3. "Se vive así, cobijado en un mundo delicado, y uno cree que vive. Entonces lee un libro (Lady Chatterley, por ejemplo), o va de viaje, o habla con Richard, y descubre que no vive, que está simplemente hibernando. Los síntomas de la hibernación se pueden detectar fácilmente. El primero es la inquietud. El segundo síntoma (que llega cuando el estado de hibernación empieza a ser peligroso y podría degenerar en muerte) es la ausencia de placer. Eso es todo. Parece una enfermedad inocua. Monotonía, aburrimiento, muerte. Hay millones de personas que viven (o mueren) así, sin saberlo. Trabajan en oficinas. Tienen coches. Salen al campo con su familia. Educan a sus hijos. Hasta que llega una brusca conmoción: una persona, un libro, una canción... y los despierta, salvándoles de la muerte."

Each thrust stirred her unspeakably. More than just her p#ssy linked with him when he slid into her. A little part of her heart did as well."

Author: Chad Eastham

Und als die Nacht gemalt worden war und die Sterne in grellen Blitzen geboren wurden da verfolgten die Katzen das Schauspiel, und das Licht, das sie sahen, brannte sich auf ewig in ihre Augen.

Cui sa ma închinprin aceste deserturi si cui sa întind mîna prin aceste singuratati, la cine sa ma opresc înaceste evolutii cosmice si unde sa privesc ca la o mîngîiere? Cum se destrama azurul înfantastica mea viziune si cum nu mai ramîne decît un alb cu misterioase chemari! Si în acestdrum cosmic, asemenea unei supreme aventuri, parca-l caut pe Dumnezeu. Dar în infinit nuexista popas. Si astfel, nu-l voi gasi niciodata."
Author: Emil Cioran

"(Ravic speaking of a butterfly caught in the Louvre) In the morning it would search for flowers and life and the light honey of blossoms and would not find them and later it would fall asleep on millennial marble, weakened by then, until the grip of the delicate, tenacious feet loosened and it fell, a thin leaf of premature autumn."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
18. "The core problem isn't the fact that we're lukewarm, halfhearted, or stagnant Christians. The crux of it all is why we are this way, and it is because we have an inaccurate view ofGod.

He knows that He's great and deserves to be the center of our lives."
Author: Francis Chan

22. "It has often been noted that three major revolutions in thought have threatened the idea of human centrality. First, Copernicus demonstrated that Earth was not the center about which all celestial bodies revolved. Next, Darwin showed us that we were not central in the chain of life but, like all other creatures, had evolved from other life-forms. Third, Freud demonstrated that we are not masters in our own house-that much of our behavior is governed by forced outside of our consciousness. There is no doubt that Freud's unacknowledged co-revolutionary was Arthur Schopenhauer, who, long before Freud's birth, had posited that we are governed by deep biological forced and then delude ourselves into thinking that we consciously choose our activities."
Author: Irvin D. Yalom

Un robot debe proteger su propia existencia, hasta donde esta protección no esté en conflicto con la primera o segunda Leyes."
Author: Isaac Asimov

That he was very particular in his eating, she had, by her own unassisted observation, already discovered; but why should he say one thing so positively, and mean another all the while, was most unaccountable. How were people, at that rate, to be understood?"
Author: Jane Austen

