Author: Bernard Cornwell
105. "These actions have arcane names like braking, retting, swingling (or scutching), and hackling or heckling, but essentially they involve pounding, stripping, soaking, and otherwise separating the pliant inner fiber, or bast, from its woodier stem. It is striking to think that when we heckle a speaker today we use a term that recalls the preparation of flax from the early Middle Ages."
Author: Bill Bryson

You have to feed them the truth wrapped in a piece of boloney, hold their snout shut, and stroke their throats.

Author: Bill Maher
107. "La regla general que hemos establecido bastante bien entre ellos es que en todas las experiencias que pueden hacerles mejores o más felices sólo los hechos físicos son "reales", mientras que los elementos espirituales son "subjetivos"; en todas las experiencias que pueden desanimarles o corromperles, los elementos espirituales son la realidad fundamental, e ignorarlos es ser escapista.Escrutopo"

109. "It's me," he said, and cleared his throat. "I could understand if you didn't believe me, but I swear on the Angel, Iz, it's me." Alec said nothing, but his grip on Jace's hand tightened. "You don't need to swear," he said, and with his free hand touched the parabatai rune near his collarbone. "I know. I can feel it. I don't feel like I'm missing a part of me anymore.""I felt it too." Jace took a ragged breath. "Something missing. I felt it, even with Sebastian, but I didn't know what it was I was missing. But it was you. My parabatai."
Author: Cassandra Clare

