YOUR RIGHTS? (QUOTE)

“YOUR RIGHTS COME WITH RESPONSIBILITIES. GET TO KNOW YOUR RIGHTS, DEFEND THEM, ENFORCE THEM, AND APPLY THEM WHEN THEY ARE CHALLENGED. MORE IMPORTANTLY IS TO CONSIDER THAT MOST RIGHTS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED THROUGH GREAT SACRIFICE AND COST BY OTHERS. SO IF YOU WISH TO BE PROTECTED UNDER THESE RIGHTS, YOU ARE ALSO OBLIGATED TO DEFEND THOSE RIGHTS AS WELL.”

FRIENDSHIP (QUOTE)

     “WHEN YOU ARE RIDING IN A LIMOUSINE THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF FRIENDS WILLING TO COME FOR THE RIDE. SEE WHO IS WILLING TO COME FOR A RIDE WHEN YOU ARE IN A TAXI AND YOU WILL FIND WHO ARE ACTUALLY YOUR FRIEND.”

VICTORY AT A COST (QUOTE)

“A Pyrrhic victory is a victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat. It would never come to this if people would stand up for their beliefs, defend them, and protect them before they are gone and require those to engage a battle to recover them”

USEFUL INFORMATION BEING USELESS (QUOTE)

“USEFUL INFORMATION IS USLESS IF IT IS NOT ACKNOWLEDGED OR APPLIED. WHENEVER INFORMATION IS NOT USED OR ACKNOWLEDGED, THOSE WHO HAVE IT, WISH THEY DIDN’T”

WORD MEANING OR DEFINITION (QUOTE)

“A DICTIONARY GIVES A DEFINITION TO WORDS AND TRIES TO APPLY THE EXACT MEANING OF THE WORDS. WELL, I FEEL THAT A DICTIONARY CAN ONLY IMPLY AND SUGGEST THE MEANING…. IT IS ONLY A PERSON THAT IS ABLE TO GIVE MEANING TO A WORD”

STEPHEN JAMES

Being right or wrong quote

” If given the option of being right or wrong, I would instantly choose being wrong. In proving something incorrect brings closure to debate and question instead of infinite defense of holding on to anything considered correct. Any new idea, concept, theory that I think of I always try to prove it to be incorrect first, as that is usually the path requiring the least amount of work”
