Author: Adam Driver
2. "For all the tough talk about China during the presidential debates, Romney and Obama evaded any mention of China's suspect human rights record, corruption, and rule of law. By not tackling these controversial topics, the candidates are protecting a strategic partnership with China at the expense of essential human values and beliefs."
Author: Ai Weiwei
3. "Christian writers, whether they like it or not, do not simply write for themselves; for good or ill, readers will see their work as reflecting Jesus Christ and his church. And if only for this reason - though there are other reasons - one must take great care when dealing with potentially controversial topics not to imagine one's every pronouncement preceded by 'Thus saith the Lord.' The law of love, on which 'all the law and the prophets' depend (Matt. 22:40), mandates charity toward one's opponents in argument."
Author: Alan Jacobs
4. "Even more difficult to explain, than the breaking-up of a single mass into fragments, and the drifting apart of these blocks to form the foundations of the present-day continents, is the explanation of the original production of the single mass, or PANGAEA, by the concentration of the former holosphere of granitic sial into a hemisphere of compressed and crushed gneisses and schists. Creep and the effects of compression, due to shrinking or other causes, have been appealed to but this is hardly a satisfactory explanation. The earth could no more shrug itself out of its outer rock-shell unaided, than an animal could shrug itself out of its hide, or a man wriggle out of his skin, or even out of his closely buttoned coat, without assistance either of his own hands or those of others."
Author: Amadeus William Grabau
5. "From this experience we have learned that in a big party it is important to have the necessary and often controversial discussions on policy issues such as the health system while in opposition."
Author: Angela Merkel
6. "Kita menganggap keimanan sebagai sumber kenyamanan dan pemahaman, tetapi mendapati ekspresi kita akan hal itu justru menyebarkan perpecahan. Kita percaya, diri kita adalah orang-orang yang toleran meskipun berbagai ketegangan rasial, agama, dan kultural mencemari lanskap kehidupan kita. Dan alih-alih berusaha menyelesaikan atau memediasi konflik ini, politik kita justru mengipasinya, mengeksploitasinya, dan menjadikan kita terpecah-belah."
Author: Barack Obama
7. "The broad outlines of the Double Cross deception have been known since 1972, when Sir John Masterman, the former chairman of the double agent committee, controversially published his account of the operation in defiance of official secrecy."
Author: Ben Macintyre
8. "When exactly did this all change, and what were the social and theological factors that led to the change? The answer seems to be in the second century and: (1) because of the consolidation of ecclesial power in the hands of monarchial bishops and others; (2) in response to the rise of heretical movements such as the Gnostics; (3) in regard to the social context of the Lord's Supper, namely, the agape, or thanksgiving, meal, due to the rise to prominence of asceticism in the church; and (4) because the increasingly Gentile majority in the church was to change how second-century Christian thinkers would reflect on the meal. Thus, issues of power and purity and even ethnicity were to change the views of the Lord's Supper and the way it would be practiced."
Author: Ben Witherington III
9. "She turned, and at her turning came a fragrant airOf godhead, and her robe grew long; ambrosial hairFlashed, and a rosy brightness on her neck, and allThe goddess in her going was revealed. His callFollowed his mother vanishing. "Unkind! Thou too?And why so oft deceive me under shapes untrue,Suffering me not to take thee by the hand nor hearThy voice unfeigned and answer in thy listening ear?"
Author: C.S. Lewis
10. "God, who needs nothing, loves into existence wholly superfluous creatures in order that He may love and perfect them. He creates the universe, already foreseeing - or should we say "seeing"? there are no tenses in God - the buzzing cloud of flies about the cross, the flayed back pressed against the uneven stake, the nails driven through the mesial nerves, the repeated incipient suffocation as the body droops, the repeated torture of back and arms as it is time after time, for breath's sake, hitched up. If I may dare the biological image, God is a "host" who deliberately creates His own parasites; causes us to be that we may exploit and "take advantage of" Him. Herein is love. This is the diagram of Love Himself, the inventor of all loves."
Author: C.S. Lewis
11. "Exposing any subject that is unpleasant or controversial means risking judgment and making some people feel uncomfortable."
Author: Carre Otis

Author: Chris Evert
14. "[Medieval] Art was not just a static element in society, or even one which interacted with the various social groups. It was not simply something which was made to decorate or to instruct — or even to overawe and dominate. Rather, it was that and more. It was potentially controversial in ways both similar and dissimilar to its couterpart today. It was something which could by its force of attraction not only form the basis for the economy of a particular way of life, it could also come to change that way of life in ways counter to the original intent. Along with this and because of this, art carried a host of implications, both social and moral, which had to be justified. Indeed, it is from the two related and basic elements of justification and function — claim and reality — that Bernard approaches the question of art in the Apologia."
Author: Conrad Rudolph
15. "An interesting life," Yingling told me, "is one filled with controversial successes punctuated by occasional and spectacular failures."
Author: Craig M. Mullaney
16. "...There are issues worth advancing in images worth admiring; and the truth is never "plain," nor appearances ever "sincere." To try to make them so is to neutralize the primary, gorgeous eccentricity of imagery in Western culture since the Reformation: the fact that it cannot be trusted, that imagery is always presumed to be proposing something contestable and controversial. This is the sheer, ebullient, slithering, dangerous fun of it. No image is presumed inviolable in our dance hall of visual politics, and all images are potentially powerful."
Author: Dave Hickey
17. "I like the idea that my audience doesn't see what I do as controversial."
Author: Dave Sim
18. "I could hear the knock and whistle of the water pipes, the purr of the calico cat. And at that moment a happiness filled me that was pure and perfect and yet it was bled with despair - as if I had been handed a cup of ambrosial nectar to drink from and knew that once I finished drinking, the cup would be withdrawn forever, and nothing to come would ever taste as good."
Author: David Leavitt

