1. "For us to deem a work of architecture elegant, it is hence not enough that it look simple: we must feel that the simplicity it displays has been hard won, that it flows from the resolution of demanding technical or natural predicament. Thus we call the Shaker staircase in Pleasant Hill elegant because we know--without ever having constructed one ourselves--that a staircase is a site complexity, and that combinations of treads, risers and banisters rarely approach the sober intelligibility of the Sharkers' work. We deem a modern Swiss house elegant because we not how seamlessly its windows have been joined to their concrete walls, and how neatly the usual clutter of construction has been resolved away. We admire starkly simple works that we intuit would, without immense effort, have appeared very complicated. (p 209)"
Author: Alain De Botton
2. "- Strachliwego masz chlopa, Maryska. - Edek nalal kieliszek i podal mezczyznie. - Pij! Na odwage!- Jaki on mój. Tak przychodze... - powiedziala kobieta i obciagnela bluzke na baniastych piersiach.- A do mnie bys przyszla? - Edek wetknal kciuki za pasek i odchylil sie z krzeslem do tylu. - Ja bojaca nie jestem. - Lysnela srebrnym zebem i wypuscila pogardliwy klab dymu."
Author: Andrzej Stasiuk
3. "What subjectivism is in the realm of ethics, collectivism is in the realm of politics. Just as the notion that "anything I do is right because I chose to do it," is not a moral principle, but a negation of morality--so the notion that "anything society does is right because society chose to do it," is not a moral principle, but a negation of moral principles an the banishment of morality from social issues."
Author: Ayn Rand
4. "If there was some way of knowing which boys were likely to turn out to be decent men, boys that could love us back as passionately as we felt we could love them, then we could banish the likelihood of divorce and unhappiness to a statistically unlikely outcome."
Author: Belinda Jeffrey
5. "All questions of right to one side, I have never been able to banish the queasy inner suspicion that Israel just did not look, or feel, either permanent or sustainable. I felt this when sitting in the old Ottoman courtyards of Jerusalem, and I felt it even more when I saw the hideous 'Fort Condo' settlements that had been thrown up around the city in order to give the opposite impression. If the statelet was only based on a narrow strip of the Mediterranean littoral (god having apparently ordered Moses to lead the Jews to one of the very few parts of the region with absolutely no oil at all), that would be bad enough. But in addition, it involved roosting on top of an ever-growing population that did not welcome the newcomers."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
6. "The rich, the poor, the high professor and the prophane [sic], seem all to be infected with this grievous disorder, so that the love of our neighbor seems to be quite banished, the love of self and opinions so far prevails."
Author: Christopher Marshall
7. "Experiences that we remember intrusively, despite desperately wanting to banish them from our minds, are closely linked to, and sometimes threaten, our perceptions of who we are and who we would like to be."
Author: Daniel L. Schacter
8. "It seemed that for every evil they defeated, worse took its place, but Vaughn banished the thought that this all might be a cruel game, a hoax played on the… ''No! I know what true Goodness, true Life, true Love is. Besides, this is too miserable to be a game…unless demons…NO! Besides, even if I was some kind of pawn, well, then this game piece would rebel!"
Author: Darryl Steven Markowitz
9. "Since the 1970S, financial innova­tions such as the securitisation of mortgage debt and the spreading of investment risks through the creation of derivative markets, all tacitly (and now, as we see, actually) backed by state power, have permitted a huge flow of excess liquidity into all facets of urbanisa­tion and built environment construction worldwide."
Author: David Harvey
10. "Killing depends on circumstances, as you'd expect, whether it's a cold, planned murder, or a hot death in a fight, or inspired by honor or a more shameful motive. However many times you kill, though, it's the first that matters. It's a man's first blood that banishes him from the world of the ordinary."
Author: David Mitchell
11. "Cole had made this commitment to save Beckett from hell. So he had to keep it, no matter how endlessly his soul cried in the corner of the church, begging and reaching for Kyle. At that moment he'd built a wall between her soul and his. Confusion turned to anger, which turned to panic as Kyle tried desperately to bring him back, to reconnect.She tried to kiss the truth out of him, but he turned his head and held her at bay. She fell to her knees, but he just shook his head. His future was predetermined. Even if banishing this newborn love sliced his heart in half, it had to be done."
