7. "[...] e io sfrego, con il guanto, con il sapone, ogni volta stupito dalla densità di quei piccoli corpi, come se maneggiassi energia allo stato puro, tutta l'energia di due esistenze a venire fantasticamente racchiusa in quella carne infantile così compatta, sotto quella pelle così delicata. Non saranno mai più così densi, né i lineamenti dei visi saranno mai più così netti, né così bianco il bianco dei loro occhi, né le orecchie così perfettamente disegnate, né così compatta la grana della pelle. L'uomo nasce nell'iperrealismo per dilatarsi pian piano fino a un puntinismo alquanto approssimativo per poi disperdersi in una polvere di astrattismo."

Now, the eggplant, as you know, is a member of the vegetable kingdom, and the rabbit is a very fast animal.Everybody bet lots of money on the eggplant, thinking that if a vegetable challenges a live animal with four legs to a race, then it must be that the vegetable knows something.People expected the eggplant to win the race by some clever trick of philosophy. The race was started, and there was a lot of cheering. The rabbit streaked out of sight.The eggplant just sat there at the starting line. Everybody knew that in some surprising way the eggplant would wind up winning the race.Nothing of the sort happened. Eventually, the rabbit crossed the finish line and the eggplant hadn't moved an inch.The spectators ate the eggplant.Moral: Never bet on an eggplant."
Author: Daniel Pinkwater

Jesus would not cast stones at people of races, sexual orientatons, or genders other than His own. Jesus would not condone the failing, viperous, scandalplagued hierarchy of some churches. Jesus would welcome everyone to his his table. He would love them, and he would find peace."
Author: David Levithan
10. "Manastirile sint ele oare atit de trebuincioase pentru temeliile unui stat? A facut Isus Cristos calugari si calugarite? [...] Ce nevoie are mirele sfint de atitea fecioare nebune? [...] e oare voia lui Dumnezeu sa vada traind in sihastrie omul pe care l-a menit sa traiasca laolalta cu semenii sai? Dumnezeu, care l-a facut atit de nestatornic, atit de usuratic, cum poate ingadui indrazneala legamintelor calugariei? [...] Si toate slujbele acestea lugubre, care se tin la luarea valului sau la marturie, cind un barbat sau o femeie sint daruiti vietii monahale si nenorocirii, curma oare functiunile animalice ale omului? Nu se trezesc ele, dimpotriva, in tacere, in silnicie si in trindavie, cu o putere necunoscuta celor ce traiesc in afara manastirilor?"
Author: Denis Diderot

14. "He who has perceived the material out of which the Promethean tragic writers prior to Euripides formed their heroes, and how remote from their purpose it was to bring the faithful mask of reality onto the stage, will also be aware of the utterly opposite tendency of Euripides. Through him the everyday man forced his way from the spectators' seats onto the stage; the mirror in which formerly only grand and bold traits were represented now showed the painful fidelity that conscientiously reproduces even the botched outlines of nature."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

I sat in the car and watched him, and I think that as he went he was pleased to have a spectator. I believe that the dramatic instinct within him was so strong that he was at this moment vividly aware of being leaving the stage, of disappearing, as if he had, with the eyes of his audience, seen himself go. Exit Emmanuelson. Should not the hills, the thorn-trees and the dusty road take pity and for a second put on the aspect of cardboard?"
Author: Isak Dinesen
19. "I think that's Justin Bieber.Standing in front of a line up of Lay's potato chips, Qhuinn looked overhead to the speaker inset into the ceiling tiles.

Maybe it's already here. Would explain Miley Cyrus."
Author: J.R. Ward

Your coup becomes a dictatorship. Your minimall becomes a lesion."

Author: Jonathan Swift
27. "L'isola remota è per sua natura una prigione circondata dalle monotone e insormontabili mura di un mare ostinatamente presente: lontana dalle rotte commerciali che, simili a cordoni ombelicali, uniscono le colonie di oltreoceano alla terra madre, l'isola è il luogo adatto per raccogliervi tutto ciò che è indesiderato, scartato e anomalo."
Author: Judith Schalansky
28. "To accept the environmentalist argument that the suffering of individual animals is inconsequential compared to the ozone layer, we must be willing to admit that the sufferings of minority groups, raped women, battered wives, abused children, people sitting on death row, and our loved ones are small potatoes beneath the hole in the sky. To worry about any of them is, in effect, to miniaturize the big picture to portraits of battered puppy dogs."
Author: Karen Davis
29. "Julien le aveva chiesto cosa l'aveva spinta verso la matematica e lei aveva risposto che la trovava rassicurante.«Io la definirei piuttosto come qualcosa che intimidisce, mi sembra più pertinente.»«È anche questo.»Pari aveva detto che trovava consolazione nella stabilità delle verità matematiche, nella mancanza di arbitrarietà e nell'assenza di ambiguità. Nel sapere che le risposte potevano essere elusive, ma che si potevano trovare. Erano lì che aspettavano sulla lavagna, qualche passaggio più sotto.«In altre parole, niente di simile alla vita» aveva commentato Julien. «Dove le domande o non hanno alcuna risposta o ne trovano una ingarbugliata.»"
Author: Khaled Hosseini
30. "And there it is! Bravo! I knew it was only a matter of time before Byron realized he had an audience. That man is simply incapable of keeping his shirt on when there are spectators.

