Non ditemi che è troppo tardi, che questo prezioso sentimento è svanito per sempre. Vi offro di nuovo il mio cuore, vi appartiene ancor più di quando otto anni e mezzo fa voi quasi me lo spezzaste. Non dite per carità che l'uomo dimentica più della donna, che il suo amore è più rapido a morire. Non ho mai amato nessuna all'infuori di voi. Posso essere stato ingiusto, forse debole e offeso, ma incostante mai. Solo voi mi avete condotto a Bath. Penso e faccio progetti solo per voi. Non ve ne siete accorta? Possibile che non indoviniate i miei desideri? Non avrei atteso neanche questi dieci giorni se avessi conosciuto i vostri sentimenti. Devo andare senza conoscere il mio destino ma tornerò qui o vi seguirò non appena possibile. Una parola, uno sguardo saranno sufficienti a farmi entrare in casa di vostro padre questa sera o mai più."
Author: Jane Austen

32. "... the powerful changes that happen in the life of a disciple never come from the disciple working hard at doing anything. They come from arriving at a place where Jesus is everything, and we are simply overwhelmed with the gift. Sometimes it seems as if God loves us too much. His love goes far beyond our ability to stop being moral, religious, obedient, and victorious, and we just collapse in his arms.Out of the gospel that Jesus is the only Mediator between God and humanity comes a Christian life that looks like Jesus, a life Jesus would recognize. It's a life that looks like Jesus, because Jesus does everything, and all we do is accept his gift. And to accept his gift, we have to give up trying to be Jesus.Out of that discovery comes a Christian life that is free from the tyranny of unnecessary adjectives - even my preferred modified, Jesus-shaped - and simply follows after the One who loves us beyond words or repayment."
Author: Michael Spencer

Perché allora non vogliamo rivolgere il nostro sguardo alle stelle?"
Author: Mikhail Bulgakov
35. "Christianity was not meant to be a weapon or an argument or a show of force or a political tool. Or an act of aggression or coercion. It was never meant to be a cause or a prop for a cause. Or something to pacify and make thousands go to bed happy and unthinking. It was meant to be a challenge, yes, but that challenge to a second life was meant to be laced with kindness. If someone forces you to choose between God is holy and God is love choose God is love because holiness without love translates into tyranny."
Author: Murray Pura
36.

Author: Patrick O'Brian
37. "Saint Thomas Aquinas says, wisely, that the only way to drive out a bad passion is by a stronger good passion. The same is true of thoughts as of passions. When your mind wanders, like a child, your will must bring it back, like a mother.

Author: Peter Kreeft

Akan tetapi, melalui perubahan masyarakat secara keseluruhan—atau pemahaman beberapa kelompok masyarakat dalam jumlah yang mencukupi untuk mengarahkan seluruh masyarakat—pada pemikirannya, nilai-nilainya, akhlaknya, dan komitmennya dengan Islam. Sehingga tumbuh kesadaran dalam jiwa mereka, bahwa menegakkan sistem dan syariat Islam itu merupakan sebuah kewajiban yang harus dilaksanakan."
Author: Sayyid Qutb
41. "Enforced maternity brings into the world wretched infants, whom their parents will be unable to support and who will become the victims of public care or ‘child martyrs'. It must be pointed out that our society, so concerned to defend the rights of the embryo, shows no interest in the children once they are born; it prosecutes the abortionists instead of undertaking to reform that scandalous institution known as ‘public assistance'; those responsible for entrusting the children to their torturers are allowed to go free; society closes its eyes to the frightful tyranny of brutes in children's asylums and private foster homes."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
42. "Beauty is a short-lived tyranny"
Author: Socrates

It's a wonder her children aren't every one of them as mad as priests, if she mangles their wits as she mangles mine."Granny, "I told her, "this is dead serious. I can't relax, no more than any Dog. I'm not shopping for a man. That's the last thing I need."
Author: Tamora Pierce
