9. "A szexizmus legnagyobbrészt onnan ered, hogy a férfiak megszokták, hogy mi vagyunk a vesztesek. Ez a probléma. Rossz a pozíciónk. Megszokták, hogy mi csak másodikak lehetünk, vagy diszkvalifikálnak a versenybol. A feminizmus elott született férfiak ezen nevelkedtek: másodosztályú állampolgár anyák; férjhez adandó novérek; osztálytársnok, akik titkárnoképzobe járnak, majd háziasszonyok lesznek. Nok, akik leszakadnak. Akik eltuntek. Ezek a férfiak a nagyvállalatok vezérigazgatói, a nagy tozsdecápák, a kormánytanácsadók. Ok határozzák meg a munkaidot és a szülési szabadságot, a gazdasági prioritásokat és a társadalmi normákat. És természetesen szemernyit sem érzik az egyenloséget – a szexizmus beleivódott nemzedékükbe a pudinggal, a nádpálcával és a golffal együtt. Automatikus reakciójuk a nok felé az, hogy ok „mások". A szabad, dolgozó novel szemben bevésodött eloítélet csak velük együtt fog kihalni."
Author: Caitlin Moran

Simon's in the doorway, leaning against the frame, smiling.No doubt I'm quite the sight in my bloody, sexy nurse's outfit, sitting on a bed next to a tied-up, taped-up target. "Oh, please." I collect my purse, my phone and my stun gun and walk around the bed.Simon's smile reaches deep into his dark blue eyes. He has a long face and delicate features for a man.I grab the sleeve of his black jacket and pull him into the outer room."What the fuck are you wearing? You look insane," he says."This? This is the creepy outfit the Alchemist put me in after he kidnapped me."Simon stops smiling. "Are you okay?""Yeah."
Author: Carolyn Crane
11. "I'm going to die. I'm going to die. I'm going to die-No.Heather took a deep breath and tried to think about something else. Anything else.Like ponies.Ponies were a happy thought. They were nice and gentle and they never kidnapped people or strapped them to cold warehouse pillars.Ponies, ponies, ponies-"Tie him up by the girl and for God's sake don't kill him!" Clare's - er, Raven's - voice was like nails on a chalkboard as it floated into Heather's ears.Any attempts to think of ponies came to an abrupt halt."
Author: Chelsea Fine

I didna say I wanted to run up a beanpole. Nor have I heard hide nor hair of a speech, bonny or otherwise.' ‘I'm saving it,' he said austerely, ‘till I've the theme for it.' ‘Oh!' said Grizel Beaton (Younger) of Buccleuch, with a squeal of delight. ‘Will Scott! Are we having our first married set-to?"
Author: Dorothy Dunnett
15. "Kilka zakretów dalej bylem juz zablakany z kretesem. Jedna ze szkól myslenia radzi w takich wypadkach skonsultowanie sie z mapa, lecz ja takim ludziom mówie po prostu: „A co, jesli sie nie ma mapy? A co, jesli ma sie tylko mape Dordogne?" Moja strategia wyglada tak: znajduje samochód albo najblizszy jego ekwiwalent, który wyglada tak, jakby wiedzial, dokad zmierza, i jade za nim. Rzadko laduje tam, gdzie zamierzalem, ale za to czesto laduje tam, gdzie powinienem byc."

Author: Elfriede Jelinek
17. "Nisam vjerovao u slikarstvo za "izabrane". Uvijek sam osjecao da slika mora pobuditi nešto i kod onoga tko je ne obicava inace gledati, kao što Moliere uspijeva nasmijati vrlo inteligentnog covjeka, kao i onoga koji ništa ne razumije. Shakespeare takoder. I u mom radu, jednako kao i u Shakespeareovom, cesto se mogu susresti burleskne stvari, relativno cak i vulgarne.Na taj nacin mogu svakome biti dostupan. To nije zbog toga što bih želio dobrodošlicu publike, vec što želim doprijeti do svakog stupnja mišljenja."
Author: Françoise Gilot

Two pairs of genes are coded by the same region of DNA using different reading frames."
Author: Frederick Sanger

Author: Gangai Victor
20. "Nije skrivala bilo kakve uznemirujuce tajne; što god se moglo ljudski ubiti, ona bi ubila. Mogla je tako beskrajno poživjeti, jednako kao i mjesec, kao bilo koja mrtva planeta koja zraci hipnotickim sjajem, diže plimu strasti, nagoni svijet u ludilo, svojim magnetskim, metalnim zracima oduzima boju svim zemaljskim stvarima. Sijuci vlastitu smrt, prenosi na svakoga paklensku groznicu. U odvratnoj mirnoci svog sna obnovila je vlastitu magnetsku smrt u dodiru s hladnom magmom pustih planetarnih svjetova."
Author: Henry Miller
21. "Well, the human genome has massive redundancy - that means that two per cent of the DNA does all the work of instructing the ribosomes that build the proteins that make up the cells of your body. Ninety-eight per cent of your DNA just sits there doing nothing. Taking up space in the gene."
Author: Ian McDonald

Author: Isaac Marion
23. "Jedna polowa ludzi na swiecie nie potrafi zrozumiec, dlaczego drugiej polowie cos sprawia przyjemnosc."
Author: Jane Austen
24. "Igen, részben igazad van. Egyvalamiben azonban semmiképp: nem ugyanaz nem megszületni, mint meghalni, mert aki meghal, nyomot hagy maga után, és ezt tudja is. Tudja, hogy soha többé semmirol sem lesz tudomása, de nyomok és emlékek maradnak utána. Hogy hiányozni fog – ezt te magad is mondtad –, és hogy akik ismerték, nem úgy viselkednek majd, mintha sohasem létezett volna. Lesz, aki buntudatot érez; aki azt kívánja, bárcsak jobban bánt volna vele az életben; aki sír miatta, és nem érti, miért nem felel, s aki megszenvedi a hiányát."
Author: Javier Marías
25. "Here's what I hadn't realized: the mother you haven't seen for almost thirty-six years isn't your mother, she's a stranger. Sharing DNA doesn't make you fast friends. This wasn't a joyous reunion. It was just awkward."
Author: Jodi Picoult
26. "These are all direct quotes, except every time they use a curse word, I'm going to use the name of a famous American poet:'You Walt Whitman-ing, Edna St. Vincent Millay! Go Emily Dickinson your mom!''Thanks for the advice, you pathetic piece of E.E. Cummings, but I think I'm gonna pass.''You Robert Frost-ing Nikki Giovanni! Get a life, nerd. You're a virgin.''Hey bro, you need to go outside and get some fresh air into you. Or a girlfriend.'I need to get a girlfriend into me? I think that shows a fundamental lack of comprehension about how babies are made."
Author: John Green
27. "Dame Edna is that rarest sighting in our time of the absolute comic, an inspired personification of caprice whose comedy answered the primal call to take the audience for a tumble."
Author: John Lahr
28. "Cooks were the mitochondria of humanity; they had their own separate DNA, they floated in a cell and powered it but were not really of it."
Author: Jonathan Franzen
29. "I was still alive. Ha! Take that kidnappers. Still alive. Maybe it was my butt that was feeding me. I always thought it was kind of round. I bet my body was eating up all the fat stores from my butt now. Yeah. See, having a big ass is a good thing. Good, good, good. They should put that in magazines. Why diet? Why stay thin? If you ever get kidnapped and left for dead, your fat ass could save your life!"
Author: Kate Brian
30. "Don't go; don't go! Oh! Edna, stay with me."
Author: Kate Chopin

