1. "Whoever John Stoner is, he is no magician. He could not have made you into a hero if you had not already possessed the raw material." -Concordia Glade to Ambrose Wills."
Author: Amanda Quick
2. "Concordia experienced a profound rush of relief. He was safely home. Now, perhaps she would be able to shake off the feeling of dread that has descended on her after he had left."
Author: Amanda Quick
3. "In high school, we barely brushed against Ogden Nash, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, or any of the other so-unserious writers who delight everyone they touch. This was, after all, a very expensive and important school. Instead, I was force-fed a few of Shakespeare's Greatest Hits, although the English needed translation, the broad comedy and wrenching drama were lost, and none of the magnificently dirty jokes were ever explained. (Incidentally, Romeo and Juliet, fully appreciated, might be banned in some U.S. states.) This was the Concordance again, and little more. So we'd read all the lines aloud, resign ourselves to a ponderous struggle, and soon give up the plot completely."
Author: Bob Harris
4. "I have now been married ten years. I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth. I hold myself supremely blest - blest beyond what language can express; because I am my husband's life as fully as he is mine. No woman was ever nearer to her mate than I am: ever more absolutely bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. I know no weariness of my Edward's society: he knows none of mine, any more than we each do the pulsation of the heart that beats in our separate bosoms; consequently, we are ever together. To be together is for us to be at once free as in solitude, as gay as in company. We talk, I believe, all day long: to talk to each other is but more animated and an audible thinking. All my confidence is bestowed on him, all his confidence is devoted to me; we are precisely suited in character - perfect concord is the result."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
5. "Olha as minhas mãos são finas brancas macias, quando as junto Deus concorda logo com tudo."
Author: Chimo

Author: Christian Lous Lange
8. "Concord, California was a great place to grow up."
Author: Dave Brubeck
9. "É extraordinário! Neste abençoado país todos os políticos têm «imenso talento». A oposição confessa sempre que os ministros, que ela cobre de injúrias, tem, à parte os disparates que fazem, um «talento de primeira ordem»! Por outro lado a maioria admite que a oposição, a quem ela contantemente recrimina pelos disparates que fez, está cheia de «robustíssimos talentos»! De resto todo o mundo concorda que o país é uma choldra. E resulta portanto este facto supracómico: um país governado «com imenso talento», que é de todos na Europa, segundo o consenso unânime, o mais estùpidamente governado! Eu proponho isto, a ver: que, como os talentos sempre falham, se experimentem uma vez os imbecis!"
Author: Eça De Queirós
10. "The policy of the emperors and the senate, as far as it concerned religion, was happily seconded by the reflections of the enlightened, and by the habits of the superstitious, part of their subjects. The various modes of worship, which prevailed in the Roman world, were all considered by the people, as equally true; by the philosopher, as equally false; and by the magistrate, as equally useful. And thus toleration produced not only mutual indulgence, but even religious concord."
Author: Edward Gibbon
11. "Do you know why I gave my daughter permission to marry your father?""No," Bailey says. It is not a topic that has ever been discussed in his presence, though Caroline once told him in secret she heard it was something of a scandal. Even almost twenty years later, his father never sets foot in his grandmother's house, nor does she ever come out to Concord."Because she would have run off with him regardless," she says. "That was what she wished. It would not have been my choice for her, but a child should not have their choices dictated for them...Follow your dreams, Bailey," she says. "Be they Harvard or something else entirely. No matter what that father of yours says, or how loudly he might say it. He forgets that he was someone's dream once, himself."
Author: Erin Morgenstern
12. "Ho sempre pensato che fino ai diciotto anni, niente importi», disse Mary. «È vero», concordò Abe. «E dopo è uguale»."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
13. "..."para intentar ser mejores o más que los otros y entender equivocadamente que el mundo es una carrera de competidores a quienes hay que vencer sin saber que no tienen nada que demostrar a nadie, que solo la valía se la da uno mismo en tanto y cuanto esta en concordancia con los valores que nos permitan ser mejores personas, respetar a los demás y vivir en comprensión y tolerancia con el mundo"."
Author: F.J. Vizcarra
14. "Sigo com um olhar e concordo com um menear, apoio com um dispor e celebro com um sorriso."
