Author: Agatha Christie

Author: André Aciman

Author: Dylan McDermott

It was a huge horse-chestnut tree in full bloom bound for the Champs Elysees, strapped now into a long truck and simply shaking with laughter - like a lovely person in an undignified position yet confident none the less of being lovely. Looking at it with fascination, Rosemary identified herself with it, and laughed cheerfully with it, and everything all at once seemed gorgeous."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
16. "She was about twenty-four, Rosemary guessed - her face could have been described in terms of conventional prettiness, but the effect was that it had been made first on the heroic scale with strong structure and marking, as if the features and vividness of brow and coloring, everything we associate with temperament and character had been molded with a Rodinesque intention, and then chiseled away in the direction of prettiness to a point where a single slip would have irreparably diminished its force and quality. With the mouth the sculptor had taken desperate chances - it was the cupid's bow of a magazine cover, yet it shared the distinction of the rest."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
17. "Rosemary bubbled with delight at the trunks. Her naivete responded whole-heartedly to the expensive simplicity of the Divers, unaware of its complexity and its lack of innocence, unaware that it was all a selection of quality rather than quantity from the run of the world's bazaar; and that the simplicity of behavior also, the nursery-like peace and good will, the emphasis on the simpler virtues, was part of a desperate bargain with the gods and had been attained through struggles she could not have guessed at."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
18. "Only the image of a third person, even a vanished one, entering into his relation with Rosemary was needed to throw him off his balance and send through him waves of pain, misery, desire, desperation.

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
19. "Osjetila se pomalo izdanom i tužnom, ali u taj mah na vidiku se pojavio golemi pokretni predmet. Bilo je to veliko stablo kestena u punom cvatu koje su vozili na Champs-Elysees, privezano na velikom kamionu, koje se naprosto treslo od smijeha - kao kakva ljupka osoba koja se našla u nedostojanstvenom položaju, ali svejedno zna kako nije ništa izgubila od svoje ljupkosti. Promatrajuci stablo s uživanjem, Rosemary se poistovjetila s njime, i veselo se s njime smijala, i sve se odjednom opet cinilo prekrasnim."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
20. "Saying good-by, Dick was aware of Elsie Speers' full charm, aware that she meant rather more to him than merely a last unwilingly relinquished fragment of Rosemary. He could possibly have made up Rosemary - he could never have made up her mother."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
21. "Dick se vozio kroz kišu, opsjednut i preplašen, noseci u sebi strast i muku mnogih ljudi, i svjestan kako ništa nece biti jednostavno. Rosemary je otvorila vrata puna osjecaja za koje nitko ne zna. Bla je sada, kako se to katkad kaže, kao "zvijer u kavezu" - vec se punih dvadeset i cetiri sata nije uspjela srediti i potpuno ju je zaokupilo poigravanje s kaosom, kao da joj je sudbina kakva slagaljka - prebrajala je probitke, prebrajala je nade..."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
22. "Rosemary je s gnušanjem slušala tu baljezgariju; da bi se takva groteska cijenila, bio je potreban mnogo robusniji smisao za humor od njezinog. Taj mali covjek sa svojom prenosivom tvornicm, njegove neiskrene oci, koje bi s vremena na vrijeme zakolutale pokazujuci bijele polukrugove straha; Abeova spodoba, lica zbrckana koliko god dopuštaju njegove lijepe košcate crte - sve je to bilo od nje daleko kao bolest."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
23. "Carmelia Montiel, a twenty-year-old virgin, had just bathed in orange-blossom water and was strewing rosemary leaves on Pilar Ternera's bed when the shot rang out. Aureliano José had been destined to find with her the happiness that Amaranta had denied him, to have seven children, and to die in her arms of old age, but the bullet that entered his back and shattered his chest had been directed by a wrong interpretation of the cards."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
24. "I liked old time music but what i meant by that was the period from the 1930s through the 60s, nothing before and little after. Performers like fats waller, Sinatra, billie holiday, louis armstrong, rosemary clooney, ella, sammy Davis Jr, dean martin... If the lyrics weren't stupid. Words were important."
Author: Jeffery Deaver
25. "As I held onto Rosemary Telesco for dear life, we both knew the truth. She was going off to camp and eventually, private school. We were on different roads, she and me. Two ships that passed in Sheep Meadow."
Author: Jennifer Flackett
26. "Secret ceremonies in which malevolent men and women cloaked in hooded robes, hiding behind painted faces and chanting demonic incantations while inflicting sadistic wounds on innocent children lying on makeshift alters, or tied to inverted crosses, sounds like the stuff of which B-grade horror movies are made. Some think amoral religious cults only populate the world of Rosemary's Baby, but don't exist in real life. Or, do they? Ask Jenny Hill."
Author: Judy Byington
27. "He will spit you and roast you with rosemary, and we will all sample your flesh tonight. Tomorrow you will be shat out into the snow.Your diplomacy is bold and edgy, sir."
Author: Kevin Hearne

"His head was thrown back, his chestheaving, and the look on his face was more indicative of pain thanpleasure.Rosemary snatched her fingers back, certain she'dmisunderstood the technique somehow.But he whimpered piteously and she realized, no, she couldn'thave misunderstood. Because (a) she was a genius, and (b) it justwasn't that complicated"
Author: Louisa Edwards

Author: Margaret Whiting
30. "I found a few springs of rosemary and returned. Ignoring the collective sigh when I appeared, I stripped off the leaves and handed them to Loren.He sniffed them in suspicion. "What's this?"I guess it would take more than my word for them to trust me, "Rosemary." No glimmer of recognition. "It's to make your stew taste better. Don't you know the basic herbs and spices?""No. I took this job in self-defence. Quain burns everything. Belen thinks jerky is all we need to survive. Flea's idea of good meal is something that hasn't been in garbage can first. And Kerrick poisoned us---""Not on purpose." Kerrick said. "The meat looked done."
Author: Maria V. Snyder

33. "Agatha surveys the garden, its rows of crinkled spring cabbages and beanstalks entwining bowers of hawthorn and hazel. The rosemary is dotted with pale blue stars of blossom and chives nod heads of tousled purple. New sage leaves sprout silver green among the brittle, frost-browned remains of last year's growth. Lily of the valley, she thinks, that will be out in the cloister garden at Saint Justina's by now."
Author: Sarah Bower
34. "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember."
Author: William Shakespeare
