1. "I'm in the tree with Granddad Harry. We're twins. We're both missing the same arm, have sores on the same feet; we stroke our beards the same way. "Have you thought about my question?" he asks. "Which one?""The one about why you come here. The time I asked you if you really thought you could take me back with you?"I nod."You know you can't, right?" he says."Look. I have a reason for being here. I was sent. It's important," I say. He strokes his beard. I stroke my beard. We're like mirror mimes. Except my faces is still covered in banana stickers. Except he's really him and I'm not really anyone. "You're not coming here," he says. "You're escaping there. Big difference."
Author: A.S. King Everybody Sees The Ants
2. "What she felt was a lighthearted sort of compassion, almost like laughter. A swish of tender hilarity, getting the better of all her sores and hollows, for the time given."
Author: Alice Munro
3. "Safe care saves lives and saves money. Adverse events like high levels of infection, blood clots or falls in hospital, emergency readmissions and pressure sores cost the NHS billions of pounds every year. There is a serious human cost, too, with patients ending up injured, or even dead. Most are avoidable with the right care."
Author: Andrew Lansley
4. "Quando observamos a quantidade e a variedade de estabelecimentos de ensino, assim como o grande número de alunos e professores, é possível acreditar que a espécie humana dá muita importância à instrução e à verdade. Entretanto, nesse caso, as aparências também enganam. Os professores ensinam para ganhar dinheiro e não se esforçam pela sabedoria, mas pelo crédito que ganham dando a impressão de possuí-la. E os alunos não aprendem para ganhar conhecimento e se instruir, mas para poder tagarelar e ganhar ares de importantes."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
5. "É impossível justificar os excessos do povo ao pegar em armas... Mas é realmente o povo a quem devemos imputar tudo, ou a seus opressores, que os mantiveram por tanto tempo na escravidão? Aquele que escolhe ser servido por escravos, e por escravos mal-tratados deve saber que preserva tanto sua propriedade quanto sua vida através da dominação, diferentemente de quem prefere os serviços de homens livres e bem tratados; e aquele que ceia ao som de lamentos de dor não deve, num momento de insurreição, reclamar que suas filhas foram violentadas e mortas, nem que cortaram a garganta de seus filhos. Quando tais males ocorrem, certamente são mais imputáveis à tirania dos grandes senhores do que à crueldade dos servos."
Author: Arthur Young
6. "That love is reverence, and worship, and glory, and the upward glance. Not a bandage for dirty sores. But they don't know it. Those who speak of love most promiscuously are the ones who've never felt it. They make some sort of feeble stew out of sympathy, compassion, contempt, and general indifference, and they call it love. Once you've felt what it means to love as you and I know it – the total passion for the total height – you're incapable of anything less."
Author: Ayn Rand
7. "While walking back to the highway I stop, choke back a sob, my throat tightens. "I just want to..." Facing the skyline, through all the baby talk, I murmur, "keep the game going." As I stand, frozen in position, an old woman emerges behind a Threepenny Opera poster at a deserted bus stop and she's homeless and begging, hobbling over, her face covered with sores that look like bugs, holding out a shaking red hand. "Oh will you please go away?" I sigh. She tells me to get a haircut."
Author: Bret Easton Ellis
8. "God knoweth best what is needful for us, and all that He does is for our good. If we knew how much He loves us, we should always be ready to receive equally and with indifference from His Hand the sweet and the bitter: all would please that came from Him. The sorest afflictions never appear intolerable, except when we see them in the wrong light."
Author: Brother Lawrence
9. "Muita gente fala que é preciso aprender com o exemplo dos pais e dos professores e coisa e tal. Pode até ser! Não foi o que aconteceu comigo, mas pode ser! Só acho que estão deixando de colocar um fator importante nessa soma de quem nos influencia. Algumas vezes, para um garoto encontrar o caminho certo, é preciso que seu guia, seu modelo inspirador, seja como um reflexo dele mesmo no espelho, alguém com quem consiga se identificar de fato, entende? Refiro-me a se identificar principalmente nessa coisa da idade."
