4. "Dichtung und Mythologie des Altertums deuten darauf hin, daß die Landwirtschaft einst als eine heilige Kunst geübt wurde. Bei uns aber wird sie mit einer unbekümmerten, nachlässigen Hast betrieben, die auf nichts anderes bedacht ist, als möglichst große Farmen zu besitzen und möglichst große Ernten einzubringen. [...] Geiz, Selbstsucht und die würdelose Angewohnheit, den Boden als Eigentum oder hauptsächlich als Mittel zum Erwerb von Eigentum zu betrachten, von der niemand unter uns sich ganz freisprechen kann, haben unsere Landschaft entstellt und unsere Landwirtschaft degradiert. Unser Farmer führt das denkbar niedrigste Leben. Er kennt die Natur nur als ihr Ausbeuter."
Author: Henry David Thoreau

10. "All these my exaltation of mind has borne along with it and kept alive through the succession of the years, while all around them the paths have vanished and those who trod them, and even the memory of those who trod them, are dead. Sometimes the fragment of landscape thus transported into the present will detach itself in such isolation from all associations that it floats uncertainly in my mind like a flowering Delos, and I am unable to say from what place, from what time - perhaps, quite simply, from what dream - it comes. But it is pre-eminently as the deepest layer of my mental soil, as the firm ground on which I still stand, that I regard the Meseglise and the Guermantes ways. It is because I believed in this and in people while I walked along those paths that the things and the people they made known to me are the only ones that I still take seriously and that still bring me joy."
Author: Marcel Proust
11. "O comportamento ritual não só revela realidades práticas e mundanas, é também um teatro vivo da psicologia colectiva e uma das mais ricas expressões da ideologia e crenças - mentalidade - de uma sociedade. Afinal de contas, como os antropólogos notaram, a religião é mais do que um padrão de relações sociais: é uma expressão da capacidade humana para imaginar a estrutura da sociedade. O ritual religioso não é apenas construção cultural: é uma forma de cognição que constrói modelos de realidade e paradigmas de comportamento. E dentro deste processo pelo qual a realidade é definida, o ritual da morte joga um papel central."
Author: Victor Turner
12. "O que me põe louco é a natureza dupla desta ninfeta - de todas as ninfetas, quiçá; esta mistura, na minha Lolita, de uma infantilidade terna e sonhadora com uma espécie de horripilante ordinarice, que provém das enfadonhas modelos fotográficas da publicidade e das revistas, com os seus narizinhos travessos..."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov

So you're the winner of this game show," Seth says, "and you get a choice between a five-piece living room set from Broyhill, suggested retail price three thousand dollars— or—a ten-day trip to the old world charm of Europe." Most people, Seth says, would take the living room set. "It's just that people want something to show for their effort," Seth says. "Like the pharaohs and their pyramids."
