7. "I did not care if Ella went t Princeton, if she was exceptionally pretty, if she grew up to marry a rich man, or really if she married at all - there were many incarnations of her I felt confident I could embrace, a hippie or a housewife or a career woman. But what I did care about, what I wanted most fervently, was for her to understand that hard work paid off, that decency begat decency, that humility was not a raincoat you occasionally pulled on when you thought conditions called for it, but rather a constant way of existing in the world, knowing that good luck and bad luck touched everyone and none of us was fully responsible for our fortunes or tragedies. Above all, I wanted my daughter to understand that many people were guided by bitterness and that it was best to avoid these individuals - their moods and behavior were a hornet's nest you had no possible reason to do anything other than bypass and ignore."
Author: Curtis Sittenfeld

"Amory took to writing poetry on spring afternoons, in the gardens of the big estates near Princeton, while swans made effective atmosphere in the artificial pools, and slow clouds sailed harmoniously above the willow.

Venía evidentemente de alguna fiesta y había tragado cantidad de vino, pues hacía eses de lado a lado del camino, tocando con la flauta una tonada melancólica. Grité un saludo, y sin volverse me hizo una seña estrafalaria. Al doblar el recodo se silueteó un instante sobre el pálido color lavanda de la tarde. Vi su sombrero andrajoso con las plumas al viento, los abultados bolsillos de su abrigo, las jaulas de mimbre llenas de soñolientas palomas a su espalda, y sobre la cabeza, dando vueltas y más vueltas a lo tonto, los puntitos minúsculos de las cetonias. Torció entonces la esquina y no quedó sino el cielo pálido con una luna nueva suspendida como una pluma de plata y el blando gorjeo de su flauta perdiéndose en el crepúsculo lejano."
Author: Gerald Durrell

18. "Now the various species of whales need some sort of popular comprehensive classification, if only an easy outline one for the present, hereafter to be filled in all its departments by subsequent laborers. As no better man advances to take this matter in hand, I hereupon offer my own poor endeavors. I promise nothing complete; because any human thing supposed to be complete, must for that very reason infallibly be faulty. I shall not pretend to a minute anatomical description of the various species, or - in this place at least - to much of any description. My object here is simply to project the draught of a systematization of cetology. I am the architect, not the builder. (moby dick chap 32 p131)"

Now that'sa song I'd request at Johnny Rockets!"

38. "I entered Princeton University as a graduate student in 1959, when the Department of Mathematics was housed in the old Fine Hall. This legendary facility was marvellous in stimulating interaction among the graduate students and between the graduate students and the faculty. The faculty offered few formal courses, and essentially none of them were at the beginning graduate level. Instead the students were expected to learn the necessary background material by reading books and papers and by organising seminars among themselves. It was a stimulating environment but not an easy one for a student like me, who had come with only a spotty background. Fortunately I had an excellent group of classmates, and in retrospect I think the "Princeton method" of that period was quite effective."
Author: Phillip A. Griffiths

Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
41. "I've got my own moral compass to steer byA guiding star beats a spirit in the skyAnd all the preaching voices -Empty vessels ring so loudAs they move among the crowdFools and thieves are well disguisedIn the temple and market placeLike a stone in the riverAgainst the floods of springI will quietly resistLike the willows in the windOr the cliffs along the oceanI will quietly resistI don't have faith in faithI don't believe in beliefYou can call me faithlessI still cling to hopeAnd I believe in loveAnd that's faith enough for meI've got my own spirit level for balanceTo tell if my choice is leaning up or downAnd all the shouting voicesTry to throw me off my courseSome by sermon, some by forceFools and thieves are dangerousIn the temple and market placeLike a forest bows to winterBeneath the deep white silenceI will quietly resistLike a flower in the desertThat only blooms at nightI will quietly resist"

Yeah, I want my stuff to be as good as I can conceivably make it, but I am not going to put that on my head"

48. "Não, agora nunca mais diria, de ninguém neste mundo, que eram isto ou aquilo. Sentia-se muito jovem; e, ao mesmo tempo, indizivelmente velha. Passava como uma navalha através de tudo; e ao mesmo tempo ficava de fora, olhando. Tinha a perpétua sensação, enquanto olhava os carros, de estar fora, longe e sozinha no meio do mar; sempre sentira que era muito, muito perigoso viver, por um só dia que fosse. Não que se julgasse inteligente, ou muito fora da comum. Nem podia saber como tinha atravessado a vida com os poucos dedos de conhecimento que lhe dera Fräulein Daniels. Não sabia nada; nem línguas, nem história; raramente lia um livro agora, exceto memórias, na cama; mas como a absorvia tudo aquilo, os carros passando; e não diria de Peter, não diria de si mesma: sou isto, sou aquilo."
Author: Virginia Woolf

Author: William Shakespeare
