1. "Lindsey took my father's hand and watched his face for movement. My sister was growing up before my eyes. I listened as she whispered the words he had sung to the two of us before Buckley was born:Stones and bones;snow and frostseeds and beansand polliwogs.Paths and twigs, assorted kisses,We all who knowwho Daddy misses!His two little frogs of girls, that's who.They know where they are, do you, do you?When her eyes closed and they both slept silently together, I whispered to them:Stones and bones; snow and frost; seeds and beans and polliwogs. Paths and twigs, assorted kisses, We all know who Susie misses....."
Author: Alice Sebold
2. "Blake has always been a favorite, the lyrics, not so much the prophetic books, but I suppose Yeats influenced me more as a young poet, and the American, Robert Frost."
Author: Anne Stevenson
3. "Omul ordinar este preocupat sa-si omoare timpul, omul de spirit va sti intotdeauna cum sa si-l intrebuinteze. De aceea, jocul de carti a ajuns ocupatia predilecta in orice societate. Neavind idei de schimbat, oamenii schimba cartea la masa si-si cistiga banii unii altora. Cei care nu stiu nici atit, sau sint de-a dreptul prosti, bat darabana cu degetele-n masa.Tigarea inlocuieste, de asemenea, gindirea, atunci cind nu are ce stimula."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
4. "I read a book, am vortexed in with no escape; my face contorts, eyelids frost, breath comes short, body longs, heart stop-starts. Who's to say too much won't kill me? Who's to say I care?"
Author: Chila Woychik
5. "The jery, impeded walk of a man stuck in a turnstile, admitted, and stuck in a turnstile, admitted, and stuck in a turnstile. He said it was rheumatoid arthritis. It looked as likely to be cancer of the prostrate metastatising to his hips."
Author: Craig Raine
6. "Diindolylmethane (DIM)—This is a phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower. It shifts estrogen metabolism to favor the friendly or harmless estrogen metabolites. DIM can significantly increase the urinary excretion of the "bad" estrogens in as little as four weeks. The typical dose of DIM is 75–300 mg per day. Omega-3 Fatty Acids (fish oils)—These contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which has been reported in laboratory studies to help control estrogen metabolism and decrease the risk of breast cancer. Eating grass-fed organic beef also supplies these fats. I typically recommend 2,000 mg a day. Calcium d-glucarate—This natural compound is found in fruits and vegetables like apples, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage. Calcium d-glucarate inhibits the enzyme that contributes to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. It also reduces reabsorbed estrogen from the digestive tract."
Author: Daniel G. Amen
7. "And because our reason violently deters us from the brink, therefore, do we the more impetuously approach it. There is no passion in nature so demoniacally impatient, as that of him, who shuddering upon the edge of a precipice, thus meditates a plunge. To indulge for a moment, in any attempt at thought, is to be inevitably lost; for reflection but urges us to forbear, and therefore it is, I say, that we cannot. If there be no friendly arm to check us, or if we fail in a sudden effort to prostrate ourselves backward from the abyss, we plunge, and are destroyed."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
8. "N-are rost sa gândesti asupra mortii, decât pen-tru a o seca, pentru a o face exterioara. Atât de departe sa te fi afundat în ea, ca misterul ei sa-ti devina o semnificatie indiferenta, infinitul ei inexpresiv, vesnicia ei fada. Fa din scârba de moarte o diminuare a mortii si din frica de ea, un avânt absurd. Fugi de întelepciune; caci nu exista decât o întelepciune a mortii. Si cu cât cineva este mai întelept, cu atât priveste viata mai mult prin prisma mortii. Arunca moartea la marginile tale, ca sa mori cu acestea, si nu cu tine. Adora viata pentru infinitul motivelor care n-o sustin si dezgustate de moarte pâna la nemurire."
Author: Emil Cioran
9. "Covek gubi hrabrost. Veruje da se može navici na razocaranja. To nije tacno. Ona svaki put sve više bole tako da se covek uplaši. To je kao da se svaki put više opece. I svaki put sporije zarasta. Ne želim da se još koji put opecem."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
10. "De los muchos rostros que (como todos los seres humanos) Alejandra tenía, aquél era el que más le pertenecía a Martín; o, por lo menos, el que más le había pertenecido: era la expresión profunda y un poco triste del que anhela algo que sabe, por anticipado, que es imposible; un rostro ansioso pero ya de antemano desesperanzado, como si la ansiedad (es decir, la esperanza) y la desesperanza pudieran manifestarse a la vez. Y, además, con aquella casi imperceptible pero sin embargo violenta expresión de desdén contra algo, quizá contra Dios o la humanidad entera o, más probablemente, contra ella misma. O contra todo junto. No sólo de desdén, sino de desprecio y hasta de asco."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
11. "Novidades brotam em mim arranhando a face interna de meu rosto e caso eu não as exorcize via escritura irromperão em tentáculos através de minha boca e narinas, pálpebras e orelhas."
