1. "Oh, era suntuoso, y la suntuosidad hecha carne. Los trombones crujían como láminas de oro bajo mi cama, y detrás de mi golová las trompetas lanzaban lenguas de plata, y al lado de la puerta los timbales me asaltaban las tripas y brotaban otra vez como un trueno de caramelo. Oh, era una maravilla de maravillas. Y entonces, como un ave de hilos entretejidos del más raro metal celeste, o un vino de plata que flotaba en una nave del espacio, perdida toda gravedad, llegó el solo de violín imponiéndose a las otras cuerdas, y alzó como una jaula de seda alrededor de mi cama. Aquí entraron la flauta y el oboe, como gusanos platinados, en el espeso tejido de plata y oro. Yo volaba poseído por mi propio éxtasis, oh hermanos."
Author: Anthony Burgess
2. "The ecstatic state of wholeness is bound to be transient because it has no part in the total pattern of ‘adaptation through maladaptation' which is characteristic of our species…the hunger of imagination, the desire and pursuit of the whole, take origin from the realization that something is missing, from awareness of incompleteness."
Author: Anthony Storr
3. "For men like him, to fuck or rape a whore is not an achievement. Putting his filth into a hole that has already served hundreds before him does not engender the slightest masculine pride. Isn't that right, my sang-e saboor? You should know. Men like him are afraid of whores. And do you know why? I'll tell you, my sang-e saboor: when you fuck a whore, you don't dominate her body. It's a matter of exchange. You give her money, and she gives you pleasure. And I can tell you that often she's the dominant one. It's she who is fucking you." The woman calms down. Her voice serene, she continues, "So, raping a whore is not rape. But raping a young girl's virginity, a woman's honor! Now that's your creed!"
Author: Atiq Rahimi
4.

Author: Auguste Comte
5. "Exploration! Exploring the past! We students in the camps seminar considered ourselves radical explorers. We tore open the windows and let in the air, the wind that finally whirled away the dust that society had permitted to settle over the horrors of the past. We made sure people could see. And we placed no reliance on legal scholarship. It was evident to us that there had to be convictions. It was just as evident as conviction of this or that camp guard or police enforcer was only the prelude. The generation that had been served by the guards and enforcers, or had done nothing to stop them, or had not banished them from its midst as it could have done after 1945, was in the dock, and we explored it, subjected it to trial by daylight, and condemned it to shame."
Author: Bernhard Schlink
6. "Supe entonces que dedicaría cada minuto que nos quedaba juntos a hacerla feliz, a reparar el daño que le había hecho y a devolverle lo que nunca supe darle. Estas páginas serás nuestra memoria hasta que su último aliento se apague en mis brazos y la acompañe mar adentro, donde rompe la corriente, para sumergirme con ella para siempre y poder al fin huir a un lugar donde ni el cielo ni el infierno nos puedan encontrar jamás."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
7. "Fan would have expected that one or two of the Girls would have long rebelled at spending a life in a room, would have begged, say, the dentist, to help them steal away, but the funny thing about this existence is that once firmly settled we occupy it with less guard than we know. We watch ourselves routinely brushing our teeth, or coloring the wall, or blowing off the burn from a steaming yarn of soup noodles, and for every moment there is a companion moment that elides onto it, a secret span that deepens the original's stamp. We feel ever obliged by everyday charges and tasks. They conscript us more and more. We find world enough in a frame. Until at last we take our places at the wheel, or wall, or line, having somewhere forgotten that we can look up."
Author: Chang Rae Lee
8. "You could think of extraordinary examples to the contrary: The Grapes of Wrath... and even into the 70s."
Author: Charlton Heston

Author: Colin Wilson
10. "If the USA doesn't start learning how to put personal egos aside for the sustainability of a nation, then these "mighty" United States will be no better than the politically divided commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Where progress is slowed because each party thinks any idea from the other party must be stupid or without validity and Independence has become a distant dream squashed by corruption. I suggest politicians go back to kindergarten to learn the basics in decent humanity. The notions of sharing and respect obviously didn't stick the first time."
Author: Cristina Marrero

I felt the suicidal despair of all who longed to do what they couldn't, what only a few in each century could – whether blessed or cursed in spirit. No achievement was ever finite. There was no absolute summit. No peak of Everest to plant a flag on. Success was someone else's opinion."
Author: Dick Francis
16. "But nowadays everybody's a comedian, even the weather girls and continuity announcers. We laugh at everything.

No more rain showers in the desert, just mud and drizzle everywhere, occasionally illuminated by the flash of paparazzi."
Author: Douglas Adams

Author: Edward De Bono

(and) he is speechless'."
Author: James Henry Breasted

26. "La plecare m-a cunondus Dinu [Noica] (...) ?i, cu toate ca îi recunosc lui D. o anumita inteligen?a ?i înca alte câteva calita?i, este totu?i un om pe care-l consider (...) strain de mine. De fapt, ceea ce mi-l face antipatic nu este faptul ca judeca strâmb, nici faptul ca are înclinare spre ?i credin?a în lucruri pe care eu le consider cu totul superficiale. Cunosc atâ?ia oameni care au creierul construit alandala, atâ?ia cu credin?e primitive, dar care, indiferent de asta, îmi sunt foarte dragi. Îmi este antipatic pentru ca simt în el o ipocrizie cum rar am mai întâlnit la o creatura umana, la acest nivel. N-are niciun graunte de sinceritate, nici macar fa?a de el însu?i. Ma gândesc uneori ca poate sa fie patologic... dar asta sa fie oare o scuza? Poate cel mult o explica?ie."
Author: Jeni Acterian

Author: Katie Alender
32. "Things never happen the way you plan. Take it a second at a time. Stay in the moment. It's the only way to control it. Your thoughts can paralyze you. They make you second-guess and that's when you lose. You mentally beat yourself. Believe you can handle anything. Look at something that's bigger than you and take it all in, the enormousness of it. Drown in it. Then take a step back. Comparmentalize it. Remember, anything's attainable. And take every risk you can, as long as you trust yourself."
Author: Katie Kacvinsky

Some things mark your soul, not in years but in blood and pain and selling off parts of yourself to get the bad guys, until you finally look in the mirror and aren't sure which side you're on anymore. There comes a point when having a badge doesn't make you the good guy, it just makes you one of the guys. I needed to be one of the good guys, or what the hell was I doing?"
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

38. "Fear drove many on deck that were used to avoiding the night winds and the spray. Some thought the vessel could not live through the night, and it seemed less dreadful to stand out in the midst of the wild tempest and see the peril that threatened than to be shut up in the sepulchral cabins, under the dim lamps, and imagine the horrors that were abroad on the ocean. And once out—once where they could see the ship struggling in the strong grasp of the storm—once where they could hear the shriek of the winds and face the driving spray and look out upon the majestic picture the lightnings disclosed, they were prisoners to a fierce fascination they could not resist, and so remained. It was a wild night—and a very, very long one."
