Author: A.P.
2. "The two of them carefully stepped around the crime scene, picking up Nick's arms, legs and organs, and brought them back to his head. They placed his extremities into position, and then pieced in the gorier bits, assembling a gruesome jigsaw puzzle. In a few moments, most of Nick's body was in place.The healing process took about twenty minutes. Elphaba and John stood spellbound as they watched a bloody collection of body parts reintegrate into a human form. As Nick's sinews, nerves, and muscle knit back into place, the gaping wound in Esperto's body also closed, completing a few minutes before Nick's healing. The panther form quickly shrank back to housecat just as Nick sat up. Esperto jumped in his lap and licked the remnants of blood off his face."Thank you Esperto," Nick said. He looked at Elphaba and John. "Well, that could have gone better."

4. "Kad sam bio dijete, nadao sam se da cu kad odrastem postati knjiga. Ne književnik, nego knjiga. Ljude se može pobiti kao mrave, pa ni književnike nije teško ubiti. Ali za knjigu, cak i ako je sustavno unište, postoji šansa da se neki primjerak spasio i da ce nastaviti živjeti na polici, živjeti nijemim životom na nekoj od zaboravljenih polica u nekoj zabacenoj knjižnici, u Rejkjaviku, Valladolidu ili Vancouveru."
Author: Amos Oz
5. "They went to the tree. Daemon dismounted and leaned against the tree, staring in the direction of the house. The stallion jiggled the bit, reminding him he wasn't alone. "I wanted to say good-bye," Daemon said quietly. For the first time, he truly saw the intelligence—and loneliness—in the horse's eyes. After that, he couldn't keep his voice from breaking as he tried to explain why Jaenelle was never going to come to the tree again, why there would be no more rides, no more caresses, no more talks. For a moment, something rippled in his mind. He had the odd sensation he was the one being talked to, explained to, and his words, echoing back, lacerated his heart. To be alone again. To never again see those arms held out in welcome. To never hear that voice say his name. To… Daemon gasped as Dark Dancer jerked the reins free and raced down the path toward the field. Tears of grief pricked Daemon's eyes. The horse might have a simpler mind, but the heart was just as big."
Author: Anne Bishop

Author: Anne Tyler
7. "But in the meantime, as a temporary measure, I hold what I call the doctrine of the jig-saw puzzle. That is: this remarkable occurrence, and that, and the other may be, and usually are, of no significance. Coincidence and chance and unsearchable causes will now and again make clouds that are undeniable fiery dragons, and potatoes that resemble eminent statesmen exactly and minutely in every feature, and rocks that are like eagles and lions. All this is nothing; it is when you get your set of odd shapes and find that they fit into one another, and at last that they are but parts of a large design; it is then that research grows interesting and indeed amazing, it is then that one queer form confirms the other, that the whole plan displayed justifies, corroborates, explains each separate piece."
Author: Arthur Machen
8. "No man is fit to educate unless he feels each pupil an end in himself, with his own rights and his own personality, not merely a piece in a jigsaw puzzle, or a soldier in a regiment, or a citizen in a State. Reverence for human personality is the beginning of wisdom, in every social question but above all in education."
Author: Bertrand Russell
9. "Heaven. The biggest waste of our time we ever invented, outside jigsaws."
Author: Caitlin Moran
10. "Ovo je mjesto tajna. Svetište. Svaka knjiga, svaki svezak koji vidiš, ima dušu. Dušu onoga tko ju je napisao i dušu onih koji su je procitali i proživjeli i sanjali je. Svaki put kad neka knjiga prijede iz ruku u ruke, svaki put kad netko prijede pogledom preko njezinih stranica, njezin duh naraste i ojaca. Na ovome mjestu knjige kojih se više nitko ne sjeca, knjige koje su izgubljene u vremenu, žive zauvijek, u išcekivanju dolaska ruku novog citatelja, novoga duha..."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
11. "Svaka knjiga, svaki svezak koji vidiš, ima dušu. Dušu onoga koji ju je napisao i onih koji su je citali, proživjeli i uz nju sanjarili. Svaki put kada knjiga prijede iz ruke u ruku, svaki put kad netko pogledom preleti njezine stranice, njezin duh raste i snaži se."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
12. "Malo stvari citatelja može obilježiti onako kako to cini prva knjiga koja pronade put do njegova srca. Te prve slike, odjek rijeci za koje mislimo da su ostale za nama, prate nas cijeloga života i u našem sjecanju klešu palacu kojoj cemo se, ranije ili kasnije - koliko god knjiga procitali, koliko god svjetova otkrili, koliko god naucili ili zaboravili - jednom vratiti."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
13. "?Bejah zauzet citanjem i pisanjem, kad grunu u moju sobu velik broj tih ljudi naoružanih neznanjem tupim kao batina i mržnjom oštrom poput noža. To ne bejahu moje svile od kojih im se zakrvaviše oci, no moje knjige poredane po policama; svilu smotaše pod ogrtace, a knjige pobacaše na pod i stadoše ih gaziti nogama i cepati ih na moje oci. A knjige te bejahu u kožu povezane i obeležene brojevima i bejahu napisane od ucenih ljudi, i u njima bejaše, da su ih hteli citati, hiljade razloga da me smesta ubiju i bejaše u njima, da su ih hteli citati, leka i melema za njihovu mržnju. I rekoh im da ih ne cepaju, jer mnoge knjige nisu opasne, opasna je samo jedna; i rekoh im da ih ne cepaju, jer citanje mnogih knjiga dovodi do mudrosti, a citanje jedne jedine do neznanja naoružanog mahnitošcu i mržnjom."
Author: Danilo Kiš
14. "Što je bilo, bilo je. Prošlost živi u nama i ne možemo je izbrisati. Pošto su snovi slika onoga sveta, i dokaz njegovog postojanja, susrecemo se u snovima; kleci kraj furune u koju trpa vlažna drva; ili me doziva promuklim glasom. Tada se budim i palim svetlo. Kajanje i bol se polako pretvaraju u sumornu radost secanja. Naš dugi, strasni i strašni roman ispunio je moj život, osmislio ga je, i ja ne tražim nikakve nadoknade. Mene nece biti u indeksu knjiga Mendela Osipovica, u njegovim biografijama ili u fusnoti uz neku pesmu. Ja, gospodine, jesam delo Mendela Osipovica, kao što je i on moje delo. Ima li lepšeg providenja?"
Author: Danilo Kiš

