101. "Parfois, tard dans ces nuits où la danse, l'alcool léger, mon déchaînement, le violent abandon de chacun, me jetaient dans un ravissement à la fois las et comblé, il me semblait, à l'extrémité de la fatigue, et l'espace d'une seconde, que je comprenais enfin le secret des êtres et du monde. Mais la fatigue disparaissait le lendemain et, avec elle, le secret; je m'élançais de nouveau."
Author: Albert Camus
102. "Squeezed against each other in the heavy heat, they were silent...looking toward the home that was expecting them--quiet, perspiring, resigned to this existence divided among a soulless job, long trips coming and going in an uncomfortable trolley, and at the end an abrupt sleep. On some evenings it would sadden Jacques to look at them. Until then he had only known the riches and the joys of poverty. But now heat and boredom and fatigue were showing him their curse, the curse of work so stupid you could weep and so interminably monotonous that it made the days too long and, at the same time, life too short."
Author: Albert Camus
103. "A gentle, quiet young man who might sit languid at her feet and read his verses to her or who might paint or draw her portrait. He would hold her hand and whisper how beautiful she was, how precious to him. Of course you mustn't play the pianoforte, he would say. Only silly females who have no higher accomplishments squander their strength on such an empty pastime. Dancing? No, that is far too fatiguing. May I sit beside you and fan you while you read?"
Author: Ann Herendeen
104. "Elle avait failli à un moment... Elle était fatiguée, elle aurait dû poser ses coudes sur le bureau elle aussi, et lui raconter la vérité. Lui dire que si elle ne mangeait plus, ou si peu, c'est parce que des cailloux prenaient toute la place dans son ventre. Qu'elle se réveillait chaque jour avec l'impression de mâcher du gravier, qu'elle n'avait pas encore ouvert les yeux, que déjà, elle étouffait. Que déjà le monde qui l'entourait n'avait plus aucune importance et que chaque nouvelle journée était comme un poids impossible à soulever. Alors, elle pleurait. Non pas qu'elle fut triste, mais pour faire passer tout ça. Les larmes, ce liquide finalement, l'aidaient à digérer sa caillasse et lui permettaient de respirer à nouveau."
Author: Anna Gavalda
105. "Since the age of five I had been one of those people who was an indefatigable reader, more inclined to go off by myself with a book than do any of the dozens of things that children usually do to amuse themselves. I never aged out of it."
Author: Anna Quindlen
106. "Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et c'est fatigant, pour les enfants, de toujours et toujours leur donner des explications..."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
107. "The second suggestion is to think as well as to read. I know people who read and read, and for all the good it does them they might just as well cut bread-and-butter. They take to reading as better men take to drink. They fly through the shires of literature on a motor-car, their sole object being motion. They will tell you how many books they have read in a year. Unless you give at least 45 minutes to careful, fatiguing reflection (it is an awful bore at first) upon what you are reading, your 90 minutes of a night are chiefly wasted."
Author: Arnold Bennett
108. "When I fight off a disease bent on my cellular destruction, when I marvelously distribute energy and collect waste with astonishing alacrity even in my most seemingly fatigued moments, when I slip on ice and gyrate crazily but do not fall, when I unconsciously counter-steer my way into a sharp bicycle turn, taking advantage of physics I do not understand using a technique I am not even aware of using, when I somehow catch the dropped oranges before I know I've dropped them, when my wounds heal in my ignorance, I realize how much bigger I am than I think I am. And how much more important, nine times out of ten, those lower-level processes are to my overall well-being than the higher-level ones that tend to be the ones getting me bent out of shape or making me feel disappointed or proud."
Author: Brian Christian
109. "Seek and see all the marvels around you. You will get tired of looking at yourself alone, and that fatigue will make you deaf and blind to everything else. - Don Juan"
Author: Carlos Castaneda
110. "Your extensive travels must have been fatiguing," Zakath said in that same flat tone, "particularly for the ladies. I'll see to it that your return journey to Mal Zeth is made in easy stages." "Your Majesty is very kind, but we're not going back to Mal Zeth.""You're wrong, Belgarion. You are going back to Mal Zeth.""Sorry, I've got a pressing engagement elsewhere.""I'll convey your regrets to Zandramas when I see her.""I'm sure she'd be overjoyed to hear that I'm not coming.""Not for very long, she won't. I fully intent to have her burned as a witch.""Good luck, your Majesty, but I don't think you'll find that she's very combustible."
