9. "MELANCHOLIA(Alcuni anni prima)Essendo un animale notturno, in genere vado a letto dopo lo spuntare dell'alba.

È arrivato un pacco!"Sollevandomi a fatica, mormorai:"Cosa?"."

11. "Alban's eyes widened, palpable shock rolling off him. "Daisani's assistant? That Vanessa Gray?" "That one." Alban whistled, a long high sound of wind howling through stone, and Margrit looked at him in surprise. "You can whistle?" His eyebrows wrinkled. "Can't you?" "Of course, but it's so frivolous.

14. "Poi è andata com'è andata. É andata come sappiamo. Sono finite le autoriduzioni, le lotte armate, le rivoluzioni, le autonomie operaie. Ai concerti si paga il biglietto, e che biglietto. I musicisti sono diventati rockstar, o almeno ci hanno provato senza vergogna. Hanno fatto la fila per un passaggio in tv, sono andati al festival di Sanremo e pure al Festivalbar. E se prima si difendevano ai concerti da chi li processava, adess si lamentano se i loro dischi si scaricano dalla rete. Parlano male della droga, del sesso senza amore, della politica che non usa la lingua della ggente. Si sposano (addirittura qualcuno in chiesa), mettono su famiglia, scoproni i valori, smettono di bere, di farsi, consigliano ai giovani di non sprecare la propria vita.Il mercato ha vinto. Il pubblico ha sfrattato il popolo. Siamo più liberi,oggi. Di comprare quello che vogliamo.Ma non è un caso, alla fine se abbiamo sempre meno musica che vale la pena d'essere comprata."
Author: Diego De Silva

16. "El bohío de la loma, bajo sus alas de paja, siente el frescor mañanero y abre sus ojos al alba. Vuela el pájara del nido. Brinca el gallo de la rama. A los becerros, aislados de las tetas de las vacas, les corre por el hocico leche de la madrugada. Las mariposas pululan —rubí, zafir, oro, plata...—: flores huérfanas que rondan buscando a las madres ramas..."
Author: Esmeralda Santiago

Privo d'ogni mezzo, privo della droga che — sola — mi ha consentito fino ad oggi di sopravvivere ai miei incubi, non mi rimane altro modo per sottrarmi al tormento: mi getterò dall'alta finestra di questa soffitta, nella squallida strada sottostante."

Aceasta culoare are un efect special ?i aproape indescriptibil asupra ochiului. Pe scara culorilor este una puternica, însa de partea negativa, ?i la maximum de puritate este, cum s-ar zice, o nega?ie stimulatoare. Aspectul sau este deci un fel de contradic?ie între excita?ie ?i calm."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

29. "Russ decided the best defense was a good offense. "I'm Russell Van Alstyne, Millers Kill chrief of police." He held out his hand. She shook firm, like a guy."Clare Fergusson," she said. "I'm the new priest at Saint Alban's. That's the Episcopal Church. At the corner of Elm and Church." there was a faint testiness in her voice. Russ relaxed a fraction. A woman priest. If that didn't beat all."I know which it is. There are only four churches in town." He saw the fog creeping along the edges of his glasses again and snatched them off, fishing for a tissue in his pocket. "Can you tell me what happened, um..." What was he supposed to call her? "Mother?""I go by Reverend, Chief. Ms. is fine, too.""Oh. Sorry. I never met a woman priest before.""We're just like the men priests, except we're willing to pull over and ask directions."

30. "Like its author, this book is dedicated to Jen Schwalbach - the gorgeous mother of my child, the seductive temptress who keeps me faithful, and the friend I've always had the most fun with. My best friend, even.Also quite like the author, this book is additionally dedicated to Jen Schwalbach asshole.Everything above also applies here, obviously, except the "mother of my child" part: referencing my kid and my wife's brown eye in the same sentiment might come off as crude or something.(And I have a heart: Please don't go telling my kid you read in her old man's book that she's some kinda Butt-Baby. She's gonna have a hard enough time being Silent Bob's daughter - the daughter of the "Too Fat to Fly" guy.Also: Pleas don't tell my daughter I dedicated tge vook to her mother's sphincter. That'd be weird)"

The lake, the blue, is an embrace."

