1. "Traim împreuna ?i suntem influen?a?i de cei din jur, pe care, la rândul nostru, îi influen?am; dar întotdeauna, indiferent ce am face, ramânem singuri. Martirii intra în arena ?inându-se de mâna, dar sunt rastigni?i unul câte unul. Îmbra?i?a?i, îndragosti?ii se straduiesc cu disperare sa-?i contopeasca extazul individual într-o unica transcendere de sine; zadarnic. Prin însa?i natura sa, orice spirit întrupat este osândit sa sufere ?i sa se bucure în solitudine. Senza?ii, sim?aminte, intui?ii, fantezii - toate sunt date sa ramâna personale ?i de necomunicat, în lipsa interven?iei simbolurilor ?i a intermediarilor. [...] De la familie la na?iune, orice grup constituie doar o societate de universuri insulare."
Author: Aldous Huxley

In a job or career, most of us are trying to specialize so much so that we've ended up with all of our eggs in the same basket. That's not managing risk at all. That's putting yourself at risk." - Chris Lutz"
Author: Chris Lutz

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
10. "Mi sentido de la iniciativa, la cualidad que me había llevado a ser lo que era, estaba agonizando poco a poco. Las dosis mínimas de alcaloides me paralizaban la voluntad, pero peor aún era esa sensación de impotencia y desesperanza. Pensaba ya que así era el mundo, que nunca cambiaría, que al fin y al cabo esto no era tan terrible, que uno siempre podía entrar en trance ante una hermosa pantalla o emborracharse con Gaseosa, o probar una de esas cápsulas verdes que pasaban de mano en mano con diversas consignas. Los muchachos esperarían con agrado el día de cobro."
Author: Frederik Pohl
11. "A trickle of blood came out under the door, crossed the living room, went out into the street, continued on in a straight line across the uneven terraces, went down steps and climbed over curbs, passed along the Street of the Turks, turned a corner to the right and another to the left, made a right angle at the Buendía house, went in under the closed door, crossed through the parlor, hugging the walls so as not to stain the rugs, went on to the other living room, made a wide curve to avoid the dining-room table, went along the porch with the begonias, and passed without being seen under Amaranta's chair as she gave an arithmetic lesson to Aureliano José, and went through the pantry and came out in the kitchen, where Úrsula was getting ready to crack thirty-six eggs to make bread."Holy Mother of God!" Úrsula shouted."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
12. "America comes with both rights and responsibilities. You have, for example, the right to free speech, but you have the responsibility to not yell 'fire' in a crowded theater. If you don't live up to that responsibility, you face certain consequences. It's a simple but effective formula. Unfortunately, tenured professors are completely insulated from it. They can scream fire in their classrooms all they want - and then hide behind their tenure if anyone questions them on it."
Author: Glenn Beck

Author: Goldwin Smith
14. "Love is the movement within life that carries us, that enables us, that causes us to break out of what Alan Watts calls the "skin-encapsulated ego." Without love, we are self-centered, but love enables us to move the center of our lives outside our ego. Therefore it expands our lives and, needless to say, enriches it. Any human being would give anything to love or be loved. When it really happens, it is like heaven on earth."
Author: Huston Smith
15. "Cinta itu seperti sulaman. Nggak semua cinta terajut dengan indah… Suatu saat mungkin kita akan kehabisan benang, dan harus berhenti di tengah jalan. Mungkin pula ketika kita merajut, tangan ini akan terluka, tertusuk oleh jarumnya. Tapi, jangan pernah menyerah. Jika benang rajutan milik kita telah habis, carilah benang pengganti, dan teruslah merajut. Ketika tangan ini terluka, obati, jangan biarkan terus terluka… Percayalah bahwa rasa sakit itu akan menghilang perlahan. Seperti itulah cinta."
Author: Irin Sintriana
16. "Whisper of yellow globesgleaming on lamp posts that swaylike bootleg licker drinkers in the fogand let your breath be moist against melike bright beads on yellow globestelephone the power-housethat the main wires are insulate(her words play up and down dewy corridors of billboards)then with your tongue remove the tapeand press your lips to minetill they are incandescent"
Author: Jean Toomer
17. "Credeam ca vrea sa calatoreasca, dar imi spune adevaruri pe care le stiu deja, ca nu e nevoie sa plece de pe insula ca sa vada lumea, ca are destule mari si orase in minte. Daca e asa, daca toti le avem, atunci poate ca lumea aceasta, luna si stelele sunt si ele plasmuiri ale mintii, insa ale unei minti cu o deschidere mai larga decat a noastra. Chiar daca cineva ma gandeste, sunt liber sa fac ce vreau. Nu poate fi precum sahul universul acesta care parca s-a gandit la toate, ci mai degraba ca un teatru cu decoruri miscatoare, unde putem trece si prin pereti, daca vrem, dar nu o facem. Caci ramanem fideli propriului sentiment al dramaticului." (pag 148)"
Author: Jeanette Winterson

