Until the day in the yard with my playmate I thought this was what fathers did. Then I began to catalog and notice. They mowed lawns. They drank beer. They played in the yard with their kids, walked around the block with their wives, piled into campers, and, when they went out, wore joke ties or polo shirts, not Phi Beta Kappa keys and tailored vests."

13. "How many a poor immortal soul have I met well-nigh crushed and smothered under its load, creeping down the road of life, pushing before it a barn seventy-five feet by forty, its Augean stables never cleansed, and one hundred acres of land, tillage, mowing, pasture, and wood-lot. The portionless, who struggle with no such unnecessary inherited encumbrances, find it labor enough to subdue and cultivate a few cubic feet of flesh.—chapter 1, "Economy"
Author: Henry David Thoreau

Author: Herta Müller

18. "The ragged cat drags its belly across where the grass is short and the stones are sharp, under the lilacs that have no flowers. The flower smell is gone and the white falls off the trees. Seeds, Lark says, little seeds with parachutes to fly them, Termite, all in your hair, and she runs her fingers through his hair, saying how long and how pretty. He wants the grass long and strong, sounding whispers when it moves, but the mower cuts it. The mower cuts and cuts like a yowling knife. He hears the mower cutting and smells the grass pouring out all over the ground, the green stain so sharp and wet it spills and spills. The mower cuts everything away and Nick Tucci follows the mower, cutting and cutting while the orange cat growls low to move its soft parts across the chipped sharp stones. Deep under the lilacs where no one sees, the orange cat waits for the roar to stop."
Author: Jayne Anne Phillips

It is not a good place for sex: sex should take place in armchairs, or in bathrooms, or on lawns which have been brushed but not too recently mown, or on sandy beaches if you happen to have been circumcised. If you are too tired to have intercourse except in bed you are probably too tired anyway and should be husbanding your strength."

29. "Maybe we can just park and check out the fields," said Ethan. "It doesn't look like anyone's around."I was sad to leave the playlist behind--I was worried the car was my snow globe and it would shatter without us being in this small space filled with music and sunlight.It turned out, though, that the snow globe was bigger than I'd imagined. We high-stepped through grass that hadn't been mowed all spring, where blue and yellow wildflowers were growing. When we found a shady spot near a lone tree in the middle of the field, Ethan smoothed out some grass and said, "Let's sit."

"-Chce, aby przestano podsuwac Friedzie te chustke, która zadusila swoje dziecko.Kocur wzniósl slepia ku niebu, westchnal donosnie, ale nic nie powiedzial, moze dlatego, ze przypomnial sobie o swoim pokiereszowanym uchu.-Poniewaz – usmiechnawszy sie, zaczal mówic Woland – mozliwosc wziecia przez pania lapówki od tej idiotki Friedy jest oczywiscie najzupelniej wykluczona – nie daloby sie to przeciez pogodzic z pani królewska godnoscia – doprawdy nie wiem, co mam poczac.

Dlatego wlasnie mówilem o szmatach..."

36. "Widzenie i tak jest w wiekszosci oszustwem. Tak naprawde nie widzimy nic, w wysokiej rozdzielczosci jest tylko pare stopni tam, gdzie skupia sie oko. Reszta pola to mgla – tylko swiatlo i ruch. Ruch powoduje zogniskowanie. A nasze oczy caly czas lataja. To sie nazywa „ruchy sarkadyczne". Obraz sie rozmazuje, bo ruch jest za szybki, zeby mózg nadazyl z integrowaniem klatek, wiec miedzy przystankami oko po prostu sie wylacza. Rejestruje tylko te izolowane stop-klatki, ale mózg wycina puste kadry i montuje material, dajac mózgowi... zludzenie ciaglosci. (…) I wiesz co jest naprawde niesamowite? Jesli cos porusza sie tylko podczas tych przerw, mózg po prostu to ignoruje. To cos jest niewidzialne."
Author: Peter Watts
37. "I'll leave you guys to get acquainted. Somebody show Leo to dinner when it's time?" "I got it," one of the girls said. Nyssa, Leo remembered. She wore camo pants, a tank top that showed off her buff arms, and a red bandanna over her mop of dark hair. Except for the smiley-face Band-Aid on her chin, she looked like one of those female action heroes, like any second she was going to grab a machine gun and start mowing down evil aliens. "Cool," Leo said. "I always wanted a sister who could beat me up."
Author: Rick Riordan

Author: Ron Reagan
40. "Be like the single blade of grass. For she too, has been trampled on, mowed down, and hit with such bitterly cold stretches that she had to shut down to survive. Yet still she stands upright with dignity, knowing that she endures, and still she dances with the wind."
Author: Sandra Kring
41. "Any do-gooder can save one life or a dozen by spending x dollars, but that doesn't demonstrate anything unless you've got x dollars multiplied by the total number of lives that need saving. Stopping poverty one victim at a time is like mowing a lawn one blade at a time. The problem grows faster than the cure can be applied, the only people who profit are the agencies who claim to be cutting grass while they're actually applying fertilizer."
Author: Sheri S. Tepper
42. "Men are the scourge of the universe. I say we line them all up along the highway and then mow them down with big trucks. No, wait! Steamrollers! Yeah, let's steamroll them all until they're nothing more than slimy wet spots on the road! (Chrissy)"

44. "The summer came to life. It burst from gray to fierce blue and gold in the blink of an eye; the air pealed with grasshoppers and lawnmowers, swirled with branches and bees and dandelion seeds, it was soft and sweet as whipped cream, and over the wall the wood was calling us in the loudest of silent voices, it was shaking out all its best treasures to welcome us home. Summer tossed out a fountain of ivy tendrils, caught us straight under the breastbones and tugged; summer, redeemed and unfurling in front of us, a million years long."
Author: Tana French
45. "- Nie boisz sie wysokosci? - zdolal wykrztusic.Dwukwiat popatrzyl uwaznie w dól, na malenki swiat nakrapiany cieniami obloków. Mysl o strachu nie przyszla mu wcale do glowy.- Nie - odrzekl. - Niby dlaczego? Po upadku z czterdziestu stóp czlowiek jet tak samo martwy jak po upadku z tysiaca sazni. Tak uwazam.Rincewind usilowal rozwazyc to na chlodno, ale jakos nie pojmowal logiki wywodu. Nie spadania sie obawial, a raczej uderzenia o ziemie."
Author: Terry Pratchett
46. "The ripe, the golden month has come again, and in Virginia the chinkapins are falling. Frost sharps the middle music of the seasons, and all things living on the earth turn home again... the fields are cut, the granaries are full, the bins are loaded to the brim with fatness, and from the cider-press the rich brown oozings of the York Imperials run. The bee bores to the belly of the grape, the fly gets old and fat and blue, he buzzes loud, crawls slow, creeps heavily to death on sill and ceiling, the sun goes down in blood and pollen across the bronzed and mown fields of the old October."
Author: Thomas Wolfe

Author: Tom T. Hall
49. "When, however, one reads of a witch being ducked, of a woman possessed by devils, of a wise woman selling herbs, or even of a very remarkable man who had a mother, then I think we are on the track of a lost novelist, a suppressed poet, of some mute and inglorious Jane Austen, some Emily Bronte who dashed her brains out on the moor or mopped and mowed about the highways crazed with the torture that her gift had put her to. Indeed, I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "...if you didn't voice your opinion, [Steve Jobs] would mow you down," said Cook. "He takes contrary positions to create more discussion, because it may lead to a better result. So if you don't feel comfortable disagreeing, then you'll never survive."
Author: Walter Isaacson
