1. "Ja cilveki neiemacisies veidot laiku, tad vini neiemacisies neko. Kur tad ir pagrieziena punkts, svira, kas apversa pasauli? Lidz zinamam bridim cilvekus veidoja laiks, tagad laiku veido cilveki. Jasaka, ne vienmer cilvekiem tas izdodas."
Author: Alberts Bels
2. "Es ist nicht so, dass ich unbedingt glücklich sein wollte, das nicht gerade. Ich wollte...mich retten, ja: mich retten. Aber ich habe erst spät begriffen, auf welche Seite man sich schlagen muss: auf die Seite der Sehnsüchte. Man erwartet eigentlich, dass es andere Dinge sind, durch die Menschen gerettet werden können: Pflichterfüllung, Ehrlichkeit, gut sein, gerecht sein. Nein. Es sind die Sehnsüchte, die einen erretten. Sie sind das einzig Wahre. Bist du auf ihrer Seite, wirst du dich retten. Aber als ich das begriff, war es schon zu spät. Wenn du dem Leben Zeit lässt, nimmt es eine eigenartige, unvermeidliche Wendung; und du stellst fest, dass du dich an dem Punkt nicht nach etwas sehnen kannst, ohne dir selbst weh zu tun. An dem Punkt scheitert alles, du kannst dem nicht entgehen, je mehr du um dich schlägst, desto mehr verfängst du dich im dem Netz, je heftiger du aufbegehrst, desto mehr verletzt du dich. Es gibt kein Entrinnen."
Author: Alessandro Baricco

Author: Allama Iqbal
6. "In general, we like to play as a band - guitar, piano, and voice. We also tour with a bass player, a drummer, and somebody who plays keyboard and guitar. We try to play all of our parts and flesh it out to get a lush sound, while also keeping the energy of a three-piece punk act. We want to be the best of all possible worlds."
Author: Andrew Dost
7. "It was very punk rock for me to take a stab at working with Justin Bieber. I don't know how people portray that, or 'Climax,' for that matter. But for me, it was the most adventurous thing I could have done at that exact moment."

11. "A gondolat, hogy nem kell feltétlenül kövérnek lennünk – hogy változtathatunk rajta –, a legtávolibb és legidegenebb kilátás. Kövérek vagyunk, és mindig is azok leszünk, és soha, de soha nem beszélhetünk róla, punktum. Mint Harry Potter Teszlek Süvegje. Mi a „kövéret" húztuk a kalapból, és azok is maradunk halálunk napjáig. A kövérek közé tartozunk. Ez a mi fajtánk. A mi üzemmódunk."
Author: Caitlin Moran
12. "Steampunk is nothing more than what happens when Goths discover brown."
Author: Charles Stross
13. "Dane discarded his speargun with visible relief. As a paladin of the Church of God Kraken, he had few options. Like many groups devoid of real power and realpolitik, the church was actually constrained by its aesthetics. Its operatives could not have guns, simply, because guns were not squiddy enough.It was a common moan. Drunk new soldiers of the Cathedral of the Bees might whine: "It's not that I don't think sting-tipped blowpipes aren't cool, it's just…" "I've gotten rally good with the steam-cudgel," a disaffected Pistonpunk might ask her elders "but wouldn't it be useful to…?" Oh for a carbine, devout assassins pined."
Author: China Miéville
14. "Punk was perfect for lazy people, because anyone could do it--you didn't even need to know how to play your instrument, assuming you knew how to plug it in. There was really no difference between Sid Vicious and anyone in London who owned a bass."
Author: Chuck Klosterman
15. "Gemma Davidson," she answered, her voice as groggy as I felt. "Where are you?" I asked. "Who is this?" "Elvis." "What time is it?" "Hammer time?" "Charley." "Did you text me? Did your car break down?" "No and no. Why are you doing this to me?" She was funny. "Check your cell." I heard a loud, sleepy sigh, some rustling of sheets, then, "It won't come on." "Not at all?" "No. What did you do to it?" "I ate it for breakfast. Check the battery compartment." "Where the hell is that?" "Um, behind the battery door." "Are you punking me?" I heard her fumbling with the phone. "Gem, if I was going to punk you, I wouldn't simply turn off your phone. I would pour honey in your hair while you slept. Or, you know, something like that." "That was you?" she asked, appalled."
Author: Darynda Jones
16. "Now you," Grandma barks at him. "Yes, you, the invisible truck driver," she added, giving me a wicked grin. "Go stand next to Rose over there by the stone bench and smile like you mean it.""Yes, ma'am," Will said."I am not to be called ma'am. My name is Maggie," she crabbed."Well, I also have a name. It's Will," he shot back.Everyone stopped. We held our breath, waiting to see what Grandma would say next, but she just smiled at him. "I like this one, Rose. He's got spunk."
Author: Donna Freitas

