„No matter how honest scientists think they are, they are still influenced by various unconscious assumptions that prevent them from attaining true objectivity.“

—  Colin Wilson, Mysteries (1978), Context: No matter how honest scientists think they are, they are still influenced by various unconscious assumptions that prevent them from attaining true objectivity. Expressed in a sentence, Fort's principle goes something like this: People with a psychological need to believe in marvels are no more prejudiced and gullible than people with a psychological need not to believe in marvels. p. 125

„Until you realise the true Way, whether in Buddhism or in common sense, you may think that things are correct and in order. However, if we look at things objectively, from the viewpoint of laws of the world, we see various doctrines departing from the true Way.“

—  Miyamoto Musashi Japanese martial artist, writer, artist 1584 - 1645
Go Rin No Sho (1645), The Book No-Thing-ness, Context: Until you realise the true Way, whether in Buddhism or in common sense, you may think that things are correct and in order. However, if we look at things objectively, from the viewpoint of laws of the world, we see various doctrines departing from the true Way. Know well this spirit, and with forthrightness as the foundation and the true spirit as the Way. Enact strategy broadly, correctly and openly. Then you will come to think of things in a wide sense and, taking the void as the Way, you will see the Way as void. In the void is virtue, and no evil. Wisdom has existence, principle has existence, the Way has existence, spirit is nothingness.

Citát „Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.“
Ernest Hemingway Foto

„Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.“

—  Ernest Hemingway, Ernest Hemingway: A Literary Reference
Introduction to Treasury of the Free World (1946), Context: An aggressive war is the great crime against everything good in the world. A defensive war, which must necessarily turn to aggressive at the earliest moment, is the necessary great counter-crime. But never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime. Ask the infantry and ask the dead.
