PE! This word was comprised of two single letters, which would normally not cause anyone any trouble. They were two single letters that were usually associated with the further words of health and extended life and therefore, had a positive reputation.

Every time they were mentioned, I would sigh in displeasure, my heart rate would increase and I would feel lightheaded. After all, in my mind, PE = exercise and exercise = torture!

Alex Milton
I've never felt erotica was a 'niche market'.50 years ago, Earth's population was 3 billion. Now it's 7 billion. That tells me a lot of people are interested in sex...
Alex Morritt
Casting a curious gaze down on planet Earth, extra-terrestrial beings could well be forgiven for assuming that we humans are programmed in every move we make, by a palm-sized, oblong, slab of glass. More perplexing than that, who on earth could convince them otherwise ?

Alexander McCall Smith
Mma Ramotswe tucked the cheque safely away in her bodice. Modern business methods were all very well, she thought, but when it came to the safeguarding of money there were some places which had yet to be bettered.
Alexander McCall Smith
So it was perfectly possible that there were men who liked shopping, men who understood exactly what it was all about, but Mma Ramotwe had yet to meet such a man. Maybe they existed elsewhere - in France, perhaps - but they did not seem to be much in evidence in Botswana.
Alexander McCall Smith

Six a.m.! Xander cried. I know that's a number on my clock, but I've never actually been awake to personally witness it!
Alice Henderson
Boys, Buffy hissed through clenched teeth, being quiet is an important part of sneaking.Oh, sorry, Xander said, reducing his voice to a whisper.Besides, ritual sacrifice is a religious rite, Giles went on quietly. They wouldn't sacrifice just anyone at random. It's far more likely they'd suspect you of being a Roman spy scouting for the invasion and just outright kill you.Oh great! Great! Way to be encouraging Giles. And I suppose you'll just watch that happen, in your Watchery way.
Alison Arngrim
Michael tousled my hair and said, Remember, no more skateboards, right? And then this gem: If you ever break your arm skateboarding again... He paused, flashing me a dimpled Charles Ingalls grin, which then suddenly disappeared. I'll break the other one.

Bowman turned his back on her and began to search the place methodically and exhaustively.

Alistair MacLean

Ally Carter
the only way Bex would miss this would be if she were unconscious. And tied up. And in a concrete bunker. In Siberia.
Ally Carter
You really saw some? Liz said an hour later. Sure, we had the stereo blaring and the shower running, but Liz still whispered, They really...exist? Liz, I whispered back, they're not unicorns. No, Bex said flatly, they're boys. And they're...good.

Álvaro Mutis
Weather is a purely personal matter. There is no such thing as a climate that is cold or hot, good or bad, healthy or unhealthy. People take it upon themselves to create a fantasy in their imagination and call it weather. There's only one climate in the world, but the message that nature sends is interpreted according to strictly personal, non-transferable rules.

Last time they fixed me up with a fairy.Steven snorted. I thought you didn't like labels.No. He was an actual fairy, you know, from Faeland.That got Steven's full attention. What happened?Anthony shrugged. Let's just say it didn't work out.
Ambrose Bierce
MAN, n. An animal so lost in rapturous contemplation of what he thinks he is as to overlook what he indubitably ought to be. His chief occupation is extermination of other animals and his own species, which, however, multiplies with such insistent rapidity as to infest the whole habitable earth and Canada.

Andrea K. Höst
I blame Doctor Who. Mr Spock. The Scooby Gang: both the ones in the Mystery Machine and the ones with the stakes. I've spent my life with stories of people who don't walk away, who go back for their friends, who make that last stand. I've been brainwashed by Samwise Gamgee.
Andrew Masterson
I left the warehouse at 8.00am. I don't believe in 8.00am. It exists, though. 8.00am is incontrovertible evidence that evil dwells in the world.

I like my tea like I like my men, I say. With the last name Grey. But I realize that's too forward, so I add, Black.He raises an eyebrow.I mean, not that I exclusively like black men, I say, trying to recover. I like other kinds of tea. And men.Have you ever tasted...white tea, Anna?
Andrew Shaffer
My shift isn't over until six, I say glumly.Hold on, he says. He pulls a Blackberry from his coat pocket and taps out a text. It buzzes, and he taps out another text before stashing it back in his pocket. I think you can take the rest of the afternoon off.I only have a week left, but my boss would kill me, I say.I'm your boss, Anna.What do you mean?There's that smile again, the one with all those teeth. I just bought Walmart, he says.
Andrew Shaffer
For the first time since he showed up in my checkout lane, I let my eyes wander the full length of his body. The bulge in his running down the side of his pants leg is quite noticeable; either he has a banana in his pocket, or he's happy to see me. Then I notice a similar bulge running down the side of his other pants leg. Either he has two bananas in his pockets, or he has two erections.
Andy Paine
It was a sweet smile, but it hid menace, like the kind dentists gave.

