Author: Bernard Cornwell
2. "Al tempo stesso mi chiedo, e cominciai a chiedermelo già allora: ma cosa doveva e deve farsene, la mia generazione di nati dopo, delle informazioni sulle atrocità dello sterminio degli ebrei? Noi non dobbiamo pensare di poter comprendere ciò che è incomprensibile, non possiamo comparare ciò che è incomparabile, non possiamo indagare, perché chi indaga sulle atrocità, anche se non le mette in discussione, ne fa comunque un oggetto di comunicazione e non ottiene che qualcosa di fronte a cui può solo ammutolire per l'orrore, la colpa e la vergogna. Dobbiamo solo ammutolire per l'orrore, la colpa e la vergogna? A quale scopo? No, non è che l'ardore della rielaborazione e lo zero di far luce, con cui avevo partecipato seminario, fossero andati perduti durante il dibattimento. Ma che solo pochi venissero condannati e puniti e che noi, la generazione venuta dopo, ci ritrovassimo ammutoliti dall'orrore, dalla colpa e dalla vergogna: era giusto che fosse così?"
Author: Bernhard Schlink

5. "I claim that this bookless library is a dream, a hallucination of on-line addicts; network neophytes, and library-automation insiders...Instead, I suspect computers will deviously chew away at libraries from the inside. They'll eat up book budgets and require librarians that are more comfortable with computers than with children and scholars. Libraries will become adept at supplying the public with fast, low-quality information. The result won't be a library without books--it'll be a library without value."
Author: Clifford Stoll

Dar n-am plîns niciodata, fiindca lacrimile s-au transformat în gînduri. Si nu sînt gîndurile acestea tot atîta de amare ca lacrimile?"
Author: Emil Cioran

Author: Haruki Murakami
18. "The picture had no flourishes, but she liked its lowness of tone and the atmosphere of summer twilight that pervaded it. It spoke of the kind of personal issue that touched her most nearly; of the choice between objects, subjects, contacts—what might she call them?—of a thin and those of a rich association; of a lonely, studious life in a lovely land; of an old sorrow that sometimes ached to-day; of a feeling of pride that was perhaps exaggerated, but that had an element of nobleness; of a care for beauty and perfection so natural and so cultivated together that the career appeared to stretch beneath it in the disposed vistas and with the ranges of steps and terraces and fountains of a formal Italian garden—allowing only for arid places freshened by the natural dews of a quaint half-anxious, half-helpless fatherhood."
Author: Henry James
19. "...a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention..."
Author: Herbert A. Simon
20. "To a thoughtful biographer, [Ebling Mis's house] was "the symbolization of a retreat from a non-academic reality", a society columnist gushed silkily at its "frightfully masculine atmosphere of careless disorder", a University Ph.D called it brusquely, "bookish, but unorganized", a non-university friend said, "good for a drink anytime and you can put your feet on the sofa", and a breezy newsweekly broadcast, that went in for color, spoke of the "rooky, down-to-earth, no-nonsense living quarters of blaspheming, Leftish, balding Ebling Mis". To Bayta, who thought of no audience but herself at the moment, and who had the advantage of first-hand information, it was merely sloppy."
Author: Isaac Asimov
21. "A surfeit of information often hides an untruth," he said, with annoying clarity."
Author: Jasper Fforde
22. "Entonces tendrás que leer de otra manera, Cómo, No sirve la misma forma para todos, cada uno inventa la suya, la suya propia, hay quien se pasa la vida entera leyendo sin conseguir nunca ir más allá de la lectura, se quedan pegados a la página, no entienden que las palabras son sólo piedras puestas atravesando la corriente de un río, si están allí es para que podamos llegar a la otra margen, la otra margen es lo que importa."
Author: José Saramago
23. "We believe that worship is far more than prayer and preaching and gospel performance. The supreme act of worship is to keep the commandments, to follow in the footsteps of the Son of God, to do ever those things that please Him. It is one thing to give lip service to the Lord; it is quite another to respect and honor His will by following the example He has set for us."
