Pero tengo que expresar por lo menos ese punto antes de que transcurra un minuto más. Mi rostro se pone caliente cuando él continúa:—Responde. Por favor. Es importante.

6. "Some ancient eukaryote swallowed a photosynthesizing bacteria and became a sunlight gathering alga. Millions of years later one of these algae was devoured by a second eukaryote. This new host gutted the alga, casting away its nucleus and its mitochondria, keeping only the chloroplast. That thief of a thief was the ancestor or Plasmodium and Toxoplasma. And this Russian-doll sequence of events explains why you can cure malaria with an antibiotic that kills bacteria: because Plasmodium has a former bacterium inside it doing some vital business."
Author: Carl Zimmer
7. "The Muria of central India set up adolescent dormitories (called ghotuls), where adolescents are free to sleep together, away from concerned parents. In the ghotul, the young people are encouraged to experiment with different partners, as it's considered unwise to become too attached to a single partner at this phase of life."
Author: Christopher Ryan
8. "There is in our natures a calamitous hunger for consummation."
Author: Clive Barker
9. "The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it all from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning. The universe is no narrow thing and the order within it is not constrained by any latitude in its conception to repeat what exists in one part in any other part. Even in this world more things exist without our knowledge than with it and the order in creation which you see is that which you have put there, like a string in a maze, so that you shall not lose your way. For existence has its own order and that no man's mind can compass, that mind itself being but a fact among others."
Author: Cormac McCarthy
10. "Al levantar los velos para mostrar como los mitos de la modernidad se iban formando a partir de la Resstauracion, Balzac nos ayuda a identificar la profunda continuidad que subyace en la aparente ruptura radical que se produce a partir de 1848."

Author: Delora Dennis
12. "Tambien los grandes carnavales de otros tiempos eran como un vómito colectivo, algo esencialmente sano, algo que los dejaba de nuevo aptos para soportar la vida, para sobrellevar la existencia y hasta he llegado a pensar que si Dios existe está enmascarado"
Author: Ernesto Sabato
13. "Tenho a náusea física da humanidade vulgar, que é, aliás, a única que há. E, capricho, às vezes, em aprofundar essa náusea, como se pode provocar um vómito para aliviar a vontade de vomitar.A intriga, a maledicência, a prosápia falada do que se não ousou fazer, o contentamento de cada pobre bicho vestido com a consciência inconsciente da própria alma, a sexualidade sem lavagem, as piadas como cócegas de macaco, a horrorosa ignorância da inimportância do que são..."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
14. "La humanidad necesita para vivir mitos y mentiras. Si uno ve la verdad escueta se pega un tiro."

18. "(...) o parvalhão reparou nela e aproximou-se para a cumprimentar. Haviam de ouvir a maneira como se cumprimentaram. Haviam de pensar que não se viam há vinte anos. Haviam de pensar que tomavam banho na mesma banheira ou coisa assim quando eram pequenos. Amigos do coração. Era de vómitos. O mais engraçado era que provavelmente se tinham encontrado uma única vez, numa festa pirosa qualquer. Finalmente, quando deram por terminadas as lambuzadelas, a amiga Sally apresentou-nos. Chamava-se George qualquer coisa - já nem sequer me lembro - e andava em Andover. Só mesmo visto. Haviam de o ver quando a amiga Sally lhe perguntou o que achava da peça. Era o tipo de armante que tem de se dar espaço para responder a qualquer pergunta que lhe façam."
Author: J.D. Salinger
19. "Harry ran upstairs to their dark dormitory. He pulled out the cloak and then his eyes fell on the flute Hagrid had given him for Christmas. He pocketed it to use on Fluffy — he didn't feel much like singing."
Author: J.K. Rowling
20. "Al rallentatore, Vishous chinò la testa bruna e Butch sentì come una carezza vellutata quando il pizzetto gli sfiorò la gola. Con precisione millimetrica, V premette le zanne contro la vena che saliva dal cuore dell'amico, poi lentamente, inesorabilmente, lo trafisse. I loro petti si toccarono.Butch chiuse gli occhi, assaporando quella sensazione, il calore dovuto alla vicinanza fisica, la morbidezza dei capelli di V sulla mascella, la potenza del braccio virile che gli scivolava intorno alla vita. Quasi animate da volontà propria, le sue mani si staccarono dai pioli posandosi sui fianchi di V, stringendo con forza quella carne soda, unendo i loro corpi dalla testa ai piedi. Un fremito percorse uno dei due. O forse... merda, forse erano rabbrividiti entrambi.E poi basta. Chiuso. Finito. Da non ripetersi mai più."
