  2. Niccollo Machavelli, The Prince.:

    So as a prince is forced to know how to act like a beast, he must learn from the fox and the lion; becouse the lion is defenceless against traps and the fox is defenceless against wolves. Therefore one must be a fox in order to recognise traps and lion to frighten off wolves.

  3. Bertrand Russell:

    The practical objection to Puritanism, as to every form of fanaticism, is that it singles out certain evils as so much worse than others that they must be suppressed at all costs. The fanatic fails to recognise that the suppression of a real evil, if carried out too drastically, produces other evils which are even greater.

  4. Nisha Varia:

    The Indonesian armed forces should recognise that harmful and humiliating 'virginity tests' on women recruits do nothing to strengthen national security, president Joko Widodo should set the military straight and immediately abolish the requirement and prevent all military hospitals from administering it.
