“Don't look now, but that's my ex over there."
Surely I'm not the only one who takes "don't look now" as "there's no better time than now." I looked.
"Bad, Ali!" Another slap to my arm. "Bad, bad, bad Ali! Have you no self control?”
Gena Showalter, Alice in Zombieland

But it has no soul.”

Richard Adams
“Human beings say, "It never rains but it pours." This is not very apt, for it frequently does rain without pouring. The rabbits' proverb is better expressed. They say, "One cloud feels lonely": and indeed it is true that the sky will soon be overcast.”
Richard Adams, Watership Down

John Updike
“…he is unlike the other customers. They sense it too, and look at him with hard eyes, eyes like little metal studs pinned into the white faces of young men [...] In the hush his entrance creates, the excessive courtesy the weary woman behind the counter shows him amplifies his strangeness. He orders coffee quietly and studies the rim of the cup to steady the sliding in his stomach. He had thought, he had read, that from shore to shore all America was the same. He wonders, Is it just these people I’m outside or is it all America?”
John Updike, Rabbit, Run

Laini Taylor
“I want to be the guy in a movie who's, I don't know, out walking his rabbit on a leash (I don't have a rabbit) and knows exactly how to strike up a quirky, compelling conversation. Though maybe if you're walking a rabbit on a leash, you don't even have to speak; the rabbit does the work for you. Not that Zuzana seems like the rabbity type. Maybe if I were walking a fox on a leash. Or a hyena. Yeah, if I had a hyena, I'd probably never have to start a conversation again.

Except for, "Sorry my hyena ate your leg.”
Laini Taylor, Night of Cake & Puppets

H.M. Ward
“Those guards are going to be all sorts of pissed when they find out they've been following a bunny rabbit.”
H.M. Ward, Catalyst

Jarod Kintz
“Inside my skull is a turtle shell. Inside the turtle shell is a rabbit. And inside the rabbit, all my tasty thoughts constantly stew.”
Jarod Kintz, At even one penny, this book would be overpriced. In fact, free is too expensive, because you'd still waste time by reading it.

A.A. Milne
“Owl," said Rabbit shortly, "you and I have brains. The others have fluff. If there is any thinking to be done in this Forest--and when I say thinking I mean thinking--you and I must do it.”
A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner

“Slow and steady wins the race, only and only if the rabbit, competent, sleeps a while. But, fast and consistency always win it, even if rabbit is awaken.”
Syed Ather

J.E. Fison
“I'm scanning the sky for doo-doo missiles, when there's a bloodcurdling scream. An ugly thing with a human body, ears like a rabbit and a face so grotesque it would make gladiators wet their pants leaps off the roof of the houseboat. It lands right in front of me.”
J.E. Fison, Snake Surprise!

Jarod Kintz
“Love is like a rabbit riding a turtle like a chariot. But that’s cool with me, because I know where it’s going, and I just took a taxi.”
Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. And the ageless sages.

Jarod Kintz
“I love like a turtle takes a shower. Slowly, and with an audience of paying rabbits there to cheer encouragement.”
Jarod Kintz, My love can only occupy one person at a time

Jarod Kintz
“If love had the texture of a turtle, and the taste of a rabbit, would you say we’re moving too fast in our relationship?”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

Joan Sales
“La nora encengué un foc de llenya i un cop fet força caliu hi va posar algunes lloses de pissarra -de llicorella, deien ells- després d'untar-les d'oli copisament. Un cop roents hi estengué els conills espellats i espaterrats, ben espolsats de sal. Jo em mirava tot allò com si estigués veient els preparatius d'un dinar de l'època paleolítica, de l'autèntica Edat de Pedra! Amb l'allioli que mentre els conills es rostien havia fet el vell -en un gran morter també de pedra-, no recordo haver menjat cosa més rica en tots els dies de la meva vida.”
Joan Sales

Evangeline Walton
“It was so awful! And he kept on looking at me and I knew I must get out of bed or he'd come and touch me. I did, too, but when I got out I wasn't me-I was a little white bunny. And he started out of the room and I had to go with him for fear he'd touch me. It felt so horrid, going out with him and looking back at mother there asleep.

"We went into the main part of the house, and one of the big front doors was open, and we went out through it. And then he gave a big jump, and so did I, and it took us clear up into the sky. We couldn't fly, but we kept jumping and jumping.

"Sometimes we stayed in the sky a little while, jumping from cloud to cloud, and the moon would get closer and closer and bigger and bigger, and its face would change and get horrible and grin at us until it seemed like its mouth was a mile wide and open, to swallow us up. And then we'd come down again and jump from one cliff to another, and the sea would be roaring down under us, and the waves all grey and cold and moving around and boiling like they were mad or afraid.

"We went all over the island and sometimes we jumped over the sea to the mainland and back again; and sometimes I tried to get away and run back to Mother - I thought she'd know me even if I was a bunny - but always, whichever way I turned, the hare was there in front of me, and his teeth were shining.

"We kept it up all night, and I was so tired and cold and miserable, and so scared. I didn't know whether he would ever let me go home or whether he would take me to Aunt Sarai. Then finally I did get away and the hare chased me!"

She broke off, her voice rising again to a wail.

"It was so awful! I ran all over the island, into all sorts of queer little places that I never knew were there before - it seems so different after dark - and finally, when two or three times I'd been so tired that I thought I just couldn't go any farther, before he caught me, I saw the house in front of me and the front door still open and I started to run in, and then I thought - what if they'd planned it that way, and Aunt Sarai had come down from her portrait and was inside there in the dark, waiting for me?”
Evangeline Walton, Witch House

“I’ve finally given in, my eyes are shut under the blindfold. I can hear and smell, but I cannot see. My hands are clammy I feel cold yet I am warm. It is what I wanted, but I am now unsure, dubious yet at the same time excited and curious. I would like to think I feel a bit like Alice just before she fell down the hole into the rabbit hole. Yet there are no rabbits here… not even those of the rampant persuasion.”

“Because anticipate rather than search the bushes. (Car plutôt anticiper - Que les fourrés rechercher.)

(The Rabbit and the Hedgehog / Le Lapin et le Hérisson)”
Charles de Leusse, Fables 1

“Self-help and those stupid proverbs, they do nothing. Soul food? It’s like trying to cure starvation with a sugar cube. It might taste sweet on the lips but once it dissolves, the emptiness is still there.”
C.SeanMcGee, Dark Side of the Moon

Daryl Gregory
“The rabbit is already in the hat. Do not clap for fucking Tinkerbell. Believe nothing.”
