Favorite Kian Quotes

51. "Priyayi zaman dulu kan bekerja dan mengabdi kepada kaum penjajah, bukan bekerja dan mengabdi kepada kaum kawula seperti kita ini. Mereka bersikap ningrat, maunya dilayani. Mereka menjunjung atasan dan tak mau mengerti tangise wong cilik. Mereka maunya membentuk tata nilai sendiri dan malu bergaul dengan rakyat biasa. Dan mereka angkuh tentu saja. Mereka jarang menyadari bahwa gaji yang mereka terima berasal dari wong cilik, setidaknya berasal dari harta milik bersama seluruh rakyat. Pokoknya priyayi zaman dulu itu menurut pohon jengkol demikian tak berharga karena miskin akan nilai kemanusiaan yang sejati."
Author: Ahmad Tohari
52. "The other night we talked about literature's elimination of the unessential, so that we are given a concentrated "dose" of life. I said, almost indignantly, "That's the danger of it, it prepares you to live, but at the same time, it exposes you to disappointments because it gives a heightened concept of living, it leaves out the dull or stagnant moments. You, in your books, also have a heightened rhythm, and a sequence of events so packed with excitement that I expected all your life to be delirious, intoxicated."Literature is an exaggeration, a dramatization, and those who are nourished on it (as I was) are in great danger of trying to approximate an impossible rhythm. Trying to live up to Dostoevskian scenes every day. And between writers there is a straining after extravagance. We incite each other to jazz-up our rhythm."
Author: Anaïs Nin
53. "...ilmu demikian luas untuk disombongkan..."
Author: Andrea Hirata
54. "Jika anda memiliki kesempatan mendapatkan cinta pertama di sebuah toko kelontong, meskipun toko itu bobrok dan bau tengik, maka rebutlah cepat-cepat kesempatan itu, karena cinta semacam itu bisa menjadi demikian indah tak terperikan!"
Author: Andrea Hirata
55. "Kushirikiana na maadui wa nchi yetu ni hatia ya kosa la uhaini. Adhabu yake ni kifo, au kifungo cha maisha."
Author: Enock Maregesi
56. "Ketidaksukaan pada yang kotor dapat menjadi sedemikian besar sehingga hal itu akan mencegah kita membersihkan diri"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
57. "Your Kentuckian of the present day is a good illustration of the doctrine of transmitted instincts and peculiarities. His fathers were mighty hunters, - men who lived in the woods, and slept under the free, open heavens, with the stars to hold their candles; and their descendant to this day always acts as if the house were his camp, - wears his hat at all hours, tumbles himself about, and puts his heels on the tops of chairs or mantel-pieces, just as his father rolled on the green sward, and put his upon trees or logs, - keep all the windows and doors open, winter and summer, that he may get air enough for his great lungs, - calls everybody "stranger", with nonchalant bonhommie, and is altogether the frankest, easiest, most jovial creature living."
Author: Harriet Beecher Stowe
58. "In the Carolinas they say "hill people" are different from "flatlands people," and as a native Kentuckian with more mountain than flatlands blood, I'm inclined to agree. This was one of the theories I'd been nursing all the way from San Francisco. Unlike Porterville or Hollister, Bass Lake was a mountain community ... and if the old Appalachian pattern held, the people would be much slower to anger or panic, but absolutely without reason or mercy once the fat was in the fire. Like the Angels, they would tend to fall back in an emergency on their own native sense of justice -- which bears only a primitive resemblance to anything written in law books. I thought the mountain types would be far more tolerant of the Angels' noisy showboating, but -- compared to their flatlands cousins -- much quicker to retaliate in kind at the first evidence of physical insult or abuse."
Author: Hunter S. Thompson
59. "If you have sacrificed my nation to preserve the peace of the world, I will be the first to applaud you. But if not, gentlemen, God help your souls." Czechoslovakian foreign minister Jan Masaryk to Lord Halifax as reaction to announcement of allies' betrayal in 1938."
Author: Jan Masaryk
60. "The denizens of Feyland find the absence of magic to be quite funny. I mean no offense. ""None taken.""For example – In the Land Over the Crystal River (for that's how we refer to humans), there was once a man and a woman. And the man was in love with the woman, and wanted her for himself. But because he had no magic, he couldn't feel whether or not there was a "pull" towards her or not, so he didn't know whether she loved him or not. So what did he do?""What?""He had to ASK her!" Kian couldn't help laughing."I don't get it!""Ask her!" said Kian. "It's funny – because he didn't have magic." His laughter grew louder and less controlled, tinkling like bells in the winter snow. "He had to ask her!"I realized that there were some cultural barriers Kian and I might never transcend."

61. "The way you're talking…" Tears were shining in Kian's eyes. "It sounds like you don't think you're coming back." Kian to Bree, Spring Frost (Frost Series #7)"
Author: Kailin Gow
62. "I can't wait." Kian pressed my hands to his lips. "I love you with all my heart, all my being, all of myself. Whatever my mother says, whatever the law says, you are still my intended. I can feel it. Feel it the way I feel the power of Winter Magic in my blood. It is a truth more ancient than any laws, any magic. We can still communicate telepathically, with our minds, which is one magic of love. When you have love for someone, and it is returned, lovers can communicate through the mind - as long as we have that connection, we will never be truly parted. Promise me that, Breena."
Author: Kailin Gow
63. "As I gave my hand to one and then another of the Winter Knights, hoping to forget Kian's kiss in the arms of the other dancers, I could feel Kian's eyes piercing through me, their flame-tinged ice searing through my soul."
Author: Kailin Gow
64. "You know what truth is?" said Karabekian. "It's some crazy thing my neighbor believes. If I want to make friends with him, I ask him what he believes. He tells me, and I say, ‘Yeah, yeah—ain't it the truth?"
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
65. "The wrought-iron gate squeaked as Lucas opened it. He lowered the rented bike down the stone steps and onto the sidewalk. To his right was the most famous Globe Hotel in Paris, disguised under another name. In front of the entrance five Curukians sat on mopeds. Lu-cas and his eighteen-month-old friend then shot out across the street and through the invisible beam of an-other security camera.He rode diagonally across the place de la Concorde and headed toward the river. It seemed only natural. The motorcycles trailed him. He pedaled fast across the Alex-andre III bridge and zipped past Les Invalides hospital. He tried to turn left at the Rodin Museum, but Goper rode next to him, blocking his escape."
Author: Paul Aertker

Net ir tie, kurie sakosi, kad ju galvoje tušcia, tarkim, ivairus nušviteliai, guru, magai, ateiviai iš kitu planetu ir panašiai, net ir ju galvas kas nors kruša, na, kad ir ta pati tuštuma.

Author: Vladimir Nabokov
72. "Kamu percaya sama konsep takdir, nggak?""I do," jawabnya lugas. "Orang-orang bertemu karena memang ditakdirkan untuk bertemu, berpisah karena memang ditakdirkan untuk berpisah. Kehidupan setiap orang diorkestrasikan sedemikian rupa sehingga setiap momen memiliki sebab dan akibat. Benang merah, takdir, nasib, whatever you call it."
