I want a relationship with the Abba of Jesus, who is infinitely compassionate with my brokenness and at the same time an awesome, incomprehensible, and unwieldy Mystery."
Author: Brennan Manning
10. "Are not all lifelong friendships born at the moment when at last you meet another human being who has some inkling (but faint and uncertain even in the best) of that something which you were born desiring, and which, beneath the flux of other desires and in all the momentary silences between the louder passions, night and day, year by year, from childhood to old age, you are looking for, watching for, listening for? You have never had it. All the things that have ever deeply possessed your soul have been but hints of it -- tantalising glimpses, promises never quite fulfilled, echoes that died away just as they caught your ear. But if it should really become manifest -- if there ever came an echo that did not die away but swelled into the sound itself -- you would know it. Beyond all possibility of doubt you would say "Here at last is the thing I was made for."
Author: C.S. Lewis

Lì per lì, quello imbastisce una piccola conferenza sulle microscopiche nano-macchine che scorrono nelle vene di Aldous, sui benefici alla salute che comportano, compreso un considerevole allungamento della vita."
Author: Claudio Cordella
14. "These parvenu farmers clear the land by bushfires that smolder beneath the peat for many seasons, surfacing in dry spells to sow renewed calamity. The third blow to the Moriori was the whalers, now calling at Ocean Bay, Waitangi, Owenga & Te Whakaru in sizable numbers"
Author: David Mitchell
15. "Love is about cooperation, sharing and inclusion. It is about the elevation of each individual to a life neither suppressed nor exploited, but instead nourished to rise to its full potential--a life for its own sake and so that we may all benefit by the gift of that life."
Author: Doris Haddock
16. "Pertanyaan "Kapan pulang?" sebenarnya adalah isyarat kekhawatiran yang tersimpan di sudut hati seseorang. "Kapan pulang?" adalah pertanyaan sederhana untuk mengetahui kapan sebuah pertemuan akan mengakhiri jurang perpisahan. "Kapan pulang?" merupakan kepastian, bahwa perpisahan yang terjadi hanyalah sementara, bukan berlama-lama ataupun berabad-abad. -Mama kepada Bianca-"
Author: Dwitasari
17. "... ich kann kein Volk mir denken, das zerißner wäre, wie die Deutschen. Handwerker siehst du, aber keine Menschen, Priester, aber keine Menschen, Herrn und Knechte, Jungenudn gesetzte Leute, aber keine Menschen - ist das nicht wie ein Schlachtfeld, wo Hände und Arme und Gleider zerstückelt untereinander liegen ... ? Ein jeder treibt das Seine, wirst du sagen, und ich sage es auch. Nur muß er es mit ganzer Seele treiben, muß nicht jede Kraft in sich ersticken, wenn sie nicht gerade sich zu seinem Titel paßt ... und ist er in ein Fach gedrückt, wo gar der Geist nicht leben darf, so stoß ers mit Verachtung weg und lerne pflügen!"
Author: Friedrich Hölderlin
18. "?Kalganov ran back into the front hall, sat down in a corner, bent his head, covered his face with his hands, and began to cry. He sat like that and cried for a long time--cried as though he were still a little boy and not a man of twenty... 'What are these people, what sort of people can there be after this!' he kept exclaiming incoherently, in bitter dejection, almost in despair. At that moment he did not even want to live in the world. 'Is it worth it, is it worth it!' the grieved young man kept exclaiming."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
19. "His soul swayed in a vertigo of moral indecision. He had only to snap the thread of a rash vow made to a villainous society, and all his life could be as open and sunny as the square beneath him. He had, on the other other hand, only to keep his antiquated honour, and be delivered inch by inch into the power of this great enemy of mankind, whose very intellect was a torture-chamber. Whenever he looked down into the square he saw the comfortable policeman, a pillar of common sense and common order. Whenever he looked back at the breakfast-table he saw the President still quietly studying him with big, unbearable eyes."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
20. "Even Ben thought it was strange-Sage had said he'd be down there. Ben wasn't concerned, though. In fact, he looked a little giddy. "Maybe he decided not to come to Tokyo," he chirped. "Oh well, we'll do better with just the two of us."I loved Ben, but he was seriously transparent. "We need Sage to get the Elixir, though." Not that I cared about the Elixir at the moment. I was actually starting to worry. Where was Sage? Was he okay?"He says we need him," Ben scoffed. "I bet the dark lady will tell us everything we need.""Try his cell," I told Rayna.She pulled out her phone and dialed. "No answer.""Text him.""Maybe he just bailed," Ben said.Ben was just way too happy about this. I got it, but it was irritating."
