Criss Jami
“Senses of humor define people, as factions, deeper rooted than religious or political opinions. When carrying out everyday tasks, opinions are rather easy to set aside, but those whom a person shares a sense of humor with are his closest friends. They are always there to make the biggest influence.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“What surrounds us is what is within us.”

“You are the salt of the earth. But remember that salt is useful when in association, but useless in isolation.”

John F. Kennedy
“From time to time our national history has been marred by forgetfulness of the Jeffersonian principle that restraint is at the heart of liberty. In 1789 the Federalists adopted Alien and Sedition Acts in a shabby political effort to isolate the Republic from the world and to punish political criticism as seditious libel. In 1865 the Radical Republicans sought to snare private conscience in a web of oaths and affirmations of loyalty. Spokesmen for the South did service for the Nation in resisting the petty tyranny of distrustful vengeance. In the 1920's the Attorney General of the United States degraded his office by hunting political radicals as if they were Salem witches. The Nation's only gain from his efforts were the classic dissents of Holmes and Brandeis.

In our own times, the old blunt instruments have again been put to work. The States have followed in the footsteps of the Federalists and have put Alien and Sedition Acts upon their statute books. An epidemic of loyalty oaths has spread across the Nation until no town or village seems to feel secure until its servants have purged themselves of all suspicion of non-conformity by swearing to their political cleanliness.

Those who love the twilight speak as if public education must be training in conformity, and government support of science be public aid of caution.

We have also seen a sharpening and refinement of abusive power. The legislative investigation, designed and often exercised for the achievement of high ends, has too frequently been used by the Nation and the States as a means for effecting the disgrace and degradation of private persons. Unscrupulous demagogues have used the power to investigate as tyrants of an earlier day used the bill of attainder.

The architects of fear have converted a wholesome law against conspiracy into an instrument for making association a crime. Pretending to fear government they have asked government to outlaw private protest. They glorify "togetherness" when it is theirs, and call it conspiracy when it is that of others.

In listing these abuses I do not mean to condemn our central effort to protect the Nation's security. The dangers that surround us have been very great, and many of our measures of vigilance have ample justification. Yet there are few among us who do not share a portion of the blame for not recognizing soon enough the dark tendency towards excess of caution.”
John F. Kennedy

“Winners have no interest or association in the opinions, actions or affairs of losers.”

Michael Bassey Johnson
“You do not attain success when you associate with those in high positions, It comes when you accept yourself and realize that only you can take yourself to where your heart truly lies.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Jeff Lindsay
“Sooner or later, having two separate agendas is going to cause trouble.”
Jeff Lindsay, Dexter Is Dead

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Association with other people corrupts our character; especially when we have none.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Jeffrey Tucker
“The overwhelming tendency of markets is to bring people together, break down prejudices, persuade people of the need to cooperate regardless of class, race, religion, sex/gender, and physical ability. The same is obviously and especially true of sexual orientation. It is the market that rewards people who put aside their biases and seek gains through trade. This is why states devoted to racialist and hateful policies always resort to violence in control of the marketplace.”
Jeffrey Tucker

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't drive a car in the dream, else you won't drive it on earth. Don't wish to become, else you won't become. Don't associate with fools, else your ancestors will be insulted. Don't be addicted to wine, else your pocket will be empty. Don't be drunk, else you'll be attacked.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Murray N. Rothbard
“There are two and only two ways that any economy can be organized. One is by freedom and voluntary choice—the way of the market. The other is by force and dictation—the way of the State.”
Murray N. Rothbard

Asa Don Brown
“I have frequently thought to myself, 'If I can teach my daughter one thing, it will be the love of self unconditionally.' Unconditional love and peace are obtainable, but they are only obtainable if I can learn to move beyond the conditions that I placed on my life. When conditions are placed on my life and on the lives of others, they ensure that I will never experience the depths of love and happiness.”
Asa Don Brown

Steven Magee
“In the future, it may turn out that fossil fuels are the blood of the Earth and by extracting them may lead to serious consequences to the Earth's survival, and by association, that of the humans.”

Hans-Hermann Hoppe
“La plus importante réforme monétaire que l’on puisse espérer serait l’abolition de toutes les banques centrales et un retour à une situation qu’ont vécu les humains de tous temps où l’argent est une commodité d’échange qui ne peut être produite qu’à un coût élevé, tel qu’en or ou en argent, par le marché. À nouveau, pas de monopole dans la production monétaire mais bien une compétition de cette production monétaire afin de ne pas pouvoir la créer à partir de rien.”
Hans-Hermann Hoppe

“Feeling that one has some leverage upon something, even by proxy or association, makes one a great deal more interested in it.”

Israelmore Ayivor
“Better associations

If you associate yourself with a change maker,
Your life will by all means become better.
You will wink at challenges and begin to think.
In times of frustrations, you will not sink.

If you miss the way to a great destination,
Just look for those going to that direction.
Mount the shoulders of a giant believer
And you will become a great achiever.

People around you determine your speed.
They will influence the growth of your seed.
People you are around will decide your strength
And also the figure of your success’ length
I trust you want to become a better you.

It matters, what your associates plan to do.
It depends, where your companions want to go.
It relies on what your friends believe and know.
Quit friendships that build you nothing

Choose friends who bring out of you something
One iron sharpens another iron
Go along with great people and ride on.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Become a Better You

Dada Bhagwan
“Discharge [disposal of karma] is in nature’s hands. That’s why there is restlessness. That is why these are the pains of dependency [association]. There are such times man has to face that it becomes difficult for him to pass even one hour.”
Dada Bhagwan

Christina Engela
“As a panting Tracy Ferris scrambled into the life-pod, this thought was precisely what was running through her already agitated mind. From the very beginning of their association, she’d had a bad feeling about Brandon Carver. Something about that guy just never seemed to fit. Sure, he was good looking – but so were many of the other out of work space bums hitch-hiking from place to place she’d also had the misfortune to meet.”
Christina Engela, Prodigal Sun

Anuradha Bhattacharyya
“In all my paintings, the animal is at the centre. Surrounding it are the things that define the animal. This is how beauty is characterized. You need to characterize beauty by association.
I have learned to worship beauty. Not ordinary beauty but that in its stormiest nature.”
Anuradha Bhattacharyya, One Word

“A tiny bit of brilliance rubs off on you every time you interact with someone brilliant.”
Hrishikesh Agnihotri

Ana Claudia Antunes
“What's the difference between rain and grain? Only a g, though they both grow in the land, and they don't land but fall. What a difference a g makes!”
Ana Claudia Antunes

Teresa of Ávila
“Much harm may result from bad company and we are inclined by nature to follow what is worse rather than what is better.”
