Author: Aaron Koblin

Author: Alberto Manguel

6. "In a sense I want the same thing that my grandfather wanted, that people should not suffer. Yet I am not like him. He remade himself so that he could live for eternity. Yet he never defeated the eternal enemy - no, not the cyborgs or the robots. The enemy is fear, simple fear. Grandfather was always afraid of suffering.I am not afraid. I want something more for people. I want them to be happy, and I believe our suffering as a race can eventually bring us to a place of great wonder. For all I have suffered since I came back in time, I have been happy to be alive."
Author: Christopher Pike
7. "This woman is Pocahontas. She is Athena and Hera. Lying in this messy, unmade bed, eyes closed, this is Juliet Capulet. Blanche DuBois. Scarlett O'Hara. With ministrations of lipstick and eyeliner I give birth to Ophelia. To Marie Antoinette. Over the next trip of the larger hand around the face of the bedside clock, I give form to Lucrezia Borgia. Taking shape at my fingertips, my touches of foundation and blush, here is Jocasta. Lying here, Lady Windermere. Opening her eyes, Cleopatra. Given flesh, a smile, swinging her sculpted legs off one side of the bed, this is Helen of Troy. Yawning and stretching, here is every beautiful woman across history."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
8. "[...] og at han la særlig vekt på å gjennomgå Ibsens dramaer med sine elever, da var det den andre kunne si: Ja, Ibsen, ja, han ligger nok for høyt for meg, eller: Nei, du vet, jeg har aldri kommet til å interessere meg for litteratur, og i dette lå det en beklagelse, og den var ikke deres egen, for de var jo så lite interessert i litteratur og Ibsens dramaer at de ikke så noen grunn til å beklage det, hva i himmelens navn var det de skulle beklage, for sin egen del? Nei, det var som samfunnsmennesker de fant det nødvendig å uttrykk denne beklagelse, altså beklagelse som et nødvendig uttrykk for den dannelse ethvert sivilisert samfunn søker å gi sine borgere, og som det, som man ser, i dette tilfellet hadde lykkes med. At enkle samtaler mellom gamle kjente som tilfeldigvis treffes etter noen år, arter seg slik, og ikke på stikk motsatt vis, på dette bygger et hvert sivilisert samfunn sine fundamenter, hadde han ofte tenkt, ikke minst i de siste åra."
Author: Dag Solstad
9. "Zomaar een mijmering, een pasgeboren stuiverfilosofietje:Dat de tranen die vloeien als de pupillen elkaar aanraken, zoals ik vroeger droomde, misschien heel anders zijn dan de tranen die de gangbare traangebruiker kent. Ik bedoel - misschien zijn het honingzoete tranen die komen uit een verborgen reservetraankliertje dat we niet eens kennen. Het enige orgaan dat geschapen is in de wetenschap dat het nooit gebruikt zou worden. Een droevige privé-grap van God, die van tevoren wist met wie hij te maken had, want de aantrekkingskracht kan kennelijk wel overwonnen worden, maar niet de afkeer en afweer van een ziel die ineens een andere ziel voor zich ziet, dichtbij en gapend, waarna dus meteen de knippering komt, die de grenswacht is."
Author: David Grossman
10. "Vorher glaubte ich, die Dinge hätten eine Bestimmung, einen verborgenen Sinn. Vorher glaubte ich, dieser Sinn sei der Gestaltung der Welt vorausgegangen. Aber der Gedanke, es gebe schlechte und gute Gründe, ist eine Illusion,[...], denn ich weiß jetzt, dass das Leben nur eine Folge von Ruhe- und Ungleichgewichtszuständen ist, deren Anordnung keiner Notwendigkeit unterliegt."
Author: Delphine De Vigan
11. "Cyborgs are not reverent; they do not re-member the cosmos. They are wary of holism, but needy for connection- they seem to have a natural feel for united front politics, but without the vanguard party. The main trouble with cyborgs, of course, is that they are the illegitimate offspring of militarism and patriarchal capitalism, not to mention state socialism. But illegitimate offspring are often exceedingly unfaithful to their origins."
Author: Donna J. Haraway
12. "The cyborg is a kind of disassembled and reassembled, postmodern collective and personal self. This is the self feminists must code."
Author: Donna J. Haraway
13. "And what about ageing? Do men force the fear of ageing upon us -- or are we ourselves terrified because we only know one kind of power -- the power of youthful beauty?Isn't it possible that if we became comfortable with other forms of female power, men might too? In her wonderful futurist novel, He, She, and It, Marge Piercy imagines a cyborg who is taught to love the bodies of older women. A delicious proposal -- because it tells that whatever we may imagine can come true. Women often hate their own bodies. Sometimes I think that the most important things about having at least one relationship with someone of your own gender -- especially if you are a woman -- is to confront the female self-hatred and turn it into self-love."
Author: Erica Jong
