2. "Dear Father, I pray to you in the name of your dear Son Jesus Christ, and I confess my sins to you and ask for your forgiveness through His death upon the cross in my behalf. I love you and long to serve you with the best of my ability, but my ability is as nothing compared to your great power. The great need for the gospel in our world overwhelms me. Oh, give me your strength and power, love through me, that I might do all for you and others to the glory of your kingdom and your name. Amen."
Author: Andrew Murray
3. "The homeland, the myth of the homeland, becomes a fundamental value for those who have nothing else(...)In a world where power, like wealth, falls to the few, where no merit guarantees a reward and justice becomes a commodity like anything else, the human heart needs fortification. It needs something permanent, something available to everyone, irrespective of their merits, of the political climate, of prestige, authority, or affluence. It may be that for the disinherited, this final place is their place of birth. A law that says we are all born equal is as beautiful as it is impossible to enact. But the fact that we are all born in a particular place is hard to question. For many of us, if not the majority, this is the only incontrovertible foundation of our fate."
Author: Andrzej Stasiuk

6. "May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart.May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain in to joy.And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done. To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.Amen."
Author: Craig Groeschel

9. "De eso se trata con la tecnología: por una parte, consigue despertar nuestro apetito por la inmortalidad; por otra, amenaza con extinción universal. La tecnología es la naturaleza desprovista de lujuria."
Author: Don DeLillo
10. "She had a bracelet on one taper arm, which would fall down over her round wrist. Mr. Thornton watched the replacing of this troublesome ornament with far more attention than he listened to her father. It seemed as if it fascinated him to see her push it up impatiently, until it tightened her soft flesh; and then to mark the loosening—the fall. He could almost have exclaimed—'There it goes, again!"
Author: Elizabeth Gaskell

"Cose assai sorprendenti possono accadere a chi, avendo nella mente un pensiero sgradevole e scoraggiante, abbia il buonsenso di accorgersene e scacciarlo via in tempo sostituendolo con un altro pensiero piacevole e ottimista. Due cose non possono occupare contemporaneamente lo stesso posto.Là dove coltivi la rosa, ragazzo mio,Non può crescere il cardo."
Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett
15. "Os homens de espírito livre, que vivem só para o conhecimento, em breve acharão ter alcançado a sua definitiva posição relativamente à sociedade e ao Estado e, por exemplo, dar-se-ão de bom grado por satisfeitos com um pequeno emprego ou com uma fortuna que chegue à justa para viver; pois arranjar-se-ão para viver de maneira que uma grande tansformação dos bens materiais, até mesmo um derrube da ordem política, não deite também abaixo a sua vida. Em todas essas coisas eles gastam a menor energia possível, de modo a poderem imergir, com todas as forças reunidas e, por assim dizer, com um grande fôlego, no elemento do conhecimento. Podem, assim, ter esperança de mergulhar profundamente e também de, talvez, verem bem até ao fundo."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
16. "¿Y para qué leer? ¿Y para qué escribir? Después de leer cien, mil, diez mil libros en la vida, ¿qué se ha leído? Nada. Decir: yo sólo sé que no he leído nada, después de leer miles de libros, no es un acto de fingida modestia: es rigurosamente exacto, hasta la primera decimal de cero por ciento. Pero ¿no es quizá eso, exactamente, socráticamente, lo que los muchos libros deberían enseñarnos? Ser ignorantes a sabiendas, con plena aceptación. Dejar de ser ignorantes, para llegar a ser ignorantes inteligentes. [...] Quizá, por eso, la medida de la lectura no debe ser el número de libros leídos, sino el estado en que nos dejan.¿Qué demonios importa si uno es culto, está al día o ha leído todos los libros? Lo que importa es cómo se anda, cómo se ve, cómo se actúa, después de leer. Si la calle y las nubes y la existencia de los otros tienen algo que decirnos. Si leer nos hace, físicamente, más reales."
Author: Gabriel Zaid
17. "Un pequeño consejo para ti, Maravilla Alada. No amenaces a la mujer que quieres seducir."
Author: Gena Showalter
18. "... I believe in some sense much akin to the belief of faith, that I noticed, felt, or underwent what I describe—but it may be that the only reason childhood memories act on us so strongly is that, being the most remote we possess, they are the worst remembered and so offer the least resistance to that process by which we mold them nearer and nearer to an ideal which is fundamentally artistic, or at least nonfactual; so it may be that some of these events I describe never occurred at all, but only should have, and that others had not the shades and flavors—for example, of jealousy or antiquity or shame—that I have later unconsciously chosen to give them..."
Author: Gene Wolfe
19. "We must acknowledge that all we have are, at times very differing, interpretations of what Jesus was all about-and these interpretations, as they are collected in the New Testament, have been written in particular situations by men, none of whom questioned the existing patriarchal structure of their societies or of their communities. While some Christ-believing women did challenge certain male-dominated aspects of their church gatherings (see 1 Cor 14:33b-36) it is quite unlikely that they questioned the patriarchal structure of their society, community, and church on a fundamental level. ~ Werner Kahl in Reading Other-Wise, p. 151"
Author: Gerald O. West
20. "I remain optimistic. What we've seen in Europe and the rest of the world is that freedom has a much stronger attraction than radical fundamentalism."
Author: Gijs De Vries

Author: Grant Morrison
22. "I'm actually here with Crispin. You didn't forget about your tutoring date with him, did you?"I wrinkle my nose. "I thought I told him no?"Just then, Crispin comes into view on his way up the walk."I thought I told you no," I call out to him."Ah," he replies, joining James in the doorway. "You did. But I've been told that when a woman says no, she really means yes. So I read between the lines.""Well, whoever told you that was wrong," I say, trying to regain my composure. "Unless you're asking that woman if Brad Pitt is sexier than you. In that case, no always means yes."Crispin looks faintly amused, but James arches an eyebrow. "Always?" he asks.Personally I'm not overly fond of Brad Pitt. But I unconvincingly reply, "I'm just telling it like it is."James shrugs carelessly. "Well, there's no accounting for some people's taste.""Amen," I murmur."
Author: Haley Fisher

Author: Isabel Allende
26. "Toata ziua vezi o multime de oameni.Vorbesti cu ei,razi cu ei,ai chiar prieteni,iubesti cateodata,crezi sa te intelegi,ba si comuniezi si nu pot zice ca uneori nu reusesti s-o faci.Dar toate acestea nu te impiedica sa fii singura,ingrozitor de singura.Esti legata de solitudinea ta pentru todeauna,de todeauna.Sunt eu si numai eu si tot timpul gandesc,deci ma schimb tot timpul,deci nimeni nu ma poate cunoaste cu adevarat.Eu ma stiu,ma inteleg si nu ma stiu si nu ma inteleg decat pe mine,pe nimeni altul decat mine.Eu ma iubesc si ma dispretuiesc si uneori as vrea sa ma bat-atat de dezgustator de imperfecta ma simt."
Author: Jeni Acterian
27. "La morte (o la sua allusione) rende preziosi e patetici gli uomini. Questi si commuovono per la loro condizione di fantasmi; ogni atto che compiono può esser l'ultimo; non c'è volto che non sia sul punto di cancellarsi come il volto d'un sogno. Tutto, tra i mortali, ha il valore dell'irrecuperabile e del casuale. Tra gl'Immortali, invece, ogni atto (e ogni pensiero) è l'eco d'altri che nel passato lo precedettero, senza principio visibile, o il fedele presagio di altri che nel futuro lo ripeteranno fino alla vertigine. Non c'è cosa che non sia come perduta tra infaticabili specchi. Nulla può accadere una sola volta, nulla è preziosamente precario. Ciò ch'è elegiaco, grave, rituale, non vale per gli Immortali."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
28. "And yet the point of view from which his ideas on art had sprung was a simple one: for him, literary schools did not exist; the only thing that mattered was the temperament of the artist; the only thing of interest was the way his brain worked, regardless of the subject he was treating."
Author: Joris Karl Huysmans
29. "... por razones de oficio, ven mucho mundo, no hay nada que los sorprenda. Además, como ya en esta época era sabido, la carne es extremadamente débil, y no tanto por su culpa, pues el espíritu, cuyo deber, en un principio, sería levantar una barrera contra todas las tentaciones, es siempre el primero en ceder, en izar la bandera blanca de la rendición."
Author: José Saramago
30. "I started boxing when I was eight. Me and my brother Rafael started boxing in amateur tournaments when I was 13. My father was an ex-pro boxer."
Author: Juan Manuel Marquez
31. "Cu toata ca majoritatea oamenilor s-au sim?it cît se poate de neferici?i in perioada cît au fost îndragosti?i, aceasta este starea dupa care fiin?a umana tînje?te mai presus de toate."
Author: Julian Fellowes
32. "Yes, we have to seek redemption! Redemption from the divisive politics based on caste and religion, redemption from the corruption which is eating our lives like termites, redemption from misery of poverty, redemption from the sins of our venal politicians. We need good governance and accountability. An individual has to fight for the things he rightfully deserves. People do not need crutches of any kind if the basic conditions of nation are conducive to their growth. It's ridiculous; people are first deprived of basic amenities, denied their dues and then offered carrots to benefit the vote bank politics."
Author: Madhu Vajpayee
33. "Julian is bluff and sturdy, royal; he possesses a gracefully muscular, equine beauty so natural it suggests that beauty itself is a fundamental human condition and not a mutation in the general design."
Author: Michael Cunningham
34. "Es una ilusión ingenua creer que nuestra imagen no es más que una apariencia tras la cual está escondido nuestro yo como la única esencia verdadera, independientemente de los ojos del mundo. Los imagólogos han descubierto con cínico radicalismo que es precisamente todo lo contrario: nuestro yo es una mera apariencia, inaprehensible, nebulosa, mientras que la única realidad, demasiado aprehensible y descriptible, es nuestra imagen a los ojos de los demás. Y lo peor es que no eres su dueño. Primero intentas dibujarla tú mismo, después quieres al menos influir en ella y controlarla, pero en vano: basta con una frase malintencionada y te conviertes para siempre en una caricatura tristemente simple."
Author: Milan Kundera
35. "Llevamos cadenas, aunque nadie las vea, y somos esclavos, aunque los hombres nos llamen libres"
Author: Oscar Wilde
36. "Mas, além da injustiça do seu sistema, vêem-se bem todas as suas funestas consequências, a perturbação em todas as classes da sociedade, uma odiosa e insuportável servidão para todos os cidadãos, porta aberta a todas as invejas, a todos os descontentamentos, a todas as discórdias; o talento e a habilidade privados dos seus estímulos, e, como consequência necessária, as riquezas estancadas na sua fonte; enfim, em lugar dessa igualdade tão sonhada, a igualdade na nudez, na indigência e na miséria. Por tudo o que Nós acabamos de dizer, se compreende que a teoria socialista da propriedade colectiva deve absolutamente repudiar-se como prejudicial àqueles membros a que se quer socorrer, contrária aos direitos naturais dos indivíduos, como desnaturando as funções do Estado e perturbando a tranquilidade pública. Fique, pois, bem assente que o primeiro fundamento a estabelecer por todos aqueles que querem sinceramente o bem do povo é a inviolabilidade da propriedade particular."
Author: Pope Leo XIII
37. "In fact, a fundamental interdependence exists between the personal right to liberty and the personal right to property."
Author: Potter Stewart
38. "Estoy confundido. No consigo leer tus señales. Unas veces si, otras no. Dices que me quieres, pero dices que no quieres. Si te decidieras, sería fantástico, pero me estás haciendo pensar una cosa y, a continuación, al final acabas yendo en una dirección completamente diferente. No sólo ahora, todo el tiempo."
Author: Richelle Mead
39. "In one of the accounts of Jesus's death we read that the curtain in the temple of God—the one that kept people out of the holiest place of God's presence—ripped.One New Testament writer said that this ripping was a picture of how, because of Jesus, we can have new, direct access to God.A beautiful idea.But the curtain ripping also means that God comes out, that God is no longer confined to the temple as God was previously."
Author: Rob Bell
40. "Forget not, O Lord, that I am one of those whom Thou hast created, and with Thine own blood hast redeemed. I repent me of my sins: I will strive to amend my ways."
Author: Saint Ambrose
41. "Moja istraživanja trajala su citavu godinu i najzad sam zakljucio da samo reljef boje, znalacki stavljen na platno, može da da oku pravi utisak. To je bio period koji su moji roditelji nazvali „kameno doba". Upotrebljavao sam kamenje da bih dobio, na primer, veoma blistav oblak. Lepio sam kamenje na platno, a zatim ga bojio. Jedan od mojih najvecih uspeha u ovom žanru je bio zalazak sunca sa kao krv crvenim oblacima. Nebo je bilo prepuno kamenja svih dimenzija, od kojih su neki bili veliki kao pesnica. Ova slika je dugo visila na zidu porodicne trpezarije i secam se da nas je cesto, u tišini posle vecere, iznenadivao šum kamena koji bi, odlepivši se sa slike, padao na pod. Moja majka bi prestala da šije, a otac ju je uvek umirivao recima: -Nije ništa, to je samo još jedan kamen pao sa neba našeg deteta."
