1. "Paolo and Francesca were not ideal readers since they confess to Dante that after the first kiss they read no more. Ideal readers would have kissed and then read on."
Author: Alberto Manguel
2. "Abby Von Normal - And I'm like, "Don't change the subject, Kung Pao, what I want to know is if you're ready to spend some up-close and personal time with ninety pounds of barbarian woman-flesh! Sorry, I don't know how much that is in kilos."
Author: Christopher Moore
3. "I own a book,' he thought, delighted (Paolini 291)."
Author: Christopher Paolini
4. "The theory of exodus proposes that the most effective way of opposing capitalism and the liberal state is not through direct confrontation but by means of what Paolo Virno has called "engaged withdrawal,"mass defection by those wishing to create new forms of community. One need only glance at the historical record to confirm that most successful forms of popular resistance have taken precisely this form. They have not involved challenging power head on (this usually leads to being slaughtered, or if not, turning into some—often even uglier—variant of thevery thing one first challenged) but from one or another strategy of slipping away from its grasp, from flight, desertion, the founding of new communities."
Author: David Graeber
5. "Once, walking with him, Paola had stopped and asked him what he was thinking about, and the fact that she was the only person in the world he would not be embarrassed to tell just what it was he had been thinking about at that moment convinced him, though a thousand things had already done so, that this was the woman he wanted to marry, had to marry, would marry."
Author: Donna Leon
6. "Bor era bello da fare male. Il cuore della ragazza saltò un battito quando il suo profumo le raggiunse le narici e inondò la sua mente come una droga. Un accenno di barba disegnava il contorno appuntito del mento e le labbra si schiusero in un ghigno ferino da animale pronto alla caccia.«Ti voglio attenta e pronta. Ti insegnerò a difenderti. Non sono qui per giocare o rivangare il passato. E ora muoviti, non ho tempo da perdere, anzi, non abbiamo tempo da perdere.» Voltandosi e scendendo le scale tre gradini alla volta aggiunse: «Ti aspetto in strada, sono quello figo sulla moto».Le guance di Asia divennero paonazze, mentre stringeva i pugni con intensità fino a sentire il sudore delle mani appiccicarle la pelle. Con un'espressione degna di un drago sputa fuoco, Asia rimase a guardare Bor che usciva di casa. Vomitò un urlo a dir poco agghiacciante che miscelava rabbia e frustrazione."

7. "Blue Boy i ja krenuli smo u potragu za planinom. I našli smo jednu još prije zore. To nije bila baš bogzna kakva planina, prije bi se moglo reci da je to bilo brdo, ali Blue Boy je zacvilio kad ju je vidio.Odnio sam ga do vrha dok je na istoku izlazilo sunce. Ležao je i promatrao me dok sam mu kopao grob. Nije mogao podignuti glavu, ali dao mi je do znanja kako zna; naculio je uši i nije skidao oka s mene.Kad sam završio s kopanjem, sjeo sam na zemlju i stavio njegovu glavu u krilo. Povremeno, kad bi smogao snage, polizao bi me po ruci.Malo kasnije je bez napora izdahnuo i glava mu je klonula preko moje ruke. Sahranio sam ga duboko u zemlji i naslagao teško kamenje na njegov grob. Tako da ima svoj mir.Kad sam stavio zadnji kamen, pomislio sam kako je zahvaljujuci svom dobrom nosu sigurno vec na pola puta natrag u planine.Lako je njemu sustici djeda."
Author: Forrest Carter
8. "Vozac je rekao djedu koliko koštaju karte i dok je djed vrlo pažljivo prebrojavao novac - jer je svjetlo u autobusu bilo preslabo - vozac se okrenuo prema putnicima, digao desnu ruku i rekao: „How!" i prasnuo u smijeh, i svi su prasnuli u smijeh. Tada sam se poceo bolje osjecati znajuci da su prijateljski nastrojeni i ne zamjeraju nam što nismo imali vozne karte.Onda smo pošli prema stražnjem dijelu autobusa i tamo sam vidio jednu bolesnu ženu. Oko ociju joj je bilo neprirodno crnilo, a usne su joj bile jarko crvene kao od krvi. Kad smo prošli pokraj nje, stavila je ruku iznad usta i zavrištala: „Wa...huuu!" Ali sigurno ju je ubrzo prestalo boljeti jer se pocela smijati i svi ostali su se smijali. Covjek koji je sjedio pokraj nje se takoder smijao i pritom se lupao po nozi. Imao je veliku sjajnu kopcu na kravati pa sam znao da su oni bogati i mogu platiti lijecnika ako im je potreban."
