Quotes about contrast


1. It's just that...I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is.
- Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

2. The system that enables the most people to earn the most success is free enterprise, by matching up people's skills, interests, and abilities. In contrast, redistribution simply spreads money around. Even worse, it attenuates the ability to earn success by perverting economic incentives.
- Arthur C. Brooks

3. The most effective leaders are actually better at guarding against danger when they acknowledge it that it exists.

- Simon Sinek
