1. "The savagery of the picture strange and alluring, Frank smeared with blood and absolutely at ease. Barbarian, primitive, visceral; if Tony had been given to myth-making, he would have wondered if there could be any more frightening god than one who was simultaneously provider and destroyer."
Author: Aleksandr Voinov
2. "Los primeros cuarenta años de vida nos dan el texto; los treinta siguientes, el comentario."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
3. "We are summoned from the outset to combine as creatures with our Creator, as mortals with immortal, as redeemed sinners with sinless Redeemer. His presence, the interaction between Him and us, must always be the overwhelmingly dominant factor in the life we are to lead within the Body, and any conception of Christian fellowship which does not mean primarily fellowship with Him is out of court."
Author: C.S. Lewis
4. "Incluso ella comprendía que no bastaba con aquello, que cada minuto que Penélope y Julián pasaban juntos les unía más. Hace tiempo que el aya había aprendido a reconocer en sus miradas el desafío y la arrogancia del deseo: una voluntad ciega de ser descubiertos, de que su secreto fuera un escándalo a voces y ya no tuvieran que ocultarse en rincones y desvanes para amarse a tientas. A veces, cuando Jacinta acudía a arropar a Penélope, la muchacha se deshacía en lagrimas y le confesaba sus deseos de huir con Julián, de tomar el primer tren y escapar a donde nadie les conociese."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

6. "The day wore on, and all these bright colours subsided, and assumed a quieter tint, like young hopes softened down by time, or youthful features by degrees resolving into the calm and serenity of age. But they were scarcely less beautiful in their slow decline, than they had been in their prime; for nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy, that we can scarcely mark their progress."
Author: Charles Dickens
7. "Si accostò allo sportello dei biglietti. Per la prima volta, era costretta a rivelare quel che aveva intenzione di fare.- Giardino Zoologico, - disse. Un piccolo biglietto giallo le venne sospinto con indifferenza. - Venti, - disse la donna dietro la lastra di vetro.- E volendo… ritornare? - chiese Rita timidamente.- Allora quaranta, - disse la donna, riprese il biglietto e gliene sospinse un altro dallo sportello.In questo, dunque, si distingueva da tutte le altre del mondo questa città: che per quaranta pfennig teneva in mano due vite diverse."
Author: Christa Wolf
8. "Siempre ahogo mis sensaciones, mis deseos, mis sentimientos, mis miserias y alegrías. Lo suprimo todo, eternamente, porque es menos doloroso dejar de sentir."
Author: Cielo Latini
9. "One reason Elvis mattered, she said, was that in his prime, pop music had still been politically innocent, therefore deeply life-affirming, therefore relevant. By the time he died, most pop songs had become, usually without the conscious intention of those who wrote and sang them, anthems endorsing the values of fascism, which remains the case to this day."
Author: Dean Koontz
10. "Ja sam se, na primer, vec gotovo potpuno privikao na sebe, a opet se neprijatno iznenadim svaki put kad stanem pred ogledalo...Eh...Strašno je kad ostariš, zaista... No, još je strašnije kad ostariš mlad."
Author: Ðorde Balaševic
11. "In conversion you are not attached primarily to an order, nor to an institution, nor a movement, nor a set of beliefs, nor a code of action - you are attached primarily to a Person, and secondarily to these other things."
Author: E. Stanley Jones

Author: Egon Schiele
13. "An irrefutable proof that such single-celled primaeval animals really existed as the direct ancestors of Man, is furnished according to the fundamental law of biogeny by the fact that the human egg is nothing more than a simple cell."
Author: Ernst Haeckel
14. "El pleno derecho de existir sólo lo pueden tener los viejos. Los niños tiene que probar primer que lo merecen: sobreviviendo."
