4. "To the eyes of the American soldiers who drove past, I looked no different from the women around me; and as I thought of it, who could say I was any different? If you no longer have leaves, or bark, or roots, can you go on calling yourself a tree? "I am a peasant," I said to myself, "and not a geisha at all any longer." It was a frightening feeling to look at my hands and see their roughness. To draw my mind away from my fears, I turned my attention again to the truckloads of soldiers driving past. Weren't these the very American soldiers we'd been taught to hate, who had bombed our cities with such horrifying weapons? Now they rode through our neighborhood, throwing pieces of candy to the children."
Author: Arthur Golden
5. "I suppose I knew on an intellectual level that graves weren't especially made for getting out of. I mean, you start with a hermetically sealed casket and then you dump six feet of dirt on top of it. Over time the earth gets compacted, which can't make it easy to dig through. So even if you're a very angry and determined zombie, you've kind of got your work cut out for you just escaping from the grave.Which was, I suppose, why we got hit with an initial wave of zombie bugs, birds and rodents. I bet some people would say if you've never picked undead mosquitoes out of your teeth, you've never lived. Under that definition, I'd be just as happy to have not lived, thanks."
Author: C.E. Murphy

Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Fue como si esos pocos minutos hubiesen sido creados sólo para nosotros y lo único que pudiéramos hacer fuese mirarnos el uno al otro. Era como si el estuviera viendo mi cara por primera vez. Parecía confundido y al mismo tiempo complacido. Exactamente igual que yo."
Author: Cecelia Ahern

I'm going to help them."
Author: Cinda Williams Chima

"They rode out on the round dais of the earth which alone was dark and no light to it and which carried their figures and bore them up into the swarming stars so that they rode not under but among them and they rode at once jaunty and circumspect, like thieves newly loosed into that dark electric, like young thieves in a glowing orchard, loosely jacketed against the cold and ten thousand worlds for the choosing."
Author: Cormac McCarthy

20. "Qui pourrait écrire le dialogue des saints? Un Shakespeare frappé d'innocence ou un Dostoievski exilé dans quelque Sibérie céleste. Toute ma vie je roderai dans les parages des saints...Il fut un temps où l'on pouvait s'adresser n'importe quand à un Dieu accueillant qui entrerrait vos soupirs dans son néant. Inconsoles, nous le sommes aujourd'hui faute d'avoir à qui confesser nos tourments. Comment douter que ce monde ait été autrefois en Dieu? L'Histoire se partage entre un autrefois où les hommes se sentaient attirés par le néant vibrant de la Divinité et un aujourd'hui où le rien du monde est privé de souffle divin."
Author: Emil Cioran
21. "To the non-combatants and those on the periphery of action, the war meant only boredom or occasional excitement, but to those who entered the meat grinder itself the war was a netherworld of horror from which escape seemed less and less likely as casualties mounted and the fighting dragged on and on. Time had no meaning, life had no meaning. The fierce struggle for survival in the abyss of Peleliu had eroded the veneer of civilization and made savages of us all."
Author: Eugene B. Sledge

26. "Nobody really knew anything. People lived; they went here and there about the earth and rode through forests; so much seemed to challenge or to promise, and so many sights to stir our longing: an evening star, a blue harebell, a lake half-covered in green reeds, the eyes of beasts and human eyes; and always it was as though something would happen, something never seen and yet sighed for, as though a veil would be pulled back off the world; till the feeling passed, and there had been nothing."
Author: Hermann Hesse

28. "Walter had never liked cats. They'd seemed to him the sociopaths of the pet world, a species domesticated as an evil necessary for the control of rodents and subsequently fetishized the way unhappy countries fetishize their militaries, saluting the uniforms of killers as cat owners stroke their animals' lovely fur and forgive their claws and fangs. He'd never seen anything in a cat's face but simpering incuriosity and self-interest; you only had to tease one with a mouse-toy to see where it's true heart lay...cats were all about using people"
Author: Jonathan Franzen

30. "Listening to the debates about public schools on the Christian Right, one hears plenty of opposing opinions and a great deal of confusion. Some want to change the schools, others want to leave them. But the smart money seems to know what it is doing. It provides support for programs like the Good News Club, which slowly erode the support for public education in the country at large and in their own constituency in particular. And then it lays the groundwork for dismantling public education in favor of a private system of religious education funded by the state."
Author: Katherine Stewart

