These are some quotes I try to live by.

"It is not safe to speak! And it never will be. But the thing you have to keep in mind is: it's even less safe not to speak!" - Jordan Peterson

"A University isn't a home. That's not what it is. It's a place to be confronted by, often, horrible ideas. You want to learn about history? You think that's going to be safe? Do you know what human history is like? It's an endless BLOODBATH with a certain amount of hopeful progress underlying it. It's a HORROR SHOW. And great literature is like that. And biology is TERRIFYING. And physics is TERRIFYING. You want to be safe? STAY HOME with your mum." - Jordan Peterson

"At what point, then, should one resist? When one's belt is taken away? When one is ordered to face into a corner? When one crosses the threshold of one's home? An arrest consists of a series of incidental irrelevancies, of a multitude of things that do not matter, and there seems no point in arguing about one of them individually" - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

"Frustratingly, we are all unreliable narrators, and as time progresses, we tend to reframe our entire lives; so much so that details as mundane as a soldier boy's eyes, once so clear and understandable, become as formless and shifting as the icy depths of the ocean. " - Me (Is it bad form to quote myself? Well, it's not called shameless self-promotion for nothing!)
