“There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people and those who don't.”
Ann Brashares, The Second Summer of the Sisterhood

Ann Patchett
“There was no time for kissing but she wanted him to know that in the future there would be. A kiss in so much loneliness was like a hand pulling you up out of the water, scooping you up from a place of drowning and into the reckless abundance of air. A kiss, another kiss.”
Ann Patchett, Bel Canto

Jennifer Estep
“Can you play the piano like Beethoven? Or sing like Carly Simon? Can you take fie pages' worth of quotes and turn them into a usable story ten minutes before deadline? I don't think so, unless you have more hidden talents I don't know about. We all have our special sills. They don't make us better or worse than each other. Just different”
Jennifer Estep, Karma Girl

Georges Bizet

Prosper Mérimée
“Carmen will always be free.”
Prosper Mérimée, Carmen

Jessica Martinez
“He probably hadn't written it. I knew that. I certainly hadn't written mine. But after yesterday, his pompous sneer was permanently imprinted on my brain, and I could just picture him sitting at a computer and stringing together sentences like, "His golden tone and tender touch have moved audiences across the continent to tears." I was half-surprised it didn't claim his vibrato could cure cancer.”
Jessica Martinez, Virtuosity

“Lena always described how she dreaded and mourned things before they even happened. Carmen was beginning to suspect that she was permitting herself to mourn this long separation only now that it was over.”
Ann Brashares, Sisterhood Everlasting

“Carmen stood at the altar wearing a hand-beaded, curve hugging, ivory silk and chiffon gown that fit so perfectly, it looked as if it had been sewn on her. The fact that one of the breasts beneath the silken fabric was not her flesh but a form made of gel didn't detract from the gorgeousness of Carmen the slightest bit.”
Kathleen Cross, Schooling Carmen

Solange nicole
“Even as she walks through the door she can feel the eyes of the dark figure in the corner.”
Solange nicole, My Beloved Tourniquet

“Carmen kicked at the dirt. She couldn't equate finding the virus at home with good luck. It was powerful, this thing, ruthless, a perfectly honed survivor for who knew how many millennia. Perhaps it was old as life itself, a malevolent offshoot of the first sampling of creation. Yet Leigh and Daintith thought they could track it to its lair and swat it like some bothersome insect.”

“Carmen saves the young child and is rewarded with a look of gratitude. His smile turns into a puzzle as he no longer hold the little girl, but his dark haired goddess”
Solange nicole, My Beloved Tourniquet

“Wait a minute George. You don't mean you broke in?"
"No, not exactly. Well . . . is this line secure?"
"Absolutely."
"Then yes.”
Patrick Lynch, Carriers

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Yesterday I heard—would you believe it?—Bizet's masterpiece, for the twentieth time. Again I stayed there with tender devotion, again I did not run away. This triumph over my impatience surprises me. How such a work makes one perfect! One becomes a "masterpiece" oneself.— And really, every time I heard Carmen I seemed to myself more of a philosopher, a better philosopher, than I generally consider myself: so patient do I become, so happy, so Indian, so settled ... To sit five hours: the first stage of holiness!— May I say that the tone of Bizet's orchestra is almost the only one I can still endure?”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Ann Patchett
“He could see in his face a love so obviously displayed that she must already know everything there was to know about it. He was so close to her then that they owned every molecule of air in the tiny room and the air grew heavy with their desire and worked to move them together. It was with the smallest step forward that his face was in her hair and then her arms were around his back and they were holding each other. It seemed so simple to get to this place, such a magnificent relief, that he couldn't imagine why he had not been holding her every minute since they first met.”
Ann Patchett, Bel Canto

Prosper Mérimée
“Yes, I'll follow you, even to death - but I won't live with you any more.”
Prosper Mérimée, Carmen

Prosper Mérimée
“I don't love you any more. You love me still, and that is why you want to kill me.”
Prosper Mérimée, Carmen

Mia  Knight
“Lyla felt his body go rigid a moment before his fist flashed out. Blade deflected Gavin’s punch before it connected with Carmen’s face. The air around them went electric as Gavin went apeshit and launched himself at Carmen. Guards went flying and blood sprayed the luxurious carpet as Gavin’s security team tried to restrain him. Flight attendants screamed and ran off the jet. Lyla caught a glimpse of Gavin's face, contorted with blind rage. It made her hands clammy with fear. It took nearly ten minutes for his men to pin him down.”
Mia Knight, Recaptured by the Crime Lord
