1. "It's getting closer," Tristan said.Ayden nodded."So let's track it.""No," Ayden snapped. "She's our priority.""I know, but it's following her, so," Tristan held one hand up, "find the demon," he held up the other, "find Aurora. It could work."The itching intensified. Invisible claws grazed up the back of my neck, wrenching every nerve to painful attention. Another hungry screech sent spikes piercing my brain. Lights shattered my vision. I couldn't breathe. I burst out of the suffocating space just as the engine roared to life and gunned the car forward.With a violent curse, Ayden slammed on the brakes but not before the Maserati rammed my hip. I hurtled into the air and rolled a fast spin onto the hood."Or you could just hit her with the car," Tristan said."Real smooth."

2. "I'd spend hours in HMVs, Virgin Megastores and second-hand record shops staffed by greasy-haired 40-year-olds dressed as 20-year-olds, listening to contemporary music of every genre – Britrock, heavy maiden, gang rap, brakebeat. And I came to a startling but unshakeable conclusion: no genuinely good music has been created since 1988."

Chubs slammed on the brakes, forcing my seat belt to do its job and lock against my chest. I was thrown back into my seat, an explosion of colors bursting in my vision. "Oh, hell no!" Chubs roared, slamming a hand against the steering wheel. "That's it! We don not use our abilities on one another, goddammit! Behave yourself!"
Author: Alexandra Bracken
4. "This is strange, Henry. Before, as soon as I came home from all sorts of places I would sit down and write in my journal. Now I want to write you, talk with you. [...]I love when you say all that happens is good, it is good. I say all that happens is wonderful. For me it is all symphonic, and I am so aroused by living - god, Herny, in you alone I have found the same swelling of enthusiasm, the same quick rising of the blood, the fullness. [...]Before, I almost used to think there was something wrong. Everybody else seemed to have the brakes on. [...] I never feel the brakes. I overflow. And when I feel your excitement about life flaring, next to mine, then it makes me dizzy."
Author: Anaïs Nin

Once in the road, free from the fields and brakes, he changed his run into a walk, and he never paused or stopped, till he came with a gulp of relief into the ugly streets of the big industrial town. He made hi way to the station at once, and found that he was an hour too soon for the London express. So, there was plenty of time for breakfast; which consisted of brandy."
Author: Arthur Machen

Author: Bill Bryson
9. "Virginia screamed, grabbing for the door handle and nearly throwing herself from the moving car. James swerved to the side of the road, slamming on the brakes before she killed herself trying to escape. As it was, she flung herself from the car, falling to her knees and scrambling to her feet. Then she ran. Took off like a bolt until she rounded the bend and disappeared from view. 'Way to go, slick,' AJ said snarkily, climbing into the front seat. 'You ran her off."
Author: Brandi Salazar
10. "I lean back, try to forget these fields and flanking hills. A long time before me or these tools, the Teays flowed here. I can almost feel the cold waters and the tickling the trilobites make when they crawl. All the water from the old mountains flowed west. But the land lifted. I have only the bottoms and stone animals I collect. I blink and breathe. My father is a khaki cloud in the canebrakes, and Ginny is no more to me than the bitter smell in the blackberry briers up on the ridge. --from Trilobites"
Author: Breece D'J Pancake

"Not in my cab!""Don't worry, mate," I told him. I turned to her and murmured, "She doesn't let me fuck her in cars. Or on Tuesdays.""She doesn't," she whispered, though she did let me kiss her again."Shame," I said into her mouth. "I'm good in cars. And especially good on Tuesdays."

29. "Rose leaned against the bathroom door. Here it was — her real life, the truth of who she was, barreling down on her like a bus with bad brakes. Here was the truth — she wasn't the kind of person Jim could fall in love with. She wasn't what she'd made herself out to be — a cheerful, uncomplicated girl, a normal girl with a happy, orderly life, a girl who wore pretty shoes and had nothing more pressing on her mind that whether ER was a rerun this week. The truth was in the exercise tape she didn't have time to unwrap, let alone exercise to; the truth was her hairy legs and ugly underwear. Most of all, the truth was her sister, her gorgeous, messed-up, fantastically unhappy and astoundingly irresponsible sister."
Author: Jennifer Weiner

