Author: Abigail Barnette
102. "I don't think rock 'n roll is necessarily a young man's game. I think Neil Young is just as rock'n'roll now as he was in his 20s. I'd like to think we can still be edgy and challenging."

104. "Jane remembers those years, though, as if they had been [a movie]--in part because her friends...always talked about everything as if it was over ("Remember last night?"), while holding out the possibility that whatever happened could be rerun. Neil didn't have that sense of things. He thought people shouldn't romanticize ordinary life. "Our struggles, our little struggles," he would whisper, in bed, at night. Sometimes he or she would click on some of the flashlights and consider the ceiling, with the radiant swirls around the bright nuclei, the shadows like opened oysters glistening in brine. (In the '80s, the champagne was always waiting.)"
Author: Ann Beattie

111. "Top Gun," I whispered to Lindsey. We'd started pointing out Luc's ubiquitous pop culture references, having decided that because he cut his fangs in the Wild West, he'd been entranced by movies and television. You know, because living in a society of magically enhanced vampires didn't require enough willing suspension of disbelief.-Merit in Chloe Neill's Friday Night Bites"
Author: Chloe Neill

Author: Dave Eggers
114. "He's on the verge of it--we can tell. He is on the verge of finding that very hard truth--that it will never be complete, or feel complete. This is usually something you only have to learn once--that just like there is no such thing as forever, there is no such thing as total. When you're in the thrall of your first love, this discovery feels like the breaking of all momentum, the undermining of all promise. For the past year, Neil has assumed that love was like a liquid pouring into a vessel, and that the longer you loved, the more full the vessel became, until it was entirely full. The truth is that over time, the vessel expands as well. You grow. Your life wides. And you can't expect your partner's love alone to fill you. There will always be space for other things. And that space isn't empty as much as it's filled by another element. Even though the liquid is easier to see, you have to learn to appreciate the air."
Author: David Levithan
115. "Neil Armstrong was probably one of the most human guys I've ever known in my life."
Author: Eugene Cernan
116. "O'Neill presents a very complex multi-layered kind of challenge. His characters are always deeply complex and, to a great extent, inaccessible."
Author: Gabriel Byrne
117. "'Coraline' is Neil Gaiman's book, it sold a lot, it has a big fan base. It was originally conceived to be live action, but I never really wanted it to be. I always thought that it would work better as an animated film."
Author: Henry Selick
118. "From: EONeill22@hotmail.comSent: Saturday, June 8, 2013 1:18 PMTo: GDL824@yahoo.comSubject: what happy looks likeSunrises over the harbor. Ice cream on a hot day. The sound of the waves down the street. The way my dog curls up next to me on the couch. Evening strolls. Great movies. Thunderstorms. A good cheeseburger. Fridays. Saturdays. Wednesdays, even. Sticking your toes in the water. Pajama pants. Flip-flops. Swimming. Poetry. The absence of smiley faces in an e-mail.What does it look like to you?"
Author: Jennifer E. Smith
119. "Nineteenth-century preacher Henry Ward Beecher's last words were "Now comes the mystery." The poet Dylan Thomas, who liked a good drink at least as much as Alaska, said, "I've had eighteen straight whiskeys. I do believe that's a record," before dying. Alaska's favorite was playwright Eugene O'Neill: "Born in a hotel room, and--God damn it--died in a hotel room." Even car-accident victims sometimes have time for last words. Princess Diana said, "Oh God. What's happened?" Movie star James Dean said, "They've got to see us," just before slamming his Porsche into another car. I know so many last words. But I will never know hers."
Author: John Green
120. "As much as I love acoustic Neil Young - and I do deeply - I may be more passionate about the electric. Luckily it's not a contest, and we never have to make that choice. But Neil Young on an electric guitar - I feel like I've never seen or heard anything like it."
Author: Jonathan Demme
121. "I see. And who is this author?""Neil Fucking Gaiman.""His second name is Fucking?""No, Leif, that's the honorary second name all celebrities are given by their fans. It's not an insult, it's a huge compliment, and he's earned it. You'd like him. He dresses all in black like you. Read a couple of his books, and then when you meet him, you'll squee too."Leif found the suggestion distasteful. "I would never behave with so little dignity. Nor would I wish to be confronted in such a manner by anyone else. Vampires inspire screams, not squees. Involuntary urination is common, I grant, but it properly flows from a sense of terror, not an ecstatic sense of hero worship."
