1. "There must be a law if there is to be liberty. Try to play a piano and you will run into laws as fixed as the decrees of the Medes and Persians. But through those statutes you reach the songs, drudgery leads to delight. The law of Christ brings the liberty of Christ. Keep His statutes, and they become songs. The other side of commandment is conquest. What seems restraint to the outsider means release to you."
Author: Adrian Rogers

4. "I'd been traveling in Asia long enough to know that monkeys there are nothing like their trombone-playing, tambourine-banging cousins I'd seen on TV as a kid. Free-living Asian primates possess a characteristic I found shocking and confusing the first time I saw it: self-respect. If you make the mistake of holding the gaze of a street monkey in India, Nepal, or Malaysia, you'll find you're facing a belligerently intelligent creature whose expression says, with a Robert DeNiro–like scowl, "What the hell are you looking at? You wanna piece of me?" Forget about putting one of these guys in a little red vest."
Author: Christopher Ryan
5. "Wars, wars, wars': reading up on the region I came across one moment when quintessential Englishness had in fact intersected with this darkling plain. In 1906 Winston Churchill, then the minister responsible for British colonies, had been honored by an invitation from Kaiser Wilhelm II to attend the annual maneuvers of the Imperial German Army, held at Breslau. The Kaiser was 'resplendent in the uniform of the White Silesian Cuirassiers' and his massed and regimented infantry...reminded one more of great Atlantic rollers than human formations. Clouds of cavalry, avalanches of field-guns and—at that time a novelty—squadrons of motor-cars (private and military) completed the array. For five hours the immense defilade continued. Yet this was only a twentieth of the armed strength of the regular German Army before mobilization.Strange to find Winston Churchill and Sylvia Plath both choosing the word 'roller,' in both its juggernaut and wavelike declensions, for that scene."
Author: Christopher Hitchens

It wasn't until later that I appreciated it. But coming back I didn't know any TV shows or music, which was even worse."
Author: Dylan Walsh

"Accadeche le affinità d'anima non giunganoai gesti e alle parole ma rimanganoeffuse come un magnetismo. ? raroma accade.Può darsiche sia vera soltanto la lontananza,vero l'oblio, vera la foglia seccapiù del fresco germoglio. Tanto e altropuò darsi o dirsi.Comprendola tua caparbia volontà di essere sempre assenteperché solo così si manifestala tua magia. Innumeri le astuzieche intendo.Insistonel ricercarti nel fuscello e mainell'albero spiegato, mai nel pieno, semprenel vuoto: in quello che anche al trapanoresiste.Era o non erala volontà dei numi che presidianoil tuo lontano focolare, stranimultiformi multanimi animali domestici;fors'era così come mi parevao non era.Ignorose la mia inesistenza appaga il tuo destino,se la tua colma il mio che ne trabocca,se l'innocenza è una colpa oppuresi coglie sulla soglia dei tuoi lari. Di me,di te tutto conosco, tuttoignoro."
Author: Eugenio Montale

Author: Filipe Russo
15. "Every case involving cybercrime that I've been involved in, I've never found a master criminal sitting somewhere in Russia or Hong Kong or Beijing.

Author: Frank Abagnale

17. " longing was for Russia...Not Soviet Russia. But nineteenth-century Russia, the Russia of Dostoevsky's saintly prostitutes and Alyosha; of Tolstoy's Pierre; and Aksionov, the sufferer in "God Sees the Truth But Waits." A country where the characters in books were allowed to ask one another the questions: How must I live to be happy? What is goodness? Why does man suffer? What is to be done?"
Author: Guy Vanderhaeghe

He thought that the author was grieving for Russia, ignorant, savage, and outdistanced by the other nations. But it is not only in Russia that Gogol discovers "dead souls." All men, great and small, seem to him lunatics, lifeless, automata which obediently and mechanically carry out commandments imposed on them from without. They eat, they drink, they sin, they multiply; with stammering tongue they pronounce meaningless words. No trace of free will, no sparkle of understanding, not the slightest wish to awake from their thousand-year sleep."
Author: Lev Shestov

Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
40. "...Grimacing, I plunged a hand into the fouled water to clear the clog, morbid curiosity drawing my youthful eyes to the gray globs of gore floating upon the surface. It was not horror that seized my imagination so much as wonder: sixty years of dreams and desires, hunger and hope, love and longing, blasted away in a single explosive instant, mind and brain. The mind of Erasmus Gray was gone; the remnants of its vessel floated, as light and insubstantial as popcorn, in the water. Which fluffy bit held your ambition, Erasmus Gray? Which speck your pride? Ah, how absurd the primping and preening of our race! Is it not the ultimate arrogance to believe we are more than is contained in our biology? What counterarguments may be put forth, what valid objections raised, to the claim of Ecclesiastes, "Vanity of vanities; all is vanity"?"
Author: Rick Yancey

45. "Pernyataan bahwa sekularisasi mempunyai akarnya di dalam kepercayaan Injil dan merupakan natijah dari ajaran Injil, tidak didukung oleh fakta sejarah. Akar sekularisasi bukan adlam kepercayaan kitab Injil, melainkan di dalam tafsiran manusia Barat terhadap kepercayaan kitab tersebut; ini bukanlah buah dari ajaran Injil, tetapi natijah dari sejarah panjang perseteruan dalam filsafat dan metafisika antara pandangan alam (worldview) manusia Barat yang bersandarkan agama dengan yang rasionalis murni."
Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib Al Attas
46. "Custine described them as ‘automata inconvenienced with a soul': a description true, perhaps, of all bureaucrats fearful for their jobs but truest of all where power is both arbitrary and completely centralised, as it was in Russia."
Author: Theodore Dalrymple
47. "The arts which we now call garden design and landscape design have three separate origins: sacred space, horticultural space and domestic space. Like Homo sapiens, the arts of garden and landscape design probably spread to Europe from West Asia."

49. "Ce era asta? Ce însemna asta? Oare lucrurile puteau sa-?i întinda mâna, a?a, ?i sa te zgâl?âie; lama de cu?it putea sa taie? pumnul sa in?face? Nu exista o siguran?a? Nicio posibilitate sa înve?i pe de rost caile vie?ii? Nicio îndrumare, niciun adapost, totul era miracol, saltul din vârful unui pisc în spa?iu? E posibil ca asta sa fie via?a, chiar pentru oamenii mai în vârsta? Surprinzatoare, nea?teptata, necunoscuta?" O clipa avu impresia ca daca s-ar ridica amândoi, aici, acum, pe paji?te, ?i ar cere o explica?ie, de ce e via?a atât de scurta, de ce e atât de inexplicabila, daca ?i-ar formula întrebarile vehement, a?a cum ar fi îndrepta?ite sa o faca doua fiin?e umane bine o?elite, fa?a de care nimic nu trebuie ascuns, atunci frumuse?ea s-ar desfa?ura; vidul s-ar umple; arabescurile acelea de?arte s-ar împreuna într-o forma; daca ei doi ar striga destul de tare, doamna Ramsay s-ar întoarce. "Doamna Ramsay! striga cu glas tare. Doamna Ramsay!" Lacrimile i se rostogoleau pe obraji."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "Poland, of course, was the key country. I remember Stalin telling me that the plains of Poland were the invasion route of Europe to Russia and always had been, and therefore he had to control Poland."
