1. "Persephone told me that you said it wasn't as good as you expected it. When she kissed you, I mean."Something flickered behind his eyes, but it was gone so fast that I couldn't tell what it was. "No, it was not. I find little joy in showing affection to somebody who does not return it.""Yeah, me too." I covered his hand with mine and pressed my lips against his palm. "It hurts being the one who loves more."
Author: Aimee Carter
2. "The sharing of a book is a statement—a message of affection that is also an act of self-revelation. Join my club, it says. Come and sit beside me."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
3. "The Grand Old Party's abiding affection for a 'bigger and better' presidency isn't entirely logical. After all, the Obama presidency commenced with an effort to reenact the Hundred Days. Yet President Obama's first-term economic performance itself was not 'big' but mediocre - tiny, even."
Author: Amity Shlaes
4. "Did I, my lines intend for public view,How many censures, would their faults pursue,Some would, because such words they do affect,Cry they're insipid, empty, uncorrect.And many, have attained, dull and untaught,The name of wit, only by finding fault.True judges, might condemn their want of wit,And all might say, they're by a woman writ."
Author: Anne Finch
5. "There exists a great uncertainty that comes with life. It is like a tree, its roots formed below the surface, its body penetrating a layer of top soil, its roots spreading outward, and affecting the domain it inhabits. With this natural uncertainty one feels lost, almost incapable of discovering his or her own true purpose. With all of this, one begins to search for that true purpose, always unsure if it is the right path. These feelings come from within, fueled by a catalyst that instills these doubts. However, with its great power, the catalyst is undefinable and unyielding. It is then within question if one can truly move away from the catalyst or really understand how one should feel when affected by it."
Author: Aubrey Williams
6. "I do not want that our loyalty as Indians should be in the slightest way affected by any competitive loyalty whether that loyalty arises out of our religion, out of our culture or out of our language. I want all people to be Indians first, Indian last and nothing else but Indians."
Author: B.R. Ambedkar
7. "A word is used "correctly" when the average hearer will be affected by it in the way intended. This is a psychological, not a literary, definition of "correctness". The literary definition would substitute, for the average hearer, a person of high education living a long time ago; the purpose of this definition is to make it difficult to speak or write correctly."
Author: Bertrand Russell
8. "So here I am, my affections torn between a postal service that never feeds me but can tackle a challenge and one that gives me free tape and prompt service but won't help me out when I can't remember a street name. The lesson to draw from this, of course, is that when you move from one country to another you have to accept that there are some things that are better and some things worse, and there is nothing you can do about it. That may not be the profoundest of insights to take away from a morning's outing, but I did get a free doughnut as well, so on balance I guess I'm happy."
Author: Bill Bryson
9. "The objective of the demonstrators is to win the affection of the armed agents of the government. Most of the Kiev police have now pledged their support for the people."
Author: Bob Schaffer
10. "Positiveness of Soul is favourably gained through the Love Nature, rather than through mental prowess. Though attaining positiveness of Soul through the mind is possible; it is inferior to the positiveness that has been developed through the Love Nature (one's inner Soul nature to love and have affection.)"
Author: C. JoyBell C.
11. "More than a hygenic method of disposing of the dead, cremation enabled lovers and comrades to be mingled together for eternity:The ashes of Domitian were mingled with those of Julia; of Achilles with those of Patroclus; All Urnes contained not single ashes; Without confused burnings they affectionately compounded their bones; passionately endeavouring to continue their living Unions. And when distance of death denied such conjunctions, unsatisfied affections concieved some satisfaction to be neighbours in the grave, to lye Urne by Urne, and touch but in their names."
Author: Catharine Arnold
12. "It might have sounded silly, but Affenlight loved the way Owen always picked these same two mugs and even, presumably, went so far as to rinse them in the sink when they were dirty. Such consistency suggested, or seemed to suggest, that Owen found their afternoons worth repeating, even down to the smallest detail. This was the dreamy, paradisiacal side of domestic ritual: when all the days were possessed of the same minutiae precisely because you wanted them to be."
