I used to see them from inside cars and think they brought it on themselves, and they probably did but now it didn't make a difference. I went over to the fire and warmed my hands with the group. I looked at their faces: idiots, criminals, retards, schizophrenics, paranoids, rejects, fuck-ups, broken-down failures. Alone, once children, never asked to be put on this earth, they ended up as jurors. Their lives were the verdict: the system, the man, something had failed."
Author: Arthur Nersesian

Author: Dorothy L. Sayers

Mesela siz insani eski aliskanliklarindan vazgeçirmek, iradesini bilimle, sagduyuyla bagdasacak tarzda düzenlemek istiyorsunuz. Fakat insanlarda böyle bir islahin sadece mümkün degil, ayni zamanda mecburi oldugunu nereden biliyorsunuz? Insan iradesinin bu derece islaha muhtaç oldugu hükmünü neye göre veriyorsunuz? Kisacasi, böyle bir islahin insana gerçekten fayda saglayacagina nasil karar verdiniz? Açik konusalim; aklin ve aritmetigin destekledigi gerçek, normal çikarlara karsi gelmemenin insan için daima faydali olduguna, hepimiz için bir kanun sayilacagina neden bu kadar kuvvetle eminsiniz? Bu simdilik bir tahminden ibarettir."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
20. "Ik zie de Bibliothecaresse dagelijks, maar de leegte in mij blijft. Ik lees de oude dromen in de Bibliotheek. Zij zit naast me. We eten samen. Ik breng haar naar huis. We praten over van alles. Mijn droefheid schijnt alleen maar erger te worden, zich te verdiepen, hoe onredelijk dat ook is. Het gevoel van verlies wordt steeds sterker, elke keer als we elkaar ontmoeten. Het is een put die nooit gedempt zal worden. Het is een donker, ondraaglijk somber gevoel."
Author: Haruki Murakami

Author: Honoré De Balzac
22. "Ik vind het doodzonde van mijn tijd om me te verdiepen in de organische geesteswoekeringen van een dichter die me niets beters te melden heeft dan het niets, de leegte, het onverstaanbare. Het onverstaanbare heb ik thuis ook, als ik door de WC-deur heen probeer te praten met mijn vriendin. Het onzegbare, dat roeren wij thuis door de muesli. Ik wil poëzie die me meeneemt naar een wereld die ik nog niet ken, naar een inzicht dat ik nog niet had, naar een uitzicht dat ik nergens anders had kunnen vinden. Ik wil een gedicht dat zo goed is, dat ik bijna vergeet dat het, zoals elk gedicht, een taalbouwsel is – een volmaakt bedrieglijke travestie waar het grote niets doorheen schijnt, een van zijn eigen leugenachtigheid getuigende leugen van inkt. Ik wil een gedicht als een huis, dat me op één steen na laat geloven dat ik er werkelijk in zou kunnen wonen."
Author: Ingmar Heytze
23. "He believed that every individual was responsible for his conduct on earth, that there was a judge within. Could even a blazingly Christ inflict greater retribution?

