2. "She couldn't stop thinking about Elias. His hands caressing her feet, his arms around her body, his fingers entangled in her hair--he was so warm. It wasn't only the temperature, it was some deep connection that ran down to her soul, his touch mollifying the core of her. And his voice--it was no wonder the magic ceased when he spoke. It was so deep, but so level--not even the most kindhearted and loving women deserved to hear such a sexy sound come out of a man's mouth."

6. "So blieb [den individuellen Aufsteigern aus dem Arbeitermilieu] allein die Imitation der Verhaltensweisen und Ideologien von der mindestens heimlich bewunderten privilegierten Schicht, in die einzutreten schließlich Ziel des langen Weges war. Doch das Original mag den Nachahmer nicht, verhält sich bestenfalls gönnerhaft-spöttisch, von oben herab. Der Kopierende gibt sich alle erdenkliche Mühe, wird oft gar zum aggressiven Apologeten des Vorbildes, was – so Norbert Elias – »zu ganz spezifischen Verkrümmungen des Bewußtseins und der Haltung« führt. Der sozialdemokratische Kotau vor den Imperativen der Privatisierung, der finanzkapitalistischen Entgrenzungen, der Steuerbefreiung für Kapitalinvestoren in den Jahren 1999-2005 – er mag damit zu tun haben."
Author: Franz Walter
7. "Now,' Elias said, 'if only I didn't have to go home to my lousy wife. I married her in 1929. A lot of things've changed since 1929.' He sighed. 'What's a woman?' he asked. 'A Woman is a trap."

8. "Hietzingin eläintarhassa on vain yksi ruokkiperheen edustaja. Se on pienin ruokkilaji, jota kuvataan pienikokoiseksi ja nuivanaamaiseksi ja aika tyhmäksi; sen tiedetään vaeltaneen pitkin polkuja, missä sen päälle saatettiin heposti astua. Itse asiassa kuningasruokki oli niin typerä lintu, että se kuoli sukupuuttoon. Viimeinen isoruokki nähtiin elävänä vuonna 1844 ja viimeinen kuollut isoruokki huuhtoutui rantaan Trinity Bayssa Irlannissa vuonna 1853. Isoruokki oli tarinan mukaan sekä utelias että herttainen. Jos sitä lähestyi varovasti, se saattoi pysyä liikkumatta paikoillaan. Sitä pyydystettiin muonaksi kalastusaluksille: kalastajat vaanivat rannalla, lähestyivät äänettömästi ja nuijivat isoruokit hengiltä.Olipa mahtava juttu! Tarkoittaako se, että isoruokki kuoli sukupuuttoon omaa tyhmyyttään - vai että tyhmät ihmiset tappoivat sen sukupuuttoon?"
Author: John Irving

Author: Tate Hallaway
11. "An old man, Elias Caldwell, death already smothering his breast, tries to tell a child something of all he has learned, something of what he would have her live by – and hears only incoherent words come out. Yet the thoughts revolve, revolve and whirl, a scorching nebula in his breast, sending forth flaming suns that only shatter against the walls and return to chaos. How can it be said? Once I lived in softness and ease and sickened. Once I chose a stern life, turning to people hard, bitter and strong – obscure people, the smell of soil and sweat about them – the smell of life…But I failed. I brought them nothing. To die, how bitter when nothing was done with my life. And the nebula whirls and revolves, sending its scorching suns that break in a chaos of inarticulateness about this child with a sound of fear. Nothing of it said."
Author: Tillie Olsen
12. "Olafur Eliasson is also one of the most visionary artists I've ever met. He is from Denmark and Iceland, and his focus is nothing less than the entire universe."
Author: Victor Pinchuk

Today's Quote

Epicurus said you should live for pleasure - adding that nothing brings more pleasure than a little sun and a glass of water. It is on this principle that our conjugal existence has rested for three years, devoted to making love, reading, eating excellent meals, spending a few days in a nice hotel by the sea, visiting out friends (not very many, all without children), going to concerts and movies, sleeping, cultivating our garden."
Author: Benoît Duteurtre
