1. "Divina disponibilitate a condamnatului la moarte în fata caruia se deschid portile închisorii într-o anume zi în zori, indiferenta sa de necrezut fata de toate, în afara de flacara pura a vietii, moartea si absurdul sunt aici, e lesne de vazut, principiile singurei libertati rationale: aceea pe care o inima omeneasca o poate simti si trai! Omul absurd întrevede astfel un univers fierbinte si înghetat, transparent si limitat, în care nimic nu-i cu putinta dar totul este dat, dupa care urmeaza prabusirea si neantul. El poate atunci hotarî sa accepte a trai într-un asemenea univers si sa-si traga de aici puterea, refuzul de a spera si marturia încapatînata a unei vieti fara consolare."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "Jujur terhadap perasaan memang melegakan. Membawa perasaan damai di tengah kepelikan jiwa. Andai saja semua orang dapat jujur terhadap perasaannya masing-masing..."

3. "Hatirladigim kadariyla, vaktiyle, hayatim bir sölendi, tüm gönüllerin açildigi, tüm saraplarin aktigi bir sölen. Bir aksam, Güzelligi dizlerimin üstüne oturttum. -Ve onu çok aci buldum.- Ve sövdüm ona. Adalete karsi önlem aldim. Kaçtim uzaklara. Ey büyücüler, ey sefillik, ey kin, hazinem size emanet! Kafamdaki tüm insani umutlari yok etmeyi basardim. Her sevincin üstüne siçradim bir vahsi hayvan gibi bogmaz için. Yanima cellatlar çagirdim, ölürken, tüfeklerinin dipçiklerini isirayim diye. Belalar çagirdim, kumla, kanla beni bogsunlar diye. Mutsuzluk ilahim oldu. Çamura uzandim boylu boyuna. Cinayet havasiyla kurulandim. Ve nice oyunlar oynadim delicesine. Ve ilkbahar getirdi bana budalaligin ürkütücü gülümsemesini."
Author: Arthur Rimbaud
4. "Nagy Sándor érzékeny volt az országok illatára. Orra megérezte a rendkívüli lehetoségeket. Azok közé tartozott, akiknek arcán álmukban Isten tenyere simított végig, így hát tudják, hogy mit nem tudnak, tele vannak feltevéssel és kétellyel, zárt szemhéjukon pedig távoli világok visszfénye szurodik be. Mindazonáltal túlságosan is szó szerint vette az isteni allúziót. Lévén a tettek embere, vagyis lelkiekben szegény, úgy értelmezte misszióját, mint világhódító küldetést. Szívét ugyanaz a telhetetlen érzés töltötte el, mint az enyémet, keblét ugyanazok a sóhajok feszítették, látóhatárról látóhatárra, tájról tájra érve. Senki sem akadt, aki figyelmeztette volna tévedésére. Maga Arisztotelész sem értette meg ot. Noha meghódította a világot, Nagy Sándor csalódottan halt meg, kételkedve az elole örökösen eltuno Istenben és csodáiban. Minden ország érméin és bélyegein az o arcképe díszelgett. Büntetésül saját korának Ferenc Józsefévé vált."
Author: Bruno Schulz

