12. "Why are some countries able, despite their very real and serious problems, to press ahead along the road to reconciliation, recovery, and redevelopment while others cannot? These are critical questions for Africa, and their answers are complex and not always clear. Leadership is crucial, of course. Kagame was a strong leader–decisive, focused, disciplined, and honest–and he remains so today. I believe that sometimes people's characters are molded by their environment. Angola, like Liberia, like Sierra Leone, is resource-rich, a natural blessing that sometimes has the sad effect of diminishing the human drive for self-sufficiency, the ability and determination to maximize that which one has. Kagame had nothing. He grew up in a refugee camp, equipped with only his own strength of will and determination to create a better life for himself and his countrymen."
Author: Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

16. "I grew up in Sierra Leone, in a small village where as a boy my imagination was sparked by the oral tradition of storytelling. At a very young age I learned the importance of telling stories - I saw that stories are the most potent way of seeing anything we encounter in our lives, and how we can deal with living."
Author: Ishmael Beah
17. "I guess what I'd like to say is that people in Sierra Leone are human beings, just like Americans. They want to send their kids to school; they want to live in peace; they want to have their basic rights of life just like everyone else. I think we all owe an obligation to support people who want to do that."
Author: Ishmael Beah
18. "I was one of those children forced into fighting at the age of 13, in my country Sierra Leone, a war that claimed the lives of my mother, father and two brothers. I know too well the emotional, psychological and physical burden that comes with being exposed to violence as a child or at any age for that matter."

That was friendship enough in this world, all that was needed."
Author: Mario Puzo

En este mismo segundo, por primera vez, se siente como si tuviera el mundo en mis manos y voy a extender la mano y agarrarlo. Incluso si es sólo temporal. O si a él sólo parezco gustarle porque su familia lo hace, lo tomo."
Author: Nyrae Dawn
35. "[The USA in the '70s] The country's cinematic output was appropriately bleak, reflecting the moroseness and self-hatred that riddled the national psyche. Anti-heroes such as Bonnie and Clyde, Travis Bickle, Popeye Doyle and the Corleones dominated the box office and the public wallowed in a morass of guilty introspection. There was never a country in more desperate need of a blow job than the United States of America: enter George Lucas."
Author: Simon Pegg
36. "Il diritto naturale non esiste [...]. Non c'è un diritto che quando c'è una legge per proibire di fare una data cosa sotto minaccia di punizione. Prima che ci sia la legge, non c'è di naturale che la forza del leone, o il bisogno dell'essere che ha fame, che ha freddo, il bisogno in una parola... No, le persone che il mondo onora non sono che delle canaglie che hanno avuto la fortuna di non essere colte in flagrante."
Author: Stendhal
37. "La notte in cui provo di nuovo quella sensazione, la fame che mi aveva assalito sulla spiaggia, so che tutto questo sarebbe accaduto comunque. Che quello di cui ho bisogno per sopravvivere non è il fuoco di Gale, acceso di odio e di rabbia. Ho abbastanza fuoco di mio. Quello di cui ho bisogno è il dente di leone che fiorisce a primavera. Il giallo brillante che significa rinascita anziché distruzione. La promessa di una vita che continua, per quanto gravi siano le perdite che abbiamo subito. Di una vita che può essere ancora bella. E solo Peeta è in grado di darmi questo. Così, quando sussurra: — Tu mi ami. Vero o falso? — io gli rispondo — Vero."
Author: Suzanne Collins

Author: Tom Franklin
39. "Prima della rivoluzione, quando un gran personaggio, un maresciallo di Francia, un duca e pari o un principe attraversava una città di quelle regioni, la rappresentanza municipale si recava a fargli un discorso e gli presentava quattro ciotole d'argento in cui erano stati versati quattro vini diversi; sulla prima tazza si leggeva quest'iscrizione: vino di scimma, sulla seconda: vino di leone, sulla terza: vino di montone e sulla quarta: vino di porco. Quelle quattro leggende esprimevano i quattro gradi pei quali discende l'ubriaco: la prima ebbrezza, quella che rallegra; la seconda, quella che eccita; la terza quella che inebetisce e la quarta, finalmente, quella che abbrutisce."
Author: Victor Hugo
40. "Per tutti questi secoli le donne hano avuto la funzione di specchi, dal potere magico e delizioso di riflettere raddoppiata la figura dell'uomo. [...]Perciò Napoleone e Mussolini insistono tanto enfaticamente sull'inferiorità delle donne, perché se esse non fossero inferiori cesserebbero di ingrandire loro. Questo serve in parte a spiegare la necessità che gli uomini spesso sentono delle donne. E serve a spiegare come li fa sentire inquieti la critica femminile; come a lei sia impossibile dir loro che il libro è brutto o il quadro difettoso, o cose del genere, senza provocare assai più dolore e suscitare assai più rabbia di quanta potrebbe suscitarne un uomo con la stessa critica. Perché se la donna comincia a dire la verità, la figura nello specchio rimpicciolisce; l'uomo diventa meno adatto alla vita."
Author: Virginia Woolf
41. "Un poeta somma in sé l'Atlantico e il leone. Se l'uno vi sommerge, l'altro vi addenta. Se sfuggiamo alle zanne, cadiamo in preda ai flutti. Un uomo che ha il potere di distruggere le illusioni è al tempo stesso belva e onda. Le illusioni stanno all'anima come l'atmosfera alla terra. Toglietele quella tenera coltre d'aria, e vedrete la pianta morire, svanire i colori. La terra su cui noi camminiamo non è che brace estinta. E' marga quella che calpestiamo, e ciottoli ingrati ci feriscono il piede. La verità è un fulmine che ci annienta. La vita è un sogno. E' il risveglio che ci uccide. Colui che ci deruba dei nostri sogni ci deruba della nostra vita."
Author: Virginia Woolf
42. "Words can't fix my life.Words can't give me a family.Words can't do jack.You may be a teacher, Ms. Leone, but face it: You don't know squat."
Author: Wendelin Van Draanen
