2. "The territorial aristocracy of former ages was either bound by law, or thought itself bound by usage, to come to the relief of its serving-men and to relieve their distress. But the manufacturing aristocracy of our age first impoverishes and debases the men who serve it and then abandons them to be supported by the charity of the public. This is a natural consequence of what has been said before. Between the workman and the master there are frequent relations, but no real association.I am of the opinion, on the whole, that the manufacturing aristocracy which is growing up under our eyes is one of the harshest that ever existed in the world; but at the same time it is one of the most confined and least dangerous. Nevertheless, the friends of democracy should keep their eyes anxiously fixed in this direction; for if ever a permanent inequality of conditions and aristocracy again penetrates into the world, it may be predicted that this is the gate by which they will enter."
Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
3. "Colleague, given that I'm detached to go hunting bandits, I'd be grateful for the continued loan of your horses until we return. A squadron of cavalry could make all the difference when we're chasing around the forests after shadows.'Licinius gave him a jaundiced look. ‘You've got sticky fingers, young man. Every soldier that comes into contact with your cohort seems to end up as part of it. Hamian archers, borrowed cavalrymen. I'll even wager you that the half-century of legionaries Dubnus borrowed from the Sixth will end up in your establishment. And yes, you can extend the loan if you think it'll do you any good, and you can keep that decurion you promoted to command them."
Author: Anthony Riches
4. "Bout time," she huffed, but her voice sounded thick and emotional too."I was at the hospital all day yesterday, but they wouldn't let me see you. I bolted past security but they called code ninetynine and chased me down, they escorted me out in handcuffs. The way I see it, the only criminal here is your mom. No visitors? I'm your best friend, or did she not get the memo every year for the past eleven? Next time I'm over, I'm going to lay into that woman."~Vee"
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
5. "Will you be at the harvest, Among the gatherers of new fruits?Then you must begin today to remakeYour mental and spiritual world,And join the warriors and celebrantsOf freedom, realizers of great dreams. You can't remake the worldWithout remaking yourself.Each new era begins within.It is an inward event,With unsuspected possibilitiesFor inner liberation.We could use it to turn onOur inward lights.We could use it to use even the darkAnd negative things positively.We could use the new eraTo clean our eyes,To see the world differently,To see ourselves more clearly.Only free people can make a free world.Infect the world with your light.Help fulfill the golden prophecies.Press forward the human genius.Our future is greater than our past."

6. "I'm my mother's first child, born when she was almost fourteen years old."Think of it," I said to Laura when I turned twelve. "I'm almost Mother Sarah's age when she was married."Laura looked at me, her squinty eyes even more narrowed. "You could have your own old man as a husband," she said."Shut up," I had said.And she had laughed."

7. "He studied my appearance carefully. "You cut your hair." "Yes. Do you like it?" "That depends. How long is it?" I pulled a curl down and showed him it ended just past my shoulder. He grunted, "That's still long enough, so I like it." "Long enough for what?" "Long enough for a man to run his hands through."
Author: Colleen Houck
8. "Come on, Avery." Fresh tears stained her cheeks. Her voice shook. "Wake up,damn it!" She sobbed, rocking forward and back, her arms wrapping tightlyaround his big body. "Don't you want to shout at me for disobeying you, youoverbearing, domineering male?"She squeezed her eyes shut and bit hard on her lip. He couldn't die. He was toostubborn, too alive, too vigorous. And she couldn't lose him. She loved him toomuch."I… am a… gentleman," she heard him gasp. "I never shout at women."

Author: Criss Jami
10. "The work of human thought should withstand the test of brutal, naked reality. If it cannot, it is worthless. Probably only those things are worthwhile which can preserve their validity in the eyes of a man threatened with instant death."
Author: Czeslaw Milosz
11. "We can put it this way: the man who has faith is the man who is no longer looking at himself and no longer looking to himself. He no longer looks at anything he once was. He does not look at what he is now. He does not even look at what he hopes to be as the result of his own efforts. He looks entirely to the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work, and rests on that alone. He has ceased to say, "Ah yes, I used to commit terrible sins but I have done this and that." He stops saying that. If he goes on saying that, he has not got faith. Faith speaks in an entirely different manner and makes a man say, "Yes I have sinned grievously, I have lived a life of sin, yet I know that I am a child of God because I am not resting on any righteousness of my own; my righteousness is in Jesus Christ and God has put that to my account."
