I think there is a danger with young people of being dependent in the sense that they don't acquire any identity or self-image of themselves as thinkers. They just go and look it up or they just chat with someone. In other words, relying on something rather than saying: "Okay, I've got the information, how do I create value from it?"

Bodyand soul,Black America reveals the extreme questions of contemporary life, questions of freedom and Identity: How can I be who I am?june jordan
...there is nothing like a 'private home' online, because we don't sleep there, and we don't need toilets or showers there. So a lot of the privacy issues in the real world -- like what the police can seize without a warrant, or whether you have to admit your Identity when asked -- don't really play online. Online privacy is seldom about private property, but about access to information.stowe boyd
Indeed it may be only by risking the incoherence of Identity that connection is possible.judith butler
A big advantage of the serial-number approach to Identity is that things stay the same even as they change.brian hayes
One's worth and self-regard ought to come from individual competitive performance, not from group Identity. Pride based on clan or tribal connections is atavistic. It appeals to people who fear they cannot succeed as individuals, and by diverting their energies it all but ensures they will not succeed as individuals.William A. Henry III
It was measured that the splinters of the Armenian nation that had managed to miraculously escape the Genocide would not be able to recover from the blow, would disappear in the whirlpools on five continents, lose their national Identity, and aptitude to be a political factor. But we, as a nation and as a state, were able to reappear at the international arena to affirm that we continue our eternal journey and that we are determined not to allow for such a crime to ever happen again.serzh sargsyan
A man's ethnic Identity has more to do with a personal awareness than with geography.william saroyan
By practice and conviction formed, With ancient stubbornness ingrained, Although her body clung and swarmed, My own Identity remained.yvor winters
...[B]eing part of The L Word made me realize how much more television can be that what I had experienced in my lifetime in terms of being able to be of service to people. I had so many fans come up to me who were really deeply appreciative of the show and what it had meant for them and their own sense of Identity and their own sense of inclusion in our society and in our culture.jennifer beals
To speak from a particular place and time is not provincialism but part of a writer’s Identity.dana gioia
Liberals tend to regard being subjects of the Queen as an insult to their dignity. But at least the archaic structures by which we are ruled do not force us to define ourselves by blood, soil or faith, and we are protected from the poisonous politics of Identity.john n. gray
Joy, rather than happiness, is the goal of life, for joy is the emotion which accompanies our fulfilling our natures as human beings. It is based on the experience of one's Identity as a being of worth and dignity, who is able to affirm his being, if need be, against all other beings and the whole inorganic world.rollo may
Pornography and violence are by-products of societies in which private Identity has been...destroyed by sudden environmental change.Marshall McLuhan
I use colors that have already been experienced through the light of day and through the state of mind of the total man. In other words, my colors are not colors that are laboratory tools which are isolated from all accidentals or impurities so that they have a specified Identity or purity.mark rothko
Karl Rove told me about Valerie Plame's Identity on July 11, 2003. I called him because Ambassador Wilson was in the news that week. I didn't know Ambassador Wilson even had a wife until I talked to Karl Rove, and he said that she worked at the Agency and worked on WMD.karl rove
You need the "is of Identity" to describe conspiracy theories. Korzybski would say that proves that illusions, delusions, and "mental" illnesses require the "is" to perpetuate them. (He often said, "Isness is an illness.") Korzybski also popularized the idea that most sentences, especially the sentences that people quarrel over or even go to war over, do not rank as propositions in the logical sense, but belong to the category that Bertrand Russell called propositional functions. They do not have one meaning , as a proposition in logic should have; they have several meanings, like an algebraic function.robert anton wilson
And when languages are lost most of the knowledge that went with them gets lost. People do care about Identity as they want to be different. Nowadays we want access to everything but we don't want to be thought of as no more than people on the other side of the world .
Such dialectical relation of opposites in and by the proposition is rendered possible by the recognition of the subject as an historical agent whose Identity constitutes itself in and against its historical practice, in and against its social reality. The discourse develops and states the conflict between the thing and its function, and this conflict finds linguistic expression in sentences which join contradictory predicates in a logical unit conceptual counterpart of the objective reality. In contrast to all Orwellian language, the contradiction is demonstrated, made explicit, explained, and denounced.herbert marcuse
We are not related to the northern Greeks who produced leaders like Philip and Alexander the Great. We are Slavs and our language is closely related to Bulgarian. There is some confusion about our Identity.Gyordan Veselinov
The history of the construction of a Macedonian national Identity does not begin with Alexander the Great in the fourth century B.C. or with Saints Cyril and Methodius in the ninth century A.D. as Macedonian nationalist historians often claim.
Zionism proceeds from the assumption that the Jews are still a people or nation, many of whom cannot or will not assimilate themselves to other peoples, and wish to retain their Identity as a national community.
One of Parmenides' merits is to have been the first philosopher who strove to handle general concepts like "being", "not-being", "knowing", " unity ", "Identity", in their systematic connection.
Too many women throw themselves into romance because they're afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their Identity. I won't do that.
I don't need to worry about Identity theft because no one wants to be me.
Pornography and violence are by-products of societies in which private Identity has been ... destroyed by sudden environmental change.
A lot of kids are bullied because of their sexual Identity or expression. It's often the effeminate boys and the masculine girls, the ones who violate gender norms and expectations, who get bullied.
From the equality of rights springs Identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own.
"[There are] cases of straight queerness, and of other forms of queerness that might not be contained within existing categories or have reference to only one established category...new queer spaces open up (or are revealed) whenever someone moves away from using only one specific sexual Identity category--gay, lesbian, bisexual, or straight--to understand and to describe mass culture, and recognizes that texts and people's responses to them are more sexually transmutable than any one category could signify--excepting, perhaps, that of 'queer.'"
Indeed, in the social jungle of human existence, there is no feeling of being alive without a sense of Identity .
