51. "Si tu le veux bien, cela restera comme le grand secret de mon règne. Tout ce qu'on peut me reprocher aujourd'hui, c'est d'avoir fait encore un petit progrès sur la voie de la puissance et de la liberté. Pour un homme qui aime le pouvoir, la rivalité des dieux a quelque chose d'agaçant. J'ai suppri-mé cela. J'ai prouvé à ces dieux illusoires qu'un homme, s'il en a la volonté, peut exercer, sans apprentissage, leur mé-tier ridicule."
Author: Albert Camus
52. "Et sans doute une guerre est certainement trop be^te, mais cela ne l'empe^che pas de durer. La be^tise insiste toujours, on s'en apercevrait si l'on ne pensait pas toujours a` soi. Nos concitoyens a` cet e´gard e´taient comme tout le monde, ils pensaient a` eux-me^mes, autrement dit ils e´taient humanistes : ils ne croyaient pas aux fle´aux. Le fle´au n'est pas a` la mesure de l'homme, on se dit donc que le fle´au est irre´el, c'est un mauvais re^ve qui va passer. Mais il ne passe pas toujours et, de mauvais re^ve en mauvais re^ve, ce sont les hommes qui passent, et les humanistes en premier lieu, parce qu'ils n'ont pas pris leurs pre´cautions."
Author: Albert Camus
53. "Perhaps it's the alien equivalent of a discarded tomato can. Does a beetle know why it can enter the can only from one end as it lies across the trail to the beetle's burrow? Does the beetle understand why it is harder to climb to the left or right, inside the can, than it is to follow a straight line? Would the beetle be a fool to assume the human race put the can there to torment it — or an egomaniac to believe the can was manufactured only to mystify it? It would be best for the beetle to study the can in terms of the can's logic, to the limit of the beetle's ability. In that way, at least, the beetle can proceed intelligently. It may even grasp some hint of the can's maker. Any other approach is either folly or madness."

Author: Deb Caletti

Author: Federico García Lorca
67. "When you criticize someone with followers, the followers recognize that, if you are correct, they have been sucked in. If they had been sucked in, then they must not be too bright, or at least they were not well enough informed to form a critical judgment which would have led them to identify their leader as someone not worth following. So, a criticism of the leader produces a particular response in the followers. They feel that there has been an attack on them personally. The critic is saying, loud and clear, that anyone who has followed this particular leader is not a good judge of character, intellect, or facts. They are quite correct. This is exactly what the critic is saying."
Author: Gary North

70. "The crying sounded even louder out of doors. It was as if all the pain in the world had found a voice. Yet had I known such pain was in the next room, and had it been dumb, I believe—I have thought since—I could have stood it well enough. It is when suffering finds a voice and sets our nerves quivering that this pity comes troubling us. But in spite of the brilliant sunlight and the green fans of the trees waving in the soothing sea-breeze, the world was a confusion, blurred with drifting black and red phantasms, until I was out of earshot of the house in the stone wall."
Author: H.G. Wells
71. "Starshine's greatest challenge is deciding whether a woman is too young to soothe or too old to shame. Handling the men is much easier. They may feign interest in figures and photos, but their underlying interest is for breasts and thighs. A generous smile often adds an extra zero to a check; an additional inch of exposed cleavage can clothe five Laotian children. The vast majority of these men do not expect to purchase Starshine's favors. They are husbands, fathers, pillars of the community, the sort of upstanding middle-aged patriarchs who would rather castrate their libidos than compromise their reputations, and even if their three-digit donations could earn them a quickie with the canvasser, they would deny themselves the pleasure."
Author: Jacob M. Appel

Every single person in the room looks as if they are concealing a weapon of some sort.

Oh dear God, I'm going to die!First, I get dumped – on my birthday no less – and now I'm going to get knifed in some seedy bar!"
Author: Joanne McClean

Perhaps they saw what their minds were instructed to see, because the human brain is not equipped to see War, Famine, Pollution, and Death when they don't want to be seen, and has got so good at it that it often manages not to see them even when they abound on every side."
Author: Neil Gaiman
