"There are many people who, when they're in a moment of danger, will resort to prayer and hope that God will get them out of this trouble. I've always had the feeling that to do that is a slightly sneaky way of doing things. If I've got myself into that situation, I always felt it's up to me to make the effort somehow to get myself out again and not to rely on some super-human human being who can just lift me out of this rather miserable situation.

That may be a slightly arrogant approach, but I still feel that in the end, it's up to us to meet our challenges and to overcome them." -Ed Hillary

 

 


Mikilvćg bók

Bókafélagiđ Ugla hefur nýlega sent frá sér ţýđingu Brynjars Arnarsonar á bókinni Íslamistar og naívistar eftir dönsku hjónin Karen Jespersen og Ralf Pittelkow. Hún er ţingmađur og ráđherra og hann er lektor viđ Kaupmannahafnarháskóla.

Ég las bókina nýlega og mćli sterklega međ henni.

Ég vil benda a umfjöllun Atla Harđarsonar um hana.
