1. "I signed up with Kundalini yoga teacher training, which has been shifting me in some really beautiful ways."
Author: Angela Lindvall
2. "Quietism, Buddhism, and other religions, everything which denies the flesh—is the great inferiority to God in ourselves, an escapism seeking sanctuary through fear of life and inability to accept 'this reality'. They were hurt? Or was the odalisque unsatisfactory or too expensive? They expected too much for too little, or were too mean to pay—therefore: "All is illusion". But the Stoic smilingly awaits the next shower of shit from heaven. Stoics are not Saviours, Saints or Heroes and are often confused and weary, yet they prefer to find their own way and to accept life as they find it. The schizophrenics, the melancholics and psychotics—they at least are secretive and inflict no religions on others. They prove the possibilities and utilities of 'as if' when totally accepted."
Author: Austin Osman Spare
3. "Brandalism Any advertisement in public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It belongs to you. It's yours to take, rearrange and re-use. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head."
Author: Banksy
4. "...kapag binisita ka ng idea, gana o inspirasyon, kailangan mong itigil LAHAT ng ginagawa mo para lang di masayang ang pagkakataon. Walang "sandali lang" o "teka muna". Dahil pag lumagpas ang maikling panahong yon, kahit mag-umpog ka ng ulo sa pader mahihirapan ka nang maghabol."

Your face reminds me of someone dear to me.""Really?" wizened Cadilar said, hesitating."Yes," Wit said, waving him on, "my horse. Ah, Brightlord Neteb, you smell unique today—did youattack a wet whitespine, or did one just sneeze on you? Lady Alami! No, please, don't speak—it's mucheasier to maintain my illusions regarding your intelligence that way. And Brightlord Dalinar." Wit noddedto Dalinar as he passed. "Ah, my dear Brightlord Taselin. Still engaged in your experiment to prove amaximum threshold of human idiocy? Good for you! Very empirical of you."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
6. "London was a graveyard haunted by dead faiths. A city and a landscape. A market laid on feudalisms. Gathering and hunting, little pockets of alterity, too, but most of all in the level Billy had come to live in a tilework of fiefdoms, theocratic duchies, zones and spheres of influences, over each of which some local despot, some criminal pope, sat watch. It was all who-knew-whom, gave access to what, greased which palms on what route to where."
Author: China Miéville
7. "If reading counted as a sport, I'd be a gold medalist."
Author: Deb Caletti
8. "Crowds, Scott said. People trudging along wide streets, pushing carts or riding bikes, crowd after crowd in the long lens of the camera so they seem even closer together than they really are, totally jampacked, and I think of how they merge with the future, how the future makes room for the non-achiever, the trudger, the nonagressor, the nonindividual. Totally calm in the long lens, crowd on top of crowd, pedaling, trudging, faceless, sort of surviving nicely."
Author: Don DeLillo
9. "Ne nismo mi bili ljubavnici. Nikad… Samo smo se ponekad malo gledali, kad nas nisu gledali. I to je sve… Oboje smo na lancicu nosili po polovinu davno polomljene tajne, ali nismo pokušavali da je sastavimo. Ko zna zašto, ta je tajna lebdelanad desetogodišnjim okeanom prošlog vremena, kao ukleta lada. Negde ovde, daleko. Negde tamo, blizu. Ni na nebu, ni na zemlji… Nismo mi bili ljubavnici. Nikad. Samo smo se ponekad u dugim nocima punog meseca malo tražili po talasnim dužinama ceznje. I to je sve…"

12. "Unceasing warfare gives rise to its own social conditions which have been similar in all epochs. People enter a permanent state of alertness to ward off attacks. You see the absolute rule of the autocrat. All new things become dangerous frontier districts—new planets, new economic areas to exploit, new ideas or new devices, visitors—everything suspect. Feudalism takes firm hold, sometimes disguised as a politbureau or similar structure, but always present. Hereditary succession follows the lines of power. The blood of the powerful dominates."
