5. "At the time of Lewis and Clark, setting the prairies on fire was a well-known signal that meant, ‘Come down to the water.' It was an extravagant gesture, but we can't do less. If the landscape reveals one certainty, it is that the extravagant gesture is the very stuff of creation. After the extravagant gesture of creation in the first place, the universe has continued to deal exclusively in extravagances, flinging intricacies and colossi down aeons of emptiness, heaping profusions on profligacies with ever fresh vigor. The whole show has been on fire from the word go. I come down to the water to cool my eyes. But everywhere I look, I see fire: that which isn't flint is tinder, and the whole world sparks and flames."
Author: Annie Dillard

Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
7. "Films are for everyone, collective, generous, with children cheering when the cavalry arrives. And they're even better on TV: two can watch and comment. But your books are selfish. Solitary. Some of them can't even be read, they fall to bits if you open them. A person who's interested only in books doesn't need other people, and that frightens me"
Author: Arturo Pérez Reverte
8. "Hitoshi:Não posso mais ficar aqui. A cada momento eu sigo em frente. É impossível deter o fluxo do tempo, não tenho escolha. Eu vou.Uma caravana pára e outra parte. Ainda há pessoas que tenho que conhecer, outras que jamais voltarei a encontrar. Pessoas que passam por mim sem que eu o perceba, pessoas com quem cruzo apenas. Mas á medida que as cumprimento, tenho a sensação de que ficam mais transparentes. Devo viver com os olhos voltados para a corrente do rio.Peço-lhe, do coração, que guarde para sempre junto de você a imagem da garota que eu fui.Obrigada por te-se despedido de mim acenando.Por ter-se despedido acenando muitas, muitas vezes."
Author: Banana Yoshimoto
9. "While we're at it, why don't we add a third emotion to this list: lust. You are probably unaware that Linnaeus lumped the tomato into the same genus as the potato, a food with a reputation for its widespread availability and easy satisfaction of oral needs."
Author: Benson Bruno

13. "My feet they are sore, and my limbs they are weary; Long is the way, and the mountains are wild;Soon will the twilight close moonless and dreary Over the path of the poor orphan child.Why did they send me so far and so lonely, Up where the moors spread and gray rocks are piled?Men are hard-hearted, and kind angels only Watch o'er the steps of a poor orphan child.Ye, distant and soft, the night-breeze is blowing, Clouds there are none, and clear starts beam mild;God, in His mercy, protection is showing, Comfort and hope to the poor orphan child.Ev'n should I fall o'er the broken bridge passing, Or stray in the marshes, by false lights beguiled,Still will my Father, with promise and blessing, Take to his bosom the poor orphan child.There is a thought that for strength should avail me; Thought both of shelter and kindred despoiled;Heaven is a home, and a rest will not fail me; God is a friend to the poor orphan child."
Author: Charlotte Brontë

Here are some tips from Dr. LaValle to reduce your exposure: 1. Limit drinking out of plastic containers, and when you do, drink only from containers that are free of bisphenol A, better known as BPA. 2. Do not microwave food in plastic containers or covered in plastic. 3. Avoid using personal care items such as face creams, cosmetics, shampoos, tampons, and toiletries that contain environmental estrogens and particularly phthalates. Phthalates are synthetic substances found in many plastics. They have estrogenic properties and are banned as a toxic substance in Europe."
Author: Daniel G. Amen

Death could scarce be bitterer.But if I would show the good that came of itI must talk about things other than the good."
Author: Dante Alighieri

Author: Eckhart Tolle
19. "I am glad," he said, "that I do not dwell in your country among such savage peoples. Here, in Caspak, men fight with men when they meet - men of different races - but their weapons are first for the slaying of beasts in the chase and defense. We do not fashion weapons solely for the killing of man as do your peoples. Your country must indeed be a savage country, from which you are fortunate to have escaped to the peace and security of Caspak."
Author: Edgar Rice Burroughs

