A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.

Anger and resentment can stop you in your tracks. That’s what I know now. It needs nothing to burn but the air and the life that it swallows and smothers. It’s real, though, the fury, even when it isn’t. It can change you, turn you, mold you and shape you into someone you’re not. The only upside to anger, then, is the person you become. Hopefully, someone that wakes up one day and realizes they’re not afraid of its journey. Someone that knows that the truth is, at best, a partially told story. That anger, like growth, comes in spurts and fits, and in its wake, leaves a new chance at acceptance and the promise of calm.

Yes. - Well, why don’t we just stipulate that the date goes well and move to the key variable. - You mean kiss you now? - Yes.
Are you for real? - If I actually knew what that question meant, I might attempt to answer it.

Ti chiedo perdono dal profondo del mio cuore per tutto quello che non ho potuto darti, per le mie mancanze. Ti amo. (Yuliana Albeaez)
Assumere un incompetente equivale a rafforzare la concorrenza.
At a certain point in your life, probably when too much of it has gone by, you will open your eyes and see yourself for who you are. Especially for everything that made you so different from all the awful normals. And you will say to yourself, "But I am this person". And in that statement, that correction, there will be a kind of love.
At some point you have to realize he doesn’t care and you could be missing out on someone who does.
At the beep, please leave your name, number, and a brief justification for the ontological necessity of modern man’s existential dilemma, and we’ll get back to you.
At the center of the world "belief" there’s the world "lie".
At the end of the game, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
At the right moment, you have to do what nobody expects.
At this point that you will make a startling discovery.
At times I think and at times I am. (Paul Valery)
Atarassia - Imperturbabilità, termine usato dagli epicurei e dagli scettici per indicare quello stato di perfetta tranquillità e serenità d'animo, raggiunto dal saggio una volta libero dalle passioni.
Atarassico - Imperturbabile, immune da emozioni, affetti, passioni.
Atreyu: Che cos’è questo nulla? - G'mork: È il vuoto che ci circonda, è la disperazione che distrugge il mondo e io ho fatto in modo di attrarlo. – Atreyu: Ma perché?! - G'mork: Perché è più facile dominare chi non crede in niente e questo è il modo più sicuro di conquistare il potere.
Attende tibi. (Prendi cura di te stesso.)
Attendo impaziente il momento in cui potrò sospirare, guardarti negli occhi e dire non vedevo l’ora.
Attenzione a ciò che desideri, perché potrebbe realizzarsi.

Attractive, my dear, is a polite way of saying a woman’s made the most of what she’s got.
Attraversare l’Atlantico su una zattera o restare a casa a guardare la tv in fondo è la stessa cosa, no? Alla fine quello che ti resta dopo è parlarne agli amici. (Nick Hornby)

Ave formosissima, gemma pretiosa, Ave, decus virginum, virgo gloriosa, Ave, mundi luminar, Ave, mundi rosa, Blanziflor et Helena, Venus generosa! [Ave bellissima, preziosa gemma, Ave perla delle vergini, gloriosa vergine, Ave luce del mondo, Ave rosa del mondo, Biancofiore ed Elena, Venere magnanima!]
Avete mai sentito la frase "l'uomo va al di là di ciò che può afferrare"? È falso. Ciò che può afferrare va al di là del suo coraggio.
Avrei voluto che fossi tu ciò che volevo.
Avrei voluto che restassimo amici. - Amici? - Certo, ma senti.. beh, vedi, Heather, io non credo che ci saremmo riusciti, perché io ho il carattere che ho e cerco di limitare il numero degli amici bugiardi e stronzi al minimo indispensabile. - Ti prego, Mickey, le tue cazzate moralistiche me le potresti risparmiare.. - Scusa tanto.. evidentemente il fatto che io cercassi sempre di comportarmi in maniera corretta ti infastidiva.. - Dove ti ha portato la correttezza? Guardati..

Bad habits are like chains that are too light to feel until they are too heavy to carry. (Warren Buffet)
Bad literature is a form of treason. (Joseph Brodsky)
Badate ai fanciulli, amici miei, badate sempre ai fanciulli, se vi sta a cuore di averne degli uomini. Che le occasioni non diano mala piega alle loro passioncelle; che una sprovveduta condiscendenza, o una soverchia durezza, o una micidiale trascuranza non li lascino in bilico di creder giusto ciò che piace e abominevole quello che dispiace. Preparate loro col maggior accorgimento occasioni da trovar bella, santa, piacevole la virtù, e brutto e spiacevole il vizio. Un grano di buona esperienza a nove anni, val più assai che un corso di morale a venti. (Ippolito Nievo)
Balaustra di brezza / per appoggiare, stasera, / la mia malinconia. (Stasera, Giuseppe Ungaretti)

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint: What Equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER 100% How about ACHIEVING 101%? What equals 100% in life? Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help Answer these questions:
If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
If: H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
And: K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
But: A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
THEN, look how far the love of God will take you: L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D 12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101% Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that: While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will Get you there, It’s the Love of God that will put you over the top!
Because he would take no time off for friends or rest or social life, Balducci accused him of trying to escape the world by fleeing into marble. He admitted to his friend that he was half right; the sculptor carries into the marble the vision of a more luminous world than the one that surrounds him. But the artist was not in flight; he was in pursuit. He was trying with all his might to overtake a vision. Did God really rest on the seventh day? In the cool of that long afternoon, when he was refreshed, might he not have asked himself, “Whom have I on earth to speak for me? I had best create another species, one apart. I will call him ‘Artist.’ His will be the task to bring meaning and beauty to the world.” (The Agony & The Ecstasy, Irving Stone, re: Michelangelo)

Bugiarda patologica
Builder’s tea; we dunk biscuits into it. Means lowering the biscuit into the tea and letting it soak in there and trying to calculate the exact moment before the biscuit dissolves, when you whip it up into your mouth and enjoy the blissful union of biscuits and tea combined. It’s more relaxing than it sounds.
But charm is more valuable than beauty. You can resist beauty, but you can’t resist charm. (Pierre Salvadori)
But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. (Stephen Chbosky)
But I thought... - I don’t pay you to think.
But I’m not that guy...and I don’t wanna be. So maybe the elite girls just aren’t for me then, but one of these days, I’m gonna meet a girl who really loves me. Maybe she won’t be what you’d call hot, but I’ll think she’s beautiful, and I’ll tell her so. I won’t be mean to her cuz I won’t have to play games with her. I’ll just be the guy she can always count on, and that’ll be enough. And she’ll be elite to me...

C’è condanna peggiore di non sapere perché, senz’odio, e senz’amore, ha un cuor tanto dolore? (Paul Verlaine)
C’è poco da dire, c’è molto da dare.
C’è qualcosa di peggio del morire soffrendo lentamente?
C’è sempre qualcuno da sacrificare in una rivoluzione, Diego.. - Beh, io preferisco l’evoluzione.

C’è una gran folla là fuori.. metà ti considera il diavolo; l’altra metà.. un eroe.

C’est une punition du chantage à moi. Vous allez me régler les comptes et c’est vous ignorantes demoiselles qui le paieront! (E' la punizione per avere osato minacciarmi. Vi farò pagare per i vostri errori pagherete tutto fino in fondo, signorine ignoranti)
Calmness is the cradle of power. (Josiah Gilbert Holland)
Can you at least attempt to control your thoughts?
Can you not fill my head with that sort of nonsense?
Capii che nella migliore delle ipotesi Holden era un bambino, e nella peggiore un demonio. Se volevo rimettermi in carreggiata, dovevo sbarazzarmi di lui. A volte, prima di tornare sulla via della redenzione, bisogna fare qualche fermata.
Capita, a volte, che, nel vuoto d’un momento, ci paia di vedere un santo. Guardando una persona che passa, vedi riflesso nei suoi occhi un non so che d’infinito… ti sembrerebbe quasi avvolta da una luce. Accecante.
Cara Justine, per colpa tua oggi mi licenzierò dal Retail Rodeo. Gli ultimi due giorni sono stati i più sconvolgenti della mia vita. Non sono riuscito a cancellarli dalla mia mente. Non ho mai desiderato qualcosa con tanta intensità.. e sì che di cose ne ho desiderate. Avevo definitivamente rinunciato ad essere capito dagli altri, quando sei arrivata tu. Trovare una persona che ti capisce e doverci rinunciare per via delle circostanze è la peggiore esperienza che abbia mai provato.. e sì che di brutte esperienze ne ho provate. Mi dispiace Justine, ma non ci rivedremo più. Perdonami di essere così fragile, ma sono fatto così. Addio. Holden Warder. Se per qualche ragione cambiassi idea e volessi diventare un corpo e un’anima con me, vediamoci dopo il lavoro. Ti aspetterò alle cinque davanti a Chucke Cheese’s. Se alle cinque in punto non sarai lì, non mi vedrai più in tutta la tua vita.
Carattere.. personalità. La natura non crea due caratteri uguali in nessun caso.
Caratteristiche dell’intelligenza: Reagire in modo molto flessibile alle situazioni. Trarre vantaggio da circostanze fortuite. Ricavare un senso da messaggi ambigui e contraddittori. Riconoscere l’importanza relativa dei diversi elementi di una situazione. Trovare somiglianze tra situazioni diverse nonostante le differenze che possono dividerle. Notare distinzioni tra situazioni diverse nonostante le somiglianze che possono unirle. Sintetizzare nuovi concetti prendendo concetti vecchi e collegandoli in modi nuovi. Produrre idee nuove.
Care and diligence bring luck. (Thomas Fuller)
Care is a state in which something does matter; it is the source of human tenderness. (Rollo May)
Carlos: Come on. What could be so serious for a guy like you? - George: I’m just trying to get over an old love I guess. - Carlos: My mother says that lovers are like buses. You just have to wait a little while and another one comes along.
Casualità sincronizzata parallela.
Cats are like music: it’s foolish to try to explain their worth to those who don’t appreciate them.
Cattura, nascondi e custodisci le lucine dell'arcobaleno... quel tanto che mi permetta di colorarmi di te.
C'è negli antipodi, nel contrasto assurdo, nel diverso in natura come un film che se lo tiri ti fa sentire vicino a una verità che le cose di tutti i giorni nemmeno sfiorano.
C'è tanta più intimità in un bacio che nel sesso. Perché scopare significa "sì, ok, ti amo", ma un bacio… eh, quello significa "sei il mio tipo". (Storia di Noi Due)
Cenerentola, coperta di stracci, viene trasformata dalla buona fatina in una splendida principessa... e il ballo ha inizio.
Cerca di avere torto per una volta. Il mio ego te ne sarebbe grato.
Cerca di concentrarti sui piaceri semplici, capisci? Le piccole fortune.
Cerca di ottenere ciò che ami, altrimenti sarai costretto ad amare ciò che ottieni.
Cercando un luogo in cui amarti, Senza temere il giudizio altrui, Mi sono ritrovata tra le fiamme dell’Inferno. Se all`inferno potrò incontrarti, allora avrò finalmente trovato il paradiso.
Cercati il tuo cavallo di battaglia.
Certe scoperte appaiono semplicissime, dopo che sono state fatte. (Roberto Vacca)
Certe volte può darsi che in me parli l'egoismo del comune mortale.
Certe volte tutta la vita si riduce a un unico folle gesto.
Certi pensieri vanno lasciati impensati.
Certi uomini non cercano qualcosa di logico, come i soldi. Non si possono né comprare né dominare; non ci si ragiona né ci si tratta. Certi uomini vogliono solo veder bruciare il mondo.
Challenge yourself all the days of your life.
Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. (Joshua J. Marine)
Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human. (Viktor E. Frankl)
Chance is a nickname for providence. Which is another way of saying that all history is inevitable, because it goes to the trouble of happening. Another point of view says that history is independent of individual will, determined by social conditions and relations of production. These theories propose history immune to effort, remove from the choices of everyday life. But history is made by human beings and action and passion no less than fate or economics are its essential ingredients.
Change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass. (John Steinbeck)
Change is as good as a rest.
Change is just the combination of effort and time.

Che amerà di più in Voi? - Ha detto che io sono un uomo buono. - Come se una donna avesse mai amato un uomo per le sue virtù..
Che cosa è bene? Tutto ciò che accresce il senso di potenza, la volontà di potenza. Che cosa è male? Tutto ciò che deriva dalla debolezza. Che cosa è la felicità? Sentire che la potenza aumenta, che si vince una resistenza. (Friedrich Nietzsche)
Che cos'è? O non vi vergognate? Avete paura, e vorreste farne?
Che fortuna possedere una grande intelligenza, non ti mancano mai le sciocchezze da dire. (Anton Cechov)
Che hai fatto in tutti questi anni? - Sono andato a letto presto.
Che sarebbe la vita, senza il vino? Il vino bevuto in tempi e quantità giuste è gaiezza del cuore, gioia dell’anima. (Antico Testamento, Ecclesiaste)
Che succede? - Niente.. - Non mi sembra che non sia niente.. - Non è questo il momento per capirlo
Cheetahs can change direction in midair when chasing prey.
Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age. (Booth Tarkington)

Chi ha detto che dobbiamo odiare chi ci odia?
Chi ha i denti non ha il pane; chi ha il pane non ha i denti.
Chi ha il tempo? Ma se non ce lo prendiamo mai, il tempo, quando mai lo avremo, il tempo? Château Haut-Brion, 1959. Strepitoso vino. Adoro i vini francesi, come pure la lingua francese. Io le ho provate tutte ma il francese resta la mia preferita, una lingua fantastica. Soprattutto per pronunciare oscenità. Nom de Dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d'enculé de ta mère. Sentite? È come pulirsi il culo con la seta. Ne sono affascinato.
Chi ha subito un danno è pericoloso. Sa di poter sopravvivere.
Chi mal fa, mal riceve: questa è una delle più antiche sentenze (Eschilo)
Chi nase mona mor cojon.
Chi non ha testa ha gambe
Chi per la fretta caga sull’ortica, spesso il culo gli formica.
Chi più merita più ottiene.
Chi segue gli altri non arriva mai primo.
Chi segue qualcuno non arriva mai primo.
Chi sogna di giorno conosce molte cose che sfuggono a chi sogna solo di notte. (Edgar Allan Poe)
Chi ti ama ti fa piangere.
Chi vince, chi perde è solo uno sporco intrigo che interessa politici e finanzieri multinazionali del petrolio, degli armamenti e del narco traffico. Oltre ben inteso, a terroristi vari, che abbiano il turbante o il doppiopetto. The war is not the answer.
Chi vuol esser lieto sia, nel doman non v'è certezza.
Chi vuole veramente liberarsi di te, ti accompagna alla porta.
Chiamami pazzo, ma questa è la mia filosofia: per fare in modo di avere successo è basilare proiettare un'immagine di successo in qualsiasi momento. (American Beauty)
Childhood is like being drunk: everybody remembers what you did, except you.
Children learn more from what you are than what you teach. (W. E. B. Du Bois)

Ci sarà sempre luce... anche nelle tenebre più profonde.
Ci siamo già incontrati? Ho l’impressione che ci siamo incontrati da qualche parte. Dove vive? Io vivo nel diciassettesimo. Forse l’ho vista nel mio quartiere. Lei non è un grande conversatore... Non ne sono certo, ma credo di averla vista prima. Lei ha uno sguardo mistico. C’è davvero qualcosa di speciale nel suo sguardo. Crede negli spiriti? A me quest’argomento interessa. Forse ci siamo conosciuti in un’altra vita, in un’altra era. - Ha del fuoco? - Fuoco? - Grazie. E’ strano, ma quando l’ho vista, ho sentito il bisogno di parlare con lei. Come se... io non so bene... è molto forte... è strano. Ho sentito che se non avessi parlato con lei prima di scomparire, avrei perso qualcosa di significativo... di importante.. Non è bello questo? Lei lavora in un bel posto. Non ho voluto perdere l’opportunità di parlare con lei, perché... è stupido, ma non ho voluto perderla. In ogni modo... posso? - Sì. - Crede alle anime gemelle? Qualcuno che è il complemento di qualcun altro? Le piace il Jazz? - Sì. - Charlie Parker. E Kurt Cobain? Io adoro Kurt Cobain. Non le interessa. Le darò il mio numero. Mi piacerebbe parlare con lei. Se vuole chiamarmi... per avere una conversazione più seria e soprattutto più lunga. Più lunga... Prenda. - Grazie mille.
Ci sono 10 tipi di persone al mondo. Quelli che capiscono il binario, e quelli che non lo capiscono.
Ci sono cose che si fanno perché si vogliono; altre che si vogliono perché si sa che, inevitabilmente, si faranno.
Ci sono delle persone che quando ti guardano pretendono tutto, senza chiedere niente.
Ci sono due cose che mi esasperano: essere ignorata e che mi si dicano bugie.
Ci sono stati due brutti incidenti nella mia vita, Diego: quell’autobus e tu. Tu sei di gran lunga il peggiore.
Ci sono tre frasi che amo particolarmente. “A modo mio”, “come mi pare” e “coi miei tempi”. E il mio motto è: “Pazienza!”. Con questo voglio dire che, quando ti trovi nei guai.. la cosa migliore è mantenere la calma.. finché non s’intravede una via d’uscita.
Ci vai? - Piuttosto mi spengo una sigaretta in un occhio.
Ciascuno vede ciò che si porta nel cuore.
Ciò che ami lo vivi. Questo amore, da te dichiarato, è appunto la tua vita: la radice, la sede e il centro del tuo vivere. (Fichte)
Ciò che Dio dà nel cervello toglie nel fisico.
Ciò che l’occhio vede e l’orecchio sente, la mente crede.
Ciò che si vede dipende da come si guarda. Poiché l’osservare non è solo un ricevere, uno svelare, ma al tempo stesso un atto creativo. (Kierkegaard)
Citius. Altius. Fortius. [Stronger. Higher. Faster.]
Clarity is the counterbalance of profound thoughts. (Luc de Clapiers)
Classical philosophy characteristically identified divine perfection with immobility. The Eternal Wisdom is sublimely static. Yet this Wisdom is an "unmoved mover" from whom everything gets its energy.
Clear your mind of can’t. (Dr. Samuel Johnson)
Clever Man + Clever Woman = Love / Clever Man + Foolish Woman = Sex / Foolish Man + Clever Woman = Marriage / Foolish Man + Foolish Woman = Pregnancy
Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions. (Pablo Picasso)
Colui che domina gli odori, domina il cuore degli uomini.
Combatti per sapere chi sei.
Come dire che il diavolo è morto per il freddo...
Come dire di no ad un uomo? Basta un semplice "no". C'est plus facile...
Come fa una svitata come te aiutare uno come me? - Tu vivi come in una scatola. E io posso aprire il coperchio e dare luce.
Come fai a farti amare se non puoi interferire sul libero arbitrio?
Come fai a fidarti di uno che non ha nulla da perdere?
Come from a space of peace and you’ll find that you can deal with anything. (Michael Singer)
Come mai stai qui a contemplare la luna? Le fanciulle puritane non dovrebbero spiare con troppa curiosità la primavera! La bellezza non è forse un abominio e l’amore una cosa spregevole?
Com'è noto ne uccide più la lingua che la spada, ma non sempre si afferrano appieno le reali dimensioni del problema. Ad esempio, nel preciso istante in cui Arthur Dent ha detto "Non andrei in nessun posto senza il mio asciugamano", un singolare cunicolo si è aperto nel tessuto del continuum spazio-temporale, trasportando le sue parole lontano, lontano nel tempo, attraverso quasi infinite tratte di spazio, fino a una remota galassia, dove strani e bellicosi esseri si trovavano sull'orlo di una spaventosa battaglia interstellare. I due condottieri avversari, sfolgoranti nei loro pantaloncini da battaglia tempestati di gemme nere, stavano parlamentando per l'ultima volta quando cadde un silenzio di tomba. E in quel preciso istante, le parole "Non andrei in nessun posto senza il mio asciugamano" aleggiarono sul tavolo delle trattative. Purtroppo, nella loro lingua, questo era l'insulto peggiore che si potesse concepire. Così le due flotte contrapposte decisero di appianare le restanti divergenze allo scopo di lanciare un attacco congiunto contro la nostra galassia, ormai identificata con certezza come la fonte del commento offensivo. Per migliaia di anni, le potenti navi stellari attraversarono le vuote distese dello spazio per poi tuffarsi urlanti sul pianeta Terra, dove, in seguito ad un terribile errore di calcolo delle proporzioni, l'intera flotta da guerra fu accidentalmente inghiottita da un cagnolino. Coloro che studiano le complesse interazioni di causa ed effetto nella storia dell'universo sostengono che questo genere di cose accade continuamente.
Come osi chiamarmi troia con quel gamberetto che hai nelle mutande?
Come siamo potuti arrivare a tanto, lo sa solo il diavolo.
Come un dialogo d'amore il cuore parla una sola parola
Coming in first isn't everything.
Commetto i più antichi peccati nel più moderno dei modi.
Common sense is very uncommon. (Horace Greeley)
Comprenda con quanta efficacia la sua disinformazione funziona sul nemico.
Con la morte l'identità personale perde il suo senso.
Concedimi la Serenità di accettare le cose che non posso cambiare, il Coraggio di cambiare le cose che posso cambiare e la Saggezza di capirne la differenza. (Preghiera Cherokee)
Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus. (Alexander Graham Bell)
Conduceva una frammentaria, disarticolata esistenza. Era arrivato da tempo a questa conclusione: tutti conosciamo la stessa verità. La nostra vita consiste in come scegliamo di distorcerla.
Conduct yourselves with the utmost maturity.
Confidence is feeling satisfied with who and what we are.
Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions. (Earl Gray Stevens)
Confronted with the vision of a beautiful garden, we see something beautiful about ourselves.
Conosci qualcuno che non disprezzi del tutto il tempo, che riconosca il valore di una giornata, che si renda ben conto che non passa giorno senza che egli muoia un poco? Infatti ci sbagliamo scorgendo la morte dinanzi a noi: essa, in gran parte, ci sta dietro le spalle. Tutti gli anni passati sono nel dominio della morte. Dunque, o mio Lucilio, così come tu dici, non lasciarti sfuggire un'ora sola. Se sarai padrone del presente, meno disperderai dell'avvenire. (Seneca)
Conosco una sola legge. La mia.
Conosco vite della cui mancanza non soffrirei affatto... di altre invece ogni attimo di assenza mi sembrerebbe eterno. Sono scarse di numero queste ultime -appena due in tutto- le prime molto di più di un orizzonte di moscerini.
Considering the circumstances, we would be in favor of suspending the decision for the time being.
Constatazione di diversità, non di razzismo.
Contrary to your beliefs, it’s not all about you.
Contro il pericolo di avere un’opinione troppo buona degli altri c’è un solo antidoto: averne una anche migliore di se stessi. (Walter Scott)
Corruzione e invidia e sete di potere. Crudeltà e freddezza. Una curiosità malevola e incontenibile. Pura, velenosa, tossica malignità. Da quando sei nata non hai mai dato prova di un briciolo di compassione o di simpatia o di gentilezza a meno che non pensassi di trarne un tornaconto. Hai seviziato e ucciso senza rimpianti o esitazioni; hai tradito e tramato e hai tratto vanto dalla tua slealtà. Sei un pozzo nero di sozzura morale.
Cos’altro posso dirti? Non sono nemmeno riuscito a persuaderti a lasciarti amare da me.. vedi come valgo poco?
Cos’è giusto, cos’è sbagliato sono entrambi come i lati di una stessa medaglia.
Cos’è, siamo in confidenza adesso?
Cosa faresti se io sparissi...?
Cosa ne sai del mio cuore? Cosa conosci tu oltre alla tua sofferenza? Per settimane ho vissuto con questo peso qui dentro senza potermi liberare confidandomi con qualcuno. Mi è stato imposto proprio dalla persona che reclamando i suoi diritti ha distrutto le mie speranze. Ho sopportato la sua crescente esaltazione ben sapendo che mi stava dividendo da Edward per sempre. Credimi, se non fossi stata costretta al silenzio, avresti conosciuto un cuore ancora più infranto del tuo.
Così la pigrizia è madre. Ha un figlio, il furto, e una figlia, la fame (V. Hugo, "I miserabili")
Could we pretend just for a minute that this is the first time we’ve met?

