So where the hell is she?"Having sex," she repeats. She slides onto the cushion. "I met a guy and we've been having nonstop sex for the last two days. And the worst thing about it? I couldn't poop. I honestly could not poop until he finally left this morning.""He's not the best-looking guy. But I told myself that looks aren't everything. And he really is smart. Which can be a turn-on. I've always said I'd rather be with a smart, ugly guy than a goodlooking dumb guy. Because what are you going to talk about with a dumb guy?""So then," Miranda continues, "we're walking through the Mews -- that cute little cobblestoned street -- and suddenly he pushes me up against the wall and starts making out with me!""I hardly know him," she giggles, "but so what?

Author: Candace Bushnell
16. "I really liked it." She covers her mouth in horror."If I like sex, do you think it means I can't be a feminist?""No." I shake my head. "Because being a feminist -- I think it means being in charge of your sexuality. You decide who you want to have sex with. It means not trading your sexuality for… other things.""Like marrying some gross guy who you're not in love with just so you can have a nice house with a picket fence.""Or marrying a rich old geezer. Or a guy who expects you to cook him dinner every night and take care of the children," I say, thinking of Samantha."Or a guy who makes you have sex with him whenever he wants, even if you don't," Miranda concludes.We look at each other in triumph, as if we've finally solved one of the world's great problems."

If I hear him say the word love, I don't know what I'll do. I still have my gun. Maybe one day I can forgive him, but all chance of that goes out the window if he claims he did it for love. If you love someone, the idea is respect them enough to trust them. Not to take away their freedom. Their life."

He grabbed a corner of the pillow as she whacked him again with it. "Stop it!" "You're too serious, Winterley!" She reached for another pillow. "I will beat you until you smile!" He ducked out of his chair with a rakish grin as she swung at him, then tackled her flat on the soft bed, both of them laughing. "You are . . . impossible," he chided with a gentle sigh as he braced his elbows on either side of her head. He traced her cheekbones with the pads of his thumbs. "Difficult, but not impossible." She wrapped her arms around him, relishing the weight of him atop her, the smoothness of his bare chest against her bodice. "It all depends on who's trying." "That sounded distinctly like an invitation," he murmured."

Sometimes there isn't a Prospero to make everything fine again. And sometimes the quality of mercy is strained."
Author: Gary D. Schmidt

"Yes, my mother is quite taken with you now that you're assisting us financially. I'm sure she'll fawn over you all evening."He downed the remainder of his wine in one swig.

As far as I could tell, the office was divided on whether she was permanently on the Atkins diet or just lucky enough to have a superhuman metabolism, the result of some pretty fantastic genes. Either way, she thought nothing of devouring the fattiest, the most sickeningly unhealthy foods--even though the rest of us weren't exactly afforded the same luxury."
Author: Lauren Weisberger

It never works."

49. "Desiree the child bride, and her sister Miranda, had gone grave-robbing for a wedding gown. In the north end of the cemetery, among the palatial mausoleums with their broken windows of stained glass where the ivy crept in, was the resting place of a young woman who'd been murdered at the altar while reciting her marital vows. The decaying tombstone, among the cemetery's most envied, was a limestone bride in despair, shoulders as slumped as a mule's, a bouquet of lilies strewn at her feet. Though her murder, by her groom's jealous mother, had been long in the past, everyone knew that her father had had her buried in her gown of lace and silk."
Author: Timothy Schaffert

All I know is that compared to her, Shelly and Miranda seemed so...ordinary."
