I think this is the list of correct ones so far:

1 we are not born to live alone in a cage, - Wee Free Men
2 you think it's bizarre, me saying that we were born to live together – Wyrd Sisters
3 and to protect each other? – Guards! Guards!
4 I don't, and I tell you: walk everywhere, look in every corner
5 search everywhere for a love so deep - Diggers
6 visit any place you like
7 see the whole world if you think it's necessary
8 ask the old and the wise - Wit and Wisdom of Discworld
9 but even after 1, noone, 100.000
10 you will find that I'm right - The Truth
11 so let's not waste a second - Carpe Jugulum
12 of our lives with trivial, material matters, - Making Money
13 because you know you won't live forever; - Mort
14 so lift your head up and look at the bright night
15 where a falling star is coming down, - Good Omens
16 and listen only to the sound of my voice.
17 I've been unexpectedly happy as in a fairytale
18 I've been alone as a survivor, I've been greatly admired - The Last Hero
19 I've known incredible friends and learn many things
20 I've seen children being spoiled and treated with too much attention – Small Gods
21 I've seen powerful people giving orders – Lords and Ladies
22 to a large number of others who had to obey – Monstrous Regiment
23 I've felt the desire to run away, outside this bounderies
24 far far away from this known places
25 but it was not my home, not my country
26 it was no more where I could live, there was no life there for me
27 nothing, and nobody, was really real,
28 because I have no power alone, there's nothing I can do.
29 I looked for you but I couldn't find you
30 and I felt lost. You had stolen my heart – Thief of Time
31 and left me to cry my eyes out in pain
32 so loud that when you said "I'll be back" your words were lost to me.
33 You're not such a devil person - Eric
34 you will never curse me to a boring wasted life. – Interesting Times
35 I was craving for your love, a hunger that made me mad. –
36 We had a fight and it was only my fault -
37 but you forgave me. You said you loved me.you said nothing could break my charm on you
38 and that you would have been by my side at all hours.
39 I felt so happy and so light I could hardly keep to the ground. –
40 we got married on December 21st,
41 in front of our parents, - Hogfather
42 a nice ceremony everybody liked.
43 it's wonderful how our lives shine so bright now that you're mine and I'm yours – Light Fantastic

9.. oh yes, maskerade.. I already said above : I'm sorry about this :oops: , it's related to the italian author Pirandello who wrote uno,nessuno,centomila=one, no one, one hundred thousand. It was about the discovery that how you see yourself is not how people see you, you thought you were one but people see you in 100.000 different ways.. blahblahblah moral is: he said we all were masks.

32... :lol: I wondered about that... here if you want to lose a letter you give it to the post office.. :lol: so "your words were lost" :lol: .............. :oops:

I'd like to add:
17. I know fairytale is poor clue to magic, so I add "unexpectably" because my dictionary says that a way to say it is "out of the blue"=here you got the colour... so it's really my dictionary's fault. :oops:
