Author: Anna Quindlen
2. "Speaking about time's relentless passage, Powell's narrator compares certain stages of experience to the game of Russian Billiards as once he used to play it with a long vanished girlfriend. A game in which, he says, "...at the termination of a given passage of time...the hidden gate goes down...and all scoring is doubled. This is perhaps an image of how we live. For reasons not always at the time explicable, there are specific occasions when events begin suddenly to take on a significance previously unsuspected; so that before we really know where we are, life seems to have begun in earnest at last, and we ourselves, scarcely aware that any change has taken place, are careering uncontrollably down the slippery avenues of eternity.""
Author: Anthony Powell
3. "But for a younger generation of conservative operatives who would soon rise to power... They were true believers who meant what they said, whether it was 'No New Taxes' or 'We are a Christian Nation.' In fact, with their rigid doctrines, slash-and-burn style, and exaggerated sense of having been aggrieved, this new conservative leadership was eerily reminiscent of some of the New Left's leaders during the sixties. As with their left-wing counterparts, this new vanguard of the right viewed politics as a contest not just between competing policy visions, but between good and evil. Activists in both parties began developing litmus tests, checklists of orthodoxy, leaving a Democrat who questioned abortion increasingly lonely, any Republican who championed gun control effectively marooned. In this Manichean struggle, compromise came to look like weakness, to be punished or purged. You were with us or you were against us. You had to choose sides."
Author: Barack Obama

Author: Bill Maher

Author: Bob Barr
9. "You don't need no gun control, you know what you need? We need some bullet control. Men, we need to control the bullets, that's right. I think all bullets should cost five thousand dollars… five thousand dollars per bullet… You know why? Cause if a bullet cost five thousand dollars there would be no more innocent bystanders. Yeah! Every time somebody get shut we'd say, ‘Damn, he must have done something ... Shit, he's got fifty thousand dollars worth of bullets in his ass.'And people would think before they killed somebody if a bullet cost five thousand dollars. ‘Man I would blow your fucking head off…if I could afford it.' ‘I'm gonna get me another job, I'm going to start saving some money, and you're a dead man. You'd better hope I can't get no bullets on layaway.'So even if you get shot by a stray bullet, you wouldn't have to go to no doctor to get it taken out. Whoever shot you would take their bullet back, like "I believe you got my property."
Author: Chris Rock

"What was this power, this insidious threat, this invisible gun to her head that controlled her life . . . this terror of being called names?She had stayed a virgin so she wouldn't be called a tramp or a slut; had married so she wouldn't be called an old maid; faked orgasms so she wouldn't be called frigid; had children so she wouldn't be called barren; had not been a feminist because she didn't want to be called queer and a man hater; never nagged or raised her voice so she wouldn't be called a bitch . . .She had done all that and yet, still, this stranger had dragged her into the gutter with the names that men call women when they are angry."

Fortunately, all it takes for us to be of one mind is some buttercream frosting."
Author: Jen Lancaster

That if I ever decide to leave this place, I'm going to be a Snack Pack for an Arum. And better yet, I am going to lose complete control over whatever powers I have and wipe out a family of four, then be put down! All I wanted to do today was eat some god damn fries and be normal!"

28. "Escribo y escribiré toda mi vida en español; el francés lo guardo para la correspondencia cuando tengo que escribirle a algún francés. El español es mi lengua de escritor y hoy más que nunca creo que la defensa del español como lengua forma parte de una larga lucha en América Latina que abarca muchos otros temas y muchas otras razones de lucha. La defensa del idioma es absolutamente capital. Si hay un espectáculo penoso es el de latinoamericanos que al cabo de muy poco tiempo en un país extranjero permiten que su idioma se degrade y el segundo idioma comience a entrar; hay una excepción a esto que estoy diciendo y es el caso de las gentes de un nivel mínimo de educación, porque no se les puede exigir de ninguna manera que tengan un control crítico de su lenguaje."
Author: Julio Cortázar

31. "El mundo ha sido siempre así desde la aparición de la vida. Las criaturas nacen y mueren. Ninguna criatura puede sobrevivir sin alimentarse de otra, directa o indirectamente. Para que las criaturas existan, otras tienen que morir. Nosotros estamos en el mundo para que las criaturas vivan. Los demonios están en el mundo para que las criaturas mueran. Si los ángeles no existiésemos, nuestro planeta acabaría por convertirse en un mundo muerto. Si los demonios no existiesen, las criaturas crecerían y se reproducirían sin control, el planeta no podría sustentarlas a todas. Somos los dos extremos de la balanza. La existencia de unos y otros garantiza el equilibrio del mundo."
Author: Laura Gallego García

