Always…

Always recognise that human individuals are ends, and do not use them as means to your end.

– Immanuel Kant

The dogmas…

The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.

– Abraham Lincoln
