5. "Autumn is the very soul of metamorphosis, a time when the world is poised at the door of winter - which is the door of death - but has not yet fallen. It is a world of contradictions: a time of harvest and plenty but also of cold and hardship. Here we dwell in the midst of life, but we know most keenly that all things must pass away and shrivel. Autumn turns the world from one thing into another. The year is seasoned and wise but not yet decrepit or senile."

My hot, harrowing desert and my cool, verdant Nile, infinitely lovely and unfathomable and sustaining."She gasped.His gaze fell, shielded by his lashes. An odd, half-mocking smile played about his lips. "You'll never hear old Blake say something like that."She swallowed, unable to speak, her senses abraded by his stimulating words, her pulse hammering in anticipation? Trepidation?"Remember my words next time he calls you a bloody English rose."
Author: Connie Brockway

Asa a voit soarta, ca sa nu pot revedea pe tata si sa nu pot fi alaturi de voi în clipele marii despartiri, întristarea mea ar fi insuportabila daca nu m-as gîndi ca pentru el e poate mai bine ca a scapat de amaraciunile vietii, de umilinte si de boli, precum si de toate suferintele morale de care îmi vorbea în fiece scrisoare. Scrieti-mi, pe data ce veti putea, cum s-a savîrsit din viata si daca a trecut prin mari dureri fizice. De asemenea, unde a fost înmormîntat."
Author: Emil Cioran
14. "N-are rost sa gândesti asupra mortii, decât pen-tru a o seca, pentru a o face exterioara. Atât de departe sa te fi afundat în ea, ca misterul ei sa-ti devina o semnificatie indiferenta, infinitul ei inexpresiv, vesnicia ei fada. Fa din scârba de moarte o diminuare a mortii si din frica de ea, un avânt absurd. Fugi de întelepciune; caci nu exista decât o întelepciune a mortii. Si cu cât cineva este mai întelept, cu atât priveste viata mai mult prin prisma mortii. Arunca moartea la marginile tale, ca sa mori cu acestea, si nu cu tine. Adora viata pentru infinitul motivelor care n-o sustin si dezgustate de moarte pâna la nemurire."
Author: Emil Cioran

Author: Haruki Murakami
19. "The sea had jeeringly kept his finite body up, but drowned the infinite of his soul. Not drowned entirely, though. Rather carried down alive to wondrous depths, where strange shapes of the unwarped primal world glided to and fro before his passive eyes; and the miser-merman, Wisdom, revealed his hoarded heaps; and among the joyous, heartless, ever-juvenile eternities, Pip saw the multitudinous, God-omnipresent, coral insects, that out of the firmament of waters heaved the colossal orbs. He saw God's foot upon the treadle of the loom, and spoke it; and therefore his shipmates called him mad. So man's insanity is heaven's sense; and wandering from all mortal reason, man comes at last to that celestial thought, which, to reason, is absurd and frantic; and weal or woe, feels then uncompromised, indifferent as his God."
Author: Herman Melville

Author: James Henry Breasted
22. "You do not know me, but I am a juvenile delinquent. I do not trust authority figures, I probably will not graduate from high school, and statistics say my present rowdiness and vandalism will likely lead to more serious crimes. I am a dangerous fellow, and I am causing mayhem in this store. [...] There. I have now shamelessly destroyed the symmetry of this shelf, undoing hours of labor by underpaid store employees. If you could see me, you would be frightened."
Author: Katherine Applegate
23. "A number of well-understood mechanisms, including single gene mutations, produce changes that qualify as macroevolution. These include heterochronic mutations that alter structures by changing growth rates, homeotic mutations that change the identities of whole body parts, and paedomorphosis, which converts juvenile stages directly to adult ones."
Author: Kenneth R. Miller
24. "He put the knuckles of his fist to the table, leaned toward Niles and spoke quietly, cuttingly, in his rough, gravelly voice."Fucked her last night, man, and this morning. Five times. Five. It was like she hadn't been touched in a decade. So fuckin' sweet. Damn," he taunted, his eyes locked on Niles. "You've had her, you gotta know, not enough money in the world's worth that."
Author: Kristen Ashley

Author: Lydia Netzer
27. "When one writes a novel about grown people, he knows exactly where to stop - that is, with a marriage; but when he writes about juveniles, he must stop where he best can."

