Author: A. Bartlett Giamatti
2. "Dans les épaisseurs de la nuit sèche et froide, des milliers d'étoiles se formaient sans trêve et leurs glaçons étincelants, aussitôt détachés, commençaient de glisser insensiblement vers l'horizon. Janine ne pouvait s'arracher à la contemplation de ces feux à la dérive. Elle tournait avec eux et le même cheminement immobile la réunissait peu à peu à son être le plus profond, où le froid et le désir maintenant se combattaient. Devant elle, les étoiles tombaient, une à une, puis s'éteignaient parmi les pierres du désert, et à chaque fois Janine s'ouvrait un peu plus à la nuit. Elle respirait, elle oubliait le froid, le poids des êtres, la vie démente ou figée, la longue angoisse de vivre et de mourir."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "Good Being is knowing who in fact we are; and in order to know who in fact we are, we must first know, moment by moment, who we think we are and what this bad habit of thought compels us to feel and do. A moment of clear and complete knowledge of what we think we are, but in fact are not, puts a stop, for a moment, to the Manichean charade. If we renew, until they become a continuity, these moments of the knowledge of what we are not, we may find ourselves, all of a sudden, knowing who in fact we are."
Author: Aldous Huxley

Author: Bob Richards

Author: C.S. Lewis
10. "Lumea poate sa inteleaga foarte bine ce inseamna sa mori din lipsa de hrana. Prea putini pot insa sa inteleaga sau sa simta odata cu tine ce inseamna sa innebunesti de prea multa singuratate. Se mai intampla sa vada cate un astfel de captiv, de multa vreme ingropat in singuratate, cum iese la lumina zilei nebun sau indobitocit,- cum l-au parasit mintile, cum simturile lui, la inceput inflamate, au trecut prin suferinte fara nume, pentru ca apoi sa cada in amortire- si iata un subiect prea complicat pentru mintile simple, prea abstract pentru intelegerea obisnuita."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
11. "It was all recorded and mixed and there's more continuity in it more direction."
Author: Dave Edmunds
12. "I like weird. Conformity bores but is inescapable for the most part. We all follow something, even if it is following the goal of wanting to stand apart. We are a sea of ordinary people; it is always the quirk, the flaw or the ingenuity that stands out."
Author: Donna Lynn Hope
13. "Pannenberg's conception of retroactive continuity ultimately means that history flows fundamentally from the future into the past, that the future is not basically a product of the past."

Author: Eddie Redmayne
15. ". . . a nation is not an idea only of local extent, and individual momentary aggregation; but it is an idea of continuity, which extends in time as well as in numbers and in space. And this is a choice not only of one day, or one set of people, not a tumultuary and giddy choice; it is a deliberate election of ages and of generations; it is a constitution made by what is ten thousand times better than choice, it is made by the peculiar circumstances, occasions, tempers, dispositions, and moral, civil, and social habitudes of the people, which disclose themselves only in a long space of time. It is a vestment, which accommodates itself to the body. Nor is prescription of government formed upon blind, unmeaning prejudices—for man is a most unwise and a most wise being. The individual is foolish; the multitude, for the moment, is foolish, when they act without deliberation; but the species is wise, and, when time is given to it, as a species it always acts right."
Author: Edmund Burke
16. "I have always clung, or maybe I wanted to cling, to bits and pieces of existence here and there, with no coherence, no center, no continuity in my life. There is a shorter way of saying this: I am a mess."
Author: Elif Shafak
17. "Today, we turn to one person to provide what an entire village once did: a sense of grounding, meaning, and continuity. At the same time, we expect our committed relationships to be romantic as well as emotionally and sexually fulfilling. Is it any wonder that so many relationships crumble under the weight of it all?"
Author: Esther Perel
18. "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: Garrett Hardin
20. "Ma SolitudePour avoir si souvent dormiAvec ma solitudeJe m'en suis fait presqu'une amieUne douce habitudeEll' ne me quitte pas d'un pasFidèle comme une ombreElle m'a suivi çà et làAux quatre coins du mondeNon, je ne suis jamais seulAvec ma solitudeQuand elle est au creux de mon litElle prend toute la placeEt nous passons de longues nuitsTous les deux face à faceJe ne sais pas vraiment jusqu'oùIra cette compliceFaudra-t-il que j'y prenne goûtOu que je réagisse?Non, je ne suis jamais seulAvec ma solitudePar elle, j'ai autant apprisQue j'ai versé de larmesSi parfois je la répudieJamais elle ne désarmeEt si je préfère l'amourD'une autre courtisaneElle sera à mon dernier jourMa dernière compagneNon, je ne suis jamais seulAvec ma solitude"
Author: Georges Moustaki
21. "Je suis noir comme la nuit mais mon courage est plus éclatant que le jour."
Author: Gustave Rouger
22. "I think that at that time none of us quite believed in the Time Machine. The fact is, the Time Traveler was one of those men who are too clever to be believed: you never felt that you saw all round him; you always suspected some subtle reserve, some ingenuity in ambush, behind his lucid frankness. Had Filby shown the model and explained the matter in the Time Traveller's words, we should have shown him far less skepticism. For we should have perceived his motives; a pork butcher could understand Filby."
Author: H.G. Wells

24. "Dear lieutenant, I think we all seduced you, deflected you from a course that might have let you live. Seeking something in the quick of us, searching to secure a kind of love with the provenance of age and land and family, you took over our premises; you presumed to the legacy that was ours, and if you did not see that such assumptions have their own ramifying repercussions, and that the stones demand their own continuity of blood, if you did not understand the gravity of their isolation, the solitude of their trapped state or the hardness of their old responsibility, still you cannot fault the castle or either one of us, or complain that you were led to your own conclusion. I left the castle; you brought us all back."
Author: Iain Banks
25. "No one can play a game alone. One cannot be human by oneself. There is no selfhood where there is no community. We do not relate to others as the persons we are; we are who we are in relating to others. Simultaneously the others with whom we are in relation are themselves in relation. We cannot relate to anyone who is not also relating to us. Our social existence has, therefore, an inescapably fluid character... this ceaseless change does not mean discontinuity; rather change is itself the very basis of our continuity as persons."
Author: James P. Carse
26. "Woolf criticism has not evolved smoothly, and it would be misleading to say that any one approach or interpretation has ever prevailed to the exclusion of others. There are continuities and discontinuities in trends and arguments,areas of common ground and major points of dispute."
Author: Jane Goldman
27. "Elles étaient en touffes avec des racines d'or, épanouies, enfoncées dans les ténèbres et qui soulevaient des mottes luisantes de nuit.(à propos des étoiles)"
Author: Jean Giono
28. "It always gave Wolf a peculiar thrill thus to tighten his grip upon his stick, thus to wrap himself more closely in his faded overcoat. Objects of this kind played a queer part in his secret life-illusion. His stick was like a plough-handle, a ship's runner, a gun, a spade, a sword, a spear. His threadbare overcoat was like a medieval jerkin, like a monk's habit, like a classic toga! It gave him a primeval delight merely to move one foot in front of the other, merely to prod the ground with his stick, merely to feel the flapping of his coat about his knees, when this mood predominated. It always associated itself with his consciousness of the historic continuity---so incredibly charged with marvels of dreamy fancy---of human beings moving to and fro across the earth. It associated itself, too, with his deep, obstinate quarrel with modern inventions, with modern machinery...."
Author: John Cowper Powys
29. "I have not lived so abundantly, full of family, full of continuity and history."
Author: John Lone
30. "The very young have, properly speaking, no moments. It is theprivilege of early youth to live in advance of its days in all the beautifulcontinuity of hope which knows no pauses and no introspection."
Author: Joseph Conrad
31. "Pain has an odd way of expressing itself in the acts of business. No matter how many setbacks a leader might experience, there always seems to be a new opaque watermark of endurance testing, invisibly triggered for erratic combustion in each compounding decision. Every CEO in the world knows this, yet few have the good sense to walk away from the table when their cards are hot. Why win in Act Two when a comeback in Act Three gives you a longer biography? Ego is not so much about immortality as it is about demonstrating stately resistance to nightmarish attacks in public forums. Any good smack to the head is a continuity wake up call, or at least another invitation to be interviewed by Charlie Rose."
Author: Ken Goldstein
32. "While human ingenuity may devise various inventions to the same ends, it will never devise anything more beautiful, nor more simple, nor more to the purpose than nature does, because in her inventions nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous."
Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
33. "Regardless of who originally made it popular, any hit song becomes a challenge to the ingenuity and imagination of other musicians and performers."
Author: Les Baxter
34. "Vision is perhaps our greatest strength... it has kept us alive to the power and continuity of thought through the centuries, it makes us peer into the future and lends shape to the unknown."
Author: Li Ka Shing
35. "The poet who sees himself as a hero or a prophet, or a priest of the socio-political forces to which he is loyal, which he believes are the historical necessities of his times, too easily becomes a puppet. He has no external measure with which to assess reality. Whether he submits to the forces or rejects them, he becomes a parody of himself, and then without knowing it submits his gifts to the demons of his era. He loses his place in the continuity of time. He becomes dependent on social affirmation and the drug of exalted feelings common to all revolutionaries. He destroys, even as he thinks he creates."
Author: Michael D. O'Brien
36. "I see the great continuities in New Zealand history as being decency and common sense and up until now when we've confronted these things we've been able to talk them through, and I'm sure we will with this issue as well."
