No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate & if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it’s opposite.
A person with innate talents will bring them into use, somehow or other, sooner or later – nothing on earth will stop him but death itself – for he is the talent & the talent is him, inseparable.

“We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, ‘I know this is not politically correct, but…’ in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug”
“Civilised behaviour, I believe, is more often measured by what a person restrains himself from doing than by what he does.”
