7. "A belligerent samurai, an old Japanese tale goes, once challenged a Zen master to explain the concept of heaven and hell. The monk replied with scorn, "You're nothing but a lout - I can't waste my time with the likes of you!"His very honor attacked, the samurai flew into a rage and, pulling his sword from its scabbard, yelled "I could kill you for your impertinence.""That," the monk calmly replied, "is hell."Startled at seeing the truth in what the master pointed out about the fury that had him in its grip, the samurai calmed down, sheathed his sword, and bowed, thanking the monk for the insight."And that,"said the monk "is heaven."The sudden awakening of the samurai to his own agitated state illustrates the crucial difference between being caught up in a feeling and becoming aware that you are being swept away by it. Socrates's injunction "Know thyself" speaks to the keystone of emotional intelligence: awareness of one's own feelings as they occur."
Author: Daniel Goleman

Author: Donna Tartt

12. "Thirty years ago [written 2009], over-regulation, over-taxation, mis-regulation, statism, state corporatism, and economic folly, cosiness and regulatory capture, and a crescent ideological enemy without, who were assisted by enemies – both fifth columnists and useful fools – within, had led to a crisis of confidence in the West, and in all lands that – and amongst all peoples, particularly those who were oppressed in their own lands, who – loved and desired liberty. Of course, thirty years ago, Britain had Margaret Thatcher to turn to."

14. "Nagyon szomorú napok következtek; komor az élet az olyan házban, mely üresnek látszik, mert örökre eltunt belole valaki, akit annyira megszoktunk, és ha kezünkbe akad a halott valamilyen kedves holmija, mindig friss fájdalommal telnek meg a napjaink. Egy-egy emlék érinti minduntalan szívünket s megsebzi. Itt a karosszéke, a napernyoje ott maradt az elocsarnokban, ez az o pohara, amelyhez a lány még hozzá sem nyúlt. És minden szobában hányódik valamilyen apróság: az ollója, egy kesztyu, az a könyv, melynek lapjait elnehezedett ujjai meggyurték; ezer semmiség fájóan jelentos lesz, mert ezer apró részletre emlékeztet. És üldöz a hangja! Azt hisszük, hogy ot halljuk. Menekülni szeretnénk, bármerre, bárhová, kiszökni ennek a háznak kísérteti közül. De maradni kell, mert mások is vannak, akik maradnak, s ok is szenvednek."
Author: Guy De Maupassant

16. "Supongo que nuestro intelecto, entre los 20 y los 25 años, encierra ya todas las opiniones que después habremos de tener y de manifestar a lo largo de nuestra vida. Pero a esa edad todavía no sabemos distinguir las opiniones que nos pertenecen en verdad de las ajenas, adoptadas por imitación, por inseguridad o por afinidad. Al avanzar en la vida descubrimos que ciertos pensamientos nos sirven de sostén en la derrota o nos ayudan a lograr alguna victoria, ya sea respecto a nosotros mismos o a los demás. A estas opiniones, que han pasado la prueba del tiempo, las llamamos convicciones y terminan por conformar nuestra identidad. Somos lo que creemos. En ocasines, somos lo que suponemos que creemos."

Author: Jon Meacham
22. "-On creating a false identity for Pheobe-"A widow," Ava insisted."How did her husband die?" Greer asked."I hardly know," Ava said with a shrug as she rocked Jonathan in her arms.

23. "Vos creés que hay una realidad postulable porque vos y yo estamos hablando en este cuarto y en esta noche, y porque vos y yo sabemos que dentro de una hora o algo así va a suceder aquí una cosa determinada. Todo eso te da una gran seguridad ontológica, me parece; te sentís bien seguro en vos mismo, bien plantado en vos mismo y en esto que te rodea. Pero si al mismo tiempo pudieras asistir a esa realidad desde mí, o desde Babs, si te fuera dada una ubicuidad, entendés, y pudieras estar ahora mismo en esta misma pieza desde donde estoy yo y con todo lo que soy y lo que he sido yo, y con todo lo que es y lo que ha sido Babs, comprenderías tal vez que tu egocentrismo barato ono te da ninguna realidad válida. Te da solamente una creencia fundada en el error, una necesidad de afirmar lo que te rodea para no caerte dentro del embudo y salir por el otro lado vaya a saber adónde."
Author: Julio Cortázar

