Author: Ana Plascencia
4. "Help" is a prayer that is always answered. It doesn't matter how you pray--with your head bowed in silence, or crying out in grief, or dancing. Churches are good for prayer, but so are garages and cars and mountains and showers and dance floors.

5. "Man filmu žurnalistika ir pavisam nesaistoša blakus nodarbošanas. Es nenododos tai ne tuvu ar tadu profesionalu pamatigumu ka daudzi no maniem biedriem. Kad diena pavadita pie rakstammašinas, ir gluži patikami vakara aizbraukt uz kadu studiju un noskatities izradi. Es skatos caurmera divas, tris filmas nedela. Ziema vairak, vasaras menešos mazak. Telpas ir ertas un majigas. Skatitaji parastie, pazistamie laudis. Izrada vienmer tikai vienu filmu – lieki nenogurdinot. Preses izrades šad tad apmekle aktieri vai režisori, apsestas pedeja rinda un vero žurnalistu reakciju. Tuvojoties godalgošanas laikam, Holivuda specigi sasparojas. Vairojas preses konferences, vairojas pirmizrades ar druzmu, starmetejiem, ar premjeru piedališanos, fotografu bariem, televizijas kameru bidišanos. Savs raibums un spirgtums zinotaja – verotaja gaitam piemit, un tikai loti retais žurnalists maina savu profesiju pret kadu citu, mierigaku darbu"
Author: Anšlavs Eglitis
6. "In travelling where novelties of all kinds press in upon us, mental food is often supplied so rapidly from without that there is no time for digestion. We regret that the quickly shifting impressions can leave no permanent imprint. In reality, however, it is with this as it is with reading. How often we regret not being able to retain in the memory one-thousandth part of what is read ! It is comforting in both cases to know that the seen as well as the read has made a mental impression before it is forgotten, and thus forms the mind and nourishes it, while that which is retained in the memory merely fills and swells the hollow of the head with matter which remains ever foreign to it, because it has not been absorbed, and therefore the recipient can be as empty as before."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
7. "The Schnauzer listens to jazz. I listen to jazz because he likes it, and I have even gone to jazz concerts with him, but truthfully I would rather listen to retarded children pounding on pan lids with wooden spoons."

Author: Charles Baudelaire

14. "Ca s-a spus totul, ca nu mai e nimic de spus — o stim, o simtim. Dar ceea ce simtim mai putin e ca aceasta evidenta confera limbajului un statut straniu, chiar îngrijorator, care-l elibereaza. Cuvintele sunt în sfîrsit salvate, pentru ca au încetat sa traiasca."
Author: Emil Cioran
15. "Nu te atasa de o persoana: fie ea cea mai draga dintre toate, - fiecare persoana este o temnita si, totodata, un ungher. Nu te lasa atasat de un sentiment de compatimire: nici macar pentru oamenii superiori al caror martiriu deosebit si a caror neajutorare o descoperi întâmplator. Nu te atasa de o stiinta: chiar daca vreuna te-ar ademeni cu inestimabile descoperiri ce par sa-ti fie harazite de-a dreptul tie. Nu te atasa de propria-ti detasare, de nicio departare voluptuoasa, tinut îmbatator al pasarii ce zboara din ce în ce mai sus, pentru a zari sub ea o întindere mereu crescânda: - primejdia celui ce zboara. Nu te atasa de propriile-ti virtuti, nu te jertfi în întregime pentru un oarecare si unic detaliu, de exemplu pentru „ospitalitatea" ta: aceasta e primejdia primejdiilor pentru sufletele alese si bogate care, risipitoare si aproape nepasatoare fata de ele însele, împing virtutea generozitatii pâna la viciu. Trebuie sa stii sa te pastrezi: iata cea mai buna dovada a independentei."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
16. "The dull mind, once arriving at an inference that flatters the desire, is rarely able to retain the impression that the notion from which the inference started was purely problematic."
Author: George Eliot
17. "Art is magic... But how is it magic? In its metaphysical development? Or does some final transformation culminate in a magic reality? In truth, the latter is impossible without the former. If creation is not magic, the outcome cannot be magic."
Author: Hans Hofmann
18. "You will tell me the quiet story of your day's work, without any object except to give me your thoughts and your life. You will speak of your childhood memories. I shall not understand them very well because You will be able to give me, perforce, only insufficient details, but I shall love your sweet strange language."
Author: Henri Barbusse
19. "… El único camino para estar con los otros de verdad era estar separado de los otros, imponer tercamente a sí y a los otros esa incómoda singularidad y soledad en todas las horas y en todos los momentos de su vida, como es la vocación del poeta, del explorador, del revolucionario."
Author: Italo Calvino
20. "Seventeen, eh!" said Hagrid as he accepted a bucket-sized glass of wine from Fred."Six years to the day we met, Harry, d'yeh remember it?""Vaguely," said Harry, grinning up at him.

