Author: Adam P. Knave
2. "Il y a des époques fatales où la prière, cet hymne naturel que Dieu a mis au fond du cœur de l'homme, devient suspecte aux yeux des hommes, car la prière est un acte d'espoir ou de reconnaissance."
Author: Alexandre Dumas

5. "Then all at once our personal and political quarrels were made very abruptly to converge. In the special edition of the London Review of Books published to mark the events of September 11, 2001, Edward painted a picture of an almost fascist America where Arab and Muslim citizens were being daily terrorized by pogroms, these being instigated by men like Paul Wolfowitz who had talked of 'ending' the regimes that sheltered Al Quaeda. Again, I could hardly credit that these sentences were being produced by a cultured person, let alone printed by a civilized publication."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
6. "I am not even an atheist so much as an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful. Reviewing the false claims of religion I do not wish, as some sentimental materialists affect to wish, that they were true. I do not envy believers their faith. I am relieved to think that the whole story is a sinister fairy tale; life would be miserable if what the faithful affirmed was actually true.... There may be people who wish to live their lives under cradle-to-grave divine supervision, a permanent surveillance and monitoring. But I cannot imagine anything more horrible or grotesque."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
7. "Wikipedia took the idea of peer review and applied it to volunteers on a global scale, becoming the most important English reference work in less than 10 years. Yet the cumulative time devoted to creating Wikipedia, something like 100 million hours of human thought, is expended by Americans every weekend, just watching ads."
Author: Clay Shirky
8. "And why does England thus persecute the votaries of her science? Why does she depress them to the level of her hewers of wood and her drawers of water? Is it because science flatters no courtier, mingles in no political strife? ... Can we behold unmoved the science of England, the vital principle of her arts, struggling for existence, the meek and unarmed victim of political strife?[Reviewing Charles Babbage's Book, Reflections on the Decline of Science in England (1830)]"
Author: David Brewster
9. "Dove smiled in satisfaction. "Something I picked up in the south of France. It's the purest jasmine from Grasse, which makes it very special indeed." "Why?" Evie sniffed again. The scent was rich and sensual, curling against her like a cat and warming itself on her skin. "Child, jasmine is one of the most seductive scents imaginable, and the stuff from Grasse is the finest in the world. In the little village where I collected that, the farmers won't even let their nubile daughters walk through the fields when the flowers are ripe for fear they won't be able to control themselves." "I can see why," Evie murmured. The heavy fragrance was intoxicating, and she felt like someone entirely new."
Author: Deanna Raybourn
10. "All officers of the Intelligence Community, and especially its most senior officer, must conduct themselves in a manner that earns and retains the public trust.

That's when I realized anything can happen in this business."
Author: Eliza Coupe

Author: Emily Brontë

Author: Estelle Parsons

Author: Evan Goldberg
16. "You won't believe this. 99% of reviews on GoodBetterBestReads are written by less than one percent of the members.Did you hear that? 99%! Let's repeat it. 99%. Let's repeat it. 99%.Now, the thing is, we thought that by getting one percent to do all the writing, we could sell to the 100%.We placed a lot of trust in the one percent. Can you see our dilemma?A lot of people's welfare depended on the one percent.What would happen to our cocktails and our cars and our condos, if the one percent staged a strike?"
Author: G.R. Reader
17. "No, I have never had a problem finding books to read. But I have had a problem finding people who understand what it's like to really LOVE reading. Maybe even need it. People who associate periods of their life with the kinds of things they were reading then, whether in school or in dusty old rooms of a house in Holland. The kind of people who take personal journeys into books and write responses that are part review, part stories in themselves. This is what Goodreads has always given me."
Author: G.R. Reader

"I think he was trying to warn you against unleashing your dreadful wrath on sweet, innocent me.""If the poor kid thinks you're sweet, I have to fear his home life."
Author: Gena Showalter

Author: Haruki Murakami
22. "The rout, that dreary review of fashionable fineries, that parade of well-dressed self-infatuations, is one of those English inventions currently mechanifying the other nations. England seems determined to see the entire world bored just as she is, and just as bored as she."

Author: Jim C. Hines

He buried his face in my hair, inhaling deeply. "There is nothing that can happen to you that we can't get past."
Author: Kresley Cole

Imagine - their little propellers all spinning as they fan you with palm fronds." "While they satisfy my every whim," added Cactus. Kizzy snorted. "Forget it. I don't lend out my boys."

Be it a short story, a novel, a novella, a chapter book, a poetry book, a chapbook, a manga or a graphic novel...it will seek reviews by itself. You need to do nothing with it. Do nothing but write. Give up review seeking and focus on writing, for that is what becomes you in the end."

Roger gone, Craig gone, Cesar gone, Stevie gone. And this feeling that I'm the last one left, in a world where only the ghosts still laugh. But at least they're the ghosts of full-grown men, proof that all of us got that far, free of the traps and the lies. And from that moment on the brink of summer's end, no one would ever tell me again that men like me couldn't love."
Author: Paul Monette

Author: Tan Le

A landscape architect, as well as a gardener. I've been a painter. A personal shopper. An accountant and a banker. I've been a beautician. Santa Claus. The Tooth Fairy. A movie reviewer. A nurse. A psychologist. A negotiator. An I have a Ph. D in How to Pretend Like You Don't Mind."

A Persian cat is all very well, I said; but a Persian cat is not enough. I must have a motor car. And it was thus that I became a novelist--for it is a very strange thing that people will give you a motor car if you will tell them a story. It is a still stranger thing that there is nothing so delightful in the world as telling stories. It is far pleasanter than writing reviews of famous novels."
Author: Virginia Woolf
