1. "Joanna gave me a leveling look. "You think we're the only major that's superinsular and clique-ish and gossips about everyone else in it? Believe me, if Nathan bought a new brand of toothpaste, those math nerds probably already know about it."
Author: Alicia Thompson

5. "The Guide laughed. "You are falling into their own error," he said, "the change is not radical, nor will it be permanent. That idea depends on a curious disease which they have all caught---an inability to dis-believe advertisements. To be sure, if the machines did what they promised, the change would be very deep indeed. Their next war, for example, would change the state of their country from disease to death. They are afraid of this themselves---though most of them are old enough to know by experience that a gun is no more likely than a toothpaste or a cosmetic to do the things its makers say it will do. It is the same with all their machines. Their labour-saving devices multiply drudgery; their aphrodisiacs make them impotent: their amusements bore them: their rapid production of food leaves half of them starving, and their devices for saving time have banished leisure from their country. There will be no radical change."
Author: C.S. Lewis
6. "I had used all except peach labels. I pasted the peach labels on peach cans, and then came to apricots. Well, aren't apricots peaches? And there are plums that are virtually apricots. I went on, either mischievously, or scientifically, pasting the peach labels on cans of plums, cherries, string beans, and succotash. I can't quite define my motive, because to this day it has not been decided whether I am a humourist or a scientist. I think that it was mischief, but, as we go along, there will come a more respectful recognition that also it was scientific procedure."
Author: Charles Fort
7. "Randy young couples in Naples don't even bother with lovers' lanes they simply park on any street and paste the windows with newspaper. A daughter with an encyclopaedic knowledge of current affairs is not something a Neapolitan father brags about. To ensure the undivided attentions of their partner some men prefer to paste the windows with the sports newspaper. Maybe that's why La Gazzetta dello Sport is pink—to enhance the mood."
Author: Chris Harrison
8. "Right. Just let the nice monster turn him into paste."
Author: Christopher Farnsworth
9. " commonplace, adj. ... But then I'll walk into the bathroom and find you've forgotten to put the cap back on the toothpaste again, and it will be this splinter that I just keep stepping on."
Author: David Levithan
10. "Strip back the beliefs pasted on by governesses, schools, and states, you find indelible truths at one's core. Rome'll decline and fall again, Cortes'll lay Tenochtitlan to waste again, and later...the sun'll grow cold again. When it ends, the Old One plays it again, for an eternity of eternities."
Author: David Mitchell
11. "Widespread introduction of the process [of irradiating foods] has thus far been impeded, however, by a reluctance among consumers to eat things that have been exposed to radiation. According to current USDA regulations, irradiated meat must be identified with a special label and with a radura (the internationally recognized symbol of radiation). The Beef Industry Food Safety Council - whose members include the meatpacking and fast food giants - has asked the USDA to change its rules and make the labeling of irradiated meat completely voluntary. The meatpacking industry is also working hard to get rid of the word 'irradiation,; much preferring the phrase 'cold pasteurization.'...From a purely scientific point of view, irradiation may be safe and effective. But he [a slaughterhouse engineer] is concerned about the introduction of highly complex electromagnetic and nuclear technology into slaughterhouses with a largely illiterate, non-English-speaking workforce."
Author: Eric Schlosser
12. "When asked whether or not we are Marxists, our position is the same as that of a physicist, when asked if he is a "Newtonian" or of a biologist when asked if he is a "Pasteurian."
Author: Ernesto Guevara
13. "Pauline kept a scrapbook into which she pasted important articles that she had cut out of the newspapers. These were about the courageous deeds that had been done by people even if they only had one leg or couldn't see or had been dropped on their heads when they were babies.'It's to make me brave,' she'd explained to Annika."
Author: Eva Ibbotson
14. "In allem aber möchte ich zum Wesen dringen.Beim Werk, beim Suchen eines Wegs,In Herzens Ringen.Zum Wesen der Vergangenheit,Es aufzufinden,Bis zu den Wurzeln, bis zum Kern, Bis zu den Gründen.Und will die Schicksalsfäden klugZusammenstecken,Will denken, fühlen, lieben undStets neu entdecken(Boris Pasternak)"
Author: Fabio Volo
15. "Je le saluerais d'un cri de victoire, s'il [l'homme nouveau] pouvait prouver que l'existence, sur ce vaste continent, peut se passer des articles de première nécessité ci-dessus mentionnés [laboratoires, usines chimiques, aciéries, avions, munitions, tracteurs et aliments pasteurisés]. Oui, ce serait un type très suprême d'homme s'il apportait la démonstration que l'existence, tant ici qu'ailleurs, peut se passer de travail forcé, d'instruments de torture, d'outils de mort, d'argent, de dernière mode, de prophylaxie, de gouvernement et la suite."
Author: Henry Miller
16. "Hark ye yet again,--the little lower layer. All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event--in the living act, the undoubted deed—there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask! How can the prisoner reach outside except by thrusting through the wall? To me, the white whale is that wall, shoved near to me. Sometimes I think there's naught beyond. But ‘tis enough."
Author: Herman Melville
17. "Every soul has a pastEvery soul lives a presentAnd every soul deserve a futureno judging on one's pastbecause its might be your future"

