Cecelia Ahern
“Nobody who says as little as he does is as simple as you'd think. It takes a lot to not say a lot, because when you're not talking, you're thinking, and he thinks a lot. My mum and dad talked all the time. Talkers don't think much; their words drown out any possibility of hearing their subconscious asking, Why did you say that? What do you really think?
Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet. Then all things are at risk. It is as when a conflagration has broken out in a great city, and no man knows what is safe, or where it will end. There is not a piece of science, but its flank may be turned to-morrow; there is not any literary reputation, not the so-called eternal names of fame, that may not be revised and condemned. The very hopes of man, the thoughts of his heart, the religion of nations, the manner and morals of mankind, are all at the mercy of a new generalization. Generalization is always a new influx of the divinity into the mind. Hence the thrill that attends it.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Books and drafts mean something quite different for different thinkers. One collects in a book the lights he was able to steal and carry home swiftly out of the rays of some insight that suddenly dawned on him, while another thinker offers us nothing but shadows - images in black and grey of what had built up in his soul the day before.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science

Gregory Maguire

Carl Lotus Becker

Shannon L. Alder
“I could crawl inside the lyrics and know each note intimately. They would claw at my soul, until I could no longer fight the emotions that took me to a place I couldn't experience. But, it was the possibility that made every verse a heart filled prediction and every beat a direction to follow.”
Shannon L. Alder

“To me the great divide is between the talkative and the quiet. Do they just say everything that's on their minds, even before it's on their minds? Sometimes I think I could just turn up my head like a Walkman so what's going on there could be heard by others. But there would still be a difference. For inside the head they are talking to people like them, and I am talking to someone like me: he is quiet and doesn't much like being talked at; he can't conceal how easily he gets bored.”
James Richardson, Vectors: Aphorisms & Ten-Second Essays

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Die Welt ist voller Torheit, Dumpfheit, Inkonsequenz und Ungerechtigkeit. Es gehört viel Mut dazu, diesen nicht das Feld zu räumen.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“The latent abundance of your inner most resources matters less. What matter most is the impact you can make with your inner resources and the distinctive footprints you can leave with what is within you. The excuse not to dare is there for everybody. When you see so many people crowded at the entrance, think of the roofing and if the roofing is too high, think of the next door and if the next door is not penetrable, create a door within the wall.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“What a paradox it is, the sane causes more problems than the insane! It is! The real problems of the world do not come from the insane but, the sane!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Things were different in the past. People idolized thinkers, philosophers, artists and scientists. Today the world admires CEOs, businessmen and managers. Basically, the people who are rich and successful in terms of wealth. This is why the world today is messed up.”
Abhaidev, The Influencer: Speed Must Have a Limit

E.J. Beaton
“Strength without swords."
"How does one conquer without a sword? Without a weapon?"
"The real leader conquers with her mind. Princess Santieri's phrase, was it not?”
E.J. Beaton, The Councillor

Sándor Márai
“«Improvvisamente ho capito che non c'è nessuna persona giusta. Non esiste né in terra né in cielo né da nessun'altra parte, puoi starne certa. Esistono soltanto le persone, e in ognuna c'è un pizzico di quella giusta, ma in nessuna c'è tutto quello che ci aspettiamo e speriamo. Nessuna racchiude in sé tutto questo, e non esiste quella certa figura, l'unica, la meravigliosa, la sola che potrà darci la felicità. Esistono soltanto delle persone, e in ognuna ci sono scorie e raggi di luce, tutto…».”
Sándor Márai, La mujer justa
