Codul lui Da Vinci - Citate

"Robert: Cheia de boltă este ascunsă într-un loc sigur.
Leigh: Foarte sigur, sper!
Robert: De fapt, depinde de câte ori dai cu aspiratorul sub canapea."

"Everyone loves a conspiracy."  

"Google' is not a synonym for 'research'."

"These books can't possibly compete with centuries of established history, especially when that history is endorsed by the ultimate bestseller of all time."
Faukman's eyes went wide. "Don't tell me Harry Potter is actually about the Holy Grail."
"I was referring to the Bible."
Faukman cringed. "I knew that."  

"Faith - Acceptance of which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove." 

"History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, 'What is history, but a fable agreed upon?"  

"The Bible did not arrive by fax from heaven…The Bible is the product of man, my dear. Not of God. The Bible did not fall magically from the clouds. Man created it as a historical record of tumultuous times, and it has evolved through countless translations, additions, and revisions. History has never had a definitive version of the book." 

"Telling someone about what a symbol means is like telling someone how music should make them feel."  

"My lawyers will fricassee your testicles for breakfast. And if you dare board my plane without a warrant, your spleen will follow."

"Every faith in the world is based on fabrication... Every religion describes God through metaphor, allegory, and exaggeration, from the early Egyptians through modern Sunday school... Should we wave a flag and tell the Buddhists that we have proof the Buddha did not come from a lotus blossom? Or that Jesus was not born of a literal virgin birth? Those who truly understand their faiths understand the stories are metaphorical." 

"Nothing in Christianity is original." 

"Forgiveness is God's greatest gift"  

"Dr. Jacobus, I am walking out your doors right now. I need clothes. I am going to Vatican City. One does not go to Vatican City with ones ass hanging out. Do I make myself clear?"

"At this gathering [Council of Niceau in 324 AD] many aspects of Christianity were debated and voted upon - the date of Easter, the role of the bishops, the administration of sacraments, and, of course, the divinity of Jesus . . . until that moment in history, Jesus was viewed by His followers as a mortal prophet . . . a great and powerful man, but a man nonetheless. A mortal." 

"Her eyes were olive green--incisive and clear."  


"What really matters is what you believe." 

"Langdon turned to Sophie. "Who is that? What... happened?"
Teabing hobbled over. "You were rescued by a knight brandishing an Excalibur made by Acme Orthopedic"



"Those who truly understand their faiths understand the stories are metaphorical." 

"Learning the truth has become my life's love"  


"The Pentacle - The ancients envisioned their world in two halves - masculine and feminine. Their gods and goddesses worked to keep a balance of power. Yin and Yang. When male and female were balanced, there was harmony in the world. When they were unbalanced there was chaos." 

"The Bible did not arrive by fax from heaven…The Bible is the product of man, my dear. Not of God. The Bible did not fall magically from the clouds. Man created it as a historical record of tumultuous times, and it has evolved through countless translations, additions, and revisions. History has never had a definitive version of the book.
The Da Vinci Code"  



"Robert wondered if any of Harvard's revered Egyptologists had ever knocked on the door of a pyramid and expected an answer." 

"My lawyers will fricassee your testicles for breakfast. And if you dare board my plane without a warrant, your spleen will follow. "  


"He could taste the familiar tang of museum air - an arid, deionized essence that carried a faint hint of carbon - the product of industrial, coal-filter dehumidifiers that ran around the clock to counteract the corrosive carbon dioxide exhaled by visitors." 


"Wisdom is in books,... quote by me Halina Lagarde . Dan Brown is an inspiration to a book I am writing." 

"In which year did a Harvard sculler last outrow an Oxford man at Henley?" Langdon had no idea, but he could imagine only one reason the question had been asked. "Surely such a travesty has never occurred."
