2. "You're like a lighthouse shining beside the sea of humanity, motionless: all you can see is your own reflection in the water. You're alone, so you think it's a vast, magnificent panorama. You haven't sounded the depths. You simply believe in the beauty of God's creation. But I have spent all this time in the water, diving deep into the howling ocean of life, deeper than anyone. While you were admiring the surface, I saw the shipwrecks, the drowned bodies, the monsters of the deep"
Author: Alfred De Musset

4. "KELIMELERKelimelere dikkat et,Özellikle mucizevi olanlara.Mucizevi olanlar için en iyisini yapariz, Bazen böcek sürüsü gibi toplanirlarSokmazlar ama bir öpücük birakirlar.Parmaklar kadar iyi olabilirler.Oturdugun kaya kadar güvenilir...Ayni zamanda hem papatyalar hem de yaralar gibi...Sözcüklere asigim, evet.Tavandan sarkan kugular onlar,Kucagimda duran alti kutsal portakal,Agaçlar onlar, yazin bacaklari, Ve günes, onun tutkulu yüzü. Genellikle yanilttilar beni.Söylemek istedigim çok sey vardi,Çok fazla hikaye, görüntü, atasözü ve saire...Ama kelimeler yeterince iyi degil.Yanlis olanlari öptü beni. Bazen bir kartal gibi uçarimAma bir çalikusunun kanatlariyla. Yine de dikkat etmeye çalisirimVe onlara nazik davranmaya. Kelimeler ve yumurtalar dikkatle tasinmalidir.Bir kere kirildilar mi, tamiri imkansizdir."
Author: Anne Sexton
5. "Parmaklarimi birlestirip uçlarina tahta cetvelle vurmayi ‘akil eden' ögretmenler, amirinin önünde ellerimi arkada kavusturdugum için ‘Amirin karsisinda öyle durulmaz!' diye kulagima tislayarak koluma asilan memur ve o amir; tuttugum takimi yenen takimlarin oyunculari, taraftarlari, malzemecileri; sevgimi karsiliksiz birakan bütün kadinlar! Alkislayin beni. Ve sen Nesteren, asil sen alkisla, bir tek sen alkisla!"

Author: Bauvard

"Hello, Halberstam," Owen says, walking by.Hello, Owen," I say, admiring the way he's styled and slicked back his hair, with a part so even and sharp it... devastates me and I make a mental note to ask him where he purchases his hair-care products, which kind of mousse he uses, my final guesses after mulling over the possibilities being Ten-X."

Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
9. "She had been struck by the figure of a woman's back in a mirror. She stopped and looked. The dress the figure wore was the color called ashes of roses, and Ada stood, held in place by a sharp stitch of envy or th woman's dress and the fine shape of her back and her thick dark hair and the sense of assurance she seemed to evidence in her very posture.Then Ada took a step forward, and the other woman did too, and Ada realized that it was herself she was admiring, the mirror having caught the reflection of an opposite mirror on the wall behind her. The light of the lamps and the tint of the mirrors had conspired to shift colors, bleaching mauve to rose. She climbed the steps to her room and prepared for bed, but she slept poorly that night, for the music went on until dawn. As she lay awake she thought how odd it had felt to win her own endorsement."

This gradual anger over one humiliation after another may be hard for men to understand and even women who have not had the need to seek redress from perpetrators and who have been allowed to grow as I did in my youth unhindered, protected from male dominated themes like the military."47 (47 - paraphrased from Gurko, Miriram, The Ladies of Seneca Falls; the Birth of the Women's Rights Movement, 1974."

In very bad cases the patient expects people to watch him admiringly and wave to him with friendly smiles."
Author: George Mikes

27. "Passiamo l'esistenza alla ricerca di una soluzione, di quacosa che ci consoli, che ci dia felicità e scacci tutti i mali. Alcuni intraprendono una strada lunga e ardua, e magari non trovano niente, a parte l'abbozzo di uno scopo, di una liberazione, o una forma di appagamento nella ricerca stessa, quanto a noi, ammiriamo nella loro perseveranza, ma ci è già abbastanza difficile accontentarci di esistere e prendiamo l'elisir invece di cercare, e continuiamo a chiederci qual è la via più breve per la felicità, e troviamo la risposta in Dio, nella scienza, nella grappa, nell'elisir che viene dalla Cina."

