Sayyid Qutb Quotes

"والله لا يترك المؤمن وحيدا يواجه الضغط، وينوء به الثقل، ويهده الوهن والحزن، ومن ثم يجيء هذا التوجيه: {ولا تهنوا ولا تحزنوا وأنتم الأعلون إن كنتم مؤمنين} [آل عمران: 139].يجيء هذا التوجيه، ليواجه الوهن كما يواجه الحزن، هما الشعوران المباشران اللذان يساوران النفس في هذا المقام... يواجههما بالاستعلاء لا بمجرد الصبر والثبات، والاستعلاء الذي ينظر من عل إلى القوى الطاغية، والقيم السائدة، والتصورات الشائعة، والاعتبارات والأوضاع والتقاليد والعادات، والجماهير المتجمعة على الضلال."

Quotes About Let Me Down

"Right. But do you think I could face my children otherwise? You know whats going to happen as well as I do, Jack, and I hope and pray I can get Jem and Scout through it without bitterness, and most of all, without catching Maycombs usual disease. Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Nego comes up, is something I dont pretend to understand . . . I just hope that Jem and Scout come to me for their answers instead of listening to the town. I hope they trust me enough . . . Jean Louise?"My scalp jumped. I stuck my head around the corner. "Sir?""Go to bed."I scurried to my rom and went to bed. Uncle Jack was a prince of a fellow not to let me down. But I never figured out how Atticus knew I was listening, and it was not until many years later that I realized he wanted me to hear every word he said." - Author: Harper Lee

Quotes About Rough Childhoods

"And this is what we felt: vertigo, an icicle through our strong hearts, our long-lost childhoods. Sunshine in a field and crickets and the sweet tealeaf stink of a new ball mitt and a rock glinting with mica and a chaw of bubblegum wrapping its sweet tendrils down our throats and the warm breeze up our shorts and the low vibrato of lake loons and the sun and the sun and the warm sun and this is what we felt; the sun." - Author: Lauren Groff

Quotes About Not Being Treated The Same

"I thank the bullies who bullied me in many ways they taught how not to treat other human beings, not to manipulate, to not to lack empathy, to not lack morals, not to to abuse physically and/or emotionally. I thank them for the assumptions that I was "slow", "stupid", "thick".I often wonder with most them hitting their late 20s would they want their children/loved ones to be treated how they treated me? Good question isnt it and I probably know the answer. Because the scary thing is looking into the lense of someone else acting the same as YOU to your loved one must be difficult to take." - Author: Paul Isaacs

Quotes About Inalar

"Kaptan Larsenin Dünya Görüşü: "İnsan hayatını demek istiyorsun. Ama yediğin balık ya da hayvan etlerinin insanınkinden hiç bir farkı yok. Böylesine ucuz ve değersiz olan bir hayat için neden hasisce davranayım? Yeryüzünde gemilerden çok daha fazla denizci, fabrikalardan ve makinalardan çok daha fazla işçi var. Neden siz, karada yaşayan insanlar, zavallı insanlarınızı, kentlerinizin kenar mahallelerinde sefil sokaklarınızda barındırıyorsunuz?... Neden bütün hastalıkları ve açlığı onların üstüne yığıyorsunuz?... Bir parça iş için vahşi hayvanlar gibi döğüşen insanlar gördün mü hiç hayatında?..." - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Glory In Sports

"Avoid trivial pursuits. You are a child of God, destined for glory, and called to do great things in His Name. Do not waste your life on hobbies, sports, and other recreational pursuits. Do not throw away the precious moments of your life on entertainment, movies, and video games. Though some of these things can properly have a small place in the Christians life, we must be careful not to give undue attention to temporal and fruitless activities. Do not waste your life. Employ the time of your youth in developing the character and skills necessary to be a useful servant of God." - Author: Paul David Washer

Quotes About Someone Surprising You

"It takes time to see the desert; you have to keep looking at it. When youve looked long neough, you realise the blank wastes of sand and rock are teemming with life.

Quotes About True Love And Honesty

"And what is true education? It is awakening a love for truth; giving a just sense of duty; opening the eyes of the soul to the great purpose and end of life. It is not so much giving words, as thoughts; or mere maxims, as living principles. It is not teaching to be honest, because honesty is the best policy; but because it is right. It is teaching the individual to love the good, for the sake of the good; to be virtuous in action because one is so in heart; to love and serve God supremely, not from fear, but from delight in his perfect character." - Author: David O. McKay