Author: Fernando Vallejo
15. "I repeat, I repeat with emphasis: all "direct" persons and men of action are active just because they are stupid and limited. How explain that? I will tell you: in consequence of their limitation they take immediate and secondary causes for primary ones, and in that way persuade themselves more quickly and easily than other people do that they have found an infallible foundation for their activity, and their minds are at ease and you know that is the chief thing."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
16. "Brown paper represents the primal twilight of the first toil of creation, and with a bright-coloured chalk or two you can pick out points of fire in it, sparks of gold, and blood-red, and sea-green, like the first fierce stars that sprang out of divine darkness."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
17. "Ambos iniciamos el impulso para levantarnos de la mesa y echarnos al medio de la calle, cuando la voz impasible de Germán Vargas nos frenó en seco con una lección para siempre: —El que se levante primero ya perdió."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
18. "Descubrí que mi obsesión de que cada cosa estuviera en su puesto, cada asunto en su tiempo, cada palabra en su estilo, no era el premio merecido de una mente en orden, sino al contrario, todo un sistema de simulación inventado por mí para ocultar el desorden de mi naturaleza. Descubrí que no soy disciplinado por virtud, sino como reacción contra mi negligencia; que parezco generoso por encubrir mi mezquindad, que me paso de prudente por mal pensado, que soy conciliador para no sucumbir a mis cóleras reprimidas, que sólo soy puntual para que no se sepa cuan poco me importa el tiempo ajeno. Descubrí, en fin, que el amor no es un estado del alma sino un signo del zodíaco."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
19. "He is a state of matter, a form of life, a sort of animal, and a species of the Order Primates, akin nearly or remotely to all of life and indeed to all that is material."
Author: George Gaylord Simpson
20. "Passò del tempo, forse una ventina di minuti: la tenda restava chiusa. Decisi di andare via. Iniziai a camminare lentamente, tenendo sempre lo sguardo fisso su quella vetrina, quando all'improvviso si aprì la porticina e un uomo ne uscì. Mi fermai di nuovo. Un altro signore sulla cinquantina si era già fermato davanti alla porticina. Non aprì affatto la tenda, ma potei vederla di fianco alla parete che attendeva il suo cliente entrare. Poco prima di richiudere la porta, i nostri sguardi s'incrociarono di nuovo. Lei esitò un istante, guardò dentro, riguardò ancora verso me. La porta si richiuse di nuovo.Altri giorni andai in quella via. Ogni volta guidato dal pensiero di quella ragazza. Ogni volta con impresso nella mente il suo sguardo triste, mentre un uomo usciva e un altro entrava per cercare amore da lei, che amore non sembrava averne più da dare."
Author: Gianluca Frangella
21. "And it's finally only in the woods you get that nostalgia for "cities" at last, you dream of long gray journeys to cities where soft evenings'll unfold like Paris but never seeing how sickening it will be because of the primordial innocence of health and stillnes in the wilds- So I tell myself "Be Wise."
Author: Jack Kerouac

Author: John Lahr
25. "(...) há frases que parecem espontâneas, produto da ocasião, e só Deus sabe que mós as moeram, que filtros as filtraram, invisivelmente, por isso quando alcançam a exprimir-se caem como sentenças salomónicas, o melhor, depois delas, teria sido o silêncio, o melhor seria que um dos dois interlocutores se ausentasse, o que as disse, ou o que as ouviu, mas no geral não é assim que procedem, as pessoas falam, falam, até que vem a perder-se por completo o sentido daquilo que, em um instante, foi definitivo e irrefragável (...)"
Author: José Saramago
26. "Most of us would like to see our enemies defeated and punished, and it is an ironic (and gruesome) human truth that many of us unconsciously entertain the same feeling about our friends and the members of our family. For there is a curious ambivalence about the human soul: it can love and hate the same object at the same time with almost equal force. Society suspects this. It half realizes that civilization is perpetually menaced because of this primary hostility of men toward one another. Therefore, culture has to summon every possible reinforcement against these aggressive hatreds. Hence the ideal command to love one's neighbor as oneself. This commandment is the strongest defense against human hatred, and even though it is impossible to fulfill it completely, men cling to it. For they unconsciously realize that if this commandment were to be swept away, the world would be a place of chaos and desolation."
Author: Joshua Loth Liebman
27. "Abril é o mês mais cruel, gera lilases da terra morta, mistura a memória e o desejo, mistura raízes dormentes com chuva de Primavera."
Author: Julia Gregson
28. "Nada era difícil una vez decidido, un tren nocturno, un primer barco, otro barco viejo y sucio, la escala en Rynos, la negociación interminable con el capitán de la falúa, la noche en el puente, pegado a las estrellas, el sabor de anís y del carnero, el amanecer entre las islas."
Author: Julio Cortázar
29. "The constant reprimands made me hyperconscious of my own performance, and so instead of getting rid of self, I had become embedded in the egoism I was supposed to transcend. Now I was beginning to understand that a silence that is not clamorous with vexation and worried self-regard can become part of the texture of your mind, can seep into you, moment by moment, and gradually change you."
