توفيق الحكيم

هل يستطيع القفاز أن يحرك شيئا أو يقبض على شئ بغير أصابع في داخله ؟ ..”
توفيق الحكيم, شجرة الحكم

Robert M. Pirsig
“I talked yesterday about caring, I care about these moldy old riding gloves. I smile at them flying through the breeze beside me because they have been there for so many years and are so old and so tired and so rotten there is something kind of humorous about them. They have become filled with oil and sweat and dirt and spattered bugs and now when I set them down flat on a table, even when they are not cold, they won't stay flat. They've got a memory of their own. They cost only three dollars and have been restitched so many times it is getting impossible to repair them, yet I take a lot of time and pains to do it anyway because I can't imagine any new pair taking their place. That is impractical, but practicality isn't the whole thing with gloves or with anything else.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

Israelmore Ayivor
“Those who see poverty looking for human slaves to capture, will tell you they saw him holding the handcuffs of laziness.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Ladder

Israelmore Ayivor
“Don't be a patron of disbelief; nobody fights and wins battles in the hand gloves of doubts.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream
