Author: Adam Nevill
2. "Human beings consider themselves satisfied only compared to some other condition. A man who has owned nothing but a bicycle all of his life feels suddenly wealthy the moment he buys an automobile...But this happy sensation wears off. After a while the car becomes just another thing that he owns. Moreover, when his neighbor next door buys two cars, in an instant our man feels wretchedly poor and deprived."
Author: Alan Lightman
3. "Ce vernis ne vaut rien. Mais pour en revenir à la lune, c'était pendant une belle nuit d'août. (Hélicon se détourneavec dépit et se tait, immobile.) Elle a fait quelques façons. J'étais déjà couché. Elle était d'abord toute sanglante, au-dessus de l'horizon. Puis elle a commencé à monter, de plus en plus légère, avec une rapidité croissante. Plus elle mon-tait, plus elle devenait claire. Elle est devenue comme un lac d'eau laiteuse au milieu de cette nuit pleine de froissements d'étoiles. Elle est arrivée alors dans la chaleur, douce, légè-re et nue. Elle a franchi le seuil de la chambre et avec sa lenteur sûre, est arrivée jusqu'à mon lit, s'y est coulée et m'a inondé de ses sourires et de son éclat. - Décidément, ce vernis ne vaut rien. Mais tu vois, Hélicon, je puis dire sans me vanter que je l'ai eue."
Author: Albert Camus
4. "Who is that woman? How did she find us?""She's ex-Mafia." I inhale, like I just admitted I'm ex-Mafia or something. It doesn't help that Mom glares at me as if I just confessed it, too."Seriously, ex-Mafia? Like, the Mafia?"I nod."Poseidon's beard," she mutters.I'm pretty sure I won't get used to my mom using fishy cuss words anytime soon."Try to lose her.""It's a long straight road with hardly any turns.""Well, speed up!" She pops open the glove compartment. Then pulls out a freaking gun."Mom-""Don't start. It's just to scare her. Usually all you have to do is show someone that you have a gun and that you're not going to take any crap-""Did you hear what I said? She's ex-Mob. Her gun probably eats guns like that for breakfast."
Author: Anna Banks
5. "In the days before automobiles, people in horse-drawn wagons used to sleep if they were tired. They didn't worry about getting lost, because the horse knew the way home. Your heart knows the way to your gifts. You can trust it to take you to them."
Author: Barbara Sher
6. "An' here I sit so patiently?Waiting to find out what price?You have to pay to get out of?Going through all these things twice?Oh, Mama, can this really be the end?To be stuck inside of Mobile?With the Memphis blues again-Bob Dylan, "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again" (1966)"
Author: Bob Dylan
7. "The change of character brought about by the uprush of collective forces is amazing. A gentle and reasonable being can be transformed into a maniac or a savage beast. One is always inclined to lay the blame on external circumstances, but nothing could explode in us if it had not been there. As a matter of fact, we are constantly living on the edge of a volcano, and there is, so far as we know, no way of protecting ourselves from a possible outburst that will destroy everybody within reach. It is certainly a good thing to preach reason and common sense, but what if you have a lunatic asylum for an audience or a crowd in a collective frenzy? There is not much difference between them because the madman and the mob are both moved by impersonal, overwhelming forces."
Author: C.G. Jung
8. "We at BMW do not build cars as consumer objects, just to drive from A to B. We build mobile works of art."
Author: Chris Bangle
9. "The traveling salesmen fed me pills that made the lining of my veins feel scraped out, my jaw ached... I knew every raindrop by its name, I sensed everything before it happened. Like I knew a certain oldsmobile would stop even before it slowed, and by the sweet voices of the family inside, I knew we'd have an accident in the rain. I didn't care. They said they'd take me all the way."
Author: Denis Johnson
10. "Not having to own a car has made me realize what a waste of time the automobile is."
Author: Diane Johnson
11. "Io non mento a me stesso per ingannarmi. Mento a me stesso per crederci. So come mi sento e perché. Conosco ogni micromovimento, avvisaglia, sintomo o rumore del mobbing dell'infelicità. Quello smarrimento così caratteristico, che rende l'aria disgustosamente dolciastra, come di pesche andate a male. Quella solitudine definitiva. Quella svalutazione immediata di tutto. Di me stesso, soprattutto."
