Top Albania Quotes

Albania Quotes By Mark A. Noll

Thus, it is taking more American churches to field one missionary than churches in other parts of the world. For example, whereas there is one crosscultural missionary supported by every 0.7 evangelical churches in Singapore, by 2.1 churches in Hong Kong, 2.4 in Albania, 2.5 in Sri Lanka, 2.6 in Mongolia, 4.2 in South Korea, 4.9 in Myanmar, and 5.3 in Senegal, in the United States the ratio is 7.6 churches to one missionary.[6] The proper conclusion from this flurry of numbers would seem to be that, while the United States contains a whole lot of evangelical churches, those churches are not now as proportionately active in crosscultural missionary activity as many churches in the non-Western world. Evangelical dynamism in these other churches has replaced, or is replacing, the evangelical dynamism of American churches as the leading edge of world Christian expansion. That expansion seems to be tracking the earlier pattern of American adjustments to Christianity-after-Christendom. — Mark A. Noll

Albania Quotes By Rick Riordan

Okay. But ... go easy. We don't want another Albania." "No," Reyna agreed. Their first shadow-travel experience together, two days ago, had been a total fiasco, possibly the most humiliating episode in Reyna's long career. Perhaps someday, if they survived, they would look back on it and laugh, but not now. The three of them had agreed never to speak of it. What happened in Albania would stay in Albania. — Rick Riordan

Albania Quotes By Ismail Kadare

The founding father of Albanian literature is the nineteenth-century writer Naim Frasheri. Without having the greatness of Dante or Shakespeare, he is nonetheless the founder, the emblematic character. He wrote long epic poems, as well as lyrical poetry, to awaken the national consciousness of Albania. — Ismail Kadare

Albania Quotes By Paul Theroux

Unless there is a strong sense of place there is no travel writing, but it need not come from topographical description; dialogue can also convey a sense of place. Even so, I insist, the traveler invents the place. Feeling compelled to comment on my travel books, people say to me, "I went there"
China, India, the Pacific, Albania
"and it wasn't like that." I say, "Because I am not you. — Paul Theroux

Albania Quotes By Ismail Kadare

I thought for a long time about leaving Albania, but at the same time to play a role in its life. — Ismail Kadare

Albania Quotes By Dimitrije Tucovic

Unlimited enmity of the Albanian people against Serbia is the foremost real result of the Albanian policies of the Serbian government. The second and more dangerous result is the strengthening of two big powers in Albania, which have the greatest interests in the Balkans. — Dimitrije Tucovic

Albania Quotes By John Darnielle

My love is like a powder keg
My love is like a powder keg in the corner of an empty warehouse
Somewhere just outside of town
About to burn down
My love is like a Cuban plane
My love is like a Cuban plane flying from Havana
Up the Florida coast to the 'Glades
Soviet made
Our love is like the border between Greece and Albania
Our love is like the border between Greece and Albania
Trucks loaded down with weapons
Crossing over every night
Moon yellow and bright
There is a shortage in the blood supply
But there is no shortage of blood
The way I feel about you baby can't explain it
You got the best of my love — John Darnielle

Albania Quotes By Fatos Nano

Albania, Macedonia and Greece have managed to create a good partnership in the south of the Continent and are making progress in blocking the spread of the conflict. But any spillover could destroy this European-oriented partnership and create problems for the European Union countries themselves. — Fatos Nano

Albania Quotes By Franklin D. Roosevelt

I fearthat both dictators [Hitler and Mussolini] think their present methods are succeeding because of the gains they have made in Albania, Hungary and Yugoslavia. — Franklin D. Roosevelt

Albania Quotes By Paul Newman

[Getting the truth in the New York Post has been as] difficult as finding a good hamburger in Albania. — Paul Newman

Albania Quotes By Ismail Kadare

Albania's future is towards Christianity, since it is connected with it culturally, old memories, and its pre-Turkish nostalgia. With the passing of time, the late Islamic religion that came with the Ottomans should evaporate (at first in Albania and then in Kosova), until it will be replaced by Christianity or, to be more exact, Christian culture. Thus from one evil (the prohibition of religion in 1967) goodness will come. The Albanian nation will make a great historical correction that will accelerate its unity with its mother continent: Europe — Ismail Kadare

