"Dear God, please help me to be the kind of person who my dogs think I am."

Rainer J Hanshe Quotes

"Writing, as most art, is considered to be essentially superfluous. Who is an artist before a surgeon? Or a scientist? But the fact that tyrants and political forces of every age have been threatened by art again and again, condemned it as degenerate or poisonous, and have silenced, brutalized, or murdered artists because of their work only serves to illustrate how significant art is, that it is our one greatest power. I would even go so far as to say that the tyrant ‘understands art more than the devotee, for the latter is generally too ‘pious and adoring, almost like a simple-minded believer overwrought by faith who simply loves and finds everything ‘great, whereas the former suffers the transformative threat of art more, is even endangered by it, hence their terror."

Vra Linhartova Quotes

"In her dream each of the people assembled around her looked like several others, whom she recognized, only they werent gradually transformed from one into the other but each of them seemed to be inside the others simultaneously and one of them shone through another. And something else was inside them as well, something unexplainable which wasnt within any of them, whose sum total they appeared to be, and this was what fascinated her above all."

Quotes About Country Life

"Show me its possible to be an adult and also be happy. Please. This is a free country. You dont have to keep doing this if you dont want to. You can do anything you want. Be anyone you want. Thats what they tell us at school, but if you keep getting on that train and going to the place you hate Im going to start thinking the people at school are liars like the Nazis who told the Jews they were just being relocated to work factories. Dont do that to us. Tell us the truth. If adulthood is working some death-camp job you hate for the rest of your life, divorcing your secretly criminal husband, being disappointed in your son, being stressed and miserable, and dating a poser and pretending hes a hero when hes really a lousy person and anyone can tell that just by shaking his slimy hand—if it doesnt get any better, I need to know right now. Just tell me. Spare me from some awful fucking fate. Please." - Author: Matthew Quick

Quotes About Finding The Right Guy

"Thats the thing of it—the really petty thing of it—I cant help but feel like this wasnt supposed to happen to me. Ive never worried about finding a guy.In sixth grade, I dated the nicest cute boy in class. We talked on the phone twice over six months and held hands at an afternoon showing of Superman III. I always had a date, the right date, for every dance. I fell in love for the first time in the 10th grade with the guy I was supposed to fall in love with. I broke up with him after a year, and that was supposed to happen, too.I was pretty sure I would never have to worry about finding the right guy. Ithought it would happen for me the way it happened for my parents and for my grandparents. They got to the right age, they found the right person, they got married, they had kids." - Author: Rainbow Rowell
