"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

If there are Gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no Gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

"When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick. Every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once."

"True awareness is when your fears are traded for love. This inner peace provides the calmness and strength to overcome your obstacles. This love is the tiny light that burns inside you and presses you forward when you think you have nothing left. Filled with jealousy, some will wonder what your secret is and they will hate you for it. They will attempt to suppress your spirit but they will not break your gleaming love. Like only a diamond cuts a diamond, only love permeates love. When you have this love inside yourself, you have nothing to be afraid of anymore, because nothing can defeat love."

"It's a troublesome world,
all the people who are in it,
are troubled with troubles,
almost every single minute,
You ought to be thankful,
a whole heaping lot,
for all of the places,
and people you're not."

"Remember YOU are here to CREATE the person you want to be for life. Follow what drives YOU, popularity is nothing. Be the person YOU want to be now because now is as close to the future as YOU will ever get. Find someone that compliments YOU and learn everything there is about them. Body language, speech, and kindness will go far to connect with any person but always be conscience. Never just waste time, fill it with that which will aid YOU to HAPPINESS and in turn success. Take no moment for granted. LIVE. Always choose the rarer of the two opportunities. The one that appears frequently will return frequently."

"Speech is of three kinds: the first comes from the desire of the self, the second from reason, and the third from love. Speech which arises from desire is troubling and insipid, giving neither pleasure to those who speak nor profit to those who listen. That which arises from reason is accepted by the wise and gives pleasure to the listener and the speaker, and speech that arises from love renders enraptured those who listen and those who speak."
