2. "La masse (...) hait l'image de l'homme car la masse est incohérente, pousse dans tous les sens à la fois et annule l'effort créateur. Il est certes mauvais que l'homme écrase le troupeau. Mais ne cherche point là le grand esclavage: il se montre quand le troupeau écrase l'homme.(chapitre XI)"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
3. "We always hope for the easy fix: the one simple change that will erase a problem in a stroke. But few things in life work this way. Instead, success requires making a hundred small steps go right - one after the other, no slipups, no goofs, everyone pitching in."
Author: Atul Gawande
4. "Se todo mundo pode escolher recitar as frasezinhas bíblicas que quiser, de acordo com a conveniência, eu também posso. Ao que me consta, quando resolvem criticar os homossexuais, por exemplo, o Antigo Testamento continua valendo; não é dele que retiram a maioria das bobagens que recitam contra os gays? Então, estava decidido. Minha frase seria aquela mesma: 'Olho por olho, dente por dente'."
Author: Camilo Gomes Jr.
5. "Can we really put Ben (hereby representing all men) on such a pedestal? Having tamed those beasts set aside for him, is it not like Ben to seek out that which has historically (regardless of how brief a history) been set aside for women? Woolf criticizes the masculine in her work with the repetition of the phrases uttered by that inconsiderate individual who makes the claim that women cannot paint or write. Is Ben not committing the same crime as that unfortunate character?In stating "[b]etter like this, bitch," Ben employs a word that I would consider to be demasculinizing, rather than feminine. In using the word bitch, he seizes this scholarly investigation and, if you will, pisses on it, claiming it as his own. His statement is an outright challenge. This is a book I stole from women, and I urinated on it. You'd better appreciate my conquest or I will also urinate on you."
Author: Caris O'Malley
6. "All the boundaries of the world disappeared after a good snow. Nathan had always noticed that. The seemingly sturdy, dependable dividing lines between his yard and his neighbor's yard, or the sidewalk and the street, simply disappeared. Erased by white.As if the world were advising him not to put too much faith in such markings. That perhaps these lines had never been entirely real to begin with."
Author: Catherine Ryan Hyde
7. "The Oracle handed her a small, leather bound booklet, about as thick as a pamphlet, and said, "You are a teacher, yes?"It was nice of the Oracle to phrase things in the form of a question and let people feel they were imparting information. "Yes, I am.""Excellent. I know teachers value learning, and this book has very valuable information on gargoyles. If Terak remains part of your life, this you'll want to know."Larissa weighed it in her hand. "This is a very light history."The Oracle arched one fine brow. "Why would I bother with that? This, my dear, is about how gargoyles mate."
Author: Danielle Monsch

11. "A poetic form is essentially a codified pattern of silence. We have a little silence at the end of a line, a bigger one at the end of a stanza, and a huge one at the end of the poem. The semantic weight of the poem tends to naturally distribute itself according to that pattern of silence, paying especial care to the sounds and meanings of the words and phrases that resonate into the little empty acoustic of the line-ending, or the connecting hallway of stanza-break, or the big church of the poem's end."
Author: Don Paterson
12. "I always think incipent miracles surround us, waiting only to see if our faith is strong enough. We won't have to understand it; it will just work, like a beating heart, like love. Really, no matter how frightened and discouraged I may become about the future, I look forward to it. In spite of everything I see all around me every day, I have a shaky assurance that everything will turn out fine. I don't think I'm the only one. Why else would the phrase "everything's all right" ease a deep and troubled place in so many of us? We just don't know, we never know so much, yet we have such faith. We hold our hands over our hurts and lean forward, full of yearning and forgiveness. It is how we keep on, this kind of hope."
Author: Elizabeth Berg
13. "Friedrich Nietzsche, who famously gave us the ‘God is dead' phrase was interested in the sources of morality. He warned that the emergence of something (whether an organ, a legal institution, or a religious ritual) is never to be confused with its acquired purpose: ‘Anything in existence, having somehow come about, is continually interpreted anew, requisitioned anew, transformed and redirected to a new purpose.' This is a liberating thought, which teaches us to never hold the history of something against its possible applications. Even if computers started out as calculators, that doesn't prevent us from playing games on them. (47) (quoting Nietzsche, the Genealogy of Morals)"
Author: Frans De Waal
14. "Art for art's sake is an empty phrase. Art for the sake of the true, art for the sake of the good and the beautiful, that is the faith I am searching for."
Author: George Sand
15. "Avec ma main brûlée j'ai le droit maintenant d'écrire des phrases sur la nature du feu."
Author: Gustave Flaubert

