The Others

«As a leader... I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a con-sensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.»
«A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?»
«??when the whole group is together, each brining out all that is best, wisest, or funniest in all the others. Those are the golden sessions?when the whole world, and something beyond the world, opens itself to our minds as we talk; and no one has any claim on or any responsibility for another, but all are freedmen and equals as if we had first met an hour ago, while at the same time an Affection mellowed by the years enfolds us. Life- natural life- has no better gift to give.?»
«By alienation is meant a mode of experience in which the person experiences himself as an alien. He has become, one might say, estranged from himself. He does not experience himself as the center of his world, as the creator of his own acts, but his acts and their consequences have become his masters, whom he obeys, or whom he may even worship. The alienated person is out of touch with himself as he is out of touch with any other person. He, like the others, is experienced as things are experienced; with the senses and with common sense, but at the same time without being related to oneself and to the world outside positively.»
«All humanity is one undivided and indivisible family, and each one of us is responsible for the misdeeds of all the others. I cannot detach myself from the wickedest soul.»
«Courage is the greatest of all virtues, because if you haven't courage, you may not have an opportunity to use any of the others.»
Author: Samuel Johnson (Critic, Poet, Writer) | About: Courage | Keywords: may not, The Others, virtues
«A writer needs three things, experience, observation, and imagination, any two of which, at times any one of which, can supply the lack of the others»
