1. "There may be little room for the display of this supreme qualification in the retail book business, but there is room for some. Be enterprising. Get good people about you. Make your shop windows and your shops attractive. The fact that so many young men and women enter the teaching profession shows that there are still some people willing to scrape along on comparatively little money for the pleasure of following an occupation in which they delight. It is as true to-day as it was in Chaucer's time that there is a class of men who "gladly learn and gladly teach," and our college trustees and overseers and rich alumni take advantage of this and expect them to live on wages which an expert chauffeur would regard as insufficient. Any bookshop worthy of survival can offer inducements at least as great as the average school or college. Under pleasant conditions you will meet pleasant people, for the most part, whom you can teach and form whom you may learn something."
Author: A. Edward Newton
2. "The words contained in it were inspired by the Holy Spirit into the minds of faithful men, called Prophets and Seers in the Old Testament; and Evangelists and Apostles in the New."
Author: Adam Clarke
3. "...dat ook het meest sluitende systeem en het meest universele rationalisme ten slotte altijd stoot op het irrationele van het menselijk denken. Geen enkele ironische evidentie, geen enkele belachelijke tegenspraak, die de rede in diskrediet brengt, ontgaat hem. Slechts één ding interesseert hem en wel de uitzondering, of deze nu door de geschiedenis van het hart of van de geest voorkomt.[...] Hij stelt om te beginnen vast dat er geen absolute waarheid bestaat..."
Author: Albert Camus
4. "El gran deseo de un corazón inquieto es el de poseer interminablemente al ser que ama o hundir a este ser, cuando llega el momento de la ausencia, en un sueño sin orillas que sólo pueda terminar el día del encuentro."
Author: Albert Camus
5. "No recorded vision is perfect, of high visions, for the seer must keep either his physical organs or his memory in working order. And neither is capable. There is no bridge. One can only be conscious of one thing at a time, and as the consciousness moves nearer to the vision, it loses control of the physical and mental."
Author: Aleister Crowley
6. "En esta analogía, por otra parte, se revelaba, una vez más, que infinitas son las formas de poseer un cuerpo, y que no necesariamente la mas instintiva es también la mas irrevocable."
Author: Alessandro Baricco
7. "The other side of midnight's hour strikes a herald thrice rungSeer, Shadow, Sun—together they comeSixteen winters hence—the light shall be eclipsedLeaving darkness to ascend beneath a sky bleeding fire"
Author: Alyson Noel
8. "She knew well the history of which they spoke because her father had been a part of it. When the military overseers of Pakistan had refused to allow the winning party in Bangladesh—then East Pakistan—to form a government, her father had put down his textbooks, left the university, and joined the fight. Hundreds of thousands, millions of deaths later, Bangladesh had its independence. His stories had made a deep impact on on Asma as a child. She had resolved to be as brave, only to learn that as a woman she wasn't expected to be."
Author: Amy Waldman
9. "He was a seer of visions and a dreamer of dreams, unconsciously charming and unfailingly kind."
Author: Anne Rice
10. "I'm now making myself as scummy as I can. Why? I want to be a poet, and I'm working at turning myself into a seer. You won't understand any of this, and I'm almost incapable of explaining it to you. The idea is to reach the unknown by the derangement of all the senses. It involves enormous suffering, but one must be strong and be a born poet. It's really not my fault."
Author: Arthur Rimbaud
11. "The first study for the man who wants to be a poet is knowledge of himself, complete: he searches for his soul, he inspects it, he puts it to the test, he learns it. As soon as he has learned it, he must cultivate it! I say that one must be a seer, make oneself a seer. The poet becomes a seer through a long, immense, and reasoned derangement of all the senses. All shapes of love suffering, madness. He searches himself, he exhausts all poisons in himself, to keep only the quintessences. Ineffable torture where he needs all his faith, all his superhuman strength, where he becomes among all men the great patient, the great criminal, the great accursed one--and the supreme Scholar! For he reaches the unknown! ....So the poet is actually a thief of Fire!"
Author: Arthur Rimbaud
12. "Hacía ya mucho tiempo que me vanagloriaba de poseer todos los paisajes posibles, y que se me antojaban irrisorias todas las celebridades de la pintura y de la poesía moderna.Me gustaban las pinturas idiotas: adornos de puertas, decorados, telones de saltimbancos, emblemas, estampas populares; la literatura pasada de moda: latín de iglesia, libros eróticos ignorantes de la ortografía, novelas de nuestras abuelas, cuentos de hadas, libritos infantiles, viejas óperas, estribillos bobos, ritmos ingenuos.Soñaba con cruzadas, viajes de exploración cuya crónica no nos ha llegado, repúblicas sin historia, guerras de religión sofocadas, revoluciones de costumbres, desplazamientos de razas y continentes: creía en todos los encantamientos."
