Author: Abraham Lincoln

In cazul in care prin munca si eforturi deosebite reusim s-o izgonim sub aceasta forma si infatisare, suferinta se transforma, fiind in continuare prezenta, raportata la virsta si tinind seama de factorul intimplare, sub forma instinctului sexual, geloziei, pasiunii, invidiei, urii, fricii, bolii, zgirceniei etc."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
11. "Both vitamin pills and vegetables are loaded with essential nutrients, but not in the same combinations. Spinach is a good source of both vitamin C and iron. As it happens, vitamin C boosts iron absorption, allowing the body to take in more of it than if the mineral were introduced alone. When I first started studying nutrition, I became fascinated with these coincidences, realizing of course they're not coincidences. Human bodies and their complex digestive chemistry evolved over millenia in response to all the different foods--mostly plants--they raised or gathered from the land surrounding them. They may have died young from snakebite or blunt trauma, but they did not have diet-related illnesses like heart disease and Type II diabetes that are prevalent in our society now, even in some young adults and children. [from an entry by Barbara Kingsolver's daughter Camille]"
Author: Barbara Kingsolver

Author: Daniel Dennett

15. "No salvation comes from exhumed gods; we must penetrate deeper into substance. If I take a fossil, say, a trilobite, in my hand (marvelously preserved specimens are found in the quarries at the foot of the Casbah), I am transfixed by the impact of mathematical harmony. Purpose and beauty, as fresh as on the first day, are still seamlessly united in a medal engraved by a master's hand. The bios must have discovered the secret of tripartition in this primordial crab. Tripartition then frequently recurs, even without any natural kinship; figures, in transversal symmetry, dwell in the triptych.How many millions of years ago might this creature have animated an ocean that no longer exists? I hold its impression, a seal of imperishable beauty, in my hand. Some day, this seal, too, will decay or else burn out in cosmic conflagrations of the future. The matrix that formed it remains concealed in and operative from the law, untouched by death or fire."
Author: Ernst Jünger
16. "I'm glad you said that, my sneaky fox, because I fell hard for you. What I mean is...I don't think I'll ever be satisfied, not till I've stripped you down to your skivvies...not till I've eaten you up like a cookie, from the first bite, down to the last crumb. What I mean is, that core part of you that you've stashed deep inside. Now, it's too late to pussy out and wash your hands of this, Ewon Jung."
Author: Hajin Yoo
17. "No performer should attempt to bite off red-hot iron unless he has a good set of teeth."
Author: Harry Houdini
18. "Inceldiginde, çesitli sebeplerle delindigi de olur uykunun. Ne bileyim, bazen zihnimizdeki sivri uçlu bir hatira deler onu; bazen henüz hazmedemedigimiz bir sözün acisi, bazen kolu bacagi aklimizin disinda kalan bir düsünce yahut bir duygu, bazen de etrafimizda olup biten, bizim fark edemedigimiz meçhul bir sey deler. Iste o vakit delinen yerden içerisi görünmez ama disarisi görünür. Hakikat oradan gerçekte oldugu gibi görünmez tabii; uykunun sisi yüzünden, kendisinin biraz berisinde yahut gerisinde görünür."
Author: Hasan Ali Toptas

Author: Horace
22. "Psychic change, as Todorov has recognized, subverted the genre in another way, by revoking the cultural taboos, the social censorship, that had prohibited the overt treatment of psychosexual themes, which then found covert expression in the supernatural tale. 'There is no need today to resort to the devil [or to posthumous reverie] in order to speak of excessive sexual desire, and none to resort to vampires in order to designate the attraction exerted by corpses: psychoanalysis, and the literature which is directly or indirectly inspired by it, deal with these matters in undisguised terms. The themes of fantastic literature have become, literally, the very themes of the psychological investigations of the last fifty years."
Author: Howard Kerr

