1. "Acolo unde domneste luciditatea, scara valorilor devine inutila."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "Remain Healthy All Day: Drink a spoonful of oil every morning. Reach up with your arms and extend your body to its full height. Use a warm towel to dry the cat. Consider a philosophical idea larger than your area of expertise. Avoid getting cancer. Chalk up bad decisions to outside influences. Don't take your father too seriously. Play a game where you close your eyes very tightly, and when you open your eyes, you have amnesia and you must draw the details of your life from your surroundings. Give up smoking, drinking, and poetic verse. Remind yourself how important you are to your friends or at least your animals. Wax the floor in socks. Enter into a healthy, monogamous relationship. Consider briefly the idea of a soulmate. Light an entire box of matches and throw it into the sink. Hold a metal rod to the heavens and beg for whatever comes next."
Author: Amelia Gray
3. "... While much recent historicist criticism has assumed early nineteenth-century readers attuned to subtle ideological nuances in poetry, actual responses from readers often come closer to clulessness. ... It is no surprise that no one understood Blake, but other poets fared not much better. ... Coleridge's 'Christabel' was 'the standing enigma which puzzles the curiosity of literary circles. What is it all about?', while another reviewer asked about Shelley, 'What, in the name of wonder on one side, and of common sense on the other, is the meaning of this metaphysical rhapsody about the unbinding of Prometheus?'. Even Keats was condemned for 'his frequent obscurity and confusion of language' and his 'unintelligible quaintness'. Byron, never to be outdone, boasted in 'Don Juan' that not only did he not understand many of his fellow poets, he did not understand himself either: 'I don't pretend that I quite understand / My own meaning when I would be very fine.' ..."
Author: Andrew Elfenbein
4. "What can I do now? What am I to become? How can I live in this world I'm condemned to but can't endure? They couldn't stand it either, so they made a world of their own. Well, they have each other's company, and they are heroes, whereas I'm quite alone, and have none of the qualities essential to heroism - the spirit, the toughness, the dedication. I'm back where I was as a child, solitary, helpless, unwanted, frightened."
Author: Anna Kavan

Author: Anne Rice

Author: Aristophanes
8. "You know," Taniel said, "we could have kept firing after they sounded the retreat. Would have wiped out thousands on the mountainside. The Kez did that to us in Fatrasta a few times."Gavril snorted angrily. "War has to have some decorum. Otherwise it's back to the Bleakening for all of us, and Kresimir be damned."
Author: Brian McClellan
9. "Forest, I fear you! In my ruined heart your roaring wakens the same agony as in cathedrals when the organ moans and from the depths I hear that I am damned."
Author: Charles Baudelaire

Author: Clarence Darrow
11. "The individual cannot think and communicate his thought, the governor and legislator cannot act effectively or frame his laws without words, and the solidity and validity of these words is in the care of the damned and despised litterati...when their very medium, the very essence of their work, the application of word to thing goes rotten, i.e. becomes slushy and inexact, or excessive or bloated, the whole machinery of social and of individual thought and order goes to pot."
Author: Ezra Pound
12. "I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man."
Author: George Washington
13. "Una noche, mientras soñaba en un rebaño de ciegos que iban por un prado de hierba alta, la respuesta vino de manera improvisa:«Yo soy uno para quien los demás no existen». Aquella ceguera y amnesia de los hombres hacia mí era una prueba que de ninguna otra manera hubiera podido superar. Los hombres no me reconocían ya, pero yo me había reencontrado, y ahora podía recomenzar mi vida sin temblar más."
Author: Giovanni Papini
14. "I think the ethos for Gov. Romney is to use a whole variety of policies, of which tax policy is one, to try to raise the rate of growth. We've had a recovery from the financial crisis that would be well below what one might normally expect for a recovery from such a deep recession. And to counteract that we need better tax policy."
Author: Glenn Hubbard
15. "It is vital that Iraq and the United States together send the clearest possible signal that those who commit acts of violence against American military forces and American civilians will not be rewarded with amnesty."
Author: Ike Skelton
16. "Caci nu cuno?tea om – dupa aprecierea lui insu?i – mai inapt pentru o astfel de îndragostire subita decât el. Fiindca îndragostirile subite se nasc din lipsa de contact cu subcon?tientul. Pentru majoritatea oamenilor, subcon?tientul e o absen?a miraculoasa, ca ?i Dumnezeu; când apare, cand izbucne?te, mai exact, e splendoarea unei mînii sau fatalitatea unei porunci care depa?e?te puterea min?ii ?i energia voin?ei. Mintea cade în genunchi ?i se tîra?te, înfrico?ata ?i supusa. ?i oarba."
Author: Ionel Teodoreanu
17. "A cold blast hit him and he laughed at the sting as he stepped outside, surveyed the night sky, and drank deeply.Such a good liar he was. Such a good one.Everyone thought he was fine because he'd camo'd his little problems. He wore a Sox hat to hide the eye twitch. Set his wristwatch to go off every half hour to beat back the dream. Ate though he wasn't angry. Laughed though he found nothing funny.And he'd always smoked like a chimney."
Author: J.R. Ward
18. "This is why Caliban was a punishment. I realize it now -- it's a beautiful, perfect world of nothingness. No connection, no longing, no . . . love. A world we're trapped in until we're needed here, a world we're condemned to while everyone we might care about forgets us."
Author: Jackson Pearce
19. "Son, never trust a man who doesn't drink because he's probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. They're the judges, the meddlers. And, son, never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. They're usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that they're a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You can't trust a man who's afraid of himself. But sometimes, son, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. It's damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when he's heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl."
Author: James Crumley
20. "Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does."