7. "Ricorderò la tua piccola stanza, la sensazione di te, la luce nella finestra, i tuoi dischi, i tuoi libri, il nostro caffè al mattino, i nostri pomeriggi, le nostre notti, i nostri corpi attaccati, il piccolo flusso di energia, immediato e per sempre. Le tue gambe, le mie gambe, le tue braccia, le mie braccia, il tuo sorriso ed il tuo calore quando mi facevi ridere ancora."
Author: Charles Bukowski
8. "Winter denial: therein lay the key to California Schadenfreude--the secret joy that the rest of the country feels at the misfortune of California. The country said: "Look at them, with their fitness and their tans, their beaches and their movie stars, their Silicon Valley and silicone breasts, their orange bridge and their palm trees. God, I hate those smug, sunshiny bastards!" Because if you're up to your navel in a snowdrift in Ohio, nothing warms your heart like the sight of California on fire. If you're shoveling silt out of your basement in the Fargo flood zone, nothing brightens your day like watching a Malibu mansion tumbling down a cliff into the sea. And if a tornado just peppered the land around your Oklahoma town with random trailer trash and redneck nuggets, then you can find a quantum of solace in the fact that the earth actually opened up in the San Fernando Valley and swallowed a whole caravan of commuting SUVs."
Author: Christopher Moore
9. "Her forehead was unlined in the way of the recently embalmed and her smile resembled that of someone undergoing electroshock."
Author: Dennis Lehane
10. "Just the minute another person is drawn into some one's life, there begin to arise undreamed-of complexities, and from such a simple beginning as sexual desire we find built up such alarming yet familiar phenomena as fetes, divertissements, telephone conversations, arrangements, plans, sacrifices, train arrivals, meetings, appointments, tardiness, delays, marriages, dinners, small pets and animals, calumny, children, music lessons, yellow shades for the windows, evasions, lethargy, cigarettes, candies, repetition of stories and anecdotes, infidelity, ineptitude, incompatibility, bronchial trouble, and many others, all of which are entirely foreign to the original urge and way off the subject."
Author: E.B. White
11. "Only amateurs say that they write for their own amusement. Writing is not an amusing occupation. It is a combination of ditch-digging, mountain-climbing, treadmill and childbirth. Writing may be interesting, absorbing, exhilarating, racking, relieving. But amusing? Never!"
Author: Edna Ferber
12. "She was about twenty-four, Rosemary guessed - her face could have been described in terms of conventional prettiness, but the effect was that it had been made first on the heroic scale with strong structure and marking, as if the features and vividness of brow and coloring, everything we associate with temperament and character had been molded with a Rodinesque intention, and then chiseled away in the direction of prettiness to a point where a single slip would have irreparably diminished its force and quality. With the mouth the sculptor had taken desperate chances - it was the cupid's bow of a magazine cover, yet it shared the distinction of the rest."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
13. "Saying good-by, Dick was aware of Elsie Speers' full charm, aware that she meant rather more to him than merely a last unwilingly relinquished fragment of Rosemary. He could possibly have made up Rosemary - he could never have made up her mother."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
14. "Se è faticoso star con me, perché non te ne vai?" Tu hai schiacciato tutte le emozioni. Per questo non ti arrabbi, non perché sei equilibrato, ma semplicemente perché hai represso le emozioni: via l'amore, via la rabbia, tutto viene nascosto."
Author: Fabio Volo
15. "De um passado sombrio a um futuro brilhante eu desembrulho um presente misterioso."
Author: Filipe Russo

18. "Deslizando as mãos ao longo das costelas dela até a planura do seu abdómen. Ela trazia-lhe sempre as mãos de volta aos seios delgados e expressivos; não permitia ser tocada por mãos abaixo da cintura. Moveram-se em simultâneo, diamantes azuis num campo verde."
Author: Gregory Maguire
19. "When man wanted to make a machine that would walk he created the wheel, which does not resemble a leg."
Author: Guillaume Apollinaire
20. "Charles's conversation was commonplace as a street pavement, and everyone's ideas trooped through it in their everyday garb, without exciting emotion, laughter, or thought. He had never had the curiosity, he said, while he lived at Rouen, to go to the theatre to see the actors from Paris. He could neither swim, nor fence, nor shoot, and one day he could not explain some term of horsemanship to her that she had come across in a novel.A man, on the contrary, should he not know everything, excel in manifold activities, initiate you into the energies of passion, the refinements of life, all mysteries? But this one taught nothing, knew nothing, wished nothing. He thought her happy; and she resented this easy calm, this serene heaviness, the very happiness she gave him."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
21. "To help our youth abide by the principles involved in temple marriage, we must help them to understand that temple marriage is more than just a place where the ceremony occurs; it is a whole orientation to life and marriage and home. It is a culmination of building attitudes toward the Church, chastity, and about our personal relationship with God--and many other things. "Thus, simply preaching temple marriage is not enough. Our family home evenings, seminaries, institutes, and auxiliaries must build toward this goal, not by exhortation alone but by showing that the beliefs and attitudes involved in temple marriage are those which can bring the kind of life here and in eternity that most humans really want for themselves" (The Teachings of Harold B. Lee, p. 244)."
Author: Harold B. Lee
22. "El hombre que sabe debe desempeñar una función. El que no sabe, no puede atribuirse una a sí mismo; sólo puede tratar de hacerlo."

