18. "Musu laisve paciais ja itvirtinanciais veiksmais sukuria tolydžio stiprejancius iprocius, kurie ja pasmaugia, jeigu jos neatnaujina nuolatines pastangos: jos tyko automatizmas. Pati gyviausia mintis sustabareja ja išreiškiancioje formuluoteje. Žodis atsigrežia prieš ideja. Raide nužudo dvasia. Ir netgi liepsningiausias musu entuziazmas, pasireiškiantis išoriniu veiksmu, kartais taip naturaliai pavirsta šaltu savanaudišku išskaiciavimu arba išpuikimu, vienas taip lengvai igija kito forma, jog mes galetume juos supainioti viena su kitu, galetume abejoti savo paciu nuoširdumu, neigti geruma ir meile, jei nežinotume, kad mires dar kuri laika išsaugo gyvojo bruožus."

22. "Eski zamanlari hatirlayin. Perilere layik Büyük Pasta'nin yapildigi zamanlari; sadece kuyruk isirandan korkan ejderhalari, kötü krallari, topraklarinizda gezinen devleri, azalmaya baslayan sövalyeler dönemini. Ve siz elinizde eski ve üzerinde yazilar bulunan bir kiliçla ejderha avlamak zorunda kalirsaniz..Yapraklari agaçtan daha iyi resmeden türden bir ressamsaniz..Yagmurlu, rüzgarli ve gün isiginin da çekip gittigi bir gece, odanizin içinde açan bir sarmasik yapraginin sesini duyarsaniz.. Elinizi beyaz kabuguna dayadiginiz agaç, bir gün, ''Uzaklara git. Rüzgar senin pesinde. Git ve asla dönme'' derse; Üstünüzde koca bir yorgunluk ve yoksunluk duygusuyla kendinize gelircesine etrafa bakip, ''Niye yalniziz?'' diye sorarsiniz; Küçük bir çocuk elinizi sessizce tutup ''Üzgünüm'' diyecektir.¦ J.R.R.

Pueden fabricar ropa que dure para siempre. Prefieren hacer productos baratos ay así todo el mundo tiene que seguir trabajando y fichando y organizándose en siniestros sindicatos y andar dando tumbos mientras las grandes tajadas se las llevan en Washington y Moscú."

24. "Her hand is close to my arm. My options are limited. I can't run away. I can't handle this.I lose myself in food.The rich, wet texture of melting chocolate. The way good aged goat cheese coats your tongue. The silky feel of pasta dough when it's been pressed and rested just enough. How the scent of onions changes, over an hour, from raw to mellow, sharp to sweet, and all that even without tasting. The simplest magic: how heat transforms."

Cuando abra la puerta y me asome a la escalera, sabré que abajo empieza la calle; no el molde ya aceptado, no las casas ya sabidas, no el hotel de enfrente; la calle, la viva floresta donde cada instante puede arrojarse sobre mí como una magnolia, donde las caras van a nacer cuando las mire, cuando avance un poco más, cuando con los codos y las pestañas y las uñas me rompa minuciosamente contra la pasta del ladrillo de cristal, y juegue mi vida mientras avanzo paso a paso para ir a comprar el diario a la esquina."

44. "O Lord, refresh our sensibilities. Give us this day our daily taste. Restore to us soups that spoons will not sink in, and sauces which are never the same twice. Raise up among us stews with more gravy than we have bread to blot it with, and casseroles that put starch and substance in our limp modernity. Take away our fear of fat and make us glad of the oil which ran upon Aaron's beard. Give us pasta with a hundred fillings, and rice in a thousand variations. Above all, give us grace to live as true men - to fast till we come to a refreshed sense of what we have and then to dine gratefully on all that comes to hand. Drive far from us, O Most Bountiful, all creatures of air and darkness; cast out the demons that possess us; deliver us from the fear of calories and the bondage of nutrition; and set us free once more in our own land, where we shall serve Thee as Thou hast blessed us - with the dew of heaven, the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine. Amen."
