1. "We are all mediums for our own basic truths. All we really have in life is the primal force that moves us through our days--our unvarnished, untutored, ever-present, inborn agency."
Author: A.S.A. Harrison

4. "For fear is a primary source of evil. And when the question "Who am I?" recurs and is unanswered, then fear and frustration project a negative attitude. The bewildered soul can answer only: "Since I do not understand 'Who I am,' I only know what I am not." The corollary of this emotional incertitude is snobbism, intolerance and racial hate. The xenophobic individual can only reject and destroy, as the xenophobic nation inevitably makes war."
Author: Carson McCullers

8. "He lifted the slice of cake and bit into it and turned the page. The old musty album with its foxed and crumbling paper seemed to breathe a reek of the vault, turning up one by one these dead faces with their wan and loveless gaze out toward the spinning world, masks of incertitude before the cold glass eye of the camera or recoiling before this celluloid immortality or faces simply staggered into gaga by the sheer velocity of time. Old distaff kin coughed up out of the vortex, thin and cracked and macled and a bit redundant. The landscapes, old backdrops, redundant too, recurring unchanged as if they inhabited another medium than the dry pilgrims shored up on them. Blind moil in the earth's nap cast up in an eyeblink between becoming and done. I am, I am. An artifact of prior races."
Author: Cormac McCarthy
9. "Democracy is only an experiment in government, and it has the obvious disadvantage of merely counting votes instead of weighing them."
Author: Dean Inge
10. "Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life."
Author: Eckhart Tolle
11. "As has repeatedly been stated, the underlying hypothesis, which in a number of cases has been supported by direct experimental evidence, is that each gene controls the production, function, and specificity of a particular enzyme."
Author: Edward Lawrie Tatum
12. "Bor era bello da fare male. Il cuore della ragazza saltò un battito quando il suo profumo le raggiunse le narici e inondò la sua mente come una droga. Un accenno di barba disegnava il contorno appuntito del mento e le labbra si schiusero in un ghigno ferino da animale pronto alla caccia.«Ti voglio attenta e pronta. Ti insegnerò a difenderti. Non sono qui per giocare o rivangare il passato. E ora muoviti, non ho tempo da perdere, anzi, non abbiamo tempo da perdere.» Voltandosi e scendendo le scale tre gradini alla volta aggiunse: «Ti aspetto in strada, sono quello figo sulla moto».Le guance di Asia divennero paonazze, mentre stringeva i pugni con intensità fino a sentire il sudore delle mani appiccicarle la pelle. Con un'espressione degna di un drago sputa fuoco, Asia rimase a guardare Bor che usciva di casa. Vomitò un urlo a dir poco agghiacciante che miscelava rabbia e frustrazione."
Author: Eilan Moon
13. "Riassumendo vorrei in realtà dire: la barbarie nazista fa sorgere in noi un'identica barbarie che procederebbe con gli stessi metodi, se noi avessimo la possibilità di agire oggi come vorremmo. Dobbiamo respingere interiormente questa inciviltà, non possiamo coltivare in noi quell'odio perché altrimenti il mondo non uscirà di un solo passo dalla melma."
Author: Etty Hillesum
14. "He asked, looking at her dark-rimmed eyes, "You do not sleep?"She shivered. "No. I do not want to sleep any more. I sleep too much already. It is so cold, where Quincy sends me in my sleep. Deep into the house, farther in, not into the house we see. It is as if that house were a face, and when you see a face you can't see the brain or the thoughts of the person behind it. And it is so strange - the house inside the house."********"How is it strange - this that you call the house inside the house?"She said vaguely, her eyes growing glassy, "Strange. Shapes change, and sizes. The rooms are different: bigger and blacker and longer and the shadows are full of things. Creatures - or sometimes the rooms get smaller, fewer, and the furnishings change and change, like the scenes in a kaleidoscope, and I see the people in the portraits walking about in them."
Author: Evangeline Walton
15. "Meus músculos se aquecem através duma dor enrijecedora retraindo-se; travados e trancafiados, contraídos e contrariados; paredões repletos de orifícios e saliências por onde escorre, goteja e se empoça o morno das minhas lágrimas."
Author: Filipe Russo
16. "Fiziologii ar trebui sa mai chibzuiasca înainte de a afirma ca in¬stinctul primordial al unei fiinte organice este instinctul de conser¬vare. Fiinta vie nazuieste înainte de toate sa dea curs liber puterii sale -viata, ea însasi, este voita de putere -: instinctul de con¬servare fiind doar o consecinta indirecta, una dintre cele mai frec¬vente ale ei. - Pe scurt, aici precum si în alta parte, atentie fata de principiile teleologice inutile! – cum este acela al instinctului de conservare (pe care îl datoram inconsecventei lui Spinoza). În acest fel se ordoneaza metoda ce trebuie sa fie, în esenta, economie de principii."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
17. "An abolitionist is, as I have developed that notion, one who (1) maintains that we cannot justify animal use, however "humane" it may be; (2) rejects welfare campaigns that seek more "humane" exploitation, or single-issue campaigns that seek to portray one form of animal exploitation as morally worse than other forms of animal exploitation (e.g., a campaign that seeks to distinguish fur from wool or leather); and (3) regards veganism, or the complete rejection of the consumption or use of any animal products, as a moral baseline. An abolitionist regards creative, nonviolent vegan education as the primary form of activism, because she understands that the paradigm will not shift until we address demand and educate people to stop thinking of animals as things we eat, wear, or use as our resources."
Author: Gary L. Francione
18. "I wanted to confront her, to make her see the folly of her religion, to change her diet, to help her spend less on makeup and other nonessentials, to make her worship every biological moment she was offered instead of some badly punctured deity. I also wanted to kiss her for some reason, feel the life pulsing in those big Catholic lips, remind myself of the primacy of the living animal, of my time amongst the Romans."
Author: Gary Shteyngart
19. "Years steal fire from the mind as vigor from the limb; and life's enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim."
Author: George Gordon Byron
20. "I accept what I am, but I did not choose it. I experience human life in the only way I can, vicariously. I am a voracious consumer of books, tapes, holoplays, fictions and drama and histories of all sorts. I have experimented with dreamdust."
Author: George R.R. Martin
21. "Around 80% of Liberians are unemployed and only half of all children go to primary school. Just one in 20 go on to secondary school. Young children are on the streets instead of in the classrooms. We are not giving them the opportunity to learn and they will struggle to get jobs when they grow up."
Author: George Weah
22. "Liberty is the possibility of doubting, the possibility of making a mistake, the possibility of searching and experimenting, the possibility of saying No to any authority - literary, artistic, philosophic, religious, social and even political."
Author: Ignazio Silone
23. "Hepimiz bazen birbirleriyle o kadar yakinlasiriz ki dostlugumuzu ya da kardesligimizi hiçbir sey engellemiyormus gibi görünür, bizi ayiran küçücük bir köprü vardir, hepsi o kadar. Ama tam sen bu köprüye adim atacakken sana su soruyu sorsam: Bu köprüyü geçip bana gelir misin? Iste o anda artik bunu istemeyiverirsin; sorumu tekrarlasam öylece suskun kalirsin. O andan itibaren aramiza daglar ve azgin nehirler girer; bizi ayiran ve birbirimize yabancilastiran duvarlar örülüverir önümüzde ve bir araya gelmek istesek de artik yapamayiz. Ama o küçücük köprüyü düsündügünde, sözcüklere sigmayacak kadar büyüyüverir gözünde; yutkunur ve sasar kalirsin."
Author: Irvin D. Yalom
24. "The Prime of LifeIt was, in truth, an eager youthWho halted me one day.He gazed in bliss at me, and thisIs what he had to say;"Why, mazel tov, it's Asimov,A blessing on your head!For many a year, I've lived in fearThat you were long since dead.Or if alive, one fifty-fiveCold years had passed you by,And left you weak, with poor physique,Thin hair and rheumy eye.For sure enough, I've read your stuffSince I was but a ladAnd couldn't spell or hardly tellThe good yarns from the bad.My father, too, was reading youBefore he met my Ma.For you he yearned, once he had learnedAbout you from his Pa.Since time began, you wondrous man,My ancestors did loveThat s.f. dean and writing machineThe aged Asimov."I'd had my fill. I said, "Be still!I've kept my old-time spark.My step is light, my eye is bright,My hair is thick and dark."His smile, in brief, spelled disbelief,So this is what I did;I scowled, you know, and with one blow,I killed that rotten kid."
Author: Isaac Asimov
25. "—Está bien, que sea en mi casa, sígame. —Con gusto. —Rick sonrió en señal de complacencia y se dirigió a su camioneta, esperó que ella saliera primero y ambos se dirigieron hacia su "cita inconclusa" En el fondo, él comenzaba a sentir satisfacción."
Author: Itxa Bustillo

