I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could. -Mahatma Gandhi

Doubt can motivate you, so don’t be afraid of it. Confidence and doubt are at two ends of the scale, and you need both. They balance each other out. -Barbara Streisand 

One should see the world, and see (herself or) himself as a scale with an equal balance of good and evil. When (s)he does one good deed the scale is tipped to the good – (s)he and the world is saved. When (s)he does one evil deed the scale is tipped to the bad – (s)he and the world is destroyed. -Maimonides 

The medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium – that is, of any extension of ourselves – result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology. -Marshall McLuhan
