1. "Aussi, préférant mille fois la mort à une arrestation, j'accomplissais des choses étonnantes, et qui, plus d'une fois, me donnèrent cette preuve que le trop grand soin que nous prenons de notre corps est à peu près le seul obstacle à la réussite de ceux de nos projets qui ont besoin d'une décision rapide et d'une exécution vigoureuse et déterminée. En effet, une fois qu'on a fait le sacrifice de sa vie, on n'est plus l'égal des autres hommes, ou plutôt les autres hommes ne sont plus vos égaux, et quiconque a pris cette résolution sent, à l'instant même, décupler ses forces et s'agrandir son horizon.

Their location, far up in the sky, gave them the feeling of detachment they needed."

Leur but à tous en quittant Moscou n'était pas de conquérir, comme autrefois, mais de garder ce qu'ils avaient pris.

Author: Mark Sanchez
36. "The Fatigues all talk like that. Big-Picture-speak, Risa calls it. Seeing the whole, and none of the parts. It's not just in their speech but in their eyes as well.When they look at Risa, she can tell they don't really see her. They seem to see the mob of Unwinds more as a concept rather than a collection of anxious kids, and so they miss all the subtle social tremors that shake things just as powerfully as the jets shake the roof."

That should be an international scandal."

The government seized all five of his homes, his three boats, two jets, a helicopter, 14 cars, and all of his assets except the $200 million he stashed for a rainy day in an offshore bank account."
Author: Phil Wohl

Author: Sebastian Thrun

On ne le répétera jamais assez : toutes ces expériences, toutes ces sociétés modernes ne peuvent pas être jugées uniquement en fonction de l'efficacité de leur structure économique.

Today's Quote

The [Booker] prize was actually responsible in many ways for my political activism. I won this thing and I was suddenly the darling of the new emerging Indian middle class – they needed a princess. They had the wrong woman. I had this light shining on me at the time, and I knew that I had the stage to say something about what was happening in my country. What is exciting about what I have done since is that writing has become a weapon, some kind of ammunition."
