“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

“Everyone must become their own person, however frightful that may be.”

“Conviction is a good motive, but a bad judge.”

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

“A society’s competitive advantage will come not from how well its schools teach the multiplication and periodic tables, but from how well they stimulate imagination and creativity.”

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

“Any society which does not insist upon respect for all life must necessarily decay.”

“There is nothing to fear but fear itself.”

“Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth”

“Don’t do anything that goes against your conscience, even if your country says so.”

“If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.”

“Intelligence is not the ability to store information, but to know where to find it.”

“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”

“We must be prepared to make the same heroic sacrifices for the cause of peace that we make ungrudgingly for the cause of war.”

“Once a day allow yourself the freedom to dream…”

“Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolised.”

“To dwell on the things that depress or anger us does not help in overcoming them. One must knock them down alone.”

“The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the political state, but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime, while the herd as such remains dull in thought and dull in feeling.”

“Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

“Just because you don’t believe in something doesn’t mean it isn’t true.”
