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?"
The appearence of Sheikh Mujib was the biggest event in the national history of Bangladesh. His burial did not take place through his death. More pragmatic, efficient, capable and dyanmic political personalities than Sheikh Mujibur Rahman might have emerged or may emerge, but it will be very difficult to find someone who has contributed more to the independence movement of Bangladesh and the shaping of its national Identity.sheikh mujibur rahman
Daily life is a comprimised blend of posturing for the sake of role-playing and of varying degrees of self-revelation. Under stressful conditions even the "true" self cannot be precisely defined, as Erving Goffman observes. ...Little wonder that the Identity crisis is a major source of modern neuroticism , and that the urban middle class aches for a return to a simpler existence.e. o. wilson
The myth of Canada, its hidden story, is of a contemplative country, a place of inwardness, where people can question the idea of nationhood and ponder what values we wish to see expressed and achieved, and what solitudes of Identity and reverie we wish to preserve.b. w. powe
The sense of unhappiness is so much easier to convey than that of happiness. In misery we seem aware of our own existence, even though it may be in the form of a monstrous egotism: this pain of mine is individual, this nerve that winces belong to me and to no other. But happiness annihilates us: we lose our Identity.graham greene
We do not demand for our own people any more than the basic human rights which we would extend to every nation, people and tribe on this planet: the right to preserve their own territory, traditions and ethnic Identity. The right to preserve, in other words, the things which, by marking their differences from the mass of humanity, make them human and turn their society from an ant heap into a community.nicholas john griffin
Pornography and violence are by-products of societies in which private Identity has been...destroyed by sudden environmental change.Marshall McLuhan
Violence, whether spiritual or physical, is a quest for Identity and the meaningful. The less Identity, the more violence.Marshall McLuhan
Young people, who are still uncertain of their Identity, often try on a succession of masks in the hope of finding the one which suits them the one, in fact, which is not a mask.
Dear Kashubian brothers and sisters! Cherish the values and the heritage that define your Identity.
I also would like to encourage you; encourage you to continue to preserve your Identity while fostering family ties, deepening the knowledge of your language and striving to pass down your rich Kashubian tradition to the younger generation.
An Identity based in the one-way love of God does not take into account public opinion or, thankfully, even personal opinion.
Indeed, in the social jungle of human existence, there is no feeling of being alive without a sense of Identity .
Body and 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 can be no more thrilling idea of intimacy that connecting with someone through the agency of the written word. Here we meet, on the page, naked and unadorned: shorn of class, race, gender, sexual Identity, age and nationality. The reader I seek is a tautology, for he/she is simply…the person who wants to read what I have written.will self
What is important to me in my work is the Identity that is hidden behind so-called reality. I search for a bridge from the given present tot the invisible, rather as a famous cabalist once said, ‘If you wish to grasp the invisible, penetrate as deeply as possible into the visible’.max beckmann
The troubles of the 20th century are not unlike those of adolescence -- rapid growth beyond the ability of organizations to manage, uncontrollable emotion, and a desperate search for Identity. Out of adolescence, however, comes maturity in which physical growth with all its attendant difficulties comes to an end, but in which growth continues in knowledge, in spirit, in community, and in love; it is to this that we look forward as a human race. This goal, once seen with our eyes, will draw our faltering feet toward it.kenneth boulding
The concept of absolute, hence (or whence) springs, in the moral field, the moral laws or norms, represent, in the field of knowledge, the principle of Identity, which is the fundamental law of the thought; norms of logic springs from it, that govern the thought (or mind) in the field of science." ("Le concept de l'absolu, d'où découlent, dans le domaine moral, les lois ou normes morales, constitue, le principe d'identité, qui est la loi fondamentale de la pensée; il en découle les normes logiques qui régissent la pensée dans le domaine de la science.")african spir
Human nature, human nature acts as it acts when it is identified when there is an Identity but it is not human nature that has anything to do with that it is that anybody is there where they are, it is that that has to do with Identity, with government and propaganda with history with individualism and with communism but it has nothing nothing to do with the human mind ... because the human mind writes what there is and what has Identity go to do with that ... nothing at all.Gertrude Stein
A secure pluralistic society requires communities that are educated and confident both in the Identity and depth of their own traditions and in those of their neighbours.
We are not stating by accident that Josip Broz Tito is Jesus Christ for Macedonia, a father and a mother for Macedonia. Because we have, in that time, after NOB, for the first time created a Macedonian alphabet, a Macedonian television, a Macedonian state, a language, a passport, an Identity card, a university for the first time, a Macedonian academy for the first time. We, communists, have created the Macedonian Orthodox church.
"You," your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal Identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules.
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.
Attention spans get very weak at the speed of light, and that goes along with a very week Identity.
And Identity is funny being yourself is funny as you are never yourself to yourself except as you remember yourself and then of course you do not believe yourself.
