1. "El escepticismo tiene por función ser peligroso. Es un desafío a las instituciones establecidas. Si enseñamos a todo el mundo, incluyendo por ejemplo a los estudiantes de educación secundaria, unos hábitos de pensamiento escéptico, probablemente no limitarán su escepticismo a los ovnis, los anuncios de aspirinas y los profetas canalizados de 35.000 años. Quizá empezarán a hacer preguntas importantes sobre las instituciones económicas, sociales, políticas o religiosas. Quizá desafiarán las opiniones de los que están en el poder. ¿Dónde estaremos entonces?"
Author: Carl Sagan
2. "Iz," Alec said tiredly. "It's not like it's one big bad thing. It's a lot of little invisible things. When Magnus and I were traveling, and I'd call from the road, Dad never asked how he was. When I get up to talk in Clave meetings, no one listens, and I don't know if that's because I'm young or if it's because of something else. I saw Mom talking to a friend about her grandchildren and the second I walked into the room they shut up. Irina Cartwright told me it was a pity no one would ever inherit my blue eyes now." He shrugged and looked toward Magnus, who took a hand off the wheel for a moment to place it on Alec's. "It's not like a stab wound you can protect me from. It's a million little paper cuts every day."

3. "I have to give her what you did, don't I?" she said. "Enough of my personal information for Aurilelde to link to her own... so that the congruency between us is complete, and all this works out the way it should..."Kit didn't say anything....But why wouldn't I? Nita thought. To make all this come out all right. She nodded to Irina. Irina nodded back, turned away.And only then did it occur to Nita, with a shock, that this would mean it hadn't been Aurilelde who Kit had been so attracted to. It was her..."

4. "«Merda…» Furono queste le sole parole che riuscirono a raggiungere le labbra di Dima e gli fuoriuscirono dalla bocca.La pelle di Irina era più bianca del solito, quasi trasparente, e i capelli erano luminosi e setosi come una nuvola di zucchero filato. Nonostante lei fosse avvolta di stracci e di sporcizia, per Dima quella che aveva di fronte non era una donna, ma una dea scesa tra i mortali per illuminare la sera e sostituire la luna nel firmamento notturno.Irina si fermò e rimase immobile senza pronunciare alcuna parola. In attesa. Era cosciente di mostrare molto più di quello che qualcuno avrebbe dovuto vedere, ma della complessità di quel momento la preoccupava solo che l'uomo che amava la guardasse con occhi differenti. Lo sguardo di disprezzo per chi è diverso.(brano inedito tratto da Teufel, il Diavolo in uscita a fine Marzo)"

5. "Dima spostò le gambe della ragazza, se le posò in grembo e iniziò a massaggiarle i piedi. Dopo un attimo di silenzio le rispose con falsa timidezza: «Facciamo pace. Ho un regalo per te, ma a una condizione».Sul volto di Irina comparve un sorriso malizioso: «Sentiamo».«Non chiamarmi mai più Dmitrij!» Rispose lui quasi urlando, incollando il suo sguardo a quello furbo di lei. Irina scoppiò a ridere di gusto. Sembrò una lucciola nella notte. Lui ricambiò quell'allegria con un sorriso che mostrò la sua dentatura bianca e perfetta.«Va bene, mio caro Dmitrij, farò la brava.» Lo schernì lei con una smorfia divertita e provocatoria.Dima la sollevò per i piedi e la ribaltò sul divano, bloccandola con il peso del suo corpo, e i due giovani si ritrovarono con le labbra quasi unite. Poteva sentire il respiro di Irina sotto il suo naso, quella vicinanza lo stordì. Avrebbe voluto baciarla con una tale passione da impedirle di respirare. Lei ridacchiò come una bambina."

