2. "O sistema de produção privada manipula e intoxica o consumidor. Por requintados mecanismos de alienação publicitários, as aspirações e normas de comportamento das populações são controladas e integradas no sistema. Cria artificialmente, necessidades, modas, marcas, legendas, códigos sociais. O sistema de objectos é organizado como uma linguagem cujas leis nos são impostas pelos mestres do jogo económico, redundando tudo num grande desperdício colectivo, em prejuízo da satisfação de, por vezes, bem evidentes necessidades sociais."
Author: Amílcar Amorim

Eine Rettungsleine, an die man sich bei jedem Sturm klammern konnte."
Author: Bernhard Hennen

8. "It is significant comment on the victory of science over magic that were someone to say ‘if I put this pill in your beer it will explode,' we might believe them; but were they to cry ‘if I pronounce this spell over your beer it will go flat,' we should remain incredulous and Paracelsus, the Alchemists, Aleister Crowley and all the Magi have lived in vain. Yet when I read science I turn magical; when I study magic, scientific."
Author: Cyril Connolly

10. "Es gibt sicher schönere Gegenden zum Reiten, doch nirgendwo wird man von so vielen unschuldigen Familien mit unschuldigen Kindern und Hunden an der Leine bestaunt, die sagen: Jö ein Pferterl, auf dem auch sie gern reiten möchten, wofür sie eine Ohrfeige bekommen, wenn sie zu lautstark insistieren. Das können wir uns nicht leisten. Zum Ersatz wird dann der Bub oder das Mädel auf das schaukelnde Plastikpferd vom Ringelspiel gepflanzt, wo sie gellend weiterplärren. Daraus könnte das Kind etwas lernen, nämlich dass es für die meisten Dinge billige Kopien gibt, die ihm vorbehalten bleiben."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
11. "My dream, even now, is to walk for weeks with some friend that I love, leisurely wandering from place to place, with no route arranged and no object in view, with liberty to go on all day or to linger all day, as we choose; but the question of luggage, unknown to the simple pilgrim, is one of the rocks on which my plans have been shipwrecked, and the other is the certain censure of relatives, who, not fond of walking themselves, and having no taste for noonday naps under hedges, would be sure to paralyse my plans before they had grown to maturity by the honest horror of their cry, "How very unpleasant if you were to meet any one you know!" The relative of five hundred years back would have said "How Holy!"
Author: Elizabeth Von Arnim

Author: Filipe Russo
14. "Smaak heeft de pad die naar de weegbree kruipt wanneer hij door een spin gebeten is. Smaak leidt het varken naar de truffel, de misselijke hond naar het gras, de bizon over duizenden mijlen naar de zoutsteen. Smaak heeft de zwaluw die de blindheid van haar jongen wil genezen en vanzelf de weg vindt naar het sap van de stinkende gouwe."
Author: Frans Kellendonk

19. "Der Bürger nun schätzt nichts höher als das Ich (ein nur rudimentär entwickeltes Ich allerdings). Auf Kosten der Intensität also erreicht er Erhaltung und Sicherheit, statt Gottbesessenheit erntet er Gewissensruhe, statt Lust Behagen, statt Freiheit Bequemlichkeit, statt tödlicher Glut eine angenehme Temperatur. Der Bürger ist deshalb seinem Wesen nach ein Geschöpf von schwachem Lebensantrieb, ängstlich, jede Preisgabe seiner selbst fürchtend, leicht zu regieren. Er hat darum an Stelle der Macht die Majorität gesetzt, an Stelle der Gewalt das Gesetz, an Stelle der Verantwortung das Abstimmungsverfahren."
Author: Hermann Hesse
20. "Der sympathische, aber sentimentale Mann, der das Lied vom seligen Kinde singt, möchte ebenfalls zur Natur, zur Unschuld, zu den Anfängen zurück und hat ganz vergessen, dass die Kinder keineswegs selig sind, dass sie vieler Konflikte, dass sie vieler Zwiespaeltigkeiten, dass sie aller Leiden fähig sind."
Author: Hermann Hesse