Author: Arthur Rimbaud
13. "Trains are great dirty smoky things," said Will. "You won't like it." Tessa was unmoved. "I won't know if I like it until I try it, will I?" "I've never swum naked in the Thames before, but I know I wouldn't like it." "But think how entertaining for sightseers," said Tessa, and she saw Jem duck his head to hide the quick flash of his grin."
Author: Cassandra Clare
14. "Ik wil dat ze kon zien hoe geslagen hij is. De uitdrukking op zijn gezicht, zijn leven staat op instorten. Want dan zou ze misschien beseffen, al het was het maar een fractie van een seconde, dat hoewel de wereld haar niet interesseert, de wereld wel geïnteresseerd is in haar."
Author: David Levithan
15. "Poetry was not meant to be a workhorse; it was not designed to paint pretty moral pictures of life; it was not brought into being to confuse us with cryptograms, or high platitudes, or pompous pretensions. The poet was meant to be a seer; he was designed to run toward the intensities and magnificences of life, to bathe his hands in reality. But where the mystic ran toward Reality in silence and lost himself in it, the poet as soon as he had experienced it, ran back toward humanity crying the good news and putting it into shimmering webs of words."
Author: Francis Beauchesne Thornton
16. "A culture's ability to understand the world and itself is critical to its survival. But today we are led into the arena of public debate by seers whose main gift is their ability to compel people to continue to watch them."
Author: George Saunders
17. "The significant thing about Edwards is the way he enters into the tradition, infuses it with his personality and makes it live. The vitality of his thought gives to its product the value of unique creation. Two qualities in him especially contribute to this result, large constructive imagination and a marvelously acute power of abstract reasoning. With the vision of the seer he looks steadily upon his world, which is the world of all time and space and existence, and sees it as a whole; God and souls are in it the great realities, and the transactions between them the great business in which all its movement is concerned."
Author: H. Norman Gardiner
18. "Alles waar je je wil en je aandacht op richt, wordt onzichtbaar, onbereikbaar, dat is tenminste mijn ervaring. Je ziet de dingen pas werkelijk uit je ooghoeken, als je eigenlijk ergens anders mee bezig bent. Het is net of de werkelijkheid zich dan gepasseerd voelt, het niet neemt en zich aan je opdringt."
Author: Harry Mulisch
19. "But while we are confined to books, though the most select and classic, and read only particular written languages, which are themselves but dialects and provincial, we are in danger of forgetting the language in which all things and events speak without metaphor, which alone is copious and standard. Much is published, but little printed. The rays which stream through the shutter will be no longer remembered when the shutter is wholly removed. No method nor discipline can supersede the necessity of being forever on the alert. What is a course of history, or philosophy, or poetry, no matter how well selected, or the best society, or the most admirable routine of life, compared with the discipline of looking always at what is to be seen? Will you be a reader, a student merely, or a seer? Read your fate, see what is before you, and walk on into futurity."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
20. "Contrario a la expectativa. Un hombre sabio, la maravilla de su época, le enseñaba a sus discípulos a través de lo que parecía ser una inagotable fuente de sabiduría. Él atribuía todo su conocimiento a un grueso tomo que estaba guardado en un lugar privilegiado de su habitación. El sabio no le permitía a nadie abrir el volumen. Cuando murió, aquellos que siempre lo habían seguido, considerándose como sus herederos y ansiosos por poseer lo que contenía, corrieron tras el libro para abrirlo. Quedaron sorprendidos, confundidos y decepcionados cuando hallaron que lo escrito ocupaba apenas una hoja. Quedaron aún más desconcertados y luego irritados cuando intentaron penetrar en el significado de la frase que sus ojos habían encontrado. Era: "Cuando te des cuenta de la diferencia entre el contenedor y el contenido, tendrás el conocimiento."
Author: Idries Shah
21. "I say that the true artist seer, the heavenly fool who can and does produce beauty, is mainly dazzled to death by his own scruples, the blinding shapes and colors of his own human conscience."
