Stacy Pershall Quotes

"The singing stopped when I walked in. They all turned and stared at me, Bonne-Bell-Orange-Crush-glossed mouths hanging open, looking at me with the same horror and excitement theyd exhibit it I had just walked into the room naked. I stood there frozen, hyperaware of my scruffiness, my shirt untucked and one ponytail higher than the other. The Bad Dog turned me in on myself like a vortex, gleefully saying, Look, look. There they are, here you are. Separate. You do not belong."

Quotes About Notte

"«Voglio sapere perché sono così lenta» sussurrò la lumaca.[...] «Sei lenta perché hai sulle spalle un gran peso» spiegò il gufo. [...] «Io so volare ma non lo faccio. Una volta, tanto tempo prima che voi lumache veniste ad abitare nel prato, cerano molti più alberi di quelli che si vedono adesso. Cerano faggi e ippocastani, lecci, noci e querce. Tutti quegli alberi erano la mia casa, volavo di ramo in ramo, e il ricordo di quegli alberi che non ci sono più mi pesa così tanto che non posso volare. Tu sei una giovane lumaca e tutto ciò che hai visto, tutto ciò che hai provato, amaro e dolce, pioggia e sole, freddo e notte, è dentro di te, e pesa, ed essendo così piccola quel peso ti rende lenta.»" - Author: Luis Sepúlveda

Quotes About Slipping Up

"Adin looked up at Donte, who was then in the middle of taking a sip of his wine. He took in Dontes demonically beautiful face, long and angular, with its hooded eyes and high cheekbones, its wine-darkened lips. He watched as Donte savored it, imagining the warmth of the wine on the inside of Dontes mouth and against his tongue. He could almost feel it as it slid down the column of Dontes throat, teasing his Adams apple into a subtle bob, and suddenly Adin was the wine, slipping down that throat, and just as inexplicably, Adin felt Dontes mouth on him everywhere at once, biting" - Author: Z.A.

Quotes About Closing Cycles

"Flocks of magpies have descended on our yard. I cannot sleep for all their raucous behavior. Perched on weathered fences, their green-black tales, long as rulers, wave up and down, reprimanding me for all I have not done.I have done nothing for weeks. I have no work. I dont want to see anyone much less talk. All I want to do is sleep.Monday, I hit rock-bottom, different from bedrock, which is solid, expansive, full of light and originality. Rock-bottom is the bottom of the rock, the underbelly that rarely gets turned over; but when it does, I am the spider that scurries from daylight to find another place to hide.Today I feel stronger, learning to live with the natural cycles of a day and to not expect so much from myself. As women, we hold the moon in our bellies. It is too much to ask to operate on full-moon energy three hundred and sixty-five days a year. I am in a crescent phase. And the energy we expend emotionally belongs to the hidden side of the moon...." - Author: Terry Tempest Williams
