4. "I, Hasan the son of Muhammad the weigh-master, I, Jean-Leon de Medici, circumcised at the hand of a barber and baptized at the hand of a pope, I am now called the African, but I am not from Africa, nor from Europe, nor from Arabia. I am also called the Granadan, the Fassi, the Zayyati, but I come from no country, from no city, no tribe. I am the son of the road, my country is the caravan, my life the most unexpected of voyages."
Author: Amin Maalouf

10. "[...] e io sfrego, con il guanto, con il sapone, ogni volta stupito dalla densità di quei piccoli corpi, come se maneggiassi energia allo stato puro, tutta l'energia di due esistenze a venire fantasticamente racchiusa in quella carne infantile così compatta, sotto quella pelle così delicata. Non saranno mai più così densi, né i lineamenti dei visi saranno mai più così netti, né così bianco il bianco dei loro occhi, né le orecchie così perfettamente disegnate, né così compatta la grana della pelle. L'uomo nasce nell'iperrealismo per dilatarsi pian piano fino a un puntinismo alquanto approssimativo per poi disperdersi in una polvere di astrattismo."
Author: Daniel Pennac
11. "Gle malu vocku poslije kiše:Puna je kapi pa ih njiše.I bliješti suncem obasjana,Cudesna raskoš njenih grana.Al nek se sunce malko skrije,Nestane sve te carolije.Ona je opet kao prvo,Obicno, jadno, malo drvo."
Author: Dobriša Cesaric
12. "I envied women with signature hair-dos, signature perfumes, signature sign-offs. Novelists who tell Vogue Magazine: "I can't live without my Smythson notebook, Pomegranate Noir cologne by Jo Malone and Frette sheets". In the grip of madness, materialism begins to look like an admirable belief system."
Author: Emma Forrest
13. "Jetzt sehe ich erst, daß du ein Mensch bist wie ich. Ich habe gedacht an deine Handgranaten, an dein Bajonett und deine Waffen – jetzt sehe ich deine Frau und dein Gesicht und das Gemeinsame. Vergib mir, Kamerad! Wir sehen es immer zu spät. Warum sagt man uns nicht immer wieder, daß ihr ebenso arme Hunde seid wie wir, daß eure Mütter sich ebenso ängstigen wie unsere und daß wir die gleiche Furcht vor dem Tode haben und das gleiche Sterben und den gleichen Schmerz –. Vergib mir, Kamerad, wie konntest du mein Feind sein? Wenn wir diese Waffen und diese Uniform fortwerfen, könntest du ebenso mein Bruder sein wie Kat und Albert. Nimm zwanzig Jahre von mir, Kamerad, und stehe auf – nimm mehr, denn ich weiß nicht, was ich damit noch beginnen soll."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
14. "Cada hora del hombre es un lugar vivo de nuestra existencia que ocurre una sola vez, irremplazable para siempre. Aquí reside la tensión de la vida, su grandeza, la posibilidad de que la inasible fugacidad del tiempo se colme de instantes absolutos, de modo que al mirar hacia atrás, el largo trayecto se nos aparece como el desgranarse de días sagrados, inscriptos en tiempos o en épocas diferentes."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
15. "Nur noch vereinzelt schlugen mächtige Granaten ein, von denen eine gleich einem Gruß der Hölle vor uns zerschellte und das Kanalbett mit finsteren Qualm füllte. Die Mannschaft verstummte, wie von einer eisigen Faust im Nacken gepackt, und stolperte hastig über Stacheldraht und Steintrümmer hinter mir her. Ein unheimliches Gefühl beschleicht das beim Durchschreiten einer unbekannten Stellung zur Nachtzeit, auch wenn das Feuer nicht sonderlich stark ist; Auge und Ohr werden durch die sonderbarsten Täuschungen gereizt. Alles ist kalt und fremdartig wie in einer verwunschenen Welt."
