1. "A notorious inability to express emotions makes human beings the only animals capable of suicide."
Author: Alain De Botton
2. "Well people often ask me how I felt growing up with a father who was a politician and who was often away. But when I'm asked that question I often reflect on my inability really to be able to answer it in any relative sense because I never grew up with a father doing anything else. So I just have no idea what it would be like otherwise."
Author: Alexander Downer
3. "Kavgalar tatliya baglanabilir, ama baskalarini mahcup düsürenler asla tümüyle unutulamaz."
Author: Anita Brookner
4. "Quietism, Buddhism, and other religions, everything which denies the flesh—is the great inferiority to God in ourselves, an escapism seeking sanctuary through fear of life and inability to accept 'this reality'. They were hurt? Or was the odalisque unsatisfactory or too expensive? They expected too much for too little, or were too mean to pay—therefore: "All is illusion". But the Stoic smilingly awaits the next shower of shit from heaven. Stoics are not Saviours, Saints or Heroes and are often confused and weary, yet they prefer to find their own way and to accept life as they find it. The schizophrenics, the melancholics and psychotics—they at least are secretive and inflict no religions on others. They prove the possibilities and utilities of 'as if' when totally accepted."
Author: Austin Osman Spare
5. "The modern habit of doing ceremonial things unceremoniously is no proof of humility; rather it proves the offender's inability to forget himself in the rite, and his readiness to spoil for every one else the proper pleasure of ritual."
Author: C.S. Lewis
6. "The Guide laughed. "You are falling into their own error," he said, "the change is not radical, nor will it be permanent. That idea depends on a curious disease which they have all caught---an inability to dis-believe advertisements. To be sure, if the machines did what they promised, the change would be very deep indeed. Their next war, for example, would change the state of their country from disease to death. They are afraid of this themselves---though most of them are old enough to know by experience that a gun is no more likely than a toothpaste or a cosmetic to do the things its makers say it will do. It is the same with all their machines. Their labour-saving devices multiply drudgery; their aphrodisiacs make them impotent: their amusements bore them: their rapid production of food leaves half of them starving, and their devices for saving time have banished leisure from their country. There will be no radical change."
Author: C.S. Lewis
7. "All business opportunities stem from someone else's inability to resolve a simple and inevitable problem."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
8. "Ölmek istiyorum, dekorsuz, poz almadan. Batan bir günes gibi ihtisamla degil, kaderin bileklerime taktigi prangalardan kurtulmak için ölmek. Mütevazi bir odadan süslü bir salona geçer gibi, realiteden tarihe geçmek umurumda degil. Ah inanabilseydim. Istirap gayyasinda aylarca kaldim, orada yalniz sükut vardi. Neredesin, yanan alnimi müsfik avuçlarinda dinlendirecek Meçhul Dost?"
Author: Cemil Meriç
9. "Does anyone beside me experience a deep sorrow that someone called a "Hero for the Planet" and a "star of the sustainability movement" is designing truck factories and Nike headquarters? Ninety percent of the large fish in the ocean are gone. Ninety-seven percent of the world's native forests have been cut. There are 2 million dams just in the United States. Once-mighty flocks of passenger pigeons are gone. Islands full of great aucks, gone. Rich runs of salmon, gone. Gone. Gone. Gone. The oceans are filled with plastic. Every stream in the United States is contaminated with carcinogens. The world is being killed, and this is the respond? Not only am I angry, not only am I disgusted, I am also deeply, deeply sorrowful. And I am deeply ashamed. We need to act differently."
Author: Derrick Jensen
10. "How can HOW help us repair our faltering global economy? Only by getting our "hows" right can we ensure that we are sustainable. This can only be achieved when we are rooted in, and inspired by, sustainable values. The global economic meltdown supplied a perfect, but painful, example of how sustainability cannot be guided by situational values. The economic crash occurred because too many financial companies became disconnected from fundamental values and long-term sustainable thinking. Instead of nurturing sustainable collaborations, banks, lenders, borrowers and shareholders pursued short-term relationships founded on situational values. More than ever we need to get out of this cycle of crises and build long-term success and deep human connections so that we achieve enduring significance in today's globally interconnected world."
Author: Dov Seidman
11. "In real-life situations apparently logical lines of argument are often (not always) based on an inability to see alternative possibilities.In a similar way the ability to think of an alternative explanation is by far the best way of destroying the arrogance of an apparently logical line of argument."
Author: Edward De Bono
12. "Rock bottom is an inability to cope with the commonplace that is so extreme it makes even the grandest and loveliest things unbearable...Rock bottom is everything out of focus. It's a failure of vision, a failure to see the world as it is, to see the good in what it is, and only to wonder why the hell things look the way they do and not some other way."
Author: Elizabeth Wurtzel
13. "I have an inability to relax. I try to make every day a work day. I get pleasure from work... I try to think of sketch ideas, stand-up pieces. I am incapable of leisure and leisure time."
Author: Fred Armisen
14. "...inability to lie is still far from being love to truth. Be on your guard! ... He who cannot lie, doth not know what truth is."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
15. "In TIME June 7, 2010On the sustainability of the publishing industry, in the Chicago Tribune:"I think that book publishing is about to slide into the sea. We live in a literate time, and our children are writing up a storm, often combining letters and numbers.... The future of publishing: 18 million authors in America, each with an average of 14 readers, eight of whom are blood relatives. Average annual earnings: $175." - 5/26/10"
Author: Garrison Keillor
16. "Kayitsizlik ise yatamaz. Isteyebilir ya da istemeyebilirsin, ne fark eder! Bir parti tilt oynamak ya da oynamamak; nasil olsa biri aygitin deligine bir yirmibeslik atacak. Her gün ayni yemegi yemekle kararli bir hareket yaptigini sanabilirsin. Ne var ki reddedisin ise yaramaz. Yansizligin hiçbir anlam tasimaz. Cansizligin öfken kadar abes."
Author: Georges Perec
17. "If everything that is happening in the world is traceable to our inability to understand what is happening in the world.  If there is such a thing as original sin, it's the human capacity to get everything wrong, right from the beginning and all the way up to now, and that's what the old storytellers have been telling us, including the Creek Indians who told this story along with every other tribe on earth."
Author: Gerald Hausman
18. "There's a reason humans peg-out around eighty: prose fatigue. It looks like organ failure or cancer or stroke but it's really just the inability to carry on clambering through the assault course of mundane cause and effect. If we ask Sheila then we can't ask Ron. If I have the kippers now then it's quiche for tea. Four score years is about all the ifs and thens you can take. Dementia's the sane realisation you just can't be doing with all that anymore."
Author: Glen Duncan
19. "«Perché lavorate? Non potreste limitarvi a vivere ed essere contenti? E se vi affaticate solo per potervi affaticare di più, quando troverete la felicità? Voi dite di lavorare per vivere, ma la vita non è fatta di bellezza e canzoni? E se non sopportate fra di voi un cantore, dove vanno i frutti di tanto lavoro? Lavorare senza divertirsi è come fare un viaggio interminabile senza meta. Non sarebbe meglio morire?»"
Author: H.P. Lovecraft

