Author: Baruch Spinoza

So as not to feel Time's horrible burden that breaks your shoulders and bows you down, you must get drunk without ceasing.But what with? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you choose. But get drunk.And if, at some time, on the steps of a palace, in the green grass of a ditch, in the bleak solitude of your room, you are waking up when drunkenness has already abated, ask the wind, the wave, a star, the clock, all that which flees, all that which groans, all that which rolls, all that which sings, all that which speaks, ask them what time it is; and the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock will reply: 'It is time to get drunk! So that you may not be the martyred slaves of Time, get drunk; get drunk, and never pause for rest! With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you choose!'-- Charles Baudelaire, tr. Michael Hamburger"
Author: Charles Baudelaire

Author: Colum McCann
11. "There is point in your life when you come face to face with the reality that you cannot take another step on your own. For me, I had never experienced that point, but depression brought me there. I have slowly, painfully and continually been confronted by my brokenness. Coming to terms with the fact that I am broken has been at the center of my accepting my being loved.For me, now, there exists a sense of desperate need for what God brings to my spiritual and mental self. Without His voice I cannot cope with the darkness, but with His whisper of "you are My beloved", I can take a step each day away from the chasm. I am broken but not beyond mending, not beyond love. It has been this desperation that has opened a crevice in which I am seeing Him for the first time. He is why my soul can find some peace even when my mind is dark and numb. It is this love that continually has brought me back from the edge of the impostor to the honesty of my broken, inner self"
Author: David Hulon Hood
12. "And as he drove on, the rainclouds dragged down the sky after him, for, though he did not know it, Rob McKenna was a Rain God. All he knew was that his working days were miserable and he had a succession of lousy holidays. All the clouds knew was that they loved him and wanted to be near him, to cherish him, and to water him."
Author: Douglas Adams
13. "How the unforgettable faces of dusk would blend to her, the myriad footsteps, a thousand overtures, would blend to her footsteps; and there would be more drunkenness than wine in the softness of her eyes on his."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
14. "Liebe Kennt der allein, der ohne Hoffnung liebt."
Author: Friedrich Schiller
15. "Each instinct and passion of man is amoral; it is only the abuse of these passions that makes them wrong. There is nothing wrong about hunger, but there is something wrong about gluttony; there is no sin in thirst, but there is a sin in drunkenness; there is nothing wrong with a man who seeks economic security, but there is something wrong with a man who is avaricious; there is nothing to be despised in knowledge, but there is something to be condemned in pride; there is nothing wrong with the flesh, but there is something wrong in the abuse of the flesh. Just as dirt is matter in the wrong place, so sin is flesh in the wrong place. Sex has its place in that area of life designed for its fruition, but the misuse of it outside of that natural and supernatural bond is wrong."
Author: Fulton J. Sheen
16. "...poverty is not a vice, that's a true saying. Yet I know that drunkenness too is not a virtue and that's even truer. But destitution, dear sir, destitution is a vice. In poverty you may still retain your innate nobility of soul , but in destitution-never-no-one. For destitution a man is not chased out of society with a stick, he is swept out with a broom to make it as humiliating as possible; and quite right, too, for in destitution I am the first to humiliate my self."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
17. "Ich kenne keinen Absatz, keine Veränderung. Ich bin immer nur ein; ein ununterbrochenes Sehnen und Fassen, eine Glut, ein Strom."

"Zugleich dachte ich: so wie ich jetzt mich anziehe und ausgehe, den Professor besuche und mehr oder weniger erlogene Artigkeiten mit ihm austausche, alles ohne es eigentlich zu wollen, so tun und leben und handeln die meisten Menschen Tag für Tag, Stunde um Stunde zwanghaft und ohne es eigentlich zu wollen, machen Besuche, führen Unterhaltungen, sitzen Amts- und Bureaustunden ab, alles zwanghaft, mechanisch, ungewollt, alles könnte ebensogut von Maschinen gemacht werden oder unterbleiben; und diese ewig fortlaufende Mechanik ist es, die sie hindert, gleich mir, Kritik am eigenen Leben zu übenm seine Dummheit und Seichtheit, seine hoffnungslose Trauer und Öde zu erkennen und zu fühlen."
Author: Hermann Hesse

Kennedy, was told by military leaders and civilian officials that the Kingdom of Laos - of no conceivable strategic importance to the U.S. - required the presence of American troops and perhaps even tactical nuclear weapons.

