    Here is a little dialogue from We the Living by Ayn Rand. The main character, Kira, has gone without a thought to be with the man she loves:

    "Leo was asleep, his head thrown back, one arm hanging over the edge of the bed. Her stockings were on the floor, her dress--on a bed post. Leo's eyelashes moved slowly; he looked up and said: 'Good morning, Kira.'
    She stretched her arms and crossed them behind her head, and threw her head back, shaking the hair off her face, and said: 'I don't think my family will like it. I think they'll throw me out.'
    'You're staying here.'
    'I'll go to say goodbye.'
    'Why go back at all?'
    'I suppose I must tell them something.'
    'Well, go. But don't take long. I want you here.'"

    I love this... Ayn Rand is all about pursuing your own happiness, and this is a really sexy example of that ;)

    "Where is it I've read that someone condemned to death says or think, an hour before his death, that if he had to live on some high rock, on such a narrow ledge that he'd only room to stand, and the ocean, everlasting darkness, everlasting solitude, everlasting tempest around him, if he had to remain standing on a square yard of space all his life, a thousand years, eternity, it were better to live so than to die at once! Only to live, to live and live! Life, whatever it may be!"

    Raskolnikov in Crime and Punishment.
