Waris Dirie Quotes

"If you can survive in the desert, you survive anywhere. I know more than anything life in desert.

I can read the desert like I read my hand."

Quotes About Bible Household

"We should expect nothing less from the language that was originally given by God, to His human family. Hebrew was the method that God chose for mankind to speak to Him, and Him to them. Adam spoke Hebrew—and your Bible confirms this. Everyone who got off the ark spoke one language—Hebrew. Even Abraham spoke Hebrew. Where did Abraham learn to speak Hebrew? Abraham was descended from Noahs son, Shem. (Ge 11:10-26) Shems household was not affected by the later confusion of languages, at Babel. (Ge 11:5-9) To the contrary, Shem was blessed while the rest of Babel was cursed. (Ge 9:26) That is how Abraham retained Hebrew, despite residing in Babylon.So, Shems language can be traced back to Adam. (Ge 11:1) And, Shem (Noahs son) was still alive when Jacob and Esau was 30 years of age. Obviously, Hebrew (the original language) was clearly spoken by Jacobs sons. (Ge 14:13)" - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe

Quotes About Accuracy And Precision

"Accordingly, he had the two leaders beheaded, and straightway installed the pair next in order as leaders in their place. When this had been done, the drum was sounded for the drill once more; and the girls went through all the evolutions, turning to the right or to the left, marching ahead or wheeling back, kneeling or standing, with perfect accuracy and precision, not venturing to utter a sound.

They can be put to any use that their sovereign may desire; bid them go through fire and water, and they will not disobey." - Author: Sun Tzu

Quotes About Architects

"I heard a story once in the Orient about two architects who went to see the Buddha. They had run out of money on their projects and hoped the Buddha could do something about it. Well, Ill do what I can, said the Buddha, and he went off to see their work. The first architect was building a bridge, and the Buddha was very impressed. Thats a very good bridge, he said, and he began to pray. Suddenly a great white bull appeared, carrying on its back enough gold to finish construction. Take it, said the Buddha, and build even more bridges. And so the first architect went away very happy. The second architect was building a wall, and when the Buddha saw it he was equally impressed. Thats a very good wall, he said solemnly, and began to pray. Suddenly the sacred bull appeared, walked over to the second architect, and sat on him." - Author: Colin Higgins
