1. "Rogue Squadron doesn't run. Unless we really, really have to.""No, this will be Wraith Squadron's mission.""We don't mind running. Even when we don't have to."
Author: Aaron Allston
2. "Quando cade un quadro. Quando ti svegli un mattino, e non la ami più. Quando apri il giornale e leggi che è scoppiata la guerra. Quando vedi un treno e pensi io devo andarmene da qui. Quando ti guardi allo specchio e ti accorgi che sei vecchio."
Author: Alessandro Baricco
3. "Colleague, given that I'm detached to go hunting bandits, I'd be grateful for the continued loan of your horses until we return. A squadron of cavalry could make all the difference when we're chasing around the forests after shadows.'Licinius gave him a jaundiced look. ‘You've got sticky fingers, young man. Every soldier that comes into contact with your cohort seems to end up as part of it. Hamian archers, borrowed cavalrymen. I'll even wager you that the half-century of legionaries Dubnus borrowed from the Sixth will end up in your establishment. And yes, you can extend the loan if you think it'll do you any good, and you can keep that decurion you promoted to command them."
Author: Anthony Riches
4. "Chorus of old men: If we give them the least hold over us, 'tis all up! their audacity will know no bounds! We shall see them building ships, and fighting sea-fights like Artemisia; nay if they want to mount and ride as cavalry, we had best cashier the knights, for indeed women excel in riding, and have a fine, firm seat for the gallop. Just think of all those squadrons of Amazons Micon has painted for us engaged in hand-to-hand combat with men."
Author: Aristophanes
5. "I'm the smartest man in the world. Once I wore a cape in public, and fought battles against men who could fly, who had metal skin, who could kill you with their eyes. I fought CoreFire to a standstill, and the Super Squadron, and the Champions. Now I have to shuffle through a cafeteria line with men who tried to pass bad checks. Now I have to wonder if there will be chocolate milk in the dispenser. And whether the smartest man in the world has done the smartest thing he could do with his life."
Author: Austin Grossman
6. "Pinto quadros por letras, por sinais"
Author: Cesário Verde
7. "Wars, wars, wars': reading up on the region I came across one moment when quintessential Englishness had in fact intersected with this darkling plain. In 1906 Winston Churchill, then the minister responsible for British colonies, had been honored by an invitation from Kaiser Wilhelm II to attend the annual maneuvers of the Imperial German Army, held at Breslau. The Kaiser was 'resplendent in the uniform of the White Silesian Cuirassiers' and his massed and regimented infantry...reminded one more of great Atlantic rollers than human formations. Clouds of cavalry, avalanches of field-guns and—at that time a novelty—squadrons of motor-cars (private and military) completed the array. For five hours the immense defilade continued. Yet this was only a twentieth of the armed strength of the regular German Army before mobilization.Strange to find Winston Churchill and Sylvia Plath both choosing the word 'roller,' in both its juggernaut and wavelike declensions, for that scene."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
8. "L'intimità si crea così. Prima si dà il miglior ritratto di se stesso, un prodotto splendente e rifinito, ritoccato di vanterie e falsità e umorismi. Poi diventano necessari i particolari e si dipinge un secondo ritratto e poi un terzo... In breve i lineamenti migliori si cancellano... e finalmente si rivela il segreto: i piani dei ritratti si sono mescolati e ci hanno tradito, e per quanto continuiamo a dipingere non riusciamo più a vendere un quadro."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
9. "No genuine Irishman could relax in comfort and feel at home in a pub unless he was sitting in deep gloom on a hard seat with a very sad expression on his face, listening to the drone of bluebottle squadrons carrying out a raid on the yellow cheese sandwich."
Author: Flann O'Brien
10. "O principal é não mentir. Quem mente para si mesmo e dá ouvido à sua própria mentira chega a tal extremo que não consegue ver nenhuma verdade em si ou naqueles que o rodeiam e, por conseguinte, perde completamente o respeito por si e pelos outros. (...) Quem mente a si próprio pode ser o primeiro a ofender-se. Às vezes, é tão agradável uma pessoa se ofender, não é verdade? O indivíduo sabe que ninguém o injuriou, que tudo não passa de simples invenção, que ele próprio mentiu e exagerou apenas para criar um quadro, para fazer de um grão uma montanha - sabe tudo e, no entanto, se ofende. Ofende-se a ponto se sentir prazer na ofensa e, desse modo, atinge o verdadeiro ódio..."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
11. "So rode the squadrons out against the grey steel foe, adding another dash of red to the sunset glow."
Author: Günter Grass
12. "Quadroon"
Author: Harriet Beecher Stowe
13. "I was commanding officer of a supersonic fighter squadron, F-8 Crusaders."
