Erik Pevernagie

Erik Pevernagie
“If we want to decode our community's deep-seated fibers, we must go and see the world and explore the significant distinctions and resemblances. To find out about the inner self and understand our internal murmurings, we must learn to reach out to the others. ("On a casual day without a tie")”
Erik Pevernagie

Erik Pevernagie

Paulo Coelho
“Your answer is the logical, coherent answer an absolutely normal person would give: It's a tie! A lunatic, however, would say that what I have around my neck is a ridiculous, useless bit of colored cloth tied in a very complicated way, which makes it harder to get air into your lungs and difficult to turn your neck. I have to be careful when I'm anywhere near a fan, or I could be strangled by this bit of cloth.
If a lunatic were to ask me what this tie is for, I would have to say, absolutely nothing. It's not even purely decorative, since nowadays it's become a symbol of slavery, power, aloofness. The only really useful function a tie serves is the sense of relief when you get home and take it off; you feel as if you've freed yourself from something, though quite what you don't know.”
Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

“Break free from the binding robes of passion that feels like a lump in your heart, perform that surgery today, and you'll be set free forever.”

Charles Dickens
“Of all my old associations, of all my old pursuits and hopes, of all the living and the dead world, this one poor soul alone comes natural to me, and I am fit for.  There is a tie of many suffering years between us two, and it is the only tie I ever had on earth that Chancery has not broken!”
Charles Dickens, Bleak House

Nicholas Sparks
“Isn't that the tie Lily bought for your birthday?"

Evan looked down to examine it. It was paisley, a kaleidoscope of color. "Yes it is, as a matter of fact. Good memory. What do you think? Too much?"

"It doesn't matter what I think."

"But you don't like it."

"I think that if you want to wear it, you should wear it."

Evan seemed momentarily undecided. "Why do you do that?"

"Do what?"

"Refuse to answer a simple question."

"Because my opinion is irrelevant. You should wear what you want."

"Just tell me, okay?"

"I don't like your tie."

"Really? Why not?"

"Because it's ugly."

"It's not ugly."

Colin nodded. "Okay."

"You don't know what you're talking about."

"Probably."

"You don't even wear ties."

"You're right."

"So why do I care what you think?"

"I don't know."

Evan scowled. "Talking to you can be infuriating, you know."

"I know. You've said that before."

"Of course I've said it before! Because it's true! Didn't we just talk about this the other night? You don't have to say whatever pops into your head."

"But you asked."

"Just ... Oh, forget it." He turned and started back toward the house. "I'll talk to you later, okay?"

"Where are you going?"

Evan walked a couple of steps before answering without turning around. "To change my damn tie. And by the way Margolis was right. Your face still looks like it was run through a meat grinder."

Colin smiled. "Hey, Evan!"

Evan stopped and turned. "What?"

"Thanks."

"For what?"

"For everything."

"Yeah, yeah. You're just lucky I won't tell Lily what you said."

"You can if you'd like. I already told her."

Evan starred. "Of course you did.”
Nicholas Sparks, See Me

Vann Chow
“Having a date with someone other than your ex-wife after being a married man for more than twenty five years was an important occasion alright, but wearing a tie she bought with such strong emotional value attached to it was a form of cowardice, a subconscious reluctance to let go.”
Vann Chow, The White Man and the Pachinko Girl

Sara Sheridan
“Mirabelle? Mirabelle Bevan? Well, I’ll be blowed!”
Mirabelle started, almost spilling her drink. It took her a moment to realize who the handsome man was, now his hair was greying at the edges and he was out of uniform. Puffing laconically on a cigarette, martini in hand, he wore a lounge suit and an understated silk tie with a discreet regimental insignia woven into the fabric.
“Eddie,” she smiled. “What are you doing here?”
Sara Sheridan

“Tie. Se oli niin kauan ollut minulle kyseenalaistamaton matkailun, seikkailun ja pakenemisen symboli, mutta todellisuudessa se on pelkkä surkea metafora. Tie on tunneli, joka vangitsee ihmisen suoraviivaisiin tiloihin, käsitteisiin ja aikaan. Se tarjoaa helppoutta ja mukavuutta, mutta kätkee ihmiseltä kaiken, mitä tämä voisi löytää, jos hänellä vain olisi aikaa ja uteliaisuutta jättää tie taakseen.”
Dan Kieran

Israelmore Ayivor
“Never let the emotions of the past tie you down for your future to slaughter. Resist every opportunity to become angry and you will live a healthier happier life!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

“The main thing that determines your victory is your tie with God”
Sunday Adelaja

“You would roll it up in your pocket. It doesn't wrinkle. You can se it for emergency meeting in which a tie is de riguer and still look good. It goes with everything. In a pinch, you could use it as a belt. In an emergency, you can use it to tie a broken suitcase closed.

No resourceful gentlemen should be without one. It is truly indispensable.”
Roger Stone, Stone's Rules: How to Win at Politics, Business, and Style
