El marido era abstemio, no existía otra mujer, y el comportamiento del que se quejaba la esposa consistía en que el marido había adquirido la costumbre de rematar todas sus comidas quitándose la dentadura postiza y arrojándosela a su esposa, lo cual, estará usted de acuerdo, no es la clase de acto que se le suele ocurrir a un novelista corriente."

Iskreno, nikad baš nisam shvatio što znaci "mladenacki roman". Samo znam da sam, kad sam ih napisao, bio dosta mladi nego danas i da je pri objavljivanju moja zamisao bila da ce roman, ako sam posao obavio dobro, sigurno zainteresirati mlade citatelje izmedu devet i devedeset godina."

Uto je obraz gospode Erike pogodila i druga pljuska. Nimalo ugodan dodir kože o kožu. Erika tiho cvili da ne probudi susjede. Majka pocinje pažljivije osluškivati i razabire da iza vrata sobe taj muškarac njenu kcer degradira u neku vrstu vrece za boksa - nje. Majka ga ljutito upozorava da oštecuje tude vlasništvo, naime njeno!"
Author: Elfriede Jelinek

16. "A civilization is integral and healthy to the extent [that] it is founded on the "invisible" or "underlying" religion, the religio perennis, that is, to the extent [that] its expressions or forms are transparent to the Non-Formal and tend toward the Origin, thus conveying the recollection of a lost Paradise, but also - and with all the more reason - the presentiment of a timeless Beatitude. For the Origin is at once within us and before us; time is but a spiral movement around a motionless Center."
Author: Frithjof Schuon
17. "In the eleven months preceding the outbreak of World War II, 211 treaties of peace were signed. Were these treaties of peace written on paper, or were they written on the hearts of men?

It was not the insistence upon her sex that weakened the American woman student's desire to make something of her education, but the insistence upon a passive sexual role"
Author: Germaine Greer
19. "While we can learn or study techniques for almost anything we might want to accomplish, real understanding is not the mere accumulation of knowledge.

A veces se tiene usted por demasiado raro y se reprocha seguir caminos distintos a los que sigue la mayoría. Deje usted eso. Contemple el fuego, contemple las nubes, y en cuanto surjan los presagios y comiencen a sonar en su alma las voces, abandónese a ellas sin preguntarse antes si le conviene o le parece bien al señor profesor, a papá o a un buen dios cualquiera."
Author: Hermann Hesse
22. "Cada vez que espero una respuesta me horroriza la idea de que no la haya y también de que llegue. Todo resulta luego un desastre, pero mientras está todo por suceder tengo la impresión de la absoluta limpieza y la infinita posibilidad. Me siento como con quince años, no me cabe el escepticismo, es raro. No puedo evitar hacerme ilusiones. (...) Por eso el estado perfecto es el de la espera y el de la ignorancia, lo malo es que si supiera que ese estado iba a durar indefinidamente entonces ya no me gustaría tampoco."
Author: Javier Marías
23. "If two angels were to receive at the same moment a commission from God, one to go down and rule earth's grandest empire, the other to go and sweep the streets of its meanest village, it would be a matter of entire indifference to each which service fell to his lot, the post of ruler or the post of scavenger; for the joy of the angels lies only in obedience to God's will, and with equal joy they would lift a Lazarus in his rags to Abraham's bosom, or be a chariot of fire to carry an Elijah home."
Author: John Newton

25. "Si tengo que definir la poesía y no las tengo todas conmigo, si no me siento demasiado seguro, digo algo como: «poesía es la expresión de la belleza por medio de palabras artísticamente entretejidas». Esta definición podría valer para un diccionario o para un libro de texto, pero a nosotros nos parece poco convincente. Hay algo mucho más importante: algo que nos animaría no sólo a seguir ensayando la poesía, sino a disfrutarla y a sentir que lo sabemos todo sobre ella.Esto significa que sabemos qué es la poesía. Lo sabemos tan bien que no podemos definirla con otras palabras, como somos incapaces de definir el sabor del café, el color rojo o amarillo o el significado de la ira, el amor, el odio, el amanecer, el atardecer o el amor por nuestro país. Estas cosas están tan arraigadas en nosotros que sólo pueden ser expresadas por esos símbolos comunes que compartimos. ¿Y por qué habríamos de necesitar más palabras?"
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
26. "À igreja nunca se lhe pediu que explicasse fosse o que fosse, a nossa outra especialidade, além da balística, tem sido neutralizar, pela fé, o espírito curioso."

