4. "Oh it was gorgeousness and gorgeosity made flesh. The trombones crunched redgold under my bed, and behind my gulliver the trumpets three-wise silverflamed, and there by the door the timps rolling through my guts and out again crunched like candy thunder. Oh, it was wonder of wonders. And then, a bird of like rarest spun heavenmetal, or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now, came the violin solo above all the other strings, and those strings were like a cage of silk round my bed. Then flute and oboe bored, like worms of like platinum, into the thick thick toffee gold and silver. I was in such bliss, my brothers."
Author: Anthony Burgess
5. "L'Avion est une machine sans doute, mais quel instrument d'analyse! Cet instrument nous a fait découvrir le vrai visage de la terre. Les routes, en effet, durant des siècles, nous ont trompés. Nous ressemblions à cette souveraine qui désira visiter ses sujets et connaître s'ils se réjouissaient de son règne. Ses courtisans, afin de l'abuser, dressèrent sur son chemin quelques heureux décors et payèrent des figurants pour y danser. Hors du mince fil conducteur, elle n'entrevit rien de son royaume, et ne sut point qu'au large des campagnes ceux qui mourraient de faim la maudissaient.(Terre des Hommes, ch. IV)"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

Author: Barbara W. Tuchman
8. "Religion: Systême de doctrine et de conduite inventé par Dieu lui-même pour le bien de ses prêtres et le salut de nos âmes. Il y a plusieurs religions sur la terre, mais la seule véritable est toujours celle de nos pères, qui étaient trop sensés pour se laisser tromper ; toutes les autres religions sont des superstitions ridicules qu'il faudrait abolir si l'on était assez fort. La vraie religion est celle que nous croyons vraie, à laquelle nous sommes accoutumés, ou contre laquelle il serait dangereux de disputer. La religion du prince porte toujours des caractères indubitables de vérité."
Author: Baron D'Holbach
9. "Algunos de nosotros dedicamos la vida entera a mantener oculto un secreto, a salvo de quienes intentan entrometerse y atesorándolo como si fuera una perla, solo para acabar descubriendo que se nos escapa cuando menos lo esperamos, revelado por un destello de miedo en los ojos cuando nos pillan desprevenidos, por un dolor repentino, rabia u odio, o por una vergüenza que lo consume todo."
Author: C.W. Gortner
10. "- Na és maga, hogy áll a nokkel, Daniel?- Igazság szerint nem tudok róluk túl sokat.- Tudni senki sem tud róluk sokat, még Freud sem, sot, talán még ok maguk sem, de nem is kell. Olyan ez, mint az elektromos áram: ahhoz, hogy megüssük vele az ujjunkat, nem szükséges tudnunk, hogyan muködik."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Author: Colm Meaney
12. "The name Alaska is probably an abbreviation of Unalaska, derived from the original Aleut word agunalaksh, which means "the shores where the sea breaks its back." The war between water and land is never-ending. Waves shatter themselves in spent fury against the rocky bulwarks of the coast; giant tides eat away the sand beaches and alter the entire contour of an island overnight; williwaw winds pour down the side of a volcano like snow sliding off a roof, building to a hundred-mile velocity in a matter of minutes and churning the ocean into a maelstrom where the stoutest vessels founder."
Author: Corey Ford
13. "He brings the cigarette butt to his mouth and lights up. He breathes in, and coughs; a rattling helicopter with a broken blade crashing into a herd of trombone playing sheep falling off a cliff into a DIY shop with a discount on spanners."
Author: Craig Stone
14. "As for the forces, electromagnetism and gravity we experience in everyday life. But the weak and strong forces are beyond our ordinary experience. So in physics, lots of the basic building blocks take 20th- or perhaps 21st-century equipment to explore."
Author: Edward Witten
15. "Mach dir keine Gedanken über den Weg, sondern widme dich dem ersten Schritt. Er ist das Schwierigste, nur von dir hängt er ab. Sobald der erste Schritt getan ist, lass alles geschehen, wie es geschieht, dann wird sich der Rest ergeben. Schwimm nicht mit dem Strom - sei der Strom!"
