„Have we raised ourselves up to that outlook opposed to the world, and have we tried to destroy the esteem and love for it in all hearts?“

—  Louis Tronson French Roman Catholic priest 1622 - 1700

Nous sommes-nous élevés dans cette vue contre lui, et avons-nous tâché d'en détruire l'estime et l'amour dans tous les cœurs?

„What you have broken is the image of reverence of India
Do you have this idea, you who have broken the dome of the mosque
Not the building but our hearts have been broken
Your wickedness is limitless“

—  Jagan Nath Azad Indian writer (1918-2004) 1918 - 2004

Quoted in "Two Urdu Poems Reflect How Babri Masjid Demolition Was an Attack on India as a Whole" https://thewire.in/books/babri-masjid-demolition-urdu-poetry-jagan-nath-azad, The Wire, 6 December, 2017.
Originale: Ye tune Hind ki hurmat ke aaine ko toda hai
Khabar bhi hai tujhe Masjid ka gumbad todne wale
Humare dil ko toda hai imaarat ko nahi toda
Khabaasat ki bhi had hoti hai had todne wale

„All who have meant good work with their whole hearts, have done good work, although they may die before they have the time to sign it. Every heart that has beat strong and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind.“

—  Robert Louis Stevenson Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer 1850 - 1894

Aes Triplex (1878)
Contesto: All who have meant good work with their whole hearts, have done good work, although they may die before they have the time to sign it. Every heart that has beat strong and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind. And even if death catch people, like an open pitfall, and in mid-career, laying out vast projects, and planning monstrous foundations, flushed with hope, and their mouths full of boastful language, they should be at once tripped up and silenced: is there not something brave and spirited in such a termination? and does not life go down with a better grace, foaming in full body over a precipice, than miserably straggling to an end in sandy deltas?

„Too many hearts have been broken
Failing to trust what they feel.
But trust isn't something that's spoken
And love's never wrong when it's real.“

„You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.“

—  Winston S. Churchill Prime Minister of the United Kingdom 1874 - 1965

Often attributed to Churchill, this thought was originally expressed by the French author Victor Hugo in Villemain (1845), as follows: You have enemies? Why, it is the story of every man who has done a great deed or created a new idea. It is the cloud which thunders around everything that shines. Fame must have enemies, as light must have gnats. Do not bother yourself about it; disdain. Keep your mind serene as you keep your life clear.
Villemain is a brief segment taken from Hugo's Choses Vues (Things Seen), a running journal Hugo kept of events he witnessed. The original French versions of these journals were published after Hugo's death.

„You know, that's so much a part of life, being able to embrace the broken heart, not just cast it off as having no meaning or trying to get rid of it. I think in the book gives a very good journey through the way I handled things that were desperately frightening for me.“

—  Carly Simon American singer-songwriter, musician and author 1945
