1. "She was opinionated without being pushy. When choosing a book to read aloud, she would try to interest him in those spunky English heroines she liked so much. He proposed Thucydides, but he understood how she, being a Quaker, did not want to read about the Peloponnesian War. They came together on Henry James."
Author: Barbara Wright
2. "But, Jefferson worried that the people - and the argument goes back to Thucydides and Aristotle - are easily misled. He also stressed, passionately and repeatedly, that it was essential for the people to understand the risks and benefits of government, to educate themselves, and to involve themselves in the political process. Without that, he said, the wolves will take over."
Author: Carl Sagan
3. "Rewolucja - to brzmi bardzo romantycznie, ale takim nie jest. rewolucja to krew, flaki i obled; to male dzieci, które zabito, bo akurat wlazly pod nogi; male dzieci, które nie sa w stanie zrozumiec, co sie tu, do kurwy nedzy, dzieje; to twoja dziwka, to twoja zona, której bagnetem rozpruto brzuch, a potem zgwalcono w dupe na twych oczach; to ludzie, którzy kiedys smiali sie na filmach z Myszka Miki, a teraz torturuja swych pobratymców, zanim sie wiec na to zdecydujesz, to wczesniej zastanów sie, dokad moze zaprowadzic uniesienie i co z niego zostanie, gdy juz bedzie po wszystkim"
Author: Charles Bukowski
4. "The room was two-tiered,its marble balconies filled with rams and water nymphs in fancydress; a kaleidoscope of colours swayed in time to the beat ofhypnotic music. A concerto of absent musicians, it played only inher mind. The numerous chandeliers with sculptured metal frameshung down from chains, with endless fireflies attached. At the farend stretched a grand staircase, dressed with a plush velvet carpetin deep cerise, and ceiling paintings edged with gold embosseddado rails clung to the walls.Then Eve honed in on herself and saw that she wore a crushedwhite taffeta A-line gown that fit her trim figure like a glove. Herbutterfly mask with floral patterns embroidered in red and goldsilk sat against her pale skin, her reflection like that of a porcelaindoll. A matching shawl rested softly on her shoulders. Everythingwas so beautiful that she almost totally lost herself in the mirror'sreflection."(little snippet from our book)"

5. "W malej jadalni, tuz obok, ujrzalem ojca, który chodzil od jednej sciany do drugiej. Widac bylo, ze jeszcze nie wypracowal sobie odpowiedniej postawy, ze nie byl do konca gotów na te okolicznosc. Byc moze czekal, az wydarzenia same sie wyklaruja, i ze latwiej mu bedzie wtedy cos postanowic. Trwal tak, i stal jak nad przepascia, niezdecydowany. Ludzie przechodza od jednej sztuki do drugiej. W miedzyczasie sztuka nie jest jeszcze gotowa, a ludzie nie potrafia dobrze jeszcze odróznic jej zarysów, nie znaja ról, jakie maja w niej odegrac, wiec stoja tak, z opuszczonymi rekami, przed tym, co sie dzieje na ich oczach, z instynktem zlozonym jak parasol, poruszajac sie niezbornie, zredukowani do samych siebie, to znaczy, ze zredukowani do nicosci."
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
6. "12. Historians today rely on classics like Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War, Caesar's Gallic War, and Tacitus's Histories. The earliest copies we have for these date from 1,300, 900, and 700 years after the original writing, respectively, and there are eight extant copies of the first, ten of the second, and two of the third. In contrast, the earliest copy of Mark's gospel is dated at AD 130 (a century after the original writing), and there are 5,000 ancient Greek copies, along with nearly 20,000 Latin and other ancient manuscripts. The sheer volume of ancient manuscripts provides sufficient comparison between copies to provide an accurate reproduction of the original text. Ironically, a number of fashionable scholars attracted to the so-called gnostic gospels as an "alternative Christianity" have far fewer manuscripts, and the original writings cannot be dated any earlier than a century after the canonical Gospels."
Author: Michael S. Horton
7. "Half of these aren't even Machiavelli.Some are Plato, Thucydides etc....doesnt anyone check these?"

8. "Wykonywana w polowie praca- mówil mi kiedys- wyrazane w polowie mysli, pólgrzesznicy i pólswieci doprowadzili ten swiat do oplakanego stanu, w jakim dzis sie znajduje. Idz prosto do celu, wal smialo, nie bój sie, azwyciezysz! Bóg bardziej nienawidzi diabla od arcydiabla."
Author: Nikos Kazantsakis
9. "I believe it has been said that one copy of The Times contains more useful information than the whole of the historical works of Thucydides."
Author: Richard Cobden
10. "I wanted to be Gene Kelly. Well really, I just wanted to dance with Cyd Charisse."

11. "Szalenstwo ma w sobie pewien urok. Wyjsc z domu po chleb i wyjechac do innego miasta, poznac rano dziewczyne i wieczorem wziac z nia slub, zdecydowanym ruchem otworzyc drzwi do ciemnego pokoju, z którego dobiegaja podejrzane dzwieki, wejsc do klatki hipopotama i poklepac go po tlustym zadzie, pojechac do Tajlandii i uprawiac seks bez prezerwatywy, przyjac propozycje tajemniczego nieznajomego i podpisac sie krwia na czystej kartce papieru. Jednym slowem, rzucenie sie na zlamanie karku ku przygodzie to bardzo kuszaca wizja."
Author: Sergei Lukyanenko
12. "One who, though he never digress to read a Lecture, Moral or Political, upon his own Text, nor enter into men's hearts, further than the Actions themselves evidently guide him…filleth his Narrations with that choice of matter, and ordereth them with that Judgement, and with such perspicuity and efficacy expresseth himself that (as Plutarch saith) he maketh his Auditor a Spectator. For he setteth his Reader in the Assemblies of the People, and in their Senates, at their debating; in the Streets, at their Seditions; and in the Field, at their Battels.Quoted by Shelby Foote in his The Civil War: A Narrative – Volume 2: Fredericksburg to Meridian, Bibliographical Note, from Thomas Hobbes' Forward to Hobbes' translation of The Peloponnesian War by Thucydides"
