1. "J'admire qu'on puisse trouver au bord de la Méditerranée des certitudes et des règles de vie, qu'on y satisfasse sa raison et qu'on y justifie un optimisme et un sens social. Car enfin, ce qui me frappait alors ce n'était pas un monde fait à la mesure de l'homme - mais qui se refer-mait sur l'homme. Non, si le langage de ces pays s'accordait à ce qui résonnait profondément en moi, ce n'est pas parce qu'il répondait à mes questions, mais parce qu'il les rendait inutiles. Ce n'était pas des actions de grâces qui pouvaient me monter aux lèvres, mais ce Nada qui n'a pu naître que devant des paysages écrasés de soleil. Il n'y a pas d'amour de vivre sans désespoir de vivre."
Author: Albert Camus

"Come, then, thou regenerate man, thou extravagant prodigal, thou awakened sleeper, thou all-powerful visionary, thou invincible millionaire,--once again review thy past life of starvation and wretchedness, revisit the scenes where fate and misfortune conducted, and where despair received thee.

Hide thy diamonds, bury thy gold, shroud thy splendor, exchange riches for poverty, liberty for a prison, a living body for a corpse!"

É só uma questão de como as coisas se processam no cérebro de uma pessoa e de outra, entende?"
Author: Camilo Gomes Jr.

16. "Le serpent qui danseQue j'aime voir, chère indolente,De ton corps si beau,Comme une étoffe vacillante,Miroiter la peau!Sur ta chevelure profondeAux acres parfums,Mer odorante et vagabondeAux flots bleus et bruns,Comme un navire qui s'éveilleAu vent du matin,Mon âme rêveuse appareillePour un ciel lointain.Tes yeux où rien ne se révèleDe doux ni d'amer,Sont deux bijoux froids où se mêlentL'or avec le fer.A te voir marcher en cadence,Belle d'abandon,On dirait un serpent qui danseAu bout d'un bâton.Sous le fardeau de ta paresseTa tête d'enfantSe balance avec la mollesseD'un jeune éléphant,Et ton corps se penche et s'allongeComme un fin vaisseauQui roule bord sur bord et plongeSes vergues dans l'eau.Comme un flot grossi par la fonteDes glaciers grondants,Quand l'eau de ta bouche remonteAu bord de tes dents,Je crois boire un vin de bohême,Amer et vainqueur,Un ciel liquide qui parsèmeD'étoiles mon coeur!"
Author: Charles Baudelaire

18. "Every life is a mystery. And every story of every life is a mystery. But it is not what happens that is the mystery.

If she had come along the Via Piemonte that day, but ten minutes later than she did, would it still have happened? Therein lies the real mystery. And no one ever knows, and no one ever will.("For The Rest Of Her Life")"

21. "If the life of natural things, millions of years old, does not seem sacred to us, then what can be sacred? Human vanity alone? Contempt for the natural world is contempt for life.

We return once more to the nightmare cultures of Hitler, Stalin, King Philip II, Montezuma, Caligula, Heliogabalus, Herod, the Pharaohs; Christ sacrificed himself in vain."
Author: Edward Abbey

The smile comprehended Montenegro's troubled history and sympathized with the brave struggles of the Montenegrin people.

My incredulity was submerged in fascination now; it was like skimming hastily through a dozen magazines."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
23. "A vulgaridade é um lar. O quotidiano é materno. Depois de uma incursão larga na grande poesia, aos montes da aspiração sublime, aos penhascos do transcendente e do oculto, sabe melhor que bem, sabe a tudo quanto é quente na vida, regressar à estalagem onde riem os parvos felizes, beber com eles, parvo também, como Deus nos fez, contente do universo que nos foi dado e deixando o mais aos que trepam montanhas para não fazer nada lá no alto."
Author: Fernando Pessoa

