1. "Toddlers can make you feel as if you have violated some archaic law in their personal Koran and you should die, infidel."
Author: Anne Lamott
2. "We are social animals. We like to feel a part of something of beauty and power that transcends our insignificance. It can be a religion, a political party, a ball club. Why not also Nature? I feel a strong identity with the world of living things. I was born into it; we all were. But we may not feel the ties unless we gain intimacy by seeing, feeling, smelling, touching and studying the natural world. Trying to live in harmony with the dictates of nature is probably as inspirational as living in harmony with the Koran or the Bible. Perhaps it is also a timely undertaking."
Author: Bernd Heinrich

5. "On the World Fantasy Award: The award is a bust of H.P. Lovecraft, a notable author but also notorious racist. Nnedi Okorafor, who won the award in 2011, wrote that she approved of China Miéville's solution, who claims: "I put it out of sight, in my study, where only I can see it, and I have turned it to face the wall. So I am punishing the little fucker like the malevolent clown he was, I can look at it and remember the honour, and above all I am writing behind Lovecraft's back."
Author: China Miéville
6. "I would be quite content to go to their children's bar mitzvahs, to marvel at their Gothic cathedrals, to 'respect' their belief that the Koran was dictated, though exclusively in Arabic, to an illiterate merchant, or to interest myself in Wicca and Hindu and Jain consolations. And as it happens, I will continue to do this without insisting on the polite reciprocal condition - which is that they in turn leave me alone. But this, religion is ultimately incapable of doing."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
7. "Any Westerner can now buy a Koran for a dollar and burn it, while any Muslim with a platform can transform that act into a fighting offense. As passions rise on both sides of the divide, Western provocateurs and Islamist hotheads have found each other, as confrontations occur with increasing frequency."
Author: Daniel Pipes
8. "Pametni ljudi su vec sve rekli o Prvim Koracima i na Zemlji i na Mesecu i teško da bih ja tu išta mogao da dodam. Jedino možda da tim koracima nikako ne smeš zakoraciti Od Sebe No to se verovatno podrazumeva. To i nije neka mudrost."
Author: Ðorde Balaševic
9. "Ljuta si na sebe, jer ti nedostajem, prznice mala. Nedostajem i sebi otkad smo sazvežde podelili, pa svako gazduje svojom samocom…Budalo jedna, nemaš pojma koliko te volim, ovako budalast.I drugi su blesavi, al' ne umeju k'o ja da lepo popricaju sa tobom kada te nema, ni da poskakuju trotoarom u pokušaju da usklade korak sa tobom, nevidljivom…Žao mi što nisi tu, da vidiš kako je lepo sa tobom."
Author: Ðorde Balaševic
10. "Ti ljupko oblikovani primjerci ljudske vrste u ovom prigradskom kmu rade svoj posao ne pokazujuci nikakve znakove boli, cak ni bilo kakve naznake da bi mogli osjetiti bol. Kao da su od gume. Bol je samo posljedica volje za užitkom, za razaranjem, uništavanjem i napokon, u svojem najsavršenijem obliku, neka vrsta užitka. Erika bi rado prekoracila granicu vlastitog uništenja. U nespretnim ševama prigradskih kina ima puno više nade da ce glumci osjetiti bol, da ce njihova lica ukrasiti izraz boli. Ti jadni, otrcani naturšcici s puno se više ljubavi unose u svoj posao jer su puno zahvalniji da mogu nastupiti u pra¬vom filmu. Puni su nedostataka, na koži im se vide mrlje, prištevi, ožiljci, bore, kraste, celulit i naslage sala. Kosa im je loše obojena. Znojni su. Prljavih nogu. U estetski zahtjevnim filmovima u tapeciranim kinima u središtu grada može se vidjeti samo površina muškaraca i žena. I jedni i drugi kao da su presvuceni najlonskom opnom otpornom na prljavštinu."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
11. "Covjek može uciniti sudbonosni korak mimo svakog smisla, a možda i u inat svakome smislu, narocito ako je taj covjek žena."
Author: Fazil Iskander
12. "Koran says whoever believes in God in the last day shall be saved. It is a religion whose very name, Islam, comes from the word Shalom, which means peace. It's about establishing peace. We greet each other with peace be upon you, which the Jews do in greeting each other."
