1. "Apples of HesperidesGlinting golden through the trees,Apples of Hesperides!Through the moon-pierced warp of nightShoot pale shafts of yellow light,Swaying to the kissing breezeSwings the treasure, golden-gleaming,Apples of Hesperides!.Far and lofty yet they glimmer,Apples of Hesperides!Blinded by their radiant shimmer,Pushing forward just for these;Dew-besprinkled, bramble-marred,Poor duped mortal, travel-scarred,Always thinking soon to seizeAnd possess the golden-glisteningApples of Hesperides!.Orbed, and glittering, and pendent,Apples of Hesperides!Not one missing, still transcendent,Clustering like a swarm of bees.Yielding to no man's desire,Glowing with a saffron fire,Splendid, unassailed, the goldenApples of Hesperides!"

I may hate how you've treated my love and kindness, I may be disappointed because I gave you all I had and was treated far less than I deserved.

I will learn to stop giving away my valuable energy, time and thoughts knowing you cannot care for it."
Author: Bindu

Author: Charles H. Spurgeon

I will read it, knowing that he is the substance of it,—that he is the proof of this book as well as the writer of it; the sum of this Scripture as well as the author of it. That is the way for true students to become wise! You will get at the soul of Scripture when you can keep Jesus with you while you are reading."

"I believe I could drink you dry."

She woke to pain, her eyes and mouth flashing open in a wordless scream as two strong fangs pierced her neck. A body lay across hers, warm and strong as she felt the life being sucked out of her.

He had warned her, planting a tormenting kiss on her lips before resuming his feed."

Here we are safe! This is freedom! This is joy!"

Have you recently suffered head trauma?""Not to my knowledge.""Could be coming. Any second."
Author: J.D. Robb

"Enclosed within his artificial creation, man finds that there is "no exit"; that he cannot pierce the shell of technology again to find the ancient milieu to which he was adapted for hundreds of thousands of years. . . . In our cities there is no more day or night or heat or cold. But there is overpopulation, thralldom to press and television, total absence of purpose. All men are constrained by means external to them to ends equally external. The further the technical mechanism develops that allows us to escape natural necessity, the more we are subjected to artificial technical necessities."
Author: Jacques Ellul

I bury my hands into my pocketsand walk faster to beat off the bitterness, but I can't seem to keep my hands warm. I stop, cup my hands against my mouthand exhale. Vapor rises and hoversover my head like words we never say anymore. When you decided to forego a third round of a walking darkness,we sat together. Remember — we held hands. Your hands were cold, but I could always warm them up for you. When the nurse woke meto tell me that your time was near,we were together.Remember — I held your hand,but as much as I tried, I couldn't warm it up. (sigh)I pull down my hat,tighten the collar of my jacket,and start walking to the other side of the street,where strangers are standing sentry against sunlit wallsto ward off the cold."

"And you ruined it with a quote from Pride and Prejudice." I grin. "What? I thought we were purposefully being cliché." "Maybe next time, quote the book and not the film." My eyebrow arches and I recite theatrically, "You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope." I shake my head. "Doesn't have the same ring to it, darling."
Author: Krista Ritchie
28. "On one side, across the channel, stretched the silvery sand shore of the bar; on the other extended a long, curving beach of red cliffs, rising steeply from the pebbled coves. It was a shore that knew the magic and mystery of storm and star. There is a great solitude about such a shore. The woods are never solitary-they are full of whispering, beckoning, friendly life. But the sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning of some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity. We can never pierce its infinite mystery-We may only wander, awed and spell-bound, on the outer fringe of it. The woods call to us with a hundred voices, but the sea has one only-a mighty voice that drowns our souls in its majestic music. The woods are human, but the sea is in the company of the archangels."
Author: L.M. Montgomery

Author: Mary Pickford

Author: Meg Cabot
34. "I ceased the search to listen again, what the problem was. What's going on at home? Why was Luccas calling out Jane's name? What happened? Why could I hear him without connecting directly to him? I shook my head, but screams pierced through. I moved the shelf on its side, a loud crashing that startled the men outside. Falling to my knees, I covered my ears to them. My head banged against the metal and stayed there. "What in the name of Hera am I going to do?" I asked the air. The screams stopped but for how long? How long would silence be until they resumed? I raised my head, gently pulling my hands away and listened. Silence. Where were the men chasing me? Did they give in and go home? No, that would have been too easy. Saain would slay each man for leaving a traitor alive."

An old man on a hill, a blind man between two pillars, the God Man on a cross. Glory is sacrifice, glory is exhaustion, glory is having nothing left to give. Almost. It is death by living. The earth shook. The roof came down. The world changed. The armies fled. That Moses kept his hands up."
Author: N.D. Wilson

And any man who feels as I do about these words must be my drinking companion."
Author: Salman Rushdie
40. "In the peculiar fate of people that makes them fat and rich, when this happens very swiftly there is the menace of the dreamy state that plunders their reality. Let's say that anyway old age and death would come, so why shouldn't the passage be comfortable? But this proposal doesn't make a firm mind, in the strange area where things swim too fast. Against this trouble thought may be a remedy; force of person is another one, and money and big-scale lavishness, unpierceable concreteness, organizational deeds. So there are these various remedies and many more, older ones, but you don't actually have full choice among all the varieties, especially those older ones of the invisible world. Most people make do with what they have, and labor in their given visible world, and this has its own stubborn merit."
Author: Saul Bellow

(Jericho)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

45. "He pierced her with a look. "I thought we had an agreement. I keep my men away from your ladies, and you keep your distance from me. You're not holding your end of the bargain.""It's but a momentary interruption. Just this once.""Just this once?" He made a dismissive noise, rifling through papers. "What about just now in the church?""Very well, twice.""Try again." He stacked his papers and looked up, devouring her with his intent green gaze. "You invaded my dreams at least a half-dozen times last night. When I'm awake, you keep traipsing through my thoughts. Sometimes you're barely clothed. What excuse can you make for that?"She stammered to form a response, her tongue tripping against her teeth. "I . . . I would never traipse." Idiotic reply."Hm." He tilted his head and regarded her thoughtfully. "Would you saunter?"
Author: Tessa Dare
46. "Pierce through the livid face of a human being at certain moments as they ponder, look behind the facade, look into the soul, look into the darkness.

Author: Victor Hugo

"Listening (had there been any one to listen) from the upper rooms of the empty house only gigantic chaos streaked with lightning could have been heard tumbling and tossing, as the winds and waves disported themselves like the amorphous bulks of leviathans whose brows are pierced by no light of reason, and mounted one on top of another, and lunged and plunged in the darkness or the daylight (for night and day, month and year ran shapelessly together) in idiot games, until it seemed as if the universe were battling and tumbling, in brute confusion and wanton lust aimlessly by itself."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "How far your eyes may pierce I cannot tell.Striving to better, oft we mar what's well."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "The world, whatever we might think about it terrified by its vastness and by our helplessness in the face of it, embittered by its indifference to individual suffering—of people, animals, and perhaps also plants, for how can we be sure that plants are free of suffering; whatever we might think about its spaces pierced by the radiation of stars, stars around which we now have begun to discover planets, already dead? still dead?—we don't know; whatever we might think about this immense theater, to which we may have a ticket, but it is valid for a ridiculously brief time, limited by two decisive dates; whatever else we might think about this world—it is amazing."
Author: Wisława Szymborska
