Author: Alex Karpovsky
2. "?...minun mielestäni nykyinen teatteri vain pelkkää rutiinia, ennakkoluuloa. Kun esirippu nousee ja nuo suuret kyvyt, pyhän taiteen papit ja papittaret, esittävät kolmiseinäisessä huoneessa iltavalaistuksessa miten ihmiset syövät, juovat, rakastavat, kävelevät, miten kantavat pukuaan, kun he halpahintaisista kuvaelmista ja korulauseista koettavat onkia esiin moraalia — pientä, helppotajuista, kotioloissa tarvittavaa moraalia, kun minulle tuhansien eri muunnosten muodossa tarjotaan aina vain yhtä ja samaa, yhtä ja samaa, yhtä ja samaa — niin minä juoksen pakoon, juoksen pakoon kuin Maupassant Eiffel-tornia, joka pusersi hänen aivojaan lattaudellaan."
Author: Anton Chekhov
3. "And what is sin?' said Cotgrave.'I think I must reply to your question by another. What would your feelings be, seriously, if your cat or your dog began to talk to you, and to dispute with you in human accents? You would be overwhelmed with horror. I am sure of it. And if the roses in your garden sang a weird song, you would go mad. And suppose the stones in the road began to swell and grow before your eyes, and if the pebble that you noticed at night had shot out stony blossoms in the morning?'Well, these examples may give you some notion of what sin really is."
Author: Arthur Machen
4. "Ada di dunia ini yang merupakan teka-teki, ada yang merupakan misteri. Dan beda keduanya adalah ini: teka-teki adalah rahasia yang jawabannya tetap dan pasti. Tetapi misteri adalah rahasia yang jawabannya tak pernah kita tahu adakah ia tetap dan pasti. Sesuatu samar-samar menampakkan diri, tapi kita tak akan pernah bisa memegangnya. Misteri menjelmakan suasana kepedihan dan harapan. Dan suasana itu, anehnya, indah."
Author: Ayu Utami
5. "In that house I builta bonfire that illuminatedthe fecund earth around it.And in that split-levelmy friend Tommy, only eightteeth left in his whole head,dug a huge illegal graveto bury his father's packhorse.He marched that sumpterinto the dark study and shot its head on the leftso it would fall right.That night, as if to arguewith the day,Karen and I made loveon the front lawn of the mansionone cul-de-sac down,four feet awayfrom what would bea window crackedopen to allow the outsidein."
Author: B.J. Ward
6. "Yelling a battle cry—more to motivate himself than frighten his foes—Lukel grabbed the table leg and swung it at a soldier. The wood bounced off the man's helmet, but the blow was powerful enough to daze him, so Lukel followed it with a solid blow to the face. The soldier dropped and Lukel grabbed his weapon.Now he had a sword. He only wished he knew how to use it."
Author: Brandon Sanderson

Author: Bree Despain
8. "Whether we're overcoming adversity, surviving trauma, or dealing with stress and anxiety, having a sense of purpose, meaning, and perspective in our lives allows us to develop understanding and move forward. Without purpose, meaning, and perspective, it is easy to lose hope, numb our emotions, or become overwhelmed by our circumstances. We feel reduced, less capable, and lost in the face of struggle. The heart of spirituality is connection. When we believe in that inextricable connection, we don't feel alone."
Author: Brené Brown
9. "A háborúnak nincs emlékezete, mivel senkinek sincs bátorsága ahhoz, hogy megértse, mi is történt valójában; aztán egyszer csak nem marad szemtanú, aki elmesélhetné; eljön a pillanat, amikor már senki sem emlékszik, s akkor kezdodik elölrol az egész, új arccal, új néven, és azt is felfalja, amit maga után hagyott."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
10. "A férfi olyan hamar felmelegszik, mint a villanykörte: egy pillanat alatt tuzbe jön, s ugyanilyen hamar ki is hul. Ellenben a no - s ez tudományosan bizonyított tény - úgy melegszik fel, mint a vasaló. Lassan, fokozatosan forr fel, mint a jó húsleves. De ha egyszer átforrósodott, nincs, aki lehutse."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
11. "I think, actually I know that it's overwhelmingly possible for men to conduct such atrocities as to kill a man in cold blood, to burn towns and to parade with the the dead on the tips of their swords. People who think they are doing something for the good of all are the most dangerous and stirs their intent deeper. There might have been a time when I thought differently and I would have answered with a quick no but that time had long passed. Do I think it's in human nature to be violent and to succumb to it? Sure I do. It's to justify it, that I think is inhuman."
Author: Celia Mcmahon
12. "Down the street, the trees are imprisoned equidistantly in square plots of dirt. Everything else is concrete. Lourdes remembers reading somewhere about how Dutch elm disease wiped out the entire species on the East Coast except for a lone tree in Manhattan surrounded by concrete. Is this, she wonders, how we'll all survive?"
Author: Cristina García