Author: Feisal Abdul Rauf
13. "By the last decades of the 21st century, church worship will still take the form of reading passages of traditional texts - the Bible, the Koran, the Rig Veda - but physicist-priests will preside over the ceremonies."
Author: Frank Tipler
14. "Prvi korak je, da se zacnete zavedati, kaj cutite. Ce se poglobite v svoje obcutke, vas bo to privedlo do njihovega vira. Samo s pomocjo custev lahko spoznate polje sile svoje lastne duše."
Author: Gary Zukav
15. "Just as the Torah and Bible teach concern for those in distress, the Koran instructs all Muslims to make caring for widows, orphans, and refugees a priority."
Author: Greg Mortenson
16. "We can be reluctant to recognize how much of our culture was literary, particularly now that so many of the institutional purveyors of literature happily have joined in proclaiming its death. A substantial number of Americans who believe they worship God actually worship three major literary characters: the Yahweh of the J Writer (earliest author of Genesis, Exodus, Numbers), the Jesus of the Gospel of Mark, and Allah of the Koran."
Author: Harold Bloom
17. "Dok god muzika svira, igraj dok te noge nose. Razumes li sta ti govorim? Igraj dok te noge nose. Ne smes da razmisljas zasto igras. Ne smes da razmisljas o znacenju toga. Jer, u osnovi, znacenja nema. Pocnes li da razmisljas, noge ce ti se zaustaviti. Zaustave li ti se jednom noge, ja tu vise nista ne mogu. Tvoje veze ce nestati. Nestace zauvek! I vise neces moci da zivis nigde drugde osim u ovom svetu. Brzo ces biti uvucen u ovaj svet. Zato noge ne smeju da ti se zaustave. Koliko god ti se cinilo besmisleno, ne smes da mislis na to. Prati korake i igraj dok te noge nose. A ono otvrdlo razmeksaj, makar malo. Mora da je ostalo i nesto za sta jos nije prekasno. Upotrebi sve sto se moze upotrebiti. Ucini sve sto mozes. Nema cega da se plasis. Svakako si umoran. Umoran si i uplasen. Svi imaju takve trenutke. Cini ti se da je sve pogesno. I noge ti se zaustave."
Author: Haruki Murakami
18. "A gun is more important here than the Koran."
Author: Jameson Currier
19. "In the Koran, the first thing God said to Muhammed was 'Read."
Author: Jeanette Winter
20. "They say that Caliph Omar, when consulted about what had to be done with the library of Alexandria, answered as follows: 'If the books of this library contain matters opposed to the Koran, they are bad and must be burned. If they contain only the doctrine of the Koran, burn them anyway, for they are superfluous.' Our learned men have cited this reasoning as the height of absurdity. However, suppose Gregory the Great was there instead of Omar and the Gospel instead of the Koran. The library would still have been burned, and that might well have been the finest moment in the life of this illustrious pontiff."
Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau
21. "I am consciously not trying to bring in World Music elements. The ways that I work and feel are completely different in how they sound than someone playing the Kora in Africa would play it."

Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
23. "We took the liberty to make some enquiries concerning the ground of their pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. The Ambassador [of Tripoli] answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.{Letter from the commissioners, John Adams & Thomas Jefferson, to John Jay, 28 March 1786}"
Author: John Adams
24. "One of the most interesting histories of what comes of rejecting science we may see in Islam, which in the beginning received, accepted, and even developed the classical legacy. For some five or six rich centuries there is an impressive Islamic record of scientific thought, experiment, and research, particularly in medicine. But then, alas! the authority of the general community, the Sunna, the consensus—which Mohammed the Prophet had declared would always be right—cracked down. The Word of God in the Koran was the only source and vehicle of truth. Scientific thought led to 'loss of belief in the origin of the world and in the Creator.' And so it was that, just when the light of Greek learning was beginning to be carried from Islam to Europe—from circa 1100 onward—Islamic science and medicine came to a standstill and went dead...."
