But some way he had seemed nearer to her off there in Mexico."

I give him a pointed look."Probably, but your mom actually feel asleep tonight—probably the first night all week. Meanwhile, I'm too hungry to nod off.""So, where does that leave us?" I ask, eyeing his bag of Bugles."Can you be trusted?""That depends. Are you willing to share?" I smile. "Good hiding spot, by the way. Nobody ever uses those baskets.""That's what you think." He gazes down the hall to make sure the coast is clear and then snags a bag of Hershey's Kisses from one of the other four overhead baskets.We park ourselves at the kitchen island and rip both bags open. Five full minutes of lusty devouring pass before either of us speaks."

29. "I started going over the lines in my head for this French play I'm in at school. I play a rabbit called Janot Lapin, who's the leader of a group of farm animals. It's not the most interesting play in the universe, but we only know three verb tenses so far so we didn't have a lot of choices. There's this one scene where I'm really hungry because the landowners aren't feeding us, and I keep saying, "J'ai faim." In case you don't know, that means "I'm hungry," but it really means "I have hunger." That's what real French people say. I think it's neat how French people have hunger, but they aren't hungry like Americans are. I mean, it's a lot easier to try not to have something than to try not to be it."

(from "How")"

31. "Now I felt the long-forgotten urgency of lovemaking, when it seems one's human selves leave, to be replaced by hungry beasts bolting their food. Gone are the civilized beings who talk of manners and journeys and letters; in their places are two bodies straining to give birth to a burst of inhuman pleasure followed by a great, floating nothingness. An explosion of life followed by death - in this we live, and in this we foreshadow our own sweet deaths."
Author: Margaret George
32. "We are always hungry and never satisfied because we don't trust and won't risk. Can we reach a place where we are satisfied with just enough? You are enough. You have enough. Do not worry about tomorrow. God will provide in our lives just as God provides in the Eucharist."
Author: Mary DeTurris Poust
33. "The poor are always rich in children, and in the dirt and ditches of this street there are groups of them from morning to night, hungry, naked and dirty.

36. "In point of fact, he was not afraid to die, not anymore. He now understood with a faith that he had never before possessed that he would see those he had lost when he died, that everything would be made whole, that he would talk to Boukman, and his mother and father and sister, again. It was true that there was no need on earth that could not be slaked and satisfied. When you are thirsty there is water. When you are hungry there is food. It is impossible to need a thing without that thing being available for the having. A man may want a green horse that flies, but he canot need one, for there is no such thing. At this precise moment, Toussaint felt that he needed Boukman, that he could not bear it if he never saw him again, and he knew, because this need existed, that it would be met."
Author: Nick Lake

Author: Orson Scott Card
38. "The words he had written wiggled off the page and escaped from the drawer. The letters stacked themselves, one on top of the other. Their towers reached higher and higher until they stood majestic and tall, surrounding Neftali in a city of promise. HUMANITY. SOLIDARITY. GENEROSITY. PEACE. JUSTICE. LOVE. Then a tiny, conceited word came along. Like a hungry termite, it began to gnaw on the tall words, chewing at their foundation, gulping their pulp until they swayed, toppled, and collapsed. All that remained was one fat, satisfied syllable. FEAR."
Author: Pam Muñoz Ryan

You need to give me a real good reason, otherwise the answer is going to be no." Sam took a deep breath. "I'm going to kill the Antichrist." Big Tom sat completely still for a moment. Then he smiled. "Yep. That'll do it."
Author: Phillip W. Simpson
41. "And dieting, I discovered, was another form of disordered eating, just as anorexia and bulimia similarly disrupt the natural order of eating. "Ordered" eating is the practice of eating when you are hungry and ceasing to eat when your brain sends the signal that your stomach is full. ... All people who live their lives on a diet are suffering. If you can accept your natural body weight and not force it to beneath your body's natural, healthy weight, then you can live your life free of dieting, of restriction, of feeling guilty every time you eat a slice of your kid's birthday cake."
Author: Portia De Rossi

Author: Theodor W. Adorno
49. "Try telling the boy who's just had his girlfriend's namecut into his arm that there's slippage between the signifierand the signified. Or better yet explain to the girlwho watched in the mirror as the tattoo artist stitchedthe word for her father's name (on earth as in heaven)across her back that words aren't made of flesh and blood,that they don't bite the skin. Language is the animalwe've trained to pick up the scent of meaning. It's whywhen the boy hears his father yelling at the doorhe sends the dog that he's kept hungry, that he's kicked,then loved, to attack the man, to show him that every wordhas a consequence, that language, when used right, hurts."
Author: Todd Davis
50. "They were the triumphant and insolent possessors; they had a hall, and a fire, and food and clothing and money, and so they might preach to hungry men, and the hungry men must be humble and listen. They were trying to save their souls- and who but a fool could fail to see that all that was the matter with their souls was that they had not managed to get a decent existence for their bodies?"
Author: Upton Sinclair
