I say to offer to pardon something one fears is the act of a coward.

Black Sails (movie)

The motives by which we act are inscribed in our intimate structure as mammals, as hunters, as social beings: reason illuminates these connections, it does not generate them. We are not, in the first place, reasoning beings. We may perhaps become so, more or less, in the second. In the first instance, we are driven by a thirst for life, by hunger, by the need to love, by the instinct to find our place in human society... The second instance does not even exist without the first. Reason arbitrates between instincts but uses the very same instincts as primary criteria in its arbitration.

Carlo Rovelli

A single act can have ramifications beyond one`s own comprehension.

NCIS (movie)

Meera Vijayann

A lot of times when people make accusations like that about other people - "Oh, he can't really be doing this for principled reasons, he must have some corrupt, nefarious reason" - they're saying a lot more about themselves than they are the target of their accusations, because those people, the ones who make that accusation, they themselves never act for any reason other than corrupt reasons, so they assume that everybody else is plagued by the same disease of soullessness as they are, and so that's the assumption.

Glenn Greenwald

How we behave is a balancing act between our future and present selves. In the future, we want to be fit, but in the present, we want the candy bar. In the future, we want to be a well-rounded, wellinformed intellectual virtuoso, but right now we want to watch Jersey Shore. Behavioral economists call this present bias - the gap between your preferences for your future self and your preferences in the current moment.

Eli Pariser

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.

Anatole France
