"What have you got on your feet?" he growled."Shoes."He looked down, his eyes accustomed to the inky black. Light-weight sneakers, already soaking wet from the damp undergrowth. "Christ, woman," he muttered."I didn't exactly get a chance to choose my wardrobe when they kidnapped me," she said.Damned if he didn't like her."
Author: Anne Stuart

3. "Ez az üres és kihalt lakás nem ismerte el ot, ezek a bútorok meg falak néma kritikával fürkészték.Csendjükbe hatolva úgy érezte magát, mint hivatlan vendég a víz alatti, elsüllyedt birodalomban, ahol más, külön idoszámítás van.Saját fiókjait nyitogatva betöronek érezte magát, és önkéntelenül lábujjhegyen járt, attól tartva, hogy felveri a zajos és szertelen visszhangot, mely ingerülten leste az alkalmat, hogy kitörhessen.És midon végre-valahára, nesztelenül surranva szekrénytol szekrényig, darabonként mindent megtalált, és befejezte öltözködését a bútorok közt, amelyek némán, idegenül turték meg ot, midon végre elkészült, és ott állt indulásra készen, kezében a kalappal, zavar fogta el, hogy az utolsó pillanatban sem talál rá a szóra, mely feloldotta volna ezt az ellenséges hallgatást, és lemondóan, lassan, lehorgasztott fejjel elindult az ajtóhoz — miközben az ellenkezo irányba — a tükör mélyébe — a nemlétezo szobák kihalt során — örökre hátat fordítva ráérosen távolodott valaki."
Author: Bruno Schulz

Author: Christopher Paolini
7. "Ree Dolly stood at the break of day on her cold front steps and smelled coming flurries and saw meat. Meat hung from trees across the creek. Carcasses hung pale of flesh with fatty gleam from low limbs of saplings in the side yards. Three halt haggard houses formed a kneeling rank on the far creekside and each had two or more skinned torsos dangling by rope from sagged limbs, venison left to the weather for two nights and three days so the early blossoming of decay might round the flavor, sweeten that meat to the bone."
Author: Daniel Woodrell
8. "The idea of living there, of not having to go back ever again to asphalt and shopping malls and modular furniture; of living there with Charles and Camilla and Henry and Francis and maybe even Bunny; of no one marrying or going home or getting a job in a town a thousand miles away or doing any of the traitorous things friends do after college; of everything remaining exactly as it was, that instant - the idea was so truly heavenly that I'm not sure I thought, even then, it could ever really happen, but I like to believe I did."
Author: Donna Tartt
9. "A song must move the story ahead. A song must take the place of dialogue. If a song halts the show, pushes it back, stalls it, the audience won't buy it; they'll be unhappy."

10. "Yeah, it stings. But at least I feel something. Something besides hungry. Something besides afraid. Weird. I always thought cutters were sick. Sicker than me, even. But with a single swipe I understand why they do it. Why they like it, even though they hate it. I let the water run over the cut, ratchet it hotter, watch the blood slow, stutter, almost halt. I like the way the exposed flesh looks, all pinkish white. It looks new, although I know that isn't right. It's the same age as my skin, as my bones. Me. It's been there with me since the beginning. Been with me through thick. Thin. Daddy. Suddenly, I don't like how it looks at all."
Author: Ellen Hopkins
11. "Amory wondered how people could fail to notice that he was a boy marked for glory, and when faces of the throng turned toward him and ambiguous eyes stared into his, he assumed the most romantic of expressions and walked on the air cushions that lie on the asphalts of fourteen..."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
12. "Die Hochzeit zweier aufrichtiger Seelenwerde ich nicht hindern.Die Liebe ist Liebe nicht, wenn sie vorHindernissen schreckt.O nein, ein ewiger Fixpunkt für immer,der sich von Stürmen nicht erschüttern lässt.Sie ist der Stern, an den die Schiffe sich halten."
Author: Fabio Volo
13. "One can truly say that the irresistible progress of natural science since the time of Galileo has made its first halt before the study of the higher parts of the brain, the organ of the most complicated relations of the animal to the external world. And it seems, and not without reason, that now is the really critical moment for natural science; for the brain, in its highest complexity—the human brain—which created and creates natural science, itself becomes the object of this science."
Author: Galileo

Author: Gerhard Richter
15. "If the world were full of the self-seeking individuals found in economics textbooks, it would grind to a halt because we would be spending most of our time cheating, trying to catch the cheaters, and punishing the caught. The world works as it does only because people are not the totally self seeking agents that free-market economics believes them to be. We need to design an economic system that, while acknowledging that people are often selfish, exploits other human motives to the full and gets the best out of people. The likelihood is that, if we assume the worst about people, we will get the worst out of them."
Author: Ha Joon Chang
16. "There is mud everywhere, slicking the asphalt and piling up in corners along with the detritus of daily life: pop cans, cigarette butts, used condoms and bullet shells."
Author: Isaac Marion
17. "The way is shut.Then they halted and looked at him and saw that he lived still; but he did not look at them. The way is shut, his voice said again. It was made by those who are Dead, and the Dead keep it, until the time comes. The way is shut."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
18. "I swam across the rocks and compared myself favorably with the sars. To swim fishlike, horizontally, was the logical method in a medium eight hundred times denser than air. To halt and hang attached to nothing, no lines or air pipe to the surface, was a dream. At night I had often had visions of flying by extending my arms as wings. Now I flew without wings. (Since that first aqualung flight, I have never had a dream of flying.)"
Author: Jacques Yves Cousteau

