1. "One of the purest souls ever to live on this fallen planet was Nicholas Herman, known as Brother Lawrence. He wrote very little, but what he wrote has seemed to several generations of Christians to be so rare and so beautiful as to deserve a place near the top among the world's great books of devotion. The writings of Brother Lawrence are the ultimate in simplicity; ideas woven like costly threads to make a pattern of great beauty."

Nikolas asked as he cut the tail of the S, a jagged underline."Is this a ritual thing, or are you just a sadist?" she returned, impatient.

We're out of Band-Aids at my house."

Puede que no comas en días, puede que te congeles en un banco de la calle. No importa. Es una prueba de resistencia para saber que puedes hacerlo. Y lo harás.

Cabalgarás la vida hasta la risa perfecta. Es la única batalla que cuenta."

11. "He has a very nice face and style, really," said Mrs. Kenwigs."He certainly has," added Miss Petowker. "There's something in his appearance quite--dear, dear, what's the word again?""What word?" inquired Mr. Lillyvick."Why--dear me, how stupid I am!" replied Miss Petowker, hesitating. "What do you call it when lords break off doorknockers, and beat policemen, and play at coaches with other people's money, and all that sort of thing?""Aristocratic?" suggested the collector."Ah! Aristocratic," replied Miss Petowker; "something very aristocratic about him, isn't there?"The gentlemen held their peace, and smiled at each other, as who should say, "Well! there's no accounting for tastes;" but the ladies resolved unanimously that Nicholas had an aristocratic air, and nobody caring to dispute the position, it was established triumphantly."

The opposition is neatly summed up in Bioy Casares's novel The Adventures of a Photographer in La Plata (1989).

Vive este momento minuto a minuto. Deja que las cosas se arreglen solas"
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
16. "No tempo em que eu tinha amigos, muitas vezes riam de minha mania de escolher sempre os caminhos mais tortuosos: Pergunto-me porque a realidade há de ser simples. A experiência me ensinou que, ao contrário, ela quase nunca é simples, e que quando algo parece extraordinariamente claro, uma ação que aparentemente obedece há uma causa simples, quase sempre há por baixo motivos mais complexos. Um exemplo corriqueiro: as pessoas que dão esmolas. Em geral, considera-se que são mais generosas e melhores do que as que não dão. Permito-me tratar com maior desdém essa teoria simplista. Todo mundo sabe que não se resolve o problema de um mendigo (de um mendigo autêntico) com um peso e um pedaço de pão: resolve-se apenas o problema psicológico do sujeita que compra assim, por quase nada, sua tranquilidade espiritual e seu título de generoso."
Author: Ernesto Sabato

I could fly planes out to deliver me the dope if I wanted to — and that's what I would do. I can't escape."

22. "- Nicholas, daca vrem sa incercam sa reproducem, fie si numai partial, cate ceva despre legile misterioase care guverneaza existenta, atunci trebuie sa stim sa depasim unele din conventiile pe care omul le-a inventat pentru a tine in frau aceste scopuri fundamentale. Asta nu inseamana ca in vietile noastre obisnuite asemenea conventii trebuie ignorate. Nicidecum. Ele sunt fictiuni necesare. Dar in jocul de-a Dumnezeu, noi am pornit de la premiza ca in realitate totul este fictiune si, totusi, nici o fictiune nu este necesara. Zambi: M-ai dacut sa spun mai mlt decat aveam de gand."

"How shall I prepare myself? What if I scream? What if I shit?""What if I dash your brains out? In a no doubt useless bid for peace," Ban countered, dark eyes snapping with amusement. "God's teeth. To the stairs. At once!"

48. "Farei meu relatório como se contasse uma história, pois quando criança aprendi, em meu planeta natal, que a Verdade é uma questão de imaginação. O fato mais concreto pode fraquejar ou triunfar no estilo da narrativa: como a jóia orgânica singular de nossos mares, cujo brilho aumenta quando determinada mulher a usa e, usada por outra, torna-se opaca e perde o valor. Fatos não são mais sólidos, coerentes, perfeitos e reais do que pérolas. Mas ambos são sensíveis."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
