Henry loves my hair almost as though it were a creature unto itself, as though it has a soul to call its own, as though it could love him back.

"What I should have done ten years ago." ~ Preston, A Perfect Moment"

13. "Le stagioni si agognano l'un l'altra, come uomini e donne, in modo da essere guarite dai loro eccessi. La primavera, se si protrae per più di una settimana oltre il suo tempo naturale, comincia a patire l'assenza dell'estate che ponga fine ai giorni della promessa perpetua. L'estate dal suo canto comincia ben presto a invocare qualcosa che plachi la sua calura e il più ubere degli autunni alla lunga si stanca della sua generosità e reclama una rapida, aspra gelata che lo sterilizzi. Persino l'inverno, la più dura delle stagioni, la più implacabile, sogna all'apparire di febbraio la fiamma che presto lo scioglierà. Ogni cosa si stanca con il tempo e comincia a cercare un suo contrario che la salvi da se stessa. Così agosto cedette il posto a settembre e pochi se ne lamentarono."
Author: Clive Barker

19. "Listen--God only exists in people's minds. Especially in Japan, God's always been kind of a flexible concept. Look at what happened after the war. Douglas MacArthur ordered the divine emperor to quit being God, and he did, making a speech saying he was just an ordinary person. So after 1946 he wasn't God anymore. That's what Japanese gods are like--they can be tweaked and adjusted. Some American comping on a cheap pipe gives the order and presto change-o--God's no longer God. A very postmodern kind of thing. If you think God's there, He is. If you don't, He isn't.~pages 286-287"
Author: Haruki Murakami

"Alcuni anni prima Anne Elliot era stata una fanciulla molto carina, ma la sua giovanile bellezza era presto svanita, e dato che anche al colmo del suo splendore il padre non aveva trovato molto da ammirare (erano così diversi dai suoi i delicati tratti e i miti occhi scuri della figlia), non poteva esserci nulla che potesse suscitare la stima del padre ora che era così pallida e magra. Nona veva mai nutrito molte speranze - ora non ne aveva più nessuna- di poter un giorno o l'altro leggere il nome di lei in qualche pagina del suo amatissimo libro."
Author: Jane Austen

Thursday Next».«E magari pensi di essere spiritosa?»"

