You're not going out? I guess you're not going out — huh? You mean go out parking in the evenings? Are you going out to park? Mr. Tepper, he asked at one point, did you ever — if you were in the middle of an interesting story in the paper or perhaps an interesting conversation with somebody who dropped in to talk to you while you were parking — notice that the meter had run out and therefore go out and put more money in the meter?

September expected that destinies, which is how she thought of professions, simply landed upon one like a crown, and ever after no one questioned or fretted over it, being sure of one's own use in the world. It was only that somehow her crown had not yet appeared. She did hope it would hurry up."
Author: Catherynne M. Valente

"The world was in terrible shape, and I'm glad we stood up and said what we believed; but a lot of the time we'd say these beautiful things about justice and fairness and equality, but we weren't so nice to each other. We'd be jealous and we'd gossip, and we'd be moody and difficult and rude and inconsiderate. Why do I say 'we'? I mean I would be all that-- and if at the time I ever came near to knowing what I'd become, I'd dodge, I'd duck, I'd go on the offensive: the terrible Wall Street bankers. Lots of them were terrible-- and so were lots of us."
Author: Dorothy Day

13. "The 'medium' is unaware of its attractiveness, that's all. Everyone loves comics. I've proven this to my own satisfaction by handing them out to acountants, insurance brokers, hairdressers, mothers of children, black belts, pop stars, taxi drivers, painters, lesbians, doctors etc. etc. The X-Files, Buffy, the Matrix, X-Men - mainstream culture is not what it once was when science fiction and comics fans huddled in cellars like Gnostic Christians dodging the Romans. We should come up into the light soon before we suffocate."
Author: Grant Morrison

16. "Nije skrivala bilo kakve uznemirujuce tajne; što god se moglo ljudski ubiti, ona bi ubila. Mogla je tako beskrajno poživjeti, jednako kao i mjesec, kao bilo koja mrtva planeta koja zraci hipnotickim sjajem, diže plimu strasti, nagoni svijet u ludilo, svojim magnetskim, metalnim zracima oduzima boju svim zemaljskim stvarima. Sijuci vlastitu smrt, prenosi na svakoga paklensku groznicu. U odvratnoj mirnoci svog sna obnovila je vlastitu magnetsku smrt u dodiru s hladnom magmom pustih planetarnih svjetova."
Author: Henry Miller

18. "He talked about luck and fate and numbers coming up, yet he never ventured a nickel at the casinos because he knew the house had all the percentages. And beneath his pessimism, his bleak conviction that all the machinery was rigged against him, at the bottom of his soul was a faith that he was going to outwit it, that by carefully watching the signs he was going to know when to dodge and be spared. It was fatalism with a loophole, and all you had to do to make it work was never miss a sign. Survival by coordination, as it were. The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but to those who can see it coming and jump aside. Like a frog evading a shillelagh in a midnight marsh."
Author: Hunter S. Thompson

The Brooklyn Dodgers always win, and I have the best seat in the house, right behind the Dodger's dugout. That's the only advantage that I can see about being dead: You get the best seat in the house."
Author: Jennifer L. Holm
23. "This is stupid.""Look. You think how stupid people are most of the time. Old men drink. Women at a village fair. Boys throwing stones at birds. Life. The foolishness and the vanity, the selfishness and the waste. The pettiness, the silliness. You think in war it must be different. Must be better. With death around the corner, men united against hardship, the cunning of the enemy, people must think harder, faster, be...better. Be heroic.Only it's just the same. In fact do you know, because of all that pressure, and worry, and fear, it's worse. There aren't many men who think clearest when the stakes are highest. So people are even stupider in war than the rest of the time. Thinking about how they'll dodge the blame, or grab the glory, or save their skins, rather than about what will actually work. There's no job that forgives stupidity more than soldiering. No job that encourages it more."
Author: Joe Abercrombie

Author: John Sandford
26. "I sat on the porch floor, pulling Lend's head into my lap and hoping he wouldn't be bruised from that fall. "Reth!" I shouted. "Reth!" Where was that blasted faerie?After a few minutes Jack walked over, rubbing at his wrists with a sour look on his face as he casually dodged around the sentinel dragon. "I always forgot how little sense of humor police officers have. Shame, really, considering how much fun they could have with their jobs.""I'd kill for a siren and lights. Or, you know, a car and a license."Jack sat on the steps, leaning back on his elbows. "That was a little more excitement than I usually like at dawn."
Author: Kiersten White

