Ai un citat care suna misto sau unul pe care tocmai l-ai citit si ti-a placut mult? Posteaza-l aici, ca sa-l citim cu totii Wink


"There was a noise like —

It made Mort recall the old yard at home, with a pang of homesickness. During the harsh Ramtop winters the family kept hardy mountain tharga beasts in the yard, chucking in straw as necessary. After the spring thaw the yard was several feet deep and had quite a solid crust on it. You could walk across it if you were careful. If you weren't, and sank knee deep in the concentrated gyppo, then the sound your boot made as it came out, green and steaming, was as much the sound of the turning year as birdsong and beebuzz.

It was that noise. Mort instinctively examined his shoes.

Ysabell was crying, not in little ladylike sobs, but in great yawning gulps, like bubbles from an underwater volcano, fighting one another to be the first to the surface. They were sobs escaping under pressure, matured in humdrum misery.

Mort said,'Er?' "


(Terry Pratchett - Mort) Laughing

Din Gene Wolfe am 2 citate (sunt mai multe misto, dar va mai las sa le descoperiti si singuri ). Very Happy

Intai o descriere:

"What was done with so much labor there might have been accomplished in the cliff I descended with almost none. The past stood at my shoulder, naked and defenseless as all dead things, as though it were time itself that had been laid open by the fall of the mountain. Fossil bones protruded from the surface in places, the bones of mighty animals and of men. The forest had set its own dead there as well, stumps and limbs that time had turned to stone, so that I wondered as I descended, if it might not be that Urth is not, as we assume, older than her daughters the trees, and imagined them growing in the emptiness before the face of the sun, tree clinging to tree with tangled roots and interlacing twigs until at last their accumulation became our Urth, and they only the nap of their garment."
(Gene Wolfe - Sword of the Lictor)

Si asta:
" 'Did you not ever think, Severian,' she said, 'that he who wore a mask might wear another?' " (Gene Wolfe - Sword of the Lictor)

Lord Hong was flying a kite. It was something he did perfectly.

Lord Hong did everything perfectly. His watercolours were perfect. His poetry was perfect. When he folded paper, everything was perfect. Imaginative, original and definitely perfect. Lord Hong had long ago ceased pursuing perfection because he already had it nailed up in a dungeon somewhere.


(Terry Pratchett - Interesting times)

Fisierul mare cu citate e pe celalalt calculator si eu nu-s acasa, asa ca... o mica selectie din pluginul de random quotes de pe blog (nu verificati, momentan nu e afisat din motive de lene groaznica):

"You may call them parallel worlds if you wish, alternate universes if you would, the products of a deranged mind if you care to. I call them shadows, as do all who possess the power to walk among them."

"I would not be taken that easily, and while I had often said that I wanted to die in bed, what I really meant was that in my old age I wanted to be stepped on by an elephant while making love."

Amber, of course Very Happy

"Somewhere it is raining. Controlled or artificial – somewhere it is always raining, any time you care to think about it. Always remember that, if you can.
[...]
Somewhere the sun is always shining, any time you care to think about it. Try to remember that, if you can. It is very important."

Zelazny - Angel, Dark Angel

"But there is really only one thing that he loves: the life of Francis Sandow. Statistics tell him that he should have died long ao, and he burns incense before the shrine of statistics."
Zelazny - Dismal Light

"NEGRO - Member of a subgroup of the human race who hails, or whose ancestors hailed, from a chunk of land nicknamed - not by its residents - Africa. Superior to the Caucasian in that negroes didn't invent neclear weapons, the automobile, Christianity, nerve gas, the concentration camp, military epidemics, or the megalopolis."
John Brunner - Stand on Zanzibar

Graffito written on the front of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta in red spray paint:
"Dear Jesus. I will see you soon. Your friend, America. PS. I hope you will still have some vacancies by the end of the week."

