2. "[…] nobody grows up. Everyone carries around all the selves that they have ever been, intact, waiting to be reactivated in moments of pain, of fear, of danger. Everything is retrievable, every shock, every hurt. But perhaps it becomes a duty to abandon the stock of time that one carries within oneself, to discard it in favour of the present, so that one's embrace may be turned outwards to the world in which one has made one's home."
Author: Anita Brookner

5. "El soberbio hace su gran concesión y dice "Yo soy yo y mis circunstancias", pero Edmundo vigilaba sus circunstancias, yo soy mi padre, mi rencor, mi universidad, mi máster imaginario, mis mentiras; soy mi madre, la venganza, la frente pronunciada, el mentón abrupto: soy Raimundo, Julio, Gregorio, mi contrato, mi jefe de personal; soy bailar y no creer y Cristina y soy criado por otros, siempre criado por otros. En cuanto a ser yo, qué predicado aceptaría puede el preso decir: yo soy quien se levanta a las siete y media de la mañana o ése es el reglamento de la prisión; en cuanto a ser, el yo exigía libertad, mas no la inútil libertad de escoger entre un jersey azul y un jersey amarillo sino la libertad de que sus circunstancias no le impusieran el participio de criado, el predicado de señor."

7. "Nothing was ever in tune. People just blindly grabbed at whatever there was: communism, health foods, zen, surfing, ballet, hypnotism, group encounters, orgies, biking, herbs, Catholicism, weight-lifting, travel, withdrawal, vegetarianism, India, painting, writing, sculpting, composing, conducting, backpacking, yoga, copulating, gambling, drinking, hanging around, frozen yogurt, Beethoven, Back, Buddha, Christ, TM, H, carrot juice, suicide, handmade suits, jet travel, New York City, and then it all evaporated and fell apart. People had to find things to do while waiting to die. I guess it was nice to have a choice."
Author: Charles Bukowski
8. "Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done.. almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing. The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world. And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to stop devastating the world.. or to repair the devastation we've already wrought."
Author: Daniel Quinn
9. "The connectivity of the cloud and the prevalence of tablets and smartphones have eroded the traditional online/offline divide. Within a short time we will most probably stop thinking of it as 'online.' We will simply be connected, all the time, everywhere, and the online world will be notable only by its absence when that connection breaks."
Author: David Amerland
10. "People get devalued in Hollywood when they age, despite all their efforts to stay relevant and beautiful and young. They can't get jobs anymore."
Author: David LaChapelle
11. "He stood staring into the wood for a minute, then said: "What is it about the English countryside — why is the beauty so much more than visual? Why does it touch one so?"He sounded faintly sad. Perhaps he finds beauty saddening — I do myself sometimes. Once when I was quite little I asked father why this was and he explained that it was due to our knowledge of beauty's evanescence, which reminds us that we ourselves shall die. Then he said I was probably too young to understand him; but I understood perfectly."
Author: Dodie Smith

19. "There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the Bay, then up the Golden Gate or down 101 to Los Altos or La Honda .... You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning ....And that, I think, was the handle—that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting—on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave ....So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark —that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back."
Author: Hunter S. Thompson
20. "Lectura instantánea. Cierto famoso fakir afirmaba en el pueblo que podía enseñar a leer a una persona iletrada mediante una técnica relámpago. Nasrudín salió de entre la multitud. "Muy bien, enséñame, ahora." El fakir tocó la frente del Mulla y dijo: "Ahora ve a casa inmediatamente y lee un libro". Media hora más tarde, Nasrudín estaba de vuelta en el mercado, llevando un libro en sus manos. El fakir se había marchado. "¿Puedes leer ahora, Mulla?", le preguntó la gente. "Sí, puedo leer, pero eso no es lo importante. ¿Dónde está ese charlatán?" "Cómo puede ser un charlatán si ha conseguido que leas sin aprender?" "Porque este libro, que es de incuestionable autoridad, dice: 'Todos los fakires son farsantes."

Author: Javier Marías
23. "Ci scrutammo in silenzio per un lungo minuto, abituandoci di nuovo alla presenza dell'altro, all'essere ancora entrambi vivi, in salvo, al sicuro nella civilizzata Londra. La pioggia che batteva sui vetri e il cla-clam-cla-clam dei pistoni della Pneumopolitana divennero solo un rumore bianco in sottofondo."
Author: Letizia Loi
24. "When I turned the corner, I saw Toni waving at me from the elevator. I think I've already told you how it made me feel to see her smile and wave at me. You can have your sunsets and waterfalls.

