"Adesso che non potevo più pensare a me come a un'insegnante, una scrittrice, che non potevo più indossare quello che volevo, né camminare per strada al mio passo, gridare se mi andava di farlo o dare una pacca sulla spalla a un collega maschio, adesso che tutto ciò era diventato illegale, mi sentivo evanescente, artificiale, un personaggio immaginario scaturito dalla matita di un disegnatore che una gomma qualsiasi sarebbe bastata a cancellare"

4. "This is a good time to ask apologists for the Islamic regime, who degrades Islam? Who imposes stoning, forced marriage of underage girls and flogging for not wearing the veil? Do such practices represent Iran's ancient history and culture, its ethnic and religious diversity? Its centuries of sensual and subversive poetry?"
Author: Azar Nafisi

"Sadly, at a time when so much sophisticated cultural criticism by hip intellectuals from diverse locations extols a vision of cultural hybridity, border crossing, subjectivity constructed out of plurality, the vast majority of folks in this society still believe in a notion of identity that is rooted in a sense of essential traits and characteristics that are fixed and static."
Author: Bell Hooks

8. "Niente ci fa credere più della paura, della certezza di essere minacciati. Quando ci sentiamo vittime, tutte le nostre azioni e le nostre credenze vengono legittimate, per quanto discutibili siano. I nostri oppositori, o semplicemente i nostri vicini, smettono di essere al nostro livello e diventano nemici. Smettiamo di essere aggressori per diventare difensori. L'invidia, l'avidità o il risentimento che ci muovono vengono santificati, perchè diciamo a noi stessi di agire in nostra difesa. Il male, la minaccia, è sempre nell'altro. Il primo passo per credere con passione è la paura. La paura di perdere la nostra identità, la nostra condizione o le nostre fedi. La paura è la polvere da sparo e l'odio è la miccia. Il dogma, in ultima istanza, è solo un fiammifero acceso."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
9. "Si accostò allo sportello dei biglietti. Per la prima volta, era costretta a rivelare quel che aveva intenzione di fare.- Giardino Zoologico, - disse. Un piccolo biglietto giallo le venne sospinto con indifferenza. - Venti, - disse la donna dietro la lastra di vetro.- E volendo… ritornare? - chiese Rita timidamente.- Allora quaranta, - disse la donna, riprese il biglietto e gliene sospinse un altro dallo sportello.In questo, dunque, si distingueva da tutte le altre del mondo questa città: che per quaranta pfennig teneva in mano due vite diverse."
Author: Christa Wolf
10. "He had divested himself of the little cloaked godlet and his other amulets in a place where they would not be found in his lifetime and he'd taken for talisman the simple human heart within him."
Author: Cormac McCarthy
11. "In another sense he is "being itself," in that he is the inexhaustible source of all reality, the absolute upon which the contingent is always utterly dependent, the unity and simplicity that underlies and sustains the diversity of finite and composite things."
Author: David Bentley Hart
12. "Un corpuscolo trasparentebrillava in me, una scintilla,dorata, luminosa. Lo sapevo:ero io, la mia anima, la mia essenza, il sensodella mia esistenza. È natacon me, pensavo, e con memorirà...e non sapevo che avrei potutosopravviverle a lungo,divenire io stessa un'esiliata, un essere umanoinaridito.E una bugiarda...che candidamentesenza batter ciglio,osa dire:io."
Author: David Grossman
13. "God is triune, and all reality is structured in terms of Him. A brief definition of the Trinity might be this: One God without division in a plurality of Persons, and three Persons without confusion in a unity of essence. God is not 'basically' One, with the individual Persons being derived from the oneness; nor is God 'basically' Three, with the unity of the Persons being secondary. God is One, and God is Three. There are not three Gods; there is only one God. Yet each of the Persons is Himself God — and They are distinct, individual Persons. But there is only one God. "To put it in more philosophical language, God's unity (oneness) and diversity (threeness, individuality) are equally ultimate. God is 'basically' One and 'basically' Three at the same time. And the same goes for all of creation. Both unity and diversity are important – equally important. Neither aspect of reality has priority over the other."
Author: David H. Chilton
14. "I'm going to do whatever interests me. Look, writing 'Rabbit Hole' came out of an interest in diversifying my portfolio, frankly."
