Favorite Vale Quotes

1. "One of the cafés had that brilliant idea of putting up a slogan: 'the best protection against infection is a good bottle of wine', which confirmed an already prevalent opinion that alcohol is a safeguard against infectious disease. Every night, towards 2 a.m., quite a number of drunk men, ejected from the cafés , staggered down the streets, vociferating optimism."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "Es así y punto. Y es así, no sirve soñar. O al menos, más vale no hacerlo, porque daña más. Mejor tener sueños a lo Niko, los seguros, los que te compras. Me voy a comprar unas zapatillas nuevas, las Dreams, así los sueños por lo menos los llevas en los pies y los pisoteas."
Author: Alessandro D'Avenia
3. "Believe it or not, some of us have piercings and tattoos and dye our hair because we think it looks pretty, not for any deep sociological reason. This isn't an act of protest against cultural or social repression. It's not a grand, deliberately defiant gesture against capitalists or feminists or any other social group. It's not even the fashion equivalent to sticking two fingers up at the world. The boring truth of it, Gabriel, is that I don't dress like this to hurt my parents or draw attention to myself or make a statement. I just do it because I think it looks nice. Disappointed?"
Author: Alex Bell
4. "I pity you Juliet. You don't know what love is. You think it's Valentine's Day, and weekends in Italy. You think it's drinking champagne in some expensive restaurant and being bought stupid bloody underwear. But that's just the trimmings. The decoration. They're just gestures. Without trust, and respect, and kindness, they don't mean shit. I thought love was about caring about someone day in and day out, about being there when it's rucking amazing and still wanting to be there when it feels like crap, I thought it was about forever."
Author: Alexandra Potter
5. "It makes Brooke feel strange in her stomach. It is like the feeling when she reads a book like the one about the man with the bomb, or thinks a sentence, just any old sentence like: the girl ran across the park, and unless you add the describing word then the man or the girl are definitely not black, they are white, even though no one has mentioned white, like when you take the the out of a headline and people just assume it's there anyway. Though if it were a sentence about Brooke herself you'd have to add the equivalent describing word and that's how you'd know. The black girl ran across the park."
Author: Ali Smith
6. "Mind control is built in lies and manipulation of attachment needs.Valerie Sinason, from the Forward of the book"
Author: Alison Miller
7. "There were no formerly heroic times, and there was no formerly pure generation. There is no one here but us chickens, and so it has always been: A people busy and powerful, knowledgeable, ambivalent, important, fearful, and self-aware; a people who scheme, promote, deceive, and conquer; who pray for their loved ones, and long to flee misery and skip death. It is a weakening and discoloring idea, that rustic people knew God personally once upon a time-- or even knew selflessness or courage or literature-- but that it is too late for us. In fact, the absolute is available to everyone in every age. There never was a more holy age than ours, and never a less."
Author: Annie Dillard
8. "-¿Alguien puede decirme qué diantre es eso?Y señaló hacia el valle con un dedo imperioso e imperial, el que había utilizado para señalar las Pirámides cuando aquello de los cuarenta siglos o -en otro orden de cosas- el catre a María Valewska."
Author: Arturo Pérez Reverte
9. "She was made up of more, too. She was the books she read in the library. She was the flower in the brown bowl. Part of her life was made from the tree growing rankly in the yard. She was the bitter quarrels she had with her brother whom she loved dearly. She was Katie's secret, despairing weeping. She was the shame of her father stumbling home drunk. She was all of these things and of something more...It was what God or whatever is His equivalent puts into each soul that is given life - the one different thing such as that which makes no two fingerprints on the face of the earth alike."
Author: Betty Smith
10. "Hate is nothing when weighed against survival. (Valentine)"
Author: Cassandra Clare
11. "She broke up with you again, didn't she?"He flopped back in his chair, lanky legs hooked at the ankles. "She also reserved a tuxedo for me with a cummerbund matched to her formal dress. I sense ambivalence.""Very perceptive."
Author: Cecily White
12. "I should only have been as lucky as Valentino, in the movies - I didn't have to be a gigolo. In real life."
Author: Cesar Romero
13. "Although awareness of cancer's prevalence in the United States improves and medical advances in the field abound, pancreatic cancer has largely been absent from the list of major success stories."
Author: Chris Van Hollen
14. "F. Scott Fitzgerald believed inserting exclamation points was the literary equivalent of an author laughing at his own jokes, but that's not the case in the modern age; now, the exclamation point signifies creative confusion. All it illustrates is that even the writer can't tell if what they're creating is supposed to be meaningful, frivolous, or cruel. It's an attempt to insert humor where none exists, on the off chance that a potential reader will only be pleased if they suspect they're being entertained. Of course, the reader isn't really sure, either. They just want to know when they're supposed to pretend to be amused."
Author: Chuck Klosterman
15. "I love to do glamorous things, like wear Valentino."
Author: Debra Messing
16. "Hay criminales que proclaman tan campantes ‘la maté porque era mía', así no más, como si fuera cosa de sentido común y justo de toda justicia y derecho de propiedad privada, que hace al hombre dueño de la mujer. Pero ninguno, ninguno, ni el más macho de los supermachos tiene la valentía de confesar ‘la maté por miedo', porque al fin y al cabo el miedo de la mujer a la violencia del hombre es el espejo del miedo del hombre a la mujer sin miedo."
Author: Eduardo Galeano
17. "Valentine WeatherKiss me with rain on your eyelashes,come on, let us sway together,under the trees, and to hell with thunder."
Author: Edwin Morgan
18. "The more ambivalent you are and the more uncertain you are, then you can get something that you cannot anticipate."
Author: Elia Kazan
19. "I don't hate anyone. I dislike. But my dislike is the equivalent of anyone else's hate."
Author: Elsa Maxwell
20. "It's simple guy logic: If a woman is angry? It means she cares. If you're in a relationship and a chick can't even be bothered to yell at you? You're screwed. Indifference is a woman's kiss of death. It's the equivalent of a man not interested in sex. In either case—it's over. You're done."
Author: Emma Chase
21. "Why was it not good for man to be alone? If it were only man's loneliness with which God was concerned, he might have provided other companionship. But he provided woman, for she was to be man's helpmeet. She was to act in partnership with him. . . . The Lord God gave woman a different personality and temperament than man. . . .In the world today there are observed strenuous efforts to distort and desecrate this divine pattern. . . . The conventional wisdom of the day would have you be equal with men. We say, we would not have you descend to that level. More often than not the demand for equality means the destruction of the inspired arrangement that God has decreed for man, woman, and the family. Equality should not be confused with equivalence."
Author: Ezra Taft Benson
22. "The gold of a lowland lord is as worthless as a half man's promises'' Gunthor said.''Half a man I may be'' Tyrion said. ''Yet I have the courage to face my enemies. What do the Stone Crows do, but hide behind rocks and shiver with fear as the knights of the Vale ride by?"
Author: George R.R. Martin
23. "Se se adora o deus compósito dos processos históricos, está-se condenado a negar a Shakespeare sua palpável supremacia estética, a realmente gritante originalidade de suas peças. A originalidade torna-se um equivalente literário de termos como empreendimento individual, autossuficiência e competição, que não fazem a felicidade dos corações feministas, afrocentristas, marxistas, neo-historicistas foucaultianos ou desconstrutores - de todos que descrevi como membros da Escola do Ressentimento."
Author: Harold Bloom
24. "Aveva trattato ogni genere di merce - stoffe, spezie, cereali, animali, navi, oro e argento - e conosceva il prezzo degli schiavi, ma quanto valeva un amico?"
Author: Ildefonso Falcones
25. "The very definition of the real becomes: that of which it is possible to give an equivalent reproduction. The real is not only what can be reproduced, but that which is always already reproduced. The hyper real."
Author: Jean Baudrillard
26. "Will you ever forgive me? " I shot back, leveling my gaze directly into his eyes.He stared into them for a few moments and then got up silently and headed for the door. He didn't turn around when he reached it. Just grabbed the doorknob and held it."No," he said, without facing me. "Maybe it makes me a bad parent, but I don't know if I can. No matter what the police found, you were involved in that shooting, Valerie. You wrote those names on that list. You wrote my name on that list. You had a good life here. You may not have pulled the trigger, but you helped cause the tragedy."Hate List"
Author: Jennifer Brown
27. "A vida podia ser apenas estar sentado na erva, segurar um malmequer e não lhe arrancar as pétalas, por serem já sabidas as respostas, ou por serem estas de tão pouca importância que descobri-las não valeria a vida de uma flor."

