2. "Avete mai provato per qualcuno una di quelle irresistibili simpatie che fanno sì che vedendo una persona per la prima volta, credete di conoscerlo da lungo tempo, e vi domandate dove è quando l'abbiate vista, cosicché, non potendo ricordarvi né il luogo né il tempo finite con il credere che sia stato in un mondo anteriore al nostri, e che questa simpatia sia un ricordo che si risvegli?"
Author: Alexandre Dumas
3. "Radošs darbs nav veicams kaut kada bridi un pec paveles. Dailnieks var stradat tikai tad, kad jutas aicinats! Ja velaties uzrakstit kaut ko lielaku, tad jums jaiemacas iedvesmi organizet – izsaukt pec paveles!… Vispirms meginiet ieturet noteiktas darba stundas! Nekas ta nepalidz ka regularitate. Sestieties pie galda ari tad, ja jums nepavisam negribas rakstit! …Meginiet virzit domas uz aprakstamo tematu un piezimejiet visu, kas šini sakara jums nak prata, lai ari sakariba liktos gluži absurda.

4. "Amerika! Te jau cilveks ne mirkliti nedriksteja aizmirsties savas pardomas. Te bija jatur acis pirkstos un jadoma tikai par celu un pedaliem, citadi draudeja, ja ne tieši atrs gals, tad nepatikšanas un izdošanas. Te nevareja vis ka Kopenhagena, Liepaja vai Riga, leni staigajot pa liepu alejam, izdomat domu domas un izsapnot veselus romanus! Automobili nokava gara darbibu."
Author: Anšlavs Eglitis
5. "Un giorno,però, a diciotto anni, leggendo l'autobiografia di John Stuart Mill 1 , trovai questafrase: «Mio padre mi insegnò che la domanda: "Chi mi creò?" non può avere risposta,perché suggerisce immediatamente un nuovo interrogativo: "Chi creò Dio?"»Compresi allora quanto fosse errato l'argomento della Causa Prima. Se tutto deveavere una causa, anche Dio deve averla. Se niente può esistere senza una causa, alloraperché il mondo sì e Dio no? Questo principio della Causa Prima non è miglioredell'analoga teoria indù, che afferma come il mondo poggi sopra un elefante, el'elefante sopra una tartaruga. Alla domanda: «E la tartaruga dove poggia?» l'indùrispose: «Vogliamo cambiare discorso?» Non c'è dunque motivo per sostenere che ilmondo debba proprio avere una causa ed un'origine. Potrebbe anche essere sempreesistito. È soltanto la nostra scarsa immaginazione che vuole trovare un'origine atutto."
Author: Bertrand Russell
6. "A domain name is your address, your address on the Internet. We all have a physical address; we're all going to need an address in cyberspace. They're becoming increasingly important. I believe we'll get to the point where when you're born, you'll be issued a domain name."
Author: Bob Parsons

8. "- Chaque clan a ses règles, Beth, dis-je d'une voix calme. Si je ne m'abuse, les loups sont même champions dans ce domaine.- Non. Nous, on ne se serait jamais permis de faire ça. On a trop le sens de l'hospitalité.- T'as raison. Pas plus tard qu'hier, un de tes petits copains a menacé de ma violer puis ensuite de m'égorger parce que j'étais entrée sur votre territoire. Maurane, elle, au moins, m'a servi des petits gâteaux avant de tenter de me droguer avec son thé.- Faut toujours que tu critiques, dit-elle en amorçant un sourire.- Qu'est-ce que tu veux, c'est mon côté français, on n'est jamais content, dis-je d'un ton las."
Author: Cassandra O'Donnell

15. "Liberation as an intellectual mission, born in the resistance and opposition to the confinements and ravages of imperialism, has now shifted from the settled, established, and domesticated dynamics of culture to its unhoused, decentred, and exilic energies, energies whose incarnation today is the migrant, and whose conciousness is that of the intellectual and artist in exile, the political figure between domains, between forms, between homes, and between languages. From this perspective then all things are indeed counter, original, spare, strange. From this perspective also, one can see 'the complete consort dancing together' contrapuntally."
Author: Edward W. Said
16. "C'è in me quello che si trova in molti uomini del mondo, amori, spari, qualche frase piena di spine, nessuna voglia di parlarne. Siamo dozzina noi altri uomini. Speciale è solo vivere, guardarsi di sera il palmo di mano e sapere che domani torna fresco di nuovo, che il sarto della notte cuce pelle, rammenda calli, rabbercia gli strappi e sgonfia la fatica."
Author: Erri De Luca
17. "Ombrosa non c'è più. Guardando il cielo sgombro, mi domando se è davvero esistita. Quel frastaglio di rami e foglie, biforcazioni, lobi, spiumii, minuto e senza fine, e il cielo a sprazzi irregolari e ritagli, forse c'era solo perché ci passasse mio fratello con suo leggero passo di codibugnolo, era un ricamo fatto di nulla che assomiglia a questo filo d'inchiostro, come l'ho lasciato correre per pagine e pagine, zeppo di cancellature, di rimandi, di sgorbi nervosi, di macchie, di lacune, che a momenti si sgrana in grossi acini chiari, a momenti si infittisce in segni minuscoli come semi puntiformi, ora si ritorce su se stesso, ora si biforca, ora collega grumi di frasi con contorni di foglie o di nuvole, e poi si intoppa, e poi ripiglia a attorcigliarsi, e corre e corre e si sdipana e avvolge un ultimo grappolo insensato di parole idee sogni ed è finito."
Author: Italo Calvino

