1. "Even papists could not see that a moral evil was detained in the soul through its physical connection with the body; and that it required the dissolution of this physical connection before the moral contagion could be removed."
Author: Adam Clarke
2. "Odkad chrzescijanstwo wnioslo swój wklad w rozwój cywilizacji w Rzymie, zamiast centuriona pojawiajacego sie na polecenie tyrana, aby rzec: "Cesarz pragnie, abys umarl", przybywal legat, który z promiennym usmiechem oznajmial ci polecenie papieza: "Jego Swiatobliwosc pragnie, abys przybyl do niego na uczte"."
Author: Alexandre Dumas
3. "La vi escrita al tramonto, indescifrable.Un pentagrama sobre el campo alzado:y era un millar de pájaros, cubriendode negras notas los tirantes hilos.Se agrupaban en llaves y en acordesen el papiro rosa de la tarde;(y a un golpe de batuta abandonabanla partitura locos de alegría."
Author: Alfonsina Storni
4. "W sportowym sklepie pod kwadratowymi filarami kupilem spory czerwony plecak bez stelarza i upchnalem do niego dwa spiwory. Cienkie, ale innych nie mieli. W pustym, wykafelkowanym na zielono miesnym zaladowalem trzy kilo boczku, pare konserw i kabanosy na okrase i dlatego ze lekkie. W tym sklepie bylo jak w basenie, jak w jakiejs lazni, na srebrnych hakach wisialy bialo-czerwone polcie, a kasa i waga tez byly srebrne. W pierwszym lepszym sklepie z manekinami na wystawie kupilem kilka par grubych skarpet. Siekiere kupilem w sklepie z siekierami. I jeszcze papierosy. A w monopolowym dwie butelki naszego spirytusu. Gdy placilem, wpadly mi w oko malenkie flaszeczki z wyborowa, takie na dwa lyki. Wypchalem sobie nimi kieszenie."
Author: Andrzej Stasiuk
5. "In considering found that the papists did not deny him to be come in the flesh, nor we did not deny him - who then was antichrist? Was the Turk antichrist only?"
Author: Anne Hutchinson
6. "?...minun mielestäni nykyinen teatteri vain pelkkää rutiinia, ennakkoluuloa. Kun esirippu nousee ja nuo suuret kyvyt, pyhän taiteen papit ja papittaret, esittävät kolmiseinäisessä huoneessa iltavalaistuksessa miten ihmiset syövät, juovat, rakastavat, kävelevät, miten kantavat pukuaan, kun he halpahintaisista kuvaelmista ja korulauseista koettavat onkia esiin moraalia — pientä, helppotajuista, kotioloissa tarvittavaa moraalia, kun minulle tuhansien eri muunnosten muodossa tarjotaan aina vain yhtä ja samaa, yhtä ja samaa, yhtä ja samaa — niin minä juoksen pakoon, juoksen pakoon kuin Maupassant Eiffel-tornia, joka pusersi hänen aivojaan lattaudellaan."
Author: Anton Chekhov
7. "Kako je lako biti filozof na papiru i kako je to teško u životu!"
Author: Anton Chekhov
8. "Immuable: Dieu est immuable, c'est-à-dire n'est point susceptible de changer ; cependant nous trouvons dans ses papiers que souvent il a changé de projets, d'amis et même de religion : mais tous ces changements ne peuvent nuire à son immutabilité, ni à celle de ses prêtres immuables, qui jamais ne changent d'avis sur le dessein de mener les laïques par le nez."
Author: Baron D'Holbach
9. "Ulica Krokodyli byla koncesja naszego miasta na rzecz nowoczesnosci i zepsucia wielkomiejskiego. Widocznie nie stac nas bylo na nic innego, jak na papierowa imitacje, jak na fotomontaz zlozony z wycinków zlezalych, zeszlorocznych gazet."
Author: Bruno Schulz
10. "„- Ja nie chce prowadzic interesów. Chce zostac pisarzem.- Ze jak? I co bedziesz jadl, obiboku? Zupe z liter? Enchilade z papieru? Co bedziesz pil? Atrament?"