26. "It is irrelevant to the entrepreneur, as the servant of the consumers, whether the wishes and wants of the consumers are wise or unwise, moral or immoral. He produces what the consumers want. In this sense he is amoral. He manufactures whiskey and guns just as he produces food and clothing. It is not his task to teach reason to the sovereign consumers. Should one entrepreneur, for ethical reasons of his own, refuse to manufacture whiskey, other entrepreneurs would do so as long as whiskey is wanted and bought. It is not because we have distilleries that people drink whiskey; it is because people like to drink whiskey that we have distilleries. One may deplore this. But it is not up to the entrepreneurs to improve mankind morally. And they are not to be blamed if those whose duty this is have failed to do so."
Author: Ludwig Von Mises
27. "Relevance is a search engine's holy grail. People want results that are closely connected to their queries."

30. "This, I believe, is the appropriate image of human intercourse -- appropriate because it recognizes the qualities, the diversities, and the proper relationships of human utterances. As civilized human beings, we are the inheritors, neither of an inquiry about ourselves and the world, nor of an accumulating body of information, but of a conversation, begun in the primeval forests and extended and made more articulate in the course of centuries. It is a conversation which goes on both in public and within each of ourselves."
Author: Michael Oakeshott
31. "...cineva care stie a iubi cu adevarat poate experimenta voluptatea oricat de neinsemnata ar fi atingerea trupului celuilalt. Ii explicasem atunci ca, pentru mine, posesiunea e mult mai neinteleasa si mai complicata decat se pare. E foarte greu sa ai ceva cu adevarat, sa-l capeti sau sa-l cuceresti. Mai mult ne inchipuim ca posedam decat posedam."
Author: Mircea Eliade
32. "Un uomo che scoreggia al letto è un uomo che ama la vita, diceva mia nonna."
Author: Muriel Barbery
33. "Pero las cuestiones humanas no conducían a conclusiones tajantes, al trazado de una línea ni a una suma total. Parecían resolverse, disolverse, cuando sólo se estaban formando de nuevo, reuniéndose en otra combinación. Incluso cuando estamos muertos, lo que hicimos continúa tramando estas nuevas combinaciones."
Author: Nadine Gordimer
34. "No mirrors in the real world had the ability to reach inside you the way these did. You could tell yourself that the mirrors were simply telling lies, but you'd be wrong. They took tiny truths, swelling them out of proportion?and the fact that there was a kernel of truth in what they reflected made the effect devastating."
Author: Neal Shusterman
35. "Television is our culture's principal mode of knowing about itself. Therefore -- and this is the critical point -- how television stages the world becomes the model for how the world is properly to be staged. It is not merely that on the television screen entertainment is the metaphor for all discourse. It is that off the screen the same metaphor prevails. (92)"
Author: Neil Postman
36. "Poezia în esen?a ei nu tine de cuvinte. Esenta poeziei nu trebuie mai întîi cautata în limba... Limba pentru poezie nu este altceva decît un vehicul.Dar ea, poezia, se face simtita prin limba, pentru ca din toate partile trupului vorbirea seamana cel mai putin cu radacina sa, cu trupul, dupa cum frunza seamana cel mai putin cu radacina copacului."
Author: Nichita Stănescu
37. "There were many things they simply didn't talk about: between them, silence was not so much a form of evasion as a way for solitary people to exist in a family."
Author: Nicole Krauss
38. "I came in several times and spoke, but perhaps you were asleep when I thought you were awake.''You are very considerate to explain it this way,' Sugreeva said, 'but I was drunk"
Author: R.K. Narayan
39. "O cuprinse in brate; parca nu auzise.- Eva, o sa-ti simt lipsa!- Atunci de ce pleci?Îl simti ca se duce departe, de unde poate venise adineauri.- Nu stiu; mi-e teama sa nu ma transform in copac. (Nu glumea, nici nu parea nebun.) Mi-e teama de limitarile spatiului. Trebuie sa plec repede, si mereu, sa ma apar!Nu-l intelegea si nici nu credea ca trebuie sa-l inteleaga. Isi pregatise si ultima miza:- Ia-ma cu tine!Nu-i raspunse; din departarile intunecate unde se chinuise ajungea iar la lumina, in mijlocul camerei. O privea si o adulmeca, mirat de ceea ce gasea iarasi nou in pielea curata, aurita de soare, care tremura sub degetele lui, arzându-l, cum ar fi fost incarcata de electricitate.Tacerea o facu sa spere; in inima incepeau sa i se lipeasca la loc firele rupte si nu indraznea sa spuna nimic, inainte de a simti ca sudura e trainica. Trebuie sa umble incet cu speranta ei, sa n-o destrame."
Author: Radu Tudoran
40. "Just as predatory animals follow a similar general design and behave in similar ways, so organizations, especially those in competition with one another, must follow certain design principles if they are to succeed and prevail."
Author: Robert Shea
41. "Maintaining a safe distance, she practiced extreme caution as they headed further and further away from the center of the city. She tried to act casual when passing people on the street while simultaneously keeping an eye on the elusive John Smith. That part wasn't hard of course because most of the people headed in their direction moved submissively to the other side as her mysterious new neighbor passed. Choking down a feeling of dread, she wondered if she'd be smart to do the same and head back to the apartment. Against her better judgment, Evangeline pushed on."
Author: Shawn Kirsten Maravel
42. "She flashes me a smile so devastating that it could even make an atheist believe in God."
Author: Sonya Sones

