“Compassion is an unstable emotion. It needs to be translated into action, or it withers.
The question of what to do with the feelings that have been aroused,
the knowledge that has been communicated. If one feels
that there is nothing ‘we’ can do — but who is that ‘we’? —
and nothing ‘they’ can do either — and who are ‘they’ —
then one starts to get bored, cynical, apathetic.”

― from Regarding the Pain of Others by Susan Sontag

“In our finest hours…the soul of the country manifests itself in an
inclination to open our arms rather than to clench our fists; to look
out rather than to turn inward; to accept rather than to reject. In so
doing, America has grown ever stronger, confident that the choice of
light over dark is the means by which we pursue progress.”
 
― Jon Meacham, The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels

“And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath
the wheels of routine—and before we know it our lives are
gone. What does a man need—really need? A few pounds
of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in—
and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of
accomplishment. That’s all—in the material sense, and we know it.”

— Sterling Hayden

“I hold a beast, an angel, and a madman in me,
and my enquiry is as to their working,
and my problem is their subjugation and victory,
down throw and upheaval,
and my effort is their self-expression.”

“If you cannot trust yourself,
you cannot even trust your mistrust of yourself –
so that without this underlying trust in the whole system
of nature you are simply paralyzed.”

“Body of an Old Man Sitting Under the Stars” — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“There was only our bodies, born to live and die on terms decided by the bodies
that had lived and died before us. If he could be said to have located
a philosophical niche for himself, that was it – he’d come upon it early and intuitively,
and however elemental, that was the whole of it.”

— from Everyman by Philip Roth
