Why did humans have such a hard time understanding that?"

"I never told you not to."McNaught lifted the curtain and peered out the window, letting in the pale light of dawn. He settled back on the seat. "At least there's decent inns in Carlisle." Frowning, he said, "I wish you'd told me, my Lord. I'd have packed a change of clothes.""We're not staying the night.""But we'll be the entire day on the road. Dr. Fansher would never approve of this.""With Andrew's horses, I expect we'll make good time."McNaught shook his head.

8. "I was feeling everything much too much. Everything was pulling at my eyes. I spent hours floating in pools. I sat on terraces and stared for afternoons at mediocre views.

I was blindsided by familiar things."
Author: Dave Eggers
9. "Yes, the saint was underrated quite a bit, then, mostly by people who didn't like things that were ineffable……a lot of people don't like things that are unearthly, the things of this earth are good enough for them, and they don't mind telling you so. "If he'd just go out and get a job, like everybody else, then he could be saintly all day long…" —from "The Temptations of St. Anthony," by Donald Barthelme"
Author: Donald Barthelme
10. "Versatility is one of the few human traits which are universally intolerable. You may be good at Greek and good at painting and be popular. You may be good at Greek and good at sport, and be wildly popular. But try all three and you're a mountebank. Nothing arouses suspicion quicker than genuine, all-round proficiency." Kate thought. "It needs an extra gift for human relationships, of course; but that can be developed. It's got to be, because stultified talent is surely the ultimate crime against mankind. Tell your paragons to develop it: with all those gifts it's only right they should have one hurdle to cross." "But that kind of thing needs co-operation from the other side," said Lymond pleasantly. "No. Like Paris, they have three choices." And he struck a gently derisive chord between each. "To be accomplished but ingratiating. To be accomplished but resented. Or to hide behind the more outré of their pursuits and be considered erratic but harmless."
Author: Dorothy Dunnett

Author: Edgar Rice Burroughs
12. "«Così tutta la mia vita, e quella di coloro nelle cui vene scorrerà il mio sangue, verrà consacrata alla scoperta e alla vigilanza del Potere naturale di cui il mondo è colmo. Non ci sarà uomo o donna che impedirà ai miei discendenti di seguire le mie orme, poiché verranno aiutati dal cielo e dalla terra e da tutto quello che li forma.»"
Author: Elisabeth Gravestone
13. "Que comience el cuento de hadas una mañana de invierno, en tal caso, con una gota recién caída en la nieve marfileña: una gota tan brillante como un rubí bien cortado, roja como una solitaria mancha de clarete en un puño de encaje. Y lo que aquí se sigue, por consiguiente, es que el mal acecha detrás de cada ventana rota, maquinando malicia y encantamiento; mientras que detrás de los postigos cerrados los justos duermen sus sueños a esta temprana hora en la Ribera. Pronto despertarán para ocuparse de sus quehaceres; y uno, tal vez, será tan adorable como el día y estará armado, como lo están los justos, para enfrentarse a un triunfo predestinado..."
Author: Ellen Kushner
14. "Todos vosotros conocéis la profunda melancolía que nos sobrecoge al recordar los tiempos felices. Esos tiempos que se han alejado para no volver más y de los cuales estamos más implacablemente separados que por cualquier distancia. Y las imágenes de la vida son más seductoras todavía vistas en el reflejo que nos dejan, y pensamos en ellas como en el cuerpo de una amada difunta que reposara bajo tierra y que de pronto se nos apareciera, como un luminoso espejismo..."
Author: Ernst Jünger
15. "It was a heavenly summer, the summer in which France fell and the British Expeditionary Force was evacuated from Dunkirk. Leaves were never such an intense and iridescent green; sunlight glinted on flower-studded meadows as the Germans encircled the Maginot Line and overran not only France but Belgium and Holland. Birdsong filled the air in the lull between bursts of gunfire and accompanied the fleeing refugees who blocked the roads. It was as though the weather was preparing a glorious requiem for the death of Europe."
Author: Eva Ibbotson
16. "Inch by inch I conquered the inner terrain I was born with. Bit by bit I reclaimed the swamp in which I'd languished. I gave birth to my infinite being, but I had to wrench myself out of me with forceps."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
17. "Strong passions are the precious raw material of sanctity. Individuals that have carried their sinning to extremes should not despair or say, "I am too great a sinner to change," or "God would not want me." God will take anyone who is willing to love, not with an occasional gesture, but with a "passionless passion," a "wild tranquility." A sinner, unrepentant, cannot love God, any more that a man on dry land can swim; but as soon as he takes his errant energies to God and asks for their redirection, he will become happy, as he was never happy before. It is not the wrong things one has already done which keep one from God; it is the present persistence in that wrong."
Author: Fulton J. Sheen