32. "It is ironic that we have more technology to make our lives more efficient, ostensibly reducing our workload, and we work harder than we ever have. I was dragged into email kicking and screaming. On most issues technological I'm wrong, but I think I had this one nailed. Given the way emails come like baseballs from a machine in a batting cage, I spend more time responding to them than I spent manually opening and responding to letters. My friends from England write beautiful letters: bonded correspondence paper, elegant penmanship, and prose that reads like poetry. I shoot back an email. To the equivalent of a well-prepared feast I reciprocate with the equivalent of a bag of chips."
Author: Michael S. Horton
33. "I continued to wonder what exactly I had done to deserve a woman like Valerie. Nothing, probably. I observe the world as it unfurls, I thought; proceeding empirically, in good faith, I observe it; I can do no more than observe."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
34. "Comprenez-moi. Le misogyne ne méprise pas les femmes. Le misogyne n'aime pas la féminité. Les hommes se répartissent depuis toujours en deux grandes catégories. Les adorateurs des femmes, autrement dit les poètes, et les misogynes ou, pour mieux dire, les gynophobes. Les adorateurs ou poètes vénèrent les valeurs féminines traditionelles comme le sentiment, le foyer, la maternité, la fécondité, les éclairs sacrés de l'hysterie, et la voix divine de la nature en nous, tandis qu'aux misogynes ou gynophobes ces valeurs inspirent un léger effroi. Chez la femme, l'adorateur vénère la féminité, alors que le misogyne donne toujours la préférence à la femme sur la féminité. N'oubliez pas une chose: une femme ne peut être vraiment heureuse qu'avec un misogyne."
Author: Milan Kundera
35. "Personne ne semble avoir songé au fait que si l'existence est absurde, y réussir brillamment n'a pas plus de valeur qu'y échouer."
Author: Muriel Barbery

