1. "Gli dobbiamo [a Marx] quest'idea che fa la disperazione del nostro tempo – ma qui la disperazione vale più di qualsiasi speranza – che quando il lavoro è avvilimento, non è vita, sebbene occupi tutto il tempo della vita. Chi, nonostante le pretese di questa società, può dormirvi in pace, sapendo ormai che essa trae i suoi mediocri piaceri dal lavoro di milioni d'anime morte? Esigendo per il lavoratore la vera ricchezza, che non è quella del denaro, ma quella degli svaghi o della creazione, egli ha rivendicato, nonostante le apparenze, la qualità dell'uomo. Facendo questo, lo possiamo affermare con forza, non ha voluto la degradazione supplementare che è stata, in suo nome, imposta all'uomo. Una frase, per una volta chiara e tagliente, rifiuta per sempre ai suoi discepoli trionfanti la grandezza e l'umanità che gli erano proprie. "Un fine che ha bisogno di mezzi ingiusti, non è un fine giusto"."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "E un bacio è il ponte rosso che costruiamo tra le nostre anime, che danzano sulla vertigine bianca della vita senza paura di cadere."
Author: Alessandro D'Avenia
3. "Viaggiamo per cercare altri luoghi, altre vite,m altre anime."
Author: Anaïs Nin
4. "I was sure the old man knew nothing about the beatitudes, ecstasies, dazzling reverberations of sexual encounters. Cut out the poetry was his message. Clinical sex, deprived of all the warmth of love—the orchestration of all the senses, touch, hearing, sight, palate; all the euphoric accompaniments, back-ground music, moods, atmosphere, variations—forced him to resort to literary aphrodisiacs."
Author: Anaïs Nin
5. "Rule number one of anime," Simon said. He sat propped up against a pile of pillows at the foot of his bed, a bag of potato chips in one hand and the TV remote in the other. He was wearing a black T-shirt that said I BLOGGED YOUR MOM and a pair of jeans that were ripped in one knee. "Never screw with a blind monk."
Author: Cassandra Clare
6. "A moze bedziesz grzala swe cialo liliowePrzy ksiezyca promieniach; zas gdy glód zlowrogiZajrzy - czy z pusta kiesa na gwiazdziste drogiZbierac zloto podazysz w sfery lazurowe?Ranimeras-tu donc tes épaules marbréesAux nocturnes rayons qui percent les volets?Sentant ta bourse à sec autant que ton palaisRécolteras-tu l'or des voûtes azurées?"
Author: Charles Baudelaire
7. "I'm totally addicted to Japanese anime and spend way, way, way too much time watching it."
Author: Connor Jessup
8. "It was the talk that mattered supremely: the impassioned exchange of talk. Love was only a minor accompaniment."
Author: D.H. Lawrence
9. "I'd forgotten I'd done the anime called Spirited Away, the English version of a Japanese film."
Author: David Ogden Stiers
10. "Intended to repel Evil, which are the constant Accompaniment to their Conversations with myself."
Author: Diana Gabaldon
11. "A poem compresses much in a small space and adds music, thus heightening its meaning. The city is like poetry: it compresses all life, all races and breeds, into a small island and adds music and the accompaniment of internal engines. The island of Manhattan is without any doubt the greatest human concentrate on earth, the poem whose magic is comprehensible to millions of permanent residents but whose full meaning will always remain elusive."
Author: E.B. White
12. "The city is like poetry; it compresses all life, all races and breeds, into a small island and adds music and the accompaniment of internal engines."
Author: E.B. White
13. "A major element in Lincoln's greatness was the way in which he could hold a strong moral position without the usual accompaniment of self-righteousness."
Author: Elton Trueblood
14. "The least step forward in the domain of free thought and individual life has been achieved in all ages to the accompaniment of physical and intellectual tortures: and not only the mere step forward, no! but every form of movement and change has rendered necessary innumerable martyrs, throughout the entire course of thousands of years which sought their paths and laid down their foundation-stones, years, however, which we do not think of when we speak about "world-history," that ridiculously small division of mankind's existence. And even in this so-called world-history, which in the main is merely a great deal of noise about the latest novelties, there is no more important theme than the old, old tragedy of the martyrs who tried to move the mire."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
15. "Era andata via, esasperata. Ora lo detestava. Quella mancanza di puntualità al convegno le pareva un oltraggio, e cercava anche altre ragioni per staccarsi da lui; era incapace di eroismo, debole, banale, più molle di una donna, e anche avaro, e pusillanime.Poi, calmandosi, finì per scoprire che lo aveva calunniato, certo. Ma la denigrazione delle persone amate contribuisce pur sempre a staccarci un poco da loro. Non bisogna toccare gli idoli: la doratura resta sulle dita."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
16. "Personally, I was never more passionate about manga than when preparing for my college entrance exams. It's a period of life when young people appear to have a great deal of freedom, but are in many ways actually opressed. Just when they find themselves powerfully attracted to members of opposite sex, they have to really crack the books. To escape from this depressing situation, they often find themselves wishing they could live in a world of their own - a world they can say is truly theirs, a world unknown even to their parents. To young people, anime is something they incorporate into this private world.I often refer to this feeling as one yearning for a lost world. It's a sense that although you may currently be living in a world of constraints, if you were free from those constraints, you would be able to do all sorts of things. And it's that feeling, I believe, that makes mid-teens so passionate about anime."
Author: Hayao Miyazaki
17. "Visit the Navy-Yard, and behold a marine, such a man as an American government can make, or such as it can make a man with its black arts, -a mere shadow and reminiscence of humanity, a man laid out alive and standing, and already, as one may say, buried under arms with funeral accompaniments, though it may be, -"Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note,As his corse to the rampart were hurried;Not a soldier discharged his farewell shot,O'er the grave where our hero we buried."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
18. "France is a pretty stable democracy, but incidents occur. And I was pleased to have police accompaniment."
Author: James Douglas
19. "All that is left in the world is an enormous machine, made of white steel. It has innumerable flexible arms, made of steel. Long, thin arms. At the end of each arm is an eye, the eyelashes stiff with mascara. When I look more closely I see that only some of the arms have these eyes–others have lights. The arms that carry the eyes and the arms that carry the lights are all extraordinarily flexible and very beautiful. But they grey sky, which is the background, terrifies me. . . . And the arms wave to an accompaniment of music and of song. Like this: 'Hotcha–hotcha–hotcha. . . .' And I know the music; I can sing the song. . . ."
Author: Jean Rhys
20. "Du reste je déteste tout ce qui ne fait que m'instruire, sans augmenter mon activité ou l'animer directement."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
21. "Ehi, Clark" disse. "Raccontami qualcosa di bello." Guardai fuori dalla finestra l'azzurro terso del cielo svizzero e gli raccontai la storia di due persone. Due persone che non avrebbero dovuto incontrarsi e che non si erano piaciute molto quando si erano conosciute, ma che presto scoprirono di essere le sole due anime al mondo in grado di capirsi."
Author: Jojo Moyes
22. "Covering up, so far as I can see, is often the accompaniment to far more truly shameful behaviour than stripping off."
Author: Julie Burchill
23. "L'amour est quelque chose de trop abstrait et d'indiscernable. Il est dépendant de nous perçu et vécu par nous. Si nous n'existions pas, il n'existerait pas. Et nous sommes tellement changeants... Alors l'amour ne peut que l'être aussi. L'amour s'enflamme, trépasse, se brise, nous brise, se ranime...: nous ranime. L'amour n'est peut-être pas éternel mais nous, il nous rend éternels... Par-delà notre mort, l'amour que nous avons éveillé continue d'accomplir son chemin."
Author: Julie Maroh
24. "Jesus doesn't come asking if He can hang out with us. He commands us to follow Him. He has total authority and will settle for nothing less; He won't settle for being an accessory, an add- on, or a peaceful accompaniment to a nice life. No, He will rule and He will meddle."
Author: Justin Buzzard
25. "E' nel sogno che le anime respirano, che s'intrufola la grandezza dell'uomo."
Author: Katherine Pancol
26. "Radical Edwards's profile? He's a seven-foot tall ex-basketball pro hindu guru drag-queen alien.-Jet Black, from the Cowboy Bebop anime script"
Author: Keiko Nobumoto
27. "Do you like manga?" she asked after a minute. "Anime?""Anime's cool. I'm not really into it, but 1 like Japanese movies,animated or not.""Well, I'm into it. I watch the shows, read the books, chat on the boards, and all that. But this girl I know, she'scompletely into it. She spends most of her allowance on the books and DVDs. She can recite dialogue fromthem." She caught my gaze. "So would you say she belongs here?""No. Most kids are that way about something, right? With me, it'smovies. Like knowing who directed a sci-fi movie made before I was born."
Author: Kelley Armstrong
28. "Jazz is a very accurate, curiously accurate accompaniment to 20th century America."
