Veo a aquellos que nos miran estúpidamente, también veo a los que creen mirarnos inteligentemente, a los que dicen: "Miro para ver hasta dónde pueden llegar los que se rebajan", y que, al hacerlo, se rebajan todavía más que ellos. ¡El ojo estaba dentro de la televisión y les miraba! ¡Van a verme morir sabiendo que les estoy viendo!"
Author: Amélie Nothomb
5. "Nadya Zelenin and her mother had returned from a performance of Eugene Onegin at the theatre. Going into her room, the girl swiftly threw off her dress and let her hair down. Then she quickly sat at the table in her petticoat and white bodice to write a letter like Tatyana's.'I love you,' she wrote, 'but you don't love me, you don't love me!'Having written this, she laughed.She was only sixteen and had never loved anyone yet. She knew that Gorny (an army officer) and Gruzdyov (a student) were both in love with her, but now, after the opera, she wanted to doubt their love. To be unloved and miserable: what an attractive idea! There was something beautiful, touching and romantic about A loving B when B wasn't interested in A. Onegin was attractive in not loving at all, while Tatyana was enchanting because she loved greatly. Had they loved equally and been happy they might have seemed boring.("After The Theatre")"
Author: Anton Chekhov
6. "De todos los idiomas europeos el que resulta más difícil de hablar bien a mi entender es sin duda el español, tal es su riqueza de palabras, rotaciones lingüísticas y belleza expresiva. Ocurre sin embargo que tan pocas personas conocen lo que dicen, son tan escasas las que manejan por completo el inmenso vocabulario de esta excepcional lengua, tan selectas las que entienden sus innumerables giros y tiempos verbales, que parece simple y sencillo a primera vista."
Author: Antonio Cavanillas De Blas
7. "Savage and furious nations, perpetually at war, adore, under divers names, some God, conformable to their ideas, that is to say, cruel, carnivorous, selfish, blood-thirsty. We find, in all the religions, "a God of armies," a "jealous God," an "avenging God," a "destroying God," a "God," who is pleased with carnage, and whom his worshippers consider it a duty to serve. Lambs, bulls, children, men, and women, are sacrificed to him. Zealous servants of this barbarous God think themselves obliged even to offer up themselves as a sacrifice to him. Madmen may everywhere be seen, who, after meditating upon their terrible God, imagine that to please him they must inflict on themselves, the most exquisite torments. The gloomy ideas formed of the deity, far from consoling them, have every where disquieted their minds, and prejudiced follies destructive to happiness."
Author: Baron D'Holbach
8. "If a guy's got it, let him give it. I'm selling music, not prejudice."
Author: Benny Goodman

Author: Chuck Palahniuk
10. "A near View of Death would soon reconcile Men of good Priciples one to another, and that it is chiefly owing to our easy Scituation in Life, and our putting these Things far from us, that our Breaches are formented, ill Blood continued, Prejudices, Breach of Charity and of Christian Union so much kept and so far carry'd on among us, as it is: Another Plague Year would reconcile all these Differences, a close conversing with Death, or the Diseases that threaten Death, would scum off the Gall from our Tempers, remove the Animosities among us, and bring us to see with differing Eyes, than those which we look'd on Things with before"
Author: Daniel Defoe
11. "Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices - just recognize them."
Author: Edward R. Murrow
12. "There are no solutions, only cowardice masquerading as such."
Author: Emil Cioran
13. "The padres set great store by addressing prayer to personal gods: 'Genuine prayer exists only in religions in which there is a God as a person and a shape and endowed with a will.'That was stated by a famous Protestant. The anarch does not want to have anything to do with that conception. As for the One God: while he may be able to shape persons, he is not a person himself, and the he is already a patriarchal prejudice.A neuter One is beyond our grasp, while man converses ten with the Many Gods on equal terms, whether as their inventor or as their discoverer. In any case, it is man who named the gods. This is not to be confused with a high level soliloquy. Divinity must, without a doubt, be inside us and recognized as being inside us; otherwise we would have no concept of gods."
Author: Ernst Jünger
14. "Man has it all in his hands, and it all slips through his fingers from sheer cowardice."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Forse so io stesso quel che desidero? Sono anch'io come sperduto: vorrei soltanto starle accanto, essere nella sua aura, nella sua luce, eternamente, per tutta la vita. Altro non so! Potrei forse allontanarmi da lei?"
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
16. "Indeed when, on somebody returning me the Eurydice, I opened and read some lines, as one commonly reads whether prose or verse, with the eyes, so to say, only, it struck me aghast with a kind of raw nakedness and unmitigated violence I was unprepared for: but take breath and read it with the ears, as I always wish to be read, and my verse becomes all right."
Author: Gerard Manley Hopkins
17. "Decía siempre la mar. Así es como dicen en español cuando la quieren. Aunque hablen mal de ella siempre se refieren a ella como si fuera una mujer."
Author: Hemingway Ernest
18. "...new prejudices will serve as well as old ones to harness the great unthinking masses.For this enlightenment, however, nothing is required but freedom, and indeed the most harmless among all the things to which this term can properly be applied. It is the freedom to make public use of one's reason at every point. But I hear on all sides, 'Do not argue!' The Officer says: 'Do not argue but drill!' The tax collector: 'Do not argue but pay!' The cleric: 'Do not argue but believe!' Only one prince in the world says, 'Argue as much as you will, and about what you will, but obey!' Everywhere there is restriction on freedom."
Author: Immanuel Kant

