Suzanne Collins
“Peeta's awake already, sitting on the side of the bed, looking bewildered as the trio of doctors reassure him, flash lights in his eyes, checks his pules. I'm disappointed that mine was not the first face he saw when he woke up, but he sees it now. His features registrer disbelief and something more intense that I can't quite place. Desire? Desperation? Surely both, for he sweeps the doctors aside, leaps to his feets and moves towards me. I run to meet him, my arms extended to embrace him. His hands are reaching for mine too, to caress my face, I think.

My lips are forming his name when his fingers lock around my throat.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

Amit Kalantri
“A photograph shouldn't be just a picture, it should be a philosophy.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Charlotte Eriksson
“I want to learn how to speak to anyone at any time and make us both feel a little bit better, lighter, richer, with no commitments of ever meeting again. I want to learn how to stand wherever with whoever and still feel stable. I want to learn how to unlock the locks to our minds, my mind, so that when I hear opinions or views that don’t match up with mine, I can still listen and understand. I want to burn up lifeless habits of following maps and to-do lists, concentrated liquids to burn my mind and throat
and I want to go back to the way nature shaped me. I want to learn to go on well with whatever I have in my hands at the moment
in a natural state of mind,
certain like the sea.

I will find comfort in the rhythm of the sea.”
Charlotte Eriksson

Nadia Scrieva
“Each meeting occurs at the precise moment for which it was meant. Usually, when it will have the greatest impact on our lives.”
Nadia Scrieva, Fathoms of Forgiveness

Gen Urobuchi
“Long before they had ever met, I think this destiny awaited them. They were not like ships passing in the night. It wasn't like they didn't understand each other. They understood each other better than anyone else, and each was focused solely on the other.”
Gen Urobuchi, 監視官 常守朱 1 [Kanshikan Akane Tsunemori]

Ibn Arabi
“دخلتُ يوماً بقرطبةَ على قاضيها أبى الوليد بن رشد ، وكان يرغب فى لقائى لما سمع وبلغه ما فتح الله به علىَّ فى خلوتى ، فكان يُظهر التعجُّبَ مما سمع . فبعثنى والدى إليه فى حاجةٍ ، قصداً منه حتى يجتمع بى ، فإنَّه كان من أصدقائه ، وأنا (آنذاك) صبىٌّ ما بقل وجهى ولا طرَّ شاربى . فعندما دخلت عليه ، قام من مكانه إلىَّ محبَّةً وإعظاماً ، فعانقنى وقال لى : نعم ! قلت له : نعم ! فزاد فرحه بى لفهمى عنه ، ثم استشعرتُ بما أفرحه ، فقلت : لا ! فانقبض وتغير لونه وشك فيما عنده . وقال لى : كيف وجدتم الأمرَ فى الكشف والفيض الإلهى ، هل هو ما أعطاه لنا النظر ؟ قلت : نعم ولا ، وبين نعم ولا تطيرُ الأرواحُ من موادِّها والأعناق من أجسادها ! فاصفرَّ لونُه وأخذه الأفكل وقعد يحوقل وقال: هذه حالة أثبتناها وما رأينا لها أربابا.”
Ibn Arabi, الفتوحات المكية

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“Socializing is more positive than being alone, that’s why meetings are so popular. People don’t like being alone. That would be, however, an important skill to learn...”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Finding Flow: The Psychology of Engagement with Everyday Life

Boris Pasternak
“But who are we, where do we come from
When all those years
Nothing but idle talk is left
And we are nowhere in the world?"

Robin Hobb, Royal Assassin

Carson McCullers
“For you see, when us people who know run into each other that's an event. It almost never happens. Sometimes we meet each other and neither guesses that the other is one who knows. That's a bad thing. It's happened to me a lot of times. But you see there are so few of us.”
Carson McCullers, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Holy Hottie-McHotters!”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, The Return

Margo T. Rose
“We met at a cross-roads in life,
But we were going different directions.
We were part of each other's lives,
But only for a moment.
The first person that you meet in life
Won't necessarily be the one who's forever.
Just look at you and me,
And it's not hard to see that
This is the moment before life goes on.
We are still friends;
We are still really good friends.
Please tell me that you agree.
But I'm not the one for you,
And you just can't see yourself with me.”
Margo T. Rose, The Words

Lynette Mather
“When a character comes to life, it’s like meeting a new friend for the first time.”
Lynette Mather

Kathryn Lasky
“Did Soren agree to be part of a system to protect Skench and Spoorn and the others?" Barren, the other Snowy monarch, asked in her soft voice.

