Every sentence I utter must be understood not as an affirmation, but as a question.

Niels Henrik David Bohr

Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.

Jim Rohn

Martha Graham

Islam united all heresies persecuted in Byzantine Empire and synthesised them well into a conseffion that later became a symbol of Arab self-affirmation.

Lev Gumilev

What has here happened is that the instinct of cruelty, which has turned inwards, has become self-torture, and all mans animal instincts have been reinterpreted as guilt towards God. Every Nay man utters to his nature, to his real being, he flings out as a Yea, an affirmation of reality applied to Gods sanctity

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

Humor is an affirmation of dignity, a declaration of man's superiority to all that befalls him.

Roman Gary

I wish more of us could understand that our increasing isolation, no matter how much it seems to express pride and self-affirmation, is not the answer to our problems. Rather, the answer is a revival of our ancient commitment to God, who rules over all the peoples of the world and exalts no one over any other, and to the moral and spiritual values which were once legendary in America. We must reach out our hand in friendship both to those who would befriend us and those who would be our enemy. We must believe in the power of education. We must respect just laws. We must love ourselves, our old and or young, our women as well as our men. I see nothing inconsistent between being proud of oneself and one's ancestors and, at the same time, seeing oneself first and foremost a member of the commonwealth of all races and creeds.

Arthur Robert Ashe, Jr.

Anselme Bellegarrigue

Violence breeds violence. Acts of violence committed in justice or in affirmation of rights or in defense of peace do not end violence. They prepare and justify its continuation.

Wendell Berry

I didn't enter into this to get any kind of affirmation or confirmation. I entered into this to see what I could do for other people to give them my sincerity, to give them my love and my care, to take a load off, to have a smile, to have a memory or two.
