1. "It's a very salutary thing to realize that the rather dull universe in which most of us spend most of our time is not the only universe there is. I think it's healthy that people should have this experience."
Author: Aldous Huxley
2. "To see ourselves as others see us is a most salutary gift. Hardly less important is the capacity to see others as they see themselves. But what if these others belong to a different species and inhabit a radically alien universe? For example, how can the sane get to know what it actually feels like to be mad?"
Author: Aldous Huxley
3. "False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness."
Author: Charles Darwin
4. "I looked for that which is not, nor can be,And hope deferred made my heart sick, in truth;But years must pass before a hope of youthIs resigned utterly.I watched and waited with a steadfast will:And, tho' the object seemed to fly awayThat I so longed for, ever, day by day,I watched and waited still.Sometimes I said,-'This thing shall be no more;My expectation wearies, and shall cease;I will resign it now, and be at peace.'-Yet never gave it o'er.Sometimes I said,-'It is an empty nameI long for; to a name why should I giveThe peace of all the days I have to live?'-Yet gave it all the same.Alas! thou foolish one,- alike unfitFor healthy joy and salutary pain,Thou knowest the chase useless, and againTurnest to follow it."
Author: Christina Rossetti
5. "Lo aveva accolto nella sua vita senza riserve. Non gli aveva chiesto rinunce. Gli aveva aperto la casa, l'ufficio, perfino le carte del lavoro. Un altro, al posto suo, e soprattutto lui stesso, pensava, avrebbe fatto i salti di gioia. Invece Livio si sentiva privato di una cosa importante. Ad ogni incontro con lei si accorgeva di dipendere un altro po' dalla sua bocca chiusa, da quel secondo posto accettato con naturalezza. Come se la certezza che l'assetto della sua vita non fosse minacciato da Dorina, invece di rassicurarlo, gli mettesse dentro l'inquietudine. Quante volte, nel salutarla per andarsene, la guardava cercandole uno straccio di rancore. Quanto avrebbe dato per un'alzata di sopracciglia, una smorfia da niente. Per non sentirsi addosso quella ridicola infelicità."
Author: Diego De Silva
6. "Arthur Deikman's prime and particular contribution, apart from drawing attention to the problem, was to point out how much cultish behaviour goes on unrecognised, in, for instance, business life or in apparently harmless organisations, religious or philanthropic. It is useful to ask oneself the question: do I feel superior because I belong to - whatever it is? Do I look down on people outside? Perhaps the most easily seen feature of a cult s that: WE are better than THEM. It is salutary to recognise how often in a day we feel disapproval or superiority, matching ourselves with 'outsiders'..."
Author: Doris Lessing
7. "Our only choice is between irrespirable truths and salutary frauds."
Author: Emil Cioran
8. "L'esperienza serve a valutare la vita per quel che è e non per quello che si vorrebbe che fosse"
Author: Emilio Lussu
9. "Mesmo aos cacos uma parte de mim ainda pode lutar, deve lutar, precisa lutar."
Author: Filipe Russo
10. "Trellis wants his salutary book to be read by all. He realizes that purely a moralizing tract would not reach the public. Therefore he is putting plenty of smut into his book."
Author: Flann O'Brien
11. "O que a populaça aprendeu a crer sem razão quem o poderia derrubar à sua vista com razão? Na praça pública convence-se com gestos. As razões inspiram desconfiança à populaça. E se alguma vez triunfa lá a verdade, perguntai a vós mesmos com salutar desconfiança? 'Que grande erro lutaria em prol dela?"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
12. "[I]t is that we are too apt to despise what appears to be neither good nor beautiful, and thus we lose what is helpful and salutary."
Author: George Sand
13. "Staring at a world too horrible to comprehend, believing -- by dint of ignorance and innocence -- that beneath this unbearable contract of guilt and blame there is always an older contract that may bind and release in a more salutary way."
Author: Gregory Maguire
14. "Alone let him constantly meditate in solitude on that which is salutary for his soul, for he who meditates in solitude attains supreme bliss."
Author: Guru Nanak
15. "A coragem residia em lutar para tentar ultrapassar esse medo, em erguer-se para fazer o que tinha de ser feito."
Author: Guy Gavriel Kay
16. "It was Plutarch, you know, and nothing intrinsically American that prevented George Washington being a King..."
