1. "Kids don't act right. Sure it's embarrassing when it happens but any reasonable person won't fault a parent when a kid throws a fit. However, when a child doesn't act right and a parent doesn't act at all then we've got a problem.Parents get up off of your rears and parent your children. Please I beg you stop these little bedlamites from running amuck at church, in restaurants, at the movies, in the store or really anywhere that I may be."
Author: Aaron Blaylock
2. "J'ai connu un homme qui a donné vingt ans de sa vie à une étourdie, qui lui a tout sacrifié, ses amitiés, son travail, la décence même de sa vie, et qui reconnut un soir qu'il ne l'avait jamais aimée. Il s'ennuiyait, voilà tout, il s'ennuiyait, comme la plupart des gens. Il s'était donc créé de toutes pièces une vie de complications et de drames. Il faut que quelque chose arrive, voilà l'explication de la plupart des engagements humains."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "Je l'aimais beaucoup. On ne peut pas dire cela à son amoureux. Dommage. De ma part, l'aimer beaucoup, c'était beaucoup. Il me rendait heureuse. J'étais toujours joyeuse de le voir. J'avais pour lui de l'amitié, de la tendresse. Quand il n'était pas là, il ne me manquait pas. Telle était l'équation de mon sentiment pour lui et je trouvais cette histoire merveilleuse. C'est pourquoi je redoutais des déclarations qui eussent exigés une réponse ou, pire, une réciprocité."
Author: Amélie Nothomb

Author: Bob Ong
8. "We have made men proud of most vices, but not of cowardice. Whenever we have almost succeeded in doing so, God permits a war or an earthquake or some other calamity, and at once courage becomes so obviously lovely and important even in human eyes that all our work is undone, and there is still at least one vice of which they feel genuine shame. The danger of inducing cowardice in our patients, therefore, is lest we produce real self-knowledge and self-loathing, with consequent repentance and humility."
Author: C.S. Lewis
9. "A háborúnak nincs emlékezete, mivel senkinek sincs bátorsága ahhoz, hogy megértse, mi is történt valójában; aztán egyszer csak nem marad szemtanú, aki elmesélhetné; eljön a pillanat, amikor már senki sem emlékszik, s akkor kezdodik elölrol az egész, új arccal, új néven, és azt is felfalja, amit maga után hagyott."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
10. "Also zahle ich dem Taxifahrer seinen Fahrpreis und gebe ihm noch ein dickes Trinkgeld, damit er in Zukunft weiß, wer der Feind ist."
Author: Christian Kracht
11. "Die Judenfrage,' it used to be called, even by Jews. 'The Jewish Question.' I find I quite like this interrogative formulation, since the question—as Gertrude Stein once famously if terminally put it—may be more absorbing than the answer. Of course one is flirting with calamity in phrasing things this way, as I learned in school when the Irish question was discussed by some masters as the Irish 'problem.' Again, the word 'solution' can be as neutral as the words 'question' or 'problem,' but once one has defined a people or a nation as such, the search for a resolution can become a yearning for the conclusive. Endlösung: the final solution."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
12. "Lily Thomas lay in bed when the alarm went off on a snowy January morning in Squaw Valley. She opened her eyes for just an instant and saw the thick snow swirling beyond the windows of the house her father had rented, and for a fraction of an instant, she wanted to roll over and go back to sleep. She could hear the dynamite blasts in the distance to prevent avalanches, and just from a glance, she knew what kind of day it was. You could hardly see past the windows in the heavy blizzard, and she knew that if the mountain was open, it wouldn't be for long. But she loved the challenge of skiing in heavy snow. It would be a good workout, and she didn't want to miss a single day with one of her favorite instructors, Jason Yee."
Author: Danielle Steel
13. "I review all I know, but can synthesize no meaning. When I doze, the Fact, the certain accomplished calamity, wakes me roughly like a brutal nurse. I see it crouching inflexibly in a corner of the ceiling. It comes down in geometrical diagonal like lightning.It says, I remain, I AM, I shall never cease to be: your memory will grow a deathly glaze: you will forget, you will fade out, but I cannot be undone.Thus every quarter hour it puts the taste of death in my mouth, and shows me, but not gently, how I go whoring after oblivion."
Author: Elizabeth Smart
14. "I do not forgive myself for being born. It is as if, creeping into this world, I had profaned a mystery, betrayed some momentous pledge, committed a fault of nameless gravity. Yet in a less assured mood, birth seems a calamity I would be miserable not having known."
Author: Emil Cioran
15. "Ich bereute meinen Hochhackigen abgestreift zu haben, bevor ich meinen Fuß auf seine Brust stellte – ich hätte ihm damit sehr schön wehtun können. Nachdem er meinen Namen nun schon mal in einem Atemzug mit Nutten gebraucht hatte."
Author: Emilia Polo
16. "Du musst deine Grenzen kennen, damit du sie überwinden kannst. Du möchtest doch gewinnen, oder?"
