"[Lizzie Bennington to a reporter who has asked for her opinion about Jack Archer's celebrated thighs.] "When you come back from a set down and bring the match to a final set tiebreak and are a point away from winning the match, only to have what looks like an extremely fit player call a time out because of a cramp and then watch that player sit back and casually converse and laugh while you do your best to keep your mental focus and your body moving so you don't grow cold and cramp yourself, I hardly think you'd concern yourself with his burgeoning manhood, let alone his thighs!"

"Out of all the neighborhoods in Manhattan, Soho in particular had the charged atmosphere of a movie set, populated with passersby who looked like extras from Central Casting, so perfectly did they fit into this environment.

10. "Não entendo. Isso é tão vasto que ultrapassa qualquer entender. Entender é sempre limitado. Mas não entender pode não ter fronteiras. Sinto que sou muito mais completa quando não entendo. Não entender, do modo como falo, é um dom. Não entender, mas não como um simples de espírito. O bom é ser inteligente e não entender. É uma benção estranha, como ter loucura sem ser doida. É um desinteresse manso, é uma doçura de burrice. Só que de vez em quando vem a inquietação: quero entender um pouco. Não demais: mas pelo menos entender que não entendo."
Author: Clarice Lispector

Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in the World Trade Center towers... and for that reason alone, our nation should make absolutely sure that what gets built on 'Ground Zero' is an inspiring tribute to all who loved the Twin Towers, worked in them, and died there."
Author: David Shuster

Author: Elias Canetti

"TYRONE[Stares at him -- impressed.]Yes, there's the makings of a poet in you all right.[Then protesting uneasily]But that's morbid craziness about not being wanted and loving death.EDMUND[Sardonically]The makings of a poet. No, I'm afraid I'm like the guy who is always panhandling for a smoke. He hasn't even got the makings. He's got only the habit. I couldn't touch what I tried to tell you just now. I just stammered.

18. "O principal é não mentir. Quem mente para si mesmo e dá ouvido à sua própria mentira chega a tal extremo que não consegue ver nenhuma verdade em si ou naqueles que o rodeiam e, por conseguinte, perde completamente o respeito por si e pelos outros. (...) Quem mente a si próprio pode ser o primeiro a ofender-se. Às vezes, é tão agradável uma pessoa se ofender, não é verdade? O indivíduo sabe que ninguém o injuriou, que tudo não passa de simples invenção, que ele próprio mentiu e exagerou apenas para criar um quadro, para fazer de um grão uma montanha - sabe tudo e, no entanto, se ofende. Ofende-se a ponto se sentir prazer na ofensa e, desse modo, atinge o verdadeiro ódio..."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
19. "For in the latter days of that passionate life that lay now so far behind him, the conception of a free and equal manhood had become a very real thing to him. He had hoped, as indeed his age had hoped, rashly taking it for granted, that the sacrifice of the many to the few would some day cease, that a day was near when every child born of woman should have a fair and assured chance of happiness. And here, after two hundred years, the same hope, still unfulfilled, cried passionately through the city. After two hundred years, he knew, greater than ever, grown with the city to gigantic proportions, were poverty and helpless labour and all the sorrows of his time."
Author: H.G. Wells

Author: Hermann Hesse

24. "I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling."
Author: Jack Kerouac
25. "But then I realized, they didn't mean their own mothers. Not those weak women, those victims. Drug addicts, shopaholics, cookie bakers. They didn't mean the women who let them down, who failed to help them into womanhood. They didn't mean the mothers washing dishes wishing they'd never married, the ones in the ER, saying they fell down the stairs, not the ones in prison saying loneliness is the human condition.They wanted the real mother, the blood mother, the great womb, mother of a fierce compassion, a woman large enough to hold all the pain, to carry it away. What we needed was someone who bled, someone deep and rich as a field, a wide hipped mother, auwesome, immense, women like huge soft couches, mothers coursing with blood, mothers big enough, wide enough, for us to hide in, to sink down to the bottom of, mothers who would breathe for us when we could not breathe anymore, mothers who would fight for us, who would kill for us, and die for us."
Author: Janet Fitch