Author: Imants Ziedonis
22. "A legjobb abban a múzeumban mégis az, hogy minden mindig ott marad a helyén, ahol van. Semmi nem mozdul. Százezerszer is odamehetsz, és az eszkimó mindig éppen akkor fogja ki a két halat, a madarak még mindig délre repülnek, a szarvasok isznak a tócsából, a szép kis agancsukkal és a sovány lábukkal, és az indián no, meztelen mellével, még mindig ugyanazt a takarót szövi. Semmi nem változik; ami változik: az ember saját maga. Nem az, hogy idosebb lesz, vagy ilyesmi. Nem éppen azért. Csak éppen megvál­tozik. Mondjuk, most kabátban megy. Vagy az, aki legutóbb a párja volt, skarlátot kapott, és most más a párja. Vagy a Miss Aigletinger helyettese viszi az osztályt. Vagy az ember hallotta, hogy a szülei reggel állati nagy parádét rendeztek a fürdoszobában. Vagy az ember csak elment az utcán egy pocsolya mellett, amin szivárványszínu benzinfoltok úsznak. Úgy értem, az ember kicsit mindig más, nem tudom ezt pontosan megmagyarázni. És még ha tudnám is, nem biztos, hogy akarnám."
Author: J.D. Salinger
23. "Ashleigh's a manipulative liar," Jenny said. "She makes Dick Cheney look like Mr. Rogers." "That is an ugly thing to say about Dick Cheney!" Dr. Goodling snapped. "And my daughter, as well."
Author: J.L. Bryan
24. "Az ember ilyennek vagy olyannak ítél valakit, azután pont az ellentétét látja meg benne. Eleinte szeret, majd a végén meggyulöl valakit; vagy kezdetben közömbös iránta, késobb pedig már imádja. Sosem lehetünk biztosak benne, ki vagy mi lesz létfontosságú a számunkra, sem abban, hogy kinek vagy minek tulajdonítunk majd jelentoséget. Meggyozodéseink múlandóak és ingatagok, még azok is, amelyeket a legszilárdabbaknak vélünk. Akár az érzelmeink. Nem szabadna bíznunk magunkban."
Author: Javier Marías
25. "E se as histórias para crianças passassem a ser de leitura obrigatória para os adultos? Seriam eles capazes de aprender realmente o que há tanto tempo têm andado a ensinar?"

27. "Hans husholderske, fru Irgens født Geelmuyden, grep da leiligheten til å koke og steke til gjæstebud, kalvekjøt og fugl i himmelske saucer blev sat frem, kaker og søte syltetøier til doktoren, herligheter i bakkelser, i geléer. Var frøken Mariane kommet hjem fra en av sine turer til Kristiania eller utlandet kunde hun slutte sig til og ta sit glas med."
Author: Knut Hamsun
28. "Tell me the best part of all your lives."She wanted to say When I found you, every time. But it wasn't as simple as that. It was hard even to think of them discretely. Her past lives began to swirl together and hiccup like the panels of a kaleidoscope. There was that beautiful moment in Tahiti when Lulu had tattooed Daniel's chest. And the way they'd abandoned a battle in ancient China because their love was more important than fighting any war. She could have listed a dozen sexy stolen moments, a dozen gorgeous, bittersweet kisses. Luce knew those weren't the best parts.The best part was now. That was what she would take with her from her journeys through the ages: He was worth everything to her and she was worth everything to him. The only way to experience that deep level of their love was to enter each new moment together, as if time were made of clouds. And if it came down to it during these next nine days, Luce knew that she and Daniel would risk everything for their love."
Author: Lauren Kate

Author: Lauren Weisberger
30. "For one crazy moment he had the notion of a vanished tribe of librarians, lost in the deep underground caverns of the Bodleian, a wild and savage tribe that fed on unwary travellers."

31. "A close friend of mine, Annie Leibovitz, who I've known for forty years, photographs celebrities every single day of the week but they all seem to look the same even though she's one of the most creative photographers alive. They all just look the same. Brad Pitt is a great actor but all the pictures of Brad Pitt look the same."
Author: Lawrence Schiller

33. "Oh, Jesus," he said, wheezing with the effort it took to controlhimself. He wiped his eyes with the back of his hand. "You littleinnocent. I'm fluent in French, but it isn't my first language." Itwas plain by the mortified expression in those green eyes that shedidn't understand, so he explained. "Baby , if I can still thinkclearly enough to speak French, then I'm not totally involved inwhat I'm doing. It may sound pretty , but it doesn't meanany thing. Men are different from women; the more excited we are,the more like cavemen we sound. I could barely speak English withyou, much less French. As I remember, my vocabularydeteriorated to a few short, explicit words, ‘fuck' being the mostprominent."To his amazement, she blushed, and he smiled at this furtherevidence of her charming prudery. "Go to sleep," he said gently."Lindsey didn't even rate a replay."
Author: Linda Howard

