A.J. Jacobs Quotes About Rent

Browse 5 famous quotes of A.J. Jacobs about Rent.

"I've started to look at life differently. When you're thanking God for every little you - every meal, every time you wake up, every time you take a sip of water - you can't help but be more thankful for life itself, for the unlikely and miraculous fact that you exist at all." ~ A.J. Jacobs
"In Deuteronomy 5:9 the Bible says "I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me." I used to find this an appallling sentence...But I've come to appreciate it. The trick is, you have to see the passage as a warning that your moral failings will affect your kids' ability to make the right choices. If you beat your son, he'll be more likely to beat his son. If you get angry at cantaloupe-related mishaps, your son will too. What better deterrent could there be to bad behavior?" ~ A.J. Jacobs
"It's a different way of looking at the world. Your life isn't about rights. It's about responsibilities."--Mr Bill Berkowitz" ~ A.J. Jacobs
"If ever I was going to listen to a string of swearwords sitting next to a ninety-four-year-old, I'm glad that ninety-four-year-old was my grandfather. Not that he swears a lot. It's just that he can take it. And, he is currently laughing so hard that his eyes are watery." ~ A.J. Jacobs
"If the Britannica has taught me anything, it's to be more careful. I don't want to turn into an unseemly noun or verb or adjective someday. I don't want to be like Charles Boycott, the landlord in Ireland who refused to lower rents during a famine, leading to the original boycott. I don't want to be like Charles Lynch, who headed an irregular court that hung loyalists during the Revolutionary War. I can't have "Jacobs" be a verb that means staying home all the time or washing your hands too frequently." ~ A.J. Jacobs

RüzgarSimdi bir rüzgar geçti buradanKostum ama yetisemedim,Nerelerde gezmis tozmusÖgrenemedim.Besbelli denizden çikipKiyilar boyunca gitmistir,Tuz kokusu, katran kokusu, ter kokusuYüregini allak bullak etmistir.Sonra baslamis tirmanmaya daglara dogruBulutlari koyun gibi gütmüstür,Oksayip otlari yaylalardaBüyütmüstür.Köylere de ugradiysa egerIslak, karanlik odalarda besik sallanmistir,Günes altinda çalisanlaraImdat eylemistir.Sonra baslayip alçalmaya ovalara dogru,Hashas tarlalarinda eflatun, pembe, beyaz,Kiraçlarda mavi dikenler..Toz toprak gözlerine gitmistir.Sehirlere ugramis ki yanimdan geçti,Hashas çiçegine benzer kizlar görmüstür,Bir gülüs, bir tel saç, allik pudraAlip gitmistir.Simdi bir rüzgar geçti buradanKostum ama yetisemedim,Soraydim söylerdi herhaldeSoramadim."
