2. "Dar acum, in loc de ratiune, multa lume se foloseste de dorinte, vise, mantre si incantatii. Incearca sa se vindece folosind cristale, magneti si ierburi cu proprietati necunoscute. Ti se ofera o pastila facuta din frunza unei plante necunoscute si ti se spune: "Ia-o, n-are cum sa-ti faca rau, e naturala." Dar naturala e si matraguna."
Author: Alan Alda
3. "Într-adevar, despre cine si despre ce pot sa spun: «Cunosc asta!» Îmi pot pune inima la încercare si socotesc ca exista. Lumea aceasta o pot atinge si socotesc de asemenea ca exista. Aici se opreste stiinta mea, tot restul e constructie. Caci, daca încerc sa înteleg acest eu de a carui existenta sînt sigur, daca încerc sa-1 definesc si sa-1 rezum, el nu mai este decît o apa care-mi curge printre degete. Pot sa desenez rînd pe rînd toate chipurile pe care stie a le lua si pe toate cele ce i-au fost atribuite, educatia, originea, înflacararea sau tacerile, maretia sau josnicia. Dar nu poti aditiona chipuri. Propria-mi inima va ramîne totdeauna pentru mine de nedefinit."

9. "As they walked out onto Second Avenue, with David in a body bag, there was one last surreal moment. The singer and composer Diamanda Galás happened to be walking by. She and David had never met, but they'd spoken once on the phone. She shared his commitment to addressing AIDS, in her case through 'The Plague Mass,' which showcased her five-octave range and fierce persona.Galás does not remember being on Second Avenue that night, but she made an indelible impression on Zimmerman and Glantzman.She had walked by, but as they were putting David into the hearse, she spun around and ran back, yelling, 'Who is that? Is that David Wojnarowicz?' Zimmerman and Brown didn't answer. What Glantzman remembers is that Diamanda Galás was there at the door, screaming. 'As if our feelings were amplified,' said Glantzman. 'Hysterical screaming."
Author: Cynthia Carr
10. "Što je bilo, bilo je. Prošlost živi u nama i ne možemo je izbrisati. Pošto su snovi slika onoga sveta, i dokaz njegovog postojanja, susrecemo se u snovima; kleci kraj furune u koju trpa vlažna drva; ili me doziva promuklim glasom. Tada se budim i palim svetlo. Kajanje i bol se polako pretvaraju u sumornu radost secanja. Naš dugi, strasni i strašni roman ispunio je moj život, osmislio ga je, i ja ne tražim nikakve nadoknade. Mene nece biti u indeksu knjiga Mendela Osipovica, u njegovim biografijama ili u fusnoti uz neku pesmu. Ja, gospodine, jesam delo Mendela Osipovica, kao što je i on moje delo. Ima li lepšeg providenja?"
Author: Danilo Kiš

13. "There are people nobody notices, but the world revolves around them. They're the quiet ones, the strong, peaceful ones, who form the unbreakable hub for a bunch of fragile spokes. True families aren't bred, they're spun together. And at their center, at the center of the infinite wheel of every family of every kind, blood or otherwise, there is a hub, that person, those people, who hold the wheel together and keep it turning."
Author: Deborah Smith

Author: Ðorde Balaševic

16. "La cei o sutã de ani ai mei pot spune cãºtiu despre ce vorbesc. Cu cât îmbãtrâneºti maimult, cu atâta se cade sã ai bunul gust de aaprecia viaþa. Trebuie sã devii rafinat, artist. Ladouãzeci de ani, orice cretin ºtie sã se bucure deviaþã, dar la o sutã, când nici mãcar sã te miºtinu mai eºti în stare, trebuie sã ºtii sã-þi puiinteligenþa la lucru.Nu-mi dau seama dacã am reuºit sã-iconving pe deplin. Fã-le tu o vizitã. Du tu pânãla capãt ce-am început. Eu mã simt niþel camobosit."
Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt
17. "– Întrebam si eu, nu-i nevoie sa facetimutra asta, domnule doctor. De altfel, daca e sa fim sinceri, tin sa va spun ca, din partea mea, am fost cât se poate de corect în ce priveste medicamentele, iar dumneavoastra de asemeneaîn privinta bolii. Asa ca terminati odata cu aerul asta de vinovatie. Nu e vina dumneavoastra daca trebuie sa dati vesti neplacute oamenilor anuntându-i ca sufera de tot felul de boli incurabile cu nume latinesti. Destindeti-va nitel,relaxati-va, ce naiba, ca doar nu dumneavoastra sunteti Dumnezeu Tatal. Nu sunteti dumneavoastra cel care comanda naturii.Dumneavoastra nu sunteti decât un reparator. Nu mai fiti asa încordat, domnule doctor,ce naiba, nu va mai dati atâta importanta, altminteri nu veti putea continua multa vreme meseria asta. Uitati-va numai un pic ce mutrafaceti!"
Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt

