1. "I know positively - yes Rieux I can say I know the world inside out as no one on earth is free from it. And I know too that we must keep endless watch on ourselves lest in careless moment we breathe in somebody's face and fasten the infection on him. What's natural is the microbe. All the rest- health integrity purity if you like - is a product of the human will of vigilance that must never falter. The good man the man who infects hardly anyone is the man who has the fewest lapses of attention. And it needs tremendous will-power a never ending tension of the mind to avoid such lapses. Yes Rieux it's a wearying business being plague-stricken. But it's still more wearying to refuse to be it. That's why everybody in the world today looks so tired everyone is more or less sick of plague. But that is also why some of us who want to get the plague out of their systems feel such desperate weariness a weariness from which nothing remains to set us free except death."
Author: Albert Camus

Author: Andrea Hirata

Author: Antonio Tabucchi
4. "He was a horse of goodly countenance, rather expressive of vigilance than fire; though an unnatural appearance of fierceness was thrown into it by the loss of his ears, which had been cropped pretty close to his head."
Author: Augustus Baldwin Longstreet
5. "Chess teaches foresight, by having to plan ahead; vigilance, by having to keep watch over the whole chess board; caution, by having to restrain ourselves from making hasty moves; and finally, we learn from chess the greatest maxim in life - that even when everything seems to be going badly for us we should not lose heart, but always hoping for a change for the better, steadfastly continue searching for the solutions to our problems."
Author: Benjamin Franklin
6. "The price of liberty is labor as well as vigilance."
Author: Carl Scovel
7. "Mais les vrais voyageurs sont ceux-là seuls qui partentPour partir; coeurs légers, semblables aux ballons,De leur fatalité jamais ils ne s'écartent,Et, sans savoir pourquoi, disent toujours: Allons!Ceux-là dont les désirs ont la forme des nues,Et qui rêvent, ainsi qu'un conscrit le canon,De vastes voluptés, changeantes, inconnues,Et dont l'esprit humain n'a jamais su le nom!"[...]"Amer savoir, celui qu'on tire du voyage!Le monde, monotone et petit, aujourd'hui,Hier, demain, toujours, nous fait voir notre image:Une oasis d'horreur dans un désert d'ennui!Faut-il partir? rester? Si tu peux rester, reste;Pars, s'il le faut. L'un court, et l'autre se tapitPour tromper l'ennemi vigilant et funeste,Le Temps! Il est, hélas! des coureurs sans répit,Comme le Juif errant et comme les apôtres,À qui rien ne suffit, ni wagon ni vaisseau,Pour fuir ce rétiaire infâme; il en est d'autresQui savent le tuer sans quitter leur berceau."
Author: Charles Baudelaire
8. "If you aren't vigilant, if you aren't daily humbling yourself before Him, seeking His face, discerning His timing, operating under the Spirit's control, you may push and shove and force your way prematurely into that place where God wanted you, but you will not have arrived in His own time."
Author: Charles R. Swindoll
9. "Never neglect details. When everyone's mind is dulled or distracted the leader must be doubly vigilant."
Author: Colin Powell
10. "Mood evidently affects the operation of System 1: when we are uncomfortable and unhappy, we lose touch with our intuition. These findings add to the growing evidence that good mood, intuition, creativity, gullibility, and increased reliance on System 1 form a cluster. At the other pole, sadness, vigilance, suspicion, an analytic approach, and increased effort also go together. A happy mood loosens the control of System 2 over performance: when in a good mood, people become more intuitive and more creative but also less vigilant and more prone to logical errors."
Author: Daniel Kahneman
11. "Inilah aku, ya Allah. Telah datang memenuhi panggilan-Mu di tempat yang mulia ini untuk mengharap anugerah dari sisi-Mu, maka jangan Engkau sia-siakan harapanku"
Author: Dian Nafi
12. "Ya Allah, aku hendak datang memenuhi panggilanMu, mudahkanlah segala urusanku"
Author: Dian Nafi
13. "Love is the great intangible. In our nightmares, we can create beasts out of pure emotion. Hate stalks the streets with dripping fangs, fear flies down narrow alleyways on leather wings, and jealousy spins sticky webs across the sky. In daydreams, we can maneuver with poise, foiling an opponent, scoring high on fields of glory while crowds cheer, cutting fast to the heart of an adventure. But what dream state is love? Frantic and serene, vigilant and calm, wrung-out and fortified, explosive and sedate –love commands a vast army of moods. Hoping for victory, limping from the latest skirmish, lovers enter the arena once again. Sitting still, we are as daring as gladiators."
