Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
3. "Ollowains Blick wanderte über die Waldterrassen. Er könnte hier Stunden sitzen, ohne des Schauens müde zu werden. Der Anblick der Natur vermag die Seele zu heilen, hatte ihm seine Mutter vor Jahrhunderten erzählt. Damals war er zu ungeduldig gewesen, um sich dieser Wahrheit zu öffnen. Und er war auch zu jung gewesen, um an einer verletzten Seele zu leiden. Erst die Zeit hatte ihn von der Weisheit in den Worten seiner Mutter überzeugt."
Author: Bernhard Hennen
4. "Er erlebte die Stadt wie einen Wald. Er dachte: Sie liegt nicht auf einer Insel, sie ist die Insel. Sie ist nicht in eine Landschaft gebaut, sondern ist die Landschaft. Eine Landschaft von steinerner Vegetation, die den Menschen nicht gehört, in die sie erst Schneisen schlagen und in der sie ihre Wohnungen erst begründen müssen. Die Schneisen und Wohnorte können von der Vegetation auch wieder eingeholt und überwuchert werden. Manchmal stieß er auf abgerissene Häusergevierte, Trümmergrundstücke, Fassaden mit leeren oder vermauerten Türen und Fenstern – wie vom Krieg verwüstet, und weil es keinen Krieg gegeben hatte, wie von der Natur ergriffen. diesmal nicht der wuchernden des Waldes, sondern der wütenden eines Erdbebens. Und wie wachsende Kristalle die hochstrebenden neuen Bauten."
Author: Bernhard Schlink

And when we're alone…" His fingers touched her chin lightly."When we're alone," he whispered, "look up."He could have tilted her chin, forcing her to do so. But his forefinger remained warm and steady on her face. He waited, and in the end, Minnie couldn't help herself. She looked up."
Author: Courtney Milan

8. "To some perhaps it may appear a little strained to place this last-mentioned form of attachment on a level of importance with the others, and such persons may be inclined to deny to the homogenic [...] or homosexual love that intense, that penetrating, and at times overmastering character which would entitle it to rank as a great human passion. But in truth this view, when entertained, arises from a want of acquaintance with the actual facts."
Author: Edward Carpenter
9. "Man represses the irrational passions of destructiveness, hate, envy, revenge; he worships power, money, the sovereign state, the nation; while he pays lip service to the teachings of the great spiritual leaders of the human race, those of Buddha, the prophets, Socrates, Jesus, Mohammed—he has transformed these teachings into a jungle of superstition and idol-worship. How can mankind save itself from destroying itself by this discrepancy between intellectual-technical overmaturity and emotional backwardness?"
Author: Erich Fromm
10. "Julia used to say, 'Poor Sebastian. It's something chemical in him.' That was the cant phrase of the time, derived from heaven knows what misconception of popular science.

I do not believe there was anything chemical in my friend."
Author: Evelyn Waugh

Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
14. "Men arbeidt nog, want arbeid is een vermaak. Maar men zorgt, dat het vermaak niet aangrijpt. Men wordt niet meer arm en rijk: beide zijn te bezwaarlijk. Wie wil nog regeren? Wie gehoorzamen? Beide zijn te bezwaarlijk. Geen herder en ene kudde! Ieder wil hetzelfde, ieder is gelijk: wie anders voelt, gaat vrijwillig in het gekkenhuis."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Er ist nicht gezwungen, aus den Ereignissen, die der Tag ihm zuträgt, induktive Schlüsse zu ziehen, um danach sein Verhalten einzurichten, er darf in sein eigenes Denken eingesponnen bleiben, - eingesponnen in die Autonomie seines Wissens, darf er deduktiv, darf er theologisch denken. Wer vermag fröhlicher zu sein als der, der seinen Glauben denken darf!"
Author: Hermann Broch

Neither of us picked it up."I mean, I know we have dinner a lot when we're working. I meant out someplace. Together." Braverman picked up the Gulden's bottle, handed it to me. He coughed. "A date."I said, "What is this, an epidemic?"I backed out the door and left Braverman in the supply closet.I don't get asked out too much either."

