"His boast of irreligion stayed on his tongue,for what reasons he couldn't say,any more than he could say why words long unuttered floated unbidden into his mind:La ilaha illa Allah,Muhammad rasulullah.The Kalima,the Word of Purity,the declaration of faith.It almost made him laugh:at the moment he planned to disavow his Muslim identity,his subconscious had unearthed its kernel."

Author: Carl R. Rogers

And if we can identify some of the next generation of literary stars, and cultivate an appreciation for transformative poetry and fiction, then frankly we will sleep better at night."

You do not go to the desert to find identity, but to loses it, to lose your personality, to be anonymous. You make yourself void. You become silence. You become more silent than the silence around you. And then something extraordinary happens: you hear silence speak."
Author: Edmond Jabès
12. "Where you are is who you are. The further inside you the place moves, the more your identity is intertwined with it. Never casual, the choice of place is the choice of something you crave."

13. "Yo, Miguel Littín, hijo de Hernán y Cristina, director de cine y uno de los cinco mil chilenos con prohibición absoluta de regresar, estaba de nuevo en mi país después de doce años de exilio, aunque todavía exiliado dentro de mí mismo: llevaba una identidad falsa, un pasaporte falso, y hasta una esposa falsa. Mi cara y mi apariencia estaban tan cambiadas por la ropa y el maquillaje que ni mi propia madre había de reconocerme a plena luz unos días después."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
14. "A rapidez e a concisão do estilo agradam porque apresentam à alma uma turba de idéias simultâneas, ou cuja sucessão é tão rápida que parecem simultâneas, e fazem a alma ondular numa tal abundância de pensamento, imagens ou sensações espirituais, que ela ou não consegue abraçá-las todas de uma vez nem inteiramente a cada uma, ou não tem tempo de permanecer ociosa e desprovida de sensações. A força do estilo poético, que em grande parte se identifica com a rapidez, não nos deleita senão por esses efeitos, e não consiste senão disso. A excitação das idéias simultâneas pode ser provocada tanto por uma idéia isolada, no sentido próprio ou metafórico, quando por sua colocação na frase, ou pela sua elaboração, bem como pela simples supressão de outras palavras ou frases etc."
Author: Giacomo Leopardi
15. "What white Southerners called "redemption" and others deemed simply the return to power of the Democrats, who sufficiently intimidated, cheated and otherwise discouraged Republicans, including most of the freedmen, that they counted for little in Southern politics. With any Democratic presidential nominee guaranteed the South, any Republican had to perform overwhelmingly in the North."
Author: H.W. Brands
16. "In M---, an important town in northern Italy, the widowed Marquise of O---, a lady of unblemished reputation and the mother of several well-brought-up children, inserted the following announcement in the newspapers: that she had, without knowledge of the cause, come to find herself in a certain situation; that she would like the father of the child she was expecting to disclose his identity to her; that she was resolved, out of consideration to her family, to marry him."
Author: Heinrich Von Kleist
17. "Solitude is the furnace of transformation. Without solitude we remain victims of our society and continue to be entangled in the illusions of the false self. Jesus himself entered into this furnace. There he was tempted with the three compulsions of the world: to be relevant ('turn stones into loaves'), to be spectacular ('throw yourself down'), and to be powerful ('I will give you all these kingdoms'). There he affirmed God as the only source of his identity ('You must worship the Lord your God and serve him alone'). Solitude is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter - the struggle against the compulsions of the false self, and the encounter with the loving God who offers himself as the substance of the new self."
Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen
18. "So ended the formative period in [his] life, the single year that set in motion all the clockwork of his future identity. Thinking back on it, I wonder if it isn't the same for all of us. Adulthood is a glacier encroaching quietly on youth. When it arrives, the stamp of childhood suddenly freezes, capturing us for good in the image of our last act, the pose we struck when the ice of age set in."
Author: Ian Caldwell
19. "The Earth's health is the only standard that is all-encompassing enough to overcome the ethnic, cultural, religious, and national tensions that are rending the world asunder. Only the Earth can become the central axis around which which world peace can be spun, for no religion is more compelling, no single nation larger, and no peoples older than the Earth itself. For that to happen, the collective human consciousness must expand enough so that our highest identification is as Earth-Humans."
Author: Ilchi Lee
20. "Then a skeleton came out from among the trees. It was the skeleton of a Union soldier, though the uniform it wore was so ragged and filthy it was difficult to identify. The sunken cheeks were covered with a thin scattering of fuzz; the hair was lank and matted. It fell over the skeleton's forehead and down into its eyes"
Author: Irene Hunt
21. "Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open."
