On a placé ta froide main dans la main du vassal insolent, décoré des pouvoirs du maître ; la royale procuration, sanctionnée par l'officieux chapelain de Son Excellence, a réuni aux yeux du monde deux êtres inconnus l'un à l'autre. Je suis au fait de ces cérémonies. Et toi, ton coeur, ta tête, ta vie, marchandés par entremetteurs, tout a été vendu au plus offrant ; une couronne de reine t'a faite esclave pour jamais ; et cependant ton fiancé, enseveli dans les délices d'une cour, attend nonchalamment que sa nouvelle épouse... ( RAZETTA )"
Author: Alfred De Musset
2953. "Monsters remain human beings. In fact, to reduce them to a subhuman level is to exonerate them of their acts of terrorism and mass murder — just as animals are not deemed morally responsible for killing. Insisting on the humanity of terrorists is, in fact, critical to maintaining their profound responsibility for the evil they commit.And, if they are human, then they must necessarily not be treated in an inhuman fashion. You cannot lower the moral baseline of a terrorist to the subhuman without betraying a fundamental value."
Author: Andrew Sullivan

Author: Benjamin Constant

Moi j'offrirais mon âme, mon coeur et tout mon temps, mais j'ai beau tout donner, tout n'est pas suffisant....S'il suffisait qu'on s'aime, s'il suffisait d'aimer, si l'on changeait les choses un peu, rien qu'en aimant donner. S'il suffisait qu'on s'aime, s'il suffisait d'aimer, je ferais de ce monde un rêve, une éternité."
Author: Celine Dion

"I remember an hypothesis argued upon by the young students, when I was at St. Omer's, and maintained with much learning and pleasantry on both sides, 'Whether supposing that the flavour of a big who obtained his death by whipping (per flagellationem extremem) superadded a pleasure upon the palate of a man more intense than any possible suffering we can conceive in the animal, is man justified in using that method of putting an animal to death?' I forget the decision."
Author: Charles Lamb

2967. "Les avares ne croient pas à une vie à venir. Le présent est tout pour eux. Cette réflexion jette une horrible clarté sur l'époque actuelle, où, plus qu'en aucun autre temps, l'argent domine les lois, la politique et les moeurs. Institutions, livres, hommes et doctrines, tout comspire à miner la croyance d'une vie future sur laquelle l'édifice social est appuyé depuis dix-huit cents ans. Maintenant le cercueil est une transition peu redoutée. L'avenir, qui nous attendait par delà le requiem, a été transposé dans le présent. Arriver per fas et nefas au paradis terrestre du luxe et des jouissances vaniteuses, pétrifier son coeur et se macérer le corps en vue de possessions passagères, comme on souffrait le martyre de la vie en vue de biens éternels est la pensé générale! pensée d'ailleurs écrite partout, jusque dans les lois...."
Author: Honoré De Balzac

"[Pertaining to The Law of Free Will and Karma]: Disputing traditional cause and effect karmic doctrine, Kuan Yin maintains that it is the accumulated beliefs from parallel realities creating "made-up stories" about oneself and, thus, reality. Because of this quantum factor, we have absolute Free Will to attract optimum realities from infinite, simultaneous Evolutionary Potentials. Thus, according to Kuan Yin, where and how skillfully one focuses their intention and attention can determine an outcome."
Author: Hope Bradford
2969. "Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Era—the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run . . . but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant. . . ."
Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Author: Ileana Vulpescu
2971. "E ciudata ?i patetica senza?ia de lumina în lumina pe care ?i-o da gândul ca ai trecut prin mintea unui orb. E mai mult decât un tunel. E ca un vis scurt al mor?ii, din care ochii se de?teapta cu o mirare înduio?ata, regasindu-?i lumina."

When I curl up on my sofa with God and his Word, that feeling that makes me want to bold should be the feeling that keeps me there with him. It's the weight of my sin pushing me down from the high and lofty places where my pride would rather keep me."

2978. "When God is here spoken of as hardening some of the children of men, it is not to be understood that God by any positive efficiency hardens any man's heart. There is no positive act in God, as though he put forth any power to harden the heart. To suppose any such thing would be to make God the immediate author of sin. God is said to harden men in two ways: by withholding the powerful influences of his Spirit, without which their hearts will remain hardened, and grow harder and harder; in this sense he hardens them, as he leaves them to hardness. And again, by ordering those things in his providence which, through the abuse of their corruption, become the occasion of their hardening. Thus God sends his word and ordinances to men which, by their abuse, prove an occasion of their hardening."
Author: Jonathan Edwards
2979. "Today's milestone is human madness. Politics is a part of it, particularly in its lethal outbursts. Politics is not, as it was for Hannah Arendt, the field where human freedom is unfurled. The modern world, the world of world war, the Third World, the underground world of death that acts upon us, do not have the civilized splendor of the Greek city state. The modern political domain is massively, in totalitarian fashion, social, leveling, exhausting. Hence madness is a space of antisocial, apolitical, and paradoxically free individuation"
Author: Julia Kristeva

Author: Lucian Boia

'I don't sleep with men who think I'm a brainless twit."
Author: Nalini Singh

Author: Neil Tennant
2989. "The Romans never allowed a trouble spot to remain simply to avoid going to war over it, because they knew that wars don't just go away, they are only postponed to someone else's advantage. Therefore, they made war with Philip and Antiochus in Greece, in order not to have to fight them in Italy... They never went by that saying which you constantly hear from the wiseacres of our day, that time heals all things. They trusted rather their own character and prudence— knowing perfectly well that time contains the seeds of all things, good as well as bad."
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli

You have nothing to lose but your A on the midterm!"

Her clothes spread wide; And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up: Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes; As one incapable of her own distress, Or like a creature native and induedUnto that element: but long it could not beTill that her garments, heavy with their drink, Pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious layTo muddy death. (Ophelia)"
