1. "Shut up, you fat water buffalo, rolling in the mud of other people's lives, is what she wanted to say. But she bit her tongue and reminded herself of how Mrs. Mahmoud had held her hand through Abdul's birth, which made her think that if she had found strength enough to push him out, she could hold her meanest comments in. At this moment, it seemed harder."
Author: Amy Waldman
2. "Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord, where I can go in and shut the door, and kneel to my Father in secret, and am at peace as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and above is trouble."
Author: Andrew Murray

4. "Sometimes a savage beauty lured me into the sun and I would start to love the danger a little. On these occasions I felt the reluctant love drained painfully from me as blood drains from a deep wound. The tigers lapped my love's blood and remained enemies. The inhabitants of the day laughed at the gift I wanted to bring them, and I shut myself in my inner room to escape the betrayal of their arrogant mouths."
Author: Anna Kavan
5. "Amour propre: Disposition fatale par laquelle l'homme corrompu a la folie de s'aimer lui-même, de vouloir se conserver, de désirer son bien-être. Sans la chute d'Adam nous n'aurions eu l'avantage de nous détester nous-mêmes, de haïr le plaisir, de ne point songer à notre conservation propre."

Author: Bo Lozoff
8. "I love to watch the fine mist of the night come on, The windows and the stars illumined, one by one, The rivers of dark smoke pour upward lazily, And the moon rise and turn them silver. I shall see The springs, the summers, and the autumns slowly pass; And when old Winter puts his blank face to the glass, I shall close all my shutters, pull the curtains tight, And build me stately palaces by candlelight."
Author: Charles Baudelaire
9. "When they had arranged their blankets the boy lowered the lamp and stepped into the yard and pulled the door shut behind, leaving them in profound and absolute darkness. No one moved. In that cold stable the shutting of the door may have evoked in some hearts other hostels and not of their choosing. The mare sniffed uneasily and the young colt stepped about. Then one by one they began to divest themselves of their outer clothes, the hide slickers and raw wool serapes and vests, and one by one they propagated about themselves a great crackling of sparks and each man was seen to wear a shroud of palest fire. Their arms aloft pulling at their clothes were luminous and each obscure soul was enveloped in audible shapes of light as if it had always been so. The mare at the far end of the stable snorted and shied at this luminosity in beings so endarkened and the little horse turned and hid his face in the web of his dam's flank."
Author: Cormac McCarthy
10. "I said shut up once already, with my mouth."
Author: Daniel Woodrell
11. "In a global race, can we really justify the huge number of expensive peripheral European institutions? Can we justify a commission that gets ever larger? Can we carry on with an organisation that has a multibillion pound budget but not enough focus on controlling spending and shutting down programmes that haven't worked?"
Author: David Cameron
12. "His green eyes sparkled as he entered, and Livia kicked her door shut. He caught her hands, and Livia let her lips touch his. They leaned into one another, mindful not to let her still-wet body touch his freshly dried one. It was like their kisses were over an imaginary wishing well."
Author: Debra Anastasia
13. "Don't they always go from bad to worse? There's no turning back--yourold self rejects you, and shuts you out. ~Lilly Bart"
Author: Edith Wharton
14. "?If you regard evidence as a constraint and seek to free yourself, you sell yourself into the chains of your whims. For you cannot make a true map of a city by sitting in your bedroom with your eyes shut and drawing lines upon paper according to impulse."
Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
15. "Poe, you wiener, get your ass over here!""Shut Up! I ain't a wiener!"Broken, adolescent male laughter echoed through the night air, and if I hadn't been so damned mad, I'd have laughed too. Something about hearing a group of idiotic pubescent fifteen-year-old boys say wiener just cracked me up."
Author: Elle Jasper
16. "To have faith requires courage, the ability to take a risk, the readiness even to accept pain and disappointment. Whoever insists on safety and security as primary conditions of life cannot have faith; whoever shuts himself off in a system of defense, where distance and possession are his means of security, makes himself a prisoner. To be loved, and to love, need courage, the courage to judge certain values as of ultimate concern – and to take the jump and to stake everything on these values."