Author: H.G. Wells
17. "It is not all books that are as dull as their readers. There are probably words addressed to our condition exactly, which, if we could really hear and understand, would be more salutary than the morning or the spring to our lives, and possibly put a new aspect on the face of things for us. How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book. The book exists for us perchance which will explain our miracles and reveal new ones. The at present unutterable things we may find somewhere uttered. These same questions that disturb and puzzle and confound us have in their turn occurred to all the wise men; not one has been omitted; and each has answered them, according to his ability, by his words and his life."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
18. "É muito mais lisonjeiro,(...)lutar-se por alguma coisa bela e ideal e saber ao mesmo tempo que não se conseguirá alcançá-la. Os ideais serão algo que se possa alcançar? Viveremos para cabar com a morte? Não, viveremos para temê-la e também para amá-la, e precisamente por causa da morte é que nossa vida vez por outra resplandece tão radiosa num belo instante."
Author: Hermann Hesse
19. "Ciabattari is a master of transformation as she gives these stories of loss, woe, crisis and collapse the salutary and sometimes bracing pleasures of plain good fiction."--Kirkus Reviews"
Author: Jane Ciabattari
20. "För att ta livet av en människa behöver man ju inte sikta med Buck Jones revolver och göra pangpang med den. Det var inte så jag menade. Utan man kan också döda en människa i sitt hjärta. Man gör så att man slutar att tycka om den människan. Och en vacker dag är den människan död."
Author: José Mauro De Vasconcelos
21. "But rituals turn us all into fucking idiots. Like those birds that sleep with their heads facing backwards because their ancestors slept with their heads under their wings. Plutarch says carrying new wives across thresholds is stupid because we don't remember that it refers to the rape of the Sabine women - and that's fucking Plutarch, two thousand years ago. We still draw the Reaper with a scythe. We should draw him driving a John Deere for Archer Daniels Midland."
Author: Josh Bazell
22. "Though I myself am an atheist, I openly profess religion in the sense just mentioned, that is, a nature religion. I hate the idealism that wrenches man out of nature; I am not ashamed of my dependency on nature; I openly confess that the workings of nature affect not only my surface, my skin, my body, but also my core, my innermost being, that the air I breathe in bright weather has a salutary effect not only on my lungs but also on my mind, that the light of the sun illumines not only my eyes but also my spirit and my heart. And I do not, like a Christian, believe that such dependency is contrary to my true being or hope to be delivered from it. I know further that I am a finite moral being, that I shall one day cease to be. But I find this very natural and am therefore perfectly reconciled to the thought."
Author: Ludwig Feuerbach
23. "Se achar que não valho nada, serei nada. Deixarei que os outros falem, decidam, vivam por mim. Porém, se acreditar que apesar dos naturais limites e do medo todo eu mereço uma dose de coisas positivas, vou lutar por isso. Vou até permitir que os outros me amem."
Author: Lya Luft
24. "As long as reading is for us the instigator whose magic keys have opened the door to those dwelling-places deep within us that we would not have known how to enter, its role in our lives is salutary. It becomes dangerous, on the other hand, when, instead of awakening us to the personal life of the mind, reading tends to take its place, when the truth no longer appears to us as an ideal which we can realize only by the intimate progress of our own thought and the efforts of our heart, but as something material, deposited between the leaves of books like a honey fully prepared by others and which we need only take the trouble to reach down from the shelves of libraries and then sample passively in a perfect repose of mind and body."
Author: Marcel Proust
25. "Ma... dirlo così... come potrei. Come si può valutare una cosa simile... il disonore?""Non dobbiamo valutare una cosa simile, signora. Deve dirmi che somma le piacerebbe avere."
Author: Marguerite Duras
26. "Plutarch taught me high thoughts; he elevated me above the wretched sphere of my own reflections, to admire and love the heroes of past ages. Many things I read surpassed my understanding and experience. I had a very confused knowledge of kingdoms, wide extents of country, mighty rivers, and boundless seas. This book developed new and mightier scenes of action. I read of men concerned in public affairs, governing or massacring their species. I felt the greatest ardour for virtue rise within me, and abhorrence for vice."
Author: Mary Shelley
27. "History of science is a relay race, my painter friend. Copernicus took over his flag from Aristarchus, from Cicero, from Plutarch; and Galileo took that flag over from Copernicus."
Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
28. "- Uma coisa é certa, disse Southman, vocês, daquele lado, e nós, deste lado, temos uma única luta, a afirmação dos negros...- Irrita-me, senhor Benjamin, esse discurso da afirmação dos negros.- Irrita-o porquê?- O que diria você se encontrasse uns brancos proclamando o orgulho de serem brancos: não diria que eram nazis, racistas?- Não pode comparar, meu amigo. São percursos diferentes...- Ora, diferentes, diferentes... Por que somos tão complacentes connosco próprios?- A verdade é só uma, afirmou Benjamin, nós, os negros, temos que nos unir...- É o contrário.- O contrário, como? Sugere que nos devemos desunir?- Nós temos que lutar para deixarmos de ser pretos, para sermos simplesmente pessoas."
Author: Mia Couto
29. "Handling these plants and animals, taking back the production and the preparation of even just some part of our food, has the salutary effect of making visible again many of the lines of connection that the supermarket and the "home-meal replacement" have succeeded in obscuring. yet of course never actually eliminated. To do so is to take back a measure of responsibility, too, to become, at the very least, a little less glib in one's pronouncements."
Author: Michael Pollan
30. "I think evangelicals would do better if they concentrated less on bolstering the formal authority of the Scripture - which I certainly would want to affirm - and more on displaying how biblical texts can shape lives in salutary ways, how they are fruitful texts, how they are texts one can live according to."
Author: Miroslav Volf
31. "For any victim, particularly us Americans, it is difficult to see ourselves through the eyes of our offender. But for any victim it is the most salutary thing to do."
Author: Miroslav Volf
32. "If your friend wishes to read your 'Plutarch's Lives,' 'Shakespeare,' or 'The Federalist Papers,' tell him gently but firmly, to buy a copy. You will lend him your car or your coat - but your books are as much a part of you as your head or your heart."
Author: Mortimer J. Adler
33. "A King, by disallowing Acts of this salutary nature, from being the father of his people, degenerated into a Tyrant and forfeits all rights to his subjects' obedience."
Author: Patrick Henry
34. "Each time he took a walk, he felt as though he were leaving himself behind, and by giving himself up to the movement of the streets, by reducing himself to a seeing eye, he was able to escape the obligation to think, and this, more than anything else, brought him a measure of peace, a salutary emptiness within...By wandering aimlessly, all places became equal and it no longer mattered where he was. On his best walks he was able to feel that he was nowhere. And this, finally was all he ever asked of things: to be nowhere."
Author: Paul Auster
35. "The Persian VersionTruth-loving Persians do not dwell uponThe trivial skirmish fought near Marathon.As for the Greek theatrical traditionWhich represents that summer's expeditionNot as a mere reconnaisance in forceBy three brigades of foot and one of horse(Their left flank covered by some obsoleteLight craft detached from the main Persian fleet)But as a grandiose, ill-starred attemptTo conquer Greece - they treat it with contempt;And only incidentally refuteMajor Greek claims, by stressing what reputeThe Persian monarch and the Persian nationWon by this salutary demonstration:Despite a strong defence and adverse weatherAll arms combined magnificently together."
Author: Robert Graves
36. "One salutary development in recent ethical theorizing is the widespread recognition that no short argument will serve to eliminate any of the major metaethical positions. Such theories have to weave together views in semantics, epistemology, moral psychology and metaphysics. The comprehensive, holistic character of much recent theorizing suggests the futility of fastening on just a single sort of argument to refute a developed version of realism or antirealism. No one any longer thinks that ethical naturalism can be undermined in a single stroke by the open question argument, or that appeal to the descriptive semantics of moral discourse is sufficient to refute noncognitivism."
Author: Russ Shafer Landau
37. "To be of no church is dangerous. Religion, of which the rewards are distant, and which is animated only by faith and hope, will glide by degrees out of the mind unless it be invigorated and reimpressed by external ordinances, by stated calls to worship, and the salutary influence of example."
Author: Samuel Johnson
38. "I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world."[As quoted in Plutarch's Of Banishment]"
Author: Socrates
39. "Almost every sin is committed for the sake of sensual pleasure; and sensual pleasure is overcome by hardship and distress arising either voluntarily from repentance, or else involuntarily as a result of some salutary and providential reversal. ‘For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged; but when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, so that we should not be condemned with the world.' (1 Cor. 11:31-32)."
