13. "I locate the ladies' room. Luckily, it's empty, no one to see the vacant-eyed girl, staring in the mirror. Staring at a stranger who doesn't care if she dies. Maybe she wants to die. Who would care if I died? My face is hollow-cheeked, spiced with sores--the places where I stab at bugs. Tiny bugs, almost invisible, but irritating. Usually they come out at night, when I'm lying there, begging for sleep. I've been meaning to tell the manager that the apartment needs to be sprayed. Sprayed. Steam cleaned. Deodorized. My hair looks odd too. It used to be darker. Shinier. Prettier. Can hair lose color when you're only eighteen? What if I go all the way gray? Will Trey still love me? Will anyone? That is, if I fool them all and don't die."
Author: Ellen Hopkins

Sub maiestuosul cer instelat, m-am simtit impacat. Ceva asemanator cu ceea ce spune Henry David Thoreau: "M-am dus in padure pentru ca voiam sa traiesc in meditatie, sa infrunt doar faptele esentiale ale vietii, sa vad daca puteam trai si sa invat ceea ce era de invatat; ca nu cumva sa descopar, apropiindu-ma de moarte, ca nu traisem cu adevarat"."

Author: Frances Hardinge
16. "I miss my father. I miss my grandfather. I miss my home. And I miss my mother. But the thing is, for almost three years, I managed not to miss any of them. And then I spent that one day with that one girl. One day ... It was like she gave me her whole self, and somehow as a result, I gave her more of myself than I even realized there was to give. But then she was gone. And only after I'd been filled up by her, by that day, did I understand how empty I really was."
Author: Gayle Forman
17. "When a man is happy enough to win the affections of a sweet girl, who can soothe his cares with crochet, and respond to all his most cherished ideas with beaded urn-rugs and chair-covers in German wool, he has, at least, a guarantee of domestic comfort, whatever trials may await him out of doors. What a resource it is under fatigue and irritation to have your drawing-room well supplied with small mats, which would always be ready if you ever wanted to set anything on them ! And what styptic for a bleeding heart can equal copious squares of crochet, which are useful for slipping down the moment you touch them ? How our fathers managed without crochet is the wonder; but I believe some small and feeble substitute existed in their time under the name of 'tatting'."
Author: George Elliott
18. "..."I won't go to Mrs Henne-Falcon's party. I swear on the Bible I won't." Now surely all would be well, he thought. God would not allow him to break so solemn an oath. He would show him a way.

He might cut himself or break his leg or really catch a bad cold. God would manage somehow."
Author: Graham Greene

Author: Henry David Thoreau
20. "Congradulations," he said, his voice dry. "You finally managed to find a woman as tragically noble as yourself. I didn't think one existed.""I'm not tragic."Kaldar held up his hand. "Spare me. Some children are born wearing a silk shirt; you were born wrapped in melancholy. When they slapped you to make you cry, you just sighed heavily and a single tear rolled from your eye." He dragged his finger from the corner of his left eye to his cheek. "Your first words were probably 'woe is me.'" "My first words were 'Kaldar, shut up!' because you talked too much. Still do."

Hedwig's cage, the Firebolt, and his rucksack slipped from beneath his knees —"No — HEDWIG!"The broomstick spun to earth, but he just managed to seize the strap of his rucksack and the top of the cage as the motorbike swung the right way up again. A second's relief, and then another burst of green light. The owl screeched and fell to the floor of the cage."No — NO!"The motorbike zoomed forward; Harry glimpsed hooded Death Eaters scattering as Hagrid blasted through their circle."Hedwig — Hedwig —"But the owl lay motionless and pathetic as a toy on the floor of her cage."

30. "Seriously? You've never done this for your friends before?" Trent shrugs. He manages to stay straight-faced for another three seconds before a sly smile betrays him. "Yeah, tons of times. But I liked letting you feel me up." A loud chorus of snickers and laughter erupts. They all knew he was playing me. How did they all know and I have no clue?

