There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable.

“I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path.

I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not. I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies.”

— Jiddu Krishnamurti, 1929

    Actual poster issued by Senator Joe Mccarthy in 1950s, at height of the red scare. All Artists were suspect.
  • americanwitchery:

    I was told this was a poster issued by Senator Joe Mccarthy in 1950s, but then someone corrected that and said it was really a quote from Queen Victoria. Either way it’s priceless!
  • Emily Leone (via capeconsults.org):

    Hey just letting you know that this is a quote from the 1950′s, way after Queen Victoria. Senator McCarthy had them posted for his anti-communist agenda. Many artists were investigated by the House of Un-American Activities Committee. McCarthy went for blood and this era of anti-communism has even been referred to as a “witch hunt.”

    See an original poster here:

    It’s so easy to get false information on the internet, especially with quotes. I figured I’d just get the truth out there
  • Arnold Aprill (via capeconsults.org):

    This quote has gone viral on the internet, with many mis-attributions as to the author and the context. The particular version appearing on this blog is available on this website:

    Here’s a good discussion of this “meme”:

    “We’re seeing this poster all over the internet, attributed as an ‘actual poster issued by Senator Joseph McCarthy during the mid-1950s, at the height of the Red Scare.’ Just yesterday the venerable non-profit Artists Space, the Occupy Wall Street Arts & Labor working group, and a few ArtInfo editors shared it on Facebook. Thing is, the poster is a total fabrication—it was never a McCarthy-era poster. It’s a Tumblr-era meme.

    The quotation itself has previously circulated as a quote by Queen Victoria, but that’s not right either. It’s actually an out-of-context paraphrase of a letter King Leopold of Belgium wrote to Queen Victoria in 1845. You want to believe it’s a McCarthy poster though, and so did many thousands on Facebook and Tumblr…As the artist Jack Goldstein once wrote, ‘Dangerous objects are glamorous places to be.’”

“Only an honorable man treats women with honor and integrity, and only a vile and dishonorable man humiliates and degrades women.”

Although the source attributes the above quote to Islam's Prophet Muhammad (with a question mark), is this an authentic remark of Muhammad? I have some suspicion about it.
