Then one morning, exactly at sunrise, she suddenly showed herself."

And then you have but to hold up your hand to him and away you go together into dreamland"

Decadent texts often live in their descriptive excursions, in their evocation of dreams, mysterious places and states of mind, in their excess of words, not events. The surface of the texts, the sound of the words, point to themselves as manufactured, as illusion. The decadents attempted to create texts that announced themselves as artifice."
Author: Asti Hustvedt

But there is a new breed of the playboy and he is the man who remains single in attempts to make every woman feel as if he belongs to her, he remains a virgin in order to make every woman feel like she will be the first one, and in the end he may choose a very unattractive woman to adorn his side, so that in all circumstances, he will shine as the more beautiful one. This is the new breed of playboy. And it is a very evil one."
Author: C. JoyBell C.

The discipline of feet marching in unison was a display of power, and violence, and strength."
Author: C.S. Pacat

Author: E.M. Bounds

Geduld ist, den Dorn zu betrachten und die Rose zu sehen, die Nacht zu betrachten und das Morgengrauen zu sehen. Ungeduld ist die Kurzsichtigkeit, die verhindert, das Ergebnis zu sehen."
Author: Elif Shafak

'Are there any lemon cakes?"
Author: George R.R. Martin
21. "Non basta che le tue azioni, o meglio le tue intenzioni siano intrinsecamente buone; devi fare in modo che appaiano tali. S'è bello l'interno, devi provvedere a far bello anche l'esterno. Altrimenti la malignità e l'invidia offuscheranno le tue virtù in modo tale che neanche un uomo intelligente e buono [...] riuscirà a scorgerne l'interna bellezza. Sia questa, miei giovani lettori, la vostra massima costante: nessuno è mai tanto buono da poter trascurare le regole della prudenza; e la virtù stessa non può apparire bella quando non s'adorni esteriormente di correttezza e di decoro."
Author: Henry Fielding
22. "Now and then, an inch below the water's surface, the muscles of his stomach tightened involuntarily as he recalled another detail. A drop of water on her upper arm. Wet. An embroidered flower, a simple daisy, sewn between the cups of her bra. Her breasts wide apart and small. On her back, a mole half covered by a strap. When she climbed out of the pond a glimpse of the triangular darkness her knickers were supposed to conceal. Wet. He saw it, he made himself see it again. The way her pelvic bones stretched the material clear of the skin, the deep curve of her waist, her startling whiteness. When she reached for her skirt, a carelessly raised foot revealed a patch of soil on each pad of her sweetly diminished toes. Another mole the size of a farthing on her thigh and something purplish on her calf--a strawberry mark, a scar. Not blemishes. Adornments."
Author: Ian McEwan
23. "È uno speciale piacere che ti dà il libro appena pubblicato, non è solo un libro che porti con te ma la sua novità, che potrebbe essere anche solo quella dell'oggetto uscito ora dalla fabbrica, la bellezza dell'asino di cui anche i libri s'adornano, che dura finché la copertina non comincia a ingiallire, un velo di smog a depositarsi sul taglio, il dorso a sdrucirsi agli angoli, nel rapido autunno delle biblioteche. No, tu speri sempre d'imbatterti nella novità vera, che essendo stata novità una volta, continui a esserlo per sempre. Avendo letto il libro appena uscito, ti approprierai di questa novità dal primo istante, senza dover poi inseguirla, rincorrerla. Sarà questa la volta buona? Non si sa mai. Vediamo come comincia."
Author: Italo Calvino

Author: Iwan Goll
25. "Portanto - disse a Srta. Tilney -, a senhorita crê que os historiadores não são felizes ao deixar sua imaginação voar. Eles demonstram possuí-la, mas não conseguem despertar o interesse. Eu gosto de História, e não me importo de aceitar o que é falso junto com o que é verdadeiro. Para descrever os fatos principais, eles buscam informações em registros e em outros livros que são tão confiáveis, creio eu, quanto qualquer coisa que não se passe diante de nossos próprios olhos. E quanto aos pequenos adornos aos quais se refere, são apenas adornos, e gosto deles como tal. Se um discurso for bem escrito, eu o lerei com prazer, não importa quem seja o autor. E leio com mais prazer ainda se tiverem sido produzidos pelo Sr. Hume e pelo Sr. Robertson do que se fossem as palavras genuínas de Caractacus, Júlio Agrícola ou ALfredo, o Grande."
Author: Jane Austen

Author: Kahlil Gibran

Author: Leo Tolstoy
30. "He does not want a girl who trifles with Christianity. He wants a woman who is radically given to Christ. He does not want a girl who prays tepid, lukewarm prayers. He wants a woman who lives in defiance of the powers of Hell. He does not want a girl who is self-adorning with the latest fashions and trends. He wants a woman who is adorned with the inner jewelry of Christ-given holiness. He does not want a girl who dishonors and belittles her parents. He wants a woman who honors the authorities God has placed in her life and serves them with charity and gladness. He does not want a girl whose Bible is an accessory to her wardrobe. He wants a woman whose hunger and thirst is to know the Lord, and who diligently feasts upon His Word. He does not want a girl whose tongue is a deceptive weapon of selfishness. He wants a woman whose words drip with the honey of the name of Jesus."
Author: Leslie Ludy