Author: Debra Anastasia
12. "The wilderness should be preserved for political reasons. We may need it someday not only as a refuge from excessive industrialism but also as a refuge from authoritarian government, from political oppression. Grand Canyon, Big Bend, Yellowstone, and the High Sierras may be required to function as bases for guerrilla warfare against tyranny...The value of wilderness, on the other hand, as a base for resistance to centralized domination is demonstrated by recent history. In Budapest and Santo Domingo, for example, popular revolts were easily and quickly crushed because an urbanized environment gives the advantage to the power with technological equipment. But in Cuba, Algeria, and Vietnam the revolutionaries, operating in mountain, desert, and jungle hinterlands with the active or tacit support of a thinly dispersed population, have been able to overcome or at least fight to a draw official establishment forces equipped with all of the terrible weapons of twentieth century militarism."
Author: Edward Abbey
13. "Daca-mi place atîta corespondenta lui Dostoievski e pentru ca acolo nu e vorba decît de boala si de bani, unice subiecte <>. Tot restul nu e decît înflorituri si talmes-balmes."
Author: Emil Cioran
14. "I'm nobody! Who are you?Are you nobody, too?Then there's a pair of us -- don't tell!They'd banish us, you know.How dreary to be somebody!How public, like a frogTo tell your name the livelong dayTo an admiring bog!"
Author: Emily Dickinson
15. "Absences can also make one forget. Absence dulls the memory and banishes those who are precious from the mind."
Author: F. Sionil José
16. "Albania does not feel alone. It is part of the Partnership for Peace structures in NATO, and it will do what it can within that."
Author: Fatos Nano
17. "Albania, Macedonia and Greece have managed to create a good partnership in the south of the Continent and are making progress in blocking the spread of the conflict. But any spillover could destroy this European-oriented partnership and create problems for the European Union countries themselves."
Author: Fatos Nano
18. "El campode olivosse abre y se cierracomo un abanico.Sobre el olivarhay un cielo hundidoy una lluvia oscurade luceros fríos.Tiembla junco y penumbraa la orilla del río.Se riza el aire gris.Los olivos,están cargadosde gritos.Una bandadade pájaros cautivos,que mueven sus larguísimascolas en lo sombrío."
Author: Federico García Lorca
19. "The more formidable the contradiction between inexhaustible life-joy and inevitable fate, the greater the longing which reveals itself in the kingdom of poetry and in the self-created world of dreams hopes to banish the dark power of reality. The gods enjoy eternal youth, and the search for the means of securing it was one of the occupations of the heroes of mythology and the sages, as it was of real adventurers in the middle ages and more recent times. . . . But the fountain of youth has not been found, and can not be found if it is sought in any particular spot on the earth. Yet it is no fable, no dream-picture; it requires no adept to find it: it streams forth inexhaustible in all living nature."
Author: Ferdinand Cohn
20. "Welcome Beauty, banish fear."
Author: Francesca Lia Block

Author: Frederic William Farrar

Author: Geoffrey West
23. "Abandonment of slavery is also the banishment of the chimera of security. The world will not change overnight, and liberation will not happen unless individual women agree to be outcasts, eccentrics, perverts, and whatever the powers-that-be choose to call them."
Author: Germaine Greer
24. "Learn to reverence night and to put away the vulgar fear of it, for, with the banishment of night from the experience of man, there vanishes as well a religious emotion, a poetic mood, which gives depth to the adventure of humanity."
Author: Henry Beston
25. "A description of Zaira as it is today should contain all Zaira's past. The city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls."
