1. "I to je zapravo sustina proslavljanja Dana sv. Valentina:san o ljubavi. Zivot bi zaista bio gorak kada se san nikada ne bi ostvario ili kada nasa najvaznija zivotna iskustva ljubavi - storge, pragma, ludus, agape - ne bi bila dovoljno trajna i cvsta da nas spasu kad nas zahvati oluja erosa i manije - donoseci nam blazenstvo i ostavljajuci pustos za sobom."
Author: A.C. Grayling
2. "To those who fought World War II, it was plain enough that Allied bombs were killing huge numbers of German civilians, that Churchill was fighting to preserve imperialism as well as democracy, and that the bulk of the dying in Europe was being done by the Red Army at the service of Stalin. It is only in retrospect that we begin to simplify experience into myth — because we need stories to live by, because we want to honor our ancestors and our country instead of doubting them. In this way, a necessary but terrible war is simplified into a "good war," and we start to feel shy or guilty at any reminder of the moral compromises and outright betrayals that are inseparable from every combat. The best history writing reverses this process, restoring complexity to our sense of the past."
Author: Adam Kirsch

Author: Andy Paula

Author: Chris Hadfield
13. "Now is as good a time as ever to revisit the history of the Crusades, or the sorry history of partition in Kashmir, or the woes of the Chechens and Kosovars. But the bombers of Manhattan represent fascism with an Islamic face, and there's no point in any euphemism about it. What they abominate about 'the West,' to put it in a phrase, is not what Western liberals don't like and can't defend about their own system, but what they do like about it and must defend: its emancipated women, its scientific inquiry, its separation of religion from the state. Loose talk about chickens coming home to roost is the moral equivalent of the hateful garbage emitted by Falwell and Robertson, and exhibits about the same intellectual content."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
14. "Charlie had Sophie strapped to his chest like a terrorist baby bomb when he came down the back steps. She had just gotten to the point where she could hold up her head, so he had strapped her in face-out so she could look around. The way her arms and legs waved around as Charlie walked, she looked as if she was skydiving and using a skinny nerd as a parachute."
Author: Christopher Moore
15. "Just who has imposed on the suffering human race poison gas, barbed wire, high explosives, experiments in eugenics, the formula for zyklon b, heavy artillery, pseudo-scientific justifications for mass murder, cluster bombs, attack submarines, napalm, intercontinental missiles , military space platforms and nuclear weapons? If memory serves it was not the Vatican."
Author: David Berlinski
16. "Harry's suspension of disbelief blew completely out the window.You're giving me a time machine to treat my sleep disorder.You're giving me a TIME MACHINE to treat my SLEEP DISORDER.YOU'RE GIVING ME A TIME MACHINE IN ORDER TO TREAT MY SLEEP DISORDER."Ehehehehhheheh..." Harry's mouth said. He was now holding the necklace away from him as though it were a live bomb. Well, no, not as if it were a live bomb, that didn't begin to describe the severity of the situation. Harry held the necklace away from him as though it were a time machine."
Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
17. "Once you are a victim of a bombing, you enter a risk group to which they will not sell insurance."
Author: Ernst Zundel
18. "Vsako dejanje, misel in obcutek spodbudi namen in ta namen je vzrok, ki obstaja kot vzrok s posledico. Ce smo soudeleženi v vzroku, ni mogoce, da ne bi bili soudeleženi tudi v posledici. Na ta najglobji nacin smo odgovorni za vsako svoje dejanje, misel in obcutek, kar pomeni, za vsak svoj namen. Mi sami bomo deležni sadu vsakega svojega namena. Zato je pametno, da se zacnemo zavedati mnogih namenov, ki dajejo sporocila našim izkušnjam, da razvrstimo, kateri nameni ustvarjajo katere posledice, in izbiramo svoje namene glede na posledice, ki jih želimo ustvarjati."
Author: Gary Zukav
19. "A Novilíngua diferia da maior parte das outras línguas porque o seu vocabulário ia diminuindo em vez de aumentar todos os anos. Cada redução era um ganho, pois quanto menor a área de escolha, menor a tentação de pensar. Como fim último, esperava-se atingir uma linguagem emitida pela laringe, sem passar pelos centros nervosos superiores. Objectivo esse, francamente admitido no termo de Novilíngua "patofalar", que significava "grasnar como um pato". (...) Desde que as opiniões grasnadas fossem ortodoxas, o termo era perfeitamente laudatório; quando o Times se referia a um dos oradores do Partido caracterizando-o como "duploextrabom patofalante" estava a fazer-lhe um elogio caloroso e extremamente apreciado."
Author: George Orwell
20. "To step on a bomb, have your legs blown off and survive, is lucky. Everybody has a good-luck story. Mine was the fact that the senior medic was on patrol that day. Those who don't have a good-luck story are the ones who don't make it."
Author: Giles Duley
21. "What struck me as I began to study history was how nationalist fervor--inculcated from childhood on by pledges of allegiance, national anthems, flags waving and rhetoric blowing--permeated the educational systems of all countries, including our own. I wonder now how the foreign policies of the United States would look if we wiped out the national boundaries of the world, at least in our minds, and thought of all children everywhere as our own. Then we could never drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, or napalm on Vietnam, or wage war anywhere, because wars, especially in our time, are always wars against children, indeed our children."
Author: Howard Zinn
22. "Life was dense, dark, ancient. They watched Dean, serious and insane at his raving wheel, with eyes of hawks. All had their hands outstretched. They had come down from the back mountains and higher places to hold forth their hands for something they thought civilization could offer, and they never dreamed the sadness and the poor broken delusion of it. They didn't know that a bomb had come that could crack all our bridges and roads and reduce them to jumbles, and we would be as poor as they someday, and stretching out our hands in the same, same way"
