252. "Now, years later, I can translate that lesson into: safe isn't always better than sorry. Sometimes you need sorry to appreciate the safe. And sometimes safe is just plain boring. Rayna's probably going through a combination of both right now. And who am I to say what's right and what's wrong?And what is the law to say how she should live?The law prohibits Half-Breeds. Am I really that bad? The law is like a one-size-fits-all T-shirt. And how often do those shirts really fit everyone?"
Author: Anna Banks

260. "The world deprived of clear-cut outlines, of the up and the down, of good and evil, succumbs to a peculiar nihilization, that is, it loses its colors, so that grayness covers not only things of this earth and of space, but also the very flow of time, its minutes, days and years. Abstract considerations will be of little help, even if they are intended to bring relief. Poetry is quite different. By its very nature it says: All those theories are untrue. Since poetry deals with the singular, not hte general, it can't - if it is good poetry - look at things of this earth other than as colorful, variegated, and exciting, and so, it cannot reduce life, with all its pain, horror, suffering, and ecstasy, to a unified tonality of boredom or complaint. By necessity poetry is therefore on the side of being and against nothingness."
Author: Czeslaw Milosz

In the case of gay Tories, there is one particularly silly variant of the category, which asserts that gayness is bred in public schools and thus fits with Conservatism like hand in glove."
Author: Evan Davis
263. "... Evren, eski küçük oyunlarin sahnelenemeyecegi kadar büyük. Sahnenin evrensel büyüklügüne olaylarin, islerin ve eylemlerin evrensel genisligi uymali. Yoksa yaniliyor muyum? Yildizlar çaginda da sevi olacak, kiskançlik, alçaklik ,büyüklük, cimrilik... Evet, akan bir suda her nokta kendine göre devinir. Kendi istegine göre gittigini sanir. Ama bütün noktalar ayni yere dogru akip giderler. Insanlar da böyle. Gündelik islere yapisip kalabilirler, ya da kendilerini tutkulara birakabilirler. Ama yine de bu, onlarin hep birlikte yildizlara gitmelerini önlemez. Sanat yildizlara dogru bu gidiste onlarin önünde olmalidir. Ama sonsuz göge meydan okuyan bir insan betimlemek ne zor! Yildizlara giden insanin iyiligini yigitligini, gücünü güçsüzlügünü hangi yontuda taslastiracagim? Bilginin sakin gücünü, coskunun atakligini ve duygusalligi, isikli melankolisini hep birden tasa nasil geçirmeli ? Sanat, sen bazen ne kadar güçsüzsün!Evrenin Türküsü - G. Altov - V. Juravleva sf. 137"

267. "Clinging to the rags I had left, I gazed out upon the full breadth of the Furnace and shook at what I saw.The world had been wiped clean of all trace of humanity. Sharp sandstone peaks protruded into the gray sky like a humped backbone, spilling into vast seas of sand on either side. Boulders and driftwood, the castaways of some bygone mountain, cast the only disruption upon the land. And I realized—no sun crossed the sky; there was only constant, lingering grayness."
Author: Heather Heffner

Author: Henning Mankell
269. "You have a better option?"He didn't. Neither did Sage. I borrowed Larry Steczynski's cell phone to call Rayna. Personally, I never answer the phone if I won't recognize the number. Rayna doesn't feel the same way; she sees an unknown caller as a doorway to a possible romance."Hello?" she answered seductively."Hey, it's me.""Clea! Are you okay? I've been phone-stalking you for days. What happened? Where have you been?""Sorry, I lost my cell. Everything's okay." Wow-that was easily the biggest lie I'd ever told anyone in my life."How okay?" she asked playfully. "Did you meet someone amazing at Carnival and get swept off your feet?"I loved that those were the only two options for Rayna: Either something had gone horribly wrong, or I'd gotten wrapped up in a wild, whirlwind romance.I glanced at Sage. "I did meet someone…""I knew it! I want to know everything.""It's kind of a long story.""I've got nothing but time. Details!"

Author: J.D. Salinger
273. "No, Mr Redmayne, not my tears. Although I've read that letter every day for the past eight months, those tears were not shed by me, but by the man who wrote them. He knew how much I loved him. We would have made a life together even if we could only spend one day a month with each other. I'd have been happy to wait twenty years, more, in the hope that I would eventually be allowed to spend the rest of my life with the only man I'll ever love. I adored Danny from the day I met him, and no one will ever take his place."
Author: Jeffrey Archer
274. "You know for years before the notion of sequels, actors were the franchise. John Wayne would rarely do sequels, but he kind of played the same guy with a different name in every movie. I have no problem with using actors as franchises. And that's what is fun to do."

