3. "And God was there like an island I had not rowed to,still ignorant of Him, my arms, and my legs worked,and I grew, I grew,I wore rubies and bought tomatoesand now, in my middle age,about nineteen in the head I'd say,I am rowing, I am rowingthough the oarlocks stick and are rustyand the sea blinks and rollslike a worried eyebal,but I am rowing, I am rowing,though the wind pushes me backand I know that that island will not be perfect,it will have the flaws of life,the absurdities of the dinner table,but there will be a doorand I will open itand I will get rid of the rat insdie me,the gnawing pestilential rat.God will take it with his two handsand embrace it"

4. "Sunflowers, Not Facing the Sun (A Poem) I stand tall As gracious as one could be Blooming to my bestAs slender as it touches my being Everyone else is facing the sun Bending towards its unfathomable galore They and I are both undoubtedlyGrown on the benevolence of life's essence The brighter side mercilessly feeding desires unboundBy daunting the "courage to know" with each spin Though, I am not able to face the sun the way they do Yet, I learn from the knowledge bred within me Beyond achievement markers, but an adverse ability An opportunity to exercise my special selfFrom the cherubic attire of my blessed soul To the unfathomable mystery the drape of this world hides That I, by not facing the sun Hunt the gems in the milieu of the human existence"

9. "The great gain was that I very soon became able to understand a great deal without (even mentally) translating it; I was beginning to think in Greek. That is the great Rubicon to cross in learning any language. Those in whom the Greek word lives only while they are hunting for it in the lexicon, and who substitute the English word for it, are not reading the Greek at all; they are only solving a puzzle. The very formula, "Naus means ship is wrong. Naus and ship both mean a thing, they do not mean one another. Behind Naus, as behind navis or naca, we want to have a picture of a dark, slender mass with sail or oars, climbing the ridges, with no officious English word intruding."
Author: C.S. Lewis
10. "The day succeeding this remarkable Midsummer night, proved no common day. I do not mean that it brought signs in heaven above, or portents on the earth beneath; nor do I allude to meteorological phenomena, to storm, flood, or whirlwind. On the contrary: the sun rose jocund, with a July face. Morning decked her beauty with rubies, and so filled her lap with roses, that they fell from her in showers, making her path blush: the Hours woke fresh as nymphs, and emptying on the early hills their dew-vials, they stepped out dismantled of vapour: shadowless, azure, and glorious, they led the sun's steeds on a burning and unclouded course."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
11. "I seem to wish to have some importanceIn the play of time. If not,Then sad was my mother's pain, my breath, my bones,My web of nerves, my wondering brain,to be shaped and quickened with such anticipationOnly to feed the swamp of space.What is deep, as love is deep, I'll haveDeeply. What is good, as love is good,I'll have well. Then if time and spaceHave any purpose, I shall belong to it.If not, if all is a pretty fictionTo distract the cherubim and seraphimWho so continually do cry, the leastI can do is to fill the curled shell of the worldWith human deep-sea sound, and hold it toThe ear of God, until he has appetiteTo taste our salt sorrow on his lips.And so you see it might be better to die.Though, on the other hand, I admit it mightBe immensely foolish."
Author: Christopher Fry
12. "Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from one's mouth. Then the river will flow, then we can stand in the stream of it raining down."
Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estés
13. "This was like the Rubik's Cube of life.One big glob of scattered, multicolored possibilities she had to sort out and line up in the appropriate manner by twisting endless scenario after scenario in her head.And it sucked.Big, fat wankers."

