Their mouths clung to each other and they shut their eyes."

3. "Demasiados eruditos piensan que la investigación es solo una búsqueda cerebral. Si no hacemos nada con el conocimiento que obtenemos, entonces hemos desperdiciado nuestros estudios.

Así que si no se van a extraer conclusiones, bien puedes dejar la información en los textos.-Jasnah Kholin-"
Author: Brandon Sanderson

7. "One of the two owners, the man who had been sitting in the front room, was stretched out in there asleep, stockinged-toes pointed at the ceiling, one hand backed defensively against his eyes to ward off the light. He'd taken off his vest and shoes, and that strap that wasn't straight enough to be a suspender-strap was dangling now around one of the knobs at the foot of the bed. It ended in a holster, with a black, cross-grained slab of metal protruding from it. Turner couldn't take his eyes off it, while the long seconds that to him were minutes toiled by.That meant out, that black slab, more surely than any door. He had to have it. More than that, it meant a continuance of out, for so long as he had it. And he wanted out with all the desperate longing of all trapped things, blindly scratching, clawing their way through a maze to the open. To the open where the equal chance is."
Author: Cornell Woolrich
8. "The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for life. For this task, it has a rudimentary nervous system. When it finds its spot and takes root, it doesn't need its brain anymore so it eats it!"
Author: Daniel Dennett

Author: Ðorde Balaševic
11. "Ja vec godinama znam ko sam. Put do zvezda je samo etapa kružnog puta do sebe i ako znaš precicu nema potrebe da se puno lomataš po bespucima. Ne bato. Stigao si cim kreneš. Cilj nosiš skriven pod kaputom istetoviran na grudima kao metu. I eto ti... U tome je tajna. U tome je jedini trik."

12. "Ko li ce goreti u Paklu?Oni što prodaju, oni što kupuju, ili oni što to gledaju a cute? Uh, davo ce raditi u tri smene kadmu naide naša generacija... Još malo pa nestalo...Na Velikom Balkanskom Vašaru trguje se robusno, bez cenjkanja, nacinom koji je još AtilaHun doveo do perfekcije, ali mnogi nisu tu samo iz koristi...O, nikako...Mnogi su tu iz cistog zadovoljstva...Ovo je narod Nebeskih Ratnika, Granicara Hrišcanstva, narod vojnicki toliko superioran, dapar poslednjih ratova vodi sam protiv sebe, u nedostatku dostojnih protivnika...Pa slušaj, pedeset godina apstinencije teško je palo?Zardali oklopi vitezova poraženih na Kosovu Polju žestoko su ulubljeni od silnog busanja ugrudi..."
Author: Ðorde Balaševic
13. "A Nasrudin 'joke' may at first seem unfunny, or pointless, but will after study change and begin to reveal itself: you have uncovered the first level of meaning, and will soon observe your thought patterns shift as you watch them; you will have made the first crack in the wall of assumptions, the conditioned thinking (designated 'The Old Villain') which imprisons each and every one of us, the worst of which is to think that the visible world is all there is, that a man's or a mouse's view of life is the true one."
Author: Doris Lessing

16. "Aos activos falta, habitualmente, a actividade superior: refiro-me à individual. Eles são activos enquanto funcionários, comerciantes, eruditos, isto é, como seres genéricos, mas não enquanto pessoas perfeitamente individualizadas e únicas; neste aspecto, são indolentes. A infelicidade das pessoas activas é a sua actividade ser quase sempre um tanto absurda. Não se pode, por exemplo, perguntar ao banqueiro, que junta dinheiro, qual o objectivo da sua incansável actividade: ela é irracional. Os homens activos rebolam como rebola a pedra, em conformidade com a estupidez da mecânica."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

21. "The Thing cannot be described - there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled.If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful."
Author: H.P. Lovecraft
22. "If a pot can multiply. One day Nasrudin lent his cooking pots to a neighbour, who was giving a feast. The neighbour returned them, together with one extra one – a very tiny pot. 'What is this?' asked Nasrudin. 'According to law, I have given you the offspring of your property which was born when the pots were in my care,' said the joker. Shortly afterwards Nasrudin borrowed his neighbour's pots, but did not return them. The man came round to get them back. 'Alas!' said Nasrudin, 'they are dead. We have established, have we not, that pots are mortal?'."
Author: Idries Shah

25. "Eruditos de Oriente y Occidente consagraron heroicamente sus existencias profesionales a poner a disposición del público el material literario y filosófico sufi, utilizando para ello sus propias disciplinas.

