2. "Trezire, tramvai, patru ore de birou sau de uzina, masa, tramvai, patru ore de munca, masa, somn; si luni, marti, miercuri, joi, vineri, sâmbata, în acelasi ritm — iata un drum pe care îl urmam cu usurinta aproape tot timpul. Dar într-o zi ne pomenim întrebându-ne «pentru ce?» si totul începe o data cu aceasta oboseala uimita; «începe», iata lucrul important. Oboseala se afla la capatul faptelor unei vieti masinale, dar ea inaugureaza în acelasi timp miscarea constiintei. Ea o trezeste si provoaca urmarea. Urmarea, adica întoarcerea inconstienta în lant sau trezirea definitiva. Dupa trezire vine, cu timpul, consecinta ei: sinuciderea sau vindecarea."
Author: Albert Camus

"Miss?"I tried not to look as if I was hiding a handsome young lad under the mattress."Yes?""Lord Jasper sent me up to see if you need help getting ready for a ball." She smiled proudly. "I have a fair hand with a curling iron.""Oh.Thank you." I needed to get Colin out before I ended up naked in the middle of my bedroom. "I,um, could I get some hot water? To wash my face?""Certainly,miss. I'll have the footmen bring up the bathtub, if you like, before all the fine ladies start calling for their own baths.""That would be great, thanks." I'd never actually been in a full reclining tub before. We had a battered hip bath in the kitchen.The maid curtsied and closed the door behind her. I let out a breath. Colin crawled back out. "They need to sweep under there," he said, sneezing."

6. "The world that I should wish to see would be one freed from the virulence of group hostilities and capable of realizing that happiness for all is to be derived rather from co-operation than from strife.

Author: Bertrand Russell

9. "Carefully squeezing through the forest of adults that crowded the aisles, feeling like an intruder in a forbidden temple, he cautiously pushed deeper into the newsstand and found a new paperback by a writer whose novel about vampires he had read and reread until the cover was falling apart. There had been an all-black cover on the vampire book. This new one gleamed like polished chrome. It was called THE SHINING, but it cost $2.50 and he had spent all but $1.25 of his weekly allowance on some STAR WARS stuff at the mall."

17. "Em casa, lia a maior parte do tempo; tentava assim extinguir sob impressões exteriores o que fervilhava constantemente em mim. As únicas expressões exteriores de que dispunha vinham-me da leitura. Elas eram pra mim um grande conforto, naturalmente: comoviam-me, distraíam-me, atormentavam-me; porém um momento chegava em que eu ficava muito fatigado. Sentia necessidade de agir: então, de repente, mergulhava na libertinagem, em uma sórdida libertinagenzinha hipócrita, subterrânea. Minha irritação contínua tornava minhas paixões ardentes, lancinantes. Meus impulsos apaixonados terminavam em crises de nervos, com lágrimas e convulsões. Fora da leitura eu não tinha nenhuma distração. Nada em torno de mim que pudesse me impor um certo respeito e me atrair para si. Uma angústia vaga me submergia; eu experimentava uma sede histérica de contrastes, de oposições, e então me lançava na devassidão."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
18. "Some gentlemen have made an amazing figure in literature by general discontent with the universe as a trap of dulness into which their great souls have fallen by mistake; but the sense of a stupendous self and an insignificant world may have its consolations. Lydgate's discontent was much harder to bear; it was the sense that there was a grand existence in thought and effective action lying around him, while his self was being narrowed into the miserable isolation of egoistic fears, and vulgar anxieties for events that might allay such fears."
Author: George Eliot
19. "This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution. Sex and race because they are easy and visible differences have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups and into the cheap labor on which this system still depends. We are talking about a society in which there will be no roles other than those chosen or those earned. We are really talking about humanism."
Author: Gloria Steinem
20. "Paranoid theorizing was too easy, too emotionally satisfying."
Author: Graham Moore
21. "When the boat had gone a few oar-strokes away from land they were still standing on the beach, gazing after the boy whom an unknown woman had left naked in their arms. They were holding hands, and other people gave way before them, and I could see no one except them. Or were they perhaps so extraordinary that other people melted away and vanished into thin air around them?When I had clambered up with my bag onto the deck of the mail-boat North Star, I saw them walking back together on their way home: on the way to our turnstile-gate; home to Brekkukot, our house which was to be razed to the ground tomorrow. They were walking hand in hand, like children."
Author: Halldór Laxness
22. "At the Hospital, everyone thinks about dying.And I'd never been much for romanticizing death-especially not suicide. I'd always been a fan of staying alive.After all, you basically do all you can not to die. All the time. The search for immortality isn't just from storybooks. every day you do it. You buckle your seat-belt, you take vitamin supplements, look both was before you cross the street. And you really think your doing all you can. Bullshit. We can lift weights for fucking hours and we're still going to die."
Author: Hannah Moskowitz

"Most folks got Id and Ego living on different floors in their head's house, in different rooms, and they've locked all the doors between them, and nailed sheets of plywood over that, because they think they're, like, sworn enemies that can't hang together.Ro thought the whole subconscious/conscious issue had something to do with why I am the way I am. She said I have the neurological condition synesthesia out the ass, with all kinds of cross regions of my brain talking to each other. Old witch was always psychoanalyzing me (as in she was the psycho and I was being analyzed). She said my Id and Ego are best buds, they don't just live on the same floor, they share a bed.I'm cool with that. Frees up space for other stuff.I take off, tune out, and do what I do best.Kill."
Author: Karen Marie Moning
30. "Hey, Melissa-is there anything I should know about having this kid that isn't in the books I've been reading?"Sunlight streamed through the window, making the golden, hormone-induced mutton chops glisten upon my cheeks. As I waited for her answer, I thumbed through the glossy parenting magazines on her kitchen table.A candle flickered by the sink, adding sweetness to the spit-up scented air that was gutting punched in the face by a diaper change..."
Author: Kim Bongiorno

Then I rolled my eyes and reached out to ruffle his amazing hair. "Mason Lowe, if you don't know by now that I'm attracted as hell to you, you're freaking blind." He stared at me a moment before muttering, "There. Was that so hard to admit?"
Author: Linda Kage

Author: Mark Zuckerberg
