2. "Mais quelle étrange leçon de géographie je reçus là! Guillaumet ne m'enseignait pas l'Espagne; il me faisait de l'Espagne une amie. Il ne me parlait ni d'hydrographie, nie de populations, ni de cheptel. Il ne me parlait pas de Guadix, mais des trois orangers qui, près de Guadix, bordent un champ : " Méfie-toi d'eux, marque-les sur ta carte... " Et les trois orangers y tenaient désormais plus de place que la Sierra Nevada. Il ne me parlait pas de Lorca, mais d'une simple ferme près de Lorca. D'une ferme vivante. Et de son fermier. Et de sa fermière. Et ce couple prenait, perdu dans l'espace, à quinze cents kilomètres de nous, une importance démesurée. Bien installés sur le versant de leur montagne, pareils à des gardiens de phare, ils étaient prêts, sous leur étoiles, à porter secours à des hommes.(Terre des Hommes, ch. I)"

"Grace, there's been something I've wanted to do for a very long time now, but things have kept getting in the way." He reached forward, bringing a hand to the side of her face.

Lorcan grinned."Just so you know, I've put down good money on you catching the wedding bouquet. I trust you wouldn't let me down!" as he winked at her, Grace thought his eyes never looked so blue.

He stepped into his room, shutting the door quietly behind him, sitting on the edge of the bed with his head in his hands as he listened to Lorcan move around his room. He did something he hadn't allowed himself since his daddy had passed. He cried—for his loss, for what could have been... but mostly, he cried in shame."
Author: S.J.D. Peterson
15. "Nietzscheja sem prežvecil in prebavil v treh dneh. Po tem velikem zalogaju mi je ostala samo še ena podrobnost osebnosti tega filozofa, še zadnji oreh, ki ga je bilo treba streti: njegovi brki! Federico Garcia Lorca, ki je bil ocaran nad Hitlerjevimi brki, je pozneje izjavil, da "so brki tragicna konstanta moškega obraza". Celo z brki sem nameraval preseci Nietzscheja! Moji že ne bodo zamorjeni, katastroficni, obteženi z wagnerjansko glasbo in meglo. Ne! Moji bodo zašiljeni, imperialisticni, ultraracianalisticni in usmerjeni k nebu, kot vertikalni misticizem, kot španski vertikalni sindikati."
Author: Salvador Dalí

"Appreciate it."

"Don't say things like that!"Noah explodes with laughter. "Put the sausage in the cupcake!" he crows. "The sausage in the cupcake!"Great. I glare at Lorcan, who stares back, unmoved. And, anyway, cupcake? I've never heard it called that."
