Browse 4 famous quotes of Myla Goldberg about Child.

"The day's dashed hopes had temporarily reduced her to the childish presumption that someone she loved should, in return for that love, be able to read her mind." ~ Myla Goldberg
"The two bond over their mutual lack of family ties: Saul from his disownment, Miriam from the car accident that orphaned her as a college junior. Both want children. Miriam has inherited her parents' idea of procreative legitimacy, wants to compensate for her only-child-dom. She sees in Saul the househusband who will enable her parental ambitions without disabling her autonomy. In Miriam, Saul sees the means to a book-lined study and a lifestyle conducive to mystical advancement. They are both absolutely certain these things equal love." ~ Myla Goldberg
"What struck Celia most about young children was the intensity of their passions, life too new to be modulated, perspective a possession not yet acquired." ~ Myla Goldberg
"Miriam will never know what kind of dog attacked her, will imagine a Doberman or a German shepherd with snarling, angry teeth despite the fact she bears neither bite marks nor broken skin. It will never cross her mind that the dog was a beagle and that she was knocked over from a surprise more than force. The children of the house she fled will use the incident to convince their parents to keep the dog, which had been on the verge of being given away for its propensity to shit at the slightest hint of thunder it having been sequestered in the garage that night because of a stormy forecast. The family will never know what manner of burglar their fog deflected, will imagine a scruffy, heavy-set man with scars and a limp groping the family jewelery. It will never cross their minds that their intruder was am upper middle-class wife and mother of two who would have had eyes only for their Chinese teakettle." ~ Myla Goldberg

Today's Quote

Nous nous confions rarement à ceux qui sont meilleurs que nous. Nous fuirions plutôt leur société. Le plus souvent au contraire, nous nous confions à ceux qui nous ressemblent et qui partagent nos faiblesses. Nous ne désirons donc pas nous corriger ni être améliorés : il faudrait d'abord que nous fussions jugés défaillants. Nous souhaitons seulement être plaints et encouragés dans notre voie. En somme, nous voudrions en même temps ne pas être coupable et ne pas faire l'effort de nous purifier. Pas assez de cynisme et pas assez de vertu. Nous n'avons ni l'énergie du mal, ni celle du bien."
