1. "XXIXTraveler, there is no path.The path is made by walking.Traveller, the path is your tracksAnd nothing more.Traveller, there is no pathThe path is made by walking.By walking you make a pathAnd turning, you look backAt a way you will never tread againTraveller, there is no road Only wakes in the sea."
Author: Antonio Machado
2. "Acel gest simbolic de a o întrona pe Déesse Raison la Notre-Dame pare sa fi însemnat pentru lumea apuseana ceva asemanator cu taierea Stejarilor lui Wotan de catre misionarii crestini, caci nici atunci, nici acum, fulgerul razbunator nu i-a lovit pe nelegiuiti. Este probabil mai mult decât o gluma a istoriei universale faptul ca tocmai în acel moment si tocmai un francez, Anquetil du Perron, se afla în India si, la începutul secolului al XIX-lea, aducea acasa o traducere a Oupnek'hat, o culegere de cincizeci de Upanisade, care au permis pentru prima oara Occidentului sa arunce o privire mai adânca înauntrul enigmaticului spirit al Orientului … Masa anonima de oameni întunecati, care s-a adunat cu gânduri distrugatoare în Notre-Dame, s-a napustit si asupra individului, nimerindu-l si pe Anquetil du Perron, în care a provocat un raspuns devenit istoric. De la el se trag Schopenhauer si Nietzsche, de la el apare acea influenta spirituala înca incalculabila a Orientului."
Author: C.G. Jung
3. "XIX. Delight becomes pictorial When viewed through pain, — More fair, because impossible That any gain. The mountain at a given distance In amber lies; Approached, the amber flits a little, — And that 's the skies!"
Author: Emily Dickinson
4. "Jamais consegui nada, nem mesmo me tornar malvado; não consegui ser belo, nem mau, nem canalha, nem herói, nem mesmo um inseto. E agora, termino a existência no meu cantinho, onde tento piedosamente me consolar, aliás sem sucesso, dizendo-me que um homem inteligente não consegue nunca se tornar alguma coisa, e que só o imbecil triunfa. Sim, meus senhores, o homem do século XIX tem o dever de ser essencialmente destituído de caráter; está moralmente obrigado a isso. O homem que possui caráter, o homem de ação, é um ser essencialmente medíocre."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
5. "But how? Genius in the Sperm Whale? Has the Sperm Whale ever written a book, spoken a speech? No, his great genius is declared in his doing nothing particular to prove it. It is moreover declared in his pyramidical silence. (Moby Dick Chapter lxxix p345)"
Author: Herman Melville
6. "... Their sneak-out was over. But by then it was too late. In his mind, Katherine I was already becoming Katherine XIX. She would soon retake the throne that, all along, had rightfully been hers."
Author: John Green
7. "La imagen que nos ofrece México al finalizar el siglo XIX es la de la discordia. Una discordia más profunda que la querella política o la guerra civil, pues consistía en la superposición de formas jurídicas y culturales que no solamente no expresaban a nuestra realidad, sino que la asfixiaban e inmovilizaban. […] Cortados los lazos con el pasado, imposible el diálogo con los Estados Unidos –que sólo hablaban con nosotros el lenguaje de la fuerza o el de los negocios–, inútil la relación con los pueblos de lengua española, encerrados en formas muertas, estábamos reducidos a una imitación unilateral de Francia –que siempre nos ignoró–. ¿Qué nos quedaba? Asfixia y soledad."
Author: Octavio Paz
8. "LXXIXWhen I die, I want your hands on my eyes.I want the light and wheat of your beloved hands to pass their freshness over me once moreLI want to feel the softness that changed my destiny.I want you to live while I wait for you, asleep.I want your ears still to hear the wind, I want you to sniff the sea's aroma that we loved together,to continue to walk on the sand we walk on.I want what I love to continue to live,and you whom I love and sang above everything else.to continue to flourish, full-flowered.So that you can reach everything my love directs you to. So that my shadow can travel along in your hair,so that everything can learn the reason for my song."
Author: Pablo Neruda
9. "XXIXYou have set me among those who are defeated.I know it is not for me to win, nor to leave the game.I shall plunge into the pool although but to sink to the bottom.I shall play the game of my undoing.I shall stake all I have and when I lose my last penny I shall stake myself, and then I think I shall have won through my utter defeat."
Author: Rabindranath Tagore
10. "Mais même au XIX siècle elles étaient souvent obligées de se cacher; elles n'avaient pas même 'une chambre à elles', c'est-à-dire qu'elles ne jouissaient pas de cette indépendance matérielle qui est une des conditions nécessaires de la liberté intérieure."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
11. "Dzieje kultury wykazuja, ze glupota jest siostra blizniacza rozumu, ona rosnie najbujniej nie na glebie dziewiczej ignorancji , lecz na gruncie uprawnym siódmym potem doktorów i profesorów. Wielkie absurdy nie sa wymyslane przez tych, których rozum krzata sie wokól spraw codziennych. Nic dziwnego zatem, ze wlasnie najintensywniejsi mysliciele bywali producentami najwiekszego glupstwa. / The history of culture shows that foolishness is a twin sister of wisdom. It does not flourish on the fields of pure ignorance but on the fields tirelessly plowed by doctors and professors. Great absurdities do not flourish where one is busy with everyday life. No wonder that sometimes most vigorous thinkers come up with utmost stupidities. (Dziennik 1956, XIX, Thursday)"
Author: Witold Gombrowicz
