111. "Tenho a náusea física da humanidade vulgar, que é, aliás, a única que há. E, capricho, às vezes, em aprofundar essa náusea, como se pode provocar um vómito para aliviar a vontade de vomitar.A intriga, a maledicência, a prosápia falada do que se não ousou fazer, o contentamento de cada pobre bicho vestido com a consciência inconsciente da própria alma, a sexualidade sem lavagem, as piadas como cócegas de macaco, a horrorosa ignorância da inimportância do que são..."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
112. "Come on, who saw what happened?""I did," I volenteered."Well?""Buttwipe wanted to know what jerkface was looking at." I turned turned eyes on the bloody and dirt-smeared brawlers. "You were barely 3-inches apart. Couldn't you see that you were both looking at each other?"The teacher's face reddened. "Who do you think you are? Jerry Seinfeld?""You must be confused with another student," I told him. "My name is Capricorn Anderson."
Author: Gordon Korman

Author: Hanif Kureishi
115. "I was born the 26th of December. . . Arrive by dint of perseverance, but step by step. . . Tenancy to exaggerate the importance of earthly life. Avaricious of self. Constant in their affections and their hatreds. . . Yes, the Capricorn is a beast of solitude. Slow, steady, and persevering. Lives on several levels at once. Thinks in circles. Fascinated by death. Ever climbing, climbing. In search of the edelweiss, presumably. Or could it be immortelle? Knows no mother. Only "the mothers". Laughs little and usually on the wrong side of the face. . . Speaks truthfully instead of kindly. Metaphysics, abstractions, electromagnetic displays. Dives to the depths. Sees stars, comets, and asteroids where others see only moles, warts, and pimples. Feeds on himself when tired of playing the man-eating shark. A paranoiac. An ambulatory paranoiac. But constant in his affections - and his hatreds. Ouais!"
Author: Henry Miller
116. "Best followed now is this life, by hurrying, like itself, to a close.Few things remain.He was repulsed in efforts after a pension by certain caprices of law. His scars proved his only medals. He dictated a little book, the record of his fortunes. But long ago it faded out of print--himself out of being--his name out of memory. He died the same day that the oldest oak on his native hills was blown down."
Author: Herman Melville
117. "The constant flux and caprice of mental events do not admit of the establishment of stable experimental conditions."
Author: Hermann Ebbinghaus
118. "Nos sentimos tentados a creerlos caprichos nuestros, creaciones propias, vemos vacilar y disolverse la frontera entre nosotros y la naturaleza, y adquirimos conciencia de un estado de ánimo en el que no sabemos si las imágenes en nuestra retina provienen de impresiones exteriores o interiores. En ningún otro momento descubrimos con tanta facilidad la medida en que somos creadores, en que nuestra alma participa constantemente en la recreación de la vida. Una misma divinidad invisible actúa en nosotros y en la naturaleza, y si el mundo exterior desapareciera, cualquiera de nosotros sería capaz de reconstruirlo, porque los montes y los ríos, los árboles y las hojas, las raíces y las flores, todo lo creado en la naturaleza, está ya prefigurado en nosotros: proviene del alma, cuya esencia es eterna, y escapa a nuestro conocimiento, pero que se nos hace patente como fuerza amorosa y creadora."
Author: Hermann Hesse
119. "New York City is the most fatally fascinating thing in America. She sits like a great witch at the gate of the country, showing her alluring white face, and hiding her crooked hands and feet under the folds of her wide garments,--constantly enticing thousands from far within, and tempting those who come from across the seas to go no farther. And all these become the victims of her caprice. Some she at once crushes beneath her cruel feet; others she condemns to a fate like that of galley slaves; a few she favors and fondles, riding them high on the bubbles of fortune; then with a sudden breath she blows the bubbles out and laughs mockingly as she watches them fall."
Author: James Weldon Johnson
120. "Mais alguns segundos e a negra vai cantar. Isso parece inevitável, tão forte é a necessidade dessa música: nada pode interrompê-la, nada que venha desse tempo no qual o mundo despencou; ela cessará por si mesma no momento exato. Se amo essa bela voz é sobretudo por isso: não é nem por seu volume, nem por sua tristeza; é porque ela é o acontecimento que tantas notas prepararam, de tão longe, morrendo para que ela possa nascer. E no entanto estou intranquilo; bastaria muito pouco para que o disco parasse: uma mola que se quebrasse, um capricho do primo Adolphe. Como é estranho, como é comovente que essa rigidez seja tão frágil. Nada pode interrompê-la e tudo pode aniquilá-la."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
121. "Dame Edna is that rarest sighting in our time of the absolute comic, an inspired personification of caprice whose comedy answered the primal call to take the audience for a tumble."
Author: John Lahr
122. "As love without esteem is capricious and volatile; esteem without love is languid and cold."
Author: Jonathan Swift
123. "Science is all about proving theories and understanding the universe. Science folds everything into neat logical well-explained packages. The fey are magical capricious illogical and unexplainable. Science cannot prove the existence of faeries so naturally we do not exist. That type of nonbelief is fatal to faries."