Author: J.R. Ward

24. "Homer and Candy passed by the empty and brightly lit dispensary; they peeked into Nurse Angela's empty office. Homer knew better than to peek into the delivery room when the light was on. From the dormitory, they could hear Dr. Larch's reading voice. Although Candy held tightly to his hand, Homer was inclined to hurry – in order not to miss the bedtime story."
Author: John Irving
25. "If slavery be the destined sword of the hand of the destroying angel which is to sever the ties of this Union, the same sword will cut in sunder the bonds of slavery itself. A dissolution of the Union for the cause of slavery would be followed by a servile war in the slave-holding States, combined with a war between the two severed portions of the Union. It seems to me that its result might be the extirpation of slavery from this whole continent; and, calamitous and desolating as this course of events in its progress must be, so glorious would be its final issue, that, as God shall judge me, I dare not say that it is not to be desired."
Author: John Quincy Adams
26. "Al ritorno, casualmente, si trattennero per qualche istante lungo la strada dove abramo aveva parlato con il signore, e lì caino disse, Ho un pensiero che non mi abbandona, Che pensiero, domandò abramo, Penso che a sodoma e nelle altre città che sono state incendiate c'erano degli innocenti, Se ci fossero stati, il signore avrebbe rispettato la promessa che mi ha fatto di risparmiargli la vita, I bambini, disse caino, quei bambini erano innocenti, Mio dio, mormorò abramo, e la sua voce fu come un gemito, Sì, sarà pure il tuo dio, ma non è stato il loro."
Author: José Saramago
27. "Los persas no necesitan haber vivido el amor en sus propias carnes. En sus cuentos y mitos, incluso en el libro sagrado, el amor está por todas partes."
Author: Kader Abdolah
28. "I spent the last Friday of summer vacation spreading hot, sticky tar across the roof of George Washington High. My companions were Dopey, Toothless, and Joe, the brain surgeons in charge of building maintenance. At least they were getting paid. I was working forty feet above the ground, breathing in sulfur fumes from Satan's vomitorium, for free.Character building, my father said.Mandatory community service, the judge said. Court-ordered restitution for the Foul Deed. He nailed me with the bill for the damage I had done, which meant I had to sell my car and bust my hump at a landscaping company all summer. Oh, and he gave me six months of meetings with a probation officer who thought I was a waste of human flesh.Still, it was better than jail.I pushed the mop back and forth, trying to coat the seams evenly. We didn't want any rain getting into the building and destroying the classrooms. Didn't want to hurt the school. No, sir, we sure didn't."
Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
29. "—¿Me echas de menos? —preguntó Justine.—No —dijo él—, me paso el día entero prohibiéndome echarte de menos. No me permito pensar en nubes, besos sabrosos ni en lo suaves que son los espacios entre los dedos de tus pies, ni en las ganas que tengo de hablar contigo hasta que hayamos consumido todo el oxígeno en la habitación. Y, sobre todo no me recreo en el hecho de que esté donde esté siempre hay un vacío a mi lado que tiene exactamente tu forma y tamaño."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
30. "The old men from the charity hospital next door would come jerking past our rooms, making useless, disjointed leaps. They'd go from room to room, spitting out gossip between their decayed teeth, purveying scraps of malignant worn-out slander. Cloistered in their official misery as in an oozing dungeon, those aged workers ruminated the layer of shit that long years of servitude deposit on men's souls. Impotent hatreds grown rancid in the pissy idleness of dormitories. They employed their last quavering energies in hurting each other a little more. In destroying what little pleasure they had left. Their last remaining pleasure! Their shriveled carcasses contained not one solitary atom that was not absolutely vicious!"
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
31. "—Te odio, Marcos Pessaro —dijo en un susurro que él, por supuesto, escuchó alto y claro.—No es cierto, Marina Miralles -respondió mientras subía las escaleras hacia su dormitorio—. Quizá más tarde. Ahora sólo me deseas."
