2. "Three days a week she helped at the Manor Nursing Home, where people proved their keenness by reciting received analyses of current events. All the Manor residents watched television day and night, informed to the eyeballs like everyone else and rushed for time, toward what end no one asked. Their cupidity and self-love were no worse than anyone else's, but their many experiences' having taught them so little irked Lou. One hated tourists, another southerners; another despised immigrants. Even dying, they still held themselves in highest regard. Lou would have to watch herself. For this way of thinking began to look like human nature--as if each person of two or three billion would spend his last vital drop to sustain his self-importance."
Author: Annie Dillard

Disons que ses objectifs n'étaient pas très hauts. Elle voulait se marier et fonder une famille. Et si elle pouvait épouser le capitaine d'une équipe de foot, c'était encore mieux. [...]Moi, à la même époque, je rêvais d'épouser Aladin pour qu'il m'emmène sur son tapis volant. Donc, vous voyez : on n'avait pas les mêmes valeurs."
Author: Janet Evanovich

And a pea soup that's so bad, it's more pee than soup."Uncle Fifty roared. My sisters laughed. Especially Lou. Pa raised an eyebrow at her, but that didn't quiet her. She knew she was safe because our uncle was laughing. "Don't mind them, Mattie," Abby said, petting me."You like my pea soup, don't you Ab?" I asked, hurt.She looked at me with her kind eyes. "No, Mattie, I don't. It's awful."
Author: Jennifer Donnelly
8. "The man-nurse was his age and had sleepy eyes with dark circles under them, and a jutting Cro-Magnon forehead. His name tag said, improbably, BIBLO.

I don't want to start crying on the job."
Author: Joe Hill

Author: Lara Adrian
12. "I am starting to look like and perform like the Lou that I used to be."

14. "While everyone adjusted themselves and their packs, Donna sniffed curiously at Louie's nose. Her attitude suggested she might want to make friends with the giant dog; Lou couldn't resist the temptation. Once Donna lured Louie in, she slowly, cautiously, turned about to align her hooves with Louie's head. Perhaps she didn't like dogs. Perhaps she didn't want a rival for Monty's attentions. Perhaps she was merely an impish tarkus much like the Dane himself. Cody watched as the Dane failed to grasp the gravity of his predicament. At the last moment, Cody smacked Louie's hind end, scuttling the devious donkey's murderous trap."
Author: Map Whitman

None of this was you fault."But," Mary Lou went on, a little less self-confidently, "if I hadnt then you, Lucien, would just have gone on through eternity never knowing what true love is. And then how would you have felt?""Considerably better than I've felt over the course of the past six months, I imagine," he replied."
Author: Meg Cabot

19. "Madge did the honors. "Are you…keeping company with Doc Piney?"Jesse answered carefully. "We are not dating, but we are seeing a lot of each other." Factually true. Revealing nothing.The three women sat silently for a long moment, sharing glances with each other."You know he has a sad history," Walter Lou said finally."Of course she knows," Madge said immediately."Everybody knows. The question is are you planning on breaking that man's heart again?"The suggestion was not at all what Jesse expected.She stuttered out an answer."I…I don't…I don't think Piney knows me well enough to get his heart broken," she managed finally."Oh, Lord, girl," Madge said. "He's a Baxley. A more lovelorn line of men never graced the earth.""That's the truth of that," Walter Lou agreed. "Those men dote on their women something fierce."

20. "I don't like categorizing stuff, but women's roles all through history have been to act as hierophant or someone who's guarded the secrets or guarded the temple. I'm a girl doing what guys usually did, the way that I look, the goals and kinds of things I want to help achieve through rock. It's more heroic stuff and heroic stuff has been traditionally male. Like Hendrix and Jim Morrison and all those people. I mean, Jim Morrison was trying to elevate the word; he was the poet in rock & roll before me. He was an academic poet. Lou Reed -- another academic poet. I'm more like down-to-earth than them guys"
Author: Patti Smith

26. "The thing in jazz that will get Bix Beiderbecke out of his bed at two o'clock in the morning, pick that cornet up and practice into the pillow for another two or three hours, or that would make Louis Armstrong travel around the world for fifty plus years non stop, just get up out of his sick bed, crawl up on the bandstand and play, the thing that would make Duke Ellington, the thing that would make Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Mary Lou Williams, the thing that would make all of these people give their lives for this, and they did give their lives, is that it gives us a glimpse into what America is going to be when it becomes itself. And this music tells you that it will become itself. And when you get a taste of that, there's just nothing else you're going to taste that's as sweet."
Author: Wynton Marsalis