Author: Chad Harbach
13. "I believe we can prevent or delay most disease until the 9th or 10th decade. The goal is to prevent anything that can affect your quality of life prior to those years! By the time many of us get to the 9th or 10th decade, who knows where the new medical and science will take us? I am an optimist!"
Author: David Agus
14. "A lot of what we do in relationships involve compromises. A lot of our relationships are exchanges in currencies like affection, acceptance, money, sexual and other sorts of pleasure, shelter, convenience, belonging etc. The self in relation with the communal is always trading something. The important question is what aspect of the self should not be traded."
Author: Dew Platt
15. "The politician in my country seeks votes, affection and respect, in that order. With few notable exceptions, they are simply men who want to be loved."
Author: Edward R. Murrow
16. "Liebe auf den ersten Blick existierte. Vielleicht nicht unbedingt zwischen Männern und Frauen. Aber definitiv zwischen Frauen und ganz bestimmten Klamotten. Ich sah es auf den ersten Blick – dieses Kleid und ich, wir waren füreinander geschaffen."
Author: Emilia Polo
17. "There's more to people than some defined label," said Arcie. "There are more than straight good and evil, aye, even more than law or disorders or fence-sittin. There's prejudice, whimsey, affection, superstition, habit, upbringing, alliance, pride, society, morals, animosity, preference, values, religion, circumstance, humor, perversity, honor, vengeance, jealousy, frustration...hundreds o' factors, from the past and in every present moment, as decides what some one person'll do in an individious situation."
Author: Eve Forward
18. "And, after boasting this way of my tolerance, I come to the admission that it has a limit. Conduct may be founded on the hard rock or the wet marshes, but after a certain point I don't care what it's founded on. When I came back from the East last autumn I felt that I wanted the world to be in uniform and at a sort of moral attention forever; I wanted no more riotous excursions with privileged glimpses into the human heart. Only Gatsby, the man who gives his name to this book, was exempt from my reaction—Gatsby, who represented everything for which I have an unaffected scorn."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
19. "The average married man, if he had the energy, could have sex with several women without diminishing the affection and desire he felt for his wife. But women like Judith- unlike truly liberated females like Barbara and Arlene- could not simply accept a man as a temporary instrument of pleasure; they wanted soft lights and promises, not just a penis but the man attached to it."
Author: Gay Talese
20. "Che pensieri soavi,che speranze, che cori, o Silvia mia!Quale allor ci appariala vita umana e il fato!Quando sovviemmi di cotanta speme,un affetto mi premeacerbo e sconsolato,e tornami a doler di mia sventura.O natura, o natura,perché non rendi poiquel che prometti allor? perché di tantoinganni i figli tuoi?"
Author: Giacomo Leopardi
21. "I'm no more modern than ancient, no more French than Chinese, and the idea of a native country, that is to say, the imperative to live on one bit of ground marked red or blue on the map and to hate the other bits in green or black, has always seemed to me narrow-minded, blinkered and profoundly stupid. I am a soul brother to everything that lives, to the giraffe and to the crocodile as much as to man."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
22. "It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look. To affect teh quality of the day--that is the highest of arts."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
23. "I have to know.""Know what?" Jaden demanded."Well, for starters, I have to know why you left without even saying goodbye." Without thinking, he caressed the soft curve of her cheek with his thumb, stroking it affectionately as he stared into her green eyes. "But more importantly, I need to know why a woman I barely know has left such a gaping hole in my chest, why when I open my eyes in the morning I'm disappointed that you aren't there, and why every song on the radio sounds like Frank Sinatra. Why is it that one night with you felt more like a thousand?"
Author: Ivan Rusilko
24. "We all collide. It made him think of Newton's third law of motion:for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It was like, whenyou collided with someone, they would not be in the same position as theyused to be. Everyone equally affected one another."
