“As for you girls, you must risk everything for Freedom, and give everything for Passion, loving everything that your hearts and your bodies love.

Roman Payne

“Don’t kill me,” he sobbed as he lay there. “Oh God, please don’t kill me.”

going to hurt you’. Idiot.”
“He probably wouldn’t have said idiot,” Valkyrie told the sobbing man. “We’re trying our best to be nice.”

Sarah Dessen
“Despite my dad's assurances I was strangely nervous my stomach tight ever since we'd hung up. Maybe Deb had picked up on this and it was why she'd pretty much talked nonstop since I'd approached her and asked for a ride. I'd barely had time to explain the situation before she had launched into a dozen stories to illustrate the point that Things Happened But People Were Okay in the End.”
Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye

David Nicholls

Sarah Vowell
“Once, headed uptown on the 9 train, I noticed a sign posted by the Metropolitan Transit Authority advising subway riders who might become ill in the train. The sign asked that the suddenly infirm inform another passenger or get out at the next stop and approach the stationmaster. Do not, repeat, do not pull the emergency brake, the sign said, as this will only delay aid. Which was all very logical, but for the following proclamation at the bottom of the sign, something along the lines of, “If you are sick, you will not be left alone.” This strikes me as not only kind, not only comforting, but the very epitome of civilization, good government, i.e., the the crux of the societal impulse. Banding together, pooling our taxes, not just making trains, not just making trains that move underground, not just making trains that move underground with surprising efficiency at a fair price—but posting on said trains a notification of such surprising compassion and thoughtfulness. I found myself scanning the faces of my fellow passengers, hoping for fainting, obvious fevers, at the very least a sneeze so that I might offer a tissue.”
Sarah Vowell

Emily Brontë

Emily Brontë

Type a word or two.
Arrow left, arrow right,
Keep those fingers nice and tight.
Keys up, Keys down,
Move those digits all around.
One two, one two,
Type a word or two.”
Jazz Feylynn

Criss Jami
“The conscious attempt to be a good person without Christ is as legalistic as an attempt to make it into Heaven through empty religiosity.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Édith Piaf
“Случи ми се и още нещо, много забавно. Някакъв си парижки тип ми изпрати поздравления в голям плик. Понеже нямал точния ми адрес, той написал: "Едит Пиаф в Съединените щати". Момчетата от пощата добавили върху плика: "Парижките пощаджии ви целуват." Можеш да си представиш колко е препускало по следите ми това писмо, докато ме намери! Навсякъде, откъдето е минавало, пощенските служители написвали по нещо - "И ние също!" А тия от Чикаго - "Ние ви обичаме!" В Лос Анджелес допълнили: "И ние заедно с другите!" Когато получих писмото, на него нямаше неизписано местенце. В пощата навярно са се страхували да не се загуби, затова един раздавач лично ми го донесе. Вместо да почука на вратата, той изсвири с уста "Животът в розово". Не е ли красиво всичко това?”
Édith Piaf
