1. "Ce vernis ne vaut rien. Mais pour en revenir à la lune, c'était pendant une belle nuit d'août. (Hélicon se détourneavec dépit et se tait, immobile.) Elle a fait quelques façons. J'étais déjà couché. Elle était d'abord toute sanglante, au-dessus de l'horizon. Puis elle a commencé à monter, de plus en plus légère, avec une rapidité croissante. Plus elle mon-tait, plus elle devenait claire. Elle est devenue comme un lac d'eau laiteuse au milieu de cette nuit pleine de froissements d'étoiles. Elle est arrivée alors dans la chaleur, douce, légè-re et nue. Elle a franchi le seuil de la chambre et avec sa lenteur sûre, est arrivée jusqu'à mon lit, s'y est coulée et m'a inondé de ses sourires et de son éclat. - Décidément, ce vernis ne vaut rien. Mais tu vois, Hélicon, je puis dire sans me vanter que je l'ai eue."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "The air was soft, as it often was in this lovely month, and Eddie inhaled its sweetness. He found himself uplifted as we worked, caught up in something outside himself and his petty wants and needs. The clouds drifted like ice in a tumbler. Through his lens the river seemed made of light, there was the shimmer, and for a moment the world seemed whole to him."
Author: Alice Hoffman

Author: Ally Carter
5. "He was only for the joyous days, the days of courage, when she could share with him all the good things he brought with his passion for novelty and change. But he knew nothing of her; he was no companion to her sadness. He could never imagine anyone else's mood, only his own. His own were so immense and loud, they filled his world and deafened him to all others. He was not concerned to know whether she could live or breathe within the dark caverns of his whale-like being, within the whale belly of his ego."
Author: Anaïs Nin
6. "Telling yourself you like the way you look is easy. Believing it is an entirely different kettle of whales."
Author: Andrew Biss
7. "He saw the young man's face in the mirror up on the wall, he saw the thick wind-ruffled hair and the little scar on the cheekbone. The face moved in the mirror and when he looked round he could not see it anywhere in the room, and when he wanted to call out the sickness choked him, and now he tried to fight the icy sickness, but like whales the waves of it fell on him till he was pounded and drowned, and while he froze suffocating and could not move or breathe..."
Author: Anna Kavan
8. "Kimi zaman öyle geliyor ki, hayatim boyunca kati hale geçemedim ben, durmadan masalarin, koltuklarin, sehpalarin altina ve yetiskinlerin ayaklarinin dibine çöken, bereket versin havadan agir bir gaz olarak yasadim bunca yili. Yirmi alti yili. Ve bu yirmi alti yil boyunca tek bir seyi istedim, tek bir seyin pesinden kostum, kos dedim ruhuma, kos alçak, kos pislik, o da kostu…Karsima çikan herkesin, kadin erkek, çoluk çocuk, herkesin bana asik olmasini istedim. Iste benim basit gerçegim! Ama artik, içkili ve kalabalik bir aksam yemegi hayal ediyorum. Açik havada, çiplak ampullerin altinda. Güzel seyler yiyip içmisiz. Nefis bir yaz gecesi. Masada kalan son kisi ben olmak istiyorum. Eslerin birlikte kalkmasini seyrediyorum sessizce. Sonra erkeklerden yemege yalniz gelmis kadinlari evlerine birakmalarini rica ediyorum. Masada tek basima kalmak istiyorum. Rüzgarla sallanan çiplak ampüllerin altinda. Agustosböceklerini dinliyorum ve bir parça kuru ekmek atiyorum agzima."
Author: Baris Biçakçi
9. "Oh, don't mind Humpty. He's inhaled a hell of a lot of super-glue."
Author: Bill Willingham
10. "I think records were just a little bubble through time and those who made a living from them for a while were lucky. There is no reason why anyone should have made so much money from selling records except that everything was right for this period of time. I always knew it would run out sooner or later. It couldn't last, and now it's running out. I don't particularly care that it is and like the way things are going. The record age was just a blip. It was a bit like if you had a source of whale blubber in the 1840s and it could be used as fuel. Before gas came along, if you traded in whale blubber, you were the richest man on Earth. Then gas came along and you'd be stuck with your whale blubber. Sorry mate – history's moving along. Recorded music equals whale blubber. Eventually, something else will replace it."
