1. "Monday Night Football started in 1970, and when it started, it was something extremely special because sports had not been aired in prime time. So, it was a novelty, and a lot of people thought it wouldn't work, and, of course, it worked spectacularly well."
Author: Al Michaels

3. "Ma mère s'occupait plutôt de l'épicerie, mon père du café. D'un coté la bousculade de midi, le temps minuté, les clientes n'aiment pas attendre, c'est un monde debout, aux volontés multiples, une bouteille de bière, un paquet d'épingles neige, méfiant, à rassurer constamment, vous verrez cette marque-là c'est bien meilleur. Du théâtre, du bagout. Ma mère sortait lessivée, rayonnante, de sa boutique. De l'autre côté, les petits verres pépères, la tranquillité assise, le temps sans horloge, des hommes installés là pour des heures. Inutile de se précipiter, pas besoin de faire l'article ni même la conversation, les clients causent pour deux. Ça tombe bien, mon père est lunatique, c'est ma mère qui le dit."
Author: Annie Ernaux
4. "... comme il n'existe point de marchands d'amis, les hommes n'ont plus d'amis. Si tu veux un ami, apprivoise-moi!Que faut-il faire? Dit le petit prince.Il faut être très patient, répondit le renard. Tu t'assoiras d'abord un peu loin de moi, comme ça, dans l'herbe. Je te regarderai du coin de l'œil et tu ne diras rien. Le langage est source de malentendus. Mais, chaque jour, tu pourras t'asseoir un peu plus près..."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

Author: Bernard Henri Lévy
6. "De azzal, ha valaki önmagával harcol, az a baj, hogy akkor is veszít, ha nyer. Egy ido után – sérülten, kimerülten – vagy elfogadja, hogy nové kell válnia – hogy no –, vagy vége. Ez a serdülokor brutális, radikális igazsága – hogy sokszor nem más, mint hosszú és fájdalmas irtóhadjárat. Azok az öncsonkító lányok karjukon és combjukon a pengenyomok rácsozatával csak arra emlékeztetik magukat, hogy a testük csatatér. Ha a borotvát nem veszi be a gyomruk, egy tetoválás is megteszi; vagy akár a fülbelövo pisztoly villámgyors csattanása Claire Szalonjában. Ez az. Itt is van. Megjelölted a tested, hogy visszaköveteld önmagad, hogy emlékeztesd magad arra, hol vagy: odabenn. Valahol. Valahol ott benn."
Author: Caitlin Moran

8. "Mijail me agarra del pelo, y es tal el dolor que me saltan las lágrimas. Me arrastra por el pasillo mientras yo trato en vano de aferrarme a algo, lo que sea. Llegamos a una puerta la abre, y justo antes de empujarme dentro, reparo en el letrero: es el baño turco.Tropiezo por entre la oscuridad y el calor, y caigo de rodillas y manos contra un suelo de baldosas blancas y verdes. El vapor del baño todavía empaña el aire, y siento como si me hubieran arrojado a una nube de niebla. No puedo ver, no puedo respirar. La luz principal proviene del pasillo, y el cuerpo de Mijail se recorta contra ella cuando entra y cierra la puerta tras sí. Espero que me pegue, o me viole, o me mate.No espero el lobo."
Author: Claudia Gray

