1. "When the late Pope John Paul II decided to place the woman so strangely known as "Mother" Teresa on the fast track for beatification, and thus to qualify her for eventual sainthood, the Vatican felt obliged to solicit my testimony and I thus spent several hours in a closed hearing room with a priest, a deacon, and a monsignor, no doubt making their day as I told off, as from a rosary, the frightful faults and crimes of the departed fanatic. In the course of this, I discovered that the pope during his tenure had surreptitiously abolished the famous office of "Devil's Advocate," in order to fast-track still more of his many candidates for canonization. I can thus claim to be the only living person to have represented the Devil pro bono."
Author: “Mother” Teresa
2. "Only God was able to create a free creature, and freedom could only arise by the act of creation. Freedom is not the result or product of evolution. Freedom and product are disparate ideas. God does not produce or construct. He creates. We used to say the same for artists, for the artist who constructs does not create a personality but rather a poster of man. A personality cannot be constructed. Maybe sooner or later, during this century or after a million years of continued civilization, man will succeed in constructing an imitation of himself, a kind of robot or monster, something similar to its constructor. This human-looking monster may look very much like man, but one thing is certain: it will never have freedom. Without a divine touch, the result of evolution would not have been man, but rather a developed animal, a super-animal, a creature with a human body and intelligence but without a heart and personality."
Author: Alija Izetbegovic

14. "A lucidez em alguns, é um dado primordial, um privilégio, e mesmo um dom. Não têm necessidade de adquiri-la, de procurá-la: são predestinados a ela. Todas as experiências contribuem para torná-los transparentes diante de si mesmos. Se vivem numa crise permanente, a aceitam com naturalidade: ela é imanente à sua existência. Em outros, a lucidez é um resultado tardio, o fruto de um acidente, de uma rachadura interior que ocorre em dado momento. Ao que tudo indica, viver é desmoronar progressivamente."
Author: Emil Cioran

23. "Hell had become, over the years, a wearisome speculation. Even its proselytizers have neglected it, abandoning the poor, but serviceable, human allusion which the ecclesiastic fires of the Holy Office once had in this world: a temporal torment, of course, but one that was not unworthy, within its terrestrial limitations, of being a metaphor for the immortal, for the perfect pain without destruction that the objects of divine wrath will forever endure. Whether or not this hypothesis is satisfactoy, an increasing lassitude in the propaganda of the institution is indisputable. (Do not be alarmed; I use propaganda here not in its commercial but rather in its Catholic genealogy: a congregation of cardinals.)"
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
24. "El viaje no acaba nunca. Solo los viajeros acaban. E incluso estos pueden prolongarse en memoria, en recuerdo, en relatos. Cuando el viajero se sentó en la arena de la playa y dijo: "no hay nada más que ver", sabía que no era así. El fin de un viaje es sólo el inicio de otro. Hay que ver lo que no se ha visto, ver otra vez lo que ya se vio, ver en primavera lo que se había visto en verano, ver de día lo que se vio de noche, con el sol lo que antes se vio bajo la lluvia, ver la siembra verdeante, el fruto maduro, la piedra que ha cambiado de lugar, la sombra que aquí no estaba. Hay que volver a los pasos ya dados, para repetirlos y para trazar caminos nuevos a su lado. Hay que comenzar de nuevo el viaje. Siempre. El viajero vuelve al camino. —Viaje a Portugal, Saramago—"
Author: José Saramago
25. "Dorin?a carna?a, acea stare necunoscuta îndeosebi sub numele de "îndragostire", este un soi de demen?a. Este un soi de distorsionare a realita?i, dar atît de considerabila încît ar trebui, pe drept cuvînt, sa se permita celor mul?i dintre noi sa întelegem celelalte forme de benunie ?i sa manifestam mai multa simpatie fa?a de cei afecta?i de ele. ?i cu toate acestea, ?tim cu to?ii , ea este o demen?a care, indiferent cît de aprinsa, rareori dureaza mult."

26. "For indeed, what is more dire than the evils which today afflict the world? What is more terrible for the discerning than the unfolding events? What is more pitiable and frightening for those who endure them?

Author: Maximus The Confessor

But in Ithaca he was not a stranger, he was one of their own, so it never occurred to anyone to say, 'Tell us!"

40. "Most inspirational writers were born as driftwood and will say they have been beaten against every shoreline during their life. We understand storms. We understand drowning. We understand being devalued. We understand being stranded alone on a beach. God made us this way so we would know where every lighthouse can be found and tell others how to find them. We were never meant to stand on the beach with you because every rescue we do rescues ourselves. We always go back to the sea because that is where driftwood belongs--forever searching for answers to our endless questions and sharing what we learned...(2012, Writer's Conference)"

Wurde? - Ich habe das "Ich glaube an ihn" nur bis in die letzten Tage des Hitlerreiches verfolgt. Ich habe jetzt Tag für Tag mit Rehabilitierten zu tun und solchen, die rehabilitiert sein wollen. Diesen Leute, so verschieden sie auch sonst untereinander sein mögen, ist eines gemeinsam: Sie behaupten alle, eine Sondergruppe der "Opfer des Faschismus" zu bilden, sie sind alle gegen ihre Überzeugung durch irgendwelche Gewaltanwendung zum Eintritt in die ihnen von jeher verhaßte gezwungen worden, sie haben nie an den Führer, nie an das Dritte Reich geglaubt."
