One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news. Many people, giving some of their time, can make history

A Quote by Ken Wilbur on theory, everything, physics, economics, history, dynamics, wars, and poetry

What would it mean if there were a theory that explained everything? And just what does "everything" actually mean, anyway? Would this new theory in physics explain, say the meaning of human poetry? Or how economics work? Or the stages of psychosexual development? Can this new physics explain the currents of ecosystems, or the dynamics of history, or why human wars are so terribly common?

A Quote by Bertolt Brecht on teamwork, help, history, labour, and working class

"Young Alexander conquered India.
He alone?
Caesar beat the Gauls. Was there not even a cook in his army?
Philip of Spain wept as his fleet was sunk and destroyed. Were there no other tears?
Frederick the Great triumphed in the Seven Years War. Who
Triumphed with him?"

Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956)

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on media, stories, history, and bad news

We're not going to waste our valuable space or your precious energy by giving equal time to stories of tragedy, failure, and tumult.  They get far more that their fair share of attention everywhere else.  Future historians might even conclude that our age suffered from a collective obsessive-compulsive disorder: the pathological need to repetitively seek out reasons for how bad life is.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on age, prejudiced, truth, condemn, history, and learns

Naturally, every age thinks that all ages before it were prejudiced, and today we think this more than ever and are just as wrong as all previous ages that thought so. How often have we not seen the truth condemned! It is sad but unfortunately true that man learns nothing from history.

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, history, and principles

"Playing" the resources of characterology for the sake of clarification and insight into the structures of actual existence is many times more daunting than playing a piano; it requires the thinking of chords of thoughts, not just isolated simplisms or abstracta; it demands the shaping or encompassing of morphological modes of intelligence that can comprehend gestalten, syndromes, historical and civilizational patterns in which it is not the particulars but their interactive significance (as an ensemble of actualities or principles) that is vital.

A Quote by Samir Amin on capitalism, colonization, revolution, and history

The first revolution of the Western Hemisphere was that of the slaves of Saint Domingue (present-day Haiti) at the end of the eighteenth century, followed more than a century later by the Mexican revolution of the decade of 1910, and fifty years after that by the Cuban revolution. And if I do not cite here either the famous "American revolution" or that of the Spanish colonies that soon followed, it is because those only transferred the power of decision from the metropolis to the colonists so that they could go on doing the same thing, pursue the same project with even greater brutality, but without having to share the profits with the "mother country."
