1. "Adalah semua orang Dukuh Paruk–termasuk Srintil–mereka tidak tahu apa-apa tentang sistem atau jalinan birokrasi kekuasaan. Dalam wawasan mereka semua priayi adalah sama, yakni tangan kekuasaan. Setiap priayi boleh datang atas nama kekuasaan, tak peduli mereka adalah hansip, mantri pasar, opas kacamatan, atau seorang pejabat dinas perkebunan negara esperti Marsusi. Dan ketika kekuasaan, menjadi aspek yang paling dominan dalam kehidupan masyarakat, orang Dukuh Paruk seperti Srintil tidak mungkin mengerti perbedaan antara polisi, tentara, dan pejabat perkebunan. Semuanya adalah tangan kekuasaan dan Srintil tidka mungkin bersikap lain kecuali tunduk dan pasrah."
Author: Ahmad Tohari

Your face reminds me of someone dear to me.""Really?" wizened Cadilar said, hesitating."Yes," Wit said, waving him on, "my horse. Ah, Brightlord Neteb, you smell unique today—did youattack a wet whitespine, or did one just sneeze on you? Lady Alami! No, please, don't speak—it's mucheasier to maintain my illusions regarding your intelligence that way. And Brightlord Dalinar." Wit noddedto Dalinar as he passed. "Ah, my dear Brightlord Taselin.

Author: Brandon Sanderson
7. "Can't you just relax," she asked him, "just for a little while?""The rules—""Everyone else—""I cannot be everyone else!" Dalinar said, more sharply than he intended. "If I ignore our code and ethics, what am I, Navani? The other highprinces and lighteyes deserve recrimination for what they do, and I have let them know it. If I abandon my principles, then I become something far worse than they. A hypocrite!"

12. "Levanté la mirada y me quedé mudo. Un colosal laberinto de puentes, pasajes y estantes repletos de cientos de miles de libros se alzaba formando una gigantesca biblioteca de perspectivas imposibles. Una madeja de túneles atravesaba la inmensa estructura que parecia ascender en espiral hacia una gran cúpula de cristal de la que se filtraban cortinas de luz y tinieblas. Pude ver algunas siluetas aisladas que recorrían pasarelas y escalinatas o examinaban con detalle los pasadizos de aquella catedral hecha de libros y palabras."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Kanal skrzy sie sloncem, wokól smigaja skutery i rowerzysci-kamikadze, ze wszystkich stron trajkoca turysci. Plac pachnie woda, ziemia, rozgrzanym metalem i spalinami z zimnych katalizatorów, jak pierdnieciem; w tle podzwaniaja tramwaje, nad glowa fruwaja ptaki."
Author: Charles Stross

18. "Anliyorsun degil mi, atesli mektuplarim, atesli çagrilarim, atesli tutkularim, yanmis ellerimle kagida döktügüm bütün bir yangin -en çok korktugum sey, bütün bunlarin bir parça yanmis kagida dönüsebilme olasiligi. Dünyadaki tüm kagitlar sonunda ya kömürlesmistir ya da suda yumusamistir, çünkü atesin üstüne hep sulari püskürtür.Malina: Eskiler, aptal biri için, onun kalbi yoktur, derlerdi. Aklin ve zekanin bulundugu yer diye kalbi göstermislerdi.Kalbini her seye açmak, tüm söylevlerini ve mektuplarini atese bogmak zorunda degilsin.Ama ne kadar çok insanin yalnizca kafasi var ve kafasindan çok hiçbir seyi yok, bir bilsen! Ve onlarin kalpleri yok."
Author: Ingeborg Bachmann
19. "Malina'yla iliskim yillar boyu sonuç vermeyen karsilasmalardan, düsünülebilecek en büyük yanlis anlamalardan ve birkaç budalaca düsten ibaret kaldi - yani baska insanlarla aramda olanlardan çok daha büyük yanlis anlamalar, demek istedigim. Ama su da var ki, daha baslangiçtan onun egemenligi altina girmistim; benim felaketin olacagini, Malina'nin yerinin, o daha hayatima girmezden önce Malina tarafindan alindigini erken anlamis olmaliyim. Esirgendigim tek sey, onunla çok erken bir araya gelmekti, ya da ben kendimi bundan korudum."