28. "Mornings, out in the garden, she would, at times, read aloud from one of her many overdue library books. Dew as radiant as angel spit glittered on the petals of Jack's roses. Jack was quite the gardener. Miriam thought she knew why her particularly favored roses. The inside of a rose does not at all correspond with its exterior beauty. If one tears off all the petals of the corolla, all that remains is a sordid-looking tuft. Roses would be right up Jack's alley, all right."Here's something for you, Jack," Miriam said. You'll appreciate this. Beckett describes tears as 'liquified brain.'"God, Miriam," Jack said. "Why are you sharing that with me? Look at this day, it's a beautiful day! Stop pumping out the cesspit! Leave the cesspit alone!"
Author: Joy Williams

31. "Levin had been married three months. He was happy, but not at all in the way he had expected to be. At every step he found his former dreams disappointed, and new, unexpected surprises of happiness. He was happy; but on entering upon family life he saw at every step that it was utterly different from what he had imagined. At every step he experienced what a man would experience who, after admiring the smooth, happy course of a little boat on a lake, should get himself into that little boat. He saw that it was not all sitting still, floating smoothly; that one had to think too, not for an instant to forget where one was floating; and that there was water under one, and that one must row; and that his unaccustomed hands would be sore; and that it was only to look at it that was easy; but that doing it, though very delightful, was very difficult."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
32. "It was then Jessica realized he wasn't using his left hand at all, and that he held the arm oddly, as though something were wrong with it. There shouldn't be except for a minor bullet wound. She'd aimed carefully, and she was an excellent markswoman. Not to mention he was a very large target.He looked her way then, and caught her staring. "Admiring your handiwork, are you? I daresay you'd like a better look. Regrettably, there's nothing to see. There's nothing wrong with it, according to the quacks. Except that it doesn't work. Still, I count myself fortunate, Miss Trent, that you didn't aim a ways lower. I'm merely disarmed, not dismanned. But I have no doubt that Herriard here will see to the emasculation."
Author: Loretta Chase
33. "Why do you haunt me? You, like a tattoo on my tongue, like the bay leaf at the bottom of every pan. You who sprawled out beside me and sang my horoscope to a Schubert symphony, something about travel and money again, and we lay there, both of our breaths bad, both of our underwear dangling elastic, and then you turned toward me with a gaze like two matches, putting the horoscope aside, you traced my buried ribs with your index finger, lingered at my collarbone, admiring it as one might a flying buttress, murmuring: Nice clavicle. And me, too new at it and scared, not knowing what to say, whispering: You should see my ten-speed."
Author: Lorrie Moore
34. "Bai Shen did not move. He gazed down at Miri, and she could still see the fear, but this time it was mixed with guilt and deep raging sorrow that she could only guess had less to do with her, and everything to do with setting one's heart on a plan that had proven itself to be The Dumbest Move Alive."

38. "He tells my parents how I took every class he taught. He tells them, "You have a special boy here." Embarrassed, I look at my feet. Before we leave, I hand my professor a present, a tan briefcase with his initials on the front. I bought this the day before at a shopping mall. I didn't want to forget him. Maybe I didn't want him to forget me."Mitch, you are one of the good ones," he says, admiring the briefcase. Then he hugs me. I feel his thin arms around my back. I am taller than he is, and when he holds me, I feel awkward, older, as if I were the parent and he were the child.He asks if I will stay in touch, and without hesitation I say, "Of course." When he steps back, I see that he is crying."
Author: Mitch Albom
39. "You, Catwin, no longer exist. You no longer have a fate of your own, a will of your own, or indeed a soul of your own. Henceforth, you and Miriel are to be as one, she the light, and you the shadow. You are to cease thinking of yourself as other from my niece - you are to be her shadow, as Temar is mine. You will go where she goes, you will watch instead of being watched, you will hear instead of being heard. Do you understand me?" - Eral Celys, Duke of Voltur"
Author: Moira Katson
40. "Miriam will never know what kind of dog attacked her, will imagine a Doberman or a German shepherd with snarling, angry teeth despite the fact she bears neither bite marks nor broken skin. It will never cross her mind that the dog was a beagle and that she was knocked over from a surprise more than force. The children of the house she fled will use the incident to convince their parents to keep the dog, which had been on the verge of being given away for its propensity to shit at the slightest hint of thunder it having been sequestered in the garage that night because of a stormy forecast. The family will never know what manner of burglar their fog deflected, will imagine a scruffy, heavy-set man with scars and a limp groping the family jewelery. It will never cross their minds that their intruder was am upper middle-class wife and mother of two who would have had eyes only for their Chinese teakettle."
Author: Myla Goldberg
41. "They WERE walking alongside the road, they WERE hit by a car, and now they ARE dead. It doesn't work. Are is present tense. Dead is -- well, dead is past, isn't it? Present tense modifying past; being modifying non-being. Language, in this instance" -- and here Miriam makes a garbled noise in her throat-- "fails."
Author: Myla Goldberg
42. "Can you spell everything?" asked Milo admiringly."Just about," replied the bee with a hint of pride in his voice. "You see, years ago I was just an ordinary bee minding my own business, smelling flowers all day, and occasionally picking up part-time work in people's bonnets. Then one day I realized that I'd never amount to anything without an education and, being naturally adept at spelling, I decided that—"

Everyone stayed up all night, sang, told stories, watched the stars. It must have been great craic." "How do you know this stuff?" she asked, admiringly. "I' a bloody genius."
