Favorite Aura Quotes

1. "His action of joining them, which would have been rude in a restaurant that was not moving at three hundred kilometers an hour, was perfectly acceptable on a train, which mimicked the entirely random joinings of life but revealed their true nature by making them last only hours or days, rather than years and decades. People on a train form an alliance, as if the world that surrounded the parallel rails were hostile and and they refugees from it. The dining car, humming and rocking gently in the night, annihilated past and future and made all associations outside of itself seem vaguely unreal. So they welcomed him at their table, for he was one of them, a traveler, not one of those wraiths through whose night-lit cities they passed."
Author: Alexander Jablokov
2. "[That was] the old Ellen Gulden, the girl who would walk over her mother in golf shoes, who scared students away from writing seminars, who started work on Monday after graduating from Harvard with honors on a Thursday, who loved the moments in the office when she would look out at the impenetrable black of the East River, starred with the reflected lights of Queens, with only the cleaning crew for company, and think of her various superiors out at dinner parties and restaurants and her various similars out at downtown clubs or cheap but authentic places in Chinatown and say to herself, 'I'm getting ahead.' That Ellen Gulden, the one her boss suspected of using the dying-mother ploy to get more money or a better job title, would have covered every inch of [this datebook] with the frantic scribble of unexamined ambition."
Author: Anna Quindlen
3. "Quelques fois je me disais qu'il passait peut-être toute une journée sans penser une seconde à moi. Je le voyais se lever, prendre son café, parler, rire, comme si je n'existais pas. Ce décalage avec ma propre obsession me remplissait d'étonnement. Comment était-ce possible. Mais lui-même aurait été stupéfait d'apprendre qu'il ne quittait pas ma tête du matin au soir. Il n'y avait pas de raison de trouver plus juste mon attitude ou la sienne. En un sens, j'avais plus de chance que lui."
Author: Annie Ernaux
4. "And in that dismal restaurant, surrounded by the simple government clerks who sat there repairing the wear and tear of their humble daily tasks, my broad-shouldered messmate seemed to me strangely noble; beneath his rough hide I could discern the angel who had vanquished the dragon."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

Author: Bill Bryson
6. "I love all the shoe shops in Covent Garden. Laura Lee Jewellery on Monmouth Street for delicate gold jewellery. Every time I get a part in an English movie, I buy myself a piece of jewellery from there."
Author: Caterina Murino
7. "North Korea is a famine state. In the fields, you can see people picking up loose grains of rice and kernels of corn, gleaning every scrap. They look pinched and exhausted. In the few, dingy restaurants in the city, and even in the few modern hotels, you can read the Pyongyang Times through the soup, or the tea, or the coffee. Morsels of inexplicable fat or gristle are served as 'duck.' One evening I gave in and tried a bowl of dog stew, which at least tasted hearty and spicy—they wouldn't tell me the breed—but then found my appetite crucially diminished by the realization that I hadn't seen a domestic animal, not even the merest cat, in the whole time I was there."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
8. "Before you let your doctor give you testosterone shots or pills, try to boost it naturally by dramatically decreasing or even eliminating sugar, wheat, and processed foods from your diet. A sugar burst has been found to lower testosterone levels by up to 25 percent. If you and your sweetheart share the cheesecake at the restaurant, no one is likely to get "dessert" when you get home! Another way to naturally boost your testosterone level is to start a weight-training program. Building muscle helps your body increase its testosterone levels. The supplements DHEA and zinc can also help. Zinc is necessary to maintain"
Author: Daniel G. Amen
9. "It's a tricky business, nurturing that aura of unapproachability."
Author: Dean Hale
10. "Elle aura donc menti jusqu'au bout! Où est-elle! Pas là... pas au ciel... pas anéantie...où? Oh! tu disais que tu n'avais pas souci de mes souffrances. Et moi, je fais une prière... je la répète jusqu'à ce que ma langue s'engourdisse : Catherine Earnshaw, puisses-tu ne pas trouver le repos tant que je vivrais! Tu dis que je t'ai tuée, hante-moi alors! Les victimes hantent leurs meurtrier, je crois. Je sais que des fantômes ont erré sur la terre. Sois toujours avec moi... prends n'importe quelle forme... rends-moi fou! mais ne me laisse pas dans cet abîme où je ne puis te trouver. Oh! Dieu! c'est indicible! je ne peux pas vivre sans ma vie! je ne peux pas vivre sans mon âme!"
Author: Emily Brontë
11. "La vie n'est ni un jeu ni un match, sinon il y aurait des gagnants."
Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt
12. "Ma è possibile che ogni volta che parlo di un sogno o di un'ambizione ci deve essere sempre qualcuno che ti guarda e sembra che dica: "diventa grande". E per gli altri diventare grandi vuol dire non credere più di essere una ballerina, un poeta, un musicista, un sognatore, un fiore. Non li sopporto.Una mattina sono uscito di casa, il cielo era azzurro e limpido, ho continuato a guardarlo mentre camminavo, stavo bene, respiravo a pieni polmoni, al terzo passo ho pestato una merda. Cosa devo fare? Rinunciare al cielo per paura delle merde? No, io no Porcaputtana!"
Author: Fabio Volo
13. "Il faut détruire l'idée de Dieu dans l'esprit de l'homme. Alors chacun saura qu'il est mortel, sans aucun espoir de résurrection, et chacun se résignera à la mort avec une fierté tranquille. L'homme s'abstiendra de murmurer contre la brièveté de la vie et il aimera ses frères d'une affection désintéressée. L'amour ne procurera que des jouissances brèves, mais la conscience même de cette brièveté en renforcera l'intensité autant que jadis elle se diluait dans les espérances d'un amour éternel."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
14. "If a rhinoceros were to enter this restaurant now, there is no denying he would have great power here. But I should be the first to rise and assure him that he had no authority whatever."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
15. "For a long time, she held a special place in my heart. I kept this special place just for her, like a "Reserved" sign on a quiet corner table in a restaurant. Despite the fact that I was sure I'd never see her again."
Author: Haruki Murakami
16. "Le persone che si lasciano incantare, che seguono in massa qualcuno che non produce niente, non capisce niente, ma parla bene in maniera persuasiva. A queste persone non passa neanche per l'anticamera del cervello che potrebbero sbagliarsi. Non riescono neanche a immaginare che possono ferire qualcuno irreparabilmente, senza motivo. Non si assumono la minima responsabilità degli effetti della loro condotta. Sono loro, quelli di cui ho paura. Sono loro quelli che vedo in sogno. Nel sogno tutto tace, e mi appaiono delle persone senza volto. Il silenzio si infiltra ovunque come acqua fredda, e in quel silenzio, tutto si scioglie."
Author: Haruki Murakami

