1. "Creo que perdemos la inmortalidad porque la resistencia a la muerte no ha evolucionado; sus perfeccionamientos insisten en la primera idea, rudimentaria: retener vivo todo el cuerpo. Sólo habría que buscar la conservación de lo que interesa a la conciencia."
Author: Adolfo Bioy Casares
2. "So the fact tht anyone would ever suggest that Arab women are dominated and demeaned is really quite ludicrous. In this part of the world, She's just Not That Into Him. We're the ones who make a pantomime of the wedding, and play at happily ever after....The men might think they have the upper hand, they may believe they've nabbed themselves a prime piece of arm candy, but we've got his 'potential as a provider' wrapped around our little fingers. Oh yes, we're the smart ones."
Author: Amy Mowafi

Author: Caio Fernando Abreu
5. "Toda a arte é agressiva, Isabella. E toda a vida de artista é uma pequena ou uma grande guerra, a começar pelo próprio e pelas suas limitações. Para chegar a alguma coisa que te proponhas é preciso primeiro a ambição e depois o talento, o conhecimento e, por fim, a oportunidade."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

No me cae bien, en primer lugar porque no la conozco, así que me resulta más fácil, en segundo lugar porque me esfuerzo por imaginármela lo más asquerosa posible, en tercer lugar porque lo consigo, y en cuarto lugar: pues sí, porque ella me quita lo que me queda de ti, los restos escritos, los vestigios de esperanza. Esperanza de..., de..., ni idea de qué, simplemente esperanza."
Author: Daniel Glattauer
9. "It is to a dramatist, which is to say, to an unfrocked psychoanalyst, stunning that that which has sustained the Left in my generation, its avatar, its prime issue, has been abortion. For, whether or not it is regarded as a woman's right, an unfortunate necessity, or murder, which is to say, irrespective of differing and legitimate political views, to enshrine it as the most important test of the Liberal, is, mythologically, an assertion to the ultimate right of a postreligious Paganism."
Author: David Mamet

Author: Diana Pharaoh Francis
12. "É extraordinário! Neste abençoado país todos os políticos têm «imenso talento». A oposição confessa sempre que os ministros, que ela cobre de injúrias, tem, à parte os disparates que fazem, um «talento de primeira ordem»! Por outro lado a maioria admite que a oposição, a quem ela contantemente recrimina pelos disparates que fez, está cheia de «robustíssimos talentos»! De resto todo o mundo concorda que o país é uma choldra. E resulta portanto este facto supracómico: um país governado «com imenso talento», que é de todos na Europa, segundo o consenso unânime, o mais estùpidamente governado! Eu proponho isto, a ver: que, como os talentos sempre falham, se experimentem uma vez os imbecis!"
Author: Eça De Queirós
13. " a pale desert of gigantic water-lilies. They sigh one unto the other in that solitude. And stretch towards the heaven their long and ghastly necks. And nod to and fro their everlasting heads. And there is an indistinct murmur which cometh out from among them like the rushing of subterrene water. And they sigh unto the other... And the tall primeval trees rock eternally hither and thither with a crashing and mighty sound. And from their high summits, one by one, drop everlasting dews. And at the roots strange poisonous flowers lie writhing in perturbed slumber. And overhead, with a rustling loud noise, the gray clouds rush westwardly forever, until they roll, a cataract, over the fiery wall of the horizon..."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
14. "Y por primera vez en mi vida, la salida fue la de la fe . Esta fe llegaba del saber profundo de que yo disponía de la suficiente fuerza y del coraje como para poder sufrir sola esta agonía y la certeza de que nunca se nos da más de lo que podemos aguantar. De pronto comprendí que sólo tenía que cesar en mi lucha, transformar mi resistencia en sumisión y decir sencillamente "si"."
Author: Elisabeth Kübler Ross
15. "Nada funciona aquí. Ni la ley del talión ni la ley de Cristo. La primera, porque el estado ni la aplica ni la deja aplicar: ni raja ni presta el hacha como mi difunta mamá. La segunda porque es intrínsecamente perversa. Cristo es el gran introductor de la impunidad y el desorden en el mundo. Cuando tú vuelves a Colombia la otra mejilla, de un segundo trancazo te acaban de desprender la retina. Y una vez que no ves, te cascan de una puñalada en el corazón."
Author: Fernando Vallejo
16. "Ahora se por qué: el esfuerzo de escribir un cuento corto es tan intenso como empezar una novela. Pues en el primer párrafo de una novela hay que definir todo: estructura, tono, estilo, ritmo, longitud, y a veces hasta el carácter de algún personaje. Lo demás es el placer de escribir, el más íntimo y solitario que pueda imaginarse, y si uno no se queda corrigiendo el libro por el resto de la vida es porque el mismo rigor de fierro que hace falta para empezarlo se impone para terminarlo."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
17. "...Macondo Esta palabra me había llamado la atención desde los primeros viajes con mi abuelo, pero sólo de adulto descubrí que me gustaba su resonancia poética."

