Ally Carter
“I wanted to pull away, remind him that I was a big girl, a highly trained operative, a spy - that I'd been training for this mission my entire life, and I wasn't going to be left on the sidelines. But in the dim space with Zach pressed tightly against me, only one thought came to mind. I kissed him - longer and deeper than I ever had before. The school was not watching us this time. There was nothing playful in the tone. We were just two people kissing as if for the first time, as if it might be the last.

And then I broke away. "So," I asked, as if I got kissed like that all the time (which, believe me, I don't), "where is it you're taking me again?"

"The tombs.”
Ally Carter

Jennifer Elisabeth
“I know that your soul is on life support and that you feel lost and like you’re completely spinning out of control, but you’re finding yourself — here, tonight… even in this darkness.”
Jennifer Elisabeth

J.D. Salinger
“Girls with their legs crossed, girls with their legs not crossed, girls with terrific legs, girls with lousy legs, girls that looked like swell girls, girls that looked like they'd be bitches if you knew them... You figured most of them would probably marry dopey guys. Guys that always talk about how many miles they get to a gallon in their goddam cars. Guys that get sore and childish as hell if you beat them at golf, or even just some stupid game like ping-pong. Guys that are very mean. Guys that never read books. Guys that are very boring.”
J.D. Salinger, Cliffs Notes on Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye

Hannah Harrington
“All of them are the same type; girls with overprocessed hair and too much makeup and way too much access to Daddy’s credit cards. Girls who, if you took away the designer labels, hair dye and cover-up, wouldn’t be more than average-looking, but with all that stuff look too plastic to be pretty.”
Hannah Harrington, Speechless

Colleen  Curran
“Life was like that when you were fifteen and knobby-kneed and you only had a handful of choices. Your world was small and cruel and narrow-minded and breathtaking.”
Colleen Curran

Joyce Cary
“Why,' I said, quite surprised by my own eloquence in inventing all this stuff, 'it happens every day. The old old story. Boys and girls fall in love, that is, they are driven mad and go blind and deaf and see each other not as human animals with comic noses and bandy legs and voices like frogs, but as angels so full of shining goodness that like hollow turnips with candles put into them, they seem miracles of beauty. And the next minute the candles shoot out sparks and burn their eyes. And they seem to each other like devils, full of spite and cruelty. And they will drive each other mad unless they have grown some imagination. Even enough to laugh.”
Joyce Cary, The Horse's Mouth

Jennifer Elisabeth
“Love is my drug of choice, even if it comes laced with pain and disaster.”
Jennifer Elisabeth

Randa Abdel-Fattah
“You? Nervous? Man, you've got more balls than any girl I've ever known!'

'You've known some weird girls, then," I say, raising an eyebrow at him.”
Randa Abdel-Fattah, Does My Head Look Big in This?

Alex Bradley
“You've got the holy trinity of what a girl wants, she said. Cute, smart, funny. I don't think you realize that.”

Markus Zusak
“They're brainless girls, otherwise they wouldn't be seen dead here. They're pretty, with ugly, appealing smiles and conversations we can't hear. They breathe smoke and blow it out, and words drop from their mouths and get crushed to the floor. Or they get discarded, just to glow with warmth for a moment, for someone else to tread on later.”
Markus Zusak, Fighting Ruben Wolfe

“IT helps to think of the whole development thing as a process; you go in looking like a girl, and you'll come out at the other end looking like a woman. The stuff in the middle is just what everyone goes through, it;s almost never much fun.”
Philip Van Munching, Boys Will Put You on a Pedestal (So They Can Look Up Your Skirt): A Dad's Advice for Daughters

Kristin Hannah
“She pouted prettily, and he wondered if that was one of the things they taught wealthy young girls at schools like Miss Porter's. If not, it had been passed down from one generation to another as carefully as the secret of fire.”
Kristin Hannah, Summer Island

“This one had come to me, though, picked me out. I thought she was trouble from the start. I don't read minds and I can't see the future, but call it instinct or experience, something was prickling my spine.
You could call it something else, if you wanted: adolescence, hormones, lust. Being seventeen. That doesn't go away, however long you practice.
"Hullo," I said politely, warily.
She was long and slim and very neatly put together, dark hair tumbling over denim, old worn black jacket and jeans that somehow hadn't faded into grey. They probably didn't dare. Right from the start I saw a focus in her, a determination that must go all the way through, like the writing in a stick of Brighton rock. In another world, another lifetime, I thought she'd have raven-feathers in her hair, a bear's tooth on a thong about her. She'd be the village shaman, talking to spirits, and even the headman would be afraid of her, a little...
Seventeen, I told you. She was devastating to me, she was sitting at my table, and I couldn't afford her. Not for a minute.
If I'd stood up, if I'd left, if I'd run away...
Nah. She would just have come after me. Faster, fitter, and on longer legs. What chance did I ever have?”
Ben Macallan, Desdaemona

Mackenzi Lee
“It would be so much easier if I did not want to know everything so badly. If I did not want so badly to be reliant upon no soul by myself.”
Mackenzi Lee, The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

Ross Raisin
“there wasn't use trying to talk with a girl just because of something she'd said to me in a dream”

Junot Díaz
“Sure, I liked girls but I was always too terrified to speak to them unless we were arguing or I was calling them stupidos, which was one of my favorite words that year.”
Junot Díaz, Drown

Holly Hood
“I overheard Nona talking about my little buds and how she remembered back when she was developing into a woman, and that was enough for me.”
Holly Hood, Ink

Frank O'Connor
“So Father Ring went off in the lofty mood of a man who has defended a principle at a great sacrifice to himself, but that very night he began to brood and he continued to brood till that sickly looking voluptuary of a ten-shilling note took on all the radiance and charm of a virgin of seventeen.”
Frank O'Connor, Collected Stories

“Women are magic! They were meant to dazzle you!”
Avijeet Das

Ehsan Sehgal
“Taste
***
Girls
Before marriage are sweet
After marriage are bitter
In both situations
If they are angry
They are sour
Unfortunately,
They are tasteless
After divorce.”

Ruth Sawyer
“Children interested Miss Peters, especially when she found one that had not been run into a mold or cut out of a given piece of cloth and made up like a flannel rabbit.”
Ruth Sawyer, Roller Skates

“The Senior Ball was upon us and I didn’t have a date. Having spent my high school years attending this school didn’t help. Perhaps I should have invited Thelma. Now, that would have been something! Looking back I wonder what would have happened if I had? Everyone at the school knew Thelma, and Ridell High, being a snobbish school in a snobbish town, would certainly have ostracized the two of us. Besides, Thelma was just a little too old for me and I was just too chicken to bring the town’s hottest girl to the schools biggest function.”
Captain Hank Bracker, "Seawater One"

“Too often girls cover up their highlights instead of their shadows. And too often the right boys are too late to notice.”
Giovannie de Sadeleer

Robert  Black
“Some girls see money, some girls see power, some girls see art, and some girls see potential, but at the end of the day, they are all seeking security.”
Robert Black

“All a man really wants, is a girl who looks good in a bikini.”

Jacqueline Woodson

“I've learned not to walk in with pistols drawn, but rather to keep them hidden in my petticoats with a hand surreptitiously upon the heel.”
