Author: Alexandre Dumas

3. "So far, then," said Danglars, mentally, "all has gone as I would have it. I am, temporarily, commander of the Pharaon, with the certainty of being permanently so, if that fool of a Caderousse can be persuaded to hold his tongue. My only fear is the chance of Dantes being released. But, there, he is in the hands of Justice; and," added he with a smile, "she will take her own." So saying, he leaped into a boat, desiring to be rowed on board the Pharaon, where M. Morrel had agreed to meet him."

5. "Dantes had entered the Chateau d'If with the round, open, smiling face of a young and happy man, with whom the earlypaths of life have been smooth. and who anticipates a future corresponding with his past. This was now all changed. The oval face was lengthened, his smiling mouth had assumed the firm and markedlines which betoken resolution; his eyebrows were arched beneath a brow furrowed with thought; his eyes were full of melancholy, and from their depths occasionally sparkled gloomy fires of misanthropy and hatred; his complexion, so long kept from the sun, had now that pale color which produces, when the features are encircled with black hair, the aristocratic beauty of the man of the north; the profound learning he had acquired had besides diffused over his features a refined intellectual expression; and he had also acquired, being naturally of a goodly stature, that vigor which a frame possesses which has so long concentrated all its force within itself."
Author: Alexandre Dumas
6. "Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget that until the day when God shall deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is summed up in these two words,—'Wait and hope.'—Your friend, "Edmond Dantes, Count of Monte Cristo."

Author: Alexandre Dumas
9. "Come, then, thou regenerate man, thou extravagant prodigal, thou awakened sleeper, thou all-powerful visionary, thou invincible millionaire,--once again review thy past life of starvation and wretchedness, revisit the scenes where fate and misfortune conducted, and where despair received thee. Too many diamonds, too much gold and splendor, are now reflected by the mirror in which Monte Cristo seeks to behold Dantes. Hide thy diamonds, bury thy gold, shroud thy splendor, exchange riches for poverty, liberty for a prison, a living body for a corpse!"
Author: Alexandre Dumas

Author: Antonio Cavanillas De Blas
14. "Narnia, Narnia, Narnia, despierta. Ama. Piensa. Habla. Sed Árboles Andantes. Sed Bestias Parlantes. Sed Aguas Divinas."
Author: C.S. Lewis
15. "I hadn't gone to Andover, or Horace Mann or Eton. My high school had been the average kind, and I'd been the best student there. Such was not the case at Eli. Here, I was surrounded by geniuses. I'd figured out early in my college career that there were people like Jenny and Brandon and Lydia and Josh—truly brilliant, truly luminous, whose names would appear in history books that my children and grandchildren would read, and there were people like George and Odile—who through beauty and charm and personality would make the cult of celebrity their own. And then there were people like me. People who, through the arbitrary wisdom of the admissions office, might share space with the big shots for four years, might be their friends, their confidantes, their associates, their lovers—but would live a life well below the global radar. I knew it, and over the years, I'd come to accept it.And I understood that it didn't make them any better than me."
Author: Diana Peterfreund
16. "Dès l'enfance, je percevais l'écoulement des heures, indépendantes de tout référence, de tout acte et de tout événement, la disjonction du temps de ce qui n'était pas lui, son existence autonome, son statut particulier, son empire, sa tyrannie. Je me rappelle on ne peut plus clairement cet après-midi où, por la première fois, en face de l'univers vacant, je n'étais plus que fuite d'instants rebelles à remplir encore leur fonction propre. Le temps se décollait de l'être à mes dépens."
Author: Emil Cioran
17. "Lagrimas ocultas Lagrimas ocultasSe me ponho a cismar em outras erasEm que ri e cantei, em que era q'rida,Parece-me que foi noutras esferas,Parece-me que foi numa outra vida...E a minha triste boca doloridaQue dantes tinha o rir das Primaveras,Esbate as linhas graves e severasE cai num abandono de esquecida!E fico, pensativa, olhando o vago...Toma a brandura plácida dum lagoO meu rosto de monja de marfim...E as lágrimas que choro, branca e calma,Ninguém as vê brotar dentro da alma!Ninguém as vê cair dentro de mim!"
Author: Florbela Espanca
18. "James Potter moved slowly along the narrow aisles of the train, peering as nonchalantly as he could into each compartment. To those inside, he probably looked as if he was searching for someone, some friend or group of confidantes with whom to pass the time during the trip, and this was intentional. The last thing that James wanted anyone to notice was that, despite the bravado he had so recently displayed with his younger brother Albus on the platform, he was nervous. His stomach knotted and churned as if he'd had half a bite of one of Uncles Ron and George's Puking Pastilles."
Author: G. Norman Lippert
19. "Why would you love us? You didn't raise us. You've known us only as long as you've known your coya. Why do you care?"He wiped his hand over his face wearily. "I've known you for nearly seven years, Ash," he sighed. "Your coya talked of little else but five young girls that were her best friends. Her confidantes. Her family. In those years, she made me love you as fiercely perhaps as she does." He shook his head. "You are Coyote Breeds. You are not simply coyotes. You are not unfeeling animals, and you're worth more than a fucking funeral. Are we clear on this?"
Author: Lora Leigh
20. "I was under the librarians' protection. Civil servants and servants of civility, they had my back. The would be whatever they needed to be that day: information professionals, teachers, police, community organizers, computer technicians, historians, confidantes, clerks, social workers, storytellers, or, in this case, guardians of my peace."
Author: Marilyn Johnson
21. "Muchos son los andantes," dijo Sancho.Muchos," respondió don Quijote, "pero pocos los que merecen nombre de caballeros."
Author: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
22. "Amanda olhou para ele - Tens de compreender que já não sou a rapariga que era dantes. Sou casada e sou mãe e, tal como toda a gente, não sou perfeita. Debato-me com as escolhas que fiz e cometo erros e passo grande parte do tempo a interrogar-me sobre quem sou realmente ou se a minha vida tem algum significado sequer. Não sou de modo nenhum uma pessoa especial, Dawson, e tens de perceber isso. Tens de compreender que sou apenas... uma pessoa vulgar."
Author: Nicholas Sparks

25. "Ich war noch nicht ein bißchen abgestumpft, ich war noch so ganz gewohnt, in einem Rechtsstaat zu leben, daß ich damals vieles für die tiefste Hölle hielt, was ich später höchstens für ihren Vorhof, für den Danteschen Limbo nahm. Immerhin: soviel schlimmer es auch kommen sollte, alles, was sich noch später an Gesinnung, an Tat und Sprache des Nazismus hinzufand, das zeichnet sich in seinen Ansätzen schon in diesen ersten Monaten ab."
Author: Victor Klemperer
26. "Be cautious then, young ladies; be wary how you engage. Be shy of loving frankly; never tell all you feel, or (a better way still), feel very little. See the consequences of being prematurely honest and confiding, and mistrust yourselves and everybody. Get yourselves married as they do in France, where the lawyers are the bridesmaids and confidantes. At any rate, never have any feelings which may make you uncomfortable, or make any promises which you cannot at any required moment command and withdraw. That is the way to get on, and be respected, and have a virtuous character in Vanity Fair."
Author: William Makepeace Thackeray