Rubi Tuesday sedang berbicara di jalur satu; aku merindukanmu." Stine terus saja menatapku."Aku juga merindukanmu, Rubi. Terima kasih. Itu saja, Pak Wili." Dia kembali duduk."
Author: Desi Puspitasari
16. "Si me quieres, quiéreme entera,no por zonas de luz y sombra…Si me quieres, quiéreme negray blanca. Y gris, y verde y rubia,y morena…Quiéreme día,quiéreme noche…¡Y madrugada en la ventana abierta!…Si me quieres, no me recortes:¡Quiéreme toda… O no me quieras!"
Author: Dulce María Loynaz
17. "Das Ufer des Flusses und der vielen glitzernden Bächlein, die ihm auf allerlei Umwegen zuströmten, und ebenso alle Flächen, die von den Ufern sich ans Wasser hinuntersenkten, waren von kurzem, dichten, gleichmäßigen Rasen bedeckt, der lieblich duftete. Und weiter noch dehnte sich dieser sanfte grüne Teppich, durchs ganze Tal, vom Fluß bis an den Fuß der Höhen, die es umgürteten. Diese wundervolle weite Grasfläche war über und über mit gelben Butterblumen, weißen Gänseblümchen, blauen Veilchen und rubinroten Asphodelen besprenkelt, und ihre unbeschreibliche Schönheit redete laut zu unsern Herzen von der Liebe und der Herrlichkeit Gottes."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
18. "Fazu kada su se mini suknje prvi put nosile Erika je na zahtjev majke morala preskociti. Naredbu da Erika mora nositi duge suknje majka je opravdala tvrdnjom da Eriki ne stoji kratko. Sve su druge djevojke u ono doba odrezale donji dio sukanja, haljina i kaputa i ponovo ih porubile. Ili su odmah kupile kratku odjecu. Kotac vremena nacickan tankim svijecama djevojackih nogu dokotrljao se i do Erike, no ona ga je na majcinu naredbu morala preskociti — morala je preskociti svoje vrijeme."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
19. "If just once you were depressed for no reason, you have been so all your life without knowing it.Becoming: an agony without an ending.The older I grow, the less I enjoy performing my little Hamlet. The desire to die was my one and only concern; to it I have sacrificed everything, even death. If History had a goal, how lamentable would be the fate of those of us who have accomplished nothing!On the frontiers of the self: ‘What I have suffered, what I am suffering, no one will ever know, not even I'. Events - tumours of time.Man secretes disaster.The secret of my adaptation to life? - I've changed despairs the way I've changed shirts. Each day is a Rubicon in which I aspire to be drowned."
Author: Emil Cioran
20. "She's like a Rubik's Cube. So frustrating at times that you want to toss it out the goddamn window. But you don't. You can't. You're compelled to keep playing with it until you figure it out."
Author: Emma Chase
21. "How could he maintain the apology in his eyes without getting carried away by her cherubic innocence?"
Author: Faraaz Kazi
22. "The Rubicons which women must cross, the sex barriers which they must breach, are ultimately those that exist in their own minds."
Author: Freda Adler
23. "Rubies flew like drops of blood from the chest of a dying prince, and he sank to his knees in the water and with his last breath murmured a woman's name."
Author: George R.R. Martin
24. "Aren't these the finest treasures? Each one springs up, and becomes more red than rubies, more fine than diamonds adn more valuable, so we are told; and before you can run back here again to look, the petals have begin to drop and the leaves to yellow. Look, they sag, they fall. Are they the more wonderful because they live such a short time."
Author: Gregory Maguire
25. "We left behind this small townBut we couldn't leave behind the ghostsAs we headed for the coast, yeah, and you knowThere was something in the way she told meHow my hair looked stupid, andHow she couldn't hold her tequila, andHow she was broken and beautiful andStill standing, and how was I supposed to knowAll along we were saving JuneSaving June, yeahShe had flowers in her hair and one powerful glareMy modern day Rubik's Cube, she made me feelLike maybe we could have it allBut you can never have it allAnd now I've gone and lostAll these things that they always sang aboutAll the things that I still dream aboutNow I'm counting up the days, counting all the waysI never said what it means, but it's too late 'causeJune is over and so are weAnd I'm the one left, with nothing to save"
Author: Hannah Harrington
26. "Misconceptions are unavoidable now that we've eaten of the Tree of Knowledge. But Paradise is locked and bolted, and the cherubim stands behind us. We have to go on and make the journey round the world to see if it is perhaps open somewhere at the back."
Author: Heinrich Von Kleist

