Leo Batic Quotes

"-He leído muchos libros sobre gente con viviones, capacidades extra sensoriales o poderes desconocidos para el resto, y he sacado dos conclusiones.-¿Cuáles?-Una es que los hombres tenemos muchas capacidades pero les tenemos miedo.Preferimos ser todos iguales antes que poseer un poder que el resto no comprenda. Un talento no es algo peligroso. Por el contrario. Todos tenemos un don particular, único. Este mundo está hecho por la gente que no se conformó con lo establecido. Ingenieros, médicos, artistas, siempre aparece alguien que logra captar algo que para el resto es inaccesible..."

Quotes About Current Issues

"As a human, I am flawed in that it is difficult for me to consider others before myself.

Quotes About Tulisan

"Wahai saudara yang budiman, raja (pemimpin) dalam alam ada tiga perkara, pangkat raja ada tiga macam. Yang memegang lahir dalam negeri lahir saja, yang perintah atas rakyat hukum adat kebiasaan dunia, itulah raja dalam alam yang memegang lahir saja. Wajib kita ikut seperti yang diperintahkannya, jika bersatu dengan agama. Perihal tidak bersatu dengan syara (agama), janganlah kita turut seperti apa yang dikatakannya. Kedua, bagi raja yang memerintah hukum batin, yang memerintah jalan agama, itulah ahlus syariah, tempat yang memegang jalan agama. Wajib kita ikuti apa yang disuruhnya, siapa yang tidak patuh akan mendapat bala."(dikutip dari tulisan Teuku Ibrahim Alfian, dalam "Mengenal Masyarakat Aceh yang Sedang Membangun")" - Author: Teuku Kutakarang Syaikh

Quotes About Pulling Through

"Day one, the van broke down. It was so cold the accelerator cable froze, so when Tony [Iommi] put his foot down it snapped in half. Which meant we were stranded in the middle of f**king nowhere, halfway to Copenhagen. There was a blizzard outside, but Tony said it was my job – as the bands ‘public representative – to go and find some help. So out I walked into this field, snow blowing into my face, two icicles of snot hanging out of my nose, until finally I saw the lights of a farmhouse up ahead. Then I fell into a trench. After finally pulling myself out of the f**king thing, I waded through the snow until I reached the front door, then knocked loudly.‘Halløj? said the big, red-faced Eskimo bloke who opened the door.‘Oh, thank f**k, I said.[...]‘Halløj?I didnt know any Danish, so I pointed towards the road, and said, ‘Van. El kaputski. Ya?" - Author: Ozzy Osbourne

Quotes About Unbelieving

"... no sensitive Christian can be satisfied with a distinction between righteousness and unrighteousness drawn only between communities, with each individual belonging unambiguously on one or the other side of the line. The behavior of "the righteous" is often very disappointing, while "the unrighteous" regularly perform in a manner that is much better than our theology might lead us to expect of them. Thus the need for a perspective that allows for both a rather slow process of sanctification in the Christian life and some sort of divine restraint on the power of sin in the unbelieving community. These theological adjustments to a religious perspective that might otherwise betray strong Manichean tones provide us with yet another reason for openness to a broad-ranging dialogue: Christians have good grounds for believing that their own weakness can be corrected by encountering the strengths of others." - Author: Richard J. Mouw

Quotes About Sticking To The Plan

"a whole lot of ideas isnt a plan. A plan is a bunch of details that mesh with one another, so you go from this step to this step like crossing a stream on a lot of little boulders sticking out, and never fall in. Ideas without a plan is usually just enough boulders to get you into the deep part of the stream, and no way to get back." - Author: Donald E. Westlake
