“Codes and semiotic conventions are a challenge for human communication, since they seal off people with a privacy protection label and make them accessible only by means of a barcode that might estrange them from their surroundings but, at the same time, procure them a kind of reassurance in their comfort zone. This dialectical situation may keep them struggling during their entire life. ("The unbreakable code " )”
Erik Pevernagie

“Some pain has no relief,it can only be sealed
You can grasp the wound to feel the scar unhealed.”
Munia Khan

“There is no honor in sending men to die for something you won't even fight for yourself”
Mark Owen, No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden

“If she knew how beautiful love is, she would already put it in a box, seal, and preserve it.
So she could smell it whenever she wants.”
Kusumastuti, Denting Lara

Munia Khan
“Sealing your lips makes your eyes talk
Truth creeps beneath your lame feet’s walk
Knees stiffen when blood vessels stalk
A pounding heart’s lies hard as rock”
Munia Khan

Kamand Kojouri
“I have no use for these other loves.
Seal them shut in jars
and place them in the pantry.
A reserve of love.

Thank them for their love.
They are so kind.
Perhaps store them in the fridge
For others to take.

They say love is a panacea.
I know it is not.
Flakes of snow,
no two are alike.

When I am down on my knees,
hopeless and angry,
for the world no longer makes sense,
I won't look in the pantry or fridge.

It is your hand pressing on my shoulder
that makes me whole,
makes me forget.
What trouble? What world?”
Kamand Kojouri

Pamela Clare
“What's different about you? Why does it make you a pussy if you get help, but not the rest of the team? Oh, I get it. You're the Cobra. You get within striking distance of the enemy, and it's over. But if it all goes sideways and the wrong men die, you don't need help like the rest of us mere mortals.”
Pamela Clare, Striking Distance

Sara Jane Stone
“And when you're not partying in Vegas, what do you do?" she asked. "Prepare for your role as the next James Bond?"
"No, I don't work alone."
She cocked her head as if trying to make sense of his words.
"I'm a SEAL in Uncle Sam's Navy. When I'm working, I have a team of guys who could kick James Bond's ass watching my back, covering my six at all times.”
Sara Jane Stone, To Tempt a SEAL

“When you love someone deeply,
Say it with a flower,
And seal it with a kiss.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Why didn't I ask him for his number, address, e-mail — anything? Why? Because I'm in a sodding war zone, that's why. And I'm a soldier. And this wasn't supposed to happen.”
David Massey, Torn

Natalya Vorobyova
“For me to forgive my ex, he would have to sign a marriage contract with his tears and seal it with his blood.”
Natalya Vorobyova

Rebecca McNutt
“And what if the other kids laugh at me?” Kerry complained to her parents as she nibbled on a piece of toast that morning. “I have a Cape Breton accent! They’ll know I’m from Canada and they’ll start asking me if I lived in an igloo or ate maple syrup, bacon and seal meat every day!”

“You’re really overreacting,” Susan chuckled, sipping on a glass of orange juice. “Canada is a lot like the States and the only thing separating both countries is an imaginary boarder! If anyone laughs at you, tell them it doesn’t snow year-round, you got free health care while you were there and that you never rode a polar bear to school. Besides, do you know how many popular movies and TV shows from the States were filmed in Canada?”

“It’s not just the Canada stuff mom,” Kerry sighed worriedly. “I’m from Dym, it’s an industrial dump!”

“Yeah, and have you looked at Pittsburgh lately?” Susan asked. “Full of coal mines and steel mills, just like Sydney was when we lived there! I actually rather came to like the pollution, I don’t think I’d ever want to leave it.”
Rebecca McNutt, Nostalgia

Orson Scott Card
“It was not about physical strength, Wit reminded himself. It was 90 percent mental, 10 percent physical. That's what the SEAL instructors were looking for: men and women who could disregard the pleadings of the body. Pain was nothing, sleep was nothing. What was chaffed skin, wrecked muscles, bleeding sores? The body chooses to be sore. The body chooses to be exhausted. But the SEAL mind rejects it. The SEAL mind commands the body, not the other way around.”
Orson Scott Card, Earth Awakens

Munia Khan
“Life needs a room so hermetically sealed to breathe life”
Munia Khan

“A tall woman strode over to them, shouldering her rifle. Her helmet hid her hair, but her goggles were up, showing blazing blue eyes. “I’m Valkyrie, the team leader.” She waved a hand at the dark-skinned soldier holding him up. “Doc’s our medic, he’ll see to your leg.”
Rhys didn’t move and the woman’s face turned harsher than the mountains surrounding them.
“Do you have a problem, sailor?” She knew they were SEALs, even without identifying insignia.
“No, sir,” Rhys said. “I mean, ma’am.”

She rolled her eyes before facing Jake. “My team can handle this from here. Get on the bird.”
Jake shook his head in confusion, pain making his thinking slow. “You’re a woman.”
Her voice hardened. “I’m a captain, and you’re done here. This is now my mission.”
“You’re not spec ops.” Jake’s leg might be screaming at him, but no American woman was allowed in special operations.
“We’re better than spec ops,” she said. “We’re E.D.G.E. operators. Now get your ass onboard.” She walked away.

“I think I’m in love,” Rhys said, staring after her.”
Trish Loye, Edge of Control

“Reaching out, he took her hand. “We’re going to be ready. Whether it’s tonight, tomorrow or the next day . . . we’ll be prepared. I won’t let anyone hurt you or the kids.”
Relief flickered across her face. “This isn’t your fight. I feel guilty for making it seem like it is. But I’m also glad you’re here and that makes me feel guilty again, so . . . ”
“Guilt’s a useless emotion.” He made peace with that much in rehab. It was useless to feel guilty that he’d made it home alive from Pakistan when some of his team mates hadn’t been so lucky. Equally worthless was his guilt over his sense of loss about his leg when Colton hadn’t come home at all. “You need the kind of help I can provide. And I don’t mind helping. I’ve always . . . ” Liked you, is what he meant to say. Maybe cared a little. But his throat stopped working and the words remained trapped in his brain. Which had become strangely disconnected with logic. Because instead of saying more, he leaned in slightly and kissed her.”

Petter Dass
“Her var ey at tøve, den Hane blev spendt,
En gloende Kuule hen venlig forsendt
Den skind-klæde Skolt bag sit Øre;
Det smaget ham ligesom nye-smeltet Bly,
De andre hans Grander begyndte at flye,
Vil Selskab der længer ey giøre.”
Petter Dass, The Trumpet of Nordland

“Walk on with the spirit of boldness; talk on with the glory of confidence. You have a mandated seal on your chest... When you go with a bold chest, the devil and his cohorts must give way!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Rae Carson
“The people around me gasp in recognition of the seal.”
Rae Carson, The Girl of Fire and Thorns

“There are no more ceilings over my dreams... They have no limit; they limitless! They are extra-large!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“...the daily morning muster began beneath a sign that said, 'Are you ready for war today? You should be.' SEALs hadn't fired a shot in anger for years. But nobody ever admitted that around civilians, even to their closest non-SEAL friends.”
Robert O'Neill, The Operator: Firing the Shots that Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior

“The troop commander's name was Rich...[and] he was one of the best leaders I've ever known. His motto, which I've stolen from him, is, 'Nobody ever worked for me. They worked with me.”
Robert O'Neill, The Operator: Firing the Shots that Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior
