1. "OUr teachers at LT&C had their A levels and the odd teaching certificate. It is astonishing how a black crepe robe worn over a coat or blouse gives a Cockney punter or a Covent Garden flower girl the gravitas of an Oxford don. Accent be damned in Africa, as long as it's foreign and you have the right skin colour."
Author: Abraham Verghese
2. "Wenn Menschenherzen brechen und Menschenseelen verzweifeln, dann blicken aus dem Dämmerlicht der Vergangenheit die großen Überwinder von Not und Sorge, von Schmach und Elend, von geistiger Unfreiheit und körperlichem Zwange auf sie hernieder und reichen den verzagenden Sterblichen ihre ewigen Hände!Wehe dem Volke, das sich schämt, sie zu erfassen!"
Author: Adolf Hitler
3. "Le Bien ne laisse aucune trace matérielle – et donc aucune trace, car vous savez ce que vaut la gratitude des hommes. Rien ne s'oublie aussi vite que le Bien. Pire: rien ne passe aussi inaperçu que le Bien, puisque le Bien véritable ne dit pas son nom – s'il le dit, il cesse d'être le Bien, il devient de la propagande. Le Beau, lui, peut durer toujours: il est sa propre trace. On parle de lui et de ceux qui l'ont servi. Comme quoi le Beau et le Bien sont régis par des lois opposées: le Beau est d'autant plus beau qu'on parle de lui, le Bien est d'autant moins bien qu'il en est question. Bref, un être responsable qui se dévouerait à la cause du Bien ferait un mauvais placement.- Pourtant, le Mal, on en parle !- Ah oui: le Mal est encore plus rentable que le Beau. Ceux qui ont investi dans le Mal ont fait le meilleur placement. Les noms des bienfaiteurs de votre époque sont oubliés depuis longtemps, quand ceux de Staline ou de Mussolini ont à nos oreilles des consonances familières."
Author: Amélie Nothomb
4. "Who do you have to find?" "The boy. My son. Daemon." Lucivar's heart clogged his throat as he watched Jaenelle pale. "Daemon." Jaenelle shuddered. "The gold key." "I have to find him." Tersa's voice rang with frustration and fear. "If the pain doesn't end soon, it will destroy him." Jaenelle gave no sign of having heard or understood the words. "Daemon," she whispered. "How could I have forgotten Daemon?" "I must go back to Terreille. I must find him." "No," Jaenelle said in her midnight voice. "I'll find him." Tersa stopped her restless movements. "Yes," she said slowly, as if trying hard to remember something. "He would trust you. He would follow you out of the Twisted Kingdom."
Author: Anne Bishop

Author: Billy Wilder
7. "The term 'cost shifting,' as I use it, refers to those items in a university's budget that used to be reimbursed by the federal government but are no longer paid for by them."
Author: Charles Vest
8. "The foreign correspondent is frequently the only means of getting an important story told, or of drawing the world's attention to disasters in the making or being covered up. Such an important role is risky in more ways than one. It can expose the correspondent to actual physical danger; but there is also the moral danger of indulging in sensationalism and dehumanizing the sufferer. This danger immediately raises the question of the character and attitude of the correspondent, because the same qualities of mind which in the past separated a Conrad from a Livingstone, or a Gainsborough from the anonymous painter of Francis Williams, are still present and active in the world today. Perhaps this difference can best be put in one phrase: the presence or absence of respect for the human person."
Author: Chinua Achebe
9. "I write. I give intimate private names to an external and foreign world. In a sense, I make it mine. In a sense, I return from feeling exiled and foreign to feeling at home. By doing so, I am already making a small change in what appeared to me earlier as unchangeable. Also, when I describe the impermeable arbitrariness that signs my destiny — arbitrariness at the hands of a human being, or arbitrariness at the hands of fate — I suddenly discover new nuances, subtleties. I discover that the mere act of writing about arbitrariness allows me to feel a freedom of movement in relation to it. That by merely facing up to arbitrariness I am granted freedom — maybe the only freedom a man may have against any arbitrariness: the freedom to put your tragedy into your own words. The freedom to express yourself differently, innovatively, before that which threatens to chain and bind one to arbitrariness and its limited, fossilizing definitions."
Author: David Grossman
10. "Already we're seeing graduates of U.S. higher education going back to their home countries and contributing to societies there, where in the past they would have stayed in the U.S. and built new companies here. We have to have immigration reform that allows talented foreigners to become Americans."
Author: David Malpass
11. "Jon Stewart is exactly the same guy he's always been, only with money. He knows that the moment he really believes he's important, the funny goes away and he becomes Bill O'Reilly, except shorter and Jewish."
Author: Denis Leary

