1. "If a statement is untrue, it is not the more respectable because it has been said in Latin."
Author: A.A. Milne
2. "Among the famous sayings of the Church fathers none is better know than Augustine's ‘Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee.' The great saint states here in few words the origin and interior history of the human race. God made us for Himself: that is the only explanation that satisfies the heart of a thinking man, whatever his wild reason may say. Should faulty education and perverse reasoning lead a man to conclude otherwise, there is little that any Christian can do for him. For such a man I have no message. My appeal is addressed to those who have been previously taught in secret by the wisdom of God; I speak to thirsty hearts whose longings have been wakened by the touch of God within them, and such as they need no reasoned proof. Their restless hearts furnish all the proof they need."
Author: A.W. Tozer
3. "I believe, and I may be wrong, the system sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Prison is supposed to rehabilitate, but they don't do that in a lot of cases."
Author: Amaury Nolasco
4. "...you could just tell that if Rosie couldn't romance her way to the top of the Empire State Building, she was prepared to climb it like King Kong."
Author: Amor Towles
5. "I think fashion is a lot of fun. I love clothes. More than fashion or brand labels, I love design. I love the thought that people put into clothes. I love when clothes make cultural statements and I think personal style is really cool. I also freely recognize that fashion should be a hobby."
Author: Anne Hathaway
6. "To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients' best interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations."
Author: Anthony Hitt
7. "This is why a tainted society has invented psychiatry to defend itself against the investigations of certain superior intellects whose faculties of divination would be troublesome.No, van Gogh was not mad, but his paintings were bursts of Greek fire, atomic bombs, whose angle of vision would have been capable of seriously upsetting the spectral conformity of thebourgeoisie.In comparison with the lucidity of van Gogh, psychiatry is no better than a den of apes who are themselves obsessed and persecuted and who possess nothing to mitigate the most appalling states of anguish and human suffocation but a ridiculous terminology. To a man, this whole gang of pected scoundrels and patented quacks are all erotomaniacs."
Author: Antonin Artaud
8. "But in the meantime, as a temporary measure, I hold what I call the doctrine of the jig-saw puzzle. That is: this remarkable occurrence, and that, and the other may be, and usually are, of no significance. Coincidence and chance and unsearchable causes will now and again make clouds that are undeniable fiery dragons, and potatoes that resemble eminent statesmen exactly and minutely in every feature, and rocks that are like eagles and lions. All this is nothing; it is when you get your set of odd shapes and find that they fit into one another, and at last that they are but parts of a large design; it is then that research grows interesting and indeed amazing, it is then that one queer form confirms the other, that the whole plan displayed justifies, corroborates, explains each separate piece."
Author: Arthur Machen
9. "While Eeyore frets ... ... and Piglet hesitates... and Rabbit calculates ... and Owl pontificates...Pooh just is."
Author: Benjamin Hoff
10. "Philosophy was right to vaunt liberty; it is the foremost desire of all creatures. But philosophy forgot that in civilized societies liberty is illusory if the common people lack wealth. When the wage-earning classes are poor, their independence is as fragile as a house without foundations. The free man who lacks wealth immediately sinks back under the yoke of the rich. The newly freed slave takes fright at the need of providing for his own subsistence and hastens to sell himself back into slavery in order to escape this new anxiety that hangs over him like Damocles' sword. In thoughtlessly giving him liberty without wealth, you merely replace his physical torment with a mental torment. He finds life burdensome in his new state... Thus when you give liberty to the people, it must be bolstered by two supports which are the guarantee of comfort and industrial attraction..."
Author: Charles Fourier
11. "Before being taken to the Morgue, the body is left for a while on the embankment so they can try reviving it. A massive crowd gathers round the body. Those unable to see because they are at the back jostle those in front as best they can. Each thinks: "I wouldn't be drowning myself, not I." They pity the young suicide, admire him, but do not imitate him. He, however, found it quite natural to give himself death, deeming nothing on earth able to content him, and aspiring higher."
Author: Comte De Lautréamont
