5. "Hay días en que pienso que ser de izquierdas es una especie de facultad, como la memoria. Todos la tenemos en estado de latencia. Si no la usas nunca, te mueres sin enterarte de que la tenías. La prueba de que está ahí, sin embargo, es que en determinadas situaciones aparece.Muchas veces se confunde con el orgullo. Pero hay dos clases de orgullo. Para mí, cuando esa facultad no está involucrada el orgullo es puro amor propio. Y cuando el orgullo es amor propio, lo que sale es la pataleta, el sofocón, se pone la cara roja y falta el aire. En cambio, si esa facultad interviene el orgullo se generaliza. La persona comprende que la ofensa, el abuso, lo que sea, no se lo están haciendo sólo a ella; y se le llenan los pulmones de aire;dice «no puede ser» y las tres palabras vienen de muy lejos, de muchos compañeros caídos y compañeras, de muchas personas aplastadas, humilladas; y aflora en ella un valor, una determinación con los que no soñaba."
Author: Belén Gopegui

9. "Miller concludes: "To a culture that believes they ‘go to heaven' based on whether or not they are morally pure, or that they understand some theological ideas, or that they are very spiritual, Jesus is completely unnecessary. At best, He is an afterthought, a technicality by which we become morally pure, or a subject of which we know, or a founding father of our woo-woo spirituality."5"
Author: Carl Medearis
10. "Coal, oil and gas are called fossil fuels, because they are mostly made of the fossil remains of beings from long ago. The chemical energy within them is a kind of stored sunlight originally accumulated by ancient plants. Our civilization runs by burning the remains of humble creatures who inhabited the Earth hundreds of millions of years before the first humans came on the scene. Like some ghastly cannibal cult, we subsist on the dead bodies of our ancestors and distant relatives. - Dr. Carl Sagan"
Author: Carl Sagan
11. "Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror."

13. "My approach to 'Star Trek' was, 'I know science fiction, and I know screen writing.' That was very arrogant of me, but you really need to be a little bit arrogant to think that what you have to say is good enough to justify the expense of hundreds of thousands - now millions of dollars - to make an episode of the TV show."
Author: David Gerrold
14. "Property is no longer about power, personality andcommand. It's not about vulgar display or tasteful display. Because it no longer has weight or shape.The only thing that matters is the price you pay. Yourself, Eric, think. What did you buy for your onehundred and four million dollars? Not dozens of rooms, incomparable views, private elevators. Not therotating bedroom and computerized bed. Not the swimming pool or the shark. Was it air rights? Theregulating sensors and software? Not the mirrors that tell you how you feel when you look at yourselfin the morning. You paid the money for the number itself. One hundred and four million. This is whatyou bought. And it's worth it. The number justifies itself."
Author: Don DeLillo
15. "I am obligated and I will pay hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes to the American government. I already paid and I will keep paying whatever taxes I owe based on my time as a U.S. citizen."

20. "The educated man pictures a horde of submen, wanting only a day's liberty to loot his house, burn his books, and set him to work minding a machine or sweeping out a lavatory. 'Anything,' he thinks, 'any injustice, sooner than let that mob loose.' He does not see that since there is no difference between the mass of rich and poor, there is no question of setting the mob loose. The mob is in fact loose now, and--in the shape of rich men--is using its power to set up enormous treadmills of boredom, such as 'smart' hotels."
Author: George Orwell
21. "With an annual investment of $66 billion by 2007, we can save 8 million lives each year."
Author: Gro Harlem Brundtland
22. "The soul is not a single unity; that is what it is destined to become, and that is what we call 'immortality'. Your soul is still composed of many 'selves', just as a colony of ants is composed of many single ants. You bear within you the spiritual remains of many thousand ancestors, the heads of your line. It is the same with all creatures. How could a chicken that is artificially hatched in an incubator immediately look for the right food, if the experience of millions of years were not stored inside it? The existence of 'instinct' indicates the presence of our ancestors in our bodies and in our souls."
Author: Gustav Meyrink
23. "The Global Poverty Project's mission is to stand up for the world's poorest people. We fight for the full funding of Millennium Development Goals and advocate meaningful change to government and corporate policies that block progress and entrench injustice."

Enough with the excuses and the avoidance, and trying to be someone else, anyone else.Even if he got shanked, even if his precious little ego and his dumbass little heart got shattered into a million pieces, it was time to stop the bullshit. It was time to be a male.As Blay started to straighten like a message had been received, Qhuinn thought, That's right buddy: Our future has come"
Author: J.R. Ward
25. "Each and every one of the security measures we implement serves an important goal: providing safe and efficient air travel for the millions of people who rely on our aviation system every day."