Author: Forrest Carter
9. "Prijatelji moji, kao mladici imali smo tezak zivot, mi smo patili od mladosti kao da je to neka teska bolljka. To je dolazilo od veka u koji smo bili baceni, veka ogromnog unutrasnjeg opadanja i raspadanja, koji se sa svima svojim slabostima, pa cak i svojom najboljom snagom suprotstavlja duhu mladosti. Raspadanje, to jest neizvesnost, svojstveno je ovom veku, nista ne stoji na sigurnim nogama i tvrdoj veri u sebe, zivi se za sutra, jer je prekosutra neizvesno. Sve je klizavo i opasno na nasem putu, a uz to se jos otanjio led na kome stojimo, svi osecamo kako dise stravican, topao jug - gde mi jos sada gazimo, doskora niko vise nece moci da stane nogom."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
10. "Kabhi meri yaad aaye to muskara denachahe chaho ya na chaho muskara dena...tum muje aapne sath paoge sahe sukh ho ya dukh...kabhi dukh me ho to aak bar yead kar lena dor k chala joungachahe me kabar par hi kyu na rahu......"
Author: Himangshu Rabha
11. "I jos jednom se javi misao s kojom je sto puta zaspao,nejasna,nikada do kraja domisljena, a uvredljiva i jadna misao: zasto je put do zene tako vijugav i tajan,i zasto on sa svojom slavom i snagom ne moze da ga predje, a prelaze ga svi gori od njega? Svi,samo on, u silnoj i smijesnoj strasti, cio svoj vijek pruza ruke kao u snu. Sta zene traze?"
Author: Ivo Andric
12. "Love makes you weak. It distracts you from the important things. It can make you lose sight of the objective.-Uncle Paolo"
Author: Jessica Khoury
13. "I eat kung pao chicken like it's going out of style, but I'm pretty sure I don't have an Asian cell in my body. I love Toni Morrison novels although I'm not black. I'm straight and I'm happily married. The reason I work here is because I think you deserve that, too."
Author: Jodi Picoult
14. "The past gathered out of the darkness where it stayed, and the dead raised themselves to live before him; and the past and the dead flowed into the present among the alive, so that he had for an intense instant a vision of denseness into which he was compacted and from which he could not escape, and had no wish to escape. Tristan, Iseult the fair, walked before him; Paolo and Francesca whirled in the glowing dark; Helen and bright Paris, their faces bitter with consequence, rose from the gloom. And he was with them in a way that he could never be with his fellows who went from class to class."
Author: John Edward Williams
15. "Odurna je životinjska priroda zvjeri u covjeku, ali kad je ona u cistom obliku, onda je ti s visine svog duševnog života vidiš i prezireš, pa ili pao, ili se održao - ti ostaješ ono što si bio; ali kad se ta ista životinja krije pod tobože estetskim, poetskim ovojem i iziskuje da joj se pokloniš, onda sam nestaješ u njoj i, obožavajuci životinju, ne razlikuješ više dobro od zla. Onda je to užasno."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
16. "It was Don Paolo's birthday and all the people of the village were gathered in the piazza to celebrate him. The band played, the wine flowed, the children danced, and, as he stood for a moment alone under the pergola, a little girl approached the the beloved priest. "But Don Paolo, are you not happy?" she asked him. "Of course I am happy," he assured the little girl. "Why, then, aren't you crying?"
Author: Marlena De Blasi
17. "Otvorio sam knjigu nasumice i našao na pricu o Aleksandru Makedonskom.Car je, prica se tu, dobio na poklon divne posude od stakla. Poklon mu se veoma svidio, a ipak je sve polupao. -Zašto? Zar nije lijepo? -Pitali su ga. -Baš zato-odgovorio bi on. -Toliko su lijepe, da bi mi bilo teško da ih izgubim. A vremenom bi se jedna po jedna razbijala, i ja bih žalio više nego sad."