Author: Jamais Cascio
24. "A child's reaction to this type of calamity is twofold and extreme. Not knowing how deeply, powerfully, life drops anchor into its vast sources of recuperation, he is bound to envisage, at once, the very worst; yet at the same time, because of his inability to imagine death, the worst remains totally unreal to him. Gerard went on repeating: "Paul's dying; Paul's going to die"' but he did not believe it. Paul's death would be part of the dream, a dream of snow, of journeying forever."
Author: Jean Cocteau
25. "Raising orchids has taught me this: A plant's inability to adapt to a new climate will always be immediately apparent. You'll try a new soil and snip off dead parts from the leaves, maybe try fertilizer. But one day you're going to walk in and find your beautiful orchid slumped over and hugging the earth whence it came."
Author: Karen White
26. "Sustainability is now a big baggy sack in which people throw all kinds of old ideas, hot air and dodgy activities in order to be able to greenwash their products and feel good."
Author: Kevin McCloud
27. "Dwayne, hepsi de motelde kalan, Sanat Senligine gelmis olan seçkin ziyeretçilerden bazilarinin kokteyl salonuna gelecegini umuyordu. Onlarla konusmak, eger yapabilirse, yasam üzerine daha önce hiç duymadigi bazi gerçekleri bilip bilmediklerini ögrenmek istiyordu. Yeni gerçeklerin kendisine getirecegini umdugu seyler sunlardi. Güçlüklerine gülüp geçme, yasamaya devam etme ve onu Midland Bölgesi Genel Hastanesinin Kuzey Kanadindan, deliler hastanesinden uzak tutabilme gücünü kazanabilme.Vonnegut, Kurt. 1973. Sampiyonlarin Kahvaltisi, sf 208."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

29. "E mentre le lancette scattano, qualcuno ha gli occhi chiusi. Non è ancora il suo attimo, ma presto il momento verrà. Di luci abbaglianti si illuminerà nuovamente il ponte. Di note sognanti si riempirà il pentagramma.Dall'altra parte c'è ancora una strada. Un palcoscenico pronto, perché riprenda a suonare l'orchestra.Dall'altra parte splende il sole.Dall'altra parte.E' iniziata la traccia nascosta del disco.L'interminabile silenzio è finito."
Author: Leonardo Patrignani

Author: Ludwig Von Mises
31. "Class warfare or soaking the so-called rich may make for good populist demagoguery and serve the political ends of the governing masterminds, but it does nothing to solve the grave realities of the federal government's insatiable appetite for spending and its inability to reform itself."
Author: Mark R. Levin

