Author: Barack Obama

Author: Christopher Hitchens

I guess it come as somethin of a shock to her to meet a even bigger liear than what she was. But he told the naked truth. Of course she called hishand on it. Said she knew for a fact he drank.

She asked him when did he quit and he said I just now did. And she went out with him. And as far as I know he never took another drink. Till she quit him of course.

There is comfortin the tried and true.Breaking groundmight uncover a sinkhole,one impossible to climb outof. And setting sail inuncharted watersmight mean capsizing intoa sea monster's jaws.Easier to turn my back onthese thingsthan to try tjem and fail.And yet, a whisper insistsI need to know if they are oraren't integral to me.Status quo is a swamp.And stagnation is slow death."
Author: Ellen Hopkins

Pour être apte à penser, il faudrait aimer la beauté et la justice et donc avoir une âme bonne. Le monde serait divisé en bons et en méchants sans qu'on sache pourquoi. Cette division, c'est exactement ce que nous ne cherchions pas. Dès lors il faut reprendre l'analyse."
Author: Hannah Arendt

Author: Harriet Blaine
20. "It was one of the secret opinions, such as we all have, of Peter Brench, that his main success in life would have consisted in his never having committed himself about the work, as it was called, of his friend Morgan Mallow. This was a subject on which it was, to the best of his belief, impossible with veracity to quote him, and it was nowhere on record that he had, in the connexion, on any occasion and in any embarrassment, either lied or spoken the truth. Such a triumph had its honour even for a man of other triumphs--a man who had reached fifty, who had escaped marriage, who had lived within his means, who had been in love with Mrs Mallow for years without breathing it, and who, last but not least, had judged himself once for all."
Author: Henry James
21. "And even as this old guide-book boasts of the, to us, insignificant Liverpool of fifty years ago, the New York guidebooks are now vaunting of the magnitude of a town, whose future inhabitants, multitudinous as the pebbles on the beach, and girdled in with high walls and towers, flanking endless avenues of opulence and taste, will regard all our Broadways and Bowerys as but the paltry nucleus to their Nineveh. From far up the Hudson, beyond Harlem River where the young saplings are now growing, that will overarch their lordly mansions with broad boughs, centuries old; they may send forth explorers to penetrate into the then obscure and smoky alleys of the Fifth Avenue and Fourteenth Street; and going still farther south, may exhume the present Doric Custom-house, and quote it as a proof that their high and mighty metropolis enjoyed a Hellenic antiquity."
Author: Herman Melville
22. "Misquotations are the only quotations that are never misquoted."
Author: Hesketh Pearson
23. "L'avenir ! répondit-elle en riant.Qu'appelez-vous l'avenir ? Pourquoi penseraisjeà ce qui n'existe pas encore ? Je ne regarde jamais ni en arrière ni en avant demoi. N'est-ce pas déjà trop que de m'occuper d'une journée à la fois ? D'ailleurs,l'avenir, nous le connaissons, c'est l'hôpital."
Author: Honoré De Balzac
24. "Single women have a dreadful propensity for being poor...which is one very strong argument in favour of matrimony...Quote from a Jane Austen Letter 13 March, 1817"
Author: Jane Austen
25. "..the hope I have for women: that we can start to see ourselves-and encourage men to see us-as more than just the sum of our sexual parts: not as virgins or whores, as mothers or girlfriends, or as existing only in relation to men, but as people with independent desires, hopes and abilities. But I know that this can't happen as long as American culture continues to inundate us with gender-role messages that place everyone-men and women-in an unnatural hierarchical order that's impossible to maintain without strife. For women to move forward, and for men to break free, we need to overcome the masculinity status quo-together."
Author: Jessica Valenti
26. "But from the start I had withheld from him any information about the giant redwoods. It seemed to me that a Long Island poodle who had made his devoirs to Sequoia sempervirens or Sequoia gigantea might be set apart from other dogs--might even be like that Galahad who saw the Grail. The concept is staggering."
Author: John Steinbeck

