Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you. —Walt Whitman
Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale. Outrageous threat in thousands of years. Climate change. If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.—David Attenborough
"Tunisia is a civil country that is based on three elements: Citizenship, the will of the people, and the supremacy of law,” and that “the rights and duties of Tunisian men and women are equal, and that the state is committed to defending women’s rights and works on supporting and developing them."—President Beji Caid Essebsi
As a child, I had two visions: one when I was five and one when I was six. The first time, I saw our Prophet Ali, he who, according to our religion, disappeared to return the day he would save the world. I had an accident: I fell against a rock. And he saved me: He placed himself between me and the rock. I know because I saw him. And not in a dream: in reality. Material reality, if you see what I mean. I alone saw him.—Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi
When animals are crossing a ford, if the one in front goes crookedly, all the others go crookedly. So too, among human beings, when the leader behaves unrighteously, other people behave unrighteously. If the leader is unrighteous, the entire country is miserable.—Buddha Shakyamuni
Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history.. Unfortunately, it might also be our last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.—Stephen Hawking
We are very close to the point when unlike the KGB and unlike the Catholic Church, Facebook or Google will be able to understand you better than you understand yourself because they will have the data, they will have the biological knowledge and they will have the computing power necessary to understand exactly how you feel and why you feel the way that you feel.—Historian Yuval Noah Harari
A crisis is looming in Iran’s healthcare sector: patients are reporting shortages in life-saving medicine. The situation is expected to worsen once US sanctions on Iran are reimposed in November. European and US companies that can provide the advanced medicine and equipment needed to treat chronic diseases inside Iran are grappling with how to sustain their operations. —Ellie Geranmayeh & James Miller
We call on the international community to strongly condemn the executions [of Zaniar Moradi, Loghman Moradi, and Ramin Hossein Panahi] and urge the Iranian authorities to respect their obligations under international law. The Iranian authorities must take steps to ensure that everyone has a fair trial, that torture and other ill-treatment are absolutely prohibited, and that the practice of forced ‘confessions’ is stopped once and for all.—Amnesty International
For the last 242 years there has been a movement to transform America from a closed society to a more open society, and it opened access to the voting booth, classrooms, employment opportunities and public accommodations. The Department of Justice is now moving away from that, and its emerging view of civil rights is a dangerous trend, inconsistent with legal history, and a disturbing manifestation of President Trump.—Norman Siegel, frm dir New York Civil Liberties Union
