1. "So we gave the afternoon some sanity after all and I wonder, Uncle Andrew, is life sane, as we tried to make it? Or is it insanity, as it was yesterday on the Gerard plantation?

4. "This dead man is bound up with my life, therefore I must do everything, promise everything in order to save myself; I swear blindly that I mean to live only for his sake and his family, with wet lips I try to placate him--and deep down in me lies the hope that I may buy myself off in this way and perhaps even get out of this; it is a little stratagem: if only I am allowed to escape, then I will see to it. So I open the book and read slowly:--Gerard Duval, compositor.With the dead man's pencil write the address on an envelope, then swiftly thrust everything back into his tunic.I have killed the printer, Gerard Duval. I must be a printer, I think confusedly, be a printer, printer..."

Author: Hank Edwards
7. "Is Oeroeg minder dan wij' stootte ik uit. 'Is hij anders?''Ben je belazerd,' zei Gerard kalm, zonder de pijp uit zijn mond te nemen. 'Wie zegt dat?' Ik bracht, niet zonder moeite, mijn gewaarwoordingen van die middag onder woorden.'Een panter is anders dan een aap,' zei Gerard, na een pauze, 'maar is een van de twee minder dan de ander? Dan vind je een idiote vraag, en je hebt gelijk. Blijf dat nou net zo idioot vinden, als het mensen betreft. Anders zijn - dat is gewoon. Iedereen is anders dan een ander. Ik ben ook anders dan jij. Maar minder of meer zijn door de kleur van je gezicht of door wat je vader is- dat is nonsens. Oeroeg is immers je vriend? Als hij zo is dat hij je vriend kan zijn- hoe kan hij dan ooit minder zijn dan jij, of een ander?"

8. "Andrea turned her back to Desandra and rolled her eyes. Raphael grimaced. They both looked scandalized. Dear God, what could she have said to scandalize a bouda..."No, really!" Desandra nodded. "Okay, so most guys don't have a nice ball sack, right? It looks all hairy and wrinkled like some small animal died between their legs, but Gerardo's is like two plums in a velvet bag..."Derek, who'd been lingering in the doorway, took a careful step to the left behind the wall and disappeared from my view.Kill me, somebody. I raised my hand. "Hold that thought. I need to borrow Andrea for a minute."I grabbed her arm and pulled her into the hallway. Behind us Raphael growled, "Don't leave me!"Andrea leaned towards me. "Plums.""Listen..."Andrea raised her hands, imitating holding plums the size of small coconuts, and moved them up and down."

9. "For the first four years of my life, while he lived, I was not Ti Jean Duluoz, I was Gerard, the world was his face, the flower of his face, the pale stooped disposition, the heartbreakingness and the holiness and his teachings of tenderness to me, and my mother constantly reminding me tonpay attention to his goodness and advice."
Author: Jack Kerouac
10. "A child's reaction to this type of calamity is twofold and extreme. Not knowing how deeply, powerfully, life drops anchor into its vast sources of recuperation, he is bound to envisage, at once, the very worst; yet at the same time, because of his inability to imagine death, the worst remains totally unreal to him. Gerard went on repeating: "Paul's dying; Paul's going to die"' but he did not believe it. Paul's death would be part of the dream, a dream of snow, of journeying forever."
Author: Jean Cocteau
11. "Gerard Butler is like a big kid; he's so nice."

13. "Gerard Manley Hopkins somewhere describes how he mesmerized a duck by drawing a line of chalk out in front of it. Think of me as the duck; the chalk, softly wearing itself away against the tiny pebbles embedded in the corporate concrete, is Joyce's forward-luring rough-smooth voice on the cassettes she gives me. Or, to substitute another image, since one is hardly sufficient in Joyce's case, when I let myself really enter her tape, when I let it surround me, it is as if I'm sunk into the pond of what she is saying, as if I'm some kind of patient, cruising amphibian, drifting in black water, entirely submerged except for my eyes, which blink every so often. Each word comes floating up to me like a thick, healthy lily pad and brushes past my head."
Author: Nicholson Baker
14. "Beowulf stands out as a poem which makes extensive use of this kind of figurative language. There are over one thousand compounds in the poem, totalling one-third of all the words in the text. Many of these compounds are kennings. The word 'to ken' is still used in many Scottish and Northern English dialects, meaning 'to know'. Such language is a way of knowing and of expressing meanings in striking and memorable ways; it has continuities with the kinds of poetic compounding found in nearly all later poetry but especially in the Modernist texts of Gerard Manley Hopkins and James Joyce."
Author: Ronald Carter
15. "Finally, you come to your senses.Gerard to Isabel - The Stranger I Married"
Author: Sylvia Day
16. "My current companion, Gerard de Battista, is the father of my two sons."
Author: Victoria Abril
