1. "Ne pokušavam zamisliti nekog osobnog Boga; dovoljno je stajati sastrahopoštovanjem pred ustrojstvom svijeta i iskusiti ga onoliko kolikosu to naša nedostatna osjetila u stanju."
Author: Albert Einstein
2. "Smiles from girls like you are what started the Trojan War."

3. "The mighty trojans fell, and so did i.A wooden horse you were not, yet in a pool of my own blood i lie.Dawn follows every dusk, and all that rises - fall it must.So, my blood shall find its way and trickle down your eyes.The day your deeds of today, eventually make you cry."
Author: Anurag Anand
4. "Premda zvuci kao ironija, ali cinjenica je da su sveucilišta stotine tisuca ljudi obucila za poslove koji ce uskoro jednostavno nestati.Obucila su ljude da održavaju ustroj koji se ne može održati. Elita, jednako kao i oni koji su stekli uske, specijalizirane, gotovo zanatske vještine, znaju jedino kako hraniti zvijer sve dok ne umre. A, kad jednom umre, ostat ce bespomocni. Ne ocekujte da ce nas spasiti. Ne znaju kako. Ne znaju cak ni kako postavljati valjana pitanja. A kad se sve uruši, kad naš truli financijski sustav s tim tisucama milijardi bezvrijedne aktive doživi imploziju i naši imperijalni ratovi završe poniženjem i porazom, elita mocnika razotkrit ce se kao bespomocna i samozaludena jednako kao i svi mi ostali."
Author: Chris Hedges
5. "It was at a conference in Cyprus in 1976, where the theme was the rights of small nations, that I first met Edward Said. It was impossible not to be captivated by him: of his many immediately seductive qualities I will start by mentioning a very important one. When he laughed, it was as if he was surrendering unconditionally to some guilty pleasure. At first the very picture of professorial rectitude, with faultless tweeds, cravats, and other accoutrements (the pipe also being to the fore), he would react to a risqué remark, or a disclosure of something vaguely scandalous, as if a whole Trojan horse of mirth had been smuggled into his interior and suddenly disgorged its contents. The build-up, in other words, was worth one's effort."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
6. "So, I see technology as a Trojan Horse: It looks like a wonderful thing, but they are going to regret introducing it into the schools because it simply can't be controlled."
Author: Daniel Greenberg
7. "[Y]our agricultural revolution is not an event like the Trojan War, isolated in the distant past and without relevance to your lives today. The work begun by those neolithic farmers in the Near East has been carried forward from one generation to the next without a single break, right into the present moment. It's the foundation of your vast civilization today in exactly the same way that it was the foundation of the very first farming village."
Author: Daniel Quinn
8. "The catch about not looking a gift horse in the mouth is that it may be a Trojan horse."
Author: David Seller
9. "Can I just point something out?" Fletcher asked. "That is an awful plan. On a scale of one to ten - the Trojan War being a ten and General Custer verus all those Indians being a one - your plan is a zero. I don't think it is a plan at all. I think it's just a series of happenings that are, to be honest, unlikely to follow on from each other in the way in which everyone's probably hoping.""Do you have a better plan?" Valkyrie asked."Of course not. I'm a man of action, not thought."Valkyrie nodded. "You're defintely not a man of thought.""Why are you in charge anyway? What do you know about organising something like this?""I have faith," Tanith said."As do I," said Ghastly.Valkyrie smiled at them gratefully. "So you think the plan will work?""God, no," said Ghastly."Sorry, Val," said Tanith"

10. "Majka pak, bez prethodne najave, otvara poklopac na NJENOJ glavi, rukom samouvjereno poseže unutra i pocinje pre¬kapati i rovati. Sve razbaca i ništa ne vrati na svoje mjesto. Nakon kraceg vremena izvuce nešto što joj se svidjelo, promatra to pod povecalom, a zatim odbaci. Inace majka dru¬gacije postupa i dijelove koje je izvadila najprije snažno išcetka, a zatim ocisti spužvom i krpom. Potom energicnim pokretima osuši kotacic i, ocišcenog, ponovo ga vraca u glavu. Kao da je nožic u stroju za mljevenje mesa."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
11. "Troja ist verfallen seit mehr als dreitausend Jahren. Homer lebt."
