3. "That which had made Helmholtz so uncomfortably aware of being himself and all alone was too much ability."
Author: Aldous Huxley
4. "Oh, as far as they go." Helmholtz shrugged his shoulders. "But they go such a little way. They aren't important enough, somehow. I feel I could do something much more important. Yes, and more intense, more violent. But what? What is there more important to say? And how can one be violent about the sort of things one's expected to write about? Words can be like X-rays, if you use them properly ? they'll go through anything. You read and you're pierced. That's one of the things I try to teach my students ? how to write piercingly. But what on earth's the good of being pierced by an article about a Community Sing, or the latest improvement in scent organs? Besides, can you make words really piercing ? you know, like the very hardest X-rays ? when you're writing about that sort of thing? Can you say something about nothing? That's what it finally boils down to. I try and I try."
Author: Aldous Huxley
5. "Might I not be able to love God in the ways that Katie (Don Holt's Cat) was loving me? A desire to be close, to be in touch, to receive strokes and caresses from the Eternal, to feel warm and safe and comfortable with God?

How's that?""On which the dead man very considerately got up and locked the door on the inside," said Holmes."

8. "Als ik één ding kan is het liefhebben. Dat lijkt niet veel bijzonders, maar ik ben er trots op.Ik heb het geleerd zoals een zwerfhond leert zwemmen: omdat hij met de rest van de worp in een jutezak werd gepropt en in een snelstromende rivier is geworpen.Die ene die het tegen alle verwachtingen in gered heeft, dat ben ik.Met in mijn oren nog het gejank van degenen die het niet haalden, moest ik leren ergens van te houden.Ik ben niet onder gegaan.Ik heb de kant bereikt.Ik heb lief.Andere mensen dragen hun verdriet in hun hart.Ongezien holt dat hen vanbinnen uit. Het is mijn redding geweest dat ik mijn verdriet aan de buitenkant draag, waar het niemand kan ontgaan."
Author: Arthur Japin
9. "Er erlebte die Stadt wie einen Wald. Er dachte: Sie liegt nicht auf einer Insel, sie ist die Insel. Sie ist nicht in eine Landschaft gebaut, sondern ist die Landschaft. Eine Landschaft von steinerner Vegetation, die den Menschen nicht gehört, in die sie erst Schneisen schlagen und in der sie ihre Wohnungen erst begründen müssen. Die Schneisen und Wohnorte können von der Vegetation auch wieder eingeholt und überwuchert werden. Manchmal stieß er auf abgerissene Häusergevierte, Trümmergrundstücke, Fassaden mit leeren oder vermauerten Türen und Fenstern – wie vom Krieg verwüstet, und weil es keinen Krieg gegeben hatte, wie von der Natur ergriffen. diesmal nicht der wuchernden des Waldes, sondern der wütenden eines Erdbebens. Und wie wachsende Kristalle die hochstrebenden neuen Bauten."
Author: Bernhard Schlink
10. "Norma looked at him, puzzled. "Someone else to do the mathematics?""Of course!" Holtzman brushed iron-gray hair away from his face and adjusted his white robe. "You're an *idea* person, like me. We want you to develop concepts, not bother with full-fledged implementation. You should not waste time performing tedious arithmetic. Any halfway-trained person can do that. It's what slaves are for."
Author: Brian Herbert
11. "Even the most complex math can be broken into a sequence of trivial steps. Each of these slaves has been trained to complete specific equations in an assembly-line fashion. When taken together, this collective human mind is capable of remarkable feats." Holtzman surveyed the room as if he expected his solvers to give him a resounding cheer. Instead, they studied their work with heavy-lidded eyes, moving through equation after equation with no comprehension of reasons or larger pictures."
Author: Brian Herbert
12. "… a közönséges könyvek olyanok, mint a meteorok. Mindegyiknek van egy pillanata, egyetlen szempillantás, amikor rikoltva felröppen, mint a fonix, lángot vet minden oldala. Ezért az egy pillanatért, ezért az egyetlen szempillantásért szeretjük oket továbbra is, amikor már hamuvá váltak. S keseru rezignáltásggal vándorlunk néha késobb e kihult oldalakon át, fásult kerepeléssel szemelgetve holt formuláikat, akár egy rózsafüzért."
Author: Bruno Schulz
13. "Ein guter Freund hat einmal zu mir gesagt, die Probleme seien wie Kakerlaken." Immer wenn er ernst sein sollte, verfiel er in einen scherzhaften Ton. "Wenn man sie ans Licht holt, erschrecken sie und machen sich auf und davon."

14. "Vaikka koko maailma vihaisi sinua ja pitäisi sinua pahana, mutta omatuntosi hyväksyisi sinut ja vapauttaisi sinut syytöksistä, et olisi vailla ystävää.""En, tiedän että voisin hyväksyä itseni, mutta se ei riitä! Jos muut eivät rakasta minua, kuolen mieluummin kuin elän - en jaksa kestää yksinäisyyttä ja vihaa, Helen. Katsohan, saadakseni osakseni hiukan rakkautta sinun tai neiti Templen tai jonkun muun rakastamani ihmisen taholta antaisin mielelläni vaikka katkaista käteni, tai antautuisin härän puskettavaksi, tai asettuisin seisomaan potkivan hevosen taakse, niin että se voisi iskeä kavioillaan rintaani -""Vaikene jo, Jane, sinulla on liian suuret luulot ihmisten rakkaudesta. Olet liian kiihkeä, liian raju. - -"
Author: Charlotte Brontë
15. "The treetops swayed high above the mists along the edge of the forest known as Wynne Holt. Five boys, all in their twelfth year, lay on their stomachs peering through the grasses of the headland near The Point. They watched as the cloaked Creature, the Ge-sceaft, wandered through the shifting fog that intermittently smothered the field ahead of them. Its shadow faded and resurfaced as it roamed through the grasses; and at times, eerie noises-- almost like singing-- drifted to the edge of the cliff from where they watched. Angus, the oldest and brawniest of the lads, began telling tales that terrified and delighted the others. "It has horns, it does. That's why it wears the hood so far over its face. The horns aren't at the back; they're near the front, and it uses them to tear up its food like an animal uses claws and fangs." "What does it eat?" The other boys turned"

16. "O'Shaughnessy is hitting Denholt on the side of his head with his free arm, great, walloping, pile-driver blows. The two of them stagger together, like partners in a crazy dance. Glass is breaking all around them. Gray smoke from the six shots, pink-and-white dust from the chipped brick-and-plaster walls, swirl around them in a rainbow haze. Something vividly green flares up from one of the overturned retorts, goes right out again. O'Shaughnessy tears the emptied gun away, flings it off somewhere. More breaking glass, and this time a tart pungent smell that makes the nostrils sting. The crunch of pulverized tube glass underfoot makes it sound as if they were scuffling in sand or hard-packed snow. ("Jane Brown's Body")"
Author: Cornell Woolrich

21. "(While accepting the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award) I've been thinking about why you have to get famous to get an award for helping other people...If your name is John Doe, and you work night and day doing things for your helpless neighbors, what you get for your effort is tired. So, Mr. and Mrs. Doe, and all of you who give of yourselves, to those who carry too big a burden to make it on their own, I want you to reach out and take your share of this...Because if I have earned it, so too have you."
Author: Frank Sinatra
