2. "That night my mother had what she considered a wonderful dream. She dreamed of the country of India, where she had never been. There were orange traffic cones and beautiful lapis lazuli insects with mandibles of gold. A young girl was being led through the streets. She was taken to a pyre where she was wound in a sheet and placed up on a platform built from sticks. The bright fire that consumed her brought my mother into that deep, light, dreamlike bliss. The girl was being burned alive, but, first, there had been her body, clean and whole."
Author: Alice Sebold
3. "Centurion! Would you like to be a cavalryman one last time? There are Venicones who escaped when your line was broken to be hunted down, and Tribune Licinius has ordered me to take the best men available in their pursuit. Leave this hairy gentleman to watch the fun, and join us in the hunt!"
Author: Anthony Riches
4. "If Abstract Expression reached for the sublime, Pop turned ordinary imagery into icons.

Author: Arne Glimcher
5. "Incluso ella comprendía que no bastaba con aquello, que cada minuto que Penélope y Julián pasaban juntos les unía más. Hace tiempo que el aya había aprendido a reconocer en sus miradas el desafío y la arrogancia del deseo: una voluntad ciega de ser descubiertos, de que su secreto fuera un escándalo a voces y ya no tuvieran que ocultarse en rincones y desvanes para amarse a tientas. A veces, cuando Jacinta acudía a arropar a Penélope, la muchacha se deshacía en lagrimas y le confesaba sus deseos de huir con Julián, de tomar el primer tren y escapar a donde nadie les conociese."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
6. "Sophie," he said, and when she gave him a stern look, he took a hasty swig of the posset. "Miss Collins. I have not yet had a chance to properly apologize to you, so let me take it now. Please forgive me for the trick I played on you with the scones. I did not mean to show you disrespect. I hope you do not imagine I think any less of you for your position in the household, for you are one of the finest and bravest ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing."
Author: Cassandra Clare
7. "For the next several minutes we forgot about scones and lollipops and SATs and politicians and the Secret Service and hovered in a blissful place, population of two—Max and me. When I was kissing Max, the rest of the world, and all my problems faded away."
Author: Cassidy Calloway
8. "Recite the Periodic Table of Teatime, in correct order, with Elemental Symbols, please.'A-Through-L sat back on his handsome black haunches, shut his eyes, and said: 'Hot Tea (H), Herbal Tea (He), Lingonberry Scones (Li), Berry Jam (Be), Butter (B), Cream (C), Napoleons (N), Orange Marmalade (O), Frosting (F), Nettle Tea (Ne)..."
Author: Catherynne M. Valente
9. "Fue la época más cálida y febril de un verano cálido y febril. Los excrementos de tres millones de londinenses apestaban en las alcantarillas abiertas, incluida la mayor de nuestras alcantarillas (a pesar de que aquel año los ingenieros habían intentado inaugurar un elaborado sistema de alcantarillas subterráneas): el Támesis. Decenas de miles de londinenses dormían en sus porches o balcones, esperando la lluvia. Pero cuando cayó la lluvia fue como una ducha caliente, que se limitó a añadir una capa de humedad al calor. Julio se abatía sobre Londres aquel verano como una manta pesada y húmeda."
Author: Dan Simmons
10. "Those dripping crumpets, I can see them now. Tiny crisp wedges of toast, and piping-hot, flaky scones. Sandwiches of unknown nature, mysteriously flavoured and quite delectable, and that very special gingerbread. Angel cake, that melted in the mouth, and his rather stodgier companion, bursting with peel and raisins. There was enough food there to keep a starving family for a week."
Author: Daphne Du Maurier
11. "My grandfather taught me generosity. He sold snow cones in Harlem. I went with him at 5 and he let me hand out the change and snow cones. I learned a lot in the couple of years that we did that."
Author: Erik Estrada
12. "Hay metáforas más reales que las personas que pasan por la calle. Hay imágenes en los rincones de los libros que viven más nítidamente que muchos hombres y mujeres. Hay frases literarias que tienen una personalidad absolutamente humana. Hay fragmentos de párrafos míos que me hielan de pavor, de tal modo los siento claramente como seres humanos, tan bien perfilados contra las paredes de mi cuarto, por la noche, en la sombra. He escrito frases cuyo sonido -es imposible ocultar su sonido-, es absolutamente el de una cosa que ganó exterioridad absoluta y alma por completo."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
13. "Nico's hair was combed straight up, stiff with mousse, the tips dyed the color of traffic cones."

Author: Gene Simmons
15. "The trees bathed their great heads in the waves of the morning, while their roots were planted deep in gloom; save where on the borders of the sunshine broke against their stems, or swept in long streams through their avenues, washing with brighter hue all the leaves over which it flowed; revealing the rich brown of the dacayed leaves and fallen pine-cones, and the delicate greens of the long grasses and tiny forests of moss that covered the channel over which it passed in the motionless rivers of light."
