Lord Bayar made him pay for that, but afterward, Fiona didn't come down anymore, which Han appreciated." - Cinda Williams Chima

"You know?" he repeated. She smiled, so he kissed her. "You're not the Han Solo in this relationship, you know." "I'm totally the Han Solo," she whispered. It was good to hear her.

Don't be Han Solo in real life; be Han Solo on film.'" - Donald Faison

"Cold Mountain Buddhas Han Shan Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness be dancing.

"My books serve as archives of thoughts and emotions, like a tonal history that captures how I felt at a certain time of my life. It's not very informational.

"Making a record's a real fight for me. I'm constantly fighting with this thing inside of me that says I should be sitting in a room with Matthew Shipp or I should have Han Bennink on drums or this song should be playing for the next 20 minutes in my head, not a silly little pop song. It's constant." - Jason Pierce

"Alongside Han Kang, there's only one other author I've chosen to translate so far - Bae Suah. Her work is radical both stylistically and politically, influenced by her own translation practice (she's translated the likes of Kafka, Pessoa, and Sadeq Hedayat into Korean). Her language is simply extraordinary." - Deborah Smith

"When I did 'Tokyo Drift,' a lot of the philosophy that Han lived by I have actually gone through in my own life. As I got older, I realized that I really believe in those philosophies, like the importance of family." - Sung Kang

"When I started acting, I hoped I could make some kind of positive contribution to this world. When I get a letter from some kid in Nebraska saying that, prior to Han, nobody wanted to be his friend because Asians weren't cool if they weren't into martial arts - Now he's accepted and recognized as a human being. That's pretty awesome, right?" - Sung Kang

"More than 90% of Chinese believe themselves to be Han. Of course, such a vast population is derived from countless different races, but because China has enjoyed such a long and continuous history as a polity, there has been thousands of years of mixing, melding and assimilation." - Martin Jacques

"One of the unique features of China is that, notwithstanding the fact that it has a population of 1.3 billion, around 92% regard themselves as Han Chinese. This is quite different from the world's other most populous countries, such as India, the U.S. and Indonesia, which are ethnically diverse." - Martin Jacques

"Seeking the Cave is part travelogue, part literary history, and part spiritual journey. James Lenfestey is a lively and entertaining tour guide. Modest, funny, curious, and wide open to the world, he gives us perceptive glimpses of Chinese culture, ancient to contemporary, and into what it means to be a poet, both now and twelve centuries ago. The account of his quest to find Han Shan's cave is a delight from beginning to end." - Chase Twichell

"Han spotted a child?s homespun dolly in the ditch, pressed into the mud. He reined in, meaning to climb down and fetch it so he could clean it up for his little sister. Then he remembered that Mari was dead and had no need of dollies anymore. Grief was like that. It gradually faded into a dull ache, until some simple sight or sound or scent hit him like a hammer blow." - Cinda Williams Chima

"Since I started making films, I've been a nut for dialogue. When I first saw Star Wars when I was 12 years old, I came home and recited all of the lines from it. Before I talked about Death Stars exploding and Tie Fighters I was talking about how funny Princess Leia was and how sarcastic Han Solo was. So to me that's always the most important thing, and I love hearing great actors say great lines." - Bryan Singer

"[After playing Indiana Jones and Han Solo] hero image concerns me a little, though not for my sake. All it means to me is that I have a responsibility not to get caught doing anything terrible and thereby jeopardise my credentials. Not that I do terrible things, like running over dogs or anything like that. It just makes you think twice before you say or do things in public." - Harrison Ford

"I have a suspicion, because if you look at the whole, all the [Star Wars ] movies, the backlog of every one of these movies, there's a lot of great stuff, but one might not be not as good with the writing in this or the acting in that or the directing in that, this has great actors, great directors, great script, and I really feel like we're gonna make the best one [movie with Young Han Solo]." - Woody Harrelson

