S. Jane Sloat
“My heart is small, like a love of buttons or black pepper.”
S. Jane Sloat, In the Voice of a Minor Saint

Karen Quan
“Push my buttons, and I'll push you off a bridge. ”
Karen Quan, Write like no one is reading

Mary Buchan
“The good thing about having our buttons pushed is that we can no longer ignore the sensitive areas where we need to heal.”
Mary Buchan, Over iT: How to Live Above Your Circumstances and Beyond Yourself

Lemony Snicket
“That's true," the male officer said. "Stew Mitchum is as cute as a button."

I tried to think of buttons I'd seen that liked to torture small animals, but I couldn't.”
Lemony Snicket, Who Could That Be at This Hour?

Jennifer Ashley
“Why are you all buttoned up like that?" Cameron ran his gaze down the blackberry-shaped buttons of her bodice.[...] "You were happy to bare all last night," Cameron said. He let his mallet handler hover an inch from her chest. "Your bodice was down here."

Ainsley cleared her throat. "Low neckline for evening, high for morning."[...]

"This doesn’t suit you," Cameron said.

"I can’t help the fashion, Lord Cameron."

Cameron poked the top button with his gloved finder. "Undo this."

Ainsley jumped. "What?"

"Unbutton your damned frock."

She nearly choked. "Why?"

"Because I want you to." Cameron's smile spread across his face, slow and sinful, and his voice went low. Dangerous. "Tell me, Mrs. Douglas. How many buttons will you undo for me?”
Jennifer Ashley, The Many Sins of Lord Cameron

Bill Bryson
“Even the simplest things had a glorious pointlessness to them. When buttons came in, about 1650, people couldn't get enough of them and arrayed them in decorative profusion on the backs and collars and sleeves of coats, where they didn't actually do anything. One relic of this is the short row of pointless buttons that are still placed on the underside of jacket sleeves near the cuff. These have been purely decorative and have never had a purpose, yet 350 years later on we continue to attach them as if they are the most earnest necessity.”
Bill Bryson

Will Advise
“Imagination is the ability to produce new ideas without the need of time to stop and actually think about it. I'll produce elevator buttons - I bought that business from Jarod Kintz, who was only selling it, because he found a new, more profitable job – male prostitution (he’s selling his grandpa’s services, not his own, because his own are virtually non-existent – he’s a monk now, and monks are sworn to celibacy, you know, or should, by now). Buy now - grieve later. Two 5th floor buttons for your floorless cardboard-built tree house, for the price of one, 7-story tall tree, which, for the purpose of this story we’ll call Nathan. Nathan sends you its best regards and wishes you a happy, silent, well-watered-down life, which, coming from a tree isn’t really that much, however, as you know - trees aren’t regular customers in the land of walking and talking, and it took quite a lot of convincing to make him come over and say that. Meow.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Austin Grossman
“None of the questions was what I expected. Most of them were esoteric thought experiments, 'How would you turn Pride and Prejudice into a video game?' and 'If you added a button to Pac-Man, what would you want it to do?' Conundrums like 'How come when Mario jumps he can change direction in midair?”
Austin Grossman, You

“Feeling the inevitable claim of the this desert, he experienced a desire to throw off his civilized costume, hurl himself upon Josephina, either succumb, or return to Guadalajara, where men could only complain of having too many buttons to button or unbutton...”
Warren Eyster, The Goblins of Eros

James Purdy
“Most people have their buttons,” Eustace continued.”
James Purdy, Eustace Chisholm and the Works: A Novel

“The internet has become a carefully controlled and heavily monitored illusion. It has turned into both a circus and battleground. Popularity is rigged and can be bought. Censorship is in full effect. Popular opinion is fabricated, and the perception of a viewpoint's popularity is typically orchestrated and manipulated by legions of paid trolls. If you want to know the truth about somebody's true popularity and influence, look to the streets. If you want to know if a person is really guilty or innocent, study the facts yourself. Never judge anybody based on what you see or read on the internet. Information can easily be manipulated by the push of a few buttons.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