19. "I doobt the fau't's nae sae muckle i' my temper as i' my hert. It's mair love that I want, Tibbie. Gin I lo'ed my neebor as mysel', I cudna be sae ill-natert till him; though 'deed, whiles, I'm angry eneuch at mysel' — a hantle waur nor at him." "Verra true, Thamas," answered Tibbie. "Perfect love casteth oot fear, 'cause there's nae room for the twa o' them; and I daursay it wad be the same wi' the temper."
Author: George MacDonald
20. "Esta cartera no era una cartera, este monedero no era un monedero, las flores no eran flores, los abanicos no eran abanicos, todo era material plástico del amor, de la magia, de la provocación. Todo se convertía en mensajero, en negociador secreto, en arma y grito de guerra."
Author: Hermann Hesse
21. "I will kill him.""Erra's eyebrows rose. "You'd have to go through me first."I shrugged. "I have to do something for a warm-up."She laughed softly. "That's the spirit. I do think you might be my favorite niece."
Author: Ilona Andrews
22. "The places I come from have such rich languages, such a variety of expression. In Sierra Leone we have about fifteen languages and three dialects. I grew up speaking about seven of them."
Author: Ishmael Beah
23. "The Road goes ever on and onDown from the door where it began.Now far ahead the Road has gone,And I must follow, if I can,Pursuing it with eager feet,Until it joins some larger wayWhere many paths and errands meet.And whither then? I cannot say"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
24. "Oh BarbaraQuelle connerie la guerreQu'es-tu devenue maintenantSous cette pluie de ferDe feu d'acier de sangEt celui qui te serrait dans ses brasAmoureusementEst-il mort disparu ou bien encore vivantOh BarbaraIl pleut sans cesse sur BrestComme il pleuvait avantMais ce n'est plus pareil et tout est abiméC'est une pluie de deuil terrible et désoléeCe n'est même plus l'orageDe fer d'acier de sangTout simplement des nuagesQui crèvent comme des chiensDes chiens qui disparaissentAu fil de l'eau sur BrestEt vont pourrir au loinAu loin très loin de BrestDont il ne reste rien."

26. "We walk up the sandy slope toward the dining terrace. I see Troy sitting at a table with some people I know. I look at Scottie to see if she sees him, and she is giving him the middle finger. The dining terrace gasps, but I realize it's because of the sunset and the green flash. We missed it. The flash flashed. The sun is gone, and the sky is pink. I reach to grab the offending hand, but instead, I correct her gesture."Here, Scottie. Don't let that finger stand by itself like that. Bring up the other fingers just a little bit. There you go. That's the cool way to do it."Troy stares at us and smiles a bit. He's completely confused."All right, that's enough." I suddenly feel sorry for Troy. He must feel awful."
Author: Kaui Hart Hemmings
27. "Pain has an odd way of expressing itself in the acts of business. No matter how many setbacks a leader might experience, there always seems to be a new opaque watermark of endurance testing, invisibly triggered for erratic combustion in each compounding decision. Every CEO in the world knows this, yet few have the good sense to walk away from the table when their cards are hot. Why win in Act Two when a comeback in Act Three gives you a longer biography? Ego is not so much about immortality as it is about demonstrating stately resistance to nightmarish attacks in public forums. Any good smack to the head is a continuity wake up call, or at least another invitation to be interviewed by Charlie Rose."
Author: Ken Goldstein

