1. "The incident emphasizes once more that beauty is something to be found, rather than passively encountered, that it requires us to pick up on certain details, to identify the whiteness of a cotton dress, the reflection of the sea on the hull of a yacht, or the contrast between the color of a jockey's coat and his face."
Author: Alain De Botton

4. "Dis nie net die dooies wat in jou inweek en deel van jou word nie: dis almal, elke enkele een met wie jy 'n entjie pad saamreis; elkeen gee af aan jou, jy aan hulle. Nooit is dit net jy en jy alleen nie. Nooit gebeur iets net NOU nie. Altyd sleep dit slierte saam. Altyd suig dit by voorbaat al die toekoms in."

5. "At bottom, politics was a hullabaloo of equal and individual competitors who would only be guaranteed to cooperate for one cause: the elimination of anybody who threatened to step out of line and grab too much power for himself. It follows that there was nothing resembling today's political parties....Since the fall of the monarchy in 510 BC, Roman domestic politics had been a long, inconclusive class struggle, suspended for long periods by foreign wars. during one never-to-be-forgotten confrontation over a debt crisis in 493 BC, the entire population withdrew its labor" (14)."
Author: Anthony Everitt
6. "The sea was cruel and selfish as human beings, and in its monstrous simplicity had no notion of complexities like pity, wounding, or remorse...

Author: Arturo Pérez Reverte
7. "Viimaste ellujääjate agoonia on ilmselt kõige hullem."
Author: Bernard Werber

11. "What is dying?I am standing on the seashore.A ship sails to the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.She is an object and I stand watching herTill at last she fades from the horizon,And someone at my side says, "She is gone!" Gone where?Gone from my sight, that is all;She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her,And just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her;And just at the moment when someone at my side says, "She is gone",There are others who are watching her coming,And other voices take up a glad shout,"There she comes" – and that is dying."
Author: Charles Henry Brent
12. "I can't say when you'll get love or how you'll find it or even promise you that you will. I can only say you are worthy of it and that it's never too much to ask for it and that it's not crazy to fear you'll never have it again, even though your fears are probably wrong. Love is our essential nutrient. Without it, life has little meaning. It's the best thing we have to give and the most valuable thing we receive. It's worthy of all the hullabaloo."
Author: Cheryl Strayed
13. "I knew that I needed to do something that I desperately loved. There was a period where I did question if it was acting because I knew that I would be making things hard on myself. I knew that there was going to be a little bit of a hullabaloo because of my dad being who he is and all that."
Author: Colin Hanks
14. "I was born in the year 1632, in the city of York, of a good family, though not of that country, my father being a foreigner of Bremen, who settled first at Hull. He got a good estate by merchandise, and leaving off his trade, lived afterwards at York, from whence he had married my mother, whose relations were named Robinson, a very good family in that country, and from whom I was called Robinson Kreutznaer; but, by the usual corruption of words in England, we are now called - nay we call ourselves and write our name - Crusoe; and so my companions always called me."
Author: Daniel Defoe
15. "Where to?" said the bear.The boy wobbled back to the rear seat, concentrating as the hull rolled and bounced beneath him. He half sat and half fell onto the hard wooden bench, bashing his wrist painfully against the edge as he landed."Ow!" he said. "Just over to the other side, please." He waved his unbashed hand vaguely out across the water without looking up."Right you are," said the bear."
Author: Dave Shelton

