Author: Adam Clarke
2. "History is a commentary on the various and continuing incapabilities of men. What is history? History is women following behind with the bucket."
Author: Alan Bennett
3. "...once I admitted the arguments of necessity and force majeure put forward by the less eminent, I couldn't reject those of the eminent. To which they retorted that the surest way of playing the game of the red robes was to leave to them the monopoly of the death penalty. My reply to this was that if you gave in once, there was no reason for not continuing to give in. It seems to me that history has borne me out; today there's a sort of competition who will kill the most. They're all mad over murder and they couldn't stop killing men even if they wanted to."
Author: Albert Camus

6. "She watched the tunnels as they flowed past: bare walls of concrete, a net of pipes and wires, a web of rails that went off into black holes where green and red lights hung as distant drops of color. There was nothing else to dilute it, so that one could admire naked purpose and the ingenuity that had achieved it."
Author: Ayn Rand
7. "We have made men proud of most vices, but not of cowardice. Whenever we have almost succeeded in doing so, God permits a war or an earthquake or some other calamity, and at once courage becomes so obviously lovely and important even in human eyes that all our work is undone, and there is still at least one vice of which they feel genuine shame. The danger of inducing cowardice in our patients, therefore, is lest we produce real self-knowledge and self-loathing, with consequent repentance and humility."
Author: C.S. Lewis
8. "Maybe it's the fact the most of the arts here are produced by world-weary and sophisticated older people and then consumed by younger people who not only consume art but study it for clues on how to be cool, hip - and keep in mind that, for kids and younger people, to be hip and cool is the same as to be admired and accepted and included and so Unalone. Forget so-called peer-pressure. It's more like peer-hunger. No? We enter a spiritual puberty where we snap to the fact that the great transcendant horror is loneliness, excluded encagement in the self. Once we've hit this age, we will now give or take anything, wear any mask, to fit, be part-of, not be Alone, we young. The U.S. arts are our guide to inclusion. A how-to. We are shown how to fashion masks of ennui and jaded irony at a young age where the face is fictile enough to assume the shape of whatever it wears. And then it's stuck there, the weary cynicism that saves us from gooey sentiment and unsophisticated naivete."
Author: David Foster Wallace
9. "Failure is authentic, and because it's authentic, it's real and genuine, and because of that, it's a pure state of being."
Author: Douglas Coupland
10. "Os sentimentos mais genuinamente humanos logo se desumanizam na cidade."
Author: Eça De Queirós
11. "A fi plin de tine insuti nu in sens de orgoliu ci de bogatie a fi chinuit de o infinitate interna si de o tensiune extrema inseamna a trai cu atata intensitate incat simti cum mori din cauza vietii."
Author: Emil Cioran
12. "...I also know - and this won't alter the course of history or your personal view of me - that you will die with a clenched fist and a tense jaw, the epitome of hatred and struggle, because you are not a symbol (some inanimate example) but a genuine member of the society to be destroyed; the spirit of the beehive speaks through your mouth and motivates your actions. You are as useful as I am, but you are not aware of how useful your contribution is to the society that sacrifices you."
Author: Ernesto Guevara
13. "Will there never be an end that also has a beginning? Will there never be continuity bridging the awful void between now and some other time, a time in the future, a time in the past?"
Author: Flora Rheta Schreiber
14. "La citeva luni dupa intoarcerea sa, incepuse sa imbatrineasca atit de repede si intr-un chip atit de nelinistitor, incit in curind fu privit ca unul dintre acei strabunici inutili care se foiesc ca niste umbre prin odai, tirindu-si picioarele, amintindu-si cu glas tare de timpurile frumoase din trecut, si de care nimanui nu-i mai pasa si nici nu-si mai aminteste de ei pina in ziua cind ii gaseste morti, in zori, in patul lor."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
15. "Banuiesc ca oamenii au nevoie de muzica pentru ca au nevoie de memoria Paradisului si nu exista un alt mod de a-l reintegra decat prin intermediul muzicii si al iubirii. Daca este adevarat ca am cazut dintr-un absolut, atunci singurul mod in care il putem recupera cu mijloacele noastre fizice, intuitive, este muzica, pentru ca muzica este singura dintre arte care poate realiza acest transport intr-o forma directa si rapida."
