Mr. Churchill you were given a mission.
I want to have been given your mission. I want your place in world events, the centrality of it. You were born in the cradle of a catapult!
You are wrong. I found my mission.
I disagree.
If you must.
Tell me: where is my mission? Where are my bunkers and trenches, my goddamn Gallipoli?

Dave Eggers

Religion has no business to formulate social laws and insist on the difference between beings, because its aim and end is to obliterate all such fictions and monstrosities.

Swami Vivekananda

We have found a strange footprint on the shores of the unknown. We have devised profound theories, one after another, to account for its origins. At last, we have succeeded in reconstructing the creature that made the footprint. And lo! It is our own.

Arthur Stanley Eddington

Suffered from alienation,
carried the weight on my own,
had to be so strong,
so I believed,
and now I know I've succeeded,
in finding the place I conceived.

Mariah Carey

It is true, gentlemen, I believed for years I had a mission, and when I speak of a mission you will understand me not as trying to play the role of insane before the grand jury so as to have a verdict of acquittal upon that ground. I believe that I have a mission, I believe I had a mission at this very time. What encourages me to speak to you with more confidence in all the imperfections of my English way of speaking, it is that I have yet and still that mission, and with the help of God, who is in this box with me, and He is on the side of my lawyers, even with the honorable court, the Crown and the jury, to help me, and to prove by the extraordinary help that there is a Providence to-day in my trial, as there was a Providence in the battles of the Saskatchewan.
