4. "Nunca escrevi uma história ou romance com o intuito de simplesmente enviar uma mensagem política direta, tal como ‘parem de construir assentamentos nos territórios ocupados' ou ‘reconheçam o direito dos palestinos a Jerusalém Oriental'. Nunca escrevo um romance alegórico a fim de dizer a meu povo ou a meu governo para fazer isso ou aquilo. Para isso, utilizo meus artigos. Se há uma mensagem metapolítica em meus romances, é sempre uma mensagem, de uma maneira ou de outra, de um compromisso, compromisso doloroso, e da necessidade de escolher a vida em lugar da morte, a imperfeição da vida em lugar das perfeições da morte gloriosa. p. 98/9."

13. "Mas a explicação solitária já requer uma outra altitude - utilizemos esta palavra - da inteligência. Qualquer instinto criativo começa com esta necessidade antiga que a memória colectiva faz por esquecer: somos criativos porque queremos encontrar uma explicação solitária, uma explicação individual, uma explicação que não tenha par, que não tenha duplo, que não seja possível acompanhar, uma explicação egoísta, dirão alguns, sim, egoísta, claro. Mais que isso: rancorosa. Uma explicação que odeia as outras, que as combate, mas combate não para vencer somente as outras explicações, mas para vencer, derrotar, eliminar os próprios homens portadores de outras explicações solitárias. A explicação solitária, a ciência individual por excelência, no limite, quer eliminar todas as outras existências, porque as odeia; e odeia-as simplesmente porque outra inteligência e outra possibilidade de solidão são a prova de que sozinhos não ocupamos o mundo."
Author: Gonçalo M. Tavares

20. "Andrew had been staring, mesmerized as Vivien recounted the details of Lysandra's request, but now he shook off his interest. "And again, what does this have to do with me?" "I need a man who would be willing to gently introduce her to pleasure. One who would be patient with her fears and yet experienced enough to turn her into a mistress any man would desire." Andrew opened his mouth, but found he could say nothing for a moment. Once again, images bombarded his mind. Illicit. And much more befitting the man he had once been many years before."
Author: Jess Michaels

22. "Politics are popularly supposed to govern the direction, and statesmen to be the guardian angels, of Civilization. It seems to me that they have little or no power over its growth. They are of it, and move with it. Their concern is rather with the body than with the mind or soul of a nation. One needs not to be an engineer to know that to pull a man up a wall one must be higher than he; that to raise general taste one must have better taste than that of those whose taste he is raising."
Author: John Galsworthy

26. "Quando montava o Salomão, a subhro sempre lhe havia parecido que o mundo era pequeno, mas hoje, no cais do porto de génova, alvo dos olhares de centenas de pessoas literalmente embevecidas pelo espectáculo que lhes estava sendo oferecido, quer com a sua própria pessoa quer com um animal em todos os aspectos tão desmedido que obedecia ás suas ordens, fritz contemplava com uma espécie de desdém a multidão, e, num insólito instante de lucidez e relativização, pensou que, bem vistas as coisas, um arquiduque, um rei, um imperador não são mais do que cornacas montados num elefante."

33. "Mesmerized, all she can do is watch this piece of her life move off; all she can do is watch it and suffer. She is experiencing a brand-new feeling called nostalgia. That feeling, that irrepressible yearning to return, suddenly reveals to her the existence of the past, the power of the past, of her past; in the house of her life […] from now on her existence will be inconceivable without these feelings."

34. "Gerard Manley Hopkins somewhere describes how he mesmerized a duck by drawing a line of chalk out in front of it. Think of me as the duck; the chalk, softly wearing itself away against the tiny pebbles embedded in the corporate concrete, is Joyce's forward-luring rough-smooth voice on the cassettes she gives me. Or, to substitute another image, since one is hardly sufficient in Joyce's case, when I let myself really enter her tape, when I let it surround me, it is as if I'm sunk into the pond of what she is saying, as if I'm some kind of patient, cruising amphibian, drifting in black water, entirely submerged except for my eyes, which blink every so often. Each word comes floating up to me like a thick, healthy lily pad and brushes past my head."
Author: Nicholson Baker

36. "Cuántas veces, amor, te amé sin verte y tal vez sin recuerdo, sin reconocer tu mirada, sin mirarte, centaura, en regiones contrarias, en un mediodía quemante: eras sólo el aroma de los cereales que amo.Tal vez te vi, te supuse al pasar levantando una copa en Angol, a la luz de la luna de Junio, o eras tú la cintura de aquella guitarra que toqué en las tinieblas y sonó como el mar desmedido.Te amé sin que yo lo supiera, y busqué tu memoria. En las casas vacías entré con linterna a robar tu retrato. Pero yo ya sabía cómo era. De prontomientras ibas conmigo te toqué y se detuvo mi vida: frente a mis ojos estabas, reinándome, y reinas. Como hoguera en los bosques el fuego es tu reino."
Author: Pablo Neruda
37. "Not that I mean the least fling against men who have won a great fleet action - it is right and proper that THEY should be peers - but when you look at the mass of titles, tradesmen, dirty politicians, moneylenders...why, I had as soon be plain Jack Aubrey - Captain Jack Aubrey, for I am as proud as Nebuchadnezzar of my service rank, and if ever I hoist my flag, I shall paint HERE LIVES ADMIRAL AUBREY on the front of Ashgrove Cottage in huge letters."

Simplesmente não há maneira de saberes em que te tornarás."
