One of the chief obstacles to intelligence is credulity, and credulity could be enormously diminished by instructions as to the prevalent forms of mendacity. Credulity is a greater evil in the present day than it ever was before, because, owing to the growth of education, it is much easier than it used to be to spread misinformation, and, owing to democracy, the spread of misinformation is more important than in former times to the holders of power.
– Bertrand RussellRate it:
One of the commonalities between many movies that come from Asian subcontinent is their strange and distasteful sense of humor to make fun of disabled, fat, ugly and less fortunate people , in general. It's a shocking observation that is truly disturbing, when you thin about it. Making fun of fat people won't make anybody any thinner, likewise making fun of ugly people won't make them any prettier either. Also, making fun of unsuccessful people won't necessarily make the mocker more successful. So why movie-makers and actors stoop to such low level of humor? It's best to leave those fellow human beings in the hands of the Sureme Power who created them. And the hard-hearted movie-makers and actors should, instead of making fun of people, work on improving themselves. We all are God's Children, and we must treat each other with respect and dignity.

– J.B. PriestleyRate it:
One of the diseases of this age is the multitude of books. It is a thriftless and a thankless occupation, this writing of books: a man were better to sing in a cobbler?s shop, for his pay is a penny a patch; but a book-writer, if he get sometimes a few commendations from the judicious, he shall be sure to reap a thousand reproaches from the malicious.

– ColinRate it:
One of the fundamental reasons why so many doctors become cynical and disillusioned is precisely because, when the abstract idealism has worn thin, they are uncertain about the value of the actual lives of the patients they are treating. This is not because they are callous or personally inhuman: it is because they live in and accept a society which is incapable of knowing what a human life is worth.
– John BergerRate it:
One of the genius writers of 20th century, Hermann Hesse, Nobel Laureate and my most favorite author, wrote: "Most people...are like a falling leaf that drifts and turns in the air, flutters, and falls to the ground. But a few others are like stars which travel one defined path: no wind reaches them, they have within themselves their guide and path." I like this quote, because it is so enlightening and powerful. It's also a constant reminder that you are the Star, and you must maintain your character - no matter what others say or do. Also not to forget that the Star does have ability to turn into Supernova, which brightens the Universe with such a powerful light that can only come from millions of Suns. Always strive to be that shining Star, and ultimately Supernova, to illuminate the world.
