Bei Dao Quotes

"the bouquetBetween me and the worldyou are a bay, a sailthe faithful ends of a ropeyou are a fountain, a wind, a shrill childhood cry.Between me and the worldyou are a picture frame, a windowa field covered in wildflowersyou are a breath, a bed,a night that keeps the stars company.Between me and the world, you are a calendar, a compassa ray of light that slips through the gloomyou are a biographical sketch, a book marka preface that comes at the end.between me and the worldyou are a gauze curtain, a mista lamp shining in my dreamsyou are a bamboo flute, a song without wordsa closed eyelid carved in stone.Between me and the worldyou are a chasm, a poolan abyss plunging downyou are a balustrade, a walla shields eternal pattern."

Quotes About Taqi

"Aku amat mencintai falsafah solat Hatim. Bahawa dia berdiri dengan kewaspadaan dengan membayangkan Allah di hadapannya. Betapa syurga yang nyaman di kanan dan lidah gergasi api menyala di kiri. Begitu juga malaikat memerhati dari arah belakang. Ketika itulah dia sebenarnya meletakkan nasib imannya di atas siratul mustaqim kerana mungkin ini adalah solat terakhirnya." - Author: Mawar Safei

Quotes About Feeling Better Than Others

"It is a well-worn truth that cops grow callous, a cliché so tattered that it is even common on television. All cops face things every day that are so gruesome, brutal, and bizarre that no normal human being could deal with them on a daily basis and stay sane. And so they learn not to feel, to grow and maintain a poker-faced whimsy toward all the surprising things their fellow humans find to do to each other. All cops practice not-feeling, and it may be that Miami cops are better at it than others, since they have so many opportunities to learn." - Author: Jeff Lindsay

Quotes About Globalization And Development

"Globalization makes it impossible for modern societies to collapse in isolation, as did Easter Island and the Greenland Norse in the past. Any society in turmoil today, no matter how remote ... can cause trouble for prosperous societies on other continents and is also subject to their influence (whether helpful or destabilizing). For the first time in history, we face the risk of a global decline. But we also are the first to enjoy the opportunity of learning quickly from developments in societies anywhere else in the world today, and from what has unfolded in societies at any time in the past. Thats why I wrote this book." - Author: Jared Diamond

Quotes About The First Heart Transplant

"For a dying man it is not a difficult decision [to agree to become the worlds first heart transplant] ... because he knows he is at the end. If a lion chases you to the bank of a river filled with crocodiles, you will leap into the water convinced you have a chance to swim to the other side. But you would not accept such odds if there were no lion." - Author: Christiaan Barnard

Quotes About Dialogic

"Most of all I found myself listening- listening in the acutely active way that makes dialogue a truly hermeneutical act. Hermeneutics is the science of the interpretation of texts. Hermeneutics helps bring the meanings in texts to expression. Conversation as a hermeneutical enterprise helps persons bring their own meanings to expression. With sensitive, active listening we "hear out of" each other things we needed to bring to word but could not, without an other. This is Martin Bubers "I Thou" relationship with its dialogical transcendence; this is Reuel Howes "miracle of dialogue." - Author: James W. Fowler

Quotes About Subversive
