In my opinion, if 100% of the people were farming it would be ideal. If each person were given one quarter-acre, that is 1 1/4 acres to a family of five, that would be more than enough land to support the family for the whole year. If natural farming were practiced, a farmer would also have plenty of time for leisure and social activities within the village community. I think this is the most direct path toward making this country a happy, pleasant land.
Fair is irrelevant. This is the law – it has nothing to do with justice.
What’s fair ain’t necessarily right.
In a democracy, someone who fails to get elected to office can always console himself with the thought that there was something not quite fair about it.
Fairness as a principle doesn’t work if applied only in response to demand; it must be safeguarded and promoted even when its beneficiaries don’t realize what they are missing.
That’s not fair!”
“Life’s not fair, Kaspar. You know that. You had a slave for – how long?”
“Did you treat him ‘fairly’? No, of course not. You beat him when you were in a bad mood, because it made you feel better, and when you felt better you beat him some more.
Life’s not fair but not always to your disadvantage.
The hopeless hope is one of the early harbingers of spring, bespeaking an innocent belief that the world might right its wrongs and reverse its curses simply because the trees are coming into leaf.
Urging an organization to be inclusive is not an attack. It’s progress.
Maybe someday, if I succeed at something, I’ll stop saying, “It isn’t fair” about everything else.
