1. "So far, then," said Danglars, mentally, "all has gone as I would have it. I am, temporarily, commander of the Pharaon, with the certainty of being permanently so, if that fool of a Caderousse can be persuaded to hold his tongue. My only fear is the chance of Dantes being released. But, there, he is in the hands of Justice; and," added he with a smile, "she will take her own." So saying, he leaped into a boat, desiring to be rowed on board the Pharaon, where M. Morrel had agreed to meet him."
Author: Alexandre Dumas

Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
5. "The principle of compulsory service, embodied in the system of conscription, lias been the means by which modem dictators and military gangs have shackled their people after a coup d'état, and bound them to their own aggressive purposes. In view of the great service that conscription has rendered to tyranny and war, it is fundamentally shortsighted for any liberty-loving and peace-desiring peoples to maintain it as an imagined safeguard, lest they become the victims of the monster they have helped to preserve."
Author: B.H. Liddell Hart

Aniden akla geliveren ve düsünceye dönüsmek için kâfi zamani bulamayan seyler, basinç degisikliginin tesiriyle (bizim problemimizde basinç aniden düsüyor, sicaklik ise sabit) ne olur, sivi hale geçer ve gözyasi olarak akar bunu herkes bilsin. Bu böyledir. Gözlerini sil."
Author: Baris Biçakçi
7. "When a man may whisper in a close ear, and that whisper be repeated far away and many moons later, then he has power. When a many may speak against another, and that other be brought to ruin and rue by nothing more than those words, then he has power. And if a man can act without the appearance of action, and bring about great change without the appearance of desiring it, then he has power."
Author: Brian Ruckley
8. "Are not all lifelong friendships born at the moment when at last you meet another human being who has some inkling (but faint and uncertain even in the best) of that something which you were born desiring, and which, beneath the flux of other desires and in all the momentary silences between the louder passions, night and day, year by year, from childhood to old age, you are looking for, watching for, listening for? You have never had it. All the things that have ever deeply possessed your soul have been but hints of it -- tantalising glimpses, promises never quite fulfilled, echoes that died away just as they caught your ear. But if it should really become manifest -- if there ever came an echo that did not die away but swelled into the sound itself -- you would know it. Beyond all possibility of doubt you would say "Here at last is the thing I was made for."
Author: C.S. Lewis
9. "Who said that time heals all wounds? It would be better to say that time heals everything - except wounds. With time, the hurt of separation loses its real limits. With time, the desired body will soon disappear, and if the desiring body has already ceased to exist for the other, then what remains is a wound, disembodied."
Author: Chris Marker

Author: Confucius
12. "You did not fear death. You stepped in its path, but without really desiring it: how can one desire something one doesn't know? You didn't deny life but affirmed your taste for the unknown, betting that if something existed on the other side, it would be better than here."
Author: Édouard Levé
13. "Love consists in desiring to give what is our own to another and feeling his delight as our own."
Author: Emanuel Swedenborg
14. "Did you just pick them up out of their lives?''No,' she insisted, 'I waited 'till they were dead.''You dug them up?!''I would never! I have a cousin named Anubis and a brother named Osiris."

Author: Enock Maregesi

Author: Graham Greene
19. "The Orphic symbols center on the singing god who lives to defeat death and who liberates nature, so that the constrained and constraining matter releases the beautiful and playful forms of animate and inanimate things. No longer striving and no longer desiring ‘for something still to be attained,' they are free from fear and fetter – and thus free per se. The contemplation of Narcissus repels all other activity in the erotic surrender to beauty, inseparably uniting his own existence with nature."
Author: Herbert Marcuse
20. "In his land, owing to the absence of settees and sofas of all sorts, the king, chiefs, and great people generally, were in the custom of fattening some of the lower orders for ottomans; and to furnish a house comfortably in that respect, you had only to buy up eight or ten lazy fellows, and lay them round in the piers and alcoves. Besides, it was very convenient on an excursion; much better than those garden-chairs which are convertible into walking-sticks; upon occasion, a chief calling his attendant, and desiring him to make a settee of himself under a spreading tree, perhaps in some damp marshy place."
Author: Herman Melville
21. "Well, I'm still experimenting, trying to figure out my style. I'm trying lots of things from many designers including Christian Siriano."
Author: Isabelle Fuhrman

Author: J.K. Rowling
24. "Sirius looked out of the fire at Harry, a crease between his sunken eyes. "You're less like your father than I thought," he said finally, a definite coolness in his voice. "The risk would've been what made it fun for James.""Look —""Well, I'd better get going . . . I'll write to tell you a time I can make it back into the fire, then, shall I? If you can stand to risk it?"There was a tiny pop, and the place where Sirius's head had been was flickering flame once more."
Author: J.K. Rowling

