Elisabeth Elliot

“Look, we need to make time, but we also need to be somewhat quiet."
She faced him. "I am being quiet!"

Michele Jaffe
“Are you wearing space pants?" Miranda asked him.
How did it end? oh, right. "Because your butt is fine."
He gazed at her in that way he had like he was measuring her for straitjacket. "I think-" he started, then stopped and seemed to be having trouble talking. Cleared his throat three times before saying, "I think the line is 'because your butt is out of this world."
"Oh. That makes a lot more sense. I can see that. See, I read this book about how to get guys to like you and they said it was a line that never failed but i got interrupted in the middle and the line before it was about china-not the country, the kind you eat off of-and that is where the fine part was but i must have gotten them confused. He just kept staring at her.”
Michele Jaffe, Prom Nights from Hell

Galt Niederhoffer, The Romantics

Aniruddha Sastikar
“There's a thin line between an uncertain 'Yes' and a certain 'No' known as 'lame indecisiveness'.”
Aniruddha Sastikar


When you crave the answer to any divine question,
And are prepared to abandon yourself
To Truth and Time to know it,
You must first train yourself to distinguish
All that is untrue to get to Truth,
And to do so,
Learn to interpret every word and line
With the heart and mind of
A poet.

The language of Light
Can only be decoded by the heart,
And it has a very luminous
Mind and eye of its own.
However, if there is no truth in you,
You will not be able to see or recognize Truth,
So to you, nothing true will ever be

So learn to use your heart to recognize Truth
By dissecting it with the brightest light
As it was intended to be shone.
This is the only way,
The right way of Truth,
And the only way it
Will ever be
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Israelmore Ayivor

Rebecca McNutt
“She shakily rushed towards the car to find Alecto casually standing beside it, smoking a cigarette and staring fixedly on the radio as it played the song 'Draggin’ the Line' by Tommy James, his expression thoughtful. “What are you thinking about?” Mandy questioned.

“Wouldn’t the world be a very loud place to live if we said everything we thought?” Alecto asked quietly.”
Rebecca McNutt, Smog City

David Finkel
“It's a thin line between what we're calling acceptable and not acceptable. As a leader, you're supposed to know when not to cross it. But how do you know? Does the army teach us how to control our emotions? Does the army teach us how to deal with a friend bleeding out in front of you? No.”
David Finkel, The Good Soldiers

Jarod Kintz
“I was standing in a slow checkout line at the grocery store, and a woman with a daughter in front of me struck up a conversation. About two minutes in, she mentioned that her daughter just turned eighteen. “Oh my God!” I said. “Have you been waiting in this line her whole life?”
Jarod Kintz, If you bring the booze and food, I'll bring the thirst and hunger

Robert Henri
“Lines are results, do not draw them for themselves. ... Lines give birth to lines. Drawing is not following a line on the model, it is drawing your sense of the thing. ... Make a drawing flow, stopping sometimes, and going on. ... Search for the simple constructive forces, line the lines of a suspension bridge. Get the few main lines and see what lines they call out. ... Have purpose in the places where lines stop.”
Robert Henri

Robert Henri

Bernard-Marie Koltès
“Porque, não importa o que diga, a linha sobre a qual caminhava, de recta que talvez fosse, tinha passado a curva desde que me viu, e eu apercebi-me do momento exacto em que me viu pelo momento exacto em que o seu caminho se tornou curvo, e não uma curva que o afastasse de mim, mas uma curva para vir ter comigo, senão nunca nos teríamos encontrado, mas teria antes afastado ainda mais de mim, porque você estava à andar à velocidade de alguém que caminha de um ponto para outro; e eu nunca o teria apanhado porque eu só caminho lentamente, calmamente, quase imóvel, com o passo de alguém que não vai de um ponto para o outro mas que, num lugar imutável, espreita quem passa à sua frente e espera que modifique ligeiramente o seu percurso. E se eu digo que fez uma curva, e como sem dúvida há-de dizer que era um desvio para me evitar, ao que eu afirmarei, em resposta, que foi um movimento para se aproximar, sem dúvida que isso é assim porque no fim de contas você não se desviou, que qualquer linha recta só existe em relação a um plano, que nós nos movemos segundo dois planos distintos, e que no fim de contas só existe o facto que você olhou para mim e que eu interceptei esse olhar ou o inverso, e que, à partida, de absoluta que era, a linha segundo a qual você se movia tornou-se relativa e complexa, nem recta nem curva, mas fatal.”
Bernard-Marie Koltès, Dans la solitude des champs de coton

Will Advise
“Everything is like a wall.
Said a scholar to the troll.
Bang your head to go on through.
Then you'll see, there is no queue.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Israelmore Ayivor
“You may hit the bar, you may cross the forbidden line, you may cause many fouls, but when you stay on, you will definitely get your goals being the winning goals...”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Kristen Henderson
“If in poetry court she was called
to testify on matters where
I was condemned to imprisonment: parking my ego
at a broken meter, line violations, forced rhyme,
dealing stanzaics to children, shooting
off my mouth, getting cute, for even this
latest attempt at verse, she would tell the whole truth,
she would admit from the pit
of her unsung brilliance,
from all of the paintings and poems
she herself has been making
and storing in the vast empire of her
singing soul, your Honor, my daughter is guilty
of plagiarizing my cells.”
Kristen Henderson, Drum Machine

M.F. Moonzajer
“Ethnic conflict is a line between religion and stupidity.”

“A line is like a role model, It contributes in straightening our focus.”

Damon Galgut
“All of them would understand, as he did now, that he had crossed a line in himself, he had left their world behind, the decent world of tea parties and suburban witticisms.”
Damon Galgut, Arctic Summer

“Whatever I ‘align’’ myself with are the very things that will create a ‘line’ into my future.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough, An Intimate Collision: Encounters with Life and Jesus

Israelmore Ayivor
“The line you tow is a sign that all will be fine!”
