    I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.

    "A human being is part of a whole, called by us the "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

    In heaven all the interesting people are missing.
    The thousand mysteries around us would not trouble but interest us, if only we had cheerful, healthy hearts.

    There are no facts, only interpretations.

    Talking much about oneself can also be a means to conceal oneself.

  18. "Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor.
    It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed,
    the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded with patriotism, will offer up all of their rights
    unto the leader, and gladly so."
    - Julius Caesar -

    The pioneers of a warless world are the youth that refuse military service.

    "On a personal level, Freaking Out is a process whereby an individual casts off outmoded and restricting standards of thinking, dress, and social etiquette in order to express CREATIVELY his relationship to his immediate environment and the social structure as a whole."
