When people have hope that their economic conditions can improve by simply working harder, they care less about politics and religion, they may not like many things in their society but they are unlikely to get angry to a point of violent uprising or dividing the country. When people feel stuck or when they are poor and do not have much to lose, they are more likely to rise against the people in power.

When people put their ballots in the boxes, they are, by that act, inoculated against the feeling that the government is not theirs.

It's a remarkably shrewd and rather conservative arrangement when one thinks of it.

When people with bad intentions try to enter in your inner universe, in their heart they know who you really are !! and who they are actually, these small minds are insecure because they know your qualities and capabilities so what trick they play is, just because they came in your life, spent time with you, they know your weak points as no body is perfect and they also know that you are a winner with great mind and ideas and can perform better even if they have known what's in your mind they can not do that the way you can do, then they try to come from some other ways and you show through your attitude by winning again and again, by not losing your faith in you and your abilities that you are unstoppable... This is what makes them disappoint, the sad part of the picture is, you are the one with the good intentions whatever you are but you never think bad of anyone, not even for those who don't want to see you happy or successful, you just kept going even they chase you. So be in the picture, stay on the right track with good intention and keep going, if it's in their nature that they have been chasing you, they ll always be chasing you ..... YOU are a leader YOU are a person with great personality YOU are the one, people think of and spend time and energy to know about you, and wish to be like you but you are busy in your life, you don't have time for small things KEEP GOING !!”

When public men indulge themselves in abuse, when they deny others a fair trial, when they resort to innuendo and insinuation, to libel, scandal, and suspicion, then our democratic society is outraged, and democracy is baffled. It has no apparatus to deal with the boor, the liar, the lout, and the antidemocrat in general.

When science, art, literature, and philosophy are simply the manifestation of personality they are on a level where glorious and dazzling achievements are possible, which can make a man's name live for thousands of years. But above this level, far above, separated by an abyss, is the level where the highest things are achieved. These things are essentially anonymous.

When she was a small girl, Amanda hid a ticking clock in an old, rotten tree trunk. It drove woodpeckers crazy. Ignoring tasty bugs all around them, they just about beat their brains out trying to get at the clock. Years later, Amanda used the woodpecker experiment as a model for understanding capitalism, Communism, Christianity, and all other systems that traffic in future rewards rather than in present realities.