Author: Camilo Gomes Jr.
10. "They came out. They were children. They wore rags and their skin was livid with sores. Their veins were tubes, their hair wire. Sapphique reached out and touched them.'You are the ones who will save us,' he said."
Author: Catherine Fisher
11. "The children looked like remnants of themselves. Spectral. Some were naked to the waist.Many of them had sores on their faces. None had shoes. He could see the structures of them through their skin. The bony residue of their lives."
Author: Colum McCann
12. "Para que un tedio como ése llegue a Icamole se requiere de la complicidad de autor, correctores, editores, impresores, libreros y hasta lectores; eso sin contar a la pareja del escritor, que le dice sí, mi vida, tú sí escribes bien bonito. Delincuencia organizada, dice él"
Author: David Toscana
13. "Elegy on Toy Piano"For Kenneth KochYou don't need a pony to connect you to the unseeable or an airplane to connect you to the sky. Necessary it is to love to live and there are many manuals but in all important ways one is on one's own. You need not cut off your hand. No need to eat a bouquet. Your head becomes a peach pit. Your tongue a honeycomb. Necessary it is to live to love, to charge into the burning tower then charge back out and necessary it is to die. Even for the trees, even for the pony connecting you to what can't be grasped. The injured gazelle falls behind the herd. One last wild enjambment. Because of the sores in his mouth, the great poet struggles with a dumpling. His work has enlarged the world but the world is about to stop including him. He is the tower the world runs out of. When something becomes ash, there's nothing you can do to turn it back. About this, even diamonds do not lie."
Author: Dean Young
14. "Love drips & gathers, but the fallen bloodShall calm her sores..."-Thomas, The Force that through the green fuse drives the flower."
Author: Dylan Thomas
15. "On my tombstone just write, 'The sorest loser that ever lived.'"
Author: Earl Weaver
16. "I locate the ladies' room. Luckily, it's empty, no one to see the vacant-eyed girl, staring in the mirror. Staring at a stranger who doesn't care if she dies. Maybe she wants to die. Who would care if I died? My face is hollow-cheeked, spiced with sores--the places where I stab at bugs. Tiny bugs, almost invisible, but irritating. Usually they come out at night, when I'm lying there, begging for sleep. I've been meaning to tell the manager that the apartment needs to be sprayed. Sprayed. Steam cleaned. Deodorized. My hair looks odd too. It used to be darker. Shinier. Prettier. Can hair lose color when you're only eighteen? What if I go all the way gray? Will Trey still love me? Will anyone? That is, if I fool them all and don't die."
Author: Ellen Hopkins
17. "Cancer sores are one of the most annoying things on the planet.-From Dirty Little Thieves"
Author: Emma Shannon
18. "For he alone, as the only all-gracious Son of an all-gracious Father, in accordance with the purpose of his Father's benevolence, has willingly put on the nature of us who lay prostrate in corruption, and like some excellent physician, who for the sake of saving them that are ill, examines their sufferings, handles their foul sores, and reaps pain for himself from the miseries of another, so us who were not only diseased and afflicted with terrible ulcers and wounds already mortified, but were even lying among the dead, he has saved for himself from the very jaws of death. For none other of those in heaven had such power as without harm to minister to the salvation of so many."
Author: Eusebius
19. "Man, however, is the most courageous animal: thereby has he overcome every animal. With sound of triumph has he overcome every pain; human pain, however, is the sorest pain."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
20. "Las dos nos quedamos ahí paradas en la acera, con las manos a nuestros lados, sin saber qué decir. Oigo el aullido de los niños vecinos en los aspersores. Pienso en mí y Melanie cuando éramos más jóvenes, en la plataforma de clavado en la piscina en México. Siempre nos tomábamos de la mano mientras saltábamos, pero en el momento en que nadábamos de vuelta a la superficie, nos habíamos soltado. No importa cuánto tratábamos, una vez que empezábamos a nadar, siempre nos soltábamos. Pero después de que llegábamos a la superficie, nos gustaba salir de la piscina, trepábamos las escaleras de la plataforma, nos agarrábamos las manos, y lo hacíamos de nuevo.Estamos nadando separadas ahora. Lo entiendo. Tal vez es lo que tienes que hacer para mantenerte flotando. ¿Pero quién sabe? Tal vez un día, salgamos, agarremos nuestras manos y saltemos de nuevo."