Author: Irving Stone
24. "Entrai a Ipazia un mattino, un giardino di magnolie si specchiava su lagune azzurre, io andavo tra le siepi sicuro di scoprire belle e giovani dame fare il bagno: ma in fondo all'acqua i granchi mordevano gli occhi delle suicide con la pietra legata al collo e i capelli verdi d'alghe."
Author: Italo Calvino
25. "My worst fears from jury selection manifested themselves in the verdict. This jury needed someone to tell them exactly how Caylee died. Piecing it together from circumstantial evidence was not good enough for them. They wanted the answers on a silver platter, but we didn't have the evidence to serve it that way. It's not just the verdict that tells me this, but also the manner in which it was reached. The fact that they didn't request any materials to review. The fact that they didn't have any questions for the judge. If the statements that the foreman of the jury made to the media are true, ten of these twelve jurors felt that ninety minutes of deliberation was sufficient to fully weigh, consider, and reject four weeks' worth of testimony that we on the prosecution used to establish that this was first-degree murder. The rest of the thirteen hours of deliberation had been spent trying to convince the two holdout jurors of the decision."
Author: Jeff Ashton
26. "Benle mutlulugum arasina saplanan mesafe dünya degildi, bombalar ve yanan binalar degildi, bendim, düsünmemdi, bir seyleri asla koyuveremiyor olmanin kanseriydi. Cehalet tam mutluluk mudur, bilmiyorum ama düsünmek çok aci verici ve söyleyin bana, düsünmek bana ne verdi, beni hangi üstün mertebeye getirdi? Düsünüyor, düsünüyor ve düsünüyorum, kendimi milyon kere mutlulugun disinda düsündüm ama bir kere bile içinde düsünmedim. Çikarabildigim son sözcük "ben"di ki feci bir seydi..."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
27. "Doctor, I appreciate your diagnosis, but I will not accept your verdict"
Author: Joseph McClendon III
28. "In the letter he left for the coroner he had explained his reasoning (for suicide): that life is a gift bestowed without anyone asking for it; that the thinking person has a philosophical duty to examine both the nature of life and the conditions it comes with; and that if this person decides to renounce the gift no one asks for, it is the moral and human duty to act on the consequences of that decision. ... Alex showed me a clipping from the Cambridge Evening News. 'Tragic Death of "Promising" Young Man.' ... The verdict of the coroner's inquest had been that Adrian Flinn (22) had killed himself 'while the balance of his mind was disturbed.' ... The law, and society, and religion all said it was impossible to be sane, healthy, and kill yourself. Perhaps those authorities feared that the suicide's reasoning might impugn the nature and value of life as organised by the state which paid the coroner?"
Author: Julian Barnes
29. "Böyle iste, diyordu. Dostumuz Konstantin Dmitriç ne yetenekli bir gençti. Oysa simdi nerede o eski Konstantin Dmitriç! O zamanlar bilimi de severdi. Üniversiteden çiktiginda insanlara özgü düsünceleri vardi. Simdi ise yeteneklerinin yarisi kendi kendini aldatmaya, öteki yarisi da bu aldatisi hakli göstermeye yönelmis durumda. iletisim yayinlari. syf :441."
Author: Leo Tolstoy

Author: Lorrie Moore
33. "We have accepted the principle of democracy and we are committed to respect the popular verdict and the result of that national consultation."
Author: Mahmoud Abbas
34. "On Wednesday, July 19, the Council, having gleaned and discerned, released its official verdict: the fall of the tile bearing the letter "Z" constitutes the terrestrial manifestation of an empyrean Nollopian desire, that desire most surely being that the letter "Z" should be utterly excised--fully extirpated--absolutively heave-ho'ed from our communal vocabulary!"
Author: Mark Dunn
35. "Être élu est une notion théologique qui veut dire : sans aucun mérite, par un verdict surnaturel, par une volonté libre, sinon capricieuse, de Dieu, on est choisi pour quelque chose d'exceptionnel et d'extraordinaire. C'est dans cette conviction que les saints ont puisé la force de supporter les plus atroces supplices. Les notions théologiques se reflètent, telle leur propre parodie, dans la trivialité de nos vies ; chacun de nous souffre (plus ou moins) de la bassesse de sa vie trop ordinaire et désire y échapper et s'élever. Chacun de nous a connu l'illusion (plus ou moins forte) d'être digne de cette élévation, d'être prédestiné et choisi pour elle. (chapitre 15)"
Author: Milan Kundera
36. "Some of them she had seen for four years without exchanging a word. But that was how high school worked; it issued a verdict and you behaved accordingly."

38. "There are no verdicts to childhood, only consequences, and the bright freight of memory."
Author: Pat Conroy
39. "Izah mükemmeldi. Gülümsedim. Dün gece bu nüansi niçin kaçirmistim? Içimdeki muhalefetin oyunudur bu. Kalbe karsi bu muhalefetin akildan veya gururdan geldigi sanilir. Bence bu, kalbin kendi kendisine karsi müdafaasidir. Sevgilide kaybolmamak için nefret sebepleri arar, bulamazsa yaratir. Iste böyle, kendi kendini aldattigini anlayinca da utanir ve ona daha çok baglanir. Kendi yalanlarini kabul etmeyen kalbin kendine verdigi ceza."
Author: Peyami Safa
40. "Wer es zulässt, dass man ihn beleidigt, verdient es."
Author: Pierre Corneille
41. "A boy is in the parlour what the pit is in the playhouse; independent, irresponsible, looking out from his corner on such people and facts as pass by, he tries and sentences them on their merits, in the swift, summary way of boys, as good, bad, interesting, silly, eloquent, troublesome. He cumbers himself never about consequences, about interests: he gives an independent, genuine verdict. You must court him: he does not court you. But the man is, as it were, clapped into jail by his consciousness. As soon as he has once acted or spoken with eclat, he is a committed person, watched by the sympathy or the hatred of hundreds, whose affections must now enter into his account. There is no Lethe for this. Ah, that he could pass again into his neutrality! Who can thus avoid all pledges, and having observed, observe again from the same unaffected, unbiased, unbribable, unaffrighted innocence, must always be formidable."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
42. "Aç olmadigim halde menüye baktim. bir menüye bakmayali yillar olmustu. Menü bana günaydin dedi, ben de ona günaydin diyerek karsilik verdim. Hayatimizi menülerle konusarak geçirebiliriz dogrusu."
Author: Richard Brautigan
43. "The first chap we said was loafing, until he died. That's nearly always the verdict on a sailing ship, anyway. A man is invariably 'mouching' until he dies, and then we say, "Oh, he must have been bad after all." --Charles Lightoller"
Author: Richard Davenport Hines
44. "It is not comfortable or easy to sit in a principal's office, waiting for a verdict."
Author: Susan Patron
45. "Iyileseceksin," diye söz verdim ona. "Iyilesince de sana yaptigim seçimi gösterecegim. Bedeninin her bir santimini dudaklarimla ezberleyecegim."
Author: Tahereh Mafi
46. "Auf Goethe, den philosophischen Kleinbürger, auf Goethe, den Lebensopportunisten, von welchem Maria immer gesagt hat, daß er die Welt nicht auf den Kopf gestellt, sondern den Kopf in den deutschen Schrebergarten gesteckt hat. Auf Goethe, den Gesteinsnummerierer, den Sterndeuter, den philosophischen Daumenlutscher der Deutschen, der ihre Seelenmarmelade abgefüllt hat in ihre Haushaltsgläser für alle Fälle und alle Zwecke. Auf Goethe, der den Deutschen die Binsenwahrheiten gebündelt und als allerhöchstes Geistesgut durch Cotta hat verkaufen und durch die Oberlehrer in ihre Ohren hat schmieren lassen, bis zur endgültigen Verstopfung. [...] Allen verdirbt er den Magen, sagte ich, nur den Deutschen nicht, sie glauben an Goethe wie an ein Weltwunder. Dabei ist dieses Weltwunder nur ein philiströser philosophischer Schrebergärtner. [...] In nichts hat Goethe das Höchste geleistet, sagte ich, in allem nur das Mittelmaß zustande gebracht."
Author: Thomas Bernhard
47. "Vi har noen rettigheter, plikter og verdier vi tar som en selvfølge. Men også selvfølgelighetene må begrunnes og forsvares. De oppleste og vedtatte sannhetene har godt av å bli utfordret, ikke minst for å gi oss anledning til å lese dem opp og vedta dem på nytt."
Author: Trine Skei Grande
48. "I ask, if I shall never see you again and fix my eyes on that solidity, what form will our communication take? You have gone across the court, further and further, drawing finer and finer the thread between us. But you exist somewhere. Something of you remains. A judge. That is, if I discover a new vein in myself I shall submit it to you privately. I shall ask, What is your verdict? You shall remain the arbiter. But for how long? Things will become too difficult to explain: there will be new things; already my son."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "As readers, we remain in the nursery stage so long as we cannot distinguish between taste and judgment, so long, that is, as the only possible verdicts we can pass on a book are two: this I like; this I don't like.For an adult reader, the possible verdicts are five: I can see this is good and I like it; I can see this is good but I don't like it; I can see this is good and, though at present I don't like it, I believe that with perseverance I shall come to like it; I can see that this is trash but I like it; I can see that this is trash and I don't like it."
Author: W.H. Auden
50. "And how about the "Daily Odes to the Benefactor"? Who can read them without bowing his head reverently before the selfless labor of this Number of Numbers? Or the terrible blood-red beauty of the "Flowers of Judicial Verdicts"? Or the immortal tragedy, "Lat for Work"? Or the bedside book of "Stanzas on Sexual Hygiene"?"
