1. "No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not work those who work with him. Don't knock your friends. Don't knock your enemies. Don't knock yourself."
Author: Alfred Lord Tennyson
2. "After all, much of the fondness avid readers, and certainly collectors, have for their books is related to the books' physical bodies. As much as they are vessels for stories (and poetry, reference information, etc.), books are historical artifacts and repositories for memories-we like to recall who gave books to us, where we were when we read them, how old we were, and so on."
Author: Allison Hoover Bartlett

That's what makes it totalitarian."
Author: Daniel Quinn

"Up there we see everything, Oakland to the left, El Cerrito and Richmond to the right, Marin forward, over the Bay, Berkeley below, all red rooftops and trees of cauliflower and columbine, shaped like rockets and explosions, all those people below us, with humbler views; we see the Bay Bridge, clunkety, the Richmond Bridge, straight, low, the Golden Gate, red toothpicks and string, the blue between, the blue above, the gleaming white Land of the Lost/Superman's North Pole Getaway magic crystals that are San Francisco."

10. "The coup that overthrew President Chavez of Venezuela in April 2002 was greeted with euphoria in Washington. The new president—a businessman—was instantly recognized and the hope expressed that stability and order would return to the country, thus creating the basis for solid future development. The New York Times editorialized in identical language.... The coup was reversed three days later and Chavez then came back to power. The State Department soberly denied any prior knowledge about anything, saying it was all an internal matter. It was to be hoped that a peaceful, democratic, and constitutional solution to the difficulties would be arrived at, they said. The New York Times editorial followed suit, merely adding that perhaps it was not a good idea to embrace the overthrow of a democratically elected regime, however obnoxious, too readily if one of America's fundamental values was support for democracy."
Author: David Harvey
11. "So often, environmentalists and others working to slow the destruction are capable of plainly describing the problems (Who wouldn't be? The problems are neither subtle nor cognitively challenging), yet when faced with the emotionally daunting task of fashioning a response to these clear and clearly insoluble problems, we generally suffer a failure of nerve and imagination. Gandhi wrote a letter to Hitler asking him to stop committing atrocities, and was mystified that it didn't work. I continue to write letters to the editor pointing out untruths, and continue to be surprised each time the newspaper publishes its next absurdity. At least I've stopped writing to politicians."
Author: Derrick Jensen
12. "Think of the jazz improv artist responding to the musical banter among her fellow players onstage. Aside from whatever training they've done in advance, as soon as the curtain opens, they move into unknown territory together, creating something new each time by remaining in a state of undivided presence."
Author: Donna Quesada
13. "The idea of living there, of not having to go back ever again to asphalt and shopping malls and modular furniture; of living there with Charles and Camilla and Henry and Francis and maybe even Bunny; of no one marrying or going home or getting a job in a town a thousand miles away or doing any of the traitorous things friends do after college; of everything remaining exactly as it was, that instant - the idea was so truly heavenly that I'm not sure I thought, even then, it could ever really happen, but I like to believe I did."
Author: Donna Tartt
14. "Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American, and the more panicked talk we hear from people like him... the better off we all are."
Author: Edward Snowden

Author: Federico Moccia
17. "Tenho por irmãos os criadores da consciência do mundo - o dramaturgo atabalhoado W. Shakespeare, o mestre-escola J. Milton, o vadio Dante Alighieri, e, até, se a citação se permite, aquele Jesus Cristo que não foi nada no mundo... O que escrevo hoje é muito melhor do que o poderiam escrever os melhores."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
18. "Dormiu sem o saber, mas sabendo que continuava viva no sono, que lhe sobrava metade da cama e que estava deitada de costas do lado esquerdo, como sempre, mas que lhe fazia falta o contrapeso do outro corpo no outro lado. Pensando em sonhos, pensou que nunca mais poderia dormir assim e, em sonhos, começou a soluçar sem mudar de posição no seu lado, até muito depois de terem acabado de cantar os galos, e acordou-a o sol indesejável da manhã sem ele."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
19. "Ura lui Cain nu era educata, iar Cain, in pornirea lui, nu are cand sa-si sistematizeze afectul. Cain uraste ca un barbar si el omoara fara sa treaca in prealabil prin teritoriul intelectualului si al intemeierilor teoretice. Pe scurt, crima lui Cain nu beneficiaza de aportul intelectualului apt sa organizeze ura. Ea nu are o ideologie."
Author: Gabriel Liiceanu
20. "Aunque tardé mucho tiempo y tuve que recorrer gran parte del mundo para aprender lo que ahora sé sobre el amor, el destino y las decisiones que tomamos, la esencia de ese conocimiento me llegó en un solo instante, encadenado a una pared mientras me torturaban. De algún modo me di cuenta entonces, entre los gritos que llenaban mi cabeza, que incluso en aquella maniatada y sangrienta impotencia, seguía conservando mi libertad; la libertad de odiar a los hombres que me estaban torturando o de perdonarles. No parece mucho, lo sé, pero sometidos al dolor y al suplicio de las cadenas, cuando es lo único que tenemos, esa libertad es un universo de posibilidades. Y la decisión que tomemos, sea el odio o el perdón, puede convertirse en la historia de nuestra vida."
Author: Gregory David Roberts

22. "Hai presente quelle scatole di latta con i biscotti assortiti? Ci sono sempre quelli che ti piacciono e quelli che no. Quando cominci a prendere subito tutti quelli buoni, poi rimangono solo quelli che non ti piacciono. È quello che penso sempre io nei momenti di crisi. Meglio che mi tolgo questi cattivi di mezzo, poi tutto andrà bene. Perciò la vita è una scatola di biscotti."
Author: Haruki Murakami