18. "Desde la primera noche de luna, ambos se hicieron trizas los corazones con un amor de principiantes feroces"
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Author: Gary Zukav
20. "To je zabluda. Knjiga ne može da zameni svet. To je nemogucno. U životu sve ima svoj smisao i svoj zadatak koji ne mogu bez ostatka biti ispunjeni necim drugim. Nije mogucno, na primer, proživeti nešto posredstvom nekog zamenika. Tako je i sa svetom i knjigom. Pokušavamo da život zatvorimo u knjige kao pticu pevacicu u kavez. Ali, u tome ne uspevamo. Naprotiv! Covek od knjiških apstrakcija ne izgraduje ništa drugo nego sistem u vidu kaveza za sebe."
Author: Gustav Janouch
21. "This feeling that--contrary to the consciously philosophic and historical conception which proclaims unceasing and peaceful progress--one is experiencing a last brief, irretrievable intellectual prime of humanity manifests itself in the greatest representatives of this period in different ways, in keeping with the unconscious character of this feeling."
Author: György Lukács
22. "He found and praised Muriel Spark's The Driver's Seat. I said I found it too schematic and preferred The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. He nodded, but not in agreement, it seemed, more like a therapist who now understood my problem."
Author: Ian McEwan
23. "The Prime of LifeIt was, in truth, an eager youthWho halted me one day.He gazed in bliss at me, and thisIs what he had to say;"Why, mazel tov, it's Asimov,A blessing on your head!For many a year, I've lived in fearThat you were long since dead.Or if alive, one fifty-fiveCold years had passed you by,And left you weak, with poor physique,Thin hair and rheumy eye.For sure enough, I've read your stuffSince I was but a ladAnd couldn't spell or hardly tellThe good yarns from the bad.My father, too, was reading youBefore he met my Ma.For you he yearned, once he had learnedAbout you from his Pa.Since time began, you wondrous man,My ancestors did loveThat s.f. dean and writing machineThe aged Asimov."I'd had my fill. I said, "Be still!I've kept my old-time spark.My step is light, my eye is bright,My hair is thick and dark."His smile, in brief, spelled disbelief,So this is what I did;I scowled, you know, and with one blow,I killed that rotten kid."
Author: Isaac Asimov
24. "If the prime directives were followed a little more accurately here on earth, I mean it sounds somewhat Pollyanna, but I think people would certainly get along better."
Author: Jonathan Frakes
25. "Tal como a experiência da comunicação tem abundantemente demonstrado, o poder de mobilização da palavra oral, no imediato, em nada inferior ao da palavra escrita, e mesmo, num primeiro momento, talvez mais apta que ela a arrebanhar vontades e multidões, é dotada de um alcance histórico bastante mais limitado, devido a que, com as repetições do discurso, se lhe fatiga com rapidez o fôlego e se lhe desviam os propósitos. Não se vê outra razão para que as leis que nos regem estejam todas escritas."
Author: José Saramago
26. "Y donde la capacidad no ocupa el primer lugar, no hay verdadera aristocracia de mente y espíritu."