23. "Das Rauchen macht dumm, es macht unfähig zum Denken und Dichten. Es ist auch nur für Müßiggänger, für Menschen, die Langeweile haben.[...] Aber es liegt auch im Rauchen eine arge Unhöflichkeit, eine impertinente Ungeselligkeit. Die Raucher verpesten die Luft weit und breit und ersticken jeden honetten Menschen, der nicht zu seiner Verteidigung zu rauchen vermag. Wer ist denn imstande, in das Zimmer eines Rauchers zu treten, ohne Übelkeit zu empfinden? Wer kann darin verweilen, ohne umzukommen?"
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
25. "Terwijl hij wachtte tot het trillen minder werd - terwijl hij machteloos keek naar de rukkerige, maaiende bewegingen, alsof hij in een kinderkamer vol krijsende, zich misdragende peuters zat en zijn stem kwijt was en ze niet tot bedaren kon brengen - vermaakte Alfred zich ermee zich voor te stellen dat hij zijn hand afhakte met een bijl: dat hij het ongehoorzame lichaamsdeel duidelijk maakte hoe vreselijk boos hij erop was, hoe weinig hij ervan hield als het hem niet wilde gehoorzamen. Het leidde tot een soort extase als hij zich voorstelde hoe het blad van de bijl de eerste keer in het bot en de spieren van zijn ergerlijke pols hakte; maar tegelijk met de extase, ermee samengaand, was er een neiging om te wenen om die hand die van hem was, waar hij van hield en die hij het beste toewenste, die hij zijn hele leven al kende.61"
Author: Jonathan Franzen
26. "[D]as Denken, letztendlich [...], ist wie ein um sich selbst gewickeltes Fadenknäuel, schlaff an gewissen Stellen, und bis zum Ersticken oder zum Abwürgen straff an anderen, es befindet sich hier drin, im Kopf, unmöglich aber, es in seiner ganzen Ausdehnung zu erfahren, da müsste man es schon ausrollen, ausspannen und schließlich messen, doch das, so sehr einer es versucht oder zu versuchen vorgibt, dies allein vermag man nicht, da muss irgendwer eines Tages kommen und bestimmen, an welcher Stelle es die Schnur, die den Menschen mit seinem Nabel verbindet, zu kappen gilt, um das Denken an seinen Ursprung zu binden."
Author: José Saramago

29. "-"Say no more," Leif interrupted. "I understand. I will simply have to kill them all myself."-"There he goes again. I'm telling you, Danny Elfman would love to get hold of those lines."-"Not John Williams?"-"If you've got some hopelessly overmatched heroes fighting evil and some Imperial types marching, John Williams is your guy. You need a song to make people reach for a box of Kleenex, talk to Randy Newman. But if you want creepy atmospherics and spine-shivering chords to back up your casual death threats, you gotta bring in Danny Elfman."
Author: Kevin Hearne
30. "Behind the sullen girl sat Denis Cooverman, sweating: along the cap of his mortarboard, trickling behind his ears and rippling down his forehead; around his nostrils and in that groove below his nose (which Denis would be quick to identify as the philtrum...); from his palms, behind his knees, inside his elbows, between his toes and from many locations not typically associated with perpiratory activity; squirting out his nipples, spewing from his navel, coursing between his buttocks and forming a tiny lake that gently lapped at his genitals; from under his arms, naturally, in two varietals--hot and sticky,a nd cold and terrified."
Author: Larry Doyle

34. "Wisdom is always an overmatch for strength."
Author: Phil Jackson
35. "In his self-serving view of events, Lee believed that he had performed a prodigious feat, rescuing his overmatched army from danger and organizing an orderly retreat. "'The American troops would not stand the British bayonets," he insisted to Washington. "You damned poltroon," Washington rejoined, "you never tried them!" Always reluctant to resort to profanities, the chaste Washington cursed at Lee "till the leaves shook on the tree," recalled General Scott. "Charming! Delightful! Never have I enjoyed such swearing before or since."
Author: Ron Chernow
36. "Men know that women are an overmatch for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or the most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves."
Author: Samuel Johnson
37. "After fifteen years of making my living in stand-up, The Sarah Silverman Program has been a lesson in collaboration. Rob, Dan, and I live by the mantra "Whoever is most passionate." If I was mentoring someone, that's the Shandling-esque advice I would proffer: Find people you really respect and trust, and then at each decision, heed the most passionate voice. I love that because it eliminates nearly all struggle. And when you're doing a show that's mostly about farts, penises, and vaginas, there should be as little struggle as possible."
Author: Sarah Silverman

40. "Writing is a habit, an addiction, as powerful and overmastering an urge as putting a bottle to your lips or a spike in your arm. Call it the impulse to make something out of nothing, call it an obsessive-compulsive disorder, call it logorrhea. Have you been in a bookstore lately? Have you seen what these authors are doing, the mountainous piles of the flakes of themselves they're leaving behind, like the neatly labeled jars of shit, piss, and toenail clippings one of John Barth's characters bequeathed to his wife, the ultimate expression of his deepest self?"
Author: T.C. Boyle
41. "Denn der Mensch liebt und ehrt den Menschen , solange er ihn nicht zu beurteilen vermag, und die Sehnsucht ist ein Erzeunis mangelhafter Erkenntnis."
Author: Thomas Mann
42. "Glück des Schriftstellers ist der Gedanke, der ganz Gefühl, ist das Gefühl, das ganz Gedanke zu werden vermag."
Author: Thomas Mann

Author: Tom Robbins
44. "LEONATOWell, niece, I hope to see you one day fitted with a husband.BEATRICENot till God make men of some other metal than earth.

No, uncle, I'll none: Adam's sons are my brethren; and, truly, I hold it a sin to match in my kindred."
Author: William Shakespeare