Author: Filipe Russo
12. "Prostia cea mai crasa, ca si geniul cel mai sublim, sunt deopotriva de folositoare destinului omenirii..."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
13. "Girl, he wants to dip you in Frosted Flakes and have you for breakfast. That's his favorite cereal, by the way." I...had no words for that."
Author: Gena Showalter
14. "Ladies bathed before noon, after their three o'clock naps, and by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum."
Author: Harper Lee
15. "Is now the time to legalize prostitution?"
Author: Harry Anderson
16. "The hands of those I meet are dumbly eloquent to me. The touch of some hands is an impertinence. I have met people so empty of joy, that when I clasped their frosty finger-tips, it seemed as if I were shaking hands with a northeast storm. Others there are whose hands have sunbeams in them, so that their grasp warms my heart. It may be only the clinging touch of a child's hand; but there is as much potential sunshine in it for me as there is in a loving glance for others. A hearty handshake or a friendly letter gives me genuine pleasure."
Author: Helen Keller
17. "Eu pot sa numar pe degete prietenii pe care-i am, dar cu ei vorbesc ca si cum as vorbi cu mine. Iar cu lume, în general, ce rost are sa stai de vorba daca nu spui ce gândesti?"
Author: Ileana Vulpescu
18. "Simpla constatare ca esti prost nu e dovada de inteligenta."
Author: Ionel Teodoreanu
19. "October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces."
Author: J.K. Rowling
20. "I wasn't sure exactly how prostitutes determined price, but if men bought hookers by the pound, these two would be doing okay."
Author: Janet Evanovich
21. "I'm saying you would not be comfortable with casual sex. Or whatever we're talking about here. The National Honor Society version of prostitution."
Author: Jennifer Echols
22. "Once, Lacy had been present at the birth of an infant that was missing half its heart. The family had known their child would not live; they chose to carry through with the pregnancy, in the hope that they could have a few brief moments on this earth with her before she was gone for good. Lacy had stood in a corner of the room as the parents held their daughter. She didn't study their faces; she just couldn't. Instead, she focused on the medical needs of that newborn. She watched it, still and frost-blue, move one tiny fist in slow motion, like an astronaut navigating space. Then, one by one, her fingers unfurled and she let go."
Author: Jodi Picoult
23. "Cinjenica je da sam jedinstven. Ne zanima me šta jedan covek može saopštiti drugim ljudima, kao i onaj filozof ja smatram da se veštinom pisanja ništa ne može preneti. Za dosadne i proste sitnice nema mesta u mome duhu, koji je predodreden za velike stvari."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
24. "My father laughed. "The magic of Summer," he said, "is unlike anything else. Imagine life, fertility, laughter, joy, ripening fruits and the smell of fresh bread baking in the morning. That is Summer magic."Forever Frost (Frost Series 2)"
Author: Kailin Gow
25. "My language is the common prostitute that I turn into a virgin."
Author: Karl Kraus
26. "W kazdej ze sztuk, i tanecznej, i kulinarnej, przechodzimy rózne etapy. Od fascynacji róznorodnoscia, przez chec wypróbowania absolutnie wszystkiego, wymieszania aromatów, eksperymentowania..... A kiedy juz sie napatrzymy i nawachamy, odwracamy sie od pozornej wykwintnosci i wracamy do tego, co najprostsze. Celebrujemy dobrze znane czynnosci i z niezachwiana pewnoscia siegamy po dobrze znane ingrediencje, odnajdujac harmonie w prostocie i naturalnym doborze smaków."
Author: Krzysztof Mazurek
27. "March came in that winter like the meekest and mildest of lambs, bringing days that were crisp and golden and tingling, each followed by a frosty pink twilight which gradually lost itself in an elfland of moonshine."
Author: L.M. Montgomery
28. "Donc, il est juste et vrai que la séparation du spirituel et du sensuel chez un homme est signe de sa virilité, et la séparation du spirituel et du sensuel chez une femme est signe de sa prostitution. Et il suffirait que toutes les femmes, ensemble, se virilisent, pour que le monde, le monde entier, se transforme en bordel.( from "Roman avec cocaïne" )"
Author: M. Ageyev
29. "The case for the humanities is not hard to make, though it can be difficult--to such an extent have we been marginalized, so long have we acceded to that marginalization--not to sound either defensive or naive. The humanities, done right, are the crucible within which our evolving notions of what it means to be fully human are put to the test; they teach us, incrementally, endlessly, not what to do but how to be. Their method is confrontational, their domain unlimited, their "product" not truth but the reasoned search for truth, their "success" something very much like Frost's momentary stay against confusion."