"The kitchen door opened and the entire Weasley family, plus Hermione, came inside, all looking very happy, with Mr Weasley walking proudly in their midst dressed in a pair of striped pyjamas covered by a mackintosh."Cured!" he announced brightly to the kitchen at large. "Completely cured!"He and all the other Weasleys froze on the threshold, gazing at the scene in front of them, which was also suspended in mid-action, both Sirius and Snape looking towards the door with their wands pointing into each other's faces and Harry immobile between them, a hand stretched out to each, trying to force them apart."Merlin's beard," said Mr Weasley, the smile sliding off his face, "what's going on here?"
Author: J.K. Rowling
28. "Dumnezeu,asa cum ne este El zugravit in crestinism,ma face sa ma gandesc la Xenofon-considerat de unii ca intemeietorul scolii eleate si cu,orice s-ar spune,un atat de clar ponuntat scepticism-,care spunea ca daca boii si caii si-ar zugravi zeii i-ar infatisa ca boii si caii cei mai alesi.Asa si oamenii,au inzestrat un om cu toate insusirile ce li se pareau lor mai grozave,fiecare din ele impinsa la perfectiune,si au zis:"asta e Dumnezeu"."
Author: Jeni Acterian
29. "Ah, ka-lyrra, I look at you and you make me want to live a man's life with you. To wake with you and sleep with you, argue with you and make love with you, to get a silly human job and take walks in the park and live so tiny beneath such a vast sky. But I will never stay with another human woman and water her die. Never. --FROM THE (GREATLY REVISED) BLACK EDITION OF THE O'CALLAGHAN Book of the Sin Siriche Du"
Author: Karen Marie Moning
30. "Literary style is like crystal-ware: the cleaner the wineglass, the brighter the brilliance. As a reader, I agree with those who believe that a colour of the dress, which a character has on, as well as any enumeration and description of dishes at dinner or in the kitchen should be mentioned only in case if all this has a strong consequent relation to the plot, but as an author, I can't help mentioning all this, with no particular reason, just for love for my characters, desiring to give them something nice and pleasant. Melancholy grows a platinum rose. Affection grows a double rose."
Author: Lara Biyuts
31. "What she read was a series of short connected lyrics, "Isis in Darkness." The Egyptian Queen of Heaven and Earth was wandering in the Underworld, gathering up pieces of the murdered and dismembered body of her lover Osiris. At the same time, it was her own body she was putting back together; and it was also the physical universe. She was creating the universe by an act of love."
Author: Margaret Atwood
32. "Establishing dominance early in the relationship is key. Vampire children are like human children in that they can sense weakness. They will wait for you to be busy or too distracted to realize that you've given them permission to feed on the pizza guy. —Siring for the Stupid: A Beginner's Guide to Raising Newborn Vampires"
Author: Molly Harper
33. "Desire! It carries us and crucifies us, delivers us every new day to a battlefield where, on the eve, the battle was lost; but in sunlight does it not look like a territory ripe for conquest, a place where - even though tomorrow we will die - we can build empires doomed to fade to dust, as if the knowledge we have of their imminent fall had absolutely no effect on our eagerness to build them now? We are filled with the energy of constantly wanting that which we cannot have, we are abandoned at dawn on a field littered with corpses, we are transported until our death by projects that are no sooner completed than they must be renewed. Yet how exhausting it is to be constantly desiring..."
Author: Muriel Barbery
34. "Stiu ca marturisirile prea sincere par scandaloase. Multi s-au învatat cu o anumita pudoare a minciunilor cuviincioase, tresar când le spui prea direct ce ai de spus. Nu le convine. Prefera sa auda totul ca prin vata. Atunci ramân liberi sa reactioneze cum vor, inclusiv sa se comporte ca si când n-ar fi auzit..."
Author: Octavian Paler
35. "However, in fetishism the desired object is displaced; and in this context ("The Apparition" by Guy De Maupassant) it is the desiring object, so to speak. In other words, have we ever seen a boot in love with a fetishist?"
Author: Philippe Lejeune
36. "We typically misunderstand what's wrong about consumerism. It's not that it makes us love material things too much. To be a good consumer, you have to desire to get lots of things, but you must not love any of them too much once you have them. Consumerism needs children who do not stay attached to their toys for very long and learn to expect the next round of presents as soon as possible. When consumerism succeeds, our attachments are shallow, easily broken, so we can move on to the next thing we're supposed to get. Being a good consumer means desiring new things, not cherishing old ones. And the new things you're supposed to desire are not always material things. Spirituality is now a consumerist enterprise, too."
Author: Phillip Cary
37. "Hey, did you--""Read your mind?" Osiris shrugged. "It's like an open book full of blank pages. Wasn't very hard."
Author: Rachel Firasek
38. "My spirit mirrors the radiance of a clear, blue sky. With closed eyes I lift my face and smile, warmed from the core and from above. All hopes and dreams compete with this endless expanse of heaven, desiring the clock of eternity. I reach with my hands?frenziedly achieving?attempting to learn and do all. Yet I understand the humble truth; a drop of rain shall amount to my contribution among all the droplets in the vast ocean of human history. It is a pure and precious tear that seeps from my existence. Taste how sweet! It is all that I have, given willingly."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
39. "I, Horus, son of Osiris, claim the throne of the heavens as my birthright!" he shouted."What was once mine shall be mine again.Is there anyone who would challenge me?" The gods flickered and glowed. A few scowled. One muttered something that sounded like "Cheese", although that could've been my imagination."
Author: Rick Riordan