Author: Ernst Beutler
12. "Vozac je rekao djedu koliko koštaju karte i dok je djed vrlo pažljivo prebrojavao novac - jer je svjetlo u autobusu bilo preslabo - vozac se okrenuo prema putnicima, digao desnu ruku i rekao: „How!" i prasnuo u smijeh, i svi su prasnuli u smijeh. Tada sam se poceo bolje osjecati znajuci da su prijateljski nastrojeni i ne zamjeraju nam što nismo imali vozne karte.Onda smo pošli prema stražnjem dijelu autobusa i tamo sam vidio jednu bolesnu ženu. Oko ociju joj je bilo neprirodno crnilo, a usne su joj bile jarko crvene kao od krvi. Kad smo prošli pokraj nje, stavila je ruku iznad usta i zavrištala: „Wa...huuu!" Ali sigurno ju je ubrzo prestalo boljeti jer se pocela smijati i svi ostali su se smijali. Covjek koji je sjedio pokraj nje se takoder smijao i pritom se lupao po nozi. Imao je veliku sjajnu kopcu na kravati pa sam znao da su oni bogati i mogu platiti lijecnika ako im je potreban."
Author: Forrest Carter
13. "Revenge writing is a female genre. Men who have been left by women or made cuckolds by rivals either lick their wounds in humiliated silence or start the Trojan Wars. Having no other power or public voice, the betrayed woman reaches for her pen."
Author: Frances Wilson
14. "Wielu ludzi tak bardzo przywyklo do przebywania tylko ze soba, ze zgola nie porównywaja sie z innymi, lecz pedza swój monologowy zywot w spokojnym, radosnym nastroju, na dobrych rozmowach ze soba, nawet na smiechach. Jezeli sie jednak zmusi ich do porównania siebie z innymi, sklaniaja sie wtedy do markotliwego niedoceniania samych siebie: do tego stopnia, iz trzeba ich zmuszac, zeby znowu nauczyli sie dobrego, slusznego mniemania o sobie od innych: i jeszcze od tej nabytej opinii beda chcieli zawsze cos odciagnac i wytargowac. - Przeto nalezy pewnym ludziom uzyczyc ich samotnosci, i nie byc tak glupim, jak to sie czesto zdarza, zeby ich z tego powodu zalowac"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
15. "One of Romana's particularly important discoveries during this period had been the extent of the Doctor's fascination for a planet in the Mutter's Spiral galaxy — Sol 3, known to its inhabitants as Earth. [...] The Doctor had spent so much time there, and so much time in the company of its people, that it was hard to interact with him on any meaningful level without at very least a working knowledge of the planet's history, social structure and idioms.And so one afternoon she plucked a computer tablet from the TARDIS library and read up on it all, history and culture, from the birth of the planet from drifting clouds of cosmic dust, through the Stone Age, the Trojan War, Homer, Shakespeare, the Freat Break-Out into Space, right up to its eventual immolation in the 57th segment of time. ('Been there, seen it, done it, wrote most of that, caused that,' the Doctor kept saying over her shoulder, irritatingly.)"
Author: Gareth Roberts
16. "Kaže da se svijet dijeli na ljude koji zamišljaju svoj sprovod i one koji ga ne zamišljaju, te da pametni i umjetnicki nastrojeni ljudi spadaju u prvu kategoriju."
Author: Gayle Forman
17. "Zdjecia ksiecia Williama moglabym ogladac w ilosciach hurtowych, najlepiej w calej gamie strojów, ale oczywiscie zdaje sobie sprawe z tego, ze zadza ta jest czyms niepozadanym i niewlasciwym"
Author: Helen Fielding
18. "Zamišljao sam svijet kao jedan veliki stroj. Strojevi ne dolaze sa suvišnim dijelovima, znaš. Uvijek dolaze s tocnom kolicinom dijelova koji su im potrebni. Stoga pomislih, kada bi cijeli svijet bio jedan veliki stroj, ne bih mogao biti suvišan. Morao sam biti ovdje iz nekoga razloga. A to znaci da iz nekoga razloga ovdje moraš biti i ti."