Author: Carlos Fuentes
11. "Firnis lächelte gütig. "Bücher sind lebendige Wesen", sagte er, "und wenn man ganz in sie eintaucht, dann erwachen sie zum Leben. Und wie die Gedanken, so bekommen auch die Buchstaben Flügel verliehen. Sie lösen sich vom Papier und flattern im Raum herum."
Author: Christoph Marzi
12. "Harvey wasn't interested in the clothes, it was the masks that mesmerized him. They were like snowflakes: no two alike. Some were made of wood and of plastic; some of straw and cloth and papier-mâché. Some were as bright as parrots, others as pale as parchment. Some were so grotesque he was certain they'd been carved by crazy people; others so perfect they looked like the death masks of angels. There were masks of clowns and foxes, masks like skulls decorated with real teeth, and one with carved flames instead of hair."
Author: Clive Barker
13. "—¿Hope? ¿Me prometes algo? —Sí —le digo.—¿Sabes a veces, cuando tu papa te hace llorar? —¿Me prometes que cuando él te haga sentir triste, siempre pensaras en el cielo? —Pero, ¿por qué? —Porque sí. —Vuelve su rostro hacia las estrellas—. El cielo siempre es hermoso. Incluso cuando está oscuro, o lluvioso, o lleno de nubes, aún así es precioso. Es mi favorito, porque sé que si alguna vez me siento perdido, o solo, o asustado, sólo tengo que subir la mirada y el cielo estará allí, sin importar qué… y sé que siempre será hermoso. Es en lo que puedes pensar cuando tu papi te haga sentir triste, para que así no tengas que pensar en él. —Lo prometo —susurro. —Bien —dice él. Luego estira su mano sobre el concreto entre nosotros y envuelve su meñique alrededor del mío."
Author: Colleen Hoover
14. "Often I think boys don't become men. Boys just get papier-mâchéd inside a man's mask. Sometimes you can tell the boy is still in there."
Author: David Mitchell
15. "Sans doute avais-je envie de rendre un hommage à Lucile, de lui offrir un cercueil de papier - car, de tous, il me semble que ce sont les plus beaux - et un destin de personnage."
Author: Delphine De Vigan
16. "De combinatie geel en zwart, godbetert, smaaklozer kan je 't niet bedenken. [...] Bidden wij dus voor alle ouders van een zoontje dat supporteert voor NAC Breda of SK Lierse en zulks kenbaar wil maken via het behangpapier op zijn kamer, zijn kaften, zijn jassen en zijn sjaals. Kleurterreur die z'n sporen moet nalaten op het brein en waar de schoolresultaten van het ventje uiteindelijk bijzonder onder gaan lijden."
Author: Dimitri Verhulst
17. "Ona se osjeca iskljucena iz svega, jer i jest iskljucena iz svega. Drugi idu naprijed penjuci se pritom preko nje. Cini se da je ona jedina prepreka na putu. Šetaci prolaze, a ona ostaje ležati poput odbacena zamašcena papira koji otpuhuju naleti vjetra. Zamašcen papir ne može daleko odletjeti; trune ondje gdje je. A proces raspadanja traje godinama, koje se bezlicno nižu."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
18. "Eu escrevo um caixão de gravetos, uma toca de terra; papiro para untar meus restos mortais. Eu escrevo uma salva de saudade, um funeral de flores; epitáfio para demarcar onde a vida morre em paz. Eu escrevo um esqueleto de cálcio sobre o qual nasço, cresço e morro. Você, antropólogo forense, leia meus ossos e relate em corte marcial os crimes e torturas que a vida e o homem afligiram a minha pessoa."
Author: Filipe Russo
19. "Il dit qu'on est faits l'un pour l'autre, parce qu'il est né avec une fleur et moi un papillon, et que les fleurs et les papillons ont besoin les uns des autres pour survivre."
