But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.George Eliot

Actually we did not have the feelings we said we had until we spoke them--at least I didn't; to phrase them was to invent them and own them.Philip Roth

“Jdu proti řece, v řece je stříbro a zlaté listí. Jdu sám a najednou si uvědomuji, že tu nehoukají auta, abych uhnul, a nedrnčí tramvaje, abych couvnul. A to je vlastně ten hlavní důvod, proč jdu na štiky.”
Ota Pavel

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Jarod Kintz
“Instead of a Lemonade Stand, I should open up a “You know what I can’t stand?” Stand. I’ll sell rants in small, medium, and large.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

Arthur Schopenhauer
“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality
