1. "Elle l'embrassait , et puis , après l'avoir lâché , le regardait et le reprenais pour l'embrasser encore une fois , comme si , ayant mesuré en elle-même tout l'amour qu'elle pouvait lui porter ou lui exprimer, elle avait décidé qu'une mesure manquait encore ."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "Nothing, in truth, can ever replace a lost companion. Old comrades cannot be manufactured. There is nothing that can equal the treasure of so many shared memories, so many bad times endured together, so many quarrels, reconciliations, heartfelt impulses. Friendships like that cannot be reconstructed. If you plant an oak, you will hope in vain to sit soon under its shade.For such is life. We grow rich as we plant through the early years, but then come the years when time undoes our work and cuts down our trees. One by one our comrades deprive us of their shade, and within our mourning we always feel now the secret grief of growing old.If I search among my memories for those whose taste is lasting, if I write the balance sheet of the moments that truly counted, I surely find those that no fortune could have bought me. You cannot buy the friendship of a companion bound to you forever by ordeals endured together."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

7. "We may not have made our grand statement, but we will still have our battle. We are armed with tak and we will triumph. Your efforts have been in vain. The battle is about to begin."
Author: D.J. MacHale
8. "Just as nothing is more foolish than misplaced wisdom, so too, nothing is more imprudent than perverse prudence. And surely it is perverse not to adapt yourself to the prevailing circumstances, to refuse 'to do as the Romans do,' to ignore the party-goer's maxium 'take a drink or take your leave,' to insist that the play should not be a play. True prudence, on the other hand, recognizes human limitations and does not strive to leap beyond them; it is willing to run with the herd, to overlook faults tolerantly or to share them in a friendly spirit. But, they say, that is exactly what we mean by folly. (I will hardly deny it -- as long as they will reciprocate by admitting that this is exactly what is means to perform the play of life.)"
Author: Desiderius Erasmus
9. "Mon efficacité dans le combat concret et le corps à corps brutal apparaît ridicule en comparaison de celle d'Edo. Certes. Mais moi, je sais creuser des gouffres de peines chez l'être le plus insensible. Je parviens à faire naître le désir cruel, l'envie aliénante, la frustration implacable. J'obsède, j'énerve, je tends et j'agace. Je fascine, j'excite, je détruis et rends dément. Je suis le roi de l'artifice. Je fais exploser dans le ciel de ma victime des comètes hallucinatoires, des soleils délirants et des éclairs de folie avant de laisser tomber sur ses jours une nuit noire épaisse et dense, qui ne précède aucune aurore prometteuse. Et si je suis vraiment d'humeur fouillis-souillonne comme maintenant, je peux en tirer un plaisir indécent quasi onaniste. Que l'on se rassure : je ne vais pas casser le jouet de mes petits camarades. Juste m'amuser un peu avec..."
Author: Eli Esseriam
10. "Adversity is a natural part of being human. It is the height of arrogance to prescribe a moral code or health regime or spiritual practice as an amulet to keep things from falling apart. Things do fall apart. It is in their nature to do so. When we try to protect ourselves from the inevitability of change, we are not listening to the soul. We are listening to our fear of life and death, our lack of faith, our smaller ego's will to prevail. To listen to your soul is to stop fighting with life--to stop fighting when things fall apart; when they don't go our away, when we get sick, when we are betrayed or mistreated or misunderstood. To listen to the soul is to slow down, to feel deeply, to see ourselves clearly, to surrender to discomfort and uncertainty and to wait."
Author: Elizabeth Lesser
11. "Vinudien skatos - govs noravusies un iebridusi bietes. Es saku: "Vaidav, izlidziet!" Un ko jus domajat! Aizskreja. Vienreiz iekoda kaja un tudal atpakal. Ausis nolaidis, aste kajstarpe. Vinš jutas neerti. Es ari. Govs tapat. Visiem trim kauns."
Author: Eriks Hanbergs
12. "It is in vain that we would circumscribe the power of one half of our race, and that half by far the most important and influential."

