Lo toccò leggermente con le dita e lasciò una traccia di pelledoca sulla pelle. Come un gesso morbido sulla lavagna. Come la brezza in una risaia. Come le scie dei jet in un cielo celeste da chiesa. Lui le prese il viso tra le mani e lo attirò verso il suo. Chiuse gli occhi e le annusò la pelle. Ammu rise.Sì, Margaret, pensò. Lo facciamo anche fra noi.Baciò gli occhi chiusi di Velutha e si alzò. Velutha, con la schiena appoggiata al mangostano, la guardò andar via. Aveva una rosa secca tra i capelli.Si girò per dirlo un'altra volta: "Naaley".Domani."

I want to walk on a beach with you, dragging a big stick behind us, making a message in the sand that we try to believe an airplane will really see. I want to kiss saltwater from your lips. I want us to listen to music with our eyes closed; I want to read musty books while lying next to you - books about fascinating things like mummies and eccentric artists and old shipwrecks in the Pacific. I want to have picnics on our bed and crawl into cotton sheets that smell like summer because we left the windows open when we were gone. I want to wake in the night with you and marvel at the stars and try to find the moon through the trees. I want all the sweet things in life. But only by your side."
Author: Deb Caletti
17. "E sì, mi manca ancora. Per quanto incomprensibile possa essere, sento ancora la sua mancanza. La sento soprattutto in questo tipo di situazione, quando esco, quando mi siedo in un ristorante con qualcuno, quando viene un po' di sole dopo che ha piovuto, quando la gente intorno parla del più e del meno, quando la normalità incalza. E' soprattutto in quei momenti che mi domando cosa ci faccio lì. Perché rimango. Perché non me ne vado. E perché quello che mangio non sa di niente. E perché delle cose che mi dicono gli amici, cose per le quali dovrei provare un qualche interesse, non m'importi assolutamente nulla. E risponda per pura cortesia, sperando che se la bevano e pensando che se pure non se la bevono fa lo stesso. E perché quando mi sembra di cominciare a rilassarmi, finalmente, vengo subito assalito dal solito stormo di piccoli ricordi felici che vuole portarmi via da dove sto. E perché mi sembra di aver lasciato la vita da qualche parte. Ma dove?Fanculo, va'."
Author: Diego De Silva
18. "I knew he was unreliable, but he was fun to be with. He was a child's ideal companion, full of surprises and happy animal energy. He enjoyed food and drink. He liked to try new things. He brought home coconuts, papayas, mangoes, and urged them on our reluctant conservative selves. On Sundays he liked to discover new places, take us on endless bus or trolley rides to some new park or beach he knew about. He always counseled daring, in whatever situation, the courage to test the unknown, an instruction that was thematically in opposition to my mother's."
Author: E.L. Doctorow

You could have come home to a very gory scene. The press would have had a field day ... Gay Houseboy In Mango Tragedy. Bears arrested for leaving cub unattended for seven, almost eight whole days with an armed and dangerous killer mango roaming loose about the house."

22. "Hai presente quelle scatole di latta con i biscotti assortiti? Ci sono sempre quelli che ti piacciono e quelli che no. Quando cominci a prendere subito tutti quelli buoni, poi rimangono solo quelli che non ti piacciono. È quello che penso sempre io nei momenti di crisi. Meglio che mi tolgo questi cattivi di mezzo, poi tutto andrà bene. Perciò la vita è una scatola di biscotti."
Author: Haruki Murakami
23. "But he, Siddhartha, was not a source of joy for himself, he found no delight in himself. Walking the rosy paths of the fig tree garden, sitting in the bluish shade of the grove of contemplation, washing his limbs daily in the bath of repentance, sacrificing in the dim shade of the mango forest, his gestures of perfect decency, everyone's love and joy, he still lacked all joy in his heart. Dreams and restless thoughts came into his mind, flowing from the water of the river, sparkling from the stars of the night, melting from the beams of the sun, dreams came to him and a restlessness of the soul, fuming from the sacrifices, breathing forth from the verses of the Rig-Veda, being infused into him, drop by drop, from the teachings of the old Brahmans."
Author: Hermann Hesse

You watch for her smile and notice that it pushes hercheeks up into two mango shapes, why should this shape be sopleaSing, I don't know. Then one evening she puts kajal round her eyesand brushes her hair, looks quite transformed, and suddenly SonaliBendre is not so desirable as this one who's been under your nose forso long, who's all dolled up to go somewhere you're not going, cannever go."
Author: Indra Sinha

