1. "Sevgili Güllük;Yastik kanepenin üzerine konur. Tekme atilarak düsürülür o. Pazar günleri kuru fasulye yenir. Karsilikli, alt alta, üst üste ve daha degisik sekillerde durulur. Islak vardir. Portakalin içi de disi gibi portakal rengidir. Köstebeklerin uçma kabiliyeti bulunmaz. Kamyonlar yük tasirlar. Kaza olur. Kaza yaparlar. Süleyman, Çetin, Atif, Kemal, Necdet gibi erkek isimleri; Zeynep, Burçak, Burçak ve Burçak gibi kiz isimleri vardir. Patates cinsleri vardir; kizartmalik ve haslamalik. Çesitli ebatlarda dügün pastalari olur. Muz olur."

2. "Ah laikse askimiz elbet biter bir kisbaharyaz günüGözlerin uçurumlar kaydeder avuçlarimaBir çinar gövdesini bir hamle daha yayarÜç içbükey komodin silah çeker vurulurSen gidersin denklem düser ben ask oldugumu aglarim…Modern bir aliskanliktir ölmek, seni dogasiya seviyorum.BEN SANA DÜZENLI OLARAK TELEFON EDIYORUM!Vincit omnia veritas!Belki inanmayacaksin ama ben bu siiri ellerimle yaziyorumsevgilimÇünkü benim gömdügüm kizlar ara sira bogulurVe laik ask çarpik toplumlastirir, dogurma ne olurSirk deseler tek hirkam var, çatismada biraktimSimdi gidip Beckett okuyacagim, beni de seyret TanrimÖfkemi devletle bir topraga gömüyorumAklimsa çamura saplandi saplanacakSems çeker çikarir kitabi havuzdan, kuruErtan, alsana su tüfegi duvardan benim ellerim islak."

3. "The challenge lies in knowing how to bring this sort of day to a close. His mind has been wound to a pitch of concentration by the interactions of the office. Now there are only silence and the flashing of the unset clock on the microwave. He feels as if he had been playing a computer game which remorselessly tested his reflexes, only to have its plug suddenly pulled from the wall. He is impatient and restless, but simultaneously exhausted and fragile. He is in no state to engage with anything significant. It is of course impossible to read, for a sincere book would demand not only time, but also a clear emotional lawn around the text in which associations and anxieties could emerge and be disentangled. He will perhaps only ever do one thing well in his life.For this particular combination of tiredness and nervous energy, the sole workable solution is wine. Office civilisation could not be feasible without the hard take-offs and landings effected by coffee and alcohol."
Author: Alain De Botton
4. "Deficits must be cut, yes, but the rush to austerity risks undermining the fragile global recovery."
Author: Alistair Darling
5. "Love is a fragile, corruptible thing. And yet I have seen it evince a curious strength. It is beyond any comprehension Love is a weakness that once in a great while triumphs over strength."
Author: Brent Weeks
6. "À une passanteLa rue assourdissante autour de moi hurlait.?Longue, mince, en grand deuil, douleur majestueuse,?Une femme passa, d'une main fastueuse?Soulevant, balançant le feston et l'ourlet;Agile et noble, avec sa jambe de statue.?Moi, je buvais, crispé comme un extravagant,?Dans son oeil, ciel livide où germe l'ouragan,?La douceur qui fascine et le plaisir qui tue.Un éclair . . . puis la nuit! — Fugitive beauté ?Dont le regard m'a fait soudainement renaître,?Ne te verrai-je plus que dans l'éternité?Ailleurs, bien loin d'ici! trop tard! jamais peut-être!?Car j'ignore où tu fuis, tu ne sais où je vais,?Ô toi que j'eusse aimée, ô toi qui le savais!"
Author: Charles Baudelaire
7. "It will rain all this night and we will sleep transfixed by the dark water as our blood runs through our fragile life."
Author: Charles Bukowski
8. "I must have wanton Poets, pleasant wits,Musitians, that with touching of a stringMay draw the pliant king which way I please:Musicke and poetrie is his delight,Therefore ile have Italian maskes by night,Sweete speeches, comedies, and pleasing showes,And in the day when he shall walke abroad,Like Sylvian Nimphes my pages shall be clad,My men like Satyres grazing on the lawnes,Shall with their Goate feete daunce an antick hay.Sometime a lovelie boye in Dians shape,With haire that gilds the water as it glides,Crownets of pearle about his naked armes,And in his sportfull hands an Olive tree,To hide those parts which men delight to see,Shall bathe him in a spring, and there hard by,One like Actaeon peeping through the grove,Shall by the angrie goddesse be transformde,And running in the likenes of an Hart,By yelping hounds puld downe, and seeme to die.Such things as these best please his majestie,My lord."
