Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.

Albert Einstein

Football is a team sport and not an individual sport. We win as a team, and every individual is better if we are part of the team.

Fernando Torres

My generation is on the way out, and each death I have felt as an abruption, a tearing away of part of myself. There will be no one like us when we are gone, but then there is no one like anyone else, ever. When people die, they cannot be replaced. They leave holes that cannot be filled, for it is the fate - the genetic and neural fate - of every human being to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death.

Oliver Sacks

While you pray for your niece to get a much-needed heart transplant, someone else is praying for his organ-donor son`s life to be spared. Whether you`re praying to win a war or a football game, you`re also praying for the people on the opposing side to lose. To assume that God is not only personally invested in the minutiae of your life but that your problems are ultimately more important than other problems he may be asked to solve is both selfish and absurd considering the incredible amount of individual problems and concerns of every human on this planet.

Armin Navabi

It`s a mistake to confuse intelligence with knowledge. Intelligence relates to the way one processes information, not necessarily what she knows or believes. This can lead to an individual making complex justifications to defend her beliefs, even when those beliefs are clearly false.

Armin Navabi

The manner in which some of the most important individual discoveries were arrived at reminds one more of a sleepwalker's performance than an electronic brain's.

Arthur Koestler

What a free society offers to the individual is much more than what he would be able to do if only he were free.

Friedrich Hayek

Many of the greatest things man has achieved are not the result of consciously directed thought, and still less the product of a deliberately co-ordinated effort of many individuals, but of a process in which the individual plays a part which he can never fully understand.

Friedrich Hayek

The more the state "plans" the more difficult planning becomes for the individual.

Friedrich Hayek

The more civilized we become, the more relatively ignorant must each individual be of the facts on which the working of his civilization depends.

Friedrich Hayek

It is a mistake, [...] to suppose that the public wants the environment protected or their lives saved and that they will be grateful to any idealist who will fight for such ends. What the public wants is their own individual comfort.

Isaac Asimov

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.

Galileo Galilei

Any one strong individual could change the future for countless others, that it happened all the time.

Anne Rice

The world isn`t run by the laws written on paper. It`s run by people. Some according to laws, others not. It depends on each individual how his world will be, how he makes it. And you also need a whole lot of luck, so that somebody else doesn`t make your life hell. And it ain`t as simple as they tell you in grade school. But it is good to have strong values and to maintain them. In marriage, in crime, in war, always and everywhere.

Mafia

Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.

Viktor E. Frankl
