"Prof. Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas, seorang pemikir yang dikenal cukup baik oleh dunia pemikiran Barat maupun Islam, memandang problem terberat yang dihadapi manusia dewasa ini adalah hegemoni dan dominasi keilmuan sekular Barat yang mengarah pada kehancuran umat manusia.

2. "Saya menyangsikan kalimat plesetan 'takkan lari jodoh dikejar'. Gunung memang tidak akan lari. Tapi jodoh? Dia punya kaki dan keinginan, dia bisa berlari-lari kesana-kemari. kemana dia suka. Bahkan dia bisa hilang, seperti lenyap ditelan bumi. Atau dia jatuh ketangan orang lain"."
Author: Ahmad Fuadi

4. "Are you waiting for someone to come and get you?" I whisper. I sound small and thirsty. He doesn't answer. Instead, he bends his head and kisses me, just once, then let's me go. When Connor would kiss Angelie in the halls last spring, he did it like he was trying to suck the chocolate off the outside of a Klondike bar. It could last for hours. This is more like seeing a star fall - thrilling and soundless and then over."
Author: Brenna Yovanoff
5. "RüzgarSimdi bir rüzgar geçti buradanKostum ama yetisemedim,Nerelerde gezmis tozmusÖgrenemedim.Besbelli denizden çikipKiyilar boyunca gitmistir,Tuz kokusu, katran kokusu, ter kokusuYüregini allak bullak etmistir.Sonra baslamis tirmanmaya daglara dogruBulutlari koyun gibi gütmüstür,Oksayip otlari yaylalardaBüyütmüstür.Köylere de ugradiysa egerIslak, karanlik odalarda besik sallanmistir,Günes altinda çalisanlaraImdat eylemistir.Sonra baslayip alçalmaya ovalara dogru,Hashas tarlalarinda eflatun, pembe, beyaz,Kiraçlarda mavi dikenler..Toz toprak gözlerine gitmistir.Sehirlere ugramis ki yanimdan geçti,Hashas çiçegine benzer kizlar görmüstür,Bir gülüs, bir tel saç, allik pudraAlip gitmistir.Simdi bir rüzgar geçti buradanKostum ama yetisemedim,Soraydim söylerdi herhaldeSoramadim."

Author: Carole Wilkinson
7. "It is noteworthy that few works of fiction make marriage their central concern. As Northrup Frye puts it, with his accustomed clarity: 'The heroine who becomes a bride, and eventually, one assumes, a mother, on the last page of a romance, has accommodated herself to the cyclical movement: by her marriage...she completes the cycle and passes out of the story. We are usually given to understand that a happy and well-adjusted sexual life does not concern us as readers.' Fiction has largely rejected marriage as a subject, except in those instances where it is presented as a history of betrayal -- at worst an Updike hell, at best when Auden speaks of it as a game calling for 'patience, foresight, maneuver, like war, like marriage.' Marriage is very different than fiction presents it as being. We rarely examine its unromantic aspects."
Author: Carolyn G. Heilbrun
8. "It is easy to compress the passions by violence. Philosophy suppresses them with a stroke of the pen. Locks and the sword come to the aid of sweet morality, but nature appeals these judgments; she regains her rights in secret. Passion stifled at one point reappears at another like water held back by a dike; it is driven inward like the fluid of an ulcer closed to soon."
Author: Charles Fourier
9. "Setiap bangun tidur pagi, berterima kasihlah kepada Tuhan, karena anda memiliki sesuatu yang harus dikerjakan, entah pekerjaan itu anda sukai mau pun tidak.Terpaksa bekerja dan bekerja sebaik-baiknya akan memelihara kesederhanaan anda, kemampuan mengendalikan diri, kerajinan, kegigihan, kepuasan, dan seratus kebajikan lain yang tidak dikenal oleh orang-orang yang berleha-leha."
Author: Charles Kingsley
10. "Foreign behavior? What the fuck are you talking about? Foreign behavior? Have you read Things Fall Apart? Ifemulu asked, wishing she had not told Ranyinudo about Dike. She was angrier with Ranyinudo than she had ever been, yet she knew that Ranyinudo meant well, and had said what many other Nigerians would say, which was why she had not told anyone else about Dike's suicide attempt since she came back."
