4. "Colleague, given that I'm detached to go hunting bandits, I'd be grateful for the continued loan of your horses until we return. A squadron of cavalry could make all the difference when we're chasing around the forests after shadows.'Licinius gave him a jaundiced look. ‘You've got sticky fingers, young man. Every soldier that comes into contact with your cohort seems to end up as part of it. Hamian archers, borrowed cavalrymen. I'll even wager you that the half-century of legionaries Dubnus borrowed from the Sixth will end up in your establishment. And yes, you can extend the loan if you think it'll do you any good, and you can keep that decurion you promoted to command them."
Author: Anthony Riches
5. "Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand), the first single from Eat Me, Drink Me, features a video filmed by Titanic director James Cameron. In it, Manson croons to Wood, who – with bobbed hair, gloves and a demure frock – blankly masturbates in an audience of writhing lesbians, Manson's image reflected in her heart-shaped glasses. I wanted to like the song, but found Manson's threadbare voice and overdubbed music annoying, and the chorus - 'Don't break my heart/and I won't break your heart-shaped glasses' – suggested a pugilistic retribution ('Dump me, and I'll punch your lights out!') more in keeping with Norman Mailer than Nabokov."
Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke
6. "Criticism can never instruct or benefit you. Its chief effect is that of a telegram with dubious news. Praise leaves no glow behind, for it is a writer's habit to remember nothing good of himself. I have usually forgotten those who have admired my work, and seldom anyone who disliked it. Obviously, this is because praise is never enough and censure always too much."
Author: Ben Hecht
7. "Di tutte le cose sicure la più certa è il dubbio."
Author: Bertolt Brecht
8. "Svi se katkad izgubimo, katkad svojevoljno, a katkad zbog silnica nad kojima nemamo nadzora. Kad naucimo ono što naša duša treba nauciti, ukaže nam se put. Katkad vidimo put, ali protiv svoje volje bauljamo dalje i dublje. Strah, srdžba ili tuga prijece nam put natrag. Katkad nam je draže biti izgubljen, katkad je tako lakše. A katkad sami pronademo izlaz. Bilo kako bilo, svaki put na koncu budemo pronadeni" - Mjesto zvano Ovdje"
Author: Cecelia Ahern
9. "This woman is Pocahontas. She is Athena and Hera. Lying in this messy, unmade bed, eyes closed, this is Juliet Capulet. Blanche DuBois. Scarlett O'Hara. With ministrations of lipstick and eyeliner I give birth to Ophelia. To Marie Antoinette. Over the next trip of the larger hand around the face of the bedside clock, I give form to Lucrezia Borgia. Taking shape at my fingertips, my touches of foundation and blush, here is Jocasta. Lying here, Lady Windermere. Opening her eyes, Cleopatra. Given flesh, a smile, swinging her sculpted legs off one side of the bed, this is Helen of Troy. Yawning and stretching, here is every beautiful woman across history."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
10. "Anyway, for whatever interest is to be derived therefrom. Bacon, Balthus, and Magritte are my three favourite painters, along with Dubuffet, of the whole post-impressionist period, by which I mean that before them Bonnard, Vuillard, & Seurat are my favourite painters of that time."
Author: Edward Gorey
11. "Neku vecer razgovarali smo o izrazima koje koristimo dok tješimo nekoga ocajnog. Rekla sam mu kako na engleskom katkad kažemo "Been there." Objasnila sam mu da je duboka tuga kao tocno odredeno mjesto, sa svojim koordinatama na zemljovidu vremena. Kad se nadete u toj šumi tuge, ne možete ni zamisliti da cete ikada više pronaci put prema boljem mjestu. Ali, ako vas netko uspije uvjeriti da je bio na tom istom mjestu, ali ga je napustio, to katkad može donijeti nadu."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
12. "I kissed her," he explained, aggrieved."Mmm, yes, I had the dubious pleasure of witnessing that, ah-hem, overly public occurrence." Lyall sharpened his pen nib, using a small copper blade that ejected from the end of his glassicals."Well! Why hasn't she done anything about it?" the Alpha wanted to know."You mean like whack you upside the noggin with that deadly parasol of hers? I would be cautious in that area if I were you."
Author: Gail Carriger
13. "[Audubon's works are] the most splendid monuments which art has erected in honor of ornithology."
