4. "Je laisse Sisyphe au bas de la montagne ! On retrouve toujours son fardeau. Mais Sisyphe enseigne la fidélité supérieure qui nie les dieux et soulève les rochers. Lui aussi juge que tout est bien. Cet univers désormais sans maître ne lui paraît ni stérile ni fertile. Chacun des grains de cette pierre, chaque éclat minéral de cette montagne pleine de nuit, à lui seul, forme un monde. La lutte elle-même vers les sommets suffit à remplir un cœur d'homme. Il faut imaginer Sisyphe heureux."
Author: Albert Camus
5. "But I plucked a new, different, worldly soul for myself -- maybe a soul I found in the spray thrown up by the surge of that distant African river as it plummets onto black rocks and sends up into the sun a permanent arc of a rainbow."
Author: Alexandra Fuller

Author: Anšlavs Eglitis
7. "Aristotle's opinion... that comets were nothing else than sublunary vapors or airy meteors... prevailed so far amongst the Greeks, that this sublimest part of astronomy lay altogether neglected; since none could think it worthwhile to observe, and to give an account of the wandering and uncertain paths of vapours floating in the Ether."
Author: Aristotle
8. "Authors can be divided into meteors, planets and fixed stars. The meteors produce a loud momentary effect; we look up, shout 'see there!' and then they are gone for ever. The planets and comets last for a much longer time....The fixed stars alone are constant and unalterable; their position in the firmament is fixed; they have their own light and are at all times active, because they do not alter their appearance through a change in our standpoint, for they have no parallax. Unlike the others, they do not belong to one system (nation) alone, but to the world. But just because they are situated so high, their light usually requires many years before it becomes visible to the inhabitatns of earth."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
9. "First impressions matter more in basketball than in any other sport, and they can be savored only in person. Players can't hide behind pads or helmets, so we can stare at them, evaluate every move they make: running, jumping, walking, even ogling the cheerleaders. We can see every ripple and tattoo. If they're lazy, we can tell."
Author: Bill Simmons
10. "But when we listened to the radio, it was Bill Haley and the Comets or the Everly Brothers."
Author: Carly Simon
11. "The Mets have shown me more ways to lose than I even knew existed."
Author: Casey Stengel
12. "What caused me to undertake the catalog was the nebula I discovered above the southern horn of Taurus on September 12, 1758, while observing the comet of that year. ... This nebula had such a resemblance to a comet in its form and brightness that I endeavored to find others, so that astronomers would not confuse these same nebulae with comets just beginning to shine. I observed further with suitable refractors for the discovery of comets, and this is the purpose I had in mind in compiling the catalog.After me, the celebrated Herschel published a catalog of 2000 which he has observed. This unveiling the sky, made with instruments of great aperture, does not help in the perusal of the sky for faint comets. Thus my object is different from his, and I need only nebulae visible in a telescope of two feet [focal length]."
Author: Charles Messier
13. "There's an old folk saying that goes: whenever you delete a sentence from your NaNoWriMo novel, a NaNoWriMo angel loses its wings and plummets, screaming, to the ground. Where it will likely require medical attention."
Author: Chris Baty
14. "Run across a field of daisies at warp speed but keep your eyes on the ground. It's ace. Petaled stars and dandelion comets streak the green universe."
Author: David Mitchell
15. "If the wedding was wanted at Melrose—and Buccleuch, as Hereditary Bailie of the Abbey lands, had fewer objections than usual to any idea not his own—then the congregation had to come armed, that was all. The Scotts and their allies, the twenty polite Frenchmen from Edinburgh, the Italian commander with the lame leg, had left their men at arms outside with their horses, the plumed helmets lashed to the saddlebows; and if there were a few vacant seats where a man from Hawick or Bedrule had ducked too late ten days before, no one mentioned it."
Author: Dorothy Dunnett
16. "And when the firemen turned off the hose and were standing in the wet, smoky room, Jim's Aunt, Miss. Prothero, came downstairs and peered in at them. Jim and I waited, very quietly, to hear what she would say to them. She said the right thing, always. She looked at the three tall firemen in their shining helmets, standing among the smoke and cinders and dissolving snowballs, and she said, "Would you like anything to read?"
Author: Dylan Thomas
17. "Dès qu'une image viendra te troubler l'esprit, pense à te dire : « Tu n'es qu'image, et non la réalité dont tu as l'apparence. » Puis, examine-la et soumets-la à l'épreuve des lois qui règlent ta vie : avant tout, vois si cette réalité dépend de nous ou n'en dépend pas ; et si elle ne dépend pas de nous, sois prêt à dire : « Cela ne me regarde pas. »"
Author: Epictetus
18. "Nous sommes les escargots des sommets. (p. 18)"
Author: Erri De Luca
19. "Stop. J'en suis sorti. Des souvenirs. Du passé. Mais tôt ou tard les choses que tu as laissé derrière toi te rattrapent. Et les choses les plus simples, quand tu es amoureux, te semblent les plus belles. Parce que leur simplicité n'a pas d'égal. Et j'ai envie de crier. Dans ce silence qui fait mal. Stop. Laisse tomber. Reprends-toi. Voilà. Fermé. A double tour. Au fond du cœur, bien au fond. Dans ce jardin. Quelques fleurs, un peu d'ombre et puis la douleur. Mets-les là, cache les bien surtout, là où personne ne peut les voir. Là où toi tu ne peux pas les voir."
Author: Federico Moccia

