1. "Inilah yang dulu kukatakan, dalam hidup segala hal mestilah dilakukan pada batas kewajaran. Karena keselamatan berada di tengah antara dua hal yang saling berlawanan. Jadi keselamatan adalah jalan tengah, atau kewajaran atau keberimbangan. Yang kita saksikan akhir-akhir ini adalah kehidupan yang serba tidak wajar, melampaui batas. Dan kehidupan takkan kembali berimbang sebelum dia mengalami akibat ketidakwajaran itu. E, anakku, cucuku, kita sendiri telah ikut-ikutan lupa."
Author: Ahmad Tohari

Author: Alastair Reynolds
3. "There was a teapot, in which Mma Ramotswe -- the only lady private detective in Botwana -- brewed tea. And three mugs -- one for herself, one for her secretary, and one for the client. What else does a detective agency really need?"
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
4. "As a girl she had imagined the Milky Way was the curtain of heaven, a notion she had been sorry to abandon as she had grown up. But she would not abandon a belief in heaven itself, wherever that may be, because she felt that if she gave that up then there would be very little left. Heaven may not turn out to be the place of her imagining, she conceded--the place envisaged in the old Botswana stories, a place inhabited by gentle white cattle, with sweet breath--but it would surely be something not too unlike that, at least in the way it felt; a place where late people would be give all that they had lacked on this earth--a place of love for those who had not been loved, a place where those who had had nothing would find they had everything the human heart could desire."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
5. "You cannot divide a child's heart in two" she had observed to Mma Makutsi, "and yet that is what some people wish to do. A child has only one heart.""And the rest of us?" Mma Makutsi had asked. "Do we not have one heart too?"Mma Ramotswe nodded. "Yes, we have only one heart, but as you grow older you heart grows bigger. A child loves only one or two things; we love so many things.""Such as?"Mma Ramotswe smiled. "Botswana. Rain. Cattle. Friends. Our children. Our late relatives. The smell of woodsmoke in the morning. Red bush tea..."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
6. "She was of traditional build herself, but her figure was largely concealed by the folds of a generously cut shift dress made out of a flecked green fabric. It was like a tent, thought Mma Ramotswe--a camouflage tent of the sort that the Botswana Defence Force might use. But I do not sit in judgement on the dresses of others, she told herself, and a tent was a practical enough garment, if that is what one felt comfortable in."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
7. "So it was perfectly possible that there were men who liked shopping, men who understood exactly what it was all about, but Mma Ramotwe had yet to meet such a man. Maybe they existed elsewhere - in France, perhaps - but they did not seem to be much in evidence in Botswana."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
8. "She hoped that her baby was happy and would be waiting for her when she herself left Botswana and went to heaven. Would Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni get round to naming a wedding date before then? She hoped so, although he certainly seemed to be taking his time. Perhaps they could get married in heaven, if he left it too late. That would certainly be cheaper."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
9. "Botswana is actually very peaceful. It's democratic. It never was in debt. They've been fortunate, they've had diamonds."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
10. "Everything, all those great things, had happened so far away--or so it seemed to [Mma Ramotswe] at the time. The world was made to sound as if it belonged to other people--to those who lived in distant countries that were so different from Botswana; that was before people had learned to assert that the world was theirs too, that what happened in Botswana was every bit as important, and valuable, as what happened anywhere else."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
11. "Traditional Botswana men like ladies who are more traditionally shaped. You and I, Mma. We remind men of how things used to be in Botswana before these modern-shaped ladies started to get men all confused."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
12. "Mma Ramotswe had a detective agency in Africa, at the foot of Kgale Hill. These were its assets: a tiny white van, two desks, two chairs, a telephone, and an old typewriter. Then there was a teapot, in which Mma Ramotswe – the only lady private detective in Botswana – brewed redbush tea. And three mugs – one for herself, one for her secretary, and one for the client. What else does a detective agency really need? Detective agencies rely on human intuition and intelligence, both of which Mma Ramotswe had in abundance. No inventory would ever include those, of course."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
13. "Spectre horsemen, pale with dust, anonymous in the crenellated heat. Above all else they appeared wholly at venture, primal, provisional, devoid of order. Like beings provoked out of the absolute rock and set nameless and at no remove from their own loomings to wander ravenous and doomed and mute as gorgons shambling the brutal wastes of Gondwanaland in a time before nomenclature was and each was all."
Author: Cormac McCarthy
14. "This is because Marxism looks at things as a whole and in relation to each other—or tries to, but its limitations are not the point for the moment. A person who has been influenced by Marxism takes it for granted that an event in Siberia will affect one in Botswana. I think it is possible that Marxism was the first attempt, for our time [written in 1971], outside the formal religions, at a world-mind, a world ethic. It went wrong, could not prevent itself from dividing and subdividing, like all the other religions, into smaller and smaller chapels, sects and creeds. But it was an attempt."
Author: Doris Lessing
15. "Majina ya vitabu yanapaswa kuchaguliwa kwa mantiki na kwa makini ya hali ya juu mno, kwa sababu ni miongoni mwa vitu vya kwanza watu wanavyoviona na kuvisoma. Watu wakivutiwa na jina la kitabu, au mwandishi; kitu cha pili watakachovutiwa kuangalia ni dibaji, kusudi wasome muhtasari wa kitabu kizima. Kwa hiyo dibaji inapaswa iandikwe kwa mantiki na kwa makini ileile iliyotumika katika kuchagua jina la kitabu. Lengo la jina la kitabu na dibaji ni kuishawishi hadhira kusoma kitabu na kukifurahia."

