1. "Gently, I caressed along the puckered, angry scar slanting in a long, jagged line across my lower abdomen to where it crossed the smooth, silvered scar running in a horizontal line just above my pelvis, wishing she could somehow find comfort in my touch. Chills shook my body as I ran my fingers over the still sensitive skin, and just like every night, the bitterness and anger I found myself feeling faded away into sadness as I lost myself in this tangible reminder of my child. I loved her, so much. Steam filled the room, and I eased myself into the water, allowing myself to drift back to Daniel. I missed him, almost more than I could bear. This was never supposed to have happened to us. We were supposed to make it…we should have made it."
Author: A.L. Jackson
2. "Normalization takes place not because there is Western-ideology that normalizes third-world texts in any special way (other than the usual play with exoticism) but because this academic seeks to domesticate everything, even Marx."

Author: Alessandra Neymar

Hard. A few drops of water glistened against his skin. Hear heart beat to the sound of passion again."
Author: C.C. Hunter

8. "Benedicto: May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you -- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls."
Author: Edward Abbey
9. "Some keep the Sabbath going to church, I keep it staying at home, with a bobolink for a chorister, and an orchard for a dome."
Author: Emily Dickinson
10. "Silly that a grocery should depress one—nothing in it but trifling domestic doings—women buying beans—riding children in those grocery go-carts—higgling about an eighth of a pound more or less of squash—what did they get out of it? Miss Willerton wondered. Where was there any chance for self-expression, for creation, for art? All around her it was the same—sidewalks full of people scurrying about with their hands full of little packages and their minds full of little packages—that woman there with the child on the leash, pulling him, jerking him, dragging him away from a window with a jack-o'-lantern in it; she would probably be pulling and jerking him the rest of her life. And there was another, dropping a shopping bag all over the street, and another wiping a child's nose, and up the street an old woman was coming with three grandchildren jumping all over her, and behind them was a couple walking too close for refinement."
Author: Flannery O'Connor
11. "A cretiniza înseamna a-i rapi fiin?ei umane tot absolutul la care poate spera. Birocra?ii Bisericii au ucis absolutul cerului prin ritual ?i dogma. Birocra?ii societa?ii noastre fals democratice ne-au infantilizat în fa?a Raului amputându-i omului solitudinea tragica, înecându-l într-o mul?ime de activita?i "societale". Chiar ?i arta, ultima sursa de absolut, este domesticita: arti?tii sunt ni?te aparatciki în solda Ministerului Culturii, pictura moderna nu mai este decât un produs de capitalizare propus de bancheri, sculptura de avangarda, mobilier pentru holurile marilor banci... Iar poe?ii blestema?i de azi cotizeaza pentru pensia suplimentara!"
Author: Gabriel Osmonde
12. "Much of the international unease with the Sochi Games has focused on the threat of terrorism, Putin's domestic repressiveness, and the Russian campaign of anti-gay propaganda."
Author: George Packer
13. "You tell me why the government needs this information on every Verizon customer but they don't need to know who's coming across our border? They don't need to know where the 15,000 foreign nationals are that skipped out on their visa, just didn't show up to school but they're here in the United States. You tell me why they need my grandmother's phone records but they don't need to know where the Saudi nationals are. Why they don't need — why they need to know who's calling who inside the United States of America. They need to know who's calling who, how long the phone conversations were lasting, the GPS locators for all of the cellphones, when those phones, when that phone call was made. Why do they need all of that for domestic terror but they can't seem to get it right with the Boston bombers? They don't know where that guy was. You tell me why they need all of this information. Why do you need to go for the AP? You don't need to go for the AP and target the reporters."
Author: Glenn Beck
14. "?'I love even to see the domestic animals reassert their native rights — any evidence that they have not wholly lost their original wild habits and vigor; as when my neighbor's cow breaks out of her pasture early in the Spring and boldly swims the river, a cold grey tide, twenty-five or thirty rods wide, swollen by the melted snow. It is the Buffalo crossing the Mississippi."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
15. "Tik žinau, kad moterys per kancias pasauliui atneša nauja žmogu. Atsakomybes, kad šis užaugtu, imasi taip pat jos. Manau, tik nedaugelis moteru gali susitaikyti, kai žusta gyvybe. Del jos moterys daug vargsta. Vyrai mažiau atsakingi, nebent ant ju užgriuna išbandymai ir atsakomybe. Jie viska nusiaubia, tarsi tai butu tik žaidimas. Mes, moterys, renkame lavonus, gimdome naujus kareivius ir kuriame naujus ryšius."