28. "Some girls, deserves to have you treat her like a princess everyday, just like you always do to me." - Maisie Preston"
Author: Kirsty Moseley
29. "Things are either devolving toward, or evolving from, nothingness. As dusk approaches in the hinterlands, a traveler ponders shelter for the night. He notices tall rushes growing everywhere, so he bundles an armful together as they stand in the field, and knots them at the top. Presto, a living grass hut. The next morning, before embarking on another day's journey, he unknots the rushes and presto, the hut de-constructs, disappears, and becomes a virtually indistinguishable part of the larger field of rushes once again. The original wilderness seems to be restored, but minute traces of the shelter remain. A slight twist or bend in a reed here and there. There is also the memory of the hut in the mind of the traveler — and in the mind of the reader reading this description. Wabi-sabi, in its purest, most idealized form, is precisely about these delicate traces, this faint evidence, at the borders of nothingness."
Author: Leonard Koren
30. "E mentre le lancette scattano, qualcuno ha gli occhi chiusi. Non è ancora il suo attimo, ma presto il momento verrà. Di luci abbaglianti si illuminerà nuovamente il ponte. Di note sognanti si riempirà il pentagramma.Dall'altra parte c'è ancora una strada. Un palcoscenico pronto, perché riprenda a suonare l'orchestra.Dall'altra parte splende il sole.Dall'altra parte.E' iniziata la traccia nascosta del disco.L'interminabile silenzio è finito."
Author: Leonardo Patrignani
31. "Julian:" Preston fired into the air, and it scared him. The dog, not Preston. And then he ran off to go find Blake and left me there. Bleeding. Preston did. Not the dog," he told Cameron very seriously. "And then Blake laughed at me."
Author: Madeleine Urban
32. "My father, Tommy, who was a trained draughtsman, played for Preston North End in the Finney era. He liked football but did not love it as I do."
Author: Mark Lawrenson
33. "Hey presto: time travel. You don't need a time machine, it turns out, you just need a friend to laugh like a teenager. Chronology shivers."
Author: Michael Marshall Smith
34. "Aprovar e reprovar são atitudes absurdas para com a vida, Não viemos ao mundo para dar vazão aos nossos preconceitos morais. Jamais presto atenção ao que diz o vulgo, nunca interfiro no que fazem as pessoas simpáticas."
Author: Oscar Wilde
35. "«È che non voglio andare all'università».«Ma perché?».«Perché penso che sia una perdita di tempo».«Una perdita di tempo! L'università?»«Sì» ho detto. «Almeno per me. Sono sicuro di poter imparare tutto quello che voglio leggendo i libri che mi interessano. Non vedo perché devo passare quattro anni - quattro anni molto costosi - a imparare un mucchio di cose di cui non mi importa niente e che quindi dimenticherò presto, solo per conformarmi a una norma sociale. E poi non sopporto l'idea di passare quattro anni a stretto contatto con gli studenti universitari. Tremo solo all'idea.»"
Author: Peter Cameron
36. "It is possible to conceive, Anselm said, of a being than which nothing greater can be conceived. Even an atheist can conceive of such a superlative being, though he would deny its existence in the real world. But, goes the argument, a being that doesn't exist in the real world is, by that very fact, less than perfect. Therefore we have a contradiction and, hey presto, God exists!"
Author: Richard Dawkins
37. "Reckless archaism. Arpeggiating under the influence. Presto in an andante zone."
Author: Richard Powers
38. "I placed some of the DNA on the ends of my fingers and rubbed them together. The stuff was sticky. It began to dissolve on my skin. 'It's melting -- like cotton candy.' 'Sure. That's the sugar in the DNA,' Smith said. 'Would it taste sweet?' 'No. DNA is an acid, and it's got salts in it. Actually, I've never tasted it.' Later, I got some dried calf DNA. I placed a bit of the fluff on my tongue. It melted into a gluey ooze that stuck to the roof of my mouth in a blob. The blob felt slippery on my tongue, and the taste of pure DNA appeared. It had a soft taste, unsweet, rather bland, with a touch of acid and a hint of salt. Perhaps like the earth's primordial sea. It faded away.Page 67, in Richard Preston's biographical essay on Craig Venter, "The Genome Warrior" (originally published in The New Yorker in 2000)."
Author: Richard Preston's
39. "Your limits. You are small and alone. You need friends to protect you. Without them, you are unable to withstand me. I vowed not to possess you again, but I can still kill you." The armored dudes stepped forward. The points of their swords hovered a few inches from Leo's face. Leo's fear suddenly made way for a whole lot of anger. This eidolon in the wolf helmet had shamed him, controlled him, and made him attack New Rome. It had endangered his friends and botched their quest. Leo glanced at the dormant spheres on the worktables. He considered his tool belt. He thought about the loft behind him—the area that looked like a sound booth. Presto: Operation Junk Pile was born. "First: you don't know me," he told Wolf Head. "And second: Bye." He lunged for the stairs and bounded to"
Author: Rick Riordan
40. "Down, wanton, down! Have you no shameThat at the whisper of Love's name,Or Beauty's, presto! up you raiseYour angry head and stand at gaze?Poor bombard-captain, sworn to reachThe ravelin and effect a breach--Indifferent what you storm or why,So be that in the breach you die!Love may be blind, but Love at leastKnows what is man and what mere beast;Or Beauty wayward, but requiresMore delicacy from her squires.Tell me, my witless, whose one boastCould be your staunchness at the post,When were you made a man of partsTo think fine and profess the arts?Will many-gifted Beauty comeBowing to your bald rule of thumb,Or Love swear loyalty to your crown?Be gone, have done! Down, wanton, down!"
Author: Robert Graves
41. "Iff replied that the Plentimaw Fishes were what he called 'hunger artists' — 'Because when they are hungry they swallow stories through every mouth, and in their innards miracles occur; a little bit of one story joins on to an idea from another, and hey presto, when they spew the stories out they are not the old tales but new ones. Nothing comes from nothing, Thieflet; no story comes from nowhere; new stories are born from old — it is the new combinations that make them new."
Author: Salman Rushdie
42. "A little bit of one story joins onto an idea from another, and hey presto, . . . not old tales but new ones. Nothing comes from nothing."
Author: Salman Rushdie
43. "You talk to them. And look at their faces. Cows have very expressive faces."I knew her well enough at that point not to be surprised by this. The first few months we'd worked together, I'd found her distant and intimidating, not just because she was Professor Preston's girlfriend, but also because she'd cultivated a very adult reserve that made her seem years older than the rest of us. She was all business at our editorial-board meetings, holding herself conspicuously aloof from the atmosphere of manic jocularity that dominated the proceedings. The more time we spent together, though, the more I'd come to realize that her reserve was rooted as much in shyness as in confidence, and that her quiet sophistication masked a powerful streak of girlish sincerity."
Author: Tom Perrotta
44. "Fra cento anni, d'altronde, pensavo giunta sulla soglia di casa, le donne non saranno più il sesso protetto. Logicamente condivideranno tutte le attività e tutti gli sforzi che una volta erano stati loro negati. La balia scaricherà il carbone. La fruttivendola guiderà la macchina. Ogni presupposto basato sui fatti osservati quando le donne erano il sesso protetto sarà scomparso; ad esempio (in strada stava passando un plotone di soldati) l'idea che le donne, i preti e i giardinieri vivano più a lungo. Togliete questa protezione, esponete le donne agli stessi sforzi e alle stesse attività, lasciatele diventare soldati, marinari, camionisti e scaricatori di porto, e vi accorgerete che le donne muoiono assai più giovani e assai più presto degli uomini; cosicché si dirà: "Oggi ho visto una donna", come si diceva "Oggi ho visto un aereo". Può accadere qualunque cosa quando la femminilità cesserà di essere un'occupazione protetta, pensavo, aprendo la porta."
Author: Virginia Woolf
