3. "Galen and Rayna are close."I gasp. "How do you know that? I can't feel them." My heart turns traitor, beating like I just ran five miles uphill.

And from the feel of things, Galen is flittering that cute little fin of his like crazy to get back to you. Rayna must be riding on his back.""You can tell what she's doing?""I can tell how fast she's moving. No one can swim as fast as Galen, Rayna included. He must be pretty impatient to see you.""Yeah.

We all want things to stay the same, David; settle for living in misery because we're afraid of change, of things crumbling to ruins. Then I looked around in this place [the augusteum], at the chaos its endured – the way it has been adapted, burned, pillaged and found a way to build itself back up again. And I was reassured that maybe my life hasn't been so chaotic; tt's just the world that is and the only real trap is getting attached to any of it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation… We must always be prepared for endless waves of transformation. Both of us deserve better than staying together because we're afraid we'll be destroyed if we don't."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

"La existencia, como al personaje de la Náusea, se me aparecía como un insensato, gigantesco, gelatinoso laberinto; y como él, sentí la ansiedad de un orden puro, de una estructura de acero pulido, nítido y fuerte. ... Y así, nuestras búsquedas, nuestros proyectos o trabajos nos quitan de ver los rostros que luego se nos aparecen como los verdaderos mensajeros de aquello mismo que buscábamos, siendo a la vez, ellos, las personas a quienes nosotros debiéramos haber acompañado o protegido."
Author: Ernesto Sabato

Let us think of the answer of Oedipus."

Because I kind of already am."

That's what people want to be close to. But if so, it's not like a child's, for a child's soul is delicate, its flickering flame needs no more than the opening of a door onto the world to blow it out. Nothing can destroy Abel's light. In his presence one never feels wicked, only foolish. That darkness which in solitude can seem so powerful, occasionally even intoxicating, seems risible in his company."

Whatever you feel about it, remember it will never last, so make the best out of it."
Author: Nael Gharzeddine

35. "In good company there is never such discourse between two, across the table, as takes place when you leave them alone. In good company, the individuals merge their egotism into a social soul exactly coextensive with the several consciousnesses there present. No partialities of friend to friend, no fondnesses of brother to sister, of wife to husband, are there pertinent, but quite otherwise. Only he may then speak who can sail on the common thought of the party, and not poorly limited to his own. Now this convention, which good sense demands, destroys the high freedom of great conversation, which requires an absolute running of two souls into one."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

39. "Rest in Peace?' Why that phrase? That's the most ridiculous phrase I've ever heard! You die, and they say ‘Rest in Peace!' …Why would one need to ‘rest' when they're dead?! I spent thousands of years of world history resting. While Agamemnon was leading his ships to Troy, I was resting. While Ovid was seducing women at the chariot races, I was resting. While Jeanne d'Arc was hallucinating, I was resting. I wait until airplanes are scuttling across the sky to burst out onto the scene, and I'm only going to be here for a short while, so when I die, I certainly won't need to rest again! Not while more adventures of the same kind are going on."
Author: Roman Payne
40. "I was on South Bank one day by the Royal Festival Hall. It was a sunny day with a bright blue sky. I was looking up at a train crossing the Hungerford Bridge. Through the train I could see the sky successively framed by each window as the carriage passed. Each window moving quickly forward and away held briefly a rectangle of blue. The windows passing, the blue remained."
Author: Russell Hoban
41. "The self may be royal, but it hungers like a pauper. [...] And it is a king imperilled, a sovereign forever at the mercy of many insurgents, of fear, for example, and anxiety, of isolation and bewilderment, of a strange unspeakable pride and a wild, silent shame. The self is beset by secrets, secrets eat at it constantly, secrets will tear down its kingdom and leave its sceptre broken in the dust."
Author: Salman Rushdie

Author: Tahir Shah

Author: Tanya Huff

49. "This self now as I leant over the gate looking down over fields rolling in waves of colour beneath me made no answer. He threw up no opposition. He attempted no phrase. His fist did not form. I waited. I listened. Nothing came, nothing. I cried then with a sudden conviction of complete desertion. Now there is nothing. No fin breaks the waste of this immeasurable sea. Life has destroyed me. No echo comes when I speak, no varied words. This is more truly death than the death of friends, than the death of youth."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "Piracy has destroyed the domestic market."
Author: Zhang Yimou
