1. "When the morning light came into the room it found them curled together in a nest of red and white sheets. It revealed also marks, all over the pale cool skin: handprints around the narrow waist, sliding impressions from delicate strokes, like weals, raised rosy discs where his lips had rested lightly. He cried out, when he saw her, that he had hurt her. No, she said, she was part icewoman, it was her nature, she had an icewoman's skin that responded to every touch by blossoming red. Sasan still stared, and repeated, I have hurt you. No, no, said Fiammarosa, they are the marks of pleasure, pure pleasure. I shall cover them up, for only we ourselves should see our happiness.But inside her a little melted pool of water slopped and swayed where she had been solid and shining."
Author: A.S. Byatt

4. "Unlike Rosa, I can see no divine purpose behind the tangle of this existence, no ordering hand. It is all a mystery, or more accurately, a mess. There are no heroes or villains, no saviors or demons or angels. Only those who have died and those of us who, for whatever reason, have survived. None of this will keep me from believing in God. I believe in Him, I just don't know that I will ever have faith in Him."
Author: Brady Udall

Author: C.J. Duggan
6. "No volverás a mirar tu reloj, ese objeto inservible que mide falsamente el tiempo acordado a la vanidad humana, esas manecillas que marcan tediosamente las largas horas inventadas para engañar el verdadero tiempo, el tiempo que corre con la velocidad insultante, mortal, que ningún reloj puede medir. Una vida, un siglo, cincuenta años: ya no te será posible imaginar esas medidas mentirosas, ya no te será posible tomar entre las manos ese polvo sin cuerpo."
Author: Carlos Fuentes
7. "Simplemente, considero que la política es la actuación pública de pasiones privadas. Incluyendo, sobre todo, acaso, la pasión amorosa. Pero las pasiones son formas arbitrarias de la conducta y la política es una disciplina."
Author: Carlos Fuentes

Author: Cynthia Ozick
9. "De acuerdo, tienes razón. No me cae bien, en primer lugar porque no la conozco, así que me resulta más fácil, en segundo lugar porque me esfuerzo por imaginármela lo más asquerosa posible, en tercer lugar porque lo consigo, y en cuarto lugar: pues sí, porque ella me quita lo que me queda de ti, los restos escritos, los vestigios de esperanza. Esperanza de..., de..., ni idea de qué, simplemente esperanza."
Author: Daniel Glattauer
10. "I may not read tea leaves or palms, my lady, but it is easy enough to read faces. Yours is a questioning face, always looking for answers, always seeking the truth, for yourself and for others." I smiled at her. "I think that is a very polite way of saying I am curious as a cat. And we all know what happened to the cat—curiosity killed her." Rosalie took the last slice of cake onto her plate. "Yes, but you forget the most important thing about the little cat," she said, giving me a wise nod. "She had eight lives left to live."
Author: Deanna Raybourn
11. "Quando se segue um caminho, rumo a uma mudança na nossa vida, não vale a pena parar para cheirar as rosas, digam os famosos livros de auto-ajuda o que disserem. As rosas têm espinhos, e cheirá-las pode ter muito maus resultados. Uma pessoa pode auto-mutilar-se ao fim de anos sem o fazer e acabar por passar a noite no chão da casa de banho, demasiado fraca para se mexer. Parar para cheirar as rosas pode enterrar essa pessoa debaixo de toneladas de memórias de tempos e de coisas que fez que preferia esquecer. Pode acabar por se lembrar que tem um propósito na vida e obrigar-se a voltar ao plano inicial, sabendo, no entanto, que, se não se tivesse distraído com as rosas, já poderia ter alcançado os seus objectivos."
Author: Dorothy Koomson
12. "El peligro se manifiesta de tantas maneras distintas, Peter. Una mente brillante puede ser tan peligrosa como la más poderosa arma."
Author: Gemma Malley
13. "You took a life and the theft went unpunished. God didn't strike you down. The sky didn't fall. The morning after, you turned on the faucet and water still came out... It was still good when you raised your arm for a cab and one came towards you out of the flow like magic. You did things that were supposed to end you and found they were only things that changed you. It was a disappointment and a revelation and a bereavement and a new thrilling nudity. It was the basic prosaic obscenity: You kept going."
Author: Glen Duncan
14. "Mamá sabía ser alegre. Mamá sabía ser temerosa. Mamá sabía olvidar fácilmente. Y, sin embargo tenía buena memoria. Mamá me daba con la puerta en la narices, y sin embargo, me admitía en su baño. A veces mamá se me perdía, pero su instinto me encontraba. Cuando yo rompía vidrios, mamá ponía la masilla. A veces se instalaba en el error, aunque a su alrededor hubiera sillas suficientes. Aun cuando se encerraba en sí misma, para mí siempre estaba abierta. Temía las corrientes de aire y sin embargo no paraba de levantar el viento. Gastaba, y no le gustaba pagar impuestos. Yo era el revés de su medalla. Cuando mamá jugaba corazones ganaba siempre."
Author: Günter Grass
15. "Bueno. Muéstrame a una persona que cree que sabe lo que es "bueno" y probablemente seré capaz de mostrarte a una persona horrorosa. Muéstrame a una persona que realmente sabe lo que es "bueno" y te mostraré que casi nunca usa la palabra."
Author: Idries Shah
16. "El infierno de los vivos no es algo que será; hay uno, es aquél que existe ya aquí, el infierno que habitamos todos los días, que formamos estando juntos. Dos maneras hay de no sufrirlo. La primera es fácil para muchos: aceptar el infierno y volverse parte de él hasta el punto de no verlo más. La segunda es peligrosa y exige atención y aprendizaje continuos: buscar y saber reconocer quién y qué, en medio del infierno, no es infierno, y hacerlo durar, y darle espacio."
Author: Italo Calvino
17. "You see, I am a very prosaic, unromantic, sensible sort of fellow myself; and I have always had my heart set on finding the most sensible, prudent, level-headed wife in the world. But, on the other hand, it is very important to me that she possess one very particular flaw: she must have no sense whatsoever where I myself am concerned. She would only have to take one look at me and - no matter what her steadiness of mind - she would lose it in the space of seconds... Just lately, I have sometimes thought I may have found what I have always wanted. But just lately I have also noticed she has developed a most irritating habit of looking at the ground whenever we are together. Do you think she could try to overcome it? Well, Charlotte, are you going to look at me now?"
Author: Jane Austen

