“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

Erich Maria Remarque
“A crude age. Peace is stabilized with cannon and bombers, humanity with concentration camps and pogroms. We're living in a time when all standards are turned upside-down, Kern.

Erich Maria Remarque, Flotsam

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“You might think of a thought as an invisible, innocuous little thing. Something that barely exists. But a thought is something hard to conceal. Hold a thought and it melts all over your hands. Touch something else and now you’ve left traces of it. Hide it under your shirt and it bleeds through.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Waking Up at Rembrandt's

Leigh Bardugo
“THE SERVANTS CALLED them malenchki, little ghosts, because they were the smallest and the youngest, and because they haunted the Duke’s house like giggling phantoms, darting in and out of rooms, hiding in cupboards to eavesdrop, sneaking into the kitchen to steal the last of the summer peaches.”
Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone

“The phrase ‘Boys will be boys,’ reflects that a male child is expected to be unpredictable and occasionally troublesome.”

Lisa Kleypas
“A pity that she gets so upset about little things, isn't it?"
"Like the time we sneaked the greased piglet into Mrs. Astor's parlor."
Smiling reminiscently, Lillian knelt before the door and worked the pin into the lock. "You know, I've always wondered why Mother didn't appreciate that we did it in her defense. Something had to be done after Mrs. Astor wouldn't invite Mother to her party."
"I think Mother's point was that putting livestock in someone's house does little to recommend us as future party guests."
"Well, I didn't think that was nearly as bad as the time we set off the Roman candle in the store on Fifth Avenue."
"We were obligated to do that, after that salesman had been so rude.”
Lisa Kleypas, It Happened One Autumn

“Mr & Mrs Love by Stewart Stafford

The elephant in town remembered,
Mr & Mrs Love were stony pariahs,
Gossip branded them the greatest,
"See You Next Tuesdays" around.

They repeatedly bounced cheques,
Juggled their finances in tax havens,
Pledged charity money and reneged,
Refused to give gifts or Halloween candy.

Then the piper called for his payment,
It came on a day of more wrongdoing,
Served a hefty portion of just desserts,
With a surprise audit by Mr & Mrs IRS.
