1. "After giving it some thought, I've decided to name my monkey mind Ricky Bobby. I was thinking about Latin names like Javier, but I don't want to make my jumping, distractable self sound mysterious and sexy. Ricky Bobby makes me laugh. A name like that seems silly, not strong. Just a goofy little thing that doesn't know what to do with its hands, likes to go fast, and loves tiny, infant, baby Jesus."
Author: Anna White
2. "Each form is inadequate, like a graft to be rejected by its intractable and unrelenting host and thus can only serve a brief and momentary purpose coherent to a context rooted in contiguous reason. This unbridled brash Spirit is, to itself, burdensome, yet dynamic, for it sees no flaw in working within the confines of a closed system to achieve ends that extend beyond it. This Spirit is, in fact, self-deceptive for to achieve such ends, it becomes necessary to bound manipulable fragments of the Self with a twine by which these parts can be joined indissolubly and maneuvered adroitly with the skill of a marionettist."
Author: Ashim Shanker
3. "I gazed around the room and my eyes stopped dead on a little boy standing in the corner. This was a particularly eerie doll. Life-sized and blond-haired and blue-eyed. I saw a little Nazi boy, pockets probably stuffed with scissors and retractable blades. My grandfather on my mother's side was rumored to be half Jewish, which practically makes me Jerry Seinfeld's brother, and thus wary of blond German boys with their hands out of sight."
Author: Augusten Burroughs
4. "Contra la fisiología. Contra esta humana dependencia de ser abrazado, tocado, lamido con minúscula delicadeza por una lengua exacta. Me gustaría escribir contra la fisiología, porque la fisiología es imposible. No quiero salir a la vida, no quiero bajar a las tiendas a comprar latas ni arroz, tu eres mi concha, Brezo, quiero quedarme en ti"
Author: Belén Gopegui
5. "Cocoa-buttered girls were stretched out on the public beach in apparently random alignments, but maybe if a weather satellite zoomed in on one of those bodies and then zoomed back out, the photos would show the curving beach itself was another woman, a fractal image made up of the particulate sunbathers. All the beaches pressed together might form female landmasses, female continents, female planets and galaxies. No wonder men felt tense."
Author: Bonnie Jo Campbell
6. "Amongst all domesticated animals, a lactating cow is deemed to be a real mother to a human child as well!"
Author: Chandrababu V.S.
7. "—Hay tres preguntas que toda mujer debe ser capaz de responder afirmativamente antes de comprometerse con un hombre. Si tu respuesta es no a alguna de las tres preguntas, corre como el infierno.—Es sólo una cita —me río—. Dudo que vayamos a hacer algún compromiso.—Sé que no lo harás, Lake. Hablo en serio. Si no puedes responder sí a estas tres preguntas, ni siquiera pierdas el tiempo en una relación.Cuando abro mi boca, siento como que estoy reforzando el hecho de que soy su niña. No la interrumpo de nuevo.—¿Él te trata con respeto en todo momento? Esa es la primera pregunta. La segunda pregunta es, si es exactamente la misma persona dentro de veinte años que es hoy, ¿todavía querrías casarte con él? Y por último, ¿hace que quieras ser una mejor persona? Si encuentras a alguien que te haga responder afirmativamente a las tres, entonces has encontrado un buen hombre."
Author: Colleen Hoover
8. "En este sentido, y desde entonces, he observado lo incongruentes e irracionales que son los seres humanos, especialmente los jóvenes, frente a la razón que debe guiarlos en estos casos; es decir, que no se avergüenzan de pecar sino de arrepentirse de su pecado; que no se avergüenzan de hacer cosas por las que, legítimamente, serían tomados por tontos, sino de retractarse, por lo que serían tomados por sabios."
Author: Daniel Defoe
9. "Maybe relationships could have fractals, too. And maybe the sense of loss was when you're becoming a fractal of what you once were to each other."
Author: David Levithan
10. "It was a fractal of ugliness, disgusting at every level of self-similarity."
Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
11. "Porque a medida que nos relacionamos de manera abstracta más nos alejamos del corazón de las cosas y una indiferencia metafísica se adueña de nosotros, [....] el hombre está perdiendo el diálogo con los demás y el reconocimiento del mundo que lo rodea siendo, que es allí donde se dan el encuentro, la posibilidad del amor, los gestos supremos de la vida."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
12. "Há um cansaço da inteligência abstracta, e é o mais horroroso dos cansaços. Não pesa como o cansaço do corpo, nem inquieta como o cansaço do conhecimento pela emoção. É um peso da consciência do mundo, um não poder respirar com a alma."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
13. "La doctrina de la libertad humana sólo prueba que una hipotésis errónea es a veces preferible a otra exacta. El hombre, por cierto, no es libre: pero hace falta haber estudado filosofia muy profundamente para que una concepción de esta naturaleza no nos llame a engaño. Pero éste es un estudio para el cual dispone de tiempo y paciencia sólo un hombre entre mil, y entre los cientos que cuentam com tiempo y paciencia, sólo habrá uno, quizás, que comprenda el sentido de la cosa. Y como las aparencias le son favorables a la doctrina de la libertad, ésta es la más corriente, por ser la más cómoda, y así seguirá siendo en el futuro."
