Favorite Rita Ora Quotes

1. "Hendaklah tukang-tukang cerita waspada terhadap hal-hal bohong dan hikayat-hikayat yang menyajikan perbuatan salah, atau yang tujuan baiknya tidak dapat difahamkan oleh umum. Atau, cerita itu merupakan satu pertarungan antara yang baik dengan buruk, lalu yang buruk mendapat pembelaan yang berlebihan sebelum dikalahkan oleh yang baik. Tanpa disedari, hal ini memberanikan orang berbuat dosa (Ihya' Ulumuddin)."
Author: Abu Hamid Al Ghazali
2. "I would not be practicing love toward God OR my neighbour if I were to smile benignly on an unjust social order. It is not charitable to refrain from moral judgment: when Jesus says 'Judge not, lest ye be judged," he is forbidding condemnation, not discernment. There are times indeed when Christian charity demands that one speak forcibly."
Author: Alan Jacobs
3. "Ya... aku tau mungkin akan sulit atau mustahil bagiku untuk ngebantuin kamu. Tapi paling nggak, dengan menceritakan permasalahan yang kamu hadapi pada orang lain, kamu akan menjadi sedikit lebih kuat."
Author: Anastasia Ervina
4. "... Blake is a ready-made patron saint for those wanting to elevate their marginality, dissent, and queerness into strength. The relative futility of Blake's battle during his lifetime make him all the more attractive. In the intertextual heritage of queer art, Blake has become an honorary icon."
Author: Andrew Elfenbein
5. "On page 149 of 476 on From Beirut to Jerusalem : " Kumohon pada setiap burung yang lewat untuk mengatakan kerinduan dan rasa cintaku kepadamu, untuk kemudian kembali membawa berita tentang orang-orang yang kucintai"
Author: Ang Swee Chai
6. "Suspiro y me muevo a estudiar los carteles de películas: el Sr. Darcy con su mano en la mejilla de Elizabeth hace nada por mí, más que querer escupir. Puede ser que la ame, pero durante toda su vida, Sr. Darcy quiso ser un desgraciado irritable. Edward Cullen, con sus brazos alrededor de Bella protectoramente mientras Jacob mira hacia ellos, me hace querer vomitar. ¿Y ellos llamaron a su bebe Renesme? POR FAVOR. Jack y Rose del Titanic me tienen apretando los puños. Rose debió abandonarlo ese día. Si lo hubiera hecho, podrían haber llegado a la balsa salvavidas. Romeo y Julieta se ven como idiotas para mí ahora. Ellos sabían que no funcionaria. Romeo nunca debería haber vuelto a su balcón. Fue su estúpida culpa. Él lo sabía. Si él simplemente no hubiera intentado, ambos habrían vivido. ¿Y quién bebe estúpido veneno para resolver sus problemas? Lamentable. Patético. Todos ellos."
Author: Anne Eliot
7. "What do you have?""Wine. Weak cider. Water. Whiskey.""A veritable plethora of ‘W' drinks.""If I ever have walrus piss, I will offer it as well."
Author: Anne Mallory
8. "Daca ea ar fi fost o femeie buna si nobila, inzestrata cu forta, blandete pasiune si bun-simt, as fi purtat o singura lupta decisiva cu doi tigri-gelozia si disperarea; si apoi, cu inima smulsa din piept si sfasiata, as fi admirat-o..i-as fi recunoscut perfectiunea si as fi ramas tacuta pentru tot restul vietii mele; si cu cat mai impecabila ar fi fost superioritatea ei, cu atat mai adanca ar fi fost admiratia mea si cu atat mai adanca linistea mea. Dar asa cum stau de fapt lucrurile, sa privesc eforturile ei de a-l seduce, sa fiu martora esecului lor repetat, iar ea sa nu fie constienta de acest esec, inchipuindu-si, in vanitatea ei, ca fiecare sageata lansata isi nimerea tinta si falindu-se plina de ea cu cu succesul obtinut, in timp ce trufia si multumirea ei de sine indeparta tot mai mult ceea ce dorea ea sa atraga- sa vad toate acestea insemna sa ma aflu in aceslasi timp intr-o provocare permanenta si o constrangere nemiloasa"
Author: Charlotte Brontë
9. "La deidad superior ordena que todas las criaturas vivas sufran -consumidas por enfermedad o gritando con cobertura corporal de sangre-, y que luego llega un día en que todas tienen que morir. (…) Si un agente da patadas frecuentes a un perro… si golpea con bofetones de mano a la compañera reproductiva… si ese agente asesina con puñal a un compañero, eso imita la lección correcta de la deidad" (Comunicado 5º)."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
10. "Ciò che un libro avrebbe potuto raccontarle non l'aveva mai intimorita. Anzi, di solito non vedeva l'ora di lasciarsi trasportare in un mondo nuovo, inesplorato, e la sua curiosità era tale che si metteva a leggere nei momenti meno opportuni."
