5. "It was partly the war, the revolution did the rest. The war was an artificial break in life-- as if life could be put off for a time-- what nonsense! The revolution broke out willy-nilly like a sigh suppressed too long. Everyone was revived, reborn, changed, transformed. You might say that everyone has been through two revolutions-- his own, personal revolution as well as the general one. It seems to me that socialism is the sea, and all these separate streams, these private, individual revolutions, are flowing into it-- the sea of life, the sea of spontaneity. I said life, but I mean life as you see it in a great picture, transformed by genius, creatively enriched. Only now people have decided to experience it not in books and pictures, but in themselves, not as an abstraction but in practice."

7. "Az alsónemuk – elsosorban a bugyi és a melltartó, de az alsószoknya, a harisnyafélék és az „alakformáló" ruhadarabok is – a noi lét speciális darabjai. A tuzoltók overalljának és sisakjának noi megfeleloi. Vagy a bohócok túlméretezett cipojének. A noiség „munkájához" kell. Technikai szempontból szükséges. Úgy értem, minden no más, de legtöbbször szükségünk van a melltartóra, hogy átvészeljünk egy-egy napot – foleg, ha futni kell a busz után, vagy kivágott ruha van rajtunk. Különben elo kell adni azt a musorszámot, amikor az ember a keblébe markolva üget – nehogy a melle olyan hevesen ugráljon, hogy a végén mintha körbe-körbe pörögne, mint egy sztriptíztáncosno pomponja, és akaratlanul is hipnotizálja az arra járókat. Velem már megesett. Elég rossz volt."
Author: Caitlin Moran

I suggest spending less time on trying to change thoughts and more time on the action steps you will take to prove your current thoughts wrong. Once you take consistent, habitual action the thoughts change, spontaneously."
Author: Charles F. Glassman

"My son, you've seen the temporary fireand the eternal fire; you have reachedthe place past which my powers cannot see.I've brought you here through intellect and art;from now on, let your pleasure be your guide;you're past the steep and past the narrow paths.Look at the sun that shines upon your brow; look at the grasses, flowers, and the shrubsborn here, spontaneously, of the earth.Among them, you can rest or walk until the coming of the glad and lovely eyes--those eyes that weeping, sent me to your side.Await no further word or sign from me:your will is free, erect, and whole-- to actagainst that will would be to err: thereforeI crown and miter you over yourself"
Author: Dante Alighieri

18. "Rettento színben van, sárga és fakó, arcán már ott vannak azok az idegen vonások, amiket oly pontosan ismerünk, mert már százszor láttuk. Tulajdonképpen nem is vonások, inkább jegyek. Bore alatt már semmi élet nem lüktet; kiszorították a felszínre, belülrol a halál küszködik egyre kijjebb, a szemén uralkodik is már. Itt fekszik Kemmerich bajtársunk, aki még nemrégen lóhúst sütött, és a gránittölcsérben kuksolt velünk együtt – még o az, és már mégsem o, a képe elmosódott, határozatlanná vált, mint egy fényképlemez, amelyre két fölvételt csináltak. Még a hangja csengése is a hamura emlékeztet."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque

23. "O motorista fez uma curva fechada à esquerda, saiu da pista e entrou numa estradinha de terra, no meio de algumas árvores, parando em seguida. Ele nos jogou para fora do carro e ordenou que o seguíssemos. Obedecemos. Tínhamos uma arma apontada para nosso rosto. Não era a casa de papai, era o fim da linha. Aguardava-me uma morte súbita, violenta, matinal - no dia em que pisei na terra dos meus antepassados. Uma morte não de todo dessemelhante à que eu provocara, não fazia muito tempo. Seria justo, certo? Um carma honesto e quase instantâneo. Eu me perguntava se sairíamos nos jornais ingleses, se minha mãe forneceria fotos nossas."

