We have corporate CEOs who raise their pay 20 percent or more in years when they lay off thousands of people. It's obscene.
We were not destined to be empty raincoats, nameless numbers on a payroll... If that is to be its price, economic progress is an empty promise.


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
