"Être conscient que demain existera et que je peux avoir une influence sur lui est le propre de l'homme."
- Albert Jacquard "It's specific to mankind to be aware that tomorrow will come  and we have the power to influence it."

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

- Viktor Frankl, Man's Search For Meaning.

"Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century: Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others; Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected; Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it; Refusing to set aside trivial preferences; Neglecting development and refinement of the mind; Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do."

- Cicero
