2. "War was a central theme in maths books too. School books - because the Taliban printed books soley for boys - did not calcualte in apples and cakes, but in bullets and kalasnikovs. Something like this: 'little Omar has a kalasnikov with three magazines. There are twenty bullets in each magazine. He uses two thirds of the bullets and kills sixty infidels does he kill with each bullet?"

4. "Designer can inject the most artistic flair. The word "ampersand" didn't come into being until the nineteenth century. At that time & was customarily taught as the twenty-seventh letter of the alphabet and pronounced "and." When schoolchildren recited their ABCs, they concluded with the words "and, per se [i.e., by itself ], ‘and.'" This eventually became corrupted to "ampersand." The symbol is a favorite of law and"

8. "Me miró con angustia en sus ojos. Me dijo: ?Déjala quedarse, Julia. Me necesita en este momento—Lake, me rompiste el corazón. Me rompió el corazón que lo necesitaras más a él de lo que me necesitabas a mí. Tan pronto como las palabras salieron de su boca, me di cuenta que ya habías crecido... que yo ya no era toda tu vida. Will pudo verlo. Se dio cuenta de lo mucho que sus palabras me hirieron. Cuando me volví para regresar a casa, me siguió hasta el patio y me abrazó. Me dijo que nunca te arrebataría de mí. Dijo que te iba a dejar ir... te iba permitir concentrarte en mí y en el tiempo que me quedaba.Coloca el regalo envuelto en la cama. Se acerca a mí y vuelve a tomar mis manos. —Lake, no ha seguido adelante. No eligió este nuevo trabajo sobre ti... eligió a su nuevo trabajo sobre nosotros. Él quería que tuvieras más tiempo conmigo."

9. "There was a pause, while I fought against this other, lesser kind of death that was creeping over me - this death called strangeness, this snapping of all the customary little threads of cause and effect that are our moorings at other times.

11. "Será que uma lágrima podia simbolizar a vida de um humano? De um ser? Nascer, percorrer o seu caminho, fazer as suas escolhas de vida, tomar desvios ou atalhos, para depois, chegar à ravina onde tudo acabava. Frágil ao ponto de qualquer coisa a puder impedir de continuar caminho, um obstáculo que põe fim a tudo. Seria assim a vida, tal como uma lágrima?"
Author: Diana Franco De Sousa
12. "Blood in the water I sing, and one who shed it: deadliest hunger I sing, and one who fed it- weaving the ancient-most tale of the Sea's sending: singing the tragedy, singing the joy unending This is our shame- this is the whole Ocean's glory: this is the Song of the Twelve. Hark to the story! Hearken, and bring it to pass: swift lest the sorrow long ago laid to it's rest devour us tomarrow!"
Author: Diane Duane

Viviré y moriré en mi puesto. Soy la espada en la oscuridad. Soy el vigilante del Muro. Soy el fuego que arde contra el frío, la luz que trae el amanecer, el cuerno que despierta a los durmientes, el escudo que defiende los reinos de los hombres. Entrego mi vida y mi honor a la Guardia de la Noche, durante esta noche y todas las que estén por venir."
Author: George R.R. Martin
15. "(Popular singer Eddie Fisher, appearing on This is Show Business, told Kaufman that women refused to date him because he looked so young.) Mr. Fisher, on Mount Wilson there is a telescope that can magnify the most distant stars up to twenty-four times the magnification of any previous telescope. This remarkable instrument was unsurpassed in the world of astronomy until the construction of the Mount Palomar telescope, an even more remarkable instrument of magnification. Owing to advances and improvements in optical technology, it is capable of magnifying the stars to four times the magnification and resolution of the Mount Wilson telescope - Mr Fisher, if you could somehow put the Mount Wilson telescope inside the Mount Palomar telescope, you still wouldn't be able to detect my interest in your problem."
Author: George S. Kaufman

