Author: Aimé Césaire
2. "Il admirait le curieux aveuglement par quoi les hommes, si renseignés pourtant sur ce qui change en eux, imposent à leurs amis l'image qu'une fois pour toutes ils se sont faite d'eux. Pour lui, on le jugeait selon ce qu'il avait été. Comme un chien ne change pas de caractère"
Author: Albert Camus
3. "Elle le regardait d'un curieux air indécis, comme si elle était partagée entre la foi qu'elle avait dans l'intelligence de son fils et sa certitude que la vie toute entière était faite d'un malheur contre lequel on ne pouvait rien qu'on pouvait seulement endurer ."
Author: Albert Camus
4. "I have to keep going, as there are always people on my track. I have to publish my present work as rapidly as possible in order to keep in the race. The best sprinters in this road of investigation are Becquerel and the Curies..."
Author: Becquerel
5. "For a long time it was assumed that anything so miraculously energetic as radioactivity must be beneficial. For years, manufacturers of toothpaste and laxatives put radioactive thorium in their products, and at least until the late 1920s the Glen Springs Hotel in the Finger Lakes region of New York (and doubtless others as well) featured with pride the therapeutic effects of its ‘Radio-active mineral springs27'. It wasn't banned in consumer products until 193828. By this time it was much too late for Mme Curie, who died of leukaemia in 1934. Radiation, in fact, is so pernicious and long-lasting that even now her papers from the 1890s – even her cookbooks – are too dangerous to handle. Her lab books are kept in lead-lined boxes29 and those who wish to see them must don protective clothing."
Author: Bill Bryson
6. "- J'étais simplement curieux de connaître ta réaction.- Ma réaction ? Eh bien je me suis sentie malheureuse, jalouse et j'ai eu une envie irrésistible de te flinguer. Mais quel âge as-tu pour avoir un comportement aussi puéril ?!Il s'esclaffa.- Deux mille cinq cents ans et une petite fille me fait danser dans sa main... avoue que c'est risible, non ? fit-il en plantant ses yeux couleur de ciel dans les miens.Non. Je ne trouvais pas ça risible. Bizarre et curieux mais pas risible."
Author: Cassandra O'Donnell
7. "Cu ani mai tarziu, la o nunta, l-am auzit pe preot descriind casnicia ca pe o frangere in doua a tristetii si o dublare a bucuriei, si nu mi-a trecut prin minte nici tipul cu care eram atunci si nici vreun sot perfect, imaginar, din viitorul meu; in schimb, m-am gandit imediat la Matha."
Author: Curtis Sittenfeld
8. "Urmându-ti asadar sfatul, m-am straduitsa-l pun în aplicare. Contemplând lumina, culorile, copacii, pasarile, animalele. Simteam cum aerul îmi patrunde în nari facându-ma sa respir. Vocile de pe culoar veneau spre mine ca din bolta unei catedrale. Iar eu eram viu. Frematam de o bucurie necuprinsa si pura. Aceea de a exista. O bucurie care ma fermeca."
Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt
9. "Desigur bucuria este sentimentul unei certitudini sau unei împliniri de viata. Stim însa cu totii ca viata este moarte.Tristetea este, poate, sentimentul incertitudinii sau al neîmplinitii mele în viata. Aceasta este însa necesara pentru mântuirea mea spirituala. Tristetea — sentiment de moarte în aceasta viata — este reversul bucuriei fata de viata mea în moarte.Bucuria neîmplinita are aceasta tristete spirituala; tristetea este luminata de bucuria împlinirii dincolo, în spirit"
Author: Eugène Ionesco
10. "Notre génération est trop superficielle pour le mariage. On se marie comme on va au MacDo. Après, on zappe. Comment voudriez-vous qu'on reste toute sa vie avec la même personne dans la société du zapping généralisé? Dans l'époque où les stars, les hommes politiques, les arts, les sexes, les religions n'ont jamais été aussi interchangeables? Pourquoi le sentiment amoureux ferait-il exception à la schizophrénie générale? Et puis d'abord, d'où nous vient donc cette curieuse obsession: s'escrimer à tout prix pour être heureux avec une seule personne? Sur 558 types de sociétés humaines, 24 % seulement sont monogames. La plupart des espèces animales sont polygames. Quant aux extraterrestres, n'en parlons pas: il y a longtemps que la Charte Galactique X23 a interdit la monogamie dans toutes les planètes de type B#871."