Author: Joseph Campbell
25. "Die Schönheiten dieser neuen Gegenden setzten mich über die Maßen in Erstaunen. Prachtvolle Gestaltungen, Lagen und Stellungen der Eisblöcke. Hier sahen sie aus wie eine orientalische Stadt mit zahllosen Minaretts und Moscheen; dort wie eine durch Erdbeben zerfallene Stadt. Ansichten, die in den schief fallenden Sonnenstrahlen unaufhörlich wechselten oder inmitten der Schneestürme sich in graue Nebel verloren. Dann allerwärts polterndes Zusammenstürzen hinpurzelnder Eisberge mit wechselnden Dekorationen wie in einem Diorama."
Author: Jules Verne
26. "Kada otvorim vrata i pojavim se na stepeništu, znacu da dole pocinje ulica. Ali ne kalup, unapred prihvacen, niti dobro poznate kuce, ni onaj hotel preko puta, nego ulica, gaj pun života, gde svaki trenutak može pasti na mene u obliku cveta magnolije, i gde ce se lica radati pod mojim pogledom, kada ucinim sledeci korak, kada laktovima i trepavicama i noktima razbijem masu staklene cigle, i reskiram svoj život da bih korak po korak otišao i skupio novine na uglu."
Author: Julio Cortázar
27. "The Kazi is searching the words of the Koran, and instructing others: but if his heart be not steeped in that love, what does it avail, though he be a teacher of men?"
Author: Kabir
28. "Ibn al-Arabi gave this advice:Do not attach yourself to any particular creed exclusively, so that you may disbelieve all the rest; otherwise you will lose much good, nay, you will fail to recognize the real truth of the matter. God, the omnipresent and omnipotent, is not limited by any one creed, for he says, 'Wheresoever ye turn, there is the face of Allah' (Koran 2:109). Everyone praises what he believes; his god is his own creature, and in praising it he praises himself. Consequently, he blames the disbelief of others, which he would not do if he were just, but his dislike is based on ignorance."
Author: Karen Armstrong
29. "Laila's warning from Wajma: This is why the Holy Koran forbids sharab. Because it always falls on the sober to pay for the sins of the drunk."
Author: Khaled Hosseini
30. "That night, I waited until Baba fell asleep, and then folded a blanket. I used it as a prayer rug. Bowing my head to the ground, I recited half-forgotten verses from the Koran-verses the mullah had made us commit to memory in Kabul-and asked for kindness from a god I wasn't sure existed. I envied the mullah now, envied his faith and certainty."
Author: Khaled Hosseini
31. "In the year Ten Million, according to Koradubian, there would be a tremendous house-cleaning. All records relating to the period between the death of Christ and the year One Million A.D. would be hauled to the dumps and burned. This would be done, said Koradubian, because museums and archives would be crowding the living right off the Earth. The million-year period to which the burned junk related would be summed up in history books in one sentence, according to Koradubian: Following the death of Jesus Christ, there was a period of readjustment that lasted for approximately one million years."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
32. "Where was this written? I wondered. Where in the Talmud or the Koran or the Bible did it say, "Lo, and Satan fetcheth the coffee for the Antichrist and her minions"?"
Author: Lyda Morehouse
33. "Lehet, hogy valaha szebb nore bukkansz nálam – bár hajdan azt hajtogattad, én se vagyok éppen rút! –, de senki szívében nem találsz majd akkora szenvedélyt, mint az enyémben. Azt hiszed, számít más? Semmi, csak ez."
Author: Mariana Alcoforado
34. "So where does the name Adam's apple come from? Most people say that it is from the notion that this bump was caused by the forbidden fruit getting stuck in the throat of Adam in the Garden of Eden. There is a problem with this theory because some Hebrew scholars believe that the forbidden fruit was the pomegranate. The Koran claims that the forbidden fruit was a banana. So take your pick---Adam's apple, Adam's pomegranate, Adam's banana. Eve clearly chewed before swallowing."
Author: Mark Leyner
35. "Možda bi trebalo da ih mrzim ali ne mogu. Ja nemam dva srca jedno za mržnju drugo za ljubav. Ovo što imam sad zna samo za tugu. Moja molitva i moja pokora moj život i moja smrt sve to pripada Bogu stvoritelju svijeta. Ali moja žalost pripada meni."
