Anyone can be a moral individual, concerned with human rights and problems; but only a college professor, a trained expert, can solve technical problems by 'sophisticated' methods. Ergo, it is only problems of the latter sort that are important or real.
Whatever each individual woman is facing - only she knows her biggest challenge.
The indestructible is one: it is each individual human being and, at the same time, it is common to all, hence the incomparably indivisible union that exists between human beings.
An audience is never wrong. An individual member of it may be an imbecile, but a thousand imbeciles together in the dark - that is critical genius.
An individual ant, even though it has a brain about a millionth of a size of a human being's, can learn a maze; the kind we use is a simple rat maze in a laboratory. They can learn it about one-half as fast as a rat.
E. O. Wilson

The institutions that we've built up over the years to protect our individual privacy rights from the government don't apply to the private sector. The Fourth Amendment doesn't apply to corporations.

Individual potential of life is cosmic potential. Individual is divine deep inside. Transcendental experience awakens that divinity in man. And when you kill a man you deprive him of that birthright of it.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Mutual funds have historically offered safety and diversification. And they spare you the responsibility of picking individual stocks.
It's so fascinating to think about how each snowflake is completely individual - there are millions and millions of them, but each one is so unique.
Social justice is a cancer. Social justice means you are ruled by whatever the mob does. What social justice does is destroy individual responsibility.
Melancholy has ceased to be an individual phenomenon, an exception. It has become the class privilege of the wage earner, a mass state of mind that finds its cause wherever life is governed by production quotas.
As precious as life itself is our heritage of individual freedom, for man's free agency is a God-given gift.
David O. McKay

Only as an individual can man become a philosopher.
It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.