Author: Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
14. "El yo es por ello la existencia de la universalidad totalmente abstracta, lo abstractamente libre. Por eso, el yo es el pensar en cuanto sujeto y siendo así que yo estoy igualmente en todas mis sensaciones, representaciones y estados [subjetivos], resulta que el pensamiento está presente en todas partes y atraviesa como categoría todas estas determinaciones."
Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
15. "The inception of human consciousness, the genesis of awareness, must have entailed prolonged 'condensations' around intractable nodes of wonder and terror, at the discriminations to be made between the self and the other, between being and non-being (the discovery of the scandal of death)."
Author: George Steiner
16. "Of course you prefer Gregory PeckBecause for goodness sake, by heckVinnie Jones cannot actFor sure that's a factAnd at football he was also a wreck!"
Author: Gerry Wolstenholme
17. "All created forms are fractal, as is their purpose, use, and allotted time for existence."
Author: Guy Finley
18. "Exactamente lo mismo me pasó, años después con el baile. Mis hermanas eras todas grandes bailarinas, y yo tenía buen oído, como ellas, al menos para cantar, pero cuando ellas me invitaba a bailar, yo ponía el acento del baile donde no era, con una arritmia total, o con el mismo ritmo de las risas de ellas cuando me veían mover los pies."
Author: Héctor Abad Faciolince
19. "Aquellos dos hablaban de especie de jerga matemática superior. Nunca entraba en ella nada de carne y hueso: era extraña, fantasmal, espantosamente abstracta."
Author: Henry Miller
20. "Ante determinados hechos de tu vida, ¿no piensas en el instante en el que nacieron, en el germen del que surgieron? No sé cómo decirlo… Imagina un campo en el momento de la siembra, todo lo que contiene un grano de trigo, las cosechas futuras… Bueno, pues en la vida ocurre exactament igual. El instante en que vi a François por primera vez, en que nos miramos, todo lo que contenía ese instante… ¡Es terrible, es escalofriante, produce vértigo! Nuestro amor, nuestra separación, los tres años que pasó en Dakar, cuando yo estaba casada con otro y todo lo demás, Sylvestre… Luego, la guerra, los niños… Cosas dulces y también amargas… Su muerte, o la mía, y la desesperación del que quede solo."
Author: Irène Némirovsky
21. "Mi nieto corría delante con los pies para los lados y moviendo los brazos como un pato. Nos acercamos al arroyo, tumultuoso en invierno, donde habíamos esparcido tus cenizas. Lo reconoció al punto.-Paula estaba enferma ayer-dijo; para él todo pasado era ayer.-Sí. Se murió.-¿Quién la mató?-No es como en la televisión, Alejandro, a veces la gente se enferma y se muere, así no más.-Adónde van los muertos?-No sé exactamente.-Ella se fue por allí-dijo señalando el arroyo.-Sus cenizas se fueron en el agua, pero su espíritu vive en este bosque.¿No te parece lindo?-No. Sería mejor que viviera con nosotros-decidió."
Author: Isabel Allende
22. "El ardor de ese beso no los abandonó en muchos días y llenó de fantasmas delicados sus noches, dejando su recuerdo en la piel, como una quemadura. La alegría de ese encuentro los transportaba levitando por la calle, los impulsaba a reír sin causa aparente, los despertaba sobresaltados en la mitad de un sueño. Se tocaban los labios con las puntas de los dedos y evocaban exactamente la forma de la boca del otro."
Author: Isabel Allende
23. "Portanto - disse a Srta. Tilney -, a senhorita crê que os historiadores não são felizes ao deixar sua imaginação voar. Eles demonstram possuí-la, mas não conseguem despertar o interesse. Eu gosto de História, e não me importo de aceitar o que é falso junto com o que é verdadeiro. Para descrever os fatos principais, eles buscam informações em registros e em outros livros que são tão confiáveis, creio eu, quanto qualquer coisa que não se passe diante de nossos próprios olhos. E quanto aos pequenos adornos aos quais se refere, são apenas adornos, e gosto deles como tal. Se um discurso for bem escrito, eu o lerei com prazer, não importa quem seja o autor. E leio com mais prazer ainda se tiverem sido produzidos pelo Sr. Hume e pelo Sr. Robertson do que se fossem as palavras genuínas de Caractacus, Júlio Agrícola ou ALfredo, o Grande."
