Favorite Papa Quotes

1. "Love, marriage, divorce, infidelity... life was the same here as anywhere else, wasn't? She realized now wrong she'd been; the pali wasn't a headstone and Kalaupapa wasn't a grave. It was a community like any other, bound by ties deeper than most, and people here went to their deaths as people did anywhere: with great reluctance, dragging the messy jumble of their lives behind them."
Author: Alan Brennert

5. "KELIMELERKelimelere dikkat et,Özellikle mucizevi olanlara.Mucizevi olanlar için en iyisini yapariz, Bazen böcek sürüsü gibi toplanirlarSokmazlar ama bir öpücük birakirlar.Parmaklar kadar iyi olabilirler.Oturdugun kaya kadar güvenilir...Ayni zamanda hem papatyalar hem de yaralar gibi...Sözcüklere asigim, evet.Tavandan sarkan kugular onlar,Kucagimda duran alti kutsal portakal,Agaçlar onlar, yazin bacaklari, Ve günes, onun tutkulu yüzü. Genellikle yanilttilar beni.Söylemek istedigim çok sey vardi,Çok fazla hikaye, görüntü, atasözü ve saire...Ama kelimeler yeterince iyi degil.Yanlis olanlari öptü beni. Bazen bir kartal gibi uçarimAma bir çalikusunun kanatlariyla. Yine de dikkat etmeye çalisirimVe onlara nazik davranmaya. Kelimeler ve yumurtalar dikkatle tasinmalidir.Bir kere kirildilar mi, tamiri imkansizdir."
Author: Anne Sexton

Author: Barbara Samuel
11. "Going home in the trolley, Francie held the shoebox in her lap because Mama had no lap now. Francie thought deep thoughts during her ride. 'If what Granma Mary Rommely said is true, then it must be that no one ever dies, really. Papa is gone, but he's still here in many ways. He's here in Neeley who looks just like him and in Mama who knew him so long. He's here in his mother who began him and who is still living. Maybe I will have a boy some day who looks like Papa and has all of Papa's good without the drinking. And that boy will have a boy. And that boy will have a boy. It might be there is no real death.' Her thougths went to McGarrity. 'No one would ever believe there was any part of Papa in him."

"The goblins of the city may hold committees to divide a single potato, but the strong and the cruel still sit on the hill, and drink vodka, and wear black furs, and slurp borscht by the pail, like blood. Children may wear through their socks marching in righteous parades, but Papa never misses his wine with supper. Therefore, it is better to be strong and cruel than to be fair. At least, one eats better that way. And morality is more dependent on the state of one's stomach than of one's nation."
Author: Catherynne M. Valente

16. "Prom was more about acting out some weird facsimile of adulthood: dress up like a tacky wedding party, hold hands and behave like a couple even if you've never dated, and observe the etiquette of Gilded Age debutantes thrust into modern celebrity: limos, red carpets and a constant stream of paparazzi, played by parents, teachers, and hired photo hacks."
Author: Dave Cullen
17. "The difference now is that the paparazzi get paid fortunes. That's what motivates people; it's about the money, sadly, at anyone's expense."
Author: David Cassidy

19. "May choice naman yata ako na hindi umasa sa pagbabalik ni Jen. Na kalimutan na siya nang tuluyan at maghanap na ng iba o mahanap ako ng iba. O pwedeng ako lang at wala na siya sa sistema ko. Dati naman akong okay nung wala pa siya. Dapat okay pa rin ako kahit wala na siya. Pero choice ko yata na pahirapan ang sarili ko. At sa ginagawa kong pagpapahirap sa sarili ko, parang nasisiyahan ako. Masaya yata ako na nahihirapan akong mahalin siya mula sa kawalan. Teka, kung masaya ako kahit nahihirapan ako... hindi kaya mas mahal ko ang sarili ko kesa sa kanya? Kung pinipilit ko siyang magstay para maging masaya ako pero hindi naman siya masaya, hindi rin ako magiging masaya. Kung masaya siya na malaya siya at masaya ako na masaya siya, teka uli... ultimately, ako ang sumasaya sa lahat ng ito? Dapat akong maging masaya! Bakit hindi ako masaya? Masaya ba ako o may sayad na?"
Author: Eros S. Atalia

Ele nos jogou para fora do carro e ordenou que o seguíssemos. Obedecemos. Tínhamos uma arma apontada para nosso rosto. Não era a casa de papai, era o fim da linha. Aguardava-me uma morte súbita, violenta, matinal - no dia em que pisei na terra dos meus antepassados. Uma morte não de todo dessemelhante à que eu provocara, não fazia muito tempo. Seria justo, certo? Um carma honesto e quase instantâneo. Eu me perguntava se sairíamos nos jornais ingleses, se minha mãe forneceria fotos nossas."
Author: Hanif Kureishi

Author: Harriet Beecher Stowe
22. "From a memory deep inside her, so faint it only held sounds and slips of color, a tiny, three-year-old Azalea wailed, "Papa.""Papa," said Azalea to the lifeless form of the King. The word was so forgein, it choked her throat. "Papa... you can't leave us, Papa... It would be very...out of order-"Bramble knelt opposite her, grasping the King's bandaged hand."She's-she's right, Papa," Bramble stuttered.

Itt te mindent a magad ízlése szerint rendeztél be, s így nekem ugyanaz lett az ízlésem, ami neked, vagy legalább úgy tettem, nem is tudom igazán… úgy gondolom, mindketto igaz; hol az egyik, hol a másik. De ahogy most nézem, mintha úgy éltem volna itt, mint egy szegény ember, aki csak a betevo falatját keresi meg. Abból éltem, hogy mókáztam neked, Torvald. De hát te így akartad. Te és a papa nagy bunt követtetek el ellenem. Ti vagytok a hibásak benne, hogy semmi sem lett belolem."
Author: Henrik Ibsen

Author: Jared Padalecki
25. "Era consolador saber que hasta Doakes necesitaba dormir de vez en cuando. O tal vez había pensado que alguien que acababa de comprometerse merecía un poco de intimidad. Como yo le conocía bien, esto no era probable. Era más probable que le hubieran elegido Papa y hubiera tenido que volar al Vaticano."
Author: Jeff Lindsay
26. "In that most burdensome moment of all human history, with blood appearing at every pore and an anguished cry upon His lips, Christ sought Him whom He had always sought—His Father. "Abba," He cried, "Papa," or from the lips of a younger child, "Daddy." This is such a personal moment it almost seems a sacrilege to cite it. A Son in unrelieved pain, a Father His only true source of strength, both of them staying the course, making it through the night—together."
Author: Jeffrey R. Holland

You think I'm inclined to walk in on a day like today and deliberately twist his breeches? If your father says 'bark like a dog' I say 'What breed, Your Honour?"

49. "I," she [the Holy Spirit] opened her hands to include Jesus and Papa, "I am a verb. I am that I am. I will be who I will be. I am a verb! I am alive, dynamic, ever active and moving. I am a being verb. And as my very essence is a verb, I am more attuned to verbs than nouns. Verbs such as confessing, repenting, living, loving, responding, growing, reaping, changing, sowing, running, dancing, singing, and on and on. Humans, on the other hand, have a knack for taking a verb that is alive and full of grace and turning it into a dead noun or principle that reeks of rules. Nouns exist because there is a created universe and physical reality, but the universe is only a mass of nouns, it is dead. Unless 'I am' there are no verbs and verbs are what makes the universe alive."
Author: Wm. Paul Young
