"Tell me Was Venus more beautiful Than you are When she topped The crinkled waves Drifting shoreward On her plaited shell Was Botticelli's vision Fairer than mine And were the painted rosebuds He tossed his lady Of better worth Than the words I blow about you To cover your too great loveliness As with a gauze Of misted silver For me You stand poised In the blue and buoyant air Cinctured by bright winds Treading the sunlight. And the waves which precede you Ripple and stir The sands at my feet."
Author: Amy Lowell

Of course, I couldn't go around to every mall, so we'd have to get more Elviras."

Author: Dante Alighieri

We are haunted by otherness, by the path not taken, by the life unlived. We are haunted by the changing winds and the ebbing tides of history. And even as our own flame burns brightest, we are haunted by the embers of the first dying fire. But mostly, said Lord Jim, we are haunted by ourselves."
Author: Jonathan Evison

15. "Somewhere int he flesh of the earth the dreadful earthquake shuddered, the tide walked to and fro on the leash of the moon, rainbows formed, winds swept the sky like giant brooms piling up clouds before them, clouds which writhed into different shapes, melted into rain or darkened, bruised themselves against an unseen antagonist and went on their way, laced with forking rivers of lightning, complete with white electric tributaries. Out of this infinite vision an infinity of details could be drawn, but Sonny had settled on one, and from the endless series a particular beach was chosen and began to form around Laura - a beach of iron-dark sand and shells like frail stars, and a wonderful wide sea that stretched, neither green nor blue, but inked by the approach of night into violet and black, wrinkling with its own salty puzzles, right out to a distant, pure horizon."
Author: Margaret Mahy
16. "Gormenghast. Withdrawn and ruinous it broods in umbra: the immemorial masonry: the towers, the tracts. Is all corroding? No. Through an avenue of spires a zephyr floats; a bird whistles; a freshet beats away from a choked river. Deep in a fist of stone a doll's hand wriggles, warm rebellious on the frozen palm. A shadow shifts its length. A spider stirs... And darkness winds between the characters.- Gormenghast"
Author: Mervyn Peake
17. "Human beings across every culture I know about require such stories, stories with cool winds and wood smoke. They speak to something deep within us, the capacity to conceptualize, objectify and find patterns, thereby to create the flow of events and perceptions that find perfect expression in fiction. We are built this way, we create stories by reflex, unstoppably. But this elegant system really works best when the elements of the emerging story, whether is is being written or being read, are taken as literal fact. Almost always, to respond to the particulars of the fantastic as if they were metaphorical or allegorical is to drain them of vitality."
Author: Peter Straub
18. "Grown ups don't believe in Santa Claus. They vote."
Author: Pierre Desproges
19. "All right, little boy, he tried kidding himself, calm down now. Santa Claus is coming to town with all the nice answers. No longer will you be a weird Robinson Crusoe, imprisoned on an island of night surrounded by oceans of death."
Author: Richard Matheson
20. "We rode on the winds of the rising storm,We ran to the sounds of the thunder.We danced among the lightning bolts,and tore the world asunder."
Author: Robert Jordan
21. "Bigotry ravashes the human spirt like the winds of wildfire."
Author: Ronald P. Chavez
22. "You can make a child believe a lot of things. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny... just about anything really, except love. You cannot make a child believe you love him if you don't"
Author: Samantha Sotto
23. "Such experiences can make us bewail how the Western world gives itself over annually to its Claus-mass or commerce-mass. We celebrate a reworked pagan Saturnalia of epic proportions, one in which the only connection with the incarnation is semantic. Santa is worshiped, not the Savior; pilgrims go to the stores with credit cards, not to the manger with gifts. It is the feast of indulgence, not of the incarnation."
Author: Sinclair B. Ferguson
24. "It was a spring day, the sort that gives people hope: all soft winds and delicate smells ofwarm earth. Suicide weather."
Author: Susanna Kaysen
25. "It is pleasant, when the sea is high and the winds are dashing the waves about, to watch from the shores the struggles of another."

27. "Un día la adornarán de piedras preciosas y se casará con un joven turco, al que sólo habrá visto de lejos, al través de una celosía, y con el que cruzará la palabra por vez primera en el momento de ser su esposa. La llevarán a una casa nueva, en la que vivirá como única señora si su marido no ama las costumbres antiguas, o en la que se confundirá con otras, iguales a ella en derechos, distintas a ella en alma, como si fuese de otro planeta. Su madre se extrañará de sus lágrimas y melancolías. Así vivió ella, así vivieron sus abuelas y todas las honradas damas temerosas de Dios. Pero la madre era feliz, abroquelada en su santa ignorancia: no la habían hecho morder el fruto embriagador de la cultura occidental... Y la infeliz reclusa de las tradiciones de su pueblo, asustada ante el porvenir, y mientras llega el momento del matrimonio, se consuela con la lectura, y devora las novelas francesas que llenan los escaparates de las librerías de la gran calle de Pera."
Author: Vicente Blasco Ibáñez
28. "However much they may smile at her, the old inhabitants would miss Tillie. Her stories give them something to talk about and to conjecture about, cut off as they are from the restless currents of the world. The many naked little sandbars which lie between Venice and the mainland, in the seemingly stagnant water of the lagoons, are made habitable and wholesome only because, every night, a foot and a half of tide creeps in from the sea and winds its fresh brine up through all that network of shining waterways. So, into all the little settlements of quiet people, tidings of what their boys and girls are doing in the world bring real refreshment; bring to the old, memories, and to the young, dreams."
Author: Willa Cather
