A dieci anni potevo vedere i gradini squadrati, da poterli risalire cogli occhi. Oggi mi contento di averli visti e di credere che ci sono ancora. Settembre è il mese delle nozze tra la superficie terrestre e lo spazio di sopra acceso dalla luce. Sulle terrazze gradinate a viti i pescatori fanno i contadini e raccolgono i grappoli nei cesti fatti dalle donne. Prima ancora di spremerli, il giorno di vendemmia ubriaca gli scalzi tra i filari al sole e lo sciame delle vespe assetate."
Author: Erri De Luca
12. "I still remember our first meeting, when Albers brought him to my house. On the little carriage which carried him from the station, and which was hardly built with such loads in mind, sat a massive figure who appeared even more enormous by virtue of the thick overcoat he wore. Everything about him had the effect of extraordinary permanence and solidity: the deep bass voice; the tweed jacket, already, at that time, almost habitual; the appetite at dinner; and at night, the truly Cyclopean snoring, loud as a series of buzz saws, which frightened the other guests at my Chiemgau country house out of their peaceful slumbers."

20. "Bien sûr ces changements de comportement culturel et l'invention de mumltiples diversions font partie d'un système économique qui me dépase. J'envisage ce système comme un bain dans une piscine anémiée, stérile, bondée, puant le chlore, en comparaison d'une délicieuse baignade dans un lac au fond des bois, la berge du lac bordée de nénuphars en fleurs où sont perchées de petites tortues, un ou deux hérons dans les grands pins ou dans l'eau peu profonde, quelques serpents d'eau parmi les massifs d'ajoncs, et quand vous plongez vous voyez les poissons qui se reposent immobiles sous les bûches dressées. Même les profondeurs obscures semblent séduisantes en comparaison d'une piscine, comme une promenade printanière sous la pluie dans les bois en comparaison d'une série télévisée où des gens se font descendre ou tabasser à New York ou à Los Angeles tandis que des durs à cuire enchaînent d'insipides répliques soi-disant spirituelles."
Author: Jim Harrison

"Frederick!" she yelped, tripping on a step or two before she found her footing.Frederick stopped, althought it wasn't clear if it was due to Louisa's hold on the lead or outright exhaustion. He let out a hugh sigh, and frankly, Annabel was suprised that he didn't collapse on the ground."I think someone has been sneaking him sausages again," Louisa grumbled.Annabel looked elsewhere."Annabel!""He looked so HUNGERY," Annabel insisted.Louisa motioned toward her dog, whos belly slid along the grass. "THAT looks hungery?""His eyes looked hungery."

32. "Haley and I would talk for hours about which member of 'N Sync we'd want to marry. After long deliberation, the answer was always J. C. Chasez. JoeyFatone's last name was going to be "Fat One" no matter how great he was, and even though they didn't know at theirage that Lance Bass was gay outright, they sensed he'd make a better good friend and confidante.

"Do you understand that this boy is my son?""Yes, I do," said Cyril. "And you both have my sympathy!""You're fired!" bellowed old Blumenfeld, swelling a good bit more. "Get out of my theatre!"
Author: P.G. Wodehouse
36. "Ci sono cose che si perdono e non tornano indietro; non si possono riavere mai più, se non nella carta carbone della memoria. Ci sono cose a cui sembra impossibile rassegnarsi ma a cui rassegnarsi è inevitabile. Lo scorrere dei giorni leviga il dolore ma non lo consuma: quello che il tempo si porta via è andato, e poi si resta con un qualcosa di freddo e duro, un souvenir che non si perde mai. Un piccolo bassotto di porcellana delle White Mountains. Una marionetta del teatro delle ombre di Bali. E guarda: un calzascarpe d'avorio di un hotel a quattro stelle di Zurigo. E qua, come un sasso che porto ovunque, c'è un pezzetto di cuore altrui che ho conservato da un vecchio viaggio."

At the center of it all was the thing that corrupted its surroundings with its own gruesome color - a wound."
Author: Robert Liparulo

Good luck!"I watched him walk away, wondering if I'd really just become the replacement bassist for the D-Bags »"
Author: S.C. Stephens
42. "I love the percussion. It's a right brain, left brain thing. There are different beats, but cooperating together. It's your whole body doing it, you're doing the snare drum and the high top with your hands and the bass drum with your foot. You're this whole motion machine."
