1. "We are certainly influenced by role models, and if we are surrounded by images of beautiful rich people, we will start to think that to be beautiful and rich is very important - just as in the Middle Ages, people were surrounded by images of religious piety."
Author: Alain De Botton
2. "Lai ieraudzitu, attalinieties. Lai saprastu, domajiet nakti. Lai nepazaudetu, nepiesavinieties. Lai netraucetu, pacelieties augstak. Esiet atklati, sastopieties pec izdarita darba, nenesiet lidzi tukšas udens kruzes, jutiet ka zila lode rote, un skatieties uz saules pusi. Tikai neaizmirstiet, ka ari meness ir skaists, kaut ari spid ar atstarotu gaismu. Esiet!"
Author: Alberts Bels
3. "I am amazed at the heart of man: It possesses the substance of wisdom as well as the opposites contrary to it ... for if hope arises in it, it is brought low by covetousness: and if covetousness is aroused in it, greed destroys it. If despair possesses it, self piety kills it: and if it is seized by anger, this is intensified by rage. If it is blessed with contentment, then it forgets to be careful; and if it is filled with fear, then it becomes preoccupied with being cautious. If it feels secure , then it is overcome by vain hopes; and if it is given wealth, then its independence makes it extravagant. If want strikes it, then it is smitten by anxiety. If it is weakened by hunger, then it gives way to exhaustion; and if it goes too far in satisfying its appetites, then its inner becomes clogged up. So all its shortcomings are harmful to it, and all its excesses corrupt it."
Author: Ali
4. "For why in your calamities do you complain of Christianity, unless because you desire to enjoy your luxurious license unrestrained, and to lead an abandoned and profligate life without the interruption of any uneasiness or disaster? For certainly your desire for peace, and prosperity, and plenty is not prompted by any purpose of using these blessings honestly, that is to say, with moderation, sobriety, temperance, and piety; for your purpose rather is to run riot in an endless variety of sottish pleasures, and thus to generate from your prosperity a moral pestilence which will prove a thousandfold more disastrous than the fiercest enemies."
Author: Augustine Of Hippo
5. "They who dwell within the Tabernacle of God, and are established upon the seats of everlasting glory, will refuse, though they be dying of hunger, to stretch their hands, and seize unlawfully the property of their neighbour, however vile and worthless he may be. The purpose of the one true God in manifesting Himself is to summon all mankind to truthfulness and sincerity, to piety and trustworthiness, to resignation and submissiveness to the will of God, to forbearance and kindliness, to uprightness and wisdom. His object is to array every man with the mantle of a saintly character, and to adorn him with the ornament of holy and goodly deeds...."
Author: Bahá'u'lláh
6. "Having thus acknowledged what I owe those who have aided and approved me, I turn to another class; a small one, so far as I know, but not, therefore, to be overlooked. I mean the timorous or carping few who doubt the tendency of such books as "Jane Eyre:" in whose eyes whatever is unusual is wrong; whose ears detect in each protest against bigotry—that parent of crime—an insult to piety, that regent of God on earth. I would suggest to such doubters certain obvious distinctions; I would remind them of certain simple truths."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
7. "Luther had passed many a white church in his day, heard them singing their hymns and chanting their "Amens" and seen them gather on a porch or two afterward with their lemonade and piety, but he knew if he ever showed up on their steps, starving or injured, the only response he'd get to a plea for human kindness would be the amen of a shotgun pointed in his face."
Author: Dennis Lehane
8. "La sincerità è sintetica, a volte telegrafica, e perciò spietata."
Author: Diego De Silva
9. "In cima alla via Guénégaud, venendo dalla strada lungo la Senna, si trova il passaggio del Ponte Nuovo, una specie di corridoio stretto e oscuro che va dalla via Mazarino alla via della Senna. Quel passaggio ha, al massimo, trenta passi di lunghezza e due di larghezza; è selciato di pietre giallastre, consunte, sconnesse, che trasudano sempre un'acre umidità; la vetrata che lo ricopre, tagliata ad angolo retto, è nera di sporcizia.Nei bei giorni d'estate, quando un ardente sole incendia le vie, un chiarore biancastro cade dai vetri sporchi e si trascina miseramente nel passaggio. Nei brutti giorni d'inverno, nelle mattinate di nebbia, i vetri gettano soltanto oscurità sulle pietre viscide, oscurità sporca e ignobile."
Author: Émile Zola
10. "But he alone having reached our deep corruption, he alone having taken upon himself our labors, he alone having suffered the punishments due for our impieties, having recovered us who were not half dead merely, but were already in tombs and sepulchers, and altogether foul and offensive, saves us, both anciently and now, by his beneficent zeal, beyond the expectation of any one, even of ourselves, and imparts liberally of the Father's benefits—he who is the giver of life and light, our great Physician and King and Lord, the Christ of God."
