My 2020 Vision for India is to transform it into a developed nation. That cannot be abstract; it is a lifeline.
And although our bodies are bounded with skin, and we can differentiate between outside and inside, they cannot exist except in a certain kind of natural environment.
The religious idea of God cannot do full duty for the metaphysical infinity.
We cannot be more sensitive to pleasure without being more sensitive to pain.
Retaliation is related to nature and instinct, not to law. Law, by definition, cannot obey the same rules as nature.
Virtue cannot separate itself from reality without becoming a principle of evil.
Note, besides, that it is no more immoral to directly rob citizens than to slip indirect taxes into the price of goods that they cannot do without.
The role of the intellectual cannot be to excuse the violence of one side and condemn that of the other.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
