153. "Es ist nicht so, dass ich unbedingt glücklich sein wollte, das nicht gerade. Ich wollte...mich retten, ja: mich retten. Aber ich habe erst spät begriffen, auf welche Seite man sich schlagen muss: auf die Seite der Sehnsüchte. Man erwartet eigentlich, dass es andere Dinge sind, durch die Menschen gerettet werden können: Pflichterfüllung, Ehrlichkeit, gut sein, gerecht sein. Nein. Es sind die Sehnsüchte, die einen erretten. Sie sind das einzig Wahre. Bist du auf ihrer Seite, wirst du dich retten. Aber als ich das begriff, war es schon zu spät. Wenn du dem Leben Zeit lässt, nimmt es eine eigenartige, unvermeidliche Wendung; und du stellst fest, dass du dich an dem Punkt nicht nach etwas sehnen kannst, ohne dir selbst weh zu tun. An dem Punkt scheitert alles, du kannst dem nicht entgehen, je mehr du um dich schlägst, desto mehr verfängst du dich im dem Netz, je heftiger du aufbegehrst, desto mehr verletzt du dich. Es gibt kein Entrinnen."
Author: Alessandro Baricco

Maybe she'll go away.Well, that was just stupid."
Author: Alisha Rai

160. "You took a life and the theft went unpunished. God didn't strike you down. The sky didn't fall. The morning after, you turned on the faucet and water still came out... It was still good when you raised your arm for a cab and one came towards you out of the flow like magic. You did things that were supposed to end you and found they were only things that changed you. It was a disappointment and a revelation and a bereavement and a new thrilling nudity. It was the basic prosaic obscenity: You kept going."
Author: Glen Duncan
161. "But most of all, as summer slanted to an end, he was learning to love idleness, idleness no longer as stretches of freedom reclaimed by stealth here and there from involuntary labour, surreptitious thefts to be enjoyed sitting on his heels before a flowerbed with the fork dangling from his fingers, but as a yielding up of himself to time, to a time flowing slowly like oil from horizon to horizon over the face of the world, washing over his body, circulating in his armpits and his groin, stirring his eyelids. He was neither pleased nor displeased when there was work to do; it was all the same. He could lie all afternoon with his eyes open, staring at the corrugations in the roof-iron and the tracings of rust; his mind would not wander, he would see nothing but the iron, the lines would not transform themselves into pattern or fantasy; he was himself, lying in his own house, the rust was merely rust, all that was moving was time, bearing him onward in its flow."
Author: J.M. Coetzee
162. "I worry about identity theft. What's to stop somebody from cloning me to drain the cash from my bank account? And it'd be just as easy for my clone to pretend to be me as it is for me to pretend to be me."
Author: Jarod Kintz
163. "As I pulled into the parking lot, I reflected that odds were that not a lot of clandestine meetings involving mystical assassination, theft of arcane power, and the balance of power in the realms of the supernatural had taken place in a Wal-Mart Super Center. But then again, maybe they had. Hell, for all I knew, the Mole Men used the changing rooms as a place to discuss plans for world domination with the Psychic Jellyfish from Planet X and the Disembodied Brains-in-a-Jar from the Klaatuu Nebula. I know I wouldn't have looked for them there."
Author: Jim Butcher
164. "I know a baseball star who wouldn't report the theft of his wife's credit cards because the thief spends less than she does."

165. "Scarlett's mind went back through the years to the still hot noon at Tara when grey smoke curled above a blue-clad body and Melanie stood at the top of the stairs with Charles' sabre in her hand. Scarlett remembered that she had thought at the time: 'How silly! Melly couldn't even heft that sword!' But now she knew that had the necessity arisen, Melanie would have charged down those stairs and killed the Yankee - or been killed herself."
Author: Margaret Mitchell
166. "It would be an instructive exercise for the skeptical reader to try to frame a definition of taxation which does not also include theft. Like the robber, the State demands money at the equivalent of gunpoint; if the taxpayer refuses to pay, his assets are seized by force, and if he should resist such depredation, he will be arrested or shot if he should continue to resist."
Author: Murray Rothbard
167. "One generation after another falls like honeybees upon this memorable forest, rifle its sweets, pack themselves with vital memories, and when the theft is consummated depart again into life richer, but poorer also. The forest, indeed, they have possessed, from that day forward it is theirs dissolubly, and they will never return to walk in it at night in the fondest of their dreams, and use it forever in their books and pictures."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
168. "Let this single hour atoneFor the theft of all of me"
Author: Sara Teasdale

Author: Stephen R. Covey

Here's another to replace it.Yep, that's what it said.One corner of his mouth twitched. He gave himself a deep shock when he burst into an explosive guffaw."
Author: Thea Harrison
