Le visage soucieux et l'allure renfrognée du Fassi, s"expliqueraient par le climat rugueux qu'ils endurent avec cet hiver givré de glace et de ce vent mordant qui souffle du nord. Je me demande pourtant si le climat a une telle importance pour déterminer la place de le séduction dans une culture donnée. A fès, il y a un mot pour désigner celui _ ou celle _ qui sourit sans raison. On dit qu'il "Farnass". C'est ce qu'on dit de quelqu'un qui a la lèvre supérieure qui fuit quelque peu et découvre les dents de devant. Petite, je m'entendais dire sans cesse: " Seul l'âne farnass". Serrer les lèvres 'avait donc rien à voir avec le froid! Cette attitude traduisait plutôt un certain un certain recroquevillement de l'être, une certaine absence de générosité au niveau du sentiment. A Fès, même un sourire doit être calculé, doit avoir un prix, une signification bien précise dans un réseau de comportements déterminés...."

But no one over thirty could understand this peculiarly weighted and condensed time, from late teens to early twenties, a stretch of life that needed a name, from school leaver to salaried professional, with a university and affairs and death and choices in between.

I sit and I stare and I breathe. I sit and I stare. I breathe."

15. "On the proper role of coincidence in fiction—more exactly in storymaking, ... Aristotle declares in effect that since real life now and then includes unlikely coincidences both idle and consequential ... a storymaker may legitimately deploy such a possible-though-improbable happenstance to begin the tale or to give its plot-screws an early turn. Thereafter, however, the Plausible (even when strictly impossible) is ever to be preferred to the Possible-but-Unlikely; and in the resolution of a plot, most particularly, coincidence ought to be eschewed. Fate in fiction, decrees the great A, ought to flow from character and situation, not from chance; let no god on wires drop down at climax-time to rescue the storymaker from whatever dramaturgical corner his want of experience, talent, or judgment has painted him into."
Author: John Barth
16. "It is of first importance that the military be subordinate to civilian government"
Author: John Rawls
17. "The usual fiction – that the war would involve precision targeting and the careful avoidance of civilian deaths – was stated by Tony Blair at the beginning of the war. After similar bombing campaigns against Yugoslavia and Iraq, Blair was by now acting as virtual White House spokesperson, providing the pretence of an 'international coalition' in what was clearly a US war. This role was more important than Britain's military contribution, which in the early days of the bombing campaign was token and probably of no military value. The British army did later prove useful, however, when it was..."

18. "Pedaling down the maple lined drive, quicksilver temper ebbed, her resilient spirits were lifted with the beauty of the day. The valley was stirring with life. Small clusters of fragile violets and red clover dotted the rolling meadows. Lines of fresh laundry waved in the early breeze. The boundary of mountains was tooped by a winter's coat, not yet the soft, lush green it would be in a month's time, but patched with stark black trees and the intermittent color of pines. Clouds scudded thin and white across the sky, chased by the teasing wind which whispered of spring and fresh blossoms."
Author: Nora Roberts

Author: Richard Dawkins
23. "Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."
Author: Robert Macfarlane
24. "Tiffany got up early and lit the fires. When her mother came down, she was scrubbing the kitchen floor, very hard."Er…aren't you supposed to do that sort of thing by magic, dear?" said her mother, who'd never really got the hang of what witchcraft was all about."No, Mum, I'm supposed not to," said Tiffany, still scrubbing."But can't you just wave your hand and make all the dirt fly away, then?""The trouble is getting the magic to understand what dirt is," said Tiffany, scrubbing hard at a stain. "I heard of a witch over in Escrow who got it wrong and ended up losing the entire floor and her sandals and nearly a toe."Mrs. Aching backed away. "I thought you just had to wave your hands about," she mumbled nervously."That works," said Tiffany, "but only if you wave them about on the floor with a scrubbing brush."
Author: Terry Pratchett
25. "At one point, early on, some public figures even asked whether it 'made sense' to rebuild New Orleans. Would you let your own mother die because it didn't make financial sense to spend the money to treat her, or because you were too busy to spend the time to heal her sick spirit?"
Author: Tom Piazza
26. "But whenever my consciousness was quickened, all those early friends were quickened within it, and in some strange way they accompanied me through all my new experiences. They were so much alive in me that I scarcely stopped to wonder whether they were alive anywhere else. Or how."
Author: Willa Cather
27. "The early bird catches the worm."
Author: William Camden
28. "Time is what matters. As time goes by, you and I will be carried inexorably into the mainstream of our period, even though we're unaware of what it is. And later, when they say that young men in the early Taisho era thought, dressed, talked, in such and such a way, they'll be talking about you and me. We'll all be lumped together…. In a few decades, people will see you and the people you despise as one and the same, a single entity."
Author: Yukio Mishima
