1. "To remember love after long sleep; to turn again to poetry after a year in the marketplace, or to youth after resignation to drowsy and stiffening age; to remember what once you thought life could hold, after telling over with muddied and calculating fingers what it has offered; this is music, made after long silence. The soul flexes its wings, and, clumsy as any fledgling, tries the air again. I felt my way, groping back through the chords, for the passion that slept there in the harp, exploring, testing as a man test in the dark ground which once he knew in daylight. Whispers, small jags of sound, bunches of notes dragged sharply. The wires thrilled, catching the firelight, and the long running chords lapsed into the song."

-Merlin, The Hollow Hills, by Mary Stewart

2. "You're a real slave driver, Patrice," Bullet had said.

His employer laughed out loud, "Me? I think not. If I am, you're the worst slave in history of man's injustice to man."

-The Runner, by Cynthia Voigt

3. Today, My flight was being served by an obviously gay flight attendant, who seemed to put everyone in a good mood as he served us. As we were about to descend, he came on the loud speaker and said "Captain Marvey has asked me to announce that he'll be landing the big scary plane shortly, so lovely people, if you could just put your trays up, that would be super." One extremely pretty brunette refused to, stating that "In my country, I am called a Princess and I take orders from no one." To which the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat, "Well, sweet-cheeks, in my country I'm called a Queen, so I outrank you. Tray up, Bitch." Nicely done, Mr. Happy.

-My Life is Average

4. "I don't do drugs anymore 'cause I find I get the same effect just standing up really fast."

-Johnathan Katz

5. "Mental illness is a healthy response to society."

-Andy Stephenson (StoryWrite Member)

6. The fool would teach the learned.
The laborer is worthy of his hire.
The labor is in itself a pleasure.
The force of anger is broken by a soft answer.
The fox may grow gray but never good.
The gods assist the industrious.
The gods send nuts to those who have no teeth.
The good is the enemy of the best.
The greater the fool, the greater his insolence.
The half is better than the whole.
The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

-Proverbial quotes

7. Mom: Why is there a spider in my house in Animal Crossing? Oh, wait, that's a real spider! D:
