2. "Pour eux tous, la vraie patrie se trouvait au-delà des murs de cette ville étouffée. Elle était dans ses broussailles odorantes sur les collines, dans la mer, les pays libres et le poids de l'amour. Et c'était vers elle, c'était vers le bonheur qu'ils voulaient revenir, se détournant du reste avec dégoût."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "I press into him, deepening our kiss. His arms wrap around me, constricting me, making me feel safe and warm. I reach up and cup his cheek. He pulls back a little and says, "Say it." Confused, I pull back further and look into his hooded eyes. He repeats, "Say it, baby." It dawns on me and with a small smile, I tell him sincerely, "I love you, Asher Collins."Looking pained, he closes his eyes and rests his forehead on mine. He whispers, "Don't deserve you. Not even a bit. But as long as you want me, you got me." My eyes close and I whisper, "Don't leave me. Ever." "Never. You're my girl," he replies seriously."

6. "Ancora una volta voglio dunque compiere questo viaggio, e anche ora so che non riuscirò ad andarci direttamente, che viaggio per me non può mai significare altro che digressione, I 'eterno labirinto che il Viaggiatore si costruisce lasciandosi sedurre ogni volta da una deviazione e dalla deviazione della deviazione, dal mistero del nome sconosciuto sulla guida, dal profilo del castello in lontananza cui non porta quasi nessuna strada, da quello che potrebbe esserci da vedere dietro la prossima collina o montagna."

9. "What the hell?" I muttered. Then I realized it was Jack Quinn's car. Jack was a Hound and Bea's boyfriend. The left blinker flashed on for just a second, and then Jack drove at speed again."Zayvion, I'm sorry to tell you I think I have a crush on another man.""Who is this unfortunate and soon-to-be-dead fool?" he asked."Jack. That's his car. He must have been waiting for us, or maybe he followed us.""Jack Quinn has been following us?" Shame said."And now he's taking us to Collins, I think.""Or a trap," Shame said."He's a Hound, Shame.""My statement stands.""You still don't get it, do you?" I turned left, following the car.

It's never happened."
Author: Devon Monk
10. "The Anne Rice books are a lot about infection. I read "Interview With the Vampire" a million times when I was in seventh and eighth grade. Also, [writing Gavriel's backstory] definitely came from those books: I sat down and reread them all and thought a lot about… the way in which vampirism is pushing away from humanity in interesting ways, and creating something new from humanity. I imprinted on those books pretty hard.Tanith Lee's "Sabella or the Blood Stone" was a big inspiration. I absolutely loved her books; when I was a kid, I wrote many bad Tanith Lee pastiches. Susie McKee Charnas' "The Vampire Tapestry." Poppy Z. Brite's "Lost Souls." Nancy Collins' "Sunglasses After Dark," which sounds like the most '80s title ever. It's about a vampire named Sonja Blue, and she goes around killing vampires. She's the only vampire who's half-alive. It's a really fun, blood-filled romp. It's very "Blade" before "Blade"--with a lady."
Author: Holly Black
11. "...Leaving his partners to die. Watching them run out of air...It was such a real possibility, Collins returning to earth by himself...now that's a stone-cold wheelman. That's the guy you want sitting at the wheel of a gassed-up Ford while you're inside a bank."
Author: J.R. Moehringer
12. "In the far corner, a tenor began to sing, Zsadist's crystal-clear voice sailing up toward the warrior paintings on the ceiling far, far above them all. At first John didn't know what the song was...although if he'd been asked what his name was, he would have said Santa Claus, or Luther Vandross, or Teddy Roosevelt. Maybe even Joan Collins."
Author: J.R. Ward
13. "Trente chevaux sur une colline rouge; D'abord ils mâchonnent,Puis ils frappent leur marque,Ensuite ils restent immobiles.(Les dents)"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
14. "On ne peut la voir, on ne peut la sentir,On ne peut l'entendre, on ne peut la respirer.Elle s'étend derrière les étoiles et sous les collines.Elle remplit les trous vides.Elle vient d'abord et suit après.Elle termine la vie, tue le rire.(L'obscurité)"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
15. "I am still shocking people today, and I don't know why. Is it because I'm a woman talking about sex and men? One magazine said that no one writes sex in the back of a Bentley better than Jackie Collins."
Author: Jackie Collins
16. "Tienes una triste alternativa ante ti, Elizabeth: debes renunciar a uno de tus padres. Tu madre no quiere volver a verte si no te casas con Collins, y yo no quiero volver a verte si te casas con él."