Author: Brian Eno
11. "We shall not lie on our backs at the Red Castle and watch the vultures wheeling over the valley where they killed the grandson of Genghiz. We will not read Babur's memoirs in his garden at Istalif and see the blind man smelling his way around the rose bushes. Or sit in the Peace of Islam with the beggars of Gazar Gagh. We will not stand on the Buddha's head at Bamiyan, upright in his niche like a whale in a dry-dock. We will not sleep in the nomad tent, or scale the Minaret of Jam. And we shall lose the tastes - the hot, coarse, bitter bread; the green tea flavoured with cardamoms; the grapes we cooled in the snow-melt; and the nuts and dried mulberries we munched for altitude sickness. Nor shall we get back the smell of the beanfields, the sweet, resinous smell of deodar wood burning, or the whiff of a snow leopard at 14,000 feet."
Author: Bruce Chatwin
12. "She smiles and snuggles into me as we wait for our table. I inhale her scent. Vanilla and something else. Something different. Smokey almost. Sexy. It drives me crazy with need and I have to move away while I can."
Author: Christine Fonseca
13. "Few bands in hard rock history have been so adept at balancing the awesome and trivial as Van Halen in their prime."
Author: Chuck Eddy
14. "There are little wisps of jelly in a living brain. Deagle knows this well: neurons, transmitting signals - and the soul, so to speak, is somewhere in those flashes. He heard once on a science program that the spindle cell - present in humans, whales, some apes, elephants - may be at the heart of what we call our "selves."What we recognize in the mirror - that thread we follow through time that we call "me"? It's just a diatom, a paramecium, a bit of ganglia that branches and shudders assertively. A brief brain orgasm, like lightning.In short, it's all chemicals. You can regiment it easily enough: fluoxetine, sertraline, paroxetine, escitalopram, citalopram - the brain can be washed clean, and you can reset yourself, Ctrl+Alt+Del. You don't have to be a prisoner of your memories and emotions."
Author: Dan Chaon
15. "You invite things to happen. You open the door. You inhale. And if you inhale the chaos, you give the chaos, the chaos gives back."
Author: Dave Eggers
16. "These parvenu farmers clear the land by bushfires that smolder beneath the peat for many seasons, surfacing in dry spells to sow renewed calamity. The third blow to the Moriori was the whalers, now calling at Ocean Bay, Waitangi, Owenga & Te Whakaru in sizable numbers"
Author: David Mitchell
17. "Young poets are too apt to consider themselves "children of the mist" – they must dwell apart from men and contemn their kind, or they fear they shall be only taken for common-place characters. They forget that poetry is the language which speaks to all hearts—and that instead of cherishing the sacred fire as a lonely light, as one that burns in a charnel house, they should bring it forth in its beauty and brightness as a guide to the pleasant places and sparkling waters of earth's happiness and the radiant messenger of heaven's exalted hopes. And they should rejoice and be glad that to them the kindling of such high imagination is given. ~ Sarah Josepha Hale Ladies Magazine, November 1830From the Introduction to Cherishing the Sacred Fire"
Author: Deborah L. Halliday
18. "The perfume that her body exhaled was of the quality of that earth-flesh, fungi, which smells of captured dampness and yet is so dry, overcast with the odour of oil of amber, which is an inner malady of the sea, making her seem as if she had invaded a sleep incautious and entire. Her flesh was the texture of plant life, and beneath it one sensed a frame, broad, porous and sleep-worn, as if sleep were a decay fishing her beneath the visible surface. About her head there was an effulgence as of phosphorous glowing about the circumference of a body of water - as if her life lay through her in ungainly luminous deteriorations - the troubling structure of the born somnambule."
Author: Djuna Barnes
19. "Oh dear! A drunken infidel weaver! said Mr. Hale to himself."
Author: Elizabeth Gaskell
20. "If you live in Milton, you must learn to have a brave heart, Miss Hale.'‘I would do my best,' said Margaret rather pale. ‘I do not knowwhether I am brave or not till I am tried; but I am afraid Ishould be a coward."
Author: Elizabeth Gaskell
21. "It was one of Mrs. Hale's fitful days, when everything was a difficulty and a hardship; and Mr Lennox's appearance took this shape, although secretly she felt complimented by his thinking it worthwhile to call."
Author: Elizabeth Gaskell
22. "He soon acquired the forlorn look that one sees in vegetarians. His skin became covered with a thin moss, similar to that which flourished on the antique vest that he never took off, and his breath exhaled the odor of a sleeping animal."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
23. "It was fun while it lasted, but it never seemed real to me. I could not believe I was in Van Halen."