25. "Después de un tiempo,uno aprende la sutil diferenciaentre sostener una manoy encadenar un alma,y uno aprende que el amorno significa acostarsey una compañía no significa seguridady uno empieza a aprender.Que los besos no son contratos y los regalos no son promesasy uno empieza a aceptar sus derrotas con la cabeza alta y los ojos abiertos y uno aprende a construir todos sus caminos en el hoy,porque el terreno de mañanaes demasiado inseguro para planes...y los futuros tienen una forma de caerse en la mitad.Y después de un tiempouno aprende que si es demasiado,hasta el calorcito del sol quema.Así que uno planta su propio jardíny decora su propia alma, en lugarde esperar a que alguien le traiga flores. Y uno aprende que realmente puede aguantar, que uno realmente es fuerte,que uno realmente vale, y uno aprende y aprende...y con cada día uno aprende."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges

32. "Dominion does not mean domination. We hold dominion over animals only because of our powerful and ubiquitous intellect. Not because we are morally superior. Not because we have a "right" to exploit those who cannot defend themselves. Let us use our brain to move toward compassion and away from cruelty, to feel empathy rather than cold indifference, to feel animals' pain in our hearts."
Author: Marc Bekoff
33. "Hereby we may understand that God, of His special grace, maketh the teachers of the gospel subject to the Cross, and to all kinds of afflicitons, for the salvation of themselves and of the people; for otherwise they could by no means beat down this beast which is called vain-glory."
Author: Martin Luther
34. "Nothing in the church makes people in the church more angry than grace. It's ironic: we stumble into a party we weren't invited to and find the uninvited standing at the door making sure no other uninviteds get in. Then a strange phenomenon occurs: as soon as we are included in the party because of Jesus' irresponsible love, we decide to make grace "more responsible" by becoming self-appointed Kingdom Monitors, guarding the kingdom of God, keeping the riffraff out (which, as I understand it, are who the kingdom of God is supposed to include)."
Author: Mike Yaconelli
35. "Mas neste mundo nada dura muito tempo e, por detrás das ondas decrescentes do alívio, subia a voz ténue do desgosto"

Tu mamá ha lidiado en su propia manera, yo en la mía, y tú en la tuya - dijo, levantando su mano de la lápida de John y levantándose -. Tu mamá odia el mundo, yo lo evito y tú intentas salvarlo."
Author: Nicole Williams
38. "The reflection, the verisimilitude, of life that shines in the fleshly cells from the soul source is the only cause of man's attachment to his body; obviously he would not pay solicitous homage to a clod of clay. A human being falsely identifies himself with his physical form because the life currents from the soul are breath-conveyed into the flesh with such intense power that man mistakes the effect for a cause, and idolatrously imagines the body to have life of its own."
Author: Paramahansa Yogananda
39. "Businesses who are members of Businesses for Social Responsibility or the Social Venture Network are internalizing costs on a voluntary basis and therefore raising their costs of doing business, but their competitors are not required to."

Author: Rachel Caine
41. "In a badly designed book, the letters mill and stand like starving horses in a field. In a book designed by rote, they sit like stale bread and mutton on the page. In a well-made book, where designer, compositor and printer have all done their jobs, no matter how many thousands of lines and pages, the letters are alive. They dance in their seats. Sometimes they rise and dance in the margins and aisles."
Author: Robert Bringhurst
42. "La strada non presaDue strade divergevano in un bosco d'autunnoe dispiaciuto di non poterle percorrere entrambe,essendo un solo viaggiatore, a lungo indugiaifissandone una, più lontano che potevofin dove si perdeva tra i cespugli.Poi presi l'altra, che era buona ugualmentee aveva forse l'aspetto miglioreperché era erbosa e meno calpestatasebbene il passaggio le avesse rese quasi uguali.Ed entrambe quella mattina erano ricoperte di foglieche nessun passo aveva anneritooh, mi riservai la prima per un altro giornoanche se, sapendo che una strada conduce verso un'altra,dubitavo che sarei mai tornato indietro.Lo racconterò con un sospiroda qualche parte tra molti anni:due strade divergevano in un bosco ed io -io presi la meno battuta,e questo ha fatto tutta la differenza."
Author: Robert Frost
43. "Risk management seemed to have completed its transformation into pure entertainment. Dudley seemed the epitome of a risk manager who would drown crossing a river that was 12 inches in depth on average."

44. "Tuo metu, kai atkurtoji respublika dar tik stojosi ant moliniu koju, apyvartoje buvo popiergaliai su faunos nuotraukomis. Banknotai, papuošti meškos, briedžio, zuikio portretais, bet daugiausia banknotu buvo su asilo fizionomija. Dievaži, tai atrode kaip vaiku žaidimas smelio dežeje — užsienieciai myždavo i kelnes matydami, kaip lietuviai už prekes vieni su kitais atsiskaito saldainiu popiereliais. Todel normalus žmones pripažindavo tikrai dolcus."

"Allora sei d'accordo?""Sono d'accordo" dico io."

49. "Enquanto, por efeito de leis e costumes, houver proscrição social, forçando a existência, em plena civilização, de verdadeiros infernos, e desvirtuando, por humana fatalidade, um destino por natureza divino; enquanto os três problemas do século - a degradação do homem pelo proletariado, a prostituição da mulher pela fome, e a atrofia da criança pela ignorância - não forem resolvidos; enquanto houver lugares onde seja possível a asfixia social; em outras palavras, e de um ponto de vista mais amplo ainda, enquanto sobre a terra houver ignorância e miséria, livros como este não serão inúteis."
Author: Victor Hugo
50. "I was too young that time to value her,But now I know her. If she be a traitor, Why, so am I. We still have slept together,Rose at an instant, learned, played, eat together,And wheresoe'er we went, like Juno's swans,Still we went coupled and inseparable."
Author: William Shakespeare
