“The gate is perfectly simple," Temeraire said. "There is only a bar across the fence, which one can lift very easily, and then it swings open; Nitidus could do it best, for his forehands are the smallest. Though it is difficult to keep the animals inside the pen, and the first time I learned how to open it, they all ran away," he added.

Naomi Novik, Throne of Jade

Richard P. Feynman
“I suddenly remembered that Murray Gell-Mann and I were supposed to give talks at that conference on the present situation of high-energy physics. My talk was set for the plenary session, so I asked the guide, "Sir, where would the talks for the plenary session of the conference be?"

"Back in that room that we just came through."

"Oh!" I said in delight. "Then I'm gonna give a speech in that room!"

The guide looked down at my dirty pants and my sloppy shirt. I realized how dumb that remark must have sounded to him, but it was genuine surprise and delight on my part.

We went along a little bit farther, and the guide said, "This is a lounge for the various delegates, where they often hold informal discussions." They were some small, square windows in the doors to the lounge that you could look through, so people looked in. There were a few men sitting there talking.

I looked through the windows and saw Igor Tamm, a physicist from Russia that I know. "Oh!" I said. "I know that guy!" and I started through the door.

The guide screamed, "No, no! Don't go in there!" By this time he was sure he had a maniac on his hands, but he couldn't chase me because he wasn't allowed to go through the door himself!”
Richard Feynman

“Death lies not in being dead, but in acting dead.”
Linda Armstrong, The Zombie Wizards of Ala-ka

“Just as you drop body parts, those parts reassemble, and have done so continuously over the history of the earth. People decompose, become dirt, dirt becomes vegetables and fruit, animals and people eat the food that grows from the dirt that was once a body. It is all one big recycling program the earth does.”
Linda Armstrong, The Zombie Wizards of Ala-ka

“Arman groaned. “You’re definitely taking all the romance out of this.”

“I’m sorry,” he said quietly. “But sex is silly and it’s funny, and it doesn’t always work—you need to get that idea out of your head or you’ll get depressed if it’s not all magical.”
Ann Somerville, Kei's Gift

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Without humanity how can human beings enter Heaven?”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“Words such as frugality, miserliness and thriftiness came to my mind. As one would swallow a bitter medicine, I swallowed the experience, paid for the services and took my leave. Jan Carlzon was right when he started if one is not serving the customer, one's job is to be serving someone who is.”
Dr Neetha Joseph, I AM AUDACIOUS

“You could call it a period of harassment, during which, each time I reset my password it got changed, documents downloaded or created or saved disappeared. I also stumbled upon changes made to the manuscript I had edited earlier, was blocked out of my social networking websites and features added or deleted to the websites I own. To make matters worse, I did not know that malware had different names such as a virus, worm, Trojan horse, spyware, ransomware, rootkit, RAT and backdoor.”
Dr Neetha Joseph, I AM AUDACIOUS

“Staying alive means having to fulfil responsibilities and pay for all the expenses incurred while living. Since when did dying become an expensive affair, I thought to myself. What does it cost for a funeral these days? I embarked on a research and my findings increased my desire to live and crusade against all kinds of negative forces.”
Dr Neetha Joseph, I AM AUDACIOUS

“It being the digital age and all, I can comprehend why one would choose the mobile phone, the most convenient and indispensable device , as a tool to be insolent towards antediluvian people like me who still have not lost faith in down-to-earth face-to-face interactions. It always begins with an impulsive need to pick up the phone and browse through apps. This need then, with the speed of the wind would gain a sense of immediacy whereupon, Mr./Ms. Presumptuous would make unconvincing excuses about having to take a call or text to a family member to check on his/her welfare. Leaving me in the middle of an interesting development that I am so willing to share, Mr./Ms. Presumptuous walks few meters away from where I am seated and comes back twenty minutes later only to steer the conversation away to a subject that he/she fancies.”
Dr Neetha Joseph, I AM AUDACIOUS

“Did I tell you it is a crime to drink un-chilled wine? An act of gross injustice that would offend the manufacturers, connoisseurs of wine and food critics alike. Red wine adds glamour to a snifter whereas white wine adds sparkle to your stemware. Sparkling rose with its romantic hue would give the crystal cut glassware an aura of romance. The feeling you get when you swirl the sweet, sour, tangy, crisp liquid in your mouth with your first sip is unsurpassable, A few more sips and a gentle warmth courts you, which spreads through your veins making you feel relaxed. You can feel your spirits soar high in the clouds of imagination or intoxication.”
Dr Neetha Joseph, I AM AUDACIOUS

“You’re wrong! I’m NOT a frog because I can’t eat flies; but, I’m able to eat these bugs. Can I be a raccoon like you guys?”

“Silly frog, you can’t be a raccoon! Mamma eats frogs, and she’ll be back soon.”
Alicia J. Pfaff, If I Can't Eat Flies, What Am I?
