Attack Quotations

When you write an article about anything, trolls use the comments to attack. They feel frustrated - but haters are losers. It's not good to feed this aspect. It's more intelligent to be constructive.
Paulo Coelho

The difference must be distinguished between worship and respect. Islam orders you to obey and respect, as long as you are not worshiping anything other than God... Islam is a religion of peace. You don't attack. You explain.
Hakeem Olajuwon

In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.
