3. "Well, Arminius, I can't say you're the most natural horseman I've ever seen.'Arminius sneered down at the men standing around him, then leaned out of the saddle and put a sausage sized finger in Double-Pay Silus's face.‘Just so we're clear, I hate horses. Tribune Scaurus says I ride like a mule tender with bleeding piles, and that I have all the skill in the saddle of a sack full of shit. And despite that, before you open your mouth, I'm one of your thirty-one horsemen and that's official. You don't like it, I don't like it, but the tribune couldn't give a toss what either of us think. Wherever Centurion Corvus goes, I go. So there it is."
Author: Anthony Riches

Je te sais gré de me recevoir tel que me voici. Qu'ai-je à faire d'un ami qui me juge ? Si j'accueille un ami à ma table, je le prie de s'asseoir, s'il boite, et ne lui demande pas de danser"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry

7. "Creativity itself doesn't care at all about results - the only thing it craves is the process. Learn to love the process and let whatever happens next happen, without fussing too much about it.

Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
8. "Adversity is a natural part of being human. It is the height of arrogance to prescribe a moral code or health regime or spiritual practice as an amulet to keep things from falling apart. Things do fall apart. It is in their nature to do so. When we try to protect ourselves from the inevitability of change, we are not listening to the soul. We are listening to our fear of life and death, our lack of faith, our smaller ego's will to prevail. To listen to your soul is to stop fighting with life--to stop fighting when things fall apart; when they don't go our away, when we get sick, when we are betrayed or mistreated or misunderstood. To listen to the soul is to slow down, to feel deeply, to see ourselves clearly, to surrender to discomfort and uncertainty and to wait."
Author: Elizabeth Lesser

Nå er det bare jeg som kan si muleum og skjønne hva det betyr og hvorfor det er et bra ord, men sjarmen med det er borte, eller i hvert fall sterkt redusert, på samme måte som gleden ved mye av det man har delt med andre blir redusert når disse andre faller ned i fly. Jeg kan ikke bruke muleum lenger fordi de jeg brukte det sammen med er borte. Så enkelt er det. Hver eneste dag gjør og sier mennesker ting som forsvinner når de selv forsvinner."
Author: Erlend Loe
11. "We were in all four men with eight animals; for besides the spare horses led by Shaw and myself, an additional mule was driven along with us as a reserve in case of accident."

12. "Lorsque, parvenu à l'apogée du rut avec son peuple quel qu'il fût et quel qu'il soit, l'intellectuel décide de retrouver le chemin de la quotidienneté, il ne ramène de son aventure que des formules terriblement infécondes. Il privilégie les coutumes, les traditions, les modes d'apparaître et sa quête forcée, douloureuse ne fait qu'évoquer une banale recherche d'exotisme. C'est la période où les intellectuels chantent les moindres déterminations du panorama indigène. Le boubou se trouve sacralisé, les chaussures parisiennes ou italiennes délaissées au profit des babouches. Le langage du dominateur écorche soudain les lèvres. Retrouver son peuple c'est quelquefois dans cette période vouloir être nègre, non un nègre pas comme les autres mais un véritable nègre, un chien de nègre, tel que le veut le Blanc. Retrouver son peuple c'est se faire bicot, se faire le plus indigène possible, le plus méconnaissable, c'est se couper les ailes qu'on avait laissé pousser."
Author: Frantz Fanon
13. "Then she told him to look in the bedroom and Aureliano Segundo saw the mule. Its skin was clinging to its bones like that of its mistress, but it was just as alive and resolute as she. Petra Cotes had fed it with her wrath, and when there was no more hay or corn or roots, she had given it shelter in her own bedroom and fed it on the percale sheets, the Persian rugs, the plush bedspreads, the velvet drapes, and the canopy embroidered with gold thread and silk tassels on the episcopal bed."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Author: George Strait
15. "Where's Amy?" Ian put in. "Will you please get her to call that Evan character? He rings here twenty times a day. He's either the most mule-headed person who ever lived, or he really likes your sister. She has to have mercy on him–on all of us!"
Author: Gordon Korman
16. "I believe I essentially remain what I have always been--a narrator, but one with extremely pressing personal needs. I want to introduce, I want to describe, I want to distribute mementos, amulets, I want to break out my wallet and pass around snapshots, I want to follow my nose. In this mood I don't dare go anywhere near the shortstory form. It eats up little fat undetatched writers like me."
Author: J.D. Salinger
17. "Drenched in British purples, I have offered up my tones: pigeon breast, hind belly, balky mule lung, monkey bottom pink, lapis lazuli and malachite, excited nymph thigh, panther pee-pee, high-smelling hen hair, hedgehog in aspic, barrel-maker's brothel, revered rose, monkeybush, turkey-like white, sly violet, page's slipper, immaculate nun spring, unspeakable red, Ensor azure, affected yellow, mummy skull, rock-hard gray, brunt celadon, shop soiled smoke ring."
Author: James Ensor

