6. "You know, it's such a peculiar thing--our idea of mankind in general. We all have a sort of vague, glowing picture when we say that, something solemn, big and important. But actually all we know of it is the people we meet in our lifetime. Look at them. Do you know any you'd feel big and solemn about? There's nothing but housewives haggling at pushcarts, drooling brats who write dirty words on the sidewalks, and drunken debutantes. Or their spiritual equivalent. As a matter of fact, one can feel some respect for people when they suffer. They have a certain dignity. But have you ever looked at them when they're enjoying themselves? That's when you see the truth. Look at those who spend the money they've slaved for--at amusement parks and side shows. Look at those who're rich and have the whole world open to them. Observe what they pick out for enjoyment. Watch them in the smarter speak-easies. That's your mankind in general. I don't want to touch it."
Author: Ayn Rand
7. "We have created a false dichotomy between behaviors attributable to companion animals and those of other species that blinds us to the inherent worth and needs of all animals. The problem is that we have constructed a society in which we are rarely forced to think about where what we consume comes from, and this extends to the animals reared for our consumption.While we pamper one set of animals, another set of animals becomes our food. The main difference is that we come to know one set of these animals, while the other set is raised and killed for us, delivered in plastic wrap and Styrofoam, and served up as dinner. If nothing else, this belies the deep moral confusion that we have about animals as a culture."
Author: Bob Torres
8. "Tomas febrilmente la butaca, la colocas contra esa puerta sin cerradura, empujas la cama hacia la puerta, hasta atrancarla, y te arrojas exhausto sobre ella, exhausto y abúlico, con los ojos cerrados, y los brazos apretados alrededor de tu almohada: tu almohada que no es tuya; nada es tuyo..."
Author: Carlos Fuentes
9. "You and I, being grown-up and having lost our hearts at least twice or thrice along the way, might shut our eyes and cry out: Not that way, child! Butas we have said, September was Somewhat Heartless, and felt herself reasonably safe on that road. Children always do."

13. "A positive mind is like a powerful stream of water that is gathering volume and force from hundreds of tributaries all along its course. The further on it goes the greater its power, until when it reaches its goal, that power is simply immense. A negative mind, however, would be something like a stream, that the further it flows the more divisions it makes, until, when it reaches its goal, instead of being one powerful stream, it has become a hundred, small, weak, shallow streams."
Author: Christian D. Larson

15. "What irritated me most in that entire situation was the fact that Iwasn't feeling humiliated, or annoyed, or even fooled. Betrayal waswhat I felt, my heart broken not just by a guy I was in love with, butalso by, as I once believed, a true friend."
Author: Danka V.

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
21. "Over the years, Skye sampled every drug she could find, and like many addicts, had a working knowledge of pharmacology. She snorted coke and swallowed pills. She took downers—orange and red Seconal, red and ivory Dalmane, Miltown, Librium, Luminal, Nembutal, and Quaaludes. Blue devils, red birds, purple hearts. Enough of them sank her in a kind of coma, where she watched her own limbs suspended in front of her in syrup. For a party, there was Benzedrine, rushing in her veins and making her talk for an hour in one long sentence. Day to day, she carried yellow tablets loose in her pockets, Dilaudid and Percodan, and chewed them in the back of classrooms. But her favorite was the greatest pain reliever of them all, named for the German word for hero."
Author: Frederick Weisel

Author: Gro Harlem Brundtland
23. "Nem nehéz dolog muvelt embernek látszani, annyi az egész mesterség, hogy ne fogasd rajta magadat valami tudatlanságon. Az ember manoverezik, elsikkasztja a nehézségeket, megkerüli az akadályokat, s egy lexikon segítségével lefoz mindenkit. Minden ember olyan buta, mint a liba, és olyan tudatlan, mint a szamár."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
24. "The age of clear answers was over. So was the age of characters and plots. Despite her journal sketches, she no longer really believed in characters. They were quiant devices that belonged to the nineteenth century. The very concept of character was founded on errors that modern psychology had exposed. Plots too were like rusted machinery whose wheels would no longer turn. A modern novelist could no more write characters and plots than a modern composer could a Mozart symphony. It was thought, perception, sensations that interested her, the conscious mind as a river through time, and how to represent its onward roll, as well as the tributaries that would swell it, and the obstacles that would divert it. If only she could reproduce the clear light of a summer's morning, the sensations of a child standing at a window, the curve and dip of a swallow's flight over a pool of water. The novel of the future would be unlike anything in the past."
Author: Ian McEwan
25. "It was thought, perception, sensations that interested her, the conscious mind as a river through time, and how to represent its onward roll, as well as all the tributaries that would swell it, and the obstacles that would divert it.

