1. "I want to go on living even after my death! And therefore I am grateful to God for giving me this gift, this possibility of developing myself and of writing, of expressing all that is in me."
Author: Anne Frank
2. "Personally, I am always very nervous when I begin to speak. Every time I make a speech I feel I am submitting to judgment, not only about my ability but my character and honor. I am afraid of seeing either to promise more than I can perform, which suggests complete irresponsibility, or to perform less than I can, which suggests bad faith and indifference' (Cicero in Everitt, 58)."
Author: Anthony Everitt
3. "Like you? I go out of here every morning… bust my butt…putting up with them crackers everyday…cause I like you? You about the biggest fool I ever saw. It's my JOB. It's my RESPONSIBILITY! You understand that? A man got to take care of his family. You live in my house… sleep on my bed clothes…fill you belly up with my food… cause you my son. You my flesh and blood. Not ‘cause I like you! Cause it's my duty to take care of you. I OWE a responsibility to you! Let's get this straight right here… before it go along any further… I ain't got to like you. Mr. Rand don't five me money come payday cause he likes me. He gives me cause he OWE me. I done give you everything I had to give you. I gave you your life! Me and your mama worked that out between us. And liking your black ass wasn't part of the bargain. Don't try and go through life worrying about if somebody like you or not. You best be making sure they doing right by you. You understand what I'm saying, boy?"- August Wilson, Fences, 1986."

4. "Kimi zaman öyle geliyor ki, hayatim boyunca kati hale geçemedim ben, durmadan masalarin, koltuklarin, sehpalarin altina ve yetiskinlerin ayaklarinin dibine çöken, bereket versin havadan agir bir gaz olarak yasadim bunca yili. Yirmi alti yili. Ve bu yirmi alti yil boyunca tek bir seyi istedim, tek bir seyin pesinden kostum, kos dedim ruhuma, kos alçak, kos pislik, o da kostu…Karsima çikan herkesin, kadin erkek, çoluk çocuk, herkesin bana asik olmasini istedim. Iste benim basit gerçegim! Ama artik, içkili ve kalabalik bir aksam yemegi hayal ediyorum. Açik havada, çiplak ampullerin altinda. Güzel seyler yiyip içmisiz. Nefis bir yaz gecesi. Masada kalan son kisi ben olmak istiyorum. Eslerin birlikte kalkmasini seyrediyorum sessizce. Sonra erkeklerden yemege yalniz gelmis kadinlari evlerine birakmalarini rica ediyorum. Masada tek basima kalmak istiyorum. Rüzgarla sallanan çiplak ampüllerin altinda. Agustosböceklerini dinliyorum ve bir parça kuru ekmek atiyorum agzima."
Author: Baris Biçakçi
5. "Because you have seen something doesn't mean you can explain it. Differing interpretations will always abound, even when good minds come to bear. The kernel of indisputable information is a dot in space; interpretations grow out of the desire to make this point a line, to give it direction. The directions in which it can be sent, the uses to which it can be put by a culturally, professionally, and geographically diverse society are almost without limit. The possibilities make good scientists chary."
Author: Barry López
6. "While it is positive for young black males and females to learn discipline and self-responsibility, those attitudes, values, and habits of being can be taught with pedagogical strategies that are liberatory, that do not rely on coercive control and punishment to reinforce positive behavior."
Author: Bell Hooks
7. "Even harder was describing his sense that Shroom's death might have ruined him for anything else, because when he died? when I felt his soul pass through me? I loved him so much right then, I don't think I can ever have that kind of love for anybody again. So what was the point of getting married, having kids, raising a family if you knew you couldn't give them your very best love?"
Author: Ben Fountain
8. "Noone has yet succeeded in inventing a philosophy at once credible and self-consistent. Locke aimed at credibility, and achieved it at the expense of consistency. Most of the great philosophers have done the opposite. A philosophy which is not self-consistent cannot be wholly true, but a philosophy which is self-consistent can very well be wholly false. The most fruitful philosophies have contained glaring inconsistencies, but for that very reason have been partially true. There is no reason to suppose that a self-consistent system contains more truth than one which, like Locke's, is more or less wrong."
Author: Bertrand Russell
9. "Because we humans are big and clever enough to produce and utilize antibiotics and disinfectants, it is easy to convince ourselves that we have banished bacteria to the fringes of existence. Don't you believe it. Bacteria may not build cities or have interesting social lives, but they will be here when the Sun explodes. This is their planet, and we are on it only because they allow us to be."
