QUOTA of QUOTES
“I don’t agree with (Republican presidential candidate) Vivek Ramaswamy on much, but one thing is certain: all political parties in America should welcome individuals of all faiths, including Hindus.”— Tweet from Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, responding to a Christian televangelist’s urging of his followers not to vote for Ramaswamy because he would “put all his strange gods up” in the White House.
“I am not a politician, and I do not want to be a politician… I’m a regular person who knows the situations in regular people’s lives.”—Rejani Raveendran, a 40-year-old college student who announced that she’s running for a Senate seat from Wisconsin as a Republican. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)
“We would give them as much as they need to keep themselves reasonably happy, not euphoric. They shouldn’t be encouraged to compare themselves with all people around them. They would have only misery.”—R. Thyagarajan, industrialist and founder of Chennai-based Shriram Group, on his philosophy of paying employees less than their peers. (Bloomberg)
“I will not rest until the last culprit is held to account. Every day, my two daughters inspire me to keep fighting.”— Sunil Jaglan, 41, an activist in Haryana who has fought against female feticide, partly through his “Selfie with Daughter” foundation and campaign. (The New York Times)
