Top Quotes About Irene

1. "Bohemya Kralligi'ni tehdit eden büyük bir skandalin ve Sherlock Holmes'un bir kadinin zekasina yenilmesinin hikayesiydi bu. O günden beri bir daha kadinlarin zekasiyla ilgili espriler yaptigini duymadim. Ayrica Irene Adler'den veya fotografindan her zaman övgüyle söz etti."
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
2. "And that was how a great scandal threatened to affect the kingdom of Bohemia, and how the best plans of Mr. Sherlock Holmes were beaten by a woman's wit. He used to make merry over the cleverness of women, but I have not heard him do it of late. And when he speaks of Irene Adler, or when he refers to her photograph, it is always under the honourable title of the woman."
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle Sir
3. "I know I found his lips and let him caress me without realizing that I, too, was crying and didn't know why. That dawn, and all the ones that followed in the two weeks I spent with Julian, we made love to one another on the floor, never saying a word. Later, sitting in a cafe or strolling through the streets, I would look into his eyes and know, without any need to question him, that he still loved Penelope. I remember that during those days I learned to hate that seventeen-year-old girl (for Penelope was always seventeen to me) whom I had never met and who now haunted my dreams. I invented excuses for cabling Cabestany to prolong my stay. I no longer cared whether I lost my job or the grey existence I had left behind in Barcelona. I have often asked myself whether my life was so empty when I arrived in Paris that I fell into Julian's arms - like Irene Marceau's girls, who, despite themselves, craved for affection."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
4. "I could see Eirene well enough to aim. SO I did. I aimed my weapon and thought of Bruno locked in a postcoital embrace with her. I embraced my jealousy. Then I pulled the trigger. - Celia Grave page 372"
Author: Cat Adams
5. "I'm not pretty. The truth is I didn't think I could be a model at all. I was looking at some of the guys on the walls at Irene Marie and I thought to myself 'Jesus Christ. I can't do this. I don't look anything like these guys'."
Author: Channing Tatum
6. "When you ate her tuna casserole, you didn't talk or flip through a National Geographic. Your eyes and ears stayed inside your mouth. Your whole world kept inside your mouth, feeling and careful for the little balled-up tinfoils Irene Casey would hide in the tuna parts. A side effect of eating slow was, you naturally, genuinely tasted, and the food tasted better. Could be other ladies were better cooks, but you'd never notice."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
7. "If you look at old pictures, Irene Casey is so pretty. Not just young, but pretty the way you look when your face goes smooth, the skin around your eyes and lips relaxed, the pretty you only look when you love the person taking the picture."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
8. "Ogni sera, per riuscire a dormire, Alfredo fantasticava.Di stendere il cadavere di Irene sul tavolo di una sala operatoria e farla a pezzi meticolosamente e freddamente come in fondo lei aveva fatto a pezzi lui.O di aspettarla sotto casa, nel vano scale, tra le cantine e l'ascensore, per cingerle al collo la stessa cravatta con la quale avevano giocato spesso, a letto.Fantasticava, sulla paura nei suoi occhi, su suppliche e disprezzo, sull'espressione contratta che le avrebbe lasciato sul volto.Fantasticava, e si addormentava sereno."
Author: Cristina Obber
9. "Con Irene bisognava diluire. In un litro di silenzio le sue pretese si disperdevano lente, giorno dopo giorno, goccia dopo goccia. La rabbia lasciava spazio a nuove apprensioni che stendevano ligie il tappeto della riconciliazione, nell'attesa di un nuovo incontro."
Author: Cristina Obber
10. "Under no circumstances would it be right for me to go with MGM. Irene shares my opinion."
Author: David O. Selznick
11. "But this month is all about CITY OF JASMINE which I hope you already have in your hot little hands. My favorite review snippet? KIRKUS REVIEWS said it's "part screwball comedy". I can't tell you how much time I spent with Carole Lombard and William Powell and Irene Dunne when I was writing it. I adore the 30s comedies for their light-hearted take on relationships and adventure—and the glamorous settings and occasional dash of intrigue only heighten the magic. (Did you know that Nicholas Brisbane from my Lady Julia series was named for THE THIN MAN's Nick Charles? And apologies to Dashiell Hammett, but I fell in love with the film long before I read the book and appreciated how much it had been lightened in the adaptation!) So when you're reading CITY OF JASMINE, give some thought to who you'd like to see playing Evie and Gabriel—I'd love to hear who you'd cast in your own production."
Author: Deanna Raybourn
12. "C' è una foto che Irene ha scattato con gli occhi, un frammento, una di quelle istantanee dov'è condensata tutta la tenerezza per qualcuno che abbiamo amato o amiamo ancora, e che si acquattano nella memoria per la vita."
Author: Diego De Silva
13. "If the Gospel of Judas found in Codex Tchacos can be convincingly identified as being a Coptic translation of the original Greek Gospel of Judas that Bishop Ireneaus mentioned around A.D. 180 in his book, "Against Heresies," it will be an important step in the study of ancient gnosticism. We would have for the first time the chance to trace back the history of Sethian gnosticism to before the time of Irenaeus. This would be a significant gain in our knowledge of early Christianity."
Author: Gregor Wurst
14. "Sherlock: You're exaggerating. It didn't happen that often. (in relation to Irene Adler's texts) John: 57 times in the run up to Christmas. Your pocket was moaning more than Mrs Hudson. Sherlock: Thank you for that mental image."
Author: Guy Adams
15. "Su voz suena preciosa por teléfono...preciosa. Por un momento, siento auténtico pánico. No sé qué decirle. Me gustaría decirle: «Oiga, Irene, creo que es usted hermosa...Creo que es usted maravillosa.» Me gustaría decirle algo que fuera cierto, por ridículo que fuese, porque, ahora que he oído su voz, todo ha cambiado."
Author: Henry Miller
16. "In duminica in care Irene l-a cunoscut pe Thomas, aparuse doar apropierea dintre privirea Irenei, care cauta urzici, si camasa verde de matase a lui Thomas."