Author: Frank Herbert
13. "<…> jauciausi šito organizmo dalis, jauciau kažkoki keista artuma šeštos valandos sumaišciai ir tukstanciams žmoniu, kurie buvo priversti kasdien kariauti su beprasmybe, nuoboduliu ir savo vienatve."
Author: Gabija Grušaite
14. "Reality wasn't a syllogism like "Socrates is a man—all men are mortal—hence Socrates is mortal," but more like "Helga is a human being—all telephone booths have been vandalized—hence Helga must die." Or like: "Hitler is a human being—all Jews are animals—hence all Jews must die."
Author: Harry Mulisch

Author: Heru Kristiawan
16. "Growing up in Alaska, they don't really teach you to swim there. I learned to swim just a few summers ago with Olympic gold medalist Amanda Beard. She did great, and right after that I went to get scuba certified. I had fun with it. I didn't really get scared, but some people thought that was a risk."
Author: Holly Madison
17. "There was no sign of life round the domed emplacement of the Moonraker, and the concrete, already beginning to shimmer in the early morning sun, stretched emptily away towards Deal. It looked like a newly laid aerodome or rather, he thought, with its three disparate concrete 'things', the beehive dome,the flat-iron blast-wall, and the distant cube of the firing point, each casting black pools of shadow towards him in the early sun, like a Dali desert landscape in which three objets trouves reposed at carefully calculated random."
Author: Ian Fleming
18. "Kate makes good sausage," Jim said.Six pairs of eyes stared at me. Thank you, Mr. Wonderful. Just what I needed."Oh yeah," Andrea snapped her fingers. "The links? The ones we had the beginning of the month? I didn't know you made those. I thought they were bought. They were so good." Her smile was positively cherubic. Of all the times not to be able to shoot laser beams out of my eyes..."What do you put into your sausage, Kate?" Raphael wanted to know, giving me a perfectly innocent look.Werejaguars with big mouths with a pinch of werehyena thrown in. "Venison and rabbit.""That sounds like some fine sausage," Doolittle said. "Will you share the recipe?""Sure.""I had no idea you were a sausage expert," Curran said with a completely straight face.Die, die, die, die...Even Derek cracked a smile. Raphael put his head down on the table and jerked a little."Is he choking?" Dali asked, wrinkling her forehead."No, he just needs a moment," Curran said. "Young bouda males. Easily excitable."
Author: Ilona Andrews
19. "Andrea turned her back to Desandra and rolled her eyes. Raphael grimaced. They both looked scandalized. Dear God, what could she have said to scandalize a bouda..."No, really!" Desandra nodded. "Okay, so most guys don't have a nice ball sack, right? It looks all hairy and wrinkled like some small animal died between their legs, but Gerardo's is like two plums in a velvet bag..."Derek, who'd been lingering in the doorway, took a careful step to the left behind the wall and disappeared from my view.Kill me, somebody. I raised my hand. "Hold that thought. I need to borrow Andrea for a minute."I grabbed her arm and pulled her into the hallway. Behind us Raphael growled, "Don't leave me!"Andrea leaned towards me. "Plums.""Listen..."Andrea raised her hands, imitating holding plums the size of small coconuts, and moved them up and down."
Author: Ilona Andrews
20. "A lifetime's experience urges me to utter a warning cry: do anything else, take someone's golden retriever for a walk, run away with a saxophone player. Perhaps what's wrong with being a writer is that one can't even say 'good luck'--luck plays no part in the writing of a novel. No happy accidents as with the paint pot or chisel. I don't think you can say anything, really. I've always wanted to juggle and ride a unicycle, but I dare say if I ever asked the advice of an acrobat he would say, 'All you do is get on and start pedaling'."
Author: J.G. Ballard
21. "Ineluctable modality of the visible: at least that if no more, thought through my eyes. Signatures of all things I am here to read, seaspawn and seawrack, the nearing tide, that rusty boot. Snotgreen, bluesilver, rust: coloured signs. Limits of the diaphane. But he adds: in bodies. Then he was aware of them bodies before of them coloured. How? By knocking his sconce against them, sure. Go easy. Bald he was and a millionaire, MAESTRODI COLOR CHE SANNO. Limit of the diaphane in. Why in? Diaphane, adiaphane. If you can put your five fingers through it it is a gate, if not a door. Shut your eyes and see."
