On leur doit bien cette compensation, n'est-ce pas ? De cette manière, ils continueront de sourire et nous garderons notre bonne conscience."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "De ahí su teoría del retrovisor… Y es que había observado muchas veces el cuerpo humano y decía que nos faltaba insertarnos un retrovisor para ver qué había detrás nuestro. Consideraba que no tenía sentido que siempre miráramos adelante sin saber las oportunidades que hay detrás…Ella opinaba que lo que nos precede tiene la clave de lo que nos acontecerá…Decía que le parecía increíble que todos fuéramos por la calle con ese cuerpo humano sin retrovisor...."

5. "Je comprends. On a placé ta froide main dans la main du vassal insolent, décoré des pouvoirs du maître ; la royale procuration, sanctionnée par l'officieux chapelain de Son Excellence, a réuni aux yeux du monde deux êtres inconnus l'un à l'autre. Je suis au fait de ces cérémonies. Et toi, ton coeur, ta tête, ta vie, marchandés par entremetteurs, tout a été vendu au plus offrant ; une couronne de reine t'a faite esclave pour jamais ; et cependant ton fiancé, enseveli dans les délices d'une cour, attend nonchalamment que sa nouvelle épouse... ( RAZETTA )"
Author: Alfred De Musset

9. "Des hommes qui ont vécu longtemps d'un grand amour, puis en furent privés, se lassent parfois de leur noblesse solitaire. Ils se rapprochent humblement de la vie, et, d'un amour médiocre, font leur bonheur. Ils ont trouvé doux d'abdiquer, de se faire serviles, et d'entrer dans la paix des choses. L'esclave fait son orgueil de la braise du maître.(Terre des Hommes, ch. VI)"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
10. "La guerre, c'est la discipline. La sujétion maximale. L'esclavage. C'est l'une des situations où l'homme est le plus soumis à l'homme et a le moins d'issues pour y échapper. Il est empoigné. Réquisitionné. Ballotté par des ordres mécaniques. Objet d'un sadisme sans réplique. Exposé à l'humiliation ou au feu. Numéroté. Broyé. Astreint à la corvée. Pris dans des mouvements collectifs très lents, trè...s obscurs, parfaitement indéchiffrables, qui, au plus naturellement rebelle, ne laissent d'autre choix que de se plier. La guerre c'est la circonstance, par excellence, où joue ce pouvoir de laisser vivre et de faire mourir qui est, selon les bons philosophes, le propre du pouvoir absolu. L'homme de guerre c'est le dernier des hommes, c'est-à-dire l'esclave absolu.(Réflexions sur la Guerre, le Mal et la fin de l'Histoire)"
Author: Bernard Henri Lévy
11. "Los resultados que obtenemos en un deporte, en el estudio de determinada materia, en oratoria, en debates y hasta en relaciones humanas y amorosas están determinados por nuestras últimas experiencias. El que sufrió un revés, cree erróneamente que siempre será así y mantiene esa etiqueta. Es una ley de psicología: toda información nueva, al penetrar en la mente, tiende a sustituir la información antigua relacionada con el mis tema. Así, la clave para ser diestro en algo no es sólo practicar cuando sale bien sino intentarlo una y otra vez cuando sale mal… Un hombrevale no por los triunfos que ha acumulado sino por las veces que se ha levantado de sus fracasos."
Author: Carlos Cuauhtémoc Sánchez
12. "Iz," Alec said tiredly. "It's not like it's one big bad thing. It's a lot of little invisible things. When Magnus and I were traveling, and I'd call from the road, Dad never asked how he was. When I get up to talk in Clave meetings, no one listens, and I don't know if that's because I'm young or if it's because of something else. I saw Mom talking to a friend about her grandchildren and the second I walked into the room they shut up. Irina Cartwright told me it was a pity no one would ever inherit my blue eyes now." He shrugged and looked toward Magnus, who took a hand off the wheel for a moment to place it on Alec's. "It's not like a stab wound you can protect me from. It's a million little paper cuts every day."
Author: Cassandra Clare
13. "I am one of the Clave. It's in my blood and bones. So tell me, if you're so sure this wasn't my fault, why is it that the first thought in my mind when I saw Abbadon wasn't for my fellow warriors but for you?" His other hand came up; he was holding her face, prisoned between his palms. "I know-I knew-Alec wasn't acting like himself. I knew something was wrong. But all I could think about was you..."
Author: Cassandra Clare
14. "Why can't I go to Idris with you, then?Because it's not safe for you thereO and it's safe for me here? I've been nearly killed almost a dozen times in the past month.That's because Valentine has been concentrating on the two Mortal Instruments that were here. He's going to shift his focus to Idris now. We all know it--We're hardly as certain of anything as all that. And the Clave wants to meet Clarissa. You know that, Jace.The Clave can screw itself."