Author: Karen Armstrong
30. "The Formless WayWe look at it, and do not see it; it is invisible.We listen to it, and do not hear it; it is inaudible.We touch it, and do not feel it; it is intangible.These three elude our inquiries, and hence merge into one.Not by its rising, is it bright,nor by its sinking, is it dark.Infinite and eternal, it cannot be defined.It returns to nothingness.This is the form of the formless, being in non-being.It is nebulous and elusive.Meet it, and you do not see its beginning.Follow it, and you do not see its end.Stay with the ancient Wayin order to master what is present.Knowing the primeval beginning is the essence of the Way."
Author: Lao Tzu
31. "And maybe love is terrifying. I'm terrified now, but not in the way she would think.I'm terrified because I hate who she is and what she's done, I do, and yet there is still something strong and powerful between us, some kind of deep, primal bond that won't end, won't snap or break or change, it just remains there inside me, as sold and factual as my blood and bones - she is my mother, I am her daughter - and I don't know what to call it because it doesn't feel like love, not the good kind I felt for Ellie, with all my heart, but instead an instinctual pull that's been there from the beginning, drawing me back to her again and again, the woman who has hurt me like no one else ever could, and now she's dying and the bond is still here, inside me, and I won't call it love or hate because emotions has nothing to do with the fact that she is my mother and I am her daughter, and we will be connected in that way forever."
Author: Laura Wiess
32. "La paciencia es una virtud mayor que la temeridad de meterse en una pelea inoportuna""Libre y ligera como una pluma, podia alzar el vuelo en la inmensidad del cielo y despojarme de toda la carga que me oprimía""Pero para el amor- pensé- para el amor no existe el tiempo, para el amor el ahora es la eternidad"
Author: Leah Cohn
33. "Without books we should very likely be a still-primitive people living in the shadow of traditions that faded with years until only a blur remained, and different memories would remember the past in different ways. A parent or a teacher has only his lifetime; a good book can teach forever.Without books we should very likely be a still-primitive people living in the shadow of traditions that faded with years until only a blur remained, and different memories would remember the past in different ways. A parent or a teacher has only his lifetime; a good book can teach forever."
Author: Louis L'Amour
34. "It is really hurting; how big media plagiarize everyday and no one judges them; The real heroes are those tiny and small self-funded websites and blogs that provide all primary data for them to survive and it will continue as far they exist"

35. "A rua dos cataventosDa vez primeira em que me assassinaram,Perdi um jeito de sorrir que eu tinha.Depois, a cada vez que me mataram,Foram levando qualquer coisa minha.Hoje, dos meu cadáveres eu souO mais desnudo, o que não tem mais nada.Arde um toco de Vela amarelada,Como único bem que me ficou.Vinde! Corvos, chacais, ladrões de estrada!Pois dessa mão avaramente aduncaNão haverão de arracar a luz sagrada!Aves da noite! Asas do horror! Voejai!Que a luz trêmula e triste como um ai,A luz de um morto não se apaga nunca!"
Author: Mario Quintana
36. "Si la participación en un partido político es lo último que se les ocurriría hacer a los miembros de mi generación, y el consumo políticamente correcto lo primero, es posible sacar dos conclusiones. En primer lugar, que una parte importante de mi generación no se identifica muy férreamente con el sistema democrático. En segundo lugar, que sí se identifica en cambio, y de una forma bastante estrecha, con el sistema capitalista. Mi generación no sólo consume con gusto, sino que además considera que el consumo es lo más importante que puede hacer."
Author: Meredith Haaf
37. "Este libro no tiene cosa digna que no corresponda a su original; en testimonio de lo haber correcto, di esta fee. En el Colegio de la Madre de Dios de los Teólogos de la , en primero de diciembre de 1604 años.   El licenciado"
Author: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
38. "Ferice de limba noastra caci e lipsita de suplete - ces puternic o supune, cel slab e supus de ea - în primul caz manifestarea fortei e mai vadita, mai frumoasa; în al doilea, neputunta mai izbitoare - si astfel tarâmul frumusetii ramâne mai pur, mai nobil, mai neamestecat."
