    “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
    Apple Inc.

    Marilyn Monroe
    “I believe that everything happens for a reason.

    Marilyn Monroe

    Marilyn Monroe

    “Now, this is where I draw the line! It's bad enough everybody in town's going to be thinkin' I'm sleeping with a depressed, lice-ridden, hemorrhoidal foreigner who likes to be tied up and might be pregnant, although-since she's just about cornered the market on condoms-I don't know how that could have happened. But I will not-you listen to me, Emma!-I absolutely will not have anybody thinkin' a woman of mine needs a vaginal moisturizer, do you hear me?”

    “He shook his head. "The next time I hear a women going on about how neurotic men are, I'm going to remember this. You tell me you like my body, and what do I say? I say, thank you. Then I tell you I like yours and what do I hear? A long lists of grievances.”

    marry you. I want to sleep with you every night, make love with you, have kids. I want to fight together and
    work together and—just be together. Now are you going to keep standing there, staring at me, or could
    you put me out of my misery and say you still love me, at least a little?”

    “He grinned, and right then it occurred to him that he hadn't enjoyed himself so much with a woman in a very long time. If Annabelle Granger were a few inches taller, a hell of a lot more sophisticated, better organized, less bossy, and more inclined to worship at his feet, she'd have made a perfect wife.”
    Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Match Me If You Can

    “Both of you’ll just have to believe me. Emma’s one of those women who was born with… The thing is, the minute a heterosexual man looks at her, all he can think about is – well, her mouth, and – ”

    “Emma?” Torie’s own mouth gaped in astonishment.

    Patrick crossed his legs. “Maybe we’re not talking about the same person. British accent? Good appetite? Hums songs from The Lion King when she doesn’t think anybody’s listening?”

    “Once again Bobby Tom glanced at her over the top of Cheryl Lynn’s fluffy blond curls. “How was the spaghetti you ordered?”
    “It was excellent.”
    “I’m not much for the green stuff they poured over it.”
    “Are you referring to the pesto?”
    “Whatever. I like a nice meat sauce.”
    “Of course you do. With a double rack of greasy ribs on the side, I’ll bet.”
    “You’re making my mouth water just thinking about it.”
    Cheryl Lynn lifted her head from his shoulder. “You’re doin’ it again, B.T.”
    “Doing what, sweetheart?”
    “Talkin’ to her.”
    “Oh, I don’t think so darlin’. Not when I got you on my mind.”

    “I can't remember a day when I didn't love you. I loved you the day I practically knocked you out with a snowball. I loved you when I flattened the tires on your bike so I could walk you home.. So don't tell me I don't love you- Just don't tell me that.”

    “Home was his favorite place too. But home for him was anywhere Jane happened to be. Never in his life had he loved someone as much as he loved her. So much that it scared him sometimes.
    He pulled her against him and looked out over the city. He was in love with his wife. Yeah, he knew what that said about him. That he was a goner. Leg-shackled for life. Whipped by a short woman with a big attitude. Yep, that's what it said about him, and he didn't care.”

    “Exactly what am I supposed to care about? That we were just getting to the fun stuff? That my hand
    was on your breasts, and your hands were all over my chest, and both of us were having a good time?
    Damn right I care about that. I wasn’t finished. But don’t expect me to care that a little old lady looked in
    the window and watched. Why should I care what people are going to say about that? People have
    talked about me since the day I was born. I stopped caring a long time ago.”

    “I know about safe sex," Nathan said, interrupting Jack's thoughts.

    Jack swallowed. "That's good." He smiled at his son, vastly relieved that there would be no hard questions about his own sex life.

    "What I want to know is..." Nathan stole a quick look back at the tent. "Where is the clitoris exactly?"

    Jack's smile fell and he opened his mouth. No words came out so he closed it.

    Nathan had no problem forming his words, though. "And what the heck is a G-spot?”

    “Luc scored forty and slapped the darts in her pal,. “The light sucks in here.”
    “No.” She smiles and took great pleasure in announcing, “You suck.”
    His gaze narrowed.
    Weeks of anger and hurt poured out of her and she said, louder than she’d intended, “And worse – you’re a whiner.”
    A collective intake of breath caught their attention and she and Luc turned and looked at the guys watching a few feet away.
    “Lucky’s gonna kill Sharky,” Sutter predicted from the sidelines.
    By taut agreement they both went to their respective corners. Jane shot and scored sixty-five. Luc scored thirty-four.
    “Now remind me. Why do they call you Lucky?” she asked as she reached for the darts.
    He pulled them back out of her reach as a slow, purely licentious smile curved his mouth. A smile that told her he was remembering her on her knees kissing his tattoo. “I’m sure if you think long and hard, you’ll remember the answer to that.”
    “No.” She shook her head. “Some things just aren’t that memorable.”
    Rachel Gibson, See Jane Score

    “Why?”

    “Glaring at the doctor, Kev spoke in Romany. “Ka xlia ma pe tute.” (I'm going to shit on you.)

    “Which means,” Rohan said hastily, “ ‘Please for­give the misunderstanding; let's part as friends.’ ”

    Te malavel les i menkiva,” Kev added for good mea­sure. (May you die of a malignant wasting disease.)

    “Roughly translated,” Rohan said, “that means, ‘May your garden be filled with fine, fat hedgehogs.’ Which, I may add, is considered quite a blessing among the Rom.”
    Lisa Kleypas, Seduce Me at Sunrise
