Mary Ruefle Quotes

"A boy from Brooklyn used to cruise on summer nights.As soon as hed hit sixty hed hold his hand out the window,cupping it around the wind. Hed been assuredthis is exactly how a womans breast feels when you putyour hand around it and apply a little pressure. Now he knew,and he loved it. Night after night, again and again, untilthe weather grew cold and he had to roll the window up.For many years afterwards he was perpetually attemptingto soar. One winters night, holding his wifes breastin his hand, he closed his eyes and wanted to weep.He loved her, but it was the wind he imagined now.As he grew older, he loved the word etcetera and refusedto abbreviate it. He loved sweet white butter. He oftenpretended to be playing the organ. On one of his last mornings,he noticed the shape of his face molded in the pillow.He shook it out, but the next morning it reappeared."

Quotes About Relating To Others

"No one can play a game alone. One cannot be human by oneself. There is no selfhood where there is no community. We do not relate to others as the persons we are; we are who we are in relating to others. Simultaneously the others with whom we are in relation are themselves in relation. We cannot relate to anyone who is not also relating to us. Our social existence has, therefore, an inescapably fluid character... this ceaseless change does not mean discontinuity; rather change is itself the very basis of our continuity as persons." - Author: James P. Carse

Quotes About Fistfight

"People in groups are like sheep. Like, when your very best friend is surrounded by other people, she cares more about what everybody else thinks that she cares about you. The more people there are, the more they act like animals."That doesnt make sense.""Sure it does. Have you ever heard of two guys getting in a fistfight when theres nobody around to watch? It never happens. It takes a crowd to bring out the beast. You cant trust anybody when youre not alone with them. Anybody. You have to know the boundaries." - Author: Pete Hautman

Quotes About Strangers And Friends

"This has been the century of strangers, brown, yellow and white. This has been the century of the great immigrant experiment. It is only this late in the day that you can walk into a playground and find Isaac Leung by the fish pond, Danny Rahman in the football cage, Quang ORourke bouncing a basketball, and Irie Jones humming a tune. Children with first and last names on a direct collision course. Names that secrete within them mass exodus, cramped boats and planes, cold arrivals, medical checks. It is only this late in the day, and possibly only in Willesden, that you can find best friends Sita and Sharon, constantly mistaken for each other because Sita is white (her mother liked the name) and Sharon is Pakistani (her mother thought it best — less trouble)." - Author: Zadie Smith

Quotes About Really Seeing Someone

"Relationships, like all human experiences, are transient; they change every day and are meant to be enjoyed in the present. When I hear people say you need to "work" at a relationship, what that often really means is just seeing through the day-to-day; listening to another person, listening to yourself, not getting stuck on hurts from the past, and not getting lost in what might come. To be in a relationship with someone you respect, care about and value is a gift, and when you take that in the day-to-day, you honor yourself and your partner each day. Eating is no different in that you can honor yourself at each meal. So much time in relationships is spent hashing the past, and arguing about things that havent yet happened. A relationship cannot be "hoarded", just like a meal cannot be prolonged by taking home the leftovers." - Author: Ramani Durvasula

"What a fine fellow is Quincey! I believe in my heart of hearts that he suffered as much about Lucys death as any of us, but he bore himself through it like a moral Viking. If America can go on breeding men like that, she will be a power in the world indeed." - Author: Bram Stoker

Quotes About Siddharta

"Una volta gli chiese: "Hai appreso anche tu quel segreto del fiume: che il tempo non esiste?"Un chiaro sorriso si diffuse sul volto di Vasudeva. "Si, Siddharta" rispose "Ma è questo ciò che tu vuoi dire: che il fiume si trova dovunque in ogni istante, alle sorgenti e alla foce, alla cascata, al traghetto, alle rapide, nel mare, in montagna, dovunque in ogni istante, e che per lui non vi è che presente, neanche lombra del passato, neanche lombra dellavvenire?" - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Good Friends And God

"Falling in love, we said; I fell for him. We were falling women. We believed in it, this downward motion: so lovely, like flying, and yet at the same time so dire, so extreme, so unlikely. God is love, they once said, but we reversed that, and love, like heaven, was always just around the corner. The more difficult it was to love the particular man beside us, the more we believed in Love, abstract and total. We were waiting, always, for the incarnation. That word, made flesh.And sometimes it happened, for a time. That kind of love comes and goes and is hard to remember afterwards, like pain. You would look at the man one day and you would think, I loved you, and the tense would be past, and you would be filled with a sense of wonder, because it was such an amazing and precarious and dumb thing to have done; and you would know too why your friends had been evasive about it, at the time.There is a good deal of comfort, now, in remembering this." - Author: Margaret Atwood