Author: Jane Austen
24. "Rose is undistractable, indefatigable, a problem solver.Work is her essence, her animating spirit, and the core of her impact on me. Her dedication to it helps make my life possible, connects the two of us in this powerful way."
Author: Jon Katz
25. "Reprezentarea cea mai exacta a sufletului omenesc este labirintul. Acolo totul este posibil."
Author: José Saramago
26. "Como já deveríamos saber, a representação mais exacta, mais precisa, da alma humana é o labirinto. Com ela tudo é possível."
Author: José Saramago
27. "He smiled like he couldn't help it. She couldn't believe it. He was actally smiling, teeth and all. Had she ever seen him smile before? No, she realized, because right now, it was such a jarring thing to witness that for a moment it felt as though she was sharing the car with a stranger."
Author: Kelly Creagh
28. "Their [realists'] concern is that utopian aspirations towards a new peaceful world order will simply absolutize con?icts and make them more intractable. National interests are in some degree negotiable; rights, in principle, are not. International organizations such as the United Nations have not been conspicuously successful in bringing peace, and it is likely that the states of the world would become extremely nervous of any move to give the UN the overwhelming power needed to do this."
Author: Kenneth Minogue
29. "Ya sabes, hay una delgada línea entre el amor y el odio. Tal vez me amabas y no te diste cuenta -sugirió, sonriendo. Sonreí porque eso era exactamente lo que estaba pensando antes."
Author: Kirsty Moseley
30. "I'm not a vampire" he snapped."Well, you drink blood to live and you have retractable fangs just like your wings. I'd say that makes you a vampire." I thought for a moment. "Or a Venezuelan fruit bat."Michael was not amused."
Author: Kristina Douglas
31. "The presidential candidates are offering prescriptions for everything from Iraq to healthcare, but listen closely. Their fixes are situational and incremental. Meanwhile, the underlying structural problems in American politics and government are systemic and prevent us from solving our most intractable challenges."
Author: Larry J. Sabato
32. "The past is fractal premonition, infinite to the eye but nothing to be built on . . ."
Author: Lawrence Krauser
33. "Les enseñaron que por un instante de dolor permanecerían intactas en la eternidad. Sin embargo sus corazones deseaban seguir latiendo allí: en ese mundo donde nada era puro, pero todo era bello."
Author: Liliana Bodoc
34. "I came to regard my body in a new light. For the first time I apprehended the little mounds on my chest as teats for the suckling of young, and their physical resemblance to udders on cows or the swinging distensions on lactating hounds was suddenly unavoidable. Funny how even women forget what breasts are for.The cleft between my legs transformed as well. It lost a certain outrageousness, an obscenity, or achieved an obscenity of a different sort. The flaps seemed to open not to a narrow, snug dead end, but to something yawning. The passageway itself became a route to somewhere else, a real place, and not merely to a darkness in my mind. The twist of flesh in front took on a devious aspect, its inclusion overtly ulterior, a tempter, a sweetener for doing the species' heavy lifting, like the lollipops I once got at the dentist."
Author: Lionel Shriver
35. "Beatrix wished she were a swooning sort of female. It seemed the only appropriate response to the situation.Unfortunately, no matter how she tried to summon a swoon, her mind remained intractably conscious."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
36. "—¿Me echas de menos? —preguntó Justine.—No —dijo él—, me paso el día entero prohibiéndome echarte de menos. No me permito pensar en nubes, besos sabrosos ni en lo suaves que son los espacios entre los dedos de tus pies, ni en las ganas que tengo de hablar contigo hasta que hayamos consumido todo el oxígeno en la habitación. Y, sobre todo no me recreo en el hecho de que esté donde esté siempre hay un vacío a mi lado que tiene exactamente tu forma y tamaño."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
37. "La mayoría de las personas creen que tienen una idea clara de lo que es correcto e incorrecto. Muchos dicen saber cómo actuar, o cómo manejar una situación extrema. Pero para ser honestos, nadie lo sabe. No de verdad. Incluso si dicen: "!Nunca voy a hacer esto o aquello¡" eso en realidad puede no ser cierto. Porque ninguno de nosotros realmente sabe lo que vamos a hacer cuando las circunstancias son tan abrumadoras y complejas que ni siquiera podemos distinguir el bien del mal. Y luego están las situaciones totalmente imprevistas, cuando la vida maneja cartas que nunca esperaste, o cuando algo que consideras malo se transforma en algo correcto y tu mente determina que lo que una vez fue una regla, no está escrita en piedra. Incluso si nunca te pasó, apuesto a que entenderás exactamente de lo que estoy hablando."
