152. "A te delecta în trecut poate fi literatura buna. Ca întelepciune însa, nu duce la nimic. Timpul Regasit este Paradisul Pierdut, iar Timpul Pierdut este Paradisul Regasit. Lasa mortii sa-si îngroape mortii. Daca vrei sa traiesti fiecare moment asa cum ti se înfatiseaza, trebuie sa mori în momentul urmator. A muri este o arta si la vârsta noastra s-ar cuveni s-o învatam. Te ajuta mult sa fi vazut pe cineva care a stiut cu adevarat cum sa moara. Helen a stiut sa moara fiindca a stiut sa traiasca — sa traiasca acum si aici, pentru mai marea glorie a divinitatii. Si aceasta atrage în mod necesar dupa sine de asemenea a muri acolo si atunci si mâine si în nenorocitul nostru eu marunt. În decursul trairii, asa cum se cuvine, Helen murise în rate zilnice. Când a sosit judecata finala, practic nu mai ramasese nimic de platit."
Author: Aldous Huxley

158. "Parmi ceux « qui ne lisent pas », les mieux avisés sauront apprendre, comme nous, à parler autour : ils excelleront dans l'art inflationniste du commentaire (je lis dix lignes, je ponds dix pages), la pratique jivaro de la fiche (je parcours 400 pages, je les réduis à cinq), la pêche à la citation judicieuse (dans ces précis de culture congelée disponibles chez tous les marchands de réussite), ils sauront manier le scalpel de l'analyse linéaire et deviendront experts dans le savant cabotage entre les « morceaux choisis », qui mène sûrement au baccalauréat, à la licence, voire à la l'agrégation… mais pas nécessairement à l'amour du livre."
Author: Daniel Pennac

Author: Diego Marani
161. "I think it takes an amazing amount of energy to convince oneself that the Forever Person isn't just around the corner. In the end I believe we never do convince ourselves. I know that I found it increasingly hard to maintain the pose of emotional self-sufficiency lying on my bed and sitting at my desk, watching the gulls cartwheeling in the clouds over the bridges, cradling myself in my own arms, breathing warm chocolate-and-vodka breath on a rose I had found on a street corner, trying to force it to bloom."
Author: Douglas Coupland

Author: Edward James Olmos
163. "Rimasero in silenzio mentre i loro occhi si cibavano gli uni degli altri, senza parole perché quelle tra loro erano inutili. L'alchimia che c'era stata sin dal loro primo incontro era qualcosa di indescrivibile che nessuno dei due aveva mai provato prima. Lui era lo Yang, il lato virile e potente dell'essenza che creavano insieme, e lei era lo Yin, la femminilità, la delicatezza che colmava le mancanze dell'altro. Solo insieme erano completi, lontani erano come un giocattolo rotto."
Author: Eilan Moon
164. "Em prometia no dir mai res, no fer mai res que els altres poguessin emmagatzemar al seu cap per retreure-m'ho el dia que els donés la gana. No volia quedar mai més enterrat, immobilitzat per un munt de paraules, convertit en un retrat que em feien els altres i que jo no podía esborrar."

166. "Nous pensons que la lutte organisée et consciente entreprise par un peuple colonisé pour rétablir la souveraineté de la nation constitue la manifestation la plus pleinement culturelle qui soit. Ce n'est pas uniquement le succès de la lutte qui donne par la suite validité et vigueur à la culture, il n'y a pas de mise en hibernation de la culture pendant le combat. La lutte elle-même, dans son déroulement, dans son processus interne dévelppe les différentes directions de la culture et en esquisse de nouvelles. La lutte de libération ne restitue pas à la culture nationale sa valeur et ses contours anciens. Cette lutte qui vise à la une redistribution fondamentale des rapports entre les hommes ne peut laisser intacts ni les formes ni les contenus culturels de ce peuple. Après la lutte il n'y a pas seulement disparition du colonialisme mais aussi disparition du colonisé."
Author: Frantz Fanon
167. "An abolitionist is, as I have developed that notion, one who (1) maintains that we cannot justify animal use, however "humane" it may be; (2) rejects welfare campaigns that seek more "humane" exploitation, or single-issue campaigns that seek to portray one form of animal exploitation as morally worse than other forms of animal exploitation (e.g., a campaign that seeks to distinguish fur from wool or leather); and (3) regards veganism, or the complete rejection of the consumption or use of any animal products, as a moral baseline. An abolitionist regards creative, nonviolent vegan education as the primary form of activism, because she understands that the paradigm will not shift until we address demand and educate people to stop thinking of animals as things we eat, wear, or use as our resources."
Author: Gary L. Francione