Author: Herbjørg Wassmo
16. "The stillness of the calm is awful. His voice begins to grow strange and portentous. He feels it in him like something swallowed too big for the esophagus. It keeps up a sort of involuntary interior humming in him, like a live beetle. His cranium is a dome full of reverberations. The hollows of his very bones are as whispering galleries. He is afraid to speak loud, lest he be stunned; like the man in the bass drum."
Author: Herman Melville
17. "A pesar de todo, era casi un placer sufrir estos tormentos. Llevaba yo tanto tiempo arrastrándome ciego e insensible por la vida, y mi corazón había callado ya tan largamente, empobreciéndose confinado en un ángulo oscuro, que hasta aquellos reproches y aquel horror que contraían mi alma eran los bienvenidos. Era, por fin, un sentimiento, un sentimiento que ardía en llamas y en el que latía un corazón. Desconcertado, sentía en medio de mi atroz miseria algo como una liberación y esa nueva primavera."
Author: Hermann Hesse
18. "Mis más trágicos recuerdos se levantaron en furioso oleaje. Creía que después de pasar por la experiencia de perderte ya nada podía afectarme demasiado, pero la mínima posibilidad de que algo semejante le ocurriera al hijo que me quedaba, me volteó. Tenía un peso en el pecho, como una roca aplastándome, que me cortaba la respiración. Me sentía vulnerable, en carne viva, a punto de llorar en cualquier instante. En la noche, cuando todos descansaban, oía un rumor entre las paredes, había quejidos atascados en los umbrales, suspiros en los cuartos desocupados. Era mi propio miedo, supongo. El dolor acumulado en ese largo año de tu agonía estaba agazapado en la casa."
Author: Isabel Allende
19. "—La gente creerá que somos pareja. —Tímidamente le dije.—Que lo piensen. Cómo nadie nos conoce, entonces no le rendiremos cuentas a nadie.—Algunas jóvenes no dejan de mirarte, no las desilusiones.—Igual, algunos caballeros no te quitan los ojos de encima. —Miraba a su alrededor un tanto serio —Bueno, también se habrán dado cuenta que no soy de aquí.—No, no solo es eso. Es que la belleza de una flor exótica, no puede pasar desapercibida en medio de un campo silvestre. —Murmuró mirándome fijamente a los ojos.Esa frase y su manera de decirlo, la suavidad y la sensualidad en sus palabras me habían idiotizado. Si Loui seguía por ese camino que se había trazado intentando seducirme, en cualquier momento más pronto que tarde lograría que sucumbiera a él. Mis barreras estaban cayendo a sus pies, al igual que mi voluntad y pronto, ante él no sólo desnudaría mi alma sino también mi cuerpo."
Author: Itxa Bustillo
20. "How the moon triumphs through the endless nights!How the stars throb and glitter as they wheelTheir thick processions of supernal lightsAround the blue vault obdurate as steel!And men regard with passionate awe and yearningThe mighty marching and the golden burning,And think the heavens respond to what they feel.Boats gliding like dark shadows of a dreamAre glorified from vision as they passThe quivering moonbridge on the deep black stream;Cold windows kindle their dead glooms of glassTo restless crystals; cornice dome and columnEmerge from chaos in the splendour solemn;Like faery lakes gleam lawns of dewy grass.With such a living light these dead eyes shine,These eyes of sightless heaven, that as we gazeWe read a pity, tremulous, divine,Or cold majestic scorn in their pure rays:Fond man! they are not haughty, are not tender;There is no heart or mind in all their splendour,They thread mere puppets all their marvellous maze."
Author: James Thomson
21. "Yo estaba allí, existiendo en la superficie del agua, no ahogándome, pero sin ser capaz de respirar."
Author: Jessica Sorensen
22. "With a strong domestic economy, low national unemployment at 5 percent, and increasing retail sales, the picture should look rosy. But one look at the trade deficit changes all of that."
Author: Jo Ann Emerson
23. "One other fact is significant: the domestic feasts and sacrifices of single families, which in David's time must still have been general, gradually declined and lost their importance as social circles widened and life became more public."
Author: Julius Wellhausen
24. "We have domesticated God's transcendence. We often learn about God at about the same time as we are learning about Santa Claus; but our ideas about Santa Claus change, mature and become more nuanced, whereas our ideas of God can remain at a rather infantile level."
Author: Karen Armstrong
25. "Demetrie came to wait on my grandmother in 1955 and stayed for 32 years. It was common, in Mississippi, to have a black domestic cleaning the kitchen, cooking the meals, looking after the white children."
Author: Kathryn Stockett
26. "Having a separate bathroom for the black domestic was just the way things were done. It had faded out in new homes by the time the '70s and '80s rolled up."
