[Calmly, Slowly, She Reached Behind With Her Left Hand And Came Up Against — Yes, Fabric. Fine Linen, To Be Precise. So Far, So Good: She Was Inside A Wardrobe, After All. The Only Problem Was That This Linen Was Oddly Warm. Body Warm. Beneath The Tentative Pressure Of Her Palm, It Seemed To Be Moving...With Terrifying Suddenness, An Ungloved Hand Clamped Roughly Over Her Nose And Mouth. A Long Arm Pinned Her Arms Against Her Sides. She Was Held Tightly Against A Hard, Warm Surface."Hush," Whispered A Pair Of Lips Pressed To Her Left Ear. "If You Scream, We Are Both Lost.]

Judith Barrington Quotes

"Susan Griffin describes it as a time when "there is no intrinsic authority to my words." "I...clean off my desk. I make telephone calls. I know I am avoiding the typewriter. I know that in my mind, where there might be words, there is simply a blankness. I may try to write and then my words bore me." But when the time is right, the waiting will have been worth it. "Because each time I write, each time the authentic words break through, I am changed. The older order that I was collapses and dies. I lose control. I do not know exactly what words will appear on the page. I follow language. I follow the sound of the words, and I am surprised and transformed by what I record." Excerpt from "Thoughts on Writing: A Diary," in The Writer on her Work."

Koethi Zan Quotes

"Or is it the case that no one gets over anything? Is there really that much pain and suffering continuing right now at this minute, in millions of hearts, in bodies carrying on the burden of existence, trying to smile through tears for fleeting, passing moments here and there-when they can forget what happened to them, maybe even for whole hours at a time? Maybe thats what it is to live."

Quotes About Degrees

"Think how nature makes things compared to how we humans make things." We talked about how animals dont just preserve the next generation; they typically preserve the environment for the ten-thousandth generation.

Quotes About Gingerbread Houses

"The big house... reminded me of the types of structures you can still see in places like Center City: gingerbread houses, two-story affairs built back in the nineteenth century when people didnt have televisions and were forced to build interesting things out of wood. I have a theory that the outrageous fashions you see in pre-twentieth century culture came about as a result of the lack of television. Im talking wild hats on women with lots of feathers, pelts, sequined dresses with long trains, as well as top hats on the men, with long-tailed coats. I figure that life in those days was s dull that people themselves became televisions. Im still working on the theory. I include European royalty in this construct, but lets move on." - Author: Gary Reilly
