1. "Oggi nessuna saggezza può pretendere di dare di più. La rivolta cozza instancabilmente contro il male, dal quale non le rimane che prendere un nuovo slancio. L'uomo può signoreggiare in sé tutto ciò che deve essere signoreggiato. Deve riparare nella creazione tutto ciò che può essere riparato. Dopo di che i bambini moriranno sempre ingiustamente, anche in una società perfetta. Nel suo sforzo maggiore l'uomo può soltanto proporsi di diminuire aritmeticamente il dolore del mondo."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "Agli oggetti non importa nulla della nostra vita, ma a noi interessa molto la storia di questi esseri feroci che invadono il nostro mattino. Questi esseri che si svegliano con noi all'alba e che continuano a ripetere crudeli: "Sei ancora qui con noi, ancora una volta viva."
Author: Alda Merini
3. "Monday ushers in a particularly impressive clientele of red-eyed people properly pressed into dry-cleaned suits in neutral tones. They leave their equally well-buttoned children idling in SUVs while dashing to grab double-Americanos and foamy sweet lattes, before click-clacking hasty escapes in ass-sculpting heels and polished loafers with bowl-shaped haircuts that age every face to 40. My imagination speed evolves their unfortunate offspring from car seat-strapped oxygen-starved fast-blooming locusts, to the knuckle-drag harried downtown troglodytes they'll inevitably become. One by one I capture their flat-formed heads between index finger and thumb for a little crush-crush-crushing, ever aware that if I'm lucky one day their charitable contributions will fund my frown-faced found art project to baffle someone's hallway."

Author: Colette
7. "A veces, cuando estamos muy tristes, nuestros sueños caen al suelo como pedacitos de estrellas que poco a poco se apagan, nuestro corazón llora en silencio para no hacer ruido. Los ojos del corazón ven mas allá de lo que la vista nos permite... Y cuando las lagrimas caen, hiela todo el cuerpo y el corazón de tanto amar se convierte en hielo para no sufrir mas, para ya no llorar... Pero que equivocado esta, al final habrá alguien para encender la llama de tu alma, que derrita el hielo que el dolor formo en tu interior. Y si volteas al cielo, te darás cuenta que quedan millones de estrellas y cada una es un sueño por cumplir. Aunque algunas se apaguen, habrán muchas que apenas empiezan a brillar. Y también te darás cuenta que hay estrellas que brillan, pero su luz no es mas que un eco, un espejismo de lo que algún día fue su verdadera luz, pero ahora ya no existen. Tu decides en que creer, solo no abandones tus sueños porque son la única puerta hacia la eternidad."
Author: Dulce María
8. "Dima spostò le gambe della ragazza, se le posò in grembo e iniziò a massaggiarle i piedi. Dopo un attimo di silenzio le rispose con falsa timidezza: «Facciamo pace. Ho un regalo per te, ma a una condizione».Sul volto di Irina comparve un sorriso malizioso: «Sentiamo».«Non chiamarmi mai più Dmitrij!» Rispose lui quasi urlando, incollando il suo sguardo a quello furbo di lei. Irina scoppiò a ridere di gusto. Sembrò una lucciola nella notte. Lui ricambiò quell'allegria con un sorriso che mostrò la sua dentatura bianca e perfetta.«Va bene, mio caro Dmitrij, farò la brava.» Lo schernì lei con una smorfia divertita e provocatoria.Dima la sollevò per i piedi e la ribaltò sul divano, bloccandola con il peso del suo corpo, e i due giovani si ritrovarono con le labbra quasi unite. Poteva sentire il respiro di Irina sotto il suo naso, quella vicinanza lo stordì. Avrebbe voluto baciarla con una tale passione da impedirle di respirare. Lei ridacchiò come una bambina."

9. "Hazmedememisti Iskender bu ihaneti. Sevip de kandirmayi. Insanin cani kadar sevdigi birini oyuna getirebilecegi aklinin ucundan dahi geçmemisti. O güne dek bilmezdi, birine bütün kalbinle muhabbet besleyip yine de onu incitmek istemenin mümkün olabilecegini.Sevginin ve askin karmakarisik halleri üzerine aldigi ilk hayat dersiydi bu."
Author: Elif Shafak
10. "Allora ti piace l'amore?"" E' pericoloso. Ci scappano ferite e poi per la giustizia altre ferite. Non è serenata al balcone, somiglia a una mareggiata di libeccio, strapazza il mare sopra, e sotto lo rimescola. Non lo so se mi piace."

Pero no cambia el hecho de que quiera ir.Así que esta vez, en vez de decir no, intento algo diferente.Y digo, sí."

