1. "If we would rise into that region of light and power plainly beckoning us through the Scriptures of truth we must break the evil habit of ignoring the spiritual. We must shift our interest from the seen to the unseen. For the great unseen Reality is God. "He that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." This is basic in the life of faith. From there we can rise to unlimited heights. "Ye believe in God," said our Lord Jesus Christ, "believe also in me." Without the first there can be no second."
Author: A.W. Tozer
2. "Melancholy in a capitalist, like the appearance of a comet, presages some misfortune to the world."

3. "-Niña- dijo Milagros con la solemnidad de una sacerdotisa-, yo te deseo la locura, el valor, los anhelos, la impaciencia. Te deseo la fortuna de los amores y el delirio de la soledad. Te deseo el gusto por los cometas, por el agua y los hombres. Te deseo la inteligencia y el ingenio. Te deseo una mirada curiosa, una nariz con memoria, una boca que sonría y maldiga con precisión divina, unas piernas que no envejezcan, un llanto que te devuelva la entereza. Te deseo el sentido del tiempo que tienen las estrellas, el temple de las hormigas, y la duda de los templos. Te deseo la fe en los augurios, en la voz de los muertos, en la boca de los aventureros, en la paz de los hombres que olvidan su destino, en la fuerza de tus recuerdos y el futuro como la promesa donde cabe todo lo que aún no te sucede. Amen."
Author: Ángeles Mastretta

Author: Ann Druyan

6. "We spread our sleeping bags on the snow and crawled inside. The vantage point was dizzying. It was impossible to tell whether the comet was above us or we were above the comet; we were all falling through space, missing the stars by inches."
Author: Anne Fadiman
7. "A infelicidade não une, mas separa os homens e, mesmo nos ambientes em que, parece, eles deveriam ficar unidos pela paridade do infortúnio, cometem-se muito mais injustiças e crueldades que num meio de gente relativamente satisfeita"
Author: Anton Chekhov
8. "Puedes no ser su primero, su ultimo o su único. Ella amo antes y puede amar de nuevo. Pero si ella te ama ahora, Que otra cosa importa? Ella no es perfecta -tu tampoco lo eres, y los dos podrán nunca ser perfectos juntos, pero si ella te puede hacer reír, hacer que pienses las cosas dos veces, y puede admitir ser humana y cometer errores, Hazla tuya y dale lo mas que puedas. Puede que ella no piense en ti cada segundo del día, pero ella te dará una parte de su cuerpo que sabe es frágil - su corazón. Así que no la lastimes, no la cambies, no la analices y no esperes más de lo que ella pueda dar. Sonríe cuando te haga feliz, déjale saber cuándo te enfurezca y extráñala cuando no esté ahí."
Author: Bob Marley
9. "Each of us is born to follow a star, be it bright and shining or dark and fated. Sometimes the path of these stars will cross, bringing love or hatred. However, if you look up at the skies on a clear night, out of all the countless lights that twinkle and shine, there will come one. That star will be seen in a blaze, burning a path of light across the roof of the earth, a great comet."
Author: Brian Jacques

