Author: Ambrose Bierce
2. "I have no brakes on...analysis is for those who are paralyzed by life."
Author: Anaïs Nin
3. "It is true that I create over and over again the same difficulties for myself in order to struggle over and over again to master them [but] to continually struggle against the same problem and to continually fail to dominate it brings a feeling of frustration and a kind of paralysis. What is necessary to life, to livingness, is to move on, in other words to move from one kind of problem to another."
Author: Anaïs Nin
4. "Lies from the closest to you are often the most numerous and paralyzing."
Author: Anne Mallory
5. "Authors can be divided into meteors, planets and fixed stars. The meteors produce a loud momentary effect; we look up, shout 'see there!' and then they are gone for ever. The planets and comets last for a much longer time....The fixed stars alone are constant and unalterable; their position in the firmament is fixed; they have their own light and are at all times active, because they do not alter their appearance through a change in our standpoint, for they have no parallax. Unlike the others, they do not belong to one system (nation) alone, but to the world. But just because they are situated so high, their light usually requires many years before it becomes visible to the inhabitatns of earth."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
6. "Como saben, me gusta recordar viejos episodios de nuestra Historia. Sobre todo si causan respeto por lo que algunos paisanos nuestros fueron capaces de hacer. O intentar. Situaciones con posible lectura paralela, de aplicación al tiempo en que vivimos. Les aseguro que es un ejercicio casi analgésico; sobre todo esos días funestos, cuando creo que la única solución serían toneladas de napalm seguidas por una repoblación de parejas mixtas compuestas, por ejemplo, de suecos y africanos. Sin embargo, cuando una de esas viejas historias viene a la memoria, concluyo que quizás no sea imprescindible el napalm. Siempre hubo aquí compatriotas capaces de hacer cosas que valen la pena, me digo. Y en alguna parte estarán todavía. Como estuvieron."
Author: Arturo Pérez Reverte
7. "Is the love you have for me, and the feelings I have for you forever parallel, with no chance of intersecting?"
Author: Atsuko Asano
8. "When I was first introduced to CrossFit, I found it to be the hardest workout that I'd ever done. It wiped the floor with me, and I fell in love with it immediately. The results that I have seen in my strength and physicality have been unparalleled to any other things I have ever done in my more than 20 years in the fitness business."
Author: Bob Harper
9. "Kung alam ko lang na pwersado rin akong magtatrabaho nang ganito, nagsikap na lang sana ako sa eskwelahan nung bata ako. parehas lang naman palang nakakapagod. at least pag nakapag-aral ka, may pag-asa ka pang magkaroon ng magandang kinabukasan at makatulong sa iba."
Author: Bob Ong

Author: Bob Taft
11. "At some point you do not need to talk to have a conversation. The conversation exists whether you have it or not. It continues silently in a parallel dimension of the marriage. They both pause to let it run its course toward another stalemate."
Author: Chris Bachelder
12. "[O]ne has to have endured a few decades before wanting, let alone needing, to embark on the project of recovering lost life. And I think it may be possible to review 'the chronicles of wasted time.' William Morris wrote in The Dream of John Ball that men fight for things and then lose the battle, only to win it again in a shape and form that they had not expected, and then be compelled again to defend it under another name. We are all of us very good at self-persuasion and I strive to be alert to its traps, but a version of what Hegel called 'the cunning of history' is a parallel commentary that I fight to keep alive in my mind."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
13. "—En realidad no. Sigo pensando que ella lo haría todo de nuevo si hubiera una posibilidad... una posibilidad de que pudiera salir bien. Aunque 99 veces de cada 100 la historia termina mal, pero merece la pena, aunque sólo sea una vez, que consiga un final feliz.—Escucha, Garrick, mientras que este paralelo que estás dibujando es adorable, sobre todo con ese acento, estoy un poco cansada de las metáforas, y ser comparada con las historias de amor condenadas. Sólo di lo que quieres decir. He estado descifrando un texto antiguo toda la noche. No quiero tener que descifrarte a ti, también.—Estoy diciendo que me equivoqué. —Dio un paso más cerca, y mi cansancio huyó, sustituido por la electricidad bajo mi piel—. Estoy diciendo que me gustas. Estoy diciendo que no me importa una mierda ser tu maestro.Entonces, me besó."
