Susan Cain
“Now that you're an adult, you might still feel a pang of guilt when you decline a dinner invitation in favor of a good book. Or maybe you like to eat alone in restaurants and could do without the pitying looks from fellow diners. Or you're told that you're "in your head too much", a phrase that's often deployed against the quiet and cerebral.

Or maybe there's another word for such people: thinkers.”
Susan Cain

Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“A scientist is not to teach humans, but to serve humans A philosopher is not to teach humans, but to serve humans. A preacher is not to preach humans, but to serve humans. Any individual who possesses higher intellect than the general population, is meant to be at the forefront of service to humanity.”
Abhijit Naskar, Lord is My Sheep: Gospel of Human

Abhijit Naskar
“Mind you, my identity is of no greater value than the dust under your feet. If there is anything valuable that I can offer, it is my ideas.”

Abhijit Naskar

“Even a great philosophical idea when mixed with mysticism, turns into a dangerous weapon that becomes an impediment in the path of progress of developing communities.”

Abhijit Naskar
“I am very much aware of the fact that there would come people who would attempt to proclaim me being a reincarnation of various sages and monks. But mind you, o conscientious soul, soul doesn’t travel through time, only ideas do, for glorious ideas seek out various vessels through time and inspire the whole world by shaping their psyche, over and over.”
Abhijit Naskar, Lord is My Sheep: Gospel of Human

Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar, Lord is My Sheep: Gospel of Human

Abhijit Naskar
“Books are supposed to give a helping hand to humanity’s progress, not to instruct humanity how to progress. Plato wrote his books to help humanity understand knowledge and wisdom. Tolstoy wrote his books to help humanity understand morality. Einstein wrote his papers to help humanity understand the universe. Darwin wrote his books to help humanity understand the biological history of lifeforms. I write my books to unify humanity beyond all labels. But the point is, none of us ever said that our works are the ultimate measure for humanity to behave properly. None of us ever said that our books are the authority of human life and that only through us humanity can find salvation. Your life is a vehicle that is driven by you, and books can be the helper in the journey, but never the driver themselves.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“I agree that I know nothing. And you know nothing. So, I say, let's figure out together - two equally conditioned pedestrians of freedom with equal potential for truth.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“I am simply the expression of Neuroscience itself.”
Abhijit Naskar, What is Mind?

Abhijit Naskar
“And the one childishly non-scientific mind who molded a childish brain into an excessively curious one is Gadadhar Chatterjee. Without this man, I’d have remained a rat in the race. Without this man, Naskar would have never been truly awakened from the deep sleep of ancient ignorance. He didn’t have even the basic literacy to understand the English alphabets, yet to me he’s The Philosopher of All Philosophers, and the Thinker of All Thinkers. A thousand Platos, Socrateses and Descarteses would have to merge, for one Gadadhar to be born.”
Abhijit Naskar, What is Mind?

Abhijit Naskar
“An entire life, lavishly colored with ecstasies and agonies, is exclusively born from the functional expression of neurochemistry. Every time that we sob in sorrow or laugh in joy, we do so, steered by a glorious storm of hormonal interplay within the deepest parts of our mind. And with each drop of tear that we shed in our times of excruciating pain, our brain constructs majestic new cellular connections to aid in the pursuit of our passion - in the pursuit of truth.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love, God & Neurons: Memoir of a Scientist Who Found Himself by Getting Lost

Abhijit Naskar
“It is in the solitude that legends are born.”
Abhijit Naskar, Neurons of Jesus: Mind of A Teacher, Spouse & Thinker

Abhijit Naskar
“I am a scientist, but it’s not the popularization of science, that I have in mind, rather, my main concern is the well-being of the human society.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“When you hear “Neuroscience” you would probably be thinking about the study of the nervous system. And that’s exactly how the field began its journey into scientific investigation. But I wanted to do something with it, which no other scientist or philosopher had done before. I began moulding the soft clay of Neuroscience with the ingredients of my own philosophy to prepare the actual science of self-realization.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“When the mind is infested with more judgement, conclusions and biases, than the actual urge for understanding, even the sun appears to be a candle and the ocean a pool.”
Abhijit Naskar