Author: Erin Morgenstern
17. "Der Mensch der keine Zeit hat, und das ist eines unserer Kennzeichen, kann schwerlich Glück haben. Notwendig verschliessen sich ihm grosse Quellen und Mächte wie die Muse, des Glaubens, der Schönheit in Kunst und Natur. Damit entgeht ihm die Krönung, der Segen der Arbeit, der in Nicht-Arbeit, und die Ergänzung, der Sinn des Wissens, der im Nicht-Wissen liegt."
Author: Ernst Jünger
18. "Az ember vagy elfogadja Hollywoodot olyannak, amilyen, mint például én tettem, vagy megvetoen legyint rá, ahogyan olyasmire szokás, amit nem értünk."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
19. "Und so schleppe ich mein Leben damit hin, das zu tun, was ich nicht will, und das zu erträumen, was ich nicht haben kann, absurd wie eine stehen-gebliebene öffentliche Uhr. Nur die zarte, aber feste Sensibilität, der lange, aber vollauf bewusste Traum, bilden in ihrer Gesamtheit mein Halbschattenprivileg."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
20. "So blieb [den individuellen Aufsteigern aus dem Arbeitermilieu] allein die Imitation der Verhaltensweisen und Ideologien von der mindestens heimlich bewunderten privilegierten Schicht, in die einzutreten schließlich Ziel des langen Weges war. Doch das Original mag den Nachahmer nicht, verhält sich bestenfalls gönnerhaft-spöttisch, von oben herab. Der Kopierende gibt sich alle erdenkliche Mühe, wird oft gar zum aggressiven Apologeten des Vorbildes, was – so Norbert Elias – »zu ganz spezifischen Verkrümmungen des Bewußtseins und der Haltung« führt. Der sozialdemokratische Kotau vor den Imperativen der Privatisierung, der finanzkapitalistischen Entgrenzungen, der Steuerbefreiung für Kapitalinvestoren in den Jahren 1999-2005 – er mag damit zu tun haben."
Author: Franz Walter
21. "Wir haben die Kunst, damit wir nicht an der Wahrheit zugrunde gehen."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
22. "A varázslat csak szósz, amit a bolondok a kudarcra csorgatnak, hogy elvegyék saját tehetségtelenségük ízét."
Author: George R.R. Martin
23. "Egymásra néztek, azzal a mozdulatlan, éles, belehatoló tekintettel, amikor két lélek komolyan hiszi: eggyé tud olvadni. Egymást keresték a másik szemében, a szeme mögött, a létezés megfejhetetlenségében s ismeretlenjében. Néma, makacs kérdéssel kutatták egymást. Mit jelent majd egyik a másiknak? Milyen lesz az élet, amit együtt kezdenek? Milyen örömöket, boldogságot, csalódást tartogatnak egymás számára a házasság hosszú, felbonthatatlan, bizalmas kettesében? És mind a ketten azt érezték, hogy még sohasem látták egymást."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
24. "Jeanne úgy érezte, lelke kinyílik, a megfoghatatlant érti most; és amint a mezon szerteszórva ott látta az apró fényeket, hirtelen megvilágosodott benne, mennyire magányos minden ember – hogy minden csak elszakítja, messzire sodorja oket attól, amit szeretnek."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
25. "Conceive a man by nature and misfortune prone to a pallid hopelessness, can any business seem more fitted to heighten it than that of continually handling these dead letters and assorting them for the flames? For by the cart-load they are annually burned. Sometimes from out the folded paper the pale clerk takes a ring:—the finger it was meant for, perhaps, moulders in the grave; a bank-note sent in swiftest charity:—he whom it would relieve, nor eats nor hungers any more; pardon for those who died despairing; hope for those who died unhoping; good tidings for those who died stifled by unrelieved calamities. On errands of life, these letters speed to death. 250 Ah Bartleby! Ah humanity!"
Author: Herman Melville
26. "Damit hing auch sein Bedürfnis nach Einsamkeit und nach Unabhängigkeit zusammen. Nie hat ein Mensch ein tieferes, leidenschaftlicheres Bedürfnis nach Unabhängigkeit gehabt als er. In seiner Jugendzeit, als er noch arm war und Mühe hatte, sein Brot zu verdienen, zog er es vor, zu hungern und in zerrissenen Kleidern zu gehen, nur um dafür ein Stückchen Unabhängigkeit zu retten."
Author: Hermann Hesse
27. "Ralph Nimmo carecía de título universitario y se enorgullecía de ello. -Un título [...] es el primer paso de un recorrido calamitoso. Como no quieres desperdiciarlo, pasas al trabajo de graduado y a la investigación doctoral. Terminas por ser un absoluto ignorante de todo, excepto en tu estrechísima especialidad."
Author: Isaac Asimov
28. "He could not even take comfort in knowing that he had spent most of his adult life in dread of calamities had not materialized, because, by the law of averages, one of them was bound to come true one day."
