1. "Then I went off to Southern Methodist University in Dallas. They had a really wonderful theatre department."
Author: Beth Henley
2. "Wash your dress in running water. dry it on the southern side of a rock. let them have four guesses and make them all wrong. take a fistful of snow in the summer heat. cook haluski in hot sweet butter. drink cold milk to clean your insides. be careful when you wake: breathing lets them know how asleep you are. don't hang your coat from a hook in the door. ignore curfew. remember weather by the voice of the wheel. do not become the fool they need you to become. change your name. lose your shoes. practice doubt. dress in oiled cloth around sickness. adore darkness. turn sideways in the wind. the changing of stories is a cheerful affair. give the impression of not having known."
Author: Colum McCann
3. "What white Southerners called "redemption" and others deemed simply the return to power of the Democrats, who sufficiently intimidated, cheated and otherwise discouraged Republicans, including most of the freedmen, that they counted for little in Southern politics. With any Democratic presidential nominee guaranteed the South, any Republican had to perform overwhelmingly in the North."
Author: H.W. Brands
4. "They all watched in silence as the tall Southerner strode towards the doorway. George Peabody,a hot-headed boy who couldn't resist making one remark from the safety of the corner, muttered an insult under his breath.Heath stopped and turned around, giving him a measuring glance, but before he could make a reply, Lucy rounded fiercely on the boy. "George Peabody, you button your mouth!""He'd better see to his breeches first," Heath said, and touched the brim of his hat respectfully to Lucy before slipping out the door.Automatically they all looked at George's trousers, discovering that one of the buttons did indeed need to be fastened. The tension broke, and as the flushed boy spun around to restore his injured dignity, they all chuckled. Even Daniel had to smile. "Impudent Reb," he said ruefully, and no one disagreed."

5. "To all the eyes that observed the handsome couple,their conversation was circumspect, but had it been heard, it would have caused more than one pair of ears to burn. Lucy crooned to Heath in a faked Southern drawl, making wicked observations, whispering bits on nonsense and entertaining him with veiled hints about the black silk pantalets she assured him she was wearing."You don't even own black silk pantalets," Heath said, his eyes dancing with amusement at her antics."I most certainly do. I had them made for me.You said you didn't like plain old white. And I have on a matching corset-""I almost believe you.""You'll believe me later," she purred, and he laughed outright."What's gotten into you tonight?""nothing.It's just that I've finally decided something.""Oh?What have you decided?""Something private.I can't tell you.""Ah. Then your decision must involve me, or you wouldn't keep it a secret.""In every way," she said, and smiled at him in a way that made his breath catch."

6. "What, in nature," Kit asked, "is the most beautiful thing you've seen? Or the most terrible?""The Dismals," Giles answered promptly. "A beautiful aberration in the lay of the land--North Alabama. A section mysteriously lowered, strewn with boulders, ferny, mossy, cooler--the vegetation, they say, typical of Canada. There the creek runs clear, but all other Alabama rivers and waterways are muddy with sediment. I even like the name--the Dismals. An eternal place, disjunct with the climate, the time, and its location.""You think being dismal is an attractive association with eternity?" I asked."It is a cool Eden in the Southern summer heat. What's yours, Una?""The Kentucky hills in spring. Layers of pink and white--redbud and dogwood.""And you?" Giles asked Kit."Stars," he said. That was all."