Author: Gabriel Liiceanu
16. "They say that Hope is happinessBut genuine Love must prize the past;And Mem'ry wakes the thoughts that bless:They rose first -- they set the last.And all that mem'ry loves the mostWas once our only hope to be:And all that hope adored and lostHath melted into memory.Alas! It is delusion all--The future cheats us from afar:Nor can we be what we recall,Nor dare we think on what we are."
Author: George Gordon Byron
17. "Ci hanno mescolato le anime e ormai abbiamo tutti gli stessi pensieri. Noi aspettiamo ma niente ci aspetta, né un'astronave né un destino.Se adesso cominciasse a piovere ti bagneresti, se questa notte farà freddo la tua gola ne soffrirà, se torni indietro a piedi nel buio dovrai farti coraggio, se continui a vagare sarai sempre più sfatto. Ogni fenomeno è in sé sereno. Chiama le cose perché restino con te fino all'ultimo."
Author: Gianni Celati
18. "The states are not free, under the guise of protecting maternal health or potential life, to intimidate women into continuing pregnancies."
Author: Harry A. Blackmun
19. "I see this as the central issue of our time: how to find a substitute for war in human ingenuity, imagination, courage, sacrifice, patience...War is not inevitable, however persistent it is, however long a history it has in human affairs. It does not come out of some instinctive human need. It is manufactured by political leaders, who then must make a tremendous effort--by enticement, by propaganda, by coercion--to mobilize a normally reluctant population to go to war."
Author: Howard Zinn
20. "If I'm among men who don't agree at all with my nature, I will hardly be able to accommodate myself to them without greatly changing myself. A free man who lives among the ignorant strives as far as he can to avoid their favors. A free manacts honestly, not deceptively. Only free man are genuinely useful to one another and can form true friendships. And it's absolutely permissible, by the highest right of Nature, for everyone to employ clear reason to determine how to live in a way that will allow him to flourish."
Author: Irvin D. Yalom
21. "….I thought we'd be okay apart, but I was sorely mistaken. I don't need much, Haven, but I do need you." "I need you, too, you know," she said. "You make me feel safe."Despite everything, she trusted him. She believed in him. She loved him.And he loved her . . . more than anything in the world. She had given herself to him again, every barrier between them broken down. All of those unanswered questions, all of the worry, every single bit of it had been resolved the moment they came back together. "Haven," he said. "If I could have anything, I know what I'd ask for now." She pulled back from their hug to look at him with genuine curiosity. "What?" Carmine took a step back, reaching around his neck to pull off the gold chain. He unfastened it, removing the small ring, and eyed it in his palm momentarily before dropping to his knee. "If I could have anything in the world, it would be for you to marry me."
Author: J.M. Darhower
22. "Still less, despite appearances, will it have been a collection of three "essays" whose itinerary it would be time, after the fact, to recognize; whose continuity and underlying laws could now be pointed out; indeed, whose overall concept or meaning could at last, with all the insistence required on such occasions, be squarely set forth. I will not feign, according to the code, either premeditation or improvisation. These texts are assembled otherwise; it is not my intention here to present them."
Author: Jacques Derrida

"The Kammerlicht: Explanations of the Impressions Left Upon Various and Sundry Natures by Dreams as Interpreted According to Tribe, and of the Numbers to be Staked in Lotteries in Conformity with the Meanings of Said Dreams .. says … there are eight ‘tribes' of dreams and of the eight only the fifth is genuine. Tribe 8 are dreams emanating directly from evil spirits. Tribe 7 are dreams granted to the virtuous as direct revelations. Tribe 6 are dreams from roots planted in disease (fever and such). Tribe 5 are dreams that come to those who have taken no food before retiring and are of a healthy & tranquil disposition."
