8. "Not long ago, having expressed some disagreements in print with an old comrade of long standing, I was sent a response that he had published in an obscure newspaper. This riposte referred to my opinions as ‘racist.' I would obviously scorn to deny such an allegation on my own behalf. I would, rather, prefer to repudiate it on behalf of my former friend. He had known me for many years and cooperated with me on numerous projects, and I am quite confident that he would never have as a collaborator anyone he suspected of racial prejudice. But it does remind me, and not for the first time, that quarrels on the left have a tendency to become miniature treason trials, replete with all kinds of denunciation. There's a general tendency—not by any means confined to radicals but in some way specially associated with them—to believe that once the lowest motive for a dissenting position has been found, it must in some way be the real one."

9. "The tape measures and weighing scales of the Victorian brain scientists have been supplanted by powerful neuroimaging technologies, but there is still a lesson to be learned from historical examples such as these. State-of-the-art brain scanners offer us unprecedented information about the structure and working of the brain. But don't forget that, once, wrapping a tape measure around the head was considered modern and sophisticated, and it's important not to fall into the same old traps. As we'll see in later chapters, although certain popular commentators make it seem effortlessly easy, the sheer complexity of the brain makes interpreting and understanding the meaning of any sex differences we find in the brain a very difficult task. But the first, and perhaps surprising, issue in sex differences research is that of knowing which differences are real and which, like the intially promising cephalic index, are flukes or spurious."
Author: Cordelia Fine
10. "When I left home after graduating high school, I left as a migrant agricultural worker with a Modern Library edition of Plato in my duffel bag. It sounds kind of crazy, but I loved it. I loved the stuff. Before I knew there was a subject called philosophy, I loved it."
Author: Dallas Willard

14. "For being able to use language was a critical skill that could carry one far. One could use it professionally, as a crafter of everything from political speeches to modern novels. One could use it personally, as a tool of discovery or a means of staying connected to others. One could use it as an outlet that would feed the artistic spirit of the creator, which existed in everyone."
Author: Elizabeth George

18. "Ko se uprete zasvojenosti in izberete, da boste postali celoviti, se uravnate s svojo nefizicno pomocjo. Delo, ki ga je treba opraviti, je vaše, toda vedno vam je na voljo pomoc. Nefizicni svet, dejanja vaših vodnikov in uciteljev, se dotikajo vašega sveta na veliko nacinov- z mislijo, ki prinaša moc, s spominom, ki vas spomni, s pojavom presenecenja, ki krepi. V nefizicnem svetu je veliko radosti, ko se duša osvobodi svoje negativnosti in se kakovost njene zavesti pomakne navzgor v višje frekvence Luci. Zato ne trpite v samoti. Saj je sploh ni."
Author: Gary Zukav
19. "Ogni essere vivente, pensavo, agisce per istinto e l'unico modo per tenerlo sempre vivo nelnostro spirito, è quello di metterci in condizione di cavarcela da soli. Un po' come un animalecresciuto in cattività: se fosse riportato nel suo habitat naturale, rischierebbe di morire affamato,poiché non ha più l'istinto di cacciare. Così pensavo che anche negli esseri umani accadessequalcosa di simile e per autodifesa tendono ad allontanare chi minaccia di azzerare quell'istinto."
Author: Gianluca Frangella
20. "Un rideau de flocons blancs ininterrompu miroitait sans cesse en descendant vers la terre; il effaçait les formes, poudrait les choses d'une mousse de glace; et l'on n'entendait plus, dans le grand silence de la ville calme et ensevelie sous l'hiver, que ce froissement vague, innommable et flottant de la neige qui tombe, plutôt sensation que bruit , entremêlement d'atomes légers qui semblaient emplir l'espace, couvrir le monde."

