It is good to know what is wrong with the world. But it is just as important to know that sometimes, no matter how wrong it is, you cannot change it. And a lot of the bad stuff in the world was not really that bad until some one tried to change it. 
Karla Shantharam _G.D. Roberts

No political philosophy I ever heard of loves the human race as much as Anarchism. Every other way of looking at the world says that people have to be controlled and ordered around and governed. Only Anarchism trusts the human being enough to let him work it out for himself

There are many animals that can express their happiness; but only the human animal has the genius to express a magnificent sadness. And for me it is some thing special, a daily meditation. Sadness is my one and only art.

Not true, many animals express sadness, we are not the only ones

A major source of conflict in the contemporary world is the presumption that people can be uniquely categorized based on religion or culture...ignoring the other identities that people have and value, involving class, gender, profession, language, science,morals and politics.

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
- Mahatma Gandhi
