„Originality is a thing we constantly clamour for, and constantly quarrel with“

—  Thomas Carlyle Scottish philosopher, satirical writer, essayist, historian and teacher 1795 - 1881
Context: Originality is a thing we constantly clamour for, and constantly quarrel with; as if, observes our author himself, any originality but our own could be expected to content us! In fact all strange thing are apt, without fault of theirs, to estrange us at first view, and unhappily scarcely anything is perfectly plain, but what is also perfectly common. Richter.

„The South went to war on account of slavery.“

—  John S. Mosby Confederate Army officer 1833 - 1916
Context: The South went to war on account of slavery. South Carolina went to war, as she said in her secession proclamation, because slavery would not be secure under Lincoln. South Carolina ought to know what was the cause for her seceding. The truth is the modern Virginians departed from the teachings of the Father's.

„I've never really been into flags of any kind, cause flags can bring people together, but they always bring people together against other people,“

—  Michael Franti American rapper 1966
Context: I've never really been into flags of any kind, cause flags can bring people together, but they always bring people together against other people, and I don't really consider myself to be a patriot in the sense that I say, 'okay, this is my nation,' I consider myself to be a child of this whole planet.

„Free Trade is a great pacificator. We have had many quarrels, many causes of quarrels, during the last fifty years, but we have not had a single war with any first-class Power. Free Trade is slowly but surely cleaving a path through the dense and dark thicket of armaments to the sunny land of brotherhood amongst nations.“

„I read a lot of things about myself that aren't true … I've read that I've been with people I've never met.“

—  Scarlett Johansson American actress, model, and singer 1984
Context: I read a lot of things about myself that aren't true … I've read that I've been with people I've never met. It's nice not to have any attachment, but, likewise, it's nice to have a boyfriend. I'm open to that. But it's hard, when you're working constantly, to spend enough time with someone. As quoted in "Wilde about the girl" in The Sydney Morning Herald (13 June 2005) http://www.smh.com.au/news/Film/Wilde-about-the-girl/2005/06/12/1118514919678.html
