    "Got that gun?" Peter says to Tobias.

    "No," says Tobias, "I figured I would shoot the bullets out of my nostrils, so I left it upstairs."

    "Oh, shut up."

    ---

    From 'Insurgent' by Veronica Roth, made me laugh. Tobias can be such a smart ass but I love him. :)

    'But nobody was moving around. There were no scary shadows. Everything lay in moonlight, and I could see the smallest things.' - 'I Could See the Smallest Things' from What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver

    '...and when something weird happens, when you find a spider in your shoe or if you take a breath and feel like a broken window...' - 'Blow Up' from Blow Up and Other Stories by Julio Cortazar

    '...and it was that moment between six and seven when every flower - roses, carnations, irises, lilac - glows; white, violet, red, deep orange; every flower seems to burn by itself, softly, purely in the misty bed...' - Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

    'So on a summers day waves collect, overbalance, and fall; collect and fall; and the whole world seems to be saying "that is all" more and more ponderously, until even the heart in the body which lies in the sun on the beach says too, that is all. Fear no more, says the heart. Fear no more, says the heart, committing its burden to some sea, which sighs collectively for all sorrows, and renews, begins, collects, lets fall.' Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

    'Mephistophelis: Why this is hell, nor am I out of it.
    Thinkest thou that I, who saw the face of God,
    And tasted the eternal joys of heaven,
    Am not tormented with a thousand hells...
    Faustus: Learn thou of Faustus manly fortitude,
    And scorn those joys thou never shalt possess.' - Doctor Faustus by Marlowe

    '...la terre couleur de sang qui roulait sur la biere de maman, la chair blanche des racines qui s'y melaient...' L'étranger by Albert Camus

    "The world breaks everyone. And afterwards, many are stronger at the broken places."

    Earnest Hemingway

    Can't recall what story it is from but it came to mind as the perfect epigram for a Friday Night Lights fan story I was working on about what happened to Julie Taylor after Matt left. It was very, very dark and very AU, but for where I wanted to take Julie the epigram was perfect.

    High above the dome, at the top of the radio mast, the red aircraft-warning lamp winked in the gray mist, as if the storm were a living beast and this were its malevolent Cyclopean eye.
    -
    When he shot her twice in the back, he half expected her to shatter into bone splinters and dust, as if she were an ancient mummy made brittle by two centuries of dehydration, but she only dropped in a pale, angular heap.
    - Dean Koontz's The Face.

    When I saw Old Mama Maltese holding her eyes shut with the lids quivering and smell away into the air, I knew she was on the scent of her second one. When she brought it in, I dug the second little grave, I was listening to her moan and choke in the weeds, dragging her belly across the ground with her two back legs timber behind her. Pulling her body with her front feet and throwing her head first to one side then the other.
    And, I was thinking.
    Is this what crazy is?

    - Bound for Glory by Woody Guthrie

    Best book ever. Hands down.

    Henry twirls me around and soon we’re dancing down Belle Plaine Avenue, no music but the sound of cars whooshing by and our own laughter, and the smell of cherry blossoms that fall like snow on the sidewalk as we dance underneath the trees.

    “They tell me I must wade into waters, where I will soon drown. Before I march in, I leave this on the shore for you. I pray you find it, sister, so you will know what was in my heart as I went under.”

    I was fine until I came to this part and then there were tears everywhere.

    "There's only one thing that will make them stop hating you. And that's being so good at what you do that they can't ignore you." Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.

    That's my favorite book of all time, despite it's lack of literary value.

    "at last no one decided
    and no one knocked
    and no one jumped up
    and no one opened
    and there stood no one
    and no one entered
    and no one said: welcome
    and no one answered: at last."
