„The man writes with such genuine passion for the books he's discussing. With so many critics you feel they're writing so people will say they're good critics.“

—  William Empson, W. H. Auden, recorded in Alan Ansen (ed. Nicholas Jenkins) The Table Talk of W. H. Auden (London: Faber, 1991) p. 44.

„The reason why so few good books are written is, that so few people that can write know anything.“

—  Walter Bagehot British journalist, businessman, and essayist 1826 - 1877
Context: The reason why so few good books are written is, that so few people that can write know anything. In general an author has always lived in a room, has read books, has cultivated science, is acquainted with the style and sentiments of the best authors, but he is out of the way of employing his own eyes and ears. He has nothing to hear and nothing to see. His life is a vacuum. Shakespeare

„As long as people genuinely care for the people they're trying to help, they can actually do a lot of good.“

—  George Soros Hungarian-American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist 1930
Context: It's more difficult, you know, to bring about positive change than it is to make money. It's much easier to make money, because it's a much easier way to measure success — the bottom line. When it comes to social consequences, they've got all different people acting in different ways, very difficult to even have a proper criterion of success. So, it's a difficult task. Why not use an entrepreneurial, rather than a bureaucratic, approach. As long as people genuinely care for the people they're trying to help, they can actually do a lot of good.