Author: D. Martyn Lloyd Jones

Author: Daisaku Ikeda
13. "They all went out by a private door and found themselves in a smaller but gorgous room. The Prince tapped on the table and instantly two menials in red tunics appeared. Bring three glasses of champaigne commanded the prince and some ices he added majestikally. The goods appeared as if by majic and the prince drew out a cigar case and passed it round.One grows weary of Court Life he remarked.Ah yes agreed the earl.It upsets me said the prince lapping up his strawberry ice all I want is peace and quiut and a little fun and here I am tied down to this life he said taking off his crown being royal has many painfull drawbacks."
Author: Daisy Ashford
14. "We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and whenAlthough I wasnt there, he said I was his friendWhich came as some surprise I spoke into his eyesI thought you died alone, a long long time agoOh no, not meI never lost controlYoure face to faceWith the man who sold the worldI laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back homeI searched for form and land, for years and years I roamedI gazed a gazely stare at all the millions hereWe must have died along, a long long time agoWho knows? not meWe never lost controlYoure face to faceWith the man who sold the worldWho knows? not meWe never lost controlYoure face to faceWith the man who sold the world"
Author: David Bowie
15. "Bette Davis lived long enough to hear the Kim Carnes song, 'Bette Davis Eyes'. The lyrics to that song were not very interesting. But the fact of the song was the proof of an acknowledgement that in the twentieth century we lived through an age of immense romantic personalities larger than life, yet models for it, too - for good or ill. Like twin moons, promising a struggle and an embrace, the Davis eyes would survive her - and us. Kim Carnes has hardly had a consistent career, but that one song - sluggish yet surging, druggy and dreamy - became an instant classic. It's like the sigh of the islanders when they behold their Kong. And I suspect it made the real eyes smile, whatever else was on their mind."
Author: David Thomson
16. "Shouldering the duffel bag with the Marine Corps bulldog, Old Man knocked Jan's photo off the bed table. He turned to stone staring down at the photo. His face then splintered into hurt. Tears seeped into his eyes. He grappled for the nearest bedpost and slumped forward on extended arms. His shoulders jerked and head sagged a little while his heart broke. Old Man cried the mute cry of men of his generation."
Author: Ed Lynskey
17. "Each man cannot judge except by himself," he said, blushing. "There will be entire freedom when it makes no difference whether one lives or does not live. That is the goal to everything.""The goal? But then perhaps no one will even want to live?""No one," he said resolutely."Man is afraid of death because he loves life, that's how I understand it," I observed, "and that is what nature tells us.""That is base, that is the whole deceit!" his eyes began to flash. "Life is pain, life is fear, and man is unhappy. Now all is pain and fear. Now man loves life because he loves pain and fear. That's how they've made it. Life now is given in exchange for pain and fear, and that is the whole deceit. Man now is not yet the right man. There will be a new man, happy and proud. He for whom it will make no difference whether he lives or does not live, he will be the new man. He who overcomes pain and fear will himself be God. And this God will not be."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
18. "Fearghus entered what he now considered her chamber, but immediately ducked the book flung at his head. Clearly she'd been waiting for him. And she was not happy."He's the one supposed to be helping me," she roared at him."Did you just throw a book at me? In my own den?""Yes. And I'd throw it again!"Fearghus scratched his head in confusion. He'd never met a human brave enough—or stupid enough, depending on your point of view—to challenge him. "But," he croaked out, amazed, "I'm a dragon.""And I have tits. It means nothing to me!"
Author: G.A. Aiken
19. "I was with her when she died," Ned reminded the king. "She wanted to come home, to rest beside Brandon and Father." He could hear her still at times. Promise me, she had cried, in a room that smelled of blood and roses. Promise me, Ned. The fever had taken her strength and her voice had been faint as a whisper, but when he gave her his word, the fear had gone out of his sister's eyes. Ned remembered the way she smiled then, how tightly her fingers had clutched his as she gave up her hold on life, the rose petals spilling from her palm, dead and black. After that he remembered nothing. They had found him still holding her body, silent with grief. The little crannogman, Howland Reed, had taken her hand from his."
Author: George R.R. Martin
20. "Good preservation is a life preserver thrown to us in a shipwreck. Good preservation keeps us in touch with the graces of this life. It's bricks and mortar, yes. It's arguments about true colors and authenticity and representation. But true preservation is like the hand that shelters a fire from the wind. It protects the spark of life." -- Howard Mansfield, The Same Ax, Twice"
Author: Howard Mansfield
21. "I had never seen eyes like his. Dark green. Smoldering. Ready to undress a woman with a single glance."
