Favorite Estep Quotes

1. "How Horrid" has a slightly facetious tone that strikes me as Wildean. It appears to embrace the actual horror--puberty, public disgrace--then at the last second nimbly sidesteps it, laughing."
Author: Alison Bechdel

Author: Ben Goldacre

4. "He [Tom Avery] is acutely, palpably afraid of Friday nights, what to do with them, those gaping, sneering, and stubbornly recurring widths of time - how to accommodate them, fill them, use them, annihilate them. He'd do anything to sidestep a Friday night. Friday nights demand conviviality and expenditure. It's the time to let loose (yeah, sure)."
Author: Carol Shields
5. "For Schwartz this formed the paradox at the heart of baseball, or football, or any other sport. You loved it because you considered it an art: an apparently pointless affair, undertaken by people with special aptitude, which sidestepped attempts to paraphrase its value yet somehow seemed to communicate something true or even crucial about The Human Condition. The Human Condition being, basically, that we're alive and have access to beauty, can even erratically create it, but will someday be dead and will not.Baseball was an art, but to excel at it you had to become a machine. It didn't matter how beautifully you performed SOMETIMES, what you did on your best day, how many spectacular plays you made. You weren't a painter or a writer--you didn't work in private and discard your mistakes, and it wasn't just your masterpieces that counted."
Author: Chad Harbach
6. "Besides, you have to remember that the thinner air out here slows down the intellectual process, the result of less oxygen flowing to the brain.'He grinned and looked at her sideways. 'Is that a doctor thing?''No that's a Scully thing... The doctor thing is, get some sleep... or you'll be useless in the morning.'He nodded as he waved a weary good night over his shoulder, sidestepping a garden wall just before he tripped over it. Another wave- I'm okay, I know what I'm doing- before he disappeared into the passageway."
Author: Charles Grant
7. "Moving from Hope to Faith to KnowledgeStep 1: Realize that your life is meant to progress.Step 2: Reflect on how good it is to truly know something rather than just hoping and believing. Don't settle for less.Step 3: write down your dilemma. Make three separate lists, for the things you hope are true, the things you believe are true, and the things you know are true.Step 4: Ask yourself why you know the things you know.Step 5: Apply what you know to those areas where you have doubts, where only hope and belief exist today.The brain likes to work coherently and methodically, even when it comes to spirituality. The first two steps are psychological preparation; the last three ask you to clear your mind and open the way for knowledge to enter."
Author: Deepak Chopra
8. "The brother is a burden to the Christian, precisely because he is a Christian. For the pagan the other person never becomes a burden at all. He simply sidesteps every burden that others may impose upon him."
Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Author: Emil Cioran
12. "What words she had thought to write on the face of the moon were washed away from her as she submerged, trying to disturb no one, nothing. Trying not so much as to interrupt a current, even trying not to shatter into soft-edged platelets the green moon in the reflection. Trying to sidestep having any influence at all, now and till the end of her life."
Author: Gregory Maguire

