His Holiness The Dalai Lama (Enhanced Edition) by Comcast NBCUniversal
Buddha’s teachings can be summarized in the phrase, “If you can’t help others, at least don’t harm them.” This shows the basic practice is to not harm any living being and, if possible, on that basis to help others as much as possible and relieve suffering. Suffering can be traced back to the mind, with fundamental ignorance at its root. Therefore, ultimately, the best way to help others is to give them wisdom, the antidote to ignorance.

George Carlin
“I often warn people: "Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, 'There is no "I" in team.' What you should tell them is, 'Maybe not. But there is an "I" in independence, individuality and integrity.”
George Carlin

George Carlin
“Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations that've long since bought and paid for, the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pocket, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and the information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them.”
George Carlin

Svetlana Alexievich
“Death is the fairest thing in the world. No one's ever gotten out of it. The earth takes everyone - the kind, the cruel, the sinners. Aside from that, there's no fairness on earth.”
Svetlana Aleksievich, Voices from Chernobyl: The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster

Hermann Hesse
“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Thich Nhat Hanh
“Many people have the desire to let go, but they’re not able to do so because they don’t yet have enough insight; they haven’t seen other alternatives, other doorways to peace and happiness. Fear is an element that prevents us from letting go. We’re fearful that if we let go we’ll have nothing else to cling to. Letting go is a practice; it’s an art. One day, when you’re strong enough and determined enough, you’ll let go of the afflictions that make you suffer.”
Thích Nhất Hạnh, The Pocket Thich Nhat Hanh
