4. "A distant love that waits to be together, is by far the most difficult relationship. It's like lighting a candle, and adoring the long flame and robust glow. Until time sets in like wax, overflowing deeper and deeper into the wick, leaving a sparse flame struggling to live. This is where most distant relationships fade, with the wax smothering the flame. This kind of relationship takes patience, hope, unconditional love, trust and strength, all centered around God. If the flame endures to the end, and the two come together, only then will it feel as if the candle was tipped and all the wax came pouring out, when the flame is revived, long and glowing again."
Author: Anthony Liccione

There's no variation. It just sounds like static." "And that's why I like it," she said. "It sounds like static is supposed to sound."

Author: Donna Woolfolk Cross

Author: Herman Melville
19. "Why did the poor poet of Tennessee, upon suddenly receiving two handfuls of silver, deliberate whether to buy him a coat, which he sadly needed, or invest his money in a pedestrian trip to Rockaway Beach?

Why did the old Persians hold the sea holy?"

Or you will be dead."

Obvious decisions (robust to error) require no more than a single reason."

35. "Todo cansa en esta vida, hasta la felicidad, me dijeron una vez. Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así.Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así. Solo era una pequeña hipótesis de que el encanto en la vida es sufrir un poco para regresar a la paz y valorarla. Los momentos de infelicidad son el combustible de la felicidad. En lo personal, me gustan las relaciones largas con todos sus defectos y repentinas pero momentáneas faltas de adrenalina. Al final es lo mejor. El test del tiempo siempre arroja que es mucho más satisfactorio lo que obtienes de relaciones largas robustecidas a causa de los problemas y sus maravillosas reconciliaciones, que lo que te pueden dar los fragmentados y espaciados fogonazos de la soltería."
Author: Pedro Suárez Vértiz

43. "What was the nature of the universe into which she had been born? Why did it exist at all? If it had a purpose, what was it? These seemed to her the only questions worth exploring. And the only valid technique evolved by humans for exploring such questions was the scientific method, a robust and self-correcting search for the truth. Yet it had become obvious to her since about the age of twelve that science as it had progressed so far – physics, chemistry, biology, all the rest – had only inched towards grappling with the true questions, the fundamentals. Those questions had only been addressed by theologians and philosophers, it seemed to her. Unfortunately, their answers were a mush of doubt, self-delusion and flummery that had probably done more harm than good. And yet that was all there was."
Author: Terry Pratchett
44. "La cabaña de una bruja es un objeto arquitectónico muy preciso. Exactamente no es que se la construya, sino que se va acumulando a lo largo de los años conforme se van uniendo las distintas áreas de reparación, como un calcetín hecho enteramente de remiendos. La chimenea se retuerce como un sacacorchos. El techo de paja y cañizo es tan viejo que pequeños pero robustos árboles crecen en él, todos los suelos hacen pendiente, y de noche cruje como un velero en una tormenta. Si al menos dos paredes no están apuntaladas con alguna que otra viga, entonces no es una auténtica cabaña de bruja, sino meramente el hogar de una vieja medio chocha que lee las hojas del té y habla con su gato."
Author: Terry Pratchett
45. "Poets have tried to describe Ankh-Morpork. They have failed. Perhaps it's the sheer zestful vitality of the place, or maybe it's just that a city with a million inhabitants and no sewers is rather robust for poets, who prefer daffodils and no wonder. So let's just say that Ankh-Morpork is as full of life as an old cheese on a hot day, as loud as a curse in a cathedral, as bright as an oil slick, as colourful as a bruise and as full of activity, industry, bustle and sheer exuberant busyness as a dead dog on a termite mound."
Author: Terry Pratchett

Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,Those of mechanics, each one singing his as itshould be blithe and strong,The carpenter singing his as he measures his plankor beam,The mason singing his as he makes ready for work,or leaves off work,The boatman singing what belongs to him in hisboat, the deckhand singing on the steamboatdeck,The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, thehatter singing as he stands,The wood-cutter's song, the ploughboy's on hisway in the morning, or at noon intermissionor at sundown,The delicious singing of the mother, or of theyoung wife at work, or of the girl sewing orwashing,Each singing what belongs to him or her and tonone else,The day what belongs to the day — at night theparty of young fellows, robust, friendly,Singing with open mouths their strong melodioussongs."
Author: Walt Whitman
50. "I dream'd in a dream I saw a city invincible to the attacks of thewhole of the rest of the earth,I dream'd that was the new city of Friends,Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love, it led the rest,It was seen every hour in the actions of the men of that city,And in all their looks and words."
Author: Walt Whitman