29. "Me perdi en un mar de frio y despues al renacer me vi en un mundo calido. Recuerdo una cosa: sus ojos amarillos!"No podia tenerle pero le tendria...""Como debia vernos grace: fantasmas que vagaban magicos y silenciosos por el bosque. Los lobos normales no suponian una amenaza. Pero nosotros no eramos lobos normales""Porque no consigo que me quieran mas?""Una y otra vez aunque conozcamos los paisajes del amor su pequeño cementerio lleno de nombres tristes y el abismo terrorificamente silencioso en el que caen los otros... (Pag. 280)""La vida se mide en momentos como este""Caigo en el abismo tremuloTendiendo la mano hacia tiPerdiendome en una pena heladaEs este amor fragilUn modoDe decirAdios""El viento me golpeo de nuevo pero ya no tenia poder sobre mi. El frio me entumecia los dedos, pero no los transformaba en otra cosa"
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
30. "A story went the rounds about a San Franciscan white matron who refused to sit beside a Negro civilian on the streetcar, even after he made room for her on the seat. Her explanation was that she would not sit beside a draft dodger who was a Negro as well. She added that the least he could do was fight for his country the way her son was fighting on Iwo Jima. The story said that the man pulled his body away from the window to show an armless sleeve. He said quietly and with great dignity, "Then ask your son to look around for my arm, which I left over there."
Author: Maya Angelou
31. "The two dozen commonplace childhood photographs - snowsuit, pony, tennis racket, looming fender of a Dodge - were an inexhaustible source of wonder for him, at her having existed before he met her, and of sadness for his possessing nothing of the ten million minutes of that black-and-white scallop-edged existence save these few proofs."
Author: Michael Chabon

33. "I dodged him for a few months with excuses about not being able to, not having the time to, not being bothered to tape it. When I was out of sensible excuses, I played the race card and told Paul Fine straight: "Taping the album for you is selling out to the white man, letting him have our music. Nah, man. For us by us..." "But you're not black.""Fuck you, Fine. I'm politically black from an oppressed race. Don't speak to me about no race politics or I'll lynch you like you done to my people.""I'm Jewish...""Whatever man. I ain't got no tapes."

"Pogledaj taj svijet tamo vani,Bože,moj Bože,pogledaj ga tamo vani,izvan mene,vani onkraj moga lica!Jedini nacin da ga stvarno dodirneš jest da ga staviš ondje gdje ce on konacno postati ja,ondje u moj krvotok,odakle ce kolati tisucu,deset tisuca puta dnevno.Cvrsto cu ga šcepati da mi nikada ne utekne.Cvrsto cu šcepati svijet jednoga dana.Vec mi je jedan prst na njemu."
Author: Ray Bradbury
37. "Svatko mora ostaviti nešto iza sebe kad umre,rekao je moj djed.Dijete,knjigu,sliku,kucu,podignuti zid ili par napravljenih cipela.Ili zasaden vrt.Nešto što je tvoja ruka dodirnula na neki nacin tako da ti duša ima kamo otici kad umreš.Pa kad ljudi pogledaju to stablo ili taj cvijet koji si posadio,ti si u njemu.Nije važno što radiš,rekao je,bitno je da si nešto što si dodirnuo promijenio iz onog stanja u kojem je bilo prije no što si ga dotaknuo u nešto što, nakon što odmakneš ruke,nalikuje tebi."

They're beautiful."He dodged her touch. "They look stupid."She let out an aggravated breath. "They are sexy as all get-out. Trust me. Dimples like those will definitely get you laid."

44. "I gazed at Nina and Theodore standing now before the window about to say their vows, or as Nina had phrased it, whatever words their hearts gave them at the moment, and I thought it just as well Mother was not here. She would've expected Nina to be in ivory lace, perhaps blue linen, carrying roses or lilies, but Nina had dismissed all of that as unoriginal and embarked on a wedding designed to shock the masses. She was wearing a brown dress made from free-labor cotton with a broad white sash and white gloves, and she'd matched up Theodore in a brown coat, a white vest, and beige pantaloons. She clutched a handful of white rhododendrons cut fresh from the backyard, and I noticed she'd tucked a sprig in the button hole of Theodore's coat. Mother wouldn't have made it past the brown dress, much less the opening prayer, which had been delivered by a Negro minister."
Author: Sue Monk Kidd
45. "And it was the pretending that might explain how she could smile so brightly while her mind felt nothing - as if, at these times, there existed a disconnection between outer and inner, a shutting off, and the key to her happiness lay in warding off pain, or dodging it, or pushing it into the shape of something else - like shame or anger or even hope."
Author: Sue Saliba
46. "She's not here," I tell him. Buttercup hisses again. "She's not here. You can hiss all you like. You won't find Prim." At her name, he perks up. Raises his flattened ears. Begins to meow hopefully. "Get out!" He dodges the pillow I throw at him. "Go away! There's nothing left for you here!" I start to shake, furious with him. "She's not coming back! She's never ever coming back here again!" I grab another pillow and get to my feet to improve my aim. Out of nowhere, the tears begin to pour down my cheeks. "She's dead, you stupid cat. She's dead."
Author: Suzanne Collins