Author: Cora Carmack
14. "For twenty-one years, I have been paralyzed by the fear of what this society will do with me if they ever were to know of the thoughts that I continually push away. For more than two decades, I have made a choice to be straight. After all, it's as easy as making a choice, isn't it? This culture has made sure that I know that. Anyone who is anything other than straight was just someone deceived by the devil. He is unnatural. He is confused. He is mistaken. He is weak. He can control it if he desires to control it. Such a compelling and ongoing argument has been made that I have always trusted it.I believed that if I hid it long enough, and ran from it long enough, and refused to acknowledge it for long enough, I could indeed succeed at living up to their decrees. I believed that I could force myself to never be anything else."
Author: Dan Pearce
15. "Things were changing; I was changing. All swelling limbs and sweating brain, suddenly I had more body than I knew what to do with. Arms and legs became the prey of low desktops and narrow corridors, were ambushed by sharp corners. Mr Baxter ignored my plight. Bodies were inimical to mathematics, or so we were led to believe. Bad hair, acrid breath, lumpy skin, all vanished for an hour every Tuesday and Thursday. Young minds in the buff soared into the sphere of pure reason. Pages turned to parallelograms; cities, circumferences; recipes, ratios. Shorn of our bearings, we groped our way around in this rarefied air."
Author: Daniel Tammet
16. "But if I worried too much about publishers' expectations, I'd probably paralyze myself and not be able to write anything."
Author: David Baldacci
17. "Let us not paralyze our capacity for good by brooding of man's capacity for evil."
Author: David Sarnoff
18. "This, then, is a story of Lincoln's political genius revealed through his extraordinary array of personal qualities that enabled him to form friendships with men who had previously opposed him; to repair injured feelings that, left untended, might have escalated into permanent hostility; to assume responsibility for the failures of subordinates; to share credit with ease; and to learn from mistakes. He possessed an acute understanding of the sources of power inherent in the presidency, an unparalleled ability to keep his governing coalition intact, a tough-minded appreciation of the need to protect his presidential prerogatives, and a masterful sense of timing."
Author: Doris Kearns Goodwin
19. "You are paralyzed by the fact that cruelty is often amusing."
Author: Douglas Coupland
20. "Maailma on täynnä ihmisiä, jotka takertuvat varallisuuteen, arvostukseen tai valtaan. Mitä enemmän menestyksen merkkejä ihmiset ansaitsevat, sitä enemmän he niitä näyttävät tarvitsevan. Ahnaina ja himokkaina he tekevät maallisesta omaisuudesta oman qiblansa, he katselevat aina siihen suuntaan huomaamatta, että muuttuvat itse himoitsemiensa tavaroiden palvelijoiksi."
Author: Elif Shafak
21. "My dream, even now, is to walk for weeks with some friend that I love, leisurely wandering from place to place, with no route arranged and no object in view, with liberty to go on all day or to linger all day, as we choose; but the question of luggage, unknown to the simple pilgrim, is one of the rocks on which my plans have been shipwrecked, and the other is the certain censure of relatives, who, not fond of walking themselves, and having no taste for noonday naps under hedges, would be sure to paralyse my plans before they had grown to maturity by the honest horror of their cry, "How very unpleasant if you were to meet any one you know!" The relative of five hundred years back would have said "How Holy!"
