1. "It would no doubt be very sentimental to argue - but I would argue it nevertheless - that the peculiar combination of joy and sadness in bell music - both of clock chimes, and of change-ringing - is very typical of England. It is of a piece with the irony in which English people habitually address one another."
Author: A. N. Wilson
2. "Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death."
Author: Anais Nin
3. "Dangerous and indifferent ground: against its fixed mass the tragedies of people count for nothing although the signs of misadventure are everywhere. No past slaughter nor cruelty, no accident nor murder that occurs on the little ranches or at the isolate crossroads with their bare populations of three or seventeen, or in the reckless trailer courts of mining towns delays the flood of morning light. Fences, cattle, roads, refineries, mines, gravel pits, traffic lights, graffiti'd celebration of athletic victory on bridge overpass, crust of blood on the Wal-Mart loading dock, the sun-faded wreaths of plastic flowers marking death on the highway are ephemeral. Other cultures have camped here a while and disappeared. Only earth and sky matter. Only the endlessly repeated flood of morning light. You begin to see that God does not owe us much beyond that."
Author: Annie Proulx
4. "A very, terribly long time ago, before such things as televisionand good table manners or evenchildren, ferocious monstersroamed a younger, angrier world."

Author: C.N. Faust
6. "It is not for nothing that you are named Ransom," said the Voice...The whole distinction between things accidental and things designed, like the distinction between fact and myth, was purely terrestrial. The pattern is so large that within the little frame of earthly experience there appear pieces of it between which we can see no connection, and other pieces between which we can. Hence we rightly, for our sue, distinguish the accidental from the essential. But step outside that frame and the distinction drops down into the void, fluttering useless wings. He had been forced out of the frame, caught up into the larger pattern… "My name also is Ransom," said the Voice."
Author: C.S. Lewis
7. "Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose."
Author: Charles Eames
8. "Youth is impulsive. When our young men grow angry at some real or imaginary wrong, and disfigure their faces with black paint, it denotes that their hearts are black, and that they are often cruel and relentless, and our old men and old women are unable to restrain them. Thus it has ever been."
Author: Chief Seattle
9. "I understand in retrospect that this was my first introduction to a conflict that dominates all our lives: the endless, irreconcilable conflict between the values of Athens and Jerusalem. On the one hand, very approximately, is the world not of hedonism but of tolerance of the recognition that sex and love have their ironic and perverse dimensions. On the other is the stone-faced demand for continence, sacrifice, and conformity, and the devising of ever-crueler punishments for deviance, all invoked as if this very fanaticism did not give its whole game away."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
10. "Some days he wishes that he could simply empty the chambers of the men, fill the halls instead with women: the short sharp shock of three thousand two hundred mothers. The ones who picked through the supermarket debris for pieces of their dead husbands. The ones who still laundered their gone son's bed sheets by hand. The ones who kept an extra teacup at the end of the table, in case of miracles. The elegant ones, the angry ones, the clever ones, the ones in hairnets, the ones exhausted by all the dying. They carried their sorrow--not with photos under their arms, or with public wailing, or by beating their chests, but with a weariness around the eyes."
Author: Colum McCann
11. "If I eat mindlessly while watching television, reading, or talking with someone else, I can go through an entire meal without tasting the food, without even noticing that I've been eating. The plate is empty but I didn't enjoy the food - I had all of the calories and little of the pleasure."
Author: Dean Ornish
12. "This person had arrived, he had illuminated her, he had ensorcelled her with notions of miracle and beauty, he had both understood and misunderstood her, he had married her, he had broken her heart, he had looked upon her with those sad and hopeless eyes, he had accepted his banishment, and now he was gone. What a stark and stunning thing was life- that such a cataclysm can enter and depart so quickly, and leave such wreckage behind!"
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
13. "Joram Kiango ni mpelelezi maarufu nchini Tanzania. Willy Gamba ni mpelelezi maarufu katika bara la Afrika. John Murphy ni mpelelezi maarufu duniani. Ni watu watatu tofauti wanaofanya kazi zinazofanana."
Author: Enock Maregesi
14. "Ah, where in the world have there been greater follies than with the pitiful? And what in the world hath caused more suffering than the follies of the pitiful?Woe unto all loving ones who have not an elevation which is above their pity!Thus spake the devil unto me, once on a time: "Even God hath his hell: it is his love for man." And lately, did I hear him say these words: "God is dead: of his pity for man hath God died."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
15. "Throgh me men gon into that blysful placeOf hertes hele and dedly woundes cure;Thorgh me men gon unto the welle of grace,There grene and lusty May shal evere endure.This is the wey to al good aventure.Be glad, thow redere, and thy sorwe of-caste;Al open am I - passe in, and sped thee faste!''Thorgh me men gon,' than spak that other side,'Unto the mortal strokes of the spereOf which Disdayn and Daunger is the gyde,There nevere tre shal fruyt ne leves bere.This strem yow ledeth to the sorweful wereThere as the fish in prisoun is al drye;The'eschewing is only the remedye!"
Author: Geoffrey Chaucer

