„And this is a disease of the mind, the way I see it. Because in actual fact, men and women have much more in common than they are separated.“

—  Doris Lessing British novelist, poet, playwright, librettist, biographer and short story writer 1919 - 2013

Salon interview (1997)
Contexto: I'm always astounded at the way we automatically look at what divides and separates us. We never look at what people have in common. If you see it, black and white people, both sides look to see the differences, they don't look at what they have together. Men and women, and old and young, and so on. And this is a disease of the mind, the way I see it. Because in actual fact, men and women have much more in common than they are separated.

„There are times when men's passions are much more trustworthy than their principles“

—  Alan Watts, livro The Way of Zen

Fonte: The Way of Zen (1957), p. 29
Contexto: It was a basic Confucian principle that "it is man who makes truth great, not truth which makes man great." For this reason, "humanness" or "human-heartedness" (jen) was always felt to be superior to "righteousness" (i), since man himself is greater than any idea which he may invent. There are times when men's passions are much more trustworthy than their principles.