Author: David Lindsay Abaire

Author: Debra Anastasia
16. "Sentite questo: Trasmettere un pensiero non significa condividerlo. Perchè un pensiero colleghi due o più soggetti dev'essere decifrato da tutti e questo non è frequente. Collegare è diverso da accettare, la gran parte di ciò che chiamiamo comunicare non è altro che ripetizione e obbedienza. Viviamo di patti referenziali, di pura e semplice meccanica. ADDESTRAMENTO è il nome del gioco sublime che alcuni chiamano ancora VITA. Tutti parlano con proprietà dell'amore. della libertà, dei sogni ecc.Pochi sono in grado di comprendere semplici equazioni. Essendo la parola un elemento quotidiano ci appare accessibile. E questo è un errore, la parola è più ermetica della fisica moderna, la parola è una trappola mortale. Che ve ne pare?"
Author: Efraim Medina Reyes
17. "It is the devil's greatest triumph when he can deprive us of the joy of the Spirit. He carries fine dust with him in little boxes and scatters it through the cracks in our conscience in order to dim the soul's pure impulses and its luster. But the joy that fills the heart of the spiritual person destroys the deadly poison of the serpent. But if any are gloomy and think that they are abandoned in their sorrow, gloominess will continuously tear at them or else they will waste away in empty diversions. When gloominess takes root, evil grows. If it is not dissolved by tears, permanent damage is done."
Author: Francis Of Assisi
18. "Some days passed before I could rid my thoughts of Thecla of certain impressions belonging to the false Thecla who had initiated me into the anacreontic diversions and fruitions of men and women. Possibly this had an effect opposite to that Master Gurloes intended, but I do not think so. I believe I was never less inclined to love the unfortunate woman than when I carried in my memory the recent impressions of having enjoyed her freely; it was as I saw it more and more clearly for the untruth it was that I felt myself drawn to redress the fact, and drawn through her (though I was hardly conscious of it at the time) to the world of ancient knowledge an privilege she represented. The books I has carried to her became my university, she my oracle."
Author: Gene Wolfe
19. "We should all celebrate the magnitude of diverse and unique souls that live in our world today, for it is an essence that makes our lives colourful every singleday."
Author: Gloria D. Gonsalves
20. "Sports and management are not as diverse as people think."
Author: Harsha Bhogle
21. "The animal merely makes a bed, which he warms with his body in a sheltered place; but man, having discovered fire, boxes up some air in a spacious apartment, and warms that, instead of robbing himself, makes that his bed, in which he can move about divested of more cumbrous clothing, maintain a kind of summer in the midst of winter, and by means of windows even admit the light and with a lamp lengthen out the day."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
22. "Amo tutto ciò che scorre, tutto ciò che ha in sé tempo e divenire, che ci riporta al principio dove non c'è mai fine: la violenza dei profeti, l'oscenità che è estasi, la saggezza del fanatico, il prete con la sua gommosa litania, le parole sozze della puttana, lo sputo portato via nella fogna, il latte della mammella e l'amaro miele che si riversa dall'utero, tutto ciò che è fluido, fuso, dissoluto e dissolvente, tutto il pus e il sudiciume che scorrendo si purifica, che perde il suo senso originario, che fa il grande circuito verso la morte e la dissoluzione. Il grande desiderio incestuoso è scorrere all'unisono col tempo, fondere la grande immagine dell'aldilà con quella dell'hic et nunc. Un desiderio fatuo, suicida, reso stitico dalle parole e paralizzato dal pensiero."
Author: Henry Miller
23. "It's different in Scotland. People who come to readings are more interested in literature as such, but the readership in general is really quite diverse. It's a cliche, but it's said that people who read my books don't read any other books, and you do get that element."
Author: Irvine Welsh
24. "I am a nerd, but I don't dive head-first into any fiefdom of nerdiness, except for maybe 'Star Trek.'"
Author: James McAvoy
25. "In a post-9/11 world, diversity has become even more important."
Author: Jane Harman
26. "But nothing will persuade me that the mere fact of being in a place is enough in itself to justify the effort of getting out of bed to become a tourist, or even a traveller. I don't have the slightest wish to be intrepid. I don't want to prove myself to myself or anyone else. I don't care if no one thinks me brave or hardy. I have no concern at all that I did not have whatever it is I should have had to take a dive out of a plane or off a building. None of that matters to me in the least."
