2. "Kloe i Baltasar su imali svoj sopstsveni kodeks casti: likvidirali su samo sljam i cistili svijet od ubica, gmazova, licemerja, fanatika, smrknutih dogmata i svakojakih kretena koji jos vise upropascuavaju svijet u ime zastave, bogova, jezika, rasa ili bilo kakvog drugog djubreta kojim mogu da prekriju svoju pohlepu i svoju bedu. Za mene su oni bili krivovjerni heroji, kao sto svi stvari heroji i jesu."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

6. "É bom quando nossa consciência sofre grandes ferimentos, pois isso a torna mais sensível a cada estímulo. Penso que devemos ler apenas livros que nos ferem, que nos afligem. Se o livro que estamos lendo não nos desperta como um soco no crânio, por que perder tempo lendo-o? Para que ele nos torne felizes, como você diz? Oh Deus, nós seríamos felizes do mesmo modo se esses livros não existissem. Livros que nos fazem felizes poderíamos escrever nós mesmos num piscar de olhos. Precisamos de livros que nos atinjam como a mais dolorosa desventura, que nos assolem profundamente – como a morte de alguém que amávamos mais do que a nós mesmos –, que nos façam sentir que fomos banidos para o ermo, para longe de qualquer presença humana – como um suicídio. Um livro deve ser um machado para o mar congelado que há dentro de nós"
Author: Franz Kafka
7. "Che pensieri soavi,che speranze, che cori, o Silvia mia!Quale allor ci appariala vita umana e il fato!Quando sovviemmi di cotanta speme,un affetto mi premeacerbo e sconsolato,e tornami a doler di mia sventura.O natura, o natura,perché non rendi poiquel che prometti allor? perché di tantoinganni i figli tuoi?"
Author: Giacomo Leopardi
8. "Og nú heldur hann þeir svensku séu ekki jafngáfaðir og hann. Ég skal segja þér: þeir eru gáfaðri en hann, þeir eru svo gáfaðir að einginn kraftur fær þá til að trúa því að það samsafn af lúsugum betlurum norðrí raskati, sem kallar sig íslendinga og nú eru bráðum allir dauðir guðisélof, hafi skrifað fornsögurnar."
Author: Halldór Laxness
9. "You know Sven? The man who takes care of the gym?' he asked. He waited till he got a nod from Nicholson. 'Well, if Sven dreamed tonight that his dog died, he'd have a very, very bad night's sleep, because he's very fond of that dog. But when he woke up in the morning, everything would be all right. He'd know it was only a dream.'Nicholson nodded. 'What's the point exactly?'The point is if his dog really died, it would be exactly the same thing. Only he wouldn't know it. I mean he wouldn't wake up till he died himself."
Author: J.D. Salinger

Author: Jess C. Scott
13. "Yeah." Sven said. "The stuff she just said. Let's not get all killy."
Author: Jesse Petersen
14. "Svengal lay groaning on the turf. His thighs were sheer agony. His buttocks ached. His calf muscles were on fire. Now, afterhe had tumbled off the small pony he was riding and thudded heavily to the turf on the point of his shoulder, the shoulder would hurt too. He concentrated on trying to find one part of his body that wasn't a giant source of pain and failed miserably. He opened his eyes. The first thing he saw was the face of the elderly pony that he had been riding peered down at him.Now what made you do a strange thing like that? The creature seemed to be asking."
Author: John Flanagan
15. "Young men!" he snorted to Erak. "They think a pretty face can cure every ill.""Some of us can remember back that far. Halt," Erak told him with a grin. "I suppose that's all far behind an old hack like you. Svengal told me you were settling down. Some plump, motherly widow seizing her last chance with a broken-down old gray bear, is she?"Erak, of course, had been told by Svengal that Halt had recently married a great beauty. But he enjoyed getting a reaction from the smaller man. Halt's one-eyed stare locked onto the Oberjarl."When we get back, I'd advise you not to refer to Pauline as a ‘plump, motherly widow' in her hearing. She's very good with that dagger she carries and you need your ears to keep that ridiculous helmet of yours in place."
Author: John Flanagan
16. "You should have left him to wander," Svengal said coldly. Erak looked at him, eyebrows raised."Would you?" he asked, and Svengal hesitated. At the end, Toshak had fought well and that counted for a lot of Skandians."No," he admitted."
Author: John Flanagan

Author: Knut Hamsun
20. "Forse, quando commemoriamo la guerra, dovremmo toglierci i vestiti e dipingerci di blu e camminare per tutto il giorno a quattro zampe grufolando come maiali. questo sarebbe indubbiamente più appropriato di qualsiasi nobile discorso e sventolio di bandiere e present'arm coi fucili ben oliati."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
21. "Nada disso vai melhorar a qualidade das torradeiras , mas é um lance viajante que faz com que você passe o dia inteiro tentando desvendar a questão."
Author: Libba Bray
22. "Ramon looked closely at the little guy as he ate. "Maybe he's Jewish. I mean, if Sammy Davis Jr. could convert to Judaism, why not a chupacabra? We should name him Harry Mendelbaum."I held up my arms in protest. "You're all racist. Now shut up. We'll call him Taco von Precious of Svenenstein. There, everybody happy?""Isn't von the same thing as of?" Frank asked. "Wouldn't that be kind of redundant?""You're redundant," I said."
Author: Lish McBride
23. "Um artista pode sofrer muito, ser muito infeliz até à morte. Acredito mesmo que entre os artistas se enfileirem alguns dos grandes desgraçados da terra. No entanto, na desventura dum artista - por amarga que ela tenha sido - brilhou sempre um raio de sol. A sua desgraça não foi com certeza a duma existência vazia e desoladora - que é a maior e mais real miséria deste mundo."
Author: Mário De Sá Carneiro
24. "Las mujeres tratan de compensar sus desventajas ocultándose, en lugar de abrirse paso hasta ocupar el promer plano, como sí hacen a menudo sus homólogos masculinos. Y si a veces se sienten tratadas injustamente, se encogen de hombros y buscan el fallo en ellas mismas en lugar de enfrentarse a la situación."
Author: Meredith Haaf
25. "A ironia irrita. Não porque escarnece ou ataca, mas porque nos priva das certezas, desvendando o mundo como ambiguidade."