Author: Larry McMurtry
34. "Malinalli, como Quetzalcóatl, ao confrontar-se com o seu lado obscuro ganhou consciência da sua luz. A sua vontade de ser una com o cosmos fez com que os limites do seu corpo desaparecessem. Os seus pés, em contacto com a água inundada pela luz da lua, foram os primeiros a experimentar a mudança. Deixaram de a conter. O seu espírito fundiu-se com o da água e derramou-se pelo ar. A sua pele expandiu-se ao máximo, permitindo-lhe mudar de forma e integrar-se com tudo o que a rodeava. Foi nardo, foi laranjeira, foi pedra, foi aroma de copal, foi milho, foi peixe, foi ave, foi sol, foi lua. Abandonou este mundo."
Author: Laura Esquivel

Author: Lloyd Alexander

"So you decided to give me a moment of your time.""I felt duty bound to pay my respects to the newest MacGregor first."As if on cue,Justin strode over to arrange Mac in the crook of Daniel's arm. Gennie watched the fierce giant turn into a marshmellow. "There's a laddie," he crooned, holding out his glass to Shelby,then chucking the baby under the chin. When the baby grabbed his thick finger,he preened like a rooster. "Strong as an ox." He grinned foolishly at the room in general, then zeroed in on Grant. "Well, Campbell, so you've come. You see here," he began, jiggling the baby, "why the MacGregor's could never be conquered. Strong stock.""Good blood," Serena murmured, taking the baby from the proud grandfather."
Author: Nora Roberts
40. "A fellow told me one about Wembley yesterday," I said, to help on the cheery flow of conversation. "Stop me if you've heard it before. Chap goes up to deaf chap outside the exhibition and says, "Is this Wembley?" "Hey?" says deaf chap. "Is this Wembley?" says chap. "Hey?" says deaf chap. "Is this Wembley?" says chap. "No, Thursday," says deaf chap. Ha, ha, I mean, what?"The merry laughter froze on my lips. Sir Roderick sort of just waggled an eyebrow in my direction and I saw that it was back to the basket for Bertram. I never met a man who had such a knack of making a fellow feel like a waste-product."
Author: P.G. Wodehouse

The sun hit her eyes and reflected a flaming red color, her pupils narrowing.I should have been terrified, but instead I just felt exhausted and really, really annoyed.

I mean to make her too furious to think. I mean to crack that façade so she dreams of vengeance day and night, poisoning her every decision.""You always fashioned yourself as the Empire's harshest Fist, didn't you, Korbolo Dom? As if cruelty's a virtue…"

45. "The Howeitat spread out along the cliffs to return the peasants' fire. This manner of going displeased Auda, the old lion, who raged that a mercenary village folk should dare to resist their secular masters, the Abu Tayi. So he jerked his halter, cantered his mare down the path, and rode out plain to view beneath the easternmost houses of the village. There he reined in, and shook a hand at them, booming in his wonderful voice: 'Dogs, do you not know Auda?' When they realized it was that implacable son of war their hearts failed them, and an hour later Sherif Nasir in the town-house was sipping tea with his guest the Turkish Governor, trying to console him for the sudden change of fortune."

46. "For us hunting wasn't a sport. It was a way to be intimate with nature, that intimacy providing us with wild unprocessed food free from pesticides and hormones and with the bonus of having been produced without the addition of great quantities of fossil fuel. In addition, hunting provided us with an ever scarcer relationship in a world of cities, factory farms, and agribusiness, direct responsibility for taking the lives that sustained us. Lives that even vegans indirectly take as the growing and harvesting of organic produce kills deer, birds, snakes, rodents, and insects. We lived close to the animals we ate. We knew their habits and that knowledge deepened our thanks to them and the land that made them."
Author: Ted Kerasote

"Fairy tales for adult readers remained popular throughout Europe well into the 19th century — particularly in Germany, where the Brothers Grimm published their massive collection of German fairy tales (revised and edited to reflect the Brothers' patriotic and patriarchal ideals), providing inpiration for novelists, poets, and playrights among the German Romantics. Recently, fairy tale scholars have re–discovered the enormous body of work produced by women writers associated with the German Romantics: Grisela von Arnim, Sophie Tieck Bernhardi, Karoline von Günderrode, Julie Berger, and Sophie Albrecht, to name just a few."
Author: Terri Windling