Only you take the windows cry and cause her heart to sing, be the father to the fatherless, our Savior and our King.We will be Your hands we will be Your feet we will run this race for the least of these, in the darkest place we will be Your light, we will be Your light."
Author: Hillsong United
17. "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'"
Author: Isaac Asimov
18. "I was living and dying in all the fibers of what is chewed and digested and in all the fibers that absorb the sun, consuming and digesting. Under the thatched arbor of a restaurant on a river-bank, where Olivia had waited for me, our teeth began to move slowly, with equal rhythm, and our eyes stared into each other's with the intensity of serpents'—serpents concentrated in the ecstasy of swallowing each other in turn, as we were aware, in our turn, of being swallowed by the serpent that digests us all, assimilated ceaselessly in the process of ingestion and digestion, in the universal cannibalism that leaves its imprint on every amorous relationship and erases the lines between our bodies and sopa de frijoles, huachinango a la vera cru-zana, and enchiladas."
Author: Italo Calvino
19. "But we are living in a skeptical and, if I may use the phrase, a thought-tormented age; and sometimes I fear that this new generation, educated or hypereducated as it is, will lack those qualities of humanity, of hospitality, of kindly humor which belonged to an older day.."
Author: James Joyce
20. "But when Christopher mentioned that he and Talbott had been trying to package post-Cold War policy in a single phrase, Kennan said they shouldn't. "Containment" had been a misleading oversimplification; strategy could not be made to fit a "bumper sticker." The president laughed when Talbott told him what had happened: "that's why Kennan's a great diplomat and scholar but not a politician."
Author: John Lewis Gaddis
21. "Yet as the days went by and the pains in my feet subsided, I began to look back on my little adventure with a hint of fondness. When it comes to memories, it seems we all have an editor within who will—if it'll make for a good story—revise the senseless into symbols, or rephrase miseries into warm memories."
Author: Ken Ilgunas
22. "Erase una vez un ángel y un demonio que se enamoraron y osaron imaginar una nueva forma de vivir —una sin masacres, ni gargantas desgarradas, ni hogueras en las que se quemara a los caídos, sin resucitados, ni ejércitos de bastardos, ni niños arrancados de los brazos de sus madres para cumplir su tarea de matar y morir—.Una vez, los amantes yacieron entrelazados en el templo secreto de la luna y soñaron con un mundo que era como un joyero sin joyas —un paraíso a la espera de que ellos lo encontraran y lo llenaran con su felicidad—."
Author: Laini Taylor
23. "The phrase 'teen hottie' literally makes me want to throw up."
Author: Lorde
24. "Cuando te detienes a observar, por ejemplo, el modo como se forman y profieren las palabras, no resisten nuestras frases al desastre de su baboso decorado. Es más complicado y más penoso que la defecación, nuestro esfuerzo mecánico de la conversación. Esa corola de carne abotargada, la boca que se agita silbando, aspira y se debate, lanza toda clase de sonidos viscosos a través de la hedionda barrera de la caries dental, ¡qué castigo! Y, sin embargo, eso es lo que nos exhortan a transponer en ideal. Es difícil. Puesto que no somos sino recintos de tripas tibias y a medio pudrir, siempre tendremos dificultades con el sentimiento. Enamorarse no es nada, permanecer juntos es lo difícil. La basura, en cambio, no pretende durar ni crecer. En ese sentido, somos mucho más desgraciados que la mierda, ese empeño de perseverar en nuestro estado constituye la increíble tortura."
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
25. "To paraphrase Shakespeare's Polonius, you sometimes have to get your hands a little dirty to set things straight."
Author: Lynn Steward

Author: M.E. Thomas
27. "Madoka: I want to erase the tears of all those who trusted in hope. I want them to be left with a smile on their faces."
Author: Magica Quartet