Author: Gary Cherone
24. "She was Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt, Khaleesi and queen, Mother of Dragons, slayer of warlocks, breaker of chains, and there was no one in the world that she could trust."
Author: George R.R. Martin
25. "Huge hills and mountains of casks on casks were piled upon her wharves, and side by side the world-wandering whale ships lay silent and safely moored at last; while from others came a sound of carpenters and coopers, with blended noises of fires and forges to melt the pitch, all betokening that new cruises were on the start; that one most perilous and long voyage ended, only begins a second; and a second ended, only begins a third, and so on, for ever and aye. Such is the endlessness, yea, the intolerableness of all earthly effort."
Author: Herman Melville
26. "One captain, seizing the line-knife from his broken prow, had dashed at the whale, as an Arkansas duelist at his foe, blindly seeking with a six-inch blade to reach the fathom-deep life of the whale. That captain was Ahab."
Author: Herman Melville

Author: Jasper Fforde
30. "And the word lost for a single breath, as I lie against you; I promise everything that ever was will grow alive again: the first man in his sudden ignorance spits a sour apple whole, turns to her, who will be no more than an ache in the bones of his heart, as you are for me; for this breath, in my arms, the rain falling through the moment's light; then let me rest for one day, for the strength to unmake myself; the beasts of the earth and the great whales, to shift continents into oceans, to take down the firmament and blink into the failing light, the failing darkness for a moment's breath, a moment's touch, brushing your heart like this, as all things fall back into themselves, leaving nothing in the beginning but the word."
Author: John Glenday
31. "Benle mutlulugum arasina saplanan mesafe dünya degildi, bombalar ve yanan binalar degildi, bendim, düsünmemdi, bir seyleri asla koyuveremiyor olmanin kanseriydi. Cehalet tam mutluluk mudur, bilmiyorum ama düsünmek çok aci verici ve söyleyin bana, düsünmek bana ne verdi, beni hangi üstün mertebeye getirdi? Düsünüyor, düsünüyor ve düsünüyorum, kendimi milyon kere mutlulugun disinda düsündüm ama bir kere bile içinde düsünmedim. Çikarabildigim son sözcük "ben"di ki feci bir seydi..."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Author: Latrell Sprewell
35. "Perhaps it was the word "God" that was inviting to me, a word I thought I knew too much about. The one who had tortured Job, who had Abraham lift the ax to his son, who, disguised as a whale, had swallowed Jonah. I know now that the name does not refer to any deity, but means simply to call out and pray, to summon."
Author: Linda Hogan
36. "Once, as he inhaled with his customary vehemence, I had a thought that made my armpits come alive."

37. "We'll win, of course," he said. "You don't want that," said the demon. "Why not, pray?""Listen," said Crowley desperately, "how many musicians do you think your side have got, eh? First grade, I mean." Aziraphale looked taken aback. "Well, I should think-" he began. "Two," said Crowley. "Elgar and Liszt. That's all. We've got the rest. Beethoven, Brahms, all the Bachs, Mozart, the lot. Can you imagine eternity with Elgar?"
Author: Neil Gaiman
38. "Television screens saturated with commercials promote the utopian and childish idea that all problems have fast, simple, and technological solutions.

Author: Neil Postman
39. "...senin üzerinde birakmasini istedigim etkiyi sözlerimin birakmasina izin ver lütfen. O sözleri direnmeden benimsemeni ve onlara, senin bana üstün geldigin bir oyundaki hamlelermis gibi davranmamani istiyorum. Sözlerim senin içine, durgun bir göle düsercesine düsmeliler, halka halka yayilmali, dalgalar yaratmalilar ve bütün bunlar gerçeklesirken senin hiçbir seye müdahale etmemeni, yanitini sadece sözlü vermekte degil içinden vermekte de aceleci davranmamani, olanlarin etkisi yayilip sen söylediklerimi gerçekten anlayana kadar beklemeni istiyorum. Yapacak misin bunu Patrice? Benim için yapacak misin? Bir kez, bir tek kez seni bir kalkan gibi koruyan söz ustaligini kenara itecek, incitilmene ve eger kaçinilmazsa da yaralanmana izin verecek misin? Birbirimizden kurtulabilmemiz için?"

40. "Stop calling me that!' Haley hissed softly. 'For the hundredth time, i am not the Daniel-Son to your Mr. Miyagi."
