Henry David Thoreau
“If a man does not keep pace with his
companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let
him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
It is not important that he should mature as soon as an apple-tree or
an oak. Shall he turn his spring into summer?”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“Some seem to be desynchronized in their relationships. They feel oppressed, because they cannot move forward together and at the same pace. Their thinking is often incongruent, their motivation disparate. The phone could be a mediator, as it creates an impression to be a perfect reliable friend. However, in the end, it causes rather a sense of isolation, since it divides more than it unites. Eventually it appears not to be such a good friend but only a ghost friend. ( "Kein Schwein ruft mich an" )”
Erik Pevernagie

Enock Maregesi
“My novels are set in a global space and pace. However, I have never visited most of the places. I wrote my first book in London but the story took the reader to places in Mexico, Denmark and Russia, and carefully avoided London. I access these global locations with my feet planted in front of my computer. I will use my internet connection to carefully enter the streets of a foreign city and find out how long it will take my main character to get from the airport to the city center – and if there are any shortcuts on the way. I wanted to do something new. The world is becoming a global village and we have to understand these different cultures. There is a Danish culture, an Israeli culture and so on. So if you want to go to Denmark, then read the book.”
Enock Maregesi

Craig Groeschel

“Haideti sa dedicam aceasta noua era mamelor din lume, si de asemenea mamei tuturor mamelor - Mama Pamant. De noi depinde sa continuam construirea de punti pentru a aduce lumea mai aproape impreuna, si sa nu le distrugem pentru a ne separa la si mai mare distanta.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Darrell Calkins
“Your purpose, and its specific expressions, expands and accelerates as it becomes more similar to Nature’s purpose. The tools you need to apply it you collect along the path in discovering what that is. Time is there to provide you with the “opportunities” to find more creative responses to things like frustration, confusion and self-righteousness. As you gently, oh so gently and delicately, adjust to the requirements that exist in your actual circumstance, you are given the tools needed to surpass them.”
Darrell Calkins, Re:

Leo Tolstoy
“Togli il sangue dalle vene e versaci dell'acqua al suo posto: allora si che non ci saranno più guerre.”
Lev Tolstoy

Frédéric Bastiat
“Se su di un confine non passano le merci, vi passeranno i cannoni.”
Frédéric Bastiat

Darrell Calkins
“In the quest for a functional and direct interaction between imagination and reality, and the evolution of them both, there is in place a natural resistance, which I have referred to as Creative Resistance, because it demands just that: creativity. Much of this calls for redefining, or refining, one’s relationship with time, and all the qualities and skills that will only come from engaging time more creatively and effectively. As such, part of the bargain is about acquiescing to a rhythm that is subtler and has more definite purpose to it than one’s subjective preferences.”
Darrell Calkins, Re:

“Guarda un filo d'erba al vento e sentiti come lui. Ti passerà anche la rabbia.”

“If you would know these demands of life, you would gain a quicker success, at a greater pace, with less stress than otherwise.”
Sunday Adelaja

Christopher  Morley
“Quando si strappano tutte le fibre della civiltà è un lavoro lento quello di ricucirle insieme. Vede quei bambini per la strada che vanno a scuola? La pace è nelle loro mani. Se a scuola viene loro insegnato che la guerra è il più odioso flagello cui possa anda soggetta l'umanità, che imbratta e deforma ogni amabile occupazione dello spirito mortale, allora si potrà avere qualche speranza per il futuro.”
Christopher Morley, The Haunted Bookshop

“Never read a book to finish it, read to consume it.”
TemitOpe Ibrahim

Sarah Dessen
“Look, everyone mourns at their own pace. Maybe you're just a little bit ahead of her, but she'll get to you eventually. The important thing is that you keep trying to talk to each other, even if it's difficult at first. It gets easier. I promise.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Mitch Albom
“I was cranked to a fifth gear, and everything I did, I did on a deadline.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Paolo Cognetti
“Non ricordavo bene perché mi fossi allontanato dalla montagna, né che cos'altro avessi amato quando non amavo più lei, ma mi sembrava, risalendola ogni mattina in solitudine, di farci lentamente la pace.”
Paolo Cognetti, Le otto montagne

Paolo Cognetti
“Tornato quassù dopo tanto tempo. Sarebbe bello restarci tutti insieme, senza vedere più nessuno, senza dover più scendere a valle.”
Paolo Cognetti, Le otto montagne

Andrea Camilleri
“Le affinità elettive erano un gioco rozzo a paro degli insondabili giri del sangue, capace di dare peso, corpo, respiro alla memoria. Taliò il ralogio e sobbalzò. L'ora era ampiamente passata. Trasì nella càmmara di letto. Il vecchio si stava godendo un sonno sereno, il respiro lèggio, l'ariata distesa, calma. Viaggiava nel paese del sonno senza più ingombro di bagaglio. Poteva dormire a lungo, tanto sul comodino c'erano il portafoglio coi soldi e un bicchiere d'acqua. Si ricordò del cane di peluche che aveva comprato a Livia a Pantelleria. Lo trovò sopra il comò, nascosto dietro una scatola. Lo pigliò, lo mise a terra, ai piedi del letto. Poi chiuse adascio adascio la porta alle sue spalle.”
Andrea Camilleri, The Terra-Cotta Dog

Umberto Eco
“Rischiamo di restare sommersi da un eccesso di informazioni, e la differenza tra il silenzio e il troppo rumore è davvero minima”
Umberto Eco