Author: Cornelia Funke
11. "Now it turns out that a few broadsheet film critics in Britain do indeed belong to a category of people who would have resisted Hitler when he came to power. So the great shame is, clearly film critics should have been running Austria at the time, because Hitler would have represented no problem to them at all. [The Guardian's] Peter Bradshaw would have known exactly what to do, and he would not have been remotely fallible to any Nazi who threatened his life. No, he would have died in heroic acts of individual resistance. So it's a privilege to live among people who enjoy such moral certainty."
Author: David Hare
12. "A veces, cuando estamos muy tristes, nuestros sueños caen al suelo como pedacitos de estrellas que poco a poco se apagan, nuestro corazón llora en silencio para no hacer ruido. Los ojos del corazón ven mas allá de lo que la vista nos permite... Y cuando las lagrimas caen, hiela todo el cuerpo y el corazón de tanto amar se convierte en hielo para no sufrir mas, para ya no llorar... Pero que equivocado esta, al final habrá alguien para encender la llama de tu alma, que derrita el hielo que el dolor formo en tu interior. Y si volteas al cielo, te darás cuenta que quedan millones de estrellas y cada una es un sueño por cumplir. Aunque algunas se apaguen, habrán muchas que apenas empiezan a brillar. Y también te darás cuenta que hay estrellas que brillan, pero su luz no es mas que un eco, un espejismo de lo que algún día fue su verdadera luz, pero ahora ya no existen. Tu decides en que creer, solo no abandones tus sueños porque son la única puerta hacia la eternidad."
Author: Dulce María
13. "Em casa, lia a maior parte do tempo; tentava assim extinguir sob impressões exteriores o que fervilhava constantemente em mim. As únicas expressões exteriores de que dispunha vinham-me da leitura. Elas eram pra mim um grande conforto, naturalmente: comoviam-me, distraíam-me, atormentavam-me; porém um momento chegava em que eu ficava muito fatigado. Sentia necessidade de agir: então, de repente, mergulhava na libertinagem, em uma sórdida libertinagenzinha hipócrita, subterrânea. Minha irritação contínua tornava minhas paixões ardentes, lancinantes. Meus impulsos apaixonados terminavam em crises de nervos, com lágrimas e convulsões. Fora da leitura eu não tinha nenhuma distração. Nada em torno de mim que pudesse me impor um certo respeito e me atrair para si. Uma angústia vaga me submergia; eu experimentava uma sede histérica de contrastes, de oposições, e então me lançava na devassidão."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
14. "For Alwyn's grandfather, who was known as "the greatest talker in the country," used words which no one else understood, words which he did not understand, and words which do not exist, to swell a passionate theme, to confound his neighbors in an argument, and for their own sake. He would say, for example, "My farm was the very apocalypse of fertility, but the renter has rested on his oars till it is good for nothing," or "Manifest the bounty to pass the salt shaker in my direction." Something of the Bible, something of an Irish inheritance, something of a liar's anxiety, made of his most ordinary remark a strange and wearisome oratory."