"Don't he like girls?"Arya shrugged. "He's just stupid. He likes to polish helmets and beat on swords with hammers."

Author: John Oliver

Now he's already intimidating to begin with. But he comes over to me and says, 'If you screw this up, they will boo you.' And I said 'Thanks.'"
Author: Julia Stiles

32. "Olipa kerran tyttö,joka tahtoi olla prinsessa.Pää 100% tylliä,kahvipakettikruunuja taukoamaton polotus:kerrokerrokuvastinkerro kuka, arvaa kuka!Herne patjan alla murenee tomuksi,mutta tyttö juoksee yöt metsiä, suuteleesammakoita ja sammakoilla kielivatsanpohjaan saakka.Kokonaisen kesän tyttö roikottoo palmikoita vintin ikkunasta,vaikka kylän pojat kivittävät ruudut rikki.Tulee kuhmu ja tulee haava,mutta prinsessaa ei tule.Salaatytölle kasvaa villieläinsilmät ja säikyt jalat.Silmissä villieläimet vaanivatsyli täynnä marmorikuuliaja jokaisessa kuulassa tyttö, jota ei kohta ole,sillä tyttöjen aika on nopea,tyttöjen aika on villieläimen säikyt jalat."

Author: Kristiina Wallin
34. "Don't we all have a certain number of images that stay around in our head, which we undoubtedly call memories and improperly so, and which we can never get rid of because they return in our sky with the regularity of a comet - torn away also from a world about which we know almost nothing? They return more frequently than comets do, in fact. It would be better, then, to speak of them as loyal satellites, a bit capricious and therefore even troublesome: they appear, disappear, suddenly come back to badger our memory at night when we cannot sleep. But, little as we may care to, as our hearts tell us to, we can also observe them at will, coldly, scrutinize their shadows, colors, and relief. Only, they are dead stars: from them we shall never grasp anything other than the certainty that we have already seen them, examined them, questioned them without really understanding the laws that the line of their mysterious orbits obeyed."
Author: Marc Augé

38. "Heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives! You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."
Author: Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
39. "I have seen everything possible covered in studs and grommets. Also, what I call angry shoes: those platforms with the multiple buckles and studs. I think the polished girl is back."