19. "Lastly, and doubtless always, but particularly at the end of the last century, certain scholars considered that since the appearances on our scale were finally the only important ones for us, there was no point in seeking what might exist in an inaccessible domain. I find it very difficult to understand this point of view since what is inaccessible today may become accessible tomorrow (as has happened by the invention of the microscope), and also because coherent assumptions on what is still invisible may increase our understanding of the visible."
Author: Jean Baptiste Perrin

Author: Jules Verne
25. "Today's milestone is human madness. Politics is a part of it, particularly in its lethal outbursts. Politics is not, as it was for Hannah Arendt, the field where human freedom is unfurled. The modern world, the world of world war, the Third World, the underground world of death that acts upon us, do not have the civilized splendor of the Greek city state. The modern political domain is massively, in totalitarian fashion, social, leveling, exhausting. Hence madness is a space of antisocial, apolitical, and paradoxically free individuation"
Author: Julia Kristeva
26. "Anger is precious. A silverback uses his anger to maintain order and warn his troop of danger. When my father beat his chest, it was to say, Beware, listen, I am in charge. I am angry to protect you, because that is what I was born to do.Here in my domain, there is no one to protect."
Author: Katherine Applegate

28. "Julien le aveva chiesto cosa l'aveva spinta verso la matematica e lei aveva risposto che la trovava rassicurante.«Io la definirei piuttosto come qualcosa che intimidisce, mi sembra più pertinente.»«È anche questo.»Pari aveva detto che trovava consolazione nella stabilità delle verità matematiche, nella mancanza di arbitrarietà e nell'assenza di ambiguità. Nel sapere che le risposte potevano essere elusive, ma che si potevano trovare. Erano lì che aspettavano sulla lavagna, qualche passaggio più sotto.«In altre parole, niente di simile alla vita» aveva commentato Julien. «Dove le domande o non hanno alcuna risposta o ne trovano una ingarbugliata.»"
Author: Khaled Hosseini
29. "«Chérie, guardo scomparire le stelle», spiegò dopo un minuto.«Perché?» domando io.«Perché anche se non riesci a vederle sono sempre là» disse. «Si stanno solo nascondendo dietro il sole.»«E con questo?» replicai timidamente io.Lei mi lasciò andare e si chinò per guardarmi negli occhi. «Tesoro mio, è bello rammentare che non sempre hai bisogno di vedere qualcosa per sapere che c'è.»"
Author: Kristin Harmel
30. "H.M.," said the Woggle-Bug, pompously, "means Highly Magnified; and T.E. means Thoroughly Educated. I am, in reality, a very big bug, and doubtless the most intelligent being in all this broad domain.""How well you disguise it," said the Wizard."
Author: L. Frank Baum

Ti amo perché sei la risposta a ogni domanda che il mio cuore possa mai formulare."
Author: Lisa Kleypas

Author: Marc Ostrofsky
33. "The case for the humanities is not hard to make, though it can be difficult--to such an extent have we been marginalized, so long have we acceded to that marginalization--not to sound either defensive or naive. The humanities, done right, are the crucible within which our evolving notions of what it means to be fully human are put to the test; they teach us, incrementally, endlessly, not what to do but how to be. Their method is confrontational, their domain unlimited, their "product" not truth but the reasoned search for truth, their "success" something very much like Frost's momentary stay against confusion."
Author: Mark Slouka
34. "Si domandò quando esattamente i libri e le parole avessero incominciato a significare non solamente qualcosa, ma tutto."
Author: Markus Zusak
35. "Psychology is much bigger than just medicine, or fixing unhealthy things. It's about education, work, marriage - it's even about sports. What I want to do is see psychologists working to help people build strengths in all these domains."