Author: Glenway Wescott
15. "Mais Paris est un véritable océan. Jetez-y la sonde, vous n'en connaîtrez jamais la profondeur. Parcourez-le, décrivez-le : quelque soin que vous mettiez à le parcourir, à le décrire ; quelques nombreux et intéressés que soient les explorateurs de cette mer, il s'y rencontrera toujours un lieu vierge, un antre inconnu, des fleurs, des perles, des monstres, quelque chose d'inouï, oublié par les plongeurs littéraires."
Author: Honoré De Balzac
16. "Ombrosa non c'è più. Guardando il cielo sgombro, mi domando se è davvero esistita. Quel frastaglio di rami e foglie, biforcazioni, lobi, spiumii, minuto e senza fine, e il cielo a sprazzi irregolari e ritagli, forse c'era solo perché ci passasse mio fratello con suo leggero passo di codibugnolo, era un ricamo fatto di nulla che assomiglia a questo filo d'inchiostro, come l'ho lasciato correre per pagine e pagine, zeppo di cancellature, di rimandi, di sgorbi nervosi, di macchie, di lacune, che a momenti si sgrana in grossi acini chiari, a momenti si infittisce in segni minuscoli come semi puntiformi, ora si ritorce su se stesso, ora si biforca, ora collega grumi di frasi con contorni di foglie o di nuvole, e poi si intoppa, e poi ripiglia a attorcigliarsi, e corre e corre e si sdipana e avvolge un ultimo grappolo insensato di parole idee sogni ed è finito."
Author: Italo Calvino
17. "When men feel like "family", where the blood and genetic inheritance that unites them is the force of Love, the qualities that for so long have been inhibited by ignorance, fear and anger manifest in them spontaneously. Selfishness then vanishes with the sensation of being a part of, and not apart from."
Author: Ivan Figueroa Otero
18. "Ah, sampai di sini, mungkin kau akan bertanya siapa diriku. Tapi apa perlunya kau tahu? Aku hanya bagian kecil dari cerita ini. Aku hanya seseorang yang berusaha mencatat sedikit kenangan agar tak hilang begitu saja ditelan zaman. Jika suatu peristiwa telah pergi, kau tahu, ia tak akan hilang begitu saja. Jika dulu ada tawa, gaungnya masih bisa masih bisa kau dengar di sana. Jika dulu ada air mata, kau masih bisa membasuhnya dengan tanganmu di sana, sekarang. Jika aku mati, kenangan itu akan hidup."
Author: Iwan Setyawan
19. "In its conception the literature prize belongs to days when a writer could still be thought of as, by virtue of his or her occupation, a sage, someone with no institutional affiliations who could offer an authoritative word on our times as well as on our moral life."
Author: J. M. Coetzee
20. "Problema e ca, de cele mai multe ori, cînd aproape c-ai ajuns sa te culci cu o fata ? bineînteles daca fata nu-i prostituata sau mai stiu eu ce ?, îti spune mereu sa te opresti. Si nenorocirea e ca eu ma opresc. Majoritatea nici nu se gîndesc sa se opreasca. Dar eu nu pot altfel. Nu stii niciodata daca vor într-adevar sa te opresti sau daca le e îngrozitor de frica sau daca-ti spun sa te opresti numai pentru ca vina ? daca totusi mergi pîna la capat ? sa fie a ta si nu a lor. Totusi, continui sa ma opresc. Nenorocirea e ca mi-e mila de ele. Adica majoritatea fetelor sînt atît de proaste si de neajutorate! Dupa ce le saruti si le mîngîi un pic, le vezi cum încep sa-si piarda capul. Orice fata, cînd începe sa se încalzeasca, îsi pierde uzul ratiunii. Nici eu nu pricep de ce le ascult cînd îmi spun sa ma opresc. Si dupa ce le duc acasa începe sa-mi para rau ca m-am oprit, dar totusi continui sa ma opresc."
