Sembra orgoglioso di sé.Lo fisso. Ci metto un po' a riconoscere che è vero."
Author: Diego De Silva
11. "Modernity has abandoned the household gods, not because we have rejected the idolatry as all Christians must, but because we have rejected the very idea of the household. We no longer worship Vesta, but have only turned away from her because our homes no longer have any hearths. Now we worship Motor Oil. If our rejection of the old idols were Christian repentance, God would bless it, but what is actually happening is that we are sinking below the level of the ancient pagans. But when we turn to Christ in truth, we find that He has ordained every day of marriage as a proclamation of his covenant with the church. A man who embraces what is expected of him will find a good wife and a welcoming hearth. He who loves his wife loves himself."
Author: Douglas Wilson

They speak to us, consult with us, and join with us in a living and intense intimacy."
Author: Francesco Petrarca
15. "It's almost hard to imagine anything more undemocratic than the view that political officials should not debate American wars in public, but only express concerns 'privately with the administration.' That's just a small sliver of Johnson's radicalism: replacing Feingold in the Senate with Ron Johnson would be a civil liberties travesty analogous to the economic travesty from, say, replacing Bernie Sanders with Lloyd Blankfein."
Author: Glenn Greenwald

I'm fine. I really am fine: I just want to go read for a while."

22. "We should invest in kids like these," we're told, "because it will be more expensive not to." Why do our natural compassion and religious inclinations need to find a surrogate in dollar savings to be voiced or acted on? Why not give these kids the best we have because we are a wealthy nation and they are children and deserve to have some fun while they are still less than four feet high?"
Author: Jonathan Kozol
23. "Es como la elegancia, mi María, que está en el buen gusto, y no en el costo. La elegancia del vestido,-la grande y verdadera,-está en la altivez y fortaleza del alma. Un alma honrada, inteligente y libre, da al cuerpo más elegancia, y más poderío a la mujer, que las modas más ricas de las tiendas. Mucha tienda, poca alma. Quien tiene mucho adentro, necesita poco afuera. Quien lleva mucho afuera, tiene poco adentro, y quiere disimular lo poco. Quien siente su belleza, la belleza interior, no busca afuera belleza prestada: se sabe hermosa, y la belleza hecha echa luz."
Author: José Martí

I had to believe that he cared, I had to believe in him, or I would go crazy."
Author: Julie Kagawa
26. "Det første som slår en reisetrett fremmed imøte og gjør ham fortumlet i Amerika, det er naturligvis den store støy, rastløsheten, det jagende liv i gatene, den urolige, forvovne ilferdighet hvormed det fares frem på alle områder. Kommer han iland i New York i sommertiden, vil det dessuten gjøre ham litt forbauset å se herrer uten frakk, uten vest, blott med bukseselene over skjorten, ta en spasertur henad gatene med sin silkekledde dame under armen. Det gjør straks et fremmed inntrykk, et fritt inntrykk; det er fart i den sort etikette."
Author: Knut Hamsun

Author: Kytka Hilmar Jezek
28. "Things change after people are married," she finally said, talking more to herself than to him. "People change.""Not usually for the better.""How would you know? Are you an authority on marriage...or on me, for that matter? You act just like Daniel, as if you know what's best for me. Well, maybe I should start deciding what I want!"His eyes gleamed like a cat's. "Maybe you should. What do you want?"She wanted Daniel.But she wanted Daniel to be different.

Author: Lisa Kleypas

Author: Mark Cuban
31. "I take my metal canister of tea off the shelf. It is my own mixture of dried lavender blossoms and lemon balm, harvested from my garden and hung in the storeroom to dry. Weed helped me hang these stalks, I think. His hands touched these tender leaves, just as they touch me."
Author: Maryrose Wood
32. "To beat the market you'll have to invest serious bucks to dig up information no one else has yet."
Author: Merton Miller
33. "When a livestock farmer is willing to "practice complexity"—to choreograph the symbiosis of several different animals, each of which has been allowed to behave and eat as it evolved to—he will find he has little need for machinery, fertilizer, and, most strikingly, chemicals. He finds he has no sanitation problem or any of the diseases that result from raising a single animal in a crowded monoculture and then feeding it things it wasn't designed to eat. This is perhaps the greatest efficiency of a farm treated as a biological system: health."
Author: Michael Pollan
34. "When The Journal of Words compiled its list of the one hundred best novels written in English, do you know that Pride and Prejudice was number twelve?" She stopped pacing and glared at Jane. "And do you know where Jane Eyre was?" she asked. She looked at the four of them in turn, but nobody answered her. "Number fifty-two!" she shrieked. "Fifty-two! Below that pornographic travesty Lolita!" She spat the title as if it were poison. "Below Huckleberry Finn! Below Ulysses. Have you ever tried to read Ulysses? Have you ever finished it? No, you haven't. No one has. They just carry it around and lie about having read it."
Author: Michael Thomas Ford
35. "Crime shows are really popular, in general, but usually, at the end of every episode, you have to let go of the people that you've invested in and then, the next week, get somebody else."
Author: Mireille Enos
36. "Oh, glorious Art!" thus mused the enthusiastic painter, as he trod the street. "Thou art the image of the Creator's own. The innumerable forms that wander in nothingness start into being at thy beck. The dead live again. Thou recallest them to their old scenes, and givest their gray shadows the lustre of a better life, at once earthly and immortal. Thou snatchest back the fleeing moments of History. With thee, there is no Past; for at thy touch, all that is great becomes forever present; and illustrious men live through long ages in the visible performance of the very deeds which made them what they are."
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
37. "Spune-mi, daca te-as prinde-ntr-o zisi ti-as saruta talpa piciorului,nu-i asa ca ai schiopata putin, dupa aceea,de teama sa nu-mi strivesti sarutul?"
Author: Nichita Stănescu
38. "But what else can we do when we're so weak? We invest hours each day, months each year, years each lifetime in something over which we have no control; it is any wonder then, that we are reduced to creating ingenious but bizarre liturgies designed to give us the illusion that we are powerful after all, just as every other primitive community has done when faced with a deep and apparently impenetrable mystery?"
Author: Nick Hornby
39. "El propietario de una tienda, al que le gustaba hablar de manera más lacónica, le explicó que el cliente no compra en realidad una prenda de vestir, sino una fantasía. Que lo que de veras quería comprar era el sueño de poder ser como los "otros" que vestían aquella ropa."

45. "For us hunting wasn't a sport. It was a way to be intimate with nature, that intimacy providing us with wild unprocessed food free from pesticides and hormones and with the bonus of having been produced without the addition of great quantities of fossil fuel. In addition, hunting provided us with an ever scarcer relationship in a world of cities, factory farms, and agribusiness, direct responsibility for taking the lives that sustained us. Lives that even vegans indirectly take as the growing and harvesting of organic produce kills deer, birds, snakes, rodents, and insects. We lived close to the animals we ate. We knew their habits and that knowledge deepened our thanks to them and the land that made them."
Author: Ted Kerasote

Author: Vicente Blasco Ibáñez
49. "It was in the attempt to ascertain the interrelationships between species that experiments n genetics were first made. The words "evolution" and "origin of species" are now so intimately associated with the name of Darwin that we are apt to forger that the idea of common descent had been prominent in the mnds of naturalists before he wrote, and that, for more than half a century, zealous investigators had been devoting themselves to the experimental study of that possibility. Prominent among this group of experimenters may be mentioned Koelreauter, John Hunter, Herbert Knight, Gartner, Jordan. Naudin, Godron, Lecoq, Wichura--men whose names are familiar to every reader of Animals and Plants unders Domestication."
Author: William Bateson
