Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes: Scientific Progress Goes "Boink"

Rainbow Rowell
“You think that holding someone hard will bring them closer. You think that you can hold them so hard that you'll still feel them, embossed on you, when you pull away.
Every time Eleanor pulled away from Park, she felt the gasping loss of him.”
Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

Jarod Kintz, Sleepwalking is restercise

Nora Roberts
“He gave her a quick, casual kiss on the cheek first. Then came the hug, and it was the hug that always made Laurel’s heart mush. Serious grip, cheek to the hair, eyes closed, just a little sway. Del’s hugs mattered, she thought, and made him impossible to resist.”
Nora Roberts, Savor the Moment

“If you're angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug - which is all the more reason to do so. It's hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that's precisely what happens when we hug each other.”
Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course: Seven Steps to Self-Fulfillment

John Flanagan
“There was a roar of delight from the forward bench, and then the bearlike figure of Nils Ropehander came lumbering down the deck, bellowing congratulations.
"What's that? The General? Engaged? Well General, here's my hand in congratulations!"
The expression here's my hand turned out to be a loose one. Nils scooped Horace up in a massive bear hug of delight. The hug, unlike the expression, was not a loose one. When he released Horace, the young groom-to-be crumpled, moaning breathlessly, to the deck.”
John Flanagan, The Emperor of Nihon-Ja

Criss Jami
“It is never ridicule, but a compliment, that knocks a philosopher off his feet. He is already positioned for every possible counter-attack, counter-argument, and retort...only to find a big bear hug coming his way.”
Criss Jami

Jarod Kintz
“Kissimmee has the best name, other than Hugsburg and Fornicatesville
Jarod Kintz, The Merits of Marthaism, and How Being Named Susan Can Benefit You

“However long a hug lasts, it doesn't last long enough.”
Kyle Schmalenberg

Patrick Carman
“In my view, there are many different kinds of hugs. There are the ones you give to huggers, people who hug all the time. These, to me, are by far the least special of all hugs. I see the outstretched arms for the third time in as many days-the expectation of an embrace- and I am drawn in by a feeling of good manners rather than sincere closeness. It's like shaking hands. There are also those I hug only once in a great while because I hardly ever see then, but who I don't necessarily feel that close to. Those kinds of hugs are probably the most awkward. I'm expected to hug so I do it, even if I'm not sure I want to. Hugs like these are brief, and I am always left wondering what sort of look the other person had on their face where I couldn't see. And then there are HUGS. Like the hugs my parents give me when I'm having a bad day, any sort of hug from Armon the giant, or a hug like the one with Yipes right now. Yipes and I are not apt to embrace each other unless there's a good reason to do it, but when there is a good reason, it's a hug that feels like it ought to.”
Patrick Carman, Stargazer

H.M. Ward
“When I met Millie, she was a hugger. She hugged over everything. I didn’t. We came to an agreement that hugs are reserved for prolonged partings and death. That’s it. At least, I thought that was our agreement. It seems like she’s figured out how to steal hugs more frequently. Millie’s turned into a hit and run hugger.”
H.M. Ward, Damaged

“Recycle kisses, hugs and smiles, they never go out of style and everybody needs one.”
Crystal DeLarm Clymer

M.F. Moonzajer
“We used to argue, fight and get angry, but we always ended our enmity with kisses and hugs.”
M.F. Moonzajer, A moment with God ; Poetry

“I never realized the warmth of his hug, until he was not around when I need it. 'Oh Dad! I miss you.”
Sajid Baig

Kyo Maclear
“You can make change or it can make YOU. Change is to keep us on our toes. Change is to make us look more closely. What doesn't change are the arms you use to hug with. Those stay the same.”
Kyo Maclear, Mr. Flux

“Be the first to hug and you will be the most to be the hugged”
Sajid Baig

Jarod Kintz
“You can’t transmit disease through hugs, but you can transfer warmth and warm feelings.
Jarod Kintz, Whenever You're Gone, I'm Here For You