Author: Diego De Silva
12. "Many historians have noted an interesting phenomenon in American life in the years immediately after a war. In the councils of government fierce partisanship replaces the necessary political coalitions of wartime. IN the great arena of social relations -- business, labour, the community -- violence rises, fear and recrimination dominate public discussion, passion prevails over reason. Many historians have noted this phenomenon. It is attributed to the continuance beyond the end of the war of the war hysteria. Unfortunately, the necessary emotional fever for fighting a war cannot be turned off like a water tap. Enemies must continue to be found. The mind and heart cannot be demobilised as quickly as the platoon. On the contrary, like a fiery furnace at white heat, it takes a considerable time to cool."
Author: E.L. Doctorow
13. "Lord Macon deposited his wife into a chair and then knelt next to her, clutching one of her hands. "Tell me truthfully - how are you feeling?"Alexia took a breath. "Truthfully? I sometimes wonder if I, like Madame Lefoux, should affect masculine dress.""Gracious me, why?""You mean aside from the issue of greater mobility?""My love, I don't think that's currently the result of your clothing.""Indeed, I mean after the baby.""I still don't see why should want to.""Oh no? I dare you to spend a week in a corset, long skirts and a bustle.""How do you know I haven't?"
Author: Gail Carriger
14. "It wasn't his job to keep tabs on mob princesses, but this one was sort of a hobby."
Author: Genevieve Dewey
15. "I will have no man in my boat," said Starbuck, "who is not afraid of a whale." By this, he seemed to mean, not only that the most reliable and useful courage was that which arises from the fair estimation of the encountered peril, but that an utterly fearless man is a far more dangerous comrade than a coward. (moby dick chap 26 p112)"
Author: Herman Melville
16. "With the buck before me suspended in immobility, there seems to be time for all things, time even to turn my gaze inward and see what it is that has robbed the hunt of its savour: the sense that this has become no longer a morning's hunting but an occasion on which either the proud ram bleeds to death on the ice or the old hunter misses his aim; that for the duration of this frozen moment the stars are locked in a configuration in which events are not themselves but stand for other things."
Author: J.M. Coetzee
17. "If you tell anyone what I just told you, I'll call the Mob. I know some of them, you know." "Bullshit." I shrugged. "Believe what you want." Finch eyed me suspiciously, and then smiled. "You are officially the coolest person I know." "That's sad, Finch. You should get out more," I said, stopping at the cafeteria entrance."
Author: Jamie McGuire
18. "Mobs and dictators were made for each other, and when mobs appear, dictators will soon flourish."
Author: Jaron Lanier
19. "These people go on to tell us that mobile phones will cook our children's ears, that long-haul flights will fill our legs with thrombosis and that meat is murder. They want an end to all deaths – and it doesn't stop there. They don't even see why anyone should have to suffer from a spot of light bruising. Every week, as we filmed my television chat show, food would be spilt on the floor, and every week the recording would have to be stopped so it could be swept away. ‘What would happen,' said the man from health and safety, ‘if a cameraman were to slip over?' ‘Well,' I would reply, ‘he'd probably have to stand up again."
Author: Jeremy Clarkson
20. "There was a low growling sound and the Munstermobile came gliding up out of the parking garage, dripping water from its gleaming surface like some lantern-eyed leviathan rising from the depths. There were still a few dents and dings in it, but the broken glass had all been replaced, and the engine sounded fine.Okay, I'm not like a car fanatic or anything - but the guitar riff from "Bad to the Bone" started playing in my head."
Author: Jim Butcher
21. "Here you play in the street, little chicken. Some day an automobile will run over you; and if it kills you, that will be the best thing that can happen. It may only break your leg or your wing. Then all of your life you will drag along in misery. Life is too hard for you, little bird."
