3. "To cope, he and his siblings – older and younger sisters, a younger brother - created a game called Henry Kissinger. Palahniuk remembers that as their parents fought, lots would be drawn to see who would play Kissinger. 'This was the early to mid-70s, when Kissinger was a hero, forging peace in the Middle East,' he explains. 'Whoever became Henry Kissinger would have to go and redirect our parents' attention or anger to a different crisis.'

4. "Literature is a way in which we can learn to live deeper lives -- husband with wife, parent with child, brother with sister, fellow member with fellow member. Most good authors are better than we are. They are much better company than our own friends. What comes from good company? What comes from good company is better manners, greater sensitivity, greater sensibility, greater empathy, great sympathy. Reading good literature makes us more capable of understanding other people, of loving other people, those whom we don't particularly want to love, even our enemies, as well as those closest to us. How can we expect to have full marriages when we are not going into those marriages with full minds and fine sensibilities? We are ignoring the tremendous possibilities of a delicate, well-poised, rich, sensitive life if we ignore the literature of the past. There is no substitute."
Author: Arthur Henry King
5. "Un giorno,però, a diciotto anni, leggendo l'autobiografia di John Stuart Mill 1 , trovai questafrase: «Mio padre mi insegnò che la domanda: "Chi mi creò?" non può avere risposta,perché suggerisce immediatamente un nuovo interrogativo: "Chi creò Dio?"»Compresi allora quanto fosse errato l'argomento della Causa Prima. Se tutto deveavere una causa, anche Dio deve averla. Se niente può esistere senza una causa, alloraperché il mondo sì e Dio no? Questo principio della Causa Prima non è miglioredell'analoga teoria indù, che afferma come il mondo poggi sopra un elefante, el'elefante sopra una tartaruga. Alla domanda: «E la tartaruga dove poggia?» l'indùrispose: «Vogliamo cambiare discorso?» Non c'è dunque motivo per sostenere che ilmondo debba proprio avere una causa ed un'origine. Potrebbe anche essere sempreesistito. È soltanto la nostra scarsa immaginazione che vuole trovare un'origine atutto."
Author: Bertrand Russell

8. "I can recall vividly when I was about 13 years old, my mom and sister went on vacation for a month and left me to "man" the kitchen with notes on our how to do our favourite meals….that was something else! I was already a pro in seasoning meat and chicken but not cooking … at first I put too much water in the chicken and then poured in flour to thicken it. The concoction tasted great but it came out like porridge and was sliced like cake…i was the only one who dared to eat it...lololFrom that day forward I never placed a role on females – whether it was to cook, clean or wash, I made it my business to be able to handle myself in whatever circumstance."

Author: Cassandra Clare

I think she woke, and dressed, and washed her face in cold water, and rubbed her shaven head. I think she walked among her sisters, and for the first time saw that they were so beautiful, and she loved them.

Author: Elinor Lipman
15. "It is important…Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and ever ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that…There are many kinds of magic, after all."
Author: Erin Morgenstern

Fear of my reaction, perhaps. But when a person has lived a life like hers, a life of promiscuity, rootlessness, and substance abuse, resentment and fear tend to replace all reasonable and proper emotions, and the world becomes your enemy."
Author: J. Robert Lennon
18. "The color of his pallor, however, was a curiously basic white - unmixed, that is, with the greens and yellows of guilt or abject contrition. It was very like the standard bloodlessness in the face of a small boy who loves animals to distraction, all animals, and who has just seen his favourite, bunny-loving sister's expression as she opened the box containing his birthday present to her - a freshly caught young cobra, with a red ribbon tied in an awkward bow around its neck."
Author: J.D. Salinger
19. "That is one fine female, true?" V said.There was a low, affirmative grumble."And someone you do not want to mess with," the brother continued. "Man, you should have seen her when we came into that barn. She was standing over his body, ready to take the cop and me on with her bare hands if she had to. Like Wrath was her cub, you feel me?""Wonder if she has a sister?" Rhage asked.Phury laughed. "You wouldn't know what to do with yourself if you ran into a female of worth.""This coming from you, Celibate?" But then Hollywood rubbed the stubble on his chin, as if considering the ways of the universe. "Ah, hell, Phury, you're probably right. Still, a male can dream.""He sure can," V murmured."
Author: J.R. Ward
20. "Then Eomer was silent, and looked on his sister, as if pondering anew all the days of their past life together. But Aragorn said: "I saw also what you saw, Eomer. Few other griefs amid the ill chances of this world have more bitterness and shame for a man's heart than to behold the love of a lady so fair and brave that cannot be returned. Sorrow and pity have followed me ever since I left her desperate in Dunharrow and rode to the Paths of the Dead; and no fear upon that way was so present as the fear for what might befall her. And yet, Eomer, I say to you that she loves you more truly than me; for you she loves and knows; but in me she loves only a shadow and a thought: a hope of glory and great deeds, and lands far from the fields of Rohan."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Author: Jane Austen