Author: Gayle Forman
21. "Vários tipos de categorias profissionais vão ser convidadas a exercer funções policiais cada vez mais precisas: professores, psiquiatras, educadores de todo o tipo, etc. É algo que você anunciava há muito tempo e que se pensava que poderia acontecer: o reforço de todas as estruturas de reclusão. (...) Em contrapartida, o que temos que fazer é instaurar ligações laterais, todo um sistema de redes, de bases populares. E é isto que é difícil. (...) De tal modo que a ação comporta um tipo de informação totalmente diferente das informações dos jornais."
Author: Gilles Deleuze
22. "The sense of a small courageous community barely existing above the desert of trees, hemmed in by a sun too fierce to work under and a darkness filled with evil spirits - love was an arm round the neck, a cramped embrace in the smoke, wealth a little pile of palm-nuts, old age sores and leprosy, religion a few stones in the centre of the village where the dead chiefs lay, a grove of trees where the rice birds, like yellow and green canaries, built their nests, a man in a mask with raffia skirts dancing at burials. This never varied, only their kindness to strangers, the extent of their poverty and the immediacy of their terrors. Their laughter and their happiness seemed the most courageous things in nature"
Author: Graham Greene
23. "There I go again. I want. I don't want. If I could love You, I could love Henry. God was made man. He was Henry with his astigmatism, Richard with his spots, not only Maurice. If I could love a leper's sores, couldn't I love the boringness of Henry? But I'd turn from the leper if he were here, I suppose, as I shut myself away from Henry. I want the dramatic always. I imagine I'm ready for the pain of your nails... Dear God, I'm no use. I'm still the same bitch and fake. Clear me out of the way."
Author: Graham Greene
24. "Hasta ahora has sabido que tu «mundo permitido» sólo era la mitad del mundo y has intentado escamotear la otra mitad, como hacen los curas y los profesores. ¡Pero no lo conseguirás! No lo consigue nadie que haya empezado a pensar."
Author: Hermann Hesse
25. "Yes, the empire is sick, and, what is worse, it is trying to become accustomed to its sores. This is the aim of my explorations: examining the traces of happiness still to be glimpsed, I gauge its short supply. If you want to know how much darkness there is around you, you must sharpen your eyes, peering at the faint lights in the distance."
Author: Italo Calvino
26. "If religions are diseases of the human psyche, as the philosopher Grintholde asserts, then religious wars must be reckoned the resultant sores and cankers infecting the aggregate corpus of the human race. Of all wars, these are the most detestable, since they are waged for no tangible gain, but only to impose a set of arbitrary credos upon another's mind."
Author: Jack Vance
27. "What hurt him most of all, made him feel like a sick child aware of terrible wrongness and yet incapable of explaining it to anyone who might help, was that in spite of what their eyes and ears reported and sometimes their flesh, from bruises, stab wounds, racking coughs, weeping sores-these people believed their way of life was the best in the world, and were prepared to export it at the point of a gun."
Author: John Brunner
28. "This landscape of abomination is in a state of flux. Gilles now sees that the trunks are covered in frightful tumours and goitres. He observes exostosis and ulcers, pustulent sores the size of rocks, tubercular chancres, atrocious caries. It is a vegetal leper house, an aboreal venereal clinic in which, at a turn in the path, there stands a copper beech.And as he stands beneath those crimson leaves, he feels that he is being drenched in a shower of blood; and imagining that a wood nymph lives under the bark, he becomes enraged; he wants to fumble in the flesh of a goddess, massacre the Dryad, violate her in a place unknown to the follies of men."
