There's another essential reason why we must understand that addiction is an illness and not just bad behavior: We punish bad behavior. We treat illness."
Author: David Sheff

272. "Solitude is the furnace of transformation. Without solitude we remain victims of our society and continue to be entangled in the illusions of the false self. Jesus himself entered into this furnace. There he was tempted with the three compulsions of the world: to be relevant ('turn stones into loaves'), to be spectacular ('throw yourself down'), and to be powerful ('I will give you all these kingdoms'). There he affirmed God as the only source of his identity ('You must worship the Lord your God and serve him alone'). Solitude is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter - the struggle against the compulsions of the false self, and the encounter with the loving God who offers himself as the substance of the new self."
Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen

No, this is over, I have awakened, I have in-deed awakened and have not been born before this very day."

Author: John Eldredge
279. "Im Gegensatz zum Tier kann ich mich über die Zwänge der Natur erheben. Ich kann Sex haben, ohne mich vermehren zu wollen. Ich kann Substanzen konsumieren, die mich für eine Weile von der sklavischen Ankettung an den Körper erlösen. Ich kann den Überlebenstrieb ignorieren und mich in Gefahr bringen, allein um den Reiz der Herausforderung willen. Dem wahren Menschen genügt das Dasein nicht, wenn es ein bloßes Hier-Sein meint. Der Mensch muss sein Dasein erfahren. Im Schmerz. Im Rausch. Im Scheitern. Im Höhenflug. Im Gefühl der vollständigen Machtfülle über die eigene Existenz. Über das eigene Leben und den eigenen Tod. Das, meine arme, vertrocknete Mia Holl, ist Liebe."
Author: Juli Zeh

Author: Lee Pryke

285. "Books are better than television, the internet, or the computer for educating and maintaining freedom.Books matter because they state ideas and then attempt to thoroughly prove them. They have an advantage precisely because they slow down the process, allowing the reader to internalize, respond, react and transform. The ideas in books matter because time is taken to establish truth, and because the reader must take the time to consider each idea and either accept it or, if he rejects it, to think through sound reasons for doing so. A nation of people who write and read is a nation with the attention span to earn an education and free society if they choose."
Author: Oliver DeMille
286. "Myth Number 4: Social Media Is the Shiny New Thing. Two Years from Now, That Bubble Will Burst Yes, it is the shiny new thing. No, two years from now, that bubble will not burst. There is no bubble. What social media represents is an evolution in the field of communications, just as the Internet and mobility before it. The tools will change, the platforms will evolve, but the way in which people communicate with other people through digital networks and electronic devices has been fundamentally transformed through the development of social media. We did not grow tired of the telephone, of the..."

288. "She believes in love and romance. She believes her life is one day going to be transformed into something wonderful and exciting. She has hopes and fears and worries, just like anyone. Sometimes she feels frightened. Sometimes she feels unloved. Sometimes she feels she will never gain approval from those people who are most important to her. But she's brave and good-hearted and faces her life head-on."
Author: Sophie Kinsella
289. "I had a lot of different thoughts and ideas and always to transform, but I'm trying certain things that I feel my heart is really going for and that was one of the things that I initiated a few months ago."
Author: Steffi Graf
290. "The feminist story, she reminded me, is a counternarrative, a narrative of disobedience, a chronicle of battle, nto of surrender. Women who do not fit the mold are too often maneuvered, manipulated, and mangled into some culturally safe archetype. The makers of history transformed perpetua intoa cold, unfeeling mother - a villan of sorts. But who is to say that becoming a mother didn't also push Perpetua to become a martyr, didn't cause her to passionatley uphold her religious ideals because she wanted to offer her son the greatest gift she could - an ideal? Maybe, in the end, Perpetua's maternal instincts were precisely what gave her the strength to confront the burliest Roman gladiator and the to lie down with dignity?"
Author: Stephanie Staal

292. "I hear Warner laugh.I see him smile.It's the kind of smile that transforms him into someone else entirely, the kind of smile that puts stars in his eyes and a dazzle on his lips and I realize I've never seen him like this before. I've never seen his teeth--so straight, so white, nothing less than perfect. A flawless, flawless exterior for a boy with a black, black heart. It's hard to believe there's blood on the hands of the person I'm staring at. He looks soft and vulnerable--so human. His eyes are squinting from all his grinning and his cheeks are pink form the cold.He has dimples.He's easily the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.And I wish I'd never seen it."
Author: Tahereh Mafi

Author: Victor Hugo
296. "My misfortune is that I still resemble a man too much. I should liked to be wholly a beast like that goat. - Quasimodo"
Author: Victor Hugo
297. "For many great deeds are accomplished in times of squalid struggle. There is a kind of stubborn, unrecognized courage which in the lowest depths tenaciously resists the pressures of necessity and ill-doing; there are noble and obscure triumphs observed by no one, unacclaimed by any fanfare. Hardship, loneliness, and penury are a battlefield which has its own heroes, sometimes greater than those lauded in history. Strong and rare characters are thus created; poverty nearly always a foster-mother, may become a true mother, distress may be the nursemaid of pride, and misfortune the milk that nourishes great spirits."
Author: Victor Hugo
298. "It is the grand misfortune of my life that nobody will let me alone."
Author: Wilkie Collins
299. "In great misfortunes, people want to be alone. They have a right to be. And the misfortunes that occur within one are the greatest. Surely the saddest thing in the world is falling out of love--if once one has ever fallen in."
Author: Willa Cather
300. "... no one could say, looking at her lined, pale and puffy face, the shapeless garish sack she had double-pinned around her, or the misfocusing eyes and slack wet mouth, that she had led the right life, and she knew it, not even with Freud's fist could she repress that..."