33. "Besides, those whose suffering is due to love are, as we say of certain invalids, their own physicians. As consolation can come to them only from the person who is the cause of their grief, and as their grief is an emanation from that person, it is there, in their grief itself, that they must in the end find a remedy: which it will disclose to them at a given moment, for as long as they turn it over in their minds this grief will continue to show them fresh aspects of the loved, the regretted creature, at one moment so intensely hateful that one has no longer the slightest desire to see her, since before finding enjoyment in her company one would have first to make her suffer, at another so pleasant that the pleasantness in which one has invested her one adds to her own stock of good qualities and finds in it a fresh reason for hope."

"Anyway, I know Lilith hates your guts, and she would have killed you yesterday if you hadn't managed to escape."He stopped and stepped closer, I didn't back away.

"Setiap hari ada senja, tapi tidak setiap senja adalah senja keemasan, dan setiap senja keemasan itu tidaklah selalu sama….Aku selalu membayangkan ada sebuah Negeri Senja, dimana langit selalu merah keemas-emasan dan setiap orang di negeri itu lalu lalang dalam siluet.Dalam bayanganku Negeri Senja itu tak pernah mengalami malam, tak pernah mengalami pagi dan tak pernah mengalami siang.Senja adalah abadi di Negeri Senja, matahari selalu dalam keadaan merah membara dan siap terbenam tapi tak pernah terbenam, sehingga seluruh dinding gedung, tembok gang, dan kaca-kaca jendela berkilat selalu kemerah-merahan.Orang-orang bisa terus-menerus berada di pantai selama-lamanya, dan orang-orang bisa terus-menerus minum kopi sambil memandang langit semburat yang keemas-emasan. Kebahagiaan terus-menerus bertebaran di Negeri Senja seolah-olah tidak akan pernah berubah lagi…."
Author: Seno Gumira Ajidarma
44. "A man is always a little shamefaced on his wedding day, like a fox caught in a baited trap, ensnared because his greed overcame his better judgment. The menfolk laughed at Charlie that spring day, and said he was caught for sure now. As the bride, I was praised and fussed over, as if I had won a prize or done something marvelous that no one ever did before, and I could not help feeling pleased and clever that I had managed to turn myself from an ordinary girl into a shining bride. Now I think it is a dirty lie. The man is the one who is winning the game that day, though they always pretend they are not, and the poor girl bride is led into a trap of hard work and harsh words, the ripping of childbirth and the drubbing of her man's fists. It is the end of being young, but no one tells her so. Instead they make over her, and tell her how lucky she is. I wonder do slaves get dressed up in finery on the day they are sold."
Author: Sharyn McCrumb

Author: Tere Liye

Author: Toba Beta
49. "Bosses should sanction the nap rather than expect workers to power on all day without repose. They might even find that workers' happiness - or what management types refer to as 'employee satisfaction results' - might improve."
Author: Tom Hodgkinson
50. "V'è uno spettacolo più grande del mare, ed è il cielo;v'è uno spettacolo più grande del cielo, ed è l'interno dell'anima.Far il poema della coscienza umana, foss'anco d'un sol uomo, del più infimo fra gli uomini, sarebbe come fondere tutte le epopee in un'epopea superiore e definitiva. La coscienza è il caos delle chimere, delle cupidigie e dei tentativi, la fornace dei sogni, l'antro delle idee di cui si ha vergogna; è il pandemonio dei sofismi, è il campo di battaglia delle passioni. Penetrate, in certe ore, attraverso la faccia livida d'un uomo che sta riflettendo, guardate in quell'anima, in quell'oscurità; sotto il silenzio esteriore, vi sono combattimenti di giganti come in Omero, mischie di dragoni ed idre e nugoli di fantasmi, come in Milton, visioni ultraterrene come in Dante. Oh, qual abisso è mai quest'infinito che ogni uomo porta in sé e col quale confronta disperatamente la volontà del cervello e gli atti della vita!"
Author: Victor Hugo

Today's Quote

Holy men? Holy cabbages! Holy bean-pods! What do they do but live and suck in sustenance and grow fat? If that be holiness, I could show you hogs in this forest who are fit to head the calendar. Think you it was for such a life that this good arm was fixed upon my shoulder, or that head placed upon your neck? There is work in the world, man, and it is not by hiding behind stone walls that we shall do it."
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
