Such scholars all piously assure us that they're telling us the real truth about what really happened, but if you turn any competent historian over and look at his damp underside, you'll find a storyteller, and you can believe me when I tell you that no storyteller's ever going to tell a story without a few embellishments.

16. "There are two influences ever present in the world. One is constructive and elevating and comes from our Heavenly Father; the other is destructive and debasing and comes from Lucifer. We have our agency and make our own choice in life subject to these unseen powers. There is a division line well defined that separates the Lord's territory from Lucifer's. If we live on the Lord's side of the line Lucifer cannot come there to influence us, but if we cross the line into his territory we are in his power. By keeping the commandments of the Lord we are safe on His side of the line, but if we disobey His teachings we voluntarily cross into the zone of temptation and invite the destruction that is ever present there. Knowing this, how anxious we should always be to live on the Lord's side of the line."
Author: George Albert Smith

20. "The whole concatenation of wild and artificial things, the natural ecosystem as modified by people over the centuries, the build environment layered over layers, the eerie mix of sounds and smells and glimpses neither natural nor crafted- all of it is free for the taking, for the taking in. Take it, take it in, take in more every weekend, every day, and quickly it becomes the theater that intrigues, relaxes, fascinates, seduces, and above all expands any mind focused on it. Outside lies utterly ordinary space open to any casual explorer willing to find the extraordinary. Outside lies unprogrammed awareness that at times becomes directed serendipity. Outside lies magic."

Author: Karen Blixen

Author: Karen Marie Moning
25. "- Minha filha, vens da água e a água fala. Vens do tempo e estarás no tempo e a tua palavra estará no vento e será espalhada pela terra. A tua palavra será o fogo que transforma todas as coisas. A tua palavra estará na água be será espelho da língua. A tua palavra terá olhos e verá, terá ouvidos e ouvirá, terá tacto para mentir com a verdade e dirá verdades que parecerão mentiras. E com a tua palavra poderás regressar à quietude, ao princípio onde nada é, onde nada está, onde tudo o que foi criado regressa ao silêncio, mas a tua palavra despertá-lo-á e terás de nomear os deuses e terás de dar vozes às árvores e farás com que a natureza tenha língua e falará por ti o que é invisível. E a tua língua será palavra de luz e a tua palavra, pincel de flores, palavra de cores que, com a tua voz, pintará novos códices."

Thus were written at a single impulsion the passages on food, love, sleep, and the knowledge of men. I can hardly recall a day spent with more ardor, or more lucid nights."
Author: Marguerite Yourcenar
28. "When Kafka allows a friend to understand that he writes because otherwise he would go mad, he knows that writing is madness already, his madness, a kind of vigilence, unrelated to any wakefulness save sleep's: insomnia. Madness against madness, then. But he believes that he masters the one by abandoning himself to it; the other frightens him, and is his fear; it tears through him, wounds and exalts him. It is as if he had to undergo all the force of an uninterruptable continuity, a tension at the edge of the insupportable which he speaks of with fear and not without a feeling of glory. For glory is the disaster."
Author: Maurice Blanchot
