This was a place conceived in a burst of emotion by a melancholy boy."
Author: Dave Eggers

10. "Good Timber by Douglas MallochThe tree that never had to fightFor sun and sky and air and light,But stood out in the open plainAnd always got its share of rain,Never became a forest kingBut lived and died a scrubby thing.The man who never had to toilTo gain and farm his patch of soil,Who never had to win his shareOf sun and sky and light and air,Never became a manly manBut lived and died as he began.Good timber does not grow with ease:The stronger wind, the stronger trees;The further sky, the greater length;The more the storm, the more the strength.By sun and cold, by rain and snow,In trees and men good timbers grow.Where thickest lies the forest growth,We find the patriarchs of both.And they hold counsel with the starsWhose broken branches show the scarsOf many winds and much of strife.This is the common law of life."
Author: Douglas Malloch
11. "Quand il m'arrive de sentir que mon temps est peu de chose, je pense à celui qui s'écoule simultanément dans bien des endroits du monde et qui passe près du mien : ce sont des arbres qui chassent des pollens, des femmes qui attendent une rupture des eaux, un garçon qui étudie un vers de Dante, mille cloches de récréation qui sonnent dans toutes les écoles du monde, du vin qui fermente au soutirage, toutes choses qui arrivent au même moment et qui, alliant leur temps au mien, lui donnent de l'ampleur. (p. 106)"
Author: Erri De Luca
12. "A theist can't empirically prove that God exists but he believes in God because no one can allegedly disprove God's existence. By his logic, you must believe in anything you can't disprove.

Author: G.M. Jackson
13. "Or awa' upon Islay, in January, the wind was honed to a cutting edge across the queer flatness of Loch Gorm and the strand and fields 'round. The roe deer had taken shelter in good time and the brown trout had sought deeper waters. An auld ram alone huddled against the wind, that had swept clear the skies even of eagle, windcuffer, and goose. The scent of saltwater rode the wind over the freshwater loch, and the dry field-grasses rattled, and there was the memory of peat upon the air: a whisky wind in Islay. The River Leòig was forced back upon itself as the wind whipped the loch to whitecaps; only the cairn and the Standing Stones stood unyielding in the blast as of old."
Author: G.M.W. Wemyss
14. "Tu as tout à apprendre, tout ce qui ne s'apprend pas: la solitude, l'indifférence, la patience, le silence. Tu dois te déshabituer de tout: d'aller à la rencontre de ceux que si longtemps tu as côtoyés, de prendre tes repas, tes cafés à la place que chaque jour d'autres ont retenue pour toi, ont parfois défendue pour toi, de traîner dans la complicité fade des amitiés qui n'en finissent pas de se survivre, dans la rancoeur opportuniste et lâche des liaisons qui s'effilochent."
Author: Georges Perec

Mais lorsque le monde des hommes mecontraint à observer ses lois, lorsque mon désir briseson front contre le monde des interdits, lorsque mesmains et mes jambes se trouvent emprisonnées dansles fers implacables des préjugés et des cultures,alors je frissonne, je gémis et je pleure. Espace, jet'ai perdu et je rentre en moi-même. Je m'enferme aufaite de mon clocher où, la tête dans les nuages, jefabrique l'art, la science et la folie."
Author: Henri Laborit
17. "In dieser Traumwelt lebte er mehr als in der wirklichen Welt: Schulsaal, Klosterhof,… war nur Oberfläche, nur eine dünne Haut über der traumgefüllten, ünerwirklichen Bilderwelt. Ein nichts war genug, um in diese dünne Haut ein Loch zu stossen, und hinter der friedlichen dürren Wirklichkeit die tosenden Abgründe, Ströme und Milchstrassen jener Seelenbilderwelt zu entfachen."

27. "Berlinerinnen also continue to reinvent Berlin fashion. Women like Claudia Skoda, c.neeon (Clara Kraetsch and Doreen Schultz), Stadtkluft (Claudine Brignot of urbanspeed and Sandra Siewert of s.wert) and Natascha Loch carry on the tradition of Berliner Chic and carry its meanings into today's fashion. Berlinerinnen will always be ready to wear: the women who live in the city, are photographed in its streets, wear local brands and give Berlin fashion its reputation as exigeant and schraeg. Without all of these women, there would be no Berliner Chic, and so it is to them that this project is dedicated."

Author: Kinley MacGregor
37. "It is a bad indication when, in any period, men will so exalt their confessions that they force the Scriptures to a secondary importance, illustrated in one era, when as Tulloch remarks: 'Scripture as a witness, disappeared behind the Augsburg Confession" ...No decrees of councils; no ordinances of synods; no "standard" of doctrines; no creed or confession, is to be urged as authority in forming the opinions of men. They may be valuable for some purposes, but not for this; they may be referred to as interesting parts of history, but not to form the faith of Christians; they may be used in the church to express its belief, not to form it."

46. "His concept of allochrony - initially introduced shyly as 'untimeliness', then later radicalized to an exit from modernity - is based on the idea, as suggestive as it is fantastic, that antiquity has no need of repetitions enacted in subsequent periods, because it 'essentially' returns constantly on its own strength. In other words, antiquity - or the ancient - is not an overcome phase of cultural development that is only represented in the collective memory and can be summoned by the wilfulness of education. It is rather a kind of constant present - a depth time, a nature time, a time of being - that continues underneath the theatre of memory and innovation that occupies cultural time."
Author: Peter Sloterdijk
47. "Though if love was an animal, Garret knew, it would probably be the Loch Ness Monster. If it didn't exist, that didn't matter. People made models of it, put it in the water, and took photos.