Author: R.L. Mathewson
41. "Eventually man, too, found his way back to the sea. Standing on its shores, he must have looked out upon it with wonder and curiosity, compounded with an unconscious recognition of his lineage. He could not physically re-enter the ocean as the seals and whales had done. But over the centuries, with all the skill and ingenuity and reasoning powers of his mind, he has sought to explore and investigate even its most remote parts, so that he might re-enter it mentally and imaginatively."
Author: Rachel Carson
42. "Still, Lindsay stops getting dressed, even though he's only half-done, because he gets this urge to ambush the kid with a hug. Just that, nothing else. He wraps his arms around Valentine's skinny body and pulls him close and rests his cheek on the still-damp hair and inhales the cherry-almond scent of his shampoo, and Valentine says, "Oh!" in a really odd way, like he's just read a particularly interesting fact on the back of a Penguin biscuit wrapper. Lindsay's got his eyes shut but he can feel the kid's hands creeping up his bare arms, over his shoulders. One stays there and the other comes to rest on the back of his neck, fingers playing idly with the ends of his hair, and several minutes pass without sound or movement, just the gentle thud of heartbeats. "What's that for?" Valentine asks, when Lindsay finally lets him go. "Don't know. Nothing. Just seemed the kind of thing you'd like. BAM, surprise ninja cuddles."
Author: Richard Rider
43. "Percy inhaled the muffin. The coffee was great. Now, Percy thought, if he could just get a shower, a change of clothes, and some sleep, he'd be golden. Maybe even Imperial golden."
Author: Rick Riordan
44. "I had whale tartare when I was in Japan, but I probably wouldn't have it again."
Author: Sasha Cohen
45. "We are all lonely voyagers sailing on life's ebb tide,To a far off place were all stripling warriors have died,Sometime at eve when the tide is low,The voices call us back to the rippling water's flow,Even though our boat sailed with love in our hearts,Neither our dreams or plans would keep heaven far apart,We drift through the hush of God's twilight pale,With no response to our friendly hail,Suddenly he pulls us through the reef's cutting sea,Back to the place that he asked us to be,The friendly barges that were anchored so near,In silent sorrow drop their salted tears,Yet I have no fear of home and work done well,In this life I broke the waves and rode the swell,So don't look for me on the ocean's floor to find,I've never left the weathered docks of your loving mind,For I am in the moon, the wind and the whale's evening song,I am the sailor of eternity whose voyage is not gone."
Author: Shannon L. Alder
46. "I pulled a dirty black sweatshirt from the laundry basket on my son's floor and tried to drink in his scent, to savor the essence of my sweet boy. I inhaled it long and hard, wanting to permanently implant all of him in my brain, to make him last forever."
Author: Shelley Ramsey
47. "I'm pregnant." Brent dropped his bag on the driveway. "What?" "I'm pregnant and you almost got blown up, you ass," Hayden said shakily. "I'm never speaking to you again." He went toward her slowly, laying a reverent hand on her belly. "There could be a mini-duchess in here?" His exhale sounded shaky. "Holy shit."
Author: Tessa Bailey
48. "I've sucked way too much cement for this year. Bad juju rising off them city sidewalks. I need to babble with a brook or two, inhale starlight, make friends with some trees."
Author: Tom Robbins
49. "The same subversion of power by truth is evident in the way in which Luke begins his account of Jesus of Nazareth. Luke is at pains to put his readers on notice that this is no ordinary history. He has an angel anticipate cousin John by saying, "with the spirit and power of Elijah he will go before him" (1:17). He has Gabriel declare that "nothing will be impossible with God" (1:37). He offers us an alternative genealogy that refuses the royal recital of Matthew and provides a list of the uncredentialed, rather like Roots by Alex Haley that traces a genealogy that the plantation masters never suspected (Luke 3:23–38).6 In the midst of this playful subversion, Luke has John go public in the empire. He does so by locating the reader amid all the recognized totems of power:"
Author: Walter Brueggemann
50. "The buzzard has nothing to fault himself with.Scruples are alien to the black panther.Piranhas do not doubt the rightness of their actions.The rattlesnake approves of himself without reservations.The self-critical jackal does not exist.The locust, alligator, trichina, horseflylive as they live and are glad of it.The killer whale's heart weighs one hundred kilosbut in other respects it is light.There is nothing more animal-likethan a clear conscienceon the third planet of the Sun."
Author: Wisława Szymborska
