Deb Caletti
“I used to think that finding the right one was about the man having a list of certain qualities. If he has them, we'd be compatible and happy. Sort of a checkmark system that was a complete failure. But I found out that a healthy relationship isn't so much about sense of humor or intelligence or attractive. It's about avoiding partners with harmful traits and personality types. And then it's about being with a good person. A good person on his own, and a good person with you. Where the space between you feels uncomplicated and happy. A good relationship is where things just work. They work because, whatever the list of qualities, whatever the reason, you happen to be really, really good together.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

James Patterson
“It was a pretty complete list. The kind of list one makes when one cannot fall asleep because one's thoughts keep swirling through one's brain like a bunch of sparrows on crack.”
James Patterson, Nevermore

Alysha Speer
“I did not ask for consciousness, yet it came to me.
And I had to know.
Once again, I crawled away from my bed and pushed the computer cord back into the socket.
It took three minutes.
I quickly identified myself and put in my password.
Then it thought.
I wanted to bounce impatiently, but I couldn’t make myself move.
At last, I found the internet, and I typed in a name, on the company page, under my account.
I searched ‘images’.
And there, on the screen in front of me, was the most beautiful person I’d ever seen.
I couldn’t stop the tears from welling up and spilling over as I stared back at the smiling face.
It couldn’t be him.
It was.
Derek Erickson.
And I was going to kill him.”
Alysha Speer, Sharden

Elisa Nader
“What is the matter with you?"
"You want an alphabetical list?”

Sarah Dessen
“Restoring order of my personal universe suddenly seemed imperative, as I refolded my T-shirts, stuffed the toes of my shoes with tissue paper, and arranged all the bills in my secret stash box facing the same way, instead of tossed in sloppy and wild, as if by my evil twin. All week, I kept making lists and crossing things off them, ending each day with a sense of great accomplishment eclipsed only by complete and total exhaustion.”
Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

Please make a list of every possession you consider essential to your life.

I take a deep breath and pick up my pen.”
J.P. Delaney, The Girl Before

Benedict Jacka
“As I walked, I started making a list of everyone in the mage world whom I’d opposed, fought with, or otherwise irritated. After I ran out of fingers to count on I decided to limit the number to people I’d pissed off relatively recently.”

“It is interesting how - depending on the person in power - our LGBT issues are either right at the top of the list - or right at the very bottom. And almost always for exactly the wrong reasons.”

“I am Orafoura, but you can call me Jarod Kintz. I’m fairly proud to proclaim that Dora J. Arod has me on her short list of “World’s worst writers.” The list couldn’t get any shorter, because I’m the only name on it. I should tell her to stop calling it a list, and change the title to “World’s worst writer.” If you’re wondering why I rate all my work one star, it’s because the rating system doesn’t have a zero star option, or better yet, go into negative numbers.”

Jill Shalvis
“You have a taboo list?” Jade asked.

“You don’t?” Lilah asked.

Jade bit her lower lip and Adam laughed. “Jade has a list for everything.”

“True,” Dell said, studying her, getting nothing from her expression. She had quite the game face, his Jade. “You do, you have lists for everything.”

“Not everything.”

“Jade, you have a list for every situation, big or small, from when to brush your teeth, to how to handle every potential patient to cross my door. Hell, you’ve got a list on what’s in your purse and my office fridge and—”

“And don’t forget the list on how many different ways I could kill you,” she said, sipping her drink.”

“But perhaps people who liked to write aways made lists! Just for the fun of it.”

Wiesław Myśliwski
“No, i prawdziwy list musi być pisany ręcznie. Słowo pisane ręcznie jest bowiem innym słowem niż na maszynie czy komputerze. To jakby krwi własnej pieczęć.”
Wiesław Myśliwski, Ostatnie rozdanie

“My next option is to only write a list of the books I like, but then again, I don’t read a book I don’t like so it doesn’t solve any of my problems.”

Christina Engela
“Nothing unusual was noted during the voyage, in fact everything ran smoothly until Security alerted Biscay about the stiff in cabin 407. Nobody heard or saw anything suspicious. None of the passengers were missing or acting suspiciously. No airlock doors were opened or any transports allowed since their last stop four days prior. There were no notorious names on the passenger list, nor any unsavory persons among the ranks of his crew. In fact, the ship’s commander had never even seen a dead body in real – um, life before. And yet, almost magically, there it was.”
Christina Engela, Dead Man's Hammer

“If you list down whatever you didn’t get to do, then whatever you did won’t feel like it mattered.”

“Our prayers are something akin to delivering a list, verses surrendering a life. The former will always leave me creating the next list, while the latter will leave me creating a new life.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Invest in yourself, invest in today if you want to build a better tomorrow. Nothing will come from nothing. You have to be active in your own betterment, in the betterment of your life. You have to do what you can today instead of putting it off until tomorrow. Do what you can each day. Match the energy of the day to what you CAN do, rather than what you can't. Make a list of tasks that you will not neglect. What really matters to you? What really matters to you in terms of the future you want to build? Do that. Do something for your future every single day. Success is found in diligence and perseverance. Keep going, keep investing in yourself. Your life will benefit from it!”
Akiroq Brost

Deyth Banger
“It's very foolish from your side to think that you are free.

You Obey language

POV: There are rules in each language, obeying... is slavery.... = FREEDOM - Illusion

You follow traditions:

POV: By Obeying traditions, is = slavery.... = FREEDOM - Illusion


The list could continue, but we don't have so much time to talk about it.”
Deyth Banger
