1. "Women, I learned, adapted.At first..they seemed so fragile, so dependent on fathers and husbands and brothers and lovers. Gradually, though, I noticed how supple their lives were beneath the surface. Then I realized it was this flexibility that enabled them to survive...that sooner or later, by choice or by chance, most women faced the task of adapting to a future on their own. When at my most optimistic, I thought of it as independence; in darker moods, as survival. Either way women had to do it."

Anything, everything you need, I'll give you. Always. I promise. Just tell me one thing.""What?""That you want this, us." His voice dropped so low I could barely hear him. "That someday you'll love me."My hands began to tremble where they rested around his neck. "Ren, you know we're going to be together. We've both known that for a long time."He gave me a hard look. "That's not what I'm talking about.""Why are you asking me this?" I tried to pull back, but he held me against him.The glimmer of a smile appeared on his lips. "Why not?"My temper flared. "Are you trying to say that you love me?"I meant it as a challenge rather than a serious question, but his eyes seemed to catch fire."What do you think?" He touched his lips to mine, softly at first, gradually building pressure, parting them."

For the English, the ravens represented the colorful savagery of their ancestors, which, however, testified to the exalted state of civilization they had since achieved.

The romanticized past of Wales, predicated on survival, was fused with that of England, predicated on progress and conquest, to create a legend of Britain."

Having committed to the building of a marriage and family, all sorts of truths came forward and offered themselves."

We always aspire, I suppose, to being the chosen ones, and it is unlikely otherwise that we would be prepared to live out the entire course of an entire life, which, however short or long, gradually gets the better of us."

Stuck in the mirror are mementos from my childhood—red and yellow ribbons for various underachievements, a brown corsage from grad school graduation, a curling and faded picture of me petting a deer in Wisconsin—which is now over. I wandered through it and came out the other side. It's a stark feeling. Like getting to the last page of a book and seeing ‘The End.' Even if you didn't like the story that much, or your childhood, you read it, you lived it. And now it's over, book closed, that long-ago deer you petted in the Dells as dead as the one in The Yearling."

26. "... ni u najvecem gradu, nad cijim ulicama vise samo uska platna neba, prolece se ne da sakriti.... ima dva nacina da se bude veseo i sretan: imati mnogo novca ili imati veliko mišljenje o sebi.Ja mislim da se misao o Bogu zacela pred velikom pucinom ili usred pustinje, jer se samo tamo mogla steci ideja o neizmernom i vecnom. Zato ljudima rodenim pored mora pucina izaziva samo besnu ljubav za život.Tako je i Bog jedna istina srca. Zato ga nece ni ubiti razum, jer ga on nije sazdao...Umreti u lepoti, to izgleda vrhunac života na zemlji.... lepota se izgubila zato što je postala lepa za ceo svet.Ne kajem se za grehove koje sam ucinila, nego za one koje nisam ucinila.Ima nešto savršenije od lepote stvari u prirodi: to je sve ono što je ljudska misao dodirnula i ljudska lepota osvestila."
Author: Jovan Dučić

She is only human. She will grow old, wither and die, and her soul will flee to a place you cannot follow. And then, you will be left to wander the mortal world alone, until you yourself are only a memory.And after that-" the queen opened her empty fist "-nothing. Forever."

"The engineer's ready capitulation, however, did not hide from the poet's mother the sad realization that the adventure into which she had plunged so impulsively--and which had seemed so intoxicatingly beautiful--had no turned out to be the great, mutually fulfilling love she was convinced she had a full right to expect. Her father was the owner of two prosperous Prague pharmacies, and her morality was based on strict give-and-take. For her part, she had invested everything in love (she had even been willing to sacrifice her parents and their peaceful existence); in turn, she had expected her partner to invest an equal amount of capital of feelings in the common account. To redress the imbalance, she gradually withdrew her emotional deposit and after the wedding presented a proud, severe face to her husband."

42. "So how do people with autism see the world, exactly? We, only we, can ever know the answer to that one! Sometimes I actually pity you for not being able to see the beauty of the world in the same way we do. Really, our vision of the world can be incredible, just incredible ... When you see an object, it seems that you see it as an entire thing first, and only afterwards do its details follow on.... But for people with autism, the details jump straight out at us first of all, and then only gradually, detail by detail, does the whole image sort of float up into focus. Every single thing has its own unique beauty. People with autism get to cherish this beauty, as if it's a kind of blessing given to us."
Author: Naoki Higashida

His secret desire is to go to college and become a chemistry teacher, like you Mrs. Peterson."Brittney flashed me a triumpnet smile, thinking she won this round. Guess again, gringa. "This is Brittney Ellis," I say, all eyes focused on me. "This summer she went to the mall, bought new clothes to extend her wardrobe, and spent her daddy's money on plastic surgery to enhance her, ahem, assets. Her secret desire is to date a Mexicano before she graduates." Game on..."

Author: Vernon L. Smith
50. "Words, so much more readily remembered, gradually replace our past with their own. Our birth pangs become pages. Our battles, our triumphs, our trophies, our stubbed toes, will survive only in their descriptions; because it is the gravestone we visit, when we visit, not the grave. It is against the stone we stand our plastic flowers. Who wishes to bid good morrow to a box of rot and bones? We say a name, and only a faint simulacrum of its object forms itself (if any at all does)- forms itself in that grayless gray area of consciousness where we put imaginary maps and once heard music; where we hunt for lost articles and diagram desire."
Author: William H. Gass

Today's Quote

We would never call inexplicable little insights 'hunches,' for fear of drawing the universe's attention. But they happened, and you knew you had been in the proximity of one that had come through if you saw a detective kiss his or her fingers and touch his or her chest where a pendant to Warsha, patron saint of inexplicable inspirations, would, theoretically, hang."
