Ben Jonson came of the stock that was centuries after to give to the world Thomas Carlyle; for Jonson's grandfather was of Annandale, over the Solway, whence he"

Now, looking out over this green lawn, and these fine rosebushes, and into the night and the yellow buildings, and the falling Dow Jones Index and the screams of the poor, I am concerned. I have many important things to worry about, but I worry about Bill and the boys too. Because I am the President. Finally. the President of the whole fucking country. And they are Americans, Bill, Hubert, Henry, Kevin, Edward, Clem, Dan and Snow White. They are Americans. My Americans."
Author: Donald Barthelme
12. "That Jones shall worship the god within him turns out ultimately to mean that Jones shall worship Jones. Let Jones worship the sun or moon, anything rather than the Inner Light; let Jones worship cats or crocodiles, if he can find any in his street, but not the god within. Christianity came into the world firstly in order to assert with violence that a man had not only to look inwards, but to look outwards, to behold with astonishment and enthusiasm a divine company and a divine captain. The only fun of being a Christian was that a man was not left alone with the Inner Light, but definitely recognized an outer light, fair as the sun, clear as the moon, terrible as an army with banners."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
13. "The ruby at Melisandre's throat gleamed red. "It is not those foes who curse you to your face that you must fear, but those who smile when you are looking and sharpen their knives when you turn your back.

It was very cold.""It is always cold on the Wall.""You think so?""I know so, my lady.""Then you know nothing, Jon Snow," she whispered."
Author: George R.R. Martin
14. "He is not my father. The thought leapt unbidden to Jon's mind. Lord Eddard Stark is my father. I will not forget him, no matter how many swords they give me. Yet he could scarcely tell Lord Mormont that it was another man's sword he dreamt of..."
Author: George R.R. Martin

17. "Ogarnelo go poczucie beznadziejnosci - beznadziejnosci oswojonej i cieplej, przez co jeszcze bardziej beznadziejnej. Zatrzymal sie przy oknie. Sciezka ginela w jesiennym dywanie opadlych lisci i w mroku: byla tak blisko i zarazem tak daleko, jak Paryz, jak Byt, jak Wolnosc. Wyrzekl sie tych prostych zyciowych sciezek czesciowo z wlasnej woli, czesciowo wbrew niej. Natura byla abstraktem, snem. Rzeczywistosc natomiast zamykala sie tutaj, miedzy korytarzykiem, pielegniarzem i sala."
Author: Ihar Babkou
18. "I don't know, Jondalar. Maybe you haven't found the right woman. Maybe the Mother has someone special for you. She doesn't make many like you. You are really more than most women could bear. If all your love were concentrated on one, it could overwhelm her, if she wasn't one to whom the Mother gave equal gifts."
Author: Jean M. Auel
19. "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
20. "In choosing, moreover, for his father an amiable man of fifty-two, who had already lost an only son, and for his mother a woman of thirty-eight, whose first and only child he was, little Jon had done well and wisely. What had saved him from becoming a cross between a lap dog and a little prig, had been his father's adoration of his mother, for even little Jon could see that she was not merely just his mother, and that he played second fiddle to her in his father's heart: What he played in his mother's heart he knew not yet."
Author: John Galsworthy

I am doing something I hate for you. This is what it means to be in love. So do not spleen me." But to be truthful, I was not even the smallest portion sad to go to Lutsk to translate for Jonathan Safran Foer. As I mentioned before, my life is ordinary. But I had never been to Lutsk, or any of the multitudinous petite villages that still endure after the war. I desired to see new things. I desired to experience volumes. And I would be electrical to meet an American."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
22. "Matar no quiere decir que uno tome el revólver de Buck Jones y haga ¡bum! No es eso. Uno lo mata en el corazón. Va dejando de querer. Y un buen día la persona muere."
Author: José Mauro De Vasconcelos
23. "Kummallista, miten naisilta puuttuu kosketus totuuteen. He elävät omassa maailmassaan, jonka kaltaista ei ole koskaan ollut eikä voi koskaan tulla. Se on kerta kaikkiaan liian kaunis, ja jos he sellaisen saisivat pannuksi pystyyn, se menisi pirstaleiksi ennen ensimmäistä päivänlaskua. Jokin kirottu tosiasia, jonka kanssa me miehet olemme luomisen päivästä asti eläneet kaikessa sovussa, ponkaisisi pystyyn ja kaataisi koko kapistuksen."
Author: Joseph Conrad
24. "Pišcal Neskoncnega neprenehoma igra,njen zvok je cista ljubezen.Ko se ljubezen osvobodi spon, seže po resnici. Kako širno se razlega ta zven!Nima konca in nic mu ne stoji napoti.Podoba te melodije sije kakor milijone sonc.To brenkalo je brez primere-brenkalo, ki oddaja note resnice."
Author: Kabir

