1. "Unul dintre dezastele nea?teptate ale epocii moderne este acela ca accesul incomparabil la informa?ie a venit cu pre?ul incapacita?ii noastre de a ne concentra cu adevarat asupra vreunui lucru. Gândirea profunda, introspectiva, care a generat multe dintre cele mai importante realizari ale omenirii este ?inta unui atac fara precedent. Întotdeauna avem prin preajma un aparat care ne garanteaza un refugiu fascinant ?i lasciv din fa?a realita?ii. Sentimentele ?i gândurile pe care am omis sa le traim în timp ce ne uitam la ecranele noastre î?i gasesc debu?eul în tresariri involuntare ?i în capacitatea noastra tot mai scazuta de a adormi când trebuie."
Author: Alain De Botton

Author: Jim Al Khalili

Both wrote books on the subject during al-Ma'mun's reign, and it was their work that was translated into Latin and transmitted to the West, thus introducing Europeans to the decimal system, which was known in the Middle Ages only as Arabic numerals. But it would be many centuries before it was widely accepted in Europe. One reason for this was sociological: decimal numbers were considered for a long time as symbols of the evil Muslim foe."
Author: Jim Al Khalili

Cehalet tam mutluluk mudur, bilmiyorum ama düsünmek çok aci verici ve söyleyin bana, düsünmek bana ne verdi, beni hangi üstün mertebeye getirdi? Düsünüyor, düsünüyor ve düsünüyorum, kendimi milyon kere mutlulugun disinda düsündüm ama bir kere bile içinde düsünmedim. Çikarabildigim son sözcük "ben"di ki feci bir seydi..."

I'd still have the Arabian Sea and Sindhri mangoes, and crabbing with Captain Saleem, who had the most popular boat of all because his business card promoted ‘Garunteed no cockroach', and, yes, there's still be those bottles of creamy, flavored milk from Rahat Milk Corner and drives to the airport for coffee and warm sand at the beach and Thai soup at Yuan Tung; yes, Burns Road nihari; yes, student biryani; oh, yes, yes, yes, and all that, and all that again. So why complain? Why contemplate words like ‘longing'?"

Arabic, at a guess. That probably eliminated Tattooine."
Author: Laini Taylor

Author: Nadeem Aslam

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
40. "Later, when his desires had been satisfied, he slept in an odorous whorehouse, snoring lustily next to an insomniac tart, and dreamed. He could dream in seven languages: Italian, Spanic, Arabic, Persian, Russian, English and Portughese. He had picked up languages the way most sailors picked up diseases; languages were his gonorrhea, his syphilis, his scurvy, his ague,his plague. As soon as he fell asleep half the world started babbling in his brain, telling wondrous travelers' tales. In this half-discovered world every day brought news of fresh enchantments. The visionary, revelatory dream-poetry of the quotidian had not yet been crushed by blinkered, prosy fact. Himself a teller of tales, he had been driven out of his door by stories of wonder, and by one in particular, a story which could make his fortune or else cost him his life."
Author: Salman Rushdie

Democracy is promoted, but not if it brings Islamic fundamentalists to power; nonproliferation is preached for Iran and Iraq, but not for Israel; free trade is the elixir of economic growth, but not for agriculture; human rights are an issue for China, but not with Saudi Arabia; aggression against oil-owning Kuwaitis is massively repulsed, but not against non-oil-owning Bosnians. Double standards in practice are the unavoidable price of universal standards of principle."
Author: Samuel P. Huntington
42. "Do not try to do too much with your own hands. Better the Arabs do it tolerably than that you do it perfectly. It is their war, and you are to help them, not to win it for them. Actually also, under the very odd conditions of Arabia, your practical work will not be as good as perhaps you think it is. T. E. LAWRENCE, ADVICE TO BRITISH OFFICERS, IN TWENTY-SEVEN ARTICLES, AUGUST 1917"
Author: Scott Anderson

46. "Stronger than rage, astonishment, contempt, the pleasurable sense that at last she had slapped Frederick's face, the less pleasurable surmise that his slap back would be longer-lasting; stronger even than the desire to see Minna was her feeling that of all things, all people, she most at this moment wished to see Ingelbrecht, and the sturdy assurance that she would find in him everything that she expected. If she had gone up the stairs in the rue de la Carabine on her knees, she could not have ascended with a more zealotical faith that there would be healing at the top; and when he opened the door to her, enquiring politely if her errands had gone well she replied with enthusiasm, "Perfectly. My husband--it was he I went to see--has just threatened to cut me off with a penny.""A lock-out," said Ingelbrecht. "Very natural. It is a symptom of capitalistic anxiety. I suppose he has always been afraid of you."She nodded, and her lips curved in a grin of satisfaction."
Author: Sylvia Townsend Warner

Author: Virgil
50. "...tout compte fait, je crois que mon tort était de ne pas avoir eu le courage de mes convictions. Je pouvais me trouver toutes les excuses du monde, aucune d'elles ne me donnerait raison. En réalité maintenant que j'avais perdu la face , je me cherchais un masque. Pareil à un défiguré, je me cachais derrière mes pansements qui me servaient aussi de moucharabiehs. Je regardais en cachette la vérité des autres, en abusais pour distancer la mienne"
Author: Yasmina Khadra
