1. "I would by all means have men beware, lest Aesop's pretty fable of the fly that sate on the pole of a chariot at the Olympic races and said, 'What a dust do I raise,' be verified in them. For so it is that some small observation, and that disturbed sometimes by the instrument, sometimes by the eye, sometimes by the calculation, and which may be owing to some real change in the sky, raises new skies and new spheres and circles."
Author: Aesop
2. "Our capacity to draw happiness from aesthetic objects or material goods in fact seems critically dependent on our first satisfying a more important range of emotional or psychological needs, among them the need for understanding, for love, expression and respect."
Author: Alain De Botton
3. "Un estado totalitario realmente eficaz sería aquel en el cual los jefes políticos todopoderosos y su ejército de colaboradores pudieran gobernar una población de esclavos sobre los cuales no fuese necesario ejercer coerción alguna por cuanto amarían su servidumbre. Inducirles a amarla es la tarea asignada en los actuales estados totalitarios a los ministerios de propaganda, los directores de los periódicos y los maestros de escuela."
Author: Aldous Huxley
4. "It is a sad fact that all flesh must die, but there is no reason why one's story, as well as one's soul, should be slighted after the passage. The attraction artists feel for our cemeteries is only partly aesthetic; much of it is gossip, a continual whisper intended for the delighted ear. Marble without a story is just marble. A true monument leans over and murmurs in your ear."
Author: Andrei Codrescu
5. "Od tada pokušavam da razumijem te ljude. Ali mi loše ide: oni se krecu u prostoru kolektivnog iracionalnog, a ako vas je Bog kaznio pa u vas usadio malo razuma, teško je probiti se kroz taj svijet džinovskih pecurki na cijim klobucima raste mahovina u obliku krsta i cetiri slova 'S', svijet nadrkanih, bijelih zeceva koji predvode horde bivših opštinskih cinovnika pretvorene u koljacke paravojske nalivene šljivovicom, svijet ludog šeširdžije koji se svakog božica preoblaci u pravoslavnog patrijarha, vadi svoj casovnik i mahnitu zemlju iza izvrnutog zrcala, u kojem se ogleda Evropa, obaviještava da Hrist nije roden 25. decembra, nego 7. januara, i da Nova godina ne pocinje prvog, nego cetrnaestog januara."
Author: Andrej Nikolaidis
6. "I almost wish that I could replace their hideous flok dolls, as a gesture of my gratitude. Could you, perhaps, have one of the local women fashion a crude poppet out of, say, a wooden spool and some scraps of wool? Nothing fancy. Aesthetic standars for this particular collection were not high, believe me. "Ugly" and "ill-crafted" seem to be part of the key criteria."
Author: Beth Fantaskey
7. "From the first time I saw Sid Caesar be funny I knew that's what I had to do."
Author: Billy Crystal
8. "Thinking in art and morals and even mathematics is neither the reflection in consciousness of a mechanical order in the brain nor the tracing with the mind's eye of some empirical order in its object, but an endeavour to realize in thought an ideal order which would satisfy an inner demand. The nearer thought comes to its goal, the more it finds itself under constraint by that goal, and dominated in its creative effort by aesthetic or moral or logical relevance. These relations of relevance are not physical or psychological relations. They are normative relations that can enter into the mental current because that current is . . . teleological. Their operation marks the presence of a different type of law, which supervenes upon physical and psychological laws when purpose takes control."
Author: Brand Blanshard
9. "Emma, la maestra de la mentira. La reina del "Mi hermano es normal", "Mi hermano es tímido". Mi hermano es muy enfermizo, tiene alergias, mononucleosis, intoxicación alimentaria, la gripe. Y la mentira más grande y más turbia de tods: "Mi hermano"."
Author: Brenna Yovanoff
10. "«Non cattiva» replicò Fermín. «Idiota. È ben diverso. La malvagità presuppone un certo spessore morale, forza di volontà e intelligenza. L'idiota invece non si sofferma a ragionare, obbedisce all'istinto, come un animale nella stalla, convinto di agire in nome del bene e di avere sempre ragione. Si sente orgoglioso in quanto può rompere le palle, con licenza parlando, a tutti coloro che considera diversi, per il colore della pelle, perché hanno altre opinioni, perché parlano un'altra lingua, perché non sono nati nel suo paese o, come nel caso di don Federico, perché non approva il loro modo di divertirsi. Nel mondo c'è bisogno di più gente cattiva e di meno rimbambiti.»"
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
11. "Aesthetics have substantial political consequences. How one views oneself as beautiful or not beautiful or desirable or not desirable has deep consequences in terms of one's feelings of self-worth and one's capacity to be a political agent."
Author: Cornel West
12. "«Non farà male come credi».Ci sono giorni in cui molti si ritrovano a pronunciare una frase del genere. Dottori, maestre, poliziotti, i professionisti più svariati.La giovane donna rannicchiata sul pavimento non era comunque pronta. Di certo non si sarebbe mai aspettata che a dirle una frase del genere sarebbe stato proprio il suo assassino."
Author: Daniela Barisone

