1. "Hatirladigim kadariyla, vaktiyle, hayatim bir sölendi, tüm gönüllerin açildigi, tüm saraplarin aktigi bir sölen. Bir aksam, Güzelligi dizlerimin üstüne oturttum. -Ve onu çok aci buldum.- Ve sövdüm ona. Adalete karsi önlem aldim. Kaçtim uzaklara. Ey büyücüler, ey sefillik, ey kin, hazinem size emanet! Kafamdaki tüm insani umutlari yok etmeyi basardim. Her sevincin üstüne siçradim bir vahsi hayvan gibi bogmaz için. Yanima cellatlar çagirdim, ölürken, tüfeklerinin dipçiklerini isirayim diye. Belalar çagirdim, kumla, kanla beni bogsunlar diye. Mutsuzluk ilahim oldu. Çamura uzandim boylu boyuna. Cinayet havasiyla kurulandim. Ve nice oyunlar oynadim delicesine. Ve ilkbahar getirdi bana budalaligin ürkütücü gülümsemesini."
Author: Arthur Rimbaud
2. "Whistler,' Manet called. 'How's your mother?"
Author: Christopher Moore
3. "Mai intai nu lasati pe nimeni sa va porunceasca si ce sa faceti si ce sa ganditi.Aveti mare grija mai ales ca gandurile sa va ramana neincatusate .Chiar si un om liber poate ,uneori,sa fie legat mai strans decat un sclav.Ascultati-i pe oameni,dar nu va deschideti inima.Aratati-le respect stapanitorilor,dar nu-i urmati orbeste!Ganditi logic si cu bun simt ,dar nu comentati!Nu considerati pe nimeni mai presus de voi , oricare le-ar fi rangul si pozitia.Purtati-va corect cu toti,daca nu, o sa caute sa se razbune pe voi.Ramaneti credinciosi lucrurilor in care credeti si-i ve-ti face astfel pe ceilalti sa va asculte"
Author: Christopher Paolini
4. "He has no talent at all, that boy! You, who are his friend, tell him, please, to give up painting.–--Manet to Monet, on Renoir---"
Author: Edouard Manet
5. "If I walked down by different streets to the Jardin du Luxembourg in the afternoon I could walk through the gardens and then go to the Musée du Luxembourg where the great paintings were that have now mostly been transferred to the Louvre and the Jeu de Paume. I went there nearly every day for the Cézannes and to see the Manets and the Monets and the other Impressionists that I had first come to know about in the Art Institute at Chicago. I was learning something from the painting of Cézanne that made writing simple true sentences far from enough to make the stories have the dimensions that I was trying to put in them. I was learning very much from him but I was not articulate enough to explain it to anyone. Besides it was a secret. But if the light was gone in the Luxembourg I would walk up through the gardens and stop in at the studio apartment where Gertrude Stein lived at 27 rue de Fleurus."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
6. "Just as if Manetho's "Aegyptiaca" or the second book of Aristotle's "Poetics" reappeared, the simple fact that such a significant text as "The Gospel of Judas," believed to be lost forever, comes back to light, constitutes in itself an absolutely exceptional event. But in the present case, the impact of such a discovery takes on particular importance, since, through the rehabilitation of Judas, by presenting him as the closest disciple of Christ and as the one he chose to "betray" him in order to fulfill God's will, this text not only seriously challenges one of the most firmly rooted believes in Christian tradition, but also reduces one of the favorite themes of anti-Semitism to nothing"
Author: François Gaudard
7. "Her nakedness was not absolute, for like Manet's _Olympia__, behind her ear she had a poisonous flower with orange petals, and she also wore a gold bangle on her right wrist and a necklace of tiny pearls. I imagined I would never see anything more exciting for as long as I lived, and today I can confirm that I was right."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
8. "Gideon mi lasciò, si alzò e si avvicinò a Mr Whitman. «Dovrò ammanettarlo» disse con un sospiro. «E poi bisogna fasciare la ferita del dottor White.»«Sì, e poi dobbiamo liberare gli altri dalla stanza del cronografo»aggiunsi. «Ma prima sarà meglio mettersi d'accordo sulla storia da raccontare.»«E prima ancora devo assolutamente baciarti» concluse Gideon abbracciandomi di nuovo."
Author: Kerstin Gier
9. "Nor did these society people add to Elstir's work in their mind's eye that temporal perspective which enabled them to like, or at least to look without discomfort at, Chardin's painting. And yet the older among them might have reminded themselves that in the course of their lives they had gradually seen, as the years bore them away from it, the unbridgeable gulf between what they considered a masterpiece by Ingres and what they had supposed must forever remain a "horror" (Manet's Olympia, for example) shrink until the two canvases seemed like twins. But we never learn, because we lack the wisdom to work backwards from the particular to the general, and imagine ourselves always to be faced with an experience which has no precedents in the past."
Author: Marcel Proust
10. "Die young, stay pretty. Blondie, right? We think of it as a modern phenomenon, the whole youth thing, but really, consider all those great portraits, some of them centuries old. Those goddesses of Botticelli and Rubens, Goya's Maja, Madame X. Consider Manet's Olympia, which shocked at the time, he having painted his mistress with the same voluptuous adulation generally reserved for the aristocratic good girls who posed for depictions of goddesses. Hardly anyone knows anymore, and no one cares, that Olympia was Manet's whore; although there's every reason to imagine that, in life, she was foolish and vulgar and not entirely hygienic (Paris in the 1860s being what it was). She's immortal now, she's a great historic beauty, having been scrubbed clean by the attention of a great artist. And okay, we can't help but notice that Manet did not choose to paint her twenty years later, when time had started doing its work. The world has always worshipped nascence. Goddamn the world."
Author: Michael Cunningham
11. "I looked at her; I saw a slipshod permanet crumpling her hair into a shapeless mass of curls; I saw a brown overcoat, pitifully threadbare and a bit too shot; I saw a face both unobtrusively attractive and attractively unobtrusive; I sensed in this young woman tranquillity, simplicity and modesty, and I felt that these were qualities I needed; moreover, it seemed to me that we were very much akin: all I had to do was to go up and start talking to her and she would smile as if a long-lost brother had suddenly appeared before her."
Author: Milan Kundera
12. "... Üstelik bizim memlekette dikbasli olmak, kendi kendine karar vermek hos bir sey degildir ki! Insan her zaman daa iyi bilen, daha iyi düsünen birine kendini emanet etmeli, birisine baglanmali, bir inanci benimsemeli."
Author: Orhan Pamuk
13. "In sapientis quoque animo, etiam cum uulnus sanatum est, cicatrix manet." : "The wise man's mind will keep its scar long after the wound has healed"
Author: Seneca
14. "It must feel wonderfully strange when, like Manette, one stands there, the only witness to a vanished world."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
