"Outside the window, there slides past that unimaginable and deserted vastness where night is coming on, the sun declining in ghastly blood-streaked splendour like a public execution across, it would seem, half a continent, where live only bears and shooting stars and the wolves who lap congealing ice from water that holds within it the entire sky. All white with snow as if under dustsheets, as if laid away eternally as soon as brought back from the shop, never to be used or touched. Horrors! And, as on a cyclorama, this unnatural spectacle rolls past at twenty-odd miles an hour in a tidy frame of lace curtains only a little the worse for soot and drapes of a heavy velvet of dark, dusty blue."

No Endymion will watch for his goddess tonight. there are no flocks out on the mountains; and it is well, for to-night she welcomes Aeolus."

The center is everywhere. Bent is the path of eternity."

Without hesitation, Woden gave up his left eye. "Now tell me." The troll said, "The secret is, Watch with both eyes!"

We can lay it on the line, bust a gut, show them a clean pair of heels. We can sprint the turn on a spring breeze and feel the winter leave our feet! We can, by God, let our demons loose and just wail on!"

Les mots sont des flèches, des balles de fusil, des oiseaux légendaires lancés à la poursuite des héros, les mots sont des poissons immémoriaux qui découvrent un secret terrifiant au fond de l'abîme, ils sont un filet assez ample pour attraper le monde et embrasser les cieux, mais parfois, ils ne sont rien, des guenilles usées, transpercées par le froid, des forteresses caduques que la mort et le malheur piétinent sans effort. (p. 235)"

She rolls over, revealing her voluptuous posterior to a man who is watching her from a window across the way, and reaches for a book under her bed."

When the beautiful and/or reasonably erudite do the same thing to sit on the library steps and read poetry, you think they are on to something deep. You see only deep brown wavy hair and strong legs, well honed by years of Ultimate Frisbee. You see that book of T. S. Eliot poems held by the hand with the long, graceful fingers, and you never stop to think that it shouldn't take half a semester to read one book of poems... that maybe he is not so much reading as getting really high every morning and sleeping it off on the library steps, forcing the people who actually go to class to step or trip over him."
Author: Maureen Johnson

No. Maybe it's the fact I've realized why other men had held nothing more than a vague interest for me "Oh, Beth!"

44. "For two years I've read the scrolls and learned the language, and I know more about magick than anyone here...You ask what the greatest power is, and I know that niether the dwarf magick of Terus, nor the dragon power of Victus is superior, even though I should say that Terus is because my father's a Mender and his spells come from the Green book. Even the elf magick that is so rare that none in Darton is a master or matron of it, is still just one of the three colours and no better than any other. That's the whole point of the system, and it's stupid...None of the scrolls explain anything, and niether do you. Instead we have to run around an obstacle course, trade jewels between rings and sit here and write rubbish answers to a trick question. And to end it all we have to listen to a Wizard from Celenia and hope to hear some more spells. Well I know as many spells as anyone here, but they're as useless as whistling to me."

"Gosh, think of the therapy bills. Not to mention how I'll probably never be able to have a normal relationship when I'm an adult. I'll live with you forever and become a cat lady." I cock an eyebrow at him. "You hate cats." He rolls his eyes. "Well, yeah, now I do. But I won't have a choice. It'll be inevitable. And I'll probably have to throw birthday parties for my feline companions where I bake them cakes out of Fancy Feast. All because you went back on your God swear."
Author: T.J. Klune

Well, I've been to London and I've been to gay Paris?I've followed the river and I got to the sea?I've been down on the bottom of a world full of lies?I ain't looking for nothing in anyone's eyes?Sometimes my burden seems more than I can bear?It's not dark yet, but it's getting thereI was born here and I'll die here against my will?I know it looks like I'm moving, but I'm standing still?Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb?I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from?Don't even hear a murmur of a prayer?It's not dark yet, but it's getting there-Bob Dylan, "Not Dark Yet" (1997)"