Author: James Stockdale
14. "Early June, Providence, Rhode Island, the sun up for almost two hours already, lighting up the pale bay and the smokestacks of the Narragansett Electric factory, rising like the sun on the Brown University seal emblazoned on all the pennants and banners draped up over campus, a sun with a sagacious face, representing knowledge. But this sun--the one over Providence--was doing the metaphorical sun one better, because the founders of the university, in their Baptist pessimism, had chosen to depict the light of knowledge enshrouded by clouds, indicating that ignorance had not yet been dispelled from the human realm, whereas the actual sun was just now fighting its way through cloud cover, sending down splintered beams of light and giving hope to the squadrons of parents, who'd been soaked and frozen all weekend, that the unseasonable weather might not ruin the day's activities."
Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
15. "Tudo isso formava o mais interessante quadro vivo da natureza, certamente muito superior aos nus criados pelos pintores, escultores ou quaisquer artistas, e que se compram a preços altíssimos; no entanto, tais visões são apreciadas soberanamente apenas por algumas pessoas que a natureza dotou do fogo da imaginação, e que são calorosamente dirigidas por um julgamento verdadeiro para as fontes, os originais da beleza, as criações inigualáveis da natureza, que estão bem acima das imitações da arte ou das possibilidades da riqueza de pagar-lhes o preço."
Author: John Cleland
16. "Noi tutti siamo esiliatientro lo cornici di uno strano quadro.Chi sa questo, viva da grande,Gli altri sono insetti."
Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
17. "Nos dias de hoje, ainda me acontece encontrar Musyne, casualmente, a cada dois anos ou quase, tal como a maioria das criaturas que no passado conhecemos muito bem. É o prazo de que precisamos, dois anos, para nos darmos conta, com uma só olhada, mas essa aí inenganável, como o instinto, das feiuras que um rosto, ainda que delicioso em seu tempo, acumulou.Ficamos como que hesitantes um instante à sua frente, e depois findamos por aceitá-lo tal como ele ficou, o rosto, com essa desarmonia crescente, abjeta, de todo o conjunto. Temos de dizer sim a essa cuidadosa e lenta caricatura burilada por dois anos. Aceitar o tempo, esse quadro de nós. Podemos então dizer que nos reconhecemos inteiramente (como uma nota de dinheiro estrangeira que hesitamos em pegar à primeira vista), que não nos enganamos de caminho, que de fato seguimos a verdadeira estrada, sem nos termos consertado, a infalível estrada durante mais dois anos, a estrada da podridão. E é só isso."
Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline
18. "I can kill with a single word. I can hurl a ball of fire into the midst of my enemies. I rule a squadron of skeletal warriors, who can destroy by touch alone. I can raise a wall of ice to protect those I serve. The invisible is discernible to my eyes. Ordinary magic spells crumble in my presence... But I bow in the presence of a master.-- Lord Soth to Raistlin Majere"
Author: Margaret Weis
19. "Heading into the race, the perception among political professionals and the press had been that the rival campaign squadrons were more or less evenly matched. But as the smoke cleared, a consensus quickly emerged that the Democrats had methodically been building an atomic clock while the Republicans were trifling with Tinkertoys. Chicago's mockery of Boston was hushed but withering."
Author: Mark Halperin
20. "...and then quite suddenly I found that I had no rider, that I had no weight on my back, and that I was alone out in front of the squadron."
Author: Michael Morpurgo
21. "When Galen was first courting Jessamy,' Raphael said with a brush of his thumb over her nipple when their lips parted, 'he began to teach flight skills to the little ones. Over time, it has become a tradition—Galen is always the one who gives basic flight instruction to the babes, and some, like Izak, never stop training with him.'The idea of Galen, with his wings akin to a northern harrier's, leading a squadron of babies—not all of whom could fly exactly straight—had Elena shaking her head. 'I'm sorry, I need to see to believe this. It's like you just told me the sky turns purple every Wednesday."
Author: Nalini Singh
22. "Ao contemplar uma pintura de grandes proporções, sentimo-nos empolgados por estar na presença de tudo ao mesmo tempo e queremos entrar no quadro. Quando estamos no meio de um volumoso romance, sentimos o estonteante prazer de estar num mundo que não conseguimos ver em sua inteireza. Para ver tudo temos de constantemente transformar os momentos separados em quadros mentais. É esse processo de transformação que torna a leitura de um romance uma tarefa mais pessoal, mais colaborativa que a contemplação de um quadro."
Author: Orhan Pamuk
23. "Honoria, you see, is one of those robust, dynamic girls with the muscles of a welter-weight and a laugh like a squadron of cavalry charging over a tin bridge. A beastly thing to have to face over the breakfast table. Brainy, moreover. The sort of girl who reduces you to pulp with sixteen sets of tennis and a few rounds of golf and then comes down to dinner as fresh as a daisy, expecting you to take an intelligent interest in Freud."
Author: P.G. Wodehouse
24. "It's never gone so far as me wishing I'd never done 'Quadrophenia,' but there was a time when I wouldn't talk about it because I wanted people to be interested in me for other things as well."
