Empathy...can you hear me?

Not all are "Shylock" /Anti-Semitic and some with their "Behirah Chofshit" (Freedom of choice) refuse to take part in some traditions that just lead to greed "...also known as avarice... is the inordinate desire to possess ...goods, or objects of abstract value with the intention to keep it for one's self... in all of its forms: greed for life, for money, for love... knowledge ..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greed



"...Hannah, can you hear me?
Wherever you are, look up Hannah!
The clouds are lifting! The sun is breaking through!
We are coming out of the darkness into the light! We are coming into a new world; a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed, and brutality.
Look up, Hannah! The soul of man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow!
Into the light of hope, into the future!
The glorious future, that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up, Hannah. Look up!" 
The great dictator

Omen...

"O sábio não vai todo à sepultura,
Não morre inteiro o justo, o virtuoso,
Na memória dos homens brilha e dura,
Enquanto o néscio, o inútil, o ocioso
Vão, ignoradas vítimas da Morte,
Sumir-se no sepulcro tenebroso." 
...
"Vai-te, fera cruel, vai-te, inimiga,
horror do mundo, escândalo da gente,
que um férreo peito, uma alma que não sente,
não merece a paixão que me afadiga.

O Céu te falte, a Terra te persiga,
negras fúrias o Inferno te apresente,
e da baça tristeza o voraz dente
morda o vil coração que amor não liga.

Disfarçados, mortíferos venenos,
entre licor suave em áurea taça,
mão vingativa te prepare ao menos;

e seja, seja tal a tua desgraça,
que ainda por mais leves, mais pequenos,
os meus tormentos invejar te faça
.
"

A human being...

"And I directed myself to myself and to myself I said: You, who are you? I responded: A human being..." Augustine

 
"...bloody effort to affirm the dignity of man in defiance of the things that deny is existence...instead of killing and dying in order to produce the being that we are not, we have to live and let live in order to create what we are..."
The fastidious assassins, Camus

"He who has a why to live can bear almost anything." Nietzsche

 "An injustice to one is a threat made to all." Montesquieu.
 

 "Everything had a beginning and an end, that it could not be otherwise. But shall we live to see the end?...We must fight for that...fight with all our might and not downhearted...I want very much to live and see the defeat of our executioners which is why I am doing my utmost and will continue to do everything in my power for us to survive, for us to escape their clutches! If we do not succeed, that will be too bad. A person only dies once, and though I would regret losing my life, I do not fear death."
Hope is the last to die - Halina Birenbaum