Author: Elif Shafak
16. "A kapu elott megváltásnak érzem a sötétséget és a szelet. Lélegzem, ahogy csak a tüdombol telik, s arcomon oly melegnek és lágynak érzem a levegot, mint még soha. Leányok, virágos rétek, fehér felhok képe surran át hirtelen a fejemen. Lábam magától mozog a bakancsban, gyorsabban megyek, szaladok. Katonák haladnak el mellettem, beszélgetésük felizgat, anélkül, hogy megérteném. A földben erok keringenek, s a talpamon át belém áradnak. Elektromosság pattog az éjszakában, a front tompán dübörög, mint egy dobverseny. Tagjaim hajlékonyan mozognak, ízületeimet erosnek érzem, lihegek, fújok. Az éjszaka él, és én is élek."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
17. "Osjecao sam se trom i spor i mrzio sam sebe što Heleni ne mogu bolje da pokažem koliko je volim ti tom trenutku. Morala je misliti da oklijevam zato što je ne želim, a ne zato što je toliko mnogo želim."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
18. "When we say two bodies 'touch', what we mean (without knowing it) is that both electromagnetic fields are interacting to avoid physical interpenetration and ... that happens well before subatomic particles touch!"
Author: Felix Alba Juez
19. "Me habían vuelto a pagar y mi deuda había aumentado en ocho dólares. Me atormentaba a mí mismo preguntándome adónde iba a parar ese dinero, aunque yo lo sabía muy bien. Salía deshidratado del trabajo, como lo esperaba la compañía. Marcaba entonces mi combinación en la fuente y obtenía un chorro de Gaseosa; veinticinco centavos que volaban de mi sueldo. Como el chorro era escaso pedía otro; cincuenta centavos. La cena era insulsa, como siempre, y yo no podía pasar más de dos mordiscos de Gallina. En seguida sentía hambre y me iba a la cantina donde me daban a crédito algunas Crocantes. Las Crocantes me secaban la garganta y tenía que volver a la Gaseosa. Y la Gaseosa me daba ganas de comer. Comía otra Crocante... ¿Había pensado en todo esto Fowler Schocken cuando organizó Astromejor Verdadero, el primer trust esférico? ¿De la Gaseosa a las Crocantes, de las Crocantes a los Astro de los Astro a la Gaseosa?Y el dinero adelantado se pagaba con un interés del seis por ciento."
Author: Frederik Pohl
20. "Hundert teppichklopfende Weiber können einen Himmel erstürmen, können jungen Schwalben die Flügelspitzen stumpf machen und brachten Oskars in die Aprilluft getrommeltes Tempelchen mit weningen Schlägen zum Einsturz."
Author: Günter Grass
21. "The Prince stood beside the timpanist to count his rests for him and see that he came in in the right place. I suppressed all the trumpet passages which were clearly beyond the players' grasp. The solitary trombone was left to his own devices; but as he wisely confined himself to the notes with which he was thoroughly familiar, such as A flat, D and F, and was careful to avoid all others, his success in the role was almost entirely a silent one."
Author: Hector Berlioz
22. "You're like that single wild flower that grows from the crack in the pavement: miraculous growth with no water source or fertile soil. A person walking by would step around that flower to avoid crushing it. It's not like the field of wild flowers you tromp through carelessly, crushing them under your feet, knowing that the next day will bring a hundred more."
Author: J.B. Salsbury
23. "I joined the Army and was sent to the MIT radiation laboratory after a few months of introduction to electromagnetic wave theory in a special course, given for Army personnel at the University of Chicago."
Author: Jack Steinberger
24. "Grade 9: I was too small for football, too shy for drama class, but I did have a passion for music. And so, with a mouth full of braces (and a glorious mullet), I accepted that the trombone would be a fantastic scholastic counterpart to my extracurricular loves: country music, and the guitar."
Author: Jason McCoy
25. "Suits obviously had helped to promote bad government and he was as guilty as anyone for wearing them so steadfastly for twenty years. Of late he had become frightened of the government for the first time in his life, the way the structure of democracy had begun debasing people rather than enlivening them in their mutual concern. The structure was no longer concerned with the purpose for which it was designed, and a small part of the cause, Nordstrom thought, was probably that all politicians and bureaucrats wore suits."
Author: Jim Harrison
26. "Standing amid the tan, excited post-Christmas crowd at the Southwest Florida Regional Airport, Rabbit Angstrom has a funny sudden feeling that what he has come to meet, what's floating in unseen about to land, is not his son Nelson and daughter-in-law Pru and their two children but something more ominous and intimately his: his own death, shaped vaguely like an airplane."
