2. "Well, I spent six or seven years after high school trying to work myself up. Shipping clerk, salesman, business of one kind or another. And it's a measly manner of existence. To get on that subway on the hot mornings in summer. To devote your whole life to keeping stock, or making phone calls, or selling or buying. To suffer fifty weeks of the year for the sake of a two-week vacation, when all you really desire is to be outdoors, with your shirt off. And always to have to get ahead of the next fella. And still — that's how you build a future."
Author: Arthur Miller
3. "Perhaps if zoologists would contemplate the wide variations presented by many plants of indubitably one and the same species, and the still wider diversities of long cultivated races from an original stock, they would find more than one instructive parallel to the case of the longest domesticated of all species, man."
Author: Asa Gray

6. "The phytochemicals, antioxidants, and fiber- all of the healthful components of plant foods- originate in plants, not animals. If they are present, it is because the animal ate plants. And why should we go through an animal to get the benefits of the plants themselves? To consume unnecessary, unseemly, and unhealthy substances, such as saturated fat, animal protein, lactose, and dietary cholesterol, is to negate the benefits of the fiber, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are prevalent and inherent in plants."
Author: Colleen Patrick Goudreau
7. "Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They've already passed their test in life. They're aristocrats."
Author: Diane Arbus
8. "Le damos tanta importancia a nuestra propia vida que tendemos a creer que su historia comienza con nuestro nacimiento. Primero no había nada, entonces nací yo... Pero no es así. Las vidas humanas no son pedazos de cuerda que podemos separar del nudo que forman con otros pedazos de cuerda para enderezarnos. Las familias son tejidos. Resulta imposible tocar una parte sin hacer vibrar el resto. Resulta imposible comprender una parte sin poseer una visión del conjunto. - Vida Winter"
Author: Diane Setterfield
9. "Meritocracy is a good thing. Whenever possibly, people should be judged based on their work and results, not superficial qualities."
Author: Eric Ries
10. "I had seen nothing sacred, and the things that were glorious had no glory and the sacrifices were like the stockyards at Chicago if nothing was done with the meat except to bury it."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
11. "My unlucky star had destined me to be born when there was much talk about morality and, at the same time, more murders than in any other period. There is, undoubtedly, some connection between these phenomena. I sometime ask myself whether the connection was a priori, since these babblers are cannibals from the start - or a connection a posteriori, since they inflate themselves with their moralizing to a height which becomes dangerous for others.However that may be, I was always happy to meet a person who owed his touch of common sense and good manners to his parents and who didn't need big principles. I do not claim more for myself, and I am a man who for an entire lifetime has been moralized at to the right and the left - by teachers and superiors, by policemen and journalists, by Jews and Gentiles, by inhabitants of the Alps, of islands, and the plains, by cut-throats and aristocrats - all of whom looked as if butter wouldn't melt in their mouths."
Author: Ernst Jünger
12. "Mantenere, il mio verbo preferito, era successo. Come fa a saperlo? Pensai e mi risposi: lo sa e basta. Non avevo toccato niente di così liscio fino allora. Ora so neanche fino a oggi. Glielo dissi, che il suo palmo di mano era meglio del cavo di conchiglia, mentre risalivamo a riva, staccati. "Lo sai che hai detto una frase d'amore?" disse avviandosi verso l'ombrellone.Una frase d'amore? Neanche so cos'è, che le è venuto in mente? Ne sa più di me per via degli animali, ma si è sbagliata. Ho detto una frase di stupore. Il tatto è l'ultimo dei sensi ai quali sto attento. Eppure è il più diffuso, non sta in un organo solo come gli altri quattro, ma sparso in tutto il corpo. Mi guardai la mano, piccola e tozza e pure un poco ruvida. Chissà cosa avrà sentito nella sua. Non potevo chiedere, poteva essere per sbaglio una domanda d'amore."
Author: Erri De Luca
13. "Las e acela care se teme si fuge, acela însa care se teme, dar nu fuge, nu este tocmai un las."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
14. "You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists"
Author: G.K. Chesterton
15. "You will also allow me to thank the Academy for inviting me to lecture in Stockholm, for its hospitality, and for the opportunity afforded me for admiring the charm of your people and the beauty of your country."
Author: Guglielmo Marconi

He had put it to them that they would be unable to avoid paying, because the Athenians had the support of two powerful deities, one called Persuasion and the other Compulsion.The Andrians had replied that Athens was lucky to have two such useful gods, who were obviously responsible for her wealth and greatness; unfortunately, they themselves, in their small & inadequate land, had two utterly useless deities, who refused to leave the island and insisted on staying; and their names were Poverty and Inability."
Author: Herodotus