Albania Quotes By Ismail Kadare

It is well known that in the Communist countries, and especially in my own, Albania, readers were often called upon to demonstrate their vigilance by detecting and denouncing the 'errors' of authors. — Ismail Kadare

Albania Quotes By Ismail Kadare

Greater Albania?!", this is a mockery of an unprecedented cynicism. — Ismail Kadare

Albania Quotes By Ismail Kadare

If I manage to write something that I consider good and valuable in a particular place, that spot automatically has a special aura for me. In Albania, there are two cities where I have written the majority of my work: Gjirokaster, my home city, and Tirana. — Ismail Kadare

Albania Quotes By Georgi Parvanov

I believe that the capital of the Republic of Albania is a suitable venue for discussing the dialogue among religions and civilizations, notably in the countries of South East Europe, because we are well familiar with this country's track record of religious tolerance. — Georgi Parvanov

Albania Quotes By Fatos Nano

Albania is at risk and we are living in difficult times. — Fatos Nano

Albania Quotes By Jason Goodwin

They were always Albanians. You know what that means. Some Catholics, some Orthodox. And some, in time, were Muslims, too. But the first religion of the Albanian, as they say, is Albania. — Jason Goodwin

Albania Quotes By Fatos Nano

Albania does not feel alone. It is part of the Partnership for Peace structures in NATO, and it will do what it can within that. — Fatos Nano

Albania Quotes By Flora Sandes

I had always pictured the Albanian
peasants as a very fine picturesque race of men wearing spotless native costume, and slung about with fascinating looking daggers and curious weapons of all kinds, but the great majority of those I saw, more especially in the small towns, were
a very degenerate looking race indeed. — Flora Sandes

Albania Quotes By John Buchan

Albania Quotes By John Bolton

Obama sees America as another country on the UN role call. Somewhere between Albania and Zimbabwe. — John Bolton

Albania Quotes By Noel Malcolm

Religion mattered at a deep level, which must help to explain why none of these people went over to Islam; but in most cases it did not direct their lives, nor did it prevent some of them from cultivating their connection with a powerful relative who was a Muslim convert. Whilst the fact that they were Catholics from one of Christendom's frontier zones may have given them an enhanced sense of their Catholicism, the fact that they were Albanians, connected by language, blood and history to Ottoman subjects and Ottoman territory, gave them an ability to see things also from something more like an Ottoman perspective — Noel Malcolm

Albania Quotes By Catherynne M Valente

I asked a queen once why she didn't want me. She wasn't a powerful queen, not a monarch of Spain or of Albania. Just a little kingdom of nowhere, but she married well and she had a crown. The queen of nowhere looked at me with her clear grey eyes and said: "Because I don't want to be in a story." Princesses usually grow up to be queens. The cleverness sticks long after the beauty goes. — Catherynne M Valente

Albania Quotes By Stanislaw Lem

Something peculiar is happening to my head. I remember that my father was Barnaby, but I had another named Balaton. Unless that's a lake in Albania. — Stanislaw Lem

Albania Quotes By Oscar Wilde

I tried to visit Albania but I couldn't find it on the map. — Oscar Wilde

Albania Quotes By Henry Noel Brailsford

They are Nietzsche's over-men, these primitive Albanians - something between kings and tigers. — Henry Noel Brailsford

Albania Quotes By Emma Bonino

Albania has to demonstrate that it is willing to be a reliable partner in the international community. — Emma Bonino

Albania Quotes By Alan Furst

And, with much of Europe occupied by Nazi Germany, and Mussolini's armies in Albania, on the Greek frontier, one wasn't sure what came next. So, don't trust the telephone. Or the newspapers. Or the radio. Or tomorrow. — Alan Furst

Albania Quotes By Dan Jenkins

I am among those who firmly believe that a round of golf should not take more than three and a half hours, four at most. Anything longer than that is not a round of golf, it's life in Albania. — Dan Jenkins

Albania Quotes By Fatos Nano

Kosovo is too close to Europe. It is not only close to Albania, it is close to Greece, Italy, Germany and Switzerland, where there are still many Kosovo refugees. Spontaneous reactions could multiply. — Fatos Nano

Albania Quotes By Edi Rama

Albania is going through a deep crisis because it lacks the rule of law, an independent judiciary, and freedom of the media. I don't think if we stop protesting the problem is solved. — Edi Rama
