1. "Rockwood didn't have a movie theater or an IHOP or a strip mall. But it did have two churches, a ramshackle bar, and last (but certainly not least) Wacky Willie's Deluxe Goofy Golf, a barren landscape of wilted ferns and plastic flamingos with peeling paint. Wacky Willie had added the 'Deluxe' when finally ridding the thirteenth hole windmill of a stubborn family of bats after a great and terrible struggle that would forever be known as 'The Fearsome Bat War of Rockwood County' by Willie, but was usually referred to as 'That Time Willie Had to Get Rabies Shots' by everyone else."

Porthos: Little pimple... meet me behind the Luxembourg at 1 o'clock and bring a long wooden box. D'Artagnan: Bring your own... Porthos: [laughs]"

8. "Bu bagimsiz, kendi kendine yeten zihinsel varolus tarzinin bir örnegini Goethe'nin hayatinda görürüz. Champagne'daki savas esnasinda, harbin bütün kargasasi ve kesmekesi ortasinda o renk teorisi için gözlemler yapiyordu ve bu savasin sayisiz felaketleri kisa bir süre için Luxemburg satosuna çekilmesine izin verir vermez Renk Ögretisi'ni yazmaya koyulmustu. Böylece o bizlere takip etmemiz gereken bir örnek, bir ülkü birakmisti: Yeryüzünün tadi tuzu olarak bizler dünyanin selleri firtinalari, yanimizi yöremizi istila etse de, zihinsel hayatimizin gereklerinin pesinde kosarken bizi asla hiçbir seyin rahatsiz etmesine izin vermemeli ve köle kadinin degil, özgür kadinin çocuklari oldugumuzu hiçbir zaman aklimizdan çikarmamaliyiz. 'Sallanmis, sarsilmis fakat meyveleri dalinda' özdeyisiyle birlikte kalkanlarimiza islenmek üzere bir arma olarak rüzgarin alabildigine sarsip salladigi, fakat her seye ragmen kipkirmizi meyvelerini dallarindan dökemedigi bir agaci öneriyorum."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
9. "So etwas wie ein ständiges Spurensicherungsteam gibt es übrigens nicht. da die Spurensicherung so teuer ist, bestellt man sie beim Innenministerium immer nur häppchenweise wie beim chinesischen Lieferservice. Aus der prozession von Plastikanzügen zu schließen, die an uns vorüberzog, hatte Stephanopoulos sich das Super-Deluxe-Menü für sechs Personen mit einer extraportion Reis gegönnt. Und ich war dann wohl der Glückskeks."
Author: Ben Aaronovitch

Author: Bret Easton Ellis
11. "A reader of mine is a deluxe reader, not because I'm so great but because in order to get to me you have to take a path through literature, not through some books bought out of curiosity at the bookstore. A reader of mine has to have read other things."
Author: César Aira

14. "There was a guy with extra millions in the bank. And he spent all his free time, all his energy, spending his money. His cars, his houses, his vacations. Just like the rich bankers here in Luxembourg, whose business was making money and whose passion was spending it."
Author: Chris Pavone

Author: Donna Karan
16. "So: ‘Why did you laugh?' demanded Philippa, and shook Jerott's hand off her arm. ‘Oh, that?' said Lymond. ‘But, my dear child, the picture was irresistible. Daddy, afflicted but purposeful, ransacking the souks of the Levant for one of his bastards, with an unchaperoned North Country schoolgirl aged—what? twelve? thirteen?—to help change its napkins when the happy meeting takes place.… A gallant thought, Philippa,' said Lymond kindly, sitting down at the table. ‘And a touching faith in mankind. But truly, all the grown-up ladies and gentlemen would laugh themselves into bloody fluxes over the spectacle. Have some whatever-it-is."
Author: Dorothy Dunnett

Author: Douglas Sirk
18. "No man wants to fuck a skeleton—and nibbling crackers and water like a prisoner of war at dinner isn't attractive. It just makes us think about what a cranky bitch you're going to be later on because you're starving. If a guy's into you? A cheeseburger deluxe is not going to scare him away. And if he's not? Ingesting all the greens on Peter Cottontail's farm isn't going to change that, trust me."
