“Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge;
it requires no accountability, no understanding.
The highest form of knowledge,
according to George Eliot,
is empathy,
for it requires us to suspend our egos
and live in another’s world.
It requires profound,
purpose?larger?than?the?self
kind of understanding.”

“Nothing can be more vulgar or more untrue
than the ignorant assertion that the world
owes its progress of knowledge
of any particular race.
The whole world is interdependent
and a constant stream of thought
has throughout ages
enriched the common heritage of mankind.
It is the realiza
tion of this mutual interdependence
that has kept the mighty fabric bound together
and ensured the continuity
of permanence of civilization.”

~ Jagadish Chandra Bose more
