1. "The forests were crippled, the wheat fields vanished; in place of the grass there reappeared stone and drifting sand. Men perished and moved on, the cities sank back into the sand, the dust settled over them. Thousands of years later Nordic dreamers dug up the petrified culture from the rubble and ashes. Today, the entire picture of the former paradise stands before our eyes as a spent dream which had once produced life, beauty and strength as long as a superior race ruled. It will live again and it will dream again. But as soon as races of a dreamless kind took over and attempted to realize the dream, reality vanished with the dream."
Author: Alfred Rosenberg

Author: Bill Ectric
4. "I thought of my father, alone and elsewhere, his head cradled in his hands. I thought of the day he'd punched a hole straight through the kitchen wall, thinking she'd be tucked away inside. All those places he'd looked and never found. Inside their mattress. In stained-glass windows. How he'd scoured the carpet for her stray hair and strung them all together with a ribbon; how he'd slept with that one lock swathed across his nostrils, hugging a pillow fitted with a nightshirt. How he'd dug up the backyard, stripped and sweating. How he'd played her favorite album on repeat and loud, a lure. How when we took up the carpet in my bedroom to find her, under the carpet was wood. Under the wood there was cracked concrete. Under the concrete there was dirt. Under the dirt there was a cavity of water. I swam down into the water with my nose clenched and lungs burning in my chest but I could not find the bottom and I couldn't see a thing."
Author: Blake Butler

Author: Charles R. Swindoll
8. "One Monday, just for sport, Charlie grabbed an eggplant that a spectacularly wizened granny was going for, but instead of twisting it out of his hand with some mystic kung fu move as he expected, she looked him in the eye and shook her head - just a jog, barely perceptible really - it might have been a tic, but it was the most eloquent of gestures. Charlie read it as saying: O White Devil, you do not want to purloin that purple fruit, for I have four thousand years of ancestors and civilization on you; my grandparents built the railroads and dug the silver mines, and my parents survived the earthquake, the fire, and a society that outlawed even being Chinese; I am mother to a dozen, grandmother to a hundred, and great-grandmother to a legion; I have birthed babies and washed the dead; I am history and suffering and wisdom; I am a Buddha and a dragon; so get your fucking hand off my eggplant before you lose it."
Author: Christopher Moore

10. "Izzi: Remember Moses Morales? Tom Verde: Who? Izzi: The Mayan guide I told you about. Tom Verde: From your trip. Izzi: Yeah. The last night I was with him, he told me about his father, who had died. Well Moses wouldn't believe it. Tom Verde: Izzi... Izzi: [embraces Tom] No, no. Listen, listen. He said that if they dug his father's body up, it would be gone. They planted a seed over his grave. The seed became a tree. Moses said his father became a part of that tree. He grew into the wood, into the bloom. And when a sparrow ate the tree's fruit, his father flew with the birds. He said... death was his father's road to awe. That's what he called it. The road to awe. Now, I've been trying to write the last chapter and I haven't been able to get that out of my head! Tom Verde: Why are you telling me this? Izzi: I'm not afraid anymore, Tommy."
Author: Darren Aronofsky

Doran shouted. "I want to get off!" "You can't get off!" Skulduggery shouted back over the roar. "If you get off you'll die!" "I'll die?" "I don't know," Skulduggery shouted. "Probably."

19. "Per aspera ad astra...Slutio sam da se za tu relaciju vadi povratna karta. Od samog pocetka nešto mi je bilo sumnjivo. Kad se dogodilo to što se dogodilo i kad sam krenuo na dugo putovanje nazad u svakodnevicu, pokušao sam sebi, kao razumnom coveku, da objasnim da je tako moralo biti, i da sve to sigurno ima i nekih dobrih strana.Samo, još nisam otkrio ni jednu...Nema veze, ne žurim. Svašta se prica po caršiji o znaku horoskopa pod kojim sam roden, ali jednu stvar niko ne može da nam ospori. Strpljenje...Šta mu to ono dode? Osobina ili mana?"

21. "The last weeks of the school year spun out before James like a blur, remarkably free of deathly peril and adventure, but packed nonetheless with the lesser stresses of schoolwork and final essays and wand practicals, all of which were relatively welcome in the wake of the Hall of Elders' Crossing. To no one's great surprise, Hufflepuff was awarded the House Cup, being the only house to avoid major point deductions for involvement in the various Merlin conspiracy skullduggeries. The broomstick caper alone had cost Ravenclaw and Gryffindor fifty points each."

Then I dug right into the cold hard ground, deep down. Without of course telling anyone what I had in the pot,then I stuck this pot the size of a little quart saucepan into the ground and I covered the hole in the ground with ice for a long time, and that despite the presence of people who had no inkling what I was ridding myself of in this little improvised coffin."

25. "An endless series of gambits backed by gigantic investments encouraged young people entering the online world for the first time to create standardized presences on sites like Facebook. Commercial interests promoted the widespread adoption of standardized designs like the blog, and these designs encouraged pseudonymity in at least some aspects of their designs, such as comments, instead of the proud extroversion that characterized the first wave of web culture.Instead of people being treated as the sources of their own creativity, commercial aggregation and abstraction sites presented anonymized fragments of creativity as products that might have fallen from the sky or been dug up from the ground, obscuring the true sources."