Author: John Updike
27. "As for the orchestra,' Quinsonnas continued, 'it has fallen very low since his instrument no longer suffices to feed the instrumentalist! Talk about a trade that's not practical. Ah, if we could use the power wasted on the pedals of a piano for pumping water out of coal mines! If the air escaping from ophicleides could also be used to turn the Catacomb Company's windmills! If the trombone's alternating action could be applied to a mechanical sawmill - oh, then the executants would be rich and many!"
Author: Jules Verne
28. "You haven't stopped smiling since you came in.""You want me to yell?""No, no," Buddy hastily assured him. "You just keep right on smiling." He picked delicately at the remaining pie. "You sure did sleep late today."Tate grinned at him. "Yep.""Didn't go fishing, either.""Nope.""Sure was a lot of tromping around going on upstairs a few minutes ago. What were you doing?""Just moving a few things." Tate took a drink of coffee."What things?"He was beginning to wish he'd strangled Buddy at birth. "My things.""Were you moving them somewhere in particular, or just dragging them up and down the hall for the exercise?"Tate ground his teeth together. "I was moving them to Abby's room.""Oh." Buddy gave a half grin. "Can I have some money?""No." Tate glared at him."Well, it was worth a shot. I should have asked while you were still smiling."
Author: Katherine Allred
29. "Witch, he's not coming back," the demon Rydstrom told Mari. "Don't waste your time waiting for him."Cade asked Mari, "What did you do to the Lykae anyway?"She absently murmured, "I've killed him."Mari glanced away from the entrance when met with silence. "He won't regenerate from injuries," she explained. "Unless he returns to me to have it reversed, the hex will eventually destroy him."Tierney, who looked to be Tera's younger brother, said, "You made him mortal?"They all seemed shocked at her viciousness, except for Cade, who as far as she could tell from his demonic countenance, appeared admiring. "Remind me not to piss you off, witch," he said."
Author: Kresley Cole
30. "My advice." She pressed her fingers to her chest. "But didn't you recently say that I was a ‘mad creature' who was ‘soft in the head'? Sniff, sniff, Rydstrom. Sniff, sniff. I was so crushed that I ate a gallon of Ben & Jerry's, except I didn't because Valkyrie don't eat."
Author: Kresley Cole
31. "Holly's forgiven you?" "Almost mostly. But she still gives me slack about it when she's sick. I take it as a husbandly badge," he said, puffing out his chest. "Sick? You told me she was fully immortal." "Yeah, but she still throws up some, because, well, the thing of it is... Ah, fuck, Rydstrom, I knocked her up." "You're going to be a father?" Gods help the world. I'm going to be an uncle? "I got Holly, like, on the first shot. Nix is calling me Bull's-eye and the Womb Raider."
Author: Kresley Cole
32. "L'homme a conscience d'être un Dieu et il a raison parce que Dieu est en lui. Il a conscience d'être un cochon et il a également raison parce que le cochon est en lui. Mais il se trompe lorsqu'il prend le cochon pour un Dieu."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
33. "That's about when it happens. Coming down the escalator from one Nord floor to the next we see Little Teena has commandeered the grand piano. He's busy busting out Bach to all the bewildered shoppers. Little Teena just doesn't look for Nordstromy sitting there, with his red hair slick up in a pompadour, his girth squeezing out between his black leather jacket and the lip of his jeans, gumball machine rings decorating every single one of his fingers. But it's hen he goes from Bach to Great Balls of Fire that we attract the attention of the Nordfuck's militia."
Author: Lidia Yuknavitch
34. "Toute ma vie, j'ai été habitué à ce que les autres se trompent sur mon compte. C'est le lot de tout homme public. Il lui faut une solide cuirasse; car s'il fallait donner des explications pour se justifier quand on se méprend sur vos intentions, la vie deviendrait insupportable. Je me suis fait une règle de ne jamais intervenir pour rectifier ce genre d'erreur, à moins que ne l'exige la cause que je défends. Ce principe m'a épargné bien du temps et bien des tracas."
Author: Mahatma Gandhi
35. "While he attends to his rats, Persinger gives me the lowdown on the haunt theory. Why would a certain type of electromagnetic field make one hear things or sense a presence? What's the mechanism? The answer hinges on the fact that exposure to electromagnetic fields lowers melatonin levels. Melatonin, he explains, is an anti-convulsive; if you have less of it in your system, your brain —in particular, your right temporal lobe— will be more prone to tiny epileptic-esque microseizures and the subtle hallucinations these seizures can cause."
