My travels[edit]

Favourite quotes[edit]

  • King Jan III of Poland (1629–1696) after the Battle of Vienna
    • "Venimus, Vidimus, Deus vicit" ("We came, We saw, God conquered")
  • C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)
    • "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
  • Winston Churchill (1874–1965)
    • "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
  • J. R. R. Tolkien (1892-1973)
    • "Not all those who wander are lost."
  • Henry Clay (1777–1852)
    • "If you wish to avoid foreign collision, you had better abandon the ocean."
  • Ronald Reagan (1911–2004)
    • "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"
  • Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington (1769-1852)
    • "We always have been, we are, and I hope that we always shall be detested in France."
  • Bernard Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein (1887-1976)
    • "Rule 1, on page 1 of the book of war, is: 'Do not march on Moscow'… Rule 2 is: 'Do not go fighting with your land armies in China.'"