Author: Jean Kwok
27. "Ma, quando andavo ad allenarmi, passavo per le strade correndo e nessuno poteva immaginare il mondo di parole che portavo con me. Correre è stare assolutamente soli. Lo so da sempre: nella solitudine mi è impossibile sfuggire a me stesso. Subito dopo i primi passi intorno a me si innalzano mura nere. inoffensivo, il mondo si allontana. Mentre corro, rimango fermo dentro di me, e aspetto. Sono finalmente alla mia mercé. All'inizio, avevo tredici anni e correvo perché avevo trovato il silenzio di una pace che ritenevo non appartenermi. Non sapevo ancora che era soltanto il riflesso della mia stessa pace. poi, quando la vita si complicò, era troppo tardi per riuscire a fermarsi. Correre faceva parte di me come il mio nome. Fu allora che imparai a correre contro le parole dentro di me, nello stesso modo in cui imparai a correre contro il vento."
Author: José Luís Peixoto
28. "Amo gli occhi di una donna, la sua pelle, la sua passione, tutto. Parlo tanto, fin troppo, ma ci sono momenti che rimango in silenzio ad ascoltarmi. E' in quei momenti che fabbrico i miei pensieri più veri, mentre cammino per le strade, osservando la gente che passa, ascoltando i discorsi, a volte assurdi, di alcune persone o assaporando il sole che mi scalda dentro. Amo ridere, giocare. Amo le cose belle, le belle storie che dicono qualcosa, mi piace tutto ciò che fa palpitare il cuore. E' bello aver la pelle d'oca, significa che stai vivendo."
Author: José Saramago
29. "You ain't old yet but when you get old, all the women in the village start to look down on you when they find out you want to do something other than sweep the kitchen or cut up vegetables. Had this big starch mango tree when I was small. Anytime I set myself to climb it, there was always a woman passing by to yell at me and tell me to get down. Asked me why I leaving my poor mother to do all the housework. I never got to the top. It was like God was always watching, ready to send another hag to tell me down. Then, one day, they cut down the tree."
Author: K. Jared Hosein
30. "Yes, I'd still have Sonia. And Zia. And so many other things that Karim no longer had. I'd still have the Arabian Sea and Sindhri mangoes, and crabbing with Captain Saleem, who had the most popular boat of all because his business card promoted ‘Garunteed no cockroach', and, yes, there's still be those bottles of creamy, flavored milk from Rahat Milk Corner and drives to the airport for coffee and warm sand at the beach and Thai soup at Yuan Tung; yes, Burns Road nihari; yes, student biryani; oh, yes, yes, yes, and all that, and all that again. So why complain? Why contemplate words like ‘longing'?"

Nowhere on the building, however, was there a poster advertising help, which is really what the Baudelaires needed."
Author: Lemony Snicket
35. "Ma quando di un lontano passato non rimane più nulla, dopo la morte delle creature, dopo la distruzione delle cose, soli e più fragili ma più vivaci, più immateriali, più persistenti, più fedeli, l'odore e il sapore permangono ancora a lungo, come anime, a ricordare, ad attendere, a sperare, sulla rovina di tutto, a sorreggere senza tremare - loro, goccioline quasi impalpabili - l'immenso edificio del ricordo."
Author: Marcel Proust
36. "Homo sapiens is one of the few species on earth that care if they're seen having sex. The impala is unconcerned. The dingo roundly flaunts it. A masturbating chimpanzee will stare straight at you. To any creature other than you and I and 6 billion other privacy-needing H. sapiens, sex is like peeling a mango or scratching your ear. It's just something you do sometimes."
Author: Mary Roach
37. "I walk in the direction she tells me. I feel my pores opening, sweat and heat radiating out of my body. A firefly dances in the distance, leaving tracers, and if I turn my head from side to side, I see long yellow-green streaks that cut through my vision and burn in front of my retinas even after the light that sparked them has gone.I emerge from the mango grove into a field. In the distance unseen trucks pass with a sound like the ocean licking the sand. A tracery of darkness curls into a starry sky, a solitary pipal tree making itself known by an absence of light, like a flame caught in a photographer's negative, frozen, calling me."
Author: Mohsin Hamid

Author: Monica Ali
40. "Here is an oral tradition, legends passed from mouth to mouth, a communal myth created invariably at the base of the mango tree in the evening's profound darkness, in which only the trembling voices of old men resound, because the women and children are silent, raptly listening. That is what the evening hour is so important: it is the time when the community contemplates what it is and whence it came."

And the way Mango ran beside her, keeping her company. But most of all she liked the way the steady pace untangled her thoughts."

My thighs and legs were big and powerful, kicking Vanna White and Cindy Crawford to the curb."

They were going to St. Mango's after they recovered cause they were pedofiles and you can't have those fucking pervs teaching in a school with lots of hot gurlz. Dumbledore had constipated the cideo camera they took of me naked. I put up my middle finger at them."
Author: Tara Gilesbie
47. "Mee and Ow sat in the shade of a mango tree and were doing their make-up. Both of them wore gloves that reached all the way up to their elbows, to keep the tropical sun off their skins.

Author: Tom Vater
48. "One time I listened to Farmer give a talk on HIV to a class at the Harvard School of Public Health, and in the midst of reciting data, he mentioned the Haitian phrase "looking for life, destroying life," Then he explained, "It's an expression Haitians use if a poor woman selling mangoes falls off a truck and dies." I felt as if for that moment I could see a little way into his mind, It seemed like a place of hyperconnectivity, At moments like that, I thought that what he wanted was to erase both time and geography, connecting all parts of his life and tying them instrumentally to a world in which he saw intimate, inescapable connections between the gleaming corporate offices of Paris and New York and a legless man lying on the mud floor of a hut in the remotest part of remote Haiti. Of all the world's errors, he seemed to feel, the most fundamental was the "erasing" of people, the "hiding away" of suffering. "My big struggle is how people can not care, erase, not remember."
Author: Tracy Kidder
