3. "The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear is a dead man. To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties – this knowledge, this feeling … that is the core of the true religious sentiment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself among profoundly religious men."
Author: Albert Einstein

Author: Bell Hooks
6. "There is no act of treachery or meanness of which a political party is not capable; for in politics there is no honour."
Author: Benjamin Disraeli
7. "God could, had He pleased, have been incarnate in a man of iron nerves, the Stoic sort who lets no sigh escape him. Of His great humility He chose to be incarnate in a man of delicate sensibilities who wept at the grave of Lazarus and sweated blood in Gethsemane. Otherwise we should have missed the great lesson that it is by his will alone that a man is good or bad, and that feelings are not, in themselves, of any im­portance. We should also have missed the all-important help of knowing that He has faced all that the weakest of us face, has shared not only the strength of our nature but every weakness of it except sin. If He had been incarnate in a man of immense natural courage, that would have been for many of us almost the same as His not being incar­nate at all."
Author: C.S. Lewis
8. "I long for your embrace, your warmth, and your gentleness. I crave your touch. Your body, your mind, your words move me. I fear I am not capable of expressing the depth of my emotion, for I have never known such a feeling and never will again. As much as I have striven to remain detached, my heart and my soul belong to you, now and forever."
Author: Chris Lange
9. "All species capable of grasping this fact manage better in the struggle for existence than those which rely upon their own strength alone: the wolf, which hunts in a pack, has a greater chance of survival than the lion, which hunts alone."
Author: Christian Lous Lange
10. "Lifaen beamed and cried, "Isn't she glorious? See how her scales catch the light! No treasure in the world can match this sight." Similar exclamations floated across the river from Narí."Bloody unbearable, that's what it is," muttered Orik into his beard. Eragon hid a smile, though he agreed with the dwarf. The elves never seemed to tire of praising Saphira.Nothing's wrong with a few compliments, said Saphira. She landed with a gigantic splash and submerged her head to escape a diving sparrow.Of course not, said Eragon.Saphira eyed him from underwater. Was that sarcasm?"
Author: Christopher Paolini
11. "It used to take me forever to read and comprehend stuff, so I decided not to make the 'Captain Underpants' books too challenging. Don't get me wrong - the humor and ideas are often sophisticated - but the books aren't hard to read. I wanted kids who hate reading to find these books irresistible."
Author: Dav Pilkey
12. "The journey through another world, beyond bad dreamsbeyond the memories of a murdered generation,cartographed in captivity by bare survivorsmakes sacristans of us all.The old ones go our bail, we oblate preachers of our tribes.Be careful, they say, don't hock the beads of kinship agonies; the moire-effect of unfamiliar hymnsupon our own, a change in pitch or shrillness of the voicetransforms the ways of song to words of poetry or proseand makes distinctionsno one recognizes.Surrounded and absorbed, we tread like Etruscanson the edge of useless law; we prayto the giver of prayer, we give the cane whistlein ceremony, we swing the heavy silver chainof incense burners. Migration makes new citizens of Rome."
Author: Elizabeth Cook Lynn
13. "In moments of exaltation one expressed sentiments that outstripped one's spiritual capabilities by a vast span; and she knew well that unless God is sought for Himself alone, with a selflessness of which she was at present incapable, He is not to be found."
