1. "To oppose knowledge is ignorant, and he who detests knowledge and science is not a man, but rather an animal without intelligence. For knowledge is light, life, felicity, perfection, beauty and the means of approaching the Threshold of Unity. It is the honor and glory of the world of humanity, and the greatest bounty of God. Knowledge is identical with guidance, and ignorance is real error"
Author: Abdu'l Bahá
2. "Unul dintre dezastele nea?teptate ale epocii moderne este acela ca accesul incomparabil la informa?ie a venit cu pre?ul incapacita?ii noastre de a ne concentra cu adevarat asupra vreunui lucru. Gândirea profunda, introspectiva, care a generat multe dintre cele mai importante realizari ale omenirii este ?inta unui atac fara precedent. Întotdeauna avem prin preajma un aparat care ne garanteaza un refugiu fascinant ?i lasciv din fa?a realita?ii. Sentimentele ?i gândurile pe care am omis sa le traim în timp ce ne uitam la ecranele noastre î?i gasesc debu?eul în tresariri involuntare ?i în capacitatea noastra tot mai scazuta de a adormi când trebuie."
Author: Alain De Botton

Author: Andrew Card

Author: Bertrand Russell
8. "Not every President is a great speaker. Not every President is a great thinker. But in the modern era, every single President is a master of one thing: eye contact."

Author: Charlotte Stein
10. "Our students wanted to know everything: but only the newest theory seemed to them worth bothering with. Knowing nothing of the intellectual achievements of the past, they kept fresh and intact their enthusiasm for 'the latest thing'.

Author: Claude Lévi Strauss
11. "Apart from the scenic majesty of the mountainous countryside, unspoiled by modern, conveniences, there is also the small but vibrant capital city of Quetchyl (pronounced "Clutch"), with its many squares and plazas, each with its magnificent statue of President Malagua, sometimes astride a horse and sometimes not astride a horse."
Author: Donald E. Westlake

Author: Gail Carriger

22. "Readers will recall that the little evidence collected seemed to point to the strange and confusing figure of an unidentified Air Force pilot whose body was washed ashore on a beach near Dieppe three months later. Other traces of his ‘mortal remains' were found in a number of unexpected places: in a footnote to a paper on some unusual aspects of schizophrenia published thirty years earlier in a since defunct psychiatric journal; in the pilot for an unpurchased TV thriller, ‘Lieutenant 70'; and on the record labels of a pop singer known as The Him — to instance only a few. Whether in fact this man was a returning astronaut suffering from amnesia, the figment of an ill-organized advertising campaign, or, as some have suggested, the second coming of Christ, is anyone's guess."
Author: J.G. Ballard
23. "You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.-Mr. Darcy"

24. "The pause was to Elizabeth's feelings dreadful. At length, with a voice of forced calmness, he said: "And this is all the reply which I am to have the honour of expecting! I might, perhaps, wish to be informed why, with so little endeavour at civility, I am thus rejected. But it is of small importance.""I might as well inquire," replied she, "why with so evident a desire of offending and insulting me, you chose to tell me that you liked me against your will, against your reason, and even against your character? Was not this some excuse for incivility, if I was uncivil? But I have other provocations. You know I have. Had not my feelings decided against you— had they been indifferent, or had they even been favourable, do you think that any consideration would tempt me to accept the man who has been the means of ruining, perhaps for ever, the happiness of a most beloved sister?"
Author: Jane Austen
25. "I believe that Bill Clinton will be remembered as one of our nation's great Presidents, and Senator Clinton as one of our nation's great public servants."
Author: Joe Andrew
26. "The president is selling the country down the river with the help of the Supreme Court. Agree with us or you are a marked traitor. You know the sort of thing, all that tiresome pea-brained nonsense that attracts those people who are so dim-witted that the only way they can understand the world is to believe that it is all some kind of conspiracy."
Author: John D. MacDonald
27. "It's taken a lot of presidents to get us where we are today, a lot of deployments, a lot of wars, a lot engagements. You add them all up."
Author: Jon Huntsman Jr.
28. "It's actually really great to be a student and an actor, because I get to do this job that I love, then just when I think my head might explode, I get to go to school where they don't really care about what magazine cover I'm on."
Author: Julia Stiles
29. "I had no work after 'Gangster' for two years, and my sister Rangoli met with an accident that destroyed her looks. My struggle with my parents combined with the industry not accepting me made me feel alienated."
Author: Kangna Ranaut
30. "That night I followed him whenever he let me. I had to. Followed him into strange, complicated actions, very far, bad and good actions. But I was never allowed into his world. What was I to him? A fantasy. I gave him another identity. Whenever I lay next to him in a bed and it was night, I was too excited to fall asleep, too unwilling to lose a chance that I might be allowed to enter his life. Since he wanted fantasy, what I wanted didn't matter. I asked myself if there was any chance he would change. No. Change for him was fantastical. Yet I was, and still am, a victim of his charity."
Author: Kathy Acker
31. "But what is the sense in forever speculating what might have happened had such and such a moment turned out differently? One could presumably drive oneself to distraction in this way. In any case, while it is all very well to talk of 'turning points', one can surely only recognize such moments in retrospect. Naturally, when one looks back to such instances today, they may indeed take the appearance of being crucial, precious moments in one's life; but of course, at the time, this was not the impression one had. Rather, it was as though one had available a never-ending number of days, months, years in which to sort out the vagaries of one's relationship with Miss Kenton; an infinite number of further opportunities in which to remedy the effect of this or that misunderstanding. There was surely nothing to indicate at the time that such evidently small incidents would render whole dreams forever irredeemable."
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
32. "Feminism, in its fullest meaning, enjoins the human race to establish zones of liberation, and literally to reshape the territorial definition of our patriarchal world, along with the social identities and injustices that those boundaries have defined for all of us."
Author: Leslie Weisman
33. "So be it. God created profoundly fallible creatures on this earth, and human history is mostly the story of error and accident."
Author: Michael Ledeen
34. "To je ona ljudska sklonost, ispunjena olovnim samosažaljenjem, da se svaka stvar, svaki vedar i svijetao životni trenutak, zagorca uvjerenjem kako ti netko cini nepravdu, kako nisi nagraden po svojim zaslugama i kako, sve u svemu, jadnijega i nesretnijeg od sebe okolo i ne vidiš. Tako se kvari vlastiti život, zamara se i ojaduje bližnje; tako se ostaje sam, jer je s ogorcenima teško živjeti. To ja o sebi znam, i to je takoder moj identitet."
Author: Miljenko Jergović
35. "No one else can want for me. No one can substitute his act of will for mine. It does sometimes happen that someone very much wants me to want what he wants. This is the moment when the impassable frontier between him and me, which is drawn by free will, becomes most obvious. I may not want that which he wants me to want - and in this precisely I am incommunicabilis. I am, and I must be, independent in my actions. All human relationships are posited on this fact."
Author: Pope John Paul II
36. "He who knows not and knows not he knows not is a fool - shun him. He who knows not and knows he knows not is a student - teach him. He who knows and knows not he knows is asleep - wake him. He who knows and knows he knows is wise - follow him."
Author: Proverb