23. "A Eva y Adán todavía les quedaba la posibilidad de engendrar un hijo para compensar la pérdida del asesinado, pero qué triste la gente sin otra finalidad en la vida que la de hacer hijos sin saber por qué ni para qué. Para continuar la especie, dicen aquellos que creen en un objetivo final, en una razón última, aunque no tengan ni idea de cuáles son y nunca se hayan preguntado en nombre de qué tiene que perpetuarse la especie, como si fuese ella la única y última esperanza del universo."
Author: José Saramago
24. "El niño está hecho de cien. El niño tiene cien lenguajes cien manos cien pensamientos cien modos de pensar de jugar, de hablar. Cien, siempre cien modos de escuchar de maravillarse de amar cien alegrías para cantar y entender cien modos de descubrir de inventar cien modos de soñar. El niño tiene cien lenguajes y cientos más pero le roban noventa y nueve. La escuela y la cultura separan la cabeza del cuerpo. Le dicen al niño: que piense sin manos que trabaje sin cabeza que escuche y no hable que entienda sin alegría que ame y se asombre solo en Pascua y Navidad. Le dicen al niño: que descubra un mundo que ya existe y de cien le quitan noventa y nueve. Le dicen al niño: que el trabajo y el juego la realidad y la fantasía la ciencia y la imaginación el cielo y la tierra la razón y los sueños son cosas que no están unidas. Le dicen, en resumen, que el cien no existe. Pero el niño exclama: ¡Qué va, el cien existe!"
Author: Ken Robinson

Author: Laura Gallego García
28. "And I could test myself - my own courage - with it, too, because when the doors at either end of the secret staircase were closed, it was impenetrably dark. I hid in the staircase, shivering with terror, telling the narrative: The little girl was in a dark, dark place but she was very brave...Sometimes the door at the bottom opened, and a wedge of light sliced up the stairs; a maid, her arms filled with folded laundry, would find me and ask in amazement what I was doing there.And though I answered lightheartedly that I was playing, the truth is that I was not entirely certain what I was doing there, crouched and frightened in the darkness. Only now, sixty years later, do I see that I was arming myself, rehearsing panic, loss, and helplessness; assessing my own cowardice and courage, and and the same time reassuring myself that the door would always open, that the light would always find its way in."
Author: Lois Lowry
29. "SOCRATECome va ad Atene?MENIPPOMolti giovanotti dicono di far filosofia, e a giudicare dai vestiti e dal modo di camminare, si tratterebbe di sommi filosofi!SOCRATEAh, ne ho visti tanti davvero! [...] E di me che pensano?MENIPPOIn questo, Socrate, sei un uomo fortunato. Tutti credono infatti che tu sia un uomo ammirevole, e tu sappia tutto, e per giunta senza sapere nulla! Quest'ultima cosa, però, penso che sia vera.SOCRATEAnch'io glielo dicevo sempre, ma loro credevano che si trattasse di un'ironia! (Dialoghi dei morti, 6, Menippo ed Eaco)"

30. "Democratic forms of government are vulnerable to mass prejudice, the so-called tyranny of the majority."
Author: Maggie Gallagher
31. "We could speak about the meaning of life vis-a-vis non-consequential/deontological theories, apodictic transformation schemata, the incoherence of exemplification, metaphysical realism, Cartesian interactive dualism, revised non reductive dualism, postmodernist grammatology and dicey dichotomies. But we would still be left with Nietzsche's preposterous mustache which instills great anguish and skepticism in the brain, which leads (as it did in his case) to utter madness. I suggest we go to Paris instead."
Author: Maira Kalman
32. "Me habían regalado un libro de Paulo Coelho... "Cuando quieres algo, todo el universo se conjura para que realices tu deseo", dice. Creo que Paulo Coelho no se ha topado nunca con los talibanes y nuestros políticos inútiles."