Author: Joseph Fielding Smith
24. "Since signing with Universal, I have been working closely with Gary Ross, the director, producer and screenwriter. We have spent many hours on the phone, and I've been sending him information and items that have been useful to the writing process."
Author: Laura Hillenbrand
25. "O conhecimento tem a ver com a evolução da técnica e das ciências, e a cultura é algo anterior ao conhecimento, uma propensão do espírito, uma sensibilidade e um cultivo da forma que dá sentido e orientação aos conhecimentos."
Author: Mario Vargas Llosa
26. "You have your structure, but within it, it gets fuller and you can highlight other parts of the performance."
Author: Marisa Tomei
27. "I love the performance of a craft, whether it is modest or mean-spirited, yet I walk away when discussions of it begin - as if one should ask a gravedigger what brand of shovel he uses or whether he prefers to work at noon or in moonlight. I am interested only in the care taken, and those secret rehearsals behind it. Even if I do not understand fully what is taking place."
Author: Michael Ondaatje
28. "Todos necesitamos que alguien nos mire. Sería posible dividirnos en cuatro categorías, según el tipo de mirada bajo la cual queremos vivir:La primera categoría anhela la mirada de una cantidad infinita de ojos anónimos, o dicho de otro modo, la mirada del público.La segunda categoría la forman los que necesitan para vivir la mirada de muchos ojos conocidos. Estos son los incansables organizadores de cócteles y cenas.Luego está la tercera categoría, los que necesitan de la mirada de la persona amada.Y hay también una cuarta categoría, la más preciada, la de quienes viven bajo la mirada imaginaria de personas ausentes. Son los soñadores."
Author: Milan Kundera
29. "Whatever is deeply, essentially female--the life in a woman's expression, the feel of her flesh, the shape of her breasts, the transformations after childbirth of her skin--is being reclassified as ugly, and ugliness as disease. These qualities are about an intensification of female power, which explains why they are being recast as a diminution of power. At least a third of a woman's life is marked with aging; about a third of her body is made of fat. Both symbols are being transformed into operable condition--so that women will only feel healthy if we are two thirds of the women we could be. How can an "ideal" be about women if it is defined as how much of a female sexual characteristic does not exist on the woman's body, and how much of a female life does not show on her face?"
Author: Naomi Wolf
30. "The criminal misuse of time was pointing out the mistakes. Catching them?noticing them?that was essential. If you did not in your own mind distinguish between useful and erroneous information, then you were not learning at all, you were merely replacing ignorance with false belief, which was no improvement. The part of the man's statement that was true, however, was about the uselessness of speaking up. If I know that the teacher is wrong, and say nothing, then I remain the only one who knows, and that gives me an advantage over those who believe the teacher."
Author: Orson Scott Card
31. "Film school is a complete con, because the information is there if you want it."
Author: Paul Thomas Anderson
32. "Monica's eyes were fierce and fiery, but she didn't move, and after a second she turned and ran up the steps to the second floor, where her formally dressed friends were huddled like the cast of Survivor: Abercrombie & Fitch Island."
Author: Rachel Caine
33. "Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, we are enough."
Author: Ram Dass
34. "The charged atmosphere made every little thing stand out as a performance, a movement distinct and vastly important. It was one of those hypersensitive moments when all your automatic movements, however long established, however habitual, become separate acts of will. You are like a man learning to walk after polio. You take nothing for granted, absolutely nothing at all."
Author: Raymond Chandler
35. "If we don't learn from each others experience, we are forced to listen to people who have economic reasons to withhold critical information from us all. The other option is to wait for the government to tell us what their financial supporters want us to know."
Author: Richard Diaz
36. "Information may travel at light speed, but meaning spreads at the speed of dark."