Author: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
11. "Workshop Hermeticism, fiction for which the highest praise involves the words 'competent,' 'finished,' 'problem-free,' fiction over which Writing-Program pre- and proscriptions loom with the enclosing force of horizons: no character without Freudian trauma in accessible past, without near-diagnostic physical description; no image undissolved into regulation Updikean metaphor; no overture without a dramatized scene to 'show' what's 'told'; no denouement prior to an epiphany whose approach can be charted by and Freitag on any Macintosh."
Author: David Foster Wallace
12. "Momentum tidak dapat dikejar. Momentum hadir. Begitu ia lewat ia tidak lagi sebuah momentum. Ia menjadi kenangan. Dan kenangan tidak akan membawa Anda kemana-mana. Kenangan adalah batu-batu di antara aliran sungai. Anda seharusnya menjadi arus bukan batu."
Author: Dee
13. "I just love kids. As a kid, I grew up in a poor country with a poor family that had nothing. I loved anyone who could come into my life, in from the outside, and give me advice that could help me succeed. I believe that there are a lot of people who came into my life that made me Dikembe Mutombo."
Author: Dikembe Mutombo
14. "I was not very strong growing up, and my uncle used to look at me, like, 'This kid is not growing up, he is growing tall but he can be broken like a banana.' The banana in Congo is called 'Dikembe.' So my uncle start calling me, 'Dikembe, Dikembe, look at you Dikembe, you cannot even stand up.' It took a long time for me to walk."
Author: Dikembe Mutombo
15. "Rasa cemburu adalah obat yang lebih adiktif dan memuaskan daripada apa pun yang dikenal oleh umat manusia. Efeknya instan, menyambar kita lebih cepat daripada kilat, dan membuat kita mabuk dalam sekejap.Begitu kita berada di sana, teler berkat hal yang disebut kecemburuan ini, kita melihat kesempatan untuk curiga di mana-mana."
Author: Dorothy Koomson
16. "Meski bisa mengelak dari hukuman, orang yang melarikan diri tidak mungkin bisa hidup tenang, karena mereka selalu dikejar ketakutan akan masa yang akan datang mau pun masa kini."
Author: Epicurus
17. "Dick tried to rest - the struggle would come presently at home and he might have to sit a long time, restating the universe for her. A "schizophrêne" is well named as a split personality - Nicole was alternately a person to whom nothing need be explained and one to whom nothing could be explained. It was necessary to treat her with active and affirmative insistence, keeping the road to reality always open, making the road to escape harder going. But the brilliance, the versatility of madness is akin to the resourcefulness of water seeping through, over and around a dike. It requires the united front of many people to work against it."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
18. "Kekeliruan yang berlaku dulu usah dikesali lagi... mengingatinya hanya sekadar menabah rasa bersalah - Cinta Hari-hari Rusuhan"
Author: Faisal Tehrani
19. "Setelah begitu banyak kebaikan yang Allah curahkan kepada manusia, sedikit sahaja yang mahu berterima kasih kepada-Nya.Maka, bagaimana pula kita, hamba Allah yang kerdil ini, boleh tidak lena malam hanya kerana jasanya tidak dikenang seseorang.JANGAN KECIL HATI. Kita kan hamba!(Di Hamparan Shamrock, Kuseru NamaMu: 341)"
Author: Hasrizal Abdul Jamil
20. "A valise without straps. A hole without a key. She had a German mouth, French ears, Russian ass. Cunt international. When the flag waved it was red all the way back to the throat. You entered on the Boulevard Jules-Ferry and came out at the Porte de la Villette. You droppedyour sweetbreads into the tumbrils – red tumbrils with two wheels, naturally. At the confluence of the Ourcq and Marne, where the water sluices through the dikes and lies like glass under thebridges."
Author: Henry Miller
21. "But in a society with no central motivation, so far adrift and puzzled with itself that its President feels called upon to appoint a Committee on National Goals, a sense of alienation is likely to be very popular--especially among people young enough to shrug off the guilt they're suppose to feel for deviating from a goal or purpose they never understood in the first place. Let the old people wallow in the shame of having failed. The laws they made to preserve a myth are no longer pertinent; the so called American Way begins to seem like a dike made of cheap cement, with many more leaks than the law has fingers to plug. America has been breeding mass anomie since the end of World War II. It is not a political thing, but the sense of new realities, or urgency, anger and sometimes desperation in a society where even the highest authorities seem to be grasping at straws."
