1. "Je l'entends toujours. Alors que je repose mon stylographe et que je me dirige vers mon lit, je perçois l'archet qu'on tire sur le chevalet, et la musique qui s'élève dans le ciel nocturne. C'est lointain et à peine audible - mais c'est là! Un pizzicato. Un trémolo. Le style est impossible à à confondre avec un autre. C'est Sherlock Holmes. ll faut que ce soit lui. J'espère que c'est pour moi qu'il joue..."
Author: Anthony Horowitz
2. "An educator should consider that he has failed in his job if he has not succeeded in instilling some trace of a divine dissatisfaction with our miserable social environment."
Author: Anthony Standen
3. "Quel giorno avevo una sensazione struggente, come di un lutto anticipato. Ciò che avevo di più caro era stato schiacciato come un prato di fiori di campo, raso al suolo per fare posto a un giardino ben curato. Neppure quando studiavo negli Stati Uniti avevo mai provato nulla del genere. In tutti quegli anni mi ero tenuta saldamente aggrappata alla certezza che la mia casa, il mio paese mi appartanevano, e potevo tornarci ogni volta che volevo. E fu solo quando infine vi feci ritorno che compresi il vero significato dell'esilio. Camminando per quelle strade che amavo e ricordavo con tanto affetto, era come se stessi calpestando i miei ricordi."
Author: Azar Nafisi
4. "Yo no nací dichoso. De niño, mi himno favorito era: «Cansado del mundo y con el peso de mis pecados». A los cinco años yo pensaba que si había de vivir setenta no había pasado aún más que la catorceava parte de mi vida vital, y me parecía casi insoportable la enorme cantidad de aburrimiento que me aguardaba. En la adolescencia la vida me era odiosa, y estaba continuamente al borde del suicidio, del cual me libré gracias al deseo de saber más matemáticas. Hoy, por el contrario, gusto de la vida, y casi estoy por decir que cada año que pasa la encuentro más gustosa. Esto es debido, en parte, a haber descubierto cuáles eran las cosas que deseaba más y haber adquirido gradualmente muchas de ellas. En parte es debido también a haberme desprendido, felizmente, de ciertos deseos (la adquisición del conocimiento indudable acerca de algo) como esencialmente inasequibles. Pero en la mayor parte se debe a la preocupación, cada día menor, de mí mismo."
Author: Bertrand Russell
5. "Sai, negli ultimi mesi ho mangiato tante di quelle pesche in scatola, che ieri notte ho praticamente cacato una crostata."
Author: Brian K. Vaughan
6. "Il dolore, pensò, dovrebbe avere un peso, un suo particolare peso specifico, dovrebbe essere visibile come un minerale che non si trova in nessun altro luogo, una valuta non convertibile in cui calcolare i cadaveri, il sangue, le ferite, le malattie, le umiliazioni, e che rimanesse sul campo di battaglia, nelle prigioni, sui patiboli e negli ospedali, un monumento che avesse sempre e dovunque lo stesso significato."
Author: Cees Nooteboom
7. "If I already intuitively "get" what you're trying to tell me, why should I obsess about remembering it? The danger, of course, is that what sounds like common sense often isn't.... It's your job, as a communicator, to expose the parts of your message that are uncommon sense.(p.72)"
Author: Chip Heath
8. "If You Have A Lemon, Make A LemonadeThat is what a great educator does. But the fool does the exact opposite. If he findsthat life has handed him a lemon, he gives up and says: "I'm beaten. It is fate. I haven'tgot a chance." Then he proceeds to rail against the world and indulge in an orgy of selfpity.But when the wise man is handed a lemon, he says: "What lesson can I learn fromthis misfortune? How can I improve my situation? How can I turn this lemon into alemonade?"
Author: Dale Carnegie

Author: Daniel Coyle
11. "L'amore aveva lastricato questa famiglia di cadaveri sui quali sgambettava un numero esponenziale di marmocchi, e tutte queste donne erano pronte a ricominciare da zero, con il cuore puro, a incantarsi per l'improvviso rossore sulle guance incavate di Thérèse, identificato immediatamente come il segno dell'amore, quando io avevo sperato in una innocente tubercolosi.."
