She's the one you can't put down."

I'd figured out early in my college career that there were people like Jenny and Brandon and Lydia and Josh—truly brilliant, truly luminous, whose names would appear in history books that my children and grandchildren would read, and there were people like George and Odile—who through beauty and charm and personality would make the cult of celebrity their own. And then there were people like me. People who, through the arbitrary wisdom of the admissions office, might share space with the big shots for four years, might be their friends, their confidantes, their associates, their lovers—but would live a life well below the global radar. I knew it, and over the years, I'd come to accept it.And I understood that it didn't make them any better than me."
Author: Diana Peterfreund

16. "Jedne je veceri došla kasnije nego obicno. Bio sam legao. Brzo sam navukao prve gace koje su mi se našle pod rukom. Ispostavilo se da su me baš te gace, od svih koje sam imao, najviše izdavale. Lastiša oko butina skoro i nije bilo – prakticno sam bio u suknji. Sve vreme sam morao dobro da pazim da sedim u odredenom položaju i da ne ustajem naglo. Ipak mi se cinilo da bi još nesrecnije rešenje bilo obuci pantalone. Ona bi to naime protumacila kao signal da može da ostane, da uopšte nemam nameru da spavam i da je i moja noc bez kraja i konca.Shvatio sam koliko je ta odluka bila ispravna, i u istom trenutku uvideo da je razlika izmedu coveka u gacama i coveka u pantalonama ogromna, skoro nepojmljiva.U pantalonama si spreman za sve. Nijedan poduhvat nije nezamisliv. U gacama si pak slobodan. Coveka u gacama je, na primer, teško usred noci pozvati u šetnju, što me od nje inace uopšte ne bi iznenadilo."
Author: Erlend Loe
17. "That's my Middle West-not the wheat or the prairies or the lost Swede towns, but the thrilling returning trains of my youth, and the street lamps and sleigh bells in the frosty dark and the shadows of holly wreaths thrown by lighted windows on the snow. I am part of that, a little solemn with the feel of those long winters, a little complacent from growing up in the Carraway house in a city where dwellings are still called through decades by a family's name."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
18. "True prayer is only another name for the love of God. Its excellence does not consist in the multitude of our words; for our Father knoweth what things we have need of before we ask Him. The true prayer is that of the heart, and the heart prays only for what it desires. To pray, then is to desire -- but to desire what God would have us desire. He who asks what he does not from the bottom of his heart desire, is mistaken in thinking that he prays."
Author: François Fénelon

26. "He's always had a nameless, unanchored longing; and when, at critical points in his life, a period of intense longing coincided with the appearance of a suitable object, he fell for it head over heels, and believed he had discovered a great passion. Poetry, friendship, work, women - each at one time he'd held to be the center of his life. But since the origin of his passion was internal, the chosen objects couldn't hold him long; and he had to feed his yearning with yet more loss. The deepening spiral could not end well for him..."
Author: Josephine Humphreys
