"... we have given you a world as contradictory as a female, as cabbalistic as a male, a conscienceless hermaphrodite who plays heaven off against hell, hell off against heaven, revolving in the ballroom of the skies glittering with conflict as diamonds: we have wasted paradox and mystery on you when all you ask us for is cause and effect!"

Your will find yourself, and God will find you in new ways. Silence also brings Sabbath to you. It completes solitude, for without it you cannot be alone. Far from being a mere absence, silence allows the reality of God to stand in the midst of your life. God does not ordinarily compete for our attention. IN silence we come to attend. Lastly, fasting is done that we many consciously experience the direct sustenance of God to our body and our whole person."
Author: Dallas Willard

Then, one day, for no reason, he sees you as ugly as you really are and he is not blind anymore and then you see yourself as ugly as he sees you and you lose your man and your feeling... After a while, when you are as ugly as I am, as ugly as women can be, then, as I say after a while the feeling, the idiotic feeling that you are beautiful, grows slowly in one again. It grows like a cabbage. And then, when the feeling is grown, another man sees you and thinks you are beautiful and it is all to do over."
Author: Ernest Hemingway

Il tipo di ragazza che in un serial televisivo fa la parte dell'amica della protagonista, quella che va a bere qualcosa con lei al bar, e le chiede: «Cosa ti succede? Non mi sembri molto in forma di questi tempi.» Fa solo una breve apparizione e appena scompare dallo schermo nessuno si ricorda più che faccia avesse."
Author: Haruki Murakami
20. "Chiamarsi Darcy e starsene tutto solo con aria sdegnosa a una festa mi ha subito colpita come una cosa abbastanza ridicola, un po' come se, in Cime Tempestose, Heathcliff passasse tuttta la serata in giardino a gridare "Cathy" e a sbattere la testa contro un tronco."
Author: Helen Fielding
21. "A legjobb abban a múzeumban mégis az, hogy minden mindig ott marad a helyén, ahol van. Semmi nem mozdul. Százezerszer is odamehetsz, és az eszkimó mindig éppen akkor fogja ki a két halat, a madarak még mindig délre repülnek, a szarvasok isznak a tócsából, a szép kis agancsukkal és a sovány lábukkal, és az indián no, meztelen mellével, még mindig ugyanazt a takarót szövi. Semmi nem változik; ami változik: az ember saját maga. Nem az, hogy idosebb lesz, vagy ilyesmi. Nem éppen azért. Csak éppen megvál­tozik. Mondjuk, most kabátban megy. Vagy az, aki legutóbb a párja volt, skarlátot kapott, és most más a párja. Vagy a Miss Aigletinger helyettese viszi az osztályt. Vagy az ember hallotta, hogy a szülei reggel állati nagy parádét rendeztek a fürdoszobában. Vagy az ember csak elment az utcán egy pocsolya mellett, amin szivárványszínu benzinfoltok úsznak. Úgy értem, az ember kicsit mindig más, nem tudom ezt pontosan megmagyarázni. És még ha tudnám is, nem biztos, hogy akarnám."
Author: J.D. Salinger
22. "But I do like Scotland. I like the miserable weather. I like the miserable people, the fatalism, the negativity, the violence that's always just below the surface. And I like the way you deal with religion. One century you're up to your lugs in it, the next you're trading the whole apparatus in for Sunday superstores. Praise the Lord and thrash the bairns. Ask and ye shall have the door shut in your face. Blessed are they that shop on the Sabbath, for they shall get the best bargains. Oh yes, this is a very fine country."
Author: James W. Robertson
23. "Who can endure a Cabbage Bed in October? - 'Sanditon"
Author: Jane Austen
24. "I make a special appeal regarding how young women might dress for Church services and Sabbath worship. We used to speak of "best dress" or "Sunday dress," and maybe we should do so again. In any case, from ancient times to modern we have always been invited to present our best selves inside and out when entering the house of the Lord—and a dedicated LDS chapel is a "house of the Lord." Our clothing or footwear need never be expensive, indeed should not be expensive, but neither should it appear that we are on our way to the beach. When we come to worship the God and Father of us all and to partake of the sacrament symbolizing the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we should be as comely and respectful, as dignified and appropriate as we can be. We should be recognizable in appearance as well as in behavior that we truly are disciples of Christ, that in a spirit of worship we are meek and lowly of heart, that we truly desire the Savior's Spirit to be with us always."
