Only the best, the best and the strongest. Henry, my love, the wanderer, the artist, the faithless one who has loved me so well. Believe me, nothing has changed in me toward you except my courage. I cannot walk with one love ever. My head is strong, my head, but to walk, to walk into love I need miracles, the miracles of excess, and white heat, and two-ness! Lie here, breathing into my hair, over my neck. No hurt will come from me. No criticalness, no judgment. I bear you in my womb."
Author: Anaïs Nin

Author: Antonio Machado

Author: Arthur Herman

12. "To be a full-blooded hillbilly was to be a living koan. Half of you wanted to be dignified and half of you couldn't tolerate any restraint. You could see it in the regional art and hear it in the music. Wood carving with chainsaws. Cloggers who danced up a storm with the lower half of their bodies, but held the upper half perfectly still and stared off into the distance stone-faced. Or a group of bluegrass musicians who'd be playing the most raucous tunes imaginable, looking around at each other with bemused expressions that seemed to say where's all that racket comin from?Phoebe believed that nearly all the adult males everywhere were pretty much the same way. Most of them could manage to keep the top half of themselves under a semblance of control, but the bottom half tended to run wild. As she continued to descend the trail she couldn't help but think that most men were mentally ill below the waist."
Author: Carolyn Jourdan
13. "If this was The Lord of the Rings and I had a smart British voice like Cate Blanchett, I could tell you the background of the events of that fall in a really suspenseful way. And you'd be straining to hear the rest."
Author: Charlaine Harris
14. "Mijail me agarra del pelo, y es tal el dolor que me saltan las lágrimas. Me arrastra por el pasillo mientras yo trato en vano de aferrarme a algo, lo que sea. Llegamos a una puerta la abre, y justo antes de empujarme dentro, reparo en el letrero: es el baño turco.Tropiezo por entre la oscuridad y el calor, y caigo de rodillas y manos contra un suelo de baldosas blancas y verdes. El vapor del baño todavía empaña el aire, y siento como si me hubieran arrojado a una nube de niebla. No puedo ver, no puedo respirar. La luz principal proviene del pasillo, y el cuerpo de Mijail se recorta contra ella cuando entra y cierra la puerta tras sí. Espero que me pegue, o me viole, o me mate.No espero el lobo."
Author: Claudia Gray
15. "Some cultural phenomena bear a striking resemblance to the cells of cell biology, actively preserving themselves in their social environments, finding the nutrients they need and fending off the causes of their dissolution."
Author: Daniel Dennett
16. "Mais c'est, plus quotidiennement, le refuge du livre contre le crépitement de la pluie, le silencieux éblouissement des pages contre la cadence du métro, le roman planqué dans le tiroir de la secrétaire, la petite lecture du prof quand planchent ses élèves, et l'élève de fond de classe lisant en douce, en attendant de rendre une copie blanche..."
Author: Daniel Pennac
17. "Dreams! in their vivid coloring of life, As in that fleeting, shadowy, misty strife Of semblance with reality, which brings To the delirious eye, more lovely things Of Paradise and Love- and all our own! Than young Hope in his sunniest hour hath known."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
18. "My letters seeking a job, though truthful, diminished the full truth. Face would blanch if the facts had been complete: "Dear Sir," I thought. "Do you have a position for a journeyman burglar, con man, forger and car thief; also with experience as armed robber, pimp, card cheat and several other things. I smoked marijuana at twelve (in the 40's) and shot heroin at sixteen. I have no experience with LSD and methedrine. They came to popularity since my imprisonment. I've buggered pretty young boys and feminine homosexuals (but only when locked up away from women). In the idiom of jails, prisons and gutters (some plush gutters) I'm a motherfucker! Not literally, for I don't remember my mother. In my world the term, used as I used it, is a boast of being hell on wheels, outrageously unpredictable, a virtuoso of crime. Of course by being a motherfucker in that world I'm a piece of garbage in yours. Do you have a job?"
Author: Edward Bunker
19. "Como dice Blanchot, la esencia de la literatura nunca está ya aquí, siempre hay que encontrarla o inventarla de nuevo. Así vengo yo trabajando en estas notas, buscando e inventando, prescindiendo de que existen unas reglas de juego de la literatura. Vengo yo trabajando en estas notas de forma un tanto despreocupada o anárquica, de un modo que me recuerda a veces la respuesta que dio el gran torero Belmonte cuando, en una entrevista, le requirieron que hablara sobre su toreo. "¡Si no sé! -contestó-. Palabra que no sé. Yo no sé las reglas, ni creo en las reglas. Yo siento el toreo, y sin fijarme en las reglas lo ejecuto a mi modo.""Quien afirme a la literatura en sí misma, no afirma nada. Quien la busca, sólo busca lo que se escapa, quien la encuentra, sólo encuentra lo que está aquí o, cosa peor, más allá de la literatura. Por eso, finalmente, cada libro persigue la no-literatura como la esencia de lo que quiere y quisiera apasionadamente descubrir."
Author: Enrique Vila Matas
20. "It all started in Michigan. My dad got a job in Michigan, so we all moved up there from St. Louis. I kind of hung out in the summer and had nothing to do, so I sort of got into acting. And then I was going to Grand Blanc High, doing the acting thing and hoping it would pan out."
