1. "[T]he relentless note of incipient hysteria, the invitation to panic, the ungrounded scenarios--the overwhelming and underlying desire for something truly terrible to happen so that you could have something really hot to talk about--was still startling. We call disasters unimaginable, but all we do is imagine such things. That, you could conclude mordantly, is the real soundtrack of our time: the amplification of the self-evident toward the creation of paralyzing, preëmptive paranoia."
Author: Adam Gopnik
2. "Aperfeiçoaram a arte de nos dar só a liberdade suficiente. Suficiente para que, quando estamos a ponto de morder, nos ofereçam um ossinho e então rolemos, de barriga para cima, à vontade e saciados, como um cão que vi uma vez (...)"
Author: Ally Condie
3. "The neural basis for the self, as I see it, resides with the continuous reactivation of at least two sets of representations. One set concerns representations of key events in an individual's autobiography, on the basis of which a notion of identity can be reconstructed repeatedly, by partial activation in topologically organized sensory maps. ... In brief, the endless reactivation of updated images about our identity (a combination of memories of the past and of the planned future) constitutes a sizable part of the state of self as I understand it.The second set of representations underlying the neural self consists of the primordial representations of an individual's body ... Of necessity, this encompasses background body states and emotional states. The collective representation of the body constitute the basis for a "concept" of self, much as a collection of representations of shape, size, color, texture, and taste can constitute the basis for the concept of orange."
Author: Antonio R. Damasio
4. "There is a thinking in primordial images, in symbols which are older than the historical man, which are inborn in him from the earliest times, eternally living, outlasting all generations, still make up the groundwork of the human psyche. It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them."
Author: C.G. Jung
5. "What I want is to live of that initial and primordial something that was what made some things reach the point of aspiring to be human."
Author: Clarice Lispector
6. "Through me is the way to the city of woe. Through me is the way to sorrow eternal. Through me is the way to the lost below. Justice moved my architect supernal. I was constructed by divine power,supreme wisdom, and love primordial. Before me no created things were. Save those eternal, and eternal I abide. Abandon all hope, you who enter."
Author: Dante Alighieri
7. "That we are rational agents—that a great many of our actions are not merely the results of serial physiological urges but are instead dictated by coherent conceptual connections and private deliberations—is one of those primordial data I mentioned above that cannot be reduced to some set of purely mechanical functions without producing nonsense. That a number of cognitive scientists should be exerting themselves to tear down the Cartesian partition between body and soul, hoping to demonstrate that there is no Wonderful Wizard on the other side pulling the levers, is poignant proof that our mechanistic paradigms trap much of our thinking about mind and body within an absurd dilemma: we must believe either in a ghost mysteriously animating a machine or in a machine miraculously generating a ghost. Premodern thought allowed for a far less restricted range of conceptual possibilities."
Author: David Bentley Hart
8. "Can't you treat yourself with a bit more consideration?''Why should I?' Mordion said, hugging the duvet round himself.'Because you're a person, of course!' Ann snapped at him. 'One person ought to treat another person properly even if the person's himself!"
Author: Diana Wynne Jones
9. "Fine, if you see no reason to worry about bisonbecks who do the bidding of Risto'-- he sat down on a log and pulled out his lunch--'or mordakleeps who team up with anything nasty and currently have a wonderful working relationship with that same evil wizard Risto, then why should I worry? Why should we warn Kale?'Leetu's scowl turned darker.Dar lifted his sandwich to his mouth, but had one more thing to say before he bit into it. 'Actually, I agree with you. Worrying now over an encounter that might occur later would only ruin our digestion."
Author: Donita K. Paul
10. "... tan seguro estoy de que mi alma existe como de que la perversidad es uno de los impulsos primordiales del corazón humano, una de las facultades primarias indivisibles, uno de esos sentimientos que dirigen el carácter del hombre."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
11. "Doing things like playing music, something that's so natural and basic to human function, running around in nature, eating delicious food. These things are intrinsic in basic, primordial to human beings, so that's sort of a way to return to a blank canvas, allowing my true personality to return."
Author: Ezra Miller
12. "Você desencarcera-se da carne vertendo-te no hálito que eu devoro de beijo em beijo por entre línguas e mordidas."