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
19. "Wojna. Toczy sie na swiecie nieprzerwanie. Tam, gdzie wybucha, pojawia sie takze nadzieja"
Author: Joan Wester Anderson
20. "Apoi, pe neasteptate, stiu ce are de facut. Se indrepta spre teancul de discuri si alese "Arta fugii". "Daca geniul lui nu-mi da curaj, gandi el, trebuie sa renunt imediat." Ramase pe scaun, nemiscat, ascultand cum Bach construia o lume, o popula, o organiza si, pana la urma, lupta impotriva ei si era distrus. Cand muzica se opri, intocmai cum se opreste omul la sosirea mortii, in mijlocul unei fraze, Doc isi regasise curajul. "Bach s-a luptat cu disperare, isi zise el, n-a fost invins. Daca ar mai fi trait, ar fi continuat sa lupte cu imposibilul. [....] "Ce inteleg prin a castiga?" Stiu. Pentru a castiga e suficient sa nu fii tu insuti invins." [....] Simti ca n-are de ce sa se mai teama. "La revedere, le spuse serpilor, urati-mi noroc"."
Author: John Steinbeck

22. "Cand o sa cresti, o sa vrei sa fii fericit. Deocamdata nu te gandesti la asa ceva si tocmai de-asta esti. Cand te vei gandi, cand vei vrea sa fii fericit, nu vei mai fi. Niciodata! Poate niciodata... M-ai auzit? Niciodata. Cu cat mai mare va fi dorinta ta de a fi fericit, cu atat mai nefericit o sa fii. Fericirea nu e ceva care se cucereste. Sa nu crezi. Fericirea ori e, ori nu e."
Author: José Saramago
23. "Thus the aristocracy took their revenge by singing lampoons on their new master, and whispering in his ears sinister prophecies of coming catastrophe.In this way arose feudal Socialism; half lamentation, half lampoon; half echo of the past, half menace of the future, at times by its bitter, witty and incisive criticism, striking the bourgeoisie to the very heart's core, but always ludicrous in its effects, through total incapacity to comprehend the march of modern history."
Author: Karl Marx
24. "No importa a donde vayas o con que te distraes, la realidad termina tocando a tu puerta en algún momento."
Author: Kody Keplinger

She hiked her skirt and, humming jauntily, rolled down her stockings, exposing her legs. It had the desired effect on the Blue Noses, who moved down the platform, clucking about the "disgrace of the young." She would not miss this place."
Author: Libba Bray

Our mutual secretary was a Miss Reingold. Mary Jane Reingold, old (thirty-six), undynamic (she worked for us), unintelligent (she prefers Ecstein to me), personable (everyone felt sorry for her), unattractive (tall, skinny, glasses, no one loved her), anal (obsessively neat), oral (always eating), genital (trying hard), and non-Jewish (finds use of two Yiddish slang words very intellectual). Miss Reingold greeted me efficiently."
Author: Luke Rhinehart
29. "No lejos de ese punto está el jardín reservado en que crecen como flores desconocidas los sopores, tan diferentes entre sí –sopor del estramonio, del cáñamo índico, de los múltiples extractos del éter, sopor de la belladona, del opio, de la valeriana, flores que permanecen cerradas hasta el día en que el desconocido predestinado venga a tocarlas, a hacerlas abrirse y exhalar durante largas horas el aroma de sus sueños particulares, en un ser maravillado y sorprendido."
Author: Marcel Proust
30. "I had been to school most all the time, and could spell, and read, and write just a little, and could say the multiplication table up to six times seven is thirty-five, and I don't reckon I could ever get any further than that if I was to live forever. I don't take no stock in mathematics, anyway."
Author: Mark Twain

34. "Um príncipe deve ter o extremo cuidado de nunca deixar que saia de sua boca nada que não esteja repleto das cinco qualidades supracitadas [piedade, fé, integridade, humanidade e religião]; e que ele pareça, ao ser visto e ouvido, todo piedade, todo fé, todo integridade, todo humanidade, todo religião - de resto, parecer possuir esta última qualidade é o que há de mais necessário. Os homens em geral julgam mais com os olhos que com as mãos; porque todos são capazes de ver, mas poucos, de sentir; todos veem aquilo que você parece, poucos tocam aquilo que você é; e estes poucos não ousam opor-se à opinião de muitos, que contam com a majestade do Estado para defendê-los; enfim, nas ações de todos os homens, especialmente nas dos príncipes, quando não há juiz a quem apelar, o que vale é o resultado final."
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli

Author: Omar EL KADMIRI
38. "When stocks are attractive, you buy them. Sure, they can go lower. I've bought stocks at $12 that went to $2, but then they later went to $30. You just don't know when you can find the bottom."
Author: Peter Lynch
39. "You know that song, 'Woodstock.' It says 'We are stardust.' And we are. We come from stardust. Everything on earth is just ashes."
Author: Priscille Sibley

