5. "L'homme n'est qu'un roseau, le plus faible de la nature; mais c'est un roseau pensant. Il ne faut pas que l'univers entier s'arme pour l'éraser: un vapeur, un goutte d'eau suffit pout le tuer. Mais, quand l'univers l'écraserait, l'homme serait encore plus noble que ce qui le tue, pare qu'il sait qu'il meurt, et l'avantage que l'univers a sur lui, l'univers n'en sait rien."
Author: Blaise Pascal
6. "Pleasure eased the edges of Tiern-Cope's face, and with his mouth curved in a smile he resembled his brother more than ever. But the eyes gave him away. They were cold, a lifeless, icy blue. He grasped the woman's hips, and this woman who had Olivia's copper hair and even her features, cried out in a low, guttural moan of pleasure incapable of containment. "I am coming," he said. He opened his eyes again, looking at her, and she wanted to weep from the heartbreak.His hips came up, and he gasped and said, "My heart. My love. I'm coming."She slid away, down and away, and into the safety of Sebastian's embrace. His arms enfolded her, warm and tight. Hurry, she thought."
Author: Carolyn Jewel
7. "No veo obstáculos a que goce de una suerte feliz, sino en ese entrecejo, un entrecejo orgullosos, que parece querer decir: "yo puedo vivir sola, si el respeto de mi misma y las circunstancias me obligaran a ello. No necesito vender mi alma a un comprador de felicidad. Poseo un escondido e innato tesoro que me bastará para vivir si he de prescindir de todo placer ajeno a mí misma, en el caso de que hubiese de pagar por la dicha un precio demasiado caro". En la frente se lee: "mi razón es sólida y no permitirá a los sentimientos entregarse a sus desordenadas pasiones. Podrán las pasiones bramar y los deseos imaginar toda clase de cosas vanas; pero la sensatez será siempre la última palabra sobre el asunto y emitirá el voto decisivo en todas las terminaciones. Podrán producirse violentos huracanes, impetuosos temblores de tierra, ardorosas llamas, pero yo seguiré siempre los dictados de esa voz interior que interpreta los dictados de la conciencia"."
Author: Charlotte Brontë

11. "The TriflerDeath's the lover that I'd be taking;Wild and fickle and fierce is he.Small's his care if my heart be breaking-Gay young Death would have none of me.Hear them clack of my haste to greet him!No one other my mouth had kissed.I had dressed me in silk to meet him-False young Death would not hold the tryst.Slow's the blood that was quick and stormy,Smooth and cold is the bridal bed;I must wait till he whistles for me-Proud young Death would not turn his head.I must wait till my breast is wilted.I must wait till my back is bowed,I must rock in the corner, jilted-Death went galloping down the road.Gone's my heart with a trifling rover.Fine he was in the game he played-Kissed, and promised, and threw me over,And rode away with a prettier maid."
Author: Dorothy Parker

BeholdThe arch-enchanters wand! — itself is nothing! —But taking sorcery from the master-handTo paralyse the Cæsars, and to strikeThe loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —States can be saved without it!"
Author: Edward Bulwer Lytton
13. "I locate the ladies' room. Luckily, it's empty, no one to see the vacant-eyed girl, staring in the mirror. Staring at a stranger who doesn't care if she dies. Maybe she wants to die. Who would care if I died? My face is hollow-cheeked, spiced with sores--the places where I stab at bugs. Tiny bugs, almost invisible, but irritating. Usually they come out at night, when I'm lying there, begging for sleep. I've been meaning to tell the manager that the apartment needs to be sprayed. Sprayed. Steam cleaned. Deodorized. My hair looks odd too. It used to be darker. Shinier. Prettier. Can hair lose color when you're only eighteen? What if I go all the way gray? Will Trey still love me? Will anyone? That is, if I fool them all and don't die."
Author: Ellen Hopkins

Author: Georges Moustaki
16. "That is just what life is when it is beautiful and happy - a game! Naturally, one can also do all kinds of other things with it, make a duty of it, or a battleground, or a prison, but that does not make it any prettier."
Author: Hermann Hesse
17. "El que haya gustado los otros días, los malos, los de los ataques de gota o los del maligno dolor de cabeza clavado detrás de los globos de los ojos, y convirtiendo, por arte del diablo, toda actividad de la vista y del oído de una satisfacción en un tormento, o aquellos días de la agonía del espíritu, aquellos días terribles del vacío interior y de la desesperanza, en los cuales, en medio de la tierra destruida y esquilmada por las sociedades anónimas, nos salen al paso, con sus muecas como un vomitivo, la humanidad y la llamada cultura con su fementido brillo de feria, ordinario y de hojalata, concentrado todo y llevado al colmo de lo insoportable dentro del propio yo enfermo; el que haya gustado aquellos días infernales, ése ha de estar muy contento con estos días normales y mediocres como el de hoy [...]."