Author: J.D. Salinger
27. "A 43 anni compiuti, William Stoner apprese quello che altri,..., avevano imparato prima: che la persona che amiamo da subito non è quella che amiamo per davvero e che l'amore non è una fine ma un processo attraverso il quale una persona tenta di conoscerne un'altra"
Author: John Williams
28. "I believe in the magic of preparation. You can make just about any foods taste wonderful by adding herbs and spices. Experiment with garlic, cilantro, basil and other fresh herbs on vegetables to make them taste great."
Author: Jorge Cruise
29. "Religion, in refusing to degrade you, has placed in doubt the crime imputed to you; the government, in surrounding your case with mystery and shadow, gives reason for belief in some error, committed in fatal moments; and all the Philippines, in venerating your memory and calling you martyrs, in no way acknowledges your guilt."
Author: José Rizal
30. "There was much talk about why the prime minister had brought back such a troublesome and unpredictable colleague, and the consensus was that he preferred to have Churchill inside the tent spitting out."
Author: Ken Follett
31. "Per tutta la vita sono vissuta come un pesce in un acquario, dentro la frontiera rassicurante di una vasca di vetro, dietro una barriera tanto impenetrabile quanto trasparente. Sono libera di osservare il mondo che balugina all'esterno e di immaginare di farne parte, se mi fa piacere. Ma da sempre vivo come una reclusa, accerchiata dai rigidi, inflessibili confini dell'esistenza che mio padre ha costruito per me, dapprima coscientemente, quando ero una ragazza, e poi involontariamente ora che si va spegnendo di giorno in giorno. Penso di essermi abituata alla vasca di vetro e sono terrorizzata all'idea che, quando si romperà, quando sarò sola, precipiterò nell'ignoto che mi si spalancherà davanti, impotente, sperduta, annaspando nel tentativo di respirare."
Author: Khaled Hosseini