26. "Úrsula se perguntava se não era preferível se deitar logo de uma vez na sepultura e lhe jogarem a terra por cima, e perguntava a Deus, sem medo, se realmente acreditava que as pessoas eram feitas de ferro para suportar tantas penas e mortificações. E perguntando e perguntando ia atiçando sua própria perturbação e sentia desejos irreprimíveis de se soltar e não ter papas na língua como um forasteiro e de se permitir afinal um instante de rebeldia, o instante tantas vezes desejado e tantas vezes adiado, para cortar a resignação pela raiz e cagar de uma vez para tudo e tirar do coração os infinitos montes de palavrões que tivera que engolir durante um século inteiro de conformismo.– Porra! – gritou.Amaranta, que começava a colocar a roupa no baú, pensou que ela tinha sido picada por um escorpião.– Onde está? – perguntou alarmada.– O quê?– O animal! – esclareceu Amaranta.Úrsula pôs o dedo no coração.– Aqui – disse"
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
27. "Parfois, tu rêves que le sommeil est une morte lente qui te gagne, une anestésie douce et terrible à la fois, une nécrose heureuse : le froid monte le long de tes jambes, le long de tes bras, monte lentement, t'engourdit, t'annihile.Ton orteil est une montagne lointaine, ta jambe un fleuve, ta joue est ton oreiller, tu loges tout entier dans ton pouce, tu fonds, tu coules comme du sable, comme du mercure."
Author: Georges Perec
28. "Adieu, mon cher vieux. Relis et rebûche ton conte. Laisse-le reposer et reprends-le, les livres ne se font pas comme les enfants, mais comme les pyramides, avec un dessin prémédité, et en apportant des grands blocs l´un par-dessus l´autre, à force de reins, de temps et de sueur, et ça ne sert à rien! et ça reste dans le désert! mais en le dominant prodigieusement. Les chacals pissent au bas et les bourgeois montent dessus, etc.; continue la comparaison."
Author: Gustave Flaubert

32. "Il re degli antri che stan sotto il montee delle rocce aride scavate,che fu signore delle argentee fonti queste cose riavrà,già a lui strappateSul capo il suo diadema poserà,dell'arpa ancora sentirà il bel canto,ed in sale dorate echeggerà di melodie passate il dolce incantoSui monti le foreste ondeggeranno,ondeggeranno al sole l'erbe lucenti,le ricchezze a cascate scenderannoed i fiumi saranno ori fulgentiI ruscelli felici scorreranno i laghi brilleran nella campagna e dolori e tristezza svanirannoal ritorno del Re della Montagna"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
33. "Among all the occurrences possible in the universe the a priori probability of any particular one of them verges upon zero. Yet the universe exists; particular events must take place in it, the probability of which (before the event) was infinitesimal. At the present time we have no legitimate grounds for either asserting or denying that life got off to but a single start on earth, and that, as a consequence, before it appeared its chances of occurring were next to nil. ... Destiny is written concurrently with the event, not prior to it... The universe was not pregnant with life nor the biosphere with man. Our number came up in the Monte Carlo game. Is it surprising that, like the person who has just made a million at the casino, we should feel strange and a little unreal?"
Author: Jacques Monod
34. "J'avais deux raisons de respecter mon instituteur : il me voulait du bien, il avait l'haleine forte.Les grandes personnes doivent être laides, ridées, incommodes; quand elles me prenaient dans leurs bras, il ne me déplaisait pas d'avoir un léger dégoût à surmonter : c'était la preuve que la vertu n'était pas facile. Il y avait des joies simples, triviales : courir, sauter, manger des gâteaux, embrasser la peau douce et parfumée de ma mère; mais j'attachais plus de prix aux plaisirs studieux et mêlés que j'éprouvais dans la compagnie des hommes mûrs : la répulsion qu'ils m'inspiraient faisait partie de leur prestige ; je confondais le dégoût avec l'esprit de sérieux. J'étais snob."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
35. "Flying to Monterey I had a sharp apprehension of the many times before when I had, like Lincoln Steffens, "come back," flown west, followed the sun, each time experiencing a lightening of spirit as the land below opened up, the checkerboards of the midwestern plains giving way to the vast empty reach between the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada; then home, there, where I was from, me, California. It would be a while before I realized that "me" is what we think when our parents die, even at my age, who will look out for me now, who will remember me as I was, who will know what happens to me now, where will I be from."
Author: Joan Didion
36. "And as part of my activity there, he had indicated he wanted me to work with him on that and conduct the various technical tests. And so a few months later I moved from Southern California up to the Monterey Peninsula where I still live today."
Author: John Sexton
37. "As the wine went down in the bottles, patriotism arose in the three men. And when the wine was gone they went down the hill arm in arm for comradeship and safety, and they walked into Monterey. In front of an enlistment station they cheered loudly for America and dared Germany to do her worst. They howled menaces at the German Empire until the enlistment sergeant awakened and put on his uniform and came into the street to silence them. He remained to enlist them."
Author: John Steinbeck
38. "They walked side by side along the dark beach toward Monterey, where the lights hung, necklace above necklace against the hill. The sand dunes crouched along the back of the beach like tired hounds, resting: and the waves gently practiced at striking, and hissed a little. The night was cold and aloof, and its warm life was withdrawn, so that it was full of bitter warnings to man that he is alone in the world, and alone among his fellows; that he has no comfort owing him from anywhere."
Author: John Steinbeck
39. "Yo tuve un hermanono nos vimos nuncapero no importaba.Yo tuve un hermanoque iba por los montesmientras yo dormía.Lo quise a mi modole tomé su vozlibre como el agua.Camine de a ratoscerca de su sombrano nos vimos nuncapero no importaba.Mi hermano despiertomientras yo dormía.Mi hermano mostrándomedetrás de la nochesu estrella elegida."
Author: Julio Cortázar
40. "I decided not to go Bryce's house, where Rulfo and Monterroso were. When I stepped outside it started raining and that was like a warning to me. Nature was ordering me to turn back and I obeyed her docilely. So by eight at night I was already in bed, watching a detective movie on TV. Ease with which I change one plan for another. The gathering at Bryce's house will never be repeated, it was probably one of those unique and unforgettable occasions. I hate the rain."
Author: Julio Ramón Ribeyro
41. "Sancho, just as you want people to believe what you have seen in the sky, I want you to believe what I saw in the Cave of Montesinos. And that is all I have to say."