Author: Filipe Russo
15. "Had you accepted that third counsel of the mighty spirit, you would have furnished all that man seeks on earth, that is: someone to bow down to, someone to take over his conscience, and a means for uniting everyone at last into a common, concordant, and incontestable anthill - for the need for universal union is the third and last torment of men."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
16. "I have traveled a good deal in Concord; and everywhere, in shops, and offices, and fields, the inhabitants have appeared to me to be doing penance in a thousand remarkable ways."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
17. "On Ponkawtasset, since, we took our way,Down this still stream we took our meadowy way,A poet wise has settled, whose fine rayDoth faintly shine on Concord's twilight day.Like those first stars, whose silver beams on high,Shining more brightly as the day goes by,Most travellers cannot at first descry,But eyes that wont to range the evening sky,And know celestial lights, do plainly see,And gladly hail them, numbering two or three;For lore that's deep must deeply studied be,As from deep wells men read star-poetry.These stars are never pal'd, though out of sight,But like the sun they shine forever bright;Aye, they are suns, though earth must in its flightPut out its eyes that it may see their light.Who would neglect the least celestial sound,Or faintest light that falls on earthly ground,If he could know it one day would be foundThat star in Cygnus whither we are bound,And pale our sun with heavenly radiance round?"
Author: Henry David Thoreau
18. "Let us settle ourselves, and work and wedge our feet downwards through the mud and slush of opinion and tradition, and pride and prejudice, appearance and delusion, through the alluvium which covers the globe, through poetry and philosophy and religion, through church and state, through Paris and London, through New York and Boston and Concord, till we come to a hard bottom that rocks in place which we can call reality and say, "This is and no mistake."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
19. "Couples are wholes and not wholes, what agrees disagrees, the concordant is discordant. From all things one and from one all things."
Author: Heraclitus
20. "Opposition brings concord. Out of discord comes the fairest harmony."
Author: Heraclitus
21. "He says, this silence of More's, it was never really silence, was it? It was loud with his treason; it was quibbling as far as quibbles would serve him, it was demurs and cavils, suave ambiguities. It was fear of plain words, or the assertion that plain words pervert themselves; More's dictionary, against our dictionary. You can have a silence full of words. A lute retains, in its bowl, the notes it has played. The viol, in its strings, holds a concord. A shriveled petal can hold its scent, a prayer can rattle with curses; an empty house, when the owners have gone out, can still be loud with ghosts."
Author: Hilary Mantel
22. "O amor é a concordância da necessidade com o sentimento, e a felicidade no casamento resulta de um entendimento perfeito das almas entre os esposos Disso decorre que, para ser feliz, um homem é obrigado a respeitar certas regras de honra e da delicadeza. Depois de se ter valido da lei social que consagra a necessidade, deve obedecer às leis secretas da natureza que fazem eclodir os sentimentos. Se coloca a sua felicidade em ser amado, é preciso que ame sinceramente: nada resiste a uma paixão verdadeira. Mas ser apaixonado é desejar sempre. Pode-se desejar sempre a própria mulher? Sim.b"
Author: Honoré De Balzac
23. "Man desires concord; but nature know better what is good for his species; she desires discord."
Author: Immanuel Kant
24. "- (...) Só falou nisso de a Vida ser um jogo e assim. Sabe como é.- A Vida é um jogo, meu rapaz. A Vida é um jogo que se joga seguindo as regras.- Pois é, senhor professor. Eu sei que é. Eu sei.Um jogo, uma ova. Raio de jogo. Se calhamos do lado onde estão todos os craques, está bem que é um jogo... Concordo que é. Mas se calhamos do outro lado, onde não há craques nenhuns, então onde é que está o jogo? Nada. Jogo coisa nenhuma."
Author: J.D. Salinger
25. "Cu siguranta, nu-l ura. Nu, ura trecuse cu mult timp in urma si cam tot de atunci se nascuse senzatia de rusine pentru ca avusese fata de el un sentiment care s-ar fi putut numi astfel. Respetul fata de el, generat de credinta ca avea calitati de pret, desi cu greu acceptat la inceput, incetase de la un timp a-l mai considera in neconcordanta cu simtamintele ei, iar acum respectul acesta crescuse, se modificase, devenise un soi de prietenie, datorita marturiilor ce-i fusesera atat de favorabile si datorita luminii atat de bune in care se plasase in ziua aceea. [...] Il respecta, il stima, ii era recunoscatoare, ii dorea numai binele, ar fi vrut doar sa stie cat dorea el ca binele acela sa fie legat de ea si in ce masura ar fi fost spre fericirea amandurora sa-si foloseasca puterile, pe care-si imagina ca inca le mai are, pentru a-l face sa-si reinnoiasca cererea."
