Author: Anne Lamott
2. "That's a spiritual lifestyle, being willing to admit that you don't know everything and that you were wrong about some things. It's about making a list of all the people you've harmed, either emotionally or physically or financially, and going back and making amends. That's a spiritual lifestyle. It's not a fluffy ethereal concept."
Author: Anthony Kiedis
3. "If a person measures his spiritual fulfillment in terms of cosmic visions, surpassing peace of mind, or ecstasy, then he is not likely to know much spiritual fulfillment.

Author: Arthur Miller

5. "What's the most horrible experience you can imagine? To me—it's being left, unarmed, in a sealed cell with a drooling beast of prey or a maniac who's had some disease that's eaten his brain out. You'd have nothing then but your voice—your voice and your thought. You'd scream to that creature why it should not touch you, you'd have the most eloquent words, the unanswerable words, you'd become the vessel of the absolute truth. And you'd see living eyes watching you and you'd know that the thing can't hear you, that it can't be reached, not reached, not in any way, yet it's breathing and moving there before you with a purpose of its own. That's horror. Well, that's what's hanging over the world, prowling somewhere through mankind, that same thing, something closed, mindless, utterly wanton, but something with an aim and a cunning of its own."
Author: Ayn Rand
6. "To disarm while being best armed, out of an elevation of sensibility—that is the means to real peace.…"
Author: Ben Macintyre
7. "I think I can understand that feeling about a housewife's work being like that of Sisyphus (who was the stone rolling gentleman). But it is surely in reality the most important work in the world. What do ships, railways, miners, cars, government etc exist for except that people may be fed, warmed, and safe in their own homes? As Dr. Johnson said, "To be happy at home is the end of all human endeavour". (1st to be happy to prepare for being happy in our own real home hereafter: 2nd in the meantime to be happy in our houses.) We wage war in order to have peace, we work in order to have leisure, we produce food in order to eat it. So your job is the one for which all others exist…"
Author: C.S. Lewis
8. "Livia made a fist and put it to her forehead. "Dad. Some people who should love me and should be here aren't. Like Mom."Her father blinked."Beckett shouldn't love anyone, but he does, and he knows he shouldn't be here, but he is. I'm asking you, please, let him stay. I know I'm not being fair." Livia took her father's hand. "And if you really can't do it, if you really have to take Beckett now, I won't be mad. I'll understand. Sometimes the right thing can seem so wrong, like it does in this moment. But really, Beckett won't hurt anyone here. Not today. I bet he isn't even armed."
Author: Debra Anastasia
9. "Vengeous scowled. 'As you can see,' he said, 'you are vastly outnumbered.'I usually am.'Your situation has become quite untenable.'It usually does.'You are within moments of being swarmed by these filthy creatures of undeath and torn apart in a maelstrom of pain and fury.'Skulduggery paused. 'Okay, that's a new one on me."
Author: Derek Landy
10. "What is it that allows human beings to see through each other's pretendings? For I understood quite clearly in that moment that she was anxious. Perhaps emotions have a smell or a taste; perhaps we transmit them unknowingly by vibrations in the air. Whatever the means, I knew just as surely that it was nothing about me in particular that alarmed her, but only the fact that I had come and was a stranger."
Author: Diane Setterfield
11. "She was shining a light on us, she was coming into being, endlessly being formed and reformed as the muscles in her face worked at smiling and speaking, as the electronic dots swarmed."
Author: Don DeLillo

