1. "Daca te dai batuta fara sa încerci ?i imposibilul nu are rost sa te mai nume?ti conducatoarea lor. Tu ai puteri incredibile, pe care nimeni nu le cunoa?te deocamdata.

3. "A belligerent samurai, an old Japanese tale goes, once challenged a Zen master to explain the concept of heaven and hell. The monk replied with scorn, "You're nothing but a lout - I can't waste my time with the likes of you!"His very honor attacked, the samurai flew into a rage and, pulling his sword from its scabbard, yelled "I could kill you for your impertinence.""That," the monk calmly replied, "is hell."Startled at seeing the truth in what the master pointed out about the fury that had him in its grip, the samurai calmed down, sheathed his sword, and bowed, thanking the monk for the insight."And that,"said the monk "is heaven."The sudden awakening of the samurai to his own agitated state illustrates the crucial difference between being caught up in a feeling and becoming aware that you are being swept away by it. Socrates's injunction "Know thyself" speaks to the keystone of emotional intelligence: awareness of one's own feelings as they occur."

6. "La fatica e la pena", per ottenere i beni necessari alla vita, e il piacere di "incorporarli" sono così strettamente legati assieme nel ciclo biologico che la perfetta eliminazione della pena e dello sforzo del lavoro non solo spoglierebbe la vita biologica dei suoi piaceri più naturali, ma priverebbe la vita specificamente umana della sua stessa vivacità e vitalità. La condizione umane è tale che la pena e lo sforzo non sono semplici sintomi, che possono essere rimossi senza cambiare la vita stessa; sono piuttosto modi in cui la vita, insieme con la necessità cui è legata, si fa percepire. Per i mortali, la "facile vita degli dei" sarebbe una vita senza vitalità."
Author: Hannah Arendt

The solution was to jettison the pro-Muggle moral but keep the warty cauldron, so by the middle of the sixteenth century a different version of the tale was in wide circulation among wizarding families. In the revised story, the Hopping Pot protects an innocent wizard from his torch-bearing, pitchfork-toting neighbours by chasing them away from the wizard's cottage, catching them and swallowing them whole."
Author: J.K. Rowling

Author: Jacques Lacan
12. "Traveling together into what the poet Adrienne Rich has called ‘the cratered night of female memory,' they undertook a shared process of self-discovery, working together to probe the possibility of woman's creative power. Through their exploration of hermetic and magical paths, they developed a common pictorial language, derived from the realms of domestic life, the fairy tale and the dream."
Author: Janet Kaplan

It may serve, let us hope, to symbolize some sweet moral blossom, that may be found along the track, or relieve the darkening close of a tale of human frailty and sorrow."
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
20. "At its best, fantasy rewards the reader with a sense of wonder about what lies within the heart of the commonplace world. The greatest tales are told over and over, in many ways, through centuries. Fantasy changes with the changing times, and yet it is still the oldest kind of tale in the world, for it began once upon a time, and we haven't heard the end of it yet."
Author: Patricia A. McKillip

Author: Regina Doman

Author: Seth Grahame Smith
