1. "Maybe the adults around me were too cynical and old to do anything to help innocent people like Mrs. Kahn or Charlie, or the black kids who were called nigger at school, or the girls Tim Miller groped on the bus. Maybe they were numb enough to blame the system for things they were too lazy to change."
Author: A.S. King
2. "In those times panics were common, and few days passed without some city or other registering in its archives an event of this kind. There were nobles, who made war against each other; there was the king, who made war against the cardinal; there was Spain, which made war against the king. Then, in addition to these concealed or public, secret or open wars, there were robbers, mendicants, Huguenots, wolves, and scoundrels, who made war upon everybody. The citizens always took up arms readily against thieves, wolves or scoundrels, often against nobles or Huguenots, sometimes against the king, but never against cardinal or Spain. It resulted, then, from this habit that on the said first Monday of April, 1625, the citizens, on hearing the clamor, and seeing neither the red-and-yellow standard nor the livery of the Duc de Richelieu, rushed toward the hostel of the Jolly Miller. When arrived there, the cause of the hubbub was apparent to all."
Author: Alexandre Dumas
3. "Marilyn, for her part, focused on what was driving Arthur away. She spoke of the monster inside her.

When inevitably the monster disclosed itself, Miller was shocked and disappointed. He started to pull back."

24. "Henry Miller - "Primavara neagra": "În clocotul ?i agita?ia orei de vîrf, eu stau ?i visez lînga un aperitiv. Cerul e calm, norii nemi?ca?i. Stau în punctul mort al traficului, împacat cu tihna vie?ii noi ce se na?te din putreziciunea din jur. Talpile mele ating radacinile unui trup fara vîrsta pentru care nu am nici un nume. Comunic cu întregul pamînt. Iata-ma în chiar pîntecul vremii unde nimic nu-mi poate tulbura calmul. Înca un ratacitor care a aflat patima propriei nelini?ti. Iata-ma pe strada, compunîndu-mi cîntecul. Este cîntecul pe care l-am auzit în copilarie, cîntecul pe care l-am pierdut în lumea cea noua ?i pe care nu l-a? mai fi regasit daca nu a? fi cazut ca o crengu?a în oceanul timpului."

The hotdog was strictly for show, a prop, a way of blending in.Burst of static in his right ear: "G-man, you read me? What's yo' twenty, dawg?"Gareth departed the concession stand, stopped, looked down at his hands, and tossed the hotdog into the first trash receptacle he saw. Raising his wrist to his mouth, he spoke into the cuff of his long-sleeved tee. "Concession stand, Section B. Over."Allowing his hand to linger by his chin, he gingerly scratched his cheek as if he had meant to do it all along. The same voice: "Yo, I'm in position. Ready when you is."Gareth cringed while crossing the wide concourse, checking both directions. The giant hallway was the main drag of a ghost town, its only residents a solitary custodian sweeping debris into a portable waste bin and the concession crew to his rear."

He's found that in some cases where the FTD is localized on the left side of the brain, people who had never picked up a paintbrush or an instrument can develop extraordinary artistic and musical abilities at the very end of their lives. As their other cognitive skills fade away, they become narrow savants."

31. "Henry Miller, Genet, Sade, Bataille are really important writers for me and I love them, but I feel often they don't love me, you know? I feel I always have to wrap my head around the way the girl is treated in the works, and the way the woman writer has been treated within their philosophies. I think of Kathy Acker's Blood and Guts in High School, where Janey Smith is in an S&M relationship with Jean Genet, who she follows around the deserts of Algeria, and he's horrible to her, and that's what I think of when I think of my relationship to those writers. I think you have to read the text, obviously, despite that. You seem to be subverting Sade and Bataille's ideas of the whore, and Henry Miller – all of his cunt portraits, all of his horrors that he writes about – you're writing about it from an interiority and a subjectivity that we don't typically get with the ‘whore' or the ‘slut' or the sexual girl."

Author: Leslie Fiedler
37. "One night I begged Robin, a scientist by training, to watch Arthur Miller's 'Death of a Salesman' with me on PBS. He lasted about one act, then turned to me in horror: 'This is how you spend your days? Thinking about things like this?' I was ashamed. I could have been learning about string theory or how flowers pollinate themselves. I think his remark was the beginning of my crisis of faith. Like so many of my generation in graduate school, I had turned to literature as a kind of substitute for formal religion, which no longer fed my soul, or for therapy, which I could not afford.... I became interested in exploring the theory of nonfiction and in writing memoir, a genre that gives us access to that lost Middlemarch of reflection and social commentary."

Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. They said do not trust the pilgrims, especially Sarah Miller. And for all of these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground."
Author: Paul Rudnick
42. "When John Kerry and Zell Miller and George Bush can agree on an issue, you know it's got legs."
Author: Phil Bredesen
43. "Let your rest be perfect in its season, like the rest of waters that are still. If you will have a model or your living, take neither the stars, for they fly without ceasing, nor the ocean that ebbs and flows, nor the river that cannot stay, but rather let your life be like that of the summer air, which has times of noble energy and times of perfect peace. It fills the sails of ships upon the sea, and the miller thanks it on the breezy uplands; it works generously for the health and wealth of all men, yet it claims it hours of rest.. "I have pushed the fleet, I have turned the mill, I have refreshed the city, and now though the captain may walk impatiently on the quarter-deck, and the miller swear, and the city stink, I will stir no more until it pleases me."
Author: Philip Gilbert Hamerton
