Author: Alan M. Dershowitz
2. "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.' (Leviticus 18:22).

Author: Andrea Dworkin
3. "La mia vita è monotona. Io do la caccia ale galline, e gli uomini danno la caccia a me. Tutte le galline si assomigliano, e tutti gli uomini si assomigliano. E io mi annoio perciò. Ma se tu mi addomestichi, la mia vita sarà come illuminata. Conoscerò un rumore di passi che sarà diverso da tutti gli altri. Gli altri passi mi fanno nascondere sotto terra. Il tuo mi farà uscire dalla tana, come una musica. E poi, guarda! Vedi, laggiù in fondo, dei campi di grano? Io non mangio il pane e il grano, per me è inutile. I campi di grano non mi ricordano nulla. E questo è triste! Ma tu hai i capelli color dell'oro. Allora sarà meraviglioso quando mi avrai addomesticato. E amerò il rumore del vento nel grano...» disse la volpe."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

"...enslaved black males were socialized by white folks to believe that they should endeabor to become patriarchs by seeking to attain the freedom to provide and protect for black women, to be benevolen patriarchs. Benevolent patriarchs exercise their power without using force. And it was this notion of patriarchy that educated black men coming from slavery into freedom sought to mimic. However, a large majority of black men took as their standard the dominator model set by white masters. When slavery ended these black men often used violence to dominate black women, which was a repetition of the strategies of control white slave masters used."
Author: Bell Hooks
8. "Au temps de La Barbarie à visage humain, je disais, comme Camus : l'idéologie est un multiplicateur de massacres ; on tue d'autant plus, et en d'autant plus grand nombre, qu'on le fait dans la bonne conscience de hâter, ce faisant, l'avènement du Bien - communisme, fascisme, angélismes exterminateurs de toutes sortes, ivresse logique des assassins. (...) non ; c'est le contraire ; le pire ce sont les massacres aveugles ; le plus redoutable ce sont les exterminations que rien ne déclenche mais que rien, du coup, n'est capable d'arrêter ; gare à ceux pour qui le fait de tuer un homme n'a pas plus de sens ni d'importance que de trancher une tête de chou ! gare au démon, non de l'Absolu, mais du Néant ! (ch. 10De l'insensé, encore)"
Author: Bernard Henri Lévy

11. "There were reprints of American editorials. Liberals saw it as a resurgence of social protest and decried the discrimination, poverty, and hunger that had provoked it. Conservative columnists acidly pointed out that hungry people don't steal stereo systems first and called for a crackdown in law enforcement. All of the reasoned editorials sounded hollow in light of the perverse randomness of the event. It was as if only a thin wall of electric lighting protected the great cities of the world from total barbarism."
Author: Dan Simmons
12. "I look for two things when I am about to launch into a book. First, there has to be a dramatic arc to the story itself that will carry me, and the reader, from beginning to end. Second, the story has to weave through larger themes that can illuminate the world of the subject."
Author: David Maraniss

"?? ??????? ???????? ???? ?? ??????, ??? ??????? ?????? ??? ???? ?????? . ????? ??? ???? ?? ??????? ?? ???? ????????????? ?????, ??? ???? ???????? ? ?????? ???? ???? ?????. ?????? ?? ???? ??????? ?????? ???????, ??? ???? ???? ?? ???? ???? ??????Real filth is the one inside. The rest simply washes off. There is only one type of dirt that cannot be cleansed with pure waters, and that is the stain of hatred and bigotry contaminating the soul. You can purify your body through abstinence and fasting, but only love will purify your heart."
Author: Elif Shafak
14. "There is no wilderness so dreary but that His love can illuminate it, no desolation so desolate but that He can sweeten it. I know what I am saying. It is no delusion. I believe the highest, purest happiness is known only to those who have learned Christ in sickrooms, in poverty, in racking suspense and anxiety, amid hardships, and at the open grave."
Author: Elizabeth Payson Prentiss

"I have generally been denominated a Deist, the reality of which I never disputed, being conscious I am no Christian, except mere infant baptism make me one; and as to being a Deist, I know not, strictly speaking, whether I am one or not, for I have never read their writings; mine will therefore determine the matter; for I have not in the least disguised my sentiments, but have written freely without any conscious knowledge of prejudice for, or against any man, sectary or party whatever; but wish that good sense, truth and virtue may be promoted and flourish in the world, to the detection of delusion, superstition, and false religion; and therefore my errors in the succeeding treatise, which may be rationally pointed out, will be readily rescinded."