16. "Not as we are but as we must appear, contractual ghosts of pity; not as we desire life, but as they would have us live, set apart in timeless colloquy. So it is required; so we bear witness, despite ourselves, to what is beyond us,each distant sphere of harmony forever poised, unanswerable. It is without consequence when we vaunt and suffer, or if it is not, all echoes are the same in such eternity. Then tell me, love,how that should comfort us-or anyone dragged half-unnerved out of this worldly place crying to the end "I have not finished."From 'Funeral Music"

Great waves of change have washed over the landscape, from the crumbling of colonial hegemonies in mid-century to the recent collapse of Communist empires. But too often, what rushed in to replace the old order were empty hopes-not only in the false allure of state socialism, non-alignment and single-party rule, but also the false glories of romantic nationalism and narrow tribalism, and the false dawn of runaway individualism."
Author: His Highness The Aga Khan

He says the only people he ever really wants to meet for a drink somewhere are all either dead or unavailable. He says he never even wants to have lunch with anybody, even, unless he thinks there's a good chance it's going to turn out to be Jesus, the person – or the Buddha, or Hui-neng, or Shankaracharya, or somebody like that. You know."
Author: J.D. Salinger

22. "Even today a good many distinguished minds seem unable to accept or even to understand that from a source of noise natural selection alone and unaided could have drawn all the music of the biosphere. In effect natural selection operates upon the products of chance and can feed nowhere else; but it operates in a domain of very demanding conditions, and from this domain chance is barred. It is not to chance but to these conditions that evolution owes its generally progressive course, its successive conquests, and the impression it gives of a smooth and steady unfolding."
Author: Jacques Monod

Hace rato que ha entregado la carta. —Y, a continuación, soltó unas cuantas palabras francesas tras las que supuse que se ocultaban otras tantas maldiciones jugosas, porque recurrió varias veces, igual que su hermano antes, a la palabra merde."

28. "Van Gogh on his brother's upcoming marriage: "It's because he's in Holland, where he's getting married one of these days. Now, while not denying the advantages of a marriage in the very least, once it has been done and one is quietly set up in one's home, the funereal pomp of the reception &c., the lamentable congratulations of two families (even civilized) at the same time, not to mention the fortuitous appearances in those pharmacist's jars where antediluvian civil or religious magistrates sit – my word – isn't there good reason to pity the poor unfortunate obliged to present himself armed with the requisite papers in the places where, with a ferocity unequalled by the cruellest cannibals, you're married alive on the low heat of the aforementioned funereal receptions."

Watch this."Mentally apologizing to her oldest friend, Fred seized Jonas by the shirt collar andheaved him out of his chair and through the (fortunately open) sliding door.Jonas was densely built ("Deliciously so," Dr. Barb might have said over the sound ofFred's retching), but no match for Fred's hybrid strength, and the air velocity he achievedwas really quite something.Fred ignored his wail ("My sundaeeee!"), which became easier to do the fainter it got."

36. "There is a pain you can't think your way out of. You can't talk it away. If there was someone to talk to. You can walk. One foot the other foot. Breathe in breathe out. Drink from the stream. Piss. Eat the venison strips. And. You can't metabolize the loss. It is in the cells of your face, your chest, behind the eyes, in the twists of the gut. Muscles, sinew, bone. It is all of you. When you walk you propel it forward. When you let the sled and sit on a fallen log and. You imagine him curling in the one patch of sun maybe lying over your feet. Then it sits with you, the Pain puts its arm over your shoulders. It is your closest friend. Steadfast. And at night you can't bear to hear your own breath unaccompanied by another and underneath the big stillness like a score is the roaring of the cataract of everything being and being torn away. Then. The Pain is lying beside your side, close. Does not bother you with sound even of breathing."

37. "Fakat eve gittim. Sehrin bir ucundan öbür ucuna.Kenar mahalleler. Birbirine ufunetli adaleler gibi geçmis, yaslanmis tahta evler. Her yagmurda, her küçük firtinada sancilanan ve biraz daha egrilip bügrülen bu evlerin önünden her geçisimde, çogunun ayri ayri maceralarini takip ederdim. Kiminin kaplamalari biraz daha kararmistir, kiminin sahnisini biraz daha yumrulmustur, kimi biraz daha öne egilmis, kimi biraz daha çömelmistir; ve hepsi hastadir, onlari seviyorum; çünkü onlarda kendimi buluyorum; ve hepsi iki üç senede bir ameliyat olmadikça yasayamazlar, onlari çok seviyorum; ve hepsi, rüzgârdan sancilandikça ne kadar inilderler ve içlerinde ne aziz seyler saklarlar, onlari çok... çok seviyorum."

42. "Nobody has the right to not be offended. That right doesn't exist in any declaration I have ever read. If you are offended it is your problem, and frankly lots of things offend lots of people.I can walk into a bookshop and point out a number of books that I find very unattractive in what they say. But it doesn't occur to me to burn the bookshop down. If you don't like a book, read another book. If you start reading a book and you decide you don't like it, nobody is telling you to finish it. To read a 600-page novel and then say that it has deeply offended you: well, you have done a lot of work to be offended."
Author: Salman Rushdie
