What is there in man so worthy of honor and reverence as this, that he is capable of contemplating something higher than his own reason, more sublime than the whole universe—that Spirit which alone is self-subsistent, from which all truth proceeds, without which is no truth?
—Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi (German Philosopher)
Courageous people do not fear forgiving for the sake of peace.

—Immanuel Hermann Fichte (German Philosopher)
One cannot spend forever sitting and solving the mysteries of one’s history.
Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him.

Whenever you take a step forward, you are bound to disturb something. You disturb the air as you go forward, you disturb the dust, the ground. You trample upon things. When a whole society moves forward, this trampling is on a much bigger scale; and each thing that you disturb, each vested interest which you want to remove, stands as an obstacle.
—Indira Gandhi (Indian Head of State)
