6. "A history of nightlife!--what an interesting concept. A history of a people, told not through their daily travails and successive political upheavals, but via the changes in their nightly celebrations and unwindings. History is, in this telling, accompanied by a bottle of Malbec, some fine Argentine steak, tango music, dancing, and gossip. It unfolds through and alongside illicit activities that take place in the multitude of discos, dance parlors, and clubs. Its direction, the way people live, is determined on half-lit streets, in bars, and in smoky late-night restaurants. This history is inscribed in songs, on menus, via half-remembered conversations, love affairs, drunken fights, and years of drug abuse."
Author: David Byrne

10. "Musu laisve paciais ja itvirtinanciais veiksmais sukuria tolydžio stiprejancius iprocius, kurie ja pasmaugia, jeigu jos neatnaujina nuolatines pastangos: jos tyko automatizmas. Pati gyviausia mintis sustabareja ja išreiškiancioje formuluoteje. Žodis atsigrežia prieš ideja. Raide nužudo dvasia. Ir netgi liepsningiausias musu entuziazmas, pasireiškiantis išoriniu veiksmu, kartais taip naturaliai pavirsta šaltu savanaudišku išskaiciavimu arba išpuikimu, vienas taip lengvai igija kito forma, jog mes galetume juos supainioti viena su kitu, galetume abejoti savo paciu nuoširdumu, neigti geruma ir meile, jei nežinotume, kad mires dar kuri laika išsaugo gyvojo bruožus."
Author: Henri Bergson
11. "In the talcum on the floor around him he could see the imprints of his mother's feet. She had moved from side to side, propelled by an over-eager partner, perhaps one of the Japanese officers to whom she was teaching to tango.

Author: J.G. Ballard

14. "His kiss was like no other! His kiss was enchanted and fairy-tale like. He applied pressure, but just enough to feel his tenderness and warmth. I could feel his heart beating wildly as he pressed his chest against my chest all the while his loving lips brushed up against mine with a care-filled affection. His tongue lightly licked the outer edges of my mouth, and then searched for my tongue. The pursuit allowed a marriage of both tongues to meet - inspiring a mingling tango of hot and heavy French kissing to manifest profusely. We kissed like two hot and horny teenagers, our mouths moving and craving each others lips, in animalistic desires!"
Author: Keira D. Skye
15. "E világ…az eroseké, barátom! Létezésünk szertartása azon alapszik, hogy az erosek a gyengéken híznak. Így van, tudomásul kell vennünk. Nincs rendben, de még ez a legjobb megoldás. Fogadjuk el, mint a természet törvényét mirajtunk. A nyulak is elfogadják kiosztott szerepüket ebben a szertartásban, és erosebbnek ismerik el a farkast. Védekezésül viszont a nyúl ijedos és ravasz, és likat váj a földbe, abba bújik, ha a farkas arra csatangol. Így éli túl a veszélyt. Tudja, mi telik tole. Párharcra nem hívja ki a farkast."
Author: Ken Kesey

Author: Kurt Vonnegut
20. "Kizzy wanted to be a woman who would dive off the prow of a sailboat into the sea, who would fall back in a tangle of sheets, laughing, and who could dance a tango, lazily stroke a leopard with her bare foot, freeze an enemy's blood with her eyes, make promises she couldn't possibly keep, and then shift the world to keep them. She wanted to write memoirs and autograph them at a tiny bookshop in Rome, with a line of admirers snaking down a pink-lit alley. She wanted to make love on a balcony, ruin someone, trade in esoteric knowledge, watch strangers as coolly as a cat. She wanted to be inscrutable, have a drink named after her, a love song written for her, and a handsome adventurer's small airplane, champagne-christened Kizzy, which would vanish one day in a windstorm in Arabia so that she would have to mount a rescue operation involving camels, and wear an indigo veil against the stinging sand, just like the nomads.Kizzy wanted."
Author: Laini Taylor

He has drunk himself stupid in the fairy-tale blood brothels of old Dubrovnik, lounged in red-smoke dens in Laos, enjoyed the New York blackout of 1977, and more recently, feasted on Vegas showgirls in the Dean Martin suite at the Bellagio. He has watched Hindu abstainers wash away their sins in the Ganges, danced a midnight tango on a boulevard in Buenos Aires, and bitten into a faux geisha under the shade of a shogun pavilion in Kyoto."
Author: Matt Haig
24. "Sensual images of you are forever tangoing through my brain--maybe I can begin solidify them. At least they would be mine! - Matthew Sedon"
Author: Nick Bantock

27. "He was like some prophet of old, scourging the sins of the people. He leaped about in a frenzy of inspiration till I feared he would do himself an injury. Sometimes he expressed himself in a somewhat odd manner, but every word carried conviction. He showed me New York in its true colours. He showed me the vanity and wickedness of sitting in gilded haunts of vice, eating lobster when decent people should be in bed.'He said that the tango and the fox-trot were devices of the devil to drag people down into the Bottomless Pit. He said that there was more sin in ten minutes with a negro banjo orchestra than in all the ancient revels of Nineveh and Babylon. And when he stood on one leg and pointed right at where I was sitting and shouted "This means you!" I could have sunk through the floor."
Author: P.G. Wodehouse

I do NOT need the kiddie ball.""The way you bowl, I think you might."He grabbed her in an exaggerated formal dance pose and whirled her around, backpack and all, which didn't make her any more graceful. "Ballroom dancing?""Are you INSANE?""Hey, girls who tango are hot.""You think I'm not hot because I don't tango?"He dropped the act. Shane was a smart boy. "I think you are too hot for ballroom or bowling. So you tell me. What do you want to do? And don't say study."
Author: Rachel Caine

38. "I am the twentieth century. I am the ragtime and the tango; sans-serif, clean geometry. I am the virgin's-hair whip and the cunningly detailed shackles of decadent passion. I am every lonely railway station in every capital of Europe. I am the Street, the fanciless buildings of government. the cafe-dansant, the clockwork figure, the jazz saxophone, the tourist-lady's hairpiece, the fairy's rubber breasts, the travelling clock which always tells the wrong time and chimes in different keys. I am the dead palm tree, the Negro's dancing pumps, the dried fountain after tourist season. I am all the appurtenances of night."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
39. "Tango Down"
Author: Tom Clancy
40. "The tango is really a combination of many cultures, though it eventually became the national music of Argentina."
Author: Yo Yo Ma
