Favorite Cote Quotes

1. "Într-adevar, despre cine si despre ce pot sa spun: «Cunosc asta!» Îmi pot pune inima la încercare si socotesc ca exista. Lumea aceasta o pot atinge si socotesc de asemenea ca exista. Aici se opreste stiinta mea, tot restul e constructie. Caci, daca încerc sa înteleg acest eu de a carui existenta sînt sigur, daca încerc sa-1 definesc si sa-1 rezum, el nu mai este decît o apa care-mi curge printre degete. Pot sa desenez rînd pe rînd toate chipurile pe care stie a le lua si pe toate cele ce i-au fost atribuite, educatia, originea, înflacararea sau tacerile, maretia sau josnicia. Dar nu poti aditiona chipuri. Propria-mi inima va ramîne totdeauna pentru mine de nedefinit."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "Doarme. Si-a încheiat socotelile cu lumea asta. De-acum încolo totul îi va fi usor. Va trece doar de la un somn plin de imagini la un somn fara vise. Si ceea ce pentru toti ceilalti înseamna o smulgere îngrozitoare nu va fi pentru el decît un somn nesfîrsit."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "I wonder how a lioness will manage in a dovecote. Can you put away your teeth and claws?"
Author: Alice Hoffman
4. "Evening prayerI spend my life sitting, like an angel in a barber's chair,Holding a beer mug with deep-cut designs,My neck and gut both bent, while in the airA weightless veil of pipe smoke hangs.Like steaming dung within an old dovecoteA thousand Dreams within me softly burn:From time to time my heart is like some oakWhose blood runs golden where a branch is torn.And then, when I have swallowed down my DreamsIn thirty, forty mugs of beer, I turnTo satisfy a need I can't ignore,And like the Lord of Hyssop and of MyrrhI piss into the skies, a soaring streamThat consecrates a patch of flowering fern."
Author: Arthur Rimbaud
5. "There is kindness in Love: but Love and kindness are not coterminous, and when kindness (in the sense given above) is separated from the other elements of Love, it involves a certain fundamental indifference to its object, and even something like contempt of it."
Author: C.S. Lewis
6. "One more thing: Linda, can you get to Canterbury and take over my Chaucerian Society? They're at Dovecote Hostelry in the old city. We're visiting all the scenes of the great murders. Tomorrow they want to see where Becket was killed. They're a bloodthirsty lot, it seems."
Author: Cinda Williams Chima
7. "Il paraît qu'à soixante-dix ans, c'est le meilleur souvenir qu'il vous reste. Le sexe. C'est ma grand-mère qui m'a dit ça. Elle m'a dit, tu sais quand on a mon âge, les plus beaux souvenirs qu'il vous reste ce sont les nuits d'amour. C'est ses mots à elle, mais je sais bien ce que ça veut dire. Ça veut dire qu'il n'y a rien de tel, après avoir bien pris son pied, que de se coller contre un homme en lui tenant la bite encore toute chaude comme un petit écureuil endormi. Tricote-toi des souvenirs, elle me dit, ma grand-mère, alors moi, je fais comme elle me dit et je me tricote des souvenirs pour me faire des pulls et des pulls pour quand je serai vieille et que j'aurai toujours froid. Parce que les vieux, ils ont toujours froid. Ils ont froid de ne plus pouvoir vivre les choses. C'est ça, qui donne froid, c'est de plus pouvoir s'assouvir, de plus pouvoir se donner à fond à ce qu'on a envie de vivre."
Author: David Thomas
8. "Robert Scotellaro is quoted in The Funny Side of Parenthood as saying, "Reasoning with a two-year-old is about as productive as changing seats on the Titanic."
Author: Elizabeth Pantley
9. "Stând printre oameni te dezveti de oameni: prea vrea sa iasa fiecare la vedere — si-atunci la ce-ti mai pot sluji ochii patrunzatori, scurmând în zare? Chiar când cu totii ma nesocoteau, eu ca nebunul îi crutam mai mult pe ei decât pe mine: eram obisnuit sa fiu cu mine însumi aspru si-adeseori ma razbunam pe mine pentru aceasta-ngaduinta fata de ei. Piscat de muste veninoase si gaurit, asemeni unei pietre, de picaturile de rautate, asa-mi duceam viata printre ei si cautam sa ma conving zicându-mi: «Nevinovat este nimicul de propria-i nimicnicie.»"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
10. "Then she told him to look in the bedroom and Aureliano Segundo saw the mule. Its skin was clinging to its bones like that of its mistress, but it was just as alive and resolute as she. Petra Cotes had fed it with her wrath, and when there was no more hay or corn or roots, she had given it shelter in her own bedroom and fed it on the percale sheets, the Persian rugs, the plush bedspreads, the velvet drapes, and the canopy embroidered with gold thread and silk tassels on the episcopal bed."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
11. "He dug so deeply into her sentiments that in search of interest he found love, because by trying to make her love him he ended up falling in love with her. Petra Cotes, for her part, loved him more and more as she felt his love increasing, and that was how in the ripeness of autumn she began to believe once more in the youthful superstition that poverty was the servitude of love. Both looked back then on the wild revelry, the gaudy wealth, and the unbridled fornication as an annoyance and they lamented that it had cost them so much of their lives to find the paradise of shared solitude. Madly in love after so many years of sterile complicity, they enjoyed the miracle of living each other as much at the table as in bed, and they grew to be so happy that even when they were two worn-out people they kept on blooming like little children and playing together like dogs."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
12. "Thus the dream house must possess every virtue. How­ ever spacious, it must also be a cottage, a dove-cote, a nest, a chrysalis. Intimacy needs the heart of a nest. Erasmus, his biographer tells us, was long "in finding a nook in his fine house in which he could put his little body with safety. He ended by confining himself to one room until he could breathe the parched air that was necessary to him."
