5. "In my mind's eye I can still see the first night flight I made in Argentina. It was pitch-dark. Yet in the black void, I could see the lights of man shining down below on the plains, like faintly luminous earthbound stars. Each star was a beacon signaling the presence of a human mind. Here a man was meditating on human happiness, perhaps, or on justice or peace. Lost among this flock of stars was the star of some solitary shepherd. There, perhaps, a man was in communication with the heavens, as he labored over his calculations of the nebula of Andromeda. And there, a pair of lovers. These fires were burning all over the countryside, and each of them, aven the most humble, had to be fed. The fire of the poet, of the teacher, of the carpenter. But among all these living fires, how many closed windows there were, how many dead stars, fires that gave off no light for lack of nourishment."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

Je voudrais acheter du temps japonais avec des mimosas ruisselants de pluie."

9. "A history of nightlife!--what an interesting concept. A history of a people, told not through their daily travails and successive political upheavals, but via the changes in their nightly celebrations and unwindings. History is, in this telling, accompanied by a bottle of Malbec, some fine Argentine steak, tango music, dancing, and gossip. It unfolds through and alongside illicit activities that take place in the multitude of discos, dance parlors, and clubs. Its direction, the way people live, is determined on half-lit streets, in bars, and in smoky late-night restaurants. This history is inscribed in songs, on menus, via half-remembered conversations, love affairs, drunken fights, and years of drug abuse."
Author: David Byrne

Talor certo, m'avviene d'intenerirmi anch'io nelle notti serene;e, se in qualche giardino entro, aspirando il maggio con il mio poveraccio di naso, sotto un raggio di argento qualche donna che passeggia a braccetto di un cavaliere io seguo, e il cor mi balza in petto, e penso, ahimè, che anch'io vorrei meco averne una per passeggiare a lenti passi sotto la luna. E mi esalto, e m'oblio... Quand'ecco all'improvviso l'ombra del mio profilo su pel muro ravviso!"
Author: Edmond Rostand
14. "Oui, c'est votre idée, à vous tous, les ouvriers français, déterrer un trésor, pour le manger seul ensuite, dans un coin d'égoïsme et de fainéantise. Vous avez beau crier contre les riches, le courage vous manque de rendre aux pauvres l'argent que la fortune vous envoie... Jamais vous ne serez dignes du bonheur, tant que vous aurez quelque chose à vous, et que votre haine des bourgeois viendra uniquement de votre besoin enragé d'être des bourgeois à leur place."

Oui, ce serait un type très suprême d'homme s'il apportait la démonstration que l'existence, tant ici qu'ailleurs, peut se passer de travail forcé, d'instruments de torture, d'outils de mort, d'argent, de dernière mode, de prophylaxie, de gouvernement et la suite."

Author: Honoré De Balzac

27. "A horse perceives eye contact as provocative, as if it and its status in the herd are not being respected. If it cannot avoid eye contact, it will react in a different way, by rebelling for example. In dressage you don't get anywhere by not showing respect, however superior your species might be. Any animal trainer can tell you that. In the mountains in Argentina there's a wild horse which will jump off the nearest precipice if any human tries to ride it."

Tu n'as que des aliments qui ne rassasient pas ; de l'or pâle, qui sans cesse s'écoule des mains comme le vif-argent; un jeu auquel on ne gagne jamais ; une fille qui jusque dans mes bras fait les yeux doux à mon voisin ; l'honneur, belle divinité qui s'évanouit comme un météore."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

32. "Mi único diálogo verdadero es con este jarrito verde." Estudiaba el comportamiento extraordinario del mate, la respiración de la yerba fragantemente levantada por el agua y que con la succión baja hasta posarse sobre sí misma, perdido todo brillo y todo perfume a menos que un chorrito de agua la estimule de nuevo, pulmón argentino de repuesto para solitarios y tristes."
Author: Julio Cortázar

