1. "Among some of the youngsters, I think reality TV has installed that culture into them and inspired a few of them into wanting to be 'TV celebrities.'"
Author: Alan Sugar
2. "Of those of us who comprise the real clan of the book, who read not to judge the reading of others but to take the measure of ourselves. Of those of us who read because we love it more than anything, who feel about bookstores the way some people feel about jewelers. The silence about this was odd, both because there are so many of us and because we are what the world of books is really about. We are the people who once waited for the newest installment of Dickens's latest novel and who kept battered copies of Catcher in the Rye in our back pockets and backpacks. We are the ones who saw to it that Pride and Prejudice never went out of print."
Author: Anna Quindlen
3. "Mais quelle étrange leçon de géographie je reçus là! Guillaumet ne m'enseignait pas l'Espagne; il me faisait de l'Espagne une amie. Il ne me parlait ni d'hydrographie, nie de populations, ni de cheptel. Il ne me parlait pas de Guadix, mais des trois orangers qui, près de Guadix, bordent un champ : " Méfie-toi d'eux, marque-les sur ta carte... " Et les trois orangers y tenaient désormais plus de place que la Sierra Nevada. Il ne me parlait pas de Lorca, mais d'une simple ferme près de Lorca. D'une ferme vivante. Et de son fermier. Et de sa fermière. Et ce couple prenait, perdu dans l'espace, à quinze cents kilomètres de nous, une importance démesurée. Bien installés sur le versant de leur montagne, pareils à des gardiens de phare, ils étaient prêts, sous leur étoiles, à porter secours à des hommes.(Terre des Hommes, ch. I)"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
4. "My life came complete with a factory-installed biological brother seven years my senior."
Author: Augusten Burroughs
5. "So one time when I was working in this motel one of the toilets leaked and I had to replace the flapper ball. Here's what it said on the package; I kept it till I knew it by heart: ‘Please Note. Parts are included for all installations, but no installation requires all of the parts.' That's kind of my philosophy about men. I don't think there's an installation out there that could use all of my parts."
Author: Barbara Kingsolver
6. "Listeners are kind of ambushed... if a poem just happens to be said when they're listening to the radio. The listener doesn't have time to deploy what I call their 'poetry deflector shields' that were installed in high school - there's little time to resist the poem."
Author: Billy Collins

8. "I may not be much good at most things, but if I didn't have the pleasure of planning and installing shows, and doing it better than anyone else, I would have stopped buying art many years ago."
Author: Charles Saatchi
9. "Nous savions que si l'intelligence du texte est une rude et solitaire conquête de l'esprit, la blague stupide établit, elle, une connivence reposante qui ne se partage qu'entre amis de confiance. C'est avec nos intimes que nous échangeons les histoires les plus bêtes, façon de rendre un hommage implicite à la finesse de leur esprit. Avec les autres, on fait les malins, on déballe son savoir, on en installe, on séduit."
Author: Daniel Pennac
10. "As suburban children we floated at night in swimming pools the temperature of blood; pools the color of Earth as seen from outer space. We would float and be naked—pretending to be embryos, pretending to be fetuses—all of us silent save for the hum of the pool filter. Our minds would be blank and our eyes closed as we floated in warm waters, the distinction between our bodies and our brains reduced to nothing—bathed in chlorine and lit by pure blue lights installed underneath diving boards. Sometimes we would join hands and form a ring like astronauts in space; sometimes when we felt more isolated in our fetal stupor we would bump into each other in the deep end, like twins with whom we didn't even know we shared a womb."
Author: Douglas Coupland
11. "For more than a decade, the United States had been giving large-scale military aid to the French colonialists, and then to the American-installed but authoritarian South Vietnamese government, to fight nationalists and communists in Vietnam. More than 23,000 U.S. military advisers were there by the end of 1964, occasionally engaging in combat. On the other side of the world, the American public knew and cared little about the guerrilla war. In fact, few knew exactly where Vietnam was. Nevertheless, people were willing to go along when their leaders told them that action was essential to resist communist aggression."
Author: Edward S. Greenberg
12. "(...) l'orientalisme américain d'aujourd'hui est issu des écoles de langues de l'armée installées pendant et après la guerre, de l'intérêt soudain porté par le gouvernement et par certains groupements corporatifs au monde non occidental pendant l'après-guerre, de la compétition avec l'URSS pendant la période de la guerre froide, et d'un reste d'attitude missionnaire à l'égard d'Orientaux considérés comme mûrs pour être réformés et rééduqués."
