Favorite Margot Quotes

1. "[I]t was in the pairs that the prisoners kept alive the semblance of humanity concluded Elmer Luchterhand, a sociologist at Yale who interviewed fifty-two concentration camp survivors shortly after liberation.Pairs stole food and clothing for each other, exchanged small gifts and planned for the future. If one member of a pair fainted from hunger in front of an SS officer, the other would prop him up.Survival . . . could only be a social achievement, not an individual accident, wrote Eugene Weinstock, a Belgian resistance fighter and Hungarian-born Jew who was sent to Buchenwald in 1943.Finally the death of one member of a pair often doomed the other. Women who knew Anne Frank in the Bergen-Belsen camp said that neither hunger nor typhus killed the young girl who would become the most famous diarist of the Nazi era. Rather, they said, she lost the will to live after the death of her sister, Margot."

2. "Margot winked at her. "Every so often, we gather together. We take a little time—a little cathartic time—to vent about those quirks that drive uscrazy." Elbows on the table, I leaned forward. "So, which of the quirks are we talking about?""First item on the list—the raising of the eyebrow." To demonstrate, she arched a carefully sculpted black brow of her own, then peered around at each of us."
Author: Chloe Neill
3. "."You didn't like me and we got along just fine."He felt like he'd been slapped."What do you mean I didn't like you? Of course I liked you. I still like you." I'm falling apart because I don't see you everyday, he wanted to say, but bit his tongue and said the only thing that was true. "I want you back, Margot."."
Author: Christy Hayes

7. "TO THE LADY JESSICA-May this place give you as much pleasure as it has given me. Please permit the room to convey a lesson we learned from the same teachers: the proximity of a desirable thing tempts one to overindulgence. On that path lies danger. My kindest wishes,MARGOT LADY FENRING"
Author: Frank Herbert
8. "Around eighth grade Margot started getting really sensitive about her weight, even though she wasn't remotely fat—just a little round-faced. So Margot did what any normal fourteen-year-old girl would do. She started puking on purpose, every day after fifth period. Of course now, she does more than puke. But we don't talk about that. Because real friends don't judge each other for what they do to survive in hell."
Author: Isobel Irons
9. "Margot would say she belongs to herself. Kitty would say she belongs to no one. And I guess I would say I belong to my sisters and my dad, but that won't always be true. To belong to someone—I didn't know it, but now that I think about, it seems like that's all I've ever wanted. To really be somebody's, and to have them be mine."
Author: Jenny Han
10. "He wonders if words aren't an essential element of sex, if talking isn't finally a more subtle form of touching, and if the images dancing in our heads aren't just as important as the bodies we hold in our arms. Margot tells him that sex is the one thing in life that counts for her, that if she couldn't have sex she would probably kill herself to escape the boredom and monotony of being trapped inside her own skin. Walker doesn't say anything, but as he comes into her for the second time, he realizes that he shares her opinion. He is mad for sex. Even in the grip of the most crushing despair, he is mad for sex. Sex is the lord and the redeemer, the only salvation on earth."
Author: Paul Auster
11. "I don't care if Margot is a Dame of the British Empire or older than myself. For me she represents eternal youth; there is an absolute musical quality in her beautiful body and phrasing. Because we are sincere and gifted, an intense abstract love is born between us every time we dance together."
Author: Rudolf Nureyev