Author: Janet Evanovich

Author: Jarod Kintz
21. "I'm conflicted. On one hand, I want to stay in and catch up on The Vampire Diaries, but there's this really awesome restaurant I've been wanting to try out."
Author: Jessica Sorensen
22. "I'm getting stale. I always do this time of year. I keep my nose to the grindestone and put in long hours and rustle up good meals and do all the chores and run errands and get along with people -- and have a fine time doing it and enjoy life. Then I realize, bang, that I'm tired and I don't want to wait on my family for a while and I wish I could go away somewhere and have people wait on me hand and foot, and dress up and go to restaurants and the theater and act like a woman of the world. I feel as if I'd been swallowed up whole by all these powerful DeVotos and I'd like to be me for a while with somebody who never heard the name."
Author: Joan Reardon
23. "I know for an absolute fact that if I ate a meal at one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants, I would be able to taste his anger."
Author: John Cheese
24. "Someone knocked me down; I pushed Brinker over a small slope; someone was trying to tackle me from behind. Everywhere there was the smell of vitality in clothes, the vital something in wool and flannel and corduroy which spring releases. I had forgotten that this existed, this smell which instead of the first robin, or the first bud or leaf, means to me that spring has come. I had always welcomed vitality and energy and warmth radiating from thick and sturdy winter clothes. It made me happy, but I kept wondering about next spring, about whether khaki, or suntans or whatever the uniform of the season was, had this aura of promise in it. I felt fairly sure it didn't."
Author: John Knowles

Author: Louis Tomlinson
31. "She began to fret about God's exact location. It was the Sunday-school teacher's fault: God is everywhere, she'd said, and Laura wanted to know: was God in the sun, was God in the moon, was God in the kitchen, the bathroom, was he under the bed?...Laura didn't want God popping our at her unexpectedly...Probably God was in the boom closet. It seemed the most likely place. He was lurking in there like some eccentric and possibly dangerous uncle, but she couldn't be certain whether he was there at any given moment because she was afraid to open the door. "god is in your heart", said the Sunday-school teacher, and that was even worse. If in the broom closet, something might have been possible, such as locking the door."
Author: Margaret Atwood

Author: Mario Batali
33. "Rome was mud and smoky skies; the rank smell of the Tiber and the exotically spiced cooking fires of a hundred different nationalities. Rome was white marble and gilding and heady perfumes; the blare of trumpets and the shrieking of market-women and the eternal, sub-aural hum of more people, speaking more languages than Gaius had ever imagined existed, crammed together on seven hills whose contours had long ago disappeared beneath this encrustation if humanity. Rome was the pulsing heart of the world."
Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
34. "Here's the thing, I've been cooking more and more and I'm pretty good; the problem is I can only go out to restaurants that cook better than I do, therefore, it's expensive."

