People Quotes

Compassion is not a popular virtue. Very often when I talk to religious people, and mention how important it is that compassion is the key, that it's the sine qua non of religion, people look kind of balked, and stubborn sometimes, as much to say, "what's the point of having religion if you can't disapprove of other people?" And sometimes we use religion just to back up these unworthy hatreds, because we're frightened too.

I guess the clarification I should make here is that Japan is as potentially racist as anywhere else, but for a developed country, the legal and social protections and recourses afforded to people of differences are lacking comparatively. Racial discrimination is still not illegal in Japan, and this is something the Japanese government promised to fix when it signed the UN Convention on it in 1995. In short, Japan is not an outlier in terms of racism, but it is in terms of protections against it.

Two things cause people to be destroyed: fear of poverty and seeking superiority through pride.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Hearts of people are like wild beasts. They attach themselves to those who love and train them.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

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 ).
