2. "Ce este, de fapt, normal pentru mine? Ce poate fi normal într-o lume în care nimic nu e ceea ce pare? Doar moartea mai pare sa fie un lucru adevarat, pentru ca via?a s-a transformat într-o farsa. Dar nu pot sa mor, chiar de-a? vrea, pentru ca n-am curajul sa fac asta. Nu pot sa termin cu ceva ce nu-mi mai apar?ine ?i nu mi-a apar?inut niciodata. Ce-am trait pâna acum... nu era pentru mine. Era pentru cineva uman."

10. "On visioning: In visioning, you're not using your limited perception of life to manifest. You're using your mind for the purpose it was actually created — as an avenue of awareness, a receiving station to pick up the divine ideas being broadcast everywhere. And once you catch this vision, it doesn't just manifest, it changes you, stretches you, transforming you into a person who can handle the higher vibration and larger manifestation. You don't just get the new Mercedes, you get Mercedes Consciousness. You "become the change you want to see."
Author: Derek Rydall

She had set aside those two hours - three, if you counted the driving - to be of service to her sister. The fact that Vicki had unexpectedly granted her leave gave those two hours a rarefied quality. What Brenda had thought was, I'd better not waste them. And, like magic, the words had come. The pages had filled."
Author: Elin Hilderbrand

The kingdom of the world is concerned with preserving law and order by force; the kingdom of God is concerned with establishing the rule of God through love. The kingdom of the world is centrally concerned with what people do; the kingdom of God is centrally concerned with how people are and what they can become.The kingdom of the world is characterized by judgment; the kingdom of God is characterized by outrageous, even scandalous, grace."
Author: Gregory A. Boyd
17. "La fatica e la pena", per ottenere i beni necessari alla vita, e il piacere di "incorporarli" sono così strettamente legati assieme nel ciclo biologico che la perfetta eliminazione della pena e dello sforzo del lavoro non solo spoglierebbe la vita biologica dei suoi piaceri più naturali, ma priverebbe la vita specificamente umana della sua stessa vivacità e vitalità. La condizione umane è tale che la pena e lo sforzo non sono semplici sintomi, che possono essere rimossi senza cambiare la vita stessa; sono piuttosto modi in cui la vita, insieme con la necessità cui è legata, si fa percepire. Per i mortali, la "facile vita degli dei" sarebbe una vita senza vitalità."
Author: Hannah Arendt

Of course, it's possible for people as they mature to make up for a decline in natural talent. Like when a fastball pitcher transforms himself into a cleverer pitcher who relies on changeups. But there is a limit. And there definitely is a sense of loss."
Author: Haruki Murakami
20. "Denn wenn man an alle Völker der Erde die Aufforderung ergehen liesse, sich unter all den verschiedenen Sitten die vorzüglichsten auszuwählen, so würde jedes, nachdem es alle geprüft, die seinigen allen anderen vorziehen. So sehr ist jedes Volk überzeugt, dass seine Lebensformen die besten sind. Wie kann daher ein Mensch mit gesunden Sinnen über solche Dinge spotten!"
Author: Herodotus

Author: Himmilicious

Author: Irene Rosenfeld
23. "Critical art is an art that aims to produce a new perception of the world, and therefore to create a commitment to its transformation. This schema, very simple in appearance, is actually the conjunction of three processes: first, the production of a sensory form of 'strangeness'; second, the development of an awareness of the reason for that strangeness and third, a mobilization of individuals as a result of that awareness."
Author: Jacques Rancière
24. "Creativity connects me to my truest self and vulnerability.

In the case of Jesus, he is infinitely admirable, and our admiration rises to the most absolute worship. Therefore, when we behold him as we should, the change is profound."
Author: John Piper
29. "Falar do passado é o mais fácil que há, está tudo escrito, é só repetir, papaguear, conferir pelos livros o que os alunos [escrevem] nos livros ou nas chamadas orais, ao passo que falar de um presente que a cada minuto nos rebenta na cara, falar dele todos os dias do ano ao mesmo tempo que se vai navegando pelo rio da História acima até às origens, ou lá perto, esforça-nos por entender cada vez melhor a cadeia de acontecimentos que nos trouxe aonde estamos agora, isso é outro cantar, dá muito trabalho, exige constância de aplicação, há que manter sempre a corda tensa, sem quebra."
Author: José Saramago

Psoriasis of the soul."

36. "Agora, o pintor dissertava longamente acerca da composição: o que há de mais bonito nos sonhos, dizia, é o encontro improvável de seres e de coisas que não poderiam encontrar-se na vida corrente; num sonhos, um barco pode entrar por uma janela num quarto de dormir, uma mulher que já não está viva há vinte anos pode aparecer deitada numa cama e, contudo, ei-la a subir para o barco que se transforma acto contínuo em caixão e o caixão põe-se a flutuar por entre as margens floridas de um rio."
Author: Milan Kundera

41. "Once you've played for someone, sweated blood for them, won and lost games for them, then that person is transformed forever in your eyes. He simply isn't human anymore. He's something better than human, he's something stern and demanding. He tries to extract performances from your body that exceed your talent. He makes you more than you really are. He gives you a uniform, an identity, a feeling of brotherhood like you have never known before and most likely will never know again... All you can do for the rest of your life is feel gratitude that he let you taste the small dose of glory, a dose that really means nothing, but means absolutely everything to a boy growing up."
Author: Pat Conroy

Author: Raheel Farooq
45. "Confession is a difficult Discipline for us because we all too often view the believing community as a fellowship of saints before we see it as a fellowship of sinners. We feel that everyone else has advanced so far into holiness that we are isolated and alone in our sin. We cannot bear to reveal our failures and shortcomings to others. We imagine that we are the only ones who have not stepped onto the high road to heaven. Therefore, we hide ourselves from one another and live in veiled lies and hypocrisy.But if we know that the people of God are first a fellowship of sinners, we are freed to hear the unconditional call of God's love and to confess our needs openly before our brothers and sisters. We know we are not alone in our sin. The fear and pride that cling to us like barnacles cling to others also. We are sinners together. In acts of mutual confession we release the power that heals. Our humanity is no longer denied, but transformed."
Author: Richard J. Foster

Some of the stuff that had come out of her mouth lately, about God or babies, made him wonder if she'd had a brain transplant at some point in the last ten years. It was funny what happened to people after forty, when they realized that our place here on earth was leased, not owned."
Author: Scott Turow
48. "When I got to college, the fake ID thing wasn't that important, since pretty much everyone could get away with drinking in New Orleans. But the drugs, well, that was a different story altogether, because drugs are every bit as illegal in New Orleans as anywhere else--at least, if you're black and poor, and have the misfortune of doing your drugs somewhere other than the dorms at Tulane University. But if you are lucky enough to be living at Tulane, which is a pretty white place, especially contrasted with the city where it's located, which is 65 percent black, then you are absolutely set."
Author: Tim Wise