Author: Joris Karl Huysmans
29. "There was so much unpleasantness in the workaday world. The last thing you ever wanted to do at night was go home and do the dishes. And just the idea that part of the weekend had to be dedicated to getting the oil changed and doing the laundry was enough to make those of us still full from lunch want to lie down in the hallway and force anyone dumb enough to remain committed to walk around us. It might not be so bad. They could drop food down to us, or if that was not possible, crumbs from their PowerBars and bags of microwave popcorn surely would end up within an arm's length sooner or later. The cleaning crews, needing to vacuum, would inevitably turn us on our sides, preventing bedsores, and we would make little toys out of runs in the carpet, which, in moments of extreme regression, we might suck on for comfort."
Author: Joshua Ferris
30. "His skin was gray and riddled with bloody sores. His mouth, which still dripped with Charlie's blood, twisted into a grimace and he let out an unearthly screech. "Scott?!" I screamed as his teeth tore into my skin."
Author: Kristen Middleton
31. "On the Bowery, in the ornate carcass of a formerly grand vaudeville theater, a dance marathon limps along. The contestants, young girls and their fellas, hold one another up, determined to make their mark, to bite back at the dreams sold to them in newspaper advertisements and on the radio. They have sores on their feet but stars in their eyes."
Author: Libba Bray
32. "…like the horse in the old ballads, which Romanticism found in the medieval castle and left in the streets of our own century. The Romanticists rode the poor best until he was so nearly dead that he finally lay down in the gutter, where the realists found him, his flesh eaten away by sores and worms, and, out of pity, carried him away to their books."
Author: Machado De Assis
33. "Me gustaría que algo fuera verdadero. No todo, eso es imposible, pero sí al menos una o dos cosas. Vaya, que el doctor Johnson refutó la teoría de la irrealidad de la materia arreándole una patada a una piedra, pero yo no puedo ir por ahí pateando a mis compañeros de piso, o a los profesores. Además, ¿y si mi pie tampoco es real?. Me parecía que a lo mejor tu lo serías. Bueno, si nos acostábamos. Pero ahora mismo eres totalmente irreal, sólo puedo pensar en todas esas capas de ropa que llevas, abrigos y suéters y esas cosas. A veces me pregunto si habrá más capas debajo, a lo mejor eres toda de lana. Y sería bonito, bueno, digo que sería bonito que no lo fueras."
Author: Margaret Atwood
34. "The city was dark except for the building lights that seemed to appear like sores - like bandaids had been ripped off to expose the city's skin."
Author: Markus Zusak
35. "There is pleasure when a sore is scratched, But to be without sores is more pleasurable still. Just so, there are pleasures in worldly desires, But to be without desires is more pleasurable still."
Author: Nagarjuna
36. "Her world fragmented into dozens of sharp, cutting shards, shedding the salty blood and saltier tears that ringed the bitter cocktail of her despair. She was caterpillar and butterfly, both, caught in a cocoon of raw nerves and open sores; she was insanity, wrapped up in the thin, transient wrappings of a temporary lucidity; and she was afraid, because an innate desire lay in the bottom reaches of her psyche for the very poison that was killing her."
Author: Nenia Campbell
37. "The church must suffer for speaking the truth, for pointing out sin, for uprooting sin. No one wants to have a sore spot touched, and therefore a society with so many sores twitches when someone has the courage to touch it and say: "You have to treat that. You have to get rid of that. Believe in Christ. Be converted."
Author: Oscar A. Romero
38. "The less said about life's sores the better."
Author: Oscar Wilde
39. "25—Muchacho, ¿por qué tienes esta mirada enloquecida?—Debí de beber algún zumo de adormidera para que los ojos se me llenaran de esta locura.—¡Avergüénzate, pues!—Hay prudentes y hay locos, previsores y despreocupados. Hay ojos que sonríen y ojos que lloran, y mis ojos están llenos de locura.—Muchacho, ¿por qué estás tan quieto a la sombra de este árbol?—Mi corazón pesa en mis pies y descanso a la sombra de este árbol.—¡Avergüénzate, pues!—Unos andan por el camino, otros pasean, algunos son libres, otros están encadenados, y mi corazón pesa en mis pies."