Author: Diane Ackerman
14. "Seorang samurai tidak bekerja sekadar untuk mengisi perut. Dia bukan budak makanan. Dia hidup untuk memenuhi panggilannya, untuk kewajiban dan pengabdian. Makanan hanyalah tambahan, sebuah berkah dari surga. Jangan menjadi laki-laki yang, karena terlalu sibuk mencari makan, menghabiskan hidupnya dalam kebimbangan."
Author: Eiji Yoshikawa
15. "At the street corner, a one-storey house built of freestone, but repulsively decrepit and filthy, seemed to command the entrance, like a gaol. And here, indeed, lived La Méchain, like a vigilant proprietess, ever on the watch, exploiting in person her little population of starving tenants."
Author: Émile Zola
16. "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
17. "In all the houses keys to memorizing objects and feelings had been written. But the system demanded so much vigilance and moral strength that many succumbed to the spell of an imaginary reality, one invented by themselves, which was less practical for them but more comforting."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
18. "We are redeemed one man at a time. There is no family pass ticket or park hopping pass to life. One ticket — one at a time. Man doesn't vanquish hatred or bigotry. The target keeps moving. From the blacks to the Irish; atheists to Christians. But as always there are a few leaders: Ben Franklin, John Quincy Adams, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abraham Lincoln, Fredrick Douglas, Booker T Washington, Ghandi and Martin Luther King. They know that the march toward freedom never ends, man must be ever vigilant and pray less with his lips and more with his legs."
Author: Glenn Beck
19. "Keprihatinan, seperti halnya kebanggaan, juga kecemasan, seperti halnya optimisme—semua itu adalah pertanda rasa ikut memiliki. Atau rasa terpanggil. Barangkali karena tanah air memang bukan cuma sepotong geografi dan selintas sejarah. Barangkali karena tanah air adalah juga sebuah panggilan"
Author: Goenawan Mohamad
20. "Cross a man and you struggle, one of you wins, you adjust and go on - or you lie there dead. Cross a woman and the universe is changed, once again, for cold anger requires an eternal vigilance in all matters of slight and offense"
Author: Gregory Maguire
21. "Panggilan 'ayah' dari anak-anak, ketika si buruh pulang dari pekerjaannya, adalah ubat duka dari dampratan majikan di kantor. Suara 'ayah' dari anak-anak yang berdiri di pintu, itulah yang menyebabkan telinga menjadi tebal, walaupun gaji kecil. Suara 'ayah' dari anak-anak, itulah urat tunggang dan pucuk bulat bagi peripenghidupan manusia."
Author: Hamka
22. "Like the bat, the Sufi is asleep to 'things of the day' - the familiar struggle for existence which the ordinary man finds all-important - and vigilant while others are asleep. In other words, he keeps awake the spiritual attention dormant in others. That 'mankind sleeps in a nightmare of unfulfillment' is a commonplace of Sufi literature"
Author: Idries Shah
23. "This is why you don't call the police. Or Preternatural Control. No matter what. Ever. If I'd doubted that rule--and I was fairly sure I never had--I certainly never would have again. My skin itched just talking to the authorities....The police department had more than a few open cases with my name on them--figuratively, and I had no desire to make that literal [where they connected me to] the vigilante responsible for dozens of area beastie slayings...."
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
24. "Me?" he said in some surprise. "I won't be dancing! It's the bridal dance. The bride and groom dance alone!"For one circuit of the room," she told him. "After which they are joined by the best man and first bridesmaid, then by the groomsman and the second bridesmaid."Will reacted as he had been stung. He leaned over to speak across Jenny on his left, to Gilan.Gil! Did you know we have to dance?" he asked. Gilan nodded enthusiastically.Oh yes indeed. Jenny and I have been practicing for the past three days, haven't we, Jen?"Jenny looked up at him adoringly and nodded. Jenny was in love. Gilan was tall, dashing, good-looking, charming and very ammusing. Plus he was cloaked in the mystery and romance tat came with being a Ranger. Jenny had only ever known one ranger and that had been grim-faced, gray-bearded Halt."
