Something, I know not what, lent this night a savor of Christmas. We told stories, we joked, we sang songs. In the air there was that slight fever that reigns over a gaily prepared feast. And yet we were infinitely poor. Wind, sand, and stars. The austerity of Trappists. But on this badly lighted cloth, a handful of men who possessed nothing in the world but their memories were sharing invisible riches."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

Gone, gone again is Summer the lovely,Gone again on every side,Lost again like a shining fish from the hand Into the shadowy tide."
Author: Edna St. Vincent Millay
15. "Ali za ljubavnog cina ni jedna žena ne ostaje u tom uzvišenom položaju. Vrlo brzo i šarmantno mlada si gospoda uzimaju neka prava koja vrijede izvan njihova stana. Ženi odjednom zaboravljaju pridržati vrata, a do-godi li joj se neka nespretnost, obasiplju je porugom. Zatim joj pocinju lagati, pocinju je varati i muciti te je napokon prestaju nazivati. Namjerno se ne žele ocitovati o svojim namjerama.-Slijede dva-tri pisma na koja ne žele odgovoriti. Žena ceka i ceka, no ceka uzalud. I ne pita se zašto ceka, jer se odgovora boji više od cekanja. A za to vrijeme muškarac u nekom drugom životu odlucno pocinje obradivati neku drugu ženu."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
16. "I am a commuter, not between the city and the village, although I do this frequently; not between the inane idealism of the classroom and the stifling reality beyond it, which I must do for survival and self-respect. I am a commuter between what I am now and what I was and would like to be and it is this commuting at lightning speed, at the oddest hours, that has done havoc to me."
Author: F. Sionil José
17. "Visigoth and Gaul, politics and plague.

Author: Fiddles McMonkeypants
18. "Historically, shamans have always been part of the society where they lived, taking care of its problems, whenever they were allowed to operate. For centuries shamanic cultures have been persecuted in the western world until they were almost entirely exterminated. They have managed to survive in secrecy or through complex esoteric camouflage. Nowadays there seems to be more freedom and this ancient knowledge can re-emerge and be used in our own cultural context and not relegated somewhere else. The world needs shamans able to function on the roads, among the electronic equipment and engines, in the squares and markets of our contemporary society."
Author: Franco Santoro

22. "Daylight would have shown a wilderness weathered and blowzy, a wanton that had lived her summer too fast and too greedily. It would have shown the white birches pale and shivering in a sudden ague, and here and there an ash or a sumac burning red, like a hectic spot, where the first frosts already had set the marks of their galloping consumption on the cheek of the forest, giving warning of the time when the white plague of the winter would make a massacre of all this present glory and turn the trees to naked skeletons and stretch a bony bare cadaver on every steeper hillside to bleach there until the snows covered things up. But now the kindly nighttime had all signs and threats of approaching death, so that each shriveled speckled leaf, as revealed and traced in the waning light, seemed flawless — a perfect part of a perfect tapestry."
Author: Irvin S. Cobb
23. "With the slow fascination of fear, he lifted himself on one arm and turned his eyes toward the blood-curdling blackness of the window. Through it shone the stars! Not Earth's feeble thirty-six hundred Stars visible to the eye; Lagash was in the center of a giant cluster. Thirty thousand mighty suns shone down in a soul-searing splendor that was more frighteningly cold in its awful indifference than the bitter wind that shivered across the cold, horribly bleak world."
Author: Isaac Asimov
24. "History is about winners, not about losers. History is about assessing distortions, not copying out truths. History has much to say about the way the powerful handle power, for power engenders records. History is about evidence, and evidence flagrantly distorts. There is a bias between winners and losers. History is hopeless on love, but excellent on hatred. Such a state of things may not please at all, but then history was never meant to please. One-sidedness lies at the heart of historical knowledge."
Author: J.R. Vincent
25. "I love Rebel Rebel in Manhattan's West Village for vinyl, but record stores are hard to come by these days. I almost don't even use iTunes. I mostly use music subscription services. But I'll go into Rebel Rebel once a month or so and buy everything I love on vinyl."
Author: Jake Shears
26. "Those treasures were stolen from the village they destroyed. The man pulled out a carved wooden horse and the two boys grabbed it at the same time. They pulled at it, fighting for possession.

