#1. The art and architecture of the past that we know is that which remains. The best is that which remains where it was painted, placed or built. Most of the art of the past that could be moved was taken by conquerors. Almost all recent art is conquered as soon as it's made, since it's first shown for sale and once sold is exhibited as foreign in the alien museums. The public has no idea of art other than that it is something portable that can be bought. There is no constructive effort; there is no cooperative effort. This situation is primitive in relation to a few earlier and better times. - Author: Donald Judd
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Donald Judd
#2. You don't fight the battles you know you will win, its the ones that everyone says you will lose. - Author: Chris Burkmenn
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Chris Burkmenn
#3. Western engagement with Eastern spirituality dates back at least as far as Alexander's campaign in India, where the young conqueror and his pet philosophers encountered naked ascetics whom they called "gymnosophists." It is often said that the thinking of these yogis greatly influenced the philosopher Pyrrho, the father of Greek skepticism. This seems a credible claim, because Pyrrho's teachings had much in common with Buddhism. But his contemplative insights and methods never became part of any system of thought in the West. - Author: Sam Harris
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Sam Harris
#4. Religion is the organization of spirituality into something that became the hand maiden of conquerors. Nearly all religions were brought to people and imposed on people by conquerors, and used as the framework to control their minds. - Author: John Henrik Clarke
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by John Henrik Clarke
#5. Whatever the gender of the participants, all pornography including male-male gay pornography is an imitation of the male-female, conqueror-victim paradigm, and almost all of it actually portrays or implies enslaved women and master. - Author: Gloria Steinem
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Gloria Steinem
#6. In this the seat our Conqueror has given?
And this the climate we must change for heaven?
These Regions and this realm my wars have got
The mournful Empire is the loser's lot. - Author: John Dryden
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by John Dryden
#7. Out- out are the lights- out all! And, over each quivering form,
The curtain, a funeral pall,
Comes down with the rush of a storm,
While the angels, all pallid and wan,
Uprising, unveiling, affirm
That the play is the tragedy, "Man,"
And its hero the Conqueror Worm. - Author: Edgar Allan Poe
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#8. Nothing should be worshipped [sic] that has form or is individuated. The universal Divine Life is alone to be worshipped. There is no colorless pantheism in this concept; for the God of each man is one with the universal God: the Conqueror obtains the Universe, not by being absorbed and obliterated by it, but by transcending the limitations of his individual consciousness and partaking of the universal Divine Consciousness. As an individual he loses nothing but his imperfections, but he gains the All, the "Origin and the Perfection." And this is Seership, which is not "prophecy," "second sight" or sense-perception on any plane of consciousness, but is Direct Cognition of Reality. - Author: James Morgan Pryse
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by James Morgan Pryse
#9. It is well-known that the friend of a conqueror is but the last victim. - Author: Isaac Asimov
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Isaac Asimov
#10. I will not go so far as to say, with a living poet, that the world knows nothing of its greatest men; but there are forms of greatness, or at least of excellence, which "die and make no sign"; there are martyrs that miss the palm, but not the stake; heroes without the laurel, and conquerors without the triumph. - Author: George Augustus Henry Sala
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by George Augustus Henry Sala
#11. I think that the heroism which at this day would make on us the impression of Epaminondas and Phocion must be that of a domestic conqueror. He who shall bravely and gracefully subdue this Gorgon of Convention and Fashion, and show men how to lead a clean, handsome and heroic life amid the beggarly elements of our cities and villages; whoso shall teach me how to eat my meat and take my repose and deal with men, without any shame following, will restore the life of man to splendor, and make his own name dear to all history. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#12. In that moment, Xcor thought of each of his fighters. Zypher, the sexual conqueror. Balthazar, the thief. Syphon, the assassin. And the other one who had no name, and too many sins to count. So he was referred to as Syn. - Author: J.R. Ward
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by J.R. Ward
#13. I am not a conqueror. I am nothing like you. - Author: Faith Erin Hicks
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Faith Erin Hicks
#14. Just last week I was telling a dear friend how I'd rather not exist in a world where toxic thrives. There are so much enmity plaguing this creed, how we hurt others because we think our idea of faith is supreme, how our interpretation of knowledge is above theirs, how every little whisper we turn into a howl. We forget that only He knows. Our existence are but mysteries; who are we to scar, to burn, to leave marks, to solve this enigma for others, to play God.