Author: Jenny Diski
27. "If you currently travel abroad or plan to in the future, make sure you understand the cultural convention of the country that you are visiting. Particularly with regard to greetings. If someone gives you a weak hand-shake, don't grimace. If anyone takes your arm, don't wince. If you are in the Middle East and a person wants to hold your hand, hold it. If you are a man visiting Russia, don't be surprised when your male host kisses your cheek, rather than hand. All of these greetings are as natural as way to express genuine sentiments as an American handshake. I am honored when an Arab or Asian man offers to take my hand because I know that it is a sign of high respect and trust. Accepting these cultural differences is the first step to better understanding and embracing diversity."
Author: Joe Navarro
28. "- Ti-ai pus vreodata intrebarea de ce evolutia speciilor si-a dat atata osteneala sa ajunga la aceasta infinita diversitate de forme si dimensiuni? Asta ti se pare tot o inutila punere in scena?"
Author: John Fowles
29. "When speaking of the mighty Andes and the so-called "eyebrows" country at the range's eastern base- the Tropical Wet Forest region-I am first obliged to give homage to the Apu, the Mountain Lords, the ice-capped everlasting sovereigns of these great lands, on whose forested slopes manifests the most marvelous biological diversity."
Author: Jonathon Miller Weisberger
30. "The value of tolerance is central to living in today's world - especially in diverse places like the Bronx."
Author: Jose Serrano
31. "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the road less traveled by and they CANCELLED MY FRIKKIN' SHOW. I totally shoulda took the road that had all those people on it. Damn."
Author: Joss Whedon
32. "Kizzy wanted to be a woman who would dive off the prow of a sailboat into the sea, who would fall back in a tangle of sheets, laughing, and who could dance a tango, lazily stroke a leopard with her bare foot, freeze an enemy's blood with her eyes, make promises she couldn't possibly keep, and then shift the world to keep them. She wanted to write memoirs and autograph them at a tiny bookshop in Rome, with a line of admirers snaking down a pink-lit alley. She wanted to make love on a balcony, ruin someone, trade in esoteric knowledge, watch strangers as coolly as a cat. She wanted to be inscrutable, have a drink named after her, a love song written for her, and a handsome adventurer's small airplane, champagne-christened Kizzy, which would vanish one day in a windstorm in Arabia so that she would have to mount a rescue operation involving camels, and wear an indigo veil against the stinging sand, just like the nomads.Kizzy wanted."
Author: Laini Taylor
33. "Bill C-9 was supposed to be a budget bill, but it came with innumerable measures that had little or nothing to do with the nation's finances. It was, as critics put it, the advance of the Harper agenda by stealth, yet another abuse of the democratic process. The bill was a behemoth. It was 904 pages, with 23 separate sections and 2,208 individual clauses....As a Reform MP, [Stephen Harper] .... said of one piece of legislation that 'the subject matter of the bill is so diverse that a single vote on the content would put members in conflict with their own principles.' The bill he referred to was 21 page long -- or 883 pages shorter than the one he was now putting before Parliament."
Author: Lawrence Martin
34. "Ours is a colourful and diversified world. It is also a complex one."
Author: Li Peng
35. "Our food is safer and our diets are more diverse than ever before; production methods are becoming increasingly sustainable, clean and efficient; and we are constantly becoming better at protecting biodiversity."
Author: Louise Fresco
36. "My short attention span has allowed me a life of diversity in work and place."
Author: Maira Kalman
37. "Un motto, in sintesi, domina e illumina i nostri studi: <>. Non diciamo che il bravo storico è estraneo alle passioni; ha per lo meno quella. Motto, non nascondiamocelo, carico di difficoltà, ma anche di speranze. Soprattutto, motto carico di amicizia. Persino nell'azione, noi giudichiamo troppo. E' comodo gridare <> Non comprendiamo mai abbastanza. Chi è diverso da noi - straniero, avversario politico - passa, quasi necessariamente, per un cattivo. Anche per condurre le lotte che non si possono evitare, un po' più di intelligenza delle anime sarebbe necessaria; a maggior ragione, per evitarle, quando si è ancora in tempo. La storia, purché rinunci alle sue false arie da arcangelo, deve aiutarci a guarire a questo difetto. Essa è una vasta esperienza delle varietà umane, un luogo di incontro fra gli uomini. La vita, come la scienza, ha tutto da guadagnare dal fatto che questo incontro sia fraterno."