Author: Jack Kerouac
23. "Not everyone has a voice. Many outsiders cannot speak through walls, and, as a consequence, they become silent and invisible. Some give up their voices willingly. Others cannot face the ferocious silence of their lives; so they replace their genuine voices with incomprehensible shrieks of rage. They bombard the wall with wrath or batter it with explosives. The silence is broken by their rage, but nothing changes. They remain outsiders who are desperate to be allowed into the world."
Author: Jamake Highwater
24. "I don't like hope very much. In fact, I hate it. It's the crystal meth of emotions. It hooks you fast and kills you hard. It's bad news. The worst. It's sharp sticks and cherry bombs. When hope shows up, it's only a matter of time until someone gets hurt."
Author: Jennifer Donnelly
25. "May I ask why you're passing notes to Aiden?" He eyed the letter like it was a bomb."It's a love note. I'm asking him to circle ‘yes' or ‘no' if he likes me."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
26. "Long ago when they first invented the atomic bomb people used to worry about its going off and killing everybody, but they didn't know that mankind has enough dynamite right in his guts to tear the fucking plant to pieces."
Author: John Cheever
27. "John Dalton's records, carefully preserved for a century, were destroyed during the World War II bombing of Manchester. It is not only the living who are killed in war."
Author: John Dalton
28. "There's no way out," he announced with satisfaction, "and no amount of wishful dreaming will produce one. The demon won't go back in its bottle, the face-off is for ever, the embrace gets tighter and the toys cleverer with every generation, and there's no such thing for either side as enough security. Not for the main players, not for the nasty little newcomers who each year run themselves up a suitcase bomb and join the club. We get tired of believing that, because we're human. We may even con ourselves into believing the threat has gone away. It never will. Never, never, never.""So, who'll save us then, Walt?" Barley asked. "You and Nedsky?""Vanity, if anything will, which I doubt," Walter retorted. "No leader wants to go down in history as the ass who destroyed his country in an afternoon. And funk, I suppose. Most of our gallant politicians do have a narcissistic objection to suicide, thank God."
Author: John Le Carré
29. "The Beck seemed to feel that if she let her guard down for an instant, she would die. Kidnappers lurked in every public bathroom, you got cancer if you caught a whiff of secondhand tobacco smoke, bombs and handguns proliferated in high schools everywhere, you caught AIDS if you even kissed you boyfriend. God forbid you got a sunburn of forgot to fasten your seat belt."
Author: John Lescroart
30. "The lucky ones, the ones who weren't here when the place was getting bombed to hell. We're not like these people. We shouldn't pretend we are. The stories these people have to tell, we're not entitled to them."
Author: Khaled Hosseini
31. "I looked at Reth hopefully. "You?""Must we really waste more time? Not all of us here are immortal, and I'd think you and Jack would more carefully guard what little you have. We should go immediately to my queen.""Can you get us in or not?"He looked at the ceiling, his features dripping with disdain for the entire operation. "I suppose if you were to stand immediately outside her door I could use my sense of where you are to navigate into her room and open the door from the inside.""That's my pretty faerie boy!""If you ever address me like that again, I will make that abomination on your head permanent."I put my fingers up to the brunette wig, horrified. "You wouldn't.""I suggest you do not attempt to find out."
Author: Kiersten White
32. "I think any girl who comes to Hollywood with sex symbol or bombshell hanging over her has a rough road."
Author: Kim Basinger
33. "Rosewater was twice as smart as Billy, but he and Billy were dealing with similar crises in similar ways. They had both found life meaningless, partly because of what they had seen in war. Rosewater, for instance, had shot a fourteen-year-old fireman, mistaking for a German soldier. So it goes. And Billy had seen the greatest massacre in European history, which was the fire-bombing of Dresden. So it goes. So they were trying to re-invent themselves and their universe. Science fiction was a big help."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
34. "Tem muita gente piruá neste planeta. Gente que não reage ao calor, que não desabrocha. Fica ali, duro, triste e inútil pro resto da vida. Não cumpre sua sina de revelar-se, de transformar-se em algo melhor. Não vira pipoca, mantém-se piruá. E um piruá emburrado, que reclama que nada lhe acontece de bom. Pois é. Perdeu a chance de entregar-se ao fogo, tentou se preservar, danou-se."
Author: Martha Medeiros
35. "It was awful to be Negro and have no control over my life. It was brutal to be young and already trained to sit quietly and listen to charges brought against my color with no chance of defense. We should all be dead. I thought I should like to see us all dead, one on top of the other. A pyramid of flesh with the whitefolks on the bottom, as the broad base, then the Indians with their silly tomahawks and teepees and wigwams and treaties, the Negroes with their mops and recipes and cotton sacks and spirituals sticking out of their mouths. The Dutch children should all stumble in their wooden shoes and break their necks. The French should choke to death on the Louisiana Purchase (1803) while silkworms ate all the Chinese with their stupid pigtails. As a species, we were an abomination. All of us."
Author: Maya Angelou
36. "I wonder which of the megaton bombs Jesus, our President's personal savior, would have personally dropped on the sleeping families of Baghdad?"