Author: Melville, Herman
36. "I loved 'Dungeons & Dragons.' Actually, not so much the actual playing as the creation of characters and the opportunity to roll twenty-sided dice. I loved those pouches of dice Dungeon Masters would trundle around, loved choosing what I was going to be: warrior, wizard, dwarf, thief."
Author: Michael Ian Black
37. "Se dice que los grandes acontecimientos del mundo tienen lugar en el cerebro. Es en el cerebro, y sólo en el cerebro, donde los grandes pecados del mundo tienen lugar también."
Author: Oscar Wilde
38. "The very violence of a revolution may make the public grand and splendid for a moment. It was a fatal day when the public discovered that the pen is mightier than the paving-stone, and can be made as offensive as the brickbat. They at once sought for the journalist, found him, developed him, and made him their industrious and well-paid servant. It is greatly to be regretted, for both their sakes. Behind the barricade there may be much that is noble and heroic. But what is there behind the leading-article but prejudice, stupidity, cant and twaddle?"
Author: Oscar Wilde
39. "Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage."
Author: Plutarch
40. "You can't learn to write in college. It's a very bad place for writers because the teachers always think they know more than you do—and they don't. They have prejudices. They may like Henry James, but what if you don't want to write like Henry James? They may like John Irving, for instance, who's the bore of all time. A lot of the people whose work they've taught in the schools for the last thirty years, I can't understand why people read them and why they are taught. The library, on the other hand, has no biases. The information is all there for you to interpret. You don't have someone telling you what to think. You discover it for yourself."
Author: Ray Bradbury
41. "There is a prejuidice imposed on us by our brief window of consciousness: things that move are alive, things that don't are dead."
Author: Robert Charles Wilson

Author: Robert Jordan
43. "I've been doing Pride and Prejudice all summer, so suddenly the chance to be holed up with a bunch of marines is quite attractive, and probably a necessary dose of male energy."
Author: Rosamund Pike
44. "I'm aware of what you've done for me, and I'm not ungrateful. I appreciate that you actually showed yourself to be greater than your prejudices and have given me a chance here. But I don't want you for my lover, and you're not my father."
Author: Stieg Larsson
45. "It doesn't prove anything except that you're bullying us. Which, as I recall, is a sign of cowardice."
Author: Veronica Roth
46. "You who are Prejudice, Abuse, Ignominy, Oppression, Iniquity, Despotism, Injustice, Fanaticism, beware of the wide-eyed urchin. He will grow up."
Author: Victor Hugo
47. "Disminuir el número de los tenebrosos, aumentar el de los luminosos; tal es el grande objeto. Por esto gritamos: ¡Enseñanza! ¡Ciencia! Aprender a leer es encender el fuego; toda sílaba deletreada brilla.Pero el que dice luz, no dice necesariamente goces. También se padece en la luz, porque el exceso quema. La llama es enemiga de las alas. Arder sin cesar de volar es el prodigio del genio."
Author: Victor Hugo
48. "Fra cento anni, d'altronde, pensavo giunta sulla soglia di casa, le donne non saranno più il sesso protetto. Logicamente condivideranno tutte le attività e tutti gli sforzi che una volta erano stati loro negati. La balia scaricherà il carbone. La fruttivendola guiderà la macchina. Ogni presupposto basato sui fatti osservati quando le donne erano il sesso protetto sarà scomparso; ad esempio (in strada stava passando un plotone di soldati) l'idea che le donne, i preti e i giardinieri vivano più a lungo. Togliete questa protezione, esponete le donne agli stessi sforzi e alle stesse attività, lasciatele diventare soldati, marinari, camionisti e scaricatori di porto, e vi accorgerete che le donne muoiono assai più giovani e assai più presto degli uomini; cosicché si dirà: "Oggi ho visto una donna", come si diceva "Oggi ho visto un aereo". Può accadere qualunque cosa quando la femminilità cesserà di essere un'occupazione protetta, pensavo, aprendo la porta."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "The critical habit of thought, if usual in society, will pervade all its mores, because it is a way of taking up the problems of life. Men educated in it cannot be stampeded by stump orators ... They are slow to believe. They can hold things as possible or probable in all degrees, without certainty and without pain. They can wait for evidence and weigh evidence, uninfluenced by the emphasis or confidence with which assertions are made on one side or the other. They can resist appeals to their dearest prejudices and all kinds of cajolery. Education in the critical faculty is the only education of which it can be truly said that it makes good citizens."
Author: William Graham Sumner
50. "Prejudice is the child of ignorance."
Author: William Hazlitt

Today's Quote

God has no needs. Human love, as Plato teaches us, is the child of Poverty – of want or lack; it is caused by a real or supposed goal in its beloved which the lover needs and desires. But God's love, far from being caused by goodness in the object, causes all the goodness which the object has, loving it first into existence, and then into real, though derivative, lovability. God is Goodness. He can give good, but cannot need or get it. In that sense , His love is, as it were, bottomlessly selfless by very definition; it has everything to give, and nothing to receive."
Author: C.S. Lewis