Author: Gaston Bachelard
13. "En ese momento me miró fijamente, se levantó tomándome entre sus brazos y me acostó de nuevo en la hierba quedando él encima de mí. El chal que cubría mis hombros me había traicionado y descubrió por completo el escote de mi vestido, instintivamente su mirada se desvió a mis pechos y no quise imaginar lo que pensó. Mi expresión notaba miedo, comencé a temblar sin saber si era por temor o por otra cosa, el panorama que él tenía enfrente era una tentación y no quería que pensara que lo había provocado de manera intencional. Mi respiración comenzó a ser más intensa y los latidos de mi corazón más fuertes y acelerados."
Author: Itxa Bustillo
14. "It was an irresistible development of modern illustration (so largely photographic) that borders should be abandoned and the "picture" end only with the paper. This method may be suitable for for photographs; but it is altogether inappropriate for the pictures that illustrate or are inspired by fairy-stories. An enchanted forest requires a margin, even an elaborate border. To print it coterminous with the page, like a "shot" of the Rockies in Picture Post, as if it were indeed a "snap" of fairyland or a "sketch by our artist on the spot", is a folly and an abuse."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
15. "Planting trees, I myself thought for a long time, was a feel-good thing, a nice but feeble response to our litany of modern-day environmental problems. In the last few years, though, as I have read many dozens of articles and books and interviewed scientists here and abroad, my thinking on the issue has changed. Planting trees may be the single most important ecotechnology that we have to put the broken pieces of our planet back together."
Author: Jim Robbins
16. "(...) Si de aici mi-am dat seama ca era dement si deci nevinovat, caci toti oamenii nebuni, pâna si cei mai cruzi, sunt nevinovati. Reprezenta una din fortele întunecate pe care viata le poate crea daca vrea: forma cea mai primitiva de viata transformata într-o hidoasa combinatie de carne si gândire. Poate asta era si motivul pentru care reusea sa se impuna atât de puternic, ca o divinitate a întunericului. Caci în aceasta vraja malefica exista ceva ce nu tinea de omenesc. Asa ca adevarata monstruozitate se afla în ceilalti nemti, în cei pe care îi comanda, locotenentii, caporalii, soldatii, care nu erau dementi, dar care stateau aici, martori ai acestei scene, fara sa sufle un cuvânt"."
Author: John Fowles
17. "Like a bitch in heat, I seem to attract a coterie of policemen and sanitation officials."
Author: John Kennedy Toole
18. "Isi cauta teama de moarte pe care o simtise inainte si n-o mai gasi. Unde e? Care moarte? Nu mai exista nicio teama, pentru ca nu mai exista moartea. In locul mortii era lumina. "Va sa zica, asta e!" exclama deodata cu glas tare, "Ce bucurie!". Toate acestea se petrecura pentru el intr-o clipa, si intelesul clipei ramase acelasi pana la sfarsit. Pentru cei din jurul lui insa, agonia mai dura doua ore. In piept ii clocotea ceva: trupul slabit tresarea. Pe urma, clocotul si horcaitul devenira tot mai tare. "S-a sfarsit", spuse cineva la capataiul lui. Auzi cuvintele si le repeta in gand. "S-a sfarsit cu moartea, isi spuse. Nu mai exista."Trase aer in piept, se opri la jumatatea unui suspin, trupul i se destinse si muri."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
19. "Ca era dimineata ori seara, vineri ori duminica ? ii era totuna; era la fel, aceeasi durere surda, chinuitoare, care nu-l lasa o clipa; mereu constiinta vietii care se stinge fara putinta de impotrivire, dar care mai dainuie; moartea care se apropia, cumplita si hada ? numai ea singura era realitatea, iar celelalte toate...minciuna. La ce bun sa mai tii socoteala zilelor, saptamanilor, ceasurilor ?"
Author: Leo Tolstoy
20. "Tão certo é que a paisagem depende do ponto de vista, e que o melhor modo de apreciar o chicote é ter-lhe o cabo na mão."
Author: Machado De Assis
21. "Destruamos o cárcere de vossos filhos e pais, de vossas mães e irmãos, de vossos parentes e amigos e de vós mesmos. Ou morrereis a pão e água, talvez a chicote, na masmorra daquele indigno."
