1. "I doubt he'll come all this way for an orange," she said as she tapped her spatula against the side of the bowl. That was what I loved most about Nina: she'd heard it all, and nothing any of us threw at her ever surprised her. "You know, once upon a time, everyone could walk into a marked and buy anything they wanted." I snorted. "Fairy takes start with 'once upon a time' Nina." "It was a fairy take of sorts, but that didn't make it any less real," she said lowering the bowl to focus on me. "It's frightening how much things change in seventy-one years."

2. "Ergenlik suçlamalari,boyutlari ne olursa olsun,insanligin çektigi acilarin karmasikligini bir anda ortadan kaldiri veriyordu.Eger ergenlik suçlamasini edebiyat yapitlarina uyarlayacak olsaydik,dünya üzerindeki bütün edebiyat elestirmenleri islerinden olurdu.Hamlet'in,Raskolnikov'un ve Genç Werther'in sirri neydi?Erganlik bunalimlari tabi.Peki ya Don Quixote veya Humbert Humbert?Onda ne var canim,yanit:Orta yas bunalimlari.Öyleyse zavalli Anna Karenina'yi nasil açiklamaliydi?Yanit gayet baitti: regl öncesi sendromu,bir de fazla salgilanan hormonlar."
Author: Alain De Botton

Author: Anton Chekhov
4. "- A veces tengo la impresión de que todas las personas que he conocido desde que vine a Japón, incluyendo a Otohiko, son un poco insustanciales. No me siento identificada con ellas. Siempre he pensando que las personas eran más extrañas, deshonestas, desordenadas, viles, nobles, en fin, que tenían muchas más facetas. Que la vida era fantástica, y el amor, algo maravilloso. Yo soy, según la ocasión, femenina, fuerte y frágil, capaz de pelearme con alguien, gritando hasta quedarme ronca, y, acto seguido, de mirar juntos la luna cogidos de la mano. De experimentar cada día sensaciones diferentes haciendo las mismas cosas. De llorar y de dar miedo. Pero sigo siendo siempre la misma."
Author: Banana Yoshimoto
5. "Girls are taught to sing high and pretty, like Antony, not low and from the guts like Nina Simone. But we're slowly trying to change that. There are so many things we're not told growing up, and it's our true feminist responsibility to take the truth to the people who need to hear it."
Author: Beth Ditto
6. "As a bookish child in Calcutta, I used to thrill to the adventures of bad girls whose pursuit of happiness swept them outside the bounds of social decency. Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Emma Bovary and Anna Karenina lived large in my imagination. The naughty girls of Hollywood films flirted and knew how to drive."
Author: Bharati Mukherjee
7. "Tvoja ih praznina sve više ocarava."
Author: Branko Miljkovic

Author: Christa Faust
12. "Expiring? Excommunicated? No. Nina'd said expunging. Yes. He was going to expunge in a roomful of angry, perfumed, supernatural females while Nina tore Phoebe limb from limb and he wore a dress. How inhumane."
Author: Dakota Cassidy
13. "I watch him, enthralled as slowly, like the predator he is, he stalks me in time to the slow sultry beat of the music. He's barefoot, wearing just an untucked white shirt, jeans, and a smoldering look. Nina sings "You're mine" as Christian reaches me, his intention clear."
Author: E.L. James
14. "Kada ideali, moralni, estetski, religiozni ili socijalni, nisu vise kadri da upravljaju zivotom i da mu odrede kraj, kako se zivot moze odrzati a da ne postane praznina? Strast apsurda je jedina koja jos baca demonsku svetlost na haos. Samo vezivanjem za apsurd, kroz ljubav apsolutno nepotrebnu, to jest za nesto sto ne moze poprimiti konzistentnost ali koje kroz sopstvenu funkciju moze da stimulise zivotnu iluziju. Strast apsurda moze se roditi jedino u coveku u kome je sve likvidirano, ali u kome se mogu pojaviti stravicna buduca preobrazenja."
Author: Emil Cioran
15. "The keepers would give the gorillas an assortment of fruits and vegetables each afternoon, and on this particular occasion, Judy Sievert tossed Nina an apple, which rolled away. Instead of going to get it, Nina just 'sat there sadly,' in Judy's words. Judy continued her rounds, handing out yams and apples to the other gorillas, but Nina sat there looking appleless and downtrodden. Taking pity, Judy tossed her another apple. As soon as Nina had it, she got up and went over to where the first apple had rolled away, taking it too."
Author: Eugene Linden

