[A Lot Of Writers, Especially Crime Writers, Have An Image That We Think We're Trying To Keep Up With. You've Got To Be Seen As Dark And Slightly Dangerous. But I'm Not Like That And I've Realised That I Don't Need To Put That On. People Will Buy The Books Whether They See A Photo Of You Dressed In Black Or Not.]

Slobodan Tima Quotes

"Smatrao sam da je jedina ispravna pozicija umetnika, pozicija izdajnika. Umetnik je onaj čiji smeh za pretke i tradiciju porugom se ori. Umetnost mora da stremi razlici, Drugom."

Anne Gracie Quotes

"What the dev— er, deuce did you do that for? It hurt!""Good," said the angel. "I was afraid these new shoes would not be sturdy enough."

Oersted Quotes

"Oersted would never have made his great discovery of the action of galvanic currents on magnets had he stopped in his researches to consider in what manner they could possibly be turned to practical account; and so we would not now be able to boast of the wonders done by the electric telegraphs. Indeed, no great law in Natural Philosophy has ever been discovered for its practical implications, but the instances are innumerable of investigations apparently quite useless in this narrow sense of the word which have led to the most valuable results."

Michael M Rose Quotes

"Love always precedes repentance. Divine love is a catalyst for our turning, our healing. Where fear & threat may gain our compliance, love captures our heart. It changes the heavy burden of the "have-tos" of imposed obedience to the "get-tos", a joyful response to the genuine love of God. It is in the security of this love we find Sabbath (rest)."

Steven Levitan Quotes

Antonia Fraser Quotes

CP Snow Quotes

"The division of our culture is making us more obtuse than we need be: we can repair communications to some extent: but, as I have said before, we are not going to turn out men and women who understand as much of their world as Piero della Francesca did of his, or Pascal, or Goethe. With good fortune, however, we can educate a large proportion of our better minds so that they are not ignorant of the imaginative experience, both in the arts and in science, nor ignorant either of the endowments of applied science, of the remediable suffering of most of their fellow humans, and of the responsibilities which, once seen, cannot be denied."

Teuku Kutakarang Syaikh Quotes

"Wahai saudara yang budiman, raja (pemimpin) dalam alam ada tiga perkara, pangkat raja ada tiga macam. Yang memegang lahir dalam negeri lahir saja, yang perintah atas rakyat hukum adat kebiasaan dunia, itulah raja dalam alam yang memegang lahir saja. Wajib kita ikut seperti yang diperintahkannya, jika bersatu dengan agama. Perihal tidak bersatu dengan syara (agama), janganlah kita turut seperti apa yang dikatakannya. Kedua, bagi raja yang memerintah hukum batin, yang memerintah jalan agama, itulah ahlus syariah, tempat yang memegang jalan agama. Wajib kita ikuti apa yang disuruhnya, siapa yang tidak patuh akan mendapat bala."(dikutip dari tulisan Teuku Ibrahim Alfian, dalam "Mengenal Masyarakat Aceh yang Sedang Membangun")"

Edmund Burke Quotes