Author: Eusebius
11. "O! I must tell you that I have fallen in love with a gentleman whom I have lately come acquainted with: he is about 60 or 70—has... O! I must tell you that I have fallen in love with a gentleman whom I have lately come acquainted with: he is about 60 or 70—has the misfortune to be humpbacked, crooked legged, and rather deformed in his face.—But, in sober sadness, I am delighted with the Dean of Coleraine, whose picture this is, and which I have very lately read. The piety, the zeal, the humanity, goodness and humility of this charming old man have won my heart. Ah! who will not envy him the invaluable treasure!"
Author: Fanny Burney
12. "–Solo tienes dos alternativas: O te enfrentas a ella o la olvidas del todo y para siempre.Alex hace chocar su vaso de whiskey con el de Pietro.–La primera solución es mejor. En cuanto a la segunda, olvidarla, necesitaría más de una vida. Jamás olvidaré a Niki."
Author: Federico Moccia
13. "Stând printre oameni te dezveti de oameni: prea vrea sa iasa fiecare la vedere — si-atunci la ce-ti mai pot sluji ochii patrunzatori, scurmând în zare? Chiar când cu totii ma nesocoteau, eu ca nebunul îi crutam mai mult pe ei decât pe mine: eram obisnuit sa fiu cu mine însumi aspru si-adeseori ma razbunam pe mine pentru aceasta-ngaduinta fata de ei. Piscat de muste veninoase si gaurit, asemeni unei pietre, de picaturile de rautate, asa-mi duceam viata printre ei si cautam sa ma conving zicându-mi: «Nevinovat este nimicul de propria-i nimicnicie.»"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
14. "My friends, ask gladness from God. Be glad as children, as birds in the sky. And let man's sin not disturb you in your efforts, do not feat that it will dampen your endeavor and keep it from being fulfilled, do not say, "Sin is strong, impiety is strong, the bad environment is strong, and we are lonely and powerless, the bad environment will dampen us and keep our good endeavor from being fulfilled." Flee from such despondency, my children! There is only one salvation for you: take yourself up, and make yourself responsible for the sins of men."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
15. "Rutina yra sudaryta iš ketvirtadienio vakaro pietu, fotosesiju savaites, trumpu draugišku žinuciu internete, naujos gražios mergaites, batu, nemiegotu naktu – galiausiai nebelieka laiko gyventi."
Author: Gabija Grušaite
16. "Dorothea, with all her eagerness to know the truths of life, retained very childlike ideas about marriage. She felt sure that she would have accepted the judicious Hooker, if she had been born in time to save him from that wretched mistake he made in matrimony;or John Milton when his blindness had come on; or any of the other great men whose odd habits it would have been glorious piety to endure; but an amiable handsome baronet, who said "Exactly" to her remarks even when she expressed uncertainty,--how could he affect her as a lover? The really delightful marriage must be that where your husband was a sort of father, and could teach you even Hebrew, if you wished it."
Author: George Eliot
17. "E tu, cui già dal cominciar degli anni sempre onorata invoco, bella Morte, pietosa tu sola al mondo dei terreni affanni[…] chiudi alla luce omai questi occhi tristi […] nel mio sangue innocente non ricolmar di lode, non benedir, com'usa per antica viltà l'umana gente"
Author: Giacomo Leopardi
18. "Kitapus pieveles juodavo veja užstojanti pušu giraite, iš už kurios atsklisdavo bangu muša. Nuožmiu Ramiojo vandenyno bangu. Jos oše sodriais ir niuriais balsais it daugybe susispietusiu sielu, šnabždanciu kiekviena savo istorijas. Ir atrode, kad prisideti prie šio choro ir papasakoti kitu istoriju trokšta dar daugiau sielu."
Author: Haruki Murakami
19. "He had in his Bronx apartment a lodger less learned than himself, and much fiercer in piety. One day when we were studying the laws of repentance together, the lodger burst from his room. "What!" he said. "The atheists guzzles his whiskey and eats pork and wallows with women all his life long, and then repents the day before he dies and stands guiltless? While I spend a lifetime trying to please God?" My grandfather pointed to the book. "So it is written," he said gently.—"Written!" the lodger roared. "There are books and there are books." And he slammed back into his room.The lodger's outrage seemed highly logical. My grandfather pointed out afterward that cancelling the past does not turn it into a record of achievement. It leaves it blank, a waste of spilled years. A man had better return, he said, while time remains to write a life worth scanning. And since no man knows his death day, the time to get a grip on his life is the first hour when the impulse strikes him."
