Suheir Hammad Quotes

"I understand now my father really thought he was doing me good. Education means a lot to Palestinians. Weve become some of the most educated people in the world through our diaspora. Weve had to be. When you aint got land, your degree may be your only solid ground. May father felt (feels) that being a doctor would give me security. How can I explain that Im not safe from anything if I dont write?"

Quotes About Famous Nook

"The Nook is an under-appreciated genius of a lovemark. The team at Barnes & Noble got a lot right with the Nook, and from a lovemark perspective, I think they created a more intimate product than any other dedicated e-reader. The rubber back behind the Nook is soft and pliable—not hard metal like the later Kindles—making it sensual and intimate. Barnes & Noble also recreated the engraved faces of famous authors from their stores and used them as Nook screensavers. Its brilliant, not just because it makes reading more intimate, but also because it solidifies the Barnes & Noble brand itself." - Author: Jason Merkoski

Quotes About Famous Vegetables

"He told me that in 1886 he had invented an original system of numbering and that in a very few days he had gone beyond the twenty-four-thousand mark. He had not written it down, since anything he thought of once would never be lost to him. His first stimulus was, I think, his discomfort at the fact that the famous thirty-three gauchos of Uruguayan history should require two signs and two words, in place of a single word and a single sign. He then applied this absurd principle to the other numbers. In place of seven thousand thirteen he would say (for example) Maximo Pérez; in place of seven thousand fourteen, The Railroad; other numbers were Luis Melián Lafinur, Olimar, sulphur, the reins, the whale, the gas, the caldron, Napoleon, Agustin de Vedia. In place of five hundred, he would say nine. Each word had a particular sign, a kind of mark; the last in the series were very complicated..." - Author: Jorge Luis Borges

Quotes About Science Vs Religion

"Number three: Stay away from the church. In the battle over science vs. religion, science offers credible evidence for all the serious claims it makes. The church says, Oh, its right here in this book, see? The one written by people who thought the sun was magic? I for one would like to see some proof that there is a God. And if you say a babys smile Im going to kick you right in the stomach.-Stewie" - Author: Seth Mcfarlane

Quotes About Facing Your Demons

"They say you can know a man by his enemies, Dresden." He smiled, and laughter lurked beneath his next words, never quite surfacing. "You defy beings that should cow you into silence. You resist forces that are inevitable for no more reason than that you believe they should be resisted. You bow your head to neither demons nor angels, and you put yourself in harms way to defend those who cannot defend themselves." He nodded slowly. "I think I like you." - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Famous Czech Republic

"And in some sense, God also hates sinners. You might ask, "What happened to ‘God hates the sin and loves the sinner?" Well, the Bible happened to it. One psalmist said to God, "The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong."3 Fourteen times in the first fifty psalms we see similar descriptions of Gods hatred toward sinners, his wrath toward liars, and so on. In the chapter in the gospel of John where we find one of the most famous verses concerning Gods love, we also find one of the most neglected verses concerning Gods wrath.4" - Author: David Platt

Quotes About Feeding The Homeless

"That churchgoers do the lions share of the charitable work in our communities is simply untrue. They get credit for it because they do a better job of tying the good works they do to their creed. But according to a 1998 study, 82% of volunteerism by churchgoers falls under the rubric of "church maintenance" activities -- volunteerism entirely within, and for the benefit of, the church building and immediate church community. As a result of this siphoning of volunteer energy into the care and feeding of churches themselves, most of the volunteering that happens out in the larger community -- from AIDS hospices to food shelves to international aid workers to those feeding the hungry and housing the homeless and caring for the elderly -- comes from the category of "unchurched" volunteers." - Author: Dale McGowan
