Author: Anyaele Sam Chiyson
4. "...the supply of uranium in the planet is very limited, and it is feared that it may be used up before the human race is exterminated, but if the practically unlimited supply of hydrogen in the sea could be utilized there would be considerable reason to hope that homo sapiens might put an end to himself, to the great advantage of the other less ferocious animals."
Author: Bertrand Russell
5. "I remember a story of a girl in Paradise who ate an apple once. Some wise Sapient gave it to her. Because of it she saw things differently. What had seemed gold coins were dead leaves. Rich clothes were rags of cobweb. And she saw there was a wall around the world, with a locked gate."
Author: Catherine Fisher
6. "Technically, our name, to those who speak science, is Homo sapiens— wise person. But we have been described in many other ways. Homo narrans, juridicus, ludens, diaspora: we are storytelling, legal, game-playing, scattered people, too. True but incomplete. That old phrase has the secret. We are all, have always been, will always be, Homo vorago aperientis: person before whom opens a vast & awesome hole."
Author: China Miéville
7. "We have good news and bad news. The good news is that the dismal vision of human sexuality reflected in the standard narrative is mistaken. Men have not evolved to be deceitful cads, nor have millions of years shaped women into lying, two-timing gold-diggers. But the bad news is that the amoral agencies of evolution have created in us a species with a secret it just can't keep. Homo sapiens evolved to be shamelessly, undeniably, inescapably sexual. Lusty libertines."
Author: Christopher Ryan
8. "Vešina lidí se domnívá, že neandertálci byli našimi predky, ve skutecnosti to však byl paralelní druh (lépe receno poddruh), který s Homo sapiens soutežil o prežití. Výraz "soutežil" je k nám pritom pomerne laskavý, protože neandertálci nás predcili takrka ve všem. Byli silnejší, vytrvalejší a pravdepodobne také chytrejší."
Author: Christopher McDougall
9. "Non deterret sapientem mors."
Author: Cicero
10. "Lucius Cassius ille quem populus Romanus verissimum et sapientissimum iudicem putabat identidem in causis quaerere solebat 'cui bono' fuisset.The famous Lucius Cassius, whom the Roman people used to regard as a very honest and wise judge, was in the habit of asking, time and again, 'To whose benefit?"
Author: Cicero
11. "He belonged to a walled city of the fifteenth century, a city of narrow, cobbled streets, and thin spires, where the inhabitants wore pointed shoes and worsted hose. His face was arresting, sensitive, medieval in some strange inexplicable way, and I was reminded of a portrait seen in a gallery I had forgotten where, of a certain Gentleman Unknown. Could one but rob him of his English tweeds, and put him in black, with lace at his throat and wrists, he would stare down at us in our new world from a long distant past—a past where men walked cloaked at night, and stood in the shadow of old doorways, a past of narrow stairways and dim dungeons, a past of whispers in the dark, of shimmering rapier blades, of silent, exquisite courtesy."
Author: Daphne Du Maurier
12. "Over the years, HIV/AIDS activists and their allies have been pioneers in creating new frontiers in the medical establishment. Through their efforts, the FDA drug approval procedures were reformed so promising new therapies could reach desperate patients quicker."
Author: David Mixner

Author: Delphine De Vigan
14. "De combinatie geel en zwart, godbetert, smaaklozer kan je 't niet bedenken. [...] Bidden wij dus voor alle ouders van een zoontje dat supporteert voor NAC Breda of SK Lierse en zulks kenbaar wil maken via het behangpapier op zijn kamer, zijn kaften, zijn jassen en zijn sjaals. Kleurterreur die z'n sporen moet nalaten op het brein en waar de schoolresultaten van het ventje uiteindelijk bijzonder onder gaan lijden."
Author: Dimitri Verhulst
15. "The complex human eye harvests light. It perceives seven to ten million colors through a synaptic flash: one-tenth of a second from retina to brain. Homo sapiens gangs up to 70 percent of its sense receptors solely for vision, to anticipate danger and recognize reward, but also—more so—for beauty."
Author: Ellen Meloy
16. "Anger can be borne - it can even be satisfying - if it can gather into words and explode in a storm, or a rapier-sharp attack. But without these means of ventilation, it only turns back inward, building and swirling like a head of stream - building to an impotent, murderous rage."
Author: Eva Hoffman
17. "Secluded in her living room, the midday sun dimmed by long, burgundy drapes—the soft velvet cloth a steal on EBay—Circe watches the soapies on her plasma screen TV. Her elegant fingers deliver fine chocolates to her perfect lips. Her divine green eyes are dull, her expression glazed."
