1. "Adalah semua orang Dukuh Paruk–termasuk Srintil–mereka tidak tahu apa-apa tentang sistem atau jalinan birokrasi kekuasaan. Dalam wawasan mereka semua priayi adalah sama, yakni tangan kekuasaan. Setiap priayi boleh datang atas nama kekuasaan, tak peduli mereka adalah hansip, mantri pasar, opas kacamatan, atau seorang pejabat dinas perkebunan negara esperti Marsusi. Dan ketika kekuasaan, menjadi aspek yang paling dominan dalam kehidupan masyarakat, orang Dukuh Paruk seperti Srintil tidak mungkin mengerti perbedaan antara polisi, tentara, dan pejabat perkebunan. Semuanya adalah tangan kekuasaan dan Srintil tidka mungkin bersikap lain kecuali tunduk dan pasrah."
Author: Ahmad Tohari
2. "..Pamanku yang berjiwa lapang dan merupakan umat Nabi Muhammad yang amat pemurah, menyediakan kopi miskin dalam menu warungnya. Sesekali, secara diam-diam, pamanku menyuruh kami menambahkan gula untuk kopi miskin, karena ia tak sampai hati pada kaum yang papa itu. Namun aneh, pembeli melarat yang telah terbiasa dengan kopi miskin malah tak menyukai hal itu. Pelajaran moral nomor dua puluh dua: kemiskinan susah diberantas karena pelakunya senang menjadi miskin."

3. "Bizim hepimizin içinde zübüklük olmasa, bizler de birer zübük olmasak, aramizdan böyle zübükler büyüyemezdi. Hepimizde birer parça olan zübüklük birlesip iste basimiza böyle zübükler çikiyor. Oysa zübüklük bizde, bizim içimizde. Onlari biz, kendi zübüklügümüzden yaratiyoruz. Sonra, kendi zübüklüklerimizin bir tek Zübük'de birlestigini görünce ona kiziyoruz. Bu zübükler heryerde var, biz zübükler nerde varsak, onlar da orada..."

4. "Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

Ellenben a no - s ez tudományosan bizonyított tény - úgy melegszik fel, mint a vasaló. Lassan, fokozatosan forr fel, mint a jó húsleves. De ha egyszer átforrósodott, nincs, aki lehutse."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
7. "Does she still love you?""I don't think so," Magnus said dryly. "She wasn't very pleasant the last time I saw her.

"As the person being objectified, I ... object to that description of me."
Author: Cassandra Clare

(come il tempo per scrivere, d'altronde, o il tempo per amare.)rubato a cosa?diciamo, al dovere di vivere.[...]il tempo per leggere, come il tempo per amare, dilata il tempo per vivere."

16. "Hay metáforas más reales que las personas que pasan por la calle. Hay imágenes en los rincones de los libros que viven más nítidamente que muchos hombres y mujeres. Hay frases literarias que tienen una personalidad absolutamente humana. Hay fragmentos de párrafos míos que me hielan de pavor, de tal modo los siento claramente como seres humanos, tan bien perfilados contra las paredes de mi cuarto, por la noche, en la sombra. He escrito frases cuyo sonido -es imposible ocultar su sonido-, es absolutamente el de una cosa que ganó exterioridad absoluta y alma por completo."

That was one of the reasons pack members still referred to it as a curse, despite the fact that, in the modern age of enlightenment and free will, clavigers chose metamorphosis. The change comprised a good deal of biological rearranging. This, like rearranging one's parlor furniture for a party, involved a transition from tidy to very messy to tidy once more. And, as with any redecoration, there was a moment in the middle where it seemed impossible that everything could possibly go back together harmoniously."
Author: Gail Carriger

22. "Trató de volver a vivir ese momento, la tierra roja y húmeda, el intenso olor de los bosques de pinos y eucaliptos, donde el tapiz de las hojas secas se maceraba, después del largo y cálido verano, y donde la luz cobriza del sol se filtraba entre las copas de los árboles. Trató de recordar el frío, el silencio y esa preciosa sensación de ser los dueños de la tierra, de tener veinte años y la vida por delante, de amarse tranquilos, ebrios de olor a bosque y de amor, sin pasado, sin sospechar el futuro, con la única increíble riqueza de ese instante presente, en que se miraban, se olían, se besaban, se exploraban, envueltos en el murmullo del viento entre los árboles y el acantilado, estallando en un fragor de espuma olorosa, y ellos dos, abrazados dentro del mismo poncho como siameses en un mismo pellejo, riéndose y jurando que sería para siempre, convencidos de que eran los únicos en todo el universo en haber descubierto el amor."
Author: Isabel Allende
23. "Mr. Lecky had proceeded quickly for several moments before he drew up, shocked. A few more steps and he might have stumbled on his idiot, for the stairs he had been approaching were the front stairs to the silverware department, which he wished to avoid. Shaken by this unpleasant mistake, he re-directed himself, turning back down the center of the dark floor. Certainly he did not want to see the corpse; the corpse could not very well want to see him."
Author: James Gould Cozzens

