Did Superman really want to save the world, or did he just feel like he had to? Would he much rather be a farmer? Maybe. Would he much rather be hanging out with his dad and his mom and his dog? Probably.
Ninety-nine percent of the people in the world are fools and the rest of us are in great danger of contagion.
We can have a World War, I see absolutely no reason why we shouldn't have a World Party.
Let no man in the world live in delusion. Without a Guru none can cross over to the other shore.
What I know now is that we're all interconnected and that's a really beautiful thing. We have links to everyone else in our lives and in the world. Different people have different journeys for different reasons. You can't judge, but you can celebrate that there are connections everywhere.
The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.
Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.
You begin saving the world by saving one man at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics.
Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way. A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self.
Commencement speeches were invented largely in the belief that outgoing college students should never be released into the world until they have been properly sedated.

Maybe it's a little depressing to think that my vision of a perfect world is actually so messed up, but I think it means that I don't really understand what 'perfect' is.
History repeats itself, but the special call of an art which has passed away is never reproduced. It is as utterly gone out of the world as the song of a destroyed wild bird.
In marketing I've seen only one strategy that can't miss - and that is to market to your best customers first, your best prospects second and the rest of the world last.
There is nothing in the world like the devotion of a married woman. It is a thing no married man knows anything about.
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity.
W. E. B. Du Bois

The world is like a grand staircase, some are going up and some are going down.
Breast cancer alone kills some 458,000 people each year, according to the World Health Organization, mainly in low- and middle-income countries.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