Author: Ernst Jünger
16. "The river GuadalquivirFlows between oranges and olivesThe two rivers of GranadaDescend from the snow to the wheatOh my love!Who went and never returnedThe river GuadalquivirHas beards of maroonThe two rivers of GranadaOne a cry the other bloodOh my love!Who vanished into thin air"
Author: Federico García Lorca

Author: Filipe Russo
18. "No había ningún misterio en el corazón de un Buendía que fuera impenetrable para ella, porque un siglo de naipes y de experiencia le había enseñado que la historia de la familia era un engranaje de repeticiones irreparables, una rueda giratoria que hubiera seguido dando vueltas hasta la eternidad, de no haber sido por el desgaste progresivo e irremediable del eje."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
19. "The dual scourge of hunger and malnutrition will be truly vanquished not only when granaries are full, but also when people's basic health needs are met and women are given their rightful role in societies."

21. "Iced champagne was poured out. Emma shivered all over as she felt it cold in her mouth. She had never seen pomegranates nor tasted pine-apples. The powdered sugar even seemed to her whiter and finer than elsewhere."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
22. "Good acts grow upon a person. I have sometimes thought that many men, judging from their utter lack of kindness and of a disposition to aid others, imagined that if they were to say or do a kind thing, it would destroy their capacity to perform a kind act or say a kind word in the future. If you have a granary full of grain, and you give away a sack or two, there remain that many less in your granary, but if you perform a kind act or add words of encouragement to one in distress, who is struggling along in the battle of life, the greater is your capacity to do this in the future. Don't go through life with your lips sealed against words of kindness and encouragement, nor your hearts sealed against performing labors for another. Make a motto in life: always try and assist someone else to carry his burden."
Author: Heber J. Grant
23. "But it is the knowledge of how contingent my unease is, how dependent on a baby that wails beneath my window one day and does not wail the next, that brings the worst shame to me, the greatest indifference to annihilation. I know somewhat too much; and from this knowledge, once one has been infected, there seems to be no recovering. I ought never to have taken my lantern to see what was going on in the hut by the granary. On the other hand, there was no way, once I had picked up the lantern, for me to put it down again. The knot loops in upon itself; I cannot find the end."
Author: J.M. Coetzee
24. "The decor bowled me over. Everywhere I looked, there was something more to see. Botanical prints, a cross section of pomegranates, a passionflower vine and its fruit. Stacks of thick books on art and design and a collection of glass paperweights filled the coffee table. It was enormously beautiful, a sensibility I'd never encountered anywhere, a relaxed luxury. I could feel my mother's contemptuous gaze falling on the cluttered surfaces, but I was tired of three white flowers in a glass vase. There was more to life than that."
Author: Janet Fitch
25. "Adrian: "I've made my position clear, Mr. Skerry. It's not my job to protect people from their own stupidity."Resonator: "And I like to give hand granades to babies ... let's be friends!?"
Author: Jesse Hajicek
26. "I want to sing more in Spanish. I want to sing the songs of Granados; the songs of Montsalvatge. To do things that truly I've not done before."
Author: Jessye Norman
27. "Fairy SongShed no tear! oh, shed no tear!The flower will bloom another year.Weep no more! oh, weep no more!Young buds sleep in the root's white core.Dry your eyes! oh, dry your eyes!For I was taught in ParadiseTo ease my breast of melodies,— Shed no tear.Overhead! look overhead!‘Mong the blossoms white and red—Look up, look up! I flutter nowOn this fresh pomegranate bough.See me! 'tis this silvery billEver cures the good man's ill.Shed no tear! oh, shed no tear!The flower will bloom another year.Adieu, adieu—I fly—adieu!I vanish in the heaven's blue,— Adieu, adieu!"
Author: John Keats
28. "Rosa que al prado, encarnada,te ostentas presuntuosade grana y carmín bañada:campa lozana y gustosa;pero no, que siendo hermosatambien serás desdichada."
Author: Juana Inés De La Cruz
29. "Granana lives on the other side of the island. She's eighty-four, I'm twelve, and Wallow's fourteen, so it's a little ambiguous as to who's babysitting whom."
