  57. “Hey Sydney,” she said, giving me a small, crooked smile as she entered the room. Her flashing, dark eyes were friendly, but they were also assessing everything in the room, much as Eddie’s gaze was. It was a guardian thing. Rose was about my height and dressed very casually in jeans and a red tank top. But, as always, there was something as exotic and dangerous about her beauty that made her stand out from everyone else. She was like a tropical flower in this dark, stuffy room. One that could kill you.” ~ Richelle Mead
  58. “You cannot ask which system is the better because you cannot standardize one system for the whole of the world. You cannot have one stereotyped code of morality for every country.

You’ve got to deal with these things.” ~ Thabo Mbeki
  61. “I was extremely frustrated, almost at the point of giving up on coming up with a name for the project (because I’m awful at it), when I decided to play the ‘put a pen somewhere on a map with your eyes closed’ game with South Africa.

The name seemed to fit with the mood of the music, and so after a while it just stuck.” ~ St. Lucia
  62. “After Nicholas hung up the phone, he watched his mother carry buckets and garden tools across the couch grass toward a bed that would, come spring, be brightly ablaze as tropical coral with colorful arctotis, impatiens, and petunias.