Author: Frédéric Beigbeder
11. "Le plus curieux, c'est que, peu à peu, un autre sentiment a fait surface. Quelque chose comme de la déception. Et je me suis aperçue que, en dépit de tout, j'aurais vraiment aimé aller voir le grand canyon."
Author: Gayle Forman
12. "Inca de pe atunci, indepartat de la orice caldura si bucurie, ma ascundeam, ma linisteam pe mine insumi, in reveria lacoma, in solitara rumegare a lumii reintregite prin eu. Nu eram placut celorlalti, iar ura m-a intarcuit in singuratate. Singuratatea m-a facut mai trist si mai antipatic; tristetea mi-a strans inima si mi-a ascutit mintea. Firea mea deosebita m-a indepartat chiar de cei mai apropiati, iar despartirea m-a facut si mai deosebit."
Author: Giovanni Papini
13. "Pressant le pas, il atteignit l'ascenseur pratiquement au galop. Une curieuse sensation remonta de ses mollets à ses genoux. Non qu'il en eût fait l'expérience récemment mais en y réfléchissant, il se dit que cela devait s'appeler "courir"."
Author: Graham Moore
14. "Don't you know how much I hero-worshiped you when I was a kid? Youwere Marie Curie crossed with Emily Bronte crossed with Joan of Arc tome when I was ten. And when i told you that, you said my culturalreferences were the sign of a colonized mind."
Author: Kamila Shamsie
15. "I've written books as acts of discovery: things I need to know and that I need to touch. And it's very dangerous work to deal with the most toxic internal elements... I feel like Madame Curie at my computer. I feel like I should be hemorrhaging from my eyes and ears."
Author: Kate Braverman
16. "Why did she [Madame Curie] seek to tame this mystery, which in the hands of others turned a multitude to ashes? Her work exploded with the violence of a thousand suns, but I must tell her that it was not her fault, the way they twisted her creation, tampered with her dreams."I will tell her."They said she was inhuman, heartless, but it is not so. She is here now. Weeping, she awaits me, She is carrying balm for our hands. [p, 56]"
Author: Kim Edwards
17. "The year was 1922, and the Curies had transformed plain earth into something rare and unimagined. A secret of the universe has been revealed, and a restless world dreamed of transformation. [p. 205]"
Author: Kim Edwards
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. "Liniste Atâta liniste-i în jur de-mi pare ca audcum se izbesc de geamuri razele de luna.În pieptmi s-a trezit un glas strainsi-un cântec cânta-n mine-un dorce nu-i al meu.Se spune ca stramosii cari au murit fara de vreme,cu sânge tânar înca-n vine,cu patimi mari în sânge,cu soare viu în patimi,vin,vin sa-si traiasca mai departeîn noiviata netraita.Atâta liniste-i în jur de-mi pare ca audcum se izbesc de geamuri razele de luna.O, cine stie - suflete,-n ce piept îti vei cântasi tu odata peste veacuripe coarde dulci de liniste,pe harfa de-ntuneric - dorul sugrumatsi frânta bucurie de viata? Cine stie? Cine stie?(1919)"
Author: Lucian Blaga
20. "La vie est atroce ; nous savons cela. Mais précisément parce que j'attends peu de choses de la condition humaine, les périodes de bonheur, les progrès partiels, les efforts de recommencement, et de continuité me semblent autant de prodiges qui compensent presque l'immense masse des maux, des échecs, de l'incurie et de l'erreur."
