1. "The Historian and the Man of Science alike may be said to traffic with the dead. Cuvier has imparted flesh and motion and appetites to the defunct Megatherium, whilst the living ears of M.M. Michelet and Renan, of Mr. Carlyle and the Brothers Grimm, have heard the bloodless cries of the vanished and given them voices. I myself, with the aid of the imagination, have worked a little in that line, have ventriloquised, have lent my voice to, and mixt my life with, those past voices and lives whose resuscitation in our own lives as warnings, as examples, as the life of the past persisting in us, is the business of every thinking man and woman."
Author: A.S. Byatt

Author: Abraham Pais
3. "Unul dintre dezastele nea?teptate ale epocii moderne este acela ca accesul incomparabil la informa?ie a venit cu pre?ul incapacita?ii noastre de a ne concentra cu adevarat asupra vreunui lucru. Gândirea profunda, introspectiva, care a generat multe dintre cele mai importante realizari ale omenirii este ?inta unui atac fara precedent. Întotdeauna avem prin preajma un aparat care ne garanteaza un refugiu fascinant ?i lasciv din fa?a realita?ii. Sentimentele ?i gândurile pe care am omis sa le traim în timp ce ne uitam la ecranele noastre î?i gasesc debu?eul în tresariri involuntare ?i în capacitatea noastra tot mai scazuta de a adormi când trebuie."
Author: Alain De Botton

Author: Aleksandar Hemon
6. "No one was ever born without that light or flame of life. Some event, some person stifles or drowns it altogether. I was always tempted to resuscitate such men by my own joyousness or luminosity.When I break glasses in a night club, as the Russians do, when my unconscious breaks out in wild rebellions, it is against life which has crippled these idealistic, romantic men. I respect these men, cold, pure, faithful, devoted, moral, delicate, sensitive, and unequal to life, more than I respect the tough-minded ones who return three blows to one received, who kill those who hurt them."
Author: Anaïs Nin
7. "Orice animal de prada ajunge mormintul viu a inca o mie de alti pradatori si nu rezista in timp decit cu pretul unui lung sir de martirii. Inteligenta mareste capacitatea de a suferii, atingind la om gradul cel mai inalt."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
8. "You're April's closest friend. I wasn't expecting you to fall into bed with me, but the two of you haven't exactlybeen living a chaste lifestyle. "I was". My voice is small."What?""Chaste.

Author: Bethany Griffin

"A stack of children's books stood ready by René's bedside, and as Picard had begun the paternal duty of reading his boy to sleep, he had been impressed with his scion's growing vocabulary and seemingly insatiable appetite for narratives. By the time he cracked open the sixth tome of the evening's recitation, he began to question whether it would be unethical to let Crusher use a mild hypospray to hasten the boy's descent into slumber."
Author: David Mack
14. "Number 1 was the hardest to think about now. After. But Blake let himself go there as Chaos pressed into the deepest punctures.Blake liked the train station because the trains offered reliable percussion for the songs he played in his head. When Livia had first stepped onto the platform, Blake had tried his hardest not to stare. He knew moneyed people didn't like their women getting ogled by the homeless. But she was so friendly, even in this place where people built their own personal bubbles and stayed in them. When she smiled she looked like a walking ray of the sunshine he had to avoid.Her eyes had found his and shocked him. Blake was used to the blank, anesthetized eyes of those looking everywhere but at him. Her smile was resuscitation for his soul.Me! She sees me."
Author: Debra Anastasia

Author: E.L. Doctorow
18. "Incidentally her head ached and her shoulders ached and her lungs ached and the ankle-bones of both feet ached quite excruciatingly. But nothing of her felt permanently incapacitated except her noble expression. Like a strip of lip-colored lead suspended from her poor little nose by two tugging wire-gray wrinkles her persistently conscientious sickroom smile seemed to be whanging aimlessly against her front teeth. The sensation certainly was very unpleasant."
Author: Eleanor Hallowell Abbott
19. "His supervisor, a well-liked ranger by the name of Dick McLaren, gave Randy a line of advice to which he would adhere for the rest of his career: 'The best way to teach the public isn't with a citation, it's with communication."