Author: David Eddings
111. "Për fatin e keq të njeriut, kujtimet nuk lihen dot në asnjë vend. Do apo s'do ti, ato të ndjekin nga pas si hija, që aty është gjithmonë, pavarësisht nga fakti nëse është diell dhe ti e sheh apo është vrenjtur dhe nuk mundesh."
Author: Enkelejd Lamaj
112. "La mayor nobleza de los hombres es la de levantar su obra en medio de la devastación, sosteniéndola infatigablemente, a medio camino entre el desgarro y la belleza."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
113. "Don't be so anxious about it,' she laughed. 'I'm not used to being loved. I wouldn't know what to do; I never got the trick of it.' She looked down at him, shy and fatigued. 'So here we are. I told you years ago that I had the makings of Cinderella.'He took her hand; she drew it back instinctively and then replaced it in his. 'Beg your pardon. Not even used to being touched. But I'm not afraid of you, if you stay quiet and don't move suddenly."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
114. "Amor fati: this is the very core of my being—And as to my prolonged illness, do I not owe much more to it than I owe to my health? To it I owe a higher kind of health, a sort of health which grows stronger under everything that does not actually kill it!—To it, I owe even my philosophy.… Only great suffering is the ultimate emancipator of spirit, for it teaches one that vast suspiciousness which makes an X out of every U, a genuine and proper X, i.e., the antepenultimate letter. Only great suffering; that great suffering, under which we seem to be over a fire of greenwood, the suffering that takes its time—forces us philosophers to descend into our nethermost depths, and to let go of all trustfulness, all good-nature, all whittling-down, all mildness, all mediocrity,—on which things we had formerly staked our humanity."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
115. "If there is one fact we really can prove, from the history that we really do know, it is that despotism can be a development, often a late development and very often indeed the end of societies that have been highly democratic. A despotism may almost be defined as a tired democracy. As fatigue falls on a community, the citizens are less inclined for that eternal vigilance which has truly been called the price of liberty; and they prefer to arm only one single sentinel to watch the city while they sleep."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
116. "Dar cum sa vorbesti despre un rau care nu poate fi descris,care isi schimba infatisarea ca norii, care se involbureaza ca vantul?"
Author: Gustave Flaubert
117. "Cette oppression douloureuse, ce malaise de l'ame que laisse en nous lé chagrin sur lequel on a dormi. Il semble que lé malheur, dont lé choc nous a seulement heurte la veille, se soit glisse, durant nôtre repos, dans nôtre chair elle-meme, qu'il meurtrit et fatigue comme une fièvre.??? ????? ??????? ?????? ????? ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ?????. ????? ?? ???? ??????? ???? ?????? ?????? ????? ???? ??????? ?? ????? ???? ?????? ?????? ??????."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
118. "But I still serve pretty big and that's one of my biggest weapons, so if my shoulder holds up and I can count on it, I can win a few matches and then you never know how the other guys are going to react to the fatigue and the length of the matches."
Author: Guy Forget
119. "The wretch who digs the mine for bread, or ploughs, that others may be fed, feels less fatigued than that decreed to him who cannot think or read."
Author: Hannah More
120. "You must not let fatigue set in," she warns. "That is what my mother said. Let your body work until it is spent, but keep your mind for yourself.""Good advice.""To tell the truth, I do not know this thing called 'mind', what it does or how to use it. It is only a word I have heard.""The mind is nothing you use," I say. "The mind is just there. It is like the wind. You simply feel its movements."
Author: Haruki Murakami
121. "Può darsi che la fatica controlli il tuo corpo, ma fai del tuo cuore una cosa tua."