17. "My mother's been living alone for over ten years. She gets up at six every morning. She makes herself a coffee. She waters her plants. She listens to the news on the radio. She drinks her coffee. She has a quick wash. An hour later, at seven, her day is over. Two months ago a neighbour told her about your blog, and she asked me to buy her one of those thingummyjigs – by a thingummyjig she meant a computer. And since then, thanks to your trimmings, your ribbon bows, your tie-backs for curtains, she's rediscovered the joys of life. So don't tell me you don't know any answers."
Author: Grégoire Delacourt
18. "Everyone rushes wherever his instincts impel him, the populace swarms like insects over a corpse, poets pass by without having the time to sculpt their thoughts, hardly have they scribbled their ideas down on sheets of paper than the sheets are blown away; everything glitters and everything resounds in this masquerade, beneath its ephemeral royalties and its cardboard scepters, gold flows, wine cascades, cold debauchery lifts her skirts and jigs around…horror! horror! and then there hangs over it all a veil that each one grabs part of to hide himself the best he can. Derision! Horror – horror!"
Author: Gustave Flaubert
19. "A pettos speckled with gold ajiggle with a fremitus from the heart touches me like Athena's hoolet mewing in uncertain dark. So much is nature, whereon we build our particulars fastidious and critical. Your every arrow O Eros has hit me, as the song goes. O girls, girls. This arrow is Timo's curls, this is Heliodora's shoes, this the smell of quinces that blows from Demo's door, flowers plaited into Dorothea's hair and ox-eyed Antikleia's smile that is music from the islands, summer's stars."
Author: Guy Davenport
20. "He found on the spot the image of his recent history; he was like one of the figures of the old clock at Berne. THEY came out, on one side, at their hour, jigged along their little course in the public eye, and went in on the other side. He too had jigged his little course--him too a modest retreat awaited."
Author: Henry James

25. "I see Dr. Johnston at the end of the hall, walking toward us. He stops talking to the other doctors and gestures for me to wait. He holds up his hand: Stop. His face is eager yet unsmiling. I look in the other direction then back at him. His steps quicken, and I squint, for some reason pretending I don't recognize him. And I think: What if I'm wrong? What if Joanie doesn't make it out of this?"Scottie," I say. "This way."I walk in the other direction, away from Dr. Johnston, and she turns and follows me."Walk quickly," I tell her."Why?""It's a game. Let's race. Walk fast. Run."She takes off, her backpack jiggling on her back, and I follow her, walking quickly then breaking into a slow jog, and because Dr. Johnston is my friend's dad and was a friend of my father's, I feel like I'm fourteen again, running from the patriarchs."
Author: Kaui Hart Hemmings

Era insultante y doloroso, y era uno de esos títulos que solo alimentaban un miedo interno que toda chica debió tener de tiempo en tiempo. Sucia, perra, mojigata, idiota. Eran todos lo mismo. Toda chica se siente como si una de estas etiquetas sexistas la haya descrito hasta cierto punto."
Author: Kody Keplinger

Author: Lemony Snicket

"Isabel was squeezing the girl to her, sobbing at the touch of her, the legs fitting snugly around her waist and the head slotting automatically into the space beneath her chin, like the final piece of a jigsaw.

Author: M.L. Stedman

The shrink is a nice person; Roz likes her. Together the two of them labor over Roz's life as if it's a jigsaw puzzle, a mystery story with a solution at the end. They arrange and rearrange the pieces, trying to get them to come out better. They are hopeful: if Roz can figure out what story she's in, then they will be able to spot the erroneous turns she took, they can retrace her steps, they can change the ending. They work out a tentative plot."
Author: Margaret Atwood

They have punctured hearts. They have beaten lungs."
Author: Markus Zusak
35. "Also, I think I felt something come loose back there. I'm not trying to overreact or anything but I think it was my uterus. Honest. I think my uterus jiggled free.

Author: Monica Dickens

You people didn't have jigsaw puzzles.""Aw, shit."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
49. "I'm an actor. The fact that I'm involved in Jigsaw, I don't approach Jigsaw any differently than I approached The Nordic in 'The Firm' or FBI Agent Stokes in 'Mississippi Burning.'

Author: Tobin Bell

Today's Quote

Heartbreak is more common than happiness. No one wants to say that, but it's true. We're taught to believe not only that everyone deserves a happy ending, but that if we try hard enough, we will get one. That's simply no the case. Happy endings, life long loves, are the products of both effort and luck. We can control them, to some extent and though our feelings always seem to have a life of their own, we can at least be open to love. But, luck, the other component, well there's nothing we can do about that one. Call it God's plan or predestination or divine intervention, but we're all at its mercy. And sometimes God isn't very merciful. Jane taught me that."