Author: Christopher Marlowe
9. "We're all Running People, as the Tarahumara have always known. But the American approach -- ugh. Rotten at its core. It was too artificial and grabby, Vigil believed, too much about getting stuff and getting it now: medals, Nike deals, a cute butt. It wasn't art; it was business, a hard-nosed quid pro quo. No wonder so many people hated running; if you thought it was only a means to an end--an investment in becoming faster, skinnier, richer--then why stick with it if you weren't getting enough quo for your quid?"
Author: Christopher McDougall
10. "Know a lot of people who hide out in fantasy because reality is too hard to cope with [...] Fantasy isn't about escape; it's a survival mechanism. It's a way to deal with things that are so much bigger than you are. So I think fantasy is special, something to be cherished and protected because it's a very fragile thing and without it, we're so defenseless, we're paralyzed"
Author: David Gerrold
11. "We are with you in this work. Workingmen must form a party of their own, take charge of the government, dispose gilded fraud, and put honest toil in power."
Author: Denis Kearney
12. "Life was fragile and love was, too. At any moment, even our happiest ones, our world could shatter and we wouldn't see it coming. There was only more loss ahead, showing its ugly face when we least expected it."
Author: Donna Freitas
13. "O que é sensível tem de morrer pelo fogo, qual borboleta frágil da noite. E é por isso, diz Erika Kohut, que estes dois seres doentes à mais alta escala, isto é, Schumann e Schubert, irmanados pela partilha do mesmo prefixo, são os que têm um lugar mais próximo do meu coração dilacerado. Não o Schumann a quem já todos os pensamentos desertaram, mas o Schumann, mesmo mesmo antes disso ter acontecido! Uma unha negra antes disso! Ele já adivinha a deserção do seu espírito, já sofre com isso até aos seus vasos mais capilares, despede-se já da sua vida consciente, embrenhando-se pelos coros dos anjos e dos demónios, segura-se, porém, mais uma última vez, não mais possuidor da sua total consciência. Ainda um perscrutar nostálgico mais, o luto pela perda do bem mais precioso: ele próprio. A fase em que ainda se sabe o que em si próprio se perde, antes de renunciar por completo."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
14. "...to slip beneath the surface and soar along the silent bottom of the sea agile and shining in water honeycombed with light."
Author: Ellen Meloy
15. "In the medieval tradition, Beksinski seems to believe art to be a forewarning about the fragility of the flesh– whatever pleasures we know are doomed to perish– thus, his paintings manage to evoke at once the process of decay and the ongoing struggle for life. They hold within them a secret poetry, stained with blood and rust."
Author: Guillermo Del Toro
16. "Sesungguhnya hati manusia itu berkarat seperti berkaratnya besi.sahabat bertanya : apakah pengilapnya wahai Rasulullah?Rasulullah menjawap: membaca alQuran dan mengingati maut"
Author: Hlovate
17. "A hole opened up and he had to know what was inside it. So he picked and picked until the hole was huge, and then everything sort of... fell in, him, his wife, his kid, and this fragile life they'd built at the edge of this hole. And that's why he was here, because he'd begun wondering if maybe his father hadn't fallen in the same hole -"
Author: Jess Walter
18. "How do you find your mount, Miss de Lacy?" Amy found it a slug. It was clear Rowanford had taken her caution too seriously. This horse would be ideal for a non-equestrian grandmother. "I feel very safe," she said. "Excellent. I shall take good care of you, Miss de Lacy. Have no fear." Amy sighed and wished there was a convenient piece of furniture to heft to prove she was not as fragile as she appeared."
Author: Jo Beverley
19. "Me?" he said in some surprise. "I won't be dancing! It's the bridal dance. The bride and groom dance alone!"For one circuit of the room," she told him. "After which they are joined by the best man and first bridesmaid, then by the groomsman and the second bridesmaid."Will reacted as he had been stung. He leaned over to speak across Jenny on his left, to Gilan.Gil! Did you know we have to dance?" he asked. Gilan nodded enthusiastically.Oh yes indeed. Jenny and I have been practicing for the past three days, haven't we, Jen?"Jenny looked up at him adoringly and nodded. Jenny was in love. Gilan was tall, dashing, good-looking, charming and very ammusing. Plus he was cloaked in the mystery and romance tat came with being a Ranger. Jenny had only ever known one ranger and that had been grim-faced, gray-bearded Halt."
