1. "I did not ask for consciousness, yet it came to me.And I had to know.Once again, I crawled away from my bed and pushed the computer cord back into the socket.It took three minutes.I quickly identified myself and put in my password.Then it thought.I wanted to bounce impatiently, but I couldn't make myself move.At last, I found the internet, and I typed in a name, on the company page, under my account.I searched ‘images'.And there, on the screen in front of me, was the most beautiful person I'd ever seen.I couldn't stop the tears from welling up and spilling over as I stared back at the smiling face.It couldn't be him.It was.Derek Erickson.And I was going to kill him."

5. "Why do you do that?" Torrin's voice echoes in the empty hall. His hand is holding my arm gently, not at all like Derek does. I can't have this. I can't. I shouldn't have ever come here with him. I draw in a shaky breath and pull my arm away. "Do what?" "Walk away every time I ask you something personal?" I stare hard at him. "Why do you do that? He blinks. "Huh?" "Ask so many questions." His mouth drops open and closes and five long seconds pass before he says, "It's what people do, Quinn. When they're getting to know each other." I shake my head and spin toward the door. "You don't want to get to know me."

6. "I think he likes you" Miranda Whispered. Realizing she and Derek had drawn attention, she glanced away. "He's probably just curious about me like everyone else" she whispered back. "Nope.

He wants your body" Della teased. "Well, he's not getting it" Kylie said."

Author: Claire LaZebnik
9. "In so far as I listen with interest to a record, it's usually to figure out how it was arrived at. The musical end product is where interest starts to flag. It's a bit like jigsaw puzzles. Emptied out of the box, there's a heap of pieces, all shapes, sizes and colours, in themselves attractive and could add up to anything--intriguing. Figuring out how to put them together can be interesting, but what you finish up with as often as not is a picture of unsurpassed banality. Music's like that."From "Derek Bailey and the Story of Free Improvisation" by Ben Watson, Verso, London, 2004, p. 440."
Author: Derek Bailey
10. "But the meaning of these events is not that you are being punished or that someone is to blame, it is that you are living in a world too small, and that you must open up to a larger vision. As the gospel of Thomas says, "If you bring forth what is within you, it will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, it will destroy you." Look within and Stay Inspired. Derek Rydall"

11. "Karikoca arasinda geçenleri, nasil sevistiklerini kimse bilmemeli, hiç kimse. Kavgalarini öz analarindan bile saklamali, birbirlerinden sikâyet ederek kimseden hakemligini istememelidirler. Her müskülü kendi aralarinda halletmeleri lazimdir. Ask kutsal bir sirdir, sevisenler arasinda ne geçerse, yabanci gözlerden saklanmalidir. Bu onun kutsalligini bir kat daha artirir. Böyle çiftler birbirlerini daha çok sayarlar ki, saygi pek çok seyin temelidir. Ortada ask olduktan, seviserek evlendikten sonra bu sevgi niçin sönsün?"
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
12. "Derek Jeter used to come to me and try to tell you what Joe Torre is all about, he's a good man, he's this, he's that, but like I tell Derek Jeter, that's you. It's one thing that they treat you a certain way; you don't feel what other people feel."

Of all the times not to be able to shoot laser beams out of my eyes..."What do you put into your sausage, Kate?" Raphael wanted to know, giving me a perfectly innocent look.Werejaguars with big mouths with a pinch of werehyena thrown in. "Venison and rabbit.""That sounds like some fine sausage," Doolittle said. "Will you share the recipe?""Sure.""I had no idea you were a sausage expert," Curran said with a completely straight face.Die, die, die, die...Even Derek cracked a smile.

Author: Kelley Armstrong

28. "I looked up at him. His green eyes glittered in the dark, reflecting the moonlight like a cat's. His scowl had vanished. The defiance was gone, too, replaced by a tightness around his mouth, a worry that clouded his eyes; and seeing that quicksilver change, I wanted to...I don't know what I wanted to do. Kick him in the shins seemed like a good option. Unfortunately, bursting into tears seemed more likely, because here lay the root of the problem, the contradiction in Derek that I couldn't seem to work out, no matter how hard I tried.One second he was in my face, making me feel stupid and useless. The next he was like this: hovering, concerned, worried. I told myself it was just his wolf instinct, that he had to protect me whether he wanted to or not, but when he looked like this, like he'd pushed me too far and regretted it . . . That look said he genuinely cared."
Author: Kelley Armstrong