33. "Remember, anoretics do eat. We have systems of eating that develop almost unconsciously. By the time we realize we´ve been running our lives with an iron system of numbers and rules, the system has begun to rule us. They are systems of Safe Foods, foods not imbued, or less imbued, with monsters and devils and dangers. These are usually "pure" foods, less likely to taint the soul with such sins as fat, or sugar, or an excess of calories. Consider the advertisements for food, the religious lexicon of eating: "sinfully rich," intones the silky voice announcer, "indulge yourself," she says, "guilt-free." Not complex foods that would send the mind spinning in a tornado of possible pitfalls contained in a given food – a possible miscalculation of calories, a loss of certainty about your control over chaos, your control over self. The horrible possibility that you are taking more than you deserve."
Author: Marya Hornbacher
34. "Gun control means being able to hit your target. If I have a 'hot button' issue, this is definitely it. Don't even think about taking my guns. My rights are not negotiable, and I am totally unwilling to compromise when it comes to the Second Amendment."

The flour flaming craft spiraled into the sea."But then he's always been full of surprises," Palamedes added."
Author: Michael Scott
36. "...The CDC has also said that it's virtually impossible to tell a murder victim killed by a shot to the head or spinal column from an infected individual put down legally in the same fashion. What is your answer to critics of the relaxed gun control laws who hold that gun-related violence has actually increased, but has been masked by the postmortem amplification of the Kellis-Amberlee virus?"
Author: Mira Grant
37. "The gun issue is a big, unresolved issue in this country right now. I think it's out of control."

39. "Oh," Sally brightened proud of herself for deciphering his sign language, "you're telling me not to leave my room."Costin nodded his big wolf head again. His eyes had begun glowing back in the party and even now they continued to emit an eerie shade of green.Sally's inner Jen had been triggered as soon as she got the words out. So naturally she did what her inner Jen told her to. She stepped forward putting one toe outside her door. Costin growled, so she stepped back. Watching him coyly she put her other toe outside her door and he growled again. She was inwardly scolding herself for taunting him and allowing her inner Jen to control her actions, but she had discovered long ago that sometimes inner Jen is just more fun.When Sally stuck her foot out for the third time, she giggled when Costin snapped at her. She could tell that he was playing by the way his tail wagged and his eyes lightened, but had not stopped glowing all together."

40. "—No creo que siquiera pueda respirar si no estamos juntos —susurró—. Lo que quiere decir, que cuando te vea el lunes a la mañana, habrán pasado como sesenta horas desde que he respirado. Esa es probablemente la razón por la que estoy tan gruñona, y por qué te grito. Todo lo que hago cuando estamos separados es pensar en ti, y todo lo que hago cuando estamos juntos es entrar en pánico. Porque cada segundo se siente tan importante. Y porque estoy tan fuera de control, no puedo evitarlo. Ni siquiera me pertenezco, soy tuya, ¿y qué si decides que no me quieres? ¿Cómo podrías quererme como te quiero?"
Author: Rainbow Rowell
41. "But they can rule by fraud, and by fraud eventually acquire access to the tools they need to finish the job of killing off the Constitution.''What sort of tools?''More stringent security measures. Universal electronic surveillance. No-knock laws. Stop and frisk laws. Government inspection of first-class mail. Automatic fingerprinting, photographing, blood tests, and urinalysis of any person arrested before he is charged with a crime. A law making it unlawful to resist even unlawful arrest. Laws establishing detention camps for potential subversives. Gun control laws. Restrictions on travel. The assassinations, you see, establish the need for such laws in the public mind. Instead of realizing that there is a conspiracy, conducted by a handful of men, the people reason—or are manipulated into reasoning—that the entire population must have its freedom restricted in order to protect the leaders. The people agree that they themselves can't be trusted."
Author: Robert Anton Wilson

45. "Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly "free" state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors? It cannot."
Author: Tiffany Madison
46. "White folks have controlled New Orleans with money and guns, black folks have controlled it with magic and music, and although there has been a steady undercurrent of mutual admiration, an intermingling of cultures unheard of in any other American city, South or North; although there has prevailed a most joyous and fascinating interface, black anger and white fear has persisted, providing the ongoing, ostensibly integrated fete champetre with volatile and sometimes violent idiosyncrasies."
Author: Tom Robbins
47. "One man with a gun can control 100 without one."
Author: Vladimir Lenin
48. "I am in support of the NRA position on gun control."
