16. "The great ones do not set up offices, charge fees, give lectures, or write books. Wisdom is silent, and the most effective propaganda for truth is the force of personal example. The great ones attract disciples, lesser figures whose mission is to preach and to teach. These are gospelers who, unequal to the highest task, spend their lives in converting others. The great ones are indifferent, in the profoundest sense. They don't ask you to believe: they electrify you by their behavior. They are the awakeners. What you do with your petty life is of no concern to them. What you do with your life is only of concern to you, they seem to say. In short, their only purpose here on earth is to inspire. And what more can one ask of a human being than that?"
Author: Henry Miller

"Ut pictura, poesis: erit, quae, si propius stes,Te capiat magis, et quaedam, si longius abstes:Haec amat obscurum: volet haec sub luce videri,Iudicis argutum quae non formidat acumen:Haec placuit semel, haec decies repetita placebit.Poezia i perngjet piktures: njera te terheq me tepernga afer, kurse tjetra prej se largu;kjo e do erresiren, ajo do te shikohet ne drite,sepse aspak nuk frikesohet nga shikimi i kritikut,njera do te pelqehet nje here, kurse tjetra ne vijim dhjete here."

(y no es que le quiera hacer propaganda a la mariconada, pero es una verdad que ya sabían los antiguos griegos cuando se metían todos calatos al jacuzi: que rico hacer mañoserías con una hembrita joven y deseosa de carnosidades, pero es mucho más rico entregarse al cuerpo joven, durito, musculoso, de un chiquillo atlético y de espíritu liviano. ay qué rico, se me hace agüita la boca, cómo te envidio, sócrates, desgraciado, bien hecho que te hayas chupado todita la cicuta, mamón.)"

With no one to shape me, who stands here, watching the moon, or the stars, or the clouds?"
Author: Kij Johnson

The screaming, their hasty footsteps, and the officer warning them to stop all receded as his mind was occupied with this thought.It might have been inappropriate. And besides… he'd ripped it off. Oh, man. But still he thought this:Together Noriko we'll live with the sadness. I'll love you with all the madness in my soul. Someday girl I don't know when we're gonna get to that place. Where we really want to go and we'll walk in the sun. But till then tramps like us baby we were born to run."

They possess the vast ability in grasping, and arranging, and appropriating to themselves the big, heavy, solid unrealities, such as gold, landed estate, offices of trust and emolument, and public honors. With these materials, and with deeds of goodly aspect, done in the public eye, an individual of this class builds up, as it were, a tall and stately edifice, which, in the view of other people, and ultimately in his own view, is no other than the man's character, or the man himself."
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Author: Neil Gaiman

Author: Norman Jewison
32. "The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. The swineherd cannot already be wed to the princess when he embarks on his adventures, nor can the boy knock on the witch's door when she is already away on vacation. The wicked uncle cannot be found out and foiled before he does something wicked. Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a very long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story."
Author: Peter S. Beagle

37. "Good lack-a-daisy, Clara!" her aunt reproached her. "The man might dress improperly, but he'sbehaving like a perfect gentleman otherwise. And being wonderfully kind to the lassies, too. Why do youinsist on being rude to him?""Yes, mademoiselle," Morgan teased, "do explain yourself." Settling back against the carriage, hecrossed his brawny arms over his chest. The muscles strained against the flimsy cambric shirt, making hermouth go dry. Why must a scoundrel fit only for hell possess a body fit for heaven?"
Author: Sabrina Jeffries
38. "Atata timp cat esti anesteziat si nu iti simti tragedia propriei vieti, poti supravietui. Cand iti revine limpezimea, cand iti este meticulos redata, te poate innebuni. memoria retrezita la viata te poate sminti, amintirea umilintei, a celor ce ti s-au intamplat fara stirea ta, a atator intruziuni, amintirea barbatilor. Nu un palat, ci un bordel al amintirilor, iar dincolo de aceste amintiri, constiinta faptului ca toti cei care te-au iubit sunt morti, ca nu exista nici o scapare. un asemenea gand te poate ridica in picioare, te poate face sa iti aduni fortele si sa o iei la goana. Daca fugi destul de tare poate vei scapa de trecut si de amintirea a tot ce ti s-a intamplat, si totodata de viitor, de intunericul inevitabil ce ti se intinde in fata."
Author: Salman Rushdie

41. "We must not falter nor weary in well-doing. We must lengthen our stride. Not only is our own eternal welfare at stake, but also the eternal welfare of many of our brothers and sisters who are not now members of this, the true Church. I thrill to the words of the Prophet Joseph Smith in a letter that he sent to the Church from Nauvoo on September 6, 1842: 'Shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward. … Courage … and on, on to the victory!"
Author: Spencer W. Kimball

46. "TIZIANO : Le modèle occidental a désormais été accepté par tous. Il est arrivé jusqu'en Chine, en Asie du Sud-Est, à Singapour, dans toute l'Indochine ; seul le Laos survit en quelque sorte. C'est le thème sur lequel je reviens sans cesse dans "Un devin m'a dit" : le joyeux suicide des pays d'Asie décidés à suivre un modèle de développement de type occidental, et prêts à renoncer à leur propre modèle de développement.FOLCO : Pourquoi ?TIZIANO : C'est simple. Parce qu'ils pensent que c'est le seul moyen. Nous leur avons vendu le christianisme, le colonialisme, toutes ces salades ; et, pour finir, nous leur avons vendu l'idée selon laquelle il ne peut y avoir qu'un seul type de modernité, la nôtre. Alors, ce modèle s'est exporté grâce aux moyens de communication de masse comme la télévision, et il s'est imposé dans toute l'Asie. (p. 300-301)"
Author: Tiziano Terzani
47. "And obviously, with hindsight now, now knowing what went on in the company, it would have been absolutely appropriate back then for us to have the chief executive of the company, most senior person in the United Kingdom, come and answer for the policy they were pursuing. And we ducked that, and frankly that's a failure of Parliament."
