1. "Perché è così che ti frega, la vita. Ti piglia quando hai ancora l'anima addormentata e ti semina dentro un'imagine, o un odore, o un suono che poi non te lo togli più. E quella lì era la felicità. Lo sopri dopo, quando è roppo tardi. E già sei, per sempre, un esule: a migliaia di chilometri da quell'immagine, da quel suono, da quell'odore. Alla deriva."
Author: Alessandro Baricco
2. "-Ogni tanto mi chiedo che cosa stiamo aspettando?-Che sia troppo tardi."
Author: Alessandro Baricco
3. "Poi non è che la vita vada come tu te la immagini. Fa la sua strada. E tu la tua. E non sono la stessa strada. Così, io non è che volevo essere felice, questo no. Volevo salvarmi, ecco: salvarmi. Ma ho capito tardi da che parte bisognava andare: dalla parte dei desideri. Uno si aspetta che siano altre cose a salvare la gente: il dovere, l'onestà, essere buoni, essere giusti. No.Sono i desideri che salvano. Sono l'unica cosa vera. Tu stai con loro, e ti salverai. Però troppo tardi l'ho capito. Se le dai tempo, alla vita, lei si rigira in un modo strano, inesorabile: e tu ti accorgi che a quel punto non puoi desiderare qualcosa senza farti del male. È lì che salta tutto, non c'è verso di scappare, più ti agiti più si ingarbuglia la rete, più ti ribelli più ti ferisci. Non se ne esce. Quando era troppo tardi, io ho iniziato a desiderare. Con tutta la forza che avevo. Mi sono fatto tanto di quel male che tu non te lo puoi nemmeno immaginare."
Author: Alessandro Baricco
4. "Maxwell Arbus was the reason Saul lost an eye?" "Yes," Millie answers stiffly. "But that was a long time ago. Saul has moved on. So have I." Whatever checks I'd held on my emotions shatter. "Moved on?!" Whirling around, I storm at Millie, waving my arms like a maniacal marionette. "I don't care if it was so long ago we could only get with a TARDIS! There is no moving on because it's happening right now!"
Author: Andrea Cremer
5. "We recently had an extension built, to house a closet. It's like the Tardis - I go in there and never come out."
Author: Catherine Zeta Jones
6. "At least I could relate to Rose's sense of adventure and Harriet Jones' wacky determination and ingrained sense of responsibility. I can stomach the Tardis when my heroines are in place."
Author: Chila Woychik
7. "Using music to promote hate seems to be the bastardisation of music to me."
Author: Chris Lowe
8. "Just the minute another person is drawn into some one's life, there begin to arise undreamed-of complexities, and from such a simple beginning as sexual desire we find built up such alarming yet familiar phenomena as fetes, divertissements, telephone conversations, arrangements, plans, sacrifices, train arrivals, meetings, appointments, tardiness, delays, marriages, dinners, small pets and animals, calumny, children, music lessons, yellow shades for the windows, evasions, lethargy, cigarettes, candies, repetition of stories and anecdotes, infidelity, ineptitude, incompatibility, bronchial trouble, and many others, all of which are entirely foreign to the original urge and way off the subject."
Author: E.B. White
9. "A lucidez em alguns, é um dado primordial, um privilégio, e mesmo um dom. Não têm necessidade de adquiri-la, de procurá-la: são predestinados a ela. Todas as experiências contribuem para torná-los transparentes diante de si mesmos. Se vivem numa crise permanente, a aceitam com naturalidade: ela é imanente à sua existência. Em outros, a lucidez é um resultado tardio, o fruto de um acidente, de uma rachadura interior que ocorre em dado momento. Ao que tudo indica, viver é desmoronar progressivamente."