Author: Hannah Kent
170. "Even when I ran my bar I followed the same policy. A lot of customers came to the bar. If one in ten enjoyed the place and said he'd come again, that was enough. If one out of ten was a repeat customer, then the business would survive. To put it another way, it didn't matter if nine out of ten didn't like my bar. This realization lifted a weight off my shoulders. Still, I had to make sure that the one person who did like the place really liked it. In order to make sure he did, I had to make my philosophy and stance clear-cut, and patiently maintain that stance no matter what. This is what I learned through running a business."
Author: Haruki Murakami

172. "As they prepared themselves to go ashore no one doubted in theory that at least a certain percentage of them would remain on the island dead, once they set foot on it. But no one expected to be one of these. Still it was an awesome thought and as the first contingents came struggling up on deck in full gear to form up, all eyes instinctively sought out immediately this island where they were to be put, and left, and which might possibly turn out to be a friend's grave."
Author: James Jones
173. "Knowledge of my atrocious selfishness, settled on me. All those bitter home truths she had flung at me, right from the beginning…and still loved me; was so blind that she still loved me. One day she had said: When you love me (and she had not meant "make love to me") it's as if God forgave me for being the mess I am; and I took it as chicanery, another emotional blackmail, to make me feel essential and so give me a sense of responsibility towards her."
Author: John Fowles
174. "Musuh membiak seperti tikus. Kau injak mereka, kau racun mereka, kau bakar mereka, akan lebih banyak lagi yang muncul! Tidak ada bedanya apakah kau hidup pada masa perang atau damai, makmur atau kelaparan! Musuh selalu menyusun rencana di belakangmu.(Shah Jahan dalam Taj Mahal, Kisah Cinta Abadi)"
Author: John Shors
175. "For the next two hours Denise mainly paid attention to her hand, which she'd laid on the sofa cushion within easy reach of Robin's. The hand wasn't comfortable there, it wanted to be retracted, but she didn't want to give up hard-won territory.When the movie ended they watched TV, and then they were silent for an impossibly long time, five minutes or a year, and still Robin didn't take the warm, five-fingered bait. Denise would have welcomed some pushy male sexuality right around now."
Author: Jonathan Franzen

Author: Kay Redfield Jamison

For another thing, people who laugh so heartily at what they themselves have said, when it is not funny, dispense us accordingly, by taking upon themselves the responsibility for the mirth, from joining in it."
Author: Marcel Proust
180. "La vie est atroce ; nous savons cela. Mais précisément parce que j'attends peu de choses de la condition humaine, les périodes de bonheur, les progrès partiels, les efforts de recommencement, et de continuité me semblent autant de prodiges qui compensent presque l'immense masse des maux, des échecs, de l'incurie et de l'erreur."
Author: Marguerite Yourcenar

Whatever you feel about it, remember it will never last, so make the best out of it."
Author: Nael Gharzeddine
184. "We, the French, the cleverest people on Earth, we, the exquisite, the charming, incomparable people, -listen, I mean it- we have a weakness for thieves. In our novels, in our plays, in our comic operas, whenever a thief appears, he is interesting. The author knows where the way to success lies. He is scarcely concerned with moral rectitude; the main thing is to please the audience."
Author: Paul Féval

Author: Paulo Coelho

Author: Rebecca De Mornay

Tai svajones, kurioms žmonija iššvaisto daugiausia savo laiko."
Author: Sigitas Parulskis