Author: Italo Calvino
26. "Mrs. Weston's friends were all made happy by her safety; and if the satisfaction of her well-doing could be increased to Emma, it was by knowing her to be the mother of a little girl. She had been decided in wishing for a Miss Weston. She would not acknowledge that it was with any view of making a match for her, hereafter, with either of Isabella's sons; but she was convinced that a daughter would suit both father and mother best. It would be a great comfort to Mr. Weston, as he grew older— and even Mr. Weston might be growing older ten years hence—to have his fireside enlivened by the sports and the nonsense, the freaks and the fancies of a child never banished from home; and Mrs. Weston— no one could doubt that a daughter would be most to her; and it would be quite a pity that any one who so well knew how to teach, should not have their powers in exercise again."
Author: Jane Austen
27. "THE WITCH.[dancing].O I shall lose my wits, I fear,Do I, again, see Squire Satan here!MEPHISTOPHELES. Woman, the name offends my ear!THE WITCH. Why so? What has it done to you?MEPHISTOPHELES. It has long since to fable-books been banished;But men are none the better for it; true,The wicked one, but not the wicked ones, has vanished."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
28. "Aku lebih senang memilih opsi tidak menyembunyikan apa pun dari pasanganku meskipun harus berkonflik selama beberapa saat dengannya karena masalah itu, daripada harus menyembunyikan sesuatu yang akan membebaniku seumur hidup."
Author: Karla M. Nashar
29. "In the name of God, impure souls of the living dead shall be banished into eternal damnation. Amen."
Author: Kohta Hirano
30. "In urbanization, you think big because you are thinking decades ahead."
Author: Kushal Pal Singh
31. "And even these ((the common hill fairy, the standard elf of folk-lore) are in danger of being banished into the limbo of forgetfulness by the quite artificial fairy of juvenile literary commerce, with gauzy wing and skirts reminiscent of the ballet. It has always seemed to me extraordinary that literature has been able to create wings where none were before, for our native fairies are as wingless as ourselves. But for such an innovation the Elizabethan poets and playwrights were probably responsible - a topic which we must consider in another chapter."
Author: Lewis Spence
32. "Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons  attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot."
Author: Mark Twain
33. "Of course I didn't think I'd heard him correctly. Why would he have told me something so important now, so casually, in the middle of a street fair?Before I could stop myself, I blurted out the first thing I thought."Just one?"The look he gave me was shattering.Given everything I knew about him, though, I'd expected him to have killed a man.It was the fact that his having taken a single life had resulted in his banishment to the Underworld for all eternity that I found so astonishing."I had no idea," he said, with a dry smile, "that you were so bloodthirsty, Pierce. Should we try to find you one of those pirate costumes?"
Author: Meg Cabot
34. "Slaying dragons, melting witches, and banishing demons is all fun and games until someone loses a sidekick—then it's personal. The bad guy isn't just the "bad guy" anymore, he's the BAD GUY!"
Author: Michael J. Sullivan
35. "When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind."
Author: Michel De Montaigne
36. "In an antique city-state, or a modern municipality, shame is the penalty for the violation of ethics—making things more symmetric. Banishment and exile, or, worse, ostracism were severe penalties—people did not move around voluntarily and considered uprooting a horrible calamity. In larger organisms like the mega holy nation-state, with a smaller role for face-to-face encounters, and social roots, shame ceases to fulfill its duty of disciplinarian."
Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
37. "The only way to banish temptation is to give in to it," the saying went."
Author: Nikki Sex
38. "Na licu je uvijek nosila dobro uvježbani smiješak, tajanstven, zagonetan, smiješak umjesto krinke, smiješak koji ju je cuvao kao plasticni kolut neplivaca."
Author: Nura Bazdulj Hubijar
39. "Unless there is a strong sense of place there is no travel writing, but it need not come from topographical description; dialogue can also convey a sense of place. Even so, I insist, the traveler invents the place. Feeling compelled to comment on my travel books, people say to me, "I went there"---China, India, the Pacific, Albania-- "and it wasn't like that." I say, "Because I am not you."
Author: Paul Theroux
40. "The rosy hearth, the lamplight's narrow beam, The meditation that is rather dream, With looks that lose themselves in cherished looks; The hour of steaming tea and banished books; The sweetness of the evening at an end, The dear fatigue, and right to rest attained, And worshipped expectation of the night,— Oh, all these things, in unrelenting flight, My dream pursues through all the vain delays, Impatient of the weeks, mad at the days!"