Author: Richard Powers
37. "We're all born strangers to ourselves and each other, and we're seldom formally introduced."
Author: Robert Charles Wilson
38. "I have no formal training as a writer at all, not even a single English class in college."
Author: Scott Westerfeld
39. "Connecting in sips may work for gathering discreet bits of information, they may work for saying, "I'm thinking about you," or even for saying, "I love you," but they don't really work for learning about each other, for really coming to know and understand each other. And we use conversations with each other to learn how to have conversations with ourselves. So a flight from conversation can really matter because it can compromise our capacity for self-reflection. For kids growing up, that skill is the bedrock of development."
Author: Sherry Turkle
40. "We know, but cannot grasp, that above and below, beyond the limits of perception or imagination, thousands of millions of simultaneous transformations are at work, interlinked like a musical score by mathematical counterpoint...a symphony...but we lack the ears to hear it."
Author: Stanisław Lem
41. "When you read and understand a poem, comprehending its rich and formal meanings, then you master chaos a little."
Author: Stephen Spender
42. "Seguramente, morir en lugar de otra persona, alguien a quien se ama, era una buena forma de acabar. Incluso noble. Eso debería contar algo."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
43. "Peeta y yo volvemos a unirnos. Aún hay momentos donde él aprieta la partetrasera de la silla y se sostiene hasta que los recuerdos se han terminado. Yodespierto gritando de pesadillas sobre mutos y niños perdidos. Pero sus brazosestán ahí para confortarme. Y finalmente sus labios. En la noche en que siento esa cosa de nuevo, el hambre que me controló en la playa, sé que esto habría pasado de todas formas. Que lo que necesito para sobrevivir no es el fuego de Gale, encendido por la rabia y el odio. Tengo bastante fuego en mí misma. Lo que necesito es el diente de león en la primavera. El amarillo brillante que significa renacer en vez de destrucción. La promesa de que la vida puede continuar, sin importar lo malo de nuestras pérdidas. Que puede ser buena de nuevo. Y sólo Peeta puede darme eso.Así que después, cuando él susurra:?Tú me amas. ¿Real o no real?Le digo:?Real."
Author: Suzanne Collins
44. "The two words 'information' and 'communication' are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through."
Author: Sydney J. Harris
45. "For the employee, the goal is to have full access to necessary information and as much independent decision-making ability as possible. For the entrepreneur, the goal is to grant as much information and independent decision-making ability to employees or contractors as possible."
Author: Timothy Ferriss
46. "I'm inspired every time I see a role I'd like to play, an actor turn in a well crafted performance, a story I'd like to tell, direct or produce."
Author: T'Keyah Crystal Keymah

"What is it about wearing a tuxedo or that little black dress, that makes us feel confident, beautiful, splendid, even invincible?We put on formal wear and suddenly we become extraordinary.On the days when you feel low and invisible, why not try this on for size: imagine you are wearing a fantastic tailored tuxedo or a stunning formal gown.And then proceed with your day."
Author: Vera Nazarian
48. "I actually think Bill Gates is conventionally smarter, even though it's a dumb word, but mental processing power - I've watched him use four different screens, process information, get to the right answer, boom boom boom."
Author: Walter Isaacson
49. "-Put on the lights there, now. Before we go any further here, has it ever occurred to any of you that all this is simply one grand misunderstanding? Since you're not here to learn anything, but to be taught so you can pass these tests, knowledge has to be organized so it can be taught, and it has to be reduced to information so it can be organized do you follow that? In other words this leads you to assume that organization is an inherent property of knowledge itself, and that disorder and chaos are simply irrelevant forces that threaten it from outside. In fact it's exactly the opposite. Order is simply a thin, perilous condition we try to impose on the basic reality of chaos..."
Author: William Gaddis
50. "For I am he am born to tame you, Kate; and bring you from a wild Kate to a Kate conformable as other household Kates."
Author: William Shakespeare