21. "The mountain panorama was the backdrop to every photo taken here, the backdrop to everything. At first Ursula had thought it beautiful, now she was beginning to find its magnificence oppressive. The great icy crags and the rushing waterfalls, the endless pine trees--nature and myth fused to form the Germanic sublimated soul. German Romanticism, it seemed to Ursula, was write large and mystical, the English Lakes seemed tame by comparison. And the English soul, if it resided anywhere, was surely in some unheroic back garden--a patch of lawn, a bed of roses, a row of runner beans."
Author: Kate Atkinson
22. "He was born a politician.No, Ursula thought, he was born a baby, like everyone else. And this is what he has chosen to become."

Author: Kate Atkinson
25. "The mime must first of all be aware of this boundless contact with things. There is no insulating layer of air between the man and the outside world. Any man who moves causes ripples in the ambient word in the same way a fish does when it moves in the water."

26. "An ideological movement is a collection of people many of whom could hardly bake a cake, fix a car, sustain a friendship or a marriage, or even do a quadratic equation, yet they believe they know how to rule the world. The university, in which it is possible to combine theoretical pretension with comprehensive ineptitude, has become the natural habitat of the ideological enthusiast. A kind of adventure playground, carefully insulated from reality in order to prevent absent-minded professors from bumping into things as they explore transcendental realms, has become the institutional base for civilizational self-hatred."
Author: Kenneth Minogue

Which is more likely? That the universe was designed just for us, or that we see the universe as having been designed just for us?"
Author: Michael Shermer
33. "Be careful, fathers, when you inordinately desire things to be better for your children than they were for you.

Author: Neal A. Maxwell
34. "- La gente debería tenerle miedo a Ursula Monkton - afirmé- Quizá. Y a qué crees que le tiene miedo Ursula Monkton?- No sé. Por qué crees que le tiene miedo a algo? Es una adulta, no? Y los adultos y los monstruos no tiene miedo.- Oh, los monstruos sí que tienen miedo - dijo Lettie -. Por eso son monstruos. y en cuanto a los adultos... - Dejó de hablar, se frotó su pecosa nariz con un dedo - Te voy a decir algo muy importante: por dentro, los adultos tampoco parecen adultos. Por fuera son grandes y desconsiderados y siempre parece que saben lo que hacen. Por dentro, siguen siendo exactamente igual que han sido siempre. Como cuando tenían tu edad. La verdad es que los adultos no existen. Ni uno solo, en todo el mundo."
Author: Neil Gaiman