Author: Meša Selimović
36. "When you read the Koran, you give up. At least the Bible is very beautiful because Jews have an extraordinary literary talent."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
37. "You claim that the evidentiary miracle is present and available, namely, the Koran. You say: 'Whoever denies it, let him produce a similar one.' Indeed, we shall produce a thousand similar, from the works of rhetoricians, eloquent speakers and valiant poets, which are more appropriately phrased and state the issues more succinctly. They convey the meaning better and their rhymed prose is in better meter. … By God what you say astonishes us! You are talking about a work which recounts ancient myths, and which at the same time is full of contradictions and does not contain any useful information or explanation. Then you say: 'Produce something like it'?"
Author: Muhammad Ibn Zakariya Al Razi
38. "We are warriors of Allah.""You are thugs with Korans."
Author: Nadeem Aslam
39. "I think every religious person should have a deep sense of respect for other people's religious documents and religious symbols just as we were deeply opposed to the Taliban destroying the two historic buddhas which they blew up. So I think we ought to all oppose burning the Koran."
Author: Newt Gingrich
40. "Close your Koran.Think in freedom and look with open mindat Heaven and Earth. Forgive everyone his sins. Don't cause anyone grief."
Author: Omar Khayyam
41. "- Za nas je otkucaj sata, baš kao žuvor šadrvana u dvorištu džamije, odjek zakoracenja u ono što je u nama, a ne zvuk percepcije onoga što je oko nas."
Author: Orhan Pamuk
42. "In the history of the prophetic biblical canon that starts with Genesis, the Koran is by far the most tolerant of the views of other religions."
Author: Reza Aslan
43. "Pac-man got eaten by the red ghost dude."Erre es korakas, Blinky!" Dionyus cursed. "I will have your soul!""Um he's a video game character" I said."Thats no excuse!"
Author: Rick Riordan
44. "Pijesak, kamenje, vjetar, još narancastije nebo, gomila plosnatih oblaka prema kojima je padalo sunce...Potom duge sjene, umiranje vjetra, mir...Samo zvuk kopita na kamenju i zvuci našeg disanja... Prigušeno svjetlo kad se sunce sudarilo s oblacima... Zidovi dana potresani grmljavinom...Neprirodno jasni obrisi udaljenih predmeta... Hladan, elektricno plavi osjecaj u zraku...Opet grmljavina...Sad - uzbiban, staklasti zastor kiše koja mi se približava zdesna... Plave pukotine u oblacima... Temperatura pada, naš korak i dalje stalan, svijet sad posve jednobojan..."
Author: Roger Zelazny
45. "Koranic teaching still insists that the sun moves around the earth. How can we advance when they teach things like that?"
Author: Taslima Nasrin
46. "We will definitely not burn the Koran, no. Not today, not ever."
Author: Terry Jones
47. "Biblical, Talmudic, or Koranic literalists remind me of children wrinkling their noses at Belon oysters and asking for more Chef Boy-E-Dee. They want the world to be as simple as they are."
Author: Tim Kreider
48. "Penekanan al-Quran terhadap hubungan intim antara epistemologi dan aksiologi dan kerohanian bukan bertujuan untuk merubah keobjektifan data dan fakta yang telah disahkan dengan betul. Sebaliknya ia bertujuan untuk memberi petunjuk yang sempurna, hikmah dan makna berhubung pelbagai dimensi usaha-usaha epistemologi. Justeru itu konsep ilmu dalam Islam mempunyai tujuan, yang ekoran daripadanya pula sejajar secara idealnya dengan keperluan-keperluan weltanshauungnya. Pendapat kesemua sarjana Islam adalah tepat bahawa tujuan utama ilmu adalah untuk mengenali Allah. Walaupun mereka berselisih tentang darjah-darjah ilmu ini."
Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
49. "All was there—the programme of German resurrection, the technique of party propaganda; the plan for combating Marxism; the concept of a National-Socialist State; the rightful position of Germany at the summit ofthe world. Here was the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message."
Author: Winston Churchill
50. "Try to remember some details. For the worldis filled with people who were torn from their sleepwith no one to mend the tear,and unlike wild beasts they liveeach in his lonely hiding place and they dietogether on battlefieldsand in hospitals.And the earth will swallow all of them,good and evil together, like the followers of Korah,all of them in their rebellion against death,their mouths open till the last moment,praising and cursing in a singlehowl. Try, tryto remember some details."
Author: Yehuda Amichai