Author: Georgina Anne Taylor

Author: Gustav Meyrink
21. "J'ai regardé à ma montre, et j'ai calculé combien de temps il me restait à vivre ; j'ai vu que j'avais encore une heure à peine. Il me reste assez de papier sur ma table pour retracer à la hête tous les souvenirs de ma vie et toutes les circonstances qui ont influé sur cet enchaînement stupide et logique de jours et de nuits , de larmes et de rires, qu'on a coutume d'appeler l'existence d'un homme."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
22. "I mean, the ones on trial are not like me in any way: they're a different kind of human being. They live in a different world, they think different thoughts, and their actions are nothing like mine. Between the world they live in and the world I live in there's this thick, high wall. At least, that's how I saw it at first. ...I became a lot less sure of myself. In other words, I started seeing it like this: that there really was no such thing as a wall separating their world from mine. Or if there was such a wall, it was probably a flimsy one made of papier-mache. The second I leaned on it, I'd probably fall right through and end up on the other side. Or maybe it's that the other side has already managed to sneak its way inside of us, and we just haven't noticed."
Author: Haruki Murakami
23. "Vivir simplemente para gozar es una legítima ambición animal. Pero para el ser humano, para el Hommo Sapiens, es contentarse con muy poco. Para distinguirnos de los demás animales, para justificar nuestro paso por la tierra, hay que ambicionar metas superiores al solo goce de la vida."
Author: Héctor Abad Faciolince
24. "Kai žmogus ieško, tada lengvai atsitinka, kad jo akys mato tik ta dalyka, kurio ieško, ir jis nieko kito neistengia pastebeti ar suvokti, nes visa laika galvoja tik apie ieškoma daikta - jis turi tiksla, apsestas savo tikslo. Ieškoti- tai tureti tiksla. Bet rasti - vadinasi, buti laisvam, atviram pojuciams, netureti jokio tikslo."
Author: Hermann Hesse
25. "Lieber Paul, wenn ich mich heute nach meinen Wünschen frage, meinen wirklichen Wünschen, dann zögre ich mir Antwort zu geben, ja vielleicht bin ich sogar zur Einsicht gekommen, dass es uns nicht zusteht zu wünschen, dass wir nur ein gewisses Pensum an Arbeit zu erledigen haben, dass, was wir immer tun, ohne Wirkung ist, dass man dennoch zwischen acht Uhr früh und sechs Uhr abends so tun muss, als sei es wichtig, auf ein Blatt Papier einen Beistrich oder einen Doppelpunkt zu setzen. "
Author: Ingeborg Bachmann
26. "Mary frowned. A vampire doctor. Talk about exploring your alternative therapies."
Author: J.R. Ward
27. "Want to play hangman? asks Theophile, and I ache to tell him that I have enough on my plate playing quadriplegic. But my communication system disqualifies repartee: the keenest rapier grows dull and falls flat when it takes several minutes to thrust it home. By the time you strike, even you no longer understand what had seemed so witty before you started to dictate it, letter by letter. So the rule is to avoid impulsive sallies. It deprives conversation of its sparkle, all those gems you bat back and forth like a ball-and I count this forced lack of humor one of the great drawbacks of my condition."
Author: Jean Dominique Bauby
28. "Space, time, and objects might just be aspects of a sensory desktop specific to Homo sapiens. They might not be deep insights into objective truths, just convenient conventions that have evolved to allow us to survive in our niche."
Author: John Brockman
29. "Bridgerton," he grunted. Damn damn damn. Colin Bridgerton was the last person he wanted to see right now. Even the ghost of Napoleon, come down to slice a rapier through his gullet, would have been preferable."
Author: Julia Quinn
30. "...her other paramour was a student at the UASD -- one of those City College types who's been in school eleven years and is always five credits shy of a degree. Students today don't mean na; but in Latin America whipped into a frenzy by the fall of Arbenz, by the stoning of Nixon, by the Guerillas of the Sierra Madre, by the endless cynical maneuverings of the Yankee Pig Dogs -- in a Latin America already a year and a half into the Decade of Guerilla -- a student was something else altogether, an agent for change, a quantum string in the staid Newtonian universe. Such a student was Arquimedes. He also listened to the shortwave, but not for Dodgers scores; what he risked his life for was the news leaking out of Havana, news of the future. Arquemides was, therefore, a student, the son of a Zapatero and a midwife, a tirapiedra and a quemagoma for life. Being a student wasn't a joke, not with Trujillo and Johnny Abbes scooping up everybody following the foiled Cuban Invasion of 1959."