Author: Jo Nesbø

Author: Jocelyn Soriano
26. "Ever since John Kennedy, Democrats have had a weakness for dashing younger men like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and, I suppose, Jimmy Carter. They balance their tickets with senior statesmen - Lyndon Johnson, Joe Biden, Walter Mondale. (Al Gore was young but played ancient)."
Author: Joe Klein

She closed her eyes and leaned forward until her forehead and the tip of her nose touched the cool glass. "I love him beyond reason," she whispered. "He's a stranger to me now, and yet he is still so familiar. I can't imagine a sweeter agony, having him so close."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
33. "It was likely that no one had been surprised, however, as it was clear that Aline and Mckenna belonged together. There was something invisible and yet irrefutable that made them a couple. Perhaps it was the way both of them stole quick glances at each other when one though the other wasn't looking... glances of wonder and hunger."
Author: Lisa Kleypas

Author: N. T. Wright
37. "A whole section of the family tree is pruned and primped and assessed as I politely sit there. Overall, I detect that the tree is fine: its leaves gently turning in the breeze of life.

Author: Padgett Powell

40. "It is not clear who will bring to the Whitehouse those useful commodities of vivid language, a sense of history and most important - a sense of humour, but Johnson himself will provide many other attributes. He is effective precisely because he is so determined, industrious, personal and even humourless, particularly in dealing with Congress. (…) Kennedy had a detached and even donnish willingness to grant a merit in the other fellow's argument. Johnson is not so inclined to retreat and grants nothing in an argument, not even equal time. Ask not what you have done for Lyndon Johnson, but what you have done for him lately. This may not be the most attractive quality of the new administration but it works. The lovers of style are not too happy with the new administration, but the lovers of substance are not complaining."
Author: Robert A. Caro

It took a good, and heart-rending, half hour of searching, but as soon as she saw him, sitting very close to the bars of his kennel and gazing up at her with dark and melting eyes, she knew he was the one. She did not want a large animal, nor did she relish the idea of a yapping lap dog. This one was exactly the right size. Dog size."
Author: Rosamund Pilcher
45. "In the case of Marilyn and John Kennedy, I think they did affect change."
Author: Sally Kirkland
46. "Es ist, wie wenn man sich selbst im Spiegel betrachtet und immer wieder seinen Namen sagt. Und irgendwann kommt einem nichts mehr real vor. Genauso geht es mir manchmal, aber ich brauche keine Stunde vor dem Spiegel dafür. Es geht ganz schnell, dass mir die Dinge entgleiten. Ich öffne die Augen und sehe nichts mehr. Und ich atme ganz schwer und versuche, noch irgendetwas zu erkennen, aber ich erkenne nichts. Es passiert nicht sehr häufig, aber wenn, jagt es mir wirklich Angst ein."
Author: Stephen Chbosky

Although he liked his Jelly Belly's mixed up, he didn't like banana, but, since it took too much effort to pull them out himself, he generally tried to talk someone else into doing it. If that didn't work, he just ate 'em.- Kenny Traveler"
Author: Susan Elizabeth Phillips
49. "We wanted to be certain they didn't have a bigger deficit, and Kennedy agreed with me."
Author: Wilbur Mills
50. "Who cares for his causes of complaint? Are you to break your heart to set his mind at ease? No man under heaven deserves these sacrifices from us women. Men! They are the enemies of our innocence and our peace - they drag us away from our parents' love and our sisters' friendship - they take us body and soul to themselves, and fasten our helpless lives to theirs as they chain up a dog to his kennel. And what does the best of them give us in return?"
Author: Wilkie Collins