Author: Herman Wouk
24. "Selama ini kulihat hidup semakin rumit. Banyak orang tega membunuh hati nurani dengan tangan mereka sendiri. Kusaksikan tangan-tangan politik semakin kotor, meraih kemenangan demi kepentingan sendiri. Pemimpin saling berebut nasi. Pemimpin yang bahkan tak bisa memimpin hidup mereka sendiri. Lumpur menggenangi ratusan rumah, mesjid, sekolah, warung nasi, juga kenangan. Lumpur panas yang tumpah karena uang dan ketidakpedulian. Bahkan ada juga yang membunuh dengan mengatasnamakan agama. Beberapa orang dilarang beribadah di tempat ibadah mereka sendiri. Di mana ada proyek sosial, di sana cenderung ada penipuan. Banyak orang kehilangan hati mereka sendiri. Keluarga merindukan kehangatan."
Author: Iwan Setyawan

Bella Swan becomes engaged to her boyfriend of one year, Edward Cullen, and unceremoniously sends Jacob Black to the "friend zone".

Author: Jacquel Chrissy May

28. "But blaming Islam is a simple answer, easier and less controversial than re-examining the core political issues and grievances that resonate in much of the Muslim world: the failures of many Muslim governments and societies, some aspects of U.S. foreign policy representing intervention and dominance, Western support for authoritarian regimes, the invasion and occupation of Iraq, or support for Israel's military battles with Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon. (p. 136-137)"
Author: John L. Esposito

Did you ever know a Circulating Decimal come to an end?"
Author: Lewis Carroll
34. "Notkolle painunut sohva, jolla he istuivat, suuri, korkea kirjoituspöytä ja äidin hauras, leikkauksilla koristettu tuoli sen edessä, hylly, jonka lokerot olivat vielä täynnä hänen hienolla käsialallaan kirjoitettuja papereita, kulunut matto - kaikki, kaikki oli samanlaista kuin ennen, vain Ellen puuttui, Ellen ja hänen vieno sitruunan ja rautayrtin tuoksunsa ja vinojen silmiensä hellä katse. Scarlett tunsi tuskan vihlaisevan sydäntään, niinkuin syvän haavan turruttamat hermot olisivat alkaneet jälleen elää. Hän ei saanut antaa niiden herätä nyt. Hänellä oli edessään koko loput elämäänsä, jolloin niitä saisi kivistää, mutta ei nyt!"
Author: Margaret Mitchell

37. "Ma ei armasta seda maailma. Ma tõepoolest ei armasta seda. Ühiskond, milles ma elan, on mulle vastik; reklaam ajab südame pahaks; info ajab oksele. Minu töö arvutispetsialistina seisneb andmete, infohulga ja ratsionaalsete otsustuskriteeriumite mitmekordistamises. See on täiesti mõttetu. Ausalt öeldes on see isegi halb; täiesti kasutu lisapinge närvirakkudele. Selles maailmas on küll kõike muud vaja kui lisainformatsiooni."
Author: Michel Houellebecq

Dating her is not even possible. My job is to protect her. To keep her safe. That's where all my attention needs to be."
Author: Richelle Mead
40. "Consistently, [Yves] Congar emphasized the distinction between Tradition and traditionalism. The latter was an unyielding commitment to the past. The former was a living principle of commitment to the Beginning, a process that required creativity, inspiration, and a spirit of openness to the present as well as respect for the past. Two of Congar's works, on reform in the church and on the theology of the laity, proved especially controversial...Congar believed that reform was a vital and necessary dimension of the church. This was rooted in the distinction between the church and the kingdom of God and in the intermingling in the church of both divine and human elements. In light of the church's constant temptation to revert to institutionalism, it was always necessary to allow room for the prophetic voice, issuing from the margins, even though this might mean attending to uncomfortable truths."
Author: Robert Ellsberg

Today's Quote

Terre en vacance d'oeuvres d'art. Je méprise ceux qui ne savent reconnaître la beauté que transcrite déjà et toute interprétée. Le peuple arabe a ceci d'admirable que, son art, il le vit, il le chante et le dissipe au jour le jour; il ne le fixe point et ne l'embaume en aucune oeuvre. C'est la cause et l'effet de l'absence de grands artistes. J'ai toujours cru les grands artistes ceux qui osent donner droit de beauté à des choses si naturelles qu'elles font dire après à qui les voit : 'Comment n'avais-je pas compris jusqu'alors que cela était aussi beau?..."