30. "Aquí es donde cumplí mi primer castigoY aquí es donde una estatua de mármol casi me decapitaY aquí es donde compartí el picnic más raro de mi vida con un chico del reformatorio que no les gustaría nada..."Tengo que vivir, ver a los niños nacer, crecer y enamorarse. Veo cómo ellos mismos tienen hijos y envejecen. Veo cómo mueren. Luce, estoy condenado a verlos una y otra vez. A todos menos a ti...""Vago por la tierra y en el fondo siempre sé que voy a encontrarte...Siempre volvias cada 17 años...""Tu eres mi amor, Lucinda. Para mi, ere lo único que existe...""Jamás podrán creer nada de esto...Puedes tú?"
Author: Lauren Kate
31. "Algum tempo hesitei se devia abrir estas memórias pelo princípio ou pelo fim, isto é, se poria em primeiro lugar o meu nascimento ou a minha morte."
Author: Machado De Assis
32. "Ecco, amore mio. Quell'uomo elegante con i gomiti appoggiati al bancone del caff des Tourneurs, che ti sorride, è mio padre. Sotto la terra di Francia riposano i tuoi compagni. Ogni volta che sento qualcuno esprimere le proprie idee in un mondo libero, penso a loro. Allora mi ricordo che la parola «straniero» è una delle più belle promesse del mondo, una promessa a colori, bella come la Libertà"
Author: Marc Levy

35. "Freedom, or individual liberty, was a basic premise of the Spanish anarchist tradition. "Individual sovereignty" is a prime tenet of most anarchist writing; the free development of one' s individual potential is one of the basic "rights" to which all humans are born. Yet Spanish anarchists were firmly rooted in the communalist-anarchist tradition. For them, freedom was fundamentally a social product: the fullest expression of individuality and of creativity can be achieved only in and through community. As Carmen Conde (a teacher who was also active in Mujeres Libres) wrote, describing the relationship of individuality and community: "I and my truth; I and my faith ... And I for you, but without ever ceasing to be me, so that you can always be you. Because I don' t exist without your existence, but my existence is also indispensable to yours."
Author: Martha A. Ackelsberg

Author: Muriel Spark
39. "It put him out of humor for the rest of the day.It stuck in his craw and festered thered.A nasty little canker sore on the ego.Snob? Where did the woman get off calling him a snob? And after he'd made the effort to be friendly, even complimenting her on her snooty little riding academy.He did the evening check himself, as was his habit, and spent considerable time going over the prime filly who was to head down to Hialeah to race there. Ttavis wanted Brian to go along for this one, and he was more than happy to oblige.It would do him a world of good to put a thousand miles or so between himself and Keeley."Shouldn't be looking in that direction, even for a blink," he muttered, then nuzzled the filly."
Author: Nora Roberts
40. "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
41. "It's not arrogant to say that you can't figure out the answers to the universe with your internal faith. It's not arrogant to know that there's no omniscient, omnipotent prime mover in the universe who loves you personally. It's not sad to feel that life and the love of your real friends and family is more than enough to make life worth living. Isn't it much sadder to feel that there is a more important love required than the love of the people who have chosen to spend their limited time with you?"
Author: Penn Jillette

I had both girls primed, panties on the floor, dying to jump me, but all I could think about was Anna.' Raising his hands in the air, his voice picked up strength and volume, 'I didn't want to fuck either of those girls because I'm in love with your fucking sister! Are you happy now, bitch! I'm fucking whipped...just like these other pussies.' He indicated his band mates."
Author: S.C. Stephens
46. "We are lucky to have Manmohan Singh as our Prime Minister. We could not have done without a person and leader of the choice as Manmohan Singh, who gets all international attention."
Author: Salman Khurshid
47. "Good description is a learned skill, one of the prime reasons why you cannot succeed unless you read a lot and write a lot. It's not just a question of how-to, you see; it's also a question of how much to. Reading will help you answer how much, and only reams of writing will help you with the how. You can learn only by doing."
Author: Stephen King
48. "El se queda paralizado, aunque no se aparta, así que sigo acariciándole dulcemente el cabello. Es la primera vez que lo toco por voluntad propia desde la última arena.-Sigues intentando protegerme. ¿Real o no? -susurra.-Real -respondo; quizá deba explicarlo mejor-. Porque eso es lo que nosotros dos hacemos: nos protegemos el uno al otro. [pp.327]"

Author: Thaksin Shinawatra
50. "When I became prime minister last September, I promised the Japanese people that I would not tolerate the politics of indecision. A propensity to delay difficult and weighty decisions has been hurting our country. It is detrimental to our economy, society and future, and it cannot be allowed to continue."
Author: Yoshihiko Noda
