1. "We had a huge audience, we sold truckloads of albums. If we do something that's cool, people will listen to it. If we don't, we would be selling people short."
Author: Andy Taylor
2. "What would it mean in practice to eliminate all the 'negative people' from one's life? It might be a good move to separate from a chronically carping spouse, but it is not so easy to abandon the whiny toddler, the colicky infant, or the sullen teenager. And at the workplace, while it's probably advisable to detect and terminate those who show signs of becoming mass killers, there are other annoying people who might actually have something useful to say: the financial officer who keeps worrying about the bank's subprime mortgage exposure or the auto executive who questions the company's overinvestment in SUVs and trucks. Purge everyone who 'brings you down,' and you risk being very lonely, or, what is worse, cut off from reality."
Author: Barbara Ehrenreich
3. "MRS. RASKINS: …My kidneys are brand new. Courtesy of a young woman who stepped into an oncoming car. LUKE: How terrible. Of all the things in the world, one of the worst misfortunes is to be struck with absentmindedness. MRS. RASKINS: If she didn't cause the driver to crash, it might very well have been a misfortune. But considering he wasn't an organ donor, I'd say it showed remarkable poetic justice on her part."

"If I'mstunned, dazzled, and breathless, then how the hell am I supposed to greetyou? By definition, won't I be struck dumb?"She laughed.

7. "If there's a single idea I emphasize when people ask about writing, it's that there's no right way to produce a book. But I do think that whatever you do, you should do regularly, whether it's waking up at midnight and drinking vodka or waking up at dawn and drinking tea, whether it's sitting in a monkish study or writing on the back of a flatbed truck. The analogy I like is children's literature: in a lot of children's books, there's a huge institutional structure (Hogwarts, for example) whose presiding safety allows the children's imagination to run free. The more consistent your habits are – and this ties into having your tools nailed down – the more secure your brain will be to run free and create."
Author: Charles Finch

11. "When I read Shakespeare I am struck with wonder that such trivial people should muse and thunder in such lovely language."
Author: D.H. Lawrence
12. "Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they look for a place to dump it. And if you let them, they'll dump it on you. So when someone wants to dump on you, don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Believe me. You'll be happier."
Author: David J. Pollay
13. "Yuki?" Calvin asked."Yeah?" I asked turning back to him."Thanks for giving me a chance," he said and smiling his toothy grin he started walking back to his truck.Who else is going to dig through a compost heap with me? It must be love."

14. "Had been deeply struck.... by the damage wreaked upon mathematics in France by the first world war, when "a misguided notion of equality in the face of sacrifice" led to the slaughter of the country's young scientific elite. In the light of this, he believed he had a duty, not just to himself but also to civilization, to devote his life to mathematics. Indeed, he argued, to let himself be diverted from the subject would be a sin. When others raised the objection "but if everybody were to behave like you...", he replied that this possibility seemed to him so implausible that he did not feel obliged to take it into account."
Author: Edward Frenkel

"(knitting while on a motorcycle)"For several years she knitted in secret (my father would not approve; she was to concentrate on motorcycling and LEAN into the curves, etc), and used a small circular needle (socks and mittens) in order to keep the knitting in her pocket until they were under way; then she leaned back slightly so Gaffer couldn't feel the movement of her hands.On the interstate one day, they were slowly passing a semi and my father happened to see the truck driver laugh and point out my mother's knitting to his passenger. Whoops-"
Author: Elizabeth Zimmermann
16. "In the meantime the groans changed into the protracted, thunderous roar by which all living creatures are struck with terror, and the nerves of people, who do not know what fear is, shake, just as the window-panes rattle from distant cannonading."
Author: Henryk Sienkiewicz
17. "You may be a redneck if... you have spent more on your pickup truck than on your education."
Author: Jeff Foxworthy
18. "I've done smarter things in my life. Once, for example, I threw myself out of a moving car in order to take on a truckload of lycanthropes singlehandedly."~Harry Dresden"
Author: Jim Butcher
19. "Above the comforts of Base Camp, the expedition in fact became an almost Calvinistic undertaking. The ratio of misery to pleasure was greater by an order of magnitude than any mountain I'd been on; I quickly came to understand that climbing Everest was primarily about enduring pain. And in subjecting ourselves to week after week of toil, tedium and suffering, it struck me that most of us were probably seeking above all else, something like a state of grace."
Author: Jon Krakauer
20. "The unchanging Man of history is wonderfully adaptable cloth by his power of endurance and in his capacity for detachment. The fact seems to be that the play of his destiny is too great for his fears and too mysterious for his understanding. Were the trump of the Last Judgement to sound suddenly on a working day the musician at his piano would go on with his performance of Beethoven's Sonata and the cobbler at his stall stick to his last in undisturbed confidence in the virtues of the leather. And with perfect propriety. For what are we to let ourselves be disturbed by an angel's vengeful music too mighty for our ears and too awful for our terrors ? Thus it happens to us to be struck suddenly by the lightning of wrath. The reader will go on reading if the book pleases him and the critic will go on criticizing with that faculty of detachment born perhaps from a sense of infinite littleness and wich is yet the only faculty that seems to assimilate man to the immortal gods."
Author: Joseph Conrad
21. "My dream was to go to Nashville. I had my sights set on my dream. I used to have an '89 Toyota Ford truck. On the front of the truck, I had this license plate with cowboy boots and a guitar that I had airbrushed at Wal-Mart. It said 'Chasin' A Dream.' That was kind of my motto."
Author: Josh Turner
22. "Edith stared at the ceiling, contemplating the oddness of life. Here she was with this man, whom she hardly knew when she really thought about it, asleep, naked, beside her. She pondered that central truth, which must have struck many brides from Marie Antoinette to Wallis Simpson, that whatever the political, social or financial advantages of a great marriage, there comes a moment when everyone leaves the room and you are left alone with a stranger who has the legal right to copulate with you. She was not at all sure that she had fully negotiated this simple fact until then."
Author: Julian Fellowes
23. "She smiled. "You're looking hot, dude."Gregori strutted toward the door. "I'm too sexy for my cape, too sexy for my fangs. Too sexy." He whirled in a circle, then struck a disco pose with a hand pointing at the ceiling. "Too sexy!" He left with a flourish of his cape.Shanna grinned. "I think he enjoys being a vampire."
Author: Kerrelyn Sparks