Author: Hilary Duff

Author: J.K. Rowling
22. "I… What are you saying, Zsadist?" she stammered, even though she'd heard every word.He glanced back down at the pencil in his hand and then turned to the table. Flipping the spiral notebook to a new page, he bent way over and labored on top of the paper for quite a while. Then he ripped the sheet free.His hand was shaking as he held it out. "It's messy."Bella took the paper. In a child's uneven block letters there were three words: I LOVE YOUHer lips flattened tight as her eyes stung. The handwriting got wavy and then disappeared. "Maybe you can't read it," he said in a small voice. "I can do it over." She shook her head. "I can read it just fine. It's… beautiful.""I don't expect anything back. I mean… I know that you don't… feel that for me anymore. But I wanted you to know. It's important that you knew."
Author: J.R. Ward
23. "The King beneath the mountains,The King of carven stone,The lord of silver fountainsShall come into his own!His crown shall be upholden,His harp shall be restrung,His halls shall echo goldenTo songs of yore re-sung.The woods shall wave on mountains.And grass beneath the sun;His wealth shall flow in fountainsAnd the rivers golden run.The streams shall run in gladness,The lakes shall shine and burn,And sorrow fail and sadnessAt the Mountain-king's return!"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
24. "Olemnly he came forward and mounted the round gunrest. He faced about and blessed gravely thrice the tower, the surrounding land and the awaking mountains. Then, catching sight of Stephen Dedalus, he bent towards him and made rapid crosses in the air, gurgling in his throat and shaking his head. Stephen Dedalus, displeased and sleepy, leaned his arms on the top of the staircase and looked coldly at the shaking gurgling face that blessed him, equine in its length, and at the light untonsured hair, grained and hued like pale oak."
Author: James Joyce

31. "I trust you, Cash. I trust you."He grabs my wrist and presses his lips to the inside then pulls gently until I'm bent at the waist and my face is close to his."Come home with me. Please." I can feel his warm breath on my lips, they're so close. I lean forward to close the small gap, but he leans away. "Please," he repeats softly.I would never tell him, but he could ask me anything right now and I'd agree to it. Anything at all."Okay." As soon as the words leave my lips, his mouth is on mine."
Author: M. Leighton

33. "Defeat I can endure with cheerfulness, my lady. But betrayal is like taking the wind from my sails, or the earth from beneath my feet. It chills my spirits like a rainy day, and all I can do is draw the curtains and cry into my pillow."
Author: Margaret George
34. "If you're lucky, in some point in the future when you're in need of guidance or perhaps moral support, you may cross paths with a suitable mentor. Even luckier, you'll realize you had one in your life all along and you'll gain a new appreciation for how you benefited from that relationship. The luckiest relationship of all, of course, is a combination of the two. You've had help all along, and as the path widens or narrows, whatever the case may be, new and powerful influences will enter your life and aid your progress. In my experience, a mentor doesn't necessarily tell you what to do, but more importantly: tells you what they did or might do, then trusts you to draw your own conclusions and act accordingly. If you succeed, they'll take one step back and if you fail, they'll take one step closer. Whatever it is they teach you, pass it on."
Author: Michael J. Fox
35. "Falling in love: how does it work? Over the years we gather the odd clue, but nothing adds up. We'd like to think we have a picture of our future partner projected in our mind, all their qualities recorded as if on film, and we just search the planet for that person until we find them, sitting in Casablanca waiting to be recognised. But in reality our love lives are blown around by career and coincidence, not to mention lack of nerve on given occasions, and we never have respectable reasons for anything until we have to make them up afterwards for the benefit of our curious friends."
Author: Michel Faber
36. "Un bravo marmista conosce la materia...il suo talento, infatti, non consiste nell'inventare forme, bensi' nel rendere manifeste quelle che erano invisibili."
Author: Muriel Barbery
37. "However you must have sensed a lurking 'but' skulking beneath my happy, blithe, and chipper exterior. A minuscule vexation, like the teeniest lump of raw liver sticking to the inside of my boot."
Author: Neil Gaiman
38. "..Window panes that rattled under the lash of the wind for two months on end, rain that leaked beneath the doors, her husband out and drinking, electricity cut off and the radio shut down, the boredom, the quiet and incredible loneliness - Margaret Looney would remember when she first discovered love and wonder at how immense it must have been to be lasting so long."
Author: Niall Williams
39. "Ne dediniz? Gene de seviyorlar miymis beni? Iste beni bu incelikler öldürüyor. Batili amcalarin buldugu bu incelikler! Yalniz kendimi sevdigim halde, bunu baskalarina sevgi seklinde belirtmek suretiyle kendimi aldatmak ve ayni zamanda bir bakima onlarin daha gerçek sayilmasi gereken asklarini, bu aldatici askimin yaninda önemsiz görmekle, bir kere daha kisiligime duydugun aski ve vazgeçemedigim benligimi ortaya koymakla kendinisevengillerin birtürlügerçekleri göremedigiiçinbaskalarininsevgisinemuhtaçgiller - familyasina mi giriyormusum?"
