2. "But no, music lasted longer than anything it inspired. After LPs, cassettes, and CDs, when matrimony was about to decay into its component elements—alimony and acrimony—the songs startled him and regained all their previous, pre-Rachel meanings, as if they had not only conjured her but then dismissed her, as if she had been entirely their illusion. He listened to the old songs again, years later on that same dark promenade, when every CD he had ever owned sat nestled in that greatest of all human inventions, the iPod, dialed up and yielding to his fingertip's tap. The songs now offered him, in exchange for all he had lost, the sensation that there was something still to long for, still, something still approaching, and all that had gone before was merely prologue to an unimaginably profound love yet to seize him. If there was any difference now, it was only that his hunger for music had become more urgent, less a daily pleasure than a daily craving."
Author: Arthur Phillips

Los cínicos han recomendado la pobreza y la restricción de las necesidades; Sócrates ha prescrito la virtud como una cosa antigua buena; el primer estoico a quien uno encuentra, si bien sea el propio Séneca -que tiene quinientas mesas de madera de limonero-, ensalza la continencia, recomienda la verdad, la paciencia en la adversidades, la fortaleza en el infortunio; y todo eso es como el trigo viejo, que se comen los ratones, pero que la gente rechaza porque huele mal."
Author: Henryk Sienkiewicz

Author: Michael Hutchence
17. "If Catherine would just let go' had been their mantra for so long. Now Mamah understood Catherine's dilemma better. She wouldn't divorce Frank because she feared he wouldn't pay her child support and alimony. And there was revenge to be sure: By refusing to divorce after twenty years of accommodating him, Catherine was squeezing recompense from Frank for a longstanding emotional debt. But that was only part of it. Catherine held on because she still loved him, and remembered what it was like to be loved by him. Nothing else in the world compared to the incandescent joy Frank brought to his best beloved."
Author: Nancy Horan

Author: Natascha Kampusch
19. "Quizas te sorprenda que me acuerde con tanto detalle de ese dia, de esas horas (...) A mi tambien me sorprende. Solo recordamos con tanta precision los dias marcados por algun acontecimiento historico del que hemos sido testigos, o por la muerte de algun familiar muy querido. Al hablar de un dia asi damos importancia capital a los detalles mas insignificantes; decimos: era martes, la una y media de la tarde, veintiocho de octubre; o bien: yo me encontraba en un rincon, alrededor de las dos y media llego el medico, unos minutos antes de las tres el enfermo pidio una limonada y, cuando murio, el reloj marcaba exactamente las tres y cuatro minutos. Los detalles no tienen ningun sentido en si, pero continuamos arrastrando su recuerdoa una escala exagerada. No hay otra forma de entender..., asi que nos agarramos a los desechos del mundo real, pues lo ocurrido es tan incomprensible que necesitamos algunos puntos de apoyo para no perder el equilibrio."
Author: Sándor Márai
20. "The lobby of the Nelson Hotel always smells of the river -- it's in the pores of the place -- but this evening the smell is heavier than usual. It's a smell that makes us think of bad ideas, blown investments, forged checks, deteriorating health, stolen office supplies, unpaid alimony, empty promises, skin tumors, lost ambition, abandoned sample cases filled with cheap novelties, dead hope, dead skin, and fallen arches.This is the kind of place you don't come to unless you've been here before and all your other options are pretty much foreclosed. It's a place where men who left their families two decades before now lie on narrow beds with pee-stained mattresses, coughing and smoking cigarettes."
Author: Stephen King