Author: Mark Slouka
30. "A good dog never dies. He always stays. He walks besides you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter's drawing near. His head is within our hand in his old way."
Author: Mary Carolyn Davies
31. "Something else that makes me angry is that I got too old to prostitute myself. I wasn't going to anyway but it was there, it was my Z plan."
Author: Mary Robison
32. "Sjetio sam se price, nena mi je pricala, davno, o karandolozu, crnom demonu, koji o Božicu sacekuje ljude na mracnim raskršcima, i popne im se na leda, smrdljiv i težak. Covjek ga nosi i posrce pod težinom, zagušen smradom, obamro od straha, a karandoloz ga pita: jesam li težak? Covjek stenje i kaže ono što misli: težak si. Karandoloz postane još teži. Ujutru nadu covjeka mrtva. Ali ko odgovori: nisi težak, spašce se, jer karandoloza odmah nestane, i covjek je slobodan. Zbog te rijeci hrabrosti, zbog rijeci prkosa. Docnije sam mislio da je to prica o životu: ako se tužimo kako nam je teško, klonucemo; ako kažemo životu: izdržacu, neceš me slomiti, muka postaje lakša."
Author: Meša Selimović
33. "...who is the pioneer of modern journalism? Not Hemingway who wrote of his experiences in the trenches, not Orwell who spent a year of his life with the Parisian poor, not Egon Erwin Kisch the expert on Prague prostitutes, but Oriana Fallaci who in the years 1969 to 1972 published a series of interviews with the most famous politicians of the time. Those interviews were more than mere conversations; they were duels. Before the powerful politicians realized that they were fighting under unequal conditions--for she was allowed to ask questions but they were not--they were already on the floor of the ring, KO'ed."
Author: Milan Kundera
34. "Slabiciunea noastra, a modernilor, e ca în loc sa gândim, gândurile ne gândesc pe noi. Noi stam molâi, femei adipoase, lubrice, nesatisfacute, ?i gândurile ne violenteaza, ne schingiuiesc, ne vând altora, iar noi nu protestam, ci le lasam sa ne stapâneasca, sa ne îndrepte pa?ii, sa ne prostitueze oricarui adevar care le satisface pe ele, nu pe noi."
Author: Mircea Eliade
35. "Sputavamo htijenja, želje, cežnje, sebe ili drugih radi. Samo je misao slobodna, široka i duboka onoliko kolike joj dimenzije možemo dati. To je utješno, to je lijepo. Jedino tebi, moja nesanice, tvojim tužnom djetinjim ocima i drhtavim trepuškama zabranjujem i plovidbu prostranstvima misli. Zabranjujem... A u zadnje vrijeme me svaki kucaj srca podsjeca kako davno skrivena misao na tebe gospodari svim ostalim mislima."
Author: Nura Bazdulj Hubijar
36. "Destept poti sa pari fara sa fii, dar daca nu esti un prost autentic, te dai de gol."
Author: Octavian Paler
37. "Los españoles también abusan de las expresiones fuertes. Frente a ellos el mexicano es singularmente pulcro. Pero mientras los españoles se complacen en la blasfemia y la escatología, nosotros nos especializamos en la crueldad y el sadismo. El español es simple: insulta a Dios porque cree en él. La blasfemia, dice Manchado, es una oración al revés. El placer que experimentan muchos españoles, incluso algunos de sus más altos poetas, al aludir a los detrimentos y mezclar la mierda con lo sagrado se parece un poco al de los niños que juegan con lodo. […] El "hijo de la chingada" es el engendro de la violación, del rapto o la burla. SI se compara esta expresión con la española, "hijo de puta", se advierte inmediatamente la diferencia. Para el español la deshonra consiste en ser hijo de una mujer que voluntariamente se entrega, una prostituta; para el mexicano, es ser fruto de una violación."
Author: Octavio Paz
38. "I soon came to understand that drink, tobacco and prostitutes were all great means if dissipating (even for a few moments) my dread for human beings. I came even to feel that if I had to sell every last possession to obtain these means of escape, it would be well worth it."