Author: John Flanagan

Author: John O'Callaghan

Author: Josh Lanyon
23. "Do you have feelings for this kind man?" "You shouldn't ask her such a question," Frances Catherine said. "But do you, Gillian?"
Author: Julie Garwood
24. "A first lesson in the fragility of love and the preternatural cowardice of men. And out of this disillusionment and turmoil sprang Beli's first adult oath, one that would follow her into adulthood, to the States and beyond. I will not serve."
Author: Junot Díaz
25. "'Heroine' is about a declining and imbalanced superstar - a very brave and bold role. I wanted to test whether I could carry a role like this. I have given 200 per cent to this role. She's a very complex character, very aggressive, manipulative and bold, yet she's very fragile."
Author: Kareena Kapoor Khan
26. "Up until relatively recently, creating original characters from scratch wasn't a major part of an author's job description. When Virgil wrote The Aeneid, he didn't invent Aeneas; Aeneas was a minor character in Homer's Odyssey whose unauthorized further adventures Virgil decided to chronicle. Shakespeare didn't invent Hamlet and King Lear; he plucked them from historical and literary sources. Writers weren't the originators of the stories they told; they were just the temporary curators of them. Real creation was something the gods did.All that has changed. Today the way we think of creativity is dominated by Romantic notions of individual genius and originality, and late-capitalist concepts of intellectual property, under which artists are businesspeople whose creations are the commodities they have for sale."
Author: Lev Grossman
27. "There is one province in which, sooner or later, virtually everyone gets dealt a leading role--hero, heroine, or villain.... Unlike the slight implications of quotidian dilemmas that confront the average citizen in other areas of life ... the stakes in this realm could not be higher. For chances are that at some point along the line you will hold in your hands another person's heart. There is no greater responsibility on the planet. However you contend with this fragile organ, which pounds or seizes in accordance with your caprice, will take your full measure."
Author: Lionel Shriver
28. "Before she could finish that thought, Dare kissed her on the top of the head. "You're more fragile than you realize, Molly Alexander." He caught her chin, turning her face toward him. "Don't push yourself. I want you - that's not going to change. I can't say I won't kiss you, but how far and how fast we go is up to you."
Author: Lori Foster
29. "All the same, we should excuse ourselves," Vergil said. "Although I am wondering if the meeting was already well concluded when we intruded." He gave Nathaniel a deep look on the last sentence that made Charlotte's caution prickle. She saw the big brother in him, thinking that a private chat with this man was in order.Bianca still had not picked up the cue. "You are making plans regarding the petitions?""I trust that a petition came up at some point in the visit," Vergil said dryly. "Correct, Knightridge?"Charlotte wanted to die. "Indeed one did," she said. "Mr. Knightridge is proving to be a great help in the cause."Bianca beamed. "I always knew that the two of you would find common ground in something.""Yes, we have discovered that we think alike in one small area," Nathaniel agreed.Charlotte wanted to hit him."Indeed," Vergil muttered."

33. "Çünkü benim durumumu en iyi sen anlarsin. Yalnizligi ve korkuyu en iyi sen bilirsin. Yorgunluklar vardilar fakat ümitsizlik yoktular. Sen bir yerde bulunuyordun, yumusak bir yerdeydin. Sert köselere çarpmaktan yorulan aklimin durgun ve sürekli bir ask içinde ancak seninle birlikte dinlenebilecegini biliyordum. Bizi baskalari anlamaz Sevgi. Baskalarinin akli baskadir. Bu yüzden ikimizi hep garip bakislarla süzmüslerdir. Simdi beni de garip bakislarla süzenler var. Ben onlara aldirmiyorum, insanlarin beni begenip begenmemeleri umrumda degil artik. Ben kendimi tanimakla ilgiliyim."
Author: Oğuz Atay

Author: Peter Carey
37. "Our musicians in residence carry this belief into the classroom. They don't think of children's self-esteem as so fragile that it will be shattered by the suggestion that the child guessed wrong or jumped to an invalid conclusion. They make corrections matter-of-factly, with no feeling that a chid is a failure because she has made an error, but with ocnfidence that the feedback will help the child learn and be accurate the next time."
Author: Peter Perret
38. "On one hand she seems so agile, so athletic, and yet I've seen her appear so awkward that it embarrassed me. She gives the impression of a hard, worldly adroitness, and in some situations she's like an adolescent: rigid with ancient, middle class attitudes, unable to think for herself, falling back on old verities...victim of her family teaching, shocked by what shocks people, wanting what people usually want. She wants a home, a husband, and her idea of a husband is a man who earns a certain amount of money, helps around the garden, does the dishes...the idea of a good husband that's found in This Week magazine; a viewpoint from the most ordinary stratum, that great ubiquitous world of family life, transmitted from generation to generation. Despite her wild language."