17. "Certain things you learn through exposure. It's really the elements which make up any artist. You really learn by example. You learn by influence. And some people have a huge impact on you, and that's how you become the artist you are."
Author: Greg Lake
18. "Voice-cry. Agony--the spoken "word" exploded, blown to bits by suffering and anger, demolishing discourse: this is how she has always been heard before, ever since the time when masculine society began to push her offstage, expulsing her, plundering her. Ever since Medea, ever since Electra."
Author: Hélène Cixous
19. "I was born the 26th of December. . . Arrive by dint of perseverance, but step by step. . . Tenancy to exaggerate the importance of earthly life. Avaricious of self. Constant in their affections and their hatreds. . . Yes, the Capricorn is a beast of solitude. Slow, steady, and persevering. Lives on several levels at once. Thinks in circles. Fascinated by death. Ever climbing, climbing. In search of the edelweiss, presumably. Or could it be immortelle? Knows no mother. Only "the mothers". Laughs little and usually on the wrong side of the face. . . Speaks truthfully instead of kindly. Metaphysics, abstractions, electromagnetic displays. Dives to the depths. Sees stars, comets, and asteroids where others see only moles, warts, and pimples. Feeds on himself when tired of playing the man-eating shark. A paranoiac. An ambulatory paranoiac. But constant in his affections - and his hatreds. Ouais!"
Author: Henry Miller
20. "The sea had jeeringly kept his finite body up, but drowned the infinite of his soul. Not drowned entirely, though. Rather carried down alive to wondrous depths, where strange shapes of the unwarped primal world glided to and fro before his passive eyes; and the miser-merman, Wisdom, revealed his hoarded heaps; and among the joyous, heartless, ever-juvenile eternities, Pip saw the multitudinous, God-omnipresent, coral insects, that out of the firmament of waters heaved the colossal orbs. He saw God's foot upon the treadle of the loom, and spoke it; and therefore his shipmates called him mad. So man's insanity is heaven's sense; and wandering from all mortal reason, man comes at last to that celestial thought, which, to reason, is absurd and frantic; and weal or woe, feels then uncompromised, indifferent as his God."
Author: Herman Melville
21. "Novels without female characters were a lifeless desert."
Author: Ian McEwan
22. "Bir ölüyüm ben, dolasip duranArtik hiçbir yerde kaydim yok.Bilinmiyorum mülki amirin görev yerinde.Sayi fazlasiyim altin kentlerde.Ve yeseren tasra yörelerinde...Vazgeçilmisim çoktan,ve hiçbir seyle animsanmamisim.Yalnizca rüzgarla ve zamanla ve sesle,ben insanlar arasinda yasayamayan..."
Author: Ingeborg Bachmann

Author: Margaret Atwood

47. "... no tuvieron que hacer ningún `pacto de amistad´, como suelen los muchachos de su edad, cuando organizan solemnes ritos ridículos, llenos de pasión exagerada, al aparecer la primera pasión en ellos- de una forma inconsciente y desfigurada-, al pretender por primera vez apropiarse del cuerpo y del alma del otro, sacándole del mundo para poseerlo en exclusiva. Esto y sólo esto es el sentido del amor y de la amistad. La amistad entre los dos muchachos era tan seria y tan callada como cualquier sentimiento importante que dura toda una vida. Y como todos los sentimientos grandiosos, también contenía elementos de pudor y de culpa. Uno no puede apropiarse de una persona y alejarla de todos los demás sin tener remordimientos.Ellos supieron, desde el primer momento, que su encuentro prevalecería durante toda su vida."
Author: Sándor Márai

49. "Here he was holding the clear proof of the existence of other skies, but at the same time without having to ascend beyond the celestial spheres, for he intuited many worlds in a piece of coral. Was there any need to calculate the number of forms which the atoms of the Universe could create--burning at the stake all those who said their number was not finite--when it sufficed to meditate for years on one of these marine objects to realize how the deviation of a single atom, whether willed by God or prompted by Chance, could generate inconceivable Milky Ways?"
Author: Umberto Eco
50. "I paid the cabman exactly his fare. He received it with an oath; upon which I instantly gave him a tract. If I had presented a pistol at his head, this abandoned wretch could hardly have exhibited greater consternation. He jumped up on his box, and, with profane exclamations of dismay, drove off furiously. Quite useless, I am happy to say! I sowed the good seed, in spite of him, by throwing a second tract in at the window of the cab."
Author: Wilkie Collins