Author: Jan Neruda
24. "That Lady Russell of steady age and character, and extrememly well provided for,should have no thought of a second marriage needs no apology to the public, which is rather apt to be unreasonalbly discontented when a woman 'does' marry again,than when she does not, but Sir William's continuing in singleness requires explanation."
Author: Jane Austen
25. "I could pour my love in a coffee cup and the shivering and skeptical would beg me to drink it on a cold winter morning. And could they drink from my coffee cup? No, because it's not like there is coffee in there, or even hot chocolate. My love is the only thing filling that cup, and everyone knows (well, everyone but Agatha knows) that you can't drink my love, you can only eat it. That's because my love is frozen like 32 degrees spun around 180 degrees, translated to Inuit, shipped to Siberia, tutored in a gulag, and sent back to the US in the form of a Martini on the rocks by a bartender named Martin Rock."
Author: Jarod Kintz
26. "At 17, the smallest crises took on tremendous proportions; someone else's thoughts could take root in the loam of your own mind; having someone accept you was as vital as oxygen. Adults, light years away from this, rolled their eyes and smirked and said, 'This too shall pass' - as if adolescence was a disease like chicken pox, something everyone recalled as a milk nuisance, completely forgetting how painful it had been at the time."
Author: Jodi Picoult
27. "Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of? inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.

Author: John Maynard Keynes

Author: Jus Accardo
30. "Chaque hiver abrite en son coeur un printemps qui frissonne et derrière le voile de chaque nuit se profile une aube souriante"
Author: Kahlil Gibran
31. "Like faith, marriage is a mystery. The person you're committed to spending your life with is known and yet unknown, at the same time remarkably intimate and necessarily other. The classic seven-year itch may not be a case of familiarity breeding ennui and contempt, but the shock of having someone you thought you knew all too well suddenly seem a stranger. When that happens, you are compelled to either recommit to the relationship or get the hell out. There are many such times in a marriage."
Author: Kathleen Norris
32. "Of the best things that happened to me at that time, believe it or not, was joining the Boy Scouts. Its leader, Baden-Powell, a genuinely nice man who was well tuned in to what small boys liked doing, did believe that without the scouts the empire would collapse. This"
Author: Keith Richards
33. "People in the countryside carry a sense of dignity. They wear it, don't they? Like a badge? I'm being genuine."

34. "Isi cauta teama de moarte pe care o simtise inainte si n-o mai gasi. Unde e? Care moarte? Nu mai exista nicio teama, pentru ca nu mai exista moartea. In locul mortii era lumina. "Va sa zica, asta e!" exclama deodata cu glas tare, "Ce bucurie!". Toate acestea se petrecura pentru el intr-o clipa, si intelesul clipei ramase acelasi pana la sfarsit. Pentru cei din jurul lui insa, agonia mai dura doua ore. In piept ii clocotea ceva: trupul slabit tresarea. Pe urma, clocotul si horcaitul devenira tot mai tare. "S-a sfarsit", spuse cineva la capataiul lui. Auzi cuvintele si le repeta in gand. "S-a sfarsit cu moartea, isi spuse. Nu mai exista."Trase aer in piept, se opri la jumatatea unui suspin, trupul i se destinse si muri."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
35. "Chalk one up to ingenuity."
Author: Lia Habel
36. "Io son figlio del Caos; e non allegoricamente, ma in giusta realtà, perché son nato in una nostra campagna, che trovasi presso ad un intricato bosco denominato, in forma dialettale, Càvusu dagli abitanti di Girgenti, corruzione dialettale del genuino e antico vocabolo greco "Kaos"."
Author: Luigi Pirandello
37. "Cerul era larg si lumea fara margini, dar viata omului se învârtea înauntrul unei curti ca într-o închisoare. Adânc si luminos era cerul, dar aici jos era o casa împrejmuita cu gard si sufletul omului se chinuia aici, întunecat si orb."