"So this book is a sidewalk strewn with junk, trash which I throw over my shoulders as I travel in time back to November eleventh, nineteen hundred and twenty-two.I will come to a time in my backwards trip when November eleventh, accidentally my birthday, was a sacred day called Armistice Day. When I was a boy, and when Dwayne Hoover was a boy, all the people of all the nations which had fought in the First World War were silent during the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of Armistice Day, which was the eleventh day of the eleventh month.It was during that minute in nineteen hundred and eighteen, that millions uponmillions of human beings stopped butchering one another. I have talked to old men who were on battlefields during that minute. They have told me in one way or another that the sudden silence was the Voice of God. So we still have among us some men who can remember when God spoke clearly to mankind."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
286. "Raynor slapped her so hard her teeth rattled and eyes stung, but she refused to react except to say saucily,"You must have heard how I like foreplay.""I hope you like it a lot, because with your mouth, you'll be getting it nonstop.""Goody," she said dryly.

292. "Ilham Ilham sözcügü tehlikelidir.Ilk önce ilhamdir,sonra izleme,ardindan da taklit olur ve bir bakarsiniz bir kopya olmussunuz.Kimseden ilham almaya gerek yok.Gerekli olmasinin yani sira,ayrica tehlikelidir de.Her birey essizdir.Hiç kimse digerini takip edemez.Ilham bir lanete dönüsmektedir,bir lütfa degil.Her kaynaktan ögrenin,karsilastiginiz her essiz varliktan keyif alin ama kimseyi takip etmeyin ve asla baska birisi gibi olmayin.Sadece kendiniz olabilirsiniz.Milyonlarca insan için,ilham kaynagi olan kisilerin kendilerinin hiç kimseden ilham almamis olmasi çok garip bir olaydir.Ama kimse bunu fark etmez.Gautama Buda hiç kimseden etkilemedi ve bu da onu müthis bir ilham kaynagi haline getirdi.Sokrates kimseden etkilenmedi ki onu da böylesine essiz kilan buydu.Ilham kaynagi olarak düsündügünüz bütün bu insanlar baskalarindan etkilenmediler. Evet,ögrendiler ve birçok insani anlamaya çalistilar,farkli kisilikleri sevdiler ama kimseyi takip etmediler.Kendileri olmayi denediler."

294. "Hayatimizin, birtakim ehemmiyetsiz teferruatin oyuncagi oldugunu, çünkü asil hayatin teferruattan ibaret bulundugunu görüyordum. bizim mantigimizla hayatin mantigi asla birbirine uymuyordu. bir kadin, trenin penceresinden disari bakabilir, bu sirada gözüne bir kömür parçasi kaçar, o ehemmiyet vermeden bunu ovusturur ve bu minimini hadise dünyanin en güzel gözlerinden birini kör edebilirdi. Yahut bir kiremit, hafif bir rüzgarla yerinden oynayarak, devrin gipta ettigi bir kafayi parçalayabilirdi. göz mü mühim kömür parçasi mi, kiremit mi mühim kafa mi diye düsünmek nasil aklimiza gelmiyorsa ve bütün bunlari nasil hiç mütalaa yürütmeden kabule mecbursak, hayatin daha baska türlü birçok cilvelerine de ayni tevekkülle katlanmaya mecburduk."
Author: Sabahattin Ali
295. "Tabiattan hiçbir zaman bir tiyatro intibai almamisti. Anlatalim:Bir piyes seyrederken o piyesin içine giren, dekorla, yalanci rüzgârla, kimildayan mor isikla bizi korkutan rejisördür. Bir suni hava içinde muhayyilemiz binalarini kurar, gecelerini bina eder, korkusunu rüzgârla ve mor bir ay isigi ile getirir, içimize birakir.Fakat hiçbir zaman, disarida tabiatin içinde ayni rüzgâri, o tiyatrodaki suni rüzgâri, o koltukta duydugumuz korkuyu ve iç ezilmesini duymayiz. Belki ayni vakalar, ayni hadiseler disarida da geçer. Hatta basimizdan geçer. Fakat tiyatrodaki gibi kompoze bir halde degil."

300. "Küçük mucizeleri kabul ettigimiz zaman kendimizi büyük mucizeleri hayal edebilecek yeterlilikte hissederiz. bir istiridyenin içinden parlak, canli, lezzetli bir canlinin çikabilecegini kabul ettigimiz anda ayni kabuktan afrodit'in gelecegini de kbul etmisiz demektir. bununla da yetinmeyerek afrodit'in kabugundan büsbütün uzaklasacagini, kendine bir stüdyo daire edinecegini, tipki istiridye gibi onu istegi biçimde donatacagini da düsünebiliriz; ama hayal gücü, pek zengin degilse bu noktadan önce bir yerde durmaka zorundadir."
