Who wrote this quote Give you a lever and a place to stand and you can move the world?
According to Pappus of Alexandria, Archimedes' work on levers caused him to remark:
'δῶς μοι πᾶ στῶ καὶ τὰν γᾶν κινάσω'
which translates from Greek as:
'Give me a place to stand on and I will move the world.'
Therefore, the answer is Archimedes of Syracuse.
Archimedes Alternate Answer: The principle of the lever might be stated as; 'Give me a firm place to stand and I shall move the world.' This is the principle behind the lever, but it is also basic to every electric motor that exists, every gas engine that exists, every diesel engine that exists, every engine that exists and every rocket motor or jet engine that exists. It is far, far more important than 'the lever'…
Yes. Oars are like levers. As Archimedes said: "Give me a place to stand and with a lever I will move the whole world." It may not be the best way to drive a sailboat (why not use the sails?), but in an emergency, or where there is no wind, it may be the only alternative to an outboard motor. Many sailboats are equiped with oars or paddles for emergencies.

As a result, retaining walls for the esplanade were built on the western and southern sides of the esplanade to keep it level. The…

Did Obama say in his book I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction?
Yes, but your quote is taken out of context and misquoted. Pres Obama was referring to supporting all immigrant groups. See the entire quote from pages 260-261: "...Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their…
They are both lever actions, in a way. It's a question of mechanics. Lever action rifles fell out of favor for a variety of reasons. Difficult to fire prone (lever travel), tubular magazines (blunt lead bullets only), loss of sight picture, I'm sure people can add their favorite. Pump actions weren't very popular for rifles for many of the same reasons. Tubular magazines aren't hazardous for shotguns because of the wide, blunt, plastic ends don't…
The full quote is "For the hand that rocks the cradle, is the hand that rules the world." It is from a poem by William Ross Wallace that celebrates Motherhood and the concept that what a person becomes in their life starts with what they learn from their mother and that ultimately, it is mothers that have the greatest influence on what we are or become.