Author: Richard Cecil
38. "They're around back," she calls down when Julie and I get out. "Planning their strategy." "Good for them," I say, confident that no strategy that isn't grounded in chaos theory is likely to work against a man like me."
Author: Richard Russo
39. "Rachel was a girl who depended on small, recurrent rituals - that was one of the things he'd come to know about her, and his very ability to identify so specific a trait made him proud of his own capacity for tenderness."
Author: Richard Yates
40. "Yes, happiness is dependent upon misery. For we all feel a swell of happiness after our circumstances improve from a misery recently suffered."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
41. "She was too dependent on what other people thought of her, and that was her downfall. She cared too much. She was only what other people saw in her—-that is, what she imagined they saw in her."
Author: Steph Bowe
42. "Embracing your true self radiates a natural beauty that cannot be diluted or ignored. Confident, powerful, untamable, badass you!"
Author: Steve Maraboli
43. "The merest accident of microgeography had meant that the first man to hear the voice of Om, and who gave Om his view of humans, was a shepherd and not a goatherd. They have quite different ways of looking at the world, and the whole of history might have been different. For sheep are stupid, and have to be driven. But goats are intelligent, and need to be led."
Author: Terry Pratchett
44. "It's a fine, warm day," Henry replied. "I thought a spot of fishing?""Just the thing!" said Felix. "Will you join us, Lucy?" Lucy felt Kitty and Sophia staring at her. Well-bred ladies, evidently, did not fish. "Oh, no! I assure you, Mr. Crowley-Cumberbatch, I have given up those hoyden pursuits of my youth." She turned to Toby. "I haven't been fishing in ages. I can't remember the last time.""Really, Luce?" Toby sounded incredulous. "Henry—is it true?"Henry sawed away at a slice of ham. "If you count six days as ages, then I suppose it's true. But if you can't remember six days back, Lucy, and you've forgotten Felix's Christian name, I'm concerned for you. Perhaps you've been spending too much time with Aunt Matilda."
Author: Tessa Dare
45. "Hotel WaldhausWe had no luck with the weather and the guests at our table were repellent in every respect. They even ruined Nietzsche for us. Even after they had had a fatal car accident and had been laid out in the church in Sils, we still hated them."
Author: Thomas Bernhard
46. "A confident leader is like a duck. Above the water, he is calm and poised while below the water, he is driven by a flurry of focused activity."
Author: Todd Stocker
47. "Because I am not yet living up to what Jesus expects me to be in those red letters in the Bible, I always define myself as somebody who is saved by God's grace and is on his way to becoming a Christian. (...) Being saved is trusting in what Christ did for us, but being Christian is dependent on the way we respond to what he did for us."
Author: Tony Campolo
48. "I asked my dad once if his high school teachers began treating kids differently during Vietnam, when they knew some of their students would be drafted and sent to war. I was curious because for sure we'd started treating our military kids differently after 9/11. He just shrugged and changed the subject, like he always did. And that was okay with me. He'd go back and change a lot of things if he could; and like everyone else, I'd give anything to go back to the day before 9/11—but all we can do is move forward."
Author: Tucker Elliot
49. "Tonight I've been dealing with a known killer, a male whore, a scam artist and now I've graduated to talking to a mayor. Who's next? The President of the National Association of Rodents?"
Author: V. Alexander
50. "It's easy to minimize a person's hurt without understanding the nature of pain. People often like to categorize how much a person should or shouldn't hurt about things. For example, when someone is upset about something, they say, "At least you're not paralyzed, or starving in Africa." While it's imperative to be grateful for what we have, I think people often mistaken the nature of pain, when they ‘categorize' in this way. The criteria for how much something hurts is not dependent on the thing itself. It is dependent on 2 things:1. The strength of the attachment.2. The level of Divine help.Therefore to minimize the devastation of pain:1. Don't be attached to (dependent on) temporary things.2. Seek Divine help.And don't assign judgement for people's pain."