12. "Tate practically raised you from what I hear. You love him, don't you?"Her face closed up. "For all the good it will ever do me, yes," she said softly."He won't have the excuse of pure Lakota blood much longer," he advised."I'm not holding out for miracles anymore," she vowed. "I'm going to stop wanting what I can never have. From now on, I'll take what I can get from life and be satisfied with it. Tate will have to find his own way.""That's sour grapes," he observed."You bet it is. What do you want me to do to help?""It's dangerous," he pointed out, hesitating as he considered her youth. "I don't know…""I'm a card-carrying archeologist," she reminded him. "Haven't you ever watched an Indiana Jones movies? We're all like that," she told him with a wicked grin. "Mild-mannered on the outside and veritable world-tamers inside. I can get a whip and a fedora, too, if you like," she added."
Author: Diana Palmer
13. "Cei care cu adevarat il simt aceia sau il tolereaza cu orgoliu sau il prezinta ca pe o calamitate. Nimeni nu este insa incantat in fondul fiintei lui de aceasta achizitie catastrofala pentru viata care este spiritul."
Author: Emil Cioran
14. "Religio", as we know, harks back to a word (re-ligio) meaning "bond" and that is precisely what the anarch rejects. He does not go in for Moses with the Ten Commandments or, indeed, for any prophets. Nor does he wish to hear anything concerning gods or rumors about them, except as a historian - or unless they appear to him. That is when the conflicts begin.So, if I state, "in order to pray," I am following an innate instinct that is no weaker than the sexual drive - in fact, even stronger. The two are alike insofar as foul things can happen when they are suppressed."
Author: Ernst Jünger
15. "- Secondo te le stelle sanno di pan di zucchero o di sale?- Non lo so, non le ho mai assaggiate.- Io sì, sono rimasta molte notti sul balcone della casa dei bambini chiusi. Le stelle in estate perdono briciole che arrivano in bocca.- E come sono?- Salate, a gusto di mandorla amara.- Le preferivo dolci.- Ma no, guasterebbero la terra per quante ne arrivano. Certe notti c'è tempesta di stelle sbriciolate. La terra è seminata da loro, riceve senza poter restituire. Allora dal basso si alzano le preghiere a sdebitarsi di alberi e di bestie che ringraziano."
Author: Erri De Luca
16. "Children are not entirely human. There is a lot of the animal left in them.about the girl who needed her foot amputated. p170"
Author: Frank Huyler
17. "Happiness is not fame or riches or heroic virtues, but a state that will inspire posterity to think in reflecting upon our life, that it was the life they would wish to live."
Author: Herodotus
18. "It is changing the face of terrorism. It is basically bringing it to the United States, to our great citizens. We know the terrorists are barbaric and murderers that attack innocent civilians, as they did in this case."
Author: Hugh Shelton
19. "Like other important immigrant communities, the Jewish experience in the United States represents the ideal of freedom and the promise and opportunity of America."
Author: Jan Schakowsky
20. "For the Buddha of the Pali Canon, the goal is liberation: the cessation of suffering, the end of the endless hamster-wheel of dependent origination, of mental formations leading to desire leading to clinging leading to suffering and so on. Nibbana, or nirvana, was not originally conceived as some magical heavenly world, or even a permanent altered state of consciousness. It is usually described, in the early texts, negatively: as a candle being snuffed out."
Author: Jay Michaelson
21. "The people from 'The State' are close friends, but also some of the most incredibly funny people I know."
Author: Joe Lo Truglio
22. "The master-economist must possess a rare combination of gifts .... He must be mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher -- in some degree. He must understand symbols and speak in words. He must contemplate the particular, in terms of the general, and touch abstract and concrete in the same flight of thought. He must study the present in the light of the past for the purposes of the future. No part of man's nature or his institutions must be entirely outside his regard. He must be purposeful and disinterested in a simultaneous mood, as aloof and incorruptible as an artist, yet sometimes as near to earth as a politician."
Author: John Maynard Keynes
23. "We can guess that the unacceptable conduct of the soldiers at Abu Ghraib resulted in part from the dangerous state of affairs on the ground in a theater of war."
Author: John Yoo
24. "Life everlasting in a state of happiness is the greatest desire of all men."
Author: Joseph Franklin Rutherford
25. "You haven't stopped smiling since you came in.""You want me to yell?""No, no," Buddy hastily assured him. "You just keep right on smiling." He picked delicately at the remaining pie. "You sure did sleep late today."Tate grinned at him. "Yep.""Didn't go fishing, either.""Nope.""Sure was a lot of tromping around going on upstairs a few minutes ago. What were you doing?""Just moving a few things." Tate took a drink of coffee."What things?"He was beginning to wish he'd strangled Buddy at birth. "My things.""Were you moving them somewhere in particular, or just dragging them up and down the hall for the exercise?"Tate ground his teeth together. "I was moving them to Abby's room.""Oh." Buddy gave a half grin. "Can I have some money?""No." Tate glared at him."Well, it was worth a shot. I should have asked while you were still smiling."
Author: Katherine Allred