Author: Edward W. Said
13. "Franz said 'Your picture, Viki, suggests that sense of breaking-up we feel in the modern world. Families, nations, classes, other loyalty groups falling apart. Things changing before you get to know them. Death on the installment plan – or decay by jumps. Instantaneous birth. Something out of nothing. Reality replacing science fiction so fast that you can't tell which is which. Constant sense of deja-vu - 'I was here before, but when, how?' Even the possibility that there's no real continuity between events, just inexplicable gaps. And of course every gap – every crack – means a new perching place for horror."
Author: Fritz Leiber
14. "Aplaudo hasta que mis manos arden. Aplaudo como si haciéndolo pudiera alargar la noche, como si pudiera transformar la Noche de Reyes en una noche de veinticuatro horas. Aplaudo para poder aferrarme a este sentimiento. Aplaudo porque sé lo que sucederá cuando me detenga. Es lo mismo que pasa cuando apago una muy buena película —una en la que me he sumergido— que es ser lanzada de regreso a mi propia realidad y un vacío se instalará en mi pecho. Algunas veces, miraré una película una y otra vez para recuperar esa sensación de estar dentro de algo real. Lo cual, lo sé, no tiene sentido."
Author: Gayle Forman
15. "A tyrant institutionalises stupidity, but he is the first servant of his own system and the first to be installed within it."
Author: Gilles Deleuze
16. "Mamá sabía ser alegre. Mamá sabía ser temerosa. Mamá sabía olvidar fácilmente. Y, sin embargo tenía buena memoria. Mamá me daba con la puerta en la narices, y sin embargo, me admitía en su baño. A veces mamá se me perdía, pero su instinto me encontraba. Cuando yo rompía vidrios, mamá ponía la masilla. A veces se instalaba en el error, aunque a su alrededor hubiera sillas suficientes. Aun cuando se encerraba en sí misma, para mí siempre estaba abierta. Temía las corrientes de aire y sin embargo no paraba de levantar el viento. Gastaba, y no le gustaba pagar impuestos. Yo era el revés de su medalla. Cuando mamá jugaba corazones ganaba siempre."
Author: Günter Grass
17. "I can be working on a collection and a film at the same time. It can take a lot out of me, but the processes come from the same source. From a brief I set myself I can make a film, I can make a collection, I can make an installation."
Author: Hussein Chalayan
18. "Indeed, and crucially so, the serial form tookthe control of the novel away from the reader and left him in an imagined space that could not be thought of in terms of the physical space still to be read. At the end of each instalment the reader would contemplate a vacuum, an 'end' which looked forward to a continuing verbal space which he could not measure.He might speculate but he could not know."
Author: Ian Gregor
19. "I clawed my eyes open and rolled off my bed. For some reason, someone had moved the floor several feet lower than I had expected, and I fell and crashed with a thud.Ow.A blond head popped over the side of the bed, and a familiar male voice asked, "Are you okay down there?"Curran. The Beast Lord was in my bed. No, wait a minute. I didn't have a bed, because my insane aunt had destroyed my apartment. I was mated to the Beast Lord, which meant I was in the Keep, in Curran's rooms, and in his bed. Our bed. Which was four feet high. Right."Kate?""I'm fine.""Would you like me to install one of those child playground slides for you?"
Author: Ilona Andrews
20. "Have you started already? Keep it up! Are you getting tired? Don't give up! Did you quit? You can do it again! Great accomplishments do not come with big steps; they come with little steps taken in regular installments! Do it and do it again and again!"
Author: Israelmore Ayivor
21. "You are heading towards the top if you raise the bar of your standards inch by inch each hour! There is no quick way to success; it comes in installments. Every day's activity is a minor contribution to a heavy pay of success. Don't waste the day!"
Author: Israelmore Ayivor
22. "Miss West is never idle. Below, in the big after-room, she does her own laundering. Nor will she let the steward touch her father's fine linen. In the main cabin she has installed a sewing-machine. All hand-stitching, and embroidering, and fancy work she does in the deck-chair beside me. She avers that she loves the sea and the atmosphere of sea-life, yet, verily, she has brought her home-things and land-things along with her--even to her pretty china for afternoon tea."
Author: Jack London
23. "If she can't stand the heat, she needs to stay out of the kitchen," Mr. Rush insisted."Or you could air-condition the kitchen," I said. "Or at least install a fan to ventilate some of the fumes."