Author: Herta Müller
18. "La città per chi passa senza entrarci è una, e un'altra per chi ne è preso e non ne esce; una è la città in cui s'arriva la prima volta, un'altra quella che si lascia per non tornare; ognuna merita un nome diverso; forse di Irene ho già parlato sotto altri nomi; forse non ho parlato che di Irene."
Author: Italo Calvino
19. "For those who pass it without entering, the city is one thing; it is another for those who are trapped by it and never leave. There is the city where you arrive for the first time; and there is another city which you leave never to return. Each deserves a different name; perhaps I have already spoken of Irene under other names; perhaps I have spoken only of Irene."
Author: Italo Calvino
20. "I love threats. They make great quotes. Is that recorder working, Irene?"
Author: Jayne Ann Krentz

Author: John Cheever
22. "We sat here during Irene in '99 with the back door open. We drank and watched all the stuff fly by."
Author: John Harrison
23. "Funes discerneva continuamente il calmo progredire della corruzione, della carie, della fatica. Notava i progressi della morte, dell'umidità. Era il solitario e lucido spettatore d'un mondo multiforme, istantaneo e quasi intollerabilmente preciso. Babilonia, Londra e New York hanno offuscato col loro feroce splendore l'immaginazione degli uomini; nessuno, nelle loro torri popolose e nelle loro strade febbrili, ha mai sentito il calore e la pressione d'una realtà così intangibile come quella che giorno e notte convergeva sul felice Ireneo, nel suo povero sobborgo sudamericano."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges

Author: Julio Cortázar

Author: Kim Fay
26. "The Baudelaires looked at one another with bitter smiles. Sunny was right. It wasn't fair that their parents had been taken away from them. It wasn't fair that the evil and revolting Count Olaf was pursuing them wherever they went, caring for nothing but their fortune. It wasn't fair that they moved from relative to relative, with terrible things happening at each of their new homes, as if the Baudelaires were riding on some horrible bus that stopped only at stations of unfaireness and misery."
Author: Lemony Snicket
27. "Wherever the family was, these two dogs, both six-year-old shepherd mixes, took up their posts at the central coming-and-going point. Gil called them concierge dogs. And it's true, they were inquisitive and accommodating. But they were not fawning or overly playful. They were watchful and thoughtful. Irene thought they had gravitas. Weighty demeanors. She thought of them as diplomats. She had noticed that when Gil was about to lose his temper one of the dogs always appeared and did something to divert his attention. Sometimes they acted like fools, but it was brilliant acting. Once, when he was furious about a bill for the late fees for a lost video, one of the dogs had walked right up to Gil and lifted his leg over his shoe. Gil was shouting at Florian when the piss splattered down, and she'd felt a sudden jolt of pride in the dog."
Author: Louise Erdrich
28. "Tommy cocooned me in his arms. The same arms that struck out to protect me, the arms that saved me."In my life, I have never known, nor will I ever know, someone as strong and courageous as you, Elizabeth Irene Bradshaw," Tommy whispers against my temple. I have no words, so I nod my head against his chest, hoping he understands my acceptance of his praise. "You honour me with your trust, baby girl. I am so very proud of you."
Author: Maggi Myers
