Marcel Theroux Quotes About Mouth

Browse 3 famous quotes of Marcel Theroux about Mouth.

"Standing on the bridge, looking across at that empty city, everything in the compass of my gaze had been set there by a human hand. Somehow those pylons had been strung with wire, and those towers raised, and roofs tiled. There had been food and drink for millions of mouths. I don't cry easy, but my vision blurred as I stared on the ruins of what we had been, and I watched the small band of men in rags move toward it to pick at it like birds on the carcass of some giant." ~ Marcel Theroux
"...the mustard on the roof of my mouth gave me the feeling that someone was removing my nasal hair with a blowtorch." ~ Marcel Theroux
"I had the feeling of something inside me that flipped like a fish in a net. It was hope. As much as I bad-mouth people in general and think the worst of them, I'm secretly waiting for them to surprise me. Try as I might, I haven't been able to give up on them wholly. Even though they are nine and nine-tenths dirt, now and again they are capable of something angelic. I can't say that it restores my faith, because I really had none in the first place, but when it happens it does confuse you." ~ Marcel Theroux

Today's Quote

Having one's mother or father or past abuser admit to their crimes or even apologize for them changes nothing--certainly not what they did. Rather, such an apology would give you the psychological permission to "move on" with your life.But you do not need anybody's permisson to move on with your life.It does not matter whether or not those responsible for harming you ever understand what they did, care about what they did, or apologize for it. It does not matter.All that matters is your ability to stop fondling the experience with your brain. Which you can do right now."
