The world would only begin to get something of value from the moment I stopped being a serious member of society and became -- myself!—Henry Miller
Suspending sanctions, clearing the I.M.F. loan and offering help, real help, may not make the Iranian government less dangerous. But it’s what America should be doing as a great nation, and unlike the alternative, it does hold out the possibility of making Iran less dangerous.—Editorial Board, The New York Times
Racism, the defence mechanism, which our collective psyche, being psychic, saw coming a long mile back, will be sung as prayer for the dead and the crown of asphyxiation will be placed on the skull of arrogance without pomp and circumstance.—Jam Hamidi
Coronavirus Outbreak Is a Pandemic, W.H.O. Declares—New York Times
Iran, like late-Soviet Russia, has a deeply corroded political culture. Prompt establishment of constitutional order may be too much to hope for.—Robert D. Kaplan
Yesterday don't matter if it's gone.—The Rolling Stones
At some point, incompetence and evil become indistinguishable. I feel like we have passed this point several times in the past few years, and Iran’s leadership in particular keeps passing it over and over, like a Formula 1 car doing laps.—Graeme Wood
The truth still exists, the truth still matters. Roger Stone’s insistence that it doesn’t, his belligerence, his pride in his own lies are a threat to our most fundamental institutions, to the foundations of our democracy. If it goes unpunished it will not be a victory for one party or another; everyone loses.—U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble. —Charles Spurgeon
The record over the last four decades indicates that the United States cannot change Iran’s behavior through either coercion or incentive. And it does not have the kind of influence to force other countries in the region to alter their own approaches to Iran and the broader region. Under these circumstances, anything that’s possible is better than aspirations that bear little resemblance to reality—and what’s possible is containment. —Steven A. Cook, Foreign Policy
