4. "Assim como todo excesso numa atividade costuma levar ao contrário do que se pretendia, as palavras servem de fato para tornar os pensamentos compreensíveis, mas só até certo ponto. Quando esse ponto é ultrapassado, elas tornam os pensamentos a serem comunicados mais e mais obscuros. Encontrar tal ponto é uma tarefa do estilo e uma questão da capacidade de julgar, pois toda palavra supérflua age diretamente contra seu objetivo."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

6. "Whenever an art form loses its fire, when it gets weakened by intellectual inbreeding and first principles fade into stale tradition, a radical fringe eventually appears to blow it up and rebuild from the rubble. Young Gun ultrarunners were like Lost Generation writers in the '20s, Beat poets in the '50s, and rock musicians in the '60s: they were poor and ignored and free from all expectations and inhibitions. They were body artists, playing with the palette of human endurance."
Author: Christopher McDougall

10. "Enquanto a consciência patriarcal aniquila o tempo e ultrapassa os lentos processos de transformação e evolução da natureza através do uso deliberado de experimentação e calculo, a consciência matriarcal permanece pesa ao encantamento da lua mutável. Como a lua, sua iluminação e sua liminosidade estão ligadas ao fluxo do tempo e a periodicidade. Deve esperar que o tempo amadureça enquanto a compreensão, como uma semente plantada, também amadureça com ele."
Author: Erich Neumann
11. "I feel like I was hit by all of geek culture at once while I was growing up in the '70s and '80s. Saturday morning cartoons like 'Star Blazers' and 'Robotech.' Live action Japanese shows like 'Ultraman' and 'The Space Giants.'"

12. "Appalling numbers of youth have been led into a cynical ultra-sophisticated attitude which regards drinking as a badge of social aptitude, which makes a fetish of sport and professes eroticism as a way of life.

Author: Francis Parker Yockey

Sim, o velho tinha razão: elas se sentia ultrajada, sua ferida não podia sarar e elas, propositadamente, procurava avivar sua ferida com esse mistério, com essa desconfiança de todos nós. Parecia se deliciar com sua dor, com esse sofrimento egoísta, se é que se pode expressar assim. Esse cultivo e prazer da dor era-me compreensível. Era o prazer de muitos ofendidos, ultrajados, oprimidos pelo destino e conscientes da injustiça dele."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Author: Gary Numan
15. "He would not want to sound like a haunted man; he would not want to sound as though he was calling from a welfare hotel, years too late, to say Yes, that was a baby we had together, it would have been a baby. For he could not help now but recall the doctor explaining about that child, a boy, who had appeared so mysteriously perfect in the ultrasound. Transparent, he had looked, and gelatinous, all soft head and quick heart; but he would have, in being born, broken every bone in his body."
Author: Gish Jen

17. "We hear about every other kind of women- beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated women, career women, talented women, divorced women. But so seldom do we hear of a godly woman - or of a godly man for that matter.....It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife than to be Miss America......it is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals to be old-fashioned than to be ultra modern. The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost all their illusions and their faith..... the world has enough woman who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The World had enough woman who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct. " Quote from Peter Marshall in the book Un Compromising"
Author: Hannah Farver

But dolphins, which fill the oceans with blipping and chirping, and whales, which mew and caw in ultramarine jazz - a true rhapsody in blue - are hunted to the edge of silence."
Author: Jay Griffiths
21. "Hollow then produced Kobel's tax returns for the past three years.When Ringling objected, Hollow said to Judge Rollins, "Your Honor, a man who files a tax return is of sound mind.""That's debatable," said the ultraconservative judge, drawing laughter from the courtroom."
Author: Jeffery Deaver

"If they try to hurt you and the only way to protect yourself is to tell them what you know about me, then you tell them. Straight off, okay?""No." "Promise me.""No!""I will possess your heart."Heat flared along the back of my neck. "What did you say?""My favorite song. 'I Will Possess Your Heart.'""By Death Cab for Cutie?"He snorted. "No, the little known T.I. Hip-hop remix. Yes, Death Cab for Cutie."... "Why? What's wrong with it?""Nothing, but it doesn't seem to fit you. It's kind of a sad song." "No it's pure confident. It's not 'I want' or 'I need', none of that crap." He slipped his hand over mine. "It's 'I will.'"A nervous laugh bubbled up. "You will, huh?"His fingers brushed my cheek, then slid into my hair. "I will."

