Elizabeth Gilbert
“But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one's life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your favourite fountain? And then to do it again the next day?”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Guy de Maupassant
“I love the night passionately. I love it as I love my country, or my mistress, with an instinctive, deep, and unshakeable love. I love it with all my senses: I love to see it, I love to breathe it in, I love to open my ears to its silence, I love my whole body to be caressed by its blackness. Skylarks sing in the sunshine, the blue sky, the warm air, in the fresh morning light. The owl flies by night, a dark shadow passing through the darkness; he hoots his sinister, quivering hoot, as though he delights in the intoxicating black immensity of space. ”
Guy de Maupassant

C.G. Jung

Thomas Hobbes
“So that in the nature of man,
we find three principal causes of quarrel:

First, Competition;
Secondly, Dissidence;
Thirdly, Glory.

The first, maketh men invade for Gain;
the second, for Safety;
and the third, for Reputation.

The first use Violence, to make themselves Masters of other men's persons, wives, children and cattle;
the second, to defend them;
the third, for trifles, as a word, a smile, a different opinion, and any other sign of undervalue, either direct in their Persons, or by reflexion in their Kindred, their Friends, their Nation, their Profession, or their Name.”
Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan

Olive Senior
“For she acted exactly as she pleased, laughed at his strictures against her behaviour, her friends, his lectures on 'respectability'. She was the first woman in his existence who had a life of her own, who did things simply because they pleased her, who argued, who asserted herself. There was only one role he was equipped to play which was to resist, to the bitter end, this encroachment as he saw it on his authority, his manhood. And bitter it became.”
Olive Senior, Arrival of the Snake-Woman and Other Stories

Maricla Pannocchia
“I feel like being run over by a train: how couldn't I see, or care? I have much more than I need when it comes to material things as well as opportunities. I can basically do everything I want. Sure, my parents can still tell me where to go or what to do, but they don‟t impose their views on me. They will never marry me off. They will never forbid me to go to school. They will always do their best to make sure I‟ll be happy, healthy and safe.
And what have I done to deserve all this?
Absolutely nothing.
It was a chance of luck, and that makes me responsible toward those who have not been as lucky as me.”
Maricla Pannocchia, Letters from Afghanistan

“My life has always been so easy. Everything here is so simple.
Problems are not really problems. I‟ve never felt cornered, hurt or threatened in my whole life. If someone would abuse me, or scare me, like a bully, I could always get the help of a parent or a teacher, or even the police.
I admire Basya so much.
I don‟t know how she can be so strong, then I realize she has no choice. The alternative is giving up, and she‟ll never give up.
She could stop her education like her friend Silsila”
