Barbara Sher
“How can families harm us when they love us? Very easily, unfortunately. Most of us overlook one important fact when we think love is enough: Love and respect aren't the same thing.

Love is fusion. As a baby, you belong to your parents, you're extension of them.

Respect is differentiation: you belong to yourself, and you're an extension of no one.

Differentiation is essential for happiness of adults.”
Barbara Sher, I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was: How to Discover What You Really Want and How to Get It

“The world doesn't celebrate your similarity but your difference”
Bernard Kelvin Clive

“Война живет радикализацией схватки. Она является отрицанием равноценности жизни всех людей и потому ведет к различению между другом и врагом, между товарищем по оружию и противником. Тот или иной противник, будучи назван врагом, подвергается раз-индивидуализации, вследствие чего его жизнь признается ничтожной. Поскольку в гражданском состоянии власть распоряжаться насилием, угроза его применения и возможность использования принадлежат государству, то и право различения на друга и врага передается ему, а не остается делом сражающихся. Теперь сражающиеся не вправе решать, кто их друг, а кто враг, т. е. идентифицировать в качестве таковых тех или иных людей.”
Heimo Hofmeister, How War Makes Politics Impossible: A Philosophical Analysis of the Two Ways We Deal with "Otherness"

“As every barrier to the constraint of individualism is removed - as 'I' and 'my' appear in the names of more and more software applications and IT products - nevertheless today's rampant mimeticism ensures that 'I' and 'my' become less and less differentiated from 'you' and 'yours'...We crave differentiation, and deprived of it we blame the failing institutions that once might have delivered it.”
Scott Cowdell, René Girard and Secular Modernity: Christ, Culture, and Crisis

“If you want to reach a hand to your poor perishing fellow-sinners who are just sinking in the quicksands, you must have your own feet on the rock, for it is only by walking in God's ways that you can have firm standing-ground, whence you may reach downward, and give a helping-hand and a strong pull to those who are being engulfed in the quicksands of a perishing world.”
Stevenson A. Blackwood