Author: Hugo Cabret
19. "I bought a packet of Trojan® Ultra Pleasure Extra Sensitive condoms: ‘No. 1 in AMERICA'. They smell nothing like a positive first sexual experience."
Author: Joe Dunthorne
20. "Pod kvazi-mitskim totalitetom tehnicke racionalnosti prijeti nam inteligencija bez patosa, inteligencija kojoj nije potreban nikakav jezik koji ima svoj vlastiti smisao jer ionako sve funkcionira bez bilo kakvog proturjecja; ta inteligencija ne zna za spomen jer nije ugrožena nikakvim zaboravom: covjek kao kompjuterizirana inteligencija bez osjetljivosti na patnju i bez morala, ukratko: covjek kao rapsodija nedužnosti jednoga glatko funkcionirajuceg stroja. Treba li doista to biti covjek nakon smrti covjeka?"
Author: Johann Baptist Metz
21. "...she'll cry, and if she does, I probably will, and then she'll have found a way in, and I will not let her pierce my walls in a Trojan horse of sympathy."
Author: Jonathan Tropper
22. "- One sie nie starzeja. (...) Kiedy jeszcze bylem sam na wyspie, obrazy ze snu stawaly sie coraz wyrazniejsze. W koncu wyskoczyly z moich mysli i wdarly sie w tutejsza rzeczywistosc. Nadal jednak pozostaja fantazja. A fantazja ma te cudowna moc, ze to, co stworzy, na zawsze pozostaje mlode i zywe. (...) Slyszales o Roszpunce, mój chlopcze?Pokrecilem glowa.- Ale o Czerwonym Kapturku slyszales? Albo o Królewnie Sniezce czy Jasiu i Malgosi? (...) Ile oni maja lat, jak myslisz? Sto? Moze tysiac? Sa zarazem bardzo mlodzi i bardzo starzy, poniewaz zrodzili sie w wyobrazni ludzi. Nie, nie przypuszczam, by karzelki sie zestrzaly i posiwialy. Nawet stroje, które nosza, nie maja najmniejszego chocby zagniecenia. Inaczej jest z nami, zwyklymi smiertelnikami. My sie starzejemy i siwiejemy. To my sie zdzieramy na strzepy i pewnego dnia odchodzimy. Z naszymi snami jest inaczej. One potrafia zyc w innych ludziach przez dlugi czas po naszym odejsciu z tego swiata."
Author: Jostein Gaarder
23. "It was The Aeneid that had included the fascinating story of the Trojan Horse. Why anyone would accept a gift from a departing, defeated army had made no sense to her then and still did not. But, again, men had made the decision, probably drunk with their victory. Any woman would look at such a gift and wonder why it had been given, and then have someone quickly dispose of it."
Author: Kasey Michaels
24. "...je li se i Bog tako osjecao kad je stvorio covjeka?Da je stvorio prekrasan stroj za ubijanje?"
Author: Kate Furnivall
25. "You think you're the first type-A, gun-toting, danger-loving, alpha dog to fall ass-over-end in love with the damsel in distress?" Trojanowski actually laughed out loud. "Don't flatter yourself."
Author: Kerrigan Byrne
26. "In one universe, they are gorgeous, straight-teethed, long-legged, wrapped in designer fashions, and given sports cars on their sixteenth birthdays. Teacher smile at them and grade them on the curve. They know the first names of the staff. They are the Pride of the Trojans. Oops – I mean Pride of the Blue Devils.In Universe #2, they throw parties wild enough to attract college students. They worship the stink of Eau de Jocque. They rent beach houses in Cancún during Spring Break and get group-rate abortions before prom."
Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
27. "Differentiating from parental introjects and psychological defences based on the emotional pain of childhood is essential not only for neurotic or seriously disturbed individuals; it is a central developmental issue in every person's life."
Author: Lisa Firestone
28. "Ona je bila posjednicki nastrojena... i to zbog njega.To prekrasno, ludo stvorenje — ili slijepo i gluho stvorenje, štogod bila — hladnokrvno je to izjavilo kao da govori: »Dodaj mi solenku«, bez imalo svijesti da se Zemljina os upravo snažno nagnula."
