And from the feel of things, Galen is flittering that cute little fin of his like crazy to get back to you. Rayna must be riding on his back.""You can tell what she's doing?""I can tell how fast she's moving. No one can swim as fast as Galen, Rayna included. He must be pretty impatient to see you.""Yeah. Impatient for me to change so he can have another royal subject to order around."Toraf's laughter startles me, not because it's loud, but because his mood seems to swing around on an axis. "Is that what you think?" he says."

19. "Today...major actors and actresses develop their own projects or, at the very least, cherry-pick their roles carefully to suit not only their tastes but also whatever image they have cultivated to present to their public. Most major stars have their own production companies through which such projects are developed and even financed. While the biggest male stars of that time did in fact have their own production companies--Jimmy Stewart, Kirk Douglas, John Wayne, and Burt Lancaster, to name a few--and thus exerted creative and financial control over their careers, that was not the case with female stars. But Marilyn Monroe was about to change that."

37. "Çok yanilmiyordu. Hedefine vasil olan hiçbir temayül yasamaz. Arzu ile gaye arasinda ümid verici bir mesafe olmadikça arzunun yasamasi imkansizdir.Ihtiraslar da böyledir. Ask da hedefinden az çok uzak bulunursa canlidir. Firari ve sayyal bir hedef karsisinda her ihtiras kudurur. Bunun için iki taraftan biri kaçar ve öteki tarafin ihtirasini tahrik eder. Ihtiras kovalayan tarafta vardir. Kaçan lakayttir. Bunun için sevismek yoktur. Iki insan, muhtelif anlarda, birbirlerini sevebilirler; fakat bu an birlesir ve iki taraf, birbirlerini ayni zaman içinde sever ve sevdiklerini hissederlerse, ikisinde de ihtiras derhal mahvolur ve ask hadisesi biter. Her sevdanin sonu böyledir. Garip netice: Sevismek askin ziddidir."

Author: Stan Rice
46. "…he wanted to sleep inside her lungs and breathe her blood and be smothered. He wanted her to be a virgin and not a virgin all at once. He wanted to know her. Intimate secrets: Why poetry? Why so sad? Why that grayness in her eyes? Why so alone? Not lonely, just alone - riding her bike across campus or sitting off by herself in the cafeteria - even dancing, she danced alone - and it was the aloneness that filled him with love. He remembered telling her that one evening. How she nodded and looked away. And how, later, when he kissed her, she received the kiss without returning it, her eyes wide open, not afraid, not a virgin's eyes, just flat and uninvolved."
Author: Tim O'Brien

Author: Wayne Coyne
50. "It is just dawn, daylight: that gray and lonely suspension filled with the peaceful and tentative waking of birds. The air, inbreathed, is like spring water. He breathes deep and slow, feeling with each breath himself diffuse in the natural grayness, becoming one with loneliness and quiet that has never known fury or despair. "That was all I wanted," he thinks, in a quiet and slow amazement. "That was all, for thirty years. That didn't seem to be a whole lot to ask in thirty years."
