If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

 
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
 

This the Chick-fil-A same-sex marriage controversy is the perfect American conundrum, because it's like: “Ah, you know, we should be moving forward as a country, but also— I want to eat garbage, as much as I can.”...
Now that you know this shit, don't eat that f**king sandwich anymore! It's that simple! You can't get it out of your mind, you know it, you know it, you'll always know it!... You can't stop knowing it.
And really— don't f**king eat Chick-fil-A! What are you doing?— it's garbage! Treat yourself better. Even if you're not going to treat other people who don't have the same rights as you better, treat yourself better than that.

 
Paul F. Tompkins
 

I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

 
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
 

So [things have] gradually and gradually [gotten] worse and worse until the country is absolutely on the rocks now, and the people are suffering. And this is our hope, because so many people are suffering, have been persecuted and have been told "Get into line, or else", and they know what 'or else' means.

 
Ian Smith
 

Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers. It tells people to go out and stick their noses in other people's business. I live by the golden rule: Treat others as you'd want them to treat you. The religious right wants to tell people how to live.
