Ralph Waldo Emerson

Criss Jami
“It is the philosophers, theologians, and evangelists who are said to be filled with pride and bigotry due to the strong convictions that they represent. On the contrary, teachings can be either taken or dismissed; whereas voting is the only thing the average person can do to force everyone to live how they would prefer. A simple vote is among the largest yet most acceptable forms of bigotry, and that is because people play the card only when they feel that in doing so it conveniences themselves.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Kage Baker
“A lengthy and painful discussion followed. It lasted through tea and dinner. It was revealed to Lady Beatrice that, though she had been sincerely mourned when Mamma had been under the impression she was dead, her unexpected return to life was something more than inconvenient. Had she never considered the disgrace she would inflict upon her family by returning, after all that had happened to her? What were all Aunt Harriet's neighbors to think?”
Kage Baker, The Women of Nell Gwynne's

Howard Tayler
“So you're a fellow mercenary, then."

"Does this mean you'll afford me some professional courtesy?"

"Don't ask for that. All it means is that you might get to face the person who kills you. . . But only if it's convenient.”
Howard Tayler, Emperor Pius Dei

C.E.M. Joad
“That some contrivance has been devised or some increment of power obtained which will enabled human beings to move faster … or later more rapidly the position of matter in space than before is in the contemporary world regarded as a sufficient reason for making use of it. Nobody ever asks whether the use of the contrivance, the employment of the power, will make us happier, wiser, or better.”
C.E.M. Joad

“In ancient times, people who didn’t cross the line were called good. The tragedy of our times is that there are too many good people: they conveniently shift the line so there is no need to cross it.”

Sarah K.L. Wilson
“Imagine being part of a people who thought life was worth less than the convenience of a moment.”
Sarah K.L. Wilson, Initiate

Ramani Durvasula
“In a healthy relationship, your partner is a great “dream-catcher.” However, when that unformed dream is laughed at, questioned, or belittled, it may not recover. Worse, you may scrap the whole idea. However, if there is one thing a narcissistic person cannot tolerate, it is being inconvenienced. Even just hearing about your bad day is an inconvenience. When you are in a relationship with a narcissist, it can slowly dawn on you that things work well as long as you are convenient.”
Ramani Durvasula, Should I Stay or Should I Go?: Surviving a Relationship with a Narcissist

Awdhesh Singh
“While setting your goal keeps you focused, search for meaning keeps the world in focus. You can’t avoid your responsibilities for personal convenience and set to lead a life that is full of indifference to the world.”
Awdhesh Singh, 31 Ways to Happiness

Awdhesh Singh
“A family which stays together for selfish reasons and not out of love does not stay together for long. When the family is humoured for convenience and necessity, its utility gets over soon. In such cases, children don’t need their parents when they grow up. A wife does not need her husband if she earns her livelihood. A husband may be attracted to a younger and more beautiful woman to fill his life. Parents do not want to waste time and money in bringing up their children who may leave them on growing up and won’t be available in time of need. An investment in a bank would perhaps be more reliable for old age than investment on children.”
Awdhesh Singh, Myths are Real, Reality is a Myth

Gail Godwin
“When someone has enough money, logistics can be worked out in no time.”
Gail Godwin, Evensong

Steve Almond
“Convenience is the gateway drug to entitlement. It drains people of their empathy, because it fosters the illusion that they can proceed through life without hardship. This makes it harder for them to imagine others who are facing hardship.”
Steve Almond

“We’ll sacrifice most anything for speed and convenience. When researchers noticed that cereal sales were going down, they did a study to figure out why. It turns out millennials don’t eat as much cereal because it’s too much trouble to wash the bowl. They grab protein bars or yogurt cups and scarf them on the way to work. Cooking shows are more popular than ever—you can find Bobby Flay putting meat on a fire twenty-four hours a day—but it seems like people are watching instead of cooking, in the same way people watch Fixer Upper a lot more than they fix anything up. The proof is on the shelves. The stuff you used to find in the 7-Eleven is now in the grocery store: Lunchables, protein packs, quickie meals packed in plastic clamshells. Life, to go.”
Tommy Tomlinson, The Elephant in the Room: One Fat Man's Quest to Get Smaller in a Growing America

“Life becomes easy in the metropolis because one is no longer at the helm, making decisions. No physical effort is required for we are now being carried by the modern tide … Mental and physical exertion has been superseded by an all-pervading passivity”
Neil Lewis

Jean Baudrillard
“The shores run together, the waters are parallel. The waters run together, the shores are parallel. A single leaf rustles, the others are silent. Who knows how this dream ends?

He was so thin, so translucent, that he had to pass through the same place twice to leave a shadow.

Living out a destiny of convenience the way others sail under a flag of convenience.”
Jean Baudrillard, Cool Memories

A.D. Aliwat
“Assholes either love convenience or things that require way too much effort, like extreme sports.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

Nothing more!”

Richard Mitchell, The Gift of Fire

“A love of convenience, an insincere love, always ends in betrayal.”
Marty Rubin

Karl Kristian Flores
“Let us wish that the speed granted by our technologies saves us plenty of time for life ahead...Yet, where to is this destination of life that makes the observation of it so dreadful? The impatient people who rush for the new are like fools chasing a mirror, wondering whose face they’d find when they catch it. Nothing awaits us. Convenience will one day reveal that we have nowhere to go, except towards each other.”
Karl Kristian Flores, The Goodbye Song

Valentin Rasputin
“Life was life so that it could go on, it could take everything and survive anywhere, even on bare rock or shifting sands, and if necessary, even under water, but why torture it this way for no good reason, creating totally unnecessary difficulties for people, why worry about small conveniences and create major inconveniences?”
Valentin Rasputin, Farewell to Matyora

Scarlet Jei Saoirse

Scarlet Jei Saoirse, SCARLOSOPHY
