1. "You are one of the unfortunate ones whose body decays rapidly in the face of radiation poisoning. You hang your head over the toilet to vomit again and again, and die praying to the porcelain gods."
Author: A.J. Lauer
2. "Our life consists not in the pursuit of material success but in the quest for worthy spiritual growth. Our entire earthly existence is but a transitional stage in the movement toward something higher, and we must not stumble and fall, nor must we linger fruitlessly on one rung of the ladder. Material laws alone do not explain our life or give it direction. The laws of physics and physiology will never reveal the indisputable manner in which the Creator constantly, day in and day out, participates in the life of each of us, unfailingly granting us the energy of existence; when this assistance leaves us, we die. And in the life of our entire planet, the Divine Spirit surely moves with no less force: this we must grasp in our dark and terrible hour."
Author: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
3. "Look, look,' cried the count, seizing the young man's hands - "look, for on my soul it is curious. Here is a man who had resigned himself to his fate, who was going to the scaffold to die - like a coward, it is true, but he was about to die without resistance. Do you know what gave him strength? - do you know what consoled him? It was, that another partook of his punishment - that another partook of his anguish - that another was to die before him. Lead two sheep to the butcher's, two oxen to the slaughterhouse, and make one of them understand that his companion will not die; the sheep will bleat for pleasure, the ox will bellow with joy. But man - man, who God created in his own image - man, upon whom God has laid his first, his sole commandment, to love his neighbour - man, to whom God has given a voice to express his thoughts - what is his first cry when he hears his fellowman is saved? A blasphemy. Honour to man, this masterpiece of nature, this king of the creation!"
Author: Alexandre Dumas

5. "- As wiccanfae não merecem estar entre nós...e Tir Alainn não é o lugar delas. - Nesse caso, sugiro que se vá embora.Lucian fixara-a com o olhar até Selena começar a perder mão sobre si mesma, em vias de se descontrolar. - Eu sou Fae - afirmara - e sou Filha da Casa de Gaian, o que implica que também sou wiccanfae. No entanto, se eu sou wiccanfae,o que julga o Senhor do Fogo que é? - Como?! - O fogo é um dos elementos da Mãe Universal. Não é uma dádiva dos Fae. O único motivo pelo qual o senhor o domina é por ser descendente de pelos menos uma pessoa que pertencia à Casa de Gaian. - Mentira - brandira Lucian - Eu sou Fae. - Wiccanfae! - atirara Selena, no mesmo tom. - Quem tem o seu poder não pode ter sangue puro. Quem julgava o senhor que era?..."

6. "Citas tautas ir laimigakas. Ari tam netruka škeleju, tak ne gluži tik nešpetnu ka mums. Kad krievi okupeja Cehoslovakiju, vai cehiem bija škiras? Bija tikai cehi, kas staveja ka muris, nicinot varmacibu."

Laila selalu jatuh cinta pada lukisan, bukan meja makan."
Author: Ayu Utami
10. "I am frankly sick and tired of the political preachers telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in A, B, C, and D. Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me?"
Author: Barry M. Goldwater

We trust the Swiss for their ability to engineer things, to build with precision."Cal: "We do?"Eliot: "Do I even have to mention Swiss watches? Swiss Army knives? Swiss cheese? If anyone can build a non-threatening, non-lethal snack cake, it's the Swiss. They're neutral, we can trust them not to attack us with trans-fatty acids and sugar. I think you would feel differently if they were German Cake Rolls. North Korean Cake Rolls. I bet you wouldn't eat them."Cal: "I bet I would."

34. "He was wrong in thinking that by saying 'Nnphnn!' Sunny had been complaining about getting undressed in front of her siblings.

35. "For me, madness was definitely not a condition of illness; I did not believe that I was ill. It was rather a country, opposed to Reality, where reigned an implacable light, blinding, leaving no place for shadow; an immense space without boundary, limitless, flat; a mineral, lunar country, cold as the wastes of the North Pole. In this stretching emptiness, all is unchangeable, immobile, congealed, crystallised. Objects are stage trappings, placed here and there, geometric cubes without meaning.People turn weirdly about, they make gestures, movements without sense; they are phantoms whirling on an infinite plain, crushed by the pitiless electric light. And I - I am lost in it, isolated, cold, stripped purposeless under the light."
Author: Marguerite Sechehaye

