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. "Dans les épaisseurs de la nuit sèche et froide, des milliers d'étoiles se formaient sans trêve et leurs glaçons étincelants, aussitôt détachés, commençaient de glisser insensiblement vers l'horizon. Janine ne pouvait s'arracher à la contemplation de ces feux à la dérive. Elle tournait avec eux et le même cheminement immobile la réunissait peu à peu à son être le plus profond, où le froid et le désir maintenant se combattaient. Devant elle, les étoiles tombaient, une à une, puis s'éteignaient parmi les pierres du désert, et à chaque fois Janine s'ouvrait un peu plus à la nuit. Elle respirait, elle oubliait le froid, le poids des êtres, la vie démente ou figée, la longue angoisse de vivre et de mourir."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "He bent his head and brushed my lips with his. His hair spilled against my forehead, sleek and startling. Shock held me immobile, shock—and something else. Part of me wanted to lean into him."
Author: Ann Aguirre
4. "A moment later he was sent sprawling on a hard wood floor. The idiots left him alone – why they thought a simple bash on the head would keep him immobile for long was beyond him. They wouldn't have much of a career if they made mistakes like this. There were times when the incompetence of the enemy was simply an insult."
Author: Anne Stuart
5. "«Merda…» Furono queste le sole parole che riuscirono a raggiungere le labbra di Dima e gli fuoriuscirono dalla bocca.La pelle di Irina era più bianca del solito, quasi trasparente, e i capelli erano luminosi e setosi come una nuvola di zucchero filato. Nonostante lei fosse avvolta di stracci e di sporcizia, per Dima quella che aveva di fronte non era una donna, ma una dea scesa tra i mortali per illuminare la sera e sostituire la luna nel firmamento notturno.Irina si fermò e rimase immobile senza pronunciare alcuna parola. In attesa. Era cosciente di mostrare molto più di quello che qualcuno avrebbe dovuto vedere, ma della complessità di quel momento la preoccupava solo che l'uomo che amava la guardasse con occhi differenti. Lo sguardo di disprezzo per chi è diverso.(brano inedito tratto da Teufel, il Diavolo in uscita a fine Marzo)"
Author: Eilan Moon
6. "We suddenly feel fearful and apprehensive, naked in our perishable flesh, and for just a moment we wish we could go back to being stone—crumbling in death rather than rotting, trapped inside an immobile prison of stone rather than reduced to immaterial souls like those that now rattled within our skulls. The moment passes. There is no point in regretting irreversible decisions—one has to live with them, and we try."
Author: Ekaterina Sedia
7. "The anarch is (I am simplifying) on the side of gold: it fascinates him, like everything that eludes society. Gold has its own immeasurable might. It need only show itself, and society with its law and order is in jeopardy.The anarch is on the side of gold : this is not to be construed as a lust for gold. He recognizes gold as the central and immobile power. He loves it, not like Cortez, but like Montezuma, not like Pizarro but like Atahualpa ...."
Author: Ernst Jünger
8. "Observe that for the novelist who has remained Christian, like myself, man is someone creating himself or destroying himself. He is not an immobile being, fixed, cast in a mold once and for all. This is what makes the traditional psychological novel so different from what I did or thought I was doing. The human being as I conceive him in the novel is a being caught up in the drama of human salvation, even if he doesn't know it."
Author: François Mauriac
9. "« L'erreur est de vouloir une vie immobile. On veut que le temps s'arrête, que l'amour soit éternel, que rien ne meure jamais, pour se prélasser dans une perpétuelle enfance dorlotée. On bâtit des murs pour se protéger et ce sont ces murs qui un jour deviennent une prison. »"
Author: Frédéric Beigbeder
10. "L'image la plus simple de la vie organique unie à la rotation est la marée. Du mouvement de la mer, coït uniforme de la terre avec la lune, procède le coït polymorphe et organique de la terre et du soleil.Mais la première forme de l'amour solaire est un nuage qui s'élève au-dessus de l'élément liquide. Le nuage érotique devient parfois orage et reombe vers la terre sous forme de pluie pendant que la foudre défonce les couches de l'atmosphère. La pluie se redresse aussitôt sous forme de plante immobile.La vie animale est entièrement issue du mouvement des mers et, à l'intérieur des corps, la vie continue à sortir de l'eau salée. La mer a jouée ainsi le rôle de l'organe femelle qui devient liquide sous l'excitation.La mer se branle continuellement.Les éléments solides contenus et brassés par l'eau animée d'un mouvemnet érotique en jaillissent sous forme de poissons volants."
Author: Georges Bataille
11. "The call of love sounds very hollow among these immobile rocks."
