Author: Arthur Rimbaud
3. "…pues nada define mejor la España de mi siglo, y la de todos, que la imagen del hidalgo pobre y miserable, muerto de hambre, que no trabaja porque es rebaje de su condición; y aunque ayuna a diario sale a la calle con espada, dándose aires, y se echa migas de pan en la barba para que sus vecinos piensen que ha comido."

Quand la foi diminue on ne voit plus de miracles, et la nature pour lors va tout bonnement son petit train."

This is what he truly envies of these people, the luxury of terror as a talking point, and at this moment he feels so sorry for himself that he could break right down and cry."
Author: Ben Fountain

We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won't"

10. "You are put in school to be trained to become exactly what they want you to be: not them, anything but them. They live on a golden island and have the key to the only bridge. Your parents are not millionaires, so it doesn't matter how intelligent you are, you aren't invited to their party. That's the great shame. The idiots have the gold, and the poor die to give it to them. So you better start to laugh, because this world is one big joke written by the few, at the expense of the masses. Look around you, that feeling your life isn't going anywhere? That's the feeling that makes you part of the masses."
Author: Craig Stone

Nous sommes ordinaires nous autres hommes. Ce qui est spécial, c'est vivre, regarder le soir le creux de sa main et savoir que le lendemain sera nouveau, que le tailleur de la nuit coud la peau, raccommode les cals, reprise les accrocs et dégonfle la fatigue." (p. 44)"

27. "Les mots ont parfois le pouvoir des trolls et ils sont capables d'abattre les dieux, ils peuvent sauver des vies et les anéantir. Les mots sont des flèches, des balles de fusil, des oiseaux légendaires lancés à la poursuite des héros, les mots sont des poissons immémoriaux qui découvrent un secret terrifiant au fond de l'abîme, ils sont un filet assez ample pour attraper le monde et embrasser les cieux, mais parfois, ils ne sont rien, des guenilles usées, transpercées par le froid, des forteresses caduques que la mort et le malheur piétinent sans effort. (p. 235)"

(p. 74)"
Author: Jón Kalman Stefánsson

Nowhere on the building, however, was there a poster advertising help, which is really what the Baudelaires needed."
Author: Lemony Snicket
35. "This isn't fair," Klaus said finally, but he said it so quietly that the departing islanders probably did not hear.

43. "Old and alone, thought Pelletier. Just one of thousands of old men on their own. Like the machine célibataire. Like the bachelor who suddenly grows old, or like the bachelor who, when he returns from a trip at light speed, finds the other bachelors grown old or turned into pillars of salt. Thousands, hundreds of thousands of machines célibataires crossing an amniotic sea each day, on Alitalia, eating spaghetti al pomodoro and drinking Chianti or grappa, their eyes half closed, positive that the paradise of retirees isn't in Italy (or, therefore, anywhere in Europe), bachelors flying to the hectic airports of Africa or America, burial ground of elephants. The great cemeteries at light speed. I don't know why I'm thinking this, thought Pelletier. Spots on the wall and spots on the skin, thought Pelletier, looking at his hands. Fuck the Serb."
Author: Roberto Bolaño

Ashryver EyesThe fairest eyes, from legends oldOf brightest blue, ringed with gold Bright blue eyes, ringed with gold. A strangled cry came out of him. How many times had he looked into those eyes? How many times had he seen her avert her gaze, that one bit proof she couldn't hide, from the king?Celaena Sardothien wasn't in league with Aelin Ashryver Galathynius.Celaena Sardothien was Aelin Ashryver Galathynius, heir to the throne and righful Queen of Terrasen."
Author: Sarah J. Maas
46. "Le parti national-socialiste avait fait un fameux cadeau à ces SS-là : ils pouvaient marcher au combat sans aucun risque physique, décrocher les honneurs sans avoir à entendre siffler les balles. L'impunité psychologique était plus difficile à atteindre. Tous les officiers SS avaient des camarades qui s'étaient suicidés. Le haut commandment avait pondu des circulaires pour dénoncer ces pertes futiles : il fallait être simple d'esprit pour croire que les juifs, parce qu'ils n'avaient pas de fusils, ne possédaient pas d'armes d'un autre calibre : des armes sociales, économiques et politiques. En fait, le juif était armé jusqu'aux dents. Trempez votre caractère dans l'acier, soulignaient les circulaires, car l'enfant juif est une bombe à retardement culturelle, la femme juive, un tissu biologique de toutes les trahisons, le mâle juif, un ennemi plus implacable encore qu'aucun Russe ne saurait l'être. (ch. 20)"
Author: Thomas Keneally

Author: William Shakespeare

I asked skeptically.'Well, you might not call them that but they are virtual slaves. They don't receive any pay. They are dealt with harshly. They don't have anywhere else to go''What about the government? Don't they help?' Marcus asked.'The government?' Karl laughed. 'The government my eye! Those generals stay in power several years, make a bundle smuggling drugs, and once they're millionaires, they retire. Some other lousy generals take over from them, and history repeats itself. You think they give a shit what happens to a few lousy Indians?"

I write my novels longhand. I love the feeling of writing; I love to see pen on paper. It feels more creative than typing, and it's a more visual process for me - I can picture the entire scene in my head and am merely writing what I see."