25. "But she did not take her eyes from the wheels of the second car. And exactly at the moment when the midpoint between the wheels drew level with her, she threw away the red bag, and drawing her head back into her shoulders, fell on her hands under the car, and with a light movement, as though she would rise immediately, dropped on her knees. And at the instant she was terror-stricken at what she was doing. 'Where am I? What am I doing? What for?' She tried to get up, to throw herself back; but something huge and merciless struck her on the head and dragged her down on her back."
Author: Leo Tolstoy

Author: Lindsay Fox
27. "The camp offices stood in the centre, adjoining the shrine to Jupiter that held the legion's Eagle. In the camps of the Vth Macedonica and the VIth Ferrata, these buildings were of grey stone, dressed by Gaulish masons to such smoothness that a man could run his hand down them and not feel the joins.The legions' respective signs of the bull and the eagle had been carved thereon with such pride and perfection that men copied them on their shields and carved them on the bedheads in the barracks.At Raphana, the camp office of the XIIth Fulminata and IVth Scythians before which we dismounted was built of the local baked mud, and some drunkard with a poor eye for detail had etchedthe Scythians' sign of the goat and the Fulminata's crossed thunderbolts together, so that it seemed as if the goat were thunderstruck, or else that lightning grew from its anus. Both applied equally; each was unthinkable in a legion which had any pride in itself."
Author: M.C. Scott
28. "The throw truck driver and car-lot owner stood there, peering at us. Hier voice came through, muffled by the glass. ''You find what you're looking for?'' Grace reached across and rolled down the window. She was talking to him but looking at me, gaze intense, when she said, ''Absolutely."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
29. "It struck me again the ways Angelo and I were like them. Angelo was my angel, and I was ever on the ground, looking up at him. It was no wonder Jon and I hadn't been able to make things work--we'd both longed for something grander. And it was no wonder Cole and Angelo had been drawn to each other, and yet, they had only brushed wings in the night, neither one of them able to stop in their flight."
Author: Marie Sexton
30. "They came here on Sunday, 30th June, 1940, after bombing us two days before. They said they hadn't meant to bomb us; they mistook our tomato lorries on the pier for army trucks. How they came to think that strains the mind. They bombed us, killing some thirty men, women, and children - one among them was my cousin's boy. He had sheltered underneath his lorry when he first saw the planes dropping bombs, and it exploded and caught fire. They killed men in their lifeboats at sea. They strafed the Red Cross ambulances carrying our wounded. When no one shot back at them, they saw the British had left us undefended. They just flew in peaceably two days later and occupied us for five years."
Author: Mary Ann Shaffer
31. "Mother yelled, 'Christ, this is the craziest snatch'n'grab I've ever seen!''It's desperation over style, Mother.' He hurried over to the tail end of the suspended tanker truck, to the two cables that rose up from it to the rim of the massive moat.'But did you have to destroy everything?' she shouted.'I haven't destroyed everything yet. Hurry up, this isn't over! This way!"
Author: Matthew Reilly
32. "I found one remaining box of comics which I had saved. When I opened it up and that smell came pouring out, that old paper smell, I was struck by a rush of memories, a sense of my childhood self that seemed to be contained in there."
Author: Michael Chabon

