1. "Wenn Menschenherzen brechen und Menschenseelen verzweifeln, dann blicken aus dem Dämmerlicht der Vergangenheit die großen Überwinder von Not und Sorge, von Schmach und Elend, von geistiger Unfreiheit und körperlichem Zwange auf sie hernieder und reichen den verzagenden Sterblichen ihre ewigen Hände!Wehe dem Volke, das sich schämt, sie zu erfassen!"
Author: Adolf Hitler
2. "De prikkelende beelden waarmee de maatschappij ons voortdurend confronteert hebben geen enkel ander doel dan fantasieën in ons wakker te roepen waardoor ons denken wordt verhinderd, waardoor wij verdoofd door het leven sjokken als slaven van onze hormonen"
Author: Arnon Grunberg
3. "O gün kapkaranlik sokaklarda dolastim sokaklarda.Içimde, bu sölen sofrasina çikarip "bu da benden!" diye koyacak birsey yoktu.Renkli giysileri içinde güzel bacaklarini,muhallebi karinlarini,gögüslerini gösteren,saçlarindan isiltilar saçilan kizlar bende yalnizca ve yalnizca bir kesis olma istegi uyandiriyordu.Bu istek de öfkelendiriyordu beni.Insanin en temel meselelerinden birine, "Arzu etme aci çekersin!" kaypak bilgeligiyle karsilik verenlere,insanlari gömdükleri gibi meselelerini de gömebileceklerini düsünen kazma-kürek erbabina öfke duyuyordum."
Author: Baris Biçakçi
4. "Suddenly, Vin grew pale. Elend paused, glancing at her, sensing that something was wrong. Not with what he'd said, something else. What is it? Assassins? Mist spirits? Koloss?"I just realized something," Vin said, looking at him with those intense eyes of hers. "I can't go to a ball—I didn't bring a gown!"
Author: Brandon Sanderson
5. "Ham turned back, still smiling. "You make it sound so desperate, El."Elend looked over at him. "The Assembly is a mess, a half-dozen warlords with superior armies are breathing down my neck, barely a month passes without someone sending assassins to kill me, and the woman I love is slowly driving me insane."Vin snorted at this last part."Oh is that all?" Ham said. "See? It's not so bad after all. I mean, we could be facing an immortal god and his all-powerful priests instead."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
6. "Spook smiled. "Elend is a forgetful scholar - twice as bad as Sazed ever was. He gets lost in his books and forgets about meeting he himself called. He only dresses with any sense of fashion because a Terriswoman bought him a new wardrobe. War has change him some, but on the inside, I think he's still just a dreamer caught in a world with too much violence."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
7. "Breeze chuckled. "He was completely insane, you know. The worse things got, the more he'd joke. Iremember how chipper he was the very day after one of our worst defeats, when we lost most of ourskaa army to that fool Yeden. Kell walked in, a spring in his step, making one of his inane jokes.""Sounds insensitive," Allrianne said.Ham shook his head. "No. He was just determined. He always said that laughter was something theLord Ruler couldn't take from him. He planned and executed the overthrow of a thousand-yearempire—and he did it as a kind of . . . penance for letting his wife die thinking that he hated her. But, hedid it all with a smirk on his lips. Like every joke was his way of slapping fate in the face.""We need what he had," Elend said."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
8. "Well, then," he said. "Let's do it.""What?" Vin asked."Save the world." Elend said. "Stop the ash."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
9. "Somehow, she had grown into a woman in between the fall of kings and collapse of worlds. Once she had been terrified of change. Then she had been terrified of losing Elend. Now her fears were more nebulous - worries of what would come after she was gone, worries of what would happen to the people of the empire if she failed."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
10. "It's a mystery," Vin said, narrowing her eyes and smiling. "We Mistborn are incredibly mysterious." Elend paused." Um...I'm Mistborn too, Vin. That doesn't make any sense." "We Mistborn need not make sense," Vin said." It's beneath us. Come on-the sun's already down. We need to get moving."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
11. "The study's small ventilation window bumped open, and Vin squeezed through, pulling in a puff of mist behind her. She closed the window, then surveyed the room."More?" she asked incredulously. "You found more books?""Of course," Elend said."How many of those things have people written?" she asked with exasperation."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
12. "Elend: I kind of lost track of time…Breeze: For two hours?Elend: There were books involved."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
13. "Elend: "Each moment you fight is a gift to those in this cavern. Each second we fight is a second longer that thousands of people can draw breath. Each stroke of the sword, each koloss felled, each breath earned is another victory! It is a person protected for a moment longer, a life extended, an enemy frusturated!" There was a brief pause. "In the end they shall kill us. But first they shall fear us!"