Author: Nalini Singh
27. "Da anni e anni, come una spettatrice, ella aveva guardato alle leggi degli uomini, alle istituzioni dei legislatori e del clero, con un compiuto distacco: come gli indiani potevano guardare alla toga, alla galera, al focolare, alla chiesa. Il suo destino e le sue sventure l'avevano resa libera. La lettera scarlatta era il suo passaporto per talune regioni, nelle quali nessuna altra donna avrebbe osato avventurarsi. Vergogna, disperazione, solitudine: ecco i maestri che avevano rinvigorito la sua forza istintiva sebbene con insegnamenti molto difettosi."
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Author: Octavio Paz
29. "Yo no soy entendida en política ni economista. Soy simplemente una mujer que padeció, que perdió a su marido, a sus padres, a sus hijos y a sus amigos. Yo sé que el mundo tendrá que compartir colectivamente la responsabilidad. Los alemanes pecaron criminalmente, pero lo mismo hicieron las demás naciones aunque sólo sea por negarse a creer y a afanarse día y noche en salvar a los desventurados y desposeídos, por cuantos medios estuviesen a su alcance. Sé que si la gente de todo el mundo se propone que de ahora en adelante reine una justicia indivisible y que no haya más Hitlers, algos se conseguirá. Indudablemente, todos aquellos cuyas manos se hayan manchado con sangre nuestra, bien sea directa bien indirectamente, tienen que pagar por los crímenes que han cometido, lo mismo si son hombres que si son mujeres."
Author: Olga Lengyel
30. "Don't blame me, Pongo,' said Lord Ickenham, 'if Lady Constance takes her lorgnette to you. God bless my soul, though, you can't compare the lorgnettes of to-day with the ones I used to know as a boy. I remember walking one day in Grosvenor Square with my aunt Brenda and her pug dog Jabberwocky, and a policeman came up and said the latter ought to be wearing a muzzle. My aunt made no verbal reply. She merely whipped her lorgnette from its holster and looked at the man, who gave one choking gasp and fell back against the railings, without a mark on him but with an awful look of horror in his staring eyes, as if he had seen some dreadful sight. A doctor was sent for, and they managed to bring him round, but he was never the same again. He had to leave the Force, and eventually drifted into the grocery business. And that is how Sir Thomas Lipton got his start."
Author: P.G. Wodehouse
31. "A guardar bene le cose del mondo, si scopre che la più grande sventura che possa colpire una donna è l'impotenza del suo uomo"
Author: Saikaku Ihara
32. "Despite that I was sober as a judge, I felt drunk from Jared's teasing . Of course he thought that was hilarious and was very pleased with himself. So I bit him. The thing about Sventé saliva was that it could spark the ‘blood donor' to have an orgasm if the vampire drank from them for more than ten seconds … I counted to eight before releasing him, but the damage was done – he was as horny as I was and more than ready to fuck. About bloody time. "I take it you're ready to leave now." His lopsided smile had me smiling back. "You're a tricky bitch, aren't you? I can respect that." He teleported us both to the living area of our apartment, where we instantly dived on each other."
Author: Suzanne Wright
33. "I saw a DJ from Germany called Sven Vath. I saw him in the club, he played for six hours and I was just totally intrigued, because everything he played I'd never heard before and everything he did I'd never seen before. I was so blown away by what he did."
Author: Tiesto
34. "One of the first speaking roles I had was in a film called 'Svengali', with Peter O'Toole and Elizabeth Ashley. I was a waiter, and I had about three lines. And I was ready! I had been around people like that, and I knew they were just actors. All the work I had done, it was all there, and I felt like I knew all the mechanics."
Author: Tobin Bell
35. "Sven knew jungles better than anyone; he'd spent his childhood in the Swedish outlands, an unforgiving place."
Author: Vernon D. Burns
36. "Questa luce, cioè la storia, è spietata; essa ha questo di strano e di divino, e cioè che quantunque sia luce, e precisamente perché è luce, mette spesso dell'ombra là dove si vedono raggi; dello stesso uomo fa due fantasmi differenti, e l'uno attacca l'altro, e ne fa giustizia, e le tenebre del despota lottano con lo splendore del capitano. Da qui, una misura più vera nell'apprezzamento definitivo dei popoli. Babilonia violata diminuisce Alessandro; Roma incatenata diminuisce Cesare; Gerusalemme uccisa diminuisce Tito. La tirannia segue il tiranno. E' una sventura per un uomo lasciare dietro di sé dell'ombra che ha la forma sua."
Author: Victor Hugo
37. "[The Edwardian era] was a time of booming trade, of great prosperity and wealth in which the pageant of London Society took place year after year in a setting of traditional dignity and beauty. The great houses—Devonshire, Dorchester, Grosvenor, Stafford and Lansdowne House—had not yet been converted into museums, hotels and flats, and there we danced through the long summer nights till dawn. The great country-houses still flourished in their glory, and on their lawns in the green shade of trees the art of human intercourse was exquisitely practised by men and women not yet enslaved by household cares and chores who still had time to read, to talk, to listen and to think."
Author: Violet Bonham Carter