18. "Chaque fois que je pense a lui, je me souviens d'une anecdote qu'on m'a racontée : un jour, les Gardes rouges fouillèrent sa maison, et trouvèrent un livre caché sous son oreiller, écrit dans une langue étrangère, que personne ne connaissait. La scène n'était pas sans ressemblance avec celle de la bande du boiteux autour du Cousin Pons. Il fallut envoyer ce butin à l'Université de Pékin pour savoir enfin qu'il s'agissait d'une Bible en latin. Elle coûta cher au pasteur car, depuis, il était forcé de nettoyer la rue, toujours la même, du matin au soir, huit heures par jour, quel que fût le temps. Il finit ainsi par devenir une décoration mobile du paysage."
Author: Honoré De Balzac

25. "Anyway, here." He handed me a bag. "Thought you might be hungry. Since you're our guests, it would be impolite if we didn't share our food with you. That's your rations for the week. Try to make it last." At my surprised look, he rolled his eyes. "Not all of us live on oil and electricity, you know.""What about Ash and Puck?""Well, I'm pretty sure eating our food won't melt their insides to gooey paste. But you never know." (Glitch)-----------------Puck sat and gazed mournfully into the bowl I handed him. "Not an apple slice to be found," he sighed, picking through the gooey mess with his fingers. "How can mortals even pass this off as fruit? It's like a peach farmer threw up in a bowl."Ash picked up the spoon, gazing at it like it was an alien life form."

31. "In these days Melissa's absorbed and provoking gentleness had all the qualities of a rediscovered youth. Her long uncertain fingers - I used to feel them moving over my face when she thought I slept, as if to memorize the happiness we had shared. In her there was a pliancy, a resilience which was Oriental - a passion to serve. My shabby clothes - the way she picked up a dirty shirt seemed to engulf it with an overflowing solicitude; in the morning I found my razor beautifully cleaned and even the toothpaste laid upon the brush in readiness. Her care for me was a goad, provoking me to give my life some sort of shape and style that might match the simplicity of hers. Of her experiences in love she would never speak, turning from them with a weariness and distaste which suggested that they had been born of necessity rather than desire. She paid me the comlpiment of saying: "For the first time I am not afraid to be light-headed or foolish with a man"."
Author: Lawrence Durrell

The wisdom, perfection, and beauty of the colors and forms I passed were more than enough, in their collectivity, to hint at the principles which govern the hereafter, whatever that may be. Indeed, even a detail of one painting can offer solid direction in this regard if one knows how to look"
Author: Mark Helprin
36. "More than once, I began a conversation detailing a recentshopping trip or the latest great deal, only to abruptly stop talkingwhen I saw my companion's eyes glaze over. Gradually it dawnedon me that not everyone else was thrilled by free shampoo andtoothpaste. In fact, I realized, while my hobby seemed tedious tosome, it was downright bizarre to others."

40. "Perhaps, Howard thought, the curtains and murals and pastel angels are a mercy, a dim reflection of things fit for the fragility of human beings. Whenever he looked at the angels in the family Bible, though, he saw their radiant golden halos and resplendant white robes and he shook with fear."
Author: P. Harding
41. "We may regard the cell quite apart from its familiar morphological aspects, and contemplate its constitution from the purely chemical standpoint. We are obliged to adopt the view, that the protoplasm is equipped with certain atomic groups, whose function especially consists in fixing to themselves food-stuffs, of importance to the cell-life. Adopting the nomenclature of organic chemistry, these groups may be designated side-chains. We may assume that the protoplasm consists of a special executive centre (Leistungs-centrum) in connection with which are nutritive side-chains... The relationship of the corresponding groups, i.e., those of the food-stuff, and those of the cell, must be specific. They must be adapted to one another, as, e.g., male and female screw (Pasteur), or as lock and key (E. Fischer)."
Author: Pasteur
42. "Cheesecake. Are you shitting me? Who invented that? Probably Jesus of Nazareth. Or maybe Louis Pasteur. It makes me physically sick to think that Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, yet the name of the inventor of cheesecake isn't tattooed on Dick Cheney's face."
Author: Rob Delaney

Author: Robert A. Heinlein
44. "I myself, however, could never resist the temptation to read raisin paste for wine in the story of the Miracle of Cana.

48. "Mom's hard and fast rule had been that my friends and I had to stay away from those tracks. The last GS&WM freight had passed along them ten years before, and weeds were growing up between the rusty ties, but that made no difference to Mom. She was convinced that if we played there, one last train (call it the Kid-Eating special) would go bulleting through and turns us all to paste. Only she was the one who got hit by an unscheduled train -- metastatic breast cancer at the age of forty-seven. One mean fucking express."
Author: Stephen King

But, like Pasteur, when he was young, or anyone else who has something to do, I wish I had more money for my literary experiments."William Carlos Williams, c. 1931"