"The first time I met Harrison, I think, was at the very first read through of the script. As anyone would be, I was a bit nervous before meeting him. I mean, it's Han Solo, so it was quite crazy. But once you get to know him, he really is such an amazing person. He's such an amazing actor as well. As I said before, his presence really does get the best out of you as an actor." - Asa Butterfield

"Hwang Jung-eun is one of the brightest stars of the new South Korean generation - she's Han Kang's favourite, and the novel we're publishing scooped the prestigious Bookseller's Award, for critically-acclaimed fiction that also has a wide popular appeal. She stands out for her focus on social minorities - her protagonists are slum inhabitants, trans women, orphans - and for the way she melds this hard-edged social critique with obliquely fantastical elements and offbeat dialogue." - Deborah Smith

"Han spotted a child's homespun dolly in the ditch, pressed into the mud. He reined in, meaning to climb down and fetch it so he could clean it up for his little sister. Then he remembered that Mari was dead and had no need of dollies anymore. Grief was like that. It gradually faded into a dull ache, until some simple sight or sound or scent hit him like a hammer blow." - Cinda Williams Chima

"To put it in a nutshell, the Central and South American high cultures of antiquity were entirely worthy of comparison with what the Old World had achieved by the time of the Han, the Gupta, and the Hellenistic age. The fact is that the Amerindian high cultures were a human modality of their own, and those Spaniards who came among them first would have had the sensation, if they had ever heard of such literature, of treading in a world of imaginative science fiction. But it was real, and the Amerindian achievements deserve all our sympathy and praise." - Joseph Needham

"She padded toward Han, barefoot, like a faerie startled out of a forest bower, bewitching mix of clan and flatland beauty." - Cinda Williams Chima

"El proposito de la vida es ser devuelto al amor, momento a momento. Para alcanzar este proposito, el individuo debe reconocer que es absolutamente responsable de haber creado su vida tal cual es. Debe llegar a comprender que son sus pensamientos los que han creado su vida de la manera que es, momento a momento. El problema no son las personas, los lugares ni las situaciones, sino los pensamientos que tenemos acerca de ellos. El individuo debe darse cuenta por fin de que no existe ningun «ahi fuera». DR. IHALEAKALA HEW LEN" - Joe Vitale

"Whoa, Rebecca," Talia said smiling even wider, "Walking on the wild side, are we?" Raisa seemed to think the situation needed more explaining. "He - uh - I'm tutoring him." "She is," Han said solemnly. "She's very good. I'm learning a lot." Pearlie snickered. "What's she teaching you?" "Well," Han said, "we're jumping around a lot." - Cinda Williams Chima

"Oh, I am getting married," Raisa said sleepily. "You promised me that if I agreed to marry you, that you would make it happen." She extended her hand, the one with the ring Han had given her, and waved it under his nose. "So. It's time to pay up." - Cinda Williams Chima

"As for my family, my father was Danel; he died as a mercenary in the southern wars," Han went on. "My mother's name was Sarah, called Sali, and my sister was Mari. They died last summer. But then, you already knew that. Every time you forget, I'll remind you. That's the blood sacrifice I made to be here, and that's enough." - Cinda Williams Chima

"If he even survives." She shivered, and Amon put his arm around her, drawing her into his steady warmth. "It's that bad?" Raisa nodded. "He looked...he looked awful, Amon. Willo doesn't know if he'll...She's worried about him. My mother died, and I never got to tell her that I loved her, that I finally understood - just a little anyway. If Han dies too, I don't know what I'll do." - Cinda Williams Chima

"The next chamber is full of songbirds, if I remember right. Their music is like turtleweed. It will put you to sleep if you listen to it. They sleep most of the time, so the best thing is to pass through without waking them up. If they do awaken, then you must sing loud enough to drown out their music." "Great," Han said. "Whose idea was that?" "It seemed like a good idea at the time," Crow said. "I was an excellent singer." - Cinda Williams Chima