Author: George MacDonald
16. "Así como esta lluvia,me desbordo en palabraspara contarte todos mis quehaceres,para meterte en todos los rincones de mi día,en todos los aleros de mis horas"
Author: Gioconda Belli
17. "Giving the tortoise a little wave, I kind of felt stupid afterward for doing so. It just stuck its head back in its green and brown shell. "That's a very interesting pet.""And those are very interesting shorts." His gaze dropped. "What are they?" Leaning forward his eyes narrowed and I stiffened. "Pizza slices?"Heat swamped my cheeks. "They're ice cream cones.""Huh. I like them." Straightening, his gaze drifted up me slowly, leaving an unfamiliar wake of heat behind. "A lot."
Author: J. Lynn
18. "Déjame que investigue las últimas células de tu cuerpo, los últimos rincones de tu alma; déjame que vuele tus secretos, que aclare tus misterios, que realice tus milagros; consérvate, presérvate, angústiate; sufre el amor; espérame..."
Author: Jaime Sabines
19. "Then the sun broke above the crest of the hills and the entire countryside looked soaked in blood, the arroyos deep in shadow, the cones of dead volcanoes stark and biscuit-colored against the sky. I could smell pinion trees, wet sage, woodsmoke, cattle in the pastures, and creek water that had melted from snow. I could smell the way the country probably was when it was only a dream in the mind of God."
Author: James Lee Burke
20. "Dice un proverbio chino que el destino es como un temporal de vientos que, provenientes de todos los rincones, azotan nuestras vidas y nos empujan por las sendas del tiempo; quienes posean fuerza de voluntad, lucharán contra la tormenta y podrán escoger su propio camino, mientras que los débiles acabarán allá adonde los lleve la tempestad."
Author: Jean Kwok
21. "Em dezanove minutos podemos cortar a relva do jardim, pintar o cabelo, assistir a um terço de um jogo de hóquei. Em dezanove minutos podemos fazer scones ou arranjar um dente no dentista; podemos dobrar a roupa de uma família de cinco pessoas...Em dezanove minutos podemos parar o mundo, ou podemos simplesmente saltar para fora dele. Em dezanove minutos podemos vingar-nos."
Author: Jodi Picoult
22. "¿No ha observado usted que la profesión de déspota es más fácil que la de médico o la de abogado? Primer año: ciclo de promesas, sonrisas y cortesías para los electores; segundo año: liquidación de viejas amistades para evitar que con su presencia recuerden el pasado, y creación de un Supremo Consejo de Lambiscones; tercer año: curso completo de egolatría y megalomanía; cuarto y último año: preponderancia de la opinión personal y arbitrariedades a toda orquesta."
Author: José Rubén Romero
23. "Oh, claro, no me malinterpretes. Estoy a favor de andar a los cinco rincones de Nuncajamás siendo perseguido por enojadas Reinas de Verano, de entrar al sótano de un ogro, de luchar con arañas gigantes, de jugar a las escondidas con un irritable dragón, buenos tiempos. Pero este es como el sexto lugar a donde hemos ido a buscar a ese miserable gato, y si no está aquí estoy casi asustado de a dónde vamos a ir a continuación"
Author: Julie Kagawa
24. "Dougal eyed the breakfast repast. In addition to burnt toast, there was poorly trimmed ham, eggs that looked rubbery enough to bounce off the floor, pathetically dry scones, and small, smoking pieces of something he suspected had once been kippers. Sophia noted Dougal's disgusted expression, and her heart lifted.He looked amazingly handsome this morning, dressed in a pale blue riding coat and white shirt, his dark blond hair curling over his collar, his green eyes glinting as he began to fill his plate. Two scones, a scoop of eggs, and a large piece of blackened ham all went onto his plate.Sophia had eaten earlier in the kitchen with Mary, who had served warm muffins with cream and marmalade, some lovely bacon, and crusty toast, complemented by a pot of hot tea.Sophia hid a smile as Dougal attempted to cut his ham. Too tough for his blade, it tore into uneven pieces under his knife. He lifted a piece and regarded it on the tines of his fork."
Author: Karen Hawkins
25. "The child, screaming for refuge, senses how feeble a shelter the twig hut of grown-up awareness is. They claim strength, these parents, and complete sanctuary. The weeping earth itself knows how desperate is the child's need for exactly that sanctuary. How deep and sticky is the darkness of childhood, how rigid the blades of infant evil, which is unadulterated, unrestrained by the convenient cushions of age and its civilizing anesthesia. Grownups can deal with scraped knees, dropped ice-cream cones, and lost dollies, but if they suspected the real reasons we cry they would fling us out of their arms in horrified revulsion. Yet we are small and as terrified as we are terrifying in our ferocious appetites."
