1. "Melancholia is, I believe, a musical problem: a dissonance, a change in rhythm. While on the outside everything happens with the vertiginous rhythm of a cataract, on the inside is the exhausted adagio of drops of water falling from time to tired time. For this reason the outside, seen from the melancholic inside, appears absurd and unreal, and constitutes ‘the farce we all must play'. But for an instant – because of a wild music, or a drug, or the sexual act carried to its climax – the very slow rhythm of the melancholic soul does not only rise to that of the outside world: it overtakes it with an ineffably blissful exorbitance, and the soul then thrills animated by delirious new energies"
Author: Alejandra Pizarnik
2. "And why wander in these labyrinths? Once more, for aesthetic reasons; because this present infinity, these "vertiginous symmetries," have their tragic beauty. The form is more important than the content."
Author: André Maurois
3. "Three years of changes, moves, uncertainties, upheavals; the war, the revolution; scenes of destruction, scenes of death, shelling, blown-up bridges, fires, ruins—all this turned suddenly into a huge, empty, waste space. The first real event since the long interruption was this vertiginous home-coming by train, in the knowledge that his home was still safe, still existing somewhere, with every smallest stone in it dear to him. This was the point of life, this was experience, this was the quest of adventure seekers and what artists had in mind—this coming home to your family, to yourself, this renewal of life."
Author: Boris Pasternak
4. "I need to start thinking more like an engineer and less like a scientist: I need to think about what works, not about why.The problem was me. I was it.That's what I believed. I believed I was the everything.The largeness of my disaster dragged others- frankly, everyone- down with me. I was certain that entire rooms of people became vertiginously joyous when I was high and having fun, and that anyone who got near me when I was morose and coming down would have to feel my pain as potently as I did. Whether I was high or low, the intensity was so great and the world became so small- no larger than the size of me and my mood of the moment- that it was hard to imagine that anything else was going on. It was hard to believe that there were things happening in the world that were not about me."
Author: Elizabeth Wurtzel
5. "É a primeira vez que lhe toca na pele nua.A reacção no ar é imediata. Uma corrente súbita de energia tonificante e luminosa ondula através da sala. O candelabro começa a tremer.A sensação que passa vertiginosamente pela pele de Marco é intensa e profunda, iniciando-se no ponto onde a palma da mão se encontra com a dela, mas alastrando-se a partir daí, numa distância maior e mais profunda"
Author: Erin Morgenstern
6. "Mi cerebro es un hervidero, pero cuando me pongo nervioso las ideas se me suceden como en un vertiginoso ballet."(less)"
Author: Ernesto Sabato
7. "Mientras volvía a mi casa profundamente deprimido, trataba de pensar con claridad. Mi cerebro es un hervidero, pero cuando me pongo nervioso las ideas se me suceden como en un vertiginoso ballet; a pesar de lo cual, o quizá por eso mismo, he ido acostumbrándome a gobernarlas y ordenarlas rigurosamente; de otro modo creo que no tardaría en volverme loco."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
8. "The city blew the windows of my brain wide open. But being in a place so bright, fast and brilliant made you vertiginous with possibility: it didn't necessarily help you grasp those possibilities. I still had no idea what I was going to do. I felt directionless and lost in the crowd. I couldn't yet see how the city worked, but I began to find out."
Author: Hanif Kureishi
9. "It was as if these depths, constantly bridged over by a structure that was firm enough in spite of its lightness and of its occasional oscillation in the somewhat vertiginous air, invited on occasion, in the interest of their nerves, a dropping of the plummet and a measurement of the abyss. A difference had been made moreover, once for all, by the fact that she had, all the while, not appeared to feel the need of rebutting his charge of an idea within her that she didn't dare express, uttered just before one of the fullest of their later discussions ended."
Author: Henry James
10. "Mother Goose will show newcomers to this world how astonishing, beautiful, capricious, dancy, eccentric, funny, goluptious, haphazard, intertwingled, joyous, kindly, loving, melodious, naughty, outrageous, pomsidillious, querimonious, romantic, silly, tremendous, unexpected, vertiginous, wonderful, x-citing, yo-heave-ho-ish, and zany it is."
Author: Iona Opie
11. "...he put his foot on one pedal, scooted a few yards and swung his other leg over the saddle. He soared left into the vertiginously sloping hillside road and sped, without touching his brakes ...The hedgerows and sky blurred; he imagined himself in a velodrome as the wind whipped his hair clean..."
Author: J.K. Rowling

Author: Jennifer Ball
13. "Diferentemente de Newton e de Schopenhauer, seu antepassado não acretitava num tempo uniforme, absoluto. Acreditava em infinitas séries de tempos, numa rede crescente e vertiginosa de tempos que se aproximam, se bifurcam, se cortam ou que secularmente se ignoram, abrange todas as possibilidades. Não existimos na maioria desses tempos; nalguns existe o senhor e não eu. Noutros, eu, não o senhor; noutros, os dois. Neste, que um acaso favorável me surpreende, o senhor chegou a minha casa; noutro, o senhor, ao atravessar o jardim, encontrou-me morto; noutro, digo estas mesmas palavras, mas sou um erro, um fantasma."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
14. "There are, above all, times in which the human reality, always mobile, accelerates, and bursts into vertiginous speeds. Our time is such a one, for it is made of descent and fall."
