1. "In this world, man is a target of death, an easy prey to calamities. Here,(in this world)every morsel and every draught is liable to choke one.

When death is the natural outcome of life, how can one expect immortality?"

3. "Consideremos la larga historia de las actividades inspiradas por el fervor moral: los sacrificios humanos, las persecuciones de herejes, las cazas de brujas, los pogroms, hasta que se llega al exterminio en gran escala por medio de gases venenosos, que al menos uno de los colegas episcopales del doctor Barnes parece patrocinar, ya que sostiene que el pacifismo es anticristiano. ¿Son estas abominaciones, y las doctrinas éticas que las inspiran, realmente prueba de un Creador inteligente? ¿Y podemos realmente desear que los hombres que las practicaron vivan eternamente? El mundo en que vivimos puede ser entendido como resultado de la confusión y el accidente; pero, si es el resultado de un propósito deliberado, el propósito tiene que haber sido el de un demonio. Por mi parte, encuentro el accidente una hipótesis menos penosa y más verosímil."
Author: Bertrand Russell

5. "Whatever worldly thing we may covet - zealously striving to obtain and then retain - never seems to bring an end to our desires. Covetousness, envy, jealousy, and greed always escalate into a vicious spiral, as we seek greater and greater gratification but find less and less contentment. . . . Striving to acquire the things of the world not only does not bring lasting happiness and peace, but it drives us to seek more. When "all we've ever wanted" is grounded in the temporal trappings of this world, it is never enough!"
Author: Brent Top

Cum ar putea? Noi insine suntem propria noastra calatorie. Si deci suntem timpul insusi. Suntem exact ca el. Efemeri. De neinteles. Fara mila.)"
Author: Cormac McCarthy

11. "Trebao sam samo da nadjem jednu koja me nece podsecati na nju. Pogledao sam oko sebe i desilo se cudo. Ni jedna me nije podsecala na nju. Sve su glumile princeze i svetice. Verovatno bi svaka od njih trazila da prestanem cugat', pusiti, da se ponasam pristojnije. Sve bi one trazile da ih drzim kao kap vode na dlanu, da ne zbijam sale na njihov racun.

Nije trazila da je drzim kao kap vode na dlanu .Cinjenica da je volim bila joj je sasvim dovoljna"

Still humping the American Dream, that vision of the Big Winner somehow emerging from the last- minute pre-dawn chaos of a stale Vegas casino."
