Anything, everything you need, I'll give you. Always. I promise. Just tell me one thing.""What?""That you want this, us." His voice dropped so low I could barely hear him. "That someday you'll love me."My hands began to tremble where they rested around his neck. "Ren, you know we're going to be together. We've both known that for a long time."He gave me a hard look. "That's not what I'm talking about.""Why are you asking me this?" I tried to pull back, but he held me against him.The glimmer of a smile appeared on his lips. "Why not?"My temper flared. "Are you trying to say that you love me?"I meant it as a challenge rather than a serious question, but his eyes seemed to catch fire."What do you think?" He touched his lips to mine, softly at first, gradually building pressure, parting them."

I've been asking myself for many a day. My brain is the same old brain. And what is puzzling me is why they want me now. Surely they don't want me for myself, for myself the same olf self they did not want. They must want me for something else, for something that is outside of me, for something that is not I. Shall I tell you what that something is? It is for the recognition I have recieved. That recognition is not I. Then again for the money I have earned and am earnin. But money is not I. And is it for the recognition and money, that you now want me?"
Author: Jack London
9. "The root of all desires is the one desire: to come home, to be at peace. There may be a moment in life when our compensatory activities, the accumulation of money, learning and objects, leaves us feeling deeply apathetic. This can motivate us towards the search for our real nature beyond appearances. We may find ourselves asking, 'Why am I here? What is life? Who am I?' Sooner or later any intelligent person asks these questions. What you are looking for is what you already are, not what you will become. What you already are is the answer and the source of the question. In this lies its power of transformation. It is a present actual fact. Looking to become something is completely conceptual, merely an idea. The seeker will discover that he is what he seeks and that what he seeks is the source of the inquiry."
Author: Jean Klein

"Any more than that and it could be a close call."Scarlet smirked. "You're not in danger of low self-esteem, at least.""What do you mean?""Nothing at all." She kicked a stone from their path. "How about you and … a lion?""A cat? Don't insult me."She laughed, the sound sharp and surprising. "How about a bear?""Why, do you see one out there?""Not yet, but I want to be prepared in case I have to rescue you."The smile she'd been waiting for warmed his face, a glint of white teeth flashing. "I'm not sure. I've never had to fight a bear before."

If Annabeth's mother was Athena, the goddess of wisdom, then why didn't Annabeth know better than to fall off a cliff? (I tried not to strangle Nico for asking that one.) Was Annabeth my girlfriend?