Author: Emma Chase
19. "If I walked down by different streets to the Jardin du Luxembourg in the afternoon I could walk through the gardens and then go to the Musée du Luxembourg where the great paintings were that have now mostly been transferred to the Louvre and the Jeu de Paume. I went there nearly every day for the Cézannes and to see the Manets and the Monets and the other Impressionists that I had first come to know about in the Art Institute at Chicago. I was learning something from the painting of Cézanne that made writing simple true sentences far from enough to make the stories have the dimensions that I was trying to put in them. I was learning very much from him but I was not articulate enough to explain it to anyone. Besides it was a secret. But if the light was gone in the Luxembourg I would walk up through the gardens and stop in at the studio apartment where Gertrude Stein lived at 27 rue de Fleurus."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
20. "In the morning I walked down the Boulevard to the rue Soufflot for coffee and brioche. It was a fine morning. The horse-chestnut trees in the Luxembourg gardens were in bloom. There was the pleasant early-morning feeling of a hot day. I read the papers with the coffee and then smoked a cigarette. The flower-women were coming up from the market and arranging their daily stock. Students went by going up to the law school, or down to the Sorbonne. The Boulevard was busy with trams and people going to work."
Author: Ernest Hemingway
21. "Quittant Neuilly pour Paris XVIe, nous sommes entrés dans une vitesse sans mémoire, la rapidité des gens qui n'ont plus de temps à perdre, ou plutôt : nous inventions une nouvelle bourgeoisie qui n'avait plus le luxe de s'intéresser au temps perdu."
Author: Frédéric Beigbeder
22. "Les hommes doivent être dressés en vue des besoins de notre temps, afin qu'ils soient en mesure de mettre la main à la pâte ; qu'ils doivent travailler à la grande usine des "utilités" communes avant d'être mûrs, et même afin qu'ils ne deviennent jamais mûrs, — car ce serait là un luxe qui soustrairait au "marché du travail" une quantité de force. On aveugle certains oiseaux pour qu'ils chantent mieux : je ne crois pas que les hommes d'aujourd'hui chantent mieux que leurs grands-parents, mais ce que je sais, c'est qu'on les aveugle tout jeunes. Et le moyen, le moyen scélérat qu'on emploie pour les aveugler, c'est une lumière trop intense, trop soudaine et trop variable. Le jeune homme est promené, à grands coups de fouet, à travers les siècles : des adolescents qui n'entendent rien à la guerre, aux négociations diplomatiques, à la politique commerciale, sont jugés dignes d'être initiés à l'Histoire politique.Deuxième Considération intempestive, ch. 7"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
23. "For work: I bought some pens. Normally, I used makeshift pens, the kind of unsatisfactory implements that somehow materialized in my bag or in a drawer. But one day, when I was standing in line to buy envelopes, I caught sight of a box of my favorite kind of pen: the Deluxe Uniball Micro. "Two ninety-nine for one pen!" I thought. "That's ridiculous." But after a fairly lengthy internal debate, I bought four. It's such a joy to write with a good pen instead of making do with an underinked pharmaceutical promotional pen picked up from a doctor's office. My new pens weren't cheap, but when I think of all the time I spend using pens and how much I appreciate a good pen, I realize it was money well spent. Finely made tools help make work a pleasure."
Author: Gretchen Rubin
24. "This is all a figurative way of speaking about what is unmentionable. What is unmentionable is pure fuck and pure cunt; it must be mentioned only in de luxe editions, otherwise the world will fall apart. What holds the world together, as I have learned from bitter experience, is sexual intercourse. But fuck, the real thing, cunt, the real thing, seems to contain some unidentified element which is far more dangerous than nitroglycerine."
Author: Henry Miller
25. "Arriver per fas et nefas au paradis terrestre du luxe et des jouissances vaniteuses, pe´trifier son cœur et se mace´rer le corps en vue de possessions passage`res, comme on souffrait jadis le martyre de la vie en vue de biens e´ternels, est la pense´e ge´ne´rale ! pense´e d'ailleurs e´crite par- tout, jusque dans les lois, qui demandent au le´gislateur : Que payes-tu ? au lieu de lui dire : Que penses-tu ? Quand cette doctrine aura passe´ de la bourgeoisie au peuple, que deviendra le pays ?"