Author: George Eliot
24. "Time's up. Excellent work. All the rational solutions came from the aspies. Everyone else was incapacitated by emotion."
Author: Graeme Simsion
25. "This world is a place of business. What an infinite bustle! I am awaked almost every night by the panting of the locomotive. It interrupts my dreams. There is no sabbath. It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. It is nothing but work, work, work. I cannot easily buy a blank-book to write thoughts in; they are commonly ruled for dollars and cents. An Irishman, seeing me making a minute in the fields, took it for granted that I was calculating my wages. If a man was tossed out of a window when an infant, and so made a cripple for life, or scared out of his wits by the Indians, it is regretted chiefly because he was thus incapacitated for—business! I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself, than this incessant business."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
26. "All that is left to bring you pain, are the memories. If you face those, you'll be free. You can't spend the rest of your life hiding from yourself; always afraid that your memories will incapacitate you, and they will if you continue to bury them."

Author: J.R. Ward
29. "Every sign, linguistic or nonlinguistic, spoken or written (in the usual sense of this opposition), as a small or large unity, can be cited, put between quotation marks; thereby it can break with every given context, and engender infinitely new contexts in an absolutely nonsaturable fashion. This does not suppose that the mark is valid outside its context, but on the contrary that there are only contexts without any center of absolute anchoring. This citationality, duplication, or duplicity, this iterability of the mark is not an accident or anomaly, but is that (normal/abnormal) without which a mark could no longer even have a so-called "normal" functioning. What would a mark be that one could not cite? And whose origin could not be lost on the way?"
Author: Jacques Derrida
30. "Perhaps the most powerful and appealing aspect of another's words, however, is simply their convenience. Whether distilled in the briefest apophthegm, or spread out across some voluminous tome, the thought is ready-made, the heavy lifting done. It's there to be used like a weapon or tool, and as time wanders on, seemingly leaving us fewer and fewer new things to say, it becomes ever more useful. As technology moves forward, as well, it also becomes much easier. Indeed, in this "information age" where so much is available to so many so quickly that enlightenment nearly verges on light pollution, it can sometimes appear that expression has been reduced to nothing more than a mad race to unearth and claim references. As such, the citation is also there to be donned, like some article of fashion from which we may reap the praise of discriminating taste without ever exerting ourself in the actual toil of manufacture."
Author: Jasper Siegel Seneschal
31. "From time to time, I need a rest from the exercitation of my intellect."
Author: Jean Stafford
32. "A ?ti anumite lucruri pe de rost î?i confera capacitatea unei în?elegeri superioare."
Author: Jean Claude Carrière
33. "Am oroare de toata aceasta comedie sociala pe care o jucam.Aceasta odioasa comedie a disimularilor.Fiecare joaca un personaj si aproape niciodata nu esti in exterior,adica in actiuni si cuvinte,asa cum esti in realitate.Si asta pentru ca in chiar natura omului e o incapacitate de a se exterioriza.Tot ce iese din noi se falsifica ori se degradeaza."
Author: Jeni Acterian
34. "But there's a sacredness which is not of thought, nor of a feeling resuscitated by thought. It is not recognizable by thought nor can it be utilized by thought. Thought cannot formulate it. But there's a sacredness, untouched by any symbol or word. It is not communicable. It is a fact."
Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
35. "Well, opera began with an intent to resuscitate Greek drama, that is, modern opera as we know it."
Author: John Eaton
36. "The quest for seizing that amygdala moment, those crushing seconds of unbearable, incapacitating shock, seizing these moments and not letting them go, dragging them out for as long as is operationally necessary, that, said Sid, is the aim of the Bucha effect."
Author: Jon Ronson
37. "A twinge at the edge of her lips and she continued, the soft, slow lilt of recitation: "Ancient walls that sing the distant hours."
Author: Kate Morton
38. "But the gravest difficulty, and perhaps the most important, in poetry meant solely for recitation, is the difficulty of achieving verbal beauty, or rather of making verbal beauty tell."