Author: Martin Luther King Jr.
30. "Of course I know that the twins are only words on a page, and I'm certainly not the sort of writer who talks to his characters or harbours any illusions about the creative process. But at the same time, I think it's juvenile and arrogant when literary writers compulsively remind their readers that the characters aren't real. People know that already. The challenge is to make an intelligent reader suspend disbelief, to seduce them into the reality of a narrative."
Author: Michel Faber
31. "So, you tumbled that wolf you were with?" Mercy was too much a pack animal to take offense at the personal question. She grinned. "How did you know it was me?" "Do I look senile to you?"..."Yes," Mercy said. "And I'm not doing it again." If she kept telling herself that, maybe her traitorous body would actually notice and shut up with its demands. The older woman gave her a sour look. "Damn shame. What, you like them prettier?" A snort. "In my day, we liked men who looked like men."
Author: Nalini Singh

Author: Oğuz Atay
34. "Finding a new ethics or esthetics, as Dr. Douglass asks, will not put us in a state of grace. Existence is not given meaning by importing it into a revelation from the outside. The meaning is —there, in more closely contacting the actual situation, the only situation that there is, whatever it is. As our situation is, closely contacting it would surely result in plenty of trouble and perhaps in terrible social conflicts, terrible opportunities and duties, during which we might learn something and at the end of which we might know something, even a new ethics; for it is in such conflicts that new ethics are discovered. But it is just these conflicts that we do not observe happening. Everybody talks nice. At most there is some unruliness and dumb protest, and some withdrawal.So urging the juveniles to go to church is not serious, for how will the church give them faith? What opportunity will it open?"
Author: Paul Goodman
35. "Now shame is the only direct attack on conceit, the defensive image of oneself. Conceit is the common denominator of the Organization man, the hipster, and the juvenile delinquent-this is why I have been lumping them together. The conceited image of the self is usually not quite conscious, but it is instantly woundable; and people protect it with a conformity to their peers (oneself is superior). But the conceited groups differ in their methods of confirming and enhancing conceit: the juvenile delinquent by surly and mischievous destructiveness of the insulting privileged outgroup; the hipster by making fools of them with token performances; the Organization Man by status and salary. To his inner idol, they sacrifice the ingenuous exhibition and self-expression that could make them great, effective, or loved in the world; but that can also be shamed if it is mistaken, out of place, or disproportionate."
Author: Paul Goodman
36. "The thing you've got to watch for is going broke when you're old. Look at all the people that go down and out at the finish. The man who built my country place is blind now and penniless. That's terrible!"
Author: Pearl White