Author: J.C. Reed
22. "The eyes are one of the most powerful tools a woman can have. With one look, she can relay the most intimate message. After the connection is made, words cease to exist."
Author: Jennifer Salaiz
23. "Had we been wed in Scotland, we could have spoken the old vows. Do you know what words, what promises we would have spoken had we been there, not here, this morning?" His hand slid up to her cheek, cupping it as if to soften the effect of his tone, and as Elizabeth gazed at his hard, beloved face in the candlelight her shyness and fears slid away. "No," she whispered."I would have said to you," he told her quietly and without shame, "'With my body, I thee worship.'"He spoke the words now, as a vow, and when Elizabeth realized it, the poignancy of it made her eyes sting with tears. Turning her face into his hand, she kissed his palm, covering his hand with hers, and a groan tore from his chest, his mouth descending on hers in a kiss that was both rough and tender as he parted her lips for the demanding invasion of his tongue."
Author: Judith McNaught
24. "You want to …?" His other eye popped open as I started to slide down his body, intent on exploring that part of him which had given me so much pleasure. He grabbed me before I was able to move four inches. I looked up, worried that I had done something wrong. A familiar strained, tense look was on his face, his eyes screwed up tight. I looked down at his penis. It was no longer in a resting state. "I thought you were sated?"I was. Until you went and mentioned doing that to me. No! Don't touch me there, woman! For the love of – grk!"A half hour later, Gabriel, his arm wrapped around me because my legs were unusually weak, hustled me toward the house with a grim look on his face.I will beat this," he muttered. "I am a wyvern, I am strong. I will control my needs long enough to give you pleasure, and you will enjoy it, dammit!"I said nothing, but I smiled. A lot. [May and Gabriel, pg. 307]"
Author: Katie MacAlister
25. "Yes, I have a driver's license."I leaned back against the wall, sighing. "Man, that must be so cool." "It ranks right up there with lockers. In fact, sometimes I put my license inside my locker, and it's so cool I worry that the whole thing might explode with the sheer coolness of it all."
Author: Kiersten White
26. "At the advent of danger there are always two voices that speak with equal force in the human heart: one very reasonably invites a man to consider the nature of the peril and the means of escaping it; the other, with a still greater show of reason, argues that it is too depressing and painful to think of the danger since it is not in man's power to foresee everything and avert the general march of events, and it is better therefore to shut one's eyes to the disagreeable until it actually comes, and to think instead of what is pleasant. When a man is alone he generally listens to the first voice; in the company of his fellow-men, to the second."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
27. "So that is what my dream meant! Pashenka is what I ought tohave been but failed to be. I lived for men on the pretext ofliving for God, while she lived for God imagining that she livesfor men. Yes, one good deed--a cup of water given withoutthought of reward--is worth more than any benefit I imagined Iwas bestowing on people. But after all was there not some shareof sincere desire to serve God?' he asked himself, and the answerwas: 'Yes, there was, but it was all soiled and overgrown bydesire for human praise. Yes, there is no God for the man wholives, as I did, for human praise. I will now seek Him!"
Author: Leo Tolstoy
28. "Her sabah uyandigimizda, günlük 86 bin 400 saniyelik kredi açiliyor bize; aksam yataga yattigimizda yarina hiçbir sey kalmiyor, gün içinde yasanmayan kaçmis, dün bitmis oluyor. Her sabah bu büyü yeniden basliyor, hesabimiza yeniden yasamin 86 bin 400 saniyesi yatiriliyor ve su degismez kuralla oynuyoruz: Banka, önceden uyarmadan, istedigi zaman hesabimizi kapatabilir: Yasam her an bitebilir. Öyleyse, günlük 86 bin 400 saniyemizi ne yapiyoruz? Yasamin saniyeleri, dolarlardan çok daha önemli degil mi?"
Author: Marc Levy
29. "Gradually, strength returned to Yorda's body and she gripped his hand. Ico gripped back. Yorda sat up on the floor, but her eyes were still distant. Suddenly, Ico felt cold. A chill emanated from Yorda's body as he held her in his arms, as though she were a pitcher that had just been filled with ice water. He had the sensation that something else was inside the girl, pushing aside the Yorda he knew."