Author: Neil Gaiman
39. "Millions of couples out there practiced the art of sadomasochism every day, without even realizing it. They went to work, came back, complained about everything, insulted their wife or were insulted by her, felt wretched, but were, nonetheless, tightly bound to their own unhappiness, not realizing that all it would take was a single gesture, a final goodbye, to free them from that oppression."
Author: Paulo Coelho
40. "Chester watched it shining clearly above the picnic grounds. Soon an astronaut would step down off the LEM of Apollo 11 and plant his foot on what had once been hallowed ground. Science would intrude on what for all known time had been the sole domain of poets and dreamers alone: the moon. After that, well -- one thing was for certain: no matter what they found up there, it would never again be as easy for a father to tell his young son that the mysterious ball of light that appeared in the heavens each night was really just a hunk of old cheese floating in the sky. Nothing would ever be that simple again."
Author: Quentin R. Bufogle
41. "I don't see why ogling same-sex kissing should be the exclusive domain of frat boys whacking off to lesbian action, that's so sexist. Feminism should be all inclusive- it should be about sexual liberation, equal pay for equal work, and the fundamental girl right of boy2boy appreciation."
Author: Rachel Cohn
42. "My brain was spinning. Demons, missing students...Why had my life suddenly become a Nancy Drew mystery from hell?"Okay, but that would mean..." I could hardly say the next words. They seemed unbelievable to me. "That would mean Mrs. Casnoff is in on it, and if that is the case,my dad would know something about it.""Not necessarily," Archer said. "Hecate Hall and Graymalkin Island are completely Mrs. Casnoff's domain. Your dad signs off on all the kids who're sentenced here, but past that, he leaves it all to her."Way to be screwed over by delegating, Dad."
Author: Rachel Hawkins
43. "Scientists have power by virtue of the respect commanded by the discipline... We live with poets and politicians, preachers and philosophers. All have their ways of knowing, and all are valid in their proper domain. The world is too complex and interesting for one way to hold all the answers."
Author: Stephen Jay Gould
44. "Mi si avvicinò, sfiorandomi la fronte con le labbra.Nessuno fu più sorpreso di me, anche se mi parve di sentire un'esclamazione trattenuta venire da Jared. Restai a bocca aperta, mentre Ian si voltava e usciva dalla stanza, quasi di corsa....mi si fece accanto, abbracciandomi. Lo sentivo respirare ritmicamente, più veloce del normale.Che cosa strana.«Vuole sapere cos'è stato a... cambiare il tuo atteggiamento. Perché a-desso ti fidi di noi?»Ci pensò per qualche istante. «Un... insieme di particolari. La tua... gentilezza nei confronti di Walter. Non ho visto mai nessuno, a parte Doc, ca-pace di tanta compassione. E poi hai salvato la vita a Kyle, quando la maggior parte di noi lo avrebbe lasciato cadere pur di salvarsi la pelle, a parte il tentativo di ucciderti. E poi sei una delusione, come bugiarda.» Fece una risata. «Mi sono intestardito a considerarli tutti indizi di un piano più complesso. Magari domattina quando mi sveglio la penserò ancora così.»"
Author: Stephenie Meyer

Author: Subcomandante Marcos
46. "Hatred is an unwanted domain of our heart. It obstructs the most harmonious way between you and your love. If you totally rely on what hate delivers, you'll be dazzled by its outcomes. So chase the path of love. Climb up the first stair and you won't need to wander over the entire staircase to look for its outcome."
Author: Supriya Kaur Dhaliwal
47. "A ghost is someone who hasn't made it - in other words, who died, and they don't know they're dead. So they keep walking around and thinking that you're inhabiting their - let's say, their domain. So they're aggravated with you."
Author: Sylvia Browne
48. "Often misunderstood, Dionysus is far more than a wine deity. He is the Breaker of Chains, who rescues not only the flesh but the heart and spirit from too much of worldly regulations and duties. He is a god of joy and freedom. Any uncultivated, tangled, and primal woodland is very much his domain."
Author: Tanith Lee
49. "You Bastard was thinking: there seems to be some growing dimensional instability here, swinging from zero to nearly forty-five degrees by the look of it. How interesting. I wonder what's causing it? Let V equal 3. Let Tau equal Chi/4. cudcudcud Let Kappa/y be an Evil-Smelling-Bugger* (* Renowned as the greatest camel mathematician of all time, who invented a math of eight-dimensional space while lying down with his nostrils closed in a violent sandstorm.) differential tensor domain with four imaginary spin co-efficients. . ."

50. "Rzeczywiscie, czesto sie zdarza, ze idzie sie do biblioteki, bo chce sie ksiazke o znanym tytule, ale glówna funkcja biblioteki, a przynajmniej funkcja biblioteki w moim domu i w domach wszystkich znajomych, jakich mozemy odwiedzac, jest odkrywanie ksiazek, których istnienia sie nie podejrzewalo, a które, jak sie okazuje, sa dla nas niezwykle wazne."