Author: Joan Didion
21. "Bez urážky lze importovat jenom myšlenky myšlenkami, ne myšlenky zbranemi. Každý násilný conquistador pokládá obyvatele dobývaného území za ménecenné. Conquistou jim to dává najevo. Je-li tu však neco ménecenného, pak jsou to myšlenky, které se umejí prosadit jenom zbranemi."
Author: Josef Škvorecký

Author: Magali Pool
28. "Así como localizamos en el cuerpo de una persona todas las posibilidades de su vida, el recuerdo de los seres que conoce y a quienes acaba de dejar, o a los que va a unirse, así yo, si al enterarme por Francisca de que la señora de Guermantes iría a pie a almorzar a casa de la princesa de Parma, la veía, a eso de mediodía, bajar de su casa con su traje de raso claro, sobre el cual su rostro era del mismo matiz, como una nube a la puesta del sol, lo que ante mí veía eran todos los placeres del barrio de Saint-Germain contenidos en aquel pequeño volumen como en una concha, entre aquellas bruñidas valvas de sonrosado nácar."

The shadows continued up the bank, until they included us"

She turned to bid farewell to Lady Rosalind, but she seemed to havedisappeared.Numbly, she descended the front steps toward a waiting Rothbury, who only had eyes for the Devines'front door, looking quite like he wanted to murder someone."Perfection, dear brother," Rosalind proclaimed, while peeking out the little window next to the door."Utter perfection."Slipping a finger inside his cravat to loosen it a bit, Tristan craned his neck from side to side, easing thebuilding tension. "If he kills me, I'll see to it that you get hanged for murder as well."

35. "Unless one is wealthy there is no use in being a charming fellow.  Romance is the privilege of the rich, not the profession of the unemployed.  The poor should be practical and prosaic.  It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.  These are the great truths of modern life which Hughie Erskine never realised."
Author: Oscar Wilde

"Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente,y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te toca.Parece que los ojos se te hubieran voladoy parece que un beso te cerrara la boca..Como todas las cosas están llenas de mi almaemerges de las cosas, llena del alma mía.Mariposa de sueño, te pareces a mi alma,y te pareces a la palabra melancolía..Me gustas cuando callas y estás como distante.Y estás como quejándote, mariposa en arrullo.Y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te alcanza:Déjame que me calle con el silencio tuyo..Déjame que te hable también con tu silencioclaro como una lámpara, simple como un anillo.Eres como la noche, callada y constelada.Tu silencio es de estrella, tan lejano y sencillo..Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente.Distante y dolorosa como si hubieras muerto.Una palabra entonces, una sonrisa bastan.Y estoy alegre, alegre de que no sea cierto."
Author: Pablo Neruda

"I've known Kyrian for over two thousand years, and I can honesty say that I have never once caught him naked in his living room." The door closed behind them without Ash or Nick touching it- something that always unnerved Nick when Ash did it. "Besides, Rosa's still here. I know he's not walking around bare-assed with her on duty."
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Not that it wouldn't be fun to watch his face if Rosalie showed up to help. But since Rosalie is supposed to be across the country attending college, I guess that's not the best idea. Too bad."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
45. "I climbed into the honey wagon with my hair uncombed, with May handing me buttered toast and orange juice through the window and Rosaleen sticking in thermoses of water, both of them practically running alongside the truck while August rolled out of the driveway.

49. "The arrogant elimination of the Djaouts of our world must nerve us to pursue our own combative doctrine, namely: that peaceful cohabitation on this planet demands that while the upholders of any creed are free to adopt their own existential absolutes, the right of others to do the same is thereby rendered implicit and sacrosanct. Thus the creed of inquiry, of knowledge and exchange of ideas, must be upheld as an absolute, as ancient and eternal as any other."
