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."

Margaret Peterson Haddix Quotes

"A thousand times today Ive started to open my mouth, started to squeak out, "Can you tell me...? But then Id look into the front seat, at my mothers silent shaking, my fathers grim profile, the mournful bags under his eyes, and all the questions I might ask seemed abusive. Assault and battery, a question mark used like a club. My parents are old and fragile. Id have to heartless to want to hurt them."

Alejandro Zambra Quotes

"Es una historia de amor, nada demasiado particular: dos personas construyen, con voluntad e inocencia, un mundo paralelo que, naturalmente, muy pronto se viene abajo"

Quotes About Meaningful Work Life

"What was meaningful? What was meaningless? What did it mean, to amount to something? What type of life, was worth living?

Quotes About Christian Marriage

"Within this Christian vision for marriage, heres what it means to fall in love. It is to look at another person and get a glimpse of the person God is creating, and to say, "I see who God is making you, and it excites me! I want to be part of that. I want to partner with you and God in the journey you are taking to his throne. And when we get there, I will look at your magnificence and say, I always knew you could be like this. I got glimpses of it on earth, but now look at you!" Each spouse should see the great thing that Jesus is doing in the life of their mate through the Word, the gospel. Each spouse then should give him- or herself to be a vehicle for that work and envision the day that you will stand together before God, seeing each other presented in spotless beauty and glory." - Author: Timothy Keller

Quotes About No Longer Caring

"What is terrible is that after every one of the phases of my life is finished, I am left with no more than some banal commonplace that everyone knows: in this case, that womens emotions are still fitted for a kind of society that no longer exists. My deep emotions, my real ones, are to do with my relationship with a man. One man. But I dont live that kind of life, and I know few women who do. So what I feel is irrelevant and silly... I am always coming to the conclusion that my real emotions are foolish. I am always having, as it were, to cancel myself out. I ought to be life a man, caring more for my work than for people; I ought to put my work first, and take men as they come, or find an ordinary comfortable man for bread and butter reasons but I wont do it, I cant be like that." - Author: Doris Lessing
