“You are a manipulator.
I like to think of myself more as an outcome engineer.”
J.R. Ward, Lover Eternal

Theodore J. Kaczynski
“Our society tends to regard as a sickness any mode of thought or behavior that is inconvenient for the system and this is plausible because when an individual doesn't fit into the system it causes pain to the individual as well as problems for the system. Thus the manipulation of an individual to adjust him to the system is seen as a cure for a sickness and therefore as good.”
Theodore Kaczynski

Erik Pevernagie
“Codes and semiotic conventions are a challenge for human communication, since they seal off people with a privacy protection label and make them accessible only by means of a barcode that might estrange them from their surroundings but, at the same time, procure them a kind of reassurance in their comfort zone. This dialectical situation may keep them struggling during their entire life. ("The unbreakable code " )”
Erik Pevernagie

Jeff Mach, There and Never, Ever Back Again: Diary of a Dark Lord

“Your faith is your conscience, and your conscience is your faith. You cannot have faith without a conscience, but you can have a conscience without faith. Man was designed to be good with or without religion, yet the challenge for many is staying good. Some people claim to be religious but have no conscience, while some people without religion are very much aware of their conscience. Therefore, a religious label does not define your character or validate your worth. In the end, all men will be judged by the amount of truth in them and the weight of their hearts. The heavier the conscience, the heavier the truth. The lighter the heart, the higher it goes. The only spiritual currency one has in the afterlife is amassed in the form of light, in that, the amount you have depends on the weight of your words and deeds in the living. Conscience is everything. Conscience is what connects us to the truth and light of the highest power source of all. God. The cosmic heart of the universe.”
Suzy Kassem

Shannon L. Alder
“Sometimes, it is easier for people to believe lies then deal with the uncomfortableness of their own fear of action. These type of people feel uncomfortable unless everyone is the same or God presents them with what is easy and obvious. It is a life long coping mechanism for the greatest fear of all--regret.”
Shannon L. Alder

Judah Smith
“We need to abandon our scale and adopt God's because our misguided labels keep us from the right kind of interaction with people.”

“I was much crazier than I had imagined. Or maybe it was a bad idea to read DSM-IV when you're not a trained professional. Or maybe the American Psychiatric Association had a crazy desire to label all life a mental disorder.”
Jon Ronson, The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry

Jane Stanton Hitchcock
“People described me then as a "socialite," a label I loathe. It cast me in a lurid and ridiculous light, implying a life of privileged frivolity where everyone fits around from one party to the next wearing calculated clothes and expensive smiles”
Jane Stanton Hitchcock, Social Crimes

Paul Bamikole
“Once you accept a label you may have to wear it for the rest of your short life. Don't accept any negative label from anyone no matter who they are.
If you have accepted any negative label, it's time to take them off of you.”
Paul Bamikole

M.F. Moonzajer, LOVE, HATRED AND MADNESS

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“To label someone as selfless is symptomatic of having bought the preposterous claim that a human being can have great concern for other human beings and little concern for themselves, or that, when taken to extremes, a human being can have great concern for other human beings and absolutely no concern for themselves.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Selfish Genie: A Satirical Essay on Altruism

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“To label myself is similar to thinking that I can come up with a single phrase to explain the universe.”

Who am I without these?
My state of being or color of my skin

Christina Engela
“Religious extremism is fatal to those who don't conform to its values, or remold or submit themselves to its 'principles'. It craves control and power - and power is the one tool that enables it to wreak its characteristic havoc, destruction and cruelty upon those it chooses to label as scapegoats. Giving in to extremists enables them and empowers them - and worse, it encourages them.”
Christina Engela

Salil Jha

Ranjani Rao
“A name after all is a label as personal as “sweetheart” that a lover may use or as distant as a “hey you” that a stranger in a crowd may call out. But a name is more than a label. It is an inheritance that is uniquely your own. It is the primary way in which you respond to the world and the lens through which the world sees you. It defines you, shapes you, and grounds you. It is the one right you take for granted from the time you start interacting with society.”
Ranjani Rao, Rewriting My Happily Ever After - A Memoir of Divorce and Discovery

Steven Magee
