Charm is often despised but I can never see why. No one has it who isn't capable of genuinely liking others, at least at the actual moment of meeting and speaking. Charm is always genuine; it may be superficial but it isn't false.
P.D. James (The Children of Men)
You didn’t look at Xan and think, “Gosh, I want to make love to him” or “Wouldn’t it be nice to have some sex with that guy”. No. You took one look at Xan and you fell to your quivering knees, thinking, “Holy shit, I need that man to fuck me.

I love you, Grandmama.” “I know, darling,” Xan wheezed. “I love . . .” And she drifted away, loving everything.
Kelly Barnhill (The Girl Who Drank the Moon)
From the first moment I saw you in your gilded box the young tyrant who sent me to die you have ruled all my thoughts. I hated that you were so beautiful. I had no idea you were the incredible being you are. Give me all the beats of your heart and I will spend all my days trying to make up for what I've done to you and all my nights worshipping you. Xan

Some of us," Xan said, "choose love over power. Indeed, most of us do.

The creature had nut-brown skin mixed with patches of ash. It was human-sized and formed, but its skin looked like the bark of an old, old tree. About the same height as Donna, it was spindly with arms and legs that were all joints and angles. Its face was narrow and pointed, with hair on top of its head like thick moss and narrow black eyes that glinted even in the dim light of the room. The thing’s body was clothed in lichen and moss, with vines twining around its sharp limbs. The creature opened its lipless mouth, a dark slash across its twisted face. Donna’s mind flashed back to the party and the shadow she’d seen sliding through the darkness outside Xan’s house. She hadn’t been imagining things, after all. The wood elves had returned to the city.

I'll even let her tie me to a chair if it'll make her feel better.

I have been asleep. I have been lulled by my love for Xan. I am meant to be in the world - and I have not been. Not for ages. Shame on me.
Kelly Barnhill (The Girl Who Drank the Moon)
I'd do it all again," he whispered, crying as he cradled me against his chest." I'd go through the hell of losing you to Xan, I'd welcome being cut off from my family and turning into this... this animal. I'd happily deal with all that pain as long as it led me right back here, right back to you. It was all worth it, Trinity, just to be with you. To be loved by you.

It's just a little Xananigans," Tera declares proudly. "Oh hell," Ethan mutters. "She's got a word for it." Xan's grinning proudly as he throws his arm around Tera and kisses her temple. "She participates. Of course she's going to have a word for it.
Anne Mercier (The Rockstar Series Bundle: Books 1-14 Limited Edition)
Hubris you say, brother? Please, tell us the nature of the prince's actions against you. Let everyone know exactly how Prince Styxx offended you." Bethany Disguised as Athena "He has held himself up as a god. His arrogance and pride are an affront to us all." Apollo "Held himself up as a god? Pray tell, when was this? .... Ah, yes, I remember... It was when he dared to slay your Atlantean grandson during battle. Is that not right, brother? I'm sure, like me, you remember that day well. The Atlanteans, led to our shores by your own blood kin, were slaughtering hundreds of Greeks until the beach sands turned red from good Greek blood. The onslaught was so fierce that entire veteran regiments fled from the Atlanteans and cowered. Even the brave, noble Dorians pulled back in fear. But not Prince Styxx. He rode in like a lion and jumped from his horse to save the life of a young shield-bearer who was about to be killed by one of the Atlantean giants." Bethany/Athena Bethany swept her gaze around the people there, who were completely silent now. "And with reckless disregard for his own life and limb, this prince picked the boy up and put him on the back of his royal steed and told him to ride to safety. He spent the rest of the day fighting on foot. Not as a prince or a god, but as a mere, heroic Greek soldier." She turned back to Apollo. "His actions so enraged the Atlantean gods that they turned all of their animosity toward him. And still Prince Styxx fought on for his people, wounded, bloody, and tired. He never backed off or backed down. Not even when your own grandson almost buried his axe through the prince's skull. He hit Styxx's hoplon so hard, it splintered a portion of it off. And as Xan held the prince down, the prince, who was barely more than a child, managed to stab him through the ribs. But now that I think about it, you don't remember that day, do you, Apollo? You weren't even there when it was fought, but later that very night-
Sherrilyn Kenyon (Styxx (Dark-Hunter, #22))
Her gaze follows my every move. I think she can feel something is weird but hasn’t put her finger on it yet. Maybe she’s seen my fangs and written them off as gimmick. I fucking love gimmicks. They’re so convenient to hide behind.
Carrie Clevenger (Just My Blood Type)
Xanthippe recognized it.” “She would,” his mother said. “She once called for its destruction.” “And you didn’t think she’d wonder why I was in possession of it?” She shrugged. “Xan was my backup plan if you were too slow.” His mother had basically planned to set a half-mad dragon on him. She didn’t care if it would have made him look like an idiot: What do you mean Tempus? I’ve made no Tempus. I’m wearing my mother’s diamond chain. Why? She told me to. If it weren’t for the bitter smell of fire surrounding them, he might’ve laughed at the absurdity of it. Lady Voclain was more devious and ruthless than the rest of the Bloodkin put together. Her own son!
Erin Kellison (Awakened by Fire (Dragons of Bloodfire, #2))
Vaxtında edə biləcəyimiz şeyləri etməyəndə hansısa canlar alınmamalıdır. Bizim qərarlarımız günahsız bir insanın həyatından daha önəmli ola bilməz. Mən bunu heç cürə anlamıram. İnsanlar bütün tarix boyu, onsuz da, yetərincə qurbanlar veriblər, yetərincə əziyyət çəkiblər, iztirablar görüblər. Mənə görə daha bir insan ölsün istəmirəm, Lamiya.

