2. "From the time I arrived in British East Africa at the indifferent age of four and went through the barefoot stage of early youth hunting wild pig with the Nandi, later training racehorses for a living, and still later scouting Tanganyika and the waterless bush country between the Tana and Athi Rivers, by aeroplane, for elephant, I remained so happily provincial I was unable to discuss the boredom of being alive with any intelligence until I had gone to London and lived there for a year."

3. "With a deep sigh, Lucius resumed pacing. "Honestly, I can't stand this going around anymore. The story is quite simple. You, Antanasia, are the last of a long line of powerful vampires. The Dragomirs. Vampire royalty." Now that made me laugh, a squeaky, kind of hysterical laugh. "Vampire royalty. Right." Yes. Royalty. And that is the last part of the story, which your parents still seem reluctant to relate." Lucius leaned over the table across from me, bracing his arms, staring me down. "You are a vampire princess—the heir to the Dragomir leadership. I am a vampire prince. The heir to an equally powerful clan, the Vladescus. More powerful, I would say, but that's not the point. We were pledged to each other in an engagement ceremony shortly after our births."

4. "What was true of an ancient community of Christian believers struggling with a powerful and appealing philosophy is also true for Christians in a postmodern context. Arguments that deconstruct the regimes of truth at work in the late modern culture of global capitalism are indispensable. So also is a deeper understanding of the counterideological force of the biblical tradition. But such arguments are no guarantee that the biblical metanarrative will not be co-opted for ideological purposes of violent exclusion, nor do arguments prove the truth of the gospel. Only the nonideological, embracing, forgiving and shalom-filled life of a dynamic Christian community formed by the story of Jesus will prove the gospel to be true and render the idolatrous alternatives fundamentally implausible."
Author: Brian J. Walsh

Regalateglieli. Ci sono abbastanza parole per noi tutti."

9. "… eram prea tanara atunci sa-mi dau seama cum simple considerente geografice sau temporale puteau sa separe oamenii. Acestea sunt motivele pentru care n-ar fi trebuit sa ma intreb ce m-am intrebat mai apoi, in timp ce ma uitam la reflexiile noastre sparte in oglinda – daca exista oare ceva, chiar si ghinionul, care san e tina legate una de cealalta in toti anii care aveau sa urmeze."
Author: Curtis Sittenfeld

23. "Ma, quando andavo ad allenarmi, passavo per le strade correndo e nessuno poteva immaginare il mondo di parole che portavo con me. Correre è stare assolutamente soli. Lo so da sempre: nella solitudine mi è impossibile sfuggire a me stesso. Subito dopo i primi passi intorno a me si innalzano mura nere. inoffensivo, il mondo si allontana. Mentre corro, rimango fermo dentro di me, e aspetto. Sono finalmente alla mia mercé. All'inizio, avevo tredici anni e correvo perché avevo trovato il silenzio di una pace che ritenevo non appartenermi. Non sapevo ancora che era soltanto il riflesso della mia stessa pace. poi, quando la vita si complicò, era troppo tardi per riuscire a fermarsi. Correre faceva parte di me come il mio nome. Fu allora che imparai a correre contro le parole dentro di me, nello stesso modo in cui imparai a correre contro il vento."

34. "Ni za jednu životnu stazu ne postoji vodic, svaka je neispitana, neponovljiva, zato je u životu avantura pravilo, a ne izuzetak, jer je putovanje kroz neispitane predjele, koje niko poslije nas ne može ponoviti, sve se staze potiru, uvijek nanovo se stvara nova konfiguracija, uvijek se ukazuje drugi pejzaž, druga klima, za svakog posebno. Zato moram da budem svoj vlastiti vodic, prvi i posljednji putnik na putu kojim samo ja mogu proci. Lako cu pregaziti opasne bujice ne gazeci ni do clanaka, ili cu se udaviti u smiješnom potocicu, kao niko. Ali ne mogu da cekam, ne mogu da stojim, i sve cu vidjeti tek kad se desi."

44. "We see much more of this loneliness now. It's paradoxical that that where people are the most closely crowded in the big coastal cities in the East and West, the loneliness is greatest. Back where people are so spread out in Western Oregon and Idaho and Montana and the Dakotas you'd think the loneliness would have been greater, but we didn't see it so much. The explanation, I suppose, is that the physical distance between people has nothing to do with loneliness. It's the psychic distance, and in Montana and Idaho the physical distances are long but the psychic distances between people are small, and here, in primary America, it's reversed."
Author: Robert M. Pirsig

Poczatkowo stawialem silny opór, ale to nie sluzylo niczemu, kladl mnie i tak, triumfujac. W koncu wynalazlem metode, która powodowala jego rozczarowanie: calkowite rozluznienie. Kiedy sie zblizal, udawalem, ze Ja Sam ucieklem pozostawiajac jedynie trupa, szmate pozbawiona zycia, która mógl sobie przygniatac do woli. (...)Zastanawiam sie nad tym, jakie znaczenie metoda przemiany siebie samego w pozbawiona zycia szmate miala dla mnie w pózniejszym zyciu."
Author: Tomas Tranströmer
50. "Mentre piangeva, la luce si faceva finalmente intera nel suo cervello, una luce straordinaria, una luce meravigliosa e terribile al tempo stesso. La sua vita passata, il primo fallo, la lunga espiazione, il suo abbrutimento esteriore, il suo indurimento interiore, la sua scarcerazione rallegrata dai tanti piani di vendetta, ciò che gli era successo dal vescovo, l'ultima cosa che aveva fatto, quel furto di quaranta soldi a un ragazzo, delitto tanto più vile e tanto più mostruoso in quanto veniva dopo il perdono del vescovo, tutto ciò gli tornò dinanzi e gli apparve chiaramente, ma in una chiarezza mai conosciuta prima. Guardò la sua vita, e gli parve orribile; la sua anima, e gli parve spaventosa. Tuttavia sorgeva un'alba di dolcezza su quella vita e su quell'anima. Gli sembrò di vedere Satana alla luce del paradiso."
Author: Victor Hugo
