Suzanne Collins
“Peeta's awake already, sitting on the side of the bed, looking bewildered as the trio of doctors reassure him, flash lights in his eyes, checks his pules. I'm disappointed that mine was not the first face he saw when he woke up, but he sees it now. His features registrer disbelief and something more intense that I can't quite place. Desire? Desperation? Surely both, for he sweeps the doctors aside, leaps to his feets and moves towards me. I run to meet him, my arms extended to embrace him. His hands are reaching for mine too, to caress my face, I think.

My lips are forming his name when his fingers lock around my throat.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

ابن عربي
“دخلتً يوماً بقرطبةَ على قاضيها أبى الوليد بن رشد ، وكان يرغب فى لقائى لما سمع وبلغه ما فتح الله به علىَّ فى خلوتى ، فكان يُظهر التعجُّبَ مما سمع . فبعثنى والدى إليه فى حاجةٍ ، قصداً منه حتى يجتمع بى ، فإنَّه كان من أصدقائه ، وأنا (آنذاك) صبىٌّ ما بقل وجهى ولا طرَّ شاربى . فعندما دخلت عليه ، قام من مكانه إلىَّ محبَّةً وإعظاماً ، فعانقنى وقال لى : نعم ! قلت له : نعم ! فزاد فرحه بى لفهمى عنه ، ثم استشعرتُ بما أفرحه ، فقلت : لا ! فانقبض وتغير لونه وشك فيما عنده . وقال لى : كيف وجدتم الأمرَ فى الكشف والفيض الإلهى ، هل هو ما أعطاه لنا النظر ؟ قلت : نعم ولا ، وبين نعم ولا تطيرُ الأرواحُ من موادِّها والأعناق من أجسادها ! فاصفرَّ لونُه وأخذه الأفكل وقعد يحوقل وقال: هذه حالة أثبتناها وما رأينا لها أربابا.”
ابن عربي, الفتوحات المكية

It was not the matches that brought him across the street. It was the matches that kept him on the bench.”
