Then I read 'This Side of Paradise,' his novel about Princeton - I literally slept with that book under my pillow for two years."

4. "When I observe Gram, I see how fragile the notion of tradition can be. If I take my eyes off the way she kneads her Easter bread, or if I fail to study the way she sews a seam in suede, or if I lose the mental image I have of her when she negotiates a better deal with a button salesman, somehow, the very essence of her will be lost. When she goes, the responsibility for carrying on will fall to me. My mother says I'm the keeper of the flame, because I work here, and because I choose to live here. A flame is a very fragile thing, too, and there are times when I wonder if I'm the on who can keep it going."
Author: Adriana Trigiani
5. "Caci în fata lui Dumnezeu nu se pune atît problema libertatii cît problema raului. E cunoscuta alternativa: sau nu suntem liberi, si Dumnezeu cel atotputernic este responsabil pentru raul din lume, sau suntem liberi si responsabili, dar atunci Dumnezeu nu mai este atotputernic. Toate subtilitatile unor scoli de gîndire n-au schimbat cîtusi de putin caracterul definitiv al acestui paradox."
Author: Albert Camus

We take pains to perfect it, to keep it healthy, but we probably wouldn't go to such extremes if we weren't scared to death to lose it. A paradox: we pretend we don't need it, that it's our minds that matter, and yet the body is the thing we can't ignore and that knocks our thinking minds flat to the floor."
Author: Emily Rapp

19. "- Escute mais isso. Por outro lado, forças jovens, frescas, sucumbem em vão por falta de apoio, e isso aos milhares, e isso em toda parte! Cem, mil boas ações e iniciativas que poderiam ser implementadas e reparadas com o dinheiro da velha, destinado a um mosteiro! Centenas, talvez milhares de existências encaminhadas; dezenas de famílias salvas da miséria, da desagregação, da morte, da depravação, das doenças venéreas - e tudo isso com o dinheiro dela. Mate-a e tome-lhe o dinheiro, para com sua ajuda dedicar-se depois a servir toda a humanidade e a uma causa comum: o que você acha, esse crime ínfimo não seria atenuado por milhares de boas ações? Por uma vida - milhares de vidas salvas do apodrecimento e da degeneração. Uma morte e cem vidas em troca - ora, isso é uma questão de aritimética."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
20. "If there's just one kind of folks, why can't they get along with each other? If they're all alike, why do they go out of their way to despise each other?

Author: Harper Lee

26. "All his court were cast down in slumber, and all the fires faded and were quenched; but the Silmarils in the crown on Morgoth's head blazed forth suddenly with a radiance of white flame; and the burden of that crown and of the jewels bowed down his head, as though the world were set upon it, laden with a weight of care, of fear, and of desire, that even the will of Morgoth could not support. Then Lúthien catching up her winged robe sprang into the air, and her voice came dropping down like rain into pools, profound and dark. She cast her cloak before his eyes, and set upon him a dream, dark as the outer Void where once he walked alone."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Lo que quiero decir es que cuando me besas, ya no quiero hacer nada más que sentirte y tenerte entre mis brazos. ¡Mierda, estoy tan terriblemente enamorado de ti que es como si hubieran volcado una lata de gasolina en mi interior y le hubieran prendido fuego! Pero en este momento no podemos... al menos uno de nosotros debe mantener la cabeza fría. -La mirada que me lanzó disipó mis dudas-. Gwenny, todo esto me da un miedo horrible. Sin ti mi vida ya no tendría ningún sentido, sin ti... querría morirme si a ti te pasara algo."
Author: Kerstin Gier
30. "Another Kilgore Trout book there in the window was about a man who built a time machine so he could go back and see Jesus. It worked, and he saw Jesus when Jesus was only twelve years old. Jesus was learning the carpentry trade from his father.Two Roman soldiers came into the shop with a mechanical drawing on papyrus of a device they wanted built by sunrise the next morning. It was a cross to be used in the execution of a rabble-rouser.Jesus and his father built it. They were glad to have the work. And the rabble-rouser was executed on it. So it goes."