Stephen King - The Stand I love you

"Intr-o clipa, am ajuns undeva deasupra. pe sub mine-capete, capete, capete, guri deschise larg ca sa strige, brate care se inalta si coboare. Era extraordinar, imbatator: m-am sintit deasupra tuturor. Eu-eram eu, o entitate separata, o lume. Am incetat sa mai fiu doar o componenta, asa cum fusesem si am devenit o unitate."

"Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux."

* Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

"Bad spelling can be lethal. For example, the greedy Seriph of Al-Yabi was cursed by a badly-educated deity and for some days everything he touched turned to Glod, which happened to be the name of a small dwarf from a mountain community hundreds of miles away who found himself magically dragged to the kingdom and relentlessly duplicated. Some two thousand Glods later the spell wore off. These days, the people of Al-Yabi are renowned for being remarkably short and bad-tempered."

(Terry Pratchett Wink )

Pai, atunci und se duc numele pierdute? E foarte putin probabil sa poata supravietui in orasul acesta ca un labirint. Unele dintre ele sunt tarate de tiruri si zdrobite pe sosea, altele au o moarte de caine, pentru simplul motiv ca nu le-au ajuns banii sa ia trenul, iar altele, umplandu-si buzunarele cu mandrie ca sa le traga in jos, se scufunda in apele unui rau adanc.
Totusi, unele dintre ele resusesc sa supravietuiasca si ajung in orasul numelor pierdute, unde intemeiaza poate mica lor comunitate retrasa. Un orasel mic, mic de tot. Iar la intrarea lui s-ar gasi cu siguranta un indicator pe care scria:
Nu au voie sa intre aici decat cei care au treaba.
Cei care intrau fara sa aiba treaba primeau rasplata cuvenita.

"There was a notice on the dune.
It said, in several languages: AXIOM TESTING STATION
Below it, in slightly smaller writing it added: CAUTION - UNRESOLVED POSTULATES
" As they read it, or at least as Teppic read it and Ptraci didn't, there was a twang from behind the dune, followed by a click, followed by an arrow zipping overhead.
[...]
'Give in?'
'We simply haven't got all the parameters right.'
'I know what we haven't got all right'
'What is it, pray?'
'We haven't got any more bloody tortoises. That's what we haven't got.'

Teppic carefully poked his head over the top of the dune. He saw a large cleared area, surrounded by complicated ranks of markers and flags. There were one or two buildings in it, mostly consisting of cages, and several other intricate constructions he could not recognize. In the middle of it all were two men - one small, fat and florid, the other tall and willowy and with an indefinable air of authority. They were wearing sheets. Clustered around them and not wearing very much at all, was a group of slaves. One of them was holding a bow.
Several of them were holding tortoises on sticks. They looked a bit pathetic, like tortoise lollies.
'Anyway, it's cruel' said the tall man. 'Poor little things. They look so sad with their little legs waggling.'
'It's logically impossible for the arrow to hit them!' The fat man threw up his hands. 'It shouldn't do it! You must be giving me the wrong type of tortoises,' he added accusingly. 'We ought to try again with faster tortoises.'
'Or slower arrows.'
'Possibly, possibly.' " (Terry Pratchett - Pyramids) farao This basically made my day clap

"Sometimes the truth is arrived ad by adding all the little lies together and deducting them from the totality of what is known."

"- The prospect of freedom?
- Exactly. There is always a choice.
- You mean ... I could choose certain death?
- A choice, nevertheless. Or perhaps an alternative. You see, I belive in freedom. Not many people do, although they will of course protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based."

Terry Pratchett - Going Postal



"Ah well, life goes on" people say when someone dies. But from the point of view of the person who has just died, it doesn`t. It`s the universe that goes on. Just as the deceased was getting the hang of everything it`s all whisked away, by illness or accident or, in one case, a cucumber. Why this has to be one of the imponderables in life, in the face of which people either start to pray ... or become really really angry.