Author: Gemma Malley
20. "People peep into boxes at moving stereoscopic prints, imagining they're in other worlds, and the crowd around a glassblower wonders whether icicles have formed in summer. Potted trees revive and suddenly look fresh when a florist sprinkles water on them, while papier-mâché turtles hanging out for sale move in the wind and take on souls."
Author: Haruo Shirane
21. "The tears in my pus-filled eyes became a thousand little crystals of ever color. Like stained-glass windows, I thought. God is with you today, Papi! In the midst of nature's monstrous elements, in the wind, the immenseness of the sea, the depth of the waves, the imposing green roof of the bush, you feel your own infinitesimal smallness, and perhaps it's here, without looking for Him, that you find God, that you touch Him with your finger. I had sensed Him at night during the thousands of hours I had spent buried alive in dank dungeons without a ray of sun; I touched Him today in a sun that would devour everything too weak to resist it. I touched God, I felt Him around me, inside me. He even whispered in my ear: "You will suffer; you will suffer more. But this time I am on your side. You will be free. You will, I promise you."
Author: Henri Charrière
22. "He looks around at his guests. All are prepared. A Latin grace; English would be his choice, but he will suit his company. Who cross themselves ostentatiously, in papist style. Who look at him, expectant. He shouts for the waiters. The doors burst open. Sweating men heave the platters to the table. It seems the meat is fresh, in fact not slaughtered yet. It is just a minor breach of etiquette. The company must sit and salivate. The Boleyns are laid at his hand to be carved."
Author: Hilary Mantel
23. "Lieber Paul, wenn ich mich heute nach meinen Wünschen frage, meinen wirklichen Wünschen, dann zögre ich mir Antwort zu geben, ja vielleicht bin ich sogar zur Einsicht gekommen, dass es uns nicht zusteht zu wünschen, dass wir nur ein gewisses Pensum an Arbeit zu erledigen haben, dass, was wir immer tun, ohne Wirkung ist, dass man dennoch zwischen acht Uhr früh und sechs Uhr abends so tun muss, als sei es wichtig, auf ein Blatt Papier einen Beistrich oder einen Doppelpunkt zu setzen. "
Author: Ingeborg Bachmann
24. "Mais comme mes regards tombaient sur le bloc de feuilles blanches, je fus saisi par son aspect et je restai, la plume en l'air, à contempler ce papier éblouissant : comme il était dur et voyant, comme il était présent. Il n'y avait rien en lui que du présent. Les lettres que je venais d'y tracer n'étaient pas encore sèches et déjà elles ne m'appartenaient plus."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
25. "I'm living proof there's safety in numbers. I once evaded enemy agents during Carnival in Rio by hiding inside a large papier-mâché two."
Author: John Alejandro King
26. "Musical instruments in celebrating the praises of God would be no more suitable than the burning of incense, the lighting of lamps, and the restoration of the other shadows of the law. The Papists therefore, have foolishly borrowed, this, as well as many other things, from the Jews. Men who are fond of outward pomp may delight in that noise; but the simplicity which God recommends to us by the apostles is far more pleasing to him. Paul allows us to bless God in the public assembly of the saints, only in a known tongue (1 Corinthians 14:16) What shall we then say of chanting, which fills the ears with nothing but an empty sound?"
Author: John Calvin
27. "I let him run on, this papier-maché Mephistopheles, and it seemed to me that if I tried I could poke my forefinger through him, and would find nothing inside but a little loose dirt, maybe."
Author: Joseph Conrad
28. "How much English do you know? None, Papi said after a moment. Eulalio shook his head. Papi met Eulalio last and liked him least."
Author: Junot Díaz
29. "...adskillige lækkerier, å hittil ukjendte nam-nam i dåser og sølvpapir, fra denne stund av var syltede pærer ikke længer et opspind og et æventyr for familjen Oliver..."
Author: Knut Hamsun
30. "See it was like this when we waltz into this place.A couple of papish cats is doing an Aztec two-stepAnd I says Dad let's cutbut then this dame comes up behind me see and says you and me could really existWow I says Only the next day she has bad teeth and really hates poetry."
