Ok, for the sake of interest I will be posting a new quote from the best authors ever every week or so.

"May you live every day of your life"
"Vision is the art of seeing things invisible."
"When a great genius appears in the world you may know him by this sign; that the dunces are all in confederacy against him."
"Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old."
"Books, the children of the brain."
"No wise man ever wished to be younger."
"For in reason, all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery."

—Jonathan Swift

Life rarely ends up how you think it will. First I was an honorable member of Flint's crew, then, a poor, useless cook. And just when I thought fortune had struck me again, with the sailing of the Hispaniola, I now found myself running an eating establishment once more.
    I was not a bitter man by character. But anger can seep into your bones after years of stewing on it, like a marinade seeps into meat. All...

    The two of them walked, on and on and on as if they could not see anymore. They almost couldn't; the battle had blinded them so that their only vision was that of blood and death.
    Malia shivered, looking at the harsh moonlight above. She wished the sun would return, to burn away their pain, their regrets, their failure. They were supposed to serve their country, not let it fall into defeat.
    "Come on,...

The Shadow Runner

FREE WRITING

    She ran, slipping from shadow to shadow, pressing her body against walls, the cold brick seeping through her thin jacket. She was a creature of the night, ducking her head when lights shone in her eyes, dashing from alley to alley so that nobody saw her. Her sneakers were silent, not even screeching on the pavement. Nobody seemed to be able to see her, not even the drug dealers and criminals of the inner city, who noticed everyone. ...

Zane would never face anyone again. Not after what he did, not after he saw Gramp's face as he left his grandparents' store.
    It had been Gavin, he told himself again and again as he ran, ran nowhere, just anywhere that his mom couldn't find him. Gavin McCraig, that tall, blond Apollo, who somehow bewitched everyone he came across, every student in Daniel Boone High, and every teacher too. And he had also bewitched Zane--goody old never-breaks-the-rules Zane,...
