"Unconsciously we all have a standard by which we measure other men, and if we examine closely we find that this standard is a very simple one, and is this: we admire them, we envy them, for great qualities we ourselves lack. Hero worship consists in just that. Our heroes are men who do things which we recognize, with regret, and sometimes with a secret shame, that we cannot do. We find not much in ourselves to admire, we are always privately wanting to be like somebody else. If everybody was satisfied with himself, there would be no heroes."

37. "It is sadly true that most institutions and nations admire and reward sins of the "spirit," and various forms of arrogance and greed often lead to promotions and praise. But pride, ambition, and vanity are still pride, ambition, and vanity; they do not stop being capital sins because someone is pope or president. "Greed is good" in America, extravagant bonuses are envied and imitated, and careerism is rampant among the clergy . . . Sins of the flesh, however, carry shame and guilt and can always be used to bring anybody down in church, culture, or the state."
Author: Richard Rohr
38. "Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist-a master-and that is what Auguste Rodin was-can look at an old woman, protray her exactly as she is...and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be...and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart...no matter what the merciless hours have done to her. Look at her, Ben. Growing old doesn't matter to you and me; we were never meant to be admired-but it does to them."
Author: Robert A. Heinlein

42. "I asked participants who claimed to be "strong followers of Jesus" whether Jesus spent time with the poor. Nearly 80 percent said yes. Later in the survey, I sneaked in another question, I asked this same group of strong followers whether they spent time wit the poor, and less than 2 percent said they did. I learned a powerful lesson: We can admire and worship Jesus without doing what he did. We can applaud what he preached and stood for without caring about the same things. We can adore his cross without taking up ours. I had come to see that the great tragedy of the church is not that rich Christians do not care about the poor but that rich Christians do not know the poor."
Author: Shane Claiborne

45. "I sada znam i da sam glupan, i da sam zato u lancima, i da sam zato u karanteni. Jer glupost nije defekt - ona je bolest. Bolest neizlježiva ako je urodena. Izlijeciti se može samo onaj tko se njome zarazio. Defekt nije zarazan, i on se ne lijeci, nego ispravlja. Zato glupost ne valja praštati, pa ni sebi. Ucili su nas da izujemo cipelu ako šetamo sa hromim. Hromost je defekt, pa ni pred njom pametni ne žmire, nego rade plastiku i proteze. A biti obazriv prema glupanu, gore je nego skidati cipelu. To je kao da se iz solidarnosti grlimo s gubavcem, i gore još, jer glupost je pogibeljnija od mnogih strašnih bolesti - opasna je i zdravima."
Author: Slobodan Novak

Author: Tim Powers
47. "These are dark radiances. They have no suspicion that they are to be pitied. Certainly they are so. He who does not weep does not see. They are to be admired and pitied, as one would both pity and admire a being at once night and day, without eyes beneath his lashes but with a star on his brow."
Author: Victor Hugo
48. "But beauty is not the only thing that makes a woman attractive; indeed, great beauty is often somewhat chilling: you admire, but are not moved."
Author: W. Somerset Maugham
49. "You differ from a great man in only one respect: the great man was once a very little man, but he developed one important quality: he recognized the smallness and narrowness of his thoughts and actions. Under the pressure of some task that meant a great deal to him, he learned to see how his smallness, his pettiness endangered his happiness. In other words, a great man knows when and in what way he is a little man. A little man does not know he is little and is afraid to know. He hides his pettiness and narrowness behind illusions of strength and greatness, someone else's strength and greatness. He's proud of his great generals but not of himself. He admires an idea he has not had, not one he has had. The less he understands something, the more firmly he believes in it. And the better he understands an idea, the less he believes in it."
Author: Wilhelm Reich
50. "Ölçüsüzlügün hüküm sürdügü bir yerde sayginin esamesi bile okunmaz. O zaman doga da sapar yolundan. Uysal sular taskinlara dönüsür bir anda, bir anda toprak batakliga dönüsür, haklilar degil güçlüler kazanir bütün davalari. Zalim evlat kiyar babasinin canina, hakkin hukukun yerine zorbalik adalet dagitmaya baslayinca da hakliyla haksizi ayirt etmenin imkani kalmaz. Adaletin de adi kalir, kendi yok olur gider. Güç, iradenin emrinden çikip ihtirasin emrine girer ve istahli bir kurt gibi önüne ne çikarsa saldirip kemire kemire yok eder. En sonunda da kendi basini yer..."
Author: William Shakespeare