6. "Yet Irina had once tucked away, she wasn't sure when or why, that happiness is almost definitionally a condition of which you are not aware at the time. To inhabit your own contentment is to be wholly present, with no orbiting satellite to take clinical readings of the state of the planet. Conventionally, you grow conscious of happiness at the very point that it begins to elude you. When not misused to talk yourself into something - when not a lie - the h-word is a classification applied in retrospect. It is a bracketing assessment, a label only decisively pasted onto an era once it is over."
Author: Lionel Shriver
7. "Now, bitterly, with one sweep of the front door, the compassion was spent. To the degree that Lawrence's face was familiar, it was killingly so - as if she had been gradually getting to know him for over nine years and then, bang, he was known. She'd been handed her diploma. There were no more surprises - or only this last surprise, that there were no more surprises. To torture herself, Irina kept looking, and looking, at Lawrence's face, like turning the key in an ignition several times before resigning herself that the battery was dead."
Author: Lionel Shriver
8. "In the past I had often tried to escape the grown-up world of sorrow through my imagination- dreaming that a handsome young lieutenant would ride to my rescue or that a great empresario would discover my musical talents and whisk me away. I had envisioned knights in shining armor and happily ever after scenes to escape from rules or boredom or pain; including a vision of my mother walking through our front door whole and well again. Now I knew that a lifetime of escape led to a life like Aunt Bertie's. My imagination was a gift, but I had to live in the real world. My eyes had been opened this summer to poverty and crime and abuse and I needed to use my imagination not to escape, but to help people like Irina and Katya, to make my own contribution as the women in the women's pavilion had done. I couldn't do it in the same way Jane Adams and my grandmother and Aunt Mat were, but I would find my own way and my own time."
Author: Lynn Austin
9. "Pacatul tau este ca vrei sa traiesti moartea aici, pe pamânt, continua Irina ca si cum nu l-ar fi auzit. Dar pe pamânt omul e dator sa traiasca numai viata. Moartea lui adevarata o va trai în Cer. Daca încearca sa traiasca moartea pe pamânt, pacatuieste si se mistuieste în deznadejde. Si atunci, nici nu traieste cu adevarat, nici nu moare. E ca un fel de strigoi."
Author: Mircea Eliade
10. "Todos cayeron del árbol y se rompieron el brazo alguna vez, todos recuerdan lo travieso que fueron cuando eran niños, lo que no recuerdan, es a sus madres levantándose en medio de la noche para darles una aspirina"
Author: Stephen King
11. "Cudno, ko zdaj podoživljam custvene boje tistih casov, dobim vtis, da moja velika mladostniška kriza ni nastopila, kakor se praviloma dogaja, ko sem odrašcala v dekle, ampak v otroških letih. Pri dvanajstih, trinajstih štirinajstih sem že imela neko svojo žalostno trdnost... Vse je bilo le ena izmed naštetih malih vlogic, ki sem jih morala odigrati, ce sem hotela imeti mir... Niso nas vzgajali za doslednost, temvec za prilagodljivost."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
12. "- T'as pas apporté des fleurs à Irina?-Offrir des fleurs aux femmes est une hérésie. Les fleurs sont des sexes obscènes, elles symbolisent l'éphémère et l'infidélité, elles s'écartèlent sur le bord des chemins, s'offrent à tous les vents, à la trompe des insectes, aux nuages de graines, aux dents des bêtes; on les foule, on les cueille, on y plonge le nez. A la femme qu'on aime il faudrait offrir des pierres, des fossiles, du gneiss, enfin une de ces choses qui durent éternellement et survivent à la flétrissure.C'est ce que j'aurai aimé répondre à Volodia mais mon russe est trop faible et je dis:-Si! mais elles ont fané en route. Le banya, Volodia, tu l'as préparé?"

La vi escrita al tramonto, indescifrable.Un pentagrama sobre el campo alzado:y era un millar de pájaros, cubriendode negras notas los tirantes hilos.Se agrupaban en llaves y en acordesen el papiro rosa de la tarde;(y a un golpe de batuta abandonabanla partitura locos de alegría."