Author: Daniel Pennac

Author: Francesca Rossi

Author: Frank Luntz
18. "Avrà magari ragione il professor Weinberger a sperare che <> finisca per essere più intelligente di noi, ma la storia ideologica del XX secolo è purtroppo piena di esempi in cui individui e teorie <> hanno poi innescato conformismi, deprimenti in democrazia, tragici nei sistemi totalitari."
Author: Gianni Riotta
19. "Countries with a high percentage of nonbelievers are among the freest, most stable, best-educated, and healthiest nations on earth. When nations are ranked according to a human-development index, which measures such factors as life expectancy, literacy rates, and educational attainment, the five highest-ranked countries -- Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands -- all have high degrees of nonbelief. Of the fifty countires at the bottom of the index, all are intensly religious. The nations with the highest homicide rates tend to be more religious; those with the greatest levels of gender equality are the least religious. These associations say nothing about whether atheism leads to positive social indicators or the other way around. But the idea that atheists are somehow less moral, honest, or trustworthy have been disproven by study after study."
Author: Greg Graffin
20. "The tumultuous noise resolved itself now into the disorderly mingling of many voices, the gride of many wheels, the creaking of wagons, and the staccato of hoofs."
Author: H.G. Wells

Author: Holly Hunter
22. "Several passages induced the shiver of aesthetic bliss in my spine that Nabokov famously described as the indicator of good and true writing. The whole thing is by turns hilarious and hilariously sad, artfully pin-holed with melancholy (my favorite drink)… Empty the Sun is an impressive achievement, as well as an excellent and I believe as yet unused name for a rock band."
Author: James Greer
23. "Mais ce qui ne passera pas, c'est cette impression de découverte de soi que la lecture de Rousseau procure et qui est différente de celle de saint Augustin; car le péché n'est au fond ni l'homo peccator, ni l'homo poenitens, ni l'homo innocens, comme j'ai semblé le dire. Ce n'est pas le fauve ou le renard, le lion, ni même l'âne de la fable qu'il retrouve en nous. C'est le presque-saint, l'ange titubant, le menteur affamé de sincérité, le médiocre hanté par l'idée du parfait. En somme, ce n'est ni le saint, le héros, ni le pécheur ou le pervers : c'est le troisième homme, pécheur inconscient, fils prodigue et qui se pardonne généreusement. C'est le pauvre diable. C'est le pauvre homme. C'est l'homme.Est-ce là le suprême détour de l'orgueil! Est-ce l'humilité vraie sans la vanité de se savoir humble!"
Author: Jean Guitton
24. "I heard a rapid alternation of notes,a vibrating staccato of an ancient instrument,nearly as old as nature herself, a cricket singingin my garden last night, the first time this year. When turning my garden's soil,I often uncover crickets, curmudgeons that scramble to find solitudeand cover from the light,but I rarely hear theirancient song 'till near summer's end. Although the wind is now lofting the branchesand rustling the leaves,the evening sun still warms my face. And my garden still blooms fullwith pink-papered hollyhocksand blue, green spikes of lavender,and roses, bright pinks and yellows, all glowing from sunshine-swelled canes, and zinnias, rainbow-shingled orbs,and more. And yet, I am already dreading the coming of fall, all dressed in small rags of red, yellow, and orange. I know that my summer garden is nearing its end,as hailed by the cricket's song."
Author: Jeffrey A. White
25. "The trick for business professionals, and for educators, is to present bodies of information so compelling that the audience does this (encoding) on their own, spontaneously engaging in deep and elaborate encoding."
Author: John Medina
26. "Fece una risata e mi circondò con un braccio, mentre rimanevamo seduti l'uno accanto all'altra. Poi aggiunse: "Continuo a pensare a un fiume da qualche parte là fuori, con l'acqua che scorre velocissima. E quelle due persone nell'acqua, che cercano di tenersi strette, più che possono, ma alla fine devono desistere. La corrente è troppo forte. Devono mollare, separarsi. E' la stessa cosa per noi. E' un peccato, Kath, perché ci siamo amati per tutta la vita. Ma alla fine non possiamo rimanere insieme per sempre.""
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro

31. "Feelings are indicators, not dictators. They can indicate where your heart is in the moment, but that doesn't mean they have the right to dictate your behavior and boss you around. You are more than the sum total of your feelings and perfectly capable of that little gift . . . called self-control."