31. "This was his acknowledgment of the impossibility of changing a man's convictions by words, and his recognition of the possibility of everyone thinking, feeling, and seeing things each from his own point of view. This legitimate peculiarity of each individual which used to excite and irritate Pierre now became a basis of the sympathy he felt for, and the interest he took in, other people. The difference, and sometimes complete contradiction, between men's opinions and their lives, and between one man and another, pleased him and drew from him an amused and gentle smile."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
32. "Curiosity, that is, the separate drive to explore the world disinterestedly, without being stimulated by danger or physiological dissatisfaction, is, according to students of evolution, rooted in specific morphological characteristics of our species and thus cannot be eliminated from our minds as long as our species retains its identity. As both Pandora's most deplorable accident and the adventures of our progenitors in Paradise testify, curiosity has been a main cause of all the calamities and misfortunes that have befallen mankind, and it has unquestionably been the source of all its achievements."
Author: Leszek Kołakowski
33. "Ee, sey, bizim ülkemizde,' dedi Alice nefes almakta hala zorlanarak, 'bizim yaptigimiz gibi bir süre çok hizli kosarsaniz,...genellikle bir yere varirsiniz.''Sizinki agir bir ülkeymis!' dedi Kraliçe. 'Simdi, gördügün gibi burada, var gücünle kostugunda ancak oldugun yerde kalirsin. Bir yerlere varmak istiyorsan, en azindan su an kostugunun iki kati kosmalisin!"
Author: Lewis Carroll
34. "Sleeping in a hallway around Bedford Park later that week, I took out my blank transcripts and filled in the grades I wanted, making neat little columns of A's. If I could picture it—if I could take out these transcripts and look at them—then it was almost as if the A's had already happened. Day by day, I was just catching up with what was already real. My future A's, in my heart, had already occurred. Now I just had to get to them."

40. "Stau întins în pat, cufundat în dulceata semisomnului. La ora sase, în prima faza a usoarei treziri, întind mîna spre micul tranzistor aflat lînga perna mea si apas pe buton. Se aud primele stiri ale diminetii... Abia izbutesc sa disting cuvintele si adorm din nou; în felul acesta frazele crainicilor se transforma în vise. E faza cea mai frumoasa a somnului, momentul cel mai încîntator al zilei: datorita radioului gust savoarea neîncetatelor mele adormiri si treziri — acea sublima leganare între starea de somn si trezie, care, în sine, constituie un motiv îndestulator ca omul sa nu regrete faptul de a se fi nascut."
Author: Milan Kundera
41. "He used to talk to me about Russia all the time and had sworn up and down that I'd love it here. "To you, it'd be like a fairy tale," he'd told me."Sorry, comrade. Borg and out-of-date music aren't part of any happy ending I've ever imagined.""Borscht, not borg. And I've seen your appetite. If you were hungry enough, you'd eat it." "So starvation's necessary for this fairy tale to work out?"

Author: Rodney Stark

A common word such as 'castle' is a French loan word, for example; and the whole romance tradition comes from the French. But this sensibility, culture, and language becomes integrated with native culture.As well as the beginnings of what came to be called a courtly love tradition, we can find in Early Middle English (around the time that Layamon was writing Brut) the growth of a local tradition of songs and ballads."
Author: Ronald Carter

Author: Ruth Bernhard
46. "Then faith's paradox is this: that the single individual is higher than the universal, that the single individual determines his relation to the universal through his relation to God, not his relation to God through his relation through the universal... Unless this is how it is, faith has no place in existence; and faith is then a temptation."
Author: Søren Kierkegaard
47. "Mientras no estás enamorada, mientras tu corazón es libre y tu mirada no es de nadie, entre todos los hombres que podrían interesarte ni uno solo se digna a prestarte atención; después, en el momento en que te sientes atrapada por una única persona y no te importan los demás absolutamente nada, todos te persiguen, pronuncian dulces palabras, te galantean."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
48. "By the time these students enter the workforce, many of the jobs they will apply for ill be in industries that don't even exist yet. That's a hard future to prepare someone for. Teachers have their sights set on the real goal: not to produce Ivy League graduates, but to encourage the development of naturally curious, confident, flexible, and happy learners who are ready for whatever the future has in store."
Author: Taylor Mali
49. "Anger ... it's a paralyzing emotion ... you can't get anything done. People sort of think it's an interesting, passionate, and igniting feeling — I don't think it's any of that — it's helpless ... it's absence of control — and I need all of my skills, all of the control, all of my powers ... and anger doesn't provide any of that — I have no use for it whatsoever."[Interview with CBS radio host Don Swaim, September 15, 1987.]"
Author: Toni Morrison
50. "We have become a more juvenile culture. We have become a childish "me, me, me" culture with fifteen-second attention spans. The global village that television was supposed to bring is less a village than a playground...Little attempt is made to pass on our cultural inheritance, and our moral and religious traditions are neglected except in the shallow "family values" arguments."

Whatever our official pieties, deep down we all believe in lives. The sternest formalists are the loudest gossips, and if you ask a cultural-studies maven who believes in nothing but collective forces and class determinisms how she came to believe in this doctrine, she will begin to tell you, eagerly, the story of her life."
