James Allen Moseley
“Ray looked up and scanned Ilsa from North to South and then from East to West. It only took a moment. Ray was in love. Again. Probably. Conscious of his dashing Hispanic allure, Ray was always optimistic about his chances with the female sex. He had left a very long string of girlfriends in his wake, but there was something about this woman, who projected such shyness about her untapped feminine charms, that made his already active pulse race. Somehow he couldn’t help imagining her blundering into his bedroom at midnight wearing nothing but a towel. Those many affairs of the past, he told himself, were just steppingstones of his dead past on which he was rising to the discovery of his one, true love. And here she was. Probably.”
James Allen Moseley, The Duke of D.C.: The American Dream

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I might not have gone but for you, and so have missed the finest study I have ever come across: a study in scarlet, eh? Why shouldn't we use a little art jargon. There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colorless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it.

-Sherlock Holmes”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet

James Allen Moseley

Emma Theriault
“I'm the one who's different."
"A princess, you mean?"
She pinched his arm lightly as the carriage turned onto rue Dauphine. "Not a princess." Belle's refusal to take the title marriage to Lio would have afforded her was a touchy subject between them.
He mercifully let it go. "But certainly not the girl you were then."
She turned her attention to the wallpapered panel of the carriage, tracing the embossed flowers with the tip of her finger, unwilling to let him see her smile falter once more. She didn't know how to explain that she would always be that girl, that no titles or fine clothing would change her. In her bones, she was a poor, provincial peasant who had risen far above her station.”
Emma Theriault, Rebel Rose

Jean   Koning

Mary E. Pearson
“Rahtan, Ten, Shadowmaker, no title you hold is going to make me change my mind on this one,' he had growled to me under his breath as we got our gear together. 'And only today does an ambassador trump a Patrei,' he added, and then kissed me, long and hard. 'We'll see about that, pretty boy,' I whispered back to him.”
Mary E. Pearson, Vow of Thieves

Vincent Okay Nwachukwu, Weighty 'n' Worthy African Proverbs - Volume 1

Vincent Okay Nwachukwu
“The way some people seek title is baffling. They are willing to feed their own to the lion to achieve it. Even those who cannot kill a rat want to answer, the Lion Slayer 1 of world people.”
Vincent Okay Nwachukwu, Weighty 'n' Worthy African Proverbs - Volume 1

Iris Murdoch
“Oh if only I could take my mother away and never know of these things again. But it was impossible, the machine would go on and on and nothing would stop it. And no one from now on for ever would know how much he suffered and what it was really like to be him.

How can I bear it, he thought, how can I go on bearing it without becoming something savage and awful?”
Iris Murdoch, The Sacred and Profane Love Machine

Celeste Ng
“He can't know what it was like, not the first time, not the last. He can guess, but he won't ever know, not really. What it was like, what she was thinking, everything she'd never told him. Whether she thought he'd failed her, or whether she wanted him to let her go. This, more than anything, makes him feel that she is gone.”
Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You

Laurence Galian
“Moses found the wises man in this sacred meeting place of the waters. His name is not given in the Koran, but all know him as the aforementioned great immortal Khezr. Khezr is and is not a particular person. We know now that, for example, Merlin was a title earned by a particular person. There were many Merlins among the Celts in ancient times; so, too, with Khezr.”
Laurence Galian, Beyond Duality: The Art of Transcendence

Emma Theriault, Rebel Rose

Rolandas Parafinavičius, Fotografas

“For me to keep this title of a god,long after I am gone, I must write.”
