"Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and, therefore, the foundation of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared." - J.K. Rowling

[Quote No.45815] Need Area: Friends > General
"Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention aand innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathise with humans whose experiences we have never shared. Unlike any other creature on this planet, humans can learn and understand, without having experienced. They can think themselves into other people's minds, imagine themselves into other people's places. And many prefer not to exercise their imaginations at all. They choose to remain comfortably within the bounds of their own experience, never troubling to wonder how it would feel to have been born other than they are. They can close their minds and hearts to any suffering that does not touch them personally; they can refuse to know." - J.K. Rowling

"In order to survive, a plurality of true communities would require not egalitarianism and tolerance but knowledge, an understanding of the necessity of [individualism] local differences, and respect.

[Quote No.45953] Need Area: Friends > General
"Politeness has a bad name. We often assume it's about being 'fake' (which is meant to be bad) as opposed to 'really ourselves' (which is meant to be good). However, given what we're really like deep down, we should spare others too much exposure to our deeper selves. We need to learn manners, which aren't evil - they are the necessary internal rules of civilisation. Politeness is very linked to tolerance, the capacity to live alongside people whom one will never agree with, but at the same time, can't avoid." - Alain de Botton
From his book, 'Ten Virtues for the Modern Age'

[Quote No.45961] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Big 'paternalistic' governments are very concerned with controlling the masses and for that reason they become deeply involved in managing the media and education for 'the public good' but also for bad as the following suggests:] Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique [spin and propaganda along with false information and the disparaging of skepticism, independent research and freedom of speech] has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen." - Johann Gottlieb Fichte

[Quote No.46050] Need Area: Friends > General
"[It is not wise to envy others. Just as there are always people worse off than you, there will always be people who are doing better. But no-one really knows if another's situation is better than their own or if it will stay better for long, as the following story illustrates:] Legend has it that in 1923, a meeting of America's most powerful men took place at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago. Attending the meeting were the following nine financiers and power brokers: -the president of America’s largest steel company, -the president of America’s largest utility company, -the president of America’s largest gas company, -the president of the New York Stock Exchange, -the president of the Bank of International Settlements, -the nation’s greatest wheat speculator, -the nation’s greatest bear and speculator on Wall Street, -the head of the world’s greatest monopoly, -a member of President Harding’s cabinet. It was said to have been both a celebration of their success as well as an opportunity to plan their future exploits and dominance. These were the captains of their respective industries and some of the most successful businessmen of the era. But how did things turn out for these distinguished gentlemen? Within 25 years, all of these great men had met a horrific end to their careers or their lives: -The president of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, died a bankrupt man; -the president of the largest utility company, Samuel Insull, died penniless; -the president of the largest gas company, Howard Hobson, suffered a mental breakdown, ending up in an insane asylum; -the president of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, had just been released from prison; -the bank president, Leon Fraser, had taken his own life; -the wheat speculator, Arthur Cutten, died penniless; -the head of the world’s greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger the 'match king', also had taken his life; and -the member of President Harding’s cabinet, Albert Fall, had just been given a pardon from prison so that he could die at home. And as for -the Wall Street Bear, Jesse Lauriston Livermore, famous speculator in the stock and commodities markets, his end is perhaps the most tragic of all. A week after Thanksgiving in 1940, Jesse walked into the Sherry-Netherland Hotel in New York, had two drinks at the bar while scribbling something in his notebook, then proceeded to the cloak room where he sat on a stool and shot himself in the head. He was 62 and left behind $5 million, down from the $100 million fortune he had amassed just ten years earlier. And the note he had scribbled? 'My dear Nina: Can’t help it. Things have been bad with me. I am tired of fighting. Can’t carry on any longer. This is the only way out. I am unworthy of your love. I am a failure. I am truly sorry, but this is the only way out for me. Love Laurie.'" - Joshua M Brown

[Quote No.46079] Need Area: Friends > General
"By the democratic principles we espouse, government cannot have a right that citizens do not grant it. There are certain things that a person has no right to do. A person has no right to murder or rape another. Therefore, people cannot grant government authority to murder and rape. Similarly, no person has the right to forcibly take the property of one person in order to give it to another. Therefore, people cannot grant government authority to do the same thing. If I forcibly took property from one person, for any reason, most people would condemn it as theft, an immoral act. Theft or any other immoral act does not become moral because it is done by government acting on behalf of a consensus or majority vote just as murder or rape does not become a moral act simply because of a consensus or majority vote." - Walter E. Williams

[Quote No.46127] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Collectivist or Individualist?] Snowstorms or Snowflakes?... There are two basic prisms through which we can see, study, and prescribe for human society: individualism and collectivism. These worldviews are as different as night and day, and they create a great divide in the social sciences. That’s because the perspective from which you see the world will set your thinking down one intellectual path or another... I think of it as the difference between snowstorms and snowflakes. A collectivist sees humanity as a snowstorm, and that’s as up-close as he gets if he’s consistent. An individualist sees the storm, too, but is immediately drawn to the uniqueness of each snowflake that composes it. The distinction is fraught with profound implications. No two snowstorms are alike, but a far more amazing fact is that no two snowflakes are identical either — at least so far as painstaking research has indicated. Wilson Alwyn Bentley of Jericho, Vermont, one of the first known snowflake photographers, developed a process in 1885 for capturing them on black velvet before they melted. He snapped pictures of about 5,000 of them and never found two that were the same — nor has anyone else ever since. Scientists believe that changes in humidity, temperature, and other conditions extant as flakes form and fall make it highly unlikely that any one flake has ever been precisely duplicated... Contemplate this long enough and you may never see a snowstorm (or humanity) the same way again. Dr. Anne Bradley is vice president of economic initiatives at the Institute for Faith, Work and Economics. At a recent FEE seminar in Naples, Florida, she explained matters this way: 'When we look at a snowstorm from a distance, it looks like indistinguishable white dots peppering the sky, one blending into the next. When we get an up-close glimpse, we see how intricate, beautiful, and dissimilar each and every snowflake is. This is helpful when thinking about humans. From a distance, a large crowd of people might look the same, and it’s true that we possess many similar characteristics. But we know that a more focused inspection brings us nearer to the true nature of what we’re looking at. It reveals that each of us bears a unique set of skills, talents, ambitions, traits, and propensities unmatched anywhere on the planet.' This uniqueness is critical when we make policy decisions and offer prescriptions for society as a whole; for even though we each look the same in certain respects, we are actually so different, one to the next, that our sameness can only be a secondary consideration." - Lawrence W. Reed
Lawrence W. (“Larry”) Reed became president of FEE - the Foundation for Economic Education - in 2008. Prior to that, he was a founder and president for twenty years of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Midland, Michigan. He also taught Economics full-time and chaired the Department of Economics at Northwood University in Michigan from 1977 to 1984. Published in the article 'Snowstorms or Snowflakes?' February 25th, 2013. [http://www.fee.org/the_freeman/detail/snowstorms-or-snowflakes#ixzz2M3EuJarm ]

"Violent resistance against the power of the state is the last resort of the minority in its effort to break loose from the oppression of the majority. ...

(1881-1973) Economist and social philosopher. Source: 'Liberalism. The Classical Tradition' (1927), Fourth American Edition (Irvington-on-Hudson: Foundation for Economic Education, 1996), p. 59.

'Notes on Virginia', 1782.

So much emphasis has been placed upon the false that the significance of the true has been obscured and politics has come to convey the meaning of crafty and cunning selfishness, instead of candid and sincere service." - Calvin Coolidge
