10. "Since early childhood, their emotions have been conditioned by the tribal premise that one must "belong," one must be "in," one must swim with the "mainstream," one must follow the lead of "those who know." A man's frustrated mind adds another emotion to the tribal conditioning: a blindly bitter resentment of his own intellectual subservience. Modern men are gregarious and antisocial at the same time. They have no inkling of what constitutes a rational human association."

11. "Those who are close to us, when they die, divide our world. There is the world of the living, which we finally, in one way or another, succumb to, and then there is the domain of the dead that, like an imaginary friend (or foe) or a secret concubine, constantly beckons, reminding us of our loss. What is memory but a ghost that lurks at the corners of the mind, interrupting our normal course of life, disrupting our sleep in order to remind us of some acute pain or pleasure, something silenced or ignored? We miss not only their presence, or how they felt about us, but ultimately how they allowed us to feel about ourselves or them. (prologue)"
Author: Azar Nafisi

Germaine Greer, Elizabeth Taylor, E. Nesbit, Courtney Love, Jilly Cooper és Lady Gaga valamiféle mesébe illo ötvözete. Hogy valamiképpen elsajátítsam a noi lét misztikus muvészetét, és végül varázsereju eszményképe legyek mindazoknak a dolgoknak, amelyek már kezdettol fogva összezavartak és lesújtottak, ott, akkor, 13 évesen, wolverhamptoni ágyamban. Hercegno. Istenno. Múzsa. De ahogy teltek az évek, rájöttem, hogy nem akarok más lenni, csak ember, és kész. Csak egy eredményes, becsületes ember, akivel mások udvariasan bánnak. Egy „a Srácok" közül. Csak épp igazán gyönyöru hajjal."
Author: Caitlin Moran

Je ne peux pas tout donner à l'autre avec cette épée de Damoclès au-dessus de la tête. Je ne veux pas bâtir ma vie sur les sentiments parce que les sentiments changent. Ils sont fragiles et incertains. Tu les crois profonds et ils sont soumis à une jupe qui passe, à un sourire enjôleur. Je fais de la musique parce que la musique ne partira jamais de ma vie. J'aime les livres, parce que les livres seront toujours là. Et puis... des gens qui s'aiment pour la vie, moi, je n'en connais pas."
Author: Guillaume Musso

24. "She was inexorably in motion, on her way to a fate that would not include him, and though she missed him still, she was conscious that something had shifted inside her since she'd seen him on the vid. Through some unknown agency, the roar of his loss had diminished to a loud rumble, and the waves had spent much of their fury. The hold he'd left inside her was beginning to knit itself closed, and if she squinted, she could see that one day far in the distance, all that would remain of it would be a ragged seam, sensitive to the touch perhaps, but no longer tender."
Author: Hillary Jordan
25. "How long can we maintain? I wonder. How long before one of us starts raving and jabbering at this boy? What will he think then? This same lonely desert was the last known home of the Manson family. Will he make that grim connection.."
Author: Hunter S. Thompson
26. "Feel the energy, starting with your hands, and if you maintain the sensation of being connected to that energy as you pray, you can be more deeply immersed in your prayer. The reason is that the entire universe is composed of the energy you're feeling with your hands right now. When you maintain that feeling of connection with the universe as you pray for the great hopes and dreams cherished by your soul, you are broadcasting your prayer to the entire universe as your audience. If the whole universe is resonating with your dream and working with you to make your dream come true, wouldn't that lend great strength to you?"
Author: Ilchi Lee

Toutes les autres créatures n'auraient été créées que pour lui procurer de la nourritures, des fourrures, pour être martyrisées, exterminées. Pour ces créatures, tous les humains sont nazis; pour les animaux, c'est un éternel Treblinka."

31. "I had said that Le Guin's worlds were real because her people were so real, and he said yes, but the people were so real because they were the people the worlds would have produced.

I get confused myself sometimes, Dr. Larch knew.‘Grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest,' Mrs. Grogan was saying, ‘and peace at the last.'Amen, thought Wilbur Larch, the saint of St. Cloud's, who was seventy-something, and an ether addict, and who felt that he'd come a long way and still had a long way to go."

Author: Jules Verne
35. "After all, we're currently living in a Bizarro society where teenagers are technology-obsessed, where the biggest sellers in every bookstores are fantasy novels about a boy wizard, and the blockbuster hit movies are all full of hobbits and elves or 1960s spandex superheroes. You don't have to go to a Star Trek convention to find geeks anymore. Today, almost everyone is an obsessive, well-informed aficionado of something. Pick your cult: there are food geeks and fashion geeks and Desperate Housewives geeks and David Mamet geeks and fantasy sports geeks. The list is endless. And since everyone today is some kind of trivia geek or other, there's not even a stigma anymore. Trivia is mainstream. "Nerd" is the new "cool."
Author: Ken Jennings
36. "Silence and twilight fell over the garden. Far away the sea was lapping gently and monotonously on the bar. The wind of evening in the poplars sounded like some sad, weird old rune-some broken dream of old memories. A slender, shapely young aspen rose up before them against the fine maize and emerald and paling rose of the western sky, which brought out every leaf and twig in dark, tremulous, elfin loveliness."
Author: L.M. Montgomery

