4. "Le storie che si scriveranno, i quadri che dipingeranno, le musiche che si comporranno, le stolte pazze e incomprensibili cose che tu dici, saranno pur sempre la punta massima dell'uomo, la sua autentica bandiera [...] quelle idiozie che tu dici saranno ancora la cosa che più ci distingue dalle bestie, non importa se supremamente inutili, forse anzi proprio per questo. Più ancora dell'atomica, dello sputnik, dei razzi intersiderali. E il giorno in cui quelle idiozie non si faranno più, gli uomini saranno diventati dei nudi miserabili vermi come ai tempi delle caverne."
Author: Dino Buzzati

6. "Le mai le joli mai en barque sur le RhinDes dames regardaient du haut de la montagneVous êtes si jolies mais la barque s'éloigneQui donc a fait pleurer les saules riverainsOr des vergers fleuris se figeaient en arrièreLes pétales tombés des cerisiers de maiSont les ongles de celle que j'ai tant aiméeLes pétales flétris sont comme ses paupièresSur le chemin du bord du fleuve lentementUn ours un singe un chien menés par des tziganesSuivaient une roulotte traînée par un âneTandis que s'éloignait dans les vignes rhénanesSur un fifre lointain un air de régimentLe mai le joli mai a paré les ruinesDe lierre de vigne vierge et de rosiersLe vent du Rhin secoue sur le bord les osiersEt les roseaux jaseurs et les fleurs nues des vignes"

8. "Ma come stabilire il momento esatto in cui comincia una storia? Tutto è sempre cominciato già da prima, la prima riga della prima pagina d'ogni romanzo rimanda a qualcosa che è già successo fuori dal libro. Oppure la vera storia è quella che comincia dieci o cento pagine più avanti e tutto ciò che precede è solo un prologo. Le vite degli individui della specie umana formano un intreccio continuo, in cui ogni tentativo di separare un pezzo di vissuto che abbia un senso separatamente dal resto - per esempio, l'incontro di due persone che diventerà decisivo per entrambi - deve tener conto che ciascuno dei due porta con sé un tessuto di ambienti fatti altre persone, e che dall'incontro deriveranno a loro volta altre storie che si separeranno dalla loro storia comune."
Author: Italo Calvino
9. "Si vous voulez vraiment le savoir, j'aurais préféré ne jamais être né. La vie, je trouve ca bien fatigant. Bien sur, à présent la chose est faite, et je ne peux rien y changer. Mais il y a toujours au fond de moi ce regret, que je n'ariverai pas à chasser complètement, et qui gâchera tout. Maintenant, il s'agit de vieillir vite, d'avaler les années le plus vite possible, sans regarder à gauche ni à droitPréface de "La fièvre"
Author: J.M.G. Le Clézio

Author: Jenni Rivera
11. "I vowed that I would never tell anyone of my shame. They say that when you kept a secret, it eats you up inside, but I felt it was better that way. I wanted to appear strong in front of my children and my family. I didn't want anybody to know. And I would maintain my persona as Jenni, the Rivera Rebel who had never lost a fight. But deep down inside I knew I had lost a piece of myself that I would never recover. My soul had been shattered, but to the outside world I did just as I had been taught since I was a little girl; I kept my head up and continued forward. It is, after all, the Rivera way."
Author: Jenni Rivera
12. "This is my formula for the fall of things:we come to a river we always knew we'd have to cross.It ferries the twilight down through fieldworksof corn and half-blown sunflowers.The only sounds, one lost cicada calling to itselfand the piping of a bird that will never have a name.Now tell me there is a pausewhere we know there should be an end;then tell me you too imagined it this waywith our shadows never quite touching the riverand the river never quite reaching the sea."
Author: John Glenday

14. "Perché ha sempre voglia di troppe cose e sempre di quelle che non può avere, di quelle passate o, peggio ancora, di quelle che non arriveranno mai? È una condanna, la sua? A vent'anni comincia a desiderare che tutte quelle voglie spariscano senza lasciare traccia. Deve pur giungere il momento in cui un uomo smette di essere diviso a metà, in cui un uomo si trova esattamente dove vuole stare."
Author: Paolo Giordano
15. "I've got my own moral compass to steer byA guiding star beats a spirit in the skyAnd all the preaching voices -Empty vessels ring so loudAs they move among the crowdFools and thieves are well disguisedIn the temple and market placeLike a stone in the riverAgainst the floods of springI will quietly resistLike the willows in the windOr the cliffs along the oceanI will quietly resistI don't have faith in faithI don't believe in beliefYou can call me faithlessI still cling to hopeAnd I believe in loveAnd that's faith enough for meI've got my own spirit level for balanceTo tell if my choice is leaning up or downAnd all the shouting voicesTry to throw me off my courseSome by sermon, some by forceFools and thieves are dangerousIn the temple and market placeLike a forest bows to winterBeneath the deep white silenceI will quietly resistLike a flower in the desertThat only blooms at nightI will quietly resist"
Author: Rush
16. "Disposons donc notre esprit à prendre en gré tout ce qui arrivera, et surtout que la pensée de notre fin ne nous afflige pas. Il faut faire ses préparatifs pour la mort avant que de songer aux provisions pour la vie"
Author: Seneca

19. "Demain, dès l'aube, à l'heure où blanchit la campagne,Je partirai. Vois-tu, je sais que tu m'attends.J'irai par la forêt, j'irai par la montagne.Je ne puis demeurer loin de toi plus longtemps.Je marcherai les yeux fixés sur mes pensées,Sans rien voir au dehors, sans entendre aucun bruit,Seul, inconnu, le dos courbé, les mains croisées,Triste, et le jour pour moi sera comme la nuit.Je ne regarderai ni l'or du soir qui tombe,Ni les voiles au loin descendant vers Harfleur,Et quand j'arriverai, je mettrai sur ta tombeUn bouquet de houx vert et de bruyère en fleur."
Author: Victor Hugo
20. "If a man crosses a riverand an empty boat collides with his own skiff,Even though he be bad tempered manHe will not become very angry. But if he sees a man in the boat,He will shout at him to steer clear.If the shout is not heard, he will shout again, and yet again, and begin cursing.And all because someone is in the boat.Yet if the boat were empty,He would not be shouting, and not angry.If you can empty your own boatCrossing the river of the world,No one will oppose you, No one will seek to harm you"
Author: Zhuangzi
