• «The human being is the most valuable, the best and the most desirable creation on the Earth. Everything was created for the sake and for the good of the human being. The service of the human being is the assignment of all creatures, the sun and the universe, the mountains and the plains, the seas and the rivers, the plants and the animals, the flowers and the nightingale, the air and the fire, i.e. of entire beautiful nature and its inexhaustible resources».

    Alisher Navoi
  • «A country’s prosperity is defined by the state of sciences and their flourishing. The consummate happiness of the human being lays in the cognition, since the human being has been endowed with an intellect. Only this understanding of happiness will bring the peace and welfare to the world. This is the very state of the human being’s mind when he/she cognizes the subject he/she has never known before; the superior merit of the human being is the care of the others, in particular, of the poor people».

  • «The people, being the highest value of the society, are bearing the huge value themselves, the powerful capacity, and this capacity implementation is the strongest driver of our society’s development and progress».

    Islam Karimov
  • «The human development paradigm is a holistic development model. It embraces every development issue, including economic growth, social investment, people's empowerment provision of basic needs and social safety nets, political and cultural freedom and all other aspects of people's lives».

    Mahbub ul Haq
  • «The human development concept is indeed a holistic development concept, embracing both the means, the productive capacity and the equity; both the economic and the social development; both the material wealth and the social services».
