4. "The Tao, which others may call Natural Law or Traditional Morality or the First Principles of Practical Reason or the First Platitudes, is not one among a series of possible systems of value. It is the sole source of all value judgments. If it is rejected, all value is rejected. If any value is retained, it is retained. The effort to refute it and raise a new system of value in its place is self-contradictory. There has never been, and never will be, a radically new judgment of value in the history of the world. What purport to be new systems or…ideologies…all consist of fragments from the Tao itself, arbitrarily wrenched from their context in the whole and then swollen to madness in their isolation, yet still owing to the Tao and to it alone such validity as they posses."
Author: C.S. Lewis

Covek ne može samo gledati u kompas i karte; ploviti po unapred utvrdenim rutama; uspostaviti ugodnost kao jedini postulat putovanja i ocekivati da tako, osiguran od opasnosti i neprijatnih iznenadenja, od poraza i promašaja, pronade rajsku obalu.

Her husband was so worried he looked to start crying himself."
Author: Gail Carriger

Author: John Hickenlooper
27. "I find I like to talk with her as often as I can. It feels to me as if I'm standing with her on a very solid piece of ground after a tornado's passed. Strength, it seems, in somebody who had a lot of courage to begin with, can at last renew itself."

Pedem demissão sem ter outro emprego em vista. Aceitam um convite para fazer o que nunca fizeram. Estão dispostos a mudar de cor preferida, de prato predileto. Começam do zero inúmeras vezes. Não se assustam com a passagem do tempo. Sobem no palco, tosam o cabelo, fazem loucuras por amor, compram passagens só de ida."

Fa ceva, da-mi putin din sangele tau, sa ma incalzesc. Ajuta-mi sa fiu fericita ca sunt aici.I se parea excesiva, ca de atatea ori. Ce putea face la o ora cand cel mai bine este sa dormi? O aseza cu capul pe pieptul lui, apoi o inveli. Era concesiv.Ea isi spunea: "Nu trebuie sa dorm! Nu trebuie sa raman cu mine singura. Trebuie sa ma tin asa, inlantuita de el, pana la sfarsitul ultimului sfarsit!"- Eva, ce vrei sa-mi spui?- Ce nu stii?- Nimic de la plecarea mea.Se gandea: "Nimic de la plecarea lui! Si acum vine, si daca vine, il urmez, fara sa stiu pana unde ma va duce si pentru cat timp!"

Brayden compromised on breakfast, catching me before I hit the road, and we went out to a restaurant adjacent to one of Palm Springs' many lush golf resorts. Although I had long since offered to pull my share, Brayden continued picking up the bills and doing all the driving. As he pulled up in front of my dorm to drop me off afterward, I saw a surprising and not entirely welcome sight awaiting me: Adrian sitting outside on a bench, looking bored."

44. "So many events and moments that seemed insignificant add up. I remember how for the last Valentine´s Day, N gave flowers but no card. In restaurants, he looked off into the middle distance while my hand would creep across the table to hold his. He would always let go first. I realize I can´t remember his last spontaneous gesture of affection."
Author: Suzanne Finnamore

Author: The Prolific Penman
47. "Great travel writing consists of equal parts curiosity, vulnerability and vocabulary. It is not a terrain for know-it-alls or the indecisive. The best of the genre can simply be an elegant natural history essay, a nicely writ sports piece, or a well-turned profile of a bar band and its music. A well-grounded sense of place is the challenge for the writer. We observe, we calculate, we inquire, we look for a link between what we already know and what we're about to learn. The finest travel writing describes what's going on when nobody's looking."
Author: Tom Miller
48. "[Y]ou were too alert to the figurative possibilities of words not to see the phrase [angle of repose] as descriptive of human as well as detrital rest. As you said, it was too good for mere dirt; you tried to apply it to your own wandering and uneasy life ... I wonder if you ever reached it."
Author: Wallace Stegner
49. "She began to take exercise far too late, embarking on tiny cycling tours to music festivals, or flower shows, or doing the rounds of churches – there were so many spires in her uninspiring adopted home. Three kids, one episiotomy, two continents, many phobias, lots of depressions. Old fat lady's underwear. It was all a curse upon cycling, which she'd taken up for what reason? Believe it or not, not even the bulbous seventies there were still bulbous, middle-aged women such as she, who thought that the principle of cycling meant something. They cycled and they ate in health-food restaurants like Cranks or Ceres, their cussedness aimed at appeasing the Earth Goddess herself. They almost fucking overdosed on grated carrot; while sipping fucking prune juice. They invented being environmentally-conscious, with their vegetable-buying co-operatives which gave them an excuse to put gumboots on in town."
Author: Will Self
50. "I studied Comparative Literature at Cornell. Structuralism was real big then. The idea of reading and writing as being this language game. There's a lot of appeal to that. It's nice to think of it as this playful kind of thing. But I think that another way to look at it is "Look, I just want to be sincere. I want to write something and make you feel something and maybe you will go out and do something." And it seems that the world is in such bad shape now that we don't have time to do nothing but language games. That's how it seems to me."
