"Democracy is not merely a form of government
but an integrated social and ideological system based on respect for the individual"
Aung San Suu Kyi
"The intellectual should constantly disturb, should bear witness to the misery of the world, should be provocative by being independent, should rebel against all hidden and open pressures and manipulations, should be the chief doubter of systems . . and for this reason, an intellectual cannot fit into any role that might be assigned to him . . and essentially doesn't belong anywhere: he stands out as an irritant wherever he is."