Author: Loretta Chase
29. "Na svaku od dve šipke sa krova trole možeš da nanižeš barem troje, ako si uporan i cetvoro neljubaznih penzionera, jer se njihov bezobrazluk (utemeljen na konstantnoj žurbi nikuda, koju prikazuju kao žurbu svuda) leci samo elektrošokovima, za šta pogodno dodu debeli strujni gajtani kojima se trola napaja. Naravno da samo pravljenje ovog penzoražnjica nece ubiti obezobražene, obezbožene starce ociju krvavih od želje da vladaju svetom, ne. Preživeli su ratove. Preživeli su bedu. Preživeli su i raskoš koju ti nikada nisi osetio. Preživeli su život. Sad hoce da prežive i smrt. Šipka kroz stomak nije ništa za njih. Više ih ljuti što celi komfor metalnog štapa nije samo njihov, nego se guraju sa još troje jednako pomahnitalih. Tu leži sav problem, oni žele da žive sami u zgradama, da imaju svoju privatnu trolu, svoju licnu poštu bez redova, svoju pijacu, svoje ulice. Ljuti ih cak i to što je smrt svacija kurva. E pa danas je dan."
Author: Marko Šelić
30. "Hiljadu necijih srecnih casaka bice kao ovaj, ali ovaj nikada više. Hiljadu tudih ljubavi bice kao ova, ali ova nikada više. Nikada: jedina konacnost. Prvi put znam šta je sreca, osjecam je, vidim, mirišem. Cio svijet i cijela vasiona, nas troje. Nikog drugog osim nas nema."
Author: Meša Selimović
31. "Velmi brzy zacal projevovat zájem o matematiku - dokonce tak silný, že mu otec, který nechtel zanedbat jeho filozofické, jazykové a humanitní vzdelání, zakázal v jedenácti letech císt matematické knihy, dokud nedosáhne veku patnácti let. Zákaz odvolal, když syna pristihl, jak kusem uhlí píše na zed v jakési zapadlé chodbe jejich domu svuj vlastní dukaz, že souctem úhlu v trojuhelníku je vždy prímý úhel. Bylo to asi jediné inteligentní graffiti v dejinách."
Author: Milan Mareš
32. "What was in it for me? I wasn't asking for any sort of reciprocation, after all. Why didn't she want her erogenous zones stimulated? I have no idea. All I know is that you could, if you wanted to, find the answers to all sorts of difficult questions buried in that terrible war-torn interregnum between the first pubic hair and the first soiled Trojan."
Author: Nick Hornby
33. "National historical myths are a way of giving identity and more authenticity to a people. Exodus flattered the Jews half a millennium after it allegedly took place by making them feel like heroic refugees from slavery, and righteous conquerors of a land corrupted by paganism, wealth, and sex. The Illiad made the politicians, merchants, sailors, farmers, and schoolteachers of Athens in the fifth and fourth centuries B.C. into the heirs of austere, remorseless, honorable, courageous warriors, a race of demigods. Contrast this with the real Athenians of ca. 375 B.C. -- their bellies full of fishcakes, their throats bloated with cheap resined wine, their far-flung sharp commercial deals a laughable, reverse mirror-image of the noble warriors of the Trojan War era."
Author: Norman F. Cantor
34. "What we call ‘normal' is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience. It is radically estranged from the structure of being. The more one sees this, the more senseless it is to continue with generalized descriptions of supposedly specifically schizoid, schizophrenic, hysterical ‘mechanisms.' There are forms of alienation that are relatively strange to statistically ‘normal' forms of alienation. The ‘normally' alienated person, by reason of the fact that he acts more or less like everyone else, is taken to be sane. Other forms of alienation that are out of step with the prevailing state of alienation are those that are labeled by the ‘formal' majority as bad or mad."
Author: R.D. Laing
35. "Fiction has subversive potential. People let it into their minds, like the Trojan Horse. They don't know what's inside. You hook them with the story, and God can work below the level of their consciousness. Fiction can be propaganda for evil or convey a theme that impacts people for good."