Author: Joe Elliott

Author: John Boyle O'Reilly
29. "I have said that Texas is a state of mind, but I think it is more than that. It is a mystique closely approximating a religion. And this is true to the extent that people either passionately love Texas or passionately hate it and, as in other religions, few people dare to inspect it for fear of losing their bearings in mystery or paradox. But I think there will be little quarrel with my feeling that Texas is one thing. For all its enormous range of space, climate, and physical appearance, and for all the internal squabbles, contentions, and strivings, Texas has a tight cohesiveness perhaps stronger than any other section of America. Rich, poor, Panhandle, Gulf, city, country, Texas is the obsession, the proper study, and the passionate possession of all Texans."
Author: John Steinbeck
30. "Hij kwam niet verder, want Stalin explodeerde opnieuw. 'We hebben die verdomde atoombom van jou niet nodig om te vechten en te winnen! Wat we nodig hebben zijn socialistische zielen en harten! Wie voelt dat hij nooit overwonnen kan worden, kan ook nooit overwonnen worden!''Voor zover iemand geen atoombom op hem laat vallen', zei Allan.'Ik zal het kapitalisme vernietigen! Hoor je dat? Ik zal iedere afzonderlijke kapitalist vernietigen! En ik begin met jou, hond, als je ons niet helpt met die bom!'Allan wilde echter niet langer aan tafel zitten en beledigingen aanhoren. Hij was naar Moskou gekomen om te helpen, niet om uitgescholden te worden. Stalin mocht het zelf uitzoeken.'Ik heb iets bedacht', zei Allan.'En dat is?' vroeg Stalin boos.'Zou je die snor van je niet eens afscheren?'Daarmee was het diner voorbij, want de tolk viel flauw."
Author: Jonas Jonasson
31. "Muita coisa aconteceu nesses cinco anos, e tão rapidamente que um belo dia achei-me estranho a mim mesmo, como um cego que de súbito recuperasse a vista diante de um espelho."
Author: José Eduardo Agualusa
32. "I never really even tried. But if I'm not a New York actress, what am I? I'm a person who takes a subway from the outer boroughs to lower Manhattan office every morning, who spends her days answering phones and doing copying, who is too disconsolate when she gets back to her apartment at night to do anything but sit on the couch and stare vacantly at reality TV shows until she falls asleep. Oh Godm it really was true, wasn't it? I really was a secretary."
Author: Julie Powell
33. "Rafe hadn't sworn in front of a lady since he was fifteen and said something unacceptable in his mother's hearing. Though he'd been twice her size already, she grabbed him by his hair queue and dragged him to her boudoir, where she proceeded to wash his mouth out with lavendar soap. He had been vilely sick, to this day couldn't bear the scent of lavendar, anhd watched his tongue around females of all ages and social rank."
Author: Laurie Alice Eakes
34. "La niña y el hermano pequeño lloran el uno junto al otro, sellados por una desesperación de sangre que no pueden compartir con nadie. Thanh los mantiene abrazados, acaricia sus rostros, sus manos. Llora por sus llantos, llora también por el llanto de la madre. Por amor a la niña.La madre. Se ha girado hacia el barco. No le vemos la cara. Da media vuelta. Va hacia las rejas, se apoya en la reja al lado de los hijos que le quedan. Llora sin ruido, bajito, ya no tiene fuerzas. Ya está muerta. Al igual que Thanh acaricia el cuerpo de sus dos hijos separados del otro, su hermano mayor, ese hijo perdido por el amor de su madre, un error de Dios."
Author: Marguerite Duras
35. "And he was seldom out of sight of the new bridges, which had married beautiful womanly Brooklyn to her rich uncle, Manhattan; had put the city's hand out to the country; and were the end of the past because they spanned not only distance and deep water but dreams and time."
Author: Mark Helprin
36. "Slowly, even though I thought it would never happen, New York lost its charm for me. I remember arriving in the city for the first time, passing with my parents through the First World's Club bouncers at Immigration, getting into a massive cab that didn't have a moment to waste, and falling in love as soon as we shot onto the bridge and I saw Manhattan rise up through the looks of parental terror reflected in the window. I lost my virginity in New York, twice (the second one wanted to believe he was the first so badly). I had my mind blown open by the combination of a liberal arts education and a drug-popping international crowd. I became tough. I had fun. I learned so much.But now New York was starting to feel empty, a great party that had gone on too long and was showing no sign of ending soon. I had a headache, and I was tired. I'd danced enough. I wanted a quiet conversation with someone who knew what load-shedding was."
Author: Mohsin Hamid
37. "Going into a marriage,is like jumping into unknown river with a lot of fishes.