Author: Miyuki Miyabe
30. "I see, indeed I know, that in some sense God is love, and God is wisdom, and God is creative action, yes and God is beauty; but what God actually is, whether the maker of all things, or the fragrance of all things, or just a dream in our own hearts, I have not the art to know. Neither have you, I believe; nor any man, nor any spirit of our humble stature."
Author: Olaf Stapledon
31. "Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man's original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and rebellion."
Author: Oscar Wilde
32. "All right," he muttered and threw his legs over the side of the bed. He pinched the bridge ofhis nose, squeezing his eyes shut. "Did anyone call VF?""No, we didn't want to get busted," the short, stocky human replied."Good, go downstairs and tell everyone it's cool. He won't hurt anyone. He's like a pettiger.""Tigers eat people," the short, stocky human said."Only if you piss him off, so don't give him a reason."
Author: Patricia Lynne
33. "I cannot be knownBetter than you know me Your eyes in which we sleepWe togetherHave made for my man's gleamA better fate than for the common nights Your eyes in which I travelHave given to signs along the roadsA meaning alien to the earthIn your eyes who reveal to usOur endless solitude Are no longer what they thought themselves to be You cannot be knownBetter than I know you."
Author: Paul Éluard
34. "I'll see you there little Red." Fane's voice faded out of her mind and she could feel his humour. Oh, wasn't he just too cute, picking up on her two best friends' idea of a sick joke - to turn her into the little girl who almost wound up as the wolf's dinner."My, what big eyes you have, wolf-man," Jacque said out loud, unable to stop her sarcasm from boiling up."The better to see you with love," Jen chimed in."What big ears you have!" Sally continued their comic relief."The better to hear you with my love," Jen followed."What big teeth you have!" Sally mocked, her hands on either side of her face."The better to eat you with my love," Jen cackled, but she wasn't finished. True to Jen form she added her own twisted sense of humour. "My, what a big-"Sally slapped a hand over her mouth, quickly realising where Jen was going with that statement."

35. "Can we get back to work now?" Haley asked, sounding innocent, but Zoe didn't miss the woman's lips twitchingor the humor sparkling in her eyes. Something told her that this woman truly enjoyed torturing her husband."For god sake's, my little grasshopper, you love the Yankees more than I do! What the hell is going on?" He turned accusing eyes on Zoe. "How dare you brainwash my wife?" he hissed."A re you going to leave so that we can get some work done?" Haley demanded, turning her attention to the computer."No," he said stubbornly, folding his arms over his chest, glaring at them."Buttercream frosting," Haley said softly, never taking her eyes away from her computer screen.Jason licked his lips as he looked his pregnant wife over hungrily. "Tonight?" he croaked out."If you're good," Haley said, with a small shrug. "But you have to leave-""Bye," Jason said quickly, cutting her off and rushing out of the trailer just as fast as he came."

36. "Close your eyes now,' the blind man said to me. I did it. I closed them just like he said.'Are they closed?' he said. 'Don't fudge.''They're closed,' I said.'Keep them that way,' he said. He said, 'Don't stop now. Draw.' So we kept on with it. His fingers rode my fingers as my hand went over the paper. It was like nothing else in my life up to now.Then he said, 'I think that's it. I think you got it,' he said. 'Take a look. What do you think?'But I had my eyes closed. I thought I'd keep them that way for a little longer. I thought it was something I ought to do.'Well?" he said. 'Are you looking?'My eyes were still closed. I was in my house. I knew that. But I didn't feel like I was inside anything.'It's really something,' I said."
Author: Raymond Carver
37. "It takes a village to build success in publishing a book - it takes friends that are willing to help - it takes hours upon hours of no's to get to a yes, it takes many twists and turns with seemingly no end to the detours, it takes courage to face the unknowns - it takes and it takes and it takes - But then, like a flower opening its blossom - it gives........."
Author: Rich Okun

Author: Richard Eyre
39. "You want it, boy?" He pulled his prick out of his jeans."God, yes. That's why I'm here." "Good." He left his jeans open, left his prick hard and pushing out. "Come on. Shower.""Turn around." He wanted to see it. Griff went a deep red, but the man turned to show the weird, stylized whip branded into one ass cheek. Groaning, Brian reached out and touched it, traced it with his fingers. He'd done that. He'd marked his boy. "You still clean?" Brian kept rubbing his prick back and forth across Griff's hole. "I am. I couldn't... I couldn't get it up with anyone else.""Good." He grabbed the shampoo and poured it over his fingers. "Was not. You fucked me up""We fucked each other up." He was not in this alone. He couldn't wait to be inside Griff again. His wild, desperate baby boy. His fingers traced the brand on Griff's ass. His. All fucking his. Marked permanently. And Griff had let him do it. The man knew it was true."