Author: Elizabeth Von Arnim
22. "I stared at him and then at Tom, who had made a parallel discovery less than an hour before — and it occurred to me that there was no difference between men, in intelligence or race, so profound as the difference between the sick and the well."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
23. "And so will I here state just plainly and briefly that I accept God. But I must point out one thing: if God does exist and really created the world, as we well know, he created it according to the principles of Euclidean geometry and made the human brain capable of grasping only three dimensions of space. Yet there have been and still are mathematicians and philosophers-among them some of the most outstanding-who doubt that the whole universe or, to put it more generally, all existence was created to fit Euclidean geometry; they even dare to conceive that two parallel lines that, according to Euclid, never do meet on earth do, in fact, meet somewhere in infinity. And so my dear boy, I've decided that I am incapable of understanding of even that much, I cannot possibly understand about God."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
24. "The substance of all such paganism may be summarised thus. It is an attempt to reach the divine reality through the imagination alone; in its own field reason does not restrain it at all. It is vital to the view of all history that reason is something separate from religion even in the most rational of these civilisations. It is only as an afterthought, when such cults are decadent or on the defensive, that a few Neo-Platonists or a few Brahmins are found trying to rationalise them, and even then only by trying to allegorise them. But in reality the rivers of mythology and philosophy run parallel and do not mingle till they meet in the sea of Christendom."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
25. "Maintenant tu n'as plus de refuges. Tu as peur, tu attends que tout s'arrête, la pluie, les heures, le flot des voitures, la vie, les hommes, le monde, que tout s'écroule, les murailles, les tours, les planchers et les plafonds; que les hommes et les femmes, les vieillards et les enfants, les chiens, les chevaux, les oiseaux, un à un, tombent à terre, paralysés, pestiférés, épileptiques; que le marbre s'effrite, que le bois se pulvérise, que les maisons s'abattent en silence, que les pluies diluviennes dissolvent les peintures, disjoignent les chevilles des armoires centenaires, déchiquettent les tissus, fassent fondre l'encre des journaux; q'un feu sans flammes ronge les marches des escaliers; que les rues s'effondrent en leur exact milieu, découvrant le labyrinthe béant des égouts; que la rouille et la brume envahissent la ville."
Author: Georges Perec
26. "For most Olympic athletes, their training is their hardest challenge and where they push themselves to the limit. For Paralympians, training and competition is an escape from the hardships and struggles of their everyday life. That is the difference."
Author: Giles Duley
27. "Every person has parallel tracks. You have your personal life or your life as an artist, or whatever it is you do."
Author: Gina Bellman
28. "Ultimate horror often paralyses memory in a merciful way."
Author: H.P. Lovecraft
29. "Lost people are different. They will drive around in the same circle over and over rather than try a new path. Their fear of getting more lost paralyzes them into staying lost in the area that's just become familiar. It supersedes their ability to chart a new course. They circle and backtrack and stay comfortably lost because it's less scary than seeing something different than what's presently in front of them."
Author: Jill A. Davis
30. "Like the teens I worked with, I understood the need for miracles--they kept reality from paralyzing you"
Author: Jodi Picoult
31. "• Vivemos no tempo – ele contém-nos e molda-nos – mas nunca senti que o compreendesse muito bem. E não me refiro a teorias sobre o modo como cede, recua e dá meia volta, ou poderá existir algures em versões paralelas. Não, falo do tempo comum, quotidiano, que os relógios de pulso e de parede nos garantem passar regularmente. Existe algo mais plausível do que um ponteiro de segundos? E todavia basta a menor dor ou prazer para nos ensinar a maleabilidade do tempo. Há emoções que o aceleram, há outras que o abrandam. Às vezes parece desaparecer – até ao ponto em que desaparece mesmo, para nunca mais voltar."
Author: Julian Barnes
32. "Kalina remained paralyzed in her seat. "Oh, crap. Aaron was a vampire." She straightened up. Remain calm, Kalina. Breathe. "You're not going to eat me, are you?""No," said Stuart. "Not all vampires feed on humans. I choose not to. I drink Vampire Wine.""Vampire Wine." Kalina put the pieces together. "Jaegar...I thought he was kidding...""And Aaron drank Vampire Wine, too. To avoid succumbing to temptation. To avoid drinking blood whenever he got too...excited...."Kalina's eyes widened. "So you mean...""Vampire Wine wasn't the problem, Kalina. It was the only solution."
Author: Kailin Gow
33. "They see the straight line of my jaw along the length of their thighs and they see how it fits, the geometry of bodies. They have wondered for so long why nothing ever fits, why the knobs of their spines press hard on chairbacks and why they can't lie parallel in bed, and then there I am. I know how to fill the gaps in a girl."
Author: Kirsty Logan
34. "A lot of people I know would hate that ending, but not me. I loved it. Mainly because I got to make the book happy. I decided they made it. They made it to the past. I decided the past was our world, and the future was their world. It was parallel worlds."
Author: Lois Lowry
35. "All true wealth is biological (Aral Vorkosigan)"
Author: Lois McMaster Bujold
36. "In some parallel universe, there was a Gansey who could tell Blue that he found the ten inches of her bare calves far more tantalizing than the thirteen cubic feet of bare skin Orla sported. But in this universe, that was Adam's job. He was in a terrible mood."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
37. "Our lives may be separate, but they run in the same direction, like parallel lines."