Author: Ingeborg Bachmann
20. "[Dessie's] shop was a unique institution in Salinas. It was a woman's world. Here all the rules, and the fears that created the iron rules, went down. The door was closed to men. It was a sanctuary where women could be themselves- smelly, wanton, mystic, conceited, truthful, and interested. The whalebone corsets came off at Dessie's, the sacred corsets that moulded and warped woman-flesh into goddess-flesh. At Dessie's they were women who went to the toilet and overate and scratched and farted. And from this freedom came laughter, roars of laughter."
Author: John Steinbeck
21. "The reverse is also true: many a trip continues long after movement in time and space has ceased. I remember a man in Salinas who in his middle years traveled to Honolulu and back, and that journey continued for the rest of his life. We could watch him in his rocking chair on his front porch, his eyes squinted, half-closed, traveling to Honolulu."
Author: John Steinbeck
22. "Salinas for the alkali which was white as salt."
Author: John Steinbeck
23. "El lacayo pide; el digno merece. Aquél solicita del favor lo que este espera del mérito. Ser digno significa no pedir lo que se merece, ni aceptar lo inmerecido. Mientras los serviles trepan entre las malezas del favoritismo, los austeros ascienden por la escalinata de sus virtudes. O no ascienden por ninguna."
Author: José Ingenieros
24. "Mi secretaria lloraba , leyendo el decreto por el cual me dejaban cesante. Para consolarme decidì abstraer sus lágrimas, por un rato me deleité con esas diminutas fuentes cristalinas que nacían en el aire y se aplastaban en los biblioratos, el secante y el boletín oficial. La vida está llena de hermosuras así."
Author: Julio Cortázar
25. "Oh Maga, en cada mujer parecida a vos se agolpaba como un silencio ensordecedor, una pausa filosa y cristalina que acababa por derrumbarse tristemente, como un paraguas mojado que se cierra."
Author: Julio Cortázar
26. "Le pareció que dulcemente una de las dos lloraba. Debía ser ella porque sintió mojadas las mejillas, y el pómulo mismo doliéndole como si tuviera allí un golpe. También el cuello, y de pronto los hombros, agobiados por fatigas incontables. Al abrir los ojos (tal vez gritaba ya) vio que se habían separado. Ahora sí gritó. De frío, porque la nieve le estaba entrando por los zapatos rotos, porque yéndose camino de la plaza iba Alina Reyes lindísima en su sastre gris, el pelo un poco suelto contra el viento, sin dar vuelta la cara y yéndose. (Lejana)"
Author: Julio Cortázar
27. "And what if Aaron drank from the unwilling? If he killed men and women – what then?""I don't know that he did." Kalina turned to face him. They drove on. "It sounds like he stuck to Vampire Wine. Which is more than I can say for you.""Listen," said Jaegar. "You eat your steak. I'll eat my humans. You don't need to get self-righteous with me. As far as I'm concerned – you're just food.""I'm food that can talk. And in any case – you don't seem to make up your mind whether you want to sleep with me or have me for dinner.""Both, really."
Author: Kailin Gow
28. "Kalina stood staring a moment after he had gone, trying to piece together what had happened. A stranger – a strange smell, like the bark of trees, or the musk of the woods – an arm around her, something against her lips. She could not remember the order of events – a kiss, then a rustle in the trees, then his arms, then a stranger – or was it"
Author: Kailin Gow
29. "Don't worry…three vampire meanies and a horse won't keep me away from you." Kalina looked at Jaegar. Jaegar shrugged. "If you don't get it, it's before your time." "And what time is that?" "The Dark Ages…that's why you've never heard of it before. Everything was kept in the dark…"
Author: Kailin Gow
30. "Alina era tan poco aficionada a todas esas fruslerías sobrenaturales como yo. A ambas nos encantaba leer y ver una película de vez en cuando, pero siempre nos decantábamos por los misterios corrientes, las historias de suspense o las comedias románticas, nunca por las extravagancias de lo paranormal.¿Vampiros? ¡Puaj! Muertos, y con eso ya está dicho todo. ¿Viajar en el tiempo? Ja, yo prefiero las comodidades domésticas a tener que andar por ahí con un highlander que parece un armario ropero y tiene los modales de un cavernícola. ¿Hombres lobo? Oh, por favor, ¡que memez! ¿Qué mujer va a querer enrollarse con un hombre que está regido por su perro interior? Como si todos los hombres no lo estuvieran de todas formas, incluso sin el gen licantrópico."