Author: James Elroy Flecker
20. "CREEPOther people have written about war. About how one plane sweeps over and the whole place is ablaze in minutes. About how a young man may kill another young many with perfect legality. I prefer to write about less sudden things. About how we inch further away without even noticing. And then it's too late. Or is it? No it's not too late to say sorry, we were wrong, let's try again to get along. No, it's not too late to quit lying, halt the greed, stop polluting air earth and seas. I prefer to write about less noisy things. About change happening so gradually that one day you just accept the world as different. And you don't question because you're old, and you don't feel like making waves, and anyway, they'd say you were insane......."
Author: Jay Woodman

22. "Gundar seemed to come to a decision. "Well, as my old mam used to say, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's probably a duck." "Very wise," Halt said. "And what exactly do your mother's words of wisdom have to do with this situation?" Gundar shrugged. "It looks like a channel. It's the right place for a channel. If I were digging one, this is where I'd dig a channel. So. . ." "So it's probably the channel?" Selethen said. Gundar grinned at him. "Either that or it's a duck."
Author: John Flanagan

Author: John Flanagan
25. "You really miss him don't you?"The Ranger nodded. "More than I realized," he said. Alyss urged her horse close beside his and learned over to kiss him on the cheek.That's for Will when you see him." A ghost of a smile touched Halt's face.You'll understand if I don't pass it on in person?" he said. Alyss smiled and leaned over and kissed him again.And that's for you, you jaded, bad-tempered old Ranger."A little surprised by her own impulsivness, she urged her horse ahead of him. Halt touched his cheek and looked at the slim blonde figure.If I were twenty years younger...he began.The he sighed and had to be honest with himself. Make that thirty years, he thought."
Author: John Flanagan

Author: John Steinbeck
27. "Joni discovered the best way to put the halter on her horse without being animal resisting and fleeing was to turn her back until he nuzzled up to her. At that point, she could slip the halter on. Just so, she surmises, sometimes God waits for us to turn our backs on what we desire most and to trust Him."
Author: Joni Eareckson Tada
28. "My breath is halted, like grasping for air after crying far too long and hard. It is like a hiccup, with a shivering sharpness of nerves. It is like icicles running down your spine or aluminum in your mouth, an eerie amount of emotions that cannot compare to the actual feelings you've managed to live through. I just watched you die, I say to myself silently."
Author: Joseph McGinnis
29. "Evil' is after all a relative term: there being a minor and pragmatical sort, to be disposed of as one swats a fly, and a vast, all-encompassing, one might say universal sort, that must be halted by any means at hand."
Author: Joyce Carol Oates
30. "Julia would do anything to make the time pass. She killed time, murdered it, massacred it and hid the bodies. She threw her days in bunches onto the bonfire with both hands and watched them go up in fragrant smoke. It wasn't easy. Sometimes it felt like the hours had ground to a halt. They fought her as they passed, one after the other, like stubborn stools."
Author: Lev Grossman

Author: Marquis De Sade
33. "(...)– aber vor allem: standhalten, dem Licht, der Freude (wie unser Kind als es sang) im Wissen, dass ich erlösche im Licht über Ginster, Asphalt und Meer, standhalten der Zeit, beziehungsweise Ewigkeit im Augenblick. Ewig sein: gewesen sein."
Author: Max Frisch
34. "She listens, determined to locate the trapped bird that had called out from within the madness of suffering. But there is only silence now, not even a halting fragment. Ali! Ali! A dervish, having renounced dealings with all words except that one, never utters another, in any circumstance...The sentence enters her mind from a book she had been looking at earlier. Her gaze is drifting across the sky where the moon sits in a great cold ring as she recalls more and more words. Only one thing matters, only one word. If we speak, it is because we have not found that thing, nor shall find it."
Author: Nadeem Aslam
35. "Is Dust immortal then, I ask'd him, so that we may see it blowing through the Centuries? But as Walter gave no Answer I jested with him further to break his Melancholy humour: What is Dust, Master Pyne?And he reflected a little: It is particles of Matter, no doubt.Then we are all Dust indeed, are we not?And in a feigned Voice he murmered, For Dust thou art and shalt to Dust return. Then he made a Sour face, but only yo laugh the more."
Author: Peter Ackroyd

