Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble.

In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don't get any damned tea.I liked the Irish way better."

From the battlements Finn gazed up at them, seeing the impossible distances between galaxies and nebulae, and thinking they were not as wide as the distances between people. In the study Claudia sensed them, in the sparks and crackles on the screen.

A single spark flickered deep in the coin Keiro spun and caught, spun and caught."

"The large, gaping flaws in the construction of the stories--mad wives in the attic, strange apparitions in Belgium--are a representation of the life she could not face; these gothic subterfuges represent the mind at a breaking point, frantic to find any way out. If the flaws are only to be attributed to the practicce of popular fiction of the time, we cannot then explain the large amount of genuine feeling that goes into them. They stand for the hidden wishes of an intolerable life."

Or, nous avons vu que la bourgeoisie nationale des pays sous-developpés est incapable de remplir une quelconque mission. Au bout de quelques années, la désagrégation du parti devient manifeste et tout observateur, même superficiel, peut se rendre compte que l'ancien parti, devenu aujourd'hui squelettique, ne sert qu'à immobiliser le peuple. Le parti, qui pendant le combat avait attiré à lui l'ensemble de la nation, se décompose. Les intellectuels , qui à la veille de l'indépendance avaient rallié le parti, confirment par leur comportement actuel que ce ralliement n'avait d'autre but que de participer à la distribution du gâteau de l'indépendance. Le parti devient un moyen de réussite individuelle."
Author: Frantz Fanon

Quando cominci a prendere subito tutti quelli buoni, poi rimangono solo quelli che non ti piacciono. È quello che penso sempre io nei momenti di crisi. Meglio che mi tolgo questi cattivi di mezzo, poi tutto andrà bene. Perciò la vita è una scatola di biscotti."

She learns everything from these books... so I don't give a shit when, of how much she reads, I get rewards."

25. "Keep that red-haired girl of yours in the open air all summer and don't let her read books until she gets more spring into her step." This message frightened Marilla wholesomely. She read Anne's death warrant by consumption in it unless it was scrupulously obeyed. As a result, Anne had the golden summer of her life as far as freedom and frolic went. She walked, rowed, berried, and dreamed to her heart's content; and when September came she was bright-eyed and alert, with a step that would have satisfied the Spencervale doctor and a heart full of ambition and zest once more. "I just feel like studying with might and main," she declared as she brought her books down from the attic. "Oh, you good old friends, I'm glad to see your honest face once more - yes, even you, geometry."
Author: L.M. Montgomery
26. "War is not a polite recreation but the vilest thing in life, and we ought to understand that and not play at war. Our attitude towards the fearful necessity of war ought to be stern.

31. "While everyone adjusted themselves and their packs, Donna sniffed curiously at Louie's nose. Her attitude suggested she might want to make friends with the giant dog; Lou couldn't resist the temptation. Once Donna lured Louie in, she slowly, cautiously, turned about to align her hooves with Louie's head. Perhaps she didn't like dogs. Perhaps she didn't want a rival for Monty's attentions. Perhaps she was merely an impish tarkus much like the Dane himself. Cody watched as the Dane failed to grasp the gravity of his predicament. At the last moment, Cody smacked Louie's hind end, scuttling the devious donkey's murderous trap."
Author: Map Whitman
32. "Un motto, in sintesi, domina e illumina i nostri studi: <>. Non diciamo che il bravo storico è estraneo alle passioni; ha per lo meno quella. Motto, non nascondiamocelo, carico di difficoltà, ma anche di speranze. Soprattutto, motto carico di amicizia. Persino nell'azione, noi giudichiamo troppo. E' comodo gridare <> Non comprendiamo mai abbastanza. Chi è diverso da noi - straniero, avversario politico - passa, quasi necessariamente, per un cattivo. Anche per condurre le lotte che non si possono evitare, un po' più di intelligenza delle anime sarebbe necessaria; a maggior ragione, per evitarle, quando si è ancora in tempo. La storia, purché rinunci alle sue false arie da arcangelo, deve aiutarci a guarire a questo difetto. Essa è una vasta esperienza delle varietà umane, un luogo di incontro fra gli uomini. La vita, come la scienza, ha tutto da guadagnare dal fatto che questo incontro sia fraterno."
Author: Marc Bloch

Author: Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

"My friend, I suspect this is much more to your liking than mine.""You're probably right," agreed Mr Umezaki, smiling while his fingertips reached out for an oncoming phallus."
Author: Mitch Cullin
37. "He is totally abandoned in the way he buys book after book, never to read a single one. I wouldn't mind if he used his head and bought in moderation, but no.
