Invoking Quotations

Cursing is invoking the assistance of a spirit to help you inflict suffering. Swearing on the other hand, is invoking, only the witness of a spirit to an statement you wish to make.
John Ruskin

As long as any adult thinks that he, like the parents and teachers of old, can become introspective, invoking his own youth to understand the youth before him, he is lost.
Margaret Mead

My aim is to show that those governments that violate the rights of people by invoking the name of Islam have been misusing Islam.
Shirin Ebadi

It's worth noting that invoking God as the entity who set our universe in motion isn't contradicted by the data.

But we currently have the same problem with the notion of parallel universes.
Seth Shostak

Thanks to the fact that the Earth isn't a perfect sphere, and invoking a bunch of Newtonian physics, you can deduce that our planet wobbles, too, taking roughly 26,000 years to trace out a small circle on the sky, a phenomenon known as precession.
Seth Shostak