Author: Salvador Dalí
42. "— ¿Me estas siguiendo? —ella pregunta, pero no se encuentra con mi mirada. —Si —le digo.— ¿Por qué?— ¿Honestamente?Ella me mira, sus cejas enarcadas. Le doy la única respuesta honesta y verdadera que tengo.—Estas donde yo quiero estar."
Author: Simone Elkeles
43. "Pero ¿qué hacen los ganaderos del Distrito 10, que van vestidos de vacas, con unos cinturones llameantes? ¿Asarse a la parrilla? Lamentable."
Author: Suzanne Collins
44. "Henceforth the crisis of urbanism is all the more concretely a social and political one, even though today no force born of traditional politics is any longer capable of dealing with it. Medico-sociological banalities on the 'pathology of housing projects,' the emotional isolation of people who must live in them, or the development of certain extreme reactions of rejection, chiefly among youth, simply betray the fact that modern capitalism, the bureaucratic society of consumption, is here and there beginning to shape its own setting. This society, with its new towns, is building the terrain that accurately represents it, combining the conditions most suitable for its proper functioning, while at the same time translating in space, in the clear language of organization of everyday life, its fundamental principle of alienation and constraint. It is likewise here that the new aspects of its crisis will be manifested with the greatest clarity."
Author: Tom McDonough
45. "Per tutti questi secoli le donne hano avuto la funzione di specchi, dal potere magico e delizioso di riflettere raddoppiata la figura dell'uomo. [...]Perciò Napoleone e Mussolini insistono tanto enfaticamente sull'inferiorità delle donne, perché se esse non fossero inferiori cesserebbero di ingrandire loro. Questo serve in parte a spiegare la necessità che gli uomini spesso sentono delle donne. E serve a spiegare come li fa sentire inquieti la critica femminile; come a lei sia impossibile dir loro che il libro è brutto o il quadro difettoso, o cose del genere, senza provocare assai più dolore e suscitare assai più rabbia di quanta potrebbe suscitarne un uomo con la stessa critica. Perché se la donna comincia a dire la verità, la figura nello specchio rimpicciolisce; l'uomo diventa meno adatto alla vita."
Author: Virginia Woolf
46. "Ce era asta? Ce însemna asta? Oare lucrurile puteau sa-?i întinda mâna, a?a, ?i sa te zgâl?âie; lama de cu?it putea sa taie? pumnul sa in?face? Nu exista o siguran?a? Nicio posibilitate sa înve?i pe de rost caile vie?ii? Nicio îndrumare, niciun adapost, totul era miracol, saltul din vârful unui pisc în spa?iu? E posibil ca asta sa fie via?a, chiar pentru oamenii mai în vârsta? Surprinzatoare, nea?teptata, necunoscuta?" O clipa avu impresia ca daca s-ar ridica amândoi, aici, acum, pe paji?te, ?i ar cere o explica?ie, de ce e via?a atât de scurta, de ce e atât de inexplicabila, daca ?i-ar formula întrebarile vehement, a?a cum ar fi îndrepta?ite sa o faca doua fiin?e umane bine o?elite, fa?a de care nimic nu trebuie ascuns, atunci frumuse?ea s-ar desfa?ura; vidul s-ar umple; arabescurile acelea de?arte s-ar împreuna într-o forma; daca ei doi ar striga destul de tare, doamna Ramsay s-ar întoarce. "Doamna Ramsay! striga cu glas tare. Doamna Ramsay!" Lacrimile i se rostogoleau pe obraji."
Author: Virginia Woolf
47. "The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament."
Author: Vladimir Lenin
48. "Use of a mentally ill person's involuntary confession is antithetical to the notion of fundamental fairness embodied in the due process clause."
Author: William J. Brennan Jr.
49. "I asked the girl if she could bring a sister for me. She did. Sister Maria Teresa. It was a very slow evening. We discussed the New Testament. We agreed that He was very well adjusted for an only child."
Author: Woody Allen
50. "Alleviation of suffering is my fundamental principle."
Author: Yusuf Hamied