Author: Idries Shah
26. "I think it was the beginning of Mrs. Bond's unquestioning faith in me when she saw me quickly enveloping the cat till all you could see of him was a small black and white head protruding from an immovable cocoon of cloth. He and i were now facing each other, more or less eyeball to eyeball, and George couldn't do a thing about it. As i say, I rather pride myself on this little expertise, and even today my veterinary colleagues have been known to remark, "Old Herriot may be limited in many respects, but by God he can wrap a cat."
Author: James Herriot

31. "It had been along time since I breached the surface of the world above. My parents wouldn't allow it. So as far as I knew, the survivors that remained were savages. I'd seen a few things before our colony was built and most of the inhabitants left ran wildly through the bare, desert terrain, filth covering them from head to toe, bones protruding their leathery skin, and foam dripping from their mouths in search of one thing…Nourishment."
Author: Lauren Hammond
32. " classical values make me advocate the triplet of erudition, elegance, and courage; against modernity's phoniness, nerdiness, and philistinism...many philistines reduce my ideas to an opposition of technology when in fact I am opposing the naive blindness to it's side affects - the fragility criterion. I'd rather be unconditional about ethical and conditional about technology than the the reverse."
Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
33. "He tugged on an imaginary rope,somewhere on the level of his ear, and then jerked his neck to one side, tongue protruding, eyes bulging. As quick pantomimes went, it was disturbing. And then he let go of the rope and smiled his familiar grin.Would you like some potato salad?"
Author: Neil Gaiman

36. "If there were no internal propensity to unite, even at a prodigiously rudimentary level — indeed in the molecule itself — it would be physically impossible for love to appear higher up, with us, in hominized form. . . . Driven by the forces of love, the fragments of the world seek each other so that the world may come into being."
Author: Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
37. "Kada me konacno pustio, prišao mi je jedan od pomocnih trenera pokušavajuci me utješiti. - Graham te je prilicno izgnjavio, je li? — rekao je.Jedva sam izustio »da«.— To je dobar znak — naglasio je on. — Kad nešto zezneš, a nitko ti ništa ne kaže, to znaci da su od tebe odustali.Tu lekciju sam zapamtio za citav život. Kada si svjestan da ciniš nešto loše, a nitko se više ne trudi da te opomene, stvari ne stoje kako valja. Ako ih i ne želiš slušati, tvoji kriticari su najcešce oni koji ti žele reci da te još uvijek vole, da se brinu za tebe i da žele tvoj napredak."
Author: Randy Pausch
38. "She quickly took a drink to hide her mouth. That mannerism had never changed: whenever Sarah was embarrassed, after she'd told a joke and was waiting for the laughter, or when she was afraid she'd talked too much, she would go for her mouth as if to cover nakedness - with Cokes or popsicles as a child, with drinks or cigarettes now. Maybe all the years of splayed, protruding teeth, and then of braces, had made her mouth the most vulnerable part of her for life."
Author: Richard Yates

Nico's recently had his face tattooed to look like the Kabuki-made-up Gene Simmons of the pre-FUS rock band Kiss. He wears his hair in bright blond spikes. He also wears the body of a cow suit without the head, the rubber udders protruding at crotch level, lending the getup a rather multipenised look."
Author: Ryan Boudinot
40. "Do they see the lethal insanity of a race to the brink of oblivion, and then over the edge? Apparently not. If they did, surely they wouldn't be racing to begin with. Or is it a simple failure of imagination? One doesn't like to think such a rudimentary failing could bring about the end, yet..."
Author: Stephen King
41. "...he plundered the living treasure of those shelves. There was Burton's marvelous Anatomy, his staggering erudition never smelling of the dust or of the lamp...There was the dark tremendous music of Sir Thomas Browne, and Hooker's sounding and tremendous passion made great by genius and made true by faith."
Author: Thomas Wolfe
42. "Just after my mother died, I grabbed hold of my Divergence like it was a hand outstretched to save me. I needed that word to tell me who I was when everything else was coming apart around me. But now I'm wondering if I need it anymore, if we ever really need these words, "Dauntless," "Erudite," "Divergent," "Allegiant," or if we can just be friends or lovers or siblings, defined instead by the choices we make and the love and loyalty that binds us."
Author: Veronica Roth
43. "Maybe Dauntless was formed with good intentions, with the right ideals and the right goals. But it has strayed far from them. And the same is true of Erudite, I realize. A long time ago, Erudite pursued knowledge and ingenuity for the sake of doing good. Now they pursue knowledge and ingenuity with greedy hearts. I wonder if the other factions suffer from the same problem. I have not thought about it before."
Author: Veronica Roth
44. "And he's right to say that every faction loses something when it gains a virtue: the Dauntless, brave but cruel; the Erudite, intelligent but vain; the Amity, peaceful but passive; the Candor, honest but inconsiderate; the Abnegation, selfless but stifling."
Author: Veronica Roth
45. "It's my choice now, no matter what the test says. Abnegation. Dauntless. Erudite. Divergent."
Author: Veronica Roth
46. "Arrogance is one of the flaws in the Erudite heart -- I know. It is often in mine."
Author: Veronica Roth

Author: Veronica Roth
48. "Those who blamed aggression formed Amity.'…‘Those who blamed ignorance became the Erudite.'…‘Those who blamed duplicity created Candor.'…‘Those who blamed selfishness made Abnegation.'…‘And those who blamed cowardice were the Dauntless."
Author: Veronica Roth
49. "Tris: Wait. So you have no idea what my aptitude is?Tori: Yes and No. My conclusion is that you display equal aptitude for Abnegation, Dauntless and Erudite. People who get this kind of result are..are called...Divergent."
Author: Veronica Roth
50. "And yet I am happy. Yes, happy. I swear. I swear that I am happy...What does it matter that I am a bit cheap, a bit foul, and that no one appreciates all the remarkable things about me—my fantasy, my erudition, my literary gift…I am happy that I can gaze at myself, for any man is absorbing—yes, really absorbing! ... I am happy—yes, happy!"
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
