3. "But no, music lasted longer than anything it inspired. After LPs, cassettes, and CDs, when matrimony was about to decay into its component elements—alimony and acrimony—the songs startled him and regained all their previous, pre-Rachel meanings, as if they had not only conjured her but then dismissed her, as if she had been entirely their illusion. He listened to the old songs again, years later on that same dark promenade, when every CD he had ever owned sat nestled in that greatest of all human inventions, the iPod, dialed up and yielding to his fingertip's tap. The songs now offered him, in exchange for all he had lost, the sensation that there was something still to long for, still, something still approaching, and all that had gone before was merely prologue to an unimaginably profound love yet to seize him. If there was any difference now, it was only that his hunger for music had become more urgent, less a daily pleasure than a daily craving."

I feel myself alive in it. It talks. And I can hear it....You have to want to listen to it, and then you can hear it. It has a strange, beautiful texture. It doesn't always talk. Sometimes - sometimes it cries, and you can hear the pain of the world in it. It hurts to listen to it then. But you have to."
Author: Chaim Potok
6. "The men were smashing windows and aiming their weapons through them. The driver had opened the door and was shouting for the women and children to get out and run and hide.

8. "And what should he have known? Well, who could answer that? Thought he was closer to all the players than anyone, he still couldn't identify who was responsible and who wasn't. Really responsible, not just "look the other way" responsible. They all were, in some larger sense. And yet, while he knew this was a wholly indefensible position, he felt that somehow none of them were, either. Just like the guys at Lehmen, or Bear Stearns, or AIG. Just like the guys at Delphic. It became a game, a contest; the only rules that governed were what made you money and what didn't. All Paul did was hang the hell on and try not to get thrown."
Author: Cristina Alger

Deep into the house, farther in, not into the house we see. It is as if that house were a face, and when you see a face you can't see the brain or the thoughts of the person behind it. And it is so strange - the house inside the house."********"How is it strange - this that you call the house inside the house?"She said vaguely, her eyes growing glassy, "Strange. Shapes change, and sizes. The rooms are different: bigger and blacker and longer and the shadows are full of things. Creatures - or sometimes the rooms get smaller, fewer, and the furnishings change and change, like the scenes in a kaleidoscope, and I see the people in the portraits walking about in them."

Feudalism takes firm hold, sometimes disguised as a politbureau or similar structure, but always present. Hereditary succession follows the lines of power. The blood of the powerful dominates."

A verdade não é uma coisa que rola por aí, como dinheiro trocado; é algo para ser acalentada, acumulada e desembolsada apenas quando absolutamente necessário. O menor átomo da verdade representa a amarga labuta e agonia de algum homem; para cada pilha dela, há o túmulo de um bravo dono da verdade sobre algumas cinzas solitárias e uma alma fritando no Inferno."
Author: H.L. Mencken

Preferem ser conduzidas pela vida, encostando-se às circunstâncias, aproveitando o melhor que a sorte trouxer, e depois logo se vê. Mas que o faz geralmente acaba por cair. Podemos escolher passar pela vida ou deixar que a vida passe por nós, podemos ser proactivos ou reactivos, podemos arriscar ou adiar, mas tudo isso tem muito mais a ver com a educação e com o carácter de cada um, portanto talvez nem sequer seja uma questão de opção."

"Along with the standard computer warranty agreement which said that if the machine 1) didn't work, 2) didn't do what the expensive advertisements said, 3) electrocuted the immediate neighborhood, 4) and in fact failed entirely to be inside the expensive box when you opened it, this was expressly, absolutely, implicitly and in no event the fault or responsibility of the manufacturer, that the purchaser should consider himself lucky to be allowed to give his money to the manufacturer, and that any attempt to treat what had just been paid for as the purchaser's own property would result in the attentions of serious men with menacing briefcases and very thin watches. Crowley had been extremely impressed with the warranties offered by the computer industry, and had in fact sent a bundle Below to the department that drew up the Immortal Soul agreements, with a yellow memo form attached just saying: 'Learn, guys..."

34. "Todo cansa en esta vida, hasta la felicidad, me dijeron una vez. Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así.Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así. Solo era una pequeña hipótesis de que el encanto en la vida es sufrir un poco para regresar a la paz y valorarla. Los momentos de infelicidad son el combustible de la felicidad. En lo personal, me gustan las relaciones largas con todos sus defectos y repentinas pero momentáneas faltas de adrenalina. Al final es lo mejor. El test del tiempo siempre arroja que es mucho más satisfactorio lo que obtienes de relaciones largas robustecidas a causa de los problemas y sus maravillosas reconciliaciones, que lo que te pueden dar los fragmentados y espaciados fogonazos de la soltería."

39. "¡Oh, Luna! Siempre estuviste a mi lado, alumbrándome en los momentos más terribles; desde mi infancia fuiste el misterio que velaste por mi terror, fuiste el consuelo en las noches mas desesperadas, fuiste mi propia madre, bañándome en un calor que ella tal vez nunca supo brindarme; en medio del bosque, en los lugares más tenebrosos, en el mar; allí estabas tu acompañándome; eras mi consuelo, siempre fuiste la que me orientaste en los momentos más difíciles. Mi gran diosa, mi verdadera diosa, que me has protegido de tantas calamidades; hacia ti en medio del mar; hacia ti junto a la costa; hacia ti entre las costas de mi isla desolada. Elevaba la mirada y te miraba; siempre la misma; en tu rostro veía una expresión de dolor, de amargura, de compasión hacia mí; tu hijo. Y ahora, súbitamente, luna, estallas en pedazos delante de mi cama. Ya estoy solo. Es de noche."

Néha gyoztek, csakúgy, mint ti, néha viszont veszítettek, ami szintén nem ismeretlen dolog elottetek sem. Volt, amikor szégyellték magukat, mert tudták, hogy nem tettek meg minden tolük telhetot, és volt, amikor tudták, hogy azt tették, amit az isteneik elvártak tolük. Mindezzel csupán azt szeretném mondani, hogy éltek, ahogyan tudtak; néhányan tovább, mint mások, de mindannyian helyesen és bátran, és mindannyiukat szeretem, amit nem is szégyellek."

49. "Is it - I'm not certain - possible to love someone if your first interest is the use you can make of him? Doesn't the gainful motive, and the guilt accruing to it, halt the progression of other emotions? It can be argued that even the most decently coupled people were initially magnetized by the mutual-exploitation principle - sex, shelter, appeased ego; but still that is trivial, human: the difference between that and truly using another person is the difference between edible mushrooms and the kind that kill: Unspoiled Monsters."
Author: Truman Capote

Today's Quote

I know quite well that one needs ridiculous, mad situations like that; one can't write really well about anything else. Why was that old fellow such a marvelous propaganda technician? Because he had so many insane, excruciating things to get excited about. You've got to be hurt and upset; otherwise you can't think of the really good, penetrating, X-rayish phrases."
