Es esmu paklauts laikam, un laiks ir paklauts man. Es esmu paklauts sabiedribai, un sabiedriba ir paklauta man. Ka rodas pasaules uzskats? Uz šo jautajumu man vel jaatbild sev pašam. Man vajag sagremot pašam sevi, pirms es drikstu kerties pie citiem."

"In endless space countless luminous spheres, round each of which some dozen smaller illuminated ones revolve, hot at the core and covered over with a hard cold crust; on this crust a mouldy film has produced living and knowing beings: this is empirical truth, the real, the world. Yet for a being who thinks, it is a precarious position to stand on one of those numberless spheres freely floating in boundless space, without knowing whence or whither, and to be only one of innumerable similar beings that throng, press, and toil, restlessly and rapidly arising and passing away in beginningless and endless time."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

8. "Se detuvo a medio camino para mirar atrás. De pie y temblando en el agua y no de frío porque no hacía ninguno. No le hables. No la llames. Cuando se acercó, él le tendió la mano y ella la tomó. Era tan pálida en el lago que parecía estar ardiendo. Como una luz fosforescente en un bosque tenebroso. Que ardía sin llama. Como la luna que ardía sin llama. Sus cabellos negros flotaban en el agua alrededor, caían y flotaban en el agua. Ella le rodeó el cuello con su otro brazo y miró hacia la luna en el oeste no le hables no la llames y entonces volvió su rostro hacia él. Más dulce por el hurto de tiempo y carne, más dulce por la traición. Grullas que anidaban y se sostenían sobre una pata entre las cañas de la orilla sur habían sacado sus esbeltos picos de debajo de las alas para vigilar. ¿Me quieres?, preguntó ella. Sí, dijo él. Pronunció su nombre. Dios mío, sí, dijo."