Author: Marguerite Yourcenar
21. "Our Marie Curie.{Said about scientist Lise Meitner}"
Author: Marie Curie
22. "Marie Curie is, of all celebrated beings, the only one whom fame has not corrupted."
Author: Marie Curie
23. "Neindoielnic omul nu e facut pentru fericire, ca sa aiba intr-adevar posibilitatea practica de a fi fericit omul ar trebui sa se transforme, sa se transforme fizic. Cu ce poate fi comparat Dumnzeu? Mai intai, evident, cu sexul femeilor; dar si, poate, cu aburii dintr-o baie turceasca. Oricum, cu ceva care sa faca spiritul posibil cand trupul exulta de bucurie si de placere, iar orice teama e abolita. Acum sunt sigur ca spiritul inca nu s-a nascut, ca vrea sa se nasca si ca nasterea lui va fi dificila, ca deocamdata avem despre el doar o idee trunchiata si nociva."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
24. "În afara actului sexual, sunt putine clipe în viata când trupul exulta de simpla bucurie de a trai, când se umple de bucurie prin simplul fapt al prezentei sale în lume. Ziua de întâi ianuarie a fost plina de asemenea clipe. Pastrez doar amintirea acelei plenitudini, nimic altceva. Probabil c-am înotat, ne-am încalzit la soare si-am facut dragoste. Nu cred sa fi vorbit ori sa ne fi plimbat pe insula. Îmi amintesc mirosul pe care-l avea Valérie, gustul sarii ce i se usca pe sex. Îmi amintesc c-am adormit în ea, si c-am fost trezit de contractiile vaginului ei."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
25. "Ma leg pe tine, pamântule, ca eu voi fi a lui Allan, ?i a nimanui altuia. Voi cre?te din el ca iarba din tine. ?i cum a?tep?i tu ploaia, a?a îi voi a?tepta eu venirea, ?i cum î?i sunt ?ie razele, a?a va fi trupul lui mie. Ma leg în fa?a ta ca unirea noastra va rodi, caci mi-e drag cu voia mea, ?i tot raul, daca va fi, sa nu cada asupra lui, ci asupra-mi, caci eu l-am ales. Tu ma auzi, mama pamânt, tu nu ma min?i, maica mea. Daca ma sim?i aproape, cum te simt eu acum, ?i cu mâna ?i cu inelul, întare?te-ma sa-l iubesc totdeauna, bucurie necunoscuta lui sa-i aduc, via?a de rod ?i de joc sa-i dau. Sa fie via?a noastra ca bucuria ierburilor ce cresc din tine. Sa fie îmbra?i?area noastra ca cea dintâi zi a monsoon-ului. Ploaie sa fie sarutul nostru. ?i cum tu niciodata nu obose?ti, maica mea, tot astfel sa nu oboseasca inima mea în dragostea pentru Allan, pe care cerul l-a nascut departe, ?i tu, maica, mi l-ai adus aproape."
Author: Mircea Eliade
26. "Our Marie Curie."
Author: Our
27. "For the admirable gift of himself, and for the magnificent service he renders humanity, what reward does our society offer the scientist? Have these servants of an idea the necessary means of work? Have they an assured existence, sheltered from care? The example of Pierre Curiee, and of others, shows that they have none of these things; and that more often, before they can secure possible working conditions, they have to exhaust their youth and their powers in daily anxieties. Our society, in which reigns an eager desire for riches and luxury, does not understand the value of science. It does not realize that science is a most precious part of its moral patrimony. Nor does it take sufficient cognizance of the fact that science is at the base of all the progress that lightens the burden of life and lessens its suffering. Neither public powers nor private generosity actually accord to science and to scientists the support and the subsidies indispensable to fully effective work."
Author: Pierre Curie
28. "Pierre Curie, a brilliant scientist, happened to marry a still more brilliant one—Marie, the famous Madame Curie—and is the only great scientist in history who is consistently identified as the husband of someone else."
