Tess Gerritsen, The Surgeon

Neil Gaiman
“I took the dog out for a walk tonight, and together we wandered across the meadow next door. It was a warm summer's night, dark, and moonless. There were a handful of fireflies flickering intermittently, some so close to me I could see they were burning green as they flew, and some further away, who seemed to be flashing white.

And in the sky above them a continual roil of distant summer lightning (the storm distant enough that it was silent) burned and flashed and illuminated the clouds. It seemed as if the lightning bugs were talking to the lightning, in a perfect call and response of flash and counterflash. I watched the sky and the meadow flash and flash while the dog walked ahead of me, and realised that I was perfectly happy...”
Neil Gaiman

Richelle E. Goodrich
“I hate it when storm clouds roll in, heralded by dazzling claps of thunder and lightning that boast an ocean of tears. This majestic performance of bad temper manages to overshadow my pathetic attempts at pouting. No one broods like Mother Nature, hence she steals all the attention I was sulking after.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year


Bolts of lightning from the sky
And plant them in fields of life.

They will grow like tender sprouts of fire.
Charge somber thoughts
With unexpected flash,
You, my lightning in the soil!”
Visar Zhiti, The Condemned Apple: Selected Poetry

Robert Benchley
“As the storm came nearer I began to realize that I hadn't made the most of my three years' immunity. In fact, I hadn't done a single thing about cleaning up my life. I was, if anything, an even more logical target for lightning than the last time I was in range. And thunderstorms don't creep up on you at seven o'clock in the morning in a non-thunderstorm country for nothing, you know. I lined up a rather panicky schedule of reforms...
But as the storm suddenly petered out and went off in the other direction nothing much has come out of it yet. I may have three years more, and these things can't be rushed.”
Robert Benchley, My Ten Years in a Quandary and How They Grew

Jarod Kintz
“I had a dream about you. You wanted to take a bath, and I wanted to take a shower. It started raining so we went in the lake so we could both win. Then you got struck by lightning, so I had to make love to someone else that night. I was very sad.
Jarod Kintz, We Had A #Dream About You

“It's not a question of can or can't. There are some things in life you just do.”

Jarod Kintz
“Getting struck by lightning is like winning the lottery, except of course, not as lucky.”
Jarod Kintz, Seriously delirious, but not at all serious

“The forest has shrunk
And fear has expanded,
The forests have dwindled,
There are less animals now,
less courage and less lightning,
less beauty
and the moon lies bare,
deflowered by force and
then abandoned.”
Visar Zhiti, The Condemned Apple: Selected Poetry

Jarod Kintz
“Love, like lightning, can strike anytime. That’s why I say tinfoil is not just for leftovers—it’s for channeling romance into your life.”

آيه فوزي
بينما كان الظلام يسود عالمي .. ليل.. طريق مظلم.. إذا بوميض باهر يكاد يصيبني بالعمى .. إحتارت ظنونى عن ماهية هذا الوميض أهو نجم هبط من السماء؟ أم ملاك حارس جاء لإغاثتي . تبين لى بالأدلة الدامغة .. من موقع الحدث .. أنها الكشافات الأمامية لسيارة قلب أحدهم تنبهني أنها على وشك الاصطدام .”
آيه فوزي

Roberto Bolaño
“Escolhia A Metamorfose em vez de o Processo, escolha Bartleby em vez de Moby Dick, escolhia Um Coração Simples em vez de Bouvard e Pécuchet, e Um Conto de Natal em vez de Um conto de duas cidades ou de As aventuras do sr. Picwick. Que triste paradoxo, pensou Amalfitano. Nem mais os farmacêuticos ilustrados se atrevem a grandes obras, imperfeitas, torrenciais, as que abrem caminhos no desconhecido. Escolhem os exercícios perfeitos dos grandes mestres. Ou o que dá na mesma: querem ver os grandes mestres em sessões de treino de esgrima, mas não querem saber dos combates de verdade, nos quais os grandes mestres lutam contra aquilo, esse aquilo que atemoriza a todos nós, esses aquilo que acovarda e põe na defensiva, e há sangue e ferimentos mortais e fetidez.”
Roberto Bolaño

Sambhav Ratnakar
“Before that point, I’d always been scared of lightning. There was something terrifying about sudden electricity sparks flowing in the sky, but it didn’t matter after that point. Perhaps I had better things to worry about.”
Sambhav Ratnakar, The Covert Perspective