Author: Rabindranath Tagore
40. "En noches así siempre se anda uno preguntado cuánto ha olvidado y cuánto de todo esto va a recordar en el futuro. Después los antidepresivos detienen todos esos malditos neurotransmisores y uno ya no se pregunta nada."
Author: Ray Loriga
41. "No weekends for the gods now. Warsflicker, earth licks its open sores,fresh breakage, fresh promotions, chanceassassinations, no advance.Only man thinning out his own kindsounds through the Sabbath noon, the blindswipe of the pruner and his knifebusy about the tree of life...Pity the planet, all joy gonefrom this sweet volcanic cone;peace to our children when they fallin small war on the heels of smallwar - until the end of timeto police th eearth, a ghostorbiting forever lostin our monotonous sublime."
Author: Robert Lowell
42. "There are sores which slowly erode the mind in solitude like a kind of canker."
Author: Sadegh Hedayat
43. "In life there are certain sores that, like a canker, gnaw at the soul in solitude and diminish it."
Author: Sadegh Hedayat
44. "Deambulo por los pasillos del instituto y miro a la gente. Miro a los profesores y me pregunto por qué están aquí. Si les gustará su trabajo. O nosotros. Y me pregunto cómo eran de listos cuando tenían quince años. No con maldad, sino por curiosidad. Es como mirar a los estudiantes y preguntarse a quién le habrán roto el corazón ese día, y cómo puede arreglárselas además con tres exámenes y una redacción. O preguntarse quién fue el que le rompió el corazón. Y preguntarse por qué. Sobre todo porque sé que si fuera a otro instituto, aquel a quien han roto el corazón lo tendría roto por otra persona, así que, ¿por qué nos lo tomamos todo de manera tan personal? Y si yo fuera a otro instituto, nunca habría conocido a Sam ni a Patrick ni a Mary Elizabeth ni a nadie aparte de mi familia."
Author: Stephen Chbosky
45. "Does a machine fall sick with sores and puking?" Well, Eddie thought of saying, there was this bear..."
Author: Stephen King
46. "LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA: WHY IT'S A BAD TITLEI admit that "Love in the time of . . ." is a great title, up to a point. You're reading along, you're happy, it's about love. I like the way the word time comes in - a nice, nice feeling. Then the morbid Cholera appears. I was happy till then. Why not "Love in the Time of the Blue, Blue, Bluebirds"? "Love in the Time of Oozing Sores and Pustules" is probably an earlier title the author used as he was writing in a rat-infested tree house on an old Smith Corona. This writer, whoever he is, could have used a couple of weeks in Pacific Daylight Time."
Author: Steve Martin
47. "It is only in fiction that the protagonist moves in a single minded, one point focus, screening out everything that isn't related to the plot. Real people have to deal with the Myrtles of this world, who have sciatica and cold sores and want to tell you about them"
Author: Susan Wittig Albert
48. "But still. Still bless me anyway. I want more life. I can't help myself. I do. I've lived through such terrible times and there are people who live through much worse. But you see them living anyway. When they're more spirit than body, more sores than skin, when they're burned and in agony, when flies lay eggs in the corners of the eyes of their children - they live. Death usually has to take life away. I don't know if that's just the animal. I don't know if it's not braver to die, but I recognize the habit; the addiction to being alive. So we live past hope. If I can find hope anywhere, that's it, that's the best I can do. It's so much not enough. It's so inadequate. But still bless me anyway. I want more life."
Author: Tony Kushner
49. "Particularly at those moments when we have the sorest need of grasping the sharp realities of life do the threads of thought snap off in the brain."
Author: Victor Hugo
50. "It was a sudden revelation, a tinge like a blush which one tried to check and then, as it spread, one yielded to its expansion, and rushed to the farthest verge and there quivered and felt the world come closer, swollen with some astonishing significance, some pressure of rapture, which split its thin skin and gushed and poured with an extraordinary alleviation over the cracks and sores!"
Author: Virginia Woolf