Author: Mark Galli
29. "Wherever he found his speech growing too modern -- which was about every sentence or two -- he ladled in a few such Scriptural phrases as "exceeding sore," "and it came to pass," etc., and made things satisfactory again. "And it came to pass" was his pet. If he had left that out, his Bible would have been only a pamphlet."
Author: Mark Twain

Author: Mary Roach
31. "Sam had a DVD in his hand. He said, "Yesterday I sent Edilio to the power plant to get two things. First, a cache of automatic weapons from the guardhouse. "Machine guns?" "Yeah. Not just for us to have, but to make sure the other side doesn't get them." "Now we have an arms race," Astrid said. Her tone seemed to irritate Sam. "You want me to leave them for Caine?" "I wasn't criticizing, just... you know. Ninth graders with machine guns; it's hard to make that a happy story." Sam relented. He even grinned. "Yeah. The phrase 'ninth graders with machine guns' isn't exactly followed by 'have a nice day'."
Author: Michael Grant
32. "The story of my recent life.' I like that phrase. It makes more sense than 'the story of my life', because we get so many lives between birth and death. A life to be a child. A life to come of age. A life to wander, to settle, to fall in love, to parent, to test our promise, to realize our mortality- and in some lucky cases, to do something after that realization."
Author: Mitch Albom

Author: Mitch Albom
34. "Persistent, flowing through fallen shadows,excavating tunnels, drilling silences,insisting, running under my pillow,brushing past my temples, covering my eyelidswith another, intangible skin made of air,its wandering nations, its drowsy tribesmigrate through the provinces of my body,it crosses, re-crosses under the bridges of my bones,slips into my left ear, spills out from my right,climbs the nape of my neck,turns and turns in my skull,wanders across the terrace of my forehead,conjures visions, scatters them,erases my thoughts one by onewith hands of unwetting water,it evaporates them,black surge, tide of pulse-beats,murmur of water groping forwardrepeating the same meaningless syllable,I hear its sleepwalking deliriumlosing itself in serpentine galleries of echoes,it comes back, drifts off, comes back,endlessly flings itselfoff the edges of my cliffs,and I don't stop fallingand I fall"
Author: Octavio Paz
35. "I can't stop thinking about what he felt like against my body, against my lips. I can't remember anything else, anything before that. And I realize in this moment that I've finally done it. That horrible, awful thing I swore I would never do.The frosting. The cigarettes. The blue glass triangle. The shooting stars. The taste of his mouth on mine in the hall closet. Gone. All I can think about is Sam. Matt is – erased. My whole body is warm and buzzing. Sam is smiling next to me, because of me. And I've never felt so lonely in all my life."
Author: Sarah Ockler

A magical place, an adventurous place, a possible place. Erasers take away the mistakes. Another coat of paint to cover them up. Black and red and purple and blue. Always Blue."
Author: Stacey Jay

Author: Stephen King
41. "Now that you're an adult, you might still feel a pang of guilt when you decline a dinner invitation in favor of a good book. Or maybe you like to eat alone in restaurants and could do without the pitying looks from fellow diners. Or you're told that you're "in your head too much", a phrase that's often deployed against the quiet and cerebral.Or maybe there's another word for such people: thinkers."
Author: Susan Cain
42. "Are you crazy? It's a common phrase, I know. But it means something particular to me: the tunnels, the security screens, the plastic forks, the shimmering, ever-shifting borderline that like all boundaries beckons and asks to be crossed. I do not want to cross it again."
Author: Susanna Kaysen

Author: Suzanne Collins

48. "This self now as I leant over the gate looking down over fields rolling in waves of colour beneath me made no answer. He threw up no opposition. He attempted no phrase. His fist did not form. I waited. I listened. Nothing came, nothing. I cried then with a sudden conviction of complete desertion. Now there is nothing. No fin breaks the waste of this immeasurable sea. Life has destroyed me. No echo comes when I speak, no varied words. This is more truly death than the death of friends, than the death of youth."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "If words had cost money, Tom couldn't have used them more sparingly. The adjectives were purely descriptive, relating to form and colour, and were used to present the objects under consideration, not the young explorer's emotions.

Author: Willa Cather
