[When He Looked Up, He Said, "Clare Told Me About Christmas." And I Swear The Boy's Face Began To Shine. I Recognized What I Saw There: That A Person's Name Could Be Infinitely Precious, That Just Saying It Could Make You Feel Singled Out For Glory.]

Benedict Anderson Quotes

"I propose the following definition of the nation: it is an imagined political community-and imagined as both inherently limited and sovereign. It is imagined because the members of even the smallest nation will never know most of their fellow-members, meet them, or even hear of them, yet in the minds of each lives the image of their communion.... Communities are to be distinguished, not by their falsity/genuineness, but by the style in which they are imagined.... Finally, [the nation] is imagined as a community, because, regardless of the actual inequality and exploitation that may prevail in each, the nation is conceived as a deep, horizontal comradeship. Ultimately, it is this fraternity that makes it possible, over the past two centuries for so many millions of people, not so much to kill, as willing to die for such limited imaginings."

Shannon Lucid Quotes

"I try to tell the people that are sort of new here when they come in and do their flights and whatever, the things that you remember most after your flights are the interactions youve had with your crew. Those are the most satisfying things you take away from a flight."

Don Wilton Quotes

"The author charted the importance of human examples on his spiritual journey, confessing that when harsh and domineering people based their bullying on Christs authority, he rebelled. But when his wife represented the gracefulness of Christs character, he was drawn back to know Christ more fully."

Tom McNeal Quotes

"You know, for a while there we kept horses for the boys, and we had a mare that had broken down. Couldnt ride it... You could feed it and brush it and water it and all. Sometimes, Ive thought thats what most marriages get to. A horse you still care a little about but cannot any longer ride."

Umar Inuwa Saeed Kibiya Quotes

"Sometimes to comprehend ones message you have to use mirror or a water."

RK Narayan Quotes

"The faint aroma of gum and calico that hangs about a library is as the fragrance of incense to me. I think the most beautiful sight is the gilt-edged backs of a row of books on a shelf. The alley between two well-stocked shelves in a hall fills me with the same delight as passing through a silent avenue of trees. The colour of a binding-cloth and its smooth texture gives me the same pleasure as touching a flower on its stalk. A good library hall has an atmosphere which elates. I have seen one or two University Libraries that have the same atmosphere as a chapel, with large windows, great trees outside, and glass doors sliding on noiseless hinges."

Quotes About Famous Institutions

"After all, we are all immigrants to the future; none of us is a native in that land. Margaret Mead famously wrote about the profound changes wrought by the Second World War, "All of us who grew up before the war are immigrants in time, immigrants from an earlier world, living in an age essentially different from anything we knew before." Today we are again in the early stages of defining a new age. The very underpinnings of our society and institutions--from how we work to how we create value, govern, trade, learn, and innovate--are being profoundly reshaped by amplified individuals. We are indeed all migrating to a new land and should be looking at the new landscape emerging before us like immigrants: ready to learn a new language, a new way of doing things, anticipating new beginnings with a sense of excitement, if also with a bit of understandable trepidation." - Author: Marina Gorbis