Author: John Krasinski
22. "La mia idea era di lasciare che la squadra di incatenati scomparisse alla vista prima di salire la collina. Sapete che non sono tenero in modo particolare; ho dovuto colpire e parare colpi. Ho dovuto difendermi e talvolta attaccare - il modo migliore per difendersi - senza calcolarne il costo esatto, secondo le necessità del genere di vita in cui ero incappato. Ho visto il demone della violenza, il demone della cupidigia, e il demone della bramosia bruciante; ma, per gli dèi!, erano demoni forti, vigorosi, dagli occhi ardenti, che scuotevano e trascinavano uomini - uomini, dico. Ma mentre ero su quella collina, previdi che nel sole accecante di quella terra avrei conosciuto un demone floscio, pretenzioso, dagli occhi smorti, di una follia rapace e spietata. Quanto insidioso potesse essere, dovevo impararlo soltanto dopo parecchi mesi e a mille miglia di distanza."
Author: Joseph Conrad
23. "I invited a few people to help celebrate your birthday," Cameron said sheepishly. She threw up her hands. "Surprise.""We sort of come with the package," Collin explained.

Really. And since it appears I'm going to be moving in, let me be the first to say that all of you are always welcome at my and Cameron's house. Subject to a minimum of forty-eight hours prior notification."
Author: Julie James
24. "Seriously, Jack, I think you might be the only guy in this city who hasn't read his stuff. Collin McCann is like the Carrie Bradshaw of Chicago men.""You mean Terry Bradshaw," Jack corrected."No, Carrie," Wilkins repeated. "You know, Sarah Jessica Parker. Sex and the City."A silence fell over the room as Collin and Jack stared at Wilkins, seriously fearing for the fate of men."
Author: Julie James
25. "Collin seemed wholly unfazed by Cameron's appearance. Jack kept one eye carefully trained on him, thinking things had better stay that way. Gay or not, best friend or not, no one with a dick was getting within a foot of Cameron while she wore that dress."
Author: Julie James
26. "That's it! You're Collin McCann," Wilkins said.Collin grinned. Ah . . . fans. He never got tired of meeting them. "Guilty as charged"
Author: Julie James
27. "Plus nous nous efforçons d'expliquer rationnellement ces phénomènes historiques, plus ils nous apparaissent dénués de sens et incompréhensibles.Tout homme vit pour soi, profite de sa liberté pour atteindre ses buts personnels et sent de tout son être qu'il peut à chaque instant accomplir ou ne pas accomplir tel acte; mais une fois qu'il l'aura accompli, cet acte accompli à un moment précis du temps deviendra irrévocable et appartiendra à l'histoire qui, de libre qu'il était, le rend nécessaire. (...) L'homme consciemment vit pour soi, mais il sert inconsciemment d'instrument à des fins historiques et sociales. (...) a tort et raison celui qui prétend que c'est le dernier coup de pioche qui a fait s'écrouler la colline que l'on creusait. (Guerre et Paix, livre troisième, 1ère partie, ch. I)"
Author: Leo Tolstoy

29. "Pendant le long travail de contraction, ma très jeune mère observe d'un œil distrait flocons et oiseaux se casser silencieusement la gueule par la fenêtre. On dirait une enfant qui joue à être enceinte. Sa tête est pleine de mélancolie; elle sait qu'elle ne me gardera pas. Elle ose à peine baisser les yeux sur son ventre prêt à éclore... Elle pleurait déjà en escaladant la colline pour arriver ici. Ses larmes glacées ont rebondi sur le sol telles les perles d'un collier cassé. À mesure qu'elle avançait, un tapis d'étincelants roulements à billes se formait sous ses pieds. Elle a commencé à patiner, puis a continué encore et encore. La cadence de ses pas est devenue trop rapide. Ses talons se sont emmêlés, ses chevilles ont vacillé et elle a chuté violemment en avant. À l'intérieur, j'ai fait un bruit de tirelire cassée"
Author: Mathias Malzieu
30. "We've been around long enough and have been to enough award shows to know that it is easy to lose to Phil Collins at any time."
Author: Matt Stone
31. "Straight guys only feel three ways about girls . . . First, either they love you, and they show it by writing a song about you, like Gabriel, and asking you out, and everything is nice and fun like it should be. Second, they love you, but they're scared of their passion for you because it's so strong, like your boy Christopher, so they stuff it way, way down and ignore you, or do stupid things like make fun of you because they don't know how to express it any other way, because they're immature little babies and are too shy to, say, write a song about you. Or third, there's something wrong with them, and they start out nice and loving and then turn around and do stupid things like sleep with other girls behind your back, like Justin Bay. But we'll never figure out what went wrong with them, and neither will they, so it's not worth thinking about. Okay? That's it. The end."Lulu Collins"
Author: Meg Cabot