Author: Jane Austen
26. "The best, most beautiful, and most perfect way that we have of expressing a sweet concord of mind to each other is by music."
Author: Jonathan Edwards
27. "God is with the vanquished, not with the victors! At a time when His Holiness, the infallible Pope of Christendom, is concluding a peace agreement, a Concordat, with the enemies of Christ, when the Protestant's are establishing a "German church" and censoring the Bible, we descendants of the old Jews, the forefathers of European culture, are the only legitimate German representatives of that culture. Thanks to inscrutable divine wisdom, we are physically incapable of betraying it to the heathen civilization of poison gases, to the ammonia-breathing, Germanic war god."
Author: Joseph Roth
28. "I did a film called Dracula and it was very nice because I had lots of trips to New York on Concorde."
Author: Julie Harris
29. "Do you still have the revolver you were going to shoot me with?" asked the old man on the telephone."Yes, I have it here.""How much ammunition?""No idea. How do I find out?"He explained. In the moonlight, she felt the bulges of the cartridges in the cylinder. "Six," she said."And you don't know how to use it?""No.""But you are American.""Ha-ha.""If you do as I say, and go about it cleverly, I hope you won't need it. Unless Cesare Carnevare crosses your path, in which case please be kind enough to shoot him.""How about the concordat?"He laughed. "Shoot him when no one's looking."
Author: Kai Meyer
30. "—Eso no es paz. La paz es más que ausencia de guerra. La paz es concordia. Armonía."
Author: Laini Taylor
31. "God,he'll kill me if he ever finds out I told you.But you need to know it, and it's not right to keep it from you.Lucy, Heath never planned to stay in Massachusetts for more than a few months.It was all because of you that he stayed.You're the reason he bought the house in Concord and eventually the Examiner. You're the reason he decided to live in New England instead of going back to the South."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
32. "I only brought you here tonight because you wanted it." His voice was soft and harsh at the same time. "I wouldn't care if I never set foot in Concord again.""But I grew up here.I'll need to visit occassionally." As his mouth concentrated on a particularly sensitive area of her neck,her head dropped to his shoulder, too heavy to support any longer. "It's not a bad little town-""You were the best thing about it.You were the only reason I stayed here so long."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
33. "Poor dull Concord. Nothing colorful has come through here since the Redcoats."
Author: Louisa May Alcott
34. "But Bachmann's efforts to strut her IQ were undermined by gaffes galore. In New Hampshire, she hailed the state for being "where the shot was heard round the world in Lexington and Concord." (That blast emanated from Massachusetts.) On June 27, the day of her official announcement in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, Bachmann proclaimed in a Fox News interview that "John Wayne was from Waterloo." (Wayne was in fact from Winterset, Iowa; serial killer John Wayne Gacy was from Waterloo.) From now on, her son Lucas razzed his mother, "you can't say George Washington was the first president unless we Google that shit first."
Author: Mark Halperin
35. "The bibliographer in the digital age returns to the revelatory practice of her medieval forebears. Librarians, like those scribes of the Middle Ages, do not merely keep and classify texts; they create them, in the form of online finding aids, CD-ROM concordances, and other electronic texts, not to mention paper study guides and published bibliographies."
Author: Matthew Battles
36. "If this letter system works, it should be reproducible and consistent. If this letter system works, it should be demonstrated in biblical narrative—with consistency. It has. It does. It will. For instance: Daniel interpreted the handwriting on the Babylonian wall. (Da 5:1-31) The question has always been, "What method would produce the same interpretation?" If you will pull out your Strong's Concordance and translate those same four words, you won't get the same results that Daniel got. Was Daniel using a different method than modern Christians? Yes, obviously."
Author: Michael Ben Zehabe
37. "Qu'est-ce qu'un chien, sinon une machine à aimer ? On lui présente un être humain, en lui donnant pour mission de l'aimer - et aussi disgracieux, pervers, déformé ou stupide soit-il, le chien l'aime. Cette caractéristique était si surprenante, si frappante pour les humains de l'ancienne race que la plupart - tous les témoignages concordent - en venaient à aimer leur chien en retour. le chien était donc une machine à aimer à effet d'entraînement - dont l'efficacité, cependant, restait limitée aux chiens, et ne s'étendait jamais aux autres hommes. (La possibilité d'une île, Danie l25,2)"
Author: Michel Houellebecq

Author: Nikolai Leskov
39. "He read of the Obelisk in the Place de la Concorde that weeps tears of granite in its lonely sunless exile and longs to be back by the hot, lotus-covered Nile."