27. "Serikali imepewa mamlaka na wananchi kuwaendeshea nchi yao. Mamlaka ya wananchi hushinda ya serikali."
Author: Enock Maregesi
28. "Wananchi wanapokosa huduma za muhimu za kijamii (kama vile afya, elimu, chakula, malazi, na ulinzi) ilhali wanalipa kodi, na wameajiri serikali kuwaendeshea nchi kwa kiapo cha uaminifu wa vitabu vitakatifu, watakosa imani na serikali yao! Vilevile wataathirika kiuchumi, kijamii na kisiasa, na vita itaweza kutokea kati ya wananchi na serikali, au wananchi kwa wananchi wataweza hata kujidhuru wenyewe – nikimaanisha vita ya wenyewe kwa wenyewe. Serikali ikifuata maadili ya kazi, na kuacha udikteta na urasimu wa aina yoyote ile, au ikifanya kazi kulingana na misingi ya katiba ya nchi; wananchi watapata huduma za kijamii kama wanavyostahili, na ndoto ya haki na ustawi wa jamii itaweza kutimia. Hata hivyo, serikali inaweza kuwadhulumu wananchi wake kwa sababu ya usalama wao."
Author: Enock Maregesi
29. "Serikali inayodhulumu wananchi wake ni hatari kuliko simba."
Author: Enock Maregesi
30. "Wanaume hupenda nyama kwenye mifupa."
Author: Enock Maregesi
31. "Kitu cha kwanza kufanyika mwanadamu anapozaliwa ni kuvuta pumzi ya kwanza katika mapafu ya mwili wake. Cha mwisho kufanyika kabla ya kufa ni kutoa pumzi ya mwisho katika mapafu ya mwili wake. Pumzi iliyoingia kwanza baada ya kuzaliwa, itakuwa ya mwisho kutoka kabla ya kufa. Pumzi ni bora kuliko muda halafu pumzi ni uhai. Bila uhai watu hawataweza kusherehekea mwaka mpya au kufanya chochote. Likumbuke jina la Mwenyezi Mungu katika kila pumzi unayoingiza na kutoa."
Author: Enock Maregesi
32. "Las Vegas. Madhali umeona tunafanya nini katika maisha, fumba macho kwa kuyakodoa. Wanaosema hawajui wanaojua hawasemi. Siri ni siri milele. Kinachofanyika hapa hubakia hapa."
Author: Enock Maregesi
33. "Zawadi bora ya maisha kwa mwanadamu si fursa ya kufanya kazi kwa bidii na kuwa kitu fulani katika jamii. Ni amani ya Mungu katika moyo wa mwanadamu."
Author: Enock Maregesi

Hindi isang penguin na pwedeng makipag-mate kahit kanino, dahil pinagtabi kayo ng zoo keeper sa iisang pugad."

38. "Materialism has defeated feminism as well. In a sign of the times, Gloria Steinem was on the picket line when the first American DeBeers store opened on Fifth Avenue in June 2005, protesting the evictions of Bushmen in Botswana to make room for diamond miners and the charges that the company dealt in "blood diamonds" used to finance civil wars in Africa.Her presence meant nothing to young Hollywood beauties who are pleased to shill for the diamond industry in magazine layouts and personal appearances.As Steinem stood outside, Lindsay Lohan was inside the party, gushing over the possibility that she could get to wear one of the big rocks.Asked by reporters about the Bushmen controversy, she shrugged it off: "I don't get involved in any drama."
Author: Maureen Dowd
39. "Makanya ada pujangga membuat bidalan bahawa pemimpin yang luhur adalah seperti air. Ia menjadi tempat kehidupan banyak pihak dan dengan semua kelembutan, dirinya cuba akur terhadap alam tanpa mahu ada perlawanan. Dan ia sering mengalir ke alur yang lebih rendah, tempat jauh yang tidak disukai orang banyak. Pemimpin yang saya mahukan adalah air yang penuh kehormatan menyesuaikan diri dengan apa yang ditempati."
Author: Mawar Safei