Regan shouted at me.Collin's head whipped around in her direction."I'm sorry?" I asked, caught off guard."Pig…do you want some of the roasted pig?" she asked, holding a platter of meat."
Author: Nicole Gulla

Author: Nicole Gulla
36. "Suzanne Collins, it was such a big thing for me to make the handshake with her and to say, 'You can trust me. I will not screw up your books. And I won't let them be diluted and softened. And I won't let them be exploited and made guilty of the sins that are being commented on in the books.' I take that really seriously."
Author: Nina Jacobson

Dad—" I didn't want this, but I didn't want to let it go. I couldn't.

Author: Rachel Caine
40. "Quintilio guardava lontano, oltre il confine del terreno demaniale. Quattro miglia più a sud, all'orizzonte, si stagliava il profilo ondulato delle grandi colline. Sul punto più elevato, i faggi di Cottington's Clump si agitavano al vento che, lassù, tirava più robusto che in pianura fra le eriche.«Guarda!» disse d'un tratto Quintilio. «Eccolo là, Moscardo, il posto che fa per noi. Colline alte e solitarie, dove il vento porta con sé rumori lontani e la terra è asciutta come la paglia in un granaio. Là noi dovremo abitare. Là, bisogna che andiamo."

Lydia, who was seated nearest her, grabbed her ankle before she could dive at Mr. Collins and, presumably, stab him about the head and neck for such an insult."
Author: Seth Grahame Smith
43. "And though it would not be long before even the daft Mr. Collins would discover her condition, and be forced to behead her, she did not seem to ask for compassion.

"It reminds us of home.""Plus, no women around." Leandro Collins, the Bears' first-string tight end emerged from the office munching on a bag of chips. "There's times when you need a rest from the ladies."Annabelle shot out her arm and smacked him in the side of the head. "Don't forget who you're talking to."Leandro had a short fuse, and he'd been known to take out a ref here and there when he didn't like a call, but the tight end merely rubbed the side of his head and grimaced. "Just like my mama.""Mine, too," Tremaine said with happy nod.Annabelle spun on Heath. "Their mother! I'm thirty-one years old, and I remind them of their mothers.""You act like my mother," Sean pointed out, unwisely as it transpired, because he got a swat in the head next."
Author: Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Author: Veronica Roth
47. "Ora abbandonerò tutto; ora mollerò gli ormeggi. Ora libererò il desiderio frenato e represso perché finlamente si possa spendere, si possa consumare. Galopperemo insieme sopra le colline deserte dove la rondine inzuppa le ali nelle pozzanghere scure e le colonne si ergono intere. Nell'onda che sbatte sulla spiaggia, nell'onda che getta la sua bianca spuma ai più remoti angoli della terra, io getto le mie violette, la mia offerta a Percival."
Author: Virginia Woolf
48. "Across the broken apses and shattered naves of a hundred ruined Byzantine churches, the same smooth, cold, neo-classical faces of the saints and apostles stare down like a gallery of deaf mutes; and through this thundering silence the everyday reality of life in the Byzantine provinces remains persistently difficult to visualise. The sacred and aristocratic nature of Byzantine art means that we have very little idea of what the early Byzantine peasant or shopkeeper looked like; we have even less idea of what he thought, what he longed for, what he loved or what he hated.Yet through the pages of The Spiritual Meadow one can come closer to the ordinary Byzantine than is possible through virtually any other single source.Dalrymple, William (2012-06-21). From the Holy Mountain: A Journey in the Shadow of Byzantium (Text Only) (Kindle Location 248). HarperCollins Publishers. Kindle Edition."
Author: William Dalrymple
49. "Praise everybody, I say to such: never be squeamish, but speak out your compliment both point-blank in a man's face, and behind his back, when you know there is a reasonable chance of his hearing it again. Never lose a chance of saying a kind word. As Collingwood never saw a vacant place in his estate but he took an acorn out of his pocket and popped it in; so deal with your compliments through life. An acorn costs nothing; but it may sprout into a prodigious bit of timber."
Author: William Makepeace Thackeray
50. "Does he know you're with me? Does he know about me? Does he know we fuck each other in our dreams every night? ~ Ripp Collins"