Author: Michael Hayden
38. "In the case of patentable ideas such as the wheelbarrow, the idea of unpriced spillovers is more plausible. Yet there is no reason to believe that it is of practical importance. Indeed, there is a modern example of the wheelbarrow – that of Travelpro – the inventor of the modern wheeled roll-on suitcase with a retractable handle. Obviously such an idea can not both be useful and be secret – and once you see a wheeled roll-on suitcase it is not difficult to figure out how to make one of your own. Needless to say, Travelpro was quickly imitated – and so quickly you probably have never even heard of Travelpro. Never-the-less – despite their inability to garner an intellectual monopoly over their invention – they found it worthwhile to innovate – and they still do a lucrative business today, claiming "425,000 Flight Crew Members Worldwide Choose Travelpro Luggage."
Author: Michele Boldrin
39. "Comprenez-moi. Le misogyne ne méprise pas les femmes. Le misogyne n'aime pas la féminité. Les hommes se répartissent depuis toujours en deux grandes catégories. Les adorateurs des femmes, autrement dit les poètes, et les misogynes ou, pour mieux dire, les gynophobes. Les adorateurs ou poètes vénèrent les valeurs féminines traditionelles comme le sentiment, le foyer, la maternité, la fécondité, les éclairs sacrés de l'hysterie, et la voix divine de la nature en nous, tandis qu'aux misogynes ou gynophobes ces valeurs inspirent un léger effroi. Chez la femme, l'adorateur vénère la féminité, alors que le misogyne donne toujours la préférence à la femme sur la féminité. N'oubliez pas une chose: une femme ne peut être vraiment heureuse qu'avec un misogyne."
Author: Milan Kundera
40. "If religion cannot restrain evil, it cannot claim effective power for good."

Author: Moshe Sharett
42. "Omul asta, gandeam eu, n-a fost la scoala si creierul lui nu s-a deformat. A fost supus la toateincercarile, I s-a deschis mintea,I s-a largit inima, fara a-si pierde cutezanta primitiva. Toate problemelecomplicate, de nesolutionat pentru noi, el le rezolva printr-o lovitura de sabie, ca Alexandru cel Mare,compatriotul sau. E foarte greu ca el sa alunece, pentru ca se sprijina in intregime, din cap pana inpicioare, de pamant. Salbaticii din Africa adora sarpele pentru ca sta cu tot corpul lipit de pamant si aflain felul acesta toate tainele lumii. Le afla cu burta, cu coada, cu capul. O atinge, se amesteca, secontopeste cu mama. La fel si Zorba. Noi, oamenii instruiti, nu suntem decat niste pasari smintite alevazduhului."
Author: Nikos Kazantzakis
43. "A philosophy may explain difficult things, but has no power to change them. The gospel, the story of Jesus' life, promises change."
Author: Philip Yancey
44. "Bianca di Angelo shivered. "That explains Nico, you remember last summer, those guyswho tried to attack us in the alley in DC?""And that bus driver," Nico said. "The one with the ram's horns. I *told* you that was real."

45. "Politics has slain its thousands, but religion has slain its ten thousands."
Author: Seán O'Casey
46. "If religion is about the sacred as opposed to the profane, the spirit as opposed to matter, the Creator as opposed to the created, Confucianism plainly does not qualify. But perhaps what we are to learn from this tradition is not that Confucianism is not a religion but that not all religious people parse the sacred and the secular the way Christians do."
Author: Stephen R. Prothero
47. "An important book for understanding the history of our economic boom & bust cycles. It's an eye-opening account of how we are repeating the mistakes of the 1760's, 1850's, and 1920's. The author is a brilliant writer and is so good at explaining even the most complex subjects in a compelling & easy to understand way. The next crash will be painful but it's important to understand what is being done to us, and how we can learn from history and take action."
Author: Thom Hartmann
48. "[...] little Belgium once again busy at what she does best, tamely offering her battlefield-ready lowlands to boots, hooves, iron wheels, waiting to be first to go under before a future no one in Europe has the clairvoyance to imagine as anything more than an exercise for clerks."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
49. "How, in so short a time, she had passed from intoxication to disgust we will only seek to explain by supposing that this mysterious composition which we call society, is nothing absolutely good or bad in itself, but has a spirit in it, volatile but potent, which either makes you drunk when you think it, as Orlando thought it, delightful, or gives you a headache when you think it, as Orlando thought it, repulsive. That the faculty of speech has much to do with it either way, we take leave to doubt. Often a dumb hour is the most ravishing of all; brilliant wit can be tedious beyond description. But to the poets we leave it, and so on with our story."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "Thou - why, thou wilt quarrel with a man that hath a hair more or a hair less in his beard than thou hast. Thou wilt quarrel with a man for cracking nuts, having no other reason but because thow hast hazel eyes. What eye but such an eye would spy out such a quarrel? Thy head is as full of quarrels as an egg is full of meat, and yet thy head hath been beaten as addle as an egg for quarreling. Thou hast quarreled with a man for coughing in the street because he hath wakened thy dog that hath lain asleep in the sun. Didst thou not fall out with a tailor for wearing his new doublet before Easter? With another, for tying his new shoes with old ribbon? And yet thou wilt tutor me from quarreling?"
