1. "When we speak from our heart and say the words our soul has only dared to whisper, that's when miracles happen.

From the spoken word to the written word, from the DNA messages encoded in cells to nerve impulses connecting our mind and body, words will influence life. Words spoken from the heart bring more inspiration , motivation and good energy into our world. … marinate your heart in your words so that what you speak from your heart will reflect the love you possess inside."

16. "Every time I create something, whether an idea or a work of art, initially, its supposed completion seems absolutely perfect to me. However the more I think about it, stare it down, the more it marinates in my soul over the hours, days, and weeks, the more flaws I start to find in it; and finally, the more I'm pressed to continue enhancing it. It essentially turns out that whatever thing a flawed and imperfect, human eye once thought was amazing begins to appear quite wretched. This is why, eternally, God cannot be impressed by mere talents or by mortal achievements. To perfect eyes, I imagine that great is not really that great; rather, humility is ultimately a human being's true greatness."

25. "The West Indian is not exactly hostile to change, but he is not much inclined to believe in it. This comes from a piece of wisdom that his climate of eternal summer teaches him. It is that, under all the parade of human effort and noise, today is like yesterday, and tomorrow will be like today; that existence is a wheel of recurring patterns from which no one escapes; that all anybody does in this life is live for a while and then die for good, without finding out much; and that therefore the idea is to take things easy and enjoy the passing time under the sun. The white people charging hopefully around the islands these days in the noon glare, making deals, bulldozing airstrips, hammering up hotels, laying out marinas, opening new banks, night clubs, and gift shops, are to him merely a passing plague. They have come before and gone before."
Author: Herman Wouk

And usually I love the sound of the words, the way they dance on the page. Today, they fall flat. My attention bobbing in the cosmos. All free brain-space is marinating in gap month fizz. I chew my pen, candy-cane style. The million possibilities ahead make it hard to care about right now. I write my answers slowly, each letter carved in stone not ballpoint. I'm going to explore the world, find my passion, try everything! The fizz shoots up my spine and a smile sprouts."
Author: Jolene Stockman

In a way, being on the outside would be like going to jail for Don Vito."

40. "Tenía una imponente cabellera, una laberíntica y ondeante guirnalda de espirales y bucles, ensortijados y lo bastante grandes para servir como adornos navideños. El desasosiego de su infancia parecía haber pasado a las enroscaduras de su sinuosa y espesa cabellera. Su cabellera irreversible. Podías fregar cazos con aquel cabello sin que se alterase más que si lo hubieran cosechado en las oscuras profundidades marinas, como si fuese un organismo que creciera en los arrecifes, un denso ónice vivo, híbrido de coral y arbusto, tal vez poseedor de propiedades medicinales."

47. "Marina Orlova was hooked on my quote about women not owing men. I scrolled through her posted paintings and recalled a Slovak friend once commenting on a guy wanna-be a great painter, something like this: "Aaano, on bol profesionalnym maljiarom na Slovensku, maloval tam pice a hakove krize po stenach". He meant graffiti, but I hesitate to translate it in detail for it may sound too rough. Another thought is about surreal, sometimes spurious aesthetics mixed with hinted or daring sexuality, which Marina Orlova endorses, deliberately or not, in line of her claimed profession. The posts call to mind The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover or even Titus Andronicus. No wonder, thousands of bozos are attracted to her internet activity because ..., well, the woman is hot."

48. "Fra cento anni, d'altronde, pensavo giunta sulla soglia di casa, le donne non saranno più il sesso protetto. Logicamente condivideranno tutte le attività e tutti gli sforzi che una volta erano stati loro negati. La balia scaricherà il carbone. La fruttivendola guiderà la macchina. Ogni presupposto basato sui fatti osservati quando le donne erano il sesso protetto sarà scomparso; ad esempio (in strada stava passando un plotone di soldati) l'idea che le donne, i preti e i giardinieri vivano più a lungo. Togliete questa protezione, esponete le donne agli stessi sforzi e alle stesse attività, lasciatele diventare soldati, marinari, camionisti e scaricatori di porto, e vi accorgerete che le donne muoiono assai più giovani e assai più presto degli uomini; cosicché si dirà: "Oggi ho visto una donna", come si diceva "Oggi ho visto un aereo". Può accadere qualunque cosa quando la femminilità cesserà di essere un'occupazione protetta, pensavo, aprendo la porta."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "But they are practically brother and sister," ejaculated Marina, thinking as many stupid people do that "practically" works both ways - reducing the truth of a statement and making a truism sound like the truth."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "Non so. Io non capisco nulla di nulla della vita. E' così strana…mi sento come se avessi passato tutta la mia esistenza in riva a uno stagno e d'un tratto vedessi il mare. E mi sento mancare il respiro, ma sono al tempo stesso piena di esaltazione. Io non voglio morire, voglio vivere. Comincio ad avere un nuovo coraggio…mi sembra di essere uno di quei vecchi marinai che salpavano un tempo per mari sconosciuti. Sì, la mia anima anela all'ignoto."
Author: W. Somerset Maugham