Author: Kathryn Stockett
27. "Trout did another thing which some people might have considered eccentric: he called mirrors leaks. It amused him to pretend that mirrors were holes between two universes.If he saw a child near a mirror, he might wag his finger at a child warningly, and say with great solemnity, "Don't get too near that leak. You wouldent want to wind up in the other universe, would you?"Sometimes somebody would say in his presence, "Excuse me, I have to take a leak." This was a way of saying that the speaker intended to drain liquid wastes from his body through a valve in his lower abdomen.And trout would reply waggishly, "where I come from, that means you're about to steal a mirror."And so on"
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
28. "Being a domestic man, John decidedly missed the wifely attentions he had been accustomed to receive, but as he adored his babies, he cheerfully relinquished his comfort for a time, supposing with masculine ignorance that peace would soon be restored."
Author: Louisa May Alcott
29. "Our Butkara ruins were a magical place to play hide-and-seek. Once some foreign archaeologists arrived to do some work there and told us that in times gone by it was a place of pilgrimage, full of beautiful temples domed with gold where Buddhist kings lay buried. My father wrote a poem, "The Relics of Butkara," which summed up perfectly how temple and mosque could exist side by side: "When the voice of truth rises from the minarets, / The Buddha smiles, / And the broken chain of history reconnects."
Author: Malala Yousafzai

Author: Mark Twain
32. "The craft passed directly below Scathach and she released her grip and dropped onto the top of the vimana alongside Joan with enough force to send the larger craft plunging down. The French immortal laughed. "So nice of you-""Don't you dare crack any dropping-in jokes," Scathach warned before her friend could finish.The vimana dipped and spun, but the two women had firm grips on the transparent dome and held on while the pilot tilted the craft,attempting to shake them off."So long as he doesn't get too close to the lava," Scatty said, "we should be okay."At that moment the vimana dropped straight down, zooming dangerously close to the lava's sluggish bubbling surface."I think he heard you," Joan said, coughing as the air became almost unbreathable."
Author: Michael Scott
33. "Hawke.""Shh … Lie back and think of England."Laughter reawakened inside of her, bubbling its way past the raw burn of emotion. "I'd rather think of you."She felt his smile against the curve of her abdomen, his jaw rough with stubble that made her shiver as he kissed his way oh-so-slowly down her body."
Author: Nalini Singh
34. "Once more I realized to what an extent earthly happiness is made to the measure of man. It is not a rare bird which we must pursue at one moment in heaven, at the next in our minds. Happiness is a domestic bird found in our own courtyards."
Author: Nikos Kazantzakis
35. "Había momentos, sin embargo, en que la fuerza de la naturaleza ahogaba en mí todos mis prejuicios; hubiera entregado de buena gana mi alma a la perdición, ¿qué digo?, mi cuerpo a las llamas eternas, por poder huir con él a cualquier parte, a los confines de la tierra, o a un isla desierta, donde desnudo como Adán, hubiera vivido durante años con él, en pecado mortal, saciándome con fascinante belleza."
Author: Oscar Wilde
36. "Cuántas veces, amor, te amé sin verte y tal vez sin recuerdo, sin reconocer tu mirada, sin mirarte, centaura, en regiones contrarias, en un mediodía quemante: eras sólo el aroma de los cereales que amo.Tal vez te vi, te supuse al pasar levantando una copa en Angol, a la luz de la luna de Junio, o eras tú la cintura de aquella guitarra que toqué en las tinieblas y sonó como el mar desmedido.Te amé sin que yo lo supiera, y busqué tu memoria. En las casas vacías entré con linterna a robar tu retrato. Pero yo ya sabía cómo era. De prontomientras ibas conmigo te toqué y se detuvo mi vida: frente a mis ojos estabas, reinándome, y reinas. Como hoguera en los bosques el fuego es tu reino."
Author: Pablo Neruda
37. "The fair Saxon man, with open front, and honest meaning, domestic, affectionate, is not the wood out of which cannibal, or inquisitor, or assassin is made. But he is moulded for law, lawful trade, civility, marriage, the nurture of children, for colleges, churches, charities, and colonies."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
38. "Zla czastka natury, wyzwolona obecnie i sprawujaca wladze byla cielesnie slabsza i gorzej rozwinieta niz dobra, która odtracilem. Zarazem jednak mniej utrudzila sie i wyczerpala, gdyz dotychczas dziewiec dziesiatych zycia poswiecalem przeciez pracy, cnocie i swiadomemu, poddanemu rygorom obowiazku dzialaniu. Dlatego wlasnie Edward Hyde byl znacznie nizszy, szczuplejszy i mlodszy niz Henryk Jekyll. Jedna twarz rozjasnial blask wewnetrznego swiatla, na drugiej mroki zla wyryly glebokie pietno. Ponadto zlo (mimo wszystko slabsze w czlowieku niz dobro) znieksztalcilo i jak gdyby okaleczylo cala postac swojego wcielenia."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Author: Ron Lewis
40. "The sound is gone. There's nothing left but the insomniac throbbing of crickets. Crickets in the garden, the courtyard, the back courtyard. Close, domestic, identifiable. And those out in the country. Between all of them they raise, little by little, a wall that will keep out the thing that lies waiting for the tiniest crack of silence to steal through. The thing that is feared by all those who are sleepless, those who walk through the night, those who are lonely, children. That thing. The voice of the dead."