Author: J.R. Lenk
25. "I am very aware that there are many of you who have friends and loved ones in the areas affected by this storm who have been displaced or who have not yet been accounted for."
Author: Jo Bonner
26. "Nothing's wrong. Everything's right. Things couldn't be righter. Things could be less tired. They could be less busy. They could be less caffeinated. But they couldn't be righter."
Author: John Green
27. "On the contrary, Christian Hedonists are persuaded with Edwards that the only affections that magnify God's value are those that come from true apprehensions of His glory. If the feast of worship is rare in the land, it is because there is a famine of the Word of God (Amos 8:11-12)."
Author: John Piper
28. "To be loved is the birthright of every mewling babe, but, once grown, a man is not assured of such affection."
Author: Katherine Marsh
29. "God help me, how Tolstoy sweats over drying up people's sources of life, of wild and joyful life, drying them up and making the world fat with the love of God and everyman. ... But the man is old, after all, his fountains of life run dry, without a trace remaining of human affections. ... Only someone who has become slow and watertight with old age, satiated and hardened with pleasure, will go to youth and say, Renounce! ... And yet the youth renounces nothing, but sins royally for forty years. Such is the course of nature!"
Author: Knut Hamsun
30. "Life is too sweet and too short to express our affection with just our thumbs. Touch is meant for more than a keyboard."
Author: Kristin Armstrong
31. "The impression made upon them by the first view of a camel equipped and loaded for the desert. Custom, so fatal to other novelties, affects this feeling but little. At the end of long journeys with caravans, after years of residence with the Bedawin, the Western-born, wherever they may be, will stop and wait the passing of the stately brute. The charm is not in the figure, which not even love can make beautiful; nor in the movement, the noiseless stepping, or the broad careen. As is the kindness of the sea to a ship, so that of the desert to its creature. It clothes him with all its mysteries;"
Author: Lew Wallace
32. "I write books because I have always been fascinated by stories and language, and because I love thinking about what makes people tick. Writing a story... 'The Giver' or any other... is simply an exploration of the nature of behavior: why people do what they do, how it affects others, how we change and grow, and what decisions we make along the way."
Author: Lois Lowry
33. "Michael is a funny character, for whom I have a great deal of affection. He sat across his desk and seemed to be a bit of a blunt fellow. We began talking about the characters and he opened up about his vision."
Author: Madeleine Stowe
34. "I can retain neither respect nor affection for government which has been moving from wrong to wrong in order to defend its immorality"
Author: Mahatma Gandhi
35. "As I listened, it occurred to me that interest in and affection for the animals that share the planet with us may be a more unifying force than any other."
Author: Nick Clooney
36. "Personal affection is a luxury you can have only after all your enemies are eliminated. Until then, everyone you love is a hostage, sapping your courage and corrupting your judgment."
Author: Orson Scott Card
37. "Had she any respect for him at all, his words would've affected her. But no value accompanies comments spewed from the mouth of a brute."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
38. "Either the kid was naturally hyper or he was hopped up on enough caffeine to give a heart attack to a water buffalo."
Author: Rick Riordan
39. "[L]asting love is something a person has to decide to experience. Lifelong monogamous devotion is just not natural—not for women even, and emphatically not for men. It requires what, for lack of a better term, we can call an act of will. . . . This isn't to say that a young man can't hope to be seized by love. . . . But whether the sheer fury of a man's feelings accurately gauges their likely endurance is another question. The ardor will surely fade, sooner or later, and the marriage will then live or die on respect, practical compatibility, simple affection, and (these days, especially) determination. With the help of these things, something worthy of the label 'love' can last until death. But it will be a different kind of love from the kind that began the marriage. Will it be a richer love, a deeper love, a more spiritual love? Opinions vary. But it's certainly a more impressive love."