34. "Her alanda asil yenilgi unutmaktir, özellikle de sizi neyin gebertmis oldugunu unutmak, insanlarin ne derece hirt olduklarini anlayamadan gebermektir. Bizler, mezarin önüne geldigimizde, bosuna saklabanlik yapmaya kalkismamaliyiz, öte yandan, unutmamaliyiz da, tek sözcügünü bile degistirmeden her seyi anlatmaliyiz, insanlarda gördügümüz ne kadar kokusmusluk varsa, hepsini, sonra da yerimizi siradakine birakip, uslu uslu inmeliyiz deligin içine. Tüm bir yasami doldurmaya yetecek bir ugrastir bu."
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
35. "Smell was our first sense. It is even possible that being able to smell was the stimulus that took a primitive fish and turned a small lump of olfactory tissue on its nerve cord into a brain. We think because we smelled."
Author: Lyall Watson
36. "The demon leaned in, the brim of his hat close enough to touch. "You think we are so different, but we are the same, Hunter. We are the raging hosts and the masters of the dead, and when we command men to follow, they obey. And so it is the men of the earth who kill and maim, like a flock of birds copper red with blood, while we dance upon this world as great and mighty shadows. But we are merely the sword, Hunter, and only the sword. We must have a heart to wield us. Those are the terms, and we keep our bargains."
Author: Marjorie M. Liu

O que ele quer dizer é quem mata em nome da justiça não é um criminoso porque isso Não é crime, deu para entender?"
Author: Patrícia Melo
42. "By living in a spirit of forgiveness we not only uphold the core value of citizenship but also find the path to social membership that we need. Happiness does not come from the pursuit of pleasure, nor is it guaranteed by freedom, it comes from sacrifice. That is the message of the christian religion and it is the message that is conveyed by all the memorable works of our culture. It is the message that has been lost in the noise of repudiation, but which it seems to me can be heard once again if we devote our energies to retrieving it. And in the christian tradition the primary act of sacrifice is forgiveness. The one who forgives sacrifices vengeance and renounces thereby a part of himself for the sake of another."
Author: Roger Scruton

Author: Thomas Kean Jr.
47. "Nothing he had brought to it of his nearest comparison, Raby with its thatch'd and benevolent romance of serfdom, had at all prepar'd him for the iron Criminality of the Cape,-- the publick Executions and Whippings, the open'd flesh, the welling blood, the beefy contented faces of those whites.... Yet is Dixon certain, as certain as the lightness he feels now, lightness premonitory of Flying, that far worse happen'd here, to these poor People, as the blood flew and the Children cried,-- that at the end no one understood what they said as they died."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
48. "I think that's still the most primal fear of all humans: to be eaten."
Author: Victor Salva
49. "Cine poate ?ti ce suntem, ce sim?im? Cine poate ?ti, chiar în momentul percep?iei intime" daca aceasta era cunoa?terea?"Nu-i a?a ca ratam lucrurile de îndata ce încercam sa le exprimam?"(...)Nu spunem mai mult prin tacere? Cel pu?in momentul acela parea de o extraordinara rodnicie. Scobise o gropi?a în nisip ?i apoi o acoperise, în semn ca îngropase acolo perfec?iunea acelei clipe. Era ca un strop de argint în care-?i scufundai ?i iluminai întunecimea trecutului."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "This has been the century of strangers, brown, yellow and white. This has been the century of the great immigrant experiment. It is only this late in the day that you can walk into a playground and find Isaac Leung by the fish pond, Danny Rahman in the football cage, Quang O'Rourke bouncing a basketball, and Irie Jones humming a tune. Children with first and last names on a direct collision course. Names that secrete within them mass exodus, cramped boats and planes, cold arrivals, medical checks. It is only this late in the day, and possibly only in Willesden, that you can find best friends Sita and Sharon, constantly mistaken for each other because Sita is white (her mother liked the name) and Sharon is Pakistani (her mother thought it best — less trouble)."