Author: Pierre Curie
29. "Il est bon de savoir quelque chose des moeurs de divers peuples, afin de juger des notres plus sainement et que nous ne pensions pas que tout ce qui est contre nos modes soit ridicule et contre raison, ainsi qu'ont coutume de faire ceux qui n'ont rien vu; mais lorsqu'on emploie trop de temps à voyager on devient enfin étranger en son pays; et lorsqu'on est trop curieux des choses qui se pratiquaient aux siècles passés, on demeure ordinairement fort ignorant de celles qui se pratiquent en celui-ci."
Author: René Descartes
30. "Vîrsta ne schimba atît de mult, uneori uiti ca ai fost copil, ai impresia ca te-ai nascut asa, batrîn, si totusi sînt unele fleacuri care-ti ramîn adînc înradacinate. Clisee unde adultul da mîna cu pustiul care tragea la fit si tocea peste vara la teorema lui Pitagora. De cînd ma stiu, prima ninsoare m-a scos din minti... Îmi venea sa urlu de bucurie... Ca si mirosul ala special din martie. Un miros de verde, de pamînt..."
Author: Rodica Ojog Braşoveanu
31. "If Newton had not, as Wordsworth put it, voyaged through strange seas of thought alone, someone else would have. If Marie Curie had not lived, we still would have discovered the radioactive elements polonium and radium. But if J. K. Rowling had not been born, we would never have known about Harry Potter. That is why Master Potter means so much to me. Science may be special but Harry, as a work of art, is more so. Harry Potter is unique."
Author: Roger Highfield
32. "Bien que Terron fût un homme qu'apparemment je ne pouvais appeler autrement qu'un fanatique religieux ; bien qu'il menât sa vie d'une manière qui m'était encore plus étrangère que celle de M. Mann ; et bien que souvent je fusse arrivé à conclure, presque contre ma volonté, qu'il n'était qu'un arnaqueur rusé de campagne en train d'exploiter mon curieux mélange de culpabilité (le raciste américain en moi) et d'amour pour l'ésotérique (l'intellectuel branché en moi), il semblait malgré tout capable de me prévoir, de connaître bien plus précisément que le vieil homme mes besoins, mes questions et mes inquiétudes. De fait, c'était cette capacité d'anticiper sur moi et le bien-être qu'elle me procurait qui me ramenaient sans cesse à croire qu'il était en train de me rouler. En tant que vieux puritain, je me devais de me méfier de tout ce qui m'apportait du bien-être. (p. 201)"
Author: Russell Banks
33. "Elles [Rosa Luxembourg, Marie Curie] démontrent avec éclat que ce n'est pas l'infériorité des femmes qui a déterminé leur insignifiance historique: c'est leur insignifiance historique qui les a vouées à l'infériorité."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
34. "(In a letter from Einstein to Curie) Do not laugh at me for writing you without having anything sensible to say. But I am so enraged by the base manner in which the publc is presently daring to concern itself with you that I absolutely must give vent to this feeling. I am impelled to tell you how much I have come to admire your intellect, your drive, and your honesty, and that I consider myself lucky to have made your personal acquaintance in Brussels. Anyone who does not number among these reptiles is certainly happy, now as before, that we have such personages amoung us as you, and Langevin too, real peole with whom one feels privileged to be in contact. If the rabble continues to occupy itself with you, then simply dont read that hogwash, but rather leave it to the reptile for whom it has been fabricated."
Author: Walter Isaacson
35. "At my urgent request the Curie laboratory, in which radium was discovered a short time ago, was shown to me. The Curies themselves were away travelling. It was a cross between a stable and a potato-cellar, and, if I had not seen the worktable with the chemical apparatus, I would have thought it a practical joke.(Wilhelm Ostwald on seeing the Curie's laboratory facilities.)"
Author: Wilhelm, Ostwald

As for the third Official Reason: exposing Western Hypocrisy - how much more exposed can they be? Which decent human being on earth harbors any illusions about it? These are people whose histories are spongy with the blood of others. Colonialism, apartheid, slavery, ethnic cleansing, germ warfare, chemical weapons - they virtually invented it all."