Author: Nicholas Sparks
34. "Staring at the stars was like staring backward in time, since some stars are so far away that their light takes millions of years just to reach us. That we see stars not as they look now, but as they were when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The whole concept just struck me as…amazing somehow."
Author: Nicholas Sparks
35. "Paper MatchesMy aunts washed dishes while the unclessquirted each other on the lawn withgarden hoses. Why are we in here,I said, and they are out there?That's the way it is,said Aunt Hetty, the shriveled-up one.I have the rages that small animals have,being small, being animal.Written on me was a message,"At Your Service,"like a book of paper matches.One by one we were taken outand struck.We come bearing supper,our heads on fire."
Author: Paulette Jiles
36. "He struck his own fire, listened to the night wind roar through the trees. Sometimes, when he could see it, he stared at the Conriyan encampment and counted fires like an idiot child. „Always number your foemen," his father had once told him, „by the glitter of their fires." Sometimes he gazed at the stars and wondered if they too were his enemies."
Author: R. Scott Bakker
37. "I added pieces the same way I'd constructed my body, from the inside out: boy-cut panties first (lacy), bra (sheer), stockings (thigh high), knee-length leather skirt (black), lime green midriff-baring shirt (polyester). David leaned against the wall and watched this striptease-in-reverse with fabulously expressive eyebrows slowly climbing toward heaven, I finished it off with a pair of strappy lime green three-inch heels, something from the Manolo Blahnik spring collection that I'd seen two months ago in Vogue.He looked me over, blinked behind the glasses, and asked, "You're done?"I took offense, "Yeah. You with the fashion police?""I don't think I'd pass the entrance exam." The eyebrows didn't come down. "I never knew you were so…""Fashionable?""Not really the word I was thinking."I struck a pose and looked at him from under my supernaturally lustrous eyelashes. "Come on, you know it's sexy.""And that's sort of my point."

39. "The campus, an academy of trees,under which some hand, the wind's I guess,had scattered the pale lightof thousands of spring beauties,petals stained with pink veins;secret, blooming for themselves.We sat among them.Your long fingers, thin body,and long bones of improbable genius;some scattered gene as Kafka must have had.Your deep voice, this passing dust of miracles.That simple that was myself, half conscious,as though each moment was a pagewhere words appeared; the bent hammer of the typestruck against the moving ribbon.The light air, the restless leaves;the ripple of time warped by our longing.There, as if we were paintedby some unknown impressionist."
Author: Ruth Stone

42. "Instead of scaring him, that threat set fire to his temper. No one threatened Nick Gautier."I'm not afraid of you. You want to fight... bring it."Something struck the wall by his face. Hard. It was so close to him that whatever it was grazed his nose.In spite of his bravado, that actually scared him blind. Hard to fight something when you couldn't see it... Jack-rabbiting up the stairs, he went into Kyrian's training room instead of his office.Nick slammed the door and threw himself against it, arms wide to keep it shut."
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
43. "Futures can and do change, something as simple as you're supposed to turn right down a street one day... In your bones u know it, and yet for reasons no one understands, you decide to debunk fate and go left. Now instead of meeting your spouse of your dreams and having a house full of kids, you get flattened by an ice-cream truck and spend the next 5 years in physical therapy recovering from the injuries; or worse you die from it. And all cause you exercised free will and turned the opposite way on a whim."
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
44. "I'm sorry, Olivia, for hurting you," he said hoarsely and my heart heaved in mychest. Why was his voice so gentle? Why wasn't he screaming at me? I was the onewho did the hurting. It was me. My fault. My sin. My mess. "You will never see me again after today." He paused and his next words struck me so deeply I would never recover from them. "I will love again, Olivia, you will hurt forever. What you've done is…You are worthless because you make yourself that way. You will remember me every day for the rest of your life because I was the one and you threw me away." And then he left."

"On the TV and in the newspapers all we hear and read is 'live your life or the terrorists win' and it sounds great, I'm all for that, except my kids won't ask for a bathroom pass because the faculty facilities are on the first floor of the building and the MPs patrolling the second floor won't go downstairs on their shift—so I've got middle school kids afraid to take a piss because there might be a soldier in the stall next to them carrying a loaded M- 16—but hell yes, I'm all for 'live your life' and screw the terrorists, and screw all the countries who harbor and support them. I'm on board with that, except I've got these kids who stay home now, because they're scared riding a bus with soldiers carrying guns, knowing that one soldier isn't enough, so there's a military truck full of soldiers with even bigger guns following the bus 'just in case."
Author: Tucker Elliot
50. "Come, Spirits" she murmured; and was instantly fortified by a sense of the presence of the things that aren't there. There were the beautiful drowned statues, there were the glens and hills of an undiscovered country; there were divine musical notes, which, struck high up in the air, made one's heart beat with delight at the assurance that the world of things that aren't there was splendidly vigorous and far more real than the other. She felt that one never spoke of the things that mattered, but carried them about, until a note of music, or a sentence or a sight, joined hands with them."
Author: Virginia Woolf