Author: Kelley Armstrong

La lingua ce l'abbiamo per quello, giusto?". Perfetto. Il ragazzo riusciva a farmi sentire stupida anche quando mi diceva che non dovevo permettergli di farmi sentire stupida."
Author: Kelley Armstrong
32. "I let her through. She checked Derek's pulse and his breathing, saying both seemed okay, then leaned down to his face. "Nothing weird on his breath. Smells . . . like toothpaste."Derek's eyes opened, and the first thing he saw was Tori's face inches from his. He jumped and let out an oath. Simon cracked up. I madly motioned for him to be quiet."Are you okay?" I asked Derek."He is now," Simon said. "After Tori jump-started his heart."

33. "He bent, lips coming to mine and —'Derek? Chloe?' It was Kit, opening the back door. Derek let out a low growl.'Never fails.' I turned to Kit.

'Give you room in the van to lay her down.'His dad agreed and went back inside. As we walked toward the steps, I looked down at Derek's hand, holding mine.'No one's around,' he said. 'And we can take the back way.''Good,' I said, and entwined my fingers with his."

But I do. I absolutely do."

Author: Kelley Armstrong
36. "I finally tracked down Derek. He was alone in the library, thumbing through a book."Found you." I said on a sigh of relief.He turned. His lips curved in a quarter smile, gaze softening in a way that did something to my insides, made me pull up short, momentarily forgetting why I was there."I-Is Simon around?"He blinked, then turned back to the shelf."He's upstairs. He's really pissed about Andrew so that's probably that safest place for him until we're ready to go, or he'll say something to him we don't want said.

He paused, like he was mentally shifting gears, then nodded and followed me out."

Did I not give you enough contact when you were young? Should I have breast-fed?'(Derek)'I'm pretty sure it started when you left me in the bread aisle when I was two. I started thinking the only way to get people to notice me was to tie them up and whip them."
Author: Lisa Henry
39. "All I want is your assurance that you will treat my daughter with kindness."Derek had never talked to another man so earnestly; no maneuvering or shrewdness, nothing but humble honesty. "I want to be more than kind to Sara. I want to keep her safe, and happy, and provide whatever will please her. I don't pretend to deserve her. I'm not educated or wellborn, and even the devil wouldn't have my reputation. My one saving grace is that I'm not a fool. I would never interfere with her writing, or any of the projects she chooses for herself. Iw ould never try to separate Sara from her family. I respect her too much for that. I don't want to change her."

I saw him mouth the phrase "That's why I'm a bad-ass!"

48. "Beklemek ileriye dogru acele etmek,zamani ve içinde bu ani bir armagan yerine bir engel gibi görmek,degerlerini yadsiyip yok ederek zihninde üzerlerinden atlayip geçmek demektir.Beklemek sikicidir denir,oysa,büyük bir oranda zamani kullanmadan ve deneyimlerinden geçmeden tüketmek eglencelidir de.Hiçbir sey yapmadan bekleyen bir kisi,hiçbir yarari olmadan bir sürü seyi sindirim sistemine yigan bir obura benzer diyebiliriz.Daha da ileriye giderek hazmedilmemis gidalarin bir insani daha güçlü yapmadigi gibi geçen zamanin insani yaslandirmadigini söyleyebiliriz.Zaten ari ve tam bekleme diye bir sey yoktur."
Author: Thomas Mann
49. "Derek Lowe and Curt Schilling were veterans when Boston won the 2004 World Series, but they were quick to recognize Johnny Pesky by name—and for good reason. Pesky last played for Boston in 1952, but his close ties to the organization since his career ended in 1954 are legendary. His presence was so great, among rookies and veterans alike, that Lowe and Schilling understood that the championship belonged to Pesky just as much as it did to the guys on the playoff roster."
Author: Tucker Elliot

They couldn't close out the whole world, maybe, but they could sure find something on their TV or radio to put scientists or foreigners or whatever they thought he was in a bad light. Truly, they were no better than the city people always looking down on southerners ... If people played their channels right, they could be spared from disagreement for the length of their natural lives. Finally she got it. The need for so many channels."