Author: Karen Russell
30. "Granana doesn't understand what the big deal is. She didn't cry at Olivia's funeral, and I doubt she even remembers Olivia's name. Granana lost, like, ninety-two million kids in childbirth. All of her brothers died in the war. She survived the Depression by stealing radish bulbs from her neighbors' garden, and fishing the elms for pigeons. Dad likes to remind us of this in a grave voice, as if it explained her jaundiced pitilessness: "Boys. Your grandmother ate pigeons."
Author: Karen Russell
31. "On the fifth night of our search, I see a plesiosaur. It is a megawatt behemoth, bronze and blue-white, streaking across the sea floor like a torpid comet. Watching it, I get this primordial deja vu, like I'm watching a dream return to my body. It wings towards me with a slow, avian grace. Its long neck is arced in an S-shaped curve; its lizard body is the size of Granana's carport. Each of its ghost flippers pinwheels colored light. I try to swim out of its path, but the thing's too big to avoid. That Leviathan fin, it shivers right through me. It's a light in my belly, cold and familiar. And I flash back to a snippet from school, a line from a poem or a science book, I can't remember which: 'There are certain prehistoric things that swim beyond extinction'."
Author: Karen Russell
32. "A cascade of thousands of pomegranate pits fructify her from above and female hands maculate the goddess's body in the musical mists of mind-blowing nightly sex. But they won't fuck her, they will kill her."
Author: Laura Gentile
33. "A pomegranate is filled with rubies when you open it up. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend - but not for me. I love rubies; they're great over necks, you know."
Author: Lynda Resnick
34. "The founding of libraries was like constructing more public granaries, amassing reserves against a spiritual winter which by certain signs, in spite of myself, I see ahead…"
Author: Marguerite Yourcenar
35. "On top of the good was a hideously ugly bronze statue in the modern style. The statue was of a couple, dressed in togas, wrapped in an embrace. Cupped in their hands was a piece of fruit. I couldn't be sure, because realism did not appear to be the artist's specialty, but it looked to me like a pomegranate."Good God," Frank, who'd trailed after us, said when he saw the statue. "Rector's even sicker than any of us thought. I've never wished I was blind before, like Graves, but I do now, because then I'd never have to look at that again.""Frank," John said, his gaze on my face. "Be quiet.""But what do they do in here?" Frank wanted to know. "Have picnics with their dead relatives and admire their ugly art?"
Author: Meg Cabot
36. "When I joined Granada - which, you don't want to start crying about these things, but Granada was a very, very hot place to be, it was my good fortune to be there at that time - the BBC was firmly asleep."
Author: Michael Apted
37. "Pero no puedo dejar de pensar, no puedo detener el movimiento del engranaje de todo cuanto he aprendido. Dejo que mi mente se pasee por la oscuridad"
Author: Michelle Zink
38. "But surely, Philip Philipovich, everybody says that 30-degree vodka is quite good enough.' ‘Vodka should be at least 40 degrees, not 30 – that's firstly,' Philip Philipovich interrupted him didactically, ‘and secondly – God knows what muck they make into vodka nowadays. What do you think they use?' ‘Anything they like,' said the other doctor firmly. ‘I quite agree,' said Philip Philipovich and hurled the contents of his glass down his throat in one gulp. ‘Ah . . . m'm . . . Doctor Bormenthal – please drink that at once and if you ask me what it is, I'm your enemy for life. "From Granada to Seville . . ." Chapter 3"
Author: Mikhail Bulgakov
39. "Y algo golpeaba en mi alma, fiebre o alas perdidas, y me fui haciendo solo, descifrando aquella quemadura y escribí la primera línea vaga, vaga, sin cuerpo, pura, tontería pura sabiduría del que no sabe nada, y vi de pronto el cielo desgranado y abierto."