Countless as the sands of the sea are human passions. (Nikolai Gogol)
Coup de Foundre - innamoramento improvviso e travolgente.
Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’. (Mary Anne Radmacher)
Courage is a resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear. (Mark Twain)
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die. (G. K. Chesterton)
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die. (G. K. Chesterton)
Courage is fear holding on a minute longer. (George S. Patton)
Courage is fear that has said its prayers. (Dorothy Bernard)
Courage is knowing what not to fear. (Plato)
Courage is like love; it must have hope for nourishment. (Napoleon Bonaparte)
Courage is never let your actions be influenced by your fears. (Arthur Koestler)
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. (Ambrose Redmoon)
Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyway. (Dr. Robert Anthony)
Courage is the capacity to confront what can be imagined. (Leo Rosten)
Courage is the greatest of all virtues, because if you haven’t courage, you may not have an opportunity to use any of the others. (Samuel Johnson)
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount. (Clare Boothe Luce)
Courage is the power to let go of the familiar. (Raymond Lindquist)
Create each day anew. (Morihei Ueshiba)
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. (Scott Adams)
Credi al destino? Ingenua.
Credi che non ti capisca? Tu insegui un sogno disperato, questo è il tuo tormento. Tu vuoi essere, non sembrare di essere. Essere in ogni istante cosciente di te. E vigile. E nello stesso tempo ti rendi conto dell’abisso che separa ciò che sei per gli altri da ciò che sei per te stessa. Provoca quasi un senso di vertigine, il timore di vedersi scoperta, vero? Di vedersi messa a nudo, smascherata, riportata ai suoi giusti limiti. Poiché ogni parola è menzogna, ogni gesto falsità, ogni sorriso una smorfia. Qual è il ruolo più difficile? Togliersi la vita? Ma no.. sarebbe poco dignitoso. Meglio rifugiarsi nell’immobilità, nel mutismo: si evita di dover mentire. Oppure, mettersi al riparo dalla vita. Così non c’è bisogno di recitare, mostrare un volto finto, fare gesti voluti. Non ti pare? Questo è ciò che si crede, ma non basta celarsi; perché, vedi, la vita si manifesta in mille modi diversi ed è impossibile non reagire. A nessuno importa sapere se le tue reazioni sono vere oppure false, sincere o bugiarde. Solo a teatro il problema si rivela importante, e forse neanche lì. Io ti capisco, Elisabeth. Capisco il tuo silenzio, questa tua immobilità, e perché tu abbia elevata a sistema di vita la tua assurda apatia. Capisco. E quasi t’ammiro. Secondo me devi continuare a recitare la tua parte fino in fondo. Finché essa non perda ogni interesse; e abbandonarla così, come sei abituata a fare, passando da un ruolo all’altro.
Credo che io e te abbiamo degli interessi personali comuni da discutere.
Credo che tu viva nell’insana illusione di piacere alla gente.
Credo per capire e capisco per credere. (Agostino)
Crescere è questione di trasporto.
Crying doesn’t indicate that you’re weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you’re alive.
Cum accusas alium, propriam prius inspice vitam. (Quando accusi un altro, prima esamina la tua vita)
Cum solitudo et vita sine amicis metu plena sit, ratio monet amicitias comparare. (Poiché la vita solitaria e senza amici è piena di timore, la ragione consiglia di procurarsi amicizie.)
Cuor che sospira non ha ciò a cui aspira.
Cuori neri e picche rosse? Andiamo, mi hai imbrogliato! – Ah-a… l’esperienza ti ha condizionato a pensare che tutti i cuori siano rossi e tutte le picche debbano essere nere! Le forme sono simili, quindi per la tua mente è facile recepirli sulla base delle esperienze passate piuttosto che aprirti all’idea che potrebbero essere diversi… Vediamo quello che ci aspettiamo di vedere, non necessariamente che cosa c’è in realtà; non è un caso che i bambini che non hanno mai giocato a carte superino sempre il test. E allora ci chiediamo quante altre cose ci siano proprio di fronte a noi: segni, suoni, profumi che non riusciamo a sentire solo perché non ci siamo… abituati. La buona notizia è che se ripeteremo il test lo supererai. Una volta consapevole che possono esistere cuori neri e picche rosse, ti sarà facile saperli percepire. La struttura del tuo cervello è come un sistema di strade statali: è facile andare da una città all’altra per strade molto trafficate, ma le località intermedie che lambiscono la rete autostradale, sebbene siano lì… la maggior parte delle persone le supera sfrecciando.
Cupa, cupa notte sopra questo deserto splendente, fa' che la tua luna sorga mentr'io chiudo gli occhi. (William Blake)
Cupiditati nihil satis est. (Per l’avidità niente è abbastanza.)
Cute guys make you crazy, hot guys make you drool, cool guys make you daydream. But funny guys make you fall in love without ever knowing it.

De gustibus aut bene aut nihil.
Dear God, please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life. Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind. Erase the will nots, may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart. Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life. And most of all, Dear God, I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart and my life all the “am nots” that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough. Amen.
Dear Lord, so far today, I’m doing all right. I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or self-indulgent. I have not whined, complained, cursed, or eaten any chocolate. I have charged nothing on my credit card. But I will be getting out of bed in a minute, and I think that I will really need your help then.
Debbe ancora uno Principe mostrarsi amatore delle virtù, dando recapito alli uomini virtuosi e onorare gli eccellenti in un'arte. Appresso debbe animare li sua cittadini di potere quietamente esercitare gli esercizi loro, e nella mercanzia e nell'agricultura e in ogni altro esercizio degli uomini; e che quello non tema di ornare le sue possessioni per timore che gli sieno tolte, e quell'altro di aprire uno traffico per paura delle tasse; ma debbe preparare premi a chi vuol fare queste cose, e a qualunque pensa, in qualunque modo, ampliare la sua città o il suo stato". (Niccolò Machiavelli, Il Principe, 1513)

Defeat should never be a source of discouragement but rather a fresh stimulus. (Robert South)

Del resto era allegro, come sempre; la sua popolarità era al culmine. Nessuno di noi poteva sospettare che cosa stava covando sotto la cenere della sua apparente allegria.

Di tutte le umane debolezze l’ossessione è la più rischiosa. E la più stupida.
Dicono che nel cryo-sonno la maggior parte del cervello cessi l’attività, ma non la parte primitiva. La parte animale. Per questo io sono ancora sveglio.
Did I want too much? Did my own hunger blind me to the ties that bound them to their faith? Am I only now, shadowed by war, all moorings gone, alone enough to see the light?
Did you ever stop to think and forget to start again? (A. A. Milne)
Diecimila ‘zero’ non valgono un solo ‘uno’.
Difficile dire se il mondo in cui viviamo sia una realtà o un sogno.

Diplomazia: la via più lunga tra due punti.

Dopo aver vissuto anni nell’oscurità, scorgere un po’ di luce può renderti felice. Strani pensieri invadono la tua mente, ed è meglio abbandonarsi. Che c’è?

O scenderai nella fossa con le vene piene di vite non vissute?

E aveva imparato che lo scopo, in quelle risse scolastiche, non era segnare dei punti in materia di stile ma costringere l'avversario ad arrendersi, il che voleva dire fargli male più di quanto gliene faceva lui. Sapeva inoltre, che bisogna essere ben decisi a farlo, se si vuole far male a un altro, e aveva anche scoperto che non erano poi molti a esserlo, quando si arrivava al dunque. Ma sapeva, quanto a sé, di avere tutta la decisione necessaria.
E' con sgomento paralizzato che scopri dentro di te un estraneo uno con le tue braccia, le tue gambe, i tuoi occhi un insonne irrequieto estraneo che continua a camminare continua a mangiare continua... a vivere.

E cos’è la maschera se non la morte? “Morire significa essere una maschera – scrive Shakespeare – perché chi non ha vita di un uomo, è soltanto la maschera di un uomo.” Ma la morte non è forse il non io? Non è forse l’altro da sé? Perciò Dioniso è la maschera: egli è l’ebbro danzante, il fuori di sé. La maschera impedisce l’espressione individuale: indossandola io sono non io, sono l’altro. “Io è un altro”, scriveva Rimbaud. E’ quanto l’attore può dire di sé, se è attore: io è un altro. Indossando la maschera l’attore indossa il destino; ma il destino è compiuto solo all’atto della morte. Pertanto egli indossa la morte: la morte dell’io. Ché questo è la morte; morte dell’io, nascita del sé.
E così, arrivato il bel giorno, non deve mancare un uomo che mi ami così tanto da svegliarmi a forza d’amore quando farò l’addormentata, che butti giù la porta del bagno quando lo starò facendo aspettare troppo, che non abbia paura di essere ogni tanto un vampiro sotto qualche luna, e che sia capace di esserlo ovunque e comunque e non sempre nel letto come i morti. Un uomo che non smetta di esserlo con me perché si immagina che non voglio, ma che mi costringa a volerlo fare anche se io non voglio, a tutte le ore e in qualsiasi posto, comunque e ovunque, sotto i ponti, sulle scale antincendio, nel gabinetto di un aereo mentre la gente dorme in mezzo all’Atlantico, e che pure nelle tenebre esteriori o negli epiloghi più ciechi sappia sempre che sono io quella che è con lui, e che sono io e nessun’altra l’unica che è stata fatta su misura per renderlo felice ed essere felice con lui fino a quello schifo di morte.
E' impossibile godere a fondo dell'ozio se non si ha una quantità di lavoro da fare. (Jerome Klapka Jerome)

E invece io, essendo povero, ho soltanto i miei sogni e i miei sogni ho steso sotto i tuoi piedi. Cammina leggera, perché cammini sopra ai miei sogni.

È una cosa curiosa la morte di una persona cara. È come salire le scale al buio per andare in camera da letto e credere che ci sia ancora uno scalino. Il tuo piede cade nel vuoto e c’è un nauseante momento di tetra sorpresa. (Lemony Snicket – Una serie di sfortunati eventi)
E' una gran cosa quando realizzi che hai ancora l'abilità di sorprenderti.
E venne il giorno in cui il rischio di rimanere chiuso in un bocciolo divenne più doloroso del rischio di sbocciare.

E’ assurdo dividere le persone in buone e cattive. Esistono solamente persone simpatiche e noiose. (Oscar Wilde)
E’ bello avere un sogno. I sogni aiutano a superare i momenti difficili.
E’ bello sapere di poter pensare a qualcuno. Anche se sai di non essere pensato a tua volta. Sai di avere un punto fisso in qualunque momento. Sai dove devi guardare. Il problema nasce quando non hai più nessuno a cui pensare.
E’ bello sapere quello che vuoi, così puoi ottenerlo.
E’ difficile capire in che direzione stia la felicità, giusto? Eppure, quando gli allievi te lo chiedono... devi indicare loro il punto esatto in cui essa si trova. Senza esitazione.

E’ sempre interesse di qualcuno promuovere nemici.
E’ solo l’inizio della fine.
E’ un segno di classe rifiutare qualcosa che fa venire l’acquolina in bocca.
E’ una che parla poco, ha la dote rara dell’ascolto. Sa cogliere la tenerezza delle cose e restituirla quando serve, nella vita come nella poesia.
E’ una lunga storia. E non posso essere io a raccontartela.
E’ una merda. E’ sentimentale, è emotivamente disonesta, implode nel nulla assoluto, mi ha annoiata. Non hai attinto al tuo inconscio creativo.
E’ vitale penetrare nei servizi di intelligence del nemico. Spingerli nell’irreale, come dire.

Ehm, senta, io tendo ad elaborare le cose verbalmente, quindi… crede di poter mettere in parole ciò che ha fatto?

Era la mia speranza. Mi teneva attiva, mi lasciava il desiderio.. e lui l’ha bruciata così.
Era un sentimento che dovevi provare... il desiderio di salvare una vita che ti sta a cuore... misto alla tristezza e alla paura che si prova nel perderla.
Era una persona come le altre, che soffriva in silenzio per la sua solitudine, tentava di giustificare le proprie azioni, fingeva di essere forte quando invece era molto debole, e si mostrava debole allorché si sentiva forte, aveva rinunciato a ogni passione in nome di un lavoro rischioso, ma ora, giunta quasi alla fine, aveva progetti per il futuro e pentimenti per il passato.

I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again. (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

Guai a non pentirsi mai.
Guarda laggiù: c’è la vita. Accade, si perpetua attorno a noi, continuamente. Per me è una cosa bellissima. Dimmi il tuo sogno segreto. - Non sono molto portato per queste cose. - Oh, avanti… tutti ne abbiamo uno. Quel sogno che si confida solo dopo qualche bicchiere.
Guardare davvero non è vedere. Si può sentire senza percepire, ma avvertendo; io sento che c'è qualcosa nell'aria, lo avverto, mi manca. E' un rumore sordo il suono della lontananza, sembra una foglia mossa dal vento, è come sentire il suo respiro sulle tempie, un bacio delicato sotto l'occhio, le palpebre si socchiudono e i pensieri si appendono ad un filo distante, i movimenti si rallentano e... la pelle, morbida.
Guardo fuori, ma non so cosa vedo.
Guidi fino a cinquanta dollari. Senza meta.

Half my life is over and I have nothing to show for it. Nothing. I am thumbprint on the window of a skyscraper. I’m a smudge of excrement on a tissue surging out to sea with a million tons of raw sewage.
Happiest are the people who give most happiness to others!
Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.
Happiness comes in many forms. In the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else’s dreams come true, or in a promise of hope renewed. It’s OK to let yourself be happy, because you never know how fleeting that happiness might be.
Happiness depends upon ourselves. (Aristotle)

Have the courage to act on your dreams - leave behind you the internal forces that hold you back.
Have you been sick? You lost weight. - Really? Whatever weight I lost, you found, pal.
Have you ever had a dream that seemed so real when you woke up you didn't know what to believe? What would you do if what you thought was true wasn't, and what you thought wasn't true was? Would you retreat into your dreams with the hope of finding a more perfect reality? Sometimes life is stranded in a dream, and the only way to wake up is to face what lies are hidden in your soul. And you can only hope that in those moments of dark reflection, that you are not alone.
Have you hit a brick wall? Aim higher and jump over it.

Here is the thing about the future. Every time you look at, it changes, because you looked at it, and that changes everything else.

(F. Serragnoli)
Ho imparato una cosa, studiando la gente: il coraggio e la stupidità non sono caratteristiche che si escludono a vicenda. Anzi, potrei sostenere che in alcuni casi sono un tutt’uno.
Ho sbagliato. Sono cresciuta abbastanza da ammetterlo.
Ho sconfitto i due demoni della procrastinazione e della distrazione.
Ho scoperto che quasi tutto ciò che è stato scritto sull’amore è vero. Shakespeare ha detto: “il viaggio termina quando gl’innamorati s’incontrano”. Ah, che pensiero straordinario.. io non ho mai sperimentato nulla di neanche vagamente simile a questo, ma sono più che disposta a credere che a Shakespeare sia accaduto. Credo di pensare all’amore più di quanto in realtà si dovrebbe. Resto sempre sbalordita dal potere assoluto che ha di alterare e definire la nostra vita. È stato sempre Shakspeare a scrivere "l'amore è cieco". Ecco, questo so che è vero. Per alcuni, del tutto inesplicabilmente, l'amore svanisce. Per altri semplicemente l'amore è perduto. Comunque l'amore può anche essere trovato, magari solo per una notte. E poi c'è un altro tipo d'amore, il più crudele.. quello che quasi uccide le sue vittime. Si chiama “amore non corrisposto”. Di quello, io sono un'esperta. La maggior parte delle storie d'amore è fra persone che si innamorano l'una dell'altra. Ma il resto di noi? Quali sono le nostre storie? Quelli di noi che ci innamoriamo "da soli". Noi siamo le vittime dell'amore unilaterale. Noi siamo i disgraziati fra gli innamorati, i non amati, i feriti in grado di camminare, gli handicappati senza il parcheggio riservato. Sì, avete di fronte un individuo di questa specie. E io ho amato volontariamente quell’uomo per più di tre, infelici anni. Assolutamente gli anni peggiori della mia vita. I natali peggiori, peggiori compleanni, capodanno passato fra lacrime e valium. In questi anni in cui sono stata innamorata, ho avuto i giorni più bui della mia vita. Tutto perché sono stata maledetta dall’innamoramento per un uomo che non mi ha mai amata e mai mi amerà. Oddio, quando lo vedo.. il cuore va all’impazzata, la gola si stringe, non riesco più a deglutire.. tutti classici sintomi..
Ho sempre pensato che l’ultimo giorno dovesse essere il più bello della vita
Ho sempre pensato, e lo penso ancora, che se tu dai tutto te stesso per qualcosa in cui credi veramente. Non ha importanza se vinci o perdi, finché tu rischi tutto, metti tutto davvero in gioco. E io questo l’ho fatto. L’ho fatto con la mia vita, l’ho fatto col baseball.. ma non con te. Non l’ho mai fatto con te. E mi dispiace.
Ho smesso di credere che ci fossero una forza del bene e una forza del male fuori di noi. E sono giunta alla convinzione che bene e male sono nomi per ciò che fanno le persone, non per quello che sono. La sola cosa che possiamo dire è che questa è una buona azione perché aiuta qualcuno, o che quest'altra è cattiva perché fa del male a qualcuno. Le persone sono troppo complesse perché le si possa etichettare.
Ho trovato un parco molto bello. Mi sono seduta su una panchina ed ho mangiato un panino che avevo acquistato. Era molto gustoso. E qui accadde qualcosa. Qualcosa difficile da descrivere. Seduta là, sola in un paese straniero, lontano dal proprio lavoro e da tutte le persone conosciute, mi venne un sentimento... Fu così che mi venne in mente qualcosa, qualcosa che non avevo mai conosciuto e che aspettavo da sempre. Ma non sapevo cos’era. Forse qualcosa che avevo dimenticato, o qualcosa che mi è mancata per tutta la vita. Posso solo dire che sentii nello stesso tempo felicità e tristezza. Ma non una grande tristezza. Perché mi sono sentita viva. Sì. Viva.

