diversity

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on arrogance, art, concern, corruption, diversity, existence, limitations, poetry, power, and richness

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstone of our judgement.

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on diversity, intuition, love, and mind

There are two types of mind . . . the mathematical, and what might be called the intuitive. The former arrives at its views slowly, but they are firm and rigid; the latter is endowed with greater flexibility and applies itself simultaneously to the diverse lovable parts of that which it loves.

A Quote by Barbara Tuchman on disillusionment, diversity, fighting, good, hope, mankind, men, nations, people, and war

When every autumn people said it could not last through the winter, and when every spring there was still no end in sight, only the hope that out of it all some good would accrue to mankind kept men and nations fighting. When at last it was over, the war had many diverse results and one dominant one transcending all others: disillusion.