Author: Robert Wright
40. "This was how it was with travel: one city gives you gifts, another robs you. One gives you the heart's affections, the other destroys your soul. Cities and countries are as alive and feeling, as fickle and uncertain as people. Their degrees of love and devotion are as varying as with any human relation. Just as one is good, another is bad."
Author: Roman Payne
41. "«Ai tempi di mio nonno» dice il generale «si metteva una pinta di vino davanti a ogni invitato. Era la dose che toccava a ciascuno. Una pinta, un litro e mezzo. "Vino da tavola" veniva chiamato. Mio padre raccontava che si metteva del vino da tavola in caraffe di cristallo anche davanti agli invitati del re. Una per ciascuno degli ospiti. Ecco perché si chiamava vino da tavola: perché stava lì e si poteva berne a volontà. I vini di qualità venivano serviti a parte. Questa era la regola che vigeva per le bevande alla mensa del re»."
Author: Sándor Márai
42. "As I look upon life and within myself I see two different realities, one is where everything is affected by the actions and choices of others and the other reality I see is where I am the creator and so nothing is affected but everything is connected wholehearted and lovingly by a vibrant and energetic core that I know emanates from a center where everything is possible because of the creative and all powerful force I have within me. This force radiates stronger and stronger from a place of Unconditional Love where All I see is Joy and Beauty unfolding and all I feel is Peace and Bliss on every level. Everything is AS IS and I am the "I AM". I SEE ONE HEART! ONE LOVE! ONE LIFE! Lets LIVE as ONE and LOVE as ONE so we can BE ONE!"
Author: Sean D. Hamilton
43. "When we see the relatedness of ourselves to the universe, that we do not live as isolated entities, untouched by what is going on around us, not affecting what is going on around us, when we see through that, that we are interrelated, then we can see that to protect others is to protect ourselves, and to protect ourselves is to protect others."
Author: Sharon Salzberg
44. "Il piccolo elfo ebbe l'impressione di essere diventato meno orfano. Era una sensazione curiosa. Come se la solitudine fosse un muro di vetro che per la prima volta mostrava incrinature e crepe. Era l'ultimo di una stirpe distrutta, ma dal passato gli arrivava un po' dell'affetto che il presente gli negava. Le sue dita passavano e ripassavano sugli oggetti: erano stati fatti per lui; gli erano stati lasciati. Qualcuno gli aveva voluto bene mentre li faceva, mentre glieli lasciava. Sperò che Morte fosse un posto da dove il suo papà potesse vederlo."
Author: Silvana De Mari
45. "As an agent, I functioned like a guy. But the fact that I was a woman affected everything."
Author: Sue Mengers
46. "All the revision in the world will not save a bad first draft: for the architecture of the thing comes, or fails to come, in the first conception, and revision only affects the detail and ornament, alas!"
Author: T. E. Lawrence
47. "Son, brother, father, lover, friend. There is room in the heart for all the affections, as there is room in heaven for all the stars."
Author: Victor Hugo
48. "Armadillos make affectionate pets, if you need affection that much."
Author: Will Cuppy
49. "We pick and choose who to love. We pick and choose who to hate. We pick and choose our friends and ignore those that invade our space.We pick and choose who should live. We pick and choose who should die. We pick and choose who we say hello to and ignore a dying loners cry. We pick and choose who to be real to. We pick and choose to be fake to. We pick and choose who is worthy of our affections or beneath us or we can relate to.We pick and choose our dreams. We pick and choose our destiny. We pick and choose what we think will bring out the best in me.We pick and choose to reach the pinnacle. We pick and choose because of our power of choice. We sometimes pick and choose while never really considering the consequences of our voice."
Author: Willis Robinson
50. "We live in a globalising world. That means that all of us, consciously or not, depend on each other. Whatever we do or refrain from doing affects the lives of people who live in places we'll never visit."
Author: Zygmunt Bauman

From slavery to segregation, we remember that America did not always live up to its ideals. In fact, we often fell far short of them. But we also learned that fundamental to our national character is the drive to live out the true meaning of our creed."
