1. "Right you guessed the rising morrowAnd scorned to tread the mire you must:Dust's your wages, son of sorrow,But men may come to worse than dust. Souls undone, undoing others,-Long time since the tale began.You would not live to wrong your brothers:Oh lad, you died as fits a man."
Author: A.E. Housman

Author: Ava Gray
3. "The WeaverMy life is but a weavingbetween my Lord and me;I cannot choose the colorsHe worketh steadily.Oft times He weaveth sorrowAnd I, in foolish pride,Forget He sees the upper,And I the underside.Not til the loom is silentAnd the shuttles cease to fly,Shall God unroll the canvasAnd explain the reason why.The dark threads are as needfulIn the Weaver's skillful hand,As the threads of gold and silverIn the pattern He has planned."
Author: Benjamin Malachi Franklin
4. "I could understand the moon leaning across a bar on skid rowand asking for a drink, but I couldn't understand anything about myself,I was murdered, I was shit, I was a tentful of dogs,I was poppies mowed down by machine-gun fireI was a hotshot wasp in a webI was less and less and still reaching forsomething, and I thought of her corny remarka night or so ago:You have wounded eyes."
Author: Charles Bukowski
5. "Caly swiat poszatkowany oplotkami i ograniczeniami szybkosci, podzielony na strefy, oblozony podatkami i regulacjami prawnymi, a wszyscy zarejestrowani, pod kontrola, znani z adresu i nagran. I gdzie tu miejsce na przygode, no chyba ze taka, która da sie kupic? Na kolejce górskiej. W kinie. Przeciez wiadomo, ze dinozaury nie pozra dzieci. Publicznosc na pokazach próbnych wykluczyla mozliwosc wszelkich powaznych katastrof. A skoro szansa na realna katastrofe, realne ryzyko, nie istnieje, nie mamy tez szansy na realne zbawianie. Realne porywy. Realne podniecenie. Na frajde. Odkrycie. Innowacje.Prawo, dzieki któremu jestesmy bezpieczni, to samo prawo skazuje nas na nude.Nie majac dostepu do prawdziwego chaosu, nigdy nie osiagniemy prawdziwego pokoju.Oby nie bylo gorzej, bo lepiej nie bedzie."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk

Author: David Gaider

9. "Ah, drink againThis river that is the taker-away of pain,And the giver-back of beauty!In these cool wavesWhat can be lost?--Only the sorry costOf the lovely thing, ah, never the thing itself!The level flood that lavesThe hot browAnd the stiff shoulderIs at our temples now.Gone is the fever,But not into the river;Melted the frozen pride,But the tranquil tideRuns never the warmer for this,Never the colder.Immerse the dream.Drench the kiss.Dip the song in the stream."
Author: Edna St. Vincent Millay
10. "The sacred rowan is a woman born long, long ago, a woman whose refusal to see love cost first her lover's life, then the lives of her family, her clan, her people.But not her own life. Not quite.In pity and punishment she was turned into an undying tree, a rowan that weeps only in the presence of transcendent love; and the tears of the rowan are blossoms that confer extraordinary grace upon those who can see them.When enough tears are wept, the rowan will be free. She waits inside a sacred ring that can be neither weighed or measured nor touched. She waits for love that is worth her tears.The rowan is waiting still."
Author: Elizabeth Lowell
11. "For the author as for God, standing outwith his creation, all times are one; all times are now. In mine own country, we accept as due and right – as very meet, right, and our bounden duty – the downs and their orchids and butterflies, the woods and coppices, ash, beech, oak, and field maple, rowan, wild cherry, holly, and hazel, bluebells in their season and willow, alder, and poplar in the wetter ground. We accept as proper and unremarkable the badger and the squirrel, the roe deer and the rabbit, the fox and the pheasant, as the companions of our walks and days. We remark with pleasure, yet take as granted, the hedgerow and the garden, the riot of snowdrops, primroses, and cowslips, the bright flash of kingfishers, the dart of swallows and the peaceful homeliness of house martins, the soft nocturnal glimmer of glow worm and the silent nocturnal swoop of owl."
Author: G.M.W. Wemyss
12. "Redwyne does not give a fig, he thought, but Rowan looks fit to gag."
Author: George R.R. Martin
13. "Wisnie byly wyborne, a Gerda glodna, wiec jadla, usmiechajac sie z zadowoleniem, gdy staruszka zlotym grzebieniem czesala jej zlote wlosy. Czesala je dlugo, w dziwnym blasku czerwonych i niebieskich szybek, a Gerda zapomniala o Kaju, babce i rodzicach, bo grzebien byl zaczarowany, staruszka zas byla wrózka."
Author: Hans Christian Andersen
14. "(...) kwiaty ranily przechodzace obok twarze. Poniewaz byly tak piekne, poniewaz nie stracily blasku krajobrazu, lasów i bloni, i lak, napawaly jedynie smutkiem. Nalezaly do kraju, a kraj byl zawsze przeciwienstwem panstwa. Kwitly rok w rok, nie potrzebowaly niczego, aby rosnac. Ten upór piekna tuz obok biedy jawil mi sie czasami jako obojetnosc, ignorowanie ludzi.Jesli w panstwie przezycie stalo sie sensem istnienia, piekno kraju jest bólem."
Author: Herta Müller
15. "How do you find your mount, Miss de Lacy?" Amy found it a slug. It was clear Rowanford had taken her caution too seriously. This horse would be ideal for a non-equestrian grandmother. "I feel very safe," she said. "Excellent. I shall take good care of you, Miss de Lacy. Have no fear." Amy sighed and wished there was a convenient piece of furniture to heft to prove she was not as fragile as she appeared."
Author: Jo Beverley

Author: Julie Kagawa
17. "You're an idiot, half-breed," she taunted, as I kicked snow at her. She dodged easily. "Rowan's too good for you, and he's experienced. Most everyone, fey and mortal boys included, would give their teeth to have him to themselves for a night. Try him. I guarantee you'll like it.""Not interested," I snapped, glaring at her with narrowed eyes. My butt still stung, making my words sharp. "I'm done playing games with faery princes. They can go to hell, for all I care. I'd rather strip naked for a group of redcaps.""Ooh, if you do, can I watch?"
Author: Julie Kagawa

20. "I guess I work in small ways. It's kind of like this story someone told me, about a guy on the beach in Mexico throwing starfish in the sea. Thousands had washed ashore. Someone asked him why - 'Why are you wasting your time, when there are so many? You can't possibly make a difference.'""I know that story! The man threw another one back, and said -""'Made a difference to that one!'" Rowan finishes."
Author: Kirsten Hubbard
21. "Toby liked to say he chose not to be impulsive. As if being impulsive were something you consciously decide. When I look at Starling, with her turquoise turban and wet knot of hair, and at Rowan, with his stack of cheap string anklets, I think: Impulsive isn't something you choose. It's something you are. Like gay, or freckled or bipolar. Something I pretend to be but am not. Not really. Not deep down."
Author: Kirsten Hubbard

Author: Lauren DeStefano

Author: Lauren DeStefano

"-Prosze okazac legitymacje – powtórzyla obywatelka.-Slicznotko moja... - zaczal tkliwie Korowiow.-Nie jestem slicznotka – przerwala mu obywatelka.-O, jakze tego zaluje – rozczarowanym glosem powiedzial Korowiow, a nastepnie mówil dalej. - No cóz, jesli sobie pani tego nie zyczy, to nie musi byc pani slicznotka, chociaz byloby to nader przyjemne."

