Цитаты Карим Абдул-Джаббар

„Your mind is what makes everything else work. Ваш ум — это то, что заставляет всё вокруг работать.“

„You have to be able to center yourself, to let all of your emotions go. Don’t ever forget that you play with your soul as well as your body.“

„One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team.“

„Many people are born into their religion. For them it is mostly a matter of legacy and convenience. Their belief is based on faith, not just in the teachings of the religion but also in the acceptance of that religion from their family and culture. For the person who converts, it is a matter of fierce conviction and defiance. Our belief is based on a combination of faith and logic because we need a powerful reason to abandon the traditions of our families and community to embrace beliefs foreign to both. Conversion is a risky business because it can result in losing family, friends and community support.“

„He had breath in him once,” he declared. “He is to be treated with respect, no matter the cost.” “Now is not the time for empty ritual,” Holmes thundered. “Now is precisely the time!” Douglas thundered back. “When we ourselves are empty, it is the ritual that turns us human again.“ Mycroft Holmes

„I looked down the line of the wonderfully successful people on either side of me and wondered if each of them had a Coach Wooden who, to quote President Obama, “helped make me who I am.” I hoped so, because without Coach, my life would have been so much less. Less joyous. Less meaningful. Less filled with love. Later“ Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court

„You cant win unless you learn how to lose.“

„The foolish will tread where the wise will not,” Holmes replied. “If we waited for the wisdom of this venture, Douglas and I would still be in London.” “To fools, then!” Little Huan exclaimed. “To fools!” the others declared.“ Mycroft Holmes

„Pride goeth before destruction,” he quoted, “and a haughty spirit before a fall.“ Mycroft Holmes

„Despite Coach's admonishment, some of us on the team smoked marijuana. I had been exposed to it back in New York and had occasionally indulged with my friends. At college, though, using it seemed hipper and more of a counterculture statement than just a way of getting high. Plus, it helped with my migraines, which were becoming more frequent.“

„The person unaware of history is like a rudderless boat just floating out in the middle of the ocean, hostages to the waves and currents.“ On the Shoulders of Giants: My Journey Through the Harlem Renaissance

„Douglas wondered if his friend would make it out of this alive. He realized, not for the first time, that life or death was not the most important thing. The most important thing was the mission, their own small attempt to “proclaim liberty to the captives,” as the Book of Isaiah had commanded nearly three thousand years before. To engage in a war where there would be no material benefit for the victor other than the liberation of oppressed and victimized human beings.“ Mycroft Holmes

„If there is moral insanity," he said in a conspiratorial whisper, "then there may be the reverse, immoral sanity, if you will, that comes upon one suddenly, like a fever.“

„If you get yourself too engrossed in things over which you have no control, it’s going to adversely affect the things over which you have control.” His“ Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court

„Regarding faith, my adherence to Islam had not diminished over the years since my conversion, but I had modified it from the intense orthodoxy I had followed at first to a more streamlined version that I felt was more progressive and inclusive. I practiced quietly on my own without the need to proselytize. I had been able to separate my faith in the theology from using it to make a cultural statement about black Americans. My only interest in Islam was spiritual and ethical guidance, not politics. In“ Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court

„The person who has some awareness of the past knows how to fashion a rudder and which direction land is.“ On the Shoulders of Giants: My Journey Through the Harlem Renaissance
