1. "Slavery is such an atrocious debasement of human nature, that its very extirpation, if not performed with solicitous care, may sometimes open a source of serious evils. The unhappy man who has been treated as a brute animal, too frequently sinks beneath the common standard of the human species. The galling chains, that bind his body, do also fetter his intellectual faculties, and impair the social affections of his heart… To instruct, to advise, to qualify those, who have been restored to freedom, for the exercise and enjoyment of civil liberty… and to procure for their children an education calculated for their future situation in life; these are the great outlines of the annexed plan, which we have adopted.[For the Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery, 1789]"
Author: Benjamin Franklin

Author: Bill Johnson

"Me siento igual a él; pese a la distancia en rango y riqueza que nos separa, comprendo el lenguaje de su semblante y de sus gestos: hay algo en mi corazón y en mi cerebro, en mi sangre y en mis nervios, que me conecta mentalmente con él. [...] Lo único que eso significa es que tenemos ciertos gustos y sentimientos comunes. Debo, pues, repetirme hasta la saciedad que nunca estaremos juntos. Y reconocer que, mientras sea capaz de pensar y de respirar, no dejaré de amarle."
Author: Charlotte Brontë

10. "This is a great trap of the twentieth century: on one side is the logic of the market, where we like to imagine we all start out as individuals who don't owe each other anything. On the other is the logic of the state, where we all begin with a debt we can never truly pay. We are constantly told that they are opposites, and that between them they contain the only real human possibilities. But it's a false dichotomy. States created markets. Markets require states. Neither could continue without the other, at least, in anything like the forms we would rec­ognize today."
Author: David Graeber

Author: Edward Humes

Author: Gail Carriger

Author: Habiburrahman El Shirazy
18. "Hay mil podando las ramas del mal por uno que golpea en la raíz, y puede que aquel que otorgue la mayor cantidad de tiempo y de dinero a los necesitados sea el que más haga con su modo de vida para producir la miseria que trata de aliviar en vano. Sería como el piadoso dueño de esclavos que dedica las ganancias del décimo esclavo a comprar la libertad de un domingo para los demás. Algunos muestran su amabilidad con los pobres empleándolos en sus cocinas. ¿No serían más amables si se emplearan allí a sí mismos? Os jactáis de gastar la décima parte de vuestros ingresos en la caridad; tal vez deberíais gastar las nueve décimas partes y acabar con ella. La sociedad recupera entonces sólo una décima parte de la propiedad. ¿Se debe a la generosidad del que la posee o a la negligencia de los oficiales de justicia?"
Author: Henry David Thoreau
19. "Debemos andar a ciegas entre tanta suciedad y tanto disparate. Y no tenemos a nadie que nos indique el camino; nuestra única guía es la nostalgia."

20. "Non posso più ascoltare tacendo. Devo parlarvi con i mezzi che ho a disposizione. Voi mi trafiggete l'anima.Io sono tra l'agonia e la speranza. Non ditemi che è troppo tardi, che questo prezioso sentimento è svanito per sempre. Vi offro di nuovo il mio cuore, vi appartiene ancor più di quando otto anni e mezzo fa voi quasi me lo spezzaste. Non dite per carità che l'uomo dimentica più della donna, che il suo amore è più rapido a morire. Non ho mai amato nessuna all'infuori di voi. Posso essere stato ingiusto, forse debole e offeso, ma incostante mai. Solo voi mi avete condotto a Bath. Penso e faccio progetti solo per voi. Non ve ne siete accorta? Possibile che non indoviniate i miei desideri? Non avrei atteso neanche questi dieci giorni se avessi conosciuto i vostri sentimenti. Devo andare senza conoscere il mio destino ma tornerò qui o vi seguirò non appena possibile. Una parola, uno sguardo saranno sufficienti a farmi entrare in casa di vostro padre questa sera o mai più."
Author: Jane Austen
21. "Leonard and Virginia married in August 1912. Virginia was 30. Soon after her marriage she suVered another breakdown and her mental health declined sporadically over the following year, culminating in a suicide attempt in September 1913.

Author: Jane Goldman

There was a certain enjoyment to be had in watching two extremely attractive girls trying to split each other's skulls open with wooden swords."The 'fighting' part or the 'ladies' part?" Will replied with a grin. Halt looked at him and shook his head. "Definitely the 'ladies,'" he said. "There's no debate about the fighting.'"~Halt & Will about Evanlyn and Alyss"
Author: John Flanagan
25. "…such criticism and mockery are largely beside the point. All religious belief is a function of nonrational faith. And faith, by its very definition, tends to be impervious to to intellectual argument or academic criticism. Polls routinely indicate, moreover, that nine out of ten Americans believe in God—most of us subscribe to one brand of religion or another. Those who would assail The Book of Mormon should bear in mind that its veracity is no more dubious than the veracity of the Bible, say, or the Qur'an, or the sacred texts of most other religions. The latter texts simply enjoy the considerable advantage of having made their public debut in the shadowy recesses of the ancient past, and are thus much harder to refute."
Author: Jon Krakauer
26. "I emphasize teachers because they are largely left out of the debate. None of the bombastic reports that come from Washington and think tanks telling us what needs to be 'fixed' - I hate such a mechanistic word, as if our schools were automobile engines - ever asks the opinions of teachers."
Author: Jonathan Kozol
27. "Supongo que debería haberte advertido de que tengo una ligera vena posesiva. Ash"

29. "I touched my lips to hers again, and this time, it was a very different sort of kiss. It was six years' worth of kissing, her lips coming to life under mine, tasting of orange and of desire. Her fingers ran through my sideburns and into my hair before linking around my neck, alive and cool on my warm skin. I was wild and tame and pulled into shreds and crushed into being all at once. For once in my human life, my mind didn't wander to compose a song lyric or store the moment for later reflection. For once in my life, I was here and nowhere else. -Sam"
Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Author: Mark Skousen
31. "What is the role of intellectuals in Europe? There's this debate in which all speakers do not appear to me to even be intellectuals. Why is Martin Sommers an intellectual? It is a political journalist who writes mediocre pieces. If that is sufficient to call yourself a 'European intellectual" then the question of the debate has already become rhetorical."
Author: Martinus Hendrikus Benders
32. "Mutlu olabilmek için her gün bir miktar edebiyatla ilgilenmem gerekiyor."

Author: Rafael Sabatini

Author: Samuel Adams

41. "Lo mejor es que no le parezco osco ni reservado. Elaine y yo pasamos mucho tiempo juntos; supongo que si no tuviese una edad tan grotesca, diría que es mi chica. Sin embargo no está mal que sólo sea una amiga especial; a veces es mejor que una novia. Nos ahorramos muchos de los problemas que trae aparejados el noviazgo, y, aunque sé que nadie por debajo de los cincuenta me creerá, en ocasiones las cenizas son mejores que una auténtica fogata. Es extraño, pero cierto."
Author: Stephen King

45. "Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon, than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel."
Author: Thomas Paine

47. "Why did you do it?" I say. "You want me dead. You were willing to do it yourself! What changed?" He presses his lips together and doesn't look away, not for a long time. Then he opens his mouth, hesitates, and finally says, " I can't be in anyone's debt. Okay? The idea that I owed you something made me sick. I would wake up in the middle of the night feeling like I was going to vomit. Indebted to a stiff? It's ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. And I couldn't have it."
