1. "Edna restored the toffee to the centre of her tongue and sucking pleasurably, resumed her typing of Naked Love by Armand Levine.

He was a notable example of the fact that nothing can be duller than dull pornography."
Author: Agatha Christie

8. "Dil, anlatma araci oldugu degin tersini de içerir. Kendi disinda hiçbir sey anlatmayabilir. Söyle de söyleyebiliriz bunu: Anlamin olmadigi yerde de islevini sürdürür. Siirde bu daha belirgindir."Ilhan Berk, ‘Poetika', sayfa 11"
Author: Ilhan Berk
9. "Het keuze-geobsedeerde Westen geeft de mens die anders wil eten meer ruimte dan elke andere cultuur ooit heeft gedaan, maar de ironie wil dat de volstrekt niet kieskeurige omnivoor - 'ik vind alles best, ik eet alles' - maatschappelijk bewuster kan lijken dan de mens die op een manier probeert te eten die goed is voor de samenleving. De keuze voor een bepaald soort voedsel wordt door allerlei factoren bepaald, maar de rede (en zelfs het bewustzijn) staat doorgaans niet hoog op die lijst."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
10. "Who's they?" He wanted to know. "Who, specifically, do you think is trying to murder you?""Every one of them," Yossarian told him."Every one of whom?""Every one of whom do you think?""I haven't any idea.""Then how do you know they aren't?""Because..." Clevinger sputtered, and turned speechless with frustration. Clevinger really thought he was right, but Yossarian had proof, because strangers he didn't know shot at him with cannons every time he flew up into the air to drop bombs on them, and it wasn't funny at all."
Author: Joseph Heller
11. "The Doctor snorted. 'Wimp!' He squared his shoulders and turned towards the fire, grinning. 'Race you.' And he was off, running. Jack hesitated, sighed, swore, and ran after him. Levin and Krylek, Catherine and the villagers stared after them in astonishment. Two dark figures running though fire..."
Author: Justin Richards
12. "The acquisition by dishonest means and cunning,' said Levin, feeling that he was incapable of clearly defining the borderline between honesty and dishonesty. 'Like the profits made by banks,' he went on. 'This is evil, I mean, the acquisition of enormous fortunes without work, as it used to be with the spirit monopolists. Only the form has changed. Le roi est mort, vive le roi! Hardly were the monopolies abolished before railways and banks appeared: just another way of making money without work."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
13. "These loaves, pigeons, and two little boys seemed unearthly. It all happened at the same time: a little boy ran over to a pigeon, glancing over at Levin with a smile; the pigeon flapped its wings and fluttered, gleaming in the sunshine among the snowdust quivering in the air, while the smell of freshly baked bread was wafted out of a little window as the loaves were put out. All this together was so extraordinarily wonderful that Levin burst out laughing and crying for joy."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
14. "Throughout the performance Levin felt like a deaf person watching a dance. He was quite perplexed when the music stopped and felt very tired as a result of strained attention quite unrewarded."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
15. "Levin had been married three months. He was happy, but not at all in the way he had expected to be. At every step he found his former dreams disappointed, and new, unexpected surprises of happiness. He was happy; but on entering upon family life he saw at every step that it was utterly different from what he had imagined. At every step he experienced what a man would experience who, after admiring the smooth, happy course of a little boat on a lake, should get himself into that little boat. He saw that it was not all sitting still, floating smoothly; that one had to think too, not for an instant to forget where one was floating; and that there was water under one, and that one must row; and that his unaccustomed hands would be sore; and that it was only to look at it that was easy; but that doing it, though very delightful, was very difficult."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
16. "Konstantin Levin did not like talking and hearing about the beauty of nature. Words for him took away the beauty of what he saw."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
17. "Levin scowled. The humiliation of his rejection stung him to the heart, as though it were a fresh wound he had only just received. But he was at home, and at home the very walls are a support."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
