1. "Thus also, from the other end of the history of literacy, one might say, this brilliant story from The Onion, "Nation Shudders at Large Block of Uninterrupted Text" (March 9, 2010):WASHINGTON--Unable to rest their eyes on a colorful photograph or boldface heading that could be easily skimmed and forgotten about, Americans collectively recoiled Monday when confronted with a solid block of uninterrupted text.Dumbfounded citizens from Maine to California gazed helplessly at the frightening chunk of print, unsure of what to do next. Without an illustration, chart, or embedded YouTube video to ease them in, millions were frozen in place, terrified by the sight of one long, unbroken string of English words."Why won't it just tell me what it's about?" said Boston resident Charlyne Thomson, who was bombarded with the overwhelming mass of block text late Monday afternoon. "There are no bullet points, no highlighted parts. I've looked everywhere--there's nothing here but words."

Stumbiling through their parts nursing someone else's sorrow. Grieving someone else's grief. Unable somehow to change plays. Or purchase, for a fee some cheap brand of exorcism from a conveyor with a fancy degree, who would sit them down and say in one of many ways: " Your not the sinners. You're the sinned against. You were only children.You had no control. You are the victims, not the perpetrators." It would of helped if they could of made that crossing. If only they could have worn, even temporarily, the tragic hood of victim hood"

Author: Cassandra Clare

"And you may suffer, for I will not help you with yours.""No need, darling," Matthew drawled, his words intending to push her away."I doubt you know a suitable word that will rhyme with fuck. ""Stuck," she said, turning to face him. "For two days, my lord. We are stuck with one another. Let us make the best of it.""And how do you propose we do that?""By giving each other wide berth.

You may be assured that it will be no difficulty for me, either."-Matthew and Jane"

How Hans Christian Anderson are you, anyway? As for poison apples, you'll be lucky to not get served one in your lifetime! I mean, you and your buddy here turn into giant... what are you... dogs... but you can't believe in a little earth magic?

"What bedrooms did you give to our guests?""The ones all the way . . . way . . . way on the other side of the manse."He laughed at that, hugging her tightly for giving him that ability to indulge in humor once more."Then I'd say the bedroom with the old armoire you like should suffice.""Yes, master," she teased, flicking her hand and sending them there. "Oops, one sec." She winked at him and snapped her fingers, the bottle of lotion suddenly in her hand."Show-off. You know, you are going to have to tell me how you do that.""Well, first you pump this little thing on top, then the lotion—"Legna yelped when he slapped his hand hard on her bottom, the blanket doing little to shield her from the sting of it."Gideon!

"How many times do I have to tell you that?"

"And when I'm finished," he whispered hoarsely as she wrapped her arms around him and wept brokenly, "you can help me find a way to forgive myself."Tortured by her tears, he clasped her tighter and rubbed his jaw against her temple, his voice a ravaged whisper: "I'm sorry," he told her. He cupped her face between his palms, tipping it up and gazing into her eyes, his thumbs moving over her wet cheeks. "I'm sorry." Slowly, he bent his head, covering her mouth with his. "I'm so damned sorry."

13. "On one hand she seems so agile, so athletic, and yet I've seen her appear so awkward that it embarrassed me. She gives the impression of a hard, worldly adroitness, and in some situations she's like an adolescent: rigid with ancient, middle class attitudes, unable to think for herself, falling back on old verities...victim of her family teaching, shocked by what shocks people, wanting what people usually want. She wants a home, a husband, and her idea of a husband is a man who earns a certain amount of money, helps around the garden, does the dishes...the idea of a good husband that's found in This Week magazine; a viewpoint from the most ordinary stratum, that great ubiquitous world of family life, transmitted from generation to generation. Despite her wild language."
Author: Philip K. Dick

15. "Be helpless, dumbfounded,Unable to say yes or no.Then a stretcher will come from grace to gather us up.We are too dull-eyed to see that beauty.If we say we can, we're lying.If we say No, we don't see it,That No will behead usAnd shut tight our window onto spirit.So let us rather not be sure of anything,Beside ourselves, and only that, soMiraculous beings come running to help.Crazed, lying in a zero circle, mute,We shall be saying finally,With tremendous eloquence, Lead us.When we have totally surrendered to that beauty,We shall be a mighty kindness."
Author: Rumi
16. "When Billie climbed into the taxi, Adrian paid the cab driver, then braced his forearms on the back window. "Billie. Have you forgotten?" "No." She watched the melting shift of shadows in his eyes, unable to read them. "A favor for a favor. I owe you." "I'll call you." He leaned in to catch her lips one last time in a soft, lingering kiss. Then he stood back and the taxi rolled out of the drive. Billie took a single backward glance at him standing barefoot, hands buried in his pockets, where she'd left him. God help her. Whatever he wanted, she would gladly give."
Author: Shelby Reed
17. "Once Dad took us to an amusement park in Oregon. Before I ever manifested. I plummeted twenty stories on a drop ride. Totally helpless to gravity. Unable to fly, to save myself ... I feel that same helpless terror now. Because nothing I say will divert Mom off her present course. Nothing will make her realize what she's doing to me. I'm falling. And this time nothing will save me. No mechanical device will work its wonder and jerk me back at the last minute. But she does realize, a small voice whispers through me. That's why she's doing it. That's why she brought you here. She wants me to hit ground."