Author: Honoré De Balzac
26. "Les avares ne croient pas à une vie à venir. Le présent est tout pour eux. Cette réflexion jette une horrible clarté sur l'époque actuelle, où, plus qu'en aucun autre temps, l'argent domine les lois, la politique et les moeurs. Institutions, livres, hommes et doctrines, tout comspire à miner la croyance d'une vie future sur laquelle l'édifice social est appuyé depuis dix-huit cents ans. Maintenant le cercueil est une transition peu redoutée. L'avenir, qui nous attendait par delà le requiem, a été transposé dans le présent. Arriver per fas et nefas au paradis terrestre du luxe et des jouissances vaniteuses, pétrifier son coeur et se macérer le corps en vue de possessions passagères, comme on souffrait le martyre de la vie en vue de biens éternels est la pensé générale! pensée d'ailleurs écrite partout, jusque dans les lois...."
Author: Honoré De Balzac
27. "As Luxenberg's work has only recently been published we must await its scholarly assessment before we can pass any judgements. But if his analysis is correct then suicide bombers, or rather prospective martyrs, would do well to abandon their culture of death, and instead concentrate on getting laid 72 times in this world, unless of course they would really prefer chilled or white raisins, according to their taste, in the next."
Author: Ibn Warraq
28. "We do not attract Russian money to Luxembourg with high interest rates."
Author: Jean Claude Juncker
29. "Other Luxen have healed in this amount of time, but to where the cut is completely sealed."Like Daemon needed help feeling special."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
30. "We would be hunted by the humans and the Luxen. And if they thought exposing the truth to the world was the most extreme thing I could do to protect those I loved, they hadn't seen anything yet. THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS TRULY CAPABLE OF."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
31. "Luc blinked innocently. That little fuck. "I gave you a piece of opal and a Luxen to nom-nom on."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
32. "You make me think before I act. You make me want to be a better person-Luxen-whatever."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
33. "I am wired by nature to love the same toys that the world loves. I start to fit in. I start to love what others love. I start to call earth "home." Before you know it, I am calling luxeries "needs" and using my money just the way unbelievers do. I begin to forget the war. I don't think much about people perishing. Missions and unreached people drop out of my mind. I stop dreaming about the triumphs of grace. I sink into a secular mind-set that looks first to what man can do, not what God can do. It is a terrible sickness. And I thank God for those who have forced me again and again toward a wartime mind-set."
Author: John Piper
34. "TODAY I THINK MY RELATIONSHIP WITH HELL IS OVER. It was hell, the ancient hell. Hell: I believed that if I loved V enough, we would love each other.All I know is that I've been returned to earth violently; I've a duty to myself to survive and to see what is. I have to deal with the truth, with nothing else.Did V's charity to me almost cause my death?I, starving, fed on the dream that V loved me and I lived a lie. So forgive me, You who knows that only truth matters.Yes—this dawn is at best difficult.The blood he let out of my skin, now dried and stiff, hurts me and there's nothing else in my life but memories of him. Mental war is constant.Nonetheless, this is the eve before the morning.May I accept the influxes of vigor and whatever real tenderness floats by in these barren waters. And when dawn comes, armed with my patience which burns, I shall see the cities of humans which are splendid.The imagination is nothing unless it is made actual."
Author: Kathy Acker
35. "I used to write exclusively with one particular Montblanc fountain pen, although lately I have had to use a roller-tip fountain pen, because I find it harder and harder to control the fine muscles of my right hand during prolonged periods of work. I buy boxes of Deluxe Uni-ball pens, use them until they start to drag, and then change."
Author: Mark Helprin
36. "My season 2 'Good Wife' wrap gift was this deluxe package of Mortal Kombat. I played it for, like, two weeks straight."
Author: Matt Czuchry
37. "Des créatures crasseuses et méchantes, brutales, parfaitement stupides, qui vivent dans le sang, la haine et leurs propres excréments. Ils s'agglutinent là, dans la nuit, comme de grosses mouches à merde autour de vitrines de luxe désertes."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
38. "Désormais, sous prétexte de laïcité, tous les discours se valent : l'erreur et la vérité, le faux et le vrai, le fantasque et le sérieux. Le mythe et la fable pèsent autant que la raison. La magie compte autant que la science. Le rêve autant que la réalité. Or tous les discours ne se valent pas : ceux de la névrose, de l'hystérie et du mysticisme procèdent d'un autre monde que celui du positiviste. Pas plus qu'on ne doit renvoyer dos à dos bourreau et victime, bien et mal, on ne doit tolérer la neutralité, la bienveillance affichée pour la totalité des régimes de discours, y compris ceux des pensées magiques. Faut-il rester neutre ? Doit-on rester neutre ? A-t-on encore les moyens de ce luxe ? Je ne crois pas..."