Author: Lawrence Ferlinghetti
31. "L'architecture arabe nous donne un enseignement précieux. Elle s'apprécie à la marche, avec le pied : c'est en marchant, en se déplaçant que l'on voit se développer les ordonnances de l'architecture. C'est un principe contraire à l'architecture baroque qui est conçue sur le papier, autour d'un point fixe théorique. Je préfère l'enseignement de l'architecture arabe. Dans cette maison ci, il s'agit d'une véritable promenade architecturale, offrant des aspects constamment variés, inattendus, parfois étonnants."
Author: Le Corbusier
32. "Na jawie snisz z otwartymi oczamiCo dzieje sie miedzy nami ze nie poznalemTego kraju co otwiera ci bramyI dokad nigdy wizy nie dostalemCi przez których przeszla muzyka Zdaja sie lasu galezia co drzyUginajaca sie pod ptakamiAle tyCi których wzrok sie sklada z nieprzeliczonych szlifów liczbyCi którzy zongluja funkcjami mgly Ci których paraboliczny umysl blyska jak lustroHipoteza to ich papieros skreconyAle tyTy milczysz z dlonia przy skroniI nie smiem zapytac cie o nic"
Author: Louis Aragon
33. "Ebbene signor Meis, il destino di Roma è l'identico. I papi ne avevano fatto – a modo loro, s'intende – un'acquasantiera; noi italiani ne abbiamo fatto, a modo nostro, un portacenere."
Author: Luigi Pirandello
34. "I did not worry about what a man or woman personally believed, but the nation's official religion should be outwardly practiced by all its citizens. A religion was a political statement. Being a Calvinist, a papist, a Presbyterian, an Anglican labeled a person's philosophy on education, taxes, poor relief, and other secular things. The nation needed an accepted position on such concerns. Hence the fines for not outwardly conforming to the national church."
Author: Margaret George
35. "In der Fußgängerzone kam Wind auf wie immer Wind aufkommt bei der Suche nach jenem richtigen Ort der sich stets weit entfernt zeigt, die Abfallpapiere am Boden verrutschten, mein Mantel flatterte, und, als wäre dies schon ein Grund mich selbst zu den Dingen zu zählen als wäre dies schon ein Grund blieb ich ungefragt stehen"
Author: Marion Poschmann
36. "But Mather's smile faded as he thought of what other provisions the charter contained. What would the godly say when they learned that the electorate was no longer to be limited to members of the Covenant but broadened to include propertied members of every Christian sect this side of papistry? This was a revolutionary innovation, whose consequences would be incalculable. Hitherto the limitation of the privilege of voting to the elect had been the very corner-stone of theocracy. It had been a wise and human provision designed to keep the faithful in control even when, as had long ago become the case, they were heavily outnumbered by lesser men without the Covenant. God who had not designated the majority of men to salvation surely never intended for the damned to rule. Yet now, under the new charter, it very much looked as if they might."
Author: Mather's
37. "Voles-tu, mon petit papillon." Illium laughed at Galen's instruction to "fly, little butterfly"
Author: Nalini Singh
38. "For my own part,' said Captain Aubrey, 'I have no notion of disliking a man for his beliefs, above all if he was born with them. I find I can get along very well with Jews or even...' The P of Papists was already formed, and the word was obliged to come out as Pindoos."
Author: Patrick O'Brian
39. "No, no era papel. Papiro. Recordé que, según me había explicado una vez papá, los egipcios lo hacían a partir de una planta de río porque nunca habían llegado a inventar el papel. El material era tan grueso y áspero que me pregunté si los pobres egipcios también habían tenido que usar papiro de váter. En ese caso, no me extrañaba que caminasen de lado."
Author: Rick Riordan
40. "They say you can never step into the same river twice. And maybe that's how it was for Papi now, memories shifting and re-forming soundlessly beneath him while the rest of us sat on the shore and watched."
