„Where're you going Ra?
Take me with you Ra…
You're such a busy God
I wish you could stay
I only want to play and play
But you're such a busy god
and I'm such a mortal Ra“

„I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.“

—  Genghis Khan founder and first emperor of the Mongol Empire 1162 - 1227

As quoted in Ta'Rikh-i-Jahan Gusha [History of the World Conqueror] by 'Ala-ad-Din 'Ata-Malik Juvaini (ca. 1252-1260), translated by J.A. Boyle (1958), p. 105
Kontext: O people, know that you have committed great sins, and that the great ones among you have committed these sins. If you ask me what proof I have for these words, I say it is because I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.

„Look bravely up into the sky,
And be content with knowing
That God wished for a buttercup
Just here, where you are growing.“

—  Sarah Orne Jewett American novelist, short story writer and poet 1849 - 1909

"Discontent", in St. Nicholas Magazine, Vol. 3 (February 1876), p. 247
Kontext: "Dear robin," said this sad young flower,
"Perhaps you'd not mind trying
To find a nice white frill for me,
Some day when you are flying?" "You silly thing!" the robin said;
"I think you must be crazy!
I'd rather be my honest self
Than any made-up daisy. "You're nicer in your own bright gown,
The little children love you;
Be the best buttercup you can,
And think no flower above you. "Though swallows leave me out of sight,
We'd better keep our places;
Perhaps the world would all go wrong
With one too many daisies. "Look bravely up into the sky,
And be content with knowing
That God wished for a buttercup
Just here, where you are growing."

„[I]t's not like I sit there and feel the same way I did with iPhone where I say, "Oh my God, Microsoft didn't aim high enough." It's a nice reader, but there's nothing on the iPad I look at and say, "Oh, I wish Microsoft had done it."“
