3. "Pero hermanos, este morderse las uñas acerca de la causa de la maldad es lo que me da verdadera risa. No les preocupa saber cuál es la causa de la bondad, y entonces, ¿por qué quieren averiguar el otro asunto? Si los liudos (individuos) son buenos es porque les gusta, y ni se me ocurriría interferir en sus placeres, así que lo mismo deberían hacer en el otro negocio. Y yo soy cliente del otro negocio."
Author: Anthony Burgess
4. "The compelling thing about making art—or making anything, I suppose—is the moment when the vaporous, insubstantial idea becomes a solid there, a thing, a substance in a world of substances. Circe, Nimbue, Artemis, Athena, all the old sorceresses: they must have known the feeling as they transformed mere men into fabulous creatures, stole the secrets of the magicians, disposed armies: ah, look, there it is, the new thing. Call it a swine, a war, a laurel tree. Call it art."
Author: Audrey Niffenegger
5. "La competencia, considerada como lo más importante de la vida, es algo demasiado triste, demasiado duro, demasiado cuestión de músculos tensos y voluntad firme, para servir como base de la vida durante más de una o dos generaciones, como máximo. Después de ese plazo tiene que provocar fatiga nerviosa, diversos fenómenos de escape, una búsqueda de placeres tan tensa y tan difícil como el trabajo (porque relajarse resulta ya imposible), y al final la desaparición de la estirpe por esterilidad. No es solo el trabajo lo que ha quedado envenenado por la filosofía de la competencia; igualmente envenenado ha quedado el ocio. El tipo de ocio tranquilo y restaurador de los nervios se considera aburrido. Tiene que haber una continua aceleración, cuyo desenlace natural serán las drogas y el colapso. El remedio consiste en reconocer la importancia del disfrute sano y tranquilo en un ideal de vida equilibrado."
Author: Bertrand Russell
6. "De todos los vicios, sólo la cobardía es puramente dolorosa: horrible de anticipar, horrible de sentir, horrible de recordar; el ocio tiene sus placeres. En consecuencia, el odio es a menudo la compensación mediante la que un hombre asustado se resarce de los sufrimientos del miedo. Cuanto más miedo tenga, más odiará. Y el odio es también un antídoto de la vergüenza.Escrutopo"
Author: C.S. Lewis
7. "On my seventh birthday, my father swore, for the first of many times, that I would die facedown in a cesspool. On that same occasion, my mother, with all the accompanying mystery and elevated language appropriate for a prominent diviner, turned her cards, screamed delicately, and proclaimed that my doom was written in water and blood and ice. As for me, from about that time and for twenty years since, I had spat on my middle finger and slapped the rump of every aingerou I noticed, murmuring the sincerest, devoutest prayer that I might prove my parents' predictions wrong. Not so much that I feared the doom itself - doom is just the hind end of living, after all - but to see the two who birthed me confounded."
Author: Carol Berg
8. "Our heroes have arrived, then," the stranger said, his voice a soft, bubbly murmur."Excuse me?" Poison queries.The odd creature put down his rod in a little wooden cradle that rested next to him and got up from the edge of the jetty. He looked them over with his vast, yellowish eyes."Hmm," he said gloomily. "You don't seem a bad bunch." He jostled past them and began to shuffle back towards his house. "At least you're not the typical muscle-bound warrior, beautiful sorceress, and amusing thief sidekick. By the waters, did that become stale fast."
Author: Chris Wooding
9. "Insa, cand au trecut de primele suburbii ale Berlinului si Humboldt si-a inchipuit cum Gauss a cercetat corpurile ceresti prin telescopul sau in tot acest timp - corpuri ceresti ale caror orbite pot fi descrise in formule simple -, n-a mai fost in stare sa spuna care dintre ei doi a ramas acasa si care a colindat lumea."
Author: Daniel Kehlmann
10. "Vida Winter's appearance was not calculated for concealment. She was an ancient queen, sorceress or goddess. Her stiff figure rose regally out of a profusion of fat purple and red cushions. Draped around her shoulders, the folds of the turquoise-and-green cloth that had cloaked her body did not soften the rigidity of her frame. Her bright copper hair had been arranged into an elaborate confection of twists, curls and coils. Her face, as intricately lined as a map, was powdered white and finished with bold scarlet lipstick. In her lap, her hands were a cluster of rubies, emeralds and white, bony knuckles; only her nails, unvarnished, cut short and square like my own, struck an incongruous tone."
Author: Diane Setterfield
11. "En todos los amaneceres hay un momento en que la luz flota y la magia es posible. Lacreación contuvo el aliento."
Author: Douglas Adams
12. "Que comience el cuento de hadas una mañana de invierno, en tal caso, con una gota recién caída en la nieve marfileña: una gota tan brillante como un rubí bien cortado, roja como una solitaria mancha de clarete en un puño de encaje. Y lo que aquí se sigue, por consiguiente, es que el mal acecha detrás de cada ventana rota, maquinando malicia y encantamiento; mientras que detrás de los postigos cerrados los justos duermen sus sueños a esta temprana hora en la Ribera. Pronto despertarán para ocuparse de sus quehaceres; y uno, tal vez, será tan adorable como el día y estará armado, como lo están los justos, para enfrentarse a un triunfo predestinado..."
Author: Ellen Kushner