Author: John Steinbeck
22. "Well, I did a little research, and I found out that boxers are better for the balls and sperm counts.""I see," she replied, fighting the flush that was creeping across her cheeks."Yeah, the article says it seems to help the swimmers with their mobility, and we want Olympic Gold this time around."
Author: Katie Ashley
23. "Besides all those whaling details, Moby Dick is about someone who's looking for something so huge, something they've wanted all their life, yet they know when they find it, it will kill them."
Author: Laurie Anderson
24. "For although we know that the years pass, that youth gives way to old age, that fortunes and thrones crumble (even the most solid among them) and that fame is transitory, the manner in which—by means of a sort of snapshot—we take cognisance of this moving universe whirled along by Time, has the contrary effect of immobilising it."
Author: Marcel Proust
25. "Are you close to your family?'I considered it. 'Close' was one way of putting it. 'We're close,' I said cautiously. 'But we're very mean to each other. This morning I told my mum that if she didn't stop acting old I was going to lobby for a law on euthanasia, so a bus would come round every Monday morning and take away all the old people who complained that they couldn't hear the telly or see the buttons on their mobile phone or that they had a pain in their hip, and put a bullet in their heads. But we're close."
Author: Marian Keyes
26. "As any student of literature knows, the books that last are often not the books that are most popular when they are written. Both 'Moby Dick' and 'The Great Gatsby' were complete failures, critically and commercially, when they first appeared."
Author: Michael Cunningham
27. "Sensuality is the total mobilization of the senses: an individual observes his partner intently, straining to catch every sound."
Author: Milan Kundera
28. "Fat" is a small word which belies its size in the girth of its connotations. Fat implies a certain ungainliness, an inefficiency, a sense of immobility, a lack of industry, an unpleasant, unaesthetic quality; unmotivated, unloved, unnatural, unusual, uninspired, unhappy, unlikely to go places or to fit, under the ground with a heart attack at fifty-five. In short, fat somewhat paradoxically involves the lack of many attributes which, you must concede, are generally held to be good."
Author: Mohsin Hamid
29. "Non-democratic regimes always need to mobilize their people against external enemies in order to maintain internal stability."
Author: Natan Sharansky
30. "We may never become accustomed to untrue and unjust criticism of us but we ought not to be immobilized by it."
Author: Neal A. Maxwell
31. "The Fatigues all talk like that. Big-Picture-speak, Risa calls it. Seeing the whole, and none of the parts. It's not just in their speech but in their eyes as well.When they look at Risa, she can tell they don't really see her. They seem to see the mob of Unwinds more as a concept rather than a collection of anxious kids, and so they miss all the subtle social tremors that shake things just as powerfully as the jets shake the roof."
Author: Neal Shusterman
32. "For every summons to a shining city on the hill or a promise of change we can believe in, we are presented with hundreds of examples of mudslinging and appeals to mob mentality. Rudeness is recast as honesty, greed is presented as ambition, and lines in the sand blur and move."
Author: Nikki Stern
33. "Now and then the fantastic shadows of birds in flight flitted across the long tussore-silk curtains that were stretched in front of the huge window, producing a kind of momentary Japanese effect, and making him think of those pallid, jade-faced painters of Tokyo who, through the medium of an art that is necessarily immobile, seek to convey the sense of swiftness and motion."
Author: Oscar Wilde
34. "For the Age has itself become vulgar, and most people have no idea to what extent they are themselves tainted. The bad manners of all parliaments, the general tendency to connive at a rather shady business transaction if it promises to bring in money without work, jazz and Negro dances as the spiritual outlet in all circles of society, women painted like prostitutes, the efforts of writers to win popularity by ridiculing in their novels and plays the correctness of well-bred people, and the bad taste shown even by the nobility and old princely families in throwing off every kind of social restraint and time-honoured custom: all of these go to prove that it is now the vulgar mob that gives the tone."
Author: Oswald Spengler
35. "Into the breach, then. Against mobs of middle-aged moms and frightening harridans we shall prevail."She nodded sharply, raising an invisible sword. "And damned be he—she—who cries, ‘Hold, enough!'""Misquote Shakespeare in front of Samuel, I dare you," I told her, and she laughed."