Author: Haruki Murakami

"Así como localizamos en el cuerpo de una persona todas las posibilidades de su vida, el recuerdo de los seres que conoce y a quienes acaba de dejar, o a los que va a unirse, así yo, si al enterarme por Francisca de que la señora de Guermantes iría a pie a almorzar a casa de la princesa de Parma, la veía, a eso de mediodía, bajar de su casa con su traje de raso claro, sobre el cual su rostro era del mismo matiz, como una nube a la puesta del sol, lo que ante mí veía eran todos los placeres del barrio de Saint-Germain contenidos en aquel pequeño volumen como en una concha, entre aquellas bruñidas valvas de sonrosado nácar."
Author: Marcel Proust
22. "Lector se nace, lector se hace, lector se muere. Como el hábito no tiene finalidad práctica, no admite renuncia por abandono ni por desaliento ante el posible competidor.El lector se arrodilla como el arqueólogo, trepa escalera como el restaurador, fortalece músculos con el diccionario de María Moliner, huronea de tomo en tomo. Lee de pie y escarba en librerías, sufriendo la melancólica anemia de su bolsillo, el despiste de los libreros y la necesidad del ángel que lo aliente para desmalezar la selva de los libros chatarra.Lo creíamos sedentario y en realidad es un atleta, comparado con prójimos que sortean estas gimnasias y se solidifican en ángulo recto frente a las pantallas..."
Author: María Elena Walsh
23. "Though blessed with the enviable properties of a mink coat—graceful, unreasonable, and impractical no matter what she was draped over—she was nevertheless one of those people whose personality proved to be the bane of modern mathematicians. She was neither a flat nor solid shape. She showed no symmetry at all. Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics all proved useless. Her Pie Chart was a muddle of arbitrary wedges, her Line Graph, the silhouette of the Alps. And just when one listed her under Chaos Theory—Butterfly Effects, Weather Predictions, Fractals, Bifurcation diagrams and whatnot—she showed up as an equilateral triangle, sometimes even a square."
Author: Marisha Pessl
24. "I had a lot of disasters in the kitchen, even during the long period when I was cooking under my mother's supervision and with the benefit of her experience. I still fail all the time, in particular when I turn to baking. After hundreds of attempts, following dozens of different formulas, I don't think I have ever made what I would consider to be a completely successful pie crust. Disaster is somehow part of the appeal of cooking for me. If that first Velvet Crumb Cake had turned out to be a flop, I don't know if I would have pursued my interest in cooking. But cooking entails stubbornness and a tolerance--maybe even a taste--for last-minute collapse. You have to be able to enjoy the repeated and deliberate following of a more of less lengthy, more or less complicated series of steps whose product is very likely--after all that work, with no warning, right at the end--to curdle, sink, scorch, dry up, congeal, burn, or simply taste bad."
Author: Michael Chabon
25. "The event that will light the way for immigration in North America is the talking picture. The silent film brings nothing but entertainment—a pie in the face, a fop being dragged by a bear out of a department store—all events governed by fate and timing, not language and argument. The tramp never changes the opinion of the policeman. The truncheon swings, the tramp scuttles through a corner window and disturbs the fat lady's ablutions. These comedies are nightmares. The audience emits horrified laughter as Chaplin, blindfolded, rollerskates near the edge of the unbalconied mezzanine. No one shouts to warn him. He cannot talk or listen. North America is still without language, gestures and work and bloodlines are the only currency."
Author: Michael Ondaatje
26. "A crust of bread and a corner to sleep in. A minute to smile and an hour to weep in. A pint of joy to a peck of trouble, And never a laugh but the moans come double. And that is life. A crust and a corner that makes love precious, With a smile to warm and tears to refresh us, And joy seems sweeter when cares come after, And a moan is the finest of foils for laughter. And that is life."
Author: Paul Laurence Dunbar
27. "When I left Merle was wearing a bungalow apron and rolling pie crust. She came to the door wiping her hands on the apron and kissed me on the mouth and began to cry and ran back into the house, leaving the doorway empty [...] I had a funny feeling as I saw the house disappear, as though I had written a poem and it was very good and I had lost it and would never remember it again. (p. 262)"
Author: Raymond Chandler
28. "I'm an excellent pastry chef. My pie crust is better than my Zia Rosa's. Come on back to the kitchen. I'll make a chocolate cream pie before your very eyes. I'll feed a piece of it to you by hand. And by the time I'm done, you're not going to be asking me if I'm gay anymore."She cleared her throat, gaze darting down. "Is that so.""It is," he said. "On your feet. Come on back to the kitchen. I mean it. I'm dead serious. It's pie time. And I am so ready for you."
Author: Shannon McKenna
29. "He gestured toward the rice pudding. "I put cinnamon on it. Cancels out the cholesterol. Read about it on the Men's Health Web site."Her lips twitched. "That's bullshit." She eyed the banana cream pie. "What cheap pop-science justification have you got for that one?"He contemplated the pie. "Well, bananas are good for you. Lots of potassium, which helps you shed water weight, right? And there's no trans fats in the pie crust. I can promise you that.""Yeah?" Her lips pursed, suppressing a smile. "So what is in it?"He grinned wickedly. "Lard," he announced. "Artery clogging, cholesterol-laden pig fat. Hope you're not a vegetarian."
Author: Shannon McKenna
30. "Currently where you are is on a huge globe with a relatively thin crust of stone, containing fire in its bowels, rotating on its own slightly tilted axis at 1,000 miles per hour in an easterly direction while simultaneously traveling in orbit around an enormous ball of burning hydrogen, 93,000,000 miles away at 66,000 miles per hour. That's 66,000 miles per hour, or nineteen miles per second, which is much faster that you've maybe ever imagined, and means that you will be traveling nearly 60,000,000 miles this coming year.Beauty is, you don't have to imagine it, you can feel it instead. And if you want to know what it's like, simply stop. Be still, and in that stillness, whatever you are feeling in your belly: that's it. this is what it feels like to go 66,000 miles per hour while spinning at one thousand."
Author: Stephen Russell
31. "When people pose the question, are you "coxom", Tom Conrad? I like to pose a question back at them: Is J.K. Rowling actually a witch? Is Thomas Harris the no. 1 serial killer in the the US, did Yann Martell really spend a lifetime eating pie?Of course, as far as I know J.K. Rowling is not a witch, but instead is a rather lovely and talented writer. As for that Thomas Harris (equally talented), I very much suspect he isn't actually a serial killer at all, or if he is, he's involved in the biggest case of double bluff… ever! As for Yann Martell, well, as everyone with half a brain knows his book is actually concerned with a mathematical constant, so ignore the dumb pie joke. Hm :/"