Author: Cassandra Clare
15. "He is a Shadowhunter," said Jocelyn. "His loyalty will be to Clave and Covenant.""He's my friend," said Magnus coldly. "His loyalty is to me."
Author: Cassandra Clare
16. "Most human subjugates are young," said Will. "Vampires like to acquire their subjugates when they're youthful—prettier to look at, and less chance of diseased blood. And they'll live a bit longer, though not much." He looked pleased with himself. "Most of the rest of the Enclave wouldn't be able to pass convincingly as a handsome young human subjugate—""Because the rest of us all are hideous, are we?" Jem inquired, looking amused."
Author: Cassandra Clare
17. "While the Clave disapproves of trespassers, oddly they take an even darker view of beheading and skinning people. They're peculiar that way."
Author: Cassandra Clare
18. "Malachi scowled. "I don't remember the Clave inviting you into the Glass City, Magnus Bane.""They didn't," Magnus said. "Your wards are down.""Really?" the Consul's voice dripped sarcasm. "I hadn't noticed."Magnus looked concerned. "That's terrible. Someone should have told you." He glanced at Luke. "Tell him the wards are down."
Author: Cassandra Clare
19. "This time Magnus answered it, his voice booming through the tiny entryway. "WHO DARES DISTURB MY REST?"Jace looked almost nervous. "Jace Wayland. Remember? I'm from the Clave.""Oh, yes." Magnus seemed to have perked up. "Are you the one with the blue eyes?""He means Alec," Clary said helpfully."No. My eyes are usually described as golden," Jace told the intercom. "And luminous.""Oh, you're that one." Magnus sounded disappointed. If Clary hadn't been so upset, she would have laughed. "I suppose you'd better come up."
Author: Cassandra Clare
20. "We shouldn't," protested Isabelle. "The Clave has a plan.""The Clave has the collective intelligence of a pineapple," said Jace.Alec blinked up at them. "Jace is right."Isabelle turned on her brother. "What do you know? You weren't even paying attention.""I was," Alec said, injured. "I said Jace was right.""Yeah, but there's like a 90% chance of me being right most of the time, so that's not proof you were listening," said Jace. "That's just a good guess."
Author: Cassandra Clare
21. "Catching sight of himself in the long mirrors that ran along the walls, he stiffened in shock...His eyes were surrounded by black shadows, his shirt smeared with dried blood and filthy mud..."Admiring yourself?" The Inquisitor's voice cut through his reverie. "You won't look so pretty when the Clave gets through with you.""You do seem obsessed with my look...Could it be that you're attracted to me?""Don't be revolting...You could be my son."
Author: Cassandra Clare
22. "There is a coldness to the Clave, it is true. We are dust and shadows. But you are like the heroes of ancient times, like Achilles and Jason.""Achilles was murdered with a poisonedarrow, and Jason died alone, killed by his own rotting ship. Such is the fate of heroes; the Angel knows why anyone would want to be one."
Author: Cassandra Clare
23. "Demons," drawled the blond boy, tracing the word on the air with his finger. "Religiously defined as hell's denizens, the servants of Satan, but understood here, for the purposes of the Clave, to be any malevolent spirit whose origin is outside our own home dimension -"
Author: Cassandra Clare
24. "So you're now an official member of Enclave Three. You weirdo."I snorted. "I'm a weirdo? You're a werewolf.""I suggest you say that with respect, Parker.""Or what?""Or I'll have to bite you." His lips widened into a grin of heart-stopping proportions. I guessed itwould have been pretty effective on him in werewolf form, too."
Author: Chloe Neill
25. "Uno empieza con las pajas y llega a las orgías. Uno fuma un poco de hierba y acaba metiéndose caballo. Es esta cultura nuestra de lo más grande, lo más fuerte, lo más rápido y lo mejor. La palabra clave es progresar.En América, si tu adicción no se renueva y mejora constantemente, eres un perdedor."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
26. "I live in Topanga Canyon, which is like a faux-rustic enclave in Los Angeles. I love the sounds of all the critters outside - the frogs, owls, crickets, and birds. Some of the birds around here are pretty accomplished musicians. You can learn a lot from them."
Author: Cliff Martinez
27. "Vaughn, escucha. Tienes razón, te amé. Amé es la palabra clave aquí. Estoy enamorado de Lake. Nunca haría nada para lastimarla. Y tú estando aquí, eso la lastimaría. Por eso quiero que te vayas. Lo siento. Sé que esto no es lo que quieres escuchar. Pero tú tomaste tu decisión, y yo seguí adelante después de esa decisión. Ahora, tú necesitas seguir adelante. Por favor, haznos un favor a los dos y vete."

