[En attente] Denny Duquette - Grey's Anatomy
It turns out sometimes you have to do the wrong thing. Sometimes you have to make a big mistake to figure out how to make things right. Mistakes are painful, but they're the only way to find out who we really are.

[En attente] Fred Rogers - Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a strange thing. It can sometimes be easier to forgive our enemies than our friends. It can be hardest of all to forgive people we love. Like all of life's important coping skills, the ability to forgive and the capacity to let go of resentments most likely take root very early in our lives.

[En attente] Ingraham Lovell - Margarita's Soul -- The Romantic Recollections of a Man of Fifty
The day that Roger and I first met is as clear in my mind as if, in the current phrase, it were but yesterday. I was a slender little lad of ten and he a great, strapping fifteen-year-old. I was trundling my hoop about the part of the schoolyard usually given over to the little fellows, as blue as indigo, homesick for my mammy-O, and secretly ashamed of the French school-boy cape I had worn at Vevay, which all my mates derided, but she in her woman's thrift had thought too good to throw aside.

[En attente] Ingraham Lovell - Margarita's Soul -- The Romantic Recollections of a Man of Fifty
Do I wish he had? God knows. It was undoubtedly the turning-point in his life and he was forty. Had he gone on to the club where I was waiting for him; had we dined, played out our rubber, dropped in at the occasional chamber concert that was our usual and almost our only dissipation in those days, I should not now be ransacking old letters and diaries from which to make this book, nor would Margarita's picture-her loveliest, as Juliet-lean toward me from the wall.

[En attente] Ahmad Saleem - Introduction
Description is a context of character, there are not enough words to describe the paradoxically intoxicated person. Under the normal circumstances, we might see them as troubled people because in their mind there is a world unknown to us, even to them.

In this paper it will be shown that according to the molecular-kinetic theory of heat, bodies of microscopically-visible size suspended in a liquid will perform movements of such magnitude that they can be easily observed in a microscope, on account of the molecular motions of heat.

Meredith Grey - Grey's Anatomy
Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we're thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we're thankful for the things we'll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.

Shirley Jackson - Journeys end - The Haunting of Hill House
Journeys end in lovers meeting; I have spent an all but sleepless night, I have told lies and made a fool of myself, and the very air tastes like wine. I have been frightened half out of my foolish wits but I have somehow earned this joy; I have been waiting for it for so long.

Shirley Jackson - Fear - The Haunting of Hill House
Fear," the doctor said, "is the relinquishment of logic, the willing relinquishing of reasonable patterns. We yield to it or we fight it, but we cannot meet it halfway.

Tom Robbins - Villa Incognito
All Carolina folk are crazy for mayonnaise, mayonnaise is as ambrosia to them, the food of their tar-heeled gods. Mayonnaise comforts them, causes the vowels to slide more musically along their slow tongues, appeasing their grease-conditioned taste buds while transporting those buds to a place higher than lard could ever hope to fly.

Tom Robbins - Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
In times such as ours, however, when there is too much order, too much management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery.

Tom Robbins - Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas
They warn us when we're kids that we're going to have to suffer, but they neglect to mention the indignity. What self-respecting fetus, if shown its future as a proctology patient, boot-camp recruit, or game show contestant, would still elect to be born?

George Orwell - 1984 - Book 1, Chapter 7, P27.
The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable... what then?

Tom Robbins - Jitterbug Perfume
As a grandiose self-deception, war is of the same magnitude as religion. We embrace war or religion - usually both at the same time - as a means of defeating death, but neither of them do a blinkin' thing but sanction dying. Throughout history, Death's best friend has been a priest with a knife.

Tom Robbins - Still Life With Woodpecker
I have learned something that many women these days never learn: Prince Charming really is a toad. And the beautiful Princess has halitosis. The bottom line is that a) people are never perfect, but love can be, b) that is the one and only way that the mediocre and the vile can be transformed, and c) doing that makes it that. Loving makes love. Loving makes itself. We waste time looking for the perfect lover instead of creating the perfect love. Wouldn't that be the way to make love stay?

Tom Robbins - Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
If we're ever going to get the world back on a natural footing, back in tune with natural rhythms, if we're going to nurture the Earth and protect it and have fun with it and learn from it - which is what mothers do with their children - then we've got to put technology (an aggressive masculine system) in its proper place, which is that of a tool to be used sparingly, joyfully, gently and only in the fullest cooperation with nature. Nature must govern technology, not the other way around.

Zac Poonen - God Needs Women
Determine with all your heart that you will be a woman after God's own heart, in these last days, in the midst of a sinful and adulterous generation and a compromising Christendom. God will give you grace for this, if you earnestly desire it yourself.

Zac Poonen - Discipleship and the Home
The strength of any church is found in the strength of its homes. If the homes are weak, the church is weak. It is not in loud noise or in melodious singing or even in good preaching that the strength of a church lies, but in the godliness of the homes that constitute that church. May we build homes in our land then that glorify our Lord.

Kingdom Hearts (Ansem) - Ansem's Speech
Don't bother. Your voice can no longer reach him where he is. His heart belongs again to darkness! All worlds begin in darkness, and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it, it grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came! You see, darkness is the heart's true essence.

Kierra Alford - Just listen
A lot of us are different, which is good we shouldn't ever all be the same. Being different is what makes us well us! And if somebody doesn't like who you leave them forget all the bad things they said and move on, because you are beautiful inside and out. No matter who says what, even if I don't know you I know you are beautiful, amazing, and awesome, always be yourself never change you for you cause I like you for you and even though I don't know you. Don't let people make fun of you!!