Author: J.K. Rowling
22. "How can another see into me, into my most secret self, without my being able to see in there myself? And without my being able to see him in me. And if my secret self, that which can be revealed only to the other, to the wholly other, to God if you wish, is a secret that I will never reflect on, that I will never know or experience or possess as my own, then what sense is there in saying that it is my secret, or in saying more generally that a secret belongs, that it is proper to or belongs to some one, or to some other who remains someone. It's perhaps there that we find the secret of secrecy. Namely, that it is not a matter of knowing and that it is there for no one. A secret doesn't belong, it can never be said to be at home or in its place. The question of the self: who am I not in the sense of who am I but rather who is this I that can say who? What is the- I and what becomes of responsibility once the identity of the I trembles in secret?"
Author: Jacques Derrida
23. "It is rare indeed that people give. Most people guard and keep; they suppose that it is they themselves and what they identify with themselves that they are guarding and keeping, whereas what they are actually guarding and keeping is their system of reality and what they assume themselves to be."
Author: James Baldwin
24. "Tokyo - still - offers the most tightly integrated infrastructure, where smooth, technology-driven experiences take place when engaging in everyday actions, such as verifying personal identity, paying for goods, and buying tickets."
Author: Jan Chipchase
25. "Socialism provides safety in numbers. And that's OK, if you don't mind trading your name—your identity and individualism—for a number."
Author: Jarod Kintz
26. "Confidential matters are not dealt with over the telephone, you'd better come here in person. I cannot leave the house, Do you mean you're ill, Yes, I'm ill, the blind man said after a pause. In that case you ought to call a doctor, a real doctor, quipped the functionary, and, delighted with his own wit, he rang off.The man's insolence was like a slap in the face. Only after some minutes had passed, had he regained enough composure to tell his wife how rudely he had been treated. Then, as if he had discovered something that he should have known a long time ago, he murmured sadly, This is the stuff we're made of, half indifference and half malice."
Author: José Saramago
27. "Faced with the choice of enduring a bad toothache or going to the dentist, we generally tried to ride out the bad tooth."
Author: Joseph Barbera
28. "Marks of Identity is, among other things, the expression of the process of alienation in a contemporary intellectual with respect to his own country."
Author: Juan Goytisolo
29. "Olaf hielt sich keineswegs für etwas Besonderes; seine Heavy-Metal-Kutte und die schwarzen T-Shirts mit grellbunten Aufschriften trug er nicht aus einem Grund, den man vor zehn oder zwanzig Jahren in den Kategorien von Identitätsstiftung, Sozialisierung und Jugendkultur erfasst hätte, sondern weil sie zu der Musik gehörten, die er mochte, und weil andere Klamotten ihm nicht gefielen. Aber 'Divergenz' bedeutete 'Auseinanderstreben', und Olaf strebte auseinander.Zwischen anderen Menschen und vor allem innerhalb der so genannten Klassengemeinschaft fühlte er sich wie ein Europäer unter Japanern: Alle sahen gleich aus, betrachteten einen als Gaijin, und zum Schluss erfuhr man, dass sie Koreaner waren. [...] er wusste nicht, worüber er mit ihnen reden sollte, und wunderte sich an manchen Tagen darüber, dass sie überhaupt dieselbe Sprache verwendeten wie er. Seine Unfähigkeit, sich als einer von ihnen zu fühlen, war Divergenz - und in deprimierten Momenten 'Inkompatibilität'."
Author: Juli Zeh
30. "The other that will guide you and itself through this dissolution is a rhythm, text, music, and within language, a text. But what is the connection that holds you both together? Counter-desire, the negative of desire, inside-out desire, capable of questioning (or provoking) its own infinite quest. Romantic, filial, adolescent, exclusive, blind and Oedipal: it is all that, but for others. It returns to where you are, both of you, disappointed, irritated, ambitious, in love with history, critical, on the edge and even in the midst of its own identity crisis; a crisis of enunciation and of the interdependence of its movements, an instinctual drive that descends in waves, tearing apart the symbolic thesis."
Author: Julia Kristeva
31. "Business cards, of course, are not proof of anything. Anyone can go to a print shop and have cards made that say anything they like. The king of Denmark can order business cards that say he sells golf balls. Your dentist can order business cards that say she is your grandmother. In order to escape from the castle of an enemy of mine, I once had cards printed that said I was an admiral in the French navy. Just because something is typed - whether it is typed on a business card or typed in a newspaper or book - this does not mean it is true."
Author: Lemony Snicket
32. "Sadists of Mlle Vinteuil's sort are creatures so purely sentimental, so naturally virtuous, that even sensual pleasure appears to them as something bad, the prerogative of the wicked. And when they allow themselves for a moment to enjoy it they endeavour to impersonate, to identify with, the wicked, and to make their partners do likewise, in order to gain the momentary illusion of having escaped beyond the control of their own gentle and scrupulous natures into the inhuman world of pleasure."
