Seyyed Hossein Nasr Quotes

"Islamic science is related profoundly to the Islamic world view. It is rooted deeply in knowledge based upon the unity of Allah or al-tawhid and a view of the universe in which Allahs Wisdom and Will rule and in which all things are interrelated reflecting unity on the cosmic level. In contrast, Western science is based on considering the natural world as a reality which is separate from both Allah and the higher levels of being. At best, Allah is accepted as the creator of the world, as a mason who has built a house which now stand on its own. His intrusion into the running of the world and His continuous sustenance of it are not accepted in the modern scientific world view."

Quotes About Knowing Our Past

"But it doesnt happen that way, I keep telling myself knowingly and sadly. Only in our fraternity pledges and masonic inductions, our cowboy movies and magazine stories, not in our real-life lives. For, the seventeenth-century humanist to the contrary, each man is an island complete unto himself, and as he sinks, the moving feet go on around him, from nowhere to nowhere and with no time to lose. The world is long past the Boy Scout stage of its development; now each man dies as he was meant to die, and as he was born, and as he lived: alone, all alone. Without any God, without any hope, without any record to show for his life.("New York Blues")" - Author: Cornell Woolrich

Quotes About Beauty And Simplicity

"The genius of Laplace was a perfect sledge hammer in bursting purely mathematical obstacles; but, like that useful instrument, it gave neither finish nor beauty to the results. In truth, in truism if the reader please, Laplace was neither Lagrange nor Euler, as every student is made to feel. The second is power and symmetry, the third power and simplicity; the first is power without either symmetry or simplicity. But, nevertheless, Laplace never attempted investigation of a subject without leaving upon it the marks of difficulties conquered: sometimes clumsily, sometimes indirectly, always without minuteness of design or arrangement of detail; but still, his end is obtained and the difficulty is conquered." - Author: Laplace

Quotes About Ian Rush

"Despite their authoritarian light show, those ice-cream trucks of death couldnt do any more for Perkuss murdered infatuation, his crushed crush, than could keening Greek chorus, or a moaning witch doctor." - Author: Jonathan Lethem

Quotes About Augustus

"Love"Im in love with you," he said quietly."Augustus,"I said."I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "Im in love with you, and Im not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. Im in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that were all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth well ever have, and I am in love with you.""Augustus," I said again, not knowing what else to say. It felt like everything was rising up in me, like I was drowning in this weirdly painful joy, but I couldnt say it back. I couldnt say anything back. I just looked at him and let him look at me until he nodded, lips pursed, and turned away, placing the side of his head against the window." - Author: John Green

Quotes About Instructor

"Julie crossed her arms. "Im serious. Flat Finn cant possibly go to school with her, right?""He already went to Brandeis so, no, he doesnt need to repeat seventh grade. Although they did make him take a bunch of tests in order to qualify out. He barely passed the oral exams, though, because the instructors found him withholding and tight-lipped. Its a terribly biased system, but at least he passed and wont have to suffer through the schools annual reenactment of the first Thanksgiving. He has a pilgrim phobia.""Funny.

Quotes About Twisted Words

"Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them." - Author: Karen Marie Moning

Quotes About Intelligence Agency

Quotes About Successful

"Jim Roger, the successful investor and author, puts it well; "Why are 300 million Americans having to pay for Citibanks mistakes? The way the system is supposed to work [is this]: People fail. And then the competent people take over the assets from the failed people, and then you start again with a new stronger base. What were doing this time is. . .taking the assets from the competent people, giving them to the incompetent people, and saying, ‘ok, now you can compete with the competent people. So everybodys weakened: The whole nation is weakened." - Author: John Stossel No They can t Pg 32 Threshold Editions New York New York 2012

Quotes About Endeavour

"Justine, you may remember, was a great favourite of yours; and I recollect you once remarked that if you were in an ill humour, one glance from Justine could dissipate it, for the same reason that Ariosto gives concerning the beauty of Angelica —she looked so frank-hearted and happy. My aunt conceived a great attachment for her, by which she was induced to give her an education superior to that which she had at first intended. This benefit was fully repaid; Justine was the most grateful little creature in the world: I do not mean that she made any professions I never heard one pass her lips, but you could see by her eyes that she almost adored her protectress. Although her disposition was gay and in many respects inconsiderate, yet she paid the greatest attention to every gesture of my aunt. She thought her the model of all excellence and endeavoured to imitate her phraseology and manners, so that even now she often reminds me of her." - Author: Mary Shelley