Author: Filipe Russo
17. "Blue Boy i ja krenuli smo u potragu za planinom. I našli smo jednu još prije zore. To nije bila baš bogzna kakva planina, prije bi se moglo reci da je to bilo brdo, ali Blue Boy je zacvilio kad ju je vidio.Odnio sam ga do vrha dok je na istoku izlazilo sunce. Ležao je i promatrao me dok sam mu kopao grob. Nije mogao podignuti glavu, ali dao mi je do znanja kako zna; naculio je uši i nije skidao oka s mene.Kad sam završio s kopanjem, sjeo sam na zemlju i stavio njegovu glavu u krilo. Povremeno, kad bi smogao snage, polizao bi me po ruci.Malo kasnije je bez napora izdahnuo i glava mu je klonula preko moje ruke. Sahranio sam ga duboko u zemlji i naslagao teško kamenje na njegov grob. Tako da ima svoj mir.Kad sam stavio zadnji kamen, pomislio sam kako je zahvaljujuci svom dobrom nosu sigurno vec na pola puta natrag u planine.Lako je njemu sustici djeda."
Author: Forrest Carter
18. "Osebnost, ki ni celovita, živi razdvojeno, kar predstavljajo posamezne barve ali njihove kombinacije. Osebnost, ki ni razdvojena, živi celovito, kar predstavlja bela svetloba. Osebnost, ki izgubi stik s svojo dušo, ki izgubi izvir Luci, je osebnost, ki je postala sposobna tega, cemur recemo zlo in kar predstavlja crnina."
Author: Gary Zukav
19. "Chovia bastante naquela manhã. A luz tinha um tom acinzentado e musguento devido às nuvens baixas. Teve de admitir que a menina não era um cadáver. Estava viva. Talvez tivesse nascido gelada, mas agora estava viva. Ainda suja com o sangue do nascimento e o início aguado das suas fezes, Liir levou-a até à porta e ergue-a para a chuva. Lavada, revelou-se verde."
Author: Gregory Maguire
20. "'Anna Karenina' is just a story about a woman falling in love with a bloke who is not her husband. It's gossip, rubbish - on the other hand, it's the deepest story there could be about social transgression, about love, betrayal, duty, children."
Author: Hanif Kureishi
21. "The hormones also made me more emotional. I found myself snapping at Chad and Jeff for blasting The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin on TV. I also was more prone to isolation, vegging out in my room, listening to Janet Jackson's The Velvet Rope on loop while reading heavy heroine novels like Madame Bovary, Anna Karenina, A Room with a View, and The Age of Innocence."
Author: Janet Mock

25. "Okay," Glenn said as he stood. "We need to get this back to the . . . ah, forensics lab. I want to know how long the body was stressed before she died.""An hour. That's all. Perhaps less." We all looked at Nina, and she shrugged, dust and rust marring her makeup like dried blood. "But by all means, do your scientific poking and prodding. She's suffered so much, what's one more indignity?"
Author: Kim Harrison
26. "He got closer and I would have stepped back, but his hand came to thee side of my neck, his long fingers sliding up and into my hair behind my ear. His fingers were covered in a leather glove, but it still felt good, good enough to root me to the spot.He dipped his face closer to mine and whispered, "What're you worried about, baby?"I took in a breath, let it out and for some reason whispered back honestly, "It's just scary.""I won't let you get hurt.""But-""Nina, I promise. I won't let you get hurt."I looked into his eyes and saw they were serious. He wasn't teasing, he wasn't impatient, he wasn't annoyed and he didn't think I was a scaredy-cat. He was just...serious."Okay," I whispered."
Author: Kristen Ashley
27. "Nina stared at the woman who had raised her and saw the truth at last. Her mother was a lioness. A warrior. A woman who'd chosen a life of hell for herself because she wanted to give up and didn't know how. And with that small understanding came another, bigger one. Nina suddenly saw her own life in focus. All these years, she'd been traveling the world over, looking for her own truth in other woman's lives. But it was here all along, at home with the one woman she's never even tried to understand. No wonder Nina had never felt finished, never wanted to publish her photographs of the woman. Her quest had always been leading up to this moment, this understanding. She's been hiding behind the camera, looking through the glass, trying to find herself. But how could she? How could any woman know her own story until she knew her mother's?"
Author: Kristin Hannah
28. "One of the world's most tiresome questions is what object one would bring to a desert island,because people always answer "a deck of cards" or "Anna Karenina" when the obvious answer is "a well equipped boat and a crew to sail me off the island and back home where I can play all the card games and read all the Russian novels I want."
Author: Lemony Snicket