28. "—Veo que ya está listo doctor Wallace. —Randolph se dirigió a él.—Así es. —Le dijo mientras no dejaba de verme.—Ah… —Continuó Randolph—. Señorita Constanza le presento al doctor Jonathan Wallace, médico privado de su excelencia. Doctor, le presento a la señorita Constanza Norman, tutora de artes e invitada de su alteza.—Es un placer conoceros. —Me miraba sin poder parpadear mientras hacía una reverencia y besaba mi mano.—Mucho gusto doctor Wallace. —Lo saludé impresionada por su acento. Era un hombre muy guapo, alto, de cabello rubio, ojos verdes y piel blanca. Se notaba que era muy fino y su perfume de hombre… Era muy delicioso y embriagador. —Por favor, llamadme Jonathan. —Con un suave tono de voz me dijo, mientras clavaba aún más sus ojos en mí y no soltaba mi mano."

29. "And there is my payment the rubies in your cheeks. Are you properly scandalized by your wicked behavior? If you were Catholic, you'd singe the ears of the priest you confessed to. Do you remember making me swear to repeat all those naughty actions agian, no matter what you said this morning?" Now that he brought it up, I did recall saying that. Great Betrayed by my own immorality. "God, Bones...some of that was depraved." "I'll take that as a compliment." He closed the distance between us."I love you. Don't be ashamed of anything we did, even if your prudery is on life support."

30. "The letter was destroyed, but its final paragraph is inside of me. She wrote, I wish I could be a girl again, with the chance to live my life again. I have suffered so much more than I needed to. And the joys I have felt have not always been joyous. I could have lived differently. When I was your age, my grandfather gought me a ruby bracelet. It was too big for me and would slide up and down my arm. It was almost a necklace. He later told me that he had asked the jeweler to make it that way. Its size was supposed to be a symbol of his love. More rubies, more love. But I could not wear it comfortably. I could not wear it at all. So here is the point of everything I have been trying to say. If I were to give a bracelet to you, now, I would measure your wrist twice."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
31. "Olyan gyönyöru, mintha nem is anyjától lett volna, mintha maga szülte volna a költok szilaj, csapongó képzelete, mely átrepül a mindenség fölött, tündérvirágoktól válogat színeket az archoz és ajkhoz, a mennybolttól kölcsönzi a homlok alakját, a suhogó nádtól a termet délcegségét, gyémánttól a szemek ragyogását, mandolától az alakjukat, sötét éjszakától a színüket, és ami szépet kölcsön kér a rózsától, a rubinttól, a harmattól, napsugártól, mindazt vétkes vakmeroséggel öt betuvel fejezi ki "ideál"-nak.(Az arany-kisasszony)"
Author: Kálmán Mikszáth
32. "Still, one could argue—and many did—that Greenspan, at least, had no business being quite so shocked. Over the years, countless people had challenged his deregulatory dogma, including (to name just a few) Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman, both Nobel Prize–winning economists, and Brooksley Born, who was head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 1996 to 1999. Born eventually became something of a Cassandra figure for the crisis, since she repeatedly called for regulating the market for derivatives, those ultracomplex financial products that eventually helped bring down the economy. Those calls were silenced when Greenspan, along with then-Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and then-Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Arthur Levitt, took the extraordinary step of convincing Congress to pass legislation forbidding Born's agency from taking any action for the duration of her term."
Author: Kathryn Schulz
33. "Der Rabe auf seinen rubinroten SchwingenZwischen den Welten hört Tote er singen,Kaum kennt er die Kraft, kaum kennt er den Preis,Die Macht erhebt sich, es schließt sich der Kreis.Der Löwe - so stolz das diamant'ne Gesicht,Der jähe Bann trübt das strahlende Licht,Im Sterben der Sonne bringt er die Wende,Des Raben Tod offenbart das Ende."
Author: Kerstin Gier
34. "A pomegranate is filled with rubies when you open it up. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend - but not for me. I love rubies; they're great over necks, you know."
Author: Lynda Resnick
35. "Listen, she said, "cherubim have come to my planet before.""I know that. Where do you think I got my information?""What do you know about us?""I have heard that your host planet is shadowed, that it is troubled.""It is beautiful," Meg said defensively.She felt a rippling of his wings. "In the middle of your cities?""Well-no-but I don't live in a city.""And is your planet peaceful?""Well-no-it isn't very peaceful.""I had the idea," Proginoskes moved reluctantly within her mind, "that there are wars on your planet. People fighting and killing each other.""Yes, that's so, but-""And children go hungry.""Yes.""And people don't understand each other.""Not always.""And there's-there's hate?""Yes."She felt Proginoskes pulling away. "All I want to do," he was murmuring to himself, "is go some place quiet and recite the names of the stars..."
Author: Madeleine L'Engle
36. "Very soon the heavens presented an extraordinary appearance, for all the stars directly behind me were now deep red, while those directly ahead were violet. Rubies lay behind me, amethysts ahead of me."

