But why do we have to put labels on things?

I love quotes that help change my world view. Take a look at these:

"I'm all about empowering and uplifting women. But why do we have to put labels on things?
 What like nouns? or like GIVENCHY?
 I haven't performed a deep homophone analysis on this key text yet, but am guessing its the former.
 Never mind all this stuff  you read about a "post truth" world.
 You're Republican, you're Democrat, you're bisexual, you're plus-size, you're poor, you're a criminal, you're a mother, you're a femnist. I'm a human being, and I have thoughts, feelings and opinions about a lot of different things. I don't need to be defined by those beliefs, just as much as I don't want to be set apart from or viewed as being against those who do define themselves by those beliefs"-Kim Kardashian(The Guardian)

Another good one:
"I've always been a seeker, I love to experiment and challenge myself. We're all creative beings, and we are never just one thing. We can and should express ourselves in a multitude of ways at different times in our lives"-Eska Mtungwazi (Evening Standard).

"I'm most interested in the film's capacity to shift public opinion about the man whose story it portrays. Attitude in the US tend to be polarised between those who view him as a traitor and those who see him as a hero. Stone's film can reach people with little prior knowledge. It humanises it's subject, makes complex arguements about the balance between privacy and surveillance immediately understandable.(The Guardian)

Why do we put labels on things?

 I'll find time to publish a true life story on this to be sold on Amazon. For now we're concentrating on the next big things. When you mix up with the wrong crowd, the experience is always different. However, you have to develop ear problem to ignore the uproar. When you question the status-quo, you're not expected to be liked. In the words of Harriet Green; the founder of Jardine of London: "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great"

"It has been a long journey but if you dream of something, have ambitions and are willing to work hard, then you can get your dreams"- Mo Farah.

"Keep moving forward. Hope for the best and expect the worst...we're living through a unique period of human history..., a siesmic shift in living and thinking is taking place due to the rapid and pervasive introduction of new technologies to daily life, which has changed the way we communicate,work, shop, socialise and do almost everything else. It delivers new freedoms..., the concept of absolute freedom is central to the ideology of the internet. Naivety and bad judgement about this enviroment can be evidenced every day."-John Murray(iNews)

"We want to encourage new ideas but we dismiss many of those who have them. I know i have been very lucky. I shall be publishing my first book on my time as a chair of the public accounts committee next month, just after my 72nd birthday. I am planning a second book on immigration. But I want my luck to become the norm, so that what I managed to achieve becomes available to others. If life is a marathon, then none of us should have to damage our lives today because we are made to think there is no tomorrow"- Margaret Hodge(theGuardian)

"I don't expect anyone to get everything right all the time. The important point being how we learn from those mistakes and the decisions and actions we take afterward. My personal life is obviously a private matter as it is for anyone else"- Antonio Horta- Osorio, the boss of Lloyds Bank.

Those at the bottom of the pyramid are yet to be plugged into the new economy.