Author: T.S. Eliot
44. "But such people (Moderate Conservatives) aren't liberal. What they are is corporate. Their habits and opinions owe far more to the standards of courtesy and taste that prevail within the white-collar world than they do to Franklin Roosevelt and the United Mine Workers. We live in a time, after all, when hard-nosed bosses compose awestruck disquisitions on the nature of 'change,' punk rockers dispense leadership secrets, shallow profundities about authenticity sell luxury cars, tech billionaires build rock'n'roll musuems, management theorists ponder the nature of coolness, and a former lyricist fro the Grateful Dead hail the dawn of New Economy capitalism from the heights of Davos. Coversvatives may not understand why, but business culture had melded with counterculture for reasons having a great deal to do with business culture's usual priority - profit."
Author: Thomas Frank
45. "The Saint whose water can light lamps, the clairvoyant whose lapse in recall is the breath of God, the true paranoid for whom all is organized in spheres joyful or threatening about the central pulse of himself, the dreamer whose puns probe ancient fetid shafts and tunnels of truth all act in the same special relevance to the word, or whatever it is the word is there, buffering, to protect us from. The act of metaphor than was a thrust at truth and a lie, depending where you were: inside, safe or outside, lost."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
46. "Comedy is deemed inferior to tragedy primarily because of the social prevalence of narcissistic pathology. In other words people who are too self important to laugh at their own frequently ridiculous behavior have vested interest in gravity because it supports their illusions of grandosity."
Author: Tom Robbins
47. "So, Eva Nine, you must sometimes disregard what someone is saying and focus instead on what they are doing. Watch and observe. That is when one reveals his true self."
Author: Tony DiTerlizzi
48. "Der Nazismus wurde von Millionen als Evangelium hingenommen, weil er sich der Sprache des Evangeliums bediente. Wurde? - Ich habe das "Ich glaube an ihn" nur bis in die letzten Tage des Hitlerreiches verfolgt. Ich habe jetzt Tag für Tag mit Rehabilitierten zu tun und solchen, die rehabilitiert sein wollen. Diesen Leute, so verschieden sie auch sonst untereinander sein mögen, ist eines gemeinsam: Sie behaupten alle, eine Sondergruppe der "Opfer des Faschismus" zu bilden, sie sind alle gegen ihre Überzeugung durch irgendwelche Gewaltanwendung zum Eintritt in die ihnen von jeher verhaßte gezwungen worden, sie haben nie an den Führer, nie an das Dritte Reich geglaubt."
Author: Victor Klemperer
49. "I have a rule - 'funny is funny!' When I write comedy, it's not my aim to upset people. I will be offensive, edgy and immature, but I will also be very intelligent and relevant. At my shows, there are no holy cows."
Author: Vir Das
50. "To an even moderately sophisticated and well-read person it should come as no surprise that any religion at all has its hidden as well as its obvious beauties and is capable of profound and impressive interpretations. What is deeply objectionable about most of these interpretations is that they allow the believer to say Yes while evading any No."