Andy Weir
Disco. God damn it Lewis.
Angela Carter
Child, if such folks awe you, then picture them on the lavatory, straining, constipated. They will at once seem small, pathetic, manageable. And she whispered to me a great, universal truth: THE BOWELS ARE GREAT LEVELLERS.
Angela Carter
These days, you could stage a three-point orgy in the garden and nobody would bat an eye...
Angela Carter
The lovely Hazard girls', they used to call them. Huh. Lovely is as lovely does; if they looked like what they behave like, they'd frighten little children.

Arab' is the new four-letter word, didn't you know?
Anita Diamant
Zilpah had little use for men, whom she described as hairy, crude, and half human. Women needed men to make babies and to move heavy objects, but otherwise she didn't understand their purpose, much less appreciate their charms.

Ann Patchett
The entire time Albie followed Beverly around the house doing what the children referred to as the stripper soundtrack:Boom chicka-boom, boom-boom chicka-boom.When their mother stopped walking the soundtrack stopped.

Smoky knickers. Always said you were hot stuff, he said. I rolled my eyes and shook my head at the same time. It made me so dizzy that I almost fell over. Men.
Anne Brontë
Preserve me from such cordiality! It is like handling briar-roses and may-blossoms - bright enough to the eye, and outwardly soft to the touch, but you know there are thorns beneath, and every now and then you feel them too; and perhaps resent the injury by crushing them in till you have destroyed their power, though somewhat to the detriment of your own fingers.
Anne Frank

Someone once told me that we move when it becomes less painful than staying where we are.
Anne Rice
Do you know what I think about crying? I think some people have to learn to do it. But once you learn, once you know how to really cry, there's nothing quite like it. I feel sorry for those who don't know the trick. It's like whistling or singing.
Annoying Orange

Anoop Raghav
it seems politicians projected the powerful brand called Ambedkar, rather than his ideologies. Like the ad says 'name is enough.
Antal Szerb
Tell me,' he asked, with some embarassment, as we strolled along: 'you're a bloody German, aren't you?''Oh, no. I'm Hungarian.''Hungarian?''Hungarian.''What's that? Is that a country? Or you are just having me on?'Not at all. On my word of honour, it is a country.''And where do you Hungarians live?''In Hungary. Between Austria, Romania, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia'.'Come off it. Those places were made up by Shakespeare.

The platform underneath the balloon fell on her as she was trying to escape, she explained. She was crushed.I'd have been disappointed too.
Anthony Powell
She scarcely spoke at all and might have been one of those huge dolls which, when inclined backwards, say Ma-ma or Pa-pa: though impossible to imagine in any position so undignified as that required for the mechanism to produce these syllables.
Anthony Powell
What a shabby lot of highbrows have turned out tonight, he said, when he saw us. It makes me ashamed to be one.

There is, perhaps, no greater hardship at present inflicted on mankind in civilised and free countries than the necessity of listening to sermons.
Anton Chekhov
Lebedev: France has a clear and defined policy... The French know what they want. They just want to wipe out the Krauts, finish, but Germany, my friend, is playing a very different tune. Germany has many more birds in her sights than just France...Shabelsky: Nonsense! ...In my view the German are cowards and the French are cowards... They're just thumbing their noses at each other. Believe me, things will stop there. They won't fight.Borkin: And as I see it, why fight? What's the point of these armaments, congresses, expenditures? You know what I'd do? I'd gather together dogs from all over the country, give them a good dose of rabies and let them loose in enemy country. In a month all my enemies would be running rabid.
Aravind Adiga
The two of them kept an eye open for every tree or temple we passed by, and turned to me for a reaction of piety which I gave them, of course, and with growing elaborateness: first just touching my eye, then my neck, then my clavicle, and even my nipples.  They were convinced I was the most religious servant on earth.
Aravind Adiga
The worst part of being a driver is that you have hours to yourself while waiting for your employer. You can spend this time chitchatting and scratching your groin. You can read murder and rape magazines.

I am just a murderer!

...Recognising, as I do, that you are the second highest expert in Europe--Indeed, sir! May I inquire who has the honour to be the first? Asked Holmes, with some asperity.To the man of precised, scientific mind the work of Monsieur Bertillon must always appeal strongly.Then had you not better consult him?I said, sir, to the precisely scientific mind. But as a practical man of affairs it is acknowledged that you stand alone. I trust, sir, that I have not inadvertently--Just a little, said Holmes.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Well, Watson, what do you make of it?'Holmes was sitting with his back to me, and I had given him no sign of my occupation.'How did you know what I was doing? I believe you have eyes in the back of your head.''I have, at least, a well-polished, silver-plated coffee-pot in front of me', said he.

She went to the market and left all the breakfast dishes there and said she'd do them later. I know what she wanted. She expected me to do them. Well, I'll fool her. I'll leave them just where they are.
