[My Dad, As A Guy, Had To Quit School In The Ninth Grade, Fought In The Battle Of The Bulge. And Spent His Life Pushing Wheel Barrels Of Heavy Wet Cement. So We've Gone From Pushing Cement To Now In One Generation Pushing Legislation. But We Always Want Any President To Succeed, To Do Well; That Means America Does Well And Americans Do Well.]

The Prophet Muammad Quotes

"All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves."

Quotes About Anti Terrorism

"With Derrida, you can hardly misread him, because hes so obscure. Every time you say, "He says so and so," he always says, "You misunderstood me." But if you try to figure out the correct interpretation, then thats not so easy. I once said this to Michel Foucault, who was more hostile to Derrida even than I am, and Foucault said that Derrida practiced the method of obscurantisme terroriste (terrorism of obscurantism). We were speaking French. And I said, "What the hell do you mean by that?" And he said, "He writes so obscurely you cant tell what hes saying, thats the obscurantism part, and then when you criticize him, he can always say, You didnt understand me; youre an idiot. Thats the terrorism part." And I like that. So I wrote an article about Derrida. I asked Michel if it was OK if I quoted that passage, and he said yes." - Author: John Rogers Searle

Quotes About Tourist Guide

Then the tour guide said, And this is the Bridge of Sighs, where Lord Peter proposed (in Latin) to Harriet, and everyone suddenly came to life and began snapping pictures. Such is the power of books." - Author: Connie Willis

You just saw it with your own eyes. I did not make that shit up. (Nykyrian)Yeah but its really messing with my concept of the natural order of the universe. Paternal love? Whats next? Limb regrowth?