Author: Paul Verlaine
41. "I caught myself thinking about falling in love with someone who I hoped was out there right now thinking about the possibility of me, but I quickly banished the notion. It was that kind of thinking that landed me in this situation to begin with. Hope can ruin you."
Author: Perry Moore
42. "Becoming a modern society is about industrialization, urbanization, and rising levels of literacy, education, and wealth. The qualities that make a society Western, in contrast, are special: the classical legacy, Christianity, the separation of church and state, the rule of law, civil society."
Author: Samuel P. Huntington
43. "Once you have rid yourself of the affliction there, though, every change of scene will become a pleasure. You may be banished to the ends of the earth, and yet in whatever outlandish corner of the world you may find yourself stationed, you will find that place, whatever it may be like, a hospitable home. Where you arrive does not matter so much as what sort of person you are when you arrive there."
Author: Seneca
44. "I think you just complimented me," said Jane. "You should take better care next time."The music had started, the couples had begun a promenade, but Mr. Nobley paused to hold Jane's arm and whisper, "Jane Erstwhile, if I never had to speak with another human being but you, I would die a happy man. I would that these people, the music, the food and foolishness all disappeared and left us alone. I would never tire of looking at you or listening to you." He took a breath. "There. That compliment was on purpose. I swear I will never idly compliment you again."Jane's mouth was dry. All she could think to say was, "But... but surely you wouldn't banish all the food."He considered, then nodded once. "Right. We will keep the food. We will have a picnic."And he spun her into the middle of the dance."
Author: Shannon Hale
45. "I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world."[As quoted in Plutarch's Of Banishment]"
Author: Socrates
46. "I count it as an absolute certainty that in paradise, everyone naps. A nap is a perfect pleasure and it's useful, too. It splits the day into two halves, making each half more manageable and enjoyable. How much easier it is to work in the morning if we know we have a nap to look forward to after lunch; and how much more pleasant the late afternoon and evening become after a little sleep. If you know there is a nap to come later in the day, then you can banish forever that terrible sense of doom one feels at 9 A.M. with eight hours of straight toil ahead. Not only that, but a nap can offer a glimpse into a twilight nether world where gods play and dreams happen."
Author: Tom Hodgkinson
47. "Henceforth the crisis of urbanism is all the more concretely a social and political one, even though today no force born of traditional politics is any longer capable of dealing with it. Medico-sociological banalities on the 'pathology of housing projects,' the emotional isolation of people who must live in them, or the development of certain extreme reactions of rejection, chiefly among youth, simply betray the fact that modern capitalism, the bureaucratic society of consumption, is here and there beginning to shape its own setting. This society, with its new towns, is building the terrain that accurately represents it, combining the conditions most suitable for its proper functioning, while at the same time translating in space, in the clear language of organization of everyday life, its fundamental principle of alienation and constraint. It is likewise here that the new aspects of its crisis will be manifested with the greatest clarity."
Author: Tom McDonough
48. "If you have a painting in you, paint. If you have a song to sing, sing. Don't judge your creation. Just create it. Banish doubt and fear and step out of your own way if you have to. Write if you're a writer and invent if you're an inventor. Do what you were born to do. Only then will you know a remarkable life."
Author: Toni Sorenson
49. "Absence from those we love is self from self - a deadly banishment."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "Die Welt ist nirgends außer diesen Mauern;Nur Fegefeuer, Qual, die Hölle selbst.Von hier verbannt, ist aus der Welt verbannt,Und solcher Bann ist Tod: Drum gibst du ihmDen falschen Namen. - Nennst du Tod Verbannung,Enthauptest du mit goldnem Beile michUnd lächelst zu dem Streich, der mich ermordet.There is no world without Verona walls,But purgatory, torture, hell itself.Hence banishèd is banished from the world,And world's exile is death. Then "banishèd"Is death mistermed. Calling death "banishèd",Thou cuttest my head off with a golden axeAnd smilest upon the stroke that murders me.Romeo: Act III, Scene 3"
Author: William Shakespeare
