Augustus Cileone Quotes

"Man, do you ever feel its just the hope of things we live for? I asked. I mean, its like the things themselves are just a big disappointment, you know? We like the searching, the dreaming.

Aliaa El Nashar Quotes

"Im reading a book that actually scares me. It is not a form of fear that is embodied in some irrational phobia of a specific object, living being, or an event, but a fear of words, of actions of beings towards one another, how one word or command wrongly distributed can destroy someone or many people. How following blindly into the paths of something you truly believe is right without any rationale to back it up or the thought of the consequences it can cause may blindly lead others to their death. How in that moment, thinking youre doing it for the right reasons, you ignore all the laws of nature that tell you that human life is sacred and that no one mans ideals can ever compensate for its loss. To have the power to destroy and cause suffering without much care. This is a fear of what humanity is turning into, and such a future truly scares me."

Quotes About The Body Systems

"Present global culture is a kind of arrogant newcomer. It arrives on the planetary stage following four and a half billion years of other acts, and after looking about for a few thousand years declares itself in possession of eternal truths. But in a world that is changing as fast as ours, this is a prescription for disaster. No nation, no religion, no economic system, no body of knowledge, is likely to have all the answers for our survival. There must be many social systems that would work far better than any now in existence. In the scientific tradition, our task is to find them." - Author: Carl Sagan