12. "She never managed to find herself in these books no matter how hard she tried, exhuming traits from between the pages and donning them for an hour, a day, a week. We think in some ways, we have all done this our whole lives, searching for the book that will give us the keys to ourselves, let us into a wholly formed personality as though it were a furnished room to let. As though we could walk in and look around and say to the gray-haired landlady behind us, "We'll take it."
Author: Eleanor Brown
13. "Inside the mirrored elevator, Mulch used a telescopic pointer to push P for the penthouse. For the first few months he had jumped to reach the button, but that was undignified behavior for a millionaire. And besides, he was certain that Art could hear the thumping from the security desk."
Author: Eoin Colfer
14. "You're Only the fairest when your fairest to yourself"
Author: Gail Carson Levine
15. "Why are all reflections lovelier than what we call reality? -- not so grand or so strong, it may be, but always lovelier? Fair as is the gliding sloop on the shining sea, the wavering, trembling, unresting sail below is fairer still...All mirrors are magic mirrors. The commonest room is a room in a poem when I turn to the glass...There must be a truth involved in it, though we may but in part lay hold of the meaning."
Author: George MacDonald
16. "One day an army of gray-haired women may quietly take over the Earth!"
Author: Gloria Steinem
17. "L'action, pour certains hommes, est d'autant plus impraticable que le désir est plus fort. La méfiance d'eux-mêmes les embarrasse, la crainte de déplaire les épouvante; d'ailleurs, les affections profondes ressemblent aux honnêtes femmes; elles ont peur d'être découvertes, et passent dans la vie les yeux baissés."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
18. "Nothing can be repaired or advanced but only accepted"
Author: Hanif Kureishi
19. "An overseer called him a traitor, and Rytlock killed him. That's how he became an overseer. Later, a legionnaire called him a deserter, and Rytlock killed him as well. That's how he became a legionnaire."
Author: J. Robert King
20. "Bricks could be used to make a billion dollars. It's easy! All you need to do is fill up a shopping cart full of bricks, park it outside of a grocery store, and wait for the coming hyperinflation. Then, when some soccer mom walks by with a shopping cart full of cash, to purchase a loaf of bread, you trade your tangible assets for her imaginary money and boom! you are now a billionaire."
Author: Jarod Kintz
21. "J'ai commencé ma vie comme je la finirai sans doute : au milieu des livres. Dans le bureau de mon grand-père, il y en avait partout ; défense était de les faire épousseter sauf une fois l'an, avant la rentrée d'octobre. Je ne savais pas encore lire que, déjà, je les révérais, ces pierres levées : droites ou penchées, serrées comme des briques sur les rayons de la bibliothèque ou noblement espacées en allées de menhirs, je sentais que la prospérité de notre famille en dépendait..."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
22. "Oh, misanthropy and sourness. Gary wanted to enjoy being a man of wealth and leisure, but the country was making it none too easy. All around him, millions of newly minted American millionaires were engaged in the identical pursuit of feeling extraordinary - of buying the perfect Victorian, of skiing the virgin slope, of knowing the chef personally, of locating the beach that had no footprints. There were further tens of millions of young Americans who didn't have money but were nonetheless chasing the Perfect Cool. And meanwhile the sad truth was that not everyone could be extraordinary, not everyone could be extremely cool; because whom would this leave to be ordinary? Who would perform the thankless work of being comparatively uncool?"
Author: Jonathan Franzen
23. "The more you pursue distractions, the less effective any particular distraction is, and so I'd had to up various dosages, until, before I knew it, I was checking my e-mail every ten minutes, and my plugs of tobacco were getting ever larger, and my two drinks a night had worsened to four, and I'd achieved such deep mastery of computer solitaire that my goal was no longer to win a game but to win two or more games in a row--a kind of meta-solitaire whose fascination consisted not in playing the cards but in surfing the streaks of wins and losses."
Author: Jonathan Franzen
24. "The dilemma is, in the United States, each penniless citizen believes that, with luck, he might become a millionaire; and so doesn't want to put restraints on "robber barons"-he might become one one day!"

25. "His lips were approaching hers, but she could not taste sin. Not yet. Not until she knew the name of this golden haired man, so her soul could sing his name for the rest of eternity."
Author: Katherine Givens
26. "A huge cloud of dust is not a beautiful thing to look at. Very few painters have done portraits of huge clouds of dust or included them in their landscapes or still lifes. Film directors rarely choose huge clouds of dust to play the lead roles in romantic comedies, and as far as my research has shown, a huge cloud of dust has never placed higher than twenty-fifth in a beauty pageant. Nevertheless, as the Baudelaire orphans stumbled around the cell, dropped each half of the battering ram and listening to the sound of crows flying in circles outside, they stared at the huge cloud of dust as if it were a thing of great beauty."
Author: Lemony Snicket
27. "There were upsides to the whole mess. While Douglas was holding me hostage, I'd met a girl—I mean, screw dating websites and house parties; apparently all the really eligible ladies are being held in cages these days. I would have liked to see Brid fill out a dating questionnaire, though. What would she put? "Hi, my name is Bridin Blackthorn. I'm next in line to rule the local werewolf pack. I like long walks on the beach and destroying my enemies. I have four older brothers, so watch your step. We'll be forming a queue to the left for potential suitors."And, trust me, there would be a queue."
Author: Lish McBride
28. "The Other Side of a Mirror I sat before my glass one day,And conjured up a vision bare,Unlike the aspects glad and gay,That erst were found reflected there -The vision of a woman, wildWith more than womanly despair.Her hair stood back on either sideA face bereft of loveliness.It had no envy now to hideWhat once no man on earth could guess.It formed the thorny aureoleOf hard, unsanctified distress.Her lips were open - not a soundCame though the parted lines of red,Whate'er it was, the hideous woundIn silence and secret bled.No sigh relieved her speechless woe,She had no voice to speak her dread.And in her lurid eyes there shoneThe dying flame of life's desire,Made mad because its hope was gone,And kindled at the leaping fireOf jealousy and fierce revenge,And strength that could not change nor tire.Shade of a shadow in the glass,O set the crystal surface free!Pass - as the fairer visions pass -Nor ever more return, to beThe ghost of a distracted hour,That heard me whisper: - 'I am she!"
Author: Mary Elizabeth Coleridge

Author: Nick Hornby
33. "I had a veritable rnania for finishing whatever I began, which often got me into difficulties. On one occasion I started to read the works of Voltaire when I learned, to my dismay, that there were close on one hundred large volumes in small print which that monster had written while drinking seventy-two cups of black coffee per diem. It had to be done, but when I laid aside the last book I was very glad, and said, "Never more!"
Author: Nikola Tesla