Author: Marin Preda

Author: Oscar Wilde
40. "The obvious is the hardest thing of all to point out to anyone who has genuinely lost sight of it."
Author: Owen Barfield
41. "En el momento del flechazo brotan dos tendencias contradictorias pero ineludibles: una es la genuina aparición de la atracción y el afecto, y la otra es la aparición de una fantasía que quiere anestesiar todos los defectos del otro. Ambos factores crecen al unísono. Hasta que el segundo, la fantasía de creer que el otro es perfecto, no da más y cae. Esto es de esperarse, porque nadie se enamora de un dios. Uno se enamora de un ser humano. Esto afecta la atracción y el afecto. Por eso nunca caen mal las palabras típicas de los abuelos cuando dicen: «Piensa bien antes de estar con alguien». Lamentablemente, tardamos un mínimo de treinta años en darles la razón."
Author: Pedro Suárez Vértiz
42. "It isn't until you begin to fight in your own cause that you become really committed to winning and become a genuine ally of other people struggling for their freedom."
Author: Robin Morgan
43. "..."stupidity: a process, not a state. A human being takes in far more information that he or she can put out. 'Stupidity' is a process or strategy by which a human, in response to social denigration of the information [they] put[] out, commits [themself] to taking in no more information than [they] can put out. (Not to be confused with ignorance, or lack of data.) Since such a situation is impossible to achieve because of the nature of mind.perception itself in its relation to the functioning body, a continuing downward spiral of functionality and/or informative dissemination results." and he understood why! "The process, however, can be reversed," the voice continued," at any time..."
Author: Samuel R. Delany
44. "Miri took genuine comfort in studying Mathematics that day. She could sort numbers into two simple ideas: true and not true. Unlike numbers, words were rarely just one thing. They moved and changed, camouflaging and leaping out unexpectedly. Words were slippery and alive; words wrestled out of her grip and became something new. Words were dangerous."
Author: Shannon Hale
45. "Out of love for mankind, and out of despair at my embarrassing situation, seeing that I had accomplished nothing and was unable to make anything easier than it had already been made, and moved by a genuine interest in those who make everything easy, I conceived it as my task to create difficulties everywhere."
Author: Søren Kierkegaard
46. "Oskar showed that virtue emerged where it would, and the sort of churchy observance bishops called for was not a guarantee of genuine humanity in a person."
Author: Thomas Keneally
47. "For optimists, human life never needs justification, no matter how much hurt piles up, because they can always tell themselves that things will get better. For pessimists, there is no amount of happiness—should such a thing as happiness even obtain for human beings except as a misconception—that can compensate us for life's hurt. As a worst-case example, a pessimist might refer to the hurt caused by some natural or human-made cataclysm. To adduce a hedonic counterpart to the horrors that attach to such cataclysms would require a degree of ingenuity from an optimist, but it could be done. And the reason it could be done, the reason for the eternal stalemate between optimists and pessimists, is that no possible formula can be established to measure proportions and types of hurt and happiness in the world. If such a formula could be established, then either pessimists or optimists would have to give in to their adversaries."
Author: Thomas Ligotti
48. "Time of course has showed the question up in all its young illogic. We can justify any apologia simply by calling life a successive rejection of personalities. No apologia I s any more than a romance—half a fiction—in which all the successive identities are taken on and rejected by the writer as a function of linear time are treated as separate characters. The writing itself even constitutes another rejection, another "character" added to the past. So we do sell our souls: paying them away to history in little installments. It isn't so much to pay for eyes clear enough to see past the fiction of continuity, the fiction of cause and effect, the fiction of a humanized history endowed with "reason."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
49. "I genuinely find the most meaningful thing I do is to make music, but also to absorb some sort of creativity."
Author: Tom Odell
50. "Everything science has taught me strengthens my belief in the continuity of our spiritual existence after death. I believe in an immortal soul. Science has proved that nothing disintegrates into nothingness. Life and soul, therefore, cannot disintegrate into nothingness, and so are immortal."
Author: Werner Von Braun