Author: Octave Mirbeau
40. "A pozitív gondolkodás fogalma eredetileg egy osi buddhista hagyomány nyomán jött létre. Fönnmaradt egy legenda, miszerint Buddha és a tanítványai néztek egy döglött kutyát. Mester, nézd, a halál, a bomló hús, a rothadó tetem milyen rettenetesen visszataszító! Milyen undorító, ha csak az marad meg egy lénybol, ami belole a test! - mondták a tanítványok. Buddha odanézett, és azt mondta, hogy igen, de milyen szép fehér foga van! Ez a pozitív gondolkodás alaptörténete. Innen nott ki. Vagyis nem arról van szó, hogy a negatív élményeinket, a keserveinket, a bánatainkat hazudjuk el pozitívnak. Arról van szó, hogy fogadjuk el ezeket olyan negatívnak, amilyenek a valóságban, de ha van bennük valami pozitív, akkor azt is vegyük észre."
Author: Popper Péter
41. "Djevojka?Tempirana bomba.Prema onome što sam vidio u njezinom školskom dosjeu,obitelj je,siguran sam,utjecala na njezinu podsvijest.Nije željela saznati kako je nešto napravljeno,nego zašto.To može biti nezgodno.Upitaš li za veci broj stvari zašto,na kraju ceš-ustraješ li-biti zaista nesretan."
Author: Ray Bradbury
42. "I played more of an advisory role with Public Enemy. I really trusted them to make the music that they wanted to make, and the way The Bomb Squad worked with the... they created their whole own world of music."
Author: Rick Rubin
43. "Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him."
Author: Robert A. Heinlein
44. "Yesterday's abomination is today's rule."
Author: Robert Lane Greene
45. "Here's a little thought experiment. Imagine that, on September 11, 2001, when the Twin Towers came down, the President of the United States was not George W. Bush, but Ann Coulter. What would have happened then? On September 12, President Coulter would have ordered the US military forces to drop 35 nuclear bombs throughout the Middle East, killing all of our actual and potential enemy combatants, and their wives and children. On September 13, the war would have been over and won, without a single American life lost."
Author: Satoshi Kanazawa
46. "Oh, man," says Dum. "That would have been so awesome. Can you imagine? Boom!" He mimes a mushroom cloud. "Moo!"Dee gives him a long-suffering look. "You´re such a child. You can´t just waste a nuke like that. You gotta figure out a way to control the trajectory so that when the bomb goes off, it shoots the radioactive cows into your enemies."
Author: Susan Ee
47. "Og ingen kunne slå en bydverg når det gjaldt å tylle i seg. Iblant bommet de helt på munnen."
Author: Terry Pratchett
48. "On July 18, we will mark the 12th anniversary of the senseless loss of 85 lives in the bombing of the Jewish Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina."
Author: Tom Lantos
49. "An LSD experience without the LSD" -that was a laugh. In fact, the heads are pouring in by the hundreds, bombed out of their gourds, hundreds of heads coming out into the absolute open for the first time. It is like the time the Pranksters went to the Beatles concert in full costume, looking so bizarre and so totally smoked that no one could believe they were. Nobody would risk it in public like that. Well the kids are just having an LSD experience without the LSD, that's all, and this is what it looks like. A hulking crazed whirlpool. That's nice."
Author: Tom Wolfe
50. "Bombs have kill-radiuses; churches should have love-radiuses--anyone within twenty miles of a church should know it."
Author: Tyler Edwards

Today's Quote

Time was like water, sometimes glacial and slow (the 1720s . . . never again), sometimes a still pond, sometimes a gentle brook, and then a rushing river. And sometimes time was like vapor, vanishing even as you passed through it, draping everything in mist, refracting the light."
Author: Cassandra Clare
