5. "Simon decidió salvar la situación.-James, hoy vamos a repasar cada momento de la noche en la que te capturaron.Al parecer, el desayuno dejó de interesarle a su amigo, porque James colocó su tenedor lentamente dobre la mesa.-Tenía la impresión de que ya lo habíamos hecho.-No como vamos a hacerlo hoy.Agatha asintió.-Muy bien. Yo también quiero oírlo.James se ruborizó de la manera más sorprendente.-¡Aggie! Hubo algunos detalles muy importantes ese día. Cosas que tú no deberías oír.-Oh, ¿Te refieres al hecho de que pasaste seis horas con tu amante esa noche? Por Dios, James, ¿Qué demonios hiciste durante seis horas enteras? A mí me consta que para eso se tarda muchísimo menos. ¿No es cierto, Simon?Simon se atragantó con el último bocado que se había llevado a la boca. Esta vez le tocaba a él ruborizarse y evitar la mirada atónita de James."
Author: Celeste Bradley
6. "It's just amazing to do something that's part of a pop culture phenomenon."
Author: Chaske Spencer
7. "Što se više udaljavamo i raskidamo veze sa svijetom pismenosti, svijetom napisane rijeci, svijetom složenosti i nijanse, svijetom ideja i pojmova i zamjenjujemo ga oku ugodnim, umirujuciim slikama, fantazijama, sloganima, celebrityjima, pohlepom za nasiljem, to smo sve bliži urušavanju i imploziji. Kako nastavljamo propadati, a patnje nam narastaju, poput ljubitelja hrvackih spektakla što se organiziraju u sklopu World Wresting Entertainmenta, ili ljudi što brkaju pornografiju s ljubavlju, pocinjemo žudjeti za ugodom, umirenjem i ljepotom opsjene. Opsjene u nama bude osjecaj ugode. To postaje naša stvarnost."
Author: Chris Hedges
8. "Los compañeros perfectos no tienen menos de cuatro patas."
Author: Colette
9. "Tú no eres una persona cualquiera. Si hay una persona que no es cualquiera, ése eres tú. Y menos para mí. Eres como una segunda voz dentro de mí, que me acompaña día a día. Has convertido mi monólogo interior en un diálogo. Enriqueces mi vida interior. Indagas, insistes, parodias, entras en conflicto conmigo. Cuando te veo, de inmediato siento el imperioso deseo de dejar que te acerques aún más, de tenerte muy cerca."
Author: Daniel Glattauer
10. "Vuoi che ti dica una cosa? Più lo si analizza, corpo moderno, più lo si esibisce, meno esso esiste. Annullato, in misura inversamente proporzionale alla sua esposizione."
Author: Daniel Pennac
11. "As much as they deny it, I think people want to be scared. It's a phenomenon, why people want to be scared when there is so much violence and craziness in the world. People still really enjoy being scared. It's a conundrum to me. It's hard to explain. It's an unconscious thing, really, why people like that so much."
Author: Dylan McDermott
12. "Many historians have noted an interesting phenomenon in American life in the years immediately after a war. In the councils of government fierce partisanship replaces the necessary political coalitions of wartime. IN the great arena of social relations -- business, labour, the community -- violence rises, fear and recrimination dominate public discussion, passion prevails over reason. Many historians have noted this phenomenon. It is attributed to the continuance beyond the end of the war of the war hysteria. Unfortunately, the necessary emotional fever for fighting a war cannot be turned off like a water tap. Enemies must continue to be found. The mind and heart cannot be demobilised as quickly as the platoon. On the contrary, like a fiery furnace at white heat, it takes a considerable time to cool."
Author: E.L. Doctorow
13. "Então Palma aconselhou um grande passo.- Vá você lá dentro, Silveira, entre pelo quarto, e assim sem mais nem menos, chegue-se ao pé dela...- E tapona? - perguntou Cruges, muito seriamente..."
Author: Eça De Queirós
14. "The Orient and Islam have a kind of extrareal, phenomenologically reduced status that puts them out of reach of everyone except the Western expert. From the beginning of Western speculation about the Orient, the one thing th orient could not do was to represent itself. Evidence of the Orient was credible only after it had passed through and been made firm by the refining fire of the Orientalist's work."