Author: James Allen
27. "Az ember ilyennek vagy olyannak ítél valakit, azután pont az ellentétét látja meg benne. Eleinte szeret, majd a végén meggyulöl valakit; vagy kezdetben közömbös iránta, késobb pedig már imádja. Sosem lehetünk biztosak benne, ki vagy mi lesz létfontosságú a számunkra, sem abban, hogy kinek vagy minek tulajdonítunk majd jelentoséget. Meggyozodéseink múlandóak és ingatagok, még azok is, amelyeket a legszilárdabbaknak vélünk. Akár az érzelmeink. Nem szabadna bíznunk magunkban."
Author: Javier Marías

'Just testing you,' he said, leaning back in his chair.'To see if I have spontaneously divided into two separate beings?' Michael bit off.'No, of course not,' Colin said with a suspiciously easy grin. 'I can see that quite clearly. I was merely testing your mood.'Michael arched a brow in a most forbidding manner. 'And you found it...?''Rather as usual,' Colin answered, undeterred ... 'To happiness,' Colin said, lifting his glass in the air."
Author: Julia Quinn
31. "• Vivemos no tempo – ele contém-nos e molda-nos – mas nunca senti que o compreendesse muito bem. E não me refiro a teorias sobre o modo como cede, recua e dá meia volta, ou poderá existir algures em versões paralelas. Não, falo do tempo comum, quotidiano, que os relógios de pulso e de parede nos garantem passar regularmente. Existe algo mais plausível do que um ponteiro de segundos? E todavia basta a menor dor ou prazer para nos ensinar a maleabilidade do tempo. Há emoções que o aceleram, há outras que o abrandam. Às vezes parece desaparecer – até ao ponto em que desaparece mesmo, para nunca mais voltar."
Author: Julian Barnes
32. "Basketball is an intricate, high-speed game filled with split-second, spontaneous decisions. But that spontaneity is possible only when everyone first engages in hours of highly repetitive and structured practice--perfecting their shooting, dribbling, and passing and running plays over and over again--and agrees to play a carefully defined role on the court. . . . spontaneity isn't random."
Author: Malcolm Gladwell
33. "We raise our children, especially girls, to ignore their spontaneious reactions-we teach them not to rock the societal boat...By the time she is thirty, the valient little girl's "Ick!"-her tendency to respond, to rock the boat, when someone's actions are really mean, may have been exciese from her behavior, and perhaps from her very mind."

Author: Michael Mandelbaum
36. "It [soccer] would be much more interesting if every so often, the ball spontaneously exploded."
Author: Michelle Madow
37. "What? We feel aesthetic pleasure at a sonata by Beethoven and not at one with the same style and charm if it comes from one of our own contemporaries? Isn't that the height of hypocrisy? So then the sensation of beauty is not spontaneous, spurred by our sensibility, but instead is cerebral, conditioned by our knowing a date?No way around it: historical consciousness is so thoroughly inherent in our perception of art that this anachronism (a Beethoven piece written today) would be spontaneously (that is, without the least hypocrisy) felt to be ridiculous, false, incongruous, even monstrous. Our feeling for continuity is so strong that it enters into the perception of any work of art."
Author: Milan Kundera
38. "Anytime I have an idea, I'll make sure that I put it down so that when we do sit down to write an album, I don't have to dream it all out of thin air. I don't have to be creative on the spur of the moment, or spontaneously artistic. I just take advantage of whenever creativity strikes."
Author: Neil Peart
39. "The State which would provide everything, absorbing everything into itself, would ultimately become a mere bureaucracy incapable of guaranteeing the very thing which the suffering person—every person—needs: namely, loving personal concern. We do not need a State which regulates and controls everything, but a State which, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, generously acknowledges and supports initiatives arising from the different social forces and combines spontaneity with closeness to those in need. The Church is one of those living forces."
Author: Pope Benedict XVI
40. "… in these new days and in these new pages a philosophical tradition of the spontaneity of speculation kind has been rekindled on the sacred isle of Éire, regardless of its creative custodian never having been taught how to freely speculate, how to profoundly question, and how to playfully define. Spontaneity of speculation being synonymous with the philosophical-poetic, the philosophical-poetic with the rural philosopher-poet, and by roundelay the rural philosopher-poet thee with the spontaneity of speculation be. And by the way of the rural what may we say? A philosopher-poet of illimitable space we say. Iohannes Scottus Ériugena the metaphor of old salutes you; salutes your lyrical ear and your skilful strumming of the rippling harp. (Source: Hearing in the Write, Canto 19, Ivy-muffled)"
Author: Richard McSweeney

