Esra Nuray Sezer Quotes

"Veoma je čudan i besmislen čovjek koji, kada vidi svoje nedostatke, ne učini istigfar, koji sa SubhanAllah ne obznani savršena djela svojega Gospodara, koji naspram Njegove veličine ne kaže Allahu ekber i ne ode na rukju da mu se predano pomoli i koji mu na Njegove blagodati ne zahvaljuje sa Elhamdullilah."

Alice Meynell Quotes

"It is easy to replace man, and it will take no great time, when Nature has lapsed, to replace Nature."

Al Hanouf Halawi Quotes

"When you have to made a decision, theres no return, keep this in your mind."

Peter Viereck Quotes

"What keeps earth air breathable? Not oxygen alone. The earth is a freer place to breathe in, every time you love without calculating a return -- every time you make your drudgeries and routines still more inefficient by stopping to experience the shock of beauty wherever it unpredictably flickers."

Susan Voth Quotes

Moacyr Scliar Quotes

"...he would tell stories about the Holy City, about Solomon, a just king, a poet-king, a monarch with a thousand concubines. We werent quite sure what concubines were, but we guessed: a concubine ... Concubines! One thousand! One thousand women in all colours and shapes - but all of them sexy, of course - one thousand - one thousand raving beauties lying side by side on a bed (what a bed! How wide it must have been!), all of them smiling, all of them reaching out their arms, all of them saying something in Hebrew - but the meaning was unmistakeable - "Come here, sweety." One thousand women. If one were to spend twenty, or fifteen minutes with each one of them, how long would it take to...? A problem that our math teacher never assigned us for homework...!"

Rob Brezsny Quotes

"The Sun, each second, transforms four million tons of itself into light, giving itself over to become energy that we, with every meal, partake of. For four million years, humans have been feasting on the Suns energy stored in the form of wheat or reindeer. Brian Swimme"

Kristen Britain Quotes

"Do whatever you must, Karigan," he told her, his voice so quiet it would not carry, "to come back. You must come back. To me." ~King Zachary"

Quotes About Where Your Heart Belongs

"Where will I find you now that my heart is yours?Where should I search? I dont know where to look.You fill my heart with desire and love,The perfume of the lotus, the grace of a dove.But then the dove flies far, far away,All that is left is a song for my harp strings to play.A voice in my memories like an angel of grace,Where can I find you? Do you know how I pray?Where will I find you now that my love belongs to you?Wherever your heart beats, Im dreaming of you.Now and forever my love belongs to you…Now and forever my love belongs to you…" - Author: Bjorn Street

Quotes About Sambit

"Sambit Bal may be right that this is a scandal the IPL needed. It certainly brings fans face-to-face with the tangled reality of their amusement, based as it is on a self-seeking, self-perpetuating commercial oligarchy issued licenses to exploit cricket as they please. Whether the fans care is another matter: one of the reasons Indians have embraced economic liberalisation so fervently is a shoulder-shrugging resignation about the efficiency and integrity of their institutions. Given the choice between Lalit Modi, with his snappy suits and his soi-disant Indian Peoples League, and the BCCI, stuffed with grandstanding politicians and crony capitalists, where would your loyalties lie?" - Author: Gideon Haigh

Quotes About Stomach Pain

"Compassion is a wonderful thing. Its what one feels when one looks at a squashed caterpillar. An elevating experience. One can let oneself go and spread--you know, like taking a girdle off. You dont have to hold your stomach, your heart or your spirit up--when you feel compassion. All you have to do is look down. Its much easier. When you look up, you get a pain in the neck. Compassion is the greatest virtue. It justifies suffering. Theres got to be suffering in the world, else how would we be virtuous and feel compassion?... Oh, it has an antithesis--but such a hard, demanding one... Admiration, Mrs. Jones, admiration. But that takes more than a girdle... So I say that anyone for whom we cant feel sorry is a vicious person. Like Howard Roark." - Author: Ayn Rand