Author: Emil Cioran
10. "Quanto ai cristiani, sarebbe stato proprio lo scossone della sconfitta nel referendum sul divorzio a costituire il principio del loro risveglio; più tardi Iddio avrebbe fatto alla sua chiesa l'immenso dono del papa polacco: un papa di nuovo 'pietra' e 'roccia' finalmente"
Author: Eugenio Corti
11. "Ho scoperto cosa c'è di peggio di un bacio negato quando lo desideri: un bacio ricevuto quando ormai è troppo tardi"."
Author: Fabio Volo
12. "O comandante olhou Fermina Darza e viu em suas pestanas os primeiros lampejos de um orvalho de inverno. Depois olhou Florentino Ariza, seu domínio invencível, e se assustou com a suspeita tardia de que é a vida, mais que a morte, a que não tem limites"
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
13. "To avoid detection, the Doctor had attached a device called Randomiser to his TARDIS, his plan being to outfox the Black Guardian by popping up randomly all over the place. Neither Romana nor K-9 had the heart to tell the Doctor that that was pretty much what he did anyway."
Author: Gareth Roberts
14. "One of Romana's particularly important discoveries during this period had been the extent of the Doctor's fascination for a planet in the Mutter's Spiral galaxy — Sol 3, known to its inhabitants as Earth. [...] The Doctor had spent so much time there, and so much time in the company of its people, that it was hard to interact with him on any meaningful level without at very least a working knowledge of the planet's history, social structure and idioms.And so one afternoon she plucked a computer tablet from the TARDIS library and read up on it all, history and culture, from the birth of the planet from drifting clouds of cosmic dust, through the Stone Age, the Trojan War, Homer, Shakespeare, the Freat Break-Out into Space, right up to its eventual immolation in the 57th segment of time. ('Been there, seen it, done it, wrote most of that, caused that,' the Doctor kept saying over her shoulder, irritatingly.)"
Author: Gareth Roberts
15. "They emerged from under the bridge and Romana gazed at another grand college building beyond the trees that lined the riverbank. 'I love spring,' she said. 'All the leaves, the colours...''It's October,' said the Doctor, a little shamefaced.Romana blinked in surprise. 'I thought you said we'd be arriving in May Week?''I did,' said the Doctor. 'May Week in June.''I'm confused,' said Romana.'So was the TARDIS,' admitted the Doctor."
Author: Gareth Roberts
16. "So when will this society, bastardised by every debauchery of mind, body andsoul, finally come to an end?"
Author: Gustave Flaubert
17. "The way individuals live together. The truth of each individual is only the truth of his own narrow perspective. The entirety of mankind and of human qualities is always seen through a prisim, where its colours are broken. Observation is so utterly different from experinnce; there is no hope of fusing their contardictions, as the I and the not-I have been foes from the world's beginning."
Author: Jakob Wassermann
18. "I've lost the TARDIS as well.'I [Amy] was outraged. Considering my husband was dying and we were stranded in the past, the Doctor seemed fairly calm about things. 'Someone's nicked it!''Not so much, no.' The Doctor looked awkward. 'There's a mechanism... thingy. If the TARDIS senses a threat it removes itself from the scene. First sign of danger, it goes and hides behind the curtains.''Whose genius idea was that?'The Doctor swallowed, embarrassed. He claims to be the last of the most advanced race in the universe. Sometimes, I'm just not convinced."
Author: James Goss
19. "Maria looked at the TARDIS... 'Is that really your carriage?' She asked. 'It is not very good, monsieur. It has no wheels.''It doesn't need them,' laughed Amy. 'It's an English carriage. They don't have wheels.'Does Monsieur Rory push it?''When necessary,' laughed Amy."