The Friday prayer sermon just this afternoon, spoke to me in such illuminating affirmations. Knowledge, especially in faith, is akin to Light. Light binds, not divides. We seek light not out of fear of the darkness but at a promise to gain clarity. This is our intimate journey, how we move towards that Light is ours to make. Like a blind man, like moths at night, a child yearning, just do not stand in their paths, my friend. Your forehead kisses the same Earth like they do, your knees bend the same curve, and each night, your spine collapses just the same. Do not be the lips that question an arm sleeved with tattoos or hair uncovered by cloth or sins not yours, instead be lips that observes silence, kindness and always, prayers for all. I hope your heart does not make space for words like "Kafir", "infidel", "shirk" and instead be a room with gardens and an ocean of calmness. Even our Beloved won't be a judge for another being; Let God

You seek knowledge not to draw boundaries between yourself and - Author: Noor Iskandar
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Noor Iskandar
#15. There are who keep themselves in peace and keep peace also with others, and there are who neither have peace nor suffer others to have peace; they are troublesome to others, but always more troublesome to themselves. And there are who hold themselves in peace, and study to bring others unto peace; nevertheless, all our peace in this sad life lieth in humble suffering rather than in not feeling adversities. He who best knoweth how to suffer shall possess the most peace; that man is conqueror of himself and lord of the world, the friend of Christ, and the inheritor of heaven. - Author: Thomas A Kempis
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#16. Far better was our homely diet, eaten in peace and liberty, than the luxurious dainties, the love of which hath delivered us as bondsmen to the foreign conqueror! - Author: Walter Scott
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Walter Scott
#17. But women are always attracted to power. I do not think there could ever be a conqueror so bloody that most women would not willingly lie with him in the hope of bearing a son who would be every bit as ferocious as the father. - Author: Gore Vidal
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Gore Vidal
#18. The customs of that most criminal nation (Israel) have gained such strength that they have now been received in all lands. The conquered have given laws to the conquerors. - Author: Seneca The Younger
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Seneca The Younger
#19. Begger or rich man, soldier or merchant, Rufus was indestructible, for the man who could laugh at life or death was in the end the only conqueror. - Author: Rosemary Anne Sisson
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Rosemary Anne Sisson
#20. No ruler can ever get far with only militaristic power. The easiest way to conquer is to crush people's faith and convert them to your own ideology, often portraying it as heroic. I am an ambitious man – I am not just a casual pirate to steal only people's riches. I am an emperor – I shall steal people's hearts, hopes, and faith so that they will eventually have no one but me to turn to. If you put yourself in the role of a saviour, people are sure to follow you, just like a pack of lambs always follows a mighty shepherd. - Author: Tamuna Tsertsvadze
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Tamuna Tsertsvadze
#21. The greatest dread of ordinary man is death, with its rude imposition interrupting fortuitous plans and fondest attachments with an unknown and unwelcome change. The yogi is a conqueror of the grief associated with death. By control of mind and life force and the development of wisdom, he makes friends with the change of consciousness called death-he becomes familiar with the state of inner calmness and aloofness from identification with the mortal body. - Author: Paramahansa Yogananda
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#22. Conquer the thousands of man may not be called a winner, but be able to conquer yourself is called a brilliant conqueror! - Author: Sukarno
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Sukarno
#23. The happiest of endings begin with a struggle so embrace yours - Author: Nomzamo Nhlumayo
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Nomzamo Nhlumayo
#24. I'm the Pawn of chess game, whose aim is not to protect the King only but to become the Conqueror. - Author: Samar Sudha
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Samar Sudha
#25. For whoso dies for Christ, he is conqueror and is delivered from all misery and attains the eternal joy to which may it please our Saviour to bring us all. - Author: Jan Hus
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Jan Hus
#26. One way to sum up the new scholarship is to say that it has begun, at last, to fill in one of the biggest blanks in history: the Western Hemisphere before 1492. It was, in the current view, a thriving, stunning diverse place, a tumult of languages, trade, and culture, a regiin where tens of millions of people loved and hated and worshipped as people do everywhere. Much of this world vanished after Columbus, swept away by disease and subjugation. So thorough was the erasure that within a few generations neither conqueror nor conquered knew that this world had existed. Now, though, it is returning to view. It seems incumbent on us to take a look. - Author: Charles C. Mann
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Charles C. Mann
#27. Do not ever threaten an Afghan with violence. We will rise as one and we will face every threat the way we have taken on thousands of previous armies and conquerors. - Author: Ashraf Ghani
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Ashraf Ghani
#28. In most cases the name is unpoetical, although the fact is poetical. In the case of Smith, the name is so poetical that it must be an arduous and heroic matter for the man to live up to it. The name of Smith is the name of the one trade that even kings respected; it could claim half the glory of that arma virumque which all epics acclaimed. The spirit of the smithy is so close to the spirit of song that it has mixed in a million poems, and every blacksmith is a harmonious blacksmith.