18. "Kitty got up to fetch a table, and, as she passed, her eyes met Levin's. She felt for him with her whole heart, the more because she was pitying him for a suffering of which she was herself the cause. "If you can forgive me, forgive me," said her eyes, "I am so happy.""I hate them all, and you, and myself," his eyes responded, and he took up his hat. But he was not destined to escape. Just as they were arranging themselves round the table, and Levin was on the point of retiring, the old Prince came in, and, after greeting the ladies, addressed Levin."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
19. "Levin evleneli üç ay oluyordu. Mutluydu. Ama onun bekledigi mutluluk degildi bu. Adimbasi, eski hayallerinin kirildigini hissediyor; yeni beklenmedik hayal kirikliklariyla karsilasiyordu. Mutluydu, ama aile yasaminin içine girince her an, hayal ettigi seyin bu olmadigini hissediyordu. Sikça, durgun bir gölde küçücük bir kayigin düzgün, mutlu gidisini seyreden bir insanin, bu kayiga kendi bindigi anda hissedeceklerini hissediyordu. Bu kayikta yolculugun yalnizca sakin sakin, sallanmadan oturmak demek olmadigini, kayigin nereye gidecegini aklindan bir an çikarmamanin, durmadan düsünmenin, kafa yormanin; altinda suyun oldugunu, kürek çekmek zorunda oldugunu unutmamasinin, alisik olmadigi için avuç içleri acisa bile kürek çekmesinin gerektigini, bunu seyretmenin hos bir sey oldugunu, ama yapmanin, hos olsa bile, çok güç oldugunu görüyordu.iletisim yayinlari, sayfa:476."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
20. "No, it's all the same to me," said Levin, unable to suppress a smile."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
21. "But Levin was in love, and so it seemed to him that Kitty was so perfect in every respect that she was a creature far above everything earthly; and that he was a creature so low and so earthly that it could not even be conceived that other people and she herself could regard him as worthy of her."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
22. "He knew she was there by the rapture and the terror that seized on his heart. She was standing talking to a lady at the opposite end of the ground. There was apparently nothing striking either in her dress or her attitude. But for Levin she was as easy to find in that crowd as a rose among nettles. Everything was made bright by her. She was the smile that shed light all around her."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
23. "Now that Vronsky had deceived her, she was prepared to love Levin and to hate Vronsky."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
24. "I shall go on in the same way, losing my temper with Ivan the coachman, falling into angry discussions, expressing my opinions tactlessly; there will be still the same wall between the holy of holies of my soul and other people, even my wife; I shall still go on scolding her for my own terror, and being remorseful for it; I shall still be as unable to understand with my reason why I pray, and I shall still go on praying; but my life now, my whole life apart from anything that can happen to me, every minute of it is no more meaningless, as it was before, but it has the positive meaning of goodness, which I have the power to put into it." - Levin"
Author: Leo Tolstoy
25. "If they hadn't both been pretending, but had had what is called a heart-to-heart talk, that is, simply told each other just what they were thinking and feeling, then they would just have looked into each other's eyes, and Constantine would only have said: ‘You're dying, dying, dying!' – while Nicholas would simply have replied: ‘I know I'm dying, but I'm afraid, afraid, afraid!' That's all they would have said if they'd been talking straight from the heart. But it was impossible to live that way, so Levin tried to do what he'd been trying to do all his life without being able to, what a great many people could do so well, as he observed, and without which life was impossible: he tried to say something different from what he thought, and he always felt it came out false, that his brother caught him out and was irritated by it."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
26. "Stepan Arkadyich smiled. He knew so well this feeling of Levin's, knew that for him all the girls in the world were divided into two sorts: one sort was all the girls in the world except her, and these girls had all human weaknesses and were very ordinary girls; the other sort was her alone, with no weaknesses and higher than everything human."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
27. "L'espressione infantile del viso, unitamente alla delicata bellezza del busto, componevano il suo particolare incanto, che lui ben ricordava; ma quello che in lei lo coglieva sempre di sorpresa era l'espressione degli occhi, miti, tranquilli e sinceri, e in particolare il suo sorriso, che trasportava sempre Levin in un mondo incantato, dove lui si sentiva ingentilito e intenerito, come poteva ricordare di essere lui stesso in rari giorni della sua prima infanzia"