Author: James Goss
20. "Non posso più ascoltare tacendo. Devo parlarvi con i mezzi che ho a disposizione. Voi mi trafiggete l'anima.Io sono tra l'agonia e la speranza. Non ditemi che è troppo tardi, che questo prezioso sentimento è svanito per sempre. Vi offro di nuovo il mio cuore, vi appartiene ancor più di quando otto anni e mezzo fa voi quasi me lo spezzaste. Non dite per carità che l'uomo dimentica più della donna, che il suo amore è più rapido a morire. Non ho mai amato nessuna all'infuori di voi. Posso essere stato ingiusto, forse debole e offeso, ma incostante mai. Solo voi mi avete condotto a Bath. Penso e faccio progetti solo per voi. Non ve ne siete accorta? Possibile che non indoviniate i miei desideri? Non avrei atteso neanche questi dieci giorni se avessi conosciuto i vostri sentimenti. Devo andare senza conoscere il mio destino ma tornerò qui o vi seguirò non appena possibile. Una parola, uno sguardo saranno sufficienti a farmi entrare in casa di vostro padre questa sera o mai più."
Author: Jane Austen
21. "Permolto tempo sono vissuto ignorando totalmente la storia della mia famiglia. Tutto era perfetto o quasi nel migliore dei mondi. Ai bambini non si racconta cos'è successo prima del loro arrivo. Prima sono troppo piccoli per capire, poi sono troppo grandi per ascoltare, poi non hanno più tempo e dopo è troppo tardi. Così è la vita di famiglia. Si vive fianco a fianco come se ci si conoscesse, ma si ignora tutto l'uno dell'altro."
Author: Jean Michel Guenassia
22. "It's not an Israeli model, it's a TSA, screwed-up model. It should actually be the person who's looking at the ticket and talking to the individual. Instead, they've hired people to stand around and observe, which is a bastardization of what should be done."
Author: John Mica
23. "Ma, quando andavo ad allenarmi, passavo per le strade correndo e nessuno poteva immaginare il mondo di parole che portavo con me. Correre è stare assolutamente soli. Lo so da sempre: nella solitudine mi è impossibile sfuggire a me stesso. Subito dopo i primi passi intorno a me si innalzano mura nere. inoffensivo, il mondo si allontana. Mentre corro, rimango fermo dentro di me, e aspetto. Sono finalmente alla mia mercé. All'inizio, avevo tredici anni e correvo perché avevo trovato il silenzio di una pace che ritenevo non appartenermi. Non sapevo ancora che era soltanto il riflesso della mia stessa pace. poi, quando la vita si complicò, era troppo tardi per riuscire a fermarsi. Correre faceva parte di me come il mio nome. Fu allora che imparai a correre contro le parole dentro di me, nello stesso modo in cui imparai a correre contro il vento."
Author: José Luís Peixoto
24. "Literature is dead, my boy' the uncle replied. 'Look at these empty rooms, and these books buried in their dust; no one reads anymore; I am the guardian of a cemetery here, and exhumation is forbidden.' . . . 'My boy, never speak of literature, never speak of art! Accept the situation as it is! You are Monsieur Boutardins ward before being your Uncle Huguenin's nephew!"
Author: Jules Verne
25. "I wanted to say, "I'm the Doctor and this is my companion," but I doubted Sophie was a fan of the long-running BBC series. Forget the TARDIS and the sonic screwdriver, the Doctor's best gadget was the psychic paper. I can't tell you how many times I wished I had some."
Author: Kevin Hearne
26. "The little girl's face was from Will's vilest nightmares. Cavernous mouth, distended chin, bastardized nose. The enormous, bulging eyes glared at Will, demanded he see the truth, commanded him to acknowledge his sin."
Author: Kevin Wallis
27. "With how you were reacting to that glamour, I'll have to keep an eye on you. Otherwise the next time I see you, you'll probably have a Doctor Who tramp stamp.For one awkward second, I realized that the only way Suzume could possibly look hotter to me was if she had a tattoo of the TARDIS on the middle of her lower back. I was profoundly grateful in that moment that the kitsune were unable to read minds."
Author: M.L. Brennan
28. "Yes. You see, the whole nature, shape and even the modern blue pigment of the TARDIS is so deeply unfamiliar to the primitive mind that, although the optic nerve registers its presence, the brain cannot decode what it is seeing. The primitive visual cortex is unable to relay information about it consciously to the viewer. In effect, even though her chameleon circuit is still damaged, she's as good as invisible. She'll be just fine."