Author: Lysa TerKeurst
32. "The war takes place in black and white. For those on the sidelines that is. For those who are actually in it there are many colours, excessive colours, too bright, too red and orange, too liquid and incandescent, but for the others the war is like a newsreel - grainy, smeared, with bursts of staccato noise and large numbers of grey-skinned people rushing or plodding or falling down, everything elsewhere."
Author: Margaret Atwood
33. "The best and most clear indicator that we are progressing spiritually and coming unto Christ is the way we treat other people."
Author: Marvin J. Ashton
34. "We are so well trained that we are our own domesticator. We are an autodomesticated animal. We can now domesticate ourselves according to the same belief system we were given, and using the same system of punishment and reward. We punish ourselves when we don't follow the rules according to our belief system; we reward ourselves when we are the "good boy" or "good girl"."
Author: Miguel Ruiz

"Nu pot sa sufar, suflet miscator,femeie care-mi izvoraste din coasta si-n pietre demelancolie, arzator, cu timpla dai,ca-n inima mea proastaPasul tau zvelt din glezna measa-l rupi nu pot sa sufar, nu, fara durereMi-e sufletul culcat pe colti de lupi.Devine locdunga subtire de tacere si de sub palma lata-a mea,umarul tau cu suierat de tren sesmulge-asurzitor spre-un tunel, spre vid, spre hau,spre-un chip neinventat, traind in viitorNu pot sa sufar, nu, sa treaca intre noi reci dorurilece le misti doar tu nici intimplarile caniste bivoli stinsi, greoi, si nici distantele sa treaca.Nu."
Author: Nichita Stănescu
38. "All of us have to be prevaricators, hypocrites, and liars every day of our lives; otherwise the social structure would fall into pieces the first day. We must act in one another's presence just as we must wear clothes. It is for the best"
Author: O. Henry
39. "Le persone felici cucinano bene e creano cose eleganti. Chi è felice non ha voglia di mangiare carne in scatola e frattaglie tritate. Ha voglia di mettere un vestito che gli doni, non scarpe vecchie e golfoni. Forse lo stato d'animo non influisce sul clima, ma non è detto."
Author: Peter Cameron
40. "So one reason the science educators panic at the first sign of public rebellion is that they fear exposure of the implicit religious content in what they are teaching."
Author: Phillip E. Johnson
41. "Individuals are not stable things, they are fleeting. Chromosomes too are shuffled into oblivion, like hands of cards soon after they are dealt. But the cards themselves survive the shuffling. The cards are the genes. The genes are not destroyed by crossing-over, they merely change partners and march on. Of course they march on. That is their business. They are the replicators and we are their survival machines. When we have served our purpose we are cast aside. But genes are denizens of geological time: genes are forever."
Author: Richard Dawkins
42. "Was there to be any end to the gradual improvement in the techniques and artifices used by the replicators to ensure their own continuation in the world? There would be plenty of time for improvement. What weird engines of self-preservation would the millennia bring forth? Four thousand million years on, what was to be the fate of the ancient replicators? They did not die out, for they are past masters of the survival arts. But do not look for them floating loose in the sea; they gave up that cavalier freedom long ago. Now they swarm in huge colonies, safe inside gigantic lumbering robots, sealed off from the outside world, communicating with it by tortuous indirect routes, manipulating it by remote control. They are in you and in me; they created us, body and mind; and their preservation is the ultimate rationale for our existence. They have come a long way, those replicators. Now they go by the name of genes, and we are their survival machines."
Author: Richard Dawkins
43. "If I could embed a locator chip in my child right now, I know I would do that. Some people call that Big Brother; I call it being a father."