28. "- Minha filha, vens da água e a água fala. Vens do tempo e estarás no tempo e a tua palavra estará no vento e será espalhada pela terra. A tua palavra será o fogo que transforma todas as coisas. A tua palavra estará na água be será espelho da língua. A tua palavra terá olhos e verá, terá ouvidos e ouvirá, terá tacto para mentir com a verdade e dirá verdades que parecerão mentiras. E com a tua palavra poderás regressar à quietude, ao princípio onde nada é, onde nada está, onde tudo o que foi criado regressa ao silêncio, mas a tua palavra despertá-lo-á e terás de nomear os deuses e terás de dar vozes às árvores e farás com que a natureza tenha língua e falará por ti o que é invisível. E a tua língua será palavra de luz e a tua palavra, pincel de flores, palavra de cores que, com a tua voz, pintará novos códices."
Author: Laura Esquivel

Author: Luis Alexandre Ribeiro Branco
31. "Morala constituie pentru arta o primejdie pe care multi o subestimeaza, arta se apropie mai mult de natura, prin cruzimea ei infantila, decat morala, care e creatia spiritului uman matur, impins de nevoia de a pune ordine in viata afectiva si de a tine in frau instinctele. Uneori, ea devine necrutatoare,tinzand la suprimarea totala a instinctelor, ca si cand fara ele fiinta umana ar putea supravietui."
Author: Marin Preda

35. "Here's a secret: Everyone, if they live long enough, will lose their way at some point. You will lose your way, you will wake up one morning and find yourself lost. This is a hard, simple truth. If it hasn't happened to you yet, consider yourself lucky. When it does, when one day you look around and nothing is recognizable, when you find yourself alone in a dark wood having lost the way, you may find it easier to blame it on someone else -- an errant lover, a missing father, a bad childhood -- or it may be easier to blame the map you were given -- folded too many times, out-of-date, tiny print -- but mostly, if you are honest, you will only be able to blame yourself.One day I'll tell my daughter a story about a dark time, the dark days before she was born, and how her coming was a ray of light. We got lost for a while, the story will begin, but then we found our way."
Author: Nick Flynn
36. "Non so scrivere su Damasco senza che si intrecci il gelsomino sulle mie dita. Non so pronunciare il suo nome senza che sulla mia bocca si addensi il nettare dell'albicocca, del melograno, della mora e del cotogno. Non so ricordarla senza che si posino su un muretto della memoria mille colombe… e mille colombe volano."
Author: Nizar Qabbani

Author: Octavio Paz

Within a decade Aceh, however unwillyngly, was finally subjugated, its focus recalibrated from the Malay world and the Indian Ocean to Java, and its future rendered unmistakably as part of the Netherlands Indies"
Author: R.E. Elson

43. "Jakze falszywe i niemadre jest lekanie sie smierci jako stanu, który zasluguje raczej na apologie! Cóz moze sie równac z doskonaloscia nieistnienia? Zapewne, prowadzaca don agonia, jako taka, nie stanowi zjawiska atrakcyjnego, ale z drugiej strony nie bylo jeszcze nikogo tak slabego duchem czy cialem, kto by jej nie wytrzymal i nie potrafil calkowicie, bez reszty i do samiutenkiego konca skonac."
Author: Stanisław Lem
44. "Wizards don't believe in gods in the same way that most people don't find it necessary to believe in, say, tables. They know they're there, they know they're there for a purpose, they'd probably agree that they have a place in a well-organised universe, but they wouldn't see the point of believing, of going around saying "O great table, without whom we are as naught." Anyway, either the gods are there whether you believe in them or not, or exist only as a function of the belief, so either way you might as well ignore the whole business and, as it were, eat off your knees."
Author: Terry Pratchett
45. "Conversation creates a new kind of network within organizations. Current networks are used for competitive advantage, but conversation is focused on encouraging people to realize their potential."

Author: Tiffany Reisz
48. "By declaring that man is responsible and must actualize the potential meaning of his life, I wish to stress that the true meaning of life is to be discovered in the world rather than within man or his own psyche, as though it were a closed system. I have termed this constitutive characteristic "the self-transcendence of human existence." It denotes the fact that being human always points, and is directed, to something or someone, other than oneself--be it a meaning to fulfill or another human being to encounter. The more one forgets himself--by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love--the more human he is and the more he actualizes himself. What is called self-actualization is not an attainable aim at all, for the simple reason that the more one would strive for it, the more he would miss it. In other words, self-actualization is possible only as a side-effect of self-transcendence."
Author: Viktor E. Frankl
49. "Failing organizations are usually over-managed and under-led."
Author: Warren G. Bennis
50. "Because of Mozart, it's all over after the age of seven."