Author: Joanna Wylde
27. "Every February, (Charles)Shultz drew a strip about Charlie Brown's failure to get any valentines. Schroeder, in one installment, chides Violet for trying to fob off a discarded valentine on Charlie Brown several days after Valentine's Day, and Charlie Brown shoves Schroeder aside with the words "Don't interfere--I'll take it!" But the story Schulz told about his own childhood experience with valentines was very different. When he was in first grade, he said, his mother helped him make a valentine for each of his classmates, so that nobody would be offended by not getting one, but he felt too shy to put them in the box at the front of the classroom, and so he took them all home again to his mother."
Author: Jonathan Franzen
28. "O Medo degrada as pessoas, meu caro jovem. Se você mantiver a pressão, semanas, meses a fio, o Medo acaba por funcionar como uma doença. Ao princípio é apanas um incómodo persistente, como uma dor de dentes, como uma dor de cabeça, uma dor que se instala no espírito, e vai corroendo tudo. Pouco a pouco a pessoa começa a alterar o seu comportamento, começa a imaginar situações de perigo. Torna-se paranóica, perde o gosto pela vida e entra em depressão. Eventualmente mata-se."
Author: José Eduardo Agualusa
29. "Toda a minha obra pode ser entendida como uma reflexão sobre o erro. Sim, sobre o erro como verdade instalada e por isso suspeitosa, sobre o erro como deturpação intencional de factos, sobre o erro como ilusão dos sentidos e da mente, mas também sobre o erro como ponto necessário para chegar ao conhecimento."
Author: José Saramago
30. "His grace is cheapened when you think that He has only forgiven you of your sins up to the time you got saved, and after that point, you have to depend on your confession of sins to be forgiven. God's forgiveness is not given in installments."
Author: Joseph Prince
31. "I think you know how it works, Senator. The big chemical companies fill the coffers of one of your colleagues who is a lawmaker from an agricultural state such as, well, let's take Iowa, for example, and the lawmaker recommends the president to install industry executives in high positions, such as the head of the FDA or the EPA, and, this way, the industry can approve its own products without safety testing."
Author: Kenneth Eade
32. "I love my little Mac G4 computer and we just had Internet installed on the bus... we all have little Macs actually, there's four of us on the bus, and we all just sit there and surf the Internet!"
Author: Lee Ann Womack
33. "I'm unsure why one trifling incident this afternoon has moved me to write to you. But since we've been separated, I may most miss coming home to deliver the narrative curiosities of my day, the way a cat might lay mice at your feet: the small, humble offerings that couples proffer after foraging in separate backyards. Were you still installed in my kitchen, slathering crunchy peanut butter on Branola though it was almost time for dinner, I'd no sooner have put down the bags, one leaking a clear vicious drool, than this little story would come tumbling out, even before I chided that we're having pasta tonight so would you please not eat that whole sandwich."
Author: Lionel Shriver
34. "L'habitude! aménageuse habile mais bien lente et qui commence par laisser souffrir notre esprit pendant des semaines dans une installation provisoire; mais que malgré tout il est bien heureux de trouver, car sans l'habitude et réduit à ses seuls moyens il serait impuissant à nous rendre un logis habitable."
Author: Marcel Proust
35. "L'enfant dira : je lui ai demandé cinq cent piastres pour le retour en France. La mère dira que c'est bien, que c'est ce qu'il faut pour s'installer à Paris, elle dira : ça ira avec cinq cent piastres. L'enfant sait ce qu'elle fait, elle, c'est ce que la mère aurait choisi que fasse son enfant, si elle avait osé, si elle en avait la force, si le mal que faisait la pensée n'était pas là chaque jour, exténuant."
Author: Marguerite Duras
36. "In any case, it's the cowardice of people like you who give dictators the chance to install themselves!"
Author: Marjane Satrapi
37. "[W]hat counts as ‘realistic', what seems possible at any point in the social field, is defined by a series of political determinations. An ideological position can never be really successful until it is naturalized, and it cannot be naturalized while it is still thought of as a value rather than a fact. Accordingly, neoliberalism has sought to eliminate the very category of value in the ethical sense. Over the past thirty years, capitalist realism has successfully installed a ‘business ontology' in which it is simply obvious that everything in society, including healthcare and education, should be run as a business. … [E]mancipatory politics must always destroy the appearance of a ‘natural order', must reveal what is presented as necessary and inevitable to be a mere contingency, just as it must make what was previously deemed to be impossible seem attainable."
Author: Mark Fisher
38. "Algún día, es posible que tengas que pagar un precio muy alto por todo el placer y la alegría que el amor provoca. Y cuanto más intensamente ames, más intenso será el dolor futuro. Conocerás la angustia de los celos, la incomprensión, la sensación de rechazo y de injusticia. Sentirás el frío hasta en tus huesos, y tu sangre formará cubitos de hielo que notarás comer bajo tu piel. La mecánica de tu corazón explotará. Yo misma te instalé éste reloj, conozco perfectamente los límites de su funcionamiento. Como mucho es posible que resista la intensidad del placer, pero no es lo bastante sólido para aguantar los pesares del amor."
