Natural, lo más bonito. Besa como a mi me gusta. Sin tener que representarse, sin tener que reafirmarse, sencillo. Seguro, suave, tranquilo, sin prisa, con diversión, sin técnica, con sabor. ¿Puedo? ¡Con amor! ¡Dios mío! No, eso no. ¡Vete a la mierda, Step!"

17. "Nunca amamos alguém. Amamos, tão-somente, a ideia que fazemos de alguém. É a um conceito nosso - em suma, é a nós mesmos - que amamos. Isto é verdade em toda a escala do amor. No amos sexual buscamos um prazer nosso por intermédio de um corpo estranho. No amor diferente do sexual, buscamos um prazer nosso dado por intermédio de uma ideia nossa. O onanista é objecto, mas, em exacta verdade, o onanista é a perfeita expressão lógica do amoroso. É o único que não disfarça nem se engana."
Author: Fernando Pessoa

Tampoco entiendo que los terremotos tumben iglesias, y con gentecita devota adentro.¡Qué! ¿No estamos los católicos seguros ni en las iglesias, a salvo de la ira de Dios? Está uno tranquilo en una iglesia escampándose del aguacero o de la música disco cuando ¡pum! le da al Otro por temblar, por tirarle a uno el techo encima, las torres y los candiles, el pararrayos y el reloj. Vivir en sí es un peligro y en las iglesias ni se diga con la protección de arriba."
Author: Fernando Vallejo

21. "Vedendolo così, vestito per lei in un modo così manifesto, non poté impedire il rossore di fuoco che le montò al viso. Si offuscò quando lo salutò, e lui si offuscò di più con il suo offuscamento. La coscienza di comportarsi come fidanzati li offuscò ancora di più, e la coscienza che tutti e due fossero offuscati finì per offuscarli fino al punto che il capitano Samaritano se ne accorse con un tremolio di compassione."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

"And, most vivid of all, there was the dramatic epic of the rats - the scampering army of obscene vermin which had burst forth from the castle three months after the tragedy that doomed it to desertion - the lean, filthy, ravenous army which had swept all before it and devoured fowl, cats, dogs, hogs, sheep, and even two hapless human beings before its fury was spent."
Author: H.P. Lovecraft

Norrys, with my own cat leaping and tearing at my throat....When I speak of poor Norrys they accuse me of a hideous thing, but they must know that I did not do it. They must know it was the rats; the slithering, scurrying rats whose scampering will never let me sleep; the daemon rats that race behind the padding in this room and beckon me down to greater horrors than I have ever known; the rats they can never hear; the rats, the rats in the walls."
Author: H.P. Lovecraft

29. "Portanto - disse a Srta. Tilney -, a senhorita crê que os historiadores não são felizes ao deixar sua imaginação voar. Eles demonstram possuí-la, mas não conseguem despertar o interesse. Eu gosto de História, e não me importo de aceitar o que é falso junto com o que é verdadeiro. Para descrever os fatos principais, eles buscam informações em registros e em outros livros que são tão confiáveis, creio eu, quanto qualquer coisa que não se passe diante de nossos próprios olhos. E quanto aos pequenos adornos aos quais se refere, são apenas adornos, e gosto deles como tal. Se um discurso for bem escrito, eu o lerei com prazer, não importa quem seja o autor. E leio com mais prazer ainda se tiverem sido produzidos pelo Sr. Hume e pelo Sr. Robertson do que se fossem as palavras genuínas de Caractacus, Júlio Agrícola ou ALfredo, o Grande."
Author: Jane Austen
30. "Al principio eran ninfas de blancos brazos y turgentes pechos que seducían a los hombres; pero luego, cuando cundió la voz y los jóvenes ya no eran tan incautos de dejarse dominar por la lujuria, las náyades se mostraban en su verdadera forma, y de las aguas surgían largos brazos cubiertos de escamas verdes que arrastraban a sus presas a las honduras de los ríos y los estanques para ahogarlos."
Author: Javier Negrete
31. "Global Warming: It is a hoax. It is bad science. It is high-jacking public policy. It is the greatest scam in history."
Author: John Coleman
32. "The SAT is a scam."
Author: John Katzman
33. "Still, my fascination with Buchanan did not abate, nor was I able, as the Seventies set in, to move the novel forward through the constant pastiche and basic fakery of any fiction not fed by the springs of memory -- what Henry James calls (in a letter to Sarah Orne Jewett) the "fatal cheapness [and] mere escamotage" of the "'historic' novel."
Author: John Updike
34. "Secuencias. No sé decirlo mejor, es como una noción de que bruscamente se arman secuencias terribles o idiotas en la vida de un hombre, sin que se sepa qué ley fuera de las leyes clasificadas decide..."
Author: Julio Cortázar
35. "Hank was walking barefoot up the dock, carrying his sweatshirt over a freckled shoulder and his boots clamped between thumb and finger of that maimed hand. Lee marveled at the scamper of small muscles across the narrow white back, at the swing of the arms and the lift of the neck. Did it take that much muscle just to walk, or was Hank showing off his manly development? Every moment constituted open aggression against the very air through which Hank passed. He doesn't just breathe, Lee decided, listening to Hank's broken-nosed puffing, he gobbles the oxygen. He doesn't just walk; he consumes distance step by carnivorous step. Open aggression is what it is all right, he concluded. Yet couldn't help but notice the way those shoulders seemed to savor the swing of the arms, or the way those feel relished the feel of the dock. These I one of these people?"
Author: Ken Kesey
36. "If Nana thinks you're trying to scam her, she'll tell you, and if she thinks you ruined her life by discontinuing Arnold's Thin bread, she'll let you know that, too. I guess when you spend eighty-seven years swallowing other people's bullshit, there comes a time when you gotta spit some back."
Author: Laurie Notaro
37. "Sono tutte linee" pensò e cominciò a vedere ognuna di quelle persone come una riga tracciata su un'ipotetica mappa. Un gigantesco groviglio di strade che si incrociavano, si sfioravano, si univano e poi proseguivano oltre. Là fuori, nelle vie del mondo, miliardi di linee, di percorsi di vita. Miliardi di direzioni. Strade intraprese deviate per caso, talvolta interrotte bruscamente. Pensò per un attimo che due innamorati altro non erano che due percorsi in balia del caos. Potevano disegnare i tragitti più assurdi sul mappamondo, dirigersi ovunque e mai incontrarsi. Oppure incrociarsi anche diverse volte e mai riconoscersi. Potevano prendere lo stesso autobus tutte le mattine, senza sapere niente l'uno dell'altro. Così fino alla fine dei loro giorni, senza mai interagire. Ma bastava così poco: uno scambio di battute, anche casuale, e le linee si sarebbero magicamente unite. Da grigi tratti di un solitario percorso sarebbero diventate un'unica strada."
Author: Leonardo Patrignani
38. "Incapaces de encontrar la felicidad en nosotros mismos, la buscamos desesperadamente en objetos, en experiencias, en maneras de pensar o de comportarse cada vez más extrañas. En pocas palabras: nos alejamos de la felicidad buscándola donde no existe."
Author: Matthieu Ricard
39. "We must take down the carnies. I think we need to start a campaign to defeat their scamming ways. I never win the boardwalk basketball game."

