If he does not know who is at his side, he will have no friends.

Paulo Coelho

If we wash our hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless we side with the powerful - we don't remain neutral.

Banksy

It`s a mistake to think that in hard choices, one alternative really is better than the other, but we`re too stupid to know which, and since we don`t know which, we might as well take the least risky option. Even taking two alternatives side by side with full information, a choice can still be hard. Hard choices are hard not because of us or our ignorance; they`re hard because there is no best option.

Ruth Chang

Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love`s tragedies.

Oscar Wilde

Darwin`s idea of evolution by natural selection is, in my opinion, the single best idea that anybody has ever had, because in a single bold stroke it unites meaning with matter, two aspects of reality that appear to be worlds apart. On one side, we have the world of our minds and their meanings, our goals, our hopes, and our yearnings, and that most honored - and hackneyed - of all philosophical topics, the Meaning of Life. On the other side, we have galaxies ceaselessly wheeling, planets falling pointlessly into their orbits, lifeless chemical mechanisms doing what physics ordains, all without purpose or reason. Then Darwin comes along and shows us how the former arises from the latter, creating meaning as it goes, a bubble-up vision of the birth of importance to overthrow the trickle-down vision of tradition.

Daniel Dennett

Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.

Neil Gaiman

Abraham Lincoln

For those who seek perfection there can be no rest on this side of the grave.

Warhammer 40,000

Bad is not an absolute, but a relative term. Ask the robber who used the cash he stole to feed his infant; the rapist who was sexually abused as a child; the kidnapper who truly believed he was saving a life. And just because you break the law doesn`t mean you have intentionally crossed the line into evil. Sometimes the line creeps up on you, and before you know it, you`re standing on the other side.

Jodi Picoult

Truth is on the side of the oppressed.

Malcolm X

The whole point of growing up is learning to stay on the laughing side.

Lauren Oliver

When a man sees you are happy with him but you can be just as happy having nothing to do with him, that`s when he won`t want to leave your side. When you are happy, you are sexy.

Sherry Argov

Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.

Mark Twain