20. "Ogni essere vivente, pensavo, agisce per istinto e l'unico modo per tenerlo sempre vivo nelnostro spirito, è quello di metterci in condizione di cavarcela da soli. Un po' come un animalecresciuto in cattività: se fosse riportato nel suo habitat naturale, rischierebbe di morire affamato,poiché non ha più l'istinto di cacciare. Così pensavo che anche negli esseri umani accadessequalcosa di simile e per autodifesa tendono ad allontanare chi minaccia di azzerare quell'istinto."
Author: Gianluca Frangella
21. "Gun-free zones don't deter criminals-they help them by providing a guarantee that they will not face any armed resistance. But they do deter the law-abiding. A faculty member with a concealed-handgun permit who breaks the campus gun ban would be fired and likely find it impossible to get admitted to another school. Bringing a firearm into a gun-free zone can have serious adverse consequences for law-abiding people. But for someone like the Virginia Tech killer, the threat of expulsion is no deterrent at all."
Author: Glenn Beck
22. "Something is wanting, and something must be done, or we shall be involved in all the horror of failure, and civil war without a prospect of its termination."

24. "I don't know what I expected – no maybe I do, Al Pacino from Scarface- but this drug dealer is more like Al Pacino at the beginning of The Godfather reasonably bemused, untouched by his criminal world, sitting with Diane Keaton whispering about Luca Brazzi, not yet asleep with the fishes, or like Al Pacino from Glengarry Glen Ross, although actually, now that I think about it, he's not like Al Pacino at all but more like Kevin Spacey from that film, and who's ever been afraid of Kevin Spacey?"
Author: Jess Walter
25. "Time remorselessly rambles down the corridors and streets of our lives. but it is not until autumn that most of us become aware that our tickets are stamped with a terminal destination."

Author: John Zakour
27. "What one man does is something done, in some measure, by all men. For that reason a disobedience committed in a garden contaminates the human race; for that reason it is not unjust that the crucifixion of a single Jew suffices to safe it. Perhaps Schopenhauer is right: I am all others, any men is all men, Shakespeare is in some way the wretched John Vincent Moon."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
28. "Whatever one man does, it is as if all men did it. For that reason, it is not unfair that one disobedience in a garden should contaminate all humanity; for that reason it is not unjust that the crucifixion of a single Jew should be sufficient to save it."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges

Author: Kenneth Lay
30. "I looked at Reth hopefully. "You?""Must we really waste more time? Not all of us here are immortal, and I'd think you and Jack would more carefully guard what little you have. We should go immediately to my queen.""Can you get us in or not?"He looked at the ceiling, his features dripping with disdain for the entire operation. "I suppose if you were to stand immediately outside her door I could use my sense of where you are to navigate into her room and open the door from the inside.""That's my pretty faerie boy!""If you ever address me like that again, I will make that abomination on your head permanent."I put my fingers up to the brunette wig, horrified. "You wouldn't.""I suggest you do not attempt to find out."
Author: Kiersten White
31. "La mayoría de las personas creen que tienen una idea clara de lo que es correcto e incorrecto. Muchos dicen saber cómo actuar, o cómo manejar una situación extrema. Pero para ser honestos, nadie lo sabe. No de verdad. Incluso si dicen: "!Nunca voy a hacer esto o aquello¡" eso en realidad puede no ser cierto. Porque ninguno de nosotros realmente sabe lo que vamos a hacer cuando las circunstancias son tan abrumadoras y complejas que ni siquiera podemos distinguir el bien del mal. Y luego están las situaciones totalmente imprevistas, cuando la vida maneja cartas que nunca esperaste, o cuando algo que consideras malo se transforma en algo correcto y tu mente determina que lo que una vez fue una regla, no está escrita en piedra. Incluso si nunca te pasó, apuesto a que entenderás exactamente de lo que estoy hablando."
Author: Lurlene McDaniel
32. "English dramatic literature is, of course, dominated by Shakespeare; and it is almost inevitable that an English reader should measure the value of other poetic drama by the standards which Shakespeare has already implanted in his mind."
Author: Lytton Strachey

