3. "Kimi zaman öyle geliyor ki, hayatim boyunca kati hale geçemedim ben, durmadan masalarin, koltuklarin, sehpalarin altina ve yetiskinlerin ayaklarinin dibine çöken, bereket versin havadan agir bir gaz olarak yasadim bunca yili. Yirmi alti yili. Ve bu yirmi alti yil boyunca tek bir seyi istedim, tek bir seyin pesinden kostum, kos dedim ruhuma, kos alçak, kos pislik, o da kostu…Karsima çikan herkesin, kadin erkek, çoluk çocuk, herkesin bana asik olmasini istedim. Iste benim basit gerçegim! Ama artik, içkili ve kalabalik bir aksam yemegi hayal ediyorum. Açik havada, çiplak ampullerin altinda. Güzel seyler yiyip içmisiz. Nefis bir yaz gecesi. Masada kalan son kisi ben olmak istiyorum. Eslerin birlikte kalkmasini seyrediyorum sessizce. Sonra erkeklerden yemege yalniz gelmis kadinlari evlerine birakmalarini rica ediyorum. Masada tek basima kalmak istiyorum. Rüzgarla sallanan çiplak ampüllerin altinda. Agustosböceklerini dinliyorum ve bir parça kuru ekmek atiyorum agzima."

19. "A boy adopts a hero for two reasons: because a hero captivates his soul and serves as a projection of his innermost self; and, because a hero seems to have solved many problems that may worry a boy, or at least demonstrates the capacity to solve them. The hero is an idealization of successful living, even though he may die in a story. The death may be gallant, brave, tragic, or perhaps even foolhardy. But living or dead, a hero is the stylistic embodiment of living on one's own terms – noble terms, grand terms, exciting terms – terms, in short, that complement any youth's uncorrupted, untamed, unabridged projection of what is possible to him in life"
Author: Edward Cline

Il couvre une période allant de 1930 à 1965 environ, révélant au passage la face cachée des monarchies théocratiques et leur cohorte d'arbitraires et d'injustices."

White men already got her, they thinking, You mine now, just wait and see what I'm gone do to you. Colored men ain't got her and ain't never gone get her but they dreaming bout her just the same, with every push of that plow and every chop of that hoe. White or colored, none of em got sense enough to see that she the one owns them. She takes their sweat and blood and the sweat and blood of their women and children and when she done took it all she takes their bodies too, churning and churning em up till they one and the same, them and her."
Author: Hillary Jordan

28. "Neutrinos, they are very small.They have no charge and have no massAnd do not interact at all.The earth is just a silly ballTo them, through which they simply pass,Like dustmaids down a drafty hallOr photons through a sheet of glass.They snub the most exquisite gas,Ignore the most substantial wall,Cold shoulder steel and sounding brass,Insult the stallion in his stall,And, scorning barriers of class,Infiltrate you and me. Like tallAnd painless guillotines they fallDown through our heads into the grass.At night, they enter at NepalAnd pierce the lover and his lassFrom underneath the bed—you callIt wonderful; I call it crass."

Den där Lundborg måste ha blivit skrämd av en neger som barn, trodde Allan."
Author: Jonas Jonasson
31. "Ta bare en slik ting som at syv av ti bolsjeviker ikke kan lese, hadde Fabbe fnyst. Vi kan vel ikke overgi makten til en masse analfabeter. I brevene hjem til familien i Yxhult hadde Allans far likevel forsvart bolsjevikene på dette punktet, for familien skulle bare vite hvordan det russiske alfabetet så ut. Det var ikke noe rart om folk ble analfabeter."
Author: Jonas Jonasson

35. "Levin evleneli üç ay oluyordu. Mutluydu. Ama onun bekledigi mutluluk degildi bu. Adimbasi, eski hayallerinin kirildigini hissediyor; yeni beklenmedik hayal kirikliklariyla karsilasiyordu. Mutluydu, ama aile yasaminin içine girince her an, hayal ettigi seyin bu olmadigini hissediyordu. Sikça, durgun bir gölde küçücük bir kayigin düzgün, mutlu gidisini seyreden bir insanin, bu kayiga kendi bindigi anda hissedeceklerini hissediyordu. Bu kayikta yolculugun yalnizca sakin sakin, sallanmadan oturmak demek olmadigini, kayigin nereye gidecegini aklindan bir an çikarmamanin, durmadan düsünmenin, kafa yormanin; altinda suyun oldugunu, kürek çekmek zorunda oldugunu unutmamasinin, alisik olmadigi için avuç içleri acisa bile kürek çekmesinin gerektigini, bunu seyretmenin hos bir sey oldugunu, ama yapmanin, hos olsa bile, çok güç oldugunu görüyordu.iletisim yayinlari, sayfa:476."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
36. "Secret kabals of vegetarians habitually gather under the sign to exchange contraband from beyond the Vegetable Barrier. In their pinpoint eyes dances their old dream: the Total Fast. One of them reports a new atrocity published without compassionate comment by the editors of Scientific American: "It has been established that, when pulled from the ground, a radish produces an electronic scream." Not even the triple bill for 65? will comfort them tonight. With a mad laugh born of despair, one of them throws himself on a hot-dog stand, disintegrating on the first chew into pathetic withdrawal symptoms. The rest watch him mournfully and then separate into the Montreal entertainment section. The news is more serious than any of them thought. One is ravished by a steak house with sidewalk ventilation. In a restaurant, one argues with the waiter that he ordered "tomato" but then in a suicide of gallantry he agrees to accept the spaghetti, meat sauce mistake."
Author: Leonard Cohen
37. "Ó, kicsikém, mennyire szeretném látni egy cseppet, a hangját hallani, megcsókolni, legalább futólag, ha másképp már nem lehet! Hát igen, hiába, az ilyen gondolatokat nem tudom elnyomni magamban. Nagyon hiányzik nekem, drágám: szívem-lelkem annyira gyötrodik, mióta elszakadtunk egymástól, hogy valóságos testi kínokat érzek."

Author: Robert Adamson
42. "I never quite got the hang of the getting drunk & fondling the thighs [of all the cumbersome young males] business... whether that makes me a gallant & proper gentleman, a cowardly wuss or an unadventurous prude, I cannot make out"

But then, I tend to be broad-minded."She suppressed the urge to dump her porridge in his lap."

46. "Sert bir dil kullanirlardi o korkunç yumusakligi kapsayabilmek için. Nallandi derlerdi. Göçtü, iserken sislendi. Acimasizlik degildi, sahne durusuydu sadece. Oyuncuydular. Biri öldügünde tam ölmek gibi degildi, çünkü tuhaf bir biçimde senaryo geregiydi ve repliklerini ezbere biliyorlardi sanki, ironi katilmis trajedi. Ve bu yüzden farkli adlar yakistirmayi severlerdi, ölüm gerçegini parçalamak için. Cesetleri tekmelerlerdi. Bas parmaklari keserlerdi. Homurtulu bir argoyla konusurlardi."
Author: Tim O'Brien

Full many a gallant bark, when we were lost, weathered the gal."
Author: William James
50. "Fill your tall goblets with white wine and red,And sing brave songs of gallant love and true,Wearing soft robes of emerald and blue,And dance, as I your dances oft have led,And laugh, as I have often laughed with you -And be most merry - after I am dead."
Author: Winifred Holtby