24. "A mali mikrofoni?Kako bi bilo kad bi ih svi progutali,pa da preko malih zvucnika,koji bi se mogli nalaziti u nekom od džepova kombinezona,prenose zvuk vašeg srca?Kad biste nocu na skejtbordu prolazili ulicom,mogli biste cuti kako drugima kuca srce,a oni bi mogli cuti vaše srce,nešto kao na ultrazvuku.Cudno je što se pitam bi li svima srce pocelo kucati istovremeno,uskladeno,kao što sve žene koje žive zajedno imaju uskladene mjesecnice,za što znam,iako zapravo ne želim znati.To bi bilo tako neopisivo cudno,osim što bi ono mjesto u bolnici na kojem se radaju bebe zvucalo poput kristalnog lustera na brodu,jer djeca još ne bi mogla uskladiti otkucaje.A na ciljnoj crti njujorškog maratona sve bi zvucalo kao da je izbio pravi rat."

26. "Mover esa tacita altera el juego de relaciones de toda la casa, de cada objeto con otro, de cada momento de su alma con el alma entera de la casa y su habitante lejana.

"É um pouco assim: há linhas de ar em volta da sua cabeça, do seu olhar, zonas de detenção dos seus olhos, do seu olfato, do seu paladar, ou seja, você anda com seu limite por forae você não poderá ultrapassar esse limite quando pensar que já apreendeu plenamente qualquer coisa, a coisa que é igual a um iceberg, tem um pedacinho por fora e o mostra, com todo o resto do seu volume bem para lá do seu limite e foi assim que o Titanic afundou. Heste Holiveira sempre com os seus hexemplos. (SIC)"
Author: Julio Cortázar
28. "Still, one could argue—and many did—that Greenspan, at least, had no business being quite so shocked. Over the years, countless people had challenged his deregulatory dogma, including (to name just a few) Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman, both Nobel Prize–winning economists, and Brooksley Born, who was head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 1996 to 1999. Born eventually became something of a Cassandra figure for the crisis, since she repeatedly called for regulating the market for derivatives, those ultracomplex financial products that eventually helped bring down the economy. Those calls were silenced when Greenspan, along with then-Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and then-Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Arthur Levitt, took the extraordinary step of convincing Congress to pass legislation forbidding Born's agency from taking any action for the duration of her term."
Author: Kathryn Schulz

30. "In a first pregnancy, you don't have a child yet, so you can nap and see movies and exercise. The notion of 'baby' is abstract. You look at the ultrasound and don't really understand that the creature you're seeing is soon going to be your roommate."
Author: Kelli Williams
31. "I really discovered I had thyroid disease by accident. My son was having some health concerns, and as I filled out his patient history I noticed I had a lot of similar symptoms. I mentioned it to the doctor, and he ran blood work and finally an ultrasound of my thyroid."

32. "I have a type of bipolar that swings up and down all day long. There are significant mood swings within a day, within a week, within a month. I go through at least four major episodes a year. That's really the definition of bipolar rapid cycle. But I have ultra-rapid, so I have tiny little episodes all day long."
Author: Marya Hornbacher