Author: Marcus Sedgwick
29. "Temporal grace,' said the Doctor. ‘No weapons can function inside the TARDIS – even something as simple as a spear."
Author: Marcus Sedgwick
30. "My reign is not yet over... you live, and my power is complete. Follow me; I seek the everlasting ices of the north, where you will feel the misery of cold and frost to which I am impassive. You will find near this place, if you follow not too tardily, a dead hare; eat and be refreshed. Come on, my enemy; we have yet to wrestle for our lives; but many hard and miserable hours must you endure until that period shall arrive."
Author: Mary Shelley
31. "Gonna have to give myself a mental enema when we get back to the TARDIS."
Author: Mike Tucker
32. "The TARDIS can look like whatever it wants."
Author: Mora Early
33. "Where's Rory? I want him, right now,' demanded Amy as the TARDIS lurched away into space and time. The Doctor had only briefly met her fiancé, Rory Williams, once before. She didn't think the Doctor understood what she saw in Rory. Some days, she was not entirely sure what she saw in Rory. But she was certain of this: nobody took her fiancé away from her. ‘Good question. Where's Rory? Also, where's seven billion other people?' he asked. ‘I want my Rory."
Author: Neil Gaiman
34. "The bemused Brigadier shook his head. "You and that TARDIS."
Author: Peter Grimwade
35. "But are his needs any more shocking than the needs of any other animals and men? Are his deeds more outrageous than the deeds of the parent who drained the spirit from his child? The vampire may foster quickened heartbeats and levitated hair. But is he worse than the parent who gave to society a neurotic child who became a politician? Is he worse than the manufacturer who set up belated foundations with the money he made by handing bombs and guns to suicidal nationalists? Is he worse than the distiller who gave bastardized grain juice to stultify further the brains of those who, sober, were incapable of progressive thought? (Nay, I apologize for this calumny; I nip the brew that feeds me.) Is he worse, then, than the publisher who filled ubiquitous racks with lust and death wishes? Really, no, search your soul, lovie--is the vampire so bad?"
Author: Richard Matheson

In the TARDIS.Donna: You don't want me.The Doctor: I'm not saying that.Donna: But you asked me. would you rather be on your own?The Doctor: No. Actually no. But. The last time, with Martha—like I said, it got complicated. And that was all my fault. I just want a mate.Donna: You just want to mate?!The Doctor: I just want a mate.Donna: Well you're not mating with me, sunshine!The Doctor: A mate! I just want a mate.Donna: Well it's just as well, because I'm not having any of that nonense. I mean you're just a long streak of... nothing! Alien nothing.The Doctor: There we are then."