Xan says I forgive easily and he’s lucky for that; however, the truth is, I don’t like holding on to the bad. That shit festers inside and destroys you.

Lung cancer affects two out of every three adults over the age of 65.
DR. XAN XAI (HEALING LUNG CANCER : Your Ultimate Solution Guide To Learn And Understand Everything You Need To Survive, Cope, Prevent, Strive, Reverse Disease And Take Your Health Back To Normal)
Lung cancer is the second most frequent cancer in the United States, but it is also the deadliest, causing the most fatalities of all malignancies.
DR. XAN XAI (HEALING LUNG CANCER : Your Ultimate Solution Guide To Learn And Understand Everything You Need To Survive, Cope, Prevent, Strive, Reverse Disease And Take Your Health Back To Normal)
Small cell lung cancer, which accounts for around 15% of all lung malignancies, is less prevalent than non-small cell lung cancer. This kind of lung cancer grows quickly, is likely advanced at the time of diagnosis, and swiftly spreads to other parts of the body.
DR. XAN XAI (HEALING LUNG CANCER : Your Ultimate Solution Guide To Learn And Understand Everything You Need To Survive, Cope, Prevent, Strive, Reverse Disease And Take Your Health Back To Normal)
Those who are diagnosed at an early stage and are in a localized area may be cured.
DR. XAN XAI (HEALING LUNG CANCER : Your Ultimate Solution Guide To Learn And Understand Everything You Need To Survive, Cope, Prevent, Strive, Reverse Disease And Take Your Health Back To Normal)
Lung cancer has one of the lowest survival rates of all cancers due to this combination. Lung cancer patients had a 25 percent two-year survival rate. After five years, the survival rate declines to 15%.
DR. XAN XAI (HEALING LUNG CANCER : Your Ultimate Solution Guide To Learn And Understand Everything You Need To Survive, Cope, Prevent, Strive, Reverse Disease And Take Your Health Back To Normal)
Lung cancer is a difficult disease to cure. The most important elements in influencing the survival rate are the cell type and stage at the time of diagnosis.
DR. XAN XAI (HEALING LUNG CANCER : Your Ultimate Solution Guide To Learn And Understand Everything You Need To Survive, Cope, Prevent, Strive, Reverse Disease And Take Your Health Back To Normal)
Early-stage lung cancer is still treated with surgery, which is still regarded the "gold standard." Patients with localized disease have the highest chance of being cured if the tumor and surrounding lung tissue are removed.

Kim bilir?! Bəlkə də, məni yüzlərlə əsrarəngiz hadisə gözləyir? Axı mən yaradıcı insanam. Real olmasa belə, yazacaq maraqlı bir əhvalat mütləq taparam bu qədər fərqli insanların bir yerə yaşadığı izdihamdan.

The people of the Protectorate screamed and ran from the wall, even as Antain desperately called out that they had nothing to fear. Xan looked up at the smoking peak. “There’s plenty to fear,” she said grimly. “It just doesn’t come from us.

Close the window,” she rasped. “I can’t bear to hear it.” “Leave it open,” Xan whispered. “I can’t bear not to.

I remember. All at once.” He shook his head. “Why had I forgotten?” Xan pushed her wrinkled lips to one side. “Sorrow is dangerous. Or, at least, it was. I can’t remember why, now. I think we both became accustomed to not remembering things. We just let things get . . . foggy.

