2. "The long procession from Jesus' healing of the blind to Franklin's bifocals took a substantial thinning of powers; time has not been so generous in delaying an attenuated aid to the heavy-lidded. Being past the time of miracles, even gadgets are now too external to modify our afflictions of vision; a drug is necessary to ease our senses into becoming receptive to grace. Truth no longer free to bypass the laws of physics or wait for us to tamper with them, it flashes itself before us in bursts brief enough for our attention spans to linger on its appearance. Not only the conversion of a nation to Belief, but its resilience in the face of decline, should make a simplification to miracles once again necessary."
Author: Bauvard

Night life comes out of a bottle and goes into a jar. If you think how much are the drinks it is not night life."
Author: Ernest Hemingway

11. "We often told ourselves off for wasting time in chairs, fully dressed, talking, when we could be doing the same, lying down in bed, face to face and naked. That precious time before love-making is ill-served by the pseudo-clinical term, ‘foreplay'. The world would narrow and deepen, our voices would sink into the warmth of our bodies, the conversation became associative and unpredictable. Everything was touch and breath. Certain simple phrases came to me which I didn't say out loud because they sounded so banal - Here we are, or, This again or Yes, this. Like a moment in a recurring dream, these spacious, innocent minutes were forgotten until we were back inside them. When we were, our lives returned to the essentials and began again. When we fell silent, we would lie so close we were mouth to mouth, delaying the union which bound us all the more because of this prelude."
Author: Ian McEwan
12. "Don't rush in order to have things done early. Be prepared before you set off. That's the rule. However, this does not mean that you keep delaying the time for beginning. You must begin by all means! Go, get prepared!"
Author: Israelmore Ayivor
13. "The earth will always be the same - only cities and history will change, even nations will change, governments and governors will go, the things made by men's hands will go, buildings will always crumble - only the earth will remain the same, there will always be men on the earth in the morning, there will always be the things made by God's hands - and all this history of cities and congress now will go, all modern history is only a littering Babylon smoking under the sun, delaying the day when men again will have to return to earth, to the earth of life and God -"
Author: Jack Kerouac
14. "...a choice had to be made when your husband said something unkind. Specifically: be cruel, be strong, or sulk. 'Be cruel' by saying an unkind thing back. 'Be strong' by choosing not to mind. But to do this, you have to use up a piece of your love. You have to shave off enough of the love to forgive. After a while, the piece might grow back, but sometimes not. And if you shave off all the soft curves, you'll be left with a sharp-edged love. 'Sulk' by sulking. Sulking is simply delaying the choice to be cruel or strong."
Author: Jaclyn Moriarty
15. "Delaying a meal brings about symptoms most people call "hunger." These symptoms include abdominal cramping, weakness, and feeling ill-the same as during drug withdrawal. This is not hunger. Our dietary habits, especially eating animal-protein-rich foods three times a day, are so stressful to the detoxification system in our liver and kidneys that we start to get withdrawal, or detoxification, symptoms the minute we aren't busy processing such food. Real hunger is not that uncomfortable."
Author: Joel Fuhrman