Author: J.D. Salinger
21. "El otoño es mi estación favorita del año —dijo él al cabo de un rato—. No es que yo esté tonteando o algo así… pero me gustan las hojas cuando se tornan rojas y anaranjadas. Son hermosas a la luz de la luna, pero más concretamente, se trata de una transformación imposible. El verde de la primavera y el verano son sólo una sombra de la identidad auténtica de los árboles, y todo ese color cuando las noches se vuelven frías es un milagro cada vez que pasa. Es como si compensaran la pérdida del calor con todo su fuego. Me gusta el Otoño… —(...)—. Tú eres así. Eres hermosa y ardes llena de colorido, y ya es hora de que salgas a la luz. Así que digo… Autumn."
Author: J.R. Ward
22. "Cu siguranta, nu-l ura. Nu, ura trecuse cu mult timp in urma si cam tot de atunci se nascuse senzatia de rusine pentru ca avusese fata de el un sentiment care s-ar fi putut numi astfel. Respetul fata de el, generat de credinta ca avea calitati de pret, desi cu greu acceptat la inceput, incetase de la un timp a-l mai considera in neconcordanta cu simtamintele ei, iar acum respectul acesta crescuse, se modificase, devenise un soi de prietenie, datorita marturiilor ce-i fusesera atat de favorabile si datorita luminii atat de bune in care se plasase in ziua aceea. [...] Il respecta, il stima, ii era recunoscatoare, ii dorea numai binele, ar fi vrut doar sa stie cat dorea el ca binele acela sa fie legat de ea si in ce masura ar fi fost spre fericirea amandurora sa-si foloseasca puterile, pe care-si imagina ca inca le mai are, pentru a-l face sa-si reinnoiasca cererea."
Author: Jane Austen
23. "—¿Acabas de... lavar un plato? —Dee retrocedió lentamente, parpadeando. Miró a Daemon—. El mundo se va a terminar. Y sigo siendo vir...—¡No! —gritaron los hermanos al unísono. Daemon parecía que en realidad iba a vomitar.—Jesús, nunca termines esa oración. En realidad, nunca cambies eso. Gracias.La boca de ella se abrió.—Ustedes esperan de mí que nunca tenga...—Ésta no es una conversación con la que quiera empezar mi día. — Dawson agarró su mochila de la mesa de la cocina—. Estoy yéndome a la escuela antes de que esto se vuelva todavía más detallado."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
24. "Hay palabras que después de ser escritas ya no valen. Hay palabras que después de ser dichas no han sido oídas. Hay palabras que después de ser escuchadas lloran. Palabras. Sólo palabras. Todas las inocencias están huérfanas de palabras."
Author: Jordi Sierra I Fabra
25. "Then, with a cheeky quirk of his brows, he leaned forward and murmured, "Would it be improper of me to admit that I am inordinately flattered by your attention tothe details of my face?"Anne snorted out a laugh. "Improper and ludicrous.""It is true that I have never felt quite so colorful," he said, with a clearly feigned sigh."You are a veritable rainbow," she agreed. "I see red and . . . well, no orange and yellow, but certainly green and blue and violet.""You forgot indigo.""I did not," she said, with her very best governess voice. "I have always found it to be a foolish addition to the spectrum. Have you ever actually seen a rainbow?""Once or twice," he replied, looking rather amused by her rant."
Author: Julia Quinn
26. "Sé lo que cínica que eres y séque probablemente vas a venir con alguna respuesta irritable cuando leas esto, pero laverdad es, que te estoy asechando porque realmente creo que me estoy enamorando deti. Eres la primera chica que ha visto a través de mí. Eres la única chica que me cantóen la cara todas mis gilipolleces. Me pusiste en mi lugar, pero al mismo tiempo, meentiendes más que ninguna otra."
Author: Kody Keplinger
27. "Similar (of course, far from identical) irritations in similar conditions call out similar reflexes; the more powerful the irritation, the sooner it overcomes personal peculiarities. To a tickle, people react differently, but to a red-hot iron, alike. As a steam-hammer converts a sphere and a cube alike into sheet metal, so under the blow of too great and inexorable events resistances are smashed and the boundaries of "individuality" lost."