Author: Erich Fromm
17. "I lay on the bed and shut my eyes, thinking that nobody really likes marriage, that it's a flawed arrangement, that people get enthusiastic and jump in for a hundred reasons and then, after the ceremony, after a few years, the whole deal turns into a concert they wouldn't have dreamed of attending."
Author: Frederick Barthelme
18. "Basically, Pizza Hut just backed out on the ad agency at the last minute. They got fired and we got fired. It was a simple as that. We do stuff like that on and off."
Author: Gene Ween
19. "God abandons only those who abandon themselves, and whoever has the courage to shut up his sorrow within his own heart is stronger to fight against it than he who complains."
Author: George Sand
20. "You can't expect life to play fair with your heart or your brain or your health. That's not the nature of the game we call life. You have to recognize the nature of the game and know that you can do your best to make the right choices, but life if going to do whatever the hell it pleases to you anyway. All you can control is how you react to whatever life throws at you. You can shut down or you can soar."
Author: Holly Nicole Hoxter
21. "People look at the outside of a person and assume they know everything there is to know about the inside of that person. The trouble is a few coats of paint and some new shutters can do a lot for the exterior of a house, but tell you nothing about its foundation or its ability to weather life's storms. I would say the same is true of people."
Author: Inglath Cooper
22. "The Eleven king looked sternly upon Thorin, when he was brought before him, and asked him many questions. But Thorin would only say that he was starving. "Why did you and your folk three times try to attack my people at their merrymaking?" asked the king. "We did not attack them," answered Thorin, "we came to beg because we were starving." "Where are your friends now, and what are they doing?" "I don't know, but I expect that they're all starving in the forest." "What were you doing in the forest?" "Looking for food and drink, because we were starving." "And what brought you into the forest at all?" asked the king angrily. At that Thorin shut his mouth and would not say another word."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
23. "Henry,' at last said one, again dipping the spoon into the flaming spirit, 'hast thou read Hoffman?''I should think so,' said Henry.'What think you of him?''Why, that he writes admirably; and, moreover, what is more admirable - in such a manner that you see at once he almost believes that which he relates. As for me, I know very well that when I read him of a dark night, I am obliged to creep to bed without shutting my book, and without daring to look behind me.''Indeed; then you love the terrible and fantastic?''I do,' said Henry. ("The Dead Man's Story"
Author: James Hain Friswell
24. "Telling writers to shut up is a sure way to keep them talking."
Author: James Wolcott
25. "I poke at my skull with a finger. It didn't feel soft or anything. I didn't feel insane. But if you'd really lost it, would you have enough left to know? Crazy people never thought they were crazy. "I've always talked to things," I said. "And to myself." "Good point," myself agreed with me. "Unless that means you've been nuts all along." "I don't need wiseass remarks," I told myself severely. "There's work to do. So shut up."
Author: Jim Butcher
26. "One day you're something, so promising and full o' dares, so big the world's too small a place to hold you. Then, 'fore you know it, you're old, and you realise all them things you had in mind you'll never get to. All them doors you felt too big to fit through have already shut. Only one left open and it leads to nothing but nothing."
Author: Joe Abercrombie
27. "He followed her into the bathroom and sat on the shut toilet seat while she washed her back with a brush. "I forgot to tell you," he said. "Liza sent us a wheel of Brie." "That's nice," she said, "but you know what? Brie gives me terribly loose bowels." He hitched up his genitals and crossed his legs. "That's funny," he said. "It constipates me." That was their marriage then--not the highest paving of the stair, the clatter of Italian fountains, the wind in the alien olive trees, but this: a jay-naked male and female discussing their bowels."
Author: John Cheever
28. "I want to hate him for what he did. Leaving us. It's not right. He's gone and I'm stuck here in this fucking funeral home, staring at his casket. There's no way out. Not for me, and certainly not for him. The casket is closed. Bolted shut for eternity. No one forced him to be a Jackass wannabe, though."
Author: Jolene Perry

