1. "Ezekiel and his fellow prophets have become my heroes. They were fearless. They literalized metaphors. They turned their lives into protest pieces. They proved that, in the name of truth, sometimes you can't be afraid to take a left turn from polite society and look absurd."
Author: A.J. Jacobs

Author: Anne Elisabeth Stengl
4. "Those who say marriage is no different to cohabitation are perhaps less sensitive to issues of continuity. Legally and socially, marriage provided us with an framework, struts: as a tradition, it predates history. And yet it is still trivialised as no more than "a piece of paper", or by the perception of it as a kind of country club from which those demarcated as undesirable are excluded. But marriage is not about religion or gender; it is an admission of vulnerability, a commitment to the perpetual evaluation of priorities and a social stabiliser."
Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke

9. "Many people try to find a spiritual path where they do not have to face themselves but where they can still liberate themselves--liberate themselves from themselves, in fact. In truth, this is impossible. We cannot do that. We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to see our gut, our real shit, our most undesirable parts. We have to see that. That is the foundation of warriorship and the basis of conquering fear. We have to face our fear; we have to look at it, study it, work with it, and practice meditation with it."
Author: Chögyam Trungpa
10. "Pozitivisticka psihologija, poput celebrity kulture, nezadrživ nagon da se kupuje i privlacnosti masovne zabave kao sredstva odvracanja pozornosti, pothranjuje se osjecajem nesretnosti što ga izaziva izolacija i gubitak osjecaja zajedništva. Korporativisticka postavka kako se sreca može pronaci kroz prilagodbu i podcinjavanje korporativnoj kulturi okrutan je trik zato što upravo korporativna kultura podržava i hrani u ljudi tu veliku boleštinu i odvojenost od stvarnog kao obilježje kulture opsjene."
Author: Chris Hedges
11. "Give me your honest opinion. I dont want truth with a veil on - I like naked ladies naked."

12. "A writer's brain is full of little gifts, like a piñata at a birthday party. It's also full of demons, like a piñata at a birthday party in a mental hospital. The truth is, it's demons that keep a tortured writer's spirit alive, not Tootsie Rolls. Sure they'll give you a tiny burst of energy, but they won't do squat for your writing. So treat your demons with the respect they deserve, and with enough prescriptions to keep you wearing pants."
Author: Colin Nissan

Author: Elizabeth Cady Stanton
17. "How does she do it? She makes it sound like she is so cut up to be giving them this information, and it's all just bumph out of her head. She never told them ANYTHING. I don't think she's given them the right name of any airfield in Britain except Mainsend and Buscot, which of course were where she was stationed. They could have easily checked. It's all so close to truth, and so glib--her aircraft identification is rather good considering what a fuss she makes about it. It makes me think of the first day I met her, giving those directions in German. So cool and crisp, such authority--suddenly she really was a radio operator, a German radio operator, she was so good at faking it. Or when I told her to be Jamie, how she just suddenly turned into Jamie.This confession of hers is rotten with error..."
Author: Elizabeth Wein

People will insist on giving me books."It was only when he was back in bed that it struck Harry that Dumbledore might not have been quite truthful."

And then he said, "No man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Jesus laid down strict conditions."
Author: Neal A. Maxwell
36. "Because everybody lies. It's part of living in society. Don't get me wrong-I think it's necessary. The last thing anyone wants is to live in a society where total honesty prevails. Can you imagine the conversations? You're short and fat, one person might say, and the other might answer, I know. But you smell bad. It just wouldn't work. So people lie by omission all the time. People will tell you most of the story...and I've learned that the part they neglect to tell you is often the most important part. People hide the truth because they're afraid." -Jo"
Author: Nicholas Sparks

41. "Not one of the orthodox ministers dare preach what he thinks if he knows a majority of his congregation think otherwise. He knows that every member of his church stands guard over his brain with a creed, like a club, in his hand.

Every pulpit is a pillory, in which stands a hired culprit, defending the justice of his own imprisonment."

47. "Being a hangman requires you to take someone else's life based on someone else's judgment, and carry it out on someone else's schedule. The job does not provide the same satisfaction that an ordinary murderer gets from smashing a skull. It robs them of the fulfillment of plunging a knife into someone's throat. In the world of capital punishment, the prisoner's crimes have been sanitized by years of sitting on death row. By then, the execution is a cold and impersonal affair. There is prayer, a noose, and a few last words. The prisoner then experiences a sudden rush of blood to the head. At the end of it all, you have a broken neck and a dead body swinging from the end of a rope. That is it. You don't get to manhandle them with your own hands. That's why the brutes you mention will never be hired. So you see, Vaida, this is not a job for a murderer. It is a job for a humanitarian."
Author: Taona Dumisani Chiveneko

49. "I don't want to help a politician revise the truth."