Author: Carolina Pineda
12. "'Night of the Comet' established me as a strong woman. And let's face it, this business is very surface and one dimensional - so it's easy to get typecast."
Author: Catherine Mary Stewart
13. "Is not the gospel its own sign and wonder? Is not this a miracle of miracles, that 'God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish'? Surely that precious word, 'Whosoever will, let him come and take the water of life freely' and that solemn promise, 'Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out,' are better than signs and wonders! A truthful Saviour ought to be believed. He is truth itself. Why will you ask proof of the veracity of One who cannot lie?"
Author: Charles H. Spurgeon
14. "What caused me to undertake the catalog was the nebula I discovered above the southern horn of Taurus on September 12, 1758, while observing the comet of that year. ... This nebula had such a resemblance to a comet in its form and brightness that I endeavored to find others, so that astronomers would not confuse these same nebulae with comets just beginning to shine. I observed further with suitable refractors for the discovery of comets, and this is the purpose I had in mind in compiling the catalog.After me, the celebrated Herschel published a catalog of 2000 which he has observed. This unveiling the sky, made with instruments of great aperture, does not help in the perusal of the sky for faint comets. Thus my object is different from his, and I need only nebulae visible in a telescope of two feet [focal length]."
Author: Charles Messier
15. "A vida e curta demais para cometer o mesmo erro duas vezes"
Author: Claire Cross
16. "Lo que pasa con la vida real es que, cuando haces alguna estupidez, sueles acabar pagándola. En los libros, los protagonistas pueden cometer tantos errores como quieran. No importa lo que hagan, porque al final todo sale bien. Derrotan a los malos, arreglan las cosas y todo acaba guay."
Author: Darren Shan
17. "—Ahora lo entiendo —dije, con la voz amortiguada contra su hombro—. Lo entiendo de verdad. —¿Entender qué? —Lo que se siente al ver que la persona que más quieres en el mundo está en peligro. Antes no lo sabía de verdad. Y al ver a Felicity apuntándote al corazón con la pistola, de repente me sentí una estúpida por no haberlo sabido. —¿Saber qué? —Lo salvaje que es. No tiene nada de razonable ni de lógico. Tenías razón al decir que pierdes el control en lo que se refiere a mí. Yo no podía controlar lo que iba a hacer. Provoqué la explosión porque no podía pensar en otra cosa que en salvarte. No pensé en lo peligroso que era para mí y para los demás. En ese momento solo me importabas tú. Solo tú. Y habría hecho cualquier cosa por salvarte. Habría pagado cualquier precio, habría cometido cualquier pecado, habría vendido mi alma con tal de salvarte."
Author: Deanna Raybourn

Author: Epicurus
21. "Socrates taught thatNo evil could comeTo a good man.How does that help me?"
Author: Evan Rhys
22. "A Christian accepts responsibility whatever his environment. God has not grudged you intelligence--you are capable of answering the question, 'Am I or am I not responsible for my actions?' Therefore, there is no doubt that you are responsible. 'Temptation cannot but enter the world, but woe unto him through whom temptation cometh.' As to your transgression itself, well, many commit similar ones, but go on living in peace with their consciences and even consider such things as inevitable errors of youth. There are also odd men with the smell of the grave already about them who likewise still go on sinning, playfully shrugging off their responsibility and reassuring themselves. The world is full of such horrors. You, at least, have felt the full depth of your transgressions, and that's a very rare occurrence."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
23. "We affect one another quite enough merely by existing. Whenever the stars cross, or is it comets? fragments pass briefly from one orbit to another. On rare occasions there is total collision, but most often the two simply continue without incident, neither losing more than a particle to the other, in passing."
Author: Gore Vidal
24. "Bob's Words:Nobody knows what tomorrow bringsBy loving, giving, caringAnd sharing todayLets one know that if tomorrowDoes not comeToday is a good day to be the last"
Author: Greg Noack
25. "I wanted to feel the blood running back into my veins, even at the cost of annihilation. I wanted to shake the stone and light out of my system. I wanted the dark fecundity of nature, the deep well of the womb, silence, or else the lapping of the black waters of death. I wanted to be that night which the remorseless eye illuminated, a night diapered with stars and trailing comets. To be of night so frighteningly silent, so utterly incomprehensible and eloquent at the same time. Never more to speak or to listen or to think."
Author: Henry Miller
26. "Ese es el gran secreto de las mujeres, eso es lo que les da ventaja sobre los hombres como nosotros. Saben cuándo ceder, cuándo echarse a llorar. Nosotros, tú y yo, no lo sabemos. Aguantamos, embotellamos la pena dentro de nosotros, la encerramos y cal y canto, hasta que se convierte en el mismísimo demonio. Y entonces nos da por cometer alguna estupidez, sólo con tal de librarnos de la pena, aunque no sea más que un par de horas. Sí, cometemos alguna estupidez que luego habremos de lamentar durante toda la vida. Las mujeres no son así, porque conocen el secreto de las lágrimas."
Author: J.M. Coetzee
27. "Bienvenido al maravilloso mundo de los celos. Por el precio de su entrada, obtiene un maldito dolor de cabeza, un deseo casi irresistible de cometer un homicidio. Y un complejo de inferioridad. Yupi."
Author: J.R. Ward
28. "Justice is not Healing. Healing cometh only by suffering and patience, and maketh no demand, not even for Justice. Justice worketh only within the bonds of things as they are... and therefore though Justice is itself good and desireth no further evil, it can but perpetuate the evil that was, and doth not prevent it from the bearing of fruit in sorrow."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
29. "Lark of memoryit is your blood that is flowingand not mineLark of memoryI have tightened my fistLark of memorydead bird of mistyou should not have cometo eat from my handthe grains of oblivion."
Author: Jacques Prévert
30. "I should like to speak about the battle that each of us has to wage within ourselves…We need to strengthen the good within us and to overcome the temptations of Satan. The direction finder is sure. Alma tells us, ‘Whatsoever is good cometh from God, and whatsoever is evil cometh from the devil."
Author: James E. Faust
31. "Ever he would wander, selfcompelled, to the extreme limit of his cometary orbit, beyond the fixed stars and variable suns and telescopic planets, astronomical waifs and strays, to the extreme boundary of space, passing from land to land, among peoples, amid events."
Author: James Joyce
32. "Strauss's, for instance, which begins in the heavens. The artist doesn't ascend to glory, he appears in it, he already has it and the world is prepared to recognize him. Meteoric, like a comet—those are the phrases we apply, and it's true, it is a kind of burning. It makes them highly visible, and at the same time it consumes them, and it's only afterwards, when the brilliance is gone, when their bones are lying alongside those of lesser men, that one can really judge. I mean, there are famous works, renowned in antiquity, and today absolutely forgotten: books, buildings, works of art."
Author: James Salter
33. "The Quit Man cometh, his minion at his heels."
Author: John Corey Whaley

