Author: Abdul Bari.
2. "History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.{Letter to scientist Alexander von Humboldt, 6 December, 1813}"
Author: Alexander Von Humboldt

4. "Greed is not a defect in the gold that is desired but in the man who loves it perversely by falling from justice which he ought to esteem as incomparably superior to gold; nor is lust a defect in bodies which are beautiful and pleasing: it is a sin in the soul of the one who loves corporal pleasures perversely, that is, by abandoning that temperance which joins us in spiritual and unblemishable union with realities far more beautiful and pleasing; nor is boastfulness a blemish in words of praise: it is a failing in the soul of one who is so perversely in love with other peoples' applause that he despises the voice of his own conscience; nor is pride a vice in the one who delegates power, still less a flaw in the power itself: it is a passion in the soul of the one who loves his own power so perversely as to condemn the authority of one who is still more powerful."
Author: Augustine Of Hippo

6. "Iz," Alec said tiredly. "It's not like it's one big bad thing. It's a lot of little invisible things. When Magnus and I were traveling, and I'd call from the road, Dad never asked how he was. When I get up to talk in Clave meetings, no one listens, and I don't know if that's because I'm young or if it's because of something else. I saw Mom talking to a friend about her grandchildren and the second I walked into the room they shut up. Irina Cartwright told me it was a pity no one would ever inherit my blue eyes now." He shrugged and looked toward Magnus, who took a hand off the wheel for a moment to place it on Alec's. "It's not like a stab wound you can protect me from. It's a million little paper cuts every day."
Author: Cassandra Clare
7. "["All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant."] The original Hebrew word that has been translated "paths" means "well-worn roads' or "wheel tracks," such ruts as wagons make when they go down our green roads in wet weather and sink in up to the axles. God's ways are at times like heavy wagon tracks that cut deep into our souls, yet all of them are merciful."
Author: Charles H. Spurgeon
8. "Only bad shepherds use entrances other than the door. Didn't your mother teach you anything?""Yes, she did. That you're a troublemaker."

10. "Es gibt keinen Gott und Dirac ist sein Prophet. (There is no God and Dirac is his Prophet.){A remark made during the Fifth Solvay International Conference (October 1927), after a discussion of the religious views of various physicists, at which all the participants laughed, including Dirac, as quoted in Teil und das Ganze (1969), by Werner Heisenberg, p. 119; it is an ironic play on the Muslim statement of faith, the Shahada, often translated: 'There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his Prophet.'}"
Author: Dirac
11. "Very well!" he said. "You shall prove your worth by facing me in a joust!" I'd never heard of an undead lich king challenging someone to a joust. Especially not in a subterranean burial chamber. "All right," I said uncertainly. "But won't we be needing horses for that?" "Not horses," he replied, stepping away from his throne. "Birds."
Author: Ernest Cline

Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
16. "There was yet another disadvantage attaching to the whole of Newton's physical inquiries, ... the want of an appropriate notation for expressing the conditions of a dynamical problem, and the general principles by which its solution must be obtained. By the labours of LaGrange, the motions of a disturbed planet are reduced with all their complication and variety to a purely mathematical question. It then ceases to be a physical problem; the disturbed and disturbing planet are alike vanished: the ideas of time and force are at an end; the very elements of the orbit have disappeared, or only exist as arbitrary characters in a mathematical formula."
Author: George Boole
17. "I see many people who disguise themselves. I know some people who say, "I'm an artist, I'm very creative, I'm different from ordinary people." But I don't believe those people. I like to see the strangeness or weirdness in ordinary people or ordinary scenery or ordinary, everyday life."
Author: Haruki Murakami
18. "Since we left Kyirong (10 weeks ago) we had not been able to wash or bathe, and our hair and beards were frozen stiff... We came to a regular lake whose black bubbling waters flowed off to a clear brook. Of course we decided to bathe, and walked into the water at a point where it was pleasantly warm. As we walked upstream, it grew hotter and hotter... I wallowed in the hot water. I had brought with me my last piece of soap from Kyirong, and put it on the bank beside me, looking forward to a through soaping climax of my bath. Unluckily, I had not noticed that a crow was observing me with interest. He suddenly swooped and carried off my treasure. I sprang onto the bank with an oath, but in a moment was back in the hot water, my teeth clattering with cold. In Tibet the crows are as thievish as magpies are with us."
Author: Heinrich Harrer
19. "He saw all these forms and faces in a thousand relationships become newly born. Each one was mortal, a passionate, painful example of all that is transitory. Yet none of them died, they only changed, were always reborn, continually had a new face: only time stood between one face and another."
Author: Hermann Hesse
20. "In Paris the swaying lanterns are lit in the streets; lights shine through water, fuzzy, diffuse. Saint-Just sits by an insufficient fire, in a poor light. He is a Spartan after all, and Spartans don't need home comforts. He has begun his report, his list of accusations; if Robespierre saw it now, he would tear it up, but in a few days' time it will be the very thing he needs. Sometimes he stops, half-glances over his shoulder. He feels someone has come into the room behind him; but when he allows himself to look, there is nothing to see. It is my destiny, he feels, forming in the shadows of the room. It is the guardian angel I had, long ago when I was a child. It is Camille Desmoulins, looking over my shoulder, laughing at my grammar. He pauses for a moment. He thinks, there are no living ghosts. He takes hold of himself. Bends his head over his task. His pen scratches. His strange letterforms incise the paper. His handwriting is minute. He gets a lot of words to the page."
Author: Hilary Mantel
21. "The power of a bold idea uttered publicly in defiance of dominant opinion cannot be easily measured. Those special people who speak out in such a way as to shake up not only the self-assurance of their enemies, but the complacency of their friends, are precious catalysts for change."
Author: Howard Zinn
22. "I grew up taking it for granted that missionaries were what American boys grew up to be."
Author: Huston Smith
23. "Beauty can break a heart and make it think about something more spiritual than the mindless routine we go through day after day to get by. Francis was a singer, a poet, an actor. He knew that the imagination was a stealth way into people's souls, a way to get all of us to think about God. For him, beauty was its own apologetic. That's why a church should care about the arts. They inspire all of us to think about the eternal."
Author: Ian Morgan Cron
24. "Ombrosa non c'è più. Guardando il cielo sgombro, mi domando se è davvero esistita. Quel frastaglio di rami e foglie, biforcazioni, lobi, spiumii, minuto e senza fine, e il cielo a sprazzi irregolari e ritagli, forse c'era solo perché ci passasse mio fratello con suo leggero passo di codibugnolo, era un ricamo fatto di nulla che assomiglia a questo filo d'inchiostro, come l'ho lasciato correre per pagine e pagine, zeppo di cancellature, di rimandi, di sgorbi nervosi, di macchie, di lacune, che a momenti si sgrana in grossi acini chiari, a momenti si infittisce in segni minuscoli come semi puntiformi, ora si ritorce su se stesso, ora si biforca, ora collega grumi di frasi con contorni di foglie o di nuvole, e poi si intoppa, e poi ripiglia a attorcigliarsi, e corre e corre e si sdipana e avvolge un ultimo grappolo insensato di parole idee sogni ed è finito."
Author: Italo Calvino
25. "Cerré los ojos como me dijo y lentamente me giró hacia él. Puso sus manos en mi cara y me acercó a la suya, por alguna razón no podía reaccionar y me estaba dejando llevar. Inconscientemente puse mis manos en su pecho y al sentirlo tan firme y tan fuerte una reacción extraña y placentera se activó en mi cuerpo. Poco a poco sentí su cálido aliento y su nariz tocando la mía y sin darme cuenta, sus labios se posesionaron de los míos con fuerza, sujetándome de la nuca para evitar que lo rechazara, asaltando mi boca, explorando con su lengua, bebiendo mi esencia, dejándome sin aliento y amenazando con arrancarme los labios y ahogarme. Jadeaba intentando respirar y él gemía a la vez que succionaba todo de mí, mi cuerpo se excitó respondiendo a él de manera exagerada al sentir su fuerza, mis instintos de mujer me habían traicionado."
Author: Itxa Bustillo
26. "Ve yine her zamanki gibi,ince,çevik kiralik sevgililer alevlerin pariltisi,ipekler,elmaslar ve açik kadin omuzlari arasinda kivriliyor ve dans ediyordu.(San Fransiskolu Adam adli öyküden)"
Author: Ivan Bunin
27. "The Great Ones, the sages of every age, tell me what to look for. They say that the answer lies not elsewhere but right where I am, here where I am both the center and the source of the universe. They say that, contrary to what I may think I am, what I really am is formless, boundless, timeless, and deathless; that I am utterly transparent, empty, not an object. They say that this clarity that lies at the very heart of my humanity is none other than the Self, God, Buddha, Tao, and the Beloved, and that to see and be this requires no change, no achievement, no struggle, for it is already what I am; in fact, I cannot not be it. They say that no one else can tell me what I am, that I must see for myself, and should I discover this and live consciously from this, all will be right, all will be true."
Author: J. C. Amberchele
28. "Il re degli antri che stan sotto il montee delle rocce aride scavate,che fu signore delle argentee fonti queste cose riavrà,già a lui strappateSul capo il suo diadema poserà,dell'arpa ancora sentirà il bel canto,ed in sale dorate echeggerà di melodie passate il dolce incantoSui monti le foreste ondeggeranno,ondeggeranno al sole l'erbe lucenti,le ricchezze a cascate scenderannoed i fiumi saranno ori fulgentiI ruscelli felici scorreranno i laghi brilleran nella campagna e dolori e tristezza svanirannoal ritorno del Re della Montagna"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
29. "Rosie flicks out her second knife and takes aim. It spins out of her hand like a star, straight at the Alpha's chest. But the Alpha knocks it away easily. He raises a clawed hand at my sister and I feel a scream erupting in my throat, recognizing the motion from seven years ago. The swing will take my sister's eye. I storm through the still-transforming Fenris, swinging my hatchet as if I'm hacking at tree limbs. Rosie's eyes widen in horror as the Alpha's claws being to descend. I grit my teeth and force my body forward, now ignoring the other wolves, desperate to reach her.A roaring scream, all human but as fierce as any Fenris howl, echoes through the parking lot. My head snaps to see its source: Silas is running toward Rosie, hunting knives in one hand, axe aloft in the other. His eyes burn brighter than any hellfire. He swings out just as the Alpha's claws are about to reach Rosie's face, knocking the monster out of the way."
Author: Jackson Pearce
30. "I decided that now is the time to start doing the things that really interest me and I find important. It was in the 10 years of the MacArthur grant that I began working on my first book... and I began putting more work into environmental history."
Author: Jared Diamond
31. "Schade dass die Natur nur einen Mensch aus dir schuf / denn zum wurdigen Mann war und zum Schelmen der Stoff" (loose translation: nature, alas, made only one being out of you although there was material for a good man & a rogue)"
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
32. "He knows that after him everything will continue on much as before, except that there will be a minuscule absence, a barely detective gap in the so-called grand scheme, one unit fewer now. Or not even that, not even an empty space where he once was, for all will rush immediately to fill that vacuum. Pft. Gone. Recollections of him will remain in the minds of others for a while, but presently those others too will die and his few relics with them. And then all will be dark."
Author: John Banville
33. "El viaje no acaba nunca. Solo los viajeros acaban. E incluso estos pueden prolongarse en memoria, en recuerdo, en relatos. Cuando el viajero se sentó en la arena de la playa y dijo: "no hay nada más que ver", sabía que no era así. El fin de un viaje es sólo el inicio de otro. Hay que ver lo que no se ha visto, ver otra vez lo que ya se vio, ver en primavera lo que se había visto en verano, ver de día lo que se vio de noche, con el sol lo que antes se vio bajo la lluvia, ver la siembra verdeante, el fruto maduro, la piedra que ha cambiado de lugar, la sombra que aquí no estaba. Hay que volver a los pasos ya dados, para repetirlos y para trazar caminos nuevos a su lado. Hay que comenzar de nuevo el viaje. Siempre. El viajero vuelve al camino. —Viaje a Portugal, Saramago—"
Author: José Saramago
34. "Francesca actually felt her chin drop. "Mother," she said, shaking her head, "you really should have stopped at seven.""Children, you mean?" Violet asked, sipping at her tea. "Sometimes I do wonder.""Mother!" Hyacinth exclaimed.Violet just smiled at her. "Salt?""It took her eight tries to get it right," Hyacinth announced, thrusting the salt cellar at her mother with a decided lack of grace."And does that mean that you, too, hope to have eight children?" Violet inquired sweetly."God no," Hyacinth said. With great feeling. And neither she nor Francesca could quite resist a chuckle after that."

Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
41. "Used to the conditions of a capitalistic environment, the average American takes it for granted that every year business makes something new and better accessible to him. Looking backward upon the years of his own life, he realizes that many implements that were totally unknown in the days of his youth and many others which at that time could be enjoyed only by a small minority are now standard equipment of almost every household. He is fully confident that this trend will prevail also in the future. He simply calls it the American way of life and does not give serious thought to the question of what made this continuous improvement in the supply of material goods possible."
Author: Ludwig Von Mises
42. "Their arrogance protected them against any liking for their fellow-man, against the slightest interest in the strangers sitting all about them, amidst whom M. de Stermaria adopted the manner one has in the buffet-car of a train, grim, hurried, stand-offish, brusque, fastidious and spiteful, surrounded by other passengers whom one has never seen before, whom one will never see again and towards whom the only conceivable way of behaving is to make sure that they keep away from one's cold chicken and stay out of one's chosen corner-seat."
Author: Marcel Proust
43. "But then she did. she died. no more visits, no more phone calls. And without even realizing it, I began to drift, as if my roots had been pulled, as if I were floating down some side branch of a river."
Author: Mitch Albom
44. "I'd spent my entire life in Seattle, watching others pass me by, day after day, completely oblivious to me. I remained along the background. I was an outsider; the eye looking in on the world around me.I was the puppet eager to cut her strings.I had witnessed the transformation humans must undergo in order to become Programs. I had watched as their humanity was stripped from them while they lay motionless, their hearts barely beating. My uncle had told the others that he only took bodies of the deceased, but those of us who had spent time in the operating rooms knew differently."
Author: Nicole Sobon
