1. "Randomisation is not a new idea. It was first proposed in the seventeenth century by John Baptista van Helmont, a Belgian radical who challenged the academics of his day to test their treatments like blood-letting and purging (based on ‘theory') against his own, which he said were based more on clinical experience: ‘Let us take out of the hospitals, out of the Camps, or from elsewhere, two hundred, or five hundred poor People, that have Fevers, Pleurisies, etc. Let us divide them into half, let us cast lots, that one half of them may fall to my share, and the other to yours … We shall see how many funerals both of us shall have."
Author: Ben Goldacre
2. "Corsi verso di loro. La bimba era fra le braccia della madre, e io lascia cadere la spada, mi sfilai l'elmo e mi inginocchiai lì accanto. - Dian - sussurrai. - Amore mio.Vidi l'anima tremolare ancora nei suoi occhi. Mi vide, Dian mi vide, e vide sua madre, prima di morire. Ci guardò per un istante, poi la sua giovane anima si allontanò leggere come un'ala nel buio, senza rumore, come una fiamma di candela spenta da un soffio di vento. Lavaine le aveva tagliato la gola mentre saltava verso il braccio del fratello e adesso il suo piccolo cuore aveva rinunciato a lottare. Ma riuscì ancora a vedermi, prima di morire. Ne sono certo. Mi vide, poi morì, e io abbracciai lei e sua madre e piansi come un bambino.Piansi per le mia piccola, adorata Dian."
Author: Bernard Cornwell
3. "Listen, Stephen King used to write in the washroom of his trailer after his kids went to sleep. Harlan Ellison wrote in the stall of a bathroom of his barracks during boot camp. Elmore Leonard got up at 5 AM every morning to write before work.Every time my alarm goes off at 5 AM and I don't want to get up, or I would rather sit down after work and play a videogame, I think about those guys. Take care of your family. They need you and love you. Make time for them. Then stop screwing around and finish your damn book."
Author: Bernard Schaffer
4. "I loved Granny Belmonte, but she didn't need a costume to look undead."
Author: Bethany Frenette
5. "Remind me again why I put up with you?" ''Cause you sold me your soul for five bucks, and now you must submit to my will?' I still had the sheet of paper, written in his untidy fifth-grade scrawl. Gideon David Belmonte. One soul."
Author: Bethany Frenette
6. "It is often difficult, I find, for people today to grasp the notion that one family, working through several restaurants could change the eating habit of an entire country. But such was the achievement of the Delmonicos in the United States of the last century. Before they opened their first small cafe on William Street in 1823, catering to the business and financial communities of Lower Manhattan, American food could generally be described as things boiled or fried whose purpose was to sustain hard work and hold down alcohol - usually bad alcohol. The Delmonicos, though Swiss, had brought the French method to America, and each generation of their family refined an expanded the experience ... The craving for first-rate dining became a kind of national fever in the latter decades of the century - and Delmonico's was responsible."
Author: Caleb Carr
7. "Minden itt látható könyvnek lelke van. Mindegyikben benne rejtozik annak a lelke, aki írta, és mindazoké, akik olvasták, átélték és álmodtak róla. Ahányszor csak valaki a kezébe vesz egy könyvet, s tekintetével átfutja lapjait, a könyv szelleme újraéled, erore kap. (...) Az itt található könyvek mindegyikérol elmondható, hogy egyszer a legjobb barátja volt valakinek."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
8. "Dans l'automne de l'année 1816, John Melmoth, élève du collège de la Trinité, à Dublin, suspendit momentanément ses études pour visiter un oncle mourant, et de qui dépendaient toutes ses espérances de fortune. John, qui avait perdu ses parents, était le fils d'un cadet de famille, dont la fortune médiocre suffisait à peine pour payer les frais de son éducation ; mais son oncle était vieux, célibataire et riche. Depuis sa plus tendre enfance, John avait appris, de tous ceux qui l'entouraient, à regarder cet oncle avec ce sentiment qui attire et repousse à la fois, ce respect mêlé du désir de plaire, que l'on éprouve pour l'être qui tient en quelque sorte en ses mains le fil de notre existence."
Author: Charles Robert Maturin
9. "What I've got here are my own constraints. I'm challenging myself, using found objects and making stuff that throws all this computational capacity at, you know, these trivial problems, like car-driving Elmo clusters and seashell toaster-robots. We have so much capacity that the trivia expands to fill it. And all that capacity is junk-capacity, it's leftovers. There's enough computational capacity in a junkyard to launch a space-program, and that's by design. Remember the iPod? Why do you think it was so prone to scratching and going all gunky after a year in your pocket? Why would Apple build a handheld technology out of materials that turned to shit if you looked at them cross-eyed? It's because the iPod was only meant to last a year!"