Author: Filipe Russo
13. "The notion that not only the biopolymer but the operating program of a living cell could be arrived at by chance in a primordial organic soup here on the Earth is evidently nonsense of a high order."
Author: Fred Hoyle
14. "Me habían vuelto a pagar y mi deuda había aumentado en ocho dólares. Me atormentaba a mí mismo preguntándome adónde iba a parar ese dinero, aunque yo lo sabía muy bien. Salía deshidratado del trabajo, como lo esperaba la compañía. Marcaba entonces mi combinación en la fuente y obtenía un chorro de Gaseosa; veinticinco centavos que volaban de mi sueldo. Como el chorro era escaso pedía otro; cincuenta centavos. La cena era insulsa, como siempre, y yo no podía pasar más de dos mordiscos de Gallina. En seguida sentía hambre y me iba a la cantina donde me daban a crédito algunas Crocantes. Las Crocantes me secaban la garganta y tenía que volver a la Gaseosa. Y la Gaseosa me daba ganas de comer. Comía otra Crocante... ¿Había pensado en todo esto Fowler Schocken cuando organizó Astromejor Verdadero, el primer trust esférico? ¿De la Gaseosa a las Crocantes, de las Crocantes a los Astro de los Astro a la Gaseosa?Y el dinero adelantado se pagaba con un interés del seis por ciento."
Author: Frederik Pohl
15. "Fiziologii ar trebui sa mai chibzuiasca înainte de a afirma ca in¬stinctul primordial al unei fiinte organice este instinctul de conser¬vare. Fiinta vie nazuieste înainte de toate sa dea curs liber puterii sale -viata, ea însasi, este voita de putere -: instinctul de con¬servare fiind doar o consecinta indirecta, una dintre cele mai frec¬vente ale ei. - Pe scurt, aici precum si în alta parte, atentie fata de principiile teleologice inutile! – cum este acela al instinctului de conservare (pe care îl datoram inconsecventei lui Spinoza). În acest fel se ordoneaza metoda ce trebuie sa fie, în esenta, economie de principii."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
16. "Suppose a human being has thus put his ear, as it were, to the heart chamber of the world will and felt the roaring desire for existence pouring from there into all the veins of the world, as a thundering current or as the gentlest brook, dissolving into a mist—how could he fail to break suddenly? How could he endure to perceive the echo of innumerable shouts of pleasure and woe in the "wide space of the world night," enclosed in the wretched glass capsule of the human individual, without inexorably fleeing toward his primordial home, as he hears this shepherd's dance of metaphysics? But if such a work could nevertheless be perceived as a whole, without denial of individual existence; if such a creation could be created without smashing its creator—whence do we take the solution of such a contradiction?"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
17. "Morda išcete družbo in toplino, na primer, toda ce je vaš nezavedni namen zadržati ljudi v razdalji, boste doživljali izkušnjo locitve in bolecine spet in spet, vse dokler ne boste razumeli, da jo ustvarjate vi sami. Na koncu se boste odlocili, da boste ustvarjali skladnost in ljubezen. Izbrali boste, da boste k sebi privabljali tokove z najvišjo frekvenco, ki jih lahko nudi vsak položaj. Na koncu boste razumeli, da ljubezen zdravi vse in da vse, kar je samo ljubezen"
Author: Gary Zukav
18. "The menopause of Sarah became her menostart; this is feminine beauty! The death plot against Mordecai became his life spring; this is masculine beauty! A kind of life lived in God's word is a life of miraculous beauty!"
Author: Israelmore Ayivor
19. "And as the captains gazed south to the Land of Mordor, it seemed to them that, black against the pall of cloud, there rose a huge shape of shadow, impenetrable, lightning-crowned, filling all the sky. Enormous it reared above the world, and stretched out towards them a vast threatening hand, terrible but impotent: for even as it leaned over them, a great wind took it, and it was all blown away, and passed; and then a hush fell."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
22. "Saruman," I said, "I have heard speeches of this kind before, but only in the mouths of emissaries sent from Mordor to deceive the ignorant. I cannot think that you brought me so far only to weary my ears."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
23. "But Sauron was not of mortal flesh, and though he was robbed now of that shape in which had wrought so great an evil, so that he could never again appear fair to the eyes of Men, yet his spirit arose out of the deep and passed as a shadow and a black wind over the sea, and came back to Middle-earth and to Mordor that was his home. There he took up again his great Ring in Barad-dur, and dwelt there, dark and silent, until he wrought himself a new guise, an image of malice and hatred made visible; and the Eye of Sauron the Terrible few could endure."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
24. "Frodo: Go back, Sam! I'm going to Mordor alone.Sam: Of course you are, and I'm coming with you!"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
25. "Growl he would, from the moment the petting began till it ended. But it was a growl with a new note in it. A stranger could not hear this note, and to such a stranger the growling of White Fang was an exhibition of primordial savagery, nerve–racking and blood–curdling. But White Fang's throat had become harsh–fibred from the making of ferocious sounds through the many years since his first little rasp of anger in the lair of his cubhood, and he could not soften the sounds of that throat now to express the gentleness he felt."
