4. "Epska svijest je kao sifilis - ne možete je se osloboditi. Ona covjeka cini erektiranim i usmjerava ga ka herojstvu, a herojstvo i jeste - erektiranost prema smrti. Ali ga, kao i u slucaju sifilisa, na koncu upravo ta erektiranost košta života....Erekcija je savršena metafora herojstva - mozak je tada stavljen van funkcije jer sva krv hita drugdje; i kao što se želi prodrijeti u ženu, hita se da se penetrira u smrt. Kasnije sve splasne - u miru utrobe mlohave i vlažne zemlje, tamo gdje smo se probili, kriknuli, prosuli sjeme i krv i napokon pali."
Author: Andrej Nikolaidis

Author: Anne Lamott
6. "When I began writing The Night Bookmobile, it was a story about a woman's secret life as a reader. As I worked it also became a story about the claims that books place on their readers, the imbalance between our inner and outer lives, a cautionary tale of the seductions of the written word. It became a vision of the afterlife as a library, of heaven as a funky old camper filled with everything you've ever read. What is this heaven? What is it we desire from the hours, weeks, lifetimes we devote to books? What would you sacrifice to sit in that comfy chair with perfect light for an afternoon in eternity, reading the perfect book, forever?"
Author: Audrey Niffenegger
7. "Josh Funk and Hunter Fraser: we haven't been in touch in years, but you made me feel like the funniest kid in the world.

Author: B.J. Novak
8. "So?" I asked Vee. "What's the verdict?""The verdict? My doctor is a lard-arse. Closely resembles an Oompa-Loompa. Don't give me your severe look. Last time he came in, he broke into the Funky Chicken. And he's forever eating chocolate. Mostly chocolate animals. You know the solid chocolate bunnies they're selling for Easter? That'swhat the Oompa-Loompa ate for dinner. Had a chocolate duck at lunch with a side of yellow Peeps."
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick

10. "Zweifellos kommt keine demokratische Republik ohne Vertrauen in ihre gewählten Repräsentanten und in das Funktionieren ihrer Institutionen aus. Vertrauen aber wird im Selbstverständnis eines republikanischen Staatswesens stets komplementär zu Partizipation gedacht; sobald es an deren Stelle tritt, gerät die Architektur jeder Demokratie aus den Fugen. […] Macht voraussetzungslos und im Vertrauen auf die guten Absichten der Machthaber zu delegieren, lässt dem Ehrgeiz weniger auf Kosten aller freie Bahn."
Author: Bernd Greiner

12. "For me, if I have writer's block it means I know that what I am writing is not working quite right and I need to go back and fix what is not right. And once I do that I can write onward. Sometimes writer's block is just I'm in a funk that day and my writing just isn't working. In that case I write anyway and then throw it away. You can always write. Writer's block is 'I can't write because what I'm writing is crap."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
13. "An odd by-product of my loss is that I'm aware of being an embarrassment to everyone I meet. At work, at the club, in the street, I see people, as they approach me, trying to make up their minds whether they'll ‘say something about it' or not. I hate it if they do, and if they don't. Some funk it altogether. R. has been avoiding me for a week. I like best the well brought-up young men, almost boys, who walk up to me as if I were a dentist, turn very red, get it over, and then edge away to the bar as quickly as they decently can. Perhaps the bereaved ought to be isolated in special settlements like lepers."
Author: C.S. Lewis

Author: Daniel Pinchbeck

You walk these streets, black and funky and cold, and there's not really a living ass to talk to, and there's nothing shaking, and there's no way of getting it out- that storm inside. You can't talk it and you can't make love with it, and when you finally try to get with it and play it, you realize nobody's listening. So you've got to listen. You got to find a way to listen."
Author: James Baldwin
