2. "Leo, amar é um verbo, e não um substantivo. Não é uma coisa estabelecida de uma vez por todas: evolui, cresce, sobe, desce, afunda, como os rios escondidos no coração da terra, que no entanto nunca interrompem sua corrida em direção ao mar. Às vezes deixam a terra seca, mas embaixo, nas cavidades escuras, escoam, depois às vezes ressurgem e jorram fecundando tudo."
Author: Alessandro D'Avenia
3. "O, were I loved as I desire to be!What is there in the great sphere of the earth,Or range of evil between death and birth,That I should fear, - if I were loved by thee!All the inner, all the outer world of pain,Clear love would pierce and cleave, if thou wert mine;As I have heard that somewhere in the mainFresh-water springs come up through bitter brine.‘I were joy, not fear, clasped hand in hand with thee,To wait for death - mute - careless of all ills,Apart upon a mountain, though the surgeOf some new deluge from a thousand hillsFlung leagues of roaring foam into the gorgeBelow us, as far on as eye could see."

Not that I don't trust your extensive training." Her eyes narrow, and if looks could kill, then toxic atmospheres would be the least of my problems."
Author: Amie Kaufman

Author: Dan Ahearn
9. "There were reprints of American editorials. Liberals saw it as a resurgence of social protest and decried the discrimination, poverty, and hunger that had provoked it. Conservative columnists acidly pointed out that hungry people don't steal stereo systems first and called for a crackdown in law enforcement. All of the reasoned editorials sounded hollow in light of the perverse randomness of the event. It was as if only a thin wall of electric lighting protected the great cities of the world from total barbarism."

13. "The Soviets were not 50% right, they were entirely wrong. They weren'tquantitatively wrong about the amount of variance due to the environment,they were qualitatively wrong about what environmental manipulationscould do in the face of built-in universal human machinery. Having said this,though, I now feel no particular impulse to vote Republican.Also, it's quite possible that someday you could create perfectly unselfishpeople… if you used sufficiently advanced neurosurgery, drugs, and/orbrain-computer interfaces to engineer their brains into a new state that nocurrent human brain occupies. Whether or not this is in fact possible isn'tsomething that ideology gets to decide. The reasoning errors of pastcommunists can't prohibit any particular future technological advance frombeing possible or practical. Having said that, I feel no particular impulse toturn "liberal."
Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
14. "I miss us too. I always have and I probably always will. Sometimes there are no happy endings. No matter what, I'll be losing something, someone. But maybe that's what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice again and again, day in and day out, year after year,says more about love than never having a choice to make at all."
Author: Emily Giffin

"I don't need to tell you not to f*ck my buddy. Right." The surgeon looked around his little-glass-bottle-and-needle routine. "I'm not thinking about sex at the moment, thank you very much. But if I was, it sure as shit wouldn't be with him. So instead of worrying about who I'm tapping, how'd you like to do us all a favor and have a shower. You stink." Butch blinked. Then smiled a little. "You have balls." "And they're made of brass. Big as church bells, too."
Author: J.R. Ward

"And then Tohr said softly, "I'm lucky to have found love, I thank the Scribe Virgin every day that Wellsie is in my life."Wrath's Temper surged, set off by something he couldn't put his finger on.

21. "Today, what's normal is being redefined: from vaginal birth to surgical birth; from 'My water broke,' to 'Let's break your water;' from 'It's time' to 'It's time for the induction.' As medical anthropologist Robbie Davis-Floyd writes, 'in the early twenty-first century, we do not know what normal birth is.' Most practicing obstetricians have never witnessed an unplugged birth that wasn't an accident. Women are even beginning to deny normal birth to themselves: if 'normal' means being induced, immobilized by wires and tubes, sped up with drugs, all the while knowing that there's a good chance of surgery, well, might as well just cut to the chase, so to speak. 'Just give me a cesarean,' some are saying. And who can blame them? They want to avoid what they think of as normal birth."

25. "Thoughts hidden there? If she can, what will she do? Call the cops? Send me to the nuthouse? Do I want her to? I just want to sleep. The whole point of not talking about it, of silencing the memory, is to make it go away. It won't. I'll need brain surgery to cut it out of my head. Maybe I should wait until David Petrakis is a doctor, let him do it."
Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

32. "She gave him a happy look as he followed her out on the water-soaked wooden walk. "This could be fun," she said, then turned, took a running step, and did a couple of back flips—like a middle-school kid at recess. He stopped where he was, lust and love and fear rising up in a surge of emotion he did not, for all his years, have any idea how to deal with. "What?" she asked, a little breathless from her gymnastics. She brushed her wavy hair out of her face and gave him a serious look. "Is there something wrong?" He could hardly tell her that he was afraid because he didn't know what he'd do if something happened to her. That his sudden, unexpected reaction had brought Brother Wolf to the fore. She threw his balance off; his control—which had become almost effortless over the years—was erratic at best."

Author: R.C. Sproul

"Resumir en una mirada la virgen ausencia disperta en esta soledad y, como se corta, para recuerdo de un lugar, uno de esos mágicos nenúfares cerrados que de súbito surgen envolviendo en el hueco de su blancura una nada formada de sueños intactos, de la ventura que no llegará, y de mi aliento contenido por el temor de una aparición, partir con él: tácitamente, desentrañando poco a poco sin choque, romper ilusión, sin que el crepitar de la visible pompa de espuma enroscada a mi huida no arroje a los pies de nadie que sobrevenga la semejanza transparente del rapto de mi flor ideal."
Author: Stéphane Mallarmé

Today's Quote

The heart of the engine is the one part that I can't help you find, unfortunately. There is just no way for me to document its location; it's different in every car. I could barely find the heart of my VW-it was too confusing, and there were too many routes. Every time I thought I'd reach the center point I realized I was lost, not where I thought I was, following the wrong sunrise yet again. I wonder: Does the heart move around or something? The geographic arrangement of the engine compartment doesn't make things any easier- some of the mechanical parts are underground, nestled in the hills, and others are hidden behind the hustle and lathe of small mechanical cities. But don't cloudy-day! We'll find the heart eventually- I don't care if we need to tear the engine down to every bolt and moment to do so."
