2. "Short of dragging her to the water kicking and screaming-and destroying Emma's trust in him-Galen made the snap decision to leave them both in Rayna's care. And the word "care" can be very subjective where his sister is concerned.But they couldn't waste any more time; with Yudor's head start on them, a search party might have already been dispatched, and if not, then Galen knew it was coming. And he couldn't-wouldn't-risk them finding Emma. Beautiful, stubborn Half-Breed Emma.And he's a little perturbed that Nalia would.The three of them plod holes in the sand reaching up to Emma's back porch, alongside a recent trail of someone else's-probably Emma's-footsteps leading from the beach. Galen knows this moment will always be burned into his memory. The moment when his brother, the Triton king, put on human clothes and walked up to a house built by humans, squinting in the broad daylight with eyes unaccustomed to the sun.What will he say to Nalia? What will he do?"
Author: Anna Banks

May your wisdom grace us until the stars rain down from the heavens."
Author: C.S. Lewis

Flee, run to the beach, lie face-down in the sand, hide her face, listen to the sound of the sea."
Author: Clarice Lispector

8. "History was not a matter of missing minutes on the tape. I did not stand helpless before it. I hewed to the texture of collected knowledge, took faith from the solid and availing stuff of our experience. Even if we believe that history is a workwheel powered by human blood -- read the speeches of Mussolini -- at least we've known the thing together. A single narrative sweep, not ten thousand wisps of disinformation. (82)"

11. "The library is not, as some would have it, a place for the retiring of disposition or faint of heart. It is not an ivory tower or a quiet room in a sanitarium facing away from the afternoon sun. It is, rather, a command center, a power base. A board room, a war room. An Oval Office for all who preside over their own destinies. One does not retreat from the world here; one prepares to join it at an advantage."
Author: Eric Burns
12. "Según los estudiosos, cada día tenemos unos sesenta mil pensamientos. Positivos y negativos, banales y profundos. No hay que juzgarlos: son como nubes que pasan. Somos responsables de lo que hacemos, pero no de lo que pensamos. Por eso, cuando alguna idea te angustie, simplemente ponle la etiqueta «pensamiento» y déjala pasar."
Author: Francesc Miralles
13. "Where does discipline end? Where does cruelty begin? Somewhere between these, thousands of children inhabit a voiceless hell."
Author: Francois Mauriac
14. "Music is the same to me as it was to Goethe - a pleasant noise. I am an eye man, not an ear man."
Author: Fritz Lang
15. "But the whole modern world, or at any rate the whole modern Press, has a perpetual and consuming terror of plain morals. Men always attempt to avoid condemning a thing upon merely moral grounds...Why on earth do the newspapers, in describing a dynamite outrage or any other political assassination, call it a "dastardly outrage" or a cowardly outrage? It is perfectly evident that it is not dastardly in the least. It is perfectly evident that it is about as cowardly as the Christians going to the lions. The man who does it exposes himself to the chance of being torn in pieces by two thousand people. What the thing is, is not cowardly, but profoundly and detestably wicked. The man who does it is very infamous and very brave. But, again, the explanation is that our modern Press would rather appeal to physical arrogance, or to anything, rather than appeal to right and wrong."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
16. "Setelah begitu banyak kebaikan yang Allah curahkan kepada manusia, sedikit sahaja yang mahu berterima kasih kepada-Nya.Maka, bagaimana pula kita, hamba Allah yang kerdil ini, boleh tidak lena malam hanya kerana jasanya tidak dikenang seseorang.JANGAN KECIL HATI. Kita kan hamba!(Di Hamparan Shamrock, Kuseru NamaMu: 341)"
Author: Hasrizal Abdul Jamil
17. "Flirt!'s mascara is insane - I don't need false lashes when I wear it."
Author: Heather Morris
18. "The last clear thought I have is of my grandmother'srust-colored wall clock ticking away in the darkness of my apartment—my sanctuary where I dreamed and desired and hoped for goodness and love. I wonder how long that clock will tick without anyone around to hear it. I wonder if maybe I should have taken my grandmother's silverware or jewelry instead. I wonder – if I knew then what I know now – if I still would have approached Jade that first night and invited her into my life, only to watch as she took it from me and fed it to some Godless thing, as my mother had called it. Would I still have given myself over to her, knowing it would end the same way, with the barbaric flicker of hope that this time she could love me?"
Author: J. Tonzelli
19. "Love is a Christian word, Anjin-san. Love is a Christian thought, a Christian ideal. We have no word for 'love' as I understand you to mean it. Duty, loyalty, honor, respect, desire, those words and thoughts are what we have, all that we need."
Author: James Clavell
20. "Mr. Bingley was good-looking and gentlemanlike; he had a pleasant countenance, and easy, unaffected manners. His sisters were fine women, with an air of decided fashion. His brother-in-law, Mr. Hurst, merely looked the gentleman; but his friend Mr. Darcy soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien, and the report which was in general circulation within five minutes after his entrance, of his having ten thousand a year. The gentlemen pronounced him to be a fine figure of a man, the ladies declared he was much handsomer than Mr. Bingley, and he was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which turned the tide of his popularity; for he was discovered to be proud; to be above his company, and above being pleased; and not all his large estate in Derbyshire could then save him from having a most forbidding, disagreeable countenance, and being unworthy to be compared with his friend."
Author: Jane Austen
21. "Jeffrey to Felicia - Given your peculiar fashions over the past four years, I'm afraid you've caused people to believe you're a little insane."
Author: Jen Turano
22. "When someone's been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it's like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you're just clutching air and grit."
Author: Jenny Han
23. "Path is only a name for a place where you find yourself. Where you're going on it is only a story. Where you've been on it is only another. Some of the stories are pleasant ones; some are not. That's dark and light."
Author: John Crowley
24. "King Duncan looked up and swept his gaze slowly around the room. Cassandra, he saw, was defiant as ever. Arald's face was set and determined. Halt and Crowley's faces were inscrutable in the shadows of their cowls. The two younger men were both a little wide-eyed- obviously uncomfortable at the emotions that had been bared in the room. There was still a hint of admiration in Will's eyes, however, as he continued to stare at the Baron. Rodney was nodding in agreement with Arald's statements, while Gilan made a show of studying his nails."
Author: John Flanagan
25. "She was a very small girl with a face as lovely and fresh as her son's face—a very small girl. Most of the time she knew she was smarter and prettier than anyone else. But now and then a lonely fear would fall upon her so that she seemed surrounded by a tree-tall forest of enemies. Then every thought and word and look was aimed to hurt her, and she had no place to run and no place to hide. And she would cry in panic because there was no escape and no sanctuary. Then one day she was reading a book—brown, with a silver title, and the cloth was broken and the boards thick. It was Alice in Wonderland. But it was the bottle which said, "Drink me" that had changed her life."
Author: John Steinbeck
26. "Holy Santa Claus shit, Nic!"
Author: Kathryn Perez
27. "Life is insanely robust, though we can make species go extinct, and this is the bad thing. So I always make the point that you can't say, 'Is it too late?' That is the terrible question, because either answer promotes inaction. If it's too late, you don't need to act; if it's not too late, you don't need to act."
Author: Kim Stanley Robinson
28. "Ama saygisiz nankörlük genç insanlarin zirhidir.O olmasa nasil kalirlar hayatta,nasil ilerlerler ? Yasli insanlar gençlerin iyiligini ister ama kötülügünü de ister : Onlari tüketmek,canliliklarini içlerine çekmek isterler,böylece kendileri ölümsüzlüge erissin diye.O hasinligin kabaligin ve hafif mesrepligin koruyucu zirhi olmasa,çocuklar geçmisin yükü altinda ezilirler,baskalarinin geçmisinin yükü altinda,kendi sirtlarina yüklenen.Bencillik onlari kurtaran bir lütuftur."
Author: Margaret Atwood