Author: Jeffrey R. Holland
25. "I'm a big fan of 'Star Wars.' Some of the most iconic characters of 'Star Wars,' we didn't see their faces but to this day you can say Jabba the Hutt or Darth Vader and people know what you mean around the world."
Author: Laz Alonso
26. "Mondhatom, kedves volt magától, kicsikém, hogy arra kérte az abbét, akadályozza meg, hogy ajándékokat küldjek magának. Micsoda csacsiság! Ugyan mit küldök én? Az övénél magasabb hatalom akadályoz meg benne, hogy szívem szerint küldjek; de a vágyat, a szándékot se o, se más nem fogja kiölni belolem soha. Engem oszintén boldoggá tesz mindig, hogy megajándékozhatom, és maga is velem örülhetne inkább, ha ezt az örömet gyakrabban szerezném meg magamnak. A köszönet e módja mindenesetre roppantul tetszett."
Author: Madame De Sévigné
27. "Vito c'ha pensato qualche volta al gigante che organizza il mondo. Si è chiesto se è fatto di persone, tante persone una sull'altra. E se lui sarà una di quelle persone minuscole ma decisive. È quello che un ragazzo dovrebbe sperare, partecipare all'organizzazione del mondo. Lui è sempre stato uno studente in fuga, e non solo dalla scuola. Da ogni forma di apprendimento. Abbassa la testa. Si vergogna di queste ambizioni improvvise. Non farà niente di buono, di rimarchevole. È più facile che accada così, che la sua vita passi inosservata."
Author: Margaret Mazzantini
28. "Eltávozásod, melyre meggyötört lelkem, bármily leleményes is, nem tud elég gyászos jelzot találni, örökre megfosztott attól, hogy szemedbe tekintsek, abba a szempárba, ahonnan annyi szerelem sugárzott felém, mely oly indulatokat gerjesztett szívemben, miktol elöntött az öröm, s melynek mindent pótoltak az életben, és tökéletesen kielégítettek. Jaj, nem látja már szemem az egyetlen fényforrást, melybol ragyogását kapta; nem is használom másra, mint szüntelen könnyhullatásra, mióta megtudtam, hogy úgy döntöttél: visszatérsz hazádba; hisz ez a gondolat oly elbírhatatlan, hogy gyilkosommá válik nemsokára. S lásd, közben mégis azt érzem, hogy voltaképpen még a kínokhoz is ragaszkodom én, mert te, egyedül te vagy okozójuk, s én, mihelyt megláttalak, neked szántam az életemet, hát most még abban is találok egy szikrányi gyönyöruséget, ha feláldozhatom érted."
Author: Mariana Alcoforado
29. "Study the Bible like a soldier on a mission, not a scholar on a sabbatical."
Author: Mark Driscoll
30. "Of the myriad impressive notables related to Dio's passing, perhaps foremost is the fact the man was 67 years old and was still making quality hard rock records, still touring with a new (old) version of Black Sabbath, still singing his absolute heart out about dragons and rainbows, making the infamous devil horns hand gesture he swiped from his Italian grandmother and which has since became the universal, undeniable, completely badass symbol for true metal across all galaxies everywhere, and for which Dio deserves to be ensconced in the heavens forevermore."
Author: Mark Morford
31. "For a moment she was truly terrified. This was Abbadon the Cruel. The Angel of Destruction. He could and would destroy her if he had to. If he felt like it. He had destroyed worlds before. He had decimated Paradise in the name of the Morningstar.She trembled in his grasp.All his gentleness, all his kindness, all the bright shining gorgeousness of his love, he had always given tosomeone else. He had adored Gabrielle, had worshiped her, had written her poems and sang her songs, and for Schuyler there were novels and love notes and sweet kisses and furtive tender meetings by a fireplace.But for his twin, Azrael, he had shown nothing but his anger and violence. His strength and destruction.He saved the best of himself for those who did not deserve it. Never showed his true face to those damnable Daughters of the Light.For Azrael, there was only darkness and annihilation.Rape and carnage.War and pillage.A tear escaped from her eye and glittered in the moonlight."
Author: Melissa De La Cruz
32. "Every universe, our own included, begins in conversation. Every golem in the history of the world, from Rabbi Hanina's delectable goat to the river-clay Frankenstein of Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel, was summoned into existence through language, through murmuring, recital, and kabbalistic chitchat -- was, literally, talked into life."
Author: Michael Chabon
33. "Each person bears a fear which is special to him. One man fears a close space and another man fears drowning; each laughs at the other and calls him stupid. Thus fear is only a preference, to be counted the same as the preference for one woman or another, or mutton for pig, or cabbage for onion."
