I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother – a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."

Streaker, the housemaid, feigned cheerfulness, but was the greater martyr. The Odd Girl, who had never been in the country, alone was pleased, and made arrangements for sowing an acorn in the garden outside the scullery window, and rearing an oak."
Author: Charles Dickens

17. "[The Devil] A new method, sir: when you've completely lost faith in me, then you'll immediately start convincing me to my face that I am not a dream but a reality--I know you now; and then my goal will be achieved. And it is a noble goal. I will sow just a tiny seed of faith in you, and from it an oak will grow--and such an oak that you, sitting in that oak, will want to join 'the desert fathers and the blameless women'; because secretly you want that very ver-ry much, you will dine on locusts, you will drag yourself to the desert to seek salvation!"
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
18. "Much on earth is concealed from us, but in place of it we have been granted a secret, mysterious sense of our living bond with the other world, with the higher heavenly world, and the roots of our thoughts and feelings are not here but in other worlds. That is why philosophers say it is impossible on earth to conceive the essence of things. God took seeds from other worlds and sowed them on this earth, and raised up his garden; and everything that could sprout sprouted, but it lives and grows only through its sense of being in touch with other mysterious worlds; if this sense is weakened or destroyed in you, that which has grown up in you dies. Then you become indifferent to life, and even come to hate it."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Author: Howard Zinn
21. "Sow the right words! Think the good thought."
Author: Jaachynma N.E. Agu
22. "Landmines distinguish themselves because once they have been sown, once the soldier walks away from the weapon, the landmine cannot tell the difference between a soldier or a civilian - a woman, a child, a grandmother going out to collect firewood to make the family meal."
Author: Jody Williams
23. "Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth." Psalm 127:4Arrows in the wrong hands can cause a lot of destruction. Well-trained arrows, however, can save a nation. No arrow will change course mid-flight. I am not saying that a right environment guarantees our children's salvation. It most certainly does not. Children are born sinners. We do however, give them a great head start by helping them to curb passions and learn self-control and other godly traits. They must ultimately repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for personal salvation, and they will still deal with sin as we all must. We do, however, prepare the soil for receiving the seed of God's word. Seed sown in good soil will bear much fruit."
Author: Joseph Stephen
24. "There's no regret. You can't regret. I mean, I've felt regret but I've also refused to allow regret to sow a seed and live in me because I don't believe it. You feel it, it's like guilt, it's like jealousy, it's like all those horrible things. You've just got to snip them and get them out, because they're no good."
Author: Jude Law

Author: Keri Wyatt Kent
27. "Da wir heute jedoch in einer zunehmend säkularisierten Gesellschaft leben und das virtuelle Universum sich immer weiter ausdehnt, haben wir es mit einer völlig anderen Spezies zu tun: mit Popstars und Schauspielern sowie Medien- und Videospielmonguln, die statt Würde auszustrahlen, diese nun auf dem Altar der kreativen Schizophrenie opfern."
Author: Kevin Dutton
28. "The seeds of greatness are sown in ordinary soil."

29. "It was that time of the year, the turning-point of summer, when the crops of the present year are a certainty, when one begins to think of the sowing for next year, and the mowing is at hand; when the rye is all in ear, though its ears are still light, not yet full, and it waves in gray-green billows in the wind; when the green oats, with tufts of yellow grass scattered here and there among it, droop irregularly over the late-sown fields; when the early buckwheat is already out and hiding the ground; when the fallow lands, trodden hard as stone by the cattle, are half ploughed over, with paths left untouched by the plough; when from the dry dung-heaps carted onto the fields there comes at sunset a smell of manure mixed with meadow-sweet, and on the low-lying lands the riverside meadows are a thick sea of grass waiting for the mowing, with blackened heaps of the stalks of sorrel among it."
Author: Leo Tolstoy

34. "Speaking does harm, sows confusion and weakens things that are obvious. Speaking makes me tremble inside. I don't think I have ever said anything really important in my entire life -- there's a lack of words for the most important things anyway. (I must make a list of missing words -- top of it I'll put a verb that means something in between "I sense" and "I see.")"

37. "Nigdy nie uwazal, ze „czyta" ksiazki. Jezyk byl w tym wypadku równie zdradziecki, jak u hazardzisty, który przechwala sie wygrana partia, tak jakby sila lub determinacja wydarl losowi zwyciestwo, gdy tymczasem szczesliwy rzut sztonami nie byl niczym wiecej, jak tylko udana próba wykorzystania chwili wlasnej bezradnosci. Otwarcie ksiazki zas wiazalo sie z ryzykiem zupelnie innej miary. Otwierajac ksiazke, nie tylko stawal sie bezradny, nie tylko oddawal iles tam zazdrosnie strzezonych uderzen serca wladajacemu piórem obcemu czlowiekowi, lecz pozwalal samego siebie napisac. Czymze jest bowiem lektura ksiegi, jesli nie ciaglym poddawaniem sie nieprzewidywalnym kaprysom duszy jej autora?"
Author: R. Scott Bakker
38. "That truth, by the way, is why even the horror of hell is more the outcome of a heart that seeks to disown God and play God and live eternally with those who do the same than it is retribution against evil. C. S. Lewis once wrote that "there are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.'"46"
Author: Ravi Zacharias