Author: Scott McNealy
44. "«Pacatul tine de etica doar in cazul in care esueaza pe acest concept cu ajutorul pocaintei...Etica [nu este] niciodata observatoare, ci acuzatoare, judecatoare, in actiune.» Intelegem, deci, ca etica nu are o componenta maieutica, cum aveau predica si conversatia socratica - ea acuza, judeca si razbuna universalul. Punctul ingust de vedere al eticii priveste problema pacatului prin notiunea de pocainta: motto-ul unei asemenea atitudini este «am pacatuit, deci trebuie sa ma pocaiesc». De ce este meschina o asemenea atitudine? Pentru ca intentia sa este clara: «trebuie sa ma pocaiesc, pentru a pacatui din nou». Este implicit ca nu se rezolva nimic prin aceasta incadrare etica a pacatului (care face o pauza simbolica, pentru a se reimprosapta, inainte de a-si urma obiceiul) si se intelege mai usor de ce Haufniensis leaga, intr-o nota explicativa, pocainta de repetare sau de «pasiunea absurdului»."
Author: Ştefan Bolea
45. "Yes. Can you print these pictures and make sure the others have copies? Particularly Barry. He's Locator in Chief on this one." "I'll do it right now. I'm packing a Fujitsu ScanSnap. Great little on-the-go machine."
Author: Stephen King
46. "When he[Thresh] shouts, I jump, never having heard him speak above a mutter. "What'd you do to that little girl? You kill her?" Clove is scrambling backwards on all fours, like a frantic insect, too shocked to even call for Cato. "No! No, it wasn't me!" "You said her name. I heard you. You kill her?" Another thought brings a fresh wave of rage to his features. "You cut her up like you were about to do to this girl here?" "No! No, I-" Clove sees the stone, about the size of a small loaf of bread in Thresh's hand and loses it. "Cato!" she screeches. "Cato!" "Clove!" I hear Cato's answer, but he's too far away, I can tell that much, to do her any good. What was he doing? Trying to get Foxface or Peeta? Or had he been lying in wait for Thresh and just badly misjudged his location? Thresh brings the rock down hard against Clove's temple. It's not bleeding, but I can see the dent in her skull and I know that she's a goner."
Author: Suzanne Collins
47. "Clove!" Cato's voice is much nearer now. I can tell by the pain in it that he sees her on the ground. "You better run now, Fire Girl," says Thresh. I don't need to be told twice. I flip over and my feet dig into the hard-packed earth as I run away from Thresh and Clove and the sound of Cato's voice. Only when I reach the woods do I turn back for an instant. Thresh and both large backpacks are vanishing over the edge of the plain into the area I've never seen. Cato kneels beside Clove, spear in hand, begging her to stay with him. In a moment, he will realize it's futile, she can't be saved."
Author: Suzanne Collins
48. "The best entrepreneurs I've ever met are all good communicators. It's perhaps one of the very few unifying factors."
Author: Tim Ferriss
49. "Karma has been a pop culture term for ages. But really, what the heck is it?Karma is not an inviolate engine of cosmic punishment. Rather, it is a neutral sequence of acts, results, and consequences.Receiving misfortune does not necessarily indicate that one has committed evil. But it is a sufficient indicator of something else.And that something else can be anything, as long as it is a logical consequence of what has come before.Consider: if you fall into a well, you are not a bad person who deserves to suffer—you are merely someone who took a wrong step. Or someone who had one drink too many. Or got a head rush due to poor circulation. Or forgot to wear your glasses. Or—The reasons are plentiful, and all plausible. But the chain of cause and effect goes way, way back into the deepest hoariest recesses of your personal past.So never rule out retribution. But never expect it."
Author: Vera Nazarian
50. "Fra cento anni, d'altronde, pensavo giunta sulla soglia di casa, le donne non saranno più il sesso protetto. Logicamente condivideranno tutte le attività e tutti gli sforzi che una volta erano stati loro negati. La balia scaricherà il carbone. La fruttivendola guiderà la macchina. Ogni presupposto basato sui fatti osservati quando le donne erano il sesso protetto sarà scomparso; ad esempio (in strada stava passando un plotone di soldati) l'idea che le donne, i preti e i giardinieri vivano più a lungo. Togliete questa protezione, esponete le donne agli stessi sforzi e alle stesse attività, lasciatele diventare soldati, marinari, camionisti e scaricatori di porto, e vi accorgerete che le donne muoiono assai più giovani e assai più presto degli uomini; cosicché si dirà: "Oggi ho visto una donna", come si diceva "Oggi ho visto un aereo". Può accadere qualunque cosa quando la femminilità cesserà di essere un'occupazione protetta, pensavo, aprendo la porta."
Author: Virginia Woolf
