Livia watched Blake's face in horror as he fell toward her, leaning for a moment like the Tower of Pisa. She staggered back, trying to hold him as they both collapsed to the forest floor.

10. "I missed her so much I wanted to die: a hard, physical longing, like a craving for air underwater. Lying awake, I tried to recall all my best memories of her—to freeze her in my mind so I wouldn't forget her—but instead of birthdays and happy times I kept remembering things like how a few days before she was killed she'd stopped me halfway out the door to pick a thread off my school jacket. For some reason, it was one of the clearest memories I had of her: her knitted eyebrows, the precise gesture of her reaching out to me, everything. Several times too—drifting uneasily between dreaming and sleep—I sat up suddenly in bed at the sound of her voice speaking clearly in my head, remarks she might conceivably have made at some point but that I didn't actually remember, things like Throw me an apple, would you? and I wonder if this buttons up the front or the back? and This sofa is in a terrible state of disreputableness."
Author: Donna Tartt

Especially if he's married. She felt dizzy with the effort of being so upfront"
Author: Eleanor Prescott
12. "And what about ageing? Do men force the fear of ageing upon us -- or are we ourselves terrified because we only know one kind of power -- the power of youthful beauty?Isn't it possible that if we became comfortable with other forms of female power, men might too? In her wonderful futurist novel, He, She, and It, Marge Piercy imagines a cyborg who is taught to love the bodies of older women. A delicious proposal -- because it tells that whatever we may imagine can come true. Women often hate their own bodies. Sometimes I think that the most important things about having at least one relationship with someone of your own gender -- especially if you are a woman -- is to confront the female self-hatred and turn it into self-love."
Author: Erica Jong
13. "Különös, hogy minden felbukkanó emléknek két tulajdonsága van. A legerosebb, hogy mindig csöndesek, és úgy hatnak még akkor is, ha a valóságban nem voltak annyira csöndesek. Hangtalan jelenések, amelyek pillantásokkal, mozdulatokkal, szótlanul, hallgatva beszélnek hozzám, és hallgatásuk az a megrázó valami, ami arra kényszerít, hogy megragadjam a kabátom ujját, a puskámat, nehogy belévesszek ebbe a felolvadásba, ebbe a meglazulásba, amelyben testem szeretne kiterjedni és szelíden szétfolyni, hogy eljusson a dolgok mögött rejlo hatalmasságokhoz. Azért oly csöndesek ezek az emlékek, mert éppen ez az, ami oly megfoghatatlan nekünk. A fronton nincs csönd. S a front varázsa oly messzire terjed, hogy sohasem kerülhetünk ki belole. Még hátul a depókban és a pihenoszállásokon is mindig fülünkben marad a tuz zümmögése és tompa dörömbölése. Sohasem vagyunk olyan messze, hogy ezt ne hallanók."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque

Author: Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

Demented Kitten."

Assault and battery, a question mark used like a club. My parents are old and fragile. I'd have to heartless to want to hurt them."

32. "Because—truth?—on the scale of significance, that stuff doesn't even register. What has me pushed past the boiling point...what has me really, really upset is learning the woman I thought was so incredibly strong I married her on the spot...is actually a quitter who runs from challenge, a coward too afraid to even try, a liar who makes promises she won't keep and a cynic too bitter to believe what's right in front of her face. Is that real enough for you?"

33. "Are you angry? Punch a pillow. Was it satisfying? Not hardly. These days people are too angry for punching. What you might try is stabbing. Take an old pillow and lay it on the front lawn. Stab it with a big pointy knife. Again and again and again. Stab hard enough for the point of the knife to go into the ground. Stab until the pillow is gone and you are just stabbing the earth again and again, as if you want to kill it for continuing to spin, as if you are getting revenge for having to live on this planet day after day, alone."

"Now and then the fantastic shadows of birds in flight flitted across the long tussore-silk curtains that were stretched in front of the huge window, producing a kind of momentary Japanese effect, and making him think of those pallid, jade-faced painters of Tokyo who, through the medium of an art that is necessarily immobile, seek to convey the sense of swiftness and motion."
Author: Oscar Wilde

The next stood in front of me holding onto my shirt and pulling me close to her as she ground into me seductively. The third danced slowly and seductively with the second girl, giving the girl-on-girl effect. I knew I was going to burst at any moment, so I had to close my eyes and take repeated deep breaths to calm down."What's the matter Aid-man, you feeling a little frustrated?" Dixon boasted from under his lap dancer."Shut up Dixon." Though I didn't really want him to shut up, his teasing was distracting me pretty well. "I'm going to kill you for this.""Oh no little man!" He laughed loudly. "Thank your future wife! That one is on her!" he howled."

Author: Taylor Stevens

She was there in the full vigour of her personality, battered, but not diminished..."