He did indeed, madam," Ezylryb replied. "Soren is a much-misunderstood owl these days. Believe me, Soren will do whatever is required in this invasion.”
Kathryn Lasky, The Burning

Patrick Lencioni
“Keep in mind that a real team should be spending considerable time together in meetings and working sessions. In fact, it is not uncommon that as much as 20 percent of each team member’s time is spent working through issues and solving problems with the team as a whole. p. 105”
Patrick Lencioni, Overcoming the Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Field Guide for Leaders, Managers, and Facilitators

Adam Levin
“And that is why, when he finally did come across the street, I lit my cigarette with my lighter - not to make him feel like a fool who had fallen for a trick, but rather because he had said, 'you had better luck with matches,' when in fact I had not. It was not the matches that brought him across the street. It was the matches that kept him on the bench.”
Adam Levin, The Instructions

Muhammad Zakariya Kandhlawi
“While people like Hadhrat Uwais Qarni were distant, they remained close to Rasulullaah while people like Abu Jahal were close, yet they remained so far.”
Muhammad Zakariya Kandhlawi, Faza’il e Durood

“How can I shut down
If you don't open up??”
Ana Claudia Antunes, Pierrot & Columbine

D.L. Hess
“Holy mama llama. That’s Nathanial Stone. Nathanial Stone is sitting in my booth. Nathanial Stone is in the Finewhile Diner sitting in my booth. I’m supposed to wait on Nathanial Stone. I’m going to make a fool out of myself. I just know it. I can feel it coming. Crap.”
D.L. Hess, Sir

“Humans' eyes cannot take in information when there is zero light reflecting back”

Winston Groom
“One day we found them. They must of been holding a gook convention or something, cause it seem like the same sort of deal as when you step on a anthill and they all come swarming around.”
Winston Groom, Forrest Gump

D.L. Hess
“I look around, hoping I can postpone the indignity of stuttering like a lunatic in front of the sexiest man alive – according to People magazine, twice – while giving him crazy eyes. Of course, everyone looks like they’re taken care of. Except for Mr. Sexypants, major Hollywood actor, Nathanial Stone, Sir.”
D.L. Hess, Sir

“Sometimes we meet someone and feel like we have known them all our lives.”
Avijeet Das

Carson McCullers
“You are walking down a street and you meet somebody. Anybody. And you look at each other. And you are you. And he is him. Yet when you look at each other, the eyes make a connection. Then you go off one way. And he goes off another way. You go off into different parts of town, and maybe you never see each other again. Not in your whole life.”
Carson McCullers, The Member of the Wedding

T.L. Shreffler
“A shooting star, a cloud, or some sign from the Goddess....? One second later, the world shattered. Her father's grumbling voice was suddenly cut off by an ear-splitting crashhhh! The skylight exploded into a million pieces.”
T.L. Shreffler, Sora's Quest

“Just stop lying to yourself and pretend that time does not exist or seriously affect our actions. I'm here now, and time is here too. There are not two separate things, time and place. We are the ones who distinguish them, we are the ones who are moving away. I just said that´s enough ignoring time and place that relies us inexorably. You have to take steps, simple steps and break the barrier between time and space. Yes, I'm here in front of you because I want to stop wasting my time and do something. Instead of giving up on time I chose to give up on not worrying about time. Yes, I want to drink time the way one drinks water, I want to make of it my own internal fuel. I know, many of the things I'm saying now will seem absurd but, if you think about it for a moment, you will find a little sense in all this. I'm not going to list the reasons why I have not tried so far to meet you. Every reason has its own logic”
Claudio Dunca

Akansh Malik
“Some people meet you for a reason, while others meet you to stay there in your life.”
Akansh Malik

Danielle Bennett
“You could approach someone worlds apart from you by offering them, like a handshake, a simple truth from their own lives.”
Danielle Bennett, Dragon Soul

“The first question to ask about your next meeting; is this meeting really necessary?”