Author: Marc Bloch
38. "M'importava assai poco che l'accordo ottenuto fosse esteriore, imposto, probabilmente temporaneo; sapevo che il bene e il male sono una questione d'abitudine, che il temporaneo si prolunga, che le cose esterne penetrano all'interno, e che la maschera, a lungo andare, diventa il volto."
Author: Marguerite Yourcenar
39. "If you are well-mannered towards those whose views are similar to yours, you may be said to exhibit a fairly good character. But, if you behave properly wit those holding divergent views from you or who criticize you, then you deserve to be credited with having an excellent character. (p. 99)"
Author: Maulana Wahiduddin Khan
40. "Por no haber sabido hablar conforme a lo ordenado, tendréis distinto modo de vivir y diversa comida. No viviréis ya en comunión plácida; cada cual huirá de su semejante, temeroso de su inquina y de su hambre, y buscará lugar que oculte su torpeza y su miedo."
Author: Popol Vuh
41. "The word "religion" has been hi-jacked and debased by the priests of faiths like these, until now it has become a dirty word amongst intelligent, right-thinking people in the Western world. The word "religion" springs from roots meaning piety, the Latin religio, the opposite idea to negligens, negligent, uncaring, unaware. It also springs from a root meaning to join together things that are separate, which in fact is the same meaning as the word "yoga" (compare the English word yoke, which ties oxen together, for example). So religion is a word which describes the process of becoming aware and unified, of joining together all things which are diverse; it is the union of body and spirit, self and not-self, human and god."
Author: Rodney Orpheus
42. "And what if all of animated natureBe but organic harps diversely framed,That tremble into thought, as o'er them sweepsPlastic and vast, one intellectual breeze,At once the Soul of each, and God of All?"
Author: Samuel Taylor Coleridge
43. "Once Dad took us to an amusement park in Oregon. Before I ever manifested. I plummeted twenty stories on a drop ride. Totally helpless to gravity. Unable to fly, to save myself ... I feel that same helpless terror now. Because nothing I say will divert Mom off her present course. Nothing will make her realize what she's doing to me. I'm falling. And this time nothing will save me. No mechanical device will work its wonder and jerk me back at the last minute. But she does realize, a small voice whispers through me. That's why she's doing it. That's why she brought you here. She wants me to hit ground."
Author: Sophie Jordan
44. "Ideally, I'd like every issue to include a diverse group of stories that meet the qualifications sketched above, but covering a wide range of specific matter and flavour."
Author: Stanley Schmidt
45. "We have to choose life. Choose risk. Choose love. The only safe place for our hearts is to dive deeply into the magnificent, eternal, ridiculous, overwhelming love that God has for us."
Author: Stasi Eldredge
46. "I hadn't had a book in my hands for four months, and the mere idea of a book where I could see words printed one after another, lines, pages, leaves, a book in which I could pursue new, different, fresh thoughts to divert me, could take them into my brain, had something both intoxicating and stupefying about it."
Author: Stefan Zweig
47. "To expect for me to be one-way every time you see me is to expect me to be a one-dimensional man, which I've never been. I've always applauded my efforts to be diverse and multi-faceted."
Author: T.I.
48. "It ain't time to teach her how to float, just dive and rescue her."
Author: Toba Beta
49. "If you throw yourself into danger for no reason again, you will have become nothing more than a Dauntless adrenaline junkie looking for a hit, and I'm not going to help you do it." He spits the words out bitterly. "I love Tris the Divergent, who makes decisions apart from faction loyalty, who isn't some faction archetype. But the Tris who's trying as hard as she can to destroy herself... I can't love her."
Author: Veronica Roth
50. "There, at a depth to which divers would find it difficult to descend, are caverns, haunts, and dusky mazes, where monstrous creatures multiply and destroy each other. Huge crabs devour fish and are devoured in their turn. Hideous shapes of living things, not created to be seen by human eyes wander in this twilight. Vague forms of antennae, tentacles, fins, open jaws, scales, and claws, float about there, quivering, growing larger, or decomposing and perishing in the gloom, while horrible swarms of swimming things prowl about seeking their prey.To gaze into the depths of the sea is, in the imagination, like beholding the vast unknown, and from its most terrible point of view. The submarine gulf is analogous to the realm of night and dreams. There also is sleep, unconsciousness, or at least apparent unconsciousness, of creation. There in the awful silence and darkness, the rude first forms of life, phantomlike, demoniacal, pursue their horrible instincts."
Author: Victor Hugo