37. "Why do you sell your wine, merchant?What can they give you in exchange for your wine? Money? … And what can money give you? Power? … Aren't you the owner of the world when you are holding a drink? Is anyone richer than you, who have gold in your cup, Rubies, Pearls, Dreams, and Love? Don't you feel the blood burning in your veins when the cup kisses your lips."
Author: Omar Khayyam
38. "His face, like everything she knew about him, was purely contradictory. That cherubic mouth with those penetrating eyes: he was too lovely to be menacing, but too intense to be innocent."
Author: Priscilla Glenn
39. "Well," he said, clearly enjoying my confusion. "It was actually for two souls, since you and Seth were both saved. But even if it wasn't, it still would've been worth it. Do you know the price of one soul, Georgina? It's beyond rubies and diamonds, beyond any mortal reckoning. If it had taken me centuries, if it had taken a dozen more angels to help me, it all would have been worth it."
Author: Richelle Mead
40. "Caesar broke the law when he crossed the Rubicon," Frank said. "Great leaders have to think out side the box sometimes."
Author: Rick Riordan
41. "Ol' man Simon, planted a diamond. Grew hisself a garden the likes of none. Sprouts all growin' comin' up glowin' Fruit of jewels all shinin' in the sun. Colors of the rainbow. See the sun and the rain grow sapphires and rubies on ivory vines, Grapes of jade, just ripenin' in the shade, just ready for the squeezin' into green jade wine. Pure gold corn there, Blowin' in the warm air. Ol' crow nibblin' on the amnythyst seeds. In between the diamonds, Ol' man Simon crawls about pullin' out platinum weeds. Pink pearl berries, all you can carry, put 'em in a bushel and haul 'em into town. Up in the tree there's opal nuts and gold pears- Hurry quick, grab a stick and shake some down. Take a silver tater, emerald tomater, fresh plump coral melons. Hangin' in reach. Ol' man Simon, diggin' in his diamonds, stops and rests and dreams about one... real... peach."
Author: Shel Silverstein
42. "—Si yo bajara en busca de tu alma, ni todos los querubines negros juntos podrían apartarme de ti.Un escalofrío recorrió la espalda de Julia.—Haría lo que fuera necesario por salvarte —añadió él y, en ese momento, su expresión y el tono de su voz no admitían discusión—. Incluso aunque tuviera que pasar la eternidad en el infierno con tal de lograrlo."
Author: Sylvain Reynard
43. "Hrun mierzyl ja wzrokiem, a jego mózg dzialal jak dwie myslowe maszyny liczace. Jedna wyceniala zloto bransolet, tygrysie rubiny w pierscionkach na palcach u nóg, diament zdobiacy pepek i dwie siateczki srebrnego filigranu. Druga maszyna byla podlaczona bezposrednio do jego libido. I obie podaly rezultaty, które zadowolily go w najwyzszym stopniu."
Author: Terry Pratchett
44. "Belize: Hell or heaven? [Roy indicates "Heaven" through a glance]Belize: Like San Francisco.Roy Cohn: A city. Good. I was worried... it'd be a garden. I hate that shit.Belize: Mmmm. Big city. Overgrown with weeds, but flowering weeds. On every corner a wrecking crew and something new and crooked going up catty corner to that. Windows missing in every edifice like broken teeth, fierce gusts of gritty wind, and a gray high sky full of ravens.Roy Cohn: Isaiah.Belize: Prophet birds, Roy. Piles of trash, but lapidary like rubies and obsidian, and diamond-colored cowspit streamers in the wind. And voting booths.Roy Cohn: And a dragon atop a golden horde.Belize: And everyone in Balencia gowns with red corsages, and big dance palaces full of music and lights and racial impurity and gender confusion. And all the deities are creole, mulatto, brown as the mouths of rivers. Race, taste and history finally overcome. And you ain't there.Roy Cohn: And Heaven?Belize: That was Heaven, Roy."
Author: Tony Kushner
45. "In 1879 the Bengali scholar S.M. Tagore compiled a more extensive list of ruby colors from the Purana sacred texts: ‘like the China rose, like blood, like the seeds of the pomegranate, like red lead, like the red lotus, like saffron, like the resin of certain trees, like the eyes of the Greek partridge or the Indian crane…and like the interior of the half-blown water lily.' With so many gorgeous descriptive possibilities it is curious that in English the two ancient names for rubies have come to sound incredibly ugly."