15. "Aus einem Buch abschreiben - PLAGIAT.Aus zwei Büchern abschreiben - ESSAY.Aus drei Büchern abschreiben - DISSERTATION.Aus vier Büchern abschreiben - EIN FÜNFTES GELEHRTES BUCH."
Author: Ferenc Molnár
16. "Is it life?" he answered, "I would rather be without it," he said, "for there is queer small utility in it. You cannot eat it or drink it or smoke it in your pipe, it does not keep the rain out and it is a poor armful in the dark if you strip it and take it to bed with you after a night of porter when you are shivering with the red passion. It is a great mistake and a thing better done without, like bed-jars and foreign bacon."
Author: Flann O'Brien
17. "Sekme pirmiausia reikalauja darbo ir drausmes, visi tai žino."
Author: Françoise Sagan
18. "They hate kings, they hate priests, they hate soldiers, they hate sailors. They distrust men of science, they denounce the middle classes, they despair of working men, but they adore humanity. Only they always speak of humanity as if it were a curious foreign nation. They are dividing themselves more and more from men to exalt the strange race of mankind. They are ceasing to be human in the effort to be humane."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
19. "Parfois, tu rêves que le sommeil est une morte lente qui te gagne, une anestésie douce et terrible à la fois, une nécrose heureuse : le froid monte le long de tes jambes, le long de tes bras, monte lentement, t'engourdit, t'annihile.Ton orteil est une montagne lointaine, ta jambe un fleuve, ta joue est ton oreiller, tu loges tout entier dans ton pouce, tu fonds, tu coules comme du sable, comme du mercure."
Author: Georges Perec
20. "Le système de gouvernement représentatif connaît aujourd'hui une crise en partie parce qu'il a perdu, avec le temps, toutes les institutions qui pouvaient permettre une participation effective des citoyens et, d'autre part, parce qu'il est gravement atteint par le mal qui affecte le système des partis: la bureaucratisation et la tendance des deux partis à ne représenter que leurs appareils."
Author: Hannah Arendt
21. "I will not nullify, I will not secede, but I will under sovereign State authority fight in the Union another revolutionary conflict for civil liberty, and a Union which will defend it."
Author: Henry A. Wise
22. "Disse Siddharta: "Che dovrei mai dirti, io, o venerabile? Forse questo, che tu cerchi troppo? Che tu non pervieni a trovare per il troppo cercare?""Come dunque?" chiese Govinda."Quando qualcuno cerca," rispose Siddharta "allora accade facilmente che il suo occhio perda la capacità di vedere ogni altra cosa, fuori di quella che cerca, e che egli non riesca a trovar nulla, non possa assorbir nulla in sé, perché pensa sempre unicamente a ciò che cerca, perché ha uno scopo, perché è posseduto dal suo scopo. Cercare significa: avere uno scopo. Ma trovare significa: esser libero, restare aperto, non avere scopo. Tu, venerabile, sei forse di fatto uno che cerca, poiché, perseguendo il tuo scopo, non vedi tante cose che ti stanno davanti agli occhi"."
Author: Hermann Hesse
23. "This was the winter of 2008/9. Work was ongoing to reinstate a tram system in the city. A lot of people couldn't see the point of trams and many more disliked the disruption. Streets were closed off. There was almost a sense of ‘apartheid' as the roadworks made it difficult to move from New Town to Old Town and vice versa. Added to which, the weather was fairly grim. And the banks looked ready to implode."
Author: Ian Rankin
24. "God in His love always wills what is best for us. In His wisdom He always knows what is best, and in His sovereignty He has the power to bring it about."
Author: Jerry Bridges

