1. "No one stays the same, David. Everything you are is a direct result of something that's affected you in your past, whether it was horrible or wonderful -- no one has the right to destroy themselves because they can't deal with the pain. You have to learn from it. It's not over--the good in your life--it's not over until your dead."
Author: A.M. Hudson
2. "An impersonal generation will take the place of Nature's hideous system. In vast state incubators, rows upon rows of gravid bottles will supply the world with the population it requires.

Author: Aldous Huxley

He looked away, and Laurel could tell he'd been avoiding a conversation like this. "Well?" she insisted. "If you wanted it," he finally said. "If I wanted it?" He nodded. "I'm not allowed to ask. You would have to ask me." Her breath caught in her chest, and Tamani looked at her. "Why do you think David bothers me so much?" Laurel looked down at her lap. "I can't just storm in and proclaim my intentions. I can't 'steal' you away. I just have to wait and hope that, someday, you'll ask." "And if I don't?" Laurel said, her voice barley above a whisper. "Then I guess I'll wait forever."
Author: Aprilynne Pike

Ma se per qualche motivo deciderai di tornare da me, devi sapere che in questa fase della mia vita ho bisogno della tua disponibilità più completa e della tua capacità di comprensione più profonda. Ho bisogno che tu fluisca liberamente verso di me, senza alcun ostacolo esterno. Ne ho bisogno come dell'aria che respiro. Se non puoi donarmi tutto questo, non venire. Davvero: non venire. Perché probabilmente mi sono sbagliata sul tuo conto...(David Grossman, Che tu sia per me il coltello)"
Author: David Grossman
10. "David Levithan lives in the best of times and the worst of times, the age of wisdom and the age of foolishness, the epoch of belief and the epoch of incredulity, the season of Light, and the season of Darkness. He has endeavored in this Ghostly little book to raise the Ghost of an Idea which shall not put his readers out of humor with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with him. Whether he shall turn out to the be hero of his own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, time must show."
Author: David Levithan
11. "Amy hated--hated--the way the grown-ups her parents had surrounded themselves with were so quick to offer prayers and so low to actually do anything. Old women who barely left the house for anything but bingo and congratulated themselves on never drinking alcohol or saying dirty words, thinking God created humans to stay home and watch televangelists and just run out the clock until the day they die. Well, Amy figured you don't need more than five minutes on this planet to figure out that one thing we know about God--maybe the only thing--is that he favors those who act. David also believed that, through he didn't realize it."
Author: David Wong

13. "Perché stava giocando, ne ero certa. Quello non era amore, i diavoli non provavano amore, lo sapevano tutti. Eppure, non appena tutta quella visione svanì, e voltandomi potei riguardare l'aspetto umano di Azazael, nei suoi occhi intravidi questa volta una bagliore. Non era sovrannaturale, o forse sì, forse quello scintillio nello sguardo che possedevano tutte le persone innamorate alla vista del loro amore era quanto di più divino potesse esistere nel creato."
Author: Diletta Brizzi
14. "I like to sail. My son Caden and I are avid sailors."
Author: Doug Davidson
15. "I watched bulls bred to cows, watched mares foal, I saw life come from the egg and the multiplicative wonders of mudholes and ponds, the jell and slime of life shimmering in gravid expectation. Everywhere I looked, life sprang from something not life, insects unfolded from sacs on the surface of still waters and were instantly on prowl for their dinner, everything that came into being knew at once what to do and did it, unastonished that it was what it was, unimpressed by where it was, the great earth heaving up bloodied newborns from every pore, every cell, bearing the variousness of itself from every conceivable substance which it contained in itself, sprouting life that flew or waved in the wind or blew from the mountains or stuck to the damp black underside of rocks, or swam or suckled or bellowed or silently separated in two."
Author: E.L. Doctorow
16. "Les adultes-enfants m'ennuient, ce sont des cannibales. Ils ne sont propres qu'à se nourrir de la vitalité des autres. Ils ne se perçoivent pas. Et parce qu'ils ne se perçoivent pas, ils ne peuvent pas vivre, et ne sont rien d'autre qu'avides, du regard ou du sang de quelques autres."
Author: Fred Vargas
17. "A ciência é uma sucessão de hipóteses que se contradizem, de teorias que se contrapõem, de concepções caducas e de esperanças mortas. E a Ciência, tal como soterrou a Magia, poderá um dia ser morta e substituída por um modo de conhecimento superior.Vangloria-se de reduzir as fadigas e as infelicidades dos homens e, com a a ajuda proporcionada à indústria, multiplicou as necessidades e, portanto, o trabalho e a escravidão, aumentando com os conhecimentos inúteis e a vida mais insaciável, a nossa carga de dores.Pretende substituir-se ao sacerdote e não consegue responder às exigências mais desesperadas acerca do destino e da morte, pelo que os homens, após uma longa embriaguez de cientismo, regressam, pouco a pouco, às revelações da fé."
Author: Giovanni Papini
18. "It's as if I've never seen Jane before, never known her. With just an undervest on, she looks unbelievably thin. Arms no wider than the sticks of a bower. A collarbone protuding from the skin in all its detail. And with that one gesture, I learn the fundamental truth of her. When she takes off her sweater and, without thinking, hands it over to David to use as wool, I can see how Jane loves. And I know -with all my heart I know- that there is no protection in the world for someone who loves like that."
Author: Helen Humphreys

Author: John Connolly

Lydia was laughing so hard tears misted her eyes."

But I realize I am. I don't want you to put your arms around me and say it's all right, that you forgive me. I want you to be sure that you do, and my love for you will last as long as I live. I can see no lightness, no humour, no joke to make. I just hope that we will be able to go back to when we had laughter, and the world was coloured, not black and white and grey. I am so sorry for hurting you. I could inflict all kinds of pain on myself, but it would not take back any I gave to you. - David Power"

40. "Dyk mel ve zvyku pronášet sentence z vlastního kadlubu, které krášlil podvodnými, zpravidla biblickými zdroji. Už dávno pochopil, že v Cesku se za nejzazší projev inteligence považuje opakování toho, co už nekdo nekdy rekl. Kdysi, v dobách, kdy sbíral po parcích brouky, se ke svým sentencím hlásil („…jak já vždycky ríkám") a nikdy se mu nedostalo jiné reakce než rozpacitého úsmevu. Jednou ho napadlo dodat: „Kniha Rút, 4,6" – a hle, pohledy vukol zazárily, ženské uznale, mužské závistive. Od té doby tak cinil pokaždé. „Noc je predzvestí jitra. Leviticus 2, 10," pravil zvedaje se ze židle a opoušteje podnikový vecírek. „Kopej v písku a nalezneš sebe sama. Kazatel 17, 5," nabádal kolegyni v práci, na niž si delal zálusk. „Otec mocným hlasem volá, beda, syn jej neslyší. Gilgameš, zpev tretí," utešoval souseda, který si stežoval na chování pubescentního potomka."
Author: Patrik Ouředník
41. "As theologian David F. Wells states so powerfully, We have turned to a God that we can use rather than a God we must obey; we have turned to a God who will fulfill our needs rather than to a God before whom we must surrender our rights to ourselves. He is a God for us and for our satisfaction, and we have come to assume that it must be so in the church as well. And so we transform the God of mercy into a God who is at our mercy. We imagine that he is benign, that he will acquiesce as we toy with his reality and co-opt him in the promotion of our ventures and careers."
Author: R. Albert Mohler Jr.
