Author: George Saunders

It isn't about going skyclad to the Holy Rites, or meditating each day upon the divine. Faith is about what you do. It's about aspiring to be better and nobler and kinder than you are. It's about making sacrifices for the good of others - even when there's not going to be anyone telling you what a hero you are."
Author: Jim Butcher

Eine Mutter erwarted die Wiederkehr ihres Kindes immer: ganz gleichgueltig, ob es in ein fernes Land gewandert ist, in ein nahes oder den Tod."
Author: Joseph Roth
25. "Das Schöne an der Zeit ist, dass sie ohne Hilfestellung vergeht und sich nicht an dem stört, was in ihr geschieht.

Folglich, beschließt Sebastian, ist das Leben kinderleicht."
Author: Juli Zeh

He's supposed to be eccentric. He's a novelist."