Author: Juan Benet
24. "Me asombra cuánto la gente le teme a lo que puede suceder en la oscuridad, pero no piensan dos veces en su seguridad durante el día; como si el sol ofreciera algún tipo de protección máxima contra el mal en el mundo.

Las cosas malas suceden todo el tiempo; no esperan hasta después de la cena."

30. "Religion says that your soul goes to heaven or possibly to a seven-tiered garden, or that your soul is reincarnated into a new body, or that you lie around in your coffin clothes until the Second Coming. And, of course, only one of these can be true. Which means that for millions of people, religion will turn out to have been a bum steer as regards the hereafter. (13)"

33. "Her world fragmented into dozens of sharp, cutting shards, shedding the salty blood and saltier tears that ringed the bitter cocktail of her despair. She was caterpillar and butterfly, both, caught in a cocoon of raw nerves and open sores; she was insanity, wrapped up in the thin, transient wrappings of a temporary lucidity; and she was afraid, because an innate desire lay in the bottom reaches of her psyche for the very poison that was killing her."
Author: Nenia Campbell

There's a whole world in here, a nicer, dirtier, more violent, more peaceful, more colorful, sleazier, more dangerous, more loving world than I live in; there is history, and geography, and poetry, and countless other things I should have studied at school, including music."
Author: Nick Hornby
36. "La decadencia del catolicismo europeo coincide con su apogeo hispanoamericano: se extiende en tierras nuevas en el momento en que ha dejado de ser creador. Ofrece una filosofía hecha y una fe petrificada, de modo que la originalidad de los nuevos creyentes no encuentra ocasión de manifestarse. Su adhesión es pasiva. El fervor y la profundidad de la religiosidad mexicana contrastan con la relativa pobreza de sus creaciones. No poseemos una gran poesía religiosa, como no tenemos una filosofía original, ni un solo místico o reformador de importancia. […] el catolicismo ofrece un refugio a los descendientes de aquellos que habían visto la destrucción de sus templos y manuscritos y la supresión de las formas superiores de su cultura pero, por razón misma de su decadencia europea, les niega toda posibilidad de expresar su singularidad."
Author: Octavio Paz

Author: Rebecca Solnit
39. "Wenn wir sehen, wie die Menschen altern und nach gewisser Zeit einer nach dem anderen sterben, Jahrhundert für Jahrhundert, dann können wir nur lachen über das Elixier, das die Verlängerung des Lebens auf über tausend Jahre verspricht; mit gleichem Recht ist der Lexikograph zu verspotten, der ohne das Beispiel einer Nation anführen zu können, die ihre Wörter und Ausdrücke vor Veränderlichkeit bewahrte, sich einbildet, sein Wörterbuch könne seine Sprache einbalsamieren, vor Verfälschung schützen und Verfall, und der meint, es stehe in seiner Macht, irdische Natur zu ändern oder die Welt mit einem Schlag von Verrücktheit, Eitelkeit und Affektiertheit zu befreien."
Author: Samuel Johnson
40. "C'est la nature, dis-tu, qui me donne tous ces biens. Ne vois-tu pas qu'en parlant ainsi tu ne fais que changer le nom de Dieu ? La nature est-elle autre chose que Dieu et la raison divine, incorporée au monde entier et à chacune de ses parties ?"
Author: Seneca

Ci innamoriamo di una persona e subito il nostro tempo accelera, l'abbiamo lasciata un momento fa e subito vorremmo rivederla, le ore lontano da lei sembrano lunghissime. Allora corriamo, scavalchiamo ostacoli e barriere, solo per raggiungerla un minuto prima. Michelle, lei ha fretta perchè è innamorata del suo futuro, del suo mestiere,del desiderio di tornare alle luci del teatro"

44. "The rate of progress is so rapid that what one learns at school or university is always a bit out of date.

The rest of the population has little idea of the advances that are being made or the excitement they are generating."
Author: Stephen Hawking

Author: Steven Yeun
46. "A lonely, quiet person has observations and experiences that are at once both more indistinct and more penetrating than those of one more gregarious; his thoughts are weightier, stranger, and never without a tinge of sadness. . . . Loneliness fosters that which is original, daringly and bewilderingly beautiful, poetic. But loneliness also fosters that which is perverse, incongruous, absurd, forbidden."
Author: Thomas Mann