18. "Remarkably, studies of visual perception have found that two-dimensional images projected onto the retina only achieve full dimensionality as a result of our perception: we infer the third dimension of depth. Sadly, though, as the urgency to expedite all communicative transactions usurps out customary patterns of exchange, perception is accelerated as well. There does not seem to be a great deal of time left over to infer--or interpret, or imagine--much of anything at all. In the end, of course, there is nothing real about this at all, except for our propensity to let it happen."
Author: Jessica Helfand
19. "At the level of high culture with which this book is concerned, active bigotry is probably fairly rare. It is also hardly ever necessary, since the social context is so far from neutral. To act in a way both sexist and racist, to maintain one's class privilege, it is only necessary to act in the customary, ordinary, usual, even polite manner."
Author: Joanna Russ
20. "[People] ask themselves, what is suitable for my position? What is usually done by persons of my station and percuniary circumstances? Or (worse still) what is usually done by persons of a station and circumstances superior to mine? I do not mean that they choose what is customary in preference to what suits their own inclinations. It does not occur to them to have any inclination, except for what is customary. Thus the mind itself is bowed to the yoke: even in what people do for pleasure, conformity is the first thing thought of; they like in crowds; they exercise choice only among things that are commonly done: peculiarity of taste, eccentricity of conduct, are shunned equally with crimes: until by dint of not following their own nature they have no nature to follow: their human capacities are withered and starved: they become incapable of any strong wishes or native pleasures, and are generally without either opinions or feelings of home growth, or properly their own."
Author: John Stuart Mill
21. "Los milicianos corrieron por las calles mientras los ciudadanos se escondían, desesperados, entre casas viejas, en los pozos, en las despensas de sus vecinos. Cerraban las puertas los padres de familia y asían con fuerza sus mejores cuchillos. Las mujeres abrazaban a sus hijos, las sirvientas aseguraban las ventanas. Algunos, los más temerosos, se acurrucaban en el camastro con la débil seguridad de las velas encendidas.Esa noche, los lobos tomaron Barcelona, y en ese ferviente caos de guerra y muerte, Fortuna desenvainó su espada. Había entendido el mensaje. «Gryal está aquí», decían los lobos. «Ha vuelto la primavera», decía su aullido."
Author: Jordi Balaguer
22. "Lo peor de las decisiones es que siempre se deben tomar, como mínimo, dos. Y se tome la que se tome, queda la incertidumbre de qué habría sucedido en el caso de tomar la otra."
Author: Jordi Sierra I Fabra
23. "Ao contrário do que em geral se pensa, tomar uma decisão é uma das decisões mais fáceis deste mundo, como cabalmente se demonstra pelo facto de não fazermos masi nada que multiplicá-las ao longo de todo o santíssimo dia, porém, e aí esbarramos com o busílis da questão, elas sempre nos vêm a posteriori com os seus problemazinhos particulares, ou, para que fiquemos a entender-nos, com os seus rabos por esfolar, sendo o primeiro deles o nosso grau de capacidade para mantê-las e o segundo o nosso grau de vontade para realizá-las."
Author: José Saramago
24. "–¿Cómo es esa famosa "mirada"? –fuera como fuera, iba a tener que empezar a tomar precauciones extremas para protegerse de ella. Amy sonrió.–¿Te acuerda de los dibujos de Tom y Jerry, cuando Tom llevaba días sin comer e imaginaba a Jerry con aspecto de jamón? Algo así."
Author: Julie James
25. "La vida había continuado después, la vida continúa siempre. Te da razones para llorar y razones para reír. Es la vida, Joséphine, confía en ella. La vida es una persona, una persona que hay que tomar por compañera. Entrar en su corriente, en sus remolinos, a veces te hace tragar agua y te crees que vas a morir, y después te agarra por el pelo y te deja más lejos. A veces te hace bailar, otra te pisa los pies. Hay que entrar en la vida como se entra en un baile. No parar el movimiento llorando por uno, acusando a los demás, bebiendo, tomando pastillitas para amortiguar el choque. Bailar, bailar, bailar. Pasar las pruebas que te envía para hacerte más fuerte, más determinada."
Author: Katherine Pancol
26. "I hope they're in town. I want to face them! Reign stood and brandished one of the two swords that she usually wore in sheaths crisscrossed on her back-in addition to the dagger sheath she customarily wore on her forearm. "I'll lunch on their balls!"That was Reign's new threat: to lunch on enemies' balls. "Reege, when you threaten males with that, I don't think it has the result you intend. They think less Lunchables, more tea bag."
Author: Kresley Cole

Author: Kurt Vonnegut
28. "There Bomar is, wherever he is, spending a fortune every day on liquor and beautiful women and expensive playthings, when he could find peace of mind right here with us, for a mere twenty cents.--"Bomar"
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
29. "Son todas líneas", pensó y comenzó a ver a cada una de esas personas como una raya trazada sobre un hipotético mapa. Un gigantesco enredo de calles que se cruzaban, se rozaba, se unían y luego proseguían adelante. Allí afuera, en los caminos del mundo, había miles de millones de líneas, de recorridos de vida. Miles de millones de direcciones. Calles enfiladas, desviadas por azar, a veces interrumpidas bruscamente. Pensó que dos enamorados no eran más que dos recorridos a merced del azar. Podían dibujar los trayectos más absurdos en el mapamundi, dirigirse a cualquier parte y no encontrarse jamás. O bien cruzarse también varias veces y no reconocerse. Podían tomar el mismo autobús todas las mañanas, sin saber nada el uno del otro. Así hasta el fin de sus días, sin relacionarse. Pero bastaba muy poco: un intercambio de frases, incluso casual, y las líneas se abrían mágicamente unido. Dos grises trazos de un solitario recorrido se habrían convertido en una sola calle compartida."
Author: Leonardo Patrignani
30. "Cigarette, flipped it on the table, and began on another. "Just like this." That was when Mama finished her soup with a clank, suppressed a cardboard burp, and answered for him. "That Saukerl," she said. "You know what he did? He rolled up all of his filthy cigarettes, went to the market when it was in town, and traded them with some gypsy." "Eight cigarettes per book." Papa shoved one to his mouth, in triumph. He lit up and took in the smoke. "Praise the Lord for cigarettes, huh, Mama?" Mama only handed him one of her trademark looks of disgust, followed by the most common ration of her vocabulary. "Saukerl." Liesel swapped a customary wink with her papa and finished eating her soup. As always, one of her books was next to her. She could not deny that the answer to her"
Author: Markus Zusak
31. "Once, as he inhaled with his customary vehemence, I had a thought that made my armpits come alive."