Author: Oğuz Atay
40. "Los buenos artistas existen simplemente en su producción, y por consecuencia resultan completamente faltos de interés en sí mismos. Un gran poeta, un verdadero gran poeta, es el menos poético de los seres. Pero los poetas inferiores son absolutamente fascinantes. Cuanto peor riman, más pintorescos parecen. El solo hecho de haber publicado un libro de sonetos de segundo orden hace a un hombre completamente irresistible. Vive la poesía que no pudo escribir. Los otros escriben la poesía que no se atreven a realizar"
Author: Oscar Wilde
41. "To believe in explanations is good, because it means you may believe also that beneath the chaotic, mindless jumble of everything, beneath the horrible disjunction you feel at every moment between you and all you are not, there dwells in the universe a secret harmony, a coherence and rightness like a balanced equation that's out of reach for now but some day will reveal itself in its entirety."
Author: Paul Murray
42. "I'm pissed off because of all the fuckin' people who shut their eyes while others are victimized because it doesn't benefit them to get involved. It pissed me off that every-fuckin'-body is such a tough guy until a tough situation is actually present to them. Then they become crying little pussies blaming the world and everything it in."
Author: Reymundo Sanchez
43. "A sad fact, of course, about adult life is that you see the very things you'll never adapt to coming toward you on the horizon. You see them as the problems they are, you worry like hell about them, you make provisions, take precautions, fashion adjustments; you tell yourself you'll have to change your way of doing things. Only you don't. You can't. Somehow it's already too late. And maybe it's even worse than that: maybe the thing you see coming from far away is not the real thing, the thing that scares you, but its aftermath. And what you've feared will happen has already taken place. This is similar in spirit to the realization that all the great new advances of medical science will have no benefit for us at all, thought we cheer them on, hope a vaccine might be ready in time, think things could still get better. Only it's too late there too. And in that very way our life gets over before we know it. We miss it. And like the poet said: The ways we miss our lives are life."
Author: Richard Ford
44. "He lives out in Orchard Park. I mean, to be able to sit on the bench so patiently, for whatever part, and to be able to get up and do something, with such heroic competencies would be great."
Author: Robert Creeley
45. "When the snipe and the mussel struggle, the fisherman gets the benefit. Ancient Chinese saying"
Author: Robert Greene
46. "He finished tying the knot and looked me in the face and I felt my gaze fall from his eyes to his lips and back again. "Why are you giving it back to me?" I asked. He pressed his thumb to my bottom lip and I heard an intake of air. That was me, I thought, before my head started to spin. Then he bent his head and kissed me. Just lightly, for a short few seconds before drawing away again."
Author: Sarah Alderson
47. "Il piccolo elfo ebbe l'impressione di essere diventato meno orfano. Era una sensazione curiosa. Come se la solitudine fosse un muro di vetro che per la prima volta mostrava incrinature e crepe. Era l'ultimo di una stirpe distrutta, ma dal passato gli arrivava un po' dell'affetto che il presente gli negava. Le sue dita passavano e ripassavano sugli oggetti: erano stati fatti per lui; gli erano stati lasciati. Qualcuno gli aveva voluto bene mentre li faceva, mentre glieli lasciava. Sperò che Morte fosse un posto da dove il suo papà potesse vederlo."
Author: Silvana De Mari
48. "Ich dachte, daß ich ihn vor der Hochzeit noch und also nachdem ich ihn nur ein einziges Mal gesehen hatte, Gambetti beschrieben und geschildert habe. Als einen dicken, noch nicht vierzigjährigen Mann, der, weil er tagtäglich fetter wird, immer zu enge Kleidung trägt und durch die angegessene Fettleibigkeit Atembeschwerden hat, selbst wenn er spricht und daß sein Sprechen ein durch diese Fettleibigkeit erzwungenes Sprechen nur in ganz kurzen Sätzen ist, das sich längere Sätze nicht erlauben kann. Der Mann atmet geräuschvoll, habe ich zu Gambetti gesagt, und bleibt auch alle Augenblicke, wenn man mit ihm geht, stehen, dann zeigt er mit der ausgestreckten Hand auf irgendeinen Gegenstand und wenn keiner zum Herzeigen da ist, ganz einfach in irgendeine Richtung als interessante Landschaft, um von seiner Kurzatmigkeit abzulenken."
Author: Thomas Bernhard
49. "And in me too the wave rises. It swells; it arches its back. I am aware once more of a new desire, something rising beneath me like the proud horse whose rider first spurs and then pulls him back. What enemy do we now perceive advancing against us, you whom I ride now, as we stand pawing this stretch of pavement? It is death. Death is the enemy. It is death against whom I ride with my spear couched and my hair flying back like a young man's, like Percival's, when he galloped in India. I strike spurs into my horse. Against you I will fling myself, unvanquished and unyielding, O Death!"
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "Lucu, terkadang manusia tidak menyadari apa yang sesungguhnya mereka inginkan sebelum benar-benar kehilangan."
Author: Windry Ramadhina