Author: Meša Selimović
18. "Tanja, ne mogu da vam opišem kako Lenjingrad izgleda danas.Ja sam nekad govorio da je Pariz najlepši na svetu, a sad se stidim.Svaki put kad dodem u Rusiju donecu vam cvece.I kako je naš jedini randevu izgubljen, propao, nema ga,dajem vam rec da cu svoju decu nauciti da mrze rat i da budu dobri ljudi.Drugo, sem votke, sem suza, stvarno ne umem."
Author: Miroslav Antić
19. "Look at yourself! You're a priest. You know damn well that if I were setting out to make a girl at this moment instead of young Paolo, you'd take an entirely different view. You'd disapprove, sure! You'd read me a lecture on fornication and all the rest. But you wouldn't be too unhappy. I'd be normal... according to nature! But I am not made like that. God didn't make me like that. But do I need love the less? Do I need satisfaction less? Have I less right to live in contentment because somewhere along the line the Almighty slipped a cog in creation?... What's your answer to that Meredith? What's your answer for me? Tie a knot in myself and take up badminton and wait till they make me an angel in heaven, where they don't need this sort of thing any more? I'm lonely! I need love like the next man! My sort of love!"
Author: Morris L. West
20. "The suspect had experienced a ballistic interlude earlier in the evening," Miss Pao said, "regrettably not filmed, and relieved himself of excess velocity by means of an ablative technique." (describing a young man who flew off a bicycle at high speed)"
Author: Neal Stephenson
21. "Jako me boli spoznaja da nece imati oca kad budu stariji. Kada placem u kupaonici, nikada ne mislim »necu vidjeti kako rade ovo ili ono«. Mislim samo na djecu koja nece imati oca. Muci me ono što ce izgubiti oni, a ne što cu izgubiti ja. Istina da jedan dio moje tuge odlazi na »necu više nikad...«, ali mnogo veci dio mene tuguje zbog njih. Stalno mi pada na pamet »oni nece... oni nece... oni nece«. Eto to me grize iznutra, kada se prepustim slabosti."
Author: Randy Pausch
22. "Paolo Maldini and John Terry are two of the toughest men I have met on the field."
Author: Ronaldinho
23. "Moja istraživanja trajala su citavu godinu i najzad sam zakljucio da samo reljef boje, znalacki stavljen na platno, može da da oku pravi utisak. To je bio period koji su moji roditelji nazvali „kameno doba". Upotrebljavao sam kamenje da bih dobio, na primer, veoma blistav oblak. Lepio sam kamenje na platno, a zatim ga bojio. Jedan od mojih najvecih uspeha u ovom žanru je bio zalazak sunca sa kao krv crvenim oblacima. Nebo je bilo prepuno kamenja svih dimenzija, od kojih su neki bili veliki kao pesnica. Ova slika je dugo visila na zidu porodicne trpezarije i secam se da nas je cesto, u tišini posle vecere, iznenadivao šum kamena koji bi, odlepivši se sa slike, padao na pod. Moja majka bi prestala da šije, a otac ju je uvek umirivao recima: -Nije ništa, to je samo još jedan kamen pao sa neba našeg deteta."
Author: Salvador Dalí
24. "Paoletta turned to him with a dark face. Chase had never seen her look so foreboding."You'd better watch out, Chase. He's passed over to the evil side."
Author: Stefania Mattana
25. "I know the M-word makes you nervous, but yeah. I'm talking about the big, permanent friendship. A little different from what Joe and Charles had, though. See, I want to be the kind of best friends who make love every night, who share all their darkest secrets and favorite jokes, and maybe even someday make babies together. I know that kind of friendship requires hard work, but you know, I'm pretty good at hard work.~ Tom Paoletti, "The Unsung Hero"
Author: Suzanne Brockmann
26. "Leš što si ga lane zakopao u baštiPušta li vec izdanke? Hoce li procvetati ove godine,Il' mu je nenadna stud leju uništila?"
Author: T.S. Eliot

Some say an army of horsemensome an army on footothers say ships laden for warare the fairest things on earth.But I say the fairest sighton this dark earthis the face of the one you love.Nor is it hard to understand:love has humbled the heartsof the proudest queens.And I would rather see you now stepping over my thresholdthan any soldier greaved in gold or any iron-beaked ship."
