[David Set His Foot In A Gap Higher Up The Barbed Wire...When Would The Searchlight Come?They Could Not Be Certain Of Hitting Him In The Dark...and If They Did Not Hurry, He Would Be Over...Why Didn't They Hurry Up. Then He Stopped. He Would Run No More.When The Beam Of Light Caught Him,they Should See Him Walking Away Quite Calmly. Then They Would Not Enjoy It So Much; They Would Feel Cheated. The Thought Filled David With Triumph. I Am David]

Charles Bowden Quotes

"I am by nature a person suspicious of the economic machine that feeds me. And yet I am a captive of that economic machine, and my mind is structured by its lessons and demands. I consume its wealth with zest. I drive a truck, watch a color television, and write on a computer, but I cannot overcome the feeling that these objects and the industrial culture that produced them are temporary things, a kind of fat beast feeding on the bounty of the earth that will starve to death within the next century, or at least be severely diminished."

William Montgomery Watt Quotes

"His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad"

Josh Kun Quotes

"Here is how the harmful becomes profitable: That which yesterday was reviled today ends up in Urban Outfitters. The critic Rebecca Solnit has summarized it this way: Eat your heart out on a plastic tray, say the Sex Pistols. Now, we know where to buy the tray and what the heart tastes like."

Quotes About The Greatness Of Teachers

"The future teachers I try to recruit are those show have refused to let themselves be neutered in this way, either in their private lives or in the lives that they intend to lead in school. When they begin to teach, they come into their classrooms with a sense of affirmation of the goodness and the fullness of existence, with a sense of satisfaction in discovering the unexpected in their students, and with a longing to surprise the world, their kids, even themselves, with their capacity to leave each place theyve been ... a better and more joyful place than it was when they entered it." - Author: Jonathan Kozol

Quotes About Passionless

"In those years I did not care to enjoy sex, only to have it. That is what seeing Alex again on Fifth Avenue brought back to me - a youth of fascinated, passionless copulation. There they are, figures in a discoloured blur, young men and not so young, the nice ones with automobiles, the dull ones full of suspicions and stinginess. By asking a thousand questions of many heavy souls, I did not learn much. You receive biographies interesting mainly for their coherence.
