All this, they'd study and bicker about, trying to outdo each other with the most realistic, the grittiest scenes of urban decay they could create in HO train scale in a subdivision basement"

Ma proprio come un gattino, che da piccolo ti delizia con i suoi modi teneri e amabili, con la sua innocenza, morbidezza e mansuetudine, si trasforma con spaventosa rapidità in un gatto che ti artiglia crudelmente. Vorrei sapere se esiste una sola persona al mondo, all'apparenza felice e indifferente, che non abbia ben nascosti sotto abiti e ornamenti i segni degli artigli dell'amore. Credo anche che si tratti di graffi così profondi che sanguinano a lungo, senza rimarginarsi; e quando, dopo anni, finalmente guariscono, rimane sempre una cicatrice, rossa e terribile, che fa trasalire quando inavvertitamente la si tocca."

The principal gave her a week's detention because of that comment, saying that she needed to take things more seriously. But she WAS being serious.Jenna Hamilton from Graffiti Heaven (Chapter 28)."

Zákaz odvolal, když syna pristihl, jak kusem uhlí píše na zed v jakési zapadlé chodbe jejich domu svuj vlastní dukaz, že souctem úhlu v trojuhelníku je vždy prímý úhel. Bylo to asi jediné inteligentní graffiti v dejinách."

40. "I taught Leah how to tell where we were in the Campo by using her sense of smell. The south side was glazed with the smell of slain fish and no amount of water or broom-work could ever eliminate the tincture of ammonia scenting that part of the piazza. The fish had written their names in those stones. But so had the young lambs and the coffee beans and torn arugula and the glistening tiers of citrus and the bread baking that produced a golden brown perfume from the great ovens. I whispered to Leah that a sense of smell was better than a yearbook for imprinting the delicate graffiti of time in the memory."

41. "MOMA's values were blown through the American education system, from high school upwards-and downwards, too, greatly raising the status of "creativity" and "self-expression" in kindergarten. By the 1970s, the historical study of modern art had expanded to the point where students were scratching for unexploited thesis subjects. By the mid-eighties, twenty-one-year-old art-history majors would be writing papers on the twenty-six-year-old graffitists."

Author: Tammara Webber
46. "Currently, it was leading him through a neighborhood that was on the downside of whatever curve you hoped you'd bought your property on the upside of. Graffiti and garbage were everywhere here. They were everywhere in the city, if it came to that, but elsewhere the garbage was better quality, and the graffiti was close to being correctly spelled. The whole area was waiting for something to happen, like a really bad fire."
Author: Terry Pratchett

49. "La irritava però sentirsi dentro quell'orrendo mostro! Sentire i rami che si spezzavano, e gli zoccoli che si piantavano profondi nella foresta folta di foglie dell'anima. Odiava di non essere mai del tutto contenta, o del tutto sicura, perché ogni istante quel mostro poteva ridestarsi, quell'odio, che specialmente dalla sua malattia in poi, la graffiava, le faceva male alla spina dorsale; le dava un dolore fisico, e insieme minacciava e insidiava ogni piacere della bellezza, dell'amicizia, della ricchezza, dell'amore e della casa, come se ci fosse davvero un mostro che l'attaccava alle radici, come se l'intera panoplia della contentezza non fosse altro che egoismo!"
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "[Graffiti] gets erased and painted over, and maybe it's even more beautiful because we know it won't last."