Author: Gennifer Albin
16. "A muchos el universo les parece honrado; las gentes honestas tienen los ojos castrados. Por eso temen la obscenidad. No sienten ninguna angustia cuando oyen el grito del gallo ni cuando se pasean bajo un cielo estrellado. Cuando se entregan 'a los placeres de la carne' lo hacen a condición de que sean insípidos."
Author: Georges Bataille
17. "Once she exclaimed, "But I always thought that sorceresses were evil!""What do you mean 'evil'?"Lynet has never considered the question. "You know," she said, after a moment, "unfriendly to people.""People!" repeated Morgana derisively. "As if humans were all that mattered. Just once I'd like to see people judged by how friendly they are to sorceresses."
Author: Gerald Morris

20. "Cand o sa cresti, o sa vrei sa fii fericit. Deocamdata nu te gandesti la asa ceva si tocmai de-asta esti. Cand te vei gandi, cand vei vrea sa fii fericit, nu vei mai fi. Niciodata! Poate niciodata... M-ai auzit? Niciodata. Cu cat mai mare va fi dorinta ta de a fi fericit, cu atat mai nefericit o sa fii. Fericirea nu e ceva care se cucereste. Sa nu crezi. Fericirea ori e, ori nu e."
Author: José Saramago

"I'll let you know."The hero and the sorceress walked back up the path arm in arm."

26. "Así como localizamos en el cuerpo de una persona todas las posibilidades de su vida, el recuerdo de los seres que conoce y a quienes acaba de dejar, o a los que va a unirse, así yo, si al enterarme por Francisca de que la señora de Guermantes iría a pie a almorzar a casa de la princesa de Parma, la veía, a eso de mediodía, bajar de su casa con su traje de raso claro, sobre el cual su rostro era del mismo matiz, como una nube a la puesta del sol, lo que ante mí veía eran todos los placeres del barrio de Saint-Germain contenidos en aquel pequeño volumen como en una concha, entre aquellas bruñidas valvas de sonrosado nácar."
Author: Marcel Proust
27. "Tu precisas-te entreter... Para isso escrever; isto é, trabalhar. Mas, meu caro, «entreter» significa passar tempo. Ora o tempo passa acelerado em demasia; não necessita de impulsos. Os homens deviam procurar «entreter» o tempo, e não entreterem-se a si... Eu é isso que faço... Penso no passado, revivo os dias que passaram... Assim, levanto uma barreira entre o passado e o futuro. O futuro é porém um óptimo saltador... salta todas as barreiras, vai-se tornando no presente e eu pouco resultado alcanço... Escreves para não te aborreceres... Ah! como seria feliz se me conseguisse aborrecer!..."
Author: Mário De Sá Carneiro