Author: Novalis
39. "Prime numbers are divisible only by 1 and by themselves. They hold their place in the infinite series of natural numbers, squashed, like all numbers, between two others, but one step further than the rest. They are suspicious, solitary numbers, which is why Mattia thought they were wonderful. Sometimes he thought that they had ended up in that sequence by mistake, that they'd been trapped, like pearls strung on a necklace. Other times he suspected that they too would have preferred to be like all others, just ordinary numbers, but for some reason they couldn't do it. this second thought struck him mostly at night, in the chaotic interweaving of images that comes before sleep, when the mind is too weak to tell itself lies."
Author: Paolo Giordano
40. "Walking is magic. Can't recommend it highly enough. I read that Plato and Aristotle did much of their brilliant thinking together while ambulating. The movement, the meditation, the health of the blood pumping, and the rhythm of footsteps...this is a primal way to connect with one's deeper self."
Author: Paula Cole
41. "Mas, além da injustiça do seu sistema, vêem-se bem todas as suas funestas consequências, a perturbação em todas as classes da sociedade, uma odiosa e insuportável servidão para todos os cidadãos, porta aberta a todas as invejas, a todos os descontentamentos, a todas as discórdias; o talento e a habilidade privados dos seus estímulos, e, como consequência necessária, as riquezas estancadas na sua fonte; enfim, em lugar dessa igualdade tão sonhada, a igualdade na nudez, na indigência e na miséria. Por tudo o que Nós acabamos de dizer, se compreende que a teoria socialista da propriedade colectiva deve absolutamente repudiar-se como prejudicial àqueles membros a que se quer socorrer, contrária aos direitos naturais dos indivíduos, como desnaturando as funções do Estado e perturbando a tranquilidade pública. Fique, pois, bem assente que o primeiro fundamento a estabelecer por todos aqueles que querem sinceramente o bem do povo é a inviolabilidade da propriedade particular."
Author: Pope Leo XIII
42. "Primul ceai, prima sarutare, prima întâmplare de dragoste, toate sunt la fel: nu poti niciodata sa le simti gustul."
Author: Radu Tudoran
43. "Poetry expands the senses and keeps them in prime condition. It keeps you aware of your nose, your eye, your ear, your tongue, your hand."
Author: Ray Bradbury
44. "Performa's founder and prime mover, Roselee Goldberg, has great instincts for which artists might collaborate well together."
Author: Roberta Smith
45. "The art of governing, Dickon, is that of making use of talent wherever you do find it. Trust is too rare an attribute to make it your prime prerequisite for holding office. If I relied only upon those I truly do trust, we'd have a council of empty chairs!"
Author: Sharon Kay Penman
46. "The root of all inauthentic manifestations of being-with-others is the attitude of self-concern. It is in this state of mind that, either consciously or unconsciously, we reduce the central aim of all value and meaning to the accomplishment of the welfare of ourselves alone. This attitude can operate very deviously even in the person who outwardly appears to be thoroughly altruistic. Despite all magnanimous commitments and generous deeds, it silently measures the ultimate worth of these things in terms of the personal satisfaction that results from them. It is the root of inauthentic being-with because it is primarily responsible in preventing our essential being-with-others from full and genuine expression."
Author: Stephen Batchelor
47. "People deal with me, but they are genuinely fond of Prim. Maybe there will be enough fondness to keep her alive."
Author: Suzanne Collins
48. "Dwarfs were not a naturally religious species, but in a world where pit props could crack without warning and pockets of fire damp could suddenly explode they'd seen the need for gods as the sort of supernatural equivalent of a hard hat. Besides, when you hit your thumb with an eight-pound hammer it's nice to be able to blaspheme. It takes a very special and strong-minded kind of atheist to jump up and down with their hand clasped under their other armpit and shout, "Oh, random-fluctuations-in-the-space-time-continuum!" or "Aaargh, primitive-and-outmoded-concept on a crutch!"
Author: Terry Pratchett
49. "Switters was actually quite fond of Seattle's weather, and not merely because of it's ambivalence. He liked it's subtle, muted qualities and the landscape that those qualities encouraged if not engendered: vistas that seemed to have been sketched with a sumi brush dipped in quicksilver and green tea. It was fresh, it was clean, it was gently primal, and mystically suggestive."
Author: Tom Robbins
50. "Prima del risveglio, le voci degli uccelli e il rumore delle ruote si intonano e producono una strana armonia, che cresce e cresce, e chi dorme si sente spinto verso le rive della vita, così si sentì lui, tirato verso la vita, col sole che diventava sempre più caldo, le grida sempre più forti; qualcosa di tremendo stava per accadere."
Author: Virginia Woolf