43. "A year earlier, no company had been accorded more faith than Enron; by late November, none was trusted less. And so, a gasping gurgle, a desperate SOS: Enron, the emblem of free markets, the champion of deregulation, reached into its depleted treasury and forked over $100,000 to each of the major political parties' campaign war chests. Then, it shuttered its online trading unit - its erstwhile gem. On November 28, Standard & Poor's downgraded Enron to junk-bond level - which triggered provisions in Enron's debt requiring it to immediately repay billions of its obligations. This it could not do. Its stock was seventy cents and falling, and, now, no gatekeepers and no credit remained. Accordingly, in the first week of December, Enron, the archetype of shareholder value, availed itself of the time-honored protection for those who have lost their credit: bankruptcy."
Author: Roger Lowenstein
44. "Veal! Trust these bloated plutocrats to eat the flesh of poor, newly-born calves!"
Author: Sally Wentworth
45. "Cat priveste coordonatele intinse intre psihanaliza si filozofia lui Schopenhauer el nu numai ca a aparat intaietatea afectivitatii si importanta preponderenta a sexualitatii, dar a ghicit chiar mecanismul refularii; nu mi-au permis insa sa le cunosc doctrina. L-am citit pe Schopenhauer foarte tarziu. Pe Nietzsche, celalalt filosof ale carui intentii si puncte de vedere concorda adesea in maniera cea mai uimitoare cu rezultatele greu cucerite ale pishanalizei, l-am evitat mult timp tocmai din aceasta cauza; tin deci, mai putin la intaietate, dorind sa raman liber de orice prevenire."
Author: Sigmund Freud
46. "The Stock Exchange is something very different. There is no economy and no production of goods and services. There are only fantasies in which people from one hour to the next decide that this or that company is worth so many billions, more or less. It doesn't have a thing to do with reality or with the Swedish economy."
Author: Stieg Larsson
47. "I'm a rich man, Brick, yep, I'm a mighty rich man. Y'know how much I'm worth? Guess, Brick! Guess how much I'm worth! Close to ten million in cash an' blue chip stocks, outside, mind you, of twenty-eight thousand acres of the richest land this side of the valley Nile! But a man can't buy his life with it, he can't buy back his life with it when his life has been spent, that's one thing not offered in the Europe fire-sale or in the American markets or any markets on earth, a man can't buy his life with it, he can't buy back his life when his life is finished...Big Daddy: (pp. 65)"
Author: Tennessee Williams
48. "I will tell you, too, that every fairy tale has a moral. The moral of my story may be that love is a constraint, as strong as any belt. And this is certainly true, which makes it a good moral. Or it may be that we are all constrained in some way, either in our bodies, or in our hearts or minds, an Empress as well as the woman who does her laundry. ... Perhaps it is that a shoemaker's daughter can bear restraint less easily than an aristocrat, that what he can bear for three years she can endure only for three days. ... Or perhaps my moral is that our desire for freedom is stronger than love or pity. That is a wicked moral, or so the Church has taught us. But I do not know which moral is the correct one. And that is also the way of a fairy tale."
Author: Theodora Goss
49. "Within a couple of weeks of starting the Ph.D. program, though, she discovered that she'd booked passage on a sinking ship. There aren't any jobs, the other students informed her; the profession's glutted with tenured old men who won't step aside for the next generation. While the university's busy exploiting you for cheap labor, you somehow have to produce a boring thesis that no one will read, and find someone willing to publish it as a book. And then, if you're unsually talented and extraordinarily lucky, you just might be able to secure a one-year, nonrenewable appointment teaching remedial composition to football players in Oklahoma. Meanwhile, the Internet's booming, and the kids we gave C pluses to are waltzing out of college and getting rich on stock options while we bust our asses for a pathetic stipend that doesn't even cover the rent."
Author: Tom Perrotta
50. "GUIL: It [Hamlet's madness] really boils down to symptoms. Pregnant replies, mystic allusions, mistaken identities, arguing his father is his mother, that sort of thing; intimations of suicide, forgoing of exercise, loss of mirth, hints of claustrophobia not to say delusions of imprisonment; invocations of camels, chameleons, capons, whales, weasels, hawks, handsaws -- riddles, quibbles and evasions; amnesia, paranoia, myopia; day-dreaming, hallucinations; stabbing his elders, abusing his parents, insulting his lover, and appearing hatless in public -- knock-kneed, droop-stockinged and sighing like a love-sick schoolboy, which at his age is coming on a bit strong.ROS: And talking to himself.GUIL: And talking to himself."
