Quotation Of The Day

Post by sarcasm » 18 Feb 2021, 10:07

Share your daily quotes please ..................

I will start : )

"History should be taught as the history of the rise of civilization, and not as the history of this nation or that. It should be taught from the point of view of mankind as a whole, and not with undue emphasis upon one’s own country. Children should learn that every country has committed crimes and that most crimes were blunders. They should learn how mass hysteria can drive a whole nation into folly and into persecution of the few who are not swept away by the prevailing madness."

― Bertrand Russell 1872 - 1970 (British philosopher and Historian - Nobel laureate)

"I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence... I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honour than that she should, in a cowardly manner, become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor.

But I believe that nonviolence is infinitely superior to violence, forgiveness is more manly than punishment. Forgiveness adorns a soldier...But abstinence is forgiveness only when there is the power to punish; it is meaningless when it pretends to proceed from a helpless creature....

But I do not believe India to be helpless....I do not believe myself to be a helpless creature....Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

We do want to drive out the beast in the man, but we do not want on that account to emasculate him. And in the process of finding his own status, the beast in him is bound now and again to put up his ugly appearance.

The world is not entirely governed by logic. Life itself involves some kind of violence and we have to choose the path of least violence."

Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)





"ሎሚ ብጉምብሕ-ጉምብሕ ክንከይድ እንተ ድኣ ተቐቢልና፡ ጽባሕ ድማ ብበጠ-በጥ ክንከይድ ከገድዱና'ዮም!" - ስዩም ዑ/ሚካኤል (ስዩም ሓረስታይ)

"Should it happen that a strong Government finds it may with impunity destroy a weak people, then the hour strikes for that weak people to appeal to the League of Nations to give its judgment in all freedom. God and history will remember your judgment."

Haile Selassie I