Author: Bill Bryson
10. "We have a society in which one of the greatest things you can do is a platform to see victim status, and one of the qualifications for that is that you have these exquisitely tender feelings about things and sensibilities which are easily offended."
Author: Brit Hume
11. "If there's a thing I've learned in my life it's to not be afraid of the responsibility that comes with caring for other people. What we do for love: those things endure. Even if the people you do them for don't"
Author: Cassandra Clare
12. "His high spiced wares were made to sell, and they sold; and his thousands of readers could as rationally charge their delight in filth upon him, as a glutton can shift upon his cook the responsibility of his beastly excess."
Author: Charles Dickens
13. "The inclination to believe in the fantastic may strike some as a failure in logic, or gullibility, but it's really a gift. A world that might have Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster is clearly superior to one that definitely does not."
Author: Chris Van Allsburg
14. "The whole tendency of modern life is towards scientific planning and organisation, central control, standardisation, and specialisation. If this tendency was left to work itself out to its extreme conclusion, one might expect to see the state transformed into an immense social machine, all the individual components of which are strictly limited to the performance of a definite and specialised function, where there could be no freedom because the machine could only work smoothly as long as every wheel and cog performed its task with unvarying regularity. Now the nearer modern society comes to the state of total organisation, the more difficult it is to find any place for spiritual freedom and personal responsibility. Education itself becomes an essential part of the machine, for the mind has to be as completely measured and controlled by the techniques of the scientific expert as the task which it is being trained to perform."
Author: Christopher Henry Dawson
15. "To limit the press is to insult a nation; to prohibit reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves."
Author: Claude Adrien Helvetius
16. "In human studies, black cohosh has been found to decrease hot flashes associated with menopause. Unlike conventional estrogen effects on individuals predisposed to breast cancer, black cohosh has been shown in laboratory studies to inhibit cancer cells. Most studies used doses of 20–80 mg twice daily, providing 4–8 mg triterpene glycosides for up to six months. Melatonin—This hormone is produced in the pineal gland that, among other functions, helps sleep. Melatonin levels decline with age and may lead to the sleep disturbances common during menopause. Melatonin has been shown in laboratory studies to inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells. Melatonin acts as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant in the brain and other tissues like the intestine. Studies show that low melatonin levels increase breast cancer risk in women. So if you are having trouble sleeping consider 3–6 mg of melatonin before bed. It may boost your immune system and help you sleep."
Author: Daniel G. Amen
17. "Producing suits me because I have a business mind and a business sensibility."
Author: Donnie Wahlberg
18. "Considerînd deci Frumusetea ca fiind domeniul meu, urmatoarea mea grija se referea la tonul manifestarii sale supreme, iar toata experienta mea arata ca acest ton este cel al tristetii. Frumusetea de orice fel, în forma ei suprema, tulbura întotdeauna sufletul sensibil pîna la lacrimi. Melancolia este deci cel mai legitim dintre toate tonurile poetice."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
19. "Every prime minister ... has the responsibility to provide security for his people."
Author: Ehud Olmert
20. "To be really Bible-believing Christians we need to practice, simultaneously, at each step of the way, two biblical principles. One principle is that of the purity of the visible church. Scripture commands that we must do more than just talk about the purity of the visible church; we must actually practice it, even when it is costly. The second principle is that of an observable love among all true Christians. In the flesh we can stress purity without love, or we can stess love without purity; we cannot stress both simultaneously. To do so we must look moment by moment to the work of Christ and to the Holy Spirit. Without that, a stress on purity becomes hard, proud, and legalistic; likewise without it a stress on love becomes sheer compromise.Spiritually begins to have real meaning in our lives as we begin to exhibit simultaneously the holiness of God and the love of God. We never do this perfectly, but we must look to the living Christ to help us do it truly."
Author: Francis August Schaeffer
21. "Then they wondered if there were men in the stars. Why not? And as creation is harmonious, the inhabitants of Sirius ought to be huge, those of Mars middle-sized, those of Venus very small. Unless it is the same everywhere. There are businessmen, police up there; people trade, fight, dethrone their kings. Some shooting stars suddenly slid past, describing a course in the sky like the parabola of a monstrous rocket. ‘My Word,' said Bouvard, ‘look at those worlds disappearing.' Pecuchet replied: ‘If our world in its turn danced about, the citizens of the stars would be no more impressed than we are now. Ideas like that are rather humbling.' ‘What is the point of it all?' ‘Perhaps there isn't a point.' ‘Yet…' and Pecuchet repeated the word two or three times, without finding anything more to say."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
22. "Only the closest collaborators of the Fuehrer know how difficult is the burden of this responsibility; how sorrowful are the hours during which decisions must be made which bear upon the well being and the fate of all of Germany."