Author: John Dos Passos

Author: Michelangelo Saez
38. "Walking and overcoming by faith is not easy. For one thing, the dimension of time constantly constrains our perspective. Likewise, the world steadily tempts us. No wonder we are given instructive words from Jesus about the narrowness and the straightness of the only path available to return home: "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6). And then he said, "No man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Jesus laid down strict conditions."
Author: Neal A. Maxwell
39. "Amanda olhou para ele - Tens de compreender que já não sou a rapariga que era dantes. Sou casada e sou mãe e, tal como toda a gente, não sou perfeita. Debato-me com as escolhas que fiz e cometo erros e passo grande parte do tempo a interrogar-me sobre quem sou realmente ou se a minha vida tem algum significado sequer. Não sou de modo nenhum uma pessoa especial, Dawson, e tens de perceber isso. Tens de compreender que sou apenas... uma pessoa vulgar."
Author: Nicholas Sparks
40. "La sabiduría de una ciudad no hay que medirla por los sabios que acoge, ni por sus bibliotecas, ni por sus ilustradores, calígrafos y medersas, sino por el número de crímenes tortuosos cometidos en sus calles oscuras a lo largo de miles de años."
Author: Orhan Pamuk

Author: Robert T. Bakker
43. "You can't just plan a moment when things get back on track, just as you can't plan the moment you lose your way in the first place. But standing there alone on the landing, I thought of Grandma Halley and how she'd held me close against her lap as we watched the sky together. I'd always thought I couldn't remember, but suddenly in that moment, I closed my eyes and saw the comet, finally, brilliant and impossible, stretching above me across the sky."
Author: Sarah Dessen
44. "Heaven, such as it is, is right here on earth. Behold: my revelation: I stand at the door in the morning, and lo, there is a newspaper, in sight like unto an emerald. And holy, holy, holy is the coffee, which was, and is, and is to come. And hark, I hear the voice of an angel round about the radio saying, "Since my baby left me I found a new place to dwell." And lo, after this I beheld a great multitude, which no man could number, of shoes. And after these things I will hasten unto a taxicab and to a theater, where a ticket will be given unto me, and lo, it will be a matinee, and a film that doeth great wonders. And when it is finished, the heavens will open, and out will cometh a rain fragrant as myrrh, and yea, I have an umbrella."
Author: Sarah Vowell

Author: Sting

Our anger is a rage thatWesterners cannot understand. Our sadness can make the stonesweep. And the way we love is no exception"
Author: Susan Abulhawa
