You two must have had hogsheads of that grocer's claret forced down your throats. Perfectly odious: and she is obstinate - strong, if you like - under that bread-and-butter way of hers. It will take a great deal to move her; much more than the excitement of a ball."

Jen actually felt a smile spread across her face, "So you want to make babies with me?"This time when Decebel laughed she swore she could feel his hands run down her sides to her waist."Only you would want to discuss making babies at a time like this.""Well you have to admit that it's a better topic than my nearly being killed and now being kidnapped. Seriously Dec, I'd much rather think about us making babies."
Author: Quinn Loftis

22. "However, this sceptic had one fanaticism. This fanaticism was neither a dogma, nor an idea, nor an art, nor a science; it was a man: Enjolras. Grantaire admired, loved, and venerated Enjolras. To whom did this anarchical scoffer unite himself in this phalanx of absolute minds? To the most absolute. In what manner had Enjolras subjugated him? By his ideas? No. By his character. A phenomenon which is often observable. A sceptic who adheres to a believer is as simple as the law of complementary colors. That which we lack attracts us. No one loves the light like the blind man. The dwarf adores the drum-major. The toad always has his eyes fixed on heaven. Why? In order to watch the bird in its flight. Grantaire, in whom writhed doubt, loved to watch faith soar in Enjolras. He had need of Enjolras. That chaste, healthy, firm, upright, hard, candid nature charmed him, without his being clearly aware of it, and without the idea of explaining it to himself having occurred to him."
Author: Victor Hugo
23. "Actually I am pretty pregnant with the news Sid brought me, but glad we have not spread it. The girls look very happy. With their heads bound up in babushkas they might be out of the peasant chorus of a Russian opera. Any minute now we will sing and dance to the balalaika. Charity is tall and striking; Sally smaller, darker, quieter. One dazzles, the other warms. In a couple of hours I will need sympathy, but for now I like being washed by the wind."
Author: Wallace Stegner
24. "The idea of voluntary segregation went against every value I had been taught. What did being born black have to do with excellence?"
Author: Walter Dean Myers
25. "I would have changed my last name if being famous were my goal."
Author: Zach Galifianakis

Today's Quote

Nella vita di tutti i giorni nessuno ti chiede di raccontare la storia che ti morde il cuore e te lo mastica, e se qualcuno te lo chiede, nella vita di tutti i giorni nessuno riesce a raccontare quella storia, perché non trovi mai le parole adatte, le sfumature giuste, il coraggio di essere nudo, fragile, autentico. Quella storia deve piombare da fuori, come quando accade che i libri ci scelgano e gli autori diventino amici a cui vorremmo telefonare alla fine della lettura per chiedere come fanno loro a conoscerci o dove hanno sentito la nostra storia. Quella storia è uno specchio che ti sorprende a esclamare: questa è la mia, questo sono io, ma non avevo le parole per dirlo. E forse scopri di non essere solo, definitivamente solo."
Author: Alessandro D'Avenia