Author: Ken Burns
29. "I take time to watch anime. I don't know whether I'm allowed to, but I do it anyway."
Author: Larry Wall
30. "I guess anime helped me understand the Japanese culture a little better and makes me want to honor certain language nuances that don't always translate to English."
Author: Laura Bailey
31. "The Violins waltzed. The Cellos and Basses provided accompaniment. The Violas mourned their fate, while the Concertmaster showed off. The Flutes did bird imitations…repeatedly, and the reed instruments had the good taste to admire my jacket. The Trumpets held a parade in honor of our great nation, while the French Horns waxed nostalgic about something or other. The Trombones had too much to drink. The Percussion beat the band, and the Tuba stayed home playing cards with his landlady, the Harp, taking sips of warm milk a blue little cup."But the Composer is still dead."
Author: Lemony Snicket
32. "Le anime hanno un loro particolar modo d'intendersi, d'entrare in intimità, fino a darsi del tu, mentre le nostre persone sono tuttavia impacciate nel commercio delle parole comuni, nella schiavitù delle esigenze sociali. Han bisogni lor proprii e le loro proprie aspirazioni le anime, di cui il corpo non si dà per inteso, quando veda l'impossibilità di soddisfarli e di tradurle in atto. E ogni qualvolta due che comunichino fra loro così, con le anime soltanto, si trovano soli in qualche luogo, provano un turbamento angoscioso e quasi una repulsione violenta d'ogni minimo contatto materiale, una sofferenza che li allontana, e che cessa subito, non appena un terzo intervenga. Allora, passata l'angoscia, le due anime sollevate si ricercano e tornano a sorridersi da lontano."
Author: Luigi Pirandello
33. "Anime is intended to have ambiguous features. That's part of the art form."
Author: M. Night Shyamalan
34. "Un motto, in sintesi, domina e illumina i nostri studi: <>. Non diciamo che il bravo storico è estraneo alle passioni; ha per lo meno quella. Motto, non nascondiamocelo, carico di difficoltà, ma anche di speranze. Soprattutto, motto carico di amicizia. Persino nell'azione, noi giudichiamo troppo. E' comodo gridare <> Non comprendiamo mai abbastanza. Chi è diverso da noi - straniero, avversario politico - passa, quasi necessariamente, per un cattivo. Anche per condurre le lotte che non si possono evitare, un po' più di intelligenza delle anime sarebbe necessaria; a maggior ragione, per evitarle, quando si è ancora in tempo. La storia, purché rinunci alle sue false arie da arcangelo, deve aiutarci a guarire a questo difetto. Essa è una vasta esperienza delle varietà umane, un luogo di incontro fra gli uomini. La vita, come la scienza, ha tutto da guadagnare dal fatto che questo incontro sia fraterno."
Author: Marc Bloch
35. "Ma quando di un lontano passato non rimane più nulla, dopo la morte delle creature, dopo la distruzione delle cose, soli e più fragili ma più vivaci, più immateriali, più persistenti, più fedeli, l'odore e il sapore permangono ancora a lungo, come anime, a ricordare, ad attendere, a sperare, sulla rovina di tutto, a sorreggere senza tremare - loro, goccioline quasi impalpabili - l'immenso edificio del ricordo."
Author: Marcel Proust
36. "Sono stata ammaliata dal fascino sfacciato e intrigante della Belle Epoque.Sfacciato perché, per la prima volta, in quell'epoca le distinzioni di classe perdevano d'importanza davanti all'irrompere dei tempi moderni. In effetti lo stile di vita borghese si evolve raggiungendo e talvolta superando in splendore, classe e mondanità l'aristocrazia medesima.Intrigante in quanto l'umanità accoglie unanime un rinnovamento sociale, culturale, tecnico, artistico senza precedenti."
Author: Mariangela Camocardi
37. "People will be surprised at the eagerness with which we went aboutpretending to rouse from its slumber a sexuality which every­thing-our discourses, our customs, our institutions, our regulations, our knowledges-was busy producing in the light of day and broadcasting to noisy accompaniment."
Author: Michel Foucault
38. "I want you to picture me as a cute little anime character that popped out from behind a mushroom or something and landed in Hollywood."
Author: Mindy Kaling
39. "—Sabía que había algo diferente en ti desde el principio. Incluso si yo no hubiera salido para llegar a ti ese primer día, tú lo habrías logrado. Admiro eso, ¿sabes? Que no dejas que nada te desanime. Que sigues luchando. Como yo."