32. "Já na mezidruhové randení moc nejsem, to tedy lituju. Když se po mne nekdo sápe, nikdy nevím, jestli me chce, nebo má jenom hlad."Chytil se za hrud a zatváril se ublížene. "To bolelo. Když už tedy nechcete prijmout moje pozvání, zasloužím si aspon znát vaše jméno. Koneckoncu, práve jste mi zlomila srdce."Dlouho jsem odhodlane mlcela, ale pod nátlakem jeho pohledu nakonec podvolila. "Alex.""To je zkrácenina pro Alexandra?""Alexandrina," opravila jsem ho.Usmá se, jako by mi ušel nejaký vtip. Než jsem se ho stihla zeptat na duvod, sdelil mi ho sám. "To je puvodne recké jméno, znamená to ochránce lidí."Kdo by to jen rekl, dokonce i moje jméno me predurcovalo k tomu, být soucástí téhle uhozené, nikdy nekoncící války. "Já jsem Devon," predstavil se, šarmantne se pri tom uklonil a natáhl ke mne ruku."To je recky neco jako, šílene rád otravuju lidi a nevím, kdy prestat?" zeptala jsem se kousave a nechala jeho ruku bez povšimnutí."
Author: Lucie Adamová
33. "Dana daydreamed of one day being able to set her agenda at B.Altman with the same courage and tenacity as the woman who was now driving the VW while speaking animatedly about her travel plans for the near future. She would be journeying to India in search of exotic merchandise for the store's Indian extravaganza, a lavish event planned by Ira Neimark and Dawn Mello to compete with Bloomingdale's Retailing as Theater movement. The movement was the brainchild of Bloomingdale's Marvin Traub, who staged elaborate presentations such as China: Heralding the Dawn of a New Era. Typical extravaganzas featured fashion, clothing, food, and art from various regions of the world."I'll bring back enough items to make Bloomingdale's blush!" Nina said confidently. "And I'm not just talking sweaters, hats, and walking sticks. I'll stop first in the Himalayas and prowl the Landour Bazaar."Lynn Steward ~ A Very Good Life"
Author: Lynn Steward
34. "Svakog dušmanina lakše se riješiti i bolje s njime voditi borbu nego s domacom izdajicom. Uvijek je bilo tako i ostat ce. Lakše je baciti preko praga nasilnika koji ti provali u kucu nego onoga koji sjedi u toplom zapecku, a u srcu nosi izdajstvo i smišlja kako bi prodao razbojniku i vlastitu krv."
Author: Marija Jurić Zagorka
35. "It often struck Nina that women who seemed capable of only limited mental tasks in most situations could retain information regarding other peoples weight for years, sometimes decades. Unlike genuine idiots savants, they couldn't tell you that December 13, 1972 had fallen on a Wednesday. But they could often tell you, within a pound or two, how much you'd weighed that week."
Author: Marissa Piesman
36. "Atravessar fronteiras era um desejo meu desde menina, incluindo as fronteiras mentais, não apenas as geográficas. Conhecer, descobrir, avançar, aprender: verbos que de certa forma me definem, todos relacionados com o exercício da liberdade."
Author: Martha Medeiros

