I've seen him break a man's nose in the ring, shatter an eardrum, close an eye.

Islam hasno such complexes."

5. "The great point in Christianity is the search for an independent content for spiritual life which, according to the insights of its founder, could be elevated, not by the forces of a world external to the soul of man, but by the revelation of a new world within his soul. Islam fully agrees with this insight and supplements it by the further insight that the illumination of the new world thus revealed is not something foreign to the world of matter but permeates it through and through. Thus the affirmation of spirit sought by Christianity would come not by the renunciation of external forces which are already permeated by the illumination of spirit, but by a proper adjustment of man's relation to these forces in view of the light received from the world within."
Author: Allama Iqbal

"What have you got on your feet?" he growled."Shoes."He looked down, his eyes accustomed to the inky black. Light-weight sneakers, already soaking wet from the damp undergrowth. "Christ, woman," he muttered."I didn't exactly get a chance to choose my wardrobe when they kidnapped me," she said.Damned if he didn't like her."
Author: Anne Stuart

She'd happily embarked on a study of ancient Egyptian religion but had no curiosity about Islam, which seemed an amalgam of oddities and borrowings. She felt with conviction what she'd written home more than once--that Egypt would be an exquisite country if not for the Egyptians who lived there."
Author: Enid Shomer
14. "There is perhaps some hope to be derived from the fact that in most instances where an attempt to realize an ideal society gave birth to the ugliness and violence of a prolonged active mass movement the experiment was made on a vast scale and with a heterogeneous population. Such was the case in the rise of Christianity and Islam, and in the French, Russian and Nazi revolutions. The promising communal settlements in the small state of Israel and the successful programs of socialization in the small Scandinavian states indicate perhaps that when the attempt to realize an ideal society is undertaken by a small nation with a more or less homogeneous population it can proceed and succeed in an atmosphere which is neither hectic nor coercive."
Author: Eric Hoffer

And I have to fight the urge to take her by the shoulders and slam her against a shuttered building until we feel the vibrations ringing through both of us. Because I suddenly want to hear her bones rattle. I want to feel the softness of her flesh give, to hear her gasp as my hip bone jams into her. I want to yank her head back until her neck is exposed. I want to rip my hands through her hair until her breath is labored. I want to make her cry and then lick up the tears. And then I want to take my mouth to hers, to devour her alive, to transmit all the things she can't understand."
Author: Gayle Forman
17. "I can't bear these accounts I read in the Times and elsewhere of these poetry slams, in which various young men and women in various late-spots are declaiming rant and nonsense at each other. The whole thing is judged by an applause meter which is actually not there, but might as well be. This isn't even silly; it is the death of art."
Author: Harold Bloom
18. "[From below comes the noise of a door slamming.]"
Author: Henrik Ibsen
19. "Apabila buku tu cakap tentang kita meletak label dan stereotaip ke atas bab agama. Yang membuatkan orang bukan Muslim itu sendiri jauh daripada Islam. Bukan yang bukan Islam aje, yang Islam tapi tak berapa nak faham Islam pun terasa nak jauh daripada Islam. Sebab bab label-melabel dan stereotaip tu la. Dan ironi apabila kadang-kadang penyebab tu adalah yg namanya Muslim yang faham Islam itu sndiri."
Author: Hlovate
20. "Up ahead about two blocks, a massive figure stepped out into her path. She halted. Took a deep breath. Felt a prickling in her eyes. On the breeze drifting down to her, John's unmistakable bonding scent was a dark spice that wiped out the stink of the city and the wretched sting of her unhappiness.She started walking toward him. Fast. Faster...Now she was running. He met her halfway, falling into a jog as soon as he saw her pick up the pace, and they slammed into each other.Hard to know whose mouth found whose, or whose arms were cinched tighter, or who was the desperate one. But then, in this they were equals."

The hair at his neck curled from dampness. "You don't have to be afraid of me." She almost laughed. "A stranger breaks in, and I'm supposed to be cool with that?" "Amy, we're not strangers."
Author: Jaime Rush
23. "I fucking love you!" He grabbed each side of my face, slamming his lips against mine. "I love you so much, Pigeon," he said, kissing me over and over.

I smiled with as much deviance as I could muster."

She hunches, squirming, out of the way as he rolls past, bouncing off the back of the sofa but making a nice recovery, and by now she's ticklish all over, he can grab an ankle, elbow— But a rocket has suddenly struck. A terrific blast quite close beyond the village: the entire fabric of the air, the time, is changed—the casement window blown inward, rebounding with a wood squeak to slam again as all the house still shudders. Their hearts pound. Eardrums brushed taut by the overpressure ring in pain. The invisible train rushes away close over the rooftop.... They sit still as the painted dogs now, silent, oddly unable to touch. Death has come in the pantry door: stands watching them, iron and patient, with a look that says try to tickle me."

Proses berfikir dan mengetahui dalam al-Quran dijelaskan oleh beberapa kata kerja seperti 'aqila, faqiha, tafakkara, hasiba, zanna, i'tibara, tadabbara dan hakima yang semuanya mesti bermula daripada data dan fakta persepsi indera. Pemikiran dalam Islam seharusnya berteraskan fakta atau data sama ada tentang alam, tabii, hakikat fizikal dan psikologi manusia dan aliran sejarah. Malahan, dalam pemikiran dan renungan mengenai kewujudan Allah yang ghaib umpamanya, al-Quran menarik perhatian akal manusia supaya berhujah daripada persekitara tabii, sejarah dan kejiwaannya dan pengalamannya, yang bertebaran di sepanjang halamannya."
