If Moses had been paid newspaper rates for the Ten Commandments, he might have written the Two Thousand Commandments. Isaac Bashevis Singer
There can be no living culture in the world if you cannot criticize its foundations –- the religion. We lack the courage to ask any question about any religious issue. For example, as a Muslim, I cannot say a single word about the Prophet Moses. The Prophet Moses did not say anything to me as a Muslim, whereas the Israeli Jew can criticize Moses and all the prophets in the Torah, and he can even question the divinity of the Torah. We, in Arab society, do not understand the meaning of freedom. We say that freedom means writing an article. Freedom is much deeper than that. Ali Ahmed Said; Adonis
The Ten Commandments have served as a symbol of law, not only in the United States, but in other countries of the world. On the frieze of the Supreme Court is Moses holding the tablets of the Ten Commandments written in Hebrew, Now I don’t think that is a state endorsement of Judaism. Jay Sekulow
Hoarding money is not like hoarding grain or food supplies. Moses' advice to the Pharaoh was the right advice for the dark years of Egypt. The Pharaoh had to store up in the seven good years to tide one over for the seven bad years. Egypt needed huge stocks of grain and staples to help its people pull through a severe drought. The ultimate reserve fund for a king is a healthy, vibrant and skilled population Ibn Khaldoun
God handed his word to Moses. He didn't need the Tennessee General Assembly's help. Steve Cohen
I [Moses] am not a man of words. Book of Exodus
Thousands of years ago there were people who complained that Moses had only 10 commandments instead of 12. Walter J. Hickel
I recommend that, in recognition of the signal act of heroism of First Lieutenant Frank H. Newcomb, United States Revenue Cutter Service, above set forth, the thanks of Congress be extended to him and to his officers and men of the HUDSON; and that a gold medal of honor be presented to Lieutenant Newcomb, and silver medal of honor to each of his crew who served with him at Cardenas . William McKinley
Consider what the Lord said to Moses – and I think he was right. Bernard Law Montgomery
I respect and honor all four great Prophets: Jesus Christ, Mohamed, Moses and Buddha, so that I can appeal to any one of them in heaven Kublai Khan
We know, on the authority of Moses, that longer ago than six thousand years the world did not exist Martin Luther
Moses (that wise Legislator) in his forbidding the Jews to lend money one to another, and permitting them to lend their money to Strangers; ordained that Law as much to a Political as a Religious intent; knowing that by the latter they should enrich their own Nation, and by the former no publick good could ensue; the consequences being only to impoverish one Jew to make another rich. Josiah Child
Thou shalt not let him go away empty. Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of thy floor, and out of thy wine-press: of that wherewith the Lord thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him. Moses
In this quest to seek and find God in all things there is still an area of uncertainty. There must be. If a person says that he met God with total certainty and is not touched by a margin of uncertainty, then this is not good. For me, this is an important key. If one has the answers to all the questions—that is the proof that God is not with him. It means that he is a false prophet using religion for himself. The great leaders of the people of God, like Moses, have always left room for doubt. Pope Francis I

… from the time of the Mosaic revelation through to the final collapse of Jewish sovereignty, God’s people observed no distinction between civil and religious law. Eric Nelson
The only points in which I differ from all ecclesiastical teaching is that I do not believe that any man ever saw or talked with God, I do not believe that God inspired the Mosaic code, or told the historians what they say he did about woman, for all the religions on the face of the earth degrade her, and so long as woman accepts the position that they assign her, her emancipation is impossible. Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Like an American Moses, she [Hillary Clinton] was an imperfect prophet, leading women to the edge of the Promised Land. Now its up to anotehr woman to enter it. Charlotte Alter