Author: Rosario Castellanos
41. "I kind of remember when I was young, I used to hang out with my dad sometimes. And I can remember just following him in and out of these domestic situations. Going to the grocery store, we'd go pick up my other brother, or we'd go here, go there."
Author: Ryan Coogler
42. "There are four on whose pots the Holy One, blessed he, knocked, only to find them filled with piss, and these are they: Adam, Cain, the wicked Balaam, and Hezekiah."Again, an abrupt transposition from the divine to the domestic, from upper to lowly spheres, occurs in the midrash. The homely image of the Holy One knocking on pots apparently derives from the practice of tapping on a clay or earthen pot to hear its ring in order to decide if it is worthy of holding wine. In current Hebrew usage, the expression 'to assess or gauge someone's pot' still denotes taking in the measure of a person's character. From Adam's answer to God, we learn that he turned out to be a pisspot."
Author: Shuli Barzilai
43. "The confidence is really driven by the woman - whether she can have the confidence that there will be enough earning or income to finance all the domestic spending - but also by the middle-income class, which for many Asian countries has become the growth power for the economy."
Author: Sri Mulyani Indrawati
44. "Mother seemed happiest when making and tending home, the sewing machine whistling and the Mixmaster whirling. Her deepest impulse was to nurture, to simply dwell; it had nothing to do with ambition and achievement in the world...How had I come to believe that my world of questing and writing was more valuable than her dwelling and domestic artistry?...I wanted to go out and do things--write books, speak out. I've been driven by that. I don't know how to rest in myself very well, how to be content staying put. But Mother knows how to BE at home--and really, to be in herself. It's actually very beautiful what she does...I think part of me just longs for the way Mother experiences home."
Author: Sue Monk Kidd
45. "This last altercation has given Enobaria and Gloss time to reach the Cornucopia. Brutus is within shooting distance and somewhere, certainly, Cashmere is nearby, too. These four classic Careers will no doubt have a prior alliance. If I had only my own safety to consider, I might be willing to take them on with Finnick by my side. But it's Peeta I'm thinking about. I spot him now, still stranded on his metal plate. I take off and Finnick follows without question, as if knowing this will be my next move. When I'm as close as I can get, I start removing knives from my belt, preparing to swim out to reach him and somehow bring him in.Finnick drops a hand on my shoulder. "I'll get him."Suspicion flickers up inside me. Could this all just be a ruse? For Finnick to win my trust and then swim out and drown Peeta? "I can," I insist.But Finnick has dropped all his weapons to the ground. "Better not exert yourself. Not in your condition," he says, and reaches down and pats my abdomen."
Author: Suzanne Collins
46. "Aprile è il mese più crudele, generalillà da terra morta, confondendomemoria e desiderio, risvegliandole radici sopite con la pioggia della primavera."
Author: T.S. Eliot
47. "Existuje mnoho forem spirituality. Jednou z nich je spiritualita transcendence - tázání se po vznešených vizích, univerzálních morálních principech a osvobození od mnoha omezení lidského života. Ovšem i strom, zvíre, potok nebo lesní hájek, to vše muže být v ohnisku náboženské pozornosti. Spiritualita místa muže být vyznacena zdí, kresbou na zemi nebo hromadou kamenu. Když na starých bojištích umístujeme historické památníky nebo pametní desky na domech, kde se narodily naši predkové ci prespal George Washington, konáme ryzí spirituální akt. Uctíváme zvláštního ducha, který je spojen s tímto místem."
Author: Thomas Moore

Author: Wendy Higgins
49. "And there are my cats, engaged in a ritual that goes back thousands of years, tranquilly licking themselves after the meal. Practical animals, they prefer to have others provide the food ... some of them do. There must have been a split between the cats who accepted domestication and those who did not."
Author: William S. Burroughs
50. "I'm afraid the popularity of the domestic cat would drop very quickly if little kitty could roar its displeasure."
Author: Yann Martel