Author: Randy Alcorn

Author: Richard Dawkins
39. "It is tempting to look upon England as a sort of musical Australia, an island culture inhabited by, and sustaining, its own insular fauna – musical kangaroos, koalas, and platypuses. That, however, would be very much to exaggerate England's musical isolation or independence. It is also a considerable exaggeration to view the English preference for thirds as something altogether alien or opposed to continental practice, as if only in remote geographical corners (and behind closed doors, among consenting adults) could harmonies unsanctioned by Pythagoras or the Musica enchiriadis be furtively enjoyed."
Author: Richard Taruskin
40. "Our inner dialogue is frequently composed of old tape loops that we run again and again... The normal personality marshals sufficient defense mechanisms to exclude dangerous and unknown stimuli and just enough windows to let in an occasional wandering minstrel. Neurotic identity crises come when our defense mechanisms have been too successful and we're encapsulated in the fortress we have constructed with nothing to refresh us in our solitary confinement. So we play the old movies with their stale fears and their unrealistic hopes until we become bored enough to risk disarmament and engagement."
Author: Sam Keen
41. "It was as though everything that mattered was encapsulated in that last moment of my blissful state of oblivion."
Author: Sarah Swainson

Author: Sigitas Parulskis
44. "It does not suit the world to hear that people who are leading a high life, an enviable life, a privileged life are as miserable most days as anybody else, despite the fact that it must be obvious they would be - given that we are all agreed that money and fame do not bring happiness. Instead the world would prefer to enjoy the idea, against what it knows to be true, that wealth and fame do in fact insulate and protect against misery and it would rather we shut up if we are planning to indicate otherwise."
Author: Stephen Fry
45. "The underlying and more ominous question is whether the story of our species — the greater human narrative — has simply become too enormous, too confused and terrifying, for us to grapple with. This might explain why so many of us now rely on a cacophony of unreliable narrators to shape our view of the world and ourselves . . . these voices deal in the same commodity: a fraudulent folklore whose central aim is insulate us from the true nature of our predicament, to manipulate our anxieties, to goad us into empty consumption or snag us in cycles of grievance and panic."
Author: Steve Almond
46. "And knowing what happens on average is a good place to start. By so doing, we insulate ourselves from the tendency to build our thinking - our daily decisions, our laws, our governance - on exceptions and anomalies rather than on reality"

47. "Just wish it. But remember, it will only work if it's what you most desire. Do it now. We're running out of time." WHAT I MOST DESIRE. WHAT I MOST DESIRE. I looked into his electric eyes and made my wish. Then I popped the bean into my mouth and swallowed it whole. For a moment, the world stood still. We sat in a silent bubble, just us two, insulated from the snow and the wind. His eyes widened. "But, Katrina, that wish was supposed to be for you." "It's what I most desire." And it was."
Author: Suzanne Selfors
48. "This was the Karachi now – barbed wires protecting consulates, the pretentious covering themselves with faces of those who were hiding behind those barbed wires. This was Karachi – gaudy and luxurious, with a façade of glamor, ignoring the truth underneath. But Sophie was no cynic, and still loved the city she had returned to. ‘You can't hate what's yours,' she smiled to herself."
Author: Umair Naeem
49. "Ölçüsüzlügün hüküm sürdügü bir yerde sayginin esamesi bile okunmaz. O zaman doga da sapar yolundan. Uysal sular taskinlara dönüsür bir anda, bir anda toprak batakliga dönüsür, haklilar degil güçlüler kazanir bütün davalari. Zalim evlat kiyar babasinin canina, hakkin hukukun yerine zorbalik adalet dagitmaya baslayinca da hakliyla haksizi ayirt etmenin imkani kalmaz. Adaletin de adi kalir, kendi yok olur gider. Güç, iradenin emrinden çikip ihtirasin emrine girer ve istahli bir kurt gibi önüne ne çikarsa saldirip kemire kemire yok eder. En sonunda da kendi basini yer..."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "O bilir.Susulacak zamani o bilir."

I'm a strong nonbeliever in the Christmas letter where you don't really read it because it's just full of kind of meaningless information. It doesn't really resonate to the person reading it, but it means so much to the person that wrote it."
