1. "Je peux exécrer ce shah, mais ce n'est pas contre lui que je me bats. Triompher d'un despote ne peut être le but ultime, je me bats pour que les Persans aient conscience d'être des hommes libres, des fils d'Adam, comme nous disons ici, qu'ils aient foi en eux-mêmes, en leur force, qu'ils retrouvent une place dans le monde d'aujourd'hui. C'est ce que j'ai voulu réussir ici. Cette ville a rejeté la tutelle du monarque et des chefs religieux, elle a défié les Puissances, partout elle a suscité la solidarité et l'admiration des hommes de coeur. Les gens de Tabriz étaient sur le point de gagner, mais on ne veut pas les laisser gagner, on a trop peur de leur exemple, on veut les humilier, cette population fière devra se prosterner devant les soldats du tsar pour obtenir son pain. Toi qui es né libre dans un pays libre, tu devrais comprendre."
Author: Amin Maalouf
2. "Si tu examines mon empire tu t'en iras voir les forgerons et les trouveras forgeant des clous et se passionnant pour les clous et te chantant les cantiques de la clouterie. Puis tu t'en iras voir les bucherons et tu les trouveras abattant arbres et se passionnant pour l'abattage d'arbres, et se remplissant d'une intense jubilation à l'heure de la fête du bucheron, qui est du premier craquement, lorsque la majesté de l'arbre commence de se prosterner. Et si tu vas voir les astronaumes, tu les verras se passionnant pour les étoiles et n'écoutant plus que leur silence. Et en effet chacun s'imagine être tel. Maintenant si je te demande: "Que se passe-t-il dans mon empire, que naîtra-t-il demain chez moi?" tu me diras: "On forgera des clous, on abattra des arbres, on observera les étoiles et il y aura donc des réserves de clous, des réserves de bois et des observations d'étoiles." Car myope et le nez contre, tu n'as point reconnu la construction d'un navire.(chapitre CXVII)"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
3. "When I look at our roster, I'm sure all of you have printed that I'm coming up on 35, and given my situation and my salary structure and all that, yeah, I have to wonder if this team is going to make moves and they haven't."
Author: Antonio Davis
4. "The roster of Nobel Peace Prize winners, though it has some strange people on it from time to time, tends to feature folks who fought for social justice in a nonviolent and constructive way somehow."
Author: Guy Burgess
5. "Or, God, maybe this was just life. For everyone on the planet. Maybe the Survivor's Club wasn't something you "earned," but simply what you were born into when you came out of your mother's womb. Your heartbeat put you on the roster and then the rest of it was just a question of vocabulary: the nouns and verbs used to describe the events that rocked your foundation and sent you flailing were not always the same as other people's, but the random cruelties of disease and accident, and the malicious focus of evil men and nasty deeds, and the heartbreak of loss with all its stinging whips and rattling chains... At the core, it was all the same."
Author: J.R. Ward
6. "My baseball team is called the I Ams. Just me and my clones on the roster. We're devastating. Well, at least I am."
Author: Jarod Kintz
7. "The Lord accomplishes great things through weak people...What is required of His people is an obedient spirit, not a roster of tremendous gifts and abilities."
Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
8. "There were no rules when it came to writing, he said. Take a close look at the lives of poets and novelists, and what you wound up with was unalloyed chaos, an infinite jumble of exceptions. That was because writing was a disease, Tom continued, what you might call an infection or influenza of the spirit, and therefore it could strike anyone at any time. The young and the old, the strong and the weak, the drunk and the sober, the sane and the insane. Scan the roster of the giants and semi-giants, and you would discover writers who embraced every sexual proclivity, every political bent, and every human attribute — from the loftiest idealism to the most insidious corruption. They were criminals and lawyers, spies and doctors, soldiers and spinsters, travelers and shut-ins."
Author: Paul Auster
9. "Is there any way to check and see if Nick and Daisy were ever at Hecate? They must have had different names or you'd remember them."I don't know why I was holding out hope that Dad would be all, "Why, yes, let me check the Hecate Enrollment Roster 9000 computer database." Those lists were probably written on pieces of parchment with quill feathers."
Author: Rachel Hawkins
10. "Do you realize it's been only a century that we've been able to go from house to car to office to car to wherever, with the heater on, and the defroster on, protected from the rain and the cold? It hasn't been much longer than that we've had lighting for streets. Think of all that darkness, all that world out there, all that mystery that we've turned into well-lighted concrete bunkers, safe and warm and dull."
Author: Sheri S. Tepper
11. "Derek Lowe and Curt Schilling were veterans when Boston won the 2004 World Series, but they were quick to recognize Johnny Pesky by name—and for good reason. Pesky last played for Boston in 1952, but his close ties to the organization since his career ended in 1954 are legendary. His presence was so great, among rookies and veterans alike, that Lowe and Schilling understood that the championship belonged to Pesky just as much as it did to the guys on the playoff roster."
Author: Tucker Elliot
12. "I volunteered to deploy to Iraq. I was one of the few soldiers who were not on the mandatory deployment roster - close to 3,000 Hawaii soldiers were."
Author: Tulsi Gabbard

Today's Quote

I appreciate and enjoy mathematics and science and all that side of things. I definitely have that side of me even though I'm not by any means an expert, but I love reading about physics and math and that kind of stuff. I wish I knew more than I did. I mean, I read books written for laymen, not textbooks or anything."
