'What is the hardest thing you can possibly do?' she said when I went to her for advice on the darkest day of the first half of my life.I squirmed. How easily Matron probed the gap between ambition and expediency. 'Why must I do what is hardest?''Because, Marion, you are an instrument of God. Don't leave the instrument sitting in its case my son. Play! Leave no part of your instrument unexplored. Why settle for 'Three Blind Mice' when you can play the 'Gloria'?'But, Matron, I can't dream of playing Bach...I couldn't read music.'No, Marion,' she said her gaze soft...'No, not Bach's 'Gloria'.

7. "«C'era una volta una donna simile a una stella che ardeva incandescente nella vastità del cielo. Così come Venere appare al tramonto, lei splendeva di una luce tutta sua. Quando passeggiava, gli alberi ondeggiavano per l'amore che provavano per lei, e l'umile terra le accarezzava i piedi. Giacere accanto a lei significava sentire risuonare nelle tempie il pulsare delle maree che vengono attratte ad adorare la luna. Baciare le sue labbra significava assaporare l'eternità e nutrirsene. Chi può descrivere l'immensità della sua gloria?»"
Author: Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

Author: Colum McCann
9. "Believe me, if Archimedes ever had the grand entrance of a girl as pretty as Gloria to look forward to, he would never have spent so much time calculating the value of Pi. He would have been baking her a Pie! If Euclid had ever beheld a vision of loveliness like the one I see walking into my anti-math class, he would have forgotten all the geometry of lines and planes, and concentrated on the sweet simplicity of soft curves. If Pythagoras had ever had a girl look at him the way Gloria's eyes fix in my direction, he would have given up his calculations on the hypotenuse of right triangles and run for the hills to pick a bouquet of wildflowers."
Author: David Klass

Author: Duffy Brown

Some gargantuan photographer had focused the camera on Gloria and Snap! - the poor plate could but develop, confined like all things to its nature."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
15. "There's only one lesson to be learned form life, anyway," interrupted Gloria, not in contradiction but in a sort of melancholy agreement."What's that?" demanded Maury sharply."That there's no lesson to be learned from life."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

17. "La noche se avecina, ahora empieza mi guardia. No terminará hasta el día de mi muerte. No tomaré esposa, no poseeré tierras, no engendraré hijos. No llevaré corona, no alcanzaré la gloria. Viviré y moriré en mi puesto. Soy la espada en la oscuridad. Soy el vigilante del Muro. Soy el fuego que arde contra el frío, la luz que trae el amanecer, el cuerno que despierta a los durmientes, el escudo que defiende los reinos de los hombres. Entrego mi vida y mi honor a la Guardia de la Noche, durante esta noche y todas las que estén por venir."
Author: George R.R. Martin