Author: Georges Cuvier
14. "Dead towns are the Cathedrals of Silence. They, too, have their gargoyles, singular figures, exaggerated, dubious, set in high profile. They stand out from the mass of grey, which takes all it has in the way of character, its twitchings of stagnant life from them. Some have been distorted by solitude, others grimace with a directionless fervour; here there are masks of cherished lust, there faces ceaselessly sculpted and furrowed by mysticism. Human gargoyles, the only figures of interest in this monotonous population."
Author: Georges Rodenbach
15. "One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected. …[This] convention protects them, and so they proceed with their blather unwhipped and almost unmolested, to the great damage of common sense and common decency. that they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly. Nor is there any visible intellectual dignity in theologians. Few of them know anything that is worth knowing, and not many of them are even honest."
Author: H.L. Mencken
16. "For the Bible, despite all its contradictions and absurdities, its barbarisms and obscenities, remains grand and gaudy stuff, and so it deserves careful study and enlightened exposition. It is not only lovely in phrase; it is also rich in ideas, many of them far from foolish. One somehow gathers the notion that it was written from end to end by honest men—inspired, perhaps, but nevertheless honest. When they had anything to say they said it plainly, whether it was counsel that enemies be slain or counsel that enemies be kissed. They knew how to tell a story, and how to sing a song, and how to swathe a dubious argument in specious and disarming words."
Author: H.L. Mencken
17. "A lady?" Jem raised his head. His face was scarlet. "After all those things she said about you, a lady?" "She was. She had her own views about things, a lot different form mine, maybe . . . son, I told you that if you hadn't lost your head I'd have made you go read to her. I wanted you to see something about her –I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do. Mrs. Dubose won, all ninety-eight pounds of her. According to her views, she died beholden to nothing and nobody. She was the bravest person I ever knew." Jem picked up the candy box and threw it in the fire. He picked up the camellia, and when I went off to bed I saw him fingering the wide petals. Atticus was reading the paper."
Author: Harper Lee
18. "The sepia tone of November has become blood-soaked with paper poppies festooning the lapels of our politicians, newsreaders and business leaders … I will no longer allow my obligation as a veteran to remember those who died in the great wars to be co-opted by current or former politicians to justify our folly in Iraq, our morally dubious war on terror and our elimination of one's right to privacy."
Author: Harry Leslie Smith
19. "We are multiple beings having a dubious experience"
Author: Heidi Julavits
20. "In 1828 the British historian Macaulay dubbed the press gallery in Parliament a ‘fourth estate' of the realm. Today the news media appear to have become the first estate able to topple monarchs and turn Parliament into a talking shop which ceases to exist if journalists turn their backs."
Author: Ian Hargreaves
21. "Sekcirajte dublje svoje motive. Naci cete da niko nikada nije ucinio ništa uzvišeno za drugoga. Svi postupci su usmjereni ka sebi, sve usluge sebi, sva ljubav je ljubav prema sebi. Izgledate iznenadeni ovim komentarom? Možda imate na umu one koje volite. Zaronite dublje i shvaticete da ne volite njih: ono što volite su prijatni osjecaji koje takva ljubav stvara u vama!"
Author: Irvin D. Yalom
22. "Imajte na umu, upade Nice, da sam naslijedio izrazito senzibilan nervni sistem. To znam na osnovu duboke osjetljivosti na muziku i umjetnost. Kada sam prvi put cuo Karmen, sve nervne celije u mom mozgu odjednom su se zapalile: citav nervni sistem je plamtio. Iz istog razloga burno reagujem na svaku nijansu promjene vremena i vazdušnog pritiska."
Author: Irvin D. Yalom
23. "Mnogo samuješ i dugo cutiš, sine moj, zatravljen si snovima, izmoren putevima duha. Lik ti je pognut i lice blijedo, duboko spuštene vjede i glas kao škripa tamnickih vrata. Izidi u ljetni dan, sine moj!- Šta si vidio u ljetni dan, sine moj?Vidio sam da je zemlja jaka i nebo vjecno, a covjek slab i kratkovjek.- Šta si vidio, sine moj, u ljetni dan?Vidio sam da je ljubav kratka, a glad vjecna.- Šta si vidio, sine moj, u ljetni dan?Vidio sam da je ovaj život stvar mucna, koja se sastoji od nepravilne izmjene grijeha i nesrece, da živjeti znaci slagati varku na varku.- Hoceš da usneš, sine moj?Ne, oce, idem da ž i v i m."