Author: Haruki Murakami
122. "To him, a stilted geometric love of arrangement was "system," and indefatigable and feverish interest in the pettiest facets of day-to-day bureaucracy was "industry", indecision when right was "caution", and blind stubbornness when wrong, "determination."
Author: Isaac Asimov
123. "Si vous voulez vraiment le savoir, j'aurais préféré ne jamais être né. La vie, je trouve ca bien fatigant. Bien sur, à présent la chose est faite, et je ne peux rien y changer. Mais il y a toujours au fond de moi ce regret, que je n'ariverai pas à chasser complètement, et qui gâchera tout. Maintenant, il s'agit de vieillir vite, d'avaler les années le plus vite possible, sans regarder à gauche ni à droitPréface de "La fièvre"
Author: J.M.G. Le Clézio
124. "There is, in the Army, a little known but very important activity appropriately called Fatigue. Fatigue, in the Army, is the very necessary cleaning and repairing of the aftermath of living. Any man who has ever owned a gun has known Fatigue, when, after fifteen minutes in the woods and perhaps three shots at an elusive squirrel, he has gone home to spend three-quarters of an hour cleaning up his piece so that it will be ready next time he goes to the woods. Any woman who has ever cooked a luscious meal and ladled it out in plates upon the table has known Fatigue, when, after the glorious meal is eaten, she repairs to the kitchen to wash the congealed gravy from the plates and the slick grease from the cooking pots so they will be ready to be used this evening, dirtied, and so washed again. It is the knowledge of the unendingness and of the repetitious uselessness, the do it up so it can be done again, that makes Fatigue fatigue."
Author: James Jones
125. "Naturalists tell of a noble race of horses that instinctively open a vein with their teeth, when heated and exhausted by a long course, in order to breathe more freely. I am often tempted to open a vein, to procure for myself everlasting liberty. Cento volte ho impugnato una lama per conficcarmela nel cuore. Si dice di una nobile razza i cavalli,che quando si sentono accaldati e affaticati, si aprono istintivamente una vena, per respirare più liberamente. Spesso anche io vorrei aprirmi una vena che mi desse libertà eterna."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
126. "Tal como a experiência da comunicação tem abundantemente demonstrado, o poder de mobilização da palavra oral, no imediato, em nada inferior ao da palavra escrita, e mesmo, num primeiro momento, talvez mais apta que ela a arrebanhar vontades e multidões, é dotada de um alcance histórico bastante mais limitado, devido a que, com as repetições do discurso, se lhe fatiga com rapidez o fôlego e se lhe desviam os propósitos. Não se vê outra razão para que as leis que nos regem estejam todas escritas."
Author: José Saramago
127. "Le pareció que dulcemente una de las dos lloraba. Debía ser ella porque sintió mojadas las mejillas, y el pómulo mismo doliéndole como si tuviera allí un golpe. También el cuello, y de pronto los hombros, agobiados por fatigas incontables. Al abrir los ojos (tal vez gritaba ya) vio que se habían separado. Ahora sí gritó. De frío, porque la nieve le estaba entrando por los zapatos rotos, porque yéndose camino de la plaza iba Alina Reyes lindísima en su sastre gris, el pelo un poco suelto contra el viento, sin dar vuelta la cara y yéndose. (Lejana)"
Author: Julio Cortázar
128. "Tea tempers the spirits and harmonizes the mind, dispels lassitude and relieves fatigue, awakens thought and prevents drowsiness, lightens or refreshes the body, and clears the perceptive faculties."
Author: Lu Yu
129. "The optimism of a healthy mind is indefatigable."
Author: Margery Allingham
130. "Ceea-ce-se-situeaza-în-sine-însusi devine, din clipa în care este considerat dinspre privitor, ceea-ce-se-în-fatiseaza, ceea ce se ofera în aspectul sau exterior."
Author: Martin Heidegger
131. "Fatigue controls most of what you do or don't do during the day. Everywhere you turn you feel like you simply aren't giving enough. You aren't a good enough friend, wife, or mom."
