1. "The time you won your town the raceWe chaired you through the market-place;Man and boy stood cheering by,And home we brought you shoulder-high.Today, the road all runners come,Shoulder-high we bring you home,And set you at your threshold down,Townsman of a stiller town.Smart lad, to slip betimes awayFrom fields where glory does not stay,And early though the laurel growsIt withers quicker than the rose.Eyes the shady night has shutCannot see the record cut,And silence sounds no worse than cheersAfter earth has stopped the ears.Now you will not swell the routOf lads that wore their honours out,Runners whom renown outranAnd the name died before the man.So set, before its echoes fade,The fleet foot on the sill of shade,And hold to the low lintel upThe still-defended challenge-cup.And round that early-laurelled headWill flock to gaze the strengthless dead,And find unwithered on its curlsThe garland briefer than a girl's."
Author: A.E. Housman
2. "DomesticWhere's the wisdom in erasing a loved one's mess,so akin to his signature? Your honor, I only meantto strew the immaculate in his wake. To wipe the pathahead and behind reasonably clean. Futile, yes,but weren't such gestures essential to love's disciplineonce upon a time? Daily, I harvested dropped fruit peelsand socks. I chased him through life with dustpanand broom, smoothed his body dents from the bed,soothed the mud tramped floors. Did I sin in this?Better to leave the habitat sweetly reeking of himthan to spend years scrubbing up evidence of his existence.Archaelogists centuries hence may marvel at such relics:his mustard stained napkins, toothpicks chewedto splinters. Never let it be said that in my zeal to clean I robbed the future's museums. Whoam I to call what flies to either side of the trailhe blazes--half read magazines, cups of scummedover coffee and mashed out cigarettes--dirt?"
Author: Amy Gerstler

7. "I pity the woman who will love youwhen I am done. She will show upto your first date with a dustpanand broom, ready to pick up all the piecesI left you in. She will hear my name so oftenit will begin to dig holes in her. Thatis where doubt will grow. She will lookat your neck, your thin hips, your mouth, wondering at the way I touched you.She will make you all the promises I did and some I never could. She will hear only the terrible stories. How I drank. How I lied. She will wonder (as I have) how someoneas wonderful as you could love a monster like the woman who came before her. Still, she will compete with my ghost. She will understand why you do not look in the back of closets. Why you are afraid of what's under the bed. She will knowevery corner of you is haunted by me."
Author: Clementine Von Radics
8. "See, the institutions and specialist, experts, you see. Yes, yes,experts, indeed. See, they would have us believe that there is an orderto art. An explanation. Humans are odd creatures in that way. Alwayssearching for a formula. Yes, a formula to create an expected norm forunexplainable greatness. A cook book you might say. Yes, a recipebook for life, love, and art. However, my dear, let me tell you. Yes,there is no such thing. Every individual is unique in their own design,as intended by God himself. We classify, yes, always must we classify,for if not, then we would be lost, yes lost now wouldn't we?Classification, order, expectations, but alas, we forget. For what is art,if not the out word expression of an artist. It is the soul of the artisanand if his expectations are met, than who are we to judge whether hiswork be art or not?"
Author: Cristina Marrero

Author: Edna St. Vincent Millay

18. "- (...) que tipo de descoberta é essa, de que uma pessoa está amando? Como se, dizendo isso, alguma coisa desse um estalo: clique! - e já se está amando. Parece que, ao pronunciar essa palavra, algo fora do comum deveria acontecer, algum sinal, como todos os canhões atirando ao mesmo tempo, por exemplo. Penso - continuou - que quem pronuncia as palavras "eu te amo" ou está se enganando, ou está enganando os outros, o que é pior.- mas, assim, como a mulher vai saber que a amam, se não lhe dizem? - perguntou Kátia.- isso eu não sei - respondeu ele -, cada um tem sua maneira de se expressar. E, se um sentimento existe, ele mesmo se expressa."

29. "E o que significa a palavra qualidade? Para mim significa textura. Este livro tem poros. Tem feições. Este livro poderia passar pelo microscópio. Você encontraria vida sob a lâmina, emanando em profusão infinita. Quanto mais poros, quanto mais detalhes de vida fielmente gravados por centímetro quadrado você conseguir captar numa folha de papel, mais "literário" você será. Pelo menos essa é minha definição. Detalhes reveladores. Detalhes frescos. Os bons escritores quase sempre tocam a vida. Os medíocres apenas passam rapidamente a mão sobre ela. Os ruins a estupram e a deixam para as moscas. Entende agora por que os livros são odiados e temidos? Eles mostram os poros no rosto da vida. Os que vivem no conforto querem apenas rostos com cara de lua de cera, sem poros nem pêlos, inexpressivos."
Author: Ray Bradbury
30. "Supongo que en esta vida todo el mundo tiene que hacer algo y si ese algo no te gusta, pues mejor, porque te estás ganando el cielo, o al menos, el derecho de poder aconsejar.Me refiero a que si te jodes y te aguantas un poco puedes decir: «mira, yo también hago muchas cosas que no me gustan», pero si resulta que eres incapaz de hacer cosas que no te gustan, entonces estás perdido y sólo te queda sentarte a esperar que lo poco bueno que te ha pasado en la vida se haya marchado."
Author: Ray Loriga

32. "But then the subject turned to the spiritual life and Meg talked about her many visits to ashrams in India and her admiration for Swami Muktananda and Gurumayi. That got in the way, especially because he told her of his skepticism regarding the guru industry, and suggested she might profitably read Gita Mehta's book Karma Cola. "Why are you so cynical?" she asked him, as if she genuinely wanted to know the answer, and he said that if you grew up in India it was easy to conclude that these people were fakes. "Yes, of course there are lots of charlatans," she said, reasonably, "but can't you discriminate?" He shook his head sadly. "No," he said. "No, I can't." That was the end of their chat."
Author: Salman Rushdie

34. "A Childish PrankMan's and woman's bodies lay without soulsDully gaping, foolishly staring, inertOn the flowers of Eden.God pondered.The problem was so great, it dragged him asleep.Crow laughed.He bit the Worm, God's only son,Into two writhing halves.He stuffed into man the tail halfWith the wounded end hanging out.He stuffed the head half headfirst into womanAnd it crept in deeper and upTo peer out through her eyesCalling it's tail-half to join up quickly, quicklyBecause O it was painful.Man awoke being dragged across the grass.Woman awoke to see him coming.Neither knew what had happened.God went on sleeping.Crow went on laughing."