Author: Kevin Hearne
122. "He smiled and squinted at me again, tilting his head up and to the right as he stared. "Maybe what I'm attracted to in you is more than your looks and your brain and your humor." He leaned closer like he had a secret. "It could be your soul," he whispered.I pushed his cheek until he was squinting at the door to the kitchen instead. "Is this when you tell me I'm your soul mate, O'Neill?"
Author: Laura Anderson Kurk
123. "One day, Evie O'Neill, you're gonna fall head over heels for me!"
Author: Libba Bray
124. "Me ei muutu. Arvame, et muutume, kuid see pole nii. Mõni sündmus või inimene võib meis esile tuua joone, millest varem keegi teadlik polnud. Need jooned on alati meie sees olemas, me lihtsalt ei märka neid. Ei märka sedagi, mis väljaspool. Maskid piiravad vaatevälja. Ometi jätab iga inimene, kellega viivuks või aastateks kokku satume, sellele maskile oma kriimu. Mõni inimene kriimustab seda nii tugevalt, et mask hoopiski eest pudeneb. Neile tuleb tänulik olla. Nad päästavad meid."
Author: Marek Kahro
125. "Fölöttük sorakoztak a könyvei. Neil lakásában mindenütt könyvek voltak, itt-ott elszórva – ugyanis úgy érezte, bármely szoba meztelen nélkülük, ráadásul annyi volt belolük, hogy el sem fértek volna egy helyen –, itt a kuckóban csak a kedvenceit orizte: klasszikus sci-fik, fantasyk (csakis a legjobb fajtából) és egy csomó kézikönyv – súlyos, történelmi témájú kötetek, foleg háborúkról, melyek közül nem mindegyiknek ért a végére. Ezeket mufajok szerint csoportosította, azon belül pedig ábécérendben tárolta oket."
Author: Marie Phillips
126. "Neil számított erre, de csak mert az ember számít rá, hogy bemosnak neki egy jó nagyot, az nem fáj kevésbé."
Author: Marie Phillips
127. "I feel I've made the transition from model to actress, but I'm not that secure about it. Lauren Hutton, Jennifer O'Neill - we all know that a few films don't mean all that much."
Author: Maud Adams
128. "You can say that Wayne Coyne sounds like Neil Young."
Author: Mike Lowry
129. "Toinenkin seikka kohotti hänet muita korkeammalle: hän oli laskenut pöydälle avoimen kirjan. Siinä ravintolassa ei kukaan toinen ollut koskaan laskenut pöydälle avointa kirjaa. Kirja oli Terezalle salaisen killan tunnus. Hän saattoi taistella ympärillään leviävää karkeuden maailmaa vastaan vain yhdellä aseella: kirjoilla, varsinkin romaaneilla, joita hän lainasi kaupunginkirjastosta. Hän oli lukenut paljon, Fieldingistä Thomas Manniin. Kirjat olivat hänen näennäispakonsa elämästä, joka ei tyydyttänyt häntä. Mutta niillä oli merkityksensä myös esineinä: hänestä oli hauskaa kulkea kadulla kirja kainalossa. Hän käytti kirjaa kuin edellisen vuosisadan keikari tyylikästä keppiä. Kirja erotti hänet muista."
Author: Milan Kundera
130. "Mooooon!" said the Ogre. "Tranquility …" Then he pointed at the full moon. "Neil Armstrong walked in a sea of Tranquility." Then he added, "It's made of cheese. But you have to take off the plastic before you put it on a burger."Mickey sighed."What's his story?" the wraith asked."He's chocolate," Mikey said."
Author: Neal Shusterman
131. "Still it is very important for us to call upon him: First, that our hearts may be fired with a zealous and burning desire ever to seek, love, and serve him, while we become accustomed in every need to flee to him as to a sacred anchor. Secondly, that there may enter our hearts no desire and no wish at all of which we should be ashamed to make him a witness, while we learn to setall our wishes before his eyes, and even to pour out our whole hearts. Thirdly, that we be prepared to receive his benefits with true gratitude of heart and thanksgiving, benefits that our prayer reminds us come from his hand. (Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, trans. Ford Lewis Battles, ed. John T. McNeill [Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 1960], Book 3, chapter 20, section 3.)"
Author: R.C. Sproul
132. "A scene of Mahabharata where the Surya Devta(Sun God)would come to bless Kunti with a babyThe child watching this on TV says "I have been taught that Neil Armstrong had taken several days to reach the moon.Surya Devta took only half a minute to land up in the Kunti's room; that too, he didn't even need a rocket-he had simply walked. Science and Sanskrit had always appeared contradicting subjects to me at school:-)"
Author: Ravinder Singh
133. "I'm not full of malice, but I do dislike Neil Diamond a lot, and I'm sorry that I've done a Neil Diamond song."
Author: Robert Wyatt
134. "Neil Mars?! I could blame him for having killer looks but he could not be faulted for this. He couldn't have chosen that name for himself. No wonder he tortures his Mom by calling her by her name."
Author: Rucy Ban