40. "(..)Sonra Nazli'yi kaybettim. Simdi bazen düsünürüm: Ne olurdu, aramizda her seyi konusmus olsaydik. Nazli bana evden ayrildiktan sonra nasil yasadigini anlatsaydi, neden birdenbire kaybolmak istedigini açiklasaydi. O kadar sevdigim karimin hayatina ait bir kismi, hiç bir zaman bilemedim. Sanki iki yil, Nazli hiç yasamadi bana göre. Biliyorum, denebilir ki, üzücü olaylarla karsilasacakti; insan, belki de hiç istemedigi sözleri duyacakti. Olsun; hiç bilmemekten, bir insan hayatinin o kadar yilini hiçe saymaktan daha iyidir herhalde. Onun iki yilini yok saymakla, onun bu yillarda neler hissettigini bilmek istememekle, çok sevdigim bu insana da bir bakima hürmetsizlik etmis oldum.(..)"
Author: Oğuz Atay

42. "I try to use my telekinesis to pull Nine towards me, but he doesn't budge. Five's telekinetic grip is too powerful.It all happens so fast.Five plummets down with blade extended. Nine, teeth gritted, unable to move, watches the fatal blow descend.Suddenly Eight appears in front of Nine—he's teleported. "NO!" Nine screams.Five's blade drives right into Eight's heart.Five lurches backwards, shocked, as he realizes what he's done. Eight's eyes are wide, a spot of blood forming on his chest. He staggers away from Five, towards me, his hands outstretched. He tries to say something, but no words come out. He collapses.I scream as the fresh scar burns across my ankle."
Author: Pittacus Lore
43. "See, this is my opinion: we all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand."
Author: Robert R. McCammon
44. "I am shocked to find that some people think a 2 star 'I liked it' rating is a bad rating. What? I liked it. I LIKED it! That means I read the whole thing, to the last page, in spite of my life raining comets on me. It's a good book that survives the reading process with me. If a book is so-so, it ends up under the bed somewhere, or maybe under a stinky judo bag in the back of the van. So a 2 star from me means,yes, I liked the book, and I'd loan it to a friend and it went everywhere in my jacket pocket or purse until I finished it. A 3 star means that I've ignored friends to finish it and my sink is full of dirty dishes. A 4 star means I'm probably in trouble with my editor for missing a deadline because I was reading this book. But I want you to know . . . I don't finish books I don't like. There's too many good ones out there waiting to be found. Robin Hobb, author"
Author: Robin Hobb
45. "This was a new recognition that perfection is admirable but a trifle inhuman, and that a stumbling kind of semi-success can be much more warming. Most of all, perhaps, these exultant yells for the Mets were also yells for ourselves, and came from a wry, half-understood recognition that there is more Met than Yankee in every one of us. I knew for whom that foghorn blew; it blew for me."
Author: Roger Angell
46. "This raises the interesting, if seemingly outlandish, question of why car drivers, virtually alone among users of wheeled transport, do not wear helmets. Yes, cars do provide a nice metal cocoon with inflatable cushions. But in Australia, for example, head injuries among car occupants, according to research by the Federal Office of Road Safety, make up half the country's traffic-injury costs. Helmets, cheaper and more reliable than side-impact air bags, would reduce injuries and cut fatalities by some 25 percent.95 A crazy idea, perhaps, but so were air bags once."
Author: Tom Vanderbilt
47. "The moderns, carrying little baggage of the kind that Shelly called "merely cultural," not even living in the traditional air, but breathing into their space helmets a scientific mixture of synthetic gases (and polluted at that) are the true pioneers. Their circuitry seems to include no atavistic domestic sentiment, they have suffered empathectomy, their computers hum no ghostly feedback of Home, Sweet Home. How marvelously free they are! How unutterably deprived!"
Author: Wallace Stegner
48. "Another real problem was over putting our helmets on for re-entry, because we all had severe head colds. They couldn't come up there and make us. Houston, you have a problem!"
Author: Wally Schirra
49. "When beggars die, there are no comets seen; the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes."
Author: William Shakespeare

Author: Winston Churchill