18. "Különben ne kicsinyeld le azt az érzést, hogy szeretsz valakit. Kevés emberrel esett meg az a szerencse, hogy megszeretett valakit. Te eddig nem ismerted a szerelmet, most meg az öledbe hullt. Mindegy, hogy holnapig vagy holnaputánig, vagy életed végéig tart ez az érzés Maríával, mindenképp a legnagyobb dolog, ami az emberrel történhetik. Mindig lesznek emberek, akik azt hiszik, hogy nincs szerelem, mert ok nem ismerték meg."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
19. "If we go on to cast a look at the fate of world historical personalities... we shall find it to have been no happy one. They attained no calm enjoyment; their whole life was labor and trouble; their whole nature was nothing but their master passion. When their object is attained they fall off like empty hulls from the kernel. They die early, like Alexander; they are murdered, like Casear; transported to St. Helena, like Napoleon."
Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Down below, on the sidewalk, no one. This spreading silence increased the tranquility of things. In the distance, the caulkers' hammers tamped the hulls, and a heavy breeze brought the smell of tar."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
23. "The sky was no longer blue. North-eastward it was inky black, and out of the blackness shone brightly and steadily the pale white stars. Overhead it was a deep Indian red and starless, and south-eastward it grew brighter to a glowing scarlet where, cut by the horizon, lay the huge hull of the sun, red and motionless. The rocks about me were of a harsh reddish colour, and all the trace of life that I could see at first was the intensely green vegetation that covered every projecting point on their south-eastern face."
Author: H.G. Wells
24. "Keväälle joka vanhentaa väsyneetja merelle joka muistaa kaikenkatseelle joka yhä hyväksyyja lapsen silmien sirkkelillejoka kiljuen viipaloi aikuisettekosyytIlolle joka kantaa askeltakun ankarin on vasta edessätai pakolle joka niskaan hönkiija hulluudelle joka vaakaa heiluttaakun ruuvi ratisee ja irtoaaNiille jotka eivät suostu hyppimäänyhtä jalkaa ruudusta ruutuun- siis tiiliseinille ja paukapäilleja tosilumelle unten pakastimessaja Kaivopuiston tai Moherinkalliollemissä talvien odotus täyttyy"
Author: Hannu Kankaanpää
25. "All the men she's been with and now you, just you, and the barges going by, masts and hulls, the whole damned current of life flowing through you, through her, through all the guys behind you and after you, the flowers and the birds and the sun streaming in and the fragrance of it choking you, annihilating you."
Author: Henry Miller
26. "With no small interest, Captain Delano continued to watch her---a proceeding not much facilitated by the vapors partly mantling the hull, through which the far matin light from her cabin streamed equivocally enough; much like the sun---by this time hemisphered on the rim of the horizon, and, apparently, in company with the strange ship entering the harbor---which, wimpled by the same low, creeping clouds, showed not unlike a Lima intriquante's one sinister eye peering across the Plaza from the Indian loop-hole of her dusk saya-y-manta."
Author: Herman Melville
27. "How deaf and stupid have I been!" he thought, walking swiftly along."When someone reads a text, wants to discover its meaning, he will notscorn the symbols and letters and call them deceptions, coincidence, andworthless hull, but he will read them, he will study and love them, letterby letter. But I, who wanted to read the book of the world and the bookof my own being, I have, for the sake of a meaning I had anticipated be-fore I read, scorned the symbols and letters, I called the visible world adeception, called my eyes and my tongue coincidental and worthlessforms without substance. No, this is over, I have awakened, I have in-deed awakened and have not been born before this very day."
Author: Hermann Hesse
28. "...for all its apparent speed, the ship was almost perfectly silent, and he experienced an enervating, eerie feeling, as though the ancient warship, mothballed all those centuries, had somehow not yet fully woken up, and events within its sleek hull still moved to another, slower tempo, made half of dreams."
Author: Iain Banks
29. "Az elso gondolatot mindig egy második követi, egyik rejtély szüli a másikat: vajon ugyanannyira élo-e mindenki más, mint o maga? A novére például számít-e önmagának, ugyanolyan fontos-e önmaga számára, mint Briony? Ceciliának lenni, az vajon ugyanolyan élettol pezsgo állapot-e, mint Brionynak lenni? Van-e novérének is hullámtörés mögé rejtett titkos, igazi énje, és tölt-e vele idot, gondolkozik-e rajta, arca elé tartva egyik kinyújtott ujját? Van-e mindenkinek, apját, Bettyt, Hardmant is beleértve? Ha igen, akkor a világ, a társadalmi világ elviselhetetlenül bonyolult, kétmilliárd hang szól benne, és mindenkinek egyformán fontosak a gondolatai, mindenki egyformán ragaszkodhat foggal-körömmel az élethez, miközben egyedülállónak hiszi önmagát, pedig senki sem az. Az ember akár bele is fulladhat a jelentéktelenségbe."
Author: Ian McEwan

Author: Isabel Allende
31. "Neo-Hoodoo is the 8 basic dances of 19th century New Orleans' Place Congo- the Calinda the Bamboula the Chacta the Babouille the Conjaille the Juba the Congo and the VooDoo- modernized into the Philly Dog, the Hully Gully, the Funky Chicken, the Popcorn, the Boogaloo and the dance of great American choreographer Buddy Bradley."

Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
33. "My mother called me Silver. I was born part precious metal part pirate. I have no father. There's nothing unusual about that -even children who do have fathers are often surprised to see them. My own father came out of the sea and went back that way. He was crew on a fishing boat that harboured with us one night when the waves were crashing like dark glass. His splintered hulll shored him for long enough to drop anchor inside my mother.Shoals of babies vied for life.I won."
Author: Jeanette Winterson
34. "Get rid of their mast, knock holes in the hull, then get back on board.""You want us to sink her?" Gundar asked, and Halt shook his head. "No. I want her badly damaged but capable of making it back to port. I want the word to go out that the strange ship with the red falcon ensign"—he gestured to Evanlyn's ensign, flying from the mast top—"is manned by dangerous, hairy maniacs with axes and is to be avoided at all costs." "That sounds like us," Gundar said cheerfully."
Author: John Flanagan
35. "Hullunkurinen juttu, tämä elämä - tämä salaperäinen järjestelmä, jonka armoton logiikka toimii turhaa tarkoitusta varten. Enin mitä siltä voi toivoa saavansa on vähäinen itsetuntemus - joka tulee liian myöhään, satonaan lähtemätön katumus."
Author: Joseph Conrad
36. "Maa kuohuu syreenien sinipunaisia terttuja,pihlajain valkeata kukkahärmää,tervakkojen punaisia tähtisikermiä. Sinisiä, keltaisia, valkeita kukkialainehtivat niityt mielettöminä merinä.Ja tuoksua!Ihanampaa kuin pyhä suitsutus! Kuumaa ja värisevää ja hulluksijuovuttavaa,pakanallista maan ihon tuoksua!"
Author: Katri Vala
37. "Eltávozásod, melyre meggyötört lelkem, bármily leleményes is, nem tud elég gyászos jelzot találni, örökre megfosztott attól, hogy szemedbe tekintsek, abba a szempárba, ahonnan annyi szerelem sugárzott felém, mely oly indulatokat gerjesztett szívemben, miktol elöntött az öröm, s melynek mindent pótoltak az életben, és tökéletesen kielégítettek. Jaj, nem látja már szemem az egyetlen fényforrást, melybol ragyogását kapta; nem is használom másra, mint szüntelen könnyhullatásra, mióta megtudtam, hogy úgy döntöttél: visszatérsz hazádba; hisz ez a gondolat oly elbírhatatlan, hogy gyilkosommá válik nemsokára. S lásd, közben mégis azt érzem, hogy voltaképpen még a kínokhoz is ragaszkodom én, mert te, egyedül te vagy okozójuk, s én, mihelyt megláttalak, neked szántam az életemet, hát most még abban is találok egy szikrányi gyönyöruséget, ha feláldozhatom érted."
Author: Mariana Alcoforado
38. "I wade through the rush of neglect and loss and sadness pouring through a hole in my hull."
Author: Merri Lisa Johnson
39. "Like most policemen, Landsman sails double-hulled against tragedy, stabilized against heave and storm. It's the shallows he has to worry about, the hairline fissures, the little freaks of torque. The memory of that summer, for example, or the thought that he had long since exhausted the patience of a kid who once would have waited a thousand years to spend an hour with him shooting cans off a fence with an air rifle. The sight of the Longhouse breaks some small, as yet unbroken facet of Landman's heart. All of the things they made, during their minute in this corner of the map, dissolved in brambles of salmonberry and oblivion."
Author: Michael Chabon
40. "What of miniature boats constructed of birch bark and fallen leaves, launched onto cold water clear as air? How many fleets were pushed out toward the middles of ponds or sent down autumn brooks, holding treasures of acorns, or black feathers, or a puzzled mantis? Let those grassy crafts be listed alongside the iron hulls that cleave the sea, for they are all improvisations built from the daydreams of men, and all will perish, whether from the ocean siege or October breeze."
Author: P. Harding