31. "Ask evlilikten sonra gelir. Unutma: Evlenmeden önce alevlenen ask yangini evlilikle söner ve geriye bos ve kederli bir yangin yeri kalir. Evlendikten sonra duyulan ask da biter elbette, ama onun yerini mutluluk alir. Buna ragmen bazi aceleci budalalar evlenmeden önce âsik olup yana yana bütün aski tüketirler. Niye? Çünkü hayatta en büyük amaci ask sanarlar."
Author: Orhan Pamuk
32. "Check it out-this is a copy of a painting of a Greek High Priestess named Calliope. it says she was also the Poet Laureate after Sappho. Doesn't she look exactly like Cher?'Wow, that's insane.

40. "Depression - that limp word for the storm of black panic and half-demented malfunction - had over the years worked itself out in Charlotte's life in a curious pattern. Its onset was often imperceptible: like an assiduous housekeeper locking up a rambling mansion, it noiselessly went about and turned off, one by one, the mind's thousand small accesses to pleasure."
Author: Sebastian Faulks
41. "Did you know you actually get to decide how long you will experience any emotion Although your initial reaction to an unpleasant sad or hurtful situation may be natural and perfectly understandable given your circumstances what you do with that emotion and how long you experience it is up to you. You can say "Yes I'm feeling depressed right now and plan to stay that way until tomorrow. Then I'll get on with what has to be done in my life to change it." Or you can decide to release it right away."
Author: Sue Augustine

In spiteof the hands that beat me, in spiteof the mouth that kept silent, in spiteof the face that turned cruelas a gold Chinese king,he could not control the lovethat came out of him.The body is monumental, a colossusthrough which he breathes.His hands crawl over his stomachjerkily as sand crabs on five legs;he makes a fistlike the fist of a newborn."

46. "What people had had shed and left--a pair of shoes, a shooting cap, some faded skirts and coats in wardrobes--those alone kept the human shape and in the emptiness indicated how once they were filled and animated; how once hands were busy with hooks and buttons; how once the looking-glass had held a face; had held a world hollowed out in which a figure turned, a hand flashed, the door opened, in came children rushing and tumbling; and went out again. Now, day after day, light turned, like a flower reflected in water, its sharp image on the wall opposite. Only the shadows of the trees, flourishing in the wind, made obeisance on the wall, and for a moment darkened the pool in which light reflected itself; or birds, flying, made a soft spot flutter slowly across the bedroom floor."
Author: Virginia Woolf

Everyone agreed with me, and yet I found no one who wanted to accept the bargain of becoming ignorant in order to become content. From this I concluded that though we greatly value happiness, we place even greater value on reason.But yet, upon reflection, it seems that to prefer reason to happiness is to be quite insane."
Author: Voltaire
49. "Pleasant things to hear, though hearing them from him embarrasses me. I soak up the praise but feel obliged to disparage the gift. I believe that most people have some degree of talent for something--forms, colors, words, sounds. Talent lies around in us like kindling waiting for a match, but some people, just as gifted as others, are less lucky. Fate never drops a match on them. The times are wrong, or their health is poor, or their energy low, or their obligations too many. Something."
Author: Wallace Stegner
50. "Movies are usually difficult, often insane, constantly challenging and always strangely amusing to make."