Jim and I waited, very quietly, to hear what she would say to them. She said the right thing, always. She looked at the three tall firemen in their shining helmets, standing among the smoke and cinders and dissolving snowballs, and she said, "Would you like anything to read?"
Author: Dylan Thomas
15. "Meanwhile Canon Leigh in his study did not know what on earth he ought to do; and when he remembered that he had four daughters who each of them might have five love affairs, making twenty all told, before he got them safely steered into the harbor of matrimony--though even then there might be upsets in the harbor--he came out in a cold sweat. He spent a bad night and in the cold light of dawn sat down and penned a note to Mistress Flowerdew, asking that he might wait upon her and receive her inestimable advice upon a matter of overwhelming importance."
Author: Elizabeth Goudge

Author: Elizabeth Scott
17. "Különben ne kicsinyeld le azt az érzést, hogy szeretsz valakit. Kevés emberrel esett meg az a szerencse, hogy megszeretett valakit. Te eddig nem ismerted a szerelmet, most meg az öledbe hullt. Mindegy, hogy holnapig vagy holnaputánig, vagy életed végéig tart ez az érzés Maríával, mindenképp a legnagyobb dolog, ami az emberrel történhetik. Mindig lesznek emberek, akik azt hiszik, hogy nincs szerelem, mert ok nem ismerték meg."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
18. "There were in this strange nature, depths so awful and profound that it was not to be sounded or to be judged as others were. But one thing could have melted or caused the unconquerable spirit to bend, and this was the overwhelming passion of love--not a slight, tender feeling, but a great and powerful one, such as could be awakened but by a being of as strong and deep a nature as itself, one who was in all things its peer."
Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett

Author: George R.R. Martin
22. "I know love is dark work; you have to get your hands dirty. If you hold back, nothing interesting happens. At the same time, you have to find the right distance between people. Too close, and they overwhelm you; too far and they abandon you. How to hold them in the right relation?"
Author: Hanif Kureishi
23. "I had been watching 'Home and Away' for quite a while, so joining the cast was quite weird. The show is so fast-paced, and at first it was overwhelming, but at the same time was quite laid back."
Author: Indiana Evans
24. "Malina'yla iliskim yillar boyu sonuç vermeyen karsilasmalardan, düsünülebilecek en büyük yanlis anlamalardan ve birkaç budalaca düsten ibaret kaldi - yani baska insanlarla aramda olanlardan çok daha büyük yanlis anlamalar, demek istedigim. Ama su da var ki, daha baslangiçtan onun egemenligi altina girmistim; benim felaketin olacagini, Malina'nin yerinin, o daha hayatima girmezden önce Malina tarafindan alindigini erken anlamis olmaliyim. Esirgendigim tek sey, onunla çok erken bir araya gelmekti, ya da ben kendimi bundan korudum."