"There dwells a life in every star;With brother spheres it rolls afarIts self-elected, radiant way.Still throb within the great earth-ballThe forces which conduct us allFrom day to night, from night to day. - - - GER:Das Leben wohnt in jedem Sterne:Er wandelt mit den andern gerneDie selbsterwählte reine Bahn;Im innern Erdenball pulsierenDie Kräfte, die zur Nacht uns führenUnd wieder zu dem Tag heran.Zahme Xenien VI."
Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Author: Knut Hamsun

39. "Prince Edward confirmed the sentence; but he was reflecting deeply and beginning silently to form views as to how a man destined to great responsibilities should behave. To listen before speaking, to inform yourself before judging, to understand before deciding, and to remember always that there were to be found in every man the springs both of the highest as well as the lowest actions: these, for a sovereign, were the first steps towards wisdom."
Author: Maurice Druon

42. "Making you believe what he wanted you to believe was his very reason for being. Maybe his only reason. I was intrigued by the way he turned events, or hints I had given him about people, into reality--that is, his kind of reality. This obsessive reinvention of the real never stopped, what-could-be having always to top what is. ...I began to wonder which was real, the woman in the book or the one I was pretending to be upstairs. Neither of them was particularly "me." I was acting just as much upstairs; I was not myself just as much Maria in the book was not myself. Perhaps she was. I began not to know which was true and which was not, like a writer who comes to believe that he's imagined what he hasn't. ...The book began living in me all the time, more than my everyday life."
Author: Philip Roth
43. "Sin is cosmic treason. Sin is treason against a perfectly pure Sovereign. It is an act of supreme ingratitude toward the One to whom we owe everything, to the One who has given us life itself. Have you ever considered the deeper implications of the slightest sin, of the most minute peccadillo? What are we saying to our Creator when we disobey Him at the slightest point? We are saying no to the righteousness of God. We are saying, "God, Your law is not good. My judgement is better than Yours. Your authority does not apply to me. I am above and beyond Your jurisdiction. I have the right to do what I want to do, not what You command me to do."
Author: R.C. Sproul

46. "Forse oggi ti va di leggermi una poesia", riprese lei. "A tua scelta. Mi mancano tanto. Potrei fare a meno di "Oprah", ma una vita senza libri è una vita di sete, e una vita senza poesia è...". Rise. Lo sconcerto che udii in quella risata mi fece male al cuore. "É come una vita senza quadri, non trovi? O no?"."
Author: Stephen King
47. "Und jenseits des Wegknies, zwischen Abhang und Bergwand, zwischen den rostig gefärbten Fichten, durch deren Zweige Sonnenlichter fielen, trug es sich zu und begab sich wunderbar, daß Hans Castorp, links von Joachim, die liebliche Kranke überholte, daß er mit männlichen Tritten an ihr vorüberging, und in dem Augenblick, da er sich rechts neben ihr befand, mit einer hutlosen Verneigung und einem mit halber Stimme gesprochenen 'Guten Morgen' sie ehrerbietig (wieso eigentlich: ehrerbietig) begrüßte und Antwort von ihr empfing: mit freundlicher, nicht weiter erstaunter Kopfneigung dankte sie, sagte auch ihrerseits guten Morgen in seiner Sprache, wobei ihre Augen lächelten, - und das alles war etwas anderes, etwas gründlich und beseligend anderes als der Blick auf seinen Stiefel, es war ein Glücksfall und eine Wendung der Dinge zum Guten und Allerbesten, ganz beispielloser Art und fast die Fassungskraft überschreitend; es war die Erlösung."
Author: Thomas Mann