30. "Algunos piensan que hay que sentirse a disgusto, que en la vida debe haber "días nulos" para apreciar mejor la riqueza de instantes de dicha y "beneficiarse de lo agradable del contraste". Pero ¿son sinceros los que afirman cansarse de una felicidad duradera? ¿De qué clase de felicidad hablan? ¿De la euforia que degenera en aburrimiento, de los placeres que decaen, de los goces que languidecen?."
Author: Matthieu Ricard
31. "Las pasiones humanas son un misterio, a los niños le pasa lo mismo que a los mayores. Los que se dejan llevar por ellas no puede explicárselas, y los que no las han vivido, no pueden comprenderlas. Hay hombres que se juegan la vida para subir a una montaña. Nadie, ni siquiera ellos, puede explicar realmente por qué. Otros se arruinan para conquistar el corazón de una persona que no quiere saber nada de ellos. Otros se destruyen a sí mismos por no saber resistir los placeres de la mesa... o de la botella. Algunos pierden cuanto tienen para ganar en un juego de azar, o lo sacrifican todo a una idea fija que jamás podrá realizarse. Unos cuantos creen que solo serán felices en un lugar distinto, y recorren el mundo durante toda su vida. Y unos pocos no descansan hasta que consiguen ser poderosos. En resumen: hay tantas pasiones distintas como hombres distintos hay."
Author: Michael Ende
32. "...cineva care stie a iubi cu adevarat poate experimenta voluptatea oricat de neinsemnata ar fi atingerea trupului celuilalt. Ii explicasem atunci ca, pentru mine, posesiunea e mult mai neinteleasa si mai complicata decat se pare. E foarte greu sa ai ceva cu adevarat, sa-l capeti sau sa-l cuceresti. Mai mult ne inchipuim ca posedam decat posedam."
Author: Mircea Eliade
33. "Poate nu staruim îndeajuns asupra faptului ca Ierusalimul ceresc nu va fi alta lume ci tot aceasta, dezvrajita, cu alte sensuri si valori, la alte niveluri de curatie si intensitate, dar nu rupta de imagistica proprie fapturilor create dupa chipul si asemanarea divinitatii."
Author: Nicolae Steinhardt
34. "Art creates an incomparable and unique effect, and, having done so, passes on to other things. Nature, upon the other hand, forgetting that that imitation can be made the sincerest form of insult, keeps on repeating this effect until we all become absolutely wearied of it."
Author: Oscar Wilde

42. "Hayatimizin, birtakim ehemmiyetsiz teferruatin oyuncagi oldugunu, çünkü asil hayatin teferruattan ibaret bulundugunu görüyordum. bizim mantigimizla hayatin mantigi asla birbirine uymuyordu. bir kadin, trenin penceresinden disari bakabilir, bu sirada gözüne bir kömür parçasi kaçar, o ehemmiyet vermeden bunu ovusturur ve bu minimini hadise dünyanin en güzel gözlerinden birini kör edebilirdi. Yahut bir kiremit, hafif bir rüzgarla yerinden oynayarak, devrin gipta ettigi bir kafayi parçalayabilirdi. göz mü mühim kömür parçasi mi, kiremit mi mühim kafa mi diye düsünmek nasil aklimiza gelmiyorsa ve bütün bunlari nasil hiç mütalaa yürütmeden kabule mecbursak, hayatin daha baska türlü birçok cilvelerine de ayni tevekkülle katlanmaya mecburduk."
Author: Sabahattin Ali
43. "- Que quieres de ese hombre?- pregunto de repente la nodriza.- La verdad - respondio el general.- Conoces muy bien la verdad.- No la conozco - dijo el en voz ata, sin preocuparse por el servicio, que habia interrumpido abajo la colocacion de las flores y miraba hacia arriba. Volvieron a bajar la mirada inmediatamente, con un gesto mecanico y continuaron con sus quehaceres- La verdad es precisamente lo que no conozco.- Pero conoces la realidad- observo la nodriza con un tono agudo, casi agresivo.- La realidad no es lo mismo que la verdad- respondio el general- La realidad son solo detalles."
Author: Sándor Márai

Es cosa importantísima, aunque no sea sino ayudarse unos a otros con sus oraciones, ¡cuánto más que hay muchas más ganancias! Y no sé yo por qué no se ha de permitir que quien comenzare de veras a amar a Dios y a servirle, deje de tratar con algunas personas sus placeres y trabajos, que de todo tienen los que tienen oración."
Author: Teresa Of Ávila
48. "Mas aunque el señor de la vida te proteja y la enfermedad te respete, en medio de los placeres sabrá encontrate la vejez, y entonces tú, el más hermoso de los sakias, marcharás como un cadáver, buscando reclinar tu cabeza en la almohada eterna"

49. "Sincere--that was the hell of it. From a distance, one's adversaries seemed fiends, but with a closer view, one saw the sincerity and it was as great as one's own. Perhaps Satan was the sincerest of the lot."

50. "She began to take exercise far too late, embarking on tiny cycling tours to music festivals, or flower shows, or doing the rounds of churches – there were so many spires in her uninspiring adopted home. Three kids, one episiotomy, two continents, many phobias, lots of depressions. Old fat lady's underwear. It was all a curse upon cycling, which she'd taken up for what reason? Believe it or not, not even the bulbous seventies there were still bulbous, middle-aged women such as she, who thought that the principle of cycling meant something. They cycled and they ate in health-food restaurants like Cranks or Ceres, their cussedness aimed at appeasing the Earth Goddess herself. They almost fucking overdosed on grated carrot; while sipping fucking prune juice. They invented being environmentally-conscious, with their vegetable-buying co-operatives which gave them an excuse to put gumboots on in town."
