 1- Bob Dylan

   “I waited for you, on the running boards

     Near the cypress trees, while the springtime turned

     Slowly into autumn”


 2- Dorothy Parker

“I don’t care what is written about me so long as it isn’t true.”


 3- Shel Silverstein

“Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented, Tell me I’m cute, Tell me I’m

sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I’m perfect – But tell me the truth”


 4- Annie Proulx

“I wish I knew how to quit you.” (Brokeback Mountain)



5-  e.e. cummings

“life’s not a paragraph And death i think is no parenthesis”


6- Ludmilla Petrushevskaya

“The piano—that, too, was an adventure. A little girl tried to learn to play it. Her mother insisted, forced her to sit there and practice. Nothing came of it; stubbornness won out in the end, the stubbornness that protects us from the will of others, that defends our right to live our life the way we want. Even if it means life will turn out worse than anyone planned, will turn into a poor life—but it’ll be one’s own, however it is, even without music, even without talent.”


7- Dave Eggers

“We have advantages. We have a cushion to fall back on. This is abundance. A luxury of place and time. Something rare and wonderful. It’s almost historically unprecedented. We must do extraordinary things. We have to. It would be absurd not to.”


8- Stephen Hawkings

“I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do

nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”


9- Lois Duncan

“College guys are different. They’re looking for quality.”

(I Know What You Did Last Summer)


10- Oscar Wilde, who always said it best:

“Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.”

“True friends stab you in the front.”
