2. "He (Lafcadio) was sitting all alone in a compartment of the train which was carrying him away from Rome, & contemplating–not without satisfaction–his hands in their grey doeskin gloves, as they lay on the rich fawn-colored plaid, which, in spite of the heat, he had spread negligently over his knees. Through the soft woolen material of his traveling-suit he breathed ease and comfort at every pore; his neck was unconfined in its collar which without being low was unstarched, & from beneath which the narrow line of a bronze silk necktie ran, slender as a grass snake, over his pleated shirt. He was at ease in his skin, at ease in his shoes, which were cut out of the same doeskin as his gloves; his foot in its elastic prison could stretch, could bend, could feel itself alive. His beaver hat was pulled down over his eyes & kept out the landscape; he was smoking dried juniper, after the Algerian fashion, in a little clay pipe & letting his thoughts wander at their will …"

Cehalet tam mutluluk mudur, bilmiyorum ama düsünmek çok aci verici ve söyleyin bana, düsünmek bana ne verdi, beni hangi üstün mertebeye getirdi?

He waits eagerly by His palace doors to welcome you, and has prepared a place at His high table by His side, in the company of the great-souled, honored, and best-beloved. In this I speak true. Bend your head."

Nature is always right outside our door as a reference and touch point. We should use it far more than we do."

32. "Ben öyle yerlere varmistim ki hayalimde bu ayrilmayi bir ihanet saydim gücendim. Hayir benimle basa çikilmaz beni birak Günseli. Herkes için öyle hayaller kurdum ki senin için de bir kurmaya baslarsam...Bak Günseli düsün beni tanidigin kadariyla seviyorsun, bir bilsen bilmediklerinin yaninda bildiklerin ne kadar az yer tutuyor. Belki ben öyle esasli bir adamim ki, her seyimi bilsen askin da korkunç olacak ben dayanamayacagim.Sonra birden suratini asardi. Bunlarin dogru olmadigini içimde bir yerde biliyorum.

Bana baktikça, o kaçinilmaz son vakit gelip çatinca korkudan nasil altiniza dolduracaginizi seziyorsunuz. Bu bir saka degil; ölümle karsilastiginda, özellikle aslan huylu erkeklerin büyük çogunlugu, kendilerini koyuverirler. Binlerce kere naksettiginiz savas alanlari, sanildigi gibi kan, barut ve kizismis zirh degil, bu yüzden bok ve çürümüs et kokar."

"[To] mechanical progress there is apparently no end: for as in the past so in the future, each step in any direction will remove limits and bring in past barriers which have till then blocked the way in other directions; and so what for the time may appear to be a visible or practical limit will turn out to be but a bend in the road.(Opening address to the Mechanical Science Section, Meeting of the British Association, Manchester.)"
Author: Osborne Reynolds

I turn on the tap for her; she laps without a glance in my direction, like a duchess so used to being ministered to that she no longer notices the servants and sees only a world where objects dumbly bend to her wishes, doors opening, faucets discharging cool water, delicious things appearing in her dish."
Author: Peter Trachtenberg

Kau mengabdi pada tanah ini, tanah yang memberimu nasi dan air. Tapi para raja dan para pangeran dan para bupati sudah jual tanah keramat ini pada Belanda.

42. "I love going out of my way, beyond what I know, and finding my way back a few extra miles, by another trail, with a compass that argues with the map…nights alone in motels in remote western towns where I know no one and no one I know knows where I am, nights with strange paintings and floral spreads and cable television that furnish a reprieve from my own biography, when in Benjamin's terms, I have lost myself though I know where I am. Moments when I say to myself as feet or car clear a crest or round a bend, I have never seen this place before. Times when some architectural detail on vista that has escaped me these many years says to me that I never did know where I was, even when I was home."
Author: Rebecca Solnit

Here on the outskirts of the village, the wind is always pressing close, making windows groan. It whispers and it howls and it sings. It can bend its voice and cast it into any shape, long and thin enough to slide beneath the door, stout enough to seem a thing of weight and breath and bone. "The wind was here when you were born, when I was born, when our house was built, when the Council was formed, and even when the Near Witch lived,"
Author: Victoria Schwab
