[As With Dutchy And Carmine On The Train, This Little Cluster Of Women Has Become A Kind Of Family To Me. Like An Abandoned Foal That Nestles Against Cows In The Barnyard, Maybe I Just Need To Feel The Warmth Of Belonging. And If I'm Not Going To Find That With The Byrnes, I Will Find It, However Partial And Illusory, With The Women In The Sewing Room.]

"I dont do filler songs. I dont get them. They dont make any sense to me. Why would I literally waste my time on a song that doesnt hold up to the same standards as the other songs on the album? I wont play it live."

Robert Stikmanz Quotes

"If we fail, the planet will grow sterile and your people will die in hunger, thirst and waves of plagues. Our people and the thrms will die more slowly because the poisons here will render us unable to conceive. The skies will cease to be blue, the land will lose its verdure and the seas, well, the seas will be the first to go. Anything that does survive will be broken, mutant, discontinuous from us and mutually exclusive. It will be the new life of a shattered world, a world for chitinous, crawly things, not one for soft and tender emotion. I hope, child, I have answered your question."Meg said nothing. None of it made sense, but she still felt an urge to deny it, deny it, even though Ekaterinas strange, rolling words carried a ring of truth. Suddenly, the autumn chill cut through all her layers of bundling wraps. She could not stop shivering."

Quotes About Romance And Marriage

"It is noteworthy that few works of fiction make marriage their central concern. As Northrup Frye puts it, with his accustomed clarity: The heroine who becomes a bride, and eventually, one assumes, a mother, on the last page of a romance, has accommodated herself to the cyclical movement: by her marriage...she completes the cycle and passes out of the story. We are usually given to understand that a happy and well-adjusted sexual life does not concern us as readers. Fiction has largely rejected marriage as a subject, except in those instances where it is presented as a history of betrayal -- at worst an Updike hell, at best when Auden speaks of it as a game calling for patience, foresight, maneuver, like war, like marriage. Marriage is very different than fiction presents it as being. We rarely examine its unromantic aspects." - Author: Carolyn G. Heilbrun
