De todas maneras, disponer de ambas cosas no hace ningún daño. Sobre todo, la cantidad de tiempo es limitada. El reloj no para de marcar la hora. Tictac. El tiempo pasa enseguida. La oportunidad se va perdiendo. Y si usted tiene dinero, puede comprar el tiempo. Puestos a comprar, hasta puede comprarse la libertad. El tiempo y la libertad son lo más importante que el dinero puede comprar para el ser humano."
Author: Haruki Murakami
20. "Hay mil podando las ramas del mal por uno que golpea en la raíz, y puede que aquel que otorgue la mayor cantidad de tiempo y de dinero a los necesitados sea el que más haga con su modo de vida para producir la miseria que trata de aliviar en vano. Sería como el piadoso dueño de esclavos que dedica las ganancias del décimo esclavo a comprar la libertad de un domingo para los demás. Algunos muestran su amabilidad con los pobres empleándolos en sus cocinas. ¿No serían más amables si se emplearan allí a sí mismos? Os jactáis de gastar la décima parte de vuestros ingresos en la caridad; tal vez deberíais gastar las nueve décimas partes y acabar con ella. La sociedad recupera entonces sólo una décima parte de la propiedad. ¿Se debe a la generosidad del que la posee o a la negligencia de los oficiales de justicia?"
Author: Henry David Thoreau

Author: Holly Black

Author: Holly Schindler
23. "Los mortales siempre quieren algo más. Desean dinero, pero en realidad buscan una vida sin preocupaciones. Poder, cuando lo que quieren de verdad es control. O belleza, cuando quieren amor. A veces lo saben y a veces no."

24. "Sé que estamos jodidos, ¿De acuerdo? Soy impulsivo y tengo mal genio, y te metiste bajo mi piel como nadie más. Actúas como si me odiaras un minuto, y luego como si me necesitaras al siguiente. Nunca acierto en nada, y no te merezco... pero estoy malditamente enamorado de ti, Abby. Te amo más de lo que he querido a nadie ni nada, nunca. Cuando estás cerca, no necesito alcohol, ni dinero, ni lucha, o algo de una sola noche... todo lo que necesito es a ti. Tú eres en todo lo que pienso. Eres todo lo que soñé. Eres todo lo que quiero." - Travis"
Author: Jamie McGuire

26. "It was not that long ago that dinner had meant swallowing down whatever you could get your filthy hands on. . . Dinner meant something different here. It meant half a day's work for two women. It mean polished crystal and silver, it meant a change of dress for the diners and a special suit of clothes for the servants to serve it up in. Here, dinner meant delay; it meant extending, with all the complexities of preparation and all those rituals of civility, the gap between hunger and its satisfaction. Here, now, it seemed that hunger itself might be relished, because its cessation was guaranteed; there always was - there always would be - meat and vegetables and dumplings and cakes and pies and plates and forks and pleases and thank yous, and endless plates of bread and butter."
Author: Jo Baker

Supped at Major Gardiners, and engag'd to keep School at Bristol, provided Worcester People, at their ensuing March meeting, should change this into a moving School, not otherwise. Major Greene this Evening fell into some conversation with me about the Divinity and Satisfaction of Jesus Christ. All the Argument he advanced was, 'that a mere creature, or finite Being, could not make Satisfaction to infinite justice, for any Crimes,' and that 'these things are very mysterious.'(Thus mystery is made a convenient Cover for absurdity.)[Diary entry, February 13 1756]"
Author: John Adams

33. "Are you kidding me?You come here and use your stupid faerie mojo and then you back away from me? Is there anything in your golden head that makes sense?

34. "Por más que las personas digan cosas bonitas, la mayoría vive pensando en si mismo, no? Para ellas, lo importante es comer cosas ricas; poderse comprar lo que se quiere, pero cuando una persona pasa a querer a alguien, ese alguien pasa a ser más importante que todo.Si tuviéramos poca comida, yo te daría mi parte. Si tuviéramos poco dinero, yo dejaría de comprarme lo que quiero para comprarte lo que quieres tu.

Yo no creo."

Author: Lolo Mayaya

Like you hadn't just broken my heart."

There hadn't been any traffic on the road for over an hour, though, which was really the most important thing. We hadn't been followed. Sydney drove us to a building with a sign that read MOTEL. Apparently, this town liked to stick to the basics when it came to names. I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually just called TOWN."