Author: Norman Schwarzkopf
41. "In preparing the present volume, it has been the aim of the author to do full justice to the ample material at his command, and, where possible, to make the illustrations tell the main story to anatomists. The text of such a memoir may soon lose its interest, and belong to the past, but good figures are of permanent value. [Justifying elaborate illustrations in his monographs.]"
Author: Othniel Charles Marsh
42. "It's because you and them were made of the same pieces. And afterwards, when you put yourself back together, some piece of them remained."
Author: Pleasefindthis
43. "Life is a balance. We tend to forget that as we go blithely from day to day. We eat and drink and sleep and assume that we will always rise up the next day, that meals and rest will always replenish us. Injuries we expect to heal, and pain to lessen as times goes by. Even when we are faced with wounds that heal more slowly, with pain that lessens by day only to return in full force at nightfall, even when sleep does not leave us rested, we still expect that somehow tomorrow all will come back into balance and that we will go on. At some point, the exquisite balance has tipped, and despite all our flailing efforts, we begin the slow fall from the body that maintains itself to the body that struggles, nails clawing, to cling to what it used to be."
Author: Robin Hobb
44. "Oh shame, shame! Oh crying shame! How can we? Why do we allow ourselves? What are we doing? The last little room of dirt is waiting. Without windows. So for God's sake make a move, Henderson, put forth effort. You, too, will die of this pestilence. Death will annihilate you and nothing will remain, and there will be nothing left but junk...While something still is -- now! For the sake of all, get out!"
Author: Saul Bellow
45. "Se întoarse si îl zari pe Alex Corbu. Covorul pufos trebuie sa-i fi amortizat zgomotul pasilor. Era chiar lânga ele, adresându-le ceea ce parea unul dintre cele mai cuceritoare zâmbete ale sale. Costumul negru, simplu dar din stofa de cea mai buna calitate, cadea pe corpul lui ca turnat, fata smeada îi era ciudat de familiara, iar Cristina îsi zise ca, probabil, nu avea un aer prea inteligent cum se holba la el, într-o stare de confuzie moderata."
Author: Stefana Cristina Czeller
46. "All generous minds have a horror of what are commonly called 'Facts'. They are the brute beasts of the intellectual domain."
Author: Thomas Hobbes
47. "Well the themes for me were and remain sex and love and grief and death - the things that make us and undo us, create and destroy, how we breed and disappear and the emotional context that surrounds these events."
Author: Thomas Lynch
48. "Naphta loathed the bourgeois state and its love of security. He found occasion to express this loathing one autumn afternoon when, as they were walking along the main street, it suddenly began to rain and, as if on command, there was an umbrella over every head. That was a symbol of cowardice and vulgar effeminacy, the end product of civilization. An incident like the sinking of the Titanic was atavistic, true, but its effect was most refreshing, it was the handwriting on the wall. Afterward, of course, came the hue and cry for more security in shipping. How pitiful, but such weak-willed humanitarianism squared very nicely with the wolfish cruelty and villainy of slaughter on the economic battlefield known as the bourgeois state. War, war ! He was all for it – the universal lust or war seemed quite honorable in comparison."
Author: Thomas Mann
49. "La irritava però sentirsi dentro quell'orrendo mostro! Sentire i rami che si spezzavano, e gli zoccoli che si piantavano profondi nella foresta folta di foglie dell'anima. Odiava di non essere mai del tutto contenta, o del tutto sicura, perché ogni istante quel mostro poteva ridestarsi, quell'odio, che specialmente dalla sua malattia in poi, la graffiava, le faceva male alla spina dorsale; le dava un dolore fisico, e insieme minacciava e insidiava ogni piacere della bellezza, dell'amicizia, della ricchezza, dell'amore e della casa, come se ci fosse davvero un mostro che l'attaccava alle radici, come se l'intera panoplia della contentezza non fosse altro che egoismo!"
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "...o femeie cinstita poate sa fie siluita o data, dar tocmai din cauza asta virtutea ei sporeste si mai tare."
Author: Voltaire

Today's Quote

I needed them, sure, and we can all argue about the moment when the balance tipped and I needed them so much that I would hurt. But you can't pretend they didn't need me too, each in his or her way. They wouldn't necessarily have admitted it - except Reza - but you can't tell me they didn't love me. The heart knows. The body knows. When I was with Sirena, or Reza, or Skandar, the air moved differently between us; time passed differently; words or gestures meant more than themselves. If you've never had this experience-but who has not been visited by love, laughing?-then you can't understand. And if you have, you don't need me to say another word."
Author: Claire Messud