In the astonished silence that followed, Holt lumbered toward Runnemood, who, understanding, let out a snort and stalked from the room of his own accord. Then Holt carried his outraged burdens away on either shoulder, just as they got their voices back. Bitterblue could hear them screaming their indignation all the way down the stairs."
Author: Kristin Cashore
27. "Keep that red-haired girl of yours in the open air all summer and don't let her read books until she gets more spring into her step." This message frightened Marilla wholesomely. She read Anne's death warrant by consumption in it unless it was scrupulously obeyed. As a result, Anne had the golden summer of her life as far as freedom and frolic went. She walked, rowed, berried, and dreamed to her heart's content; and when September came she was bright-eyed and alert, with a step that would have satisfied the Spencervale doctor and a heart full of ambition and zest once more. "I just feel like studying with might and main," she declared as she brought her books down from the attic. "Oh, you good old friends, I'm glad to see your honest face once more - yes, even you, geometry."
Author: L.M. Montgomery
28. "Viata fiecarui om are doua laturi: viata personala, care este cu atat mai libera, cu cat interesele sale sunt mai abstracte, si o viata elementara, de roi, in care omul, fara sa se poata sustrage, implineste legi ce i-au fost prescrise.Constient, omul traieste pentru sine, dar serveste in mod inconstient ca arma pentru atingerea telurilor istorice ale intregii omeniri. O fapta, odata savarsita, e ireversibila, si actiunea ei, concurand in timp cu milioane de actiuni ale celorlalti oameni, capata o insemnatate istorica. Cu cat sta omul mai sus pe scara sociala, cu cat este in fuctie de mai multi oameni, cu atat mai multa putere are asupra celorlalti, cu atat este mai evidenta predestinarea si caracterul neocolit al fiecareia din actiunile sale."Inima tarului e-n mainile Dumnezeirii."Tarul nu este altceva decat sclavul istoriei."
Author: Leo Tolstoy

32. "Most már többé-kevésbé helyrezökkentem; ha kell, össze tudom szedni magam, s néha négy-öt óra hosszat is egészen úgy viselkedem, mint más; de minden semmiség visszavet elobbi állapotomba: egy emlék, hely vagy szó, egy kis töprengés, s foképp a maga levelei, sot az enyémek is, amikor írom oket, valaki, aki magáról beszél: megannyi szirt, melyen szétzúzódik az önuralmam, és ilyen szirt boven akad."
Author: Madame De Sévigné
33. "I settled on the floor and whispered to Sam, "I want you to listen to me, if you can." I leaned the side of my face against his ruff and remembered the golden wood he had shown me so long ago. I remembered the way the yellow leaves, the color of Sam's eyes, fluttered and twisted, crashing butterflies, on their way to the ground. The slender white trunks of the birches, creamy and smooth as human skin. I remembered Sam standing in the middle of the wood, his arms stretched out, a dark, solid form in the dream of the trees. His coming to me, me punching his chest, the soft kiss. I remembered every kiss we'd ever had, and I remembered every time I'd curled in his human arms. I remembered the soft warmth of his breath on the back of my neck while we slept.I remembered Sam."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
34. "Our observer is not affected by emotional ups and downs, our personal life dramas, or by the events of the external world. It is our observer, at the core of our being, that teaches us to let go as we begin identify with it rather than with all the hubbub of our moment-to-moment experience and our mental chatter about it."
Author: Marcey Shapiro

42. "The Child Angel Let your life come amongst them like a flame of light, my child, unflickering and pure, and delight them into silence. They are cruel in their greed and their envy, their words are like hidden knives thirsting for blood. Go and stand amidst their scowling hearts, my child, and let your gentle eyes fall upon them like the forgiving peace of the evening over the strife of the day. Let them see your face, my child, and thus know the meaning of all things, let them love you and love each other. Come and take your seat in the bosom of the limitless, my child. At sunrise open and raise your heart like a blossoming flower, and at sunset bend your head and in silence complete the worship of the day."
Author: Rabindranath Tagore

Author: Ramana Maharshi

Today's Quote

Out of a human population on earth of four and a half billion, perhaps twenty people can write a book in a year. Some people lift cars, too. Some people enter week-long sled-dog races, go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, fly planes through the Arc de Triomphe. Some people feel no pain in childbirth. Some people eat cars. There is no call to take human extremes as norms."