"All right, I'll tackle Strider at the camp-fire: he's less testy. But why all this secrecy? I though we'd won the battle!"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
28. "We instinctively feel an overwhelming desire to take sides: organic or conventional, fair or free trade, "pure" or genetically engineered food, wild or farm-raised fish. Like most things in life, though, the sensible answer lies somewhere between the extremes, somewhere in that dull but respectable placed called the pragmatic center. To be a centrist when it comes to food is, unfortunately, to be a radical."
Author: James McWilliams

30. "A gyerekek rengeteg örömmel járnak, meg minden, ahogy mondani szokták, de nagy szívfájdalommal is, folyton-folyvást, és attól tartok, ez akkor sincs másképp, ha felnonek; de ezt már nem szokták mondani. Látjuk, hogy bizonytalanok valamiben, és ez fáj. Látjuk bennük a jó szándékot, hogy segíteni akarnak, és ki akarják venni a részüket valamibol, de nem tehetik, és ez is fáj. Fáj a derujük, az egyszeru kis tréfáik és az átlátszó hazugságaik, a csalódásaik és az illúzióik, a reményeik és az apró baklövéseik, az ártatlanságuk, az értetlenségük, a tiszta, logikus kérdéseik, sot még az esetleges rossz gondolataik is. Fáj, ha belegondolunk, mennyit kell még tanulniuk, hogy milyen hosszú út áll még elottük, amit senki nem taposhat ki helyettük, még ha évszázadok óta ezt tesszük is, mert értelmetlennek véljük, hogy mindenkinek a nulláról kelljen kezdenie. Ugyan mi értelme mindenkinek ugyanazokon a kellemetlenségeken és felismeréseken átesnie, örökkön-örökké?"
Author: Javier Marías
31. "I want to fulfill myself in one of the rarest of destinies. I have only a dim notion of what it ?will be. I want it to have not a graceful curve slightly bent toward evening but a hitherto unseen beauty ?lovely because of the danger which works away at it overwhelms it undermines it. Oh let me be only utter? beauty I shall go quickly or slowly but I shall dare what must be dared. I shall destroy appearances the ?casings will burn away and one evening I shall appear there in the palm of your hand quiet and pure like a? glass statuette. You will see me. Round about me there will be nothing left."
Author: Jean Genet
32. "I've wanted you from the moment we met, and if you think sitting next to me in your bra doesn't overwhelm me with desire, you're very wrong. I just don't force myself where I'm not invited. (Bones)"
Author: Jeaniene Frost
33. "Men and women in my lifetime have died fighting for the right to vote: people like James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, who were murdered while registering black voters in Mississippi in 1964, and Viola Liuzzo, who was murdered by the Ku Klux Klan in 1965 during the Selma march for voting rights."
Author: Jeff Greenfield

