Albert Einstein
“A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.”
Albert Einstein

Derrick Jensen
“Learning has to come from doing, not intellectualizing.”
Derrick Jensen, The Culture of Make Believe

Derrick Jensen
“What if the point of life has nothing to do with the creation of an ever-expanding region of control? What if the point is not to keep at bay all those people, beings, objects and emotions that we so needlessly fear? What if the point instead is to let go of that control? What if the point of life, the primary reason for existence, is to lie naked with your lover in a shady grove of trees? What if the point is to taste each other's sweat and feel the delicate pressure of finger on chest, thigh on thigh, lip on cheek? What if the point is to stop, then, in your slow movements together, and listen to the birdsong, to watch the dragonflies hover, to look at your lover's face, then up at the undersides of leaves moving together in the breeze? What if the point is to invite these others into your movement, to bring trees, wind, grass, dragonflies into your family and in so doing abandon any attempt to control them? What if the point all along has been to get along, to relate, to experience things on their own terms? What if the point is to feel joy when joyous, love when loving, anger when angry, thoughtful when full of thought? What if the point from the beginning has been to simply be?”
Derrick Jensen, A Language Older Than Words

Tennessee Williams
“What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains.”
Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire

Wilkie Collins
“The books - the generous friends who met me without suspicion - the merciful masters who never used me ill!”
Wilkie Collins, Armadale