42. "(…) nada do que é manufacturado me agradada por comparação com as bruscas paisagens de Deus. (…) À Casa de Ouro ou ao tesouro do imperador Alexandre, prefiro o oceano Atlântico. O Coliseu aos pés do monte Oppio é menos belo que uma trovoada."
Author: Pascal Quignard
43. "Me provoca gran aversión hacer preguntas: tienen mucho de la fatalidad del juicio final. Se pone en marcha una pregunta y es como si se empujara una piedra. Uno está sentado tranquilamente en lo alto de su monte, y allá va la piedra, arrastrando a otras en su movimiento, y a lo mejor, un pobre infeliz, el que uno menos podía imaginar, recibe el golpe en la cabeza, en su propio jardín, y su familia tiene que cambiar de apellido. No, señor; para mí ya es una regla: cuanto más extraño parece un asunto, menos preguntas."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
44. "Your Highness, we must speak tonight," I whispered. "Alone." Enough was enough. I would not take any part in Princess Cantacuzene's plans, and I would not risk my life dallying with the Montenegrins any longer."Indeed?" he said, bringing my hand to his lips. I shuddered, realizing he had a different kind of conversation in mind than I did."
Author: Robin Bridges
45. "Gigi se olía una historia de Romeo y Julieta, una historia cuyo atractivo se le escapaba. La señorita Capuleto debería haberse casado con el hombre que sus padres eligieron para ella y luego haber tenido una aventura ardiente, pero muy discreta con el señor Montesco. No sólo habría seguido viva, sino que al cabo de un tiempo se habría dado cuenta de que Romeo era un joven imberbe y aburrido con poco que ofrecerle salvo bonitos tópicos. "Es el oriente, y Julieta es el sol". Por favor."
Author: Sherry Thomas
46. "Il y a toujours eu des femmes; elles sont femmes par leur structure physiologique; aussi loin que l'histoire remonte, elles ont toujours été subordinnées à l'homme; leur dépendance n'est pas la conséquence d'un événement ou d'un devenir, elle n'est pas arrivée."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
47. "I'd once again see that bob of blonde hair back on my pillow, that pink hot smile beaming toward me as I heroically win her heart in some kind of Count of Monte Cristo or Great Gatsby-esque gesture… you know minus the long imprisonment or swimming pool death!"
Author: Tom Conrad
48. "La forme, c'est le fond qui remonte à la surface."
Author: Victor Hugo
49. "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father refuse thy name, thou art thyself thou not a montegue, what is montegue? tis nor hand nor foot nor any other part belonging to a man What is in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, So Romeo would were he not Romeo called retain such dear perfection to which he owes without that title, Romeo, Doth thy name! And for that name which is no part of thee, take all thyself."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "Só o teu amor é o inimigo. Ti es ti, aínda que sexas un Montesco. ¿Que é un Montesco? Non é man, nin pé, nin brazo, nin cara, nin parte ningunha do corpo. ¡Cambia o nome!¿Que é un nome? O que chamamos rosa, con outro nome tería o mesmo recendo.Se Romeo non se chamase Romeo,conservaría a súa mesma perfección sen ese título. Romeo, rexeita ese nome que non forma parte de tie a cambio tómame a min."
Author: William Shakespeare
