3. "Je peux exécrer ce shah, mais ce n'est pas contre lui que je me bats. Triompher d'un despote ne peut être le but ultime, je me bats pour que les Persans aient conscience d'être des hommes libres, des fils d'Adam, comme nous disons ici, qu'ils aient foi en eux-mêmes, en leur force, qu'ils retrouvent une place dans le monde d'aujourd'hui. C'est ce que j'ai voulu réussir ici. Cette ville a rejeté la tutelle du monarque et des chefs religieux, elle a défié les Puissances, partout elle a suscité la solidarité et l'admiration des hommes de coeur. Les gens de Tabriz étaient sur le point de gagner, mais on ne veut pas les laisser gagner, on a trop peur de leur exemple, on veut les humilier, cette population fière devra se prosterner devant les soldats du tsar pour obtenir son pain. Toi qui es né libre dans un pays libre, tu devrais comprendre."

Author: Beth Fantaskey
7. "I was ten," I said. "Give me a little credit.""To a boy with aspirations like that, I would extend my respect—but not credit. Or life insurance." Abraham sounded amused. "You are an interesting man, David Charleston, but you sound like you were an even more interesting child."

Oh opinion uttered too quickly and thoughtlessly by the mouth of a woman! A woman who condemns a man of high understanding and dedicated study, a man who, by great labour and mature deliberation, has made the very noble book of the Rose, which surpasses all others that were ever written in French. When you have read this book a hundred times, provided you have understood the greater part of it, you will discover that you could never have put your time and intellect to better use!" My answer: Oh man deceived by willful opinion! I could assuredly answer but I prefer not to do it with insult, although, groundlessly, you yourself slander me with ugly accusations. Oh darkened understanding! Oh perverted knowledge ... A simple little housewife sustained by the doctrine of Holy Church could criticise your error!"
Author: Christine De Pizan

15. "Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love - that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."[Letter to Miss Eliot, Oct. 1, 1841]"
Author: George Eliot

Author: Gian Kumar
17. "Healing is a biological process, not an art. It is as much a function of the living organism as respiration, digestion, circulation, excretion, cell proliferation, or nerve activity. It is a ceaseless process, as constant as the turning of the earth on its axis. Man can neither duplicate nor imitate nor provide a substitute for the process. All schools of healing are frauds."
Author: Herbert M. Shelton

Author: Herbert Read
19. "Human knowledge has been changing from the word go and people in certain respects behave more rationally than they did when they didn't have it. They spend less time doing rain dances and more time seeding clouds."
Author: Herbert Simon
20. "S'ils participent tous deux des littératures de l'imaginaire, s'ils ont quelques points communs, comme par exemple leur localisation sur des planètes exotiques et la description de sociétés organisées selon des règles différentes des nôtres, la science-fiction et la fantasy n'en sont pas moins de nature très différente. L'une procède d'un retour à la pensée magique, elle est donc régressive, tandis que l'autre s'appuie sur les conquêtes de l'intelligence et du savoir. L'une flatte l'irrationnel, l'autre est un outil de questionnement du monde. La fantasy est une pure littérature d'évasion alors que la science-fiction est toujours en prise, même dans ses projections les plus lointaines, avec le réel."
Author: Jacques Baudou
21. "Inspiration is what keeps us well."
Author: James Redfield
22. "It is heroic to prepare for war with a tyrant power. Patriots will always win the admiration of mankind for daring to meet the bloodshed of battle for their country's liberty. But the patriot who is willing to go to that sacrifice will be the first to condemn the aimless and secret shedding of blood in time of peace."
Author: John Boyle O'Reilly
23. "There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation many never come again. But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texa...s? We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."
Author: John F. Kennedy
24. "Will someone please tell me why you all call me 'Sparky'?" she burst out in frustration. "And if I get stabbed one more time tonight I'm going to lose it!" she added, rounding on Jason, who was sneaking up behind her holding a stapler."

25. "Although one of the points of an Integral approach to any problem is to language that issue in a s large a number of levels as possible (Magic, Mythic, Rational, Pluralistic, Integral, and Super-Integral—and this includes the "conveyor belt" of spirituality), this doesn't mean to cavalierly overlook Integral itself. The Integral level is a prerequisite for "Integral We" practices (although anybody can be invited to those practices; but realize that an "Integral" depth of the "We" will not be achieved in any group the majority of whose individuals are not themselves at Integral)."
Author: Ken Wilber
26. "So, ignorant we are. But we're not stupid. Indeed...remaining ignorant about politics and our government is a perfectly rational response to the government we have. The question isn't what we know. The question is what we're capable of knowing, and doing, if we have the right incentives, and the right opportunity."
Author: Lawrence Lessig
27. "In the run-up to the election, Stephen Harper had rolled out the rhetoric on the need for clean and transparent government, expressing frustration with Paul Martin's Liberals over their alleged secrecy and obstructionism.

37. "I know your race and mine are never on the best of terms." There was a cold smile in his voice if not on his face. "But I do only what you force me to. You rationalize, Keeton. You defend. You reject unpalatable truths, and if you can't reject them outright you trivialize them. Incremental evidence is never enough for you. You hear rumors of Holocaust; you dismiss them. You see evidence of genocide; you insist it can't be so bad. Temperatures rise, glaciers melt—species die—and you blame sunspots and volcanoes. Everyone is like this, but you most of all. You and your Chinese Room. You turn incomprehension into mathematics, you reject the truth without even knowing what it is."
Author: Peter Watts

Author: Rebecca West
40. "His goal (Bezos's)was not just to make browsing for books easy, but an enjoyable experience. "People don't just buy books because they need books," he has said. "There are products like that. Pharmaceuticals are that way. Nobody enjoys browsing the Preparation H counter. But people will gladly spend hours in a bookstore, so you have to make the shopping experience fun and engaging."
Author: Richard L. Brandt
41. "A prudent silence will frequently be taken for wisdom and a sentence or two cautiously thrown in will sometimes gain the palm of knowledge, while a man well informed but indiscreet and unreserved will not uncommonly talk himself out of all consideration and weight. (Alexander Hamilton's 'thesis on discretion' written to his son James shortly before his fatal duel with Burr.)"
Author: Ron Chernow

C'est la première loi de la nature."