Author: Ralph Merkle
35. "Liberation technology creates wealth, and open-source technology creates wealth. In both instances the 'center of gravity' for dramatic change toward resilience and sustainability is the human brain mass of five billion poor--the one billion rich have failed to 'scale.' The human brain is the one unlimited resource we have on Earth."
Author: Robert David Steele
36. "Depression is the inability to construct a future."
Author: Rollo May
37. "...reigning Miss Predictability," Steph said, "proudly representing the fine state of Utah.""My inability to be spontaneous is part of my charm.""It's true. You wouldn't be you otherwise."
Author: Sara Zarr
38. "I had uncovered a widely held but overlooked attachment: our attachment to the view that every problem must have a solution. We delude ourselves that we can think our way out of a problem or we see it as a matter of finding the right person to advise us. We become beggars for our problems, asking numerous people for an opinion. So often, we refuse to relax until a problem is fixed, only to discover our inability to relax was most of the problem."
Author: Sarah Napthali
39. "If you're not comfortable enough with yourself or with your own truth when entering a relationship, then you're not ready for that relationship. Don't make the other person suffer for your own lack of integrity or inability to embrace the truths of your life."

Author: Steven Redhead
41. "I marvel at how good I was before I met him, how I lived molded to the smallest space possible, my days the size of little beads that passed without passion through my fingers. So few people know what they're capable of. At forty-two I'd never done anything that took my own breath away, and I suppose now that was part of the problem - my chronic inability to astonish myself."
Author: Sue Monk Kidd
42. "I started to feel that nagging sense of shame again, an acute awareness of my own inability to share in his [my grandfather's] optimism."
Author: Téa Obreht
43. "People rely on intelligence to solve problems, and they are naturally baffled when comprehension proves impotent to effect emotional change. To the neocortical brain, rich in the power of abstractions, understanding makes all the difference, but it doesn't count for much in the neural systems that evolved before understanding existed. Ideas bounce like so many peas off the sturdy incomprehension of the limbic and reptilian brains. The dogged implicitness of emotional knowledge, its relentless unreasoning force, prevents logic from granting salvation just as it precludes self-help books from helping. The sheer volume and variety of self-help paraphernalia testify at once to the vastness of the appetite they address and their inability to satisfy it. (118)"
Author: Thomas Lewis
44. "Human race had never planned to show up in this universe.I wonder whether current human efforts are relevant to its sustainability."
Author: Toba Beta
45. "For twenty-five years I've been speaking and writing in defense of your right to happiness in this world, condemning your inability to take what is your due, to secure what you won in bloody battles on the barricades of Paris and Vienna, in the American Civil War, in the Russian Revolution. Your Paris ended with Petain and Laval, your Vienna with Hitler, your Russia with Stalin, and your America may well end in the rule of the Ku Klux Klan! You've been more successful in winning your freedom than in securing it for yourself and others. This I knew long ago. What I did not understand was why time and again, after fighting your way out of a swamp, you sank into a worse one. Then groping and cautiously looking about me, I gradually found out what has enslaved you: YOUR SLAVE DRIVER IS YOU YOURSELF. No one is to blame for your slavery but you yourself. No one else, I say!"
Author: Wilhelm Reich
46. "I know now that what makes a fool is an inability to take even his own good advice."
Author: William Faulkner
47. "Our present time is indeed a criticizing and critical time, hovering between the wish, and the inability to believe. Our complaints are like arrows shot up into the air at no target: and with no purpose they only fall back upon our own heads and destroy ourselves."
Author: William Temple
48. "Some of us give up on life with only a resigned sigh. Others fight a little, then lose hope. Still others-and I am one of those-never give up. We fight and fight and fight. We fight no matter the cost of battle, the losses we take, the improbability of success. We fight to the very end. It's not a question of courage. It's something constitutional, an inability to let go."
Author: Yann Martel
49. "That kind of inability to improve is really very rare. That kind of consistency is miraculous, in a way."
Author: Zadie Smith
50. "I could feel Monika nudging me furiously at this point, but I refused to look at her. I wasn't feeling particularly reverent about my mother's deadness, or about the vicar, but I do despise that ghastly, ‘You've got to laugh, haven't you?' approach to religious occasions. As a young man, I often goaded my believing friends with crudely logical questions about God. But as the years have passed, I have found myself hankering more and more for a little cosy voodoo in my life. Increasingly, I regard my atheism as a regrettable limitation. It seems to me that my lack of faith is not, as I once thought, a triumph of the rational mind, but rather, a failure of the imagination - an inability to tolerate mystery: a species, in fact, of neurosis. There is no chance of my being converted, of course - it is far too late for that. But I wish it wasn't."
Author: Zoë Heller