What are you doing?"Philip said to Remigius: "Go on, do as I say."Jonathan was horified, "but Ftaher, how will you travel?""I'll walk," Philip said happily. "One of us must.""Let Remigius walk!" Jonathan said in a tone of outrage."Let him ride," Philip said, "He's pleased God today.""What about you? Haven't you pleased God more than Remigius?""Jesus said there's more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people," Philip countered. "Don't you remember the parable of the prodigal son? When he came home, his father killed the fatted calf. The angels are rejoicing over Remigius's tears. The least I can do is give him my horse."
Author: Ken Follett
28. "[Wergeland] slapp å bli en olding som satt og gjorde seg motbydelig for sine omgivelser ved sin elde. En gave var det til ham fra gudene, en nåde var det mot ham av gudene. Og heller ikke gled han nedover til den slappelse i sin produksjon som kanskje ville føre til en St. Olav eller en annen fin anerkjennelse, dertil ble han iallfall ikke gammel nok; nei han døde ung. ("Wergeland", tale på Henrik Wergelands hundreårsdag 17. juni 1908)"

Aidan's going to be a famous rock star, Orlando."Aidan admired her confidence. "From her lips ...""I surely hope, mis amigos, because putting that thing on your neck does not say nine-to-five employment."

32. "Aeron's stone-faced expression cracked, as he turned to give me a dumbfounded look. Meeting his questioning eyes, I let out a little annoyed sigh, "I refuse to believe that you don't know the meaning of ‘cojones'.""I'm well aware of the meaning," he raised his eyebrows, fighting back a smile. "Just a little surprised at your choice of words…""Yeah, I can really paint a verbal picture," I responded dryly."
Author: M.A. George
33. "Notkolle painunut sohva, jolla he istuivat, suuri, korkea kirjoituspöytä ja äidin hauras, leikkauksilla koristettu tuoli sen edessä, hylly, jonka lokerot olivat vielä täynnä hänen hienolla käsialallaan kirjoitettuja papereita, kulunut matto - kaikki, kaikki oli samanlaista kuin ennen, vain Ellen puuttui, Ellen ja hänen vieno sitruunan ja rautayrtin tuoksunsa ja vinojen silmiensä hellä katse. Scarlett tunsi tuskan vihlaisevan sydäntään, niinkuin syvän haavan turruttamat hermot olisivat alkaneet jälleen elää. Hän ei saanut antaa niiden herätä nyt. Hänellä oli edessään koko loput elämäänsä, jolloin niitä saisi kivistää, mutta ei nyt!"

Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix

Instead I hug him. and I am hugged. Hard. And for a long time we stay that way. I feel his chin on my hair, the weight of his head on mine. I think, this is Jonathan. I know Jonathan. And he knows me."
Author: Mariah Fredericks
37. "My guess is that the Jonathan would be as out of place in England or Kazakhstan, the native ground of its ancestors, as I would be in Russia, the native ground of my own. The arrow of natural history won't be reversed: by now the Jonathan's as much an American as I am."
Author: Michael Pollan

Author: Sabrina Ward Harrison
46. "By the standards of a tourist strolling past looking for a quick lunch, the place was a dive. The sign on the window was small and easy to miss, and the antique feel of the place wasn't the prepackaged, old-shit-on-the-wall nostalgia that came with so many chain restaurants. The cafe was just old, and everything about it said old. But Jon liked it that way, if only because it kept the tourists away and spared him from hearing imported ignorance when there was plenty of local ignorance to go around."
Author: Scott B. Pruden

I know everything will turn out badly. I think about that all the time. Even while I'm washing my carpet. Do you understand that? Do you feel the same way?"
Author: Tove Jansson

Author: Vladimir Nabokov

I fell in love.""And?""It didn't work out--isn't working out." Tristan shook his head. "I'm not ready.""Ah," said P.K. They drove the rest of the way in silence.

He was glad he was here with P.K. and not alone in the unbearable silence of snow."

Today's Quote

The place is changed now, and many familiar faces are gone, but the greatest change is myself. I was a child then, I had no idea what the world would be like. I wished to trust myself on the waters and the sea. Everything was romantic in my imagination. The woods were peopled by the mysterious good folk. The Lords and Ladies of the last century walked with me along the overgrown paths, and picked the old fashioned flowers among the box and rose hedges of the garden."