Author: Jerry Bridges
36. "The way I figure it, everyone gets a miracle. Like, I will probably never be struck by lightening, or win a Nobel Prize, or become the dictator of a small nation in the Pacific Islands, or contract terminal ear cancer, or spontaneously combust. But if you consider all the unlikely things together, at least one of them will probably happen to each of us. I could have seen it rain frogs. I could have stepped foot on Mars. I could have been eaten by a whale. I could have married the Queen of England or survived months at sea. But my miracle was different. My miracle was this: out of all the houses in all the subdivisions in all of Florida, I ended up living next door to Margo Roth Spiegelman."
Author: John Green
37. "Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I never leave the house without [my Santa hat]. In fact, I pretty much never leave my room without it. I honestly don't know how this habit started and believe me, I'd break myself of it if I could, but I'm a little bit OCD about the Santa hat. Whenever I try to put it away, I get this horrible, overwhelming feeling that somehow Christmas will be destroyed if I do."
Author: Kieran Scott
38. "Böyle iste, diyordu. Dostumuz Konstantin Dmitriç ne yetenekli bir gençti. Oysa simdi nerede o eski Konstantin Dmitriç! O zamanlar bilimi de severdi. Üniversiteden çiktiginda insanlara özgü düsünceleri vardi. Simdi ise yeteneklerinin yarisi kendi kendini aldatmaya, öteki yarisi da bu aldatisi hakli göstermeye yönelmis durumda. iletisim yayinlari. syf :441."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
39. "And your neihjbour is sitting next door weeping as she watches her child facing a crowd of Palestiniankids armed with rocks which could take your boy's eye out or give him brain damage if god forbids he took off his helmet one of those dusty stones hit him in the head"
Author: Linda Grant
40. "I have no place in my life for someone who is sure he can do everything.--Steelmind"
Author: Mercedes Lackey
41. "It is both the greatest power and potentially the greatest weakness of the hero to love and care and strive beyond reason. The hero is the one who turns back and waits for their injured friend knowing the hordes of the enemy are close on their heals, the one who stands alone on the bridge barring the progress of an overwhelming foe in order to allow their companions time to escape, the one who refuses to take one innocent life as a means to saving thousands. The hero is the one who returns to an alien infested space ship, set to self-destruct in minutes, to save the cat."
Author: Mike Alsford
42. "Loving Sarah was like reading a particularly good book. That pressing and overwhelming need to just devour it as fast as possible is matched only by the need to savour it slowly and completely, lest all come to an end too soon. The all-consuming emotions are so many and varied that it is almost impossible to pick out one for a few minutes attention. They mainly stay jumbled and unattended, and for the most part not entirely understood or satisfied. But then, maybe it is in the understanding of our love for someone that the love itself disappears altogether. If so, then I don't want to understand, and I remain content to simply experience her. Somehow, the more I learn about Sarah, the better I understand myself.And the more I fall in love."
Author: Nadine Rose Larter
43. "I always get so overwhelmed trying to do everything perfectly. I can't do a job and not put everything I have into it. I need to be the best employee, the best co-worker, the best whatever. I need everyone to like me and I just burn out bending over backward to make that happen. Having people be mad at me is my worst fear. I can't stand it. There is this crazy fear I have of being rejected by anyone - even people I don't really care about. It's always better to leave them first, cut all ties, and disappear. They can't hurt me that way - no one can."
Author: Nic Sheff
44. "I loved teaching. It was my world. I only left because I was overwhelmed with three careers - teaching, writing, and my family."
Author: Patricia Reilly Giff
45. "[On Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz]The answer is unknowable, but it may not be unreasonable to see him, at least in theological terms, as essentially a deist. He is a determinist: there are no miracles (the events so called being merely instances of infrequently occurring natural laws); Christ has no real role in the system; we live forever, and hence we carry on after our deaths, but then everything — every individual substance — carries on forever."
Author: Peter Loptson
46. "Gelmesinden baska sifam yoktur. Gelmezse, yeryüzünde hiç bir güzel canli ve enteresan seyin beni oyalayamayacagini düsünmenin verdigi bir ümitsizlik desheti içinde yerime oturur, gözlerimi buzlu camlarin yari karanlik zemininde oynayan kaderin pariltilarina dikerim."
Author: Peyami Safa
47. "It is possible to conceive, Anselm said, of a being than which nothing greater can be conceived. Even an atheist can conceive of such a superlative being, though he would deny its existence in the real world. But, goes the argument, a being that doesn't exist in the real world is, by that very fact, less than perfect. Therefore we have a contradiction and, hey presto, God exists!"
Author: Richard Dawkins
48. "Damals war der Ruf des Detektivs William A. Pinkerton und seines Auskunftsbüros sehr bedeutend. Der Mann war durch eine Reihe von Wechselfällen aus Armut zu hohem Ansehen in seinem sonderbaren und für manche Leute widerwärtigen Beruf emporgestiegen, aber für alle, die solche an sich unglücklichen Dienste benötigen, war seine wohlbekannte und patriotische Rolle im Bürgerkrieg und um Abraham Lincolns Person eine Empfehlung. Er oder vielmehr seine Organisation hatte diesen während der ganzen Dauer seiner stürmischen Amtszeit im Regierungspalast geschützt. Seine Firma hatte Niederlassungen in Philadelphia, Washington und New York, um nur die bedeutendsten Orte zu nennen."
Author: Theodore Dreiser
49. "At my urgent request the Curie laboratory, in which radium was discovered a short time ago, was shown to me. The Curies themselves were away travelling. It was a cross between a stable and a potato-cellar, and, if I had not seen the worktable with the chemical apparatus, I would have thought it a practical joke.(Wilhelm Ostwald on seeing the Curie's laboratory facilities.)"
Author: Wilhelm, Ostwald
50. "They accepted the pleasures of morning, the bright sun, the whelming sea and sweet air, as a time when play was good and life so full that hope was not necessary and therefore forgotten."
Author: William Golding
