“Once the violence and readiness to kill that lies beneath the surface of human nature has been awakened and turned against other humans, and even made into a duty, it is a simple matter to change the target.” - Sabastian Haffner

“"Life can only be lived dangerously—there is no other way to live it. It is only through danger that life attains to maturity, growth.

And even a single moment of that intensity is more gratifying than the whole eternity of mediocre living." - Osho
