Claire Cook Quotes About Walk

Browse 3 famous quotes of Claire Cook about Walk.

"There also wasn't one single bit of grass or dirt outside the airport. Even the median strip was a concrete sidewalk. Where did Atlanta's pet travelers pee? Maybe city dogs just learned to use the sidewalk. We kept walking. It looked like if we crossed the road that all the cars used to get onto the highway, we might come to a planted-up area, but we also might get killed. Finally, I just lifted Cannoli up and plopped her down on a great big ashtray built into the top of the trash barrel. "Good thing you're not a German shepherd," I said." ~ Claire Cook
"I heard a choking sound behind me. When I looked back, Cannoli was hanging from the backpack harness with her hind legs circling frantically in the air. She looked like she was riding a bike just above ground level. "Cannoli," I yelled. I unhooked her and made sure she was breathing on her own. When I tried to get her back in the backpack, she whimpered. I talked to her soothingly yet firmly, then tried again. This time she started howling like I was hurting her. People turned and stared as they walked by. "What are you looking at?" I said to one couple. I suddenly felt true remorse for every time I'd stared at a parent with a toddler throwing a tantrum. I made a vow to be a better aunt to Tulia's kids if I ever made it out of this parking garage. I pleaded with Cannoli one more time." ~ Claire Cook
"Once you got started, all you had to do was keep placing one foot in front of the other, no matter how happy or sad you were. I'd taken that first step because I'd wanted to look better. I'd wanted my clothes to fit. But it hadn't taken me long to figure out that the biggest benefit was less about vanity than it was about sanity. Walking always helped." ~ Claire Cook

Today's Quote

Então me vens e me chegas e me invades e me tomas e me pedes e me perdes e te derramas sobre mim com teus olhos sempre fugitivos e abres a boca para libertar novas histórias e outra vez me completo assim, sem urgências, e me concentro inteiro nas coisas que me contas, e assim calado, e assim submisso, te mastigo dentro de mim enquanto me apunhalas com lenta delicadeza deixando claro em cada promessa que jamais será cumprida, que nada devo esperar além dessa máscara colorida, que me queres assim porque é assim que és...À beira do mar aberto"
