Megan Sweeney Quotes

"[Solitary confinement] is terrible. That is terrible. Youre in a grave. You cant do anything. Everythings brought to you and youre in a room all day, except to come out of the showers. So when I would come out, I would entertain myself by singing, doing little mock concerts. And then when I was in the room, I would develop a routine. Like I have a lot of hair under here, so I would take my hair down and take all day to braid it on purpose. Stretch the hours out. Then I might write. And I would clean the floor. And I would look out the window. And then Id devote a whole day to just reading. I was Christian then, trying to be. So I would read the whole Bible. I would break it down into sections. Youre in a grave and youre trying to live. Thats how to best describe it: trying to live in a grave. Youre trying to live cause youre not dead yet, but nobody hears you when you call out, Hey, Im alive!"

Quotes About Coffee And Love

"And this is how it started. Just with coffee and the exchange of their long stories. Love can be incremental. Predicaments, too. Coffee can start a life just as it can start a day. This was the meeting of two people who were destined to love from before they were born, from before they made choices that would complicate their lives. This love just rolled toward my mother as though she were standing at the bottom of a steep hill. Mother had no hand in this, only heart." - Author: Tayari Jones

Quotes About Dealings

"For the rest of history, for most of us, our bright promise will always fall short of being actualised; it will never earn us bountiful sums of money or beget exemplary objects or organisations....Most of us stand poised at the edge of brilliance, haunted by the knowledge of our proximity, yet still demonstrably on the wrong side of the line, our dealings with reality undermined by a range of minor yet critical psychological flaws (a little too much optimism, an unprocessed rebelliousness, a fatal impatience or sentimentality). We are like an exquisite high-speed aircraft which for lack of a tiny part is left stranded beside the runway, rendered slower than a tractor or a bicycle." - Author: Alain de Botton

Quotes About Not Sure On Relationships

"All the luminous and loving episodes of any relationship you have had in your life continue to exist in the present at all times, no matter how old they are and regardless of any unpleasant experience you may have had in those same relationships. As you acknowledge the luminous episodes, they return to life. If you can retrieve their memory at any time, those moments will always be with you. The fact of whether you are physically in those relationships or not is completely irrelevant. What counts is your capacity to treasure any luminous relationship, no matter how long it lasts, or whether it is past or present. Authentic relationships are not bound by time. You are not the victim of time. By selecting and holding the memories you value in time you lay the foundations for your future memories." - Author: Franco Santoro

Quotes About Mental Illness

"Between 10 and 20 percent of people with anorexia die from heart attacks, other complications and suicide; the disease has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. Or Kitty could have lost her life in a different way, lost it to the roller coaster of relapse and recovery, inpatient and outpatient, that eats up, on average, five to seven years. Or a lifetime: only half of all anorexics recovery in the end. The other half endure lives of dysfunction and despair. Friends and families give up on them. Doctors dread treating them. Theyre left to stand in the bakery with the voice ringing in their ears, alone in every way that matters." - Author: Harriet Brown

Quotes About Parallelogram

"Ah! said Michel, tempted, you have modern poems? Of course. For instance, Martillacs Electric Harmonies, which won a prize last year from the Academic of Sciences, and Monsieur de Pulfasses Meditations on Oxygen; and we have the Poetic Parallelogram, and even the Decarbonated Odes. . .Michel couldnt bear hearing another word and found himself outside again, stupefied and overcome. Not even this tiny amount of art had escaped the pernicious influence of the age! Science, Chemistry, Mechanics had invaded the realm of poetry! And such things are read, he murmured as he hurried through the streets, perhaps even bought! And signed by the authors and placed on the shelves marked Literature. But not one copy of Balzac, not one work by Victor Hugo! Where can I find such things-where, if not the Library..." - Author: Jules Verne
