1. "There is no limit of degradation to which power cannot bring anyone even with the loftiest principles. We would hope that being unprepared for power, they would be ineffective.

Author: Albert Meltzer

8. "Onde é que dói na minha vida,para que eu me sinta tão mal?quem foi que me deixou feridade ferimento tão mortal?Eu parei diante da paisagem:e levava uma flor na mão.Eu parei diante da paisagemprocurando um nome de imagempara dar à minha canção.Nunca existiu sonho tão purocomo o da minha timidez.Nunca existiu sonho tão puro,nem também destino tão durocomo o que para mim se fez.Estou caída num vale aberto,entre serras que não têm fim.Estou caída num vale aberto:nunca ninguém passará perto,nem terá notícias de mim.Eu sinto que não tarda a morte,e só há por mim esta flor;eu sinto que não tarda a mortee não sei como é que suportetanta solidão sem pavor.E sofro mais ouvindo um rioque ao longe canta pelo chão,que deve ser límpido e frio,mas sem dó nem recordação,como a voz cujo murmúriomorrerá com o meu coração..."

Ils méditent.Sans remuer ils se tiendrontJusqu'à l'heure mélancoliqueOù, poussant le soleil oblique,Les ténèbres s'établiront.Leur attitude au sage enseigneQu'il faut en ce monde qu'il craigneLe tumulte et le mouvement,L'homme ivre d'une ombre qui passePorte toujours le châtimentD'avoir voulu changer de place."
Author: Charles Baudelaire

11. "Quiero esperar en silencio la séptima ola. Si, aquí cuentan la historia indómita de la séptima ola. Las primeras seis son previsibles y equilibradas. Se condicionan unas a otras, no deparan sorpresas. Mantienen la continuidad. Pero, !cuidado con la séptima ola¡ La séptima es imprevisible. Durante mucho tiempo pasa inadvertida, participa en el monótono proceso, se adapta a sus predecesoras. Pero a veces estalla. Siempre ella, siempre la séptima. Porque es despreocupada, inocente, rebelde, barre con todo, lo cambia todo. Para ella no existe el antes, solo el ahora. Y después todo es distinto. ¿Mejor o peor? Eso solo pueden decirlo quienes estuvieron arrastrados por ella, quienes tuvieron el coraje de enfrentarla, de dejarse cautivar..."
Author: Daniel Glattauer
12. "Não sei como explicar, mas certamente que tu e todos têm a noção de que existe, ou deveria existir, um outro eu para além de nós próprios. Para que serviria eu ter sido criada, se apenas me resumisse a isto? Os meus grandes desgostos neste mundo, foram os desgostos de Heathcliff, e eu acompanhei e senti cada um deles desde o início; é ele que me mantém viva. Se tudo o mais perecesse e ele ficasse, eu continuaria, mesmo assim, a existir; e, se tudo o mais ficasse e ele fosse aniquilado, o universo se tornaria, para mim, uma vastidão desconhecida, a que eu não teria a sensação de pertencer."
Author: Emily Brontë

Alreadymy body slips down in the chair:I recline on my side,offering peeled grapes.I can taste his tonguein my mouthwhenever he speaks.I suspect he lies.But my body oils itself loose.When he gets up to fix a drinkmy legs like derrickshoist me off the seat.I am thirsty, it seams.Already I see the seductionfar off in the distancelike a large treedwarfed by a risein the road.I put away objectionsas quietly as quilts.Already I explain to myselfhow marriages are broken--accidentally, like arms or legs."
Author: Enid Shomer
14. "Er setzte seine finsterste Miene auf. Böse, sagte er sich, böse, aber hoch intelligent. Und entschlossen, vergiss die Entschlossenheit nicht. [...] Er öffnete die Tür.»Guten Abend«, grüßte er, ganz der perfekte Gastgeber, wenn auch ein hinterhältiger, böser, intelligenter und entschlossener.Root stand, die leeren Hände demonstrativ ausgestreckt, vor der Tür. Die universale Geste für: Sieh her, ich trage keine große, mörderische Waffe."
Author: Eoin Colfer

17. "Das Kind redet weiter. Beim Reden bleibt etwas auf der Zunge liegen. Das Kind denkt sich, es kann nur die Wahrheit sein, die sich auf die Zunge liegt wie ein Kirschkern, der nicht in den Hals fallen will. Solange die Stimme beim Reden ins Ohr steigt, wartet sie auf die Wahrheit. Aber gleich nach dem Schweigen, denkt sich das Kind, ist alles gelogen, weil die Wahrheit in den Hals gefallen ist."