38. "Moi je vole, je plane, tandis qu'il y a pleins de gens qui sont morts de l'interieur. […] L'argent qu'ils gagnent, ils le dépensent dans une télévision neuve, alors que l'ancienne marche encore, dans une nouvelle voiture, parce que la précédente est trop vielle, ou dans des vacances pour se distraire et oublier cet affreux boulot qu'ils sont obligés de faire parce qu'ils ont besoin de cet argent…"
Author: Melvin Burgess
39. "« Pourquoi tu n'arrêtes pas ? » demanda Jed. Son père le regarda sans réagir, avec une expression d'incompréhension totale.« Je veux dire que tu as gagné pas mal d'argent. Tu pourrais certainement te retirer, profiter un peu de la vie. » Son père le fixait toujours, comme si les mots n'arrivaient pas à son esprit, ou qu'il ne parvenait pas à leur donner un sens, puis au bout d'au moins une minute il demande : « Mais qu'est-ce que je ferais ? », et sa voix était celle d'un enfant égaré."

Author: Olivia Hussey
42. "A truly enlightened attitude to language should simply be to let six thousand or more flowers bloom. Subcultures should be allowed to thrive, not just because it is wrong to squash them, because they enrich the wider culture. Just as Black English has left its mark on standard English Culture, South Africans take pride in the marks of Afrikaans and African languages on their vocabulary and syntax. New Zealand's rugby team chants in Maori, dancing a traditional dance, before matches. French kids flirt with rebellion by using verlan, a slang that reverses words' sounds or syllables (so femmes becomes meuf). Argentines glory in lunfardo, an argot developed from the underworld a centyry ago that makes Argentine Spanish unique still today. The nonstandard greeting "Where y'at?" for "How are you?" is so common among certain whites in New Orleans that they bear their difference with pride, calling themselves Yats. And that's how it should be."
Author: Robert Lane Greene
43. "I am told that César Aira writes two books a year, at least, some of which are published by a little Argentinean company named Beatriz Viterbo, after the character in Borges's story "The Aleph." The books of his that I have been able to find were published by Mondadori and and Tusquets Argentina. It's frustrating, because once you've started reading Aira, you don't want to stop. His novels seem to put the theories of Gombrowicz into practice, except, and the difference is fundamental, that Gombrowicz was the abbot of a luxurious imaginary monastery, while Aira is a nun or novice among the Discalced Carmelites of the Word. Sometimes he is reminiscent of Roussel (Roussel on his knees in a bath red with blood), but the only living writer to whom he can be compared is Barcelona's Enrique Vila-Matas. Aira is an eccentric, but he is also one of the three or four best writers working in Spanish today."
Author: Roberto Bolaño
44. "Si on ne pouvait pas acheter e l'amour avec de l'argent, l'amour perdrait beaucoup de sa valeur et l'argent aussi."
Author: Romain Gary
45. "The beautiful came to this city [Hollywood] in huge pathetic herds, to suffer, to be humiliated, to see the powerful currency of their beauty devalued like the Russian ruble or Argentine peso;to work as bellhops, as bar hostesses, as garbage collectors, as maids. The city was a cliff and they were its stampeding lemmings. At the foot of the cliff was the valley of the broken dolls."
Author: Salman Rushdie
46. "Vimes stuck his helmet under his arm, smoothed back his hair, and knocked. He'd considered asking Sargent Colon to accompany him, but had brushed the idea aside quickly. He couldn't have tolerated the sniggering. Anyway, what was there to be afraid of? He'd stared into the jaws of death three times; four, if you included telling Vetinari to shut up."
Author: Terry Pratchett
47. "On July 18, we will mark the 12th anniversary of the senseless loss of 85 lives in the bombing of the Jewish Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina."
Author: Tom Lantos
48. "Argentine political life is like the life of an ant community or an African forest tribe: full of events, full of crisis and deaths, but life is always cyclical, and the year ends as it begins."
Author: V. S. Naipaul

Author: W. E. B. Griffin
50. "The Peruvian faces are completely different from that faces in Argentina and in Brazil."