Author: Mary Roach
36. "Sometimes he feels a pull towards Francesca. She was the reason he came into the group. It was her misery that united them and somehow her personality that kept them together when everyone split. She's the one that writes the letter to kept the world informed. She listens to the news every hour to make sure everyone's safe. So tonight he walks away even though she's moved forward to give him a hug. Because he wants to kiss her, and knows she'll hate him for it and that he'll hate himself. He knows it's for all the wrong reasons and that he'll end up thinking of Tara Finke and her Brazilian peacekeeper and will Trombal and how he doesn't do romance, but it eats the space between him and Francesca every time he's in the room with her."
Author: Melina Marchetta
37. "Why is it when I hear the phrase ‘trompe l'oeil' I think of oysters" I heard her say once."
Author: Michael Ondaatje
38. "Voici les idées de cette génération qui avait connu dans son enfance les privations de la guerre, qui avait eu vingt ans à la Libération; voici le monde qu'ils souhaitaient léguer à leurs enfants. La femme reste à la maison et tient son ménage (mais elle est très aidée par les appareils électroménagers; elle a beaucoup de temps à consacrer à sa famille). L'homme travaille à l'extérieur (mais la robotisation fait qu'il travaille moins longtemps, et que sontravail est moins dur). Les couples sont fidèles et heureux; ils vivent dans des maisons agréables en dehors des villes (les banlieues). Pendant leurs moments de loisir ils s'adonnent à l'artisanat, au jardinage, aux beaux-arts. À moins qu'ils ne préfèrent voyager, découvrir les modes de vie et les cultures d'autres régions, d'autres pays."
Author: Michel Houellebecq

Author: Miroslav Antić
41. "RELISH! What a special name for the minced pickle sweetly crushed in its white-capped jar. The man who had named it, what a man he must have been. Roaring, stamping around, he must have tromped the joys of the world and jammed them in this jar and writ in a big hand, shouting, RELISH! For its very sound meant rolling in sweet fields with roistering chestnut mares, mouths bearded with grass, plunging your head fathoms deep in trough water so the sea poured cavernously through your head. RELISH!"
Author: Ray Bradbury
42. "Nordstrom believes that great service begins with showing courtesy to everyone—customers, employees, and vendors."
Author: Robert Spector

Author: Stendhal
44. "Radio Wave Sickness and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity are easily preventable and one can only wonder how much longer the insanity of modern governments is going to be allowed to continue in this area."
Author: Steven Magee
45. "- T'as pas apporté des fleurs à Irina?-Offrir des fleurs aux femmes est une hérésie. Les fleurs sont des sexes obscènes, elles symbolisent l'éphémère et l'infidélité, elles s'écartèlent sur le bord des chemins, s'offrent à tous les vents, à la trompe des insectes, aux nuages de graines, aux dents des bêtes; on les foule, on les cueille, on y plonge le nez. A la femme qu'on aime il faudrait offrir des pierres, des fossiles, du gneiss, enfin une de ces choses qui durent éternellement et survivent à la flétrissure.C'est ce que j'aurai aimé répondre à Volodia mais mon russe est trop faible et je dis:-Si! mais elles ont fané en route. Le banya, Volodia, tu l'as préparé?"
Author: Sylvain Tesson
46. "The point is... to live one's life in the full complexity of what one is, which is something much darker, more contradictory, more of a maelstrom of impulses and passions, of cruelty, ecstacy, and madness, than is apparent to the civilized being who glides on the surface and fits smoothly into the world."
Author: Thomas Nagel
47. "You can be in Tokyo or Alberta at four in the morning in your hotel and you can still practice if you feel like it. A trombone cannot do that at four in the morning."
Author: Toots Thielemans

Author: Trombone Shorty
49. "She can't see it, Joss. We're at the far end of the electromagnetic spectrum here, surrounded by gamma rays. I know school isn't your favorite thing, but honestly, don't you pay attention at all?"
Author: Wendy Mass
50. "Und hinter allem? Hinter allem, was du Gott, Strom und Stern, Nacht, Spiegel oder Kosmos und Hilde oder Evelyn nennst – hinter allem stehst immer du selbst.Eisig einsam. Erbärmlich. Groß. Dein Gelächter. Deine Not. Deine Frage. Deine Antwort. Hinter allem,uniformiert, nackt oder sonstwie kostümiert, schattenhaft verschwankt, in fremder fast scheuer ungeahnt grandioser Dimension: Du selbst. Deine Liebe. Deine Angst.Deine Hoffnung."
Author: Wolfgang Borchert