Author: Leon Trotsky
28. "Regele Carol II a avut, aproape în egala masura, mari calita?i ?i mari defecte. Motive pentru a fi admirat ?i hulit. Din pacate, domnia i s-a sfâr?it prost, în condi?ii tragice pentru ?ara, a?a ca imaginea lui în posteritate a ramas mai curând defavorabila."
Author: Lucian Boia
29. "E não sou muito boa nessa história de consolar, especialmente quando tenho as mãos frias e a cama é quente. Carreguei-o com delicadeza pela rua destroçada, com sal nos olhos e o coração mortalmente pesado. Observei por um instante o conteúdo de sua alma, e vi um menino pintado de preto, gritando o nome de Jesse Owens ao cruzar uma fita de chegada imaginária. Vi-o afundado até os quadris em água gelada, perseguindo um livro, e vi um garoto deitado na cama, imaginando que gosto teria um beijo de sua gloriosa vizinha do lado. Ele mexe comigo, esse garoto. Sempre. É sua única desvantagem. Ele pisoteia meu coração. Ele me faz chorar."
Author: Markus Zusak
30. "Santangelo is irritated. "We're not suppose to be collaborating. It's supposed to be a war and you're supposed to stick to the boundaries.""We've seen you in your jocks," she reminds him. "Taylor and Griggs have pashed. You've broken into your father's police station for us. Don't you think the war has lost a bit of its tension?"
Author: Melina Marchetta
31. "- Uma coisa é certa, disse Southman, vocês, daquele lado, e nós, deste lado, temos uma única luta, a afirmação dos negros...- Irrita-me, senhor Benjamin, esse discurso da afirmação dos negros.- Irrita-o porquê?- O que diria você se encontrasse uns brancos proclamando o orgulho de serem brancos: não diria que eram nazis, racistas?- Não pode comparar, meu amigo. São percursos diferentes...- Ora, diferentes, diferentes... Por que somos tão complacentes connosco próprios?- A verdade é só uma, afirmou Benjamin, nós, os negros, temos que nos unir...- É o contrário.- O contrário, como? Sugere que nos devemos desunir?- Nós temos que lutar para deixarmos de ser pretos, para sermos simplesmente pessoas."
Author: Mia Couto
32. "This pursuit of security in the past, this attempt to find a haven in a fixed dogma and an organizational hierarchy as substitutes for creative thought and praxis is bitter evidence of how little many revolutionaries are capable of ‘revolutionizing themselves and things,' much less of revolutionizing society as a whole. The deep-rooted conservatism of the People's Labor Party ‘revolutionaries' is almost painfully evident; the authoritarian leader and hierarchy replace the patriarch and the school bureaucracy; the discipline of the Movement replaces the discipline of bourgeois society; the authoritarian code of political obedience replaces the state; the credo of ‘proletarian morality' replaces the mores of puritanism and the work ethic. The old substance of exploitative society reappears in new forms, draped in a red flag, decorated by portraits of Mao (or Castro or Che) and adorned with the little ‘Red Book' and other sacred litanies."
Author: Murray Bookchin
33. "Cats don't have names," it said."No?" said Coraline."No," said the cat. "Now, you people have names. That's because you don't know who you are. We know who we are, so we don't need names."There was something irritatingly self-centered about the cat, Coraline decided. As if it were, in its opinion, the only thing in any world or place that could possibly be of any importance.Half of her wanted to be very rude to it; the other half of her wanted to be polite and deferential. The polite half won."
Author: Neil Gaiman
34. "The classical heritage as shaped by and filtered through Roman culture had two great flaws. First, it prevented the very rich oral cultures of the ancient Mediterranean from surviving from antiquity into later times. All that was left as creative forces were Greek philosophy and Roman law. These were very substantial cultures but they represented a great narrowing of what could be passed on from antiquity to later centuries..."Second, another deficiency of classical culture was its lack of social conscience, its obliviousness to the slavery, poverty, disease, and everyday cruelty endured by more than half of the fifty million people who inhabited the empire. The classical heritage represented a narrow and insensitive social and political theory reinforcing a miserably class-ridden and technologically stagnant society."
