Suzanne Collins
“Beware, Underlanders, time hangs by a thread.
The hunters are hunted, white water runs red.
The Gnawers will strike to extinguish the rest.
The hope of the hopeless resides in a quest.

An Overland warrior, a son of the sun,
May bring us back light, he may bring us back none.
But gather your neighbors and follow his call
Or rats will most surely devour us all.

Two over, two under, of royal descent,
Two flyers, two crawlers, two spinners assent.
One gnawer beside and one lost up ahead.
And eight will be left when we count up the dead.

The last who will die must decide where he stands.
The fate of the eight is contained in his hands.
So bid him take care, bid him look where he leaps,
As life may be death and death life again reaps.”
Suzanne Collins, Gregor the Overlander

Antony John
“COOL·NESS [KOOL-NIS] -noun
CATCHING your mom gazing at the crazy crowd like she finally gets it
WATCHING your dad head-banging like he’s Finn’s twin brother
LEARNING that your new friends Tash and Kallie are a thousand times more complicated than you realized, and loving them for it
FEELING every one of your boyfriend’s pounding drumbeats, and thinking it’s the most romantic music ever written
REALIZING you’re completely unique . . . even in a crowd”
Antony John, Five Flavors of Dumb

Melissa Etheridge

“A person who is truly cool is a work of art. And remember, original works of art cost exponentially higher than imitations. Just take a look at the the coolest people in history. They will always be a part of history for being extremely original individuals, not imitations.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

John Green

“Evidently, I'd suffered an epiphany: the subconscious realization that when it comes to coolness, nothing the human race has ever invented is more cool than a book.”
Tom Robbins, Tibetan Peach Pie: A True Account of an Imaginative Life

David Foster Wallace
“Trying to be anti-cool is just one exponent off trying to be cool -- it's the same beast.”
David Foster Wallace

Criss Jami
“Angels are good not simply because they see bad as bad, but also because they see bad as corny.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“The defining characteristic of a hipster—the thing everyone agreed on, and most hated about them—wasn't so much their taste, but their contempt and condescension toward those less cool than themselves.”
Mara Wilson, Where Am I Now?

Criss Jami
“Fashion is simply a guideline for style-less people to appear stylish.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Jim Butcher
“I took a moment to study the wards. They were a smooth patchwork of enchantment, probably the result of several lesser talents working together. Somebody like me can put up a ward that is like a huge iron wall. This was more like a curtain of tightly interwoven steel rings. For most purposes, both would serve fairly well -- but with the right tool, the latter kind of wall is easily dealt with.

"And I'm the tool," I muttered. Then I thought about it, sighed, and shook my head. "One day," I told myself, "one brave and magnificent day, I will actually be cool.”
Jim Butcher, Cold Days

“ellory erecius is very cool!!!2”
John Mills

Rick Riordan
“We can't arrange gods by coolness. That would lead to too many fights.”
Rick Riordan, The Burning Maze

“I know what I want to hear. I want to hear the "Believe it or Not" song. I want to play that shit loud. Really belt out the "Should have been somebody eeeeeelse" part, with a little bit of Zack de la Rocha venom. That would be pretty awesome right about now.

But the other part of me, the part that wanted to be cool, knew that it was a much better idea to say, "Let's play the fucking Misfits." Because that's what you say to the cool guy in the combat boots who wants to smoke in your house. Because he's going to snarl-smile at you and say, "Fuck yeah!" And you're feel cool by association.

"Let's play the fucking Misfits," I said.

John snarl-smiled and saluted me with rock horns. "Fuck yeah."

Told you.”
Eric Spitznagel, Old Records Never Die: One Man's Quest for His Vinyl and His Past

“Cats speak the language of comfort and coolness and therefore we feel comfortable and cool whenever we see a cat!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Criss Jami
“I do not recall our Lord ever saying one could not be 'cool'. It is only a problem if one esteems 'coolness' above that which is righteous and true, which is, when we give it its way, really what many of us do. 'Coolness' is too transient to be of any real and meaningful, lasting significance, and it is often in great conflict with one being one's most honest, most vulnerable self. That, and in reality, some of the coolest people are actually those who least concern themselves with being cool anyway, those who make 'trying to be cool' less evident.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Chaim Potok
“It was a large store and i did not like to go in it because its brightness was cold, like sunlight on distant ice.”
Chaim Potok, My Name Is Asher Lev

Ana Claudia Antunes
“I don´t listen to hoax or rumours,
but I like a good sense of humour.
If you are wrong, be wise, apologize. Otherwise, be kind and rewind.
Gone with the wind...”
Ana Claudia Antunes, A-Z of Happiness: Tips for Living and Breaking Through the Chain that Separates You from Getting That Dream Job

Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
“My sisters and I stand on the deck, the shale tile cool against the soles of our feet - for a week it seems we never have to wear shoes - and take turns twirling, the matching turquoise silk skirts my mother bought us sliding coolly up our legs, our laughter flying out over the ocean. We are all light and happy and far, far away from home.”
Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir

Russell Simmons
“The beautiful thing about meditation is that it allows you to access that cool guy or girl inside of you that's waiting to come out. You'll be able to access the part of you that people like to be around. The part of you that feels upbeat about things. That feels like you're moving toward your goals without frustration and anxiety. That feels ecstatic to be alive! The more I meditate, the more I have these moments.”
Russell Simmons, Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple

John Butler
“Well you, young man, need to learn about what is much more important than cool. And that is: what is beautiful.”
John Butler

Dan Born
“Confidence and self-assuredness is like an invisible magnet. When you have it, others are drawn to you as confidence equals coolness. When you don't have it, the magnet flips and repels people. A man who isn't confident is hiding something.”
Dan Born, Finally Understanding Carnal Knowledge

“Welcome to the new age. The greatest age in history. The Technology Age.”