Her alchemy is such that the person who knows how to treat her will turn her into purest gold of inestimable value...she should not be allowed in the company of scoundrels or the ignorant mob incapable of knowing or appreciating the treasures that lie within her."
Author: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

Author: Muriel Barbery

Author: Nicholas Sparks
36. "The tide of giggling young girls who had adorned those boys with crowns of wild flowers and sent them on their way with promises of letters and heroes' welcomes had receded and vanished. How fickle it all seemed to me now, the promise of glory and the lie of victory, the eager waves of thunderous applause. How paper-thin it all was. ~The Peacemakers (The Nemesis Engines)"
Author: Olivier A. Blanchard
37. "All he had loved, and moulded into thought,From shape, and hue, and odour, and sweet sound,Lamented Adonais. Morning soughtHer eastern watch-tower, and her hair unbound,Wet with the tears which should adorn the ground,Dimmed the aerial eyes that kindle day;Afar the melancholy thunder moaned,Pale Ocean in unquiet slumber lay,And the wild winds flew round, sobbing in their dismay."

Author: Rumi
42. "This is how people behave when their dailiness is destroyed, when for a few moments they see, plain and unadorned, one of the great shaping forces of life. Calamity fixes them with her mesmeric eye, and they begin to scoop and paw at the rubble of their days, trying to pluck the memory of the quotidian - a toy, a book, a garment, even a photograph - from the garbage heaps of the irretrievable, of their overwhelming loss."
Author: Salman Rushdie

Author: Sarah Hall
44. "I've remembered that most of life is about small, essential connections, so unobtrusive, so elastic, that you scarcely realize they're actually holding you together. The big ones-the great, grand emotional bonds-those are the ones that break, the ones that fail you, the ones that give way and send you careening toward the foot of the bleak and jagged canyon. It's the tough, gnarled, unadorned ties that really do bind, that never let you fall all the way down into darkness."
Author: Sharon Shinn

Author: Steven Wood Collins
46. "Our dress affects not only our thoughts and actions but also the thoughts and actions of others. Accordingly, Paul the Apostle counseled "women [to] adorn themselves in modest apparel" (1 Timothy 2:9).The dress of a woman has a powerful impact upon the minds and passions of men. If it is too low or too high or too tight, it may prompt improper thoughts, even in the mind of a young man who is striving to be pure.Men and women can look sharp and be fashionable, yet they can also be modest. Women particularly can dress modestly and in the process contribute to their own self-respect and to the moral purity of men. In the end, most women get the type of man they dress for.[Ensign, Mar. 2014, 47-48]"
Author: Tad R. Callister
47. "Un día la adornarán de piedras preciosas y se casará con un joven turco, al que sólo habrá visto de lejos, al través de una celosía, y con el que cruzará la palabra por vez primera en el momento de ser su esposa. La llevarán a una casa nueva, en la que vivirá como única señora si su marido no ama las costumbres antiguas, o en la que se confundirá con otras, iguales a ella en derechos, distintas a ella en alma, como si fuese de otro planeta. Su madre se extrañará de sus lágrimas y melancolías. Así vivió ella, así vivieron sus abuelas y todas las honradas damas temerosas de Dios. Pero la madre era feliz, abroquelada en su santa ignorancia: no la habían hecho morder el fruto embriagador de la cultura occidental... Y la infeliz reclusa de las tradiciones de su pueblo, asustada ante el porvenir, y mientras llega el momento del matrimonio, se consuela con la lectura, y devora las novelas francesas que llenan los escaparates de las librerías de la gran calle de Pera."
Author: Vicente Blasco Ibáñez
48. "A doll is among the most pressing needs as well as the most charming instincts of feminine childhood. To care for it, adorn it, dress and undress it, give it lessons, scold it a little, put it to bed and sing it to sleep, pretend that the object is a living person - all the future of the woman resides in this. Dreaming and murmuring, tending, cossetting, sewing small garments, the child grows into girlhood, from girlhood into womanhood, from womanhood into wifehood, and the first baby is the successor of the last doll. A little girl without a doll is nearly as deprived and quite as unnatural as a woman without a child."
Author: Victor Hugo
49. "This is what a woman is: unadorned, after children and work and age, and experience-these are the marks of living."
Author: Zadie Smith
50. "I realize the dust we return to is not the same dust from which we come. It is not that we come from ashes and nothingness and return to the same ashes and nothingness. The dust we return to has history. The ashes we become were touched, inscribed, detailed, adorned. They glowed."