Author: Michael Crichton
34. "I'd guess that you have some purpose to fulfill and that is why you were saved. But don't get a swelled head over it. A cabbage has a purpose when someone needs to make soup."
Author: Nancy Farmer
35. "It was sort of like Macbeth, thought Fat Charlie, an hour later; in fact, if the witches in Macbeth had been four little old ladies and if, instead of stirring cauldrons and intoning dread incantations, they had just welcomed Macbeth in and fed him turkey and rice and peas spread out on white china plates on a red-and-white patterned plastic tablecloth -- not to mention sweet potato pudding and spice cabbage -- and encouraged him to take second helpings, and thirds, and then, when Macbeth had declaimed that nay, he was stuffed nigh unto bursting and on his oath could truly eat no more, the witches had pressed upon him their own special island rice pudding and a large slice of Mrs. Bustamonte's famous pineapple upside-down cake, it would have been exactly like Macbeth."
Author: Neil Gaiman
36. "Problema della mia generazione è che ci sentiamo tutti dei geni del cazzo. Far qualcosa per noi non è abbastanza, e neanche vendere qualcosa, o insegnare qualcosa o solamente combinare qualcosa: no, noi dobbiamo essere qualcosa."
Author: Nick Hornby
37. "La gente si preoccupa perché i ragazzini giocano con le armi, perché gli adolescenti guardano film violenti; c'è la paura che nei giovani finisca per imporsi una specie di cultura della violenza. Nessuno si preoccupa dei ragazzini che ascoltano migliaia di canzoni - migliaia, letteralmente - che parlano di cuori spezzati, e abbandoni e dolore e sofferenza e perdita. Le persone più infelici che conosco, dico in senso amoroso, sono anche quelle pazze per la musica pop; e non sono sicuro che la musica pop sia stata la causa della loro infelicità, ma so per certo che sono persone che hanno ascoltato canzoni tristi più a lungo di quanto non siano durate le loro tristi storie."
Author: Nick Hornby
38. "Who's the new Ramones, who's the new Guns 'N Roses, who's the new Motley Crue, who's the new Black Sabbath? They're coming, they're on the street, they're 16, 17 years old."
Author: Nikki Sixx
39. "You must not lean on a tree on Sabbath, if the tree might be dependent on you for support."
Author: Ovadia Yosef
40. "I am an Armani and a Dolce & Gabbana kind of a person."

Author: Philip Warren Anderson
42. "Every time we turn to Christ in faith it is like a moment of Sabbath, a little foretaste of eternal rest and glory. The gift of that moment lies not in what we do but what we receive. It is the holy time set aside to receive the greatest gift of God ever has to give, which is himself, in his own beloved Son."
Author: Phillip Cary
43. "The Cabbage WhiteThe butterfly, a cabbage-white, (His honest idiocy of flight) Will never now, it is too late, Master the art of flying straight, Yet has- who knows so well as I?- A just sense of how not to fly: He lurches here and here by guess And God and hope and hopelessness. Even the acrobatic swift Has not his flying-crooked gift."
Author: Robert Graves
44. "An infant is a seed. Is it an oak seed or a cabbage seed? Who knows. All mothers think their children are oaks, but the world never lacks for cabbages."
Author: Robertson Davies
45. "I change clothes at least three times a day. It's the only way I can justify all the shopping I do. Prada to the grocery store? Yes! Gucci to the dry cleaner's? Why not? Dolce & Gabbana to the corner deli? I insist!"
Author: RuPaul
46. "Van valami végleges abban, ahogyan valaki eltunik lassan az úton, nem fordul meg, nem néz vissza. (…) Van valami végtelenül nyomorúságos, végtelenül végleges az üres útban. Csak mégy tovább, hallgatsz.(Egy júniusi nap)"
Author: Sylvia Plath
47. "If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once begun upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time."
Author: Thomas De Quincey
48. "And he said unto them, the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath."
Author: Thomas Jefferson
49. "Like most things that happen with Sabbath, it happened all of a sudden. I was intending on doing some recording, but out of the blue, Sharon called up and said she wanted us to do these gigs with Ozzy. I said that if everybody else was up to it then I would love to do it."
Author: Tony Iommi
50. "I'm jamming 'Black Sabbath Vol. 4' all the time. Zappa's 'Cruising With Ruben & The Jets.' A lot of Gong lately. Some Hawkwind. The Residents' 'Duck Stab' is amazing. Some Fugs. Lots of stuff, man. I'm pretty schizophrenic with records."
Author: Ty Segall
