    “And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”

    — Haruki Murakami

    glared, peered, gazed, stared, glanced, studied, gaped, observed, surveyed, gawked, leered.


    crinkled, wrinkled, sneered, nostrils flared, stuck her nose in the air, sniffed, sniffled.


    smiled, smirked, grinned, simpered, curved into a smile, corners of his mouth turned up, corners of his mouth quirked up, a corner of his mouth lifted, his mouth twitched, gave a half-smile, gave a lopsided grin, his mouth twisted, he plastered a smile on his face, forced a smile, faked a smile, his smile faded, his smile slipped, he pursed his lips, pouted.

    “And certainly the proletarian is no more naturally a moral man than another; he can flee his freedom, dissipate it, vegetate without desire, and give himself up to an inhuman myth; and the trick of ‘enlightened’ capitalism is to make him forget about his concern with genuine justification, offering him, when he leaves the factory where a mechanical job absorbs his transcendence, diversions in which this transcendence ends by petering out: there you have the politics of the American employing class which catches the worker in the trap of sports, 'gadgets,’ autos, and frigidaires.”

    Study tip #1

    If the text is too difficult to understand - convert it into a wattpad story.

    For ex.: Pride and Prejudice

    Make Darcy the, what I call "mafia kid archetype - asocial, rich kid with trust issues; and pair him Elisabeth - a bit naive young girl who always outsmarted and bEwItChEd him but her whole personality is quite boring.

    Idky, but it's fun to do.

    “Piuttosto cerchiamo il nostro proprio bene da noi stessi, e viviamolo liberamente, anche se chiusi in quest'ampio recesso, senza doverne rendere alcun conto, poiché preferiamo la dura libertà al più facile giogo di un lusso servile. La nostra vera grandezza apparirà molto più convincente quando potremo creare grandi cose da modeste, e da quelle penose le utili, e dalle avverse le più feconde, e qualunque sia il luogo nel quale il male si annida, trarre con la fatica e la costanza perfino dal dolore la felicità.”

    — John Milton, Paradiso perduto (via iseewhoiaminyoureyes)

    “Non è vero che uomo e donna hanno animi diversi: in ognuno c'è una parte dell'altro. Per questo una persona cerca in un'altra la parte mancante, e spesso non la trova e allora la cerca ancora. Uomo, donna, la puoi trovare ovunque perché Afrodite dispensa a caso le sue grazie, come un contadino disperde il seme in un campo. Non è vero che una è buona e l'altro è malvagio. Bene e male si mescolano nel cuore della stessa persona, come tu nel bronzo non distingui più il rame dallo stagno, eppure ci sono, formano la materia stessa del bronzo; così bene e male sono fusi tra loro e formano la materia dell'anima.”

    — Io, Agamennone, Giulio Guidorizzi


    “Tutti gli uomini che mirano a emergere su gli altri esseri animati debbono impegnarsi con il massimo sforzo, se non vogliono trascorrere l’esistenza oscuri, a guisa di pecore, che la natura ha create prone a terra e schiave del ventre. Nell’uomo, perlatro, le facoltà risiedono tanto nell’animo quanto nel corpo: il primo serve da guida, il secondo da strumento, poichè l’animo l’abbiamo in comune con gli dei, il corpo con gli esseri bruti. Perciò mi sembra più giusto cercar la gloria con le doti dell’intelletto che con la forza fisica e, poichè il tempo che abbiamo da vivere è tanto breve, far sì che duri il più possibile a lungo la memoria di noi. Fugace, fragile è la rinomanza che deriva dalla ricchezza e dai pregi del volto, ma la nobiltà dell’animo splende di vivo lume per sempre.”