Author: Ceyhun Yilmaz
111. "Sento ancora la follia scorrermi dentro, ma ancora non ho scritto le parole che avrei voluto, la tigre mi è rimasta sulla schiena. Morirò con addosso quella figlia di puttana, ma almeno le ho dato battaglia. E se fra voi c'è qualcuno che si sente abbastanza matto da voler diventare scrittore, gli consiglio va' avanti, sputa in un occhio al sole, schiaccia quei tasti, è la migliore pazzia che possa esserci, i secoli chiedono aiuto, la specie aspira spasmodicamente alla luce, e all'azzardo e alle risate. Regalateglieli. Ci sono abbastanza parole per noi tutti."
Author: Charles Bukowski
112. "Because it is the triumph of a lack of planning –both for good and bad. It's chaos –and whether you say that with a gasp of despair or glee or both is up to you. Whereas Paris (certainly in the centre) is the success of a single overarching monomaniacal topographic vision, London is a chaotic patchwork of history, architecture, style, as disorganised as any dream, and like any dream possessing an underlying logic, but one that we can't quite make sense of, though we know it's there. A shoved-together city cobbled from centuries of distinct aesthetics disrespectfully clotted in a magnificent triumph of architectural philistinism. A city of jingoist sculptures, concrete caryatids, ugly ugly ugly financial bombast, reconfiguration. A city full of parks and gardens, which have always been magic places, one of the greenest cities in the world, though it's a very dirty shade of green –and what sort of grimy dryads does London throw up? You tell me."
Author: China Miéville
113. "It was a spell, thrown by Sebastian Born. Pretty fce, evil disposition."
Author: Chloe Neill
114. "Winter denial: therein lay the key to California Schadenfreude--the secret joy that the rest of the country feels at the misfortune of California. The country said: "Look at them, with their fitness and their tans, their beaches and their movie stars, their Silicon Valley and silicone breasts, their orange bridge and their palm trees. God, I hate those smug, sunshiny bastards!" Because if you're up to your navel in a snowdrift in Ohio, nothing warms your heart like the sight of California on fire. If you're shoveling silt out of your basement in the Fargo flood zone, nothing brightens your day like watching a Malibu mansion tumbling down a cliff into the sea. And if a tornado just peppered the land around your Oklahoma town with random trailer trash and redneck nuggets, then you can find a quantum of solace in the fact that the earth actually opened up in the San Fernando Valley and swallowed a whole caravan of commuting SUVs."
Author: Christopher Moore
115. "Oggi è il compleanno di mamma"."L'hai già chiamata?":"Non ancora"..."Chiamala e basta. Ti farà sentire una merda. Ma è quello che fanno sempre le madri".Non era per niente quello che facevano sempre le madri. Lei non sarebbe diventata quel tipo di madre."
Author: Christos Tsiolkas
116. "You lying lunatic bastard. They're going to kill you.""I love you too," he murmured. "Go find Seph."
Author: Cinda Williams Chima
117. "The days and the light feel like brief moments of torture, put here to remind us of what we don't have any more. Joy is instantaneous, that, is the wonder of joy. Misery and suffering sneak up on someone like a bastard. They drip into your brain slowly, over time. Until one morning you wake up crying and you have no idea why."
Author: Craig Stone
118. "We got back to my house to find it ransacked. It was difficult to tell because I'm not the world's greatest housekeeper myself, but by the time I was in the kitchen I knew they had been here: I don't normally keep the oven open. I whipped out the gun and prowled around the house, finding it empty. Amy asked what they were looking for. I dodged the question by pointing out what a pity it was they tossed the place because it was immaculate before they got here and that it was too bad she didn't get to see it when it was clean. I went to the kitchen and ran water over my bleeding knuckles. "Look," Amy said, from behind me. "They threw laundry all over your floor in there." "Yeah. And they wore the clothes first, the bastards."
Author: David Wong
119. "[...] perché anche lui, come tanti, nel profondo sapeva che quello che soprattutto fa la persona che ami è occupare spazio, stare al mondo: diventare il tuo spazio e il tuo mondo. E il peggio che ti può capitare, quando ti abitui a vivere in un mondo ridotto ad una persona soltanto, è di pensare di avere abbastanza mondo per essere felice, addirittura diventarlo e così raccontarti che nel resto del mondo, tutto quell'altro mondo che non è lei, non vuoi neanche più andarci; infatti non ci vai, e dopo un po' ti senti persino fiero di aver smesso di frequentarlo, quel mondo così vasto, anche se poi quando viene a girare dalle tue parti o lo vedi dalla finestra ti sale un po' di magone, e te ne torni dentro mordendoti le labbra."
Author: Diego De Silva
120. "Ormai conosceva tutto di lei, anche i graffi sulle mani, eppure quando la cercava col pensiero non c'era verso di prenderla. Era come quei personaggi dei sogni che ti dicono due o tre parole alludendo a una verità che ti guarda, e quando ti avvicini per sapere si allontanano appena, ma abbastanza per non farsi raggiungere."
Author: Diego De Silva
121. "I, of course, took the opportunity to interpose with pigheaded Wallace pride, 'I am not English, you ignorant Jerry bastard, I am a SCOT."
Author: Elizabeth Wein
122. "So through a world of piety I made my way to Sebastian."
Author: Evelyn Waugh
123. "Suddenly, by the sort of violent effort with which one wrenches one's head away from the pillow in a nightmare, Winston succeeded in transferring his hatred from the face on the screen to the dark-haired girl behind him. Vivid, beautiful hallucinations flashed through his mind. He would flog her to death with a rubber truncheon. He would tie her naked to a stake and shoot her full of arrows like Saint Sebastian. He would ravish her and cut her throat at the moment of climax. Better than before, moreover, he realized why it was that he hated her. He hated her because she was young and pretty and sexless, because he wanted to go to bed with her and would never do so, because round her sweet supple waist, which seemed to ask you to encircle it with your arm, there was only the odious scarlet sash, aggressive symbol of chastity."
Author: George Orwell
124. "I think back to those days after the Bastille fell, the Mercure Nationale run from the back of the shop, that little Louise sticking her well-bred nose in the air and flouncing off to bawl out their printer—and you know, he was a good lad, François. I'd say, ‘Go and do this, this, this, go and tie some bricks to your boots and jump in the Seine,' and he‘d"— Danton touched an imaginary forelock—‘right away, Georges-Jacques, and do you need any shopping while I'm out?' Jesus, what a way to end up. When you see him, tell him I'd be obliged if he forgets he knows me."
Author: Hilary Mantel
125. "Adalara, gemilerin binde bir ugradigi, insan ayaginin binde bir bastigi adalara benzer Ece Ayhan. Bir de Ortaçag kalelerine, satolarina, o surlar, hendekler, kuleler, mazgallar, asma köprülerle çevrili, nerden ve nasil gidilecegi belli olmayan, bu yüzden de yanina pek yaklasilmayan ancak karsidan görülen, bakilan Ortaçag kalelerine, satolarina. Gerisinde yol iz birakmamistir çünkü, görünmek yetmis gibidir. Hem niçin biraksin? Kendisi de öyle gelmemis midir buraya. Kimsenin elini tutmadan, kimseye yaslanmadan, yalniz kendi külünü yaka yaka."
Author: Ilhan Berk
126. "It's your duty as my best friend to be outraged with me." "I'm outraged!" I snarled. "That bastard!" "Thank you," Andrea said."
Author: Ilona Andrews
127. "É muito fácil tratar com sarcasmo uma causa nobre. Basta querer."
Author: Isaac Asimov
128. "Passiamo l'esistenza alla ricerca di una soluzione, di quacosa che ci consoli, che ci dia felicità e scacci tutti i mali. Alcuni intraprendono una strada lunga e ardua, e magari non trovano niente, a parte l'abbozzo di uno scopo, di una liberazione, o una forma di appagamento nella ricerca stessa, quanto a noi, ammiriamo nella loro perseveranza, ma ci è già abbastanza difficile accontentarci di esistere e prendiamo l'elisir invece di cercare, e continuiamo a chiederci qual è la via più breve per la felicità, e troviamo la risposta in Dio, nella scienza, nella grappa, nell'elisir che viene dalla Cina."
Author: Jón Kalman Stefánsson
129. "Ci sono parole che hanno il potere di cambiare il mondo, capaci di consolarci e di asciugare le nostre lacrime. Parole che sono palle di fucile, come altre sono note di violino. Ci sono parole che possono sciogliere il ghiaccio che ci stringe il cuore, e poi si possono anche inviare in aiuto come squadre di soccorso quando i giorni sono avversi e noi forse non siamo nè vivi né morti. Ma le parole da sole non bastano e finiamo a perderci nelle lande desolate della vita se non abbiamo nient'altro che una penna cui aggrapparci."
Author: Jón Kalman Stefánsson
130. "Tal como a experiência da comunicação tem abundantemente demonstrado, o poder de mobilização da palavra oral, no imediato, em nada inferior ao da palavra escrita, e mesmo, num primeiro momento, talvez mais apta que ela a arrebanhar vontades e multidões, é dotada de um alcance histórico bastante mais limitado, devido a que, com as repetições do discurso, se lhe fatiga com rapidez o fôlego e se lhe desviam os propósitos. Não se vê outra razão para que as leis que nos regem estejam todas escritas."
Author: José Saramago
131. "Now that I've come to terms with the fact that the bastard is going to affect me whether I like it or not, he's even hotter than before."
Author: K.A. Tucker

