Quotable Quotes

If you are neutral in a situation of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. - Desmond Tutu

Humour Without Malice

Wang Pang, the son of Wang Anshi (a noted scholar and official of the Song dynasty) was playing at a friend's house, where there was a deer and river deer in a cage. The master of the house asked Wang Pang: "Can you tell which of the animals is a deer and which is a river deer?" Wang Pang, who was less than ten years old, was unable to distinguish the two. But he said: "The one next to the river deer is a deer, and the one next to the deer is a river deer."


Two blessings in which many people are defrauded are good health and leisure time. (hadith)