Even the village children feel that in some dim way the smith is poetic, as the grocer and the cobbler are not poetic, when they feast on the dancing sparks and deafening blows in the cavern of that creative violence. The brute repose of Nature, the passionate cunning of man, the strongest of earthly metals, the weirdest of earthly elements, the unconquerable iron subdued by its only conqueror, the wheel and the ploughshare, the sword and the steam-hammer, the arraying of armies and the whole legend of arms, all these things are written, briefly indeed, but quite legibly, on the visiting-card of Mr. Smith. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#29. The man who has grit enough to bring about the afforestation or the irrigation of a country is not less worthy of honor than its conqueror. - Author: J. Arthur Thomson
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by J. Arthur Thomson
#30. Jonnie Goodboy Tyler. Conqueror of Psychlos.' Brown Limper spat on the bill.
He suddenly seized the bill and tore it frantically into little pieces.
Then he threw the pieces around with angry gestures.
After that he gathered them all up again and, with a set, malevolent expression on his face, burned them.
Then he pulverized the ashes with his fist. But somebody came in soon after and said with a delighted smile, "Have you seen the new bank note?" And waved one!
Brown Limper rushed out of the room and found a place to vomit. - Author: L. Ron Hubbard
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#31. So you see, I already have everything I want. And what do you get the man who has everything? Why, you get on your knees. - Author: James Schannep
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by James Schannep
#32. Love the pride of the conquered nations, and leave them to honour their father and their mother. - Author: Karen Blixen
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Karen Blixen
#33. These inventions became, incidentally, increasingly revolting to me, for I was ineradicably marked by a touch of the old cavalryman's primitive evaluation. I admit that in the earliest times the horseman had a considerable advantage over the foot soldier. (On the other hand considerably higher expenses were involved.) But the advantage was balanced by the invention of gunpowder, so rightly lamented by Ariosto. It was the end of glorious armies like those led by Charles the Bold. Cavalry charges still took place of course – and I cannot consider it unfair for the infantryman to load and fire two or three times before he received his comeuppance – but after that, death came to the cavalry.

The old Centaurs were overpowered by the new Titan. I had seen my own conqueror at close hand when I lay bleeding on the grass. He had unhorsed me – a sickly fellow, a pimply lad from the suburbs, some cutler from Sheffield or weaver from Manchester. He cowered behind his rubble heap, one eye shut, the other aiming at me across the machine gun, which did the damage. In a pattern of red and gray, he wove an evil cloth. This was the new Polyphemus or, rather, one of his lowest messenger boys with a wire mask before his one-eyed face. This was how the present masters looked. The beauty of the forests was past. - Author: Ernst Junger
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Ernst Junger
#34. A man may conquer a million men in battle but one who conquers himself is, indeed, the greatest of conquerors. - Author: Gautama Buddha
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Gautama Buddha
#35. The beauty that withstands all. Stubborn in the harshest of atmospheres. - Author: Hafsah Faizal
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Hafsah Faizal
#36. The English government is one of those which arose out of a conquest, and not out of society, and consequently it arose over the people; and though it has been much modified from the opportunity of circumstances since the time of William the Conqueror, the country has never yet regenerated itself, and is therefore without a constitution. - Author: Thomas Paine
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Thomas Paine
#37. Your task is to conquer yourselves, not ships, lands and castles. This battle is the one in which you especially are to 'come off conqueror.' It is fought every day. In fact, it is a continuing process which commenced a long, long time ago. - Author: Neal A. Maxwell
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#38. It's like saying that two and two equals four, but if you wish to believe it, it could also be five ... Evolution is not a theory; it is a fact, every bit as much as the historical fact that William the Conqueror landed in 1066. - Author: David Attenborough
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by David Attenborough
#39. The idea of marrying Lukan made her skin crawl. He was a Chenayan. She, a Norin. He was her conqueror. She, his conquered. He had been born and raised to lord over her. She had been born and raised to hate him. They might as well have been different species. - Author: Gwynn White
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Gwynn White
#40. Of Dragon born, a conqueror prevails. The chosen one fated to protect the dying race. Third of three deemed protector to the progeny. The other marked for revenge. The book of life pages turn yet unwritten. The canvas to your mortal soul. The connection to your immortal enemy. A death will come to He that breaks the barrier. Mr. Creepy/Sooth - Author: Candace Knoebel
Iskandar The Conqueror quotes by Candace Knoebel
