Common sense often makes good law.
– William Orville Douglas
Rate it:
Common-sense appears to be only another name for the thoughtlessness of the unthinking. It is made of the prejudices of childhood, the idiosyncrasies of individual character and the opinion of the newspapers.
– W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence

Rate it:
Commonly, people believe that defeat is characterized by a general bustle and a feverish rush. Bustle and rush are the signs of victory, not of defeat. Victory is a thing of action. It is a house in the act of being built. Every participant in victory sweats and puffs, carrying the stones for the building of the house. But defeat is a thing of weariness, of incoherence, of boredom. And above all of futility.
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Rate it:
Communism, my friend, is more than Marxism, just as Catholicism is more than the Roman Curia. There is a mystique as well as a politick. Catholics and Communists have committed great crimes, but at least they have not stood aside, like an established society, and been indifferent. I would rather have blood on my hands than water like Pilate.

Rate it:
Comparatively few people know what a million dollars actually is. To the majority it is a gaseous concept, swelling or decreasing as the occasion suggests. In the minds of politicians, perhaps more than anywhere, the notion of a million dollars has this accordion-like ability to expand or contract; if they are disposing of it, the million is a pleasing sum, reflecting warmly upon themselves; if somebody else wants it, it becomes a figure of inordinate size, not to be compassed by the rational mind.
– Robertson Davies

Compartiendo una experiencia extraña de mis años de estudiante en Manchester, Inglaterra, durante la década de 1970. Acababa de llegar en Inglaterra desde la India, y fue en busca de un alojamiento, básicamente una habitación para alquilar. Yo siempre solía llamar a los terratenientes ingleses por phnoe primero, para asegurarse de que la habitación estaba disponible, y luego visitar esas direcciones, ubicadas kilómetros de distancia, al tomar el autobús o un tren. A mi llegada, siempre me dijeron que, o bien no había espacio para nada o que la habitación estaba alquilado. Después de una docena de tales experiencias frustrantes, se hizo evidente para mí que la habitación estaba siempre disponible - pero los terratenientes ingleses y patronas eran reacios a alquilar a alguien como yo, un indio o una persona no blanca. Curiosamente, la habitación estaba siempre disponible para mi voz en el teléfono, porque mi voz no podía revelar, ya sea mi color de piel, o de mi carrera o mi origen nacional. El misterio se disipó por lo tanto, y sin embargo, esa comprensión fue sin duda un duro despertar para el color verdadero de la sociedad Inglés. Fue mi primer encuentro con los prejuicios y la discriminación, y el momento más impactante que destruye la inocencia por completo - especialmente después de venir de una cultura noble y la mejor educación que se enorgullece de la igualdad. Yo siempre seguiré siendo agradecidos a inglaterra para la mejor educación que he recibido durante mi doctorado y el máster, tanto como por ejemplo la exposición hacia el lado oscuro del mundo real. Años más tarde, después de llegar a Estados Unidos, me di cuenta de que Estados Unidos es un nuevo mundo maravilloso conjunto que da la bienvenida a todos, y trata a todos con respeto y dignidad que merecen. Dios bendiga a América!
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
