Walter Isaacson
“If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you’ve done and whoever you were and throw them away. The more the outside world tries to reinforce an image of you, the harder it is to continue to be an artist, which is why a lot of times, artists have to say, “Bye. I have to go. I’m going crazy and I’m getting out of here.” And they go and hibernate somewhere. Maybe later they re-emerge a little differently. (Steve Jobs)”
Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs

Stefan Zweig
“He was the kind of young man whose handsome face has brought him plenty of success in the past and is now ever-ready for a new encounter, a fresh-experience, always eager to set off into the unknown territory of a little adventure, never taken by surprise because he has worked out everything in advance and is waiting to see what happens, a man who will never overlook any erotic opportunity, whose first glance probes every woman's sensuality, and explores it, without discriminating between his friend's wife and the parlour-maid who opens the door to him. Such men are described with a certain facile contempt as lady-killers, but the term has a nugget of truthful observation in it, for in fact all the passionate instincts of the chase are present in their ceaseless vigilance: the stalking of the prey, the excitement and mental cruelty of the kill. They are constantly on the alert, always ready and willing to follow the trail of an adventure to the very edge of the abyss. They are full of passion all the time, but it is the passion of a gambler rather than a lover, cold, calculating and dangerous. Some are so persistent that their whole lives, long after their youth is spent, are made an eternal adventure by this expectation. Each of their days is resolved into hundreds of small sensual experiences - a look exchanged in passing, a fleeting smile, knees brushing together as a couple sit opposite each other - and the year, in its own turn, dissolves into hundreds of such days in which sensuous experience is the constantly flowing, nourishing, inspiring source of life.”
Stefan Zweig, The Burning Secret and other stories

C. JoyBell C.
“The playboy is not necessarily a man who has many girlfriends, or a man who has many women, or a man who has slept with many women. That is old. But there is a new breed of the playboy and he is the man who remains single in attempts to make every woman feel as if he belongs to her, he remains a virgin in order to make every woman feel like she will be the first one, and in the end he may choose a very unattractive woman to adorn his side, so that in all circumstances, he will shine as the more beautiful one. This is the new breed of playboy. And it is a very evil one.”
C. JoyBell C.

Anthony Bourdain
“The way you make an omelet reveals your character.”
Anthony Bourdain

Sally Wentworth
“And believe me, darling, there's no man more faithful than a reformed playboy. They make far better husbands than men who haven't had time to sow their wild oats before they marry, so go off the rails at about forty-five because they suddenly realise that they've missed out on life and if they don't hurry up it's going to be too late.”
Sally Wentworth, Flying High

Michael Bassey Johnson
“They may take you for a fool, promise to shower you with the world, use their canny devastating tongue to manipulate and dominate your mind, but its better to put them bulshit people at arms length rather than falling into the arms of infidelity.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Franca Storm
“I completely lost control.

I was out of my fucking mind with the taste of her, the feel of her, those little moans of pleasure she made.

Fuck, that woman completely unmans me.

She consumes me to the point where my brain stops functioning entirely….”
Franca Storm, Comfort Zone

Raquel Cepeda
“In reality, Eduardo hoped the mask would make him appear vulnerable and self conscious, like a wounded animal these stupid women would fight each other over to mend.”
Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

Marshall McLuhan
“I expect to see the coming decades transform the planet into an art form; the new man, linked in a cosmic harmony that transcends time and space, will sensuously caress and mold and pattern every facet of the terrestrial artifact as if it were a work of art, and man himself will become an organic art form. There is a long road ahead, and the stars are only way stations, but we have begun the journey. To be born in this age is a precious gift, and I regret the prospect of my own death only because I will leave so many pages of man’s destiny — if you will excuse the Gutenbergian image — tantalizingly unread. But perhaps, as I’ve tried to demonstrate in my examination of the postliterate culture, the story begins only when the book closes.”
Marshall McLuhan

Jim Butcher
“Yeah, they look great, but that isn't a fantasy come true, Harry. That's a wood chipper in Playboy bunny clothing.”
Jim Butcher, Cold Days

Germaine Greer
“The occupational hazard of being a Playboy Bunny is the aching facial muscles brought on by obligatory smiles.”
Germaine Greer, The Female Eunuch

“Women! They madly love Casanovas for their traits and equally hate them for being disloyal.”
Himmilicious, Lemon Tea and White Safari

George Best
“In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol - it was the worst 20 minutes of my life.”
George Best