Author: Russell T Davies
37. "Sylvia: Stay right where you are.The Doctor: You can't come with me.Wilfred: Well you're not leaving me with her.Sylvia: Dad!The Doctor: Fair enough.Sylvia yelling at the TARDIS: Come back here! Come back here, I said! Come back!Donna: Are you shouting at thin air?Sylvia: Yes. Possibly. Yes.-Doctor Who"
Author: Russell T Davies
38. "The Master: Where's the TARDIS?The Doctor: Just stop. Just think.The Master: Kill him! I need that technology, Doctor. Tell me where it is or the old man is dead.Wilfred: Don't tell him!The Master: I'll kill him right now!The Doctor: Actually the most impressive thing about you is that after all this time you're still bone dead stupid.The Master: Take aim.The Doctor: You 've got six billion pairs of eyes but you still can't see the obvious, can you?The Master: I what?The Doctor: That guard is one inch too tall.(The guard, Rossiter, hits the Master)Rossiter: Oh my god I hit him! I've never hit anyone in my life.Addams: Well come on! We need to get out of here fast.Wilfred: God bless the cactuses.The Doctor: That's cactii.Rossiter: That's racist!-Doctor Who"

39. "Rose:i love youDoctor:Quite right, and i guess if it's my last chance to say it... Rose Tyler...(the doctor fades, him in his TARDIS, with tear tracks and a tear running down his cheek)"
Author: Russell T. Davies

[Pause] So was I![The TARDIS lights up with energy as the Doctor regenerates into his tenth incarnation.]The Tenth Doctor: Hello! Okay— [The Doctor pauses and swallows uncomfortably] New teeth. That's weird. So where was I? Oh, that's right. Barcelona! [Grins]"
Author: Russell T. Davies
41. "Mi si avvicinò, sfiorandomi la fronte con le labbra.Nessuno fu più sorpreso di me, anche se mi parve di sentire un'esclamazione trattenuta venire da Jared. Restai a bocca aperta, mentre Ian si voltava e usciva dalla stanza, quasi di corsa....mi si fece accanto, abbracciandomi. Lo sentivo respirare ritmicamente, più veloce del normale.Che cosa strana.«Vuole sapere cos'è stato a... cambiare il tuo atteggiamento. Perché a-desso ti fidi di noi?»Ci pensò per qualche istante. «Un... insieme di particolari. La tua... gentilezza nei confronti di Walter. Non ho visto mai nessuno, a parte Doc, ca-pace di tanta compassione. E poi hai salvato la vita a Kyle, quando la maggior parte di noi lo avrebbe lasciato cadere pur di salvarsi la pelle, a parte il tentativo di ucciderti. E poi sei una delusione, come bugiarda.» Fece una risata. «Mi sono intestardito a considerarli tutti indizi di un piano più complesso. Magari domattina quando mi sveglio la penserò ancora così.»"
Author: Stephenie Meyer
42. "Parlando di Edward:Jacob:«È come una droga per te, Bella. Ormai ho capito che senza di lui non puoi vivere. È troppo tardi. Ma io sarei stato una scelta più sana. Non una droga: io sarei stato l'aria, il sole»Isabella: «Anch'io ne ero convinta, sai. Eri come un sole. Il mio sole personale. Il rimedio migliore alle nuvole»Jacob: «Con le nuvole posso farcela. Ma non posso cavarmela contro un'eclissi»"
Author: Stephenie Meyer
43. "When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it'll never end. But however hard you try you can't run forever. Everybody knows that everybody dies and nobody knows it like the Doctor. But I do think that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark if he ever for one moment, accepts it. Everybody knows that everybody dies. But not every day. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. (In the library, the Doctor walks back to the TARDIS. He stops, looking at the doors. Then he raises his hand, and stands there poised like that for a long moment. Finally he snaps his fingers. The doors open. He smiles slowly and walks in, joining Donna. Then he snaps his fingers again, and the doors close. River's voice continues over this.) Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair, and the Doctor comes to call... everybody lives."
Author: Steven Moffat
44. "Morals, principles and laws are when faith is reduced to standards and those standards basically just bind us, and we become prejudicial, racist, self-serving when we're guided by these laws... When a developed country uses Christianity in its policies, in government, in maintaining corporate wealth, that's a bastardized rendering of a faith."
Author: Sufjan Stevens
45. "We - again, the, the, the, the bastardization and the demonization over the last few years of teachers and of unions and of collective bargaining, that is not the answer."
Author: Tavis Smiley
46. "My child, I am the Lord Who gives strength in the day of trouble. Come to Me when all is not well with you. Your tardiness in turning to prayer is the greatest obstacle to heavenly consolation, for before you pray earnestly to Me you first seek many comforts and take pleasure in outward things. Thus, all things are of little profit to you until you realize that I am the one Who saves those who trust in Me, and that outside of Me there is no worth-while help, or any useful counsel or lasting remedy."
Author: Thomas à Kempis

Author: William Shakespeare
50. "Hate not a man for his tardiness for the only thing that is on time is; time it self."
Author: Xela Ffonrims
