William Goldman
“I've been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn't listen. Every time you said 'Farm Boy do this' you thought I was answering 'As you wish' but that's only because you were hearing wrong. 'I love you' was what it was, but you never heard.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Erik Pevernagie

“We might not be able to know what reality is about, but we can’t but be aware of the explicitness of facts. To get a better grip on the intricate nature of the truth and its ambiguity, we have got to scrutinize facts and find out about their codes. But, yet, we can’t ignore that reality is a very intriguing place, since facts may be construed, receive variant contexts and create alternate outcomes, which, in turn, might spark new realities, over again. ("Imbroglio" )”
Erik Pevernagie

This dialectical situation may keep them struggling during their entire life. ("The unbreakable code " )”
Erik Pevernagie

“But Susan's thoughts were far removed from the political implications of Digital Fortress. She was still struggling to comprehend its existence. She'd spent her life breaking codes, firmly denying the existence of the ultimate code. Every code is breakable - the Bergofsky Principle! She felt like an atheist coming face to face with God.”
Dan Brown, Digital Fortress

Lemony Snicket
“A letter may be coded, and a word may be coded. A theatrical performance may be coded, and a sonnet may be coded, and there are times when it seems the entire world is in code.

Lemony Snicket, The Complete Wreck

Deyth Banger
“To find why that happen and why this is happening, you should start from the beginning the problem comes from the beginning go and remove the bug, fix the problem and try again to see what will happen...

Deyth Banger

Christina Engela, Demonspawn

“It never meant anything, Moses says. Not to the god above it and not to the earth below it. It never did. Not even when they first did it. But it’s the doin it that counts. It’s something. You draw imaginary lines. That’s what you do.
The Vestal looks at him kindly, a smile on her lips that seems affectionate--even maybe admiring.
Then what do you do with the lines? she asks.
And Moses looks at her straight and true. He says:
Then you pick one side or the other and you stand there.”
Alden Bell, Exit Kingdom

Deyth Banger

Garth Greenwell
“[L]ike poems, cruising carves privacy out of public spaces. Poems are a kind of private communication that occurs in public speech. And I think cruising is that too: a training in reading occult codes; a way of seeing a significance in the world that most people don’t see.”
Garth Greenwell

Tom Pollock
“A Caesar shift is about the simplest code in the world – perfect for the Roman emperor who’s long on secrets but short on time.
To make one, you just write out the alphabet, A to Z, then pick a secret phrase… and write it out underneath the first few letters of your alphabet, dropping any repeated letters…
Pg 27”

Jose R. Coronado, The Land Flowing With Milk And Honey

F.J. Bowman
“After 55 years at the bar and a career as a law professor it may seem strange that I wouild write a novel. But the opportunity to spin a tale about hidden treasure, secret codes, midlife love, a life-saving dog and a thrilling chase through West Virginia was just too tempting. The Secet of the 48th Foot was too much fun not to give it a whirl.”
F.J. Bowman, The Secret of the 48th Foot

Ashim Shanker
“There are underwater cables that seem to emerge and interweave the various objects drifting and rotating in space. I can imagine their intersections and junction points and synapses ~ the remote hosts out in the fringes. The control stations on terrain that re-route incoming impulses. A flood of light information is passing between domains, all of it insulated within these submerged cables unseen to those on the surface. There is something unsettling about this. Even the sharks seem to steer clear of the cables as though in instinctual protest to the coded impulses passing throughout and beyond, evading the frequencies that comprehensively register and reflexively influence all conceptualization, inclination, and movement.”
Ashim Shanker, trenches parallax leapfrog

“I circled a few misspelled words, then handed it back to Theo.
“Do these words mean anything to you?”
“Nights. Reed. Hour. Male.” His eyes widened as he spoke the words aloud. “The knights read their mail? Which knights? Why?”
“Crap,” I muttered. “Someone with influence over your mail doesn’t want you to know whatever’s going on in Margen.”
C. Rae D'Arc, Don't Marry the Cursed