"If nothing else, think of the children."She knew she'd regret it, but still she had to ask. "What children?"He grinned. "The lovely lithping children you could have together. Garethhhh and Hyathinthhhh. Hyathinth and Gareth. And the thublime Thinclair tots."Hyacinth stared at him like he was an idiot.Which he was, she was quite certain of it.She shook her head. "How on earth Mother managed to give birth to seven perfectly normal children and one freak is beyond me.""Thith way to the nurthery." Gregory laughed as sheheaded back into the room. "With the thcrumptious littleTharah and Thamuel Thinclair. Oh, yeth, and don't forgetwee little Thuthannah!"
Author: Julia Quinn
30. "Unter der wehmütig herabhängenden Krempe eines Filzhutes, dessen Alter, Farbe udn Gestalt selbste dem schärfsten Denker einiges Kopfzerbrechen verursacht haben würden, blickte zwischen einem Wald von verworrenen, schwarzen Barthaaren eine Nase hervor, die von fast erschreckendem Ausmaß war und jeder beliebigen Sonnenuhr als Schattenwerfer hätte dienen können. Infolge dieses gewaltigen Bartwuchses waren außer dem so verschwenderisch ausgestatteten Riechwerkzeug von den übrigen Gesichtsteilen nur die zwei kleinen, klugen Äuglein zu bemerken, die mit einer außerordentlichen Beweglichkeit gebabt zu sein schienen und mit schalkhafter List auf mir ruhten."
Author: Karl May
31. "Sometimes it's other people's voices you have to shut out."
Author: Kelly Osbourne
32. "If she had been a normal female, she would have swooned. But she was not normal, never had been."Good grief, you are impossibly handsome," she said breathlessly. "I vow, I have never experienced the like. For an instant, my brain stopped altogether. I must say, my lord, you do clean up well. But next time, I wish you would call out a warning before you come into view, and give me a chance to brace myself for the onslaught."Something dark flickered in his eyes. Then a corner of his hard mouth quirked up. "Miss Adams, you have an interesting — a unique — way with a compliment."The trace of a smile disoriented her further. "It is a unique experience," she said. "I never knew my brain to shut off before, not while I was full awake. I wonder if the phenomenon has been scientifically documented and what physiological explanation has been proposed."
Author: Loretta Chase
33. "MEMED'E SON MEKTUBUMDUR...Ölmekten, oglum korkmuyorum, ama ne de olsais arasinda bazan,irkilip ansizin, yahut yalnizliginda uyku öncesiningünleri saymak biraz zor.Dünyaya doymak olmuyor, Memetdoymak olmuyor...Dünyada kiraci gibi degil, yazligina gelmis gibi de degil, yasa dünyada babanin eviymis gibi...Tohuma, topraga, denize inan,insana hepsinden önce. Bulutu, makinayi, kitabi sev,insani hepsinden önce. Kuruyan dalin sönen yildizinsakat hayvaninduy kederini,ama hepsinden önce de insanin. Sevindirsin seni cümlesi nimetlerinsevindirsin seni karanlik ve aydinlik, sevindirsin seni dört mevsim,ama hepsinden önce insan sevindirsin seni...."

Author: P.G. Wodehouse
35. "All right," he muttered and threw his legs over the side of the bed. He pinched the bridge ofhis nose, squeezing his eyes shut. "Did anyone call VF?""No, we didn't want to get busted," the short, stocky human replied."Good, go downstairs and tell everyone it's cool. He won't hurt anyone. He's like a pettiger.""Tigers eat people," the short, stocky human said."Only if you piss him off, so don't give him a reason."
Author: Patricia Lynne
36. "Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any misery, any depression, since after all you don't know what work these conditions are doing inside you? Why do you want to persecute yourself with the question of where all this is coming from and where it is going? Since you know, after all, that you are in the midst of transitions and you wished for nothing so much as to change. If there is anything unhealthy in your reactions, just bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better."
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
37. "I am classified as a disabled veteran. The reason I'm disabled is because I have wounds and injuries that I got while on active duty... from parachute jumping to combat to gunshot wounds, all that stuff."

Weh!Süssestes Weib!Du traurigste aller Getreuen!Gegen dich wütetin Waffen die Welt:und ich, dem du einzig vertraut,für den du ihr einzig getrotzt,mit meinem Schutznicht soll ich dich schirmen,die Kühne verraten im Kampf?Ha, Schande ihm,der das Schwert mir schuf,beschied er mir Schimpf für Sieg!Muss ich denn fallen,nicht fahr' ich nach Walhall:Hella halte mich fest!"