Author: Marcel Proust
33. "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
34. "It is only true love when you have no choice. Love is the most highly valued disease that is identified by the symptom of You-can´t-help-it."
Author: Martin Walser
35. "It's challenging to find an identity as a young person if you don't have the sustenance of love, because you're being shipped around."
Author: Mary J. Blige
36. "He wasn't sure exactly which day, but what's noteworthy about that is that is also before Valerie Plame is first identified in the Robert Novak piece that ran on Monday, July 14."
Author: Michael Isikoff
37. "TEACHERNext. I am afraid --STUDENTI em afred --TEACHERWe are out --STUDENTWee are out --TEACHEROf badgers.STUDENTOf badjurs.TEACHERWould you accept --STUDENTWud you accept --TEACHERA wolverine --STUDENTA wolver-eene --TEACHERIn its place?"
Author: Michael O'Donoghue
38. "Jung was absolutely right about one thing. We are occupied by gods. The mistake is to identify with the god occupying you."
Author: Michael Ondaatje
39. "Men know what they want. Men make concrete plans. Men own alarm clocks. Men sleep on a mattress that isn't on the floor. Men tip generously. Men buy new shampoo instead of adding water to a nearly empty bottle of shampoo. Men go to the dentist. Men make reservations. Men go in for a kiss without giving you some long preamble about how they're thinking of kissing you. Men wear clothes that have never been worn by anyone else before. (Okay, maybe men aren't exactly like this. This is what I've cobbled together from the handful of men I know or know of, ranging from Heathcliff Huxtable to Theodore Roosevelt to my dad.) Men know what they want and they don't let you in on their inner monologue, and that is scary."
Author: Mindy Kaling
40. "I believe _cosmopolitanism_ can be an effective discourse with which to advocate a politics of _transidentity_ of overlapping interests and heterogeneous or hybrid subjects in order to challenge conventional notions of exclusive belonging, identity and citizenship."
Author: Namsoon Kang
41. "By the middle twentieth century, few European nation-states had not at one time or another figured themselves as 'the outpost of Western Christian civilisation': France, imperial Germany, the Habsburg Reich, Poland with its self-image as przedmurze (bastion), even tsarist Russia. Each of these nation-state myths identified "barbarism" as the condition or ethic of their immediate eastward neighbour: for the French, the Germans were barbarous, for the Germans it was the Slavs, for the Poles the Russians, for the Russians the Mongol and Turkic peoples of Central Asia and eventually the Chinese."
Author: Neal Ascherson
42. "I'm not sure if it's possible, but if it is I have a life contract with a rubber glove clause. This means almost any social interaction will involve the placing on, or removal of rubber gloves. That 'snap' means the fun, whatever type it may be, has begun.Doctors? OK, dentists? OK, clerk at Walmart? WHAT!!The Clerk begins to pull on the gloves as other shoppers suddenly find other open lanes.**SNAP**!"
Author: Neil Leckman
43. "I survivedA dreadful accidentIn the car crash of the centuryMy shattered hopesCollapsed on cold cementBut in the back of the ambulanceI'd never felt so content."
Author: Owl City
44. "«È che non voglio andare all'università».«Ma perché?».«Perché penso che sia una perdita di tempo».«Una perdita di tempo! L'università?»«Sì» ho detto. «Almeno per me. Sono sicuro di poter imparare tutto quello che voglio leggendo i libri che mi interessano. Non vedo perché devo passare quattro anni - quattro anni molto costosi - a imparare un mucchio di cose di cui non mi importa niente e che quindi dimenticherò presto, solo per conformarmi a una norma sociale. E poi non sopporto l'idea di passare quattro anni a stretto contatto con gli studenti universitari. Tremo solo all'idea.»"
Author: Peter Cameron
45. "When I arrived in Beirut from Europe, I felt the oppressive, damp heat, saw the unkempt palm trees and smelt the Arabic coffee, the fruit stalls and the over-spiced meat. It was the beginning of the Orient. And when I flew back to Beirut from Iran, I could pick up the British papers, ask for a gin and tonic at any bar, choose a French, Italian, or German restaurant for dinner. It was the beginning of the West. All things to all people, the Lebanese rarely questioned their own identity."
Author: Robert Fisk
46. "Arguments about language are usually arguments about politics, disguised and channeled through one of our most distinctive markers of identity."
Author: Robert Lane Greene
47. "Incidentally, I only have one cavity, and as much as my dentist asks me to, I just can't bring myself to floss."
Author: Stephen Chbosky
48. "Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place."
Author: Susan Sontag
49. "I'm not some sort of tormented soul looking for an identity in the roles I take. I became an actress because I just love dressing up and playing."
Author: Talulah Riley
50. "You never read Spider-Man? Accepting your true identity means understanding that you are a stranger to this world. A freak, ostracized by the very people you want to help."
Author: Ted Dekker

I've wanted to follow my dad into acting for as long as I can remember.