33. "Recomeça…Se puderes,Sem angústia e sem pressa.E os passos que deres,Nesse caminho duroDo futuro,Dá-os em liberdade.Enquanto não alcancesNão descanses.De nenhum fruto queiras só metade.E, nunca saciado,Vai colhendoIlusões sucessivas no pomarE vendoAcordado,O logro da aventura.És homem, não te esqueças!Só é tua a loucuraOnde, com lucidez, te reconheças."
Author: Miguel Torga
34. "He didn't call me for a few weeks. This was customary within our friendship, confide and retreat, but I wondered. I wondered if perhaps our last conversation had been an overture. Not the conversation, exactly, but the silences within it. There had been many dark pits of tea-sipping silence; looking back, I could imagine placing my hand on his hand while kneeling in one of these dark pits. And in such a pit could one even be sure what one was doing? One might seek solace in a friend and literally go inside this friend to get the solace; and the friend, being old and familiar, might give especially good solace."
Author: Miranda July
35. "I was reading last night of the aspiration of the old Persian poet, Omar Khayyám. It appealed to me as the highest that can vision.

Erase my name or write it as you will, So I be written in the Book of Love."
Author: Omar Khayyám

Author: Scott Westerfeld
38. "I agree, Dad. I was just explaining to the woman why we don't look anything alike and why you would have been younger than me when I was born. It doesn't mean I don't love you ‘cause you know I do. Make one snotty comment in anger when you're twelve years old going through puberty and getting grounded, and you pay for it for the rest of your life. Parents ain't got no sense of humor. (Omari)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
39. "Let me tell you a story, Alix. This ship…the Talia? It's named after my father's older sister. She killed herself when she was fourteen because she couldn't stand living the horror of her life for another day. With her death she both condemned and freed my father from his monster of a father. I never knew the pain of her life or his. But I named this ship after her to remind me of all the children out there like her and Omari…the children out there like your sister who are silent in their pain. They have no voice and no hope. But I hear them. Every time I think of my parents. Every time I see Omari, I hear the sobs that are kept inside for fear of it making their lives worse, and I will not stand by and see your sister torn apart by an animal. You help me nail him and I swear to you, I will lay Merjack down at your feet and hold him there while you take your revenge. (Devyn)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

48. "Tú me echabas una mirada con un gris signo de interrogación en tus ojos. "Oh, no, no empecemos de nuevo" (incredulidad, exasperación). Pues nunca te dignabas a creer que yo pudiera sentir el deseo -sin intenciones específicas- de hundir mi cara en tu falda tableada, amor mío. La fragilidad de tus brazos desnudos... Cómo anhelaba envolver esos brazos, y tus cuatro miembros límpidos, encantadores -un potrillo acurrucado-, y tomar tu cabeza entre mis manos indignas y estirar hacia atrás la piel de tus sienes y besar tus ojos achinados y... "Por favor, déjame en paz, ¿quieres?", decías. "Dios mío, déjame tranquila". Y yo me levantaba del suelo, mientras tú me mirabas crispando el rostro en una imitación deliberada de mi tic nerveux. Pero no importa, no importa, soy un miserable, no importa, sigamos con mi desgraciada historia."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
49. "But Maine is a special place: there's something about untold acres of natural beauty in concert with an underachieving public school system that leads to deviations from the customary and commonsensical."
Author: William Giraldi
50. "Seems," madam? Nay, it is; I know not "seems."'Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,Nor customary suits of solemn black, Nor windy suspiration of forced breath,No, nor the fruitful river in the eye, Nor the dejected 'havior of the visage,Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief, That can denote me truly: these indeed seem, For they are actions that a man might play: But I have that within which passeth show; These but the trappings and the suits of woe."
Author: William Shakespeare