Author: Michael King
37. "Finally, strategy must have continuity. It can't be constantly reinvented."
Author: Michael Porter
38. "We live each day as if it were merely a rehearsal for the next, and the cosy existence at 7, rue de Grenelle, with its daily proof of continuity, suddenly seems like an island battered by storms."
Author: Muriel Barbery
39. "I try to get a vision of the future, and then I try to figure out where the discontinuities are."
Author: Nolan Bushnell
40. " angst betrof niet die nieuwe zekerheid maar dat waaruit de zekerheid bestond: de weliswaar pas toekomstige maar toch nu al vaststaande onvolledigheid van zijn leven die nu al voelbaar was als een gebrek dat, door zijn omvang, zekerheid van binnenuit in angst veranderde. (...) Of gaat het ons om de behoefte voldoende dingen te hebben beleefd om over je leven te kunnen vertellen alsof het een afgerond geheel is?"
Author: Pascal Mercier
41. "Instead of begging OPEC to drop its oil prices, let's use American leadership and ingenuity to solve our own energy problems."
Author: Pete Domenici
42. "Human has always striven to retain the past, to keep it convincing; there's nothing wicked in that. Without it we have no continuity; we have only the moment. And, deprived of the past, the moment - the present - has little meaning, if any."
Author: Philip K. Dick
43. "- Qu'y-a-t-il au sommet de la montagne ?- Le ciel.- Que dit le loup quand il hurle ?- Joie, force et solitude.- A qui s'adresse-t-il ?- A la lune.- Où va la rivière ?- Remplir la mer.- A qui la nuit fait-elle peur ?- A ceux qui attendent le jour pour voir.- Es-tu vent ou nuage ?- Je suis moi.- Es-tu vent ou nuage ?- Vent.- Es-tu ombre ou lumière ?- Je suis moi.- Es-tu ombre ou lumière ?- Les deux.- Que devient une lame qui se brise ?- Une poussière d'étoile.- Que fais-tu devant une rivière que tu ne peux pas traverser ?- Je le traverse.- Que devient une étoile qui meurt ?- Un rêve qui vit.- Offre moi un mot.- Silence.- Un autre.- Harmonie.- Un dernier.- Fluidité.- L'ours et le chien se disputent un territoire, qui a raison ?- Le chat qui les observe.- Marie tes trois mots.- Marchombre."
Author: Pierre Bottero
44. "You can say that Lebanese has hundreds of lexemes for family relations. Family to the Lebanese is as snow to the Inuit."
Author: Rabih Alameddine
45. "Autrefois, il y avait des galeries aux maisons. Et quelque-fois, les gens restaient assis, tard dans la nuit, bavardant s'ils en avaient envie, se balançant dans leurs fauteuils, silencieux s'ils n'éprouvaient pas le besoin de parler. parfois, ils restaient là, tranquillement, à réfléchir à ruminer. Mon oncle dit que les architectes ont supprimé les galeries pour des raisons d'esthétique. Mais mon oncle dit que c'est un prétexte, rien de plus; la véritable raison, cachée en dessous, c'est qu'on ne voulait pas voir des gens passer des heures assis à ne rien faire, à se balancer, à discuter; c'était une forme détestable de vie en commun. Les gens parlaient trop. Et ils avaient le temps de penser. Alors on a détruit les galeries. Et les jardins, aussi. Il ne reste presque plus de jardins...Et voyez les mobiliers. Plus de rocking-chairs. Ils sont trop confortables. Il faut obliger les gens à courir, à prendre de l'exercise."
Author: Ray Bradbury
46. "The issue of the Betrayal was so central to that, I felt the need to comment upon it. My choices were to ignore the games and put them 'outside' of continuity or to integrate them. I chose the latter."
Author: Raymond E. Feist
47. "Man has always needed to believe in some form of a continuity of achievement."
Author: Robert Vaughn
48. "Vampire... un mot qui suscite peur et fascination. Il désigne une créature, un mort qui quitte sa tombe à la nuit pour boire le sang des vivants et qui revêt bien des formes au fil des siècles. Selon la tradition, certains traits le caractérisent toujours: sa soif de sang, ses forces et ses pouvoirs surnaturels. Des dangers toutefois le guettent et plusieurs signes trahissent sa nature."
Author: Sally Regan
49. "How to forgive the world for its beauty, which merely disguises its ugliness; for its gentleness, which merely cloaks its cruelty; for its illusion of continuity, seamlessly, as the night follows the day, so to speak- whereas in reality life is a series of brutal raptures, falling upon your defenseless hands, like the blows of a woodman's axe?"
Author: Salman Rushdie
50. "Demain, dès l'aube, à l'heure où blanchit la campagne,Je partirai. Vois-tu, je sais que tu m'attends.J'irai par la forêt, j'irai par la montagne.Je ne puis demeurer loin de toi plus longtemps.Je marcherai les yeux fixés sur mes pensées,Sans rien voir au dehors, sans entendre aucun bruit,Seul, inconnu, le dos courbé, les mains croisées,Triste, et le jour pour moi sera comme la nuit.Je ne regarderai ni l'or du soir qui tombe,Ni les voiles au loin descendant vers Harfleur,Et quand j'arriverai, je mettrai sur ta tombeUn bouquet de houx vert et de bruyère en fleur."
Author: Victor Hugo

Noal nodded to one of the corridors 'These corridors are narrow. Good choke points. A man could stand there and only have to fight one or two at a time. He'd last maybe a few minutes. ...'Thom, you're in no shape to fight. Mat, you're the one who's luck can find a way out. Neither of you can stay, but I can."