Author: Meg Meeker
132. "Sin does not always drive us to drink; more often it drives us to exhaustion. Tiredness is equally as debilitating as drunkenness. Burnout is slang for an inner tiredness, a fatigue of our souls. Jesus came to forgive us all of our sins, including the sin of busyness. The problem with growth in the modern church is not the slowness of growth but the rushing of growth."
Author: Mike Yaconelli
133. "E imparai, con umiltà e fatica, ma imparai quello che dovevo fare, e che sarebbe stato ovvio per un bambino: la vita non è altro che un susseguirsi di tante piccole vite, vissute un giorno alla volta. Si dovrebbe trascorrere ogni giorno cercando la bellezza nei fiori e nella poesia e parlando con gli animali. E nulla può essere migliore di un giorno colmo di sogni e di tramonti e di brezze leggere. Imparai soprattutto che la vita è sedere su una panchina sulla riva di un fiume antico, con la mia mano posata sul suo ginocchio e a volte, nei momenti più dolci, innamorarmi di nuovo."
Author: Nicholas. Sparks
134. "The rosy hearth, the lamplight's narrow beam, The meditation that is rather dream, With looks that lose themselves in cherished looks; The hour of steaming tea and banished books; The sweetness of the evening at an end, The dear fatigue, and right to rest attained, And worshipped expectation of the night,— Oh, all these things, in unrelenting flight, My dream pursues through all the vain delays, Impatient of the weeks, mad at the days!"
Author: Paul Verlaine
135. "Va' a prendere le tue cose," ha detto. " I sogni richiedono fatica."
Author: Paulo Coelho
136. "Roza..."The voice caressed my skin, cold and deadly. Still scrutinizing his surroundings, Dimitri took one step forward. Then another. And then another.I think it occurred to him to look up the instant I jumped. My body slammed into his, knocking him to the ground back first. He immediately tried to throw me off, just as I tried to drive the stake through his heart. Signs of fatigue and fighting were all over him. Defeating the other Strigoi had taken its toll, though I doubted I was in much better shape. We grappled, and once, I managed to rake the stake over his cheek. He snarled in pain but kept his chest well protected. Over it, I could see where I'd ripped his shirt the first time I'd staked him. The wound had already healed. "You. Are. Amazing," he said, his words full of both pride and battle fury."
Author: Richelle Mead
137. "You know," he said, "under normal circumstances, you inviting me to the bedroom would be the highlight of my day."I crossed my arms and sat on the bed. I did so out of simple fatigue, but a moment later, I was struck by what I was doing. This is where Adrian sleeps. I'm touching the covers he's wrapped in every night. What does he wear? Does he wear anything?I jumped up."
Author: Richelle Mead
138. "It's hard to be spiritually strong and mentally alert when you are emotionally stressed or physically fatigued."
Author: Rick Warren
139. "Maski hindi Valentine's Day nagpamudmod ang Malakanyang ng Valentine's package na may lamang five hundred pesos, tatlong latang sardinas, at isang torotot na kapag hinipan mo ay nagsasabing I love you, love mo din ba ako? Ang fatigue na uniform ng army ay ginawang pink para daw mapalapit sa sambayanan."
Author: Ricky Lee
140. "And as far as possible for sickness or fatigue, constrain yourself to eat in the hall before your people, for this shall bring great benefit and honour to you."
Author: Robert Grosseteste
141. "I walked slowly on, without envying my companions on horseback: for I could sit down upon an inviting spot, climb to the edge of a precipice, or trace a torrent by its sound. I descended at length into the Rheinthal, or Valley of the Rhine; the mountains of Tyrol, which yielded neither in height or in cragginess to those of Appenzel, rising before me. And here I found a remarkable difference: for although the ascending and descending was a work of some labor; yet the variety of the scenes had given me spirits, and I was not sensible of the least fatigue. But in the plain, notwithstanding the scenery was still beautiful and picturesque, I saw at once the whole way stretching before me, and had no room for fresh expectations: I was not therefore displeased when I arrived at Oberried, after a walk of about twelve miles, my coat flung upon my shoulder like a peripatetic by profession.-William Coxe"
Author: Robin Jarvis
142. "I call it fan fatigue. I went to see Bob Dylan last year, who I think is absolutely incredible, but he suffers from his audience."
