"It is not a man's duty, as a matter of course, to devote himself to the eradication of any, even to most enormous wrong; he may still properly have other concerns to engage him; but it is his duty, at least, to wash his hands of it, and, if he gives it no thought longer, not to give it practically his support."
Author: Henry David Thoreau

10. "Our Negro problem, therefore, is not of the Negro's making. No group in our population is less responsible for its existence. But every group is responsible for its continuance.... Both races need to understand that their rights and duties are mutual and equal and their interests in the common good are idential.... There is no help or healing in apparaising past responsibilities or in present apportioning of praise or blame. The past is of value only as it aids in understanding the present; and an understanding of the facts of the problem--a magnanimous understanding by both races--is the first step toward its solution."
Author: Isabel Wilkerson
11. "Man, my friends,is frail and foolish. We have all of us been told that grace is to be found in the universe. But in our human foolishness and short-sightedness we imagine divine grace to be finite. For this reason we tremble. We tremble before making our choice in life, and after having made it again tremble in fear of having chosen wrong. But the moment comes when our eyes are opened, and we see and realize that grace is infinite. Grace, my friends, demands nothing from us but that we shall await it with confidence and acknowledge it in gratitude. Grace, brothers, makes no conditions and singles out none of us in particular; grace takes us all to its bosom and proclaims general amnesty. See! that which we have chosen is given us, and that which we have refused is, also and at the same time, granted us. Ay, that which we have rejected is poured upon us abundantly. For mercy and truth have met together, and righteousness and bliss have kissed one another!"
Author: Isak Dinesen
12. "My mother was a pathetic patchwork witch who had used magic so much to meddle in her own life that she had no integrity left and was nothing but a coil of hatreds consuming themselves in futility. We had already hedged her power, with the help of the fairies."

15. "Hubiera sido tan fácil organizar un esquema coherente, un orden de pensamiento y de vida, una armonía. Bastaba la hipocresía de siempre, elevar el pasado a valor de experiencia, sacar partido de las arrugas de la cara, del aire vivido que hay en las sonrisas o los silencios de más de cuarenta años. Después uno se ponía un traje azul, se peinaba las sienes plateadas y entraba en las exposiciones de pintura, en la Sade y en el Richmond, reconciliado con el mundo. Un escepticismo discreto, un aire de estar de vuelta, un ingreso cadencioso en la madurez, en el matrimonio, en el sermón paterno a la hora del asado o de la libreta de clasificaciones insatisfactoria. Te lo digo porque yo he vivido mucho. Yo que he viajado. Cuando yo era muchacho. Son todas iguales, te lo digo yo. Te hablo por experiencia, m'hijo. Vos todavía no conocés la vida."
Author: Julio Cortázar

19. "I wonder if I'm going crazy. I think I read somewhere - or was it something I learned in psychology class? - that people often make up their own reality as a means of coping with what their brains can't possible handle. The idea comforts me, because while no one else out there seems to be trying to protect or save me, at least maybe my brain in."
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
20. "There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind."
Author: Louisa May Alcott

23. "The boat has become supreme isolation, chosen isolation, holding myself apart from the world, which I only dimly understand anyway. I can sit on the aft deck and never be surprised by anything again- no phone will ever ring, no one will knock that I haven't seen coming for a quarter mile. that I can go to sleep any night and wake up having broken loose- a failed knot, a line frayed, the anchor dragged- that I can drift out of sight of land makes a twisted sense, in line with my internal weather. When everything has proven tenuous one can either move toward permanence or toward impermanence. The boat's sublimely impermanent. Some mornings the fog's so thick that I exist only in a tight globe of clearing, beyond which is all foghorn and unknown."
Author: Nick Flynn
24. "Shoving aside fear and self-doubt, I met his eyes, aiming for absolute confidence in both my stance and my voice. "My father taught me to disarm my opponent at all costs—regardless of his choice of weapon," I said, glancing pointedly at his groin."Are you threatening me?""Damn right. Lay one hand on me and you'll never stand to pee again."His eyes darkened, and his laugh sounded forced. "You're very funny, gatita.""I'm glad you think so. I've always considered my sense of humor to be largely under-appreciated, so it's nice to finally meet a fan."
Author: Rachel Vincent
25. "For a man, there's a big responsibility that comes with having a boy because men are made by their fathers. If you've got a good productive man around it's better. I have such a close relationship with my dad and that responsibility to produce a good man is something I think about."
Author: Rafe Spall
26. "You go in through double swing doors. Inside the double doors there is a combination PBX and information desk at which sits one of those ageless women you see around municipal offices everywhere in the world. They were never young and will never be old. They have no beauty, no charm, no style. They don't have to please anybody. They are safe. They are civil without ever quite being polite and intelligent and knowledgeable without any real interest in anything. They are what human beings turn into when they trade life for existence and ambition for security."

"Well, when he wakes up, someone tell him that he will no longer be an outcast, and that all satyrs, naiads, and other spirits of nature will henceforth treat him as a lord of the Wild, with all rights, privileges, and honors, blah, blah, blah. Now please, drag him off before he wakes up and starts groveling.""FOOOOOD," Grover moaned, as the nature spirits carried him away.I figured he'd be okay. He would wake up as a lord of the Wild with a bunch of beautiful naiads taking care of him. Life could be worse."
