10. "Overeating is the addiction of choice of carers, and that's why it's come to be regarded as the lowest-ranking of all the addictions. It's a way of fucking yourself up while still remaining fully functional, because you have to. Fat people aren't indulging in the "luxury" of their addiction making them useless, chaotic, or a burden. Instead, they are slowly self-destructing in a way that doesn't inconvenience anyone. And that's why it's so often a woman's addiction of choice. All the quietly eating mums. All the KitKats in office drawers. All the unhappy moments, late at night, caught only in the fridge light."
Author: Caitlin Moran
11. "She liked anything orange: leaves; some moons; marigolds; chrysanthemums; cheese; pumpkin, both in pie and out; orange juice; marmalade. Orange is bright and demanding. You can't ignore orange things. She once saw an orange parrot in the pet store and had never wanted anything so much in her life. She would have named it Halloween and fed it butterscotch. Her mother said butterscotch would make a bird sick and, besides, the dog would certainly eat it up. September never spoke to the dog again — on principle."
Author: Catherynne M. Valente
12. "I get really upset seeing my friends who are mums crying because they feel like they're not good enough. Clever, confident, kind young women all going, 'I'm ruining my child's life.'"
Author: Daisy Donovan

Author: Dianne Feinstein
14. "Lord Peter's library was one of the most delightful bachelor rooms in London. Its scheme was black and primrose; its walls were lined with rare editions, and its chairs and Chesterfield sofa suggested the embraces of the houris. In one corner stood a black baby grand, a wood fire leaped on a wide old-fashioned hearth, and the Sèvres vases on the chimneypiece were filled with ruddy and gold chrysanthemums. To the eyes of the young man who was ushered in from the raw November fog it seemed not only rare and unattainable, but friendly and familiar, like a colourful and gilded paradise in a mediæval painting"
Author: Dorothy L. Sayers

17. "Autumn. It's crispness, it's anticipation, it's melancholia, it's cool breezes replacing summer's heat. It's long days in the field, a harvest festival when work's done, a cheering crowd in a football stadium, chrysanthemums punctuating a somber landscape. It's Halloween highjinx, pumpkins grinning toothy smiles, the crack of pecan pressed against pecan. It's the first curls of woodsmoke, fresh blisters from pushing a rake. It's crisp and fresh and mellow and snug, solemn and melancholy. And it's very, very welcome."
Author: Good Housekeeping Magazine

Author: Magnus Scheving
29. "Like the fires caught and fixed by a great colourist from the impermanence of the atmosphere and the sun, so that they should enter and adorn a human dwelling, they invited me, those chrysanthemums, to put away all my sorrows and to taste with a greedy rapture during that tea-time hour the all-too-fleeting pleasures of November, whose intimate and mysterious splendour they set ablaze all around me."
Author: Marcel Proust

37. "Ji išejo nieko nepaaiškinusi. Todel negalima atleisti savižudžiams. Jie išeina nepalike jokios žinutes, jokio sumauto raštelio, išeina visiems laikams, o mums tenka tik graužtis, kad mes del to kalti. Net jeigu paliktu šimtus rašteliu, tai nieko nekeistu. Visokie valkatos mums rašo raštelius, bet mes žinom, kad tai ne tie rašteliai, kuriu mums reikia, kurie mus paguostu. Slapta viliames, bet negalim saves apgauti. Žinom, kad tai visiška kvailyste, vis tiek graužiames. Kadangi niekad nesužinosim tiesos. Visi pasiaiškinimai, visi pasiteisinimai bus tiktai musu paciu noras kaip nors nusimesti atsakomybes našta."

38. "Priešas turi buti atpažistamas ir baisus, jis turi buti tavo namuose arba prie duru slenkscio. Štai kodel žydai. Mums juos atsiunte Dievo apvaizda, tad, del Dievo, pasinaudokime jais ir melskimes, kad visada butu žydu, kuriu galetume bijoti ir nekesti. Priešo reikia, kad tauta turetu vilti. Sakoma, patriotizmas - paskutine niekšu prieglauda: neturintis morales principu dažniausiai apsisiaucia veliava, o mišrunai visada rekia apie gryna tautos krauja. Tautine tapatybe - paskutine varguoliu atspirtis. O tapatybe igyja prasme tik per neapykanta kitokiam. Reikia puoseleti neapykanta kaip pilietine aistra. Priešas yra tautu draugas. Visada reikia tureti, ko nekesti, kad kaltintume del savo vargu."
Author: Umberto Eco
39. "The essential cultural discrimination is not between having and not having or haves and have-nots, but between the superfluous and the indispensable. Wisdom, it seems to me, is always poised upon the knowledge of minimums; it might be thought to be the art of minimums. Granting the frailty, and no doubt the impermanence, of modern technology as a human contrivance, the man who can keep a fire in a stove or on a hearth is not only more durable, but wiser, closer to the meaning of fire, than the man who can only work a thermostat."
Author: Wendell Berry
40. "Mums tik daudz pieder, cik mes paši ar savam rokam varam nopelnit, paši ar savu garu uzcelt, paši ar savu pratu izgudrot, paši izdavat un beidzot – paši sava sirdi izturet. Pazuduši esam, ja gaidam, lai citi mus celtu, atzitu, stiprinatu, aizstavetu un aplaimotu."