Author: Edward W. Said
15. "Villanelle for my valentineOld love, I thought I'd never see the timebecause of all we've done and often saidwhen I'd be yours, my dear, and you'd be mine.And what relief to soften, and resignthe battle of the heart over the head.old love, I thought I'd never see the timewhen qualms and cold feet that could undermineall we've held out for, dissipate insteadnow that I'm yours, my dear and you are mine.I'm still amazed how our two lives alignthe two of us! A pair! Take it as read,old love, I thought I'd never see the timeThe tangle of our jumpers in the line,the battle for the blankets in our bedconfirm that I am yours, and you are mine.So then, this is my pledge, my valentine:my hand's in yours for all that lies ahead.Oh love, there's never been a better timenow that I'm yours, and finally, you're mine."
Author: Elise Valmorbida
16. "Un'amicizia incapace di aiutare potrebbe benissimo fare a meno di esistere."
Author: Elizabeth Von Arnim
17. "Every healthy man in the world wakes up with a stiffy. A fatty. Morning wood. I'm sure there's some medical explanation for the phenomenon, but I just like to think of it as a little present from God.A chance to begin the day with your best dick forward."
Author: Emma Chase
18. "Mereka yang pernah menolong orang-orang yang kesusahan, menginsafi bahwa memberi lebih baik daripada menerima."
Author: Epicurus
19. "En realidad, siempre he pensado que no hay memoria colectiva, lo que quizá sea una forma de defensa de la especie humana. La frase "todo tiempo pasado fue mejor" no indica que antes sucedieran menos cosas malas, sino que —felizmente— la gente las echa en el olvido. Desde luego, semejante frase no tiene validez universal; yo, por ejemplo, me caracterizo por recordar preferentemente los hechos malos y, así, casi podría decir que "todo tiempo pasado fue peor"
Author: Ernesto Sabato
20. "My HeartI'm not going to cry all the timenor shall I laugh all the time,I don't prefer one "strain" to another.I'd have the immediacy of a bad movie,not just a sleeper, but also the big,overproduced first-run kind. I want to be at least as alive as the vulgar. And if some aficionado of my mess says "That's not like Frank!," all to the good! I don't wear brown and grey suits all the time, do I? No. I wear workshirts to the opera,often. I want my feet to be bare,I want my face to be shaven, and my heart--you can't plan on the heart, butthe better part of it, my poetry, is open."
Author: Frank O'Hara
21. "Porque la palabra incondicional quiere decir, ni más ni menos que "sin condiciones". Entonces, amar a alguien incondicionalmente implica amarlo sin ponerle ninguna condición. Es decir: amarlo aunque nos pegue, aunque nos engañe, aunque por estar con esa persona no podamos ver a nuestros hijos. Y yo me pregunto a qué persona medianamente sana esto le parece algo maravilloso."
Author: Gabriel Rolón
22. "What if all those strange and unexplainable bends in history were the result of supernatural interference? At which point I asked myself, what's the weirdest most eccentric historical phenomenon of them all? Answer:the Great British Empire. Clearly, one tiny little island could only conquer half the known world with supernatural aid. Those absurd Victorian manners and ridiculous fashions were obviously dictated by vampires. And, without a doubt, the British army regimental system functions on werewolf pack dynamics."
Author: Gail Carriger
23. "Ko z ljubeznijo razmišljate o nekom, ki vam je custveno blizu, premaknete kakovost zavesti in to prispeva k njegovemu energetskemu sistemu... V tej obliki izmenjave podatkov torej sodelujete z vsemi dušami, s katerimi ste si blizu, in do neke mere z vsemi dušami, ki se dotikajo vašega življenja. Ko premaknete svojo vsebino podatkov in podatke, ki jih pošiljate duši, jih duša obdela po lastnem sistemu. Na tej ravni vzrok in posledica vaših namenov ter nacin, ki si ga izberete za oblikovanje svoje energije, vplivajo na druge."
Author: Gary Zukav
24. "Nunca nos acostumbramos a ser menos importantes para los demás de lo que ellos lo son para nosotros."
Author: Graham Greene
25. "Free trade economists have argued that the mere co-existence of protectionism and economic development does not prove that the former caused the latter. This is true. But i am at least trying to explain one phenomenon - economic development-with another that co-existed with it - protectionism. Free trade economists have to explain how free trade can be an explanation for the economic success of today's rich countries, when it simply had not been practised very much before they became rich."
Author: Ha Joon Chang
26. "Lo que quiero decir es que el dolor se vuelve crónico. Engullido por la vida diaria, uno deja de saber cuáles son las heridas. Pero están ahí. Así son las heridas: no se pueden coger y mostrar; las únicas que se pueden mostrar son las heridas menores."