Author: Karen Marie Moning
31. "Barrons Books and Baubles had been ransacked! Tables were overturned, books torn from shelves and strewn everywhere, baubles broken. Even my little TV behind the counter had been destroyed. "Barrons?" I called warily. It was night and the lights were on. My illusory Alina had told me more than an hour had passed. Was it the same night, nearly dawn? Or was it the night following our theft attempt? Had Barrons come back from Wales yet? Or was he still there, searching for me? When I‘d been so rudely ripped from reality, who or what had come through those basement doors? I heard footsteps, boots on hardwood, and turned expectantly toward the connecting doors. Barrons was framed in the doorway. His eyes were black ice. He stared at me a moment, raking me from head to toe. "Nice tan, Ms. Lane. So, where the fuck have you been for the past month?"
Author: Karen Marie Moning
32. "No," she said firmly. "I want you to stay when I go. Break tradition again, my love, and burn me alone in the home we built. I don't want you with me. You aren't done. You see too far ahead. You need to make the world in your thoughts a real one that our children can fly in." - Matalina to Jenks"
Author: Kim Harrison
33. "Under the disguise amulet, Jenks looked very different with black hair and a darker complexion. He had his new aviator jacket on over the T-shirt he had bought in the previous store, making him a sexy, leggy, hunk o' pixy ass in jeans. No wonder he had fifty-four kids and Matalina smiled like Mona Lisa."
Author: Kim Harrison
34. "He grinned. "That's because pixies are ever-after. We're magic, baby. Just ask Matalina."
Author: Kim Harrison
35. "Malinalli, como Quetzalcóatl, ao confrontar-se com o seu lado obscuro ganhou consciência da sua luz. A sua vontade de ser una com o cosmos fez com que os limites do seu corpo desaparecessem. Os seus pés, em contacto com a água inundada pela luz da lua, foram os primeiros a experimentar a mudança. Deixaram de a conter. O seu espírito fundiu-se com o da água e derramou-se pelo ar. A sua pele expandiu-se ao máximo, permitindo-lhe mudar de forma e integrar-se com tudo o que a rodeava. Foi nardo, foi laranjeira, foi pedra, foi aroma de copal, foi milho, foi peixe, foi ave, foi sol, foi lua. Abandonou este mundo."
Author: Laura Esquivel
36. "I told them you hate herring.""Why?""And that you love plum cake. And that Ana Kuya took a switch to you when you ruined your spring slippers jumping in puddles."I winced. "Why would you tell them all that?""I wanted to make you human," he said. "All they see when they look at you is the Sun Summoner. They see a threat, another powerful Grisha like the Darkling. I want them to see a daughter or a sister or a friend. I want them to see Alina."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
37. "I hope you don't expect fairness from me, Alina. It isn't one of my specialties."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
38. "Mal shouted. I heard scuffling behind me and knew Tolya had taken hold of him. "Alina!" His voice was raw white wood, torn from the heart of a tree. I did not turn."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
39. "I don't care if you danced naked on the roof of the Little Palace with him. I love you, Alina, even the part of you that loved him."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
40. "I'm sorry it took me so long to see you, Alina. But I see you now."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
41. "Just you and me.""Really?""It's always just you and me, Alina."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
42. "You just punched a prince, Alina. I guess we can add one more act of treason to our list."I shook out my sore hand. My knuckles smarted. "First of all, are we so sure he really is a prince? And second, you're just jealous.""Of course I'm jealous. I thought I was going to get to punch him. That isn't the point."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
43. "You were like a stranger, Alina. Beautiful," he said. "Terrible."
Author: Leigh Bardugo
44. "He simply painted the portrait of some aristocratic Mesalina, and was tactful enough to let Cupid hold the mirror in which she tests her majestic allure with cold satisfaction. He looks as though his task were becoming burdensome enough. The picture is painted flattery. Later an 'expert' in the Rococo period baptized the lady with the name of Venus. The furs of the despot in which Titian's fair model wrapped herself, probably more for fear of a cold than out of modesty, have become a symbol of the tyranny and cruelty that constitute woman's essence and her beauty."
