1. "The pattern of a newspaperman's life is like the plot of 'Black Beauty.' Sometimes he finds a kind master who gives him a dry stall and an occasional bran mash in the form of a Christmas bonus, sometimes he falls into the hands of a mean owner who drives him in spite of spavins and expects him to live on potato peelings."
Author: A. J. Liebling

4. "In the land of the rejected, the field is flattened, open to much oppurtunity. Here flourish the weeds and nonstandard quality alike. No one aspires, because there is no pinnacle to reach — just be better than whoever is next to you. It is basic, fundamental, and often rude, with bonus points for creative solution. Hardly ever about who you are, but how you do, it's "run what you brung" not Formula 1."
Author: Alec Mackaye

Çalisan insan, vakti geldiginde son uykusuna rahat yatar ve rahat uyur. Ön plana çikmak, toplumda ileri gelen biri olma konusunda duydugumuz siddetli arzu, bizim henüz olgunlasmadigimizi gösteriyor kanimca, kismen de kendimize saygisizligimizi... Olgunlasmamak ve kendine saygi duymamak, insani dis kosullara bagimli kilar." (Herzen, Suçlu Kim?, sf. 247)"
Author: Alexander Herzen

9. "That woman is a volcano on the point of eruption, with a libido of igneous magma yet the heart of an angel,' he said licking his lips. 'If I had to establish a true parallel, she reminds me of my succulent mulatto girl in Havana, who was very devout and always worshiped her saints. But since, deep down, I'm an old-fashioned gent who doesn't like to take advantage of women, I contend myself with a chaste kiss on the cheek. I'm not in a hurry, you see? All good things must wait. There are yokels out there who think that if they touch a woman's behind and she doesn't complain, they've hooked her. Amateurs. The female heart is a labyrinth of subtleties, too challenging for the uncouth mind of the male racketeer. If you really want to possess a woman, you must think like her, and the first thing to do is win over her soul. The rest, that sweet, soft wrapping that steals away your senses and your virtue, is a bonus"
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

As a running back, if you're the first pick, and you're NFL life expectancy is only 3.5-6 years, your first big contract might not come until three years in - well, you might never get there. They need to get those signing bonuses up front because nothing is guaranteed."
Author: Eric Dickerson
13. "Again and again workers told me that they are under tremendous pressure not to report injuries. The annual bonuses of plant foremen and supervisors are often based in part on the injury rate of their workers. Instead of crating a safer workplace, these bonus schemes encourage slaughterhouse managers to make sure that accidents and injuries go unreported. Missing fingers, broken bones, deep lacerations and amputated limbs are difficult to conceal from authorities. But the dramatic and catastrophic injuries in a slaughterhouse are greatly outnumbered by less visible, though no less debilitating, ailments: torn muscles, slipped disks, pinched nerves."
Author: Eric Schlosser
14. "By establishing a social policy that keeps physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia illegal but recognizes exceptions, we would adopt the correct moral view: the onus of proving that everything had been tried and that the motivation and rationale were convincing would rest on those who wanted to end a life."
Author: Ezekiel Emanuel
15. "Insanlara gönül indirmek, yüreginin kapilarini herkese açik tutmak, liberal bir tavirdir, ama yalnizca liberal. S e ç k i n bir konukseverlige yetkin olan yürekler, siki sikiya çekilmis perdelerinden ve örtülmüs panjurlarindan anlasilirlar: en iyi odalarini bos tutarlar. Neden mi? -"gönül indirmenin" söz konusu o l m a d i g i konuklari bekledikleri için..."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
16. "I agree with Proust in this, he says, that books create their own silences in ways that friends rarely do. And the silence that grows palpable when one has finished a canto of Dante, he says, is quite different from the silence that grows palpable when one has reached the end of Oedipus at Colonus. The most terrible thing that has happened to people today, he says, is that they have grown frightened of silence. Instead of seeking it as a friend and as a source of renewal they now try in every way they can to shut it out... the fear of silence is the fear of loneliness, he says, and the fear of loneliness is the fear of silence. People fear silence, he says, because they have lost the ability to trust the world to bring about renewal. Silence for them means only the recognition that they have been abandoned... How can people find the strength to be happy if they are so terrified of silence?"
Author: Gabriel Josipovici

