G.K. Chesterton
“A pickpocket is obviously a champion of private enterprise. But it would perhaps be an exaggeration to say that a pickpocket is a champion of private property. The point about Capitalism and Commercialism, as conducted of late, is that they have really preached the extension of business rather than the preservation of belongings; and have at best tried to disguise the pickpocket with some of the virtues of the pirate.”
G.K. Chesterton, The Outline of Sanity

Thomas L. Friedman

Thomas L. Friedman, The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century

Enock Maregesi
“Nyota ni kipaji, kipawa, takdiri, karama, au uweza; ni kiashiria cha rohoni kinachoonyesha mtu atakuwa nani baadaye, mafanikio ya mtu, au takdiri ya maisha ya mwanadamu. Unabii na nyota ya ufalme ni kibali cha Mungu katika maisha ya mtu. Kupata kibali hicho, tembea na watu sahihi katika maisha yako (tembea na watu ambao Mungu amekuchagulia kushika funguo za takdiri ya maisha yako). Tamka na kukiri kibali cha Mungu katika maisha yako yote. Panda mbegu za kibali cha Mungu katika udongo wa maisha yako. Jifunze kutenda mema bila malipo, kwani wema ni mbegu ya kibali cha Mungu. Jali mambo ya ufalme wa Mungu.”
Enock Maregesi

Albert Camus
“Le Faust à l'envers. L'homme jeune demande au diable les biens de ce monde. Le diable (qui a un costume sport et déclare volontiers que le cynisme est la grande tentation de l'intelligence) lui dit avec douceur : « Mais les biens de ce monde, tu les as. C'est à Dieu qu'il faut demander ce qui te manque - si tu crois que quelque chose te manque. Tu feras marché avec Dieu et, pour les biens de l'autre monde, tu lui vendras ton corps. »

Après un silence, le diable qui allume une cigarette anglaise ajoute : « Et ce sera ta punition éternelle. »”
Albert Camus, Notebooks 1935-1942