Author: George R.R. Martin
19. "A ciência é uma sucessão de hipóteses que se contradizem, de teorias que se contrapõem, de concepções caducas e de esperanças mortas. E a Ciência, tal como soterrou a Magia, poderá um dia ser morta e substituída por um modo de conhecimento superior.Vangloria-se de reduzir as fadigas e as infelicidades dos homens e, com a a ajuda proporcionada à indústria, multiplicou as necessidades e, portanto, o trabalho e a escravidão, aumentando com os conhecimentos inúteis e a vida mais insaciável, a nossa carga de dores.Pretende substituir-se ao sacerdote e não consegue responder às exigências mais desesperadas acerca do destino e da morte, pelo que os homens, após uma longa embriaguez de cientismo, regressam, pouco a pouco, às revelações da fé."
Author: Giovanni Papini
20. "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam."
Author: Ignatius Of Loyola
21. "El golpe militar no surgió de la nada; las fuerzas que apoyaron a la dictadura estaban allí, pero no las habíamos percibido.Algunos defectos de los chilenos que antes estaban bajo la superficie emergieron en gloria y majestad durante ese período.No es posible que de la noche a la mañana se organizara la represión en tan vasta escala sin que la tendencia totalitaria existiera en un sector de la sociedad; por lo visto no éramos tan democráticos como creíamos. Por su parte el gobierno de Salvador Allende no era inocente como me gusta imaginarlo; hubo ineptitud, corrupción, soberbia. En la vida real héroesy villanos suelen confundirse, pero puedo asegurar que en los gobiernos democráticos, incluyendo el de la UnidadPopular, no hubo jamás la crueldad que la nación ha sufrido cada vez que intervienen los militares."
Author: Isabel Allende
22. "Me extendió su mano y monté a horcajadas detrás de él. Con mis brazos rodeé su cintura y lo abracé con fuerza, con uno de sus brazos rodeó los míos y sé que se mostró pensativo. Puse mi cabeza en su espalda, cerrando mis ojos y nos fuimos a todo galope. En esos momentos, sentía que ya no me podían salir palabras, solo una agradable sensación, que recorría todo mi cuerpo hasta concentrarse en cierto punto. Al montar así, junto a él, no podía evitar el pensar en una sola cosa; me imaginaba estar así, encima de él haciéndome sentir la gloria. Me imaginaba amándolo y bebiendo de su boca el dulce néctar, por un momento, mis músculos se contrajeron al imaginar llegar al clímax gimiendo su nombre, me veía sin fuerzas, derrumbada en su deseable pecho y cobijada por sus fuertes brazos. ¡Oh Dios! Necesitaba controlarme, esto no estaba bien. Por los momentos, solo deseaba abrazarlo con fuerza en silencio y que el viaje al castillo fuera eterno."
Author: Itxa Bustillo

May I suggest we make ourselves comfortable in the parlor?"

32. "I think it's mainly when I need inspiration I look at the old pictures. I don't find it as much in the new stuff. I love Carole Lombard. I think she's wonderful. Gloria Grahame was really great. Garbo. Dietrich. People knew how to create an illusion. Now everything is very realistic and straightforward. Everyone's grunge."
Author: Kelly Rutherford
33. "It's never good to sit around and wait for someone or something to change your life. That's why women like Gloria Steinem are burning their bras and marching on Washington."

34. "Matthew had sheepishly unfolded the dress from its paper swathings and held it out with a deprecatory glance at Marilla, who feigned to be contemptuously filling the teapot, but nevertheless watched the scene out of the corner of her eye with a rather interested air.Anne took the dress and looked at it in reverent silence. Oh, how pretty it was--a lovely soft brown gloria with all the gloss of silk; a skirt with dainty frills and shirrings; a waist elaborately pintucked in the most fashinable way, with a little ruffle of filmy lace at the neck. But the sleeves--they were the crowning glory! Long elbow cuffs, and above them two beautiful puffs divided by rows of shirring and bows of brown-silk ribbon."
Author: L.M. Montgomery
35. "Angelo frunce el ceño y me mira con una expresión que espero, por la memoria de mi padre y la gloria de mi madre, que no sea de pena, porque entonces sí que me lo cargo."
Author: Laura Gallego García
36. "Sé que no sé lo que no sé; envidio a aquellos que sabrán más que yo, pero también sé que tendrán que medir, pesar, deducir y desconfiar de sus deducciones exactamente igual que yo, y ver en lo falso parte de lo verdadero, y tener en cuenta en lo verdadero la eterna mixtión de lo falso. Jamás me agarré a una idea por temor al desamparo en que caería sin ella. Nunca aliñé un hecho verdadero con la salsa de la mentira, para hacerme su digestión más fácil.He soñado mis sueños; no pretendo que sean más que sueños. Me guardé muy bien de hacer de la verdad un ídolo, prefiriendo dejarle su nombre más humilde de exactitud. Mis triunfos y mis riesgos no son los que se cree; existen glorias distintas de la gloria y hogueras distintas de la hoguera. He llegado casi a desconfiar de las palabras. Moriré un poco menos necio de lo que nací."
Author: Marguerite Yourcenar
37. "Everybody has a jury, the voices they carry inside. Earl Briggs sits on my jury, Gloria Dayton, too. They are there with Katie and Sandy, my mother, my father, and soon Legal Siegel as well. Those I have loved and those I have hurt. Those who bless me and those who haunt me. My gods of guilt. Every day I carry on and I carry them close. Every day I step into the well before them and I argue my case."
Author: Michael Connelly
38. "Unsettled by the sudden appearance of Captain Quire within her court, Gloriana resolved to forego all frivolous entertainments and shun the more unnecessary pleasures. Yet, the queen reasoned, this surely did not apply to healthful exercise, such as riding in the royal park. Nor could she refuse to spend the remainder of the afternoon in quiet seclusion, lying face down upon a cushioned bench in her private dressing room while gentle Lady Mary rubbed all the soreness from her muscles. Such occupations were safe, and harmless. It was only afterwards, when she was sleeping deeply, that Captain Quire came to her in a dream."
Author: Michael Moorcock
39. "¡Dios no os de paz y si gloria!"
Author: Miguel De Unamuno