Author: Hunter S. Thompson
22. "Sesuatu untuk dikerjakan, seseorang untuk dicintai, sesuatu untuk diharapkan.Itulah kebahagiaan."
Author: Immanuel Kant
23. "When I was a boy, playing at the beach, I remember a game I loved, which was an omen of my future life. I would dig a channel with high sides in the sand for the sea to fill. But when the water flooded the path I created for it with such violence that it destroyed everything in its way: my castles made of pebbles, my dikes of sand. It swept away everything, destroying it all, then disappeared, leaving me with a heavy heart, yet not daring to ask for pity, since the sea had only responded to my call. It's the same with love. You call out for it, you plan its course. The wave crashes into your heart, but it's so different from how you imagined it, so bitter and icy."
Author: Irène Némirovsky
24. "Ada saatnya kita harus merasakan sakit karena dikecewakan. Tapi percayalah, akan datang bahagia berlipat sebagai gantinya."
Author: Irin Sintriana
25. "Aku mencintainya tanpa diketahui.Aku mencintainya dalam diam.Aku mencintainya dalam satu sudut pandang.Aku mencintainya di satu sisi.Ya, aku percaya.Jika takdirku adalah dirimu,kau akan memilihku. Nanti."
Author: Jee
26. "Bakat dikembangkan dalam ketenangan,Watak dibentuk dalam kegalauan dunia."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
27. "Some miners' wives take in washing and make more money than their husbands do. In every gold rush from this one to the Klondike, the suppliers and service industries will gather up the dust while ninety-nine per cent of the miners go home with empty pokes."
Author: John McPhee
28. "The Sometime Sportsman Greets the Springby John UpdikeWhen winter's glaze is lifted from the greens,And cups are freshly cut, and birdies sing,Triumphantly the stifled golfer preensIn cleats and slacks once more, and checks his swing.This year, he vows, his head will steady be,His weight-shift smooth, his grip and stance ideal;And so they are, until upon the teeBefall the old contortions of the real.So, too, the tennis-player, torpid fromHibernal months of television sports,Perfects his serve and feels his knees becomeSheer muscle in their unaccustomed shorts.Right arm relaxed, the left controls the toss,Which shall be high, so that the racket faceShall at a certain angle sweep acrossThe floated sphere with gutty strings—an ace!The mind's eye sees it all until uponThe courts of life the faulty way we playedIn other summers rolls back with the sun.Hope springs eternally, but spring hopes fade."
Author: John Updike
29. "John Updike, in that book you gave me, he said the dead make space. Do you know what I think? Updike doesn't know dick about what it's like to be a homicide cop in Baltimore."
Author: Laura Lippman
30. "Sex is hard to write about because you lose the universal and succumb to the particular. We all have our different favorites. Good sex is impossible to write about. Lawrence and Updike have given it their all, and the result is still uneasy and unsure. It may be that good sex is something fiction just can't do--like dreams. Most of the sex in my novels is absolutely disastrous. Sex can be funny, but not very sexy."
Author: Martin Amis
31. "Wajah alam merupakan sesuatu yang tidak dapat dikenal"
Author: Masanobu Fukuoka
32. "Sesungguhnya;Cinta itu amat keparatDitunggu rasanya penatDikejar pastinya tak larat."
Author: Mosyuki Borhan
33. "Why there isn't any drama in my lifeSo I'll crawl on the cottonfield with a fifeWhy to have a dream in vain my life begsAm a house gecko, I eat flies and lay eggsMy death surely doesn't yield a headline and allI'll break law by pissing on a castle's wallFor my death there wouldn't be a weeping meniFrom the name of Lady Canning there's ledikeniOne foot on heaven and one foot on hell, hangingOne cannon and two cannonballs dangling."
Author: Nabarun Bhattacharya
34. "Dalam mengarang saya tidak pernah tergesa-gesa. Saya anggap pekerjaan mengarang adalah tugas yang santai, yang harus dikerjakan dengan senang hati. Kalau saya menulisnya dengan terburu-buru, berarti dengan hati yang kesal, maka dapat dipastikan bahwa si pembaca pun akan merasakannya."