40. "Pienso que en la vida de cada uno de nosotros existe un libro similar, que de pequeños no nos limitamos simplemente a leer, sino que inspeccionamos y rebuscamos en cada uno de sus rincones como si de una habitación se tratara. Un libro así, rebuscado como una habitación, escrutado o interrogado como una cara en cada rasgo y arruga, nunca podremos juzgarlo como se juzga un libro, porque para nosotros ha abandonado la zona de los libros y ha pasado a vivir a la zona de la memoria y de los afectos."
Author: Natalia Ginzburg
41. "Well, I don't think that the SAT is a scam."
Author: Robert Sternberg
42. "I didn't think she was that kind of girl." I scampered up onto the ledge and strained to listen. "I overheard two of my students talking about her in homeroom yesterday. I never would have thought Natalie would do something like that. Then again, she's been acting out big-time. Fraternizing with that Spencer girl." I closed my eyes to stop the room from spinning. What would have ever made me think that teachers wouldn't hear about this, too? After all, it was all over the school. Another teacher agreed. "Natalie always seemed like such a nice girl." But I am a nice girl, I wanted to scream."
Author: Siobhan Vivian
43. "My dad used to love Steely Dan, the Stones, Jethro Tull and all that. There was always Steely Dan going in my dad's car, but I remember The Royal Scam in particular because it has 'Kid Charlemagne' on it."
Author: St. Vincent
44. "Sai qual è l'errore che si fa sempre? Quello di credere che la vita sia immutabile, che una volta percorso un binario lo si debba percorrere fino in fondo. Il destino ha molta più fantasia di noi. Proprio quando credi di trovarti in una situazione senza via di scampo, quando raggiungi il picco di disperazione massima, con la velocità di una raffica di vento tutto cambia, si stravolge e da un momento all'altro ti trovi a vivere una nuova vita."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
45. "The war on drugs was never meant to be won. Instead, it will be prolonged as long as possible in order to allow various intelligence operations to wring the last few hundreds of millions of dollars in illicit profits from the global drug scam; then defeat will have to be declared. "Defeat" will mean, as it did in the case of the Vietnam War, that the media will correctly portray the true dimensions of the situation and the real players, and that public revulsion at the culpability, stupidity and venality of the Establishment's role will force a policy review."
Author: Terence McKenna
46. "Unpaid internships are worse than slavery," Gabby said. I looked at her, unsure of what she meant. "They make us work ridiculous hours, for free, and they make us do things an employee would do. It's a scam, and worse, they make you feel like they're doing YOU a favor. It's such mindfuckery."
Author: Teresa Lo
47. "Tonight I've been dealing with a known killer, a male whore, a scam artist and now I've graduated to talking to a mayor. Who's next? The President of the National Association of Rodents?"
Author: V. Alexander
48. "Era comunque una forma di rapporto esigente. Altri oggetti di adorazione si contentavano quell'adorazione; uomini, donne, Dio, tutti permettevano che si adorassero prostrati in ginocchio; ma quella forma, fosse anche soltanto l'alone di un paralume bianco contro un tavolo di vimini, incitava a un combattimento perpetuo, sfidava a una lotta in cui si era costretti ad avere la peggio. Sempre (era nella sua natura, o nel suo sesso, non sapeva quale delle due) prima di scambiare la fluidità della vita con la concentrazione della pittura ella aveva qualche momento di nudità in cui pareva un'anima mai nata, un'anima spogliata del corpo, esitante su qualche pinnacolo ventoso ed esposta senza protezione a tutti i soffi di dubbio."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "¿Qué derecho tenían los Bradshaw a hablar de muerte en su fiesta? Se había matado, sí, pero ¿cómo? El cuerpo de Clarissa siempre lo revivía, en el primer instante, bruscamente, cuando le contaban un accidente; se le inflamaba el vestido, le ardía el cuerpo."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "[The cats] scamper in front of my legs, causing me to fall and face plant into whatever furniture is closest. They especially like to play this game when I'm carrying piping hot coffee."