How come you fell in my life? - I didn’t fall in your life. I fell from the sky. = No, you fell from a bridge. I was there, remember? - I was there too, smarty-pants. I’m talking about before… Before, I fell from the sky. = What do you mean ‘fell from the sky’? From a plane? - No, from the sky. Up There. That’s where I live. I’m an angel. If you prefer. = An angel? - Yes. A real one. Coming from the sky. With great white wings and all that… = Uh yeah? And where are your great white wings and all that? - You don’t expect me to unfold them here, in the middle of the cafe. = A chain-smoking angel? - What do you care, if I smoke? I’m immortal. = Okay then. You’re an angel. I’m open-minded. You’re an angel. All right? - Fine. Start with this assumption. It cannot hurt. = Agreed. So… How are things going up there? What’s up? - Nothing special. Business as usual. = But tell me! I’d like to understand how things happen over there. - You don’t believe me, do you? = Angela… Admit that a beautiful, 6 feet tall, blond girl, smoking like a factory, is not the usual picture of an angel. And you don’t even want to show me your wings. How am I supposed to believe you? - You’re annoying… I told you I can’t unfold them. First, they’re too large. And second… I only unfold them when I’m leaving. When my mission is complete. But you’re so stupid the mission is far from complete. You’re so slow at figuring things out… I’m not going home anytime soon. = What mission? - I have come to help you. = For now, you’ve only made things worse. - You’re the one making things worse! Lying all the time, to everybody! Especially to yourself… Not even small lies here and there. You’re lying to yourself at a very deep level. And you’re afraid. Of yourself, of everything, all the time. You’re airtight… like an oyster who’d be afraid of the sea. = An oyster? You came down from the sky to tell me I’m like an oyster? - Yes. I came to help you understand what’s going on in here. To help you figure out who you are. So that you accept it. = That’s all? - It’s good enough. = And how’s that different from a psychoanalyst? - I won’t cost you 100 Euros. = Okay. Let’s say you’re an angel. How does it go? You’re on your cloud, and they call you for an assignment? - Quite simplistic, but that’s the idea, yes… = And so they call? ‘Angela! Can you please handle case number 12,737?’ - No, you don’t get to choose your mission. It’s imposed on you. Actually that’s a good thing… Because if each angel got to choose his assignment, the planning department would never manage it. = Ah yes… the planning department. Planning is important. Right… And after that? - Well… after you got your mission, you go to the dressing room. It’s my favorite part. = And what outfit did you choose? - Bitch! = Bitch fits you really well. - Gee, thanks! I’ve already tried all the other styles. I figured it’d be fun to try something more weird. = You’ve been doing that job for long? - 300 years. Approximately. I’m still young. Why are you laughing? = This story is so great! I never heard a girl who had so much imagination. You should write books, or encyclopedias… We would make so much money! - You still don’t believe me, is that it? = No. Hey, Angela… - There nothing worse for an angel, than being rejected by its mate… and returning from a mission without having completed it. = Please, don’t be like that… Understand me… I’m a loser. I’m in trouble… and a bitch would be sent from the sky to help me? - Yes. What’s the problem? = The problem is that, here on Earth, we have a hard time believing in what we can’t see. I don’t know when was your last visit, but this world has become very materialistic. And… and… and… there are satellites, science, tv… People don’t really believe in miracles. The need proof. You understand? Don’t you have a small proof? - You men are all the same… Always needing proof. Always needing to be reassured. = That’s what you keep blaming me for: my lack of self-confidence. At least, show me that that I can trust you. And maybe it’ll help me trusting myself. - Don’t tell anyone… I don’t want to be fired because of you. = I swear. - Shhh! = I… I promise. - Satisfied? = How… How did you do that trick? - Rha! Fuck! You gotta be kidding! You asked for proof. I provided. And you don’t believe me! = How did you do that trick? - You really are a tool… Opening your mind won’t take a miracle, but a jackhammer. = How come? I… I haven’t seen it clearly. How you did the cigarette trick. I… I wasn’t focused. I wasn’t looking. And… Angela. I’m asking nicely… Please, do it again. Please… It’s the last time I’m asking you. - Okay. Garcon! Another coffee and a vodka tonic for this man, please.

I don’t appreciate being kept waiting.
I don’t believe that God made man in his image. ’Cause most of the shit that happens comes from man. No, I think man was made in the Devil’s image. And women were created out of God. ’Cause after all, women can have babies, which is kind of like creating. And which also accounts for the fact that women are so attracted to men... ’cause let’s face it... the Devil is a hell of a lot more interesting! Believe me, I’ve slept with some saints in my day, I know what I’m talking about. So the whole point in life is for men and women to get married... so that God and the Devil can get together and work it out. Not that we have to get married. God forbid.
I don’t chase after anyone anymore. If you want to walk out of my life, I’ll hold the door open for you.

I have learned that to be with those I like is enough. (Walt Whitman)
I have lived to thank God that all my prayers have not been answered. (Jean Ingelow)
I have no heart-beat. I have no need to breathe. There are no electrical impulses in my body. What animates you no longer animates me. - What does animate you then? Blood? How do you digest it then if nothing works? - Magic? - Oh, come on Bill! I may look naive but I’m not, and you need to remember that. - You think that it’s not magic that keeps you alive? Just ’cause you understand the mechanics of how something works, doesn’t make it any less of a miracle... which is just another word for magic. We’re all kept alive by magic, Sookie. My magic’s just a little different from yours, that’s all.

I hope you always find a reason to smile.
I imagine that yes is the only living thing. (e. e. cummings)
I just get the feeling my life lacks forward momentum, you know? Like everything is moving by so quickly that time just seems to stop. Sometimes I can’t believe the shit that spills out of my mouth. So while I talk about God knows what, I let my eyes drift across the room, as my mouth allows thoughts to drop out of my brain and roll off my tongue like gumballs, I imagine all the things in life that never were, and all the things that could have been.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me. (Noel Coward)

I like to think about the life of wine. How it’s a living thing. I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing; how the sun was shining; if it rained. I like to think about all the people who tended and picked the grapes. And if it’s an old wine, how many of them must be dead by now. I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I’d opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive. And it’s constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks, like your ‘61. And then it begins its steady, inevitable decline. And it tastes so fucking good.
I look for what needs to be done. After all, that’s how the universe designs itself. (R. Buckminster Fuller)

I loved Sarah, Charlie. It was mine, that love. I owned it. Even Sarah didn’t have the right to take it away. I can love whoever I want. But she thought you were pathetic. That was her business, not mine. You are what you love, not what loves you.
I loved you until you became words and stories, poetry and dreams; immortal in every book and every sunrise.
I make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes. (Sara Teasdale)

I ran into a stranger as he passed by, / "Oh, excuse me Please" was my reply. / He said, "Please excuse me too; Wasn’t even watching for you." / We were very polite, this stranger and I. / We went on our way and we said good-bye. / But at home a different story is told, / How we treat our loved ones, young and old. / Later that day, cooking the evening meal, / My daughter stood beside me very still. / When I turned, I nearly knocked her down. / "Move out of the way," I said with a frown. / She walked away, her little heart was broken. / I didn’t realize how harshly I’d spoken. / While I lay awake in bed, / God’s still small voice came to me and said, / "While dealing with a stranger, common courtesy you use, / But the children you love, you seem to abuse. / Look on the kitchen floor, / You’ll find some flowers there by the door. / Those are the flowers she brought for you. / She picked them herself: pink, yellow and blue. / She stood quietly not to spoil the surprise, and you never saw the tears in her eyes." / By this time, I felt very small, and now my tears began to fall. / I quietly went and knelt by her bed; / "Wake up, little girl, wake up," I said. / "Are these the flowers you picked for me?" / She smiled, "I found ’em, out by the tree. / I picked ’em because they’re pretty like you. / I knew you’d like ’em, especially the blue." / I said, "Daughter, I’m sorry for the way I acted today; / I shouldn’t have yelled at you that way." / She said, "Oh, Mom, that’s okay. I love you anyway." / I said, "Daughter, I love you too, and I do like the flowers, especially the blue." / Are you aware that: / If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. / But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. / And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family - an unwise investment indeed. / So what is behind the story? / You know what is the full word of family? / FAMILY= (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER, (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU! / Isn’t that neat? Fill life with love and bravery and we shall live a life uncommon. (A Stranger Passed By, Roger Knapp)

I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. (Abraham Lincoln)

I swear, I’ll make it up to you. I’m gonna change. I’ll change. I’ve learnt that I have the strength to change.

I tentativi servono quanto i successi.
I think I may be forced to burst in on you. See if blackmail will succeed any better than bribery.

I think the eyes flirt most. There are so many ways to use them. (Anna Held)
I think writing really helps you heal yourself. I think if you write long enough, you will be a healthy person. That is, if you write what you need to write, as opposed to what will make money, or what will make fame. (Ms. Walker)
I think you are stuck in that pre-relationship moment of infatuation and you need to be reminded that a relationship has many, many, many more stages. Relationships are best measures by farting. The stages of a relationship can be defined by farting. Stage one is the conspiracy of silence. This is a fantasy period where both parties pretend that they have no bodily waste. This illusion is very quickly shattered by that first shy ‘ooh, did you fart?’ followed by the sheepish admission of truth. This heralds a period of deeper intimacy. A period I like to call the ‘fart honeymoon’, where both barties find each other’s gas just the cutest thing in the world. But of course no honeymoon can last forever. And so we reach the critical fork in the fart. Either the fart loses its power to amuse and embarrass, thereby signifying true love. Or else, it begins to annoy and disgust, thereby symbolizing all that is blocked and rancid in the formerly beloved.
I thought the least I could hope for was that you would respect me.
I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am. (Sylvia Plath)
I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that weren’t in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets. (Dolly Parton)

I used to be indecisive but now I am not quite sure. (Tommy Cooper)
I vecchi, come i giovani, a volte sono grati proprio per cose da niente, sono quelli di mezzo che non sono mai grati di niente e permalosi. (Aldo Busi)
I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there’s only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.
I wanna kiss you. You don’t have to kiss me back if you don’t want.
I wanna live like there’s no tomorrow and love like I’m on borrowed time. It’s good to be alive.
I want a lifetime and I’m not gonna settle for anything less.
I want a real thing. I want an unwritten life.
I want late nights and dark rings, action and bright lights, love and heartbreak and feeling and pain. I want you. I want to breathe in life and breathe out poetry.
I want someone who says I love you every night and proves it every day.
I want someone who won’t care that I’m incapable of sitting still, that I can’t grasp the concept of cleaning and I refuse to be ladylike, someone who realizes that half of the decisions I make are usually ones I regret, and I have the right to overreact at any given moment. I want someone who knows how completely insane I am. And he wouldn’t want me any other way.
I want the excitement of watching her betray everything that's most important to her.
I want to heal her sorrow.
I want to hold your hand, laugh at your jokes, walk by your side, snuggle on the couch, look into your eyes, talk about whatever and kiss your lips every single day.
I want to inflict my pain on all of you. It’s stronger than my guilt right now.
I want to look at you and not feel so hurt by you.

I wish that all of nature’s magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of place could be photographed. (Annie Leibovitz)
I wish they would only take me as I am. (Vincent Van Gogh)
I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Goodbye.”
I won’t forget you. - I won’t let you.
I wonder what fool it was that first invented kissing. (Jonathan Swift)
I Won't Ever Change.
I would always rather be happy than dignified. (Charlotte Bronte)
I would love you in any way I could. And if we could not touch, then I would draw strength from your beauty. And if I went blind, then I would fill my soul with the sound of your voice and the contents of your thoughts until the last spark of my love for you lit the shabby darkness of my dying mind. (Abby Gewanter)
I would rather attempt something great and fail than attempt to do nothing and succeed. (Robert Schuller)
I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than closed by belief. (Gerry Spence)
I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion. (Henry David Thoreau)
I write to discover what I know. (Flannery O’Connor)
I... I had... I want to... I’d like to... - What do you want? What would you like? - This is what makes the other person go crazy. Not finishing your sentences. As if the rest is too painful to say. Not finishing your sentences is very effective. That and looking ahead and afar.
I’d learned that some things are best kept secret. (Nicholas Sparks)
I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck. (Emma Goldman)
I’d tell you to kiss my ass, but I’m pretty sure you’d fall in love, and then I’d never get rid of you.
I’d work it out. But first I got to know, are you with me? - Sure. - Sure or yes? - That’s the same thing. - No, it’s not the same thing. See, if I were to ask you to move my couch for me you’d probably say, "Sure." But if I were to ask you to look deep into my eyes... and tell me from the bottom of your heart... if it would give you great pleasure if I were to suck your cock for hours... if I may be presumptuous, you’d probably say, "Yes." See, it just implies a different level of commitment. - Ask me the question again. - Okay. - Are you with me? - Yes.
I’ll always be able to feel you. I’ll be able to find you fast. If you’re ever in trouble, that can come in quite handy.
I’ll let you lick the spoon because it tastes so nice.
I’ll tell you one thing that’s for certain. You won’t mind dying once you’ve peeked over the other side.
I’m a bird of passage.
I’m a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind.
I’m actually not funny. I’m just mean and people think I’m joking.
I’m afraid I can’t venture to express an opinion on that point.
I’m asking you to have the decency to let me try.
I’m beyond redemption. What is the point of confessing, if I don’t repent?
I’m BS-proof.
I’m competing against myself.
I’m dating a woman now who, evidently, is unaware of it. (Garry Shandling)
I’m gonna start preparing for the inevitable.
I’m hanging up the out of order sign.
I’m having a birthday party. - Oh yeah? You enjoy that, there’s gonna come a time in your life when you’re not gonna want people to know it’s your birthday. - Why wouldn’t anyone want people to know about their birthday? - Because getting old sucks. Most people don’t accomplish what they’d hope to and they realize that they are most likely not going to. They end up living these quite lives of denial, and uh... brushing birthdays under the rug just becomes a part of that. - Do you ever get scared that you could have Parkinson’s disease? - Not specifically Parkinson’s, But I’m not gonna lie, I’ve had my bouts with hypochondria. - What’s that? - That’s thinking you have diseases that you don’t really have. - Oh my God. I have that.
I’m in shape. Round is a shape… isn’t it?
I’m just interested in what makes you you.
I’m just saying there’s a reason things are the way they are. - Yeah. It’s called justice.
I’m kind of a specific type. I’ve never been kissed, Will. It’s the simplest thing. A kiss. It’s the doorway to everything else, you know? Promise, hope and future with someone. What does that say about me? I’m 40 and I haven’t even taken those baby steps yet. - What that says to me is that you are a beautiful, amazing woman, whose heart is just too big for most men to stand. - You really think I’m pretty, Will? - Inside and out.
I’m like the cockroach - I persist.
I’m never gonna stop falling in love with you.
I’m not a genius. I’m just a tremendous bundle of experience. (R. Buckminster Fuller)
I’m not a one in a million kind of girl. I’m once in a lifetime kind of woman.
I’m not a procrastinator. I just prefer doing all my work in a deadline-induced panic.
I’m not addicted to reading. I can quit as soon as I finish one more chapter.
I’m not anti-social, I’m selectively social. There’s a difference.
I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.
I’m not bossy. I just have better ideas.
I’m not confused. I’m just well mixed. (Robert Frost)
I’m not easy - I’m highly amenable.
I’m not easy but we can discuss it
I’m not going to die because I failed as someone else. I’m going to succeed as myself. (Margaret Cho)
I’m not going to dignify that statement with an answer.
I’m not going to give up on a good thing because I’m scared that something bad might happen.
I’m not good with anger - I go straight to depression.
I’m not overweight, I’m undertall.
I’m not overweight. I’m just nine inches too short. (Shelley Winters)
I’m not saying it was easy the spot you were in, because it wasn’t. But in the future, no matter how uncomfortable things are, if it affects us, you got to tell me.
I’m not spoiled… my owner is just well-trained.
I’m not that obsessed with making representations of ugliness. Everything I’ve seen is beautiful. (Otto Dix)
I’m not wearing any socks, and I have the panties to match.
I’m on a 90-day wonder diet. Thus far, I’ve lost 45 days.
I’m really sorry.. - Don’t be. There’s no shame in dying.
I’m running down my list of dumb things to say right now.
I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
I’m so busy doing nothing that I’ve no time to do anything.
I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.
I’m sorry to say this but... those who are most worthy of love are never made happy by it.
I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there’s room for everyone and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls - has barricaded the world with hate - has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in man - cries for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say: ’Do not despair.’ The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you and enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate, only the unloved hate. Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! You, the people, have the power - The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful - to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason - a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us unite! (The Great Dictator)

If the viewer knows there is poison in one of the coffee cups, or even in both, which makes for a conversation between two poisoners, then this little device turns the drinking of coffee into a dramatic situation, out of which and on the basis of which dramatic dialogue can develop. Without the addition of some special tension, some special situation, there is no dramatic dialogue.

Dramatic dialogue brings about an action, an affliction, a new situation, out of which a new dialogue develops, and so forth. (Friedrich Durrenmatt)

If you’ve invested enough effort and energy to get discouraged, you’re well on your way to success. Discouragement is a certain weigh station on the road to any worthwhile achievement. If you know and care enough to be discouraged, you’ve made considerable progress. Learn what the discouragement has to teach you and then continue moving forward. It may seem as though you’ll never make it, but in reality you’re already there. Discouragement tempers and hardens you; it does not stop you. Reflect on your discouragement and you’ll discover that it is a result of your commitment. You’ve already invested your time, your effort, your life. Soon, you’ll reap the full reward of that investment. Let discouragement spur you on. Motivation is born of desire. The stronger the desire for something, the stronger the motivation. Endeavor to keep the promises we make to ourselves. We deserve to be treated with the same love and respect that we would give to others.

Invece di comprarti un oggetto che a te piacerebbe avere, ti do qualcosa di mio, di veramente mio. Un regalo.

Io non credo nel matrimonio. No, davvero non ci credo. Voglio essere ben chiara su questo. Lo considero, al suo peggio, un gesto politico ostile. Un modo usato dagli uomini dalla mente ristretta per tenere le donne in casa e fuori dai piedi. Un gesto ammantato da una parvenza di tradizione e pervaso del conservatorismo più ripugnante. A suo meglio, è una beata illusione. Sono due persone che si amano sul serio e che non hanno idea di quanto stiano per rendersi infelici a vicenda. Ma.. ma: quando due persone sanno questo e decidono, con gli occhi bene aperti, di guardarsi in faccia e di sposarsi lo stesso, allora non mi sembra né un gesto conservatore né un'illusione. Lo trovo anzi radicale, coraggioso e molto romantico. A Diego, e Frida.
Io non ho certezze, Charlie, ma so che troppo spesso in questa vita la gente non ha ben chiaro quello che vuole e quello che fa e quel che di conseguenza crede di meritare. È talmente condizionata da quello che pensa di essere o di rappresentare che le sfugge quello che è realmente. Io ho grandi progetti per noi, Charlie. E non aspetterò in eterno, ma un po’ aspetterò. E, quando sarai lontano, voglio che tu ci rifletta e.. che ritorni da me.

