Author: Alexander Pope
2. "Hunde wälzen sich beim Gassigehen in verwesendem Fisch, daraufhin steht man in einem eisigen Fluss und wäscht den Hund. Dann stinken Hund und Mensch nach verwesendem Fisch. Man ist mit dem Auto gekommen, das heißt, das Auto stinkt jetzt auch nach verwesendem Fisch, weswegen man bei minus 30 Grad mit allen Fenstern offen nach Hause fährt und den Hund solange hasst."

7. "For, in the same fire, gold gleams and straw smokes; under the same flail the stalk is crushed and the grain threshed; the lees are not mistaken for oil because they issued from the same press. So, too, the tide of trouble will test, purify, and improve the good, but beat, crush, and wash away the wicked. So it is that, under the weight of the same affliction, the wicked deny and blaspheme God, and the good pray to Him and praise Him. The difference is not in what people suffer but in the way they suffer. The same shaking that makes fetid water stink makes perfume issue a more pleasant odor."
Author: Augustine Of Hippo

I like my chosen companions to be distinguishable from the undulating masses and I don't care how."
Author: Betty MacDonald

Author: Cynthia Hand

15. "The first rule of tinkering is, of course, ‘save all the parts.' But in dismantling the social fabric, the parts cannot all be saved, for one of them is time. Time, we were told, is a river flowing endlessly through the universe and one cannot step into the same river twice. Not only can we not undo actions taken in haste and in fear (the Japanese Internment), but those taken from the best reasons, but that have proved destructive (affirmative action); the essential mechanism of societal preservation is not inspiration, but restraint."
Author: David Mamet
16. "People change us. It is a rare, if not an impossible occurrence, that we come out of relationships unscathed. In our dealings with people we take something with us and we leave something behind.

Author: Donna Lynn Hope

19. "I myself will perhaps cry out with all the rest, looking at the mother embracing her child's tormentor: ‘Just art thou, O Lord!' but I do not want to cry out with them. While there's still time, I hasten to defend myself against it, and therefore I absolutely renounce all higher harmony. It is not worth one little tear of even that one tormented child who beat her chest with her little fist and prayed to ‘dear God' in a stinking outhouse with her unredeemed tears!"
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
20. "How to describe hell? Disembowelled landscape busy with suffering, incessant heat, permanent scarlet twilight, a swirling snowfall of ash, the stink of pain and the din of...if only, hell is two things: the absence of God and the presence of time. Infinite variations on that theme. Doesn't sound so bad, does it? Well, trust me."
Author: Glen Duncan
21. "Why can't you just lie and cheat like the others?" Dan snapped. "Can't you just see that's better than being nice one minute and then turning around and selling us out?

Author: Gordon Korman

Author: Graham Greene
23. "We found, before the hands of the dial had taught us the lapse of a week, that this would be something not to be endured. The sun sank lower every day behind the crags and silvery horns; the heavens grew to wear a hue of violet, almost black, and yet unbearably dazzling; as the notes of our voices fell upon the atmosphere they assumed a metallic tone, as if the air itself had become frozen from the beginning of the world and they tinkled against it; our sufferings had mounted in their intensity till they were too great to be resisted."

Author: Jay Crownover
27. "One encounters in the streets, late at night on the evenings of fetes, the most strange and bizarre passers-by. Do these nights of popular celebration cause ancient and forgotten avatars to stir in the depths of the human soul? This evening, in the movement of the sweaty and excited crowd, I am certain that I passed between the masks of the liberated Bythinians and encountered the courtesans of the Roman decadence.There emerged, this evening, from that swarming esplanade of Des Invalides - amid the crackle of fireworks, the shooting stars, the stink of frying, the hiccuping of drunkards and the reeking atmosphere of menageries - the wild effusions of one of Nero's festivals.It was like the odour of a May evening on the Basso-Porto of Naples. It was easy to believe that the faces in that crowd were Sicilian."
Author: Jean Lorrain
28. "For our own part, we learned a great deal about the techniques of love, and because we didn't know the words to denote what we saw, we had to make up our own. That was why we spoke of "yodeling in the canyon" and "tying the tube", of "groaning in the pit", "slipping the turtle's head", and "chewing the stinkweed". Years later, when we lost our own virginities, we resorted in our panic to pantomiming Lux's gyrations on the roof so long ago; and even now, if we were to be honest with ourselves, we would have to admit that it is always that pale wraith we make love to, always her feet snagged in the gutter, always her single blooming hand steadying itself against the chimney, no matter what our present lovers' feet and hands are doing."
Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
29. "If I wasn't a decent woman I'd heist a leg and pee in your ear until it washed out that stinking pile of crap you call brains."
Author: Jim Thompson
30. "By noon, in a gray February world, we had come down through snow flurries to land at Albany, and had taken off again. When the snow ended the sky was a luminous gray. I looked down at the winter calligraphy of upstate New York, white fields marked off by the black woodlots, an etching without color, superbly restful in contrast to the smoky, guttering, grinding stink of the airplane clattering across the sky like an old commuter bus."
Author: John D. MacDonald