Author: Michio Kaku

35. "I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something quite different about you, from the last time we were together, what could it be…."Was this my ultra-dose of Intoxicated taking effect?"I know!" said the prince happily. "You're a national disgrace!""And do you know what else is interesting," I replied. "In America, Prince is a dog's name."
Author: Paul Rudnick
36. "..."Emeninemletters," Caucasian girls from the wrong side of the tracks with big mouths and big attitudes, who weren't taking shit from anyone(except the men in their lives). They had thinly plucked eyebrows, corn-rowed hair, hip-hop vocabularies, and baby daddies, and they thought Paris Hilton was the ne plus ultra of feminine beauty." -Piper Kerman, page 137"
Author: Piper Kerman
37. "Having a persona people recognize, it's the thing that probably gets you paid the most - but it's also the thing that virtually every actor in the world doesn't want. 'Cause, like, no one would believe me if I wanted to play something ultra-realistic, like a gangster or something."
Author: Robert Pattinson
38. "Nietzscheja sem prežvecil in prebavil v treh dneh. Po tem velikem zalogaju mi je ostala samo še ena podrobnost osebnosti tega filozofa, še zadnji oreh, ki ga je bilo treba streti: njegovi brki! Federico Garcia Lorca, ki je bil ocaran nad Hitlerjevimi brki, je pozneje izjavil, da "so brki tragicna konstanta moškega obraza". Celo z brki sem nameraval preseci Nietzscheja! Moji že ne bodo zamorjeni, katastroficni, obteženi z wagnerjansko glasbo in meglo. Ne! Moji bodo zašiljeni, imperialisticni, ultraracianalisticni in usmerjeni k nebu, kot vertikalni misticizem, kot španski vertikalni sindikati."
Author: Salvador Dalí
39. "I try to stay fit and eat healthily, but I am not anxious to starve myself and become unnaturally thin. I don't find that look attractive on women and I don't want to become part of that trend. It's unhealthy and it puts too much pressure on women in general who are being fed this image of the ideal, which it is not. I think America has become obsessed with dieting rather than focusing on eating well, exercising and living a healthy life. I also think that being ultra-thin is not sexy at all. Women shouldn't be forced to conform to unrealistic and unhealthy body images that the media promote. I don't need to be skinny to be sexy."
Author: Scarlett Johansson
40. "I'm in Stockholm in my office. I just got here after seeing my eighth child on an ultrasound, so I'm in a good mood. It's beautiful: an energetic little skeleton."

Author: Stéphane Hessel

Author: Susan Spence
43. "The atmosphere beneath is languorous, and is so tinged with azure that what artists call the middle distance partakes also of that hue, while the horizon beyond is of the deepest ultramarine."
Author: Thomas Hardy
44. "What I mean is something like a closed circuit. Everybody on the same frequency. And after a while you forget about the rest of the spectrum and start believing that this is the only frequency that counts or is real. While outside, all up and down the land, there are these wonderful colors and x-rays and ultraviolets going on."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
45. "Alguém perguntou: 'você acha que ela é inteligente?'. Isso me pareceu uma pergunta ultrajante; sério, importa para alguém se ela é inteligente ou não? Sem dúvida basta que um rosto assim exista, embora a própria Garbo possa ter chegado ao ponto de lamentar a trágica responsabilidade de possuí-lo. Não tem graça nenhuma seu desejo de ficar sozinha; claro que deseja isso. Imagino que seja o único momento em que ela não se sente só: se a pessoa percorre um caminho singular, guarda sempre uma certa melancolia, mas não se lamenta em público."
Author: Truman Capote
46. "Le monde ne vaut que par les ultras et ne dure que par les modérés."
Author: Valéry
47. "V'è uno spettacolo più grande del mare, ed è il cielo;v'è uno spettacolo più grande del cielo, ed è l'interno dell'anima.Far il poema della coscienza umana, foss'anco d'un sol uomo, del più infimo fra gli uomini, sarebbe come fondere tutte le epopee in un'epopea superiore e definitiva. La coscienza è il caos delle chimere, delle cupidigie e dei tentativi, la fornace dei sogni, l'antro delle idee di cui si ha vergogna; è il pandemonio dei sofismi, è il campo di battaglia delle passioni. Penetrate, in certe ore, attraverso la faccia livida d'un uomo che sta riflettendo, guardate in quell'anima, in quell'oscurità; sotto il silenzio esteriore, vi sono combattimenti di giganti come in Omero, mischie di dragoni ed idre e nugoli di fantasmi, come in Milton, visioni ultraterrene come in Dante. Oh, qual abisso è mai quest'infinito che ogni uomo porta in sé e col quale confronta disperatamente la volontà del cervello e gli atti della vita!"
Author: Victor Hugo
48. "Patterns drawn in ultraviolet might make those ordinary little petals into the exotic peacocks of the botanical world, and yet we cannot appreciate them."
Author: Victoria Finlay
49. "My own ultraviolet darling. " Lolita"
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "Surprisingly dramatic glow some minerals gave off when illuminated with ultraviolet light, or "black light." In daylight, for instance, the mineral fluorite is a drab, chalky color; in a dark room under UV light, though, fluorite glows a brilliant blue; the mineral calcite shines bright red; and aragonite gives off a neon green. If you've ever stepped into a teenager's cavelike room decorated with black-light posters (less common now than they were in the 1970s, when my three sons were growing up), you've seen another version of UV fluorescence in action."
