All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

It is the modest, not the presumptuous, inquirer who makes a real and safe progress in the discovery of divine truths.

Most writers regard truth as their most valuable possession and therefore are most economical in its use.

A desire presupposes the possibility of action to achieve it; action presupposes a goal which is worth achieving.

People developed the ability to speak out of a deep-seated need to complain.*

Lily Tomlin

*To be honest, I am not sure what to debate in the previous, but I couldn't resist a quotation about whining applied to a quotation by Ayn Rand.

Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it.

It used to be said in antislavery days that a people who would tacitly consent to the enslavement of 4,000,000 human beings were incapable of being just to each other, and I believe this same rule holds with regard to the injustice practiced by men towards women. So long as all men conspire to rob women of the citizen’s right to perfect equality in all the privileges and immunities of our so-called “free” government, we can not expect these same men to be capable of perfect justice to each other.

Susan B. Anthony

The weaker are always anxious for justice and equality. The strong pay no heed to either.

Your strength, that is so lofty and fierce and kind,
It might call up a new age, calling to mind
The queens that were imagined long ago,
Is but half yours

Joe, I've had new neighbors before but none of them were half the man you are. And since you're half a man already, that splits them into some kind of fraction I can't even measure.