Author: Evan Peters
21. "Now the relation which, in the sphere of nature, being and semblance or sensation bear to one another in this antithesis, is the same as that which in ethics exists between good and pleasure or feeling."
Author: Friedrich Schleiermacher
22. "... what we say or do is unimportant; it is merely semblance, beyond which our real life lies concealed... We know this better than we can prove, but in order to prove it we have to express it, and on the path to speech the essential somehow gets lost."
Author: Hermann Bahr
23. "If it's December 1941 in Casablanca, what time is it in New York?"
Author: Howard E. Koch
24. "La memoria imprime en blanco y negro, los grises se pierden por el camino."
Author: Isabel Allende
25. "Ah, hell.His peripheral vision was working far too well tonight.His slut of a cousin, his cocksucking, suit-wearing, Montblanc-up-the-ass cousin Saxton the Magnificent, was standing next to the queen, looking like a combination of Cary Grant and some model in a goddamn cologne ad.Not that Qhuinn was bitter.Because the guy was sharing Blay's bed.Nah.Nope. Not at all.The Cocksucker-With a wince, he thought maybe he should switch that insult to something a little farther away from what the two of them ...God, he couldn't even go there. Not if he wanted to breathe."
Author: J.R. Ward
26. "I sit and I listen to John cry and I wish there was something I could do to help him. I sit and I listen and I wish there was some way I could make it better. There is no hope for John, no hope at all. He could go to five hundred Clinics and spend ten years working the Twelve Steps and it wouldn't make a bit of fucking difference. He has been broken beyond repair, wounded beyond the point of healing, abused beyond the point of recovery. He will never know happiness or joy, security, or normalcy. He will never know pleasure, satisfaction, serenity, clarity, peace of mind or any semblance of sanity. He will never know or trust love. You poor, sick, sad Motherfucker. You will never know. I'm sorry."
Author: James Frey
27. "Their resemblance in good principles and good sense, in disposition and manner of thinking, would probably have been sufficient to unite them in friendship, without any other attraction; but their being in love with two sisters, and two sisters fond of each other, made that mutual regard inevitable and immediate, which might otherwise have waited the effect of time and judgment."
Author: Jane Austen
28. "Mais comme mes regards tombaient sur le bloc de feuilles blanches, je fus saisi par son aspect et je restai, la plume en l'air, à contempler ce papier éblouissant : comme il était dur et voyant, comme il était présent. Il n'y avait rien en lui que du présent. Les lettres que je venais d'y tracer n'étaient pas encore sèches et déjà elles ne m'appartenaient plus."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
29. "Africans in the United States must remember that the slave ships brought no West Indians, no Caribbeans, no Jamaicans or Trinidadians or Barbadians to this hemisphere. The slave ships brought only African people and most of us took the semblance of nationality from the places where slave ships dropped us off."
Author: John Henrik Clarke
30. "Ruth thought of a novel as a great, untidy house, a disorderly mansion; her job was to make the place fit to live in, to give it at least the semblance of order. Only when she wrote was she unafraid."
Author: John Irving
31. "I pretend not to teach, but to inquire; and therefore cannot but confess here again,–that external and internal sensation are the only passages I can find of knowledge to the understanding. These alone, as far as I can discover, are the windows by which light is let into this DARK ROOM. For, methinks, the understanding is not much unlike a closet wholly shut from light, with only some little openings left, to let in external visible resemblances, or ideas of things without: which, would they but stay there, and lie so orderly as to be found upon occasion, it would very much resemble the understanding of a man, in reference to all objects of sight, and the ideas of them."
Author: John Locke
32. "McCandless read and reread The Call of the Wild, White Fang, "To Build a Fire," "An Odyssey of the North," "The Wit of Porportuk." He was so enthralled by these tales, however, that he seemed to forget they were works of fiction, constructions of the imagination that had more to do with London's romantic sensibilities than with the actualities of life in the subarctic wilderness. McCandless conveniently overlooked the fact that London himself had spent just a single winter in the North and that he'd died by his own hand on his California estate at the age of forty, a fatuous drunk, obese and pathetic, maintaining a sedentary existence that bore scant resemblance to the ideals he espoused in print."
Author: Jon Krakauer
33. "I am not afraid if people think Matt LeBlanc in 'Episodes' is who I am - my friends and family know who I am."
Author: Matt LeBlanc
34. "It's a wonderful time when you sit down around the table for dinner and discuss life. No matter where you are, it gives the semblance of normalcy to my crazy world."
Author: Melina Kanakaredes
35. "First he sympathized with Cuba, then with China, and when the cruelty of their regimes began to appall him, he resigned himself with a sigh to a sea of words with no weight and no resemblance to life."
