Cassandra Clare: Pulvis et...

Pulvis et umbra sumus. It`s a line from Horace. `We are dust and shadows`. Appropriate, don`t you think?" Will said. "It`s not a long life, killing demons; one tends to die young, and then they burn your body - dust to dust, in the literal sense. And then we vanish into the shadows of history, nary a mark on the page of a mundane book to remind the world that once we existed at all.
/Cassandra Clare/

Jimi Hendrix: The story...

The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye...until we meet again

Rebecca McNutt: Why?d you...

Why?d you want to kill yourself? Didn`t you feel anything, or didn`t it hurt you?? Mandy questioned, looking puzzled. ?Yes, I suppose it did, ? it was strange, it was sharp, that?s all I can think of to describe it? and cold, but not cold like ice, more like? I don`t know, like something much worse, something horrible? and it seemed like the ground was falling upwards, becoming the sky? for a moment it made me consider that it was just a dream, that I was on some sort of drug, and then I remember being overjoyed to see the sky was still above me, then just really sad, really tired? and then I don`t remember much else about it,? Alecto told her, glaring straight ahead at the sky with narrowed eyes. ?I don`t mind, I`m not supposed to mind, anyway. Mearth already told me that eventually I would want to be dead, that it was inevitable? still, I sometimes wish that I could have done something good for other people in my life, it might have made up for all the bad stuff I`ve done.

Erica Jong: And the...

And the crazy part of it was even if you were clever, even if you spent your adolescence reading John Donne and Shaw, even if you studied history or zoology or physics and hoped to spend your life pursuing some difficult and challenging career, you still had a mind full of all the soupy longings that every high-school girl was awash in... underneath it, all you longed to be was annihilated by love, to be swept off your feet, to be filled up by a giant prick spouting sperm, soapsuds, silk and satins and, of course, money.
/Erica Jong/

Fennel Hudson: It is...

It is possible to escape the complexities, challenges and pace of modern life. All we have to do is close our eyes and picture a quiet world where time moves slowly.

Benjamin Zander: In the...

In the measurement world, you set a goal and strive for it. In the universe of possibility, you set the context and let life unfold.

Ashutosh Naliapara: I don`t...

I don`t need you, I don`t need your shitty false love, I got someone more beautiful, someone more trustworthy, someone who encourages me at every damn point in my life, someone who builds me hell strong, you know who that is, that`s pain, and pain loves to be loved, and it loves me back a million times greater. It don`t do shit lke you, It don`t break my heart, It don`t give a goddamn fuck for anyone but just cares hell for me, and I love it because it`ll never leave me.

Yvonne Pierre: In many...

In many cases, people hold on so tightly to their past pains to avoid letting go of the ?excuses? and the fear of having to be accountable for their life.

For all the boredom the straight life brings, it's not too bad.

Henri Amiel: To me...

To me the ideal doctor would be a man endowed with profound knowledge of life and of the soul, intuitively divining any suffering or disorder of whatever kind, and restoring peace by his mere presence.

David Eagleman: Although we...

Although we credit God with designing man, it turns out He`s not sufficiently skilled to have done so. In point of fact, He unintentionally knocked over the first domino by creating a palette of atoms with different shapes. Electron clouds bonded, molecules bloomed, proteins embraced, and eventually cells formed and learned how to hang on to one another like lovebirds. He discovered that by simmering the Earth at the proper distance from the Sun, it instinctively sprouted with life. He`s not so much a creator as a molecule tinkerer who enjoyed a stroke of luck: He simply set the ball rolling by creating a smorgasbord of matter, and creation ensued.
/David Eagleman/