Author: Gianluca Frangella
21. "Why are some of us, he wondered, unable to love success or power or great beauty? Because we feel unworthy of them, because we feel more at home with failure? He didn't believe that was the reason. Perhaps one wanted the right balance, just as Christ had, the legendary figure whom he would have liked to believe in. 'Come unto me all ye that travail are and heavy laden.' Young as the girl was at that August picnic she was heavily laden with her timidity and shame. Perhaps he had merely wanted her to feel that she was loved by someone and so he began to love her himself. It wasn't pity, any more than it had been pity when he fell in love with Sarah pregnant by another man. He was there to right the balance. That was all."
Author: Graham Greene
22. "La vie de l'avare est un constant exercice de la puissance humaine mise au service de la personnalite´. Il ne s'appuie que sur deux sentiments : l'amour-propre et l'inte´re^t ; mais l'inte´re^t e´tant en quelque sorte l'amour- propre solide et bien entendu, l'attestation continue d'une supe´riorite´ re´elle, l'amour-propre et l'inte´re^t sont deux parties d'un me^me tout, l'e´goi¨sme."
Author: Honoré De Balzac
23. "Les esprits qui ont le sentiment du sublime sont entraînés insensiblement vers les sentiments élevés de l'amitié, du mépris du monde, de l'éternité, par le calme et le silence d'une soirée d'été, alors que la lumière tremblante des étoiles perce les ombres de la nuit, et que la lune solitaire paraît à l'horizon. Le jour brillant inspire l'ardeur du travail et le sentiment de la joie. Le sublime émeut, le beau charme."
Author: Immanuel Kant
24. "Ben ucu ucuna görmüstüm onu. O kadar genç olmasina sasirmistim: Bir delikanliyi andiriyordu, sapasaglam, kazinmis ensesi, gergin ve bronz teni, kaygili bir sevincin egemen oldugu isiltili gözleriyle bir delikanliyi: Savas vardi, onun yarattigi savas ve o generallerle arabadaydi; yeni bir üniforma vardi üzerinde, en faal ve soluk soluga günlerini geçiriyordu, o yaz aksamlarinda hizla insanlarin kendisini tanidigi köylerden geçiyordu. Ve sanki bir oyun oynaniyormus gibi, yalnizca oyun aradaslari ariyordu kendine, hepsi bu."
Author: Italo Calvino

26. "She cut a small piece of the gravalax and put it on a piece of black bread, daintily spooned a bit of dill sauce onto it, and ate it like it was the last piece of food in the world. I tried to imitate her, eating so slowly, tasting the raw pink fish and the coarse, sour bread, salt and sugar around the rind, flavors and scents like colors on a palette, like the tones in music."
Author: Janet Fitch
27. "O amor é um estratagema inventado pelos homens para não terem de lavar a roupa."
Author: Joël Dicker
28. "Tek bir insanin yaptigi, sanki bütün insanlar tarafindan yapilmis gibidir. Bu nedenle cennet bahçesindeki söz dinlemezligin bütün insanligi kirletmesi haksizlik sayilmaz; gene bu nedenle tek bir Yahudi'nin çarmiha gerilmesinin insanligi kurtarmaya yetmesi de haksizlik sayilmaz. Belki de Schopenhauer hakliydi; ben baskalariyim, her insan bütün insanlardir. Shakespeare de neredeyse, zavalli John Vincent Moon'dur."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
29. "Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers."

32. "The impression made upon them by the first view of a camel equipped and loaded for the desert. Custom, so fatal to other novelties, affects this feeling but little. At the end of long journeys with caravans, after years of residence with the Bedawin, the Western-born, wherever they may be, will stop and wait the passing of the stately brute. The charm is not in the figure, which not even love can make beautiful; nor in the movement, the noiseless stepping, or the broad careen. As is the kindness of the sea to a ship, so that of the desert to its creature. It clothes him with all its mysteries;"
Author: Lew Wallace
33. "The division of the world which followed defined certain parts of the world as ‘nature', that is, as savage, uncontrolled and, therefore, open for exploitation and civilizing efforts… the process of naturalization' did not affect only the colonies as a whole and women of the working class the women of the bourgeoisie also were defined into nature as mere breeders and rearers of the heirs of the capitalist class. But in contrast to the African women who were seen as part of ‘savage' nature, the bourgeois women were seen as ‘domesticated'nature."
Author: Maria Mies
34. "His characters are ravaged, beaten. They walk through infernos and emerged charred doves."
Author: Marisha Pessl
35. "I dode vreme kad covek treba zauzeti stav koji nije ni bezbedan, ni 'mudar', ni popularan, ali ga mora zauzeti jer je ISPRAVAN!"
Author: Martin Luther King Jr.
36. "Agora, o pintor dissertava longamente acerca da composição: o que há de mais bonito nos sonhos, dizia, é o encontro improvável de seres e de coisas que não poderiam encontrar-se na vida corrente; num sonhos, um barco pode entrar por uma janela num quarto de dormir, uma mulher que já não está viva há vinte anos pode aparecer deitada numa cama e, contudo, ei-la a subir para o barco que se transforma acto contínuo em caixão e o caixão põe-se a flutuar por entre as margens floridas de um rio."
Author: Milan Kundera
37. "I took delight in hurling books across the room if I knew I would not be reading the second chapter. Then I'd go and pick them up again, because they are books, after all, and we are not savages."
Author: Neil Gaiman
38. "They looked like good people, but deep down they were pieces of shit. They often found they way into politics, and they talked about God, family values and country. They were the new cavaliers of the Catholic culture."