Author: Cory Doctorow
10. "You know, I think some people fear that if they like the wrong kind of book, it will reflect poorly on them. It can go with genre, too. Somebody will say, "I won't read science fiction, or I won't read young adult novels"—all of those genres can become prisons. I always find it funny when the serious literary world will make a little crack in its wall and allow in one pet genre writer and crown them and say, "Well Elmore Leonard is actually a real writer." Or "Stephen King is actually a really good writer." Generally speaking, you know you're being patronized when somebody uses the word "actually"
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
11. "Como dice Blanchot, la esencia de la literatura nunca está ya aquí, siempre hay que encontrarla o inventarla de nuevo. Así vengo yo trabajando en estas notas, buscando e inventando, prescindiendo de que existen unas reglas de juego de la literatura. Vengo yo trabajando en estas notas de forma un tanto despreocupada o anárquica, de un modo que me recuerda a veces la respuesta que dio el gran torero Belmonte cuando, en una entrevista, le requirieron que hablara sobre su toreo. "¡Si no sé! -contestó-. Palabra que no sé. Yo no sé las reglas, ni creo en las reglas. Yo siento el toreo, y sin fijarme en las reglas lo ejecuto a mi modo.""Quien afirme a la literatura en sí misma, no afirma nada. Quien la busca, sólo busca lo que se escapa, quien la encuentra, sólo encuentra lo que está aquí o, cosa peor, más allá de la literatura. Por eso, finalmente, cada libro persigue la no-literatura como la esencia de lo que quiere y quisiera apasionadamente descubrir."
Author: Enrique Vila Matas
12. "Rettento színben van, sárga és fakó, arcán már ott vannak azok az idegen vonások, amiket oly pontosan ismerünk, mert már százszor láttuk. Tulajdonképpen nem is vonások, inkább jegyek. Bore alatt már semmi élet nem lüktet; kiszorították a felszínre, belülrol a halál küszködik egyre kijjebb, a szemén uralkodik is már. Itt fekszik Kemmerich bajtársunk, aki még nemrégen lóhúst sütött, és a gránittölcsérben kuksolt velünk együtt – még o az, és már mégsem o, a képe elmosódott, határozatlanná vált, mint egy fényképlemez, amelyre két fölvételt csináltak. Még a hangja csengése is a hamura emlékeztet."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
13. "I am an old man who will live until I die," Anselmo said."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
14. "I hope I am not for the killing, Anselmo was thinking. I think that after the war there will have to be some great penance done for the killing. If we no longer have religion after the war then I think there must be some form of civic penance organized that all may be cleansed from the killing or else we will never have a true and human basis for living. The killing is necessary, I know, but still the doing of it is very bad for a man and I think that, after all this is over and we have won the war, there must be a penance of some kind for the cleansing of us all."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
15. "A szerelem! Két év óta növekvo szorongással töltötte el a közeledése. Most már szabad volt szeretnie; már csak találkoznia kellett vele! Milyen lesz? Pontosan nem is tudta, és nem is kérdezte magától. O lesz, a többi nem fontos. Csak annyit tudott: imádni fogja, és mindent megtesz érte. Együtt sétálnak ilyen esténként, mint a mai – kettesben a csillagoktól porzó ragyogásban. Egymás kezét fogják, s összesimulva mennek majd, és hallgatják egymás szívének dobogását, érzik válluk melegét, és szerelmük elvegyül a nyári éjszakák lágy tisztaságával. Annyira eggyé válnak, hogy könnyedén, gyöngédségük erejével megértik egymás legrejtettebb gondolatát is. És ez örökké így lesz; az elmondhatatlan szeretet nyugalmában."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
16. "Well, well, well. Tickle my Elmo ass silly."
Author: J.A. Saare
17. "Farewell sweet earth and northern sky,for ever blest, since here did lieand here with lissom limbs did runbeneath the Moon, beneath the Sun,Lúthien Tinúvielmore fair than Mortal tongue can tell.Though all to ruin fell the worldand were dissolved and backward hurled;unmade into the old abyss,yet were its making good, for this?the dusk, the dawn, the earth, the sea?that Lúthien for a time should be."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
18. "For tech, I like the 'DailySearchCast', 'TWiT' and anything Veronica Belmont does on CNET. I think Perez Hilton is a riot, and the rest of my consumption is by people: Folks like Dave Winer, Fred Wilson, Mark Cuban, Brian Alvey, Jeff Jarvis, Xeni Jardin, etc."
Author: Jason Calacanis
19. "Che la vita di un uomo sia soltanto un sogno è già stato affermato da molti, e tale sentimento si è impadronito anche di me. Quando considero i limiti entro cui sono prigioniere le forze attive e speculative dell'uomo, quando vedo che ogni attività mira all'unico scopo di soddisfare i bisogni, i quali, a loro volta, servono soltanto a prolungare la misera esistenza, e poi comprendo che l'appagamento su certi punti delle nostre speculazioni non è altro che sognante rassegnazione perché dipingiamo soltanto variopinte figure e luminosi panorami sulle pareti fra le quali siamo prigionieri, tutto ciò, Guglielmo, mi ammutolisce. Rientro in me stesso e trovo un universo! Ma formato più di presentimenti e di oscuri desideri che di immagini e di forze viventi. Allora tutto si confonde davanti ai miei sensi, e io sorrido e continuo a sognare nel mondo."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
20. "I'm a big fan of Elmore Leonard, and I've read Ian Rankin, Christopher Brookmyre and so on. But I'd never read a crime novel that made me feel emotional at the end."
