3. "I know positively - yes Rieux I can say I know the world inside out as no one on earth is free from it. And I know too that we must keep endless watch on ourselves lest in careless moment we breathe in somebody's face and fasten the infection on him. What's natural is the microbe. All the rest- health integrity purity if you like - is a product of the human will of vigilance that must never falter. The good man the man who infects hardly anyone is the man who has the fewest lapses of attention. And it needs tremendous will-power a never ending tension of the mind to avoid such lapses. Yes Rieux it's a wearying business being plague-stricken. But it's still more wearying to refuse to be it. That's why everybody in the world today looks so tired everyone is more or less sick of plague. But that is also why some of us who want to get the plague out of their systems feel such desperate weariness a weariness from which nothing remains to set us free except death."
Author: Albert Camus

5. "It is not in becoming a whore that a woman becomes an outlaw in this man's world; it is in the possession of herself, the ownership and effective control of her own body, her seperateness and distinctness, the integrity of her body as hers, not his. Prostitution may be against the written law, but no prostitute has defied the prerogatives or power of men as a class through prostitution. No prostitute provides any model for freedom or action in a world of freedom that can be used with intelligence and integrity by a woman; the model exists to entice counterfeit female sexual revolutionaries, gullible liberated girls, and to serve the men who enjoy them."
Author: Andrea Dworkin

"Is he serious?" she called over her shoulder to Foaly. "Oh, absolutely," said the centaur "If he asks you to look for birthmarks, say no immediately." "Oh, I would never." Orion assured her. "Ladies don't look for birthmarks; that is work for jolly fellows like the Goodly Beast and myself. Ladies, like Miss Short, do enough by simply existing. They exude beauty, and that is enough." "I am not exuding anything." said Holly, through gritted teeth. Orion tapped her shoulder. "I beg to differ. You're exuding right now, a wonderful aura. It's pastel blue with little dolphins." Holly gripped the wheel tightly. "I'm going to be sick. Did he just say pastel blue?" "And dolphins, little ones," said Foaly."
Author: Eoin Colfer

No sienten ninguna angustia cuando oyen el grito del gallo ni cuando se pasean bajo un cielo estrellado. Cuando se entregan 'a los placeres de la carne' lo hacen a condición de que sean insípidos."
Author: Georges Bataille

14. "Aunque tardé mucho tiempo y tuve que recorrer gran parte del mundo para aprender lo que ahora sé sobre el amor, el destino y las decisiones que tomamos, la esencia de ese conocimiento me llegó en un solo instante, encadenado a una pared mientras me torturaban. De algún modo me di cuenta entonces, entre los gritos que llenaban mi cabeza, que incluso en aquella maniatada y sangrienta impotencia, seguía conservando mi libertad; la libertad de odiar a los hombres que me estaban torturando o de perdonarles. No parece mucho, lo sé, pero sometidos al dolor y al suplicio de las cadenas, cuando es lo único que tenemos, esa libertad es un universo de posibilidades. Y la decisión que tomemos, sea el odio o el perdón, puede convertirse en la historia de nuestra vida."
Author: Gregory David Roberts

25. "Nations do not plunge at once into ruin - governments do not change suddenly - the causes which bring about the final blow, are scarcely perceptible in the beginning; but they increase in numbers, and in power; they press harder and harder upon the energies and virtue of a people; and the last steps only are alarmingly hurried and irregular. A republic without industry, economy, and integrity, is Samson shorn of his locks. A luxurious and idle republic! Look at the phrase! - The words were never made to be married together; every body sees it would be death to one of them."
Author: Lydia Maria Francis Child

Ciumento, exigente, inseguro, carente todo cheio de marcas que a vida deixou. Vejo em cada grito de exigência um pedido de carência, um pedido de amor.Amor é síntese é uma integração de dados. Não há que tirar nem pôr. Não me corte em fatias, ninguém consegue abraçar um pedaço. Me envolva todo em seus braços e eu serei o perfeito amor."
Author: Mario Quintana
29. "E não sou muito boa nessa história de consolar, especialmente quando tenho as mãos frias e a cama é quente. Carreguei-o com delicadeza pela rua destroçada, com sal nos olhos e o coração mortalmente pesado. Observei por um instante o conteúdo de sua alma, e vi um menino pintado de preto, gritando o nome de Jesse Owens ao cruzar uma fita de chegada imaginária. Vi-o afundado até os quadris em água gelada, perseguindo um livro, e vi um garoto deitado na cama, imaginando que gosto teria um beijo de sua gloriosa vizinha do lado. Ele mexe comigo, esse garoto. Sempre. É sua única desvantagem. Ele pisoteia meu coração. Ele me faz chorar."
Author: Markus Zusak