Author: Philip K. Dick
39. "You know God does not manifest Himself," Halgan shouted. "That is also heresy. The Revelation is not corporeal. You know this. Why do you persist in this perverted speech?""I like perverted. Maybe you would, too, if you gave it a chance.""Leave my men alone," Rakan said coldly. "Degenerate."Ringil smooched a kiss at him."
Author: Richard K. Morgan
40. "To the American people I say, awaken to what is happening. It is the duty of each citizen to be vigilant, to protect liberty, to speak out, left and right and disagree lest be trampled underfoot by misguided zealotry and extreme partisanship."
Author: Robert Byrd
41. "I think I just said it, but I think it's worth repeating. They gave me hope that there is good in the world out there. There really is. It really does exist. Regardless of how bad things can be, and how down on your luck you can be, or how bad your trust is broken when it comes to warming up to people and all that stuff, I know that there's people out there that genuinely wanna help. Putting yourself in that position is a huge step, and it's a very risky and fragile step, but it's also a step that needs to be taken because there is help. And you can get through something like this. You really can. - Jim, from "To the Survivors"
Author: Robert Uttaro
42. "Why Dream?Life is a difficult assignment. We are fragile creatures, expected to function at high rates of speed, and asked to accomplish great and small things each day. These daily activities take enormous amounts of energy. Most things are out of our control. We are surrounded by danger, frustration, grief, and insanity as well as love, hope, ecstasy, and wonder. Being fully human is an exercise in humility, suffering, grace, and great humor. Things and people all around us die, get broken, or are lost. There is no safety or guarantees.The way to accomplish the assignment of truly living is to engage fully, richly, and deeply in the living of your dreams. We are made to dream and to live those dreams."
Author: S.A.R.K.
43. "We're so old that the winds of age echo along our ribs and pick at our eye sockets. We could be gone tomorrow. A chill, say, or a little slip on the cliff side. I feel as fragile as a dried flower. I rattle a little in the moving air, but I'm only coherent dust-a shape of what once was. My essence is going."
Author: Sheri S. Tepper
44. "Vane looked back at her one last time, knowing he would never see her again. She was so beautiful there with large, amber eyes set in the pale face of a goddess. There was something about her that reminded him of a Rubens angel. She was ethereal and lovely. And far too fragile for an animal." - Vane"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
45. "It's there. The white rose among the dried flowers in the vase. Shriveled and fragile, but holding on to that unnatural perfection cultivated in Snows greenhouse. I grab the vase, stumble down to the kitchen, and throw its contents into the embers. As the flowers flare up, a burst of blue flame envelops the rose and devours it. Fire beats roses again."
Author: Suzanne Collins
46. "A lot of guys have muscles. A lot of strong men in this world. I think it's important to show that even under all this strength there's a fragile side, a side that can be affected."
Author: Sylvester Stallone
47. "But no-one came here to live an ordinary life. Despite what our somnambulistic, mythless society society tells us — a place stuffed to the gilders with unawake, unthinking folk ruled by shoulds, oughts and have-tos; people who have no understanding of themselves; individuals afraid to acknowledge, let alone live their dreams — you came here to weave your unique essence and vision into the world, thus rendering it magnificent, both for yourself and others."
Author: Thea Euryphaessa
48. "Ideally, the umpire should combine the integrity of a Supreme Court judge, the physical agility of an acrobat, the endurance of Job and the imperturbability of Buddha."
Author: Time Life Books
49. "In the preacher's words the Heavenly City has risen up, surmounting their lives, the house, the town -- the final hope, in which all the riddles and ends of the world are gathered, illuminated, and bound. This is the preacher's hope, and he has moved to it alone, outside the claims of time and sorrow, by the motion of desire which he calls faith. In it, having invoked it and raised it up, he is free of the world. But it is this hope -- this last simplifying rest-giving movement of the mind -- Mat realizes he is not free, and never has been. He is doomed to hope in the world, in the bonds of his own love. He is doomed to take every chance and desperate hope of hope between him and death, Virgil's, Margaret's, his. His hope of Heaven must be the hope of a man bound to the world that his life is not ultimately futile or ultimately meaningless, a hope more burdening than despair."
Author: Wendell Berry
50. "Todos somos hombres,por naturaleza, frágiles y capacesde nuestra carne; pocos son ángeles."
Author: William Shakespeare