Author: J.D. Salinger
22. "I thought," Shad said slowly, "that she was offended if you referred to Blind Seer or Elation as her pets.""True," Derian assured him. "Absolutely the correct etiquette—to her face. However, well… When I first met Firekeeper, less than a year ago, her relationships with animals fell into pretty much two categories: those you ate and those you befriended. I remember that she thought we were pretty clever for bringing horses along so we wouldn't need to hunt our meat. It took me a while to show her they had other uses."
Author: Jane Lindskold
23. "Ensor sees with his imagination, but his vision is perfectly accurate, of an almost geometric precision. He is one of the very few who can really see. Like you, he has an obsession with masks; he is a seer as you and I are. The common herd, of course thinks that he is mad.*****************You shall see what sort of man Ensor is, and what a marvellous insight he has into the invisible realm where our vices are created... those vices for which our faces make masks."
Author: Jean Lorrain
24. "The glass doors stared back at me like a secret passageway, moonlight filtering in and adding to the effect. I swallowed again, my heart pounding. What an exhilarating emotion this was. Exhilarating and terrifying. Nothing had ever made me feel so overwhelmed, so ethereal. Of all the new mysteries in my life, this was the most wrenching. Everything would change now, I knew. (Lily from Seers of Light)"
Author: Jennifer DeLucy
25. "Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine..."
Author: Jennifer Donnelly
26. "... only a seer or a lover would know that I'm making a jewelry of words for you -drawn from your essence -to flash and burn with your fire -so you can bedazzle with your own light ..."
Author: John Geddes
27. "El estudio de la economía no parece exigir ningún don especializado de un orden excepcionalmente superior. ¿No es una disciplina muy fácil comparada con las ramas superiores de la filosofía o la ciencia pura?. Una disciplina fácil de la que muy pocos sobresalen. La paradoja tal vez tenga su explicación en que el economista experto debe poseer una rara combinación de dones. Debe ser en cierta medida matemático, historiador, estadista, filosofo. Debe comprender los símbolos y hablar en palabras. Debe contemplar lo particular desde la óptica de lo general y considerar en un mismo razonamiento lo abstracto y lo concreto.Debe estudiar el presente pensando en el futuro. Ningún aspecto de la naturaleza del hombre o de sus instituciones debe quedarse al margen de su consideración. Debe ser simultáneamente decidido y desinteresado; tan distante e incorruptible como un artista y, sin embargo a veces tan cerca del suelo como un político"
Author: John Maynard Keynes
28. "Y no había palabras, porque no había pensamiento posible para esa fuerza capaz de convertir jirones de recuerdo, imágenes aisladas y anodinas, en un repentino bloque vertiginoso, en una viviente constelación aniquilada en el acto mismo de mostrarse, una contradicción que parecía ofrecer y negar a la vez lo que Juan, bebiendo la segunda copa de Sylvaner, contaría más tarde a Calac, a Tell, a Hélène, cuando los encontrara en la mesa del Cluny, y que ahora le hubiera sido necesario poseer de alguna manera como si la tentativa de fijar ese recuerdo no mostrara ya que era inútil, que estaba echando paladas de sombra contra la oscuridad."
Author: Julio Cortázar
29. "A Seer's moon, a Siren's tears,Nineteen Mortal, Wayward fears,Incubus graves and Caster rivers,The Final Page the End delivers."
Author: Kami Garcia
30. "Your Seer needs my help to do somethin' she can't. To join the ti-bon-age, mend the seams she ripped herself."Link didn't understand either. "T-bone what? What kinda steak are we talkin' about here?"
Author: Kami Garcia
31. "Samhain had its origins, like many modern holidays or celebrations, in pagan times. As the sidhe-seers had been inclined to erect churches andabbeys on their sacred sites, the Vatican had been wont to "Christianize" ancient, pagan celebrations in an if-you-can't-beat-them-and-don't-wantto-join-them-rename-it-and-pretend-it-was-yours-all-along campaign."
Author: Karen Marie Moning
32. "What is trust, sidhe-seer, but expectation that another will behave in a certain fashion, consistent with prior actions?"
Author: Karen Marie Moning
33. "Careful, sidhe-seer. I have chosen to spare you. Do not press your luck."I locked my jaw, pushed myself up, and lit another match, studying my enemies in the flickering light. Both would devour me. Just in different ways. If forced to choose, I'd take death-by-Shade."Why have you chosen to spare me?""I want us to be . . . what is your word? Friends.""Psychotic rapists don't have friends.""I was unaware you were psychotic rapist or I would not have offered."
