Favorite Avice Quotes

1. "Oh, bullshit. This isn't one of those stories, Avice. One moment of cack-handedness, Captain Cook offends the bloody locals, one slip of the tongue or misuse of sacred cutlery, and bang, he's on the grill. Do you ever think about how self-aggrandising that stuff is? Oh, all those stories pretending to be mea culpas about cultural insensitivity, oops, we said the wrong thing, but they're really all about how ridiculous natives overreact. Avice, we must have made thousands of fuckups like that over the years. Think about it. Just like our visitors did when they first met our lot, on Terre. And for the most part we didn't lose our shit, did we?"
Author: China Miéville
2. "O England,' said Kiaya Khátún. Her voice, mellow and strong, held an accent or a mingling of accents Philippa was unable to name. ‘O England, the Hell of Horses, the Purgatory of Servants and the Paradise of Women.'

6. "Postoje tri velike strasti: alkohol, kocka i vlast. Od prve dvije ljudi se nekako mogu izlijeciti, od trece nikako. Vlast je i najteži porok. Zbog nje se ubija, zbog nje se gine, zbog nje se gubi ljudski lik. Neodoljiva je kao carobni kamen, jer pribavlja moc. Ona je duh iz Aladinove lampe, koji služi svakoj budali koja ga drži. Odvojeni, ne predstavljaju ništa; zajedno, kob su ovog svijeta. Poštene i mudre vlasti nema, jer je želja za moci bezgranicna. Covjeka na vlasti podsticu kukavice, bodre laskavci, podržavaju lupeži, i njegova predstava o sebi uvijek je ljepša nego istina."
Author: Meša Selimović
7. "Avicenna California...Museum of my twisted youth, vault of my dearest and most disgusting memories."

8. "They [the Templars] had read Avicenna, and they were not ignorant, like the Europeans. How could you live alongside a tolerant, mystical, libertine culture for two centuries without succumbing to its allure, particularly when you compared it to Western culture, which was crude, vulgar, barbaric, and Germanic?"
Author: Umberto Eco