31. "The Deliverator belongs to an elite order, a hallow subcategory. He's got esprit up to here. Right now, he is preparing to carry out his third mission of the night. His uniform is black as activated charcoal, filtering the very light out of the air. A bullet will bounce off its arachnofiber weave like a wren hitting a patio door, but excess perspiration wafts through it like a breeze through a freshly napalmed forest. Where his body has bony extremities, the suit has sintered armorgel: feels like gritty jello, protects like a stack of telephone books."
Author: Neal Stephenson

Author: Ovid
34. "The cats are asleep at the end of my bed and all around me, the thundery silence of L'Escarènere, caught at last in the rising flood of warm air, carrying the sand from the south. The Alps are folded above in the flickering light. And on the desk in the room beneath lies the writing which insists that the only escape is through the absolute destruction of everything you have ever known, loved, cared for, believed in, even the shell of yourself must be discarded with contempt; for freedom costs no less than everything, including your generosity, self-respect, integrity, tenderness - is that really what i wanted to say? It's what I have said. Worse still, I have pointed out the sheer creative joy of this ferocious destructiveness and the liberating wonder of violence. And these are dangerous messages for which I am no longer responsible."
Author: Patricia Duncker
35. "The integrity of the game is everything."
Author: Peter Ueberroth
36. "In idyllic small towns I sometimes see teenagers looking out of place in their garb of desperation, the leftover tatters and stains and slashes of the fashion of my youth. For this phase of their life, the underworld is their true home, and in the grit and underbelly of a city they could find something that approximates it. Even the internal clock of adolescents changes, making them nocturnal creatures for at least a few years. All through childhood you grow toward life and then in adolescence, at the height of life, you begin to grow toward death. This fatality is felt as an enlargement to be welcomed and embraced, for the young in this culture enter adulthood as a prison, and death reassures them that there are exits. "I have been half in love with easeful death," said Keats who died at twenty-six and so were we, though the death we were in love with was only an idea then."
Author: Rebecca Solnit
37. "The man who would find his vegetal negative and unite with it would restore the integrity of the cosmos."
Author: René Daumal
38. "When I was born, humanity was 95 per cent illiterate. Since I've been born, the population has doubled and that total population is now 65 per cent literate. That's a gain of 130-fold of the literacy. When humanity is primarily illiterate, it needs leaders to understand and get the information and deal with it. When we are at the point where the majority of humans them-selves are literate, able to get the information, we're in an entirely new relationship to Universe. We are at the point where the integrity of the individual counts and not what the political leadership or the religious leadership says to do."
Author: Richard Buckminster Fuller
39. "Brazen it out! Throw away the scabbard! Grit your teeth, buckle down, and die with your boots on! Or in other words, be determined and resolved until you accomplish the thing you set out to accomplish."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
40. "The same characters that keep reappearing, bigger than life, find their own integrity in doing what they do the way they do it, even if it causes their own deaths."
Author: Robert Aldrich
41. "Metta sees truly that our integrity is inviolate, no matter what our life situation may be. We do not need to fear anything. We are whole: our deepest happiness is intrinsic to the nature of our minds, and it is not damaged through uncertainty and change."
Author: Sharon Salzberg
42. "The personal values managers reported being the most under pressure to compromise to do their jobs successfully: 1. Family 2. Integrity."
Author: Stan Slap
43. "Peeta y yo volvemos a unirnos. Aún hay momentos donde él aprieta la partetrasera de la silla y se sostiene hasta que los recuerdos se han terminado. Yodespierto gritando de pesadillas sobre mutos y niños perdidos. Pero sus brazosestán ahí para confortarme. Y finalmente sus labios. En la noche en que siento esa cosa de nuevo, el hambre que me controló en la playa, sé que esto habría pasado de todas formas. Que lo que necesito para sobrevivir no es el fuego de Gale, encendido por la rabia y el odio. Tengo bastante fuego en mí misma. Lo que necesito es el diente de león en la primavera. El amarillo brillante que significa renacer en vez de destrucción. La promesa de que la vida puede continuar, sin importar lo malo de nuestras pérdidas. Que puede ser buena de nuevo. Y sólo Peeta puede darme eso.Así que después, cuando él susurra:?Tú me amas. ¿Real o no real?Le digo:?Real."
Author: Suzanne Collins
44. "Pero el vacío en mi pecho se abre como una caverna dentro de mi pecho. Me siento tan malditamente solo todo el tiempo.

Author: Tabitha Suzuma

Author: Tony Campolo
49. "Mas talvez naquele momento ele não tenha sido capaz de nenhum cálculo,o grito que lhe saiu da boca era o grito de sua alma e nele e com ele descarregava anos de longos e secretos remorsos.Ou seja,após uma vida de incertezas,entusiasmos e desilusões,vilezas e traições,posto diante da inelutabilidade de sua ruína,ele decidia professar a fé de sua juventude,sem mais perguntar se era justa ou errada,mas para mostrar a si mesmo que era capaz de alguma fé."
Author: Umberto Eco
