Simon slid down in his seat. "Please don't tell anyone I know him."

Clary giggled. "Who uses the word 'loins'?"

"You bet it does," Clary said.”

“It was Eric's voice not Simon's, on the recorded message. “Ladies, ladies ” he said. Though it was the millionth time she’d heard the recording, Clary couldn't help rolling her eyes. “If you've reached this message that means our boy Simon is out partying.

“That better not be what I think it is," Joe mumbled in the dark.
It was. "It's not. Jeez, woman, someone's paranoid. It's my pocket light," he said, wincing. Ah, he was only human after all. It wasn't the first time she got him hard nor would it be the last time. The physical discomfort was a small price to pay to have her in his arms.
"Well, then your flashlight is growing. Jeez, Eric, put a leash on that thing before it stabs me!" she teased.
"But it likes you," he pouted.
She giggled. "I seem to remember a certain tenth grade math class where it liked standing up in front of the entire class."
He sucked in a breath. "Hey, that traumatized me!”
R.L. Mathewson, Sudden Response

“I watch her do the simplest things: brushing her hair into a ponytail, feeding the dog, tying Sophie's shoelaces, and I want to tell her what she means to me, but I never actually say the words. After all, to acknowledge Delia as a drug, I'd have to face the fact that one day I might have to go without her and this I can't do.”
Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts

Victoria Schwab, The Unbound

“I hated meatloaf. It was like something that Satan pooped out after an eternity of constipation. So I told Mom because I was honest that way. I sat back, squared my shoulders, and met her eyes, all confident-like.

"Mom, meatloaf's like something that Satan pooped out after an eternity of constipation. It should be outlawed, frankly, and serving it for dinner is like child abuse and should carry with it some pretty stiff penalties.”
Hayden Thorne, Curse of Arachnaman

Terry Pratchett
“Natürlich dauerte es eine Weile, bis alles kompliziert genug wurde, um Gaswolken, Galaxien, Planeten und Kontinente hervorzubringen, ganz zu schweigen von winzigen korkenzieherförmigen Dingen, die durch schleimige Pfützen krochen und überlegten, ob es sich lohnte, Flossen, Beine und andere Gliedmaßen zu entwickeln. Wie dem auch sei: Der gegenwärtige Vorgang führte zu einem unaufhaltsamen Trend.Tod brauchte sich jetzt nur noch zu gedulden, und an Geduld mangelte es ihm nicht. Früher oder später gab es lebende Geschöpfe, die nichts Besseres im Sinn hatten, als sich zu vermehren und im Sonnenschein zu lachen, schließlich müde und alt zu werden. Die Gestalt mit der Sense nahm Platz und wartete. Tod wäre zur Stelle, wenn man ihn brauchte.”
Terry Pratchett, Eric

Und wenn sich die Benutzer mit einem Gebet beschweren, sitzt nur eine Sekretärin hinterm Tresen und meint, sie hätte keine Ahnung, wo der Boss ist.”
Terry Pratchett, Eric

Terry Pratchett, Eric

Terry Pratchett
“Meistens herrschte die betäubende Stille von menschlichen Gehirnen, die sich allmählich in Schmelzkäse verwandelten.”
Terry Pratchett, Eric

Terry Pratchett
“Jetzt begriff Rincewind, warum die Langeweile einen so großen Reiz auf ihn ausübte. Mit ihr ging die Überzeugung einher, daß woanders aufregende und gefährliche Dinge geschahen, die einen zum Glück nicht betrafen.”
Terry Pratchett, Eric

Terry Pratchett
“Es gefiel ihm nicht, daß ER zurück und auch noch zornig war. Wenn irgend etwas, das Großbuchstaben verdiente, in Rincewinds Nähe wütend wurde, so bezog sich die Wut meistens auf ihn.”

“Es gab einige Dinge, die selbst hier zu Einigkeit führten: keine weiteren Grundsatzerklärungen, keine konsultativen Dokumente, keine Mitteilungen an die Belegschaft, um die Moral zu verbessern. Dies war die Hölle, na schön, aber alles hatte seine Grenzen.”
Terry Pratchett, Eric