39. "...instead of the smoldering, soul-baring, Abelard-to-Heloise-sans-castration solicitations you rightfully deserve, you're getting stupefying lines like: "I'm listening to NPR. Do you want to come over and make out?"
Author: Maria Dahvana Headley
40. "Let's turn now to the citation of authors, found in other books and missing in yours. The solution to this is very simple, because all you have to do is find a book that cites them all from A to Z, as you put it. Then you'll put that same alphabet in your book, and though the lie is obvious it doesn't matter, since you'll have little need to use them; perhaps someone will be naive enough to believe you have consulted all of them in your plain and simple history; if it serves no other purpose, at least a lengthy catalogue of authors will give the book an unexpected authority. Furthermore, no one will try to determine if you followed them or did not follow them, having nothing to gain from that."
Author: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
41. "Hunter looked over at Darcangelo. "How'd you get here so fast?""I was setting up that solicitation sting down on Colfax when the call came in. What took you so long? Getting your nails buffed?""Hey, F*ck you. It's my day off.""Your day off? What is that sh*t?"
Author: Pamela Clare
42. "Do you imagine that they're going to issue me a citation...what was your name again?""Still Eve.""No, I'm sure it's something else. That doesn't seem right."
Author: Rachel Caine
43. "O cuprinse in brate; parca nu auzise.- Eva, o sa-ti simt lipsa!- Atunci de ce pleci?Îl simti ca se duce departe, de unde poate venise adineauri.- Nu stiu; mi-e teama sa nu ma transform in copac. (Nu glumea, nici nu parea nebun.) Mi-e teama de limitarile spatiului. Trebuie sa plec repede, si mereu, sa ma apar!Nu-l intelegea si nici nu credea ca trebuie sa-l inteleaga. Isi pregatise si ultima miza:- Ia-ma cu tine!Nu-i raspunse; din departarile intunecate unde se chinuise ajungea iar la lumina, in mijlocul camerei. O privea si o adulmeca, mirat de ceea ce gasea iarasi nou in pielea curata, aurita de soare, care tremura sub degetele lui, arzându-l, cum ar fi fost incarcata de electricitate.Tacerea o facu sa spere; in inima incepeau sa i se lipeasca la loc firele rupte si nu indraznea sa spuna nimic, inainte de a simti ca sudura e trainica. Trebuie sa umble incet cu speranta ei, sa n-o destrame."
Author: Radu Tudoran
44. "The recitation of grievances was strange balm."
Author: Regina O'Melveny
45. "But every point of view is a point of blindness: it incapacitates us for every other point of view. From a certain point of view, the room in which I write has no door. I turn around. Now I see the door, but the room has no window. I look up. From this point of view, the room has no floor. I look down; it has no ceiling. By avoiding particular points of view we are able to have an intuition of the whole. The ideal for a Christian is to become holy, a word which derives from "whole."
Author: Richard Wurmbrand
46. "I love our summer game and its letters as much as the next man, and surely no less than my colleagues. I do not, however, repose much faith in its fiction. The short stories are fair to middling, and Conan Doyle, Wodehouse and Ian Peebles have contributed memorably, but my only previous novel-length experience, before the one under review, was of Maurice Moiseiwitsch's A Sky-Blue Life (1953). This penny dreadful, when last I saw it, was windmilling out of my bedroom window. It was resuscitated in 2006 by the misguided folks at Coldspring. Avoid it."
Author: Rodney Ulyate
47. "You, Celaena Sardothien, are charged with the deaths of the following people..." And then he began a long recitation of all those lives she'd taken. The brutal story of a girl who was now gone."
Author: Sarah J. Maas

No affiliation with unauthorized offshore broker activity Fisher Capital (FCM) fraud."
Author: Solamon Energy
49. "It will be as if I'd never existed. The words ran through my head, lacking the perfect clarity of my hallucination last night. They were just words, soundless, like print on a page. Just words, but they ripped the hole wide open, and I stomped on the brake, knowing I should not drive while this incapacitated.I curled over, pressing my face against the steering wheel and trying to breathe without lungs."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
50. "Most of the slaves, who were thus unconditionally freed, returned without any solicitation to their former masters, to serve them, at stated wages; as free men. The work, which they now did, was found to better done than before."
Author: Thomas Clarkson
