Howard, pass the salt. I was a little surprised myself."

9. "Porque labios libertinos o venales le habían murmurado frases semejantes, no creía sino débilmente en el candor de las mismas; había que rebajar, pensaba él, los discursos exagerados que ocultan afectos mediocres; como si la plenitud del alma no se desbordara a veces por las metáforas más vacías, puesto que nadie puede jamás dar la exacta medida de sus necesidades, ni de sus conceptos, ni de sus dolores, y la palabra humana es como un caldero cascado en el que tocamos melodías para hacer bailar a los osos, cuando quisiéramos conmover a las estrellas."
Author: Gustave Flaubert

12. "There had been a popular joke on Freedom, started by a man named Calder. Looking down from space, he had said, the dominant life forms on Earth were obviously the cereals and other grasses. They occupied all the most desirable and fertile land; and they had tamed insects and animals to care for them. In particular, they had domesticated the bipeds to nurture and cultivate them and to save and plant their seed. Now, watching the farmers, Alex could easily imagine that they were worshiping and genuflecting before their masters."
Author: Larry Niven
