1. "You have to stay safe, Scar. Maybe it's your bits in a dress and maybe it's just you, but I'm awful fond of something in there. So don't get killed."
Author: A.C. Gaughen
2. "Nell'esperienza assurda, la sofferenza è individuale. A prinicipiare dal moto di rivolta, essa ha coscienza di essere collettiva, è avventura di tutti. Il primo progresso di uno spirito intimamente straniato sta dunque nel riconoscere che questo suo sentirsi straniero, lo condivide con tutti gli uomini, e che la realtà umana, nella sua totalità, soffre di questa distanza rispetto a se stessa e al mondo. Il male che un uomo solo provava diviene peste collettiva. In quella che è la nostra prova quotidiana, la rivolta svolge la stessa funzione del "cogito" nell'ordine del pensiero: è la prima evidenza. Ma questa evidenza trae l'individuo dalla sua solitudine. È un luogo comune che fonda su tutti gli uomini il proprio valore. Mi rivolto, dunque siamo."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "In cio', ci allineiamo, non si sa quanto consapevoli, a un'idea di fondo, squisitamente barbara, che in teoria non condividiamo, ma in realta' pratichiamo senza nessuna difficolta': il senso delle cose non alberga in un loro tratto originario e autentico, ma nella traccia che da esse sprigiona quando entrano in connessione con altri pezzi di mondo."
Author: Alessandro Baricco

5. "Ivanov: I am a bad, pathetic and worthless individual. One needs to be pathetic, too, worn out and drained by drink, like Pasha, to be still fond of me and to respect me. My God, how I despise myself! I so deeply loathe my voice, my walk, my hands, these clothes, my thoughts. Well, isn't that funny, isn't that shocking? Less than a year ago I was healthy and strong, I was cheerful, tireless, passionate, I worked with these very hands, I could speak to move even Philistines to tears, I could cry when I saw grief, I became indignant when I encountered evil. I knew inspiration, I knew the charm and poetry of quiet nights when from dusk to dawn you sit at your desk or indulge you mind with dreams. I believed, I looked into the future as into the eyes of my own mother... And now, my God, I am exhausted, I do not believe, I spend my days and nights in idleness."
Author: Anton Chekhov
6. "Tu sais, père, la douleur, soit elle arrive à fondre et à s'écouler par les yeux, soit elle devient tranchante comme une lame et jaillit de la bouche, soit elle se transforme en bombe à l'intérieur, une bombe qui explose un beau jour et qui te fait exploser."
Author: Atiq Rahimi

Author: Diego Marani

"You are tired,(I think)Of the always puzzle of living and doing;And so am I.Come with me, then,And we'll leave it far and far away—(Only you and I, understand!)You have played,(I think)And broke the toys you were fondest of,And are a little tired now;Tired of things that break, and—Just tired.So am I.But I come with a dream in my eyes tonight,And knock with a rose at the hopeless gate of your heart—Open to me!For I will show you the places Nobody knows,And, if you like,The perfect places of Sleep.Ah, come with me!I'll blow you that wonderful bubble, the moon,That floats forever and a day;I'll sing you the jacinth songOf the probable stars;I will attempt the unstartled steppes of dream,Until I find the Only Flower,Which shall keep (I think) your little heartWhile the moon comes out of the sea."
Author: E.E. Cummings
12. "Come Simone Weil ha espresso così meravigliosamente: "Le stesse parole (ad esempio, un uomo dice alla moglie "ti amo") possono essere banali e straordinarie, secondo come sono dette.E il modo di pende dalla profondità di un essere umano, dalla quale scaturiscono senza che la volontà sia in grado di fare nulla. E' con un accordo meraviglioso esse raggiungono in lui forma ed espressione. Così colui che sente può discernere, se ha potere di discernimento, ciò che è il valore del mondo"."

"Il y a, à Venise, trois lieux magiques et secrets : l'un dans la "rue de l'amour des amis", le deuxième près du "pont des merveilles" et le troisième dans le "sentier des marranes", près de San Geremia, dans le vieux ghetto. Quand les Vénitiens - parfois ce sont les Maltais - sont fatigués des autorités, ils vont dans ces lieux secrets et, ouvrant les portes au fond de ces cours, ils s'en vont pour toujours vers des pays merveilleux et vers d'autres histoires..."

