1. "As Whitney came to realize, the primary problem with being a popular high school student, even with all of its perks – some classmates will do your bidding; you may be invited to more parties; you might find your fashions meticulously copied, your actions obsequiously praised, you can sit at a prime spot in the cafeteria; you might even be treated, as Whitney said to me after one party, "like a mini-celebrity" – is that high school ends."

2. "Rakyat yang nasionalis hendaknya belajar menghemat energi. Pemimpin dan pemerintahan yang nasionalis hendaknya memikirkan cara-cara penghematan, bukan mengeksploitas sisa sumber daya alam yang kita miliki. Kembangkan sistem transportasi massal yang memadai, sehingga jumlah kendaraan di jalan raya berkurang. Dengan sendirinya pemakaian bahan bakar akan berkurang.Hentikan pembangunan menara-menara perkantoran dan apartemen-apartemen tinggi di perkotaan. Biarlah penghijauan di kota-kota besar tetap terpelihara. Pembangunan di daerah-daerah terpencil lebih diperhatikan. Biarlah orang di desa mendapatkan pekerjaan di desanya sendiri. Sehingga mereka tidak perlu menambah beban metropolis. Pembangunan harus merata, harus horizontal, tidak vertikal."
Author: Anand Krishna
3. "Erah Graesin had a silky, low voice. It was reputed to be sexy, but then, everything about Terah Graesin was supposed to be sexy. Kylar didn't see it. Oh, she was pretty. She had a wide mouth, full lips, and the kind of figure that was unattainable for the majority of noblewomen who spent their days doing nothing more strenuous than issuing orders to the servants. Maybe it was that she was a little too self-consciously good-looking. She wore lots of makeup—expertly applied and subtle, but lots—and had tweezed her eyebrows down to tiny lines. The truth was, she held herself like he ought to admire her, and it pissed him off. What pissed him off more was that to look her in the eye with his disguise, he had to stare straight at her admittedly perky breasts. Dammit, why were breasts so intriguing?"

"And luminous.""Oh, you're that one." Magnus sounded disappointed. If Clary hadn't been so upset, she would have laughed. "I suppose you'd better come up."
Author: Cassandra Clare
7. "So I heard on the news that the Tard died and your house burnt down. I bet secretly you're relieved you don't have to live with him anymore in that dump."The whole commotion in the hallway immediately stopped, as if her words had been spoken over the intercom. It became so quiet that you could hear Mina's and Nan's sharp intakes of breath. Mina wasn't prone to violence and was about to think of something mean to say back to Savannah, but she didn't have the chance to, because Nan Taylor, perky, happy-go-lucky Nan Taylor, pulled back her fist and punched Savannah in the face. Savannah wasn't prepared, and fell to the floor. Nan stood over her shocked face and yelled, "No way was he handicapped, or different. He was the most special, coolest and smartest kid ever. And the world is a much sadder place because he's not here. And don't you ever, EVER, insult him again!" Nan shook with anger.The hall was full of students and teachers, and one by one they started to clap."

She loved eating all the things she had missed while away, jollof rice cooked with a lot of oil, fried plantains, boiled yams, but she longed, also, for the other things she had become used to in America, even quinoa, Blaine's specialty, made with feta and tomatoes. This was what she hoped she had not become but feared that she had: a "they have the kinds of things we can eat" kind of person."

The problem is, for many of the overpaid leaders, we know that they took the money and perks and didn't offer protection to their people.

We only accuse them of greed and excess when we feel they have violated the very definition of what it means to be a leader."

"I hope it's Four's landscape.""Why?" I ask. The question comes out too incredulous. I bite my lip and wish I could take it back."Looks like someone had a mood swing." She rolls her eyes.

For a second, his eyes shift to mine. His stare is unfeeling.Then he looks away."

Manusia hari ini memang mengetahui banyak perkara, khasnya tentang kehidupan jasadi insan dan makhluk syahadah (yang nampak) yang lain, tetapi banyak perkara penting yang meliputi kehidupan ruhani dan akhlak tidak diketahuinya. Ini adalah kerana konsep ilmunya amat sempit. dia telah mengeluarkan hakikat penting seperti Tuhan, malaikat, roh diri manusia sendiri dan lain-lain yang diketahui hanya melalui autoriti manusia terpilih, daripada ruang ilmu dan tumpuannya. Autoriti manusia terpilih bermaksud ilmu yang diperoleh melalui para rasul, nabi dan orang yang berakar dalam ilmu."

Tämän herkän kielen rumin ilmaus on naisen sukuelintä tarkoittava diabolinen manaus."
