2. "Ah ! cher ami, que les hommes sont pauvres en invention. Ils croient toujours qu'on se suicide pour une raison. Mais on peut très bien se suicider pour deux raisons. Non, ça ne leur entre pas dans la tête. Alors, à quoi bon mourir volontairement, se sacrifier à l'idée qu'on veut donner de soi ? Vous mort, ils en profiteront pour donner à votre geste des motifs idiots, ou vulgaires. Les martyrs, cher ami, doivent choisir d'être oubliés, raillés ou utilisés. Quant à être compris, jamais."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "While we maintain the unity of the human species, we at the same time repel the depressing assumption of superior and inferior races of men.

Author: Alexander Von Humboldt
4. "L'opposto della depressione non è la felicità, ma la vitalità, e la mia vita, mentre scrivo, è pregna di vitalità anche quando è triste. Un giorno o l'altro, il prossimo anno, mi capiterà di svegliarmi nuovamente privo di senno: è improbabile che mi mantenga stabile per sempre. Nel frattempo, però, ho scoperto quella che si chiama anima, una parte di me che non avrei mai immaginato esistesse prima che, un giorno di sette anni fa, l'inferno mi facesse una visita inaspettata. È una scoperta preziosa."
Author: Andrew Solomon

Author: Barbara Amiel

Si imprudents que nous errons dans les temps qui ne sont pas nôtres et ne pensons point au seul qui nous appartient !"
Author: Blaise Pascal
9. "Maths is fundamentally a different process in education than it is in the real world. There is an insistence that we do maths by hand when most of it is done by computers. The idea that you have to do everything by hand before you can operate a computer is nonsense."
Author: Conrad Wolfram

11. "Massignon a combattu infatigablement en faveur de la civilisation musulmane et, comme en témoignent de nombreux essais et lettres écrits après 1948, pour soutenir les réfugiés palestiniens, pour défendre les droits des Arabes musulmans et chrétiens de Palestine contre le sionisme, contre ce qu'il appelé, de manière caustique, "le colonialisme bourgeois" des Israéliens" (...) Pourtant, Massignon place implicitement l'Orient islamique dans une période ancienne pour l'essentiel, et l'Occident dans la modernité. Comme Robertson Smith, il considère que l'Oriental n'est pas un homme moderne, mais un Sémite (...)"
Author: Edward W. Said
12. "Sentite questo: Trasmettere un pensiero non significa condividerlo. Perchè un pensiero colleghi due o più soggetti dev'essere decifrato da tutti e questo non è frequente. Collegare è diverso da accettare, la gran parte di ciò che chiamiamo comunicare non è altro che ripetizione e obbedienza. Viviamo di patti referenziali, di pura e semplice meccanica. ADDESTRAMENTO è il nome del gioco sublime che alcuni chiamano ancora VITA. Tutti parlano con proprietà dell'amore. della libertà, dei sogni ecc.Pochi sono in grado di comprendere semplici equazioni. Essendo la parola un elemento quotidiano ci appare accessibile. E questo è un errore, la parola è più ermetica della fisica moderna, la parola è una trappola mortale. Che ve ne pare?"
Author: Efraim Medina Reyes
13. "Wasn't I proud of all we accomplished–the prestigious home in the Hudson Valley, the apartment in Manhattan, the eight phone lines, the friends and the picnics and the parties, the weekends spent roaming the aisles of some box-shaped superstore of our choice, buying ever more appliances on credit? I had actively participated in every moment of the creation of this life–so why did I feel like none of it resembled me? Why did I feel so overwhelmed with duty, tired of being the primary breadwinner and the housekeeper, and the social coordinator and the dog walker and the wife and the soon-to-be mother, and — somewhere in my stolen moments–a writer…?"
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
14. "Perfino in quel pomeriggio dovevano esserci stati momenti in cui Daisy non era riuscita a stare all'altezza del sogno, non per sua colpa, ma a causa della vitalità colossale dell'illusione di lui che andava al di là di Daisy, di qualunque cosa. Gatsby vi si era gettato con passione creatrice, continuando ad accrescerla, ornandola di ogni piuma vivace che il vento gli sospingesse a portata di mano. Non c'è fuoco né gelo tale da sfidare ciò che un uomo può accumulare nel proprio cuore."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
15. "None of the modern machines, none of the modern paraphernalia. . . have any power except over the people who choose to use them."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
16. "To say that a being who is sentient has no interest in continuing to live is like saying that a being with eyes has no interest in continuing to see. Death—however "humane"—is a harm for humans and nonhumans alike."
Author: Gary L. Francione
17. "The U.S. has a so-called health care system that has nothing to do with the promotion of health. Those who run this system do not care about your health, and it's far from being a system. It's a fragmented patchwork of procedure-oriented services that are meshed in a voluminous trail of paper payments, with little relevance to community-based needs. This misdirected, disease-managed non-care system of symptom suppression demands more and more treatment at higher and higher costs. If they cared at all, you'd be treated like a human, not like a number resembling, quite frankly, the ear tags on a cattle herd."
Author: Gary Tunsky
18. "None knows the weight of another's burden."
Author: George Herbert