Author: Haruki Murakami
27. "(...) decidí dejarme llevar por la corriente, no oponer la menor resistencia al destino, como quiera que se presentase. Nada de lo que me había ocurrido hasta entonces había bastado para destruirme, nada había quedado destruido, salvo mis falsas ilusiones (...)"
Author: Henry Miller
28. "-Me has dicho que no dura, que desear ser feliz nunca dura. Así que lo que me haría sentir completa es formar parte de algo en vez de ser invisible, pero no quiero desear eso. No puede que sea tan patética para desear algo así –su voz se apaga. –No sé qué hacer.Me río. No quiero, pero no puedo evitarlo. No me extraña que no pueda saber lo que quiere, puesto que no es un auténtico deseo. Los ojos de Viola brillan de ira.-Me alegro de que te haga gracia.Suelto otra carcajada.-Bueno, es que es imposible ser una persona rota por completo. No eres más que una persona. Solo puedes existir. Solo formas parte de ti misma, tú eres la única responsable de tu felicidad o de lo que sea. Ese sentimiento de estar rota o completa no es más que un truco de la mente mortal. Los tres deseos no te harán sentir más completa de lo que eres ahora. Al menos no por mucho tiempo."
Author: Jackson Pearce
29. "«Un buen libro, Marcus, no se mide sólo por sus últimas palabras, sino por el efecto colectivo de todas las palabras precedentes. Apenas medio segundo después de haber terminado el libro, tras haber leído la última palabra, el lector debe sentirse invadido por un fuerte sentimiento; durante un instante, sólo debe pensar en todo lo que acaba de leer, mirar la portada y sonreír con un gramo de tristeza porque va a echar de menos a todos los personajes. Un buen libro, Marcus, es un libro que uno se arrepiente de terminar.»"
Author: Joël Dicker
30. "Beauty is a primeval phenomenon. It never makes an appearance itself, but is a visible reflection in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind. It is as various as nature herself."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
31. "In via Belgrano presi un tassì; insonne, invasato, quasi felice, pensai che nulla è meno materiale del denaro, giacché qualsiasi momenta (una moneta da venti centesimi, ad esempio) è, a rigore, un repertorio di futuri possibili. Il denaro è un ente astratto, ripetei, è tempo futuro. Può essere un pomeriggio in campagna, può essere musica di Brahms, può essere carte geografiche, può essere giuoco di scacchi, può essere caffé, può essere le parole di Epitteto, che insegnano il disprezzo dell'oro; è un Proteo più versatile di quello dell'isola Pharos."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
32. "Like they say: los que menos corren, vuelan."
Author: Junot Díaz
33. "Anna está descendiendo sobre mí, bajando las escaleras sin tomar pasos. Arrastra horriblemente los pies como si no pudiera utilizarlos en absoluto. Venas oscuras y de color púrpura cortan a través de su pálida piel blanca. Su pelo es un tono menos negro, y se mueve a través del aire como si estuviera suspendida en el agua, serpenteando detrás y a la deriva como juncos. Es la única cosa sobre ella que parece viva."
Author: Kendare Blake
34. "I call the Change of Life "Orchids" because menopause is such an ugly word. It's got men in it for goddsakes."
Author: Lisa Jey Davis
35. "Al menos historia era fácil, bueno solo si tu fuiste la causante de la primera y segunda guerra mundial."
Author: Lolo Mayaya
36. "The way we speak and think of the Puritans seems to me a serviceable model for important aspects of the phenomenon we call Puritanism. Very simply, it is a great example of our collective eagerness to disparage without knowledge or information about the thing disparaged, when the reward is the pleasure of sharing an attitude one knows is socially approved. And it demonstrates how effectively such consensus can close off a subject from inquiry.... Unauthorized views are in effect punished by incomprehension, not intentionally and not to anyone's benefit, but simply as a consequence of a hypertrophic instinct for consensus."
Author: Marilynne Robinson
37. "In the late '70s I was asked to sing for the first time in Germany. I'll never forget it. It was at a festival in Bremen. The German audience went berserk and the reviews were a phenomenon. For some reason the German audience understood how technically challenging this music was; it wasn't just someone yelling their head off."
Author: Meredith Monk
38. "Believing the phenomenon of karma is placing your destiny in the hands of the devil."
