2. "Jer u obicnom, svagdašnjem svijetu ljudskih odnopsa bio je neobicno nalik na stranca. Nelagodno se osjecao medu ljudima i bilo mu je teško ili cak nemoguce zapodjenuti razgovor bilo s kime osim s onim koji je govorio njemu vlastitim, intelektualnim jezikom ideja. U emocionalnom je pogledu bio stranac."
Author: Aldous Huxley

5. "The evening before I departed I stood on the rim of a lagoon on Isla Rabida. Flamingos rode on its dark surface like pink swans, apparently asleep. Small, curved feathers, shed from their breasts, drifted away from them over the water on a light breeze. I did not move for an hour. It was a moment of such peace, every troubled thread in a human spirit might have uncoiled and sorted itself into a graceful order. Other flamingos stood in the shallows with diffident elegance in the falling light, not feeding but only staring off toward the ocean. They seemed a kind of animal I had never quite seen before."
Author: Barry Lopez
6. "I guess I rooted for the Creature from the Black Lagoon."

7. "The cashier had long since left for home. By now she was probably bustling by an unmade bed that was waiting in her small room like a boat to carry her off to the black lagoons of sleep, into the complicated world of dreams. The person sitting in the box office was only a wraith, an illusory phantom looking with tired, heavily made-up eyes at the empyiness of light, fluttering her lashes thoughtlessly to disperse the golden dust of drowsiness scattered by the elctric bulbs."
Author: Bruno Schulz
8. "Tehát ha azt kérdeznék, tudom-e már, hogy kell nonek lenni, így felelnék: „Oszintén szólva nagyjából igen." Mert ha az ebben a könyvben szereplo történetek egyetlen revelációvá állnak össze, az a következo: nagyjából… szarni kell az egész dologra. Tenni kell a noi lét mindezen állítólagos „problémáira". Nem kell hajlandónak lenni egyáltalán problémaként tekinteni oket. Igen – a tett, amit átüto ereju feminista megvilágosodásam váltott ki belolem, egy… nagy vállrándítás volt."
Author: Caitlin Moran
9. "In effetti stamattina ho proprio versato tutte le lacrime che avevo in corpo. Sarebbe più giusto dire che il corpo ha versato tutte le lacrime accumulate dalla mente nel corso di quest'inverosimile carneficina. La quantità di sé che viene eliminata con le lacrime! Piangendo si fa molta più acqua che pisciando, ci si pulisce infinitamente meglio che tuffandosi nel lago più puro, si posa il fardello dello spirito sul marciapiede del binario d'arrivo. Una volta che l'anima si è liquefatta, si può celebrare il ricongiungimento con il corpo. Stanotte il mio dormirà bene. Ho pianto di sollievo, credo. [...] Onore alle lacrime!"
Author: Daniel Pennac
10. "Moriori might have endured, however, were it not for reports arriving in New Zealand depicting the Chathams as a veritable Canaan of eel-stuffed lagoons, shellfish-carpeted coves & inhabitants who understand neither combat nor weapons. To the ears of the Ngati Tama & Ngati Mutunga, two clans of the Taranaki Te Ati Awa Maori"
Author: David Mitchell

Author: Emma Cameron
12. "Lagrimas ocultas Lagrimas ocultasSe me ponho a cismar em outras erasEm que ri e cantei, em que era q'rida,Parece-me que foi noutras esferas,Parece-me que foi numa outra vida...E a minha triste boca doloridaQue dantes tinha o rir das Primaveras,Esbate as linhas graves e severasE cai num abandono de esquecida!E fico, pensativa, olhando o vago...Toma a brandura plácida dum lagoO meu rosto de monja de marfim...E as lágrimas que choro, branca e calma,Ninguém as vê brotar dentro da alma!Ninguém as vê cair dentro de mim!"
Author: Florbela Espanca
13. "Ela teve que fazer um esforço sobrenatural para não morrer quando uma potência ciclônica, assombrosamente regulada levantou-a pela cintura e despojou-a da sua intimidade com três patadas, e esquartejou-a como a um passarinho. Conseguiu dar graças a Deus por ter nascido, antes de perder a consciência no prazer inconcebível daquela dor insuportável, chapinhando no lago fumegante da rede que absorveu como um mata-borrão a explosão do seu sangue."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
14. "The clue to everything a man should love and fear in her was there right from the start in the ironic smile that primed and swelled the archery of her full lips. There was pride in that smile and confidence in the set of her fine nose. Without understanding why I knew beyond question that a lot of people would mistake her pride for arrogance and confuse her confidence with impassivity. I didn't make that mistake. My eyes were lost swimming floating free in the shimmering lagoon of her steady even stare. Her eyes were large and spectacularly green. It was the green that trees are in vivid dreams. It was the green that the sea would be if the sea were perfect."
Author: Gregory David Roberts

