1. "Je me rendis compte que personne - pas même mon père, assis à quelques pas de moi - ne pouvait pénétrer mon espace de lecture, distinguer ce que le livre m'expliquait avec impudeur, et que rien, sinon ma propre volonté, ne pouvait en donner à quiconque la possibilité."

4. "Ma mère s'occupait plutôt de l'épicerie, mon père du café. D'un coté la bousculade de midi, le temps minuté, les clientes n'aiment pas attendre, c'est un monde debout, aux volontés multiples, une bouteille de bière, un paquet d'épingles neige, méfiant, à rassurer constamment, vous verrez cette marque-là c'est bien meilleur. Du théâtre, du bagout. Ma mère sortait lessivée, rayonnante, de sa boutique. De l'autre côté, les petits verres pépères, la tranquillité assise, le temps sans horloge, des hommes installés là pour des heures. Inutile de se précipiter, pas besoin de faire l'article ni même la conversation, les clients causent pour deux. Ça tombe bien, mon père est lunatique, c'est ma mère qui le dit."
Author: Annie Ernaux
5. "Friends are an aid to the young, to guard them from error; to the elderly, to attend to their wants and to supplement their failing power of action; to those in the prime of life, to assist them to noble deeds."

Author: Brother Lawrence
9. "Vivamus, mea Lesbia, atque amemus, rumoresque senum severiorum omnes unius aestimemus assis! soles occidere et redire possunt; nobis cum semel occidit brevis lux, nox est perpetua una dormienda. da mi basia mille, deinde centum, dein mille altera, dein secunda centum, deinde usque altera mille, deinde centum; dein, cum milia multa fecerimus, conturbabimus illa, ne sciamus, aut ne quis malus invidere possit cum tantum sciat esse basiorum."
Author: Catullus

11. "Scrooge followed to the window: desperate in his curiosity. He looked out.The air was filled with phantoms, wandering hither and thither in restless haste, and moaning as they went. Every one of them wore chains like Marley's Ghost; some few (they might be guilty governments) were linked together; none were free. Many had been personally known to Scrooge in their lives. He had been quite familiar with one old ghost, in a white waistcoat, with a monstrous iron safe attached to its ankle, who cried piteously at being unable to assist a wretched woman with an infant, whom it saw below, upon a door-step. The misery with them all was, clearly, that they sought to interfere, for good, in human matters, and had lost the power for ever"
Author: Charles Dickens

Because of this process, stories can teach, correct errors, lighten the heart and the darkness, provide psychic shelter, assist transformation and heal wounds."
Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estés
14. "It put me upon reflecting how little repining there would be among mankind at any condition of life if people would rather compare their condition with those that were worse, in order to be thankful, than be always comparing them with those which are better, to assist their murmurings and complainings."
Author: Daniel Defoe
15. "A father is the one friend upon whom we can always rely. In the hour of need, when all else fails, we remember him upon whose knees we sat when children, and who soothed our sorrows; and even though he may be unable to assist us, his mere presence serves to comfort and strengthen us."
Author: Émile Gaboriau

Author: Evgeny Morozov
17. "By establishing a social policy that keeps physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia illegal but recognizes exceptions, we would adopt the correct moral view: the onus of proving that everything had been tried and that the motivation and rationale were convincing would rest on those who wanted to end a life."

Author: Fergie
19. "Thirty years ago [written 2009], over-regulation, over-taxation, mis-regulation, statism, state corporatism, and economic folly, cosiness and regulatory capture, and a crescent ideological enemy without, who were assisted by enemies – both fifth columnists and useful fools – within, had led to a crisis of confidence in the West, and in all lands that – and amongst all peoples, particularly those who were oppressed in their own lands, who – loved and desired liberty. Of course, thirty years ago, Britain had Margaret Thatcher to turn to."
Author: G.M.W. Wemyss

Author: Ilona Andrews

31. "Eu estava no desconhecido.Guardamos os segredos ao lado de tudo o que não dizemos. Nesse grande sotão escuro há de tudo, há aquilo que não dizemos porque temos medo, porque temos vergonha, porque não somos capazes; há aquilo que não dizemos porque desconhecemos, ignoramos mesmo, apesar de estar lá, em nós. Os segredos são assim. Eles estão lá, podemos visitá-los, assistir a eles, sabemos as palavras exactas para dizê-los e, muitas vezes, temos tanta vontade de contá-los. Mas escolhemos não o fazer.Os segredos estão dento de nós. Como tudo o que sabemos, também os segredos nos constituem. Quando os seguramos, quano somos mais fortes e os contemos, alastram-se em nós.Desde dentro, chegam à nossa pele. Depois, avançam até sermos capazes de os distinguir à nossa volta. E, no silêncio, somos capazes de os reconhecer. Então, nesse momento, já não são apenas os segredos que estão dentro de nós, somos também nós que estamos dentro dos segredos."
Author: José Luís Peixoto

Author: Lara Adrian

Author: Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
36. "The Normal is the good smile in a child's eyes:-alright. It is also the dead stare in a million adults. It both sustains and kills-like a god. It is the Ordinary made beautiful: it is also the Average made lethal. The Normal is the indispensable, murderous God of Health, and I am his priest. My tools are very delicate. My compassion is honest. I have honestly assisted children in this room. I have talked away terrors and relieved many agonies. But also-beyond question-I have cut from the parts of individuality repugnant to this god, in both his aspects. Parts sacred to rarer and more wonderful gods. And at what length...Sacrifices to Zeus took at the most, surely, sixty seconds each. Sacrifices to the Normal can take as long as sixty months."

Author: Saffron Burrows
41. "When emotions turn and stay sour, when thoughts become cynical and judgmental, good and compassionate treatment is on the line. Helpers who become sour and cynical tend to begrudge their high need clients for their neediness. There is a risk that helpers become too well-practiced at taking a bleak view of those they have avowed to assist. There is a temptation to begin to blame clients for their failure to improve. If treatment ends pre-maturely, with either a client never returning to treatment or a helper 'firing' them out of frustration, there is a tendency for the client to take the fall. Of course what we are talking about here are signs of burnout."
Author: Scott E. Spradlin
42. "Recommendations and categorization are both useful features to seek out when trying to make a difficult decision, because they can benefit our choices in two ways. They make the decision in question easier by allowing us to borrow the knowledge of experts or crowds, and they also help us to develop our own expertise more rapidly than we would if we chose without assistance. Learning what others consider good and relevant provides us with a general overview of a given field, catalyzing our understanding of it and the development of our preferences within it."
Author: Sheena Iyengar

"And who would you send to teach the humans?"There was a brief outburst of laughter from Vetinari, who immediately cupped his hand over his mouth. "Oh I do beg your pardon," he said."
Author: Terry Pratchett
46. "A manager is an assistant to his men."
Author: Thomas J. Watson
47. "To physically overcome death – is that not the goal? – we must think the unthinkable thoughts and ask unanswerable questions. Yet we must not lose ourselves in abstract vapors of philosophy. Death ahs his concrete allies, we must enlist ours. Never underestimate how much assistance, how much satisfaction, how much comfort, how much soul and transcendence there might be in a well-made taco and a cold bottle of beer. The solution to the ultimate problem may prove to be elemental and quite practical. Philosophers have argued for centuries about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, but materialists have known all along that it depends on whether they are jitterbugging or dancing cheek to cheek."
Author: Tom Robbins
48. "Even someone as lowly as an assistant U.S. attorney has to undergo a background check, and you're asked a series of very invasive questions, and you're expected to tell the truth and they're under penalty of perjury. And you're asked those questions so you can't be blackmailed or extorted."

Author: Wallace Stegner
