1. "Because I love you. Don't you get it? Not because Cassandra is a part of you and Coroebus is a part of me. I love you because you are Nadira. The strange beautiful Nadira. The Nadira that has such hatred for me it kills to see the anger in your eyes whenever you even glance at me. I love Nadira. Not Cassandra. I love you."
Author: Atarah L. Poling

Author: Brandon Sanderson
3. "Are there any two words in all of the English language more closely twinned than courage and cowardice? I do not think there is a man alive who will not yearn to possess the former and dread to be accused of the latter. One is held to be the apogee of man's character, the other its nadir. An yet, to me the two sit side by side on the circle of life, removed from each other by the merest degree of arc. (MARCH - Chapter 11 - page 168)"
Author: Geraldine Brooks

Author: Len G. Murray
10. "The Dordogne in 1984 was the nadir. Diarrhea, moths like flying hamsters, the blowtorch heat. Awake at three in the morning on a damp and lumpy mattress. Then the storm. Like someone hammering sheets of tin. Lightning so bright it came through the pillow. In the morning sixty, seventy dead frogs turning slowly in the pool. And at the far end something larger and furrier, a cat perhaps, or the Franzetti's dog, which Katie was poking with a snorkel. (pg 53)"
Author: Mark Haddon
11. "Bana gül göndermis."Hattin diger ucundan, hayal kirikligini belirten bir hirlama geldi. "Hayatim, nadiren randevuya gittigini biliyorum ama o seyleri sokak köselerinde bes papele satiyorlar.""Kristalden yapilmis." Elena konusurken, kristal gülün isiltilarindan gözünü alamiyordu. "Ay, olamaz.""Ne olamaz?"Elena agzi açik bir halde en yakin çekmeceye uzanip fazla hafif oldugu için nadiren kullandigi ince keskiyi aldi ve gülün sapindaki bir bölgeyi hafifçe kazimaya çalisti. Biçak islemiyordu. Sonra biçagi tersine sürttü ama bu kez gül "Çizilmelere dayanikli"biçki çizdi. "Ay olamaz.""Ellie, neler olup bittigini hemen anlatmazsan yemin ederim seni esek sudan gelene kadar döverim. Ne oluyor? Kan emen mutant bir gülmüymüs.?Elena kahkahasini tutup elindeki tarif edilmez güzellikteki seye bakti. "Kristal degilmis.""Kübik zirkon mu? diye sordu Sara kuru kuru. "Ay, dur bir dakika, yoksa plastik mi?""Elmas."Ölüm sessizligi." sy 111"

12. "I can never forget the indescribably crafty shadow that passed over Flatfish's face as he laughed at me, his neck drawn in. It resembled contempt, yet it was different: if the world, like the sea, had depths of a thousand fathoms, this was the kind of weird shadows which might be found hovering here and there at the bottom. It was a laugh that enabled me to catch a glimpse of the very nadir of adult life."
Author: Osamu Dazai
13. "Failure is a chastening to do it more better , think more intelligently and restart the whole course from the nadir ."

14. "Günah islemek vesilesi, nadiren elimize geçer, en faziletkâr adamlarin bile, hayatta bekledikleri sey bu firsattir. Bana günahsiz bir zevk gösteremezsin. Mânevîlerini bir tarafa at. Saadet ve günah, ayni mahiyetin iki türlü ismidir. Kendini iyice yokla, günahsiz geçirdigin günlere yanarsin. Ihtiyarligin en büyük aczi, artik günah islemeye tâkati kalmamasidir. Zevk, tabiyatin seciyesidir. Zekânin yaratici bir kuvvet olmaktan çikmasi, vücûdun arzularina muhalefet etmesinden ileri geliyor. Istedigin herseyi yap ve yapabilecegin seyi iste, hiçbir kaideye kulak asma. Yasamanin sirri budur!"
Author: Peyami Safa
15. "Bu firsati sana bahsettiginden dolayi Allaha sükret. Günah islemek vesilesi, nadiren elimize geçer, en faziletkar adamlarin bile hayatta beklediledikleri sey bu firsattir. Bana günahsiz bir zevk gösteremezsin. Manevilerini bir tarafa at."
Author: Peyami Safa
16. "Insanlar daha çok mesaleye benziyorlardi;birileri üfleyinceye kadar yanarlardi.Ne kadar nadir diger insanlarin yüzleri sizi sizden alip,kendi duygularinizi en titrek düsüncelerinizi sizlere yansitirdi?"
Author: Ray Bradbury
17. "Ama ne yazik ki tarihte hep ayni trajedi tekrarlanmaktadir, çünkü fikir adamlari zamani gelince, dava adami olma sorumlulugunu üstlenmekte zorlanirlar ve pek nadir durumlarda harekete geçerler. Düsün dünyasi zengin, yaratici insanlarda bu ikilem her zaman ortaya çikar: Çünkü yasadiklari dönemin saçmaliklarini en iyi görenler ve gözleyenler onlardir ve bir cosku aninda, kendilerini büyük bir tutkuyla siyasi mücadelenin içine atarlar, ama öte yandan da zorbaliga zorbalikla karsilik vermekte çekinir, tereddüt ederler. Duyduklari sorumluluk onlari siddete basvurmaktan, kan dökmekten alikoyar; o bir anlik tereddüt, saygili geri durus, siddeti tesvik ederek onlarin elini kolunu baglar ve tüm güçlerini yok eder."
Author: Stefan Zweig
18. "I'm not concerned with paid assassins ... mindless, soulless animals who excel at nothing else. But you, Erik ... you love all the beauty in this world ... you are a genius in so many different fields. Why do you set yourself beyond the pale of humanity by such a despicable crime?"He took off the mask and turned slowly to let me see. "This face which has denied me all human rights also frees me of all obligation to the human race," he said quietly. "My mother hated me, my village drove me from my home, I was exhibited like an animal in a cage until a knife showed me the only way to be free. The pleasures of love will always be forbidden to me ... but I am young, Nadir. I have all the desires of any normal man."
Author: Susan Kay
19. "As the blackness of the night recedes so does the nadir of yesterday. The child I am forgets so quickly."

20. "His cell-phone rang. Dominic fumbled for it on the nightstand next to the couch, the dim lights not helping his endeavour. He had piercing, generic, banal fluorescent lights on his face all the time at work and at University, it was so bad it made him loathe even natural sunlight. Lucky this apartment's living room light had a dimmer. He flipped open his phone and said hello. ‘Hey Dom, how you doin'?' a voice boomed. It was Ben. They proceeded to talk about the upcoming exams, which were deceptively close as it was week 10 at the moment. Yes, they would be alright. Yes, they would meet up afterwards. No, he hadn't studied more than Ben had. As he clapped the phone closed after the genial conversation reached its natural nadir, he had forgotten most of what had been said"
Author: T.P. Grish
21. "The zenith is just a little farther away from the nadir"
Author: Uzoma Ezeson
