Erik Pevernagie
“Emotion is ‘recognition’. When treasured moments are identified in the jungle of our personal history during a visual or aural encounter, we capture magic sparks from our past, arousing flashes of insight and revealing an inner flare. These instants of recognition may kindle enthralling emotion and fulfilling inspiration. (“Those journeys of love”)”
Erik Pevernagie

“Each particular fragment of our inner world can keep on smoldering in the secrecy of our brain and one day emerge like crackling sparks. In the aftermath of mind absorbing coincidences, some essential elements of our being may have ebbed away from our memory. As they resurface after a thought-provoking encounter, they might plunge our existence into a new and estranging setting, transforming our life into a hallucinating journey. ("Knowing someone was waiting ")”
Erik Pevernagie

Kevin Hearne
“There are certain encounters that one knows will never be repeated so long as one lives. The firstborn child can't be born twice; one's virginity, once lost, can never be found again; the sheer awe one feels when laying hand on a giant sequoia cannot be rivaled. Other times escape our notice, slipping by while we are preoccupied, and we do not appreciate their enormity until it's too late to do anything but regret that we had not paid more attention in the present.
For me, the times I always regret are missed opportunities to say farewell to good people, to wish them long life and say to them in all sincerity, "You build and do not destroy; you sow goodwill and read it; smiles bloom in the wake of your passing, and I will keep your kindness in trust and share it as occasion arises, so that your life will be a quenching draught of clam in a land of drought and stress." Too often I never get to say that when it should be said. Instead, I leave them with the equivalent of a "Later, dude!" only to discover some time afterward that there would never be a later for us.”
Kevin Hearne, Hammered

Asheritah Ciuciu
“[referring to the paralytic in Luke 5:17-26] The man walks away with a lightness in his step and praise on his lips, for in one encounter with Jesus, he receives both the healing he wanted but didn't dare hope for and the forgiveness he desperately needed but didn't know to ask for. Jesus altered the course of his life, and he walked home no longer a slave to fear but loudly praising God.”

“How many times have we encountered a person that states, “can I ask a question,” and proceeds to ask the question before you can respond. In these cases, they have given us a choice and then take it away. What they are really doing here, is making a statement, and not asking you to decide.”
RJ Intindola – (Gandolfo) – 1979

Susie Orman Schnall
“Chance encounters - seeming coincidences of place and time - were fickle. Sometimes such encounters embodied a chemistry and mind of their own, resulting in relationships the were momentous. And sometimes those encounters had as much energy as a speck of inconsequential dust, meant to be overlooked and immediately forgotten.”
Susie Orman Schnall, We Came Here to Shine

Frédéric Gros
“Pleasure is a matter of encountering. It is a possibility of feeling that finds completion in an encounter with a body, element or substance. That is all there is to pleasure: agreeable sensations, sweet, unprecedented, deliciously unexpected, wild... It is always some sensation, and always triggered by an encounter, by something that confirms, from outside, the possibilities inscribed in our bodies. Pleasure is the encounter with the good object: the one that causes a possibility of feeling to blossom.”
Frédéric Gros, A Philosophy of Walking

“The chance encounters with strangers are not with your ‘Self’, but these are with the state you are in.”
Priyavrat Thareja

“Everything that you encounter in your life, you have two choices; to ride it out with positive spin or in a downward spiral. The choice is yours.”
Christine E. Szymanski

William Ritter
“He flashed a winning smile and I saw that he was missing a canine on one side. He caught my gaze and closed his lips self-consciously. "Never mind about that," he said.

His tongue brushed over the gap. "I ate something that disagreed with me."

"Eating something that disagreed with you dislodged a tooth?" I asked.”
William Ritter, Ghostly Echoes

“Our internal peace has the ability to encounter exponential growth in life.”
Purvi Raniga

“যতই শান্তিকামী হোক মনের ভেতরটা, মানুষ তবুও সংঘাত এড়াতে পারে না। সংঘাত এড়িয়ে সমাজের সাথে সুনিপুণ সংহতি বজায় রাখে এমন অনেকে আছে। শান্তির স্বার্থে অপরের আঘাত আক্রমণ হজম করে ফেলে বেমালুম- এরকম মানুষও অগণন। কিন্তু সমস্ত সংঘাত, সম্পর্কের আঘাত এড়িয়ে যে মানুষটা বাধ্য হয় নিজের সম্মুখে দাঁড়াতে, সে কি পারে নিজের সাথে নিজের সংঘাত এড়িয়ে যেতে? পারে না। এবং নিজের ওপরে নাজিল হবার আগেকার সমস্ত সংঘাত তাই এড়িয়ে যাবার যৌক্তিকতা থাকে না। সমস্ত সংঘাত পরাজয়ের ভয়, প্রতিহিংসার জয় কিংবা সম্ভাবনা সম্ভব না হয়ে যাওয়া থেকে সৃষ্টি হয় না। কিছু সংঘাত অপরিহার্য জীবনের গভীরতর অর্থ ও আকাঙ্ক্ষিত সত্য আবিষ্কারের জন্য।”