Author: James Joyce
22. "Her fingers moved among barnacles and mussels, blue-black, sharp-edged. Neon red starfish were limp Dalis on the rocks, surrounded by bouquets of stinging anemones and purple bursts of spiny sea urchins."
Author: Janet Fitch
23. "Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations, that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free and undivided Republic."
Author: John A. Logan
24. "I see a creative process as a necessarily thievish undertaking. Dig beneath a beautiful piece of writing, Monsieur Boustouler, and you will find all manner of dishonor. Creating means vandalizing the lives of other people, turning them into unwilling and unwitting participants. You steal their desires, their dreams, pocket their flaws, their suffering. You take what does not belong to you. You do this knowingly."
Author: Khaled Hosseini
25. "I could go on to speak of sanity as compared with insanity, decency as compared with vandalism, friendship as compared with rabies."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Author: Mev Puleo
29. "A morte é uma brevíssima varanda.Dali se espreita o tempo como a águia se debruça no penhasco- em volta todo o espaço se pode converter em esplêndida voação."
Author: Mia Couto
30. "All that's needed now is a great novel that will capture the imagination of the public - move them, enrage them, thrill them, terrify them, scandalize them. A story that will seize them by the hand and lead them into the streets where they've never dared set foot, a tale that throws back the sheets from acts never shown and voices never heard. A tale that fearlessly points the finger at those who are to blame..."
Author: Michael Farber
31. "One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered."
Author: Michael J. Fox
32. "My goal is one Olympic gold medal. Not many people in this world can say, 'I'm an Olympic gold medalist.'"
Author: Michael Phelps
33. "Je voudrais bien savoir pourquoi les gens qui se scandalisent si fort de la comédie de Molière ne disent mot de celle de Scaramouche.""La raison de cela, c'est que la comédie de Scaramouche joue le ciel et la religion, dont ces messieurs-là ne se soucient point; mais celle de Molière les joue eux-mêmes; c'est ce qu'ils ne peuvent souffrir."
Author: Molière
34. "A boy told meif he roller-skated fast enoughhis loneliness couldn't catch up to him,the best reason I ever heard for trying to be a champion.What I wonder tonightpedaling hard down King William Streetis if it translates to bicycles.A victory! To leave your lonelinesspanting behind you on some street cornerwhile you float free into a cloud of sudden azaleas,pink petals that have never felt loneliness,no matter how slowly they fell."
Author: Naomi Shihab Nye

Author: Nick Vujicic
37. "Pedaling down the maple lined drive, quicksilver temper ebbed, her resilient spirits were lifted with the beauty of the day. The valley was stirring with life. Small clusters of fragile violets and red clover dotted the rolling meadows. Lines of fresh laundry waved in the early breeze. The boundary of mountains was tooped by a winter's coat, not yet the soft, lush green it would be in a month's time, but patched with stark black trees and the intermittent color of pines. Clouds scudded thin and white across the sky, chased by the teasing wind which whispered of spring and fresh blossoms."
Author: Nora Roberts
38. "Sadyang mailap ang humanap ng tunay na pag-ibig. Madaling sabihing mahal kita, madaling isiping mahal ka niya, pero paano mo malalamang... ito na, eto na talaga?"
Author: Ramon Bautista
39. "Lucky Charms?" I asked."Magically delicious," he explained. "Requisite for any sort of building project."I shook my head, still amazed at how he had managed to weasel his way over here. "This isn't a date."He cut me a scandalized look. "Obviously. I'd bring Count Chocula for that."
