Imam Zaid Shakir Quotes

"Allah, Most High, has truly blessed us. He has created just for us the mysterious spirit that He has breathed into us and by so doing distinguished us from all other physical creation. He has adorned us with our incomparable intellect, which further distinguishes us from all else in this creation. What other creature on this planet -another gift He has blessed us with- can even begin to create the likes of this Internet? Will we not stop, give thanks to our Merciful and Generous Lord? Will we not stop and realize how precious our lives are and begin to show each other more love, mercy, kindness and empathy? Will we not stop, take time, and reflect?"

Dahveed Quotes

"When we search for "ourselves" in the eyes of others, we have imprisoned our own-selves in believing that our self-worth is nothing unless others validate who we are. Unless we approve of whom we are, what we are, and what we are capable of doing as an individual, only then we will have released "ourselves" from our own imprisonment. We are in charge of our own lifes destiny and what we do and become can only be validated by our accomplishments and failures; not by what others may think of us."

Jane Mersky Leder Quotes

"Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesnt seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far weve traveled."

Paul Lockhart Quotes

"So how does one go about proving something like this? Its not like being a lawyer, where the goal is to persuade other people; nor is it like a scientist testing a theory. This is a unique art form within the world of rational science. We are trying to craft a "poem of reason" that explains fully and clearly and satisfies the pickiest demands of logic, while at the same time giving us goosebumps."

Robin Lee Hatcher Quotes

"What we say, my child, has an impact on those around us. Words can spread darkness and hate or shed light and love. Dont misuse them, Daphne."

Marge Kennedy Quotes

"Hard though it may be to accept, remember that guilt is sometimes a friendly internal voice reminding you that youre messing up."

Erin MacPherson Quotes

"Your husband may not be a wealth of pregnancy information, but he is a wealth of you information. He probably knows you better than anyone else in this world (which means he understands your current neediness pretty well). He also probably loves you more than anyone else in this world. So, while he may not be the person to turn to if you need to know how to soothe breast tenderness, hes the perfect person to turn to when you need a hand to hold."

Keith Olbermann Quotes

"As part of the process by which you hire me, you hire me. You just dont hire an hour of me to do a performance."

Emer De Vattel Quotes

"Here then is an infallible criterion, by which the nation may judge of the intentions of those who govern it ... if they corrupt the morals of the people, spread a taste for luxury, effeminacy, a rage for licentious pleasures, - if they stimulate the higher orders to a ruinous pomp and extravagance, - beware, citizens! beware of those corruptors! they only aim at purchasing slaves in order to exercise over them an arbitrary sway."

Gene Rodenberry Quotes

"Can all this just be an accident? Or could there be some alien intelligence behind it?"

Quotes About Anastasia

"Angry Trish had changed all his contacts to characters from Fifty Shades of Grey. He knew this because Als Auto Shop, usually listed first, was now "50 Shades of Grey gave me more orgasms than you."

Quotes About Self Monitoring

"Eisenhower had run the Army; he knew all the ways decision making can go off the rails, and insisted on collective debate precisely to prevent senior officials from freelancing, or putting their departmental interests first. For all the formal machinery, Eisenhower was very literally the commander in chief, making the key decisions himself and monitoring closely how they were carried out. Even years after D-Day, when critics needled him for not being on the front lines with the invading forces, he retorted, "I planned it and took responsibility for it. Did you want me to unload a truck?" - Author: Nancy Gibbs

Quotes About Darfur

"They traveled deep into far-flung regions of their own country and in some cases clear across the continent. Thus the Great Migration had more in common with the vast movements of refugees from famine, war, and genocide in other parts of the world, where oppressed people, whether fleeing twenty-first-century Darfur or nineteenth-century Ireland, go great distances, journey across rivers, desserts, and oceans or as far as it takes to reach safety with the hope that life will be better wherever they land." - Author: Isabel Wilkerson

Quotes About How Life Is Hard

"They knew how to live with nature and get along with nature. They didnt try too hard to be all men and no animal. Thats the mistake we made when Darwin showed up. We embraced him and Huxley and Freud, all smiles. And then we discovered that Darwin and our religions didnt mix. Or at least we didnt think they did. We were fools. We tried to budge Darwin and Huxley and Freud. They wouldnt move very well. So, like idiots, we tried knocking down religion. We succeeded pretty well. We lost our faith and went around wondering what life was for. If art was no more than a frustrated outflinging of desire, if religion was no more than self-delusion, what good was life? Faith had always given us answer to all things. But it all went down the drain with Freud and Darwin. We were and still are lost people." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Life Short And Sweet

"Then a hundred sad voices lifted a wail,And a hundred glad voices piped on the gale:Time is short, life is short, they took up the tale: Life is sweet, love is sweet, use to-day while you may;Love is sweet, and to-morrow may fail; Love is sweet, use to-day." - Author: Christina Rossetti

Quotes About Not Lying Anymore

Its real hard to screw up peoples lives when youre dead!"With trembling hands, I turned the machine off. I didnt want to hear anymore. Name calling was one thing, but now my life had been threatened. Mom never came in that night, and I never went to sleep. I sat in the middle of my bed with her loaded .45 by my side until morning."---Jordan" - Author: Katie Ashley

Quotes About God And Islam

"Many historians regard him [Offa] as the most powerful Anglo-Saxon king before Alfred the Great. In the 780s he extended his power over most of Southern England. One of the most remarkable extantfrom King Offas reign is a gold coin that is kept in the British Museum. On one side, it carries the inscription Offa Rex (Offa the King). But, turn it over and you are in for a surprise, for in badly copied Arabic are the words La Illaha Illa Allah (There is no god but Allah alone). This coin is a copy of an Abbasid dinarfrom the reign of Al-Mansur, dating to 773, and was most probably used by Anglo-Saxon traders. It would have been known even in Anglo-Saxon England that Islamic gold dinars were the most important coinage in the world at that time and Offas coin looked enough like the original that it would have been readily accepted abroad." - Author: Jim Al Khalili

Quotes About Simple Joys Of Life

"If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summers day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation. In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse." - Author: Anthon St. Maarten