28. "The status quo and the media is doing everything it can to fry children's brains and make them grow up maladjusted."
Author: Julie Christie
29. "To believe that man's aggressiveness or territoriality is in the nature of the beast is to mistake some men for all men, contemporary society for all possible societies, and, by a remarkable transformation, to justify what is as what needs must be; social repression becomes a response to, rather than a cause of, human violence. Pessimism about man serves to maintain the status quo. It is a luxury for the affluent, a sop to the guilt of the politically inactive, a comfort to those who continue to enjoy the amenities of privilege."
Author: Leon Eisenberg
30. "Laissez-vous mener. Nous n'avons plus l'âge des pourquoi."
Author: Louis Aragon
31. "Sorry. I get attacks of quotitis every once in a while. It's a very rare disease with no cure. It usually attacks older people, and here i am afflicted with it at my tender age."
Author: Madeleine L'Engle
32. "Je suis une ombre dans ta vie, tu es bien plus que ça dans la mienne et ça me fait mal. […] Pourquoi m'avoir laissée entrer dans ta vie si ce n'était qu'en simple visiteuse ? J'ai pensé cent fois te quitter, mais je n'y arrive pas toute seule. Alors je te demande un service, fais-le pour nous, ou si tu crois que nous avons quelque chose à partager, même si ce n'est que pour un temps, donne-nous vraiment les moyens de vivre cette histoire."
Author: Marc Levy
33. "Take an instance: the removal of the motto [In God We Trust] fetched out a clamor from the pulpit; little groups and small conventions of clergymen gathered themselves together all over the country, and one of these little groups, consisting of twenty-two ministers, put up a prodigious assertion unbacked by any quoted statistics and passed it unanimously in the form of a resolution: the assertion, to wit, that this is a Christian country. Why, Carnegie, so is hell. Those clergymen know that, inasmuch as "Strait is the way and narrow is the gate, and few — few — are they that enter in thereat" has had the natural effect of making hell the only really prominent Christian community in any of the worlds; but we don't brag of this and certainly it is not proper to brag and boast that America is a Christian country when we all know that certainly five-sixths of our population could not enter in at the narrow gate."
Author: Mark Twain
34. "Pourquoi respecterais-je l'être humain quand il me méprise ? Qu'il vive donc en harmonie avec moi. S'il y consentait, loin de lui nuire, je lui ferais tout le bien possible, et c'est avec des larmes de joie que je lui témoignerais ma reconnaissance. Mais cela ne peut être. Les sentiments des humains de dressent comme une barrière pour empêcher un tel accord. Jamais pourtant je ne me soumettrai à un aussi abject esclavage. Je me vengerai du tord que l'on me fait. Si je ne puis inspirer l'amour, eh bien, j'infligerai la peur, et cela principalement à vous, mon ennemi par ecellence. Parce que vous êtes mon créateur, je jure de vous exécrer à jamais. Prenez garde ! Je me consacrerai à votre destruction, et je ne serai satisfait que lorsque j'aurai plongé votre coeur dans la désolation, lorsque je vous aurai fait maudire le jour où vous êtes né."
Author: Mary Shelley