Author: Junot Díaz
31. "She stared at the bullwhip coiled Indiana Jones-style at his narrow waist, then at the black-handled dagger sheathed on his right hip. An obsidian rapier--Fae-forged and unbreakable--almost merged with one of the taped seams that ran down the sides of his pants. He even wore a dagger gunslinger-style at his hip. Dear Goddess, the man was a walking arsenal, but he was sexy as hell."
Author: Kryssie Fortune
32. "You could not fence with an antagonist who met rapier thrust with blow of battle axe."
Author: L.M. Montgomery
33. "The basic common denominator of all life is the urge to survive, and the survival of life on Planet Earth is achieved only as a shared initiative with and through all life-forms. Life is a joint effort; no 'man' separate from 'nature.' Homo sapiens as individuals and as species are as much a part of life's overall thrust for survival as any other species. As living organisms, we are part if the greater whole, and as such, we are embodied with exactly the same fundamental purpose: to survive. And to do so--as individuals, families, groups, and as a species--we have to live in dynamic collaboration with the plant and animal kingdoms in a healthy, life-sustaining environment."
Author: Lawrence Anthony
34. "Homo sapiens doesn't seem able to cut himself off at the supply end. He's one of the few species that doesn't limit reproduction in the face of dwindling resources. In other words—and up to a point, of course—the less we eat, the more we fuck."
Author: Margaret Atwood
35. "In der Fußgängerzone kam Wind auf wie immer Wind aufkommt bei der Suche nach jenem richtigen Ort der sich stets weit entfernt zeigt, die Abfallpapiere am Boden verrutschten, mein Mantel flatterte, und, als wäre dies schon ein Grund mich selbst zu den Dingen zu zählen als wäre dies schon ein Grund blieb ich ungefragt stehen"
Author: Marion Poschmann
36. "One death apiece is plenty."
Author: Marty Rubin
37. "Praejusia savaite ponia Modžeri paskolino man knyga. Ji vadinasi "Oksfordo šiuolaikines poezijos antologija, 1892-1935". Jie leido tokiam žmogui, pavarde Jytsas, atrinkti eilerašcius. Geriau jau butu to nedare. Kas jis toks - ir ka jis išmano apie eiles? Perverciau visa knyga, ieškodamasVilfredo Ouveno arba Zygfrido Sasuno eilerašciu. Neradau - ne vieno. Ir žinote kodel? Nes tas ponas Jytsas sako - taigi, jis sako: "Aš samoningai nuspredžiau NEITRAUKTI ne vieno eilerašcio iš Pirmojo pasaulinio karo. Man jie nepatinka. Pasyvi kancia - netinkama tema poezijai." PASYVI KANCIA? PASYVI KANCIA! Manes vos neištiko priepuolis. Kas tam žmogui yra? Leitenantas Ouvenas paraše tokia eilute: "Ir krintancius palydi ne varpai, / O piktas ir rustus pabuklu griausmas." Noreciau žinoti, kas cia yra pasyvaus? Butent taip jie miršta. Maciau tai savo akimis, ir sakau: velniop ta pona Jytsa."
Author: Mary Ann Shaffer
38. "And the more you look at the history of Homo sapiens, it's all about movement, right from the very first time they decided to leave Africa. It is this restlessness which seems a very significant factor in the way the planet was settled by humans. It does seem that we are not settled. We think we are, but we are still looking for somewhere else where something is better – where it's warmer, it's more pleasant. Maybe there is an element, a spiritual element, of hope in this – that you are going to find somewhere that is wonderful. It's the search for paradise, the search for the perfect land – maybe that's at the bottom of it all, all the time."
Author: Neil MacGregor
39. "Feen", erklärte er bereitwillig. "Das versteckte Volk. Die Wesen, die sich gemeinhin am Rande Ihres Gesichtsfelds verbergen und Schabernack mit dieser Welt treiben. Ihre bloße Anwesenheit reicht meistens aus, unsere liebgewonnene Ordnung auf den Kopf zu stellen, denn sehen Sie, unsere Welt ist so voller Beschränkungen! Sie können von einer Fee genauso wenig erwarten, dass sie sich in dieser Welt ausdrückt, wie Sie Monet bitten könnten, mit Kohle und Schmierpapier einen Lilienteich zu malen. Sie prägen sich unserer Wirklichkeit auf wie die Füße eines Wasserläufers, und Kreise wachsen auf ihrem Weg über den Teich, aber Sie erhaschen nie einen Blick auf das Wesen, das sie hinterlässt. Das heißt, bis heute, lieber Freund."