Author: St. Gregory The Theologian
40. "In 'Plutarch,' her voice begins to come out; there are actual 2,000-year-old quotes from Cleopatra, and they are sly and saucy."
Author: Stacy Schiff
41. "O auto-engano é talvez o mais cruel de todos os motivos, pois faz com que nos julguemos corretos quando estamos errados e nos encoraja a lutar quando deveríamos nos render. Nos desenhos animados e filmes, os vilões são degenerados que enrolam os bigodes e dão gargalhadas de júbilo pela própria maldade. Na vida real, os vilões estão convencidos de sua integridade."
Author: Steven Pinker
42. "Segundo ele, o coração do homem era como a terra, metade iluminado pelo sol e metade pela sombra. (...) «Uma parte de nós vive cá em baixo e outra tende para as alturas. Viver é apenas ter consciência disso, sabê-lo, lutar para que a luz não desapareça, vencida pela sombra. Desconfie de quem é perfeito», dizia-me, «de quem tem as soluções já prontas no bolso, desconfie de tudo excepto daquilo que o coração lhe disser.»"
Author: Susanna Tamaro
43. "Of course you are. The tributes were necessary to the Games, too. Until they weren't," I say. "And then we were very disposable - right, Plutarch?"
Author: Suzanne Collins
44. "When I ask Plutarch about his absence, he just shakes his head and says, "He couldnt face it.""Haymitch? Not able to face something? Wanted a day off, more likely," I say."I think his actual words were 'I couldn't face it without a bottle,'" says Plutarch."
Author: Suzanne Collins
45. "Oh, you're one who— I laugh, remembering him splashing back into the punch bowl.Yes. And you'll be pleased to know I've never recovered, says Plutarch.I want to point out that twenty-two dead tributes will never recover from the Games he helped create, either. But I only say, good. So, you're the Head Gamemaker this year? That must be a big honor."
Author: Suzanne Collins
46. "Pripremate se za novi rat, Plutarch?" upitam."Oh, trenutno ne. Sada smo u onom zlatnom razdoblju kada se svi slažu da se nedavni užasi više nikad ne smiju ponoviti", rece on. "No skupno mišljenje obicno je kratkotrajno. Mi smo hirovita, glupa bica s lošim pamcenjem i izvanrednim darom za samouništenje. Ali, tko zna? Možda je došlo vrijeme za to, Katniss.""Za što?" upitam."Za mir, da se održi. Možda svjedocimo evoluciji ljudske vrste. Zamisli to."
Author: Suzanne Collins
47. "Are you preparing for another war, Plutarch?" I ask."Oh, not now. Now we're in a sweet period where everyone agrees that our recent horrors should never be repeated," he says. "But collective thinking is usually short-lived. We're fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self-destruction. Although who knows? Maybe this will be it, Katniss."
Author: Suzanne Collins
48. "One who, though he never digress to read a Lecture, Moral or Political, upon his own Text, nor enter into men's hearts, further than the Actions themselves evidently guide him…filleth his Narrations with that choice of matter, and ordereth them with that Judgement, and with such perspicuity and efficacy expresseth himself that (as Plutarch saith) he maketh his Auditor a Spectator. For he setteth his Reader in the Assemblies of the People, and in their Senates, at their debating; in the Streets, at their Seditions; and in the Field, at their Battels.Quoted by Shelby Foote in his The Civil War: A Narrative – Volume 2: Fredericksburg to Meridian, Bibliographical Note, from Thomas Hobbes' Forward to Hobbes' translation of The Peloponnesian War by Thucydides"
Author: Thomas Hobbes
49. "To be quite candid — and what I am going to say now is something I have never said before, and I hope that it provokes a salutary chill — I know more than I can express in words, and the little I can express would not have been expressed, had I not known more."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "War seems to be one of the most salutary phenomena for the culture of human nature; and it is not without regret that I see it disappearing more and more from the scene."
Author: Wilhelm Von Humboldt

I was aware of doing only a so-so job on the grown-up career front, but I didn't really care, because there were two big exam questions I wanted to be sure I answered fully: the question of art, and the question of love."