Author: Frédéric Beigbeder
19. "Mr. Lecky never got any farther than the third floor. Not conscious of impossible fatigue, feeling less than his distress of the morning, he was notwithstanding seized by a faintness. This sudden spinning dizzied him. A darkness as impalpable, more discrete, yet blacker than night's, spun out from dancing points to overlapping disks. They were so wide, so close to his eyes, that he could not strike them off. He had only a second given him to see and apprehend. This same second loosened his grip on consciousness. He seemed to let go, hardly struggling. His muscles let go everywhere, too. He had time to hear, like some remote accident, the bang of the shotgun, gone, the smash of glass in at least one flashlight lens. This was the thin segment of the actual second, and Mr. Lecky knew nothing of himself slumping to lie on the stairs with the things he had dropped."
Author: James Gould Cozzens

You may be hot,but your sister clearly inherited all the brains in the family.""Did she call me hot?" Ash whispered to me, looking more annoyed than he ever did when someone called him a jerk."She hasn't been on a date in six months", Derek rumbled behind us. "No offense, but as long as aren't related to her, you're fair game. Hell, even--"Tori spun on him. "I didn't know.""Um, wait a sec," Corey said. "So Ash is hot and I'm seriously cute? Is there a difference?""Yes," Hayley said, and propelled him through the line."
Author: Kelley Armstrong
24. "On this voyage, I couldn't help but think we need need. We need to be forced to go outside. We need to be forced to depend on one another. we need to be forced to sacrifice, to grow a garden, to fix a rood, to interact with neighbors. Nature has been all around me as a boy. It unleashed terrifying storms, spun circular cycles, inflicted bone-chilling, cold and renewed itself with springy revivifications. Yet I was completely oblivious to it all. I was playing video games."
Author: Ken Ilgunas
25. "After Davy had gone to bed Anne wandered down to Victoria Island and sat there alone, curtained with fine-spun, moonlit gloom, while the water laughed around her in a duet of brook and wind."
Author: L.M. Montgomery
26. "Love is a fiction, a fable, an ode spun by poets and drunks, a fantastical tale told across one thousand and one nights, it is the genie in the bottle, it is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it's the lie designed to seduce you."
Author: Lauren Blakely
27. "Another page turns on the calendar, April now, not March..........I am spinning the silk threads of my story, weaving the fabric of my world...I spun out of control. Eating was hard. Breathing was hard. Living was hardest.I wanted to swallow the bitter seeds of forgetfulness...Somehow, I dragged myself out of the dark and asked for help.I spin and weave and knit my words and visions until a life starts to take shape.There is no magic cure, no making it all go away forever. There are only small steps upward; an easier day, an unexpected laugh, a mirror that doesn't matter anymore.I am thawing."
Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
28. "They all watched in silence as the tall Southerner strode towards the doorway. George Peabody,a hot-headed boy who couldn't resist making one remark from the safety of the corner, muttered an insult under his breath.Heath stopped and turned around, giving him a measuring glance, but before he could make a reply, Lucy rounded fiercely on the boy. "George Peabody, you button your mouth!""He'd better see to his breeches first," Heath said, and touched the brim of his hat respectfully to Lucy before slipping out the door.Automatically they all looked at George's trousers, discovering that one of the buttons did indeed need to be fastened. The tension broke, and as the flushed boy spun around to restore his injured dignity, they all chuckled. Even Daniel had to smile. "Impudent Reb," he said ruefully, and no one disagreed."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
29. "- Nu vreau sa fac ceva ce o sa regre?i. Spatele lui Grace se arcui sub degetele mele de parca atingerea mea o adusese la via?a. - Atunci, nu te opri. Îmi imaginasem ca o sa îmi spuna asta într-atâtea moduri diferite, dar niciuna dintre fanteziile mele nu ajunsese atât de aproape de realitate."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
30. "...like a small stone deflected off a larger one, my brother had spun off toward the Almighty, though to my mind the events of that morning could just as well have cast him the other way."
Author: Mark Slouka
