2. "You would be forgiven for thinking Alex Morningside was a boy. In fact, she would be the first to laugh at this, because, for one thing, she wasn't, and for another, she had an Excellent Sense of Humour. It wasn't that she wanted to be a boy or anything, it was simply that she didn't see much difference in being treated as a girl or boy. Because, after all, everyone is just people. One of the reasons people thought she was a boy was her haircut. Her haircut looked like someone had put a bowl on her head and cut around it. Which is exactly what her uncle had done. Also, they thought she was a boy because her name was Alex. Of course, Alex was short for Alexandra, but neither Alex nor her uncle liked that very much, so they shortened the name. They could have shortened it the other was I suppose - Andra - but she and her uncle preferred Alex."

Une sorte de désespoir semblait s'être emparé de son âme.

Stones don't glow blue or any other color and they certainly don't burn circles on you."The stone wasn't talking.Alexandra considered herself well grounded, yet here she stood, talking to a stone that glowed, burned circles, and refused to answer.A thread of sensation pricked at the edges of her mind, then grew stronger. It mirrored an idea then became clear. Tell no one.What? Looking from side to side, she backed against the wall. Although it felt like someone whispered in her ear, she stood there alone. The day's trauma must have pushed her over the edge, yet the sensation persisted.Tell no one.She froze. Her eyes darted around the room. The muscles in her legs tightened as she prepared to bolt from the room.Alexandra swallowed and licked her lips. "Who would believe me anyway?" she whispered."

11. "Aunt Alexandra was fanatical on the subject of my attire. I could not possibly hope to be a lady if I wore breeches, when I said I could do nothing in a dress, she said I wasn't supposed to do things that required pants. Aunt Alexandra's vision of my deportment involved playing with small stoves, tea sets, and wearing the Add-A-Pearl necklace she gave me when I was born; furthermore, I should be a ray of sunshine in my father's life. I suggested that one could be a ray of sunshine in pants as well, but Aunty said that one had to behave like a sunbeam, that I was born good but had grown progressively worse every year."
Author: Harper Lee

13. "Ever since, two summers ago, Joe Marino had begun to come into her bed, a preposterous fecundity had overtaken the staked plans, out in the side garden where the southwestern sun slanted in through the line of willows each long afternoon. The crooked little tomato branches, pulpy and pale as if made of cheap green paper, broke under the weight of so much fruit; there was something frantic in such fertility, a crying-out like that of children frantic to please. Of plants, tomatoes seemed the most human, eager and fragile and prone to rot. Picking the watery orange-red orbs, Alexandra felt she was cupping a giant lover's testicles in her hand."
Author: John Updike
14. "What are you looking at?" Jordan demanded finally, watching her. "A dragon." When he looked bewildered she lifted her arm and pointed to the sky in the southeast. "Right there—that cloud—what do you see when you look at it?" "A fat cloud." Alexandra rolled her eyes at him. "What else do you see?" He was quiet for a moment studying the sky. "Five more fat clouds and three thin ones."
Author: Judith McNaught
15. "Rich Little Poor Girl: Alexandra Aldrich grew up being told that she lived in a "child's paradise": a largely deserted, 43-room, 200-year-old house on 420 acres in the Hudson River Valley, complete with woods, animals, interesting outbuildings and bohemian tenants who made giant puppets and staged elaborate pageants. The story it tells is so extraordinary, and Aldrich's tone is so baldly honest, that the reader's attention will not flag."

Když už tedy nechcete prijmout moje pozvání, zasloužím si aspon znát vaše jméno. Koneckoncu, práve jste mi zlomila srdce."Dlouho jsem odhodlane mlcela, ale pod nátlakem jeho pohledu nakonec podvolila. "Alex.""To je zkrácenina pro Alexandra?""Alexandrina," opravila jsem ho.Usmá se, jako by mi ušel nejaký vtip. Než jsem se ho stihla zeptat na duvod, sdelil mi ho sám. "To je puvodne recké jméno, znamená to ochránce lidí."Kdo by to jen rekl, dokonce i moje jméno me predurcovalo k tomu, být soucástí téhle uhozené, nikdy nekoncící války. "Já jsem Devon," predstavil se, šarmantne se pri tom uklonil a natáhl ke mne ruku."To je recky neco jako, šílene rád otravuju lidi a nevím, kdy prestat?" zeptala jsem se kousave a nechala jeho ruku bez povšimnutí."

"For as much as Hillary Clinton might hate admitting this about Monica Lewinisky, Eleanor Roosevelt about Missy Le Hand, Queen Alexandra about Lillie Langtry, Lady Nelson about Emma Hamilton, or Jackie about Marilyn, the reality is that despite their intrinsic animosity toward each other, on a a deep level, the wife and the mistress generally have far more in common than they might care to admit and could, had fate dealt them different cards, even been true friends."
Author: Wendy Leigh

It is always easier to lose than to find. What I have is yours if you care enough about me to take it."
Author: Willa Cather
