Leon Eisenberg Quotes

"To believe that mans aggressiveness or territoriality is in the nature of the beast is to mistake some men for all men, contemporary society for all possible societies, and, by a remarkable transformation, to justify what is as what needs must be; social repression becomes a response to, rather than a cause of, human violence. Pessimism about man serves to maintain the status quo. It is a luxury for the affluent, a sop to the guilt of the politically inactive, a comfort to those who continue to enjoy the amenities of privilege."

Mohamed Gamal Aboueid Quotes

"في فناء السجن الواسع تجمع نزلاء الزنزانة رقم 1 فرحين بالنور يرقصون و يهتفون للحرية وللحياة بعدما حطموا الابواب الحديدية وتغلبوا علي الحراس..ولم يمر وقت طويل حتي ثار النزلاء في الزنزانة رقم 2 وبدؤا يهتفون ويدقون علي الجدران ويحطمون النوافذ ثم اشتبكوا مع الحراس ليسقط منهم قتلي وجرحي.. وفي الزنزانة رقم 3 بدأ الهتاف يعلو بينما كان المساجين في كافة أرجاء السجن العربي الكبير يسترقون السمع ويحلمون...."

"The Quran sought to reform, not to destroy and start from scratch, tosalvage what was useful and then to modify and build on it. The task wasto get the Arabs to think about religion in a novel way, to inculcate in them a new conceptual frame of reference, to transfer them from one worldview to another, and higher, one. This process of transformation took them from traditionalism to individualism, from impulsiveness to discipline, from supernaturalism to science, from intuition to conscious reasoning and, in the end, ideally, harmonized the whole."

Quotes About Rorty

"[Jürgen Habermas obituary to friend and philosopher, Richard Rorty]One small autobiographical piece by Rorty bears the title Wild Orchids and Trotsky. In it, Rorty describes how as a youth he ambled around the blooming hillside in north-west New Jersey, and breathed in the stunning odour of the orchids. Around the same time he discovered a fascinating book at the home of his leftist parents, defending Leon Trotsky against Stalin. This was the origin of the vision that the young Rorty took with him to college: philosophy is there to reconcile the celestial beauty of orchids with Trotskys dream of justice on earth. Nothing is sacred to Rorty the ironist. Asked at the end of his life about the holy, the strict atheist answered with words reminiscent of the young Hegel: My sense of the holy is bound up with the hope that some day my remote descendants will live in a global civilization in which love is pretty much the only law." - Author: Jürgen Habermas

Quotes About Evitar

"—No creo que siquiera pueda respirar si no estamos juntos —susurró—. Lo que quiere decir, que cuando te vea el lunes a la mañana, habrán pasado como sesenta horas desde que he respirado. Esa es probablemente la razón por la que estoy tan gruñona, y por qué te grito. Todo lo que hago cuando estamos separados es pensar en ti, y todo lo que hago cuando estamos juntos es entrar en pánico. Porque cada segundo se siente tan importante. Y porque estoy tan fuera de control, no puedo evitarlo. Ni siquiera me pertenezco, soy tuya, ¿y qué si decides que no me quieres? ¿Cómo podrías quererme como te quiero?" - Author: Rainbow Rowell
