2. "Das Meer war ein lebendiges Wesen, so unberechenbar wie ein großer Theaterschauspieler: es konnte ruhig und freundlich sein, konnte sein Publikum mit offenen Armen willkommen heißen und schon im nächsten Moment sein stürmisches Temperament unter Beweis stellen, Menschen herumschleudern, als wollte es sie hinauswerfen, konnte Küsten attackieren und ganze Inseln zerstören. Es hatte verspielte Seiten, es mochte die Menschen, schaukelte Kinder, kippte Luftmatratzen, brachte Windsurfer aus dem Gleichgewicht, ging aber gelegentlich auch Seeleuten helfend zur Hand – alles mit einem verschmitzten Kichern."
Author: Cecelia Ahern

8. "Mr L Prosser was, as they say, only human. In other words he was a carbon-based life form descended from an ape. More specifically he was forty, fat and shabby and worked for the local council. Curiously enough, though he didn't know it, he was also a direct male-line descendant of Genghis Khan, though intervening generations and racial mixing had so juggled his genes that he had no discernible Mongoloid characteristics, and the only vestiges left in Mr L Prosser of his mighty ancestry were a pronounced stoutness about the tum and a predilection for little fur hats."
Author: Douglas Adams
9. "Manchmal denke ich – und es fällt mir schwer das zu sagen -, daß er die Menschen besser kennt als der Chef. Der Chef ist ein Idealist, ein großer Schatz, der das Beste für die Menschen will, ohne zu wissen, mit wem er es eigentlich zu tun hat. Luzifer aber weiß, daß sie lieber Himmel und Erde untergehen lassen würden, als ihr Auto abzumelden."
Author: Harry Mulisch
10. "He's feeling a pull, like gravity, of the approaching TV news. It's a condition of the times, this compulsion to hear how it stands with the world, and be joined to the generality, to a community of anxiety. The habit's grown stronger these past two years; a different scale of news value has been set by monstrous and spectacular scenes. [...] Everyone fears it, but there's also a darker longing in the collective mind, a sickening for self-punishment and a blasphemous curiosity. Just as the hospitals have their crisis plans, so the television networks stand ready to deliver, and their audiences wait. Bigger, grosser next time. Please don't let it happen. But let me see it all the same, as it's happening and from every angle, and let me be among the first to know."
Author: Ian McEwan
11. "Faulheit und Feigheit sind die Ursachen, warum ein so großer Teil der Menschen, nachdem sie die Natur längst von fremder Leitung frei gesprochen, dennoch gerne zeitlebens unmündig bleiben; und warum es anderen so leicht wird, sich zu deren Vormündern aufzuwerfen."
Author: Immanuel Kant
12. "Es ist ein großer Unterschied, ob ich lese zum Genuss und Belebung oder zur Erkenntnis und Belehrung."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

14. "Erik Erikson has commented: Potentially creative men like (Bernard) Shaw build the personal fundament of their work during a self-decreed moratorium, during which they often starve themselves, socially, erotically, and, at last but not least, nutritionally, in order to let the grosser weeds die out, and make way for the growth of their inner garden."
Author: Lewis Hyde
15. "We can tell much by what we have already willing discarded along the pathway of discipleship. It is the only pathway where littering is permissible, even encouraged. In the early stages, the debris left behind includes the grosser sins of commission. Later debris differs; things begin to be discarded which have caused the misuse or underuse of our time and talent."
Author: Neal A. Maxwell
16. "True beauty is to be found in natural forms. The more we magnify, and the closer we examine, the works of Artifice, the grosser and stupider they seem. But if we magnify the natural world it only becomes more intricate and excellent."
Author: Neal Stephenson

20. "Der PantherIm Jardin des Plantes, ParisSein Blick ist vom Vorübergehn der Stäbeso müd geworden, dass er nichts mehr hält.Ihm ist, als ob es tausend Stäbe gäbeund hinter tausend Stäben keine Welt.Der weiche Gang geschmeidig starker Schritte,der sich im allerkleinsten Kreise dreht,ist wie ein Tanz von Kraft um eine Mitte,in der betäubt ein großer Wille steht.Nur manchmal schiebt der Vorhang der Pupillesich lautlos auf -. Dann geht ein Bild hinein,geht durch der Glieder angespannte Stille -und hört im Herzen auf zu sein.6.11.1902, Paris"
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
21. "Neueste VäterweisheitZieh nun also in die Welt,Tue beharrlich, was dir gefällt,Werde keiner Gefühle Beute,Meide sorglich arme Leute,Werde kein gelehrter Klauber,Wissenschaft ist fauler Zauber,Sei für Rothschild statt für Ranke,Nimm den Main und laß die Panke,Nimm den Butt und laß die Flunder,Geld ist Glück, und Kunst ist Plunder,Vorwärts auf der schlechtsten Kragge,Wenn nur unter großer Flagge.Pred'ge Tugend, pred'ge Sitte,Millionär ist dann das dritte,Quäl dich nicht mit »wohlerzogen«.Vorwärts mit den Ellenbogen,Und zeig jedem jeden Falles:»Du bist nichts, und ich bin alles.«"
Author: Theodor Fontane
22. "There is a willow grows aslant the brook that shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream; therewith fantastic garlands did she make of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples that the liberal shepherds give a grosser name, but our cold maids do dead men's fingers call them. There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds clamb'ring to hang, an envious sliver broke; when down her weedy trophies and herself fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide and, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up; which time she chanted snatches of old lauds, as one incapable of her own distress, or like a creature native and indued unto that element; but long it could not be till that her garments, heavy with their drink, pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious lay to muddy death."
Author: William Shakespeare