Robin Hobb
“I once knew of a minstrel who bragged of having had a thousand women, one time each. He would never know what I knew, that to have one woman a thousand times, and each time find in her a different delight, is far better. I knew now what gleamed in the eyes of old couples when they stared at each other across a room...My familiarity with her was a more potent love elixir than any potion sold by a hedge-witch in the market.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Assassin

Maureen Child
“I’m not the white-picket-fence kind of guy. So don’t go building castles in the air. You’ll get trapped in the rubble when they collapse.”
Maureen Child, Baby Bonanza

J.M. Stewart
“He held his hand out, palm up, watching her with soft, penetrating eyes, deep, dark eyes that called to her the longer she stared at them. “How ’bout you give me the benefit of the doubt every once in a while, hmm? I’d like a chance to prove I’m not that stupid kid anymore.”
J.M. Stewart, The Playboy's Baby

Franca Storm
“I’m broken.
Fucked up.
I feel sick.
I can’t breathe.
It’s like someone’s snaked their fingers around my heart, capturing it in a crushing grip.
It’s Emma. This is her doing.
Well, it won’t fucking bleed for her.
It won’t bleed for anyone.
It’s black.
I’m dead inside.”
Franca Storm, Comfort Zone

Tami Lund
“She wore a fitted white scoop neck shirt under a thin jacket, slim brown pants and tennis shoes. He bet she looked hot in four-inch heels. He wondered how long she’d last in this town, and he decided he wanted to sleep with her before she left.”
Tami Lund, Candy Crush

Janette Rallison
“Take Landon McKellips. He always plays the part of a womanizing playboy, but for all I know, he's completely different from that in real life.' 'No,' Slade said. 'He's actually like that.”
Janette Rallison, Masquerade

Ryan Lilly
“I'm friends with a guy who is friends with a former Playboy model. So I guess you could say I'm 1 degree away from 212 degrees.”
Ryan Lilly, Write like no one is reading

J.M. Stewart
“She hadn’t come for any of that. She came for him. Twenty feet in front of her, leaning back against the waist-high bar, stood the man she’d spent all day tracking down—the infamous Dillon James. The man who would soon have the power to take away everything she held dear.”
J.M. Stewart, The Playboy's Baby

“Laissez-faire capitalism, or anarchocapitalism, is simply the economic form of the libertarian ethic. Laissez-faire capitalism encompasses the notion that men should exchange goods and services, without regulation, solely on the basis of value for value. It recognizes charity and communal enterprises as voluntary versions of this same ethic. Such a system would be straight barter, except for the widely felt need for a division of labor in which men, voluntarily, accept value tokens such as cash and credit. Economically, this system is anarchy, and proudly so.”
Karl Hess

George Best
“I used to go missing a lot... Miss Canada, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World.”
George Best

Andrew James Pritchard
“Needless to say, Robbie and I confiscated all of the magazines, which we then quickly hid under our beds, and replaced the Playboys with nature magazines. So next time dad wants to drool over Marcy Hanson, or Debbie Davis, he’s going to find Ranger Rick and Canadian Geographic instead. Best of all he can’t complain to mom about it, as she would kill him for having the Playboys in the first place. However, he can’t get mad at us either, or we’ll simply tell mom about what we found.”
Andrew James Pritchard, Sukiyaki

J.M. Stewart
“Doubt filled her eyes. “What are we betting for, anyway?”

He hadn’t thought about that, but it took his brain all of three seconds to come up with an answer. He knew damn well what he wanted from her. Had for years.

“A kiss.” The words slipped from his lips before he could stop them, but once out, he didn’t want to take them back. “One kiss after you come back and see she’s all right.”
J.M. Stewart, The Playboy's Baby

“Im Jahr 1970 noch protestierten Feministinnen gegen die Vergegenständlichung von Frauen in mondänen pornographischen Männermagazinen wir dem Playboy. Jetzt konzentriert sich der organisierte Protest gegen die Verwendung von Kindern und die Porträtierung von Gewalt in der Pornographie. Die Forderung, Frauen nicht als Sexualobjekte darzustellen, wird als übertrieben und hysterisch abgetan. Eine Toleranz wird geschaffen, wenn eine Stufe von Missbrauch (z.B. sexuelle Vergegenständlichung) in Anbetracht höherer Stufen der Vergegenständlichung und schwerwiegenderer Formen von Gewalt gerechtfertigt wird”
Kathleen Barry, Female Sexual Slavery

Petra Hermans
“Playboy has it All.”
Petra Hermans

Steven Magee
“A man that wants to habitually fornicate with many women should never get married or have children.”
Steven Magee