21. "My life is on loan, like money borrowed from a bank. God is the lender, and He retains the right to call in the loan any time. Though I am responsible for taking care of it, I do not own this life; it is borrowed. Why should I fear its loss or the loss of anything else in this world when I must surrender it all anyway?"

I need to turn my wall into a raft."
Author: John A. Passaro
24. "Away thou fondling motley humorist, Leave mee, and in this standing woodden chest, Consorted with these few bookes, let me lye In prison, and here be coffin'd, when I dye; Here are Gods conduits, grave Divines; and here Natures Secretary, the Philosopher; And jolly Statesmen, which teach how to tie The sinewes of a cities mistique bodie; Here gathering Chroniclers, and by them stand Giddie fantastique Poets of each land. Shall I leave all this constant company, And follow headlong, wild uncertaine thee?"
Author: John Donne
25. "As mãos são dois livros abertos, não pelas razões, supostas ou autênticas, da quiromancia, com as suas linhas do coração e da vida, da vida, meus senhores, ouviram bem, da vida, mas porque falam quando se abrem ou se fecham, quando acariciam ou golpeiam, quando enxugam uma lágrima ou disfarçam um sorriso, quando se pousam sobre um ombro ou acenam um adeus, quando trabalham, quando estão quietas, quando dormem, quando despertam."
Author: José Saramago

34. "She catches hold, then of this word "nothing," and stabs at it with a multitude of words and examples, and by means of a suitable interpretation, reduces it to this, that "nothing" can mean the same as "only a little thing" or "an imperfect thing;" she expounds in other words what the Sophists have hitherto taught regarding this passage: "Apart from me you can do nothing," that is to say "nothing perfectly."
Author: Martin Luther
35. "It seemed so simple in a lot of ways, to use a basic melody to pull away from myself. To ease the pain and hide my feelings deep within a metaphor that only I understood. I couldn't have foreseen that my quiet and dark night of the soul would start me down a path of expression through song."
Author: Mike Ericksen

Poznat nam je društveni i povijesni kontekst u kojem su djela nastala, razumljive su nam aluzije na koje nailazimo, igre rijeci, poznati su nam opisani prostori, a o razumijevanju mentaliteta ne moram ni govoriti. Kao citatelji najviše profitiramo citajuci svoje književnike."
Author: Miro Gavran
37. "The cliche had it that kids were the future, but that wasn't it: they were the unreflective, active present. They were not themselves nostalgic, because they couldn't be, and they retarded nostalgia in their parents.

She wanted to worry herself sick about schools and bullying and drugs."

40. "Come on," I said. "Let's reconnect this bad boy." Getting the dragon's head to the bottom was easy. It tumbled right down the slope and hit the neck with a loud, metallic BONK! Reconnecting it was harder. We had no tools and no experience. Annabeth fiddled with the wires and cursed in Ancient Greek. "We need Beckendorf. He could do this in seconds." "Isn't your mom the goddess of inventors?" I asked. Annabeth glared at me. "Yes, but this is different. I'm good with ideas. Not mechanics." "If I was going to pick one person in the world to reattach my head," I said, "I'd pick you." I just blurted it out—to give her confidence, I guess— but immediately I realized it sounded pretty stupid. "Awww. . ." Silena sniffled and wiped her eyes. "Percy, that is so sweet!"
Author: Rick Riordan

Reproduction?""Hey, even microorganisms gotta have fun, right?"

