11. "I found a brief piece of by Antonio Vivaldi around this time which became my ‘Pinhead Mood Music'. Called Al Santo Sepolcro (At The Holy Sepulchre), it opens more like a piece of modern orchestral music, and although it it moves toward Vivaldi's familiar harmonies, there is always the threat that it will fall back into dissonance. The piece progresses in an exquisite agony, poised on a knife edge between beauty and disfigurement, joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain. Perfect."
Author: Doug Bradley

15. "The wilderness should be preserved for political reasons. We may need it someday not only as a refuge from excessive industrialism but also as a refuge from authoritarian government, from political oppression. Grand Canyon, Big Bend, Yellowstone, and the High Sierras may be required to function as bases for guerrilla warfare against tyranny...The value of wilderness, on the other hand, as a base for resistance to centralized domination is demonstrated by recent history. In Budapest and Santo Domingo, for example, popular revolts were easily and quickly crushed because an urbanized environment gives the advantage to the power with technological equipment. But in Cuba, Algeria, and Vietnam the revolutionaries, operating in mountain, desert, and jungle hinterlands with the active or tacit support of a thinly dispersed population, have been able to overcome or at least fight to a draw official establishment forces equipped with all of the terrible weapons of twentieth century militarism."
Author: Edward Abbey
16. "Há uma piada italiana muito engraçada sobre um homem pobre que vai todos os dias à igreja rezar diante da estátua de um grande santo, implorando: «Querido santo, por favor, por favor, por favor... dá-me a graça de ganhar a lotaria.»Este lamento continua durante meses. Por fim, a estátua exasperada ganha vida, olha para ele e diz com um ar fatigado: «Meu filho, por favor, por favor, por favor... compra um bilhete.»"
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
17. "And yet every so often, the heart of America, shuddering with indignation, sends a nervous spasm through the gentle back of the Andes, and tumultuous shock waves assault the surface of the land. Three times the cuppola of proud Santo Domingo has collapsed from on high to the rhythm of broken bones and its worn walls have opened and fallen too. But the foundations they rest on are unmoved, the great blocks of the Temple of the Sun exhibit their gray stone indifferently; however colossal the disaster befalling its oppressor, not one of its huge rocks shifts from its place."
Author: Ernesto Guevara
18. "El libro en manos santas, es objeto santo; pero el libro santo en manos profanas, en profano se convierte."
Author: Federico Andahazi
19. "Foi ele, esse iluminado de olhos cintilantes e cabelos desgrenhados, que um dia saltou dentro de mim e gritou basta! Num momento em que meu ser civilizado, bem penteado, bem vestido e ponderado dizia sim a uma injustiça. Foi ele quem amou a mulher e a colocou num pedestal e lhe ofertou uma flor. Foi ele quem sofreu quando jovem a emoção de um desencanto, e chorou quando menino a perda de um brinquedo, debatendo-se na camisa-de-força com que tolhiam o seu protesto. Este ser engasgado, contido, subjugado pela ordem iníqua dos racionais é o verdadeiro fulcro da minha verdadeira natureza, o cerne da minha condição de homem, herói e pobre-diabo, paria, negro, judeu, índio, santo, poeta, mendigo e débil mental. Viramundo! Que um dia há de rebelar-se dentro de mim, enfim liberto, poderoso na sua fragilidade, terrível na pureza de sua loucura."
Author: Fernando Sabino

Author: Fernando Vallejo
21. "Deus está morto mas seu espírito santo ainda nos assombra."
Author: Filipe Russo
22. "Somos todos mais místicos do que acreditamos ou queremos crer (...). Temos visto mais do que deixamos transparecer, até para nós mesmos. Seja em momentos de beleza ou dor, seja por meio de alguma reviravolta sutil em nossa vida, ao menos vislumbramos o que cegou os santos; só que, ao contrário dos santos, seguimos em frente como se nada tivesse acontecido. Seguir em frente ciente de que algo aconteceu, apesar de não ter certeza do que foi, nem do que fazer com o que ocorreu, é entrar na dimensão da vida de que trata a palavra religião."
Author: Frederick Buechner
23. "Lo guardò negli occhi: «Non teme di dannarsi?»«Credo di esserlo già, ma non per lo Spirito Santo» disse Delaura senza allarme «Ho sempre creduto che tiene da conto più l'amore che la fede.»"

"The hot water pools are steaming, Fagan and Monsanto and the others are all sitting peacefully up to their necks, they're all naked, but there's a gang of fairies also there naked all standing in various bath house postures that make me hesitate to take my clothes off just on general principles. (p. 106)"
Author: Jack Kerouac
28. "The insurance companies aren't covering that. Should Monsanto be liable for these losses? Should the state government? Who's going to cover the losses? The fact is, here's an industry with no long-term liability in place."
Author: Jeremy Rifkin
29. "The antitrust litigation currently in the federal courts in the U.S. against Monsanto will be the test case in the life sciences, just as the Microsoft case was the test case in the information sciences."
Author: Jeremy Rifkin

31. "...Sólo que Judas, Platero, es el diputado, o la maestra, o el forense, o el recaudador, o el alcalde, o la comadrona; y cada hombre descarga su escopeta cobarde, hecho niño esta mañana de Sábado Santo, contra el que tiene su odio, en una superposición de vagos y absurdos simulacros primaverales."
Author: Juan Ramón Jiménez
32. "In her mind the U.S. was nothing more and nothing less than a país overrun by gangsters, putas, and no-accounts.

Author: Junot Díaz

'Which of you appalling children threw this at me?'Pete Santorini, Ben Grossman, and Alex Nobody-Can-Pronounce-His-Last-Name laugh so hard that Alex chokes on his gum and Ben has to pound his back."

39. "Memory in these incomparable streets, in mosaics of pain and sweetness, was clear to me now, a unity at last. I remembered small and unimportant things from the past: the whispers of roommates during thunderstorms, the smell of brass polish on my fingertips, the first swim at Folly Beach in April, lightning over the Atlantic, shelling oysters at Bowen's Island during a rare Carolina snowstorm, pigeons strutting across the graveyard at St. Philip's, lawyers moving out of their offices to lunch on Broad Street, the darkness of reveille on cold winter mornings, regattas, the flash of bagpipers' tartans passing in review, blue herons on the marshes, the pressure of the chinstrap on my shako, brotherhood, shad roe at Henry's, camellias floating above water in a porcelain bowl, the scowl of Mark Santoro, and brotherhood again."
Author: Pat Conroy
