If I had to choose between dating Todd and missing the boat, I was fully prepared to drown."

10. "W ksiazce Foucaulta mowa jest czesto o "antropologicznej skonczonosci". Wyobrazam sobie, jak tego rodzaju formulki moga dzialac na mlodych. Oczywiscie brzmi to uczeniej niz "nedza czlowieka", "znikomosc trwania" ludzkich dziejów. Z wszystkich szalbierstw najgorsze jest jezykowe, bo najtrudniej dostrzegalne dla oglupionych ludzi naszej epoki. Trzeba powiedziec, ze droge otwarl Heidegger i ze jesli jakis filozof chce doswiadczyc ostracyzmu, na wlasnej skórze przezyc wymieniona wyzej "skonczonosc", to wystarczy mu odrzucic zargon i uzyc potocznego, sensownego jezyka. Automatycznie wytworzy sie wokól niego pustka.W sensie literackim rzadki blad warto jest wiecej od znanej, wypróbowanej i banalnej prawdy; w sensie duchowym jest wprost przeciwnie.Niezwyklosc nie ma zadnej wartosci na plaszczyznie duchowej. Liczy sie tylko glebia, stopien poglebienia danego przezycia."

Author: Locke

Sammy could not have known that one day he would come to regard all the things that their loving each other had seemed to put at so much risk – his career in comic books, his relations with his family, his place in the world – as the walls of a prison, an airless, lightless keep from which there was no hope of escape….He recalled his and Tracy's parting at Penn Station on the morning of Pearl Harbor, in the first-class compartment of the Broadway Limited, their show of ordinary mute male farewell, the handshake, the pat on the shoulder, carefully tailoring and modulating their behavior through there was no one at all watching, so finely attuned to the danger of what they might lose that they could not permit themselves to notice what they had"

An object that is moving will not change its velocity until a net force acts upon it.' In other words, depending on what's happening in my life at any given moment, I can either be the laziest human being on the planet, or the busiest. I'm perfectly content to do absolutely nothing until I'm catalyzed by some person or project, and then I go nonstop until some countervailing force acts upon me, and I revert back to static mode."
Author: Michael J. Fox
24. "Explaining how the two of them, up there in the Green Mountains, had managed to dial down life's urgencies and dial up its pleasures and richness, Gary put it beautifully and poetically: "We've discovered a way" he confided with a sense of gleeful wonderment, "to bend time."

28. "People misunderstand happiness. They think it's the absence of trouble. That's not happiness, that's luck. Happiness is the ability to live well alongside trouble. No two people have the same trouble, or the same way of metabolizing it. Q.E.D.: No two happy people are happy in the same way. Even Tolstoy was afraid to admit this, and I don't blame him. Every day brilliant people, people smarter than I, wallow in safe tragedy and pessimism, shying from what really takes guts: recognizing how much courage and labor happiness demands."-Tracy Farber"

Author: Ryan Knighton

Szerencsére azonban az ember mindig változik, fejlodik, halad.(Beavatás)"

Francis Ford Coppola did this early on. You tape a movie, like a radio show, and you have the narrator read all the stage directions. And then you go back like a few days later and then you listen to the movie. And it sort of plays in your mind like a film, like a first rough cut of a movie."