Author: Ryan Tedder
38. "So – I am n-nothing more than – than a bloody job?! On top of not knowing why you must look after me – you only jumped at the chance to help me because your – that V-Vampire thought you couldn't?! What are you, some – some child?!""I am no child, human!""Oh I would not have thought so," she breathed condescendingly sending his blood to boil despite the ring, "if it were not for the fact that only children react so wondrously juvenile when faced with such a choice! You bargain my life over a show of bravado! And where is your brother, Christian?! He has not been here to see your brilliant work as my watcher, has he?!"
Author: S.C. Parris
39. "I am a greaser," Sodapop chanted. "I am a JD and a hood. I blacken the name of our fair city. I beat up people. I rob gas stations. I am a menace to society. Man, do I have fun!" "Greaser...greaser...greaser..."Steve singsonged. "O, victim of enviornment, underprivelaged, rotton no-count hood!"Juvenile delinquent, you're no good!" Darry shouted.Get thee hence, white trash," Two-Bit said in asnobbish voice. "I am a Soc. I am the privelaged and the well-dressed. I throw beer blasts, drive fancy cars, break windows at fancy parties."And what do you do for fun?" I inquired in a serious, awed voice.I jump greasers!" Two-Bit screamed, and did a cartwheel."
Author: S.E. Hinton
40. "I saw the sunset-colored sands, The Nile like flowing fire between, Where Rameses stares forth serene, And Ammon's heavy temple stands.I saw the rocks where long ago, Above the sea that cries and breaks, Swift Perseus with Medusa's snakes Set free the maiden white like snow.And many skies have covered me, And many winds have blown me forth, And I have loved the green, bright north, And I have loved the cold, sweet sea.But what to me are north and south, And what the lure of many lands, Since you have leaned to catch my hands And lay a kiss upon my mouth."
Author: Sara Teasdale
41. "As a young man just beginning to publish some short fiction in the t&a magazines, I was fairly optimistic about my chances of getting published; I knew that I had some game, as the basketball players say these days, and I also felt that time was on my side; sooner or later the best-selling writers of the sixties and seventies would either die or go senile, making room for newcomers like me."
Author: Stephen King
42. "Peter always brings death with him, along with spinach or nuts. He said he'd seen 20 cases of West Nile during the week and five deaths from it. He also said two people had died from food allergies. "They're so hungry they're taking their chances eating foods they're seriously allergic to," he said."
Author: Susan Beth Pfeffer
43. "My life is fair game for anybody. I spent an unhappy, penniless childhood in Brooklyn. I had to slug my way up in a town called Hollywood where people love to trample you to death. I don't relax because I don't know how. I don't want to know how. Life is too short to relax."
Author: Susan Hayward

45. "CLEOPATRA TO THE ASPThe bright mirror I braved: the devil in itLoved me like my soul, my soul:Now that I seek myself in a serpentMy smile is fatal.Nile moves in me; my thighs splayInto the squalled Mediterranean;My brain hides in that AbyssiniaLost armies foundered towards.Desert and river unwrinkle again.Seeming to bring them the waters that make drunkCaesar, Pompey, Antony I drank.Now let the snake reign.A half-deity out of Capricorn,This rigid Augustus mountsWith his sword virginal indeed; and has shornSummarily the moon-horned riverFrom my bed. May the moonRuin him with virginity! Drink me, now, wholeWith coiled Egypt's past; then from my deltaSwim like a fish toward Rome."
Author: Ted Hughes
46. "We have treated our most serious adversaries, such as Iran and North Korea, in the most juvenile manner - by giving them the silent treatment. In so doing, we have weakened, not strengthened, our bargaining position and our leadership."
Author: Theodore C. Sorensen
47. "Zaman hiç kesintiye ugramadan hep ayni sekilde akarsa, elimizden kaymaya baslar ve zaman duygumuz, yasam duygumuzla öylesine baglantili ve iç içedir ki, bu duygulardan birinin zayiflamasi demek, öbürünün de aci ve yipratici bir deneyimden geçmesi demektir. Can sikintisinin kaynagi ile ilgili bir yigin yanlis düsünce dolasir ortalikta Can sikintisi denen sey, aslinda, zamanin tekdüzeliginin neden oldugu sagliksiz bir kisalmadir. Aliskanlik, zaman duygusu uykuya yatarsa ortaya çikar ve insana gençlik yillari yavas yavas, daha sonraki yillar ise gitgide hizlanarak akip gidiyor gibi gelirse bu aliskanlik yüzündendir. Yeni aliskanliklar edinmenin ya da eskilerini degistirmenin altinda yatan sey, yasami korumak, zaman duygumuzu yogunlastirmak, zaman deneyimimizi yavaslatmak ve böylece yasam duygumuzu yenilemek arzusudur."

Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error. The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness."