26. "I don't know,' said Frodo. ‘It came to me then, as if I was making it up; but I may have heard it long ago. Certainly it reminds me very much of Bilbo in the last years, before he went away. He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. "It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to. Do you realize that this is the very path that goes through Mirkwood, and that if you let it, it might take you to the Lonely Mountain or even further and to worse places?" He used to say that on the path outside the front door at Bag End, especially after he had been out for a long walk."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
27. "She is a mess, her dress once pulled together long and fresh, now drooping and awkwardly weighted to one side of her head. "What happened? Are you okay?" The women clamor around her.Nick walks out in perfect order and perfect swagger, passing her with a downward glance. "You forgot your panties". He said tossing her underwear onto the table in front of her. After being embarrassingly ignored by the group of debutants, the nearby college boys feel justified by the turn of events and break into hysterics. Slinking out the side door, the mortified women exit without another word."
Author: Jennifer Loren
28. "... the General Cemetery's unwritten motto is All the Names, although it should be said that, in fact, these three words fit the Central Registry like a glove, because it is there that all the names are to be found, both those of the dead and those of the living, while the cemetery, given its role as ultimate destination and ultimate depository, has to content itself only with the names of the dead. This mathematical evidence, however, is not enough to silence the keepers of the General Cemetery who, confronted by what they call their apparent numerical inferiority, usually shrug their shoulders and argue, With time and patience everyone ends up here, the Central Registry, from this point of view, is merely a tributary of the General Cemetery."
Author: José Saramago
29. "They will say I smoked cigarettes and marijuana, cursed hoarse as a crow in all my languages, and loved morphine and Demerol and tequila and pulque, women and men. I will shrug my illusion of shoulders and answer that I am a water woman, not a vessel, not something you can sail or charter. I am instead the tributary, the river, the fluid source, and the sea itself. I am all her rainy implications. And what do you, with your rusted compass, know of love?"
Author: Kate Braverman
30. "Pada pagi hari yang buta, banyak mimpi datang berurutan, berjejer-jejer menawarkan banyak harapan, pada saat ini siang sudah terlanjur mengawal, maka hanya kecewa yang ada."
Author: Layla R. Aprilyani
31. "Setiap huruf berloncatan mencari jodoh membentuk kata; setiap kata meliuk, melesat, dan mungkin saling bertabrakan dan rebutan mendapatkan jodoh untuk membentuk daya puitik. Setiap huruf mempunyai ruh, mempunyai nyawa, dan memilih kehidupannya sendiri."
Author: Leila S. Chudori
32. "Fashionable debutantes in pastel chiffon party dresses wilt into leather club chairs like frosted petit fours melting under the July sun."
Author: Libba Bray
33. "Bhutan does seem a bit unreal at times. Hardly anybody in the U.S. knows where it is. I have friends who still think the entire country is a figment of my imagination. When I was getting ready to move there, and I told people I was going to work in Bhutan, they'd inevitably ask, "Where's Butane?"It is near Africa," I'd answer, to throw them off the trail. "It's where all the disposable lighters come from."They'd nod in understanding."
Author: Linda Leaming
34. "Jika sebuah mata harus dibalas dengan sebuah mata, hanya akan membuat seluruh dunia ini buta"
Author: Mahatma Gandhi
35. "Somewhere int he flesh of the earth the dreadful earthquake shuddered, the tide walked to and fro on the leash of the moon, rainbows formed, winds swept the sky like giant brooms piling up clouds before them, clouds which writhed into different shapes, melted into rain or darkened, bruised themselves against an unseen antagonist and went on their way, laced with forking rivers of lightning, complete with white electric tributaries. Out of this infinite vision an infinity of details could be drawn, but Sonny had settled on one, and from the endless series a particular beach was chosen and began to form around Laura - a beach of iron-dark sand and shells like frail stars, and a wonderful wide sea that stretched, neither green nor blue, but inked by the approach of night into violet and black, wrinkling with its own salty puzzles, right out to a distant, pure horizon."
Author: Margaret Mahy
36. "My point being, what if my attacks are enterly unrelated attributable in fact to something entirely else, perhaps for instance just warning shocks brought on by my own crumbling biology, tiny flakes of unknown chemical origin already burning holes through the fabric of my mind, dismantling memories, undoing even the strongest powers of imagination and reason?how then do you fly from that path?"