Go on, and be brief and to the point!"
Author: Jaroslav Hašek

Author: Jennifer Donnelly
20. "You're apprentice Rangers,' he said. 'And the important word there is "Rangers".' He tapped the silver oaklead amulet around his neck. 'As a wearer of the Silver Oakleaf, I might expect obedience and some level of difference from you. But I do not expect you to call me sir. My name is Will and that's what you call me. You'd call my friend Gilan and my former master Halt, if he were here. That's the Ranger's way."
Author: John Flanagan
21. "The conclusion suggests that he has used them rather than cared about them, much as a preacher uses old stories and straw men to drive home some point. In rousing our concern about the characters and events--such is our suspicion, right or wrong--he has set us up, treating us not as equals, but as poor dumb mules who must be hollered and whipped into wisdom. Second, we suspect the writer of a kind of frigidity. Reading a piece of fiction that ends up nowhere--no win, no loss; life as a treadmill is like discovering, after we have run our hearts out against the timekeeper's clock, that the timekeeper forgot to switch the clock on. the only emotions such fiction can ordinarily produce are weariness and despair, and those emotions, though valid and justified (finally) by the nature of the universe, are less useful to the conduct of our lives than are the emotions we exercise in other kinds of fiction."
Author: John Gardner
22. "Horses and mules, and even sail cars, made more rapid progress than did the earliest locomotive."

Author: John Steinbeck
24. "There were no milestones in the Copper Country. Often a traveler could only measure the progress of a journey by the time it took to get from each spoiled or broken thing to the next: a half-day's walk from a dry well to the muzzle of a cannon poking out of a sand-slope, two hours to reach the skeletons of a man and a mule. The land was losing its battle with time. Ancient and exhausted, it visited decrepitude on everything within its bounds, as though out of spleen."
Author: K.J. Bishop
25. "Choose.She closed the door and stamped her feet on the icy ground, smiling as she drew in a deep breath of Russian air and felt her heart race. There was a future ahead, one that she and Chang An Lo would carve together. It was a risk, but life itself was a risk. That much she'd learned form Russia, that much she'd learned from Jens. With a farewell wave to Alexei and a final touch of the Chinese amulet around her neck to tempt the protection of Chang An Lo's gods one last time, she looped her bag onto her shoulder and headed for the gateway."
Author: Kate Furnivall
26. "Uh... ," Ivy stammered, and I glanced up to see her eyes wide in consideration."I'm kidding," I said. "It passed the lethal-amulet test, remember?""Not that. You keep it in your underwear drawer?"I hesitated, wondering why I was embarrassed. "Well, where do you put your elven magic?" I asked."