Richelle E. Goodrich
“We forget that the sweetest joys are found in the simplest acts: hugs, laughter, quiet observation, basic movements, holding hands, pleasant music, shared stories, a listening ear, an unhurried visit, and selfless service. It is sad we forget a truth so elementary.”
Richelle E. Goodrich

Saurabh Sharma
“Sometimes, I present myself as an expert and talk non-sense. To be honest, passing out hugs is far better than passing judgements. TRY THIS!”
Saurabh Sharma

Dan Pearce
“Some moments can only be cured with a big squishy grandma hug.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Gayle Forman
“When we got back home, Gramps dropped me off and enveloped me in a hug. Normally, he was a handshaker, maybe a back-patter on really special occasions. His hug was strong and tight, and I knew it was his way of telling me that he'd had a wonderful time.

“Me, too, Gramps,” I whispered.”
Gayle Forman, If I Stay

Sandy Fussell
“A hug from a samurai girl is warmer than a heap of blankets and more meaningful than a pile of words.”
Sandy Fussell, Shaolin Tiger

Victoria Kahler
“Some hugs were awkward. One person’s arm headed over the other’s shoulder just as that person was mirroring the action. So it would almost look like a defensive karate move in slow motion.

Sometimes, a guy liked to hug around the waist and if the girl was shorter, he’d straighten a little and she’d end up on tip toe. This had always made her feel like a melon being weighed for juiciness. From the wrong man, from any man really, it was a creepy hug.

Other hugs were comfortable, a perfect synchronization of arms crisscrossing around one another’s backs, a full, warm, brief embrace that said "I care about you" but didn’t cross any weird lines.”
Victoria Kahler, Luisa Across the Bay

Haruki Murakami
“- Wiesz, Tsukuru – głos Eri wydobywał się spomiędzy jej palców. - Mam do ciebie prośbę.
- Jaką?
- Czy mógłbyś mnie przytulić?
Tsukuru pomógł jej wstać i objął ją. Dwie duże piersi przylgnęły do niego jak jakiś dowód. Na plecach czuł ciepło jej dłoni. Miękki, mokry policzek dotknął jej szyi.
- Myślę, że już nigdy nie będę mogła wrócić do Japonii – wyszeptała. Jej ciepły, wilgotny oddech musnął jego ucho. - Bo wszystko by mi przypominało Yuzu. I nasze...
Tsukuru nic nie powiedział, tylko mocniej ją objął.
Stali tak objęci, prawdopodobnie widoczni przez otwarte okno. Ktoś mógł tamtędy przechodzić. Edvard z dziećmi mógł w każdej chwili wrócić. Ale takie rzeczy nie miały znaczenia. Niech ludzie sobie myślą, co chcą. Musieli się tu teraz obejmować ze wszystkich sił. Musieli się zbliżyć i razem odegnać długi cień złego ducha. Prawdopodobnie Tsukuru po to tu przyjechał.
Bardzo długo – ile to mogło trwać? - stali tak blisko siebie. Biała firanka nadal nieregularnie kołysała się na wietrze, policzki Eri nadal były mokre, a Alfred Brendel nadal grał utwory z "Roku drugiego. Włochy: Sonet Petrarki nr 47" i "Sonet Petrarki nr 104". Tsukuru dokładnie je wszystkie pamiętał. Mógłby je zanucić z pamięci. Po raz pierwszy zdał sobie sprawę, jak głęboko wsłuchiwał się w nie sercem.
Nic więcej nie mówili. Słowa nie miały mocy. Jak tancerze, którzy przestali się poruszać, stali tylko cicho objęci, poddając się nurtowi czasu. Był to czas, w którym mieszały się przeszłość, teraźniejszość i prawdopodobnie także trochę przyszłości. Między ich ciałami nie było luk, jej ciepły oddech w regularnych odstępach owiewał jej szyję. Tsukuru zamknął oczy i poddając się brzmieniu muzyki, wsłuchiwał się w odgłos bicia serca Eri, który nakładał się na stukot małej łódki uderzającej o pomost.”
Haruki Murakami, 色彩を持たない多崎つくると、彼の巡礼の年