Author: Jack London
26. "Entonces mis manos buscan hundirse en tu pelo, acariciar lentamente la profundidad de tu pelo mientras nos besamos como si tuviéramos la boca llena de flores o de peces, de movimientos vivos, de fragancia oscura. Y si nos mordemos el dolor es dulce, y si nos ahogamos en un breve y terrible absorber simultáneo del aliento, esa instantánea muerte es bella. Y hay una sola saliva y un solo sabor a fruta madura, y yo te siento temblar contra mí como una luna en el agua."
Author: Julio Cortázar
27. "The krill are in a rebuilding year. The krill are always in a rebuilding year. Every year the whole franchise of 60,000,000,000 krill gets eaten. Team Whale sucks Team Krill into the primordial combs of its baleen plates at twenty-eight knots. We've got a decent offense but we've got a pretty dismal record on defense. But this is going to be our season. With all your might, try to believe that."
Author: Karen Russell
28. "Trzymajcie sie z dala od czlowieka, który pracowal w pocie czola nad rozwiazaniem jakiejs zagadki, rozwiazal ja i stwierdzil, ze nie jest madrzejszy niz przedtem - powiada Bokonon. - Przepelnia go bowiem mordercza pogarda do ludzi, którzy sa równie glupi jak on, ale nie doszli do swojej glupoty równie ciezka praca."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Author: Martin Heidegger
35. "Le mythe, écrit Mircea Eliade, "raconte une histoire sacrée; il relate un événement qui a eu lieu dans le temps primordial, le temps fabuleux des commencements. Autrement dit, le mythe raconte comment, grâce aux exploits des Etres surnaturels, une réalité est venue à l'existence, que ce soit la réalité totale: le cosmos,, ou seulement un fragment: une île, une espèce végétale, un comportement humain, une institution. C'est donc toujours le récit d'une "création": on rapporte comment quelque chose a été produit, a commencé à être" ("Aspects du mythe")."
Author: Mircea Eliade

37. "Jesús le decía a Lázaro: "Levántate y anda". Pero Lázaro no se levantaba. "Levántate y anda", repetía Jesús. Pero Lázaro no reaccionaba. Jesús, que se parecía a Severino, el conductor del camión cisterna, se enfadaba. Menudo papelón. Cuando Jesús te dice levántate y anda, tienes que hacerlo, sobre todo si estás muerto. Pero Lázaro no hacía ni caso: seguía inmóvil. Entonces Jesús empezaba a zarandearlo como a un muñeco, y al fin Lázaro se levantaba y le daba un mordisco en el cuello. "Deja en paz a los muertos", decía con los labios chorreando sangre."
Author: Niccolò Ammaniti
38. "Non mi fido tanto delle trame che fioriscono nel cuore delle tenebre, sono parenti strette dei sogni, roba buona per gli psicoanalisti, ma non per scrivere qualcosa di decente. Ma per fortuna non è sempre così. Ogni tanto il nucleo primordiale di un racconto, una situazione paradossale, un lato inaspettato del carattere di un personaggio mi appare chiarissimo."
Author: Niccolò Ammaniti
39. "This is insane," I said blankly. "I'm the instrument of an all-powerful primordial deity's wave of chaos and destruction.""That's kind of extreme" said Dante jovially. "It's not like you work for Google or anything."
Author: Richelle Mead
40. "Most of us can manage no more than a narrow little obsession with a particular human who we mistakenly imagine can satisfy our gargantuan yearning for the real, primordial thing."
