Criss Jami, Killosophy

Martin Luther King Jr.
“It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation. Not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, "Wait on time.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

“A truly good person will speak truth, act with truth, and stand for Truth. A truly good person is not afraid to think from their heart; therefore, allowing nonconformist decisions, viewpoints, and perspectives to lead their life. By following their heart, they stand with their conscience, and only with God.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Orson Scott Card
“So from then on, he looked at all his choices and said, What would a good person do, and then did it. But he has now learned something very important about human nature. If you spend your whole life pretending to be good, then you are indistinguishable from a good person. Relentless hypocrisy eventually becomes the truth.”
Orson Scott Card, Ender in Exile

Enid Blyton
“The point is not that I don't recognise bad people when I see them — I grant you I may quite well be taken in by them — the point is that I know a good person when I see one.”
Enid Blyton, The Rubadub Mystery

Criss Jami

Criss Jami
“The best people are always the worst. They drive everyone mad by being so good at second-guessing everything bad.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Terry Pratchett
“You see, the only thing the good people are good at is overthrowing the bad people. And you're good at that, I'll grant you. But the trouble is it's the only thing you're good at. One day it's the ringing of the bells and the casting down of the evil tyrant, and the next it's everyone sitting around complaining that ever since the tyrant was overthrown no one's been taking out the trash. Because the bad people know how to plan. It's part of the specification, you might say. Every evil tyrant has a plan to rule the world. The good people don't seem to have the knack.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

C. JoyBell C.
“I am not afraid of people who say all the wrong things that make others gasp in disbelief. I am afraid of the people who say all the right things that make others bow in admiration. It is incredibly easy to say all the right things. We all know exactly what the majority of people want to believe and want to hear. All we have to do is give them what they want, they will bow before us. Anybody can do that. I am more afraid of people who would like to persuade me into admiration, than of people who are simply being people; sinning openly and talking like drunken thieves. That's who they are on the outside, it's also who they are on the inside.”
C. JoyBell C.

“All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing.”
Carlton Smith, Hunting Evil

David McCullough
“When bad news is riding high and despair in fashion, when loud mouths and corruption seem to own center stage, when some keep crying that the country is going to the dogs, remember it’s always been going to the dogs in the eyes of some, and that 90 percent, or more, of the people are good people, generous-hearted, law-abiding, good citizens who get to work on time, do a good job, love their country, pay their taxes, care about their neighbors, care about their children’s education, and believe, rightly, as you do, in the ideals upon which our way of life is founded.”
David McCullough, The American Spirit: Who We Are and What We Stand For

“Whilst some people inspire, others conspire!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Donna Tartt, The Secret History

A.D. Aliwat

A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

Sherman Alexie
“Paul believed American greatness and the ghosts of that greatness surrounded him. But who could publicly express such a belief and not be ridiculed as a patriotic fool? Paul believed in his fellow Americans, in their extraordinary decency, in their awesome ability to transcend religion, race, and class, but what leftist could state such things and ever hope to get laid by any other lefty?”
Sherman Alexie, War Dances

“It is important to surround yourself with people who will help you grow every day”
Senthil Kumar Mukkandi

Abhijit Naskar
“Sciencelessness and senselessness are all okay, as long as they don't lead to heartlessness. Being good people is what being human is about, it has nothing to do with either faith or facts. Facts may help life, faith may help life, but none of it makes a person good on their own, unless the person genuinely has an active spirit of goodwill.

It's the person that makes science good, it's the person that makes faith good, not the other way around. A good scientist does good with their science, a good preacher does good with their faith. It all depends on the person - it depends on the person's heart, not on the science or on the faith.

Marie Curie was a scientist, but what makes her a great scientist is not her dedication to science, which is quite common in many scientists, but her indomitable and rather radical drive to use science to serve humankind, so much so that instead of monetizing on her hard-fought discovery of radium, she gave it away – she never filed a patent for it that is.

So to those aiming to be scientists, I say, if you are brilliant in head but cold at heart, you'd make an average scientist, but if there is warmth in your heart, you'd make a great scientist, even if you are average in head.

'Cause, that my friend, is what science is about. That is what intellect is about. And the same applies to every single tool with the potential for good. Your field of work doesn't make you a good person, if you are a good person, you make that field a good field.”
Abhijit Naskar, Making Britain Civilized: How to Gain Readmission to The Human Race

Kristen Butler
“Don't give up. Good people just like you still exist.”
Kristen Butler

“Angels don't have wings and devils don't have horns. So, it's hard to tell them apart.”
Marty Rubin

Abhijit Naskar
“There is no heaven, only good human. There is no paradise, only good people.”
Abhijit Naskar, Ingan Impossible: Handbook of Hatebusting

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“It’s not about being good. It’s about releasing good.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Abhijit Naskar
“Do you know I am (The Sonnet)

Oh, so many times have I heard,
Do you know who I am!
So today when I travel places,
I walk around as a total lamb!
There's an immense relief,
In not flashing my name.
Windbags make all the noise,
Beings with character stay inane.
Be an elephant, strong yet gentle,
You observe more by being a dumbbell.
Blow your top when it's really needed,
Otherwise, be good people among the people.
All roads lead to people, not to mythical Rome.
Names aloof from people have no living role.”
Abhijit Naskar, Ingan Impossible: Handbook of Hatebusting

“Do you think you are a good person? Think again, I say! Think Gandhiji! He nursed lepers, opened his home to leprosy patients! See, to be a really good person, you have to be involved in such extraordinary work! Sit down, think, are you a good person?”
Mehmet Murat ildan

“Good people never die, they live forever in the hearts of the people who their lives touched, " A tribute to Her Majesty QE II.

Rabindranath Tagore
“If there are a few good people in the world, let them be, but may all others remain natural. Otherwise, work can’t go on, nor can the soul survive.”
