In consequence I'm inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.

Hogy ami a múltban történt, az nem fáj annyira, mint ami most van, vagy hogy a dolgokat könnyebb elviselni, ha már elmúltak, akármilyen rémesek is voltak. Ez azonban azt jelenti, hogy ha valaki már meghalt, az kevésbé szörnyu, mintha most haldoklik, márpedig ez így elég értelmetlen, nem gondolod? Ha valaki meghalt, az jóvátehetetlen és sokkal fájdalmasabb, mert attól, hogy az o haláltusája véget ért, mi még tovább szenvedünk. Hogy is ne lebegne elottünk a haláltusája, ha egyszer ez volt az utolsó dolog, amit megosztott velünk, életben maradottakkal? Ami utána következik, számunkra már megközelíthetetlen, elotte azonban még együtt voltunk vele, egy dimenzióban, o is meg mi is, és ugyanazt a levegot szívtuk."

She is a different being. He must either look up to her as superior to himself, or down upon her as inferior. When a man does the former he is more or less in love, and love to John Ingerfield is an unknown emotion. Her beauty, her charm, her social tact--even while he makes use of them for his own purposes, he despises as the weapons of a weak nature."

He pointed to the hunks of frozen orange buried in the mounds of ice cream overflowing his bowl."Peach, but--""Nuh uh. No but. It's peach. Case closed." He lifted the bowl and took a big bite."

39. "Cold men destroy women," my mother wrote me years later. "They woo them with something personable that they bring out for show, something annexed to their souls like a fake greenhouse, lead you in, and you think you see life and vitality and sun and greenness, and then when you love them, they lead you out into their real soul, a drafty, cavernous, empty ballroom, inexorably arched and vaulted and mocking you with its echoes—you hear all you have sacrificed, all you have given, landing with a loud clunk. They lock the greenhouse and you are as tiny as a figure in an architect's drawing, a faceless splotch, a blur of stick limbs abandoned in some voluminous desert of stone."
Author: Lorrie Moore
40. "What sets one Southern town apart from another, or from a Northern town or hamlet, or city high-rise? The answer must be the experience shared between the unknowing majority (it) and the knowing minority (you). All of childhood's unanswered questions must finally be passed back to the town and answered there. Heroes and bogey men, values and dislikes, are first encountered and labeled in that early environment. In later years they change faces, places and maybe races, tactics, intensities and goals, but beneath those penetrable masks they wear forever the stocking-capped faces of childhood."
Author: Maya Angelou

I did. I was in a bad place walking into that club, but then I saw you—the drunk doncellita dancing on top of the bar. I can't put into words what holding you this morning did to me." A slow, easy smile grew on his lips. "Though, I'm sure you know exactly what it did to me."
Author: Nadège Richards

At first she felt that this gave an advantage--she needed no one else-- and then she realized how it cut her off from others. Perhaps all human beings were like that."
Author: Philip Pullman
44. "Have exactly one hour to find your runaway table, get back your synco-whatsit, and install it in this engine, or the Argo II explodes, destroying Bunker Nine and most of the woods." "Basically," Leo said. Jason frowned. "We should alert the other campers. We might have to evacuate them." "No!" Leo's voice broke. "Look, the explosion won't destroy the whole camp. Just the woods. I'm pretty sure. Like sixty-five percent sure." "Well, that's a relief," Piper muttered. "Besides," Leo said, "we don't have time, and I—I can't tell the others.
