3. "Os israelenses discutem, eu discuto. E ainda assim sou eu quem me levanto toda manhã, faço uma pequena caminhada no deserto, faço uma xícara de café, sento em minha escrivaninha e começo a perguntar-me: ‘Como me sentiria se fosse ela? Como seria estar na pele dele?' – o que é o que se tem a fazer se se quer escrever até o mais simples dos diálogos: é preciso dividir não apenas sua lealdade, mas até seus sentimentos viscerais entre os diversos personagens. Creio que estou parafraseando D. H. Lawrence, que disse certa vez que, para escrever um romance, você tem que ser capas de referendar meia dúzia de sentimentos e opiniões diferentes, conflituosos e contraditórios, com o mesmo grau de convicção, veemência e empatia. Então, talvez eu seja um pouco mais bem equipado do que outras pessoas para entender, do meu ponto de vista judaico-israelense, como é o sentimento de ser um palestino deslocado, um árabe palestino cuja terra natal foi tomada por ‘alienígenas de outro planeta'. p. 94"
Author: Amos Oz

VIII)"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

6. "I could get you to smile like that, and without sales tax." I whirled around to find the real Patch standing in the fitting room behind me. He was wearing jeans and a snug white tee. His arms were folded loosely over his chest, and his black eyes smiled down at me. Heat that wasn't entirely uncomfortable flushed through my body. "I could make all kinds of pervert jokes right now," I quipped."

7. "What hasty preparations we make for our future. Think of it: it seems almost tragic, the things we're sure we ought to bring along. We pack too heavy with what we hope we'll use, and too light of what we must. We thus go forth misladen, ill equipped for the dawn."

8. "A person raised in a healthy family is equipped to live a confident and independent life; someone from an unhealthy family is filled with fear and self-doubt. He has difficulty with the prospect of life without someone else.

Author: Christina Enevoldsen
9. "At its most basic, the logic of 'meritocracy' is ironclad: putting the most qualified, best equipped people into the positions of greates responsibility and import...But my central contention is that our near-religious fidelity to the meritocratic model comes with huge costs. We overestimate the advantages of meritocracy and underappreciate its costs, because we don't think hard enough about the consequences of the inequality it produces. As Americans, we take it as a given that unequal levels of achievement are natural, even desirable. Sociologist Jermole Karabel, whose work looks at elite formation, once said he 'didnt think any advanced democracy is as obsessed with equality of opportunity or as relatively unconcerned with equality of condition' as the United States. This is our central problem. And my proposed solution for correcting the excesses of our extreme version of meritocracy is quite simple: make America more equal"
Author: Christopher L. Hayes

Author: David Simon
11. "Later, in my adulthood, I will read the book again, even watch the movie, and understand that I wasn't equipped, as a child, to make room for arguments that would undermine every single choice made for me, that would shatter the foundations of my very existence. I would see that I had to believe everything I was taught, if only to survive. For a long time I wouldn't be ready to accept that my worldview could be wrong, but I do not look back with shame at my ignorance."
Author: Deborah Feldman
12. "Although a food processor is not an absolutely essential piece of equipment, because you can certainly chop, grate, slice, knead and mix everything by hand, it does do all these things very quickly and efficiently and saves you time and energy."
Author: Delia Smith

Drake innocently inquired."He only eats Scotsman," Robert quipped."

He heals by working through doctors, nurses, and others whom He has gifted, equipped, and called to the medical professions."

20. "People persuade themselves they deserve easy lives, that being human makes us somehow exempt from pain. The theory works fine until we face the inevitable challenges. Our conditioning of denial in no way equips us to deal with the difficult times that not one of us escapes.Cleo's motto seemed to be: Life's tough and that's okay, because life is also fantastic. Love it, live it - but don't be fooled into thinking it's not harsh sometimes. Those who've survived periods of bleakness are often better at savoring good times and wise enough to understand that good times are actually great."
Author: Helen Brown

The tailor's object, in this volume, is to fit young men, in universities or elsewhere, to be men of the world, equipped for any emergency ; and the garment offered to them is meant to show the faults of the patchwork fitted on their fathers."
Author: Henry Adams

41. "We may regard the cell quite apart from its familiar morphological aspects, and contemplate its constitution from the purely chemical standpoint. We are obliged to adopt the view, that the protoplasm is equipped with certain atomic groups, whose function especially consists in fixing to themselves food-stuffs, of importance to the cell-life. Adopting the nomenclature of organic chemistry, these groups may be designated side-chains. We may assume that the protoplasm consists of a special executive centre (Leistungs-centrum) in connection with which are nutritive side-chains... The relationship of the corresponding groups, i.e., those of the food-stuff, and those of the cell, must be specific. They must be adapted to one another, as, e.g., male and female screw (Pasteur), or as lock and key (E. Fischer)."
Author: Pasteur

That is, in one and the same gesture, make our mnemo-technic equipment intelligible as mentality and our mental equipment intelligible as technology."

If you're a little uncomfortable with what you see, uneasy with the restlessness that you feel inside, and can't quite trust your inner voice- that's God's way of trying to speak through you, to stir you up to move forward. Listen carefully. Choose your direction wisely. Don't be afraid to ask for help if you're not fully equipped. We're beautiful when we strive to reach a greater potential within ourselves. But we're most beautiful, when we help someone else reach theirs."

Ethiopians imagine their gods as black and snub-nosed; Thracians blue-eyed and red-haired. But if horses or lions had hands, or could draw and fashion works as men do, horses would draw the gods shaped like horses and lions like lions, making the gods resemble themselves. Xenophanes"