Author: Osamu Dazai
39. "It was not very long after this that there occurred the first of the mysterious events that rid us at last of the captain, though not, as you will see, of his affairs. It was a bitter cold winter, with long, hard frosts and heavy gales; and it was plain from the first that my poor father was little likely to see the spring. He sank daily, and my mother and I had all the inn upon our hands, and were kept busy enough without paying much regard to our unpleasant guest."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
40. "I cook better than you," Nick corrected absently. "I think monkeys can probably be taught to cook better than you.""I'd like to have a monkey that cooked for me," said Jamie. " I would pay him in bananas. His name would be Alphonse.""I agree, that would be awesome." Mae said. "People would come for dinner just to see the monkey chef.""You're raving," Nick said, defrosting chicken in the microwave. Mae was a bit impressed with how he seemed to look at the appliance and instantly comprehend its mysteries, when she'd been heating up ready-made meals for years by a method of pressing random buttons and hoping. " I know that's the only way Jamie communicates with people, but I expected better of you, Mavis.""We're cutting out the whole Mavis thing right now, Nick," Mae said warningly."How many bananas would be good payment for a monkey?" Jamie wanted to know. " I would want to pay Alphonse a fair wage."
Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
41. "Me encogí, presioné el rostro contra el volante e intenté respirar a pesar de mis pulmones.Me pregunté cuánto más podría durar esto. Quizás algún día, dentro de unos años, si el dolor disminuía hasta el punto de ser soportable, me sentiría capaz de volver la vista atrás hacia esos pocos meses que siempre consideraría los mejores de mi vida.Y ese día, estaba segura de que me sentiría agradecida por todo aquel tiempo que me había dado, más de lo que yo había pedido y más de lo que merecía. Quizá algún día fuera capaz de verlo de este modo."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
42. "After the torchlight red on sweaty facesAfter the frosty silence in the gardensAfter the agony in stony placesThe crying and the shoutingPrison and place and reverberationOf thunder of spring over distant mountainsHe was living is now deadWe who were living are now dyingWith a little patience"
Author: T.S. Eliot
43. "Rosto cupped laddybuck in one hand and grabed the back of my neck with the other pulling me in and kissing me right on the mouth. i should have punched him but his lips were soft and sweet. i will punch him next time. -beka after she realizes that rosto the piper is the new rouge"
Author: Tamora Pierce
44. "Curse him for being all tight muscle, with ivory skin and a mouth as soft as rose petals. Curse him for having hair as fair as the sun, and eyes as black as night. Curse him for having the grace of a cat and deft, cool hands. And now I am having the same argument on paper that I have in my own head on too many nights. I know my choice is sensible, but it isn't my common sense I think with, those times Rosto's stolen a kiss from me."
Author: Tamora Pierce
45. "I'm a frosted lemon coward"
Author: Tegan Quin
46. "Not drunk is he who from the floor - Can rise alone and still drink more; But drunk is They, who prostrate lies, Without the power to drink or rise."
Author: Thomas Love Peacock
47. "Hrabrost se ne boji zlocina i poštenje se ne boji vlasti."
Author: Victor Hugo
48. "Ce era asta? Ce însemna asta? Oare lucrurile puteau sa-?i întinda mâna, a?a, ?i sa te zgâl?âie; lama de cu?it putea sa taie? pumnul sa in?face? Nu exista o siguran?a? Nicio posibilitate sa înve?i pe de rost caile vie?ii? Nicio îndrumare, niciun adapost, totul era miracol, saltul din vârful unui pisc în spa?iu? E posibil ca asta sa fie via?a, chiar pentru oamenii mai în vârsta? Surprinzatoare, nea?teptata, necunoscuta?" O clipa avu impresia ca daca s-ar ridica amândoi, aici, acum, pe paji?te, ?i ar cere o explica?ie, de ce e via?a atât de scurta, de ce e atât de inexplicabila, daca ?i-ar formula întrebarile vehement, a?a cum ar fi îndrepta?ite sa o faca doua fiin?e umane bine o?elite, fa?a de care nimic nu trebuie ascuns, atunci frumuse?ea s-ar desfa?ura; vidul s-ar umple; arabescurile acelea de?arte s-ar împreuna într-o forma; daca ei doi ar striga destul de tare, doamna Ramsay s-ar întoarce. "Doamna Ramsay! striga cu glas tare. Doamna Ramsay!" Lacrimile i se rostogoleau pe obraji."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "...mere tabloid journalists, obliged to choose between the word of a Tory MP and that of a common prostitue, have been far too stupid to see that you can put your mortgage on the latter being true."
Author: William Donaldson
50. "My father's death from prostate cancer in 1993 was tragic. He never complained about pain. He was a fighter. By the time he was ready to die he wasn't able to die in the way that he wanted to, which seemed an outrage to me."
Author: Zoe Wanamaker