Author: Machado De Assis
22. "'Misty of Chincoteague', 'The Black Stallion', the 'Saddle Club' books, I read 'em all. I was horse-crazy."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
23. "FimQuando eu morrer batam em latas,Rompam aos saltos e aos pinotes,Façam estalar no ar chicotes,Chamem palhaços e acrobatas!Que o meu caixão vá sobre um burroAjaezado à andaluza...A um morto nada se recusa,Eu quero por força ir de burro."
Author: Mário De Sá Carneiro
24. "No lo entiendes, Urania. Hay muchas cosas de la Era que has llegado a entender; algunas, al principio, te parecían inextricables, pero, a fuerza de leer, escuchar, cotejar y pensar, has llegado a comprender que tantos millones de personas, machacadas por la propaganda, por la falta de información, embrutecidas por el adoctrinamiento, el aislamiento, despojadas de libre albedrío, de voluntad y hasta de curiosidad por el miedo y la práctica del servilismo y la obsecuencia, llegaran a divinizar a Trujillo. No solo a temerlo, sino a quererlo, como llegan a querer los hijos a los padres autoritarios, a convencerse de que azotes y castigos son por su bien."
Author: Mario Vargas Llosa
25. "Pessoas com vidas interessantes não têm fricote. Elas trocam de cidade. Investem em projetos sem garantia. Interessam-se por gente que é o oposto delas. Pedem demissão sem ter outro emprego em vista. Aceitam um convite para fazer o que nunca fizeram. Estão dispostos a mudar de cor preferida, de prato predileto. Começam do zero inúmeras vezes. Não se assustam com a passagem do tempo. Sobem no palco, tosam o cabelo, fazem loucuras por amor, compram passagens só de ida."
Author: Martha Medeiros
26. "Imagine the terrestrial timespan as an outstretched arm: a single swipe of an emery-board, across the nail of the third finger, erases human history. We haven't been around for very long. And we've turned the earth's hair white. Sh e seemed to have eternal youth but now she's ageing awful fast, like an addict, like a waxless candle. Jesus, have you seen her recently? we used to live and die without any sense of the planet getting older, of mother earth getting older, living and dying. We used to live outside history. But now we're all coterminous. We're inside history now all right, on its leading edge, with the wind ripping past our ears. Hard to love, when you're bracing yourself for impact. And maybe love can't bear it either, and flees all planets when they reach this condition, when they get to the end of their twentieth centuries."
Author: Martin Amis
27. "We inter-change ideas. You can stay in the United States and inspire people in Indonesia. You can stay in Ghana and inspire people in Turkey. You can stay in Nigeria and inspire people in cote'd voire. You can stay in Senegal and inspire people in China and vice versa."
Author: Michael Bassey Johnson
28. "Nu puteam crede ca sunt ?i eu asemenea celorlalte mii de muritori neferici?i, care iubesc ?i uita, ?i mor fara sa socoteasca nimic etern, nimic definitiv."
Author: Mircea Eliade
29. "A common strand appeared to unite these conflicts, and that was the advancement of a small coterie's concept of American interests in the guise of the fight against terrorism, which was defined to refer only to the organized and politically motivated killing of civilians by killers not wearing the uniforms of soldiers. I recognized that if this was to be the single most important priority of our species, then the lives of those of us who lived in lands in which such killers also lived had no meaning except as collateral damage. This, I reasoned, was why America felt justified in bringing so many deaths to Afghanistan and Iraq, and why America felt justified in risking so many more deaths by tacitly using India to pressure Pakistan."
Author: Mohsin Hamid
30. "Ajunsem chiar sa-l detest din pricina ca e prea bun cu mine,prea supus. Mi-ar fi placut sa-l vad,macar o data, înfuriindu-se , batând cu pumnul în masa. Dar din gura lui nu ie?eau decât vorbe umile. Asta ma scotea din sarite. N-aveam ce sa-i repro?ez. Cum sa-i repro?ezi cuiva ca-i prea cumsecade ?"
Author: Octavian Paler
31. "Când întâlne?ti un barbat ca Don Juanul tau, imposibil, scandalos de seducator, amuza-te cât po?i, dar ai grija sa-?i încui inima în safe superblindat. Daca e?ti însa slaba de înger, cote?te-o urgent pe alta uli?a."
Author: Rodica Ojog Braşoveanu
32. "Así que somos dos bolas de discoteca andantes."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
33. "La parte difícil es comprenderlo y asimilarlo; descargar una gran cantidad de falsos condicionamientos, mantener una actitud constructiva, y desechar temores ilógicos. El reto aquí es el desarrollo de tu propio ser... para convertirte en el hombre o la mujer que no se boicoteará a si mismo(a) al hacerlo."
Author: Steve Pavlina
34. "That, like an eagle in a dovecote, IFluttered your Volscians in Corioles."
Author: William Shakespeare

Today's Quote

There's a tree that grows in Brooklyn. Some people call it the Tree of Heaven. No matter where its seed falls, it makes a tree which struggles to reach the sky. It grows in boarded-up lots and out of neglected rubbish heaps. It grows up out of cellar gratings. It is the only tree that grows out of cement. It grows lushly . . . survives without sun, water, and seemingly without earth. It would be considered beautiful except that there are too many of it."