They may be refugees from the interior chased here by the regime's thugs. I sighed with relief. The situation encroaches on us in silence, like a bloodstain, I said. The legal reporter, at some distance now, shouted: "Not blood, Maestro,shit."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Author: John Lothrop Motley
25. "Two aesthetics exist: the passive aesthetic of mirrors and the active aesthetic of prisms. Guided by the former, art turns into a copy of the environment's objectivity or the individual's psychic history. Guided by the latter, art is redeemed, makes the world into its instrument, and forges, beyond spatial and temporal prisons, a personal vision."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges

Author: Kyan Douglas
28. "No le fue fácil meter en la maleta el dia en que hicieron su primera cumunión las tres juntas.La vela, el libro y la foto afuera de la iglesia cupieron muy bien, pero no así el sabor de los tamales y del atole que nacha les había preparado y que habían comido después en compañia de sus amigos y familiares. Cupieron los huesitos de chabacano de colores, pero no así las risas cuando jugaban con ellos en el patio de la escuela, ni la maestra Jovita, ni el columpio, ni el olor de su recámara, ni el del chocolate recién batido. Lo bueno es que tampoco cupieron las palizas, los regaños de Mamá Elena, pues Tita cerró muy fuerte la maleta antes de que se fueran a colar."
Author: Laura Esquivel

Author: Marguerite Yourcenar

Author: Mark Poster
32. "About 1998, when 'Wide World of Sports' and the 'Footy Show' came to an end for me, I couldn't type. When I started architecture, it was a very aesthetic, creative, an almost art process, where lettering and thick line were how you expressed yourself on the paper."
Author: Max Walker
33. "...rado bih na ljetovanje u Brazil. Vozio bih se favelama. Minibus bi bio blindiran. Promatrao bih male osmogodišnje ubojice koji sanjare kako ce postati bosovi; male kurve koje umiru od side u trinaestoj. Ne bih se bojao jer bi me štitio željezni oklop. To bih radio ujutro, a popodne bih išao na plažu, medu prebogate švercere droge i svodnike. Usred tako razuzdanog života, tako gorucih stvari, zaboravio bih melankoliju zapadnjackog covjeka."

36. "It would be a serious mistake to think of Billy Graham or any other television revivalist as a latter-day Jonathan Edwards or Charles Finney. Edwards was one of the most brilliant and creative minds ever produced by America. His contribution to aesthetic theory was almost as important as his contribution to theology. His interests were mostly academic; he spent long hours each day in his study. He did not speak to his audiences extemporaneously. He read his sermons, which were tightly knit and closely reasoned expositions of theological doctrine"
Author: Neil Postman

Author: Paul Nurse
41. "Any system that sees aesthetics as irrelevant, that separates the artist from his product, that fragments the work of the individual, or creates by committee, or makes mincemeat of the creative process will, in the long run, diminish not only the product but the maker as well."
Author: Paul Rand
42. "Without the aesthetic, the computer is but a mindless speed machine, producing effects without substance, form without relevant content, or content without meaningful form."
Author: Paul Rand
43. "There is an anaesthetic of familiarity, a sedative of ordinariness which dulls the senses and hides the wonder of existence. For those of us not gifted in poetry, it is at least worth while from time to time making an effort to shake off the anaesthetic. What is the best way of countering the sluggish habitutation brought about by our gradual crawl from babyhood? We can't actually fly to another planet. But we can recapture that sense of having just tumbled out to life on a new world by looking at our own world in unfamiliar ways."
Author: Richard Dawkins
44. "Not much could have distracted me from coffee, but hearing Julius Caesar quoted at Spencer's certainly did."
Author: Richelle Mead

Author: Sabina Berman
46. "The asymmetry of power that cuteness revolves around is another compelling reminder of how aesthetic categories register social conflict. There can be no experience of any person or object as cute that does not somehow call up the subject's sense of power over those who are less powerful. But, as Lori Merish underscores, the fact that the cute object seems capable of making an affective demand on the subject—a demand for care that the subject is culturally as well as biologically compelled to fulfill—is already a sign that "cute" does not just denote a static power differential, but rather a dynamic and complex power struggle."
Author: Sianne Ngai
47. "An artist who painted a face was now 'playing with the idea of portraiture,' or 'exploring push-pull aesthetics,' or toying with contradictions like 'menacing-slash-playful,' but he or she was never, ever, just painting a face."
Author: Steve Martin
48. "Maybe . . . because for the first time . . . there was a chance I could keep him," I say. Behind a cameraman, I see Haymitch give a sort of huff with relief and I know I've said the right thing. Caesar pulls out a handkerchief and has to take a moment because he's so moved. I can feel Peeta press his forehead into my temple and he asks, "So now that you've got me, what are you going to do with me?" I turn in to him. "Put you somewhere you can't get hurt." And when he kisses me, people in the room actually sigh."
Author: Suzanne Collins
49. "He could think only of the girl and the child. He was certain she had been ready to change her mind, had needed only the command, I, a priest of God, adjure thee, and the grace to hear it--if only they had not forced him to stop where she could witness "God's priest" summarily overruled by "Caesar's traffic cop." Never to him had Christ's Kingship seemed more distant"
Author: Walter M. Miller Jr.
50. "La preguntaEscena IILINCOLN: La guerra no tiene nada que ver. Es mi sensibilidad hacia los sentimientos humanos."
Author: Woody Allen