27. "„Gdyby tak mozna odmlodzic czlowieka, jak drzewo. Sciac z niego zle wspomnienia, zeskrobac caly ból, wszelkie rozczarowania, jak martwa tkanke; poobcinac bledy, glupie decyzje, pomylki, przeswietlic mysli. I zeby to mozna bylo robic po kazdej zimie, zeby sie w nowy rok wchodzilo czystym i niewinnym. Wiadomo przeciez – któras z kolejnych zim nas zabije."
Author: Olga Tokarczuk

29. "Widzenie i tak jest w wiekszosci oszustwem. Tak naprawde nie widzimy nic, w wysokiej rozdzielczosci jest tylko pare stopni tam, gdzie skupia sie oko. Reszta pola to mgla – tylko swiatlo i ruch. Ruch powoduje zogniskowanie. A nasze oczy caly czas lataja. To sie nazywa „ruchy sarkadyczne". Obraz sie rozmazuje, bo ruch jest za szybki, zeby mózg nadazyl z integrowaniem klatek, wiec miedzy przystankami oko po prostu sie wylacza. Rejestruje tylko te izolowane stop-klatki, ale mózg wycina puste kadry i montuje material, dajac mózgowi... zludzenie ciaglosci. (…) I wiesz co jest naprawde niesamowite? Jesli cos porusza sie tylko podczas tych przerw, mózg po prostu to ignoruje. To cos jest niewidzialne."
Author: Peter Watts

We'll split it between us, adding on to our kingdoms...and from there, we can go anywhere. We could rule half this world together—all of this world—you and me. Kingdom after kingdom would fall to us..."
Author: Richelle Mead
33. "The White GoddessAll saints revile her, and all sober menRuled by the God Apollo's golden mean -In scorn of which we sailed to find herIn distant regions likeliest to hold herWhom we desired above all things to know,Sister of the mirage and echo.It was a virtue not to stay,To go our headstrong and heroic waySeeking her out at the volcano's head,Among pack ice, or where the track had fadedBeyond the cavern of the seven sleepers:Whose broad high brow was white as any leper's,Whose eyes were blue, with rowan-berry lips,With hair curled honey-coloured to white hips.The sap of Spring in the young wood a-stirWill celebrate with green the Mother,And every song-bird shout awhile for her;But we are gifted, even in NovemberRawest of seasons, with so huge a senseOf her nakedly worn magnificenceWe forget cruelty and past betrayal,Heedless of where the next bright bolt may fall."
Author: Robert Graves

Stefan seemed excited by the prospect of Finn's employment. 'If Finn's to be an idiot, may I be an idiot, too?'"

37. "And beyond the timeless meadows and emerald pastures, the rabbit holes and moss-covered oak and rowan trees and the "slippy sloppy" houses of frogs, the woodland-scented wind rushed between the leaves and blew around the gray veil that dipped below the fells, swirling up in a mist, blurring the edges of the distant forest. (View from Windermere in the Lake District)"
Author: Susan Branch

40. "Hasse, duzy ciemny chlopiec, piec razy silniejszy ode mnie, mial zwyczaj klasc mnie na lopatki na kazdej przerwie tego pierwszego roku szkolnego. Poczatkowo stawialem silny opór, ale to nie sluzylo niczemu, kladl mnie i tak, triumfujac. W koncu wynalazlem metode, która powodowala jego rozczarowanie: calkowite rozluznienie. Kiedy sie zblizal, udawalem, ze Ja Sam ucieklem pozostawiajac jedynie trupa, szmate pozbawiona zycia, która mógl sobie przygniatac do woli. (...)Zastanawiam sie nad tym, jakie znaczenie metoda przemiany siebie samego w pozbawiona zycia szmate miala dla mnie w pózniejszym zyciu."
Author: Tomas Tranströmer
41. "There are passages and doorsAnd Realms that lie unseen. There are Roads both wide and narrowAnd no avenue between.Doors Remain closed for thoseWho in sad vanity yet hide.Yet when Belief is chosen,The key appears inside.What is lived now will soon pass, And what is not will come to Be.The Door Within must open,For one to truly see.Do you see?Believe and enter."
Author: Wayne Thomas Batson
42. "Walesamy sie samotnie po kosmosie i z rozczarowania i z bólu zadajemy sobie nawzajem gwalt."