19. "Time is like a river flowing endlessly through the universe. And if you poled your flatboat in that river you might fight your way against the current and travel upstream into the past. Or go with the flow and rush into the future. This was in a less cynical time before toxic waste dumping and pollution filled the waterway of Chronus with the detritus of empty hours wasted minutes years of repetition and time that has been killed."
Author: Harlan Ellison
20. "Iyinin de, kötünün de bize islemedigi bir durum söz konusu olabilir. O zaman, boslukta kendi kendine çalarak duygularimizi belirten, sessizlik içinde kaybolup giden ezgiler çikaran bir org sebepsiz yere coskulara tutulur, hiçbir melodi yaratmadan sesler çikarmaya baslar. Yoklugun faydasizligina baskaldiran bir ruhun içine düstügü bir çesit çeliskidir bu, müthis bir çeliski. Bilinmez bir yaradan kan bosanmasi gibi, besinsiz kalmis gücümüzün akip gittigi birtakim yorucu oyunlar."
Author: Honoré De Balzac

Author: J.K. Rowling
23. "And then a silver hare, a boar, and a fox soared past Harry, Ron, and Hermione's heads: The dementors fell back before the creatures' approach. Three more people had arrived out of the darkness to stand beside them, their wands outstretched, continuing to cast their Patronuses: Luna, Ernie, and Seamus."That's right," said Luna encouragingly, as if they were back in the Room of Requirement and this was simply spell practice for the D.A. "That's right, Harry... come on, think of something happy...""Something happy?" he said, his voice cracked."We're all still here," she whispered, "we're still fighting. Come on, now..."There was a silver spark, then a wavering light, and then, with the greatest effort it had ever cost him, the stag burst from the end of Harry's wand."
Author: J.K. Rowling

Author: John Salazar

"Yasamak ve üretmek için gerekli olanlari elde etmekten baska insanoglunun en en çok istedigi sey geriye kendisinden bir iz birakmaktir; belki de kendisinin gerçekten var oldugunu ispatlayacak bir kanit birakma pesindedir, bu kaniti bir tahta üzerine, tas üzerine ya da diger insanlarin yasantilari üzerine birakir. Bu derin istek herkes de vardir; tuvalet duvarlarina ayip ifadeler yazan çocuktan kendi imajini insan soyunun zihnine kaziyan Budda'ya kadar Yasam öylesine gerçek disi ki… Var oldugumuz konusunda ciddi kuskularimiz oldugunu ve bunu kanitlamaya çalistigimizi düsünüyorum."

28. "By all means, stay," Anne said. "Have a seat. We'll take care of you next.""Yeah, see, I think someone else is going to be on trial next." Baring my teeth at her in a grin I pulled out my file folder. "I've got some interesting reading here. And I even brought copies for everyone so you don't have to share."A distinguished-looking South American man on the end shook his head. "What is this? Another farce?""No, but bonus points for using a funny word. You really want to read what I have here. Anne, you'll be especially interested, since you have a starring role.""Enough. Rhia—"Reth quickly flicked his wrist at her; her mouth kept moving, but no sound came out. It was one of the most satisfying things I'd ever seen. Sure, that trick had sucked when he used it on me, but I wholly approved of it now."
Author: Kiersten White
29. "It" was continuing. The game was undeniably in progress. A long funeral procession, a crowd of peoplewearing black. A man in a black suit with a somber know-it-all face addressed them, "Oh, ShuyaNanahara and Noriko Nakagawa? You two, that's right, you're a little early. But you did just pass byyour own graves right here. We carved in the number you two share, No. 15. Don't worry, we'reoffering a special bonus."

30. "In life, we are all on the same journey, we are all struggling to get from point A to point B. Different people have different point A originations and B destinations, but the path we travel is the same. If you can take what you have learned; share the experience and shortcuts you've discovered along the way, offer time saving tips and how you finally made it - then you can lighten the load of those who are just beginning on a similar path. Getting paid for it is an added bonus. My hope is that you do not end your journey at "I wrote a book" but rather understand that your book is just the beginning. Imagine the products you can create based on the contents of your book. Imagine the opportunities to share your knowledge with more people by speaking, training, coaching. You have an important message to share and the world is waiting..."
Author: Kytka Hilmar Jezek

'Believe me, Simon, if we had access to a garden hose, I'd be the first to turn it on myself. I feel foul.''Hate to break it to you, Archer, but that feeling is not lying to you,' Simon said with mild relish."
