“Follow the voice of your heart, even if it leads you off the path of timid souls. Do not become hard and embittered, even if life tortures you at times. There is only one thing that counts: to live one’s life well and happily… ”

~Wilhelm Reich, 24 March 1897 – 3 November 1957

“I think that one of our most important tasks is to convince others that there’s nothing to fear in difference; that difference, in fact, is one of the healthiest and most invigorating of human characteristics without which life would become meaningless.  Here lies the power of the liberal way:  not in making the whole world Unitarian, but in helping ourselves and others to see some of the possibilities inherent in viewpoints other than one’s own; in encouraging the free interchange of ideas; in welcoming fresh approaches to the problems of life; in urging the fullest, most vigorous use of critical self-examination.”

~Adlai Stevenson, 1900 – 1965

“Rebellion is when you look society in the face and say I understand who you want me to be, but I’m going to show you who I actually am.”

“There’s never been a true war that wasn’t fought between two sets of people who were certain they were in the right.  The really dangerous people believe they are doing whatever they are doing solely and only because it is without question the right thing to do.  And that is what makes them dangerous.”

~Odin, as portrayed in American Gods (2001) by Neil Gaiman, Ch. 9
