The Indian teaching, through its clouds of legends, has yet a simple and grand religion, like a queenly countenance seen through a rich veil. It teaches to speak truth, love others, and to dispose trifles. The East is grand - and makes Europe appear the land of trifles. …all is soul and the soul is Vishnu.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
First they came for the communists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the trade-unionists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade-unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Martin Niemöller (1892 - 1984)
I like “untold” history stories. Cracked has quite a few good ones.
