Stephanie Pearl McPhee Quotes

"I think my personal minimum score for anything Im thinking about doing--knitting or not--is about a seven on the interest scale. If somethings scoring a five, like a movie, then I need to add at least two points of knitting to do it for me to be able to hang in.If its something gripping, like a conversation with a charming and entertaining friend, I may not need to add much knitting at all. If my friend scores a nine, I might only toss in a plain sock, with no patterning or anything, just round and round on autopilot while we visit. (I can only think of one thing I do with another person that really has no room to add any sort of knitting to, but lets not discuss it here.)"

Annemarie Schwarzenbach Quotes

"The simultaneity of near and far confused me; I thought it possible to find the past, the present and the future united in one place, giving it all that life can hold; but I had grave doubts that at any given moment life might reign both here and there, on this side and that side of the seas and mountains. And such doubts, demanding resolution, may have inspired earliest journeys: I went forth, not to learn what fear was but to test what the names held and feel their magic in the flesh, just as, at the open window, you feel the miraculous power of the sun youd long seen reflected on distant hills and spread on dewy meadows."

Quotes About Christian Traditions

"The disobedience if Eve in the Genesis story has been used to justify womens inequality and suffering in many Christian traditions. Thus, what is understood as womens complicity in evil leads much traditional theological reflection on suffering to offer the "consequent admonition to grin and bear it because such is the deserved place of women." Similarly, when Jesus is seen as a divine co-sufferer, the potentially liberating narratives of Jesus as a revolutionary leader who takes the side of the poor and dispossessed can be ignored in favor of religious beliefs more interested in Jesus as a stoic victim. Christs suffering is inverted and used to justify womens continued suffering in systems of injustice by framing it as redemptive." - Author: Melissa V. Harris Perry

"His fingers gouged into my leg harder. "My sister was in that cafeteria," he said. "She saw her friends die, thanks to you and that puke boyfriend of yours. She still has nightmares about it.

Where is Jessica, if she wants you here so bad? Even the friends you came here with dont want to be with you.""Let go of me," I said again, pulling on his fingers. But he only pinched tighter."Your boyfriend isnt the only one who can get his hands on a gun," he said. Slowly he eased himself up to standing again. He reached into the waistband of his jeans and pulled out something small and dark. He pointed it at me, and when the moonlight hit it, I gasped and pressed myself against the barn wall." - Author: Jennifer Brown

Quotes About Influential Books

"Two of the most famous Baghdadi scholars, the philosopher Al-Kindi and the mathematician Al-Khawarizmi, were certainly the most influential in transmitting Hindu numerals to the Muslim world. Both wrote books on the subject during al-Mamuns reign, and it was their work that was translated into Latin and transmitted to the West, thus introducing Europeans to the decimal system, which was known in the Middle Ages only as Arabic numerals. But it would be many centuries before it was widely accepted in Europe. One reason for this was sociological: decimal numbers were considered for a long time as symbols of the evil Muslim foe." - Author: Jim Al Khalili