Author: Rip Taylor
41. "Eskiden her insan hakkinda hiçbir esasa dayanmadan, sirf mukavemet edilmez bir hissin, bir pesin hükmün tesiriyle nasil: "Bu beni anlamaz?" demissem, bu sefer bu kadin için gene hiçbir esasa dayanmadan fakat o yanilmaz ilk hisse tabi olarak " Iste bu beni anlar!" diyordum."
Author: Sabahattin Ali

43. "Once, during the drinking phase, Wendy had accused him of desiring his own destruction but not possessing the necessary moral fiber to support a full-blown deathwish. So he manufactured ways in which other people could do it, lopping a piece at a time off himself and their family."
Author: Stephen King
44. "I'm really feeling more like a Harry Potter to your Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.""Harry Potter? Someone is awful full of themselves.""And this way Charlie can be always-loyal and cooler than cool Neville Longbottom, and Liam gets to be Sirius."Jase shook his head. "Sirius dies.""Lupin?""Also dies.""A Weasley twin?""Liam isn't that funny, and Fred dies."I searched over the entire cast of Harry Potter. "All the cool people die."
Author: Tammy Blackwell
45. "What kind of things did you have in mind, kid?' Clyde said this with a smile that exposed a slight lewdness: the young man who laughed at seals and bought balloons had reversed his profile, and the new side, which showed a harsher angle, was the one Grady was never able to defend herself against: its brashness so attracted, so crippled her, she was left desiring only to appease."
Author: Truman Capote
46. "Treba se cuvati sanjarije koja se namece. Sanjarija nosi u sebi tajanstvenost i opojnost mirisa.Ona je katkada kao otrovna ideja koja se siri i prodire kao dim. Covek moze da otruje snovima isto onako kao i sa cvecem. Opojno divno i kobno samoubistvo.Rdjave misli su samoubistvo duse.U tome se i sastoji trovanje. Masta privlaci, pridobija lepim,mami,veze,a potom postajete njen saucesnik. Ona vas uortaci da zajednicki obmanjujete svest. Opcini vas,a potom vas pokvari. O mastanju se moze reci ono isto sto i o igri. Najpre bivas prevaren,a zatim i sam postajes varalica."
Author: Victor Hugo
47. "Desiring always to be in mourning, he clothed himself with night."
Author: Victor Hugo
48. "Why, from the very windows, even in the dusk, you see a swelling run through the street, an aspiration, as with arms outstretched, eyes desiring, mouths agape. And then we peaceably subside. For if the exaltation lasted we should be blown like foam into the air. The stars would shine through us. We should go down the gale in salt drops- as sometimes happens. For the impetuous spirits will have none of this cradling. Never any swaying or aimlessly lolling for them. Never any making believe, or lying cosily, or genially supposing that one is much like another, fire warm, wine pleasant, extravagance a sin."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "To him it seemed a miracle that we should last so much as a single day. There is no antidote, he writes, against the opium of time. The winter sun shows how soon the light fades from the ash, how soon night enfolds us. Hour upon hour is added to the sum. Time itself grows old. Pyramids, arches and obelisks are melting pillars of snow. Not even those who have found a place amidst the heavenly constellations have perpetuated their names: Nimrod is lost in Orion, and Osiris in the Dog Star. Indeed, old families last not three oaks. To set one's name to a work gives no one a title to be remembered, for who knows how many of the best of men have gone without a trace? The iniquity of oblivion blindly scatters her poppyseed and when wretchedness falls upon us one summer's day like snow, all we wish for is to be forgotten."
Author: W.G. Sebald
50. "When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,I all alone beweep my outcast state And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless criesAnd look upon myself and curse my fate, Wishing me like to one more rich in hope, Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,Desiring this man's art and that man's scope, With what I most enjoy contented least; Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,Haply I think on thee, and then my state, Like to the lark at break of day arising From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth bringsThat then I scorn to change my state with kings."
Author: William Shakespeare