Author: Janet Napolitano
26. "Seeing no better jobs on the horizon than flipping hamburgers with so much grease it would make Portugal, Italy, and Spain jealous, I decided to go back to school. It reminds me of something Zelda's mom told her in November 2007: "Some people flip condos and make millions. Your boyfriend couldn't even flip burgers and make minimum wage."
Author: Jarod Kintz
27. "A fashionable idea in technical circles is that quantity not only turns into quality at some extreme of scale, but also does so according to principles we already understand. Some of my colleagues think a million, or perhaps a billion, fragmentary insults will eventually yield wisdom that surpasses that of any well-thought-out essay, so long as sophisticated secret statistical algorithms recombine the fragments. I disagree. A trope from the early days of computer science comes to mind: garbage in, garbage out."
Author: Jaron Lanier
28. "Nous, les êtres humains, somme ce que nous avons été pendant des millions d'années, colossalement avides, envieux, agressifs, jaloux, angoissés et désespérés, avec d'occasionnels éclairs de joie et d'amour. Nous sommes une étrange mixture de haine, de peur et de gentillesse ; nous sommes à la fois violents et en paix. Il y a eu un progrès extérieur depuis le char à boeufs jusqu'à l'avion à réaction, mais psychologiquement l'individu n'a pas du tout changé et c'est l'individu qui, dans le monde entier, a créé les structures des sociétés. Les structures sociales extérieures sont les résultantes des structures intérieures, psychologiques, qui constituent nos relations humaines, car l'individu est le résultat de l'expérience totale de l'homme, de sa connaissance et de son comportement. Chacun de nous est l'entrepôt de tout le passé. L'individu est l'humain qui est toute l'humanité. L'histoire entière de l'homme est écrite en nous-mêmes."
Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
29. "Well, by the end of the millennium, five, six months from now, we hope to somehow manage to move into a new location where we have the whole building, so we can devote space to all our activities."
Author: Joseph Jarman
30. "I want the best of everything for everybody, and it will cost millions."
Author: Joyce Cary
31. "Aquella mañana el ruido de los grillos era ensordecedor, el chirrido de tantos animales nuevos en la oscuridad —se habían multiplicado desde que empezó la ralentización—. Igual que los demás insectos. Ahora que había tan pocos pájaros medraban los organismos más pequeños. Cada vez había más arañas en nuestros techos. En los desagües del baño asomaban escarabajos. Tuvimos que suspender uno de los entrenamientos de fútbol cuando millones de mariquitas se posaron a la vez sobre el campo. Incluso la belleza en abundancia puede ser horripilante."
Author: Karen Thompson Walker
32. "Son todas líneas", pensó y comenzó a ver a cada una de esas personas como una raya trazada sobre un hipotético mapa. Un gigantesco enredo de calles que se cruzaban, se rozaba, se unían y luego proseguían adelante. Allí afuera, en los caminos del mundo, había miles de millones de líneas, de recorridos de vida. Miles de millones de direcciones. Calles enfiladas, desviadas por azar, a veces interrumpidas bruscamente. Pensó que dos enamorados no eran más que dos recorridos a merced del azar. Podían dibujar los trayectos más absurdos en el mapamundi, dirigirse a cualquier parte y no encontrarse jamás. O bien cruzarse también varias veces y no reconocerse. Podían tomar el mismo autobús todas las mañanas, sin saber nada el uno del otro. Así hasta el fin de sus días, sin relacionarse. Pero bastaba muy poco: un intercambio de frases, incluso casual, y las líneas se abrían mágicamente unido. Dos grises trazos de un solitario recorrido se habrían convertido en una sola calle compartida."
Author: Leonardo Patrignani
33. "Though she isn't stupid at all. "Wow, other people are mastering this, even people who were as clueless as I was in the beginning, and I just can't seem to learn to think in this manner." 5. Caroline Sacks was experiencing what is called "relative deprivation," a term coined by the sociologist Samuel Stouffer during the Second World War. Stouffer was commissioned by the U.S. Army to examine the attitudes and morale of American soldiers, and he ended up studying half a million men and women, looking at everything from how soldiers viewed their commanding officers to how black soldiers felt they were being treated to how difficult soldiers found it to serve in isolated outposts. But one set of questions Stouffer asked stood out. He quizzed both"
Author: Malcolm Gladwell
34. "The lesson here is very simple. But it is striking how often it is overlooked. We are so caught in the myths of the best and the brightest and the self-made that we think outliers spring naturally from the earth. We look at the young Bill Gates and marvel that our world allowed that thirteen-year-old to become a fabulously successful entrepreneur. But that's the wrong lesson. Our world only allowed one thirteen-year-old unlimited access to a time sharing terminal in 1968. If a million teenagers had been given the same opportunity, how many more Microsofts would we have today?"
Author: Malcolm Gladwell
35. "These Americans are among the working poor with full-time jobs earning $5.15 an hour. Millions fall into this boat, even more when you consider that the poverty line has not been adequately adjusted to reflect the true level of poverty in this country."