Author: Hugh Dancy
22. "- Non la rivedrò mai più - disse come per rispondere ad un rimprovero. - Mai! Mai! - E quando poté camminare, questa parola gli risuonò nel rumore dei propri passi e nel sibilo del vento sul paesaggio sconsolato. Sorrise da solo ripassando per i luoghi per cui era venuto e ricordando le idee che lo avevano accompagnato a quell'appuntamento. Come rimaneva sorprendente la realtà!"
Author: Italo Svevo

35. "Da quando la nave era stata catturata dall'orbita terrestre, la vista del pianeta era divenuta per lei così irresistibile che difficilmente riusciva a privarsene. La Terra. Era la sua casa e non lo era. La conosceva bene e non la conosceva affatto. Vi era nata e cresciuta e allo stesso tempo non vi aveva mai messo piede prima. Le contraddizioni dovute a quella sua dualità avevano, però, l'inatteso effetto di farle godere soltanto del lato positivo di entrambe le condizioni."
Author: Rita Carla Francesca Monticelli

41. "Atau, apakah didunia ini sebetulnya seperti didalam amplop ya Sukab, dimana kita tidak tahu apa yang berada di luar diri kita, dimana kita merasa hidup penuh dengan makna padahal yang menonton kita tertawa-tawa sambil berkata, "Ah, kasihan betul manusia." Apakah begitu Sukab, kamu yang suka berkhayal barangkali tahu."

44. "I Am VerticalBut I would rather be horizontal.I am not a tree with my root in the soilSucking up minerals and motherly loveSo that each March I may gleam into leaf,Nor am I the beauty of a garden bedAttracting my share of Ahs and spectacularly painted,Unknowing I must soon unpetal.Compared with me, a tree is immortalAnd a flower-head not tall, but more startling,And I want the one's longevity and the other's daring.Tonight, in the infinitesimal light of the stars,The trees and flowers have been strewing their cool odors.I walk among them, but none of them are noticing.Sometimes I think that when I am sleepingI must most perfectly resemble them--Thoughts gone dim.It is more natural to me, lying down.Then the sky and I are in open conversation,And I shall be useful when I lie down finally:The the trees may touch me for once, and the flowers have time for me."I Am Vertical", 28 March 1961"
Author: Sylvia Plath

Author: Terry Pratchett
46. "It is not too fantastic to say that he desired them with some of the absolute passion that characterised the exposed and flaming heart of Jesus which hung on Emilie's wall. Since this narrative has tried to avoid the canonisation of the Herr Direktor, the idea of the sensual Oskar as the desirer of souls has to be proved."
Author: Thomas Keneally
47. "All forms of love are necessary, and none are to be ignored, but all of us find some forms of love to be more emotionally valuable to us. They are a currency that we find particularly precious, a language that delivers the message of love to our hearts with the most power. Some types of love are more thrilling and fulfilling to us when we receive them.."
Author: Timothy Keller
48. "Miss Langman was often, in interviews, described as a witty conversationalist; how can a woman be witty when she hasn't a sense of humor? - and she has none, which was her central flaw as a person and as an artist."
Author: Truman Capote
49. "Nessuna passione cova più forte in petto all'uomo, del desiderio di far pensare gli altri a modo proprio. Nulla offusca tanto il cielo della sua felicità, nulla lo riempie tanto di furore, quanto il sapere che un altro tiene a vili cose di cui egli fa gran conto. Whigs e Tories, liberali e laburisti, per che cosa lottano - se non per il loro prestigio? Non l'amore della verità, ma la sete di dominio scaglia fazione contro fazione, e fa desiderare a una parrocchia la rovina di un'altra parrocchia. Ognuno pensa a serbare la pancia per i fichi e ad asservirsi l'avversario, piuttosto che al trionfo della verità e all'esaltazione della virtù."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "The truth is, I often like women. I like their unconventionality. I like their completeness. I like their anonymity."
Author: Virginia Woolf

Humor is the only test of gravity, and gravity of humor; for a subject which will not bear raillery is suspicious, and a jest which will not bear serious examination is false wit."
