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.

Quotes About Personality Quirks

"Acceptance. We want someone to look at us, and really see us—our physical flaws, our personality quirks, our insecurities. And we want them to be okay with every square inch of who we are. Were always afraid we might be too needy or too much work. We put all these limitations on ourselves and our relationships because were afraid that were not really loved. That were not really accepted. We hide little pieces of ourselves because we think that might be the one thing that finally drives away the person whos supposed to love us." - Author: Michele Bardsley

Quotes About Good Days And Bad Days

"Grief is not linear. People kept telling me that once this happened or that passed, everything would be better. Some people gave me one year to grieve. They saw grief as a straight line, with a beginning, middle, and end. But it is not linear. It is disjointed. One day you are acting almost like a normal person. You maybe even manage to take a shower. Your clothes match. You think the autumn leaves look pretty, or enjoy the sound of snow crunching under your feet. Then a song, a glimpse of something, or maybe even nothing sends you back into the hole of grief. It is not one step forward, two steps back. It is a jumble. It is hours that are all right, and weeks that arent. Or it is good days and bad days. Or it is the weight of sadness making you look different to others and nothing helps." - Author: Ann Hood

Quotes About Imam Ali

"Razlog zašto više nisam htio čuti tu stvar nije imao nikakve veze s uspomenama na Šimamoto. Pjesma jednostavno nije više na mene djelovala kao prije. Zašto, ne znam. Ono nešto posebno što sam davno osjetio u toj melodiji sad je nestalo. I dalje je to bila krasna melodija, ali ništa više od toga. A nije mi na pamet padalo da slinim nad mrtvim truplom lijepe pjesme." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Desdemona In Othello

"OTHELLO [Rising.]                         O, she was foul!— I scarce did know you, uncle; there lies your niece, Whose breath, indeed, these hands have newly stoppd: I know this act shows horrible and grim. GRATIANO Poor Desdemona! I am glad thy fathers dead: Thy match was mortal to him, and pure grief Shore his old thread in twain: did he live now, This sight would make him do a desperate turn, Yea, curse his better angel from his side, And fall to reprobance.

Quotes About Gender Selection

"When one ponders on the tremendous journey of evolution over the past three billion years or so, the prodigious wealth of structures it has engendered, and the extraordinarily effective teleonomic performances of living beings from bacteria to man, one may well find oneself beginning to doubt again whether all this could conceivably be the product of an enormous lottery presided over by natural selection, blindly picking the rare winners from among numbers drawn at random. [Nevertheless,] a detailed review of the accumulated modern evidence [shows] that this conception alone is compatible with the facts." - Author: Jacques Monod
