Others - Quotes


Every person must decide, at some point, whether they will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. (...) Life`s most persistent and urgent question is. "What are you doing for others?"

Martin Luther King

He that cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass if he would ever reach heaven; for everyone has need to be forgiven.

George Herbert

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Nelson Mandela

George Santayana

Lies beget other lies. Unlike statements of fact, which require no further work on our part, lies must be continually protected from collisions with reality.

Sam Harris


Don`t blindly believe what I say. Don`t believe me because others convince you of my words. Don`t believe anything you see, read, or hear from others, whether of authority, religious teachers or texts. Don`t rely on logic alone, nor speculation. Don`t infer or be deceived by appearances. Do not give up your authority and follow blindly the will of others. This way will lead to only delusion. Discover for yourself what is truth, what is real.


The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Mahatma Gandhi

Sam Harris

Some folks seem to have descended from the chimpanzee much later than others.

Frank McKinney Hubbard

How you present yourself is how others will value you.

Paul Arden

Ideas are like seeds: they are abundant, and most of them never grow into anything. Also, ideas are seldom original. Ask several independent groups to brainstorm on the same topic at the same time, and you will likely get many of the same ideas. This is not a limitation of brainstorming; it is true of all creation. Because everything arises from steps, not leaps, most things are invented in several places simultaneously when different people walk the same path, each unaware of the others.

Kevin Ashton

We hunger for significance for signs that our personal existence is of special meaning to the universe. To that end, we are all to eager to deceive ourselves and others to discern a sacred image in a grilled cheese sandwich or find a divine warning in a comet.
