Garth Stein
“Such a simple concept, yet so true: that which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

Friedrich Nietzsche
“My conception of freedom. — The value of a thing sometimes does not lie in that which one attains by it, but in what one pays for it — what it costs us. Liberal institutions cease to be liberal as soon as they are attained: later on, there are no worse and no more thorough injurers of freedom than liberal institutions.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

“A piece of art comes to life, when we can feel, it is breathing, when it talks to us and starts raising questions. It may dispel biased perceptions; make us recognize ignored fragments and remember forsaken episodes of our life story. Art may sometimes even be nasty and disturbing, if we don’t want to consent to its philosophy or concept, but it might, in the end, perhaps reconcile us with ourselves. ("When is Art?")”
Erik Pevernagie

John Steinbeck
“The last clear definite function of man—muscles aching to work, minds aching to create beyond the single need—this is man....For man, unlike any other thing organic or inorganic in the universe, grows beyond his work, walks up the stairs of his concepts, emerges ahead of his accomplishments. This you may say of man—when theories change and crash, when schools, philosophies, when narrow dark alleys of thought, national, religious, economic, grow and disintegrate, man reaches, stumbles forward, painfully, mistakenly sometimes. Having stepped forward, he may slip back, but only half a step, never the full step back. This you may say and know it and know it. This you may know when the bombs plummet out of the black planes on the market place, when prisoners are stuck like pigs, when the crushed bodies drain filthily in the dust. You may know it in this way. If the step were not being taken, if the stumbling-forward ache were not alive, the bombs would not fall, the throats would not be cut. Fear the time when the bombs stop falling while the bombers live—for every bomb is proof that the spirit has not died. And fear the time when the strikes stop while the great owners live—for every little beaten strike is proof that the step is being taken. And this you can know—fear the time when Manself will not suffer and die for a concept, for this one quality is the foundation of Manself, and this one quality is man, distinctive in the universe.”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

Michael Bassey Johnson
“It doesn't really matter if you are left behind the back, but what matters is your capacity to pull and push everyone by your way to get to the front.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

“Eliminate the concept of division by class, skills, race, income, and nationality. We are all equals with a common pulse to survive. Every human requires food and water. Every human has a dream and desire to be happy. Every human responds to love, suffering and pain. Every human bleeds the same color and occupies the same world. Let us recognize that we are all part of each other. We are all human. We are all one.”
Suzy Kassem

Toba Beta
“If I could somehow know the future,
then now should not be like this time.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Ayn Rand
“Just as a concept becomes a unit when integrated with others into a wider concept, so a genus becomes a single unit, a species, when integrated with others into a wider genus. For instance, “table” is a species of the genus “furniture,” which is a species of the genus “household goods,” which is a species of the genus “man-made objects.” “Man” is a species of the genus “animal,” which is a species of the genus “organism,” which is a species of the genus “entity.”
Ayn Rand, The Ayn Rand Lexicon: Objectivism from A to Z

Toba Beta
“Forever means losing count of years.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Talismanist Giebra
“To have a story of a Talismanist is to have a story of living talismanic concepts.”
Talismanist Giebra, Talismanist: Fragments of the Ancient Fire. Philosophy of Fragmentism Series.

Álvaro de Campos
“His conception of the universe is, however, instinctive, not intellectual; it can't be criticized as a concept, because there’s none there, and it can't be criticized as temperament, because temperament can't be criticized.”
Álvaro de Campos

Deyth Banger
“I like the concept that people are alive.”
Deyth Banger, Dead Equation

Enock Maregesi
“Mfundishe mtoto wako maadili mema kwa miaka kumi na tatu, katika umri wa miaka kumi na tatu fikra za mtoto huanza kuwa na maono na utambuzi wa vitu mbalimbali na watoto katika umri huo wanao uwezo wa kuchambua dhana kadha wa kadha za kinadharia na hali kadhalika wanao uwezo wa kuchambua nadharia tata zisizokuwa na hakika na hata zile zenye hakika zisizokuwa tata, kabla hujamkabidhi kwa dunia. Ukimkabidhi mtoto wako kwa dunia kabla ya umri wa miaka kumi na tatu, kama vile kumpeleka katika shule ya bweni au kumpeleka akalelewe na watu wengine ambao si wazazi wake, yale ambayo hukumfundisha atafundishwa na ulimwengu. Mpeleke mtoto wako katika shule ya bweni au kuishi na watu wengine akiwa amefundishwa maadili mema. Kinyume cha hapo atafundishwa na shule au watu wengine kwa kudharauliwa, kuchukiwa na kuadabishwa.”
Enock Maregesi

Gwenda Bond
“I didn't mind walking into danger on my own. Not the concept of it, anyway.”
Gwenda Bond, Triple Threat

“As the soul does not have a brain, it cannot work according to its own wish. Obviously, it will not be proper to say that the soul will enter another body after the death of a person. Hence, the concept of ‘rebirth’ or ‘reincarnation’ seems doubtful!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

Manoj Arora
“Money Compounding is one concept that does not hit you unless your stars are aligned”
Manoj Arora, From the Rat Race to Financial Freedom

“The word hygge has been sifted to the surface in recent years but the concept is not new.
It is a practice as old as sitting around a fire or sharing food with a friend.
Words emerge from culture, history, topography and place.
They're formed by time and habit and are passed from one generation to the next through stories, rituals and values.”
Louisa Thomsen Brits, The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Living Well

Deyth Banger
“10 Minutes - Staying is a concept of a lie.”
Deyth Banger

“There are three salient themes that run through any experience of hygge - interiority, contrast and atmosphere. They support and extend each other and shape our understanding of the concept.”
Louisa Thomsen Brits, The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Living Well

Stephen Toulmin
“There is no way of cutting ourselves free of our conceptual inheritance: all we are required to do is use our experience critically and discriminatingly, refining and improving our inherited ideas, and determining more exactly the limits to their scope.”
Stephen Toulmin, Cosmopolis: The Hidden Agenda of Modernity

Talismanist Giebra
“To have a story of a spiritual trailblazer is to have a story of discovering new spiritual concepts.”
Talismanist Giebra, Talismanist: Fragments of the Ancient Fire. Philosophy of Fragmentism Series.

Talismanist Giebra
“Freedom is a living concept, free in itself…”
Talismanist Giebra, Talismanist: Fragments of the Ancient Fire. Philosophy of Fragmentism Series.

“It is a very hard to stay broad-minded keeping your culture, religion and moral values: it doesn't mean you expect others, but you don't act yourself on this concept.”
Ehsan Sehgal

“Each civilization speaks in its language, using specific content of the concepts. And this specificity in itself makes it difficult to transmit the information from one civilization to another. While translating a language from one civilization, some part of the information is going to be lost, some part to be mystified, some part to be associated with a completely different content taken from remote resources for this civilization. As a result, what one civilization comprehends turns out to be entirely, or partially different from what is supposed to be transmitted by another civilization, which in turn leads to the fact that the average mind in this civilization becomes more erroneous and confused.”
Elmar Hussein

Deyth Banger
“Life is repudiation, friendship is a lieable concept.”
Deyth Banger, Brain on Porn

Simone Weil
“Both the destruction and the preservation of capitalism are meaningless slogans, but these slogans are supported by real organizations. Corresponding to each empty abstraction there is an actual human group, and any abstraction of which this is not true remains harmless.”
Simone Weil, An Anthology

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“If the dream is not bigger than me, I have mistaken an idea for a dream.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Everybody is selfish…
that's life!”