Author: Nikolai Gogol

Author: Orson Scott Card
39. "Si no puedes salvar tu propia vida ¿vale la pena salvarla?"
Author: Rainbow Rowell
40. "[Le] jour qui vient de passer, tout débordant d'activité qu'il ait été, ne manque jamais, à la seconde ou enfin le sommeil va m'assommer, de me sembler suspect, dénué de toute valeur, de me faire trembler de peur. C'est toujours avec angoisse que j'anticipe le retour de la nuit, le moment de la grande rencontre avec moi-même, le moment d'ajouter un autre zéro au total du passé, le moment de me rapprocher de tout un pas de la frontière au-dela de laquelle il n'y a plus rien, même plus de futur."
Author: Réjean Ducharme
41. "I got into medical school at the University of California in San Francisco and did well. A lot of smart kids in medical school, and believe me, I wasn't not nearly the smartest one, but I was the most focused and the happiest kid in medical school. In 1979, I graduated as the valedictorian and was honored with the Gold Cane Award."
Author: Richard Carmona
42. "Othalas: Words. What are they but shadows on a page or howling on the wind? They are as ever-changing as the mists below us and it is just as easy to lose sense of yourself among them. I am older than most sorcerers so what I know may, indeed, be close to the truth. Magic, wyrd, words, dreams, they all come from the spirit. Within them lie both power and peril. For to misuse any is to warp your sense of self. To lie in words, or in magic, or in dreams -- that is how you become lost. The lights you see, they were lost long before they came to the Vale."
Author: Robert Fanney
43. "[Los alumnos de Almafitano aprendieron...]Que la principal enseñanza de la literatura era la valentía, una valentía rara, como un pozo de piedra en medio de un paisaje lacustre, una valentía semejante a un torbellino y a un espejo. Que no era más cómodo leer que escribir. Que leyendo se aprendía a dudar y a recordar. Que la memoria era el amor."
Author: Roberto Bolaño

Author: Sarah J. Maas

46. "El pensamiento productivista, auspiciado por Occidente, ha arrastrado al mundo a una crisis de la que hay que salir a través de una ruptura radical con la escapada hacia delante del "siempre más", en el dominio financiero pero también en el de las ciencias y las técnicas. Ya es hora de que la preocupación por la ética, por la justicia, por el equilibrio duradero prevalezcan."
Author: Stéphane Hessel
47. "Se no universo houvesse caos e não ordem, acabarias por achar no caos uma ordem. Se o homem em vez de ser homem que é, tivesse o corpo de gorila, acabarias por achar nele o que fosse belo e feio. Deus põe mas tu dispões. O que te valeu a ti, para não apanhares uma paixão tremenda por uma sapa, foi o homem não ter nascido com o feitio do sapo."
Author: Vergílio Ferreira
48. "There were some people you had to stay away from, people who poisoned everything in reach. Then there were people you wanted to stick with, the ones with silver tongues and golden touched. And then, there were people you stood beside, because it meant you weren't in their way. And whoever Victor Vale was, whatever he was, and whatever he was up to, the only thing Mitch knew was that he did not want to be in his way."
Author: Victoria Schwab
49. "Any guy hates Valentine's Day. Even if you're in love, you can't win on Valentine's Day. If you're married, you can't win on Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is like the thing you want to avoid at all costs."
Author: Vince Vaughn
50. "I can't say I'm particularly happy about all the spam and the viruses and the equivalent that we see on the Net, but I think technology can deal with many of the problems that we're now seeing, whether it's filtering or whatever, and laws may help a lot."