35. "Art then becomes a safety valve for the expression of individual and collective neuroses originating in the inability of coping with the environment. Its products serve as a retarded correction of perception braked by the system of conventions and stereotypes that stabilize society. They create a slightly updated system which, eventually assimilated by history, will require a new system and so on without end. Art objects serve as points of identification alienated from the consumer, requiring more sympathy than empathy."
Author: Luis Camnitzer
36. "I think I see her chest rise as she catches her breath. Maybe she'll be the one to throw on the brakes. God knows I'm not going to. I might regret it later, but right now I'm not thinking about anything but what it would be like to see Olivia without that red dress."

37. "Wezmy twój rozum. Na pozór wydaje sie, ze myslisz w sposób uporzadkowany, logiczny i sensowny. Ale wszyscy wiemy, ze w twojej glowie kwitnie istna dzungla nonsensów. Twój umysl to poskrecany, chaotyczny zlepek przypadkowych informacji, które nie kleja sie ze soba z powodu elementarnego braku wiedzy, nie stosowania zasad logiki, niewiarygodnego zaniku zdolnosci wnioskowania oraz niczym nieuzasadnionego poczucia wlasnej wyzszosci. Chaos w plonacym wloskim burdelu podczas bombardowania w czasie II wojny swiatowej daje mniej wiecej obraz tego, co dzieje sie zazwyczaj w..."

Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
42. "The sense of beauty puts a brake upon destruction, by representing its object as irreplaceable. When the world looks back at me with my eyes, as it does in aesthetic experience, it is also addressing me in another way. Something is being revealed to me, and I am being made to stand still and absorb it. It is of course nonsense to suggest that there are naiads in the trees and dryads in the groves. What is revealed to me in the experience of beauty is a fundamental truth about being - the truth that being is a gift, and receiving it is a task. This is a truth of theology that demands exposition as such."
Author: Roger Scruton
43. "Ludzie, którzy pisza historie, zbyt duzo uwagi poswiecaja tzw. glosnym momentom, a za malo badaja okresy ciszy. Jest to brak intuicji tak niezawodnej u kazdej matki, kiedy uslyszy, ze w pokoju jej dziecka raptem zrobilo sie cicho. Matka wie, ze ta cisza oznacza cos niedobrego. Ze jest to cisza, za która cos sie kryje. Biegnie interweniowac, poniewaz czuje, ze zlo wisi w powietrzu. Te sama funkcje spelnia cisza w historii i w polityce. Cisza jest sygnalem nieszczescia i czesto – przestepstwa. Jest takim samym narzedziem politycznym jak szczek oreza czy przemówienie na wiecu. Cisza jest potrzebna tyranom i okupantom, którzy dbaja, aby ich dzielu towarzyszylo milczenie."
Author: Ryszard Kapuściński
44. "In Malaysia where the front end pushes so much, extra engine braking is really going to help you."

Author: Stanley Victor Paskavich
47. "It will be as if I'd never existed. The words ran through my head, lacking the perfect clarity of my hallucination last night. They were just words, soundless, like print on a page. Just words, but they ripped the hole wide open, and I stomped on the brake, knowing I should not drive while this incapacitated.I curled over, pressing my face against the steering wheel and trying to breathe without lungs."
Author: Stephenie Meyer

Author: Will Ferguson
50. "Well, heaven forgive him! and forgive us all! Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall: Some run from brakes of ice, and answer none: And some condemned for a fault alone."
Author: William Shakespeare

Eppure sono convinto che Artù sarebbe rimasto in Dumnonia, se avesse ricevuto ciò che desiderava, ossia la gratitudine. Era un uomo orgoglioso e sapeva bene ciò che aveva fatto per il nostro regno, ma era stato ricompensato con astio e malcontento.Erano stati i cristiani a rompere per primi la pace, ma poi, dopo i fuochi di Mai Dun, gli stessi pagani si erano rivoltati contro di lui.Artù aveva dato alla Dumnonia la giustizia, aveva riconquistato gran parte delle Terre Perdute, aveva reso sicure le nuove frontiere e governato con onestà; ma per ricompensa era stato deriso come il Nemico di Dio."