Author: Mary Schmich

Author: Matt Smith
39. "No había rastros de humanidad en su rostro, excepto en sus ojos, era una cabeza totalmente canina; y no había rastros de animalidad en su cuerpo excepto por el pelaje y la cola, era un cuerpo casi completamente humano. Como dije, una fusión perfecta y armónica entre ambas criaturas. La única forma en que hubiera podido explicarle a alguien cómo era con exactitud, y lo perfectamente construido que parecía, sólo lo hubiera logrado tomándole una foto. -- Johanna Miller"
Author: Melisa S. Ramonda
40. "Mahmutova žena je blagoslov božji, ali ne znam da li bih bio zadovoljan da je Tijana kao ona. Možda bi mi smetalo kad bi bila tako jednostavna. Možda je Tijanina osjetljivost znak i bolest punije misli i življeg osjecanja. Bol i misao oduzimaju nam bezbrižan smijeh."
Author: Meša Selimović
41. "Maybe it's not, in the end, the virtues of others that so wrenches our hearts as it is the sense of almost unbearably poignant recognition when we see them at their most base, in their sorrow and gluttony and foolishness. You need the virtues, too—some sort of virtues—but we don't care about Emma Bovary or Anna Karenina or Raskolnikov because they're good. We care about them because they're not admirable, because they're us, and because great writers have forgiven them for it."
Author: Michael Cunningham
42. "Tri godine trajao je period pretvaranja u kanadskoga drzavljanina. To je vrijeme po misljenju tamosnjih vlasti dovoljno da covjek zaboravi na sve razloge koji ga vuku kuci i da prihvati kako kuca vise ne postoji ili je barem nema tamo gdje si rodjen."
Author: Miljenko Jergović
43. "De ce iubim femeilePentru ca le zambesc tuturor copiilor mici care trec pe langa ele. Pentru ca merg pe strada drepte, cu capul sus, cu umerii trasi inapoi si nu raspund privirii tale cand le fixezi ca un maniac. Pnetru ca-ti spun <> exact atunci cand te iubesc mai putin, ca un fel de compensatie. Pnetru ca scriu fie extrem de delicat, colectionand mici observatii si schitand subtile nuante psihologice, fie brutal si scatologic ca nu cumva sa fie suspectate de literatura feminina. Pnetru ca sunt extrordinare cititoare, pentru care se scriu trei sferturi din poezia si proza lumii. Pnetru ca din ele-am iesit si-n ele ne-ntoarcem, si mintea noastra se roteste ca o planeta greoaie, mereu si mereu, numai in jurul lor."
Author: Mircea Cărtărescu
44. "I think Nina Simone has had an amazing journey. She was spicy and she had attitude and she didn't care, she wanted her money in a paper bag and don't mess with me and I've been doing some research on that so."
Author: Nia Long
45. "If ever you feel lost, terrified, alone, emotionally and physically drained...when you feel like depression has overpowered you, and that the world itself, has devoured you...just remember that you are not alone, you are loved, you are a beautiful story waiting to be told." -Nina Jean Slack, Once Lost, Forever Found (Vol. #1)"
Author: Nina Jean Slack
46. "Poetry is one of my guilty pleasures and I want to thank you poets for providing me with beautiful words that I can devour and selfishly indulge in any time I want. ?-Nina Jean Slack"
Author: Nina Jean Slack
47. "Kaloka! Ito ba ang Pilipinas na gustong iligtas nina Lola Sepa at Emil? Iligtas mula saan? Kung sarili nga ayaw nitong iligtas! Ang gusto lang ng mga ito'y kumain, tumae, mag-Glutathione, saka pumunta sa weekend markets, mag-malling para makalibre ng air-con, mag-text ng corny jokes, sumingit sa pila ng bigas, saka umasa ng suwerte sa lotto o sa TV! Kapag may bagyo o lindol o anumang problema'y laban pero susuko din agad at makakalimot, o kaya ay magma-migrate! Ilang taon na ba ang bansang ito pero bakit hanggang ngayo'y wala pa ring pinagkatandaan?"
Author: Ricky Lee
48. "As he left, I peered at Sarah Mapps and her mother, the way they grabbed hands and squeezed in relief, and then at Nina, at the small exultation on her face. She was braver than I, she always had been. I cared too much for the opinions of others, she cared not a whit. I was cautious, she was brash. I was a thinker, she was a doer. I kindled fires, she spread them. And right then and ever after, I saw how cunning the Fates had been. Nina was one wing, I was the other."
Author: Sue Monk Kidd
49. "It had been in a Paris house, with many people around, and my dear friend Jules Darboux, wishing to do me a refined aesthetic favor, had touched my sleeve and said, "I want you to meet-" and led me to Nina, who sat in the corner of a couch, her body folded Z-wise, with an ashtray at her heel, and she took a long turquoise cigarette holder from her lips and joyfully, slowly exclaimed, "Well, of all people-" and then all evening my heart felt like breaking, as I passed from group to group with a sticky glass in my fist, now and then looking at her from a distance (she did not look...), and listening to scraps of conversation, and overheard one man saying to another, "Funny, how they all smell alike, burnt leaf through whatever perfume they use, those angular dark-haired girls," and as it often happens, a trivial remark related to some unknown topic coiled and clung to one's own intimate recollection, a parasite of its sadness."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "Anna Karenina, Anna Karenina, Anna Karenina" when asked the three best novels of all time."
Author: William Faulkner