La felicità non è di questo mondo. Le ricchezze possono rendere l’uno più fortunato dell’altro, ma non può farlo più felice.
La felicità non si compra.
La felicità non sta nell'essere amati: questa non è che la soddisfazione di vanità mista a disgusto. La felicità sta nell'amare, e nel carpire tutt'al più qualche illusorio istante di vicinanza all'oggetto amato.
La follia è come la gravità: basta una piccola spinta.
La forza delle donne deriva da qualcosa che la psicologia non può spiegare. Gli uomini possono essere analizzati, le donne... solo adorate. (Oscar Wilde)
La gelosia non è egoismo. È solo paura di perdere chi si ama.
La guerra è semplicemente una realtà: c'è sempre stata, sempre ci sarà.
La leggenda si rinnova, nessun percorso è impossibile.
La lettera uccide, mentre lo spirito vivifica.
La libertà comporta responsabilità.
La lingua è più tagliente della spada.
La luna si affaccia in ogni specchio d’acqua... ma una sola è la Luna vera.
La luna, la sola custode dei segreti della mia anima.
La maniera di dare val più di ciò che si dà. (P. Corneille)
La mente vede ciò che il cuore desidera.
La mia innocenza sta nell’amare il peccato.
La mia vita è stata tutta così, piena di piccoli segni che mi venivano a cercare.
La miglior cura è il tempo, perché appiana i dissidi interni e costringe le persone a valutare ciò che è successo, con un’ottica completamente diversa. Del passato si riesce a parlare con calma, in maniera chiara, comprensibile e logica, tanto che, chi racconta rimane tranquillo, mentre chi ascolta piange.
La morte non è la fine di tutto.
La musica leggera è sopportabile, ma quella difficile ha il pregio d’annoiarmi.
La musica, il mosaico dell’aria. (Marvell)
La nebbia agli irti colli / piovigginando sale / e sotto il maestrale / urla e biancheggia il mar. / Ma per le vie del borgo / da il ribollir de’ tini / va l’aspro odor de’ vini / l’animo a rallegrar. / Gira sui ceppi accesi / lo spiedo scoppiettando, / sta il cacciator fischiando / sull’uscio a rimirar / tra le rossastre nubi / stormi d’ uccelli neri / com’ esuli pensieri / nel vespero migrar.
La nebbia arriva su zampine di gatto. S’accuccia e guarda la città sulle silenziose anche, e poi se ne va via.
La noia, tetra visitatrice e non chiamata.
La nostra anima non ha che una tastiera ristretta e la vita, per quanti sforzi faccia non ottiene altro che due o tre povere note.
La nostra capacità di manipolare noi stessi perché lo zoccolo delle nostre credenze non vacilli neanche un po’ è un fenomeno affascinante.
La nostra vita è un’occasione, non farla scappare
La notte è più buia subito prima dell’alba.
La notte è silenziosa e nel suo silenzio si nascondo i sogni. (K. Gibran)
La pace è un'utopia, ma è l'utopia che muove il mondo.
La partitura è come un vaso di vetro dentro il quale brucia una candela. Il vetro è solido, sta lì, puoi farci affidamento. Contiene e guida la fiamma. Ma non è la fiamma. La fiamma è il mio processo interno ogni sera. La fiamma è ciò che illumina la partitura. La fiamma è viva. E proprio come la fiamma così la mia vita interna varia ogni sera, di momento in momento. (Ryszard Cieslak)
La passione non lascia alcuno spazio alla prudenza.
La paura è una delle emozioni fondamentali con cui noi nasciamo e che, come ogni emozione, ci serve per strutturare il nostro mondo, la nostra vita. Chi dice di non avere paura è semplicemente un incosciente, perché corre moltissimi rischi.
La percezione di ciò che è sbagliato in una qualsiasi situazione dovrebbe essere solo il primo passo verso la scoperta dei mezzi che possano correggere il problema.
La perfezione esiste.
La poesia è trovare al buio quello che non c'è. (Vittorio Gassman)
La prima cosa che impari dalle emozioni è che hanno un prezzo.
La prima risposta di una persona è ciò che pensa veramente. Non credo tu abbia mai giurato il vero.. Questo temo rimarrà un tuo problema.
La puntualità è la virtù di chi si annoia.
La rabbia e il rancore ti possono sbarrare la strada. Adesso l'ho capito. Bruciano l'aria che respiri, la vita, ti divorano, ti soffocano… ma la rabbia è reale. E, persino quando non lo è, ti può cambiare. Ti modella, ti trasforma in quello che non sei. L'unico aspetto positivo è la persona che diventerai dopo. Se tutto va bene, un giorno ci si sveglia... e si scopre di non avere paura di affrontare il viaggio. La verità è, nella migliore delle ipotesi, una storia raccontata a metà. E la rabbia, come la crescita, arriva a scatti e a strappi. E al risveglio offre un nuovo giorno alla comprensione. E una promessa di quiete.
La ricerca della verità è più preziosa del suo possesso.
La ricetta per vivere sani. Fornire all’organismo ciò che gli occorre: ossigenazione, intuizione, serenità, amore e dinamismo sciolto a contatto con la natura.
La riconoscenza è il sentimento del giorno prima.
La saggezza è un tesoro che segue il suo possessore ovunque: è leggera come l'aria ma più preziosa di mille libbre d'oro.
La scoperta richiede fortuna, inventiva e intelligenza; una sola di queste qualità non è sufficiente, sono tutte e tre necessarie.
La sera del combattimento forse sentirai una piccola fitta. È l’orgoglio che ti blocca il cervello e te lo mette nel culo. Mettiglielo tu nel culo. L’orgoglio fa solo male, non aiuta.. mai. Supera certe cagate, perché da qui a un anno, quando te la spasserai nei Caraibi, dirai a te stesso “Marcellus Wallace aveva ragione”.
La speranza non tiene a galla. Impara a nuotare contro la corrente, non a seguirla.
La strana bellezza del mondo deve di certo fondarsi sulla pura gioia. (Louise Bogan)
La sua offerta.. devo declinarla.
La sua tenacia m’insegnò una cosa: finché non si rinuncia, si può sempre sperare.
La teoria del caos suggerisce che non si possono sempre prevedere gli effetti a lungo termine delle nostre creazioni e che è quindi meglio essere aperti e flessibili.
La timidezza non è mia prerogativa, anzi più l’aggressività fa parte della mia indole.
La troppa paura dei pericoli, fa che spesso vi cadiamo. (La Fontaine)
La tv sembra tirare fuori il peggio della gente.
La vera felicità proviene da un senso di pace e appagamento interiori, che a sua volta si ottiene coltivando altruismo, amore, compassione e grazie all’eliminazione di rancore, egoismo e avidità. (Dalai Lama)
La vera persona non è colei che sa muovere bene il corpo, ma colei che si lascia movimentare dall’anima.
La vera potenza non ha niente da dimostrare.
La verità fa soffrire solo se arriva dopo una bugia.
La via che fissi intensamente è un posto lontano, significa che stai ascoltando la voce del tuo cuore.
La vita a volte ha uno strano modo di combinare le cose.
La vita è fatta anche di compromessi.
La vita è fatta di rari momenti di grande intensità e di tanti intervalli. La maggior parte della gente però non conoscendo i momenti magici finisce col vivere solo gl’intervalli. (Nietzsche)
La vita è fatta di scelte.
La vita è un sogno leggero che svanisce. (Napoleone)
La vita è una commedia per coloro che pensano e una tragedia per coloro che sentono. (Horace Walpole)
La vita si può capire solo all’indietro, ma si vive in avanti. (Kierkegaard)
La vita umana non è altro che un gioco della follia. Il cuore ha sempre ragione.
La voglia di raggiungere un sogno può superare qualsiasi ostacolo.
La vostra invidia è la mia forza.
La vostra sicurezza potrebbe essere la vostra debolezza.
L'allegria è l'ingrediente principale nel composto della salute.
L'ambizioso è schiavo di tutti: del principe, che concede gl'impieghi, del potente perché interceda, di tutti gli altri, perché non lo ostacolino.
L'amore autentico è sempre compassione e ogni amore che non sia compassione è egoismo.
L'amore è la capacità di avvertire il simile nel dissimile. (T.W. Adorno)
L'amore è la poesia dei sensi.
L'amore non ha prezzo.
L'amore si prova col sacrificio.
L'amore ti rende bella.
L'anima forte della coppia.
L'aria tiepida della primavera.
L'arte è essere naturali.
Lascia che i morti seppelliscano i morti.
Last of a dying breed
Last, not least.
Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone. (Anthony Burgess)
Laugh so hard that even sorrow smiles at you; fight so strong that even fate accepts defeat; love so true that even hatred walks out of the way; and live so well that even death loves to see you exist.
Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects. (Arnold H. Glasow)
Laughter is the sensation of feeling good all over and showing it principally in one place. (Josh Billings)
Lavora come se non avessi bisogno dei soldi. Ama come se nessuno ti abbia mai fatto soffrire. Balla come se nessuno ti stesse guardando. Canta come se nessuno ti stesse sentendo. Vivi come se il Paradiso fosse sulla Terra.
Lavoro senza gioia è ignobile. Lavoro senza pena è ignobile. Pena senza lavoro è ignobile. Gioia senza lavoro è ignobile. (John Ruskin)
Layer by layer art strips life bare. (Robert Musil)
Laziness breeds efficiency.
Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired. (Jules Renard)
Le Arti del Freddo nascono dal profondo Inverno del mio cuore.
Le cose belle si pagano.
Le cose belle sono rare, le cose rare non si trovano dovunque.
Le cose che nascondiamo sono quelle che ci assomigliano di più.
Le cose che possiedi alla fine ti possiedono.
Le cose importanti vengono dette il sale della vita; per me è più importante lo zucchero della vita.
Le cose migliori si ottengono solo con il massimo della passione. (W. Goethe)
Le cose non sono mai quello che sembrano perché cambiano continuamente. (Suragamasutra)
Le cose non sono solo cose. Le cose sono sempre cose di qualcuno.
Le cose peggiorano sempre prima di poter migliorare.
Le mamme meno sanno e meglio stanno.
Le pagine che noi presentiamo oggi non devono essere considerate compiute, definitive; esse riflettono semplicemente uno stato di conoscenze.
Le parole contano come un colpo di vento.
Le parole di conforto riescono sempre a commuovere un eroe.
Le parole son d’argento, il silenzio è d’oro.
Le persone hanno tutte due facce.
Le persone prive di mezzi si godono di più le cose che sono alla loro portata.
Le piccole cose... niente è più grande.
Le promesse, il potenziale... sono cose labili, e potrebbero non esserci più.
Le qualità che rendono bravo un agente dell’intelligence (una mente sospettosa, amore per la complessità e il dettaglio) sono le stesse qualità della persona che lei sta osservando.
Le stelle sono buchi nel cielo da cui filtra la luce dell'infinito.
Lead us not into temptation. Just tell us where it is; we’ll find it. (Sam Levenson)
Leaders don’t wait. They shape their own frontiers. The bigger the challenge, the greater the opportunity.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it. (Dwight D. Eisenhower)
Leap, and the net will appear. (John Burroughs)
Learn to relax. Your body is precious, as it houses your mind and spirit. Inner peace begins with a relaxed body. (Norman Vincent Peale)
Learn what is true in order to do what is right. (Thomas Huxley)
Learning is pleasurable but doing is the height of enjoyment. (Novalis)
Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins. (Jim Rohn)
Learning never exhausts the mind. (Leonardo da Vinci)
Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace.
Lebenslanger Schicksalschatz
Legend says, when you can’t sleep at night, it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream.
L'egoismo è sempre stato la peste della società, e quanto è stato maggiore, tanto peggiore è stata la condizione della società.
Lei crede che sia pazza. - No. No, no.. non è vero. - E se dico che non sono pazza, non serve a granché, no? E’ la geniale trovata Kafkiana. Quelli dicono a tutti che sei pazza e le tue proteste per confutarlo confermano solo quello che dicono loro. - Non riesco a seguirla, mi dispiace. - Una volta che sei dichiarato pazzo, tutto quello che fai è considerato parte di quella pazzia. Le ragionevoli proteste sono negazione; le paure giustificate, paranoia… e l’istinto di sopravvivenza, meccanismi difensivi. E’ più intelligente di quanto non sembri, probabilmente non l’aiuta.
Lei è mattiniero! - Mattiniero? Oh, signora, bisogna intendersi in proposito. In realtà mi alzo presto proprio perché sono un dormiglione. - Ah, stavolta deve spiegarsi! - Be'... se uno è mattiniero, non ha motivo, direi, di alzarsi tanto presto. La coscienza, signora... eh, la coscienza è un affar serio! Io e quelli come me dobbiamo farci in quattro tutta la vita, dobbiamo lavorare da matti per ingannarla di tanto in tanto, per concederle qualche piccola, scaltra soddisfazione. Siamo, io e quelli come me, creature inutili, e a prescindere da poche ore liete ci trasciniamo offesi e malati dietro alla consapevolezza della nostra inutilità. Ciò ch'è utile ci riesce odioso: lo sappiamo volgare e non bello, e difendiamo questa certezza come si difendono le certezze di cui si ha assoluto bisogno. E tuttavia siamo rosi dalla cattiva coscienza, a tal punto che su di noi non c'è più neppure un pezzettino di sano. A questo si aggiunge che tutto il modo della nostra esistenza interiore (la nostra concezione del mondo, la nostra maniera di lavorare) influisce in maniera orribilmente malsana, ci scalza, ci logora, e anche questo peggiora la situazione. Dobbiamo dunque ricorrere a piccoli palliativi, senza i quali ci sarebbe materialmente impossibile resistere. Così, ad esempio, un minimo di morigeratezza, di severità igienica nella propria norma di vita, è per alcuni di noi una necessità. Alzarsi presto, ferocemente presto, fare un bagno freddo e una passeggiata all'aperto nella neve... e può darsi, così, che per un'ora riusciamo ad essere non troppo scontenti di noi. Se mi lasciassi andare a quello che sono, resterei a letto -mi creda- fino al pomeriggio. Il mio alzarmi presto non è che ipocrisia. - Ma no, che dice! Io lo chiamo sapersi vincere... - Ipocrisia... sapersi vincere... si può definirlo a piacimento. La mia inclinazione alla sincerità è così tormentosamente forte, che... - Precisamente. Lei si tormenta troppo, ne sono certa. - Sì: mi tormento molto.
Lei inventa la verità? - Non ho mai fatto altro in vita mia! Senza volerlo, Contessa. Tutte quelle verità che la coscienza rifiuta. Le faccio venir fuori dal segreto dei sensi, o a seconda, le più spaventose, dalle caverne dell’istinto.
Lei non dice molte cose, non è vero? - Le cose che valgono la pena.
Lei sa cos’è il fascino: l’arte di farsi dire di sì senza aver posto alcuna domanda esplicita. (A. Camus)
L'energia senza l'intelligenza è energia sprecata.
Lentamente muore chi non rischia la certezza per l'incertezza per inseguire un sogno. (P. Neruda)
Less is more. (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe)
Less than I hoped for, more than I expected. (And So It Goes, Mark Andrus)
Let go of what’s gone. (Jules)
Let me be the one to break the silence.
Let my enemies devour each other. (Salvador Dali)
Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning. (Winston Churchill)
Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave. (Martin Luther)
Let them make the mistakes. And when your enemy’s making mistakes, don’t interrupt them.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. (Marcel Proust)
Let us permit nature to have her way. She understands her business better than we do. (Michel de Montaigne)
Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions be louder than your words.
Let your heart guide you
Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf. (Rabindranath Tagore)
Let your mind alone, and see what happens. (Virgil Thomson)
Let’s always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. (Mother Teresa)
Let’s leave the Jews out of this just for a moment. Let’s think of another minority. One that... One that can go unnoticed if it needs to. There are all sorts of minorities, blondes for example... Or people with freckles. But a minority is only thought of as one when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority. A real threat or an imagined one. And therein lies the fear. If the minority is somehow invisible and the fear is much greater. That fear is why the minority is persecuted. So, you see there always is a cause. The cause is fear. Minorities are just people. People like us.
Let’s not get carried away, I have a reputation to uphold.
Let’s play “Heads or Tails”. Heads: I’m yours. Tails: You’re mine. Game?
Lezioni di Vita: 1. La Vita non e’ sempre giusta, ma è sempre bella. 2. Se ti viene qualche dubbio, cerca di fare solo un passo avanti. 3. La Vita è troppo corta per perdere tempo odiando qualcuno. 4. Il tuo lavoro non si prenderà cura di te se ti ammali, I tuoi amici e la tua famiglia si. Non perdere I contatti. 5. Salda la tua Carta di credito ogni mese. 6. Non devi vincere ogni discussione, ma puoi sempre acconsentire dimostrando di non essere d’accordo. 7. Piangi con qualcuno. Ti farà stare meglio che piangere da solo. 8. Puoi prendertela e arrabbiarti con il Signore. Lui può sopportarlo. 9. Risparmia per quando andrai in pensione. Incomincia dalla tua prima paga. 10. E se sarai tentato da qualcosa di speciale, resistere è semplicemente inutile. 11. Fai pace con il tuo passato per non rovinarti il presente. 12. È giusto lasciare che I tuoi figli ti vedano piangere. 13. Non paragonare la tua vita con quella degli altri. Non hai nessuna idea di cosa hanno dovuto attraversare nel corso della loro vita. 14. Se una relazione deve rimanere segreta, non devi assolutamente averla. 15. Tutto può cambiare in un batter d’occhio. Ma non ti preoccupare; il Signore non sbatte mai gli occhi. 16. Respira Profondamente. Calma la mente. 17. Liberati di tutto ciò che non è assolutamente Utile, Bello o Gioioso. 18. Qualsiasi cosa che non ti uccide, ti rende sicuramente più forte. 19. È ormai troppo tardi per avere un infanzia felice. Ma la seconda parte della tua vita dipende esclusivamente da te. 20. Quando persegui ciò che realmente ami nella vita, non cercarne il motivo. 21. Accendi le Candele in casa, usa le migliori lenzuola, e indossa la più bella biancheria. Non tenerla per le occasioni speciali. Oggi è un giorno speciale. 22. Preparati al meglio, ed esci. 23. Sii eccentrico adesso. Non aspettare di essere più vecchio per vestire I colori più strani. 24. Il più importante organo sessuale è il cervello. 25. Nessuno ha il compito di farti felice se non te stesso. 26. Incornicia ogni “disastro” con queste parole “In cinque anni, quanto sarà importante?” 27. Ognuno si sceglie la propria vita. 28. Perdona chiunque e qualunque cosa. 29. Quello che la gente pensa di te non è assolutamente un tuo problema… 30. Il tempo guarisce quasi tutto. Dai tempo, tempo… 31. Per quanto una situazione sia bella o brutta, un giorno cambierà. 32. Non prenderti troppo sul serio. Nessun lo fa. 33. Credi nei miracoli. 34. Il Signore ti ama perché è cosi, e non per ciò che hai fatto o non hai fatto durante la tua vita. 35. Non aspettare domani, mettiti in mostra subito e fai più cose possibili adesso. 36. Crescere e invecchiare sconfigge l’alternativa… Morire giovani. 37. I tuoi figli hanno solo un’infanzia. 38. Alla fine l’unica cosa che è veramente importante è che tu abbia amato. 39. Esci ogni giorno. I Miracoli ti stanno aspettando ovunque. 40. Se tutti noi potessimo buttare I nostri problemi in una pila comune, ci riprenderemmo I nostri immediatamente. 41. L’Invidia è una perdita di tempo. Hai già avuto tutto quello di cui avevi bisogno. 42. E il meglio deve ancora venire. 43. Non importa come ti senti, alzati, vestiti, e fatti vedere in giro. 44. Produci. 45. La Vita non è infiocchettata, ma è pur sempre un regalo.
lf I remember rightly in such matters... all advice is useless.
lf you had not been so ashamed of it... how could you have treated her so viciously? You could not bear even the vague possibility of being laughed at. And this has proved something I have always suspected. That vanity and happiness are incompatible.
L'hai promesso tre volte. (Fight Club)
Licet rogare? (E’ lecito chiedere?)
Lieto è il ricordo dei mali passati. (Cicerone)

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. (Neale Donald Walsch)
Life comes from physical survival; but the good life comes from what we care about. (Rollo May)
Life comes from the earth and life returns to the earth. (Zhuangzi)
Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.
Life fails to be perfect, but never fails to be beautiful.
Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once. (Paulo Coelho)
Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life. (Oscar Wilde)
Life in abundance comes only through great love. (Elbert Hubbard)

Life is like riding a bicycle: to keep your balance you must keep moving.
Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.
Life is the flower for which love is the honey. (Victor Hugo)
Life is too short to argue and fight. Count your blessings, value your loved ones and move on with your head held high and a smile for everyone.
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe everything happens for a reason.
Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. (Anais Nin)
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could. (Louise Erdrich)
Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are. (Bernice Johnson Reagon)
Life’s more amusing than we thought. (Andrew Lang)
Life’s not like it is in the movies, right? - No, it’s not. Although from day one everyone conspires to tell you it is.
Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.
Light in Nature creates the movement of colors. (Robert Delaunay)
Like the eagles we have to move our wings to soar like an eagle.
L'impavido vive poco, ma il cauto non vive affatto.
L'impazienza può rovinare un grande piano.
L'indifferenza è il maggior disprezzo.
Linea d'ombra.
L'ingiustizia è nel cuore stesso dell'uomo.
L'intelligenza non si compra.
Listen closely: the only time it’s too late to change yourself is when you’re dead. Until then, you’re simply making excuses or lying to yourself.
Little by little does the trick. (Aesop)
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. (Marcus Aurelius)
Live each day as if your life had just begun. (Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe)
Live in such a way, that if someone spoke badly of you no-one would believe it.

Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around. (Henry David Thoreau)
Living alone makes it harder to find someone to blame. (Mason Cooley)
Lo sai che non c’è aspirina al mondo per un gran malditesta come te?!
Lo sai cosa c’è di bello nella verità? Tutti sanno qual è per quanto a lungo ne abbiano vissuto senza. Nessuno dimentica la verità. Si diventa solo più bravi a mentire.
Lo sai perché amo guardare il cielo un'ora prima dell'alba e un'ora dopo il tramonto? Perché posso vedere il colore dei tuoi occhi come se mi fossi vicino...
Lo sai qual è il segreto di un bluff credibile? Una volta ogni tanto devi avere le carte vincenti (Il Mistero Dei Templari)
Lo spirito è forte, ma la carne è debole.
Lo voglio dire a te, perché ormai mi fido - da molto, in verità. E te lo dico solo per sfogarmi, per condividere un po’ di pensieri e, così facendo, smussare quell’amarezza che tali pensieri provocano.
L'odio è il piacere più duraturo. Gli uomini amano in fretta, ma odiano con calma.
Logic will get you from A to B. imagination will take you anywhere. (Albert Einstein)
Look at her. It looks like she fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
Look at us, running around. Always rushed, always late. I guess that’s why they call it the human race. What we crave most in this world is connection. For some people it happens at first sight. It’s when you know you know. It’s fate working its magic. And that’s great for them. They get to live in a pop song. Ride the express train. But that’s not the way it really works. For the rest of us, it’s a bit less romantic. It’s complicated, it’s messy. It’s about horrible timing, and fumbled opportunities. And not being able to say what you need to say when you need to say it. At least, that’s the way it was for me.
Look at us. Running around. Always rushed. Always late. Guess that’s why they called it the human race. But sometimes, it slows down just enough for all the pieces to fall into place. Fate works it’s magic. And you’re connected.
Look but don't touch.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. (Albert Einstein)
Look for the good in others and you will find it.
Look within!… The secret is inside you. (Hui-neng)
Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig. (Marcus Aurelius)
Look, ten years of a loving friendship and sporadic, incredible sex, scattered with nights… so fun they explained the evolutionary purpose of talking! Not to mention the time that we’ve clocked together, listening to music, you know, driving with no destination. I guess this beautiful mess is best ended without notification. Probably better. - I’m sorry. - Don’t be. lt was a gift. An act of cowardice so complete disqualifies a person from consideration.
Look. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s different when is about one of us. Everybody has things they don’t wish to share.
Looking at you is like looking out over the grand canyon of ineptitude.
L'orgoglio precede la caduta.
Loss is nothing else but change, and change is Nature’s delight. (Marcus Aurelius)
Love actually is all around.
Love all, trust few, do wrong to no one. (Shakespeare)
Love and desire are the spirit’s wings to great deeds. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. (Henry Fielding)
Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle. (Sam Levenson)
Love can be unselfish, in the sense of being benevolent and generous, without being selfless. (Mortimer Adler)
Love can do much, but duty more. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
Love cannot be measured by how long you wait. It’s about how well you understand why you are waiting.
Love ceases to be a pleasure when it ceases to be a secret. (Aphra Behn)
Love cures people - both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. (Karl A. Menninger)
Love doesn’t make the world go ‘round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile. (Franklin P. Jones)
Love grows more tremendously full, swift, poignant, as the years multiply. (Zane Grey)
Love him and let him love you. Do you think anything else under heaven really matters? (James A. Baldwin)
Love in its essence is spiritual fire. (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)
Love involves a peculiar unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding. (Diane Arbus)
Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination. (Voltaire)
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. (Mother Teresa)
Love is a game that two can play and both win. (Eva Gabor)
Love is a great beautifier. (Louisa May Alcott)
Love is a meeting of two souls, fully accepting the dark and the light within each other bound by the courage to grow through struggle into bliss.
Love is a mutual self-giving which ends in self-recovery. (Fulton J. Sheen)
Love is a rebellious bird that no one can tame. He has never known law. If you don’t love me I love you, if I love you watch yourself! (Georges Bizet)

Love knows not distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars. (Gilbert Parker)

Love means to commit yourself without guarantee. (Anne Campbell)
Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Love planted a rose, and the world turned sweet. (Katharine Lee Bates)
Love Poem for No-one in Particular – Let me touch you with my words / For my hands lie limp as empty gloves / Let my words stroke your hair / Slide down your back / And tickle your belly / For my hands, light and free flying as bricks / Ignore my wishes and stubbornly refuse to carry out my quietest desires / Let my words enter your mind / Bearing torches / Admit them willingly into your being / So they may caress you gently / Within (Mark O’Brien)

Luck is believing you’re lucky. (Tennessee Williams)
Lucky people get opportunities. Brave people create opportunities. But real winners are those who convert their problems into opportunities.
Lui è morto, lei no. E’ una condizione a cui si può porre rimedio facilmente. Quello della vita è uno stato così... labile.
Lui è un uomo. E un artista: ha il dovere di sapere che il grande scopo dell’essere umano è comprendere l’amore totale. L’amore non sta nell’altro, ma dentro noi stessi. Siamo noi che lo risvegliamo. Ma perché ciò accada, abbiamo bisogno dell’altro. L’universo ha senso soltanto quando abbiamo qualcuno con cui condividere le nostre emozioni.
Lui ha fatto di me quello che sono oggi.
L'ultimo passo della ragione è di riconoscere che c'è un'infinità di cose che la sorpassano. (Pascal)

Ma non manca nulla, non stia a credere, non manca nulla! E’ sempre il gusto maledetto di buttarci a terra da noi stessi!
Ma perchè gli adulti non credono mai nei sogni che facevano da bambini, perchè se ne dimenticano?
Magatsuhi: lo spirito perverso.