42. "... é estranho, não é, como não se sabe até que ponto alguém faz parte de nós até esse alguém ser ameaçado? E depois achas que não há possibilidade de sobreviveres se alguma coisa lhes acontece, mas a pare mais assustadora é que, na verdade, sobrevives, tens de sobreviver, com eles ou sem eles. Simplesmente não há maneira de saberes em que te tornarás."
Author: Robin Hobb
43. "The arts, as a reflection of human existence at its highest, have always and spontaneously lived up to this demand of plenitude. No mature style of art in any culture has ever been simple."
Author: Rudolf Arnheim
44. "How do we account for this paradox that the absence of Law universalizes prohibition ... The psychoanalytic name for this obscene injunction for this obscene call, ENJOY, is superego. The problem today is not how to get rid of your inhibitions and to be able to spontaneously enjoy. The problem is how to get rid of this injunction to enjoy. Zizek! (the documentary)"
Author: Slavoj Žižek
45. "There's a temptation in our networked age to think that ideas can be developed by email and iChat. That's crazy. Creativity comes from spontaneous meetings, from random discussions. You run into someone, you ask what they're doing, you say ‘wow,' and soon you're cooking up all sorts of ideas."
Author: Steve Jobs
46. "Nah, walau tiga suku bangsa ini punya kampung sendiri, kampung Cina, kampung Dayak, dan kampung Melayu, kehidupan di Pontianak berjalan damai. Cobalah datang ke salah satu rumah makan terkenal di kota Pontianak, kalian dengan mudah akan menemukan tiga suku ini sibuk berbual, berdebat, lantas tertawa bersama—bahkan saling traktir. "Siapa di sini yang berani bilang Koh Acong bukan penduduk asli Pontianak?" demikian Pak Tua bertanya takzim."

Author: Toba Beta
48. "Soy todo el hombreEl hombre herido por quién sabe quiénPor una flecha perdida del caosHumano terreno desmesuradoSí desmesurado y lo proclamo sin miedoDesmesurado porque no soy burgués ni raza fatigadaSoy bárbaro tal vezDesmesurado enfermoBárbaro limpio de rutinas y caminos marcadosNo acepto vuestras sillas de seguridades cómodasSoy el ángel salvaje que cayó una mañanaEn vuestras plantaciones de preceptorPoetaAntipoetaCultoAnticultoAnimal metafísico cargado de congojasAnimal espontáneo directo sangrando sus problemasSolitario como una paradojaParadoja fatalFlor de contradicciones bailando un fox-trotSobre el sepulcro de DiosSobre el bien y el malSoy un pecho que grita y un cerebro que sangraSoy un temblor de tierraLos sismógrafos señalan mi paso por el mundo."
Author: Vicente Huidobro
49. "Her mighty lakes, like oceans of liquid silver; her mountains, with bright aerial tints; her valleys, teeming with wild fertility; her tremendous cataracts, thundering in their solitudes; her boundless plains, waving with spontaneous verdure; her broad, deep rivers, rolling in solemn silence to the ocean; her trackless forests, where vegetation puts forth all its magnificence; her skies, kindling with the magic of summer clouds and glorious sunshine - no, never need an American look beyond his own country for the sublime and beautiful of natural scenery."
Author: Washington Irving
50. "Igazságos? - mormogta Nagymama. - Jó szó. Anthony, a sérült emberekkel teli sérült világban semmi nincs, ami igazságos. Az igazságszolgáltatás igyekszik igazságos lenni, de úton-útfélen csodöt mond. A kegyelemben és a megbocsátásban szintén nincs soha semmi igazságos. A büntetéssel nem lehet helyreállítani az igazságosat. A bunvallás sem teszi igazságossá a dolgokat. Az élet nem arról szól, hogy megkapod a megfelelo teljesítményért járó igazságos jutalmat. A szerzodések, az ügyvédek, a betegség, a hatalom - ezek egyikét sem érdekli, mi az igazságos. Jobb lenne a halott szavakat kivenni a nyelveitekbol, és helyette élo szavakra összpontosítani, mint az irgalom, kedvesség, megbocsátás és kegyelem. Jó lenne, ha nem foglalkoznál annyit a jogaiddal, és azzal, hogy szerinted mi igazságos."
Author: Wm. Paul Young

Today's Quote

He was discomfited to see how easily men (and women as well) stepped from the train to station platform, from platform to train – with ease, with levity, laughing and talking and greeting each other as though oblivious to the abrupt geographical shifts they were making, and disrespectful of the distance and differences they entered. Many were hatless, their clothes brightly colored. The cases they carried appeared, from the way they handled them, to be feather-light."
