1. "Sono innamorata dello smettere. A suo modo è un'arte, se ci pensate. Smettere bene richiede un innato senso della bellezza; bisogna saper sentire il momento della svolta, proprio quando il desiderio fa la sua comparsa, quello è il momento di darci un taglio, giù deciso, l'istante in cui lo smettere è maturo come una pesca che si fa dolce sull'albero: crack, si spacca il picciolo, la pesca cade per terra, nera e argento di mosche."
Author: Aimee Bender

3. "It had only been two days – two days – since he'd seen her last, and yet he'd missed her every step of the way. How was that possible? To miss someone you'd scarcely had in your life at all? For all his knowledge, he had no answer, only knew that every moment spent by her side made it that much more difficult to leave again.

And mindful, his responsibilities, self-appointed though they were, crowding back into his mind on a silent sigh. The Descent was still closing in on him, and Dmitri still lived, which meant there was too much left to do and no time for distraction. But still..."

"No volverás a mirar tu reloj, ese objeto inservible que mide falsamente el tiempo acordado a la vanidad humana, esas manecillas que marcan tediosamente las largas horas inventadas para engañar el verdadero tiempo, el tiempo que corre con la velocidad insultante, mortal, que ningún reloj puede medir.

Her last night's sleep had been fitful, full of dreams where Khalid made her suffer for running away. Now she felt drained and groggy, unable to get the images of Khalid spanking her over his knee and then ravishing her out of her tired head."Look," the caravan master said. "Riders approaching, a great armed party. No doubt they are searching for escaped slaves.""No doubt." Heather straightened up wearily in the saddle, determined to outwit Khalid and conceal her true identity as a runaway. The one thing she was sure of was that capture would bring a fate worse than death. Already she could imagine Khalid tying her up, spanking her bottom, making her howl for mercy until she had no pride or will to resist. And then would come the true test of her virtue . . ."

46. "For, from the time that the Bishop of Rome had gotten to be acknowledged for bishop universal, by pretence of succession to St. Peter, their whole hierarchy, or kingdom of darkness, may be compared not unfitly to the kingdom of fairies; that is, to the old wives' fables in England concerning ghosts and spirits, and the feats they play in the night. And if a man consider the original of this great ecclesiastical dominion, he will easily perceive that the papacy is no other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof: for so did the papacy start up on a sudden out of the ruins of that heathen power."
Author: Thomas Hobbes

49. "És ez még semmi. Mindig akadnak olyanok, akik felvállalják, hogy megvédik Istent, mintha a Végso Valóság, a lét fenntartó kerete gyenge és tehetetlen volna. Ezek az emberek elmennek egy lepra torzította no mellett, aki pár fillérért koldul, elmennek a rongyokba öltözött, utcán lakó gyerekek mellett, és azt gondolják: „Hát igen, ez már csak így van." De ha felfigyelnek valami Isten elleni apró sérelemre, az már egészen más ügy. Az arcuk kivörösödik, mellkasuk zihál, dühös szavakat fröcskölnek. Felháborodásuk foka elképeszto. Elszántságuk félelmetes. Ezek az emberek nem ismerik fel, hogy az Istent belülrol kell védelmezni, nem kívülrol. Dühüket magukra kellene irányítaniuk. Mert a megmutatkozó gonosz a belso gonosz, akit kiengedtek. A fo harctér a jóért nem a nyilvános aréna területe, hanem minden szív kis tisztása. Közben az özvegyek és a hajléktalan gyerekek sorsa nagyon nehéz, tehát az álszenteknek inkább oket kellene oly buzgón védeniük, nem pedig Istent."
Author: Yann Martel
