“De repente, le parecía estar aún más abandonada a sí misma. No había escapatoria posible. Cada vez que levanta la mirada, Frida miraba a Frida, observaba su desesperación silenciosa, se derrumbaba sobre sí misma. Frida sonreía, la Frida-espejo también sonreía, tranquilizada. Frida se odiaba por ese hándicap, el ojo de Frida-espejo se endurecía sin complacencia. Frida echaba de menos a Alejandro, Frida-espejo se entristecía y palidecía. Frida escribía unas palabras en un papel, Frida-espejo lo leía todo por encima de su hombro. Espejo implacable, compañero mirón. Presente, inevitable. La única solución para vivir con él: adoptarlo de una manera u otra, domeñarlo, sacarle el máximo provecho. Encontrar la manera de cohabitar, romperse la cabeza, pero encontrarla.”
Rauda Jamis

Machado de Assis
“A demonstração, porém, mais rigorosa e profunda, foi a da venalidade. Um casuísta do tempo chegou a confessar que era um monumento de lógica. A venalidade, disse o Diabo, era o exercício de um direito superior a todos os direitos. Se tu podes vender
a tua casa, o teu boi, o teu sapato, o teu chapéu, coisas que são tuas por uma razão jurídica e legal, mas que, em todo caso, estão fora de ti, como é que não podes vender a tua opinião, o teu voto, a tua palavra, a tua fé, coisas que são mais do que tuas, porque são a tua própria
consciência, isto é, tu mesmo? Negá-lo é cair no absurdo e no contraditório. Pois não há mulheres que vendem os cabelos? não pode um homem vender uma parte do seu sangue para transfundi-lo a outro homem anêmico? e o sangue e os cabelos, partes físicas, terão um
privilégio que se nega ao caráter, à porção moral do homem?”
Machado de Assis, The Devil's Church and Other Stories

Chuck Palahniuk
“McDonald’s almost hired me one time, and I only applied for the job to meet younger girls. Black girls, Hispanic, white, and Chinese girls, it says right on the job application how McDonald’s hires different races and ethnic backgrounds. It’s girls, girls, girls, buffet-style. Also on the application McDonald’s says if you have any of the following diseases: Hepatitis A, Salmonella, Shigella, Staphylococcus, Giardia, or Campylobacter, then you may not work there. This is more of a guarantee than you get meeting girls on the street. You can’t be too careful. Al least at McDonald’s she’s gone on the record saying she’s clean. Plus, there’s a very good chance she’s going to be young. Pimple young. Giggling young. Silly young and as stupid as me.”
Chuck Palahniuk

Jane Austen
“I cannot give you credit for any philosophy of the kind. Your retrospections must be so totally void of reproach, that the contentment arising from them is not of philosophy, but, what is much better, of innocence. But with me, it is not so. Painful recollections will intrude which cannot, which ought not, to be repelled. I have been a selfish being all my life, in practice, though not in principle. As a child I was taught what was right, but I was not taught to correct my temper. I was given good principles, but left to follow them in pride and conceit. Unfortunately an only son (for many years an only child), I was spoilt by my parents, who, though good themselves (my father, particularly, all that was benevolent and amiable), allowed, encouraged, almost taught me to be selfish and overbearing; to care for none beyond my own family circle; to think meanly of all the rest of the world; to wish at least to think meanly of their sense and worth compared with my own. Such I was, from eight to eight and twenty; and such I might still have been but for you, dearest, loveliest Elizabeth! What do I not owe you! You taught me a lesson, hard indeed at first, but most advantageous. By you, I was properly humbled. I came to you without a doubt of my reception. You showed me how insufficient were all my pretensions to please a woman worthy of being pleased.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
