1. "Umm, well do I have to tell you how it's done?" I tease, as I get on my knees and lean over him, . A wide smile spreads over his face as I straddle his lap."Oh, are you taking dominance? I think I like that." He grips his hands on my hips, pulling me as close as he can get."
Author: Annie Brewer
2. "Since they weren't sleepy and nothing had been left unsaid, they began to read poetry to each other, taking turns like children and enjoying it. Bachir had a lovely voice, one that was already that of a man. He knew many poems by heart. He lovingly recited Victor Hugo, with warmth Rimbaud's Le bateau ivre, and poems written by young people going into battle; he then moved on to the poets of liberty - Rimbaud again, Eluard, and Desnos."

3. "There is not a young man in our community who would not be willing to travel from here to England to be married right, if he understood things as they are; there is not a young woman in our community, who loves the Gospel and wishes its blessings, that would be married in any other way; they would live unmarried until they could be married as they should be, [even] if they lived until they were as old as Sarah before she had Isaac born to her [see Genesis 17:17].

I wish we all understood this in the light in which heaven understands it."

But only when one truly gives of himself and without compulsion."
Author: James Michael Pratt
9. "As for human contact, I'd lost all appetite for it. Mankind has, as you may have noticed, become very inventive about devising new ways for people to avoid talking to each other and I'd been taking full advantage of the most recent ones. I would always send a text message rather than speak to someone on the phone. Rather than meeting with any of my friends, I would post cheerful, ironically worded status updates on Facebook, to show them all what a busy life I was leading. And presumably people had been enjoying them, because I'd got more than seventy friends on Facebook now, most of them complete strangers. But actual, face-to-face, let's-meet-for-a-coffee-and-catch-up sort of contact? I seemed to have forgotten what that was all about."
Author: Jonathan Coe

'I should be given a waiver because of my heritage.' Without taking his eyes from mine, he reached for the ball and dribbled a few times. Smoothly he turned and executed a perfect jump shot. It was a show-off move, looking all the better for being done in a cowboy hat, and I had to laugh as Hardy glanced at me with an expectant grin. 'Am I supposed to praise you now?' I asked. He retrieved the ball and dribbled slowly around me. 'Yeah, now would be a good time.' 'That was awesome.'-Hardy and Liberty"
Author: Lisa Kleypas
14. "I don't like taking from anyone. I'd rather be a giver, though not for any worthy reason. It's about control, obviously. If I give, I control; if I take, I am controlled. If someone offers me something for free I am at once suspicious."
Author: Margaret Forster
15. "Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives. But rather than recoil in horror, he reaches out in kindness and says, "I can clean that if you want." And from the basin of his grace, he scoops a palm full of mercy and washes away our sin."

Author: Stuart Appleby
19. "Oh, and Jack said to tell you something…what was it? Ah…he said, ‘If the Mets get anywhere near home base, it'll be the last game they ever play.'" She laughed. "I don't know a lot about baseball. Did that make sense?" Daniel gulped. "Perfect sense." In other words, touch my daughter and die, asshole. "See you tomorrow, Daniel." "Bye, sunshine." Daniel hung up the phone and stared off into space. Obviously Jack was trying to kill him. Take my beautiful daughter out, sit next to her for hours on end, and bring her home untouched. The prom date from hell. Matt and Brent came up behind him. "How'd it go?" Matt asked. "Oh, you know…perfect." He turned to Brent. "I'm taking her to the game tomorrow night." Brent's mouth dropped open. "What the hell? I thought you were taking me?" "Tough shit. She smells better than you."

"There, on the soft sand, a few feet away from our elders, we would sprawl all morning, in a petrified paroxysm of desire, and take advantage of every blessed quirk in space and time to touch each other: her hand, half-hidden in the sand, would creep toward me, its slender brown fingers sleepwalking nearer and nearer; then, her opalescent knee would start on a long cautious journey; sometimes a chance rampart built by younger children granted us sufficient concealment to graze each other's salty lips; these incomplete contacts drove our healthy and inexperienced young bodies to such a state of exasperation that not even the cold blue water, under which we still clawed at each other, could bring relief."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Author: Will Ferguson
