12. "No veo obstáculos a que goce de una suerte feliz, sino en ese entrecejo, un entrecejo orgullosos, que parece querer decir: "yo puedo vivir sola, si el respeto de mi misma y las circunstancias me obligaran a ello. No necesito vender mi alma a un comprador de felicidad. Poseo un escondido e innato tesoro que me bastará para vivir si he de prescindir de todo placer ajeno a mí misma, en el caso de que hubiese de pagar por la dicha un precio demasiado caro". En la frente se lee: "mi razón es sólida y no permitirá a los sentimientos entregarse a sus desordenadas pasiones. Podrán las pasiones bramar y los deseos imaginar toda clase de cosas vanas; pero la sensatez será siempre la última palabra sobre el asunto y emitirá el voto decisivo en todas las terminaciones. Podrán producirse violentos huracanes, impetuosos temblores de tierra, ardorosas llamas, pero yo seguiré siempre los dictados de esa voz interior que interpreta los dictados de la conciencia"."
Author: Charlotte Brontë

14. "Like the Nazis, the cadres of jihad have a death wish that sets the seal on their nihilism. The goal of a world run by an oligarchy in possession of Teutonic genes, who may kill or enslave other 'races' according to need, is not more unrealizable than the idea that a single state, let alone the globe itself, could be governed according to the dictates of an allegedly holy book. This mad scheme begins by denying itself the talents (and the rights) of half the population, views with superstitious horror the charging of interest, and invokes the right of Muslims to subject nonbelievers to special taxes and confiscations. Not even Afghanistan or Somalia, scenes of the furthest advances yet made by pro-caliphate forces, could be governed for long in this way without setting new standards for beggary and decline."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
15. "Making all effort resist absorption into American cult of the individual, traditional method entrenched oligarchy so maintain own power: Fracture citizen isolated into different religion, different race, different family.

Author: Cornel West
18. "Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class -- whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy."
Author: Frank Herbert
19. "More striking still, it appeared that, if the process of concentration goes on at the same rate, at the end of another century we shall have all American industry controlled by a dozen corporations and run by perhaps a hundred men. Put plainly, we are steering a steady course toward economic oligarchy, if we are not there already."
Author: Franklin D. Roosevelt

22. "Sambit Bal may be right that this is a scandal the IPL needed. It certainly brings fans face-to-face with the tangled reality of their amusement, based as it is on a self-seeking, self-perpetuating commercial oligarchy issued licenses to exploit cricket as they please. Whether the fans care is another matter: one of the reasons Indians have embraced economic liberalisation so fervently is a shoulder-shrugging resignation about the efficiency and integrity of their institutions. Given the choice between Lalit Modi, with his snappy suits and his soi-disant 'Indian People's League', and the BCCI, stuffed with grandstanding politicians and crony capitalists, where would your loyalties lie?"
Author: Gideon Haigh
23. "These definitions coincide with the terms which, since Greek antiquity, have been used to define the forms of government as the rule of man over man—of one or the few in monarchy and oligarchy, of the best or the many in aristocracy and democracy, to which today we ought to add the latest and perhaps most formidable form of such dominion, bureaucracy, or the rule by an intricate system of bureaux in which no men, neither one nor the best, neither the few nor the many, can be held responsible, and which could be properly called the rule by Nobody. Indeed, if we identify tyranny as the government that is not held to give account of itself, rule by Nobody is clearly the most tyrannical of all, since there is no one left who could even be asked to answer for what is being done. It is this state of affairs which is among the most potent causes for the current world-wide rebellious unrest."
Author: Hannah Arendt
24. "Dark influences from the American past congregate among us still. If we are a democracy, what are we to make of the palpable elements of plutocracy, oligarchy, and mounting theocracy that rule our state? How do we address the self-inflicted catastrophes that devastated our natural environment? So large is our malaise that no single writer can encompass it. We have no Emerson or Whitman among us. An institutionalized counterculture condemns individuality as archaic and depreciates intellectual values, even in the universities. (The Anatomy of Influence)"
Author: Harold Bloom
25. "We must not tolerate oppressive government or industrial oligarchy in the form of monopolies and cartels."
Author: Henry A. Wallace