Author: Julie Kagawa
124. "En la película, la pobre Keira Knightley tiene que pasar por toda esa maldita tragedia con James McAvoy, pero si Keira no hubiera sido atractiva, el nunca se habría fijado en ella y no le habría roto el corazón. Al fin y al cabo todos sabemos eso de que "es mejor haber amado y perdido...", todo ese rollo es una mierda.Esta teoría se aplica a un montón de películas. Piensa en ello. Si Kate winslet hubiese sido la "Duff", Leonardo DiCaprio no se habría enamorado de ella en Titanic y nosotros nos habríamos ahorrado un montón de lágrimas. Si Nicole Kidman hubiese sido fea en ColdMountain, no tendría que haberse preocupado por Jude Law cuando se fue a la guerra. La lista es interminable."
Author: Kody Keplinger
125. "Ese día aprendi dos cosas: que el azar es caprichoso y que siempre hay que llevar el casco bien amarrado."
Author: Laura Gallego García
126. "Cine doreste sa se apropie de Dostoievski trebuie sa îndeplineasca o serie de exercitio spiritualia: trebuie sa traiasca ore, zile, ani întregi în sânul evidentelor contradictorii. Nu exista alta solutie. Numai asa se poate întrevedea ca timpul nu are una, ci doua dimensiuni sau chiar mai multe, ca legile nu exista de-o vesnicie, ci ne sunt date, date pentru ca pacatul sa se poata petrece, ca nu faptele noastre, ci credinta noastra ne salveaza, ca moartea lui Socrate poate narui cumplitul «doi ori doi fac patru», ca Dumnezeu nu pretinde decât imposibilul, ca ratoiul cel urât se poate preschimba într-o frumoasa lebada alba, ca totul începe, dar nu se sfârseste aici, ca si capriciul are dreptul la garantii, ca fantasticul este mai real decât normalul, ca viata - este moarte, iar moartea - înseamna viata, si alte adevaruri de acelasi gen, care se masoara cu ochii lor ciudati si cumpliti din toate paginile operelor lui Dostoievski."
Author: Lev Shestov
127. "But keeping secrets is a discipline. I never use to think of myself as a good liar, but after having had some practice I had adopted the prevaricator's credo that one doesn't so much fabricate a lie as marry it. A successful lie cannot be brought into this world and capriciously abandoned; like any committed relationship it must be maintained, and with far more devotion than the truth, which carries on being carelessly true without any help. By contrast, my lie needed me as much as I needed it, and so demanded the constancy of wedlock: Till death do us part."
Author: Lionel Shriver
128. "I had this extraordinarily bizarre moment when, two Fridays ago, my missus gave birth to our second child at 11am and by the same time the following day I was sitting around a table with Ridley Scott, Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio in Rabat in Morocco, rehearsing a scene we were going to shoot the next day."
Author: Mark Strong
129. "Washington politicians basically view the People as a capricious and dangerous enemy, a dumb mob whose only interesting quality happens to be their power to take away politicians' jobs... When the government sees its people as the enemy, sooner or later that feeling gets to be mutual. And that's when the real weirdness begins."
Author: Matt Taibbi
130. "Classic art was the art of necessity: modern romantic art bears the stamp of caprice and chance."
Author: Max Eastman
131. "Photography is without mercy--though it's nonsense to say it does not lie. Rather, it lies in a particular, capricious way which makes beggars of ministers and gods of cat's meat men."
Author: Nick Harkaway
132. "To get asked to do stuff like 'United States Of Tara' and 'Caprica' is terrific. I can't complain."
Author: Patton Oswalt
133. "I used this line to demonstrate how important colors are in movies: It's not a caprice."
Author: Pedro Almodovar
134. "The attitude which the man in the street unconsciously adopts towards science is capricious and varied. At one moment he scorns the scientist for a highbrow, at another anathematizes him for blasphemously undermining his religion; but at the mention of a name like Edison he falls into a coma of veneration. When he stops to think, he does recognize, however, that the whole atmosphere of the world in which he lives is tinged by science, as is shown most immediately and strikingly by our modern conveniences and material resources. A little deeper thinking shows him that the influence of science goes much farther and colors the entire mental outlook of modern civilised man on the world about him."
Author: Percy Williams Bridgman
135. "Quiero è un verbo sorprendente, che vuol dire tutto. È volere, desiderare, amare, chiedere ed è prediligere. Di volta in volta, secondo il tono che gli vien dato, esprime la più imperativa delle passioni o il più lieve dei capricci. È un ordine o una preghiera, una dichiarazione o un assenso. Talora, non è che ironia."
Author: Pierre Louÿs
136. "A caprice is handled like a stew, and the pepper is added at the last minute."
Author: Rachilde
137. "The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."
Author: Richard Dawkins
138. "Let those who wish have their respectability- I wanted freedom, freedom to indulge in whatever caprice struck my fancy, freedom to search in the farthermost corners of the earth for the beautiful, the joyous, and the romantic."