Author: Linda Leigh Hargrove
36. "Now, there's this about cynicism, Sergeant. It's the universe's most supine moral position. Real comfortable. If nothing can be done, then you're not some kind of shit for not doing it, and you can lie there and stink to yourself in perfect peace."
Author: Lois McMaster Bujold

I grabbed a clean shirt and pants from my saddlebags."Well, she could have handled it better," he grumped."No. She couldn't."He settled into a sulky silence as we visited the bathhouse."
Author: Maria V. Snyder
39. "Shall I show you the half-dozen other rooms in this hospital where these scenes are repeated? And what of the other hospitals? Printing House Square is small and tame. Even in the private institutions uptown you can see a show just like this: there is nothing as disgusting as an obese cadaver in which all the futile pleasures of many years finally arise to fill it full-blown with stinking rotten gases. The city is burning and under siege. And we are in a war in which everyone is killed and no one is remembered.""What am I supposed to do, then," Peter Lake asked, "if it's like you say?""Is there someone you love?""Yes.""A woman?""Yes.""Then go home to her.""And who will remember her?""No one. That's just the point. You must take care of all that now."
Author: Mark Helprin
40. "The silver lining of those years when I was trying to get 'Tinkers' published but couldn't were the years when I had to decide, Why do I want to be a writer? I realized that writing is the thing itself; writing is not a means to publication, writing is not a predicate of publication, so I spent years making art for art's sake."
Author: Paul Harding
41. "Stinky says women should be obscene but not heard."
Author: Robert A. Heinlein
42. "By the way, don't ever let someone convince you that there's anything — and I mean anything — good about dying. There is nothing redemptive in decline and decay. The hard candy of necrosis has no nougat center where the human spirit prevails over all. Death is not a ‘journey,' a ‘part of life,' a ‘release from suffering,' or any other such bullshit euphemism we employ to comfort and delude ourselves. And while we're on the subject, no one ‘passes on' or ‘passes away,' either, and they sure as fuck don't ‘cross over.' They die, and then they start to swell and stink in the very moment."
Author: Ron Currie Jr.
43. "Dalek: I will talk to the Doctor.The Doctor: Oh will you? That's nice. Hello!Dalek: The Dalek strategem nears completion. The fleet is almost ready. You will not intervene.The Doctor: Oh really?

The Doctor: No.Dalek: Explain yourself.The Doctor: I said, "No."Dalek: What is the meaning of this negative?The Doctor: It means, "No."Dalek: But she will be destroyed!The Doctor: No! 'Cause this is what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna rescue her. I'm gonna save Rose Tyler from the middle of the Dalek fleet, and then I'm gonna save the Earth. And then—just to finish off—I'm gonna wipe every last stinking Dalek out of the sky!Dalek: But you have no weapons, no defenses, no plan.The Doctor: Yeah! And doesn't that scare you to death? Rose?Rose: Yes, Doctor?The Doctor: I'm coming to get you."
Author: Russell T. Davies
44. "Tau nepatinka, kad jie [filosofai] per daug nekonkretus? Noretum, kad aiškiau formuluotu minti, kad butu mažiau metaforu, palyginimu ir paraboliu, o daugiau tiesos, grynumo, nepagražinto, atviro, skambaus, iki skausmo teisingo žodžio? Jie negali taip kalbeti. Jie negali kalbeti konkreciai. Jeigu jie kalbetu kaip fizikai ar matematikai, tai jau butu ne pranašystes, ne biblines ar filosofines amžinosios tiesos, tai butu instrukcijos. Tai butu saugumieciu instrukcijos kaip žudyt žmones. Visi diktatoriai griebdavosi tokiu instrukciju, bet ju esme - kulka i pakauši."
Author: Sigitas Parulskis

Author: Steve Vernon