Author: Ernest Cline
19. "Das Vergnügen einsamer Spaziergänge beruht gewiss auch darauf, dass man das Seine mit sich trägt. Unser Bewusstsein begleitet uns gleich einem Kugelspiegel, oder besser gleich einer Aura, deren Mittelpunkt wir sind. Die schönen Bilder dringen in diese Aura ein und erfahren in ihr eine atmosphärische Veränderung. So schreiten wir unter Zeichen wie unter Nordlichtern, Sonnenringen und Regenbögen dahin. Diese erlesene Vermählung und Zeugung mit der Welt gehört zu den höchsten Genüssen, die uns beschieden sind."
Author: Ernst Jünger

21. "Your mother is probably right," Dad said. "Social services frowns on drunk ten-year-ols. Besides, when I dropped my drumsticks and puked onstage, it was punk. If you drop your bow and smell like a brewery, it will look gauche. You classical-music people are so snobby that way."
Author: Gayle Forman
22. "Mia, Mia, Mia," he said, stroking the tendrils of my hair that had escaped from the wig. "This is the you I like. You definitely dressed sexier and are, you know, blond, and that's different. But the you who you are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday, the same you I'll be in love with tomorrow. I love that you're fragile and tough, quiet and kick-ass. Hell, you're one of the punkest girls I know, no matter who you listen to or what you wear."
Author: Gayle Forman
23. "Me, too," I said. And then we stopped talking for a while as Adam strummed an unfamiliar melody. I asked him what he was playing."I'm calling it ‘The Girlfriend's-Going-to-Juilliard-Leaving-My-Punk-Heart-in-Shreds Blues,' " he said, singing the title in an exaggeratedly twangyvoice. Then he smiled that goofy shy smile that I felt like came from the truest part of him. "I'm kidding.""Good," I said."
Author: Gayle Forman
24. "Nigdy nie zapominaj o tym, kim jestes, bo swiat na pewno o tym nie zapomni. Uczyn z tego swoja sile, a wtedy przestanie to byc twoja slabym punktem. Zrób z tego swoja zbroje, a nikt nie uzyje tego przeciwko tobie."
Author: George R.R. Martin

Author: Georgia Cates

Author: Greg Ginn
27. "Cel w zyciu. Kazdy go szuka, malenkiego punktu na horyzoncie, do którego móglby zmierzac. Bez niego kluczysz, bladzisz, krecisz sie w miejscu. Tracisz czas i ciagle na cos czekasz. Na cud."

