Author: Alexander Gordon Smith

Author: Alexander Von Humboldt
4. "From RosieRo AlexSubject Job PromotionNothing is impossible, Alex. It was there all the time. I just wasn't reaching out far enough, that's all.Nothing is impossible.

I would love to return that hug and kisses to you now! but then again, perhaps some things just might be beyond our reach after all."
Author: Cecelia Ahern
5. "It's hard for everyone isn't it? Anyone who says it's easy is a liar. There'sthis huge divide between me and Alex right now because I feel like we're livingin such different worlds, I don't know what to talk about with him anymore.And we used to be able to talk all night. He phones once a week and Ilisten to what he's been up to during the week and try to bite my tongueevery time I go into another Katie story. Truth is I have nothing other to talkabout but her and I know it bores people. I think I used to be interestingonce upon a time."
Author: Cecelia Ahern
6. "Many writers, especially male ones, have told us that it is the decease of the father which opens the prospect of one's own end, and affords an unobstructed view of the undug but awaiting grave that says 'you're next.' Unfilial as this may seem, that was not at all so in my own case. It was only when I watched Alexander [my own son] being born that I knew at once that my own funeral director had very suddenly, but quite unmistakably, stepped onto the stage. I was surprised by how calmly I took this, but also by how reluctant I was to mention it to my male contemporaries."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
7. "Max had to think about these new developments. He hadn't liked getting hit by a rock--his stomach still ached from then rock Judith had thrown--but then again, when his team had used rocks on Alexander, it had caused him to surrender. Now the Bad Guys only had three soldiers left, which would make victory for Max's team more likely. So now it made perfect sense. He was wrong to ban rocks, or even animals. The key was to use all the weapons at one's disposal, but to just make sure you won when you used them."
Author: Dave Eggers

Author: Erin McCarthy
10. "Et je craignais chaque jour davantage pour Alexandra Mikhaïlovna. Sa vie triste, monotone, s'éteignait sous mes yeux. Sa santé empirait de jour en jour. Une sorte de désespoir semblait s'être emparé de son âme. Elle était visiblement sous l'impression de quelque chose d'inconnu, d'indéfini, dont elle-même ne pouvait se rendre compte, quelque chose de terrible et en même temps d'incompréhensible, mais qu'elle acceptait comme la croix de sa vie condamnée."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Author: Gail Carriger
12. "As to your sister, she is quite a peach, is she not? You have been hiding her from me." Lady Maccon would not be goaded. "Really, Channing, she is practically"—she paused to do some calculations—"one-twentieth your age. Or worse. Don't you want some maturity in your life?" "Good God, no!" "Well, how about some human decency?" "Now you're just being insulting." Alexia huffed in amusement. Channing raised blond eyebrows at her, handsome devil that he was. "Ah, but this is what I enjoy so much about immortality. The decades may pass for me, but the ladies, well, they will keep coming along all young and beautiful, now, won't they?" "Channing, someone should lock you away." "Now, Lady Maccon, that transpires tomorrow night, remember?"
Author: Gail Carriger

Author: Gail Carriger

Author: Jodi Picoult
17. "If you don't take it, I'm going to throw it away," Alex cheerfully retorted. "I don't want to know what time it is. I don't want to know what day it is or where I am. None of that matters."
Author: Jon Krakauer
18. "Like the burning of the ancient library at Alexandria or the supremely ignorant incineration of stacks of invaluable Mayan codices, the loss of knowledge we are experiencing as the last of the traditional elders pass from this physical plane of existence without heirs to their knowledge- as well as the very environment in which sacred plants grow- is a tragedy occurring right now as you read these lines, one that could well be beyond redemption."
Author: Jonathon Miller Weisberger

Author: Katie Lynn Johnson

Author: L.A. Gilbert

I could destroy them.Option two sounded just marvelous."

Author: Melissa Jensen

Author: Philip Roth
39. "It's always the quiet ones who are the most trouble." - Ethan Coleman to Alex Gold, Undying Blood"
Author: R.J. Morse
40. "The poet discovers that what men value as substances have a higher value as symbols; that Nature is the immense shadow of man. A man's action is only a picture-book of his creed. He does after what he believes. Your condition, your employment, is the fable of you. The world is thoroughly anthropomorphized, as if it had passed through the body and mind of man, and taken his mould and form. Indeed, good poetry is always personification, and heightens every species of force in nature by giving it a human volition. We are advertised that there is nothing to which man is not related; that everything is convertible into every other. The staff in his hand is the radius vector of the sun. The chemistry of this is the chemistry of that. Whatever one act we do, whatever one thing we learn, we are doing and learning all things,—marching in the direction of universal power. Every healthy mind is a true Alexander or Sesostris, building a universal monarchy."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
41. "A prudent silence will frequently be taken for wisdom and a sentence or two cautiously thrown in will sometimes gain the palm of knowledge, while a man well informed but indiscreet and unreserved will not uncommonly talk himself out of all consideration and weight.

Author: Ron Chernow

Alex took hold of my hands and squeezed. "Nothing's changed. I'll be right there, I promise. You might not be able to see me, but I'll be there."
Author: Sarah Alderson
44. "I'm certain Blackmoor will protect you from anything over unusual, my dear." Alex looked at her companion and tilted her head, pretending to consider the statement before turning back to the countess. "I suppose he'll have to do."

47. "Never forget, Alexandros, that this flesh, this body, does not belong to us. Thank God it doesn't. If I thought this stuff was mine, I could not advance a pace into the face of the enemy.

It belongs to the city which gives us all we have and demands no less in requital."