Author: Lucía De Vicente
32. "I'm not used to girls, or familiar with their customs. I feel awkward around them, I don't know what to say. I know the unspoken rules of boys, but with girls I sense that I am always on the verge of some unforeseen, calamitous blunder."
Author: Margaret Atwood
33. "Quise decirle muchas cosas a la ladrona de libros, sobre la belleza y la crueldad, pero ¿qué podía contarle sobre todo eso que ella no supiera? Quise explicarle que no dejo de sobreestimar e infravalorar a la raza humana, que pocas veces me limito únicamente a valoraría. Quise preguntarle cómo un mismo hecho puede ser espléndido y terrible a la vez, y una misma palabra, dura y sublime. Sin embargo, no abrí la boca. Sólo conseguí hablar para confiarle a Liesel Meminger la única verdad que hago mía. Se lo dije a la ladrona de libros, y ahora te lo digo a ti.ÚLTIMA NOTA DE LA NARRADORALos humanos me acechan."
Author: Markus Zusak
34. "Pâna ?i lectura are o func?ie mitologica, nu numai pentru ca înlocuie?te rostirea miturilor în societa?ile arhaice ?i literatura orala, care se mai pastreaza în comunita?ile rurale din Europa, ci mai ales pentru ca îi permite omului midern o „ie?ire din timp", asemanatoare cu cea înlesnita de mituri (...) omul modern este proiectat, prin lectura, în afara duratei sale personale ?i integrat altor ritmuri, traind într-o alta „istorie"."
Author: Mircea Eliade
35. "O mito é o motor poderoso capaz de buscar a emoção primitiva, aquela que está arraigada profundamente no coração do homem, e trazê-la limpa, fresca e sanguinolenta para a flor da realidade."
Author: Murilo Carvalho
36. "O homem veio das cavernas primitivas e no fundo de seu cérebro foi construindo mitos que o ajudavam a entender as forças da natureza; uma natureza violenta, que o batia com suas tempestades, seus raios; com os vulcões, as neves e o frio doloroso; com a fome, a sede, as feras bravias que o impediam de dormir em paz. Mas, principalmente, o assediava com a doença, um acontecimentos incompreensível, que rompia todo o senso, toda a vida. Daí surgiram os deuses, a magia, a necessidade de se aplacar com a fé as forças do desconhecido."
Author: Murilo Carvalho
37. "Matters came to a head after 1918, when the French scientist Paul Portier published his rhetorical masterpiece Les Symbiotes. He was nothing if not bold, claiming that: ‘All living beings, all animals from Amoeba to Man, all plants from Cryptogams to Dicotyledons are constituted by an association, the emboîtement of two different beings. Each living cell contains in its protoplasm formations, which histologists designate by the name of mitochondria. These organelles are, for me, nothing other than symbiotic bacteria, which I call symbiotes."
Author: Nick Lane
38. "Podróznik, wracajacy z starozytnej ziemi,Rzekl do mnie: „Nóg olbrzymich z glazu dwoje sterczyWsród puszczy bez tulowia. W poblizu za niemiTonie w piasku strzaskana twarz. Jej wzrok szyderczy,Zaciete usta, wyraz zimnego rozkazuSwiadcza, iz rzezbiarz dobrze na tej bryle glazuOdtworzyl skryte zadze, co, choc w poniewierce,Przetrwaly reke mistrza i mocarza serce.A na podstawie napis dochowal sie calo:«Ja jestem Ozymandias, król królów. Mocarze!Patrzcie na moje dziela i przed moja chwalaGincie z rozpaczy!» Wiecej nic juz nie zostalo...Gdzie stapic, gruz bezksztaltny oczom sie ukazeI piaski bielejace w pustyni obszarze."
Author: Percy Bysshe Shelley
39. "Ambos acordaban que el regreso de la sensibilidad pura era paralelo a la herejía por la obsesión estética. Las cosas verdaderamente tristes habían llegado a un punto de exacerbación tal que la historia del patito feo era la versión minimalista(el mito fundacional) que organizaba la tragedia de los muchos millones que tenían ojos, y se encontraban por tanto "observados y revelados como feos acusadoramente por si mismos y el resto". Los cancioneros modernos elevaban delicados himnos a la certidumbre de la pateticidad intrínseca, a la autoconciencia recobrada so forma de espejos:dime, ¿me dejarías llorar sobre tu hombro?he oído decir que probarias lo que fuera al menos dos vecescierra los ojos, y piensa en alquien que te atraiga físicamentey déjame besarte, oh déjame besartey entonces abre tus ojos, y veras a alguien al quedesprecias físicamentepero mi corazón está abiertomi corazon está entregado a ti[bis]"
Author: Pola Oloixarac
40. "I am very poor - for a know nothing, understand nothing. It is not a calamitous condition until it is realized."