23. "La mente dell'uomo è contorta e in genere lo spinge a credere sempre alla peggiore delle ipotesi"
Author: Ildefonso Falcones
24. "Rasa cinta itu kadang semakin jernih ketika kita harus terpisah. Rasa cinta itu bisa tumbuh subur di tempat yang asing dan jauh. Rasa cinta itu tumbuh lewat jalan yang berliku, lewat kegelapan dan air mata. Rasa cinta yang seperti itu sejatinya akan menjadikan kita kuat."
Author: Iwan Setyawan
25. "I sit and I listen to John cry and I wish there was something I could do to help him. I sit and I listen and I wish there was some way I could make it better. There is no hope for John, no hope at all. He could go to five hundred Clinics and spend ten years working the Twelve Steps and it wouldn't make a bit of fucking difference. He has been broken beyond repair, wounded beyond the point of healing, abused beyond the point of recovery. He will never know happiness or joy, security, or normalcy. He will never know pleasure, satisfaction, serenity, clarity, peace of mind or any semblance of sanity. He will never know or trust love. You poor, sick, sad Motherfucker. You will never know. I'm sorry."
Author: James Frey
26. "THE ALLURE OF Montana is like a commitment to a narcotic; you can never use it up or get enough of it. Its wilderness areas probably resemble the earth on the first day of creation."
Author: James Lee Burke
27. "It may take a decade or two before the extent of Shakespeare's collaboration passes from the graduate seminar to the undergraduate lecture, and finally to popular biography, by which time it will be one of those things about Shakespeare that we thought we knew all along. Right now, though, for those who teach the plays and write about his life, it hasn't been easy abandoning old habits of mind. I know that I am not alone in struggling to come to terms with how profoundly it alters one's sense of how Shakespeare wrote, especially toward the end of his career when he coauthored half of his last ten plays. For intermixed with five that he wrote alone, Antony and Cleopatra, Coriolanus, The Winter's Tale, Cymbeline, and The Tempest, are Timon of Athens (written with Thomas Middleton), Pericles (written with George Wilkins), and Henry the Eighth, the lost Cardenio, and The Two Noble Kinsmen (all written with John Fletcher)."
Author: James Shapiro
28. "And we've also had now the speaker of the Parliament in Iraq using blatantly anti-Semitic remarks, saying the Jews and sons of Jews are the problem of all the violence that's in Iraq."
Author: Jan Schakowsky
29. "As reflexões deviam ser reservadas para as horas solitárias; sempre que podia, entregava-se a elas com alívio; e não se passava um dia sem uma de suas caminhadas, nas quais podia se entregar ao prazer das lembranças desagradáveis."
Author: Jane Austen
30. "As for me, even though I have been accused of anti-Semitism countless times, no one has ever heard me make anti-Semitic statements or engage in anti-Semitic behavior."
Author: Jean Marie Le Pen
31. "Et voilà, mon passé n'est plus qu'un trou énorme. Mon présent: cette bonne au corsage noir qui rêve près du comptoir, ce petit bonhomme. Tout ce que je sais de ma vie, il me semble que je l'ai appris dans des livres."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
32. "With a sigh, he grabbed hold of his chair and lifted himself out of it, then wrote on the blackboard: How will we ever get out of this labyrinth of suffering? - A.Y.'I'm going to leave that up for the rest of the semester,' he said.'Because everybody who has ever lost their way in life has felt the nagging insistence of that question. At some point we all look up and realize we are lost in a maze, and I don't want us to forget Alaska, and I don't want to forget that even when the material we study seems boring, we're trying to understand how people have answered that question and the questions each of you posed in your papers--how different traditions have come to terms with what Chip, in his final, called 'people's rotten lots in life."
Author: John Green
33. "... que si antes de cada acción pudiésemos prever todas sus consecuencias, nos pusiésemos a pensar en ellas seriamente, primero en las consecuencias immediatas, después en las probables, más tarde las posibles, luego las imaginables, no llegaríamos siquiera a movernos de donde el primer pensamiento nos hubiera hecho detenernos."
Author: José Saramago
34. "I slide my feet onto the seat next to him, my ankle brushing against his thigh. "No shallowness of breath? No rapidly beating heart?"He rests one hand on my foot as he continues to mess with his phone. His eyes meet mine in amusement. "Are those the indicators? I might have an issue after all."
Author: Kasie West
35. "Ne zamandir artik hayatin puslu, soguk bir sonbahara döndügünü saniyordum. Seni gördükten sonra birdenbire günesli bir sabaha uyandim. Simdi dünyanin neresine gidersem gideyim, hangi mevsimde olursak olalim, seni düsündügüm zaman(hayir,yanlis söyledim çünkü senin yüzün, gülüsün hep benim yanimda) hep günesli, isiltili bir gün yasiyorum. Acaba benim için dünyanin isigini degistirdiginin farkinda misin?"