Author: Peter Irabor

Author: Rachel Held Evans
39. "These are the voices which we hear in solitude, but they grow faint and inaudible as we enter into the world. Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of everyone of its members. Society is a joint-stock company, in which the members agree, for the better securing of his bread to each shareholder, to surrender the liberty and culture of the eater. The virtue in most request is conformity. Self-reliance is its aversion. It loves not realities and creators, but names and customs."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Author: Raymond Sokolov
41. "So you can't live in Manhattan?' she asked.Amos's brow furrowed as he looked across at the Empire State Building. 'Manhattan has other problems. Other gods. It's best we stay separate."
Author: Rick Riordan
42. "Few boys have been as fortunate as I, raised into manhood with only the gentlest of words and blandishments in my ears and the kindest of caresses upon my person, by a mother who sheltered us from everything that is harsh and ugly in this world. I was spoiled, utterly unprepared for cruelty, and perhaps this sounds like I'm complaining, but I'm not! You mustn't think I blame you. I'm afraid I must sound like the most ungrateful son in the world, when in fact the opposite is true. I am more grateful now than ever for the way you raised us, teaching us the value of kindness, of education, of independent thinking and liberal ideals, in the face of the fascism that is sweeping our country. The cruelest punishments now fail to bring even a tear to my eye, but the thought of the hardship you've suffered on behalf of your ideals makes me weep like a baby."
Author: Ruth Ozeki

45. "I'm officially near-famous. If you've got four year old kids and you've got cable, then you've got no choice but to know who I am. But if you're one of my peers - a 26-year old guy who lives in Manhattan - you have no idea who I am. I'm only famous if you're four."
Author: Steve Burns
46. "All daring and courage, I said, All iron endurance of misfortune, make for a finer, nobler type of manhood."
Author: Tom Spanbauer
47. "I didn't know what exhausted me emotionally until that moment, and I realized that the experience of being a soldier, with unlimited license for excess, excessive violence, excessive sex, was a blueprint for self-destruction. Because then I began to wake up to the idea that manhood, as passed onto me by my father, my scoutmaster, my gym instructor, my army sergeant, that vision of manhood was a blueprint for self-destruction and a lie, and that was a burden that I was no longer able to carry. It was too difficult for me to be that hard. I said, "OK, Ammon, I will try that." He said, "You came into the world armed to the teeth. With an arsenal of weapons, weapons of privilege, economic privilege, sexual privilege, racial privilege. You want to be a pacifist, you're not just going to have to give up guns, knives, clubs, hard, angry words, you are going to have lay down the weapons of privilege and go into the world completely disarmed."
Author: Utah Phillips
48. "Embora de sua aliança só resultasse o mal, havia algo de contemplação na submissão de Mme Thénardier ao marido. Aquela montanha de ruídos e de carne movia-se a um sinal do dedo mindinho daquele frágil déspota. Era, vista por seu lado mesquinho e grotesco, essa grande realidade universal, a adoração do espírito pela matéria; porque certas monstruosidades têm sua razão de ser nas mesmas profundezas da beleza eterna. Havia incognitas em Thénardier; daí o império absoluto daquele homem sobre aquela mulher. Em certos momentos, ela o via como uma vela acesa; em outros, sentia-o como uma terrível garra."
Author: Victor Hugo
49. "Tú me echabas una mirada con un gris signo de interrogación en tus ojos. "Oh, no, no empecemos de nuevo" (incredulidad, exasperación). Pues nunca te dignabas a creer que yo pudiera sentir el deseo -sin intenciones específicas- de hundir mi cara en tu falda tableada, amor mío. La fragilidad de tus brazos desnudos... Cómo anhelaba envolver esos brazos, y tus cuatro miembros límpidos, encantadores -un potrillo acurrucado-, y tomar tu cabeza entre mis manos indignas y estirar hacia atrás la piel de tus sienes y besar tus ojos achinados y... "Por favor, déjame en paz, ¿quieres?", decías. "Dios mío, déjame tranquila". Y yo me levantaba del suelo, mientras tú me mirabas crispando el rostro en una imitación deliberada de mi tic nerveux. Pero no importa, no importa, soy un miserable, no importa, sigamos con mi desgraciada historia."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "God will raise me up a champion."~ Rebecca (Ivanhoe)"

Today's Quote

There's a gentle sigh which descends like billowing silk upon the soul that accepts its coming death. It's a gentle pocket of air in the turbulence of everyday life... the silk settles around you as if it has been drifting towards the earth forever and has finally found it's target. The flag of defeat has been mercifully dropped and, in this action, the loss is not so bad. Defeat itself is defeated by the embrace of defeat, and death is swallowed up in victory."
