1. "Jika masyarakat sudah dibuat tidak meyakini kebenaran ajaran agama, maka yang akan dijadikan pegangan adalah akal manusia semata atau hawa nafsu mereka. Tidak ada standar kebenaran. Pada ketika itulah masyarakat akan terseret ke dalam arus nilai yang serba relatif dan temporal. Kebenaran tergantung pada kesepakatan. Agama tidak diberi hak untuk campur tangan untuk menentukan baik dan buruk di tengah masyarakat. (Hal.17)"
Author: Adian Husaini

3. "Well, Arminius, I can't say you're the most natural horseman I've ever seen.'Arminius sneered down at the men standing around him, then leaned out of the saddle and put a sausage sized finger in Double-Pay Silus's face.‘Just so we're clear, I hate horses. Tribune Scaurus says I ride like a mule tender with bleeding piles, and that I have all the skill in the saddle of a sack full of shit. And despite that, before you open your mouth, I'm one of your thirty-one horsemen and that's official. You don't like it, I don't like it, but the tribune couldn't give a toss what either of us think. Wherever Centurion Corvus goes, I go. So there it is."

5. "The resulting texts always took a narrative term, enigmatic at first but ultimately explicit and often premonitory. The semantic distribution of these basic elements diverted them from their original meaning, thus revealing their real significance. Henceforth, every form of writing will consist of an operation of decoding, of contamination, and of sense perversion. All this because all language is essentially mystification, and everything is fiction."
Author: Brion Gysin
6. "Now, the atonement of Christ is the most basic and fundamental doctrine of the gospel, and it is the least understood of all our revealed truths.Many of us have a superficial knowledge and rely upon the Lord and his goodness to see us through the trials and perils of life.But if we are to have faith like Enoch and Elijah we must believe what they believed, know what they knew, and live as they lived.May I invite you to join with me in gaining a sound and sure knowledge of the Atonement.We must cast aside the philosophies of men and the wisdom of the wise and hearken to that Spirit which is given to us to guide us into all truth.We must search the scriptures, accepting them as the mind and will and voice of the Lord and the very power of God unto salvation.As we read, ponder, and pray, there will come into our minds a view of the three gardens of God—the Garden of Eden, the Garden of Gethsemane, and the Garden of the Empty Tomb where Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene."
Author: Bruce R. McConkie
7. "There's the pity of it. Elaine Cheeseman's not as young as you; she's forty, maybe. But she's not bad-looking at all. If she took the trouble to dress properly, and occasionally she smiled instead of keeping a frozen, holy-zeal look as though she were goin' to the Crusades instead of only to the polling-station, she might even be a bit of a smasher."
Author: Carter Dickson

Author: Clarice Lispector
10. "Mungkin, suatu saat, apabila sekelumit dirimu itu mulai kesepian dan bosan, ia akan berteriak-teriak ingin pulang. Dan kamu akan menjemputnya, lalu membiarkan sejarah membentengi dirinya dengan tembok tebal yang tak lagi bisa ditembus. Atau mungkin, ketika sebuah keajaiban mampu menguak kekeruhan ini, jadilah ia semacam mercusuar, kompas, bintang selatan…. yang menunjukkan jalan pulang bagi hatimu, untuk, akhirnya, menemuiku.."