Author: Roger Daltrey
143. "Je fus encore une fois surprise par la vue de mon visage dans la glace: il n'avait rien à voir avec mes décombres. Ce n'était pas un visage de vaincu. Marqué par la fatigue, mais au fond des yeux il restait encore quelque chose. Je ne dis pas : quelque chose d'invincible. Et pourtant, peut-être y a-t-il invincibilité. Les hommes oublient toujours que ce qu'ils vivent n'est pas mortel."
Author: Romain Gary
144. "Non tentarmi, il mio cuore è fragileConsumato, ferito. BatteA fatica per me, non può batter per dueScegli bene le parole tueUna sola e si potrebbe spezzareNon voglio più amare, ricordaloTroppo amore ho voluto sprecareMi è caduto a terra, si è rottoParla pure, ripara ed incollaIl mio fauno non corre, barcollaPrega le ninfe che gli stanno intorno:"Non scappate da me così in fretta"Ma le ninfe ridono e fuggonoEd è giusto. E' la loro vendetta."
Author: Stefano Benni
145. "Number two, we're going to play with a lot of effort. Our guys are going to be in such good shape that fatigue is not going to be a problem. We're going to play with full effort from snap to whistle on every play the entire game."
Author: Steve Spurrier
146. "No real reason for the lack of sleep, it's a disadvantage of rotating shifts that every so often your body clock just throws up it's hands in despair and goes to sulk behind the sofa – leaving you suffering insomnia and/or intense fatigue."
Author: Tom Reynolds
147. "We will simply say here that, as a means of contrast with the sublime, the grotesque is, in our view, the richest source that nature can offer art. Rubens so understood it, doubtless, when it pleased him to introduce the hideous features of a court dwarf amid his exhibitions of royal magnificence, coronations and splendid ceremonial.The universal beauty which the ancients solemnly laid upon everything, is not without monotony; the same impression repeated again and again may prove fatiguing at last. Sublime upon sublime scarcely presents a contrast, and we need a little rest from everything, even the beautiful.On the other hand, the grotesque seems to be a halting-place, a mean term, a starting-point whence one rises toward the beautiful with a fresher and keener perception. The salamander gives relief to the water-sprite; the gnome heightens the charm of the sylph."
Author: Victor Hugo
148. "Per tutti questi secoli le donne hano avuto la funzione di specchi, dal potere magico e delizioso di riflettere raddoppiata la figura dell'uomo. [...]Perciò Napoleone e Mussolini insistono tanto enfaticamente sull'inferiorità delle donne, perché se esse non fossero inferiori cesserebbero di ingrandire loro. Questo serve in parte a spiegare la necessità che gli uomini spesso sentono delle donne. E serve a spiegare come li fa sentire inquieti la critica femminile; come a lei sia impossibile dir loro che il libro è brutto o il quadro difettoso, o cose del genere, senza provocare assai più dolore e suscitare assai più rabbia di quanta potrebbe suscitarne un uomo con la stessa critica. Perché se la donna comincia a dire la verità, la figura nello specchio rimpicciolisce; l'uomo diventa meno adatto alla vita."
Author: Virginia Woolf
149. "Düssel planda kadin son derece önemlidir; gerçek yasamda ise tümüyle önemsiz. Siiri bir bastan öbür basa kaplar; tarihte ise hiç görülmez. Kurmaca yazinda krallarin ve fatihlerin yasamlarina hükmeder; gerçek yasamda ailesinin parmagina bir yüzük geçirdigi herhangi bir oglanin kölesidir. Kurmaca yazinda en esin dolu sözler, en derin düsünceler onun dudaklarindan dökülür; günlük yasamda hemen hemen hiç okuyup yazamaz ve kocasinin malidir. Tarih kadindan hemen hemen hiç söz etmez."
Author: Virginia Woolf
150. "Fatigue is the safest sleeping draught."
Author: Virginia Woolf
