1. "Mais le narrateur est plutôt tente de croire qu'en donnant trop d'importance aux belles actions, on rend finalement un hommage indirect et puissant au mal. Car on laisse supposer alors que ces belles actions n'ont tant de prix que parce qu'elles sont rares et que la méchanceté et l'indifférence sont des moteurs bien plus fréquents dans les actions des hommes. C'est la une idée que le narrateur ne partage pas. Le mal qui est dans le monde vient presque toujours de l'ignorance, et la bonne volonté peut faire autant de dégâts que la méchanceté, si elle n'est pas éclairée. Les hommes sont plutôt bons que mauvais, et en vérité ce n'est pas la question. Mais ils ignorent plus ou moins, et c'est ce qu'on appelle vertu ou vice, le vice le plus désespérant étant celui de l'ignorance qui croit tout savoir et qui autorise alors a tuer. L'ame du meurtrier est aveugle et il n'y a pas de vraie bonté ni de belle amour sans toute la clairvoyance possible."
Author: Albert Camus

19. "In those ancient rooms near the center of Belaire all our wisdom originates, born in the gossip's mind as she sits to watch the Filing System or think on the saints. Things come together, and the saint or the System reveals a new thing not thought before to be there, but which once born spirals out like Path along the cords, being changed by them as it goes. As I got older, the stories of the saints which Painted Red told absorbed me more and more; when one day I stayed after everyone else had gone, hoping to hear more, Painted Red said to me: 'Remember, Rush, there's no one who would not rather be happy than be a saint.' I nodded, but I didn't know what she meant. It seemed to me that anyone who was a saint would have to be happy. I wanted to be a saint, though I told no one, and the thought gave me nothing but joy."

34. "And health in art - what is that? It has nothing to do with a sane criticism of life. There is more health in Baudelaire than there is in [Kingsley]. Health is the artist's recognition of the limitations of the form in which he works. It is the honour and the homage which he gives to the material he uses - whether it be language with its glories, or marble or pigment with their glories - knowing that the true brotherhood of the arts consists not in their borrowing one another's method, but in their producing, each of them by its own individual means, each of them by keeping its objective limits, the same unique artistic delight. The delight is like that given to us by music - for music is the art in which form and matter are always one, the art whose subject cannot be separated from the method of its expression, the art which most completely realises the artistic ideal, and is the condition to which all the other arts are constantly aspiring."
Author: Oscar Wilde

Dad—" I didn't want this, but I didn't want to let it go. I couldn't. I started to walk back to thehouse, to Claire, to the baby whose name I hadn't decided yet, to a future without vampires where I was respected and important and my dad loved me and …And I knew I couldn't have that.Because I'm Shane Collins, and I don't get those things.Because that isn't how my world is.WAKE UP!I did."

This girl won't stop until she sees you all pay."Claire had no idea whom he was talking about—she didn't feel like that Claire at all, until she imagined Shane and Eve lying dead on the ground.Then she understood. "I'd hunt you down," she said quietly. "I'd use every resource I have to do it.And you know I'd win."Morley seemed impressed. "She is small, but I see your point, boy. Besides, she has the ear of Amelie, Oliver, and Myrnin; not a combination I would care to test."

"I really do."Shane and Michael watched them with identical expressions of blank bemusement, and finally Shane said, "So basically, it's what I said. Ditto."

Superstition: C'est toute religion ou toute pratique religieuse auxquelles on n'est point accoutumé. Tout culte qui ne s'adresse point au vrai dieu est faux et superstitieux ; le vrai dieu est celui de nos prêtres, le vrai culte est celui qui leur convient le mieux, et auquel ils nous ont de bonne heure accoutumés ; tout autre culte est évidemment superstitieux, faux et même ridicule."