32. "Bad, or good, as it happens to be, that is what it is to exist! . . . It is as though I have been silent and fuddled with sleep all my life. In spite of all, I know now that at least it is better to go always towards the summer, towards those burning seas of light; to sit at night in the forecastle lost in an unfamiliar dream, when the spirit becomes filled with stars, instead of wounds, and good and compassionate and tender. To sail into an unknown spring, or receive one's baptism on storm's promontory, where the solitary albatross heels over in the gale, and at last come to land. To know the earth under one's foot and go, in wild delight, ways where there is water."
Author: Malcolm Lowry
33. "– Talán elkerülte a figyelmedet – felelte Apollón –, hogy a legtöbb halandó legszívesebben senkire sem néz fel, és akire mégis, az pont az, aki éjszakánként az árokban fetreng, lokálokban tobzódik, nem pedig az, aki hajnalban futni jár, és nem kúr."

"Tengo hambre de tu boca, de tu voz, de tu peloy por las calles voy sin nutrirme, callado,no me sostiene el pan, el alba me desquicia,busco el sonido líquido de tus pies en el día.Estoy hambriento de tu risa resbalada,de tus manos color de furioso granero,tengo hambre de la pálida piedra de tus uñas,quiero comer tu piel como una intacta almendra.Quiero comer el rayo quemado en tu hermosura,la nariz soberana del arrogante rostro,quiero comer la sombra fugaz de tus pestañasy hambriento vengo y voy olfateando el crepúsculobuscándote, buscando tu corazón calientecomo un puma en la soledad de Quitratúe"

I tried to pull myself together, splashing my face with water and hauling on my shorts and flip flops. It was a lovely day outside, the sun was scorching hot and there wasn't a cloud in the sky, but it might as well have been a pissing wet morning in St Albans for all I cared. I felt sick to the pit of my stomach as we made the Walk of Death to Room 312, which I knew was Paul and Gus's room.When we walked in, I thought I'd arrived in downtown Baghdad. Water dripped from the ceiling. The board games were in pieces and all the plastic parts were scattered over the floor. The balcony window was wide open and I could see a bed upended by the pool outside."
Author: Paul Merson

48. "People with no experience of life except under communist regimes would tell me that they knew—though they were unsure how—that their life was not ‘natural,' just as Winston Smith concludes that life in Airstrip One (the new name for England in 1984) was unnatural. Other ways of life might have their problems, my Albanian and Rumanian friends would say, but theirs was unique in its violation of human nature. Orwell's imaginative grasp of what it was like to live under communism seemed to them, as it does to me, to amount to genius."
Author: Theodore Dalrymple

Author: Uwem Akpan
50. "Mentre piangeva, la luce si faceva finalmente intera nel suo cervello, una luce straordinaria, una luce meravigliosa e terribile al tempo stesso. La sua vita passata, il primo fallo, la lunga espiazione, il suo abbrutimento esteriore, il suo indurimento interiore, la sua scarcerazione rallegrata dai tanti piani di vendetta, ciò che gli era successo dal vescovo, l'ultima cosa che aveva fatto, quel furto di quaranta soldi a un ragazzo, delitto tanto più vile e tanto più mostruoso in quanto veniva dopo il perdono del vescovo, tutto ciò gli tornò dinanzi e gli apparve chiaramente, ma in una chiarezza mai conosciuta prima. Guardò la sua vita, e gli parve orribile; la sua anima, e gli parve spaventosa. Tuttavia sorgeva un'alba di dolcezza su quella vita e su quell'anima. Gli sembrò di vedere Satana alla luce del paradiso."