Author: Jerry Only
31. "I sometimes feel a bit embarrassed to play guitar. There's something - I don't want to sound ungrateful - but there's something very old-fashioned and traditional about it. You meet kids today whose grandparents were in punk bands. It's very old and traditional, but then, so is an orchestra and so is a string section."
Author: Jonny Greenwood
32. "I was born in San Francisco. I was raised in Oakland, so I'm, like, super Bay Area born, and, you know, it's just really multicultural up there, and there's a lot of subcultures just from, like, anything, like from rockabilly to, like, crazy punk scenes to, you know, a huge rap scene, and there's just all kinds of things you can do out there."
Author: Kreayshawn

Author: Laurell K. Hamilton
35. "I adore the way fan fiction writers engage with and critique source texts, by manipulating them and breaking their rules. Some of it is straight-up homage, but a lot of [fan fiction] is really aggressive towards the source text. One tends to think of it as written by total fanboys and fangirls as a kind of worshipful act, but a lot of times you'll read these stories and it'll be like ‘What if Star Trek had an openly gay character on the bridge?' And of course the point is that they don't, and they wouldn't, because they don't have the balls, or they are beholden to their advertisers, or whatever. There's a powerful critique, almost punk-like anger, being expressed there—which I find fascinating and interesting and cool."
Author: Lev Grossman
36. "It's funny; we never had anything like credibility. Even though we all have some sort of punk-rock background, but so what? I really don't care about that. What's credibility anyway? Who has credibility?"
Author: Mark McGrath

Author: Michael Ian Black

Author: Moby

Author: Nadine Velazquez
40. "Das echte Liebesleid nistet sich an der Basis unserer Existenz ein, erwischt uns unerbittlich an unserem schwächsten Punkt, greift von da auf alles andere über und verteilt sich unaufhaltsam über unseren ganzen Körper und unser ganzes Leben. Wenn wir unglücklich verliebt sind, dienen unsere sämtlichen Leiden und Sorgen, vom Tod des Vaters bis hin zum banalsten Missgeschick, wie zum Beispiel einem verlegten Schlüssel, als neuerlicher Auslöser für den Urschmerz, der stets bereit ist, wieder anzuschwellen. Wessen Leben durch die Liebe auf den Kopf gestellt wird, so wie meines, der meint immer, zusammen mit dem Liebesleid würden auch alle anderen Sorgen ein Ende finden, und so rührt er unwillkürlich immer wieder an der Wunde in sich drinnen."
Author: Orhan Pamuk

Author: Rick Rubin
42. "There is a great deal of cyberpunk that I admire, especially the work of William Gibson which I think is excellent. Somehow he speaks from his own heart and cyber punk is what comes out."

43. "Zahlreiche Untersuchungen haben ergeben, dass die Psyche nur bis zu einem ganz bestimmten Punkt belastbar ist, ich nenne ihn den seelischen Siedepunkt. Sobald die Grausamkeit, die man dem Körper oder Geist zufügt, zum Beispiel während einer Folter, diesen Siedepunkt überschreitet, entkoppelt sich der Leidende von der Realität. Er flüchtet in ein anderes Ich, in dem er die Schmerzen nicht mehr ertragen muss."
Author: Sebastian Fitzek

Author: Siouxsie Sioux

Author: Stanley Crouch
46. "Back in the "leather and lace" eighties, I was the fantasy editor for a publishing company in New York City. It was a great time to be young and footloose on the streets of Manhattan—punk rock and folk music were everywhere; Blondie, the Eurythmics, Cyndi Lauper, and Prince were all strutting their stuff on the newly created MTV; and the eighties' sense of style meant I could wear my scruffy black leather into the office without turning too many heads. The fantasy field was growing by leaps and bounds, and I was right in the middle of it, working with authors I'd worshiped as a teen, and finding new ones to encourage and publish."
Author: Terri Windling
47. "But there's actually a lot of punk bands out there that go out of the norm, use odd time signatures, or a lot of different tempo changes in a song."
Author: Travis Barker
48. "The most punk-rock thing you can do in L.A. is to say ‘George Bush is fucking awesome' instead of talking about how lame it is that he's fighting for oil."
Author: Trey Parker
49. "Ferrentino into separate classes. The teacher for the advanced class was a spunky woman named Imogene Hill, known as "Teddy," and she became, Jobs said, "one of the saints of my life." After watching"
Author: Walter Isaacson

Author: William D. Burt
