I wanted my degree, but, you know, that came sort of easy. I wanted a business, and we've done that. And the whole time… hell, even before we had our first class together… before our first study group, before we got dorm assignments… all I wanted was you."
Author: Amy Lane

"This is how I recognize an authentic poet: by frequenting him, living a long time in the intimacy of his work, something changes in myself, not so much my inclinations or my tastes as my very blood, as if a subtle disease had been injected to alter its course, its density and nature. To live around a true poet is to feel your blood run thin, to dream a paradise of anemia, and to hear, in your veins, the rustle of tears."
Author: Emil Cioran

In fact, and I who am about to die have the right to say it without incurring the charge of immodesty, the three best minds in San Quentin from the Warden down were the three that rotted there together in solitary. And here at the end of my days, reviewing all that I have known of life, I am compelled to the conclusion that strong minds are never docile. The stupid men, the fearful men, the men ungifted with passionate rightness and fearless championship - these are the men who make model prisoners. I thank all gods that Jake Oppenheimer, Ed Morrell, and I were not model prisoners."
Author: Jack London
17. "By the Lord, Reule better bed that Wench soon! Mara is going to start thinking her p***y is made of gold if I keep frequenting her bed like this! -Rye "Drink of Me"
Author: Jacquelyn Frank
18. "With 'Django Unchained,' when you're dealing with slavery, it's like a gymnastics routine with the highest amount of difficulty. Quentin Tarantino is not going to do a movie that's just going to lay there and be safe. There's going to be twists and flips."
Author: Jamie Foxx

Author: Lev Grossman
24. "As a teenager in Brooklyn Quentin had often imagined himself engaged in martial heroics, but after this he knew, as a cold immutable fact, that he would do anything necessary, sacrificing whatever or whomever he had to, to avoid risking exposure to physical violence. Shame never came into it. He embraced his new identity as a coward. He would run in the other direction. He would lie down and cry and put his arms over his head or play dead. It didn't matter what he had to do, he would do it and be glad."
Author: Lev Grossman
25. "Quentin had an obsolete sailing ship that had been raised from the dead. He had psychotically effective swordsman and an enigmatic witch-queen. It wasn't the Fellowship of the Ring, but then again he wasn't trying to save the world from Sauron, he was trying to perform a tax audit on a bunch of hick islanders…"
Author: Lev Grossman
26. "It wasn't a place of worship, they explained, with a note of whinnying condescension, but a community devoted to the most absolute possible expression, or incarnation--or perhaps realization was an even better word--of the incomprehensibly complex but infinitely pure sylvan values of centaurhood, which Quentin's fallen human brain could never hope to grasp. There was something distinctly German about the centaurs."
Author: Lev Grossman

Author: Lev Grossman
28. "Look, who's the talking bear here?" Quentin snapped. "Is it you? Are you the talking fucking bear? All right. So shut the fuck up."
Author: Lev Grossman

Author: Lucy Liu
30. "I like the way Quentin Tarantino creates a scene using a series of close-ups or showing very cool images of a person or people walking on some ordinary street in slow motion. I wish I could achieve that kind of slow-motion effect in manga, but it's rather difficult to draw; the only things we can play with are tones of black and white."
Author: Masashi Kishimoto
31. "The thing is, making movies as an actress, you learn so many things. Like when you're making a movie with Quentin Tarantino you're just at the best cinema school ever."

32. "The first time he consulted me, I caught a glimpse of my salvation. He made a gift to me of the very thing that I - too corrupted by my bourgeoise blood to renounce it- could not be, merely by tacitly agreeing to be my client, simply by frequenting my waiting room on a regular basis, with his ordinary docile manner of a patient who makes no fuss. Later he gave me another gift, magnanimously, that of his conversation. Worlds hitherto unknown to me suddenly appeared, and the very thing that my flame had always coveted so ardently, and had despaired of ever obtaining, was suddenly mine, thanks to him, vicariously."
Author: Muriel Barbery
33. "Then all of a sudden, Quentin Tarantino comes along and puts a song from 40 years ago in one of his films and they've suddenly discovered you. That was a real gift that Quentin gave me."