Magnum est quod conor, difficile est quod polliceor. (E’ importante ciò che tento, è difficile ciò che prometto)
Mai aspettarsi troppo dalla vita.
Mai detto cose tanto irrazionali.
Mai dire a una donna che ha l’aria stanca.
Mai nessuna notte è tanto lunga da non permettere al sole di sorgere.
Mai soffrire per amore. Ma soffrire per crescere nella propria anima, per migliorare sempre di più.
Mai trovare scuse.
Make a MIND which never Minds, Make a HEART which never Hurts, Make a TOUCH which never Pains, Make a RELATION which never Ends.
Make It Happen.
Make the decision, then do something - no matter how small - toward accomplishing what you want.
Make today ridiculously amazing.
Make your lives a masterpiece, you only get one canvas. (E. A. Bucchianeri)
Making a big life change is pretty scary. But, know what’s even scarier? Regret.
Making things happen.
Making waves day after day is exhausting.
Male.. che parola nebulosa.. sai che cosa penso? Penso che tutti vogliono qualcosa. William vuole te. - Perché? - Perché ha in testa un’idea di come sei tu. Non credo gli interessi se sia la verità o no finché tiene in vita la sua illusione. Perciò credo che meriti quello che avrà. - Merita di essere infelice? - Perché no? Tu sei infelice, nonostante la fama e l’adulazione da poco conquistate. - Tweedy, certe volte penso che tu sia l’unico al mondo che mi capisce veramente. - Sì, certe volte io guardo te e vedo un mio riflesso. È rivoltante e.. allettante.

Marriage is about figuring out how to make it through when things change.
Marriage is give and take. You’d better give it to her or she’ll take it anyway. (Joey Adams)
Masks – She had blue skin, And so did he. He kept it hid And so did she. They searched for blue Their whole life through, Then passed right by – And never knew. (Shel Silverstein)
Mater semper certa. Pater numquam.
Math tells us three of the saddest love stories. Tangent lines who had one chance to meet and then parted forever. Parallel lines who were never meant to meet. Asymptotes who can get closer and closer but will never be together.
May I ask you a personal question? - Bill, you were just licking blood out of my head. I don’t think it gets much more personal than that.

May you always do what you are afraid to do.
May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live. (Robert A. Heinlein)
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful. And don’t forget to make some art (write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can) and somewhere in the next year, I hope you surprise yourself! (Neil Gaiman)
May your inner self be secure and happy.
Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets. (Arthur Miller)
Maybe everybody’s afraid that any admission of guilt would be seen as a sign of weakness.
Maybe I’m just... unboyfriendable.
Maybe it’s true that we don’t know what we have until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we have been missing until it arrives.
Maybe our favourite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting. (John Green)
Maybe true love is a decision. You know, a decision to take a chance with somebody. To give to somebody. Without worrying whether they’ll give anything back. Or if they’re gonna hurt you, or if they really are the one. Maybe love isn’t something that happens to you. Maybe it’s something you have to choose.
Maybe what you’ve created will help others, will be a small part of the solution. You don’t have to know how or in what way, but if you are acting with the clearest, truest heart you can find and doing the best you can to understand and communicate, this will shine like its own little lighthouse. Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining. You can either set brick as a laborer, or as an artist. You can make the work a chore, or you can have a good time. You can do it the way you used to clear dishes when you were thirteen or you can do it as a Japanese person would perform a tea ceremony, with a level of concentration and care in which you can lose yourself, and so in which you can find yourself. (Anne Lamott, “Bird by Bird”)
Me attentum praebebo. (Mi mostrerò attento)
Meden Agan. (Senza Eccessi.)
Megio ‘ver dó schei de mona in scarsela che passar par massa svegio.
Meglio essere fortunati che ricchi.
Meglio mangiare la preda dopo averla fatta ingrassare.
Meglio sovrani all’inferno che servi in paradiso.
Meglio tacere e dare l’impressione di essere scemo, che aprir bocca e togliere ogni dubbio.
Meglio tardi che mai.
Meglio un sassetto donato per amore che un diamante per dovere.
Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others. (Rosa Parks)
Men also have “periods”; they are caused by a drop in testosterone, which leads them to become angrier or depressed.
Men always want to be a woman’s first love - women like to be a man’s last romance. (Oscar Wilde)
Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes, and it’s up to women to stomp the shit out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with. (Dr. Ernie E.)
Men are such visual creatures, darling.
Men can starve from a lack of self-realization as much as they can from a lack of bread. (Richard Wright)
Men enjoy the happiness they feel. We can only enjoy the happiness we give. They are not capable of devoting themselves exclusively to one person. So to hope to be made happy by love is a certain cause of grief.
Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of science. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Men stumble over pebbles, never over mountains. (Marilyn French)
Men succeed when they realize that their failures are the preparation for their victories. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Men will melt.
Mens sana in corpore sano.

Metuitur umbra ab infantibus. (Il buio è temuto dai bambini)
Mi accorgo sempre quando qualcuno mente a se stesso, ok? Ma sono suggestionabile e sbaglio frequentemente quando qualcuno mente a me.
Mi addormentai, ma il sonno era di continuo turbato da un susseguirsi di visioni ossessive e umilianti che rispecchiavano una realtà molto avvilente. Erano sogni spietati che mi sconvolgevano per la loro crudezza e che si scolpivano nella mia coscienza con un senso doloroso di feroce e implacabile determinazione.
Mi è rimasto un solo nervo calmo e tu stai irritando proprio quello.
Mi mancheresti anche se non ci fossimo conosciuti.
Mi sembra ingiusto presumere che io non sia in grado di imparare.
Mi sento così colpevole! Non ti ho portato altro che disgrazie! - Mi hai portato l’amore... il resto ne è soltanto il prezzo. Vale un milione di volte di più!
Mica ci staremo dicendo cose interessanti? - Tu hai detto che non immagini quello che penso di te. - Ah, già.. sì. Ma non sei tenuto a rispondere adesso. - D’accordo. - Però, se tu avessi un’opinione, sarei curiosa. - Tu sei una torre d’avorio. - Oh.. - Oh, non prendere questo come un’offesa! Mi dispiace, ok? Mi dispiace! Lo sai che idea dai? L’idea di uno di quei grandi dipinti che si vedono sopra i caminetti. Certe parole sono state inventate per descrivere le donne come te. - Cioè quali? - Spietata. - Oh.. - Ehi? Inflessibile. - Secondo te sono inumana? - No, secondo me sei formidabile. - Cioè gelida, surgelata come in un dipinto? - Niente affatto. Però io credo che usi la tua forza per separare te stessa dal mondo. Ma.. è elettrizzante quando le tue difese si abbassano e non sei isolata. Eccola, secondo me, la tua miscela vincente. Anzi, micidiale direi. - Io non riesco a decidere se, oh Dio, ce l’hai con me.. o se sei l’unica persona al mondo che mi abbia capita. - Non ce l’ho con te.. - No? - No.
Migliaia, milioni di individui lavorano, producono e risparmiano nonostante tutto quello che noi possiamo inventare per molestarli, incepparli, scoraggiarli. E’ la vocazione naturale che li spinge; non soltanto la sete di denaro. Il gusto, l’orgoglio di vedere la propria azienda prosperare, acquistare credito, ispirare fiducia a clientele sempre più vaste, ampliare gli impianti, abbellire le sedi, costituiscono una molla di progresso altrettanto potente che il guadagno. Se così non fosse, non si spiegherebbe come ci siano imprenditori che nella propria azienda prodigano tutte le loro energie e investono tutti i loro capitali per ritrarre spesso utili di gran lunga più modesti di quelli che potrebbero sicuramente e comodamente ottenere con altri impieghi. (Luigi Einaudi)
Mihi hominum species. (Sono innumerevoli gli aspetti degli uomini.)
Militares viri gloriantur vulneribus. (I soldati si gloriano delle ferite)
Minds are like parachutes. They only function properly when open.
Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature. (Saint Augustine)
Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.
Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. (Bruce Lee)
Molte sono le cose che si getterebbero via se non fosse per il timore che qualcun altro le possa raccogliere.
Molte volte mi son scoperto quasi ad amare la confortante morte. (John Keats)
Molti considerano l'imprenditore una feroce tigre da abbattere. Altri lo considerano una mucca dalla quale mungere senza discrezione. Pochi capiscono quello che è veramente: un potentissimo cavallo da tiro che porta dietro di sé un pesantissimo carico. (Winston Churchill)
Moltissimi parigini mi hanno definita una Femme Fatale. Ma se non percepisco lo stesso tipo di attrazione verso di loro, per me, non c'è storia. (Hanayori Dango)
Molto bene. Aspetterò. Ma verrà un momento in cui le chiederò di aiutarmi con un problema, che non le costerebbe molto, ma che avrebbe un certo valore per me. Non si sa mai cosa le serba il futuro. Gli amici possono essere nemici e i nemici amici.
Momentum can be difficult to establish. And that’s what makes it so valuable. Because once you have it going in your favor, momentum can be hard to stop. With momentum on your side, small efforts can bring big results, and those big results can lead to even bigger ones. Yes, momentum takes some effort and commitment to put into motion. And it is very much worth the trouble. Take the time and make the effort to start something positive. Even though, in the short term, it would be easier and more comfortable to just do nothing, look past those immediate concerns. Look ahead to that point where momentum kicks in, and consider the value of putting it to work in your favor. Then get up, get going, and get to work on building that momentum. Start something positive, and create some valuable momentum. You’ll be able to ride that momentum as far as you can imagine. (Ralph Marston)
Money can’t buy love, but it improves your bargaining position. (Christopher Marlowe)
Money grows on the tree of Patience.
Money is the sixth sense that makes it possible to enjoy the other five. (Richard Ney)
Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will. (Nelson Mandela)

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Most of the things worth doing in the world had been declared impossible before they were done. (Louis D. Brandeis)
Most of us know how to say nothing; few of us know when.
Most people fail, not because of lack of desire, but, because of lack of commitment. (Vince Lombardi)
Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel. (Kevin Trudeau)
Most people want to be delivered from temptation but would like it to keep in touch. (Robert Orben)
Most people would rather give than get affection. (Aristotle)
Most people yearn for something exceptional, something so inspiring that they’d risk everything for that passion, but few would act on it. It’s very powerful. And it’s intoxicating to be around someone so alive.
Mostra è vero, una lotta tra Bene e Male, con la vittoria finale del Bene. Però quanto è antipatico, mal mostoso, contorto questo Bene impersonato dall’Uomo Pipistrello. E quanto aride e grigie ci sembrano le sue motivazioni. Joker al contrario, è colorito, divertente, imprevedibile, briccone all’ennesima potenza. Mette in pratica quello che ognuno cerca di ricacciare nel proprio inconscio (sparare in mezzo agli occhi delle persone moleste).
Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly. (Stephen R. Covey)

Motivation will almost always beat mere talent. (Norman Ralph Augustine)

Move your body stretch your mind.
Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states. (Carol Welch)
Mr Corleone is a man who insists on hearing bad news immediately.

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe. (Lao Tzu)

Music should strike fire from the heart of man and bring tears from the eyes of woman. (Ludwig Van Beethoven)
My advice if you insist on slimming: eat as much as you like – just don’t swallow it. (Harry Secombe)
My advice is to go into something and stay with it until you like it. You can’t like it until you obtain expertise in that work. And once you are an expert, it’s a pleasure. (Milton Garland)
My bed is a magical place where I suddenly remember everything I was supposed to do.
My boy, one small breeze doesn’t make a wind storm. (John McGraw)

My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today.
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. (Maya Angelou)
My problem is, whenever I think about the problems of the past, I want to go back and fix them, creating at least one parallel universe where something went right. Of course, that will always create new problems, or there’d be no drama in that story either.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. (Dalai Lama)
My reputation grows with every failure. (George Bernard Shaw)

Ne divitiae quidam vitam beatam comparant. (Neppure le ricchezze danno la felicità.)
Né la medicina né la psicologia né la psicanalisi possono penetrare il segreto della pazzia. Forse solo la letteratura? O la religione? La filosofia? La pazzia non è solo un’infermità ma un destino. Essa cambia la verità della vita; non è un gioco linguistico, un’anomalia fortuita, un cancro mentale. Questo può essere solo il principio. La pazzia è una meta dell’intelligenza, è un’opportunità perseguita fino all’estremo. Finché rivela il caso maligno. Ma arrivati davanti all’abisso gli scienziati si fermano. La pazzia può essere compresa solo in una coscienza totale, cioè una coscienza che provi il brivido e la magia di superare sé stessa.

Nel corso della mia vita i dolori e i fallimenti hanno sicuramente superato di gran lunga i trionfi. Eppure tutto questo non solo non ha distrutto la mia fiducia nella ragione, nella verità, nella solidarietà umana, ma anzi, al contrario, l’ha resa indistruttibile. Io vedo in tutti voi la speranza del mondo e con tutto il mio cuore vi ringrazio.
Nel mio dizionario non esiste la parola impossibile.
Nel peccato c'è già la sofferenza.
Nel perseguire il male, ci si allontana sempre da Dio, ma c’è un prezzo da pagare.
Nell’arena vi sono solo due scelte: vincere o morire.
Nella coppia la donna è mossa dal neurone, l’uomo dall’ormone. E il rapporto funziona finché entrambi decidono di raccontarsi la stessa bugia. Se la bugia non è più la stessa, l’uomo soccombe. Senza onore.
Nella morte non ci sono incidenti né coincidenze né contrattempi e non ci sono scappatoie.
Nella vita, se uno vuol capire, capire sul serio come vanno le cose a questo mondo, deve morire almeno una volta.

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. (Hal Borland)
No woman has ever told you that you have an almost barbaric insensitivity? That you seem to have lapsed into some final cynicism, where you actually believe that, not only does everyone think the way you do, but only you have the courage to express it? That you seem horribly certain everyone else is sort of pretending when they talk about love or seem to care for anything outside their own anus? No one’s ever said that sort of thing to you? (I’ll Do Anything)
No, dico, guardati: sei ad un tale stadio di stacanovismo che ormai la tua capacità di socializzare è praticamente nulla.
No, honey. Reeling him back in is the easiest thing in the world.

Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it. (George Halas)
Nobody's perfect (but me)
Noi siamo quello che facciamo.
Non abbandonare nessuno al suo destino.
Non aderisco all’opinione di nessun uomo: ne ho alcune per conto mio.
Non amare ciò che è perfetto, ma rendi perfetto ciò che ami.
Non attribuire le tue perversioni al mio modo di essere. Ho già tanti problemi.
Non avrei dovuto sentirlo dalla bocca di un essere dal cuore impuro come il tuo... una volta rivelato suona sgradevole.
Non bisogna mai dimenticare i motivi per cui si è andati via.
Non bisogna toccare le lacrime delle donne... sono sacre.
Non c’è amore, ma solo prove d’amore.
Non c’è niente da fare, quando gli prendono queste crisi. Oh, non voglio dire che sia spesso com’era stasera. Di solito è a posto, soltanto un po’ silenzioso e triste... così triste che mi si spezza il cuore a vederlo... è come un bambino che sia stato punito per qualcosa che non ha commesso.
Non c’è niente di sbagliato nell’avere delle regole. Tutto il mondo ci convive. L’intero universo rispetta le regole. - Beh, Frank, questa è l’ultima cosa che i ragazzi avranno da me. C’è un’unica regola che conosco, ed è che da un momento all’altro la vita può finire. Ti può essere tolta per sempre. E allora a che servono tutte le regole?
Non c’è nulla di più comico di chi esige rigore dagli altri senza darsi la pena di chiederlo innanzi tutto a se stesso.
Non c’è nulla di più forte del cuore di un volontario.
Non camminarmi davanti, potrei non seguirti. Non camminarmi di dietro, potrei non essere la tua guida. Camminami di fianco e sii solo mio amico.
Non capisco come si possa passare dinanzi a un albero, e non esser felice di vederlo; parlare con un uomo, e non esser felice di amarlo. E quante belle cose vi sono a ogni passo: guardate il bimbo, guardate l’aurora di Dio, guardate gli occhi che vi guardano e vi amano.
Non c'è limite al peggio.
Non ci interessa la possibilità di una sconfitta. (Regina Vittoria)
Non ci sono segreti meglio custoditi di quelli che conoscono tutti.
Non comprendo affatto le ragioni di quelli come te che lo osteggiano, ma le accetto senza battere ciglio in ossequio a un basilare principio di libertà.
Non contare mai gli errori ma le vittorie. Infatti i primi ti rendono triste, le seconde gioioso. E se sei solare, vinci.
Non credere a nessuno perché nessuno è come credi.
Non credo ci sia nulla di male ad usare tutte le carte che hai. Tutti sfruttano quello che hanno a disposizione.
Non credo più che esista sulla terra una cosa che si chiama sonno! E’ solo sottoterra, che si può dormire! Ci si deve sentire così in pace... finalmente... senza più alcun timore!
Non demolire senza poi edificare.
Non devi essere d’accordo con me per forza, ma è molto più facile.
Non devi renderti conto di niente.
Non dia mai a nessuno il tempo di pensare. Lei stabilisce il tono della discussione e arriva subito al punto.
Non dirmi che non lo posso fare e non dirmi che non può essere fatto.
Non disturbiamo l’acqua.
Non dovrei starti vicino? - Ma non così! Guardandomi così! Mi sento tutta, non so, come appiccicata; sì, sì, da questa tua mollezza di timidità supplichevole. L’hai negli occhi, nelle mani. - Perché ti amo...
Non dovreste morire prima di aver vissuto.
Non è degli agili la corsa, né dei forti la guerra. Perché il tempo e il caso raggiungono ogni uomo.
Non è degli agili la corsa, né dei forti la guerra. Perché il tempo e il caso raggiungono ogni uomo.
Non è mai troppo tardi per tornare indietro.
Non è nel mio interesse dirlo, ma… lasciare quando ancora si vince, non è lo stesso che lasciare.
Non è possibile dire alla primavera: "Spero che tu arrivi presto e che ti trattenga molto." Si può solo dirle: "Vieni, benedicimi con la tua speranza e resta più tempo che puoi."
Non era un tipo insensibile, ma sapeva da molto tempo che l’articolo destinato a renderlo famoso sarebbe stato probabilmente una tragedia per qualcun altro.
Non esiste il fato. Anche se la sorte gioca contro di te il futuro è ciò che ci creiamo noi.
Non Esiste Salvaguardia Contro Il Senso Naturale Dell’Attrazione.
Non esistono risposte, solo scelte.
Non esser triste se a volte il cielo piange, perché può far più male un caldo e piccolo raggio di sole di un’impetuosa e fredda tempesta.
Non est fortis ac strenuus vir qui laborem fugit. (Non è forte e valoroso l’uomo che evita la fatica)
Non ho casa al di fuori del cuore, se non il suolo per camminare ed il cielo per guardare le stelle.
Non ho motivo per ritenermi certa della sua considerazione, ma anche se provasse una tale predilezione, saremmo delle sciocche a pensare che... in una situazione del genere è meglio usare la testa.
Non ho scambiato lucciole per lanterne. Era un urlo di luce liberato dal taglio dell’amore. L'invisibile è diventato arte.
Non importa che tipo di persone diverrete. Se riuscirete a diventare ciò che sperate , o se non ci riuscirete. L’importante è che piacciate a voi stessi. Che non mentiate a voi stessi. Che non vi inganniate mai, e che abbiate sempre il coraggio delle vostre convinzioni.
Non importa cosa dici, ma come lo dici.
Non invidiam sed amicitiam benevolentia comparat. (La benevolenza non procura invidia, ma amicizia)
Non la forza, ma la costanza di un alto sentimento fa l'uomo superiore. (Nietzsche)
Non lascerei una cosa del genere alla sorte. Non lo faccio: me la creo, la fortuna.
Non le posso dire tutto, lo capisce. Ci sono cose da tacere... Anche se lei neanche può immaginarsi il perché, sorella, ricordi: ci sono cose che vanno al di là della capacità d’intendere. La sua certezza è frutto di emozioni, non di fatti.
Non le soddisfa la mia offerta? - A non piacermi non è l’offerta.. è lei.
Non m’importa se hai altre donne.. solo, non trattarmi come loro.
Non m’importa. Mi basta che tu mi sia vicino.
Non meriti di essere nemmeno un vegetale, perché anche il carciofo ha un cuore. (Il Favoloso Mondo di Amelie)
Non mi accoppiavo con pecore o sorelle. - Perché, non ci stavano?
Non mi hai ancora detto il tuo nome. - Ne ho molti, ma siamo tutti molto più complicati dei nostri nomi...
Non mi hai solo seccato le lacrime. Mi hai inaridito l’anima. Sei molto cattivo.
Non mi piace essere una conclusione scontata.
Non mi ucciderà. Preferisce soffocarmi con la sua manipolazione orribilmente oppressiva e poi aspettare che sia io a tagliarmi la gola.
Non nasce in un'ora il vero amore.
Non pensare che mi abbassi a favellare teco. (Il Club della Magia)
Non perderti mai nessun momento di dolcezza: il bello della vita è costruirsi ricordi.
Non piangere quando tramonta il sole: le lacrime ti impedirebbero di vedere le stelle.
Non possiamo andare in un posto più tranquillo? Non riusciamo neanche a parlare.. Che cosa ti fa credere che voglia sentirti parlare?
Non precludo niente a priori e do la possibilità di riscattarsi nei miei confronti.
Non prenderti troppo sul serio.
Non pretendiamo che le cose cambino se continuiamo a farle nello stesso modo. La crisi è la miglior cosa che possa accadere a persone e interi paesi, perché è proprio la crisi a portare il progresso. La creatività nasce dall’ansia, come il giorno nasce dalla notte oscura. È nella crisi che nasce l’inventiva, le scoperte e le grandi strategie. Chi supera la crisi supera se stesso senza essere superato. Chi attribuisce le sue sconfitte e i suoi errori alla crisi, violenta il proprio talento e rispetta più i problemi che le soluzioni. La vera crisi è la crisi dell’incompetenza. Lo sbaglio delle persone e dei paesi è la pigrizia nel trovare soluzioni. Senza crisi non ci sono sfide, senza sfide la vita è routine, una lenta agonia. Senza crisi non ci sono meriti. È nella crisi che il meglio di ognuno di noi affiora perché senza crisi qualsiasi vento è una carezza. Parlare di crisi è creare movimento; adagiarsi su di essa vuol dire esaltare il conformismo. Invece di questo, lavoriamo duro! L’unica crisi minacciosa è la tragedia di non voler lottare per superarla. (Albert Einstein)
Non puoi capire cos’è l’inganno finché non vieni ingannato.
Non puoi costringere la gente a fare le cose controvoglia.
Non raccontare balle ad un ballista.
Non riconoscerebbe il divertimento neanche se gli cagasse in faccia.
Non riguarda me.. riguarda te. Vediamo. Coraggio. Mmh.. che cosa mi trattiene? Credo siano le parole “moralmente ripugnante”. - Fammi vedere. - Chiudi gli occhi. Chiudi gli occhi. Chiudi.. gli.. occhi. Sei al sicuro. Ti devi rilassare. Non voglio baciarti. Lui si pentirà da morire di averti perso. Quindi, smettila di preoccuparti. Dimentica il passato. Dimentica la sofferenza. E ricorda sempre.. che incredibile donna sei. Tu fa’ questo.. e lui si accorgerà di ciò che ha perso.
Non rispettare le regole, dettale.
Non sai essere leale con una sola donna. Leale sì, fedele.. no. - Purtroppo sono fisiologicamente incapace di fedeltà. - Oh, davvero? - Sì, e un dottore di mia conoscenza me l’ha confermato. - Comoda questa diagnosi.. - La fedeltà è importante per te? - La lealtà è importante per me. Sai essere leale? - Con te? Sempre.
Non sempre ciò che appare complesso è in realtà più complicato di ciò che appare ordinato.
Non sempre i primi sono dei vincitori, spesso si tratta solo di individui nati o collocati vicini ai traguardi.
Non servono prove quando si ha il sesto senso.
Non si applaude mai un tenore per essersi schiarito la voce.
Non si ha coraggio se non si ha paura.
Non si lotta seguendo il fair play contro chi regole non ne ha (neanche mezza). La crudeltà si combatte solo con mezzi anche più crudeli.
Non si possono giudicare i fatti di ieri con i criteri di oggi.
Non si possono tradire le lacrime d'una madre.
Non si può andar via da se stessi solo spostandosi da un posto all’altro. Non c’è rimedio a questo. (Ernest Hemingway)
Non si può arrivare alla prosperità scoraggiando l'impresa, non si può rafforzare il debole indebolendo il più forte, non si può aiutare chi è piccolo abbattendo chi è grande, non si può aiutare il povero distruggendo il ricco, non si possono aumentare le paghe rovinando i datori di lavoro, non si può progredire serenamente spendendo più del guadagnato, non si può promuovere la fratellanza umana predicando l'odio di classe, non si può instaurare la sicurezza sociale adoperando denaro imprestato, non si può aiutare continuamente la gente facendo in sua vece quello che potrebbe e dovrebbe fare da sola. (Abramo Lincoln)
Non si può avere tutto, se non quando non si ha più niente. - Ah, senti? Quest’è proprio il caso nostro! Dunque noi abbiamo tutto? - Eh, no, perché vorreste avere ancora qualche cosa. Quando davvero non vorrete più niente, allora sì.
Non si vince con la forza un avversario più forte.
Non siamo mai contenti, perché cerchiamo sempre quello che non c’è.
Non so come siano andate le cose tra voi né come stiano adesso, ma se sei pronta a metterti in gioco anche a costo di una profonda delusione vuol dire o che lo ami alla follia o che in fondo sai che anche una minima speranza ci può essere.
Non solo mi avete offesa sistematicamente in tutti i modi possibili ed immaginabili, ma mi offendevate ogni volta che tentavo di ripristinare la correttezza delle cose. Spero possiate passare una gradevole serata con un'altra dama.
Non sono abbastanza forte... da lottare per i miei sentimenti.
Non sono arrivata dove sono arrivata nella vita facendo sempre delle scelte ragionate. E tu cos'hai fatto? Tu che sai tutto? Non hai mai fatto in vita tua qualche cosa che non fosse molto sensata? Ma che sentivi che dovevi fare, a cui non ti potevi opporre? Io sono sicura di sì. Perché nessuno diventa forte se non l'ha fatto. E io so che tu sei forte.
Non sono d’accordo con quello che dici, ma lotterò fino alla morte perché tu possa continuare a dirlo. (Voltaire)
Non sono lacrime! E' la pioggia che cade dal soffitto... (Love me Knight)
Non sono poi così male se hai occasione di conoscermi bene.
Non sono teso. Piuttosto molto vigile, terribilmente vigile.
Non sprecare lacrime nuove per vecchi dolori. (Euripide)
Non sprecate tempo a cercare gli ostacoli: potrebbero non essercene. (Franz Kafka)
Non t’ho chiesto niente, non voglio sapere niente. Risparmiami soltanto la vergogna di sentirti sempre giurare il falso.
Non ti tormentare per le piccole cose, e tieni duro! E’ questo il segreto del successo, lo sai, signorina debuttante?
Non troverai mai uno zingaro che non vuole farsi trovare.
Non tutte le donne sono fatte per essere madri.
Non vale la pena amare chi rinuncia all’amore.
Non vedere il diavolo più brutto di quello che è.
Non vi può essere amicizia tra l’uomo e la donna. Vi può essere la passione, l’ostilità, l’adorazione, l’amore, ma l’amicizia no. (Oscar Wilde)
Non voglio dimenticare i ricordi dolorosi. Non voglio dimenticare i ricordi felici. Voglio custodirli tutti con amore. Voglio rimuginarci a lungo, prima che le cellule del mio corpo siano tutte cambiate. Voglio riflettere a lungo sui momenti di gioia, e su quelli di ravvedimento. Mi sforzerò di riuscirci.
Non volevo toglierti queste illusioni radicate così profondamente.
None of this would have happened, if the lies hadn’t come together. They always do.
None of us can change our yesterdays but all of us can change our tomorrows. (Colin Powell)
None so deaf as those that will not hear. None so blind as those that will not see. (Matthew Henry)
Normally I wouldn't bother with this, but at the moment a little luck is very much required, so I thought what the hell, you just never know...
Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs. (Ansel Adams)
Not to have control over the senses is like sailing in a rudderless ship, bound to break to pieces on coming in contact with the very first rock. (Gandhi)
Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. (W. T. Purkiser)
Notate qualcosa nella sua deposizione? - Che ripete le stesse cose. - Esatto: che ripete le stesse cose, parola per parola. Chi dice la verità, a volte sbaglia parole, è naturale. Un bugiardo ha studiato prima cosa deve dire e anche quando è sfinito dice sempre le stesse parole.
Note to self: I am doing the best I can with what I have in this moment and that is all I can expect of anyone, including me!
Nothing can be filled full unless it can be filled in the first place, and to be capable of being filled requires that we know what it means to "be".
Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love. (Billy Graham)
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. (Thomas Jefferson)
Nothing else like it.
Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work. (Booker T. Washington)
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Nothing happens unless first we dream. (Carl Sandburg)
Nothing has more strength than dire necessity. (Euripides)
Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise. (George Washington Carver)
Nothing is too hard, nothing is impossible, as long as you want to do something you can do it. Don’t wait for the world to accept it, it’ll come around.
Nothing is worth more than this day. (Johann von Goethe)
Nothing is worth more than this day. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
Nothing lasts forever. So live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the drama, rake chances, and never have regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.
Nothing like a little judicious levity. (Robert Louis Stevenson)
Nothing spreads like fear.
Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence. (Leonardo da Vinci)

Nothing touches a work of art so little as words of criticism: they always result in more or less fortunate misunderstandings. (Rainer Maria Rilke)
Nothing will work unless you do. (Maya Angelou)
Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Work, continuous work and hard work, is the only way to accomplish results that last. (Hamilton Holt)

Nothing’s gonna harm you, not while I’m around.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind. (Bruce Lee)
Now a soft kiss - Aye, by that kiss, I vow an endless bliss. (John Keats)
Now is the operative word. Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream. You don’t need endless time and perfect conditions. Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating. (Barbara Sher)
Now is the time for us to shine. The time were our dreams are within reach and possibilities vast.
Now, that’s very funny. That’s someone approaching hysteria. That’s someone bent over, hands on their thighs, panting heavily just to recuperate from the laughter that may have even brought them to tears. (Talking about someone texting “hahahah”)
Nulla di grande è stato fatto senza passione.
Nulla è piccolo di ciò che è fatto per amore.
Nulla esiste di più singolare, di più scabroso, che il rapporto fra persone che si conoscano solo attraverso lo sguardo: ogni giorno, ogni ora s'incontrano, si osservano e nello stesso tempo, costrette per civiltà o per bizzarria personale a insistere nella finzione, serbano un contegno indifferente e staccato, non si salutano né scambiano parola. Tra loro si forma un fluido d'inquietudine e di curiosità esacerbata, un isterico bisogno, inappagato o innaturalmente represso, di conoscenza e di mutuo scambio, e soprattutto, infine, una sorta di ansioso riguardo: poiché l'uomo ama l'uomo e lo onora finchè non è in grado di giudicarlo; e dall'incompleto conoscersi nasce il desiderio.
Number one is the best. Number two is the first loser.
O
O muori da eroe o vivi tanto a lungo da diventare il cattivo.
O vergine cogli l’attimo che fugge, / Cogli la rosa quando è il momento, / che il tempo, lo sai, vola / e lo stesso fiore che sboccia oggi, / domani appassirà.
O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive! (Walter Scott)
Observe everything. Judge nothing. (David Colella)
Obstacles are what we see when we take our eyes off the goal. (Rita Davenport)
Obstacles can’t stop you, problems can’t stop you, most of all other people can’t stop you. The only one who stops you is yourself.
Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. (Michael Jordan)
Occhi. I tuoi. Puntati su di me. Veleggiano lontano. Ridono. Parlano. Cercano. Occhi d'amore. Occhi di chi abita il mondo, di chi sa parlare alla mia anima, di chi può farti impazzire di gioia e dolore, di chi conosce tristezza e allegria. Occhi di chi può farti toccare stelle lontane anni luce. Occhi di chi vive, di chi parla alla luna e di chi sa amare.
Occhio di falco.
Occhio non vede, cuore non duole.
Ocean of Anger. All of us, as women, have developed a reservoir of resentment and anger, and these reservoirs put together form an ocean, and this ocean is available for all of us to draw from. It holds the collective power of every women who has ever been wronged in an inappropriate remark.
Odierò Se Potrò, Altrimenti Amerò, Controvoglia.
Odio e amo. Forse chiederai come sia possibile; non so, ma è proprio così e mi tormento.
Odio la luce del giorno. E’ come un occhio accusatore! No, abbiamo rinunciato al giorno, in cui vive la gente normale... o meglio, è il giorno che ha rinunciato a noi. Notte perpetua... tenebre della morte anche in vita... questo è l’ambiente che si addice alla colpa! Tu credi di potervi sfuggire, ma io non sono così sciocco! E trovo che la luce artificiale è più adatta al mio lavoro... la luce dell’uomo, non quella di Dio... il debole tentativo dell’uomo per comprendere se stesso, di esistere per se stesso, nelle tenebre! E’ un simbolo della sua vita; una lampada che brucia in una stanza di ombre in attesa!
Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart. (Henry Ward Beecher)
Of all things visible, the highest is the heaven of the fixed stars. (Nicolaus Copernicus)
Of that freedom [of thought and speech] one may say it is the matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedom. (Benjamin N. Cardozo, 1937)
Offenders are subject to a fine according to the law.
Oggi seren non è, doman seren sarà, se non sarà seren, si rasserenerà.
Ogni creatura sulla terra quando muore è sola.
Ogni cuore di donna possiede una chiave legata ad un segreto. Scoprilo e il suo cuore sarà tuo.
Ogni donna ha esattamente la vita sentimentale che vuole. Sai una cosa? Io sono d’accordo. Ma mi rifiuto di credere che questo sia quello che vuoi. Da quando sei bambina ti sei sempre preoccupata di quello che pensano gli altri.. adesso dimmi, tu cosa pensi: è l’uomo per te? Allora corri da lui.
Ogni esperimento che è interesse sulla vita è sempre portato a termine a nostre spese.
Ogni giorno cambia la luna, ogni giorno se ne impara una.
Ogni giorno come una vita intera.
Ogni grande civiltà nasce dalle ceneri della sua distruzione. (Will Durant)
Ogni lasciata è perduta.
Ogni lasciata è persa.
Ogni mia azione come se fosse l'ultima della mia vita.
Ogni minuto che passa è un’occasione per rivoluzionare tutto completamente.
Ogni morte lascia un vuoto che va colmato.
Ogni nostro gesto, ogni nostra azione dalla più banale alla più nobile… tutto fa parte del sadico disegno della morte che conduce alla tomba.
Ogni persona ha tre categorie, o strati, di moventi. Il primo è quello che si chiama strato del conscio-esterno. È lo strato dei moventi di cui ci rendiamo conto e che siamo disposti a riconoscere apertamente. Il secondo strato è quello che si chiama del conscio-interno. Comprende tutti i moventi di cui noi ci rendiamo conto ma che per un motivo o per l’altro non siamo disposti a riconoscere di fronte agli altri. Veniamo al terzo strato, quello del cosiddetto inconscio-inammesso. I moventi di questo strato ci spingono ad agire ma noi non ci rendiamo conto che sono loro le cause delle nostre azioni. Il test delle associazioni verbali rivela gli impulsi non espressi a parole che si trovano al secondo e al terzo strato e di cui non siamo mai disposti o non siamo mai in grado di parlare con gli altri. (Richard Powell – “Vacanze Matte” ovvero “Pioneer Go Home”)
Ogni uomo che indietro rimane indietro viene lasciato.
Ogni uomo è in potere dei suoi fantasmi fino al rintoccare dell'ora in cui la sua umanità si desta. (William Blake)
Ogni uomo è un progetto da realizzare. All’infinito. Bisogna avere il coraggio di camminare sul filo della spada. Finché corri resti in equilibrio, se ti fermi cadi da un lato o dall’altro. Io preferisco correre finché non mi scoppia il cuore.
Ogni volta che abbiamo costruito un futuro non ci siamo fermati a vederlo diventare passato.
Ogni volta che la gente è d’accordo con me provo la sensazione di avere torto.
Ognuno di noi nasce in un’atmosfera d’idee e di credenze, elaborata da tutta l’umanità anteriore; ognuno di noi porta, senza pur saperlo, un elemento più o meno importante alla vita dell’umanità successiva. (G. Mazzini)
Oh dear God please, please stop talking. I’m trying desperately to ignore the treacly sweet inanity of your asinine conversation but now I’ve got bile in my mouth and I will hold my tongue no further.
Oh ricordi segreti, fuori delle strade di tutti i ricordi!
Oh, anni fa, in un momento di geniale lucidità, giurai di evitare i balli etnici.
Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself!
Oh, if somewhere there were a being strong and handsome, a valiant heart, passionate and sensitive at once, a poet’s spirit in an angel’s form, a lyre with strings of steel, sounding sweet-sad epithalamiums to the heavens, then why should she not find that being? (Gustave Flaubert)
Oh, love will make a dog howl in rhyme. (Francis Beaumont)
Oh, ma sei tu?! - Beh, adesso che lo sai, pensi che ci vedremo tutte le sere?
Oh, my Lord. What is to become of me? I’ve lost my ability to smile at bastards. (smiles) Still got it.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. Then again, practice makes perfect.
Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them.
Oltre all’abilità nella vita ci vuole anche culo.
Omicidio Colposo: manca la volontà di uccidere, ma succede per negligenza, imprudenza, imperizia, ecc.
Omicidio Doloso: ci sono volontà e consapevolezza. C'è quindi un dolo, elemento essenziale.
Omicidio Preterintenzionale: c'è la volontà di compiere un reato, ma il risultato è più grande.
Omnibus, quorum mens abhorret a ratione, semper aliqui terror impendet. (Sempre qualche terrore incombe su tutti quelli la cui mente si allontana dalla ragione.)
Omnis ars naturae imitatio est. (Ogni arte è imitazione della natura.)
On advice of counsel
Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.
Once in your life, if you are very lucky, you will meet the person who divides it to the time before you met her and the time after. (Victor Levin)
Once they stop talking to you, they start talking about you.
Once you begin to change, so will the world around you.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world. (Elie Wiesel)
Once you get past my charm, good looks, intelligence and my sense of humor, I think it’s my modesty that stands out.
Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen. (Ralph W. Emerson)
One always tends to overpraise a long book, because one has got through it. (E. M. Forster)

One of my favorite poems. It's a poem that Benjamin Elijah Mays would always recite, and he called it "God's Minute." And it goes something like this: "I have only just a minute, only 60 seconds in it, forced upon me, can't refuse it, didn't seek it, didn't choose it. But it's up to me to use it. I must suffer if I lose it, give account if I abuse it. Just a tiny little minute, but eternity is in it." (Ronald Sullivan Jr.)

It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll. I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. (William Ernest Henley)

p????? d’?d??? e????ta f???t?d?? p?????? (Coming to many [paths] in the wanderings of careful thought) è una bellissima immagine per indicare il travaglio mentale brancolando al buio con dubbi, gli andirivieni del pensiero, le sue sterili circonvoluzioni, gli aggiramenti, gli sbandamenti, gli smarrimenti, le indecisioni, gli inceppi, i pericoli: è l’errare dentro una ragnatela inestricabile di pensieri, fino a bloccarsi in aporia davanti a un bivio, a un trivio, come davanti a mille bivi è l’errare fino all’errore, il vagare a tentoni nei meandri del pensiero, un labirinto mentale, un labirinto aperto come il deserto, più pericoloso di un labirinto reale.

Quando amore e dovere coincidono.. allora la grazia è dentro di te.
Quando cerchi una cosa ne trovi altre.
Quando ci si innamora si perde l’equilibrio dei propri sentimenti. Finché si finge e ci si dimostra migliori di quanto si è, non si è veramente innamorati.

Per questo dicono che amare è un po’ come essere privati del proprio cuore.

