[In Deuteronomy 5:9 The Bible Says "I The Lord Your God Am A Jealous God, Visiting The Iniquity Of The Fathers Upon The Children To The Third And The Fourth Generation Of Those Who Hate Me." I Used To Find This An Appallling Sentence...But I've Come To Appreciate It. The Trick Is, You Have To See The Passage As A Warning That Your Moral Failings Will Affect Your Kids' Ability To Make The Right Choices. If You Beat Your Son, He'll Be More Likely To Beat His Son. If You Get Angry At Cantaloupe-related Mishaps, Your Son Will Too. What Better Deterrent Could There Be To Bad Behavior?]

Saker Sunna Quotes

"To the one I always believed in.I always thought true friends are never apart,I always thought that you will always be my bestfriend. But, you changed…I never lied to you, I never meant to hurt you even when you meant to hurt me, you always had a special place in my heart.those nights we spent talking, those hours we laughed at, I thought that you were a gift sent by god to me.when I asked you, what am I to you ?? you always answer with a short amazing beautiful answer, you always put a smile on my face even when I wanna cry.what changed, why am I not the same person you used to think of ? why arent you the same person I used to love and care for ? what happened to us ?is it just me with my head ? or its truly you ?are we heading down ? could this be the end ?I hope not… you used to move like an angle around me, now youre just a girl walking… I used to smile when I hear your name, now I know its nothing but troubles... I used to love you, now its even rough to think about."

Quotes About Turkey Istanbul

"I had a real revelation. We were all in robes, and they made some Turkish coffee for us. The professor explained how the coffee was made very different from anywhere else, and I realized, So fucking what? Which kids even in Turkey give a shit about Turkish coffee? All day I had looked at young people in Istanbul. They were all drinking what every other kind in the world drinks, and they were wearing clothes that look like they were bought at the Gap, and they are all using cell phones. They were like kids everywhere else. It hit me that, for young people, this whole world is the same now. When were making products, there is no such thing as a Turkish phone, or a music player that young people in Turkey would want thats different from one young people elsewhere would want. Were just one world now." - Author: Walter Isaacson