14. "Für niemand ist die Erde so viel wie für den Soldaten. Wenn er sich an sie presst, lange, heftig, wenn er sich tief mit dem Gesicht und mit den Gliedern in sie hineinwühlt in der Todesangst des Feuers, dann ist sie sein einziger Freund, sein Bruder, seine Mutter, er stöhnt seine Furcht und seine Schreie in ihr Schweigen und ihre Geborgenheit, sie nimmt sie auf und entlässt ihn wieder zu neuen zehn Sekunden Lauf und Leben, fasst ihn wieder und manchmal für immer."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
15. "Wir reden nicht viel, aber wir sind voll zarterer Rücksicht miteinander, als ich mir denke, dass Liebende es sein können. Wir sind zwei Menschen, zwei winzige Funken Leben, draußen ist die Nacht und der Kreis des Todes. Wir sitzen an ihrem Rande, gefährdet und geborgen...wir sind uns nahe mit unseren Herzen und die Stunde ist wie der Raum: Überflackert von einem sanftem Feuer gehen die Empfindungen hin und her..."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
17. "The command his voice wielded over my body was disconcerting. Was he a cyborg created to epitomize masculine perfection, testing the restraint of earthly women? it seemed a viable explanation."
Author: Genna Rulon
18. "Wenn mir Musik die Seele bewegte, dann verstand ich ohne Worte doch alles, fühlte in der Tiefe alles Lebens reine Harmonie und glaubte zu wissen, daß ein Sinn und schönes Gesetz in allem Geschehen verborgen sei. Wenn es auch eine Täuschung war, ich lebte doch darin und war darin beglückt."
Author: Hermann Hesse
19. "Zo vallen rondom een herfstboom de bladeren, hij voelt het niet, regen stroomt van hem af, of zon, of vorst en binnenin hem trekt het leven zich tot het uiterste en verborgenste terug. Hij sterft niet. Hij wacht."
Author: Hermann Hesse
20. "Uit deze belevenissen, die niemand ziet, bestaat de innerlijke, wezenlijke lijn van ons lot. Zulk een breuk en scheur groeit weer dicht, hij heelt en wordt vergeten, maar in de diepst verborgen hoek leeft en bloedt hij verder."
Author: Hermann Hesse
21. "E ke menduar se po te largohesh kaq shume nga jeta njerezore, nga ajo qe ti me perbuzje e quan "malli i jetes", mund te percudnohesh kaq shume, saqe, po te duash te kthehesh prape, ajo s'ka per te te pranuar me, ashtu sic eshte e papranueshme nje fantazme? Gjepura kishte thene Kramsi, fjaleri mikroborgjeze, kurse tjetri kishte vazhduar: nje hije, ja c'je ti Krams."
Author: Ismail Kadaré
22. "Incominciava a formarsi il vortice che per un istante avrebbe sottratto l'operaio, la sartina, il povero borghese alla noia della vita volgare per condurli poi al dolore. Ammaccati, sperduti, alcuni sarebbero ritornati all'antica vita divenuta però più greve; gli altri non avrebbero trovato mai più la quaresima."
Author: Italo Svevo
23. "—Cuando te dirijas a mí —replicó de nuevo seriamente el fastidioso duque—, debes hacerme una reverencia y no es una sugerencia, es una orden, es tu obligación. El grado de mi título está en la línea después del principado y así como llamas con el debido respeto a mi sobrino "su alteza" al referirte a mí, lo harás diciéndome "excelencia" ¿Está claro? Entiendo que no sabes nada de costumbres nobles, pero ya que me tomé la molestia de instruirte al respecto, espero que lo hagas."Lucrecia Borgia" —pensé mirándolo fija y seriamente—. "Deseaba ser Lucrecia Borgia y darle de beber algo más que vino al tipo, porque de verdad me había hecho hervir la sangre, pero de coraje.—Como usted diga, excelencia. —Intenté reverenciarlo y evitar que notara que me había humillado. El odioso duque, ignoró completamente mi saludo."
Author: Itxa Bustillo
24. "In the immortal words of myself, "If our destiny stems from our name, then I weep for the flower named Wilt." Likewise, if cyborgs one day come to be viewed as so human-like that they are accepted as equals, then I cry for the cyborg named Mel T. Down."
Author: Jarod Kintz
25. "Not wise, perhaps, to be rude to the Pope's favorite son, but my viper tongue still required a fool now and then on which to exercise its edges, and Juan Borgia served admirably in place of drunken innkeepers and tavern cheats."
Author: Kate Quinn
26. "There are a lot of impractical things about owning a Porsche. But they're all offset by the driving experience. It really is unique. Lamborghinis and Ferraris come close. And they are more powerful, but they don't handle like a Porsche."
Author: Kevin O'Leary
27. "Father Travis leaned back. I glanced up at him. He was watching us from under his brow, his hands folded in his lap. His eyes had taken on that cyborg gleam. His cheekbones looked like they were going to break right through his skin. Not only did he own a copy of Alien, not only did he have an amazing and terrible wound, but he had called us humiliating names without actually resorting to the usual swear words. Besides that there was the deft speed with which he'd caught Angus, the free weights beside the television, the fancy Michelob. It was almost enough to make a boy want to be a Catholic."
Author: Louise Erdrich
28. "En tiedä pelkäävätkö he tuolia vai minua, vai olemmeko me heidän silmissään yksi ja sama, jonkinlainen kyborgi, pyörä-Maria."