Author: Sonia Fernández Vidal
44. "Mom's hard and fast rule had been that my friends and I had to stay away from those tracks. The last GS&WM freight had passed along them ten years before, and weeds were growing up between the rusty ties, but that made no difference to Mom. She was convinced that if we played there, one last train (call it the Kid-Eating special) would go bulleting through and turns us all to paste. Only she was the one who got hit by an unscheduled train -- metastatic breast cancer at the age of forty-seven. One mean fucking express."
Author: Stephen King
45. "It's so hard to believe in anything anymore. I mean, it's like, religion, you really can't take it seriously, because it seems so mythological, it seems so arbitrary...but, on the other hand, science is just pure empiricism, and by virtue of its method, it excludes metaphysics. I guess I wouldn't believe in anything anymore if it weren't for my lucky astrology mood watch."
Author: Steve Martin
46. "I know what blood poisoning is, Katniss," says Peeta. "Even if my mother isn't a healer."I'm jolted back in time, to another wound, another set of bandages.

"You were the reason I was alive to do it."
Author: Suzanne Collins
47. "This last altercation has given Enobaria and Gloss time to reach the Cornucopia. Brutus is within shooting distance and somewhere, certainly, Cashmere is nearby, too. These four classic Careers will no doubt have a prior alliance. If I had only my own safety to consider, I might be willing to take them on with Finnick by my side. But it's Peeta I'm thinking about. I spot him now, still stranded on his metal plate. I take off and Finnick follows without question, as if knowing this will be my next move. When I'm as close as I can get, I start removing knives from my belt, preparing to swim out to reach him and somehow bring him in.Finnick drops a hand on my shoulder. "I'll get him."Suspicion flickers up inside me. Could this all just be a ruse? For Finnick to win my trust and then swim out and drown Peeta? "I can," I insist.But Finnick has dropped all his weapons to the ground. "Better not exert yourself. Not in your condition," he says, and reaches down and pats my abdomen."
Author: Suzanne Collins
48. "Have - have you got an appointment?' he said.'I don't know,' said Carrot. 'Have we got an appointment?''I've got an iron ball with spikes on,' Nobby volunteered.'That's a morningstar, Nobby.''Is it?''Yes,' said Carrot. 'An appointment is an engagement to see someone, while a morningstar is a large lump of metal used for viciously crushing skulls. It is important not to confuse the two, isn't it, Mr-?' He raised his eyebrows.'Boffo, sir. But-''So if you could perhaps run along and tell Dr Whiteface we're here with an iron ball with spi- What am I saying? I mean, without an appointment to see him? Please? Thank you."
Author: Terry Pratchett
49. "You know, the immortality of the soul, free will and all that -- it's all very amusing to talk about up to the age of twenty-two, but not after that. Then one ought to be giving one's mind to having fun without catching the pox, arranging one's life as comfortably as possible, having a few decent drawings on the wall, and above all writing well. That's the important thing: well-made sentences...and then a few metaphors. Yes, a few metaphors. They embellish a man's existence."
Author: Théophile Gautier
50. "As the interpretation of reality by the power structure, ideology is always subordinated ultimately to the interests of the structure. Therefore, it has a natural tendency to disengage itself from reality, to create a world of appearances, to become ritual... Increasingly, the virtuosity of the ritual becomes more important than the reality hidden behind it."
Author: Václav Havel

Today's Quote

I read Greek myths. I read about far off places, Venice and Paris. I read about men who searched for things they could not find at home, and women who fell in love with the wrong person and waited for the arrival of their beloved for so long that a year was no different from a single day. The same thing was happening to me. Years were passing. I was already a woman, and I still wasn't done reading."
Author: Alice Hoffman
