I turned it over, and gave an exclamation of surprise. There was a full-page picture of the most extraordinary creature that I had ever seen. It was the wild dream of an opium smoker, a vision of delirium. The head was like that of a fowl, the body that of a bloated lizard, the trailing tail was furnished with upward-turned spikes, and the curved back was edged with a high serrated fringe, which looked like a dozen cocks' wattles placed behind each other. In front of this creature was an absurd mannikin, or dwarf, in human form, who stood staring at it. ~ The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle And so it was that I found myself that foggy November evening pursuing the Camberwell tram with my heart glowing within me, and with the eager determination that not another day should elapse before I should find some deed which was worthy of my lady. But who--who in all this wide world could ever have imagined the incredible shape which that deed was to take, or the strange steps by which I was led to the doing of it? ~ The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte Reflect: we are well equipped, well fortified, we number 54. Fifty-four what? Men? No, MINDS--the capablest in the world; a force against which mere animal might may no more hope to prevail than may the idle waves of the sea hope to prevail against the granite barriers of England. ~ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain "The average man don't like trouble and danger." ~ The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain "As long as the heart beats, as long as body and soul keep together, I cannot admit that any creature endowed with a will has need to despair of life." ~ Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne Was I to believe him in earnest in his intention to penetrate to the centre of this massive globe? Had I been listening to the mad speculations of a lunatic, or to the scientific conclusions of a lofty genius? Where did truth stop? Where did error begin? ~ Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne "Axel," replied the Professor with perfect coolness, "our situation is almost desperate; but there are some chances of deliverance, and it is these that I am considering. If at every instant we may perish, so at every instant we may be saved. Let us then be prepared to seize upon the smallest advantage." ~ Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne It swam crossways in the direction of the Nautilus with great speed, watching us with its enormous staring green eyes. Its eight arms, or rather feet, fixed to its head, that have given the name of cephalopod to these animals, were twice as long as its body, and were twisted like the furies' hair. ~ 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne The wind is rushing after us, and the clouds are flying after us, and the moon is plunging after us, and the whole wild night is in pursuit of us; but, so far we are pursued by nothing else. ~ A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
