Supongo que antes también había hecho daño a mi padre. ¿Cómo se coloca todo bien? ¿Como lo consiguen las personas? Porque si te callas demasiadas cosas, un día estalan o se pudren. Pero si las dices, haces daño. Y a veces mueves la mano y sin querer tiras el vaso y se rompe y hay agua y cristales; dicen que eso es fácil de arreglar con una bayeta y barriendo cristales. Lo que no se arregla es que te gustaria clavarte uno, que saliera sangre y no llorar."

Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

As I was propounding some outrageous thesis or another in answer to the strictly orthodox and pious views put forward by him, his foot slipped and the next moment he was lying in a bruised condition at the bottom of a steep ruined staircase.'Look at that for divine justice,' I said, helping him onto his feet.

16. "Yo voy, lobo estepario, trotandopor el mundo de nieve cubierto;del abedul sale un cuervo volando,y no cruzan ni liebres ni corzas el campo desierto.Me enamora una corza ligera,en el mundo no hay nada tan lindo y hermoso;con mis dientes y zarpas de fieradestrozara su cuerpo sabroso.Y volviera mi afán a mi amada,en sus muslos mordiendo la carne blanquísimay saciando mi sed en su sangre por mí derramada,para aullar luego solo en la noche tristísima.Una liebre bastara también a mi anhelo;dulce sabe su carne en la noche callada y oscura.¡Ay! ¿Por qué me abandona en letal desconsuelode la vida la parte más noble y más pura?Vetas grises adquiere mi rabo peludo;voy perdiendo la vista, me atacan las fiebres;hace tiempo que ya estoy sin hogar y viudoy que troto y que sueño con corzas y liebresque mi triste destino me ahuyenta y espanta.Oigo al aire soplar en la noche de invierno,hundo en nieve mi ardiente garganta,y así voy llevando mi mísera alma al infierno."
Author: Hermann Hesse
17. "A pesar de todo, era casi un placer sufrir estos tormentos. Llevaba yo tanto tiempo arrastrándome ciego e insensible por la vida, y mi corazón había callado ya tan largamente, empobreciéndose confinado en un ángulo oscuro, que hasta aquellos reproches y aquel horror que contraían mi alma eran los bienvenidos. Era, por fin, un sentimiento, un sentimiento que ardía en llamas y en el que latía un corazón. Desconcertado, sentía en medio de mi atroz miseria algo como una liberación y esa nueva primavera."
Author: Hermann Hesse

He will be home soon;it behooves you to begenerous. You have not been completelyperfect either; with your troublesome bodyyou have done things you shouldn'tdiscuss in poems.

Whose most demonic appetitecould you possibly fail to answer? Soonhe will return from wherever he goes in the meantime,suntanned from his time away, wantinghis grilled chicken. Ah, you must greet him,you must shake the boughs of the treeto get his attention,but carefully, carefully, lesthis beautiful face be marredby too many falling needles."

"So do I."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater

It was the sort of thing Blue was used to transpiring between her mother and Persephone or Calla, and she hadn't thought anyone else really capable of it.

Author: Maggie Stiefvater
33. "It already has," Calla replied. Her eyes opened and fixed on Blue. "And it hasn't yet. Time's circular, chicken. We use the same parts of it over and over. Some of us more than others.""Wouldn't we remember that?""I said time was circular," Calla replied. "I didn't say memories were."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater

36. "Una mujer es la historia de sus actos y pensamientos, de sus células y neuronas, de sus heridas y entusiasmos, de sus amores y desamores. Una mujer es inevitablemente la historia de su vientre, de las semillas que en él fecundaron, o no lo hicieron, o dejaron de hacerlo, y del momento aquél, el único en que se es diosa. Una mujer es la historia de lo pequeño, lo trivial, lo cotidiano, la suma de lo callado. Una mujer es siempre la historia de muchos hombres. Una mujer es la historia de su pueblo y de su raza. Y es la historia de sus raíces y de su origen, de cada mujer que fue alimentada por la anterior, para que ella naciera: una mujer es la historia de su sangre.Pero también es la historia de una conciencia y de sus luchas interiores. También una mujer es la historia de su utopía."

38. "Nunca nos cansaremos de criticar a quienes deforman el pasado, lo reescriben, lo falsifican, exageran la importancia de un acontecimiento o callan otro; esas críticas están justificadas (no pueden no estarlo), pero carecen de importancia si no van precedidas de una crítica más elemental: porque la crítica de la memoria humana como tal. Porque, la pobre, ¿qué puede hacer ella realmente? Del pasado sólo es capaz de retener una miserable parcela, sin que nadie sepa por qué exactamente ésa y no otra, pues esa elección se formula misteriosamente en cada uno de nosotros ajena a nuestra voluntad y nuestros intereses. No comprendemos nada en la vida humana si persistimos en escamotear la primera de todas las evidencias: una realidad, tal cual era, ya no es; su restitución es imposible."
Author: Milan Kundera
39. "Andrew Callaghan, put that girl down before you hurt her. No one's going to touch her, but if you're not going to take care of her, you can't have her."

41. "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
42. "But then you heard Sophie was coming to Hecate, and you decided to stay," Lara finished, and her lips twisted in the triumphant smile I'd seen on Mrs. Casnoff's face dozens of times. I stood there, frozen in place, as she turned back to me and said, "Mr. Callahan gave up a chance to travel the world with the Council so that he could be little more than a janitor on Graymalkin Island. For you."
Author: Rachel Hawkins
43. "He was certainly in a confused state. I used to go and visit him in Callan Park. They were really - to me they were the best poets those two writing in those days but it wasn't very encouraging because, well, they weren't getting far were they?"
Author: Robert Adamson

Author: Rubén Darío
45. "I didn't replace Eli in Blake's heart. He simply made a little extra room to invite me in. ~Ty Callahan~"
Author: S.J.D. Peterson
46. "... no tuvieron que hacer ningún `pacto de amistad´, como suelen los muchachos de su edad, cuando organizan solemnes ritos ridículos, llenos de pasión exagerada, al aparecer la primera pasión en ellos- de una forma inconsciente y desfigurada-, al pretender por primera vez apropiarse del cuerpo y del alma del otro, sacándole del mundo para poseerlo en exclusiva. Esto y sólo esto es el sentido del amor y de la amistad. La amistad entre los dos muchachos era tan seria y tan callada como cualquier sentimiento importante que dura toda una vida. Y como todos los sentimientos grandiosos, también contenía elementos de pudor y de culpa. Uno no puede apropiarse de una persona y alejarla de todos los demás sin tener remordimientos.Ellos supieron, desde el primer momento, que su encuentro prevalecería durante toda su vida."
Author: Sándor Márai
47. "Sin looked over at Boyd through sleepy looking, heavy lidded eyes. "Callate la boca, blanquito."Hearing Sin speak Spanish didn't help any; he sounded especially sexy when he was drawling those words fluidly in his low, velvety voice. "What does that mean?" he asked, half with an edge and half just curious.Full lips turned up into a small smirk and Sin raised an eyebrow at him before turning back to the window. "It's a secret.""Putain de beau gosse," Boyd muttered under his breath in mild annoyance, flipping forward several pages."
Author: Santino Hassell
48. "Hay un momento en la vida en el que el mundo se calla y lo único que queda es tu propio corazón. Así que más vale que aprendas cómo suena. Si no, nunca entenderás lo que está diciendo."
Author: Sarah Dessen