Author: Rob Brezsny
41. "[... Dance] involves every possible feeling (as potential), because it is of the body, which is lived (inescapably) as a body of feeling. Some of these feelings we can name, and some we cannot, since we associate feelings with language only when we name them. The body lives sentience on a preverbal level. Dance exists first on this primordial level, not on an intellectual plane (even though it requires skill and intelligence). Its inmost substance cannot be reasoned, only experienced."
Author: Sondra Horton Fraleigh
42. "Das Ende meiner ersten Liebe lässt sich mit dem Tod eines alten Freundes und der Trauer einer alten Freundin nicht vergleichen, aber es folgte dem gleichen Muster. Ganz genau sogar. Und wenn es mir so vorkam wie das Ende der Welt, angefangen mit den Selbstmordgedanken - so albern und halbherzig sie auch gewesen sein mochten - und dann einer grundlegenden Veränderung meines Weltbildes, so muss man sich vor Augen halten, dass ich keinen Maßstab hatte, an dem ich meine Gefühle hätte messen können. Das nennt man 'jung sein"
Author: Stephen King
43. "Blood magic glyphs lit up over his arms and while part of me wanted to finish the job, to stop whatever healing he was trying to perform, I had more important matters. Mordred wasn't going anywhere until he'd managed to heal himself."
Author: Steve McHugh
44. "Guenever never cared for God. She was a good theologian, but that was all. The truth was that she was old and wise: she knew that Lancelot did care for God most passionately, that it was essential he should turn in that direction. So, for his sake, to make it easier for him, the great queen now renounced what she had fought for all her life, now set the example, and stood to her choice. She had stepped out of the picture.Lancelot guessed a good deal of this, and, when she refused to see him, he climbed the convent wall with Gallic, ageing gallantry. He waylaid her to expostulate, but she was adamant and brave. Something about Mordred seems to have broken her lust for life. They parted, never to meet on earth."
Author: T.H. White
45. "Life lived in the absence of the psychedelic experience that primordial shamanism is based on is life trivialized, life denied, life enslaved to the ego."

Author: Thomas Malory
48. "Our purpose is to consciously, deliberately evolve toward a wiser, more liberated and luminous state of being; to return to Eden, make friends with the snake, and set up our computers among the wild apple trees. Deep down, all of us are probably aware that some kind of mystical evolution - a melding into the godhead, into love - is our true task. Yet we suppress the notion with considerable force because to admit it is to acknowledge that most of our political gyrations, religious dogmas, social ambitions and financial ploys are not merely counterproductive but trivial. Our mission is to jettison those pointless preoccupations and take on once again the primordial cargo of inexhaustible ecstasy. Or, barring that, to turn out a good thin-crust pizza and a strong glass of beer."
Author: Tom Robbins
49. "You always want someone to hate in order to feel justified in your own misery. Hatred is the true primordial passion. It is love that's abnormal. That is why Christ was killed: he spoke against nature. You don't love someone for your whole life - that impossible hope is the source of adultery, matricide, betrayal of friends … But you can hate someone for your whole life - provided he's always there to keep your hatred alive. Hatred warms the heart."
Author: Umberto Eco
50. "Un día la adornarán de piedras preciosas y se casará con un joven turco, al que sólo habrá visto de lejos, al través de una celosía, y con el que cruzará la palabra por vez primera en el momento de ser su esposa. La llevarán a una casa nueva, en la que vivirá como única señora si su marido no ama las costumbres antiguas, o en la que se confundirá con otras, iguales a ella en derechos, distintas a ella en alma, como si fuese de otro planeta. Su madre se extrañará de sus lágrimas y melancolías. Así vivió ella, así vivieron sus abuelas y todas las honradas damas temerosas de Dios. Pero la madre era feliz, abroquelada en su santa ignorancia: no la habían hecho morder el fruto embriagador de la cultura occidental... Y la infeliz reclusa de las tradiciones de su pueblo, asustada ante el porvenir, y mientras llega el momento del matrimonio, se consuela con la lectura, y devora las novelas francesas que llenan los escaparates de las librerías de la gran calle de Pera."
Author: Vicente Blasco Ibáñez

Most men unconsciously judge the world from themselves, and it will be very generally found that those who sneer habitually at human nature, and affect to despise it, are among its worst and least pleasant samples."