14. "Yo voy, lobo estepario, trotandopor el mundo de nieve cubierto;del abedul sale un cuervo volando,y no cruzan ni liebres ni corzas el campo desierto.Me enamora una corza ligera,en el mundo no hay nada tan lindo y hermoso;con mis dientes y zarpas de fieradestrozara su cuerpo sabroso.Y volviera mi afán a mi amada,en sus muslos mordiendo la carne blanquísimay saciando mi sed en su sangre por mí derramada,para aullar luego solo en la noche tristísima.Una liebre bastara también a mi anhelo;dulce sabe su carne en la noche callada y oscura.¡Ay! ¿Por qué me abandona en letal desconsuelode la vida la parte más noble y más pura?Vetas grises adquiere mi rabo peludo;voy perdiendo la vista, me atacan las fiebres;hace tiempo que ya estoy sin hogar y viudoy que troto y que sueño con corzas y liebresque mi triste destino me ahuyenta y espanta.Oigo al aire soplar en la noche de invierno,hundo en nieve mi ardiente garganta,y así voy llevando mi mísera alma al infierno."
Author: Hermann Hesse
15. "No tengo nada contra esta felicidad, oh no, la amo y estoy agradecido. Es hermosa como un día de sol en medio de una semana de lluvias. Pero siento que no puede durar. Esta felicidad también es improductiva. Satisface, pero la satisfacción no es un alimento para mí. Adormece al Lobo Estepario, le llena el estómago. Pero no es una felicidad por la que valga la pena morir."
Author: Hermann Hesse
16. "Y lo que, por el contrario, me sucede a mí en las raras horas de placer, lo que para mí es delicia, suceso, elevación y éxtasis, eso no lo conoce, ni lo ama, ni lo busca el mundo más que si acaso en las novelas; en la vida, lo considera una locura. Y en efecto, si el mundo tiene razón, si esta música de los cafés, estas diversiones en masa, estos hombres americanos contentos con tan poco tienen razón, entonces soy yo el que no la tiene, entonces es verdad que estoy loco, entonces soy efectivamente el lobo estepario que tantas veces me he llamado, la bestia descarriada en un mundo que le es extraño e incomprensible, que ya no encuentra ni su hogar, ni su ambiente, ni su alimento."
Author: Hermann Hesse
17. "He sidestepped down the alley and into another one connected to a small garage, where a raccoon with matching black eyes just like his own halted in mid-step next to a trash can.They stared at each other, not moving or making a sound.'There there, friend. I am not here to interrupt your nightly activity just as you are not here to interrupt mine.'They continued their separate ways, who would be caught and who would not remained a mystery."
Author: Jackie Sonnenberg
18. "But I tell you, nothing is pointless, and nothing is meaningless if the artist will face it. And it's his business to face it. He hasn't got the right to sidestep it like that. Human life itself may be almost pure chaos, but the work of the artist—the only thing he's good for—is to take these handfuls of confusion and disparate things, things that seem to be irreconcilable, and put them together in a frame to give them some kind of shape and meaning. Even if it's only his view of a meaning. That's what he's for—to give his view of life. Surely, we understand very little of what is happening to us at any given moment. But by remembering, comparing, waiting to know the consequences, we can sometimes see what an event really meant, what it was trying to teach us."
Author: Katherine Ann Porter