Author: Randy Alcorn
36. "Kada je konobarica donijela jelo, cestitao sam joj na trudnoci. - Mora da ste presretni - rekao sam.- Ne baš - odgovorila je. - Bila je to slucajnost. Kada je otišla, ostao sam pogoden njezinom iskrenošcu. Ta usputna primjedba podsjetila me na brojne slucajnosti koje igraju ulogu u našem dolasku u život... i našem putovanju ka smrti. Tu je žena koja je slucajno zanijela dijete, ali ce ga zasigurno voljeti. Ja cu pak, slucajnošcu zvanom rak, ostaviti troje djece koja ce odrastati bez moje ljubavi."
Author: Randy Pausch
37. "Motherhood is the strangest thing, it can be like being one's own Trojan horse."
Author: Rebecca West
38. "I'm the son of Jupiter, I'm a child of Rome, consul to demigods, praetor of the First Legion. I slew the Trojan sea monster, I toppled the black throne of Kronos, and destroyed Titan Krios with my own hand. And now I'm going to destroy you Porphyrion, and feed you to your own wolves.""Wow, dude," Leo muttered, "You been eating red meat?"
Author: Rick Riordan
39. "I grabbed his hand and dragged him down the street to a convenience shop. I abandoned him once inside and went down the stationery aisle. I'd already known I wanted to get him some colored pencils, but now I finally had the occasion to do it. Not long after I'd picked out a big box of them, I heard Rafael call out from another part of the store, "Trojans? Like The Iliad?"I didn't waste a second finding him and pulling him out of that aisle."
Author: Rose Christo
40. "Trojan, Durex, Lifestyles, Trojan Magnum (oh yeah, my three foot cock definitely needed those), Contempo, Vivid and Rough Rider. Seriously? There was a condom brand called Rough Rider? Why not just go with Fuck Her Hard and be done with it? I stood in the "Family Planning" aisle of the grocery store, trying to decide which condom brand was more effective. Family Planning…give me a break. How many people came to this aisle because they were planning a family? They came to this aisle to AVOID planning a family. --Carter"
Author: Tara Sivec
41. "Existují domácí bohové a naše každodenní práce je zpusobem, jak projevit uznání temto domácím duchum, kterí jsou pro udržení našeho života tak duležití. Rýžák je pak posvátným predmetem, a když tento nástroj užíváme s pécí, deláme neco pro duši. V tomto smyslu je cištení koupelny urcitým druhem terapie, protože existuje vzájemnost mezi skutecnou místností a jistou komnatou v srdci. Koupelna, která se objevuje v našich snech, je zároven pokojem našeho domu i poetickým objektem, který popisuje prostor v duši."
Author: Thomas Moore
42. "An artist is the magician put among men to gratify--capriciously--their urge for immortality. The temples are built and brought down around him, continuously and contiguously, from Troy to the fields of Flanders. If there is any meaning in any of it, it is in what survives as art, yes even in the celebration of tyrants, yes even in the celebration of nonentities. What now of the Trojan War if it had been passed over by the artist's touch? Dust. A forgotten expedition prompted by Greek merchants looking for new markets. A minor redistribution of broken pots. But it is we who stand enriched, by a tale of heroes, of a golden apple, a wooden horse, a face that launched a thousand ships--and above all, of Ulysses, the wanderer, the most human, the most complete of all heroes--husband, father, son, lover, farmer, soldier, pacifist, politician, inventor and adventurer..."
Author: Tom Stoppard
43. "Greks, kuru es senak aukleju samudžinatas sirds stigas, mon grand peche radieux, ir saplacis lidz savai butibai: lidz neaugligam un egoistiskam netikumam; un tieši to es svitroju lauka un noladu. Jus varat zoboties par mani un piedraudet atbrivot tiesas zali, bet, kamer man mute neiebazis sprudu un nenoslapes mani, es kliegtin kliegšu par savu nabaga taisnibu. Briesmigi velos, lai visa pasaule uzzinatu, cik loti es milu savu Lolitu, šo Lolitu, balu un aptraipitu, ar svešu bernu zem sirds, bet vel arvien pelekam acim, arvien krasotam skropstam, arvien vel gaišmatainu un salkani smaidošu, arvien vel Karmensitu, arvien vel manu, manu… Changeons de vie, ma Carmen, allons vivre quelque part ou nous ne serons jamais separes."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