31. "Timpul este un "cum" . Cînd ne întrebam ce este timpul, nu trebuie sa ne agatam grabiti de un raspuns ( de genul "asta sau asta este timpul" ), care sa contina mereu un "ce" . Sa nu privim catre raspuns, ci sa repetam întrebarea. Ce s-a întîmplat cu întrebarea ? S-a modificat. întrebarea "Ce este timpul ?" a devenit întrebarea "Cine este timpul ?". Mai exact : sîntem noi însine timpul ? Sau, si mai exact : sînt eu timpul meu ? Cu aceasta m-am apropiat cel mai mult de el si, daca înteleg corect întrebarea, atunci o data cu ea totul devine serios. Prin urmare, asemenea interogare este modul cel mai adecvat de a accede si de a ma raporta la timp, ca la unul ce este "de fiecare data al meu: Dasein-ul este atunci cel problematic."
Author: Martin Heidegger
32. "He's never fired a gun in his life," Palamedes said. "He abhors weapons."As Palamedes spoke,the group could see Shakespeare put the tonbogiri to his shoulder,then jerk three times.Two of the attacking vimanas spun out of control,both of them crashing into two more. The flour flaming craft spiraled into the sea."But then he's always been full of surprises," Palamedes added."
Author: Michael Scott
33. "The woman he had loved most (he was thirty at the time) would tell him (he was nearly in despair when he heard it) that she held on to life by a thread. Yes, she did want to live, life gave her great joy, but she also knew that her 'i want to live' was spun from the threads of a spiderweb. It takes so little, so infinitely little, for someone to find himself on the other side of the border, where everything-- love, convictions, faith, history-- no longer has meaning. The whole mystery of human life resides in the fact that it is spent in the immediate proximity of, and even in direct contact with, that border, that it is separated from it not by kilometers but by barely a millimeter."
Author: Milan Kundera
34. "To je ona ljudska sklonost, ispunjena olovnim samosažaljenjem, da se svaka stvar, svaki vedar i svijetao životni trenutak, zagorca uvjerenjem kako ti netko cini nepravdu, kako nisi nagraden po svojim zaslugama i kako, sve u svemu, jadnijega i nesretnijeg od sebe okolo i ne vidiš. Tako se kvari vlastiti život, zamara se i ojaduje bližnje; tako se ostaje sam, jer je s ogorcenima teško živjeti. To ja o sebi znam, i to je takoder moj identitet."
Author: Miljenko Jergović
35. "Dar iubirea aceasta ar putea sa-mi revele ceva. Poate te-am întâlnit si m-am îndragostit de d-ta ca sa ma înveti ceva. Învata-ma, atunci! Spune-mi de ce mi-ai aparut în cale. Nu te-am întâlnit asa, din întâmplare, doar ca sa flirtez cu d-ta; nu-mi place sa flirtez. Nu mi-am înselat niciodata sotia. Dar am simtit, întâlnindu-te, ca mi s-a facut un semn."
Author: Mircea Eliade
36. "CHOW^TM contained spun, plaited, and woven protein molecules, capped and coded, carefully designed to be ignored by even the most ravenous digestive tract enzymes; no-cal sweeteners; mineral oils replacing vegetable oils; fibrous materials, colorings, and flavorings. The end result was a foodstuff almost indistinguishable from any other except for two things. Firstly, the price, which was slightly higher, and secondly, the nutritional content, which was roughly equivalent to that of a Sony Walkman."
Author: Neil Gaiman
37. "Poetry comes fine spun from a mind at peace."
Author: Ovid
38. "She had been like a roller coaster aficionado for whom tame county fair roller coasters were as good as the ones that spun you upside down and dropped you so fast your eyes turned red. It was all just a ride."
Author: Peter Straub
39. "But before he could either comfort me or commit further acts of violence upon my person, I spun away from him and made my drama queen moment complete by running away."
Author: Rachel Hawkins
40. "I usually make it a point not to cry in front of people, especially hot boys that I'd been totally crushing on before they'd tried to choke me.But for some reason, hearing that there was yet another thing I didn't know just sent me right on over the edge.Archer,to his credit, didn't look exactly horrified by my sobbing, and he even reached out like he might grab hold of my shoulders.Or possibly smack me.But before he could either comfort me or commit further acts of violence upon my person,I spun away from him and made my drama queen moment complete by running away.It wasn't pretty."
Author: Rachel Hawkins
41. "He snorted and hit me in the solar plexus. I bent over and took hold of the room with both hands and spun it. When I had it nicely spinning I gave it a full swing and hit myself on the back of the head with the floor."
Author: Raymond Chandler