28. "--From "A Familiar Preface", 1912(PR,pp,19-20):"At a time when nothing which is not revolutionary in some way or other can expect to attract much attention I have not been revolutionary in my writings. The revolutionary spirit is mighty convenient in this, that it frees one from all scruples as regards ideas. Its hard, absolute optimism is repulsive to my mind by the menace of fanaticism and intolerance it contains. No doubt one should smile at these things;but, imperfect Esthete, I am no better Philosopher."
Author: Joseph Conrad
29. "Anyone who knew Violet well could tell she was thinking hard, because her long hair was tied up in a ribbon to keep it out of her eyes. Violet had a real knack for inventing and building strange devices, so her brain was often filled with images of pulleys, levers, and gears, and she never wanted to be distracted by something as trivial as her hair."
Author: Lemony Snicket
30. "W malej jadalni, tuz obok, ujrzalem ojca, który chodzil od jednej sciany do drugiej. Widac bylo, ze jeszcze nie wypracowal sobie odpowiedniej postawy, ze nie byl do konca gotów na te okolicznosc. Byc moze czekal, az wydarzenia same sie wyklaruja, i ze latwiej mu bedzie wtedy cos postanowic. Trwal tak, i stal jak nad przepascia, niezdecydowany. Ludzie przechodza od jednej sztuki do drugiej. W miedzyczasie sztuka nie jest jeszcze gotowa, a ludzie nie potrafia dobrze jeszcze odróznic jej zarysów, nie znaja ról, jakie maja w niej odegrac, wiec stoja tak, z opuszczonymi rekami, przed tym, co sie dzieje na ich oczach, z instynktem zlozonym jak parasol, poruszajac sie niezbornie, zredukowani do samych siebie, to znaczy, ze zredukowani do nicosci."
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
31. "The way Gansey saw it was this: if you had a special knack for finding things, it meant you owed the world to look."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
32. "Many strong girls have similar stories: They were socially isolated and lonely in adolescence. Smart girls are often the girls most rejected by peers. Their strength is a threat and they are punished for being different. Girls who are unattractive or who don't worry about their appearance are scorned. This isolation is often a blessing because it allows girls to develop a strong sense of self. Girls who are isolated emerge from adolescence more independent and self-sufficient than girls who have been accepted by others. Strong girls may protect themselves by being quiet and guarded so that their rebellion is known by only a few trusted others. They may be cranky and irascible and keep critics at a distance so that only people who love them know what they are up to. They may have the knack of shrugging off the opinions of others or they may use humor to deflect the hostility that comes their way."
Author: Mary Pipher
33. "Nastepnie, zupelnie nie wiadomo dlaczego, znalazl sie na widowni teatru. Pod wyzlacanym sufitem gorzaly krysztalowe zyrandole, a na scianach kinkiety. Wszystko bylo tak, jak powinno byc w niewielkim, ale bogatym teatrze. Byla zaslonieta aksamitna kurtyna scena, na ciemnowisniowym tle kurtyny lsnily niczym gwiazdy powiekszone wizerunki dziesieciorublówek, byla tez budka suflera, a nawet publicznosc."
Author: Mikhail Bulgakov
34. "Kitsch" is a German word born in the middle of the sentimental nineteenth century, and from German is entered all Western languages. Repeated use, however, has obliterated its original metaphysical meaning: kitsch is the absolute denial of shit, in both the literal and figurative sense of the word; kitsch excludes everything from its purview which is essentially unacceptable in human existence."
Author: Milan Kundera
35. "If there is a God, no part of the Bible or Christian doctrine will convince me of his existence half as much as the flavor of a barbecued pork rib. It is in that juicy snack that I can perhaps begin to glean a divine design, because that shit is delicious in a manner that can be accurately described as "heavenly."
Author: Nick Offerman
36. "It is after days ofSoaking in these downpoursThat the land can drink inThe bounty,That the bejeweled trees canAccept nature's offering.While the dewy greens areVery pretty, and theRunning streams make the mostGentle trickling soundsThere is no healing until theWater is absorbed."
Author: Nicole Grace
37. "Feen", erklärte er bereitwillig. "Das versteckte Volk. Die Wesen, die sich gemeinhin am Rande Ihres Gesichtsfelds verbergen und Schabernack mit dieser Welt treiben. Ihre bloße Anwesenheit reicht meistens aus, unsere liebgewonnene Ordnung auf den Kopf zu stellen, denn sehen Sie, unsere Welt ist so voller Beschränkungen! Sie können von einer Fee genauso wenig erwarten, dass sie sich in dieser Welt ausdrückt, wie Sie Monet bitten könnten, mit Kohle und Schmierpapier einen Lilienteich zu malen. Sie prägen sich unserer Wirklichkeit auf wie die Füße eines Wasserläufers, und Kreise wachsen auf ihrem Weg über den Teich, aber Sie erhaschen nie einen Blick auf das Wesen, das sie hinterlässt. Das heißt, bis heute, lieber Freund."
Author: Oliver Plaschka
38. "Rast. Gast sein einmal. Nicht immer selbst seine Wünsche bewirten mit kärglicher Kost. Nicht immer feindlich nach allem fassen, einmal sich alles geschehen lassen und wissen: was geschieht, ist gut."