Author: Pablo Neruda
40. "It was the face of spring, it was the face of summer, it was the warmness of clover breath. Pomegranate glowed in her lips, and the noon sky in her eyes. To touch her face was that always new experience of opening your window one December morning, early, and putting out your hand to the first white cool powdering of snow that had come, silently, with no announcement, in the night. And all of this, this breath-warmness and plum-tenderness was held forever in one miracle of photographic is chemistry which no clock winds could blow upon to change one hour or one second; this fine first cool white snow would never melt, but live a thousand summers."
Author: Ray Bradbury
41. "I wonder now about Demeter and Persephone. Maybe Persephone was glad to run off with the king of death to his underground realm, maybe it was the only way she could break away from her mother, maybe Demeter was a bad parent the way Lear was a bad parent, denying nature, including the nature of children to leave their parents. Maybe Persephone thought Hades was the infinitely cool older man who held the knowledge she sought, maybe she loved the darkness, the six months of winter, the sharp taste of pomegranates, the freedom from her mother, maybe she knew that to be truly alive death had to be part of the picture just as winter must. It was as the queen of hell that she became an adult and came into power. Hades's realm is called the underworld, and so are the urban realms of everything outside the law. And as in Hopi creation myths, where humans and other beings emerge from underground, so it's from the underground that culture emerges in this civilization."
Author: Rebecca Solnit
42. "Goodness is adorable, and it is immortal. When it is trodden down into the earth it springs up again, and human beings scrabble in the dust to find the first green seedling of its return. The stock cannot survive save by the mutual kindness of men and women, of old and young, of state and individual. Hatred comes before love, and gives the hater strange and delicious pleasures, but its works are short-lived; the head is cut from the body before the time of natural death, the lie is told to frustrate the other rogue's plan before it comes to fruit. Sooner or later society tires of making a mosaic of these evil fragments; and even if the rule of hatred lasts some centuries it occupies no place in real time, it is a hiatus in reality, and not the vastest material thefts, not world wide raids on mines and granaries, can give it substance."
Author: Rebecca West
43. "Il Buddha, il Divino, dimora nel circuito di un calcolatore o negli ingranaggi del cambio di una moto con lo stesso agio che in cima a una montagna o nei petali di un fiore."
Author: Robert M. Pirsig
44. "Come to the orchard in Spring.There is light and wine, and sweetheartsin the pomegranate flowers.If you do not come, these do not matter.If you do come, these do not matter."
Author: Rumi
45. "The words that make the rose bloom were also said to me.The words told to the cypress to make it grow strong and straight.The instructions whispered to the jasmine.And whatever was said to the sugarcane to make it sweet.And to the pomegranate flowers to make them blush. The same thing is being said to me."
Author: Rumi
46. "Fun fact #1 about pomegranates: Pomegranates are awesome.Fun fact #2: Pomegranates are like little explosions of awesome in your mouth.Fun fact #3: A lot of people think you're not supposed to eat the seeds of a pomegranate - but that's not true, people who tell you that are liars, and they don't know anything about life, and they should never be trusted."
Author: Tahereh Mafi
47. "In order to eat a pomegranate you need this many things: a pomegranate, a knife, a cutting board, a bowl and a towel. Also, two hands. These help with the making of the pomegranate."
Author: Tahereh Mafi
48. "In 1879 the Bengali scholar S.M. Tagore compiled a more extensive list of ruby colors from the Purana sacred texts: ‘like the China rose, like blood, like the seeds of the pomegranate, like red lead, like the red lotus, like saffron, like the resin of certain trees, like the eyes of the Greek partridge or the Indian crane…and like the interior of the half-blown water lily.' With so many gorgeous descriptive possibilities it is curious that in English the two ancient names for rubies have come to sound incredibly ugly."
Author: Victoria Finlay
49. "Usually, to be sure, man considers only the stubble field of transitoriness and overlooks the full granaries of the past, wherein he had salvaged once and for all his deeds, his joys and also his sufferings. Nothing can be undone, and nothing can be done away with. I should say having been is the surest kind of being."
Author: Viktor E. Frankl
50. "As Borges has taught us, all the books in the library are contemporary. Great poems are like granaries: they are always ready to enlarge their store."
Author: William H. Gass