Author: Mark Z. Danielewski
37. "Mengenai kebutaan hati dan cara penyembuhannya, Nabi berkata, "segala sesuatu yang berkarat ada pengkilapnya, dan pengkilap hati adalah mengingat Allah."
Author: Martin Lings
38. "Tapi benar untuk mencaci manusia karena ia buta terhadap 'coincidence' yang terjadi dalam kehidupan sehari-harinya. Karena dengan begitu, ia menghilangkan dimensi keindahan dari hidupnya."
Author: Milan Kundera
39. "Num duvida só, era muita chuva, só que: aqui somos muitos também. A união faz o reforço? Meu: é no sofrimento que o sorriso dum povo fica todo semelhado – uma única boca sem rosto a rir na cara da desgraça, a lhe amolecer. Brincas? Porque desfortúnio, inundação social? – é quase sempre uma questão de olhos, olhares. Não espanta só, uí, gala inda: o imbondeiro pra ti pode ser uma árvore cambuta-seca, feia. Mas!, e se eu te emprestar outras vistas: árvores antiga-rija, bonita de ilustrar muitas vezes o sol-poente?"
Author: Ondjaki
40. "Aku boleh seorang pelacur! Aku boleh seorang sampah masyarakat! Aku seorang bintang film gagal! Tapi beradat! Tidak. Aku juga punya tanah air. Aku Larasati, bintang ara. Sedang sebutan Miss pun aku tak pernah pakai. Ara! Cukup Ara. Mengapa mesti dengan Miss? Sebutan itu akan membuat aku berkulit putih. Apakah sebutan itu tantangan kaum pria, kalau aku milik siapa saja?"
Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
41. "'Reedlike, that's what Hedy Kiesler is, sweet and reedlike, and when she wants to talk to you she doesn't lean over your shoulder and arch herself out behind like a debutante....She leans back from you [and] takes a good look in your eyes and a firm grip on your name before she will allow herself to say a word.'"
Author: Richard Rhodes
42. "I'd say that most of these [poems in Jason Mashak's book SALTY AS A LIP] are just straightforward enough, but not entirely explainable or attributable to a single cause/effect, which makes them the kind of poems I want to read many times… "Salty as a lip" is my favorite. It's so alive: strange and human / earthy and raw. Mysterious but grounded. Mashak has manifested paradox, it seems. Bravo!"
Author: Sage Cohen
43. "Dalam dekapan ukhuwah, kelembutan nurani menuntun kita untuk menjadi anak Adam sejati; memiliki kesalahan, mengakuinya, memperbaikinya, dan memaafkan sesama yang juga tak luput dari khilaf dan lupa..."
Author: Salim Akhukum Fillah
44. "Daughters of the South were to their mothers what tributaries were to the main rivers they flowed into: their source of immovable strength."
Author: Sarah Addison Allen
45. "... He'd been about to turn away when she lifted her face to the moon and sang.It was not in any language that he knew. Not in the common tongue, or in Eyllwe, or in the languages of Fenharrow or Melisande, or anywhere else on the continentThis language was ancient, each word full of power and rage and agony.She did not have a beautiful voice. And many of the words sounded like half sobs, the vowels stretched by the pangs of sorrow, the consonants hardened by anger. She beat her breast in time, so full of savage grace, so at odds with the black gown and veil she wore. The hair on the back of his neck stood as the lament poured from her mouth, unearthly and foreign, a song of grief so old that it predated the stone castle itself.And the the song finished, its end as butal and sudden as Nehemia's death had been.She stood there a few moments, silent and unmoving."
Author: Sarah J. Maas
46. "Mayat Papa dijadikan rebutan. Padahal sewaktu hidup, jarang yang menggubris dia."
Author: Soe Tjen Marching
47. "This is how great intellectual breakthroughs usually happen in practice. It is rarely the isolated genius having a eureka moment alone in the lab. Nor is it merely a question of building on precedent, of standing on the shoulders of giants, in Newton's famous phrase. Great breakthroughs are closer to what happens in a flood plain: a dozen separate tributaries converge, and the rising waters lift the genius high enough that he or she can see around the conceptual obstructions of the age."
Author: Steven Johnson
48. "They all think any minute I'm going to commit suicide. What a joke. The truth of course is the exact opposite: suicide is the only thing that keeps me alive. Whenever everything else fails, all I have to do is consider suicide and in two seconds I'm as cheerful as a nitwit. But if I could not kill myself -- ah then, I would. I can do without nembutal or murder mysteries but not without suicide."
Author: Walker Percy
49. "Budaya ilmu juga bermakna ilmu dituntut dengan berbagai-bagai cara seperti pembacaan dan pendengaran atau pengalaman. Walaupun Islam menekankan kebolehan menulis dan membaca, tetapi dalam masyarakat Islam dahulu buta huruf tidak bermakna buta ilmu."
Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
50. "Just as the water of a river near its mouth, in its final form, is composed largely of many tributaries, so an idea, in its final form, is composed largely of later additions."
Author: Willy Ley