Author: Kwame Nkrumah

Author: Lakhdar Brahimi

30. "The prince enjoyed unusually good health even among princes; both by gymnastic exercises and by taking good care of his body he had brought himself to such a state of physical fitness that in spite of the excesses he indulged in when enjoying himself, he looked as fresh as a big shiny green Dutch cucumber."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
31. "It seemed that a sudden sense of kinship had temporarily caused her to forget her shyness. "It m-makes no sense that you're a wallflower," she told Annabelle. "You're the most beautiful girl here—men should be f-falling all over themselves to dance with you." Annabelle lifted her shoulder in a graceful half shrug. "No one wants to marry a girl without a dowry." It was only in the fantasy realm of novels that dukes could marry poor girls. In reality, dukes and viscounts and the like were burdened with the massive financial responsibility of maintaining large estates and extended families, and helping the tenantry. A wealthy peer needed to marry into money just as badly as a poor one did."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
32. "When you are sitting on a three-legged stool and you've kicked out all three legs, but you're still sitting upright, must you assume that you're so good, you levitate? Or must you assume that you were sitting on the ground all along?"
Author: Lydia Netzer

Author: Manu Joseph
34. "It never takes longer than a few minutes, when they get together, for everyone to revert to the state of nature, like a party marooned by a shipwreck. That's what a family is. Also the storm at sea, the ship, and the unknown shore. And the hats and the whiskey stills that you make out of bamboo and coconuts. And the fire that you light to keep away the beasts."
Author: Michael Chabon
35. "Punk is not really a style of music. It was more like a state of mind."
Author: Mike Watt

Author: Orrin Woodward
37. "Physically he was tired and his body relaxed throughout its entire length; his mind was in much the same state, floating free, detached, as though he had taken his old favourite, the tincture of laudanum. He felt no particular anxiety. The attempt must either succeed or fail: he hoped with all his heart for success, but 'all his heart' did not amount to a great deal now that some essential part of its core seemed to have died. Yet on the other hand he felt more able to command success in that it meant no less to him - to command it with a strength that arose not from a fundamental indifference to his own fate but from something resembling it that he could not define; it had a resemblance to despair, but a despair long past, with the horror taken out of it."
Author: Patrick O'Brian
38. "Quasi tutti pensano che le cose non siano vere finché non sono state dette, che sia la comunicazione, non il pensiero a dargli legittimità. È per questo che la gente vuole sempre che gli si dica «Ti amo, ti voglio bene». Per me è il contrario: i pensieri sono più veri quando vengono pensati, esprimerli li distorce o li diluisce, la cosa migliore è che restino nell'hangar buio della mente, nel suo clima controllato, perché l'aria e la luce possono alterarli come una pellicola esposta accidentalmente."
Author: Peter Cameron
39. "The third planet is incapable of supporting life," stated the husband patiently. "Our scientists have said there's far too much oxygen in their atmosphere."
Author: Ray Bradbury
40. "And when demigods use cell phones, the signals agitate every monster within a hundred miles. It's like sending up a flare: Here I am! Please rearrange my face!"
Author: Rick Riordan
41. "Strike had never wanted children; it was one of the things on which he and Charlotte had always agreed, and it had been one of the reasons other relationships over the years had foundered. Lucy deplored his attitude, and the reasons he gave for it; she was always miffed when he stated life aims that differed from hers, as though he were attacking her decisions and choices."
Author: Robert Galbraith
42. "He has not yet become an elder statesman, though his foreign policy credentials are considerable, but he is certainly our ancient mariner, forever tugging at our sleeve to let him tell his tale of what really happened."
Author: Ronald Steel
43. "I actually took a step back as each of their eyes met mine. Evan's was sympathetic; that scared me. Matt's was appraising; that concerned me. Griffins's was irritated; that...was really nothing new."
Author: S.C. Stephens
44. "Pleasure, in itself harmless, may become mischievous, by endearing to us a state which we know to be transient and probatory, and withdrawing our thoughts from that of which every hour brings us nearer to the beginning, and of which no length of time will bring us to the end. Mortification is not virtuous in itself, nor has any other use, but that it disengages us from the allurements of sense. In the state of future perfection, to which we all aspire, there will be pleasure without danger, and security without restraint."
Author: Samuel Johnson
45. "All cat stories start with this statement: "My mother, who was the first cat, told me this..."
Author: Shirley Jackson
46. "Filozofia lui Schopenhauer remarca ira?ionalitatea voin?ei, ce trebuie anihilata, pentru a ajunge la lini?te ?i satisfac?ie. La fel ca filozofia de tinere?e a lui Nietzsche sau ca eseistica lui Cioran, ea pote fi interpretata ca o pledoarie pentru moarte: «Via?a este o sarcina ce trebuie îndeplinita. Este un lucru bun sa zicem defunctus est: înseamna ca omul ?i-a îndeplinit sarcina. [...] De fapt, convingerea ca lumea ?i omul sunt lucruri care mai bine nu existau, sunt constatari care ne trezesc indulgen?a fa?a de ceilal?i.»"
Author: Ştefan Bolea
47. "Let's say there are 500 sons and daughters like you in each state. Then we could control the government."
Author: Sun Myung Moon
48. "I speak on due consideration because Britain, France, and Mexico, have abolished slavery, and all other European states are preparing to abolish it as speedily as they can."
Author: William H. Seward
49. "I hereby state, and mean all that I say, that I never have been and never will be a candidate for President; that if nominated by either party, I should peremptorily decline; and even if unanimously elected I should decline to serve."
Author: William T. Sherman
50. "Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body; it calls attention to the development of an unhealthy state of things. If it is heeded in time, danger may be averted; if it is suppressed, a fatal distemper may develop."[New Statesman interview, 7 January 1939]"
Author: Winston Churchill