Quasi tutti gli uomini vivono, fisicamente, intellettualmente o moralmente, entro il cerchio d’una parte assai ristretta del loro essere potenziale. Fanno uso d’una piccolissima porzione della loro coscienza possibile e in generale delle loro risorse spirituali, più o meno come un uomo che contraesse l’abitudine di usare e muovere, del suo intero organismo, soltanto il dito mignolo. Situazioni d’emergenza e crisi ci dimostrano che possediamo risorse vitali assai superiori a quanto supponessimo. (William James)

Recall the things that have held you back. And imagine how you now can get beyond them. Think of the problems that have frustrated you so. And imagine how you can now rise above them. Look at how far you’ve come. And imagine how far you can now go. Think of all that you’ve learned. And imagine what you can now do with that knowledge. Consider all you’ve done in the past year. And imagine what you’ll now be able to do. You’re now in a better position than ever to imagine the very best. And what you can imagine will lead to what you can be. (Ralph Marston)
Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design. (Charles Eames)
Regalami un tuo sguardo e dipingerò il cielo, regalami un tuo respiro e spazzerò le nuvole, regalami un tuo sospiro e non esisterà più il rumore del mare, regalami un tuo sorriso e non avrò più bisogno del sole!
Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small , like when we do a bad thing, for a good reason. Some are bigger, like when we let down a friend. Some of us escape the pangs of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret, because we're looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past. And sometimes we bury our regret, by promising to change our ways. But our biggest regrets are not for the things we did... but the things we didn't do. The things we didn't say that could save someone we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that's headed their way.

Anch’io vorrei che tu lo fossi; è certo che tu probabilmente faresti qualcosa di utile con la mia vita e questo non va. -Potresti sempre sposarti. -Hmm... è quel "sempre" che mi fa paura. -Come dice il proverbio "il mare è pieno di pesci". -Sì, ma io non potrei mai sposare un pesce: mi ritroverei di sicuro con una vecchia trota. (Oscar Wilde)
Sapere cos’hai, sapere cosa ti serve, sapere di cosa puoi fare a meno – questo è il controllo delle giacenze.
Saprò mai chi sono io per amare davvero?
Sarà amore soltanto quando tu sarai il coltello con il quale scaverò nella mia anima.
Sarà che sono vecchio e stanco, ma le speranze di scoprire che cosa stia realmente accadendo sono così assurdamente remote che la sola cosa da fare è infischiarsene e darsi da fare. Meglio essere felici che avere la verità in tasca. - Ah.. e tu lo sei? - No. - Eheh.. e qui cadono tutti i discorsi!
Sarai messa in gabbia. - Se la gabbia mi piace, non dovresti darti pensiero. - Mi ero cullato in un’immagine.. beh sì.. affascinante, del tuo futuro. Mi divertivo molto a progettare grandi cose per te, che non prevedevano niente del genere. Non dovevi cadere così facilmente o così presto. - Come cadere? - Mi fa male, come se fossi caduto io stesso.
Sarei davvero nei guai se mi venisse il sospetto che, in fondo, è meglio vivere senza stress e tensione.. e che non c’è alcun bisogno di correre continuamente qua e là.. perché esiste un modo migliore di vivere.
Sarò il tuo incubo peggiore.
Save Our Souls.
Say Less Mean More.
Say something nice.

Scegliere il momento adatto significa risparmiare tempo. (Francesco Bacone)
Scherzavo. - L’ho capito. - Non hai riso. - Non faceva ridere. - No. E perché non hai riso tanto per leccarmi il culo? - Ho pensato che non avesse bisogno che io le leccassi il culo, perché sicuramente ci sono persone che glielo leccano ventiquattrore al giorno e ho pensando che non leccandole il culo in qualche modo avrei fatto più colpo che non leccandoglielo. - Assolutamente giusto. E’ strano, ci si distacca un po’ dalla realtà quando si è famosi.
Scientists estimate that humans have been on earth only so long enough that everyone is at least 32nd cousins.

Scrivere è l'unico modo di aspettare qualcuno senza farsi del male.
Scusi, ma lei non conosce abbastanza la vita per parlare così, sorella. - Ah.. io la conosco, invece... - Conoscerà le regole, ma non basta. - So quello che non sono disposta ad accettare. - Ognuno accetta ciò che gli tocca in sorte e se ne fa una ragione.
Se ami desideri la felicità altrui.
Se ancora non l’hai capito, vuol dire che te lo meriti.
Se aspetti ancora un po’, perderai l’occasione.
Se devi chiederlo, allora non sei ancora pronto per saperlo.

Se i gigli nascessero al rovescio; se le radici guardassero le stelle, e il morto non chiudesse gli occhi, saremmo come cigni.

Se la aiutano a entrare in un’altra verità, lontana dalla sua, pur così labile e mutevole...
Se la scienza c’insegna qualcosa, c’insegna ad accettare in nostri fallimenti come i nostri successi, con calma, dignità e classe.
Se mai due furono una cosa sola, certo quelli siamo noi.

Se non hai mai tentato, non hai mai vissuto.
Se non riesci a pensare a nulla di appropriato da dire, limita le tue osservazioni al tempo.
Se parli di fiducia, vuol dire che non c’è.
Se pensi di cavartela così, ti sbagli di grosso. - Prego, quando vuoi... a patto che un bel giorno tu riesca a passare dalle parole ai fatti.
Se per vivere devi stare seduto e zitto… allora alzati, grida e muori!
Se potessi far morire qualcuno col pensiero, quello saresti tu.
Se prendi quel cane, le dici che la conosci meglio di quanto lei conosca se stessa. - E allora? - Allora.. beh, è meglio che non ti sbagli.
Se puoi toccare l’orizzonte sei prossimo alla fine del tuo viaggio.
Se riesci a mantenere la calma quando tutti gli altri la perdono... è molto probabile che tu non abbia compreso la situazione.
Se rubi da una persona sei un ladro. Se rubi da più persone la puoi chiamare una ricerca.
Se sei bravo a fare una cosa, mai farla a gratis.
Se sei importante, ti aspettano.
Se servi noccioline, i clienti saranno scimmie.
Se si camminasse solo in discesa e in pianura.. sarebbe troppo facile. Quasi deprimente.
Se smetti di scommettere non hai niente da perdere.
Se ti senti sola conta le stelle… vedrai che non è così.

Se tu sei superiore, sono contenta di essere nella mia inferiorità.
Se tu, per qualche arcano motivo che esula dalla mia comprensione non lo vuoi più, è meglio che lo lasci.

Se urli tutti ti sentono; se bisbigli ti sente solo chi ti sta vicino; ma se stai in silenzio solo chi ti ama ti ascolta.
Se vivere fosse pensarti, io non morirei mai.
Se Voi comprendete l'ossessione, sapete che non cambierò mai idea.

Search others for their virtue, and yourself for your vices. (R. Buckminster Fuller)
Searching for that big happy moment in life, how many special little moments will we let pass us by?
Secondo lei è meglio provare e non riuscire, che non riuscire a provare? - Sì. - Ma qual è la differenza, se il risultato non cambia? - Hai fatto qualcosa, almeno.
Secondo me è tutto arbitrario. Per tutta la vita la gente ti chiederà di essere debole, ti supplicherà. Ma quello che tutti vogliono veramente è che tu sia forte.
Secondo me i silenzi più rumorosi sono quelli pieni di tutte le cose che sono state dette, dette in modo sbagliato, dette trecento volte.
See, if I were to ask you to move my couch for me, you’d probably say, ‘sure.’ But if I were to ask you to look deep into my eyes, and tell me from the bottom of your heart if it would give you great pleasure if I were to suck your cock for twelve hours, if I may be presumptuous, you’d probably say ‘Yes.’
Seeing a spider isn’t a problem. It becomes a problem when it disappears.
Seeing it before all your friends do: priceless.

Seek the invisible.
Seek the lofty by reading, hearing and seeing great work at some moment every day. (Thornton Wilder)
Segui la voce del tuo spirito.
Sei come un diamante. Ogni volta chi ti guardo da vicino vedo un piccolo lato diverso, e quando ti guardo da lontano l'insieme è spettacolare.
Sei così adorabile quando ti prepari alla strage.
Sei così impeccabile da poter fare la predica a me? Se il legame tra voi due è così forte, non puoi limitarti a startene tranquilla nelle tue certezze? Mi guardi sempre dall’alto al basso, ma in realtà ti faccio paura, vero..?
Sei disposto a soffrire per non dispiacere le persone che ami?
Sei la più stupida persona intelligente che conosco.
Sei molto dolce. - Non così dolce.. ho telefonato a Michael, mentre prendevamo l’aperitivo, e gli ho detto di metterla sul tavolo. - Ma sì, doveva essere la serata perfetta e non c’è una cosa che è andata come doveva andare. - Che cosa sei. - A me non piace il caviale. - Va bene. - Non ho grossi addominali. Cioè.. non sono male, però non sono eccezionale. Non ho nemmeno viaggiato molto. Non mi piace vedere i film con i sottotitoli, perché ci metto così tanto tempo a leggerli che mi perdo quello che succede sullo schermo.Non sono granché come cuoco. So ballare discretamente.. e so anche che perderò i capelli.. in fretta. E.. beh.. Phil, non voleva farti del male. Lui voleva solo che potessi avere qualcosa per cui battermi. Tu.. tu mi emozioni. Ti guardo quando stai in mezzo alla gente e con un sorriso puoi cambiare la giornata ad una persona e ti vedo quasi inconsapevole dell’ammirazione di tutte le persone che ti circondano. E tu sei.. bella, brillante e affettuosa, affascinante, divertente e la tua risata.. riesce a far ridere anche me. E.. volevo solo dirti queste cose, anche se ora ricomincerai a chiamarmi Steve. - Mi piacciono i film con i sottotitoli. - L’avevo immaginato. - E.. non credo di avere altri problemi con il resto della tua lista. E sai una cosa? Ho capito qual’era il piano del tuo amico quando l’hai sbattuto contro il muro e mi avete rotto il vaso. - Ehm.. ti ricomprerò un vaso uguale. - Nessuno può programmare la serata perfetta. Nemmeno un ragazzo meraviglioso che scrive su una scheda come chiedere di uscire a una ragazza. Vieni qui.. ti devo dire un’altra cosa.
Sei rimasta invalida sotto una macchina? Tuo padre è fallito e non hai più soldi per mangiare? E allora? Life goes on. Comunque: anche se fossi invalida o senza un soldo.
Sei sempre così dura con chi vuole aiutarti? - Sono fuori allenamento.
Sei solo una castratrice di maschi, rinsecchita e sola.
Sei strano come una puttana in chiesa.
Sei tutto ciò che non ammetto a me stessa di desiderare.
Sei unico nel mondo, agisci come tale.

Senti, ti va di metterti la lingua in mezzo ai denti e morsicartela?

Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there. (Bo Jackson)
Seven Lovely Logics: Make peace with your past so it doesn’t spoil your present. What others think of you is none of your business. Time heals almost everything, give the time some time. No one is the reason of your happiness except you yourself. Don’t compare your life with others, you have no idea what their journey is all about. Stop thinking too much, it’s alright not to know all the answers. Smile, you don’t own all the problems in the world.
Shadow owes its birth to light. (John Gay)
Share the love.
She had a nobility about her that made me feel proud to be with her. [...] She had a poise and dignity that was ageless. (Clifford Odets & George Seaton)
She is unlike any maiden in the kingdom. She behaves without judgment, defies expectation.
She talks more than I can listen.
She was my dream. She made me who I am, and holding her in my arms was more natural to me than my own heartbeat. I think about her all the time. Even now, when I’m sitting here, I think about her. There could never have been another.
She’s a dormant volcano. She’s always under control. She lies to everyone and herself.
She’s got that whole purpose driven warrior princess save the world type of vibe.
She’s highly emotional that one… - All the good ones are.
She’s schizophrenic, but that doesn’t mean that she isn’t perceptive.
Shit. Sam must’ve lost his damned mind because you should not be allowed to work in no situation where you actually have to interact with people.
Should I interpret your silence as a sign to leave?
Should, could, would, did.
Shout as loud as you can

Si sente il vento di una grande pagina redatta da me, da te e da Dio, rigirata in alto da mani straniere... Si sente il bagliore di un foglio nuovo, su cui tutto potrà accadere. (Rilke)
Si tratta di fare qualcosa o stare a guardare.
Sì, come no. Continua a raccontarti le favole.
Sì. Ho paura io stesso, a rimanere per troppo tempo solo con lei... ho paura di me stesso. Io non ho alcun diritto di vivere nel suo mondo. Eppure, come mi sento attratto dalla sua purezza. Il suo amore per me mi fa sembrare meno vile ai miei occhi! (Poi, con un’aspra risata) E nel tempo stesso, un milione di volte più vile, questo è il tormento! [...] Quando nei suoi occhi vedo l’amore per un assassino, la mia colpa mi fa groppo in gola, come un rigurgito velenoso, e sento il bisogno di buttarlo fuori... e confessare!

Sir, what if a writer is attempting to create a story where nothing much happens, where people don’t change, they don’t have any epiphanies, they struggle and are frustrated and nothing is resolved? - More a reflection of the real world. - The real world? - Yes, Sir. The real fucking world. First of all, you write a screenplay without conflict or crisis, you’ll bore your audience to tears. Secondly, nothing happens in the world? Are you out of your fucking mind? People are murdered every day. There’s genocide, war, corruption. Every fucking day, somewhere in the world, somebody sacrifices his life to save somebody else. Every fucking day, someone somewhere takes a conscious decision to destroy someone else! People find love! People lose it! For Christ’s sake, a child watches a mother beaten to death on the steps of a church! Someone goes hungry! Somebody else betrays his best friend for a woman! If you can’t find that stuff in life, then you, my friend, don’t know crap about life!

Some people would consider the fact that I have never worked in this field before as a weakness. However, being highly trainable and open minded, I have no pre-conceived notions on how to perform my job. Working with your organization will give me the opportunity to learn the job the way you want it done, not the way I believe it is done. In addition, although I have no former on-the-job experience, I do bring with me extensive hands-on training and experience which can only enhance my ability to learn extremely quickly.
Some succeed because they are destined. Some succeed because they are determined.

Someday someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it.

Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there, because you can’t remember a time in your life when it wasn’t. But then one day you feel something else. Something that feels wrong only because it’s so unfamiliar, and in that moment you realize you’re happy.
Sometimes people can surprise you.
Sometimes people come into your life not to love you, but to make you feel that you are worth loving.
Sometimes the most beautiful poetry can be about simple things, like a cat, or a flower or rain. You see, poetry can come from anything with the stuff of revelation in it. Just don’t let your poems be ordinary.

Somewhere there’s a light / That meets a shoreless tide / But I guess I’m resigned / To never seeing mine / Shoosh, I’ve never lied / All these teenage dreams / Put them all aside / They hurt like kryptonite / And you lost / A piece of me / I know I’ll find in time / In time / This is how it goes / We part and say good bye / Then you take what’s yours / And I take what’s mine / No, I’ve never lied / Just took some souvenirs / Keep your comic books / Remind me you were here / When you lost / A piece of me I know I’ll find in time / In time / You lost / A piece of me I know I’ll find in time / No, these... / Teenage dreams I’ll leave them all behind / In time
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. (Carl Sagan)
Son piccola piccola, ma con un cuore grande grande. Attenzione però.. le mie unghie sono lunghe lunghe.
Song Without Words – I wanted to write you some words you’d remember / words so alert they’d leap from the paper / and crawl up your shoulder and lie by your ears / and be there to comfort you down through the years. / But it was cloudy that day and I was lazy / and so I stayed in bed all day just thinking about it.. / I wanted to write you and tell you that maybe / love songs for lovers are unnecessary. / We are what we feel and writing it down / seems foolish sometimes without vocal sound. / But I spent the day drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes / And looking in the mirror practicing my smile. / I wanted to write you one last long love song / That said what I feel one final time. / Not comparing your eyes and mouth to the stars / but telling you only how like yourself you are. / But by the time I thought of it, found a pen, / put the pen to ink, the ink to paper, / you were gone. / And so this song has no words. (by Rod McKuen – from Listen to the Warm, 1972)

The human body is literally a pool of energy. Our feelings inside emit out like high frequency vibrations outside.

You can sense it quite easily if you are receptive to it. Sexual tension almost has a smell to it.

The modern gym is a relatively recent innovation. In ancient Greece, the gymnasion, or “school for naked exercise,” existed to train men for public competitions. During the Renaissance, exercise began to be more recognized as beneficial. And the Enlightenment embraced the idea of physical education for all. A Prussian born in the late 1700s, Friedrich Ludwig Jahn, became known as the “father of gymnastics.” He wanted to make the youth fit for military service, and his ideas spread to other countries, including to the United States in the 1840s. Around the same time, the Young Men’s Christian Association was founded in London, and the U.S. had its first Y.M.C.A. by 1851. The growth of team sports like baseball and football toward the end of the 1800s gave young American men more reason to work out. And as the country grew more urban, so did the need to keep city dwellers fit. President Dwight D. Eisenhower helped make fitness a national priority amid concerns that young Americans were trailing their European counterparts. The 1980s aerobics mania — headlined by Jane Fonda — further led to the coed gyms we attend today as we try to attain that Greek fitness ideal.

The Optimist Creed - Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel like there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living person you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too strong for fear, and to be happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Every mistake you make, you will live through again, & again, forever. So my advice to you is to get it right this time around. Because this time is all you have.

There are 82 letters in here, and they’re all addressed to you. I wrote them all this summer, one a day, but I never sent them because I was afraid. I was afraid of getting my heart broken again, like before, because it hurt me so bad and I was afraid to be vulnerable and I was afraid of you and the way you make me feel - and I know that doesn’t matter now after what I did, but I just thought that you should know. This is how I spent my summer, Luke… wanting you. I was just too scared to admit it.

There are books that open doors for their readers [...] And then there are readers who dream of becoming writers/artists [...] there are books which give them [...] permission to become the sort of writers, actors, artists they have it in themselves to be. [...] This is what Grass’s great novel said to me in its drumbeats: Go for broke. Always try and do too much. Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath before you begin talking. Aim for the stars. Keep grinning. Be bloody minded. Be ruthless. Argue with the world. And never forget that writing is as close as we get to keeping a hold on the thousand and one things - childhood, certainties, cities, doubts, dreams, instants, phrases, parents, loves - that go on slipping, like sand, through our fingers. I have tried to learn the lessons of the midget drummer. (Rushdie preface to Gunther grass book, “Tin Drum”)

There comes a time in every man’s life when he must stop thinking and start doing.
There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.

There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book.

There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyages of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures. I think what that quote means is that life is short and opportunities are rare. And we have to be vigilant in protecting them and not only the opportunities to succeed but the opportunity to laugh, to see the enchantment and to live. Because life doesn't owe us anything. In fact I think we owe something to the world. And if we can just believe... I have more, but I think I'm having my baby.
There is a vitality, / a life force, / a quickening / that is translated through you into action, / and because there is only one of you in all time, / this expression is unique. // And If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. / The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine / how good it is / nor how valuable it is / nor how it compares with other expressions. // It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly / to keep the channel open. / You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. / You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate YOU. / Keep the channel open… / No artist is pleased… / There is no satisfaction whatever at anytime / There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction / a blessed unrest that keeps us marching / and makes “us” MORE alive than the others.

Ti assicuro che ti stupirai di quante volte ci si può innamorare.
Ti auguro 2 cose nella vita: TUTTO e NIENTE. Tutto quello che ti renda felice e Niente che ti faccia soffrire.
Ti capiteranno molte cose che non ti piaceranno, persone che non ricambiano il tuo amore. E se vuoi sul serio diventare un artista, questa è la prima cosa da imparare. E ricorda: tu morirai. È chiaro? E relativamente presto. È chiaro? Una volta detto questo, non hai niente di cui preoccuparti. Qualunque cosa ti capiti in questa vita, tu hai due possibilità. Solo due possibilità: puoi cercare di gestire le cose bene ed essere felice, o le puoi gestire male ed essere triste. Sta a te decidere.
Ti ho osservato nel negozio.. adoro il tuo modo di estraniarti. Nei tuoi occhi c’è scritto che odi il mondo. Lo odio anch’io. Tu mi capisci, vero?
Ti piace spiare nei cuori della gente e dichiarare in pubblico ciò che hai visto? Anche se io soffro ... non voglio che sia tu a cibarti del mio dolore.
Ti regalo un sorriso, ti porterà allegria e se avrai paura ti terrà compagnia! Perché il sorriso di un amico è come il sole: illumina la strada e riscalda il cuore!
Ti riposerai da morta. (Million Dollar Baby)
Ti sarò grato per ogni goccia che berrò dal grande fiume dello spirito che tu sei.
Ti sei allontanata dal mio mondo per prendere il tuo posto alla radice della mia vita. Ora siedo in silenzio al mio cancello infranto e attendo il tuo arrivo. Mi tieni prigioniero della mia stessa libertà.
Ti sei mai inventato una storia, Edward? Mai raccontato ai tuoi amici una cosa che sai non vera e che sai che se la scoprissero, non saresti più loro amico? Perché.. perché hai mentito loro. Mi capisci? // Poi mi chiese se sapevo cosa fosse la fiducia. Ed io risposi: “Quando ti senti al sicuro con qualcuno, come con i miei amici, come con te e la mamma”. Poi lui mi disse: “Non mentire mai. Se mentirai ai tuoi amici, non si fideranno di te. E non avrai nulla. E non sarai mai al sicuro.”
Ti senti in vena di avventure? - Faccia del suo peggio, Mr Huges.
Tieniti stretti gli amici e ancora più stretti i nemici.