When the goat’s milk ran out (as it invariably did—the trek was long, and milk is heavy), Xan did what any sensible witch would do: once it was dark enough to see the stars, she reached up one hand and gathered starlight in her fingers, like the silken threads of spiders’ webs, and fed it to the child.
Kelly Barnhill (The Girl Who Drank the Moon)
Xan couldn’t take her eyes off the baby’s eyes. Suns and stars and meteors. The dust of nebulae. Big bangs and black holes and endless, endless Space. The moon rose, big and fat and shining. Xan reached up. She didn’t look at the sky. She didn’t notice the moon. (Did she notice how heavy the light felt on her fingers? Did she notice how sticky it was? How sweet?) She waved her fingers above her head. She pulled her hand down when she couldn’t hold it up anymore. (Did she notice the weight of magic swinging from her wrist? She told herself she didn’t. She said it over and over and over until it felt true.)
Kelly Barnhill (The Girl Who Drank the Moon)
Can you please magic her quiet?” Fyrian had begged, once the novelty of a baby in the family had worn off. Xan refused, of course. “Magic should never be used to influence the will of another person, Fyrian,” Xan told him over and over. “How could I do the thing that I must instruct her to never do, once she knows how to understand? That’s hypocrisy, is what.
Kelly Barnhill (The Girl Who Drank the Moon)
He did not intend to love the baby. And yet... “Glerk,” the baby said, though it was probably a hiccup or a burp. Glerk didn’t care. She said his name. She said it. His heart nearly burst in his chest. Xan, for her part, did her best not to say, I told you so. She mostly succeeded.

ran to the mayor, who alerted the League of Ladies, who alerted the Gentlemen’s Association and the Clockmakers Alliance and the Quilters and the Tinkers and the town school. By the time Xan hobbled into the widow woman’s garden, half the town was already there, setting up tables and tents, with legions upon legions of busybodies preparing themselves to fuss over the old woman. “Foolishness,” Xan sniffed, though she lowered herself gratefully into the chair that a young woman placed right next to the herb garden for her.

Kabier’s hand shot up in the air and Xan let out a single whine including himself in the conversation.
Sapna Bhog (The Long Road Home: An Indian Billionaire romance (Sehgal Family & Friends, #5))
Xan could see the memory lodged in the young man's heart. She could see how it had taken root, calcified, inflamed by his own guilt and shame.

Qocaman yazıçı Əbülqasım Hüseynzadə nəql edir ki, o zaman hökumət məktəblərində şagird qəbulu məhdud idi. Buna görə də «Cəmiyyəti- xeyriyyə» oğlanlar üçün birinci dəfə «Səadət» məktəbini açdı. İrandan Mirzə Ələkbər xan adında bir şəxs müdir dəvət edildi. O, Fransada Sorbon universitetini bitirmişdi. Fransız, fars, ərəb və türk dillərini mükəmməl bilirdi. Müasir elm və mədəniyyətdən xəbərdar idi. İki-üç ildən sonra «Səadət» məktəbini başqa yerə köçməyə vadar etdilər. 100 Yeni binada alt-üst mərtəbələrdə iyirmiyə qədər otaq vardı. İldə səkkiz yüz manat kirayə verirdilər. Buraya savadlı müəllimləri dəvət etmişdilər: Əlibəy Hüseynzadə, qarabağlı Fərhad Ağazadə, Terequlov qardaşları, Əli və Hənifə, Hacıbəyov qardaşları, Üzeyir və Ceyhun, qubalı Musa Rza Əsgərli, Mikayıl Müşfiqin atası Mirzə Qədir İsmayılzadə. Bəhrambəy Axundov isə məktəbin həkimi idi. Nəğmə dərslərini Üzeyir Hacıbəyov aparırdı. Cəhalət nəticəsində xalqın əsrdən geri qaldığını ifadə edən şərqilər, qəmgin musiqi təranələri ətrafa yayılırdı: Millətin halı nə yaman olmuş, Hamının qəlbi qəmilə dolmuş, Bir belə cəhalət olmaz, olmaz... Bir belə cəfalət olmaz, olmaz... Yoldan ötənlər ayaq saxlayıb nəğmələri dinləyirdilər. «Səadət»in şagirdləri birinci sinifdən kitel geyərdilər. Düymələri sarı, hər qolda bir düymə, bir də mavi zolaq, papağın ortasında nişan, üstündə isə məktəbin adı yazılardı. «Səadət»dən sonra Çəmbərə kəndində «Səfa» məktəbi üçün bina tikdilər. Burada kiçik yaşlı uşaqlar səs-səsə verib sabirin məktəb şərqisini oxuyurdular: Məktəb, məktəb, nə dilguşəsən. Cənnət, cənnət desəm cəzasan. Şadam, şadam təfəründən Əlan, əlan gözəl binasan.

For young Brits like Xan and Paddy, brute force was everything they were trying to escape. Biê was boarding school beatings, Victorian prudishness, the blind obedience to the dogma of “Theirs not to make reply, / Theirs not to reason why, / Theirs but to do and die” that sent their fathers and brothers marching into machine-gun fire during the Great War. Weirdly, religion had a lot to

Friends can break your heart, too, Xan,” Caleb whispered, tears welling again. “Just as badly, maybe sometimes worse than a lover.

Afterward, she'd cautiously open the box and peek inside, inhaling deeply as she did so through her nose. "Cinnamon," she'd say. "And salt. Too much wind in the spell." And she write that down.

And she looked up at the stone just as a seam appeared down the middle and the two sides swung inward, like great stone doors. Not like stone doors, Xan thought. They are stone doors.
