„We have to remain vigilant. But I strongly believe our leadership and our security cannot depend on our outstanding military alone.“

—  Barack Obama 44th President of the United States of America 1961

2014, Sixth State of the Union Address (January 2014)
Contexto: For while our relationship with Afghanistan will change, one thing will not: our resolve that terrorists do not launch attacks against our country. [... ] We have to remain vigilant. But I strongly believe our leadership and our security cannot depend on our outstanding military alone. As commander in chief, I have used force when needed to protect the American people, and I will never hesitate to do so as long as I hold this office. But I will not send our troops into harm's way unless it is truly necessary, nor will I allow our sons and daughters to be mired in open-ended conflicts. We must fight the battles that need to be fought, not those that terrorists prefer from us -- large-scale deployments that drain our strength and may ultimately feed extremism. So even as we actively and aggressively pursue terrorist networks, through more targeted efforts and by building the capacity of our foreign partners, America must move off a permanent war footing. That's why I've imposed prudent limits on the use of drones, for we will not be safer if people abroad believe we strike within their countries without regard for the consequence.

„There is — has always been available to all — everybody … that does a negotiation on a film, an ""inclusion rider"" which means that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50 percent diversity in not only the casting, but also the crew.“

—  Frances McDormand American actress 1957

Explaining her closing comment on the importance of the two words of ""inclusion rider"" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGa0jC5KHNM, in her 90th Oscars backstage interview (4 March 2018) http://www.oscars.org/press/90th-oscars-backstage-interview-transcript-actress-leading-role<!-- video of interview available for download at the official Oscar site -->
Contexto: I just found out about this last week. There is — has always been available to all — everybody … that does a negotiation on a film, an ""inclusion rider"" which means that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50 percent diversity in not only the casting, but also the crew. And so, the fact that we — that I just learned that after 35 years of being in the film business … we're not going back. So the whole idea of women ""trending"" — no. No ""trending"". African Americans ""trending"" — no. No ""trending"". It changes now, and I think the inclusion rider will have something to do with that.

„We manipulate what is available on the surface of the world; we must also stand in awe before the mystery of the world.“

Ch. 5<!-- The sense of the ineffable, p. 88 -->
Who Is Man? (1965)
Contexto: The world presents itself in two ways to me. The world as a thing I own, the world as a mystery I face. What I own is a trifle, what I face is sublime. I am careful not to waste what I own; I must learn not to miss what I face.
We manipulate what is available on the surface of the world; we must also stand in awe before the mystery of the world. We objectify Being but we also are present at Being in wonder, in radical amazement.
All we have is a sense of awe and radical amazement in the face of a mystery that staggers our ability to sense it.