Author: Michel Houellebecq
33. "Children are a burden to a mother, but not the way a heavy box is to a mule. Our children weight hard on my heart, and thinking about them growing up honest and healthy, or just living to grow up at all, makes a load in my chest that is bigger than the safe at the bank,and more valuable to me than all the gold inside it."
Author: Nancy E. Turner
34. "Simbolicul incita, stimuleaza - înduiosatorul emotioneaza si misca."
Author: Novalis
35. "J'avoue que je suis quelque peu décontenancée par ce que vous venez de m'apprendre. Venir au monde, ou en tout cas connaître le jour dans un sac à main, qu'il ait des poignées ou non, me semble témoigner d'un mépris des convenances habituelles de la vie de famille qui rappelle les pires excès de la Révolution française. Et je présume que vous savez à quoi a conduit cette malheureuse agitation ? Quant au lieu précis où fut trouvé ce sac à main, une consigne de gare peut dort bien servir à dissimuler un faux-pas et il est probable qu'elle a déjà été utilisée à cette fin ; mais on ne peut guère la considérer comme le fondement assuré d'une position reconnue dans la bonne société."Lady Bracknell, Act I (L'importance d'être Constant)"
Author: Oscar Wilde
36. "He himself, he realized, had always been most abominably frightened, even at the height of his divine power, a frail god upon a rickety throne, afraid of opening letters, of making decisions, afraid of the instinctive knowledge in the eyes of mules, of the innocent eyes of good men, of the elastic nature of the passions, even of the devotion he had received from some men, and one woman, and dogs."
Author: Patrick White
37. "He'd used the amulet to read my thoughts again. I pictured smacking him in the face."
Author: Priya Ardis
38. "Women," Mat declared as he rode Pips down the dusty, little-used road, "are like mules." He frowned. "Wait. No. Goats. Women are like goats. Except every flaming one thinks she's a horse instead, and a prize racing mare to boot. Do you understand me, Talmanes?""Pure poetry, Mat," Talmanes said, tamping the tabac down into his pipe."
Author: Robert Jordan
39. "Elayne could not help herself. Nynaeve wielding her tongue like a needle, Cerandin stubborn as two mules, and now this. She threw back her head and screamed with frustration.When the sound died, it seemed as if the animals had quieted. Horse handlers stood about, staring at her. Coolly, she ignored them. Nothing could worm its way under her skin now. She was as calm as ice, perfectly in control of herself."Was that a cry for help," Birgitte said, tilting her head, "or are you hungry? I suppose I could find a wet nurse in—"Elayne strode away with a snarl that would have done any of the leopards proud."

Author: Robert M. Pirsig

Author: Ron Rash
43. "A man has a very insecure tenure of a property which another can carry away with his eyes. A few months reduced me to the cruel necessity either of destroying my machine, or of giving it to the public. To destroy it, I could not think of; to give up that for which I had laboured so long, was cruel. I had no patent, nor the means of purchasing one. In preference to destroying, I gave it to the public.[On his inability to keep for himself a profitable income from his invention of the Spinning Mule.]"
Author: Samuel Crompton
44. "You think this is the firsttime Lila's been impulsive? Seriously, dude, you do remember my sister,right? Short, blonde, impulsive as shock therapy?

Author: Sarah Alderson

Author: Tim Murphy
46. "And in all those escapes he could not help being astonished by the beauty of this land that was not his. He his in its breast, fingered its earth for food, clung to its banks to lap water and tried not to love it. On nights when the sky was personal, weak with the weight of its own stars, he made himself not love it. Its graveyards and its low-lying rivers. Or just a house - solitary under a chinaberry tree; maybe a mule tethered and the light hitting its hide just so. Anything could stir him and he tried hard not to love it."
Author: Toni Morrison

49. "Truly, there are no justified ways to how a mule tramples the earth, but who would be burdened to hear such an obscurity? We do not gaze upon stars to appertain affection towards them, rather to sooth our contempt fallacy of an ill-placed apprehension of them. Who concern themselves with anything if not genuine in their convictions? Delusions? I am flattered no less."
Author: Volatalistic Phil
50. "We are intelligent beings: intelligent beings cannot have been formed by a crude, blind, insensible being: there is certainly some difference between the ideas of Newton and the dung of a mule. Newton's intelligence, therefore, came from another intelligence"
Author: Voltaire
