3. "Als ik één ding kan is het liefhebben. Dat lijkt niet veel bijzonders, maar ik ben er trots op.Ik heb het geleerd zoals een zwerfhond leert zwemmen: omdat hij met de rest van de worp in een jutezak werd gepropt en in een snelstromende rivier is geworpen.Die ene die het tegen alle verwachtingen in gered heeft, dat ben ik.Met in mijn oren nog het gejank van degenen die het niet haalden, moest ik leren ergens van te houden.Ik ben niet onder gegaan.Ik heb de kant bereikt.Ik heb lief.Andere mensen dragen hun verdriet in hun hart.Ongezien holt dat hen vanbinnen uit. Het is mijn redding geweest dat ik mijn verdriet aan de buitenkant draag, waar het niemand kan ontgaan."
Author: Arthur Japin

Author: C.S. Lewis
9. "I have been taunted on various platforms recently for becoming a neo-conservative, and have been the object of some fascinating web-site and blog stuff, from the isolationist Right as well as from the peaceniks, who both argue in a semi-literate way that neo-conservativism is Trotskyism and 'permanent revolution' reborn.Sometimes, you have to comb an overt anti-Semitism out of this propaganda before you can even read it straight. And I can guarantee you that none of these characters has any idea at all of what the theory of 'permanent revolution' originally meant."
Author: Christopher Hitchens

Nu ga ik er trots op te zeggen dat ik onmenselijk ben, dat ik niet tot mensen en regeringen behoor, dat ik niets met geloofsbelijdenissen en principes te maken heb. Ik heb niets uitstaande met de krakende machine der mensheid - ik behoor tot de aarde!"
Author: Henry Miller
14. "The Wolf trots to and fro,The world lies deep in snow,The raven from the birch tree flies,But nowhere a hare, nowhere a roe,The roe -she is so dear, so sweet -If such a thing I might surpriseIn my embrace, my teeth would meet,What else is there beneath the skies?The lovely creature I would so treasure,And feast myself deep on her tender thigh,I would drink of her red blood full measure,Then howl till the night went by.Even a hare I would not despise;Sweet enough its warm flesh in the night.Is everything to be deniedThat could make life a little bright?The hair on my brush is getting grey.The sight is failing from my eyes.Years ago my dear mate died.And now I trot and dream of a roe.I trot and dream of a hare.I hear the wind of midnight howl.I cool with the snow my burning jowl,And on to the devil my wretched soul I bear."
Author: Hermann Hesse
15. "I met him in the language lab. In a lull between lab sections, I was editing tapes for freshman German when this shuffling man of hair came in. Possibly twenty, or forty; possibly student, or faculty, Trotskyite or Amish farmer, human or animal; a theif lumbering out of a camera shop, laden with lenses and light meters; a bear who after a terrible and violent struggle ate a photographer. This beast approached me."
Author: John Irving

17. "[Jürgen Habermas' obituary to friend and philosopher, Richard Rorty]One small autobiographical piece by Rorty bears the title 'Wild Orchids and Trotsky.' In it, Rorty describes how as a youth he ambled around the blooming hillside in north-west New Jersey, and breathed in the stunning odour of the orchids. Around the same time he discovered a fascinating book at the home of his leftist parents, defending Leon Trotsky against Stalin. This was the origin of the vision that the young Rorty took with him to college: philosophy is there to reconcile the celestial beauty of orchids with Trotsky's dream of justice on earth. Nothing is sacred to Rorty the ironist. Asked at the end of his life about the 'holy', the strict atheist answered with words reminiscent of the young Hegel: 'My sense of the holy is bound up with the hope that some day my remote descendants will live in a global civilization in which love is pretty much the only law."
Author: Jürgen Habermas
18. "The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated. By the side of the river he trotted as one trots, when very small, by the side of a man who holds one spellbound by exciting stories; and when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea."
Author: Kenneth Grahame

Author: Michel Onfray

Author: Moira Young
22. "I couldn't help noticing how all the best Marxist analyses are always analyses of a failure ... Like, why did Paris Commune go wrong? Trotskyites. Why did the October Revolution go wrong? And so on ... OK, we screwed it up, but we can give the best theory why it had to happen."
Author: Slavoj Žižek

"Soy todo el hombreEl hombre herido por quién sabe quiénPor una flecha perdida del caosHumano terreno desmesuradoSí desmesurado y lo proclamo sin miedoDesmesurado porque no soy burgués ni raza fatigadaSoy bárbaro tal vezDesmesurado enfermoBárbaro limpio de rutinas y caminos marcadosNo acepto vuestras sillas de seguridades cómodasSoy el ángel salvaje que cayó una mañanaEn vuestras plantaciones de preceptorPoetaAntipoetaCultoAnticultoAnimal metafísico cargado de congojasAnimal espontáneo directo sangrando sus problemasSolitario como una paradojaParadoja fatalFlor de contradicciones bailando un fox-trotSobre el sepulcro de DiosSobre el bien y el malSoy un pecho que grita y un cerebro que sangraSoy un temblor de tierraLos sismógrafos señalan mi paso por el mundo."