Author: Michel Onfray
39. "Quand elle est en grande toilette, on dirait l'édition de luxe d'un mauvais roman français."
Author: Oscar Wilde
40. "When he craved contact, he stopped in to visit the Cézannes and Monets at the Musée du Luxembourg, believing they had already done what he was striving for—distilling places and people and objects to their essential qualities."
Author: Paula McLain
41. "All brands, whether high-ticket luxury ones such as Cartier or Rolls-Royce or 'masstige' ones with luxe-y overtones but altogether more affordable, all want to grow. Even brands that may have started in a modestly niche design and lifestyle fashion can find themselves under pressure to go global or to sell out at the top."
Author: Peter York
42. "After joyfully working each morning, I would leave off around midday to challenge myself to a footrace. Speeding along the sunny paths of the Jardin du Luxembourg, ideas would breed like aphids in my head—for creative invention is easy and sublime when air cycles quickly through the lungs and the body is busy at noble tasks."
Author: Roman Payne
43. "Elles [Rosa Luxembourg, Marie Curie] démontrent avec éclat que ce n'est pas l'infériorité des femmes qui a déterminé leur insignifiance historique: c'est leur insignifiance historique qui les a vouées à l'infériorité."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
44. "Que les huttes puissent tenir rang de palais, les habitués des suites royales ne le comprendront jamais. Ils n'ont pas connu l'onglée avant le bain moussant. Le luxe n'est pas un état mais le passage d'une ligne, le seuil où, soudain, disparaît toute souffrance."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
45. "I have Vie Luxe candles in every room. In 2006 I spent the month of August in Sardinia, and the scent reminds me of the wonderful time we had."
Author: Tamara Mellon
46. "I published, privately, a collection of my serious poetry I had written over the years. I only published 50 copies, which I gave to friends, in a special deluxe edition. It was ridiculously expensive but I'm glad that I did it."
Author: Tom Glazer
47. "Street people use cardboard all the time, and bum alleys are just shanties or lean-tos, though. They're nothing like my house! Mine is deluxe! It's a big, thick, super sturdy refrigerator box that I found at an appliance store!"
Author: Wendelin Van Draanen
48. "This particular May morning begins with the appearance of a procession on the corner of Pancake and Rosa Luxemburg Streets. The procession is evidently religious: it consists of eight clerical personages, well known to the entire town. But instead of censers, the clerical personages are swinging brooms, which transfers the entire action from the plane of religion to the plane of revolution. These personages are now simply unproductive elements of society performing their labor duty for the benefit of the people. Instead of prayers, golden clouds of dust rise to the heavens. ("X")"
Author: Yevgeny Zamyatin
49. "Ever since he repented of religion and shaved off his clerical beard and mustache, he has had the constant feeling that he has taken off his trousers, and that his nose protrudes altogether indecently and must at all cost be covered. It's sheer torment! With one hand over his nose, the deacon knocks again and again. No one responds. And yet Martha is home; the gate is locked from within. And that means - what? It means that she is with someone else... The deacon punctuates the scene inwardly with the three dots we have graphically depicted just above, and, tripping over them at every second step, he proceeds to Rosa Luxemburg Street. ("X")"
Author: Yevgeny Zamyatin
50. "Hammacher Schlemmer is selling a shelter,worthy of Kubla Khan's Xanadu dome;Plushy and swanky, with posh hanky pankythat affluent Yankees can really callhome.Hammacher Schlemmer is selling a shelter,a push-button palace, fluorescent repose;Electric devices for facing a crisiswith frozen fruit ices and cinema shows.Hammacher Schlemmer is selling a shelterall chromium kitchens and rubber-tiled dorms;With waterproof portals to echo the chortlesof weatherproof mortals in hydrogen storms.What a great come-to-glory emporium!To enjoy a deluxe moratorium,Where nuclear heat can beguile the elitein a creme-de-la-creme crematorium."