Author: Leo Tolstoy
28. "Between Countess Nordston and Levin there had been established those relations, not infrequent in society, in which two persons, while ostensibly remaining on friendly terms, are contemptuous of each other to such a degree that they cannot even treat each other seriously and cannot even insult each one another."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
29. "No, pardon me, I consider myself and people like me aristocrats: people who can point back to three or four honourable generations of their family, all with a high standard of education (talent and intelligence are a different matter), who have never cringed before anyone, never depended on anyone, but have lived as my father and my grandfather did. I know many such. You consider it mean for me to count the trees in my wood while you give Ryabinin thirty thousand roubles; but you will receive a Goernment grant and I don't know what other award, and I shan't, so I value what is mine by birth and labour... We - and not those who only manage to exist by the bounty of the mighty of this world, and who can be bought for a piece of silver - are the aristocrats.-Levin"
Author: Leo Tolstoy
30. "Levin tried to drink a little coffee, and put a piece of roll into his mouth, but his mouth could do nothing with it. He took the piece out of his mouth, put on his overcoat and went out to walk about again."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
31. "Levin had often noticed in arguments between even the most intelligent people that after enormous efforts, an enormous number of logical subtleties and words, the arguers would finally come to the awareness that what they had spent so long struggling to prove to each other had been known to them long, long before, from the beginning of the argument, but that they loved different things and therefore did not want to name what they loved, so as not to be challenged. He had often felt that sometimes during an argument you would understand what your opponent loves, and suddenly come to love the same thing yourself, and agree all at once, and then all reasonings would fall away as superfluous; and sometimes it was the other way round: you would finally say what you yourself love, for the sake of which you are inventing your reasonings, and if you happened to say it well and sincerely, the opponent would suddenly agree and stop arguing. That was the very thing he wanted to say."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
32. "It seemed ironic that Lowell Levine and I, who were both Jewish, were going over to identify the remains of a man who was so anti-Semitic."
Author: Michael Baden
33. "We think we don't deserve love, we think if we let it in we'll become too soft. But a wise man named Levine said it right. He said." Love is the only rational act."
Author: Morrie Schwartz
34. "Levin delights in the forgetfulness that movement brings, where the pleasure of doing is marvellously foreign to the striving of the will."
Author: Muriel Barbery
35. "Wandaden zoals mijn ontvoering bieden de zwart-witte basis voor de categorieën 'goed' en 'kwaad' waaraan de samenleving behoefte heeft. De dader moet wel een beest zijn, want als we dat geloven, zijn we zelf goed. Een misdrijf moet worden opgetuigd met sadomasochistische fantasieën en wilde orgieën, net zolang totdat het zo ver van ons af staat dat er geen enkel verband met ons eigen leven is.En het slachtoffer moet gebroken zijn en dat ook blijven, anders is het kwaad niet meer op die manier op afstand te houden. Een slachtoffer dat weigert zich in die rol te schikken wordt een symbool van de tegenstellingen van de maatschappij. Die willen we niet zien, want dan zouden we gedwongen zijn over onszelf na te denken."
Author: Natascha Kampusch
36. "Never met Levinson. Ever. He directed those American Express spots for us for Seinfeld, and I was off on some guest spot that I didn't even want to do... and I got talked into doing it."
Author: Patrick Warburton
37. "Quoting son, Noah Levine: Once you see what the heart really needs, it doesn't matter if you're going to live or die, the work is always the same. (25)"
Author: Stephen Levine
38. "Before the war Sofya Levinton had once said to Yevgenia Nikolaevna Shaposhnikova, 'If one man is fated to be killed by another, it would be interesting to trace the gradual convergence of their paths. At the start they might be miles away from one another – I might be in Pamir picking alpine roses and clicking my camera, while this other man, my death, might be eight thousand miles away, fishing for ruff in a little stream after school. I might be getting ready to go to a concert and he might be at the railway station buying a ticket to go and visit his mother-in-law – and yet eventually we are bound to meet, we can't avoid it..."