Author: Nyrae Dawn
40. "Is the beauty of the Whole really enhanced by our agony? And is the Whole really beautiful? And what is beauty? Throughout all his existence man has been striving to hear the music of the spheres, and has seemed to himself once and again to catch some phrase of it, or even a hint of the whole form of it. Yet he can never be sure that he has truly heard it, nor even that there is any such perfect music at all to be heard. Inevitably so, for if it exists, it is not for him in his littleness. But one thing is certain. Man himself, at the very least, is music, a brave theme that makes music also of its vast accompaniment, its matrix of storms and stars. Man himself in his degree is eternally a beauty in the eternal form of things. It is very good to have been man. And so we may go forward together with laughter in our hearts, and peace, thankful for the past, and for our own courage. For we shall make after all a fair conclusion to this brief music that is man."
Author: Olaf Stapledon
41. "Geek cred points for trying to stump me, but sorry, you'll have to do better than that. Would you like to try anime for a hundred?" When she looked blank, he sighed. "What took it down, anime, or the Jeopardy reference?"
Author: Rachel Caine
42. "Mira, I'm about to be naked," Blue said as he whipped off his belt and tossed it on the floor. "So watch out. Well, in my underwear.""I've seen you in your bathing suit," Mira said. "It's the same thing.""It is not the same thing," Blue said. "When it's accompanied by seventies porn music, it's an X-rated strip show." Blue yanked off his shirt. "Freddie, you're kind of slow on the uptake. Eine kleine porn music, please."Freddie scrunched his forehead in distaste. "I don't want to plug my guitar in just so I can play some bow-chicka-wow-wow accompaniment to your strip show.Mira laughed. "Bow-chicka-what was that, Freddie?"
Author: Sarah Cross
43. "Weir heard something different in the sounds. Once, during a period of calm, he sat on the firestep waiting for Stephen to return from an inspection and listened to the music of the tins. The empty ones were sonorous, the fuller ones provided an ascending scale. Those filled to the brim produced only a fat percussive beat unless they overbalanced, when the cascade would give a loud variation. Within earshot there were scores of tins in different states of fullness and with varying resonance. Then he heard the wire moving in the wind. It set up a moaning background noise that would occasionally gust into prominence, then lapse again to mere accompaniment. He had to work hard to discern, or perhaps imagine, a melody in this tin music, but it was better in his ears than the awful sound of shellfire."
Author: Sebastian Faulks
44. "I'm Vane Weston: The Last WesterlyGreat- it sounds like something out of an anime cartoon."
Author: Shannon Messenger
45. "Think, bud. Fierce immortal who likes to gamble in Sin's casino, wear tacky shirts, and watch anime." – Zarek"Old Bear?" – Sundown"Give that boy a biscuit. He finally got it." – Zarek"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
46. "Anime has sent me all over the world, introducing me to people who have touched my life in indescribably profound ways."
Author: Steven Blum
47. "Anime has been good to me. I made and continue to make very little money at it, but the undying, feverish loyalty of the fans of the genre has been such a life-changing influence for me that I wanted to do everything I possibly could to help give something back to them."
Author: Steven Blum
48. "A minute passes as we enter Little Tokyo. It's kind of similar to what you see in the movies, with a lot of signs in different languages with "engrish" translations underneath and those big red gates with the curved wood on top, whatever they're called. The passing people on the street are, understandably, largely of Asian descent.... I get a couple looks, but I suspect it's 'cause my hair is a variety of shades not seen outside of an anime."
Author: Vaughn R. Demont
49. "Venti e nubi, turbini e folate, inutili stelle! Che fare? Disperato s'abbandona, poiché chi è stanco decide di morire e lascia fare, si lascia andare, cede, ed eccolo rotolato per sempre nelle mortali profondità dell'abisso vorace. Oh, implacabile cammino delle società umane! Perdita di uomini e d'anime per strada! Oceano in cui cade tutto ciò che la legge lascia cadere! Sinistra scomparsa del soccorso, morte morale!"
Author: Victor Hugo
50. "The first time he talked in that way he said something that I've never forgotten, because it horrified me; he said that the world isn't a creation, for out of nothing nothing comes, but a manifestation of the eternal nature; well, that was all right, but then he added that evil is as direct a manifestation of the divine as good. They were strange words to hear in that sordid, noisy café, to the accompaniment of dance tunes on the mechanical piano."
Author: W. Somerset Maugham