47. "Michael staggered to his feet and turned to face his worst nightmare. Baal stood before him, a smirk on his face. He wore his signature grey, pinstripe, three-piece suit, and casually twisted his pinky ring on his long and slender well-manicured finger. As it rotated Michael caught a glimpse of the rubies in the skull's eye sockets. His black hair was slicked back, the sight of his false appearance made Michael sick to his stomach."
Author: Wendy Owens
48. "And pity, like a new-born babe,Striding the blast, or heaven's cherubim, horsedUpon the sightless couriers of the air,Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye,That tears shall drown the wind."
Author: William Shakespeare
49. "How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!Here will we sit and let the sounds of musicCreep in our ears: soft stillness and the nightBecome the touches of sweet harmony.Sit, Jessica. Look how the floor of heavenIs thick inlaid with patines of bright gold:There's not the smallest orb which thou behold'stBut in his motion like an angel sings,Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins;Such harmony is in immortal souls;But whilst this muddy vesture of decayDoth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it."- Lorenzo, Acte V, Scene 1"
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "PUCK How now, spirit! whither wander you?FAIRY Over hill, over dale,Through bush, through brier,Over park, over pale,Through flood, through fire,I do wander everywhere,Swifter than the moon's sphere;And I serve the fairy queen,To dew her orbs upon the green.The cowslips tall her pensioners be:In their gold coats spots you see;Those be rubies, fairy favours,In those freckles live their savours:I must go seek some dewdrops hereAnd hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.Farewell, thou lob of spirits; I'll be gone:Our queen and all our elves come here anon."
Author: William Shakespeare

Today's Quote

The dark breaks wide in fragile rays. Dawn on Ithiss-Tor is more subtle than other sunrises. I have lost count of the worlds where I have stood and watched the light rise, peeling away the sky, sometimes in quiet colors, and sometimes in raw, violent slashes, as if the goddess I don't believe in has cut her veins. And sometimes, as on Gehenna, the sky changes not at all, just endless night, or endless brilliance--and after a time, the constant uniformity makes you feel as if you are the thing that must give way."