Author: Hjalmar Schacht
23. "The people gave me the responsibility of building the future of this nation. And I did it with honor."
Author: Hosni Mubarak
24. "I have this to say to the people: go the polls and vote for the candidate of your choice... This is your responsibility; do not neglect it."
Author: Hosni Mubarak
25. "Her wish for a harmonious, organized world denied her the reckless possibilities of wrongdoing. Mayhem and destruction were too chaotic for her tastes, and she did not have it in her to be cruel."
Author: Ian McEwan
26. "Un soldato nemico non era mai solo - un essere umano di fronte a un altro - ma portava con sé una folla innumerevole di fantasmi, i fantasmi degli assenti e dei morti. Non ci si rivolgeva a un uomo ma a una moltitudine invisibile; così nessuna delle parole pronunciate era detta semplicemente e come tale ascoltata; si aveva sempre la strana sensazione che a parlare fosse soltanto una bocca, che parlava per tante altre, mute."
Author: Irène Némirovsky
27. "Traveling together into what the poet Adrienne Rich has called ‘the cratered night of female memory,' they undertook a shared process of self-discovery, working together to probe the possibility of woman's creative power. Through their exploration of hermetic and magical paths, they developed a common pictorial language, derived from the realms of domestic life, the fairy tale and the dream."
Author: Janet Kaplan
28. "I love him. Have loved him through each of his growing stages. But I do not want him to stay the same. I want him to grow. To mature. To become everything God has in mind for him. To be a man. Accept responsibility. Be a leader...And he will. I have every confidence he will. He's on the right track-your brother. Following the leading of his Lord. I want him to change, but I never want him to leave behind the solid base he has already established for who he is deep inside. But I also want him to build and develop and carefully nurture that inner self. And as that happens, there will be changes."
Author: Janette Oke
29. "I was sure that if I could just scale this fortress I would reach a height with a sunny blue sky and fresh air. I would stand there and experience myself as redeemable rather than ruined. I had no idea what kind of animal I was facing.If you had suggested to me at the time that my problems were due to some faulty wiring, some chemistry experiment gone wrong in my brain, I'd have said you were suggesting that I not take responsibility for my own choices. Now I know I was wrong. Now when I'm haunted by the specter of depression, I recognize it for what it is. I don't systematically dismantle my life every time depression pops out from behind a tree. But at that time, I was sure it was fixable if the world would just change faster, or if I would."
Author: Jillian Lauren
30. "Ah, gençligimin mabedi o sevgili nerelerde! Kaybolacak idiyse onu ne diye tanidim ben?.. Kendi kendime: Çilginsin! diyorum, artik bulunmasi olanaksiz bir sey ariyorsun!Ama ben ona, o sevgiliye bir zamanlar sarilmistim. Kalbinin atislarini duymustum. Yüce yaradilisi önünde kendimi benliküstüne yükselmis gibi görürüm. Çünkü onun yaninda ne kadar olabileceksem o kadar sezgili olurdum.Hey Tanrim! O zaman ruhumun hiçbir yetenegi bosa çikar miydi? Yüregimin tüm evreni kucaklamadaki sasilacak gücü onun önünde bütünüyle kendini ortaya koymaz miydi? Yüregin derinliklerinden yükselen ürpermeler, iki ruhun yüz yüze simseklenmesi aramizda her günün, bir alisverisine benzemez miydi? Ah, onunla her sohbetimiz ve igneli sakalarimiz dahil, her sözümüz inci gibi inceltilmisti, ben bunu bilirim...Asla unutamayacagim, onun ruhunun durulugunu, saglamligini, onun o göksel yumusakligini asla unutamayacagim..."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
31. "Escribir para mí, es hacer el esfuerzo de soñar."