Author: Brandon Sanderson
14. "Elend smiled. "Oh, come on. You have to admit that you're unusual, Vin. You're like some strange mixture of a noblewoman, a street urchin, and a cat. Plus, you've mangaged - in our short three years together - to kill not only my god, but my father, my brother, and my fiancée. That's kind of like a homicidal hat trick."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
15. "What if they take you captive?" Goradel asked."My dear man," Breeze said, leaning forward to look out at Goradel. "That's why kings send ambassadors. This way, if someone gets captured, the king is still safe. We, my friend, are something Elend can never be: expendable."Goradel frowned at that. "I don't feel very expendable."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
16. "Vin," he said flatly, "did you just suggest that we attend a ball being held in the middle of a city we're besieging?""You think it's a good idea," Vin said, smiling impishly."It's a crazy idea," Elend said. "I'm emperor—I shouldn't be sneaking into the enemy city so I can go to a party."Vin narrowed her eyes, staring at him."I will admit, however," Elend said, "that the concept does have considerable charm."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
17. "Because if I accept that Elend bears no guilt for what his people did to mine, then I must admit to being a monster for the things that I did to them."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
18. "Carthago delenda est"
Author: Cato
19. "Ates oglani sofralarina yaklastiginda Cüce Cafer neselendi.. boyundan beklenmeyecek kadar gür bir sesle haykirdi: "Gel hele sakiz adali; yak su atesi!"Oysa Pinhan içinden yalvarmaktaydi:"Sakin ola yaklasma. yakma bu atesi!"
Author: Elif Shafak
20. "Slechts één ding is blijvend, een nooit eindigende schoonheid, die van de ene vorm overgaat in de andere, vluchtig doorgebladerd, voortdurend wisselend, maar die je zeker niet voor altijd kunt vasthouden, in musea neerzetten en in noten vastleggen kunt, om dan jong en oud erbij te roepen, zodat ze erover kunnen zwetsen en druk doen."
Author: Georg Büchner
21. "I beheld the last combat on the slopes of Orodruin, where Gil-galad died, and Elendil fell, and Narsil broke beneath him; but Sauron himself was overthrown, and Isildur cut the Ring from his hand with the hilt-shard of his father's sword, and took it for his own."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
22. "The Sword of Elendil was forged anew by Elvish smiths, and on its blade was traced a device of seven stars set between the crescent Moon and rayed Sun, and about them was written many runes; for Aragorn son of Arathorn was going to war upon the marches of Mordor. Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
23. "Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Andúril shone like a sudden flame as he swept it out. 'Elendil!' he cried. 'I am Aragorn, son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil's son of Gondor. Here is the Sword that was Broken and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
24. "In all the days of the Third Age, after the fall of Gil-galad, Master Elrond abode in Imladris, and he gathered there many Elves, and other folk of wisdom and power from among all the kindreds of Middle-earth, and he preserved through many lives of Men the memory of all that had been fair; and the house of Elrond was a refuge for the weary and the oppressed, and a treasury of good counsel and wise lore. In that house were harboured the Heirs of Isildur, in childhood and old age, because of the kinship of their blood with Elrond himself, and because he knew in his wisdom that one should come of their line to whom a great part was appointed in the last deeds of that Age. And until that time came the shards of Elendil's sword were given into the keeping of Elrond, when the days of the Dúnedain darkened and they became a wandering people."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
25. "Een James Bond-boek is stom maar opwindend, terwijl een meesterwerk van de Vlaamse literatuur even stom maar daarbij ook nog vervelend is."
Author: Louis Paul Boon
26. "Hast du schon mal das Gefühl gehabt dass die Welt dich im Stich läst,den Eindruck dsas das Zimmer indem du dich befindest immer kleiner wird,die Überzeigung das deine Kleider über Nacht gealtert,dass dein Bild in jedem Spiegel dein Elend reflektiert & dass dir das Gefühl zu glauben das dich nichts und niemand liebt & das du nichts liebst & das dieses Nichts die Leere deiner Existenz ist?"
Author: Marc Levy
27. "Er zijn een paar veel belangrijkere dingetjes die je niet weet en het eerste is dat je nooit wordt wat je wil worden, onthou dat goed - het is vervelend om 't te beseffen, maar vroeg of laat moet je ermee leren leven, dus je kan 't maar beter meteen weten."
Author: Paolo Giordano
28. "Door intimiteit zijn we met elkaar verbonden en de onzichtbare banden zijn bevrijdende boeien. De verbondenheid is gebiedend: ze vereist exclusiviteit. Delen is verraden. Maar het is niet zo dat we slechts een enkele persoon mogen liefhebben, en aanraken. Wat te doen? Regie voeren over de verschillende intimiteiten? Een penibele boekhouding voeren over onderwerpen, woorden, gebaren? Over gedeelde kennis en over geheimen? Dat zou geruisloos druppelend gif zijn."
Author: Pascal Mercier
29. "Skoonheid is iets wonderliks en vreemds wat die kunstenaar al worstelend uit die chaos van die wereld haal."
Author: W. Somerset Maugham