"There was something wrong with it. Like the Demonhad adapted to the darkness and water."I shivered. "Did he have a ring that he called ‘my precious'?" I joked to try and lighten the mood. I didn't get a goodlook at the Demon, but my mind had no problems picturing Gollum.They stared at me blankly."
Author: Laura Kreitzer
21. "....hope is 'that virtue by which we take responsibility for the future.' ...hope is our positive orientation toward the future, a future in which we simultaneously recognize difficulty, responsibility, and delight. Hope is not relative to the present situation, nor is it dependent upon a specific outcome... Hope is not an antidote to despair, or a sidestepping of difficulty, but a companion to all these things."
Author: Lyanda Lynn Haupt
22. "Their secrets inadvertently sidestepped each other, unaware, like blindfolded elephants crossing the tiny room."
Author: Lynne Rae Perkins
23. "Nothing but the sight of blood upon his dark face would ease the pain in her heart. She lunged for him, swift as a cat, but with a light startled movement, he sidestepped, throwing up his arm to ward her off. She was standing on the edge of the freshly waxed top step, and as her arm with the whole weight of her body behind it, struck his out-thrust arm, she lost her balance. She made a wild clutch for the newel post and missed it. She went down the stairs backwards, feeling a sickening dart of pain in her ribs as she landed. And, too dazed to catch herself she rolled over and over to the bottom of the flight."
Author: Margaret Mitchell
24. "That's part of being an endurance athlete. Who in their right mind wouldn't find excuses to escape an hour or more of suffering? Excuses always lead to a reckoning. We find reasons not to take that first step out the door, just as we find ways to be - or not to be - our best. Weakness, doubt and fear are parts of the human condition. Facing them instead of fabricating an elaborate ruse to sidestep them - hoping to avoid them but ultimately carrying them in our hearts and minds and psyche until they whittle away at our being - gives us a direct route to hope and dreams. Along the way, we reap all those other by-products that make the suffering a tonic for our souls."
Author: Martin Duggard
25. "I ducked again as her Hellfire sword whistled over my head, and sidestepped so quickly I tripped over a chair. I was in such a hurry to scramble to my feet that for a few seconds I ran in place, like the Road Runner."
Author: MaryJanice Davidson
26. "I was born in Jamaica but was educated by, and now serve, prestigious First World institutions, so I believe that I have a unique, dual perspective. To sidestep any biases I might have, I use the objective lens of the stock market to discover which policies actually delivered prosperity to emerging markets."
Author: Peter Blair Henry
27. "The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I." And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say "I." They don't think "I." They think "we"; they think "team." They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done."
Author: Peter F. Drucker
28. "It is not by sidestepping or fleeing from suffering that we are healed, but rather by our capacity for accepting it, maturing through it and finding meaning through union with Christ, who suffered with infinite love."
Author: Pope Benedict XVI
29. "Swear to God, you come near us and–""Like this?" The biker sidestepped a slash from the hockey stick, grabbed it on the way, and yanked it out of Eve's hands. He tossed it over his shoulder to land on the floor with a clatter. "This near enough? Whatcha gonna do, doll girl?"Claire hid her eyes as the biker reached out for Eve with one tattooed hand."No," Eve said breathlessly. "I'm going to let my boyfriend beat the crap out of you."There was a dull thunk of wood meeting flesh, and a howl. Then another, harder thunk, and a crash as a body hit the floor.The biker was down. Claire stared at him in disbelief, then looked past him, to the figure standing there with the field hockey stick in both hands.Michael Glass. Back from the dead, again, a gorgeous blond avenging angel, breathing hard."
Author: Rachel Caine
30. "The second Amazon they met wasn't so friendly. She was dressed in full armor, blocking the throne-room entrance. She spun her spear with lightning speed, but this time Percy was ready. He drew Riptide and stepped into battle. As the Amazon jabbed at him, he sidestepped, cut her spear shaft in half, and slammed the hilt of his sword against her helmet. The guard crumpled."Mars Almighty," Frank said. "How did you - that wasn't any Roman technique!"Percy grinned. "The graecus has some moves, my friend."
Author: Rick Riordan
31. "Weir heard something different in the sounds. Once, during a period of calm, he sat on the firestep waiting for Stephen to return from an inspection and listened to the music of the tins. The empty ones were sonorous, the fuller ones provided an ascending scale. Those filled to the brim produced only a fat percussive beat unless they overbalanced, when the cascade would give a loud variation. Within earshot there were scores of tins in different states of fullness and with varying resonance. Then he heard the wire moving in the wind. It set up a moaning background noise that would occasionally gust into prominence, then lapse again to mere accompaniment. He had to work hard to discern, or perhaps imagine, a melody in this tin music, but it was better in his ears than the awful sound of shellfire."
Author: Sebastian Faulks
32. "A moment of reserve. "That was it? The whole story?""Yes. God, you're right. That was pants."I sidestep another aggressive couscous vendor. "Pants?""Rubbish. Crap. Shite."Pants. Oh heavens, that's cute."
Author: Stephanie Perkins
33. "Writing in other voices is almost Japanese in the sense that there's a certain formality there which allows me to sidestep the embarrassment of directly expressing to complete strangers the most intimate details of my life."
Author: Suzanne Vega
34. "I've always been a quitter. I quit the Boy Scouts, the glee club, the marching band. Gave up my paper route, turned my back on the church, stuffed the basketball team. I dropped out of college, sidestepped the army with a 4-F on the grounds of mental instability, went back to school, made a go of it, entered a Ph.D. program in nineteenth-century British literature, sat in the front row, took notes assiduously, bought a pair of horn-rims, and quit on the eve of my comprehensive exams. I got married, separated, divorced. Quit smoking, quit jogging, quit eating red meat. I quit jobs: digging graves, pumping gas, selling insurance, showing pornographic films in an art theater in Boston. When I was nineteen I made frantic love to a pinch-faced, sack-bosomed girl I'd known from high school. She got pregnant. I quit town."
Author: T.C. Boyle
35. "Q.Do you have any positive message, in your opinion?A.Indeed I do think that I do.Q.Such as what?A.The crying, almost screaming, need of a great worldwide human effort to know ourselves and each other a great deal better, well enough to concede that no man has a monopoly on right or virtue any more than any man has a corner on duplicity and evil and so forth. If people, and races and nations, would start with that self-manifest truth, then I think that the world could sidestep the sort of corruption which I have involuntarily chosen as the basic, allegorical theme of my plays as a whole."
Author: Tennessee Williams
36. "Forresten, sa han, hvordan tyller man egentlig i seg? Jeg tror det betyr at du søler ut mesteparten, sa Hwel."
Author: Terry Pratchett
37. "The wealth of America isn't an inventory of goods; it's an organic,living entity, a fragile, pulsing fabric of ideas, expectations, loyalties,moral commitments, visions, and people. To slice it up like an applepie and redistribute it would destroy it just as surely as trying to shareStephen Hawking's intellect by sharing slices of his brain would surelykill him."
