"The bell that tolls for all in boxing belongs to a cash register."

Norman Davies Quotes

"One has to put aside the popular notion that language and culture are endlessly passed on from generation to generation, rather as if ‘Scottishness or ‘Englishness were essential constituents of some national genetic code. If this were so, it would never be possible to forge new nations – like the United States of America or Australia – from diverse ethnic elements."

Luci Shaw Quotes

"I think of these desert years of mine, not of my choosing. Maybe if it were all smoothe and comfortable, if my pride and professionalism were defining life for me, Gods steel-quiet, penetrating word would have been lost in the babble and sheen of success."

Nicholaus Patnaude Quotes

"And maybe one winter it will get too cold and Ill forget about the summers we once shared. My family portrait mightfold in too, producing the same horrific effect as Jeremys: that I, all along, had another sibling who eclipsed and became me—a prosperous sibling, an imposturous sibling, who outgrew a sense of time and place in which the three of us were everything to one another. Then only my blood in the sea could unfold and lead me back out of the origami."

Marge Piercy Quotes

"If I die this instant will you be more content with the morning news? Will your coffee taste better? I am not your fate. I am not your government…I am not your mother, not your father or your nightmare or your health. I am not a fence, not a wall. I am not the law or actuarial tables of your insurance broker. I am a woman with my guts loose in my hands, howling and its not because I committed hari-kiri. I suggest either you cook me or sew me back up. I suggest you walk into my pain as into the breaking waves of an ocean of blood, and either we will climb out together and walk away."

Quotes About Manus

"Dont panic. Midway through writing a novel, I have regularly experienced moments of bowel-curdling terror, as I contemplate the drivel on the screen before me and see beyond it, in quick succession, the derisive reviews, the friends embarrassment, the failing career, the dwindling income, the repossessed house, the divorce . . . Working doggedly on through crises like these, however, has always got me there in the end. Leaving the desk for a while can help. Talking the problem through can help me recall what I was trying to achieve before I got stuck. Going for a long walk almost always gets me thinking about my manuscript in a slightly new way. And if all else fails, theres prayer. St Francis de Sales, the patron saint of writers, has often helped me out in a crisis. If you want to spread your net more widely, you could try appealing to Calliope, the muse of epic poetry, too." - Author: Sarah Waters

No doubt because the people who lived there had left their own countries precisely because they wanted more, especially more freedom."
