3. "You know, and so, I've come to this belief that, if you show me a woman who can sit with a man in real vulnerability, in deep fear, and be with him in it, I will show you a woman who, A, has done her work and, B, does not derive her power from that man. And if you show me a man who can sit with a woman in deep struggle and vulnerability and not try to fix it, but just hear her and be with her and hold space for it, I'll show you a guy who's done his work and a man who doesn't derive his power from controlling and fixing everything."
Author: Brené Brown
4. "Un escritor nunca olvida la primera vez que acepta unas monedas o un elogio a cambio de una historia. Nunca olvida la primera vez que siente el dulce veneno de la vanidad en la sangre y cree que, si consigue que nadie descubra su falta de talento, el sueño de la literatura será capaz de poner techo sobre su cabeza, un plato caliente al final del día y lo que más anhela: su nombre impreso en un miserable pedazo de papel que seguramente vivirá más que él. Un escritor está condenado a recordar ese momento, porque para entonces ya está perdido y su alma tiene precio."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

7. "I have grown weary of literature: silence alone comforts me. If I continue to write, it's because I have nothing more to accomplish in this world except to wait for death. Searching for the word in darkness. Any little success invades me and puts me in full view of everyone. I long to wallow in the mud. I can scarcely control my need for self-abasement, my craving for licentiousness and debauchery. Sin tempts me, forbidden pleasures lure me. I want to be both pig and hen, then kill them and drink their blood."
Author: Clarice Lispector

9. "Where am I, or what? From what causes do I derive my existence, and to what condition shall I return? ... I am confounded with all these questions, and begin to fancy myself in the most deplorable condition imaginable, environed with the deepest darkness, and utterly deprived of the use of every member and faculty.Most fortunately it happens, that since Reason is incapable of dispelling these clouds, Nature herself suffices to that purpose, and cures me of this philosophical melancholy and delirium, either by relaxing this bent of mind, or by some avocation, and lively impression of my senses, which obliterate all these chimeras. I dine, I play a game of backgammon, I converse, and am merry with my friends. And when, after three or four hours' amusement, I would return to these speculations, they appear so cold, and strained, and ridiculous, that I cannot find in my heart to enter into them any farther."
Author: David Hume
10. "With the continued support of citizens who refuse to accept inaction at the expense of future generations, we will lead the world toward a sustainable future."

12. "...why is it that, in creative writing courses today, the very first thing we teach students is write what you know? Perhaps that's not the right way to start at all. Imaginative literature is not necessarily about writing who we are or what we know or what our identity is about. We should teach young people and ourselves to expand our hearts and write what we can feel. We should get out of our cultural ghetto and go visit the next one and the next."
Author: Elif Shafak

16. "The people come from everywhere, from five hundred miles, to find their fortunes. By fortune is an ugly, two-faced goddess.

You cease to marvel at just how much evil man con conjure by existing."
Author: Glen Cook
17. "Chovia bastante naquela manhã. A luz tinha um tom acinzentado e musguento devido às nuvens baixas. Teve de admitir que a menina não era um cadáver. Estava viva. Talvez tivesse nascido gelada, mas agora estava viva. Ainda suja com o sangue do nascimento e o início aguado das suas fezes, Liir levou-a até à porta e ergue-a para a chuva. Lavada, revelou-se verde."
Author: Gregory Maguire
18. "The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong. All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them. The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. His culture is based on - I am not too sure."

27. "El mundo ha sido siempre así desde la aparición de la vida. Las criaturas nacen y mueren. Ninguna criatura puede sobrevivir sin alimentarse de otra, directa o indirectamente. Para que las criaturas existan, otras tienen que morir. Nosotros estamos en el mundo para que las criaturas vivan. Los demonios están en el mundo para que las criaturas mueran. Si los ángeles no existiésemos, nuestro planeta acabaría por convertirse en un mundo muerto. Si los demonios no existiesen, las criaturas crecerían y se reproducirían sin control, el planeta no podría sustentarlas a todas. Somos los dos extremos de la balanza. La existencia de unos y otros garantiza el equilibrio del mundo."

29. "And though he continued never to express a single word of love for me, not in any way of his several languages, I could not take a hint. Let the hint be written across the heavens in skywriting done by several planes - I was dense. Even skywriting, well, it wasn't always certain: it might not cover the whole entire sky, or some breeze might smudge it, so who could really say for sure what it said? Even skywriting wouldn't have worked! Several years later, I would wonder why I had thought my feelings for this man were anything but a raw, thrilling, vigilant infatuation. But I still had called them love. I was in love. I had learned the Portuguese and the Arabic for love, but all for naught."
Author: Lorrie Moore
30. "Opera is a beautiful and important diversion for me."
Author: Luciano Pavarotti

It's. . . like a puppy that gets locked in the laundry room all day.""Should I get her a treat?" he asked."Hey," Alexa said, her tone defensive. "Is the treat bacon?""Milk-Bone," he said."Then I'll pass and head to bed." She looped her arm through Kelsey's, and they turned, steppingoff the porch."

37. "Even if we act to erase material poverty, there is another greater task; it is to confront the poverty of satisfaction – purpose and dignity – that afflicts us all. Too much and for too long, we seemed to have surrendered personal excellence and community values in the mere accumulation of material things. Our Gross National Product, now, is over $800 billion a year, but that Gross National Product … counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage. It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for the people who break them. It counts..."
Author: Nic Marks

39. "For a brief period of time the American electric-sign industry looked beyond its most immediate market and collaborated with store designers and architects in creating a style which became known as 'stream-line.'

Author: Piper Kerman
42. "Love is a commitment that will be tested in the most vulnerable areas of spirituality, a commitment that will force you to make some very difficult choices. It is a commitment that demands that you deal with your lust, your greed, your pride, your power, your desire to control, your temper, your patience, and every area of temptation that the Bible clearly talks about. It demands the quality of commitment that Jesus demonstrates in His relationship to us."
Author: Ravi Zacharias

44. "Ahora pienso con nostalgia en lo extrañas que son las reglas del amor. Varios hombres apuestos se enamoraron de mí. No obstante, ninguno de mis amigos logró conmover mis sentimientos. Y en cambio, un mocoso de baja condición, que pertenecía a la casa de cierto noble y que debería haberme disgustado, empleaba un estilo que, desde su primera carta, me habría empujado a sacrificar mi vida por él. Me escribía a menudo y quedé completamente seducida. Un buen día empecé a amarle y se acabó mi tranquilidad"."

Author: Vergílio Ferreira
49. "Sigmund Freud once asserted, "Let one attempt to expose a number of the most diverse people uniformly to hunger. With the increase of the imperative urge of hunger all individual differences will blur, and in their stead will appear the uniform expression of the one unstilled urge." Thank heaven, Sigmund Freud was spared knowing the concentration camps from the inside. His subjects lay on a couch designed in the plush style of Victorian culture, not in the filth of Auschwitz. There, the "individual differences" did not "blur" but, on the contrary, people became more different; people unmasked themselves, both the swine and the saints."
Author: Viktor E. Frankl
50. "In progressive societies the concentration[of wealth] may reach a point where the strength of number in the many poor rivals the strength of ability in the few rich; then the unstable equilibrium generates a critical situation, which history has diversely met by legislation redistributing wealth or by revolution distributing poverty."
Author: Will Durant
