Author: Gary Shteyngart

11. "Prága utcái olyan fantáziát képeztek, amelyet alig érintett meg a huszonegyedik század – vagy akár a huszadik, esetleg a tizenkilencedik. Alkimisták és álmodozók városa volt, középkori macskakövein gólemek, misztikusok, hódító hadseregek jártak egykor. Magas házak ragyogtak aranyvesszo és kárminvörös és tojáshéjkék színekben, rokokó gipszcsipkékkel díszítve, egyforma piros tetok alatt. Barokk kupolák antik reze zöldellt lágyan, és gótikus tutornyok nyúltak az égbe, hogy felnyársalják a bukott angyalokat. A szél mágia, hegeduk emlékét sodorta, és a macskaköves utcák úgy kanyarogtak, mint megannyi patak. Mozart-parókás banditák kamarazenét játszottak az utcasarkokon, és az ablakokból marionettek lógtak, amelyektol az egész város egyetlen, nagy bábszínháznak tetszett, láthatatlan bábosokkal a bársony mögött. Mindennek fölébe tornyosult a kastély a dombteton, körvonalai élesek voltak, mint a tövisek. éjszaka reflektorfényben fürdött, kísértetiesen."
Author: Laini Taylor

14. "Jean-Yves looked up at his mother's face, her greying chignon, her harsh features: it was difficult to feel a rush of tenderness, of affection for this woman; as far back as he could remember, she had never really been one for hugs; it was equally difficult to imagine her in the role of a sensual lover, a slut. He suddenly realised that his father must have been bored shitless his whole life. He felt terribly shocked by this, his hands tensed on the edge of the table: this time it was irreparable, it was definitive. In despair, he tried to recall a moment when he had seen his father beaming, happy, genuinely glad to be alive."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
15. "Amondó vagyok, egy város nem is város könyvesbolt nélkül. Lehet, hogy városnak hívja magát, de ha nincsen könyvesboltja, senkit nem tud átverni."
Author: Neil Gaiman
16. "Consistently, [Yves] Congar emphasized the distinction between Tradition and traditionalism. The latter was an unyielding commitment to the past. The former was a living principle of commitment to the Beginning, a process that required creativity, inspiration, and a spirit of openness to the present as well as respect for the past. Two of Congar's works, on reform in the church and on the theology of the laity, proved especially controversial...Congar believed that reform was a vital and necessary dimension of the church. This was rooted in the distinction between the church and the kingdom of God and in the intermingling in the church of both divine and human elements. In light of the church's constant temptation to revert to institutionalism, it was always necessary to allow room for the prophetic voice, issuing from the margins, even though this might mean attending to uncomfortable truths."
Author: Robert Ellsberg
17. "Mr. Moore-tól hallom a nagy újságot, hogy Lady Castlemaine kegyvesztett lett és ma reggel elhagyta az udvart. Okát nem tudja, csak azt, hogy így van, amit én nagyon sajnálok, de ha a király nemcsak ot hagyja el, hanem a többi szeretoit is, akkor szívbol örülök ennek, mert úgy lehet, akkor majd többet törodik az ország dolgaival."
Author: Samuel Pepys
18. "Oh, Alan Ryves," she said. "You're such a fantastic liar. You are the smoothest con man of them all."
Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
19. "I love French style from the Thirties and Forties. French movie stars like Jean Gabin and Yves Montand had so much natural, effortless style."