Author: Nh. Dini
35. "To defeat Fortune, men must anticipate such evils before they arise, and take prudent steps to avoid them. When the waters have already risen, it is too late to build dikes and embankments."
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli
36. "When a printed book—whether a recently published scholarly history or a two-hundred-year-old Victorian novel—is transferred to an electronic device connected to the Internet, it turns into something very like a Web site. Its words become wrapped in all the distractions of the networked computer. Its links and other digital enhancements propel the reader hither and yon. It loses what the late John Updike called its "edges" and dissolves into the vast, rolling waters of the Net. The linearity of the printed book is shattered, along with the calm attentiveness it encourages in the reader."
Author: Nicholas Carr
37. "Kenangan perlu ada dalam hidup untuk dikenang, ditertawakan dan menjadi warisan ingatan kepada anak keturunam"
Author: Norhayati Berahim
38. "Jangan sesekali bergantung kepada sesama makhluk dalam soal rezeki. Bergantunglah kepada Allah. Bertawakallah kepada Allah dan berikhtiarlah dengan keupayaan sendiri. Jika tidak, kita akan dikecewakan."
Author: Pahrol Mohamad Juoi
39. "Gelmesinden baska sifam yoktur. Gelmezse, yeryüzünde hiç bir güzel canli ve enteresan seyin beni oyalayamayacagini düsünmenin verdigi bir ümitsizlik desheti içinde yerime oturur, gözlerimi buzlu camlarin yari karanlik zemininde oynayan kaderin pariltilarina dikerim."
Author: Peyami Safa
40. "Jalan setapak memasuki hutan gempol itu sedikit berair. Anggrek bulan dengan bunga birunya yang sedang mekar menggelantung dibuai angin pagi. Juga jenis anggrek bulan lain dan anggrek merpati ramai bergelantungan pada pohon gempol. Malah serumpun anggrek harimau tenang-tenang mendekam diketinggian cabang. Bunganya yang kuning berbelang coklat serasa hendak meloncat untuk menerkam. Sayang sekali keindahan alam itu masih belum dapat dinikmati orang buangan ini. Juga tidak oleh penghuni kampung-kampung di gunung. Mereka baru bisa bicara tentang lapar."
Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer

Author: SBYudhoyono
44. "I had worked for a newspaper of sorts, word got around, and I became editor of our local school newspaper, The Drum. I don't recall being given any choice in this matter; I think I was simply appointed. My second-in-command, Danny Emond, had even less interest in the paper than I did. Danny just liked the idea that Room 4, where we did our work, was near the girls' bathroom. "Someday I'll just go crazy and hack my way in there, Steve," he told me on more than one occasion. "Hack, hack, hack." Once he added, perhaps in an effort to justify himself: "The prettiest girls in school pull up their skirts in there." This struck me as so fundamentally stupid it might actually be wise, like a Zen Koan or an early story by John Updike."
Author: Stephen King

Author: Turgut Uyar
47. "Saifuddin al-Amidi (1233 Masihi) dalam kitabnya yang terkenal Abkar al-Afkar telah mengumpul dan menganalisis semua takrif ilmu yang terdapat pada zamannya secara terperinci. Beliau mendapati bahawa takrif yang dikemukakan oleh Fakhruddin al-Razi (meninggal dunia 1209 Masihi) adalah yang terbaik. Takrif itu, yang diketengahkan semula dan diperbaiki lagi oleh Profesor Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas ialah seperti yang berikut:Merujuk kepada Allah sebagai asal segala ilmu, ia (ilmu) adalah ketibaan makna sesuatu ke dalam diri seseorang. Apabila merujuk kepada diri sebagai pentafsir, ilmu adalah ketibaan diri seseorang kepada makna tentang sesuatu."
Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud

Author: Yoshichi Shimada
50. "The monstropolous beast had left his bed. The two hundred miles a hour wind had loosed his chains. He seized hold of his dikes and ran forward until he met the quarters; uprooted them like grass and rushed on after his supposed-to-be conquerors, rolling the dikes, rolling the houses, rolling the people in the houses along with other timbers. The sea was walking the earth with a heavy heel."
Author: Zora Neale Hurston