37. "Promise me you'll marry me. Not now. Someday. Because I need to know."Claire felt a flutter inside, like a bird trying to fly, and a rush of heat that made her dizzy. And something else, something fragile as a soap bubble,and just as beautiful. Joy, in the middle of all this horror and heartbreak."Yes," she whispered back. "I promise."And she kissed him, and kissed him, and kissed him, while the sun came up and bathed Morganville in one last, shining day."
Author: Rachel Caine

Chispas de algo hermoso y formidable. Y algunas chispas brillan más que otras"

42. "And so the game went on in this manner, the throng of children playing keep-away from a bowling ball tossed back and forth across the valley by two plump ogres. The air filled with shrieks and cheers and shouts of laughter as daring players thrilled at the sport. That is, all but the few poor souls knocked dizzy by a bowling ball and captured. No laughter rose from behind bars because those in the birdcage knew what was in store for them - soon to be lunch for a couple of hungry ogres. Now you might be thinking, ‘Wasn't Gavin swallowed by a wolf earlier? And didn't he call it fun? And didn't he tell that raven-haired girl that being swallowed by a bear doesn't hurt?' All true, all true. But, here's a secret you might not know. Ogres chew their food. Luckily, it's only the first bite that stings."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
43. "About five meters ahead, Nico was swinging his black sword with one hand, holding the scepter of Diocletian aloft with the other. He kept shouting orders at the legionnaires, but they paid him no attention.Of course not, Frank thought. He's Greek.[...]Jason's face was already beaded with sweat. He kept shouting in Latin: "Form ranks!" But the dead legionnaires wouldn't listen to him, either.[...]"Make way!" Frank shouted. To his surprise, the dead legionnaires parted for him. The closest ones turned and stared at him with blank eyes, as if waiting for further orders."Oh, great..." Frank mumbled."
Author: Rick Riordan

Author: Samuel Johnson

Ashryver EyesThe fairest eyes, from legends oldOf brightest blue, ringed with gold Bright blue eyes, ringed with gold. A strangled cry came out of him. How many times had he looked into those eyes? How many times had he seen her avert her gaze, that one bit proof she couldn't hide, from the king?Celaena Sardothien wasn't in league with Aelin Ashryver Galathynius.Celaena Sardothien was Aelin Ashryver Galathynius, heir to the throne and righful Queen of Terrasen."
Author: Sarah J. Maas
46. "What to AcceptThe fact of mountains. The actualityOf any stone — by kicking, if necessary. The need to ignore stupid people, While restraining one's natural impulseTo murder them. The change from your dollar, Be it no more than a penny, For without a pretense of universal penuryThere can be no honor between rich and poor.Love, unconditionally, or until proven false.The inevitability of cancer and/orHeart disease. The dialogue as written, Once you've taken the role. Failure, Gracefully. Any hospitalityYou're willing to return. The airEach city offers you to breathe.The latest hit. Assistance.All accidents. The end."
Author: Thomas M. Disch
47. "She sank with an enormous sigh that carried all rigidity like a mythical fluid from her, down next to him; so weak she couldn't help him undress her; it took him 20 minutes, rolling, arranging her this way and that, as if she thought, he were some scaled-up, short-haired, poker-faced little girl with a Barbie doll. She may have fallen asleep once or twice. She awoke at last to find herself getting laid; she'd come in on a sexual crescendo in progress, like a cut to a scene where the camera's already moving. Outside a fugue of guitars had begun, and she counted each electronic voice as it came in, till she reached six or so and recalled only three of the Paranoids played guitars; so others must be plugging in."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
48. "And then the rains came. They came down from the hills and up from the sound. And it rained a sickness. And it rained a fear. And it rained an odor. And it rained a murder. And it rained dangers and pale eggs of the beast. Rain poured for days, unceasing. Flooding occurred. The wells filled with reptiles. The basements filled with fossils. Mossy-haired lunatics roamed the dripping peninsulas. Moisture gleamed on the beak of the raven. Ancient Shaman's rained from their homes in dead tree trunks, clacked their clamshell teeth in the drowned doorways of forests. Rain hissed on the freeway. It hissed at the prows of fishing boats. It ate the old warpaths, spilled the huckleberries, ran into the ditches. Soaking. Spreading. Penetrating. And it rained an omen. And it rained a poison. And it rained a pigment. And it rained a seizure."
Author: Tom Robbins
49. "Ethiopians say the their gods are flat-nosed and dark,Thracians that theirs are blue-eyed and red-haired. If oxen and horses and lions had hands and were able to draw with their hands and do the same things as men, horses would draw the shapes of gods to look like horses and oxen to look like oxen, and each would make the gods' bodies have the same shape as they themselves had."
Author: Xenophanes