Author: José Ortega Y Gasset
15. "¿Por qué tan lejos de los dioses? Quizá por preguntarlo. ¿Y qué? El hombre es el animal que pregunta. El día en que verdaderamente sepamos preguntar, habrá diálogo. Por ahora las preguntas nos alejan vertiginosamente de las respuestas. ¿Qué epifanía podemos esperar si nos estamos ahogando en la más falsa de las libertades, la dialéctica judeocristiana? Nos hace falta un Novum Organum de verdad, hay que abrir de par en par todas las ventanas y tirar todo a la calle, pero sobre todo hay que tirar también la ventana, y nosotros con ella. Es la muerte, o salir volando. Hay que hacerlo, de alguna manera hay que hacerlo."
Author: Julio Cortázar
16. "Y no había palabras, porque no había pensamiento posible para esa fuerza capaz de convertir jirones de recuerdo, imágenes aisladas y anodinas, en un repentino bloque vertiginoso, en una viviente constelación aniquilada en el acto mismo de mostrarse, una contradicción que parecía ofrecer y negar a la vez lo que Juan, bebiendo la segunda copa de Sylvaner, contaría más tarde a Calac, a Tell, a Hélène, cuando los encontrara en la mesa del Cluny, y que ahora le hubiera sido necesario poseer de alguna manera como si la tentativa de fijar ese recuerdo no mostrara ya que era inútil, que estaba echando paladas de sombra contra la oscuridad."
Author: Julio Cortázar
17. "Astral Weeks," insofar as it can be pinned down, is a record about people stunned by life, completely overwhelmed, stalled in their skins, their ages and selves, paralyzed by the enormity of what in one moment of vision they can comprehend. It is a precious and terrible gift, born of a terrible truth, because what they see is both infinitely beautiful and terminally horrifying: the unlimited human ability to create or destroy, according to whim. It's no Eastern mystic or psychedelic vision of the emerald beyond, nor is it some Baudelairean perception of the beauty of sleaze and grotesquerie. Maybe what it boils down to is one moment's knowledge of the miracle of life, with its inevitable concomitant, a vertiginous glimpse of the capacity to be hurt, and the capacity to inflict that hurt."
Author: Lester Bangs
18. "A realidade muda, às vezes muito devagar, outras, a uma velocidade vertiginosa. Não estava preparada para isto. A vida é mesmo assim: nunca muda quando pensamos, mas um dia muda mesmo e, quando damos por isso, o jogo virou e perdemos o que tínhamos. Ganhar e perder fazem parte da vida e da morte, tal como a glória e a tristeza, a luz e as sombras."
Author: Margarida Rebelo Pinto
19. "Desde allí vio en un lento remolino, a su madre que saltaba de la cama y vio a su padre detenerla a medio camino y empujarla fácilmente hasta el lecho, y luego lo vio dar media vuelta y venir hacia él, vociferando, y se sintió en el aire, y, de pronto, estaba en su cuarto, a oscuras, y el hombre cuyo cuerpo resaltaba en la negrura le volvió a pegar e la cara,y todavía alcanzó a ver que el hombre se interponía entre él y su madre que cruzaba la puerta, la cogía de un brazo y la arrastraba como si fuera de trapo, y luego la puerta se cerró y él se hundió en una vertiginosa pesadilla"
Author: Mario Vargas Llosa
20. "A cólera é tão exaltante e vertiginosa como a volúpia."
Author: Pascal Quignard
21. "When you're whirling free of the mother ship, when you cut your ropes, slip your chain, step off the map, go absent without leave, scram, vamoose, whatever; suppose that it's then, and only then, that you're actually free to act! To lead the life nobody tells you how to live, or when, or why. In which nobody orders you to go forth and die for them, or for god, or comes to get you because you broke one of the rules, or because you're one of the people who are, for reasons which unfortunately you can't be given, simply not allowed. Suppose you've got to go through the feeling of being lost, into the chaos and beyond; you've got to accept the loneliness, the wild panic of losing your moorings, the vertiginous terror of the horizon spinning round and round like the edge of a coin tossed in the air."
Author: Salman Rushdie
22. "Quassù, la sensazione che la natura ha una sua presenza psichica è fortissima. A volte, quando tutto imbacuccato contro il freddo mi fermo ad osservare, seduto su un grotto, il primo raggio di sole che accende le vette dei ghiacciai e lentamente solleva il velo di oscurità, facendo emergere catene e catene di altre montagne dal fondo lattiginoso delle valli, un'aria di immensa gioia pervade il mondo ed io stesso mi ci sento avvolto, assieme agli alberi, gli uccelli, le formiche: sempre la stessa vita in tante diverse, magnifiche forme."
Author: Tiziano Terzani
23. "The Ridyadh Bodkin and the Kuala Lumpur Mushroom are positive Meccas for all kinds of daredevils-of this much I'm sure. Decadent Saudi princes pilot microlights through huge holes in their facades, while Malaysian spider men scale them using giant suckers in lieu of crampons. All these activities serve to demonstrate is that modernist megaliths have completely suborned the role of natural features in providing us with the essential and vertiginous perspective we require to comprehend accurately our ant-like status."