30. "A tamo,na nebesima,sedeo je Bog i nije odvajao pogled od mene,pazio je da se moja propast odvija po svim pravilima umetnosti,ravnomerno i polako,ne izlazeci iz ritma.A u ponorima pakla djavoli se ljute sto se toliko dugo opirem da izvrsim neki veliki zlocin,neki neoprostiv greh za koji bi me Gospod u svojoj pravednosti bacio u bezdan..."

His hips slammed against mine. And...damn."

42. "It's finger time!" Steve simply grunted.Li responded like she always had to the request over the past years, by walking over to the tall oak cabinet in his office and pulling out a pack of Vienna Fingers. She then closed the door and walked around the desk and dropped to her knees, crawling the few extra feet under his desk. Li handed the red and white plastic package of cookies to Steve, who slid the tray open while his virtual slave unzipped the trousers of his blue Armani pinstripe suit and then dug deep to find his pleasure source.Twenty seconds later, when both of them had consumed their mid-afternoon snacks, Steve transitioned back into his unrelenting work persona."

Author: Rebecca West
44. "This was their way of honoring the dead. The story over, the demands of their own hard, rough lives began to re-assert themselves in their hearts, in their nerves, their blood and appetites. Would that the dead were not dead! But there is grass that must be eaten, pellets that must be chewed, hraka that must be passed, holes that must be dug, sleep that must be slept. Odysseus brings not one man to shore with him. Yet he sleeps sound beside Calypso and when he wakes thinks only of Penelope."
Author: Richard Adams
45. "Dvije stavke odreduju današnji liberalan tolerantni stav prema drugima: poštivanje drugih, otvorenost spram njih i opsesivni strah od uznemiravanja. Drugi je OK toliko dugo dok njegovo prisustvo nije nametljivo, toliko dugo dok drugi nije doista drugi. Tolerancija se podudara sa svojom suprotnošcu: moja dužnost da budem tolerantan spram drugog u biti znaci da mu ne smijem doci preblizu, da ne smijem uci u njegov/njezin prostor – ukratko, da trebam poštivati njegovu/njezinu netoleranciju prema mojoj prevelikoj blizini. To je ono što se sve više i više pojavljuje kao središnje »ljudsko pravo« u našem društvu: pravo da nas se ne uznemiruje, odnosno, da budemo na sigurnoj razdaljini od drugih."
Author: Slavoj Žižek
46. "I dug out an old brown suitcase and threw a few clothes into it, then looked around my bedroom for memorabilia, but stopped when I remembered that the purpose of memorabilia is to trigger memory. I didn't want to be lugging my memories all over the place. They were to heavy."
Author: Steve Toltz
47. "The music defied classification. If I had been writing areview of the show, I would have labeled it progressive,guitar-driven rock 'n' roll. But the guitars made sounds guitarsdidn't always make. Symphonic sounds. Sacred sounds.The music dug in so deep you didn't hear it so much as feelit, reminding me of a dream I used to have when I was a kid,where I would be standing on a street corner, I would jumpinto the air, flap my arms, and soar up into the sky.That's the only way I could describe the music.It was the sonic equivalent of flight."
Author: Tiffanie DeBartolo
48. "Kafamda bu dusunceler gecip duruyordur, kalbim parcalanmisti, perisandi, cevremdeki insanlarla sevinmek istiyor, ama bunu yapamiyordum. Kendimi bir hain gibi hissediyordum, o buyuk hatayi ben yapmisim gibi, buna bizzat kendi, varligim ve kisiligimle ben neden olmusum gibi. Annem insanin kendi kendine acimasina neden olan o sucluluk duygusunu ogretmisti bana, hayatimin buyuk bir bolumunde bu duyguyu hep yasadim. Cocukca ve yanlis oldugunu bildigim icin bu duyguyla savastimsa da, o gerginlik ve baski altinda cocuklasmak, yanlis yapmak, tekrar bu duyguya yenik dusmek cok kolaydi."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
49. "Ledakan ilmu yang dikatakan berlaku masa kini sebenarnya lebih tepat disifatkan sebagai ledakan maklumat kerana dalam banyak hal maklumat yang pelbagai dan kadang-kadang saling bertentangan itu bukan sahaja tidak bermakna, malah lebih banyak menimbulkan kekeliruan. Maklumat yang tidak benar, walaupun mungkin bermakna besar kepada pemiliknya bukanlah ilmu, tetapi sekadar perasaan (dugaan), syak, atau zan. Perasaan (atau dugaan), syak dan zan atau gejala lain yang anti-ilmu akan hancur jika ditentangi oleh ilmu."
Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
50. "He was an old hand at the Camp now, his hollow countenance and the intensity of his averted gaze familiar to all who came and went around him. Some had carried to other camps a description of his lanky, quiet presence, had spoken of his strangeness, his regular, lone attendance before the chapel statue. He had made no friends, but in his duties was conscientious and persevering and reliable, known for such qualities to the officers who commanded him. He had dug latrines, metalled roads, adequately performed cookhouse duties, followed instructions as to the upkeep of equipment, and was the first to volunteer when volunteers were called for. That he bore his torment with fortitude was known to no one."