Author: Quentin Crisp
35. "You guys like to tell jokes and giggle and kid around, huh? Giggling like a bunch of young broads in a school yard. Well, let me tell you a joke: Five guys sitting in a bull pen, San Quentin. Wondering how the fuck they got there. What'd we do wrong? What should we've done? What didn't we do? It's your fault, my fault, his fault. All that bullshit. Finally, someone comes up with the idea, wait a minute, while we were planning this caper, all we did was sit around and tell fucking jokes. Got the message?"
Author: Quentin Tarantino

Author: Saoirse Ronan
38. "I forbid you from frequenting taverns, public houses, or other establishments of vice."She snorted in amusement. "Establishments of vice? That's a rather puritanical view of things, isn't it? I assure you, I was quite safe.""You were with Ralston!" he said, as though she were simpleminded."He was perfectly respectable," she said, the words coming out before she remembered that the carriage ride home was anything but respectable."Imagine—my sister and the Marquess of Ralston together. And he turns out to be the respectable one," Benedick said wryly, sending heat flaring on Callie's cheeks, but not for the reason he thought. "No more taverns."

But, as your elder brother, the head of the family, and the earl," he stressed the last words, "I forbid you from frequenting taverns, public houses, or other establishments of vice."
Author: Sarah MacLean

Author: Seanan McGuire
41. "It was May's idea," Quentin added."I'm sure it was," I said. Sylvester started circling. I dropped into a defensive position. "I'm not really comfortable with this, May.""Cope," she said."Maybe an audience will make you shape up," Sylvester said, and lunged.I parried. "Maybe an audience will distract me and get me gutted.""Let's see some carnage!" hollered May, pumping her fist in the air."This isn't professional wrestling!" I snapped, trying to hit Sylvester's ankle. He blocked, turning my thrust aside and nearly disarming me. "And I swear if you shout ‘take it off,' I am coming over there.""Take what off?" asked Sylvester."Nothing, Your Grace," Quentin and I said in unison."
Author: Seanan McGuire
42. "See, Quentin, that's why you should wear a cup before trying to assassinate someone."

Author: Seanan McGuire
44. "No walking! No standing, no bending, no moving, no accessing the Shadow Roads, nothing.

'Now sit."
Author: Seanan McGuire

Author: Seanan McGuire

Author: Terry Pratchett
47. "Quentin Schultze says that we have become like tourists who are so enamored by our mode of transportation that we cruise through nation after nation largely indifferent to the people and the cultures around us. We have our passports filled with the little stamps telling people just how many places we've been, but what is the purpose of being in places if we have not experienced them? And what is the purpose of knowing people if we do not care to know them on anything more than a surface level? The trend today is toward these fleeting, surface-level interactions"
Author: Tim Challies
48. "Byproduct of the circulation of commodities, human circulation considered as a form of consumption, tourism comes down fundamentally to the freedom to go and see what has become banal. The economic planning of the frequenting of different places is already in itself the guarantee of their equivalence. The same modernization that has withdrawn the element of time from journeying, has also withdrawn the reality of space."
Author: Tom McDonough
49. "Quando l'ombra del telaio si disegnò sulle tendine era tra le sette e le otto del mattino, e fui di nuovo dentro il tempo, sentendo il ticchettio dell'orologio. Era quello del nonno e quando me lo diede il babbo disse: Quentin, eccoti il mausoleo di ogni speranza e desiderio; è molto probabile, purtroppo, che te ne serva anche tu per ottenere il reducto absurdum di ogni umana esperienza, che non farà per i tuoi bisogni individuali più di quanto fece per i suoi o per quelli di suo padre. Non te lo do perché tu possa ricordarti del tempo, ma perché ogni tanto tu possa dimenticarlo per un attimo e non sprecare tutto il tuo fiato nel tentativo di vincerlo. Perché, disse, le battaglie non si vincono mai. Non si combattono nemmeno. L'uomo scopre, sul campo, solo la sua follia e disperazione, e la vittoria è un'illusione dei filosofi e degli stolti."
Author: William Faulkner
50. "Quentin did not answer, staring at the window; then he could not tell if it was the actual window or the window's pale rectangle upon his eyelids, though after a moment it began to emerge. It began to take shape in its same curious, light, gravity-defying attitude--the once-folded sheet out of the wistaria Mississippi summer, the cigar smell, the random blowing of the fireflies. "The South," Shreve said. "The South. Jesus. No wonder you folks all outlive yourselves by years and years and years." It was becoming quite distinct. He would be able to decipher the words soon, in a moment; even almost now, now, now."I am older at twenty than a lot of people who have died," Quentin said."