14. "There is apparently some connection between dissatisfaction with oneself and a proneness to credulity. The urge to escape our real self is also an urge to escape the rational and the obvious. The refusal to see ourselves as we are develops a distaste for facts and cold logic. There is no hope for the frustrated in the actual and the possible. Salvation can come to them only from the miraculous, which seeps through a crack in the iron wall of inexorable reality. They ask to be deceived. What Stresemann said of the Germans is true of the frustrated in general: "They pray not only for their daily bread, but also for their daily illusion." The rule seems to be that those who find no difficulty deceiving themselves are easily deceived by others. They are easily persuaded and led."
Author: Eric Hoffer
15. "No tengo inconvenientes en manifestar que a veces me impedía comer en todo el día o me impedía pintar durante una semana el haber observado un rasgo; es increíble hasta qué punto la codicia, la envidia, la petulancia, la grosería, la avidez y, en general, todo ese conjunto de atributos que forman la condición humana pueden verse en una cara, en una manera de caminar, en una mirada."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
16. "Insotit de Matilde si Jorge, care avea patru ani, m-am dus sa traiesc in muntii din Cordoba, la o ferma fara apa curenta si curent electric, in localitatea Pantanillo. Sub maiestuosul cer instelat, m-am simtit impacat. Ceva asemanator cu ceea ce spune Henry David Thoreau: "M-am dus in padure pentru ca voiam sa traiesc in meditatie, sa infrunt doar faptele esentiale ale vietii, sa vad daca puteam trai si sa invat ceea ce era de invatat; ca nu cumva sa descopar, apropiindu-ma de moarte, ca nu traisem cu adevarat"."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
17. "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
18. "Ketika kamu mempelajari sesuatu dalam konteks big map, dan berusaha memahaminya secara modular-modular, kemudian dalam proses memahami itu kamu menemukan bug demi bug, dan kamu semakin bersemangat untuk memperbaikinya, ya, saat itu kamu sudah menjadi pemenang."

Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

If the lyrics weren't stupid. Words were important."
Author: Jeffery Deaver
23. "As I held onto Rosemary Telesco for dear life, we both knew the truth. She was going off to camp and eventually, private school. We were on different roads, she and me. Two ships that passed in Sheep Meadow."
Author: Jennifer Flackett
24. "I like the way Wiseman builds a story in an unconventional way."
Author: Jim McKay
25. "Mr. Worldly-Wiseman is not an ancient relic of the past. He is everywhere today, disguising his heresy and error by proclaiming the gospel of contentment and peace achieved by self-satisfaction and works. If he mentions Christ, it is not as the Savior who took our place, but as a good example of an exemplary life. Do we need a good example to rescue us, or do we need a Savior? If"

"He is Sir Horace of the Order of the Feuille du Chene." He paused and muttered to himself, "Or should that have been Crepe du Chene? Never mind."What did you tell him?" Horace asked, slinging his buckler around from where it hung at his back and setting it on his left arm.I said you were Sir Horace of the Order of the Oakleaf." Halt said to him, then added uncertainly, "At least, I think that's what I told him. I may have said you were of the Order of the Oak Pancake."

Author: Jostein Gaarder
30. "I think that lesson was the most important: that none of us actually grow up. We get bigger, and older, but put of us always retains that small rabbit heart, trembling furiously, secretively, with wonder and fear. There's no irony in it. No semantics or subtext. Only red blood and green grass and silver stars"
Author: Leah Raeder
31. "Those who spend the greater part of their time in reading or writing books are, of course, apt to take rather particular notice of accumulations of books when they come across them. They will not pass a stall, a shop, or even a bedroom-shelf without reading some title, and if they find themselves in an unfamiliar library, no host need trouble himself further about their entertainment. The putting of dispersed sets of volumes together, or the turning right way up of those which the dusting housemaid has left in an apoplectic condition, appeals to them as one of the lesser Works of Mercy. Happy in these employments, and in occasionally opening an eighteenth-century octavo, to see 'what it is all about,' and to conclude after five minutes that it deserves the seclusion it now enjoys, I had reached the middle of a wet August afternoon at Betton Court...-the beginning of the story "A Neighbor's Landmark"

Author: Muzaf Ahmad

Shelves filled with jars of items meant for spells and ridiculous concoctions meant to heal bodies, inflict sickness, remove memories and countless other purposes covered most of the walls. The people brave enough to venture out into this part of the swamp and walk through this door were the ones most desperate for an answer. Most people who knew of the true power of voodoo stayed away. It wasn't an evil humans needed to dabble in. It could possess you, steal your soul if you allowed it."