Author: Ivo Andric

And you have to kiss him back."No," she said.Yes." I nodded, as if I knew everything there was to know about husbands and wives kissing. "That's what they do together."Do you have to?"Oh, absolutely. It's the law."I never heard of that law," she said dubiously.It's true, it's Texas law," I said."
Author: Jacqueline Kelly
25. "Dubai was a property bubble. Plain and simple. Go to Dubai and see what happened. It was... what I call it the 'Edifice complex' - it's just, we can grow by putting up lots and lots of buildings and trying to attract people to come here, stay here, and put up offices here and sooner or later, you put up too many."
Author: James Chanos
26. "His sensitive nature was still smarting under the lashes of an undivided and squalid way of life. His soul was still disquieted and cast down by the dull phenomenon of Dublin. He had emerged from a two years' spell of revery to find himself in the midst of a new scene, every event and figure of which affected him intimately, disheartened him or allured and, whether alluring or disheartening, filled him always with unrest and bitter thoughts. All the leisure which his school life left him was passed in the company of subversive writers whose jibes and violence of speech set up a ferment in his brain before they passed out of it into his crude writings."
Author: James Joyce
27. "…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
28. "When we found each other, I was very flabbergasted by his appearance. This is an American? I thought. And also, This is a Jew? He was severely short. He wore spectacles and had diminutive hairs which were not split anywhere, but rested on his head like a Shapka. (If i were like Father, I might even have dubbed him Shapka.) He did not appear like either the Americans I had witnessed in magazines, with yellow hairs and muscles, or the Jews from history books, with no hair and prominent bones. He was wearing nor blue jeans nor the uniform. In truth, he did not look like anything special at all. I was underwhelmed to the maximum."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
29. "From her dubious tone alone, I could see how Karin had no idea how terrifying words spoken quietly could be. How words chosen precisely to wreak maximum damage ticked like a bomb in your head, but exploded in your heart hours later, leaving you scarred and changed."
Author: Justina Chen
30. "I didn't say, You are such a stuffy asshole. And he didn't say, If you ever burn one of my quarter-of-a-million dollar rugs again I'll take it out of your hide, and I didn't say, Oh, honey, wouldn't you like to? And he didn't say Grow up, Ms. Lane, I don't take little girls to my bed, and I didn't say I wouldn't go there if it was the only safe place from the Lord Master in all of Dublin."
Author: Karen Marie Moning

Author: Karen Marie Moning
32. "I've mainly been sampling jazz because the tone of the chords are expressive in itself, so it's quite nice to write over. It's got interpretations of a lot of different genres, too, a lot of dubby-ness and experimental stuff."
Author: King Krule
33. "Forse, quando commemoriamo la guerra, dovremmo toglierci i vestiti e dipingerci di blu e camminare per tutto il giorno a quattro zampe grufolando come maiali. questo sarebbe indubbiamente più appropriato di qualsiasi nobile discorso e sventolio di bandiere e present'arm coi fucili ben oliati."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Author: Leo Tolstoy
36. "Old lady, if I die I'd like you to do one small thing for me. I want you to build a one-hundred-acre museum dedicated to my memory. Bronze my clothing and possessions. Have at least three hundred marble statues erected of me in my most dashing poses. One of these statues should stand one hundred feet tall and greet ships as they float down the Hudson River. One of the fourteen wings of the museum should have an amusement park with the world's fastest roller coaster inside. None of these rides should be equipped with safety devices. You can license some of the space to fast-food restaurants and ice-cream parlors but nothing should be healthy or nutritious. The gift shop should sell stuffed Puck dolls packed with broken glass and asbestos. There's a more detailed list in my room." Puck saidduble"
Author: Michael Buckley
37. "I am not worthy of my suffering. A great sentence. It suggests not only that suffering is the basis of the self, its sole indubitable ontological proof, but also that it is the one feeling most worthy of respect; the value of all values."

50. "After all, the Church had murdered itself, as with every decade more and more depressed dubiousness crept into its synods and convocations, until speaking in tongues, it beat its own skull in at the back of the vestry. Divorcees and devil-worshippers, schismatics, sodomites and self murderers -- they were all the same for the impotent figures who stood in the pulpit and peered down at pitiful congregations, their numbers winnowed out by satellite television and interest-free credit."