Author: John Flanagan
25. "Horace, fit, and athletic and light on his feet, gave their guards the fewest opportunities to beat him, although on one occasion an angry Tualaghi, furious that Horace misunderstood an order to kneel, slashed his dagger across the young man's face, opening a thin, shallow cut on his right cheek. The wound was superficial but as Evanlyn treated it that evening, Horace shamelessly pretended that it was more painful than it really was. He enjoyed the touch of her ministering hands. Halt and Gilan, bruised and weary, watched as she cleaned the wound and gently pated it dry. Horace did a wonderful job of pretending to bear great pain with stoic bravery. Halt shook his head in disgust."What faker," he said to Gilan. The younger Ranger nodded."Yes. He's really making a meal of it isn't he?" He paused, then added more ruefully, "Wish I'd thought of it first."
Author: John Flanagan
26. "You know, Gilan, sarcasm isn't the lowest form of wit. It's not even wit at all." -Halt"
Author: John Flanagan
27. "I think we're in good shape, but the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina is in some small way mitigated by the fact that we now have more people talking about it, thinking about it and working on it, so that we will be more vigilant and ready."
Author: John Hickenlooper
28. "I'd like to hope you end up a miserable, lonely woman. But actually, I hope you have children one day, Ellie Haworth. Then you'll know how it feels to be vulnerable. And to have to fight, to be constantly vigilant, just to make sure your children get to grow up with a father."
Author: Jojo Moyes
29. "Conspiracies and Crime, Murder and Mayhem, Vengeance and Valor –For the First. Time. Ever!Only In New York City –A Global Gathering of Like Minded Minds:OsamaCon !!!Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden??The shadowy Vigilante, the arch-criminal mastermind, the enemy of Western Civilization?Come and find out – if you dare!Be blown away – only at the First Annual OsamaCon, coming soon"
Author: Lavie Tidhar
30. "But knowing the difficulties didn't make Tuesday's lack of focus easier for me. When Tuesday was distracted, I felt unsure. In the years ahead, I learned to read his reactions. I knew when his mind was wandering, when he was merely interested in something (Squirrel! Urine-smelling tree!), and when he was alert to possible danger. Knowing Tuesday's mood calmed my mind, because I could trust his vigilance. Today, I can walk down the street distracted and carefree because I have faith Tuesday will alert me to danger. In those early months, before I'd learn to trust his instincts, Tuesday's greatest contribution was his presence. He was my point man, walking slightly ahead of me, symbolically leading the way. He was a buffer against the world, but also a diversion. If they were going to look at me, most people looked at Tuesday first, and that was a relief."
Author: Luis Carlos Montalván
31. "...Everything I had learned or assimilated from my parents I now regarded as unreliable, and needing to be rethought from scratch. In fact, I probably went further-I felt that everything my parents believed was by definition wrong, and that if I ever felt myself in agreement with my parents I should immediately recant. Everything... needed to be jettisoned. But in a way what they said wasn't the problem: what I was more worried about was the attitudes, prejudices, beliefs I might have picked up from them subconsciously or before I was old enough to even know what I was learning. Effectively, I had to question everything I believed, and never accept my own instincts. It required constant vigilance; it was intellectually exhausting."
Author: Lynn Barber
32. "I have no other passion to keep me in breath. What avarice, ambition, quarrels, law suits do for others who, like me, have no particular vocation, love would much more commodiously do; it would restore to me vigilance, sobriety, grace, and the care of my person; it would reassure my countenance, so that the grimaces of old age, those deformed and dismal looks, might not come to disgrace it; would again put me upon sound and wise studies, by which I might render myself more loved and esteemed, clearing my mind of the despair of itself and of its use, and redintegrating it to itself; would divert me from a thousand troublesome thoughts, a thousand melancholic humours that idleness and the ill posture of our health loads us withal at such an age; would warm again, in dreams at least, the blood that nature is abandoning; would hold up the chin, and a little stretch out the nerves, the vigour and gaiety of life of that poor man who is going full drive towards his ruin."
Author: Michel De Montaigne
33. "A new civil rights movement cannot be organized around the relics of the earlier system of control if it is to address meaningfully the racial realities of our time. Any racial justice movement, to be successful, must vigorously challenge the public consensus that underlies the prevailing system of control. Nooses, racial slurs, and overt bigotry are widely condemned by people across the political spectrum; they are understood to be remnants of the past, no longer reflective of the prevailing public consensus about race. Challenging these forms of racism is certainly necessary, as we must always remain vigilant, but it will do little to shake the foundations of the current system of control. The new caste system, unlike its predecessors, is officially colorblind. We must deal with it on its own terms."
Author: Michelle Alexander
34. "Given Ivan's size and power, we must remain vigilant."
Author: Mike Rogers
35. "Only later did I come to understand that to be a mother is to be an illusion. No matter how vigilant, in the end a mother can't protect her child - not from pain, or horror, or the nightmare of violence, from sealed trains moving rapidly in the wrong direction, the depravity of strangers, trapdoors, abysses, fires, cars in the rain, from chance."