Author: Jane Austen

Author: Jay Kristoff

The response to prejudice and hatred is forgiveness. To work for community is to work for humanity. To work for peace is to work for a true political solution; it is to work for the Kingdom of God. It is to work to enable every one to live and taste the secret joys of the human person united to the eternal."
Author: Jean Vanier

What I'd really like to do, I think, is lie down on this couch and take a nap."
Author: Jess Walter
27. "Help me. Please?"She gave him an abashed nod (but not nearly soabashed as she ought) and turned to Harriet. "I think that Lord Winstead refers to the rhyming qualities of the title." Harriet blinked a few times. "It doesn't rhyme.""Oh, for heaven's sake," Elizabeth burst out. " Finstead Winstead?"Harriet's gasp very nearly sucked the air from the room. "I never noticed!" she exclaimed."Obviously," her sister drawled."I must have been thinking about you when I wrotethe play," Harriet said to Daniel. From her expression, he gathered he was meant to feel flattered, so he tried to smile."
Author: Julia Quinn

Author: Markus Zusak

So, yes, I spent a lot of time talking to myself - I had this big dressing-up box and would just dress up as lots of characters and talk back to myself... Verging on schizophrenia, I suppose, if you analyse it carefully."

I'm fucking whipped...just like these other pussies.' He indicated his band mates."

And thought of Thorlot, who might be a better blacksmith than her father or brother or dead husband, or more than her son would be, but who would never be anything more than wife, sister, daughter, mother. At least she was honored, he thought, wrenching his axe free of the trellsmith's ribs. He didn't mean Thorlot, and he did not know whether he was angry at his own kind for their blindness or angry at the trolls for making him see how blind they were."
Author: Sarah Monette

49. "Cynthia had been on friendly terms with an eccentric librarian called Porlock who in the last years of his dusty life had been engaged in examining old books for miraculous misprints such as the substitution of "1" for the second "h" in the word "hither." Contrary to Cynthia, he cared nothing for the thrill of obscure predictions; all he sought was the freak itself, the chance that mimics choice, the flaw that looks like a flower; and Cynthia, a much more perverse amateur of misshapen or illicitly connected words, puns, logogriphs, and so on, had helped the poor crank to pursue a quest that in the light of the example she cited struck me as statistically insane.

Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "Dzieje kultury wykazuja, ze glupota jest siostra blizniacza rozumu, ona rosnie najbujniej nie na glebie dziewiczej ignorancji , lecz na gruncie uprawnym siódmym potem doktorów i profesorów. Wielkie absurdy nie sa wymyslane przez tych, których rozum krzata sie wokól spraw codziennych. Nic dziwnego zatem, ze wlasnie najintensywniejsi mysliciele bywali producentami najwiekszego glupstwa. / The history of culture shows that foolishness is a twin sister of wisdom. It does not flourish on the fields of pure ignorance but on the fields tirelessly plowed by doctors and professors. Great absurdities do not flourish where one is busy with everyday life. No wonder that sometimes most vigorous thinkers come up with utmost stupidities. (Dziennik 1956, XIX, Thursday)"
