27. "Influenciar a una persona es prestarle nuestra propia alma. No piensa ya sus pensamientos naturales, ni arde con sus propias pasiones. Sus virtudes dejan de ser suyas. Sus pecados, si es que hay pecados, son de segunda mano. Se convierte en el eco de una música ajena, en el actor de un papel que no había sido escrito para él. El fin de la vida es el desenvolvimiento de la personalidad. Advertir nuestra propia naturaleza cabalmente, para eso hemos venido. Hoy los hombres se asustan de sí mismos. Han olvidado el más alto de sus deberes, el deber que uno se debe a sí mismo. Sí, son caritativos; dan pan al hambriento y vestido al mendigo. Pero sus propias almas mueren de hambre y van desnudas. El valor abandonó a nuestra raza. Quizás nunca lo tuvimos. El temor a la sociedad, es la base de la moral; y el temor de Dios, es el secreto de la religión: tales son las dos fuerzas que nos gobiernan. Y, sin embargo…"
Author: Oscar Wilde

"Tengo hambre de tu boca, de tu voz, de tu peloy por las calles voy sin nutrirme, callado,no me sostiene el pan, el alba me desquicia,busco el sonido líquido de tus pies en el día.Estoy hambriento de tu risa resbalada,de tus manos color de furioso granero,tengo hambre de la pálida piedra de tus uñas,quiero comer tu piel como una intacta almendra.Quiero comer el rayo quemado en tu hermosura,la nariz soberana del arrogante rostro,quiero comer la sombra fugaz de tus pestañasy hambriento vengo y voy olfateando el crepúsculobuscándote, buscando tu corazón calientecomo un puma en la soledad de Quitratúe"
Author: Pablo Neruda
29. "In combating cynicism, it helps to know its source. Scratch the surface of most cynics and you find a frustated idealist – someone who made the mistake of converting his ideals into expectations. Bill O'Brien points out that ‘burnout' comes from causes other than simply working too hard: "There are teachers, social workers and clergy who work incredibly hard until they are 80 years old and never suffer 'burnout' - because they have an accurate view of human nature. They don't over-romanticize people, so they don't feel the great pshychological stress when people let them down"

Tus miedos. Y roban tu alma,Pero tu cuerpo permanece...y nadie nota la diferencia""Los Voradores nos rodeanUsan nuestros nombres y caras, pero no son nosotros.

En lo oscuro permanecerá, perdido por siempre, entre el miedo y la duda""Su miedo te ha devorado, él se quedará aquí para siempre"
Author: Simon Holt
35. "All of us, I suppose, like to believe that in a moral emergency we will behave like the heroes of our youth, bravely and forthrightly, without thought of personal loss or discredit. Certainly that was my conviction back in the summer of 1968. Tim O'Brien: a secret hero. The Lone Ranger. If the stakes ever became high enough—if the evil were evil enough, if the good were good enough—I would simply tap a secret reservoir of courage that had been accumulating inside me over the years. Courage, I seemed to think, comes to us in finite quantities, like an inheritance, and by being frugal and stashing it away and letting it earn interest, we steadily increase our moral capital in preparation for that day when the account must be drawn down. It was a comforting theory. It dispensed with all those bothersome little acts of daily courage; it offered hope and grace to the repetitive coward; it justified the past while amortizing the future."
Author: Tim O'Brien
36. "En este lugar perdemos demasiado tiempo mirando hacia atrás, Camina hacia el futuro, abriendo nuevas puertas y probando cosas nuevas, sé curioso... porque nuestra curiosidad siempre nos conduce por nuevos caminos."
