52. "...while hiding in plain sight in Belgrade, undercover as a New Age mountebank, Karadžic frequented a bar called Mad House - Luda kuca. Mad House offered weekly gusle-accompanied performances of Serbian epic poetry; wartime pictures of him and General Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serbs' military leader (now on trial in The Hague), proudly hung on the walls. A local newspaper claimed that, on at least one occasion, Karadžic performed an epic poem in which he himself featured as the main hero, undertaking feats of extermination. Consider the horrible postmodernism of the situation: an undercover war criminal narrating his own crimes in decasyllabic verse, erasing his personality so that he could assert it more forcefully and heroically."

"En dépit de toutes les profondes différences de leurs natures, tous deux avaient beaucoup appris l'un de l'autre; entre eux, à côté de la langue de la raison, il s'était peu à peu formé un parler de l'âme, un langage de signes, de même que, entre deux agglomérations, il y a bien une route sur laquelle circulent les voitures et les cavaliers, mais à côté se tracent beaucoup de petites sentes, de chemins de traverse, de sentiers détournés; chemins pour les enfants, sentiers pour les amoureux, sentes à peine visibles pour les chiens et les chats.

88. "We'll choose knowledge no matter what, we'll maim ourselves in the process, we'll stick our hands into the flames for it if necessary. Curiosity is not our only motive; love or grief or despair or hatred is what drives us on. We'll spy relentlessly on the dead; we'll open their letters, we'll read their journals, we'll go through their trash, hoping for a hint, a final word, an explanation, from those who have deserted us--who've left us holding the bag, which is often a good deal emptier than we'd supposed."

Preferem ser conduzidas pela vida, encostando-se às circunstâncias, aproveitando o melhor que a sorte trouxer, e depois logo se vê. Mas que o faz geralmente acaba por cair. Podemos escolher passar pela vida ou deixar que a vida passe por nós, podemos ser proactivos ou reactivos, podemos arriscar ou adiar, mas tudo isso tem muito mais a ver com a educação e com o carácter de cada um, portanto talvez nem sequer seja uma questão de opção."
Author: Margarida Rebelo Pinto

I can't seem to find a way to avoid this... however, I hope this gift will make up for my unforgivable behavior. I saw this and though of you, and St. George. You have slain the dragon.Until we meet again, I am your Lucien."
Author: Meg Cabot
93. "The church is never more in danger than when it sees itself simply as the solution-bearer and forgets that every day it too must say, "Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner," and allow that confession to work its way into genuine humility even as it stands boldly before the world and its crazy empires. In particular, it is a problem if and when a "Christian" empire seeks to impose its will dualistically on the world by labeling other parts of the world "evil" while seeing itself as the avenging army of God. That is more or less exactly what Jesus found in the Israel of his day. The cross was and remains a call to a different vocation, a new way of dealing with evil and ultimately a new vision of God."
Author: N. T. Wright

Desisto definitivamente de me iludir com a minha força de adulto sobre o peso de uma amargura infantil. Exactamente porque toda a vida que tive sempre se me representa investida da importância que em cada momento teve. Como se eu jamais tivesse envelhecido. Exactamente porque só é fútil e ingénua a infância dos outros - quando se não é já criança."
Author: Vergílio Ferreira