Estoy aquí contigo, ¿no?—Sí, lo estás —Frunció el ceño—. Algunas veces me pregunto por qué.Dawson la miró fijamente por un momento, luego se rió. No podía estar hablando en serio. No había manera que no supiera lo linda que era y como su risa atraía a las personas."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
25. "She has drunk a lot. There have been at least three glasses since she got here, and there were many more back at the bar. But she has reached that rare, pleasant state of alcoholic equilibrium.

26. "Morrerão milhares, Morrerão centenas de milhares, Morrerão centenas de milhares de homens e mulheres, a terra encher-se-á de gritos de dor, de uivos e roncos de agonia, o fumo dos queimados cobrirá o sol, a gordura deles rechinará sobre as brasas, o cheiro agoniará, e tudo isto será por minha culpa, Não por tua culpa, por tua causa, Pai, afasta de mim este cálice, Que tu o bebas é a condição do meu poder e da tua glória, Não quero esta glória, Mas eu quero esse poder."

O parto, o sofrimento, um sofrimento horrendo, aquele último minuto... (...)'E tudo isso para quê? No que vai dar, tudo isso?

34. "Her name is Hope?" John asked, the corners of his mouth beginning to tug upwards."No." I bristled, thinking he was making fun of me. Then I realized I'd been caught. "Well, all right…so what if it is? I'm not going to name her after some depressing aspect of the Underworld like you do all your pets. I looked up the name Alastor. That was the name of one of the death horses that drew Hades's chariot. And Typhon?" I glanced at the dog, cavorting in and out of the waves, seemingly oblivious of the cold. "I can only imagine, but I'm sure it means something equally unpleasant.""Typhon was the father of all monsters," John said. He'd given up trying to suppress his grin. "The deadliest of all the creatures in Greek mythology.""Nice," I said sarcastically. "Well, I prefer to name my pets something that reminds me there's-""Hope?" His grin broadened."Very funny." True, I'd admitted to him that I was inexperienced. But I didn't have to prove it by acting like I was twelve."

36. "As I stumble through this lifehelp me to create more laughter than tears, dispense more cheer than gloom, spread more joy than despair. Never let me become so indifferent that I will fail to see the wonder in the eyes of a child, or the twinkle in the eyes of the aged. Never let me forget that my total effort is to cheer people, make them happy, and forget momentarily all the unpleasantness in their lives. And in my final moment, may I hear You whisper, 'When you made My people smile, you made Me smile."

Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
38. "She had been a pleasant surprise.

42. "Lo mejor es que no le parezco osco ni reservado. Elaine y yo pasamos mucho tiempo juntos; supongo que si no tuviese una edad tan grotesca, diría que es mi chica. Sin embargo no está mal que sólo sea una amiga especial; a veces es mejor que una novia. Nos ahorramos muchos de los problemas que trae aparejados el noviazgo, y, aunque sé que nadie por debajo de los cincuenta me creerá, en ocasiones las cenizas son mejores que una auténtica fogata. Es extraño, pero cierto."

44. "On the day of the dead, when the year too dies,Must the youngest open the oldest hillsThrough the door of the birds, where the breeze breaks.There fire shall fly from the raven boy,And the silver eyes that see the wind,And the light shall have the harp of gold.By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,On Cadfan's Way where the kestrels call;Though grim from the Grey King shadows fall,Yet singing the golden harp shall guideTo break their sleep and bid them ride.When light from the lost land shall return,Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,And where the midsummer tree grows tallBy Pendragon's sword the Dark shall fall.Y maent yr mynyddoedd yn canu,ac y mae'r arglwyddes yn dod."

Author: Windry Ramadhina
49. "Bagiku, hujan menyimpan senandung liar yang membisikan 1001 kisah.Tiap tetesnya yang merdu berbisik lembut, menyuarakan nyanyian alam yang membuatku rindu mengendus bau tanah basah.Bulir-bulir yang jatuh menapak diatas daun, mengalir lurus menyisakan sebaris air di dedaunan.Sejuk, mirip embun.Hidup seperti ini.Aku bisa merasakan senja yang bercampur bau tanah basah sepeninggal hujan.Seperti kanvas putih yang tersapu warna-warna homogen indah.Dentingan sisa-sisa titik hujan di atas atap terasa seperti seruling alam yang bisa membuatku memejamkan mata.Melodi hidup, aku menyebutnya seperti itu.Saat semua ketenangan bisa kudapatkan tanpa harus memikirkan apa pun."
Author: Yoana Dianika
