Mishka Shubaly Quotes

"If you talk to little kids about drugs, they tell you that drugs make you feel weird and act crazy and hang around with strange people. Getting sober and running long distances has been deeply bizarre, weirder than any drug or combination of drugs Ive tried. I do things now that my friends find crazier than doing drugs Ive found on the floor or sleeping in the street."

Quotes About Dark Fantasy

"I admire Tolkien greatly. His books had enormous influence on me. And the trope that he sort of established—the idea of the Dark Lord and his Evil Minions—in the hands of lesser writers over the years and decades has not served the genre well. It has been beaten to death. The battle of good and evil is a great subject for any book and certainly for a fantasy book, but I think ultimately the battle between good and evil is weighed within the individual human heart and not necessarily between an army of people dressed in white and an army of people dressed in black. When I look at the world, I see that most real living breathing human beings are grey." - Author: George R.R. Martin

Quotes About Being Comfortable With Your Body

"Sometimes, though, you make a pact with yourself. Ill pretend theres nothing wrong if you pretend theres nothing wrong. Its called denial, and its one of the strongest pacts in the world. Just ask all those people who were still drinking champagne while the Titanic went down." - Author: Neal Shusterman

Quotes About Bubbles And Love

"A hidden mussel was blowing bubbles like a spring through the sand where his boot was teasing the water. It was the little pulse of bubbles and not himself or herself that was the moment for her then; and he could have already departed and she could have already wept, and it would have been the same, as she stared at the little fountain rising so gently out of the shimmering sand. A clear love is in the world - this came to her as insistently as the mussels bubbles through the water. There it was, existing there where they came and were beside it now. It is in the bubble in the water in the river, and it has its own changing and its mysteries of days and nights, and it does not care how we come and go." - Author: Eudora Welty

Quotes About An Enchanted Life

"And he knew that he would never come again, and that lost magic would not come again. Lost now was all of it-the street, the heat, Kings Highway, and Tom the Pipers son, all mixed in with the vast and drowsy murmur of the Fair, and with the sense of absence in the afternoon, and the house that waited, and the child that dreamed. And out of the enchanted wood, that thicket of mans memory, Eugene knew that the dark eye and the quiet face of his friend and brother-poor child, lifes stranger, and lifes exile, lost like all of us, a cipher in blind mazes, long ago-the lost boy was gone forever, and would not return." - Author: Thomas Wolfe

Quotes About Echo

"My searchlight expired, but still I ran. I heard voices, and yowls, and echoes, but above all there gently rose that impious, insidious scurrying, gently rising, rising as a stiff bloated corpse gently rises above an oily river that flows under endless onyx bridges to a black putrid sea. Something bumped into me - something soft and plump. It must have been the rats; the viscous, gelatinous, ravenous army that feast on the dead and the living..." - Author: H.P. Lovecraft

Quotes About Completion Of Love

"Man can never know the loneliness a woman knows. Man lies in the womans womb only to gather strength, he nourishes himself from this fusion, and then he rises and goes into the world, into his work, into battle, into art. He is not lonely. He is busy. The memory of the swim in amniotic fluid gives him energy, completion. Woman may be busy too, but she feels empty. Sensuality for her is not only a wave of pleasure in which she is bathed, and a charge of electric joy at contact with another. When man lies in her womb, she is fulfilled, each act of love a taking of man within her, an act of birth and rebirth, of child rearing and man bearing. Man lies in her womb and is reborn each time anew with a desire to act, to be. But for woman, the climax is not in the birth, but in the moment man rests inside of her." - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Proposing A Love

"I really dont see anything romantic in proposing. It is very romantic to be in love. But there is nothing romantic about a definite proposal. Why, one may be accepted. One usually is, I believe. Then the excitement is all over. The very essence of romance is uncertainty. If ever I get married, Ill certainly try to forget the fact." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Lincoln Steffens

"Flying to Monterey I had a sharp apprehension of the many times before when I had, like Lincoln Steffens, "come back," flown west, followed the sun, each time experiencing a lightening of spirit as the land below opened up, the checkerboards of the midwestern plains giving way to the vast empty reach between the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada; then home, there, where I was from, me, California. It would be a while before I realized that "me" is what we think when our parents die, even at my age, who will look out for me now, who will remember me as I was, who will know what happens to me now, where will I be from." - Author: Joan Didion

Quotes About Lehane

"partially satisfied by grazing on the first few pages of several books, and as a consequence, there are half-chewed novels lying all over the place. At least, Im presuming theyre lying all over the place; I seem to have temporarily lost most of them. When the World Cup is over, and we clear away the piles of betting slips and wall charts, some of them will, presumably, reappear. I wrote in this column recently about Muriel Sparks novels, their genius and their attractive brevity, but there is an obvious disadvantage to her concision: her books tend to get buried under things. I can put my hands on Dennis Lehanes historical novel The Given Day whenever I want, simply because it is seven hundred pages long." - Author: Nick Hornby