42. "Summers was simply a master explainer, able to deftly boil down the complexities of economic and financial, and to put them in terms the non-expert could understand. He was brilliant at cultivating a sense of control, even as events spun far beyond what could be managed with any certainty. He could will into being the confidence that eluded others, those less self-assured and, maybe sensibly, on humbler terms with the world."
Author: Ron Suskind
43. "No, you're not. Go coax the shirt off someone else. Your charm doesn't work on me. I have a force field deflecting it." "Please. You'd have no idea what to do if I turned it on full blast." "You're not scaring me." "Yes, I am. And that's why I'm stopping. I want to talk about it, Julia," he said. "But not now." He rolled onto his back, the golden hairs on his legs and arms sparkling like spun sugar."
Author: Sarah Addison Allen
44. "Xypher flashed himself into Simone's bedroom, expecting to find her there.It was empty.Closing his eyes, he sensed for presences in the condo. There no Simone, but Jesse and Gloria in Jesse's room.Without thinking, he flashed in there to find the two ghosts naked on the bed. "Oh g-ds, I'm blind." He spun around to give them his back."Don't you knock?" Jesse said."
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
45. "Sa te temi de moarte, cetateni, nu este nimic altceva decât sa-ti închipui ca esti întelept fara sa fii, înseamna sa crezi ca stii ceea ce nu stii. Caci nimeni nu stie ce este moartea si nici daca nu e cumva cel mai mare bine pentru om, dar toti se tem de ea ca si cum ar fi siguri ca e cel mai mare rau. Iar acest fel de a gândi cum sa nu fie tocmai prostia aceea vrednica de dispret - de a crede ca stii ceea ce nu stii? Eu însa, atenieni, poate ca tocmai prin aceasta si în acest punct ma deosebesc de cei mai multi (chiar daca ar însemna sa spun ca într-o privinta sunt mai întelept decât altul), si anume ca, daca nu stiu mare lucru despre cele din Hades, îmi si dau seama ca nu stiu."
Author: Socrates
46. "It occured to her that pleasure, no matter how deep, was a ghostly, ephemeral thing. Love might make the world go round, but she was convinced it ws the cries of the badly wounded andf deeply afflicted which spun the universe on the great glass pole of it's axis."
Author: Stephen King
47. "Imagination transforms one substance into another. It changes what is into what might be, what was into what might have been. Straw becomes gold, gold straw, and neither is more real nor, I submit, more precious than the other. Pebbles turn into luminous pearls and pearls into little gray rocks, both solid and beautiful, both essential. Human beings take shape from clay, angels' wings are spun out of water, fire gives rise to the long tongues of demons, love emerges out of thin air, and the basic elements reconstitute themselves again and again."-The Man In The Ceiling"
Author: Steve Rasnic Tem
48. "…deceitful!" she decided with a little bounce of fury that briefly ballooned the silk of her trousers. "There! You deceitful …""Gillia…""…misleading, dishonest, insincere…""Those are all the same words, Gill—""Ooh! Liar!" She'd managed to get her hands on a small pillow. He ducked just as it whizzed past him. In justice, however, it did strike the mosaic vase behind him on an engraved mahogany pedestal, and it tipped and spun on its base before landing in a shattered heap on the bare floor. "Now, look what you've done!" she accused tearfully and bolted from the room."
Author: V.S. Carnes
49. "Asa, intr-o zi de vara valurile se aduna, se inalta, cumpanindu-se, si cad; se aduna si cad; si universul intreg pare sa spuna, sa spuna mereu, "asta e tot" mereu mai apasat, iar inima din trupul care sta intins la soare pe tarm spune si ea. Asta e tot. Nu te mai teme, spune inima. Nu te mai teme,spune inima, incredintandu-si povara vreunei mari care suspina obstesc pentru toate tristetile; si reia, incepe, aduna, lasa sa cada."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "That perhaps is your task--to find the relation between things that seem incompatible yet have a mysterious affinity, to absorb every experience that comes your way fearlessly and saturate it completely so that your poem is a whole, not a fragment; to re-think human life into poetry and so give us tragedy again and comedy by means of characters not spun out at length in the novelist's way, but condensed and synthesized in the poet's way--that is what we look to you to do now."
Author: Virginia Woolf

Today's Quote

In a sense, the first (if not necessarily the prime) function of a novelist, of ANY artist, is to entertain. If the poem, painting, play or novel does not immediately engage one's surface interest then it has failed. Whatever else it may or may not be, art is also entertainment. Bad art fails to entertain. Good art does something in addition."
