Every object be it animated or non-animated is an image!!"

Ein Gelächter oder eine schmerzliche Scham. Und ebendas soll der Mensch für den Übermenschen sein: ein Gelächter oder eine schmerzliche Scham.

That's what love is about, Roger. It's when a woman drives all lucid thought from your head; when you are unable to contrive romantic stratagems, and the usual manipulations fail you; when all your carefully laid plans have no meaning and all you can do is stand mute in her presence.

Or they thought their own environment couldn't supply them with. So they gave up looking. They gave it up before they ever really even got started."
Author: J.D. Salinger

You realize that your body can do things that you never imagined. But there are times when you don't think you can go on, and that's when your brother is there to lift you up and push you forward. He yells encouragement when the drill sergeant's yelling obscenities. You know that if you're ever caught by the enemy, your brothers will never stop looking for you. If you're hurt they'll help heal you. The Corps is a unit of many, not one, but dozens, thousands even, who have your back. You can smite one Marine, but a thousand will rose up to avenge him."

"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

31. "Few beings have ever been so impregnated, pierced to the core, by the conviction of the absolute futility of human aspiration. The universe is nothing but a furtive arrangement of elementary particles. A figure in transition toward chaos. That is what will finally prevail. The human race will disappear. Other races in turn will appear and disappear. The skies will be glacial and empty, traversed by the feeble light of half-dead stars. These too will disappear. Everything will disappear. And human actions are as free and as stripped of meaning as the unfettered movements of the elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, sentiments? Pure ‘Victorian fictions.' All that exists is egotism. Cold, intact, and radiant."
Author: Michel Houellebecq

Maar ze wist dat ze hun niet kon uitleggen. Verlegen bracht ze het gesprek op een ander onderwerp."
Author: Milan Kundera

36. "Realmente não dá para entender como é que um sujeito faz uma bobagem dessas. So há uma explicação: Destino. Antes da gente nascer, alguém, sei lá quem, talvez Deus, Deus define direitinho como é que vai foder a sua vida. É isso. Era minha teoria. Deus só pensa no homem quando tem que decidir como é que vai destruí-lo."
Author: Patrícia Melo

38. "Wenn die Leute über denselben Spaß lachen oder so manchen alten Scherz gemeinsam haben, der durch die Zeit nicht verblaßt und die Gewohnheit nicht flau wird, so wird das — mit Verlaub gesagt — eine bessere Vorbereitung für das gemein­schaftliche Leben sein, als so manche Dinge, die in der Welt einen edleren Klang haben. Man kann, wenn man will, Kant für sich allein lesen, aber einen Scherz muß man mit jemandem teilen."

46. "It is not then the existence or the non-existence, of the persons that I trouble myself about; it is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend.

It gives an account of a young woman engaged to be married, and while under this engagement, she is, to speak plain language, debauched by a ghost."
Author: Thomas Paine

A fragilidade e transitoriedade dos laços pode ser um preço inevitável do direito de os indivíduos perseguirem seus objetivos individuais, mas não pode deixar de ser, simultaneamente, um obstáculo dos mais formidáveis para perseguir eficazmente esses objetivos -- e para a coragem necessária para persegui-los."
Author: Zygmunt Bauman