Author: Richelle Mead
40. "I suppose you mean to scandalize society by announcing your betrothal to Miss Butterfield tonight.""Of course," Oliver said, without a trace of irritation. "Unless you'd rather do it yourself. I'm more than happy to hand the office over to you, Gran. Maria and I will just nod and smile while you get all the glory for making the match."Mercy. Talk about throwing down the gauntlet. Mrs. Plumtree's mouth fell open. Then snapped shut. When she spoke again, her voice sounded strained, though Maria could have sworn she caught a gleam in the elderly lady's eye. "Perhaps I will. God knows you won't do it properly.""Go ahead." His eyes said, I dare you.There was a trace of smugness on his face now, as if he knew he was on the verge of winning.A tense quiet fell over the carriage. Clearly Mrs. Plumtree and Oliver were each waiting for the other to back down."
Author: Sabrina Jeffries
41. "Kind of what?" Gordon challenged, cutting his eyes to Kevin even as a mental image of himself in the back of Aiden's truck popped into his mind. Shredded jeans in a ball on the floorboard and riding the Outlaw with the athleticism of an Olympic gold medalist in ass fucking."
Author: Santino Hassell

44. "When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were thing like astronaut, president, or in my case… princess.When we were ten, they asked again and we answered - rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist. But now that we've grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how 'bout this: who the hell knows?!This isn't the time to make hard and fast decisions, its time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere chill. Fall in love - a lot. Major in philosophy 'cause there's no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again, because nothing is permanent.So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be… we won't have to guess. We'll know.[from the movie]"
Author: Stephenie Meyer
45. "Cinta bukan sekedar memaafkan. cinta bukan sekedar soal menerima apa adanya. cinta adalah harga diri. cinta adalah rasionalitas sempurna.Jika kau memahami cinta adalah perasaan irasional, sesuatu yang tidak masuk akal, tidak butuh penjelasan, maka cepat atau lambat, luka itu akan kembali menganga. kau dengan mudah membenarkan apapun yang terjadi di hati, tanpa tahu, tanpa memberikan kesempatan berpikir bahwa itu boleh jadi karena kau tidak mampu mengendalikan perasaan tersebut. tidak lebih, tidak kurang"
Author: Tere Liye

Author: Tullian Tchividjian
47. "Perlu diingatkan bahawa oleh kerana al-Quran datangnya daripada Allah dan ilmu dan hikmah-Nya yang disampaikan dalam al-Quran tidak terbatas kepada atau dihabiskan oleh sesuatu masyarakat dan sejarahnya, maka tujuan pendekatan sosiologi bukanlah untuk mengaitkan hikmah Ilahi dan menghadkannya kepada detik-detik sosiosejarah yang khusus. Tujuanya ialah untuk memperakui kebijaksanaan-Nya mengendalikan makhluk-Nya yang wujud dan bertindak tanpa peralatan yang terdapat dalam dunia perseptual dan konseptual."
Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
48. "The ladies egged him on; in Eve's name, they dared him; so he made love with discreet verbs and light nouns, delicate conjunctions. They begged; they defied him to define...define everything. They could not be scandalized—impossible, they said. Indecent prepositions such as in, on, up, merely made them smile, and the roundest exclamation broke upon them like a bubble's kiss, a butterfly's. Smooth and creamy adjectives enabled them to lick their lips upon the crudest story. How charmingly you speak, Reverend Furber, how much you've seen of this wicked world, and how alive you are to it, they said."
Author: William H. Gass
49. "Kokia teise jis turi ka nors teisti? Žinoma, kažkiek jis iš tikruju yra kaltas, kad teise beveik visus, kuriuos sutikdavo, ir daug tu, kuriu ne nebuvo mates. Makas žinojo, kad didžiausia jo kalte - jo egocentrizmas. Tad kaip jis gali teisti kita? Visi jo vertinimai - paviršutiniški, paremti išvaizda ir elgesiu, kuriuos galima aiškinti taip, kad pasijustum pranašesnis, saugesnis arba kokios nors grupes dalis. Jam taip pat buvo aišku, kad jis bijo."
Author: Wm. Paul Young
50. "In 1998, a year or two after I started skating, I saw Michelle Kwan at the Nagano Olympics. I liked her a lot. And I could remember every part of her performance. She was the world champion many times over a long period. And although not a gold medalist, there is no skater as respected and recognized as her. So I wanted to become someone like her."