Terry Pratchett - The Last Hero


“My doctor says that I have a malformed public duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fibre,' he muttered to himself, 'and that I am therefore excused from saving Universes."

Douglas Adams - H2G2 (The Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy)


Am avut prieteni, prieteni adevărați, amici, colege, colegi de clasă. Era plăcut. Persoane de care eram legat. Dar timpul, depărtarea, minciuna, înclinația pe care o au unele plante de a se crede adulte crescând, egoismul, lașitatea, orgoliul, spiritul serios, rănile tăcute, făcute și primite, loviturile îmbrăcate în zâmbete și indiferență, din pricina acestor dăunători nu mi-a mai rămas astăzi nici unul. Și nu e trist. Faptul că asta nu e trist este poate trist, dar, în sine, nu e trist. Nu mi-aș dori prietenii care nu rezistă presiunii timpului și a vieții.
[...]
Din când în când, găsesc pe robot mesaje din partea acestor dispăruți care mă invită la mese cu foști, la regăsiri, la: ”Alo, ce-ai mai făcut?” Pentru că neapărat trebuie sa fi făcut ceva, nu e de ajuns sa fii. Cel mai bine e să fi ajuns cineva, de preferință altcineva. Înainte nu erai aproape nimeni, doar tu însuți.
[...]
Ca prieteni, au murit. E trist. Ca ființe omenești, sunt vii. E si mai trist. Dar nu ființele omenești le iubeam în ei, ci prietenii.

"My schedule for today lists a six-hour self-accusatory depression."
— Philip K. Dick (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?)

"The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give."
— Philip K. Dick

"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away. "
— Philip K. Dick

""The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of
the dead, and so people only go to hell if that's where they believe, in
their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won't do if they
don't know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot
missionaries on sight."
— Terry Pratchett (Eric (Discworld)

"The place where the story happened was a world on the back of four elephants perched on the shell of a giant turtle. That's the advantage of space. It's big enough to hold practically anything, and so, eventually, it does.
People think that it is strange to have a turtle ten thousand miles long and an elephant more than two thousand miles tall, which just shows that the human brain is ill-adapted for thinking and was probably originally designed for cooling the blood. It believes mere size is amazing.
There's nothing amazing about size. Turtles are amazing, and elephants are quite astonishing. But the fact that there's a big turtle is far less amazing than the fact that there is a turtle anywhere.
--The Last Hero" — Terry Pratchett

"Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil... prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon..."
— Terry Pratchett

"There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist."
— Terry Pratchett

"The purpose of argument is to change the nature of truth."
— Frank Herbert (Children of Dune (Dune Chronicles #3))

"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't."
— Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

"Technology is a word that describes something that doesn't work yet."
— Douglas Adams

"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong, it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair."
— Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

"The problem with designing something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of a complete fool. "
— Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

"The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be."
— Douglas Adams

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move."
— Douglas Adams (The Restaurant at the End of the Universe)

"I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."
— Douglas Adams


Arrow Si mai am multe altele dar cred ca ma injura lumea pentru posturi kilometrice. What can I say, I`m a sucker when it comes to quotes from favourite books.

"Domnul iti da viata, te face sa cresti, te umple de dorinte, de regrete, de bucurii si suferinte, de manie si indurare. Apoi te ia din nou la el. Totusi, tu nu esti nici acest scolar, nici acest sot, nici acest copil, nici acest batran. Esti cel care se desavarseste. Si, daca te vei descoperi asemenea unei ramuri unduitoare, prinse temeinic in trunchiul maslinului, vei gusta eternitatea in miscarile tale. Si totul in jurul tau va deveni vesnic. Vesnica fantana care canta si care a potolit setea parintilor tai, vesnica lumina ochilor cand iti va surade fata pe care o iubesti, vesnica racoarea noptilor. Timpul nu mai e clepsidra ce-si scurge timpul, ci un secerator care-si leaga snopul."

Saint-Exupery - Citadela