"-Porque posee usted la mas maravillosa juventud, y la juventud es lo mas precioso que se puede poseer. -No lo siento yo asi, lord Henry. -No; no lo siente ahora. Pero algun dia, cuando sea viejo y feo y este lleno de arrugas, cuando los pensamientos le hayan marcado la frente con sus pliegues y la pasion le haya quemado los labios con sus odiosas brasas, lo sentira, y lo sentira terriblemente. Ahora, dondequiera que vaya, seduce a todo el mundo. Sera siempre asi?... Posee usted un rostro extraordinariamente agraciado, senor Gray. No frunza el ceno. Es cierto. Y la belleza es una manifestacion de genio; esta incluso por encima del genio, puesto que no necesita explicacion. Es uno de los grandes dones de la naturaleza, como la luz del sol, o la primavera, o el reflejo en aguas oscuras de esa concha de plata a la que llamamos luna. No admite discusion. Tiene un derecho divino de soberania. Convierte en principes a quienes la poseen. Se sonrie? ¡Ah! Cuando la haya perdido no sonreira... La gente dice a veces que la belleza es solo superficial. Tal vez. Pero, al menos, no es tan superficial como el pensamiento. Para mi la belleza es la maravilla de las maravillas. Tan solo las personas superficiales no juzgan por las apariencias. El verdadero misterio del mundo es lo visible, no lo que no se ve... Si, senor Gray, los dioses han sido buenos con usted. Pero lo que los dioses dan, tambien lo quitan, y muy pronto. Solo dispone de unos pocos anos en los que vivir de verdad, perfectamente y con plenitud. Cuando se le acabe la juventud desaparecera la belleza, y entonces descubrira de repente que ya no le quedan mas triunfos, o habra de contentarse con unos triunfos insignificantes que el recuerdo de su pasado esplendor hara mas amargos que las derrotas. Cada mes que expira lo acerca un poco mas a algo terrible. El tiempo tiene celos de usted, y lucha contra sus lirios y sus rosas. Se volvera cetrino, se le hundiran las mejillas y sus ojos perderan el brillo. Sufrira horriblemente... ¡Ah! Disfrute plenamente de la juventud mientras la posee. No despilfarre el oro de sus dias escuchando a gente aburrida, tratando de redimir a los fracasados sin esperanza, ni entregando su vida a los ignorantes, los anodinos y los vulgares. Esos son los objetivos enfermizos, las falsas ideas de nuestra epoca. ¡Viva! ¡Viva la vida maravillosa que le pertenece! No deje que nada se pierda. Este siempre a la busca de nuevas sensaciones. No tenga miedo de nada... Un nuevo hedonismo: eso es lo que nuestro siglo necesita. Usted puede ser su simbolo visible. Dada su personalidad, no hay nada que no pueda hacer. El mundo le pertenece durante una temporada... En el momento en que lo he visto he comprendido que no se daba usted cuenta en absoluto de lo que realmente es, de lo que realmente puede ser. Habia en usted tantas cosas que me encantaban que he sentido la necesidad de hablarle un poco de usted. He pensado en la tragedia que seria malgastar lo que posee. Porque su juventud no durara mucho, demasiado poco, a decir verdad. Las flores sencillas del campo se marchitan, pero florecen de nuevo. Las flores del codeso seran tan amarillas el proximo junio como ahora. Dentro de un mes habra estrellas moradas en las clematides y, ano tras ano, la verde noche de sus hojas sostendra sus flores moradas. Pero nosotros nunca recuperamos nuestra juventud. El pulso alegre que late en nosotros cuando tenemos veinte anos se vuelve perezoso con el paso del tiempo. Nos fallan las extremidades, nuestros sentidos se deterioran. Nos convertimos en espantosas marionetas, obsesionados por el recuerdo de las pasiones que nos asustaron en demasia, y el de las exquisitas tentaciones a las que no tuvimos el valor de sucumbir. ¡Juventud! ¡Juventud! ¡No hay absolutamente nada en el mundo excepto la juventud!" - Oscar Wilde