Author: Patricia Briggs
36. "Square is turning informal, cash transactions, like you would do with a taco truck, into card swipes. Stripe is more for the Internet, it's focused on the kinds of transactions that weren't possible years ago. We think about how you would buy things from a mobile phone, crowd-funding, how should that work."
Author: Patrick Collison
37. "Other families bought automobiles; we had a horse-headed hitching post in front of our house and drove horses."
Author: Paul Engle
38. "A free economy and strong communities honor the dignity of every person, rewarding effort with justice, promoting upward mobility, and building solidarity among citizens."
Author: Paul Ryan
39. "A great number of elements in the characters' lives, both psychic and factual, are not communicated to us. […] These characters, I believe, enjoy a much greater autonomy than we usually think, and are able to take initiatives unknown both to the writer and the reader. When characters have their own will, their own autonomy, it gives the literary universe a greater internal mobility; it also makes the texts through which we view this world all the more open and incomplete."
Author: Pierre Bayard
40. "We grew up as kids watching those movies and we were exposed to themes of civil rights, unfairness, bigotry and fathers struggling against the kind of mob of the town, so you remember how you felt as a kid being taken seriously, that you are part of the human drama."
Author: Rachel Griffiths
41. "Back before 'Brick,' I wrote a short film that I never ended up shooting: hit men in the present who work for a mob in the future who send their victims back in time. A guy is sent his future self, he lets him run, and the whole short was them chasing each other across the city. That sat in a drawer for 10 years until after I made 'Brothers Bloom.'"
Author: Rian Johnson
42. "Nenhuma mulher escreveu o Processo, Moby Dick ou os Sete Pilares da Sabedoria. Elas não contestam a condição humana, porque mal começam a assumi-la integralmente. É o que explica porque razão as suas obras carecem de ressonâncias metafísicas e também de humor negro; elas não põem o mundo entre parênteses, não lhe fazem perguntas, não denunciam as contradições: levam-no a sério"
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
43. "One dead body required two men either to bury it or to transport it to the rear. A wounded soldier, on the other hand, immobilized five men for an indeterminate amount of time; and who knew whether it was even worth the effort."
Author: Stéphane Audeguy
44. "Shaw grinned again, wishing mightily that he and she were alone by the fire. "I never claimed to be much of a gentleman. But whether you tote about a parasol or not, you are every inch a lady. Quite possibly the finest I've ever met.""Goodness. If you continue saying such things, I'll begin to think you're smitten with me." "I'd describe it more as being clubbed into submission," he murmured, aware both that her palm had come to rest just over his heart, and that his men and the Mayfair mob across the fire pit could see it. "But yes, I am rather smitten with you."
Author: Suzanne Enoch
45. "'After what happened to the Toyota, Seven says you aren't allowed to drive a vehicle again worth more than fifteen grand.' 'What!' the Clock Twins said, sounding shocked. 'Billy! How are we supposed to pick up chicks in a crapmobile?' Tock groaned."
Author: T.J. Klune
46. "Normally the first to read the small print, I had deliberately hidden away any paperwork that referred to this ridiculous task, and now I found myself kissing goodbye to a laptop, a mobile phone and two fully-loaded MP3 players, not to mention the halogen light that allowed me to work through the night if I so desired.   I stared disconsolately out over the shimmering tarmac and   wondered if I might be granted permission to shave my legs."
Author: Tabitha McGowan
47. "Shit, money, and the World, the three American truths, powering the American mobility, claimed the Slothrops, clasped them for good to the country's fate. But they did not prosper... about all they did was persist"
Author: Thomas Pynchon
48. "In the film, I'm not very mobile, like in the space suit."
Author: Verne Troyer
49. "Nearly all of our existing power sources are generators which use a heat cycle. This includes our coal, oil, and gas fired utilities, our automobiles, trucks, and trains, and even our nuclear fission utility power plants."
Author: Wilson Greatbatch
50. "I'm not a consumer. I hate buying clothes. I don't have a mobile. I just don't need things. I don't like things."
Author: Yann Martel
