Tälle sivulle on kerätty lainauksia, jotka jollain tavalla puhuttelevat minua.

"An nescis, mi fili, quantilla prudentia mundus regatur."
Suom. "Poikani, kunpa tietäisit, miten vähällä järjellä tätä maailmaa hallitaan." - Axel Oxenstierna
"I had already observed that he was as sensitive to flattery on the score of his art as any girl could be on that of her beauty." - John Watson Sherlock Holmesista (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: A Study in Scarlet)
"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid." - Jane Austen
"A house without books is like a room without windows." - Heinrich Mann
"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.'" - C. S. Lewis
"Hyvässä tyylissä ei saisi näkyä ponnistuksen häivää. Tekstin tulisi näyttää onnelliselta sattumalta." - Somerset Maugham
“Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. Nerds are allowed to love stuff; like, jump-up-and-down-in-your-chair-can’t-control-yourself-love-it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is 'you like stuff'', which is not a good insult at all. Like, 'you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.'" - John Green
"Never judge a book by its movie." - J. W. Eagan
“Just as you grieve if a friend is killed, you should grieve if a fictional character is killed. You should care. If somebody dies and you just go get more popcorn, it’s a superficial experience isn’t it?” - George R. R. Martin
"Let them see that their words can cut you and you’ll never be free of the mockery. If they want to give you a name take it make it your own. Then they can’t hurt you with it anymore." - Tyrion Lannister (George R. R. Martin: Game of Thrones)
"Luova ihminen on sosiaalisesti androgyyni." - Miisa Jääskeläinen
"Syntymä ei oikeastaan ole alku. Meidän elämämme ei ole mitenkään erityisesti meidän elämäämme; se on pelkästään jatkoa jonkun toisen tarinalle. Ajatellaanpa esimerkiksi minua. Minun syntymästäni voisi kai luulla, että se olisi ollut tavalla tai toisella huomionarvoinen tapahtuma. Että siinä ympärillä olisi pyörinyt kummallisia enteitä ja kaiken maailman noitatohtoreita ja haltiatarkummeja. Ei suinkaan. Ei mitään sellaista. Kun minä synnyin, olin itse asiassa pelkkä sivujuoni." - Vida Winter (Diane Setterfiel: Kolmastoista kertomus)
"There is no such thing as fiction. Just non-fiction in the wrong parallel universe." - Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor: Welcome to Night Vale
"Miksi ihminen itkee ollessaan surulinen, minä kysyn vielä. Siksi, sanoi lapsi, kun silmiä täytyy välillä pestä että näkisi paremmin!" - August Strindberg: Uninäytelmä
“Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else. But just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes.” - Kalyn RoseAnne