I advise everybody who is going to build, to build a cottage."

24. "Musical instruments in celebrating the praises of God would be no more suitable than the burning of incense, the lighting of lamps, and the restoration of the other shadows of the law. The Papists therefore, have foolishly borrowed, this, as well as many other things, from the Jews. Men who are fond of outward pomp may delight in that noise; but the simplicity which God recommends to us by the apostles is far more pleasing to him. Paul allows us to bless God in the public assembly of the saints, only in a known tongue (1 Corinthians 14:16) What shall we then say of chanting, which fills the ears with nothing but an empty sound?"
Author: John Calvin

26. "There is no one here, said the girl with dark glasses, and burst into tears leaning against the door, her head on her crossed forearms, as if her with her whole body she were deperately imploring pity, if we did not have enough experience of how complicated the human spirit can be we would be surprised that she should be so fond of her parents as to indulge in these demonstrations of sorrow, a girl so free in her behaviour, but not far away is someone who has already affirmed that there does not exist nor ever has existed any contradiction between the one and the other."
Author: José Saramago
27. "Había escuchado cada palabra de lo que ella había dicho,, pero yo sólo sabía una cosa.Yo estaba metido hasta el fondo."

Author: Lemony Snicket

Anger leads to bewilderment, bewilderment to loss of memory of true Self, and by that intelligence is destroyed, and with the destruction of intelligence he perishes."
Author: Lord Krishna
32. "The need is not really for more brains, the need is now for a gentler, a more tolerant people than those who won for us against the ice, the tiger and the bear. The hand that hefted the ax, out of some old blind allegiance to the past fondles the machine gun as lovingly. It is a habit man will have to break to survive, but the roots go very deep."
Author: Loren Eiseley

A shadow of your True self.And who knows the future, except God, the great 'I Am'? So, why not create fond memories today?"
Author: Mac MacKenzie
35. "I am fond of the sound of horses in the night. The lifting of feet. Stamping. The clicking of their iron shoes against rock. They mouth one anothers withers and rear and squeal and whirl and shuffle and cough and stand and snort. There is the combined rumblings of each individual gut. They sound larger than they are. The air tastes of horses, ripples as though come alive with their good-hearted strength and stamina."
Author: Mark Spragg
36. "Sur quelque préférence une estime se fonde,Et c'est n'estimer rien qu'estimer tout le monde."
Author: Molière
37. "Il en est toujours ainsi des natures subtiles et raffinées. Il faut que leurs passions ploient ou broient, qu'elles choisissent de tuer ou de mourir. Seules ont la vie longue les peines légères et les légères amours. Les amours et les peines profondes succombent à leur propre plénitude."

40. "He looks at me fondly. I know that the look doesn't have love in it. Or even lust. I still wonder about love or sex or lust. I saw lust in his eyes when he looked at that girl on the sidewalk … I love him, anyway. I love him because he's kind to me and he doesn't want my body, doesn't want to feel me or touch me, like all the others … and maybe after a while he might look at me with more than fondness, will kiss me sweetly, tenderly."
Author: Robert Cormier

Author: Stephen R. Donaldson
44. "To be lost and forgotten-to be abandoned-is a shared and terrible fear, just as our fondest hope, as we grow older, is that we might leave some parts of us behind in the hearts of those we love and in that way live on."
Author: Stewart O'Nan
45. "Together we agree that there are few tableaus more pathetic than a woman poring over a plethora of self-help books, while in a small café across town her husband is sharing a bottle of Pouilly-Fuissé and fettucini Alfredo with a beautiful woman, fondling her fishnet knee and making careful plans to escape his life."
Author: Suzanne Finnamore
46. "Why do women want to dress like men when they're fortunate enough to be women? Why lose femininity, which is one of our greatest charms? We get more accomplished by being charming than we would be flaunting around in pants and smoking. I'm very fond of men. I think they are wonderful creatures. I love them dearly. But I don't want to look like one. When women gave up their long skirts, they made a grave error…"
Author: Tasha Tudor

49. "The transept belfry and the two towers were to him three great cages, the birds in which, taught by him, would sing for him alone. Yet it was these same bells which had made him deaf; but mothers are often fondest of the child who has made them suffer most."