Author: Robert J. Morgan
40. "Dentro del inmenso océano de la poesía distinguía varias corrientes: maricones, maricas, mariquitas, locas, bujarrones, mariposas, ninfos y filenos. Las dos corrientes mayores, sin embargo, eran la de los maricones y la de los maricas. Walt Whitman, por ejemplo, era un poeta maricón. Pablo Neruda, un poeta marica. William Blake era maricón, sin asomo de duda, y Octavio Paz marica. Borges era fileno, es decir de improviso podía ser maricón y de improviso simplemente asexual. Rubén Darío era una loca, de hecho la reina y el paradigma de las locas. —En nuestra lengua, claro está —aclaró—; en el mundo ancho y ajeno el paradigma sigue siendo Verlaine el Generoso. Una loca, según San Epifanio, estaba más cerca del manicomio florido y de las alucinaciones en carne viva mientras que los maricones y los maricas vagaban sincopadamente de la Ética a la Estética y viceversa."
Author: Roberto Bolaño
41. "I tried to make my mind go blank. La la la la la la la la. 'You can't keep that up forever,' Suki said, with a touch of menace.La la la la la la la. 'Oh, Demos, make her stop."
Author: Sarah Alderson
42. "Mold—William Henry Yale also subscribed to Roosevelt's notions of the ideal American man and of the dangers of "over-civilization," code for effeminacy. The true man, in this worldview, was a rugged individualist, physically fit as well as intellectually cultured, as equally at home leading men into battle or shooting big game on the prairie as chatting with the ladies in the salon."
Author: Scott Anderson
43. "Ihre Blicke trafen sich nur für die Zeitspanne eines Wimpernschlags, aber länger brauchte Noah nicht, um die Gedanken des Killers zu lesen. "Was hast du geglaubt?", las er in Altmanns Augen. "Dass ich ein netter Mensch bin, nur weil ich uns nach Rom geflogen habe? Ich töte. Das ist mein Beruf. Und ihr lebt nur noch, weil euer Tod mir keinen Vorteil bringt."
Author: Sebastian Fietzek
44. "An artist who painted a face was now 'playing with the idea of portraiture,' or 'exploring push-pull aesthetics,' or toying with contradictions like 'menacing-slash-playful,' but he or she was never, ever, just painting a face."
Author: Steve Martin
45. "Obstinacy in a bad cause is but constancy in a good."
Author: Thomas Browne
46. "Who could have thought it could be that way? It never did flash in my mind; yet, tenaciously advancing, he kept making stealth steps towards the unsuspecting victim of conspiracy.Unknown to her, she endeavored to get near without persnicketiness; Once bewildered by the imminent proposal,the ball was in the nets and the celebrations inevitable.To onlookers, the resulting pain of unfaithfulness was aggravating.Friends, only a broken heart cannot fathom why one can flirt with a promise in hand. The preacher would say Vanity of Vanities…"
Author: Trinity Tinashe Masunungure
47. "What was it then? What did it mean? Could things thrust their hands up and grip one; could the blade cut; the fist grasp? Was there no safety? No learning by heart of the ways of the world? No guide, no shelter, but all was miracle, and leaping from the pinnacle of the tower into the air? Could it be, even for elderly people, that this was life?—startling, unexpected, unknown? For one moment she felt that if they both got up, here, now on the lawn, and demanded an explanation, why it was so short, why was it so inexplicable, said it with violence, as two fully equipped human beings from whom nothing should be hid might speak, then, beauty would roll itself up; the space would fill; those empty flourishes would form into shape; if they shouted loud enough Mrs. Ramsay would return. "Mrs. Ramsay!" she said aloud, "Mrs. Ramsay!" The tears ran down her face."
Author: Virginia Woolf
48. "Bleib diesen Tag und diese Nacht mit mir, und du sollst den Ursprung aller Gedichte besitzen,Sollst besitzen das Gut der Erde und der Sonne, (Millionen Sonnen bleiben noch übrig).Sollst fürder Dinge nicht mehr nehmen aus zweiter und dritter Hand, noch sollst du sehen durch die Augen der Toten, noch dich nähren von den Schemen in Büchern,Sollst auch nicht durch meine Augen blicken, noch die Dinge aus meiner Hand nehmen,Sollst nach allen Seiten lauschen und die Dinge klären durch dich selbst.(übersetzt von Franz Blei; Hymnen an die Erde)"
Author: Walt Whitman
49. "Woe betide the leaders now perched on their dizzy pinnacles of triumph if they cast away at the conference table what the soldiers had won on a hundred bloodsoaked battlefields."
Author: Winston Churchill
50. "I," she [the Holy Spirit] opened her hands to include Jesus and Papa, "I am a verb. I am that I am. I will be who I will be. I am a verb! I am alive, dynamic, ever active and moving. I am a being verb. And as my very essence is a verb, I am more attuned to verbs than nouns. Verbs such as confessing, repenting, living, loving, responding, growing, reaping, changing, sowing, running, dancing, singing, and on and on. Humans, on the other hand, have a knack for taking a verb that is alive and full of grace and turning it into a dead noun or principle that reeks of rules. Nouns exist because there is a created universe and physical reality, but the universe is only a mass of nouns, it is dead. Unless 'I am' there are no verbs and verbs are what makes the universe alive."