Author: Elizabeth Goudge

15. "Non faccio parte di quegli esaltati che sognano la realtà invece di vederla o che l'agghindano come un'amante lontana e appena intravista: la rivestono di mille qualità, mille parole non pronunciate, mille intenzioni inconfessate che concorrono alla loro felicità, mille silenzi che avranno una loro favorevole spiegazione. No, io non sono uno di questi amanti immaginari, fabbricatori di bellezza, artigiani di bontà, doratori dell'ideale, demiurghi della felicità. La realtà, io la conosco; peggio ancora, la sospetto. Mi attendo sempre che sia peggiore di quanto sembri, più violenta, più sinuosa, più torturata, ambigua, capziosa, vendicativa, interessata, egoista, tirchia, aggressiva, ingiusta, versatile, indifferente, vana; in una parola: più deludente. Di conseguenza io non abbandono la realtà, io la bracco, le resto attaccato al culo, faccio la posta a ogni sua debolezza e cattivo odore, la spremo sino a farne sprizzare il suo succo immondo. (da Il Vangelo secondo Pilato, pag. 101)"
Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt
16. "I have seen émigrés with the humility typical of concentration camp survivors come to this country and happily accept anything that afforded a livelihood, the most demeaning jobs. But is it not rather strange that a man cannot be content with having escaped torture and death? As soon as he begins to enjoy his new security, the pride and vanity and arrogance that seemed to have been permanently obliterated begin to creep back, like beasts driven into hiding – but showing themselves with greater insolence, as if in reaction to the shame of having fallen so low. It is not rare in such circumstances to witness ingratitude and lack of appreciation."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
17. "But he could not renounce his infinite capacity for illusion at the very moment he needed it most... he saw fireflies where there were none."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
18. "Dan Sejarah pun seakan akan menggunjal nafas, capek dan gaek, dihadapan kini. Kini itu tak kunjung berhenti. Yang terpeluk oleh Sejarah hanya segala yang telah lewat, reruntuhan."
Author: Goenawan Mohamad
19. "She wanted to get some personal profit out of things, and she rejected as useless all that did not contribute to the immediate desires of her heart, being of a temperament more sentimental than artistic, looking for emotions, not landscapes."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
20. "Anyway, I've never been captain in 16 years in the NHL. But that didn't stop me being a leader in my own way."
Author: Guy Lafleur
21. "Our favorite film is Vertigo. Amy Eleni and I must watch it seventeen or eighteen times a year, and with each viewing our raptness grows looser and looser; we don't need the visuals anymore--one or the other of us can go into the kitchen halfway through and call out the dialogue while making up two cups of Horlicks. From the minute you see empty, beautiful, blond Madeleine Elster, you know she is doomed because she exists in a way that Scottie, the male lead, just doesn't. You know that Madeleine is in big trouble, because she's a vast wound in a landscape where wounds aren't allowed to stay open--people have to shut up and heal up. She's in trouble because the film works to a plan that makes trauma speak itself out, speak itself to excess until it dies; this film at the peak of its slyness, when people sweat and lick their lips excessively and pound their chests and grab their hair and twist their heads from side to side, performing this unspeakable torment."
Author: Helen Oyeyemi
22. "Las obras de los grandes poetas aún no han sido leídas por la humanidad -sólo los grandes poetas son capaces de leerlas-. Las masas, sin embargo, las leen como si leyeran las estrellas…; si hay suerte, como astrólogos, pero no como astrónomos. A la mayoría de las personas se les enseña a leer sólo para su propia comodidad, como si se les enseñará a contar para que puedan comprobar las cuentas y no ser engañados. Pero del leer como noble ejercicio intelectual no tienen idea; además, sólo hay una cosa que se puede llamar leer en el más alto sentido de la palabra: no aquello que nos adormece narcotizando nuestros más altos sentimientos, sino aquello a lo que hay que acercarse de puntillas, aquello a lo que dedicamos nuestras mejores horas de vigilia"."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
23. "Like many air travelers, I am aware that airplanes fly aided by capricious fairies and invisible strings."
Author: J. Maarten Troost
24. "Seth and Jenny after they've escaped Alexander in Mexico. Seth: "Here's what we need to do. Find a flat area, like a farm, a little bit out of the way where we can spend a little time." Seth unbuttoned his black fatigues.Jenny: "Seth, I think we have more urgent things to think about..."Seth: "I know." He pushed his pants down to his knees. "I want to show you something. Jenny: "I've seen it before."Seth: "Ha ha." Seth tugged back the leg of his boxer shorts to reveal a black band around one thigh with a circular device mounted on it."