28. "En el mundo moderno nos encontramos con una situación paradójica: aunque en teoría el hombre sabe que puede extender su atención hacia algo y luego desligarla, no suele hacerlo. En muchas áreas de su actividad no es capaz de observar algo, luego desligarse de ello y observar otra cosa.Una vez que ha encontrado algo que le interesa, no puede desidentificarse de modo eficiente y, por lo tanto, no puede ser objetivo. Observa que en la mayoría de los lenguajes – por no decir todos – tenemos palabras como "objetividad", lo cual conduce a las personas a imaginar que poseen esa característica, o que pueden usarla con facilidad. Esto equivale a decir: "Conozco la palabra oro, de manera que soy rico"
Author: Idries Shah
29. "Ser un Sufi es desligarse de ideas fijas y preconcebidas, y no intentar eludir el propio destino. Abu-Said, hijo de Abi-Khair"
Author: Idries Shah
30. "On the American Oligarchy"How about the United States?" a man yelled from the audience."And what about it?" Martin retorted. "The thirteen colonies threw off their rulers and formed the Republic so-called. The slaves were their own masters. There were no more masters of the sword. But you couldn't get along without masters of some sort, and there arose a new set of masters–not the great, virile noble men, but the shrewd and spidery traders and money-lenders. And they enslaved you all over again–but not frankly, as the true, noble men would do with weight of their own right arms, but secretly, by spidery machinations and by wheedling and cajoling and lies. They have purchased your slave judges, they have debauched your slave legislatures, and they have forced to worse horrors than chattel slavery your slave boys and girls. Two million of your children are toiling today in this trade-oligarchy of the United States. Ten millions of your slaves are not properly sheltered nor properly fed."
Author: Jack London
31. "The surpluses will have to be expended somehow, and trust the oligarchs to find a way. Magnificent roads will be built. There will be great achievements in science, and especially in art. When the oligarchs have completely mastered the people, they will have time to spare for other things. They will become worshippers of beauty. They will become art-lovers. And under their direction and generously rewarded, will toil the artists. The result will be great art; for no longer, as up to yesterday, will the artists pander to the bourgeois taste of the middle class. It will be great art, I tell you, and wonder cities will arise that will make tawdry and cheap the cities of old time. And in these cities will the oligarchs dwell and worship beauty"
Author: Jack London
32. "As an American citizen, one has to vote. If we don't vote, we're not doing our part. We'll become some sort of oligarchy."
Author: Jason Mraz
33. "A maioria das vezes, por não se ligarem a palavras, meus pensamentos permanecem nebulosos. Desenham formas vagas e agradáveis, submergem: esqueço-os imediatamente."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
34. "No longer enslaved or made dependent by force of law, the great majority are so by force of poverty; they are still chained to a place, to an occupation, and to conformity with the will of an employer, and debarred, by the accident of birth both from the enjoyments, and from the mental and moral advantages, which others inherit without exertion and independently of desert. That this is an evil equal to almost any of those against which mankind have hitherto struggled, the poor are not wrong in believing. Is it a necessary evil? They are told so by, those who do not feel it---by those who have gained the prizes in the lottery of life. But it was also said that slavery, that despotism, that all the privileges of oligarchy, were necessary."
Author: John Stuart Mill
35. "El verbo leer, como el verbo amar y el verbo soñar, no soporta ‘el modo imperativo'. Yo siempre les aconsejé a mis estudiantes que si un libro los aburre lo dejen; que no lo lean porque es famoso, que no lean un libro porque es moderno, que no lean un libro porque es antiguo. La lectura debe ser una de las formas de la felicidad y no se puede obligar a nadie a ser feliz.The verb reading, like the verb to love and the verb dreaming, doesn't bear the imperative mode. I always advised to my students that if a book bores them leave it; That they don't read it because it's famous, that they don't read a book because it's modern, that they don't read a book because it's antique. The reading should be one of the ways of happiness and nobody can be obliged to be happy."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
36. "Es una impresión espantosa. Te sientes caer, como en un pozo sin fondo, y buscas desesperadamente algo a lo que agarrarte antes de sumirte en la oscuridad. Es verdaderamente aterrador. Es… como si te obligaran a dormir sin saber si vas a despertar. Es como si mi mente muriese cada vez, para resucitar al día siguiente."
Author: Laura Gallego García
37. "A slave government is an oligarchy; and one, too, of the most arbitrary and criminal character."
Author: Lysander Spooner
38.

Author: Matt Taibbi

Author: Pat Robertson
40. "But if there's an erosion at home, you know, Thomas Jefferson warned about a tyranny of an oligarchy and if we surrender our democracy to the tyranny of an oligarchy, we've made a terrible mistake."
Author: Pat Robertson
41. "La democracia, como yo la veo, es una forma de oligarquía en la que el pueblo, ignorante, cree participar, pero en realidad las elecciones no son más que una coartada para que, aunque rotando, manden siempre los mismos. El secreto de la democracia reside en hacer creer al pueblo que piensa y decide, no en hacerles pensar y decidir realmente."
Author: Pedro Santamaría
42. "All systems are oligarchy. There is no other."
Author: Tom Metzger
43. "Allting blir svårt när man vill äga saker, bära dem med sig och ha dem. Jag bara tittar på dem och när jag går min väg har jag dem inne i huvudet och kan ha roligare saker för mig än att bära kappsäckar."
Author: Tove Jansson

Author: V.C. Andrews
45. "Creemos enla valentía. Creemos en tomar acciones. Creemos en la liberarnos del miedo y en la adquisición de habilidades necesarias para obligar a que lo malos salga de nuestro mundo para que el bien pueda prosperar y florecer"
Author: Veronica Roth

Author: Yulia Tymoshenko

Today's Quote

Religion should unite all hearts and cause wars and disputes to vanish from the face of the earth; it should give birth to spirituality, and bring light and life to every soul. If religion becomes a cause of dislike, hatred and division, it would be better to be without it... Any religion which is not a cause of love and unity is no religion."