31. "Que toda la historia de los pasadizos era una ridícula invención o creencia mía y que en todo caso había un solo túnel, oscuro y solitario: el mío, el túnel en que había transcurrido mi infancia, mi juventud, toda mi vida. Y en uno de esos trozos transparentes del muro de piedra yo había visto a esta muchacha y había creído ingenuamente que venía por otro túnel paralelo al mío, cuando en realidad pertenecía al ancho mundo, al mundo sin límites de los que no viven en túneles; y quizá se había acercado por curiosidad a una de mis extrañas ventanas y había entrevisto el espectáculo de mi insalvable soledad, o le había intrigado el lenguaje mudo, la clave de mi cuadro. Y entonces, mientras yo avanzaba siempre por mi pasadizo, ella vivía afuera su vida normal, la vida agitada que llevan esas gentes que viven afuera, esa vida curiosa y absurda donde en que hay bailes y fiestas y alegría y frivolidad."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
32. "[...] creces, experimentas, aprendes, crees saber cómo funcionan las cosas, estás convencido de haber encontrado la clave que te permitirá entender y enfrentarte a todo. Pero después, cuando menos te lo esperas, cuando el equilibrio parece perfecto, cuando crees haber dado todas las respuestas o, al menos, la mayor parte de ellas, surge una nueva adivinanza. Y no sabes qué responder. Te pilla por sorpresa. Lo único que consigues entender es que el amor no te pertenece..."
Author: Federico Moccia
33. "Quant à moi, j'étais tout à fait tranquille sur mon sort. Moi aussi, j'aimais passionnément mon art ; mais je savais dès le commencement de ma carrière que je resterais, au sens littéral du mot, un ouvrier de l'art. En revanche, je suis fier de ne pas avoir enfoui, comme l'esclave paresseux, ce que m'avait donné la nature, et, au contraire, de l'avoir augmenté considérablement. Et si on loue mon jeu impeccable, si l'on vante ma technique, tout cela je le dois au travail ininterrompu, à la conscience nette de mes forces, à l'éloignement que j'eus toujours pour l'ambition, la satisfaction de soi-même et la paresse, conséquence de cette satisfaction."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
34. "La femme mariée est une esclave qu'il faut savoir mettre sur un trône."
Author: Honoré De Balzac
35. "He seemed to savor telling the story, as if he'd memorized its details especially for her: how three or four days after she and Lulu had left the general's redoubt, the photographers began showing up, first one or two whom the soldiers ferreted out of the jungle and imprisoned, then more, too many to capture or even count-they were superb hiders, crouching like monkeys in the trees, burying themselves i shallow pits camouflaging inside bunches of leaves. Assassins has never managed to locate the general with any precision, but the photographers made it look easy: scores of them surging across the border without visas, curled in baskets and wine casks, rolled up in rugs, juddering over unpaved roads in the backs of trucks and eventually surrounding the general's enclave, which he didn't dare leave."
Author: Jennifer Egan
36. "On our last mission - our "final exam" - we were airlifted to a remote region, and we parachuted directly into a hostile enclave. We had to subdue the enemy using hand-to-hand tactics like tae kwon do and pugil sticks, cut their hair in styles appropriate to their particular face shapes, and give them perms."
Author: Mark Leyner
37. "Enclave life becomes very tense, Even when they do elect a leader, the factions remain, with the threat of splitting off."
Author: Mary Douglas

Author: Mikhail Bakunin
39. "Loin d'être aux lois d'un homme en esclave asservie,Mariez-vous, ma soeur, à la philosophie."
Author: Molière
40. "We are swimming upstream against a great torrent of disorganization...In this, our main obligation is to establish arbitrary enclaves of order and system...It is the greatest possible victory to be, to continue to be, and to have been. No defeat can deprive us of the success of having existed for some moment of time in a universe that seems indifferent to us.This is no defeatism...The declaration of our own nature and the attempt to build up an enclave of organization in the face of nature's overwhelming tendency to disorder is an insolence against the gods and the iron necessity that they impose. Here lies tragedy, but here lies glory too...All this represents the manner in which I believe I have been able to add something positive to the pessimism of...the existensialists. I have not replaced the gloom of existence by a philosophy which is optimistic in any Pollyanna sense, but...with a positive attitude toward the universe and toward our life in it."
Author: Norbert Wiener

Author: Pepper Winters
46. "(...)ils ont des siècles d'esclavage derrière eux. (...) Je parle des blancs. Ça fait deux siècles qu'ils sont esclaves des idées reçues, des préjugés sacro-saints pieusement transmis de père en fils, (...). J'essaie de me dominer pendant qu'on m'explique une fois de plus que "vous ne pouvez pas comprendre, vous n'avez pas dix-sept millions de Noirs en France". C'est vrai : mais nous avons cinquante millions de français, ce qui n'est pas jojo non plus."
Author: Romain Gary
47. "Dès l'origine de l'humanité, leur privilège biologique a permis aux mâles de s'affirmer seuls comme sujets souverains; ils n'ont jamais abdiqué ce privilège (...) Condamnée à jouer le rôle de l'Autre, la femme était aussi condamnée à ne posséder qu'une puissance précaire: esclave ou idole ce n'est jamais elle qui a choisi son lot."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
48. "Existe una musa, pero no esperes que baje revoloteando y esparza polvos mágicos creativos sobre tu máquina de escribir u ordenador. Siéntate a escribir y a leer muchísimo porque esa es la clave del éxito."

49. "All that remains of the garden city in our own day are traffic-free enclaves, islands in a sea of traffic where the pedestrian leads a legally protected by languishing existence, comparable to that of the North American Indians on their reservations...In reality the modern urbanist regards the city as a gigantic centre of production, geared to the efficient transport of workers and goods, to the accommodation of people and the storage of wares, to industrial and commercial activity. The rest, that is to say creativity, life, is optional and comes under the heading of recreation and leisure activities."
Author: Tom McDonough