Author: Julio Cortázar
32. "After dinner Natasha went to the clavichord, at Prince Andrey's request, and began singing. Prince Andrey stood at the window, talking to the ladies, and listened to her. In the middle of a phrase, Prince Andrey ceased speaking, and felt suddenly a lump in his throat from tears, the possibility of which he had never dreamed of in himself. He looked at Natasha singing, and something new and blissful stirred in his soul. He was happy, and at the same time he was sad. He certainly had nothing to weep about, but he was ready to weep. For what? For his past love? For the little princess? For his lost illusions? For his hopes for the future? Yes, and no. The chief thing which made him ready to weep was a sudden, vivid sense of the fearful contrast between something infinitely great and illimitable existing in him, and something limited and material, which he himself was, and even she was. This contrast made his heart ache, and rejoiced him while she was singing."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
33. "Kral'in basinda püsküllü kirmizi uzun bir külah vardi; perperisan bir yigin gibi çöküp kalmisti; yüksek sesle horlayip duruyordu; Tumbadiz'in deyimiyle neredeyse girtlagi çatlayacakti.Çok ince ve düsünceli bir kizcagiz olan Alice, 'Umarim bu islak çimende üsütmez,' dedi.'Su an düs görüyor,' dedi Tumbadik. 'Sence düsünde ne görüyor?''Kim bunu bilebilir ki!' dedi Alice.'Tabii ki seni!' diye haykirdi Tumbadik, zafer kazanmisçasina ellerini saplatarak. 'Seni düsünde görmeseydi eger, nerede olurdun dersin?''Su an oldugum yerde tabii ki,' dedi Alice.'Olmazdin!' diye karsilik verdi Tumbadik küçümsercesine. 'Hiçbir yerde olmazdin. Sen hepsi hepsi onun düsündeki bir seysin!''Ola ki Kral uyanacak olsa,' diye ekledi Tumbadiz, 'bir mum gibi...o dakika...sönerdin!''Sönmezdim!' diye avazi çiktiginca bagirdi Alice öfkeye kapilarak. 'Üstelik ben onun düsündeki bir seysem, siz nesiniz o zaman?''Aynisi!' dedi Tumbadiz.'Tipkisinin aynisi!' diye haykirdi Tumbadik."
Author: Lewis Carroll
34. "If magic is energy, then using it is about guiding it's flow rather than possessing it and squirreling it away. Some people seem to me to approach magic as though adding spells and charms and even gurus to their museum – sometimes a secret museum. My worry is that this leaves you weighed down with exhibits too precious to use or to let go of when you need to move on."
Author: Mhairi Simon
35. "The artist glanced at the inflexible image of king, commander, dame, and allegory, that stood around, on the best of which might have been bestowed the questionable praise that it looked as if a living man had here been changed to wood, and that not only the physical, but the intellectual and spiritual part, partook of the stolid transformation. But in not a single instance did it seem as if the wood were imbibing the ethereal essence of humanity. What a wide distinction is here! and how far the slightest portion of the latter merit have outvalued the utmost degree of the former!"
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
36. "All life is rife with possibilities. Seeds have possibilities, but all their tomorrows are caught by the patterning of their life cycle. Animals have possibilities that are greater than that of a fir tree or a blade of grass. Still, though, for most animals, the pattern of instinct, the patterns of their lives, are very strong. Humanity has a far greater range of possibilities, especially the very young. Who will children grow up to be? Who will they marry, what will they believe, what will they create? Creation is a very powerful seed of possibility."
Author: Patricia Briggs
37. "But as he stands before imminent death, he grasps its nature also, and the cosmic import of the step to come. His creative imagination constructs new, fearful prospects behind the curtain of death, and he sees that even there is no sanctuary found. And now he can discern the outline of his biologico-cosmic terms: He is the universe's helpless captive, kept to fall into nameless possibilities. From this moment on, he is in a state of relentless panic."
Author: Peter Wessel Zapffe
38. "Degeri olan bir kimse yasayacak miyim yoksa ölecek miyim diye düsünmemelidir. bir is görürken yalnizca dogru mu egri mi, yürekli bir insan gibi mi yoksa tabansizca mi davrandigini düsünmelidir."
Author: Plato
39. "This is unbelievable," James said. "I mean, you guys are out here planning to build an armored car out of my dad's old, and I mean old, car. Mom is in the house making cookies like this is just an everyday occurrence. Once this starts, you guys probably won't live through it, and nobody is acting like it's a big deal. I don't know that I'm comfortable with my parents preparing for their funeral." "Everyone has to die of something, son," Rick said. James looked stunned. "So you are thinking about that as a possibility? Then why go to all the trouble of putting armor on the car and putting in that big engine?" "Because I have to get back to the starting point, which in this case is the Deal's Gap," Rick answered. "And the car won't make it if I don't make modifications." "Once they figure out what you're doing and where you're going, they'll ambush you. You won't be able to get out of it. They'll gun you and Mom down in cold blood." James was trying to hide the emotion from his face."