Author: Herman Wouk
20. "Ak, cik ta smalka lieta - mokas.Kas var tik smalki aplest!Tavus matus aptit sev ap rokuun lidz kliedziena robežai paplest.Sapes darit, sapes darit.Starp nopietnibu un joku.Pamilet tevi un darit pari,tavus matus aptit ap roku.Ne, kapec piedošanu lugties!Ta gribas glaudit un kost.Pamilet tevi, pamilet teviun zemear spekuspiest nost."
Author: Imants Ziedonis
21. "Un, kad es paskatos uz rietiem, kads roku man uz pleca liek : " Mums šaja dzive visa pietiek, mums tikai laika nepietiek."
Author: Imants Ziedonis
22. "Surely it wasn't possible that Vin diPietro was the first assignment."Hello?" DiPietro waved. "You in there?"Nah, Jim thought. Can't be. That would be above and beyond any call of duty.Over the guy's shoulder, the commercial that was on the TV suddenly showed a price of $49.99-no, $29.99, with a little red arrow that ... considering where Vin was standing, poined right at his head. "Sh*t, no" Jim muttered. This was the guy? On the Tv screen, some woman in a pink bathrobe smiled up at the camera and mouthed, Yes, it is!"
Author: J.R. Ward
23. "Sempre,sempre le strade vanno avanti,su rocce e sotto piante, a costeggiareantri che di ogni luce son mancanti,lungo ruscelli che non vanno al mare,sopra la neve che d'inverno cade,in mezzo ai fiori felici dell'estate,sopra la pietra e prati di rugiadesotto montagne di lune inondate.Sempre,sempre le strade vanno avantisotto le nubi e la volta stellata,ma i piedi incerti,nel cammino errantivolgono infine alla dimora amata.Gli occhi che han visto spade e fiamme ardentied in sale di pietra orrori ignoti,guardano infine i pascoli ridentie gli alberi ed i colli tanto noti"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
24. "I believe in order, tenderness, and piety."
Author: Jack Kerouac
25. "An abyss of fortune or of temperament sundered him from them. His mind seemed older than theirs: it shone coldly on their strifes and happiness and regrets like a moon upon a younger earth. No life or youth stirred in him as it had stirred in them. He had known neither the pleasure of companionship with others nor the vigour of rude male health nor filial piety. Nothing stirred within his soul but a cold and cruel and loveless lust. His childhood was dead or lost and with it his soul capable of simple joys and he was drifting amid life like the barren shell of the moon."
Author: James Joyce
26. "We are born in this cemetery, but must not despair.-Piet Soron, 1847"
Author: Jesse Ball
27. "Per il candore e la semplicità della sua vita, c'è chi lo giudica un angelo; è una pietosa esagerazione, poiché non c'è uomo che sia esente da colpa."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
28. "He was very religious; he believed that he had a secret pact with God which exempted him from doing good in exchange for prayers and piety."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
29. "La vida és ben rara, un arranjament misteriós de lògica despietada per una finalitat fútil. El màxim que se'n pot esperar és un coneixement de tu mateix, que arriba massa tard, i una collita de retrets inextingibles."
Author: Joseph Conrad
30. "Latvija ir ka šampanieša pudele, kura ilgi – ko domajat? – septini simti gadu – gulejusi tumša pagraba un kuru piepeši attaisijis neuzmanigais Laiks. Daudz ir izgajis griestos un daudz uz gridas, bet trauka vel pietiek, lai mes noreibtu, jo vins ir vecs un labs.Karlis Skalbe"
Author: Kārlis Skalbe
31. "Simple, sincere people seldom speak much of their piety; it shows itself in acts rather than words, and has more influence than homilies or protestations."
Author: Louisa May Alcott
32. "The moving finger writes, and having written moves on. Nor all thy piety nor all thy wit, can cancel half a line of it."

Author: Rainis
36. "Ma l'amore che Hyde prova nei confronti della vita è stupendo; dirò di più: ogniqualvolta io, che solo a pensarlo mi sento venir meno e sento il sangue farsi ghiaccio, ricordo l'abiezione e la passione che lo lega alla vita, quando mi rendo conto di quanto tema il potere che io ho di recidere quel suo legame a essa attraverso il suicidio, sento, nel profondo del mio cuore, di avere pietà per lui."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
37. "Once it was the fashion to represent villages as places inhabited by laughable, livable simpletons, unspotted by the worldliness of city life, though occasionally shrewd in rural concerns. Later it was the popular thing to show villages as rotten with vice, and especially such sexual vice...incest, sodomy, bestiality, sadism, and masochism were supposed to rage behind lace curtains and in the haylofts, while a rigid piety was professed in the streets."