Author: Leopold Von Sacher Masoch
45. "I will tell you sincerely and without exaggeration that the best part of lunch today at the NASA Ames cafeteria is the urine. It is clear and sweet, though not in the way mountain streams are said to be clear and sweet. More in the way of Karo syrup. The urine has been desalinated by osmotic pressure. Basically it swapped molecules with a concentrated sugar solution. Urine is a salty substance (though less so than the NASA Ames chili), and if you were to drink it in an effort to rehydrate yourself, it would have the opposite effect. But once the salt is taken care of and the distasteful organic molecules have been trapped in an activated charcoal filter, urine is a restorative and surprisingly drinkable lunchtime beverage. I was about to use the word unobjectionable, but that's not accurate. People object. They object a lot."
Author: Mary Roach
46. "Begant metams, ji ims ižvelgti visuose šiuose panašumuose žmoniu suvienodejima (žmones noredami pasibuciuoti visi iki vieno sustoja toje pacioje vietoje, visi rengiasi vienodai, girdami moteri vartoja tas pacias metaforas) ir alinama ivykiu monotonija (ivykiu, kurie yra tik amžinas to paties ivykio pasikartojimas); taciau budama paaugle ji kaupia šiuos sutapimus tarsi stebukla, trokšdama ispeti ju reikšmes."
Author: Milan Kundera
47. "Aunt Fostalina says when she first came to America she went to school during the day and worked nights at Eliot's hotels, cleaning hotel rooms together with people from countries like Senegal, Cameroon, Tibet, the Philippines, Ethiopia, and so on. It was like the damn United Nations there, she likes to say."
Author: NoViolet Bulawayo
48. "Todo cansa en esta vida, hasta la felicidad, me dijeron una vez. Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así.Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así. Solo era una pequeña hipótesis de que el encanto en la vida es sufrir un poco para regresar a la paz y valorarla. Los momentos de infelicidad son el combustible de la felicidad. En lo personal, me gustan las relaciones largas con todos sus defectos y repentinas pero momentáneas faltas de adrenalina. Al final es lo mejor. El test del tiempo siempre arroja que es mucho más satisfactorio lo que obtienes de relaciones largas robustecidas a causa de los problemas y sus maravillosas reconciliaciones, que lo que te pueden dar los fragmentados y espaciados fogonazos de la soltería."
Author: Pedro Suárez Vértiz
49. "Vaikai baisesni už teroristus. Jie nuolat rekia, kad yra priklausomi nuo tevu, taciau iš tikruju yra visiškai atvirkšciai — tai tevai yra vaiku ikaitai. Meile, prisirišimas, stiprus nuosavybes jausmas — komplektas, kuris labai slegia tevus, alina juos ir varžo. Vaikai tevus pradeda myleti, arba supranta, kad tai yra šis tas daugiau nei edalas ir lova, velai, tik persirite per savojo gyvenimo viduri, dažniausiai, kai patys tampa tevais. Vaikas yra uždelsto veikimo bomba — jam gali bet kas ir bet kada atsitikti, ir joks tevas negali savo vaiko nuo to apsaugoti. Vaikas gali susirgti, gali tapti melagiu, šunsnukiu, vagimi, žudiku, politiku, — ir tevas visa tai turi pakelti, išverti ir netgi — nesiliauti myleti. Nes jis nebegali liautis. Jis jau yra inikes i savo vaika kaip i narkotikus."
Author: Sigitas Parulskis
50. "It was warm and salty, chalky and bittersweet. It tasted like the blood of some old, old thing. I tried not to think about how much at the mercy of these strange people I now was. But in fact my courage was failing. Both Dona Catalina and the guide's mocking eyes had slowly gone cold and mantislike. A wave of insect sound sweeping up the river seemed to splatter the darkness with shards of sharpedged light. I felt my lips go numb. Trying not to appear as loaded as I felt, I crossed to my hammock and lay back. Behind my closed eyelids there was a flowing river of magenta light. It occurred to me in a kind of dream mental pirouette that a helicopter must be landing on top of the hut, and this was the last impression I had. When I regained consciousness I appeared to myself to be surfing on the inner curl of a wave of brightly lit transparent information several hundred feet high. Exhilaration gave way to terror as I realised that my wave was speeding toward a rocky coastline."