Author: Gustav Mahler
12. "J'essayais de me raisonner : je me sentais la volonté bien ferme de ne point avoir peur, mais il y avait en moi autre chose que ma volonté, et cette autre chose avait peur. Je me demandai ce que je pouvais redouter ; mon moi brave railla mon moi poltron , et jamais aussi bien que ce jour-là je ne saisis l'opposition des deux êtres qui sont en nous, l'un voulant, l'autre résistant, et chacun l'emportant tour à tour.Cet effroi bête et inexplicable grandissait toujours et devenait de la terreur. Je demeurais immobile, les yeux ouverts, l'oreille tendue et attendant. Quoi ? Je n'en savais rien, mais ce devait être terrible."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
13. "The kitchen door opened and the entire Weasley family, plus Hermione, came inside, all looking very happy, with Mr Weasley walking proudly in their midst dressed in a pair of striped pyjamas covered by a mackintosh."Cured!" he announced brightly to the kitchen at large. "Completely cured!"He and all the other Weasleys froze on the threshold, gazing at the scene in front of them, which was also suspended in mid-action, both Sirius and Snape looking towards the door with their wands pointing into each other's faces and Harry immobile between them, a hand stretched out to each, trying to force them apart."Merlin's beard," said Mr Weasley, the smile sliding off his face, "what's going on here?"
Author: J.K. Rowling
14. "Trente chevaux sur une colline rouge; D'abord ils mâchonnent,Puis ils frappent leur marque,Ensuite ils restent immobiles.(Les dents)"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
15. "Nick knew the moment she realized her robe had dropped. Knew when the knowledge she was naked hit her full force. Watched her lips purse a small circle of horror right before sanity hit to make her reach for the robe.Nick used his two-second time span to make a decision.Her fingers started to yank up the material when he blocked her motion, lowered his head, and stamped his mouth over hers. Shock held her immobile and he used the time to his advantage. One quick thrust parted her plump lips and allowed him entry—entry to every slick, feminine heated corner of her mouth. Drugged on the taste of her, he circled her tongue with quick, urgent strokes, begging her to give it all back to him.And she did.Full power."
Author: Jennifer Probst
16. "Bien sûr ces changements de comportement culturel et l'invention de mumltiples diversions font partie d'un système économique qui me dépase. J'envisage ce système comme un bain dans une piscine anémiée, stérile, bondée, puant le chlore, en comparaison d'une délicieuse baignade dans un lac au fond des bois, la berge du lac bordée de nénuphars en fleurs où sont perchées de petites tortues, un ou deux hérons dans les grands pins ou dans l'eau peu profonde, quelques serpents d'eau parmi les massifs d'ajoncs, et quand vous plongez vous voyez les poissons qui se reposent immobiles sous les bûches dressées. Même les profondeurs obscures semblent séduisantes en comparaison d'une piscine, comme une promenade printanière sous la pluie dans les bois en comparaison d'une série télévisée où des gens se font descendre ou tabasser à New York ou à Los Angeles tandis que des durs à cuire enchaînent d'insipides répliques soi-disant spirituelles."
Author: Jim Harrison
17. "Fear sits and smiles and is predatory, immobile and silent and serene; an observer who conserves his energy and is content to wait."
Author: John Scalzi
18. "I told her that I could not marry her, because…because I was in love with you." For a long time Madeline sat in her chair, immobile, listening only to the sound of her blood pounding in her ears. She stared blankly at Adam. "You can't be." He bowed his head. "You can't possibly love me. I'm nothing.""You're not nothing. You're everything."
Author: Julianne MacLean
19. "You couldn't pretend you had lost nothing... you had to begin there, not let your blood freeze over. If your heart turned away at this, it would turn away at something greater, then more and more until your heart stayed averted, immobile, your imagination redistributed away from the world and back only toward the bad maps of yourself, the sour pools of your own pulse, your own tiny, mean, and pointless wants."
Author: Lorrie Moore
20. "Your silence exists as does my self gathering. But so does the almost absolute silence of the world's dawning. In such suspension, before every utterance on earth, there is a cloud, an almost immobile air. The plants already breathe, while we still ask ourselves how to speak to each other, without taking breath away from them."
Author: Luce Irigaray
21. "...for reading, once begun, quickly becomes home and circle and court and family, and indeed, without narrative, I felt exiled from my own country. By the transport of books, that which is most foreign becomes one's familiar walks and avenues; while that which is most familiar is removed to delightful strangeness; and unmoving, one travels infinite causeways, immobile and thus unfettered."
Author: M.T. Anderson
22. "Cerco di capire cosa rende Sean così diverso dagli altri, cosa lo fa sembrare così vibrante e immobile al tempo stesso, e alla fine penso che sia qualcosa che ha a che fare con l'esitazione. La maggior parte della gente esita fra un passo e l'altro o fa una pausa o in qualche modo interrompe le fasi di un processo, che sia fasciare una zampa o mangiare un panino o semplicemente vivere la vita. Ma nel caso di Sean, non c'è mai una mossa di cui non sia sicuro, anche se significa non muoversi affatto."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
23. "All writers must go from now to once upon a time; all must take care not to be captured and held immobile by the past."
