13. "Vroeger blikte ik in een chaotische toekomst, omdat ik het moment, dat vlak voor me lag, niet wilde beleven. (...) Ik had soms het zekere, doch zeer vage gevoel, dat ik "iets zou kunnen worden" in de toekomst, iets "geweldigs" zou kunnen doen en dan af en toe weer die chaotische angst dat ik "toch wel naar de bliksem zou gaan". Ik begin te begrijpen hoe dat komt. Ik weigerde de vlak voor me liggende taken te doen. Ik weigerde van trede tot trede voort te klimmen voor die toekomst. (...)Vroeger leefde ik altijd in een voorbereidend stadium, ik had het gevoel dat alles wat ik deed toch niet het "echte" was, maar voorbereiding tot iets anders, iets "groots", iets echts. Maar dat is nu volkomen van me afgevallen. Nu, vandaag, deze minuut leef ik en leef ik volop en is het leven waard geleefd te worden en wanneer ik zou weten, dat ik morgen zou sterven, dan zou ik zeggen: ik vind het heel jammer, maar het is goed geweest, zoals het geweest is."

Plus, if you don't, I'll break your fucking legs.Fair enough.Then let's do this.Hell yeah."

17. "I can't believe it's you. Wait, why does my chart say Randy Johnson?" Reid chuckled at the ridiculous name he used for anonymity. "It's an alias." Wanting to erase the pained look from whatever had happened before he arrived, he gave her a wicked smile and added, "And sometimes a state of being."

30. "Szepcze "zegnaj", lecz komu to przekazac, nie wiem,Bo przeciez nie rozmawiam z martwa mara czy cieniem.On gdyby chcial przytaknac, chocby glowe sklonic,W odpowiedzi nie poda nawet pustej dloni.Ale w tym sie juz nowy zawiera element,bo przewage nie glos ma, ale usta nieme,jak u ryby miarowo otwierane dlawydobycia w wydechu bezdzwiecznego "la".Akwarium, jak wiadomo, jest takim zaciszem,gdzie sie nigdy piosenek i placzu nie slyszy,gdzie reka zawieszona i znieruchomialazmienia wlasnosci - wkrótce pletwa by sie stala.A wiec do ciebie - która umialas pokonacte mokre, wyciagniete ku tobie ramionanereid z wód rodzimych - ja unoszac brewpisze o tym, co moze w zylach zmrozic krew,ze kondensat cierpienia i bólu przekroczylpowierzchnie mózgu.

34. "Er bestaat geen mogelijkheid om na te gaan welke beslissing beter is, want er is geen vergelijking. Wij maken alles zomaar voor het eerst en onvoorbereid mee, net als een acteur die voor de vuist een stuk speelt. Maar wat kan het leven waard zijn, als de eerste repetitie voor het leven al het leven zelf is? Het leven lijkt daarom altijd op een schets. Hoewel het woord 'schets' evenmin juist is, want een schets is altijd een ontwerp voor iets, de voorbereiding voor een schilderij, terwijl de schets van ons leven een schets is voor niets, het ontwerp zonder een schilderij."
Author: Milan Kundera
35. "See ühiskond vajab Wolfgang Priklopili suguseid kurjategijaid, et anda nägu sellele kurjale, mis temas elab, ja see endast ise eraldada. Ta vaja pilte keldrikongidest, selleks et ei peaks nägema paljusid kortereid ja aedu, kus vägivald näitab oma kodanlikku palet. Ta kasutab minusuguseid kõmuliste juhtumite ohvreid selleks, et vabastada end vastututusest igapäevaseste kuritegude paljude nimetute ohvrite ees, keda ei aidata - isegi siis, kui nad abi paluvad."
Author: Natascha Kampusch

37. "Here, then, is how we can get sinners to cry out, according to Paris Reidhead: If I had my way, I would declare a moratorium on public preaching of "the plan of salvation" in America for one to two years. Then I would call on everyone who has use of the airwaves and the pulpits to preach the holiness of God, the righteousness of God, and the Law of God, until sinners would cry out, "What must we do to be saved?" Then I would take them off in a corner and whisper the gospel to them. Don't use John 3:16. Such drastic action is needed because we have gospel-hardened a generation of sinners by telling them how to be saved before they have any understanding why they need to be saved."
Author: Ray Comfort

Of course I can do latitude and longitude!"

41. "In Darwins post-platonische werelds is de variatie de fundamentele werkelijkheid en veranderen berekende gemiddelden in abstracties. We blijven echter de voorkeur geven aan het oudere en tegengestelde standpunt: we zien variatie nog steeds als een massa onlogische toevalligheden, die hoofdzakelijk van waarde is omdat zo'n spreiding te gebruiken is voor de berekening van een gemiddelde, hetgeen we dan beschouwen als iets wat een essentie nog het best benadert."
Author: Stephen Jay Gould
42. "Where's Lori?" he asked when he saw the nurse wasn't there. "She's not avoiding me, is she?"His grandmother slipped off her glasses, put down her book and stared at him.

Can you survive on your own until then, or should I call 9-1-1 for emergency assistance?"

Author: Tammara Webber

Author: Tammara Webber

Men det største hun noen gang gjorde, sa Dadda og ignorerte avbrytelsen, var å få et helt slott til å sove i hundre år til... Hun nølte. Kan ikke huske det. Dreide det seg om rosebusker, eller var det spinnerokker med i det der? Jeg tror det var en prinsesse som måtte fingre på... nei, det var en prins. Sånn var det. Fingre på en prins? sa Magrotte ille til mote. Nei... han måtte kysse henne."
Author: Terry Pratchett