Author: Norman F. Cantor
35. "Sono sovraccarico di tensione, irritato ed irritabile. Con le persone, con gli oggetti. Il pensiero più disturbante? Che sia stato io stesso ad alimentare qualcosa che forse non c'era. Ora sicuramente quel coltello che mi scava dentro non è più un illusione. Gli occhi e le orecchie invisibili a cui è affidata la mia persona non avranno mancato di tradurre i miei nuovi atteggiamenti in paragrafi e capitoli, corredati di suggerimenti e domande, a dubbi legati alla mia affidabilità ed efficienza. Un giorno non mi spiacerebbe avere accesso ai rapporti compilati e incasellati a mio nome. Avrei l'occasione di leggere il diario segreto che qualcuno ha scritto su di me."
Author: Paolo Ferrara
36. "Theophilus Hopkins was a moderately famous man. You can look him up in the 1860 Britannica. There are three full columns about his corals and his corallines, his anemones and starfish. It does not have anything very useful about the man. It does not tell you what he was like. You can read it three times over and never guess that he had any particular attitude to Christmas pudding."
Author: Peter Carey
37. "Es una cosa terrible enterrar algo dentro de ti y nunca dejarlo salir. Es mejor hacerle frente, para gritarlo y gritarlo y para llorar y dejarlo salir. Para ambas. No es bueno guardar las cosas en una botella, porque cuando la botella se llene, puede explotar como un volcán."
Author: Phoebe Stone
38. "Revolusi, dia adalah guru. Dia adalah penderitaan. Tetapi dia pun adalah harapan. Jangan khianati revolusi! Kembali ia pandangi dua orang tua itu, yang mungkin beberapa tahun lagi tewas digulung maut. Namun mereka meletakkan harapannya pada revolusi. Betapa mereka mengagumi lembaran uang, perwujudan revolusi."
Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
39. "Dengarkan sahaya punya cerita. Cuma satu yang dikehendaki Allah, Mas Nganten, yaitu supaya orang ini baik. Buat itu ada agama. Buat itu orang-orang berkiblat kepada-Nya. Tapi nyatanya kehendak Allah yang satu itu itu saja tidak seluruhnya terpenuhi. Di dunia ini terlalu banyak orang jahat."
Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
40. "In college I took a social psychology course, something I thought useful for a career in advertising. Psychologists tested the story of the Good Samaritan. What they learned gives us reason to pause. The greatest determinant of who stopped to help the stranger in need was not compassion, morality, or religious creed. It was those who had the time. Makes me wonder if I have time to do good. Apparently, Angel does."
Author: Richard Paul Evans
41. "Ascoltavo la mia prof preferita, quella di lettere. Stava spiegando che non si dice ma però, e neanche ma d'altra parte. Sono pleonasmi, allungano il discorso, e continuava a parlare, parlare e io pensavo che aveva ragione, ma però d'altra parte contemporaneamente d'altronde, per spiegarci di non farla lunga la stava facendo lunghissima, ma però non se ne accorgeva.E ci sono periodi molto maperò nella vita. Il fiume degli eventi ristagna e non si sa quale direzione prenderà, e andiamo alla deriva in acque torbide. Poi l'acqua diventa limpida, il torrente scorre, e tutto torna trasparente."
Author: Stefano Benni
42. "If you were born in Britain after World War II, you see a continuous atmosphere of decline, moral and economic and political."
Author: Stephen Bayley
43. "Edward a Bella: Prima di te, Bella, la mia vita era una notte senza luna. Molto buia, ma con qualche stella: punti di luce e razionalità... Poi hai attraversato il cielo come una meteora. All'improvviso, tutto ha preso fuoco: c'era luce, c'era bellezza. Quando sei sparita, la meteora è scomparsa dietro l' orizzonte e il buio è tornato. Non era cambiato nulla, ma i miei occhi erano rimasti accecati. Non vedevo più le stelle. Niente aveva più senso.C'era una sola cosa alla quale dovevo credere se volevo continuare a vivere: la certezza della sua esistenza. Per me era tutto. Al resto avrei saputo resistere. A patto che lui fosse ancora vivo e reale."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
44. "Cinta sejati selalu menemukan jalan, Borno. Ada saja kebetulan, nasib, takdir, atau apalah sebutannya. Tapi sayangnya, orang-orang yang mengaku sedang dirudung cinta justru sebaliknya, selalu memaksakan jalan cerita, khawatir, cemas, serta berbagai perangai norak lainnya. Tidak usahlah kau gulana, wajah kusut. Jika berjodoh, Tuhan sendiri yang akan memberikan jalan baiknya."