Author: Margaret Atwood
24. "For me, madness was definitely not a condition of illness; I did not believe that I was ill. It was rather a country, opposed to Reality, where reigned an implacable light, blinding, leaving no place for shadow; an immense space without boundary, limitless, flat; a mineral, lunar country, cold as the wastes of the North Pole. In this stretching emptiness, all is unchangeable, immobile, congealed, crystallised. Objects are stage trappings, placed here and there, geometric cubes without meaning.People turn weirdly about, they make gestures, movements without sense; they are phantoms whirling on an infinite plain, crushed by the pitiless electric light. And I - I am lost in it, isolated, cold, stripped purposeless under the light."
Author: Marguerite Sechehaye
25. "All rivers run full to the sea; those who are apart are brought together; the lost ones are redeemed; the dead come back to life; the perfectly blue days that have begun and ended in golden dimness continue, immobile and accessible; and, when all is perceived in such a way as to obviate time, justice becomes apparent not as something that will be, but something that is."
Author: Mark Helprin
26. "In a sense, I am a moralist, insofar as I believe that one of the tasks, one of the meanings of human existence - the source of human freedom - is never to accept anything as definitive, untouchable, obvious, or immobile. No aspect of reality should be allowed to become a definitive and inhuman law for us. We have to rise up against all forms of power - but not just power in the narrow sense of the word, referring to the power of a government or of one social group over another: these are only a few particular instances of power. Power is anything that tends to render immobile and untouchable those things that are offered to us as real, as true, as good."
Author: Michel Foucault
27. "Whenever I think about ancient cultures nostalgia seizes me. Perhaps this is nothing but envy of the sweet slowness of the history of that time. The era of ancient Egyptian culture lasted for several thousand years; the era of Greek antiquity for almost a thousand. In this respect, a single human life imitates the history of mankind; at first it is plunged into immobile slowness, and then only gradually does it accelerate more and more."
Author: Milan Kundera
28. "Harder than any pottery or steel was a person's manner of thinking; if a person chose to be firmly set in his ways he was forever immobile. On the other hand, if that same person decided to seek another way, or several other ways, there was no substance on earth that could stop such ambition."
Author: Nadia Scrieva
29. "Now and then the fantastic shadows of birds in flight flitted across the long tussore-silk curtains that were stretched in front of the huge window, producing a kind of momentary Japanese effect, and making him think of those pallid, jade-faced painters of Tokyo who, through the medium of an art that is necessarily immobile, seek to convey the sense of swiftness and motion."
Author: Oscar Wilde
30. "When I throw back my head and howlPeople (women mostly) sayBut you've always done what you want, You always get your way- A perfectly vile and foulInversion of all that's been.What the old ratbags meanIs I've never done what I don't.So the shit in the shuttered chateauWho does his five hundred wordsThen parts out the rest of the dayBetween bathing and booze and birdsIs far off as ever, but soIs that spectacled schoolteaching sod(Six kids, and the wife in pod, And her parents coming to stay)...Life is an immobile, locked, Three-handed struggle betweenYour wants, the world's for you, and (worse)The unbeatable slow machineThat brings what you'll get. Blocked, They strain round a hollow stasisOf havings-to, fear, faces.Days sift down it constantly. Years.--The Life with the Hole in It"
Author: Philip Larkin
31. "In a perfect patch of paradise he stays immobile for an eternity while the predawn breath strokes his skin and kisses each vertebrae down his spine."
Author: Poppet
32. "I hate being immobile."
Author: RJ Mitte
33. "He never complicates a desire by overthinking it, unlike Mirabelle, who spins a cocoon around an idea until it is immobile."
Author: Steve Martin
34. "Au lieu d'être immobile comme il convient à un pied embaumé depuis quatre mille ans, il s'agitait, se contractait et sautillait sur les papiers comme une grenouille effarée."
Author: Théophile Gautier
35. "What makes the voice pathetic is that it doesn't know what kind of people it's reaching. Us. No one hears it, except us. This Age wanted heroes. It got us instead: carefully constructed, but immobile. Subtle but,unfit to take upthe burden of the times. It happens. A whole generation of washouts. History says stand up, and we totter and collapse, weeping, moved, but notsufficient."
Author: Tony Kushner
36. "Two gorgeous guys slaving in the kitchen. Doesn't get any better than this.''You have low standards,' Chait grinned over his shoulder and dropped bread into the toaster. 'If I had two hot girls in my kitchen, I'd want them naked.' I stood immobile, seeing Chait and Hayden in my minds eye. Naked, cooking for me.Hayden glanced my way and chuckled as I dashed away."
