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

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. When you tell the truth, you have nothing to keep track of. The world itself becomes your memory, and if questions arise, you can always point others back to it.

Sam Harris

There is a conventional or popular point of view. There is a personal point of view. There is a large point of view which the majority share. There is a small point of view which just a few share. But there is no right point of view. You are always right. You are always wrong. It just depends from which pole you are looked at. Advances in any field are built upon people with the small or personal point of view.

Paul Arden

People are like sheep: they follow the leader, It is the leader who has a point of view about which way they should go. Having an original point of view or angle is a novelty. Recognising its value is intelligent. Having the courage to stand up for it in tlie face of public opinion is what makes you a winner.

Paul Arden

Perhaps the human soul needs excursions, and must not be denied them. But the point of an excursion is that you come home again.

D. H. Lawrence

Religions are different roads converging on the same point.

Mahatma Gandhi

It’s a cliché, but the experience of walking in the other side’s shoes does seem to be the best way to understand their point of view.

Leonard Mlodinow

When you`re reading or skimming argumentative essays, especially by philosophers, here is a quick trick that may save you much time and effort, especially in this age of simple searching by computer: look for "surely" in the document, and check each occurrence. Not always, not even most of the time, but often the word "surely" is as good as a blinking light locating a weak point in the argument.

Daniel Dennett

After the sun sets and everyone goes home
I am standing alone in a wide field
Little by little, I can`t see ahead of me because of the darkness
It makes me more and more afraid of being alone but
When I opened my tightly shut eyes at some point
Beautiful stars were shining
Like the images of you, who left far away
As I looked at them, I prayed that you`ll come back to me some day

Lee Hi

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.

Harper Lee

I feel my heart glow with an enthusiasm which elevates me to heaven, for nothing contributes so much to tranquillize the mind as a steady purpose - a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.

Mary Shelley

Because if everything`s finite, if everything has a definite beginning, middle, and end, then why even get started in the first place? What`s the point when everything just leads to The End?

Alyson Noel

Proof is derived not through a single piece of evidence, but through that convergence of evidence from numerous lines of inquiry, all of which point to an unmistakable conclusion.

Michael Shermer

The whole point of faith, in fact, is to believe regardless of the evidence, which is the very antithesis of science.

Michael Shermer

Ever hear the saying, Life goes on? It does. Long past the point when everyone else thinks it stopped.

Alyson Noel