And not only them but their family and distant relatives as well.That's a lot of people.Yes. Just think, the literal meaning of the Chinese characters for "revolution" is "elimination of life"
Author: Ma Jian
34. "Utopianism also attempts to shape and dominate the individual by doing two things at once: it strips the individual of his uniqueness, making him indistinguishable from the multitudes that form what is commonly referred to as 'the masses,' but it simultaneously assigns him a group identity based on race, ethnicity, age, gender, income, etc., to highlight differences within the masses."
Author: Mark R. Levin
35. "Anne Marie's beauty and style belie a down-and-dirty education in the particulars of practical AI (artificial insemination). She has miked a boar of his prodigious ejaculate--over two hundred milliliters (a cup), as compared to a man's three milliliters--and she has done it with her hand. For, unlike stallions and bulls, boars don't cotton to artificial vaginas. (in part, because their penis, like their tail, is corkscrewed.) AI techs must squeeze the organ in their hand--hard and without letup--for the entire duration of the ejaculation: from five to fifteen minutes. "You should see the size of their hands," she says, of the men and women who regular ejaculate boars."
Author: Mary Roach
36. "Os extremos delimitam a fronteira para além da qual a vida termina, e a paixão pelo extremismo, tanto em arte como em política, é um desejo de morte disfarçado."
Author: Milan Kundera
37. "Though we have rightly applauded our ancestors for their spiritual achievements (and do not and must not discount them now), those of us who prevail today will have done no small thing. The special spirits who have been reserved to live in this time of challenges and who overcome will one day be praised for their stamina by those who pulled handcarts."
Author: Neal A. Maxwell
38. "I have seen women who are very interested in tech finish their graduate or undergraduate degrees, but then choose not to pursue a career in tech because they're not sure they want to spend the next 20-30 years in an industry that's very male dominated."
Author: Padmasree Warrior
39. "I grew up in Europe, and I used to like those very slow-moving European films. I've been contaminated by the American TV culture, and I just want things to move faster now."
Author: Rebecca De Mornay
40. "Damos por sentada la luz del día. En cambio, la luz de la luna es otra cuestión. Es inconstante. La luna llena mengua y reaparece. Las nubes pueden oscurecerla hasta un punto que no pueden oscurecer la luz del día. El agua es necesaria para nosotros, pero una cascada no lo es. Y siempre que encontramos una cascada, no es sino algo superfluo, un bello ornamento. Necesitamos la luz del día, pero no la luz de la luna. Cuando llega, no cubre ninguna necesidad. Transforma. Cae sobre los márgenes y la hierba, separando una larga brizna de otra; convirtiendo un montón de hojas marrones y mates en innumerables y álgidos fragmentos; o iluminando las ramas húmedas como si la propia luz fuera dúctil. Sus largos rayos se derraman, blancos y afilados, entre los troncos de los árboles, y palidecen y retroceden al penetrar en la brumosa distancia de los bosques de hayas."
Author: Richard Adams
41. "Believe me, my children have more stamina than a power station."
Author: Robbie Coltrane

Author: Samuel Alito
45. "This is probably the advantage of being stupid. Stupid people just do. We tend to overthink. If we could eliminate the "over" and just think, then we could do, too. Only we'd be smarter doers because we'd be thinkers."
Author: Sarah Strohmeyer
46. "Alcohol removes inhibitions. It doesn't trigger criminal violence where there was none before."
Author: Tammara Webber
47. ". . . I realized with a growing and startling sense of clarity that the seminary was educating and training me for a world that no longer existed. Moreover, the posture of this particular brand of Christianity toward the surrounding culture was one of enormous suspicion and at times hostility. It seemed that part of this evolving designation involved a posture of entrenchment and argument toward culture. But I loved culture. I loved the freedom to engage with people for the purpose of friendship and dialogue, not simply evangelism."
Author: Tim Keel
48. "How did we suddenly become entranced with gangster culture? I saw it this morning on campus. When did the black community say we should all look like criminals?"
Author: Tim Reid

Today's Quote

He would have denied it, even to himself -deemed it a laughable affectation- but it seemed to him now that he had always secretly believed that in the way he lived (he refused to say his "lifestyle"), in his freelance, un-health-insured, sparsely thinged life, he was in a small way registering a rejection-of conformity, of middle-class convention, of not just acquisitiveness but enslavement to the idol of "security." Nevertheless, he'd wound up in the same place as everyone else. Was this - latte liberalism - his inescapable fate? Surely it was. It was sheer vanity to pretend otherwise."