Author: Rob Thomas
37. "Heart, fear nothing, for, heart, thou shalt find her- Next time, herself!-not the trouble behind her"
Author: Robert Browning
38. "Berge sollte man mit möglichst wenig Anstrengung und ohne Ehrgeiz ersteigen. Unsere eigene Natur sollte das Tempo bestimmen. Wenn man unruhig wird, geht man schneller. Wenn man zu keuchen anfängt, geht man langsamer. Man steigt auf den Berg in einem Zustand, in dem sich Rastlosigkeit und Erschöpfung die Waage halten. Dann, wenn man nicht mehr in Gedanken vorauseilt, ist jeder Schritt nicht mehr bloß ein Mittel zum Zweck, sondern ein einmaliges Ereignis. Dieses Blatt ist gezähnt. Dieser Felsen scheint locker. Von dieser Stelle aus ist der Schnee nicht mehr so gut zu sehen, obwohl man ihm schon näher ist. Das sind Dinge, die man ohnehin wahrnehmen sollte. Nur auf irgendein zukünftiges Ziel hin zu leben ist seicht. Die Flanken des Berges sind es, auf denen Leben gedeiht, nicht der Gipfel. Hier wächst etwas."
Author: Robert M. Pirsig

Author: Rumi
40. "I-" said Nick, his voice halting. "I don't mind it as much when - when people touch me. Some people."Mae looked down, and Nick, who looked more relaxed when he'd been stabbed, slowly lifted his hand from his chest and laid it on the tumbled sheets between them, fingers half-curled into his palm. He was still regarding the ceiling with a fixed glare."Because you trust them not to hurt you?" Mae asked tentatively."No," Nick said, his voice harsh. "Because I'd let them hurt me."
Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
41. "Hogy ezek után mindannyian boldogan éltek-e, amíg meg nem haltak? Nem. Ez sosem szokott így történni, bármit állítanak is a mesék. Voltak jó napjaik, csakúgy, mint nektek, és voltak rossz napjaik is, amelyek szintén nem ismeretlenek a számotokra. Néha gyoztek, csakúgy, mint ti, néha viszont veszítettek, ami szintén nem ismeretlen dolog elottetek sem. Volt, amikor szégyellték magukat, mert tudták, hogy nem tettek meg minden tolük telhetot, és volt, amikor tudták, hogy azt tették, amit az isteneik elvártak tolük. Mindezzel csupán azt szeretném mondani, hogy éltek, ahogyan tudtak; néhányan tovább, mint mások, de mindannyian helyesen és bátran, és mindannyiukat szeretem, amit nem is szégyellek."
Author: Stephen King
42. "Das Ende meiner ersten Liebe lässt sich mit dem Tod eines alten Freundes und der Trauer einer alten Freundin nicht vergleichen, aber es folgte dem gleichen Muster. Ganz genau sogar. Und wenn es mir so vorkam wie das Ende der Welt, angefangen mit den Selbstmordgedanken - so albern und halbherzig sie auch gewesen sein mochten - und dann einer grundlegenden Veränderung meines Weltbildes, so muss man sich vor Augen halten, dass ich keinen Maßstab hatte, an dem ich meine Gefühle hätte messen können. Das nennt man 'jung sein"
Author: Stephen King

Author: Terry Pratchett
46. "1. To account nothing of one's self, and to think always kindly and highly of others, this is great and perfect wisdom. Even shouldest thou see thy neighbour sin openly or grievously, yet thou oughtest not to reckon thyself better than he, for thou knowest not how long thou shalt keep thine integrity. All of us are weak and frail; hold thou no man more frail than thyself."
Author: Thomas à Kempis
47. "From the dawn of exact knowledge to the present day, observation, experiment, and speculation have gone hand in hand; and, whenever science has halted or strayed from the right path, it has been, either because its votaries have been content with mere unverified or unverifiable speculation (and this is the commonest case, because observation and experiment are hard work, while speculation is amusing); or it has been, because the accumulation of details of observation has for a time excluded speculation."
Author: Thomas Henry Huxley
48. "Am Schluß eines damals verfaßten, auch ins Englische übersetzten 'Lebensabrisses' hatte ich im halb spielerischen Glauben an gewisse Symmetrien und Zahlenentsprechungen in meinem Leben die ziemlich bestimmte Vermutung geäußert, daß ich im Jahre 1945, siebzigjährig, im selben Alter also wie meine Mutter, das Zeitliche segnen würde. Das ins Auge gefaßte Jahr, sagte der Mann, sei so gut wie abgelaufen, ohne daß ich Wort gehalten hätte. Wie ich es vor der Öffentlichkeit rechtfertigen wolle, daß ich immer noch am Leben sei."
Author: Thomas Mann
49. "Plea Against the Death PenaltyLook, examine, reflect. You hold capital punishment up as an example. Why? Because of what it teaches. And just what is it that you wish to teach by means of this example? That thou shalt not kill. And how do you teach that "thou shalt not kill"? By killing. I have examined the death penalty under each of its two aspects: as a direct action, and as an indirect one. What does it come down to? Nothing but something horrible and useless, nothing but a way of shedding blood that is called a crime when an individual commits it, but is (sadly) called "justice" when society brings it about. Make no mistake, you lawmakers and judges, in the eyes of God as in those of conscience, what is a crime when individuals do it is no less an offense when society commits the deed."
Author: Victor Hugo
50. "You're confronted with the quandary: do I grind things to a halt? Ideally you would, but I have better things to do than educate people."
Author: Wentworth Miller