36. "Iemand zou de hoop kunnen koesteren dat hij door zijn verwachtingen te reduceren werkelijker zou kunnen worden, dat hij zichzelf zou kunnen beperken tot een harde, betrouwbare kern en daarmee immuun zou worden voor de pijn van de teleurstelling. Maar hoe zou het zijn om een leven te leiden dat zich verre houdt van grootse, onbescheiden verwachtingen, een leven waarin alleen nog banale verwachtingen bestaan, zoals de verwachting dat de bus komt?"
Author: Pascal Mercier

40. "Der PantherIm Jardin des Plantes, ParisSein Blick ist vom Vorübergehn der Stäbeso müd geworden, dass er nichts mehr hält.Ihm ist, als ob es tausend Stäbe gäbeund hinter tausend Stäben keine Welt.Der weiche Gang geschmeidig starker Schritte,der sich im allerkleinsten Kreise dreht,ist wie ein Tanz von Kraft um eine Mitte,in der betäubt ein großer Wille steht.Nur manchmal schiebt der Vorhang der Pupillesich lautlos auf -. Dann geht ein Bild hinein,geht durch der Glieder angespannte Stille -und hört im Herzen auf zu sein.6.11.1902, Paris"
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
41. "What is the scholar, what is the man for, but for hospitality to every new thought of his time? Have you leisure, power, property, friends? you shall be the asylum and patron of every new thought, every unproven opinion, every untried project, which proceeds out of good will and honest seeking. All the newspapers, all the tongues of to-day will of course at first defame what is noble; but you who hold not of to-day, not of the times, but of the Everlasting, are to stand for it: and the highest compliment, man ever receives from heaven, is the sending to him its disguised and discredited angels."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
42. "Cooking involves a deadline and hungry people and ingredients that expire in a week. It's stressful. Cooking happens on the stove and on the clock. Baking happens with ingredients that last for months and come to life inside a warm oven. Baking is slow and leisurely."

"It's the same thing.""It is not the same thing," Blue said. "When it's accompanied by seventies porn music, it's an X-rated strip show." Blue yanked off his shirt. "Freddie, you're kind of slow on the uptake. Eine kleine porn music, please."Freddie scrunched his forehead in distaste. "I don't want to plug my guitar in just so I can play some bow-chicka-wow-wow accompaniment to your strip show.Mira laughed. "Bow-chicka-what was that, Freddie?"
Author: Sarah Cross
44. "I sort of leave the character at the end of the day. I don't carry anything around with me - no excess baggage or unnecessary thoughts. I think it's too exhausting to do that. To put things into perspective - your work is your work, and your leisure time is something else."

48. "— Dizem que é um sociopata, porque não encontraram mais nenhum termo que pudessem aplicar a ele. Tem algumas das características que atribuem a um sociopata. Não tem qualquer sentimento de remorso ou de culpa. E apresentou o primeiro e o pior dos indicadores: sadismo para com os animais quando era criança.— Mas não apresenta mais nenhuma das outras características — continuou Graham. — Não era um desenraizado e não apresentava nenhum histórico de problemas com a lei. Não era mesquinho e explorador nas pequenas coisas, como são a maioria dos sociopatas. Não é insensível. Não sabem como é que devem classificá-lo. Os seus encefalogramas mostram alguns padrões estranhos, mas não conseguiram tirar conclusões a esse respeito."
Author: Thomas Harris
49. "In Tar Baby, the classic concept of the individual with a solid, coherent identity is eschewed for a model of identity which sees the individual as a kaleidoscope of heterogeneous impulses and desires, constructed from multiple forms of interaction with the world as a play of difference that cannot be completely comprehended."
Author: Toni Morrison
50. "Se si alzavano gli occhi e li si guardava direttamente, ciò che lei definiva l' ‘essere innamorati' li sommergeva. Essi divenivano parte di quell'universo irreale ma penetrante ed eccitante che è il mondo visto attraverso gli occhi dell'amore. Il cielo li compenetrava; gli uccelli cantavano in loro. E, cosa ancor più emozionante, ella sentiva anche […] che la vita, prima spezzettata in piccoli episodi distinti che si vivevano uno per volta, ora si increspava e si distendeva come un'onda che ti solleva e ti fa ricadere, là, con un tonfo sulla spiaggia."
Author: Virginia Woolf
