Abhijit Naskar, Citizens of Peace: Beyond the Savagery of Sovereignty

“Anybody can populate a planet, by consent or by force, but to master the forces of a planet, it takes valour, curiosity and a ton of insanity - insanity for justice, insanity for equality, insanity for upliftment - without this insanity in a handful of lionhearts, no amount of sanity can lift up the torch of progress. Be vigorous, be insane and use your force of life for the good of your people, your society, your humankind, nay, our humankind.”

Abhijit Naskar
“Your tiny little neighborhood may have all the comfort of modern life, but there are still countless lands across the world, that lack the very basic amenities of life - in these places, justice, peace, sleep, food, water, shelter, are still stories from the Arabian Nights. So, how can you, a creature of conscience and character sleep so sound, on your soft and cozy bed? How my friend? Throw away the sheets, get down from your pedestal of luxury and run to those lands of misery as the rising sun and give your all to instill the basic rights in their helpless existence, so that at least the unborn could be born in an environment that's more humane than savage, that's more just than immoral, that's more accepting than discriminatory, and that's more evolving than stagnant.”
Abhijit Naskar, Citizens of Peace: Beyond the Savagery of Sovereignty

David von Drehle
“From the summer of 1909 to the end of 1911, New York waist makers - young immigrants, mostly women - achieved something profound. They were a catalyst for the forces of change: the drive for women's rights (and other civil rights), the rise of unions, and the use of activist government to address social problems.”
David von Drehle, Triangle: The Fire That Changed America
