Laurell K. Hamilton, A Stroke of Midnight

“To be fair to Monica," I said, "what you did to her wasn't very nice either."
"What'd I do to her?" he asked, defensive.
"You know, going blind and everything."

Derek Landy
“Don’t kill me,” he sobbed as he lay there. “Oh God, please don’t kill me.”
“If you had let me finish,” Skulduggery said, slightly annoyed, “you would have heard me say, ‘Come out, we’re not
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 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

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
“Be nice wont you?" "I am nice, I'm always nice." "But not too nice. I mean don't make a religion out of it, niceness.”

Emily Brontë
“They DO live more in earnest, more in themselves, and less in surface, change, and frivolous external things. I could fancy a love for life here almost possible; and I was a fixed unbeliever in any love of a year's standing.”

“I put a basketball hoop in the trees, to help the squirrels and give them a nice net to store their nuts for the winter. But that’s just the kind of thoughtful guy I am.”

Jarod Kintz
“On his deathbed, my grandpa told me three things to remember for after he died. First he said, "You can't own a cat. Ever." Second he told me, "Friendly boys make friendly friends." Finally he said, "You were adopted, just like your father before you, and his father before him." "So," I said, "you were adopted?" "Of course not!" he replied. "Your father's not my son, just like he's not your father." And to this day I am still confused. I have no idea why I can't own a cat.”
Jarod Kintz

“boys, girls and music . . why do they need gin?”

Edith 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?”
Edith Piaf