Author: Michael Bassey Johnson
39. "No le gustaban los libros en que, con malhumor y de forma avinagrada, se contaban acontecimientos totalmente corrientes de la vida totalmente corriente de personas totalmente corrientes. De eso había ya bastante en la realidad y, ¿por qué habría de leer además sobre ello? Por otra parte, le daba cien patadas cuando se daba cuenta de que lo querían convencer de algo. Y esa clase de libros, más o menos claramente, siempre lo querían convencer a uno de algo.Bastián prefería los libros apasionantes, o divertidos o que hacían soñar; libros en los que los personajes inventados vivían aventuras fabulosas y en los que uno podía imaginarse todo."
Author: Michael Ende
40. "Razas víctimas de un poder extraño cualquiera (los negros norteamericanos por ejemplo), entablan un combate con una realidad concreta. Nosotros en cambio, luchamos con entidades imaginarias, vestigios del pasado y fantasmas engendrados por nosotros mismos. Esos fantasmas y vestigios son reales, el menos para nosotros. […] son intocables e invencibles, ya que no están fuera de nosotros, sino en nosotros mismos. […] el mexicano actual, como se ha visto, puede reducirse a esto: el mexicano no quiere o no se atreve a ser él mismo."
Author: Octavio Paz
41. "There is one way to understand another culture. Living it. Move into it, ask to be tolerated as a guest, learn the language. At some point understanding may come. It will always be wordless. The moment you grasp what is foreign, you will lose the urge to explain it. To explain a phenomenon is to distance yourself from it."
Author: Peter Høeg
42. "When people of similar frequencies come together, output is not a simple sum of individual work, but exponential. In science we term this phenomenon as resonance. Output at this stage is beyond any logical limit."
Author: Ravindra Shukla
43. "E o que significa a palavra qualidade? Para mim significa textura. Este livro tem poros. Tem feições. Este livro poderia passar pelo microscópio. Você encontraria vida sob a lâmina, emanando em profusão infinita. Quanto mais poros, quanto mais detalhes de vida fielmente gravados por centímetro quadrado você conseguir captar numa folha de papel, mais "literário" você será. Pelo menos essa é minha definição. Detalhes reveladores. Detalhes frescos. Os bons escritores quase sempre tocam a vida. Os medíocres apenas passam rapidamente a mão sobre ela. Os ruins a estupram e a deixam para as moscas. Entende agora por que os livros são odiados e temidos? Eles mostram os poros no rosto da vida. Os que vivem no conforto querem apenas rostos com cara de lua de cera, sem poros nem pêlos, inexpressivos."
Author: Ray Bradbury
44. "Not that I have any interest in saying goodbye to Rocky. I absolutely adore being involved and a part of something that is really a phenomenon."
Author: Richard O'Brien
45. "Menoeceus is a great name. (Astrid)For an old man or a feminine hygiene product. Not for my son. And next time I get to name the kid and it won't be something that sounds like meningitis. (Zarek)You keep that up and next time you'll be the one birthing it, and don't mess with me, bucko, I have connections in that department. A pregnant man is not an impossibility in my neighborhood. (Astrid)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
46. "Cada vez es menos factible reflexionar sobre nuestra experiencia siguiendo la distinción entre imágenes y cosas, entre copias y originales"
Author: Susan Sontag
47. "Islam menolak secara total penerapan apapun dari konsep-konsep sekular, sekularisasi atau sekularisme atas dirinya, kerana semuanya itu bukanlah milik Islam dan asing baginya dalam segala segi. Konsep-konsep tersebut merupakan milik dan hanya wajar dalam konteks sejarah intelektual Kristen-Barat, baik pengalaman maupun kesedaran keagamaannya."
Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib Al Attas
48. "At times her whimsical fancy would intensify natural processes around her till they seemed a part of her own story. Rather they became a part of it; for the world is only a psychological phenomenon, and what they seemed they were."
Author: Thomas Hardy
49. "It went on for a month. Those who had taken it for a cosmic sign cringed beneath the sky each nightfall, imagining ever more extravagant disasters. Others, for whom orange did not seem an appropriately apocalyptic shade, sat outdoors on public benches, reading calmly, growing used to the curious pallor. As nights went on and nothing happened and the phenomenon slowly faded to the accustomed deeper violets again, most had difficulty remembering the earlier rise of heart, the sense of overture and possibility, and went back once again to seeking only orgasm, hallucination, stupor, sleep, to fetch them through the night and prepare them against the day."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
50. "The earth-self observing the Cosmos and trying to understand the Cosmos by scientific principles from which its self is excluded is, beyond doubt, the strangest phenomenon in all of the Cosmos, far stranger than the Ring Nebula in Lyra.It, the self, is in fact the only alien in the entire Cosmos."
Author: Walker Percy
