"We want character but without unyielding conviction; we want strong morality but without the emotional burden of guilt or shame; we want virtue but without particular moral justifications that invariably offend; we want good without having to name evil; we want decency without the authority to insist upon it; we want more community without any limitations to personal freedom. In short, we want what we cannot possibly have on the terms that we want it."

Quotes About Terrestres

"Ocasionalmente recibo una carta de alguien que está en «contacto» con extraterrestres. Se me invita a «preguntarles cualquier cosa». A lo largo de los años he preparado una lista de preguntas. No debemos olvidar que los extraterrestres están muy avanzados. Pregunto, por tanto, cosas como «Por favor, proporcióneme una prueba corta del último teorema de Fermat». O de la conjetura de Goldbach... Nunca recibo una respuesta. Por otro lado, si pregunto algo como «¿deberíamos ser buenos?», casi siempre recibo una respuesta. Estos alienígenas siempre están dispuestos a responder a cualquier cosa vaga, especialmente si involucra los clásicos juicios emocionales. Pero sobre algo específico, en lo que hay una oportunidad de descubrir si realmente saben algo más allá de lo que la mayoría de los humanos saben, solo hay silencio." - Author: Richard Dawkins

Quotes About Serpents

"Let me explain: there are dragons, and then there are drakons. Drakons are several millennia older than dragons, andmuch larger. They look like giant serpents. Most dont have wings. Most dont breathe fire (though some do). All are poisonous. All are immensely strong, with scales harder than titanium. Their eyes can paralyze you; not the turn-you~to-stone Medusa-type paralysis, buttheoh~my~gods-that~big~snake~is~going~to~eat~me type of paralysis, which is just as bad." - Author: Rick Riordan

Quotes About Harmonious Relationship

"Were in our own world, and were in the world that has been given us outside, and the problem is to achieve3 a harmonious relationship between the two. I come into this society, so Ive got to live in terms of this society. Its ridiculous not to live in terms of this society because, unless I do, Im not living. But I mustnt allow this society to dictate to me how I should live. One has to build up ones own system that may violate the expectations of the society, and sometimes society doesnt accept that. But the task of life is to live within the field provided by the society that is really supporting you." - Author: Joseph Campbell

Quotes About Anthem

"I hate America. I hate this country. Its just big ideas, and stories, and people dying, and people like you. The white cracker who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word free to a note so high nobody can reach it. That was deliberate. Nothing on earth sounds less like freedom to me. You come to room 1013 over at the hospital, Ill show you America. Terminal, crazy and mean. I live in America, thats hard enough, I dont have to love it. You do that. Everybodys got to love something." - Author: Tony Kushner

Quotes About Egypt

"If he were allowed contact with foreigners he would discover that they are creatures similar to himself and that most of what he has been told about them is lies. The sealed world in which he lives would be broken, and the fear, hatred, and self-righteousness on which his morale depends might evaporate. It is therefore realized on all sides that however ofter Persia, or Egypt, or Java, or Ceylon may change hands, the main frontiers must never be crossed by anything except bombs." - Author: George Orwell

Quotes About God And Islam

"Many historians regard him [Offa] as the most powerful Anglo-Saxon king before Alfred the Great. In the 780s he extended his power over most of Southern England. One of the most remarkable extantfrom King Offas reign is a gold coin that is kept in the British Museum. On one side, it carries the inscription Offa Rex (Offa the King). But, turn it over and you are in for a surprise, for in badly copied Arabic are the words La Illaha Illa Allah (There is no god but Allah alone). This coin is a copy of an Abbasid dinarfrom the reign of Al-Mansur, dating to 773, and was most probably used by Anglo-Saxon traders. It would have been known even in Anglo-Saxon England that Islamic gold dinars were the most important coinage in the world at that time and Offas coin looked enough like the original that it would have been readily accepted abroad." - Author: Jim Al Khalili