Tirerei ancora quel colpo. - Sì, lo so. Tu ti seppelliresti vivo per dimostrare che sai usare una pala. - E lo sai perché lo tirerei ancora?

Io non mi sono mai tirato indietro davanti alla sfida, l’ho sempre affrontata. I grandi rischiano il fallimento.

To those of you who keep expecting me to go out of my mind any moment, it may take awhile longer as the exits are not clearly marked.
To those who have given up on love, I say, “Trust life a little bit.” (Maya Angelou)
To worry is like rocking in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but gets you nowhere.
Today four people asked me about you. I gave them your details & contact. They'll be finding you soon. Their names are Happiness, Health, Wealth & Love.
Today I am wearing the smile that you left me with.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal.

Too many people confine their exercise to jumping to conclusions, running up bills, stretching the truth, bending over backwards, lying down on the job, sidestepping responsibility and pushing their luck.
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are. (Malcolm S. Forbes)
Too much agreement kills a chat. (Eldridge Cleaver)
Too old to die young.
Tornami le mie lettere, tornami il mio ritratto

Tough times don’t last; tough people do.

Tripped down memory lane. (Saul Goodman, lawyer in “Breaking Bad”)
Troppa gentilezza non offende nessuno.

Trust, but verify. (Ronald Reagan)
Truth is still absolute. Believe that. Even when that truth is hard and cold and more painful than you ever imagined. And even when truth is more cruel than any lie.
Try a thing you haven’t done three times. Once to get over the fear of doing it. Twice to learn how to do it. And a third time to figure out whether you like it or not. (Joyce Meyer)
Try and fail, but don’t fail to try.
Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
Try to improve by 1% every day. Within a year you will have improved by 365%.
Try to leave the Earth a better place than when you arrived. (Sidney Sheldon)
Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never met.
Tu confondi il sesso col dormire: dormire è una cosa che preferisco fare da solo.
Tu escludi a priori la possibilità di fidarti di me.
Tu hai le tue regole, io ho le mie.
Tu non conosci gli abissi della mia vendetta.
Tu non hai il potere di farmi arrabbiare. Tu non conti abbastanza per farmi arrabbiare.
Tu rispetti di più le persone quando loro non ti rispettano.
Tu sei una tronfia, acida, ossessiva stronza.
Tu trascuri uno dei grandi dettagli della mia personalità: io non ho un "tipo".
Tu vuoi di più dalla vita..? Mettiti in fila.
Tu vuoi parlare con me? – Sì. - Ok CowBoy non so quello che hai in testa, ma se si tratta di qualche gioco perverso, se provi a fregarmi in qualsiasi modo, giuro che ti stacco ogni appendice dal corpo, a cominciare dall'uccello, comprendi? - Ok, perché no?
Tu... hai preso la mia mano per guidarmi verso l’amore. Ci sei riuscito. Ti Amo.
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you. (Charlotte Whitton)
Tutta la poesia e il teatro greci si avvalgono della metrica. E cos’è la metrica se non scienza del respiro? La misura, in greco “metron”, è per l’attore, come per il cosmo, l’arte del ritmo; l’arte del respiro. Nel respiro l’attore esperisce il cosmo, cioè l’altro. Nel respiro il cosmo si manifesta all’attore. A chi gli chiedeva come si definisse, Duchamp ha risposto: “sono uno che respira”. Ovvero: sono consapevole di respirare; sono consapevole, altresì, di essere respirato. Sono consapevole che nel respiro il cosmo si manifesta in me come vita. Si può dunque pensare l’arte dell’attore come l’arte del respiro. Come l’arte di colui che manifesta il cosmo attraverso il respiro. In cui l’attore è il lucente specchio della totalità: nel frammento. Il lucente specchio dell’incommensurabile: nella misura. Il lucente specchio del sé: nell’io. (Maurizio Nicosia)
Tutte le ore feriscono, l’ultima uccide.
Tutte le parti di un organismo formano un cerchio, perciò ogni parte è sia il principio che la fine. (Ippocrate)
Tutte le strane avventure hanno bisogno di strani strumenti. - Stiamo partendo per un’avventura? - Mio pan di zucchero, siamo già partiti. Ora ascoltami attentamente: con fede, amore, il cubo e un contatore mutante potrai trovare te stessa in posti che mai hai immaginato
Tutte le vittorie finiscono nella disfatta della morte.
Tutti devono sapere.
Tutti facciamo del male.
Tutti i grandi imperi del futuro saranno imperi della mente. (Winston Churchill)
Tutti quanti abbiamo paura, sai? Ed è così che ci rendiamo conto che teniamo alle cose, quando abbiamo paura di perderle.
Tutti sanno che una cosa è impossibile da realizzare, finché arriva uno sprovveduto che non lo sa e la inventa. (Albert Einstein)
Tutto ciò di cui ho bisogno è amore. Ma un po’ di cioccolata, ogni tanto, non fa male.
Tutto dipende da come lo si considera.

Un amico fedele è una protezione potente: chi lo trova, trova un tesoro. Per un amico fedele, non c'è prezzo, non c'è peso per il suo valore.
Un amico saggio sa evitarci molte pene.
Un bouquet di matite ben temperate.
Un buon silenzio non fu mai scritto.
Un colpo di fulmine è l'unica cosa che non ci ha ancora colpito.
Un cumulo di nullità che parla di nulla... -A me piace il nulla: è l’unica cosa di cui so qualcosa... -Odio i paradossi. -Anche io. ogni persona che s’incontra è un paradosso oggigiorno; ciò rende la società così comune. -Ma tu capisci sempre quello che dici? -Sì, ma devo ascoltare attentamente. (Oscar Wilde)
Un gentiluomo non chiede mai; una signora non lo rivela mai.

Un sogno lungo una notte.
Un solo passo tra ispirazione e creazione.
Un tempo per nascere, un tempo per morire. Un tempo per piantare, un tempo per sradicare la pianta. Un tempo per uccidere, un tempo per guarire. Un tempo per distruggere, un tempo per costruire. Un tempo per piangere, un tempo per ridere. Un tempo per gemere, un tempo per ballare. Un tempo per scagliare pietre, un tempo per raccogliere sassi. Un tempo per abbracciare, un tempo per separarsi. Un tempo per cercare, un tempo per perdere. Un tempo per conservare, un tempo per gettare via. Un tempo per strappare, un tempo per ricucire. Un tempo per tacere, un tempo per parlare. Un tempo per amare, un tempo per odiare. Un tempo per la guerra, un tempo per la pace.
Un temporale distrugge invece di fecondare. La pioggerella invece penetra bene nel terreno.
Un uomo che ride non sarà mai pericoloso.
Un uomo d'onore paga sempre i suoi debiti e mantiene la sua parola.
Un vero demone vomitato dall’inferno. Privo di qualsiasi motivazione ideologica o emozionale. Uccide per il piacere di uccidere. Per trovargli un antenato bisogna risalire a mister Hyde, il lato nero del dottor Jekyll, la bestia assetata di sangue lasciata in libertà nelle strade della Londra Vittoriana.
Una conoscenza che inizia con un complimento è destinata a diventare vera amicizia. (Oscar Wilde)
Una freccia che vola, in realtà è ferma in aria, perché ad ogni istante di questa sua apparente corsa essa occupa un punto fermo nello spazio: quindi la sua parabola non è che un inganno dei nostri sensi. Il corridore più veloce non può sorpassare la tartaruga, perché ogni qualvolta ne raggiunge la posizione essa l’ha già superata. Infatti un corpo, per muovere dal punto A al punto B, deve raggiungere la metà di questo tragitto ch’è il punto C. Per raggiungere C, deve prima raggiungere la metà di questo secondo tragitto che è il punto D, e così all’infinito. Ora, siccome l’infinito richiede una infinita serie di movimenti, è impossibile percorrerlo in un tempo definito. (Zenone)
Una gentilezza al giorno toglie la tristezza di torno. (Edvania Paes)
Una mano lava l’altra.
Una Mente aperta è come una Fortezza indifesa. (Matteo 21, 12-13)
Una minuscola foglia davanti agli occhi può nascondere alla vista il monte Taishan.
Una ragazza che sa quel che vuole ha sempre un certo non so che. Ha il potere di ammaliare chi la circonda. Ed è difficile dire cos’è che ci conquista in lei: ci conquista e basta. Che sia alta, bassa, trendy o alternativa, è a lei che ci rivolgiamo per avere delle risposte. Lei ha le sue idee e non ha paura di esprimerle. E tutti noi ci domandiamo: ma come fa ad essere così? Dico sì a un allenamento estenuante, e sì a un bel massaggio subito dopo. Dico sì al confronto diretto con le vipere. Dico sì alle ginocchia tremanti e ai loro clamorosi trionfi. Dico sì a sfruttare i doni di madre natura. Dico sì alle decisioni da cui non si torna indietro. Dico sì alla danza della vittoria. Dico sì a lasciare tutti senza fiato. Dico sì a poter essere quello che mi pare e piace. Dico no alle follie. Dico sì. Dico sì. Dico sì. Dico sì e lo ripeto, sì.
Una sola buona azione, se muore taciuta, ne uccide mille che potrebbero seguirla. Le lodi sono la nostra ricompensa. Con un solo dolce bacio potete farci cavalcare mille miglia mentre sotto lo sprone percorriamo a fatica un solo acro.
Una sola colpa: essere innocente.
Una sola rondine non fa primavera.
Una vera pittrice non riesce a vivere senza dipingere. Dipinge fino alla morte, chiaro? Io devo lavorare per guadagnarmi da vivere. Quindi non ho tempo per gingillarmi solo per vanità. Se non sono abbastanza brava, dovrò fare qualcos’altro per aiutare i miei genitori.
Una vita senza ricerca non è degna d'essere vissuta. (Socrate)
Unbelievable. The chance factor in life is mind-boggling. You entered the world by a random event somewhere along the Mississippi; I, having emerged through the conjoining of Sam and Yetta Yellnikoff in the Bronx, decades earlier. And through an astronomical concatenation of circumstances, our paths cross. Two runaways in the vast, black, unspeakably violent and indifferent universe.
Uncommon beauty is commonly overlooked.
Uncommon valor was a common virtue. Semper fidelis.
Unfortunately, sometimes the truth makes everything else seem like a lie.
Unless a tree has borne blossoms in spring, you will vainly look for fruit on it in autumn. (Wallet Scott)
Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow. (Ronald E. Osborn)
Uno sguardo di penosa e appassionata interrogazione.
Unrequited love is the perfect romantic construct. Two cowardly people can act out a fantasy of love without facing any consequences.
Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light.
Until we find a way searching light for eternity.
Unus dies gradus vitae est. (Un giorno è un gradino della vita.)
Unus homo, nullus homo.
Unus potest omnia. (Un solo uomo può tutto.)
Uomini che combattono per vivere il presente per le persone amate per cambiare il futuro, 3 anime superano il tempo e si incontrano violentemente aprendo il sipario su una nuova battaglia.

Valete, ut hostes vostri diffidant sibi. (Siate forti, in modo che i vostri nemici diffidino di sé stessi)
Vampires are always in some kind of trouble. I prefer to be in it with you.
Vampires often turn on those who trust them, you know. We don’t have human values like you. A lot of humans turn on those who trust them, too.
Vanity working on a weak mind produces every kind of mischief.
Vede male chi è troppo vicino.
Vedere ciò che non accade.
Vedi Mike, poche anime tornano giù con un’idea completa. Quasi sempre sono piccoli pezzi di un’idea. Qualcosa che nemmeno hanno mai visto o sentito, ma che è nell’aria, è intorno a loro. E’ questo il bello del sistema!
Vedi, le cose di moda sono quelle che indossiamo noi; le cose fuori moda, invece, quelle che portano gli altri. Gli altri uomini sono spaventosi. L’unica possibile società siamo noi stessi. Amare se stessi è l’inizio di un idillio che dura una vita... (Oscar Wilde)
Vedi, non c’è coraggio e non c’è paura. Ci sono soltanto coscienza e incoscienza. La coscienza è paura, l’incoscienza è coraggio. (Moravia)
Veloce, Astuta... Mortale.

Verrà quel che deve venire, anche se io lo copro nel silenzio.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. (Marcus Aurelius)
Vesti la rabbia di pace
Vi auguro sogni a non finire, la voglia furiosa di realizzarne qualcuno. Vi auguro di amare ciò che si deve amare e di dimenticare ciò che si deve dimenticare. Vi auguro passioni. Vi auguro silenzi. Vi auguro il canto degli uccelli al risveglio e risate di bambini. Vi auguro di resistere all’affondamento, all’indifferenza, alle virtù negative della nostra epoca. Vi auguro soprattutto di essere voi stessi. (Jacques Brel)
Vi è mai capitato di sentirvi crollare il mondo addosso? Come quando, convinta d'esser sola in casa, d'improvviso t'accorgi di un'ombra poco distante. Hai un arresto, corporeo e mentale. E' uno dei pochi momenti dopo cui ti rendi conto che il tuo cuore batte. Ti si solleva quasi la pelle dal corpo. Spalanchi inconsciamente gl'occhi e diventi un animale. Credo che questa sia la sensazione che più s'avvicina al crollo del tuo mondo. Basta una frase, un gesto, uno sguardo. Ed ecco quell'immobilità. Per molto tempo non necessiti più nemmeno del respiro. Perché ti hanno appena tolto una delle uniche certezze che avevi. E' una specie di morte metafisica. A cui segue uno sblocco emotivo angosciante. Senza riuscire a frenare il sentimento, la vista s'appanna. Calde lacrime. L'unica consolazione è il calore del nettare oculare che riga le guance. Fervida immaginazione. Già.
Vi scongiuro - se sapete qualcosa che può essere utile ch'io conosca, non imprigionatela in un segreto d'ignoranza.
Vi sussurrerò un bacio,lo farò piano, con dolcezza, senza che Voi ve ne accorgiate.. Le mie labbra cercheranno il Vostro volto per disegnare i suoi contorni e trasferirvi i sentimenti che avete scatenato nel mio animo. Ci metterò tutto l`amore del mondo, Vi donerò amicizia e serenità. Le mie labbra cercheranno le Vostre in un inebriante gioco di emozioni che non avrà mai fine. Volerò oltre l’immaginazione verso un mondo nello spazio ignoto dove la libertà inebria lo spirito e mille desideri si intrecciano tra di loro in un sottile gioco di pensiero per rivivere in un intenso attimo d`amore. Vi donerò le chiavi del giardino dei sogni, quel luogo segreto sepolto nel tempo, dove sapevo che un giorno sareste entrata per posarvi un frammento di felicità. Porterò sempre con me le Vostre parole, custodirò il suono della Vostra voce per ascoltarVi in giornate senza sole. Vorrei amarVi come non ho mai saputo, come si amano le cose più belle. Vorrei amarVi oltre la stessa vita, come le cose più eteree ed impalpabili, nell`ombra tra anima e cuore. E mi illudo che sarete sempre là ad aspettarmi nel mondo di fantasia che abbiamo costruito per noi, dove vivrà per sempre il nostro amore senza limiti. (Theking – marito di ExtremeLot)

Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over. (Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald)

Voglio raggiungere quello stato di condensazione delle sensazioni che costituisce un dipinto. (Matisse)
Voglio tutto. E voglio che me lo consegnino.
Voglio una canna da pesca, non il pesce.
Voi non siete Me e io non sono Voi, perché se io fossi Voi e se Voi Me, il Mio pensiero non muterebbe
Voi siete molto in ritardo. -Vi sono mancato? -Moltissimo -Dovevo fare più tardi... mi fa piacere che si senta la mia mancanza. -E’ parlare da egoista, questo. -Io sono egoista -Voi non fate che parlarmi delle Vostre cattive qualità. -Ve ne ho rivelate solo la metà. -Davvero? E le altre sono molto brutte? -Ah, sono orribili: quando ci penso la notte... mi addormento subito. -Ebbene, devo dirVi che io adoro le Vostre cattive qualità e che non dovete perderne neanche una. -Ciò denota il Vostro sublime buon gusto. (Oscar Wilde)
Vola come una Farfalla e pungi come una Vespa.
Vola soltanto chi osa farlo.
Volere non è importante, perché le immagini nascono casuali.
Volete sapere come muore l’innocenza? Guardatemi negli occhi.
Vorrei che mi facessi vedere com’è... -Vedere com’è che cosa, esattamente? -Essere come te. -Adesso non ho il tempo di farlo. -Il tempo non manca mai ad un Vampiro. -A me sì. -D’accordo. Stanno arrivando tutti i non-morti... come passerai quella che potrebbe essere la tua ultima notte sulla terra, come sempre da solo? -Perché no? -Perché non la passi con me? -Va bene... però potrebbe procurare sofferenze ad un mortale: la tua pelle è sensibile al dolore. -Non importa. -Ti fidi di me? -Sì. -Allora, chiudi gli occhi.
Vorrei dire due parole spiegare cosa significa sfuggire al sole per non bruciare.
Vorrei essere un battito per vivere nel tuo cuore..

Una volpe aveva visto per caso una maschera da tragedia: “Che splendido aspetto, disse, non ha cervello!”.

We are no longer happy so soon as we wish to be happier. (Walter Savage Landor)
We are not retreating - we are advancing in another direction. (Douglas MacArthur)
We are now taking control of our own evolution. We are directly designing the future of the species of this planet. It confers upon us an enormous responsibility that is not just the responsibility of the scientists and the ethicists who are thinking about it and writing about it now.

We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are. (Anais Nin)
We fail because we don’t strike the iron while it’s hot. We don’t take immediate action toward achieving what we want. We decide to wait until tomorrow, or next week, or even next month.
We fall forward to succeed. (Mary Kay Ash)
We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one. (Jacques Yves Cousteau)
We gain the strength of the temptation we resist. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
We had a lot going for us. We’d found the secret glue that held all things together. In a perfect place, where the noise did not intrude, our world was so very complete.
We hate each other like poison if you wanna know the truth. Most of the Hites wouldn’t spit on me if I was on fire. - They say that when a woman’s on fire you’re supposed to roll her around on the ground and cover her with your body. - Well, you are a naughty tease.
We have a natural compulsion to fill empty spaces.
We have the capacity to receive messages from the stars and the songs of the night winds. (Ruth St. Denis)
We have to laugh at the stuff that makes us human.
We have two options here: first one, we get along really well, sex is great, we laugh heartily, we are so compatible that is ridiculous.. I like this option.
We learn 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see, 50% of what we see and hear, 70% of what we discuss, 80% of what we experience, 95% of what we teach others. (William Glasser)

Being with her made everything else seem less important. The moment I met her I knew I was looking at my future and I knew no person could ever come between us. I know Camilla would have liked this group of boys. I want to thank them and I want to thank all of you for allowing me to spend a lifetime with my first love. Thank you.

You ever look at a picture of yourself and see a stranger in the background? It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you. How many moments of other people’s lives have we been in? Were we a part of someone’s life, or when their dream came true, or were we there when their dreams died? Did we keep trying to get in, as if we were somehow destined to be there? Or did the shot take us by surprise? Just think. You could be a big part of someone else’s life and not even know it.

And so, I asked my mom what was going on? And she told me… “That’s exactly how I feel every time I kiss your father.” So, naturally, I thought my dad had some kind of magical kissing power! That whoever kisses him gets to feel like they’re fine. Sure… So, I tried it. I kissed him… and I closed my eyes. And I concentrated really, really hard. And absolutely nothing happened. Nothing. I was so bombed. And I tried it a few more times and eventually just gave up. I actually forgot all about it. Until the first time you kissed me. And then I remembered Charlie Brown.

You’re so interesting, Wes. It’s like time doesn’t matter to you. - Are you kidding me? It’s going by so fast.. I don’t get it. - Yeah, but it doesn’t freak you out. You’re so patient, so calm. - There are plenty of moments where I just wanna kick things and scream, trust me. - I don’t know. I mean, sometimes, you’re really quiet. And you get this look on your face, like.. time doesn’t exist. That’s how you make me feel. Like, I have all the time in the world, because time doesn’t exist. - It’s nice. Thank you. - You’re welcome. - I think I wanna have a baby. - With me? - No. - With Kai? - I don’t like change. It’s very disorienting. I mean, when something changes in your life, you have to adapt.. which means you have to change. And what if I like who I am and I don’t wanna change? - Then don’t. You don’t have to. - Sometimes I can’t even tell if I’m moving forward or if I’m, like, frozen. Makes me feel like I’m not in control of my life. - It’s not that bad, being vulnerable. Makes you care about things. About people. There’s nothing wrong with that. - It’s kind of scary, don’t you think? - You don’t have to be. Being scared doesn’t mean you’re in a bad situation. It means new things are coming your way. Depends on how you see your future, I guess. - What do you mean? - Do you see it as this thing, far far away, full of ideals and wonderful, impossible things? Or do you see it as the next hour, the next morning? - Does it really matter? - I think so. One definitely feels better than the other. I think that’s what matters.

You're never too young to save the world.
You've made an accusation. You must allow me the opportunity to defend myself. I'm not going to deny that I was aware of your beauty... but the point is, this has nothing to do with your beauty. As I got to know you, I began to realise... that beauty was the least of your qualities. I became fascinated by your goodness. I was drawn in by it. I didn't understand what was happening to me. It was only when I began to feel actual physical pain... every time you left the room... that it finally dawned on me. I was in love. I knew it was hopeless... but that didn't matter to me. It's not that I want to have you, all I want is to deserve you. Tell me what to do. Show me how to behave. I'll do anything you say.