"-Tak, tak – powiedzial doktor, odwrócil sie do Iwana i dodal: - Dzien dobry!-Serwus, draniu! - glosno, z nienawiscia odpowiedzial Iwan.Riuchin zmieszal sie do tego stopnia, ze nie osmielil sie nawet podniesc oczu na uprzejmego lekarza. Ale tamten ani troche sie nie obrazil, tylko wprawnym ruchem zdjal okulary, rozchylil fartuch, wlozyl je do tylnej kieszeni spodni, a nastepnie zapytal Iwana:-Ile pan ma lat?-Idzcie wy wreszcie do wszystkich diablów! - ordynarnie wrzasnal Iwan i odwrócil sie.-Czemu pan sie zlosci? Czy powiedzialem cos niegrzecznego?-Mam dwadziescia trzy lata – powiedzial ze wzburzeniem Iwan – i zloze na was wszystkich zazalenie. A juz zwlaszcza na ciebie, ty gnido! - Riuchinem zajal sie oddzielnie.-A z jakiego powodu chce pan skladac zazalenie?-A z takiego, ze mnie, zdrowego i normalnego czlowieka, zwiazana i przemoca przywieziono do domu wariatów! - gniewnie odpowiedzial Iwan."
Author: Mikhail Bulgakov
42. "I przez cala te brudna droge, nie wiedziec czemu, niewypowiedzianie dreczyla Iwana wszechobecna orkiestra, przy akompaniamencie której ociezaly bas spiewal o swej milosci do Tatiany."
Author: Mikhail Bulgakov

Author: Munindra Misra
44. "No sane paleontologist would ever claim that he or she had discovered "The Ancestor." Think about it this way: What is the chance that while walking through any random cemetery on our planet I would discover an actual ancestor of mine? Diminishingly small. What I would discover is that all people buried in these cemeteries-- no mater whether that cemetery is in China, Botswana, or Italy-- are related to me to different degrees. I can find this out by looking at their DNA with many of the forensic techniques in use in crime labs today. I'd see that some of the denizens of the cemeteries are distantly related to me, others are related more closely. This tree would be a very powerful window into my past and my family history. It would also have a practical application because I could use this tree to understand my predilection to get certain diseases and other facts of my biology. The same is true when we infer relationship among species."
Author: Neil Shubin
45. "In South Africa, being Chinese meant I wasn't white and I wasn't black. I trained in Baragwanath Hospital, the largest black hospital in South Africa. That was around 1976, the time of the Soweto Uprising, when police fired on children and students who were protesting. I was part of the group of interns who volunteered to treat them."
Author: Patrick Soon Shiong
46. "Between 2001 and 2011, Brazil lifted 20 million people out of poverty and into its growing middle class, and in the last quarter of the twentieth century Botswana's gross domestic product per capita grew faster than that of any other country on the planet. The once-labeled 'Third World' is edging its way into the 'First World.'"
Author: Peter Blair Henry
47. "Wszyscy musza byc podobni jeden do drugiego. Kazdy czlowiek wizerunkiem innego czlowieka. Wtedy wszyscy sa szczesliwi, bo nie ma gór, by sie przed nimi zginac ze strachu i porównywac sie z nimi. Ksiazka to naladowana bron w sasiednim domu. Spal ja, rozladuj bron. Rozbij mózg czlowieka. Skad wiadomo, kto móglby sie stac celem oczytanego czlowieka?"
Author: Ray Bradbury
48. "Staram sie unikac zadawania pytan, które zbyt mocno przywodza na mysl dzien sadu ostatecznego. Pytanie jest jak kamien wywolujacy lawine. Siedzisz spokojnie na szczycie wzgórza, a kamien spada w dól, poruszajac inne, i wreszcie jakis niepozorny dziadyga, o którym nawet przez moment nie myslales, dostaje w leb w swoim ogródku za domem, i cala szanowana dotad rodzina musi szybko zmieniac nazwisko. O nie, mój drogi, stworzylem wlasne prawo: im niezwyklejsza wydaje sie sprawa, tym mniej o nia pytam."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
49. "I go on a hunting safari at least once a year to Botswana, which is fantastic because we have a huge area of wilderness entirely to ourselves. My island covers roughly 55 acres, which again I have to myself, with nearly half a kilometre of private beach with my own jetties and boats."
Author: Wilbur Smith
50. "Gerakan kaum intelektual dengan berbagai kecenderungannya bukan gaung isolasi dan kepanikan pemikiran, omong kosong tanpa makna, angan-angan gersang, maupun duduk santai di menara gading yang tinggi apalagi sebuah bentuk pelarian dari realitas kehidupan. Pada hakikatnya gerakan ini merupakan sebuah upaya mulia guna bangkit melawan musuh lewat wacana ketika perlawanan melalui kekuatan militer dan politik mengalami kebuntuan."