19. "Wie es im Zeitalter der Könige naiv gewesen wäre zu glauben, dass der erstgeborene Königssohn der zum Herrschen Geeignetste wäre, so ist es in unserer zeit naiv zu glauben, dass der demokratisch gewählte Machthaber der Geeignetste sein wird. Die Nachfolgeregelung ist kein Rezept für die Bestimmung des besten Machthabers, sie ist ein Rezept für die Legitimierung dieser oder jener Person und somit für die Vermeidung von Bürgerkriegen. Die Wählerschaft - der Demos - glaubt, es sei ihre Aufgabe, den Besten auszuwählen, doch in Wahrheit ist ihre Aufgabe viel schlichter: einen Mann zu salben [...], gleichgültig welchen."
Author: J.M. Coetzee

Might it not be possible to have Satsuko's face and figure carved on my tombstone in the manner of such a Bodhisattva, to use her as the secret model for a Kannon or Seishi? After all, I have no religious beliefs, any sort of faith will do for me; my only conceivable divinity is Satsuko. Nothing could be better than to lie buried under her image."
Author: Jun'ichirō Tanizaki

Author: Kahlil Gibran
26. "He kissed her slowly, deeply, seized by a slew of contrasting emotions. It was wrong to kiss her, he registered faintly in the back of his mind, but it felt more right than anything else he had done since arriving in Alvair. A fire awakened somewhere within him as their lips met, the heat of it at odds with the chill of the Amulet clutched between their hands."
Author: Katie Lynn Johnson

Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Author: Pete Domenici

Author: Pierre Auguste Renoir
32. "I kind of hate Nick right now, too, but there's someone else higher on my list, someone I hate more than Saddam Hussein and any asshole named Bush combined, hate more than that fuckhead who canceled 'My So-Called Life' and left me with a too-small boxed DVD set that does not answer the questions whether Angela and Jordan Catalano did it, or if Patty and Graham got a divorce, or if there really was something to all that lesbian subtext between Rayanne and Sharon."
Author: Rachel Cohn
33. "O tempo não é uma medida. Um ano não conta, dez anos não representam nada. Ser artista não significa contar, é crescer como a árvore que não apressa a sua seiva e resiste, serena, aos grandes ventos da primavera, sem temer que o verão possa não vir. O verão há de vir. Mas só vem para aqueles que sabem esperar, tão sossegados como se tivessem na frente a eternidade."

37. "Berge sollte man mit möglichst wenig Anstrengung und ohne Ehrgeiz ersteigen. Unsere eigene Natur sollte das Tempo bestimmen. Wenn man unruhig wird, geht man schneller. Wenn man zu keuchen anfängt, geht man langsamer. Man steigt auf den Berg in einem Zustand, in dem sich Rastlosigkeit und Erschöpfung die Waage halten. Dann, wenn man nicht mehr in Gedanken vorauseilt, ist jeder Schritt nicht mehr bloß ein Mittel zum Zweck, sondern ein einmaliges Ereignis. Dieses Blatt ist gezähnt. Dieser Felsen scheint locker. Von dieser Stelle aus ist der Schnee nicht mehr so gut zu sehen, obwohl man ihm schon näher ist. Das sind Dinge, die man ohnehin wahrnehmen sollte. Nur auf irgendein zukünftiges Ziel hin zu leben ist seicht. Die Flanken des Berges sind es, auf denen Leben gedeiht, nicht der Gipfel. Hier wächst etwas."
Author: Robert M. Pirsig

Aber jeder Schatten ist im letzten doch auch Kind des Lichts und nur wer Helles und Dunkles Krieg und Frieden Aufstieg und Niedergang erfahren nur der hat wahrhaft gelebt."
Author: Stefan Zweig

Happiness always has an object, you're happy because of something, it's a condition whose existence depends on external things. Joy, on the other hand, has no object. It seizes you for no apparent reason, it's like the sun, its burning is fueled by its own heart."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
