For us, universal values such as justice, morality and peace cannot be disputed and it is for this reason that we pursue the restoration of historical truth.
Robert Kocharian restoration quote

The reactance formulation, because of its articulation in terms of specific freedoms. . . provides insights into control motivation. . . Reactance theory conceives a modest form of control motivation. Reactance is directed toward the restoration of threatened or lost freedoms, and it is therefore (a) specific rather than general, and (b) reactive rather than proactive.
— Jack W. Brehm

In in deliverance, in ultimate restoration, is absent. The pain is unrelenting, and what makes the condition intolerable is the foreknowledge that no rememdy will come, not in a day, an hour, a month, or a minute. It is hopelessness even more than pain that crushes the soul.
— William Styron

Men who are occupied in the restoration of health to other men, by the joint exertion of skill and humanity, are above all the great of the earth. They even partake of divinity, since to preserve and renew is almost as noble as to create.
— Voltaire
