3. "For him that stealeth, or borroweth and returneth not, this book from its owner, let it change into a serpent in his hand and rend him. Let him be struck with palsy, and all his members blasted.

Let bookworms gnaw his entrails…and when at last he goeth to his final punishment, let the flames of Hell consume him forever."— Anonymous Curse on Book Theives from the Monaster of San Pedro, Barcelona, Spain"
Author: Anatole Broyard

But you know, a college degree isn't like some cheap used car. There's no warantee. Right, there's no Lemon Law either. Buyer beware! Look, Pedro, I don't want to call security again. Yes, I know they're your cousins. What's that? You'll wash my car for a dollar? Well, I guess that's a good deal. Where's your sponge bucket? What's that? You've got a hose? What do you mean, it's tucked in your pants? Hey Pedro -- no, no, no don't -- aw, Pedro!"

13. "Each person leaves a legacy--a single, small piece of herself, which makes richer each individual life and the collective life of humanity as a whole. But do not despair, for despair is a despicable and bourgeois affectation; we must not allow it. As for what happens next, well, as the Cuban poet Regino Pedroso once said, "como forjamos el hierro, forjaremos días nuevos": as we hammer out iron, we shall hammer out new days."
Author: John Nichols
14. "Mercaderes y charlatanes se hicieron con el control de Europa, llamando a su insidioso evangelio "La Ilustración". El día de la plaga estaba próximo; pero de las cenizas de la humanidad no surgió ningún fénix. El campesino humilde y piadoso, Pedro Labrador, se fue a la ciudad a vender a sus hijos a los señores del Nuevo Sistema para empresas que podemos calificar, en el mejor de los casos, de dudosas. (...) El giroscopio se había ampliado. La Gran Cadena del Sur se había roto como si fuera una serie de clips unidos por algún pobre imbécil; el nuevo destino de Pedro Labrador sería muerte, destrucción, anarquía, progreso, ambición y autosuperación. Iba a ser un destino malévolo: ahora se enfrentaba a la perversión de tener que IR A TRABAJAR."
Author: John Kennedy Toole

Le apreté sus manos en señal de que lo haría; pues ella estaba por morirse y yo en plan de prometerlo todo. «No dejes de ir a visitarlo -me recomendó-. Se llama de otro modo y de este otro. Estoy segura de que le dará gusto conocerte.» Entonces no pude hacer otra cosa sino decirle que así lo haría, y de tanto decírselo se lo seguí diciendo aun después que a mis manos les costó trabajo zafarse de sus manos muertas."
Author: Juan Rulfo

"Pedro, Pedro, é do teu silêncio que eu preciso agora, levante as viseiras, passeie os olhos, solte-lhes as rédeas, mas contenha a força e o recato da família, e o ímpeto áspero da tua língua, pois só no teu silêncio úmido, só nesse concerto esquivo é que reconstituo, por isso molhe os lábios, molhe a boca, molhe os teus dentes cariados, e a sonda que desce para o estômago, encha essa bolsa de couro apertada pelo teu cinto, deixe que o vinho vaze pelos teus poros, só assim é que se cultua o obsceno"

28. "It's Curt Schilling and his bloody sock staring down the Yankees in the Bronx. It's Derek Lowe taking the mound the very next night to complete the most improbable comeback in baseball history—and then seven days later clinching the World Series. It's Pedro Martinez and his six hitless innings of postseason relief against the Indians. Yes, it is also Cy Young and Roger Clemens, and the 192 wins in a Red Sox uniform that they share—the perfect game for Young, the 20 strikeout games for Clemens—but it is also Bill Dinneen clinching the 1903 World Series with a busted, bloody hand, and Jose Santiago shutting down Minnesota with two games left in the season to keep the 1967 Impossible Dream alive, and Jim Lonborg clinching the Impossible Dream the very next day, and Jim Lonborg again, tossing a one-hitter and a three-hitter in the 1967 World Series, and Luis Tiant in the 1975 postseason, shutting out Oakland and Cincinnati in back-to-back starts. They are all winners."
Author: Tucker Elliot

30. "Don Pedro - (...)'In time the savage bull doth bear the yoke.'Benedick - The savage bull may, but if ever the sensible Benedick bear it, pluck off the bull's horns and set them in my forehead, and let me be vildly painted; and in such great letters as they writes, 'Here is good horse for hire', let them signify under my sign, 'Here you may see Benedick the married man."
