I have suffered a great many catastrophes in my life. Most of them never happened.—Mark Twain
What we’ve been undergoing to a large extent is a form of psychological abuse, actually, by very narcissistic, hegemonic governments and officials for a very long time. It’s a form of gas lighting where actually our own faith in our ability to judge a situation, and to some extent even our own identity, has been eroded and damaged to the point where we’re effectively accepting their version of reality.—Vanessa Beeley
Life is the wave's deep whisper on the shore of a great sea beyond.—Henry Abbey
The speech was interesting in many ways, including his tough line on the Saudis and their allies not doing enough to confront their extremists, urging them to drive the extremists out. But the most consequential part of it may be his line that Iran must be isolated until it has a different regime that deals with the world differently. Just when Iranians voted overwhelmingly for openness and engagement with world, Trump clenched his fist and responded by calling for Iran's isolation. —Trita Parsi
Donald Trump is manifestly the most ill-informed, under-prepared, ethically challenged and psychologically ill-equipped president in US history—Former Foreign Minister of Australia , Gareth Evans
Today is an important victory for me and the UN human rights system, but by no means erases seven years of detention without charge... while my children grew up. That is not something I can forgive or forget,—Julian Assange, after charges against him were dropped
You get the politicians you deserve—Barack Obama
Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.—Horace Mann
All countries should change their policies, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE and Bahrain, as well as Iran, Oman and Syria. We all have to do this by changing our current foreign policy. We have to sit with each other. Why are we fighting each other? What is the reason?—Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
We need to learn from Iraq and Libya — wars that were propagated as necessary to relieve human suffering, but actually increased human suffering many times over.—Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii)