Author: Kinley MacGregor
133. "Why, you may ask, didn't we have a cow tonight? No one would sell Bayard one. He had the brilliant idea of telling the farmers why he wanted the cow. The God-fearing folk would sell their cows to be eaten, but not for raising zombies. Prejudiced bastards."
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton
134. "Racconterò di tempi difficili, tempi in cui la vita delle persone valeva assai poco e la lotta per la sopravvivenza era tutto. Mi piacerebbe poter dire che l'umanità ha imparato la lezione. Ma gli esseri umani di rado guardano al passato, finché non commettono di nuovo gli stessi errori. E quando si diventa abbastanza saggi per dispensare consigli, si è anche troppo vecchi per essere ascoltati. Motivo per cui la razza umana resterà per sempre imperfetta e allo stesso tempo meravigliosa."
Author: Lucinda Riley
135. "Sam Roth, you bastard," Cole said. There was admiration in his voice, which probably meant I'd made a poor decision."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
136. "Chantal se siente a salvo, porque la voz de Jean-Marc es la voz del amor, la voz cuya existencia había olvidado en aquellos momentos de desconcierto, la voz del amor que la acaricia y la relaja, pero para la que todavía no está preparada; como si esa voz llegara de lejos, de demasiado lejos; tendrá que escucharla aún durante bastante tiempo para creer en ella."
Author: Milan Kundera
137. "It symbolises strength."Bastien snorts. "It certainly doesn't provide any."
Author: Nenia Campbell
138. "Annemle dükkan vitrinlerinin önünden geçerken, ona insanlarin neden tekme atip camlari kirmadigini sordugumu animsiyorum. Annem de, insanlarin birlikte yasayabilmelerini saglayan, kelimelere dökülmeyen bir takim toplumsal davranis kurallarinin varligindan söz etmisti. Bunu duydugumda, her seyin bizden öncekiler tarafindan belirlenmesinden ve yol haritasinin çikarildigi bir dünyada yasamaktan dolayi kendimi sinirlandirilmis hissetmistim. Yikici güdülerimi bastirip, yaratici olanlara yogunlasmak üzere kendimi egitmistim. Yine de, kurallardan nefret eden tarafim büsbütün ölmüs degildi."
Author: Patti Smith

141. "You see Carter, people are two things: greedy and cruel. So we have a perfect set-up here. The greed part - a kid pays a buck for a chance to win a hundred. Plus fifty boxes of chocolates. The cruel part - watching two guys hitting each other, maybe hurting each other, while they're safe in the bleachers. That's why it works, Carter, because we're all bastards."
Author: Robert Cormier
142. "Guards! Take the bastard out and beat him! (Styxx)Tell me something, brother. What angers you most about me? The fact I share your face or the fact I know exactly what your best friend wants to do to you…and how often? Good to see you again, Lord Dorus, especially clothed. (Acheron)"

But don't be afraid, mademoiselle, I fasten the windows likeBastilles. Women alone ! I'm sure that's enough to make us shudder! Just imagine! To see men come into the roomat night and say Hush ! to you and set themselves about cutting your throat. It isn't so much the dying, peopledie, that's all right, we know very well that we have to die, but it is the horror of having such people touch yhaving such people touch you. And then their knives, they must cut badly ! 0 God !"

Author: William Shakespeare
150. "Il sole del pomeriggio batteva senza sosta la superficie del mare, e tutta la baia er a un'unica, stupenda distesa di fulgore. All'orizzonte campeggiavano alcune nuvole estive, ferme nel silenzio, immergendo parzialmente in acqua le forme sontuose, funeree, profetiche. I muscoli delle nuvole erano pallidi come alabastro."
Author: Yukio Mishima