You have to anwser their phone, manage their correspondence, run their errands, pay their bills, arrange their schedule, and basically do whatever tasks, menial to major, they are too busy or self absorbed or distranted or pampered or disinterested to do themselves."
Author: Lee Goldberg
31. "The day Glenn Gregg's daddy got back from New Orleans was the same day Lady Sally Anne Montberclair decided to park her big white Cadillac out in front of Red's Goodlookin Bar and Gro. and leave the motor running and scoot inside, out of the first drops of rain, on an errand. Glenn's daddy was named Solon."
Author: Lewis Nordan
32. "I've met the folk that have the perfect garlands and sprays and wreaths, the folk that live in Williamsburg-style houses. And I've met the folk that live at the edge of town in two-bedroom ranch houses that have Frosty the Snowman, lights playing tag around the roof, and a Rudolph stuck askew somewhere on the lawn. I'd rather sit in the home of the atter with and errant couch spring poking my derriere because, truthfully, they're glad to have me, and they never look at my shoes and wonder where I'd been before I got there."
Author: Lisa Samson

Author: Michelle Obama

Author: Oriana Fallaci

Author: Rebecca Solnit
39. "Study's overrated. Just find someone smart to copy off. -Adrian to Lissa"
Author: Richelle Mead
40. "The White GoddessAll saints revile her, and all sober menRuled by the God Apollo's golden mean -In scorn of which we sailed to find herIn distant regions likeliest to hold herWhom we desired above all things to know,Sister of the mirage and echo.It was a virtue not to stay,To go our headstrong and heroic waySeeking her out at the volcano's head,Among pack ice, or where the track had fadedBeyond the cavern of the seven sleepers:Whose broad high brow was white as any leper's,Whose eyes were blue, with rowan-berry lips,With hair curled honey-coloured to white hips.The sap of Spring in the young wood a-stirWill celebrate with green the Mother,And every song-bird shout awhile for her;But we are gifted, even in NovemberRawest of seasons, with so huge a senseOf her nakedly worn magnificenceWe forget cruelty and past betrayal,Heedless of where the next bright bolt may fall."

Author: Stéphane Mallarmé
43. "Contemplé el temblor de mis dedos y supe que el detalle no le pasaría desapercibido.-¿Te molesta?- pregunté, ya que había vuelto a cerrar los ojos.-No- respondió sin abrirlos- no puedes ni imaginarte cómo se siente eso.Suspiró."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
44. "Because we're all rainbow-colored inside, each of us a different arrangement, of course. The kiss just makes all the colors more concentrated, so intense they can be hard to look at. Or feel, rather. Like a Mediterranean sunset."
Author: Tess Callahan
45. "We tournament golfers are much overrated. We get paid to much."
Author: Tom Watson
46. "The 200 years when Britain and the US were the top two economies were an aberration and that will change. The decline of empires has happened much faster than folks think. I believe that gold will be a far better bet in 20 years than the dollar."

47. "Enquanto, por efeito de leis e costumes, houver proscrição social, forçando a existência, em plena civilização, de verdadeiros infernos, e desvirtuando, por humana fatalidade, um destino por natureza divino; enquanto os três problemas do século - a degradação do homem pelo proletariado, a prostituição da mulher pela fome, e a atrofia da criança pela ignorância - não forem resolvidos; enquanto houver lugares onde seja possível a asfixia social; em outras palavras, e de um ponto de vista mais amplo ainda, enquanto sobre a terra houver ignorância e miséria, livros como este não serão inúteis."
