And so they learn not to feel, to grow and maintain a poker-faced whimsy toward all the surprising things their fellow humans find to do to each other. All cops practice not-feeling, and it may be that Miami cops are better at it than others, since they have so many opportunities to learn."

You come back from the night with your head and your soul empty, and bad things try to fill you up. There's a lot to get exercised about, if you let it. But if you've got a task, something to fill your head and move your limbs, by the time you've finished it the day has begun ands you're onto the next thing. You're over the hump, like I said."

There are different reasons and justifications to lie; it's human nature."

39. "Dünya, benim gibi insanlarla dolu mahallelerden meydana gelseydi, bir beton çölüne dönerdi. Insanligin ve insansizligin yüz karasiydim. Kendime acimak istedim. Mutlak bir ümitsizlige düsmek istedim. Belki tam düstükten sonra çikmak kolay olurdu. Fakat, bütün bu düsündüklerimin, kelimelerden ibaret oldugunu biliyordum. Pencereye yaklastim, basimi yukari kaldirarak gökyüzüne baktim. Ay oradaydi. Bildigim ay. Hayir, ben adam olmazdim. Gerçek bir aci duydugumdan bile kuskum vardi."

Author: Paul Valéry
41. "Time passes, as the novelist says. The single most useful trick of fiction for our repair and refreshment: the defeat of time. A century of family saga and a ride up an escalator can take the same number of pages. Fiction sets any conversion rate, then changes it in a syllable. The narrator's mother carries her child up the stairs and the reader follows, for days. But World War I passes in a paragraph. I needed 125 pages to get from Labor Day to Christmas vacation. In six more words, here's spring."
Author: Richard Powers

Kaum proletar seperti ini mudah diatasi, tidak sistematis dan jelas tidak memiliki visi misi, tinggal digertak, beres. Bayangkan ketika kota dipenuhi orang yang terlalu kaya, dan terus rakus menelan sumber daya di sekitarnya. Mereka sistematis, bisa membayar siapa saja untuk menjadi kepanjangan tangan, tidak takut dengan apapun. Sungguh tidak ada yang bisa menghentikan mereka selain sistem itu sendiri yang merusak mereka."
Author: Tere Liye
47. "Her experience had been of a kind to teach her, rightly or wrongly, that the doubtful honor of a brief transit through a sorry world hardly called for effusiveness, even when the path was suddenly irradiated at some half-way point by daybeams rich as hers. But her strong sense that neither she nor any human being deserved less than was given, did not blind her to the fact that there were others receiving less who had deserved much more. And in being forced to class herself among the fortunate she did not cease to wonder at the persistence of the unforeseen, when the one to whom such unbroken tranquility had been accorded in the adult stage was she whose youth had seemed to teach that happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain."
Author: Thomas Hardy
48. "The law proposed by Valerius forbade that anyone who had appealed should be scourged with rods or beheaded, but if the law was disregarded on either point it did no more than term it 'a wicked deed'. Such was the sense of shame amongst men at that time that this, I suppose, was thought to impose a legal sanction which would be sufficiently binding. Today hardly anyone would seriously utter such a threat."
Author: Titus Livy

Author: Tori Amos

I will beat the odds, as great as they are. I have survived so far, miraculously. Now I will turn miracle into routine. The amazing will be seen everyday. I will put in all the hard work necessary. Yes, so long as God is with me, I will not die. Amen."
Author: Yann Martel