Author: Nicholson Baker
38. "It wasn't always like this. There was a time when I imagined my life could happen in another way. It's true that early on I became used to the long hours I spent alone. I discovered that I did not need people as others did. After writing all day it took an effort to make conversation, like wading through cement, and often I simply chose not to make it, eating at a restaurant with a book or going for long walks alone instead, unwinding the solitude of the day through the city. But loneliness, true loneliness, is impossible to accustom oneself to, and while I was still young I thought of my situation as somehow temporary, and did not stop hoping and imagining that I would meet someone and fall in love... Yes, there was a time before I closed myself off to others."
Author: Nicole Krauss
39. "I'd remind you of that restaurant around the corner except..." His gaze flicked over the robe that dipped deep at her breasts and skimmed her thighs. "You'd have to get dressed."Shelby smiled, a slow invitation, but when he took a step toward her, she dunked bread into the batter. "Get a plate."He reached into the cupboard she indicated, then drew two plates out before he came to stand behind her. Leaning over, he brushed his lips below her ear, pleased with the quick tremor of response."The ones I burn," Shelby warned, "are all yours."
Author: Nora Roberts

Author: Shogo Oketani
45. "Man regis, atostogu metu žmogus tai ir turi daryti — neprisiminti, ka veike vakar vakare, nes jis paprastai ne velnio neveikia. Šlaistosi su fotoaparatu ir pleškina senienas, i kurias, grižes namo, tinges net pažiureti, nesiliaudamas eda visokius vietines „virtuves" delikatesus, o paskui vakare prisilaka kokios nors etnografines bjaurasties, vadinamos tonizuojanciu gerimu, ir iš ryto vemia šachmatu figuromis."
Author: Sigitas Parulskis
46. "Miss someone until they come back, or until you come back, until their absence in your life becomes something to be avoided at all costs. Miss them until you don't have to anymore, until you're reunited in your favorite booth in your favorite restaurant ordering your favorite meal, miss them until it feels like you never left. Or miss them until you can't anymore, until the things you miss are identified and cataloged as things and not a person, until you figure out that easy company and long talks and unblinking, all-knowing eye contact will find you again the way they found you the first time. Miss someone until you don't."
Author: Stephanie Georgopulus

In restaurants, he looked off into the middle distance while my hand would creep across the table to hold his. He would always let go first. I realize I can´t remember his last spontaneous gesture of affection."
Author: Suzanne Finnamore
49. "- T'as pas apporté des fleurs à Irina?-Offrir des fleurs aux femmes est une hérésie. Les fleurs sont des sexes obscènes, elles symbolisent l'éphémère et l'infidélité, elles s'écartèlent sur le bord des chemins, s'offrent à tous les vents, à la trompe des insectes, aux nuages de graines, aux dents des bêtes; on les foule, on les cueille, on y plonge le nez. A la femme qu'on aime il faudrait offrir des pierres, des fossiles, du gneiss, enfin une de ces choses qui durent éternellement et survivent à la flétrissure.C'est ce que j'aurai aimé répondre à Volodia mais mon russe est trop faible et je dis:-Si! mais elles ont fané en route. Le banya, Volodia, tu l'as préparé?"
Author: Sylvain Tesson
50. "We are all alike; we have no ties, we know nobody, we own nothing. When one of us dies, they scarcely know where to bury him. Our landlady and the delicatessen man are our mourners, and we leave nothing behind us but a frock-coat and a fiddle, or an easel, or a typewriter, or whatever took we got our living by. All we have ever managed to do is to pay our rent, that exorbitant rent that one has to pay for a few square feet of space near the heart of things. We have no house, no place, no people of our own. We live in the streets, in the parks, in the theaters. We sit in restaurants and concert halls and look about at the hundreds of our own kind and shudder."
Author: Willa Cather