Author: Tere Liye
45. "Every collaboration I do, I feel like I've benefitted in so many different ways; it all depends on the organization. With Moncler, there is such a heritage to the brand and to the way that they work. With Brooks Brothers, in the same way, having the heritage to draw from in that collaboration is invaluable."
Author: Thom Browne
46. "All of us, I suppose, like to believe that in a moral emergency we will behave like the heroes of our youth, bravely and forthrightly, without thought of personal loss or discredit. Certainly that was my conviction back in the summer of 1968. Tim O'Brien: a secret hero. The Lone Ranger. If the stakes ever became high enough—if the evil were evil enough, if the good were good enough—I would simply tap a secret reservoir of courage that had been accumulating inside me over the years. Courage, I seemed to think, comes to us in finite quantities, like an inheritance, and by being frugal and stashing it away and letting it earn interest, we steadily increase our moral capital in preparation for that day when the account must be drawn down. It was a comforting theory. It dispensed with all those bothersome little acts of daily courage; it offered hope and grace to the repetitive coward; it justified the past while amortizing the future."
Author: Tim O'Brien
47. "Kesamaran yang jelas terdapat berkaitan perhubungan yaqin dan zann pada tahap ilmu manusia, walaupun jika ia berdasarkan sumber Ilahi, sepatutnya dilayani dan dihargai sebagai satu keresahan positif. Di sebelah pihak iaitu, pihak yang berkeyakinan, menekankan kemungkinan keputusan-keputusan yang dibuat oleh manusia dan mengelakkan keraguan yang tekal dan buruk padahnya amatlah penting. Pada pihak yang lain pula, aspek keraguan akan keresahan itu mesti sentiasa diingati demi mencegah kefanatikan dan kesombongan yang melampau sama ada berbentuk teologis, saintifik atau sejarah, yang telah mengakibatkan banyak penderitaan manusia, di samping menggalakkan penyelidikan lanjut dalam semangat ijtihad dan shura. Sikap ini akan menggalakkan kerjasama dan akan memajukan perkembangan sains, kemanusiaan dan tamadun bukan sahaja di kalangan orang Islam, tetapi seluruh kemanusiaan."
Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
48. "The divine mandate to use the world justly and charitably, then, defines every person's moral predicament as that of a steward. But this predicament is hopeless and meaningless unless it produces an appropriate discipline: stewardship. And stewardship is hopeless and meaningless unless it involves long-term courage, perseverance, devotion, and skill. This skill is not to be confused with any accomplishment or grace of spirit or of intellect. It has to do with everyday proprieties in the practical use and care of the created things - with "right livelihood."
Author: Wendell Berry
49. "We have become a more juvenile culture. We have become a childish "me, me, me" culture with fifteen-second attention spans. The global village that television was supposed to bring is less a village than a playground...Little attempt is made to pass on our cultural inheritance, and our moral and religious traditions are neglected except in the shallow "family values" arguments."
Author: Wes Jackson
50. "Svoju patnju, koju prihvatam, moram da prihvatim kao dragocenost. Ne postoji nijedan ispirac zlata koji iskopava samo zlato. Ispirac vadi pesak sa korita reke, naslepo, ne razmišljajuci šta ce da izvadi iz vode. On bi voleo da je u pesku i zlato, ali možda ga uopšte nece biti, on mora da se pomiri sa time. Niko nema povlasticu da unapred odabere ono što želi."
Author: Yukio Mishima
