201. "The Savage interrupted him. "But isn't it natural to feel there's a God?" "You might as well ask if it's natural to do up one's trousers with zippers," said the Controller sarcastically. "You remind me of another of those old fellows called Bradley. He defined philosophy as the finding of bad reason for what one believes by instinct. As if one believed anything by instinct! One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them. Finding bad reasons for what one believes for other bad reasons–that's philosophy. People believe in God because they've been conditioned to."

203. "We don't worship Satan, we worship ourselves using the metaphorical representation of the qualities of Satan. Satan is the name used by Judeo-Christians for that force of individuality and pride within us. But the force itself has been called by many names.We embrace Christian myths of Satan and Lucifer, along with Satanic renderings in Greek, Roman, Islamic, Sumerian, Syrian, Phrygian, Egyptian, Chinese or Hindu mythologies, to name but a few. We are not limited to one deity, but encompass all the expressions of the accuser or the one who advocates free thought and rational alternatives by whatever name he is called in a particular time and land. It so happens that we are living in a culture that is predominantly Judeo-Christian, so we emphasize Satan. If we were living in Roman times, the central figure, perhaps the title of our religion, would be different. But the name would be expressing and communicating the same thing. It's all context."

205. "E quem é que os americanos não destruíram? Olha o que eles estão a fazer no Médio Oriente. É a mesma coisa.…Mas os Vietnamitas derrotaram-nos, porque eram um povo unido. Ao contrário dos idiotas dos Árabes… os Ingleses puseram-nos uns contra os outros há cem anos e eles são demasiado ignorantes para o perceberem. Se fossem unidos, podiam conquistar o mundo.…A América não vai deixar ninguém conquistar o mundo, a não ser eles próprios. Rebentam com todos nós antes de deixarem seja quem for levar vantagem."
Author: Christos Tsiolkas
206. "Malgré les fanatiques, il serait extrêmement dangereux d'importer en France la thèse d'un «choc de civilisations» entre le monde musulman et nous. Ne faisons pas de l'Islam le miroir où toutes nos difformités s'effacent. Ne renouvelons pas l'erreur de nous forger un ennemi pour éviter de nous interroger sur nous-mêmes.Or, quel modèle proposons-nous ? Un monde dominé par l'argent et le sexe. Des sociétés dépolitisées, sans défense contre la montée des communautarismes. Des sociétés délaïcisées, où sévit l'alliance explosive de la religion et de la techno-science. Il nous faut retrouver une parole libre. Désigner haut et fort la menace que font peser les communautés, les identités collectives, les religions — toutes les religions —, sur la paix civile et la liberté individuelle. Refuser le scandale d'une pensée asservie à des dogmes. Osons être en toutes choses des athées résolus, méthodiques et gais."

Author: Edith Wharton
212. "Dire, comme le font Lewis et ses imitateurs, que toutes ces opinions ne font qu'épouser des "causes à la mode" ne répond pas à la question de savoir pourquoi, par exemple, tant de spécialistes de l'islam étaient et sont encore régulièrement consultés par des gouvernements, pour lesquels il travaille activement, et dont le dessein se résume à l'exploitation, la domination et l'agression ouverte du monde islamique ; ; ou pourquoi tant de spécialistes de l'islam - comme Lewis lui-même - estiment de leur propre chef qu'il fait parti de leur devoir d'organiser l'attaque contre les peuples musulmans et arabes contemporains tout en prétendant que la culture arabe "classique" peut néanmoins faire l'objet d'études désintéressées."
Author: Edward W. Said

214. "And then they started deleting the protest reviews.That was my line. When they started to stamp out dissent, actually to make it disappear with virtually no excuse for doing so...that's not neglect. That's not an overwhelmed person or people trying to figure it out. That's an entity that has decided that they do not care, that they have moved on from the issue, do not see it as an issue, and is trying to avoid bad press. Or they are too far down the line to backtrack on what they've been doing and save face. They're content with their wildly inconsistent policy enough to no longer care what effect it is having on their user base. If you try to silence dissent, then something is very, very wrong."
Author: G.R. Reader

Author: Haruki Murakami
217. "He was so conspicuously, irrefutably good-looking, it was silly; it made you want to laugh. With his long legs and his broad shoulders, and the flatness of his belly where his shirt tucked into his trousers, and those dark eyes with the thick black lashes, he looked like a god compared to other Pagford men, who were so slack and pallid and porky."
Author: J.K. Rowling

Es schien, als fahre er aufs Geratewohl, als habe er über die Fahrt geschwankt; doch kam er nicht über den Wendekreis des Krebses hinaus.Indem wir dieses Meer verließen, bekamen wir einen Augenblick Mascat zu sehen, die bedeutendste Stadt im Land Oman. Ich bewunderte ihr seltsames Aussehen, mitten in einer Umgebung schwarzer Felsen weiße Häuser und Festungswerke in grellem Abstich. Ich sah die runden Kuppeln ihrer Moscheen mit den schlanken Spitzen ihrer Minarette, ihren Terrassen in frischem Grün. Aber es war nur ein Gesicht meiner Phantasie, denn der Nautilus tauchte bald unter die dunkeln Wellen dieser Gegenden."

These things, perhaps, ought so to be, and I think that they are for the best."

For all was marvelous there, was and is still, but humanity becomes inured to repetitive amazements - that the sun may rise, that a tiny seed may become a tree or a man, that life, coming from nowhere, sets us to moving like clockwork, and going out again leaves us to sleep.

But to Ezail, all was wonder and no single item more than another: Dawns and dragons were one."
