Famous quotes containing the words lowe and/or arthur:

    I call it our collective inheritance of isolation. We inherit isolation in the bones of our lives. It is passed on to us as sure as the shape of our noses and the length of our legs. When we are young, we are taught to keep to ourselves for reasons we may not yet understand. As we grow up we become the “men who never cry” and the “women who never complain.” We become another generation of people expected not to bother others with our problems.
    —Paula C. Lowe (20th century)

    Have We not made the earth as a cradle
    and the mountains as pegs?
    And We created you in pairs,
    and We appointed your sleep for a rest;
    and We appointed night for a garment,
    and We appointed day for a livelihood.
    And We have built above you seven strong ones,
    and We appointed a blazing lamp
    and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading
    that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants,
    and gardens luxuriant.
    Qur’an, “The Tiding” 78:6-16, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
