Author: A. R D.D M.G.
2. "Amintirile din trecutul sau devenisera mult mai puternice acum. Se convinsese ca avea sa ?i-o scoata din minte ?i suflet. Capatase toata cruzimea pe care o dorise. Jurase sa o urasca atât de mult pe cât o iubise, sa o deteste pentru nefericirea pe care i-o oferise. Î?i promisese multe lucruri, dar nu reu?ise sa le îndeplineasca. Cu fiecare moment în care era vulnerabil cadea ?i mai mult, ceda durerii care-l mistuise din prima clipa în care o vazuse."

7. "Doris Wales was a woman with straw-blond hair whose body appeared to have been dipped in corn oil; then she must have put her dress on, wet. The dress grabbed at all her parts, and plunged and sagged over the gaps in her body; a lover's line of hickeys, or love bites – ‘love-sucks,' Franny called them – dotted Doris's chest and throat like a violent rash; the welts were like wounds from a whip. She wore plum-covered lipstick, some of which was on her teeth, and she said, to Sabrina Jones and me, ‘You want hot-dancin' music, or slow-neckin' music? Or both?'‘Both,' said Sabrina Jones, without missing a beat, but I felt certain that if the world would stop indulging wars and famines and other perils, it would still be possible for human beings to embarrass each other to death. Our self-destruction might take a little longer that way, but I believe it would be no less complete."
Author: John Irving
8. "O mais corrente neste mundo, nestes tempos em que às cegas vamos tropeçando, é esbarrarmos, ao virar a esquina mais próxima, com homens e mulheres na maturidade da existência e da prosperidade, que, tendo sido aos dezoito anos, não só as risonhas primaveras do estilo, mas também, e talvez sobretudo, briosos revolucionários decididos a arrasar o sistema dos pais e pôr no seu lugar o paraíso,enfim, da fraternidade, se encontram agora, com firmeza pelo menos igual,repoltreados em convicções e práticas que, depois de haverem passado, paraaquecer e flexibilizar os músculos, por qualquer das muitas versões do conservadorismo moderado, acabaram por desembocar no mais desbocado e reaccionário egoísmo."
Author: José Saramago

10. "Some actors wear their roles like clothing," he said. "No matter what part they're playing, you can always easily see who it is beneath the costume.""It's how drag queens do women, darling," volunteered the elegant Miss X.[...]"The really amazing actors strip themselves down to nothing-they make themselves a blank slate, and you can never guess what they're going to look like or act like in their next film because they completely transform themselves.""It's how transsexuals do women, darling," opined Doris Fish with an arched eyebrow in my direction."
Author: Kate Bornstein

"Cum sa în?eleg eu chiar imediat ca el, tatal meu, î?i lua în acea ora mâna de pe mine ?i ca ma trimitea în lume cu gândul nemarturisit ca îndarat n-aveam ce mai cauta?(...) ?i în niciun fel n-aveam sentimentul ca lucrul pe care-l dorisem atât de mult, adica ruperea de familie, se petrecea definitv chiar în acea ora ?i ca mul?i ani de-atunci încolo n-aveam sa-l mai vad pe tatal meu ?i nici stând cu el astfel în caru?a, sim?indu-ma adica tot mic, de?i nu eram, n-aveam sa mai stau."
Author: Marin Preda

Author: Marisa Silver
15. "When Doris had died so long ago, it was weeks before Mary could think clearly and remember what she was supposed to do the next minute and then the minute after that. Even though Doris had shown Mary how to get rid of the chiggers that burrowed under the skin or how to add potatoes to bread to make it heavy so it would fill a stomach faster, she had never explained how she had survived the death of a husband and the loss of a child. Parents never told their real secrets. They never let you know how they lived in the spaces between working and cooking and running after children and counting dollars."
Author: Marisa Silver

Also, nobody wears a tux this time of year unless they're going to a wedding. You look like an escapee from the set of Dracula Does Doris."
Author: MaryJanice Davidson
17. "Doris was getting No. 4 ready for a new guest. The floor did not trouble her much, but she spent quite a long time on the taps and the veneered top of the dressing-table. Dusting and polishing she liked—things that showed—but those bits of fluff and dried mud at the bottom of the wardrobe she just pushed back into a corner. There was no means of getting them out, anyway, with that ridge at the front. Furniture was always made as inconvenient as possible. Doris was used to that."
Author: Monica Dickens
18. "I can remember Doris Day before she was a virgin."
Author: Oscar Levant

(Lorenzo Asiente.) ¿No son libres de hacer lo que les venga en gana?LORENZO: Ellos creen que lo son, pero siempre hacen lo que está previsto."