Author: Oliver Plaschka
41. "I put some nice thick socks and my Alpine slippers and then curled up in a chair by the fire to read The Beautiful and Damned. 'Fitzgerald's a poet', Shakespear had said when she recommended it, […]. The writing was exquisite, I had to admit, but it was making me sad to read about Gloria and Anthony. They talked prettily and had nice things, but their lives were hollow. I didn't have the stomach for such a dire picture of marriage, not just now."
Author: Paula McLain

44. "Ri, here's a question for you," Stella started. She opened it up to everyone else, as well. "When do your kids stop being pets and start being people?" The room went silent, except for Gloria trying to stifle her giggles. Stella looked around and felt pleased that she'd gotten the desired reaction. "What are you talking about? How could you call children pets?" Shannon demanded before Bernadette had the chance to. "No, this is an honest question." Stella insisted. "You have them, you name them. They're helpless, and you teach, or train, them. Feed them, water them, whatever. And as they grow up, you just hope that they grow up well and don't spend their time clawing your nice sofa or humping your leg."Stella, "Sugar and Spies: Spy Sisters Book 1"
Author: Rebekah Martin
45. "All her life, from the time she was eight or nine years old, Gloria had relied on a neat, nearly automatic little trick of her mind for adjusting to minor disappointments. When you opened the bright wrappings of some meager or poorly chosen gift, you simply let your mind tell you it was just what you wanted; that way you could always make the right response, and you could even believe it."
Author: Richard Yates
46. "In the humanist world following Erasmus, man is at the centre of the universe. Man becomes largely responsible for his own destiny, behaviour and future. This is the new current of thought which finds its manifestation in the writing of the 1590s and the decades which follow. The euphoria of Elizabeth's global affirmation of authority was undermined in these years by intimations of mortality: in 1590 she was 57 years old. No one could tell how much longer her golden age would last; hence, in part, Spenser's attempts to analyse and encapsulate that glory in an epic of the age. This concern about the death of a monarch who - as Gloriana, the Virgin Queen - was both symbol and totem, underscores the deeper realisation that mortality is central to life. After the Reformation, the certainties of heaven and hell were less clear, more debatable, more uncertain."
Author: Ronald Carter
47. "If I hear ‘Karma Chameleon' one more time, I swear I'm going to find Boy George and make him eat Jesse's record. What does red, gold, and green have to do with anything anyway? (Gloria)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
48. "Xypher flashed himself into Simone's bedroom, expecting to find her there.It was empty.Closing his eyes, he sensed for presences in the condo. There no Simone, but Jesse and Gloria in Jesse's room.Without thinking, he flashed in there to find the two ghosts naked on the bed. "Oh g-ds, I'm blind." He spun around to give them his back."Don't you knock?" Jesse said."
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
49. "But naturally Jackson's giving Danny the play-by-play because, hello, if you were Jackson and Gloria liked you, wouldn't you be renting a billboard about it?"
Author: Susane Colasanti