Author: Milan Kundera
36. "It was like being in a car with the gas pedal slammed down to the floor and nothing to do but hold on and pretend to have some semblance of control. But control was something I'd lost a long time ago."
Author: Nic Sheff
37. "Violent death erase[s] more than the semblance of life."
Author: P.D. James
38. "Juntos tú y yo, amor mío, sellamos el silencio, mientras destruye el mar sus constantes estatuas y derrumba sus torres de arrebato y blancura,porque en la trama de estos tejidos invisibles del agua desbocada, de la incesante arena, sostenemos la única y acosada ternura."
Author: Pablo Neruda
39. "I was trying to land an 18-year-old strapping first baseman from Blanco, Texas, population 200. His name was Willie Upshaw. It turned out there were only three scouts who knew about Willie - Dave Yocum and I working for the Yankees, and Al LaMacchia from the Atlanta Braves."
Author: Pat Gillick
40. "I stood surrounded by naked women not one of them bearing even the remotest resemblance to a centerfold. We had large thighs and round bellies small breasts and breasts that had fed babies full figures and thin ones dark skin and light muscles and fat. And each was beautiful in her own unique way. Laughing and full of light the radiance shone forth from within."
Author: Phyllis Curott
41. "I think that if a real princess was lost in this modern world and she could be whatever she wanted, she would be a musician,' Blanche said slowly. 'A violinist, or a harpist. That would be the only place where she could find solace for her lost kingdom."
Author: Regina Doman
42. "I loved watching classics such as 'Casablanca' and goofball comedies such as 'How To Murder Your Wife' on WGN-TV."
Author: Richard Roeper
43. "When you wrote it didn't matter if hysteria sometimes came up in your face and voice (unless, of course, you let it find its way into your "literary voice") because writing was done in merciful privacy and silence. Even if you were partly out of your mind it might turn out to be all right: you could try for control even harder than Blanche Dubois was said to have tried, and with luck you could still bring off a sense of order and sanity on the page for the reader. Reading, after all, was a thing done in privacy and silence too."
Author: Richard Yates
44. "Resumir en una mirada la virgen ausencia disperta en esta soledad y, como se corta, para recuerdo de un lugar, uno de esos mágicos nenúfares cerrados que de súbito surgen envolviendo en el hueco de su blancura una nada formada de sueños intactos, de la ventura que no llegará, y de mi aliento contenido por el temor de una aparición, partir con él: tácitamente, desentrañando poco a poco sin choque, romper ilusión, sin que el crepitar de la visible pompa de espuma enroscada a mi huida no arroje a los pies de nadie que sobrevenga la semejanza transparente del rapto de mi flor ideal."
Author: Stéphane Mallarmé
45. "Your Plan and the stuff that comes out of my asshole bear a suspicious resemblance to each other."
Author: Stephen King
46. "Stanley:Delicate piece she is.Stella:She is. She was. You didn't know Blanche as a girl. Nobody, nobody, was tender and trusting as she was. But people like you abused her, and forced her to change."
Author: Tennessee Williams
47. "So successfully have we disguised from ourselves the intensity of our own feelings, the sensibility of our own hearts, that plays in the tragic tradition have begun to seem untrue. For a couple of hours we may surrender ourselves to a world of fiercely illuminated values in conflict, but when the stage is covered and the auditorium lighted, almost immediately there is a recoil of disbelief. "Well, well!" we say as we shuffle back up the aisle, while the play dwindles behind us with the sudden perspective of an early Chirico painting. By the time we have arrived at Sardi's, if not as soon as we pass beneath the marquee, we have convinced ourselves once more that life has as little resemblance to the curiously stirring and meaningful occurrences on the stage as a jingle has to an elegy of Rilke."
Author: Tennessee Williams
48. "Justice based purely on laws is about as accurate as a portrait created out of large low-resolution color pixels.If you stand back far enough it looks good.Come any closer and the glaring approximations overtake all semblance of the original.Justice should be viewable under the microscope, not from a telescope.And for that it needs to be based not on law but on truth."
Author: Vera Nazarian
49. "We live in the midst of a gloomy society. Success; that is the lesson which falls drop by drop from the slope of corruption.Be it said in passing, that success is a very hideous thing. Its false resemblance to merit deceives men. For the masses, success has almost the same profile as supremacy. Success, that Menaechmus of talent, has one dupe,--history."
Author: Victor Hugo
50. "Blanching the cloves removes the harsh and bitter bite of raw garlic."
Author: Yotam Ottolenghi

Today's Quote

Uno se cruza a veces con gente que, en voz alta y fuerte, presume de haberse privado de tal o cual delicia durante veinticinco años. También conocemos a fantásticos idiotas que se alaban por el hecho de no haber escuchado jamás música, por no haber abierto nunca un libro o no haber ido nunca al cine. También están los que esperan suscitar admiración a causa de su absoluta castidad. Alguna vanidad tienen que sacar de todo eso: es la única alegría que tendrán en la vida."