Author: Richard Halliburton
139. "Speech baffled my machine. Helen made all well-formed sentences. But they were hollow and stuffed--linguistic training bras. She sorted nouns from verbs, but, disembodied, she did not know the difference between thing and process, except as they functioned in clauses. Her predications were all shotgun weddings. Her ideas were as decorative as half-timber beams that bore no building load.She balked at metaphor. I felt the annoyance of her weighted vectors as they readjusted themselves, trying to accommodate my latest caprice. You're hungry enough to eat a horse. A word from a friend ties your stomach in knots. Embarrassment shrinks you, amazement strikes you dead. Wasn't the miracle enough? Why do humans need to say everything in speech's stockhouse except what they mean?"
Author: Richard Powers
140. "Who was more conscious than the soldier of capricious fortune, of the random roll of the dice?"
Author: Robert Galbraith
141. "For him morality was neither conformism nor philosophic wisdom, but living the infinite fullness of possibilities. He believed in morality's capacity for intensification, in stages of moral experience, and not merely, as most people do, in stages of moral understanding, as if it were something cut-and-dried for which people were just not pure enough. He believed in morality without believing in any specific moral system. Morality is generally understood to be a sort of police regulations for keeping life in order, and since life does not obey even these, they come to look as if they were really impossible to live up to and accordingly, in this sorry way, not really an ideal either. But morality must not be reduced to this level. Morality is imagination. This was what he wanted to make Agathe see. And his second point was: Imagination is not arbitrary. Once imagination is left to caprice, there is a price to pay."
Author: Robert Musil
142. "In the face of God's obvious inadequacies, the pious have generally held that one cannot apply earthly norms to the Creator of the universe. This argument loses its force the moment we notice that the Creator who purports to be beyond human judgment is consistently ruled by human passions— jealousy, wrath, suspicion, and the lust to dominate. A close study of our holy books reveals that the God of Abraham is a ridiculous fellow—capricious, petulant, and cruel—and one with whom a covenant is little guarantee of health or happiness. If these are the characteristics of God, then the worst among us have been created far more in his image than we ever could have hoped."
Author: Sam Harris
143. "True sleep eluded me. Morpheus is a capricious god; he comes easily to some and only with greatest difficulty to others. To lure him, it is best to pretend disinterest. Engage the mind in some pursuit unrelated to what is truly desired and allow no distraction from it. For me, nothing works so well as a walk through Rome."
Author: Sara Poole
144. "Better to choose a limit capriciously than to have none."
Author: Thomas Hardy
145. "Or was he merely a mollycoddled favorite, enjoying capriciously prejudiced love? Schenback was inclined to believe the latter. Inborn in nearly every artist's nature is a voluptuous, treacherous tendency to accept the injustice if it creates beauty and to grant sympathy and homage to aristocratic preferences."
Author: Thomas Mann
146. "Most of my married friends now have children, the rewards of which appear to be exclusively intangible and, like the mysteries of some gnostic sect, incommunicable to outsiders. In fact it seems from the outside as if these people have joined a dubious cult: they claim to be much happier and more fulfilled than ever before, even though they live in conditions of appalling filth and degradation, deprived of the most basic freedoms and dignity, and owe unquestioning obedience to a capricious and demented master."
Author: Tim Kreider
147. "An artist is the magician put among men to gratify--capriciously--their urge for immortality. The temples are built and brought down around him, continuously and contiguously, from Troy to the fields of Flanders. If there is any meaning in any of it, it is in what survives as art, yes even in the celebration of tyrants, yes even in the celebration of nonentities. What now of the Trojan War if it had been passed over by the artist's touch? Dust. A forgotten expedition prompted by Greek merchants looking for new markets. A minor redistribution of broken pots. But it is we who stand enriched, by a tale of heroes, of a golden apple, a wooden horse, a face that launched a thousand ships--and above all, of Ulysses, the wanderer, the most human, the most complete of all heroes--husband, father, son, lover, farmer, soldier, pacifist, politician, inventor and adventurer..."
Author: Tom Stoppard
148. "Capri on the Amalfi Coast in Italy is my ultimate holiday destination."
Author: Vidal Sassoon
149. "Memory is the seamstress, and a capricious one at that. Memory runs her needle in and out, up and down, hither and thither. We know not what comes next, or what follows after. Thus, the most ordinary movement in the world, such as sitting down at a table and pulling the inkstand towards one, may agitate a thousand odd, disconnected fragments, now bright, now dim, hanging and bobbing and dipping and flaunting, like the underlinen of a family of fourteen on a line in a gale of wind. Instead of being a single, downright, bluff piece of work of which no man need feel ashamed, our commonest deeds are set about with a fluttering and flickering of wings, a rising and falling of lights."
Author: Virginia Woolf
150. "A regime that can suspend or abrogate the constitution and run the country on its whims and caprice should be ashamed of bringing on its lips the word "law". It is like prescribing a punishment for adultery after raping the country. It is like saying that Holy Quran is suspended nobody can escape from the Hadees."
Author: Zulfikar Ali Bhutto

Children do not grow up all of a piece; look for the child of seven, especially to take many backward glances at the way he has come, while bounds and leaps unevenly ahead in his growth."