Author: Sean Michael
40. "He lay back, put his arm over his eyes, and tried to hold onto the anger, because the anger made him feel brave. A brave man could think. A coward couldn't."
Author: Stephen King
41. "The accent was warm and soft and undeniably Northern. When I turned around, I was staring into a pair of beautiful crystal-blue eyes. "Wow," I whispered. I scanned the paint swatches, wondering if such a shade of blue would look good on the exterior of my house. "Mr. Johnson said you might need help selecting paint." "It's impossible," I muttered. "I just wanted to buy some blue paint. Why is this so complicated?" The handsome man stepped closer to my side. "It isn't, really. Just pick what you like." I like crystal-blue. Luckily, I didn't say those words aloud."
Author: Sydney Logan
42. "Indeed Not. Stop kicking me, Daine. You understand, she is very important to a number of powerful nobles and mages in Tortall." Numair's voice was quiet, almost friendly; his eyes were hard. "Their majesties. Lady Alanna and her husband, the baron of Pirate's Swoop. Me. All of us would take iit amiss if we thought for a moment she was being trifled with, particularly by a young man who wasn't free to do the right thing by her.""Numair," Daine growled. "Can I speak to you privately for a moment?"No. Stepping on my foot won't work either. Do I make myself clear, Prince Kaddar?"
Author: Tamora Pierce
43. "Ah, dear Reader, is there a married man living who hasn't purged his drawers and closets of premarital memorabilia, only to have one more incriminating relic from yester-life rear its lovely head? Kristy contends that old flames never die, not completely. They smolder for years in hidden places. They flare up again just when you think you're over them. They can burn you if you don't deal with them. Such is the price I've had to pay for not rooting out the evidence of my life B.C. (Before Contentment). Or, perhaps, for having planted it too well. But that, you see, is no longer an issue. Shall I tell you the crux of this argument? A man with a past can be forgiven. A man without one cannot be trusted. If there were no pictures in my drawer for Kirsty to uncover, I would have had to produce some."
Author: Ted Gargiulo
44. "Susan stared at him.The blue glow in Death's eyes gradually faded, and as the light died it sucked at her gaze so that it was dragged into the eye sockets and into the darkness beyond……which went on and on, for ever. There was no word for it. Even eternity was a human idea. Giving it a name gave it a length; admittedly, a very long one. But this darkness was what was left when eternity had given up. It was where Death lived. Alone."
Author: Terry Pratchett
45. "I looked back at Eric. I hated that his eyes were closed. Like Josephine wasn't really paying attention to me. But she had so many other eyes. Rat eyes. Fox eyes. Crow eyes. "Josephine. Tell me why you want the spell book. Why does any of that matter if all we ever need is blood?""You want to talk philosophy, Silla? Right now?" Eric's eyes snapped open and his fingers twitched."
Author: Tessa Gratton
46. "Women are formed for love, yes, but also for purpose, and the highest state for a woman—for all humans, in fact—comes when one discovers and then achieves one's ultimate purpose."
Author: Therese Anne Fowler
47. "But if objects for gratitude and admiration are our desire, do they notpresent themselves every hour to our eyes? Do we not see a fair creationprepared to receive us the instant we are born —a world furnished toour hands, that cost us nothing? Is it we that light up the sun; that pourdown the rain; and fill the earth with abundance? Whether we sleep orwake, the vast machinery of the universe still goes on. Are these things,and the blessings they indicate in future, nothing to, us? Can our grossfeelings be excited by no other subjects than tragedy and suicide? Or isthe gloomy pride of man become so intolerable, that nothing can flatter itbut a sacrifice of the Creator?"
Author: Thomas Paine
48. "Therefore, she hummed the provincial lullaby she had learned from the officers' children in the English Quarter of Jerusalem, and watched in fascination while the savage radical's eyes misted over with tears. For an instant, the prison bars melted away, and she felt God's presence—for the first time since their imprisonment. She was not a captive, and this man was not her captor. Indeed, they were both merely God's children."
Author: V.S. Carnes
49. "People's ability to forget what they do not want to know, to overlook what is before their eyes, was seldom put to the test better than in Germany at that time."