Author: J.K. Rowling
29. "A gyerekek rengeteg örömmel járnak, meg minden, ahogy mondani szokták, de nagy szívfájdalommal is, folyton-folyvást, és attól tartok, ez akkor sincs másképp, ha felnonek; de ezt már nem szokták mondani. Látjuk, hogy bizonytalanok valamiben, és ez fáj. Látjuk bennük a jó szándékot, hogy segíteni akarnak, és ki akarják venni a részüket valamibol, de nem tehetik, és ez is fáj. Fáj a derujük, az egyszeru kis tréfáik és az átlátszó hazugságaik, a csalódásaik és az illúzióik, a reményeik és az apró baklövéseik, az ártatlanságuk, az értetlenségük, a tiszta, logikus kérdéseik, sot még az esetleges rossz gondolataik is. Fáj, ha belegondolunk, mennyit kell még tanulniuk, hogy milyen hosszú út áll még elottük, amit senki nem taposhat ki helyettük, még ha évszázadok óta ezt tesszük is, mert értelmetlennek véljük, hogy mindenkinek a nulláról kelljen kezdenie. Ugyan mi értelme mindenkinek ugyanazokon a kellemetlenségeken és felismeréseken átesnie, örökkön-örökké?"
Author: Javier Marías
30. "So we get a plan," I said. "Any suggestions?""Blow up the building," Kincaid said without looking up. "That works good for vampires. Then soak what's left in gasoline. Set it on fire. Then blow it all up again.""For future reference, I was sort of hoping for a suggestion that didn't sound like it came from that Bolshevik Muppet with all the dynamite."
Author: Jim Butcher
31. "Put the ballast of biblical truthin the belly of our little boats,lest the crashing waves of calamityof these changing timescause us to capsize in the sea of trouble"
Author: John Piper
32. "Because time does the job, dynamite can't touch. (Samuel Hamilton)"
Author: John Steinbeck
33. "How can God be happy and decree calamity? Consider that he has the capacity to view the world through two lenses. Through the narrow one he is grieved and angered at sin and pain. Through the wide one he sees evil in relation to its eternal purposes. Reality is like a mosaic. The parts may be ugly in themselves, but the whole is beautiful."
Author: Jonathan Edwards
34. "Casting a ballot is your irrevocable right, and no one will ever deny you that right, but just as you tell children not to play with matches, so we warn whole peoples of the dangers of playing with dynamite."
Author: José Saramago
35. "Speaking of 'things,' Mary tells me that Nick is like a keg of dynamite ready to explode at the first spark. She says you're bearing up under the strain marvelously.

"Mary, what's the atmosphere like up there this morning?""Positively explosive," she chuckled."Is Nick going to be in the office this afternoon?""Yes,why?""Because I've decided to light a match under him and see what happens.""Jimmy,don't!" she said in a low, sharp voice."See you a little before five, beautiful," he laughed, ignoring her wanring."
Author: Judith McNaught
36. "Ez nem én vagyok. Ez nem lehet énnekem az arcom. Az se én voltam, aki ezt az arcot eloször fölpróbáltam. Se akkor, se most – csak amit az emberek kinéznek belolem, úgy nézek ki. Mintha kinézetre sose lettem volna én."
Author: Ken Kesey
37. "Hát csókolom, drága kicsikém. Ha tud, szeressen továbbra is, ez az egyetlen dolog, amit kívánok magamnak, amitol megbékél a lelkem. Magának persze még sok mást is kívánok: egy szó, mint száz, minden maga körül forog, magától, magáért, maga által van."
Author: Madame De Sévigné
38. "…a „férfiasság", úgy vélte, nem az, hogy tönkremegyünk valamiben, amit nem bírunk elviselni – talán férfiasabb az alku, a megoldás, amennyire ez már lehetséges, s a „következményeket levonni" néha annyi, min megalázni magunkat és megmutatni sebeinket; még ha valamilyen láthatatlan kaszinó, a maga íratlan szabálykönyvével, másképp vélekedik is errol."
Author: Márai Sándor
39. "He knows that had he been a young man himself he would not have stopped at Peshawar: he doesn't know how he would have resisted entering Afghanistan. And not just for help and aid – he would have fought and defended with his arms. And, yes, had he been present in the United States of America back in September, he would have done all he could to save the blameless from dying in those attacked cities, partaken in their calamity.How not to ask for help these days – from others, from God – when it seems that one is surrounded by the destruction of the very idea of man?"
Author: Nadeem Aslam

Author: T.F. Hodge
44. "Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer..."
Author: Thomas Paine
45. "Perhaps that is why desire causes men calamity. By identifying with our desires and taking them too seriously, we not only increase our susceptibility to disappointment, we actually create a climate inhospitable to the free and easy fulfillment of those desires."
Author: Tom Robbins
46. "This is how we came by our factions: Candor, Erudite, Amity, Abnegation and Dauntless." Max smiles. "In them we find administrators and teachers and counselors and leaders and protectors. In them we find our sense of belonging, our sense of community, our very lives."