Author: Robertson Davies
38. "The word "religion" has been hi-jacked and debased by the priests of faiths like these, until now it has become a dirty word amongst intelligent, right-thinking people in the Western world. The word "religion" springs from roots meaning piety, the Latin religio, the opposite idea to negligens, negligent, uncaring, unaware. It also springs from a root meaning to join together things that are separate, which in fact is the same meaning as the word "yoga" (compare the English word yoke, which ties oxen together, for example). So religion is a word which describes the process of becoming aware and unified, of joining together all things which are diverse; it is the union of body and spirit, self and not-self, human and god."
Author: Rodney Orpheus

41. "I sighed, sinking back, head filling with pleasant images; pictures Pietr floated to the surface. Kisses scorched along my face and neck. "Pietr...."There was a growl, and I felt fingers at the waistband of my jeans. The button opened and a hand traced along the top of my underpants."No," I said. The kissing resumed, harder. "Jessica." The word rumbled in someone's throat. Not Pietr's. To him, I was Jess."No," I insisted, trying to pry my eyes open. Something was wrong....Not Pietr... I pushed at the chest above me, my eyelids stinging as I willed them apart."Relax..." a voice said, lips dragging along the cornerof my jaw, filling my head with honey, sticky and sweet...."
Author: Shannon Delany
42. "He rrraped herrr," the beast within him shrieked from deep in his gut, shaking everything but my resolve.Pietr stepped back, putting his hands up. "Tear him apart," he agreed."Shit, Pietr!" I snapped. "It's murder!""Justifiable homicide," Pietr returned."
Author: Shannon Delany
43. "Yes. Da, I corrected."Say it again.""What?"His voice grew husky as he repeated his request. "Say yes - in Russian - again."I blushed. "Da", I whispered. "Will you teach me more Russian, Pietr?""Mm, only the important words," he promised.I bit back my request for the three most important words to me. "What words would you teach me?""Pocelujte menyah.""What's that mean?"He groaned. "Repeat it tonight and perhaps I will show you."
Author: Shannon Delany

Author: Sigitas Parulskis
45. "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves."
Author: The Prophet Muḥammad
46. "...the people at the top know what they have to do to stay there, and in a pinch they can easily overlook the sweaty piety of the new Republican masses, the social conservatives who raise their voices in praise of Jesus but cast their votes for Caesar."
Author: Thomas Frank
47. "Very well. He'd lighten up. As a matter of fact, he felt as light as the bubbly froth that flew from the lips of the waves. Whatever else his long, unprecedented life might have been, it had been fun. Fun! If others should find that appraisal shallow, frivolous, so be it. To him, it seemed now to largely have been some form of play. And he vowed that in the future he would strive to keep that sense of play more in mind, for he'd grown convinced that play--more than piety, more than charity or vigilance--was what allowed human beings to transcend evil."
Author: Tom Robbins
48. "There are two men in Tolstoy. He is a mystic and he is also a realist. He is addicted to the practice of a pietism that for all its sincerity is nothing if not vague and sentimental; and he is the most acute and dispassionate of observers, the most profound and earnest student of character and emotion."
Author: William Ernest Henley
49. "Dost thou not suspect my place? Dost thou not suspect my years? O that he were here to write me down an ass! But masters, remember that I am an ass. Though it be not written down, yet forget not that I am an ass. No, thou villain, thou art full of piety, as shall be proved upon thee by good witness. I am a wise fellow, and which is more, an officer, and which is more, a householder, and which is more, as pretty a piece of flesh as any is in Messina, and one that knows the law, go to . . . and one that hath two gowns, and everything handsome about him. Bring him away. O that I had been writ down an ass!"
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "EPILOGODetto da PROSPERO.Ora i miei incantesimi si sono tutti spenti,la forza che possiedo è solo mia, ed è poca.Ora sta a voi tenermi qui confinato o mandarmi a Napoli.Poiché ho riavuto il Ducato e perdonato il traditore,Non fatemi rimanere col vostro potere in quest'isola nuda,ma scioglietemi da ogni legame con mani generose.Il vostro fiato gentile colmi le mie velealtrimenti fallisce Il mio progetto che era di dar piacere.Ora mi mancano spiriti da comandare,arte per incantare,e la mia fine è la disperazione,a meno che non sia salvato dalla preghieraChe va tanto a fondo da vincere la pietà e liberare dal peccato.Come voi per ogni colpa implorate il perdono,Così la vostra indulgenza metta me in libertà."
Author: William Shakespeare
