Mario Vargas Llosa Quotes

"[Immigrants] who come from anywhere there is hunger, unemployment, oppression, and violence and who clandestinely cross the borders of countries that are prosperous, peaceful, and rich in opportunity, are certainly breaking the law, but they are exercising a natural and moral right which no legal norm or regulation should try to eliminate: the right to life, to survival, to escape the infernal existence they are condemned to by barbarous regimes entrenched on half the earths surface. If ethical considerations had any pervasive effect at all, the women and men who brave the Straits of Gibraltar or the Florida Keys or the electric fences of Tijuana or the docks of Marseilles in search of work, freedom, and a future should be received with open arms."

Luke Harding Quotes

"My four years in Russia end, then, in dramatic fashion: with a textbook Soviet-style expulsion. I am the first western staff correspondent to suffer this fate since the end of the Cold War. Im stunned. But my expulsion is not, I reflect, a surprise. Its something I have always accepted as a real, if far-fetched, possibility."

James Remar Quotes

Patrick Somerville Quotes

"In the end nothing matters but the work. You cant control how its taken, and the act of telling a story always involves a gap. Sometimes confusion is the risk of ambiguity–I say that to students all the time. Its true at the fireside and its true in the parlor, and its true in made-up towns and New York. Two humans face one another, words come out of one, words go into the other mind through the ears and eyes of the listener. Its a story. Its simple. The gap is the thing. Make sure you build the bridge."

Muhammad Al Warraq Quotes

"That Muhammad could predict certain events does not prove that he was a prophet: he may have been able to guess successfully, but this does not mean that he had real knowledge of the future. And certainly the fact that he was able to recount events from the past does not prove that he was a prophet, because he could have read about those events in the Bible and, if he was illiterate, he could still have had the Bible read to him."

Abeba Habtu Quotes

"I knew right then and there that I would become as courageous as I needed in order to keep him safe. I thought of the soldiers and bullets that I hid from in Asmara. I would stand and fight them to keep Fili safe."

Quotes About Rivalries

"And I shuddered at the apparent freedom so many women felt simply to take what they wanted without regard for other womens feelings.

I had the discouraging sense that our culture had created female monsters, dooming us to play out these intense and bitter rivalries almost against our will." - Author: Susan Shapiro Barash