Author: Jennifer M. Zeiger

Author: Kim Harrison
28. "There i was in late middle age, cut loose in a thoroughly looted, bankrupt nation whose assets had been sold off to foreigners, a nation swamped by unchecked plagues and superstition and illiteracy and hypnotic tv, with virtually no health services for the poor. where to go? what to do?"
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
29. "London was a city of ghosts, some deader than others. Thorne knew that in this respect, it wasn't unlike any other major city - New York or Paris or Sydney - but he felt instinctively that London was .... at the extreme. The darker side of that history, as opposed to the parks, palaces and pearly kings' side that made busloads of Japanese and American tourists gawk and jabber. The hidden history of a city where the lonely, the dispossessed, the homeless, wandered the streets, brushing shoulders with the shadows of those that had come before them. A city in which the poor and the plague-ridden, those long-since hanged for stealing a loaf or murdered for a shilling, jostled for position with those seeking a meal, or a score, or a bed for the night.A city where the dead could stay lost a long time"
Author: Mark Billingham

Author: Megan Whalen Turner

Author: Michael Levitt

Author: Neil Gaiman
37. "Linda seemed to recognize loneliness. Possibly she could see it sitting opposite her, sipping lager and trying not to lose its temper. It was an illness, loneliness--it made you weak, gullible, feebleminded."
Author: Nick Hornby
38. "What the Acropolis in Athens looked like, including the Parthenon of the gods, is best told today at the British Museum in London, which houses the marble statuary removed by Lord Elgin, the British ambassador to Constantinople in 1801-05, and sold at a knockdown price (only 23 million dollars in our money) to the British Museum a couple of decades later. Although Elgin had or bought the permission of the Turkish sultan then ruling Greece, some contemporaries, including the poet and pro-Greek activist Lord Byron, already denounced the Elgin Marbles as 'pillage.' So the Greek government has claimed since the 1970s, but the British won't return them."
Author: Norman F. Cantor
39. "But from within the carton, Morty's American flag - which I know is folded there, at the very bottom, in the official way - tells me, "It's against some Jewish law," and so, on into the car he went with the carton, and then he drove it down to the beach, to the boardwalk, which was no longer there. The boardwalk was gone. Good-bye, boardwalk. The ocean had finally carried it away. The Atlantic is a powerful ocean. Death is a terrible thing. That's a doctor I never heard of. Remarkable. Yes, that's the word for it. It was all remarkable. Good-bye, remarkable. Egypt and Greece good-bye, and good-bye, Rome!"
Author: Philip Roth
40. "Selagi masih hidup, aku masih ingin bermimpi."
Author: Primadonna Angela
41. "Une goutte de pluie tomba dans la mer, et fut tout interdite. "Ô mer, s'écria-t-elle, je suis si peu de chose dans ton immensité!"Pour la récompense de son humilité, Dieu ordonna à un coquillage de l'abriter et de la nourrir. Elle se transforma en une perle splendide, que l'on incrusta dans la couronne d'un roi.Dieu lui fit cet honneur, parce qu'elle avait été humble. Elle vécut, parce qu'elle s'était comparée au néant."
Author: Saadi

43. "Don't you have any friends you could hand with?" – Nick "I do. But the problem is when I hang out with my friends, it usually gets ugly for the rest of you. Especially when we're bored.

Who's your DM?" – Nick "The difference between my group and yours…our toys are real." – Death"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
44. "She knows if the test shows another girl growing in her womb, all of the possible outcomes are wrenching. Jasu can demand she have an abortion, right there at the clinic if they had the money. Or he could simply cast her out, forcing her to endure the shame of raising the child alone. She would be shunned, like the other beecharis in the village. But even this, becoming an outcast from her home and community, would not be as bad as the alternative. She cannot face the agony of giving birth, of holding her baby in her arms, only to have it taken away again. Kavita knows in her soul she simply will not survive that."
Author: Shilpi Somaya Gowda

Author: Travis Barker
49. "Komunitas yang bangkit ini tidak berasal dari kalangan militer atau politikus kerana kedua kelompok ini sedang berada dalam bayang-bayang cobaan sehingga tidak mampu berperan lagi di persimpangan sejarah yang kritis ini. Kerana itu hampir semua sisi kesejarahan meniscayakan tanggungjawab dan menawarkan peran bagi kalangan intelektual untuk merekonstruksi khazanah ilmu pengetahuan dan kebudayaan yang diluluhlantakkan serbuan Mongol di Timur dan Sepanyol di Barat. Mereka harus membangun kedua modal itu sehingga kejayaan ilmiah dapat menggantikan kejayaan politik yang hilang akibat bencana perpecahan dan fanatisme golongan yang akut. Keduanya juga diperlukan guna membangun jaring ruhani dan pemikiran yang memelihara eksistensi dan identitas umat Islam dari keruntuhan, erosi dan perpecahan."
Author: Yusri Abdul Ghani Abdullah
50. "Gerakan kaum intelektual dengan berbagai kecenderungannya bukan gaung isolasi dan kepanikan pemikiran, omong kosong tanpa makna, angan-angan gersang, maupun duduk santai di menara gading yang tinggi apalagi sebuah bentuk pelarian dari realitas kehidupan. Pada hakikatnya gerakan ini merupakan sebuah upaya mulia guna bangkit melawan musuh lewat wacana ketika perlawanan melalui kekuatan militer dan politik mengalami kebuntuan."