21. "What struck me as I began to study history was how nationalist fervor--inculcated from childhood on by pledges of allegiance, national anthems, flags waving and rhetoric blowing--permeated the educational systems of all countries, including our own. I wonder now how the foreign policies of the United States would look if we wiped out the national boundaries of the world, at least in our minds, and thought of all children everywhere as our own. Then we could never drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, or napalm on Vietnam, or wage war anywhere, because wars, especially in our time, are always wars against children, indeed our children."
Author: Howard Zinn

Author: Jostein Gaarder
26. "Ma nel bene o nel male, avevo legato il mio destino a quello dei terrestri.I terrestri.Violenti ma amanti della pace.Pieni di passione ma cerebrali.Pieni di umanità ma crudeli.Impulsivi ma calcolatori.I terrestri. Complessivamente, una specie contraddittoria e molto imperfetta.Eppure… eppure in qualche modo sapevo che erano proprio loro la speranza per tutta la galassia. [Animorph #52: Il sacrificio]"
Author: K.A. Applegate

Author: Louis L'Amour

34. "Satan had been making admiring remarks about certain of the Creator's sparkling industries -- remarks which, being read between the lines, were sarcasms."
Author: Mark Twain
35. "No one is adequate to comprehending the misery of my lot! Fate obliges me to be constantly in movement: I am not permitted to pass more than a fortnight in the same place. I have no Friend in the world, and from the restlessness of my destiny I never can acquire one. Fain would I lay down my miserable life, for I envy those who enjoy the quiet of the Grave: But Death eludes me, and flies from my embrace. In vain do I throw myself in the way of danger. I plunge into the Ocean; The Waves throw me back with abhorrence upon the shore: I rush into fire; The flames recoil at my approach: I oppose myself to the fury of Banditti; Their swords become blunted, and break against my breast: The hungry Tiger shudders at my approach, and the Alligator flies from a Monster more horrible than itself. God has set his seal upon me, and all his Creatures respect this fatal mark!"

We have to tell the people why this atom-smasher is going to benefit their lives."
Author: Michio Kaku
39. "The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past. They are fighting for access to the laboratories where photographs are retouched and biographies and histories rewritten."
Author: Milan Kundera

42. "I hope it is not necessary for me to stress the platonic nature of our relationship- not platonic in the purest sense, there was no philosophical discourse, but we certainly didn't fuck, which is usually what people mean by platonic; which I bet would really piss Plato off, that for all his thinking and chatting his name has become an adjective for describing sexless trysts."
Author: Russell Brand

45. "Nick and the CandlestickI am a miner. The light burns blue. Waxy stalactitesDrip and thicken, tearsThe earthen wombExudes from its dead boredom. Black bat airsWrap me, raggy shawls, Cold homicides.They weld to me like plums.Old cave of calcium Icicles, old echoer.Even the newts are white,Those holy Joes.And the fish, the fish ----Christ! they are panes of ice,A vice of knives, A piranha Religion, drinkingIts first communion out of my live toes. The candleGulps and recovers its small altitude,Its yellows hearten.O love, how did you get here? O embryoRemembering, even in sleep, Your crossed position. The blood blooms cleanIn you, ruby. The painYou wake to is not yours.Love, love,I have hung our cave with roses, With soft rugs ----The last of Victoriana. Let the starsPlummet to their dark address,Let the mercuric Atoms that cripple drip Into the terrible well,You are the oneSolid the spaces lean on, envious. You are the baby in the barn."

48. "Czlowiek jest panem przeciwienstw, dzieki niemu istnieja, a wiec jest od nich dostojniejszy. Dostojniejszy od smierci, zbyt dostojny dla niej, bo glowa jego jest wolna. Dostojniejszy od zycia, zbyt dostojny dla niego, bo serce jego jest pobozne.[...] Nie dam smierci panowac nad mymi myslami! Bo na tym polega dobroc i milosc ludzka, na niczym innym. Smierc jest wielka potega. Odkrywamy przed nia glowe i zblizamy sie do niej na palcach.[...] Rozum niemadrze wyglada wobec smierci, bo jest jedynie cnota, smierc natomiast jest wolnoscia, ucieczka, bezksztaltem i rozkosza.[...] rozkosza, a nie miloscia. Smierc i milosc: nie rymuja sie ze soba, bylby to niesmaczny i falszywy rym! Milosc przeciwstawia sie smierci, ona jedna, nie rozum; i jest mocniejsza od smierci. Ona jedna, nie rozum, budzi dobre mysli.[...]Czlowiek w imie dobroci i milosci nie powinien dac smierci panowac nad swoimi myslami. I z tym sie budze..."

Today's Quote

When you're a kid, they tell you that it's what's on the inside that counts. Looks don't matter . But that's not true. Guys like Phoebus in The Hunchback, or Dorian, or the old Kyle Kingsbury-- they can be scumbags to women and still get away with it because they're good-looking. Being ugly is a kind of prisoner."
