Historians of Christianity, able to trace its gradual authorship and formation, nonetheless typically find themselves describing this development as an anonymous process, a spontaneous evolution accomplished by the nameless and faceless members of ancient communities of faith. ... But when it comes to the origin of the New Testament, we ought to do better, and we can."
Author: Jason D. BeDuhn
19. "My dear fellow,' Burlingame said, 'we sit here on a blind rock careening through space; we are all of us rushing headlong to the grave. Think you the worms will care, when anon they make a meal of you, whether you spent your moment sighing wigless in your chamber, or sacked the golden towns of Montezuma? Lookee, the day's nigh spent; 'tis gone careening into time forever. Not a tale's length past we lined our bowels with dinner, and already they growl for more. We are dying men, Ebenezer: i'faith, there's time for naught but bold resolves!"

Canon Campbell taught me to ask myself a question when the latter state settles upon me. Whom do I know who's alive whom I love? Good question-one that can bring you back to life. These days, I love Dan Needham and the Rev. Katherine Keeling; I know I love them because I worry about them-Dan should lose some weight, Katherine should gain some! What I feel for Hester isn't exactly love; I admire her-she's certainly been a more heroic survivor than I've been, and her kind of survival is admirable. And then there are those distant, family ties that pass for love-I'm talking about Noah and Simon, about Aunt Martha and Uncle Alfred. I look forward to seeing them every Christmas."
Author: John Irving
23. "Walang maitutugon ang wika sa tanong ng pag-ibig buhat sa isang sulyap na kumikislap o palihim. Sa halip, sumasagot ang ngiti, ang halik, o ang bugtonghininga."

27. "At the fruit of existence, there is a single concept of anonymity. This unknown concept is well known however. All one has to do is simply look behind the mirror for the answer. Yet, the answer won't come until the right question is asked. Because the illusions of reality are dressed in endless reflections, the blind will continue to be guided by the blind. The unknown concept is recognized to those who have tasted the fruit of existence, and as distant as the woman trying to grab Heaven from the reflection of an empty pond."
Author: Lionel Suggs

Eräs hänen työtoverinsa oli kerran sanonut, että jos toista katsoo silmiin pitempään kuin kuusi sekuntia muualle vilkuilematta tai silmiä räpäyttämättä, sekä seksin että murhan himo paljastuu. Hän oli suoralta kädeltä hylännyt ajatuksen, mutta se oli kiehtonut häntä sen verran että hän oli kokeillut sitä erinäisiin ystäviin ja tuntemattomiin. Hänen yllätyksekseen Johnia lukuun ottamatta toinen oli aina katsonut muualle ennen kuin kuusi sekuntia oli kulunut."

There's nothing to hide behind."
Author: Ozzy Osbourne

Author: Pamela Eglinski
33. "But: all journeys were return journeys. The farther one traveled, the nakeder one got, until, towards the end, ceasing to be animated by any scene, one was most oneself, a man in a bed surrounded by empty bottles. The man who says, "I've got a wife and kids" is far from home; at home he speaks of Japan. But he does not know - how could he? - that the scenes changing in the train window from Victoria Station to Tokyo Central are nothing compared to the change in himself; and travel writing, which cannot but be droll at the outset, moves from journalism to fiction, arriving promptly as the Kodama Echo at autobiography. From there any further travel makes a beeline to confession, the embarrassed monologue in a deserted bazaar. The anonymous hotel room in a strange city..."
Author: Paul Theroux
34. "Onko sitten mitään näkymää rakkauteen?Millaisen näkymän rakkauteen tahtoisit? Kissat asuvat laumanaA Laskoun tien varressaja illansuussa yksi makaa selällään ja toinen kissa poikittain sen päällänuolee voimakkain nuolaisuin sen poskia.Tahtoisitko siis rakkauden näkymän joka eivuorenvarmasti näyttäisi miltään muulta, nälältä,ruumiinlämmöltä, lihasten supistumiselta.Ei, sitä en tahdo. Vaan tahdon tuon suunnattoman,kuin vuoren jonka näen siksi että se peittää tähdet.En saa täsmälleen tietää mitä tarkoitan kun sanon: rakastan sinua.Sen sanoessani minun pitää haroa ympärilleni ja valojensyttyä tyhjässä mielessäni."
Author: Pauliina Haasjoki
35. "Strong Mercy:My desires are many and my cry is pitiful, but ever didst thou save me by hard refusals; and this strong mercy has been wrought into my life through and through. Day by day thou art making me worthy of the simple, great gifts that thou gavest to me unasked---this sky and the light, this body and the life and the mind---saving me from perils of overmuch desire. There are times when I languidly linger and times when I awaken and hurry in search of my goal; but cruelly thou hidest thyself from before me. Day by day thou art making me worthy of thy full acceptance by refusing me ever and anon, saving me from perils of weak, uncertain desire."
Author: Rabindranath Tagore
36. "Remember: Plot is no more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way to incredible destinations. Plot is observed after the fact rather than before. It cannot precede action. It is the chart that remains when an actionis through. That is all Plot ever should be. It is human desire letrun, running, and reaching a goal. It cannot be mechanical. It canonly be dynamic. So, stand aside, forget targets, let the characters, your fingers, body, blood, and heart do."
Author: Ray Bradbury

Author: Susane Colasanti
44. "Yes, my consuming desire is to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, barroom regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all this is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always supposedly in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yes, God, I want to talk to everybody as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night..."
Author: Sylvia Plath

Author: Sylvia Plath
46. "It is not too fantastic to say that he desired them with some of the absolute passion that characterised the exposed and flaming heart of Jesus which hung on Emilie's wall. Since this narrative has tried to avoid the canonisation of the Herr Direktor, the idea of the sensual Oskar as the desirer of souls has to be proved."
Author: Thomas Keneally
47. "The birds of anonymity fly high above in our shared sky. Witness their beauty."
Author: Truth Devour
48. "Here's a wagon that's going a piece of the way. It will take you that far; backrolling now behind her a long monotonous succession of peaceful and undeviating changes from day to dark and dark to day again, through which she advanced in identical and anonymous and deliberate wagons as though through a succession of creakwheeled and limpeared avatars, like something moving forever and without progress across an urn."
Author: William Faulkner
49. "Father Adam!"But the little man said nothing, did nothing. He stood still holding the letter, and there was not even a change of expression in his face; and this might be, thought Jocelin, because he has no face at all. He is the same all round like the top of a clothespeg. He spoke, laughing down at the baldness with its fringe of nondescript hair."I ask your pardon, Father Adam. One forgets you are there so easily!" And then, laughing aloud in joy and love— "I shall call you Father Anonymous!"
