He snapped his fingers and the TV went off, releasing a small puff of smoke as the picture died. You need to deal with this. Magnus snapped his fingers again menacingly. Get up. Or you’ll be the next one to go up in smoke,” said Simon with relish. There’s no need to clarify my snap, said Magnus. “The implication was clear in the snap itself.
  3. Simone de Beauvoir – When she does not find love, she may find poetry. Because she does not act, she observes, she feels, she records; a color, a smile awakens profound echoes within her; her destiny is outside her, scattered in cities already built, on the faces of men already marked by life, she makes contact, she relishes with passion and yet in a manner more detached, more free, than that of a young man. Empty and unlimited, she seeks from within her nothingness to attain All.

  6. Rachel Reiland – You survived by seizing every tiny drop of love you could find anywhere, and milking it, relishing it, for all it was worth. And as you grew up, you sought love, anywhere you could find it, whether it was a teacher or a coach or a friend or a friend’s parents. You sought those tiny droplets of love, basking in them when you found them. They sustained you. For all these years, you’ve lived under the illusion that somehow, you made it because you were tough enough to overpower the abuse, the hatred, the hard knocks of life.

But I will fly against you, if need be, to ensure that there is a future for those who cannot fight for it themselves. Too long have we preyed on the weak, relished doing so. It is time that we became better than our fore mothers. The words she had given the Thirteen months ago. There is a better world out there,” she said again. And I will fight for it. She turned Abraxos away, toward the plunge behind them. Will you?
  9. Pauline Réage – Keep me rather in this cage, and feed me sparingly, if you dare. Anything that brings me closer to illness and the edge of death makes me more faithful.

Now you must learn to relish my tears.

Sample sentences:

  1. I ask the impossible: love me forever.  Love me when all desire is gone. Love me with the single mindedness of a monk. When the world in its entirety, and all that you hold sacred advise you against it: love me still more. When rage fills you and has no name: love me. When each step from your door to our job tires you love me; and from job to home again, love me, love me. Love me when you’re bored when every woman you see is more beautiful than the last, or more pathetic, love me as you always have: not as admirer or judge, but with the compassion you save for yourself  in your solitude. Love me as you relish your loneliness, the anticipation of your death, mysteries of the flesh, as it tears and mends. Love me as your most treasured childhood memory and if there is none to recall imagine one, place me there with you. Love me withered as you loved me new. Love me as if I were forever and I, will make the impossible a simple act, by loving you, loving you as I do
  2. Throw a stick, and the servile dog wheezes and pants and stumbles to bring it to you. The dog barks and begs and tumbles to amuse you when you crack the whip.

I carried so many home I was hunchbacked for years. Philosophy, art history, politics, social science, the poem, the essay, the grandiose play, you name them, I ate them.
  4. She was a woman with red hair and green eye, the traits which Satan supposedly relished most in mortal females.
  5. Mr. Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liver slices fried with crust crumbs, fried hen cods’ roes. Most of all he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine.
  6. Literature, real literature, must not be gulped down like some potion which may be good for the heart or good for the brain, the brain, that stomach of the soul. Literature must be taken and broken to bits, pulled apart, squashed, then its lovely reek will be smelt in the hollow of the palm, it will be munched and rolled upon the tongue with relish; then, and only then, its rare flavor will be appreciated at its true worth and the broken and crushed parts will again come together in your mind and disclose the beauty of a unity to which you have contributed something of your own blood.
  7. In this lifetime you’re nothing more than you appear to be: a stupid, selfish, ignorant, spoiled little girl who thinks the world lives or dies on whether she gets to go out with some good-looking boy at school. I’d still relish this moment killing you.
  8. Rather than loitering around, day by day, some prefer to crawl out of the shadow of their squirrel cage and try badly to cuddle up to a brighter side of life by searching out some wiggle room to empower their feeble stance, expecting to eke out some soothing moments of relish and buoyancy in the wings of their expectant quest.

  10. We often fully sense and relish the radiance of happiness only after it is has escaped through the backstage door, stealthily and silently.

  13. What Vera doesn’t know is: I’d kill to be a pickle on her Big Mac ground to relish between her perfect white teeth. I’d kill to be a bug she squishes with her holey Army-issue combat boot. But she’s too good for me. She always was.
  14. Branson ate his salad, and left the rest of his fish untouched, while Grace tucked into his steak and kidney pudding with relish. I read a while ago, he told Branson, that the French drink more red wine than the English but live longer. The Japanese eat more fish than the English but drink less wine and live longer. The Germans eat more red meat than the English, and drink more beer and they live longer too. You know the moral of this story? No, It’s not what you eat or drink – it’s speaking English that kills you.
  15. Falco’s eyes widened in fake shock. Well, then perhaps I should ask for a tour of the house. He grinned, clearly relishing Cass’s embarrassment. Can we start with your bedroom?

As John Wesley’s mother counseled him: Avoid whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, takes off your relish for spiritual things, increases the authority of the body over the mind.
