6. "Meanwhile a certain amount of moaning and groaning was coming from upstairs. Sophie kept muttering to the dog and ignored it. A loud, hollow coughing followed, dying away into more moaning. Crashing sneezes followed the coughing, each one rattling the window and all the doors. Sophie found those harder to ignore, but she managed. Poot-pooooot! went a blown nose, like a bassoon in a tunnel. The coughing started again, mingled with moans. Sneezes mixed with the moans and the coughs, and the sounds rose to a crescendo in which Howl seemed to be managing to cough, groan, blow his nose, sneeze, and wail gently all at the same time. The doors rattled, the beams in the ceiling shook, and one of Calcifer's logs rolled off onto the hearth."All right, all right, I get the message!" Sophie said, dumping the log back into the grate. "It'll be green slime next"."
Author: Diana Wynne Jones

I, as an anarch, not uninterested but disinterested, can understand that. Freedom has a wide range and more facets than a diamond."

Raskolnikov's burning and fixed look seemed to grow more intense every moment, penetrating his soul, his consciousness. All at once Razumikhin gave a start. Something strange seemed to pass between them . . . as if the hint of some idea, something horrible, hideous, flitted by and was suddenly understood on both sides . . . Razumikhin turned pale as a corpse. "You understand now?"
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
10. "If you can try to nap where someone's sitting,Although there is another empty chair,Then rub against his ankle without quittingUntil he rises from your favorite lair;If you can whine and whimper by a portalUntil the bolted door is opened wide,Then howl as if you've got a wound that's mortalUntil he comes and lets you back inside;If you can give a guest a nasty spiking,But purr when you are petted by a thief;If you can find the food not to your likingBecause they put some cheese in with the beef;If you can leave no proffered hand unbitten,And pay no heed to any rule or ban,then all will say you are a Cat, my kitten.And -- which is more -- you'll make a fool of Man!"
Author: Henry N. Beard
11. "By degrees, however, he fashioned for himself out of this tendency a philosophy that was actually serviceable to life. He gained strength through familiarity with the thought that the emergency exit stood always open, and became curious, too, to taste his suffering to the dregs.

If the limit of what is bearable is reached, I have only to open the door to escape."
Author: Hermann Hesse

He won't leave the grounds and he promises to defend the inn with 'all the strength in his body.' I told him if he gets in trouble, he should try singing prettily so his woodland friends will come to the rescue. I don't think he got it."
Author: Ilona Andrews
15. "Although people call love a capricious and unaccountable emotion that arises like an illness, nonetheless it has its own laws and reasons, like everything else. If these laws have been little studied so far, that is because a person struck down by love is in no condition to observe with a scholar's eye as the impression steals into his soul and shackles his emotions like a dream, as first his eyes go blind, at which moment his pulse and then his heart begin beating harder, all of a sudden there arises as of yesterday an undying devotion, the desire to sacrifice oneself; one's I gradually vanishes and crosses over into him or her; the mind becomes wither unusually dull or unusually sharp; the will surrenders to the will of another; and the head bows, the knees shake and the tears and fever come."
Author: Ivan Goncharov
16. "This hobbit was a very well-to-do hobbit, and his name was Baggins. The Bagginses had lived in the neighbourhood of The Hill for time out of mind, and people considered them very respectable, not only because most of them were rich, but also because they never had any adventures or did anything unexpected: you could tell what a Baggins would say on any question without the bother of asking him. This is a story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected. He may have lost the neighbours' respect, but he gained—well, you will see whether he gained anything in the end."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Go on, and be brief and to the point!"
Author: Jaroslav Hašek
18. "This fish, slowly gasping his last, looked very edible."
Author: Michael Grant
19. "And now I'm back outside again sitting in the white plastic chair looking at the dew on the gas cap of my car. A fly wants to bit me on the ankle. The mosquitoes are all asleep. They're just not out at this hour. Only one biting fly. And a mourning dove, who blows through his thumbs to make that sound."
Author: Nicholson Baker
20. "Clever enough when it suits you, aren't you?""I have my moments. That cat's out," he continued as he took his own jacket from the hook. "Take no pity on him should he come scratching at the door. Bub knew what he was when he insisted on moving out here with me.""Did you remember to feed him?""I'm not a complete moron." Unoffended, he wrapped a scarf around his neck. "He has food enough, and if he didn't, he'd go begging at your kitchen door. He'd do that anyway, just to shame me."
Author: Nora Roberts

"Do not desire chiefly to be cherished and consoled by God; desire above all to love Him.Do not anxiously desire to have others find consolation in God, but rather help them to love God.Do not seek consolation in talking about God, but speak of Him in order that He may be glorified.If you truly love Him, nothing can console you but His glory. And if you seek His glory before everything else, then you will also be humble enough to receive consolation from His hand: accepting it chiefly because, in showing His mercy to us, He is glorified in our souls."
Author: Thomas Merton

Author: Toni Morrison
24. "On the late afternoon streets, everyone hurries along, going about their own business.Who is the person walking in front of you on the rain-drenched sidewalk?He is covered with an umbrella, and all you can see is a dark coat and the shoes striking the puddles.And yet this person is the hero of his own life story.He is the love of someone's life.And what he can do may change the world.Imagine being him for a moment.And then continue on your own way."
Author: Vera Nazarian

Today's Quote

Mai intai nu lasati pe nimeni sa va porunceasca si ce sa faceti si ce sa ganditi.Aveti mare grija mai ales ca gandurile sa va ramana neincatusate .Chiar si un om liber poate ,uneori,sa fie legat mai strans decat un sclav.Ascultati-i pe oameni,dar nu va deschideti inima.Aratati-le respect stapanitorilor,dar nu-i urmati orbeste!Ganditi logic si cu bun simt ,dar nu comentati!Nu considerati pe nimeni mai presus de voi , oricare le-ar fi rangul si pozitia.Purtati-va corect cu toti,daca nu, o sa caute sa se razbune pe voi.Ramaneti credinciosi lucrurilor in care credeti si-i ve-ti face astfel pe ceilalti sa va asculte"