Give them me.No.Then I will howl all night in the reeds,Lie in the mud and howl for them.Goblin, why do you love them so?They are better than stars or water,Better than voices of winds that sing,Better than any man's fair daughter,Your green glass beads on a silver ring.Hush, I stole them out of the moon.Give me your beads, I want them.No.I will howl in the deep lagoonFor your green glass beads, I love them so.Give them me. Give them.No."
Author: Harold Monro

18. "No tiene usted por qué compararse con los demás, y si la Naturaleza le ha creado para murciélago, no debe usted aspirar a ser avestruz. A veces se tiene usted por demasiado raro y se reprocha seguir caminos distintos a los que sigue la mayoría. Deje usted eso. Contemple el fuego, contemple las nubes, y en cuanto surjan los presagios y comiencen a sonar en su alma las voces, abandónese a ellas sin preguntarse antes si le conviene o le parece bien al señor profesor, a papá o a un buen dios cualquiera."
Author: Hermann Hesse
19. "Oreign holidaymakers in the Maldives, one of the world's most popular luxury honeymoon destination, were not happy earlier this year when their hotel bookings were cancelled at short notice.The reason was that Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, had booked out three whole islands for nearly a month.It is just one example of the growing role of Saudi investment in the archipelago, a factor which may make the Maldives' government unwilling to ruffle the feathers of Saudi Arabia's rulers."The well-being of our guests is always our primary concern," a spokeswoman for the Anantara resorts told the British newspaper, the Daily Mail, which reported that some tourists were angry at being moved to make way for the Saudi prince."
Author: Irak.Ibrahim Hussain Didi
20. "Bwenawa brought my attention to two wooden planks raised about four feet above the ground. On the ledges were lagoon fish sliced open and lying in the sun, the carcasses just visible through an enveloping blizzard of flies. "You see, " said Bwenawa.

23. "I grew up down in Florida, and in the Keys, there's this place called Sea Camp which was not unlike Space Camp, except you explored the sea. And so that kind of whetted my appetite for that. But then I ended up swimming in a lagoon full of Cassiopeia jellyfish, and that quickly quashed that desire to be a marine biologist."
Author: Joe Lo Truglio

26. "Traut je 2001. godine, dok su se pripremale dagnje na buzaru, rekao da je život neporecivo izopacen. "Ali naši mozgovi dovoljno su veliki da nam omoguce da se prilagodimo neizbežnom burlesknom lakrdijašenju", nastavio je, "pomocu veštacki stvorenih epifanija poput ove." Mislio je na pripremanje dagnji na plaži pod zvezdanim nebom. "Ako ovo nije lepo, šta jeste?" rekao je on.Izjavio je da je klip kukuruza, kuvan u pari zajedno sa morskom travom, jastozima i dagnjama, rajska stvar. Dodao je "A zar sve ove dame veceras ne lice na andele?". Uživao je u kukuruzu i ženama kao idejama. Kukuruz nije mogao da jede zato što mu je gornja veštacka vilica bila klimava. Njegove duže veze sa ženama bile su katastrofalne. U jedinoj ljubavnoj prici u kojoj se ikada okušao, "Poljubi me opet", napisao je: "Ne postoji nikakav nacin da lepa žena u bilo kojem znacajnijem, dužem periodu ostane dostojna svog izgleda." Pouka na kraju te price glasi:"Muškarci su kreteni. Žene su psihopate."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Author: Lars Fr. H. Svendsen
28. "Keep my soul safe. Phantom Lagoon is my home; my safe harbor. I no longer belong to a family; I am a loner. I feel no pain here, because it does not exist; nor will I let it exist. My soul is concealed in this stone; it is my life. I must let go, forget, and never look back. The blame shall be none but my own, for I was born of only half, to be reunited later in life. I am an Essence."
Author: Mandi Lynn
29. "Show me you care about our common tongue. Bring to your [writing] passion, deeply informed by knowledge of your subject. Stay me, not with apples and flagons, but with wit and grace, humor and intense caring about your discipline. Don't slack, don't give it a lick and a promise, don't make it evident that you posted what was 'good enough for government work,' don't try and fake it. Give it your best, your all, not for pence, but for the love of the craft. Do these things, as these writers and scores I have not named do, bring to your work your self, your heart, your voice, motherly or youthful, lawyerly or priestly, conservative or liberal, it matters not. Do this and I and hundreds of others will return again and again to your work, not merely because we may have a burning need for a new printer or an abiding interest in college newspapers or what have you, but because we wish to spend time with your mind and voice."
Author: Markham Shaw Pyle
30. "Mahmutova žena je blagoslov božji, ali ne znam da li bih bio zadovoljan da je Tijana kao ona. Možda bi mi smetalo kad bi bila tako jednostavna. Možda je Tijanina osjetljivost znak i bolest punije misli i življeg osjecanja. Bol i misao oduzimaju nam bezbrižan smijeh."
Author: Meša Selimović
31. "Ne želim da posjedujem, ne želim da upravljam. Želim samo neko blago lice, malo povjerenja, koju utješnu rijec, toplu ruku, ispruženu da me prihvati kad posrnem. Da ne dozvoli da padnem."
Author: Meša Selimović

