Elizabeth Kostova Quotes

"I lay awake for hours in my twin bed next to the other, empty bed, feeling and hearing the spruces, the hemlocks, the rhododendron scraping at the partly open window, the verdant mountain out there in the night, the burgeoning of nature that did not seem to include me.

Quotes About Pine Forests

"I bring you the dance. I bring you the idea that is going to revolutionise our entire epoch. Where have I discovered it? By the Pacific Ocean, but the waving pine-forests of Sierra Nevada. I have seen the ideal figure of youthful American dancing over the top of the Rockies. The supreme poet of our country is Walt Whitman. I have discovered the dance that is worthy of the poem of Walt Whitman. I am indeed the spiritual daughter of Walt Whitman. For the children of America I will create a new dance that will express America. I bring to your theatre the vital soul that it lacks, the soul of the dancer. For you know...that the birth of the theatre was the dance, that the first actor was the dancer. He danced and sang. That was the birth of the tragedy, and until the dancer in all his spontaneous great art returns to the theatre, your theatre will not live in its true expression!" - Author: Isadora Duncan

Quotes About Cabo San Lucas

"I cant give you what you want right now. Yes, your kindness scares me. Yes, Im safer on my own. Or at least I feel that way. But no. I really dont want you to go away.

Running from me. Running to Merideth. Dont get this wrong: this isnt jealously, its not that simple. this has to do with trust. In my life men can do decent things. At the end, Jake did. My boss, the DA, he has. But men cant be counted on." She paused as the tear tacked down her check, disappearing into the darkness shadowed by her hair. "I cant afford to count on them. On you." - Author: Stephen White

Quotes About Starting Out As Friends

"Nothing could be seen whole or read from start to finish. What was seen begun - like two friends starting to meet each other across the street - was never seen ended. After twenty minutes the body and mind were like scraps of torn paper tumbling from a sack and, indeed, the process of motoring fast out of London so much resembles the chopping small of identity which precedes unconsciousness and perhaps death itself..." - Author: Virginia Woolf
