The only freedom which deserves the name is that of pursuing our own good, in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.
John Stuart Mill
Power is not an institution, and not a structure; neither is it a certain strength we are endowed with; it is the name that one attributes to a complex strategical situation in a particular society.
I don't think a name defines the core of who you are.
I think a child should be allowed to take his father's or mother's name at will on coming of age. Paternity is a legal fiction.
Little evil would be done in the world if evil never could be done in the name of good.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
As for Aliki - if you were to stand in the middle of Rome and say the name Sophia Loren, or Paris and say the name Catherine Deneuve or Brigitte Bardot, or L.A. and the name Marilyn Monroe, it's like standing in Athens, or anywhere in wide-flung Greece, and saying Aliki Vougiouklaki. A huge star - and so little known elsewhere in the world.
Our creator is the same and never changes despite the names given Him by people here and in all parts of the world. Even if we gave Him no name at all, He would still be there, within us, waiting to give us good on this earth.
George Washington Carver
I don't have a bank account because I don't know my mother's maiden name.
You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.
My father told me 'Name your price in the beginning. If it ever gets more expensive than the price you name, get out of there.'
It is not a God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes.
Sometimes I have these fantasies of just moving to a foreign country and coming back with a full head of hair. Or not even come back! Make a new life there with hair... Change my name, just see what happens.
Boxing is the only sport you can get your brain shook, your money took and your name in the undertaker book.
I'm a control freak. If you're going to slap my name on something, I would like to control it.
Cassius Clay is a name that white people gave to my slave master. Now that I am free, that I don't belong anymore to anyone, that I'm not a slave anymore, I gave back their white name, and I chose a beautiful African one.
If one is to be called a liar, one may as well make an effort to deserve the name.
A. A. Milne
Tennis players we're always playing in center courts that feel like arenas. And when we get on the court and the crowd cheers your name or salutes you - it's like you're a gladiator in the arena. And everyone is cheering - and you're fighting, you're screaming, during your strokes - it feels like you're an animal, fighting for your life.
I never have really become accustomed to the 'John.' Nobody ever really calls me John... I've always been Duke or Marion or John Wayne. It's a name that goes well together, and it's like one word - John Wayne.
In my office in Jerusalem, there's an ancient seal. It's a signet ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible.

His name was Netanyahu.

Lana Del Rey
Use power to help people. For we are given power not to advance our own purposes nor to make a great show in the world, nor a name. There is but one just use of power and it is to serve people.
George W. Bush
I learned early on that one of the secrets of campus leadership was the simplest thing of all: speak to people coming down the sidewalk before they speak to you. I would always look ahead and speak to the person coming toward me. If I knew them I would call them by name, but even if I didn't I would still speak to them.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
