1. "Foi então que tudo vacilou. O mar trouxe um sopro espesso e ardente. Pareceu-me que o céu se abria em toda a sua extensão, deixando chover fogo. Todo o meu ser se retesou e crispei a mão sobre o revólver. O gatilho cedeu, toquei o ventre polido da coronha e foi aí, no barulho ao mesmo tempo seco e ensurdecedor, que tudo começou. Sacudi o suor e o sol. Compreendi que destruíra o equilíbrio do dia, o silêncio excepcional de uma praia onde havia sido feliz. Então atirei quatro vezes ainda num corpo inerte em que as balas se enterravam sem que se desse por isso. E era como se desse quatro batidas secas na porta da desgraça."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "We're in luck. This place looks like it's terraformed. There must be sensors for checking the air quality outside." "There are," she agrees. "But the electrical surge fried them. We don't need them, though. It's safe.""Glad you're so sure, Miss LaRoux," I retort before I can stop myself. "I think I'd rather an instrument told me so. Not that I don't trust your extensive training." Her eyes narrow, and if looks could kill, then toxic atmospheres would be the least of my problems."

9. "Feeling inspired, I grabbed one of Jay's cookbooks from the kitchen shelf and flicked through until I found a recipe for something I recognised. Lasagna. That was just pasta, and pasta was easy, right? Trying not to be put off by the list of ingredients longer than my small intestine, I scanned the instructions. Chop onions… I could do that. Brown mince…trickier but manageable. Probably. Make a roux in the usual way… I sighed, shut the book with a snap and went off to make dinner in my usual way: pierce film; bung in microwave; wait for bell."

11. "Falar do passado é o mais fácil que há, está tudo escrito, é só repetir, papaguear, conferir pelos livros o que os alunos [escrevem] nos livros ou nas chamadas orais, ao passo que falar de um presente que a cada minuto nos rebenta na cara, falar dele todos os dias do ano ao mesmo tempo que se vai navegando pelo rio da História acima até às origens, ou lá perto, esforça-nos por entender cada vez melhor a cadeia de acontecimentos que nos trouxe aonde estamos agora, isso é outro cantar, dá muito trabalho, exige constância de aplicação, há que manter sempre a corda tensa, sem quebra."
Author: José Saramago
12. "O rouxinol nega-se a aninhar na gaiola, para que a escravidão não seja o destino da sua cria."
Author: Kahlil Gibran

All men seek immortality in their own way, either through a legacy of children carrying their name and genetic material, through architecture, through science, and this now is simply my search for a legacy like no other." - Asylum, Madeleine Roux"
Author: Madeleine Roux
14. "Há muitas pessoas que não conseguem fazer escolhas nem tomar decisões. Preferem ser conduzidas pela vida, encostando-se às circunstâncias, aproveitando o melhor que a sorte trouxer, e depois logo se vê. Mas que o faz geralmente acaba por cair. Podemos escolher passar pela vida ou deixar que a vida passe por nós, podemos ser proactivos ou reactivos, podemos arriscar ou adiar, mas tudo isso tem muito mais a ver com a educação e com o carácter de cada um, portanto talvez nem sequer seja uma questão de opção."
Author: Margarida Rebelo Pinto
15. "Orfeu rebelde, canto como sou:Canto como um possessoQue na casca do tempo, a canivete,Gravasse a fúria de cada momento;Canto, a ver se o meu canto comprometeA eternidade do meu sofrimento.Outros, felizes, sejam os rouxinóis... Eu ergo a voz assim, num desafio:Que o céu e a terra, pedras conjugadasDo moinho cruel que me tritura,Saibam que há gritos como há nortadas,Violências famintas de ternura.Bicho instintivo que adivinha a morteNo corpo dum poeta que a recusa,Canto como quem usa Os versos em legítima defesa.Canto, sem perguntar à MusaSe o canto é de terror ou de beleza."
Author: Miguel Torga

Author: Nicola Barker

22. "Menyara's Creole accent was as thick as his mother's jar of refrigerated roux, and Nick loved the sound of it.He wasn't quite as pleased with his own. No matter how hard he tried to hide his accent, it always came out in certain words like "praline", "etouffee", "pecan", and any time he lost his temper. You could easily tell how mad he was by how Cajun he sounded. And if he started spewing all Cajun words, duck."