Coincidentally, the next song was Come Let Us Adore Him and the imbecile actually launched into some interpretive dance."
Author: Kirt J. Boyd
31. "The search for liberty is simply part of the greater search for a world where respect for the rule of law and human rights is universal—a world free of dictators, terrorists, warmongers and fanatics, where men and women of all nationalities, races, traditions and creeds can coexist in the culture of freedom, where borders give way to bridges that people cross to reach their goals limited only by free will and respect for one another's rights. It is a search to which I've dedicated my writing, and so many have taken notice. But is it not a search to which we should all devote our very lives? The answer is clear when we see what is at stake"
Author: Mario Vargas Llosa
32. "I often took him as one of God's little jokes on me. When I was in desperate trouble, what saved me from a fate worse than death? To what do I owe my life? Was it love, affection, understanding, friends, wisdom? No no no. It was a man who looks like a poor copy of Walt Disney, drives pink Cadillacs, wears baby-blue alligator shoes, and appears to have the emotional depth of a slightly retarded potato."
Author: Mark Vonnegut
33. "Peter's mother was grand, in her way. She managed to complain almost ceaselessly without ever seeming trivial or kvetchy. She was regal rather than crotchety, she had been sent to live in this world from a better one, and she saved herself from mere mean-spiritedness by offering resignation in place of bile - by implying, every hour of her life, that although she objected to almost everybody and everythng she did so because she'd presided over some utopia, and so knew from experience how much better we all could do. She wanted more than anything to live under a benevolent dictator who was exactly like her without being her - if she actually ruled she would relinquish her right to object, and without her right to object who and what would she be?"
Author: Michael Cunningham

35. "Bullish or bearish are terms used by people who do not engage in practicing uncertainty, like the television commentators, or those who have no experience in handling risk. Alas, investors and businesses are not paid in probabilities; they are paid in dollars.

Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Author: Neil Leckman
37. "La gente si preoccupa perché i ragazzini giocano con le armi, perché gli adolescenti guardano film violenti; c'è la paura che nei giovani finisca per imporsi una specie di cultura della violenza. Nessuno si preoccupa dei ragazzini che ascoltano migliaia di canzoni - migliaia, letteralmente - che parlano di cuori spezzati, e abbandoni e dolore e sofferenza e perdita. Le persone più infelici che conosco, dico in senso amoroso, sono anche quelle pazze per la musica pop; e non sono sicuro che la musica pop sia stata la causa della loro infelicità, ma so per certo che sono persone che hanno ascoltato canzoni tristi più a lungo di quanto non siano durate le loro tristi storie."
Author: Nick Hornby

Author: Stephenie Meyer
45. "From the ancient Chinese commentators found in the Giles edition. Of these four, Giles' 1910 edition is the most scholarly and presents the reader an incredible amount of information concerning Sun Tzu's text, much more than any other translation. The Giles' edition of the ART OF WAR, as stated above, was a scholarly work. Dr. Giles was a leading sinologue at the time and an assistant in the Department"
Author: Sun Tzu
46. "Snow falls in the Moosewood Sandhills, on ghost burrows, deer woods, in the bone-home, last snow. What does it mean to become nothing? You've dug a cave in the earth, room of knowing, room of tears. It means to place yourself beneath irrational things and know they are without blame. The potato smell of the dark. You've given up."

50. "After analyzing our current crisis and studying well-establishedhistorical precedents, I must conclude that the global bankers haveonly three possible cards left to play.The first is admitting culpability and working to restore theAmerican economic engine to its free-market potential. History hastaught us that the ruling class rarely admits error and never concedespower.The second is to foment so much civil unrest and fear that thegeneral population will be clamoring for a global dictator who willprovide them food, shelter, and security in exchange for their individualfreedom and sovereignty. I see the emerging militancy of thelabor union movement playing right into this scenario.The final play is global conflict where they can try and controlthe outcome by means of funding both sides."
