2. "For there upon a bed of soft wool lay the most splendid jewel, a jewel such as Dyson had never dreamed of, and within it shone the blue of far skies, and the green of the sea by the shore, and the red of the ruby, and deep violet rays, and in the middle of all it seemed aflame as if a fountain of fire rose up, and fell, and rose again with sparks like stars for drops."
Author: Arthur Machen

4. "There is a stage you reach, Deagle thinks, a time somewhere in early middle age, when your past ceases to be about yourself. Your connection to your former life is like a dream or delirium, and that person who you once were is merely a fond acquaintance, or a beloved character from a storybook. This is how memory becomes nostalgia. They are two very different things - the same way that a person is different from a photograph of a person."
Author: Dan Chaon
5. "The slate black sky. The middle stepof the back porch. And long agomy mother's necklace, the beadsrolling north and south. Brokenthe rose stem, water into drops, glassknob on the bedroom door. Last summer'spot of parsley and mint, white rootsshooting like streamers through the cracks.Years ago the cat's tail, the bird bath,the car hood's rusted latch. Brokenlittle finger on my right hand at birth--I was pulled out too fast. What hasn''tbeen rent, divided, split? Broken the days into nights, the night skyinto stars, the stars into patternsI make up as I trace themwith a broken-off bladeof grass. Possible, unthinkable,the cricket's tiny back as I lieon the lawn in the dark, my harta blue cup fallen from someone's hands."
Author: Dorianne Laux
6. "Rather than showing themselves to be an ally to the middle class by ending the AMT or repealing it for years to come, my Republican colleagues refused to include it in today's legislation and America's middle class will surely suffer that choice greatly."
Author: Ellen Tauscher
7. "Rapping and singing are not two polar opposites. There's so much middle ground. And I think there's a lot of people who find that middle ground."
Author: Ezra Koenig
8. "One fine day, in the middle of the night, two dead boys got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other. They pulled out their swords and shot one another. One deaf cop, on the beat heard the noise, and came and shot the two dead boys."
Author: Holly Black
9. "The great ages did not perhaps produce much more talent than ours,' [T.S.] Eliot wrote. 'But less talent was wasted."
Author: Jonah Lehrer
10. "I turn on my computer to search Craigslist for apartment listings. The wireless window pops up, and I realize with some regret that all I know about my neighbours is their wireless network names: Krypton, Space balls, Couscous, and Scarlet. From this I can tell little else than that they're fans of Superman, Mel Brooks, Middle Eastern cuisine, and the colour red. I look out my window, wondering whose house is whose and what private food and entertainment consumption occurs in each and how I will never get to know."
Author: Jonathan Goldstein
11. "You'll find that marriage is a good short cut to the truth. No, not quite that. A way of doubling back to the truth. Another thing you'll find is that the years of illusion aren't those of adolescence, as the grown-ups try to tell us; they're the ones immediately after it, say the middle twenties, the false maturity if you like, when you first get thoroughly embroiled in things and lose your head. Your age, by the way, Jim. That's when you first realize that sex is important to other people besides yourself. A discovery like that can't help knocking you off balance for a time."
Author: Kingsley Amis
12. "When I'm done, I contemplate lying down in the middle of the road to let a car finish me off. I'm already half-dead."
Author: Lindsey Leavitt
13. "I would love to be better at cooking but I hate cleaning up afterwards. I love the process of putting everything together and the chance of getting it right or wrong but it takes ten minutes to eat it and then ages to clean."
Author: Mark Webber
14. "Way I see it, maybe it's not so unfair, as unfinished. If you stopped in the middle of a lot of stories, they'd seem unfair. You're still in the middle of yours."
Author: Mia Sheridan
15. "If I was sad or afraid, I would sit in a corner and sing. If I was happy I would jump into the middle of the room and sing. It was how I expressed my emotions."
Author: Nana Mouskouri
16. "The Stoics taught a life of restraint and control, the personal cultivation of learning, beauty, and reason. The Stoics asked the Romans to realize that much that is encountered in life is beyond the individual's control. Make the best of what can be humanly cultivated. It is a kind of Platonism shrunk to a pursuit of private feelings and thoughts: Do the best with what you can control and refine, and let the rest go."The world is rational, but it is only amenable to active intervention within the limits of the individual's capacity. Do not try to be an overachiever. Do not dream of social transformation. Private cultivation rather than social action makes for the good life. Although the slave Epictetus was one of the principal Stoic writers, the emperor Marcus Aurelius's upper-class background is more typical of its devotees."Stoicism is a narrow ethic, one suitable to the emotional and intellectual needs of aristocrat and slave alike, but less useful for the ambitious middle class."
Author: Norman F. Cantor
17. "Even when I begin with a situation that's basically funny or sad, I like to keep poking around in it. I like to get into the middle of a relationship, to explore the subtle places."
Author: Paul Mazursky
18. "There's no conscious plan here; my whole life in politics as a state legislator and in Congress has been about strengthening the middle class."
Author: Peter Welch
19. "A good writer should draw the reader in by starting in the middle of the story with a hook, then go back and fill in what happened before the hook. Once you have the reader hooked, you can write whatever you want as you slowly reel them in."
Author: Roland Smith
20. "If I must go to heaven's endClimbing the ages like a stairBe near me and forever bendWith the same eyes above me there;Time will fly past us like leaves flying,We shall not heed, for we shall beBeyond living, beyond dying,Knowing and known unchangeably."
Author: Sara Teasdale

Today's Quote

W sportowym sklepie pod kwadratowymi filarami kupilem spory czerwony plecak bez stelarza i upchnalem do niego dwa spiwory. Cienkie, ale innych nie mieli. W pustym, wykafelkowanym na zielono miesnym zaladowalem trzy kilo boczku, pare konserw i kabanosy na okrase i dlatego ze lekkie. W tym sklepie bylo jak w basenie, jak w jakiejs lazni, na srebrnych hakach wisialy bialo-czerwone polcie, a kasa i waga tez byly srebrne. W pierwszym lepszym sklepie z manekinami na wystawie kupilem kilka par grubych skarpet. Siekiere kupilem w sklepie z siekierami. I jeszcze papierosy. A w monopolowym dwie butelki naszego spirytusu. Gdy placilem, wpadly mi w oko malenkie flaszeczki z wyborowa, takie na dwa lyki. Wypchalem sobie nimi kieszenie."