Author: Nicole Krauss
36. "We should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe."
Author: Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
37. "Is there a more pitiable spectacle than that of a wife contending with others for that charm in her husband's sight which no philters and no prayers can renew when once it has fled forever?Women are so unwise. Love is like a bird's song beautiful and eloquent when heard in forest freedom, harsh and worthless in repetition when sung from behind prison bars.You cannot secure love by vigilance, by environment, by captivity. What use is it to keep the person of a man beside you if his soul be truant from you?"
Author: Ouida
38. "The battle, Sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, Sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable; and let it come! I repeat, Sir, let it come!"
Author: Patrick Henry
39. "Do you go see her?" "No," I said, refusing to acknowledge that I'd just seen Lissa last night. "That's not my life anymore." "Right. Your life is all about dangerous vigilante missions." "You wouldn't understand anything that isn't drinking, smoking, or womanizing." He shook his head. "You're the only one I want, Rose.""Well, you can keep feeling that way, but you're going to have to keep waiting." "Much longer?" He asked me."I don't know." Hope blossomed on Adrian's face. "That's the most optimistic thing you've told me so far."
Author: Richelle Mead
40. "Still other parents may embark on a behavior management program with an initial burst of enthusiasm, energy, and vigilance but become less enthusiastic, energetic, and vigilant over time. These parents often return to their old, familiar patterns of parenting."
Author: Ross W. Greene
41. "The candle of liberty has always been kept lit by a vigilant few."
Author: Russell Pearce
42. "Vigilando, laborando y meditando todas las cosas prosperan"
Author: Sallust
43. "Ketika Hitler mulai membuas maka kelompok Inge School berkata tidak. Mereka (pemuda-pemuda Jerman ini) punya keberanian untuk berkata "tidak". Mereka, walaupun masih muda, telah berani menentang pemimpin-pemimpin gang-gang bajingan, rezim Nazi yang semua identik. Bahwa mereka mati, bagiku bukan soal. Mereka telah memenuhi panggilan seorang pemikir. Tidak ada indahnya (dalam arti romantik) penghukuman mereka, tetapi apa yang lebih puitis selain bicara tentang kebenaran."
Author: Soe Hok Gie
44. "Punitive murder by the police and by vigilantes has existed in all societies at some point, and probably still exists in most."
Author: Teju Cole
45. "He watched her in the aisles: Molly, his pretty baseball wife, with her ceaseless vigilance for lumps, her insistence on quarterly medical checkups for him and Willy, her controlled fear of the dark; her hard-bought knowledge that time is luck. She knew the value of their days. She could hold a moment by its stem. She had taught him to relish."
Author: Thomas Harris
46. "Very well. He'd lighten up. As a matter of fact, he felt as light as the bubbly froth that flew from the lips of the waves. Whatever else his long, unprecedented life might have been, it had been fun. Fun! If others should find that appraisal shallow, frivolous, so be it. To him, it seemed now to largely have been some form of play. And he vowed that in the future he would strive to keep that sense of play more in mind, for he'd grown convinced that play--more than piety, more than charity or vigilance--was what allowed human beings to transcend evil."
Author: Tom Robbins
47. "Ahead in the distance we could see the main gate, but there was a sea of cars, none moving, people standing, milling around, waiting nervously, perhaps fearfully, as heavily armed MPs and military working dogs searched every square inch of every vehicle, searched every bag on every person, all the while keeping a vigilant eye on the long alley we were stuck in, and on the hundreds of rooftops that overlooked that alley, wary but aware that there were people out there who would gladly hurt us again if given the chance."
Author: Tucker Elliot
48. "Looking up and out, how can we not respect this ever-vigilant cognizance that distinguishes us: the capability to envision, to dream, and to invent? the ability to ponder ourselves? and be aware of our existence on the outer arm of a spiral galaxy in an immeasurable ocean of stars? Cognizance is our crest."
Author: Vanna Bonta
49. "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few."
Author: Wendell Phillips
50. "So, Americans, then. Self-appointed vigilante defenders of the world, kind of like Superman, if Superman was retarded and only fought crime when he felt like it."
Author: Yahtzee Croshaw

I had never expected to fall in love, but then, I'd never imagined anyone like Jess. She was one beautiful contradiction. The idea of letting someone else own my heart wasn't appealing. It sounded weak and Foolish. Something meant for the words of a song. I was wrong."