Author: Rich Hoffman
40. "When the pope sits on the chamber pot to shit, does he believe in his own infallibility? Does not every imposter occasionally recognize his own hairy, homely humanity? Perhaps not; worn long enough, sometimes the Mask of Authority becomes the man. Even looking in a mirror, he will see the sacred Mask and not his own ordinary human face."
Author: Robert Anton Wilson
41. "O Lord, refresh our sensibilities. Give us this day our daily taste. Restore to us soups that spoons will not sink in, and sauces which are never the same twice. Raise up among us stews with more gravy than we have bread to blot it with, and casseroles that put starch and substance in our limp modernity. Take away our fear of fat and make us glad of the oil which ran upon Aaron's beard. Give us pasta with a hundred fillings, and rice in a thousand variations. Above all, give us grace to live as true men - to fast till we come to a refreshed sense of what we have and then to dine gratefully on all that comes to hand. Drive far from us, O Most Bountiful, all creatures of air and darkness; cast out the demons that possess us; deliver us from the fear of calories and the bondage of nutrition; and set us free once more in our own land, where we shall serve Thee as Thou hast blessed us - with the dew of heaven, the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine. Amen."
Author: Robert Farrar Capon
42. "When I tell someone that the most important thing a young woman can do to avoid being raped is to avoid places with lots of young men (and if you absolutely have to go to those place, don't drink) the dumb responses range from: 'Girls have a right to have fun' to 'You're just blaming the victim' all the way up to the ludicrous, 'A woman should be able to walk naked into a biker bar and not be bothered.' These are political ideals. They might even be the way the world should work. They are not the way the world actually works. The responsibility for self-protection has to rest with the potential victim because the potential rapist has no interest whatsoever in her safety or rights. The potential victim is the one who cares."
Author: Rory Miller
43. "But that citizen's perception was also at one with the truth in recognizing that the very brutality of the means by which the IRA were pursuing change was destructive of the trust upon which new possibilities would have to be based."
Author: Seamus Heaney
44. "The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them."
Author: Steve Maraboli
45. "The scriptures present a God who delights in genocide, rape, slavery, and the execution of nonconformists, and for millennia those writings were used to rationalize the massacre of infidels, the ownership of women, the beating of children, dominion over animals, and the persecution of heretics and homosexuals. Humanitarian reforms such as the elimination of cruel punishment, the dissemination of empathy-inducing novels, and the abolition of slavery were met with fierce opposition in their time by ecclesiastical authorities and their apologists. The elevation of parochial values to the realm of the sacred is a license to dismiss other people's interests, and an imperative to reject the possibility of compromise."
Author: Steven Pinker
46. "ShanTu said that we must set the soul free from the body and its lusts. Having thus got rid of the foolishness of the flesh, we shall be pure. While an admirable goal, the sisterhood has not found this practical. For whatever purpose, body and soul are joined. Denying one's bodily lusts is about as effective as prohibition, which is to say not effective at all."
Author: Susan Cartwright
47. "The thing that fascinates me is that the way I came to film and television is extinct. Then there were gatekeepers, it was prohibitively expensive to make a film, to be a director you had to be an entrepreneur to raise money."
Author: Tom Hooper
48. "In some country patriotism is shown only for cricket. When it comes to responsibilities' they started blaming their own country, politician, people, and others. And ends up praising the western."
Author: Vivek Thangaswamy
49. "The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope."
Author: Wendell Berry
50. "Whereas our words represent our person, our character is our very person. A person's usefulness, the things which can be entrusted to him, the responsibilities he can bear, and the things he is able to accomplish altogether depend on his character. A carpenter determines the use of a piece of wood based on its quality. Laziness ruins one's usefulness. Accordingly, character has very much to do with the Lord's service. Consider those persons in the Bible whom God used. They were used by God because they possessed a character that was fit for His use. Their character was simply their person. They became persons useful to God because their character could be used by Him. Since Abraham, Moses, and Paul all had an excellent character, God greatly used them. The destiny of our usefulness to the Lord hinges on our character. Whether we are useful before God depends upon the suitability of our human character."