Author: John Gordon Sinclair
21. "Zelmo was nearly bellowing by the time he raised his glass to the tables center. 'To the human heart!' Diners at other tables glanced to see what was the matter."
Author: Jonathan Lethem
22. "Da wir heute jedoch in einer zunehmend säkularisierten Gesellschaft leben und das virtuelle Universum sich immer weiter ausdehnt, haben wir es mit einer völlig anderen Spezies zu tun: mit Popstars und Schauspielern sowie Medien- und Videospielmonguln, die statt Würde auszustrahlen, diese nun auf dem Altar der kreativen Schizophrenie opfern."
Author: Kevin Dutton
23. "Like Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake and Robert B. Parker and oh so many others, I want to die with my boots on, facedown on my keyboard if possible, in the middle of a sentence."
Author: Kristine Kathryn Rusch
24. "I'm a child of the '80s, so like everyone else, I love all those classic, formative movies - 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off,' 'Pretty in Pink,' 'Sixteen Candles,' 'Dirty Dancing,' etc., with 'St. Elmo's Fire' and 'The Breakfast Club' existing on a separate, slightly higher plane."
Author: Lauren Weisberger
25. "I turned the page in Slaughterhouse Five, a forbidden book at Belmont because we were too young to read about soldiers swearing and bombs dropping and bodies blowing up and war sucking."
Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
26. "They can herd you only because you can't herd yourselves. Forget the flock. Forget the dogs. Herd yourselves (p. 223).Melmouth, of the George Flock in Three Bags Full"
Author: Leonie Swann
27. "Mr. Raney named the porpoises - Sister Woman, and Renford, and Lamar, and St. Elmo - and could recognize them, and call each by its name, even at night, six feet long, some of them, with a million sharp teeth and a naughty grin. Often when he floated past in the boat and watched their playful wheeling, in and out among the cypress knees, he called out to them, "Lamar, we are all alone in the world!" or "Renford, cork is an export product of India!"
Author: Lewis Nordan
28. "Dalle vette nuvolose delle sue astrazioni il signor Anselmo lasciava spesso precipitar così, come valanghe, i suoi pensieri. La ragione, il nesso, l'opportunità di essi rimanevano lassù, tra le nuvole, dimodochè difficilmente a chi lo ascoltava riusciva di capirci qualche cosa."
Author: Luigi Pirandello
29. "I love the sound of Elmore James, the sound early guitarists like him got just by using minimal means."
Author: M. Ward
30. "Ha az ember mindenekfölött szeret valakit, a legparányibb, másnak teljességgel semmitmondó körülményt is fontosnak tartja: ezerszer elmondtuk ezt, és így igaz."
Author: Madame De Sévigné
31. "De azért elmondom azt is, amit a diákjaimnak szoktam mondani, amikor panaszkodnak az amerikai irodalom depressziós volta miatt: az élet nem egy családi film. A való életben gyakran végzodnek rosszul a dolgok, mint ahogy például a házasságunk is, Pat. És az irodalom ezt a valóságot próbálja dokumentálni, miközben bemutatja, hogy az emberek képesek ezt méltósággal elviselni."
Author: Matthew Quick
32. "Eszébe jutott Szerda megjegyzése, és önkéntelenül elmosolyodott: túl sok emberrel találkozott, akik mondogatták, hogy tilos elfojtani az érzéseket, ki kell mutatni az érzelmeket, szabadon kell ereszteni a fájdalmat. Árnyék úgy gondolta, sok minden szól az érzelmek elfojtása mellett. Ha elég sokáig és elég mélyen eltemeted oket, egy ido után nem érzel semmit."
Author: Neil Gaiman
33. "On the Big Blackfoot River above the mouth of Belmont Creek the banks are fringed by large Ponderosa pines. In the slanting sun of late afternoon the shadows of great branches reached from across the river, and the trees took the river in their arms. The shadows continued up the bank, until they included us"
Author: Norman Maclean
34. "All your sea-omens are of disaster; and of course, with man in his present unhappy state, huddled together in numbers far too great and spending all his surplus time and treasure beating out his brother's brains, any gloomy foreboding is likely to be fulfilled; but your corpse, your parson, your St Elmo's fire is not the cause of the tragedy."
Author: Patrick O'Brian
35. "I wish I could claim that I said this being an author, but alas I did not." --I try to leave out the parts that people skip. — Elmore Leonard"
Author: Tommy Taylor
36. "Wagons to move the camp of a regiment from one place to another, and some of the camps had bakeries and cooking establishments that would have done credit to Delmonico."
Author: William T. Sherman

I see people who die a few minutes after a doctor tells them there is no hope of a cure. They give up and go. Others get angry and find joy in proving the doctor wrong. Something within them is challenged and hopeful. Hope is the divine motivator."