Author: Michael Isikoff
36. "The sports world is an echo chamber. All it takes is one quote from a general manager and a thousand sports columns bloom."
Author: Michael Lewis
37. "Lorsque la sexualité disparaît, c'est le corps de l'autre qui apparaît, dans sa présence vaguement hostile; ce sont les bruits, les mouvements, les odeurs; et la présence même de ce corps qu'on ne peut plus toucher, ni sanctifier par le contact, devient peu à peu une gêne; tout cela malheureusement, est connu. La disparition de la tendresse suit toujours de près celle de l'érotisme. Il n'y a pas de relation épurée, d'union supérieure des âmes, ni quoi que ce soit qui puisse y ressembler, ou même l'évoquer sur un mode allusif. Quand l'amour physique disparaît, tout disparaît; un agacement morne, sans profondeur, vient remplir la succession des jours."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
38. "« Pourquoi tu n'arrêtes pas ? » demanda Jed. Son père le regarda sans réagir, avec une expression d'incompréhension totale.« Je veux dire que tu as gagné pas mal d'argent. Tu pourrais certainement te retirer, profiter un peu de la vie. » Son père le fixait toujours, comme si les mots n'arrivaient pas à son esprit, ou qu'il ne parvenait pas à leur donner un sens, puis au bout d'au moins une minute il demande : « Mais qu'est-ce que je ferais ? », et sa voix était celle d'un enfant égaré."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
39. "Making fiction for children, making books for children, isn't something you do for money. It's something you do because what children read and learn and see and take in changes them and forms them, and they make the future. They make the world we're going to wind up in, the world that will be here when we're gone. Which sounds preachy (and is more than you need for a quotebyte) but it's true. I want to tell kids important things, and I want them to love stories and love reading and love finding things out. I want them to be brave and wise. So I write for them."
Author: Neil Gaiman
40. "My job involves searching for 'lost' quotations - that is, trying to find out who came up with a quotable saying that lingers in someone's mind and which they wish to use for their own purpose and which they cannot find in conventional dictionaries of quotation."
Author: Nigel Rees
41. "Goodreads' policy of not listing the book a quote comes from (and even better, also the page it appears in) is certainly unreasonable, for it harms its traceability and verifiability, and thus increases the risk of a proliferation of absurd made-up quotes. Users, therewore, would do well - until Goodreads revises their quoting criteria - in including the source their quotes come from in this box, even if this is slightly aesthetically unpleasant."
Author: Oscar Wilde
42. "There was only today to throw yourself into without thinking about tomorrow, let alone forever. To keep you from thinking, there was liquor, an ocean's worth at least, all the usual vices and plenty of rope to hang yourself with.Love is a beautiful liar."
Author: Paula McLain
43. "Not much could have distracted me from coffee, but hearing Julius Caesar quoted at Spencer's certainly did."
Author: Richelle Mead
44. "Quoting geneticists, Guy Murcia says we're all family. You have at least a million relatives as close as tenth cousin, and no one on Earth is further removed than your fiftieth cousin. Murcia also describes out kinship though an analysis of how deeply we share the air. With each breath, you take into your body 10 sextillion atoms, and-owing to the wind's ceaseless circulation- over a year's time you have intimate relations with oxygen molecules exhaled by every person alive, as well as everyone who ever lived. (The Seven Mysteries of Life)"
Author: Rob Brezsny
45. "Here's the thing - in this damned century, you'll meet a lot of people who do a lot of things. What's funny is the fact that the most desirable attributes of these people are nothing but developed and cultured thoughts. And these things come naturally to people who shine bright. The other guys just try to ape these thoughts, in an embarrassing attempt to recreate some of that magic. Sadly,- what looks beautiful as a natural quotient can be extremely funny and disgusting when replicated manually. Stop replicating feelings; else you'll turn into one of those duplicate personalities. They're wannabes. You don't have to become one!"
Author: Shomprakash Sinha Roy
46. "I could quote enough Nietzsche to bore someone into a coma, solve mathematical problems so beautiful they'd make Pythagoras cry; I could talk so much bullshit the listener didn't know if I was coming or going, but I had gotten to know Rickie well enough to realize that I had no idea how a woman's mind worked."
Author: T.J. Forrester
47. "Honestly, I try and stay away from what's been written about me, because if you let that stuff get to you and it's not true it can drive you crazy. One thing that I have heard recently which is not true, I didn't say it, is that I believe I was quote saying 'I will never take my shirt off for a movie again.' I didn't say that."
Author: Taylor Lautner
48. "I can see! So this is the sky! So this is blood! So this is the world! So this is what you look like, Komamura. You are uglier than I thought." -Kaname Tousen (I'm sorry to say but this quote had me laughing so much XD)"
Author: Tite Kubo
49. "Horses and ride them," he told Jobs. "You guys are the ones I'm betting on, so you figure it out." Perot brought to NeXT something that was almost as valuable as his $20 million lifeline: He was a quotable, spirited"
Author: Walter Isaacson
50. "It's like that quote: 'If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.' The choice between a duty or a principle, you know?"
Author: Zadie Smith

I want parents out there to know that it's totally natural for kids to make believe and play games. It does not mean your child is going to be transgendered. And even if it were true, why is it such a horrible thing?"
