Quotes About Kristian

"Kawanku yang Muslim itu menerangkan ajaran Muhammad terkait dengan hal ini. Dia mengatakan, hubungan Islam dan Kristen seharusnya didasarkan pada dua unsur penting: ketulusan dan kerendahan hati. Sementara interaksi Muslim dengan berbagai tradisi spiritual lain termasuk Kristiani didasarkan pada tiga syarat: berusaha mengenal satu sama lain, tetap bersikap tulus dan jujur selama bertemu dan berdebat, dan berusaha rendah hati menyangkut klaim kebenaran masing-masing. Aku belum tahu sejauh mana praktiknya. Hanya, seperti itulah ajaran moral nabi dari Arab itu yang kutahu." - Author: Tasaro G.K.

Quotes About Travelling

"[…] One night, five men from Nuweiba were travelling past the mountain, and one of them fell behind, and was separated from his companions. As the man – whom we will call Ahmed – wandered in the darkness, wondering where his friends had gone, a beautiful woman suddenly appeared out of the night and blocked his path. She gave him a choice: ‘Sex, or be eaten! It was not a difficult decision. As the Bedouins put it, ‘the man did what a man has to do. […]" - Author: Robert W. Lebling

Quotes About Manning

"Giving people favors is a time-honored way of gaining loyalty. Pharmaceutical reps do it. The salespeople manning cosmetic counters do it. Lobbyists do it. Men with big crushes on impossibly beautiful women do it. Gifts work on our feelings in a couple of ways: they change the way we experience something, and they push our "reciprocate!" button. When we have the mandate to be objective and an incentive not to be, our biases often win the day-even if we dont think they will. Favors deeply affect our preferences and our loyalties." - Author: Dan Ariely

Quotes About Rape Of The Lock

"Most Americans do not own passports. Theyre not a naturally curious people. If you were to lock an American for sixty years in an empty underground bunker which contained nothing but a woolly tea cosy, the American would not even be curious enough to be tempted to see if the tea cosy would make a serviceable hat. Theyre far more likely to arrest the tea cosy, intern it illegally in Guantanamo Bay, and then repeatedly anally rape it until such time that it admits that it was actually a member of an al-Qaeda training cell. Even though at the time of the alleged offence the tea cosy was actually working as a shop assistant in a branch of Currys in Wolverhampton." - Author: Stewart Lee

Quotes About The One You Love Not Loving You

"[Words] cling to the very core of our memories and lie there in silence until a new desire reawakens them and recharges them with loving energy. That is one of the qualities of love that moves me most, their capacity for transmitting love. Like water, words are a wonderful conductor of energy. And the most powerful, transforming energy is the energy of love." - Author: Laura Esquivel

Quotes About Surfer

"Hes opening a door, but he already knows I wont walk through. The power of Bodee is in the way he reads me, sees through me, and then understands the truth behind the facade. Hes the guy who can walk straight through the House of Mirrors on the first try. Its almost annoying. No one should ride tragedy like a pro surfer while I drown." - Author: Courtney C. Stevens