13. "Trebuie sa ai în tine înca haos, spre-a da nascare unei stele dansatoare. Va spun, voi înc-aveti în sinea voastra destul haos. Vai! Vine timpul când omul nu va mai putea sa dea nascare unei stele dansatoare. Vai! Vine timpul celui mai de dispret dintre toti oamenii, cel ce nu mai poate-a se dispretui pe sine. Iata! V-arat ultimul om. „Ce e iubirea? Ce-i creatia? Ce e dorinta? Ce este-o stea?" — asa se-ntreaba cel din urma om, facându-ne cu ochiul. Îngust va fi atunci pamântul, se va vedea cum topaie pe el ultimul om, cel care micsoreaza orice lucru. Prasila lui este indestructibila, ca puricele de pamânt; utimul om o sa traiasca cel mai mult.„Noi", zice-va ultimul om, facându-ne cu ochiul, „suntem inventatorii fericirii."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
14. "It is vain to expect a well-balanced government without a well-balanced society."
Author: Gideon Welles
15. "Urging the need for community upon American religionists is a vain enterprise; the experiential encounter with Jesus or God is too overwhelming for memories of community to abide, and the believer returns from the abyss of ecstasy with the self enhanced and otherness devalued."
Author: Harold Bloom
16. "Don Juan : [...] Les voilà, mes spectres, les spectres de ce que je ne suis pas. Ce sont eux qui me persécutent et m'écoeurent, et qui me survivront. Ils vivront, car il sont le mensonge. Mais si je dois payer ma vie au prix de toutes les sottises et de tous les mensonges qu'on aura dits sur moi, peut-être vaudrait-il mieux n'avoir pas vécu. Je vais changer d'habit et mettre mon beau costume. Il faut être bien vêtu quand on va être arrêté."
Author: Henry De Montherlant

25. "Nostalgia não é saudade.sim, são sinonimas, mas "sinônimo" é o mismo que "semelhante" e não "idêntico""Idêntico" é cem por cento "igual", enquanto que em "semelhante há pelo menos um percentual minimo de "diferente", de cualquier maneira saudade não e nostalgia.Nostalgia é a nausea que se encontra numa paisagem. num cheiro. numa música, num vento que nos carrega para tão proximo de reviver una história, porem se esvai num relance.Saudade é a falta que se sente do que já se foi, saudade se afina, saudade não e provocada no lance de uma sensação. Saudade e a própia sensação constante, um sentimiento abstrato quase sólido a beira do palpável."
Author: Juliano Ramos De Oliveira
26. "Salaisuus:olen toista maata,syön sudenmutta en tule kylläiseksi.Yöllä purenmetsästäjältä korvan irti,nuolen iholta hikeäja pihkaa,nuolen ja nielen.Sellainen olisin,jos riisuisin vaatteet,jos olisi karvaja herkkä vainu."
Author: Kristiina Wallin

Author: Mario Puzo
28. "No one is adequate to comprehending the misery of my lot! Fate obliges me to be constantly in movement: I am not permitted to pass more than a fortnight in the same place. I have no Friend in the world, and from the restlessness of my destiny I never can acquire one. Fain would I lay down my miserable life, for I envy those who enjoy the quiet of the Grave: But Death eludes me, and flies from my embrace. In vain do I throw myself in the way of danger. I plunge into the Ocean; The Waves throw me back with abhorrence upon the shore: I rush into fire; The flames recoil at my approach: I oppose myself to the fury of Banditti; Their swords become blunted, and break against my breast: The hungry Tiger shudders at my approach, and the Alligator flies from a Monster more horrible than itself. God has set his seal upon me, and all his Creatures respect this fatal mark!"
Author: Matthew Gregory Lewis
29. "With .NET once an API is published it's available to all programming languages at the same time."
Author: Miguel De Icaza
30. "The dismaying thing about the classic totalitarian mind is that any given gear, though mutilated, will have at its circumference unbroken sequences of teeth that are immaculately maintained, that are exquisitely machined. Hence the cuckoo clock in Hell—keeping perfect time for eight minutes and thirty-three seconds, jumping ahead fourteen minutes, keeping perfect time for six seconds, jumping ahead two seconds, keeping perfect time for two hours and one second, then jumping ahead a year. The missing teeth, of course, are simple, obvious truths, truths available and comprehensible even to ten-year-olds, in most cases. The willful filing off of gear teeth, the willful doing without certain obvious pieces of information-...That is closest I can come to explaining the legions, the nations of lunatics I've seen in my time."
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
31. "Though we have rightly applauded our ancestors for their spiritual achievements (and do not and must not discount them now), those of us who prevail today will have done no small thing. The special spirits who have been reserved to live in this time of challenges and who overcome will one day be praised for their stamina by those who pulled handcarts."
Author: Neal A. Maxwell
32. "All Juleps are made for present use, and therefore it is in vain to speak of their duration."
Author: Nicholas Culpeper
33. "They called out. Everything was still. Finally, after vainly trying to force the door, they"
Author: Oscar Wilde
34. "It is the principal paradox of this period that the only sphere of our economic system in which government intervention is urgently necessary is also the only point at which action of the State is now effectively inhibited. It is in the region of wages and prices that we really require the continual economic leadership of government, but in our prevailing trade structure any such suggestion has come to be regarded as impious."
Author: Oswald Mosley
35. "Don't be vain because you happen to have talent. You are not responsible for that; it was not of your doing. What you do with your talent is what matters."
Author: Pablo Casals
36. "I like me better naked. I don't mean that in a vain way... When you put clothes on, you immediately put a character on. Clothes are adjectives, they are indicators. When you don't have any clothes on, it's just you, raw, and you can't hide."
Author: Padma Lakshmi