Author: J.L. Bryan
25. "She'd told Bela that the feeling would ebb but never fully go away. It would form part of her landscape, wherever she went. She said that her mother's absence would always be present in her thoughts. She told Bela that there would never be an answer for why she'd gone."
Author: Jhumpa Lahiri
26. "I hope to be making television shows and films, and creating content that captivates Latinos. I try not to think about it too much, though. I'm more focused in the present."
Author: Jon Huertas
27. "Would I jump or would I burn? I guess I would jump, because then I wouldn't have to feel pain. On the other hand, maybe I would burn, because then I'd at least have a chance to somehow escape, and even if I couldn't, feeling pain is still better than not feeling, isn't it?"
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

33. "We had little or no emotion. We lacked the capacity to feel fear, to experience love, to enjoy the sensations of happiness and delight.The finest warriors are not only those who do not fear, but those who are without anger."
Author: Michael Scott
34. "I've an insatiable craving inside me that consumes everything and makes me regard the sufferings and joys of others only in their relationship to me, as food to sustain my spiritual powers. I am no longer capable of loosing my head in love, Ambition has been crushed in me by circumstances, but it has come out in another way, for ambition is nothing but a lust for power and my chief delight is to dominate those around me. To inspire in others love, devotion, fear - isn't that the first symptom and the supreme triumph of power? To cause another person suffering or joy, having no right to do so - isn't that the sweetest food of pride?"
Author: Mikhail Lermontov
35. "Deci mutatia a avut loc în epoca — mitica sau nu, putin îmi pasa, eu, ca om de stiinta, nu ma las impresionat de cuvinte — a avut loc în epoca imediat urmatoare izgonirii din Paradis. Pedeapsa de care vorbeste capitolul III din cartea Genezei aceasta a fost: amnezia. Corpul omenesc a uitat pur si simplu ca fusese înzestrat cu o functiune capitala: autoregenerarea celulelor..."
Author: Mircea Eliade
36. "Before I entered the service, all I did was take orders. Next thing I knew, I was giving them.Peacetime was one thing. Got a lot of wise guy recruits. But then the war started and the new men flooded in- young men, like you- and they were all saluting me, wanting me to tell them what to do. I could see the fear in their eyes. They acted as if I knew something about war that was classified. They thought I could keep them alive. You did too, didn't you?'Eddie had to admit he did.The Captain reached back and rubbed his neck. 'I couldn't, of course. I took my orders, too. But if I couldn't keep you alive, I thought I could at least keep you together. In the middle of a big war, you go looking for a small idea to believe in. When you find one, you hold it the way a soldier holds his crucifix when he's praying in a foxhole.For me, that little idea was what I told you guys every day. No one gets left behind."
Author: Mitch Albom
37. "Cinta itu hebat, bahkan lebih hebat dari dunia perkawinan itu. Doa adalah bagian penuturan cinta pada sebuah cita-cita yang belum kita capai. Dia bukan urusan Tuhan, melainkan urusan manusia. Dan Tuhan ada pada seberapa besar rasa cinta kita akan kebenaran itu. Nah, berdoalah dengan cinta, tapi jangan berdoa untuk cinta... Cinta itu dalam dirinya mengandung sebagian kecil rasionalitas, tapi penuh dengan benih rasa yang tidak perlu dihitung secara matematik mengapa dia ada."
Author: Munir

I had someone measure.""So?" Dorian repeated."Captain Westfall, how far do slaves make it from the mines when they try to escape?""Three feet," he muttered. "Endovier sentries usually shoot a man down before he's moved three feet."The Crown Prince's silence was not her desired effect. "You knew it was suicide," he said at last, the amusement gone. Perhaps it had been a bad idea to bring up the wall. "Yes."..."I never intended to escape."
Author: Sarah J. Maas
