3. "Pain is strange. A cat killing a bird, a car accident, a fire.... Pain arrives, BANG, and there it is, it sits on you. It's real. And to anybody watching, you look foolish. Like you've suddenly become an idiot. There's no cure for it unless you know somebody who understands how you feel, and knows how to help."
Author: Charles Bukowski
4. "I am a child of the Milky Way. The night is my mother. I am made of the dust of stars. Every atom in my body was forged in a star. When the universe exploded into being, already the bird longed for the wood and the fish for the pool. When the first galaxies fell into luminous clumps, already matter was struggling toward consciousness. The star clouds of Sagittarius are a burning bush. If there is a voice in Sagittarius, I'd be a fool not to listen. If God's voice in the night is a scrawny cry, then I'll prick up my ears. If night's faint lights fail to knock me off my feet, then I'll sit back on a dark hillside and wait and watch. A hint here and a trait there. Listening and watching. Waiting, always waiting, for the tingle in the spine."
Author: Chet Raymo
5. "I think the birds in the area are dying laughing watching me try not to crash."
Author: Cynthia Hand
6. "His face almost looked the way it did when he was a teenager, when there was the subtle expression of both confidence and mischief in his darkly handsome eyes. When I think of him now, though, I don't picture his face the way it is. What I see is from a memory, from a moment when he must have been eleven or twelve years old and we were both in our backyard and it was summertime and I was drawing in a coloring book and he was there in the green grass and he didn't know I was watching him. He was crawling around on all fours; he was practicing being a lion or a tiger or more probably a leopard and he was growling to himself, stalking the shadow of a bird, and he didn't see me staring at him and I think my mother was there, looking at us from an upstairs window, watching us both and gently smiling, and what I remember most is that all of us were happy then with who we were at that moment; at that moment, all of us were quietly happy."
Author: Joe Meno
7. "Artists talk a lot about freedom. So, recalling the expression "free as a bird," Morton Feldman went to a park one day and spent some time watching our feathered friends. When he came back, he said, "You know? They're not free: they're fighting over bits of food."
Author: John Cage
8. "I never for a day gave up listening to the songs of our birds, or watching their peculiar habits, or delineating them in the best way I could."
Author: John James Audubon
9. "But in the early 1970s, we were not birdwatching. We were birding, and that made all the difference. We were out to seek, to discover, to chase, to learn, to find as many different kinds of birds as possible — and, in friendly competition, to try to find more of them than the next birder. We became a community of birders, with the complications that human societies always have; and although it was the birds that had brought us together, our story became a human story after all."
Author: Kenn Kaufman
10. "Stick your dick in'?" I asked, my brows probably touching. "Did you actually just say that?" "Make love. I meant make love … of course. I would never just stick my dick in you. I would make mad, passionate love to this sweet, sweet body of yours for days, no, weeks. It would be beautiful, pumpkin. There'd be little angels, and birdies, and you know … all just hanging around, watching. Perverts."
Author: Kylie Scott
11. "Ah yes, that's the man I am! I'm a huntsman – there's no hunter to equal me in the regiment. I'll find you any sort of animal, any sort of bird; and what and where – I knows it all. I have dogs and two guns and nets and a screen and a hawk. I have everything, thank the Lord. If you really are a huntsman, and not just bragging, I'll show you everything. D'you know what sort of man I am? Once I've found a track I knows the animal – knows where he'll sleep and where he'll come to drink or roll about. Then I makes meself a perch and sits there all night, watching. What's the good of staying at home, anyway? You only falls into mischief and gets drunk. And the women come cackling round, and the children yell at you, and you're choked with charcoal smoke."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
12. "Ever have one of "those" days?? Me too. Everything seems to go any way but your way -- again, me too. As I was unwinding a cord today, it reminded me of how our lives can be --- tangled and messy. And when we get in too big of a hurry, it just becomes more tangled. What a mess it can become! When was the last time you sat down with God, reading His Word, going over His plan for your life?? When was the last time you took time to enjoy God's creation -- sitting outside listening to the birds, watching the butterflies, smelling the flowers, etc?? When was the last time you just spent time with your family or other loved ones -- not because it was a family function, but just because you wanted to?? Sometimes the best way to untangle and clean up the messiness, is to just SLOW DOWN ... take a BREAK and remember to ENJOY the little things in LIFE."
Author: Lori Homeyer
13. "I give it a fifty-fifty chance of total failure. If Kai refuses to repay a debt he legitimately owes, he'll be dishonoured in front of his entire Flight. Thunderbirds always avenge their dead, honour their word, and pay their debts. Those seem to be the only laws they have." Based on what little time I'd spent with them. Marc frowned. "It's the 'legitimately owes' part that worries me." "Thus the fifty-fifty shot of failure." I stared up at the nest, watching for any sign of activity. "It all depends on whether or not I'm able to bullshit him into thinking he owes us." "The odds are always in your favour when bullshit's involved." Jace grinned, and I couldn't help returning his smile."
Author: Rachel Vincent
14. "As I stood, I took in a last breath of spring-scented air, listened to the birdsong, and then saw a member of wildlife the conservationists hadn't planned on reviving in this place. A perv in a white shirt and polyester pants. A standard hide-in-the-bushes-and-whack-it perv. Fat and balding, it was as appealing as watching a giant marshmallow go at it."
Author: Rob Thurman
15. "We do a lot of bird-watching up in the country, but we almost never have a chance to people-watch. There simply aren't enough human beings up here: there is nowhere you can park yourself with a cup of coffee and observe the species on parade."
Author: Susan Orlean
16. "Rising to her feet, she shot the Bird Man a furious glare, and then stormed off toward Savidlin's house. She was glad to be away from Richard, to be away from watching those girls pawing him.Her fingernails dug into her palms, but she didn't notice as she marched past the happy people. The dancers danced, the drummers drummed, the children laughed. People she passed wished her well. She wanted one of them to say something mean so she would have an excuse to hit someone."
Author: Terry Goodkind

I'm twenty years old,' said Laurent, 'and I've been the recipient of offers almost as long as I can remember.''Is that an answer?' said Damen.'I'm not a virgin,' said Laurent.'I wondered,' Damen said, carefully, 'if you reserved your love for women.''No, I--' Laurent sounded surprised. Then he seemed to realise that his surprise gave something fundamental away, and he looked away with a muttered breath; when he looked back at Damen there was a wry smile on his lips, but he said, steadily, 'No.''Have I said something to offend you? I didn't mean--''No. A plausible, benign and uncomplicated theory. Trust you to come up with it.''It's not my fault that no one in your country can think in a straight line,' said Damen, frowning a touch defensively."
