1. "VERSO DECORATIVOLa niña vio a la luna en el azul estanqueQue en medio de los pinos servía de pecera.(Piernas de cazadora, suelta la cabellera,Y el fino seno blanco celoso de su arranque).De un elástico salto llegó junto a la fuente,Hundió las blancas manos, tomó el disco de oro,Y al cargar junto al cuello el redondo tesoro,La cabellera negra se le tornó luciente.Y huyó bajo las selvas. Su grito de alegríaHasta los dulces nidos de las aves subía,E, iluminando el bosque perfumado, la vieron,Cargada de la luna, pasar los abedules,Y siguiendo en el aire la curva de sus tulesEjércitos de pájaros cantando la siguieron."
Author: Alfonsina Storni

Con Cassia en la Loma: Sólo que entonces era yo mismo."

5. "Creí que podría describir una <>, elaborar un mapa de la tristeza. Pero la tristeza no se ha revelado sino como un proceso. No es un mapa lo que requiere, es una historia; y si no dejo de escribir esta historia en un momento determinado, por caprichoso que sea, no habría razón para que dejara de escribir nunca. La pena es como un valle dilatado y sinuoso, que a cada curva puede revelar un paisaje totalmente nuevo. Pero no todas las curvas lo hacen, como ya he dejado dicho. A veces la sorpresa que recibimos es justamente la contraria; se nos brinda una clase de panorama idéntico al que creíamos haber dejado muchas millas atrás. Entonces es cuando se pregunta uno si el valle no será una trinchera circular. No lo es. Se dan recurrencias parciales, pero la misma secuencia no se repite."
Author: C.S. Lewis
6. "I don't know what position you're talking about, sir. The Gnomon Society has never questioned the rotundity of the earth. Mr. Jimmerson is himself a skilled topographer.""Excuse me, Mr. Popper, but I have it right here in Mr. Jimmerson's own words on page twenty-nine of 101 Gnomon Facts.""No, sir. Excuse me but you don't. Please look again. Read that passage carefully and you'll see what we actually say is that the earth looks flat. We still say that. It's so flat around Brownsville as to be striking to the eye.""But isn't that just a weasel way of saying that you really believe if to be flat?""Not at all. What we're saying is that the curvature of the earth is so gentle, relative to our human scale of things, that we need not bother or take it into account when going for a stroll, say, or laying out our gardens."
Author: Charles Portis

Author: David Deutsch

Author: Frances Partridge
17. "O motorista fez uma curva fechada à esquerda, saiu da pista e entrou numa estradinha de terra, no meio de algumas árvores, parando em seguida. Ele nos jogou para fora do carro e ordenou que o seguíssemos. Obedecemos. Tínhamos uma arma apontada para nosso rosto. Não era a casa de papai, era o fim da linha. Aguardava-me uma morte súbita, violenta, matinal - no dia em que pisei na terra dos meus antepassados. Uma morte não de todo dessemelhante à que eu provocara, não fazia muito tempo. Seria justo, certo? Um carma honesto e quase instantâneo. Eu me perguntava se sairíamos nos jornais ingleses, se minha mãe forneceria fotos nossas."
Author: Hanif Kureishi

Gazing down at his sweetie with the face of a saint reading the works of God. Hold on, maiden, you've got him. He's your boy. Look out, Puggy, that isn't a maiden you see before you, it's a work of imagination. Nail him, girlie. Nail him to the contract. Fly laddie, fly off with your darling vision before she turns into a frow, who spends all her life thinking of what the neighbours think."
Author: Joyce Cary
23. "Our world is so complex that we take for granted engineering processes that would dwarf any of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World; we ride railroad tracks that do not follow faithfully the curvature of the earth, for the train would jump the tracks if they were level. We pass skyscrapers whose stress and strain are figured to the millionth of an inch, yet take for granted that the Empire State Building actually sways constantly many feet. If we are religiously inclined, we take going to the church of our choice for granted; if we are non believers, we give no second thought to the fact that we do not have to attend religious services if we do not choose. Yet the very privilege of non-belief represents the victory of philosophy; otherwise the non-churchgoer would still face the lions or the stake."
Author: Kahlil Gibran

28. "Everything in physiology follows the rule that too much can be as bad as too little. There are optimal points of allostatic balance. For example, while a moderate amount of exercise generally increases bone mass, thirty-year-old athletes who run 40 to 50 miles a week can wind up with decalcified bones, decreased bone mass, increased risk of stress fractures and scoliosis (sideways curvature of the spine)—their skeletons look like those of seventy-year-olds. To put exercise in perspective, imagine this: sit with a group of hunter-gatherers from the African grasslands and explain to them that in our world we have so much food and so much free time that some of us run 26 miles in a day, simply for the sheer pleasure of it. They are likely to say, "Are you crazy? That's stressful." Throughout hominid history, if you're running 26 miles in a day, you're either very intent on eating someone or someone's very intent on eating you."
Author: Robert M. Sapolsky

Dentro...una ráfaga de calor recorrió el cuerpo de Georgie. Estaba a punto de derretirse."
Author: Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Quiero ser el amigo que cae perdidamente enamorado. El que te tiene en sus brazos y en su cama y que en tu mundo privado se mantiene atrapado en tu cabeza. Yo quiero ser esa clase de amigo —dice—. El que va a memorizar las cosas que dices, así como la forma de tus labios cuando las dices. Quiero conocer cada curva, cada peca, cada estremecimiento de tu cuerpo"
Author: Tahereh Mafi

Author: Terry Pratchett
33. "No, not of course at all—it is really all hocus-pocus. The days lengthen in the winter-time, and when the longest comes, the twenty-first of June, the beginning of summer, they begin to go downhill again, toward winter. You call that ‘of course'; but if one once loses hold of the fact that it is of course, it is quite frightening, you feel like hanging on to something. It seems like a practical joke—that spring begins at the beginning of winter, and autumn at the beginning of summer. You feel you're being fooled, led about in a circle, with your eye fixed on something that turns out to be a moving point. A moving point in a circle. For the circle consists of nothing but such transitional points without any extent whatever; the curvature is incommensurable, there is no duration of motion, and eternity turns out to be not ‘straight ahead' but ‘merry-go-round'!"
Author: Thomas Mann
34. "The mist just keeps on lifting and soon I'll be able to see all the way, as far as the earth's curvature allows. It's a blessing, that curvature, that hidden hemisphere-if we could take it all in at one, why move?"

35. "Olía las curvas del río tras el crepúsculo y vi la última luz supina y serena sobre los charcos dejados por la marea como trozos de un espejo roto, después, tras ellos comenzaban las luces sobre el aire pálido, temblando un poco como mariposas que revoloteasen en la distancia."
Author: William Faulkner
36. "Avoid fancy words....If you admire fancy words, if every sky is beauteous, every blonde curvaceous, every intelligent child prodigious, if you are tickled by discombobulate, you will have bad time Reminder 14."
Author: William Strunk Jr.

They allow us to disrespect our Black woman. A lot of these things would be considered criminal if it were to be carried out in the streets. That's like when they tell you after you buy your VHS and you rent movies they tell you not to copy the movies."