35. "Sarajevski Marlboro - cigareta koju su strucnjaci Philip Morrisa prilagodili ukusu bosanskih pušaca, nakon što su, kažu, kao i u drugim slucajevima, proucili karakteristike lokalne kuhinje. To je razlog što se Marlboro razlikuje od zemlje do zemlje i od proizvodaca do proizvodaca, i što se pušaca zna neugodno dojmiti strani Marlboro. Suradnici Philip Morrisa bili su iznimno zadovoljni svojim sarajevskim proizvodom, i smatrali su da je njegov duhan, koji raste u okolici Gradacca i Orašja, jedan od boljih blend duhana uopce."

36. "A szimbolikus gondolkodás nem csak a gyermekek, a költok vagy az elmebetegek kizárólagos felségterülete: az ember legalapvetobb sajátja, korábbi, mint a nyelv és a következteto gondolkodás. A szimbólum a valóság legmélyebb rétegeit tárja fel, amelyek a megismerés bármely más eszközének ellenállnak. A képek, a szimbólumok, a mítoszok a pszichének nem holmi fölösleges teremtményei; szükségletet elégítenek ki és funkciót töltenek be: a létezés legtitkosabb módozatait fedik fel."
Author: Mircea Eliade

Author: Neil Gaiman

Author: R.E. Elson
42. "Los animales aceptan y los humanos esperan. Nunca oirás a un conejo decir: espero que el sol salga esta mañana para poder ir al lago a jugar. Si el sol sale o no sale, no estropeara el día al conejo. Es feliz siendo un conejo. El caballero pensó en esto. No recordaba a ninguna persona que fuera feliz simplemente por ser una persona"."
Author: Robert Fisher
43. "[...] podía saborear con deleite esa voluptuosidad que es todo el lujo del amor y que consiste en poder dirigir descuidadamente la atención y la vista a otra parte, a la vez que se siente la apasionada proximidad del ser único, gracias al cual cada minuto es un trozo de paraíso, pero al cual la perversidad te ordena ignorar, sin dejar de mantenerlo atado como un perro; y ante el cual, sin embargo, estarías dispuesto a arrastrarte con la cobardía y los halagos de un verdadero perro, en cuanto estuvieras en peligro de perder a ese ser amado que hasta aquel punto fingías tratar con el inatento dandismo característico del sentimentalismo morboso."
Author: Salvador Dalí
44. "Mi ero ripromesso che prima dei quarant'anni avrei vissuto da eremita nei boschi. Sono andato a stare per sei mesi in una capanna siberiana, sulla sponda del lago Bajkal (...). D'inverno temperature di meno trenta gradi, d'estate gli orsi in riva al lago. Insomma, un paradiso. Mi sono portato libri, sigari e vodka. Il resto - spazio, silenzo e solitudine - c'era già."
Author: Sylvain Tesson

They were further astonished at its size, since it was rather larger than their village. But their surprise was tiny compared to the huge, stricken expression on the face of the dead monster, which appeared to be have been trampled to death."
Author: Terry Pratchett
47. "In The Gulag Archipelago, for example, Alexander Solzhenitsyn remarks that Shakespeare's evildoers, Macbeth notably among them, stop short at a mere dozen corpses because they have no ideology."
Author: Theodore Dalrymple
48. "Having contact sheets for all sorts of episodes in your life seemed to me intriguing and desirable. So much of my own history is beclouded by time, but a few sharp rays, in the form of pictures, falling upon a given day would resuscitate whole contexts. And from this archipelago of moments, scenes, episodes, you could see the larger tectonic movements of your life forming and unforming. You would be reminded of who you are. Or at least of who you were."
Author: Thomas Beller
49. "[…] soha nem szabad elfelejtenünk, hogy az ember ereje, méltósága és öröme abban rejlik, hogy dacolva megveti azokat az árnyakat és csillagokat, amelyek elrejtik elolünk titkainkat."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "However much they may smile at her, the old inhabitants would miss Tillie. Her stories give them something to talk about and to conjecture about, cut off as they are from the restless currents of the world. The many naked little sandbars which lie between Venice and the mainland, in the seemingly stagnant water of the lagoons, are made habitable and wholesome only because, every night, a foot and a half of tide creeps in from the sea and winds its fresh brine up through all that network of shining waterways. So, into all the little settlements of quiet people, tidings of what their boys and girls are doing in the world bring real refreshment; bring to the old, memories, and to the young, dreams."
Author: Willa Cather