22. "In the bottom right-hand corner was a decent-sized color photo of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Trudeau posing with their new acquisition. Brianna, ever photogenic, as she damned well be, emanated glamour. Carl looked rich, thin, and young, he thought, and Imelda was as baffling in print as she was in person. Was she really a work of art? Or was she just a hodgepodge of bronze and cement thrown together by some confused soul working hard to appear tortured?"
Author: John Grisham
23. "Pociagla twarz o rysach lewantynskich,dziobata cere ukrywaja baczki;kiedy wyjmuje papierosa z paczki,bezbarwny pierscien nad palcu rozblyskiemdwustuwatowym nagle wzrok poraza.Moja soczewka jest bardzo wrazliwa,mruze wiec oczy - i on sie odzywa,krztuszac sie dymem przy slowie "przepraszam".Styczen na Krymie. Czarnomorski brzegzima odwiedza jakby dla zabawy:nawet nie moze utrzymac sie sniegna ostrych klingach wysokiej agawy.Swieca pustkami restauracje. Dymipaskudnie brudny ichtiozaur na redziei zalatuje laurami zgnilymi."Nalac wam tego paskudztwa?" "Nalejcie."A wiec zmierzch, usmiech i karafka. W mrokugdzies w dali barman, zaciskajac dlonie,jak mlody delfin wznieca kregi wokólfeluki chamsa po brzeg wypelnionej.Czworokat okna. Zóltofiolet pylaodblaski garnków. Na tle ciemnej palmyleca sniezynki. Zatrzymaj sie chwilonie tyle piekna, co niepowtarzalna."
Author: Joseph Brodsky
24. "When we touched… it all clicked into place. He was my soul mate; I could feel it when he was near. Our bodies together made sense; our lives on a whole had new meaning. We were no longer condemned to walk alone like the undead."
Author: K.I. Lynn
25. "Boy, you're good at figuring things out. Isn't he? Except that if anybody's the devil in this room it's _you_, buster." An extraordinary bitterness came into his face. "I've seen you before. I know you, all right, preacher man. Age after age, you come back. You always lead the crusades. You're so damned golden-tongued, other people just flock to die for your causes. You die with them, it's true, because you're stupid enough to believe your own great lies; but you always come back again somehow. Oh, I know _you_."
Author: Kage Baker
26. "Strategy is methodical, but the one who steers chaos and randomness can steer God."
Author: Lionel Suggs
27. "I'm not that complicated, Haven. The truth is, I've wanted you ever since I met you in that damned wine cellar. Because I got a bigger charge out of that five minutes than I have with any woman before or since..."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
28. "The resentment I felt inside was not hatred for being imprisoned or for Victor who had betrayed me but something deeper: a rebellion against the very way of things that condemned men to be imprisoned inside their own identities."
Author: MacDonald Harris
29. "How to announce the return of comfort and well-being except by cooking something fragrant. That is what her mother always did. After every calamity of any significance she would fill the atmosphere of the house with the smell of cinnamon rolls or brownies, or with chicken and dumplings, and it would mean, This house has a soul that loves us all, no matter what. It would mean peace if they had fought and amnesty if they had been in trouble. It had meant, You can come down to dinner now, and no one will say a thing to bother you, unless you have forgotten to wash your hands. And her father would offer the grace, inevitable with minor variations, thanking the Lord for all the wonderful faces he saw around his table."
Author: Marilynne Robinson
30. "Mitt Romney, you can criticize him for a lot of things, and that's fair, but he knows how the economy works."
Author: Mario Diaz Balart
31. "Jerome was a marvelous advocate of chastity: yet hear his confession: "O, how often have I thought myself to be in the midst of the vain delights and pleasures of Rome, even when I was in the wild wilderness." Again, "I, who for fear of hell had condemned myself to such a prison, thought myself oftentimes to be dancing among young women, when I had no other company, but scorpions and wild beasts. My face was pale with fasting, but my mind was inflamed with desires in my cold body: and although my flesh was half-dead already, yet the flames of fleshly lust, boiled within me, etc."
Author: Martin Luther
32. "Romney economics would spell disaster for America's middle class. In this economy there are shipbuilders and ship wreckers."
Author: Martin O'Malley
33. "And to crown the whole, you must needs come back and make a martyr of yourself, so now anyone who cares a farthing for your life must watch you hanged; that is, if they do not decide to make a spectacle of it and draw and quarter you in the fine old style. I suppose you would go to it like Harrison, 'as cheerful as any man could do in that condition.' Well, I should not be damned cheerful, and neither should anyone else who loved you, and some of them can knock down half of London Town if they should choose."
Author: Naomi Novik
34. "What people do isn't determined by where they live. It happens to be their damned fault. They decided to watch TV instead of thinking when they were in high school. They decided to blow-off courses and drink beer instead of reading and trying to learn something. They decided to chicken out and be intolerant bastards instead of being openminded, and finally they decided to go along with their buddies and do things that were terribly wrong when there was no reason they had to. Anyone who hurts someone else decides to hurt them, goes out of their way to do it. . . . The fact that it's hard to be a good person doesn't excuse going along and being an asshole. If they can't overcome their own fear of being unusual, it's not my fault, because any idiot ought to be able to see that if he just acts reasonably and makes a point of not hurting others, he'll be happier."
Author: Neal Stephenson
35. "I am damned,' thinks Bunny Munro in a sudden moment of self-awareness reserved for those who are soon to die."
Author: Nick Cave
36. "Vezi tu , uneori Dumnezeu asteapta de la tine sa pui si tu umarul.Iti poti dori anumite lucruri.Poti visa.Poti spera.Dar trebuie sa si actionezi in directia acelor dorinte , visuri si sperante.Trebuie sa te intinzi dincolo de locul in care te afli ca sa poti ajunge acolo unde vrei sa fi."
Author: Nick Vujicic
37. "Jack was already mother-naked when he heard the cry and saw the splash. He slipped from the gunwale into the clear water, made out the vague form at a surprising depth, dived, fished it up, swam to the ship, now a hundred yards away, roared for a line, passed the inanimate Herapath up the side, and followed himself. 'Mr Pullings,'he cried, very angry. 'Put an end to this infernal hallooing instantly. Always the same God-damned foolery, every time a man goes overboard. Damn you all for a mob of mad lunatics. Get along forward. Silence fore and aft."
Author: Patrick O'Brian
38. "You can say that I endorse Mitt Romney, but that's not just because I'm a white man. We all have things which we're for and ideas which we support."
Author: Pete Sessions
39. "You're my light, Ori. Really.""Oh, no. We're too damned for secret love, Leo. I do not support love triangle.""Not that, silly. I mean you're my source of entertainment here."

