Hans Rosling
“I want people, when they realize they have been wrong about the world, to feel not embarrassment, but that childlike sense of wonder, inspiration, and curiosity that I remember from the circus, and that I still get every time I discover I have been wrong: “Wow, how is that even possible?”
Hans Rosling, Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World—and Why Things Are Better Than You Think

Francis Stevens
“They curtailed the education of the people as needless and too expensive. When the people complained, they placated them by abolishing all grades above the primary and turning the schools into dance halls and free moving-picture theaters.”
Francis Stevens, The Heads of Cerberus

Vernor Vinge
“To think that some lousy contractors could have brought down the greatest nation in history!”
Vernor Vinge, The Peace War

“As often happens when a nationalist leader is elected to office by vilifying other ethnic groups, a wave of racism swept across the country.”
Joel Richard Paul, Without Precedent: Chief Justice John Marshall and His Times

John             Lewis
“Malcolm (X) talked about the need to shift our focus from race to class, both among one another and between ourselves and the white community. He said he believed that was the root of our problems, not just in America, but all over the world. Malcolm was saying, in effect, that it is a struggle for the poor -- for those who have been left out and left behind -- and that it transcends race.”
John Lewis, March: Book Three
