16. "Each pregnant Oak ten thousand acorns formsProfusely scatter'd by autumnal storms;Ten thousand seeds each pregnant poppy shedsProfusely scatter'd from its waving heads;The countless Aphides, prolific tribe,With greedy trunks the honey'd sap imbibe;Swarm on each leaf with eggs or embryons big,And pendent nations tenant every twig ...—All these, increasing by successive birth,Would each o'erpeople ocean, air, and earth.So human progenies, if unrestrain'd,By climate friended, and by food sustain'd,O'er seas and soils, prolific hordes! would spreadErelong, and deluge their terraqueous bed;But war, and pestilence, disease, and dearth,Sweep the superfluous myriads from the earth...The births and deaths contend with equal strife,And every pore of Nature teems with Life;Which buds or breathes from Indus to the Poles,And Earth's vast surface kindles, as it rolls!"
Author: Erasmus Darwin

23. "Es gehört mehr Genie dazu, ein mittelmäßiges Kunstwerk zu würdigen, als ein vortreffliches. Schönheit und Wahrheit leuchten der menschlichen Natur in der allerersten Instanz ein; und so wie die erhabensten Sätze am Leichtesten zu verstehen sind (nur das Minutiöse ist schwer zu begreifen): so gefällt das Schöne leicht; nur das Mangelhafte und Manierirte genießt sich mit Mühe. (…) Wer also Schiller und Göthe lobt, der giebt mir dadurch noch gar nicht, wie er glaubt, den Beweis eines vorzüglichen und außerordentlichen Schönheitssinnes; wer aber mit Gellert und Kronegck hie und da zufrieden ist, der läßt mich, wenn er nur sonst in einer Rede Recht hat, vermuthen, daß er Verstand und Empfindungen, und zwar beide in einem seltenen Grade besitzt."
Author: Heinrich Von Kleist

Britney Spears? I've got it! Preschooler who's misplaced her gum!"I regarded him balefully. "You're a morning person, aren't you?"You make that sound like a bad thing."Not if you stop talking."
Author: Jennifer Rardin

Author: John Barth

Author: Lauren Blakely
34. "-He leído muchos libros sobre gente con viviones, capacidades extra sensoriales o poderes desconocidos para el resto, y he sacado dos conclusiones.-¿Cuáles?-Una es que los hombres tenemos muchas capacidades pero les tenemos miedo.Preferimos ser todos iguales antes que poseer un poder que el resto no comprenda. Un talento no es algo peligroso. Por el contrario. Todos tenemos un don particular, único. Este mundo está hecho por la gente que no se conformó con lo establecido. Ingenieros, médicos, artistas, siempre aparece alguien que logra captar algo que para el resto es inaccesible..."
Author: Leo Batic

If the wrong reader comes across the words, they will remain just words. But for the right readers, your vision blooms off the page and is absorbed into their minds like smoke, where it will re-form, whole and alive, fully adapted to its new environment."
Author: Mary Gaitskill
38. "If it came to a magic genie, I would ask him for two extra wishes. One would be that no one would have to live with the muscular dystrophy disease or any disease. And the second one would be world peace, that we just stop fighting, talk about things, and we could live in harmony once again, like God intended us to do."
Author: Mattie Stepanek
39. "My kids download 10 games. They play them all for two minutes. They throw away the eight they don't like. Then they play those last two obsessively for a month. That's alien to those of us who buy a $60 game and play it for 40 or 50 hours. The discovery mechanism is completely social, and I don't think you get that genie back in the bottle."
Author: Mitch Lasky

43. "Eugenie, you're a woman without equal, and no matter how much you annoy the hell out of me and no matter how much I try to get you out of my head—and believe me, both occur regularly—I can't stay away from you. Even if you were barren, I'd take you as my consort in an instant and spend the rest of my life with you — childless, so long as it meant you'd be by my side. I would gladly bring you to my bed with no other thoughts than taking joy from your body. It would be enough."- Dorian"
Author: Richelle Mead

Kingdom after kingdom would fall to us..."
Author: Richelle Mead
45. "And you think that's it? All is forgiven and he'll just be cool with me having Storm King's grandchildren because we're all united in some super team? That's naive."Dorian's face suddenly hardened. "Equally naive is the thought that I would carelessly allow him to do anything to you or your children. How many times do I have to convince you of my protection? Do you really think that if he comes back here and attempts to harm one hair on your head, I'll allow it? Eugenie, if he so much as looks at you in a way I don't like, Rurik and his conspirators over there won't have a chance to act because I'll have long since run that bastard kitsune through myself." Dorian's tone astonishingly became light and easy again. "Now then. I wonder where we'll be making camp tonight."
Author: Richelle Mead
46. "Eugenie, my sweet, your outraged protests are adorable, but they only continue to slow us down. If you want me to help you, then let me. If you don't, then take me to one of those places where human women wear revealing clothing and quickly lose their virtue through alcohol."

48. "Matar slowly approached the coffee and picked it up carefully, like it might bite him. He  removed the lid and sniffed. "It's not poisoned," I said. "What are you? You conjure things from nowhere." "Perhaps I'm an afrit, a genie. Perhaps I'm an angel." Cox watched this exchange with interest. "Perhaps you are Shaitan," said Matar. I raised my eyebrows and Cox obligingly said, "Satan." I smiled a smile that didn't touch my eyes. The blood drained from Matar's face. "Perhaps," I  said. "Welcome to hell."
Author: Steven Gould
49. "He lived in two modes, the apparent and the veiled, and in two realms, the opera and the sewer, and he shuttled between them like a genie."
Author: Walter Kirn
50. "Man kann Lesen so gesundheitsschädlich verfallen wie jedem anderen Rauschmittel, besonders als Europäer, der ja durch lange erbliche Belastung im gleichen Prozentsatz alkohol- wie büchersüchtig ist. Man greift zum Buche wie zum Glas, um sich über die deprimierende Nüchternheit der Zeitungssensationen hinwegzutrinken, um den widerlichen Nachgeschmack der Medizinen, die man uns in den Spitälern der Zwangs-Heilversuche eingibt, herunter zu spülen. Und nichts hilft so wie ein süffiges Getränk, - wie Genuß von abgelagerten Pathos, vorzüglich in Versen konzentriert, um sich gleich edler und erhabener zu fühlen. Doch hält man sich nicht lange an die guten, erlesenen Jahrgänge. Und beim Lesen wie beim Trinken steigert man allzu rasch den Spiritusgehalt; man sucht nach Selbstbekräftigung und zugleich nach genereller Absolution. Abnorme Gelüste, wie einer krankhaften Veranlagung geschämt hatte, findet man bei erhabensten Genies im Schaffensrausche ausplaudert."
Author: Walter Mehring