42. "I'm the first man you saw today," he pointed out, "so I'm officially your valentine."She let out a harsh laugh. "Because of a silly superstition? I think not.""Because I want to be," he said in a low voice. "And because you want me to be, too."Her gaze would have skewered a stone. "Want a drunken debaucher fresh from some whore's bed as my valentine? Not if you were the last man on earth."She slammed the door in his face.His brothers laughed, but he ignored them. He couldn't blame her for being angry; he'd given her good reason to be so.But it didn't change a thing. He'd be damned if he let her go now. One way or the other, Maria Butterfield was going to be his. One way or the other, she would share his bed."
Author: Sabrina Jeffries
43. "From now on when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I planned to say, Amnesiac."
Author: Sue Monk Kidd
44. "We talked about many issues, like welfare, is it the way of life or hand up? Talked about size of government, how much should it tax families and small businesses? And when we left that lunch, we got in the car and I looked over at Chuck and said, 'I'll be damned. we're Republicans.'"
Author: Susana Martinez
45. "Two things specially avail unto improvement in holiness, namely firmness to withdraw ourselves from the sin to which by nature we are most inclined, and earnest zeal for that good in which we are most lacking."
Author: Thomas à Kempis
46. "Wheels have been set in motion, and they have their own pace, to which we are...condemned. Each move is dictated by the previous one - that is the meaning of order. If we start being arbitrary it'll just be a shambles: at least, let us hope so. Because if we happened, just happened to discover, or even suspect, that our spontaneity was part of their order, we'd know that we were lost. A Chinaman of the T'ang Dynasty - and, by which definition, a philosopher - dreamed he was a butterfly, and from that moment he was never quite sure that he was not a butterfly dreaming it was a Chinese philosopher. Envy him; his two-fold security."
Author: Tom Stoppard
47. "El olvido de que la democracia es una deliberación sobre finalidades, sobre las cuales a la ciencia, ni siquiera la economía, no les corresponde dirimir, es una amnesia muy grave pues significa olvidar el fundamento de la democracia."
Author: Tomás Moulian
48. "Hail, happiness, then, and after happiness, hail not those dreams which bloat the sharp image as spotted mirrors do the face in a country-inn parlour; dreams which splinter the whole and tear us asunder and wound us and split us apart in the night when we would sleep; but sleep, sleep, so deep that all shapes are ground to dust of infinite softness, water of dimness inscrutable, and there, folded, shrouded, like a mummy, like a moth, prone let us lie on the sand at the bottom of sleep."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "A man may well be condemned, not for doing something, but for doing nothing."
Author: William Barclay
50. "Palestinian terrorism has to be rejected and condemned, yes. But it should not be translated defacto into a policy of support for a really increasingly brutal repression, colonial settlements and a new wall."
Author: Zbigniew Brzezinski