Author: Edward Gorey
13. "Americans need never fear their government because of the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation."
Author: Gouverneur Morris
14. "At the deepest level people are madder than they want to believe. You will find that they fear being eaten, and are alarmed by their desire to devour others."
Author: Hanif Kureishi
15. "The face of the dead man was concealed, of course, our customs not being those of the south, where corpses are carried to the grave in open coffins, that they might – one last time before slipping into the pit – be warmed by the light of the sun."
Author: Jan Neruda
16. "Hell had become, over the years, a wearisome speculation. Even its proselytizers have neglected it, abandoning the poor, but serviceable, human allusion which the ecclesiastic fires of the Holy Office once had in this world: a temporal torment, of course, but one that was not unworthy, within its terrestrial limitations, of being a metaphor for the immortal, for the perfect pain without destruction that the objects of divine wrath will forever endure. Whether or not this hypothesis is satisfactoy, an increasing lassitude in the propaganda of the institution is indisputable. (Do not be alarmed; I use propaganda here not in its commercial but rather in its Catholic genealogy: a congregation of cardinals.)"
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
17. "Good to see a youngster who appreciates the importance of being......Well Armed. But...That's not how we play TAG......Where I come from.~Train Heartnet"
Author: Kentaro Yabuki
18. "I am a scholar and a pupil who has been lulled to sleep by the meagre fire of a mind too humble. I have been too much burned, and my injured mind has accumulated too much passion; for tormenting itself with the defending of our sex, my mind sighs, conscious of its obligation. For all things — those deeply rooted inside us as well as those outside us — are being laid at the door of our sex.In addition, I, who have always held virtue in high esteem and considered private things as secondary importance, shall wear down and exhaust my pen writing against those men who are garrulous and puffed up with false pride. I shall not fail to obstruct tenaciously their treacherous snares. And I shall strive a war of vengeance against the notorious abuse of those who fill everything with noise, since armed with such abuse, certain insane and infamous men bark and bare their teeth in vicious wrath at the republic of women, so worthy of veneration."
Author: Laura Cereta
19. "The prospect Smiler was a manic farmer. Few men I think can have been as unfortunate as he; for on the one hand he was a melancholic with a loathing for mankind, on the other, some paralysis had twisted his mouth into a permanent and radiant smile. So everyone he met, being warmed by his smile, would shout him a happy greeting. And beaming upon them with his sunny face he would curse them all to hell."
Author: Laurie Lee
20. "Illegal killings of elephants are being linked to organized crime and the funding of armed militia groups. Many consumers in Asia do not realize that by buying ivory, they are playing a role in the illegal wildlife trade and its serious consequences."
Author: Li Bingbing
21. "My mother repressed a shudder of apprehension, for, being more rapid in perception than my father, she grew alarmed on his account over things which only began to vex him a moment later. Whatever might cause him annoyance was first noticed by her, just as bad news of France is always known abroad sooner than among ourselves."
Author: Marcel Proust
22. "Among other evils which being unarmed brings you, it causes you to be despised."
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli
23. "A prince ought to have two fears one from within on account of his subjects the other from without on account of external powers. From the latter he is defended by being well armed and having good allies and if he is well armed he will have good friends and affairs will always remain quiet within when they are quiet without unless they should have been already disturbed by conspiracy and even should affairs outside be disturbed if he has carried out his preparations and has lived as I have said as long as he does not despair he will resist every attack."
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli
24. "Tell you what: you can be Glammera the vampire hunter. I'll stick with being manly and heavily armed."
Author: Rachel Caine
25. "What pretty oracles nature yields us on this text, in the face and behaviour of children, babes, and even brutes! That divided and rebel mind, that distrust of a sentiment because our arithmetic has computed the strength and means opposed to our purpose, these have not. Their mind being whole, their eye is as yet unconquered, and when we look in their faces, we are disconcerted. Infancy conforms to nobody: all conform to it, so that one babe commonly makes four or five out of the adults who prattle and play to it. So God has armed youth and puberty and manhood no less with its own piquancy and charm, and made it enviable and gracious and its claims not to be put by, if it will stand by itself. Do not think the youth has no force, because he cannot speak to you and me."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
26. "Oh, God in heaven, kill me now…" Rachel groaned. "I hate going to see Mrak. I always feel awkward going back to Velik Tor. After being a Scorpion for so long, after everything Oron's told us about Mrak's past…" she shook her head darkly. "I don't know if I'll be able to resist the temptation to perforate his bowels."Notak looked back down at the letter. "Post script," he read aloud. "Rachel, please leave Mrak alive and unharmed. We still need him, unfortunately, no matter how tempting it is to perforate his bowels." "You made that up, he did not say that!"Notak handed her the letter, pointing. "Right there at the bottom."Rachel squinted at the writing. "Faul."
Author: S.G. Night
27. "[You for] the fragrant-blossomed Muses' lovely gifts[be zealous,] girls, [and the] clear melodious lyre:[but my once tender] body old age now[has seized;] my hair's turned [white] instead of dark;my heart's grown heavy, my knees will not support me,that once on a time were fleet for the dance as fawns.This state I oft bemoan; but what's to do?Not to grow old, being human, there's no way.Tithonus once, the tale was, rose-armed Dawn,love-smitten, carried off to the world's end,handsome and young then, yet in time grey ageo'ertook him, husband of immortal wife."
Author: Sappho
28. "I tend to be one of those people who takes great pride in calling it like I see it. I say things like, "I'm not being grumpy or negative or pessimistic. I'm just keeping it real." "I'm not complaining. I'm just calling it like I see it." But people armed with a spirit of gratitude know that often it is what you call it. So what if, instead of calling it like we see it, we began to call it like God says it?"
Author: Steven Furtick
29. "Having him hold me like that was the only good thing out of it all, having him hold me and being right there with me. I just wished he could have held me harder and tighter and made the bad feelings, the dirty feelings, go away. But I don't think you can hold a person that tight, so tight that she's in your heart, way inside your skin, being cleaned and warmed by your blood. (11)"
Author: Susan Shaw
30. "I didn't know what exhausted me emotionally until that moment, and I realized that the experience of being a soldier, with unlimited license for excess, excessive violence, excessive sex, was a blueprint for self-destruction. Because then I began to wake up to the idea that manhood, as passed onto me by my father, my scoutmaster, my gym instructor, my army sergeant, that vision of manhood was a blueprint for self-destruction and a lie, and that was a burden that I was no longer able to carry. It was too difficult for me to be that hard. I said, "OK, Ammon, I will try that." He said, "You came into the world armed to the teeth. With an arsenal of weapons, weapons of privilege, economic privilege, sexual privilege, racial privilege. You want to be a pacifist, you're not just going to have to give up guns, knives, clubs, hard, angry words, you are going to have lay down the weapons of privilege and go into the world completely disarmed."
Author: Utah Phillips
31. "It was as if the boy had already divined what his senses and intellect had not encompassed yet: that doomed wilderness whose edges were being constantly and punily gnawed at by men with plows and axes who feared it because it was wilderness, men myriad and nameless even to one another in the land where the old bear had earned a name, and through which ran not even a mortal beast but an anachronism indomitable and invincible out of an old dead time, a phantom, epitome and apotheosis of the old wild life which the little puny humans swarmed and hacked at in fury of abhorrence and fear like pygmies about the ankles of a drowsing elephant;--the old bear, solitary, indomitable, and alone; widowered childless and absolved of mortality--old Priam reft of his old wife and outlived all his sons."
Author: William Faulkner
32. "All these people who scream about Kashmir being an armed camp are in fact responsible for keeping it that way."
Author: Zubin Mehta
