William E. Gladstone
There is a kind of courtesy in skepticism. It would be an offense against polite conventions to press our doubts too far.
The man who has his millions will want everything he can lay his hands on and then raise his voice against the poor devil who wants ten cents more a day.
There are no lines in nature, only areas of colour, one against another.
In morals, theosophy builds its teachings on the unity, seeing in each form the expression of a common life, and therefore the fact that what injures one injures all. To do evil i.e., to throw poison into the life-blood of humanity, is a crime against the unity.
I want to stand for something, and it's probably going to be something that some people stand against.
I was taught to do math and read at the same time. So you're six years old, you're reading 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' and it becomes rapidly obvious that there are only two kinds of men in the world: dwarves and Prince Charmings.

The battle against cancer has made me strong. It's like winning a war! When I was diagnosed, I was told by doctors my kidney, liver and other organs could fail. It was tough.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
