Famous quotes containing the words crime, lord and/or arthur:

    Give a scientist a problem and he will probably provide a solution; historians and sociologists, by contrast, can offer only opinions. Ask a dozen chemists the composition of an organic compound such as methane, and within a short time all twelve will have come up with the same solution of CH4. Ask, however, a dozen economists or sociologists to provide policies to reduce unemployment or the level of crime and twelve widely differing opinions are likely to be offered.
    Derek Gjertsen, British scientist, author. Science and Philosophy: Past and Present, ch. 3, Penguin (1989)

    I have defeated them all.... I was left with some money to battle with the world when quite young, and at the present time have much to feel proud of.... The Lord gave me talent, and I know I have done good with it.... For my brains have made me quite independent and without the help of any man.
    Harriet A. Brown, U.S. inventor and educator. As quoted in Feminine Ingenuity, ch. 8, by Anne L. MacDonald (1992)

    Muhammad is the Messenger of God,
    and those who are with him are hard
    against the unbelievers, merciful
    one to another. Thou seest them
    bowing, prostrating, seeking bounty
    from God and good pleasure. Their
    mark is on their faces, the trace of
    prostration....
    God has promised
    those of them who believe and do deeds
    of righteousness forgiveness and
    a mighty wage.
    Qur’An. Victory 48:35, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