Author: Phil Daniels
25. "Io so perché sono un intellettuale, uno scrittore, che cerca di seguire tutto ciò che succede, di conoscere tutto ciò che se ne scrive, di immaginare tutto ciò che non si sa o che si tace; che coordina fatti anche lontani, che mette insieme i pezzi disorganizzati e frammentari di un intero coerente quadro politico, che ristabilisce la logica là dove sembrano regnare l'arbitrarietà, la follia e il mistero.Tutto ciò fa parte del mio mestiere e dell'istinto del mio mestiere.[...] Il potere e il mondo che, pur non essendo del potere, tiene rapporti pratici col potere, ha escluso gli intellettuali liberi - proprio per il modo in cui è fatto - dalla possibilità di avere prove e indizi."
Author: Pier Paolo Pasolini
26. "Delaware River Power Squadron is dedicated to boating safety through education and civic activities in several locations in Philadelphia while also serving the boating public throughout southern Pennsylvania, the Delaware River, and the Chesapeake Bay."
Author: Robert Brady
27. "We all laced together—a brothel madam, an English professor, a mute cook, a quadroon cabbie, and me, the girl carrying a bucket of lies and throwing them like confetti."
Author: Ruta Sepetys
28. "She raised her head and saw a squadron of fighter planes. She stretched her hand high as if she could grab hold and climb away from what she had done, from who she was."
Author: Sarah Sundin
29. "The mythology warped and twisted back along itself until Buffy Summers, the girl who once railed against the unfairness of being Chosen, looked at a squadron of girls who were just like she'd been and took away their right to Choose."
Author: Seanan McGuire
30. "Non ti colpevolizzare perché non conosci tutte le risposte. Non sempre è necessario sapere chi sei. Non è necessario avere il quadro completo, né sapere dove stai andando. A volte è sufficiente anche solo sapere cosa si farà dopo."
Author: Sophie Kinsella
31. "Later than usual one summer morning in 1984, Zoyd Wheeler drifted awake in sunlight through a creeping fig that hung in the window, with a squadron of blue jays stomping around on the roof. In his dreams these had been carrier pigeons from someplace far across the ocean, landing and taking off again one by one, each bearing a message for him, but none of whom, light pulsing in the wings, he could ever quite get to in time. He understood it to be another deep nudge from forces unseen, almost surely connected with the letter that had come along with his latest mental-disability check, reminding him that unless he did something publicly crazy before a date now less than a week away, he would no longer qualify for benefits. He groaned out of bed. Somewhere down the hill hammers and saws were busy and country music was playing out of somebody's truck radio. Zoyd was out of smokes."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
32. "Sim, devo ter sentido a pergunta sobre quais as formas de arte maiores e menores. Há uma corrente única de vida que atravessa todo o existente – incluídas portanto também as pedras. Mas tem sentido graduarem-se as formas que ela manifestar. Enquanto vida, ela é igual no homem ou numa minhoca. Mas diferencia-se pela sua complexidade. Não há menos arte, enquanto arte, numa tela de Rembrandt e numa cerâmica de Estremoz. Mas a complexidade de ambos fala uma voz diferente nesse ser complexo. E se compararmos um género de arte com outro? Um quadro com uma música ou um romance com um bailado, ou um filme com uma catedral? Onde se demarca a complexidade ou a carga humana que suportam? Qual deles diz mais? Qual deles diz melhor? Em que parte de nós isso se diferencia? Isso se afere? Não me perguntes. Porque a resposta está apenas no saldo que em ti ficou no que em ti existiu para elas. E ninguém sabe se o saldo maior não foi simplesmente o da música de um cego numa esplanada ao sol..."
Author: Vergílio Ferreira
33. "Per tutti questi secoli le donne hano avuto la funzione di specchi, dal potere magico e delizioso di riflettere raddoppiata la figura dell'uomo. [...]Perciò Napoleone e Mussolini insistono tanto enfaticamente sull'inferiorità delle donne, perché se esse non fossero inferiori cesserebbero di ingrandire loro. Questo serve in parte a spiegare la necessità che gli uomini spesso sentono delle donne. E serve a spiegare come li fa sentire inquieti la critica femminile; come a lei sia impossibile dir loro che il libro è brutto o il quadro difettoso, o cose del genere, senza provocare assai più dolore e suscitare assai più rabbia di quanta potrebbe suscitarne un uomo con la stessa critica. Perché se la donna comincia a dire la verità, la figura nello specchio rimpicciolisce; l'uomo diventa meno adatto alla vita."
Author: Virginia Woolf
34. "The admirals of his majesty's fleet are classed into three squadrons, viz. the red, the white, and the blue."
Author: William Falconer
35. "Of whatsoever number a fleet of ships of war is composed, it is usually divided into three squadrons; and these, if numerous, are again separated into divisions."
Author: William Falconer
36. "The admiral, or commander in chief of a squadron, being frequently invested with a great charge, on which the fate of a kingdom may depend, ought certainly to be possessed of abilities equal to so important a station and so extensive a command."
Author: William Falconer

As I brush my long, brown hair, the girl in the mirror with blue eyes too big for her head stares back at me. Wait...I don't have blue eyes! Then I realize I haven't been looking into the mirror. I've been staring at a poster of Kristen Stewart for five minutes. My own hair is actually fine."
