Elie Wiesel
“No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them”
Elie Wiesel

Mary Shelley
“It may...be judged indecent in me to come forward on this occasion; but when I see a fellow-creature about to perish through the cowardice of her pretended friends, I wish to be allowed to speak, that I may say what I know of her character.”
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Dan Pearce
“My request today is simple. Today. Tomorrow. Next week. Find somebody, anybody, that’s different than you. Somebody that has made you feel ill-will or even hateful. Somebody whose life decisions have made you uncomfortable. Somebody who practices a different religion than you do. Somebody who has been lost to addiction. Somebody with a criminal past. Somebody who dresses “below” you. Somebody with disabilities. Somebody who lives an alternative lifestyle. Somebody without a home.

Somebody that you, until now, would always avoid, always look down on, and always be disgusted by.

Reach your arm out and put it around them.

And then, tell them they’re all right. Tell them they have a friend. Tell them you love them.

If you or I wanna make a change in this world, that’s where we’re gonna be able to do it. That’s where we’ll start.

Every. Single. Time.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

“People who love themselves, don’t hurt other people. People who love themselves have no reason to ever judge another person on looks. There is simply no need. People who love themselves no longer look at beauty on a sliding scale or as a competition. There is nobody more beautiful or less beautiful than anyone else, including themselves. People who love themselves no longer see fat or skinny, tall or short, fair or dark skin, gay or straight, strong or weak. They only see people. Beautiful, beautiful people.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

“It's time to give the gavel back to God, we were never meant to be judges.”
Evinda Lepins

Amy Tan
“Whenever I'm with my mother, I feel as though I have to spend the whole time avoiding land mines.”
Amy Tan, The Hundred Secret Senses

Carlos Fuentes
“No, it's not that they're bad. It's that they're obliged to pretend they're good. They've been brought up to deceive and be cunning, to protect themselves from our society. I don't want to be like that.”
Carlos Fuentes, Todas Las Familias Felices

Dan Pearce
“Don’t we get it? To put our arm around someone who is gay, someone who has an addiction, somebody who lives a different lifestyle, someone who is not what we think they should be… doing that has nothing to do with enabling them or accepting what they do as okay by us. It has nothing to do with encouraging them in their practice of what you or I might feel or believe is wrong vs right.

It has everything to do with being a good human being. A good person. A good friend.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

“Explain to me how you having a problem with me is my problem...”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

“ہم سب ایک rotten system کی پیداوار ہیں اور اسی میں ‏رہ رہے ہیں. دوسروں پر انگلی اٹھانے سے پہلے اپنا ‏گریبان اور دامن دیکھنا بہت ‏ضروری ہے. اپنے کپڑوں پر دھبے لے کر دوسروں کے داغ دکھانا حماقت کے علاوہ اور کچھ نہیں ہے. اور تم یہی کرنے کی کوشیش کن رہی ہو." علیزہ خاموش ہو گئ.”
Umera Ahmed, Amar Bail

Dan Pearce
“Do you love yourself? The test is simple. Do you look at others and see anything besides another beautiful human being? Do you see somebody who is more beautiful or less beautiful than you? If so, look down a little deeper and ask yourself why. It may be painful. The whys usually are. Do it anyway.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

C. JoyBell C.
“Open your mind to the world and the many different ways that can be found in it, before making hasty judgments of others. After all, the very same thing that you judge from where you are— may very well be something totally different in meaning on the other side of the world. The problem with making hasty judgments is that it will emphasize your ignorance at the end of the day.”
C. JoyBell C.

Dan Pearce
“I think it doesn’t matter if you or I or anybody else thinks homosexuality is a sin. It doesn’t matter if you or I think anything is a sin. It doesn’t matter if homosexuality is a sin or not. In fact, it doesn’t matter if anything anybody else does is a sin or not.

Because sin is a very personal thing! It always has been and it always will be!

And it has nothing to do with love.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Pittacus Lore
“Show me a man without vice and I'll show you one without virtue!”
Pittacus Lore, The Power of Six

“The price of success is to bear the criticism of envy.”
Denis Waitley

Dan Pearce
“The more you put your arm around those that you might naturally look down on, the more you will love yourself. And the more you love yourself, the less need you’ll ever have to find fault or be better than others. And the less we all find fault or have a need to be better than others, the quicker this world becomes a far better place to live.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

“Don’t be offended when people tell you you’re crazy. Use it as an excuse to do whatever you want!”

Jessica Verdi
“Listen, I wanted to say, I don't need your judgment, okay? I have enough to deal with without you contributing, so can we just get on with this so I can get out of here?

But I couldn't form the words. Dr. Johnson viewed me as a child, and somehow, under his contemptuous gaze, I had regressed to one. I was frightened and shy, and it was all I could do to answer his questions and count the seconds until the end of the visit.”
Jessica Verdi, My Life After Now

“The thoughts that creep into our brain about other people tell us less about those people than they do about ourself...Understand that most judgments of others are an attempt to empower ourselves and give a sense of being better than the person we judge...Our primitive nature (automatic brain) helps us believe that this is necessary for protection. Following this natural tendency puts up further obstructions to the law of attraction.”
Charles F. Glassman, Brain Drain The Breakthrough That Will Change Your Life

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: NIV - Student Bible

Dan Pearce
“When someone points out your past mistakes, look at them dead in the eyes and follow with, 'and I’d do it all again to have the life I have now.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

“People love to say, 'I love that person even though…' But let’s be honest. Genuine love is never followed with the words 'even though.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

David Levithan
“Because of the size of this body, I must concentrate much harder than I usually do. Even the small things -- my foot on the gas pedal, the amount of space I have to leave around me in the halls -- require major adjustment.

And there are the looks I get -- such undisguised disgust. Not just from other students. From teachers. From strangers. The judgment flows freely. It's possible that they're reacting to the thing that Finn has allowed himself to become. But there's also something more primal, something more defensive in their disgust. I am what they fear becoming.

I've worn black today, because I've heard so often that it's supposed to be slimming. But instead I am this sphere of darkness submarining through the halls.”
David Levithan, Every Day

Dan Pearce
“I have known a lot of people in my life, and I can tell you this… Some of the ones who understood love better than anyone else were those who the rest of the world had long before measured as lost or gone. Some of the people who were able to look at the dirtiest, the poorest, the gays, the straights, the drug users, those in recovery, the basest of sinners, and those who were just… plain… different.

They were able to look at them all and only see strength. Beauty. Potential. Hope.

And if we boil it down, isn’t that what love actually is?”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

John Raptor
“God, I hate judgmental people. They're so mean...and fat.”
John Raptor

“One must stand apart in order to truly know another.”
Regina O'Melveny, The Book of Madness and Cures

“the stigma of severe mental illness leads to prejudice and discrimination. Stigmas are negative and erroneous attitudes about these persons. Unfortunately, stigma's impact on a person's life may be as harmful as the direct effects of the disease.
Corrigan, P. W., & Penn, D. L. (1999). Lessons from social psychology on discrediting psychiatric stigma. American Psychologist, 54(9), 765–776.”
Patrick W. Corrigan

Michael Lewis
“Stigmas speak to the idea of difference and how difference shames us and those we know.”
Michael Lewis