"His large earsHear everythingA hermit wakesAnd sleeps in a hutUnderneathHis gaunt cheeks.His eyes blue, alert,Disappointed,And suspicious,Complain IDo not bring himThe same sort ofJokes the nursesDo.

AllI know of the TroubadoursI bring to this bed.I do not wantOr need to be shamed By him any longer.The general of shameHas dischargedHim, and left himIn this small provincialEgyptian town.If I do not wishTo shame him, thenWhy not love him?His long hands,Large, veined,Capable, can stillRetain hold of whatHe wanted. ButIs that what heDesireed? SomePowerful engineOf desire goes onTurning inside his body.He never phrasedWhat he desired,And I amhis son."

40. "He's very nice. He's something I replied. She considered this zipping her purse shut. Then she said Well everyone is. Everyone is Something. For some reason that stuck with me simple and yet not every since she'd said it. It was like a puzzle as well two vague words with one clear one between them."
Author: Sarah Dessen
41. "How did you learn to stop crying? (Leta)I nailed my heart shut and learned to stop caring about anyone except me. They can't make you cry when you don't give a shit about them or their opinions. You can only be hurt by the ones you love. (Aiden)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
42. "In an essay titled A View From the Front Line, Jencks described her experience with cancer as like being woken up midflight on a jumbo jet and then thrown out with a parachute into a foreign landscape without a map:"There you are, the future patient, quietly progressing with other passengers toward a distant destination when, astonishingly (Why me?) a large hole opens in the floor next to you. People in white coats appear, help you into a parachute and — no time to think — out you go."You descend. You hit the ground....But where is the enemy? What is the enemy? What is it up to?...No road. No compass. No map. No training. Is there something you should know and don't?"The white coats are far, far away, strapping others into their parachutes. Occasionally they wave but, even if you ask them, they don't know the answers. They are up there in the Jumbo, involved with parachutes, not map-making."
Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee
43. "But in high school the business of irrevocable choices began. Doors slipped shut with a faint locking click that was only heared clearly in the dreams of later years."
Author: Stephen King
44. "Rue drawing her last breath in my arms. And the song. I get to sing every note of the song. Something inside me shuts down and I'm too numb to feel anything. It's like watching complete strangers in another Hunger Games. But I do notice they omit the part where I covered her in flowers. Right. Because even that smacks of rebellion."
Author: Suzanne Collins
45. "As he was about to press the button to shut the doors, a young woman stepped in. She had that sort of beauty that deserved to be prosecuted for appearing without notice. Professor Khupe was confident that an appropriate law existed for such a purpose. However, no prosecutor could remain undistracted for long enough to find the said law in the criminal code. The young lady would enjoy a life of impunity."
Author: Taona Dumisani Chiveneko

Author: Tegan Quin
47. "Over and over and with the least provocation, they pulled from their stock of stories tales about the old folks, their grands and great-grands; their fathers and mothers. Dangerous confrontations, clever manoeuvres. Testimonies to endurance, wit, skill and strength. Tales of luck and outrage. But why were there no stories to tell of themselves? About their own lives they shut up. Had nothing to say, pass on. As though past heroism was enough of a future to live by. As though, rather than children, they wanted duplicates."
Author: Toni Morrison
48. "That's what's so ironic about the conservative backlash against BDSMers. With increased visibility comes increased bigotry, and conservatives continue to rally against kinky events by local groups to get them shut down. What the anti-kink fanatics don't understand about us is that we're geeks. Sex nerds. SM intellectuals. We pay money to spend a weekend going to classes."
Author: Tristan Taormino
49. "We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
Author: Viktor E. Frankl
50. "We have been cut off, the past has been ended and the family has broken up and the present is adrift in its wheelchair. ... That is no gap between the generations, that is a gulf. The elements have changed, there are whole new orders of magnitude and kind. [...]My grandparents had to live their way out of one world and into another, or into several others, making new out of old the way corals live their reef upward. I am on my grandparents' side. I believe in Time, as they did, and in the life chronological rather than in the life existential. We live in time and through it, we build our huts in its ruins, or used to, and we cannot afford all these abandonings."
Author: Wallace Stegner