Author: Mary Doria Russell

My fish is the Borghal Rantipole who I made look like a fishie because I am so clever and I can do things like that if I want... La la la... It knows many thingummies. The Borghal Rantipole that is. And now it is inconspicuous too as well."
Author: Neil Gaiman
35. "All roll and butter and a small coffee seemed the only things on the list that hadn't been specially prepared by the nastier-minded members of the Borgia family for people they had a particular grudge against, so I chose them. ~ Bertram "Bertie" Wooster - The Inimitable Jeeves"
Author: P.G. Wodehouse

Author: Richard Krajicek
38. "He used to talk to me about Russia all the time and had sworn up and down that I'd love it here. "To you, it'd be like a fairy tale," he'd told me."Sorry, comrade. Borg and out-of-date music aren't part of any happy ending I've ever imagined.""Borscht, not borg. And I've seen your appetite. If you were hungry enough, you'd eat it." "So starvation's necessary for this fairy tale to work out?"
Author: Richelle Mead
39. "Betsy: "You bring nothing but trouble!"Fantomex: "Forgive me if this has inconvenienced your plans for afternoon tea, Miss Braddock. Cyborgs killed my mother and stole from me."
Author: Rick Remender
40. "Thing that got me was not her list of things she hated, since she was obviously crazy as a Cyborg, but fact that always somebody agreed with her prohibitions. Must be a yearning deep in human heart to stop other people from doing as they please. Rules, laws — always for other fellow. A murky part of us, something we had before we came down out of trees, and failed to shuck when we stood up. Because not one of those people said: "Please pass this so that I won't be able to do something I know I should stop." Nyet, tovarishchee, was always something they hated to see neighbors doing. Stop them "for their own good" — not because speaker claimed to be harmed by it."
Author: Robert A. Heinlein
41. "To prove to [her friend, Swedish diplomat Count] Gyllenborg that she was not superficial, Catherine composed an essay about herself, "so that he would see whether I knew myself or not." The next day, she wrote and handed to Gyllenborg an essay titled 'Portrait of a Fifteen-Year-Old Philosopher.' He was impressed and returned it with a dozen pages of comments, mostly favorable. "I read his remarks again and again, many times [Catherine later recalled in her memoirs]. I impressed them on my consciousness and resolved to follow his advice. In addition, there was something else surprising: one day, while conversing with me, he allowed the following sentence to slip out: 'What a pity that you will marry! I wanted to find out what he meant, but he would not tell me."
Author: Robert K. Massie
42. "One should read Borges more."
Author: Roberto Bolaño
43. "Giulia clasped her hands together just below her bosom, blinked moistly, and flung herself at Borgia's feet. 'My lord! My darling! How could I not be overcome with concern for you? Truly, the burdens you carry would crush any other man. How fortunate we are that Our Father in Heaven has endowed our father here on earth with such wisdom and strength to see us through this difficult time.'What amazed me - and still does - is that men actually believe such drivel. Even a man as worldly, as brilliant, and above all as cynical as Borgia will nod complacently and accept it as his due. Nor did Cesare so much as raise an eyebrow. I supposed he heard the same sort of thing often enough himself."
Author: Sara Poole
44. "Jary, Garge, Elane and Daved Pady emerge from the Lamborgini Veneno like sad clown's from the SICKEST clown car ever."

Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
46. "This is the experience of living full time on the Net, newly free in some ways, newly yoked in others. We are all cyborgs now."
Author: Sherry Turkle
47. "Is there just one single love in a lifetime? Are all our lovers ? from the first to the last, including the most fleeting ? part of that unique love, and is each of them merely an expression of it, a variation, a particular version? In the same way that in literature there is just one true masterpiece to which different writers give a particular form (taking the twentieth century alone: Joyce, who explores everything happening inside his character;s head with microscopic precision; Proust, for whom the present is merely a memory of the past; Kafka, who drifts on the margins between dream and reality; the blind Borges, probably the one I relate to best, etc)."
Author: Sijie Dai
48. "Does anyone know if Lamborghini makes wheelchair vehicles? If not, I want to change that."
Author: Steve Gleason
49. "Many a night that summer she left Dr. Archie's office with a desire to run and run about those quiet streets until she wore out her shoes, or wore out the streets themselves; when her chest ached and it seemed as if her heart were spreading all over the desert. When she went home, it was not to go to sleep. She used to drag her mattress beside her low window and lie awake for a long while, vibrating with excitement, as a machine vibrates from speed. Life rushed in upon her through that window -- or so it seemed. In reality, of course, life rushes from within, not from without. There is no work of art so big or so beautiful that it was not once all contained in some youthful body, like this one which lay on the floor in the moonlight, pulsing with ardor and anticipation. It was on such nights that Thea Kronborg learned the thing that old Dumas meant when he told the Romanticists that to make a drama he needed but one passion and four walls."
Author: Willa Cather
50. "Los personajes femeninos de Lovborg: una evaluaciónDORF: Oh, Netta. ¡Todo está perdido! ¡Perdido!NETTA: Para un hombre pusilánime, tal vez, pero no para un hombre que tenga...valor."
Author: Woody Allen