Author: Jonathan Stroud
26. "No, my discovery was sex: of sex, by sex, fo r sex. This new-uncovered country, prohibited by the fascism of sensitivity, a land where I could celebrate the death of my former self, where the pain of nostalgia could so easily be made to blend into obscurity amidst the overwhelming joy of the moment. Nira/Sussa"
Author: Julian Darius
27. "You could ask me to teach you.""Huh?" This night is getting weird in a hurry. "Teach me like you're teaching a class or something? What are you going to call it: ‘You Too Can Be a Sociopath 101'?""It would be more like a graduate-level class." I start to snicker. His sense of humour sneaks up on you. Then I remember who's talking and bite it off."
Author: Karen Marie Moning
28. "Time overlaps itself. A breath breathed from a passing breeze is not the whole wind, neither is it just the last of what has passed and the first of what will come, but is more--let me see--more like a single point plucked on a single strand of a vast spider web of winds, setting the whole scene atingle. That way; it overlaps...As prehistoric ferns grow from bathtub planters. As a shiny new ax, taking a swing at somebody's next year's split-level pinewood pad, bites all the way to the Civil War. As proposed highways break down through the stacked strata of centuries."
Author: Ken Kesey

It feels like the county fair has inhabited my mind-- complete with sketchy rides, carnies, and sugar-amped kids crying over lost balloons. So loud and disorienting. I want it to pack up and move on to the next town. I want my mind to be an open grassy field again with crickets and dandelions."
Author: Laura Munson
31. "With a dreamy sigh, I prop my chin on my fists. "Who knew that one day I'd be on a date with the lead singer from a famous boy band?"He scowls. "Infinite Gray was not a boy band.""Were there any girls in the band?""No.""That makes you a boy band.""It made us an all-male rock group."I bite back my smile. He's so cute when he's irritated. "Right, like 'N Sync."He winces. "Not like 'N Sync. Jesus, watch where you hurl those things. Words hurt, Maggie."
Author: Lexi Ryan
32. "I found that for me, the bottom line was that God was creation itself. I was praying to whatever caused things to exist. I thought that it also inhabited those things. For me, God was both the prerequisite for existence and its animating, incarnating element."
Author: Margaret D. McGee
33. "I loved sliding into him as he lay on his back so I could watch his face while we moved together. On those nights I could coax him out of the harsh world and its problems into a safe place inhabited by just the two of us. For a brief time, my arms really were strong enough to protect him. Nothing else had ever made me feel so powerful or righteous. Some people say gay sex is wrong because it has no purpose.

Evlendikten sonra duyulan ask da biter elbette, ama onun yerini mutluluk alir. Buna ragmen bazi aceleci budalalar evlenmeden önce âsik olup yana yana bütün aski tüketirler. Niye? Çünkü hayatta en büyük amaci ask sanarlar."
Author: Orhan Pamuk

I heard about a guy that almost got killed that way."By geese?"Yeah, there was a whole flock of them coming after him. All hissing and cackling and stabbing at his ankles with their big ol' beaks.

You are the smart one, but you are not ready. You can read all its words. Even the African words. But you will not know what Achebe is saying. It is a bad thing to bite into a hard fruit with little teeth. You will say bad things about the fruit when the problem is your teeth. I want you to read this book. I want you to know Things Fall Apart. Fourteen is a good age to find Chinua Achebe. Nzila. Your Mother.P.S. For now you are eleven. Be eleven."

Je romprai notre société quand bon me semblera"
Author: Seneca
48. "Matar slowly approached the coffee and picked it up carefully, like it might bite him. He  removed the lid and sniffed. "It's not poisoned," I said. "What are you? You conjure things from nowhere." "Perhaps I'm an afrit, a genie. Perhaps I'm an angel." Cox watched this exchange with interest. "Perhaps you are Shaitan," said Matar. I raised my eyebrows and Cox obligingly said, "Satan." I smiled a smile that didn't touch my eyes. The blood drained from Matar's face. "Perhaps," I  said. "Welcome to hell."