Author: Kerrelyn Sparks
32. "Layne - "Do you have a gun or do you need me to get you one?"Colt – "My wife was kidnapped and nearly shot in the head, man. I got guns everywhere"
Author: Kristen Ashley
33. "Sve sretne obitelji su podjednako, svaki nesretna obitelj nesretna je na svoj nacin."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
34. "Jedna od najobicnijih i najraširenijih praznovjerica je ta da svaki covjek ima jedino svoja odredena svojstva, da je covjek dobar, zao, glup, energican, apatican itd. Ljudi nisu takvi. Možemo kazati o covjeku da je cešce dobar nego zao, cešce pametan nego glup, cešce energican nego apatican, i obratno; ali ce biti neistina ako reknemo o kojem covjeku da je dobar ili pametan, a o drugom da je zao ili glup. A mi uvijek tako dijelimo ljude. I to nije istina. Ljudi su kao rijeke: voda je u svima jednaka i svuda ista, ali svaka je rijeka sad uska, sad brza, sad široka, sad tiha, sad cista, sad hladna, sad mutna, sad topla. Tako i ljudi. Svaki covjek nosi u sebi zacetke svih ljudskih svojstava te ponekad ispoljava jedne, ponekad druge, i cesto nije nikako nalik na sebe, a ipak ostaje vazda onaj koji jest."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
35. "Oh, for the love of God. There is no agent more agent than you. I swear you have pin-striped ties encrypted into your DNA. When you die, the coffin is going to read Property of the FBI."
Author: Lisa Gardner
36. "I hate it, all of this," I screamed, my voice breaking. "I even hate him, even him." A huge sob came up from my chest.And I did, right then. I hated you for everything; for making me feel so helpless everywhere I went, for making me lose control. I hated you for all the emotions in my head, for the confusion... for the way I was suddenly doubting everything. I hated you for turning my life upside down and then smashing it into shards. I hated you for making me stand with a whirring fan in my hand, screaming at my mum. But I hated you for something else, too. Right then, and at every moment since you'd left me, all I could think about was you. I wanted you in that apartment. I wanted your arms around me, your face close to mine. I wanted your smell. And I knew I couldn't-shouldn't-have it. That's what I hated most. The uncertainty of you. You'd kidnapped me, put my life in danger... but I loved you, too. Or thought I did. None of it made sense."
Author: Lucy Christopher
37. "That guy back there had a gun," Christopher went on. "Brandon Stark didn't even have a gun, and he managed to kidnap you just by threatening to do mean things to your friends. How do you think you're going to cope with his dad, who's a real gangster?""Well," I said. Suddenly, I didn't feel quite so encouraged. There were actual tears in my eyes. "That's why this time I'm asking you for help. I know I can't do it alone anymore. I need you, Christopher.""You're damn right you do," he said. "It's about time you realized it."
Author: Meg Cabot
38. "... ono što se ne može objasniti samome sebi, treba govoriti drugome. Sebe možes obmanuti nekim dijelom slike koji se nametne, teško izrecivim osjecanjem, jer se skriva pred mukom saznavanja i bježi u omaglicu, u opijenost koja ne traži smisao. Drugome je neophodna tacna rijec, zato je i tražiš, osjecaš da je negde u tebi, i loviš je, nju ili njenu sjenku, prepoznaješ je na tudem licu, u tudem pogledu, kad pocne da shvata."
Author: Meša Selimović
39. "Nicholas: One of the oldest secrets of alchemy is that every living thing, from the most complex creatures right down to the simplest leaf, carries the seeds of its creation within itself.Josh: DNA."
Author: Michael Scott
40. "Ni jedna ljubav ne može preživjeti u šutnji."
Author: Milan Kundera
41. "A person's basic humanity is not governed by how he or she came into this world, or whether somebody else happens to have the same DNA."
Author: Nathan Myhrvold
42. "There's as many atoms in a single molecule of your DNA as there are stars in the typical galaxy. We are, each of us, a little universe."
Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
43. "Sputavamo htijenja, želje, cežnje, sebe ili drugih radi. Samo je misao slobodna, široka i duboka onoliko kolike joj dimenzije možemo dati. To je utješno, to je lijepo. Jedino tebi, moja nesanice, tvojim tužnom djetinjim ocima i drhtavim trepuškama zabranjujem i plovidbu prostranstvima misli. Zabranjujem... A u zadnje vrijeme me svaki kucaj srca podsjeca kako davno skrivena misao na tebe gospodari svim ostalim mislima."
Author: Nura Bazdulj Hubijar
44. "[Professor Kinnerton] Has the fact that we have about 97 percent of our DNA in common with chimpanzees escaped you? How can you still argue we are special and have a soul when we are so obviously animals? ... [Al Gleeson] With due respect sir, the 97 percent is precisely the problem. Are chimpanzees 97 percent of the way to splitting the atom? Are they 97 percent of the way to writing their first sonnet? Someone tittered at the back of the room. Are bonobos 97 percent of the way to putting the first bonobo on the moon? Is there an orangutan somewhere with a simian Mona Lisa 97 percent finished?"
Author: Peter Kazmaier
45. "Then she tells me that Jesus isstill herebecause Jesus wasonce here.And parts of Jesus arestill floating in the air.She tells me Jesus' DNA ispart of the collective DNA.She tells we are all partof Jesus, we are all Jesus in part.She tells me to breathe deepduring all our stormsbecause you can sometimes taste Jesusin a good, hard rain."
Author: Sherman Alexie
46. "If we were created from the very fiber of our birth parents' physical and emotional beings, don't you think our need to think about them would be innate? If we had primal conversations with our mother in the womb, wouldn't you say it is natural for us to think about her as we are growing up and growing old? And if our birth father's DNA helped determine the color of our hair and eyes, wouldn't you say that he is just as much a part of us as our mother and it is normal to want a relationship with him? Wherever we are in the spectrum of perceptions about our birth parents, we must rest assured that our thoughts are normal and healthy. They are part of the fiber of our being. Part of the package of being adopted. It is all about our identity...our dual identity."
Author: Sherrie Eldridge
47. "U životu svakog muškarca postoji samo jedna žena s kojom može postici savršeno zajedništvo, a u životu svake žene samo jedan muškarac s kojim se može osjecati potpuno. No medusobni susret, sudbina je koju dožive samo rijetki. Svi ostali prisiljeni su živjeti u stanju nezadovoljstva i trajne sjete."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
48. "Leš što si ga lane zakopao u baštiPušta li vec izdanke? Hoce li procvetati ove godine,Il' mu je nenadna stud leju uništila?"
Author: T.S. Eliot
49. "Nikt nie wie dlaczego, niezaleznie od mocy wybuchu, zawsze pozostaja dymiace buty. To chyba po prostu jedna z tych rzeczy..."
Author: Terry Pratchett
50. "Two years ago," she says, "I was afraid of spiders, suffocation, walls that inch slowly inward and trap you between them,getting thrown out of Dauntless, uncontrollable bleeding, getting run over by a train, my father's death,public humiliation, and kidnapping by men without faces."Everyone stares blankly at her."Most of you will have anywhere from ten to fifteen years in your fear landscapes. That is the average number," she says."What's the lowest number someone has gotten?" asks Lynn."In recent years," says Lauren, "four."I have not looked at Tobias since we were in the cafeteria,but I can't help but look at him now. He keeps his eyes trained on the floor. I knew that four was a low number, low enough to merit a nickname,but I didn't know it was less than half the average.I glare at my feet.He's exceptional. And now he won't even look at me."
Author: Veronica Roth
