Gilbert K. Chesterton
Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must - at that moment - become the center of the universe.
The only way to save a rhinoceros is to save the environment in which it lives, because there's a mutual dependency between it and millions of other species of both animals and plants.
It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones.

If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem.
Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures, and cats like authors for the same reasons.
But I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead. So I'll take getting older.
Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.
To say that gender is performative is a little different because for something to be performative means that it produces a series of effects. We act and walk and speak and talk in ways that consolidate an impression of being a man or being a woman.
I don't doll myself up for TV because I want people to accept me for who I am.
I think there is a danger there of being mean to people and humiliating people and embarrassing people just because it might get you ratings. It is a disturbing trend.
It's kind of interesting, because hacking is a skill that could be used for criminal purposes or legitimate purposes, and so even though in the past I was hacking for the curiosity, and the thrill, to get a bite of the forbidden fruit of knowledge, I'm now working in the security field as a public speaker.
Be nice to people on your way up because you'll meet them on your way down.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

The name Muhammad is the most common name in the world. In all the countries around the world - Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon - there are more Muhammads than anything else.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
