It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.
There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and truly become philosophers, and political power and philosophy thus come into the same hands.
When a person doesn't have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.
Literature is one of the most interesting and significant expressions of humanity.
P. T. Barnum