36. "Já agora creio que não basta que os pregões de rua, como os opúsculos de seminário, encerrem casos, pessoas e sensações; é preciso que a gente os tenha conhecido e padecido no tempo, sem o que tudo é calado e incolor."
Author: Machado De Assis

39. "[Über das Paradies:] Die fünf Bücher Mose, die Genesis und der Koran beschäftigen sich eingehend mit dieser hysterischen Geographie. Die muslimische Variante ist jedoch am gelungensten und lohnt wirklich die Lektüre: Bäche, Gärten, Flüsse, Quellen, Blumenbeete, jede Menge Früchte und wunderbare Getränke, großäugige Houris, allzeit jungfräulich, liebenswürdige junge Menschen, Betten im Überfluß, prächtige Kleider, wunderbare Stoffe, außergewöhnlicher Schmuck, Gold, Perlen, Parfums, kostbares Geschirr ... es fehlt nichts in diesem Werbeprospekt des ontologischen Fremdenverkehrsamtes."
Author: Michel Onfray

41. "Una strana fatalità sembra costringere ogni essere umano ad aggirarsi, simile ad un fantasma, nei luoghi dove qualche grave avvenimento ha lasciato un profondo solco nella vita di lui; e codesta fatalità è tanto più inesorabile, quanto più quel solco sia di tristezza e di dolore."
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

49. "Soneto 138 de ShakespeareTradução livre por Rodrigo Suzuki CintraQuando meu amor jura que é feita de verdade,Eu acredito nela, apesar de saber que é mentira,Ela deve pensar que sou qualquer moço sem idadeQue não conhece de fato como o mundo gira.Assim, inutilmente acreditando que ela me acha jovem,Apesar de saber que meus melhores dias já não voltam mais,Simplesmente eu acredito em suas palavras que me comovem,Na medida em que a verdade não nos satisfaz.Mas por que ela não admite ser desonesta?E por que não admito ser um homem idoso?O melhor do amor é ser hábito que ninguém protesta,Pois mentir no amor é sempre mais gostoso: Nos deitamos em nossas mentiras, eu com ela e ela comigo E na mentira do amor nós encontramos abrigo."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "As Narc became busier at work, he developed a bold new dating philosophy. His idea of a perfect first date was doggy-style, followed by a cup of coffee. He just didn't have the time or patience for anything resembling conventional courtship patterns and felt too depressed to be the charming smooth talker that he had once been."
