Nancy Pickard
“He didn't try to explain ozone to her, or how raindrops hit rocks, releasing the fragrance of oils that plants had rubbed on them, or how spores in the ground give up their own earthy scent in the rain. He just took her out and let her sniff and sniff until she admitted that, yes, it smelled good outside after a thunderstorm.”
Nancy Pickard, The Scent of Rain and Lightning

Larry McMurtry
“Maude Jones, had killed herself with a shotgun one morning, leaving a note which merely said, 'Can't stand listening to this wind no more.”
Larry McMurtry, Lonesome Dove

Ernest Hemingway
“In the morning I walked down the Boulevard to the rue Soufflot for coffee and brioche. It was a fine morning. The horse-chestnut trees in the Luxembourg gardens were in bloom. There was the pleasant early-morning feeling of a hot day. I read the papers with the coffee and then smoked a cigarette. The flower-women were coming up from the market and arranging their daily stock. Students went by going up to the law school, or down to the Sorbonne. The Boulevard was busy with trams and people going to work.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

Ernest Hemingway
“I put my arm around her and felt our hearts beating through our sweaters and I brought my right hand up and felt her neck smooth and the hair thick against it under my fingers that were shaking.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Larry McMurtry
“Incompetents invariably made trouble for people other than themselves.”
Larry McMurtry, Lonesome Dove
