Hugs are part of everybody life for me. Ill hug all sorts of people- I dont worry about it looking unmanly or whatever. I think physical human contact is one of the things that makes living worthwhile.
Words like freedom, justice, democracy are not common concepts; on the contrary, they are rare. People are not born knowing what these are. It takes enormous and, above all, individual effort to arrive at the respect for other people that these words imply.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.
Today the world is the victim of propaganda because people are not intellectually competent. More than anything the United States needs effective citizens competent to do their own thinking.
One of the most horrible features of war is that all the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.
Some people make your life better by walking into it while other people make your life better by simply walking out of it.
What old people say you cannot do, you try and find that you can. Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new.
There are people still in the Republican Party that I believe practice the communication of anger, of disappointment, of regret, of pain, of sorrow, of suffering. That's not what the American people want to hear.
The kingdom of God throughout the world will not be established by Lone Rangers but by the people of God working together.
Live amongst people in such a manner that if you die they weep over you and if you are alive they crave for your company.
There is plenty of room at the top because very few people care to travel beyond the average route. And so most of us seem satisfied to remain within the confines of mediocrity.
People exaggerate both happiness and unhappiness; we are never so fortunate nor so unfortunate as people say we are.
Washington, D.C. is a city filled with people who believe they are important.
We dont necessarily discriminate. We simply exclude certain types of people.
Some people like to talk of intuition as a way of knowing truth; that gut reactions are as good as evidence based facts. Its a really silly way of thinking...
A century and a half after its birth, the modern business corporation, an artificial person made in the image of a human psychopath, now is seeking to remake real people in its image.
Theyre trying to get everyone to use iPads and when people use iPads they end up just using technology to consume things instead of making things.

Now that the wars are coming to an end, I wish you to prosper in peace. May all mortals from now on live like one people in concord and for mutual advancement. Consider the world as your country, with laws common to all and where the best will govern irrespective of tribe. I do not distinguish among men, as the narrow-minded do, both among Greeks and Barbarians. I am not interested in the descendance of the citizens or their racial origins. I classify them using one criterion: their virtue. For me every virtuous foreigner is a Greek and every evil Greek worse than a Barbarian. If differences ever develop between you never have recourse to arms, but solve them peacefully. If necessary, I should be your arbitrator. You must not consider God like an autocratic despot, but as a common Father of all; so your behavior may resemble the life siblings have in a family. On my part I should consider all equals, white or blacks, and wish you all to be not only subjects of the Commonwealth, but participants and partners. As much as this depends on me, I should try to bring about what I promised. The oath we made over tonights libations hold onto as a Contract of Love.
People in this world are like travelers whose journey is going on though they are asleep. ( Life's journey is going on though men may not feel it ).
How we treat other people changes them, but even more so, how we treat other people changes us.
Really if I starve the Tamils out, the Sinhala people will be happy.
