(W. Somerset Maugham) The advantage of living abroad is that, coming in contact with the manners and customs of the people among whom you live, you observe them from the outside and see that they have not the necessity which those who practice them believe. You cannot fail to discover that the beliefs which to you are self-evident to the foreigner are absurd. - Of Human Bondage
(Dante) There is no place for pity here. Who is more arrogant within his soul, who is more impious than one who dares to sorrow at Godís judgment? - Inferno XX 27
(Fyodor Dostoevsky) If the people will not listen to you, then fall down before them and beg their forgiveness, for in truth you are to blame.
(Upanishads) You are what your deep driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny. - Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
(Doris Lessing) There are people in the world all the time who know. ... But they keep quiet. They just move about quietly, saving the people who know they are in the trap. Try not to forget ... try not to forget who you really are and what your purpose is.

(Tao Te Ching) Weapons are tools of bad omen, by gentlemen not to be used; but when it cannot be avoided, they use them with calm and restraint. Even in victory's hour these tools are unlovely to see; for those who admire them truly are men who in murder delight.
(Bhagavad-Gita) Men whose discrimination has been blunted by worldy desires, establish this or that ritual or cult and resort to various deities, according to the impulse of their inborn natures. But it does not matter what deity a devotee choses to worship. If he has faith, I make his faith unwavering.
(Kahlil Gibran) If it is an unjust law you would abolish, that law was written with your own hand upon your own forehead. You cannot erase it by burning your law books or by washing the foreheads of your judges, though you pour the sea upon them. And if it is the despot you would dethrone, see first that his throne erected within you is destroyed. For how can a tyrant rule the free and the proud, but for a tyranny in their own freedom and a shame in their own pride?
(Jeremiah 25:32) Behold, evil is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest is stirring from the farthest parts of the earth! And those slain by the Lord shall extend from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.
(Isaiah 49:13) Shout for joy, O heavens! And rejoice, O earth! Break forth into joyful shouting, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have compassion on His afflicted.