39. "Era uma vez um rapaz. Vivia numa aldeia que já não existe, numa casa que já não existe, na orla de um campo que já não existe, lugar de todas as descobertas e onde tudo era possível. Um pau podia ser uma espada. Uma pedra podia ser um diamante. Uma árvore um castelo.Era uma vez um rapaz que vivia numa casa do outro lado do campo onde vivia uma rapariga que já não existe. Inventavam mil jogos. Ela era a Rainha e ele o Rei. Na luz do Outono, o cabelo dela brilhava como uma coroa. Bebiam o mundo em pequenas mãos-cheias. Quando o céu escurecia, apartavam-se com folhas nos cabelos."
Author: Nicole Krauss
40. "That crown on her head is very heavy, that's why she is smiling like that, smiling like she just ate a whole bunch of unripe guavas. It's heavy because it's made of gold, Godknows says.

Author: NoViolet Bulawayo

Author: Richard Bach
44. "Innocent?" He was incensed at her suggestion he was somehow responsible for this mess. "I've done nothing wrong, I intend nothing wrong. I am innocent!""Half the evil in this world occurs while decent people stand by and do nothing wrong. It's not enough to refrain from evil, Trell. People have to attempt to do right, even if they believe they cannot succeed.""Even when it's stupid to try?" he asked with savage sarcasm."Especially then," she replied sweetly. "That's how it's done, Trell. You break your heart against this stony world. You fling yourself at it, on the side of good, and you do not ask the cost. That's how you do it."
Author: Robin Hobb
45. "Platão, perplexo diante da beleza, inventou um mito: imagine que, antes de nascer, a alma habitava um mundo encantado onde moravam todas as coisas belas do universo. A alma as contemplou, sentiu-se feliz, e alma e beleza se abraçaram, para sempre. Mas aí, quando nascemos neste mundo, a alma esquece de tudo. E ela fica toda cheia de buracos -- como um queijo suíço! --, em cada buraco mora a presença de uma ausência. A alma é o lugar onde as ausências estão presentes. E essas belezas ausentes se fazem sentir como uma tristeza inexplicável, uma saudade pura, sem objeto, uma vontade de chorar. Isso acontece frequentemente na hora do pôr-do-sol. Borger cita Browning: "Quando nos sentimos mais seguros então acontece algo: um pôr-do-sol, e outra vez estamos perdidos". O pôr-do-sol é um emissário do mundo encantado."
Author: Rubem Alves
46. "Patrick explained that your father is absent. What about your mother, dear?"Mother? Oh, she's in a dusty motel in California right now, cooling herself with a cold Schlitz in her cleavage."
Author: Ruta Sepetys
47. "What you did for me, Chaol," she tried again. "Not even with Cain, but when you—""I have to go," he interrupted, and half turned away."Chaol," she said, grabbing his hand and whirling him to face her. She only saw the haunted gleam in his eyes before she threw her arms around his neck and held him tightly. He straightened, but she crushed her body into his, even though it still aggravated her wounds to do so. Then, after a moment, his arms wrapped around her, keeping her close to him, so close that as she shut her eyes and breathed him in, she couldn't tell where he ended and she began.His breath was warm on her neck as he bent his head, resting his cheek against her hair. Her heart beat so quickly, and yet she felt utterly calm—as if she could have stayed there forever and not minded, stayed there forever and let the world fall apart around them. She pictured his fingers, pushing against that line of chalk, reaching for her despite the barrier between them."
Author: Sarah J. Maas
48. "I live in Rome and five minutes from my flat is a church where you can walk in and see this beautiful Caravaggio. Just the way this man uses dark paint: dark to create dark to create dark, the layering of the darkness in his work. I just race home: I want to create!"
Author: Taiye Selasi
49. "Moi, je voulais comprendre la guerre. Bien sûr, je voulais aussi la voir car je voulais la décrire, mais je me suis rendue compte que ceux qui me tiraient dessus depuis une rangée de palmiers, moi qui m'étais jeté la tête la première dans un fossé pour m'abriter, ces hommes étaient aussitôt devenus mes "ennemies". Mais étaient-ils mes "ennemis" ? Non. Si j'avais continué comme ça tout au long de la guerre, je ne l'aurais jamais comprise. (p. 120)"
Author: Tiziano Terzani