Author: Rafael Sabatini
41. "The connective tissue in his face is dissolving, and his face appears to hang from the skull. He open his mouth and gasps into the bag, and the vomiting goes on endlessly. It will not stop, and he keeps bringing up liquid, long after his stomach should have been empty. The airsickness bag fills up to the brim with a substance known as the "vomito negro", or the black vomit. The black vomit is not really black; it is a speckled liquid of two colors, black and red. The black vomit is loaded with virus."
Author: Richard Preston
42. "Why were all his fantasies so calamitous for that table, which had done him no injury?"
Author: Scott Lynch
43. "Cat priveste coordonatele intinse intre psihanaliza si filozofia lui Schopenhauer el nu numai ca a aparat intaietatea afectivitatii si importanta preponderenta a sexualitatii, dar a ghicit chiar mecanismul refularii; nu mi-au permis insa sa le cunosc doctrina. L-am citit pe Schopenhauer foarte tarziu. Pe Nietzsche, celalalt filosof ale carui intentii si puncte de vedere concorda adesea in maniera cea mai uimitoare cu rezultatele greu cucerite ale pishanalizei, l-am evitat mult timp tocmai din aceasta cauza; tin deci, mai putin la intaietate, dorind sa raman liber de orice prevenire."
Author: Sigmund Freud
44. "Categoria Celuilalt este în aceeasi masura originara ca si constiintaînsasi. In societatile cele mai primitive, în mitologiile cele maivechi, se regaseste întotdeauna o dualitate care este a Aceluiasi si aCeluilalt."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
45. "Love in all eight tones and all five semitones of the word's full octave."
Author: Stephen Fry
46. "The concept that really gets the goat of the gay-hater, the idea that really spins their melon and sickens their stomachs is that most terrible and terrifying of all human notions, love.That one can love another of the same gender, that is what the homophobe really cannot stand. Love in all eight tones and all five semitones of the world's full octave.Love as Agape, Eros and Philos; love as infatuation, obsession and lust; love as torture, euphoria, ecstasy and oblivion (this is beginning to read like a Calvin Klein perfume catalogue); love as need, passion and desire."
Author: Stephen Fry
47. "Para mim, estar inocente significa não se ter nascido ou estar-se morto. Admito isto, estou pronto a reconhecer que há muitas espécies diferentes de culpa: uma culpa mais inocente do que a da maioria, e uma mais carregada, uma que transborda do sentimento da falta e outra que corre apenas gota a gota."
Author: Stig Dagerman
48. "L'essere umano è davvero una creatura straordinaria. Ha scoperto il fuoco, edificato città, scritto magnifiche poesie, dato interpretazioni del mondo, inventato mitologie etc... Ma allo stesso tempo non ha smesso di fare la guerra ai suoi simili, non ha smesso di ingannarsi, di distruggere l'ambiente circostante. La somma algebrica fra vigore intellettuale e coglioneria dà un risultato quasi nullo. Dunque, decidendo di parlare di imbecillità, rendiamo in un certo senso omaggio a questa creatura che è per metà geniale, per metà imbecille"
Author: Umberto Eco
49. "Segundo certo mito, cada qual procura no amor a outra metade que lhe falta. Assim é. Somente essa metade, no amor como em tudo o que se procura, é sempre inalcançável. Ter o que se procura está por vezes ao nosso alcance. O que não está nunca ao nosso alcance é ter o que se procura, depois de se alcançar. Mas só o que procura depois de se ter é que vale a pena. O resto é derrota de todas as vitórias. Só que a vitória que não se alcança é uma derrota a dobrar."
Author: Vergílio Ferreira
50. "In New York alone, there was an average of more than 300 campus fires per year between 1997 and 2000, with roughly 160 of them annually in dormitories."
Author: Vito Fossella
