Favorite Uluru Quotes

1. "[Australia] is the home of the largest living thing on earth, the Great Barrier Reef, and of the largest monolith, Ayers Rock (or Uluru to use its now-official, more respectful Aboriginal name). It has more things that will kill you than anywhere else. Of the world's ten most poisonous snakes, all are Australian. Five of its creatures - the funnel web spider, box jellyfish, blue-ringed octopus, paralysis tick, and stonefish - are the most lethal of their type in the world. This is a country where even the fluffiest of caterpillars can lay you out with a toxic nip, where seashells will not just sting you but actually sometimes go for you. ... If you are not stung or pronged to death in some unexpected manner, you may be fatally chomped by sharks or crocodiles, or carried helplessly out to sea by irresistible currents, or left to stagger to an unhappy death in the baking outback. It's a tough place."
Author: Bill Bryson
2. "[About Uluru] I'm suggesting nothing here, but I will say that if you were an intergalactic traveler who had broken down in our solar system, the obvious directions to rescuers would be: "Go to the third planet and fly around till you see the big red rock. You can't miss it." If ever on earth they dig up a 150,000-year-old rocket ship from the galaxy Zog, this is where it will be. I'm not saying I expect it to happen; not saying that at all. I'm just observing that if I were looking for an ancient starship this is where I would start digging."

3. "Uzaklar yaklasinca, özledigimiz yere ulasinca görürüz ki hiçbir sey degismemistir. Kendimizi yine o yoksullugumuzun dar çerçevesi içinde buluruz. Bu böyle sürüp gider ve ruhumuz hep elinden kaçan mutlulugun ardindan gögüs geçirip durur."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
4. "Insan tabiattan bile bikiyor. Inanmazsin bütün manzaralari gülünç bulurum. Bize vaktiyle ögretmisler ki, dag, dere, tepe, deniz, mehtap güzel seylerdir. Bu telkin altinda, kendimize bunlari güzel göstermeye çalisiyoruz. Bana, öyle geliyor ki, güzel hakkindaki telâkkilerimiz tekâmülü muhtaçtir. Artik basma kalip manzalardan hoslanmiyorum. Içimde herseye, tabiata, sanata, kadina karsi bir tiksinme var. Galiba yasamaktan pek yorulmusum."

Today's Quote

Imagine your whole life aimed at conquest, at the spread of Radchaai space. You see murder and destruction on an unimaginable scale, but they see the spread of civilisation, of Justice and Propiety, of Benefit for the universe. The death and destruction, these are unavoidable by-products of this one, supreme good."
