Dorothy L. Sayers

Noam Chomsky
“...the qualifications that I have to speak on world affairs are exactly the same ones Henry Kissinger has, and Walt Rostow has, or anybody in the Political Science Department, professional historians—none, none that you don't have. The only difference is, I don't pretend to have qualifications, nor do I pretend that qualifications are needed. I mean, if somebody were to ask me to give a talk on quantum physics, I'd refuse—because I don't understand enough. But world affairs are trivial: there's nothing in the social sciences or history or whatever that is beyond the intellectual capacities of an ordinary fifteen-year-old. You have to do a little work, you have to do some reading, you have to be able to think but there's nothing deep—if there are any theories around that require some special kind of training to understand, then they've been kept a carefully guarded secret.”
Noam Chomsky, Understanding Power: The Indispensable Chomsky

Dalai Lama XIV
“To practice tantra requires even greater compassion and greater intelligence than are required on the sutra path; thus, though many persons in the degenerate era are interested in tantra, tantra is not for degenerate persons. Tantra is limited to persons whose compassion is so great that they cannot bear to spend unnecessary time in attaining Buddhahood, as they want to be a supreme source of help and happiness for others quickly.”
Dalai Lama XIV, Meditation on Emptiness

E.A. Bucchianeri
“...Come on let’s see the degree.”

Katherine unrolled her scroll displaying a long declaration in Latin affixed with a red seal proclaiming her a Master of Art.

“Imagine working for years to obtain a piece of paper we can hardly read ” Katherine joked.

“And to officially declare you have talent ” Suzy returned.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

“Personal qualities are much more important than qualifications.”
P.K. Shaw

Debasish Mridha
“Qualifications do not always define a true education. Qualifications are like obtaining a valuable candle while a true education is the essence of light that the candle will reflect. The ultimate purpose of qualifications is to find a great job, and the ultimate purpose of education is to create a great life.”
Debasish Mridha