Author: Milan Kundera
38. "No one likes a show-off, but if parallel parking was an Olympic sport, I would get gold, no probs."
Author: Miranda Hart
39. "If I had parallel lives to pursue, I would also want one as a painter."
Author: Norman Spinrad
40. "A threat leads to nothing if it is not accepted. In fighting the good fight, you should never forget that. Just as you should never forget that both attacking and fleeing are part of the fight. What isn't a part of the fight is becoming paralyzed by fear."
Author: Paulo Coelho
41. "There is in nature a parallel unity which corresponds to the unity in the mind and makes it available. This methodizing mind meets no resistance in its attempts. The scattered blocks, with which it strives to form a symmetrical structure, fit. This design following after finds with joy that like design went before. Not only man puts things in a row, but things belong in a row."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
42. "We have a paralysis in Washington that's not serving our country. We have to address these issues."
Author: Rob Portman
43. "She got inside me with her story. I could feel her flowing in me and far, faraway I related in parallel. Her smile was a reflection of my own brokenness. It defined buried feelings that I could never ignore."
Author: Robert M Drake
44. "Protestantism's evolution away from hierarchy and authority has enormous consequences for America and the world. On the one hand, the democratization of religion runs parallel to political democratization. The king of England, questioning the pope, inspires English subjects to question the king and his Anglican bishops. Such dissent is backed up by a Bible full of handy Scripture arguing for arguing with one's kIng. This is the root of self-government in the English-speaking world."
Author: Sarah Vowell
45. "It is of course no secret to contemporary philosophers and psychologists that man himself is changing in our violent century, under the influence, of course, not only of war and revolution, but also of practically everything else that lays claim to being "modern" and "progressive." We have already cited the most striking forms of Nihilist Vitalism, whose cumulative effect has been to uproot, disintegrate, and "mobilize" the individual, to substitute for his normal stability and rootedness a senseless quest for power and movement, and to replace normal human feeling by a nervous excitability. The work of Nihilist Realism, in practice as in theory, has been parallel and complementary to that of Vitalism: a work of standardization, specialization, simplification, mechanization, dehumanization; its effect has been to "reduce" the individual to the most "Primitive" and basic level, to make him in fact the slave of his environment, the perfect workman in Lenin's worldwide "factory."
Author: Seraphim Rose
46. "I spent the first twenty-five years of my life apologizing for people like Harald because we're family. Then I discovered that being related is no guarantee of love and I had a few reasons to defend Harald."
Author: Stieg Larsson
47. "We are the hollow menWe are the stuffed menLeaning togetherHeadpiece filled with straw. Alas!Our dried voices, whenWe whisper togetherAre quiet and meaninglessAs wind in dry grassOr rats' feet over broken glassIn our dry cellarShape without form, shade without colour,Paralysed force, gesture without motion;- The Hollow Men"
Author: T.S. Eliot
48. "Real terror is a crippling experience. You sweat so much that your skin goes all wrinkly like when you've been in the bath all afternoon. And then the scent of your sweat changes. It smells like cat pee, no doubt from the adrenalin. However hard you wash, it won't come off. It smothers you, as your muscles become frozen with acid and your mind paralysed by despair."
Author: Tahir Shah
49. "Sam Vimes could parallel process. Most husbands can. They learn to follow their own line of thought while at the same time listening to what their wives say. And the listening is important, because at any time they could be challenged and must be ready to quote the last sentence in full. A vital additional skill is being able to scan the dialogue for telltale phrases such as "and they can deliver it tomorrow" or "so I've invited them for dinner?" or "they can do it in blue, really quite cheaply."
Author: Terry Pratchett
50. "It's not just the embarrassment of tears. That's part of it, no doubt, but what embarrasses me much more, and always will, is the paralysis that took my heart. A moral freeze: I couldn't decide, I couldn't act, I couldn't comport myself with even a pretense of modest human dignity."
Author: Tim O'Brien

He bent his head and brushed my lips with his. His hair spilled against my forehead, sleek and startling. Shock held me immobile, shock—and something else. Part of me wanted to lean into him."
