"His very first story, he told me as he was dying, was set in Camelot, the court of King Arthur in Britain: Merlin the Court Magician casts a spell that allows him to equip the Knights of the Round Table with Thompson submachine guns and drums of .45-caliber dumdums.

14. "... det är bra för en människa att meditera över de drömmar hon haft. Då framstår den passiva tron på vetenskapen som en verklighetsflykt lika mycket som mysticismen. Därför är arbete och handling nödvändiga. Men de måste vara grundade på tro. Frågan är hur vi kan skaffa oss en tro värdig livet. ...'Jag tror på livet och människorna', hade Ahmed sagt. 'Jag anser det vara min plikt att stödja deras ideal, så länge de är riktiga, för passivitet i det fallet innebär feghet och flykt. Jag anser det också vara min plikt att motarbeta deras ideal, om jag tror att de är felaktiga, för passivitet då innebär förräderi.' Man kunde fråga sig: vad är riktigt och vad är felaktigt? Men kanske tvivlet var ett slags verklighetsflykt liksom mysticismen och den passiva tron på vetenskapen. Likväl: kunde man på samma gång vara en idealisk lärare, en idealisk äkta man och en ständig revoltör?"
Author: Naguib Mahfouz

Author: Ronald Carter
18. "Saifuddin al-Amidi (1233 Masihi) dalam kitabnya yang terkenal Abkar al-Afkar telah mengumpul dan menganalisis semua takrif ilmu yang terdapat pada zamannya secara terperinci. Beliau mendapati bahawa takrif yang dikemukakan oleh Fakhruddin al-Razi (meninggal dunia 1209 Masihi) adalah yang terbaik. Takrif itu, yang diketengahkan semula dan diperbaiki lagi oleh Profesor Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas ialah seperti yang berikut:Merujuk kepada Allah sebagai asal segala ilmu, ia (ilmu) adalah ketibaan makna sesuatu ke dalam diri seseorang. Apabila merujuk kepada diri sebagai pentafsir, ilmu adalah ketibaan diri seseorang kepada makna tentang sesuatu."