Author: Karen Marie Moning
34. "Seen runes like these before, Barrons?" Ryodan said. "No. You?" Barrons said. "New to me. Could be useful." I heard the sound of a phone taking pictures. Then I heard the sound of a phone being crushed against rock. "Are you out of your mind?" Ryodan said disbelievingly. "That was my phone." "Possibly," Jo said. "But no one records anything here." "Crush something of mine again, I'll crush your skill." "I weary of you," Jo said. "I weary of your ass, too, sidhe-seer," Ryodan growled."
Author: Karen Marie Moning
35. "Perhaps it is weariness that causes seers not to act on what they see; for whereas the wisdom of the world can be vast, it includes the many futilities. Ideas do not have legs with which to run and hands with which to craft. They are wisps of smoke floating into a universe of pain and ignorance that overwhelm the capacity of one small human body and the mind trapped inside it."
Author: Kate Horsley
36. "I imagined the sound of whips on black backs and the roar of the overseer over the cry of mothers being separated from their babies. I pulled on all the strength I had not to shot out every valuable leaded pane of glass in that stinking house."
Author: Linda Leigh Hargrove
37. "The door was opening again. The seer does not like to dwell upon what he saw entering the room: he says it might be described as a frog - the size of a man - but it had scanty white hair about its head. It was busy about the truckle-beds, but not for long. The sound of cries - faint, as if coming out of a vast distance - but, even so, infinitely appalling, reached the ear. ("The Haunted Doll's House")"
Author: M.R. James
38. "La moda se desvanece, el estilo es eterno""Nada hace más hermosa a una mujer que la creencia de que es hermosa""Lo que vistes es la forma en que te presentas al mundo, especialmente hoy, cuando los contactos humanos son tan fugaces. La moda es el lenguaje instantáneo""La moda puede comprarse. El estilo es algo que uno debe poseer""La sencillez es la máxima sofisticacción""Recuerda que vestirse siempre discretamente y con buen gusto es lo mismo que hacerse el muerto""El mundo es un libro y aquellos que no viajan leen sólo una página"
Author: Nina García
39. "El solo hecho de poseer un hígado y dos riñones ¿no justificaría que nos pasáramos los días aplaudiendo a la vida y a nosotros mismos? ¿Y no basta con abrir los ojos y mirar, para convencerse que la realidad es, en realidad, el más autentico de los milagros?"
Author: Oliverio Girondo
40. "Yoga is the cessation of the movements of the mind. Then there is abiding in the Seer's own form."
Author: Patanjali
41. "Instead, our system of "corrections" is about arm's-length revenge and retribution, all day and all night. Then its overseers wonder why people leave prison more broken than when they went in."
Author: Piper Kerman
42. "«Who are the true philosophers you have in mind?» he asked. «Sightseers of the truth,» I answered. «That must be right, but what exactly does it mean?» he asked."
Author: Plato
43. "But remember, I am no politician, and no seer into souls."
Author: Rebecca Harding Davis
44. "In reference to Persepolis and all palaces, cities and temples of the past: could these wonders have come into being without that suffering? without the overseer's whip, the slave's fear, the ruler's vanity? was not the monumentality of past epochs created by that which is negative and evil in man?"
Author: Ryszard Kapuściński
45. "One needs a Seer's Vision and an Angel's voice to be of any avail. I do not know of any Indian man or woman today who has those gifts in their most complete measure."

Author: Sri Jibankrishna Or Diamond
48. "A serious prophet upon predicting a flood should be the first man to climb a tree. This would demonstrate that he was indeed a seer."
Author: Stephen Crane
49. "Yet suppose further. Suppose that all worlds, all universes, met in a single nexus, a single pylon, a Tower. A stairway, perhaps, to the Godhead itself. Would you dare, gunslinger? Could it be that somewhere above all of endless reality, there exists a Room...?You dare not."You dare not."Someone has dared," the gunslinger said."Who would that be?""God," the gunslinger said softly. His eyes gleamed. "God has dared...or is the room empty, seer?"
Author: Stephen King
50. "Thou shalt lie down With patriarchs of the infant world,—with kings, The powerful of the earth,—the wise, the good, 35Fair forms, and hoary seers of ages past, All in one mighty sepulchre. The hills Rock-ribbed and ancient as the sun; the vales Stretching in pensive quietness between; The venerable woods—rivers that move 40In majesty, and the complaining brooks That make the meadows green; and, poured round all, Old Ocean's gray and melancholy waste,— Are but the solemn decorations all Of the great tomb of man!"
Author: William Cullen Bryant