Author: Oliver Plaschka
40. "An evolutionary perspective of our place in the history of the earth reminds us that Homo sapiens sapiens has occupied the planet for the tiniest fraction of that planet's four and a half thousand million years of existence. In many ways we are a biological accident, the product of countless propitious circumstances. As we peer back through the fossil record, through layer upon layer of long-extinct species, many of which thrived far longer than the human species is ever likely to do, we are reminded of our mortality as a species. There is no law that declares the human animal to be different, as seen in this broad biological perspective, from any other animal. There is no law that declares the human species to be immortal."
Author: Richard E. Leakey
41. "Kai Europos šiaureje stoves vien dangoraižiai, snobai važiuos i Pietus, lupines su nagu dildemis istorinius akmenis ir ciulps juos kaip trenktas pajurio Homeras. Ir mals šuda apie savo civilizacijos šaknis."
Author: Sigitas Parulskis
42. "Paklause, iš kur aš. Buvau geros nuotaikos, pasakiau, kad esu ciuvašas.— O kur tai?— Ceboksarai, jei teko girdet. Turime daug vertingu iškasenu, aukso, deimantu, anglies, mišku, tautini epa apie kiški ir vilka; kiškis buvo labai gudrus, o vilkas kvailas. Gal nebutinai kvailas, bet jam nuolat nesiseke. Tomo ir Džerio istorija.— Aaaa, — pasake nutesdamas danas.— Taip, butent, — patvirtinau užtikrintai.— Vadinasi, jus — rusai."
Author: Sigitas Parulskis
43. "Für viele Waren gibt es jetzt Plastikverpackungen; das Menschenfleisch aber wird immer noch in Zeitungspapier verpackt verkauft."
Author: Stanisław Jerzy Lec
44. "At bottom, you see, we are not Homo sapiens as all. Our core is madness. The prime directive is murder. What Darwin was too polite to say, my friends, is that we came to rule the earth not because we were the smartest, or even the meanest, but because we have always been the craziest, most murderous motherfuckers in the jungle. And that is what the Pulse exposed five days ago."
Author: Stephen King
45. "I brandished my parasol at him like a rapier. 'You, sir, are an abominable scalawag of a man, and I'll be damned if I let you threaten me."
Author: Susan Dennard
46. "Vers 2 heures je me suis bouché les oreilles avec du papier mâché. J'ai arraché une page de Lord Jim, je l'ai ruminée lentement (mauvais goût de l'encre) et me suis collé au fond de l'oreille la littérature de Conrad en pensant que j'allais entendre la mer."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
47. "Au lieu d'être immobile comme il convient à un pied embaumé depuis quatre mille ans, il s'agitait, se contractait et sautillait sur les papiers comme une grenouille effarée."
Author: Théophile Gautier
48. "The arts which we now call garden design and landscape design have three separate origins: sacred space, horticultural space and domestic space. Like Homo sapiens, the arts of garden and landscape design probably spread to Europe from West Asia."
Author: Tom Turner
49. "It is fear that makes you believe that you are living and that you will be dead.What we do not want is the fear to come to an end. That is why we have invented all these new minds, new sciences,new talks, therapies, choiceless awareness and various other gimmicks."
Author: U.G. Krishnamurti
50. "Priešas turi buti atpažistamas ir baisus, jis turi buti tavo namuose arba prie duru slenkscio. Štai kodel žydai. Mums juos atsiunte Dievo apvaizda, tad, del Dievo, pasinaudokime jais ir melskimes, kad visada butu žydu, kuriu galetume bijoti ir nekesti. Priešo reikia, kad tauta turetu vilti. Sakoma, patriotizmas - paskutine niekšu prieglauda: neturintis morales principu dažniausiai apsisiaucia veliava, o mišrunai visada rekia apie gryna tautos krauja. Tautine tapatybe - paskutine varguoliu atspirtis. O tapatybe igyja prasme tik per neapykanta kitokiam. Reikia puoseleti neapykanta kaip pilietine aistra. Priešas yra tautu draugas. Visada reikia tureti, ko nekesti, kad kaltintume del savo vargu."
Author: Umberto Eco

The respectable family that supports worthless relatives or covers up their crimes in order to "protect the family name"(as if the moral stature of one man could be damaged by the actions of another)-the bum who boasts that his great-grandfather was an empire-builder, or the small-town spinster who boasts that her maternal great-uncle was a state senator and her third cousin gave a concert at carnegie hall (as if the achievement of one man could rub off on the mediocrity of another)-the parents who search geneological trees in order to evaluate their prospective son-in-law.-the celebrity who starts his autobiography with a detailed account of his family history -All these are samples of racism."