Author: Ralph Merkle
39. "Entre plusieurs opinions également reçues, je ne choisissais que les plus modérées, tant à cause que ce sont toujours les plus commodes pour la pratique, et vraisemblablement les meilleures, tous excès ayant coutume d'être mauvais, comme aussi afin de me détourner moins du vrai chemin, en cas que je faillisse, que si, ayant choisi l'un des extrêmes, c'eût été l'autre qu'il fallu suivre. (3e partie, para 2)"
Author: René Descartes
40. "Liberty a word without which all other words are vain."
Author: Robert G. Ingersoll
41. "And while faith based on theological reasoning is today universally engaged in a bitter struggle with doubt and resistance from the prevailing brand of rationalism, it does seem that the naked fundamental experience itself, that primal seizure of mystic insight, stripped of religious concepts, perhaps no longer to be regarded as a religious experience at all, has undergone an immense expansion and now forms the soul of that complex irrationalism that haunts our era like a night bird lost in the dawn."
Author: Robert Musil
42. "Tout ça avait pour but d'illustrer le péril du conformisme, et la difficulté de préserver vos convictions, quoi qu'en pense les autres. [...] Nous avons tous besoin d'être accepté, mais soyez persuadé que vos convictions sont uniques, les vôtres, même si on les trouve anormales ou impopulaires, même si le troupeau dit « C'est maaaaaaaaal ». Robert Frost a dit : « Deux routes s'offraient à moi, et là j'ai suivi celle où on n'allait pas, et j'ai compris toute la différence. »"
Author: Robin Williams
43. "Budamas devintoje klaseje, turejau vaidinti spektaklyje. Kadangi prieš tai sirgau gripu, klasiokai vaidmenis išsidalino be manes. Man liko šmeklos vaidmuo."
Author: Sigitas Parulskis
44. "Il me semblait entendre ces paroles sur un rythme d'une douceur infinie, car son regard avait presque la sonorité, et les phrases que ses yeux m'envoyaient retentissaient au fond de mon coeur comme si une bouche invisible les eût soufflées dans mon âme."
Author: Théophile Gautier
45. "I think there's a time to work, and everyone has to kind of adjust. And then there's a time to relax, and be the mom or take the kids on vacation when you need to wind down. So it's a matter of planning, and being able to map out your year or your week or let's start with the day. It is just being multi-tasking and being available."
Author: Vanessa Williams
46. "Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world's view of us."
Author: Virginia Woolf
47. "We must not indulge in unfavorable views of mankind, since by doing it we make bad men believe they are no worse than others, and we teach the good that they are good in vain."
Author: Walter Winchell
48. "It is an absolutely vain endeavor to attempt to reconstruct or even comprehend the nature of a human being by simply knowing the forces which have acted upon him. However deeply we should like to penetrate, however close we seem to be drawing to truth, one unknown quantity eludes us: man's primordial energy, his original self, that personality which was given him with the gift of life itself. On it rests man's true freedom; it alone determines his real character."
Author: Wilhelm Von Humboldt
49. "That which attracts the world must please and pander to the self-importance of man. The world itself is a vain show, and likes its own. Consequently there is nothing which so carries the mass of men along with it as that which flatters the vanity of the human mind. It may assume the lowliest air, but sinful man seeks his own honour and present exaltation."
Author: William Kelly
50. "Words are not just wind. Words have something to say. But if what they have to say is not fixed, then do they really say something? Or do they say nothing? People suppose that words are different from the peeps of baby birds, but is there any difference, or isn't there? What does the Way rely upon, that we have true and false? What do words rely upon, that we have right and wrong? How can the Way go away and not exist? How can words exist and not be acceptable? When the Way relies on little accomplishments and words reply on vain show, then we have rights and wrongs of the Confucians and the Mo-ists. What one calls right the other calls wrong; what one calls wrong the other calls right. But if we want to right their wrongs and wrong their rights, then the best to use is clarity."