Author: Lurlene McDaniel
38. "In the case of patentable ideas such as the wheelbarrow, the idea of unpriced spillovers is more plausible. Yet there is no reason to believe that it is of practical importance. Indeed, there is a modern example of the wheelbarrow – that of Travelpro – the inventor of the modern wheeled roll-on suitcase with a retractable handle. Obviously such an idea can not both be useful and be secret – and once you see a wheeled roll-on suitcase it is not difficult to figure out how to make one of your own. Needless to say, Travelpro was quickly imitated – and so quickly you probably have never even heard of Travelpro. Never-the-less – despite their inability to garner an intellectual monopoly over their invention – they found it worthwhile to innovate – and they still do a lucrative business today, claiming "425,000 Flight Crew Members Worldwide Choose Travelpro Luggage."
Author: Michele Boldrin
39. "Dubbed the pink panthers of Madagascar, the fossas are killing machines, eating pretty much anything that moves with powerful jaws filled with canines as big as any guard dog's and long, retractable claws on both front and hind feet...What get most scientists' attention is the fossa's penis. An adult fossa is about 3.5 feet long and has a penis of about 7 inches, a sixth of its body length. If a man had the same ratio, he would be 3 feet tall and very smug."
Author: Mireya Mayor
40. "Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women's history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one."
Author: Naomi Wolf
41. "Mineral cactai,quicksilver lizards in the adobe walls,the bird that punctures space,thirst, tedium, clouds of dust, impalpable epiphanies of wind.The pines taught me to talk to myself.In that garden I learnedto send myself off.Later there were no gardens."
Author: Octavio Paz
42. "Like a fractal, wetiko operates on multiple dimensions simultaneously--intra-personally (within individuals), inter-personally (among ourselves), collectively (as a species), as well as trans-personally (in a realm beyond our personal selves). Those afflicted with wetiko consume, like a cannibal, the life force of others--human and nonhuman--for private purposes or profit, and do so without giving back something from their own lives."
Author: Paul Levy
43. "Evolution has no foresight. Complex machinery develops its own agendas. Brains — cheat. Feedback loops evolve to promote stable heartbeats and then stumble upon the temptation of rhythm and music. The rush evoked by fractal imagery, the algorithms used for habitat selection, metastasize into art. Thrills that once had to be earned in increments of fitness can now be had from pointless introspection. Aesthetics rise unbidden from a trillion dopamine receptors, and the system moves beyond modeling the organism. It begins to model the very process of modeling. It consumes evermore computational resources, bogs itself down with endless recursion and irrelevant simulations. Like the parasitic DNA that accretes in every natural genome, it persists and proliferates and produces nothing but itself. Metaprocesses bloom like cancer, and awaken, and call themselves I."
Author: Peter Watts
44. "What is inevitable is not death but change. Change is the only abiding reality. The metaverse evolves, fractally and forever. Saints become sinners, sinners become saints. Dust becomes men, men become gods, gods become dust."
Author: Robert Charles Wilson
45. "I'm no more used to being without a weapon than you are. (Cassandra)She's right about that. Her teddy bear is a six-inch retractable knife with a snub-nosed .38 Special. (Katra)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
46. "He held her and rocked her, believing, rightly or wrongly, that Ellie wept for the very intractability of death, its imperviousness to argument or to a little girl's tears; that she wept over its cruel unpredictability; and that she wept because of the human being's wonderful, deadly ability to translate symbols into conclusions that were either fine and noble or blackly terrifying. If all those animals had died and been buried, then Church could die (any time!) and be buried; and if that could happen to Church, it could happen to her mother, her father, her baby brother. To herself. Death was a vague idea; the Pet Sematary was real. In the texture of those rude markers were truths which even a child's hands could feel."
Author: Stephen King
47. "Resistance is implacable, intractable, indefatigable."
Author: Steven Pressfield
48. "It is now known to science that there are many more dimensions than the classical four. Scientists say that these don't normally impinge on the world because the extra dimensions are very small and curve in on themselves, and that since reality is fractal most of it is tucked inside itself. This means either that the universe is more full of wonders than we can hope to understand or, more probably, that scientists make things up as they go along."
Author: Terry Pratchett
49. "Au lieu d'être immobile comme il convient à un pied embaumé depuis quatre mille ans, il s'agitait, se contractait et sautillait sur les papiers comme une grenouille effarée."
Author: Théophile Gautier
50. "To a novelist, fluidity is the ultimate good omen; suddenly difficult problems are simply solved, intractable structural knots loosen themselves, and you come upon the key without even recognizing that this is what you hold."
Author: Zadie Smith