Author: Oscar Wilde
40. "The wrought-iron gate squeaked as Lucas opened it. He lowered the rented bike down the stone steps and onto the sidewalk. To his right was the most famous Globe Hotel in Paris, disguised under another name. In front of the entrance five Curukians sat on mopeds. Lu-cas and his eighteen-month-old friend then shot out across the street and through the invisible beam of an-other security camera.He rode diagonally across the place de la Concorde and headed toward the river. It seemed only natural. The motorcycles trailed him. He pedaled fast across the Alex-andre III bridge and zipped past Les Invalides hospital. He tried to turn left at the Rodin Museum, but Goper rode next to him, blocking his escape."
Author: Paul Aertker
41. "...both wealth and concord decline as possessions become pursued and honored. And virtue perishes with them as well."
Author: Plato
42. "I went to Concord, a young woman from the backwoods, firm in belief that Emerson was the first of living men. He was the modern Moses who had talked with God apart and could interpret Him to us."
Author: Rebecca Harding Davis
43. "Reading's ability to beam you up to a different world is a good part of the reason why people like me do it in the first place---because dollar for dollar, hour per hour, it's the most expedient way to get from our proscribed little "here" to an imagined, intriguing there". Part time machine, part Concorde, part ejector seat, books are our salvation."
Author: Sara Nelson
44. "Cat priveste coordonatele intinse intre psihanaliza si filozofia lui Schopenhauer el nu numai ca a aparat intaietatea afectivitatii si importanta preponderenta a sexualitatii, dar a ghicit chiar mecanismul refularii; nu mi-au permis insa sa le cunosc doctrina. L-am citit pe Schopenhauer foarte tarziu. Pe Nietzsche, celalalt filosof ale carui intentii si puncte de vedere concorda adesea in maniera cea mai uimitoare cu rezultatele greu cucerite ale pishanalizei, l-am evitat mult timp tocmai din aceasta cauza; tin deci, mai putin la intaietate, dorind sa raman liber de orice prevenire."
Author: Sigmund Freud
45. "Were every one employed in points concordant to their natures, professions, and arts, commonwealths would rise up of themselves."
Author: Thomas Browne
46. "If there is a country in the world where concord, according to common calculation, would be least expected, it is America. Made up as it is of people from different nations, accustomed to different forms and habits of government, speaking different languages, and more different in their modes of worship, it would appear that the union of such a people was impracticable; but by the simple operation of constructing government on the principles of society and the rights of man, every difficulty retires, and all the parts are brought into cordial unison. There the poor are not oppressed, the rich are not privileged. Industry is not mortified by the splendid extravagance of a court rioting at its expense. Their taxes are few, because their government is just: and as there is nothing to render them wretched, there is nothing to engender riots and tumults."
Author: Thomas Paine
47. "Love, the future is thine. Death, I make use of thee, but I hate thee. Citizens, in the future there will be neither darkness nor thunderbolts; neither ferocious ignorance, nor bloody retaliation. As there will be no more Satan, there will be no more Michael. In the future no one will kill any one else, the earth will beam with radiance, the human race will love. The day will come, citizens, when all will be concord, harmony, light, joy and life; it will come, and it is in order that is may come that we are about to die."
Author: Victor Hugo
48. "By the sweet power of music: therefore the poet did feign that Orpheus drew trees, stones and floods; since nought so stockish, hard and full of rage, but music for the time doth change his nature. The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils; The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus: Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music."
Author: William Shakespeare
49. "I should go to Paris and jump off of the Eiffel Tower. If I took the Concorde, I could be dead three hours earlier."
Author: Woody Allen
50. "I'm going to kill myself. I should go to Paris and jump off the Eiffel Tower. I'll be dead. you know, in fact, if I get the Concorde, I could be dead three hours earlier, which would be perfect. Or wait a minute. It -- with the time change, I could be alive for six hours in New York but dead three hours in Paris. I could get things done, and I could also be dead."
Author: Woody Allen