Author: Katherine Dunn

Author: Kim Harrison
28. "La raza, eso que tú llamas así, es solamente esa gran pandilla de gente mísera como yo, legañosos, pulgosos, ateridos, que han acabado aquí perseguidos por el hambre, la peste, los tumores y el frío, llegados tras ser vencidos de los demás rincones del mundo. No podían ir más lejos por el mar. Pues eso es nuestra nación y esos son nuestros compatriotas."
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
29. "As I crossed the street, my sister yelled out the window, "Do you want us to bring you a cone?" and I thought, You're so stupid, Roberta, cones melt."
Author: Mitch Albom
30. "Pienso que en la vida de cada uno de nosotros existe un libro similar, que de pequeños no nos limitamos simplemente a leer, sino que inspeccionamos y rebuscamos en cada uno de sus rincones como si de una habitación se tratara. Un libro así, rebuscado como una habitación, escrutado o interrogado como una cara en cada rasgo y arruga, nunca podremos juzgarlo como se juzga un libro, porque para nosotros ha abandonado la zona de los libros y ha pasado a vivir a la zona de la memoria y de los afectos."
Author: Natalia Ginzburg
31. "If he would just work with pure ideas like a proper mathematician he could go as fast as thought. As it happens, Alan has become fascinated by the incarnations of pure ideas in the physical world. The underlying math of the universe is like the light streaming in through the window. Alan is not satisfied with merely knowing that it streams in. He blows smoke into the air to make the light visible. He sits in meadows gazing at pine cones and flowers, tracing the mathematical patterns in their structure, and he dreams about electron winds blowing over the glowing filaments and screens of radio tubes, and, in their surges and eddies, capturing something of what is going on in his own brain. Turing is neither a mortal nor a god. He is Antaeus. That he bridges the mathematical and physical worlds is his strength and his weakness."
Author: Neal Stephenson
32. "Killers don't take their nieces to get ice-cream cones."
Author: Priscilla Glenn
33. "The odors of perfume were fanned out on the summer air by the whirling vents of the grottoes where the women hid like undersea creatures, under electric cones, their hair curled into wild whorls and peaks, their eyes shrewd and glassy, animal and sly, their mouths painted a neon red."
Author: Ray Bradbury
34. "He is all pine and I am apple orchard.My apple trees will never get acrossAnd eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.He only says, "Good fences makegood neighbors."
Author: Robert Frost
35. "Dentro del inmenso océano de la poesía distinguía varias corrientes: maricones, maricas, mariquitas, locas, bujarrones, mariposas, ninfos y filenos. Las dos corrientes mayores, sin embargo, eran la de los maricones y la de los maricas. Walt Whitman, por ejemplo, era un poeta maricón. Pablo Neruda, un poeta marica. William Blake era maricón, sin asomo de duda, y Octavio Paz marica. Borges era fileno, es decir de improviso podía ser maricón y de improviso simplemente asexual. Rubén Darío era una loca, de hecho la reina y el paradigma de las locas. —En nuestra lengua, claro está —aclaró—; en el mundo ancho y ajeno el paradigma sigue siendo Verlaine el Generoso. Una loca, según San Epifanio, estaba más cerca del manicomio florido y de las alucinaciones en carne viva mientras que los maricones y los maricas vagaban sincopadamente de la Ética a la Estética y viceversa."
Author: Roberto Bolaño
36. "No hago más que percibirle... sentirle... en todos los rincones."
Author: Stephen King

38. "No se enamore nunca de ninguna criatura salvaje, Mr. Bell- le aconsejó Holly-. Esa fue la equivocación de Doc. Siempre llevaba a su casa seres salvajes. Halcones con el ala rota. Otra vez trajo un lince rojo con una pata fracturada. Pero no hay que entregarles el corazón a los seres salvajes: cuanto más se lo entregas, más fuertes se hacen. Hasta que se siente lo suficientemente fuertes para huir al bosque. O subirse volando a un árbol. Y luego a otro árbol más alto. Y luego al cielo...-"
Author: Truman Capote
39. "Caen mis oídos en un lutode balcones oscuros de guitarras."
Author: Vicente Gerbasi
40. "Hey, princess of Popsicles! Queen of curlicue cones."
Author: Wendy Higgins
41. "I am a Hindu because of sculptured cones of red kumkum powder and baskets of yellow turmeric nuggets, because of garlands of flowers and pieces of broken coconut, because of the clanging of bells to announce one's arrival to God, because of the whine of the reedy nadaswaram and the beating of drums, because of the patter of bare feet against stone floors down dark corridors pierced by shafts of sunlight, because of the fragrance of incense, because of flames of arati lamps circling in the darkness, because of bhajans being sweetly sung, because of elephants standing around to bless, because of colourful murals telling colourful stories, because of foreheads carrying, variously signified, the same word - faith."
Author: Yann Martel
