    “Zamišljao sam svijet kao jedan veliki stroj. Strojevi ne dolaze sa suvišnim dijelovima, znaš. Uvijek dolaze s točnom količinom dijelova koji su im potrebni. Stoga pomislih, kada bi cijeli svijet bio jedan veliki stroj, ne bih mogao biti suvišan. Morao sam biti ovdje iz nekoga razloga. A to znači da iz nekoga razloga ovdje moraš biti i ti.”

    “I’d imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need.

    Hugo Cabret

    Roald Dahl
    “If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
    Roald Dahl, The Twits

    “And I'm not too great at that sort of comforting thing, especially when my hands are cold and the bed is warm. I carried him softly through the broken street, with one salty eye and a heavy, deathly heart. With him I tried a little harder. I watched the contents of his soul for a moment and saw a black-painted boy calling the name Jesse Owens as he ran through an imaginary tape. I saw him hip-deep in some icy water chasing a book, and I saw a boy lying in bed, imagining how a kiss would taste from his glorious next door neighbour. He does something to me, that boy. Every time. He steps on my heart. He makes me cry.”
    Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