41. "Morgon of Hed met the High One's harpist one autumn day when the trade-ships docked at Tol for the season's exchange of goods. A small boy caught sight of the round-hulled ships with their billowing sails striped red and blue and green, picking their way among the tiny fishing boats in the distance, and ran up the coast from Tol to Akren, the house of Morgon, Prince of Hed. There he disrupted an argument, gave his message, and sat down at the long, nearly deserted tables to forage whatever was left of breakfast. The Prince of Hed, who was recovering slowly from the effects of loading two carts of beer for trading the evening before, ran a reddened eye over the tables and shouted for his sister."
Author: Patricia A. McKillip
42. "En natt i lengst forsvundne tider våknet mennesket og så seg selv... da dyrene kom til sine vannhull, hvor han ventet dem av gammel vane, da kjente han ikke lenger tigerspranget i sitt blod, men en stor salme om lidelsens broderskap mellom alt som lever."
Author: Peter Wessel Zapffe
43. "I'm saying your name in the grocery store, I'm saying your name on the bridge at dawn. Your name like an animal covered with frost, your name like a music that's been transposed, a suit of fur, a coat of mud, a kick in the pants, a lungful of glass, the sails in wind and the slap of waves on the hull..."
Author: Richard Siken
44. "Leo had wanted to paint a giant message on the bottom of the hull-WASSUP? with a smiley-face-but Annabeth had vetoed the idea."
Author: Rick Riordan
45. "I had four blak arrows under my belt,Four for the greefs that I have felt,Four for the number of ill menneThat have oppressid me now and then.One is gone; one is wele sped;Old Apulyaird is dead.One is for Maister Bennet Hatch,That burned Grimstone, walls and thatch.One for Sir Oliver Oates,That cut Sir Harry Shelton's throat.Sir Daniel, ye shull have the fourt;We shall think it fair sport.Ye shull each have your own part,A blak arrow in each blak heart.Get ye to your knees for to pray;Ye are ded theeves, by yea and nay!JON AMEND-ALLOf the Green Wood,And his jolly fellaweship"
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
46. "Ez volt színes, szélesvásznú álmaim idoszaka. Anyám úgy hitte, óriási mennyiségu alvásra van szükségem, így aztán sosem voltam igazán fáradt, amikor lefeküdtem. Ez volt a nap legjobb része, amikor fekhettem a megfoghatatlan félhomályban, félálomban, formálva fejemben tulajdon álmaimat. Repülo álmaim oly hihetoek voltak, akár Dalí tájképei, oly valóságosak, hogy hirtelen összerándulva ébredtem belolük, azzal a fulladó érzéssel, hogy Ikaroszként hulltam alá az égbol, s éppen idejében fogott föl puha ágyam.(Superman és Paula Brown új kezeslábasa)"
Author: Sylvia Plath
47. "...a hullámok monoton bukdosása a parton, mely többnyire ütemesen s megnyugtatóan kísérte gondolatait, ahogy ott ült gyermekei körében, már-már vigasztaló ritmust verve, s akár ha a természet hajtogatná egy régi-régi bölcsodal szavaival: "Nem hagylak el - megvédelek...", máskor viszont hirtelen, váratlanul, s foleg ha figyelme elterelodött épp a pillanatnyi teendorol, mintha egyáltalán nem sugallt volna ily vigaszos jelentést, nem, de mint kísérteties dobok pergése, szólt az élet mértékeirol, hogy aki hallja, a pusztulásra gondoljon, itt e szigetére, a tenger ölén, s ot magát arra figyelmezteti, hogy napjai hiába telnek hol ezzel, hol azzal a valóságos kis teendovel, anyagtalanok csak, mint a szivárvány - ez a monotonság, mely tompán rejlezett eleddig más hangok mögé, most egyszerre ott dübörgött, mint hatalmas üregben, a fülében, s o maga óhatatlan borzadállyal kapta fel nyomban a fejét."
Author: Virginia Woolf
48. "...érezte, igen, hogy az élet, mely elkülönült kis események sorozata, s ezeket egyenként, sorjában éljük át, kígyózó-hullámzó egész, mely hol feldobja, hol sodorja magával az embert, s a partra csobbantja végül."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "Gondolkodhatom most, amirol csak akarok, nem hullok szakadékba, nem fúlok a habokba, mert itt van velem, nézett apjára, o."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "Now, the United Nations is an organization that I believe was founded with good intentions. As a matter of fact, a prominent Tennessean named Cordell Hull was very involved with it."
