aspect of organization shows the same bias. What of the "group life", the loss of individualism? Once upon a time it was conventional for young men to view the group life of the big corporations as one of its principal disadvantages. Today, they see it as a positive boon. Working with others, they believe, will reduce the frustration of work, and they often endow the accompanying suppression of ego with strong spiritual overtones. They will concede that there is often a good bit of wasted time in the committee way of life and that the handling of human relations involves much suffering of fools gladly. But this sort of thing, they say, is the heart of the organization man's job, not merely the disadvantages of it. "Any man who feels frustrated by these things," one young trainee with face unlined said to me, "can never be an executive"."
Author: William H. Whyte
