Ruby Bridges Quotes

Ruby Bridges Quotes

The 10 best Ruby Bridges Quotes :

1)”All that Ruby said was so horribly true, she was leaving everything she cared for. She had laid up her treasures on earth only. She had lived solely for the little things of life, the things that pass, forgetting the great things that go onward into eternity bridging the gulf between the two lives and making of death a mere passing of one dwelling to the other. From twilight to unclouded day. …it was no wonder her soul clung in blind helplessness to the only things she knew and loved.”

2)”The only bad thing about burning your bridges behind you is that the world is round.”

3)”We’ve never had nannies. We’ve had great grandparents, great support from family, and the kids have been on every set: they’ve seen me play Gollum, King Kong, Captain Haddock, the lot. They totally get it, and they want to go into the business. Ruby, my daughter, is very keen to become an actress.”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes

4 Jun , 2015  

The 10 best Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes :

1)”Of course, the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not terrorists or sympathetic to terrorists. Equating all Muslims with terrorism is stupid and wrong. But acknowledging that there is a link between Islam and terror is appropriate and necessary.”

2)”The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.”

3)”Avoiding offense means that we don’t accept each other as equals.”

2)”Real manhood is not raping or molesting the girls; real manhood is respecting the girls and giving them freedom to live the way they want.”

3)”I play a character every day of my life, and I don’t want to play a character as myself. They can judge me as an actress, not as a person. I’m not a spokeswoman for Anna.”
