Ella parecía sorber, beberse mi corazón. Cuando la dejé marchar, la quería menos."

Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
22. "In science's pecking order, evolutionary biology lurks somewhere near the bottom, far closer to phrenology than to physics. For evolutionary biology is a historical science, laden with history's inevitable imponderables.

Onda je to užasno."

It had carnivorous plants, amphibious birds, oysters that grew on trees, cacti that grew in water, lizards that changed colors, and fish that changed genders. It had 1,100 species of trees and plants, 350 birds, and 52 varieties of porcelain-smooth, candy-striped tree snails. It had bottlenose dolphins, marsh rabbits, ghost orchids, moray eels, bald eagles, and countless other species that didn't seem to belong on the same continent, much less in the same ecosystem."

Mattia sorriu apressadamente, automaticamente, e Alice levou um dedo aos lábios húmidos, quase que a certificar-se se tinha realmente acontecido. Havia uma decisão a tomar e tinha de ser tomada sem falar. Olharam um para o outro, alternadamente, mas já tinham perdido a sincronia e os seus olhos não se encontraram."
Author: Paolo Giordano

41. "Kad sam imao petnaest godina, radio sam u vocnjaku i brao jagode. Vecina drugih radnika bili su nadnicari. S nama su radili i neki nastavnici, zaradujuci tako dodatni novac za ljeto. Spomenuo sam to ocu i rekao kako mi se cini da je taj posao ispod njihove razine. (Izgleda da sam mislio i da je ispod moje.) Dobio sam jezikovu juhu kakvu cu pamtiti. Otac je vjerovao da fizicki rad ne može biti ispod necije razine. Rekao je da bi više volio da postanem najbolji kopac kanala na svijetu nego da se lijeno provlacim kao samozadovoljni elitist iza kakvog uredskog stola.Vratio sam se u vocnjak, što ne znaci da mi se posao sad više svidao. U svakom slucaju, zapamtio sam oceve rijeci. Promijenio sam stav i marljivije prionuo na posao."
Author: Randy Pausch
42. "PERCY ALREADY FELT LIKE THE lamest demigod in the history of lame. The purse was the final insult. They'd left R.O.F.L. in a hurry, so maybe Iris hadn't meant the bag as a criticism. She'd quickly stuffed it with vitamin-enriched pastries, dried fruit leather, macrobiotic beef jerky, and a few crystals for good luck. Then she'd shoved it at Percy: Here, you'll need this. Oh, that looks good. The purse—sorry, masculine accessory bag—was rainbow tie-dyed with a peace symbol stitched in wooden beads and the slogan Hug the Whole World. Percy wished it said Hug the Commode. He felt like the bag was a comment on his massive, incredible uselessness. As they sailed north, he put the man satchel as far away from him as he could, but the boat was small."
Author: Rick Riordan

Author: Rodney Brooks
44. "White, is not a race, it is a color, European, is not a race, it is a place named after the goddess Europa. Caucasian, is not a race, it is a place and mountain range. Gentile, is not a race, it is a biblical name that was given to describe Aryans as non-Jews. Aryan is the biological correct name of our race! Aryan is who we are by blood and the genetic source of our being and beginning. All the numerous names, German, French, Irish, Scotch, Polish, Italian, Norwegian and on and on are simply the many tribal names of the Aryan people."
Author: Ron McVan
45. "Styrofoam and plastic milk jugs are biodegradable! Do you know what isn't biodegradable? Paper!"
Author: Rush Limbaugh
46. "In the laboratory, we call this the six-degrees-of-separation-from-cancer rule: you can ask any biological question, no matter how seemingly distant—what makes the heart fail, or why worms age, or even how birds learn songs—and you will end up, in fewer than six genetic steps, connecting with a proto-oncogene or tumor suppressor."
Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee
47. "Perinatal phenomena occur in four distinct experiential patterns, which I call the Basic Perinatal Matrices (BPMs). Each of the four matrices is closely related to one of the four consecutive periods of biological delivery. At each of these stages, the baby undergoes experiences that are characterized by specific emotions and physical feelings; each of these stages also seems to be associated with specific symbolic images. These come to represent highly individualized pyschospiritual blueprints that guide the way we experience our lives. They may be reflected in individual and social psychopathology or in religion, art, philosophy, politics, and other areas of life. And, or course, we can gain access to these psychospiritual blueprints through non-ordinary states of consciousness, which allow us to see the guiding forces of our lives much more clearly."
Author: Stanislav Grof
48. "Rouz je bila na mojoj strani onako kako niko nikada nije bio na mojoj strani. Rouz je bila dobrovoljac. Bilo joj je stalo do mene. Voleci me, ona me je oslobodila. Bio sam slobodan da budem ono sto jesam. Nije u meni videla samo coveka kakav jesam, nego i coveka kakav bi mogao da budem. Voleci me, ucinila je da poverujem da bi moji snovi mogli da postanu stvarnost."
Author: Tony Parsons
49. "Depois do terramoto que destruíra três quartos de Lisboa, os sábios do país não acharam meio mais eficaz de prevenir uma ruína total que oferecer um belo Auto-da-fé; foi decidido pela Universidade de Coimbra que o espetáculo de algumas pessoas queimadas em lume brando, numa grande cerimónia, é um segredo infalível para impedir a terra de tremer."
Author: Voltaire
50. "La unión de dos almas sincerasno admite impedimentos.No es amor el amorque se transforma con el cambio,o se aleja con la distancia.¡Oh, no! Es un faro siempre firme,que desafía a las tempestades sin estremecerse.Es la estrella para el navio a la deriva,de valor incalculable, aunque se mída su altura.No es amor bufón del tiempo, aunque los rosados labios ymejillas caigan bajo el golpe de su guadaña.El amor no se altera con sus breves horas y semanas,sino que se afianza incluso hasta en el borde del abismo.Sí estoy equivocado y se demuestra,yo nunca nada escribí, y nadie jamás amó."
Author: William Shakespeare