Author: Sarah Ockler
41. "Szalenstwo ma w sobie pewien urok. Wyjsc z domu po chleb i wyjechac do innego miasta, poznac rano dziewczyne i wieczorem wziac z nia slub, zdecydowanym ruchem otworzyc drzwi do ciemnego pokoju, z którego dobiegaja podejrzane dzwieki, wejsc do klatki hipopotama i poklepac go po tlustym zadzie, pojechac do Tajlandii i uprawiac seks bez prezerwatywy, przyjac propozycje tajemniczego nieznajomego i podpisac sie krwia na czystej kartce papieru. Jednym slowem, rzucenie sie na zlamanie karku ku przygodzie to bardzo kuszaca wizja."
Author: Sergei Lukyanenko
42. "Aux jeunes, je dis: regardez autour de vous, vous y trouverez les thèmes qui justifient votre indignation — le traitement faits aux immigrés, aux sans-papiers, aux Roms. Vous trouverez des situations concrètes qui vous amènent à donner cours à une action citoyenne forte. Cherchez et vous trouverez!"
Author: Stéphane Hessel
43. "Artists aren't really people. And I'm actually 40 per cent papier mache."
Author: Steven Morrissey
44. "Des papillons, tout étonnés de vivre, titubent dans l'air."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
45. "Vers 2 heures je me suis bouché les oreilles avec du papier mâché. J'ai arraché une page de Lord Jim, je l'ai ruminée lentement (mauvais goût de l'encre) et me suis collé au fond de l'oreille la littérature de Conrad en pensant que j'allais entendre la mer."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
46. "Au lieu d'être immobile comme il convient à un pied embaumé depuis quatre mille ans, il s'agitait, se contractait et sautillait sur les papiers comme une grenouille effarée."
Author: Théophile Gautier
47. "The minute you land in New Orleans, something wet and dark leaps on you and starts humping you like a swamp dog in heat, and the only way to get that aspect of New Orleans off you is to eat it off. That means beignets and crayfish bisque and jambalaya, it means shrimp remoulade, pecan pie, and red beans with rice, it means elegant pompano au papillote, funky file z'herbes, and raw oysters by the dozen, it means grillades for breakfast, a po' boy with chowchow at bedtime, and tubs of gumbo in between. It is not unusual for a visitor to the city to gain fifteen pounds in a week--yet the alternative is a whole lot worse. If you don't eat day and night, if you don't constantly funnel the indigenous flavors into your bloodstream, then the mystery beast will go right on humping you, and you will feel its sordid presence rubbing against you long after you have left town. In fact, like any sex offender, it can leave permanent psychological scars."
Author: Tom Robbins
48. "Why? Why should the bond between a people and their baseball team be so intense? Fenway Park is a part of it, offering a physical continuum to the bond, not only because Papi can stand in the same batter's box as Teddy Ballgame, but also because a son might sit in the same wooden-slat seat as his father."
Author: Tom Verducci
49. "Finally, in the midst of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November 1863 as Thanksgiving: a day to solemnly acknowledge the sacrifices made for the Union....Shopping was part of the American Dream, too. So in 1939, at the urging of merchants, FDR moved Thanksgiving ahead a week, to lengthen the Christmas shopping season. And there it has remained, a day of national gluttony, retail pageantry, TV football, and remembrance of the Pilgrims, a folk so austere that they regarded Christmas as a corrupt Papist holiday."
Author: Tony Horwitz
50. "To be ultra is to go beyond. is to attack the scepter in the name of the throne, and the miter in the name of the alter; it is to mistreat the thing you support; it is to kick in the traces; is is to cavil at the stake for undercooking heretics; it is to reproach the idol for lack of idolatry; it is to insult through an excess of respect; it is to find to little papistry in the pope; in the king to little royalty, and too much light in the night; it is to be dissatisfied with the albatross, with snow ,with the swan, and the lily for not being white enough; it is to champion things to the point of becoming their enemy, it is to become so pro you become con."
Author: Victor Hugo