Author: Mathias Malzieu
39. "Most of Csongor's time in T'Rain had been spent blundering about in a state of hapless newbie confusion. Only his long experience as a system administrator, struggling with Byzantine software installations, had prevented hum from plummeting into despair and simply giving up. Not that any of the sysadmin's knowledge and skills were applicable here. The psychological stance was the thing: the implicit faith, a little naive and a little cocky, that by banging his head against the problem for long enough he'd be able to break through in the end."
Author: Neal Stephenson
40. "We'd taken up our positions on the benches between the school hall and a newly-installed outdoor basketball court. Being hip-hoppers, we were obliged to be obsessed with basketball. None of us had a ball."
Author: Nikesh Shukla
41. "Ay la ficción que daño hace, y Sebastián debería haberlo sabido, viniendo de un país cuyo héroe más grande lleva un orinal en la cabeza. No leas tanto, le decían de niño, y no hizo caso, y así le ha ido. La ficción puede muy bien instalarse en el alma de un hombre hasta destruirla. Sebastián había visto y admirado a lo largo de su vida, hombres capaces de hacer cosas en el mundo real e incapacitados para la ficción."
Author: Ray Loriga
42. "In this context, I believe it is an imperative for the new President to select and install his team as quickly as possible, and this does not imply that he must or should appoint members of the 'other' party to his Cabinet, which could contribute to inaction and inefficiency."
Author: Richard V. Allen
43. "Piper glanced at the digital clock. "So…we have exactly one hour to find your runaway table, get back your synco-whatsit, and install it in this engine, or the Argo II explodes, destroying Bunker Nine and most of the woods." "Basically," Leo said."
Author: Rick Riordan
44. "So, please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookcase on the wall."
Author: Roald Dahl
45. "Ancient Rule of Twenty-one: if you do anything for twenty-one days in a row, it will be installed as a habit."
Author: Robin S. Sharma
46. "While still practising law, he'd run a hearse-rental agency. Then, later, he'd bought into a handkerchief factory in Baker Park. Their most famous innovation was the funeral hankerchief, a plain white cotton handkerchief with a black border. Not long afterwards he patented the first black-edged tissue. He'd made millions, apparently, though nobody knew what he'd done with the money. His only extravagance had been to install an elevator in the house, so he could move between floors without getting out of his wheelchair. 'So what did he mean about hearing money?' Jed asked. 'It's his factory across the river. He claims he can hear the money being made."
Author: Rupert Thomson
47. "[T]his readiness to assume the guilt for the threats to our environment is deceptively reassuring: We like to be guilty since, if we are guilty, it all depends on us. We pull the strings of the catastrophe, so we can also save ourselves simply by changing our lives. What is really hard for us (at least in the West) to accept is that we are reduced to the role of a passive observer who sits and watches what our fate will be. To avoid this impotence, we engage in frantic, obsessive activities. We recycle old paper, we buy organic food, we install long-lasting light bulbs—whatever—just so we can be sure that we are doing something. We make our individual contribution like the soccer fan who supports his team in front of a TV screen at home, shouting and jumping from his seat, in the belief that this will somehow influence the game's outcome."
Author: Slavoj Žižek
48. "This philistinism of interpretation is more rife in literature than in any other art. For decades now, literary critics have understood it to be their task to translate the elements of the poem or play or novel or story into something else. Sometimes a writer will be so uneasy before the naked power of his art that he will install within the work itself - albeit with a little shyness, a touch of the good taste of irony - the clear and explicit interpretation of it. Thomas Mann is an example of such an overcooperative author. In the case of more stubborn authors, the critic is only too happy to perform the job."
Author: Susan Sontag
49. "Tesson évoquant les livres qu'il compte lire durant son ermitage: "Quelques guides naturalistes de la collection Delachaux et Niestlé sur les oiseaux, les plantes et les insectes. La moindre des choses quand on s'invite dans les bois est de connaître le nom de ses hôtes. L'affront serait l'indifférence. Si des gens débarquaient dans mon appartement pour s'y installer de force, j'aimerais au moins qu'ils m'appelassent par mon prénom."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
50. "If you can reach down deep inside and grab on to the hope and courage we all have installed in us to move forward down the roads of life...it will help you grow stronger each day overcoming all despair."
Author: Timothy Pina