Author: Marcy Kaptur
36. "If he wants to be an asshole, it's a free country. Millions before him have made the same life choice."
Author: Margaret Atwood
37. "We are actually living in a million parallel realities every single minute."
Author: Marina Abramovic
38. "For lack of love one does a million other things."
Author: Marty Rubin
39. "Nearby,one of the overexcited frat boys started wildly windmilling his arms. He had overbalanced and now tipped himself right over the wall.In a second, the diver with us had grabbed his ankle and hauled him back.The sharks, instead of being attracted by the flailing, like they are in every single scary underwater movie, took one sideways look and promptly turned tail,heading for the other side of the tank. They stayed there and didn't come back.The culprit's buddies pounded him when we climbed out of the water. "Smooth move, Ex-Lax," one muttered. "Way to be a buzzkill.""hey" was the red-faced retort, "at least I can say I scared off a shark."
Author: Melissa Jensen
40. "Just calling one's practice "approach and accomplishment" and staying in retreat for years will produce nothing but hardship. Completing hundreds of millions of mantras will not even bring the warmth of the ordinary qualities that mark one's progress on the path! In other words, if the essential points of the path are not taken into account, perseverance will amount to nothing more than chasing a mirage."
Author: Patrul Rinpoche
41. "It's the same misconception I used to have. I meet people and think they're millionaires and they're not."
Author: Peter Hook
42. "To cut 1930s jobless, FDR taxed corps and rich. Govt used money to hire many millions. Worked then; would now again. Why no debate on that?"
Author: Richard D. Wolff
43. "But of course, now we're told we're in recovery but this sure doesn't feel like a recovery to more than 9 percent of the Americans out there who are unemployed, or the 16 percent of the African-Americans, 11 percent of Hispanics in the same position, or the millions who can only find part-time work or those who have even stopped looking for a job."
Author: Rick Perry
44. "The only group large enough to handle," the world's biggest, "problems is the network of millions of local churches around the world. We have the widest distribution, largest group of volunteers, local credibility, the promises of God, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the inevitability of history."
Author: Rick Warren
45. "And when the hourglass has run out, the hourglass of temporality, when the noise of secular life has grown silent and its restless or ineffectual activism has come to an end, when everything around you is still, as it is in eternity, then eternity asks you and every individual in these millions and millions about only one thing: whether you have lived in despair or not."
Author: Søren Kierkegaard
46. "[Walmart]s largest innovation consists in getting rid of the central Fordist principle of paying the workers enough so that they can afford to buy what they manufacture. Instead, WalMart has pioneered the inverse principle: paying the workers so little that they cannot afford to shop anywhere other than at WalMart. It might even be said, not too hyperbolically, that WalMart has singlehandedly preserved the American economy from total collapse, in that their lowered prices are the only thing that has allowed millions of the "working poor" to retain the status of consumers at all, rather than falling into the "black hole" of total immiseration. WalMart is part and parcel of how the "new economy" has largely been founded upon transferring wealth from the less wealthy to the already-extremely-rich."
Author: Steven Shaviro
47. "That's what Jesus meant," whispers the ghost of Slothrop's first American ancestor William, "venturing out on the Sea of Galilee. He saw it from the lemming point of view. Without the millions who had plunged and drowned, there could have been no miracle. The successful loner was only the other part of it: the last piece to the jigsaw puzzle, whose shape had already been created by the Preterite, like the last blank space on the table.""Wait a minute. You people didn't have jigsaw puzzles.""Aw, shit."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
48. "The political Greeders mindset wastes resources that could transform the future of tens of millions of people and the destinies of the countries.We need to rethink Leadership and politics."
Author: Tony Dovale
49. "Every time one of my books sells a million copies in paperback, Pan Macmillan gives me a gold statuette of Pan. I have about 20 of them."
Author: Wilbur Smith
50. "La vie sexuelle étroite, misérable, prétendument "apolitique" doit être étudiée dans son rapport avec les problèmes de la société autoritaire. La politique n'a pas pour domaine les déjeuners diplomatiques, mais la vie quotidienne. La conscience sociale est donc indispensable dans la vie quotidienne. Si les 1800 millions d'habitants de la planète parvenaient à comprendre l'action des cent principaux diplomates, tout irait pour le mieux ; la société et les besoins de l'homme ne seraient plus dès lors gouvernés par l'intérêt des armuriers et des politiciens. Mais ces 1800 millions d'hommes seront incapables de maîtriser leur propre destin tant qu'ils n'auront pas pris conscience de leur vie personnelle dans sa modestie. Ce qui les empêche, ce sont ces deux puissances intérieures : le moralisme sexuel et le mysticisme religieux. (p. 35, Préface de la seconde édition)"
